Lyrics

On Your Side

Written By: Carl Bishop,Mike Goodenow

On Your Side © Fans of the Future 2014

No more early mornings
No more bad decisions
Your my early warning
It's only me it's only you

Happens fast takes forever
Only certain when it's over
Break the rules before they're written
We invented us long ago

I am on your side
I am on your side
I am on your side
I am on your side

You don't have to impress me
(I am on your side)
I can see something's missing
(I am on your side)
The music is moving
(I am on your side)
It wants you to follow

I am on your side
I am on your side
I am on your side
I am on your side

I am on your side
I am on your side
I am on your side
I am on your side

It Feels Like This

Written By: Carl Bishop,Mike Goodenow

It Feels like this © Fans of the Future 2014

It feels like this
I know we're all here tonight ' cause we hate being alone.
The thrills come slower
cost a little more each time
You'll do anything to get that feeling again and again and again

It feels like this
it feels like this
It feels like this

It feels like this
To be in line behind a lottery winner
Thinking you're so fucking special
Hotter than the flame of fame
Its too many miles, you're all out of fuel
and scared to stick out your thumb

It feels like this...

It feels like this
When they're bored with you
They tell you lies but you think its all true
We all gotta suffer each other
When you finally decide to take what you want
Thats when the fun begins

It Feels like this...

Take a Chance

Written By: Carl Bishop,Mike Goodenow

Take a Chance © Fans of the Future 2014

This conversations wrong
your words don't follow logic
this drink is tasting strong
Your mouth is tasting better

Here comes that flash of light
that hits you unexpected
I know you, you know me
Like we invented each other

You better watch yourself
Cant be too careful
I hear the words you say
But I get more from your touch (repeat)

The room is spinning now
And it just feels fantastic
Bright mirrors all around
You can see how I see you
Get closer now and take a chance
get closer now and take a chance

You better watch yourself
Cant be too careful
I hear the words you say
But I get more from your touch

Take a chance, take a chance uh-oh
Take a chance, take a chance
Take a chance, take a chance uh-oh
Take a chance, take a chance

(Oh-Oh-Oh….)

I Would

Written By: Carl Bishop, Mike Goodenow

I Would © Fans of the Future 2014

I would blacken out the daylight
I would fly up to the moon
I would promise all my Sundays
for you

I would deal with bad behavior
I would never quit my dead end job
Even ask you how your day went
for you

Soul to soul
So hot then cold
Stuck in between

I would sing a silly love song
I would rent a house in Mexico
They would charge a pretty penny

Soul to soul
So hot then cold
Stuck in between

Soul to soul
So hot then cold
Stuck in between...above you
