Lyrics

Call Me Here

Written By: Greg Downs

"You Call Me Here"

Sometimes you hurt, my old hands.
I never could take, your understanding.
I fall so hard.

chorus
You call me here, got to say got to say I'm sorry.

Never again will I see this page.
Discovering light, and darkening age.
You follow my scars.

chorus

Find Yourself

Written By: Greg Downs

"Find Yourself"

I could say a thousand things I've thought before.
Anyway, I'll leave a key on my front porch for you.

chorus
I hope you find yourself boy
apart from me
I hope you find your dreams boy
next to me
You tumble and choke on your words never land right.
You break cycles building negative proceedings.

Any day, you'll find the things your looking for.
I have faith , you'll push and pound on fates front door and U

Patiently Waiting

Written By: Greg Downs

"Patiently Waiting"

Consulting the stars, patiently waiting.
Time has bent ist wings much too far.
Saving grace, from taking another.
I have spent my will saving yours.

Pre chorus

Designing these scars, patiently waiting.
I fear the pains too much to come this far.
Sustaining a life, to take from another.
My life is slowing down for who you are.

chorus
The time has come for you to stay.
Thoughts of paralouse, seemless days.
The time has come for you to say.
Thoughts of happiness, endless days.
