Lyrics for Curtis'albums

 
THE FIGHT

there's a strength
in your eyes
and it's keeping me going tonight
if I fall or back down
you're there helping me up off the ground
all the dreams that I've fought to keep
start to feel like I just can't hold
I'm torn apart and you can see
I'm losing control
when I'm down you're there to say
I won't let you walk away
so I promise baby, I'm not letting go

I'm still gonna try
I may fall but I'll climb
I won't ever, ever, ever give up the fight

you're the flame
in my heart
and you're keeping me out of the dark
you believe
in me still
even when I've lost my will
to keep pushing through the walls again
I never thought it'd take so long
all the doubt I'm battling
but I wasn't wrong
all the years were not a waste
you showed me that it's all ok
so If I'm crashing, I'm going down strong

It's crazy the love that we have
your love, will always remind that

EVERYTHING

Have you ever ever loved someone so much It makes you want to dance
Standing right there in the middle of the street just shaking your ass shaking your ass
Have you ever ever loved someone so much It makes you want to sing
Just like Bono at the top of his lungs screaming I love you baby!

There’s something about the way you move
There’s something about the way you dream
There’s something about the way your million dollar smile can get you anything
There’s something about your angel eyes
Reminds me of a symphony
Yeah there’s Something about x 4 your (everything)

Have you ever ever loved someone so much it makes you want to cry
That Notebook movie never got my tears but you get me every time

Never have I ever seen someone who can compete with the setting sun
You got me feeling like I’m coming undone tonight tonight
Never have I ever felt like this
From one touch and a simple kiss
My heart’s beating like a bass drum hit tonight tonight

AFRAID

I'm afraid of standing in front of a crowd and letting all the people down
I’m afraid of mediocrity
and that you might give up on me

I'm afraid I’ll disappoint my dad
His silence is the loudest sound
I'm even afraid of the dark sometimes
my imagination’s wild

Maybe that's the reason why it’s hard to say forever babe
I can see 10 years from now, but tomorrow's unclear
I get so afraid Sometimes that I won’t know what to do
But I’m not afraid to love you
I’m not afraid to love you

I'm afraid I’ll have to compromise
And not see my dreams come to pass
I hate to make my mother cry, which I've done too many times
I’m afraid of walking down that aisle but I don’t know why, I can’t say why
I'm afraid you give way too much to us and I never give enough

I’m afraid to talk on the phone today
I might be playing it way too safe
I'm afraid of someone hurting you when I’m a million miles away
And for my brother's gentle soul in a violent world in a violent war
I'm afraid I've pushed too hard in life and  I've missed the point of it all

EVERYBODY LOVES YOU

I know you think they got all the luck
and you're the one who's stuck here crying
you feel like you’re in shadows all alone
but darlin I can see you shining

you can say that you’re done
that you've lost belief
but please won’t you listen to some truth babe

take a look around you now
take a look around you now
everybody loves you
everybody loves you
take a look around you now
tell me what you see when your heads not down
everybody loves you
everybody loves you

you see stars exploding everywhere
but never blowing up your name
all those fears can shut your engines down
but we know you’re a rocket set to flame

you can say what you want
that you’ve lost belief
but please won’t you listen to some truth babe

I can see it written on your face
But let me bring some peace to you babe

when the voices tell ya
that you’re all alone
if you feel like crying
don’t don’t don’t

MADE FOR ME (FOREVER)

when we first kissed I may have had a a few drinks
so excited you know you had me shaking
When I said I love you for the first time, I may have started the party with some red wine
doesn't change us doesn't change anything

I can never explain just why I feel this way
oh you're turning me on yeah you intoxicate
me more than a crush
this is real this is love
you got all that I need like you were made for me forever

what we're building it's a perfect kind of love
the way it's got me makes me feel like I'm drunk
I know our lives have got us running crazy
but I'd do anything for ya baby
and every moment you and me would be enough

When I said I love you for the first time,
I may have started the party with some red wine
doesn't change us doesn't change anything

ROOFTOP

From 5 flights
the city view makes everything all right
but baby in that moment
We couldn't stop our anger if we tried

This place never was a battleground before
Howd we go from best friends to fighting and not talking anymore

As bad memories fade away
I know, we’ll remember what we had

so can we
take it all back on the rooftop one last chance to let it go
break it all down from the last words when we left this place alone
what we said and who we are
led us to this world apart
we'll take it all back on the rooftop and let it go

I'm haunted
by every word I said to you that night
there’s nothing good without you I wish I had you back into my life

If forgiveness still remains
Then we can, say all that we need to say

can you hear me
the screaming wears me out
please forgive me
cause I just can’t lose you now
I’ll do everything I can so we can say

ALL I WANT

Stand up and take a bow
Your beauty deserves a crowd
I said it once I'll say for all time, all time
No one's wanted you more oh more
and I'm trying to hold on
trying to hold on
break all the walls around you
and I'm trying to hold on
trying to hold on
'til you feel me in your arms

All I want is you
I've waited for forever to say the things that
we both know are true
All I Want is you

Your dark hair around me now
the one kiss that you allow
I hold the words until it's all right, all right
now I know what this love's about
and I'm trying to hold on, trying to hold on
'til you wrap yourself around me
and I'm trying to hold on
trying to hold on
can you feel me in your heart

All I want is you
I've waited for forever to say the things that
we both know are true
the only thing that matters is standing somehow
right in front of you
everything I do is because
all I want is you
All I Want is you

Fighting for you
always for you
say the words
A simple heart on a mighty mission
say the words

ON THE BEAT OF MY HEART

Never thought that I would fall for you
Never thought that I could see this through
never thought that I could be so proud
to say I love you out loud
now it's coming over me
this is where I want to be
and I feel so alive

on the tip of my tongue
on the beat of my heart
in the way my hands are shakin
something feels right in the air tonight
it's making me high
in the back of my mind
cause I know the words are coming
on the tip of my tongue
on the beat of my heart

anyone who knows me knows
this is never how it goes
I always run away so fast
if I think it ever could last
never thought that I would find someone
someone who could be the one
but this time I won't hide

WHAT YOU DO TO ME

I'm kinda losing it
Feels like I'm falling apart
You have a hold on me
that was there from the start
I'm giving into it
because you're all that I need
I didn't know back then but now I can see
It's like a heart attack
you stop me dead with your touch
when you pull me in
I just can't get enough
I try to push it back
to just forget who you are
but we've already gone too far

When did I start to lose all control
you are the rush that makes me believe
I'm going crazy love
I just can't get enough of what you do to me
what you do to me

That line of no return
we crossed like thieves in the night
we were a sweet romance now we're Bonnie and Clyde
this love is dangerous
but I just can't get away
because I need the pleasure and pain

All that you are all that you are baby
All that you got it's all that I need
All that you are all that you are baby
what you do to me, what you do to me

I'LL BE THE ONE

I can't believe I've messed this up And taken you for granted
I never ever wanted to
I forget just what it takes to really be in love with someone as wonderful as you
I can't take back the tears and hours
I wish that I could erase
all I need is one chance to prove I can change
so you don't have to say

I'm not the one you let go
I'm not the heart you break
I would stand by you forever
I'm not the one you're ever gonna replace oh don't throw me away

A simple life a simple love it's all you ever wanted
from the start you gave in spades
all your light so amazing
always got me going
don't know where I lost my way
I was so wrapped up in all my worries, I pushed you further away
I can't let you bury anymore pain
cause you meant it when you said

I'm not the one you let go
I'm not the heart you break
I would stand by you forever
I'm not the one you're ever gonna replace oh don't throw me away

No one has ever
Loved me this much
I gotta wake up
I will be better
To you from now on, I'm making this promise

I'll be the one to hold you
I'll be the one that stays
I'll stand by you forever
I'll be the one that's never going away

IN BETWEEN

all i needed was just your touch
to feel you falling ain't asking much
i never know which you I'll get
the one i love or a silhouette

tell me what to say now to save us
baby I can't read your mind

start pulling me in or cutting me out
cause I'm dangling from a string
start letting me in or letting me go
don't leave me in between

have we burned to embers
or is there still a spark
are we at the ending
or another start

I keep giving in just to keep you
i feel like I'm losing me

start pulling me in or cutting me out
cause I'm dangling from a string*
start letting me in or letting me go
don't leave me in between
Stop leading me on if you don't like where it leads
start letting me in or letting me go
don't leave me in between

it don't matter what I say
feel your love slippin away
I hate it hate it
it don't matter what I do
will it be enough to prove
we can get through this pain

CRY FOR YOU

A couple moments from a breakdown
A few seconds from a freak out
The world is heavy on your shoulders
Keeps trying to beat you down
You’re at the point that feels like breaking
Your heavy heart is feeling sore
You’re so tired of being angry
That you can’t take it anymore

But If you’re gonna fall let me fall for you
If you’re gonna bleed I want to feel my blood pour out for you
Don’t you ever give up baby, no matter what you do
When life tries to make you cry let me cry for you
When life tries to make you cry I wanna cry for you

Are you sick of being patient
And Tired of being scared
Do You know the feeling of reaching out to find that
It’s still not there
You’ve been scratching hard and scraping
And you’re running out of breath
searching for history in the making
Only to lose another step

Baby don’t let go
Baby don’t look back no
I’ll never t let you go
No I won’t do that

THE MEDICINE

7:30 in the morning
and the sky is turning blue
is it late or is it early?
what the hell am I to do
and I know it's gonna hurt
but it's better with you

Doctor give me the medicine
That I need to make me a better man
You see I've got this affliction
It keeps me crawling back again

All this time apart is torture
but I know will make it through
Roll the bones and cast our fortune
Play the cards as if you knew
and I know it's gonna hurt
but I'm better with you

Doctor give me the medicineThat I need to make me a better man
You see I've got this affliction
It keeps me crawling back again


DAMN I MISS YOU WHEN YOU'RE GONE

a photograph of a moment past
reaching back like a country song
a history in blues and greens
damn I miss you when you're gone

your eyes were wild
your side smile
it's been awhile
since your hair was long
we were so in love
oh but we grow up
damn I miss you when you're gone

so I sing my song
to nobody, nobody at all
just the ghosts and the cracks in the walls
with all the plans we made
when we were young in the summer shade
now all that remains
is this song
damn I miss you when you're gone

lord knows I try
to get it right
but it's hard to fight it all alone
my slipping faith
your saving grace
damn I miss you when you're gone

so I sing my song
to nobody, nobody at all
just the ghosts and the cracks in the walls
with all the plans we made
when we were young in the summer shade
now all that remains
is this song
damn I miss you when you're gone

I smell your ghost
in my winter coat
you've been known
to linger on
and in a thousand years
will I still be here
singing damn I miss you when you're gone

so I sing my song
to nobody, nobody at all
just the ghosts and the cracks in the walls
with all the plans we made
when we were young in the summer shade
now all that remains
is this song
damn I miss you when you're gone

DAMAGE CONTROL

Doors slam
Harsh words
We blame
Each other
3 days
Shut out
I can't take
This breakdown

And it's all
And it's all
And it's all in the back of my mind
All I want
All I want
All I want is to turn back time

Dare me darlin
I don't want to let go
And what we need is
A little damage control

Midnight
I call
Listen
Can we just talk

And it's all
And it's all
And it's all in the back of my mind
All I want
All I want
All I want is to turn back time

Dare me darlin
I don't want to let go
And what we need is
A little damage control
Dare me darlin
I can't do this alone
And what we need is
A little damage control

NOT ENOUGH DRUGS

How street cut revved up you got me
My messed up twisted destiny
I'm out of reasons to believe
But still I am not breaking free

And if you take me down
I don't mind
And if you burn me out
That is fine

Cause I haven't done enough drugs
I wish I could call that the reason for my love
When I told you I wanted you I wasn't fucked up
Just crazy
Cause I haven't done enough drugs to feel this way

Bad luck good lust all in time
Excess regress call you mine
Technically there's been no crime
But I'm the one who'll take the dive

And if you keep me around
I'll fall back
Your cherry lips are my relapse
Cause I haven't done enough drugs
I wish I could call that the reason for my love
When I told you I wanted you I wasn't fucked up
Just crazy
Cause I haven't done enough drugs to feel this way

You got me
The way that I feel you got me
Baby I'm going crazy
Cause I haven't done enough drugs
I wish I could call that the reason for my love
When I told you I wanted you I wasn't fucked up
Just crazy
Cause I haven't done enough drugs to feel this way

UP FOR WHATEVER 

Yea all I've wanted 
Is a chance into your light

Does it make me crazy?

That you're always on my mind
You're all I've needed
I am free when you're around
Is it yes no maybe
Cause you Know I'm down

It took ya baby to bring me all of me out
I am ready to get way too loud


Let's have a wild night out or we can just stay in

We can save the world or get lost in sin

And I come running when you say my name

I don't care I'm up for whatever

I'm always up for whatever with you 



When a crash becomes a scene

And words turn into fights
What we want and what we need

We Don't always get it right

It took ya baby to bring me all of me out

I am ready to get way too loud


Let's have a wild night out or we can just stay in

We can save the world or get lost in sin

And I come running when you say my name

I don't care I'm up for whatever

I'm always up for whatever with you 


Oh they won't they won't keep us down

we’ll set a fire to this town

Oh I know I know what I've found with you now



This could be one of our best regrets

Like a teenage drag off a cigarette

Even if this love becomes a future debt

I don't care I'm up for whatever


Let's have a wild night out or we can just stay in

We can save the world or get lost in sin

And I come running when you say my name

I don't care I'm up for whatever

I'm always up for whatever with you 

 
ALL HANDS

This is strange as hell to me
To say out loud it's happening
What a powerless weight I am feeling
Oh I'm fighting for a fate so fleeting
U can't be gone
I heard it wrong
I won't believe
U seem so sure
You're holding ground
U want to leave

Oh I need all hands
I need all hands
ain't giving up
Ain't out of love
Not going over
again
I need all hands
To pull me out alive
 

This is sad as hell to me
To watch your heart on a retreat
What a powerless rush This feeling
I am fighting for love that's reeling
U can't let go
Who is this ghost
I won't agree
Calling my friends
This is for real
Emergency

Cause I need all hands
I need all hands
ain't giving up
Ain't out of love
Not going over
again
I need all hands
To pull me out alive

All these demons
How can I resist?
Did your real love
Ever really exist

Oh I need all hands
I need all hands
ain't giving up
Ain't out of love
Not going over
again
I need all hands
To pull me out alive

LOVE ON FIRE

V1

When you come home
I’m better again
The Miles and madness go
My Love on fire
My love on fire


LAST NIGHT MY FAVORITE BAND BROKE UP

V1
Last night my favorite band broke up
They said goodbye in a rush forever
and we should forget reunions to come/at all
I guess what’s done is done and over

CH 
Oh i hope that if its done, the good won’t go
Oh i know it’s no easy road playing on

V2
Years chasing after all they want
One stretch of time goes wrong and it all fades
These days we only fight/try so hard
No one shows who they are til it’s too late

CH
Oh i hope that if its done, the good won’t go
Oh i know it’s no easy road playing on

Bridge
Didn't catch the last show
Don’t know if they cared anymore
Didn’t catch the last show
If it was their last show
I Wonder if they’ll sing on their own
If it was their last show

Last night my favorite band broke up
I’m gonna miss em so much forever
