Spring In My Eyes

 

Let Me Go

I remember a time when my pockets were full

My vision was sharp and painted on walls

I’d go as I please, n’  Come when they call

And the road left behind me meant nothing at all

 

But I’ve grown up since then, and grown kinda’ fond

Of the way that life takes to moving you on

You can stand there and argue, but they won’t respond

And quicker than you think, the chance will be gone

 

So I slow it all down, take a deep breath

And hope that someday soon I’ll forget

 

These days I keep guessing, I guess that’s the way

The answers don’t matter anymore anyway

I’m out searching for questions, to help me along

Fixes are nice, but they don’t make you strong

So I spread myself out to the westerly wind

Being careful not to spread myself so thin

Away I will float and soon I’ll return

To teach you the things that I’ve just learned

Let me go….let me go….let me go…let me go….        today

 

Now look at this landscape, just look at this place

Is this what your God had in mind that day

All the bulls and the lions, have quietly gone

But these people are not leaders, so the masses struggle on

 

And where do they go to, do they think that they can

We’ve got the design but we’ve lost all the land

And the oceans are mighty, but not steady or sure

We’re starving for substance, still the people want more

 

So slow it all down, hold it in place

Draw in your strength from the hope in my face

 

These days I keep guessing, I guess that’s the way

The answers don’t matter anymore anyway

I’m out searching for questions, to help me along

Fixes are nice, but they don’t make you strong

So I spread myself out to the westerly wind

Being careful not to spread myself so thin

Away I will float and soon I’ll return

To teach you the things that I’ve just learned

Let me go….let me go….let me go…let me go….today

1. Let Me Go
Chad Mills  

Everything

 

What’s the simple I can say?

Why do I get carried away?

‘Cause the lines made easy stone cold and overplayed

If you wait around for me girl, I’ll explain

 

It don’t come easy, and the jump ain’t small

But I’ll be there to catch you when you fall

Then I won’t ask anything more from you at all

 

Was that glance you gave, one I read right?

Silent conversation underneath the neon light

Trace of invitation as your lips shifted to smile

Before you go can I hold you for a while

 

Everything slow, and perfectly

Feelings come like they were meant to be

Baby you can take everything from me

 

Baby you can take everything

You can have everything

‘Cause you’ve become everything….to me

Quiet Place to Breathe

STEAMIN’ WATER RUNS ALONG MY BACK

DAYS FIRST LIGHT IS SLIPPIN’ THRU THE CRACKS

MY EYES ARE CLOSED I’M TRYIN’ TO THINK BACK

TO LAST NIGHT…..

IT SEEMS I NEVER INTEND TO ACT THE WAY I DO

‘CAUSE DEEP INSIDE I MEAN THE BEST FOR YOU

BUT SOMETIMES THAT SCENE PLAYS ME LIKE A FOOL

WALKIN’ THAT LINE…..

 

I DON’T WANNA’ GO BACK NOW

I DON’T WANNA’ MAKE FALSE STEP

I DON’T CARE TO SAVE THESE DROWIN’ THOUGHTS

THAT ARE  SWIMMIN’ ROUND MY HEAD

I DON’T WANNA’ SPECULATE

AND I DON’T WANNA’ SEE YOU CRY

I JUST WANNA’ FIND A QUIET PLACE TO BREATHE

DRAW IN THE AIR & WELCOME BACK THE PEACE

FOR YOU AND I

 

DAY WEARS ON AGAIN LIKE WEATHERED SIGNS

I CAN FEEL YOUR ABSENCE CLOSE TO ME, WEIGHIN’ ON MY MIND

I GUESS THOSE FLASHIN’ LIGHTS ARE MAKIN’ ME BLIND

TO ALL YOU NEED

N’ I’VE ALWAYS QUESTIONED IF I AM GOOD ENOUGH

I BUILD YOU GOOD INTENTIONS, BUT THEY SELDOM MEASURE UP

I’M SPINNIN’ ALL THESE WEBS AND GETTING’ SO CAUGHT UP

JUST WANNA’ BE….JUST WANNA’ BEEE…..

 

I DON’T WANNA’ GO BACK NOW

I DON’T WANNA’ MAKE FALSE STEP

I DON’T CARE TO SAVE THESE DROWIN’ THOUGHTS

THAT ARE  SWIMMIN’ ROUND MY HEAD

I DON’T WANNA’ SPECULATE

AND I DON’T WANNA’ SEE YOU CRY

I JUST WANNA’ FIND A QUIET PLACE TO BREATHE

DRAW IN THE AIR & WELCOME BACK THE PEACE

FOR YOU AND I

3. Quiet Place To Breathe
Chad Mills  

Rain Storm N Thunder

Wake up to the smell of concrete

Mornin’ lights up, up on the empty street

But don’t ya’ feel sorry for me, cause I’m alright

Maybe just a little shy on my income

And nobody out there knowin’ where I’m from

Had enough to get me wet again, I guess it was a good night

 

Shakin’ change around in my cup

High strung, can you hold me up

Matters it to me I’ll wait by the curbside

Don’t mind, too much

Radios are screamin’ at me, wonder

If the bottles really out to pull me under

Guess a waiting game I’ll play ‘till it’s too warm

Rain storm n’ thunder

 

Hidin’ out in the alley and I’m drinkin’

I see ya’ watchin’ and I know just what you’re thinkin’

How could I ever quit on myself

Well stop a while ‘n I’ll tell you of my story

At least smile ‘cause you usually ignore me

Maybe someday I’ll see you again once I graduate from this Hell

 

Shakin’ change around in my cup

High strung, can you hold me up

Matters it to me I’ll wait by the curbside

Don’t mind, too much

Radios are screamin’ at me, wonder

If the bottles really out to pull me under

Guess a waiting game I’ll play ‘till it’s too warm

Rain storm n’ thunder

 

Scruffy face, scratchy voice & shabby clother

How to get outta’ this only God knows

But in the meantime friend, might ya’ help me out

Ya’ never miss those coins that ya’ dropped off

And maybe feel a little better that you stopped

Ain’t love for our brothers n’ sisters what it’s all about?

 

Shakin’ change around in my cup

High strung, can you hold me up

Matters it to me I’ll wait by the curbside

Don’t mind, too much

Radios are screamin’ at me, wonder

If the bottles really out to pull me under

Guess a waiting game I’ll play ‘till it’s too warm

Rain storm n’ thunder

Thunder!!  Thunder……and another one passes by

Spring In My Eyes

Been a long time since my last smile, was true

Keep walkin’ around feelin’ down, and blue

But if I look down the way I’m seein’ a day of change

It’ll bring me back to where I want to stay

 

The wildlife population’s pickin’ up

The trees, are beginnin’ to bud

The sun I been longin’ for is finally openin’ up the skies

It’s been a long, long winter, you can the spring in my eyes

 

It’s a seasonal thing that brings me here I’m sure

Diagnosis is the easy part, I’m still waitin’ for the cure

It don’t sit well that cold spell and months a’ gray

If I don’t escape then I don’t change

And you’re gonna’ have to take me that way

 

The wildlife population’s pickin’ up

The trees, are beginnin’ to bud

The sun I been longin’ for is finally openin’ up the skies

It’s been a long, long winter, you can the spring in my eyes

 

But it gets me up now

That’s why I’m singin’ to you

I got six or seven months to be who I want…

Before they catch back up to me…..those winter blues

 

The wildlife population’s pickin’ up

The trees, are beginnin’ to bud

The sun I been longin’ for is finally openin’ up the skies

It’s been a long, long winter, you can the spring in my eyes

5. Spring In My Eyes
Chad Mills  

Two Short Means

6:30 on an autumn eve

big cherry sun at the end of the street

drivin’ west, out searchin’ for me

this emptiness by my side

 

tires roll on an asphalt drive

echoed chorus of my songs playin’ live

got to escape in order to survive, n’ I

let unconscious be my guide

 

I revel in this time with two short means

To get me there alive

One of them is logical and the other don’t mind

I’m pullin’ for my heart to drive

 

My every choice at the mercy of my will

Have trouble sittin’ around when time is standin’ still

Can’t drown it in moonshine, can’t take it in a pill

It’s there in the valley down below

 

So I’m standin’ here on this big open plain

High octane energy runnin’ thru my veins

Regret to lose and contentment to gain

Gotta’ settle up before I go

 

I revel in this time with two short means

To get me there alive

One of them is logical and the other don’t mind

I’m pullin’ for my heart to drive
