Lyrics

The Night

Written By: Joshua Hoyer

Everyone that I know has had hard luck.
Everyone that I meet could be stronger.
I think we need some relief for the pressure, just some light to see us through.

Everyone has demons in the mirror.
Some cry out for everything to be clearer.
I'd give almost anything to be near her, just some love to see me though.

There comes a time to just lay it down. We all need to breathe some time. Let the spirit fill you, and let the evening become the night.

I've been haunted through every season.
I have searched and found every reason.
I want to let the flood in and make peace with the truth, to see it through.

Some many peoples' lives are painful.
Is it yourself or your God should be shameful?
Ask all day long, but when the rain falls only joy can see you through.

There comes a time to just lay it down. We all need to breathe some time. Let the spirit fill you, and let the evening become the night.

Water

Written By: Joshua Hoyer

When it's warm it flows natural, to this path we must adhere.
Oh yes, it can be frozen, so afraid, laid still be our fear.
When it raeches a boil, the staem comes back like rain from the lid of our years.

Who's to know if it's right when it takes so many forms. Our love is like water and I'm soaked to the bone. In mind I travel to the desert, the sanctity of a dry place, but the sands flood in emotion the moment I see your face.

Cause our love is like water.
Our love is like water.
and I ask myself...
can I live without water?

Crystal pool just inside the shadows.

Why is it that the light seems to grow dimmer the further we go down. And in peace of our embrace, there's not a sound, not a sound. You tell yourself soon you'll need to come up for air, but I'm always afraid that when I come back you won't be there.

Cause our love is like water.
and I ask myself..
Can I live without water?
