Edge
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

I’ve been living on the raw side of my life
Always looking at the grease and the crime
I ’ve been thinking ‘bout the clean side for a while
Been looking how to get there like a child
Feel how the wind blows
See how my love grows
Why’s that so hard to do for an animal like me

It’s hard
When you’re living on the edge, when you’re living on the edge,
When you’re living on the edge of a dream
When you’re living on the edge, when you’re living on the edge,
When you’re living on the edge of a dream

I’ve been running on the streets, running for my life
I’ve been looking to the sky and I don’t know why I can’t fly
And when I wake in a sweat, what do I see?
Freedom right in front of me
My legs grow tired, mile after mile
Do you think it’ll last forever?
Feel how the wind blows
See how my love grows
Why’s that so hard to do for an animal like me

It’s hard
When you’re living on the edge, when you’re living on the edge,
When you’re living on the edge of a dream
When you’re living on the edge, when you’re living on the edge,
When you’re living on the edge of a dream

How can I live my life when everything I feel, everything I see
Everything I know and love is a huge illusion?
Maybe if I close my eyes my heart won’t feel the darkness
You know it’s pounding double time, chipping the days away
I take the next step, it’s dark it’s cold
But I can’t be scared I ’ve got to be bold else I ’ll never
Feel how the wind blows
See how my love grows
Why’s that so had to do for an animal like me

It’s hard
When you’re living on the edge, when you’re living on the edge,
When you’re living on the edge of a dream
When you’re living on the edge, when you’re living on the edge,
When you’re living on the edge of a dream

Wasted
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

In the light
I can see where I ’m goin’
In the light
I shine like a beacon
But stumblin’ around in the dark
Doesn't seem too bright
I was high and I wasted all that time
So we step
Through the threshold of love
Unannounced
We're the life of the party
It’s hard to believe that were travelin’ easy
And the breaks are to the west
Yeah the breaks are to the west

I was high and I wasted all that time
I wont cry ‘cause I wasted, wasted, wasted
All that time

Don’t look at me when I’m drivin'
‘Cause it’s all you’ll ever see
I’m not the type to wait up
'Cause I gave it up to be free
Yeah free

I was high and I wasted all that time
I wont cry ‘cause I wasted, wasted, wasted
All that time
All that time

I was high and I wasted
I wont cry ‘cause I wasted
All that time

Fire
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

Water keeps on fallin'
Young girl keeps on bawlin'
She don't know the dif-frence
Between lovin' and desire

She's on fire
And she don't care if you love her
She's on fire
And she's younger than you think
She's on fire
And she's lookin' for another
Momma's little baby has taken to the street

Stranded in the night time
Hunger in her eyes
Ground still wet from rainfall
She finds a local bar
Chin up as she enters
She turns a head or two
And with her face, her charisma
She finds somone she can do

She's on fire
And she don't care if you love her
She's on fire
And she's younger than you think
She's on fire
And she's lookin' for another
Momma's little baby has taken to the street

She's certainly good looking, she wears the finest clothes
Where'd the money go to
Did she do it up her nose?

She's on fire
And she don't care if you love her
She's on fire
And she's younger than you think
She's on fire
And she's lookin' for another
Momma's little baby has taken to the street

To the street
To the street
To the street

The Hill
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan


You make a fist
And she comes crawlin’
You make a list
And she starts bawlin’
I can’t speak
When I am fallin’
I am weak

May I climb the hill today?
And play the masquerade
Can I play today?
And climb the hill tomorrow

I’ll slide away
She’ll be an actress
Beg her to stay
I hate her absence
Cause I
I Got her on my mind, I got her on my mind

May I climb the hill today?
And play the masquerade
Can I play today?
And climb the hill tomorrow

I hung around
And cut the cake
Just wanted to see what kind of fool I’d make

May I climb the hill today?
And play the masquerade
Can I play today?
And climb the hill tomorrow

Today

Just The Way
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

There was a girl on the street
With an oil painted face
She asked me if I’d like to go for a ride
I asked her why she’d singled me out
And she told me that I looked lonely
I said

Lady I’m way beyond lonely
It take more than a roll to make me feel whole
And I know that the past just ain’t comin’ back
And that’s just the way love goes

As the pictures I keep
Are slowly erased
I wake in the night just to look for the signs
Is there a scent in the air like that of her hair
If I spoke out would she hear me

Baby I’m way beyond lonely
It take more than a roll to make me feel whole
And I know that the past just ain’t comin’ back
And that’s just the way love goes

(solo)
Lady I’m way beyond lonely
It take more than a roll to make me feel whole
And I know that the past just ain’t comin’ back
And that’s just the way love goes

Baby I’m way beyond lonely
It take more than a roll to make me feel whole
And I know that the past just ain’t comin’ back
And that’s just the way love goes
And that’s just the way love goes
And that’s just the way love goes

Believe
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

Times are tough
The going's rough
And you don't know what to do
Just think about 
The years gone by
And where your going to
You've lost your love
And you can't get enough
Of the things you need inside
You gave it all
Then came to a wall
But could not give up your pride
And you think of the love that's wasted
And you're not sure you can take it
Anymore...
So you close the door
And shut down your heart
And try to pretend
Your not falling apart
They ship you off
To fight a war
So far away from home
The air is dry
It makes you cry
'What am I fighting for?'
They say he's mean
And a bit obscene
And he uses poison gas
And you think of the life that's wasted
And you pray your children grow up 
In a better world

(solo)
So you close the door
And shut down your heart
And try to pretend
Your not falling apart
 
You've heard them say
'Their just one way'
'Your hopes and dreams are a lie'
You Know the Truth
It comes from your youth
Those things that you desire
Are all but gone
A smoldering log
Don't put out the fire
When you look at the time that's wasted
And you're not sure you can take it
Anymore
But you open the door
And let go of your heart
And try to believe
Your not falling apart

Thinking Of You
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan


The sun is out and the sky is blue
I’m looking for clouds, a storm to ensue
No matter the size
Just a teardrop will do

‘Cause whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you
Whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you

If you become faceless
Or lost in a dream
I’ll find myself pushed to the other extreme
‘Blacken the skies
Darken the moon!’

‘Cause whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you
Whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you
Whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you

Lightning struck today
We both got swept away
I'm drowning in my love, drowning in my love
For you
As the tide rises, up to my chin
I beg god to help me, teach me to swim
I don't want to lose you, torn limb from limb

‘Cause whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you
Whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you
Whenever it rains
I’m thinking of you

Forevermore
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan


I played with the rules, spent good time with fools
Got left at the station when I lost all my patience
With love, oh love
I've run all my races, seen all those cold faces
Shut out the world and thrown out the pearls
Of love, Ah love

But when I found you, couldn't believe it was true
Lyin' beside you in bed
A safe place to rest my head
I give you my heart
I give you my soul
I give you my hand forevermore
Forevermore

I traveled those roads, left behind my best clothes
Turned up the cruise though' i's runnin' on fumes
Of love, yeah love
Through so many cold nights, i turned out the lights
Just lyin' there hopin', I thought I was copin'
With love, ah love

But when i found you, couldn't believe it was true
Lyin' beside you in bed
A safe place to rest my head
I give you my heart
I give you my soul
I give you my hand forevermore
Forevermore

I give you my heart
I give you my soul
I give you my hand forevermore
Forevermore

Forevermore
Forevermore
Forevermore
Forevermore

Someday
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

Someday I’ll be able to let you go
But right now I don’t know
They say I’ll be able to let you go
But right now I don’t know

Laxidaisical and Frenetic
Some people even think he’s pathetic
But I know he has a heart of gold
Serene, and quite beautiful
She bowed her head but I don’t think she said it
She left behind a single rose

Someday I’ll be able to let you go
But right now I don’t know
They say I’ll be able to let you go
But right now I don’t know

To touch, be close to her
To carry on as if we just wedded
We’d part before the break of dawn
He acted so damn innocent
To have her think even though it was hopeless
She didn’t buy a single word

Some day I’ll be able to let you go
But right now I don’t know
They say I’ll be able to let you go
But right now I don’t know

Oh my heart can’t be left behind
Must find a way to go back and get it
And bury all the things that hurt

Someday I’ll be able to let you go, but right now I don’t know
They say I’ll be able to let you go, but right now I don’t know
Someday I’ll be able to let you go, but right now I don’t know
They say I’ll be able to let you go, but right now I don’t know

I won't pick up the phone
'Cause I know that you're callin'
I won't answer the door when you come around crawlin'
Those letters that you sent, I won't even open
You won't see me in town
But I know that you're hopin'

If you could just talk to me
You'd show me how you've changed
I wonder what I'd see
But I know just what I'd say
You can make it up to me by leaving me alone
You're not the only one to love our happy home
If you regret that day you threw my love away
You can make it up to me by leaving me alone

If I pass in your dreams, Don't reach out and touch me
If you think that time has passed, go ahead and forget me
Don't try and send me flowers, you know I won't take 'um
And sweet, delicate things, I'll just go out and break 'um
You made a fool of me, you thought my love was free
I gave it all to you, and now it's all for
Now it's all for me

If you could just talk to me
You'd show me how you've changed
I wonder what I'd see
But I know just what I'd say
You can make it up to me by leaving me alone
You're not the only one to love our happy home
If you regret that day you threw my love away
You can make it up to me by leaving me alone

A.M. Air
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

We used to like to stay in cheap motels
Run, until we fell
I remember it well
We liked to take the car on holidays
And make love so far away from home
Sometimes it didn't make much sense
Sometimes I lost my confidence
And I put you through hell

We used to like to escape
And be alone like only we could be
Just you and me
Then the rivers of madness
Turned our glad to sadness
Making us feel foolish in the end

I cry myself to sleep again
Feel I've lost my only friend
Did I drive you away
Or was it going to happen anyway

We used to like to escape
And be alone like only we could be
Just you and me
Then the rivers of madness
Turned our glad to sadness
Making us feel foolish in the end

I remember when I told you that I loved you
I remember when it took all night to hold you
I remember, I remember your kiss
I remember when I couldn't live without you
I remember when I always thought about you
I remember, I remember This
We used to like to escape....

My Dad
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

At the schoolyard, the boys used to play
Teasing, and calling names
My dad's bigger than your dad
And when the words came round to me
I just smiled and gleamed
My dad's nicer than all your dads

He's been so good to me when I came down on my knees
I know that when I'm a father I'll look to my son and say
This is
My dad, he's been good to me
My dad, I hope you can see
I'm trying to be as good as my dad

Back when I was young
All the kids had so much fun
Playing in the yard with my dad
He's always trying to please
He'd love to make you smile
Never a dull moment around my dad
He's been so good to me when I came down on my knees
I know that when I'm a father I'll look to my son and say
This is
My dad, he's been good to me
My dad, I hope you can see
I'm trying to be as kind as my dad

When I hit my teens
I started being mean
I never meant to bring any pain to my dad
And now as I grow older
I can still cry on his shoulder
And borrow a couple of bucks from
My dad, he's been good to me
My dad, I hope you can see
I'm trying to be as generous as my dad

With You
©1989-2006 Lawrence Ethan

If we woke up in the morning
And everything was gone
Would you still be smiling
When I greet you with a song?

We could be together
All the day long
Everything's a pleasure
With you, with you, with you
I don't need your number
When i'm lying next to you
No talkin' to the dead air
And feeling like a fool

We could be together
All the day long
Everything's a pleasure
With you, with you, with you

Forget the rules
Forget the rules
Forget the rules

(solo)
 If we woke up in the morning
And everything was gone
Would you still be smiling
When i greet you with a song?

We could be together
All the day long
Everything's a pleasure
With you, with you, with you

We could be together
All the day long
Everything's a pleasure
With you, with you, with you
