Lyrics

Road to Somewhere

Written By: Jesse Crosson


Where my heart takes me, I’ll go
But I will always call this place home
Only time will tell or show, there’s a road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere

This sound is loud, I can’t shut it down
And I think it’s time to let it out
This simple secrecy, it brings out the best in me
Sweet dreams are pouring from my mouth

I can feel it, I can feel it coming
Now I’m starting to see

Where my heart takes me, I’ll go
But I will always call this place home
Only time will tell or show, there’s a road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere now

I’m finding out, that it’s not about
Who I was, but what I am now
Now I can finally see that there’s nothing I can’t be
And nobody’s gonna bring me down

I can feel it, I can feel it coming
Now I’m starting to see

Where my heart takes me, I’ll go
But I will always call this place home
Only time will tell or show, there’s a road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere now

Where my heart takes me, I’ll go
But I will always call this place home
Only time will tell or show, there’s a road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere
I’m on the road to somewhere now

Won't Look Back

Written By: Jesse Crosson

Won't look back

I don't know where your head is at
the way you twist my words, it sends me to the moon and back, like
you can hit the road and I'll be cool with that
I'll do the same, yeah I'll be on my way and I won't look back

I just want to give it to you straight
the past few months, well I've had enough
and things, they just don't feel the same
I'm getting kinda tired of you calling me names
I'm way too strong to throw it all away

You can't always fix what's broken
You can't always right what's wrong

I don't know where your head is at
the way you twist my words, it sends me to the moon and back, like
you can hit the road and I'll be cool with that
I'll do the same, yeah I'll be on my way and I won't look back

some things just aren't meant to be
truer words were never spoken about you and me
well, i'm not really diggin' this scenery
and I've never been one to go down quietly

You can't always fix what's broken
You can't always right what's wrong

I don't know where your head is at
the way you twist my words, it sends me to the moon and back, like
you can hit the road and I'll be cool with that
I'll do the same, yeah I'll be on my way and I won't look back

some things just aren't meant to be

Walls

Written By: Jacob Gill

Oh I know, when you’re on your own,
The clock just doesn’t feel like ticking, and everything you see just sickens you
But don’t let go, I’m sick of this road,
I don’t like the way it likes to take me to where I can’t find you
I don’t know, I just don’t know,
If I can take it

These walls won’t let me breathe
These eyes won’t let me see
I need to hear you speak
These walls separate you and me
So tell me if you want me, tell me if you need me now (I need you)
Tell me if you want these, tell me if you need these walls,
To break, to fall apart
These walls, to break, to fall apart

Time and time, again we find,
All we need to do to get out is climb
Let’s just go, let’s just run away and go
Cause I can’t take it

These walls won’t let me breathe
These eyes won’t let me see
I need to hear you speak
These walls separate you and me
So tell me if you want me, tell me if you need me now (I need you)
Tell me if you want these, tell me if you need these walls,
To break, to fall apart
These walls, to break, to fall apart

Golden State of Mind

Written By: Jesse Crosson

Golden State of Mind

My golden state of mind has me reaching for the oceanside
we are side by side as our wild hearts beat the time
I have high hopes for the weekend, we'll do this right
we'll dive right into the deep end, we'll lose our minds
we'll lose our minds

I feel alive, rolling down interstate 5
looking up into the sky, never seen it shine like
Golden state, golden state of mind
I know in time, we'll learn to see with more than just our eyes,
let our worries pass us by, we'll be alright
our golden state, golden state of mind

This golden age of mine will make up for all the years I never tried
to color outside the lines and see things from a different side
I have high hopes for the weekend, we'll do this right
we'll dive right into the deep end, we'll lose our minds
we'll lose our minds

I feel alive, rolling down interstate 5
looking up into the sky, never seen it shine like
Golden state, golden state of mind
I know in time, we'll learn to see with more than just our eyes,
let our worries pass us by, we'll be alright
our golden state, golden state of mind

yeah, take in the sunlight, take in the sunlight
yeah, I'm all yours tonight, I'm all yours tonight
we're gonna do this right

I feel alive, rolling down interstate 5
looking up into the sky, never seen it shine like
Golden state, golden state of mind
I know in time, we'll learn to see with more than just our eyes,
let our worries pass us by, we'll be alright
our golden state, golden state of mind
our golden state, golden state of mind
our golden state, golden state of mind

Tired Young Eyes

Written By: Jacob Gill

Oh, shove me into light
Oh, maybe that will make me feel alright

The lights of this city
Aren’t nearly half as pretty
As the inside of our eyes
These tired young eyes
We lie down every night
Thinking, dreaming for a time
When we won’t have to strain
These tired young eyes

Oh, what is going wrong
Close my eyes and see what’s going on

The lights of this city
Aren’t nearly half as pretty
As the inside of our eyes
These tired young eyes
We lie down every night
Thinking, dreaming for a time
When we won’t have to strain
These tired young eyes

Oh, wake me up alright
My eyes can’t take another night

YOU

Written By: Jesse Crosson

If the world were to forget me, could I still count on you?
To keep my name around
If I forget all my beginnings, would you sing them to me two or three times down?
Just to bring me back around
If it all just left my mind, the one thing that’ll be here every time

You,
I’ll always think of you,
If everything falls through,
I’ll still have you.

If the world were out to get me, would you come get me too?
And take me from this place?
I think the only thing that’ll save me, is being next to you
and seeing your face.
If I fell between the lines, the one thing that’ll catch me every time

You,
I’ll always think of you,
If everything falls through,
I’ll still have you.

Just don’t forget me
No, don’t forget me now.
I’m gonna wait so long for you, girl
Don’t let me go

If the world goes and forgets me, just don’t forget me too.

You,
I’ll always think of you,
If everything falls through,
I’ll still have you.

Sing it out now!
Don’t forget me

Rise

Written By: Jacob Gill

How did we get where we are now?
To keep moving when the world just wants to bring us down
If I could tell myself what I know now,
I’d probably let it all go the way it all went down

It takes low to show you higher
I know that things are gonna be, things are gonna be brighter

This road will lead to light
I’ll be there when the tide gets high
We’ll float into the night
When morning comes, our sun will rise

I see things a bit differently now
I’ve cried and dried my eyes, then taken a look around
It only takes a bit of clarity to find out
That sunshine looks twice as bright after rain falls down

It takes low to show you higher
I know that things are gonna be, things are gonna be brighter

This road will lead to light
I’ll be there when the tide gets high
We’ll float into the night
When morning comes, our sun will rise

We’re all we ever had, what could be better than that?

This road will lead to light
(We’re all we ever had, what could be better than that?)
I’ll be there when the tide gets high
(We’re all we ever had, what could be better than that?)
We’ll float into the night
(We’re all we ever had, what could be better than that?)
(Our sun will rise)
When morning comes, our sun will rise
(We’re all we ever had, what could be better than that?)
(Our sun will rise)

We’ll float into the night
(We’re all we ever had, what could be better than that?)
(Our sun will rise)
When morning comes, our sun will rise
(We’re all we ever had, what could be better than that?)
(Our sun will rise)

Kind of Girl

Written By: Jesse Crosson

KIND OF GIRL

I saw her standing; halfway across the room
I called her over; I said “Girl I can’t stop looking at you”
I couldn’t help myself, she’s all in the world that I need

She drives me wild every time she smiles
And she trips when she walks, but she does it in style
She knows what she wants, she’s not afraid to speak her mind
That’s the kind of girl that I like

Girl, come over, I’m moved by the way that you move
I can’t get over the way you do the things that you do
I can’t help myself; she’s all that these eyes can see

She drives me wild every time she smiles
And she trips when she walks, but she does it in style
She knows what she wants, she’s not afraid to speak her mind
That’s the kind of girl that I like

I know you get this all the time
But I’m dying to make you mine
And if you give me a little time
I can love you right, I can love you right
She drives me wild every time she smiles
And she trips when she walks, but she does it in style
She knows what she wants, she’s not afraid to speak her mind
That’s the kind of girl that I like
She drives me wild every time she smiles
And she trips when she walks, but she does it in style
She knows what she wants, she’s not afraid to speak her mind
That’s the kind of girl that I like
That’s the kind of girl
That’s the kind of girl that I like

Stow it Away

Written By: Jacob Gill

Won’t you throw me a line?
I’ve drifted away overcome the tide
And I’m doing all that I can
Suspended in time by the touch of your hand
And I, I’ve seen it done
The sands of our lives,
Fall one by one
And we’re singing
Oh stow it away,
Don’t mind what they say
Thrown overboard
And I know it’s not what it seems
When your face hits the floor
I need to cut off all ties
The world outside
It’s drowning my cries
Off the coast there’s a light
I’ll try not to sink while the salt stings my eyes
Take me! Get me out of here!
Break me! Rip me to pieces if that’s what it takes.
Whatever it takes.

The Other Side

Written By: Jacob Gill

Welcome to the other side
Tell me everything I know I’m not
And I know I’m not the only one
When they cut they rarely hit the bone
So, are you ready?
Are you ready?
Welcome to the other side
Step on through and please enjoy the ride
Welcome to the other side
Welcome to this brand new nation
One unsmeared soul I know not of
Lift up your head
Why don’t you lift up your head son,
There’s nothing quite like the taste of brand new love.
So raise your hand if you know what I mean
There’s another side that we’re not seeing
I’m throwing out the rules and I’m telling all the fools
That I did it even though they said it couldn’t be done.
I’m taking what’s mine and I’m throwing it behind
Gonna find something new and pick it up and run
We’re throwing out the rules and we’re telling all the fools
throwing out the rules and I’m telling all the fools
That I did it even though they said it couldn’t be done.
throwing out the rules and I’m telling all the fools
That I did it even though they said it couldn’t be done.
We’re taking what’s ours, we’ll throw down the bars
And we won’t stop till we reach the sun
Go!
