Brother's Keeper Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. All I Wanna Do
Calling from the scene at midnight - talking like a movie star
Someone called you superficial, do you mind'
You party on until the daylight - and then you find, you've gone too far
It looks as if you're never making up your mind

There's something in your eyes, you can't hide
I wonder, if you'll ever notice, you're wasting your time

All I wanna do - 's to show real life to you
Drying all the tears in your eyes
And if you wanna know - c'mon and let it show
No one's gonna stop you this time

TV sails on cheap emotions - ego looks like sacred ground
Someday you might start to wonder, if it's true.
It looks as if you can't remember - a thrill that didn't let you down
I wonder if that's really all, you wanna do

There's something like a doubt on your mind
I guess, you'll never find the answer, unless you start tryin'

All I wanna do - 's to show real life to you
Drying all the tears in your eyes
And if you wanna know - c'mon and let it show
No one's gonna stop you this time

Some headline of the morning papers shows -
A fairy princess with a powdered nose - that's you
You lay awake at night and wonder why -
Those shiny daydreams feel like lies - they do

solo

When there is love, when there is love, you see it through
Just need some love, take some love
That's all you need to do...
2. All Of My Love
Dreamin' of the summerwind
Talking to the night
Silence left me over on my own

The memories of you and me
They keep me warm inside
For days are gettin' shorter now
And colder since you're gone.

And somewhere in that night - I see you cry
I wish, I could have wiped away -
The pain you felt inside

All of my love to you
All of my hope and my faith in this life
May all of your dreams come true
Forever you shall stay in this heart of mine

Summer came and summer went
'T was love on borrowed time
It feels like an illusion long bygone

And still I wonder, why we lost our way
I wish, I just could hold you now -
I wish you would have stayed

All of my love to you
All of my hope and my faith in this life
May all of your dreams come true
Forever you shall stay in this heart of mine

solo

All of my love to you

Repeat
3. Don`t Keep Me Waiting
Silence turns my heart into the night
Visions of the past begin to rise
I'm tired of looking back - it feels like wasted time
I just can't wait to leave it all behind

Don't keep me waiting
Don't let me stand here on my own
I learned the truth, that drives my soul's desire
Don't let it end here - I just can't make it all alone
My heart's on fire - My heart's on fire

Driving through the wastelands of my mind
Mysteries and dreams, I left behind

I'm tired of looking back - those days are dead and gone
My heart, it just can't wait to carry on

Don't keep me waiting -
Don't let me stand here on my own
I learned the truth, that drives my souls desire
Don't let it end here - I just can't make it all alone
My heart's on fire - My heart's on fire

solo

Don't keep me waiting -
Don't let me stand here on my own
I feel the truth, that drives my souls desire
Don't let it end here - I just can't make it all alone
We'll rise up high, we'll touch the sky
With hearts on fire - with hearts on fire
With hearts on fire

solo

With hearts on fire - with hearts on fire
My heart's on fire
4. Generation Jedi
(No, try not
There is no try
Do or do not
Unlearn what you have learned)

We trade in the truth - don't mind to spoil our youth
On comforts we feast, lip service - a well known beast
We close our ears - we heard it all before
Dispel no fears - no one left to adore

When the times are changing - the visions fading
The walls are falling
When the tides are turning - the bridges burning
The world stops spinning - around you

A simple message - underrated
I'm generation Jedi
And I hope there's some force to be with me
Intimidated - educated
I'm generation Jedi
And I pray for the day there's a light to see
For the generation Jedi

No good and no bad - do we believe this lie
A world all gone mad - we kiss our minds goodbye

So how come twisted words of wisdom
Do make sense
Tales of kings and queens gives us confidence
Cause we're much too used to cheap pretense
Laugh about innocence
Truth is nothing but offense
Political correctness spoiled our common sense
And nothing makes a difference

A simple message - underrated
I'm generation Jedi...
5. In The Dark
Somewhere in the city - fear inside your eyes
Don't know where you're going, trapped in your disguise
You rose to fame so easy
But somewhere in this night you're gonna fall.

Calling me a dreamer, how was I to know
The dark was gonna get you, you never let it show
But some day from the distance, the truth, it dawned on you
They trapped you, there was nothing you could do

Just look at you now, tracking your way from the start
You're caught in delusion, under the spell of the dark
And somewhere within, your soul's crying out to your heart
In the dark, in the dark.

Roaming in the twilight, hiding from the day
Soon they'll gonna get you - and then you gotta pay
And captured in the darkness - you'll know you've lived a lie
An outcast 'til the day you're gonna die

Just look at you now, tracking your way from the start
You're caught in delusion, under the spell of the dark
And somewhere within, your soul's crying out to your heart
Through the dark, through the dark.

solo

Somewhere in the city - a man who's lost his smile
Just waiting for the day he's gonna die

Just look at you now, tracking your way from the start
You're caught in delusion, under the spell of the dark
And somewhere within, your soul's crying out to your heart
From the dark, from the dark...
6. No Limit
7. The Cry
Silence is rising - from the burning shadows
Darkness has fallen - but I just can't stay
I wish you could see me - as I roam these meadows
I wish you could reach out - for I'm on my way

Is somebody out there - sharing this pain inside'
I know, I must fight it -
But sometimes I just can't hide - I cry

Send me a rainbow - right through the darkness
Drop me a lifeline - straight to my heart
Lay out a whisper - into the silence
I cry, I cry - the cry of my heart.

Soldiers of fortune - as the wind is rising
Selling illusions - but I turn away
I wish I could reach out - to those lost horizons
But who knows the bargain - and the prize they pay

Is somebody out there - feeling this pain inside'
I know, I can bare it -
But sometimes I just can't hide - I cry

Send me a rainbow - right through the darkness
Drop me a lifeline - straight to my heart
Lay out a whisper - into the silence
I cry, I cry - the call of my heart

solo

Send me a rainbow - right through the darkness
Drop me a lifeline - straight to my heart
Lay out a whisper - into the silence
I cry, I cry - the call of my heart

Send me a rainbow - right through the darkness...
8. Once Bitten Twice Shy
Riots raging in that silent city
Eyes of anger as you hit the street.
(You) don't know much about the art of fighting
But down in your heart you've got some fear to beat

And the night comes slowly - creeping in your mind
Once they got you running
It seems you go down just for one more time

Once bitten, twice shy
You took it easy, but now you fight
Once bitten, fighting back the eyes of night

Hey, bigshot, don't you run for cover
Fear's a sidekick you just can't deny
You can try, but you can never hide it
For out on the streets you're standing eye to eye

When the night comes slowly - darkness all around
Ain't no use in hiding
Just keep a cool head as you stand your ground

Once bitten, twice shy
You took it easy, but now you fight
Once bitten, fighting back the eyes of night

solo

When the night comes slowly - creeping in your mind
Ain't no use in hiding
What's left of yourself, put it on the line

Once bitten, twice shy
You took it easy, but now you fight
Once bitten, fighting back the eyes of night
Once bitten, twice wrong...
9. Push Me On
Troubled times - ages dark and violent
Lost my love and lost my life
On my way - crossed the seas of silence
Learned to fight - learned to survive

The darkness led me way astray - I cried
I've learned to be a castaway - it comes as no surprise

Push me on - dry my eyes
Guide my heart through the night
Underneath your silent wings of love
Drive me all the way, I know -
For my love, it will grow - I'm alive

Moving on - to a new horizon
And I'm bound to make it through

The sorrow, it can't hold me down, I'll fight
I know your light will lead me on - I know, I will survive

Push me on - dry my eyes
Guide my heart through the night
Underneath your silent wings of love.
Drive me all the way, I know -
For my love, it will grow - I'm alive, I'm alive

solo

Push me on - dry my eyes
Guide my heart through the night
Underneath your silent wings of love.
Drive me all the way, I know -
For my love, it will grow - I'm alive, I'm alive
10. Rainbow Eyes
From the edge of nowhere, when daylight is fading
I can see them rising, your eyes in the dark
Since the day I saw you - I'm searching and waiting
Driven by the memory, it tears me apart

And time after time I've tried
To break up that spell on my life

Rainbow eyes, Rainbow eyes
Haunt my nights - I'm tryin' to loose 'ya
Rainbow eyes, shine on bright
Where will you take me from here?

Many times I wondered - if love would deny me
Watching all my hopes, swept away by the wind
Many times I wished for that sweet gaze to guide me
Now I feel I'm drowning in that whirl deep within

And time after time I've tried
To break up that spell on my life

Rainbow eyes, rainbow eyes
Haunt my nights - I'm tryin' to loose 'ya
Rainbow eyes, shine on bright
The hope in my heart never dies -

My hope in my heart never dies,
My hope in my heart never dies

solo

And time after time I've tried
To break up that spell on my life

Rainbow eyes, rainbow eyes
Haunt my nights - I'm tryin' to...
11. Tell Me Lies
You say come with me - the land of the free
Is waiting for us - that's where we should be
In no time you'll see -the lock fails the key
It's just a big fuzz - and we start to discuss

Your save bets and the old ways won't do it in these days
Don't walk around selling worn out dreams
And don't you try to tell me, we're bound to win this race
By staying in the same old place

Tell me lies and under cover take my song and let it die
Rocks did roll beyond you, brother
Oneway street with no return
Say what you want, but leave me alone
Your vision has long run dry - has long run dry

You say, heed my call - there's no way we'll fall
Your talk is cheap - for soundly you sleep
Go praise the past - know few things do last
Your time has come - leaving you numb

Your save bets and the old ways won't do it in these days
Don't walk around selling worn out dreams
And don't you try to tell me, we're bound to win this race
By staying in the same old place

Tell me lies and under cover take my song and let it die
Rocks did roll beyond you, brother
Oneway street with no return
Say what you want, but leave me alone

Your vision has long run dry - has long run dry

solo

Your save bets and the old ways
Won't do it in these days...
12. The Way
Riding on the wind - call it direction
Underneath the stars - into the night
I can see them rise - call it infection
Powerful and bright - guiding my life

Escaped from the chains of my sorrow
Laid out in the depth of my heart
I search for the gates of to-morrow
Show me where it starts

Show me the way - under the moon
Show me the rhythm of my life
I just can't wait 'till you come down into this night
Show me the way - out of the dark
Tearing the veil before my eyes - show me the way

Waiting for the wind - call it devotion
Underneath the skies - distant and blue

Unbound from the chains of my sorrow
Way down in the depth of my heart
In search for the gates of tomorrow
Show me, where it starts

Show me the way - under the stars
Show me the rhythm of my life
I just can't wait, 'till you come down, light of my day
Show me the way - to just where you are
Healing a tired and troubled mind - show me the way the way

solo

Show me the way - under the moon
Show me the rhythm of my life
I just can't wait 'till you come down...
13. Wasted Time
Remember better times - you told me 'don't think twice'
'We have the future on our side'
A life in overdrive - that's what you had in mind
But in the end it was just lies

For somewhere in that night your vision went astray
You lost it to the streets - a dream that broke away

Talking 'bout wasted time - you do
Talking 'bout wasted life
When the doubts are coming through
And the promises you've broken, coming back in rhyme
On your mind - wasted time
Ambitions flying high - they all were bound to die
You never noticed moving on
They turned into your dreams - just like some memories
But now you know they've come undone.

For now the tide has turned, somewhere behind those blinds
And no one seems to know an old man left behind

Talking 'bout wasted time, you do
Talking 'bout wasted life
When the doubts are comin' through
And the promises you've broken coming back in rhyme
On your mind - wasted time

solo

Talking 'bout wasted time, you doTalking 'bout wasted life
When the doubts are comin' through...
