This page contains lyrics from the album
"A Different Light" by Sherwood, which was released in 2007 and consists of 8 songs.
I'm, alive, tonight
Call it the chance of a lifetime
Call it the deepest blue
Season two, a change in the storyline
Well I'm not afraid of what lies ahead
I remember something that someone said
"If you never think, you never change your mind"
So I'll be looking my best tonight if I lose the fight
Oh I've been going through a hell of a time
Making sense of all that you left behind
When I arrange it into columns and lines
I always think it's adding up, but it never does
So in the morning maybe I'll be alright
And through the day I'll prepare for the fight
With a fever on a Saturday night
Cause this is giving me the shakes and butterflies, oh
And if you don't stop running you can never breathe
For The Longest Time
Would you wait if I came running home to you?
Or if I moved right down the street a block or two?
Distance is never on my side
It only seems to make our dreams collide
And you have gone on to someone new
Would you wait if I wrote you a perfect song tonight?
To make your heart stand still and make your chest grow tight
But I'll never write a perfect line
And I don't even know why I waste my time and try, whoa
We've got nothing more from selling our clothes to the corner store
And our bags are locked so we can leave tonight for the war
Oh, I've got a nervous tick
And seeing them go got me feeling sick
Well it's do or die, no taking sides anymore
And we're not the least afraid of the coming storm
Cause we've got the sound and sunshine to keep us warm
So give up, give up, give up what you're after
I'm on a flight tonight
You see me waving at you
You're painting flowers on the ceiling
But you're looking through the leaves
And the cloudy sky to me
I'm carrying our dreams across the sky
To another city where the future lies
For you and I to be, in perfect harmony
I can almost hear that song behind your eyes
And I'll fall asleep to that distant lullaby
Never Ready To Leave
This room's been dusted
And it's covered in prints from
The month you spent with me.
And I've cataloged it,
Arranged the report with a chapter every week
And I've studied sleepless
Biting my nails and grinding my teeth.
And I think I've had it,
But that makes two of us,
Song In My Head
Oh I don't believe it,
That I could be so deceiving
And bringing you down to feel this lack of loyalty.
You were a song in my head,
The warmth of the sheets in my bed.
A story forever told, but never old,
A warm arrival never left so cold.
Don't blink, don't close your eyes,
The Best In Me
If only you could hear the beat, beat, beat
Of my beating heart
Then maybe we, we, we
Would never be apart
It's a beautiful sky on a beautiful day
But only you can stretch a smile across my face
So I'm waiting, waiting, waiting
For you to be calling, calling, calling
Cause it's another drive
