Lyrics

Lion Eyes

Verse 1:
She watches from a table at the bar
She’s young and wild and able preying from afar

Her mane is burnt and auburn like the newest breed
Her skin is soft and golden made of greed

Pre-Ch:
She looks right through your heart
That smile sharp in the dark
She wants you to surrender

That pretty appetite
Is fiending through the night
She wants you to surrender

Chorus:
Lion eyes, her lion eyes
She wants you she needs you
She’s got to feed those
Lion eyes

Verse 2:
Her happiness is tortured ecstasy
She wants you to adore her faithfully

Pre-Ch:
She looks right through your heart
That smile sharp in the dark
She wants you to surrender

That pretty appetite
Is fiending through the night
She wants you to surrender

Chorus:
Lion eyes, her lion eyes
She wants you she needs you
She’s got to feed those
Lion eyes

Bridge:
She’ll catch you and deceive you
Make love to you and leave
As she prowls in her disguise

Chorus x2:
Lion eyes, her lion eyes
She wants you she needs you
She’s got to feed those
Lion eyes

I Miss The Music In Austin

Verse 1:
I miss the music in Austin
Patio lights and a lone star band
Simple songs with new friends
I miss the music in Austin

Verse 2:
I got a job that pays the bills
Playing songs for folk eating fancy meals
Traveling around in cheap hotels
I got a job that pays the bills

Verse 3:
And I feel lost when I’m far away
Searching for the sun on a cloudy day
Till I’m under open sky I pray
I feel lost when I’m far away

Ooh

Verse 4:
I’ve seen mountains and ocean blue
Flown twice as high as eagles do
Gone everywhere I needed to
But I miss the music in Austin

Verse 5:
I miss the music in Austin
Patio lights and a lone star band
Simple songs with new friends
I miss the music in Austin

Bring Your Fire To Me

Verse 1:
Wild nights ago I walked alone
Weary eyes and lungs filled with smoke
You came by
Burning bright

Verse 2:
Time and time again you’ve been my flame
Always seemed to find you in my frame
And as we grew
The flame did too

Chorus:
Be my coal and I’ll burn for you madly
Light the troubled dark and warm the way
I’d travel miles just to see you
Bring your fire to me

Ooh…

Verse 2:
The calling of the road took you away
Comfort of a life without a pace
So you roamed
Leaving home

Verse 3:
Keep me with you darling as you go
My love for you the distance doesn’t show
But I beg
And I plea

Chorus:
Be my coal and I’ll burn for you madly
Light the troubled dark and warm the way
I’d travel miles just to see you
Bring your fire to me

Ooh…

Bridge: Ooh

Chorus:
Be my coal and I’ll burn for you madly
Light the troubled dark and warm the way
I’d travel miles just to see you
Bring your fire to me
Bring your fire to me

Ooh…
Ooh…

Jewels

Verse 1:
This night is getting longer
Softly waiting for a sign

Hauntings cold in my cup the
Spirits singing in my mind

Is this a good time maybe
To tell you I need you right now?

Chorus:
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
On the inside

Verse 2:
My thoughts are always running
To break down the walls of their escape

But I am hard as gravel
And I can’t let them get away

Chorus:
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
On the inside

Bridge:
Raw with jade, different ways
In my mind to play it right
Ruby cave
And diamonds (x3)

Chorus x2:
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
I’m an outside of stone
With jewels on the inside
On the inside

I Wanna Be In Love

Verse 1:
I pick up my phone
Ring a guy I know
He’s alright

Pick me up at ten
But I’d rather stay in
Oh well, I go

Shotgun in his car
To his favorite bar
And I don’t care

About his fancy job
Or the view inside his loft

Chorus:
I’m just looking for a friend
Someone to be with at the end
Of the day

I wanna be in love, ooh
In love

Verse 2:
Buys us drinks for two
Says the place is new
I smile and nod

Try to act involved
As I swim in alcohol
But it’s so hard

To find someone who’s sweet
Handsome and offbeat

Chorus:
I’m just looking for a friend
Someone to be with at the end
Of the day

I wanna be in love, ooh
In love

Bridge:
A man who holds me close
Dandelion rose from the ground
I feel him in my bones
Fields of blossoms grow
When I’m found

Chorus:
I’m just looking for a friend
Someone to be with at the end
Of the day

I wanna be in love, ooh
In love

Outro:
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la…

All In Life

Da da…

Verse 1:
My breaths are shorter these days
I think about every word
Years change the way you see
Does worry really have worth?

Chorus:
I just wanna swim
In the biggest ocean
Climb the tallest mountain
Just to show that I’m alive
To show that I tried
That I gave it all in life

Da da…

Verse 2:
My hands are stronger it seems
Worn and dirty as I play
I’m getting closer to my dreams
Slowly molding into clay

Chorus:
I just wanna swim
In the biggest ocean
Climb the tallest mountain
Just to show that I’m alive
To show that I tried
That I gave it all in life

Da da…

Bridge:
It’s coming up roses
On my knees
And I will not falter
I will lead
Breaking the static I am free (repeat in round)

…I’ll be free

Chorus:
I just wanna swim
In the biggest ocean
Climb the tallest mountain
Just to show that I’m alive
To show that I tried
That I gave it all in life

Da da…
