Hell to Pay Lyrics

Submitted by level 이준기       Last modified by level Eagles
1. The Last Goodbye (4:37)
I walk these streets they built with progress
I search for truth but found no well
And when the sun arises diamonds in the dawn
I look to you but found no one

Back to distant stars where I know you are
I wanna be back home again
To that sacred sun where the sky is warm
I'll be in your arms again

I'll save the last goodbye for you

Under the neon lights in darkness
I found a way to bring you home
I read the words I cannot see why they all follow
It's all just poison for their minds

An as I slip into the madness
The angel spirit cries for me

To that sacred sun where the sky is warm
I'll be in your arms again

I'll save the last goodbye for you
2. Don't Bring Me Down (3:24)
I played the fool it seems a thousand times before
When I got older thought I've learned my lesson well
Then you came into my life and brought me down
Another lesson towards my fate

I feel like I've been standin' on the sun
Your fire burned my soul like no ones ever done

You can say what you want but don't bring me down
If you want me to play in your garden
Then don't bring me down
Baby if you want my love
Then don't bring me down

Your hyperstatic conversation till the dawn
It makes me tired but I see it turns you on
A tense relationship was all you've ever known
I tried to play but now it cuts me to the bone

I look into your eyes a thousand years away
For my compassion all I got was tears
I feel like I've been standing on the sun
Your fire burned my soul like no one's ever done
3. Escape (4:37)
Turn the lights down low there's nobody home
I've been watchin' for hours the clock on the wall
Seems the hands are frozen they don't move at all
Then the silence breaks as you walk through the door
On an on an on somewhere I don't belong
I'm all out of reasons to stay so I won't
On an on an on it won't leave me alone
Wish that you could remember the time when I said

I can't wait any longer to love you
Turns my reflection away from the day
I can't stand when you're so indecisive
Make up your mind so I can escape

When I hold you close there's nobody home
I can hear every heartbeat whisper and woe
Turn me on with your eyes as I smile right on cue
You rehearse everything that you say an you do
On an on an on you and I don't belong
There's no reason to stay anymore so I won't
On an on an on something's terribly wrong
Wish that you could remember the time that we said

I waited so long I'm going to the other side
I'm losing my mind over you
I've been watchin' for hours the clock on the wall
Seems the hands are frozen they don't move at all
4. Haunted (3:39)
Said you were Sophia
Should have known you by another name
I tried to be a believer babe
But I sank down in your shame
Livin' on the east side I was in the west
I tried to bring my love to you
But you trashed me like the rest

I've been haunted by your love
You gave me heartbreak

Tried to be your lover tried to be your friend
Tried to take your pain away
Would have loved you to the end
But their ain't no use in cryin'
I will get along
Hope you find your happiness
In your misery and woe

And I hope you're cryin' all alone
You left me haunted by your love
Haunted

And when you wake you find you're still alone
Drownin' in your tears
Will you see what you have done
When the love I had for you is gone
5. Prozac Nation (4:32)
Safer today to go outside to your window
Go down the stairs
You remember the way
New combination you found in a letter
Ready to fly and escape
You're on the meds and bad tranquilizers
Keeping you down is it your fun
Taking a walk in the park with the children
All that you want is a smile

Everybody's getting high today
Go on and alther your mind
Fade away...

All that you want is some peace in the sunshine
Far from the freaks who are on
Staring at TV alone with no sunsets
Time for your oranges and blues
You're off the meds and the bad tranquilizers
Keeping you down is it your kind of fun
Taking a walk in the park with the children
All that you want is a smile

Everybody's getting high today
Go on and alter your mind
Fade away...

Let it go let it go
There's no reason to stay
Let it go let it go
Before they take you away

So when they lock you again
In a white room
Antiseptic your fate
You don't belong in a place
Where they talk to themselves
It's just hell

All you want is a smile
6. Care for You (4:11)
As I walked along the beach last night
Tried to find myself and get it right
If you saw the changes in my eyes
Riding on the wind you know it cries
When you need some one
It's hard to let them go
When you know that their the one
When you feel your hope is gone
Know that I still care for you
Even though your gone
I taste your tears
You think it would have passed
After all these years
Though you find away
Every night I think of you
I hope your sleeping well
When you need some one
When your hearts alone
When you feel your hope is gone
Know that I still care for you
When I feel you close to me
Even though it's just a dream
Please forgive that I still care
When your loneliness is there
I still think of you
Care for you
Waiting for
After all this time has gone
I still feel you in my arms
And when you need some one
Know that I still care for you
As I walked along the beach last night
Tried to find my self and get it right
If you saw the changes in my eyes
Would you come back
7. Better Off Before (3:00)
But can I find my way to you?
We've got this everywhere
It's hard to see it through
Time wither like my fingers
I've given everything and more

I can't go on with it in mind
But now we're wrong and out of time
Into your mind
Yes, you'll find
That we were better off before

The sands of time have closed the door
We were better off before
No chance to find a way down
Yes, we were better off before

Time crushing all my soul
A faded picture left of me
Upon the wall
Pain now my only friend
When shadows fall I will remember

The sands of time have closed the door
And left us broken evermore
No chance to find a way down
Yes, we were better off before

[Guitar Solo]

I can't go on with it in mind
But now we're wrong and out of time
Into your mind
Yes, you'll find
That we were better off before

The sands of time have closed the door
We were better off before
No chance to find a way down
Yes, we were better off before

The sands of time have closed the door
And left us broken evermore
No chance to find a way down
Yes, we were better off before
8. Still I'm Sad (4:37)
You were the one on the trigger
Deciding the fate of us all
Testing my fate in religion
Trying to make sense of it all
All hope was lost, I found reason
To look in your eyes and find something

The promise you gave was that you'd remain,
Not leave me here and go missing
I've been the one in the shadows
Watching your life through a window
When you open your eyes and feel me inside you
why would you leave me for others

Wait for me, I'll come for you
Wait for me, can't you see I'm still sad
I'm still I'm sad
All hope was lost, I found reason
To look in your eyes and find something
It's was like two days apart
From the truth
Was my soul the piece you been missing

You've got the gun pull the trigger
Strait to the heart of the matter
If it's all been in vain why do I remain
Watching you leave me for others

Wait for me, I'll come for you
Wait for me, this day is not through
Wait for me, it's about time were through
Wait for me, can't you see I'm still sad
Still I'm sad

Wait for me, I'll come for you
Wait for me, this day is not through
Wait for me, it's about time we through
Wait for me, can't you see I'm still sad
Still I'm sad

Still I'm sad
Still I'm sad
Still I'm sad

Watch your life through your window
Shadows fall
As the darkness falls to gray
9. I Surrender (3:03)
Leave me here alone.
Lying in the burning sun.
This world has bleached my bones.
I should have taken your advice.

Lying all alone.
Lost to all my memories.
Feeling like a stone.
As the sky above me starts to weep.

The desert falls.
In my mind an endless sea.
I will never know.
What was and that will never be.

Deep within this hole.
Flowers lying on my bed.
Softly as you speak.
Telling me that you've been sad.

Leave me here alone.
Cause I won't be coming back again.
The moments that we own.
Lie scattered in the sand.

I surrender. Surrender
All my love for you.
Please remember. Remember babe.
I'll be there for you.

Leave me here alone.
Cause I won't be coming back again.
The moments that we own.
Lie broken in the hands of time.

I surrender. I Surrender.
All my love for you.
Please remember.Remember.
I'll be there for you.

I surrender. Surrender.
All my love for you.
Please remember.Remember babe.
I'll be there for you.
For you.
10. Letter to Home (4:28)
Mother dear I've got to go
Find my way out in the world
Something's callin' me and I can't stay
As the leaves are fallin' down
Soon the snow upon the ground
Hope you'll understand why I can't stay

Waiting for the sun
When I start to run
Waiting for.......

Though I'm young not quite a man
I'll try and do the best I can
Duty calls my friends are all aboard
Feel the wind across my face
Standing ready all in place
On the trigger I'll become a man

Waiting for the sun

See the people falling down
Crimson colors all around
Tryin' to make it to the higher ground

Mother dear I had to go
Find my way out in the world
Sorry but I won't be coming home

Waiting for the sun
11. Can You See (4:09)
It's not hard to believe
That the world isn't real
When the sun doesn't shine in your eyes
All the time
It's not hard to concede
As we cry and we bleed everyday
We just won't leave
Feel your heart stop
Still alive but you're not
So you scream that you've had enough,
Done enough, said enough

See the reflections of lives that you've changed
As you look in the mirror and try to believe
It's been hard that I know
But I could have told you so
You reap what you sow

Can you see
In my face
All these tears I saved for you
Can you see
It's not right
That our love was never real

Is it right to hold on to the words that we spoke
Even though now that feeling is gone in your eyes
It's been hard to let you go
Even though you found someone new
Everyday
It's been hard to find
With no peace of mind

Can you see......
12. Care for You [Unplugged Version] (3:58)
As I walked along the beach last night
Tried to find myself and get it right
If you saw the changes in my eyes
Riding on the wind you know it cries
When you need some one
It's hard to let them go
When you know that their the one
When you feel your hope is gone
Know that I still care for you
Even though your gone
I taste your tears
You think it would have passed
After all these years
Though you find away
Every night I think of you
I hope your sleeping well
When you need some one
When your hearts alone
When you feel your hope is gone
Know that I still care for you
When I feel you close to me
Even though it's just a dream
Please forgive that I still care
When your loneliness is there
I still think of you
Care for you
Waiting for
After all this time has gone
I still feel you in my arms
And when you need some one
Know that I still care for you
As I walked along the beach last night
Tried to find my self and get it right
If you saw the changes in my eyes
Would you come back
