Ragged Words

Written By: Henry O'Neill/ Kevin Fisher


RAGGED WORDS
Music and Lyrics by Kevin Fisher and Henry O'Neill

could it be simple as
sayin' what i mean to you
using just ragged words
hopin' these thoughts come through
i've never felt so raw
never been in so deep
wanna make promises
promises i will keep

they say love
can move a mountain
i say mine
can move a thousand
you gotta know
this love that i'm bleedin'
is bigger than ragged words

if you could take a pill
that made you hear words unsaid
you wouldn't believe the sounds
poundin' inside my head
it's like an atom bomb
ready to explode
making a perfect world
outta the world we know

they say love
can move a mountain
i say mine
can move a thousand
you gotta know
this love that i'm bleedin'
is bigger than ragged words

ragged words
ragged words
inside they hurt
these ragged words

they say love
can move a mountain
i say mine
can move a thousand
you gotta know
this love that i'm bleedin'
is bigger than ragged words

The Hey Song

The Hey Song
Music and Lyrics by Henry O’Neill (50%) and Kevin Fisher (50%)

In a big world a little love,
goes a long, goes a long way,
brings a little light through the night and day.
Small things can make a change,
be a strong, be a strong wave
gonna crash on over you and say

Hey, any song you want, sing it
Hey, everything you’ve got, bring it
Free to be you, free to be me
Baby, let’s make some history
Hey hey hey, everybody say
Hey hey hey

Baby, you and me,
we're gonna be, gonna be fine,
though all of our tomorrows still remain undefined.
Wanna live, wanna love, wanna,
dance on the stars up above.
While the world keeps spinnin', I'm in it with you. Oh yeah.

Hey, any song you want, sing it
Hey, everything you’ve got, bring it
Free to be you, free to be me
Baby, let’s make some history
Hey hey hey, everybody say
Hey hey hey

Ooo, it's a good life, but Ooo, isn't it a short ride, so…

Hey, any song you want, sing it
Hey, everything you’ve got, bring it
Free to be you, free to be me
Baby, let’s make some history
Hey hey hey, everybody say
Hey hey hey

Aftermath

Written By: Henry O'Neill/ Kevin Fsisher

Aftermath Kevin Fisher/Henry O’Neill I feel like a train without a track I’m pushing the pedal down but I’m going back(wards) I look in my reflection I can’t see any direction with you gone Was leaving always on your mind? Were you being cruel to be kind You didn't say a single word, silence was the only sound I heard Baby, if gone is what you want Then go and take your time Keep on fighting for the truth Here in the aftermath I'll be fighting too, Cuz you know I'm gonna do I what I gotta do Girl, even if I gotta beg my way back to you. I'd give the world to hear you breathe Sweet invitations just to me I can still feel your skin when I close my eyes imagining you’re here CHORUS I’m strong enough to let you go Then let you turn and come back home CHORUS
