  • 03:20 Story Lyrics Impossible, Impossible

    V1:

    Looking Deep Inside The Well, Inside The Well

    Looking Deep Inside

    Throwing Stones Inside The Well, Inside The Well

    Throwing Stones Inside

    Ch:

    Could It Be Impossible, Impossible

    Could It Be To Feel So Deep

    'Cause I Could Drown In All My Insecurity

    Or, Get Back On My Feet

    V2:

    Crossed An Ocean To Be Right Here, To Be Right Here

    Oh, To Be Right Here

    Touched The Wave As It Came Rolling In

    As It Rolled Right In

    Ch:

    Could It Be Impossible, Impossible

    Could It Be To Feel So Deep

    'Cause I Could Drown In All My Insecurity

    Or, Get Back On My Feet...

  • 02:32 Story Lyrics Don't Give Up (2015 Demo)

    Don't Give Up

    Hide behind a bottle

    Hide behind a vice

    It always served you well

    You're keen to pay the price

    Used to be so angry that it spilled out

    of your veins

    But you've been getting over the sum

    of all that pain.

    Ch:

    So don't give up, don't give up

    You're gonna see the rainbow

    Love will fill up all your cup.

    Don't give up, don't give up

    You're gonna see that rainbow

    Love will fill up all your cup.

    Fill up all your cup.

    -

    Don't need the white lies

    Don't need the fear

    But, don't you be afraid

    To unleash all those tears

    You always feel the need

    To stand as though you're strong

    But emotion is reality

    And realness can't be wrong

    -

    Ch

    -

    Remember to laugh

    Remember to play

    You're only here a while

    And then we go away

    So blaze a wild trail

    Take another bend

    When you come around the corner

    Bliss will find you in the end.

  • 03:41 Story Lyrics Diamond Hands (2011 Demo)

    Diamond Hands - (Written 2007- L Diaz)

    Diamond hands, one night stands

    He joked about it, but the shoe falls where it lands

    He had some dreams, had some plans

    Wasn't just about pleasing all his fans

    (no, no, no, no__no, no, no)

    -

    He was a man, lonely with regret

    Using the bottle, trying to forget

    There were some loves, there were some leaves

    Looking at him, he's not quite all he seems

    (no, no, no, no__no, no, no)

    -

    Diamond hands, he's just a man

    Loves his family, will do all that he can

    To make things right, he'll always fight

    When he states his words, he'll try to do it right

    (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah_yeah, yeah, yeah)

    -

    Don't mistake his smile and attitude

    For the inside of this contemplative dude

    He may be holding back the tears

    But he's just as good at masking all his fears

    (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah_yeah, yeah, yeah)

    -

    Diamond hands, one night stands

    He didn't choose this life, it fell into his hands

    He had a woman, given her his name

    She broke his heart, and he wasn't quite the same

    (no, no, no, no__no, no, no)

    -

    He's coming back though, stronger than before

    Don't wanna battle those demons anymore

    He's got his art, a great big heart

    And that's the building blocks for his brand new start

    (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah_yeah, yeah, yeah)

  • 04:23 Story Lyrics Everyday Song (2011 Demo)

    Everybody needs an Everyday Song

    To get you through the everyday throng

    Of birth and death and in-between

    For most of us the average scene

    *

    Chorus:

    Well, everyone, yeah, everyone goes away

    Yeah, everyone, yeah, everyone goes away

    *

    Everyday I build a karmic bridge

    With links to people all-around

    Good or evil I forge a trail

    That I have to walk along

    *

    It's not unusual at the end of the day

    To feel spent and needy in some way

    Feeling passed along on the conveyor belt

    Of human trouble and pained self-doubt

    *

    Chorus:

    Well, everyone, yeah, everyone goes away

    Yeah, everyone, yeah, everyone goes away

    Yeah, everyone goes away someday

    *

    Can't blame others when you've lost the glow

    The way you play or treat your soul

    Toil and tumble and fall in-line

    Losing track of what's divine

    *

    Chorus:

    Well, everyone, yeah, everyone goes away

    Yeah, everyone, yeah, everyone goes away

    Yeah, everyone goes away someday

    Everyone goes away Someday

    Everyone, Everyone, Someday

    Everyone, Everyone, Someday

    Everyone, Everyone, Someday

  • 05:15 Story Lyrics Keep Movin' (2011 Demo)

    Hey, this is a story about living in the right now

    'Bout being grateful for the past

    The lessons learned and the lessons still to come

    My, the days go by so fast

    *

    Just gotta keep movin'

    Gotta keep groovin'

    Don't let the daily grind get you low

    Have faith in your own way

    Remember to go play

    Just like a child learning to run

    Hey, we all need a little fun

    Yeah, we all need a little fun

    *

    Yeah, you feel the weight of the world

    Sometimes feel tired and blue

    And there's been moments of pain and rejection

    But you manage to pull through

    And there are times when you may not have the answers

    Well, is that really true?

    'Cause you got senses and instincts like radar,

    And, yeah, they talk to you

    (And they say)

    Chorus:

    Just gotta keep movin'

    Gotta keep groovin'

    Don't let the daily grind get you low

    Have faith in your own way

    Remember to go play

    Just like a child learning to run

    Hey, we all need a little fun

    Yeah, we all need a little fun
