• Already Over You Catch & Release
    Matt Simons - 2016

    You come home in what seems like forever

    I catch you sporting raised tail-feathers

    I ain’t stupid I can put four together

    There’s something going on in here

     

    You act like we don’t have trouble

    I take pleasure in bursting your bubble

    I know exactly where you been crossing double

    The lines have been drawn crystal clear

     

    How could you do me so wrong

    How could you do me so wrong

    So think about

    All of the ways I have slaved for you

    The home that I made for you

     

    Well, I ain’t coming home again

    This time tomorrow I will be gone and

    You can cry all you want

    I’m already over you

     

    You say that you don’t have another

    You tell me I’m your one only lover

    Well, I did me some work undercover and

    Found out what you’ve done and where

     

    I found fault with the things that you said to me

    I take salt with the shit that you fed to me

    By now, you are already dead to me

    Dead to me, dead to me, dead to me

     

    How could you do me so wrong

    How could you do me so wrong

     

    So think about

    All of the ways I have slaved for you

    The home that I made for you

    Well, I ain’t coming home again

    This time tomorrow I will be gone and

    You can cry all you want

    I’m already over you

     

    It made its way about town

    That you’ve been fooling around

    And made its way back to me

    Woah oh oh oh

    How could you be so unkind

    How could I be so blind

    To not have seen this immediately

     

    So think about

    All of the ways I have slaved for you

    The home that I made for you

    Well, I ain’t coming home again

    This time tomorrow I will be gone and

    You can cry all you want

    I’m already over

    I’m already over

    I’m already over you

     

  • Best Years Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    Saturday night, time to go out again

    Bask in my self doubt again, sounds like fun

    Stumble around, search for more games to play

    Think I’ll throw the whole week away, it’s what we do
    Take a picture witness from afar
    Losing a sense of who we are, as we find a sense of who we’re going to be
    All at once it’s changed, all at once it’s real
    Need to take control, learning just to deal
    Draw away our minds, till that day arrives

    This is how we’ll spend the best years of our lives

    Part of the crowd, I remember who’s hearts you wear

    I can’t help it I stop and stare, you caught my eye

    Talking to you, I guess it’s now time to be

    Trickin’ you into lovin’ me, maybe for a night
    Words they’ll fall so far they’ll fall so fast
    Gotta just make this moment last
    And let die for one more day
    The fear of ending up alone

    All at once it’s changed, all at once it’s real
    Need to take control, learning just to deal
    Draw away our minds, till that day arrives

    This is how we’ll spend the best years of our lives

    All the strange new highs
    Give to all time lows
    Problems take control, before anybody knows
    Luckily for me dreams are hard to break
    Balance to be learned between the give and

    Take a picture witness from afar
    Losing a sense of who we are, as we find a sense of who we’re going to be
    All at once it’s changed, all at once it’s real
    Need to take control, learning just to deal
    Draw away our minds, till that day arrives

    This is how we’ll spend the best years of our lives
    The best years of our lives
    The best years of our lives

    Long nights

    Years gone by

    Highlights of you and I

     

    We will ride

    We’ll be bulletproof

    One more time

    Nothing left to lose

    So keep your hands steady

    We’ll make our getaway

     

    Drive fast

    Make our move

    Don’t look back

    Your aim is true

     

    Long white lines

    Split the world in two

    On our side

    With nothing left to lose

     

    I take all the money and make for the door

    So keep the car running and head for the shore

    I hope they’re all ready

  • Breng Me Naar Het Water Marco Borsato - Evenwicht
    Matt Simons, John Ewbank, Gordon Groothedde - 2016

    In de vroegte van de morgen
    Sprak je zachtjes mijn naam
    En ik wist dat je me zeggen zou
    Dat het tijd was om te gaan

    Je zei schat maak je geen zorgen
    Ik zal altijd bij je zijn
    En ik wist dat je de waarheid sprak
    Door hoe je keek naar mij
    Toen je zei
    Toen je zei

    Ik ben klaar om op reis te gaan
    Aan de andere kant te staan
    Voorbij de grens
    Ik sluit mijn ogen
    Voor alles wat er komen gaat
    ‘t Is laat
    Ik ben klaar om op reis te gaan
    Ik heb alles wel gedaan
    Pak m’n hand en voel het stromen
    De liefde die ik bij me draag
    Ik vraag je
    Breng me naar het water
    Breng me naar het meer
    En leg me neer

    It was early in the evening
    She gave all that she could give
    And I felt her leaving me
    But I learned how to live
    When she said
    When she said

    I’m ready to close my eyes
    Steady and hold tight
    I’m gonna be crossing over
    To heaven and the great divine
    And I

    Ik ben klaar om op reis te gaan
    Ik heb alles wel gedaan
    Pak m’n hand en voel het stromen
    De liefde die ik bij me draag
    Ik vraag je
    Breng me naar het water
    Breng me naar het meer
    En leg me neer
    Lay me down

    Ben klaar om op reis te gaan
    Aan de andere kant te staan
    Voorbij de grens ik sluit m’n ogen
    Voor alles wat er komen gaat
    ‘t Is laat

    I’m ready to close my eyes
    They’re heavy and so wide
    I can feel it pull me under
    Steady as the rising tide

    Take me to the water
    By the road that leads you down
    Take me to the water
    Scatter me around

    Breng me naar het water/take me to the water
    Breng me naar het meer
    Breng me naar het water/take me to the water
    Voor de allerlaatste keer
    Breng me naar het water/take me to the water
    Breng me naar het meer

    Lay me down
    En leg me neer

  • Catch & Release Catch & Release
    Matt Simons, Erik Matthiasson - 2016

    There’s a place I go to

    Where no one knows me

    It’s not lonely

    It’s a necessary thing

     

    It’s a place I made up

    Find out what I’m made of

    The nights I’ve stayed up

    Counting stars and fighting sleep

     

    Let it wash over me

    I’m ready to lose my feet

    Take me off to the place where one reveals life’s mystery

    Steady on down the line

    Lose every sense of time

    Take it all in and wake up that small part of me

    Day to day I’m blind to see

    And find how far to go

     

    Everybody got their reason

    Everybody got their way

    We’re just catching and releasing

    What builds up throughout the day

    It gets into your body

    And it flows right through your blood

    We can tell each other secrets

    And remember how to love

     

    Da da dum da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum

    Da da dum da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum

     

    There’s a place I’m going

    No one knows me

    If I breath real slowly

    I let it out and let it in

     

    It can be

    terrifying

    To be slowly dying

    Also, clarifying

    We end where we begin

     

    So let it wash over me

    I’m ready to lose my feet

    Take me off to the place where one reveals life’s mystery

    Steady on down the line

    Lose every sense of time

    Take it all in and wake up that small part of me

    Day to day I’m blind to see

    And find how far to go

     

    Everybody got their reason

    Everybody got their way

    We’re just catching and releasing

    What builds up throughout the day

    It gets into your body

    It flows right through your blood

    We can tell each other secrets

    And remember how to love

     

    Da da dum da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum

    Da da dum da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum dum

    Da dum dum

     

    Everybody got their reason

    Everybody got their way

    We’re just catching and releasing

  • Emotionally Involved Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    All alone on the road done my miles now

    I’m a soldier, a dark horse, a warrior
    Hungry for, I don’t know, going oh so crazy from this distance
    Take my soul, take everything I know, take control of my existence
    You got emotional
    You got emotional
    We got emotionally involved
    We got emotionally involved again

    Saved my soul and it shows, such a friend to me
    All I know’s you’re so close, now we’re family
    But you got on, I got off, we got over it
    Have some sense, I’ll be steady with my intent, but I know we can’t forget it

    You got emotional
    You got emotional
    We got emotionally involved
    We got emotionally involved again

    I’ll never forgive myself if I lose you
    I’ll never forgive myself if I lose you
    Never forgive myself if I lose you
    My whole life

    You got emotional
    You got emotional
    We got emotionally involved
    We got emotionally involved
    We got emotionally involved
    We got emotionally involved again

  • Fall In Line Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    I’ve been fine here on my own. In fact, I prefer to be alone
    From these signs that you have shown, mixed up all that I thought I known

    You’ve been looking out for your own time and
    I was merely wondering if your’s and mine could ever align

    Saw you just the other day, I caught you looking back my way
    Then to your friends as if to say, “Yeah, this just might turn out ok”

    I’ve been looking out for my own time.
    And I’ve come around to thinking if you were mine, that could be fine.

    I don’t know you all that well, maybe
    Could be something special, time will tell, lady
    Pay no mind, there’s no way that we gon’ find it alone
    Nothing if we stall, heaven when we fall in line

    I’ll try and show what this needs to survive
    I think you’ll know when we arrive
    Listen, I will think of you only
    Ain’t you tired of lonely?
    So do what is good for you
    I’ve seen the way you act
    You’ve been trying to attract me too

    I don’t know you all that well, but maybe
    Could be something special, time will tell, lady
    Pay no mind
    There’s no way that we gon’ find it alone
    Nothing if we stall
    Heaven when we fall in line

  • Gone Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    Get on out of town, roll the windows down
    Feel that pouring rain, and leave it all behind
    Disappears over my shoulder, turn a new leaf over
    Freedom in my soul, I got nothing on my mind
    I’m ’bout to put this away oh

    Hear about it on the evening news
    All about a man with nothing left to lose
    We ain’t got nothing if we ain’t got shoes to run
    I know my heart is true
    So, what you want, what you gotta get me through
    I ain’t got nothing if I ain’t got you to love
    And I’m tired of being wrong, yes I’m tired of being wrong

    I’m so tired of being wrong I’m gone

    After the way things went, I’m not so innocent
    The way I acted and the foolish things I said
    And left behind with all those screams, sits a pile of my broken dreams
    I could rummage through or I ditch it all instead
    I’m ’bout to put this to rest oh
    Come on

    Hear about it on the evening news
    All about a man with nothing left to lose
    We ain’t got nothing if we ain’t got shoes to run
    I know my heart is true
    So, what you want, what you gotta get me through
    I ain’t got nothing if I ain’t got you to love
    And I’m tired of being wrong, oh I’m tired of being wrong

    I’m so tired of being wrong I’m gone

    For three long years I’ve been waiting, pick myself up off the floor
    I feel my time here been wasted
    I’m about to pack on up and get on out the door oh oh no
    Hear about it on the evening news
    All about a man with nothing left to lose
    We ain’t got nothing if we ain’t got shoes to run
    I know my heart is true
    So, what you want, what you gotta get me through
    I ain’t got nothing if I ain’t got you to love
    And I’m tired of being wrong, yes I’m tired of being wrong, I’m so tired of being wrong I’m gone
    And I’m tired of being wrong, oh so tired of being wrong, I’m so tired of being wrong I’m gone

     

     

  • How Do I Know Anne Sila - Amazing Problem (Deluxe)
    Matt Simons, Anne Sila, Gordon Groothedde - 2016

    Les yeux baissés
    Le coeur illogique
    Et tous ces mots que je ne te dis pas
    Tu es
    Mon coup de coeur
    Mon coup de panique
    Si j’avais l’cran de te dire que c’est toi
    Tu t’endors quelque part
    Tu t’endors sans savoir

    J’trouve pas les mots
    J’trouve pas les mots
    Pour tout te dire
    Sans les défauts
    J’sais pas pourquoi
    Ça tombe à l’eau
    J’fais que m’enfuir
    Toujours trop tôt

    Je te veux toi mais j’ai pas les mots
    Je te veux toi, que toi, j’ai pas les mots
    Je te veux toi mais j’ai pas les mots
    Je te veux toi, que toi, j’ai pas les mots

    I found the one to give all of me
    The kind of love that lets my soul transpire (I know)
    Willing and able to set me free
    Need you to hear me cause my heart’s on fire
    But you can’t hear me
    I’m not the one by your side

    How do I know?
    How do I know?
    Give me a sign
    Where do I go?

    Another life
    Some other time
    No other love
    You should be mine

    Je te veux toi mais j’ai pas les mots
    Je te veux toi, que toi, j’ai pas les mots
    Je te veux toi mais j’ai pas les mots
    Je te veux toi, que toi, j’ai pas les mots

    More than you will ever know

  • I Will Follow You Into The Dark Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    Love of mine someday you will die
    I’ll be close behind
    I’ll follow you into the dark
    No blinding lights or tunnels to gates of white
    Just our hands clasped so tight
    Waiting for the hint of a spark
    If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
    Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs
    If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks
    I’ll follow you into the dark

    Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
    I got my knuckles bruised
    By a lady in black and
    Held my tongue, as she told me

    “Son, fear is the heart of love”
    So I never went back in
    If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
    Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs
    If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks
    I’ll follow you into the dark
    I’ll follow you into the dark

    You and me, have seen everything to see
    From Bangkok to Calgary
    And the soles of our shoes are

    All worn down
    The time for sleep is now
    There’s nothing to cry about
    ‘Cause we’ll hold each other soon in the blackest of rooms
    If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
    Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs
    If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks
    I’ll follow you
    I’ll follow you
    I’ll follow you
    I’ll follow you
    I’ll follow you into the dark
    I’ll follow you into the dark

  • It’s Not Enough Catch & Release
    Matt Simons, Gordon Groothedde - 2016

    I’m a liar

     

    I don’t think about you the same way

    You’re an actress

    Act like everything’s ok

    I’m a drifter

    I’ve been drifting far enough to say

    I’ll be leaving

    I’ll be gone before the day

     

    There’s still love here

    The first love is the one that never dies

    You’re still shining

    You’ve got diamonds in your eyes

    Cut right through me

    Deep within my soul I’m paralyzed

    I release you

    You can be someone else’s prize

     

    It’s not enough, It’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough

    It’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, It’s not enough

    For me

     

    The darkness of the basement

    My parents basement

    Where we used to love

    We’re so quiet

    We can hear the footsteps up above

    I feel your body, I can taste your breath inside my lungs

    You’re like fire, you’re like fire on my tongue

     

    It’s not enough, It’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough

    It’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, It’s not enough

    For me

     

    I don’t know myself without you

    Afraid the world might swallow me whole

    Starting over

    With no one here and no where else to go

    No excuses

    Honestly, there’s something we both know

     

    It’s not enough, It’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough

    It’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, it’s not enough, It’s not enough

    For me

     

  • Let Me Go On Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    Here’s a tune, to formally know me
    How I’m bound to get lonely once left to wait
    We go out, we are bound to get wasted
    Settle down and just taste it
    Before it’s too late

    Pestered with tales of our responsibilities

    The world’s gonna bring you down to size
    I got a plan to fight the fire in your eyes

    Let me go, let me go
    Let me go on

    Let me go, let me go
    Let me go on

    So it goes, and I gotta be honest
    Better get on this
    Before it slips away
    The day will come for realizing potential
    It’s really not so suspenseful
    Get left with bills to pay

    Pestered with tales of all missed opportunities
    Of youth being wasted on the young
    I got a plan to fight the fire on your tongue

    Let me go, let me go
    Let me go on

    Let me go, let me go
    Let me go on

    Life’s too short to take people at their word
    Regardless of all you heard
    Everyone I know says once a season
    That they got a reason to change
    Usually they just rearrange

    Let me go, let me go, let me go on

    Let me go, let me go, let me go on
    Let me go, let me go, let me go on

    Let me go, let me go, let me go on

    Let me go, let me go, let me go on

    Let me go, let me go, let me go on

    Let me go, let me go, let me go on

    Let me go, let me go
    Let me go on

  • Light In You Catch & Release
    Matt Simons, Andrew Allen - 2016

    Somehow I’m worth your while

    I get to hold you first thing in the morning

    Then when I see you smile

    Brighter than the new day the is dawning

    It really me makes me wonder

    If this is real life

    Not a dream or spell I’m under

    With the way, the way that you make me feel like

     

    In a crowded room I’m the only one

    That it’s just us two and the setting sun

    There’s a light in you and everything you do

    Once again it seems you found a way

    To make me love you even more, then I loved you yesterday

     

    I figured I’d you tell you why

    I stay up some nights to hear you breathing

    With every day that goes by

    You’re the one and only I believe in

     

    If you’ll agree to have me

    Each day of your life

    I’ll try to make you happy

    Like the way, way that you make me feel like

     

  • Lose Control When The Lights Go Down
    Matt Simons, Steve Mac - 2016

    Escape with me
    I’ll hold you tight
    Let the sparks ignite the darkness while our hearts align

    Run away with me leave it all behind
    We’re estranged from limitation when we free our minds

    Do you think we could lose control?
    Get lifted when we lose it all We can be here in this crowd

    Feel the music ringing out
    With people ’round us singing loud
    It’s just you and me right now
    It’s just you and me right now
    Do you think we could lose control?

    (interlude)

    Stay with me
    Enjoy the ride
    We can play here in this perfect take a look inside

    Yeah lay with me
    Our hearts alive
    Find purpose and resurface from that pace we hide

    Do you think we could lose control?
    Get lifted when we lose it all
    We can be here in this crowd
    Feel the music ringing out
    With people ’round us singing loud
    It’s just you and me right now
    It’s just you and me right now
    Do you think we could lose control?

    (interlude)

    Escape with me
    Do you think we could lose control?
    Escape with me
    Do you think we could lose control?
    We can be here in this crowd
    Feel the music ringing out
    With people ’round us singing loud
    It’s just you and me right now
    It’s just you and me right now
    Do you think we could lose control?

  • Miss You More Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    Back when we made our choice, miles behind us

    Now when I hear your voice, I’m reminded of

    All of the love we share, how we’re missing out

    We got our lives to live
    I know there’s no one like you here

    I know there’s no one like you here

    And we both have no intention of holding back

    And I will miss you more
    You know I grow so tired, tired of leaving

    Motion will not be made by believing that

    We can just sit right here, love will conquer all

    That would be so naïve
    I know there’s no one like you here

    I know there’s no one like you here

    And we both have no intention of holding back

    And I will miss you more

     

    I will miss you more, I will miss you more

    Watch the months fly by

    There’s hope for you and I

    We must not lose sight

    oh no no…
    We’ll see how I carry on, on without you

    Knowing that most my thoughts are all about you

    Now, I will be waiting till we can be together

    I can come home for good
    I know there’s no one like you here

    I know there’s no one like you here

    And we both have no intention of holding back

    And I will miss you more

    I will miss you more

    I will miss you more

    I will miss you more

  • One Last Time Catch & Release
    Matt Simons - 2016

    It’s a little bit foreign

    It’s a little bit strained

    We’ve got our excuses, we’re emotionally drained

     

    It’s a little familiar

    Still a little bit blind

    Fighting it is useless as we’re losing both our minds

     

    Running on empty and I get you have to go

    We’ll take it one more time before you hit the road

     

    One last time, close the door

    Come by it honestly, suddenly feeling

    Two hearts breaking that thought they could make it

    Take my hand, show me you don’t love me anymore

     

    It’s a little bit tragic

    A little bit sound

    Yeah, damn good years of both our lives in a pile on the ground

     

    It’s a little bit stupid

    A little bit hard to conceive

    That it all fades away when you leave

     

    Running on empty and I get you have to go

    We’ll take it one more time before you hit the road

     

    One last time, close the door

    Come by it honestly, suddenly feeling

    Two hearts breaking that thought they could make it

    Take my hand, show me you don’t love me anymore

     

    Is this really over

    Is this really over

    Is this really over love

    We had our whole lives

    We had our whole lives

    Take my hand, show me you don’t love me anymore

    Take my hand, show me you don’t love me anymore

     

  • Pieces Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    The moment we meet
    Notice the sparks start to fly
    Turn into heat
    It’s gonna get cute you and I
    Comes time to leave
    Unaware hours gone by
    Done the best to stay
    Out of my own way

    Starts with a phone call
    Sided with caution, three day wait
    Certain you’ll soon fall
    Not gonna leave this up to fate
    Picture together
    All of my problems you erase
    I don’t hear a peep
    Guess I’ll get some sleep

    Every time I drop, into pieces over nothing
    At the top, with belief that this is something
    But its not, lie awake and I am wasting time
    Lying to my mind, lying to my mind

    The very next weekend
    My call finally gets returned
    My will has been weakened
    You’d think that by now I’d have learned
    She says we can be friends
    Bringing about my concern
    Never had control
    Back to feeling low
    Every time I drop, into pieces over nothing
    At the top, with belief that this is something
    But its not, lie awake and I am wasting time
    Lying to my mind, lying to my mind
    There is a so fine line
    Built to give way by design
    That you walk at your own risk
    of being left out in cold
    Or so I’ve been told
    I guess I haven’t been told, no no

    Every time I drop, into pieces over nothing
    At the top, with belief that this is something
    But its not, lie awake and I am wasting time
    Lying to my mind, lying to my mind, lying to my mind, lying to my mind

  • Say Goodbye Catch & Release
    Matt Simons - 2016

    Stay up lately while she’s sleeping by my side

    Still heartbroken by the way that lovers lie

    I used to need her now it’s hard to recall why

    I think it’s time to say goodbye

     

    How many days she did not call and did not write

    All we’ve been through I never treated her unkind

    Could not be bothered as she watched me lose my mind

    She can take her precious time

     

    But I still believe in love

    Visions of a girl that I’ve been dreaming of

    I can’t remember when exactly time was on my side

    I think it’s time to say goodbye

     

    It can be said that I’m naive and lack foresight

    A firm believer in strong will and appetite

    How many years now since they gave up that good fight

    They had bark but could not bite

     

    But I still believe in truth

    Words that once they’re heard do not require proof

    I still remember when it was that words were on my side

    I think it’s time to say goodbye

     

    How many parties and rooftop lonely nights

    How many girls, how many fancy evening flights

    Do I lay down before I get you off my sights

    It’s been hard to feel alright

     

    But I still believe in love

    Visions of a life that I’ve been dreaming of

    I can’t remember when exactly time was on my side

    But I can finally say goodbye

     

    Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo

    I can finally say goodbye

     

  • State Of Things Catch & Release
    Matt Simons, Ian Keaggy, Brett McLaughlin - 2016

    We don’t talk

    No confrontation at all

    Been building tension up high like a wall

    So that explains the state of things

     

    We still touch

    Use making love like a crutch

    I feel your heart barely beating for us

    Yeah that explains the state of things

     

    How many tears can we hold until somebody blinks

    And how many holes can we put in this boat till it sinks, till it sinks

    We can try to ignore it just comes back for more

    It won’t go away, go away

    So tell me how long we can both carry on in this state

    State of things

     

    We got stuck

    This faded love’s not enough

    With no direction we’re straight out of luck

    Yeah that explains the state of things

     

    How many tears can we hold until somebody blinks

    How many holes can we put in this boat till it sinks, till it sinks

    We can try to ignore it just comes back for more

    It won’t go away, go away

    So tell me how long we can both carry on in this state

    State of things

     

    Alone in the night though you’re still by my side

    Nobody’s wrong but I know this ain’t right

     

    So tell me how many tears can we hold until somebody b

    links

    And tell me how many holes can we put in this boat till

    it sinks, till it sinks

    We can try to ignore it just comes back for more

    It won’t go away, go away

    So tell me how long we can both carry on in this state

    State of things

     

  • Take Me Home When The Lights Go Down
    Matt Simons, Jimmy Robbins - 2016

    I can’t get to sleep

    I stayed up till

    6am all week

    I’m a mess

    I can’t stay on my feet

    I’m a danger to my health

     

    People everywhere

    It still feels lonely

    They don’t seem to care

    Cause they don’t know me

    Maybe that’s not fair

    I don’t even know myself

     

    I can’t tell what I’ve been trying to find

    All I know’s I’m going out my mind

     

    I’ve spent too many nights in the corner

    Oh, I used to be warm now I’m colder

    I need you and your head on my shoulder

    Take me home

     

    I thought I knew before

    When things were different

    I walked out the door

    So independent

    Now I’m not so sure

    With the way I’m missing you

     

    I don’t know what I’ve been trying to prove

    Or which mountains I’ve been trying to move

     

    I’ve spent too many nights in the corner

    Oh I used to be warm now I’m colder

    I need you and your head on my shoulder

    Take me home

     

    I’m confusing what I’m trying to say

    I’ll tell you in person babe, I’m on my way

     

    I’ve spent too many nights in the corner

    Oh I used to be warm now I’m colder

    I need you and your head on my shoulder

    Take me home

     

    I’ve seen so many places I’m tired

    All I know is I’m so uninspired

    I need you and your soul by the fire

    Take me home

     

    I need you and your soul by the fire

    Take me home

  • Tear It Up Catch & Release
    Matt Simons, Adam Watts, Grannin Arnold - 2016

    Take me home

    When I was younger

    All the parts unknown would feed the hunger

    When I’m on my own

    Can’t help but wonder how life keeps on tearing me down

     

    Take me back

    Back to the time when

    All the thoughts I lacked would keep me smiling

    Now the cold hard facts

    I seem to be finding by taking the long way around

     

    So we cry when we try

    While we empty out our eyes

    We grin and we bear till the end

    We can stare at the parts of our shattered broken hearts

    Or we put them back together and then

    We can tear it up all over again

     

    (woah)

    Tear it up all over again

    (woah)

     

    Take me in

    I wanna feel it underneath my skin

    Start taking over when I’m stretched too thin

    And need a shoulder

    To lean or for resting my head

     

    So we cry when we try

    While we empty out our eyes

    We grin and we bear till the end

    We can stare at the parts of our shattered broken hearts

    Or we put them back together and then

    We can tear it up all over again

     

    (woah)

    Tear it up all over again

    (woah)

    Tear it up all over again

    (woah)

    Tear it up all over again

     

    Take me there

    I gotta see it, need to find out where

    How to believe that all the love we share

    Can set me free and

    Keep lifting me up when I’m down

    Lifting me up when I’m down

     

  • The Higher Ground Catch & Release
    Matt Simons, Tamra Keenan, Gordon Groothedde - 2016

    There’s something about the melody

    How it hits when I close my eyes

    Straight to paradise

    There’s something about the harmony

    And the way it makes me feel

    Heaven knows that it’s real

     

    Everywhere I go

    I know I’m not alone

    I’m smiling just because I feel the love and

    It makes me feel at home

    Even when I’m down

    Within the heart of me I believe

    We can find the higher ground

     

    Woah woah

    We can find the higher ground

    Woah woah

    We can find the higher ground

     

    There’s something in the atmosphere

    Something in the air I can’t describe

    It makes me feel alive

    And there’s something about the people here

    That everybody seems to know

    Like one collective soul

     

    Everywhere I go

    I know I’m not alone

    I’m smiling just because I feel the love and

    It makes me feel at home

    Even when I’m down

    Within the heart of me I believe

    We can find the higher ground

     

    Woah woah

    We can find the higher ground

    Woah woah

     

    Come on up I want to feel it

    Come on up I want to hear the sound

    We can find the higher ground

     

    Come on up I want to feel it

    Come on up I want to hear the sound

    We can find the higher ground

     

    Woah woah

    We can find the higher ground

    Woah woah

    We can find the higher ground

     

  • The Ones You Keep Close When The Lights Go Down
    Matt Simons, Rune Westberg - 2016

    Nobody knew me better

    We went where nobody goes

    Secrets that should have been guarded

    Whenever we came to blows

     

    You said words, words I won’t ever forget

    I did things, things I will always regret

     

    The brighter the light that a love shines

    The darker the nights when it’s gone

    The ones you keep close can hurt you the most

     

    Nobody loved me better

    You got the best in me out

    We left our hearts wide open

    The worst in me could not back down

     

    I said words, words you won’t ever forget

    You did things, things you will always regret

     

    The deeper the trust that gets broken

    The harder it is to repair

    The ones you keep close can hurt you the most

     

    (interlude)

     

    We said words, words we won’t ever forget

    We did things, things we will always regrets

     

    The higher you let your love fly

    Oh the harder you hit when it falls

    The ones you keep close, they can hurt you the most

    The ones you keep close can hurt you the most

     

     

  • To The Water Catch & Release
    Matt Simons, Gordon Groothedde - 2016

     

    I walked into the bedroom

    On a rainy afternoon

    And I heard her say to me

    Not a moment too soon

     

    She said child don’t you worry

    I will always be with you

    From the way she looked at me

    I believed it to be true when she said

    When she said

     

    I’m ready to close my eyes

    Steady and hold tight

    I’m gonna be crossing over

    To heaven and the great divide and I

     

    I’m ready to close my eyes

    Heavy and so wide

    I can feel it pull me under

    Steady as the rising tide

     

    Take me to the water

    By the road that leads you down

    And lay me down

     

    It was early in the evening

    She gave all that she could give

    And I felt her leaving me

    But I learned how to live when

    She said, when she said

     

    I’m ready to close my eyes

    Steady and hold tight

    I’m gonna be crossing over

    To heaven and the great divide and I

     

    I’m ready to close my eyes

    They’re heavy and so wide

    I can feel it pull me under

    Steady as the rising tide

     

    Take me to the water

    By the road that leads you down

    And lay me down

    Lay me down

    They’re heavy and so wide

    I can feel it pull me under

    Steady as the rising tide

    By the road that leads you down

    Take me to the water

    Scatter me around

    Take me to the water

    By the road that leads you down

    There’s a place in my dreams where you’re still in the room

    And you’re next to me somehow

     

    There are times when I sleep on your side of the bed

    Now since you’ve been away it’s as close as I get

    Oh well, I should’ve learned by now

     

    Morning light

    Every now and then I start to feel alright

    Days are going by, I know I’ll heal in time

    Never thought I’d be scared of the dark

     

    Now I only feel it when the lights go down

    Feel it when the lights go down

    Only get that feeling when the night rolls around

    Feel it when the night rolls around

     

    There are times I get drunk when I’m all by myself

    Cause It helps me forget you’re with somebody else

    Well, it don’t really work that well

     

    And the other night I walked by your place

    Hoping by chance that I might see your face

    Oh now why did I think that would help

    Every now and then I start to feel alright

    Days are going by, I know I’ll heal in time

    Never thought I’d be scared of the dark

     

    Now I only feel it when the lights go down

    Feel it when the lights go down

    Only get that feeling when the night rolls around

    Feel it when the night rolls around

     

    Oh I only feel it when the lights go down

    Feel it when the lights go down

    Only get that feeling when the night rolls around

    Feel it when the night rolls around

     

    I’ll pray for light

    Four in the morning I don’t feel alright

    Nights are growing long, I hope I heal in time

    Never thought I’d be scared of the dark

     

    Now I only feel it when the lights go down

    I feel it when the lights go down

    Only get that feeling when the night rolls around

    Feel it when the night rolls around

     

    Oh I only feel it when the lights go down

    Feel it when the lights go down

    Only get that feeling when the night rolls around

    Feel it when the night rolls around

     

    Oh I only feel it when the lights go down

    Feel it when the lights go down

    Only get that feeling when the night rolls around

    Feel it when the night rolls around

     

    When I wake in the night I’m reaching for you

     

  • With You Pieces
    Matt Simons - 2013

    Honest where I start from
    I try and impart my wisdom
    A combination of truth and fear
    That’s the way it’s always been
    My father and his before him
    At times we hurt the ones we love so dear

    I’ll be with you, I’ll be waiting for you
    On the other side, on the other side
    And the winds that blow they’ll guide you home
    Get you through the night, get you through the night
    It’ll all be right

    My job to control you
    Darling though I barely know you
    Hoping you grow tired and start giving in
    Spout of holy water, pour it on my only daughter
    Maybe there’s a shot she’ll begin again

    I’ll be with you, I’ll be waiting for you
    On the other side, on the other side
    And the winds that blow they’ll guide you home
    Get you through the night, get you through the night
    It’ll all be right

    So wrong, and I’m here to make it right
    For what it’s worth
    And I’m sorry, yes I’m sorry
    If you never felt the love, the love
    The love that you deserve

    I’ll be with you, I’ll be waiting for you
    On the other side, on the other side
    And the winds that blow they’ll guide you home
    Get you through the night, get you through the night
    It’ll all be right, it’ll all be right
