Believe It 02:25
Come on, show me whatcha got, got Slip inside, get on in from the outside Come on, show me whatcha got, got Slip on in to the inside You don't wanna see it You'll never believe it I can't blame your hesitations I can't blame your decisions Make up your mind Like today there's no other way to play You don't wanna see it You'll never believe it Come on, show me whatcha got, got I don't care, it's time to make your move Come on, show me whatcha got, got Oh, whatcha got, got Like today there's no other way to play You don't wanna see it You'll never believe it

Poor Boy 03:08
And here we said that you could never play With the words that meant so much to you So many times you tried to get your way As we left you building your hate The child that you hold so dear inside Never truely liked us anyway And here we always played without oh you ‘Till the sun decides to go away Sulking from the words, so cold And here you wanted a breath of fresh air That I couldn’t give to you Like so many times before Proven through and through How could we be so hard, oh on the boy Such a nasty way to live in hate How could we be so mean, oh to the boy He offered us so much we wouldn’t take He offered us so much it’s our mistake Why do I wonder where you’ve been When I’ve got so many troubles of my own Would you care to listen Where do you get off spelling it out Talking about right here let’s figure it out Right now, let’s figure it out And here you wanted a breath of fresh air That I couldn’t give to you Like so many times before Proven through and through

My 03:39
Sleep some tonight, don't you worry Life's not anything your meant to not realize I'll get the lights, you close your eyes Soon it'll be time to awake, to live your dreams Twice I see and yes twice I do Twice you've looked and I still haven't pulled through So many ways, so many days So many times before I get it my, myself My, myself In life we just might build a future Together our hopes and dreams we fantasize It's a reality we can calculate Together we're destined to live our dreams These dreams, your dreams Why can't I seem to lift this haze It's blocken the world from your view Like a spell that's cast on you Here's a melody ta break your blues Sleep more tonight, don't you wake there's no reason ta twist and turn I'm right here sitting by your side Watching all over you all by my, myself All by myself, all by myself

Sliver 03:08
With another day, I’ll arrive Maybe we’ll dance, tonight Tease a little, one to the other When will we ever realize Now we’re trapped in the light So many times, I find I’m hanging on To what I can’t explain Could it possibly be your hand A touch held so dear, so near Would you like to play around this world with me Would you like to play around this world with me Would you like to take my hand and play around this world with me Would you like to understand and play around my world with Oh with me Oh with, me
5.
Find Away 03:38
I find myself looking, staring down, stumblin’ around I find myself just tryin ta, ta find a way to you Please don’t misunderstand, when I can’t speak to you In this life I call mine, just tryin ta, ta find away

Johnny 04:15
Once I saw a face in the dark, he turned and looked at me So broken, so serene, you know, might as well be me So alone in his own world, counting the paces between The first shot, as he fell between the seamless seams, but Johnny boy Wasn’t quite like the rest Just a little complicated So Johnny he left for town, on his own two feet he went Passing the miles by, in hopes of a new life he found Nothing but more of the same, it’s not what you would think To be true in a world like this, in a world like this, then Johnny, he cried, he claimed There’s got to be another day for this and for me So I’ll give you my hand in hopes that you’ll understand That he’s just a regular ordinary man Living in his empty yet hopeful life, he’s lead only to believe Ta fall silently asleep, but Johnny Boy Wasn’t quite like the rest Just a little too devoted So here it all ends, he’s simply a boy He’s clinging to his best defense for, for awhile Johnny, who is it you are hiding from

Seven 03:03
Why do you say, that the world isn’t ever really, really what you thought it was Why do I try, ta change your mind cause your so lost in it all Why do I see everything but a mind with many capabilities Why do you deny, your place in this space here you wanna cry. Could you ever be my friend, all the possibilities Do ya hear, my words, ringing clear now Then I tought that you would never care Would you, could you Then I saw that you were never there So blind, so fried Then I saw that time was on my side Night and day, your lying anyway Would ya like to know, a little something about ta grow About ta go About ta go About ta go About ta go About ta What do you mean, when you glare at me with those staring deep, glary eyes Only another way to show, that inside outside can’t you ever really grow Did you ever think, I wouldn’t notice
8.
It All 05:12
Before I set off to go can I leave you with just one, just one kiss It's to show you my other side Thoughts for the way you look at me with With those clear blue eyes, mid summer’s sky It won't be long till the winter's cold rain and snow has come and gone Ah yes, it's come and gone But looking up, up ahead I can't clearly see Could it be the trouble that I've been waiting ta meet A distant image I’ve been seeing in my troubled sleep Why won't you now oh step up before me now And tell me what it is that your so frightened to repeat Oh could this, yes could this, oh could this be the last time we meet Why do we hide what it is that we should really say We've built this silence here for, for so many days For so many days, here we go Why can't I, say what it is that you mean to me Why can’t I, tell the world what ya mean to me, I I wanted it all, all from you I wanted it all, all from you, from Why can't I, I say what it is that you mean to me Why can’t I, I tell the world what ya mean to me, I I wanted it all, all from you I wanted it all, all from you, I I wanted it all, I wanted it all I wanted it all I wanted it all

Solitude 04:44
Once in a while I get shown so many places I might no, no never know Like the day that I came running with the thoughts of yet another place Inside myself, I can’t run, reaching out holding on, left undone Crazy’s all I hear, relax ya know your time is getting near In my heart I cry Yes I cry Now I see myself in such a way, that I really don’t care don’t Don’t care to say hey, to what it is that drives me to my place Breath in, silence all around Ya know it’s here I’m going It’s here I’m coming down Now I find that sometimes I don’t, don’t really care What it’s all about, so much useless talk Breath in, realize your fascinations Ya know that life’s too short, don’t let it pass by Now I see myself in such a way that I really don’t care don’t Don’t care to say hey, to what it is that drives me to my place Breath in, silence all around Ya know it’s here I’m going It’s here I’m coming down In my heart I cry Yes I cry, tears and tears In my heart I In my heart I cry

Could We 02:29
When the world was better than it could ever be When the world was brighter through your seams When the world was a place of mystery, could we In the face of another tribulation, I fight through In the face of another situation, I play the fool, just for you Just for you. As another truth falls far from your desire As another drop painstakingly fills As another hit takes us, we’re drawn apart And it’s here we continue, continue to realize Find another place in your heart to dwell Our shall I say, defend Just once before, before we come to an end Could we possibly sing of a better place maybe, of a better time When the world was better than it could ever be When the world was brighter through your seams When the world was a place of mystery, could we Seemed like, like my last lover said, could we, she said be true As another truth falls far from your desire As another drop painstakingly fills As another hit takes us, we’re drawn apart And it’s here we will follow, forever seeking the end

about

CANNING Chicago, Illinois

We deem to explore our music and portray a song in its rightful place, at least for that given moment. Through the years, it’s been noticed that many times we do not play the song, moreover, with the elasticity of time...the song will play us...
