Lyrics

Just Friends

Written By: Jason Reeves

hey, what did you think i'd say?
you're everything that i ever wanted
and this kind of thing doesn't just come around
every time you go looking for it

i don't wanna be just friends, no
i'll never fake it or pretend
and i don't want another girl
cause you're the only one i love..

i don't wanna be just friends
that's something i can't understand
i don't wanna be just friends
not now, not ever
those two words are bullets in my chest
"just friends"

hey what did you think i'd do?
it felt so good waking up beside you
and the way you kiss, so delicate
doesn't come around and i'm always gonna miss it.

i don't wanna be just friends, no
i'll never fake it or pretend
and i don't want another girl
cause you're the only one i love..

CHORUS

and it's never gonna be the same again
my love....

Photographs & Memories

Written By: Jason Reeves

i keep your picture by my bed for when im feeling sad
and i dont know why i would be.
the way your smile looks so real
i feel like i could start to understand your grace.
and i dont understand why you're
not here with me.
and i dont even wanna know where else
you'd be.

cause i have photographs and memories of the times
when you weren't on my mind and i was alone.
and i have poetry and drawings of my life
when you weren't on my side and i didn't know
just what is love...

writing moments on the wall with different colors
keeps my mind away from missing you.
and i can't wait to fall asleep to slip into my dreams
where we can dance upon a star..
and i will be as patient as a boy in love could ever be.
cause i don't feel like i was real until you were
a part of me.

CHORUS

i need you back, i need you back
i need you here.
i need your smile, i need your eyes
i need you dear.
cause every line on your face makes a beautiful maze
for my eyes to trace...

You in a Song

Written By: Jason Reeves

tryin to figure out which way i want this to go..
do i want it to be happy or sad or fast or slow??
tryin to work it out what it is i feel
do i wanna rock you shock you sooth you or move you??

i just wanna write you in a song
put your smile on paper so you can sing along
i just wanna bottle the sun
keep your light a secret i can find when you are gone..

you are like a beautiful tree
with roots in the ground so deep that
they could never be seen
im a leaf that's ready to fall
and the wind's gonna blow me someday
away from it all..

CHORUS

most people when they can't get away
it makes them more than a little crazy
im the one that can never stay
but i'll always have you with me in this song..

Helium Hearts

Written By: Jason Reeves

over the lights of sunset and vine
we're floating away from the fortune and fame
and your lips are mine, they're raspberry wine
your body's a map i will follow into the sky
cause what you got is all that i want
and still that's not enough, it's not enough

cause we're on fire walking love's highest burning wire
helium hearts we're falling skyward
we're never coming down
we're so high the city below gets small and quiet
every breath just makes us lighter
we're never coming down…

the further we go we're losing our clothes
one shoe at a time thrown over the side
like our fears and doubts we cast them out
till nothing is left and we're standing together now
cause what we got is all that we want
and that's always enough, enough for us
