Is the war over, sir please tell me
Is the war over, sir please tell me
I’m a fighter, it cost me everything

From Montana to New York City
It follows me like a dog
In the paper on the telle with Louise

All the good, bad, and mistreated
Will have their day, won’t they?

She’s on her way back to Montana,couldn’t take the fire

Through the air waves on Jimmy’s radio
It thickens like London fog
Ov’r the bridge through the city goes Louise

Heaven knows
It won’t be over, til Kingdom come

Some things, are best remembered
In retro-spect
Please tell her, I’m sorry, go on Louise

King of England

View music/video on Vimeo.

King of England you’ll return someday
And I like to think you’ll, return and stay
There are some things you cannot change
And I like them to stay that way

King of England you’re nothing like your brother John
And I stole from him, I’m bloody condemned
There are some things you cannot change
And I like them to stay that way

Maid Marian, if we had seven sons
Who ruled the world
Then maybe we could live in, harmony
I kissed your mouth, it tasted like honey

King of England you’ll return someday
And I have bent so many bloody rules
But there are some things you cannot change
And I like them to stay that way

Prince of thieves, lend me your ear
Did you stop and think the world was that cruel
Prince of thieves, the verdict is not yet out
No one ever decides to be born

Oh King of England you disguised your face
I’m always in the presence of friend and foe
But there are some things you cannot change
And I like them to stay that way

Oh Marian if we sailed the sea, Think of all the things we would be

Haven’t Lost Everything

How does it feel when I don’t pick up the phone
All your alibis are pure lies
Does anybody know, do you run home?

Are you tied up and what’s her name?
Do you really want to start again
Calling at the corner of 5th and king

I’m not a loser, I haven’t lost, everything
I’ll chase you down and over, the state-line
Don’t want to lose her tonight

What we had was no joke
A man and a woman behind mirrors and smoke
Yea we had it bad, yea, we were young

I’m not a loser, I haven’t lost, everything
Shot me down, like a plane, with a loaded bomb
I’m not a loser cause I haven’t lost, everything
Shot me down, like a plane, with a loaded bomb
We’re going down in flames

I know full well
I’ve been forewarned
These things turn ugly
But I’m in this for real

Try

Sing like you mean it, hey brother, sister
It don’t mean a thing if you can’t explain it
Hey mother, father

Hold on, hold on tight to memories
Stuck in time, no rhyme, no reason
Love plays for keeps, there are no losers but me

Love like you need it, be free to break into a 1,000 pieces
Did you lose, lose that feeling?
Are we oceans apart?

Did I, Did I say all you heard
Stuck in a trance, Five senses to tell you I’m a better man

It’s not enough to survive as embers
They say they say that love is blind blind blind
I know I know you feel less than mine mine
You never know unless ya try try

When I was young I was bold and I did as I was told
To the bitter end I’ll go love ain’t no potion but I get to go
I get to go with you

Goodnight baby, it’s a good good night

Beautiful World

View video/music on Vimeo.

Wisdom has she lost all her children?
For one taste of sweet ecstasy

From the cradle to the gutter
From the mother to the heartbreak
Beautiful world? Beautiful world?

Did you think you were immune?
Chasing ladders and chariots
Beautiful world! Beautiful world!

Say a prayer; make it last for friend and foe
Raise your glass let’s make a toast “goodwill toward men”
When it’s us versus them ain’t nobody gonna win
Cutthroats and liars, brave this crusade kind of world

Carry me, I hope for so much better
Despite the years of skewed reality
O tomorrow can’t change most things
Embrace the purity of Your control
Falter I may, You’ve already won

Say a prayer; make it last for friend and foe
Raise your voice, riot in the street, we’ll call it “love”
When it’s us versus them ain’t nobody gonna win
Cutthroats and liars, thrown down your stones

From the cradle to the gutter
From the mother to the heartbreak
Beautiful world!

Can’t Be Young Forever

View video/music on Vimeo.

All the voids you fill, All the hurts you kill
When you were young, O, when you were young

O take me back to yesterday
In your crawls I never got away
Do you remember setting fire, setting fire to our bridges

So please stick to your story
So tired of punching the clock
The truth is you can’t change this
Can’t we play by the rules
Are we things we’re not as
When we were young, when we were young

Add up the empty thrills, dismount your deepest fears
O we can’t be young forever, O we can’t be young forever
Time’s not on our side, heaven is real
Love is not a gamble or something you borrow

Come on please stick to your story
So tired of punching the clock
The truth is you can’t change this
Can’t we play by the rules
Are we things we’re not as
When we were young, when we were young

So sing your way to freedom as when you were young

Adeline

View video/music on Vimeo.

Pick up the pieces of this life
Try your best but make no promises
Complete me
On the streets where you live you feel so lonely
You feel so alone

Climb Adeline
So climb Adeline
What they’re selling you will only slow you down
So climb Adeline

Pick up the pieces of your wings
Try your best and make your promises
Come find me
The argument is settled
The judge has overruled
Their power isn’t endless
And I remember you

So fly Adeline
What they’re selling will only hold you down
So fly Adeline…

So Fly Adeline,
Fly Adeline
Now you’re worlds away and now you’re satisfied
Fly Adeline
