Lyrics

Look at me

Written By: Andrew Yeh

Is this a dream?
Am I asleep I'm tryin
Tryin to be free

Am I alone?
Is this my home I'm dyin
Dyin to believe

Look at me I'm cryin now
Look at me I'm dying now
I'm searching for myself

I wake myself
And ask for help
I'm tryin
Tryin to be free

I fight alone
But not on my own
I'm dyin
Dying to believe

Look at me I'm cryin now
Look at me I'm dying now
I'm searching for
myself

Look at me I'm cryin now
Look at me I'm dying now
I'm searching for
myself

Rain Falls

Written By: Andrew Yeh

The rain falls on my face, I close my eyes
I wish you’d let me in, but you turn away
Your face is plain I know, I’m not the one

But the rain keeps falling
Don’t you hear me calling you
I’m standing out here all alone
Don’t you hear my voice out
In the rain I’m hoarse now
I can’t speak
I miss you

I’m knocking on your door, echoes respond
I wish that you were home, it doesn’t matter now
You’ve chosen out I know, but you can’t go

But the rain keeps falling
Don’t you hear me calling you
I’m standing out here all alone
Don’t you hear my voice out
In the rain I’m hoarse now
I can’t speak
I miss you

I know I shouldn’t be here, standing still
Tomorrow’s another day and the sun will rise up again.

But the rain keeps falling
Don’t you hear me calling you
I’m standing out here all alone
Don’t you hear my voice out
In the rain I’m hoarse now
I can’t speak
I miss you

I miss you
As the rain, as the rain, as the rain
Paints shadows on my wall
The silence calls
As the rain falls down

Secret Life

Written By: Andrew Yeh

It’s her secret life
Where she goes to laugh
Her face relaxed
The rest of the time
She’s oh so tired
It’s a slow slow fire

Beneath your smile lies a stormy sea
who’s waves wash over me
A smile paints over your cracks and leaks
But the truth still speaks to me

It’s her hidden wings
Oh the joy flight brings
Soaring free today
The rest of the time
She’s a bird in winter
Summer’s over now

Beneath your smile lies a stormy sea
who’s waves wash over me
A smile paints over your cracks and leaks
But the truth still speaks to me

OOOOOOOO

It’s her secret life
Where she goes to laugh
Her face relaxed
The rest of the time
She’s a bird in winter
Summer’s over now

I can do anything

Written By: Andrew Yeh

I used to stand by your crib to keep you company, when I was three
You grew up telling me sit, I’m bored, just talk to me. Don’t abandon me.
You were ‘fraid of the dark, but that’s ok because I was too, I was brave for you
Now your pain fills my heart, I let you struggle your own way through, you think I’m cruel.

I could pick you up
But you’re on your own
It’s hard I know
I can do anything, but I do nothing
I do nothing

You use the drugs as a substitute for feeling love, or human touch.
Your arms are marked by the cuts when tears just aren’t enough, when life’s too much.
I could take all your knives, quit work to be around all day, I’d keep you safe.
Instead I pray every night, you’ll find the strength to stand up and face, your own mistakes.

I could pick you up
But you’re on your own
It’s hard I know
I can do anything, I can do anything
I can do anything but I do nothing
I do nothing

(It’s time to stand up)
(You can do anything)
(I know you can)

Letting them go

Written By: Andrew Yeh/Julie Smith

I don’t know about love
About how to let go
How, how not to control
How not to grab hold
There are signs I now see
Slowly building belief

So I’m placing my heart
In the warmth of your gaze
In the safety of love
In the light of these days

I’m letting them go, my ideas
I’m letting them go, my fears
This is how the world should be
What we should believe
How the world should be
What we should believe, believe

You’ve, been waiting for me.
Been waiting so patiently.
You, you see through my flaws
You’re there when I fall
To the depths of my soul
Your love’s making me whole

So I’m placing my heart
In the warmth of your gaze
In the safety of love
In the light of these days

I’m letting them go, my ideas
I’m letting them go, my fears
Tell me how the world should be
What we should believe
How the world should be
What we should believe, believe

Say these words with me
Don’t let me go we’re here together now
In space and time
The journey’s complete in a moment

I’m letting them go, my ideas
I’m letting them go, my fears
Tell me how the world should be
What we should believe
How the world should be
What we should believe, believe

Plum Blossom Rain

Written By: Andrew Yeh

In the quiet of a narrow street
Beneath the open arms of a plum blossom tree
They whisper in voices soft
Trembling bodies held aloft

By a rainfall of petals, swirling through the air
A thousand soft kisses, not one the same
In the quiet empty streets
No one but me, sees the beauty of plum blossom rain.

I see her fingers holding him so close
Devoid of any signs of the vows that we spoke
Helpless to resist I watch
Every kiss and every touch

Like a rainfall of petals, swirling through the air
A thousand soft kisses, not one the same
In the quiet empty streets
No one but me, sees the beauty of plum blossom rain.

It’s a rainfall of petals, swirling through the air
A thousand soft kisses, not one the same
In the quiet empty streets
No one but me, sees the beauty of plum blossom rain.

When you wake

Written By: Andrew Yeh

These ten years have gone by
Like a kiss good night
Like the fading rays of sunset
Or the lingering taste of wine

I knew from when I felt your heartbeat
I would love you all my days
My love is like the midnight ocean, crashing silently in waves
Forever’s every moment with you
Sparkling brilliantly in space
Like pairs of footprints after snowfall, my love will be there when you wake

As the dawn breaks through the window
With night still close
I trace your lines and shadows
There is nothing I love more

I knew from when I felt your heartbeat
I would love you all my days
My love is like the midnight ocean, crashing silently in waves
Forever’s every moment with you
Sparkling brilliantly in space
Like pairs of footprints after snowfall, my love will be there when you wake

When you wake
When you wake
When you wake
When you wake
When you wake
When you wake
When you wake
When you wake

Am I just a Fool

Written By: Andrew Yeh

Am I just a fool
Words and Music by Andrew Yeh

Sunday I see you again
A friend of my old friend’s old friend
Oh! Hey, how are you, that is all that’s said
I’m leaving town in 30 days
But how I wish that I could stay
Although I know you don’t feel quite the same

cause I keep thinking
I keep thinking bout

you and I, like sand and time
Trickling in the same direction
You and me, like the birds and the leaves
Going where the wind directs us
Am I just a fool (x3)
For you?

Don’t know how to talk to you
I stutter like a boy in school
When you’re around I don’t know what to do
But inside I feel so alive
Seeing you makes me so high
It feels like I’ve waited all my life

Cause I’ve been dreaming
I’ve been dreaming bout

you and I, like sand and time
Trickling in the same direction
You and me, like the birds and the leaves
Going where the wind directs us
Am I just a fool (x7)
For you?

Goodnight

Written By: Andrew Yeh

V1
These walls ache so silently
In the dance of endless night
While I’m playing make-believe
That you and I are still entwined

Oh but all I have are dreams
Only meant for me
Hard to try and get to sleep

cause sometimes
I miss kissing you goodnight

V2
Your eyes bright as crystal moons
Lit the velvet skies above
I said goodnight to you
Once upon a time in love

Oh but I had other dreams
Only meant for me
So I went and set you free

But sometimes
I miss kissing you goodnight

Goodnight

The Lightning Song (Falling Behind)

Written By: Andrew Yeh

The Lightning Song (Falling behind)
Andrew Yeh

She was a bolt of lightning flashing in my sky
Beautiful so beautiful
I tried so hard to catch her keep her in my eye
Desperately so desperately

But she could not be tamed or stolen
I was the one maimed and broken

Falling behind
Falling behind

You are the breeze of summer wrapped around my veins
Tenderly so tenderly
But I still hear the thunder, my heart cannot be changed
Easily so easily

oh time cannot be chained or frozen
but I’m still stuck in yesterday and fadin

Falling behind
Falling behind

Thought that love would change with time
Like the colors of the sky
But love is a lightning bolt
Love is a lightning bolt

Falling behind
Falling behind
Falling behind
Falling behind

Holding My Breath

Written By: Andrew Yeh

Holding my breath
Words and music by Andrew Yeh

What’s in that slow motion dress
How do you make everything move slower and slower?
Mmm girl I must confess
If you say yes, then I’d do the rest
Over come over

Tell me your secret
I think I’m falling in love
Tell me you feel this
Tell me that I am the one cause
I’m holding my breath
Holding my breath
Holding my breath

Help, I’m getting dizzy
All these stars make ignoring my heart harder and harder
Mm, yeah I’m floating high
Please be mine, cause I can’t hide it
Longer, no longer

Tell me your secret
I think I’m falling in love
Tell me you feel this
Tell me that I am the one cause
I’m holding my breath
Holding my breath
Holding my breath

Come on don’t hold back now
Break it down break it down
Come on don’t hold back now
Break it down break it down
I can’t hold my breath forever

Tell me your secret
I think I’m falling in love
Tell me you feel this
Tell me that I am the one cause
Tell me your secret
I think I’m falling in love
Tell me you feel this
Tell me that I am the one cause
I’m holding my breath
Holding my breath
Holding my breath
