I’ve been warm and I’ve been cold

It’s been drifting in my bones

It’s been a long long year

Another time another place

It’s been happening every day

It’s just good to have you here

Seen you know some things

And you’ll stretch them on

What you didn’t I know

What you did I sa-a-w

And what you see that I didn’t know

Now, What you told me to…

You watch out

See I wrote it for you

See I I wrote it for you for you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you and yoooooo

Say you walk, you take and stroll

down the way to the sun

So close to your heart

And it will take you alive

It will burn you up inside

But you know there’s – going home

See I wrote it for you

See I See I wrote it for you

Cause you told me to Cause I told you to

See I wrote it for you  See I wrote it for you

See I Cause you sing it out

Sing it out

“Wonder Where My Baby Is Tonight”

Well I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby’s gone
Hope she’ll do no wrong
Lookin’ for my baby, she’s not around
I wonder where my baby is tonight

I wonder what on Earth’s my baby’s doin’
If she’s not at home there’s trouble brewin’
If she really loves me she’ll believe in what I say
Tryin’ hard to find out where my baby is tonight
If she’s not at home I’d better go

Well I only know I wanna see my baby
Went to call for her but she is gone right out of sight
Looking for my baby
She’s not around
I wonder where my baby is tonight

Well I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby is tonight
I wonder where my baby’s gone
Hope she’ll do no wrong
Lookin’ for my baby, she’s not around
I wonder where my baby is tonight
I hope that everything’s gonna be all right
Well I wonder where my baby is tonight

“Love can”

Love can cross borders and love can break walls
Love can unbind us, love can define us
Love can see through what our eyes can’t undo
Love got me thinking love can do anything

Take my hand

It’s not that we’re lost

We’re just plotting a different course than we initially thought

We are free

When we’re on our knees

Put your hand in mine

We’ll make it in time you’ll see

Love can cross borders and love can break walls

Love can unbind us, love can define us

Love can see through what our eyes can’t undo

Love got me thinking love can do anything

Come with me

We’ll find what’s in store

For the heart that is bursting, the soul that is thirsting for more

We are free

Come and see

We’ll make it in time, we’ll find everything we need

Love can cross borders and love can break walls

Love can unbind us, love can define us

Love can see through what our eyes can’t undo

Love got me thinking love can do anything

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

 [Passenger]

If you get out on the ocean

If you sail out on the sea

If you get up in the mountains

If you go climbing on trees

Or through every emotion

When you know that they don’t care

Darling, that’s when I’m with you

Oh, I’ll go with you anywhere

If you get up in a jet plane

Or down in a submarine

If you get onto the next train

To somewhere you never been

If you wanna ride in a fast car

And feel the wind in your hair

Darling just look beside you

Oh, I’ll go with you anywhere

Oh, and I will be with you

When the darkest winter comes

Oh, and I will be with you

To feel the California sun

Oh, and I will be with you

In the night sounds and it’s true

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

If you get up in the hillside

If you ride out on the planes

If you go digging up dirt

If you go out dancing in the rain

If you go chasing in rainbows

Just to find the gold end there

Darling just look behind you

Oh, I’ll go with you anywhere

Oh, and I will be with you

When the darkest winter comes

Oh, and I will be with you

To feel the California sun

Oh, and I will be with you

In the night sounds and it’s true

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

Yeah, I’ll go anywhere with you

Oh, and I will be with you

When the darkest winter comes

Oh, and I will be with you

To feel the California sun

Oh, and I will be with you

In the night sounds and it’s true

Oh, darling I swear I’ll go anywhere with you

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

Oh, I’ll go anywhere with you

PRIDE

I never felt like this before

Try to hold it back and I feel it even more
Sweat drips down my spine and my knees are weak
I can not move, I can not speak

But then you came and I held it together again
I managed to stumble through
Fifty thousand voices singing in the rain
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do

Cause I’d move mountains if you asked me to
I’d swim the seven seas
I’ll be the one to hold your torch again
I’ll do anything you ask of me

Cause I’d move mountains if you asked me to
I’d swim the seven seas
I’ll be the one to hold your torch again
I’ll do anything you ask of me

I never knew how proud I would feel
Just standing in the rain.
These three words mean everything to me
And I’d sing it again and again.

Cause I’d move mountains if you asked me to
I’d swim the seven seas
I’ll be the one to hold your torch again
I’ll do anything you ask of me

Cause I’d move mountains if you asked me to
I’d swim the seven seas
I’ll be the one to hold your torch again
I’ll do anything you ask of me

Well the blue and the white of the flag shines bright
And it’s blowing there for me.
With my hand on my heart, the honest truth
There’s nowhere I’d rather be.

Cause I’d move mountains if you asked me to
I’d swim the seven seas
I’ll be the one to hold your torch again
I’ll do anything you ask of me

Cause I’d move mountains if you asked me to
I’d swim the seven seas
I’ll be the one to hold your torch again
I’ll do anything you ask of me

Nobody knows (how to say goodbye)

Nobody knows (how to say goodbye)

Lumineers VEVO

“Nobody Knows”

Nobody knows how to say goodbye

It seems so easy ’til you try

Then the moments passed you by

Nobody knows how to say goodbye Nobody knows how to get back home

And we set out so long ago

Searched the heavens and the Earth below

Nobody knows how to get back homeThrough the darkness to the dawn

And when I looked back you were gone

Feel your voice beat in me

Through the darkness to the dawnLove is deep as the road is long

And moves my feet to carry on

It beats my heart when you are gone

Love is deep as the road is longNobody knows how the story ends

Live the day, do what you can

This is only where it begins

Nobody knows how the story ends

Nobody knows how the story ends
