When you're all alone lost and scared you wish you could scream but you know ain't nobody there In the wilderness of your worried mind you feel the darkness deepen til you're damn near blind call on me chorus I'll be on your side When you're carrying such a heavy load and you feel like you can't take another step down that lonely road and you're wondering have i gone insane the weight of the world drags you down like a ball and chain call my name chorus I'll be on your side bridge There ain't no place you can hide from my love naw naw naw No valley too low or river too wide So just take a moment and reach deep inside your heart Cuz that's where I live and don't you know I.. chorus I'll be on your side solo, chorus to end

She walks on water and streets of gold And she talks to Jesus about my soul Sometimes I wonder how can she be real? I got a piece of an angel here with me When I'm angry she don't care she just whispers something in my ear and all of a sudden my mind is clear I gotta piece of an angel standing here She comes down and walks with me She give me love love love love unconditionally You know I'm a believer 'cause she believes in me I got a piece of an angel here with me. and when I need her I feel her there in my darkest hour overcome by fear she says it's gonna be all right until the morning light I gotta piece of an angel here with me She comes down and walks with me She give me love love love love unconditionally You know I'm a believer 'cause she believes in me I gotta piece of an angel you know I'm a believer 'cause she believes in me I gotta piece of an angel

No Way Home 04:36
Been thinkin' about the weather I think it's time for a change. Been down so long this time and i dont see a way I can stay (chorus) No way I'm ever coming back form this one, baby No way ever digging out of this hole No way that I can stay here, baby But I can't find the doorway home Back when I was young and crazy Thought the world was mine but I was lazy One thing to lie to everybody else But only the Devil lies to himself and there's no way...(chorus) (bridge) Trapped in vicious cycle infinity to end Father send down your fire and take me up to heaven Been thinking about the weather I know it's time for a change Fell down so far so hard That I don't see a way I can stay (chorus) No way I'm ever coming back form this one, baby No way ever digging out of this hole No way that I can stay here, baby But I can't find the doorway home

My girlfriend tried to kill me came at me with a knife she thought that I was sleeping Lucky I’m alive My girlfriend tried to kill me late last night She told me that the next time she’s gonna do it right Chorus I don’t know what i did so wrong I sent her flowers and I wrote her this song She’s stone cold crazy but I love her so now I don't have any place to go tried to kill me My girlfriend tried to kill me la la la la la la la la la My girlfriend tried to kill me it’s really quite a shock! I leave the toilet seat up and don't pick up my socks I let her leave the house once to buy me cigarettes she came back home and caught me with another girl in bed Chorus Bridge Relationships are so complicated Life was simpler when i just masturbated People say I have no sense of right and wrong they use words like “boundaries” that I don’t understand I never grew up, I’m a child and not a man Well, I’m trying to change but I’m not sure I can La la la la la la la la la My girlfriend tried to kill me and I can’t figure out why she’d want to do that can you help me out? Because I need a new girlfriend that has a nice car and doesn't mind a boyfriend that goes to tittie bars.

It's been a long lonely road I travel I got holes in my worn-out shoes the days drag on the nights so long they chill me to the bone and I just can't shake these blues don't know where I'm going can't remember where I've been still I keep on going until I reach the end end of the road Old Joe shot his woman down because she done him wrong Joe gonna live forever cause Jimi played that song ain't that a shame nobody knows that woman's name ain't that a shame you better win or don't play the game Back when I had money I had so many friends the I.R.S. and the banker man put that to an end then my baby left me and friends all turned their backs I set off on down the road, and never took one look back ain't that a shame nobody knows my name ain't that a shame you better win or don't play the game It's been a long lonely road I travel I got holes in my worn-out shoes the days drag on the nights so long they chill me to the bone and I just can't shake these blues But I know a better day is coming and I’ll never give up hope I just gotta keep on going Til I reach the end of the road end of the road yeah end of the road

Us 05:14
we had dreams to change the world peace and love was all we'd need fight the power loose the chains a new religion for a brand new day what happened before the dawn of that new day we were bringing on? What went so wrong? Cause I don't like the world we live in I wish I could go back in time and I don't like the hand we've been given And I wonder where we'll draw the line? We had dreams but now we gotta wake up 'cause while we were sleeping the world just got more fucked up my generation every nation stop the hatin' and let's get back to love fight for freedom for all mankind let's come together and keep this in mind the bigger they are the harder they fall and there's less of them and more of us it's all about us still about us not too late for us it's all about us.
