Lyrics

Dust

Written By: Peter

Feels like
I've got the weight of the world resting on my shoulders
Feels like
I've got too much time on my hands right now
Feels like
I should be growing older
Feels like
I've wasted just about all of my given time

Sometimes I find it hard to get along with anyone
Sometimes I find it hard to carry on when everythings gone wrong
Sometimes I think I should just turn away
But not this time

Cuz I'm not gonna leave here
Till you know my name
No I'm not gonna leave here
Till you know my name

Feels like
I've lost all of my inspiration
Feels like
I've lost all of my hope to this desperation
Feels like
I might be growing colder
Feels like I might be growing sober and alone

Sometimes I find it hard to get along with anyone
Sometimes I find it hard to carry on when everythings gone wrong
Sometimes I think I should just turn away
But not this time

Cuz I'm not gonna leave here
Till you know my name
No I'm not gonna leave here till you know my name
No I'm not gonna leave here
Till you know
Who I am

Well who the hell am I?
Who the hell are you?

Holding 125

Written By: Peter "Po Boy" Higgins

From her hiding place
A girl appears into the daylight
Although it's cold outside she insists that she dont need her coat
Well the January air wraps around her like a long last friend
but she pretends not to notice that her hands are getting numb, and her tears are starting to freeze
Well I've had days like that.

An old man came up to me, and asked if I could spare some of my precious time
So I sat down and listened while he told me a story of a time when he was alive
He's got a wife in Nova Scotia and his son was a Merchant Marine
He lost his job at the factory the day they brought in all the machines. Damn those machines
And as I stared into his eyes, I watched him watch the world pass by

Now serving number nine, you're still holding one hundred and twenty five
Whoever said that this would be easy, never got left standing at the back of the line.

Into You

Written By: Peter

I don't wanna be angry
I don't wanna be alone
I don't wanna be the only one that I've ever really known
If I tell you my dreams
Will you keep them safe inside
Or will you use it all against me just to tear down my pride

If I close my eyes
I can still see the sun
If they tell me to walk
Then I'm still gonna run
If I stand too close
There's a chance I might fall
But when the time is right
I want to fall into you.

My soul sits quietly in a box
That reads warning fragile glass
And love is just a metaphor for what I've had in the past
Don't think that I'm untouchable
But don't think that I'm naive
I'm just a little bit worried that you're exactly what I need.

If I close my eyes
I can still see the sun
If they tell me to walk
Then I'm still gonna run
If I stand too close
There's a chance I might fall
But when the time is right
I want to fall into you.
