Crossing Over The Line

Words and Music by Brad Cole, 2005

I’m working on a problem; perhaps it’s working me.
All my logical decisions, they're too quickly failing me.

And it comes, rushing over me. It's better than anything, and I’m gone…

The road is flagged with caution, and I’m painting over signs.
Yeah I fight myself and I’m loosing the battle inside.

I’m taken by your laughter, and I'm circled in your shine
Fallen into your curbside grace while you trespass through my mind

And it comes, rushing over me. It's better than anything, and I’m gone…

All my walls are coming down, and I’m crossing over the line.
There’ll be no looking back this time.

Sweet dreams in my darkest night, but the morning always comes down hard on me…
you know I’m crossing over the line.

Smoke ascends around me, from my future and my past
As I melt into the moment, cause nothing here can last.

And it comes, like a hurricane, blowing me away again,
And I’m gone…

All my walls are coming down,
You know I’m crossing over the line.
There'll be no looking back this time.

Sweet dreams in my darkest night,
but the morning always comes down hard on me…
you know I’m crossing over the line.

…Smoke ascends around me, it’s better than anything, and I’m gone...

Come Home

Words and Music by Brad Cole

You can’t answer me, I’m somewhere over the sea,
I'm feeling weary and alone.
There’s a war ragin’ on, but my battle is over and done.
They set me up and they knocked me down.

I won’t run, and I can’t hide.
I want to come home to you tonight, lay my body down
And help me find some love for this empty heart,
Help me find peace when I fall apart,
And never let this river carry me so far away again.

All I carry on my back, there's some good but mostly it’s bad,
They tattooed me and they cracked my sunny sky.
I made promises I couldn’t keep, and false words that burn so deep
Sent me tumblin’ down this long dark road.

I won’t run, and I can’t hide.
I want to come home to you tonight, lay my body down,
And help me find some love for this empty heart,
Help me find peace when I fall apart,
And never let this river carry me so far away again. 'Cause it’s about love little baby. Thw sweetest sound that's calling me back again
Over mountains of pain, through rivers of tears, I’m coming home

There's no angels at my side, guess I've never prayed just right,
This one’s goin’ out on the radio.
I’m not the kind to set my pride aside, but can you save a little love tonight,
I'll find my way back home to you.

I won’t run, and I can’t hide.
I want to come home to you tonight, lay my body down
And help me find love for this empty heart,
Help me find some peace when I fall apart,
And never let this river carry me so far away again.

'Cause it's about love baby, the sweetest sound that's callin' me back again.
Home...I'm comin home.

A Million Miles Away

Words and Music by Brad Cole

Walk through these streets they're, full of people who
Save their smiles for the ones who love them.
I've kissed your smile but could not hold on
Turned away from you, and I'm invisible again

I'm on the other side of the world, drowning all of my yesterdays
When I thought I had it all, I was a million miles away

There’s a cafe where strangers weep as they
Sing of hope in a loveless world, but then
Find a way to smile, laugh the night away
Lost in Paris I, think I've found you again

I'm just outside of town; I don’t know what I'll say
When I thought I had it all, I was a million miles away

I've fallen in between the drama of your mystery
And the truth behind this broken down reality
But if I don't go I might never know

In the shadow of my distraction
I'm called by memories of love and tenderness
Drop my pretense my stupid nonchalance
Drag my shredded soul inside from the cold.

Now I'm bangin on your door, this time I gotta stay
Are you there or have you gone...
A million miles away

A Leg to Stand On

Words & Music by Brad Cole

I've been headed down a darkened road ruled by ego and excess 
I am blinded by the hurricane I've become
And I walked my way through empty days till you showed me how to give it away,
And now my demon's on the run.

To the top of the world, and leave my dark days far behind

Oh, I’m starting over again
All I needed was a leg to stand upon
And you’ve given me back my heart my friend

In my aimless flight I found my life on the other side of the world
Saw the struggle and pain through a young Siddhartha’s eyes
And thought I was free till you made me see
"It's not what you get, but what you give", like golden wings to fly,


 To the top of the world, and leave my dark days far behind.

Oh, like starting over again
All I needed was a leg to stand up on
And you gave me back my heart my friend

In all that I’ve collected, tell me what more do I need?
Another ornamental elation, while half the world is bleeding?
Someone's out there praying for you but its so hard letting go
They say a rich man's heart is a ghetto
Well I see fountains flowing gold. 


We get bruised and battered, and some get shattered by a world grown numb to the pain.
Do you stand and fight or close your eyes to hide?
When your rainbow flies don't be surprised, there's an army by your side, to follow you as you run.

To the top of the world, and leave the dark days far behind.
