the kindest days

i see a swallow perched in front of me
laughing with her eyes so sullenly
the i see a truck go down the way
no delivery for me today

there's a man upon a little bike
that makes him feel so big he can't decide
if he should give up scraping both his knees
for the sake of being so discreet
so discreet

before i know it i am far away
the swallow looks so small she can't complain
i don't remember which warm house is mine
so i choose the one whose love is fine
love is fine



SO DISCREET
you right in front of me
now i can clearly see
all Your greatness
but it separates this
from what i ever heard
you've been holding me like a bird
in Your heart and
You've kept it guarded
now that i clearly see
You standing next to me
my loneliness has finally found an ending

(chorus)
i can't believe
that You're such a part of me
and after all this time You got through
with Your loving ways
and these have been the kindest days
that i've known since i met You

so i will say again
all i have ever been
is walking backwards
chasing after
things that will never be
able to carry me
anywhere but to the ground below me

(chorus)

oh a love that gets underneath my skin
it goes in and shows me the things i've been missing
all i know is i want it now
i think about the days when i won't feel pain

(chorus)



THE KINDEST DAYS
shake the water off my hands
and count the moments
that you really understand this disappointment
tired of always waking up the darkest feeling
think i'll open up these blinds and get to seeing

on a day much quieter than this
i will hold your hand and kiss your face
i think it's imperative you know that i am
not about to

i know that you could feel
like a girl on a ferris wheel
falling down the stairs and then
we could do it again we could to it again...

on a day much quieter than this
i will hold your hand and kiss your face
i think it's imperative you know that i am
not about to
when it seems like everything's fine
just look up and close your eyes
and remember
it's imperative you know that i am
not about to let it go



NOT ABOUT TO

i only spoke to you that way
to get it through your haggard brain
that ic ould be so much more
i could be someone that someone would adore

(chorus)
seems like a long time since i felt good
good enough to not want to cry
do you know better now?
well so do i

the hardest thing is knowing when
i should draw the line and not give in
to all of your tired ways
it's like i've got a second job that never pays

(chorus)

i feel so sick inside i know it's wrong
but i just can't bite my lip and go along
(repeat)



SICK INSIDE
showing your self
in an unusual way
i understand you now
your secrets safe and sound

minding my own
business is not something new
but it takes some self control
not that you would know

(chorus)
i'm my own man now it's easier
climbing the staircase wondering what's to see

my oh my how
this does turn things quite around
tomorrow will be
here before you know it dear

signing my name
in through the window you peek
i'm fixing my mistakes
is this all that it takes

(chorus)



SIGNING MY NAME
should you think anything
you should know that i'm not doing ok
since i've been gone all my problems
have come back around and they're here to stay

i don't know how
anyone could rescue me now

the story goes on and on
i'm always susceptible to think
that i could write my own chapter
i've noticed i cannot change a thing

(chorus)
i don't know how
anyone could rescue me now
so please remind me again
how You'll always be my best friend
show me who You are
hurry, don't be far
i'll give You my heart

and i promise You
i will read into
all the ways You show Your love

(chorus)



MY OWN CHAPTER
she reaches for her latest reading
her pillow's folded
her mind is reeling round

she can't remember
what made this different
before her clock was
fifteen minutes fast

(chorus)
when the morning came
it was just the same
genevieve
like a loaded gun
like a letter bomb
genevieve

she reaches for her latest feeling
she can't control it
her heart is beating
she made her mind up
it's off to sleep now
ti dream about the book she just put down

(chorus)



GENEVIEVE
shade is shelter from the sinking
kind and knowing of my heart

all i know was taken from me
what i perceived had gone away
now i feel the light exposing
things i never thought i'd say

(chorus)
shake me now i might believe
all before me is a dream
and kill the feeling of antipathy

fingers pointing to the ceiling
the faces burned into the walls
the ghost of lies was born this evening
the laughter echoes own the halls

(chorus)

but if you leave it up to me
i won't believe it for myself
and all that's left is too be free
from the pictures on the shelf

shake me now i might believe
all before me is a dream
and kill the feeling of antipathy
i can feel you in my hand
like i did before and when
things were simple we could understand



BASED ON A TRUE STORY
i think you see me
the way that you'd like see
a man that gets nothing done

i think you'd like me to be
as useless as i seem
and leave everything undone

(chorus)
but the little boy i used to be
he had a conscience you could see
and he held it in his hand
he did not understand
that he would soon be me

i think you'd like to know
a place that i won't go
and spend some time

you say you need a friend
to take you by the hand
and sit awhile

(chorus)

if you could only feel this
it's nothing to believe
i ask an honest question
i get a silent scream

when i hear the answer
it's nothing i could see
if someone could have warned you
it takes much more than me

but the little boy i used to be
he had a conscience you could see
and he held it in his hand
he did not understand
that he would soon be free



USELESS
she waits alone
she gets tired
as the day falls down
she seems uninspired
she won't wait
much longer
and the tears held back
make her stronger

in the meantime i get open eyed
to my lowly state of mind

the kindest thing
that she's seen
is an open mouth
without a scream
at her feet
like water
the reflection there
is getting darker

in the meantime i get open eyed
to my lowly state of mind
if i can't hear her
will i ever know
a love that's meant to grow

all my life i've wondered how
the things i've been
could make a difference in the end
but every day it seems more clear
i don't know how i'd make it through
if you weren't here



IN THE MEANTIME
