Lyrics

only you

Written By: jon jackson


If a whole in space and time would show her face, I'd just inside alive
My years may be few, but what it's done to me it could do to you
Everywhere has pain and hate
Anyday in age, justice is just a game
Your intent to play, delayed everday
You're in replay everyday

She raises her voice, uneasily makes room to lay
Looking through eyes with differnet personalities
Why oh why must it be so hard to say the things I need to say
Maybe they won't understand me and my ways

But if you want it, you have to go get it
But everyone's in denial
There's no reflections in my view, there's only you
And if you want it, you have to go get it
But everyone's in denial
There's no reflections in my view, there's only you

all it takes

Written By: jon jackson


staying up late, hoping the phone will ring
missin' the nights we'd stay in, just you and me
you know i couldn't care less what everyone else is saying
you know i'd give you my word, i'd hope you'd do the same thing
always checking the time, convincing myself you must be sleeping
it's just a matter of time, before i lose my mind and my jealousy creeps in
i fall asleep, you get ready to leave, still all these thoughts in my head
you have some drinks, forget about me, the rest is his story.
cause all it takes is one night, 'til we finally see
this ain't workin out, we're not workin out
all it takes is one night, faithfulness is hard to find
but you've made it very clear, i won't find it here
i can't keep up my patience, we both lost our motivation
i know it's not what you want, but we both need to move on
it's too late to erase mistakes, i need to go my own way
so go ahead and have your fun tonight, cause you know i'll try.
i've had enough, of you drinking way too much
if i'm not there, that just will not work
cause everything you say i doubt
what haven't you'd lied about
believe me when i say

you've been so numb
so let me show you how to feel
when truth lies down, lies stand up and stand out
love makes life work, tryna make love work only hurts
i'm lookin for something real, something burning bright
start my steps with a heel end up at a blinding light
start my steps with a heel just to get me through the night
you live so numb
so let me show you how to feel

theres an empty space

Written By: jon jackson

she's got the story twisted, the ending came up way too fast
love should last longer than that
i've got my fingers crosesd, hoping that someone else is lost like me
i'm beginning to see that everything i believe in is breaking down
we both know things just haven't been the same
i know i, i'm not the one to blame
he's got the story twisted, the rising actions fell apart
where do i go from here
so much for a happy ending, it seems they never happen to me
i'm still confused but i'm doing so much better than you
we both know things just haven't been the same
i know i, i'm not the one to blame
when it's all over and everything seems unclear
don't come back for more, i promise i won't be here
and as i watch you go, i can barely believe this is happening
i'll make sure you know that i'm moving on
you always had to have your way, but not today, i'm not blame
it's all unclear, don't you come back this way, i told you i would'nt stay
we both know, we both know, you and i
but you keep telling me it's fine when i know it's not fine
but i'm not the one, i'm not the one.

Written By: jon jackson

There's a prison of roots, growing around your hope
And I refuse to believe you would let it surround your goals
Hypothetiically, all the years you've had were just dead time
Wasted on a good mind
In reality all it costs is your pride
And you'll live a life instead of just have survived

Oh, oh, there's potential

Idolizing anything and everything you come across throughout your days
Just to make a name, just to make a name
But what of situations can you make when they're in need of a face
And you only have a name
You can talk through situations, see what the proccess is for
Or you can walk to sitautions, help someone in need of more, amour

Oh, oh, there's potential
That won't be held, we won't be held
Oh, oh, there's potential

You're alive, we're alive, still not sure, the reason why
But while you're here, I'd like to be near you
You're alive, we're alive, but you can't speak so you have no rights
But while you're here, I'd like to be near you

Only the worst advice, could come from one
Whos only seen, never done, always learned from someone else
Experience yourself
After all the words, and after all the games
Can't afford derange
But now it's time for your mind to change

Where I got when there's no one home an my mind is set at ease
Is where I'd be if it were up to me, we'd just come and go as we please

Where I got when there's no one home an my mind is set at ease
Is where I'd be if it were up to me, there'd just be green leaves and peace

Written By: jon jackson

Every night she stays up, and she wonders why,
Everyone in this world is so made up and she says, "I'm running out of time!"

When it comes down to your will or your heart, and you can't decide which.
She says, "Remember decisions come and they go, but I'm always here I'll be permanent".
Her destination as pure as it seems, is lacking a few things.
She never does anything for herself, and it seems that there's no room for me.

Everyone wants to be at the top, they'll do what it takes.
All she wants is to save the world.

In this life I have come to see, All that we have are our memories.
I still remember the day we met, since then I've had no regrets.
I am armed so strong in honesty, when it comes to you, you can trust in me.
I love the way you never let me down, it's always better when you're around.

When everything that you've wanted in life is put right infront of you.
There's always something more that catches your eye, something you need to take a good look into.
In the end if it's all still the same, I will pack up my things, I will stand in the rain.
But if that something that first caught your eye makes you, change your mind or even makes you think twice.

I will wait, for you to see what you do to me.
Everyone will know, 'cause I'll write you a song for the world to sing.

a life without you

Written By: jon jackson


where did you go
when I needed you
bring back to me
all those memories
a life without you, is no life for me

everyday, could be our day
if we both divide this fire inside
and when you learn not to be afraid
i'll be right here, waiting for you
you can believe every word i say

reason that I fall

Written By: Jon Jackson / sb

While you were surprised, I knew it all along.
Soon we'll be, taking off to the sunrise
As if it were ours to own

Yours is my favorite voice of all
But I never knew the words you said
Would be the reason that I fall, so hard
You're the reason that I fall
So keep talking

Say yes or say no
But an answer you must show
Never wanna let you go

And after all of these years
You're the one I kept near
Still I've got so much to show

I'm losing my mind
I never sleep so really it's all the time
I think about you baby
Wanna make you my lady

Yours is my favorite voice of all
But I never knew the words you said
Would be the reason that I fall, so hard
You're the reason that I fall
So keep talking

Cause I'm not finished,
Falling closer to your arms, and I'm hoping that you'll find me
The whole time I was falling there, you were falling right beside me, with your
Hand in mind, you looked in my eyes, then you kissed my cheek, and said goodbye

When everything, falls into place, that's when I fall apart
It seems I'm losing, and I only have myself to blame.

I keep my phone beside the bed, just so I can hear you call
I never knew the words you said, would be the reason that I fall

You wouldn't believe the things I hear
But when your voice is in my ear
No words to be said from me at all
Baby you're the reason
