Down In It | Lyrics

What Are You Waiting For
(Lesperance)

You gave a lot
I gave a lot and we thought
We had something that was here to stay
We did a lot but
We changed a lot and now you want
Nothing more than me to be erased

Say you don't want a love that's haunted
So maybe I'm not what you wanted
Well let me clear the way

Baby what are you waiting for
Say you're leaving
What are you waiting for

You said a lot that
Hurt a lot but then it stopped
It was time and I could take no more
All the things you said and
The way they read left me with no doubts
You were gone you let me know for sure

Say you don't want a love that's haunted
So maybe I'm not what you wanted
Well let me get the door

Baby what are you waiting for
Say you're leaving what are you waiting for
Baby don't make me wait any more
Just say you're leaving
What are you waiting for

You say it's now or never
I've taken all I can take
And if you're gone then
Don't drag it forever
Don't let me get in your way
Baby what are you waiting for

Life Goes On  (Acoustic)
(Lesperance)

Four in the morning
And I lay in my bed
Just thinking about things I'll never change
And some things that I wish I'd never said
But oh well I guess we all lay awake

Life goes on
And the time ticks away if we let it
Ignore the days and they just slip away
And then we regret it

Take the love that you find
Keep it near to your heart
Keep it real in your mind
Cause oh the time can fly
And it all starts to fade
With every day

Automatic
(Lesperance)

It's making me mad I think I should go
I'm making everyone uncomfortable
I heard what they said but how would they know
Cause lately I've been hangin'
Out in the sun with the living and breathing
Sometimes life is surreal

I know where my mind has gone
And so I'm livin' on automatic
At least I'm hangin' on
Just taking me the long way around

I think it's a sin there's nowhere to go
Then again anything is possible
You made it quite clear it's better I know
And if you need me I'll be
Out in the sun with the living and breathing
Sometimes life is surreal

Why does every day gotta feel like a monday
You keep pushing when you're getting nowhere
I'm still losing but at least I'm trying

I'm still trying

Down In It
(Lesperance)

Till all is said and done you never know
I never thought that I would be
The first to go
But lonely words can't make me stay
And no the time won't change us
Cause we've already changed

And I'm so far down in it
That I can't see the light
And I'm finding it a little hard to breath
When these walls are closing in
And I don't think I'm here I want to be

Now I don't want you taking all the blame
You always thought That I would change
And I thought you would stay the same
We know it can't go on this way
I'll go tomorrow
And when tomorrow is today

Say You Will
(Lesperance)

The sun may come tomorrow
The sky may rain
But when we leave this sorrow
Our hope remains

And oh it don't matter
Cause I know I'll see you in the end

Say you will
Say you'll be waiting
When the world's at an end
I'll see you again
Say you will
Say you'll be waiting for me
Say you will wait for me

We pray like true believers
To save our souls
When no one's even listening
For all we know

Nameless
(Lesperance)

Do you feel like live in a movie is it like what you saw on TV you go to all the right places with all
The right people and it's better than living with me
On your birthday they throw you a party and it feels like your own hall of fame nad your make-up's all right
So they love you tonight
But in the morning you still look the same to me

I remember walking away thinking oh no here we go again
Oh yeah I remember your face and I swear I still take it along but for now my dear
I think that you will remain nameless cause there's no point offending the innocent

I remember that day in the summer I think we met on the fourth of july and I still hear the rain as you got
On the plane I can still see the tears welling up in your eyes ain't it funny how things seem to change
Dear? I'm not the man that you thought I would be and so you wait up all night to continue a fight it's
Amazing I'm sane with the grief that you caused me
And I remember walking away thinking oh no here she goes again

Boy Without A Clue
(Lesperance / Dove)

Here it comes again
Black coffee cigarettes and faith
And the paper came too late
Hung out and dried again
An unshaven boy who's out of place

It's always inside of your head
I'm watching the world around me change
Yes it's always inside of your head
When I'd rather stay the same

There's really nothing I would rather do
Then sit on the edge of the world
Just a boy without a clue
And lay my feet on the Earth
My hands upon the Moon
And I'll stay like this forever
If I choose

Calling god again
Message says he won't be home till late
It seems he always makes me wait
Curled up and numb to pain

I don't wanna go through that again

Skeleton Tree
(Lesperance / Dove)

Skeleton tree surrender your leaves
The summer has come and gone
It's so like the breeze just leading me here
To somehow linger on

And now I sit here praying for a helping hand
Like an alien just waiting for my ship to land

Sleeping at the end of a century
Cause new years day it's just another day
No doubt that it's the place to be
At least it's OK with me

Skeleton tree will you remember me
When all I am is fading
Like blue gone to gray I'm sorry to say
But color's overrated

And if I close my eyes I might jump disappear

Anywhere is fine just get me out of here

No Sign Of Life
(Lesperance / Tulk)

Ain't it funny how things turn out
You think you're over it and then
You're way back when
All that you could see was uncertainty
Like a lonely wind that blows
And then it goes

Now I find even time
Just seems to dissapear
When you're not here

There's no sign of life
There's no sign of life
There's no saving us from saying goodbye
Ans I thought that we would survive
But there's no sign of life

Ain't it funny how things are said
Like you'll never be alone
And your heart will have a home
Does everything we say
Just fade away
Are they ever really true
I thought I knew

And I can't leave
But I can breathe
No I can't make a sound
Now you're not around

There's no hope there's no way
There's no rescue coming today
There's no time for our dreams
There's no you and me
Not as far as I can see

Upside Down
(Lesperance / Dove)

Welcome to the fall
And if you're scared
You know it does not show at all
We both knew that one day it would come to this
And neighter one is giving in
At least we finally agree on something

Falling into a feeling
Well I must be seeing upside down
Sinking into the ceiling
So sick of beeing upside down

So you tell me
What's the deal
We're trying so hard to believe that this was real
And when our future lies in never looking back
It's a box of crackerjacks
And we can never get to the bottom this way

Wait another day
And find a way to break this crazy chain of killing time
And we are still the same and nothing ever changed
Reciting all these tricky lines

Life Goes On
(Lesperance)

Four in the morning
And I lay in my bed
Just thinking about things I'll never change
And some things that I wish I'd never said
But oh well I guess we all lay awake

Life goes on
And the time ticks away if we let it
Ignore the days and they just slip away
And then we regret it

Take the love that you find
Keep it near to your heart
Keep it real in your mind
Cause oh the time can fly
And it all starts to fade
With every day

"The Gold downloads are my favourite part! I'd actually forgotten about the fan club t-shirt, membership card and signed photo until they actually arrived, what a pleasant surpise that was!"
