Save Me 04:21
Useless using me for my eyes  I'm as blind as can be  But you know that I'll always try  To see things in the brightest of light.  Sometimes it feels like its dark all the time.  Nothing like falling over Before your feet even hit the ground  Got one hand on your shoulder  Baby, it looks like we're both going down.  So save my neck for me just one more time.  I'm guilty as hell It don't matter the crime.  But you got a way to make everything all right.  And I know you're gonna save me tonight.  It's when I get lost  that I don't play fair  Believe me when I say  I wish I could care  When it really matters  Cause that's when I'm gone.  So hand me another ladder  So I can climb back from the fall  So save my neck for me just one more time.  I'm guilty as hell It don't matter the crime.  But you got a way to make everything all right.  And I know you're gonna save me tonight.   (c) 2013 Jeff Campbell Music ASCAP

This is a joke.  A boat with lots of holes that doesn't float. A faded fable scribbled on a post it note.  Now listen to me read it cause its from the book I wrote.  So are you taking notes?  I'm telling you it's cold so you can bring a coat. The best laid plans were laid before I ever cast my vote Now I'm running from a ghost.  And it's following me everywhere I go.  Gonna steal your car and drive it coast to coast  Cuz I sold mine when I thought I would never need to go.  But now I'm running, so lets go.  No one man's got a say in what the future holds.  It's all been figured out and we just ebb and flow.  You're leaving home to find you know the way back, don't you? But you don't know the way.  Look at you of little faith. Believe it cause I'm running from a ghost.  And it's following me everywhere I go.  Gonna steal your car and drive it coast to coast  Cuz I sold mine when I thought I would never need to go.  It's not a cold.  It doesn't go away if you just sleep a lot.  So bite your lip and give it every little thing you got Cause I'm running And it's following me everywhere I go.  And it tells me all that I'm supposed to know. Gonna steal your car and drive it coast to coast  Cuz I sold mine when I thought I would never need to go.  © 2013 Jeff Campbell Music ASCAP

History 04:17
Down to a degree, it comes down to stand or fall. And that says something about the state of things. Oceans apart, or living around the block There's always been something about you and me. So we're closer when we're farther. You said we want to be remembered as the martyrs. You and I we're gonna go down in history. We've seen our hearts so broken Now its time that we should wear them on our sleeve. I like the way that we can enjoy the day And not have to worry bout tomorrows and yesterdays And I'll pave the way for many a good mistake. Cause that's what I do. But I'll make up for it in my own way. So we're closer when we're farther. You said we want to be remembered as the martyrs. You and I we're gonna go down in history. We've seen our hearts so broken Now its time that we should wear them on our sleeve. And even though they'll say we're crazy for the way we long to make it matter They'll tell you not to want to get down to the heart of it because it shatters. But they're afraid of ghosts. And we're so alive. So we're closer when we're farther. You said we want to be remembered as the martyrs. You and I we're gonna go down in history. So we're closer when we're farther. And it's like I told ya that I just know we'll be remembered as the martyrs. You and I we're gonna go down in history. We've seen our hearts so broken Now its time that we should wear them on our sleeve. © 2013 Jeff Campbell Music ASCAP

Should be no surprise that morning just turns into night. You can't take a roller coaster ride if you wanna see the sights. Because all the places and the things will just fly by.   And you're upside down half the time if I remember right. Weeks are going by. We're on like 49. It's hard to find the time for things like living your life. But our needs are small. Its all the things we think we need Just means we want it all.   So please just call. I got the thing that says we're friends But I don't think that you know me at all. Everybody's somebody in someone's eyes. But you can't be that somebody if you're outta sight. And I don't mean that in the way you think I might. Outta sight like, out of mind. Tonight's just not your night. Our needs are small. Its all the things we think we need Just means we want it all.   So please just call. I got the thing that says we're friends But I don't think that you know me at all. What's wrong with where you are right now? What do all those others have the one you're in is missing anyhow? It's like a race to get to now. Or at least to show them all what you have. Maybe you've forgotten that our needs are small. Its all the things we think we need Just means we want it all.   So please just call. I got the thing that says we're friends But I don't think that you know me at all. © 2013 Jeff Campbell Music ASCAP

Tides 03:40
In spite of everything, I didn't mean to start war. Tides bring what they bring and don't change their course. The real life aspects of daydreams can be cause for concern. In spite of everything, tides bring what they bring. And wash you away before I know you're gone. Fault lines move when there's something new to show through. A new face to the plain. Nothing like we're used to. In spite of everything, tides bring what they bring. And wash you away before I know you're gone. The tired is starting to grow in your eyes. But it won't grow no more. It's over sooner than you realize. Back down to what it was before. In spite of everything, tides bring what they bring. And wash you away before I know you're gone. © 2009 Jeff Campbell Music ASCAP
