I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naïve
I’m just out to find
The better part of me

I’m more than a bird,
I’m more than a plane
I’m more than some pretty face beside a train
It’s not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
‘Bout a home I’ll never see

It may sound absurd but don’t be naïve
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed but won’t you concede
Even Heroes have the right to dream
And it’s not easy to be me

Up, up and away, away from me
Well, it’s alright
You can all sleep sound tonight
I’m not crazy or anything

I can’t stand to fly
I’m not that naïve
Men weren’t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I’m only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
Inside of me, inside of me [2x]

I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
I’m only a man looking for her dream
I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
It’s not easy.
It’s not easy to be me.

I tried all night,
I tried calling you up,
But it just ring ring rings
And you never pick up.
So what’s up? What’s up? What’s up?
I thought that we were okay.

I left a message
But I messed it right up,
I tried to do it again,
But it just ain’t long enough.
So pick up. Pick up. Pick up.
And hear what I gotta say.
After the beat, beat, beat. (I’ll say)

My heart beats louder, when you come in close,
And you’ve got this power, that won’t let me go.
It’s the best thing. (Tell me it’s the best thing)
Say you feel the same thing (Say you feel the same thing)
And I count each hour, until we’re alone.
And I keep on checking, keep checking my phone.
I’ll be waiting. (Waiting for your call)
You’re just so amazing. (Waiting for your call)

I keep on trying but I’m all out of luck,
But I still ring ring ring cos I’m not giving up.
I’ll wait up, wait up, I’ll wait up,
Cos it’s all I can do. (I’ll say)

My heart beats louder, when you come in close,
And you’ve got this power, that won’t let me go.
It’s the best thing. (Tell me it’s the best thing)
Say you feel the same thing (Say you feel the same thing)
And I count each hour, until we’re alone.
And I keep on checking, keep checking my phone.
I’ll be waiting. (Waiting for your call)
You’re just so amazing. (Waiting for your call)

I never thought,
I never thought to check my phone.
I never thought,
I never thought to try and see.
That when I was trying to call you,
You were trying to call me.
(You have 1 new message)

She said her heart beats louder, when I come in close,
And I’ve got this power, that won’t let her go.
It’s the best thing (Tell me it’s the best thing)
Do you feel the same thing? (Say you feel the same thing)
And she counts each hour, until we’re alone.
And she keeps on checking, checking her phone.
She’ll be waiting. (Waiting for my phone call)
Cos she’s so amazing. (Waiting for my phone call)

Dancing where the stars go blue,
Dancing where the evening fell,
Dancing in your wooden shoes,
In your wedding gown.

Dancing out in seven streets,
Dancing through the underground,
Dancing little marionette,
Are you happy now?

Where do you go when you’re lonely?
Where do you go when you’re blue?
Where do you go when you’re lonely,
I’ll follow you.

When the stars go blue (Blue)
When the stars go blue (Blue)

Laughing with your pretty mouth,
Laughing with your broken eyes,
Laughing with your lovers tone,
In a lullaby.

Where do you go when you’re lonely?
Where do you go when you’re blue?
Where do you go when you’re lonely,
I’ll follow you.

When the stars go blue (Blue)
When the stars go blue (Blue)
When the stars go blue (Blue)
When the stars go, blue.

Oooh.

Where do you go when you’re lonely?
Where do you go when you’re blue yeah?
Where do you go when you’re lonely,
I’ll follow you, follow you.

Yeah yeah.

Where do you go when you’re lonely?
Where do you go when you’re blue?
Where do you go when you’re lonely,
I’ll follow you.

When the stars go blue (Blue)
When the stars go blue (Blue)
When the stars go blue (Blue)
When the stars go blue.

Spend all your time waiting,
For that second chance.
For a break that would make it okay,
There’s always some reason,
To feel not good enough.
And it’s hard at the end of the day.

I need some distraction,
Oh beautiful release,
Memories seep from our veins.
Let me be empty,
Or weightless and maybe,
I’ll find some peace tonight.

In the arms of the angels,
Fly away from here.
You’re in the arms of the angels,
May you find,
Some comfort here.

So tired of the straight line,
Everywhere you turn.
There’s vultures and thieves at your back.
The storm keeps on twisting,
Keep on building the lies,
That you’ll make up for all that you lack.

It don’t make no difference,
Escaping one last time.
It’s easier to believe.
In this sweet madness,
Or this glory of sadness,
That brings me to my knees.

In the arms of the angels,
Fly away from here.
From this dark cold hotel room,
And the endlessness that you fear.
You are pulled from the wreckage,
Of your silent reverie.
You’re in the arms of the angels,
May you find,
Some comfort here.

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.

One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

[Chorus:]
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

When you’ve given everything you’ve got,
But never seems as good enough.
Lighting candles in the rain,
You keep going back again,
When you’re lying on your bed
And everything you said, comes back at you.
Like a shot out of the dark,
What’s a bullets through your heart.

I can see you,
In the shadow,
Won’t you step out here beside me
For a while?
Oh oh oh

cos anything could happen,
Anything could happen when you smile.
Smile.
Break the spell tonight,
Set my world alight.
Go ahead and smile.
Smile.
cos you’re too beautiful,
To be crying now.
What can I do to make you smile?

If every single cell in you,
Is screaming out to say it’s not okay.
Let the blood rush through your veins,
This is momentary pain.
And as the feeling starts to bite,
A tear drop will ignite a spark in you.
You’ve been hiding it too long,
Don’t you know the nightmare’s gone.

I can see you,
In the shadow,
Won’t you step out here beside me
For a while?
Oh oh oh

cos anything could happen,
Anything could happen when you smile.
Smile.
Break the spell tonight,
Set my world alight.
Go ahead and smile.
Smile.
cos you’re too beautiful,
To be crying now.
What can I do to make you smile?

You,
Don’t see,
What I see,
You don’t know how beautiful you are.
Just let,
Me in.
Let’s step out of the dark.

cos anything could happen,
Anything could happen when you smile.
Smile.
Break the spell tonight,
Set my world alight.
Go ahead and smile.
Smile.
cos you’re too beautiful,
To be crying now.

When you smile.
Smile.
Break the spell tonight,
Set my world alight.
Go ahead and smile.
Smile.
cos you’re too beautiful,
To be crying now.
What can I do to make you smile?

I heard that you’re settled down
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I had hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I’d hoped you’d see my face and that you’d be reminded
That for me it isn’t over.

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.”

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don’t forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead.

Everybody’s looking for a something
One thing that makes it all complete
You’ll find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be
Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover’s eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings
Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You’ll find it in the words of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry
You’ll find it in the deepest friendship
The kind you cherish all your life
And when you know how much it means
You’ve found that special thing
You’re flying without wings
So, impossible as it may seem
You’ve got to fight for every dream
‘Cause who’s to know which one you let go
Would have made you complete
Well, for me it’s waking up beside you
To watch the sunrise on your face
To know that I can say I love you
At any given time or place
It’s little things that only I know
Those are the things that make you mine
And it’s like flying without wings
‘Cause you’re my special thing
I’m flying without wings
And you’re the place my life begins
And you’ll be where it ends
I’m flying without wings
And that’s the joy you bring
I’m flying without wings

Her eyes, her eyes,
Make the stars look like they’re not shining.
Her hair, her hair,
Falls perfectly without her trying.
She’s so beautiful,
And I tell her every day.

Yeah, I know I know,
When I compliment her she won’t believe me.
It’s so it’s so,
Sad to think that she don’t see what I see.
But every time she asks me
“Do I look okay?”
I say.

When I see your face,
There’s not a thing that I would change.
cos you’re amazing,
Just the way you are.
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for a while,
cos girl you’re amazing,
Just the way you are.

Yeah. Her lips, her lips,
I could kiss them all day if she’d let me.
Her laugh, her laugh,
She hates but I think it’s so sexy.
She’s so beautiful,
And I tell her every day.

Oh you know you know you know
I’d never ask you to change.
If perfect’s what you’re searching for
Then just stay the same.
So don’t even bother asking
If you look okay,
You know I’ll say.

When I see your face,
There’s not a thing that I would change.
cos you’re amazing,
Just the way you are.
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for a while,
cos girl you’re amazing,
Just the way you are.

The way you are,
The way you are,
Girl you’re amazing,
Just the way you are.

When I see your face,
There’s not a thing that I would change.
cos you’re amazing,
Just the way you are.
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for a while,
cos girl you’re amazing,
Just the way you are.

If you’re not the one
Then why does my soul feel glad, today?
If you’re not the one
Then why does my hand fit yours, this way?
If you are not mine
Then why does your heart return, my call?
If you are not mine
Would I have the strength to stand, at all?

I’ll never know what the future brings,
But I know you’re here with me now.
And we’ll make it through,
And I hope you are the one I
Share my life with.

I don’t wanna run away,
But I can’t take it, I don’t understand.
If I’m not made for you then,
Why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay,
In your arms?

If I don’t need you
Then why am I crying on, my bed?
If I don’t need you
Then why does your name resound, in my head?
If you’re not for me
Then why does this distance maim, my life?
If you’re not for me
Then why do I dream of you, as my wife?

I don’t know why you’re so far away,
But I know that this much is true.
And we’ll make it through,
And I hope you are the one I
Share my life with.

And I wish that
You could be the one I die with.

And I’m praying you’re the one I,
Build my home with.

I hope I love you all my life.

I don’t wanna run away,
But I can’t take it, I don’t understand.
If I’m not made for you then,
Why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay,
In your arms?

cos I miss you,
Body and so so strong
That it takes my breath away.
And I breathe you,
Into my heart and pray
For the strength to
Stand today,
cos I love you.

Whether it’s wrong or right,
And though I can’t be with you tonight.
You know my heart is
By your side.

I don’t wanna run away,
But I can’t take it, I don’t understand.
If I’m not made for you then,
Why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay,
In your arms?

There’s a picture, that makes me smile.
I keep it with me, to keep you close.
If I could go back, and press rewind.
I’d be there with you, I’d never let you go.

Do you ever start to wonder,
About what we could have been?

Oh oh oh, we were solid gold,
Were we too young to know,
That we belong together?
Oh oh oh, still shining in my heart,
But now we’re worlds apart,
These thoughts of you I treasure.

Girl why did you have to go?
cos you and me were solid gold (gold, gold).

There’s a message, still on my phone.
I keep on playing, just to hear you say,
How you missed me, how you’re alone.
It seems so long now, do you feel the same?

Do you ever start to wonder,
About what we could have been?

Oh oh oh, we were solid gold,
Were we too young to know,
That we belong together?
Oh oh oh, still shining in my heart,
But now we’re worlds apart,
These thoughts of you I treasure.

Girl why did you have to go?
cos you and me were solid gold.

We were priceless,
Nothing like it,
Nothing ever moved me like you do,
I’m still holding on for you.
Holding on.

Oh oh oh, we were solid gold (we were solid gold),
Were we too young to know,
That we belong together?
Oh oh oh, still shining in my heart (shining in my heart),
But now we’re worlds apart,
These thoughts of you I treasure.

Girl why did you have to go?
cos you and me were solid gold.
