The Revivalists When I’m Able

When the night comes and I’m able

I could see you across the table

You’re a shooting star staring at me

I’m paranoid now why are you laughing?

So I called you just to call you

I’m on a roll now still looking for you

Looking out that window pane

I feel the soft rain I’m going down the drain

It’s washing me away

That’s why I called you just to call you

It’s not like I left you at the altar

Got to get this boulder off our shoulder

And make this load here a little bit lighter

If you got something left to say

Would you could you see me

In the daylight you’re a mystery

I catch a cool glimpse and let it stone me

When are we coming closer to what this could be

Somehow I feel a little bit further

Further from the truth it’s not typical

I feel invisible some days I’m miserable

So if you ever want to see me

Just take a load off wild and free

If you got something left to say

Would you could you see me

Because I see you when I am able

Yes I see you

When the truth came out it was you

The Revivalists When I Die

When it’s late at night and dark as hell

Where I’m going to well you know damn well

I ain’t got nobody else to blame

Cause you know it’s my fault and ain’t it a shame

The pearly locks on the pearly gates

ain’t just for show make no mistake

Can nothing I do in this life of sin

make it up enough to ever get me in

So when I die I know in my life

I ain’t done things well, tried to do things right

It’s been a long dark road and try as I might

I can’t make it any closer to the golden light

I’m a long lost soul meant to toil all day

Inmate of my mind, with nothing to say

You can’t break those chains so let them be

I’m not the one who ever held this key

There’s one thing that I know for sure

No matter what I do, there is no cure

For the things I’ve said, the things I’ve done

There’s only one chance it’s his only son

So when I die I know in my life

I ain’t done things well tried to do things right

It’s been a long dark road and try as I might

I can’t make it any closer to the golden light

I’m close to the edge I lit my soul on fire

So when I die I know in my life

I ain’t done things well tried to do things right

It’s been a long dark road and try as I might

I can’t make it any closer to the golden light

I’m close to the edge and holding on

All I can do is set my soul on fire with the golden light

The Revivalists Need You

I don’t need you brain playing tricks on me

I don’t need you double vision that which I sometimes see

I don’t need you heart always beating on me

I don’t need you pit in my stomach

I don’t need you shaky knees

I don’t need you

I don’t need you me

I don’t need you

You need me

You need me

I don’t need you legs refusing to stand

I don’t need you blood boiling

I don’t need you grabbing hands

I don’t need you lungs always getting out of breath

I don’t need you bloodshot eyes refusing me my rest

I don’t need you

I don’t need you me

I don’t need you

You need me

You need me

You need me

You need me

I don’t need you

You need me

I can’t live without you, no no no

I don’t need you

I don’t need you

I can’t live without you

You need me

I don’t need you

You need me

I don’t need you

I don’t need you

You need me

You need me

The Revivalists Men Amongst Mountains

We are men amongst mountains

Pressing into the night

But we know not what we do

We know not what we do

We are the ones

We are the ones

That turned the fire into light

But we know not what we do

With the changes we go through

Love makes it easy

It makes it all right

In the mouth of the wolf we lay

And chase the sun to sleep

If we never come down

We won’t ever come down

It don’t make no difference to me

We are the ones

We are the ones

That turned the fire into light

But we know not what we do

With the changes we go through

Love makes it easy

It makes it all right

Love makes it easy

It makes it all right

To do what we do

Do what we do

Oh I say my prayers in the morning

I get up in the afternoon

And I’m sailing out to no one but you

I scream to the gods above me

Here we go, let me know

Father of mine let me sing you a song

You’ve been singing in the rain

You’ve been singing so long

And I wanna know could I ever be saved?

If I lived a life of lies and a life of love today

Love makes it easy

It makes it all right

Love makes it easy

It makes it all right

The Revivalists Move On

This is a stick up, I’m here for your love

It’s coming with me where I’m going

Just keep your distance so we can end this,

Without making it a headline story

You’ve had your shot but now we’ll do things my way

Her pistols cocked and the flash was blinding

Do you really wanna live your life inside a wishing well

You’ll be spending more than your last dime buying shit that ain’t for sale

Do you really have to scream I love you to a dial tone at 5 am

Thinking things could never be this good again

Move on alone

Move on alone

So rub your eyelids, enjoy the silence

Cuz freedom doesn’t count for nothing

Give in to hunger cuz in the jungle

Everybody’s stealing something

I’m looking back and seeing mass destruction

Covered in ash from your last eruption

Do you really wanna live your life inside a wishing well

You’ll be spending more than your last dime buying shit that ain’t for sale

Do you really have to scream I love you to a dial tone at 5 am

Thinking things could never be this good again

Move on alone

Do you really wanna live your life inside a wishing well

You’ll be spending more than your last dime buying shit that ain’t for sale

Do you really have to scream I love you to a dial tone at 5 am

Thinking things could never be this good again

Move on alone

The Revivalists Up In The Air

Joanie packed her bags

Made sure to bring her mate’

Told her mom and dad that

She never met nobody else

Quite like lee

He moved down from Oregon in the rain

Established a connection with an underground king

They’ll have it all, in the blink of an eye

I’m the only one who knows how this happened all so fast

We both grew up together

I thought I knew this love would last

Guess I was wrong, Heaven song, goodness gone

In the blink of an eye

She’s a very pretty girl

With a magnolia smile

In this white wedding world

It only takes a little while

To get what you want

When no one’s looking in

There’s a river running through

The backwoods of her brain

It brought a rapid fast delivery

Of aqua colored pain, that no one could see

Pity please, pretty please goes on in the night

They’re trading places, they’re missing faces

Their wanted poster’s on the wall

They’re keeping pace with

Two hopped up hippies in the Superdome

Mama calling on the phone, when you coming home?

She’s a very pretty girl

With a magnolia smile

In this white wedding world

It only takes a little while

To get what you want

When no one’s looking in

Go get what you want

When no one’s looking in

So I keep an eye out for the bright searchlight

I swear I’ll never let you down again

And if we try with all our mite

Maybe we can reach the shore again

But there’s something in the air

That’s keeping me up, and I know why…

So I keep an eye out for the bright searchlight

I swear I’ll never let you down again

And if we try with all our might

Maybe we can reach the shore again

I’ve searched for you all my life

Stealing in those backwood halls again

It’s up in the air the feelings we shared

I never know just where to begin

The Revivalists Appreciate Me II

Hey there babe

You know I came in late

Because you just don’t appreciate me

I came in around four

Blew out the whole back door

Because you just don’t appreciate me and now you’ll see

That I’ll be holding on

To you baby all of my days have been blown rolling around in this haze

And you could fly a starship ahead and be a soul captain mama ’cause I know you love me

These lessons are true they do exactly what they’re supposed to do

So now say what you want mama say what you will my love is on the table now

It’s been cooking up right for years now it’s gone after all them tears

And you could fly a starship ahead and be a soul captain mama ’cause I know you love me

These lessons are true they do exactly what they’re supposed to do

You just don’t appreciate me

Now I’m gone

Babe you know

I’m gone we’re up in this fire light

Chasing that starry night

Wishing this love went right

It went wrong it went wrong

Now the jukebox plays

Those songs from the days

When life was just to easy getting by was just a phase you

Heard that sweet song

But they mixed it all wrong

And when you came by booboo I know you’re in the wrong

So when you come by next Sunday afternoon

I’ll be up in the living room smoking on some boom boom

Playing this guitar for a half an hour more

If you come on over I’m gonna give you something more tonight

To keep holding on to

My love baby all of my days have been blown rolling around in this haze

And you could fly a starship ahead and be a soul captain mama ’cause I know you love me

These lessons are true they do exactly what they’re supposed to do

‘Cause you just don’t appreciate me

The Revivalists Amber

Amber I can hear the sound

Watching over you

Watching over you

I know you can break the spell

Possibly true

Possibly true

Amber I can hear the sound

It’s watching over you

It’s watching over you

And I know you can break the spell

It’s possibly true

It’s possibly true

I know you’re just like me

You want a piece of the party

I can’t take it right now

I know you’re just like me

You want a piece of the party

But I can’t take it right now

Yeah I’m hopping on a plane tonight

I don’t know where I’m going to/gonna go, no

Somewhere to get my feelings right

There’s so much she doesn’t/don’t know

I never took that easy way

And I don’t care about that open road

My heart’s well worn bad

And it’s chilling in a rusty pool

Amber I can hear the sound

It’s watching over you

It’s watching over you

I know you can break the spell

It’s possibly true

It’s possibly true

I know you’re just like me

You want a piece of the party

I can’t take it right now

I know you’re just like me

You want a piece of the party

But I can’t take it right now

I know you’re just like me

You want a piece of the party

I can’t take it right now

I know you’re just like me

You want a piece of the party

I can’t take it

I can’t take it

I can’t take it

I’ll see you through the night

I’ll see you through the fight

I’ll see you through the night

I’ll see you through the fight

I’ll see you through the fight

I’ll see you

I’ll see you through the fight

I’ll see you through the fight

The Revivalists Monster

She said she wanna tell me everything all night long

She said she wanna get her name into a song

So we go dancing in the daylight and everything is good right now

I can hold my pain in and we can have our love for a while

But you better stop and save yourself

You could have anyone else

Stop, save yourself

You could have anyone else

Stop, save yourself

You could have anyone else

Stop, save yourself

You better save yourself

She said she wanna get up into my biz for a day

And I could have her I could keep her but I can’t make it rain

So I’m listening to the rain drum listening to the silent sound, yeah

While I’m hearing everybody else screaming out loud

Boy you better stop, save yourself

You could have anyone else

Stop, save yourself

You could have anyone else

Stop, save yourself

You could have anyone else

Stop, save yourself

You better save yourself

You better save yourself

Yeah I’m sleeping with a snake tonight

And nowadays what’s wrong feels right

I was a bastard of the worse kind

I looked you in the eyes still told you a lie

Drinking cheap champagne, no I can’t complain

Pushed into the lights these are the pressures of fame

And it’s still all good there’s only one thing wrong

You know what it is and I told you

Well I’m a monster

I’m turning into a monster

And I don’t want to be a monster anymore, no

I’ve got to leave you alone

But I can’t leave you alone

The Revivalists Not Turn Away

All I can see are blurs of red and yellow

Through the raindrops on my windshield

Nothing is clear to me but it seems nobody’s moving

Is it an accident or just me nowhere to go

I hope that you will follow me ’cause

It’s you that I’ve been missing

I hope that you were listening

When I said that you could be the only one

And what did I say to make you doubt me

And after that night

When you began to come around

What could I have done to make you stay

Not turn away

The windshield wipers screech me back to consciousness

It seems that it’s stopped raining

The sky has cleared up the southern stars are shining

The thought of you has got me blinded

The radio plays a story of redemption

Drowns out the leaking tire’s hissing

I hope that you were listening when I said

That you could be the only one

What did I say to make you doubt me

And after that night

When you began to come around

What could I have done to make you stay

Not turn away

I want to be the light the light in your eyes every smile and

I want to be the one who loves you

I got a feeling inside you know it makes me feel like dying

‘Cause you know I’m always thinking of you

I remember a time looking down that long road

It was you and me and mystery

We’d go for a ride drink a toast to happy endings

But now the bottle’s dry and empty

Now that you’re gone never to return again

Everything we had was history

Hope that you are listening when I say

I have found my only one and

Nothing I could say would make her doubt me

And every night the sun descends into the ground and

She’s the only one I want to stay

And not turn away.
