Murder By Pride Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Eclipse Of The Son (4:04)
I've been running nowhere street
I've got to mend my bloody feet
I've thrown away ten thousand days
I've hidden black and white and painted gray

In my weakness, out of pride
I failed to see the other side
It's a lost and broken war
That I won't fight for anymore

[Chorus:]
Where did I go wrong?
A shattered life, a wasted song
I composed, I lived and wrote each one
What is destiny?
To Live and Love and Die Honorably
So I'll trade My Eclipse for The Son

I want to make a difference
I want my life to make some sense
Cause when it's all over
I will have to answer for myself

I'm tearing down my rotten fence
And burying my weak defense
I want to crossover
Its time to take my heart off of the shelf

[Chorus]
2. 4 Leaf Clover (3:42)
We've been on the outside looking in before
We've lived on the inside with a closed locked door
We've slept in the corners of the open floor

We go round and round and round and round and round and round and round

[Chorus:]
There's no strength in a unicorn
No luck in a 4 Leaf Clover
There's no life unless it's born
And no death when it's over

We've listened with open ears yet closed our minds
We've loved without any tears from our own eyes
We've gone to the parties in our cheap disguise

We go round and round and round and round and round and round and round

[Chorus]

There's no strength in a unicorn
No luck in a 4 Leaf Clover
There's no life unless it's born
And no death when it's over

[Chorus]
3. Peace Of Mind (3:58)
Now if you're feelin' kinda low 'bout the dues you've been paying
Future's coming much too slow
And you wanna run but somehow you just keep on stayin'
Can't decide on which way to go
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.
Now you're climbin' to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn't take too long
Can't you see there'll come a day when it won't matter
Come a day when you'll be gone
I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.
Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
Now everybody's got advice they just keep on givin'
Doesn't mean too much to me
Lot's of people out to make-believe they're livin'
Can't decide who they should be.
I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.
Take a look ahead, take a look ahead. Look ahead.
4. Alive (3:36)
Listen, birds don't sing anymore
Waves don't crash on the shore
'Cause You don't love me anymore
See, the morning sun doesn't shine
And the moon's nowhere to find
'Cause You don't love me anymore

[Chorus:]
Then I realize - I'm Alive, I'll survive
I was only dreaming that our love died
I'm Alive, I'll survive
I'll never stop believing

Feel, there's no wind in my hair
There's no warmth from the sun's glare
'Cause You don't love me anymore
Stand, there's no ground to walk on
There's no one to lean upon
'Cause You don't love me anymore

[Chorus]

Then I realize - I'm Alive, I'll survive
I was only dreaming that our love died
I'm Alive, I'll survive
I'll never stop believing or deny

[Chorus]

Listen, the birds are singing once more
The waves are crashing on shore
'Cause You love me....
5. The Plan (3:10)
Ten years ago
I know I loved You so
Right here, Right now
I just don't know

I've tried, I've lied
I've told the truth at times
I've laughed, I've cried
I've slept with open blinds

Where do I go from here?
I've gotta crucify my fear

[Chorus:]
I want to be the man, the one I know You see
I want to live the plan, the one with You and me

I'm worn, I'm torn
I'm sheared from side to side
But Your love, Your light
Is something I won't hide

I wanna go somewhere from here
So I can sail a sky that's clear

[Chorus]

I want to be the man, The One I know You see
I want to live The Plan, The One with You and me

[Chorus]
6. Murder By Pride (3:18)
Saturday night's a lie, I follow every cue
Sunday is sanctified, I smile and take the pew
Monday it's back to school - Am I learning, not at all
Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday, Friday I just crawl

[Chorus:]
Gotta fight, gotta stop living a lie
Gotta fall, gotta lay down and die
Gotta stand and run to the other side
Gotta live or it's Murder By Pride

Seeds that were growing have been dried up by my flesh
I walk the walk and talk the talk but where's the rest
I could have everything even what's behind the stars
But I built my prison without windows, without bars

[Chorus]

Gotta fight, gotta stop living a lie
Gotta fall, gotta lay down and die
Gotta stand and run to the other side
Gotta live or it's Murder By Pride

[Chorus]
7. I Believe (3:43)
I Believe in You and You believe in me
I Believe in Love and Love believes in me
I Believe in faith and hope and destiny
I Believe

I Believe in Life and Life believes in me
I Believe in God and what He sees in me
I Believe there's more to life eternally

[Chorus:]
I Believe

I Believe in peace and peace believes in me
I Believe in grace and grace believes in me
I Believe in mercy cause it's holding me
I Believe

I Believe in what is good and what is right
I Believe in darkness there's a shining light
I Believe to win the war you have to fight

[Chorus]
8. Run In You (4:15)
If I see You standing, one hundred stars away
It feels as though You're touching me
If I am landing, with a stormy night delay
It's You I want, it's You I need

When I'm lost I close my eyes
And suddenly I'm home

[Chorus:]
I just wanna run in You
I just wanna hide in You
I just wanna come to You
And not thirst anymore
I just wanna walk with You
I just wanna ride with You
I just wanna talk to You
And not thirst anymore

I feel demanding, I know I'm selfish too
I often live in my own world
I've been commanding, it's my way or we're through
If I am sand, you are the pearl

When I'm found I open my eyes
And it's You I see

[Chorus]
9. Love Is Why (4:07)
I woke up at six a.m., and took a look at me
All I was, all I am, I refuse to be
Within a simple breath, I taste my destiny
Before I lose what's left, I want my heart to see

[Chorus:]
Love is why I live, Love is why I die
It's what I give, and yet what I deny
It's what I need, it's how I will survive
Love Is Why

I can read, I can write, but still I'm deaf and blind
All the things I've discerned, I've given up to find
The only thing that sets me free is a mystery
Worth more than anything, throughout my history

[Chorus]

Love is patient, Love is Kind, Love - it has no pride
Love will wait forever, Love won't hide
Love is patient, Love is Kind, Love - it has no pride
Love will wait forever, Love won't hide

[Chorus]
10. Mercy Over Blame (4:07)
Love saves the soul
Hate kills the heart
Fear robs the goal
Hope gives a start

Forgiveness is a gift
Bitterness a chain
The ugliness we sift
His beauty still remains

[Chorus:]
When we all reach Heaven
There will be no shame
'Cause when we stand before Him
He will know each name
It's all about believing
He died and took the pain
When we all reach Heaven
It's Mercy Over Blame

Faith heals the scars
That pride has brought upon
Grace will be ours
When all we have is gone

[Chorus]

When we all reach Heaven
There will be no shame
'Cause when we stand before Him
He will know each name
It's all about believing
He died and took the pain
When we all reach Heaven
It's Mercy Over Blame
11. Everything (4:26)
To fear You, to love You, to seek You
To be near You, to be of You, be in You
To know You, show You, need You
To learn You, speak You, read You
To love You, show you, need You
To love You, speak you, read You

To see You, to hear You, to meet You
To drink You, to taste You, to eat You
To know You, show You, need You
To learn You, speak You, read You
To know You, show You, need You
To learn You, speak You, read You

[Chorus:]

You're my everything - (everything)
My bridge across the water - (my living spring)
The melody and the song I'll - (forever sing)
Don't You know that you're my everything
You're my everything

To touch You, to hold You, to feel You
To take You, accept You, reveal You
To know You, show You, need You
To learn You, speak You, read You
To know You, show You, need You
To learn You, speak You, read You

[Chorus]
12. My Love (3:14)
You know I really love you
Your love is beautiful, lasting and true.
I've searched for a true love for such a long, long time
Now, my search has ended, yes, cause you are mine.

[Chorus:]
I'll always love you and I'll always tell you so
As long as I'm with you, my love I'll always show

Whenever I'm sad and feeling real blue
I begin to feel happy as I sit and think of you.
I think of your face and your personality.
You are so beautiful, you mean everything to me.

[Chorus]
