Stephen Speaks Filthy

filthy, dirty, something that I can’t explain

I’m so unworthy, this gift You give me every day

and sometimes I just can’t buy

the reason why You die

everyday to cleanse the dirt of me

and I try to get by without Your blood that covers me

and I sigh as I die with each breath eventually

and leaving no excape, I fall into Your waves

and drink the love that washes over me

how deep the flood, that washes me away

how pure the blood, I’m not filthy anymore.

and I cry oh my God what have I done

I have nailed all these nails into Your only son

and still You call me a precious lamb, a chosen one

I’m filthy and You make me clean

Stephen Speaks Wallpaper Sky

Lately I’ve been thinking,

That I need a change of scenery.

These bright city lights – so blinding,

Its unbearable.

And I believe, there’s more to be – if I could see

What’s is right in front of me.

And (Ahhh), now I see,

There’s a wallpaper sky all around me

It surrounds me

it’s always better underneath

Walking on this sidewalk,

It can only take me to what’s known

I need a face of refuge.

Undeniably undiscovered – unscean

And I believe, there’s more to be – if I could see

What’s is right in front of me.

And, now I see,

There’s a wallpaper sky all around me

It surrounds me

it’s always better underneath

Cause underneath this wallpaper sky

A boy whose dream is to fly.

Paper polka dots – his hopes were so high.

And now, And now I see,

The wallpaper sky all around me

It surrounds me (And i see)

And now, And now I see,

The wallpaper sky all around me

It surrounds me (And i see)

it’s always better underneath

Stephen Speaks Just A Little Girl

She’s always trying to be

some independent girl who is never in need

but twenty years in this town

she still relies on me to find her way around

Because she’s just a little girl – time isn’t holding her down

she’s just a little girl – she never needed a crown

she just wants somebody around

who won’t laugh when she laughs too loud

she just wants somebody to see

she’s just a little girl

When I think too much

the voices in my head are silenced by her touch

she hates being alone

and babytalks to me when we’re on the phone

Because she’s just a little girl – time isn’t holding her down

she’s just a little girl – she never needed a crown

she just wants somebody around

who won’t laugh when she laughs too loud

she just wants somebody to see

she’s just a little girl

In a world that moves too fast

she’s afraid she’ll never last

but if she holds the faith of a child

she’ll be alright… she’ll be alright

Because she’s just a little girl – time isn’t holding her down

she’s just a little girl – she never needed a crown

she just wants somebody around

who won’t laugh when she laughs too loud

she just wants somebody to see

she’s just a little girl

Stephen Speaks Leaving Song

And everytime I think of you

I’ll remember all the goodtimes that we’ve had

And everytime I sing this tune

I will laugh, I will cry, I will close my eyes

Cause I know that it won’t be long

Until we sing, we will write

We will laugh away the night

And the good times will never end

When we meet again

And I’m gonna be somewhat lonely

cause you know no one could ever fill your shoes

As iron sharpens iron you have taught me how to be a stronger man

And I look forward to the day I learn again

We will sing, we will write

We will laugh away the night

And I know that it won’t be long

Until we meet again

Though I wish that I were with you now

I know there’s a reason for a space

I can dream of memories you’re writing down

And I look forward to that day

And the smile on your face

We will sing, we will write

We might cry and we might fight

And the good times will never end

We will laugh, we’ll relax, we’ll reflect on the years we’ve past

And I know that it won’t be long, until we meet again

And everytime I think of you

Stephen Speaks Trophy

Call her a trophy, say what you will

Tell me it’s nothing, an image to fill,

her face next to mine like a cheap glass of wine

that looks good but just isn’t all there

“I say you don’t know when she smiles

When she laughs at my jokes, I’m alive

I can fly, I’m a better man”

So take all your talking keep to yourselves

I am in love here, forget everything else

Her hand in mine and those cute little lines

on her face when she wrinkles to laugh

“I say you don’t know when she smiles

When she laughs at my jokes, I’m alive

I can fly, I’m a better man”

Stephen Speaks First Glance

When I first met you

That is when I knew

This would be a long road home

When I crawled into your head

That is when I said

With you I want to grow old

‘Cause you’re everything I want

Baby, you are everything I need inside of me

You’re everything I love

And I just want to be, want to be with you, yeah

When I looked into your heart

I knew right from the start

That I wanted you to be mine

When at first I saw your smile

I would crawl a mile

Just to see it one more time

‘Cause you’re everything I want

Baby, you are everything I need inside of me

You’re everything I love

And I just want to be, want to be with you, yeah

It’s true

I want to be with you

I know

We will never be, never be alone, no

And I just want to find

A way to make you mine

Oh now, one more time

‘Cause you’re everything I want

Baby, you are everything I need inside of me

You’re everything I love

And I just want to be, want to be with you, yeah

It’s true

I fell in love with you

I know

We will never be alone

Stephen Speaks Weather

August afternoon and the air’s aflame

softly on the breeze, thought I heard your name

this morning I’d have thought

that it looked like rain

but these clouds have ways of playing games

whether you are weather like

clouds appear and clouds roll by

but if you stay within my sight,

fall in love I just might

yesterday you touched me and I felt the flame

but now the spark’s gone out

and it’s cold again

this morning I’d have thought

that it looked like rain

but you’ve got your ways

oh of playing games

Stephen Speaks Wasting Time

Here again in places I can’t stay

Hearing the phrases I can’t say

So futile for me to be here

Oh I stay, Oh I stay, Oh I stay, and I’m

Wasting time, Wasting time

Wasting time without you

So afraid of everything I’m unaware

Knowing that no one around me cares,

Everywhere I go is empty

I am full of nothing

Still I stay, Still I stay, Still I And I’m

Wasting time, Wasting time

Wasting time without you

Here at your feet I’m feeling quite at home

Knowing that I don’t have to be alone

I think that I can stay here for a while, so

Yes I’ll stay, Yes I’ll stay, Yes I’ll stay

And I’m not wasting time, Wasting time

Wasting time without you

Stephen Speaks Breaking Away

I can feel a north wind blowing

And I know something’s going down tonight

The chains that bind are getting restless

The albatross is getting tight

There are those that feel I’ve waited too long

I should have gotten out by now

I hear the echoes of the shadows of the night

They say this ship is going down

But the church bells chime

And it’s right now

It’s right on time

Cause I’m breaking away

All I will say is I’m not going down today

I’m breaking away

I will leave this place and find a better day

And now the weight is sinking

With the bird the bottom of the sea

And now I can finally say

“The black sheep is no longer me”

And I never fit in your plan

So you left me far behind

But you never really knew me

Cause you never really took the time

And the church bells chime

And it’s right now

And right now’s my time

Cause I’m breaking away

All I will say is I’m not going down today

I’m breaking away

I will leave this place and find a better day

Stephen Speaks Miss Dani

I’m here again in the city

Reminds me of the time I drove to town to pick you up

Then we talked of leaving

We knew the bags we packed in the back would be enough

And it makes me wonder why we didn’t go

Oh no Miss Dani

Why are we here in this town?

We could be driving

We could be to Mexico by now

Now Miss Dani

Why are we here on our own?

We could be together

Laying on a beach in Mexico

Miss Dani

I know timing wasn’t perfect

When you said you wished we had met five years from now

You know I will be waiting

I still think we should have left two weeks go

And i think that deep inside you you still know

Oh now Miss Dani

Why are we here in this town?

We should be driving

We should be to Mexico by now

Now Miss Dani

Why are we here on our own?

We could be together

Lying on a beach in Mexico

And something I don’t want to do

Is leave here without you

You know I could never stay

So I’m leaving anyway

Oh now Miss Dani

Why are we here in this town?

We should be driving

We should be to Mexico by now

Now Miss Dani

Why are we here on our own?

We sould be together

Laying on a beach in Mexico

Now Miss Dani
