New Day 02:43
Thirty-six years doesn't matter at all When it just takes a moment for all of these walls That I've built to come crashing to earth the way everything does And the pieces of me that I've bled on this page Will be memories and ghosts when I step on the stage But I'll sing them to life to remember the man that I was It's a new day It's a new day It's a new day I stand on the street and I stare at the moon But the clock ticks away and the sun's coming soon Tomorrow's arriving whether I'm ready or not And all I'm embracing and all I avoid And all I've created and all I've destroyed And all that I've learned and all I've already forgot It's a new day It's a new day It's a new day Spinning around on this rock every year We are who we are until they disappear Everything changes and most of it changes you The man that you see here may look just like me But he's not who I was and he's not who I'll be You blink and it's morning and suddenly everything's new It's a new day It's a new day It's a new day And it's time to wake up

Come Find Me 03:42
Come find me Come and save me from these bars From this cage that I've constructed out of broken hearts and scars Remind me Of the man I used to be Before all the things I am Get the better of me I thank God for little favors like the music in my brain It's the only thing aside from you that's ever kept me sane And when all the noise and violence burns like poison in my veins Come find me Come find me Cause I'll go crazy If I have to live this way Fight my demons til the morning and then sleep away the day So come on, baby Let me taste your kiss Come and hold me like you used to, just don't leave me here like this I thank God for little favors like the music in my brain It's the only thing aside from you that's ever kept me sane And when all the noise and violence burns like poison in my veins Come find me Come find me When the cold reaches my bones And I can't fight it on my own When it feels like all the beauty and the love is far behind me Come find me I thank God for little favors like the music in my brain It's the only thing aside from you that's ever kept me sane And when all the noise and violence burns like poison in my veins Come find me Come find me Come find me Come find me Come find me Come find the man I used to be Before all the things I am get the better of me

Standing on the platform, waiting on the train Screaming at the storm clouds trying to make it rain I know that when I'm southbound everything will change Standing on the platform, not another soul in sight Willing my eyes open, I didn't sleep at all last night I know that when I'm southbound everything will be alright I know that when I'm southbound, then I'll be ok And all my restless days will end So I'm praying that the wind Will blow me home again Standing on the platform, wondering what I'm gonna do The middle of my heart's been frozen to a shade of blue When I make it south, then I'll be safe and warm with you When I tilt my head southbound and the air is still I can hear you every now and then Praying that the wind Will blow me home again Standing on the platform, waiting on the train Screaming at the storm clouds trying to make it rain I know that when I'm southbound everything will change I know that when I'm southbound everything will change

They bled me out And watched me fade away I had my doubts That I'd make it anyway The rich men danced away From the messes that they made And left us here to pay the bill And I can't seem to write a song about it Even though it's all I think about I can't seem to wrap my words around it I can't write a song about it now If I had been Made of stronger stuff Maybe then I would have been enough But you just danced away From the messes that I made I can't say you're to blame, my love And I can't seem to write a song about it Even though it's all I think about I can't seem to wrap my words around it I can't write a song about it now It's eating at my soul And I'm the only one who knows And I can't seem to write a song about it Even though it's all I think about I can't seem to wrap my words around it I can't write a song about it now
