Lyrics to Rock My Heart  

Change Change Change 

I’m gonna break it down 

Got a fever in my blood and that’s what keeps it boiling 

I’ll never come back down 

Of my own free will 

So I need you to keep me honest 


Abandoning the crowd 

Going under with hypnosis 

That just can’t be trusted 

I crashed onto the ground 

Tried to fly away to heaven 

But my wings are busted 

Fly away to heaven but my wings are busted 


Change Change Change 

Ain’t always what you want to be 

And I can’t see 

What’s staring straight in front of me 

And I don’t think there’s anybody out there now 

Who can keep us from this 


I’m melting with the ice 

Finding gravity’s salvation 

As I hit rock bottom 

I’m swimming with the tide 

And I know with every wave 

I need to give up something 


A stranger in this town 

Got the strongest inclination 

That I’m missing something 

I’m lost in translation 

No one’s hearing what I’m saying 

While my lips are moving 

Hearing what I’m saying [while my lips are moving] 


My, oh, my 

You’re drifting like a runaway 

And don’t deny 

Addiction to your yesterday 

And I don’t think there’s anybody out there now 

Who can keep us from this 


Here we are 

One step o’er the horizon 

And we cry out, “we’re ready for this life!” 

There ain’t no doubt about it 

Here we are 

Forward march, forget about the rearview 

Now, we’re ready for this life 

There ain’t no doubt about it 


I’m dancing on the edge 

Of redemption and destruction 

Can you tell the difference? 

This is the final test 

There’s nothing to figure out 

So, baby, keep on breathing 


Pool of Love 


Every day she calls my name 

Every day is not the same, but I am wanted 

As I live this life of sin 

She breathes deep and pulls me in 

Pulls me closer 


She releases waters deep 

I dive down beyond my reach 

As we’re carried out to sea 

As we’re carried out to sea … 


Oh, oh, swimming in the pool of love, oh … 


I declare my life complete 

As I kneel to wash her feet 

A celebration 

As if I’ve taken my last breath 

To commence a final rest 

A revelation 


Oh, oh, swimming in the pool of love, oh … 


One is the love I dream beside 

One is the love I can’t deny 

All of the fears I cast aside as empty 


Lose Control 


I’ve been hangin’ onto you 

Silent as it always was 

Ten years and we fade to dust 

Stranded on a one-way street 


Tell yourself you can’t move on 

Numb your words with alcohol 

Touch me and I crumble down 

Twisted on the razor’s edge 


There’s a danger in the air 

And the temperature explodes 

Got a bullet in my heart 

And a dagger in my soul 


Just when you think you move ahead 

And the ground begins to shake 

Feet are pushed before the ledge 

All pretenses fall away 


My thoughts keep coming back to you 

And the happy times we had 

Without a care, without a clue 

We’d never find out way again 


It hurts to say that I was wrong 

But it kills to hold these thoughts 

If there ever was a time to spit it out 

The time is now 


Watch me as I lose control 

Hold out, I will find my way 


The road I pave is a trail of tears 

A thief who gambles dreams away 

Sleeping in a bed of fear 

Broken promise is my name 


The flood is seeping underground 

The promise rising with the tide 

Pulsing with the sweetest sound 

Softer than a lullaby 


Watch me as I lose control 

Hold out, I will find my way 

Watch me as I lose control 

Clear the air and find my way 


Keep on runnin’ … 


When you stand before the grave 

It’s too late to face regret 

There’s no moment to replace 

All the love you didn’t give 


I want to kiss away the shame 

And mend your broken heart 

I will ravish all the tears 

That tore us all apart 


There’s a beacon up ahead 

Take a look around 

It’s the past and our mistakes 

Burning to the ground 


If you wanna rise above 

A chance to save your soul 

If it’s destiny you love 

Then you got to lose control 


Watch me as I lose control 

Hold out, I will find my way 

Watch me as I lose control 

Clear the air and find my way 


Keep on runnin’ … 




If wrong is right and war is just 

Red is the color of my dream 

I twist the knife 

I press it deep 

But you cannot hear me scream 

From the ledge I jump 1000 times 

And no one knows 


Become a man and serve your time 

Someone tell me what that means 

Forget your plans and follow mine 

Spend a lifetime chasing kings 

Shoot to kill and wipe your conscience clean 

It's an easy day 


Hello, hello 

You’ve caught me at a bad time 

Someone I meant to be 

Is caught in a web of sweet ridicule and lies 

So much for breaking free 

Hello, hello 

I can't seem to find my way 

How far you headed north? 

I'll sleep in the back 

And try not to ruin all your day 


And so I take my chances 

As blood comes pouring from a raging sky 

I wash away defenses 

As the universe flies by 

Life is an open grave 

The devil saved it for someday 

It don't matter, she don't stray 

She says she loves me anyway 


A friend in need is reaching out 

And I turn away like sheep 

It should be no big surprise 

That I just can't go to sleep 

Love and faith in me is least deserved 

She gives it free 


Her rhythm calls me in a trance 

I will dance to her sweet drum 

I beg for more 

While the deepest ocean sinks into my lungs 

And for the first time I can breathe anew 

And so it is ... 


And now we break through fences 

And love comes rushing like a waterfall 

We open up our senses 

And surrender to the here and now 

Love is an empty slate 

I watch her paint it on my day 

We don't worry and we don't wait 

She says she loves me anyway 


Stop, change, start 

Are you alright? 

Who me? I'm fine 

I've had a silent change of heart 

We both need someone to remind us who we are 


She says she loves me anyway… 

Rome Is Burning 


Sinking like stone 

Looking for a way out 

Over my head 

But won’t accept a bailout 

In turbulent times 

Play a little defense 

Truth may unwind 

Counter to common sense 


If you want to play big 

Then blow a bigger bubble 

A government man 

Spikes the juice in the punchbowl 

Sugar is sweet 

Cocaine is faster 

Gravity’s late 

Drink up, it don’t matter 


Get in line 

Do what they say 

Watch your step 

Have a nice day 

But baby, you know right 

So take a deep breath 

This ain’t a bad dream 

So move your head 


Racing out of town 

It looks like a fast train 

No stops left, wheels keep turning 

Boots on the ground 

Best avoid the freeway 

Don’t look back 

Rome is burning 


I made up my mind 

Just before sunset 

Never hold back 

Never have regret 

Water is wide 

Destiny is fatter 

Rock ain’t dead 

So scream a little louder 


If the elevator breaks, my baby 

You get to sweat it out 

If the water’s gonna rise above your head 

Then drain it out 

If the weatherman takes your mojo 

You’d better steal it back 

If you suck it all deep inside 

You better let it out 


You know the feeling! 

Far Behind 


In our past I stumbled on you 

Called your name and bled upon you 

You had changed my life 

You opened my heart 


One fine day I took and claimed you 

I did hypnotize and tame you 

In our wildest nights 

I took every shot 


And if loving you was easy, I’d be free 

But now loving you is wholeness severed 

Without the means to piece together 

You are now an object of my fear 

And we’re left without a happy ending 

No forgiveness, no transcendence 


In my life I have erased you 

I have crucified and raped you 

In my wildest dreams I have set you free 

But the truth is much more haunting 

Call my name and watch me falling 

For now I declare, “you are everywhere” 


And if loving you was vision I’d be blind 

So I chased my dreams as now or never 

To sell out to fairer weather 

Doing so I left you far behind 

And I frame the facts and circumstances 

To cast aside all second chances 


I see your face 

I know your name 

I am your pain 


Reach out to me, you know that I need you 

Reach out to me, you know I can see you 

Reach out to me, you know that you show up everywhere 


And if loving you was painful, that’s alright 

We were blessed to spend the night together 

You’re free to fly my world forever 

Now I live to build and make things right 

All those years I’ve taken you for granted 

I will crush and break this pattern 

You know I will always be here 

You know I will always hang around 


In my heart I’m always with you 

And I sympathize and kiss you 

Almost every night I pray you’re alright 

In my house I choose to name you 

And know no one can replace you so I hold you close 

As I let you go 



I left an old friend stranded on the side of the road and he’s alright 

I placed a bomb in the kitchen, it’s about to explode, but I’m alright 

I got a dancer in the basement, she’s a live wire, and she’s alright 

I made a prepaid arrangement with a gun for hire, but I’m alright 


I met a female companion good enough for love 

I get it three times a night, but it is never enough 

I found my heart in the freezer, I’m still thawing out 

I hear my family screaming at me, “We can work it out” 


I found my faith in a circle singing Kum-ba-ya, am I alright? 

I pack my things in a hurry just to stand in line for some good advice 

I play my dues for the drunks at the local bar and it’s alright 

I am the first to deserve the right to free my mind, come on back tonight 


I’d love to watch you endure the shit you put me through 

I am the first to admit I am a mirror of you 

Your breath has taught me who you love and who you take to bed 

Your hair is growing as the garden wrapped within my head 


Oh, we’re taking everything … 

Oh, we’re taking everything so seriously 

We’re taking everything 

Oh, we’re taking everything so seriously 

Seriously, seriously, seriously, seriously, seriously, seriously 


I left at dinnertime and swore there was no turning back, I feel good tonight 

Strapped to a polygraph to make sure I admit my dreams, don’t turn back tonight 

Once in a coma and alone, now I’ve a master plan and it’s alright 

Once a devil, now a halo, catch me if you can, do it quick tonight 


There’s a woman on the corner asking me for change 

I said change will come whether or not I walk away 

If you look me in the eyes and tell me who you are 

Then I’ll undress you in a minute and make you a star 

The Circle 


Buried in the center of the universe 

Sleeping deeply, drugged and faded 

Too weak to speak, too dumb to die 

Too numb to reason truth or lies 

It’s not a lot 

Today it’s all I got 


Love is wasted, grey and reckless 

Truth is a light that burns through promises 

Love sends a dove to fly through fire and free me from every place I hide 

But I turn away and run fast as I can 


Rock my heart until it ruptures 

Show me I can still love 

Teach me life is not as hard as I once thought it was 

Thank you for the hundredth chance 

Marry me, it’s all I have 

We will beat this in the end 

We will beat this in the end 


What you want and who you love’s a reflection 

Of a seed planted years ago 

By those just as clueless 

Thinking thoughts just as useless 

Who never found the words to heal this before 


My world is a landfill, yet still I cannot bury you 

My soul is a junkyard, but your presence shines anew 

The circle brings us face to face 

The circle weaves a sacred space 

How you own it is why I’ll never leave 


Rock my heart until it ruptures 

Show me I can still love 

Teach me life is not as hard as I once thought it was 

Thank you for the hundredth chance 

Marry me, it’s all I have 

Marry me, it’s all I have 

We will beat this in the end 

Follow You Home 


Out of the clouds, into the street 

Like a stray dog, I chase at your feet 

Baby, I don’t mind 

Baby, I don’t mind 


Caught in a dry spell that lasts half a lifetime 

Can’t even tell I’m still alive 

Baby, I don’t mind 

Baby, I don’t mind 


Warm November beginning 

Swinging on your pendulum 

For a crazy ride 

Holding fast to our decision 

Learning life is even better on the outside 

On the outside … 


Pull me out of a hat 

180 degrees 

She says, “wait and see, 

What would you give for a piece of me? 

For a piece of me?” 


True meaning exists in one dimension 

Set myself up for harsher criticism 

Baby, don’t back down 


It was the best I had to give 

It wasn’t good enough 

The greatest failure of a lifetime 

Is failing to give up on love 


I will follow you home to the ends of the earth 

Will you meet me there? 

(repeat x 4) 

I’m heartbreak wasted insane 


Music when I’m falling 

Laughter when I’m low 

Nervous breakthrough 

You can cut me when I’m down 

On the worst day of my life 

I get to love you 


Dreamed a little dream a long time ago 

Made a little wish and baby, don’t you know? 

Baby, don’t you know? 

Made a big move a few years ago 

Plant a little seed and baby, watch it grow 

Baby, watch it grow 

Long Way From Home 


I’ve got a feeling this could end quite badly 

I have the sense that life is overhead 

Warm earth and four walls surround me 

Migraine if only in my bed 


I fall asleep with my eyes wide open 

Nothing to see, but I can’t keep them closed 

Forbidden fruit brings the worst insomnia 

Promises sucked down by the undertow 


Slow down, love’s your hideaway 

She writes your ticket to all the world 

Bow down, thieves and runaways 

She gives a blessing to every boy and girl 


If love is the answer, I have just one question 

How do you mend a heart that wants to break? 

Crack me right open and make me your prisoner 

Bleed out the apathy with pain 


For every shadow is a light to guide us 

In every winter lies a spring ahead 

I may have stumbled, but there’s fight in my blood 

Heartbeat is faint, but baby, I ain’t dead 


And I’ve been so long without you 

We were young and on our own 

Every part of me knows that breaking free 

Is an art in letting go 


I have held too many secrets 

Here’s the one that you should know 

I’ll be always true now my heart’s returned 

From a long long way… 

A long long way from home 


Look to the east and you will always find me 

Follow the sea, my soul is underway 

Our vows renewed and history behind us 

Farewell never felt so free 


Living without you, a long long way from home … 

Show Me The Way To Heaven 


I was searching for a reason 

To come out of this crazy shell 

I was hunted, but out of season 

Looking for someone to cast a spell 

I was hungry, I was dirty 

I’d forgotten how to care 

I was reckless 

But without warning 

I woke up and found myself 


I said, “I’m alive” 

Could you show me the way to heaven? 


Forget the old me for a moment 

Could you be here in the now? 

And get to know me? 

We’re starting over 

We are breaking the old walls down 

I was hoping that I could show you 

The you I can see in myself 

And I was hoping that I could hold you 

So we’d remember how it felt 


Hold the line and show me the way to heaven 


I waste my life away, waste my life away 

Holding this regret 

I’ve burned my eyes away, there’s nothing left 

So all I want to know is “which way to heaven?” 


Because for a moment I thought I’d lost you 

I’m so glad we’re not apart 

Don’t be afraid now 

Don’t ask a question 

Don’t forget the truth you are 


Hold the line and show me the way to heaven
