Lyrics

Lost

Written By: Vince Smith

Summer breezes turn to bitter autumm rain
As I walk these streets still reeling from the pain
The local liquor store is full of my best friends
And now my life is like a nightmare with no end

I can't believe your love is gone...
It gets so hard to carry on
I knew I never should have thrown it all away
I'm forever lost without you

Autumn rain, it turns to swiftly falling snow
Sometimes I feel like I've got nowhere left to go
Without your love, I'm like a candle with no flame
Since you've been gone, my life just hasn't been the same

I can't believe your love is gone
The hold on me was just too strong
Can't ever seem to get you out of my mind
I'm forever lost without you... without you, yeah

(solo)

Maybe someday this blizzard will somehow turn to spring
But right now I'm snowblind and I cannot see a thing...

I can't believe your love is gone...
It gets so hard to carry on
I knew I never should have thrown it all away
I'm forever lost without you

Lost forever...
Lost forever...
Lost forever...
And I'll never, ever love that way again... never again.

Killing Time

Written By: Vince Smith

All the lazy days I spent with my friends till wee hours of the morning
All the nights in the clubs sitting round when I should've been performing
Didn't notice at the time that the world was passing me by
Should've known it then that life was passing me by

Now I'm fed up with my life, gonna make some changes
Just needed to decide in my mind to rearrange it

(chorus)
How I wish I could get back all the time I wasted Killing Time
So I could spend a couple years catching all the things I missed The first time around...
Yes I wish I could get back all the years and the tears that I've cried
So I could do it all again knowing then what I know now

They say living in the past, they say that is the worst thing you can do
And I believe that they are right and what they say is true
But if I had just one chance to make up for all that I lost
I would owe it to myself no matter what it cost

Now I'm fed up with my life, gonna make some changes
Just needed to decide in my mind to rearrange it

(chorus)
How I wish I could get back all the time I wasted Killing Time
So I could spend a couple years catching all the things I missed The first time around...
Yes I wish I could get back all the years and the tears that I've cried
So I could do it all again knowing then what I know now... yeah

(solo)

Now I'm fed up with my life, gonna make some changes
Just needed to decide in my mind to rearrange it

(chorus)
How I wish I could get back all the time I wasted Killing Time
So I could spend a couple years catching all the things I missed The first time around...
Yes I wish I could get back all the years and the tears that I've cried
So I could do it all again knowing then what I know now

(outro)
Just killing time...
Just killing time...
Yeah, killing time...
Just killing time.

Reel Me In

Written By: Vince Smith

Pick me up and put me down
Like a book upon the shelf
It's not easy to be me
When I'm not feeling myself

Turn me on, then you turn me down
Fill my head with all your lies
It tears a hole in my lonely soul
But you'll never see me cry...

And like the sucker I am, I get fooled again
There's no escape, I can hardly wait!
And with a devilish grin, she reels me in

Make me rush then you make me wait
Like a mouse in a maze
Use me up, then you toss me out
Like a faded suitcase
Give me love, then you take it away
And it makes me wanna scream
I wish I could make my time with you
Turn from a nightmare to a dream

And like the sucker I am, I get fooled again
There's no escape, I can hardly wait!
And with a devilish grin, she reels me in...
I just can't win

And like the sucker I am, I get fooled again
There's no escape, I can hardly wait!
And with a devilish grin, she reels me in
I just can't win

You got me hook, line and sinker!
No, I just can't win
No, I just can't win
No, I just can't win so just reel me in.
