Them Days 03:48
Some days I’m not brave Sometimes I don’t wanna leave these gates Those are the times I don’t wanna explain I just wanna pack my things and run away When did we start falling? How did we get here? When did the boy inside disappear? Them days Everybody’s got them Them days Them days Everybody’s got them Them days Some days got me feeling hopeless Like I'm never gonna heal from this pain Sometimes it all falls endless yeah Got me on my knees saying a prayer Counting all my losses Shedding all these tears Trying to find my strength to fight these fears Them days Everybody’s got them Them days Them days Everybody’s got them Them days

My father died a poor man But so rich in love Momma aint been the same Since daddies been gone I know things move in cycles It’s the way of the world, around me I wish he would back so I could believe. I know that Rome wasn’t built in a day Just like I know , loves not easy to explain It’s in all of us The joy and the pain It’s in all of us To bring it back again The tyranny of my youth is what scared me away It put me in a world Where I found no escape Baby sister said, it’s time for a change And big brother told me To get on my knees and pray I know that I, I can’t count the stars in the sky Just like I don’t know when my days will come to an end It’s in all of us The joy and the pain It’s in all of us To bring it back again

By The end of it all, its all just a memory like a shadow floating off as the shape of sunlight changes, so does love. So what am I gonna take with me? What am I gonna remember? Were you the one?

Is it too soon to share with you I just feel compelled to speak the truth ohhhh You capture me into the night Always ingrained in my mind I’d shut my heart, closed both my eyes I never thought i’d see this side Looking to you for the light Trying so hard to decide Could you be oh could you be Could you be oh could you be The love of my life The love of my life In my thoughts you occupy An empty space I can’t define Ohhh I’m so in over my head Shook by the words you just said I feel it now I’m here with you Under this spell I see the truth That we fit together so nice Could you be the love of my life Could you be oh could you be Could you be oh could you be The love of my life The love of my life If we let this slip away Let the spark grow dim and fade And if we wait and never say Will it all just dissipate

Hanging On 02:20
Feels like I been hanging on For much to long Now i’m letting go Seems like to much went on Now I'm at the end of my rope Now you can’t keep me hanging on Now you can’t keep me hanging on No you can’t keep me hanging on No you can’t keep me hanging on I’m moving out taking all my things You can fill this house with your emptiness In the end i saw what it was You get know water love I can’t let you back in Now you can’t keep me hanging on Now you can’t keep me hanging on No you can’t keep me hanging on No you can’t keep me hanging on I know what your thinking I know what your feeling There’s no room for reason It ain’t hunting season Woman get behind me I can’t break it to you lightly You’re no longer blinding Now I'm looking at the right thing Now you can’t keep me hanging on Now you can’t keep me hanging on No you can’t keep me hanging on No you can’t keep me hanging on

Let me tell you something Something mama told to me Just because we don't see no chains, doesn't mean we're free Years of feast or famine Hang beneath the trees Some say they don’t see no chains, doesn’t mean they’re free doesn’t mean we’re free, no it doesn’t mean we’re free just because we don’t see no chains doesn’t mean we’re free Blues will come a knockin’ Knockin’ hard upon your door Better hope that you ain’t home, Or you won’t come home no more Locked me up in winter Stayed there right until the fall Only crime’s the skin I’m in My back against the wall doesn’t mean we’re free, no it doesn’t mean we’re free just because we don’t see no chains doesn’t mean we’re free
