Lyrics

"It Don’t Matter at All"

I couldn’t sort it out
I couldn’t find the Way
I couldn’t take my heart to the limit
Oh, I was too cynical, frayed

No one knows for sure
But no one’s ever wrong
You’ll only dance when you hear a kick drum
Love, it doesn’t come from a song

So I just say it don’t matter
Say it don’t matter at all

Feeling closer now
Feeling high above
I think it’s ‘cause I’m not in the middle
Of all the things that belittle Love

They all want to stay
Never wanting more
If this is all I got, I’m not waitin’
We’re all here to ask and explore

So I just say it don’t matter
Say it don’t matter at all

Every night I’m waiting for you now
And your heart’s breaking over how
I can’t fake it to be found
Can’t you see I ain’t coming back down

Feeling closer now
Feeling high above
All I know is- Love you can’t just take it
No, you gotta make it and trust

The rest I just say it don’t matter
Say it don’t matter at all

"Work"

I think that I just found the truth
Live in Light and see outside of you
Even though we’re just passing through
A man still has his work to do

This’ll all just come back ‘round again
But for me this will be the end
Doesn’t mean I’ll give into the blues
‘Cause a man still has his work to do

Shine on all the dimmest views
Light up all the darkest rooms
Sing out all the sweetest tunes
‘Cause a man still has his work to do

I don’t have to wait until I go
To find peace in this world, I know
And even if I got nothing to lose
A man still has his work to do

Shine on all the dimmest views
Light up all the darkest rooms
Sing out all the sweetest tunes
‘Cause a man still has his work to do

"Only Way into Your Heart"

I’ll bring you home and let you in
There was a time I knew how this would end
You’re feelin’ down, man I’ve been low
There were days I couldn’t help but show

If this is hell, if this is heaven
There’s still gotta be a start
Where you let me love you
The only way into your heart

I hold you close, don’t back away
I can see it all over your face
You’re runnin’ scared, you’re runnin’ blind
Don’t let the Fear come take over your mind
Just let it go and take it easy
I’m here waitin’ for the start
Where you let me love you
The only way into your heart

My love is stronger than you think
Ain’t no need to doubt

"Asking to Stay"

When I call you in the morning
And I say I’m such a waste
All I know is when I’m tumblin’ down
It’s you I’m asking to stay

You sacrifice so that I can
Sing songs far away
You never seem to mind somehow
And it’s you I’m asking to stay

All the time that passed me by
All the years that left me all alone
I know now you’ve come and night has gone

Didn’t have a lot to offer
Grown in Mississippi clay
But you taught me to love and now
It’s you I’m asking to stay

Never said that it was perfect
Working at it day by day
But I love you and your Midwest sounds
Yeah it’s you I’m asking to stay

All the time that passed me by
All the years that left me all alone
I know now you’ve come and night has gone

We may never climb out of here
May not find a better way
But if all we walk is faltering ground
It’s still you I’m asking to stay

All the time that passed me by
All the years that left me all alone
I know now you’ve come and night has gone

"Come Higher"

Couldn’t take it anymore
I’m easy to tire
Said I’d quit but I never did
Guess I’m a liar

Work all day to play all night
Singin’ “Bird on the Wire”
Making money to make the Man
I think something misfired

But you, you settled for the world
You settled down to find out what it means
And I can tell you what I’ve found
Going town to town it’s all been seen
The only road I’ve found I paved for me

Carving out my given name
And set it on fire
Like a match struck, turned to flame
I’m flickering skyward

But you, you settled for the world
You settled down to find out what it means
And I can tell you what I’ve found
Going town to town it’s all been seen
The only road I’ve found I paved for me

Letting go of all the shame
Start to feel lighter
Through the ash see what remains
When I come higher

"Love is All"

Time and time again I start to wonder
How it is I ever made it out
When all of this is Conquer, Take, and Plunder
Then again I’ve always had my doubts

Crawlin’ back and fleeing from the thunder
I was just a vision of myself
Saw the cracks that started showing under
Didn’t tell so no one knew to help

Oh it took some time to finally be
In a place I know I’ll never leave
And after wrestling my mind free
I’m in love and Love is all in me

I went to the place where you did fade out
You would never say my name no more
Then I left to chase dreams and sing about
Where I saw your ghost upon the floor

Oh it took some time to finally be
In a place I know I’ll never leave
And after wrestling my mind free
I’m in love and Love is all in me

"Silence"

Winds have come, seasons changed
I’ve been gone four weeks
The house is different, you’ve rearranged
You even got new sheets

It might take some time
To get it back the way it’s been
I just need to find a way to live again
It takes a little silence

I went on out to the edge
I couldn’t find no shade
Never thought there was the choice
To crawl on back or stay

Tried to build a wall
For the world to crash against
I still need to find a way to just exist
It takes a little silence

I ain’t afraid of the pain
I’m not covering up
Please don’t take away
What it’s teaching us

Feeling loss, feel it all
My mind is running thin
My heart it breaks, I ruminate
The sky is darkening

Used to wish I knew
Exactly what to say
There are no words that can make it all okay
It takes a little silence

"Where Your Heart Goes"

Staring at the ceiling
Letting my breath slow
I’m a timebomb and I’m feeling
Like I’m about to blow

Carrying the baggage
Of my God-given name
I keep adding to the traffic
That just congests my brain

Honey it’s hard to know
Where your heart goes
Gotta just find a hold
And let the mystery go

Put all my faith in living
Life with endless days
And that let me fall for magic
I didn’t need the pay

I am still in love, yes
And that will never change
But I need to give someone else
The chance to make the rain

Honey it’s hard to know
Where your heart goes
Gotta just find a hold
And let the mystery go

Maybe it’s a new start
You know it’s not the end
But I’m worried, and I don’t know if
I can find myself again

Honey it’s hard to know
Where your heart goes
Gotta just find a hold
And let the mystery go

"Help Me Out"

Like this autumn phase
Warmer days are gone
You’re an empty page
No one’s written on

Wind comes, is it change?
Can I feel it blow
Outside of your place
Rapping the windows

Can you help me out

Late nights at the bar
Waiting to go on
Wish I could just stop
But no one’s going home

Can you help me out
Am I that surprised
Nothing’s gonna change
But you looked awful nice
On your wedding day

"How Could I Be Wrong"

Rivers follow me all the way home
How could I be wrong
She slept at night beside her phone
How could I be wrong

The weight and the worry can be so strong
How could I be wrong
But I can’t give back what I don’t own
How could I be wrong

When there’s nothing in the world for us
Our two hearts will break away for love

Someday I’ll find myself again
How could I be wrong
But I’ll regret where it is I’ve been
How could I be wrong

How could I be wrong
Nothing shaped me all along
Like falling down to see
Where I am and where I will be

So another night, another song
How could I be wrong
I may be away, but I’m never gone
How could I be wrong

When there’s nothing in the world for us
Our two hearts will break away for love
