Lyrics

Black Heart

Written By: Photoside Cafe

Verse 1
her eyes looked deep into mine, all was covered in a glance
I love how the laughter seeps, infectious to my pose
both beauty and strength, could be seen deep
within her being, so fresh indeed
it sings renewal to my soul
it sings renewal to my soul

I can act the act and try to talk the talk but in all reality
my daily routine is to hit the ground falling
hard into grace magnificent bliss indeed
still I try to look up, try to do the right thing
I try to do it on my own
I try to do it on my own

Chorus
I’m in over my head
I’m in over my head, oh love, set my soul free

Verse 2
so I start to tread through the deep that lays in front of me
straining for that which I try to reach
but fail before all as I jump for the prize that leads to my fall
into my deepest fears
I’m still trying on my own
I’m still trying on my own

Chorus
I’m in over my head
I’m in over my head, oh love, set my soul free

Bridge
so free my mind from which I consult
the fountain of the darkest thoughts this world has ever known
they surface from this black heart of mine
oh set my mind free

Chorus
I’m in over my head
I’m in over my head, oh love, set my soul free

Don't Care

Written By: Photoside Cafe

Verse 1
don’t we have a little love left in this place?
can we give a little help to the human race?
don’t we have a little love left in this place?
or do we care, do we care, do we care?

don’t we have a little love left in this place?
can we give a little help to the human race?
don’t we have a little love left in this place?
or do we care, do we care, do we care?

Chorus
you know that I, I want you by my side
just take my hand
you need to know, you’re beautiful to me
you’re beautiful to me

Verse 2
I’ve lost the game I’m living on the street
all from jealousy and trying to feed my greed
even a second chance was not enough for me
I didn’t care, I didn’t care, I didn’t care

we are told what we want and we want it now
don’t think twice if it helps or makes us worse
when tired of life we buy and it feels so good
so we don’t care, we don’t care, we don’t care

Chorus
you know that I, I want you by my side
just take my hand
you need to know, you’re beautiful to me
you’re beautiful to me

Bridge
sick and tired of these thoughts, can I just get out of here
I’ve never lived, never truly loved and I don’t care too much
as long as I’m not thinking I’m enjoying ability to ignore
and love is on my terms and I can’t remember my life
gotta turn my brain off

Chorus
you know that I, I want you by my side
just take my hand
you need to know, you’re beautiful to me
you’re beautiful to me

Sweet Fascination

Written By: Photoside Cafe

Verse 1
hello my love, what are thoughts on the events of today?
I want to know, the way you think
change is soon, are we ready for what’s to come around the bend?
thinking fast, about it all

Chorus
sweet fascination, you are
sweet fascination, my love
you make me weak
passion arises, I am yours

Verse 2
hello my love, let’s dance a while, let our cares slide for now
something real, next to me
you have come, love has arrived, but it’s so quick to go
stay my love, don’t go away

Chorus
sweet fascination, you are
sweet fascination, my love
you make me weak
passion arises, I am yours

Kill Your TV

Written By: Photoside Cafe

Verse 1
it’s an everyday thing
you’re drawn in to the blindness
sights of the unseen
giving orders to the deaf
innocent little ones
sit and take it all in
one by one
everybody falls for it

Chorus
don’t believe everything you hear
don’t think twice they’re only lies
don’t believe everything you see
it’s just a lie, pulling you farther and farther away

Verse 2
images are shown
portraying how life should be lived
approval is given
by those who do not think
voices are heard
“look like this; you’ll be like the rest” they say
oh so convincing
now the questions start swimming

Chorus
don’t believe everything you hear
don’t think twice they’re only lies
don’t believe everything you see
it’s just a lie, pulling you farther and farther away

Bridge
take my hand you’ll soon see
that everything can be found in me
I’ll give it to you, everything you see
if you just fall on your knees

Chorus
don’t believe everything you hear
don’t think twice they’re only lies
don’t believe everything you see
it’s just a lie, pulling you farther and farther away

kill your tv

kill your tv - don’t believe
kill your tv - everything you hear
kill your tv - don’t believe
kill your tv - everything you see
