The Fray The Wind

Oh, my God, I think I’m lost at sea

These silent waves are my company

And, I lost the line between the sky and sea

I’m wondering will the wind ever come for me.

Yeah.

‘Cause I don’t know, I don’t know where I am

Can you tell me, will I break or will I bend?

Will the wind ever come again?

I feel the sun coming up, rising from the east

I see the empire falling to her knees

I lost the line between her and me

My troubles are gone if the wind ever comes for me.

Yeah.

‘Cause I don’t know, I don’t know where I am

Can you tell me, will I break or will I bend?

Will the wind ever come again?

I dreamed I found the shoreline

You’re standing there

I dreamed I found you waiting.

You were waiting for me, waiting for me.

I try to kiss the emptiness,

I lost the line between the sky and sea

I feel the sun coming up, coming up, coming up, coming up

And I don’t know, I don’t know where I am

I will break or I will bend

Will the wind ever come again?

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

The Fray Oceans

Figure since I’m so far gone, oceans away, I can lay my sabre down today.

I miss the words I love the words, you did not say.

I miss the kiss you never

gave away.

There goes the sun, oceans away

And days die young when you’re gone and you’re gone

There goes the sun, oceans away

And leaves the day for someone else

Honestly I thought that we could make it all the way,

Barefoot on beaches dancing against the gray.

But stone by stone the castle crumbled to the ground,

I stood and stared as you started to fall into the waves.

There goes the sun, oceans away

And days die young when you’re gone and you’re gone

There goes the sun, oceans away

And leaves the day for someone else

Here’s to the man of your dreams.

I take it all in a box and make my way down to the shore,

Throw it in and begin to leave it to the waves

The Fray Little House

She doesn’t look, she doesn’t see

Opens up for nobody

Figures out, she figures out

Narrow line, she can’t decide

Everything short of suicide

Never hurts, nearly works

Something is scratching

Its way out

Something you want

To forget about

A part of you that’ll never show

You’re the only one that’ll ever know

Take it back when it all began

Take your time, would you understand

What it’s all about?

What it’s all about?

Something is scratching

Its way out

Something you want

To forget about

No one expects

You to get up

All on your own with

No one around

The Fray Uncertainty

Uncertainty is killing me

And I’m certainly not asleep

Maybe I’ve gone far to deep

Maybe I’m just far to weak

Ands that’s the last place

I want to be the last place

And there is so much we don’t know

So we love and we hope that it holds

Thousands were lost maybe more

The question remains, what is this for?

Maybe it came unexpected

Maybe I’m left unprotected

And that’s the last place

I want to be the last place

And there is so much we don’t know

So we love and we hope that it holds

And either we say or we show

So I’m going to fight for my own

I’m holding on until the last

I’m holding on until there’s nothing left

I’m holding on until the last

I’m holding on until there’s nothing left

The Fray Streets Of Philadelphia

I was bruised and battered

And I couldn’t tell what I felt

I was unrecognizable to myself

See my reflection in a window

And I don’t know my own face

Oh brother, please don’t leave me wastin’ away

On the streets of Philadelphia…

I walk this avenue

’til my legs feel like stone

I hear the voices of friends vanished and gone

At night I can hear the blood

Runnin’ through my veins

Just as black and whispering as the rain

On the streets of Philadelphia…

Philadelphia…

Ain’t no angel gonna greet me

It’s just you and I, my friend

These clothes, they don’t fit me anymore

I’ve walked a thousand miles and I wanna slip this skin

Night has fallen

And I’m lyin’ awake

I can feel myself fading away

So receive me brother

With your faithful kiss

Or we will leave each other alone like this

On the streets of Philadelphia…

Philadelphia…

The Fray Wherever This Goes

We could slow down

Waste away in this town

Standing on the sidewalk

Watching this parade

Or we could get out

Pack our suitcase right now

Find ourselves a bus stop,

Make our own way!

Cause it feels like I’ve been here forever

Afraid to beat my father, and afraid to leave him too

But it’s my name I painted on the doorway

Tells me where I came from and what I gotta do!

Wherever this goes (goes), no matter how far (far)

Baby, you are the song that’s written on my heart

Wherever we stand, wherever we fall

It don’t matter at all, cause I will be forever yours

From this moment till the day the curtains close

Wherever this goes!

So we’re here now

Finally found our way out

On the road to some place,

Some place that we don’t know!

But it’s alright,

Keep on driving all night

Straight on through to till morning,

I don’t know which way to go

Cause it feels like we’ve been here forever

I don’t know how much farther or where we’re going to

But it’s our name painted on the doorway

Tells us where we came from and what we gotta do, oh, oh, oh

Wherever this goes (goes), no matter how far (far)

Baby, you are the song that’s written on my heart

Wherever we stand, wherever we fall

Don’t matter at all, cause I will be forever yours

From this moment till the day the curtains close

Don’t matter at all, cause I will be forever yours

Wherever this goes! No matter how far,

Baby you are the song that’s written on my heart

Wherever we stand, wherever we fall

Don’t matter at all, cause I will be forever yours

From this moment till the day the curtains close

Don’t matter at all, cause I will be forever yours

Wherever this goes [3x]

The Fray Syndicate

Halfway around the world

Lies the one thing that you want

Buried in the ground, hundreds of miles down

First thing that arises in your mind while you awake

Is bending you til you break

Let me hold you now

Baby close your eyes

Don’t open til the morning light

Baby don’t forget

You haven’t lost it all yet

Don’t know what your made of

Til the one thing that you want

To come in with the dawn and suddenly changes

Monday, syndicate meets everyone the same

But all we’ve lost to the flame

Listen to me now

Baby close your eyes

Don’t open til the morning light

Don’t ever forget

We haven’t lost it all yet

All we know for sure

Is all that we are fighting for

Baby don’t forget

We haven’t lost it all yet

Someday when this is over

We may still have no answer

For now it’s when I hold ya

We are closer, we are closer

We are closer, we are closer

Baby close your eyes

Don’t open til the morning light

Don’t ever forget

We haven’t lost it all yet

And all we know for sure

Is all that we are fighting for

Baby don’t forget

We haven’t lost it all yet

We are closer

We are closer

(We haven’t lost it all yet)

Now we are closer

(We haven’t lost it all yet)

We are closer

The Fray Enough For Now

The Daughters’ Father watches, quietly we assume

He’s no longer with us but he left this dusty room

And your name it’s an honor

It’s a shame but it’s your honor

To take it on your shoulder

’til you can find another

[Chorus]

That’s enough for now

He should have never left you broken

He should have held you

Things your Father never could do

That’s enough for now

He would have never left you broken

He would have held you

Things your Father never told you

The century before you, never could turn 21

Years and years he waited, just watching for a son

someone to go ahead, to take the name instead

Years and years he waited, but a daughter came instead

[Chorus]

But that’s enough for now

He should have never left you broken

He should have held you

Things your Father never could do

That’s enough for now

He would have never left you broken

He would have held you

Things your Father never told you

Breathing comes in pairs

Except for twice

One begins and one’s goodbye

60 years of sorrow, he got 5 or 6 of bliss

Left my mothers’ mother

Without so much as a kiss

As a kiss

[Chorus]

And that’s enough for now

He never wanted to leave you broken

He would have held you

Things your father never could do

That’s enough for now

I would have never left you broken

I would have held you

Things your father never could doooo

Words your father never told you

60 years of sorrow, he got 5 or 6 of bliss

Left my Mothers’ mother

Without so much as a kiss

The Fray Corners

Home is where my head lays

On this pillow on your chest

Here is where my heart stays

Even when it’s not the best

And I can see all of the lights

And I can see the other sides

And it’s nice

Mmm, it’s nice

I keep finding

I keep finding something

I keep finding all your corners

I keep finding

I keep finding something

I keep finding all your corners

It is nice

Real close and personal

It’s a different point of view

Every turn is critical

Walking on the edge of you

I can see all of the lights

And I can see the other sides

And it’s nice

Mmm, it’s nice

I keep finding

I keep finding something

I keep finding all your corners

I keep finding

I keep finding something

I keep finding

When everything you love goes bad

You love until they love you back

It doesn’t matter what we said

I’ll never stop loving you back

Never stop loving you

I’m falling

Ever since you came

Are you all in? Or have you changed?

I’m calling for you name

Are you? Are you?

No matter where the wind may blow

I wanna be there when you’re old

I’m falling

Since you came

Are you? Are you?

I keep finding

I keep finding something

I keep finding all your corners

I keep finding

I keep finding something

I keep finding

When everything you love goes bad

You love until they love you back

It doesn’t matter what we said

I’ll never stop loving you back

When everything you love goes bad

You love until they love you back

It doesn’t matter what we said

I’ll never stop loving you back

Never stop loving you

The Fray The Fighter

The lover held her love

She begged him not to go

The fighter wrapped his gloves

The fighter said I know, I know, I know

Just this one last time

I swear you’ll still be mine

But he can’t promise much

He goes for one last touch

One last touch

Maybe we were meant to be lonely, lonely

Maybe we were meant to be on our own

Loneliness has always been with me, with me

But maybe we don’t have to be all alone

The fighter goes inside

The doubt is creeping in

He swings with all his might

At all that might have been

And she’s in love with him

But lovers don’t always win

He never even saw the swing

She calls out his name, calls his name

Maybe we were meant to be lonely, lonely

Maybe we were meant to be on our own

Loneliness has always been with me, with me

But maybe we don’t have to be all alone

What breaks your bones

Is not the load you’re carrying

What breaks you down

Is all in how you carry

The lover held her love

She begged him not to go

She unwrapped his gloves

The lover said I know, I know, I know

Kissed his trembling lips

She touched his fingertips

But somehow they both know

He’s not coming home, coming home

Loneliness has always been with me, with me

Maybe we were meant to be on our own

But I got to try or it will destroy me

Cause maybe we don’t have to be all alone
