Lyrics

The Answer

Written By: Jeremy Vess

you're about to snap I can see it in your eyes there baby
you just don't know that the pressure's 'bout to blow
but its coming soon
and you've been sleeping around
you can"t settle down
you say you're a rolling stone
it's like you're living but dead
mixed excitement with dread
there's no place you call home

But I found your answer
if I can just get one word in
lay your cards on the table
my hand is gonna win
we can get it together
but you gotta know who to let in
I found your answer
I found your answer

this isn't the life you thought you signed up for, its crazy
you live what you're taught hey that gets you by fine, oh does it now
because you're stuck in the mud, the creeks on the flood
all you can do is keep your head up to breathe
you cry your S.O.S., no one hears your distress
you barely mark the radar screen

But I found your answer
if I can just get one word in
lay your cards on the table
my hand is gonna win
we can get it together
but you gotta know who to let in
I found your answer
I found your answer

you say, that you want an answer
but I know, it's more than you can handle
give it away, give it away
if you're going to find your life, you better give your life
you'll find it all in the end
if you're going to find yourself, you better lose your self
you'll find it all in the end
and if you're going to find your life
honey lose your life
you'll find it all in the end
if you're going to find yourself
you better lose yourself
you'll find it all in the end

I found The Way, The Truth, The Life
yeah I found your answer
Love, Love, Love...
