On My Way Here lyrics - clay aiken

I took my first step
On that black and white kitchen floor
I sometimes wonder if that house
Is even there, anymore
I had my first glimpse of love
When I was five
I watched two people split apart
But still the three of us survived

I've seen the best
I've seen the worst
I wouldn't change what I've been through
I've touched the sky
I've hit the wall
But I did what I had to
Ooooohhhh

On my way here
Where I am now
I've learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I've fallen hard
But I've been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here.

Oh yeah yeaaah

My address has changed
Almost every year
I've found that standing still
Can quickly make a lifetime disappear
I'd rather try and fail
A thousand times denied
And this, whenever you feel pain
It lets you know that you're alive

I've been a fool
I've been afraid
Yeah, I've been loved
I've been lied to
I've been wrong
And I've been right
I stood up when I had to

Yeah Yeahhhh

On my way here
Where I am now
I've learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I've fallen hard
But I've been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here.

No guarantees
I believed that I would find
An open door or a light
To lead me to the other side
I guess that is why

On my way here
Where I am now
I've learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I've fallen hard
But I've been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here

Yeahhhh
Oooooohh

Ashes lyrics - clay aiken

Someone told me
What doesn't kill you only
Makes you stronger, sets you free
From all that held you down

With all my heart, I believed
The ember burning
Was a dream deep in me
When everything went up in flames
I still walked away

[Chorus]
Turn around and see what love's done for me
You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold
Maybe love requires walking through the fire
To set me free, so I could rise up from the ashes

I was broken
A million pieces left to hold
I was frozen
My heart left out in the cold

Looking back I can see
How the voice of reason
Kept reminding me
I was never good enough somehow
Try and remind me now

[Chorus]
Turn around and see what love's done for me
You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold
Maybe love requires walking through the fire
To set me free, so I could rise up from the ashes

Send it up in flames
Let it light the sky
Now that I know pain...I'm more alive
I'm more alive

[Chorus]
Turn around and see what love's done for me
You would not believe the way I used to be, so cold
Maybe love requires walking through the fire
To set me free, so I could rise up from the ashes

Everything I Don't Need lyrics - clay aiken

Get out of my dreams
There's no room left
Get out of my bed.
we did goodbye yesterday
Don't you think I heard what you said

You want to much
You play to hard

Well, well you invade my morning light again
Don't wanna answer the phone
I went to sleep last night angry
I'm sure I was alone
You know me well
Always ring my bell

And tell me what would I want from you
Cause you tried so hard to be who you are
but there's no way I understand what you do
The last of a dying breed
Well we've come this far,
But it has to stop
You're everything
Everything I don't need.

I don't wanna listen to answers
To the questions I didn't ask
It's all about you I wanna move out
before the breakdown starts.

It's all wrong
Won't you let me go

And tell me what would I want from you
Cause you tried so hard to be who you are
but there's no way I understand what you do
The last of a dying breed
Well we've come this far,
But it has to stop
You're everything
Everything I don't need.

You fill my head
You block my view
It's killing me
You're everything I don't need

If it's all I do I'll be free cause you've taken everything
Everything I don't need
What would I want from you ohhhh
Cause you tried so hard to be who you are
but there's no way I understand what you do.
The last of a dying breed
Well we've come this far,
but it has to stop
You're everything
ohhhh
everything I don't need.

Last of a dying breed
Everything I don't need

Something About Us lyrics - clay aiken

Stop the music, play the song
We'll dance together all night long
The spotlight glows, somehow it knows,
That there's something about us
Something about us

People smile when they walk by
There's too much magic to deny
A fool can see we're meant to be
'cause there's something about us,
something about us

The words on every poet's tongue
Every love song ever sung
about us, it's about us
From Romeo and Juliet,
to plays they haven't written yet
It's old and new, it's a classic tale of two
of our perfectly perfect love

You can see it in our ways
in how we spend our nights and days
A crazy laugh, a photograph
There's just something about
something about us

The words on every poet's tongue
Every love song ever sung
about us, it's about us
From Romeo and Juliet,
to plays they haven't written yet
It's old and new, it's a classic tale of two
of our perfectly perfect love

So stop the music, play the song
And we'll dance together all night long
We'll reminisce of moments like this
Cause there's something about us
something about us
yes, there something about us.... s

Falling lyrics - clay aiken

Silence
Long lost friend
You've come to me again
Night comes closing in
And the loneliness within

I'm older
Should be wiser
Still I never seem to learn
I'm closer than ever
To the edge

[Chorus]
And I'm falling
I'm falling
From the world I used to know
Been trying to hold on
To something for so long
Now this never-ending dream won't let go
I am falling...

Restless
I lie awake
And try to escape
Memories that never sleep
A taste of bitter sweet

I'll hold on to forever
Still I'm stuck in yesterday
I'm closer than ever
To the edge

[Chorus]
And I'm falling
I'm falling
From the world I used to know
Been trying to hold on
To something for so long
Now this never-ending dream won't let go
I am falling...

Come back and wake me up again
I can't face this world alone
Cause in my dream
I return and then
I'm falling, I'm falling

Where I Draw The Line lyrics - clay aiken

It's all as it should be
You're the best thing that ever happened to me
I melt every time we kiss
I never felt anything like this
It's almost too perfect
And just like the thunder brings the rain
Something beautiful brings on the pain

It looks like it's going to be the same this time around
I want to let you in but I don't know how
I've been here one to many times
Seems like whenever I let somebody get this close
I'm right back where I got hurt the most
And that's why, oh that's why
Around my heart is where I draw the line

I wish I could just forget
Not have one more regret behind me to remind me
What I've given up
Could I ever live with this
Knowing that I might have missed my last chance
For love to find me
I could stay here drowning in the rain
Unless you have the strength to save me
Nothing's going to change

And it's going to be the same this time around
I want to let you in but I don't know how
I've been here one to many times
Seems whenever I let somebody get this close
I'm right back where I got hurt the most
And that's why, oh that's why
Around my heart is where I draw the line

Either you're gonna rescue me
Or you're gonna be the death of me

It's going to be the same this time around
I want to let you in but I don't know how
I've been here one to many times
Whenever I let somebody get this close
I'm right back where I got hurt the most
And that's why, oh that's why
Around my heart is where I draw the line

Around my heart is where I draw the line

The Real Me lyrics - clay aiken

Foolish heart looks like we're here again
Same old game of plastic smile
Don't let anybody in
Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break
How much will they take before I'm empty
Do I let it show, does anybody know?

But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
Oh, cause you see the real me
Painted on, life is behind a mask
Self-inflicted circus clown
I'm tired of the song and dance
Living a charade, always on parade
What a mess I've made of my existence
But you love me even now
And still I see somehow
But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
Oh, cause you see the real me
Wonderful, beautiful is what you see
When you look at me
You're turning the tattered fabric of my life into
A perfect tapestry
I just wanna be me
But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I'm loosening my grasp
There's no need to mask my frailty
Oh, cause you see the real me
And you love me just as I am
Wonderful, beautiful is what you see
When you look at me

Weight Of The World lyrics - clay aiken

Has anybody else but me
Ever felt this way before
Like the world is spinning much too fast
And you're falling through the floor

Struck by lightning
It's so frightening
When the morning feels like war
Unbreakable, don't you wish you were unbreakable

[Chorus]
So when you fall down down down
Don't get down on you
Don't you know that everybody gets down down down
Why you tryin' to carry the weight of the world

Some folks say that we've been blessed
And I know deep down they're right
But when you're feelin' cold, alone and desperate
And can't get through the night

It seems the only time you test your wings
Is when you're crashing through the sky
Unbreakable, don't you wish you were unbreakable

[Chorus]
So when you fall down down down
Don't get down on you
Don't you know that everybody gets down down down
Why you tryin' to carry the weight of the world

Has anybody else but me ever felt this way before

[Chorus]
So when you fall down down down
Don't get down on you
Don't you know that everybody gets down down down
Why you tryin' to carry the weight of the world

I know it's hard to see
From where you are right now
I know it's hard to breathe
Just let the world go round round round

As Long As We're Here lyrics - clay aiken

Why do we have to fight?
Why can't spend our time... trying?
I wanna be close to you
Keep love from slipping through... my hands
The words said in anger aimed at someone
Are hard to take back once the damage is done

Let's stop now....

As long as we're here... alive on this earth
I'm gonna love you... for all that it's worth
And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

Let's make the most of of our time
As long as we're here... (yeah...)

Some people live their lives
Holding their fears... inside them
Afraid to build windows
To let the light of the world in...
They hide in the darkness of self-imposed walls
If they could just tear them down... they'd have it all

As long as we're here... alive on this earth
I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth
And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

Let's make the most of of our time
As long as we're here... (yeah... yeah... yeah...)

When you're with me.... I breathe easy
You are my need .. right now love me

As long as we're here (as long as we're here)
I'm gonna love you (I'm gonna love you)
And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

As long as we're here... alive on this earth
I'm gonna love you for all that it's worth
And one of these days ... we're gonna take off and fly...

Let's make the most of of our time
Oh.. make the most of our time
As long as we're here...
As long as we're here...

Sacrificial Love lyrics - clay aiken

Sometimes I feel like
I'm chasing the shadows in your eyes
Losing my footing and looking for something
I recognize

You tell me you're here for forever
But act like you're passing through
Which one's the real you
Which one's the real you

[Chorus]
Are you only
Practicing until you find the real thing
Taking up space
Until you find yourself that perfect face
Are you looking
Over my shoulder
Am I enough
Or just your sacrificial love

I know when we started
That I kind of talked you into this
I was good for the moment
But now something's missing
From your kiss

I see you lying beside me
But I feel you're moving on
Which one's the real you
Which one's the real you

[Chorus]
Are you only
Practicing until you find the real thing
Taking up space
Until you find yourself that perfect face
Are you looking
Over my shoulder
Am I enough
Or just your sacrificial love

Do I have to spill my tears
Teach you how to say goodbye
If that's not what I am to you
Then what am I
What am I

[Chorus]
Are you only
Practicing until you find the real thing
Taking up space
Until you find yourself that perfect face
Are you looking
Over my shoulder
Am I enough
Or just your sacrificial love

Grace Of God lyrics - clay aiken

Some folks always get the rough ride
Seem they end up on the wrong side
Constant battle just to survive on any given day
I watched a mother on my TV
Hungry children that she can't feed
Still I've got everything that I need
And that just don't seem right
That I sleep safe tonight
There's got to be some rhyme or reason why
We turn away and we close our eyes
If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering
There but for the grace of God go I
Mother Earth is down on her knees
Poison rivers run to dead seas
Cities eating up the green fields
We never question why
How truth turns into lies
There's got to be some rhyme or reason why
We turn away and we close our eyes
If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering
There but for the grace of God go I
Sometimes it's hard to believe
In a truth that you can't even see
But faith holds the hope for the world
And I know, I know
There's got to be some rhyme or reason why
We turn away and we close our eyes
If I could find some way that we could justify all of this suffering
There but for the grace of God go I
When I'm thinking it's a bad day
Feels like nothing's going my way
I pass a wreck out on the freeway
And I pray that they survived
There but for the grace of God go I

Lover All Alone lyrics - clay aiken

Maybe I've convinced myself
I've really been in love
And I've been wrong all along
For all I know the feeling
And the picture that I've tried
So hard to find isn't mine

Could be its all just a waiting game
Wanna share my everything

And on my own
It's hard to tell my heart it will be alright
This love it holds will one day find a home
As hard as love can be
It's harder still it seems
To be a lover all alone without love

Picking up the pieces makes me wonder if
I only build it all to watch it fall
The faster it can go away it means the less of me
Is gone to stay and I'm ok

But lonesome tomorrow comes anyway
I'm alone for another day,
Another day

And on my own
It's hard to tell my heart it will be alright
That this love it holds will one day find a home
As hard as love can be
It's harder still it seems
To be a lover all alone without love

And on my own
It's hard to tell my heart it will be alright
That this love it holds will one day find a home
As hard as love can be
It's harder still it seems
To be a lover all alone without love
A lover all alone without love

Maybe I've convinced myself
I've really been in love
But I've been wrong all along

Forget I Ever Knew You lyrics - clay aiken

I lie awake while the rest of the world sleeps happily
I'm tossing and turning in the dark
I try to make some sense of the mess that calls itself my life
Just wish I knew where I should start

I'd go back in time if I could
and erase you from my mind for good
I get so tired of trying
Maybe I should just...

Fly away let my heart pretend
My dream comes true and the story ends
I get on my feet and start again
And forget I ever knew you
I leave the past and rise above
I let you go and fall in love
With everything that I'm made of
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you

I turn the page I've got nothing to say but I'll start writing anyway
Something that gets me moving on again
Stuck in this place I'm putting one foot in front of the other foot
Maybe today I'll let this be over and done again

I'd make up my mind if I could
And leave this all behind me for good
I'm getting tired of trying
So maybe I should just...

Fly away let my heart pretend
My dream comes true and the story ends
I get on my feet and start again
And forget I ever knew you
I leave the past and rise above
I let you go and fall in love
With everything that I'm made of
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you

The sun can shine a little brighter now
I'm gonna make it on my own somehow
And I will start feeling alive again, yeah

I'll start living life with no regrets
'Cause the best hasn't happened yet
I'm just fine with you out of my life

I'll just, fly away let my heart pretend
My dream comes true and the story ends
I get on my feet and start again
And forget I ever knew you
I leave the past and rise above
I let you go and fall in love
With everything that I'm made of
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you
And forget I ever knew you

I never knew you
Say goodbye to all I've been through
And forget I ever knew you

It's In Everyone Of Us lyrics - clay aiken

It's in everyone of us
to be wise
Find your heart
open up both your eyes,
We can all know everything
without ever knowing why,
It's in everyone of us
by and by ..

It's in everyone of us
to be wise,
Find your heart
open up both your eyes,
We can all know everything
without ever knowing why,
It's in everyone of us
by and by ..

It's in everyone of us
I just remembered
it's like I been sleeping for years,
I'm not awake as I can be
but my seeing is better,
I can see ..
through the tears,
I've been realizing that,
I bought this ticket
and watching only half of the show,
There is scenery and lights
and a cast of thousands,
Who all know
what I know,
And it's good
that it's so ..

It's in everyone of us
to be wise
Find your heart
open up both your eyes,
We can all know everything
without ever knowing why,
It's in everyone of us
by and by,
It's in everyone of us
by and by..
