Lyrics

Hope is Calling

Written By: Fishing for Comets

Hope is Calling
For everything, there comes a sun
With all the troubles there comes the wind
I keep singing I keep screaming
And I know there’s nothing left. Here (there) left for me

I keep dreaming I stay alive
I hold onto you still there’s trouble..
Left inside, those words they’ll keep running
Running from you

Hope is calling, you won’t be late
And you’re blooming we are flowers pressed between
Pages of that old, blue notebook of poems,
Sitting on the porch outside
Transformed into light with candy on the inside

Hope is calling you won’t be late
Hope is talking gentle hands upon your face
Pages of that old, blue notebook of poems,
Sitting on the porch outside
Transformed into light with candy on the inside

Lydia

Lydia
Lydia drinks all the rest of the wine bursting with stories she sings
Just like a bird she flies high in the air to light to get stuck the trees.
Lydia sings in her melody sweet bursting with stories she sing
Lydia brings all the rest of wine.

Lydia shines as she sparkles she sings and fairy tales dance around me
Just like a storm at her chorus we see the fury of her songs unleashed
Lydia sings in her melody there’s echo of spring underneath
Just like a doll swept away by her tide, swept away by the beauty she brings

And it’s hard to breathe when you’re bathed in the light (stories that she brings to life)
When Lydia sings all the stories she drank,
The stories that she brings to life

Spinning around like pinwheel she gleams the colors they whirl around me
Just like a cloud I will swell with the stars explode with the bright fantasy
Lydia sings and her melody’s sweet, bursting with stories she sings,
Lydia brings all the rest of the wine

And it’s hard to breathe when you’re bathed in the light(stories that she brings to life)
When Lydia sings all the stories she drank,
The stories that she brings to life

Lies

Written By: Fishing for Comets

Lies
Is a warm body just enough to keep me away from the cold? Why do my eyes keep sparking at the sight of new flames? Will these hands be tied down for longer than 7months and 3 days, I suddenly wish I never let you in.
I want to be a sunrise when my headlights reflect on the road. But I know I’ll always be torn into pieces missing the ones on the floor. Like a puzzle never meant to be whole.
Strange complications will keep us apart. Don’t you know those stars have minds of their own? So why don’t you run through my hair, all those lies that you cry. They make you seem to be so much better than you appear.
I’ll give you me, for time we can share. Moments may never come again. Then I’ll grow to be more than you needed something that gets in the way of ** you and what you think you could be. Don’t you close your eyes and wish I was there, tell me words can be so out of play. I won’t go unless you say that you need me. Spilling onto the floor, a broken heart never meant to be worn. Got lost on the drive home. It’s useless I suppose to hold onto something that’s not there.
