Daughtry No Surprise

(And I hope.. and I hope..)

I’ve practiced this for hours, gone round and round

And now I think that I’ve got it all down

And as I say it louder, I love how it sounds

‘Cause I’m not taking the easy way out

Not wrappin’ this in ribbons

Shouldn’t have to give a reason why

It’s no surprise. I won’t be here tomorrow

I can’t believe that I stayed ’til today

Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow

But I know in time we’ll find this was no surprise

It came out like a river, once I let it out

When I thought that I wouldn’t know how

Held onto it forever, just pushing it down

It felt so good to let go of it now

Not wrapping this in ribbons

Shouldn’t have to give a reason why

It’s no surprise. I won’t be here tomorrow

I can’t believe that I stayed ’til today

There’s nothing here in this heart left to borrow

There’s nothing here in this soul left to save

Don’t be surprised when we hate this tomorrow

God knows we tried to find an easier way

Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow

But I know in time we’ll find this was no surprise

Our favorite place we used to go

The warm embrace that no one knows

The lovin’ look that’s left your eyes

That’s why this comes as no, as no surprise

If I could see the future and how this plays out

I bet it’s better than where we are now

But after going through this

It’s easier to see the reason why

It’s no surprise.. I won’t be here tomorrow

I can’t believe that I stayed ’til today (stayed ’til today)

Yeah you and I will be a tough act to follow

But I know in time we’ll find this was no surprise

The kiss goodnight, it comes with me

Both wrong and right, our memories (our memories)

The whispering before we sleep,

Just one more thing that you can’t keep (you can’t keep)

Our favorite place we used to go

The warm embrace that no one knows

The lovin’ look that’s left your eyes

But I know in time we’ll find this was no surprise

(And I hope, and I hope, and I hope, and I hope, and I hope.)

Daughtry Life After You

Ten miles from town and I just broke down

Spittin’ out smoke on the side of the road

I’m out here alone just tryin’ to get home

To tell you I was wrong but you already know

Believe me I won’t stop at nothin’

To see you so I’ve started runnin’

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter

As long as I’m laughing with you

I’m thinkin’ that all that still matters is love ever after

After the life we’ve been through

‘Cause I know there’s no life after you

Last time we talked, the night that I walked

Burns like an iron in the back of my mind

I must’ve been high to say you and I

Weren’t meant to be and just wasting my time

Oh, why did I ever doubt you?

You know I would die here without you

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter

As long as I’m laughing with you

I’m thinkin’ that all that still matters is love ever after

After the life we’ve been through

‘Cause I know there’s no life after you

You and I, right or wrong, there’s no other one

After this time I spent alone

It’s hard to believe that a man with sight could be so blind

Thinkin’ ’bout the better times, must’ve been outta my mind

So I’m runnin’ back to tell you

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter

Without you God knows what I’d do

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter

As long as I’m laughing with you

I’m thinkin’ that all that still matters is love ever after

After the life we’ve been through

‘Cause I know there’s no life after you

Daughtry Maybe We’re Already Gone

Our time’s just another let down

White lies tearin’ up a small town

Lost cause, someone’s gotta break through

Coin toss, give away your next move

So much talkin’, left with walkin’

Is this really what we wanted?

I don’t think we’ll ever know

Know you’re sayin’ hell we’re payin’

Everything we want is fadin’

Faster than you’ll ever know

Can you see the signs?

Have we lost our minds?

Looks like we’ve fallen

Feels like we’ve fallen

Down and down we go

Never felt so low

Can’t hear you callin’

So maybe we’re already gone

Maybe we’re already gone!

Caught up, temporary meltdown

So what, it doesn’t matter right now

Right now, anyhow

After somethin’, all or nothin’

Goes right by ya, sends no motion

Why we let it take control?

Know you’re sayin’ hell we’re payin’

Everything we want is fading

And all is lost and heaven knows

Can you see the signs?

Have we lost our minds?

Looks like we’ve fallen

Feels like we’ve fallen

Down and down we go

Never felt so low

Can’t hear you callin’

So maybe we’re already gone

Maybe we’re already gone!

We’ll make it through

Yeah, there’s nothing else that we can do

Can you see the signs?

Have we lost our minds?

Looks like we’ve fallen

Feels like we’ve fallen

Down and down we go

Never felt so low

Can’t hear you callin’

So maybe we’re already gone

Can you see the signs?

Have we lost our minds?

Looks like we’ve fallen

Maybe we’re already

Down and down we go

Never felt so low

Can’t hear you callin’

So maybe we’re already gone

Daughtry Gone Too Soon

Today could have been the day,

That you blow out your candles,

Make a wish as you close your eyes.

Today could have been the day,

Everybody was laughing,

Instead I just sit here and cry,

Who would you be?

What would you look like,

When you looked at me for the very first time?

Today could have been the next day of the rest of your life.

Not a day goes by,

That I don’t think of you,

I’m always asking why this crazy world had to lose,

Such a ray of light we never knew,

Gone too soon, yeah.

Would you have been president

Or a painter, an author, or sing like your mother?

One thing is evident,

Would’ve given all I had,

Would’ve loved you like no other.

Who would you be,

What would you look like,

Would you have my smile and her eyes?

Today could have been the next day of the rest of your life.

Not a day goes by,

That I don’t think of you,

I’m always asking why this crazy world had to lose,

Such a ray of light we never knew,

Gone too soon, yeah.

Not a day goes by,

Oh

I’m always asking why.

Not a day goes by,

That I don’t think of you,

I’m always asking why this crazy world had to lose,

Such a beautiful light we never knew,

Gone too soon,

You were gone too soon

Yeah.

Not a day goes by,

That I don’t think of you.

Daughtry On The Inside

[Verse 1:]

Your life is like a crack in the mirror

7 years of bad luck it aint getting better now

Not till all is said and done

Reflection in the window is the same old face

Background small town everywhere you look around

Tell me what you’re runnin from

Flip a coin and let it land in your hand

Heads you gonna stay but its tails

[Chorus:]

So you can move to another town

Hide where you’re sure you wont be found

But its still just you on the inside

You can pretend it’ll be alright

Said it to yourself but you know its just a lie

Cause its still just you on the inside

Still you on the inside…

[Verse 2:]

Nothin faster than the speed of your leavin

A hundred miles an hour and there aint no slowin down

But you cant outrun yourself

Hey you can say you fit in like a joker in the deck

But now you’re skipping like a broken record goin round

You’re the last to ask for help

You flip a coin and let it land in your hand

Heads you gonna stay but its tails

[Chorus:]

So you can move to another town

Hide where you’re sure you wont be found

But its still just you on the inside

You can’t pretend it’ll be alright

Said it to yourself but you know its just a lie

Cause its still just you on the inside

Still you on the inside

[Bridge:]

Its never really been a question of how far

And at the end of every destination there you are

[Ending Chorus:]

You can move to another town

Hide where you’re sure you won’t be found

But its still just you on the inside

You can pretend it will be alright

No matter how you sell it

When you tell it its a lie

Cause its still just you on the inside

Still you on the inside (You can go and change and to me you’ll always be the same)

Still you on the inside (You can try and run and know you’ll always be the same inside)

Still you on the inside (You can go and change and to me you’ll always be the same)

Still you on the inside (You can try and run and know you’ll always be the same inside)

Still love you on the inside.

Daughtry Spaceship

Hood of my car

Radio’s just loud enough so I can hear Levon

Where you are is anybody’s guess but mine

Just a song that we grew up on

Constellations seem so outta line

But I’m wishing we could make it this time

If somebody’s out there

Show me that you care

Give me a sign that comes outta nowhere

Like a shooting star

Or maybe life on Mars

Something inside tells me

we can’t be too far ’cause

I can see me on a spaceship leaving here only to find

that we’re not the only ones

We’re not the only ones

Call me a fool for

Daydreaming in the dark and

Throwing bottles at the moon

Why you’re gone is Nobody’s Fault But Mine

Another song that we grew up on

Can anybody tell me where I can find

That girl I can’t get out of my mind

If somebody’s out there

Show me that you care

Give me a sign that comes outta nowhere

Like a shooting star

Or maybe life on Mars

Something inside tells me

we can’t be too far ’cause

I can see me on a spaceship leaving here only to find

that we’re not the only ones

Looking for love and

Looking for something more

When it’s not enough

We gotta stay above the clouds

‘Cause with our feet both on the ground

We’ll never learn

I can see me on a spaceship leaving here only to find

that we’re not the only ones

Somebody’s out there

Show me that you care

Give me a sign that comes outta nowhere

Like a shooting star

Maybe life on Mars

Something inside tells me

We can’t be too far ’cause

I can see me on a spaceship leaving

Come see for yourself if you don’t believe me

Together we will find that we’re not the only ones

We’re not the only ones

Daughtry I’ll Fight

I wanna see you run

Anywhere you want

Never let the darkness hold you back

No fear of getting lost

I wanna see you fly

Way beyond the sun

Anything you’re ever gonna dream

I pray that it will come

But if you ever fall down straight to the bottom

And you can’t get back where you started

Any place any time

You gotta know for you I’ll fight

(Ooh ooh, ooh ooh)

Where you wanna go

I’d love to take you there

Wish that I could make the road easy

I wish that life was fair

Don’t wanna see you cry

Even when it rains

And I hope you don’t forget this

You were born for better things

But if you ever fall down straight to the bottom

And you can’t get back where you started

With no strength to stand

I’m gonna reach for your hand

When the going gets rough right when it’s hurting

I will be there to help bear the burden

Any place any time

You gotta know for you I’ll fight

(Ooh ooh, ooh ooh)

Any place any time

You gotta know for you I’ll fight

Anywhere you go

You’re gonna find me

No matter what you need

If you ever fall down and you can’t get back

If you lose your strength to stand

If you ever fall down straight to the bottom

And you can’t get back where you started

With no strength to stand

I’m gonna reach for your hand

When the going gets rough right when it’s hurting

I will be there to help bear the burden

Any place any time

You gotta know for you I’ll fight

(Ooh ooh, ooh ooh)

Any place any time

You gotta know for you I’ll fight

Daughtry Long Way

Dusty roads

Hopeless nights

Looking at.. blinding lights

Saw your ghost here tonight

It lingers on and I feel your life

Pulling me back to the place

But the thought of staring back at you is more than I can face

And its a long way down

From where I used to rest my head

And its safe and sound

If only I could turn around

There’s no direction where I stand

Just dead end signs and wasted land.

And its a long way down..

To you

Dusty roads,

Hopeless nights..

Looking at blinding lights

Saw your ghost,

Its alive.

It lingers on, feel your life.

Pulling me back to the place…

But the thought of staring back at you was more than I could face

And it’s a long way now,

From where I used to rest my head

And it’s safe and sound

If only I could turn around

There’s no direction where I stand

Just dead end signs and wasted land

It’s a long way down to you..

To you

To you

To you…

Saw your ghost..

It’s alive.

Lingers on, I feel your life..

And it’s a long way now

To where I used to rest my head

And it’s safe and sound

If only I could turn around

There’s no direction where I stand

Just dead end signs to wasted land

And It’s a long way down

It’s a long way down

To where I used to rest my head

And its safe and sound

If only I could turn around

There’s no direction where I stand

Just dead end signs to wasted land

And it’s a long way down to you…

Daughtry 4 A.M.

Yesterday’s gone and

Tomorrow’s come way too fast

You were my first love

California, my last

Now I’m wide awake

Thinking of you with every breath I take

And I’m up before you in Pacific Standard time

Trying to find the words to write a perfect rhyme

And it’s such a crazy hour

But I just can’t get you off my mind

Just can’t get you off my mind

Maybe one more dream can end

Another trip down memory lane

It’s too late to call

But is it too late to change my ways

Now I’m wide awake

Thinking of you with every breath I take

And I’m up before you in Pacific Standard time

Trying to find the words to write a perfect rhyme

And it’s such a crazy hour

But I just can’t get you off my mind

And I’m up before you in Pacific Standard time

Don’t know why it took so long to see that I was out of line

And it’s such a crazy hour

But I just can’t get you off my mind

I just can’t get you off my mind

I just can’t get you off my mind

Now I’m wide awake

Thinking of you with every breath I take

And I’m up before you in Pacific Standard time

Trying to find the words to write a perfect rhyme

And it’s such a crazy hour

But I just can’t get you off my mind

And I’m up before you in Pacific Standard time

Don’t know why it took so long to see that I was out of line

And it’s such a crazy hour

But I just can’t get you off my mind

Just can’t get you off my mind

Yesterday’s gone and

Tomorrow’s come way too fast

Daughtry Supernatural

Lost from the start, I might as well be on the moon

Much colder than I thought even in the month of June

No communication makes ya feel so alone

All we need is patience in which I’ve never really known

But now it’s too late, it’s taking over me

It feels so supernatural and I’m pulled the other way

It’s more than I can take and I’m losing hold of everything

And no matter how I try you know I can’t deny

‘Cause you feel so supernatural

Every step I’ve taken has led me here to where you are

But all that I believe in is keeping me from seeing too far

Throwing out the questions, waiting for the right reply

Looking for the answers, tell me will it be tonight?

But now it’s too late, it’s taking over me

It feels so supernatural and I’m pulled the other way

It’s more than I can take and I’m losing hold of everything

When it’s more than physical it’s kind of hard to see beyond the glow

And no matter how I try you know I can’t deny

‘Cause you feel so supernatural

Through the atmosphere I’m seeing

Glimpses of the past I’m leaving

Holding on for life as we collide

But now it’s too late, it’s taking over me

It feels so supernatural and I’m pulled the other way

It’s more than I can take and I’m losing hold of everything

When it’s more than physical it’s kind of hard to see beyond the glow

And no matter how I try you know I can’t deny

‘Cause you feel so supernatural
