Vertical Horizon – You’re a god

Posted in Vertical Horizon on August 12, 2009 by kJouL

I’ve got to be honest,

I think you know,

We’re covered in lies and that’s okay,

But there’s somewhere beyond this,

I know, but I hope I can find the words to say,

Never again, no,

No never again.

‘Cause you’re a god,

And I am not,

And I just thought that you would know,

You’re a god,

And I am not,

And I just thought I’d let you go.

Though I’ve been unable,

To put you down,

I’m still learnin’ things I ought to know by now.

It’s under the table, so…

I need somethin’ more to show, somehow.

Never again, nooo,

No never again.

‘Cause you’re a god,

And I am not,

And I just thought that you would know,

You’re a god,

And I am not,

And I just thought I’d let you go.

I’ve got to be honest,

And I am not,

And I just thought that you would know,

You’re a god,

And I am not,

And I just thought I’d let you go.

You’re a god,

Oh and I am not,

I just thought that you would know,

You’re a god,

Oh, and I am not,

I just thought I’d let you go.

Vertical Horizon – Everything you want

Posted in Vertical Horizon on August 12, 2009 by kJouL

Somewhere there’s speaking, it’s already coming in

Oh and it’s rising in the back of your mind

You never could get it unless you were fed it

Now you’re here, and you don’t know why

But under skinned knees and the skid marks

Past the places where you used to learn

You howl and listen, listen and wait for

The echoes of angels who won’t return

He’s everything you want, he’s everything you need

He’s everything inside of you that you wish you could be

He says all the right things at exactly the right time

But he means nothing to you, and you don’t know why

You’re waiting for someone to put you together

You’re waiting for someone to push you away

There’s always another wound to discover

There’s always something more you wish he’d say

He’s everything you want, he’s everything you need

He’s everything inside of you that you wish you could be

He says all the right things at exactly the right time

But he means nothing to you, and you don’t know why

But you’ll just sit tight and watch it unwind

It’s only what you’re asking for

And you’ll be just fine with all of your time

It’s only what you’re waiting for

Out of the island and into the highway

Past the places where you might have turned

You never did notice, but you still hide away

Anger of angels who won’t return

He’s everything you want, he’s everything you need

He’s everything inside of you that you wish you could be

He says all the right things at exactly the right time

But he means nothing to you, and you don’t know why

I am everything you want, I am everything you need

I am everything inside of you that you wish you could be

I say all the right things at exactly the right time

But I mean nothing to you, and I don’t know why

And I don’t know why

Why, why

I don’t know

Vertical Horizon – Best I ever had

Posted in Vertical Horizon on August 12, 2009 by kJouL

So you sailed away

Into a grey sky morning

Now I’m here to stay

Love can be so boring

Nothing’s quite the same now

I just say your name now

Chorus:

But it’s not so bad

You’re only the best I ever had

You don’t want me back

You’re just the best I ever had

So you stole my world

Now I’m just a phony

Remembering the girl

Leaves me down and lonely

Send it in a letter

Make yourself feel better

Chorus:

But it’s not so bad

You’re only the best I ever had

You don’t need me back

You’re just the best I ever had

And it may take some time to

Patch me up inside

But I can’t take it so I

run away and hide

And I may find in time that

You were always right

You’re always right

So you sailed away

Into a grey sky morning

Now I’m here to stay

Love can be so boring

What was it you wanted?

Could it be I’m haunted?

Chorus:

But it’s not so bad

You’re only the best I ever had

I don’t want you back

You’re just the best I ever had

The best I ever had

Best I ever…
