Young Forever

Bus to Mexico

East coast to west coast
Let's get in the car and drive
Atlantic, she’s calling
Forget all of your troubles, get out of Anaheim

Take a bus to Mexico, see the colors green and gold
I've been losing sleep to feel the sunlight hit my eyes
Take a plane to anywhere, where I end up I don't care
Send me off into the skyline

Tonight, all of this waiting for me
Too right, it's as if you're riding next to me
It's time to throw it all away and just let it go

Dancing, romancing
Leave all your troubles aside
Moving with you in the back
Let our souls just ignite and come alive

Take a bus to Mexico, see the colors green and gold
I've been losing sleep to feel the sunlight hit my eyes
Take a plane to anywhere, where I end up I don’t care
Send me off into the skyline

Tonight, all of this waiting for me
Too right, it's as if you’re riding next to me
It's time to throw it all away and just let it go

Throw it all away
Throw it all away
All away
Throw it all away
Throw it all away
All away
Throw it all away
Throw it all away
All away
Throw it all away

Tonight, all of this waiting for me
Too right, it's as if you're riding next to me
It's time to throw it all away and just let it go
Let it go

Tonight, all of this waiting for me
Too right, it's as if you’re riding next to me
It's time to throw it all away and just let it go

Take a bus to Mexico

Forever I Do

Everything that I wished for
Has just come true
'Cause today I asked
Can I marry you?
I could feel the butterflies
Dance around inside of me
Everything that I wished for
Is me and you
Forever I do
Forever I do

I swear that I'll keep you safe from harm
Forever I do
I swear that I'll live with open arms
Forever I do
Vow to choose you every day

You're everything that I wished for
Since I met you
You turn a winter's day
Into the perfect tune
When your heart beats against mine
You fuel my love for life
You're everything that I wished for
And that's the truth
Forever I do
Forever I do

I swear that I'll keep you safe from harm
Forever I do
I swear that I'll live with open arms
Forever I do
Vow to choose you every day

Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do

If there's ever a time that you're feeling blue
I'll be all that you wished for, I promise you
If we did this all again
I'd choose you just the same
Remember that day in Malibu
We said
We said forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do
Forever I do

Sixteen

Do you remember the times
We were drinking cheap wine
Sitting out by the fireside

Beneath the faint northern lights
In the cold summer nights
We were young, dumb, and feeling all right

We were skipping school and
Breaking all the rules
We didn't have a care in the world

Good times and bestest of friends
Hanging over at Ben's
I loved it when

When we were sixteen — dance in the starlight
When we were sixteen — tales in the moonlight
When we were sixteen — everything feels right
When you are sixteen

We went down to the sea
It was just you and me
On the first night we spent alone

We were skinny dipping
Oh it was easy living
Then my heart it sank like a stone
When your dad called to say go home

When we were sixteen — dance in the starlight
When we were sixteen — tales in the moonlight
When we were sixteen — everything feels right
When you are sixteen

Those were the days when we were
Young and dumb and
We had the windows down
Playing our song
And I just wanted to get lost in the night with you

When we were sixteen — dance in the starlight
When we were sixteen — tales in the moonlight
When we were sixteen — everything feels right
When you are sixteen

When we were sixteen — dance in the starlight
When we were sixteen — tales in the moonlight
When we were sixteen — everything feels right
When you are sixteen
When you are sixteen

When we were sixteen — dance in the starlight
When we were sixteen — tales in the moonlight
When we were sixteen — everything feels right
When you are sixteen
When you are sixteen

Love on Rainy Days

It's not you
And it's not me
There's just something
In between
And it hurts
And it might get worse
Before it gets better

I've changed too
It's not all you
I just needed time to prove
But it still hurts
And it might get worse
Before it gets better

I know there's always
Love on rainy days
And it's not hard to say
I love you

I go back to see
Places we have been
But they don't feel the same
Without you

Woahhhhhhhhh
Woahhhhhhhhh
Woahhhhhhhhh

There is an art
In breaking hearts
You painted scars upon my skin
It didn't show
Beneath it all
I was trying to make things better

I know there's always
Love on rainy days
And it's not hard to say
I love you

I go back to see
Places we have been
But they don't feel the same
Without you

Woahhhhhhhhh
Woahhhhhhhhh
Woahhhhhhhhh

I go back to see
Places we have been
Nothing feels the same
Without you

I go back to see
Places we have been
They don't feel the same
Without you

I know there's always
Love on rainy days
And it's not hard to say
I love you

It's not you
And it's not me
There's just something
In between

Blue and Red Lights

Through the glass, the road
Time goes by so slow
From the inside looking out
Without a shadow of a doubt
He's older now
From the outside looking in
They don’t know where he's been
Blue and red lights
He'd never seen the warning signs
Blue and red lights
Ooooooooo
Blue and Red lights

Mother knows the truth
She sees through his lies
But from thirty thousand feet
All he sees is green beneath
And blue skies
When he touches on the floor
There's no one waiting at the door
Blue and red lights
He'd never seen the warning signs
Blue and red lights
Ooooooooo
Blue and Red lights

He looks to God to ask for forgiveness
He looks to love to feel it again
He tries to give as much as he gets
But he finds there's a part of his soul
He can't reach
Yeah he finds there's a part of his soul
He can't reach
Yeah you’ll find there's a part of your soul
You can’t see

Saltwater

This head of heavy thoughts
is just too much for me
so I wrote it down on paper
put it in an empty wine bottle
and tossed it out to sea
for someone else to read later
I know its so cliche
for me to act this way but
my broken heart is no better
than anyone’s

Sometimes it comes in waves
sometimes it comes in tears
no matter how bad it feels
saltwater always heals
just gotta get through the sting
think about the pain it kills
it washes everything
saltwater always heals

I couldn’t sleep last night
so I drove down to the shore
and swam around in darkness
and I may drown alone
but I will not turn to stone
no you won’t make me heartless

Yeah I’m still working through
what went down between me and you and
all of this loss and your last words
still get to me

Sometimes it comes in waves
sometimes it comes in tears
no matter how bad it feels
saltwater always heals
just gotta get through the sting
think about the pain it kills
it washes everything
saltwater always heals

Sometimes it comes in waves
and then it comes in tears
just gotta get through this pain
for the truth it reveals
it washes everything
saltwater always heals

Sometimes it comes in waves
sometimes it comes in tears
the tide will wash away
saltwater always heals
just gotta get through the sting
think about the pain it kills
it washes everything
saltwater always heals

Home Sweet Home

Moved to the city to make it
Chasin’ the stars in my dreams
It's in the air I can taste it
But it's getting harder to breathe

There ain't no time to be wasted
There's just one high that I need
While everyone's getting faded
Fakin’ smiles
They’re breaking down underneath

I don't know
Where our story goes

It’s Friday night
The city’s bright, it's
Dripped in gold

The traffic lights
In paradise
But it feels so cold

The pretty lies
And compromise
It gets so old

But it's all we know
The highest highs and the lowest lows
It's home sweet home

So many dreamers get jaded
It hits so hard that it bleeds
And day by day I'll take it and take it
Waiting to make history

No one knows
Where their story goes

It’s Friday night
The city’s bright, it's
Dripped in gold

The traffic lights
In paradise
But it feels so cold

The pretty lies
And compromise
It gets so old

But it's all we know

Like to rock’n’roll
It's in our bones
What we're made for

The velvet ropes
But feeling broke
And wanting more

Everyone's blowing smoke
And wearing clothes
They can’t afford

But it’s all we know
The highest highs and the lowest lows
It’s home sweet home

Ohhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhh

It’s Friday night
The city’s bright, it's
Dripped in gold

The traffic lights
In paradise
But it feels so cold

The pretty lies
And compromise
It gets so old

But it's all we know

Like to rock’n’roll
It's in our bones
What we're made for

The velvet ropes
But feeling broke
And wanting more

Everyone's blowing smoke
And wearing clothes
They can’t afford

But it’s all we know
The highest highs and the lowest lows
It’s home sweet home

Geronimo

I know a gentleman, who had a dream when he was younger
but he was too scared to jump too scared to let it all go now
he’s living alone and the neon lights with his name are broken. Broken

Staring at the sea,
you really wanna jump but it looks too deep
don’t be afraid to try you’ve got to go live before you die

Standing on the edge won’t jump
holding on to what you know
too afraid of the high ropes
and the feeling of the fall
but I, I don’t want to grow old
standing on the edge, and won’t jump.
So take my hand and be young forever
Be young forever

I know, sometimes it can be so hard
to say who you love, because it hurts to be shot down
but it’s so much worse feeling strong
and holding on holding on.

Staring at the sea
you really wanna jump but it looks too deep
don’t be afraid to try you’ve got to go live before you die

Standing on the edge won’t jump
holding on to what you know
too afraid of the high ropes
and the feeling of the fall
but I, I don’t want to grow old
standing on the edge, and won’t jump.
So take my hand and be young forever

Oh oh oh oh oh be young forever x4

Standing on the edge won’t jump
holding on to what you know
too afraid of the high ropes
and the feeling of the fall
but I, I don’t want to grow old
standing on the edge, and won’t jump.
So take my hand and be young forever
Be young forever

Oh oh oh oh oh be young forever x4

 

No More Time

No More Time

There’s a pocket in my heart again
And it’s keeping me awake
For all the reasons I can’t understand
I run away

There are people that’ll take you down
But our hearts beat just the same
You’re giving out,  About how you’re living, 
But I don’t want to know

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 

The world is full of empty promises
Spinning faster than before
You know they say "You get what you give" 
So give a little more

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love 
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go

Don’t say nothing’s going right for you, my dear
Some day you’ll have nothing left to fear
And time flies; you don’t have long to go
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love
Until you’ve got no more time to love


Sweetest Goodbye

Another night, another road
Another hotel room all on my own
Another flight, another show
But don’t you worry ‘cause
I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
I’ll be coming home

I know that it’s hard when I have to go
And I must leave you all alone
And every parting kiss is the sweetest goodbye
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming

Home to the place
Where I belong
Home to the town that I can call my own
Home to the faces
I love and know
The people that have made the man that I’ve become
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
The man that I’ve become

I know that it’s hard when I have to go
And I must leave you all alone
And every parting kiss is the sweetest goodbye
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming

As I put my bags down
I look around
At the pictures on the wall
Then I hear your laughter
It’s my favorite sound
Cause I know I am home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I know I am home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I know I am home

I know that it’s hard when I have to go
And I must leave you all alone
And every parting kiss is the sweetest goodbye
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming home
Oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh, ohhhhh, oh oh oh
Cause I’ll be coming home

 

You Should Know

Wanna see inside your heart
I wanna be there
Let me heal all your scars
Tell me your secrets


I was searching
When it’s always been you
I was hiding
Running from the truth

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can tame my soul
Nobody else comes close
 
You should know
You’ve never looked so beautiful
Say that you’ll never let go
Cause nobody else comes close

You should know

I haven’t been sleeping
Spending all my nights away
It hasn’t been easy

I was searching
When it’s always been you
I was hiding
Running from the truth

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can tame my soul
Nobody else comes close

When you feel like you’re done disguising 
And you’re tired of the compromising
And you need a hand
To guide you home

When you feel like the sky’s gonna fall, yeah
And your mind’s caught in the darkness
There’s no demons
I’d let inside us, no

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can save my soul
Nobody else comes close

You should know
You’re the reason I let myself fall
Only you can tame my soul
Nobody else comes close

You should know
You’ve never looked so beautiful
Say that you’ll never let go
Cause nobody else comes close

I thought you should know

 

Slow Dance

Ohhh place to place
And I don’t stop
Another day spent
Trying to beat the clock
Out of breath
Out of steam
Time is a race I’m running

The city lights
They come and go
Another town
Another show
Counting down the days
Til I get home

Loving you’s a slow dance
I wanna make every moment last
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause this world spins so fast
Before we know it the future is the past
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance
Loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance

One touch is all it takes
Time stands still
Foot on the brakes
Breathe you in
Soak you up
When I’m with you
I can’t get enough
Get enough, get enough

Loving you’s a slow dance
I wanna make every moment last
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause this world spins so fast
Before we know it the future is the past
I wanna take it slow
Take it slow, yeah

Cause loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance
Loving you’s a slow slow slow slow
Slow dance

My heart beats 
One

Unbelievable

I was only seventeen, you the high school beauty queen
Unbelievable
You were living on my street, oh so near but out of reach
Unbelievable
When I called to your door, never felt so scared before
Unbelievable
Stood there in your dressing gown, without a thought you shot me down
Unbelievable

I grew up and made a life, worked a job from 9 to 5
Unbelievable
Saved my cash and bought a car, spent my night at Jackie’s bar
Unbelievable

Then one night you walked in with your grin and bright blue eyes
You said "Sorry that I shot you down, that was then, I was young and this is now."
Unbelievable 
Unbelievable 

Now we’re here side by side, I’m your man and you’re my wife
Unbelievable
We have a child, twenty-two, bright blue eyes she looks like you
Unbelievable
I thank my lucky stars at night, I am yours and you are mine
Unbelievable 
And when there comes a day I die, know that you’ve been my whole life
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable
You’re unbelievable

 

 

 

 

This Christmas Time

Will You Dance With Me (This Christmas Time)

Will you dance with me under the stars
This Christmas time
Will you keep me warm down by the fire
This Christmas time

Each year the friends we love
All gather 'round
We watch the tree light up
In the heart of town

Then we'll walk on home through the cold and snow
This Christmas time
Dreaming of the ones we used to know
This Christmas time

Each year my wish has never
Quite come true
But this time my only wish is to spend
The night with you

Will you love me just like I love you
This Christmas time

Will you dance with me under the stars
This Christmas time
Will you keep me warm down by the fire
This Christmas time

Each year my wish has never
Quite come true
But this time my only wish is to spend
The night with you

Will you love me just like I love you
This Christmas time

 

Irish Christmas

Cobbled streets, good friends we'll meet
Winter’s drawing in, days are getting cold back home
Fields of green, like you’ve never seen
Turning white with snow, painted barley leaves calling me home

When the lights are shining bright in Dublin town
You will see the glowing love that’s all around
People’ll be dancing and singing, all the bells they’ll be ringing
Songs of joy from the land that I belong
This Irish Christmas

Evening tea with the family,
Old traditions hold, hold us together, young and old
By midnight mass, all the gifts are wrapped
On Christmas Eve we’ll be singing Oh Holy Night

When the lights are shining bright in Dublin town
You will see the glowing love that’s all around
People’ll be dancing and singing, all the bells they’ll be ringing
Songs of joy from the land that I belong
This Irish Christmas

Fields of green like you’ve never seen
Turning white with snow, painted barley leaves calling me home

When the lights are shining bright in Dublin town
You will see the glowing love that’s all around
People’ll be dancing and singing, all the bells they’ll be ringing
Songs of joy from the land that I belong
This Irish Christmas
