David Cook Lyrics: Album 1 (David Cook)

Declaration
Songwriters: Cook, David; Rzeznik, John; Wattenberg, Gregg;

I’m taken just the way you are
Imperfect words inside the perfect song
I feel you closer than you are
But I’ve been waiting far too long, too long

It’s my declaration to anyone who’s listening
You’re my inspiration as I stand alone against the world
‘Cause you love and you bleed and you stole my soul to set me free
It’s my declaration

Do you care what I believe ’cause I’m still breathing
Or that I wear your heart upon my sleeve?
Sometimes I think you never knew
The only truth I see is you, is you

It’s my declaration to anyone who’s listening
You’re my inspiration as I stand alone against the world
‘Cause you love and you bleed and you stole my soul to set me free
It’s my declaration

Are there any words to say that I would ever mean enough?
When the light runs from the day will the darkness be too much?
Will I ever be enough?

It’s my declaration to anyone who’s listening
You’re my inspiration as I stand alone against the world
‘Cause you love and you bleed and you stole my soul to set me free
It’s my declaration
So tell me you can hear these words tonight
It’s my declaration

Heroes
Songwriters: Cook, David; Dennis, Cathy; Maida, Raine;

As the sun goes down in front of me
It reminds me where I wanna be, with you and you alone
Pull me in like you were made for me
I’m losing faith in gravity and I just need to let you know
And I just need to let you know

I’m not gonna come down, down off of these clouds
All these heroes come and go, you’re still standing
You teach me to rise up, to open my eyes up
All these heroes come and go, you’re still standing
You’re still standing

When the world’s confusing, I don’t care
I’ll crawl into your atmosphere
I know you’ll make it right
You’re all I need to know

I’m not gonna come down, down off of these clouds
All these heroes come and go, you’re still standing
You teach me to rise up, to open my eyes up
All these heroes come and go, you’re still standing

I believe that you can save me
And you’ll never let me fall
I believe in what you’ve shown me
Maybe there’s a hero in us all

I’m not gonna come down, down off of these clouds
All these heroes come and go
You teach me to rise up, to open my eyes up
All these heroes come and go, you’re still standing

I’m not gonna come down
I’m not gonna come down, you’re still standing
All these heroes come and go, you’re still standing
All these heroes come and go

Light On
Songwriters: Cornell, Chris; Howes, Brian;

Never really said too much
Afraid it wouldn’t be enough
Just try to keep my spirits up
When there’s no point in grieving

Doesn’t matter anyway
Words can never make me stay
Words will never take my place
When you know I’m leaving

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night, a naked light
A fire to keep me warm

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone

You know we’ve been down that road
What seems a thousand times before
My back to a closing door
And my eyes to the seasons

That roll out underneath my heels
And you don’t know how bad it feels
To leave the only one
That I have ever believed in

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night, a naked light
A fire to keep me warm

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone, ooh yeah!

Sometimes it feels like we’ve run out of luck
When the signal keeps on breaking up
When the wires cross in my brain
You’ll start my heart again when I come along, yeah

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Something I rely on to get home
One I can feel at night, a naked light
A fire to keep me warm

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone

Try to leave a light on when I’m gone
Even in the daylight, shine on
And when it’s late at night you can look inside
You won’t feel so alone

Come Back To Me
Songwriters: Bjorklund, Amund; Lind, Espen; Maloy, Zac;

You say you gotta go and find yourself
You say that you’re becoming someone else
Don’t recognize the face in the mirror looking back at you

You say you’re leaving as you look away
I know there’s really nothing left to say
Just know I’m here whenever you need me I’ll wait for you

So I’ll let you go, I’ll set you free
And when you’ve seen what you need to see
When you find you, come back to me

Take your time, I won’t go anywhere
Picture you with the wind in your hair
I’ll keep your things right where you left them
I’ll be here for you

Oh and I’ll let you go, I’ll set your free
And when you’ve seen what you need to see
When you find you, come back to me

And I hope you find everything that you need
I’ll be right here waiting to see
You find you, come back to me

I can’t get close if you’re not there
I can’t get inside if there’s no soul there
I can’t face you, I can’t save you
It’s something you’ll have to do

So I’ll let you go, I’ll set you free
And when you’ve seen what you need to see
When you find you, come back to me
Come back to me

So I’ll let you go, I’ll set you free
And when you’ve seen what you need to see
When you find you, come back to me

And I hope you find everything that you need
I’ll be right here waiting to see
You find you, come back to me

You find you, come back to me
When you find you, come back to me
When you find you, come back to me

Life On The Moon

Here in this crowd I’m feeling all alone

turn me around and point me back to home
I’m getting lost more everyday
and I can’t tear myself away
from the stars in my eyes with no light

Here are my terms, have some faith in me
and I’ll let you be who you need to be

[CHORUS:]
Life on the moon, could it be any stranger?
life on the moon, would it feel this far away?
the life that I knew it’s through
and I’m gonna need you more than ever
I’m alone in this crowded room
it’s like the life on the moon

Flown off the ground my head’s up in the air
self-conscious to a fault with all the people everywhere
its getting harder everynight, to take the punches left and right
just to know that you are here by my side

Here are my terms, have some faith in me
and I’ll let you be who you need to be

[CHORUS]
Getting lost in my own atmosphere
stars in the sky all the stars in my eyes
is the cost of getting out of here alive

Bar-ba-sol

When I woke up I could see
The daylight had already passed me
It was such a fight to fade away to sleep
It’s a fugue

Come on
Found to chase down the dawn
And I fell every night as it turns
Into light with my eyes just shut tight
Sailing all alone
I thought I made it home
But I threw it all away

Oh where i’ve been sold and spun again
all before me like a dream
Falling in between
I feel sick, I feel nervous
I know just what I did to deserve this
Oh I know it’s not a dream

Keeping quiet
Laying low
Holding on to what I don’t want to know
Till the daylight turns to ash and blows away
Missing keys
Bloody nose
Consequences of what I chose
Keep on agonizing me
Don’t mind my memory
Cause it’s so defining

Sailing all alone
I thought I made it home
But I threw it all away

Oh where i’ve been sold and spun again
all before me like a dream
Falling in between
I feel sick, I feel nervous
I know just what I did to deserve this
Oh I know it’s not a dream

Oh where i’ve been sold and spun again
all before me like a dream
Falling in between
I feel sick, I feel nervous
I know just what I did to deserve this
Oh I know it’s not a dream

Mr. Sensitive

[VERSE]
Day in and day out
Watch ’em scream
Watch ’em shout
Through the silence
Through the silence
Give ’em ears give ’em eyes,
Give some point to the cries
And the violence
Oh, the violence
Hear ’em scream your name

[CHORUS:]
I would like to introduce Mr. Sensitive
The one who never let the worst get the best of him
Get the best of him

[VERSE]
This city feels low
Against the gleam and the glow
Of his diligence
To their elegance.
Just feel anger
Feel pain.
Feel the sun and the rain
Just feel something
Oh, feel something.
Hear ’em scream your name

[CHORUS:]
I would like to introduce Mr. Sensitive
The one who never let the worst get the best of him
Get the best of him

[BRIDGE:]
They throw the stones and bricks and bones
He didnt stand a chance they said
A little boy the world in show
But ignorance is bliss

[CHORUS x2:]
I would like to introduce Mr. Sensitive
The one who never let the worst get the best of him
I would like to introduce Mr. Sensitive
The one who never let the worst get the best of him
Get the best of him

Lie

You whispered that you were getting tired,
Got a look in your eye,
Looks a lot like goodbye.
Hold on to your secrets tonight.
Don’t want to know I’m ok with this silence
It’s truth that I don’t want to hear

You’re hiding regret in your smile
There’s a storm in your eyes I’ve seen coming for awhile
Hold on to the past tense tonight
Don’t say a word,
I’m ok with the quiet.
The truth is gonna change everything.

So lie to me and tell me that it’s gonna be alright
So lie to me and tell me that we’ll make it through the night
I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart,
Look me in the eye,
Lie, lie, lie.

Lie, lie, lie.

I know that there’s no turning back.
If we put too much light on this we’ll see through all the cracks.
Let’s stay in the dark one more night.
Don’t want to know I’m ok with the silence.
It’s truth that I don’t want to hear.

So lie to me and tell me that it’s gonna be alright
So lie to me and tell me that we’ll make it through the night
I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart
So look me in the eye,
And lie, lie, lie.

Don’t want to believe in this ending
Let the cameras roll on,
Keep pretending
Tomorrow’s all wrong if you walk away
Just stay

So lie to me and tell me that it’s gonna be alright
So lie to me and tell me that we’ll make it through the night
I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart
Look me in the eye,
And lie, lie, lie.

So lie to me and tell me that we’re gonna be ok
So lie to me and tell me that we’ll make it through the day
I don’t mind if you wait before you tear me apart
Look me in the eye,
And lie, lie, lie.

I Did It For You

Today’s not the same
as every day
it’s far from ordinary
The pain I endure
You’re my cure
but my mistakes have led me
far away from you…

You turn away
from all those things
that I’ve been trying to say
and all those promises
I shouldn’t have made
I did it for you

My open mind
feelings I just can’t reconcile
my heart’s on a string
these broken wings
you knew I’d be so fragile
Far away from you…

You turn away
from all those things
that I’ve been trying to say
and all those promises
I shouldn’t have made
I did it for you

I searched my soul
and all these feelings
that I can’t control
and you’re the one thing
that can make me whole
I did it for you

Try to let you know
Try to let you know
Try to let you know…

Today is not the same
as everyday
it’s far from ordinary…

You turn away
from all those things
that I’ve been trying to say
and all those promises
I shouldn’t have made
I did it for you

Oh I searched my soul
and all these feelings
that I can’t control
and you’re the one thing
that can make me whole
I did it for you…
I did it for you…
I did it for you…

You’re the one thing that can make me whole
I did it for you…

Avalanche
Songwriters: Cook, David; Griffin, Kevin;

I feel alive beside you
And all at once I am whole again
We fall into each other
Your atmosphere is all I’m breathing in
And in this rush we are crushed

Carry me down rolling in your arms
‘Cause I can’t remember ever falling this hard
Tell me tonight all that we have been
Was it nothing more than noise inside my head?
Crashing down, crashing down
In your avalanche, in your avalanche

These scars we wear remind us
The more we change, the more we’re all the same
Swept up in this emotion
We’ve fumbled through and made the same mistakes
‘Cause we are led to the edge

Carry me down rolling in your arms
‘Cause I can’t remember ever falling this hard
Tell me tonight all that we have been
Was it nothing more than noise inside my head?
Crashing down, crashing down in your avalanche
Crashing down, crashing down

Carry me down rolling in your arms
‘Cause I can’t remember ever falling this hard
Tell me tonight all that we have been
Was it nothing more than noise inside my head?

Carry me down rolling in your arms
‘Cause I can’t remember ever falling this hard
Tell me tonight all that we have been
Was it nothing more than noise inside our heads?
Crashing down, crashing down
Was it nothing more than noise inside our heads?
Crashing down, crashing down

I feel alive beside you
And all at once I am whole again

Permanent
Songwriters: Cook, David; Kreviazuk, Chantal; Maida, Raine;

Is this the moment where I look you in the eye?
Forgive my broken promise that you’ll never see me cry
And everything, it will surely change
Even if I tell you I won’t go away today

Will you think that you’re all alone
When no one’s there to hold your hand?
When all you know seems so far away
And everything is temporary, rest your head
I’m permanent

I know he’s living in hell every single day
And so I ask, oh God is there some way for me to take his place?
And when they say it’s all touch and go
I wish I could make it go away but still you say

Will you think that you’re all alone
When no one’s there to hold your hand?
When all you know seems so far away
And everything is temporary, rest your head
I’m permanent, I’m permanent

Is this the moment where I look you in the eye?
Forgive my promise that you’ll never see me cry

A Daily AntheM

Break your neck for some substance
This is temporary sanity, an exercise in vanity
So long to the ordinary day
Wrought with fictitious tales of how there’s any other way
Hold on to anything at all
It’s a long way down between the summer and the fall
If I told you that you’re everything
Would you sing along?
Would you sing along?

It’s a daily anthem
Would you sing my song at the top of your lungs
And we’ll all sing along, we’ll all sing along
It’s a half-faith blessing
For the lessons I’ve learned and never deserved
And we’ll all sing along, we’ll all sing along

Now the verses take hold
A gentle undercurrent of more years to grow old
Say goodbye to the cold
And try to forgive
Everything this night, as we sing your

Daily Anthem
Would you sing my song at the top of your lungs
And we’ll all sing along, we’ll all sing along
It’s a half-faith blessing
For the lessons I’ve learned and never deserved
And we’ll all sing along, we’ll all sing along

Oh, oh, oh, oh (repeat)

Kiss On The Neck

Put on a scent with some attitude
Put on a dress with some bite
Make up your skin like your favorite star
You’re going out tonight

When everyone’s under the gun
Just smile and hum along
So over it just a well trained pack
The same old song

I can say you were lost when you walked into the room
Such an old cliche
Hollywood’s full of girls like you
With your backbone stuck, inside your purse
Your fairy tale couldn’t get much worse
You’re a broken bird and we all know we can win you over
With just a kiss on the neck

You’re blowing up like a hand grenade
Can’t keep your foot on the break
You’re grinning because you’ve got it made
Such a colossal fake
When everyone’s smoking gun
Just smile and hum along
You’ll never win with your back to a grave
You got it all wrong

I can say
You were lost when you walked into the room
Such an old cliche
Hollywood’s full of girls like you
With your backbone stuck, inside your purse
Your fairy tale couldn’t get much worse
You’re a broken bird and we all know we can win you over
With just a kiss on the neck (kiss on the neck)
Oooh

You’re the sweetest thing I’ve seen
To think that you were meant for me
And I’ve got just one thing to say
With just a kiss on the neck

You can say
I was lost when I walked into the room
Such an old cliche
I can never get a girl like you
With my backbone stuck, inside your purse
Your fairy tale couldn’t get much worse
I’m a broken man and you all know you can win me over
With just a kiss on the neck
k-k-k-kiss on the neck

The Time Of My Life

I’ve been waiting for my dreams
To turn into something
I could believe in
And looking for that
Magic rainbow
On the horizon
I couldn’t see it
Until I let go
Gave into love and watched all the bitterness burn
Now I’m coming alive
Body and soul
And feelin’ my world start to turn

And I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time
To be more than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

Holding onto things that vanished
Into the air
Left me in pieces
But now I’m rising from the ashes
Finding my wings
And all that I needed
Was there all along
Within my reach
As close as the beat of my heart

and I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life

And I’m out on the edge of forever
Ready to run
I’m keeping my feet on the ground
Arms open wide
Face to the sun

I’ll taste every moment
And live it out loud
I know this is the time,
This is the time to be
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
I know this is the time
This is the time of my life
Time of my life
More than a name
Or a face in the crowd
This is the time
This is the time of my life.
This is the time of my life.
