Sailing

CHORUS:

Sailing, sailing, sailing far across the ocean floor.

 

V1: 

I’ve been playing with ruby hearts

right from the start. (Oh nooo)

Been saying stop chasin' clouds

stop goin' around. (And around)

 

CHORUS:

Sailing, sailing, sailing far across the ocean floor.

 

V2: 

Been pickin' stones for some time

tryin’ to find the light. (Oh ooo)

Feel like tourmaline, dragged by the wind

never reaching ground. (Woahh)

 

Wind's whisperin' precious pearls

think I'm finding out the truth.

Past midnight hours, I feel the peace, 

aquamarine. (Hey yeah)

 

CHORUS:

Sailing, sailing, sailing far across the ocean floor.

 

BRIDGE: 

So many nights, so many nights, 

tried to find myself in the sunrise.

Searchin' for direction but never in time.

The sunset seems to hide the waves of my

life. So I'm...

 

CHORUS:

Sailing, Sailing,  Sailing, Sailing.

Sailing, sailing, sailing towards the golden open shores.

Cry No More

V1:

I sit and look across the room and I

keep thinking to myself 

I’m starin' at the empty space

I left behind when I left your place.

 

Thinkin' of the night I left your room

leaving a hat I'd never see again.

Don't even know where to go.

No place to hide from this sad show.

 

CHORUS:

I don't wanna cry no more.

I don't wanna feel less no more.

 

V2:

You made me just feel like a movie star.

The way we met you had me from the start.

And now I don’t know what you say.

You tore my heart in every way.

 

And I'll forever look at you when I

look at the city lights that shine bright.

Thinkin' of all the taxi cabs

I took and now, it just feels bad.

 

BRIDGE:

I don't wanna be cryin’.

Don’t wanna feel like dyin’.

And though we probably wouldn't have made it through.

I was suppossed to be with you.

 

CHORUS (longer version):

I don't wanna cry no more.

I don't wanna feel less no more.

See I don't even wanna sing this song

cause we didn't stay where we belonged. 

I don’t wanna cry no more.

And I’m glad I finally made it through.

And the only thing I left is you.

I dont wannna cry no more. 

Haunted

V1: 

Go to sleep.

I have my dreams to keep.                   

I danced around the 

fire in my soul.

 

PRE-CHORUS:

Sometimes love  tries hard to turn hearts to stone.

Ooo, you’re haunted.

 

CHORUS:

Star-crossed lovers, they pass you by.

 

V2:

Jealousy is  

jaded   green.

Faded dreams 

bleed at your feet.

 

PRE-CHORUS:

Stillness finds the silence they cry out loud.

Ooo, the haunted.

 

CHORUS:

Star-crossed lovers, they pass you by.

Beautiful Skies

V1: 

Looking through far and wide

not a cloud in sight.

Our days are full of love and sunshine

and in your eyes, I see, beautiful skies.

 

The way you listen to my cries

the way you know my sighs.

You keep my soul satisfied

that’s why, in your eyes I see, beautiful skies.

 

CHORUS: 

Deep in your eyes I see beautiful skies.

Hope running high, in those beautiful eyes.

 

V2: 

We’re drivin’ west into the sunset.

Purple colors to forget.

And we don’t dare miss the chance to kiss

or ride the wave of the wind.

The way your spirit makes me laugh

causin’ a tornado spin.

 

CHORUS: 

Deep in your eyes I see beautiful skies.

Hope running wild in those beautiful eyes.

 

BRIDGE:

Out of the blue, 

we’re makin’ moves,.

Out in the field 

me and you.

 

V3: 

We’re layin’ on the grass under the stars

knowing the best things are free.

And I hear melodies from the heart

close to you is where they sing.

 

CHORUS: 

Deep in your eyes I see beautiful skies.

Love’s flyin’ high in those beautiful eyes.

 

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful skies.
