Lyrics

This is Going Kill Me

Written By: Lyrics by Johnny Arco Music by Johnny Arco, Jeff Miles, Bob Edinger and Reuben Cainer

Work so hard
I hurt myself
You're all here
But there's no one else

The day is done
I'm standing strong
Don't know why
Why it takes so long

But I know
You're worth it all
I'll walk the line
I'll catch you if you fall

If this is going to kill me
I don't want to live

I looked so hard
I lost my sight
I close my eyes
but can't sleep at night

The day is done
I'm standing strong
Don't know why
Why it takes so long
But I know
You're worth it all
I'll walk the line
I'll catch you if you fall

If this is going to kill me
I don't want to live

You are something I've wanted
So much I'll give all I have
You are much more than something
I know I want you bad

I know
You're worth it all
I'll walk the line
I'll catch you if you fall

If this is going to kill me
I don't want to live

- This song is dedicated to Jeff Miles, Reuben Cainer, Bob Edinger and Nick Farago

Take My Hand

Written By: Lyrics by Johnny Arco Music by Johnny Arco, Jeff Miles, Bob Edinger and Reuben Cainer

Try to see it clear
Take a better look
The things you need to learn
You can't find in a book

I know that you could find
What you're looking for
and once you've had a taste
I know you'll want some more

You don't know what you've been missing from
There's a better place I'll take you there

Take my hand
I'll lead you to the floor
Close your eyes
We'll dance out of the world

I wish that you were free
and that you could lose control
and somehow you could realize
that you don't need them anymore

I know that you could find
What you're looking for
and once you've had a taste
I know you'll want some more

You don't know what you've been missing from
There's a better place
I'll take you there

Take my hand I'll lead you to the floor
Close your eyes
We'll dance out of the world

- This song is dedicated to Anthony Staton and Krysta Chavez

Serious Shit is Happening

Written By: Lyrics by Johnny Arco Music by Johnny Arco, Jeff Miles, Bob Edinger and Reuben Cainer

I Look for you all
Look for you all the time
The sun has lost all of it's light
But I
Don't need to see
Don't need to see you free
While the trumpets start to sound

That the sky is falling down
All I think
Of is you
It's all I do

While the moon is turning red
All that runs
Through my head
Is you
Only you

I
Look for the day
I'll find the words to say
Before the trumpets start to sound

That the sky is falling down
All I think
Of is you
It's all I do

While the moon is turning red
All that runs
Through my head
Is you

Only you

- This song is dedicated to Puanani Brown

Gone

Written By: Lyrics by Johnny Arco Music by Johnny Arco, Jeff Miles, Danny Weller, Reuben Cainer and Bob Edinger

All our shit is gone
All our shit is over
It left as quickly as it came

Had the biggest dreams
Wanted finer things
But life just always seems to stay the same

Now all our shit is gone
and all our shit is over
So why we all just standing around

It's best I just move on
It's best you just move over
It's hard when you believe that things will change

But I'm crazy for you
I'm crazy for you
It's worth all that you put me through
I'm crazy for you.

If distance makes the heart
Beat and grow much stronger
Then why don't we smile when we're near

I haven't got the heart
to do this any longer
and now the time has finally come I fear

But I'm crazy for you
I'm crazy for you
It's worth all that you put me through
I'm crazy for you.

I can't say
What I feel
Because you run, run away
When you hear, hear me say

I'm crazy for you
I'm crazy for you
It's worth all that you put me through
I'm crazy for you.

My heart is in your hands
My mind is steady racing
This thought of you won't never let me be

Now all our shit is gone
And isn't worth the chasing
So why don't you just please take all of me?

Because I'm crazy for you
I'm crazy for you
It's worth all that you put me through
I'm crazy.

- This song is dedicated to Seanna Sharpe
