You're harder than physics after a round of beer
I just want to know if we have an equation here
We've sung under the moonlight with our arms entwined
But you still confuse me with your cryptic lines.

So tell me are we having a connection
Did I catch one, was it only a distortion
Are you playing with rockets on your rooftop
Where are we between a touch down and a lift off.

So tell me are we having a connection
Is it real or am I having a delusion
When you kill me with the throttle of your silence
Is it art or just a master stroke of science?

You've pulled me up from forces of the deep
Cradled me on ocean waves till I fell asleep
But every time you light a fire, you play me cool
Won't you cut this schism with your push and pull.

There's rhythm in your eyes when I pull you close
A secret pulse in your kiss that your lips expose
If I jump the cliff, will you follow my stride
Swim with me and crash into the other side.

Connection

Dreams are as real as we want them to be
With my tiny hand I plucked a big one wistfully
No matter what the universe may have to say to me
I am free

The wind and the rain can consume any flame
Any minute, any hour you'll never be the same
Well, I'm not here to play it safe, I know it's not a game
As they say

Thoughts roam around in my head noisily
Challenged by conventions, every code they wrote for me
And if there's one I'd gladly break in this society
It's not wanting you.

Everyday I soar across a sky with no wings
They look at me like scientists
But they'll never understand
I've summoned all the angels for what could escape my hands
Humanly.

Waves on the shore, it's the crashing I adore
Suddenly I realize it hasn't been before
People and their faces
Give their judgment away
Out they stay

Life will be lived how I think it should be
Under every breath I pray He send you to me
But when I try to control the world, it starts controlling me
So I’ll let it be, I'll be free.

Waiting Game

You see I know a girl we
She would love like an ocean swirl
But every evening, she’d sail on tears
Even fate couldn't stop 'em here.

Her heart sat on her sleeve
In the cold, it wouldn't leave
Beware now, the torrents warned
First it would drown, now it’s reborn.

One lifetime, she scraped the sky
Next, she dug six feet to die
A champion laying her cause to rest
Defeats them by not joining the contest

She'd been squandering time and tide
Yonder hills and fools and pride
Where hopes were rung like church bell tolls
And dropped like water from the Niagara falls

Then for some reason she couldn’t find
The earth cracked open like a brand new, a brand new smile, oh wow
That's the girl that I know now.

A frozen cloud of dust as ice
Rained down her overcast eyes
In a wave, the coast was clear
Her boat has arrived, she's ready to steer.

One lifetime, she scraped the sky
Next, she dug six feet to die
A general with no stars on her chest
Skipped the war and won instead.

I Know a Girl

She walks by night and picks the stars from her sky
And everyday she'd run a mile of dreams
Her hopeful heart waits patiently with a sigh

For how long she's been waiting
For a lifetime so it seems
Does her Romeo exist
A pale amber rose on her lips

She's a dry, entangled leaf
She's a beach sans the breeze
If the world would only turn a side now
Make or break a stride now
She's a full-ride Romeo's paradise

There was a time she thought she'd found it
All along with a fool
And when she 'woke she thought she'd lost it
But she'd only started finding and we know...

She's a virgin of the fire
Let her cry for she's alright
If the rain could only stop a little
Let her burn past middle 
She's a full-house Romeo's paradise

Each time the streams overflowed with her tears
And the blossoms withered on her smile
That's when she would hover up the hollow of those years
But her pain is now  only a feather

Touching ground on windy days
Throw or blow it as she may
The earth has moved with color in her ways.

In a save surrender ode
She'll be happy when she's old
But the years are graying on her head now
Folding ‘cross her face now
Still she waits to be her Romeo's paradise...
She waits for Romeo's paradise.

Romeo's Paradise

Love, such a wonderful feeling
Love, such a powerful feeling
Love, it's the only feeling
I get when you're around me, baby

Love, it's so nice when you chase me
Love, feels so right when you change me
Love, it's the sweetest thing 
When you're embracing me...

Love, what do I do without you
I've gotten so used to 
Feeling high above each time
I dream that there's a chance
You could be mine...

I'm always feeling you
More and more each day
I don't think I'll ever 
Get enough of loving you...

Love, an exceptional feeling
Love, it's a sensual feeling
Love, think I'm getting the feeling
That you are kind of feeling it, too...

Love, where do I go without you
What have you done to me
Cuz all I ever think of is you 
And I wouldn't ever want
To let you go... 

Love

They said we had angels
And they made us float on clouds
Why am I lying here face down
With you gone away
I thought that angels made people like you stay.

They said we had angels
And they colored our summers green
Why has the sun stopped shining here
Where our summer used to be
I thought that angels made a love like ours run free...

If we had angels
Why are they so mysterious
One day , they gave me the world
And now they steal you you away...

I believed them
Oh, I believed them
If we had angels
They said we had angels
Let there be angels
Let them bring you back to me.

They said we had angels
And they made us stand our ground
Well, I did but you were busy
Holding someone else's hand
I thought that angels made people like you
Hold the sand...

If there are angels
Why do they have to make it so hard
If there are angels
Maybe i'm just an old forgotten ward...

They Said We Had Angels

These pictures hiding in a vault
Are just like a movie of our youth
So many reels that tell it all
Even between the lines and the truths.
Now the movie has stopped showing but
I'd die to watch it again with you
With you, what I had was true.

Like an angel true to your part
You chased every demon that I kept
You broke all of the rules while I broke your heart
But did I tell you that I wept
Cuz when I didn't run away with you
I knew I that I really wanted to
For you, you were all that’s true.

All of the times that we crossed paths
I found in your eyes the love I lost
And all of those times I broke away
I died in his arms wishing that you’d stay
And I won't pretend I'm innocent
But baby, I'd break to make you whole again
Yes, I would
Baby, that’s the truth.

These pictures hiding in a vault
They play like a movie of our youth
So many reels to tell it all
Even between the lines and the truths.
Now the movie has stopped showing but
But I'd die to roll a brand new reel with you.
What we have is true.

True

There's a wind when I'm lying in the dark
There's a beat of a heart that wouldn't start
On a night when the flowers grow in blue
There's a dream I could only wish was true

But I make it to the morn
With you
And I know that otherwise
I won’t do

There's a sky that is burning far too bright
There's a hope and it’s hanging out to dry
In the shade, a man’s shackled to a tree
Left to die but then thunder cracked him free

And it’s slowly raining down il8
On me
There is no one else but you
That I need
