Lyrics

When Do Waves Become Sand

Written By: Joshua Lauer

Every Time I go,
Something Always shows.
My friends ask me why my face glows.
Every time we're close,
I feel it the most.
Just like waves crashing on the coast.

When do waves become the sand?
When will you say I'm your man?

Edges of the land,
get small and then expand
We're held together by the sand
Wash Away the dirt
Water always flirts
You look so good in your short skirts

When do waves become the sand?
When will you say I'm your man?

Lions, dolphins, tigers, sharks
Land on water, water parks
In the water long for land
Land locked thirsty water stand
On the beach we can reach
On the beach both of each

Need To Laugh

Written By: Joshua Lauer

I found out my pride
Is killing me today
An itch in my side
Is taking me away
From all the things
And all the people
So somebody sings
Please show me your dimples!

You need to laugh
And you might need to cry
In order to laugh
Sometimes you need to sigh

Most of my life is
Better left unsaid
Cause most of the strife
Bouncing into my head
From all the stories
About the people
So somebody sings
I wish this were simple

You need to laugh
And you might need to cry
In order to laugh
Sometimes you need to sigh

You need to laugh
And you might need to cry
In order to laugh
Sometimes you need to sigh

Stop And Know

Written By: Joshua Lauer

When the party's finally done
I'm still having lots of fun.
When the morning's rising sun
I greet her with my gun.

You think you've got me figured out
When you don't know what you're about.

Stop now.
Now you know now.
How to stop now.
Stop Yourself
Critic British
Maritime law caught ya.
Know yourself.

When the battle's in your head
You advice will get you dead.
When everthing you've said
Turns your face beat red.

You think you've got me figured out
When you don't know what you're about.

Stop now.
Now you know now.
How to stop now.
Stop Yourself
Critic British
Maritime law caught ya.
Know yourself.

When you're put under the light,
remain calm without a fight
When you're feeling so uptight
Keep your smiley face so bright.

You think you've got me figured out
When you don't know what you're about.

Stop now.
Now you know now.
How to stop now.
Stop Yourself
Critic British
Maritime law caught ya.
Know yourself.

Hook

Written By: Joshua Lauer

Here's a little story that I wrote
In the history of time
All about a simple happy hook
I almost lost my mind
It felt so good I needed it again
It felt so good to lose my self control
Feel my soul slowly grow

And I've got this funny feeling
When I see you
And I need to feel it more
And more each day
All I think about is
How you've hooked me
And I need to find a
Way to let you know

All it took was just a little faith
It was time I took a leap
Before this I had nothing I could lose
I stole you from your sleep.
It felt so good to know that you were there
It felt so good to look into your eyes
no disguise compromise.

And I've got this funny feeling
When I see you
And I need to feel it more
And more each day
All I think about is
How you've hooked me
And I need to find a
Way to let you know

Now I'm so excited I found you
At exactly the right time
It feels so good whenever you're around
Shakes the ground and I'm crowned.

And I've got this funny feeling
When I see you
And I need to feel it more
And more each day
All I think about is
How you've hooked me
And I need to find a
Way to let you know

Going Blind Together

Written By: Joshua Lauer

Oh Darling Oh Darling
I think we're going blind together!

We don't see the forest for the trees
We see the trees on a TV screen
Everyone lives vicariously through someone else
We teach each other to deny ourselves

Oh Darling Oh Darling
I think we're going blind together!

The most amazing light shows are engaged
To the most terribly tragic habits
When did terrorist attack reports
Become as cool as athletes in sports?

Oh Darling Oh Darling
I think we're going blind together!

How does a box with a portable switch
Get in our heads and establish a niche
More essential than the sun in the summertime
Staring too long could be our biggest crime.

You Will

Written By: Joshua Lauer

I've been trying and trying again
And I'll keep trying till I finally win

You tell me that you've never been in love
And I say you will

If you kiss me once you'll kiss me again
And we'll keep kissing until the night ends

You tell me that you've never been in love
And I say you will

Don't be afraid when the flood takes over
Don't be afraid when you're out of control
Cool yourself down and turn off the controller
Inside of your head and surrender your soul.

I'm in control and it turns you on.
I'm in control and your love switch is on.

Uh huh. Uh huh. Uh huh.
Uh huh. Uh huh. Uh huh.
Uh huh. Uh huh. Uh huh.
Uh huh. Uh huh. Uh huh.

You'll tell me that you're falling in love
And I'll say I know.

I Forgot Me

Written By: Joshua Lauer

You can't tell me I belong
Unless I feel I do
I won't tell you what is wrong
Unless I'm wanting to
Painting pictures all the time
But blinded by the paint
Then the death bells finally chime
And all you do is faint.

Once I knew me
Now I don't know what me is
Have you ever reconsidered what we are?
Once I held you
Now you are so far from me.
You without me
Is simply not the same as us.

I have vanished like the sun
When the clouds roll in fast
Shed some tears and I had fun
But now my time has passed
There's no future left right now
"I" has ceased to exist
Thank you now I'll take my bow
My show will cease and desist.

Once I knew me
Now I don't know what me is
Have you ever reconsidered what we are?
Once I held you
Now you are so far from me.
You without me
Is simply not the same as us.

Although I'm right here still alive
You'll think I've disappeared to survive
I've only come to life yesterday
When I forgot me
What could I say
What could I say?

Once I knew me
Now I don't know what me is
Have you ever reconsidered what we are?
Once I held you
Now you are so far from me.
You without me
Is simply not the same as us.
