Lyrics

river and a road

Written By: sean m painter


hey i'll meet you down there
hey i'm coming to you
when you need me
hey, when you think you're breaking through

have you forgotten
who we were
and how it felt
when we were whole
and the people, we used to know

chorus::::::::::::::::::::
cause i've been thinking
about a river and a road
and a place we call ourselves home
cause i've been thinking
about a river and a road
and a place we call ourselves home

vrs 2

hey, please stop your crying
hey, you're not dying so fast
you're not alone in your pain
everybody's got these same demons to face

into a fire we'd climb
to avoid the things we want to hide
i want to tell you how much our love can do
why won't you listen to the truth
to the truth

chorus::::::::::::::::::::
cause i've been thinking
about a river and a road
and a place we call ourselves home

cause i've been thinking
about a river and a road
and a place we call ourselves home

so far from the shore

Written By: sean m painter

here I am
so far from the shore
don't think I'm so bad off out here
but I should have known
so far from the shore

got lots of excuses
maybe a few of them are lies
but it could have worked out
with a couple more tries
so far from the shore

floating so far from the shore
floating so far from the shore

when I was home
I wanted to leave
now that I'm alone
it's the only place that I want to be
so far from the shore

I was a wisher
latched to a star
dreamed that I had one to dream
never been so far
so far from the shore

floating so far from the shore
floating so far from the shore

follow a shifting course
too much of this love seems forced
carry my lover's torch
through storm winds of change
so far from the shore

used to be a believer
used to trust and see
this is the end that comes
to those who reach into an endless sea
so far from the shore

floating so far from the shore
floating so far from the shore

Believe

Written By: Sean M Painter


you say that you believe in God
but you don't, no you don't
you say that you will change the world, but you won't
not like you hoped

you're waiting for a miracle to come,
and for providence to show
but your own hand must push the cart to make it go
or didn't you know?

you say that you believe in love
but you don't, no you don't
are you strong enough to lead by example, not by the sword
does true peace come from war?

you're waiting for a miracle to come,
and for providence to show
but your own hand must push the cart to make it go
or didn't you know?

bombs are blasting in the street
clerics claim to see the light
peace to pieces,
waiting in vain,
for the spoils of a promise land
won by might...

you say that you believe in hope,
but you don't want to be let down
do you still believe it's worth it
with the state things are in now?
the way things are now?

you're waiting for a miracle to come,
and for providence to show
but your own hand must push the cart to make it go
oh didn't you know?
