William Fitzsimmons Find It In Me

This house is full of secrets that i

Have kept from her for far too long

I hope I make it through the day

My conduct should be suspect and my

Intentions should be checked buy I’m to

Involved in making plans for my soul

Her heart is full of kindness that she’s

Given away and now she is tired

Of all the parts of life that she made

She tries to help out everyone

But I can only help myself

I question whether she knows she’s safe

I hope you find it

Cause I could not find it in me

I can’t say when I’ll leave you for good

My selfish heart hopes you don’t go first

God knows I couldn’t make it one day

I’ll ask that you find someone to help

Like you treated me like you were myself

You broke your back to make it okay

These parts of life that I cannot hold

You carry me along with your load

You’re more than I could ever repay

I hope you find it

Cause I could not find it in me

William Fitzsimmons Find My Way Home

My children are born

But I’m still half afraid

They’ll turn out like me and this mess I’ve made

This marriage I’ve taken for granted for so long

That trip that I took to the school back in March

You stayed with your sister

That girl that I told you was only a friend

Turns out that I kissed her

My sister’s a wreck

She has been for years

She fought with her father

I wonder if he knows she’ll be alright

Because God can fix her.

I know I can’t be forgiven

Why would I try?

I know I can’t be forgiven

Why waste my time?

That guy that you talked to over the phone

You said you were lonely

I gave you permission to call his part

If you cook for me only

I left all my shirts in the closet upstairs

Right next to the bathroom

I wonder if you could make sure they were clean

Before you return them

I know I can’t be forgiven

Why would I try?

I know I can’t be forgiven

Why waste my time?

Because I can’t find my way home

And I don’t know where to go

William Fitzsimmons Maybe Be Alright

I never knew what it was like to be alone

I never wanted you to go back home

I’m so damn sorry for everything I did

I was just a stupid kid

These girls sings songs that I will never know

How love can last if you only let it grow

Were broken too like the fending of heart

But we only had a start

And my heart finds peace tonight

And my soul finds comfort there

In the knowledge that you’ll someday

Maybe be alright

I never wanted you to be alone

I never thought I could make a happy home

I’m so damn sorry for everything I did

But I’m still that stupid kid

And my heart finds peace tonight

And my soul finds comfort there

In the knowledge that you’ll someday maybe

Maybe be alright

William Fitzsimmons Mend Your Heart

She is like the water where I clean my baby

Floating from the front into the back to keep me

warm enough to cover me from getting chilly

Cool enough to hide me from the heat

She is like a splinter that I caught in my toe

running from the dog that chases me

sharp enough to teach a lesson that I must learn

soft enough to never make me bleed

And I will find you there

And I will mend your heart

And I will find you there

And I will mend your heart

She is like a cigarette inside an ashtray

Nothing but a fire sets her free

Filling up my lungs until my body needs her

holding on so I can never breathe

She is like a gravestone sitting in a church yard

Crooked from the ground in which she sleeps

Whispering our name until I go to meet her

Underneath the ground she finds her peace

And I will find you there

And I will mend your heart

And I will find you there

And I will mend… your heart

William Fitzsimmons Ever Could

Don’t it feel like rain today?

Still I think we walk

You have grayed since younger days

In slower rhythm talk

You have been a stronger wind

The guiding of my right

The ever present confidant

A light in these dark eyes

I want you like no one else ever could

I want you like no one else ever could, do you?

I will lay her down tonight

Beneath the grass and bay

Ever she will walk this field

Ever she remains

I want you like no one else ever could

I want you like no one else ever could

I want you like no one else ever could

I want you like no one else ever could, do you?

Don’t you wait for the sky to fall?

Don’t you wait for the sky to fall?

Don’t you wait for the sky to fall?

Don’t you wait for the sky to fall?

William Fitzsimmons So This Is Goodbye

Within half an hour you

will be gone and I won’t see you anymore

You left my love on the line

And said that you were leaving

And you won’t come home again

And you won’t come home again

And I’ll miss you like you’re dead

But I never got to grieve you

Cause I saw you

In the arms of someone else

So your phantom follows me

Like a child would his mother

Or a lover who never said goodbye

It’s only saying goodbye

And I cry myself to sleep

And you thought I was happy

I was lonely

Had nowhere to go

And I heard that you moved on

Found a brand new family

And changed your married name

And everything has changed

And I’ll miss you like you’re dead

And find a way to grieve you

Cause I need to

Try and start again

And your ghost will have to leave

Like a child would his mother

Or a lover

Who has to say goodbye

So this is goodbye

So this is goodbye

So this is goodbye

Goodbye

So this is goodbye

So this is goodbye

So this is goodbye

So this is goodgoodgood

William Fitzsimmons I Kissed A Girl

This was never the way I planned, not my intention

I got so brave, drink in hand, lost my discretion

It’s not what I’m used to, just wanna try you on

I’m curious for you caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it, the taste of her cherry Chap Stick

I kissed a girl just to try it, I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it

It felt so wrong, it felt so right, don’t mean I’m in love tonight

I kissed a girl and I liked it.

No, I don’t even know your name, it doesn’t matter

You’re my experimental game, just human nature

It’s not what good girls do, not how they should behave

My head gets so confused, hard to obey

I kissed a girl and I liked it, the taste of her cherry Chap Stick

I kissed a girl just to try it, I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it

It felt so wrong, it felt so right, don’t mean I’m in love tonight

I kissed a girl and I liked it.

Us girls we are so magical, soft skin, red lips, so kissable

Hard to resist, so touchable, too good to deny it

It ain’t no big deal, it’s innocent

I kissed a girl and I liked it, the taste of her cherry Chap Stick

I kissed a girl just to try it, I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it

It felt so wrong, it felt so right, don’t mean I’m in love tonight

I kissed a girl and I liked it.

William Fitzsimmons Second Hand Smoke

White lines, white sky

Light through a sliding glass door, I

Woke up, washed off the second hand smoke

The second hand smoke

Time did what time does

Burned all the days and years and I

Woke up, washed off the second hand smoke

The second hand smoke

And where did we go so wrong?

I was hiding from the rain and the rolling thunder

And where do we go from here?

I’ll be hoping that somebody will break my cover

Changed plans, washed hands

How do I turn back time

Lay down, breathe in the second hand smoke

The second hand smoke

These lines which bind

Youll never wash me of it now

Float on somewhere in second hand smoke

In second hand smoke, I know

Where did we go so wrong?

I was hiding from the rain and the rolling thunder

Where do we go from here?

I was hoping that somebody would break my cover

Where did we go so wrong?

I was hiding from the rain and the rolling thunder

Where do we go from here?

I was hoping that somebody would break my cover

Where did you go so wrong?

I was scared that someday maybe you’d pull us under

Where do we go from here?

In second hand smoke, in second hand smoke

Secondhand smoke, secondhand smoke

William Fitzsimmons Centralia

I offer myself to you

Though I am a broken thing

A cardinal with severed wing

In morning to hide my face

Though I am a sunderer

Guised in maternal grace

Heir to a crippled crown

My little Elysium

My God how I’ve let you down

Let me fall

Through the ground

Where you fell

Back to you

We burn like Centralia

Lost in the ash below

Hoping to find a home

So far may you run from me

To cities with living leaves

No fire to fear beneath
