I Don't Know

Written By: Griff Thomas

i don’t know w/m Griff Thomas

Verse 1
i used to think that i was fast, but i don’t know
i used to think that peace would last but i don’t know
i used to think that good guys won but i don’t know
i used to think i liked the sun but i don’t know

Chorus
everything i thought i knew has all begun to change
instead of black and white i’m swimming through the grays
guess i better take my time and have a look around
everything is different yea, it’s turning upside down, i don’t know

Verse 2
i used to think people were kind, but i don’t know
i used to think that we all had clear minds, but i don’t know
i used to think the death was sad but i don’t know
i used to think that mad was bad, but now i don’t know

Chorus
everything i thought i knew has all begun to change
instead of black and white i’m swimming through the grays
guess i better take my time and have a look around
everything is different yea, it’s turning upside down, i don’t know

Verse 3
i used to know i was the one, but i don’t know
i used to know i’d stop the show, but now i don’t know
i used to know just where i stood, but i don’t know
i used to know but it’s no good, cause now i don’t know

Chorus (2X)
everything i thought i knew has all begun to change
instead of black and white i’m swimming through the grays
guess i better take my time and have a look around
everything is different yea, it’s turning upside down, i don’t know

Outro
i used to know just where i stood, but i now don’t know
i used to know but it’s no good, cause i don’t know

Nothing You Can Do Will Hold Me Down

Nothing You Can Do Will Hold Me Down
w/m Griff Thomas

Verse 1
You always bring the rain, clouding up the sky again
I saw the sun today and I realized that I must change
And so I went outside collecting lemons on the ground
And though it sounds cliche, i made a glass of lemonade

Chorus
I’ll take the dreams that you throw away and keep them for another day
Nothing you can do will hold me down

Verse 2
I’ve tried so hard to be, the one who cared for you and me
But all you’ve got is hate and the way that you retaliate
And so I took all your letters and I painted them to look like feathers
And though it sounds cliche, i made a pair of wings today

Chorus (2x)
I’ll take the dreams that you throw away and keep them for another day
Nothing you can do will hold me down

Verse 3
I wonder if you think of me and on our history
If you can understand the heart that beats inside the man
I took the shattered dreams and made them into art you see
And though is sounds cliche, I wrote this song for you today......

Chorus (2x)
I’ll take the dreams that you throw away and keep them for another day
Nothing you can do will hold me down

Dream Big

Written By: Griff Thomas

Dream Big  w/m Griff Thomas 5/2010

Dream big, breathe deep, eyes wide, take leap
Trust me, hold hand, breathe deep, dream big

Everything that ever was started off as small
You don't get to everything less you start with none at all
You can't fill the bucket up unless you start with a drop
Even though it's difficult, keep filling to the top

Dream big, breathe deep, eyes wide, take leap
Trust me, hold hand, breathe deep, dream big

Wonderful a work of art that started out as a mark
Warming by a roaring fire that danced up from a spark
Something good around the corner if patiently we wait
Even in the barren desert, love can conquer hate

Dream big, breathe deep, eyes wide, take leap
Trust me, hold hand, breathe deep, dream big

Bridge

Dream big, breathe deep, eyes wide, take leap
Trust me, hold hand, breathe deep, dream big
