Lyrics

Blue

Written By: Michael Greenberg

They've seen red
They've seen sun
These walls have seen my life before it begun
My life was good
It suit my mood
But good is nothing since I've paint them blue

Now let me say
First it was strange
It was not for color it was for the change
I needed a cool calm freshly brewed
And these walls have been so since I've paint them blue

After my wars
After my love
After truths and lies have sang enough
I found a peace
A tide of new
For me, the reason why these walls are blue

Valentine

Written By: Michael Greenberg

And when you say, "no worries"
Or "yea I'm doing just fine"
I know there is more meaning
And that you're not doing alright

I don't need things to make me feel good
And I know you are the same way
But if gestures are given then you should
Not act as if you're guilty

I'm sorry if you're thinking
That you are worth only a pick up line
'Cause you are not
I thought it would be fun
If you would just say you'd be my valentine

And when you say I do "too much" for you
Not one thought of mine costs a dime
Cause its true, everything I do for you only takes all my mind and all my time

I'm sorry if you're thinking
That you are worth only a pick up line
'Cause you are not
I thought it would be fun
If you would just say you'd be my valentine

See you through

Written By: Michael Greenberg

I am not your friend
and I won't settle for foe
I will suit your mood
but I won't go being unknown
Maybe one day maybe I won't worry
I can give my heart some rest
Maybe, call me crazy, all I'm thinkin' 'bout is getting you undressed
I can't pretend that I don't want to

Only you are the one who always brings me down
Always my relief comes when your knees have hit the ground

I feel like your mine
seeing you everyday
This passion deep inside
wouldn't have it any other way
Maybe, call me crazy, it's that body or that small so lovely smile
That's got me wishin' I could use some passion in return once in awhile
Or have another girl explain to you..

Only you are the one who always brings me down
Always my relief comes when your knees have hit the ground

I will see you through
I will be the one for you
I will see you through

I've made my point, I've sang enough

I will see you through
I will be the one for you
I will see you through
