Lyrics

All I Know

Written By: Paul Eliot

All I KNOW

ALL I KNOW ALL I KNOW
ITS A LONG WAY HOME
WHEN YOU'RE ALL ALONE
ALL I SEE ALLI SEE
IS WAY TOO MUCH
FOR LITTLE ME

TENDER HAS NO MEANING BUT FOR THIS
TO BUST APART STRONG CHAINS WITH A KISS
AND ALTHO I HAVE SLIPPED OFF LOVES SWEET CLIFF
I KNOW TOMORROW BRINGS THE THINGS I MISS

ALL I FEEL ALL I FEEL
IS A MILLION THINGS PILING UP ON ME
AND JUST WHEN I GET THEM IN THEIR PLACE
ANOTHER COMES ALONG AND RUINS MY DAY
AND ALL THINGS ARE PROBLEMS TO ME
BUT I’M NOT GETTING BITTER THO I’M SADDER EVERYDAY

BROKEN HEARTS BROKEN HEARTS
TAKE YOUR TIME TAKE YOUR TIME
HEAL THYSELF I HEARD IT SAID
TAKE WHAT YOU WANT
PRETTY SOON WE’RE DEAD
TAKE WHAT YOU NEED
BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND
BUT MY HEART NEEDS LOVE UNTIL THE VERY END

ALL I KNOW ALL I KNOW
MY HEART NEEDS LOVE
UNTIL THE VERY END

My Neighbor

Written By: Paul Eliot

MY NEIGHBOR

He can’t sing unless he’s getting drunk
When he’s had a few his voice starts comin thru
He’ll sit on the porch, sing songs at the Moon
Then the cops roll by ,tell him to go inside, too soon

He holds a job every now and then
He moves a lot and borrows from his friends
At a bus stop at midnight
I saw him on a bench
Tuning up to play, to the traffic, till it ends

Then he goes back home to that broken down house he rents
With the busted screens, and the room spins as he dreams
He once saw a man come to his little town
With taps on his shoes he danced all around
And people threw money at his feet
He thought that was cool
He kept that thought in his head, it helped get him thru school

He can’t sing unless he’s getting drunk
When he’s had a few his voice starts comin thru
He’d like to get a record in the store
He’d like people to know who he was

He’s got a new song, it’s one of his best
He’s heard hits on the radio
There about as good as his
He’s gonna go inside a studio
And lay down a few tracks
If he can get the money together, and keep the landlord,
And cops off his back
He’ll enter the digital age, sometime later this year
And even he is amazed, he made it to here

He can’t sing unless he’s getting drunk
When he’s had a few his voice starts comin thru
He’ll sit on the porch, and sing songs at the Moon

Time

Written By: Paul Eliot

Time

Time is ticking away
Time is ticking away

I can hear the sink drip
I got a spot on my lip
There’s another lost ship
out on the waves
Time is ticking away

All the water going down the drain
just ain’t never the same
The acid in the rain
killed the roses that I gave you
Time is ticking away

Time is my enemy
There’s never enough
Moves in a straight line
don’t play don’t bluff
Time unwinds
as it binds
like a handcuff

It’ll turn truth into a lie
A lie into a war
And if you die
you ain’t got no more
Time is ticking away

If you lose it
it’s gonna forget you
If you use it
It’s gonna let you
You never know how much you got
and I ain’t gonna bet you
That time ain’t ticking away

Maybe I love time
Maybe it’s not hate
I’m greedy for it baby
and a lot I seem to waste
But time is ticking away

The Thinker

Written By: Paul Eliot

The Thinker

if you're thinking of me
I'm thinking of you
you left me wondering
what did I do
never said why
never said goodbye
I wanna go on now
but you're on my mind

as I search thru my head
for the words that were said
I check our old love letters for clues
the future calls and I put her on hold
will I be happy or will I grow cold
so I'm letting go,
you said we were thru
but I'm thinking too much
still thinking of you

does your heart skip a beat
when you see someone on the street
who looks like me
does your mind play that game
that makes you wanna lay the blame on me
never said why
never said goodbye
in my mind, you're on a decline
you fell off your throne
you turned down my love
soon you'll be gone, so long

someone calls me
more deserving than you
someone calls me, the words I thought you'd use
I think we can make it
yea the future looks good
cause I'm thinking of her
thinking of love
not thinking of you,
thinking of her, thinking of love,
not thinking of you

Backin Up

Written By: Paul Eliot

Backing Up

I need backing up
like a falling tree backing up
stinging bee backing up
rolling sea backing up
I need you more than you need me

I can't make the past go away
I can't make tomorrow come today
the tragic reminders are what you say
are keeping you from loving me today

When I'm walking down the street
and the rain wets my feet
my nose is cold, my toes are froze
I'm thinking of you and what you do for me
as I drink my coffee and shake in my coat
you never had to look that hard
to see that I'm a fool for you

I need backing up
like a falling tree backing up
rolling sea backing up
stinging bee backing up
I need you just like you need me

The Fall

Written By: Paul Eliot

The Fall

I fell in the fall
met a girl with soul
she took me to the well
and tried to make me whole

she tore my whole world down
spun my head around
I thought I was in the air
but I was on the ground

she loves me and I don't know why
she loves me and it fell from the sky

I waited an hour for her
it felt like a day
I asked if we'd be together
she said someday
I fell back in her arms and closed my eyes
later that night I realized

she loves me and I don't know why
she loves me and it fell from the sky

when I went to bed
the last words she said
sounded in my ear deep inside my head
I saw myself as king
failure didn't mean a thing
past disasters cleared
Love conquers anything

she loves me and I don't know why
she loves me and it fell from the sky
