Daughtry Gone

Feeling like this could only mean

I’m sinking.

Feeling like this could only mean

I’m sinking.

Well, I’m sinking.

Pull me up.

Every time I see your clothes scattered out on the floor,

I say I thought you would be home.

You said you never would be gone.

Every time I see the light not burning on the porch,

I say I thought you would be home.

You said you never would be gone,

But you are.

You are.

Feeling overwhelmed, I take a dive

To a once overfilled but now empty place to hide.

The day you turned on me is the day I died,

And I’ve forgotten what it’s like,

And how it feels to be alive.

Every time I see your clothes scattered out on the floor,

I say I thought you would be home.

You said you never would be gone.

Every time I see the light not burning on the porch,

I say I thought you would be home.

You said you never would be gone.

Reach up to the sky.

When nothing seems to go right,

When nothing seems to go right for me.

Every time I see your clothes scattered out on the floor.

I say I thought you would be home.

You said you never would be gone.

Everytime I see the light not burning on the porch,

I say I thought you would be home.

You never would be gone.

I thought you would be home.

You said you never would be gone,

But you are.

Daughtry September

How the time passed away? All the trouble that we gave

And all those days we spent out by the lake

Has it all gone to waste? All the promises we made

One by one they vanish just the same

Of all the things I still remember

Summer’s never looked the same

The years go by and time just seems to fly

But the memories remain

In the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain

Nothing to lose but everything to gain

Reflecting now on how things could’ve been

It was worth it in the end

Now it all seems so clear, there’s nothing left to fear

So we made our way by finding what was real

Now the days are so long that summer’s moving on

We reach for something that’s already gone

Of all the things I still remember

Summer’s never looked the same

The years go by and time just seems to fly

But the memories remain

In the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain

Nothing to lose but everything to gain

Reflecting now on how things could’ve been

It was worth it in the end

We knew we had to leave this town

But we never knew when and we never knew how

We would end up here the way we are

Yeah we knew we had to leave this town

But we never knew when and we never knew how

Of all the things I still remember

Summer’s never looked the same

The years go by and time just seems to fly

But the memories remain

In the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain

Nothing to lose but everything to gain

Reflecting now on how things could’ve been

It was worth it in the end

Daughtry Cinderella

Dressed in rags

You’re scoopin’ litter from the cats

I thought we had someone for that

But by the looks of things you fired the maid again

Yeah I confess

I know that floor won’t clean itself

And you’re worried half to death

About the things that just won’t matter in the end

Take off those shoes

Looks like you could really use a glass slipper

Yeah I know it’s been a pisser

So one strong sipper might suffice

Come on girl, I’m beggin’ please

Get off your knees, I got the keys

And I’ll pick you up at midnight

In my souped-up pumpkin ride

‘Cause you’re my Cinderella

We’re two birds of a feather

I’ll even sing to you acapella

You’re so hella good looking tonight

My Cinderella

Whenever you need some shelter

We can stand under my umbrella

Together

Need no fortune teller to say it’s forever with you

Oh, I know it’s forever with you

Don’t watch the clock,

I paid some dude to make it stop

But we won’t worry ’bout tomorrow

There’s no sorrow in this fairy tale I wrote

I gotta say

You still take my breath away

That look reminds me of that day

You scratched your number on that yellow post-it note

And now you’re my Cinderella

We’re two birds of a feather

I’ll even sing to you acapella

You’re so hella good looking tonight

My Cinderella

Whenever you need some shelter

We can stand under my umbrella

Together

Need no fortune teller to say it’s forever with you

Oh, I know it’s forever with you

Check out those stars

I picked ’em up one day on Mars

And you thought I was at the bar

Well okay maybe there’s a little truth to that

As I was sayin’

If you squint a certain way

You’ll see they kinda spell your name

Just a little

Okay maybe that’s a stretch

But you’re my Cinderella

We’re two birds of a feather

I’ll even sing to you acapella

Forever

Or until you’ve had enough

Cause you’re my Cinderella

And I’m your kind of fella

I wanna kiss you there and tell ya

You’re so hella good looking tonight

My Cinderella

Whenever you need some shelter

We can stand under my umbrella

Together

Need no fortune teller to say it’s forever with you

Oh, I know it’s forever with you

Yeah, and I mean forever with you

Oh, I know it’s forever with you

Daughtry Broken Arrows

Hey

Show me one man that’s never made mistakes

Oh,

And I’ll pay

All of my time and every dime I made

But today

The best of intentions I lay at your feet

And I need you to see past the worst part of me

I’m tired of taking my aim

When I keep on missing

There’s gotta be a better way

Gotta be a better way

And every little word I say

Keeps getting twisted

Coming out wrong

So baby hold on

I’m tryin’ to hit the mark

But I’m shooting with broken arrows

It’s like I’m shooting with broken arrows

No

I may not be a saint but I’ve got a heart of gold

Connection ain’t clear

But I hope you hear my soul

Broken arrows… yeah

Daughtry Drown In You

There’s a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn

Lay it down and lose it all

It’s taken me so far beyond the point of no return

Gave all that I had

When hope is gone

(Hope is gone)

Is this real?

Or is it just another crazy dream?

Someday soon will fade away

Feels just like I’m under water and can barely breathe

Dying in the bed that I have made

I don’t wanna drown in you

I’m sinking, then I’m torn in two

So when you see me come up for air

Don’t try to hold me down, just save me now

Don’t let me drown in you

(Don’t let me drown in you)

City pulls me in closer than I’ve ever been

There ain’t no way I can escape

Without a doubt you know that I would tread the deepest end

Thousand years forever in a day

But I don’t wanna drown in you

I’m sinking, then I’m torn in two

So when you see me come up for air

Don’t try to hold me down, just save me now

(Just save me now)

Don’t let me drown in you

Did I bring this to myself?

Can I get out alive?

Yeah, I’ve given you the best of me

Now you want the rest of me

What’s it gonna take to survive?

Yeah!

[Solo]

There’s a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn

I don’t wanna drown in you

(Drown in you)

I’m sinking, then I’m starting to

(I’m starting to)

So when you see me, come up the river

Don’t try to hold me down, just save me now

(Just save me now)

Don’t let me drown in you

Don’t let me drown in you

(Drown in you)

(Just save me now)

(Don’t let me drown in you)

(Drown in you)

Daughtry Crawling Back To You

Lessons learned, bridges burned to the ground,

And it’s too late now to put out the fire,

Tables turned, and I’m the one who’s burning now,

Well I’m doing alright,

‘Til I close my eyes

And then I see your face,

And it’s no surprise.

[Chorus:]

Just like that I’m crawling back to you,

Just like you said I would yeah,

I swallow my pride,

Now I’m crawling back to you,

I’m out of my head,

Can’t wait any longer,

Down on my knees, I thought I was stronger,

Just like that, like you said I’d do,

I’m crawling back to you.

Time can heal, but the scars only hide the way you feel,

And it’s hard to forget how I left you hanging

On by a thread, when everything is said, I will regret it, yeah,

I was doin’ alright, thought I could make it,

Then I see your face and it’s hard to fake it.

[Chorus:]

Just like that I’m crawling back to you,

Just like you said I would yeah,

I swallow my pride,

Now I’m crawling back to you,

I’m out of my head,

Can’t wait any longer,

Down on my knees, I thought I was stronger,

Just like that, like you said I’d do,

I’m crawling back to you.

If you could find a way, to forgive everything, I know you would.

And I would take it all back, give if only I knew that I could.

Lessons learned, bridges burned to the ground.

And it’s too late now, to put out the fire.

[Chorus:]

Just like that I’m crawling back to you,

Just like you said I would yeah,

I swallow my pride,

Now I’m crawling back to you,

I’m out of my head,

Can’t wait any longer,

Down on my knees, I thought I was stronger,

Just like that, like you said I’d do,

I’m crawling back to you.

I’m crawling back to you [3x]

Daughtry Louder Than Ever

Heard that song on the radio,

And it got my gears turnin’

Like a real life time machine.

You were there in the front seat,

Windows down we were burning,

It was just like a movie scene,

Those dashboard lights,

And your pale blue eyes cutting through me.

Two hearts on the getaway,

Feels just like yesterday,

Young love on the freeway,

Singing louder than ever.

Those nights we used to sing along,

We were living in a love song,

Those days might be gone,

But I hear it louder than ever.

We spent that whole summer long,

You and me and the moonlight,

Chasing dreams in a fast machine,

No way that it could go wrong,

When it all felt so right,

Feeling like California queen,

I cannot forget all of the ways that you loved me.

Two hearts on the getaway,

Feels just like yesterday,

Young love on the freeway,

Singing louder than ever.

Those nights we used to sing along,

We were living in a love song,

Those days might be gone,

But I hear it louder than ever.

I can’t help but turn it up,

No it can’t get loud enough,

Yeah, I just wanna hear it,

Over and over,

Over and over,

Heard that song on the radio,

And it got my gears turnin’

Like a real life time machine.

Two hearts on the getaway,

Feels just like yesterday,

Young love on the freeway,

Singing louder than ever.

Those nights we used to sing along,

We were living in a love song,

Those days might be gone,

But I hear it louder than ever.

Two hearts on the getaway,

Feels just like yesterday,

Young love on the freeway,

I hear it louder than ever.

Those nights we used to sing along,

We were living in a love song,

Those days might be gone,

But I hear it louder than ever.

Daughtry Get Me Through

Cry out all who care to know

I’ve been hollow way too long

I know where I’m going wrong

There’s nothing I can do

I believe you can get me through

Nothing else will do

I believe you can get me through

So can you stop the bleeding?

Get me through…

Color blind I paint your blue sky grey

But this time you’ll shed some light on me

Just before I fade away

There’s nothing I can do

I believe you can get me through

Nothing else will do

I believe you can get me through

So can you stop the bleeding?

Get me through…

All the chances that you’re takin’

The promises that I keep breaking down

Writings on the wall

Can’t make out all the letters

But I know it’s getting better now

The writings on the wall

Get me through…

There’s nothing I can do

I believe you can get me through

Nothing else will do

I believe you can get me through

So can you stop the bleeding?

Get me through…

Daughtry Break The Spell

Like a moth into a flame,

I’m hypnotized,

And like a stone,

I’m paralyzed cause I can’t look away,

You found your way under my skin,

And I’m tryin’ not to love you,

But I hate the way I keep on givin’

Into you, like I always do,

No matter how I try,

Or maybe could it be,

That you’re the part of me,

That’s keeping me alive?

How am I supposed to break this spell you got me under,

I’m so addicted to the pain,

Got your poison running through my veins,

The way you pull me in,

The way you chew me up,

The way you spit me out,

I keep coming back, I can’t get enough,

I can’t go without you,

I could fight you ’til the end,

But I will lose you if I win,

So I guess I’ll just keep on givin’

Into you, like I always do,

No matter how I try,

Or maybe could it be,

That you’re the part of me,

That’s keeping me alive?

How am I supposed to break this spell you got me under,

I’m so addicted to the pain,

Got your poison running through my veins,

The way you pull me in,

The way you chew me up,

The way you spit me out,

I keep coming back, I can’t get enough,

I can’t go without you,

This feeling is far from sober,

Its beauty buried deep inside,

You’re the only one who gets me high,

And I know it’s far from over,

As you can see you’re the part of me,

That’s keeping me alive

How am I supposed to break this spell you got me under,

I’m so addicted to the pain,

Got your poison running through my veins,

The way you pull me in,

The way you chew me up,

The way you spit me out,

I keep coming back, I can’t get enough,

I can’t go without,

The way you pull me in,

The way you chew me up,

The way you spit me out,

I keep coming back, I can’t get enough,

I can’t go without,

I keep coming back, I can’t get enough,

I can’t go without, you.
