...The Stories We Could Tell Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Gotta Love the Ride
I was born in a Salvation Carnival
I moved on falling in and out of holes
I may lose a battle and fall off my saddle
But it ain’t gonna rattle my cage none
Luck lifts me up
So I can keep on going strong for days
All my life

I’ve been riding on the red
Trying to do a touch better
Gotta find my way in
If it takes forever
Reaching out of reach
Time is in a big hurry
The struggles under my skin
It’s not the taste of things to come
But the journey that you’re on
Oh, you may never get where you think the roads going
But the key to paradise
You gotta love the ride

Blind leads blind
And in the end you justify
Slow, huh, slow down and smell the roses on the vine
You get what you want when you want what you’ve got
Wherever you are, you’re there

It’s so sublime
And beautiful for those who dare
All my life

I’ve been riding on the red
Trying to do a touch better
Gotta find my way in
If it takes forever
Reaching out of reach
Time is in a big hurry
The struggles under my skin
It’s not the taste of things to come
But the journey that you’re on
Oh, you may never get where you think the roads going
But the key to paradise
You gotta love the ride

Yeow! I’ve been riding on the red
Trying to do a touch better
Gotta find my way in
If it takes forever
Reaching out of reach
Time is in a big hurry
The struggles under my skin
It’s not the taste of things to come
But the journey that you’re on
Woh, you may never get
where you think the roads going
The key to paradise
You gotta love the ride

You gotta love the ride
Oh ho ho
2. I Forget to Breathe
My life’s in my pocket
But there’s a hole in my pocket
Fate with a twist
Gone is the magic
It’s kind of tragic
Oh no, but it is what it is
I go through the motions
like a fish in the ocean
thrown around by the tide
I remember the taste
An angel’s kiss on my face
A giant crack in the sky

Still I wonder when my day comes
Another chance to get it right

My world gets blown wide open
My skin is bigger than me
I’m back in the white light baby
The stars are raining and I forget to breathe
It’s a raining and I forget to breathe
It’s amazing and I forget to breathe

There’s a clock on my shoulder
Taking me over
Tying my hands
A chronic condition
But a break in the rhythm uh
It’s like I never left
I go through the motions
like a fish in the ocean
thrown around by the tide
I remember the taste
An angel’s kiss on my face
Higher than the Fourth Of July

Still I wonder when my day comes
Another chance to get it right

My world gets blown wide open
My skin is bigger than me
I’m back in the white light baby
The stars are raining and I forget to breathe
It’s a raining and I forget to breathe
It’s amazing and I forget to breathe
I forget to breathe

Oh, my heart gets torn wide open
And it’s a soul emotion I forget to breathe

I remember, yeah, that kiss on my face
Still I wonder when my day comes
And I’m back in the race
Come on!

My world gets blown wide open
My skin is bigger than me
I’m back in the white light baby
Where the stars are raining and I forget to breathe
It’s a raining and I forget to breathe
It’s amazing I forget to breathe
And I forget to breathe
I forget to breathe
Whoah oh ho
3. Fragile
Chasing one more Dragon
The poison apple glow
The Devil loves a madman
when the monkey’s in control
Bye bye Love ever after
Lost my everything
Try to keep my head above water
And not the bottom of the bottle and sink, yeah

Don’t you cry
Don’t sing me your sad lullabies
It’s a hard rain
but it’s gonna be okay

My heart’s on mend
From needles and sins
I’m shallow breathing in
Crawled out of the hole
I’m back in the show
I finally get the joke
But under my skin
I’m still fragile

When there’s no one left to dance with
And the ghosts tap on my back
I click my heels for Kansas
And pull a rabbit right out of the hat
I get by
Looking through star-spangled eyes
These are hard times
But it’s gonna be okay

My heart’s on mend
From secrets and sins
I’m shallow breathing in
Crawled out of the hole
I’m back in the show
I finally get the joke
But under my skin
I’m still fragile

I’m still afraid if I fall from grace
I’d give myself away
And your faith and your trust in me will be broken (broken)

My heart’s on mend
From needles and sins
I’m shallow breathing in
Crawled out of the hole
I’m back in the show
I finally get the joke
But under my skin

My heart’s on mend
From secrets and sins
I’m shallow breathing in
Crawled out of the hole
I’m back in the show
I get the joke
But under my skin
I’m still fragile
I’m still fragile, fragile
4. Satisfied
Back in the beginning
Adam’s in the mood
But Eve had all the apples
Whoo, and that boy couldn’t buy a clue
It’s a full-time education
No one clearly understands
The Devil must be laughing
At the measure of a man

On the road to a happy ending
There is nothing but twists and turns

If I could swim through the desert
Drive to an island
And fly through the forest
And walk on the air
I wish I had a dime
for every time I tried
And I’d sure keep the girl satisfied
Keep her satisfied

My mind is scarred and blistered
begging black and blue
But there’s a grin on my face
from the thrill of the chase

Just like any dog’ll do
She’s got brains and beauty
And my heart is in her hands
Can’t finesse the misses
Yes, without a song and dance

On the road to a happy ending
Yeh, there is nothing but twists and turns
oh-hoo

If I could swim through the desert
Drive to an island
And fly through the forest
And walk on the air
I wish I had a dime
for every time I tried
And I’d sure keep the girl satisfied

I would stare down the thunder
Carry a mountain
Crawl through the fire
To get closer to you
And I wish I had a dime
for every time I tried
And I’d sure keep the girl satisfied, Yeah

Yeah, On the road to a happy ending
There is nothing but twists and turns, Oh Lord

If I could swim through the desert
Drive to an island
Fly through the forest
And walk on the air
I wish I had a dime
for every time I tried
And I’d sure keep the girl satisfied

So I would stare down the thunder
Carry a mountain
And crawl through the fire
To get closer to you
I wish I had a dime
for every time I tried
And I’d sure keep the girl satisfied,
And I’d sure keep that girl satisfied
sure keep the girl
Satisfied
5. The Man Who Has Everything
We were golden and I took it all for granted
And I made it all convincing for a while
The curse is I miss you and it stalks me like a shadow
Not a single day I don’t replay the last night together

Love will always be something that’s missing
Yeah, you are the only dream I can’t seem to hold on to
I’m the man who has everything
But nothing at all till I have you

What was I thinking?
Driven by some grand illusion
Losing everything I wanted to be free, yeah
My heart is heavy and I brave my way around it
And justify the leaving
but I don’t believe me

Love will always be something that’s missing
Baby, you are the only dream I can’t seem to hold on to
I’m the man who has everything
But nothing at all till I have you
I have you

oh ooh woh

I regret you
I can’t forget you
I turned my back on something beautiful

Baby, Love will always be something that’s missing
Oh-oh, you are my saving grace
and I pray to fall
I’m the man who has everything
But nothing at all
Oh, nothing at all
Till I
Yeah I
Have you
Hoo ooh
6. The Monster in Me
There’s never been a midnight
that I don’t jones for you
There’s gravity in your eyes
A force of human nature
It’s got me howling at the moon

You pull me in
You peel my skin
And find my Frankenstein
You’ve got that shake-and-bake
that takes me to the other side
It don’t take much
Your Midas touch
And you will set me free
You’re getting close to curl my toes
And release the monster in me
Hey hey, yeah

I’m bitten by Delilah
So beautiful it hurts
Oh, It changes what’s inside ya
A little taste of crazy
A craving and a curse

You jack my eyes
Jekyll my Hyde
And torch my oxygen
You cut my ball and chain
It’s all insane
The fun begins
It don’t take much
Your Midas touch
And you will set me free
You’re getting close to curl my toes
And release the monster in me
Yeah,

yeah yeah

You pull me in
You peel my skin
And find my Frankenstein
You’ve got that shake-and-bake
that takes me to the other side
It don’t take much
Your Midas touch
And you will set me free
You’re getting close to curl my toes
And release the monster
in me
Hmm
oh no
7. What if We Were New?
I recognize the signs
Your baby-blues are vacant
We get along like there is nothing wrong
We’ve got some baggage that we got from the beginning
I know you know there’s ground that we don’t walk on

Shutting my mouth
Oh oh
Doing without
Suddenly someone gets a little colder

Well, what if we met tomorrow?
Right out of the wild blue
We’ll get high (high) in another life
Baby, what if we were new?

It’s like we stumbled being comfortable in Limbo
I miss the slippery twist of mystery, yes
What ever happened to the girl behind the woman?
I know you know the kind of man I used to be

Living out loud
Turn it around
And suddenly someone
Gets a little closer

What if we met tomorrow?
Right out of the wild blue
We’ll get high in another life
Baby, what if we were new?

What if we cut up those picture-perfect faces?
Make another me another you
We’ll get high (high) in another life
Baby, what if we were new?
Ah yeah

Turn the record over
I’m sick of the same song
I’m playing it too long
Gotta be something better

Well, what if we met tomorrow?
Right out of the wild blue
We’ll get high (high) in another life
Baby, what if we were new?

Gotta be somethin’ better
Another me
Another you
We’ll get high (high) in another life
Baby, what if we were new?
Ahh-ooh
Oh now, what if we would still be something new?
8. East/West
Here’s looking at me
Here’s looking at you
woh-oh
Here’s to everything that we’ve been through
woh-oh
Woh-hoo woh-woh-oh-hoo

East is the West is the place we meet alone
I am and You are the everlasting road
Now the time has come and I want you to know

Here’s looking at me
Here’s looking at you
woh-oh
Here’s to everything
that we’ve been through
woh-oh

The years they move so fast
Goodbye
Today is in the past
We run through the pages
They never seem to last
Oh-ho,
Now the time has come
And I want you to know
Hoh-oh
Here’s looking at you
oh- oh- ooh- oh

The good and bad
They make the chain
And in my life
I can’t explain
Through it all
No one’s to blame
And I want you to know

Here’s looking at me
Here’s looking at you
woh-oh
Here’s to everything
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
that we’ve been through
Hoh-hoh

Here’s looking at me
Here’s looking at you
woh-oh
Here’s to everything
Oh-oh-oh
that we’ve been through
woh-oh
Oh- woh- oh- woh
Oh- ooh- woh- oh
Oh- ooh- woh- hoo
Oh- oh- oh- oh- oh
9. The Light of Day
Had a good iii-dea, baby
Leavin' town, look for somethin' new
When I find myself believe all the lyin'
Need get out, to find what's true
Closed my eyes and put my finger down
Land anywhere, on the map
I won't stop, or think much about it
It's my decision, and that is that
Got a good idea now baby
No turning back

Rollin & tumbling I drove all night
Everywhere I look, is just... outta sight
Now lady madonna can pray
But will I ever see the light of day

First I turned up in oklahoma
Not sure, what brought me here
Took a wrong turn in albuquerque
Bus driver man he can't steer
Don't matter, where I'm going
Long as I can leave my bags behind
Only bring, what's in my heart now
Find a good place to free my mind
There ain't no way now, no never baby
No turnin' back

Rollin & tumbling I drove all night
Everywhere I look, is just... outta sight
Now lady madonna can pray
But will I ever see the light of day
The moon climbs up and the sun crawls down
One last stand in a one horse town
Now lady madonna can pray

But will I ever see the light of day
You might think, that I'm too lazy
Livin' life the way I do
But I'll know the place, when I find it
Just come along, I'll show you too
Got a good idea now baby
No turnin' back

Rollin & tumbling I drove all night
Everywhere I look, is just... outta sight
Now lady madonna can pray
But will I ever see the light of day
When the moon climbs up and the sun crawls down
Say goodbye to this one horse town
Now lady madonna can pray
But will I ever see the light of day
10. Just Let Your Heart Decide
Another sleepless evening
and you’re staring at the wall
Your head is turning circles all the time
And he’s lying next to you
And it’s got you so confused

Cause I’m the first thing that you think of
when you’ve opened up your eyes
And all you ever dream about at night

And the promises you made
All the meanings start to fade
There’s no use looking back

We both know it’s a winding road
And you’re wondering which way to go
Please don’t tell me lies
And don’t make up your mind
Baby, just let your heart decide

You’ve built yourself a castle
But it’s only make-believe
And I know that you’re just longing to be free
Living in a battlefield
Cause you know our love is real
And there’s no turning back

We both know it’s a winding road
And you’re wondering which way to go
Please don’t tell me lies
And don’t make up your mind
Baby, just let your heart decide

I’m the one you need
Every breath you breathe
You know that we belong together
This was meant to be
Just run away with me
If you just let your heart
Just let your heart decide

There’s no use looking back

We both know it’s a winding road
And you’re wondering which way to go
Please don’t tell me lies
And don’t make up your mind
Baby, just let your heart

We both know it’s a winding road
And you’re wondering which way to go
Please don’t tell me lies
And don’t make up your mind
Baby, just let your heart decide
Oh
Ho-oh
11. It's Always About That Girl
She’s the last unbreakable habit
Like a constant whisper in my ear
Woo, I see her smile on every stranger
And her diamond eyes staring in the headlights glare
I’m at the end of a bloodshot highway
Where did we go so wrong?
Is it too late to change a thing about it, baby?
Too late to turn around

Every song playing on the radio
The melody is telling me something I should know
Oh-ho, every word yeah seems to bare my soul
Chased by a memory
Driving off the edge of the world

It’s always about that girl

She was a tongue-drop heart-stopping beauty
Her revelation is a thorn in my side
What makes a man look over his shoulder?
Now I’ve got nothing but a picture in my mind
Time has a way of stabbing forward
Where did we go so wrong?
Is it too late to change a thing about it, baby?
Cause life, after love, ain’t fair Woh-oh

Every song playing on the radio
The melody is telling me something I should know
Oh-ho oh, every word seems to bare my soul
Chased by a memory
Driving off the edge of the world

I can’t escape
It’s in my face
It’s always about that girl

Listen, baby,
Ooh- who- Oh- oh- oh

Hmmm

Every song playing on the radio (radio)
The melody is telling me something I should know
Yeh hey, yeah, every word seems to bare my soul
Chased by a memory
Driving off the edge of the world
(Driving off the edge of the world)
Oh- ho- oh
It’s always about that girl,
yeah
12. Cinderella Smile
Pretty people, flavor of the week
Bleed for the camera, beauty is a beast
They say jump, you say how high
Sifn em up wind em up
And watch em all imortalized
Turn on the runway lights
Blow up your big doll hair
Break out the pearly whites

Welcome to eternity
Baby's gonna be a big star
Golden opportunity
Sugar sweet and touch of bizarre
And all the word will see
Another wanna be gone wild
A cinderella smile

Famous friends everybody knows
Ban mona lisa smelling like a rose
Deadly curves showing more skin
Can't be too rich, can't be too thin
Turn on the runway lights
Blow up your big doll hair
Wave old milwaukee goodbye

Welcome to eternity
Baby's gonna be a big star
Golden opportunity
Sugar sweet and touch of bizarre
And all the word will see
Another wanna be gone wild
A cinderella smile
13. The Stories We Could Tell
Oh yeah
Ahh-ow!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

You know my name and not my story
The things we’ve done and not what we’ve been through
The road is home a run for glory
A sweeter song but a taste of the Blues

Look inside another world everybody
And listen to the stories we could tell
Raise a glass to freedom
Yeah, and raise a little Hell
You tell me your lies
And I’ll tell you mine
And the stories we could tell
Uh

The rumors fly
Some mindless chatter
We brave the fires always make it out alive
Tears drowned out by laughter
Miles and years
It’s the heart that really matters

Look inside another world everybody
And listen to the stories we could tell
The things that you believe in just might be a fairy tale
You tell me your lies
nd I’ll tell you mine
Oh, the stories we could tell

You know you live your life
Through someone else’s eyes
But try to walk in my shoes
Before you make up your mind
Oh- oh- oh- oh-
Ooh- woh- oh- oh- woh

Look inside another world everybody mmm,
and the stories we could tell
Raise a glass to freedom
Oh yeah
Look inside another world everybody yeh-heh
And listen to the stories we could tell
The things that you believe in just might be a fairy tale
You tell me your lies
And I’ll tell you mine
The stories we could tell

Ugh
Yes we will
Alright baby
You sure remember
Oh- oh- oh- ooh- woh
Ooh- woh- oh- oh
Oh- oh- oh- oh
