Matt Morris Let It Go

Please lay down next to me

Next to me

Hear me loud

Let me speak

Let me speak

Please, let it fall

Let it fade

Let it go

Please, let it fall

Let it fade away

Let it go

Words that I didnt mean

Didnt mean

Made you cry quietly…quietly

So please, let it fall

Let it fade

Let it go

Please, let it fall

Let it fade away

Let it go

Please, let it fall

Let it fade

Let it go

Please, let it fall

Let it fade away

Let it go

Matt Morris Hallelujah

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord

That David played, and it pleased the Lord

But you don’t really care for music, do you?

It goes like this

The fourth, the fifth

The minor fall, the major lift

The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof

You saw her bathing on the roof

Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

She tied you

To her kitchen chair

She broke your throne, and she cut your hair

And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above

But all I’ve ever learned from love

Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you

And it’s not a cry that you hear at night

It’s not somebody who’s seen the light

It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Hallelujah

Matt Morris Forgiveness

I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Yes, I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

I am not broken when lost

I am not whipped beneath her cross

I’ve cried for words been lost

And for all that I’ve done

I, I’ve pained done over the tears

I, I love for these painful years

I waited through my fears

Through aches of fire

I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Yes, I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Well I crawl before the throne

My beating heart and my wounded soul

My foolish pride

It seems I saw I brought my hardest

But I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Yes, I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Oh, heaven bring me fears

And mend this heart and are

As supple as roses

Oh, when will there be

A brand new start

Can we make it right

Cuz I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Said I believe in second chances

I know I need one

I know I need you to let me come home

Please let me come home

Cuz I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Yes, I’m looking for forgiveness tonight

Matt Morris You Do It For Me

having been through the run through

a couple times.

There’s only one sweet thing I want,

only one sweet thing in this nasty world

that’s good enough for me…

And that’s you, you, you, you, you…

You do it for me.

You, you, you, you, you

Do it for me

Something-

You can’t deny this is someting,

It’s kinda feeling like lovin’,

if you’re asking me.

And baby lovin’ ain’t that bad…

So long as it’s free.

Baby you, you, you, you, you…

You do it for me.

You, you, you, you, you…

Go’n do it for me

Do it for me.

Matt Morris Live Forever

Please tell me baby, it’s not a mistake

Please tell me baby, it’s not a mistake

I’m an honest man; I know how to wait

So please tell me baby, it’s not a mistake

There’s no language for how I feel

There is no language for how I feel

When I look at you standing there, none of this seems real

There is no language for how I feel

Cause we’re looking for the way to make this better

Looking for a way to change the weather,

Whether you or I survive tonight

I promise you that I will love you like we’re gonna live forever

There ain’t a thing that could change my mind

There ain’t a thing that could change my mind

Let the tower fall I’ll play the fool and leave everything behind

There aint a thing that can change my mind

Cause we’re looking for a way to make it better

Looking for a way to change the weather,

Whether you or I survive tonight

I promise you that I will love you like we’re gonna live forever

When everything breaks open, everything breaks down

Wider and wider the spaces between

We look in the dark and wonder, does it make sense to stop now?

And hold the line, hold the line

Cause we’re looking for a way to make it better

Looking for a way to change the weather,

Whether you or I survive tonight

I promise you that I will love you like we’re gonna live forever

(Looking for a way) gonna live forever

(Looking for a way) to change the weather

Whether you or I survive tonight

I promise you that I will love you like we’re gonna live forever

Matt Morris In This House

These buildings grow like weeds,

like dandelion seeds,

they spring up where they please.

The buildings grow up and they come down,

changing the landscape of the town,

whats inside them is what counts, to me.

Is there love, in this house?

Is there love, in this house?

You can fill it up with shiny things,

flashy fur, designer jeans,

but is there love, in this house?

When it costs too much to eat,

and the airs too hard to sleep,

I lie awake and think.

The rain goes up and it don’t come down,

poor people who move it now,

no one makes a fuss about it.

Well is there love, in this house?

Is there love, in this house?

You can fill it up with shiny things,

flashy fur, designer jeans,

but is there love, in this house?

Ohhhh…

I tell ya, I don’t know.

Is there love, in this house?

Is there love, in this house?

Can we be the change we wish to see,

realize our hopes and dreams?

And is there love in this house?

Ohhhh…

I say what we gonna do babe when the money runs out,

what we gonna do babe?

What we gonna do babe when the money runs out,

tell me.

Matt Morris Just Before The Morning

You were mine

Your surrender was a perfect rhyme

And in the night I whispered

You were mine

And I sang you a lullaby

Now my head swims with

Every careless word you said

In between the rhythm of your breath

My heart bled

So tell me when did love

Turn into anther soil dug

How did we forget to open up

Where did we mess this up

And why did I leave

Just before the morning, oh oh

Just before the morning, oh oh

Just before the morning, oh oh

Just before the morning, oh oh

And this can’t be real

This is something you pretend to feel

When a broken heart is cold as steel

How can it ever heal

Give me pain

Give me something I can feel again

Lead me to surrender, I’ll give in

And I’ll let you win

Why did I leave

Just before the morning, oh oh

Just before the morning, oh oh

Just before the morning, oh oh

Just before the morning, oh oh

Why did I leave

Oh, why did I leave

Just before the morning

Just before the morning

Just before the morning

Matt Morris Don’t You Dare

Here, long before the clear, I was here

Singing songs alone, in empty rooms

And I can’t forget your voice, it’s crystal clear

I hear it callin’ out, and you say

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

Love, let me try again

I reach out, but you’re nowhere to be found

And time stands still, when i hear your voice

The perfect sound, the best around

That’s callin’ out, and you say

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

No more, don’t leave, don’t walk away

I told you everything i swear

No more, don’t make me lose my sane

I told you everything…

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

I told you everything I swear

So don’t you dare

Ooooooooo

Don’t you dare

Matt Morris Bloodline

She was a girl living in the city clinging to old religion

Praying for electricity to keep it warm for the little ones

Nobody made her wise to the things a girl might find

In the belly of a hungry man who don’t care nothing about his bloodline

She got lost in the bloodline

Heavy cost of a bloodline

She goes on she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline

So much riding on a bloodline

Why is he hiding from the bloodline?

It ain’t right she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline

She heard heaven is invite only reserved for Christian soldiers

Not unwed girls living in the city asking for change from strangers

But father said Jesus loves her even though she never married

God loves her more than the Christians do, she’s part of His holy bloodline

She got saved in the bloodline

The price he paid for the bloodline

Changed her life, she cries at night and keeps alive His bloodline

She believes in his bloodline

Lives and breathes by the bloodline

With all her might she cries at night and keeps alive his bloodline

Oh

I know I should have never left her to shoulder all the burden

She probably won’t forgive me, God might not either,

I made a cross and laid it on her back

But I never broke her spirit and she owes that to her bloodline

She stayed strong for the bloodline, I did wrong by the bloodline

But she went on, she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline

Sacrifice for the bloodline paid the price for the bloodline

For all her life she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline

Ohhhhhhhhhh she cried at night and kept alive her bloodline ooooooooooooo

Matt Morris Eternity

Through the ages we have lived and died

Kings make war and sages prophescied

Somewhere between the first creation and tonight

Was a million incarnations of me myself and I

I was a savior in another life

With a white robe flowing in the morning light

I walked with angels in my darkest plight

In the desert for forty days and forty nights

I was a tyrant with an angry tongue

Who neglected the old and enslaved the young

It was quite when I brought the air into my lungs

And sang the very first song every sung

I’m carrying, the memory, of these things, inside of me

I greet them with humility

They’re with me for eternity

I’m telling you, with sincerity

In what you do and what you be

These don’t follow you, like you follow me

And be with you for eternity

I was a woman swollen full with child

I was a healer, Shaman in the wild

I was the prosecutor, I was put on trial

I put forth the accusation, I made a denial

I drank the blood of Jesus from a wooden cup

I ate a bit of heaven then I spit it up

I caught my brother lying and I called his bluff

I led the sheep to slaughter once his time was up

Twice I brought the masses down, to their knees

One time with love, the next time with greed

My childhood aspirations got the best of me

My … became the worlds destiny

I’m carrying, the memory, of these things, inside of me

I greet them with humility

They’re with me for eternity

I’m telling you, with sincerity

In what you do and what you be

These don’t follow you, like they follow me

And be with you for eternity

I was a man with pointer on the trigger

I brought the temple down and rebuilt it with one finger

I was the first singer, to lullaby the lord to sleep in the manger

I was the stranger on the road to Damascus,

Saying turn your eyes to God and you shall receive the answers

Turn your eyes to God and receive the answers

Turn your eyes to God

I’m carrying, the memory, of these things, inside of me

I greet them with humility

They’re with me for eternity

I’m telling you, with sincerity

In what you do and what you be

These don’t follow you, like they follow me

And be with you for eternity

It’s going to be with you for eternity
