Carry Us
by higman

How can I pour my heart out any other way/
How can I hear what I really need to pray/
On a day/
like any other day/
like today/

Cause it all bleeds together/
Sending my thoughts to another level/ away from here/
So far, so far away from here/

And yet here we are/
Not to far/
From where we’ve always been/
In my heart/
In my mind/
I feel different than what Ive seen/
So I’ll bring out the best in me/ but swearing in the first degree/
That I don’t think we truly know what to do/
That’s exactly why I’ve come to you/
That exactly why I’ve come to you/

Look at all these people/
Shedding life on a world with light/
Look at all these people/
Blindly coming forth in plain sight/
Just asking for the breeze to carry us home/
We know we’re not alone/ Carry us home/


And yet here we are/
Not to far/
From where we’ve always been/
In my heart/
In my mind/
I feel different than what Ive seen/
So I bring out the best in me/ but swearing in the first degree/
That I don’t think we truly know what to do/
That’s exactly why I’ve come to you/

Why write to tell you how I feel- it doesnt matter anyway-you already know the kiss we sealed- I can’t show it any other way- Since the lights in the sky and the grass that grows- words fall short of the love inside- so thoughts and prayers will have to do- and with the angels my love for you will hide, with the angels my love for you will hide


Show Me

Infinite wisdom
Don’t rain down on me/
Ignorance is bliss/
Just leave my eyes to see/
My mouth is already dry
from the Earth’s dirty core/
Infinite wisdom/
How finite is your bore/
~
Security blanket,
Thanks for the shield/
You’ve protected me in the cold/
But your thickness no longer yields/
Comfort from what comes out from inside and pours from my heart/
The storm of Sorrow for a world tearing itself apart/

~~~

It’s not by my strength but yours/

It’s not by strength but yours/

I will not boast through the noise/

Show me my heart is yours/

Show me my heart is yours/

~~~

I can only bow my head to glory of the prince of peace/
Giving back every tear cried/
From the most deserving to the very least/
May their moisture sooth all prayers unheard/
Binding the faith still felt for your every word/

It Must Be Me

I don’t play these games anymore/

I don’t play these games anymore/

One minute/
All is right in the world/
The time/
Spent in all our lives/
Meant something

Next minute/
And from where I’m not quite sure/
Unkind/
Doesn’t describe the edge of the knife/
Cuts everything

I don’t play these games anymore/

I don’t play these games anymore/

I’m not the same guy that can tolerate the noise/
Where love was meant to grow/
I never was one for all the toys/
When love was enough to show/

One conclusion that I see/ It must have been me/ It must be me

I may not be enough to fight for/
I’m too tired to dive for pearls/
but given the chance we could have shown the world/
Given the chance/

Given the chance/

I don’t play these games anymore/
I don’t play these games anymore/

I don’t play these games anymore/

I don’t play these games anymore/

I don’t play these games anymore/

Why complicate us with more than what we want/ when us is all we need/ one conclusion that I see/ it must be me/ it must be me

I don’t play these games anymore/ i don’t play these games
