Lyrics: On The Inside

OnTheInside_CoverArt On The Inside – EP (2015)

On The Inside
Be Me
If It’s Love
One Way
Sweet Release

On The Inside

On The Inside

We’re living in a fairy tale
Treated like you’re supposed to know
Morals overlooked somehow
Blinded by the picture show

So you set out to cut the track
Because you don’t want to run around
Drawing eyes to painted ceilings
Never bother looking down

And now my heart is yearning
And I am wanting more
I know the truth is waiting
All behind closed doors

On the inside
Keep a light on when I’m feeling lonely
On the inside
Maybe one day with my one and only

People play their numbers game
Gathering up those points and wins
More or less an execution
Wasting life on pointless sins

And now my heart is yearning
And I am wanting more
I know the truth is waiting
All behind closed doors

On the inside
Keep a light on when I’m feeling lonely
On the inside
Maybe one day with my one and only

Be Me

Be Me

Destination is all the same
While we choose our path, our fight, our pain
Well it’s never really clear
How we should lead it

So we float along in our social boats
Beneath our layers and overcoats
Afraid of making waves
Or trying to feel it

Let me see
Me as me

A world of words that cloud the air
Who’s here to love, who really cares?
If I spelled it out myself
Who then would read it?

When we’re bound by lines unlike before
Yet so far removed from what’s next door
Well if we’re standing face to face
We can’t delete it

Let me be
Let me be me

Head as high as always
Hand over your heart
Steady through the movement
Tear this world apart

Let me be me

Head as high as always
Hand over your heart

If It’s Love

If It’s Love

Seconds pound like dynamite
I am smiling
Hidden below this overbite
Hope that hearts can fuse

If it’s love
Let your love lay down on me

Frozen like a photograph
I am smiling
Focused right on what is left
Waiting on exposure

If it’s love
Let your love lay down on me

Wind feels like a hurricane
I am smiling
And my eyes are dry as rain
Oh how blown my mind is

If it’s love
Let your love lay down on me

One Way

One Way

You’re restless
Waiting for my call
Left you breathless
Inside of your walls

Not a late night story
Not nearly at all
You listen for me
I’m coming down your hall

I’m wondering
Am I dreaming?
I’m thinking
Never felt like this before

I’m hoping
You’re willing
To meet in the same place
There’s only

One way, one way, one way
One way leading back to you

From a distance
You will make the call
Frozen in an instant
Bracing for the fall

I’m wondering
Am I dreaming?
I’m thinking
Never felt like this before

I’m hoping
You’re willing
To meet in the same place
There’s only

One way, one way, one way
One way leading back to you

Sweet Release

Sweet Release

You are first in our last stand
I came home to be your man
Looked at me through a haze
Eyes that have seen better days

Feel the weight coming down, down, down
Nothing left to carry now

Times at night I hold your hand
Whisper words so you understand
All the answers you are looking for
Only one knocking at your door

Feel the weight coming down, down, down
Nothing left to carry now

Just your sweet release
Your sweet release

Letting go of all that’s you
Instead of holding on just to fight the truth
Gather around to watch you go
Static silence like we’ll never know

Feel the weight coming down, down, down
Nothing left to carry now

Just your sweet release
Your sweet release

  1. We kicked back and relaxed to your sounds tonight! We like them all, and Janice esp. likes “If it’s love” and “sweet release”….. Thank you for sharing with us! Next, you’ll probably come up with some “Tunes for Baby”

    • Thank you for listening, and I like the idea of writing tunes for our baby. Not likely that they will be ‘Tuni Tunes’, though, as we are so close to departure. There will be no starting of new projects for a while, as we have enough going on right now. Glad that I was able to get this EP out!
