Lyrics

Need No Lover

Written By: Art Benson


I never thought that I would see,
Something that was part of me,
Sail a ship that's bound to sink,
And make it in one piece,
And you could tell that I would leave,
A land like that is not for me,
The world can go and steal my things,
And I would feel the same.
I don't know why I feel fine,
I've been all alone for some time,
I just need my brother,
And a loyal group of others,
For now I need no lover.
I laid out my priorities,
Loving you was not pain-free,
I saw myself as you made me,
That's far from what I need,
And I'm a man who needs few things,
No diamond chairs or golden rings,
Just open air and birds that sing,
My happiness is cheap.
I don't know why I feel fine,
I've been all alone for some time,
I just need my brother,
And a loyal group of others,
For now I need no lover.

Mind In Motion

Written By: Art Benson

Its in your mind its in your motion, 
You need to ditch your sad devotion to me, 
I don’t connect with that emotion so I’ll just go and let you be.
Wts in your mind, its in your motion, 
How do you live with those emotions? 
You’re walking on nails because of devotions, 
You made to your mind and to your motion. 
It’s in your mind. 
It’s in your mind.
When will you let this be over? 
We traded trust and then you destroyed mine, 
Out of desire to be older you threw me out and drew new lines.
I have had it with your mindset, 
You act like nothing will be thwarted from you, 
Thinking back to when we first met you’d always disregard what is true.
Its in your mind, its in your motion, 
How do you live with those emotions? 
You’re walking on nails because of devotions, 
You made to your mind and to your motion. 
It’s in your mind.
Its in your mind, its in your motion, 
How do you live with those emotions? 
You’re walking on nails because of devotions, 
You made to your mind and to your motion. 
It’s in your mind.
Its in your mind its in your motion…

It Burns

Written By: Art Benson

It just hit me,
That I can’t find my own way home,
You vanished with a leather case and now I’m forced to roam,
You must remember,
That part of me is worth your time,
Enough to shadow your regrets when I was in my prime.
Does it burn to be the one that’s walking away?
I turn in sleep to tell myself its okay,
I know that I have been the one who’s been wrong,
And now that you’re gone it burns.
I got the message,
You think I’m just another guy,
A guy that knows it’s hard to please a set of perfect eyes,
So I’ll keep moving,
I’ll limp across a field of flames,
If I knew at the very end you would feel the same.
Does it burn to be the one that’s walking away?
I turn in sleep to tell myself its okay,
I know that I have been the one who’s been wrong,
And now that you’re gone it burns.
Does it burn to be the one that’s walking away?
I turn in sleep to tell myself its okay,
I know that I have been the one who’s been wrong,
And now that you’re gone it burns.
I hope it burns to be the one that’s walking away,
I’ll turn my head to tell myself it’s okay,
You know that I have been the one who’s been wrong,
And now that I’m gone it burns.
