Phillip Phillips – Gone Gone gone

Posted: October 28, 2013 in Lyrics
Tags:

When life leaves you high and dry
I’ll be at your door tonight
If you need help, if you need help.
I’ll shut down the city lights,
I’ll lie, cheat, I’ll beg and bribe
To make you well, to make you well.

When enemies are at your door
I’ll carry you away from war
If you need help, if you need help.
Your hope dangling by a string
I’ll share in your suffering
To make you well, to make you well.

Give me reasons to believe
That you would do the same for me.

And I would do it for you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You will never sleep alone.
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.

When you fall like a statue
I’m gon’ be there to catch you
Put you on your feet, you on your feet.
And if your well is empty
Not a thing will prevent me.
Tell me what you need, what do you need?

I surrender honestly.
You’ve always done the same for me.

So I would do it for you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on,
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You will never sleep alone.
I love you long after you’re gone
And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.

You’re my back bone.
You’re my cornerstone.
You’re my crutch when my legs stop moving.
You’re my head start.
You’re my rugged heart.
You’re the pulse that I’ve always needed.
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating.
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating.
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating.
Like a drum my heart never stops beating…

For you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on.
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You will never sleep alone.
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
Baby, I’m not moving on,
I love you long after you’re gone.
For you, for you.
You will never sleep alone.
I love you long, long after you’re gone.

Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating.
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating.
Like a drum, baby, don’t stop beating.
Like a drum my heart never stops beating for you.

And long after you’re gone, gone, gone.
I love you long after you’re gone, gone, gone.

My Darkest Days – Can’t Forget You

When it’s said and done, you’re the only one (You’re the only one)
And when it’s said and done, you’re the only one, you’re the only one

Whoever said this pain, would ever go away?
Didn’t know what it meant to, be here without you
Is everything you see, reminding you of me?
Does it hurt when you breathe too? cause it does when I do, cause it does when I do

[Chorus:]
When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can’t forget you
It doesn’t matter when I try it happens anyway,
It’s been forever and I can’t forget you
With every single day, it won’t go away
The way I feel about you
And when it’ said and done, you’re the only one
And I can’t regret you, so I can’t forget you

When it’s said and done, you’re the only one (You’re the only one)
And when it’s said and done, you’re the only one, you’re the only one

I hate to feel this way, my days all feel the same
And yesterday was proof, that tomorrow will too
No matter what they say, can’t drink it all away
Cause all that I do, is think about you, is think about you

[Chorus:]
When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can’t forget you
It doesn’t matter when I try it happens anyway,
It’s been forever and I can’t forget you
With every single day, it won’t go away
The way I feel about you
And when it’ said and done, you’re the only one
And I can’t regret you, so I can’t forget you

Stop haunting my dreams
Please set me free
Stop haunting my dreams
Please set me free
(You’re the only one)

[Chorus:]
When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can’t forget you
It doesn’t matter when I try it happens anyway,
It’s been forever and I can’t forget you
With every single day, it won’t go away
The way I feel about you
And when it’ said and done, you’re the only one
And I can’t regret you
Stop haunting my dreams (It’s been forever and I can’t forget you)
Please set me free (It’s been forever and I can’t forget you)
Stop haunting my dreams (It’s been forever and I can’t forget you)
Please set me free (It’s been forever and I can’t forget you)

Howie Day – Collide

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You’re barely waking
And I’m tangled up in you
Yeah

I’m open, you’re closed
Where I follow, you’ll go
I worry I won’t see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I’m quiet you know
You make a first impression
I’ve found I’m scared to know I’m always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Don’t stop here
I lost my place
I’m close behind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

Who’s that calling ?

who’s that who can show the way ?

The child inside,

The child who lives still in your eyes

ne ho ne ye he hiyo, ne ho ne yehe ha

ne ho ne ye he hiyo, neho neho nehe hehe

Who’s that dying,

Trying for a space in the cage you call your life

Who’s that crying

Crying out just what it is you’ve thrown away

it’s the. . .

The child inside,

The child who lives still in your eyes

ne ho ne ye he hiyo, ne ho ne yehe ha

ne ho ne ye he hiyo, neho neho nehe hehe

Who’s that dancing

Laughing crying living every day by day by day by day

It’s the. . .

The child inside, its the child who lives still in your eyes

ne ho ne ye he hiyo, ne ho ne yehe ha

ne ho ne ye he hiyo, neho neho nehe hehe

Secret of the sun is in your eyes

Take the power from your dreams and fly

Children know it’s magick that makes the world go round …

The Script – Breakeven

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing
Just prayed to a God that I don’t believe in
‘Cause I got time while she got freedom
‘Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even

Her best days were some of my worst
She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first
While I’m wide awake she’s no trouble sleeping
‘Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even… even… no

What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you?
And what am I supposed to say when I’m all choked up and you’re ok?
I’m falling to pieces, yeah,
I’m falling to pieces

They say bad things happen for a reason
But no wise words gonna stop the bleeding
‘Cause she’s moved on while I’m still grieving
And when a heart breaks no it don’t break even, even… no

What am I gonna to do when the best part of me was always you?
And what am I supposed to say when I’m all choked up and you’re ok?
I’m falling to pieces, yeah,
I’m falling to pieces, yeah,
I’m falling to pieces
One still in love while the other one’s leaving
I’m falling to pieces
(‘Cause when a heart breaks no it don’t break even)

Oh, you got his heart and my heart and none of the pain
You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
Now I’m tryna make sense of what little remains, ooh
‘Cause you left me with no love and honour to my name.

I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing
Just prayed to a God that I don’t believe in
‘Cause I got time while she got freedom
‘Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don’t break…
No, it don’t break
No, it don’t break even, no

What am I gonna do when the best part of me was always you?
And what am I supposed to say when I’m all choked up and you’re ok?
(Oh glad you’re okay now)
I’m falling to pieces yeah
(Oh I’m glad you’re okay)
I’m falling to pieces yeah
(One still in love while the other one’s leaving)
I’m falling to pieces
(‘Cause when a heart breaks, no, it don’t break even)

Oh, it don’t break even no
Oh, it don’t break even no
Oh, it don’t break even no

Ek het al baie goed verloor en dit nooit ooit weer gevind nie
Ek het al baie vir my ma gese ek is nie meer ‘n kind nie
Die lewe is te hard en ek verstaan nie meer die punt nie
Ek staan langs groot hoop hout maar ek het nie meer ‘n flint nie
Ek kry koud op my eie, ek soek eintlik net ‘n klein bietjie warmte
Almal is ryk van die liefde en ek’s al weer die armste
Sommige dae voel ek of ek doodgaan van die hongerte
Daars ‘n lee kol in my maag waar ek wegkruip in die donkerte
Ek’s gebreek van binne soos al my speelgoed van toe ek klein was
As ek vandag wegstap sal al my goed pas in ‘n klein tas
Ek soek net ‘n klein tydjie sodat ek die as van my kan afwas
Maar die soldate op die muur bombardeer my met traangas
Ek le onder ‘n lappieskombers en probeer nog blokkies aanlas
Maar daar’s ‘n kwaai oom langs my bed en hy sê vir my staan vas
So ek trek die kombers oor my kop en le oop voete
En stap die lang pad in my pa se groot skoene

As ons staan op einde van die langpad langs die spoor
Daars net donkerte daarvoor, ek staan en bewe
Dit raak swarter en daar’s net stilte wat ek hoor
Hou my hand styf vas lanks jou sy
Is jy nog lief vir my?
sal jy my by die hemelpoorte kry?

Ons hou vas aan mekaar maar niemand gaan ooit regtig joune wees nie
Ons skryf briewe vir mekaar wat ons nooit regtig lees nie
Want daar’s altyd een verloorder in russian roulette
Ek moet uitgaan ek moet werk maar ek sit vas in die bed
Ek stap rond en soek sitplek in leë gebouens
Ek probeer myself vind in drank en leë verhoudings
Ek sit en skryf gedigte maar word my gedigte digkuns
En ek skree volle bors in die aand met my kop in die kussing
Ek le vir ure in die bad met my kop onder die water
Ek slaap elke oggend laat want die wereld kan wag tot later
Ek moet wag nie aanbeweeg onslae raak van my gevoelens
Hoe ek stap ek raak meegevoer met aksies sonder bybedoelings
Ek sit alleen op een punt van die wipplank
Ek bid al weer vir een sitvlak, maar ek sit lank
En wag vir iemand om op te spring aan die eenkant
Maar die vingers van my gevoelens krap diep in my verstand

As ons staan op einde van die langpad langs die spoor
Daars net donkerte daarvoor, ek staan en bewe
Dit raak swarter en daar’s net stilte wat ek hoor
Hou my hand styf vas lanks jou sy
Is jy nog lief vir my?
sal jy my by die hemelpoorte kry?

Ek het al ver gewen en baie ver verloor
Ek het al baie gevoel of die lewe my versmoor
(Sal jy my by die hemelpoorte kry)
Ekt al baie gesit op die bokant van ‘n berg
Ekt al baie gesit in die voorkant van die kerk

Vat my terug na die langkloof en my ouma se plaas
Ek wil saam met my suster die skape in die kraal injaag
Ek wil sit op my oupa se skoot en stories hoor van die verlede
Ek wil rondhardloop in die gras tot ek lam word in die knieë

Ons staan en luister hoe die Here en die duiwel oor ons stry
Die hartseer is verby
Op die ou-eind is al wat ek wil hoor rol oor jou tong
Jy wil by my bly
Sal jy my by die hemelpoorte kry?
