Lyrics

Parting Words

Written By: Robert Scrase

I thought if I believed enough
The love would come rising up
But there are some things you just can't force

It hurt real bad when you told me no
I didn't feel like letting go
I didn't want to be alone again

It's been a hard, hard year
Times are rough and it has made you tough
Now you know fear is no excuse for love

There are times when you'd like to go back
To when the world was white and black
But there are some things that will never change

Take a look inside of yourself
Before you run to someone else
Only then can you give love away

It's been a hard, hard year
Times are rough and it has made you tough
Now you know fear is no excuse for love

Willow

Written By: Robert Scrase

Just to hear your voice
Would send me back in time
Back then so young and so blind

Believe me now,
Beleive me now,
I'd like to love you forever

And just to see you smile
I'd walk miles of open road
Your laughter always seemed to lighten up my load

Believe me now,
Believe me now,
I'd like to love you forever

Just to feel your touch
It might wake me up
From this dream I've been dreaming

Believe me now,
Believe me now,
I'd like to love you forever

Give Me An Answer

Written By: Robert Scrase

In the light of day
I get high on dreams
Nothing will ever change
Everything is as it seems

Wake up and sense the feeling
Get out of your mind tonight
Nothing you don't say will make it better
Nothing you can say will make it right

Give me an answer, I need an answer
Though I already know what your answer is
No matter what you say, nothing will change
Still I need to hear it from your lips

You're incoherent, you're babbling
I wish you'd just make sense
Please be simple, please be kind
No matter how this all ends

I know of unspoken truths
I know of implied demands
And now I'm asking you out loud
To help me understand

Give me an answer, I need an answer
Though I already know what your answer is
No matter what you say, nothing will change
I still need to hear it from your lips

I can hear you so clearly
I can hear you in my mind
But you are silent to my ears
And you're out of time

Don't think before you speak
Don't calculate a plan
I need an answer, I need it now
That is my only demand

Give me an answer, I need an answer
Though I already know what your answer is
No matter what you say, nothing will change
I still need to hear it from your lips
