Lyrics

Give it up to us

Written By: The Shoreline

Give it up to us
And our calloused energy
That keeps us on
The photographs will tell
Our timeless story
For years to come

Oh the centuries that carry
Our words will say
More than we want them to
These days are all that’s left
All the years worth secrets kept
This is our time

The shoreline becomes
Our only excuse
To leave ourselves
And after it all
We will be reminded of what
What it means to fall

We’re losing our sight
From all these
Blinding lights
We’ll have to keep
Our eyes on the prize
Because there’s too much distraction
From cameras flashing us back to the coast
Well if we keep our focus on
We might be all right

Oh the centuries that carry
Our words will say
More than we want them to
These days are all that’s left
All the years worth secrets kept
This is our time

The shoreline becomes
Our only excuse
To leave ourselves
And after it all
We will be reminded of what
What it means to fall

We’ve got our bottles
Filled with our past mistakes
And in the throttle
We throw it all away
But all these problems
They just keep building up and we can’t get away

This is our last chance
To turn our voice loud
And make ourselves
Ourselves heard.




Caroline

Written By: The Shoreline

All of your lies
Bring me back here
Now I’m just asking myself
If I’ll keep waiting around
Another lonely night just for you

Caroline you,
You brought me distress
Showed me what love was like
Then held me in your arms to not
Ever let go
Filled my head with empty promises
Now I’ve got nothing left.

Caroline, I’ve been calling you tonight
Oh it hurts!

Caroline does it hurt to see me fall
I’m still kicking myself
Sweet Caroline, does it hurt to see us fall?
I’m still kicking myself

Now you return
With a smile on your face
Saying all the sweet words you can think of
Which reminds me that I’m still right here
Hurting over words you said just yesterday

Caroline no,
I won’t be played
We both know exactly how this goes
Don’t hold me in your arms again
I’ll have to let go
Cut you out from all my memories
But still I’ll have nothing left…

Caroline, you’ve been calling me all night.
Oh this hurts!

If I’m to be the one you love then hold me close.
We try to find our purpose in the end
Even though we just can’t let go
We were close
Now it seems I must be strong
But I just can’t
Erase you off.

Caroline does it hurt to see me fall
I’m still kicking myself
Sweet Caroline, does it hurt to see us fall?
I’m still kicking myself





Listen

Written By: The Shoreline

Listen to my words
For all the times
You ran away through the door
Listen to everything
I’ve got in me

Dreaming what I miss the most
Holding you forever close
I won’t let go this time

Both eyes closed and half asleep
Meet me where we always meet
We’ll be alone tonight.

Listen to my words
For all the times
You ran away through the door
Listen to everything
I’ve got in me

I lay flat in bed
with my hands on my chest
Waiting for my dream to take flight
Where are we meeting tonight?

Something like a loving child
Embracing what we fear the most
Is learning how to walk again
I’ll walk again

Listen to my words
For all the times
You ran away through the door
Listen to everything
I’ve got in me
