Lyrics

Day Around

Written By: Brian Neubauer


1
Suddenly a song on the radio
Was making sense to me in a new way
Before now I only a heard a melody
The words meant nothing they couldn’t reach me
They couldn’t move me
2
Normally I’d get by on excuses
Stepping neatly ‘round what I must say
But kissing the truth can be a treasure
Behold the wealth in the midst of that really rather
Unexpected moment in my...

Ch-
How you came and turned my day around
Now every word that’s sung just breaks it all down
Now I’m in touch with this emotion
But losing track of the time of day

Bridge-
I’m frightened I’ve become the one who’s clawing for your attention
And do I need to mention, I always thought I was above this sort of thing
Now can you see me hanging here waiting for your approval
Maybe this guitar will bring some answer or some solution

Ch-
But how you came and turned the day around
Now every word that’s sung just breaks it all down
And now I’m in touch with this emotion but losing track of the time of day

3
Someday this song may play the radio
If you’re listening let me only say
You may think that love may never find you
But quicker than you think and in a rush of what you feel...

The Gift

Written By: Brian Neubauer

1
Won’t you sit with me for a while
Why must you leave so soon
I’ve got nothing better to do
than look into your eyes

2
So we only met last night
You came with me out went the light
Together, we should go on in this forever

Chorus:
Light, light up my life
Lead, lead me from strife
Open Up The Gift
That’s been given us
The opportunity to explore
Let's explore

3
Seems everyone I know
Bumpin’ along the same old road
Expired, deliver me from this
Hell fire

<Chorus

4
Come back around this way
won’t you
Take me in your arms and let me hold you
Stop thinkin’ about it
Your heart will tell you the answer
I’m coming after you
I’m coming after you

<Chorus

Trading The Lies

Written By: Brian Neubauer

I can't make it without you
Still we can't get it together
I count you as my blessing
and I can count on you through these times as we're changing

Changing every aspect of our lives
Trading The Lies for truth

You don't agree to me
yet we ring in harmony
I couldn't count the ones before you
but can count on you through these times as we're changing

Changing every aspect of our lives
Trading The Lies for truth

Leave me for someone else you'll
find you way back to me
'cause you've seen every one else there is to see

Get Away

Written By: BRIAN NEUBAUER

I WISH I COULD GET OUT AWAY FROM THESE GRAY DAY'S
WISH I WERE IN THE MOOD TO TRY NEW FOOD
WISH I HAD SOMETHING BETTER TO TALK ABOUT
AND I WERE MORE CONSTRUCTIVE IN WHAT I DO

Chours>
YES I’M ONE SECOND AWAY
FROM TUNING THE WORLD OUT
CALLING IT A DAY TO
GET AWAY

I WISH I HAD A BETTER PICTURE OF MYSELF
WISH I WEREN'T SO WET WHEN IT COMES TO YOU
WISH I DIDN’T AVOID ALL I’M NOT GOOD AT
AND TAKE 3 STEPS BACK WHEN I GET BLUE

<Ch

Break:
BUT I’LL FIGURE IT OUT
FIGURE IT OUT THE HARD WAY

WISH I FIGURED THINGS OUT
MORE THINGS ON MY OWN
WISH I DIDN’T NEED HELP EVERY STEP I TAKE
WISH I WEREN'T SO LATE EVERY WHRE I GO
AND I WAS MORE IN THE KNOW AND UP TO DATE

<Ch

WISH I WERE A BETTER FRIEND THAN WHAT I’VE SHOWN
WISH I SAW MORE COLOR IN THE WORLD I LIVE
WISH I WEREN’T SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME
AND I GAVE MORE
AND I TOOK LESS

Nothing In Return

Written By: Brian Neubauer

There’s a hole in my life
A period of nothingness
A space from October first to the twentieth
I’m floating, I’m a waste away
Steeping in incompetence
Loathing my infatuation over you
And the time I spend
With the T.V. set

What has happened to me?
I entertain myself in a ritual
Searching for an open door
That leads me well away from myself
I’m a bird at heart bathing in seven colours
And I hate to come back and to face this room
As I spend my life doing’ things that give me

Nothing In Return
And you, you’re not here
Do I want it that way? I guess
‘Cause I’m driving this thing called loneliness

By 10:00 I’m into bed
The sheets are cold and the silence
Rings within my ear's and I touch myself
Oh the things I say on my way to sleep
I deny the love I was meant to keep
Could it be? no no

I get
Nothing In Return
And you, you’re not here
Do I want it that way? I guess
‘Cause I’m driving this thing called loneliness
And I spend my life doing things that give me

Nothing In Return
Oh how I hate to come back
And to face this room as I spend My life doing things that give me

Nothing In Return, no no
Nothing In Return, that gives me
Nothing In Return

Blue Never More

Written By: Brian Neubauer


I’ve had the day that I’ve been hoping for
The time of times to remember forever more
So close to dreaming I’m beginning to believe
There’s something here worth living for

Blue never more
I’ve been where fantasy has only taken me before
Waves to the shore
What do I call it
I just call it good

I never needed much of anything
I know now what it means to have everything
So close to you our spirits breathing
Feel now I’m winning being here with you

Don't Run Away

Written By: Brian Neubauer


Now you’re thinking your life is lonely
You as yourself for what should I care?
You tell yourself its all too much work now
Listen up to the one who wants you here

Life is as good as you are to yourself
Love comes from with in
Careful not to throw it away
After you’ve troubled so
growing up’s so hard

Chorus:
Don’t run away
I think I see love today
Give what you’ve got to give
Don’t Run Away

Life has gotten a little too fast
You’re only waiting for the end of the day when
You can sleep and hide from your loneliness
Hope by morning all your troubles have gone away

Believe you me you’ve got to believe
Where there’s love, there’s a fighting chance
Don’t turn away with my help you can find a way
Maybe love at last

<Chorus

Everyday you ask yourself
Is this the price you must pay?
Don’t let me hear you think that way
Let me help you see your higher self
Be there when this thing called life
Won’t let you have your say

<Chorus
