Tyler Ward Paper Heart

In the parking lot of a 7-11

With a picture of you like a picture of heaven

But my tears fall down upon the wheel

Breaking apart is how I feel

Just how I feel

Cuz I’ve been shot down

Everybody turn around

To the sound of my breaking heart

Just burn, everybody take a turn

Light a match under my paper heart

Yeah, oh c’mon

A lonely song plays through the radio

I’m lost with no place to go

And as the moon shines down

Through my windshield

I look for something green

Cuz I’ve been shot down

Everybody turn around

To the sound of my breaking heart

Just burn, everybody take a turn

Light a match under my paper heart

Shot down

Everybody turn around

To the sound of my breaking heart

Just burn, everybody take a turn

Light a match under my paper heart

Yeah

Why did you go

So far away (so far away)

Far away (far away)

I have to know

If there’s a way

This might change

Until then I’ll just say

That I’ve been

Shot down

Everybody turn around

To the sound of my breaking heart

Just burn, everybody take a turn

Light a match under my paper heart

Shot down

Everybody turn around

To the sound of my breaking heart

Just burn, everybody take a turn

Light a match under my paper heart

Yeah,

My paper heart

Yeah, c’mon

Tyler Ward Beginning Of A Bad Idea

Comfortable like an old sweater

Memorable, you just can’t forget her

Starting over is the hardest thing to do

History has a way of repeating

Eventually we’ll just do the same thing

Starting over is impossible with you

[Chorus:]

So don’t pick up anymore

When I call you up

Cause it’s the beginning

Of a bad idea

A bad idea

Loneliness has a way of magnifying this

Feeling that I‘m still not, no I’m not over you

[Chorus:]

So don’t pick up anymore

When I call you up

Cause it’s the beginning

Of a bad idea

A bad idea

I’m still in love with you

Guess I’ll love you from a distance

[Chorus:]

So don’t pick up anymore

When I call you up

Cause it’s the beginning

Of a bad idea

A bad idea

Tyler Ward The Hanging Tree

Out of the East never see the sunrise

Spoon fed peace, swallowing knives

We know that promise is sweet,

But it’s laced with venom

And we’re their living sacrifice

Oh

Now baby

One by one you line us up, two

By two, and three you’ll send us home

Are you, are you

Coming to the tree

They strung up a man,

They say who murdered three

Strange things did happen here,

No stranger would it be

If we met at midnight in the hanging tree

Jack rabbit on the rooftop now

Your magic can be seen for miles

Stop sellin’ all our dreams to the wild

Can you hear us

Jack rabbit on the rooftop now

Your magic can be seen for miles

Can you hear us

How-how-howl, yeah

How do you see while the black crow flies

Caught between who’s wrong and right

It’s cruel, your game to gain momentum

But go on and feast your eyes

Oh

Now baby

One by one you line us up, two

By two, and three you’ll send us home

Are you, are you

Coming to the tree

Where I told you to run,

So we’d both be free

Strange things did happen here,

No stranger would it be

If we met at midnight in the hanging tree

Jack rabbit on the rooftop now

Your magic can be seen for miles

Stop sellin’ all our dreams to the wild

Can you hear us

Jack rabbit on the rooftop now

Your magic can be seen for miles

Can you hear us

How-how-howl, yeah

Are you, are you

Coming to the tree

Wear the necklace of hope,

Side by side with me

Strange things did happen here,

No stranger would it be

If we met at midnight in the hanging tree

Tyler Ward Some Kind Of Beautiful

Gotta take a chance running after somebody [x4]

Driving home in the rain

Seven miles from lover’s lane

Got her taste on my lips

Still feel her on my fingertips

And now she makes me feel

Like I’ll never be alone again

Cause I’ve never had love like this

Her eyes, that smile

Can make the young boys stay awhile

I took a picture with my memory

So I can fall asleep

With you next to me all the time

She makes me feel like I’ll never be alone again

Cause I’ve never known love like this

[Chorus:]

And you are some kind of beautiful

(Gotta take a chance running after somebody) [x2]

And you are some kind of beautiful

We’re alone

I am safe

All my fears fades away

I am home in your gaze

Will you stay

Will you stay

And now she makes me feel like I’ll never be alone again

Cause I’ve never known love like this

[Chorus:]

And you are some kind of beautiful

(Gotta take a chance running after somebody) [x2]

And you are some kind of beautiful

I fall asleep with you next to me

Memorize the sound of your heartbeat

It’s beating loud from this point of view

I can’t believe that you’re near me

You took all that I’m fearing

And turned all my skies to blue

[Chorus:]

And you are some kind of beautiful

(Gotta take a chance running after somebody) [x2]

And you are some kind of beautiful

Gotta take a chance running after somebody [x4]

Tyler Ward Use Me

I send a simple I miss you yesterday

Wasn’t surprised you didn’t answer right away

Probably the lights flight heared you on the radio

So when you called back I just smiled

Small talk no details of your life

Then you cut to the point of what wasn’t right

We haven’t talked for a while

Now you finally have some time to explain your side

She said

You used me

You won’t use me anymore

No not anymore

No

And you used to be

You used to be what I was looking for

No not anymore

Give me a minute so I understand your side

You’re telling me you thought our love was just a lie

If all the secrets that I shared were a disguise

Then explain the tears I cried

I always listened when you shared your fears and doubts

What about the nights lying there on my couch

The stage was set for a fairytale

And I wasn’t acting out

So what’s with the fall out

She said

You used me

You won’t use me anymore

No not anymore

No

And you used to be

You used to be what I was looking for

But not anymore

I guess the point of this song

Is to tell you I think of you

A little to often and

If my name comes up ever round in your world, yeah

I hope you know I was doing my best

The best that I knew how

And you were too

So can we move on now

Tyler Ward Everything

I whisper softly in the air

I’m alone when you’re not here

And no one can take your place

Can be what you need me to be?

will that be enough for you?

Cause the past I can’t erase

I could never get this right

These tears keep falling from my eyes

I just need you by my side.

And all I believe

Is that you’re my everything

Please don’t walk away

All I can breathe

Is the air of you and me,

Please don’t turn away

Hold me close for one more night

lie to me say we’re fine

Even though we’re not okay

It was me that needed to breathe

and time has let me see

That you color all my grays.

And, I could never get this right

and these tears keep falling from my eyes

can I change your mind?

Because all I believe

Is that you’re my everything

Please don’t walk away

All I can breath

Is the air of you and me

Just hold me in this pain

Tyler Ward Trench Coat Angel

Last night, under city lights

I was wandering

Across the street, he stared at me

7 feet, a trench coat angel

Through a smokey haze, he looked my way

And said, could I have minute please?

I have got something you need

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes

At least you know you’re livin

The debts and pain, from when you strayed

Well man, all’s forgiven

All’s forgiven

I’ve seen it all, the rise and fall

Ten thousand years of living

From Rome to Spain, Berlin, L.A

People still pretending

You fight your wars, but what’s it for

Trust me, they’re never ending

You better wake up, the end is your beginning

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes

At least you know you’re livin

The debts and pain, from when you strayed

Well man, all’s forgiven

All’s forgiven

Love, it is enough

When it comes to us

Let’s make it right

Love, it is enough

When it comes to us

We’ll make it right

Love, it is enough

When it comes to us

We’ll make it right

Tyler Ward The Way We Are

[Verse 1:]

I’m backseat to your freeway

This could never be safe

Cause, I might get lost in you

I’m just a little bit defeated

I’ve got my reasons

One being you’re just passing through

You know I love you but I’m

Feeling afraid, you never say

One thing to keep me holding on

You push me away

[Chorus:]

Why do you lie beside me?

When you never have time

And you’re fine without me?

And I, think it’s pretty unlikely,

That the words on your mind

Could ever inspire me

To stay and love the way we are [x2]

[Verse 2:]

Every time you are lonely

Why am I the only one

You come running to

Got me saying that “I love you”

When I know that the truth is

You could trade me for something new

You keep me hanging like you’re

So unaware, you’re never there

You should know better but you don’t

And it’s never fair

[Chorus:]

Why, do you lie beside me,

When you never have time

And you’re fine without me

And I, think it’s pretty unlikely,

That the words on your mind

Could ever inspire me

To stay and love the way we are [x2]

[Bridge:]

Somebody wake

Somebody shake me from

The hold she has on me

I’m so afraid

I wanna be saved but what

If she let’s go of me

If she let’s go of me?

Yeah

[Chorus:]

Why, do you lie beside me,

When you never have time

And you’re fine without me

And I, think it’s pretty unlikely,

That the words on your mind

Could ever inspire me

To stay and love the way we are [x2]

Tyler Ward Slo Mo

Stop. Pause. Take a minute

Let this bring you back to a place that you remember

We were young, cool, naive

Hair was blowing backwards the California breeze

I was smiling back at you as you were looking back at me

Driving Santa Monica your hand upon my knee

And I was kissing you

Wasn’t missing you

Do you remember too

[Chorus:]

I remember talking in the dark

Until we saw the sunlight

Girl we had a spark

We let go

Underneath the stars

Drinking up the moon light

Taking our time

Living in slow motion, slow motion

Didn’t learn the lessons that they taught us back in school

Fell in love with taking chances so we broke all of the rules

And I never knew the meaning of, “I’ve got something to lose”

Till I lost you, I lost you

[Pre-Chorus:]

So come on baby

Let’s take a slow rude to living a good life

Don’t say maybe

We’ll take our time

[Chorus:]

Talking in the dark

Until we see the sunlight

Girl we have a spark

So let’s go

Underneath the stars

Drinking up the moonlight

Taking our time

Living in slow motion, slow motion

I still thing about you and all our memories

Late night dancing to that Marvin Gaye

First time, back seat, Chevrolet

So can we live it, can we live it again

So pack your bags for a getaway

We take a trip back to our hideaway

Keep it old fashioned on the modern day

So can we live it [x4]

in slow motion

[Chorus:]

Talking in the dark

Until we see the sunlight

Girl we have a spark

So let’s go

Underneath the stars

Drinking up the moonlight

Taking our time

Living in slow motion, slow motion
