Collective Soul Exposed

You say you want some comedy

Well I’m not laughing no more

You say you need a remedy

I’m not your corner drug store

[Chorus:]

You took all of my money

You took all of my clothes

You took a little of everything

But it’s you who’s now exposed

You say you want some sympathy

Well I’m not drinking no more

You say you need some company

Ain’t that what cables made for

[Chorus]

You say you need someone to talk to

You got some things to share

I think you need to find someone

Someone who really… cares

[Chorus x2]

Collective Soul Understanding

With better competition

Got a savior, says he’s gonna save who

Come together people

Tell me what new habit can we choose?

We’re thinking and we’re trying

Yeah, we’re truthful then we’re lying, I’m sure you know

We’re quiet then we’re loud

Yeah, we’re hopeful then we doubt, I’m sure it shows

Do we get a second chance to these answers that we lack?

Or are we guided by the hope of some brilliant flash?

Tell me, tell me how long will this sobriety last?

Who’s understanding? Yeah, understanding

To the ways, the means of our own self

We got the sex, the dreams with nothing else

Who’s understanding? Yeah, understanding

To the right, the wrong of our own self

We got the look, the pose with nothing else

Dancing to the rhythm

From the knowledge of a hard drive spin

Looking for the formula

That always will save us in the end

We’re creeping and we’re crawling

Yeah, we’re pushing, then we’re stalling, have you felt?

We’re open, then we’re closing

Yeah, we’re hiding, then we’re showing, can you tell?

Do we get a second chance to these answers that we lack?

Or are we guided by the hope of some brilliant flash?

Tell me, tell me how long will this sobriety last?

Who’s understanding? Yeah, understanding

To the ways the means of our own self

We got the sex, the dreams with nothing else

Who’s understanding? Yeah, understanding

To the right, the wrong of our own self

We got the look, the pose with nothing else

Do we understand?

Do we understand all the words we’ve said?

Collective Soul Fuzzy

Good morning, sunshine bring on your pain

Oh, sweet Jesus, I swear I’ll

I’ll never taste it again

Not tonight, not tonight

Oh no, okay, so let’s go

I can live my life in slow mo

I think I was your boyfriend once though

But I was fuzzy then, yeah, fuzzy, oh

Twinkling starlight, yeah, it’s time to write

Why here? It’s now or never

‘Cause it’s my time to shine

Not tonight, not tonight

Oh no, okay, so let’s go

I won’t live this life in slow mo

But I was fuzzy then

Oh no, oh no, okay, so let’s go

We can live our lives in slow mo

I can’t shake it, I just can’t shake it tonight

No, not tonight

I won’t shake it, I just can’t shake it

I won’t shake it, I just can’t shake it tonight

No, not tonight, yeah

Not tonight, not tonight

Oh no, okay so let’s go

You know we’re all just pissed here, though

Yeah, we’re all fuzzy again

Yeah, we’re all fuzzy again, fuzzy again

Fuzzy my friend, fuzzy my friends

Collective Soul Untitled

Who have I left to please?

Take what you’ve yet to seize.

No more questioning

‘Cause love is what love should be.

Unveil to me all that you want me to do.

But why should I stop bearing allegiance to you?

See, I don’t believe in

The sorcerers or the preachers.

I just believe in you.

And I don’t believe in

the scholars or the wise men.

I just believe in you.

What have I left to prove?

I speak all the words you choose.

Confine me in walls of truth

‘Cause love does what love should do.

No more sentence.

All of my pain has been freed.

Why should this end when your

mercy’s all I need?

See, I don’t believe in

The sorcerers or the preachers.

I just believe in you.

And I don’t believe in

The scholars or the wise men.

I just believe in you.

Collective Soul Bearing Witness

Another day newspapers say

Life what’d you do to me

I’m always here, you’re always there

Hope that’s my company

Yeah stars have only so many wishes though

They can’t tell what we already know

See I’m just gathering all my eyes can see through

I’m bearing witness to you

I’m bearing witness to you

Familiar words the evening stirs

Life what’d you say to me

I’m promised here, you’re precious there

Love you’re my destiny

[chorus]

Somedays I surrender

Somedays I resolve

But everyday I’d conquer

With your love

With you love

[chorus]

Collective Soul Tremble For My Beloved

The Hour has Begun

Your eyes have now opened

To a world where madness craves

To A World Where Hope’s enslaved

Oh I’ll tremble for my love always

Your windows opened wide

Your innocence takes flight

To a world where madness craves

To A World Where Hope’s enslaved

Oh I’ll tremble for my love always

Collective Soul Am I Getting Through

My heart does stop

Where my soul begins

I’m not looking to start

I only want it to end

So call in your troops

Call the Calvary

Call whoever you like

But baby don’t call me

[Chorus:]

Well tomorrow shall be better

Or at least that’s the word you choose

But I’ve come to my own conclusion

Am I getting through to you

Lies so sure [?]

With your cross hard facts [?]

You got a reason for this

I got a reason for that

[Chorus]

All you’ve shown

Is carved in stone

The change is good you know

My heart does stop

Where my soul begins

I’m not looking to start

I only want it to end

[Chorus]

Welcome all again

Welcome all again

Welcome all again

Waking the day, all seems in order

Sweet wine to taste, the world’s now starting

Yeah, yeah, I’ve got the mountain foreground

Yeah, yeah, I’ve got the river deep down

Woo, hoo, hoo, welcome all my friends

Woo, hoo, hoo, welcome all again

Night time in bloom, it’s not so frightening

Swim with the moon, that’s how we like it

Collective Soul Persuasion Of You

I’ve got a memory of nothing new

I’ve only memorized all thoughts of you

I’m pushing all tomorrows

Gotta go, gotta go, gotta get you back

I’m pushing all thoughts forward

‘Cause you are the one day

That tells me that someday

I’ll get whay you choose

You are the one thing

That gives me that something

Persuasion of you

I feel you resonate, I swear I do

You got my earth vibrating no matter

Where I’m running to

I’m pushing all tomorrows

Gotta go, gotta go ’til I get you back

I’m pushing all thoughts forward

[chorus]

Don’t hold back

Hold back my world

Don’t hold back

Hold back now girl

[chorus]

Collective Soul Crowded Head

All the words that I want to hear

Are distorted by your weaknesses and fear

And your lies that I push away

I might accept them on your good self pity day

All of your sadness is crowded in my head

All of your madness is crowded in my head

And the peace that I really need

You substitute it for your policy of greed

Still your pride always suffocates

Any truth that your heart might want to make

All of your sadness is crowded in my head

All of your madness is crowded in my head

With all your static

I can’t distinguish between what’s being said

I have no room for this

You see I’m living with a crowded head

And the path that I needed shown

You left me stranded in the darkness all alone

All the promises you fed to me

I’m now choking from their taste of cruelty

All of your sadness is crowded in my head

All of your madness is crowded in my head
