I know what it feels like, I know what you feel like. I know what it feels like, I know what you feel like. Searching for the daylight, get out of this dark night. Searching for the daylight, get out of my own mind. I know what it feels like, I know what you feel like. I know what it feels like, I know what you feel like. Searching for the daylight, nothing in me feels right. Searching for the daylight, I’m just trying to right/write my life. I know what it feels like, I know what you feel like. I know what it feels like, I know what you feel like.

I left you when I turned eighteen. I left you for a city dream. But city life’s never what it seems, and now I’m back driving through your streets. The film house closed, the café’s gone, Dad is still at the shop, but time, it seems, it never stops. It’s four a.m. there’s no one else around, I’m driving the streets of your town. I left you when I wanted more. How could I know what life had in store? But now I’m back driving past your door, a shadow of the ghost that was before. The film house closed, the café’s gone, Dad is still at the shop, but time, it seems, it never stops. It’s four a.m. there’s no one else around, I’m driving the streets of your town.

I recall July, when the storm had passed and the lightning flashed away from the sky. Did you call my name? Did you say it twice? Like the lightning strikes, and we’re never the same? If I called you up, would it be enough to accept my love? I recall July, when the sky had crashed and the future turned its back on the past. Did you call my name? Did you say it loud? Parting from the crowd, we were never the same. If I called you up, would it be enough to accept my love? Would you call my name, now the storm has passed? Or would you turn your back on what we had? I recall July… I recall July… I recall…

Give a little bit of yourself, babe. Tease a little bit of what you’ve got to show me. Share a little bit of yourself, baby. Give a little bit of what you’ve got to show me. You and me, we don’t have to be like kids— hiding under covers, hiding from eachother. So, give a little bit of yourself, babe. Tease a little bit of what you’ve got to show me.

Golden Heart 03:14
I waited always for you. I waited all time, it’s true. There is nothing in the world between a boy or a girl will do. We took a long drive alone. I gave my young life for home. There is nothing in my heart that wouldn’t do it from the start over again. Now, would you know someone I could hold onto? It’s been awhile since I saw a heart with a golden arc all wrapped around me. We left the party at two. I gave my body to you. There is nothing in the stars that would’ve kept my love apart from you. Now, would you know someone I could hold onto? It’s been awhile since I saw a heart with a golden arc all wrapped around me. Could you show me a golden heart? They’ve been around since the very start. It’s been so hard to pick up my parts all crashed around me.

A rose is all that life shows. How it grows nobody knows, but when it goes… when it goes… My love is all that life shows. Where it goes, nobody knows, but when it grows… when it grows… You came here to love. You came here to grow. You came here to learn. You don’t have to fear. A rose is all that life shows. How it grows nobody knows, but when it goes… when it goes…

Well, I know I have arrived and it’s hard just to survive, but I’ll stay alive. …And it is all right. When the world is at your back and it’s awful what you lack, I’ll stay on tack. …And it is all right. Well, I know I have arrived and it’s hard to live this life, but I’ve got my light. …And it is all right. While the world still lives in song, I know I can carry on. I’ll sing along. …And it is all right.

Now that I’m on my own, there’s nothing to fear. There’s nobody here to put me down. Now that I’m on my way, there’s nothing to say. I’ll keep myself safe for a brand new day. Now that I’m all alone, I’ll go down that road and know that my home is the love I own. Now that I’m my own girl, I’ll build my whole world and know that my heart is where life starts. Now that dark comes to light, I’ll step out of the night to speak the truth that I see and choose my own destiny. Now that I’m on my own, the path now is clear. There’s nobody here to fuck me around. Now that I’m on my way, there’s nothing to say. I’ll save my own fate and put you away.

All I wanted to be is free. All I wanted to see was me. All I can ask is please… just leave me be to the life that’s been kept from me.
