Friday Song Lyrics

It's been much too long...

1) On My Way by O.A.R.

Don't fear the morning
It's okay, it's okay
Hurt weighs heavy
It's okay, it's okay
When your body's cold and shaking
I'll steer you Darlin', steer you
When your body's old and aging
I'll heal you Darlin', heal you

Your soul lights the day
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
When you're so filled with pain
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
And Baby, Baby it's just me

Look out the window
Past the Pines
Through the rain
Oh skies will open, let sun shine
On your face
When your mind is old and fading
I'll heal you Darlin', heal you

Your soul lights the day
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
When you're so filled with pain
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
And Baby, Baby it's just me

In a matter of, in a matter of days, we'll find love
In a matter of, in a matter of days, we'll find love
And Baby, Baby that's just love
And Baby, Baby it's just me

Your soul lights the day
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
When you're so filled with pain
I'm on my way, I'm on my way
And its gonna get easier on you
And its gonna get easier on you
And its gonna get easier on you
Now it's got to get easier on your soul
Soul, soul, soul
Your soul lights the way, lights the way
I'm on my way
And Baby, Baby it's just me


2) Set Down Your Glass by Snow Patrol

Just close your eyes
And count to five
Let's craft the only thing we know into surprise
Set down your glass

I painted this
To look like you and me forever as we're now
And I'm shaking and I'm still
When you're eyes meet mine all the simple skills
Like to tell you all I want, is love

You say I'm cold
I'm just not the same
As I was a year ago
And each minute since then

My jumper tears
As we take off
You say you'll sew me good as new
And I know you will

And I'm shaking and I'm still
When your eyes meet mine all the simple skills
Like to tell you all I want, is love

And I'm shaking and I'm still
When your eyes meet mine all the simple skills
Like to tell you all I want, is love

3) Come on Get Higher by Matt Nathanson

I miss the sound of your voice
And I miss the rush of your skin
And I miss the still of the silence
As you breathe out and I breathe in
If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what's next
I'd make you believe
I'd make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the sound of your voice
The loudest thing in my head
And I ache to remember
All the violent, sweet, perfect words that you said
If I could walk on water
If I could tell you what's next
I'd make you believe
I'd make you forget

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the pull of your heart
I taste the sparks on your tongue
I see angels and devils and God, when you come on
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Singin' sha la la la
Singin' sha la la la la

So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love
So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me, drown me in love

So wrong, So wrong
So wrong, So right
So come on, get higher
So come on and get higher
'Cause everything works, love
Everything works in your arms

4) I'm Yours by Jason Mraz

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, now I'm trying to get back

Before the cool done run out, I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love

Listen to the music of the moment people, dance and sing
We're just one big family
And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm sure
There's no need to complicate, our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

D-d-do do you, but do you, d-d-do
But do you want to come on
Scooch on over closer dear
And I will nibble your ear

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Come on and open up your mind and see like me
(I won't hesitate)
Open up your plans and damn you're free
(No more, no more)
Look into your heart and you'll find that the sky is yours
(It cannot wait, I'm sure)

So please don't, there's no need
(There's no need to complicate)
There's no need to complicate
(Our time is short)
'Cause our time is short
(This is our fate)
This is, this is, this is our fate
I'm yours

Oh, I'm yours
Oh, I'm yours
Oh, whoa, baby you believe I'm yours
You best believe, best believe I'm yours

I just listened to I'm Yours on the way back home - it's a CD you made for me in August, and I have this to add:

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
Once you go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
