ANTHOLOGY 1 LYRICS

Troubled Blue Eyes

Don’t know where to go

Don’t know what to say

All my thoughts are black

Seems my touch is gray

I know you don’t know this

You think that life is bliss

Truth is the problem lies

Behind your troubled blue eyes

Don’t know how to feel

Don’t know what to speak

Where did it go wrong

Gotta find the leak

I know you don’t know this

You think that life is bliss

Truth is the problem lies

Behind your troubled blue eyes

Got in a little jam

Now I can’t get out

No matter how we try

Can’t work it out

Don’t know how to go

Guess I’ll have to stay

Gotta make it work

Know I’ll find a way

I know you do know this

You think that life is bliss

Truth is the problem lies

Behind my troubled blue…

Behind my troubled blue…

Behind my troubled blue eyes

[Written by CP Pennington]

I’ll Be Alright

And in the end

I feel no pain

When all the things you hoped for go down the drain

These broken dreams

Don’t mean a thing

Even though this is the same old song

I always sing

And in the end

I will pretend

I’ll be alright, I’ll be alright

And the both of us will know it

Your face will surely show it

Right on through your black and bruised and bleeding heart

Sad sullen heart

Turn out the light

Looks like it’s gonna be a long, lonely night

And in the end my heart I’ll defend

I’ll be alright, I’ll be alright

And the both of us will know it

Your face will surely show it

Right on through your black and bruised and bleeding heart

Late at night I sit and wonder

What it is that makes me so afraid

I guess without your love

I’ll slowly go insane

And in the end

I’ll be alright

I’ll be alright

And the both of us will know it

Your face will surely show it

Right on through your black and bruised and bleeding heart

I’ll be alright…

Keep You For Myself

It’s been a long, long time

Have you been thinking ‘bout me

Could I be on your mind

Could I be your rememdy

Hard to refrain

From thinking ‘bout your smile

It’s always in my brain

Wanna hold you for a while

So I will keep you for myself

If I could only keep you in my mind

Even for a while

Hoping one day you might change your mind

Years pass on by

Things slowly change

You’ve got yours and I’ve got mine

It shows that time will rearrange

Happy days gone by

Running to a dream

Of slender shoulders touched again

This time not by me

So I will keep you for myself

If I could only keep you in my mind

Even for a while

Hoping one day you might change your mind

So I could keep you for myself

If I could only keep you in my mind

Even for a while

Hoping one day you might change your mind

Mind

White Horse

When I see you

I see you in distress

So I board my white horse

And ride to you like the rest

But you’re too far gone

It’s not my help you need

So I pass you on by

And your heart bleeds

But I don’t mind

For your heart will change in time

In silent, scary moments

When I think of you

I think of going back to what I hated

In the first place to do

But something deep inside

Screams hold on now

I find myself drifting back

To you somehow

But I don’t mind

For your heart will change in time

No I don’t mind

For your heart will change like mine

[Written by CP Pennington]

For So Long

When I close my eyes

I always see you there

The warmth of your breath

The softness of your stare

I’ve been here for a while

Sure would love to see your smile

I’ve seen a lot of bitter things

But this is what our true love brings

When my mouth meets fingertips

Up your arms and to your lips

I feel the beat of a gentle heart

Surrender to me as we drop

And unfold in sacred love

Been waiting for this for so long

Hazel eyes which cast their spell

Keep thinking of them through this hell

It’s been a year, the thought’s been strong

Still can feel your gentle tongue

On my skin and in my eyes

Takes me under to paralize

You surround me even still

Though in a daze I’ve lost my will

Then my mouth meets fingertips

Up your arms and to your lips

I feel the beat of a gentle heart

Surrender to me as we drop

And unfold in sacred love

Been waiting for this for so long

At times I feel I can’t go on

But thoughts of you keep burning strong

Let it go somebody said

Got to see you ‘for I’m dead

I keep on bringing up the past

But this war will someday pass

Then my mouth meets fingertips

Up your arms and to your lips

I feel the beat of a gentle heart

Surrender to me as we drop

And unfold in sacred love

Been waiting for this for so long

And unfold in sacred love

Been waiting for this for so long

[Written by CP Pennington]

Don’t Remember

Don’t’ remember when we met

Can’t recall a thing

Must have been the way you wanted

Me to sing

But I’ve never met

A sympathetic girl like you before

So take your drunk breath and your evil ways

And walk right out the door

Don’t remember if we met

Don’t’remember why

You need to know you’re sadly mistaking me

For another guy

It happens all the time as I try to sing

A lonely girl from this place

Wants to give me some disease

And my identity erase

Late at night

When my playin’s done

And the crowd has all gone

I say to myself am I someone special or

Is my light still on

I’m just a face in the crowd

‘Til ten rolls around

Then I crawl back in the cage

To run the rats wheel one more time

In this life we call the rage

Don’t’ remember when we met

Can’t recall a thing

Must have been the way you wanted

Me to sing

But I’ve never met

A sympathetic girl like you before

So take your drunk breath and your evil ways

And walk right out the door

[Written by CP Pennington]

Bury Me

Listen to me, I watch too much tv

And the radio won’t play my song

What has come over me, there’s nothing left to see

And I’m waiting for the break of dawn

I need a friend again to lay me down and bury me

Someone who’ll be around when I call nd set me free

I need a way to carry on

Listen to me, I got my film degree

And everything that you’d want

But something isn’t right, from what you said tonight

And you let me go

I need a friend again to lay me down and bury me

You know it won’t be long until I’m gone

Then you’ll see

Listen to me, I watch too much tv

And the radio won’t play my song

What has come over me, there’s nothing left to see

And I’m waiting for the break of dawn

I need a friend again to lay me down and bury me

You know it won’t be long until I’m gone

And then you’ll see

I need a way to carry on

[Written by Brian Stewart, Lee Geller & CP Pennington]

Caught You In My Net

With wondering awe I set you on your own

To find your way, but never be alone

My son I’ve loved you right from the very start

For I gave to you my tenderness, I gave to your my heart

Such an example I sent to you from me

To show the way and ever set you free

I cannot force you back, and I never will

For the freest gift I gave to you lives within you still

So who tries to tell you your soul I’ll forget

When time after time I’ve caught you in my net

Harbored in safety in the arms of my love

Please come to know the gentleness of my love

Time’s washed away your dreams like the waters to the sand

But somewhere deep inside your soul, the truth you still understand

For a time in your life you lived almost like God himself

Helping those who needed you never thinking ‘bout yourself

So who tries to tell you your soul I’ll forget

When time after time I’ve caught you in my net

Harbored in safety in the arms of my love

Please come to know the gentleness of my love

So who tries to tell you your soul I’ll forget

When time after time I’ve caught you in my net

Harbored in safety in the arms of my love

Please come to know the gentleness of my love

Please come to know the gentleness of my love

[Written by CP Pennington]

Fade

With the passing of each day

All my tears they wash away

In deciding all I’ve done

No one for me ever came

Now the years are past and gone

A million tears I must have cried

I cannot move

It’s bottled up inside

All my walls they talk to me

And so even does the floor

I’ve tried hard to clean the stain

But it just won’t be moved

So I’ll fade…

In silent showers of the sky

My thoughts take me away to you

are swept away

And now the dawn of light it fades

Dark shadows of the night

They seem to follow me

Locked so deep inside a shell

I’m buried in the deep blue sea

And I’ll fade…

Timeless wonders on the wire

Inventions here, inventions there

I’m in a legacy that they really work

Cast away like some disease

Behind closed doors it isn’t fair

They treat me like I’m dead and gone

But I am very here

Someone hit me, their okay

It’s just me locked up in this cage

Wish my eyes would open

To see the light of day

And I will fade…

I never knew what the price would take

I never knew what your love would make

I never knew how to feel, my love

And how the light of day fades

[Written by CP Pennington]

Flowers In Bloom

See the flowers in bloom

Dancing ‘round in the blue room

The sky is on fire

A burning desire

The children in bed

Mom’s in her red dress

For nothing tonight

Please don’t you fight

Shells being plucked from the sea

Won’t you come and find me

Cast your net to the ocean

Help me find my family

I’m lost in a hurricane

No star my guide

A shepherd I need

Help my heart not bleed

Time is not what I have

With each fleeting day

The chance swept away

Do I raise my voice

Do I have a choice

Or shuffled I’ll be

Help me, help me

Peace, be still the raging waters

I still am your friend

I’ll love you ‘til the end

Cast your eyes upon the night

I answered your plea

If you’re waiting for the feeling

I’m still waiting for a friend

To throw your arms around me

Time is something that I have

With each fleeting day

My chance not swept away

I will raise my voice

I do have a choice

Shuffled I’ll not be

I know you’ll help me

I know you’ll help me

[Written by CP Pennington]

Love One Night Away

All of my life

I have dreamed

Of a fortress ‘round my heart

Built by the one who rescued me

In my heart

Is a locket

Of a secret place and time

Where we once loved the night away

Loved one night away

In your arms

I looked into your eyes

Even more than a kiss

I wished I was inside

Every part of you

I can’t believe it’s true

Here we are

I’ll be your man

You know it’s true

And by the way I love you

I love your body, heart, and soul

You come to me

In my dreams

Let’s make it as real as it seems

I need your hand to make me whole

Love one night away

In your arms

I look into your eyes

Even more than a kiss

I wish I was inside

Every part of you

I can’t believe it’s true

Here we are

I’ll be your prince

Your one desire

You know it’s me who lights your fire

Surrender to me, let us fly

Into a world

Far beyond any space and time

Where I can be yours

And you’ll be mine

We’ll love this night away

In your arms

I’ll look into your eyes

Ever more with a kiss

And I will be inside

Every part of you

Tonight we’ll make it true

Here we are

Love this night away

I’ll look into your eyes

Ever more with a kiss

And I will be inside

Every part of you

Tonight we’ll make it true

Here we are

We’ll love this night away

I’ll look into your eyes

Ever more with a kiss

And I will be inside

Every part of you

Tonight we’ll make it true

Here we are

[Written by CP Pennington]

Killing Time

You wake up sweating

Time to go to work

You feel like you’ve been knocked down, beat and drowned

Spend sleepless nights

Worrying about your job

You’ll only end up six feet underground

Please remember I’m just killing time

In everything I do I play the fool

Please remember I might lose my mind

But this is all I have to get me through

You feel your essence fading away

Your love is slowly turning over cold

And in the mirror, a stranger you see

Remember we’re just growing old

Please remember I’m just killing time

In everything I do I play the fool

Please remember I’ve got you in my mind

And we can finally have some fun just breaking rules

Do you understand your maker

Do you understand yourself

Do you understand the job

In which you sacrifice your health

Try loosening up

Your bones will turn to dust

and blow away

I’m standing here right now

But in my mind

I know that someday soon I will be gone

Please remember I’m just killing time

In everything I do I play the fool

Please remember I might lose my mind

But this is all I have to get me through

Please remember I’m just killing time

In everything I do I play the fool

Please remember I’ve got you in mind

And we could spend our lives just killing time

Killing time

Killing time

Killing

Day Your Spirit Died

Your spirit died

The other night

Without a warning

It didn’t even put up a good fight

You needed more

To get you by

Than I could offer

Couldn’t we just give it one more try

Cause I need you here tonight

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Heaven knows how hard I should’ve tried

On the day your spirit said goodbye

You lived your life

Without your pride

But now you falter

I couldn’t even see through all the lies

Say it one last time

Look in my eyes

There’s no escaping

The situation ends with our demise

I wait my turn to die

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Heaven knows how hard I should’ve tried

On the day your spirit said goodbye

Your spirit died

The other night

Without a warning

It didn’t even put up a good fight

But I need you here alive

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Can’t you see the tears in my eyes

Heaven knows how hard I should’ve tried

On the day your spirit said goodbye

Said goodbye

[Written by Brian Stewart]

Take Me Back Into Heaven

Let me feel the way

That I felt when I had you

Lift this cloudy haze

And kiss away the color blue

Take me back into heaven

Tinsle golden days

In the dawn of a memory

Loving little ways

That you’ve always looked at me

Take me back into heaven

But now those days are gone

And I long for their return

Fire blocks the way

As I feel my soul start to burn

Your memory’s fading fast

Running out like broken glass

I see your eyes of gray

As my soul it melts away

Take me back into heaven

They say that some are strange

But I think I win the prize

Of being all alone

Locked up in my own mind

If I can’t feel the days

Of a friend who holds the key

Who wants to sing a song

Pick a rose and dance with me

Then take me back into heaven

But now those days are gone

And I long for their return

Fire blocks the way

As I feel my soul start to burn

Your memory’s fading fast

Running out like broken glass

I see your eyes of gray

As my soul it melts away

Take me back into heaven

Take me back into heaven

Captivating (Demo)

And I will be captivating to you

You know I’ll be

All my life I will show you

That’s the way it’s gonna be

When you dream in the night time

I will walk next to you

And I will be the very essence

Of all I ask of you

And I will be your soldier

At the end of your bad day

Though I’ll be gone soon

Our love won’t pass away

For I will see you on our planet

I’m looking at you now

And your eyes are still as beautiful

As a mother’s to her child

And I wil be ever watching

Protecting you in the night

And I know you’ll be thinking

Nothing’s going right

And tears will be falling

This much is true

But very soon we’ll be meeting

‘Til then girl I love you

And I will be your soldier

At the end of your bad day

Though I’ll be gone soon

Our love won’t pass away

For I will see you on our planet

I’m looking at you now

And your eyes are still as beautiful

As a mother’s to her child

And I will be your soldier

At the end of your bad day

Though I’ll be gone soon

Our love won’t pass away

For I will see you on our planet

I’m looking at you now

And your eyes are still as beautiful

As a mother’s to her child

Just Me (Demo)

Help me see the counted cost

Of all the wars we’ve won and lost

Tell me why we disagree

And why you won’t let me be just me

Of all the tears we’ve cried before

There’s mine, there’s yours

And hers, too, of course

You remember

All the seasons they will change

Like the love we couldn’t see

And my thoughts are getting strange

‘Cause in your eyes I’m starting to see me

Of all the tears we’ve cried before

There’s mine, there’s yours

And hers, too, of course

You remember

Help me see the counted cost

Of all the wars we’ve won and lost

Tell me why we disagree

And why you won’t let me be just me
