Lyrics

Broken

Written By: Doug wahlberg

BROKEN
by Doug Wahlberg

I know you hurt inside
And you don’t know why
And the walls are closing in
It doesn’t have to be this way
I’m gonna love you anyway
I want to try and help and fix you

(Chorus)
But you’re so broken
So broken, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Life’s puzzle, I admit
It hard to make the pieces fit
And there’s always one that’s lost
But I know you’ll find your way
It might take a thousand days
I want to try and help and fix you

Chorus

I know you hurt in side
And you don’t know why
And the walls area closing in
It doesn’t have to be this way
I’m gonna love you anyway
Still everything remains so broken

Can't Wait

Written By: Doug Wahlberg

Let’s start living
Like the day we were born
Without a reason
Or a care in the world

Let’s not give in
Until the curtain comes down
We’ll keep on singing
Until there are no more songs
Gotta keep on believing
Until your dreams comes true
But the clock is ticking
That’s why I say this to you

(Chorus)
I can’t wait until tomorrow
I gotta live my life today
There is no time left to borrow
No time left to castaway

Don’t let time pass you by
Live your life before you die
Don’t let time pass you by
Until you die

Chorus

Waiting on the Sun

Written By: Doug Wahlberg

Verse
There’s been a black cloud hanging over me
And the sun refuses to shine, and the rain is pouring in my head, as I lay floating in my bed, I’m waiting on the sun to.
Chorus:
Shine on me, yeah shine on me oooh, waiting on the sun.
Verse
All my dreams are shot in black and white
All there color have faded to gray
But the moon will help to light my way
As I stumble through this dark, dark day
I’m waiting on the sun to.
Chorus
Bridge
I have my demons just like everyone
They hold me back
The won’t let me run, so I sit here
Waiting on the sun
And I wonder when will it ever come
Chorus..repeat

The Lake

Written By: Doug wahlberg


Intro
Oh no it’s getting weird around here
Verse
There must be something in the water
That makes these people so strange
To many high voltage wires disconnecting
Their brains
Chorus
I live down near the river some people call it a lake
Something’s in the water that makes these people hate
Down near the river down near the lake
something’s fishy make no mistake
Intro
Verse
There goes Pete the petifile his pick up truck is so
Red and I hear a banjo in the distance a shaver shaving a head
Chorus
People of the river, people of the lake
You can never trust them it’s your soul
That they will take, down near the river
Down near the lake something’s fishy
Make no mistake
Intro
Bridge
Meet me at the picnic we’ll
Watch them drag the lake
There’s something in the water that makes these
People hate, somebody’s kid is missing
And theres bees all over the cake
And here comes Mary Jane
She’s had all that she can take
Solo
Repeat Chorus 1
