GET ME OUT

words & music by LHS

 

You come to me to say you have feelings

You feel for someone new

The words they spill out of your mouth

Do I have to watch your tears too when

 

I see my love just falling

Falling down

Hanging in the air

Spinning around

Now all I can think is

Get me out

 

You say you didn’t mean this to happen

And you are so confused

Do I have to hear more excuses

And more lies too when

 

I see my world just falling

Falling down

Twisting in the wind

Scraping the ground

Now all I can think is

Get me out

 

They tell me that love is a journey

Sometimes it’s just complete

They say that there’s a bigger plan

And that all sounds so sweet but right now

 

I see my life just falling

Falling down

Hanging in the air

Crashing to the ground

Now all I can think is

Get me out    

PAPER BOAT

words & music by LHS & A. Hunter

Paper boat on a 2D sea

Susan do you think of me

In the flat blindness of a broken heart

 

You joke that you’re too serious

I stumble into nervousness

When can I see you, see you again

I want to call just as soon as your gone

Susan

 

Hindsight, well it’s 20/20

From where I stand the future’s fuzzy

So don’t let it come, come too fast

 

The moon is shining, the stars they are bright

I just want to get close tonight

Now’s the time to let go of the past

 

Gonna ride the wave a little longer

Till I know what’s going on here

Don’t turn around, don’t look back

I can make a little last

 

Paper boat on a 2D sea

Susan do you dream of me 

In the deep water

Or in silhouette

Paper boat

Hasn’t sailed yet

HARD BUT TRUE

words & music by LHS

It seems we belong here

To this moment in time

Nothing feels wrong here

So grab on and hold me tight

But I wouldn’t want to lie

And say this is for all time

No forevers, no fools

I know it’s hard, but true

I’ve loved just as strong dear

No, this ain’t something new

Though there is a difference

Between the others and you

My eyes aren’t as wide

I’ve learned too well how time

How time can be so cruel

Call it hard, but true

Hard but true

 

Don’t imagine, don’t project

What we see, is what we’ll get

 

All I want to do is reach through the night

And hear each other cry

These simple things will do

Come love me now

Hard but true

Hard but true

ONLY WAY OUT 

words & music by LHS

 

The only way out is in

If you want to stop

You’ve got to begin

Investigate the sin

The only way out is in

 

The only way up is down

If you want to get through

Got to dig around 

Search through the lost and found

The only way up is down

 

And when you know 

All that you sought is below

Then you can see

All that you are meant to be

 

The only way to laugh is to cry

If you want to live

Got to know you will die

Ask yourself why

The only way to laugh is to cry

 

If you want to move

Just be still

To get the cure forget the pill

Exercise the will

If you want to move just be still

 

And when you know 

All that you sought is below

Then you can see

All that you are meant to be

BET ON IT

words & music by LHS

I know you’ve been down

Been hard all around

It feels like this will last forever

But trust me, it’s just temporary

Some things I know for sure

Don’t be sad, don’t be blue

There’s a world just waiting for you 

With colored lights and happy songs

Magic nights and open arms

You can bet on it

You can bet on it

 

I know that you’ve cried

So many cloudy skies

It’s just a spell of bad weather

Cause it’s true, this too will pass

Some things I know for sure

 

(Chorus)

 

When all the world seems so dark

Remember that there’s a part

You’re still meant to play

 

Don’t be sad, don’t be blue

There’s a world just waiting for you 

With colored lights and happy songs

Magic nights and open arms

You can bet on it

You can bet on it

TO FORGIVE 

words & music by LHS

I sit here alone, destination unknown

Thinking about where life now finds me

Slings from the past, expectations dashed

Grievances I hold that bind me

I want to let it all go

But wishing has not made it so

 

To forgive, taking what is 

Leaving the rest behind me

So I try, time after time

But always I find, it’s not easy

To forgive

 

I have cried in L.A., I have prayed in Salt Lake

I have fought all the way to the Atlantic

Though it’s all disappeared, it still lingers in here

I had hoped that by now I’d forget it

I wonder day and night

What will make this alright

 

To forgive, taking what is

Leaving the rest behind me

Though it’s hard, If I just play the part 

Maybe I’d start

To forgive

 

So what do you do when the things you held true

Turn out to be just an illusion

I can blame all I want, I can curse, I can talk

In the end just who is losing

I’m told it only can help

Me more that anyone else

 

To forgive, taking what is

Leaving the rest behind me

It’s a start, to open my heart

From near or from far

Maybe it’s time

To forgive

SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE

words & music by LHS

Some people say I’ve got a problem

Some say I’ve got it wrong

I admit there’s a chip that sits on my shoulder

It won’t be over till I’m gone

 

Maybe one day I’ll change my mind

And begin to understand the other side

Maybe I’ll even want to come back sometime

But that’s somewhere down the line

Somewhere down the line

 

Lately friends treat me like a stranger

Some even say I’m bad

Yes my compassion has been in danger

But I’m not crazy, I’m just mad

 

Maybe one day I’ll see the light

The good Lord will give me a sign

Maybe everything will work out just fine

But that’s somewhere down the line

Somewhere down the line

 

What’s the cause of my belligerence?   

How did I get this way?

Try a few broken dreams, empty promises

And some failures of my own I’m ashamed to say

 

So excuse me for refusing all this righteousness

Instead I’ll head on out the door

I just can’t settle for your something less

So I’ll pray for something more

 

When I can feel a hand wrapped in mind

And I  can see someone standing by my side

Today I know it’s just a thought in my mind

But maybe it’s somewhere down the line

Somewhere down the line 

TERRAIN

words & music by LHS

 

I travel through people the way some do countries

Looking for new places to go

Excited by the next destination

Drawn to the great unknown

 

I survey the stretch that lies before me

Deciding the best way to start

Should I take the long way through territories

Or go strait for the heart

 

Terrain, I walk the terrain

The clouds they roll by me

As the faces they change

Terrain, I search the terrain

And wonder if this time

I’m going to stay

 

Sometimes my visit it gets extended

Sometimes I’m asked to return

Sometimes my visa, it has ended

Sometimes bridges are burned

 

Terrain, I cross the terrain

I bask on the beaches

I discover the caves

Terrain, I fight the terrain

I stagger up mountains

I stand in the rain

 

Through deserts, forests, I move all about

Follow customs of the local crowd

Sometimes I’ll pick up a souvenir

Or leave behind something that’s dear to me

 

But sooner or later my trip it grows weary

And I just want to go home

But as I pack I remember

I’ve no country to call my own

 

Terrain, I love the terrain

I dive in the water

I fall on the plains

Terrain, I search the terrain

But my vision it falters 

As I turn away

Terrain
