The Essentials | Lyrics

With A Little Love
(Hess / Lesperance)

I lie awake all through the night
And think of you to break the morning light
Thoughts in my head, gotta make you understand
That love is what you need, won't let you slip through my hands

You said you'd never leave, and I guess you could be wrong
I won't have anyone to blame,I won't have anyone at all

With a little love, I keep holding onto you forever
With a little love, we can see it through together
I try to wait and just hold on
There's so many things I believe could go wrong

So I close my eyes, and pray for the day
That we can take all the lies and just throw them away

You said you'd never leave, and I guess you could be wrong
I won't have anyone to blame, I won't have anyone at all

Honestly
(Hess)

I stand before you accused of many crimes
But I want to believe that love can still survive
You don't have to say it, I don't have to read your mind
To know that emptiness has finally arrived
How was I to know right from wrong
Words were hardly spoken, so where did I go wrong

Tell me honestly, if you're still loving me
Looking into my eyes honestly
Words have more meaning, if they're said at certain times
I need you now so I can feel alive
How would you know if you won't give me some time
To see if everything could work you'll be mine
I'll be lost forever or someday I may find
The words that I've been searching for or just some peace of mind

Chorus

All the nights I sit and wonder there must be more life
I'm sure that days and years go by while
I am living with, living with a lonely feeling

Love Reaction
(Hess / Lesperance / Coburn)

A physical attraction I could feel across the room
Inspiration, do I owe it all to you
Got no explanation why I feel the way I do
Ain't no need for complaining, cause I know that I've found heaven in you

I got a love, got a love reaction
You and me are fire meets ice
Got a love, got a love reaction
Burning in, burning in my heart

Did somebody sell you that smile upon your face
It's picture perfect, could it ever fall from grace
You got no hesitation for the way your body moves
Ain't no need for complaining, cause I know that I've found heaven in you

Chorus

I tried running away, but it always ends up leading me back

Chorus

Slowly Slipping Away
(Hess / Ribler)

There's a burning question in my heart
But I see the answer in your eyes
An uneasy feeling without you
There's only peace by your side

Our hearts survived the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive
I feel it in the morning
I feel it all through the day
I feel the heartache, slowly slipping away, slowly slipping away
We've had our share of confusion
We've been let down so many times before
But what I've found is a real love
No need to search anymore, no
Somehow we've weathered the storms in our lives
This love has never been a lie
We will survive the cold world outside
Somehow this love keeps us alive

Something To Say
(Hess / Lesperance)

Yesterday I had it all worked out to a 'T'
But now something's wrong between you and me
I was wrong, so wrong
To think that I would stay
Seasons come and seasons go
And today is another day

I wanna say now's the time
To go our separate ways
I don't know I might be wrong
Could we find the strength to say
That our love, our love's seen some better days
And who's to say if I had the chance
That I'd make the choice to say
If you ever had something that you wanted to say
You better start talking before I go away
I wish that I could say I've been feeling okay
That I'll be bringing on the better days
But I wouldn't feel right
Knowing I was lying to you

Am I wasting all my time, will we try to make a mends
I try to read between the lines
But all I see is the end

No Justice
(Hess / Lesperance)

Freedom burns forever in the holy sun
It leads us into a battle that's never won

Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

Justice in the world
No justice in the world
You feed the fire when you say it's all over
No justice in the world
When you realize that the devil's got your number

It's your decision
To walk the mile when the road is long
It's like religion wasting our lives on a
Worthless cause
Whatever I take
Or whatever I give
Doesn't seem to matter anymore
When there's no

When will freedom shine for us
No, it ain't over, no

Change Comes Around
(Hess / Lesperance)

This is my rollercoaster
I ride it everyday
It's a mirror of my emotions
I want to wish it all away

News flash of the century
Story of the day
If you wanna see mountains crumble
You can watch it any day

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta find me a better way

Whenever the light is gone
You're not the only one
Breaking down
When all your faith is gone
Don't let it pull you under
Change comes around
Sail on to higher ground
Hiding from the thunder
I think we'd all agree
That facing fear don't help us
Escape reality

When I come down
It's hard to get it straight
I gotta live with what I say

Jealousy
(Hess / Lesperance)

How could you be so cruel
Is how the conversation starts
You say I'm breaking all the rules
Not to mention your heart

You say I promised you my love
Well, I got no reason to lie
Cause I forsee a change
And there's no mistake
If you wanna know the reason why

It's your jealousy
And I don't understand it at all
You've redefined jealousy
And wear it out on your sleeve not your heart
Now, I've got nothing left to say
You know I don't want no part
Of a mind that's so twisted
And views a million miles apart

You say I promised you my love
Should I give it one more try
I still forsee a change
There's no mistake
If you wanna know the reason why

If There Was A Time
(Hess / Lesperance)

I try to talk to the clouds
But they spill out the rain
Now I'm truly convinced
They've got nothing to say

Will I ever learn
Is there something wrong with my brain
Now the weeds are on fire
And they’re burning away

Last time I checked I'm at 34 sins
Another won't matter 'cause I'm never gonna win
Hoping now I'm on a road that I can change
Cause I'll change
If there was a time when I needed to pray
That the cold wind blows away
If there was a time when I needed a place
To wipe the guilt free from my face
If there was a time for mercy in my life
It's right now

If I were down on my knees
Would it all be in vain
But for now I'll believe
Until there's some better way
And my pages turn
Til I've got nothing to say
Now the days with no dawn
Are coming of age

Last time I checked I'm at 35 sins
Another won't matter 'cause I'm never gonna win
Holding onto a ghost that I can't save

Had Enough
(Hess / Lesperance)

Love's a long and twisted road
And I know I've walked it before
It takes me nowhere
Almost every time
And leaves me wondering
When will I find
A true love in perfect harmony
When will I learn
That I've got to believe

On my own now
I've come to learn
The times of heartache
From bridges burned
Now there's still one thing
I want to know
Will I find peace of mind
If I'm alone
And on it goes
I'm going around and around
God only knows
If I'm ever coming down

When I've had enough
The world kicks me around
One more time I've had enough
When I've had enough
I'll let out all the feelings
I can't hide
I've had enough for awhile

Voice Of Reason
(Hess / Lesperance)

I've been irreverent to the power controlling me
It's like a force coming down hard on me
When in a war with fate you learn to lose
Give me the sun the clouds are on the way
In on a guilt trip for a holiday
Coming apart the pieces all need glue

It's a shame the voice of reason faintly falls astray
Insane with all the seasons seeing shades of fall in May

Now all I can do is lay on the bed I've made
If I'm reborn or given another way
I would resolve and take what I'm given
Or I'll never find the forest for the trees
I'd only reach out for the burning leaves
Without a cause or the faith to pull me through

It was heaven that filled the grave
You swallow the pill and pray
It's coming around today
Seeing shades of fall in May

Blue
(Hess / Lesperance)

Now that I've swam into waters I never wanted to
I'm in hook, line and sinker
I want another life that comes with a guarantee
And batteries so I have strength for you

Since you came undone
A despondent fool
Swimming with chains in the river
A drowning soul
The queen of lies turns blue

Now I've figured out your conscience has never been awakened
Asleep your days of a holy child
Alive are your venomous teeth biting in me
So I've paved the road to ruin

Since you came undone
A despondent fool
Swimming in chains in the river
A drowning whore
The queen of lies turns blue
