Stained…Glass Heart
Lyrics

NOTHING’S RIGHT

Nothing’s right
No one’s coming to save me
I’m on my own…
Nothing’s right
No one’s coming to save me
I’m all alone…
I’m on my own…

You want to be everything
for everyone else,
and you wish you were everything…
everything but yourself
I keep asking,
Where do I belong?
Who am I supposed to be?
Which story should I be telling?
Is anyone interested in knowing, me?

Nothing’s right
no one’s coming to save me
I’m on my own…
Nothing’s right
no one’s coming to save me
I’m all alone…
I’m on my own…

Finding myself is like hunting for ghosts
My soul, a stained glass window…
Different colors creating the picture I call myself
but the light has gone out,
I’ve lost sight of that vision
All the colors are just broken glass!
Stones have shattered my core
and I’m lost once again on this one way road to hell!

Nothing’s right
No one’s coming to save me
I’m on my own…
Nothing’s right
No one’s coming to save me
I’m all alone …
I’m on my own…

It’s so easy to get lost on the less traveled path
when there’s only a new moon in the sky overhead.
Not Even a friendly face can point me back home.
The only light is from falling stars…
Falling stars…
Falling…
Stars…

Nothing’s right…
Nothing’s right…

Wake Up

You can’t sit there
silent forever
hoping it will get done by someone else,
Because money’s always talking
Always talking in greedy ears,
and money’s only thinking about itself…
While truth stands alone
in the corner
hidden behind the shadows of doubt…
Seems like we’re trying to kill each other
Just to stay alive
Oh no…

I keep wondering
Would things be different?
If none of us had the sense of sight…
We’d all be forced to
see each other
For who we really are inside.
Is our vision getting in the way
of seeing the truth?
Are we all asleep
walking in a trance
forgetting our interconnected roots?

When will we wake up?
When will we wake up?
We’re just hurting each other
We’re just hurting each other
We’re just hurting…
We’re all hurting…

I can’t take this mass destruction anymore,
and people killing trees, and bees, and poisoning the water,
and forgetting this planet is a home for everyone!
I pray we’ll all see the light one day,
and want to take care of what we share,
and learn to focus on how to love…
Oh God!
Can we heal from this?

When will we wake up?
When will we wake up?
We’re just hurting each other
We’re just hurting each other
We’re just hurting…
We’re all hurting…

Will we wake up?
Will we wake up?

DEEP WATERS

I was walking
When I heard a voice say…
Can you help me?
Help me
I’ve fallen down,
way down…

I searched for the voice
and then I saw you,
You were standing
near a puddle
disappointment covered your face.

As I drew near
you seemed frightened
and you moved,
opposite my direction.

I tried to run
to your side
but soon I
found myself drenched in a puddle,
and I tore my new dress.

I wandered the town
while my eyes
they darted the crowd
You were no where
well I can’t help but wonder…
was it me?

I saw you facing the water
You were looking at the surface,
but not admiring your reflection…
I called your name
and you turned around
your eyes
they widened
then turned to the ground
I said…
I’m only here to help you
Like any friend would…
But you pushed me
aside…
You pushed me aside,
and this time
I fell into
your waters
your deep waters
your waters
your deep waters
Your waters…
Oh
Waters…

And you left me
There…
You left me
there…
Drowning,
in my
new torn dress…

Hang on
cause we’re going way down…
Hang on
We’re going down
we’re down into your
waters
Your deep waters
your waters
Your deep waters
your waters
Oh… waters!

In too deep…

BETTER

The days keep getting shorter
The time of year is here again,
when the night runs off with my friend…
Dreaming has become an expensive hobby for me,
but I can’t erase them from my heart.
I wasn’t kidding when I told you
I am made of glass…

I may never be better than you
I may never be beauty,
I may never be happier than you,
All I can be…
Is me.

I watch from my window,
Your life’s so perfect
From where I stand
And I wonder how did I get it so wrong?
Why don’t I belong?
I cast my eyes to the moon’s smile,
maybe there’s a lesson hidden in the sky?

I may never be better than you,
I may never be beauty,
I may never be happier than you,
All I can be…

I may never be better than you,
I may never be beauty,
I may never be happier than you,
All I can be…
Is me….

The days are getting longer
That time of year is here again
Now the night is my friend,
and my heart’s a warrior
growing stronger everyday
with every dragon I defeat.
My noble cause,
to embrace my own song…

I may never be better than you,
I may never be beauty,
I may never be happier than you
All I can be…

I may never be better than you,
I may never be beauty,
I may never be happier than you
All I can be…
I may never be…
All I can be…
I may never be…
All I can be,
is a better version of me.
Is a better version
of me…
of me…

Over

Do you have a reason to say goodbye to me?
Do you have a reason, or is it all misunderstood?
Do you have a reason for anything you say?
Let me know before you turn away.

I have a reason I need you to believe.
When I said I love you,
I gave you part of me.
Please don’t stand there with one foot out the door,
cause we’ve both been here before.

I never realized you did not reciprocate
the love I gave you freely everyday.
How could I have been blind for so long?
Our song has been over
Our song’s been over,
Our song’s been over,
It’s been over for so long…

Why can’t I just let you go?
You’re someone I no longer know,
Empty dreams of you and me left me hallow…
The music’s stopped, and I’ve been dancing here alone,
wishing you’d come back,
but distant thunder chased away our fantasy,
Our song is over…

The time has come now,
we both have to go,
This parting is different
because now I know…
I never thought
we would reach this place,
Please don’t stand there counting tears on my face…

It’s over…
Our song is over
Our song is over…

HONEST AND TRUE

I don’t need a sunny day to know
I love you…
Our love shines brighter through the darkest days anyway…
And if my hair is out of place I know,
you’ll still love me
I know this because,
you held my hand,
even when tears painted my face…

I don’t need him or her to tell me
how I feel about you,
and me…
After all,
it’s not my heart beating in their chest
everyday…
Our love is honest,
our love is true,
you have the strength to let me be…
To let me be me,
I hope I do the same for you…

Hey, I know I’m less than perfect,
and my flaws may have hurt you
from time to time…
But I’ve learned from us,
and now I know,
love is a seed
it does take time to grow…
We need a sunny day
we need the rainy too,
and I need to be me
and I need you
to be,
you.

With this in mind
and our hearts open,
I know we’ll keep on
growing together…
Because our love has been,
and it will be
honest and true
I love you…

ABANDONED HOUSE

Chasing you has worn a hole in my soul,
So I’m done asking questions.
The fog has lifted and it’s clear to see
our paths diverged…
and dreams of us have been left behind
submerged in the mist…
I’m so tired,
from holding on,
to all the times you left me hanging
with one hand tied behind my back…
I finally see,
the grass was always just as green in my backyard,
and I don’t want to waste my life raking
piles of anger and frustration.

A house is not a home when your heart’s been left alone…
collecting dust with forgotten books upon the shelf
and I get tired of gazing through cracked windows,
thinking,
do I look through the right side?
or keep wondering why I never left…

I can’t keep waiting for you at this station
of the cross roads in my life…
Will I choose to keep a broken treasure
held together with glue
whose pieces don’t fit quite as they used to?
Or is it time?
Maybe it’s time..
It’s time I just let go of this old sentimental toy.

A house is not a home when your heart’s been left alone
crumbling
with the front steps where we used to sit,
and I get tired of gazing through cracked windows
thinking
do I look through the right side?
or keep wondering why I never left?

Time is telling to shut the door
Save your heart before it drowns
in poisoned ink!
You’re living in an abandoned house
overgrown
with broken hearts
and frozen dreams…

This house is not my home
my heart’s been left alone
sinking
like the wooden floor where we used to dance,
and I’m so tired of gazing through cracked windows
Thinking…
Wondering…
What ever made me think that I could fix this, on my own…

ARE YOU FOR REAL?

I used to think I’d like to get to know you
until I realized you don’t know who you are,
and how can I get to know you
when even you don’t really know who you are?
Even you don’t know who you are…

Are you for real?
Or just another illusion
of what a friend looks like?
Whose identity did you steal
to make it look like we would turn out fine?

I used to think I’d like to get to know you
until I realized you don’t know who you are,
and how can I get to know you
when even you don’t really know who you are?
Even you don’t know who you are…

Oh just be honest my dear,
to me it’s very clear
you’re only looking out for you.
Making sure what you say,
and what you do always fits in
with your crowd.

I used to think I’d like to get to know you
until I realized you don’t know who you are,
And how can I get to know you
when even you don’t really know who you are?
Even you don’t know who you are…

Stay away from my heart!
Keep away from my soul!
Stay away from me!
Stay away from me!

Just stay away from my heart!
Keep away from my soul!
Stay away from me!
Stay away from me!

I used to think I’d like to get to know you
I really did…
I used to think I’d like to get to know you
until I realized…
You lie
You lie
You LIE!
Are you for real?
(Don’t know who you are…)
Are you for real?
(Don’t know who you are…)
Are you for real?
(Don’t know who you are…)
