Lyrics

Julie

Written By: Corby Thomas

Verse
Searchin' for words as I watch you breathe, with this pen I tell you I have to leave
There ain't no easy way to say
Goodbye to you
Searchin' for times and a reason why, I guess I've heard one too many cries
But I wouldn't trade our time for nothing

Pre chorus
Don't follow me out, don't look at the ground where my footsteps go
I won't make a sound, I won't wake you up
You won't understand why I had to go

Chorus
Julie , I'm letting you know, this will be our last night
Julie, I'm letting you go, even though you're everything
Julie, I'm letting you know, it's my last night here

Verse
Here at the table I'm lost for words, I thought I knew everything
But where I belong is far from you

Pre chorus repeat
Chorus

Remember You

Written By: Corby Thomas

Verse
Seems like I just met you yesterday, now you're movin down to Baltimore
Was there anything I could think of to make you stay
Any combination of words to let you know I'm serious
Pre-Chorus
Are you happy without me, are yolu glad you're gone
Are you thinking about me, and what went wrong

Chorus
Was it all just a waste of time, I guess it'll be nice to just remember
I wish we could have just one more night
I guessw it'll be nice to just remember, nice to just remember you

Verse
When you think about the nights we spent together
Deos your present situation cloud your mind
I know you better now, but I wish you would decide
Can you give some indication is it you intention to decline cause I'm serious

Pre-chorus
Is it what you wanted, runnin away
Is it what you needed, I wanted you to stay

Chorus
Prechorus refrain
Chorus

Dead End Dream

Written By: Corby Thomas

I saw your poicture on the wall right where you left it
Didn't have the heart to bring it down
I found your t-shirt in the drawer right where you kept it
Tell me what do you sleep in now
The games we played, for days and days still confuse my mind
The price we plaid for our delay, was it a waste of time

A dead end dream is what you are, is what is, what you left deep inside of me
Didn't you belive that everything was easier than it seemeed

I had a drink at the cafe where I first met you
I walked the beach down at the shore where I last kissed you
Wish you were around
Never thought I would feel this way
Your troubled soul infects my mind
How can you escape my heart when, everything reminds me of you

A dead end dream is what you are, is what is, what you left deep inside of me
Didn't you belive that everything was easier than it seemeed

These memories will fade away, inner peace will likely come my way
I'm wounded now but I'll be ok

A dead end dream is what you are, is what is, what you left deep inside of me
Didn't you belive that everything was easier than it seemeed

Better Days

Written By: Corby Thomas

I know all about your history
I know the pain, you feel inside
Drowning on your broken dream and mysteries
Why don't ever look back on better days
How easy you forget them
Better days
You don't want to let them back into your mind
Instead, you think about this

Walking on the angels that you're talking to
Do you know the doors you're walking through
Ever think of leaving well enough alone

Light up for me your heaven
Light up for me the angels in your sky
Light up for me your heaven
Light up for me the truth you're hiding behind

I don't always know what you're thinkin
But I know, the truth it might be nice
I can't always save you when you're sinking
So why don't you ever look back on better days
How easy you forget them
Better days
You don't want to let them back into your mind
Instead, you think about this

Walking on the angels that you're talking to
Do you know the doors you're walking through
Ever think of leaving well enough alone
Wakin up meditating on yesyerday
I don't think there's an easier way to say
Ever think of leaving well enough alone

Light up for me your heaven
Light up for me the angels in your sky
Light up for me your heaven
Light up for me the truth you're hiding behind

The World To You

Written By: Corby Thomas

Why were you so nice to me
When what I needed, was someone to let me fall
Why'd you go stick up for me, without a reason
Did you think that I would call
Everything that you told me, came true, sometimes I'm so damn mad
Everything that I heard, I wanted to believe

If I gave the world to you, would you give it back to me now
If I gave the world to you, would you give it back to me now

What did you expect from me, was it that I treated you the way you wish I had
Now you moved away from me, I'm defeated, I bet that makes you glad

Everything that you told me, came true, sometimes I'm so damn mad
Everything that I heard, I wanted to believe

If I gave the world to you, would you give it back to me now
If I gave the world to you, would you give it back to me now

Everything that you told me, came true, sometimes I'm so damn mad
Everything that I heard, I wanted to believe

If I gave the world to you, would you give it back to me now
If I gave the world to you, would you give it back to me now

Try

Written By: Corby Thomas

Looks like you been up since yesterday
Come on come on try something new
Don’t you know there’s a cold glass of water by your bed
Get up tomorrow morning new

It’s 3 am on the corner store
You’re havin words with me and the cashier too
Everybody looking thinking, why you yellin what’s the fuss
Get up tomorrow morning new

You cannot break me but you’ll try, and I’ll be putting up resistance putting the water on your fire
You cannot break me but you’ll try, try try and try

Somebody knockin your back door
Do you have the answer what you choose
Nobody lookin saying, slow down, you move too fast
You try help everyone but you

Chorus

You might not know what you said yesterday
You might not know til you come to
You might not know there’s something wrong what you said
You try help everyone but you, you try help everyone but you, you try help everyone but yooooou

Chorus

The Real You

Written By: Corby Thomas

She's got deceptive eyes
They seem so honest but they're full of lies
When she walks you stare
You'd never know there was a devil in there

When she talks to you don't be fooled
you might believe her
Everything she does it's so cruel
Just try and leave her

And she brings you up again so high
She brings you right back down
She brings you up again so high
She ain't never gonna bring me down

Can't bring me down
You had me twisted around
Your secrets out and now I know the real you
Can't bring me down

She's got a look that kills
A smile that melts you soul and your will
You think about all the ways to escape
That's a decision not yours to make

When she talks to you don't be fooled
you might believe her
Everything she does it's so cruel
Just try and leave her

And she brings you up again so high
She brings you right back down
She brings you up again so high
She ain't never gonna bring me down

Can't bring me down
You had me twisted around
Your secrets out and now I know the real you
Can't bring me down

Can't bring me down
You had me twisted around
Your secrets out and now I know the real you
Can't bring me down

Now I know the real you
Now I know the real you
Now I know the real you

She Don't Know

Written By: Corby Thomas

I didn't even see crying, at all that day
She feel asleep in the cold night
I didn't even know the reason, I wanted her to go away
Did she know who cared for her
I tried to fix her, eleven days ago
I thought she had the answer, I thought that she would know

Could've skipped this like a rock on water now
Would've missed this like a bus or a train
I'm never on time no

She don't even know, she's in my head
She don't even know, she's in my bed
She don't even know, walkin around with him
She don't even know, I know where she's been
Right here hangin around with me

Last night she was dreaming about a thing or two
And could I make some sense of it
I thought I heard her screaming
She might be amused, she took my rent and doubled it

She asked me for forgiveness, I couldn't give
Been sucked back in so many times, I've got my life to live

Could've skipped this like a rock on water now
Would've missed this like a bus or a train
I'm never on time no

She don't even know, she's in my head
She don't even know, she's in my bed
She don't even know, walkin around with him
She don't even know, I know where she's been
Right here hangin around with me

Could've skipped this like a rock on water now
Would've missed this like a bus or a train
I'm never on time no

She don't even know, she's in my head
She don't even know, she's in my bed
She don't even know, walkin around with him
She don't even know, I know where she's been
I know where she's been
She don't even know

Pick me up

Written By: Corby Thomas

I put it in a letter all the things we should’ve said
I put it in a black and white photograph of you in my head
I’ll feel better if your stubbornness would bend
But right now I’ll just go on the notion that to you I must be dead

So just pick me up, cause I’m in pieces on the ground
Just pick me up, I feel a lot better when you’re around
Pick me up, try to forget where I have been
Put me together again, put me together again

If I told you somethings wrong, could ya, could ya makes things right
I only hope that it won’t be long before you
Pick me up and put me together again

I saw it in a magazine the place we planned to go
I saw it again last night on a late night tv show
I’ll feel better if this consequence would end, but right now I’ll just go on the notion that to you I must me dead

So just pick me up, cause I’m in pieces on the ground
Just pick me up, I feel a lot better when you’re around
Pick me up, try to forget where I have been
Put me together again, put me together again

If I told you somethings wrong, could ya, could ya makes things right
I only hope that it won’t be long before you
Pick me up and put me together again

I put in a letter, I put it in a black and white photograph of you in my head

The Drinker

Written By: Corby Thomas

Where is the drinker
Where is the clouded son, without a job
Where is the grown man in the arcade

Where is the deadbeat
Where is the knocked up girl who married a fool
Where is the dropout, who never finished school

I know you looked back on was there anything, that you did wrong
And as you search for higher ground, just look around
We’re all doin fine, gonna get up and get mine

Where is the junkie
Where is the criminal countin his tattoos
Where is the needle, that’s ready to use

I know you looked back on was there anything, that you did wrong
And as you search for higher ground, just look around
We’re all doin fine, gonna get up and get mine

Gonna get up and get mine, gonna get up and get mine, gonna get up and get

I know you looked back on was there anything, that you did wrong
And as you search for higher ground, just look around
We’re all doin fine, gonna get up and get mine

Let the Roses Roll

Written By: Corby Thomas

Woke up on Friday thought a little wine might be good for my soul
Turn around on Sunday thought it’s still Friday but I just don’t know
Spent a little too much time down on 12th street
Didn’t get a lotta sleep but keep that low
Tell the lady I spend my time with I let the roses roll

In the middle of my room you’ll find roses
I’m more than likely dressed like Moses
Spent too much time playin black jack on the line, let em roll

Let em roll, you got to let the roses roll
Let em roll, you got to let the roses roll

It’s getting light now, sun comin up turn the blinds down low
So many people in my place I just don’t
Somebody singin karaoke, Somebody bangin on my drum
Tell the lady I spend my time with I let the roses run

In the middle of my room you’ll find roses
I’m more than likely dressed like Moses
Spent too much time playin black jack on the line, let em roll

Let em roll, you got to let the roses roll
Let em roll, you got to let the roses roll (double)

Got a good idea let’s go to a/c
A little more champagne to get me right
Turn cards at the table speakin Japanese
The monkey on my back won the fight

Some people say that I ramble
When I drink I like to gamble
Spent too much time playin black jack on the line, let em roll

Let em roll, you got to let the roses roll
Let em roll, you got to let the roses roll

Fever

Written By: Corby Thomas

Up again late last night in your bedroom
Wiping down the beads of sweat on your face
I feel the rain that comes down on you
I see the pain that runs within you
If I could I would gladly take your place

And when you fever breaks will you let them go
And when your bible shakes will you let me know

Here I won't let you go away
Here I won't let down, you're fallin and fallin
Here I won't let you go away
Here I won't let down, you're fallin and fallin

Watchin TV in the room next door
I tried to call all the friends you had before
You can run and you can hide from the deamons you keep deep inside
If I could I would gladly take your place

And when you fever breaks will you let them go
And when your bible shakes will you let me know

Here I won't let you go away
Here I won't let down, you're fallin and fallin
Here I won't let you go away
Here I won't let down, you're fallin and fallin

Here I won't let you go away
Here I won't let down, you're fallin and fallin
Here I won't let you go away
Here I won't let down, you're fallin and fallin

Here I won't let you go away
Here I won't let down, you're fallin and fallin

You're fallin and fallin
You're fallin and fallin
You're fallin and fallin
