"Chasing Better Days"

 

Lyrics



Rescue

Here’s to the people who have come to the rescue
 Emergency services on radio call
To help you through the trouble that’s anywhere at any given moment
 In the blink of an eye they’re running off and risking it all

There was a good man who now stands as one of many great heroes
 Kissed his family one morning and went off to the calling he chose
Got the word about the horror going down at the Twin Towers
 Saved so many lives but never made it out to save his own
            Danny never made it home

No hesitation in his moment of fear
 Been in his nature to rescue for all these years
A way of life handed down to his inner voice
 This was a chosen profession but he had no choice
            He had no choice, there was no choice
 
He passed the torch on those to go in and rescue freedom
  Was taken hostage and now required a special force
A young soldier brave enough to take this mission on his mighty shoulders
  was just a kid who’s destiny was here to set his life on a treacherous course
            Johnny going off to war, Johnny going off to war

No hesitation in his moment of fear
 The troops have landed and his mission was clear
This call to arms was an honor to his inner voice
 He’s a soldier in battle who had no choice
            He had no choice, there was no choice

My old man he speaks with pride of the Normandy Invasion
 Was sweeping ocean mines in front of ships that brought it all to shore
First in line taking heavy fire to clear the path for liberation
 Gave it up for the rescue better known as the Second World War
            Daddy tells me about the war, Daddy seen the hell of war

Talks of the greatest generation and their moment of fear
 Forced into rescue operations or we wouldn’t be here
The masses answered to the calling of freedom’s voice
 So many sacrificial young lives who had no choice
            They had no choice, there was no choice

Daddy made it through the war, Daddy came home from the war
Momma waiting at the door, to rescue Daddy from the war
She rescued Daddy from the war, Momma rescued Daddy from the war


Better Days Ahead

They’ll be better days ahead
 Making love will rise again
Choosing life, choosing life, over death

Winning ways will end the loss
 Times of peace instead of wars
Needing less, needing less, and having more and more

The end of greed, a different speed
We’ll slow it down, calm it down, come around

Suffer hard in tragic times
 Carry on with loss of lives
Save the world, save the world, save the world

From all it bleeds, a time of need
Keep the peace, cure disease, the starving feast

I’ve seen miracles unfold
 to heal a child and send her home
Inspires life, inspires life, inspires life

She beat disease at record speed
With helping hands, and so much prayers, and all her dares

Cleared the noises in my head
 that are better left unsaid
To quiet down, to quiet down, to quiet down

So I can breathe with a little peace
 And slow it down, and calm it down, come around

They’ll be better days ahead
 Winning ways will rise again
Choosing life, save the world, save the whale

They’ll be peace instead of war
 Healing children coming home
Inspired lives, needing less, and having more and more

Without the greed and no disease
They’ll keep the peace with different needs
The starving feed at record speed
Fulfill your dreams


Hold On

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

For your life, to your love
 so your heart is strong enough
Your soul, your truth
 Your faith through everything

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on

To your dream, and your peace
 of your mind for long enough
Your hope, your time
 Your place in everything

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on for your life


Forgive Me

Please forgive me I never meant to hurt anyone
I’ve made my mistakes and just like you I’m only human
I’ve heard those words spoken by some better folks more than once
 
So please forgive me
 Please forgive me
Please forgive me
 for I knew not what I done

Will you hold it against me for the rest of my natural born day
It would mean so much to living and go very far beyond the eternal grave
If you could find some compassion in a world more often full of none
 
So won’t ya please forgive me
 Please forgive me
Please forgive me
 for I knew not what I done
 
I ask absolution to get on with the rest of this life of mine
I would carry it with me as I slowly serve my own aging time
And move on as a humbled and much better man that I’ll become
 
If you would please forgive me
 Please forgive me
Please forgive me
 for I knew not what I done

Please forgive me
 Won’t ya please forgive me
Please forgive me
 for I knew not what I done

She Cries With No Tears

Such a sense of humor and a unique style
 She’s been out on her own since she was a young child
Took to the streets with her mask and mime
 Supporting herself with the nickels and dimes

I see her crying but she cries with no tears
 Carries herself in performance that’s so sincere
She keeps on struggling for the sake of her art
 No one to turn to since her family has grown apart

I’ve been writing myself in her daily reminder
 So much trouble to reach but so easy to find her
She’ll be warming a chill with a glass of champagne
 Her passion is gone yet it’s ghost remains

I see her crying but she cries with no tears
 I’m always hoping she will say what I want to hear
In her confusion she will see me and go
 When all I wanted was to hold her and say

Hello, hello, hello, hello
Hello, hello, hello, hello

She’s always crying but there’s never a tear
 Surrenders to a performance that makes this clear
A place to guide her through the days into art
 And heal the wounds of surviving a heavy heart


Goodbye Baby (What’s So Good About Bye)

Goodbye Baby, goodbye baby, goodbye baby, goodbye
Goodbye Baby, no more waiting, goodbye baby, goodbye
No matter how hard that we try
 We know it’s time to say goodbye, Goodbye
 What’s so good about bye

When you love what you lose
 you will break, you will bruise
Then you toss and you turn
 while you live and you learn
I learned to love, and I learned to lose
and I need some time to heal, to heal

Goodbye Baby, goodbye baby, goodbye baby, goodbye
Goodbye Baby, no more waiting, goodbye baby, goodbye
It’s time for changes in our lives
 But it’s so hard to say goodbye, Goodbye
 What’s so good about bye

So we loved and we laughed
 then we lost what we shared
Now we hurt and we ache
 as we take what we gave
And I’m hanging on, and I still need time
Just a little more time to heal, to feel

Goodbye Baby, goodbye baby, goodbye baby, goodbye
Goodbye Baby, no more waiting, goodbye baby, goodbye
The truth can hurt but it’s better than lies
 So now we have to say goodbye, Goodbye

We know it’s time to say it
But it’s so hard to say it
So now we have to say goodbye

What’s so good about bye
What’s so good about bye


It’s Not Fair

It's not fair, Not fair to anyone
 But now it's done I lost sight of you
Not fair to me or to you or to anyone
 when you're with someone and never make it through

I tried to let you know my head was full of strife
But never did you show it cut you like a knife

It's not fair, Not fair to anyone
 But now it's done I lost sight of you
Not fair to me or to you or to anyone
 when you're with someone and never make it through

Was lying to myself and played it like the truth
My spoken words they don't tell the story inside you

It's not fair, Not fair to anyone
 But now it's done I lost sight of you

No No Na No No No No No
Na Na Na Na No No No No No

I'll try to let you go and make my sacrifice
The best way that I know to start a brand new life

It's not fair, Not fair to anyone
 But n
ow it's done I lost sight of you
Not fair to me or to you or to anyone
 when you're with someone and never make it through

Chasing Hope

I’m so dead tired and wide awake
 It’s something that’s become routine
It drags me down, rattles my chain
A symptom of a busted dream
 that haunts around and steals my sleep

It’s not one thing it’s everything
 donated to this blessed curse
Controls my mind to over think
 and measure what the price is worth
Far too much it just don’t work
 I gave my best and seen my worst

Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
 down an endless road, carries a heavy load
Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
 Should I leave it alone, go run and hide back home
Night after night, every night
 waiting for a sign
Day after day, every day
 no sign of my fate

Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
 down an endless road, carries a heavy load
Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
 Why can’t I leave it alone, go run and hide back home

Wired and tired and out of sync
 a shell of what I used to be
The money’s gone, I’m on the brink
 of standing somewhere in between
my former self and changing needs
 I’ve had enough I need relief
  I want so bad to set things free
  To shake it loose from this pipe dream

Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
 down an endless road, carries a heavy load
Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
 Time to I leave it alone, go run and hide back home

Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
 down an empty road, carries a heavy load
Hope, I’ve been chasing hope
Time to I leave it alone, go run and hide back home
