Biography

Rob Carlton, The Real Deal Guitar Hero

Have you heard of this guitar wiz from Winthrop, Maine that goes by the name of Rob Carlton? If not, get ready for the blazing hot sound of RC as he excites the world with his phenomenal playing skills. Originally from Long Island, NY, this guitarist is no stranger to the music game as he has played in many bands over the years. One band in particular, Empyre, helped Rob gain more notoriety and exposure early on his career. This band had the pleasure of opening up for and touring with such acts as: Cinderella, Zebra, Blue Oyster Cult among others. Fun times for Carlton & company during those Empyre years, but the journey was far from over.

Three albums later after leaving Empyre, Rob decided to start a new band titled Sevenfold. He would go on to tour big Christian festivals such as SuperFest traveling all over the United States. From there, it was time for Rob to make some music of his own as a recording solo artist.

The first solo album recorded would be called A Time Such As This followed by Unshackled and finally Beautiful Collision. His most recent record, Beautiful Collision, was released in 2009 and offers up some of Rob Carlton's finest work yet. On this cut, Carlton plays his guitar with such ease and precision. You can really sense that Rob was meant to pick up a guitar at the age of 12 and play on. He has a natural ability and an incredible talent that can be appreciated by millions everywhere.

Standing in the shadows of his own personal guitar idol, Jimi Hendrix, Rob has thrived at perfecting his music throughout the years. Living up to the reputation and greatness of Jimi Hendrix may not be an easy task but I would say Rob Carlton is doing a pretty damn good job in his own right. I honestly think Jimi would be proud of Rob's accomplishments as a guitar player and I feel RC would receive a Jimi Hendrix seal of approval.

Rob is representing the instrument very well and for all you inspiring guitarists out there; you might want to take notes because this man is the real deal.

Dedication is a major factor in the life and times of Rob Carlton. When he was younger, he would play his red Stella guitar until his fingers bled for crying out loud! If that's not dedication & commitment, then I don't know what is! This incredible will and strife to want to do nothing else but hit those strings continues on today for Rob. This musician has such tenacity and drive when it comes to picking up his guitar and playing the hell out of it. To RC, the guitar is more than just a stringed instrument; it is a crucial part of who he is. Rob is so consumed with his trusty sidekick that in a sense he becomes one with the almighty guitar. The guitar completes him and he completes the guitar as they live happily ever after. Rob Carlton himself said it best when he stated during our interview for Skopemag.com that: "I can see myself someday like 95 sitting with a lot of guitars playing my Taylor guitar just enjoying the peace guitar can bring to you in this sometimes crazy world". This guy truly loves playing and I don't think there is anything that can stop this intense passion. There is no holding back Carlton as he rolls forward and unleashes his insane skills for the whole wide world to hear.

Over time, RC has accomplished a lot as a music artist and also picked up some well-deserved achievements along the way. Rob has been a member of ASCAP (The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) in which he has won many awards for. Carlton has endorsement deals with: GHS Strings, Morley Pedals, Halo Guitars, Specraflex Cables and Rocktron Amps & Effects. Rob has also been featured in such magazines as: Guitar World, Guitar Player, Burn, Kerrang!, Circus & Good Times.
Rob has a 2010 tour kicking off in April in NYC at Uncle Mike's and UC Lounge. He will also be playing at the big NAMM show in California and he "hopes to see everyone there!" A lot of excitement surround Rob has 9 major endorsements includes sonicfusion pedals who have made the rob carlton seven thunders fuzz pedal in 2013,ghs strings.megatone pedals,rocktron effects,re-axe guitar stands there is a re-axe rob carlton stand,spectraflex cables,tone pros bridges,morley pedals,graph tech guitar labs, Rob has a live show with ron thal of guns n roses set for feb 15th at the crossroads in new jersey

Another Jan 8

Written By: Rob Carlton

Another Jan 8

Woke up with you still in my mind
I'm thinking what is past is past
You can't think to much of what's behind
but it's still in my heart I guess that's gonna last

Sometimes you dream and think of what it was like
you gotta smile and know I really do love you
no matter how many days go by the feelings will never change
no matter how many times i find myself on the wrong side of the road

I remember what your touch felt like
I'm taking it day by day
every moment was the best next to you
I'm trying to find more words to say
it's just another Jan 8

I'm still thinking about you
it's just another winter day
all is left is my faith
all is left is memories of what could have been

Woke up with the rain all over my face
I'm thinking no matter how high I climb
without you it's not the same
where are you now ?

The picture has lost it's frame
and gone where hearts collect like pain
it's just another Jan 8

I'm still thinking about you
it's just another winter day
all is left is my faith
at least you were here once

New Lyrics

Written By: Rob Carlton

Inside the fence around your heart
lies the dream you have been working on
so many times I've been pulled apart
just when you think I'm gone

Out comes this feeling of love
something you always beleived in
something you cant live without
so you throw down your ball and chain
cut thru the rust
pour out the pain

Not everybody you can trust
not everybody you can love
just another crazy game
you just cant throw it all away
cant you see I'm just the same
never stopped loving you
never really let you go

So now I'm the man who keeps on the straight path
the one path that leads to your door
even though I'll never knock on your door
I'll always be on the other side thinking of you

So please dont ask me for forgiveness
just when you cut this ball and chain
I'm standing here
in the darkness and rain
still wondering what was the truth
what was left but the pain

So go ahead climb over the fence
my heart still bleeds for you
my heart still needs you
so I'm left thinking what was the truth
what was the truth

Where Angels Live

Written By: Rob Carlton

Where Angels Live

Gazeing into the open sky
Questions come to my mind
what are you doing now ?
do you still question why
or do you have the answers you were always wondering about

You were more than just love
you made me sometimes want to cry out and shout
you made me want to tell the world
other times you made me want to run and hide

These days I just remember all the struggles we went thru
I kept telling you someday im going to fly
run from this place
climb out of the pit of despair

No one will know I've left without a trace
little did I know you would be checking out so soon
leaveing me to cover the pain
now you live where angels live

I'm still running the race I know someday I'll complete
out of control in the fire you went
no smoke would ever cover us all
but you lived life and made a big dent

In this crazy world
so my hats off to you
you made this place a better place to live
so now I can only say you now live where angels live

THE WINDOW OF LOVE

Written By: Rob Carlton

THE WINDOW OF LOVE

LOOKING IN THE WINDOW
I SEE YOU LOOKING BACK AT ME
WORDS FROM THE HEART IS ALL I KNOW
CARRY ME LIKE WIND OUT TO SEA
I CROSS THE MILES IT TAKES TO DREAM
STILL A WAKE YOUR NOT THERE
SO I GO BACK TO SLEEP WONDERING IF YOU WILL SHOW UP
WHAT IF I REALLY DIDNT CARE
THAT WOULD BE TO SIMPLE OF SOLUTION
IF IT WAS THAT EASY
IF ONLY I COULD LET MY FEELINGS WASH UP ON THE SHORE OF FORGETFULLNESS
SO I LOOK DEEPER IN THE WINDOW
PAST THE CLOUDS THAT ARE THERE NOW
COME OUT THE OTHER SIDE
SEEMS SO EASY LETTING GO
SO HARD TO HOLD ON TO
WHEN YOU ARE IN LOVE YOU NEVER THINK IT COULD HAPPEN
GONE SO FAR GONE
I WONDER CAN I FIND SOMEONE WHO HAS YOUR EYES?
SOMEONE WITH YOUR SMILE
SOMEONE WITH THE SAME CRIES
SAME VOICE YOU REMRMBER FALLING ASLEEP AT NIGHT
BUT THAT WOULD BE TOO EASY
LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT TO GO IT ALONE
LOOKING IN THE WINDOW
I SEE YOUR SMILE LOOKING BACK AT ME
THEN I WAKE UP AND KNOW ALL OF THIS WAS JUST A DREAM
BEING IN LOVE WITH YOU WAS THE DREAM EVERYONE WANTS TO BE PART OF
AT LEAST I HELD YOU FOR A MOMENT INSIDE THAT WINDOW
THE WINDOW OF LOVE

Mist of Dream

Written By: Rob Carlton

Mist of Dream

The depth of your love
I could never climb above
the stars in the sky

I could never count them all
do you think you will ever let me in?
will I ever see the inside of your heart
all I see is a mist of a dream

When it comes to finding the deepness that holds us apart
inside of a moments gaze
I wonder what your eyes see
I'm trying to get thru the haze
of that love I know is inside you

The questions come up were you hurt when you were young?
or did that happen as time pressed on?
did you go down the road of pain
fillied with anger and loss
landing on the bottom looking into the rain

The touching moments that we go thru
leave us battered and scared
both good and bad
but theres good news to those who keep the faith
I wait in silence for you
will I ever see the inside of your heart
all I see is a mist of a dream

New Lyrics 1

Written By: Rob Carlton

They say time heals all wounds
some pain never goes away
no matter what ya do
the silence just gets in the way

Time seems to be sliping away like a runaway train
I keep waiting for a phone call that never happens
I wonder do you still have words to say
have you ever thought to call me
have you ever cried for me
did I ever really matter to you
how did you ever let this fire slip away

Remember those times we fell asleep on the phone not wanting to say goodbye
waking up each morning with your heart in the brand new day
I still hold on to the dreams
I still see you from the stage and the light that it brings

I wonder is love all that it seems
or just something still left at the movies
so I run the race
knowing some day I'll compleat this all

I'll forever be thinking you could have been my true companion
I'm still being faithful to the call
still remain hopefull
that this is more than words that you read
So remember what it was like to be close and still hold on
to love and know I'd be loving you even more than before if you would just make that call

It's always got to be with you

Written By: Rob Carlton

There it is right on the ground
for all to see
so many different parts making no sound

I'm wondering did this just set me free
or did it turn me into a hopeless romantic
with no ryme or reason

I was left out here all alone
even if it was just for a season
now I have to run

I'm thinking if ever i could love its got to be you
I gotta say when I'm with you I have so much fun

The day never seems to end
the stars never seem to fall
I know I call you friend
but you stick closer than a friend
your just the the feeling that makes a heart go round

There it is right in front of me
for all to know
its a moment I dont want to end
and I'm thinking you will never leave me
no mater what I'm going thru

You will lead me to finally see
if I ever could love its got to be you
its always got to be with you

So I learn my lesson never to let my guard down
never let this happen to me again
but when you come round
my thoughts seem to fade away like a rageing storm

I just cant make a sound
if ever could find love again its always got to be with you

New Lyrics 2

Written By: Rob Carlton

Some words go left un spoken
many feelings are held in without showing
just like some love leaves your heart broken
others you ask yourself would have been better off not knowing.

So you go on thinking its all you can do
and you smile and realize good times are coming
its always been in your heart
you got to stand tall and go on
theres a feeling that still in my heart and someday,
I'll stand on the stage and look out to you
say all of this was what i was born to do.

All of this I'll always do for you
cause the dream is coming true
I can hold my head high because i never knocked anyone down to get there
I just poured the love on
did my best and told my story with my guitar.

Filled you up with what was in my heart
the dream is coming true
so think of me where ever you are
the dream is comeing true
even if there is a scare
its filled with peace and love
wont you come with me?

Colors So Many Colors

Written By: Rob Carlton

Colors So Many Colors

All these thoughts color my mind with visions
reds and blues drift into my head
purple and green cross into my heart
leave me still feeling torn apart

Why dont you see what I see?
Why cant you dream what I dream?
Is it because thats not what you want to be?
Or are you a fan of breaking hearts?

Running from one to the next never really finding your way
now I'm lost in the color blue faceing the door thats always locked
when it comes to your heart

The shades of pain are always a color thats hard to see but always easy to feel
colors so many colors that come into view
as it comes closer and closer it all becomes to real
I'm standing here knowing all my life I've waited for this dream to come true
flames of red getting higher as they soar into what was left of you
knowing im almost there but at what cost?

So now I dream in color and let the past to stay in black and white
still I know your out there lost
hiding in the rainbow of so many colors
drifting into the blue sea washing up on the shoreline
I'm left with so much faith hope and love the only colors left now

Thankful Heart

Written By: Rob Carlton

Thankful Heart

I'm trying to let out all these emotions
come up with another song
thinking in my home town nobody knows my name
maybe I could get my love songs out where they belong
if I could just get out of this place

Just got a call a friend passed away
8 kids left I tought my life was tough
until I answered that call today

I stood frozen with the pain inside
reflecting on a thankful heart
there was no place to run and hide
take that addiction that pulled you apart

All of this bleeds me dry
takes me to a place I dont want to go
those are bridges you cross when you have to
for now I keep thinking of a thankful heart

I love a little stonger
I kiss a little deeper
it may take a little longer
but thats ok in the end I hope its worth while
remembering you is all thats left to do
and smiling and knowing you will always matter

I NEVER KNEW

Written By: Rob Carlton

I NEVER KNEW

I never knew you could cry tears in your heart untill I met you
I never knew you could dream your way to the stars until I met you

You can count the feelings you have in a day
but at the end you have to still sleep with the pain inside you
Where is the love I left with you
Where is my heart its still waiting for you

I used to believe in you but you tore holes in my heart
tossed me aside in the ashes of desire
burnt me with the flames of passion

I never knew you could do that to the one you love
but then again I never met anyone like you

When the buildings come down and theres nothing left I'll be still loving you
when the dust settles you can't see the end
my hand will be still there for you
I never knew I loved you so much

Rainbows That Never End

Written By: Rob Carlton

Rainbows That Never End

When I think of you
I think of rainbows that never end
that shine like a diamond
bringing glory to all you do

Sometimes I worry about you
it gets me so crazy
I want things for you to always go well
you reach your goals and find your mountain to climb

I'm sure you can tell
that in my heart
you will always be
not like others who came and now are gone
you stand alone
forever in my eyes

I'd do anything for you
without you by my side that dream is lost
so it makes no difference what you are going thru
your my rainbow that never ends
your the passion that flows thru my veins
thats makes what i do all possible

Its you holding my reigns
making the colors of that rainbow
telling me that rain will never fall on me again

ANOTHER FINAL CHAPTER?

Written By: ROb Carlton

ANOTHER FINAL CHAPTER?

IS IT ANY WONDER WHAT YOU DID
DID YOU REALIZE THE PAIN YOU CAUSED
WHY DID YOU RUN AND HIDE
DID YOU THINK YOU WOULD FIND YOURSELF
SO YOU DIG DEEPER
AND FALL EVEN FARTHER FROM GOD
SO YOU FALL STEEPER
AND IT"S ALL SO ODD
I GAVE YOU THE CHANCE
BUT YOU FELL IN A HOLE
NOW YOUR BACK WHERE YOU BELONG
WHAT PRICE IS YOUR SOUL

IS THIS YOUR FINAL CURTAIN CALL
IS THIS THE FINAL CHAPTER MY FRIEND
WHO WAS NEVER REALLY A FRIEND AT ALL

SLIPING AWAY
CLOSEING UP JUST ANOTHER HOLE
DON"T KEEP COVERING YOURSELF AND TRYING TO FALL
ITS ALL SO SAD
BUT I DO PRAY THAT YOU ANSWER THE CALL
I"D JUMP OVER MOUNTAINS TO BRING YOU HOME

IS THIS YOUR FINAL CURTAIN CALL
IS THIS THE FINAL CHAPTER MY FRIEND
WHO WAS NEVER REALLY A FRIEND AT ALL

Assorted Lyrics

Assorted Lyrics

Sometimes what you think is real
never really turns out that way
so you say whats the big deal
you been in love before
someone else will come you way
so you just put in the back of your mind
bury it with all the other hurts deep
down in your heart
look ahead forget what you left behind
remember the limo ride
the last kiss in you deep eyes
and you stand up and know you just cant hide
because you would not change a thing
it was worth the ride
the summers here the winter gone
I learned my lesson and now I'm stronger then before
so it was worth the tears and all the pain
cause love never shows whats deep in you heart
until you let it go and cover it with rain

November Rain

Written By: Rob Carlton

November Rain

Woke up this morning to a November rain
you were the first thing to cross my mind
remember all of the pain
questions left unanswered with the reasons
gathering at my door leaves me to say can't we try once more

Just reach inside you heart and place me there
I'm standing there with all the passion of that first kiss
just know that you are all of the things that
make me climb a mountain

You are the feelings that everyone wants in there life
so take me from this November rain
hold me close inside you eyes
only you can take away this pain
it's a love that cries

Together as one is all I feel
sometimes you want to run and hide
don't you know real love has pain
I still take you as you are
I still dream in color
you were never in black and white

Just heal this heart broken and scared
feel the touch of love
feel the fire that dances around you
take me to the place we were before

Keep my tears from rolling in to the wind
to a moment in a heart that's in you
don't leave me behind
don't miss the chance from the man who
loves you with all his heart

Endless Road

Written By: Rob Carlton

Endless Road

It's only your dreams left now
and they are fading like a grain of sand
blowing along the endless road of dispare.

Waiting in silence it's all I have left somehow
I will always long for you touch
waiting is always the hardest part
when I miss you so much
I think you know you will always have my heart

So I go forword along the endless road
the winds are blowing cold
the magic we had is still there I'm told
if only in our dreams along the endless road

There are words and there are moments
that keep coming back to me
I remember those whispers and how you tasted

I see only love still that faded from me
what was once lost now is now found
what was once felt now is louder the any sound
sadness is now joy because I really did have you
in my life if only for a moment

So I go forword along the endless road
the winds are blowing cold
the magic is still there I'm told
if only in our dreams along the endless road

I'll Never Let Go Of Your Hand

I thought about this a long time
deep in my heart you live
no matter what's on the line
I seen to always forgive
you can hit me across the face
all the in justice you can find

I seem to bury it without a trace
still keep coming back to you even
when you leave me behind

Cause I'll never let go of you hand
I'll never stop loving you
cause you the one I love
I'll never let go of your hand

I've been told to get out and go away
never come back no more
It doesn't seem to matter what you say
I just can't shut the door

You keep looking into the sun
I pray you will look up to the fact
that I'll always be your one
please dont leave me with this blood on my tracks

Cause I'll never let go of you hand
I'll never stop loving you
cause you are the one I love
I'll never let go of your hand

There Is No Dream Left In Me Without You By My Side

Written By: Rob Carlton

There Is No Dream Left In Me Without You By My Side

There is no dream left in me without you by my side
There is only a feeling of where do we go from here
There's only painted words of something I can't hide
and shadows that still take me there.

Deep emotions that still haunt me of
what could have been linger in my mind
leaving only pain and still ask myself why
you keep pulling the knife out of me.

Why you of all people could you still touch
me in only a way that bends my heart
and takes the life right out of me.

So I gasp for air something still left to believe in
and know was it worth while, chaseing for a rainbow
that had no colors.

There is no dream left in me
there is only love
There is no dream left in me without you by my side
only moments that burn like a flame
cover the holes you dug in me
I still catch the rain
and wonder why is there still pain.

THE WAIT

Written By: Rob Carlton

THE WAIT

HERE I AM RIGHT NEXT TO YOU
I WONDER IF SOMEDAY YOU WILL REALIZE
THAT I WAS HERE FOR YOU

EVEN THOUGH YOU NEVER TAKE MY LOVE
THE MOMENTS SEEM TO WASTE AWAY
THEY CUT LIKE A KNIFE
I WAIT FOR YOUR KISS EACH AND EVERY DAY
BUT THATS ALL I GET
MORE WAITING MORE RAIN IN MY FACE

I WISHED FOR SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL
INSTEAD A MOMENT THAT TAKES ME TO AN OPEAN SPACE
FILLS MY HEART WITH THIS FEELING OF A LOVE OF A LIFETIME

BUT STILL I WAIT
STILL I FALL
INTO THE MEMORY OF WHAT WAS
STILL I WAIT
STILL I DREAM
I WAIT FOR YOU

HERE I GO DOWN A ROAD WITH NO END
ANOTHER LONG DARK NIGHT
ANOTHER STORY THAT HAS JUST A LOST FRIEND
THE LOVE HAS GIVEN ME SIGHT

WHERE CAN THIS ALL LEAD
WHERE CAN I CLIMB TO FIND YOUR HEART
WHERE CAN I FIND YOU
WHEN WILL ALL THIS FADE
AND I CAN FINALLY CRY
THAT THE LIGHT IS HERE

STILL I WAIT
STILL I FALL
INTO THE MEMORY OF WHAT WAS
STILL I WAIT
STILL I DREAM

I WAIT FOR YOU AND THE ONLY KISS
THE SHADOWS CLOUD THE WAIT

THE GATE

Written By: Rob Carlton

THE GATE

WHEN YOU DONT KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING
ITS HARD TO FIND YOUR WAY
WHEN YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE FEELING
YOU LET THE PAST CHANGE WHAT YOU SAY

IM PULLING THE CHAINS THAT BIND THE ROAD THAT STOPS ME
THE WALLS COME DOWN ALL ROUND LIKE THEY DID SO LONG AGO
NOW I SEE A PIECE OF A PICTURE THAT IN THE PAST WAS NOT CLEAR

I WONDER WHERE DID YOU GO?
DID YOU GO WHERE WE WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO EVER GO
TO THE PLACE THATS NOT OUR HOME
WHERE THE SUN NEVER SHINES
AND EVIL IS THE SHOW

THE SECRET IS HIDDEN IN PLAIN SITE
THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU IS SO GREAT
SO TAKE IT BEFORE ITS TO LATE
THE LOVE I KNOW YOU REALLY WANT IN YOUR LIFE
THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU IS SO GREAT
SO TAKE IT AND DONT CLOSE THIS GATE

MAKE ME SAY THAT WAS A JOB WELL DONE
TURN THE CLOUDS AWAY
AND DANCE THE WAY ITS SUPPOSED TO BE
SO DONT GIVE UP ON THIS LOVE
FOLLOW ME HOME

AND THE DARKNESS WILL GO WHEN YOU RESIST
WHEN YOU DONT KNOW WHAT THE PLAN IS
YOU FALL IN A HOLE
WHEN YOU DONT KNOW WHAT DIRECTION YOU SHOULD GO
THE ROAD GETS HARDER TO FOLLOW

THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU IS SO GREAT
SO TAKE IT BEFORE ITS TO LATE
THE LOVE YOU REALLY WANT IN YOUR LIFE
THE LOVE THAT OPEANS THE GATE

STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU

Written By: Rob Carlton

STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU

Sometimes I wake with a sixgun in my heart
the pain doesn't mix with the love I have inside
words start to flow like some kind a wrong start
words can break or make this a long ride
so I take a moment to reload
take a little time to say I'm still in love with you
and I'll find you soon in somebody's eyes
no matter how long what is left to do
the smokes gona clear
the dreams gona appear
even if I'm still in love with you
so remember the taste
in all you do theres a moment you will remember
watch for the shot I'm shooting
watch for the feelings that keep coming
and know I'm still in love with you
even if its still in someones elses eyes

THE LAST TIME I SAY GOODBYE

JUST AS I GAVE UP MY FIGHT
A SHOT OF JOY HIT ME RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES
JUST AS THE DAY TURNED INTO THE NIGHT
YOU BROUGHT BACK THE LIGHT

MADE ME BELIEVE AGAIN
MADE ME FEEL THAT THIS TIME WHEN LOVE WALKED IN
IT WILL BE THE LAST TIME I SAID GOODBYE

THESE EMOTIONS LEFT ME EMPTY WITH A CRUMPLED UP HEART
JUST AS LEARNED THE COST OF LOVE
A FEELING CAME ONCE AGAIN TO MY LIFE
IT CAN ONLY BE THE SUPERNATURAL LOVE FROM ABOVE

MADE ME BELIEVE AGAIN
MADE ME FEEL THAT THIS TIME WHEN LOVE WALKED IN
IT WILL BE THE LAST TIME I SAY GOODBYE

IM GOING TO TURN IT ALL AROUND JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE
NEVER KNEW LOVE WOULD BE SO HARD
BUT NOW I SEE ITS YOU NOT ME
I SEE LOVE SO BEAUTIFUL OH BABY SO HAPPY NOW THAT IVE FOUND YOU

YOU MADE ME BELIEVE
MADE ME KNOW THIS TIME LOVE WALKED IN
IT WILL BE THE LAST TIME I SAY GOODBYE
THE LAST TIME

Dont Walk Away

Written By: Rob Carlton

Dont Walk Away

Hey I've walked around looking down at this moving ground
faced up to what was put on my plate
grabed it by the power that was given to me
thought it was love instead of hate
trying to sing a song that has no words
can be a hard job in this hatefull world
my walls I'm busting them down
I'm showing you iI can reach the top
so dont you dare walk away
dont you point fingers at me
crush the heads that stops me
dont you dare walk away
dont you take your love away!
I've walked ten thousand miles with holes in my shoes
blood driping from my heart
I've paid my dues
now I'm at the beginning instead of the end
my life has been givin road to complete
all these songs do have a meaning
fix the holes I cant stand up no more give me a seat
next to the one who sees all
so dont you walk away
dont you point fingers at me
crush the heads that stop me
dont you dare walk away
dont take your love away
