The Acoustic Verses Lyrics

(6)
Submitted by level 휘리언
1. Sweet leaf (4:38)
Oh sweet leaf
Swaying in the wind
Under stars and moon
And sunrise gloom
Hanging on to the tree that gives you life

Oh sweet leaf
Has your time come?
Will your journey begin?
I'm afraid of falling and falling
With the wind
Away, away from your origins

Oh sweet leaf
How was it?
Hanging under stars
Feeling the wind
Knowing you're safe
Clinging on to me

Oh sweet leaf
Why did you leave?
Why didn't you stay?
How can I be your guardian angel?
When you are away?

Oh dear father
Let me tell you
I'd love to sway in the wind
Under stars and moon
And sunrise gloom
Clinging on to you

Oh dear father
Can't you see?
I'm not running away
I'm just searching for the real me

Oh dear mother
Why do we have to go?
Why don't we stay?
How can we be yours?
When we are always away?

Oh sweet leaf
When your time comes
2. The Burden is mine... Alone (3:15)
I feel the blood under my skin
Like so many times before
This journey got the best of me
And I am sorry I couldn't wait anymore

The burden is mine... alone

I feel the blood under my skin
And I hate every part of me
How could I lose the only thing worth keeping
Now I'm sorry I didn't wait for you

The burden is mine... alone
3. Maybe? (5:02)
Maybe
Dreams apart
You're visual for all
Maybe
Another time
You're more than air
In another state of mind
You're still dancing
In another state of mind

No need
To be afraid
You're not visual for all
You're no more than air
In another state of mind
You're still dancing
In another state of mind
(You're there)
4. Alone (3:44)
From childhood's hours I have not been
As others were --- I have not seen
As others saw --- I could not bring
My passion from a common spring
From the Same source I have not taken
My sorrows; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then --- In my childhood --- In the dawn
Of a most stormy life --- was dawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that 'round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold---
From the lightening in the sky
As it passed me flaying by---
From the thunder and the storm,
And the clouds that took form
When the rest of Heaven was blue
Of a demon in my view

[Part one: My Greater Cause]

As I ran down the street all the
Faces appeared to me one by one
By the fifth I took a sudden turn
The melting snow revealed the bodies
Buried long ago
All the violence a man can take
Broken bones, and broken homes
Beneath my feet

On the dark side
We'll meet again
And cook it up for one more dance
It's who we are

But I swear it'll be my last
And if I go, I go alone

In the eyes of elephant
Nothing's too big and no one
Proves you're wrong
But the kind they had to offer
Didn't do me any good
It barely cracked the softer shell

On the dark side
We'll meet again
And cook it up for one more dance
It's who we are

But I swear it'll be my last
And if I go, I go alone
Yes I failed and I can't go back
I'm wasted beyond my years
And I breath to let it go

All that I wanted was to slip away
For a little while
Cause I felt alone
And couldn't keep up with the world

[Part Two: Home Coming]

[Instrumental]

[Part Three: House Of Cards]

Where am I?
They're all gone
All is black and white
I think I have passed on

All so warm
All so calm
All these worries shutting down
Something's wrong
Something's wrong

Is it really you?

A moment of...
And they're all gone
If I could close my eyes
I'm sure I'd disappear

Here they come
Pulling me up from the mud
I've failed yet I'm holding on
Here they come
I'm hiding in vain
My shadow and I
In our house of cards

Never did I question myself for the truth
There never was a greater cause
Never did I open my eyes for you
But there it was my greater cause

Here they come
Pulling me up from the mud
I've failed yet I'm holding on
Here they come
I'm hiding in vain
My shadow and I
In our house of cards
- My greater Cause  
- Homecoming  
- House of Cards  
6. Childs Play part III (3:32)
7. High Tide Waves (7:49)
Hear that something... A pale misty sound
The more things change the more they stay the same
Heading out on high tide waves
Not afraid to fall, I'm older now, still standing tall

I'm holding head above water
Ain't going down
I'm holding head above water
Ain't going drown, Ain't going drown
I'm holding head above water
Can't hold me tied
I'm holding head above water
You can't break me... Shredded

I've spoke in different words... A grey soar voice
Different lines, remain the same
Heading out on high tide waves
Not afraid to fall, I'm older now, still standing tall

On this quest for answers, shaped my eyes
Without anger, wasted line
Cant you sense this feeling, feel it flow
I'm stronger now, let the tension go

I'm holding head above water
Ain't going down
I'm holding head above water
Ain't going drown, Ain't going drown
I'm holding head above water
Can't hold me tied
I'm holding head above water
You can't break me... Shredded
