Trading Yesterday The Beauty & The Tragedy

Watch your step, love is broken

I am every tear you cry

Save your breath, your heart has spoken

You already have my life

For I am finding out that love will kill and save me

Taking the dreams that made me up

And tearing them away

But the same love will take this heart that’s barely beating

And fill it with hope beyond the stars

Only love

Another day, another sunrise

Washing over everything

In its time, love will be mine

The beauty and the tragedy

For I am finding out that love will kill and save me

Taking the dreams that made me up

And tearing them away

But the same love will take this heart that’s barely beating

And fill it with hope beyond the stars

Only love

Only love, love, love

For I am finding out that love will kill and save me

Trading Yesterday May I

There you stand, opened heart, opened doors

Full of life with a world that’s wanting more

But I can see when the lights start to fade

The day is done and your smile has gone away

Let me raise you up

Let me be your love

May I hold you as you fall to sleep

When the world is closing in

And you can’t breathe here

May I love you, may I be your shield

When no one can be found

May I lay you down

All I want is to keep you safe from the cold

To give you all that your heart needs the most

Let me raise you up

Let me be your love

May I hold you as you fall to sleep

When the world is closing in

And you can’t breathe here

May I love you, may I be your shield

When no one can be found

May I lay you down

All that’s made me is all worth trading

Just to have one moment with you

So I will let go with all that I know

Knowing that you’re here with me

For your love is changing me

May I hold you as you fall to sleep

When the world is closing in

And you can’t breathe

May I love you, may I be your shield

When no one can be found

May I lay you down

Trading Yesterday Come Back To Me

If I hold out my hand

Would it change where you’re standing now?

Just come back to me

Leave all you’ve found

That’s keeping your heart on the ground

Just come back to me

So afraid for love to come around your heart again

When it’s the only thing you need

Just come back to me

Calling out your name

Wishing you could do the same

Just come back to me

Whatever it takes

I will wait until my dying day

Just come back to me

So afraid for love to come around your heart again

When it’s the only thing you need

Just come back to me

This is my only hope

That the love that will not let me go

Will find its way back into your life

So I will not close my eyes

Until I see you by my side

Loving me tonight

If I hold out my hand

Would it change where you’re standing now?

Just come back to me

Trading Yesterday One Day

If I could change the currents of our lives

To make the river flow where it’s run dry

To be a prodigal of father time

Then I would see you tonight

If I could find the years that went away

Destroying all the cruelty of fate

I must believe that love could find a way

Tonight

Lonely finds me

One day you will come

But I’ll wait for love’s sake

One day to me, love

If I could see beyond the here and now

If you could hear me calling you somehow

If I could know that love is reaching out

To find you with me tonight

Then hope could make these promises come true

Beyond what I could say, what love can do

With every moment leading me to you tonight

Lonely finds me

One day you will come

But I’ll wait for love’s sake

One day to me, love

I will stay forever here to wait for your love

If I could change the currents of our lives

To make the river flow where it’s run dry

To be a prodigal of father time

Then I would see you tonight

Lonely finds me

One day you will come

But I’ll wait for love’s sake

One day to me, love

Lonely finds me

One day you will come

But I’ll wait for love’s sake

One day to me, love

One day to me, love

One day to me, love

I will stay forever here to wait for your love

Trading Yesterday Beautiful

And time stands still beneath the air of waiting hours

To touch, just to feel a love that seems to overpower me

She’s all I’ll ever need

And you know her love just hypnotizes me

‘Til All I see is beautiful

At night I dream that you were sent to me from heaven

My Life, it seems so lonely here without your presence

You could change my everyday

And I could never think of love without your name

As you remain—

Beautiful— like the summer rain to wash away the winter stain

Beautiful— like the morning sun inviting the dawn to break

Beautiful— like the joy that comes when the love you’ve longed for has just begun

Beautiful— making everything brand new

Beautiful you

And all this time you’re changing me to something better

A love so high that everyday that we’re together

I will leave the world below

Until your heart becomes the only thing I know

All I know is—

Beautiful— like the summer rain to wash away the winter stain

Beautiful— like the morning sun inviting the dawn to break

Beautiful— like the joy that comes when the love you’ve longed for has just begun

Beautiful— making everything brand new

Beautiful you

Trading Yesterday Elizabeth

There’s a mystery to what her love can do

And she has a way of taking over you

She can hold your heart with every move she makes

But a single smile is really all it takes

She’ll make you forget the way life used to be

Because once you let her in, she will take your everything

Cause her name is always Elizabeth

And she’ll take your heart away and apologize for breaking it

Just the same, love of any other kind

Would simply be a waste of time to me

She will tell me that her loves a day away

And there’s something in her eyes that makes me stay

But her expectations are too great for me

So she’ll leave me for the man I’ll never be

She took all I had from beginning to end

But if I had another chance, I’d probably do it all again

Cause her name is always Elizabeth

And she’ll take your heart away and apologize for breaking it

Just the same, love of any other kind

Would simply be a waste of time

The New York sky’s finding me lonely in love tonight

This way I deal can’t take away what is real

Or change how I feel

Cause her name is always Elizabeth

And she’ll take your heart away and apologize for breaking it

Just the same, love of any other kind

Would simply be a waste of time

Cause her name is always Elizabeth

And she’ll take your heart away and apologize for breaking it

Just the same, love of any other kind

Would simply be a waste of time

Love of any other kind

Would simply be a waste of time to me

Cause her name is always Elizabeth…

Trading Yesterday My Last Goodbye

I’ve got to walk away

While there’s still hope

Learn to erase

The love I know

And let you go

‘Cause what I thought was love

Was only lies

Taking what you want

Left me behind

As my heart dies

So here we are again

Knowing this will never end

So I must let go

This is my last goodbye

Leaving all the memories of you behind

I will not wait here and waste my whole life

And waste my whole life

I can see you now

With opened eyes

When you come around

And realize

That I don’t need you to survive

I will not begin

A fight that we can never win

So I’m letting go

This is my last goodbye

Leaving all the memories of you behind

I will not wait here and waste my whole life

And waste my whole life

My passion, my poison

The life and death of me

I can’t take you taking everything

From a love never meant to be

This is my last goodbye

Leaving all the memories of you behind

I will not wait here and waste my whole life

This is my last goodbye

This will be one final tear for love to die

I will not wait here and waste my whole life

With my last goodbye

With my last goodbye

Trading Yesterday Desert Lands

Standing alone with my heart in your hands

Longing to just breathe you in

You traded our love for a life of desert lands

Giving yourself away again

But I will give my life to win your heart

And I will tear apart my soul

I’ll give away all I know to bring you home

For all that is true, for all of the way

With all of my life

You hold my heart, you have my love

You are my bride

Without a goodbye a passion of lies

Steals you away

The thirst of desire is drawing you in

But the memories of white, the garden

Of life is taken away

But I’m fighting to hold you again

So I will give my life to win your heart

And I will tear apart my soul

I’ll give away all I know to bring you home

For all that is true, for all of the way

With all of my life

You hold my heart, you have my love

You are my bride

Nothing can shatter the promise I

Made to you

Our love will make you whole

I will be faithful, dying to be with you

I will not let you go

But I will give my life to win your heart

And I will tear apart my soul

I’ll give away all I know to bring you home

For all that is true, for all of the way

With all of my life

You are my love, you are my church

You are my bride

Trading Yesterday What I’m Dreaming Of

Welcome to a new beginning

Welcome to a brand new side of me

This will be the life I’m meant to lead

More than just a midlife crisis

This will be a lighthouse in my soul

Taking me to what the future holds

I am not confined to steady ground

For fear of falling, I will fly

So I will live my life

Knowing I’ve got just one chance to make it right

Hope will be on my side this time

To live what I am dreaming of

Tear away my fall back option

Take away the safety net below

I’m taking my chances as I go

Life is more than just survival

Love will be the thing that sets me free

Just a little faith is all I need

I am not inclined to give up now

The sky is calling, I will fly

So I will live my life

Knowing I’ve got just one chance to make it right

Hope will be on my side this time

And I will spend my days

Knowing that the love I give won’t go away

I will not stand and wait for life to come

I will live what I am dreaming of

I will not let failure hold me down

I am not afraid of learning from what comes around

So I will live my life

Knowing I’ve got just one chance to make it right

Hope will be on my side this time

And I will spend my days

Knowing that the love I give won’t go away

I will not stand and wait for life to come

I will live what I am dreaming of

I will live what I am dreaming of

Trading Yesterday Shattered

Yesterday I died, tomorrow’s bleeding

Fall into your sunlight

The future’s open wide, beyond believing

To know why, hope dies

Losing what was found, a world so hollow

Suspended in a compromise

The silence of this sound, is soon to follow

Somehow, sundown

And finding answers

Is forgetting all of the questions we called home

Passing the graves of the unknown

As reason clouds my eyes, with splendor fading

Illusions of the sunlight

And a reflection of a lie, will keep me waiting

With love gone, for so long

And this day’s ending

Is the proof of time killing, all the faith I know

Knowing that faith, is all I hold

And I’ve lost who I am, and I can’t understand

Why my heart is so broken, rejecting your love

Without, love gone wrong, lifeless words carry on

But I know, all I know, is that the end’s beginning

Who I am from the start, take me home to my heart

Let me go and I will run, I will not be silent

All this time spent in vain, wasted years, wasted gain

All is lost, hope remains, and this war’s not over

There’s a light, there’s the sun, taking all shattered ones

To the place we belong, and his love will conquer all

And I’ve lost who I am, and I can’t understand

Why my heart is so broken, rejecting your love

Without, love gone wrong, lifeless words carry on

But I know, all I know, is that the end’s beginning

Who I am from the start, take me home to my heart

Let me go and I will run, I will not be silent

All this time spent in vain, wasted years, wasted gain

All is lost, hope remains, and this war’s not over

There’s a light, there’s the sun, taking all shattered ones

To the place we belong, and his love will conquer all

Yesterday I died, tomorrow’s bleeding

Fall into your sunlight
