Lyrics

Everything Breaks

Written By: Bill and Rob Sunkel

Everything breaks, eventually
Hard as you stand, you'll fall to the sea
As the wind and the waves come incessantly
Everything breaks, eventually

The bigger they are, the harder they fall
Once there were shadows, now there's nothing here at all
I watched them raise our hopes a hundred stories tall
And never believed, I couldn't conceive
I'd see the day that they would come to be
Laid to waste
But take it on faith
Everything breaks

Everything breaks, eventually
The fool is the kind who's too blind to see
Building shrines to his own immortality
Everything breaks, eventually

Last night an asteroid passed close overhead
One hundred meters wide, or so the morning papers said
While I lay dreaming in my sweet unknowing bed
And for all your strength, and for all your speed
How can you talk about a life that you lead?
We're just caught in the wake
And, baby, make no mistake
Everything breaks

Doesn't really matter in what truth you believe
Doesn't really matter where the dim lights will lead
Doesn't really matter what the tarot cards show
I've been around enough to know
There's only one way it can go

Everything breaks, eventually
You weather the storm perpetually
And then a kiss brings you to your knees
Everything breaks, eventually

Undeniable

Written By: Bill and Rob Sunkel

don't believe in love at first sight
But it's so hard to let you go
I don't believe in love at first sight
But it's undeniable

Tried to be sure I wasn't right
Tried to pretend I didn't know
Tried to resist, I tried to fight
But it's undeniable

She is undeniable
And she weeps like the rain
As she eases my pain
She is undeniable
And she creeps to my bed
And she sleeps in my head

All at once her light
Comes shining on me
Caught within its warm white glow
Stripped of what I fear
I finally see
Tame the angry dark with faith
I believe what I feel
What I want, what is real

She lifts me up and I am high
Higher than I have ever known
I take her hand and she is mine
We are undeniable

She is undeniable
And she cools me with fire
In the eye of desire
She is undeniable
And I stand without shame
As I call out her name

I don't believe in love at first sight
But it's so hard to let you go . . .

(She Wants to Go to) Nashville

Written By: Bill and Rob Sunkel

A life of quiet desperation
Sometimes supplies the inspiration
There's nothing left to leave behind
And she's got music on her mind

They took away her favorite station
So she dreams of changing occupations
And heading south for fields of grass
Far from these towers of steel and glass

She says she wants to go to Nashville
To write her songs and learn guitar
To change her name and be a country music star
I know she hasn't really gotten very far
She says she wants to go to Nashville
And, if I know the lady, someday she will

Born and raised in New York City
Imagines Tennessee is pretty
She thinks it's time to turn the page
Sing for her supper on a honky-tonk stage

And she would be there in a minute
And then her whole heart would be in it
If she were ruled by her desires
And not strung out on telephone wires

She says she wants to go to Nashville . . .

Pitchin' her brand of princess blues
She got a cowboy hat and white lace shoes
It's gonna take a while before she finds
A place big enough for her heart and mind

She says she wants to go to Nashville . . .
