Lyrics

Verse 1

When I die and I take my place

In the space above my bed

I’ll look down on my enemy, a friend indeed

The flesh the bone the mess

I always wanted to fly

But he held me back each time

I always wanted to see

But he was afraid of me

 

Chorus

And I

I’m hoping to find you, hoping to find you

In the dark

Hoping to find you where you are

 

Verse 2

But for now I am tethered to this cruel ruse

My light is dim at best

And we taste love but there’s so much more beyond the door

The heart within my chest

I always wanted to fly

But he held me back each time

I always wanted to see

But he was afraid of me

 

Drew Schofield

Lyrics

VERSE 1

You’ve got me twisted inside-out

You’ve got me questioning my doubt

You’re something crazy, something new

Now I’ve got so much more to lose

It’s all that I can take before you break me

 

CHORUS

I don’t know what you were thinking

Running ‘round inside my head

I’ve got to find another reason why you would be with me tonight

I don’t know what you were doing

When you decided to stay, when you decided to play,

When you decided to be with me

You’re something new

 

VERSE 2

You’ve got your reasons why you hide

You’ve got your mysteries inside

I’ve got to understand your love

‘Cause I’m not interesting enough

 

BRIDGE

My darkest fear, I’ve got to say

Is that you’ll leave me here alone, that you’ll let me find my own way

I’ve got to trust that you’ll be there for me

That you will never leave

That you’ll be my baby

That you will stay with me

Drew Schofield

Lyrics

V1 

Cause love it flies like the fireflies

In the summer skies ‘round open fires

You seem to be so in love with me

Yet you fail to see where it flows from me           

 I never could convince my baby so in love herself

To love herself too


V2

Cause everyone stands around to see

Just a glimpse of me and you

Our beating hearts afire

With true desire to be set on fire with love

I never could convince my baby so in love herself

To love herself too


Pre-chorus 

Cause I don’t have words

To tell you to stand by

The ones you have spoken away


Chorus

 Cause you always run

You always run back to yesterday

You always run me off

Hope you find your way

 

Bridge

And I know the end of this storybook tale

And it ain’t happy ever after, after all

My mind is screamin' out, red flags are burnin' down

And I know that Time’s gonna take you away

True

Lyrics

Verse 1

You don’t know who I am

But from here I can see

That the light in your eyes

Needs somebody to be

 

All the joy in your heart

And the pain in your kiss

You don’t know who you are

But I’m starting to wish

 

Chorus

That we could be

Something beautiful

We could be

Something true

 

Verse 2

You’re the light in the room

I’m in awe of the way

That the sun hits your hair

And your eyes burst to flame

 

I’m in danger of loss

Even though we’ve not met

You stole the breath from the air

That I had not taken yet

Home

Lyrics

V1

I can’t seem to find my way back

Through the mainline

This time won’t you step into view

Just a subtle hint and

I’ll come running I can’t

See you coming, where are you

 

CHORUS

Help me find home again

Help me come home again

Where’s home again?

I couldn’t see beyond the foreground

To the background

And that’s where you live


V2

I can’t help but feel a little

Mixed up and belittled

What’s the path I’m on?

Come be the light unto my lost feet

The candle to this dark street

My rescue thereupon

Easy

Lyrics

Verse 1   

Love

Comes easy for you

So easy it’s true

But it’s not so easy

 

Hurt

Was written for me

This song I sing

Is not so easy

 

Time is not my friend

Time has never been

No it’s not so easy

 

Chorus      

For You

I’d wait in line

I’d hold my breath until you open up your eyes

 

(2nd time through)

For you

I’d serve my time

So here’s the key, just throw it away and wait and see

 

Verse 2

Alone

Is where I’ll go

It’s where I have known

That’s it’s not so easy

 

Light

I’m dying to see

Please, God, let it be

Just a little bit easy

 

Time is not my friend

Time has never been

No it’s not that easy

 

Bridge  

Everyone surrounding me, tryin to lie to me, to say that you’re mine

Take a look around, lift me off the ground, will it make a difference this time

Try to make my peace, make the madness cease

 

But it’s the same old thing

Darling for you I bleed

Wish you’d just let me be

Drew Schofield

Lyrics

Verse 1

Your empty Promises are weighing in

The serpent’s tongue has bought your ear

Deception weaves a tune like violins

Composing twisted works of fear

 

Chorus

And I’ll be here my friend

Despite this painful end

To innocence you spent away

(2nd time)

And if you ever feel

The urge to guard your heel

Then when it’s over fly away

 

Verse 2

You writhe around for seems like years on end

You just can’t seem to shake the beast

His lying eyes are fixed and focused in

Just one more hit will set you free

 

Bridge

Come and see me when it’s over

Cause it’s over here but you’re just hangin on

Come and see me when it’s over

Cause it’s over here but you’re just hangin on

 

Drew Schofield

Lyrics

Verse 1 

Do you remember who we were

We used to laugh and tempt the curse

We sang our hearts out in the rain

Hoping we’d never feel the pain


La de da da da da, la de da da da da  


Chorus

Do you recall that fateful day

When you took all my breath away

Do you remember place and time

When you chose water over wine


La de da da da da, La de da da da da

 

Verse 2

He was your father’s favorite boy

The one you never did deserve

And now you think it’s all your fault

But you could never do enough


La de da da da da, la de da da da da


Chorus

Do you recall that fateful day

When you took all my breath away

Do you remember place and time

When you chose water over wine 


      You chose his world instead of mine

      You broke my heart and left behind…


La de da da da da, La de da da da da


Verse 3

 I saw you just the other day

With all your hair up in your face

You think those lenses hide the pain

From a world you left behind that day


La de da da da da, la de da da da da

Drew Schofield

Lyrics

V1 

It’s hard to believe that it’s all come to pass

I’m standing alone now amazed that it’s gone so fast

One day a lover the next day a stranger

And now it seems no memories are without you

 

Chorus

I’ll take the long way home

Driving around all the places you go

Where your light shines on

You shine on, shine on

 

V2 

Our love was a moment of joy in the storm

I’m glad I could share this time keeping you warm

But now I must go, I must walk through the rain

But some say the catalyst for good is pain

 

Bridge

And I’ve watched these darker shadows

Cloud up my eyesight, block out my sunlight

Till I felt that there’s nothing left here to take

And I stopped keeping track of all my thoughts

Now I finally see how it’s meant to be

Drew Schofield

Lyrics

V1

Away We Go

And I should have known

When Darkness had covered the land

That you’d be the hope in my hand

 

V2

Here’s what I know

Life took a toll

But just in time you were there

Arms open wide, you were there           

 

Chorus

You and I are trying to find a light

Inside a broken dream

If I could just believe

You and I are trying to make it right

All that I want and more

It’s back to the drawing board

And Away               

We go
