Kelly Z and "the Lot"

 

COME HOME

No walls can hold me like your arms

No light to start my day

No answer will bring me peace

I can not see the way

 

So come home to me 

Come home

 

No rules will ever guide me

No hands to pull me close

No freedom will find me

It's you I need the most 

 

So come home to me 

Come home to me 

Come Home

 

This shattered heart is waiting

For you to walk through that door

I will wait forever 

There's nothing more

 

No grace can give me solace

This hunger will not heal

No tears can ever wash away

This emptiness I feel

 

So come home to me 

Come home to me 

Come home

 

This shattered heart is waiting

For you to walk through that door

I will wait forever

There's nothing more

 

I'll lay myself beside you

In a dream that never ends

In world that is safe and warm

Together once again

 

We'll be home 

We'll be home

We'll be home

 

THORN

Love is a thorn in my heart

Since that day you tore us apart

Don’t want no real love, it’s just too hard

Love is a thorn in my heart

 

Dreams are a thorn in my sleep

Since that day oh you left me

Don’t want to close my eyes I’ll just weep

Dreams are a thorn in my sleep

 

They say forgiveness will set you straight

And time will tick away the hate

And truth can nerver come too late

But it’s too late

 

Cause hope is a thorn in my soul

Since you chose you chose to go

I will not hold my breath I’m saying no

Cause hope is a thorn in my soul

 

They say forgiveness will set you straight

And time will melt away the pain

And truth comes to those who wait

But I can’t wait for you to tell the truth

 

Memories are a thorn in my mind

Since you left me behind

Don’t want your memory taking up my time

Memories are a thorn in my mind

Your memory is a thorn in my mind. 

Your memory is a thorn in my mind

 

RISE ABOVE

It seems long ago when you said I do

You were young in love, it all was true

Five years later she walked out that door

You thought there'd be so much more

 

It's gonna be hard on you 

But you'll find a strength to see this through

It's gonna be so hard on your love

But you'll find a way to rise above

 

You loved her more than you thought you could

She swept you off your feet you knew she would 

But she found another she took him in

Said he made her happy and you never did

 

It's gonna be hard on you 

But you'll find a strength to see this through

It's gonna be so hard on your love

But you'll find a way to rise above

 

Hard on Your Love  Hard on Your Love

 

It's gonna be hard on you 

But you'll find a strength to see this through

It's gonna be so hard on your love

But you'll find a way to rise above

 

Hard on Your Love 

Rise above

Hard on Your Love 

Find your way

Hard on Your Love 

Gonna be so hard

Hard on Your Love 

Oh yeah

 

SLEEP

I lie here all alone  I'm not the only one in bed

And the memories from long ago awaken in my head

And the little boys I used to love smile as the evening fades

As their faces turn to angry men in this bed I made

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

Dark and lonely world of mine gives me no reprieve

Til the morning blesses me I can not leave 

And I fight the battles I fight the wars but I never win

I’m searching for redemption of every little sin

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

My body is fading fast but my mind is wide awake

Just for a moments peace I'd give what it takes

And the monsters in my head speak to me in tongues

As they get ready for the party that's just begun

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the lord my soul to keep 

If I should die before I wake 

 

 

 

ON FIRE

Today I woke up and heard

Every little single word 

That the world was feeling

Too many close their minds

Leaving others far behind

In this world of so much sorrow

 

Oh yeah the world's on fire

Everybody's getting wired

No one's really paying much attention

Oh yeah the world's on fire

And everybody says they're tired

While we walk in the wrong direction

 

But we keep walking 

Oh Walking

 

As the flames consume us all

In our pride we stand too tall

And take away another's freedom

Afraid of the boogyman

Coming from a desert land

Aren't we all just human 

 

Oh yeah the world's on fire

Everybody's getting wired

No one's really paying much attention

Oh yeah the world's on fire

And everybody says they're tired

While we walk in the wrong direction

 

But we keep walking   

We keep walking   

Walking Away

 

We keep walking  

We keep walking   

Walking 

 

Oh yeah the world's on fire

Everybody's getting wired

But no one's really paying much attention

Oh yeah the world's on fire

And everybody says they're tired

While we walk in the wrong direction

 

But we keep walking   

We keep walking       

Walking away

 

Today I woke up and heard

Every little single word 

 

 

BITTERSWEET

As I watch our heroes come home

Memories of my own

Stir inside me once again

No one welcomed us back then

 Bittersweet Bittersweet

 

I'm proud of those that serve today

I stand beside them in my own way

But the memories make me feel

Something so deep something so real

Bittersweet Bittersweet

 

We pledged allegiance

We went along

But something back there went wrong 

We gave you blood, 

We gave you lives

We came home

You criticized

Bittersweet Bittersweet

 

I am strong and still standing here

I'm living proof that you can live with fear

It's time we welcome each one home

Cause no one should ever feel that alone

Bittersweet

 

Many arms are open as our heroes return

It's nice to know a country can learn

 

 

 

STAY AWAY FROM YOU

One day walking home alone

I saw you there up on your throne

Surrounded by all of your girls

I looked into your big world

 

You You, Stay Away from you

 

You caught my eye and then you winked

My open heart began to sink

I held my breath I froze right then

I could tried to not look back again 

At You You stay away from you

You You stay from you

 

I heard your voice It spoke my name

And I would never be the same

 

You You stay away from you

You You stay from you

I got to stay so far away from you

Got to stay so far away from you

But what did I do

 

I took my turn you kissed my hand

And I was in a magic land

There was nothing left to do

I could not stay away away from you

You, stay away from you

You, You  I want to be with you

I can not stay away away from you 

I can not stay away away from you 

Even though I knew 

You'd make me so blue

 

Then I opened up my eyes

You kissed another by my side

I knew right then you can't be true

So I had to walk away from you 

You stay away from you

You You stay from you

I got to stay so far away from you

Got to stay so far away

From You

 

LOVE IS HARD TO CATCH

Love is hard to catch

When you're keeping it to yourself

Your love is hard to catch

When you're keeping it to yourself

Get up get out that door

You've had love before

Don't settle for less

 

A smile is hard to keep 

When you forget about happiness

A smile is hard to keep 

When you forget about happiness

Get up get out that door

You've smiled before

Don't settle for less

 

Trust me sister, I know that game

Trust me brother, I've done the same

Trust me mama, it ain't no lie

Before you're gone you better get it right

 

Your kisses are hard to find

When you've lost them along the way

Your kisses are hard to find

When you've lost them along the way

Get up get out that door

A kiss will give you more

Than you can say

 

Trust me sister, I know that game

Trust me brother, I've done the same

Trust me mama, it ain't no lie

Before you're gone you better get it right

 

Trust me sister, I know that game

Trust me brother, I've done the same

Trust me mama, it ain't no lie

Before you're gone you better get it right

 

Your love is hard to catch

When you're keeping it to yourself

When you're keeping it to yourself

 

Get up get out that door

You've loved before 

Don't settle for less

Get up get out that door

You've loved before 

Don't settle for less

 

WITHOUT A SONG

I’m gonna pray that we stay here for a while

I’m gonna dream til I wake up with a smile

Cause it’s been too long without a song 

 

I’m gonna sing every day that I’m alive

I’m gonna feel, I'm gonna feel everything I have inside

Cause it’s been too long without a song

And I’m barely hanging on

 

Life gives you chances that you must take

So live in the moment before it’s too late

Life gives you choices that you must make

To live in the moment before it’s too late

 

And it's been too long without a song

 

I’m gonna love like I’ve never loved before

And I’m gonna fly, I'm gonna fly oh through every open door

 

Life gives you chances that you must take

So live in the moment before it’s too late

Life gives you choices that you must make

To live in the moment before it’s too late

 

And it's been too long without a song

It's been too long 

 

I’m gonna pray that we stay here for a while

I’m gonna dream til I wake up with a smile

 

 

HAPPY

Happy is right around the corner

Happy is right behind the bend

Things are bound to get better 

Get better but we don't know when

 

We gotta find it (oh yeah)

Wrap our arms around it (come on)

We gotta get ourselves some more

 

Love is right there in that cloud

Love is right behind that door

Things are bound to get better

Get better like they were before 

 

We gotta find it (oh yeah)

Wrap our arms around it (come on)

We gotta get ourselves some more 

 

Get yourself some happy

Get yourself some love

Get what you need to rise above

 

Time is right there running out

Time is right there walking by

Things will never get better

If you just stand still and cry

 

We gotta find it (oh yeah)

Wrap our arms around it (come on)

We gotta get ourselves some more 

 

Get yourself some happy (come on)

Get yourself some love

Get what you need to rise above 

 

Get yourself some happy

Get yourself some love

Get what you need to rise above 

Happy

 

PROUD

I stand tall in my glory

I am proud of who I am

And I have my own story

And I stand tall and I stand proud

 

And I live in my own skin

Just like you I survive

And I’ll tell you my story 

And with love we can thrive

 

I will fight for freedom

I will make some noise

I won't be leaving 

I found my voice

 

There's a light in heartbeat 

Helps us see through the pain

And if all we just get closer 

There will be no more shame

 

And I live in my own skin

It is there I survive

It is part of my story

And with love we can thrive

 

I will fight for freedom

I will make some noise

I won't be leaving

I found my voice

 

I stand tall in my glory

I am proud of who I am

And I have my own story

And I stand tall and I stand proud
