  1. INTRO  (instrumental) 

 

2.  MARCHING 

Marching in the Ides of March,

The road ahead is my beating heart,

Not sure where I’m going to be,

Just know I got to keep on marching,

Marching in the Ides of March,

The road ahead is my broken heart,

Not sure how to avoid those pieces of front of me,

Just know I’ve got to keep on marching,

Marching in the Ides of March,

Will all this marching cure my broken heart?

When I’m marching in the Ides of March,

Yeah marching in those Ides of March…..

 

Or have I been marching to you this whole time?

You are my drumbeat you give sight to the blind,

You are my sunrise when all is dark inside,

Tell me… Have I been marching to you this whole time?

Have I just been blind?

Have I been marching to you this whole time?

Because you are my sunrise,

Have I been marching to you this whole time?

I know I’ve been marching to you this whole time……

 

Marching in those ides of March,

Yeah.. Marching in those ides of March,

Look on the ground for those pieces of my broken heart,

What kind of Atlas will help me find what I use to hold so dearly inside?

I’ve traveled down every road,

Marched down every path,

But it seems like wherever you go in your future,

You can’t escape your past,

So I’m marching with my broken heart,

But did I just find you in the dark?

When I’m marching in those ides of March,

Did I just find what I’m looking for in the dark?

 

3. 7-12-15 (PART TWO) 

Skinned alive but at least I have skin,
Your eyes are seasons and your hair is the wind,

Your words are little ropes tying up my loose ends,

Your smile gives the stars sunlight,

This day will never end.

 

Is your hurt camouflaged by curiosity?
Is your anger a side affect of your generosity?
Have you ever been loved the way you should be?

Take my hand and let’s talk more under that little tree

 

Blending in but at least I can blend,

Your sentences are sonnets… too much for conversation,

Your hand reaches my hand as the night ends,

The fire inside of me asks: “Can we do it again?”

 

Can we do it again?

 

 

And if not I promise its okay….

But before you kiss me and turn away….

Do you usually turn away from what God sets in front of you?

Do you prefer punishment over virtue?

Have you ever been loved the way you should be?

Oh you’ve never been loved the way you should be,

So take my hand and we’ll go talk under the little tree,

Yeah take my hand and don’t let go please.

 

I’m not letting go unless you make me,

I’m not letting go unless you make me….

 

(Skinned alive but at least I have skin,

Your eyes are seasons and your hair is the wind,

Your words are little ropes tying up my loose ends,

Your smile gives the stars sunlight…

Make sure this night never ends,

I hope our night never ends,

Yeah… I hope our night never ends)

 

4. DANCING 

We are really both the same,

So until God comes to take away our pain,

We will be dancing all night long.

 

Yeah… we are really both the same,

So until God comes to take away our pain,

We will be dancing all night long.

 

Dance like you never danced before,

I want to feel you on the dance room floor,

I want to touch you like you’ve never been touched before,

I want to feel you on the dance room floor,

So dance like you’ve never dance before,

I want to feel you… like you’ve never been insecure,

I want to feel you until you can’t handle anymore,

I want to feel you on the dance room floor,

 

We are really both the same,

So until God comes to take away our pain,

We will be dancing all night long.

 

5.  I NEED SOMEBODY 

Sitting on the dock of the bay,

Drunk and wasting away,

I spend all my time drinking,

Yet I wonder why time won’t have a drink with me,

But really I’m just a product of time,

Every minute is a piece of glass down my spine,

The glass comes out of my teeth,

End up stepping on that glass and bleeding on the grass beneath,

So I’m bleeding because of my time?

I’m such a sick person,

Is there any escape for me?

I really think I just need somebody,

I really just need somebody,

I really just need a body,

Yeah….

 

I really just need somebody…

Will I ever find somebody?

 

(Am I wasting my time if I look for love down the wrong avenues?
I feel like I’ve used every Atlas and map and I still don’t know where to go to,

Every place I go to is a three-car pile up of lust, lack of sympathy, and lack of virtue,

And I’m a spectator in traffic not knowing what to do,

Every place is an orgy with drinks of 100% proof,

They bleed love and bleed lust but just leave you dizzy and confused,

Will I ever find what I need?

Or will I waste more time on a myth… one that is disproven by psychology?

Does monogamy even exist?

Is love even on my compass?

I don’t know where I’ll end up,

I don’t know where I’ll go,

I just know I need somebody….

For sure)

 

6. THINKING ABOUT YOU 

In the middle of a dog day,

I’ve got no dogs left in the fight,

Thinking about the way things change,

But I’m still a thing that has stayed the same….

 

But then I’m thinking about you……
I’m thinking about you,

I’m thinking about you,

All the sudden it is so clear,

You’re everything to me.

 

In the middle of a dog day,

I’ve got no dogs left in the fight,

Thinking about the way things change,

But I’m still a thing that has stayed the same….

 

But then I’m thinking about you……

 

I’m thinking about you,

I’m thinking about you,

All the sudden it is so clear,

You’re everything to me.

 

7. BY YOUR SIDE 

When the sun rises,

I will be by your side,

When heaven and hell collide,

I will be by your side,

When the world tears up your insides,

I will be by your side,

If you need a place to hide,

I will be by your side,

I will be by your side.

 

Because you are everything,

Even when there is nothing,

Because you are the eye,

When the world is the storm,

Because you are the centre,

When everything is spinning,

And you are the truth,

When nothing else is forgiving,

Because you are everything,

Even when there’s nothing,

Because you are everything,

And the world is storm,

Because you are everything,

Even when everything is spinning,

Because you are everything,

When nothing is forgiving,

Because you are everything,

Because you are everything,

You are everything,

So I’ll be by your side…..

 

So I’ll be by your side,

Because there’s no place I would rather be,

So I’ll be by your side,

Because there’s no place I would rather be,

So I’ll be by your side,

Because there’s no place I would rather be….

Let’s go!

 

Because you’re everything to me!

 

So I’ll be by your side,

Because there’s no place I would rather be,

So I’ll be by your side,

Because there’s no place I would rather be,

So I’ll be by your side….

 

When the world goes to hell,

I will be by your side,

When everything turns to quicksand,

I will be by your side,

When it all is lost,

I will be by your side,

When our utopia turns into a holocaust,

I will be by your side,

I will be by your side.

 

8. THERE FOR YOU 

As the sun collapses to sleep at sea,

The waves caress the sun like a mother and offer it sleep,

Nurtures the sun back to life the next morning,

The sea says:

“I will be there for you,

Will you be there for me?”

 

Yeah…..

“I will be there for you,

Will you be there for me?”

Please…..

 

As the wounded snake collapses under a truthful willow tree,

The tree says I should let you die….

I know everything,

But we all knew sin before you introduced it,

But we didn’t know God until you proved it!

So with his roots cannibalizing himself he began to speak….

Said:
“I’ll be there for you,

Will you be there for me?”

 

Yeah….

“I’ll be there for you,

Will you be there for me?”

Please…..

 

Dancing down a rainy street,

All we know we are is a collection of bones and feet,

The first time you said you loved me…

It sent shivers down my spine,

But it didn’t make me feel cold inside,

So I’ll be there for you,

If you are there for me.

 

Yeah…

I’ll be there for you,

If you are there for me.

 

9. WAVES

You only think what you want to think,

You only hear what you want to hear,

If only you could hear what I think about you,

It’s true.

 

You only believe what you want to believe,

You only see what you want to see,

If only you see how much I believe in you,

It’s true.

 

You only feel what you want to feel,

You only go where you want to go,

If only you could go to a place where I could feel you….

 

Beneath the trees,

Beneath the sand,

We will go to our promised land….

 

Because you only think what you want to think,

But I can only think of you,

It’s true.

 

Because I love you……

 

Let those waves wash over you.

 

10. WHO THE HELL IS JILL? 

How can I trust anyone?
Anyone but me?

How can I trust anyone?

Anyone but me?

 

Who the hell is Jill?

 

11. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF ME NOW? 

What do you think of me now?

 

Do you ever think about me at all?

 

I do I still think about you,

(That’s not true),

Just calm down…

(I can’t calm down),

There’s no need to be so aggressive….

(How am I not supposed to be aggressive?)

So self-loathing,

(I’m not being self-loathing!)

Blair, you’re tearing everything apart

(I’m not tearing anything apart!)

Just listen to me…..

(I’m listening to you!)

I love you,

And nothing is going to change that!

(Do you really love me?)

(What if I lose my mind?)

Please calm down…..

(I’m calming down,

I’m smelling the roses!

I’m calming down,

Nevermind!)

 

What do you think of me now?

 

I don’t know what to think of you, Blair,

I guess it is hard to think when a million thoughts are in your head,

You are like the back of the book I haven’t read through,

You are everything yet nothing at the same time,

I don’t know what to think of you,

One day is tears the next is the happiest of my life,

Why can’t you center yourself, Blair?

Because we are running out of time,

Because I can’t do this forever…….

Even though I want to do this forever,

Yeah I can’t do this forever,

Even though I want to do this forever,

Just love me like I should be loved,

Just love me like should be loved,

Please….

Just love me like I should be loved.

 

(Yeah I will love you,

And I will listen to you,

And I don’t want our time to run out,

So I will love you,

And I will listen to you)

 

Oh shit…..

 

What do you think of me now?

 

12. EVERYTHING 

Sitting back and I don’t know where to begin,

Every star is clothed with a piece of your skin,

Every cloud is a portrait of your beautiful face,

Every shadow a memory of our last embrace,

I’m sitting and I don’t know where to begin,

Because I see you in everything,

Yeah…

Because I see you in everything.

 

Sitting back and looking forward at the same time,

Your tongue is like a camera,

Reciting photographic memories from my mind,

Eyes covered in water look like two stones in a sea,

Stones that are drowning in the currents,

Yet moving with the waves,

They are seeing everything,

Yeah you are seeing everything.

 

In you I’m seeing my everything,

Yeah…

In you I’m seeing everything……

 

Sitting back and looking forward at the same time,

Your tongue is like a camera,

Reciting photographic memories from my mind,

Eyes covered in water look like two stones in a sea,

Stones that are drowning in the currents,

Yet moving with the waves,

They are seeing everything,

Yeah you are seeing everything.

 

 

In you I see everything.

 

Yeah you are my everything.

 

13. IN THE END 

In the end,

We are who we’ve always been,

In the end,

We end where we begin,

In the beginning,

We are who are going to be,

In the beginning,

It is all up to destiny,

In the end,

We are who always are,

In the end,

We are all scars.

 

But I don’t want it to end,

But I don’t want this to end,

Yeah, this will never end…..

 

In the end….

Am I even with you?

Am I even with you?

Is what they say the truth?

In the end….

Is what they say true?

Am I even with you?

 

In the end,

We are who we always are,

In the end,

We are who we’ve always been,

In the end,

We are a blank canvass with no painting,

In the end,

We are just a hallucination,

In the end,

We are who we have always been,

In the end,

I will love you to the end,

In the end,

We are who we always are,

In the end,

We are a summarization of our scars.

 

In the end,

We are just a collection of bones and skin,

In the end,

We are fodder for fish, a hallucination,

In the end,

We end up where we begin,

In the end,

Do I end up with you?

Do I end up where I begin?

In the end,

Things don’t really change,

In the end,

They just really become deranged,

In the end,

Do I end up with you?

In the end,

Is this life of any virtue?

In the end,

Do we ever really know what to do?

 

But you know in the end I’ll be there with you,

No matter what we go through,

You know in the end I’ll be with you,

Until I turn blue,

You know in the end… I’ll be there for you,

No matter what we go through,

You know in the end…. I’ll be there for you,

Until I’m broken and bruised,

You know in the end… I’ll be there for you,

Until I’m rotting away and used,

You know in the end… I’ll be there for you,

Want to be there for everything you go through,

You know in the end… I’ll be there for you,

It is the least I can do,

You know in the end…. I’ll be there for you,

Because I love you.

 

 

Because I love you.
