Full EP Lyrics - Better Life


Keep Me From Falling 

Korbee/Korbee/McGorman/Vallier

Been trying on places waiting for the streets to speak to me

I get lost in the faces searching for the things that I can't see

It's too hard to hold, the surface is cold

Hanging on with every step I take

I feel it shifting, the fog is lifting 

Revealing the one thing that won't break

 

I don't really care if we got this right, I know you're the only one I need tonight

Just promise you'll keep me from falling

The little white lies don't get to me, this ain't gonna end in tragedy

Just promise you'll keep me from falling

Oh Oh Oh

 

Streaming through wires sending out a prayer for you tonight

My radio flyer, pick you up and leave all this behind

Will we ever learn bridges will burn, throw me out a lifeline just in time

I feel it shifting, the fog is lifting, baby we can survive, keep this alive

 

I don't really care if we got this right, I know you're the only one I need tonight

Just promise you'll keep me from falling

The little white lies don't get to me, this ain't gonna end in tragedy

Just promise you'll keep me from falling

 

I don't really care if we got this right, I know you're the only one I need tonight

The little white lies don't get to me, this ain't gonna end in tragedy

It doesn't matter how you speak to me, from a soapbox or a symphony

Just promise you'll keep me from falling

From the empire to the golden gate Romeo and Juliet don't got this fate

Just promise you'll keep me from falling

Oh Oh Oh

Oh Oh Oh

Oh Oh Oh  

Just promise you'll keep me from falling


Better Life

Korbee/Korbee

I keep looking at these walls waiting for a change

Something to turn it around and take away the pain

I wanna see through the smoke and mirrors that are keeping me up at night

I wanna make good on what I promised and look you in the eye

 

Gonna find a way, gonna make it right

We're gonna build us a better life

If it takes every day and it lasts all night

We're gonna build us a better life

 

For every moment that I waited,

I wasted so much more

What if I never hesitated, would it be different than before

Every smile, every breath, every tear that I cried

Just another little sacrifice, I need you by my side

 

Gonna find a way, gonna make it right

We're gonna build us a better life

If it takes every day and it lasts all night

We're gonna build us a better life

 

IIf the sky falls down and the earth breaks free

We'll start again just you and me

We've come too far to turn around now

 

Gonna find a way, gonna make it right

 

What builds the wall ain't the stone 

It's how we make it our own

Without giving in or letting go this time

For every shot in the dark

We'll find a light from the spark

That ignites and build us a better life

 

 

Gonna find a way, gonna make it right

We're gonna build us a better life

If it takes every day and it lasts all night

We're gonna build us a better life

Gonna find a way, gonna make it right

We're gonna build us a better life

If it takes every day and it lasts all night

We're gonna build us a better life


Fall Down

Korbee/Korbee/McGorman/Vallier

How will you ever know when you reach the top

And when you get there will you know when to stop

If we never took a step, we'd never learn to walk

If we never took a breath, we'd never learn to talk

 

Oh, Oh - we all fall down, Oh, Oh - we all fall down

 

Have you ever been in love with one of your friends

But you didn't say a word 'cause you didn't want it to end

Have you ever slept outside underneath the stars

Come to realize just how small you are

 

And every time you look at me that way

I can never find the words that I could say, and I fall

 

Oh, Oh - we all fall down

Oh, Oh - the king's uncrowned

What goes around comes around when you least expect it, the castle's unprotected

Oh, Oh - we all fall down

 

Heavenly eyes in disguise watching over us

Walls made of stone, tear them down, pillars turn to dust

 

Oh - Oh

If we never took a step, then we'd never learn to walk

If we never took a breath, then we'd never learn to talk

If I never turned away, maybe you'd see me fall, maybe you'd see me fall

Maybe I'd let you see me

 

Oh, Oh - we all fall down

Oh, Oh - the king's uncrowned

What goes around comes around when you least expect it, the castle's unprotected

Oh, Oh - we all fall down


Something's Gotta Give

Korbee/Korbee/McGorman/Vallier

Turn the time back, start it all from black

Slowly open your eyes to see what you've done to me

All you had to say all along, I was wrong

 

Something's gotta give, everything gets broken, words unspoken

How are we gonna take the first step to a second chance

Memories of what we had

 

Turn this ship around, stop before we drown

All of your promises all were lost, at what cost

 

Something's gotta give, everything gets broken, words unspoken

How are we gonna take the first step to a second chance

Memories of what we had

 

Give me a little bit, sign of a surrender

Baby we can work it out

 

Something's gotta give, everything gets broken, words unspoken

How are we gonna take the first step to a second chance

Memories of what we had

Something's gotta give, everything gets broken, words unspoken

How are we gonna take the first step to a second chance

Memories of what we had


The Tide

Korbee/Korbee/McGorman/Vallier

What if I was a fish in the ocean, I would never have to touch the ground

What if I was a bird on a wire, you could never make me come back down

What if I was an island and the ruler of all my shores

Don't be afraid if you find out there's something more

 

I wanna take this house and give it away, give it away

I wanna take this car and drive

I'm gonna shake these worries and throw 'em away, throw 'em away

Takin' my chances, floatin' out with the tide

 

What if I was a microphone, everybody would sing to me

What if I was a rolling stone, you could follow me endlessly

What if we had the answers, would we heed our own advice

Lose all of the excess just in time

 

I wanna take this house and give it away, give it away

I wanna take this car and drive

I'm gonna shake these worries and throw 'em away, throw 'em away

Takin' my chances, floatin' out with the tide

 

It's just a state of mind, it's something undefined it's all so simple

Now that I realize it's time to cut the ties and let go

 

I wanna take this house and give it away

I wanna take this car and drive

I'm gonna shake these worries and throw 'em away, throw 'em away

Takin' my chances, takin' my chances

I wanna take this heart and give it away, give it away

I wanna leave these cares behind

Speak my mind, I won't waste time, won't care what they say, care what they say

Takin' my chances, floating out with the tide
