Dragonfly (Lyrics)

1. The Secret to Love is on the Radio

If all is fair in love and war
You play to win just to even the score
No one ever wins but we come back for more
The more we talk, the deeper we get
Into the middle of a hole of regret
It breaks my heart to hear you get so upset

You can’t see it, it’s hard to explain
but there’s a way off of this runaway train
A love song with some rock and roll
The secret to love is on the radio
on the radio
The secret to love is on the radio

We push and pull through the give-and-take
Act like a fool just for argument sake
Too stubborn to admit when we’ve made a mistake
Between the lines of right and wrong
The other cheek doesn’t feel so strong
But there’s one thing that can help us get along

You can’t see it, it’s hard to explain
but there’s a way off of this runaway train
A love song with some rock and roll
The secret to love is on the radio
When you hear it its hard to define
it has a way to settle your troubled mind
Motown funk or blue eyed soul
The secret to love is on the radio
On the radio
The secret to love is on the radio

Love’s only tragic when you believe its so
A simple kind of magic takes you where you want to go
On the radio
The secret to love is on the radio
Is on the radio
Is on the radio
Is on the radio
Is on the radio

 

2. Ordinary Days

He was born on a Saturday
On the 23rd day of May
He lived a simple life as a farmers son
He never did harm to anyone
He worked some long days when he was a kid
So he could grow up strong like his father did

He longed to be a pilot so he could touch the clouds
He loved the thought of living free for crying out loud
The best days of his life seemed far away
from these ordinary days

She was born on a rainy night
surrounded by all the city lights
She was the daughter of a millionaire
She lived her life without a care
But, she’ll never know what it’s like to walk alone
Beyond the guarded gates of her parent’s home

She longed to be an actress
she knew how to pretend
that love is more than a perfect smile
if it feels good in the end
The best days of her life seemed far away
From these ordinary days
She was born Sagittarius
Her mother was very serious
In a small north Texas town
You find a good man and settle down
But that girl didn’t seem to fit the mold
Life was more than settling down and growing old

She longed to be a doctor
Where she could lend a hand
She won’t stand up at the altar
In the shadow of a man
The best days of her life seemed far away
from these ordinary days

When you’re young it seems like
the lonely life you’re living in
Is the only one and will never change
When you’re young it feels like
all the walls are closing in
On these seemingly ordinary days

He was born under southern skies
Where the heart of dixie lies
He was a long shot to stick around
His days were numbered they were counting down
To the day he’d bring attention to his name
No one would ever look at him the same

He longed to be in the spotlight
Where he could sing his song
And everyone in the audience
They would sing along
The best days of his life seemed far away
From these ordinary days
The best days of his life seemed far away
From these ordinary days
Ordinary Days
Ordinary Days

 

3. Dragonfly

Perched like a guardian
Unafraid to fall
Outside the parliament
Soldiers on the wall
Transfixed, the audience
Iridescent wings
Lost not the evidence
Of what it all means

And in this moment time stands still
For this revelation overspill
And the dragonfly is well aware
Standing in one place too long gets you nowhere

All so oblivious
To your purpose there
But for the obvious
We quietly stop and stare
Lost in the irony
of pomp and circumstance
When you can’t hear the symphony
You just watch the people dance

And in this moment time stands still
For this revelation overspill
As the dragonfly is well aware
Standing in one place too long gets you nowhere

Grace in a stately pose
Symbol undefined
Blind, but the artist knows
Where to draw the line
Perched like a guardian
To the naked eye
Blink, the pedestrian
And miss the dragonfly

And in this moment time stands still
For this revelation overspill
As the dragonfly is well aware
Standing in one place too long gets you nowhere

And in this moment time stands still
And every thought is shared against your will
As the dragonfly is well aware
Standing in one place too long gets you nowhere

 

4. Steal My Heart Away

There was a time when the love was mine
when the fairytale seemed so real
I was swept away like the coming of age
of a boy with a heart that only one girl could steal

Steal my heart away
Steal my heart away

The years have passed but the memories last
And I’ve never met another like you
While you live in my dreams like a beauty queen
I can never get enough but it’s the best I can do

Steal my heart away
Steal my heart away

I wonder where you are today
I wonder if you ever think of me
In your dreams, do you hear me say
Come and steal my heart away

Steal my heart away
Steal my heart away
Steal my heart away
Steal my heart away

 

5. Leave this World with You

Say what you will what you want
what you gonna do now
Is the aftertouch too much it’s a crutch
but you need it somehow
I want you saying you are the one
I will be waiting to love you after this life is done

I want to leave this world with you
I want to breathe my last breath in your arms
When this life is through
I want to leave this world with you

When you awaken don’t rush
to open your eyes
Bathe in the afterglow make it so
a good dream better survives
I want you saying you are the one
I will be waiting to love you after this life is done

I want to leave this world with you
I want to breathe my last breath in your arms
When this life is through
I want to leave this world with you

I want you saying you are the one
I will be waiting to love you after this life is done

I want to leave this world with you
I want to breathe my last breath in your arms
When this life is through
I want to leave this world with you
When this life is through
I want to leave this world with you
When this life is through
I want to leave this world with you

 

6. New Frontier

A terrible night at the ball I presume
she took flight by the way of a motorcar
She longed for affection from only one man
but direction set him towards a different star

Later that evening I made my way home
disbelieving the thought that she’d reappear
The look on her face that suggested
the time and the place for resurgence
was somewhere far from here

Out on the new frontier
The weatherman’s words “all clear”
Feeling yourself unrestrained
A place to start over again
On the new frontier

The leaves fell outside at least 30 more times
As the proof made its point with the elder trees
The years have resigned
to the fact that I felt so inclined
to have set my own mind at ease

Some people say that the girl passed away
from a crack in her heart that would never mend
But I like to think that she’s on holiday
with the wind in her hair the sun on her skin
with no intention of coming back this way again

Out on the new frontier
The weatherman’s words “all clear”
Feeling yourself unrestrained
A place to start over again

Out on the new frontier
The weatherman’s words “all clear”
Feeling yourself unashamed
A place to start over again
On the new frontier

 

7. If You’re Really Gone

For once in your life, don’t get me wrong
I don’t wanna write another break up song
I can’t take another night alone
Love is only lost if you’re really gone

I never knew love could be so nice
Someone like you could make me never think twice
I wanna hold you and make you my own
Love is only lost if you’re really gone

This could be the kind of love
people only dare to dream
No such thing as miracles
But, Baby I’m ready to believe
I believe in love

If you’re really gone, I will miss your caress
If you’re really gone, I’ll avoid your address
If you’re really gone, Baby I’ll be a mess
But love is only lost if you’re really gone
I will miss your caress
If you’re really gone
I’ll avoid your address
If you’re really gone
Baby I’ll be a mess
Love is only lost if you’re really gone

 

8. The Letter

I’m writing you this letter
to tell you every day gets better
And it doesn’t matter whether
I’m with you today
‘Cause someday we’ll be together
and when that day comes I’ll never
worry about forever
‘cause I love you always

This year is coming to a close
and I’m laying out my late December clothes
Another holiday the last one of the year
I wish for peace on earth and love for you my dear

But I’m writing you this letter
to tell you every day gets better
It doesn’t matter whether
I’m with you today
‘Cause someday we’ll be together
and when that day comes I’ll never
worry about forever
‘cause I love you always

My resolution for last year missed the mark
It was to be that we would never be apart
But I’ll repeat myself and strive to make it right
After all that we’ve been thru, I still struggle thru the night

And I’m writing you this letter
to tell you every day gets better
It doesn’t matter whether
I’m with you today
‘Cause someday we’ll be together
and when that day comes I’ll never
worry about forever
because I love you always

Each night without you seems like another test
And when i close my eyes at night I silently confess
My love yearns for no one but you
At my lonely heart’s request

And I’m writing you this letter
to tell you every day gets better
And it doesn’t matter whether
I’m with you today
‘Cause someday we’ll be together
and when that day comes I’ll never
worry about forever
because I love you always

Yes, I’m writing you this letter
to tell you every day gets better
It doesn’t matter whether
I’m with you today
‘Cause someday we’ll be together
and when that day comes I’ll never
worry about forever
‘cause I love you always

 

9. Man on a Mission

Love comes in many shapes and forms
and don’t think I don’t know about that
I’ve been from the bottom to the middle
and I know where the top is at
If you were in my position
then you would know my condition
I am a man on a mission to be with you

Ive had my share of down and out
now things are looking up
I’ve lived my life in some ways
I’m not proud and I’ve had enough
I’ve been knocked out of commission
came to and won by decision
I am a man on mission to be with you

I know it’s late, maybe too late to show
You wanted answers I didn’t know
But, I can’t help not letting you go
No way this is wrong
Baby, you’re the one

If you were in my position
then you would know my condition
I am a man on a mission to be with you

I’ve been knocked out of commission
came to and won by decision
I am a man on a mission
I am a man on a mission
I am a man on a mission
I am a man on a mission to be with you

 

10. Save Me

For so long, I’ve been so gone
A lot of time to think where things went wrong
I didn’t know if I could make it through
I stared a hole thru your photograph
Thought about the times I made you laugh
I swear I never needed anyone but you, it’s true

Save me from myself
I know I can love you like nobody else
My heart’s been covered in dust
And I’ve put yours through hell
So save me, save me, save me from myself

I’m coming home, i don’t know when
Or if I’ll ever be the same again
But I’ve got nowhere else to go
And nowhere that I’d rather be
While I’m trying to get back on my feet
You see I never, never, meant to let you go, oh no

Save me from myself
I know I can love you like nobody else
And my heart’s been covered in dust
And I’ve put yours through hell
So save me, save me, save me from myself

Many nights I lie awake and dream in blue
Lonely nights I dream I lie awake with you

Save me from myself
I know I can love you like nobody else
And my heart’s been covered in dust
And I’ve put yours through hell
So save me, save me, save me from myself

Only you can save me
You know I can love you like nobody else
Save me

Only you, only you can save me
I never meant to let you go
Save me…

 

11. Because of You

Long before I ever knew
I could love someone like you
I had no reason to believe in fairy tales
Before the calm of endless seas
revealed to me such mysteries
I was only guided by the wind against my sails

I’m not the man I used to be
He lives long ago and far away
I am the man I am today
Because you cared enough to see me through
I am the man I am today because of you

Offered my heart when I was young
I found love but not the one
Dreams gave a glimpse of someone I had yet to find
And so it was for heaven’s sake
True love comes to those who wait
And I waited my whole life to look into your eyes

I’m not the man I used to be
He lives long ago and far away
I am the man I am today
Because you cared enough to see me through
I am the man I am today because of you
You had my heart right from the start
Before I ever knew your name
Your love surrounds me
Now that you’ve found me
A fairy tale and you are the same

I’m not the man I used to be
He lives long ago and far away
I am the man I am today
Because you cared enough to see me through
I am the man I am today because of you
I am the man I am today because of you

 

12. Everything’s Gonna Be Alright

Spinning your wheels with your feet on the ground
pondering a fork in the road
With a compass that points to the north when you’re down
the question is when do you go

Twiddling your thumbs while you’re up in the air
full speed, your head’s in a cloud
Killing the time by tightening the square
of the knot on the rope that’s unwound

Everything’s gonna be alright
Tomorrow you’ll see things in a different light
Like a hard rain in a well run dry
Everything’s gonna be alright

Promise some words with some sugar on top
second guessing a sure thing
A split decision falls and breaks on the spot
you were dangling your heart on a string

Clever serpent with an angel’s tongue
Harbinger of all you desire
You hear the music, the song’s been sung
you’re the only one left in the choir

Everything’s gonna be alright
Tomorrow you’ll see things in a different light
Like a hard rain in a well run dry
Everything’s gonna be alright

Daggers intended to dampen the spirit
come from the most cynical eyes
Some people don’t heed the call when they hear it
for others, it passes them by

Falling on deaf ears, the turn of a phrase
the elephant lost in the room
No pillow talk as the memory plays in your head
like a silent cartoon

But, everything’s gonna be alright
Tomorrow you’ll see things in a different light
Like a hard rain in a well run dry
Everything’s gonna be alright

Yea, everything’s gonna be alright
Tomorrow you’ll see things in a different light
Like a hard rain in a well run dry
Everything’s gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
