Geoff Tate Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Flood (5:24)
Ask me what I believe in
I'd say compromise.
Once you know you can't deny.
If we open the flood gates...
we let it all in.
Don't lose your head...

Swim to the middle or
to the other side.
It makes no difference
I'd follow you close as a shadow.
I'd kiss your words...
but here in the sand
we've drawn the line.

Can you feel this
flood of life?
Can you feel this?
Let it all in. Yeah.

This heart of mine,
open up this flood of life.
This flood of life.
Here comes the flood.

There's some hope of love
left in those rainbow eyes.
On your way up
to touch higher ground,
you said you'd never change
this revolution heart.

Say what you will
you fly with me and
I couldn't love another.
Now ask me what I believe...
I'm lost in your chaos...
Here comes the flood
Let it all in.

Can you feel it?
Flood of life.
Feel it coming? Overflowing? Yeah.

It's this love of life.
Open up this flood of life.
If you'll open up you'll see
just what love could be.

Where you're standing now,
just feel the love.
Flood of life.
It's taking over, let it all in. Yeah.

This heart of mine, it feels the love.
Flood of life,
and it all feels right.
It feels so right.

Yeah, can you feel the flood now?
Open up and let it in.
Just open up and let it in.
This heart of mine feels the love,
feels the flood of life.
Feels right. It feels so right.

Where you're standing now,
just feel the love.
Flood of life.
It's something you can't divide,
and once you know then you'll decide.
This heart of mine feels the love,
feels the flood of life.
And it all feels right.
It feels so right
2. Forever (4:14)
"Jump in." She says.
"High tide." Yeah she promises.
"Dive under." She says.
Raging water. She gives to me.

So still and silent.
Holding breath, close my eyes
and take her hand.
Feel my body surrender,
who wants to live forever?
My feet can't touch the ground.

Should I swim for the shore?
Should I sink into the black?
Should I breathe now?
Would you?

"Jump in." She said.
"Dive deeper you can rest all day tomorrow."
"Hold on longer." She begs.
"It's getting stronger." Remember?

Should I swim for the shore?
Should I sink into the black?
Should I breathe now?
Should I breathe my last breath?

Should I swim for the shore?
Should I sink into the black?
Should I breathe now?
Should I breathe my last breath now?
Who wants to live forever?

Pull me down.
Who wants to live forever?
Pull me under.
Who wants to live forever?

Pull me down.
Who wants to live forever?
Pull me under.
Who wants to live forever?
3. Helpless (4:50)
Ask yourself... do you believe.
Ask yourself... why?
I feel your need of helplessness
so much I can't help myself.
Why do you need me to... save you?

I can't let you go...
can't let you go.
Save you...
I can't let you go.
I can't let you...

I surrender.
Do you feel the same?
I watch your mouth
for a sign.
We blur the distance
between the line.
I don't care if it's wrong...
all I know... is I need you.

Ask yourself why you feel
like you need me to...
save you from yourself.
And if you cared and
if you shared
everything you feel,
you'd find me... waiting.

Oh, and I'd be waiting

I can't let you go.
I can't let you go.
I can't let you go. No.
I can't let you go.

I can't let you go.
I can't let you go.
I can't let you go. No.
No!
4. Touch (4:07)
There is a simple purpose to my life.
And there is a meaning that will complete me
in time.
There is a mountain of opinion,
telling me that my time could be better spent.
There are complicated circumstances.
They say you belong to a better man.

Baby you're mine.
Yeah you're mine, you just don't know it yet.

Now when I'm right beside you do you ever see...
Do you see me?
And when I'm so deep inside you
will you know,
ever know me?

And when I move in you?
And I do all of those things that you want me to?
You're my world, I'm your satellite,
always free floating outside of your gravity.

When my fingertips touch your skin,
you will know.
When I whisper your secret sins
you will know.
When my fingertips touch your skin,
you will know.
When I whisper when I whisper your...
I whisper your name.

When my fingertips touch your skin,
you will know.
When I whisper your secret sins...

Baby you're mine. All mine.
5. Every Move We Make (4:24)
This is not your breakdown,
woman raise your head.
This is not your madness
everybody feels this.
Woman raise your head.

With every feeling in your soul
and every loss of your control,
you can't sleep at night
'cause sleeping sometimes drives the pain away.

And no matter where we stand,
our beginning has no end.
'Cause everyday we live
we make it just a little better.

This is not our game.
We play it just the same.
With every move we make
we make it better.
Everything's the same
nothing slips away.
With every move we make
we make it better.

Everything that you can give
is the very thing that I would take from you.
I'd take from you.
With every reason why you live
is every reason I would die for you.
I'd die for you.

This is not a game.
We play it just the same.
With every move we make
we make it better.

Everything's the same
nothing slips away.
With every move we make
we make it just a little better.
6. This Moment (4:50)
Her heart is like a fortress.
She clings to her silence like a lover.
She wishes you were cold and heartless
so she wouldn't...
wouldn't have to... feel.
Oh and when she lifts her head,
and your eyes meet,
she walks to your effortless,
with suffocating grace.
And you're caught up in the moment
and someone speaks,
and whisks it all away.

But this moment never ends,
it goes on and on inside my head.
And this moment never ends.
This moment never ends.

I've loved her forever, and in my dreams,
when the evening meets morning,
we're riding bareback moonbeams.
She belongs to different spaces.
She belongs to different times.

And this moment never ends,
it goes on and on inside my head.
And this moment never ends,
this moment never ends.

At these moments it was clear,
it's taken all my life... to get here.
Se waits for me at
the door way while I draw her pictures
of my perfect world ...

And this moment never ends
It goes on and on inside my head.
And this moment never ends,
this moment never ends.
7. In Other Words (4:52)
We see... what we want to see,
but only a drop of what could be.
Stop me if I'm going on...
I dream in stale complacency.
And in other words ...
tell me you're all right.
Just a whisper and I dreamed you cry,
but I survived, courageous here ...
and in other words ...on other worlds.

And when my hands begin to bleed
will you stay and comfort me?
I feel afraid I might be living. Yeah.

And if I had to the ends of Time
would I ever make you mine?
Just a whispered "yes" is all I need.

Tasting you still on my tongue,
shaking conch shells one by one,
and trails of peaceful inequities.
Insincere flattering by other ones
in other words ...

And when these wounds upon my brow,
begin to seep the truth we found,
do you feel we need to keep giving?
And if I promised the world for you,
I could make it all come true.
With a whispered "yes" it's all I need.

I don't know about tomorrow.
I just know, I'll remember today...
and the way... you looked at me.

If my hands begin to bleed
will you stay and comfort me?
You looked at me.
You looked at me.
8. A Passenger (4:49)
I'm looking back
at what just happened,
a little bit lost, apprehended.
I've made mistakes.
Could I say it any clearer?
I've not been sleeping,
it feels like a week.
Our conversations in my head
and my body aches.
I'm not sure what's real anymore.
I'm not sure anymore...

and I feel like a passenger on a train.
Just watching the world fly by...
only a passenger.

A little entangled and short of breath,
when you look at me that way,
you're so hard to resist.
I wish I could say what I feel like you...
yeah, it's easy for you.

What we're going through right now,
we need time to understand.
There's needs that are different
between a woman and a man.
But I know I love you
as clear as this window
I'm looking though.

And I'm just a passenger on this train.
Always watching the world fly by,
trying my best to explain.
Please forgive me if this seems
like some "phase" I'm in.
I'm busy watching where I've been.
Just like a passenger...

I search your eyes but you're not there.
I reach for your hand try to pull you near ...me
but you move... away.

I feel like a passenger on a train.
Always had so much time,
never had to explain.
There was my life
gone in the blink of an eye.
And I feel like a passenger.
A passenger.

And I feel like a passenger
on this train.
And I feel like a passenger.
A passenger.
9. Off the TV (4:00)
Is this the way out for you?
I think we have a needle eye we can pull you through.
All this static breeds mediocrity. Yeah.
It feels like maybe we're just starting to see.

Take your eyes off the TV
Take your eyes off the TV - Yeah
Take your eyes off the TV

Giving into tendencies for noise.
I realize this shakes the system
taking away their toys
I'm desensitized from holding on so tight
to this tired cliché
can't sympathize.

Just take your eyes off the TV
Just take your eyes off the TV - Yeah
Take your eyes off the TV - Yeah

So... now what's it gonna be?
There's someone in an office
who decides what we see.
All things considered
by the time that you could read about it
Yeah, someone's put a spin around it.

Though you try your best in letting go.
They smile the words, keep you in the flow.
And drooling wide-eyed on the floor as you beg,
this dog, someday, will have your leg.

Something's coming...
that Face in the crowd
The sky is falling can you taste the clouds?
Patience is for those with nothing else.

I'll look behind my eyes for You,
travel outside perception too.
To places without names that don't yet exist.
We'll write down all new words
describing what they missed.

Yeah, just take your eyes off the TV
Yeah, take your eyes off the TV
Just take your eyes off the TV
Just take your eyes off the TV

Take take take

Despite the words that keep you in the flow
Despite the words that keep you in the flow
Despite the words that keep you in the flow
Despite the words... of the TV

Despite the words...
10. Grain of Faith (3:35)
With a grain of faith,
they say you can move a mountain.
And from the crater made,
your dreams will flood like from a fountain.

This is my life,
what I raise my hand for.
This is what I...
what I stand for.

What gets you through the day?
What is your savior?
Faith soul faith,
there is no failure.

This is what I...
what I raise my hand for.
This is what I...
what I stand for.

With a grain of faith.
With a grain of faith.
With a grain of faith.
With faith...
you can move a mountain.

This is life...
what I raise my hand for.
This is life...
what I raise my hand...
This is life...
what I raise my hand...
What I...
What I stand for.
11. Over Me (4:41)
I should have had you,
I should have had you over last night.
We could have talked about the things
that mattered to you.
I should have seen this.
I should have seen the color of your eyes
but I was somewhere else
or I was looking through you.

Are you feeling helpless?
Are you feeling selfish?
Or are you feeling anything at all?
Are you seeing something?
Am I close to nothing?
Will I ever be the one you want to call?

Now I'm going down.
I'm drowning, I'm drowning.

Now you're over me.
And there's nothing I can say to bring you down.
Now you're over me,
now you're over my head.
And you're never coming back to me are you?

I should have had you,
I should have had you over last night.
We could have talked about the things
that mattered to you.
I should have seen this.
I should have seen this coming...
this coming.

Now I'm going down.
I'm drowning, I'm drowning.

Now you're over me.
And there's nothing I can say to bring you down again.
Now you're over me.
You're somewhere over my over my head.
Over my head.
Now you're over me.
Now you're over my head.
And you're never coming back to me are you?

Now you're over...
Now you're over...
Now you're over me.
