Lyrics

How many times can we say we’ll give it one last try When do we admit we’re never gonna get this right More than lovers, now somehow less than friends We tear each other to pieces at the end And maybe it’s time to say that it’s so Cause it’s all messed up And the hurt’s tossed ‘round We could save ourselves If we stop dragging each other down More than a hint of malice lingers on our lips We’ve got ignorance in spades, we’ve used up all the bliss Punch drunk fighters stumble but don’t go down No neutral corner now, no bell to save us in this round Long past the time to have thrown in the towel Cause it’s all messed up And the hurt’s tossed ‘round We could save ourselves If we stop dragging each other down Cause it’s all messed up And the hurt’s tossed ‘round We could save ourselves If we stop dragging each other down It’s all messed up It’s all messed up written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005 all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

My best friend told me I should stay away He said “Don’t board a ship that’s already sinking.” Suggested that I find me someone else Yeah he tried to change my way of thinking He told me there was something wrong about you He told me there was something wrong about you I wouldn’t listen though and so we began And I felt I’d made the right decision I saw the part of you you hid from the world The part that my friend had said was missing I told him he was oh so wrong about you I told him he was oh so wrong about you But he planted a doubt and soon it did sprout There was something in your voice on the phone Even as you said you were lonely without me I couldn’t shake the feeling that you weren’t alone As I pulled in the driveway I was starting to think I was being paranoid and insane When from the bedroom I heard your voice Calling out my best friend’s name How could I have been oh so wrong about you How could I have been oh so wrong about you How could I have been oh so wrong about you… two (too?) written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

You think every day is more of the same And the sun don’t feel any different from the rain You never know you’re lonely until you’re not alone And if it’s where the heart is, how come you’re never home? Lying awake in bed, you can only dream of sleep You are standing still, the sidewalk spins beneath your feet Each day fades away, slow into the night Stars begin to fall, you’re not far behind As for your friends, well they’ve all settled down Some think you’re lost, it’s more that you’re still unfound A destination seems to be something you can’t requite You’re always leaving, but you never do arrive Lying awake in bed, you can only dream of sleep You are standing still, the sidewalk spins beneath your feet Each day fades away, slow into the night Stars begin to fall, you’re not far behind Lying awake in bed, you can only dream of sleep You are standing still, the sidewalk spins beneath your feet Each day fades away, slow into the night Stars begin to fall… stars begin to fall… stars begin to fall You’re not far behind written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

For a while we’ve found it easier To stay than to go Really nothing’s been keeping us together But a desire not to be alone This moment’s long been building up And should come as no surprise I see no reason for a long farewell When all that’s needed is “goodbye” If I was not yours and you were not mine Just someone to occupy the time Then there’s no need for tears to be cried If I was not yours and you were not mine I won’t say we’ll still be friends That probably won’t be the case I’m just being honest here ‘Cause we were never friends in the first place That’s not meant to come off cruel It only stings because it’s true It’s something you know as well as I do As well as I do If I was not yours and you were not mine Just someone to occupy the time Then there’s no need for tears to be cried If I was not yours and you were not mine I was not yours and you were not mine Find someone new to occupy your time Here we part at the end of the line I was not yours and you were not mine written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

Folded hands A pair of hearts Cut them out In little stars Pin them up Upon the night Next to that lone Slow-blinking eye And put the world away Tumble through A fever dream A message there In the mirror steam It’s hard to find The difference Between truth And consequence So put the words away There are ghosts In this bed Whisper what Can not be said Louder than The trumpet’s call A leap of faith Starts with a fall And puts the world away written by Dave Sills & Gerald Dowd published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

She said, “Icicles outside the window Look like prison bars to me And even if the sun melts them It won’t really mean that I’m free. I’m still locked inside my head Tangled up in my own wires Seems nothing is left but the ashes In the place where I once kept my fire” Staring down the heavens, begging for some change Nothing left in her pockets but a little spare rain Swept all her best intentions Under the rug like dust Left that dream out in the rain again Now it’s gone to rust She feels like a Sunday driver Who’s always movin’ too slow Not really sure where she’s going And so she’s all over the road Staring down the heavens, begging for some change Nothing left in her pockets but a little spare rain A little spare rain... she says, “Give me that rain” Staring down the heavens, begging for some change Nothing left in her pockets but a little spare rain Icicles outside her window Have melted away in the sun She still keeps herself as a prisoner Of a heart that is frozen Frozen and numb Frozen and numb written by Dave Sills & Chris Walke published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

Down in my room having a mid-day life crisis Every single day for the last ten years or so Staring through my reflection in the mirror Asking him the questions Though I’m sure that he don’t know And static is the only thing that I’m receiving Numb is the only thing that I’ve been feeling It’s only out of habit my heart’s still beating at all If I’ve learned anything at all from my history It’s that I should always expect the worst But I have found that just because you see it coming Does not mean that ain’t still gonna hurt And static is the only thing that I’m receiving Numb is the only thing that I’ve been feeling It’s only out of habit my heart’s still beating at all Always end up breaking no matter how far I bend Can’t see the point in starting When I’m worrying about the end And static is the only thing that I’m receiving Numb is the only thing that I’ve been feeling It’s only out of habit my heart’s still beating at all At all It’s only out of habit that this heart still beats at all written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

There’s a sign posted by the side of the road It says four hundred and twenty-seven miles to go Can’t get nothing but static on the radio Drops of rain start tappin’ on the windshield In each little drop another mystery revealed Let the wind blow strong - I will refuse to yield ‘Cause I need to be where you are I need to be where you are I filled the car up at a dusty truck stop Splashed some water on my face Grabbed some coffee black and hot When a stranger asked me, “Hey man, what time have you got?” And that simple question suddenly seemed so complex I started wondering just how much time do we get I’ve already wasted so much, and that I’ll always regret ‘Cause I need to be where you are I need to be where you are Well I want so badly to look upon your face Feel your arms around me in a warm embrace 'Cause only your love, can restore my faith I need to be where you are I need to be where you are Took me so long to see That I need to be where you are written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

Waking up in the morning Used to really get you down Another day as King of the Fools Your head hanging heavy with that crown But now you feel better And you’re gonna abdicate your throne Now that you found someone To end your reign of being alone And whenever you hold her near All your clouds just disappear And in her you’ve found the one Whose gonna bring the sun to your day Before you met her You used to feel anonymous Alone even among your friends Like they were all strangers on a bus Something inside you Nobody else has ever found Ya didn’t even know it was lost Not until she came around And whenever you hold her near All your clouds just disappear And in her you’ve found the one Whose gonna bring the sun to your day Now for me it’s always raining Pouring down on my parade And you know why I’m complaining She used to bring the sun my way And whenever you hold her near All my clouds just reappear Now she’s with you who’ll be the one Whose gonna bring the sun Who’ll be the one Whose gonna bring the sun To my day written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)

Lyrics

I’ve been patient, but my resolve is fading Like the moon in a morning sky I’m still standing here at the station But the trains all pass me by Something’s gotta give Something’s gotta break Something’s standing in the way Maybe she slipped by while I was distracted Have I missed my one shot at the dream? I’m feeling empty - if this is a test, I’m failing Or is that how you want it to seem? Something’s gotta give Something’s gotta break Something’s standing in the way I wish you’d take from me a rib And craft her like you did In the garden long ago It’s not good to be alone That’s what you said Something’s gotta give Something’s gotta break Something’s standing in the way Something’s gotta give I feel like I’m gonna break Tell me what’s standing in the way… of love written by Dave Sills published by Dave Sills (ASCAP) (c) (p) 2005, all rights reserved From the album Waiting Room (WSR 003)
