Follow Me Home

Written By: Joe Garant

Follow Me Home

The light on in your window
A candle burns slow
I saw you so simple
Beauty in afterglow
It’s normal, but it’s marvelous
From a distance I watch you and wish that your love

Would follow me home
Creep up behind me
So I couldn’t see you decide to let go
Let go of your fear
Could these eyes convince you
Your future is standing right here

I wake up and I miss you
If only I knew your name
You’re so insecure, but you’re perfect
Different but always the same
Now I’m crazy but I’m confident
That if you only noticed me maybe your love

Would follow me home
Creep up behind me
So I couldn’t see you decide to let go
Let go of your fear
Could my words convince you
Your future is standing right here

I’m hopeless ‘cause I need you
So I’m gonna ask anyway
It’s all down here in this letter
Every breath of mine you took away
You stood bewildered in clarity
One smile in that moment I knew that your love

Would follow me home
Creep up behind me
So I couldn’t see you decide to let go
Let go of your fear
Could my words convince you
Your future is standing right here

If I give up now

Written By: Joe Garant

My Vow (if I give up, now)

Today I look back, from 25
At the so-called best years of my life
And at least a million smiles that I’ll never forget
But you can bury me right now, if that’s as good as it gets

All that I’ve bled, every tear that I’ve shed for my vow
Would all be for nothing if I give up, now.

Tomorrow is where I’ll leave my mark
In the form of a song you’ll know by heart
And if I’m drawn to relinquish, then I will not permit
For the first time I fail will be the second that I quit

All that I’ve bled, every tear that I’ve shed for my vow
Would all be for nothing, if I give up now

I have felt the fire burn out
Ashes in despair
Singed by such degrees of self doubt
Far too cold to bear

This is no time to leave anything unsaid
So I’ve conjured up the courage to clear my head
I’ve been loved I’ve been broken
I’ve been cheated and used
But the good in my life, has been worth every bruise

All that I’ve bled, every tear that I’ve shed for my vow
Would all be for nothing if I give up now

Secret

Written By: Joe Garant

Secret

I wish it wasn’t so, I wish it wasn’t me
Trapped within your shame under lock and key
I wish I could let go, would you let me be
It’s sad, but from my cage I feel like I get everything I need

How did I become your dirty little secret?
The only man you’ve loved
But no one can know this silly little secret

Every time we go out it’s the same old scene
We spot somebody you know near a bank machine
We duck into the shadows and hope they didn’t see
The best part of you and the worthless side of me

How did I become your dirty little secret?
The only man you’ve loved
But no one can know this silly little secret
Haven’t we been through enough?
I’m not sure of your time frame; do you plan to keep it?
Suffocating slow, I’m your secret

How did I become your dirty little secret?
The only man you’ve loved
But no one can know this silly little secret
Haven’t we been through enough?
I’m not sure of your time frame; do you plan to keep it?
Suffocating slow, I’m your secret

Leap Of Faith

Written By: Joe Garant

Ponder the smiles
Question the miles I’ve walked for you
Live and let learn, memories burn in my brain
You’re looking for fame, your Hollywood name on a neon sign
You’re looking for luck to grant every wish that you’ve got
You’re looking for love, to prove that you are what you’re not

I’m looking for a leap of faith
The passion no one can fake
And a promise you can only make, in a leap of faith

I’m out on my own. I’m moving back home to start over new
A chance to relive, try to forgive my regrets
And I’ve been caught in the glove of a recycled love
I could never let go
We were bound in a crush that no one accept
They forgot that a true love would never forget

I’m looking for a leap of faith
The passion no one can fake
And a promise you can only make in a leap of faith
I’m looking for a love that strong
The simple happiness to prove them wrong
The kind of patience that can last the long
In a leap of faith

I tried to subdue every urge in my heart
But it kept right on beating
I lost all my faith when they tore us apart
But I kept right on feeling
We wouldn’t have to be alone

I’m looking for a leap of faith
The passion no one can fake
And a promise you can only make in a leap of faith
I’m looking for a love that strong
The simple happiness to prove them wrong
The kind of patience that can last the long
In a leap of faith
