CAN'T KEEP

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

I wanna shake
I wanna wind out
I wanna leave
This mind and shout
I've lived
All this life
Like an ocean
In disguise
I won't live forever
You can't keep
Me here

I wanna race
With the sundown
I want a last breath
That I don’t let out
Forgive
Every being
The bad feelings
It's just me
I won't wait
For answers
You can't keep
Me here

I wanna rise
And say goodnight
I Wanna take
A look on the other side
I've lived
All these lives
It's been wonder
Full tonight
I won’t live for
Ever
You can't keep
Me here

 

 

 

SLEEPING BY MYSELF

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

I should have know there was someone else
Down below I always kept things to myself
Now I believe in nothing
Not today, as I move myself out of your sight
Oh I'll be sleeping by myself tonight

I could never go to no one else
The hurt don't show but who knows, time will tell
Now I believe in nothing but the pain
And I can't see this turning out right
Oh I'll be sleeping by myself tonight

Forever be sad and lonely
Forever never be the same
Oh I close my eyes and wait for a sign
Am I just waiting in vain?

Oh I believe in love and disaster
Sometimes the two are just the same
I'm beginning to see
What's left of me is gonna have to be free to survive
I'll be sleeping by myself
I'll be sleeping by myself
I'll be sleeping by myself tonight

 

 

 

 

 

WITHOUT YOU

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

I'll grow when you grow
Let me loosen up the blindfold
I'll fly when you cry
Lift us out of this landslide
Wherever you go
Whenever we part

I'll keep on healing all the scars
That we've collected from the start
I'd rather this than live without you
For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I've dreamt about you
And from afar I lie awake
Close my eyes to find I wouldn't be the same

I'll shine when you shine
Painted pictures on my mind
Sun sets on this ocean
Never once on my devotion
However you are
Or far that you fall

I'll keep on healing all the scars
That we've collected from the start
I'd rather this than live without you
For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I've dreamt about you
And from afar I lie awake
Close my eyes to find I'd never be the same
Without you, without you

 


 

MORE THAN YOU KNOW

Lyrics/Music: Billy Rose, Edward Eliscu, Vincent Youmans

More than you know, more than you know
Lately I find you're on my mind
More than you know
Whether I'm right, whether I'm wrong
I need you so
More than you know, more than you know

Loving you the way that I do
There's nothing I can do about it
And a little bit of love that I get
May be all that you can give
But I can't live without it

Oh how I'd cry, oh how I'd cry
If you got tired and said "Goodbye"
More than I'd show
More than you'd ever, ever know
More than you know
More than you'd ever, ever know
More than you know

 

 

 

GOODBYE

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

I've got our love to remember
That will never change
I have you in my head
And though I'll never hold you
And I'm still asking why
I guess that this is goodbye

My dreams suddenly seem so empty
I could go it on my own
Though I feel like playing dead
And for what feels like the first time
I don't know where you are tonight
I guess that this is goodbye

We lived half our lives together
Cloud full of tears
It’s a lot of weight to bear
And the sun it may be shining
But there's an ocean in my eyes
'Cause I know that this is goodbye
I know that this... is goodbye

 


 

BROKEN HEART

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

Don't mind me, just let me be
My eyes so far away
I don't need no sympathy
The word gets overplayed

I'm alright, it's just tonight
I can't play the part
I'm alright, it's alright
It's just a broken heart

Don't have eyes for the world outside
They're closed and turned within
Trying to find the light inside
It's there, yet growing dim

I'm alright, it's just tonight
I can't play the part
I'm alright, it's alright
It's just one broken heart

 

 

 

SATELLITE

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

It's no shame that
Love's a game that
I can only play with you
What I'm saying
Is I'm here waiting for you

I've seen the light
I'm satisfied that
The brightest star is you
Satellite I'm holding tight
Beaming back to you

Days turn into
Nights turn into
Days turn into today
Don't think I'm out playing
'Cause I'm inside waiting for you

I felt the light
I'm satisfied that
The highest high is you
Satellite I'm holding tight
Beaming back to you

And don't you worry
I believe your story
You were put away
For something you didn't do
While I'm waiting
I've been saving my love

 

 

LONGING TO BELONG

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

I'm falling harder than I've
Ever fell before
I'm falling fast while hoping
I'll land in your arms
'Cause all my time is spent here
Longing to belong
To you

I dream of circles perfect
Eyes within your face
My heart's an open wound that
Only you'd replace
And though the moon is rising
Can't put your picture down
Love can be frightening when you fall

And when the time is right
I hope that you'll respond
Like when the wind gets tired
The ocean becomes calm
I may be dreaming but I'm
Longing to belong
To you

 

 

 

 

YOU'RE TRUE

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

Lonely cliffs and waterfalls
If no one sees me I'm not here at all
You could be the one to liberate me from the sun
So please, give the moon to me
I'd be indebted to ya
Walk the dog and pay rent to ya
If you say the word, I'm yours
Unsure

Nothing ever goes my way
But with you here that all may have changed
Suddenly I'm a new born child
And I'm ready to live a while with you
There's so much left to do
And so I thank you dearly
For letting me see clearly
Open up, she said
Be you, be true

Now I'm at home in my own skin
I'm like an ocean whose tides come in
Yes you could be the one to hold my hand
Beneath the full moon
You could be the one
You're true, you're true
You're true, you're true
You're true...

 

 

 

LIGHT TODAY

Lyrics/Music: Vedder

I saw the light today
I saw the light today
I saw the light today
I saw the light today

Silence's louder when so long
The quiet building in the dark
Surrender to the game
I saw the light today

The silence screams that we're apart
I dare to dream for there you are
I bleed but I won't break

I saw the light today
I saw the light today
I saw the light today
Today, today...

 

 

 

 

 

SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

Lyrics/Music: Felice Bryant, Boudleaux Bryant (feat. Glen Hansard)

Through the sleepless nights I cry for you
And wonder who is kissing you
These sleepless nights will break my heart in two

Somehow through the days I don't give in
I hide the tears that wait within
But then through sleepless nights I cry again

Why did you go? Why did you go?
Don't you know? Don't you know?
I need you

I keep hoping you'll come back to me
Oh let it be, please let it be
My love, please end these sleepless nights for me

Why did you go? Why did you go?
Don't you know? Don't you know?
I need you

I keep hoping you'll come back to me
Oh let it be, please let it be
My love, please end these sleepless nights for me
My love, please end these sleepless nights for me

 

 

 

ONCE IN A WHILE

Lyrics/Music: Bud Green, Michael Edwards

Once in a while
Will you try to give one little thought to me?
Though someone else may be nearer to your heart

Will you dream of the moments I shared with you
Before we drifted apart
Once in a while?

In love's smoldering embers
One spark may remain
If love still can remember
The spark may burn again

I know that I'll be contented with yesterday's memory
Knowing you think of me
Once in a while

 

 

 

 

TONIGHT YOU BELONG TO ME

Lyrics/Music: Billy Rose, Lee David (feat. Cat Power)

I know you belong to somebody new
But tonight you belong to me

Although we're apart
You're a part of my heart
But tonight you belong to me

Way down by the stream
How sweet it would seem
Once more just to dream in the moonlight

My honey I know
With the dawn that you will be gone
But tonight you belong to me
But tonight you belong to me

 

 

 

 

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME

Lyrics/Music: Fabian Andre, Gus Khan, Wilbur Schwandt

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "I love you"
Birds singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

Say nightie night and kiss me
Hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me
'Cause I'm alone as blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on
Oh, craving your kiss
I'm longing to linger till dawn
Just saying this oh...

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me
