One of the Ones

  • 1. I Should Go

    Here we are
    Isn’t it familiar
    I haven’t had someone to talk to
    In such a long time
    And it’s strange
    All we have in common
    And your company was just the thing I needed tonight
    But somehow I feel I should apologize
    Cause I’m just a little shaken
    By what’s going on inside

    I should go
    Before my will gets any weaker
    And my eyes begin to linger
    Longer than they should
    I should go
    Before I lose my sense of reason
    And this hour holds more meaning
    Than it ever could
    I should go
    I should go
    Baby, I should go

    It’s so hard
    Keeping my composure
    And pretend I don’t see how
    Your body curves beneath your clothes
    And your laugh
    Is pure and unaffected
    It frightens me to know so well the place I shouldn’t go
    But I know I gotta take the noble path
    Cuz I don’t want you to question
    The intentions that I have

    I should go
    Before my will gets any weaker
    And my eyes begin to linger
    Longer than they should
    I should go
    Before I lose my sense of reason
    And this hour holds more meaning
    Than it ever could
    I should go
    I should go
    Baby, I should go

    I don’t mean to leave you with a trivial excuse
    And when you call tomorrow, I’ll know what to do

    But I should go
    Before my will gets any weaker
    And my eyes begin to linger
    Longer than they should
    I should go
    Before I lose my sense of reason
    And this hour holds more meaning
    Than it ever could
    I should go
    I should go
    Baby, I should go

  • 2. With You

    I used to be
    The life of the party
    The man of the hour
    The one in control
    Never a question
    No hesitation
    Get who I want
    And then I’d move on
    But you’ve stolen my thunder
    Taken me under
    By something so real

    With you
    I can’t speak
    I can’t move
    I can hardly breathe
    I’m a fumbling boy
    Whose never felt something like this
    And it’s just how it is with you

    I’m paralyzed
    By the light of an angel
    You may be all I’ve been dreaming of
    And I know the likes
    Of infatuation
    And I’d be surprised if this isn’t love
    Cause I just wanna break through
    Reach out and feel you
    Fall into me, yeah

    With you
    I can’t speak
    I can’t move
    I can hardly breathe
    I’m a rambling boy
    Whose never felt something like this
    And it’s just how it is with you

    Oh, and I want to reach out and touch you
    Feel you consume me
    Fall into me

    With you
    I can’t speak
    I can’t move
    I can hardly breathe
    I’m a fumbling boy
    Whose never felt something like this
    And it’s just how it is
    Oh, yeah, it’s just how it is
    With You

  • 3. Hardly a Hero

    Just an ordinary man
    Thrown into a life I didn’t plan
    Suddenly my world has changed
    I’m unprepared to make my way
    My resolve is growing weak
    So unsure of who I’m supposed to be
    The one who takes the noble path
    Or the one who wants what he can never have

    And I’m hardly the hero
    This is the only thing I know to do
    To make it through
    But I need you to believe
    That beneath this bravado
    I’d still give anything to have a chance
    To get you back
    And I’m hardly a hero for that

    Exuberant and terrified
    Every time I look into your eyes
    But I can’t entertain the thought
    Cuz we both know I’m not the man you thought I was

    And I’m hardly the hero
    This is the only thing I know to do
    To make it through
    But I need you to believe
    That beneath this bravado
    I’d still give anything to have a chance
    To get you back
    And I’m hardly a hero for that

    The ones I love will always be
    The ones who pay the price
    And so I sit outside my dreams
    To do the thing that’s right
    And keep it all inside

    And I’m hardly the hero
    This is the only thing I know to do
    To make it through
    But I need you to believe
    That beneath this bravado
    I’d still give anything to have a chance
    To love again
    And I’m hardly the hero for that
    Yeah I’m hardly a hero

  • 4. Hold You All Night

    I’ve been drinking myself into oblivion
    The deeper the pain the harder to deaden
    Staring into space
    Tuning out the bar
    Coming up for air
    Only to seek a minor distraction
    But escaping doesn’t get me very far
    Away
    From the cords that we entangled
    Away
    From the smile I used to know

    And I would hold you all night
    If there was such a thing as second chances
    If I had just made different choices
    I’d know how to live again
    And I would hold you all night
    And pray the morning light would never wake you
    And time would stop to heal the pain I gave you
    Baby, I would hold you all night

    I’ve been finding myself in harsh realizations
    Hearing the truth in your indignation
    There is such a thing
    As being too strong
    I was unaware
    I made myself into an island
    Too afraid to let you in too long
    You tried
    Giving all your heart could offer
    I tried
    But my efforts were too late

    And I would hold you all night
    If there was such a thing as second chances
    If I had just made different choices
    I’d know how to live again
    And I would hold you all night
    And pray the morning light would never wake you
    And time would stop to heal the pain I gave you
    Baby, I would hold you all night

    If I could take back every word I said
    And resurrect us from the dead
    I’d thank God beneath my breath
    And never let you go

    And I would hold you all night
    If there was such a thing as second chances
    If I had just made different choices
    I’d know how to live again
    And I would hold you all night
    And pray the morning light would never wake you
    And time would stop to heal the pain I gave you
    Baby, I would hold you all night
    Baby, I would hold you all night
    Baby, I would hold you all night

  • 5. Lonely Sunday Morning

    I can still taste you on my lips
    I can still smell you on my sheets
    I can still feel the way you tremble
    When I hold you close to me
    It’s like everything about you
    Is everything I need
    And waking up without you
    Is gonna be the death of me
    I’m not so used to silence
    And I can’t find you anywhere

    It’s a lonely Sunday morning
    Cause you left me without warning
    And I don’t know how to make it
    Through this lonely Sunday morning

    Last night I took your picture
    Out of my dresser drawer
    And said the words that I wish
    I could not say anymore
    The truth is that I love you
    And I’m doing all I can
    To make myself forget the way
    It feels to be your man
    And I gotta find a reason
    To face another day

    It’s a lonely Sunday morning
    Cause you left me without warning
    And I don’t know how to make it
    Through this lonely Sunday morning

    I should just crawl back in bed
    Shut out my heart
    Turn off my head
    But it’s impossible to do
    Cause my whole world was you
    Yeah, my whole world was you

    It’s a lonely Sunday morning
    Cause you left me without warning
    And I don’t know how to make it
    Through this lonely Sunday morning

  • 6. Love in Another Light

    Turn down the dial
    I don’t want another
    Lesson in something I’ve had enough of
    It’s all the same
    A big misconception
    Thinking I’d find what I was looking for
    Love is not just a fix anymore
    A man needs to feel something more
    So maybe it’s time that I

    Tear down the walls
    Open my eyes
    I wanna know love in another light
    There’s got to be
    More to this life
    Let me know love in another light

    Too many nights
    I fed from the ruin
    Of manic pursuits that left nothing to gain
    In desolate bars
    Drowning in whiskey
    In back rooms with boys that don’t have a name
    At some point we all want the same
    To live and let go of the pain
    So maybe it’s time that I

    Tear down the walls
    Open my eyes
    I wanna know love in another light
    There’s got to be
    More to this life
    Let me know love in another light

    Love that’s as deep as the ocean
    I just want to feel some emotion
    So maybe it’s time that I

    Tear down the walls
    Open my eyes
    I wanna know love in another light
    There’s got to be
    More to this life
    Let me know love in another light

  • 7. Just This Good

    Baby, I can’t believe
    What’s happening to me
    As I look at you
    Lying naked with me
    A realm of emotion
    Beyond this embrace
    Leaves me with nothing to say

    Now, I’ve been a man
    Conditioned to think
    That love was no more
    Than a hollow routine
    But when I feel your body
    Moving slowly with mine
    It’s then that I realize

    Baby it’s just this good
    I never thought I could
    Feel such love in my soul
    You’re the reason I know
    That it’s just this good

    You’ve given me
    What my soul seeks to find
    A love that reveals
    A greater design
    Oh, and I’ve always wondered
    What heaven was like
    Strange that I never saw
    Heaven was here all along

    And baby it’s just this good
    I never thought I could
    Feel such love in my soul
    You’re the reason I know
    That it’s just this good

    Baby it’s just this
    One kiss
    And I’m a believer
    Hallelujah
    Cause baby we are just this good
    I never, never thought I could
    Feel such love in my soul
    You’re the reason I know
    That it’s just this good, ya’ll
    Baby, it’s just this good

  • 8. Left Over

    I remember the day I laid eyes on that sweet Georgia smile
    With your rosy complexion and your brown winter coat
    You made my acquaintance and laughed through that cute little nose
    From first kiss, to first touch, to first time that we’d ever made love
    We could both fill a novel with eloquent memories
    Of fumbling passions, of personal struggles
    A burgeoning friendship I always believed would grow old

    But I guess I’m the one left over
    Cause we don’t resemble who we were before
    I guess once that ship has pulled out of that harbor
    The things that had measure don’t measure up anymore

    With 12 years behind us I can’t say that I understand
    But friends grow together and friends grow apart
    And friends get replaced even though it may hurt a friend’s heart
    But aside all of this what I want more than anything else
    Is to have just a moment when you stop pretending
    You look at me in earnest, admit that we’re strangers
    And you’ve no intention to face what you’d rather ignore

    So I guess I’m the one left over
    Cause we don’t resemble who we were before
    I guess once that ship has pulled out of that harbor
    The things that had measure don’t measure up anymore

    Yeah I guess I’m the one left over
    Cause we don’t resemble who we were before
    I guess once that ship has pulled out of that harbor
    The things that had measure don’t measure up anymore
    The things that had measure don’t measure up anymore

  • 9. Kiss You Yet

    You move through me
    Like the ocean underneath the full moon
    And your touch warms me
    Like the sun above a summer afternoon
    And I’ve never been so swept away
    There’s so much love that we could make but

    Ooh, I don’t wanna kiss you yet
    I wanna feel your breath
    And look into your eyes so blue
    I don’t wanna kiss you yet
    Cause just anticipating
    Is so intoxicating

    I’ll be honest
    I don’t understand what’s coming over me
    Fearless, breathless
    Face to face with you is where I wanna be
    Baby. believe me when I say
    I got all the time it’s gonna take but

    Ooh I don’t wanna kiss you yet
    I wanna feel your breath
    And look into your eyes so blue
    I don’t wanna kiss you yet
    Cause just anticipating
    Is so intoxicating

    These are the moments love is made of
    You’re someone I think I could be sure of
    So baby before we kiss
    I wanna remember you just like this
    Just like this

    I wanna feel your breath
    And look into your eyes so blue
    Don’t wanna kiss you yet
    Cause just anticipating
    Is so intoxicating

  • 10. Man Outta Me

    Something that I never said
    A story that I’ve never shared
    I was only 20 years old
    He was a love affair
    Soon became a humble home
    Wrecked with animosity
    He took it to the bottle
    And turned around and took it out on me
    And I was just a boy
    A scrawny little boy
    A naive, faggot little boy
    Too confused by love to leave
    Too abused by you to see
    That you were

    Maniacal
    Certifiable
    It’s comical
    When I’m looking back I see
    You made a man outta me

    Life has been so good to me
    Taught me things about the soul
    If pain is just an error in thought
    Then I’m in full control
    Glad I started long ago
    Learning in the hardest way
    Cause now I know my power
    And that bullshit would never fly today
    But I was just a boy
    A sheltered little boy
    I let you own that little boy
    Might have been too young to see
    But look what you made of me by being…

    Maniacal
    Certifiable
    It’s comical
    When I’m looking back I see
    You made a man outta me

    And I was just a boy
    Misguided little boy
    I let you use that little boy
    Might have been too young to see
    But just look what you made of me by being…

    Maniacal
    Certifiable
    It’s comical
    When I’m looking back I see
    You made a man outta me
    You made a man outta me
    You made a man outta me
