Solid Ground Lyrics

SOLID GROUND
I’m looking for a place to speak my mind
In a haze under atomic light
I just wanna, I just wanna, wanna be me
To share it, to take it, to have it all eternally

But I can’t give up and I can’t slow
I keep my feet on solid ground
Where it begins and wherever I go
And where I land nobody knows

If I could only change what’s in my head
I might decide what outta be said
Am I steady, am I strong enough to clear my head
And take what’s coming all the way to the edge

But I can’t give up and I can’t slow
I keep my feet on solid ground
Where it begins and wherever I go
And where I land nobody knows

Someone tried to tell me something
About the world around us
Try to paint a mental picture
One that will last forever
But now you take your first steps
With nothing to hold onto
What makes it seem so dangerous?
What makes it seem so different now?

Complications and frustrations have taken hold
Everyone’s a victim or so I’m told
Feeling good about the steps that I’m gonna take
Remember all the good things in their wake

But I can’t give up and I can’t slow
I keep my feet on solid ground
Where it begins and wherever I go
And where I land nobody knows

A BETTER PLACE
My dear, things ain’t really clear
All the promises you make when you whisper in my ear
Well, I stumble and I’m running out of luck
When I ask her for an answer she says, “my heart’s in flux.”

Wipe the mascara from your face
Oh God there’s gotta be a better place

Now you wonder and you ask yourself
Are you happy with your lot or with your circumstance?

Sit around and think about the past
The things you left behind, the things that didn’t last
The things that didn’t last

She said, “I’m feeling lonesome like I always am.”
Oh, let me take your hand

My dear, things ain’t really clear
All the promises you make when you whisper in my ear

Once outside you still hang on
Too scared to let go, too scared to live alone

Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
Too scared to live alone
To live alone

BREAKDOWN
I gotta keep steady dealing with this heartache
Though my mind’s at rest, my heart is a mess
Can’t you see I’m trying to get through to you
Every waking moment, yeah my heart is hellbent
Though I don’t make a sound, let’s meet on common ground
Can’t you see I’m trying to get through to you

Oh no, here it comes again, Oh no, I’m gonna breakdown again
Oh no, here we go again, Oh no, we’re gonna breakdown again

I know this ain’t easy, but do you believe me?
Well I hope for the best, but should we settle for less?
Can’t you see i’m trying to get through to you

Now that you know me, I’ll show you what could be
If you give me the time, well, things will be fine
Can’t you see I’m trying to get through to you

Oh no, here it comes again, Oh no, I’m gonna breakdown again
Oh no, here we go again, Oh no, we’re gonna breakdown again
Oh no, here it comes again, Oh no, I’m gonna breakdown again
Oh no, here we go again, Oh no, we’re gonna breakdown again
I gotta keep steady

YOU’RE GONNA MISS ME SOMEDAY
If you walk, then I’ll run
You’re feeling weak, but I’m strong
When I call, you’re not these
You want more, but what is fair?
When we’re alone sometimes

When I talk, you don’t hear
You’re so far, when I’m near
We all change over time
You’re gonna miss me someday

When I bleed is when you heal
When your numb is when I feel
Every time that I walk away

When I talk, you don’t hear
You’re so far, when I’m near
We all change over time
You’re gonna miss me someday
You’re gonna miss me someday
You’re gonna miss me someday
You’re gonna miss me someday

WAIT IN VAIN
She, with a smile on her face masks the devil that is inside
She, sits alone in her room contemplating what is right
Give it some time
So much time ahead of you don’t you realize
Everything will come in time

Give it some time
Show ‘em what’s right
You wait in vain
You’re waiting outside
Everything you want is inside

Well, you better, better heed my voice
Don’t let them fool you into something you don’t want
Give it some time
Show ‘em what’s right
You got the time
Show ‘em what’s right

She, leaving for another place after such a real short time
She, making sense of her own world, making sure she’s doing right
So much time ahead of you, you don’t realize
Everything will come in time

You wait in vain
You’re waiting outside
What you need will come in time
Give it some time
Give it some time

You wait in vain
You’re waiting outside
Everything you want is inside

Give it some time
Show ‘em what’s right
You got the time
Show ‘em what’s right

ROUND AND ROUND
As time goes by, these images flash before my mind
Of someone who is here today and gone tomorrow and left to die

Until they knock me to the ground
I’m riding on a merry-go-round
And round and round until I fall
I gotta know if it’s the call
Round and round and round

If not for me than for me, there’s so very few that I’ve enlisted
The ones who stand by me with great direction and good advices

Until they knock me to the ground
I’m riding on a merry-go-round
And round and round until I fall
I gotta know if it’s the call
Round and round and round

Time slowly catches all the heartaches and failed reconstruction
If not for you than for my head
More fun than playing dead, I’m hanging by a thread

Until they knock me to the ground
I’m riding on a merry-go-round
And round and round until I fall
I gotta know if it’s the call
Round and round and round

START IT UP AGAIN
Start it up again, Start it up again
‘Cause it just might get us there, get us there on time

Start it up again, Start it up again
Tough as it may be, a fool could figure why
Start it up again

This is where it gets good, where everything pays off
And now you start to realize at such little cost

Start it up again, Start it up again
Tough as it may be, a fool could figure why
Start it up again

This is where you’ll cover me when I call out
Everything falls in line
Anytime, late at night, when you look, a starry night
Of innocence and feeling right, get us there alive

This is where it gets good, where it finally pays off
And now you start to realize at such little cost

Start it up again, Start it up again
Tough as it may be, a fool could figure why
Start it up again
Start it up again
Start it up again
Start it up again

MAKING SENSE OF NOTHING
Never found a reason to tell me why
Always vacant, wrapped in your disguise
You’re like a flower that never blooms, growing old too soon
But you never wanted to be that way again

Never found an easy way to lie
Always shrouded hide behind your eyes
You’re like a love that never grows, alone and no one knows
But you never wanted to be that way again
No, you tried so hard to rearrange everything you said
And you can’t let go, no you can’t let go, no you can’t let go

I watched you fall, I watched you try
And you’re making sense of something that just makes no sense at all

You’re like a love that never grows, alone and no one knows
But you never wanted to be that way again

Never found a reason to tell me why
Always vacant, wrapped in your disguise
You’re like a flower that never blooms, growing old too soon
But you never wanted to be that way again
No, you tried so hard to rearrange everything you said
And you tried so hard, yeah you tried so hard, but you tried so hard

I watched you fall, I watched you cry
And you’re making sense of something that just makes no sense at all
And you’re making sense of something that just makes no sense at all
And you’re making sense of something that just makes no sense at all

(ARE YOU SURE THAT) WE BELONG?
Feeling good about the times ahead of me
And I’m feeling good cause I know they’ll last
Leave behind the things you left at my door
Do I make sense of the pieces of you?

But you never stop at all
You’ve been moving too fast for too long
Are you sure that we belong?

Like a charade, dare to remember, my crooked face, hearts beating faster
Secrets in time, the truth will come out
Chilled to the bone, strong as a feather, given some time, come to an answer
Pretending that we don’t mean a word we say

But you never stop at all
You’ve been moving too fast for too long
Are you sure that we belong?

Summer comes and not too fast for everyone
The sunlight feels good when it hits my face
Think about the future plans we’ve left undone
Now, think about the words never said
But you never stop at all
You’ve been moving too fast for too long
Are you sure that we belong?

A field of dreams, froze in December, rise from the dead, up from the gutter
Secrets in time, the truth will come out
Plotting a scheme, your simple torture, given some time, come to an answer
Pretending that we don’t mean a word we say

But you never stop at all
You’ve been moving too fast for too long
Are you sure that we belong?

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?
Never figured out how hard it’s gonna be
But you tried to comfort me in my time of need
Tried to find a way and learn to figure out or just stay and work it out
Oh, just one more time

Don’t you want for me to say what’s wrong?
Don’t you want for me not to stand alone?
Don’t you want for me to be like you?
Don’t you want for me to see it through?

The things that seem so easy never are that clear
and we fight what we most fear almost every time

Don’t you want for me to say what’s wrong?
Don’t you want for me not to stand alone?
Don’t you want for me to be like you?
Don’t you want for me to see it through?

Now we find it hard to even share a word after everything we’ve learned
After all this time

Don’t you want for me to say what’s wrong?
Don’t you want for me not to stand alone?
Don’t you want for me to be like you?
Don’t you want for me to see it through?
Don’t you want for me after all this time?
Don’t you want for me to say goodbye?
Don’t you want for me to be like you too?
Don’t you want for me to follow you?
