Starlight (2017)

LOVE YOU BETTER

I can’t stop even if I wanted to
I can’t love you better
No one ever could

It’s just me in the city tonight
I’ll be under the neon lights
I can’t breathe
I can’t see

I’ve done all that I can
To try and get you to understand
Why can't you
Hold my hand

Let me take us all the way
Let me take us all the way 

I can’t stop even if I wanted to
I can’t love you better
No one ever could

Step back with this feeling inside
Tell me what's living inside your mind
Let's be
Set Free

I’ll give you the best things in life
Your darkness and I'll turn it to light
Why can't you
Hold my hand

I can’t stop even if I wanted to
I can’t love you better
No one ever could

POSTCARD

It’s a shame that I can’t sleep
Can’t dream of you at night
No relief when the day comes
Can’t stand seeing the light

You’ve been away for so long
I’m empty without you now
I’ve tried my best but I
Don’t think I can make it through without you

Try to leave in the morning
Get out of this house
Take a walk in the neighborhood
Think about what happened to us

You’ve been my life for so long
Gonna lose my hold on you
The way we left it all I
Don’t think I can make it through without you

You don’t need to write me a letter
You don’t need to sing me a song
You don’t have to stand out in the rain
All night long

I just need a sign that you feel it
Gotta show me you’re still there
Just send me a postcard baby
And I’ll know you still care
You’ll still care

Gotta be one of those days
When the clouds won’t go away
Are you looking at the same sky
Is the sun shining on your face?

You’ve been my life for so long
I’m empty without you now
The way we left it all I
Don’t think I can make it through without you

You don’t need to write me a letter
You don’t need to sing me a song
You don’t have to stand out in the rain
All night long

I just need a sign that you feel it
Gotta show me you’re still there
Just send me a postcard baby and I’ll know
You still care

We’re down to nothing
This love is crumbling
I know that we can make this into something

You don’t need to write me a letter
You don’t need to sing me a song
You don’t have to stand out in the rain All night long

I just need a sign that you feel it
Gotta show me you’re still there
Just send me a postcard baby and I’ll know
You still care

UP ALL NIGHT

One touch from you is all I need to feel alive
One look from you is what I want to see tonight
  
Don't stop rocking me baby
Don't stop making me crazy
You know I am your lady and
If you want it, you got it

Every time we touch I lose control
Just get next to me and lock the door

It's keeping me up all night, up all night
‘Til the morning light

One kiss from you can take me where I wanna be
Living this moment with your body close to me

I can't stop rocking you baby
I can't stop making you crazy
I know I am your lady and
If you want, I got it

Every time we touch I lose control
Just get next to me and lock the door

It's keeping me up all night, up all night
‘Til the morning light

LOVE (LETS ME KNOW)

Tear it all apart
That is what I do
Never go too far
You can never lose

Been waiting all my life for a savior
Just another lonely heartbreaker
But I always knew
That I’d find you

Baby it’s true
There’s nothing left for me to lose
There’s nothing that I gotta prove
There’s nowhere that I’d rather be
Cause you’re my one and only
You’re the only one I

See how you look at me
Lets me know it’s got to be
LOVE

Every little word you say
Takes my breath away
LOVE

We should call it what it is
We’ve been given a gift

Baby I love
That you’re all mine
Been through darkness
I was blind

I lived another life before I met you
We can talk about what I’ve been through
But just hold me tight
Hold me tonight

There’s nothing left for me to lose
There’s nothing that I gotta prove
There’s nowhere that I’d rather be
Cause you’re my one and only
You’re the only one I

See how you look at me
Lets me know it’s got to be
LOVE

Every little word you say
Takes my breath away
LOVE

We should call it what it is
We’ve been given a gift

Oh baby got to know it
Oh baby got to show it

All we need
You and me
Endlessly
Baby come to me

See how you look at me
Lets me know it’s got to be
LOVE

Every little word you say
Takes my breath away
LOVE

We should call it what it is
We’ve been given a gift

IF IT WAS YOU

Every time I look at it
I don’t know, I don’t know what to do
And every time I cry about it
Is this what we’re really coming to?

Think that they can touch us
And we'll just crawl away down on our knees
Think that they can play us
But we won't go away, won't ever leave

Feel it on the left, feel it on the right
Watch out baby it's dynamite
Feel it in the day, feel it in the night
Heaven knows that we must be right

If it was you wouldn't you want to
Burn it down to the ground?
Tell me the truth wouldn’t you want to
Tear it down to the ground?

People on the streets
Smoke and fire splashed across your screen
But if you saw their lives
Any other day it ain't a dream

Living in the ghetto
You just can't win, not even if you try
I’m not gonna judge, no
Cause everyone is trying to stay alive  

Feel it on the left, feel it on the right
Watch out baby it's dynamite
Feel it in the day, feel it in the night
Heaven knows that we must be right

If it was you wouldn't you want to
Burn it down to the ground?
Tell me the truth wouldn’t you want to
Tear it down to the ground?

Do what you gotta do
What you got to lose
I think you’ve earned it

If it was you wouldn't you want to
Burn it down to the ground?
Tell me the truth wouldn’t you want to
Tear it down to the ground?

TOO LATE

Just a couple things on my mind
Since I’ve been home
Just a couple things I should say
When we’re alone

You had the nerve to come up to me
Tell me how good I look, ask if I’m free

What can I say?
Look at my face

You had your chance
And I did my best

But now it’s too late, too late
Honey I can’t wait, can’t wait
But now it’s too late, too late
Honey I can’t wait, can’t wait

Let me help you remember
The things that you said
If you thought I’d forget
And it’s all in my head

“I’ll be the only thing you’ll ever have”
Look how tables have turned in the end

I helped myself
And found someone else

You had your chance
I did my best

But now it’s too late, too late
Honey I can’t wait, can’t wait
But now it’s too late, too late
Honey I can’t wait, can’t wait

You should have realized what you had
Before it was gone
Now that I'm looking fine
You're calling me, texting me
All night long
And if you think that
I'm going home with you today
Baby there's just one more thing
That I have to say

You had your chance

But now it’s too late, too late
Honey I can’t wait, can’t wait
But now it’s too late, too late
Honey I can’t wait, can’t wait

STARLIGHT
 
Are you living it up too fast?
Living it up too large?
Lied to
I'll never bring you down
 
Are you headed for another crash?
Going the wrong way round?
Tried to
I'll always be around
 
Talking bout what you need
Living your life like a fantasy
How many times do you have to bleed?
End up on the ground
 
Talking bout what you need
Living in the dark I’ll make you see
We can make it brighter
We can make it brighter
 
Starlight whenever you feel the need
Look up high that's where I'm gonna be
Starlight, shine bright
I'm gonna be good for you tonight
 
Are you thinking about your past?
Dreaming of another life
Cried to
I’ll never turn away
 
Talking ‘bout what you need
Living in the dark I’ll make you see
We can make it brighter
We can make it brighter
 
Starlight whenever you feel the need
Look up high that's where I'm gonna be
Starlight, shine bright
I'm gonna be good for you tonight
 
I’ll be there for you
Shining bright and true
Let go and come through
What else can we do?

Starlight whenever you feel the need
Look up high that's where I'm gonna be
Starlight, shine bright
I'm gonna be good for you tonight

THAT’S ENOUGH

There’s a new day coming along, my friends
A time when you won’t have to step on your brother just to make your ends
The people in need, the children that bleed
On our streets every day
We’re joining up our hands and we’re fighting for them

You’ve been traveling in this world all alone
Can’t seem to find a way, can’t seem to get along
You don’t have to be alone anymore
I’ll be there, I’ll be there

I heard her talking on my ride home on the bus
Lost her job, her home, and her food stamps, they ain’t enough
“Please sir, is there anything you can give me?”
She waited and I wondered is this how, how we’re supposed to

Live our lives
Is this what’s right?
After 20 years
I’m left in tears
I’ve had enough
It’s gone too far
Let’s take it on
Take it over now

You’ve been traveling in this world all alone
Can’t seem to find a way, can’t seem to get along
You don’t have to be alone anymore
I’ll be there, I’ll be there

EVERYTHING IS BROKEN

Just a little boy
With dreams about the world
Looking toward the city
Doing what he’s told

Big men on the street
Fancy cars and clothes
Green and gold and silver
Everybody knows

No one ever told him
No one ever showed him
Underneath the gold trim
Everything was broken

It’s time
To set out on his own
Off to make a fortune
Off to make a home

No lies
He’s hustling every night
Every deal that comes
Don’t think about what’s right

Shift into the fast lane
Money, girls, some cocaine
Cash will bring you quick fame
Always sunny, no rain

Time has slipped away
You know how things can be
It’s been too many years
Since he's seen his family

He’s driving on the streets
Of the place that he once loved
All the shops are shuttered
Factories are gone

And he had kept his head down
Tried to make them all proud
Never thought it would come round
Even in his hometown

HOOKED
 
Coming for ya
Know that I can’t live without it
Talk about the way it makes me feel

I’m crawling towards ya
On my knees it feels like torture
Talking bout the way it makes me feel

It’s like walking on broken glass
Sleeping on a bed of nails
You got me
I’m just so hooked on it

No future and there ain’t a past
I don’t know another way
You got me
I’m just so hooked on it

You got my head in the clouds
You got me turning it out
You got me wanting some more
Fiendin’ for it, fiendin’ for it

I just can’t stop when I start
Feel it all fall apart
You got me
I’m just so hooked on it

Beggin’ and pleadin’
Don’t you know I’ve got to feed it
It’s all about the way it makes me feel

No heaven or savior
Can make me change my misbehavior
It’s all about the way it makes me feel

It’s like walking on broken glass
Sleeping on a bed of nails
You got me
I’m just so hooked on it

No future and there ain’t a past
I don’t know another way
You got me
I’m just so hooked on it
 
It keeps me up through the night
Keeps the hurt out of mind
Taking control of my life
Fiendin’ for it, fiendin’ for it

I just can’t stop when I start
Feel it all fall apart
You got me
I’m just so hooked on it
