BandRockSinger/Songwriter

Lyrics

Hear Me Now (Acoustic)

Written By: Alexander Seier

Hear Me Now
(a. seier)

i’ve come to see you today
it’s been a few years since i walked the long hallway
to the room where you lie
and i can’t ask forgiveness
it’s much too late for that now
i’ve seen the look upon your face

can you hear me now
as i hear you breathe
when the angels come and try to set you free

it’s two’o’clock today, and in the next room they wait
wipe the tears away, you are barely breathing
it’s all that i can take
i walk outside and i can say
i’ve seen the look upon your face

CHORUS

and i wonder why it’s taken so long to understand
just how you make me feel
this is real

CHORUS

can you hear me now
as i see you leave
and the angels come down and set you free

Drawn To You

Written By: Alexander Seier

Drawn To You
(a. seier)

i sit alone, the telephone is all i have
a thought of you, the voice i hear on the other end
you’re calling from so far away, i can’t take anymore
as i breakdown, i can hear you say
we’re not together anyway

the one things that’s been weighing on my mind
what have we been doing all this time
i can’t let it go, and i’m sorry that i still have hope inside

‘cause i’m drawn to you, i’m drawn to you
i’ve been drawn to you
since the first time i layed my eyes on you girl

a month goes by, and all the while i try to move
on from this, but your soft kiss i need from you
instead of me, you spend your time with somebody new
what will happen when you come back home
and we're face to face again

the one things that’s been weighing on my mind
what have we been doing all this time
i can’t let it go, and i’m sorry that i still have hope inside

CHORUS

oh why can’t i control what in my head or in my heart 
it’s no surprise i sit alone tonight

CHORUS

Settledown

Written By: Alexander Seier

Settledown
(a. seier)

it started out one day when i saw her look my way
i might have been the sun’s glare or a misinterpreted stare
but couldn’t wait, i had to know
was she looking at me, looking at me
this must be fate, i love her so
was she looking at me, looking at me now

settledown she said
settledown i’m not ready right now she said
settledown

i knew it had to be now so i walked up to her and sat down
i started off with my plan of three kids, house, and a van
but couldn’t wait, i had to know
was she looking at me, looking at me
this must be fate, i love her so
was she looking at me, looking at me now

CHORUS

i looked at her with surprise like my ears were telling me lies
(she) got up and started to run, i guess that she was not the one
but couldn’t wait, i had to know
was she looking at me, looking at me
this must be fate, i love her so
was she looking at me, looking at me now

CHORUS

Need To Love

Written By: Alexander Seier

Need To Love
(a. seier)

If I said I'm sorry for what I cannot say to you
Now please don't worry
Don't throw out everything that we've been through
Don't go now

I know I'm not so bad
Just give me one more chance
I know that...

I need to love, I need to come around
Will you be waiting here for me

If I said I'm sorry for what I cannot do for you
This story's not fine and I know I can make it right for you tonight
Don't go now

I know I'm not so bad
Just give me one more chance
I know that...

CHORUS

Close

Written By: Alexander Seier

Close
(a. seier)

when i’m alone at night and i feel as i
might pick up the phone and try to call you but i don’t
because i don’t feel right and it’s not my time for you
but now that doesn’t mean there won’t be you and me
to lay out on the ground and watch the burning sun go down
now time is all we need and i am sure you’ll see
something will be found in me

but for now you won’t be mine
and i will wait ‘till the end of time
until i learn to know that your feelings won’t grow
and i know deep inside that i can’t see

i’m not that close
i’m not that close to you now
i’m not that close
i’m not that close to you now

i have a photograph and makes you laugh
it makes us feel so good just like i know how good it should
but then i realize you are not here beside me now
then i breakdown and it comes spilling out
i’m not feeling so good just like i know how good i should
and then i realize you are not here beside me now

but for now you won’t be mine
and i will wait ‘till the end of time
until i learn to know that your feelings won’t grow
and i know deep inside that i can’t see

CHORUS
