Blindside Born

As I stand here watching your worn-out shell

You used it well

I can feel it in the atmosphere somehow

I want to see with your eyes right now

I know you’ve never been this close before

You’ve been feeling homesick for a while

This is the moment you’ve been longing for

The gate is slowly opening more and more

And I’m already missing you

I always thouhgt the walls between

The worlds were bigger was thicker

And I’m already missing you

Blindside About A Burning Fire

I thought about fire in the sky

I thought about fire

I thought about love burning in your eye

I thought about fire

I thought about fire in the sky

I thought about fire

I thought about love burning in your eye

I thought about fire

It hurts

That drops of fire would fall so precise

And how everything else would lose its meaning

What a beautiful

What a painful surprise

There is no peace outside if there is nothing within

It hurts

But like coming home

Once dried up

I guess this is what you get

When a heart expands

I thought about fire in the sky

I thought about fire

I thought about love burning in your eye

I thought about fire

Love is destructive

For the ego

And your voice is the only thing

That speaks rebelliously in this world of claiming your own

There is no peace outside if there’s nothing within

Love is addictive

For the spirit

And your voice whispers with a roar

That fire rises up, refills

Place the right king on the throne

I thought about fire in the sky

I thought about fire

I thought about love burning in your eye

I thought about fire

I thought about fire in the sky

I thought about fire

I thought about love burning in your eye

I thought about fire

I thought about a burning fire

I thought about a love in fire

I thought about your love, yeah

I thought about your love

I thought about a burning fire

I thought about a love in fire

I thought about your love

I thought about your love

I thought about a burning fire

I thought about a love in fire

I thought about your love

I thought about your love

I thought about a burning fire

I thought about a burning fire

I thought about your love

I thought about your love

I thought about a love

I thought about love

Blindside As You Walk

Just one last cigarette and fly

Coincidences made sorrow rule over your soul

I’m standing with my wings around you

I cry

So try to show you’re a man

You’re nobody’s toy

There is nothing that separates a man from a boy

Thought so dark you got lost in there

Lost your way home and now it’s getting late

I long to greet you when you come home

But don’t you leave earth in this state

No don’t you leave earth in this state

I’m the soft whisper of peace in your ear

As all of this creates

No night vision in this forest of darkness

And I feel what you feel inside

And as your skin got burned mine did too when they lied

And you know I’m pulling you closer

Blindside 3:16

For God so loved the world that He

gave His only Son, that whosoever believeth

in Him should not perish but have

everlasting life.

Blindside All Of Us

As soon as you stepped through my door,

I saw You for the first time all over again.

And time well spent seems

Lonelier than the way it used to go.

As I smell you for the first time all over again

I’ll begin to remember to be alive

So if you don’t mind

I think I’ll wear my heart on my sleeve,

‘Cause I’m tired of not being able to breathe.

All of us are searching for an open arm.

Well, it’s a shame how I curl up in the dark

When it’s the same old word giving me the spark.

All of us are searching for an open arm.

Well, it’s a shame how I curl up in the dark

I’ve felt a loss for some time

I slipped, stumbled, but fell face first

straight into your hand.

Then I hit my head on your palm

And waking up to the smell

Of tears drying up in the sand

All of us are searching for an open arm.

Well, it’s a shame how I curl up in the dark

When it’s the same old word giving me the spark.

All of us are searching for an open arm.

Well, it’s a shame how I curl up in the dark

I washed my wounds with tears of hope.

I washed my wounds with tears of hope.

I just …

All of us are searching for an open arm

Well, it’s a shame how I pull myself apart.

When it’s the same words making me run for cover to your arms.

(All of us are searching for an open arm)

When it’s the same words making me run for cover to your arms.

(All of us are searching for an open arm)

(All of us are searching for an open arm)

Blindside After You’re Gone

I could not lie

Skin untouched growing thicker for every step unwalked

And I don’t know if it’s the cold intention-slide

Taking me down

But what if you’d sing me alive

I’m ready to give up the fight

‘Cause I’m just a stone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

I could not lie

Even though dead skin like stone makes me ugly

It still pounds inside and it’s red

And it’s slipping through the grey cracks

And I know you know

But what if you’d sing me alive

I’m ready to give up the fight

‘Cause I’m just a stone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

But what if you’d sing me alive

I’m ready to give up the fight

Cause I’m just a stone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

But what if you’d sing me alive

I’m ready to give up the fight

‘Cause I’m just a stone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

Right after you’re gone

The first thing that meets the eye

When I crossover into the light

I want it to be you

Right after I’m gone

Right after I’m gone

Right after I’m gone

Blindside Across Waters Again

Waiting

How can someone so close

Be allowed to be so far away

Your red leaves fall in the evening

While Im waking up to smog these days

You know how I love when the sun touch my skin

But I still miss your thoughts on rain

So come and save me over the thin phoneline

Just one of those days

Where you learn to fly

WIth broken wings

My thoughts are on an airplane home

While my feet are still on the ground

Just one of those days

Where you learn to fly

With broken wings

But you were never late

To pick up the phone and call

Now it’s fall and I miss

Making love in the sunday afternoon sunlight

Wednesday, thursday

One down, a billion to go

With glasses foggy you’re losing sight

So come and I’ll sae you over this thin phoneline

One of those days

Where you learn to fly

With broken wings

My thoughts are on an airplane home

While my feet are still on the ground

Just one of those days

Where you learn to fly

With broken wings

One of those days

Where you learn to fly

With broken wings

My thoughts are on an airplane home

While my feet are still on the ground

Just one of those days

Where you learn to fly

With broken wings

Blindside Act

I will drive a thousand miles

To escape the smog in this town

I will drive although I don’t have a license

To escape the ideal that this city crowns

Hide every little scar with so much make-up

The skin can’t even breathe

Hide every little scar or become the food they feed

Shift into a higher gear

Place the brick on the gas

On what I left behind I won’t waste a tear

My rearview mirror has got broken glass

I will drive until I reach the desert

And wait until I see with my own eyes again

I will drive I’ll head for the desert

And wait until our minds speak the same words as back then

This makes me into nothing in their eyes

But I’m willing to pay the price

Blindside Ask Me Now

And so one morning just before dawn you came

Out of the forest towards my window

With a smile in your hand

As the moist air up to your knees started swirling like smoke

I saw your lips move

Asking: did you lose something?

I stood glued to the window

Emotions running through my vein

Now I know a word I can’t explain

I think I’ve known you all along

Just lost your face in the crowd for awhile

I think I have been holding my breath all my life

Can I exhale and go into exile

So ask me now and I’ll run away with you

And so with the dawn you’ve come

Eye to eye with nothing in between but this fragile glass

Your lips move again

I try but I can’t detect the vibrations in the air

How I’ve still early and I see your words getting caught

In the window slowly turning into frost

I see your hand move and I can’t detain

Scraping down a word I can’t explain

I think I’ve known you all along

Just lost your face in the crowd for awhile

I think I have been holding my breath all my life

Can I exhale and go into exile

So ask me now and I’ll run away with you

And so one morning just before dawn you came

And so with the dawn you’ve come

I think I’ve known you all along

Just lost your face in the crowd for awhile

I think I have been holding my breath all my life

Can I exhale and go into exile

So ask me now and I’ll run away with you

I will

Ask me now and I’ll run away with you

Just lost your face in the crowd for awhile

Ask me now and I’ll run away with you

Can I exhale and go into exile

Ask now and I’ll run away with you

Blindside Bloodstained Hollywood Ending

Unpack that suitcase it’s not time to leave

Unpack that broken heart

There’s a window throw it out

It’s a good way to start

You’re half-asleep I’m wide awake

You’re frozen is the ice about to break

And I’m done tiptoeing around you

I cross my heart and hope to die

You gave your all and so did I

Close your eyes and see

This is a bloodstained Hollywood ending

This is like a run to the airport movie

Can I catch you before you leave?

This is the end of the line

The choice is yours – Recent or receive

You’re half-asleep I’m wide awake

You’re frozen is the ice about to break

I’m done tiptoeing around you

I cross my heart and hope to die

You gave your all and so did I

Close your eyes and try

This is a bloodstained Hollywood ending
