This Ain't Over - Best Of The Avalon Years | Lyrics

Weight Of The World
(Hess / Lesperance)

Embrace the love you find
Cuz today is only time
That slips through your hands
And forever leaves you behind

Yesterday life was alright
But now a memory
Cuz today I only find
Hell surrounding me

Caught on a thinner wire
Looking down in the fire
Hanging on another day
You fall to pieces
With heaven at your feet
You're gonna find another way
The only reason
Anything should be
Everything is on the line
And the Weight of the world's on you

Everyday I'm gonna try
Until I find the key
And my faith will never die
Remembering what's real

Killing Me
(Hess / Lesperance)

Welcome to the real world
Nobody's gonna show you around
I put up my defenses
To only have you knock 'em down
So the only one I trusted
Chewed me up and spit me out

Was it the moon or the tides
Changing your ways
And now your mind

Say you don't
Then you do
Say you love me
Oh girl, you're killing me
Say you don't
Then you do
Say you love me
Although you're killing me
Life is pain and pleasure
Now I've had my share of everything
Gotta keep a better state of mind
And hope for what tomorrow brings
And so you think that you're an angel
Well then the devil must be growing wing

This Ain't Over
(Hess)

You've been in love
For your whole life
You don't look back or pretend
Never think about the end
It's gonna be a long ride
Then you think of better days
And they're coming
Coming around your way

I'm holding on
To all I can
A falling star
Wondering where to land
I don't wanna leave it alone
I'll tell you this ain't over
And although I fear the unknown
I tell you this ain't over
It ain't over at all
Only one thing on my mind
Is to keep us from the edge
Maybe come down from the ledge
Let the sun
Shine as your guide
It will light you through the grays
And be sure you find your way

If You
(Hess / Lesperance)

Don't hear a word you say
It's not because my hearing's gone
You're a fly that won't go away
I must be doing something wrong

I switched your pills
I cut your brakes
Loosened the wheels
On your roller blades
All and all it's a miracle
That you're here
If you never go away
How can I miss you

You burn everything you make
Don't think my stomach's
Strong enough
So I'm gonna give you away
Now get my favorite sweater off

I even tried to forge and fake
A first class prize
In the "gone" sweepstakes
That won you a ticket to
Nowheresville overseas

Voice Inside
(Hess / Lesperance)

When the full moon's
On the horizon
Under dark cover of the night
Is when the voice inside
Overloads

Well it feeds on your
Inner vices
When your God won't
Show you the light

And the voice inside
Haunts your mind
No running away
No hope yet you pray
To end your sorrow
You're lying there safe
Then voices awake
You're destined to overload

With your heart and mind
Still colliding
There's a torture
You keep inside

Give It To You
(Hess / Lesperance)

I face each day
Knowing there's something I can't say
Little lies never go away
They always hide to come back
One day
It's only worse then

Sometime it's gonna get back to you
That I've been doing something
Yeah something so wrong

Did I pretend nothing wrong
For so long that I believe that I really wanna be
Here with you
And all I know the dream is gone
Oh yeah you want love but I'm never gonna give it to you
I'm never gonna give it to you

The lies you ate
Are plied up on to your plate
And make this all worth nothing

Sometime it's gonna get back to you
That I've been doing something
Yeah something so wrong

Did I pretend nothing wrong
For so long that I believe that I really wanna be
Here with you
And all I know the dream is gone
Oh yeah you want love but I'm never gonna give it
To you
I'm never gonna give it to you

Higher
(Hess / Lesperance)

I can feel the bombs are blowing up behind
Got my head above the water on the rise
And I feel alone although you walk beside

Still I fear what I'll find
If I hear you say the word goodbye

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Yeah I'm shedding all the skin that has disguised me
And I'm taking all the wrongs to make them right
Said my prayers and now I put it all behind me

Still I fear what I'll find
If I hear you say the word goodbye

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Into the light
Giving me energy
Into the light
You're there for me

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Lost
(Hess / Lesperance)

No time to lose
Holding back the years
You're turn to choose
Happiness or tears
Can't find the truth
Burning down the day
All that we do
Somehow slips away

On the line
Far to blind to see

If you get lost on your own road
Wait and you'll find me
If you get lost and you don't know where to go
Just wait and you'll find me

It's all up to you
No matter what they say
Now I believe in you
That will never go away

On the line
Far to blind to see

If you get lost on your own road
Wait and you'll find me
If you get lost and you don't know where to go
Just wait and you'll find me

All the love
More than enough
So don't give up
On you and me

On the line
Far to blind to see

If you get lost on your own road
Wait and you'll find me
If you get lost and you don't know where to go
Just wait and you'll find me

Dagger
(Hess / Lesperance)

Well you think that you know someone
After all this time but you don't
And there's no worse feeling
Not knowing if they have your back
Or your throat
Now you couldn't fake it
Pretending you were the one
Now there's no mistaking
The damage that you've done
Like a dagger in my heart
I feel my pain alone
Like a dagger in my heart
I feel nohing at all
Now you've shown your colors
And shred your skin
And I don't like what I see
And you've let the world know
Just who you are
And good is something that you can't be
Now your world is shakin'
Cause everything has come undone
As the rules are changing
And there's damage to be done

Afterglow
(Hess / Lesperance)

A glow remains when a light is disappearing
If it's our fate then we better seal it
Right or wrong
I don't wanna deal with it or feel this
Time is up
We'll just move on and let it be
There were some highs and some lows
We're living in the afterglow
Since I burned out on you
The gloves are off and I don't even feel it
Calm and numb was never so appealing
What went wrong now I don't even see it
I regret hanging on to a ghost already gone
And maybe there will be days when I don't think I'll make it through
And maybe there will be phases I don't know I'm going through
And I don't feel
Calm and numb was never so appealing

Don't Come Easy
(Hess / Lesperance)

Tired of meeting halfway to nowhere
I'm tired of everything I see
Waste away you feel like exploding
Can't find the forest for the trees
Now I hold the key
When all is revealed
Don't you know letting go don't come easy
Don't you know letting go is part of life
Don't you know letting go don't come easy
So we hold onto lies
Your advice it all means nothing
So easy to give
And so hard to take
Words so sweet you won't mind eating them
Throwing dirt losing ground again

Human Nature
(Hess / Lesperance)

Souls have lost their way
Looking to hide a dark side
Every time we look inside
The lines are drawn in vein
In your mind
It's alright
We're all the same
Everyday day we're

Trying to outrun
The demon's we've become
It's something that we'll never change

It's only human nature
that could tear us apart
it's only human nature
to write the ending before the start

Here in the hands of fate
Without a rhyme or reason
We see the signs
We decide to look the other way
And live in a lie
It's alright we're all the same
Everyday we're

Everyday we're trying to fight
Who we are
But in the end it doesn't matter at all

» top


Next Time Around
(Hess / Lesperance)

Nothing can compare
To our state of affairs
Was it all a lie
With our love in repair
I commit emotional suicide

So I'm on the run
And you'll become
A faded memory

Next time around
No you won't see me
Next time around
There will never be a
Next time around

Half a million tries
And zero compromise
Leading to the end
Oh I'm jumping off the ride
And writing my goodbye's
In a letter yeah

Tomorrow May Be Gone
(Hess / Lesperance)

I don't know where to find sanctuary
Clutching a cross receipting ten Hail Mary's

Preaching a holy war
Kicking in heavens door
Under a setting sun
Darkness bleeds

Now
Heaven and earth have allowed to
Spread the disease
So live for today
Tomorrow may be gone

Trying to understand a misguided point of view
Hearing the voice of God and dying to make it
true

Time stands still and now I can't breath
In the blink of an eye
Intervention falling hard like
Thunder from the sky
Burning you alive

» top


Watch Your Back
(Hess / Lesperance)

This is the world you've created
One of fear and denial
Look over your shoulder praying
As you wait for the knife

Getting burned by the fire you feed
Every wound every lie
Will bleed

Watch your back
Remembering that what you give
Is what you get
The karma bank is empty
But you're gonna pay
So watch your back for me

There's a war that you're waging
And it comes from inside
And you search for tomorrow
In the moment you hide

Getting burned by the fire you feed
Every wound every lie
Will bleed

Watch your back
Remembering that what you give
Is what you get
The karma bank is empty
But you're gonna pay
So watch your back for me

Days Are Numbered
(Hess / Lesperance)

Running out of faith in the midnight hour
We're all gonna hang from our ivory towers
I roll like a train going off the tracks
Living everyday like it's gonna be the last

Yeah life is what you make of it
No regrets
No turning back

If you want
You can live
Like there's no tomorrow
Cos ya know your days are numbered
All the end of it all what you see
Is that nothing's forever
Cos ya know your
Days are numbered

Digging through the days trying to forget a past
Crawling through the race that you know won't last
Counting up time using just one hand
The hourglass is running out of sand

Yeah life is what you make of it
No regrets
No turning back

If you want
You can live
Like there's no tomorrow
Cos ya know your days are numbered
All the end of it all what you see
Is that nothing's forever
Cos ya know your
Days are numbered

Run out of faith
Here in my final hour
I roll like a train
Now there's no turning back

» top


Shooting Star
(Hess / Lesperance)

Defining me and you
Impossible to do

No clam seas
Like blowing leaves
We're searching for truth

Living everyday like there's no turning back
Like a shooting star I know
I'm crashing into the deep blue
Falling for you
You're all I wanna do

I fight for every move
While tied to dreams of youth

No clam seas
Like blowing leaves
We're searching for truth

Living everyday like there's no turning back
Like a shooting star I know
I'm crashing into the deep blue
Falling for you
You're all I wanna do

Honestly  (Acoustic version)
(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

If There Was A Time  (Acoustic version)
(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
