Know you can count on me
Know you can count on me
Know you can count on me
To get so up for it

Know you can count on me
I'll be so up for it
Know at least I'll try

Who are you if you're not up for it
Where are you if I'm not up for it

Want to put a bubble round you
Like a force field switch
Keep you secure just a little bit

But I know a secret child is just a silly trick
Who grows up to lose that force field switch

In between a hands on and a hands off apprenticeship
Where are you if I'm not up for it
I'll wake up for it

Know you can count on me
Know you can count on me
Know you can count on me
To get so up for it

Know you can count on me
I'll be so up for it
Know at least I'll try

. . .


Take my life
What's my life like?
What's my work like?
How do I pass time?

Open my eyes so I might see mine
So I'll be with mine
No matter what it takes
Take my life so high
Keep my life light

. . .


So they say practice makes you perfect
So they say you can't teach an old dog
So they say have an apple a day
So they say better safe than sorry

Everyone knows what they always say

And when I slow it down
It's clear just how
It's what they don't say
That's what counts

Deep down (what counts)
Step up, step off

So they say practice makes you perfect
So they say you can't teach an old dog
So they say have an apple a day
So they say better safe than sorry

Everyone knows what they always say

And when I slow it down
It's clear just how
It's what they don't say
That's what counts

It's counting
And be sure it counts

. . .


When there are hard times I'll step it up
When there are dangerous times I'll spot them up
I'll take my time to make up my own mind
To set it up when the times are calling for a steady creed

How do I know it's time?
Even if I've got mine
'Cause if the wise do know what wisdom is
If I could err on every good side every time

Out on the water
A rider can ready
Though waves comes crashing
A good board can steady
I wouldn't ever want to bet upon the balance on what's going on
Would I?

Stay
What's in my way?
Got to have it to get over it

To have an empty fortune when I fear
To have a deadly weapon, as it's called
Which is an answer to a challenge made by anything
Then to always know just what things violence needs

How do I know its time?
Even if I got mine
'Cause if the wise do know what wisdom is
If I could err on every good side every time

Out on the water
A rider can ready
Though waves comes crashing
A good board can steady
I wouldn't ever want to bet upon the balance on what's going on
Would I?

Why wouldn't I?

-Last night at the jetty-

Dreams that we once had. Did we have them anyway?
Seems that we once had. Now we'll have them all the time.

Didn't we--
Didn't we--
Didn't we have a good time?

I know we--
I know we--
I know we had a real time.

Now, who could say we're not just as we were?
No one could deny my mind.

I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know

I don't want to describe something that I'm not.
I don't want to hide the thoughts that I have.


I want to enjoy what's meant to enjoy.
I tried to ??? the search to employ.

Say what you whish, and I don't really ????

I know I could not go. Even if I ???


You have your ways. I have my ways. We have our ways.
And I´ll call you my friend
And I´ll call you my friend
And I´ll call you my friend
And I´ll call you my friend

And I´ll call you my--
Dreamed that I once had. Did I have it anyway?
Seems that I once had. Now I´ll have it all the time.

Didn't I--
Didn't I--
Didn´t I have a good time?

I know I--
I know I--
I know I had a real time

Now, who could say I'm not just as I was.
No one could deny my mind.

. . .


Now I see you again
Now I feel you again
Now I know you again

. . .


Only feel a chill whenever I come out from my shell
I'd surely lie if I said that I was sure that it might work out

Now, I won't let it slide
No, I wont let it slip up

Found a way and I feel like I shouldn't let go
Drop a bomb on the spots where my doubt streams grow
What to do when the things that I want don't allow
For the handful of mouths that I'm trying to feed

Got to do what you've got to do

What weighs on my mind
So I cant get sleep at night

Say, can I make a bad mistake?
Say what it is I want to say
Say what?

. . .


I see it up ahead
I've seen it all behind
I see it at the sides
Though I've no point to try

But if I could do
Then what I would do to you

I see it in the day
I see it in the night
I see it all the time
Though I might not desire

But if I could do
Then what I would do to you

. . .


I always thought that I'd move further from
Further and further and further and even further from
The very people closest to me
I see these in daydreams

And like so many other things
It happened
Slowly happened
And without notice I've become someone who's out of reach
I'm as much to blame

But I don't want to sound as though I'm wishing
Always wanting
Always hoping
I had not made the choices I have made
Because what's in that?
One is gained
One lost

And still to say I've made grave mistakes
And every upon every upon every
I think about and hope it's all worked out to either end
What acts
What cost

Cannot be destroyed with a friend's ring at the side
Don't break ties that hold them round the ring

Don't break

. . .


I'm not down to keep up
Trying to keep up
One slip up
Up on our way
I'm so tired of taking
Of taking it
One slip up
Up on our way

I don't buy it
I say
So leave it alone

So it moves forwards
I'll always ask
What's the point of making?
The makings are our only hope
It's not late
It's not too late
To keep it real
You ask me to keep it real

. . .


Some might say that
To win's not all that it's about
It's just not something to say
But there is nothing more true
Or natural than wanting to win

There's nothing more to life
Nothing more to life
