Lyrics

Where Giants Fall

Written By: Larry Berrin

Never been the one to know
the right words to say
Never been the one to try
and stand in someone’s way
But there’s a place I go, I’ll show you
Just trust in me, I trust in you…..hold on

Chorus
‘Cause the desert is deserted
The mountains too hit
There’s a trail through the forest
I think you’ll like

Now you stand before me
it’s some kind of angelic light
Just before the sun settled in
darkness took over the night
Whatever you thought was real
fake people fill your life
Just trust in me, I trust in you…..hold on

Chorus

I remember when
these days didn’t seem so long
I remember when I didn’t care at all
I remember when I felt good in my skin
I remember when
I didn’t care if I did or didn’t… fit in

Long after we leave the place
where Gods are born and giants fall
You find comfort in churches,
but I feel safe behind nature’s walls
Will your faith be tested,
will the path you choose be right
Just trust in me, I trust in you…..hold on

Chorus

Half-life Prince

Written By: Larry Berrin

2am rolls around
I cannot sleep this is nothing new
Lying still wide aware
Nothing changes I think of you

The cold hands that used to shock me
Bunched up cloths don’t let me forget
The first night was hard enough
By the sixth night could this be worse than death

Chorus
What’s it like to be on your own
It’s the same old song you’ve heard before… I know
Will the mountains finally take me in
Will you through your arms around me once again
Story of the Half-life Prince
Just don’t say it’s gonna end like this…

4am rolls around
I cannot sleep this is nothing new
Lying still wide aware
Nothing changes I think of you

My mind is a dangerous place
Should be goin’ there alone
Spendin’ lots of time there lately
Wonderin’ when you gonna come back home

Chorus

6am rolls around
I cannot sleep this is nothing new
Lying still wide aware
Nothing changes I think of you

Had another one of those dreams
Remindin’ me of the times when we fought
Darkness starts to creep in
I guess Oregon winters are harder than I thought

Chorus

Story of the Half-life Prince
Just don’t say it, please don’t say it
(4x)

Story of the Half-life Prince
Just don’t say it’s gonna end like this…

How Long

Written By: Larry Berrin

All the clothes picked out for me
I just wish I hadn’t seen
All your friends laughin’ at me
Just let me be….

Crawl into my head
There’s room in here for two
It started when I was young
And now you know….

Chorus
It’s wrong, it’s wrong
How long
Will you feel it when I’m gone
It’s wrong, how long
Can you hear it in this song
It’s wrong, how long
Will you feel it when I’m gone

You ask me to step outside
But I’ve learned where the wolves hide
In corners, out of sight
They avoid the street lights
Casting shadows off to the side
Dark alleys where they hide
Been like this when I was young
And now you know….

Chorus

So it’s fear that enters this room
Will the silence take me soon
Please leave just close the door
What the hell is this life for
We’ll find out if it’s true
What it is these streets can do
I remember when I was young
And now you know….

Chorus

(In background of final chorus)
I can’t change the way I am
You just give me one more chance
I can’t stop the fear I feel
I think this can be for real
I can’t change the way I am
You just give me one more chance
