Lyrics

Not My Way!

Written By: Scott McKenna

Everyday, I stand at the same spot in the street.
Never changing my breath, never skipping a beat.
I see you floating by, you're like a pretty little butterfly.
But for some odd reason, I can never catch your eye.

Every single day, you fail to look my way.
I'm just an ordinary man, with ordinary thoughts.
Trying to find some love, no matter what it costs.
Maybe a gust of wind will blow you off track, and you'll find your way to me.

Another day goes by, that I sit and watch you fly.
Not a worry in your eye, not a shadow from the sky.
You fly through the breeze, so high up in the trees.
But you never seem, you never seem to find me.

You're like a butterfly, I guess I'm like a bee.
You're looking for the flowers, and not at all for me.
I'm not gonna chase you down, or follow you around.
The only thing you seem to want, is everything but me.

Fly little butterfly, fly
Fly so gracefully, right up to the sky
Fly.

I Know!

Written By: Scott McKenna

I sit and watch the rain fall down, and I know that you are there.
I know that you are listening, and I know you're aware.
So I'm just asking for forgiveness, for the sins that I've commit.
And because of your faithfulness, I'll never quit.

I'm just praying that you'll sit me free, from the struggles of this world.
I can't take this anymore...

I know you're there, and I know you care, and I feel your pain when I am wrong.
With your sacrifice, you paid the price, so that I may feel so alive.

Why do I fall so short, I'll never reach the top..but you don't ask of that from me, that's not what you need to see.
You simply ask for my love, you simply ask that I believe, tell the world about your power, tell em' you'll never leave..

I know you're there, and I know you care, and I feel your pain when I am wrong.
With your sacrifice, you paid the price, so that I may feel so alive.
I feel so alive..

I thank you I'm alive..

You Feel No Pain!

Written By: Scott McKenna

I sat and watched you run away, I never saw you turn back.
You keep telling me you love me, then why you running so far off track.
You said things were getting better, I didn't agree with you at all.
No but I'm not gonna be the one, I'm not gonna be the one to fall..

You stumble in the darkness, when you can't find the light, then you stop searching, that's when our worlds collide...

I saw you from the window pane, I saw you from the evergreen, I saw you standing in the rain.
You told me that you'd never leave, my friends told me not to believe, and all you can say is what a shame, you feel no pain.

So where you going now? Now that you ran away from me, you keep telling me you love me, then why's it so hard for me to see.
I didn't you to go, but now I could careless, because everytime you try and make things better, you turn them into a mess.

I saw you from the window pane, I saw you from the evergreen, I saw you standing in the rain.
You told me that you'd never leave, my friends told me not to believe, and all you can say is what a shame, you feel no pain.
