Lyrics

What Are You Waiting For?

Written By: Mike Collingsworth

What Are You Waiting For?

Hey you in the castle, are you hiding from someone?
There’s a weight on your shoulders, making your own dungeon.
There’s no need to worry no need to run away,
I’m gonna come and save the day.

Chorus
What are you waiting for
Pick yourself up,
I’ll be your knight in shining armor,
If you’ll be there,
I’ll be your fairy tale.

Verse 2
You say you’re miserable,
You don’t feel beautiful,
But beauty is from the inside, and you’ve got a heart of gold.
Will you be my queen,
If I promise to take the pain away,
Build you a castle far away.

Chorus

Bridge
And we’ll ride out through the sunset,
Leave this place with no regret, as long as you’re here with me.
Catch these dreams and never forget,
For your lifetime you can bet, you’ll lay your head with me.

Chorus

Superman

Written By: Mike Collingsworth

Superman

I’m this walking disaster, Sit in my mind and I fester fester,
I’m a ticking bomb, so fuel my flames burning faster faster,
Why am I always the bad guy, I did what I can to save your life,
And I’m about to run dry of my innocence, can’t resist, won’t even try.

So why am I always the bad guy, I do what I can to get by.

Chorus
Am I superman, can I catch you half way down?
You call me superman, I don’t think you understand,
I try to be everything but I just can’t do it at all,
I can’t be superman, I can’t even catch myself when I fall.

Verse 2
I’m a few days shy of looking insanity straight in the eye.
I want to make you proud but the mood in this place it seems to destroy.
I can’t stand to see your passion fade in time,
So I’ll do what I can, I can’t be perfect, I won’t even try.

So why am I always the bad guy, I do what I can to get by.

Chorus

Bridge
I fall to my knees and I shake on the floor,
Think to myself I can’t do this anymore,
Heart on my sleeve, burdens set free,
I give it up, I give it up, I give it up.

So why am I always the bad guy, I do what I can to get by

Chorus

On The Radio

Written By: Mike Collingsworth

On The Radio

Not too long ago,
This boy had a feeling he was ready to go,
Had a six string and a dream,
To be the biggest on the radio,
Then he met this girl,
She tried so hard but never understood his world,
A music man who lives on the road

He packs is bag and it’s time to go,
Chase that dream for the radio,
She’s nervous, she doesn’t know,
If he’ll ever come home,

Chorus
Hold my hear and don’t let go,
I’ll be back before you know,
She said I’ll wait up till you get home, just to hear your voice,
You’ll hear me on the radio.

Verse 2

Now his dream came true,
Bright lights and the camera crews,
The roar of the crowds from miles around, every night on the road,
The one thing he remembers to do, is call that girl to say I love you,
She’s proud of the things he’s done, Just wishes he’d come home

Chorus

Bridge
It’s a dream that he can’t lose,
An addiction to the music too,
But that doesn’t mean she’s not important too

Chorus

How Does It Feel?

Written By: Mike Collingsworth

How Does It Feel?

Intro
Forgive me father, for running away from this,
Somewhere along the way, I lost my innocence.

Verse 1
How does it feel to be so loved?
No matter what you’ve done,
I’ve been lost now for so long,
So I lift my heart with this song,

And I’ll make it through alive, because of you,

Chorus 1
And the water, come crashing down,
Like the blood of my father, when he was crowned
I am ready.

Verse 2
I should be cursed a thousand times,
For the things I’ve done in my life,
And I struggle with feeling horrible,
But like the sunrise I am beautiful.

And I’ll make it through alive, because of you,

Chorus 2
And the water, come crashing down,
Like the blood of my father,
I was lonely, so far down,
So lift me up now,
I am ready.

Bridge
Forgive me father, for running away from this,
Somewhere along the way, I lost my innocence.

Chorus 2

If You want me Back

Written By: Mike Collingsworth

If You Want Me Back

Verse 1
There’s a stillness in the air,
Leaves are falling everywhere, and you’re gone,
I stay warm at night,
I really don’t know why,
Because your side of the bed is like ice,
You left with no goodbye,

Chorus 1
If you want me back (want me back)
Well that’s too bad,
You’re already gone (ready gone)
And I’m fine with that,

Verse 2
Is it cold in there?
With your demon in the air,
And you always got what you wanted,
Should I take my time?
Remember you for a while,
Or replace you with this half hearted smile,
You left with no goodbye,

Chorus 2
If you want me back (want me back)
Well that’s too bad,
You’re already gone (ready gone)
And I’m fine with that,
Left me standing here after all these years,
With no heart at all (heart at all)
You never looked back,

Bridge
Go ahead, take me, for all I am,
Go ahead, go ahead, Yeah…….

Chorus 2
If you want me back (want me back)
Well that’s too bad,
You’re already gone (ready gone)
And I’m fine with that,
Left me standing here after all these years,
With no heart at all (heart at all)
You never looked back

Innocent Rising

Written By: Mike Collingsworth

Innocent Rising

I’ve seen the bruised and the broken,
I’ve seen the innocent die,
I’ve seen a rich man beg and stripped of all his pride,
I’ve seen the tears that fall when people lose it all,
I’ve seen a broken mother crying for her baby.

Come on Come on get up lets go,
And all your courage will show,
It’s time to fight for hope,

Chorus
We are the innocent rising,
We are the backbone that’s driving,
We are the future today,
So get up, get up, we’re soldiers of a new day.

Verse 2
Millions are dying from sickness,
God as my own witness, there’s got to be something better than this,
So what are you going to do, walk out and refuse,
How would it feel if they walked out on you?

Chorus

Bridge
Come on, come on, come on, come on, let’s go, X3

You want it all, but you can’t seem to be helpful to anyone.
People are dying and families are crying, waiting on some hope.
And if we don’t start trying, we’ll keep dying, lost souls without a home,
Drifting on forever in the cold

Chorus

Good Tomorrow

Written By: Mike Collingsworth

Good Tomorrow

Verse 1
Forget me and bury me down,
My days were numbered and time ran out,
This is the day where I let you down,
Sit here, staring at this paper,
Trying hard to make it clear of what I have done,

I thought maybe I’ll be good tomorrow,
Temptation soon to follow,
Oh God, have mercy on my soul,

Chorus
I’m not a saint; I’m just a sinner,
A winner in the end,
Had a second chance but threw it away again,
Good thing I’ve still got tomorrow, far away from sorrow

Verse 2
Today, I came unraveled, then you found me face down in the gravel,
And if I’m gonna die, please take me home tonight,
Living too fast and I lost control,
A crazy little rebel on a dead end road,
And there’s the wooden cross with my name on the top

I thought maybe I’ll be good tomorrow,
Temptation soon to follow,
Oh God, have mercy on my soul,

Chorus

Bridge
I’m begging, I’m begging to please get this over,
There’s a ghost in my mind and I’m getting colder,
And I can’t feel the touch of the ones I love,
I’m face to face with a decision to make,
Got to find out what road to take,
And each one the demons are calling my name,

I thought maybe I’ll be good tomorrow,
Temptation soon to follow,
Oh God, have mercy on my soul,

Chorus
