Lyrics

Someday

Written By: T. Stanley / B. Hollis / J. Hollis

To the salty taste of many tears
mixed with lime and too many beers
she wakes to find she's still alone and bitter
faint memories of many rooms
they haunt her like Gaderra's tombs
the places that she wished she'd never been
she shuts her eyes against the dawn
with all her might she wills it gone
can't everything just be ok again

Somewhere I know I'll find a better place
Somehow, I know that things have got to change
Someon, will hold me close and take away my pain
Someday

The weight of blame it fall on him
As night turns out and he turns in
Toss, sweat, turn, think. Can't get her off his mind
She cried and said I can't believe you lied
He shuts his eyes against the dawn
How could I have been so wrong
Can't everything just be ok again

Somewhere I know I'll find a better place
Somehow, I know that things have got to change
Someon, will hold me close and take away my pain
Someday

Ohh child things are gonna get better
Ohh, brighter days

Somewhere I know I'll find a better place
Somehow, I know that things have got to change
Someon, will hold me close and take away my pain
Someday

Save Myself

Written By: T. Stanley/ B. Hollis / J. Hollis

I ate the bread I drank the wine
Oh, sweet communion
The taste was bitter to the swine
The price of retribution
I went down to the muddy water
I didn't come clean my heart just got darker

I tried to crawl up on the cross
Oh, I've played the fool
I've cut the corners and been caught
My own golden rule
I went up on the mountainside
I brought back stones but it was all a pack of lies

I can't save myself
Why do I try to save myself

I told the father all my sins
Whispered my confession
Walked out and did it all again
Hid from my reflection
I went down to the riverside
I looked across but it was way too wide

I can't save myself
Why do I try to save myself

Open up the sky and let it rain
Love, pour over me and take my pain

I can't save myself
Why do I try to save myself
