Lyrics

Save You

Written By: Stormy Strong

Streetlamps, they serve to light your path
And in, an ordinary way
I can somehow take the wrath
Just like the darkness claims the day
So close, but yet so far away
The fear, was always in your eyes
I know the words are hard to say
Sometimes the lights don't shine

I will be with you
When the sun goes down
Though the light is dim
Illuminates your frown
When afraid and lonely I will call
To save you from it
When afraid and lonely I will call
To save you from it all

Now you will always be with me
Each lip, each line and every lash
And even if just memory
I will cherish every flash
I know the shadows haunt you still
I've tried to kill them where they play
You light a candle when you wake
And the darkness fades

Rivers are winding
I hear her sighing
Beside me
Have you seen her smile, I know it's priceless
Like when you're falling
You hear her calling Within you
A thief of hearts she never looks back, never looks back

She

Written By: Stormy Strong

Six thousand miles away
And still I see her face
I could never recognize
Nothing could take her place
At times I was so distant
Even when so close to her
And when my dark clouds gathered
I knew we could make it through

She sits, inside four empty walls
She hears, that someone out there calls
She's looking to the past
But she can't move forward and we can't go back

Now here I am again
Lost in this dream I call my life
Drawing the distance now
And with each mile I'm losing sight
I'd make it up to her
If there was time I'd make my move
I'm hitting close to home
I still have so much left to prove

I know her life has changed
Maybe she'll wait for me
The door was locked before but
Maybe I've found the key

Jumpstart The Heart

Written By: Stormy Strong

I see you just across the way
My legs beg not to move
At least it seems they wanna say
My whole world's come unglued
You drag me down, you drag me down
Stuck in reverse still hangin' on
You're killin' me you know it
I'm givin' up my ghost for you

Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart
I'm never gonna let you go
Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart
Jumpstart the heart

Now I have broken down and blown this
I'm trying' hard not to show
I cursed the needle lyin' flat
And wondered what to do with that
Asked blue eyes
Grilled brown eyes
I only set my sights on green eyes
This feelin's, misleadin'
I won't give up, until you’re mine

Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart
I'm never gonna let you go
Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart
Jumpstart the heart

You're mine,
And in this slice of time
We have drawn the walls that divide
When we could meet and meet in the middle
If you can't feel the beat
Then you jumpstart the heart
If you can't feel the beat
Then you jumpstart the heart

Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart
Im never gonna let you go
Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart
I need you and that’s all I know
Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart
Jumpstart the heart, jumpstart the heart

Jumpstart your heart

Sail Away

Written By: Stormy Strong

So many times we tried to find
A way to bring you back and I
Think the words don't end up right
The words don't end up right
Your voice came from the box today
The sun had carried you away
Well maybe you were wrong but maybe
You were right this time

I scan the ocean, I look the other way
No longer see you I stare across the bay
And knowing then, that in the end
We missed you so

Though he has stalled she's moving on
Escaping to the great beyond
Wake of blue will fade at last
But it won't erase the past
Heard the news the other day
The sun had carried her away
Well maybe you were wrong but maybe
You were right this time

Sail away
He won't forget you,
We can't forget you,
The bow it cuts through

Far on the ocean, where water crystal blue
Is washing on the deck, no one there but you
Where sunning fish, and waters deep
Sing you to sleep
