Rocks | Lyrics

Hard To Love
(Ward / Hess / Lesperance)

You come on like a sweet child here drive me wild when I want you
You giving me a rough time then you change your mind then you want me
You come so close, but you never stay
You take my heart, and then you walk away

You're hard to love, but it's hard to let you go
I need you now, but I'm afraid of letting you know
It's hard to love, and never understand
How it slips right through your hands

I wanna say you're mine but acting like you don't know me
All I need is one night just to make it right when you're lonely
I got to know if we can make it last

Can't pretend I don't want you to know
Every touch leaves your mark on me
Little things seem to haunt me now
I can't believe you've become a part of me

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

How Long
(Hess / Lesperance / McTaggart)

It's gonna take some time 'til I'm over you
I'd gave you it all, there wasn't nothing that I wouldn't do
Now that it hurts so bad, when I found out the truth
That you'd been running around, Oh I was such a fool

I know I can't keep holding on, cause it's hard for me
Now that you're gone, I'm haunted by your memory

How long, 'til my heart can love again
I've tried and I've tried, I don't know what else to do
How long 'til this broken heart mends
Will I ever be over you

So many sleepless nights since we've been apart
They say time will ease the pain, tell this broken heart
I know I can't keep holding on, cause it's hard for me
Now that you're gone, I'm haunted by your memory

Chorus

Saviors Never Cry
(Hess / Lesperance)

You say that I'm lost
You got the word that I'm going down
Yea, it may be true
It's like twenty-four tons of hard hitting headache
When you realize that you're coming unglued

I've sown and you've sown the seeds of youth
Time won't and I don't conceal the truth

So get up and fly away
Or forever be in doubt
You know, Saviours never cry
You're hot on the heels of hope and love
Dreams can never die
Tear down the walls you hide behind
There's just one thing in your life
That you gotta do
You wanna break on through
Don't be kind to the core
Easy to ignore
If your lips never move
You're bound to lose the war

I know and you know
There's no use
Trying to hold back the years
Making a career out of hiding the truth
A new day is born
You need to wake the dying
The hand that it's in is yours

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

Sentimental BLVD.
(Hess)

I was fooled by your devil's disguise
I've been rained on enough
Now the sun won't rise
It seems I've been wasting my time
Carrying the weight of the world
And there's no end in sight

Now there's nothing for you
And nothing for me
I'm like a worn-out soldier
Running around incomplete
What used to keep it together
Comes apart at the seams
Now I know
You can never run away too far
Cause people get lost
On Sentimental Blvd.
It's better not to wait too long
Cause feelings get lost
On Sentimental Blvd.
We get older
And wonder where the time has gone

Put your dreams and your faith on the line
They're just reflections of us
In the mirror of life
Then it feels like it's passing you by
When fear is stronger than love
It can break all the ties

If I could read your mind I'd know
(Why you keep praying resolution will come)
If you lay your heart on a million lines
You'll be wondering where the time has gone
It goes on and on

Believe
(Hess / Lesperance)

When all love is gone and destiny's wronged
The premise of all our lives
You can't find your way
Out of this foreign abyss
To change the tides
Drowning in heartache
What feels like forever

When judgement will come
To temples I'll run for solace beyond our eyes
Now God thread the bait
Shackled and harnessed in faith
The stains have dried
Desperate and blindly
We trudge on forever
But I won't let you
You have to believe
The soul and the will live on
When all is gone
Your faith pulls you through
Don't wait for the moment
When time leaves no chances
Don't hold on to find out
Your tomorrows were sold out to
Save me from harm

Die Off Hard
(Hess / Lesperance)

Remeber the lost summer nights
We never found a warmer breeze
If we're lost in time
I'm stayin' here and never gonna leave

I remember the look in your eyes
Is it something that I'll never see again
We're gonna make it right
'Cos I'm not searching till the bitter end

It's been a long time coming
I'm tired of failing you
It's been a long time coming
It's time to face the truth
They're old habits that
Die Off Hard
Invading our love
It keeps growing stronger
Die Off Hard
Now pain won't let go
It keeps growing stronger in us

Through the years I find
Nothing's straight it's just another haze
So unless we try to fight a dawning
Of a graceless age
We'll encompass a life destined to the cold beliefs we had
We're gonna make it right
I won't live a life I never wanted to lead

Turn Around
(Hess / Lesperance)

I should apologize
For my new compromise
A temporary disease

Another dumb mistake
To think that you would change
Now I'm admitting defeat

Well I knew what this would mean
But still I let myself get back into it
It's time to turn around

If your not careful
She'll rip your heart out
And shove it in your mouth

Now I took all the blame
Off my little brain
And said 'the devil made me'
Put the turpentine
In her carafe of wine
And I got a reprieve

So Blind
(Hess / Lesperance)

Headlines detach us from the world
Throwing all compassion overboard
Like big flies circling the corpse
It's getting more disgraceful than before

What will we ride
When this horse dies
Will eat the shit and jump in

With both feet in the fire
Rubbing ignorance into our eyes
We're blind, so blind
To all the world's injustice
We're so blind

In their sick minds
They justify it all
Emotionally straying from the course
For the big prize
A hundred million whores
Raping all humanity and more

Climb The Gate
(Hess / Lesperance)

Born so we could lay
In a burning bed of rusted nails
Now it's my cause to stay awake

Will human kind prevail
Over prophecies of godless rages
For a world that's gone astray

Save preaching better times
They're bitter lies
Hey I could always climb the gate

It's heaven I hold this time

The comet's on the way
On holy ground we'll walk with angels
I just hope it's not today

I find it hard to pray
With one foot in my mouth
And one in the grave
Well so much for staying sane

» top


Sometimes I Wish
(Hess / Lesperance)

Like Jesus nailed to the cross
We're all hanging prey
To the demons that we face
'Til our dying day

Now how long can I suffer defeat
Like a dog that's been tied up and chained
In a world that needs someone to hate

Sometimes I wish I wasn't born
Sometimes I wish I were everything
That I thought I could be in my demented dreams
Sometimes I wish I wasn't born
Sometimes I wish I were everything
The perfect holy poster boy for vanity

How dignified we first fall into this maze
And it dulls the mind thinking of ways that I will sustain

They devour your piece of the dream
Like a cancer that's eating away
While the vultures fly in for the feast

Stuck With You
(Hess / Lesperance)

There couldn't be any more anarchy if we tried
Your liberty is irony living free takin' a ride

We walk on the line of hypocrisy
We're all out of time but I don't wanna leave

Starting over today
It ain't in my head I'm stuck with you
Like glue

All the killer bees casualities everybody's paying a price
I'll pollute the sea hug a tree undercook your meat and
You'll die

In another time I almost believed
We're both out of line thinking that we're free

Bored enough of the games
It ain't in my head I'm stuck with you
Like glue

Trip
(Lesperance)

Hey there shut the door on your way out
Cause this is getting shameful
And I feel I don't know my name and number
I was standing there with my two cents
And now I'll never get to spend it
Cause it seems like checkmate
This game is over

And now you're fading out of sight
You can hate it if you want to
You'd sell your shoes to get it right
Yeah right...like I believe in anything anyway
Oh yeah I know what you're thinking
Save me the same old trip to nowhere
Cause I'm not going anywhere
Surprise surprise I gave in
And once again you'll get your own way
Cause I know you'll only take it anyway

Lately things are changing around here
I'm in need of a vacation
I mean I don't know why my friends are
I can't see it get any better
I'm losing my direction
I mean I don't know where I'm going

If I'd Been Awake  (Bonus track)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I have been under your feet for so long
you don't care
you're walking all over me
and it's wrong

you won't cut me from your leash
becoming a disease
oh wait I can't lift off the ground
the possibilities of you

if I'd been awake
would I come up with a plan
get my head out of the sand
I'm trying
if I'd been awake
time to give a damn
get my head out of the sand

I've tried to reason with you all along
there's no way
now you've chosen the road
that you're on

Going Nowhere  (Bonus track)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Ain't it strange
this world welive in
that's afraid
of the things we should've been

And you sell yourself
look the other way
to a war
let's begin
only six feet down to an early grave
andyou're standing up

And everything is going to hell
and you're going as well
but youdon't know
just what to wear
if I'm going I'll pray
and avoid all the plagues
Iain't going
I ain't going nowhere

A little late
to wonder where we're heading
in the game
with the ones we're killing

Concrete shoes
though snowy junes
nowarming clues
be gone what wanna do
