Any Man In America
I only know spending time away
I only know the truth is spoken
Best when brutally so honestly.
I' ll let you know you set
The standards lyrically for me
One single middle finger
Say raise it up
My speech will always be free
Like Martin Luther King
You had meaning to me
Let me start with I've let you go
But you don't get it, though
Politely I've asked you to leave,
But still you follow
It's hard when you're full of heart
When the house you built just falls apart
Well keep the paint fresh, keep the outside clean
Make sure the neighbors see you wear that ring
Don't tell them a thing, they don't know you like me
To find the trail that I'm supposed to lead
You'll find that our roller coaster everything
But you kill me with your princess deeds
What a smile
I'd walk a mile
Life's a crusade
God made you for me
And I don't wanna
For The Love
Intro: ("Come here. Why are you crying?"
"Cuz I wanna stay wif you."
"Awww baby... Your mommy loves you very much.")
I wait to see if we could ever get together and talk like we used to.
We get together and we talk. Like we used to.
But you don't want to.
Take my hand
The Feel Again (Stay)
I see the sun go down on the river
I feel the wind blow out, would've stayed to gray
I feel the air around you, it's kinda closing in
Do you feel it fall, or do you feel at all, I can!
I see the world keep moving as I stumble
They seem to move much faster than me
And while I sit in my four cornered room dividing hearts for a little girl
Well I can't be anything but who I am
I'm asking you one question.
Do you want me to sign away the rights as a father to my daughter
So that you'll leave me alone and let Blue be happy?
She's so happy.
I wish you knew that.
She is happy, I know but...
The Follow Through
It leaves you hollow
Just to settle the score
A war, you know the one you built it up
It's real defining
Knocks at your door
The Getting Over It Part
I tried and tried
I tried so many things that wouldn't take
Like stop the leak prevent the floods some say
But nothing helped at all
And your not listening
To what I say
You waste the time with memories made
Communication has not made it's way
To your agenda for today
Or any other day
Let's get it straight
Let's get it straight from the top
You'll be getting with your usual main ingredient
You're good at talking
When you say it
Are you meaning it?
I don't wanna give you my heart
If you're not completing it
I'm blown away at how your family
The Money Tree
I'm standing on an open world
I've got to try so hard for myself
Now including the ones that I love
I call my family
It's not hard when your focus is a beautiful girl
A brand new baby. She's a baby girl
And yeah, she's a cutie like her mommy
Uh, yes, yeah, she looks like her mommy
The Worry List
I'm tired, twisted, barely breathing, buried in the dark
Don't be concerned, it's just the power of a breaking heart.
How good am I hiding it?
Look, I've got some bad intentions.
Guilty as fucking charged.
Still standing stable, more than able 'cause I know who you are.
I know the birthdays, anniversaries, all the first days I missed.
I regret them all.
But now I know this:
You Waited Too Long
("If you think your marriage is so great, why the fuck are you turning to
Other people's wives for comfort?"
"Can... can I tell you what, what was going on here?"
"Yeah, please do.")
Did he really get to take you home?
I'm surprised that you chose him.
Surprised that I'm not in a halfway home.
I'm not surprised I never saw you alone.
When they brought me home.
