Lyrics

We'll Remember You

Written By: Ben Abraham

You took your chances and got on the plane
The world is ready now to know your name
The sweetest sadness is to know you're gone
You live your dreams and I'll sing your song

And when you're on the highway
With your fingers in the air
Or moving down the roadway to anywhere
Remember where you came from
And always stand for what is true
And when the day is over
We'll remember you

I see you growing, I can see you change
In every city and on every stage
You call to tell me every sight and sound
I say I'll be here when you come back down

And when you're on the highway
With your fingers in the air
Or moving down a roadway to anywhere
Remember where you came from
And always stand for what is true
And when the day is over
We'll remember you

(Instrumental)

And when you're on the highway
With your fingers in the air
Or moving down a roadway to anywhere
Live and learn and fight for what is true
And when the day is over
We'll remember you

Something To Say

Written By: Ben Abraham

Another day in the city
One million people hiding away
It always seems such a pity
Nobody's talking when there's so much to say
What happened to conversation?
Everyone races and stares at the ground
Study the cracks in the pavement and you'll miss the faces that make up this town

Should we stop for a minute, look up just a minute
Is this cost of making progress?
We could wait just a minute, it'll take just a minute
There is something I would like to suggest

If everybody smiled every once in a while maybe we'd find
We'd all stop feeling this way
It's time we moved our hands just a little
And danced just a little
'Cos we've all got something to say

Who took our young ones and told them
We'd like them better seen and not heard?
Who said that silence is golden?
Who said that quiet is better than words?

I say we stop for a minute, listen up for a minute
If this is how it's going to play,
If being civilized means identity compromise
Give me the desert any day

Never Been In Love

Written By: Ben Abraham

Excuse the cliche - see I'm at a loss for words
I've not been the same since you trampled on my world
I've finally grown up, I'm way beyond shy
I think that I've thrown up every last butterfly
But I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know

That I've never been in love
So i've got no philosophies
I never figured I'd love someone else more than I love me
Now I can't even sit still
I'm feeling things against my will
It's all a little bit insane
is that how loving feels?

So thanks for invading my every thought
My sanity's fading, my mind has been caught
my heart is on fire, my future is through
My soul is inspired and it's all because of you
So I've got to let you know
I've got to let you know

That I've never been in love
So i've got no philosophies
I never figured I'd love someone else more than I love me
Now I can't even sit still
I'm feeling things against my will
It's all a little bit insane
is that how loving feels?
