Everythings Not Alright

Written By: Jake Holman

Lets be honest it hurts sometimes,
and i cry sometimes from this life of mine
I'm gonna say this, "i don't always get it right,"
but i'm tired of lies, and sticking needles in my eyes

But I'll be okay, if I don't hear you say
that I am wrong for feeling this way

And watch birds circle my head,
at least they found me dead
O they found me dead
And like birds sing to the sky,
You'll hear me sing tonight,
you'll hear me sing tonight
Everythings not alright

Maybe I don't say what you think I should, but you thought I would,
well, you misunderstood
and maybe I don't smile all the time
or make it seem like all is fine,
is that such a crime?

And watch birds circle my head,
at least they found me dead,
O they found me dead.
And like birds sing to the sky,
You'll hear me sing tonight,
You'll hear me sing tonight
Everythings not alright

And watch birds circle my head,
at least they found me dead,
and they accepted me dead.
And just like birds sing to the sky,
You'll hear me sing tonight,
You'll hear me sing tonight,
Everythings not alright,
things aren't always right

Its A Beautiful Life

Written By: Jake Holman

Maybe, If I could do it all again
I'd know what it feels like to have a friend
Maybe, 37 years ago
would make sense if it wasn't spent alone

Maybe, I wouldn't have to cry to sleep
and there would be no secrets left for me to keep,
If only, I could do it all over
I'd blow into a new four leaf clover

Its A Beautiful Life, Sing it, Sing
A Beautiful Life, It could be
A Beautiful Life, if I had another try

If only, I could rebuild my Kingdom
I'd do away with all of my addictions
I'd say goodbye to time that I wasted
and welcome in the love I never tasted

I Caught Them Talking to Themselves

Written By: Jake Holman

I caught her talking to herself
with arms raised up in wonder
"How could this life be such hell"?
was the story she told through her rear view mirror.

I caught him talking to himself
he was a thinker, or maybe he was empty
"I should've been somebody else"
was his battle cry between every sip of coffee.

Your gonna make it now
Your gonna make it now
Come worlds upon your shoulder
Your gonna make it now

I tell you theres been worse
I tell you your not the first
to ever feel this way
I say get off your knees
Come on I'm begging you please
come see the light of day again

I cuaght you talking to yourself
nobody said that life was easy

The Great Philosophers

Written By: Jake Holman

Come awake with sunlight as it interrupts the night, another day
You crack a smile I take a picture
and my mind it becomes a picture frame
and I don't know if there's a way to love you more

You burn me up on fire I think we've got ourselves another situation
Filled with love and desire, silent spells and all of our frustrations
but I don't know if there's a way to love you more

So sing Casanova, sing stars above
Everybody's pitchy in the chorus of love

I'm no fool, I know you, and today is just one of those days
I don't why, we're pushed aside, "go on I just need my space"
but I don't know if there's a way to love you more

He loves me not, he loves me so
we're great philosophers that build on bridges burned
Cupid's great with his arrow, but he's still got so much to learn
but I don't know if there's a way to love you more

I'm Tired

Written By: Jake Holman

I'm tired of being more powerful in my head, maybe I'll just go to sleep here tonight to feel alive again
I'm tired of having these ideas and thinking maybe, that one day they'll act upon their own and everyone will go crazy

but I'm singing to myself, and I'm the only one that can help

Well I'll cash in all my chips, and I'll send myself somewhere I don't belong and I'm not gonna quit, until everyone I know is singing this song

I'm tired of living with the camel on my back, scared to move, scraed to turn and show the world everything I lack
I'm tired of what I see, defeating whats not shown
lets part the red seas of our lives and step into the unknown

I'm tired of having the will to move and never moving, just sitting still and thinking of all the things I might be losing
man I'm tired, I'm tired of complaining
