    Silver

    Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney 2/2018

     

    Ambition, desire or wishing well. Just don’t fall in.

    The embers are still orange but there’s a breeze. Don’t let them meet.

     

    The tables are turning.

    The roots left the seed and dug so deep.

     

    I’ve stayed away, but now I’m here.

    I’m not sure for how long.

    I’ve found my meaning and it’s right here.

    It’s lined with silver.

    It’s framed in silver.

     

    The quiet but large lake lay there stagnant and motionless.

    Awaiting a current to come alive. Just throw a stone in.

     

    I’ve stayed away, but now I’m here.

    1 -Journey to MeMusic & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    Set sail at noon today. Bon voyage; travel safe. The luggage is packed and tight. The destinations nowhere in sight. An obstacle awaits; It won’t matter, it’s all the same. The waterfall is near and I’m ready for the ride, bring it on.  I’m falling, I’m falling. This journeys near the end. The checkered flags about to be waved. I’m forestalling my calling. I’m full of compassion, yet I’m trying to realize who I am. I’m underwater staring up. I see the path that lead me here and I smirk. I try to comprehend the manifest given despite nothing looks real; something’s surreal. The anchor pulls me up. This journey lead me back to myself. I’m falling, I’m falling. This journeys near the end. The checkered flags about to be waved. I’m forestalling my calling. I’m full of compassion, yet I’m trying to realize who I am. Who am I? A part of me is stored away. Deep inside of me there’s electricity. Deep inside there something that makes me complete. I’m calling out for you, I’m calling out for you. I’m falling, I’m falling. This journeys near the end. The checkered flags about to be waved. I’m forestalling my calling. I’m full of compassion, yet I’m trying to realize who I am. Who am I?

  • 03:14 Lyrics Something Wrong with Me

    Something Wrong with MeMusic & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    There is no easy way around this. This injection alters the pain. I am prone to implode and I’m ready to blow. My brain’s in a maze and will it find its way out? Is there something wrong with me? There must be something wrong with me cause I can’t breathe. Is there something wrong with me? There’s something wrong with me tonight. Flashing cursors burn in my eyes. Now weeks are turning to days. Wasting away, weak and drained. I’m diluted and dazed. I’m alive by instinct, waiting for that major crash. Is there something wrong with me? There must be something wrong with me cause I can’t breathe. Is there something wrong with me? There’s something wrong with me tonight. There’s something deep inside me controlling the way I see my life. Exchange this blurry imagination for something lucid! Hazy visions lead to disarray. It’s time for me to break the mould and treat my brain. I can’t breathe. Is there something wrong with me? There’s something wrong with me tonight.

    In Fact, This is Love – Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    Oh Love, this is love. The real love. In fact, this is love I’m told. I’m running out of fingers to count. And I’ll I need is a guitar in hand and Jack is sitting beside me watching me write. Sitting, laughing, fire’s glowing. Sounds of joy coming and going, yeah. I’m sitting here with a dazed smile on and yesterday is still lying all over the floor. Oh Love, this is love. The real love. You say I’m blessed but that’s not a word that measures truly the weight. I’m still in search of a word or a trace. I’m forever in dept, on my knee with a sword. Sitting, laughing, fire’s glowing. Sounds of joy coming and going, yeah. I’m sitting here with a dazed smile on and yesterday is still lying all over the floor. Oh Love, this is love. The real love. Marching, shield’s high. Chin up in the sky. Tears erupt like volcanos on Kona Island. Jasmine blooming, so I run and pick one root and all and swallow it inside me. Oh Love, this is love. The real love. It’s more than a feeling that I have. It’s more like a healing from within. It’s a golden road and I’m cruising with you. In fact, this is love I’m told. I’m running out of fingers to count. And I’ll I need is a guitar in hand and they’re all sitting beside me.

  • 03:37 Lyrics Vanish

    Vanish Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    Once in time there were classy things to say. Once in time there were apples forbidden. That was then, and I just can’t give in. Once in time we put others first in line. Once in time we were able to forgive. That was then, and I just can’t prepare. Life, love, give or change, want, win. Take the arrow before the arrow impales me. Come on Jordan, does the picture fit the frame and if it doesn’t should I bend the corners in? If it’s black, then I just won’t be gray. Life, love, give or change, want, win. Take the arrow before the arrow impales me. I want to vanish away. Is it possible to be the weight beneath the sun? I want to vanish away. The haze is nearly almost covering us all. Life, love, give or change, want, win. Take the arrow before the arrow impales me.

  • 03:52 Lyrics Falling Deeper

    Falling Deeper Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    I’m all settled in. I’ve been here for a while. The leaves are now orange and time won’t stop. It seems like they’re orange for only a day. This cycle’s enflamed, wish I could pause this time in my life, it’s surreal and moving fast. God, help me be strong, to seal this emotion in. I’m falling deeper in their eyes. I’m lost for words. This place in my life solely feels like heaven. I’m just falling deeper in, in their eyes. The dust settles in and memories are framed. But it’s the ones in my mind that capture the true emotion that bleeds. The beauty and joy are sealed right in. This time in my life, it’s surreal and moving fast. God, help me be strong, to seal this emotion in. I’m falling deeper in their eyes. I’m lost for words. This place in my life solely feels like heaven. I’m just falling deeper in, in their eyes.

  • 03:11 Lyrics Regal

    Regal Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    You infected me with something good. Sounds twisted, but I’ve come to rest and all that’s left is served on twenty-four karat gold charger plates. I’m dining with your majesty, and please don’t take this plate away. Even though I’ve dropped the salt again. Don’t take away. Even though I’m wearing denim jeans. You, with that sparkling blue dress. You don’t even need the sparkle on. Your green eyes will light the room and carry through the entire restaurant. I’m dreaming and not waking up. Pardon your grace, I’m just not quite sane enough. Something tells me that I’m never waking up. I’m dining with your majesty, and please don’t take this plate away. What have I done to deserve this royal treatment placed before me? All my life I’ve hoped but never thought I might be worthy of her. There are trumpets playing as I walk out hand in hand. The crowd is cheering as I take my bow and greet them with a wave. I’m dining with your majesty, and please don’t take this plate away. Even though I’ve dropped the salt again. Don’t take away. Even though I’m wearing denim jeans.

  • 03:23 Lyrics August Ends June Begins

    August Ends June Begins Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    Three thousand miles away, California to Maine; and to think in time one day I’d meet you. Who turned the battery causing electricity? Well, it brought you here to me. A bird flew directly into me. I’m stunned and quite dizzy, but the arrow never lies. Love, you intrigue me. There’s no weight beneath me. You just complete me, yeah. I must be dreaming and I’m Adam your Eve and it’s only you and me. In June another bird came and hit me in the head and as soon as I could see, I met you. I hold you in my arms. A love so strong and bold. How’s this happening to me? Love, you intrigue me. There’s no weight beneath me. You just complete me, yeah. I’ll watch you dreaming so innocently. Please, just don’t leave me yet. Dear Father, I need you to give me strength to guide and lead them. More blessings and angels. My heart’s about to explode into many pieces. Love, you intrigue me. There’s no weight beneath me. You just complete me, yeah. Some nights I’m dreaming but I’m not sleeping. I lay awake in glee.

  • 04:04 Lyrics All My Life (feat. Allen Herme)

    All my Life Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    All my life I’ve waited for you. It’s funny how you look at life as a kid, you have no clue. I used to sit alone in my room and think about my future and honestly if I were to think I’d be here now, you’d have to slap me to wake me up. All my life I’ve waited for you. Each and every one of you make me better than I was before. Holding you in my arms for the first time I can’t breathe because you take away the air in my lungs and time stands still. A ray of light beams on you. I kiss your head and close my eyes. All my life I’ve waited for you. There's so many stars up there and this one fell into my hands. And there's one there for you and one day will it hit you too? Stars hitting me left and right. God help me never lose sight. A life full of devotion that spills out this emotion. 

  • 03:43 Lyrics 33 Years (feat. Richard Galiguis)

    33 Years Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    I’m thirty-three years now. The fire’s glowing extra bright. I’m thirty-three years down now I’m alive. The paper says I’m fine. The inner Me’s intensified. I’m drowning in a 9-year-old river, yeah. I’m turning in my bed, I’m restless thinking of it all. I’m sure it’s only half of my current rate. The pace is moving fast. The music is in minor C. I’m pacing in a sweat, but I’m energized. I’m calling for you more than ever. I need your guidance now! I’m falling in a cluttered world I need a spike to hammer it. It’s been thirty-three years since I’ve had a decent night of sleep. Since the day I was born I’ve been this way. I don’t know which direction to go. My purpose is leading me here. It’s leading the way. I’m calling for you more than ever. I need your guidance now! I’m falling in a cluttered world I need a spike to hammer it. The dying rose and owl and the black rose are fading. The butterflies upon my chest are why I live each day. You’re why I’m here today and I won’t change a single thing, truly. I’m calling for you more than ever. I need your guidance now! I’m falling in a cluttered world I need a spike to hammer it. The dying rose and owl and the black rose are fading. The butterflies upon my chest are why I live each day.

  • 04:13 Lyrics Dead Roses (feat. Yul Vianzon)

    Dead Roses Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    I see another dead rose find the floor. This one stung more than the one before. A chance to me is just a passing time. Our ignorance has formed an unattractive mind. Weeds grow thorns, but dead roses bleed way more. My knees on the floor. Believe me, I want way more. You pull a weed and think it’s gone for good. The way you look at me misunderstood.  “And I know, and I know, and I know, and I know.” It’s all I ever say anymore. Weeds grow thorns, but dead roses bleed way more. My knees on the floor. Believe me, I want way more. Silence, frustration. These words lead to separation. Why can’t they just avoid me! Everywhere I look there’s roses. I’m tired of not seeing through them. The thorn will carve its name in me and I don’t understand how it wrapped around my arm. This vicious cycle’s running on empty. Weeds grow thorns, but dead roses bleed way more. My knees on the floor. Believe me, I want way more. I’m trying my best to repair.  I’m defying all I know to see this through. I’m crystalizing all alone. Please help me understand why I’m alone? The mirror’s showing wear and tear. This isn’t what I wanted for myself. I’m bleeding from within with you. If I can bleed with you, I guess I’m fine. Why can’t we just see eye to eye? I’m praying that I’ll find my way back home.

  • 03:46 Lyrics Leaves

    Leaves Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney

    It’s me, I’m alone under this tree watching the leaves as they fall onto me. I’m aware of this diamond solitaire and I’m aware of luck and maybe that’s me. Inside the ground is where it all started but leaves will fall off one day, but you know it’s ok cause they’ll grow back again. It’s me, I’m falling apart this dying tree. I’m dead and diseased and they’re walking on me. Sour grapes or under ripe oranges. The bitterness will convert to rot if not picked. Inside my soul, I’m fine but I’m scattered. Just taking some time to put this puzzle in place. It will be completed one day. It’s me, I’m lying here next to seven leaves. I look to my right and smile at them.

    Deep Traps       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (October 2007)

     

    I’m sitting in a chair forcing to write. I’m looking out the window on my side at all the beauty and I don’t care because I feel it inside. Sharp pieces of glass sticking out of my side. I swear it feels like that. “Please, never again!” I always say and pretend it’s okay and realize nothing is going to change.

     

    I fall in deep traps for no reason. I try not to cry, and I won’t give in, yet I never win. I’m always stuck with pain.

     

    I’m lying on the grass looking at stars. I turn and see a spider on my arm and I do not even want to care.

    Look at me. I’m going in circles. You can’t stop me. I’m spinning in circles. I cannot breathe.

     

    I fall in deep traps for no reason. I try not to cry, and I won’t give in, yet I never win. I’m always stuck with pain.

  • 03:01 Lyrics An Eagle's Claw

    An Eagle’s Claw       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (January 2007)

     

    If you take away my heart, seems crazy, but I’ll live my life the same.

    I don’t need a valve to pump and maybe I won’t have to live today.

    And it seems like pride’s always the answer. To me pride’s so far away. And I breathe for love, so I’ll breathe faster. It doesn’t have to be this way.

     

    How can I say that I’m a mess to you tonight?

    How can I say I feel alive and yet I’ve died?

    I’ve seen the worst and yet I’m happier. My pride’s alone.

    How can I say that love’s illusions caught my eye?

     

    Oh it’s hard to live a life so mellow when you have a knife within.

    It’s an operation drenched with trouble. It’s a poison in my skin.

    This procedure’s taking oh so long to remove what’s in my rib cage and my head is spinning off. My mind’s soon going to be erased today. It doesn’t have to be this way.

     

    How can I say that I’m a mess to you tonight?

    How can I say I feel alive and yet I’ve died?

    I’ve seen the worst and yet I’m happier. My pride’s alone.

    How can I say that love’s illusions caught my eye?

     

    I need a life! I need some time! My body’s grieving; "I need you!” My body’s right, I’m crazy. I’m going insane because I need you.

     

    How can I say that I’m a mess to you tonight?

    How can I say I feel alive and yet I’ve died?

    I’ve seen the worst and yet I’m happier. My pride’s alone.

    How can I say that love’s illusions caught my eye?

  • 02:49 Lyrics Sideways

    Sideways                 Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (November 2007)

     

    I’m here with you our feet are crossed.

    My brain is on, my thoughts are wild.

    Your hair is in my view as I lay here with you sideways.

     

    I’m thinking of my days back home when mom would sing her “we belong.”

    My thoughts are all but new as I lay here with you sideways.

     

    When I’m with you I understand me.

    You’re lovely can’t you see?

     

    Remembering my happy days, like Sydney’s birth, my wedding day.

    I’ll stay afloat with you, if you float with me too.

     

    When I’m with you I understand me.

    You’re lovely can’t you see?

     

    My mind’s awake, the water’s cold, but I will keep on diving.

    On and on I’m staring at these words my mind keeps writing and writing. My mind’s a book, and out it comes in song.

    I’m so alive when I’m with you and we’re together on our path arriving.

     

    When I’m with you I understand me.

    You’re lovely can’t you see?

     

    I’m thinking of my days back home when mom would sing her “we belong.”

    My thoughts are all but new as I lay here with you sideways.

    I’m On Fire      Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (October 2007)

     

    Please don’t follow me when I walk around. I’m dangerous. I’ll curse your ground.

     

    But I know I can’t run away,

    Even though I’m a walking flame.

    Everything is like a big charade.

    I’m on fire but I know I’ll generate.

     

    Then I’ll find some snow and I’ll find your face.

    I’ll burn your lips. You can turn an old weed to a rose.

     

    But I know I can’t run away,

    Even though I’m a walking flame.

    Everything is like a big charade.

    I’m on fire but I know I’ll generate.

     

    But I know I can’t run away,

    Even though I’m a walking flame.

    Everything is like a big charade.

    I’m on fire but I know I’ll generate back to my form.

    Blue Tree      Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (October 2007)

     

    Give me a reason. Give me some answers.

    What’s a side effect? I can’t write any faster.

     

    I’m stuck barely breathing, my hearts beating faster.

    I feel like the blue tree on my shirt.

     

    I’m down in a river. It’s okay cause it’s shallow.

    I can’t stand medication; it’s making me black out!

     

    Oh, I’m stuck in this coma. I’m so out of place.

    I feel like the blue tree on my shirt.

     

    I feel like I’m ending. I’m so powerless.

    I feel like that blue tree on my shirt.

     

    I’m okay. I have everything else that I have ever wanted.

    Yet I have more. With life I scored. Love is an eight, I scored a ten.

  • 03:21 Lyrics In The Clouds

    In The Clouds       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (June 2007)

     

    Is there anybody out there? Can anybody see?

    My hands are full of rocks and does anybody care that I am throwing them.

    They’re skidding on the water. They are sinking in the sea.

    I’ve fallen in a day thought. I’m lying on the sand and I am gliding high into that sunlit sky.

     

    I know you are in the clouds, and you know there’s a spot for me.

    Even if you’ve fallen down, you know that I’ll fall with you.

    You know that I’ll grab your hand and you know that you’re loved.

     

    Can anybody feel me? I’m full of emotion.

    I’m sinking in the sand here as I sleep away my thoughts and I am hunting down that pleasing sound.

     

    I know you are in the clouds, and you know there’s a spot for me.

    Even if you’ve fallen down, you know that I’ll fall with you.

    You know that I’ll grab your hand and you know that you’re loved.

     

    I believe I’ve woken and I’m still in love.

     

    I know you are in the clouds, and you know there’s a spot for me.

    Even if you’ve fallen down, you know that I’ll fall with you.

    You know that I’ll grab your hand and you know that you’re loved.

     

    Can anybody feel me? I’m full of emotion.

    Every Second     Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (January 2008) 

     

    I’m singing a lot. It’s something you’ve taught me.

    I cry all the time. You’ve taught me that one too.

    I’m driving to work; I look at the mountains separating us.

    You’re close but yet so far.

     

    You’re always on my mind. I’m restless constantly.

    I miss you every second of the day.

     

    When you come down you smile when I see you.

    Rain falls from your eyes. Esteem is in mine.

    We hug, and we feel the power in our bones.

    I just think of the sound of the rain. The sound of the rain

     

    You’re always on my mind.

    I’m restless constantly.

    I miss you every second of the day.

  • 02:24 Lyrics Lost

    Lost     by Jordan Sweeney 12/24/07

     

    I set foot walking, I needed a path. I’ll find the quickest way out of the mess. The signs I saw they said, “Jordan you’re lost.”

     The sky grew darker and I needed time. My feet grew heavier. My eyes were dry. I came face to face with a wolf and I lost the fight.

     

    I’m melting. I’m changing this forgotten path.

     

    I lay there slightly alive and in vain. My hopes grew darker as time shades away. “Jordan, get up!” Yeah, I’d yell out my name.

    I finally stood up and brushed off my legs. My vision started to focus. The shade from all the trees started to fade away.

     

    I’m melting. I’m changing this forgotten path.

    My Queen                 Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (August 2007)

     

    I’ll write, and I’ll sing, but nothing matters anymore. And I’ll take one last look at what I had before, because I’ve been taken up to heaven with someone and it’s quite beautiful. The air is like diamonds.

     

    When your green eyes gaze into mine my queen.

     

    It’s been more than three years and my smile’s not fading. A heart so big, Katie I love you forever.

     

    When your green eyes gaze into mine my queen.

    Twenty Two                   Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (May 2007)

     

    I’ve been known for twenty-two years. I have learned to write.

    And I’ve been writing songs for the last twenty-two years blind, because there’s something lurking deep inside. There’s something I don’t get.

     

    I’ve been asleep twenty-two years now my eyes are wide.

    Yet there’s still something that I can’t throw my wings on to.  My eyes are dry. Oh, I won’t cut my guts out, first, I’ll sit and write.

     

    What am I waiting for?

     

    I’ve been holding on for twenty-two years. Now I’m not, because I understand my cure is poison that my body won’t drink.

    And I’ve died before, but now I’m stuck deciding my own fate.

     

    What am I waiting for?

  • 04:11 Lyrics This Mystery

    This Mystery                  Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (May 2003)

     

    Sheep jump gates in her dreams as she prayed out the window knowing all her fears.

    We’d see in her eyes as she stared back into ours gazing tear to tear.

    This is your time to be with your son Michael to live for eternity.

    I’m going backwards into her backyard.

     

    This mystery’s dying in May.

    Her fists have spoken to describe her pain.

    We’re lost, we’re drowning in memories.

    Soon she’ll be crawling, she’s crawling through me.

     

    For me, I’ve noticed the scene of where we all used to share love and harmony.

    It’s fading away. I see an old photo slowly evaporating.

    I guess we’re fine, but I want more.

    This nightmare’s haunting all of me.

    I’m going backwards into her backyard.

     

    This mystery’s dying in May.

    Her fists have spoken to describe her pain.

    We’re lost, we’re drowning in memories.

    Soon she’ll be crawling, she’s crawling through me.

     

    I’m going backwards into her backyard.

     

    Yeah she’s crawling, she’s crawling through me.

    Rocks       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney October (2007)

     

    I’ll find out that evil has come to be in all that’s around.

    I’ll leave town searching for answers left under the ground.

    I’ll write home. In this disaster I’m under rocks, but I’m alive.

     

    And I’ll write this song even though I’m struggling.

    And I’ll fight this off, I’ll push these rocks off me.

    I’m up I’m down, but I’ll sure be off the ground.

     

    I lost my bones, and my body’s decaying. My nerves are all that’s alive.

    Restless nights searching for a cure. Heaven sounds so divine.

     

    I’ll sleep this off. I’ll be up tomorrow.

    And my sight is strong. I’ll keep following arrows that I have made. It’s that smile on her face.

     

    And I’ll write this song even though I’m struggling.

    And I’ll fight this off, I’ll push these rocks off me.

    I’m up I’m down, but I’ll sure be off the ground.

    I’ll sleep this off. I’ll be up tomorrow.

    And my sight is strong. I’ll keep following arrows that I have made. It’s that smile on her face.

    I look out of my window. I see her there. I stare and wonder why?

     

    Little butterflies, there’s no pain in a butterfly.

    When they fly, do they know they fly?

    They’re so real and yet I’m not alive.

     

    I lay there. Wait a while and it lands on me. Gazing eye to eye.

     

    Little butterflies, there’s no pain in a butterfly.

    When they fly, do they know they fly?

    They’re so real and yet I’m not alive.

  • 03:46 Lyrics The Rain Song

    The Rain Song       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (August 2006)

     

    Sleep now, you're on the edge of breaking down.
    Breathe now, you can't forget that one.
    Rain fell, and you're still along that same wet road.
    Oh I'm only twenty one and I'm already so low.

    When I'm in no pain, I'm so alive.
    I hate my face when I take my pills.
    I'll live this way and I will until I'm gone.

    But I'm okay. The topics change. I'll be so great. I'm on my way.

    Sleep now, you're on the edge of breaking down. 
    Breathe now, you can't forget that one.
    Rain fell, and you're still along that same wet road.
    Oh I'm only twenty one and I'm already so low.

    It feels like rain when ever I flare.
    On cloudy days I become aware.
    Rain comes and goes, but when it comes, it likes to rot.

    But I'm okay. The topics change. I'll be so great. I'm on my way.

    Sleep now, you're on the edge of breaking down. 
    Breathe now, you can't forget that one.
    Rain fell, and you're still along that same wet road.
    Oh I'm only twenty one and I'm already so low.

  • 03:56 Lyrics Worth Remembering

    Worth Remembering       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (February 2006)

     

    I'm walking backwards looking for my heart I lost it when it caught your page.
    The water flowing from my eyes has caused a river.
    The next thing I remember is the ground feels better when you're on your feet.
    The chances of survival became slender.
    Months after death, I became alive and well.
    I started jumping pages again. Then one story caught my eye.

    Time to remember.
    The tale starts with a guy and a girl who are falling for their every move.
    Something tells me that this story will last forever.

    Let's make this the first thing worth remembering. Your aroma is known.
    Let's make this the first time we decide here as one.
    This disease called love is all I have, and it will show.
    Just swallow this rose and then let go.

    This fairy tale's in my mind as I lay back with my head on the grass.
    The blank horizon is the center of attention.
    My eyes are closed as I begin to hold the hand of the girl from the story.
    There is no other word to describe perfection.

    Let's make this the first thing worth remembering. Your aroma is known. 
    Let's make this the first time we decide here as one. 
    This disease called love is all I have, and it will show. 
    Just swallow this rose and then let go. 

    This story’s never ending. As I read I keep pretending.
    There are chapters full of wonders, and I want it all; but I have it all.

    Let's make this the first thing worth remembering. Your aroma is known. 
    Let's make this the first time we decide here as one. 
    This disease called love is all I have, and it will show. 
    Just swallow this rose and then let go. 

    Every time I fall, I fall for you.

     

  • 03:50 Lyrics Disease

    Disease       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (September 2006)

     

    I've opened up my eyes. I've sacrificed my time.
    I can't just stop sitting here with this girl on my mind. She's halfway to heaven. She's flying.

    Oh, she's there, and I'm here but she's close, so I'll reach for her in the sky and I'll grab on her leg so she's here with me.

    Darling, you're my disease. I've fallen to my knee.
    Jordan, you've won, you've beaten the real in between.

    I'm loving her green eyes. Her wings are labeled mine. I can't just stop sitting here with this girl on my mind. She's halfway to heaven. She's flying.

    Oh, she's there, and I'm here but she's close, so I'll reach for her in the sky and I'll grab on her leg; so, she's here with me.
    I’ll bring her down to me.

    Darling, you're my disease. I've fallen to my knee.
    Jordan, you've won, you've beaten the real in between my lungs and what's left in my chest.

    How will you take this? Will you break this over your knee?
    And will I make it, or place it out of my reach?

    Darling, you're my disease. I've fallen to my knee.
    Jordan, you've won, you've beaten the real in between my lungs and what's left in my chest.

  • 03:04 Lyrics Is This Over Now

    Is This Over Now?       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (September 2006)

     

    Where's the knife? I'm carving at the sky.
    I'll cut a piece for you. Where's my life?
    I'm falling in a cave full of tar. What do I do?
    I'm stuck in time. There are questions on my mind.

    Is this over now? I just can't see it being over now. I just won't believe in fire, but it's burning now. I'm about to fall over.

    I’m blind. I can't see. I take my hands and throw them at my face.
    I took a fall to my knees. I came to realize my legs are broken.
    My bones are dry and my body's slowly dying.

    Is this over now? I just can't see it being over now. I just won't believe in fire, but it's burning now. I'm about to fall over.

    And then when every where I walk my feet don't seem to meet and every word I speak is meaningless to me.
    My body's going bad. My rose is fading red. This burning's never ending and it's raging through my head.
    It’s downcast eyes again.

    Where's the knife? I'm carving at the sky. I'll cut a piece for you. Where's my life? I'm falling.

    Is this over now? I just can't see it being over now. I just won't believe in fire, but it's burning now. I'm about to fall over.

  • 03:34 Lyrics In The Dark

    In The Dark       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (August 2006) 

     

    I'm in the dark. I'm freezing. The ghost is in my skin. I'm paranoid, I'm fleeting. The stars are my light. It's dim, and I need more light. Can I breathe tonight?

    Is this me, my life? Is there a reason for pain all night? Will I be alright?

    I'm in the boring season. It seems like no one's here but all around is reason to live. It's only fear that pulls the trigger. Will this last forever?

    Is this me, my life? Is there a reason for pain all night? Will I be alright? It's time to see inside. Is there medication that's right? Will I be alright?

    I don't want this, please take this back! God, I'm so scared. It's time to relax. Twenty seconds left for this time. Will the next one hurt more? I'm fine. Twenty seconds left for this time. Why not?

    Is this me, my life? Is there a reason for pain all night? Will I be alright?

  • 03:23 Lyrics Does Anybody Know

    Does Anybody Know?       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (April 2006)

     

    It could be the hundred-mile drive. It's a story never ending.
    It's the shadows left behind or the rare internal bleeding.
    It could be the days left in my life. I'm going backwards on this flight.
    Love's illusion has a meaning. Is love what you decide?

    Then go! You have to see that I'm down, so walk on me.
    I hate the way this feels. It's real; do you feel better?

    Does anybody know her love is fire in my eyes?
    Can anybody see that it's burning through my head?
    Does anybody want this crime? Just go and bury me tonight.

    Sometimes I stare into space. I then pretend you are there with me.
    Then I break down and sail away. I travel east right through her heart.
    I'm simply lost. I can't find my way. Have I become all that I've hate?
    Love is stress, love is forgotten. Love's red has turned to gray.

    Now I must live so strong. This heartburn's lost all it's pain. I feel so sedated.

    Then go! You have to see that I'm down, so walk on me.
    I hate the way this feels. It's real; do you feel better?

    Does anybody know her love is fire in my eyes?
    Can anybody see that it's burning through my head?
    Does anybody want this crime? Just go and bury me tonight, just bury me tonight.

    Now I know an over turn of luck won't change what was written and I know I'm happier now than ever. I found someone that I adore.

    Does anybody know her love is fire in my eyes?
    Can anybody see that it's burning through my head?
    Does anybody want this crime? Just go and bury me tonight, just bury me tonight.

  • 03:26 Lyrics Fallen Dove

    Fallen Dove       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (August 2006)

     

    There was no more that I could have felt at that funeral.
    I hate to send this rose to another world.
    I miss her. Now this curse is all I ever have.
    It's hard to believe that a dove could fall from the sky.

    Every day I live this curse. I remember what it's like. I remember her last night. Every day the scars get worse. Her pictures haunt my sight. My clothes, they feel so tight.

    And I pray, but everything’s still backwards. It's so hard to make out her face. 

    There was no more that I could have felt at that funeral.
    I hate to send this rose to another world.
    I miss her. Now this curse is all I ever have.
    It's hard to believe that a dove could fall from the sky.

    My words are tied; my throat is sore. I'm restless every night. My hopes are in denial. Our group is torn, it’s caving in. It’s a family without grace. This family’s out of place.

    And I pray, but everything’s is backwards. It's so hard to make out her face.

    There was no more that I could have felt at that funeral.
    I hate to send this rose to another world.
    I miss her. Now this curse is all I ever have.
    It's hard to believe that a dove could fall from heaven.

  • 03:33 Lyrics The Ghost In The Window

    The Ghost in the Window       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (August 2006)

     

    I'm sitting alone. Memories are crawling out my brain.
    Now I'm back in time. I'm a ghost looking through the same window.
    I'm just a little boy playing with Mike trading time away for fun.
    Rebekah and Sam, I'm watching them. Making sure they're fine.

    Jordan, the years are going. You just can't run that fast.
    These winter leaves are slowly turning into the past.

    Love enters my skin and so does this heartless virus.
    I'm confused as a ghost. The window broke, but love is stronger than my health. She's a gem so swell.

    Jordan, the years are going. You just can't run that fast.
    These winter leaves are slowly turning into the past.
    Everything's so intense now. I hope I don't relapse.
    I hope I live my life well. I won't take anything back.

    Jordan, the years are going. You just can't run that fast.
    These winter leaves are slowly turning into the past.
    Everything's so intense now. I hope I don't relapse.
    I hope I live my life well. I won't take anything back.
    I want an endless summer to relive all those years.
    Next time I see a ghost I'll try to hold back my fears.
    This song is never ending, there's just so much inside.
    Think strong and stop pretending; just letting out my pride.

  • 04:16 Lyrics This Helpless Soldier

    This Helpless Soldier       Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (April 2003)

     

    I'm melting out my eyes. The letter soaks all night.
    The gravel hurts my skin. I'm tired of no light.
    This isn't who I am. My heart lies in my hand.
    There's X's on my mind. My life lies on command.

    I'm also bleeding out the colors blue and white.
    This helpless soldier needs another right thing to remember. Not a barrel of a gun.
    I could see you're saving; I could see you're craving nothing more than war.
    Everyone is waiting here to see if they defeated hell.

    This time the butterflies had forgotten how to fly.
    I'm scared, yet I can't feel. This almost seems not real.
    This is all deceiving. This is all conceiving more.

    I'm also bleeding out the colors blue and white.
    This helpless soldier needs another right thing to remember. Not a barrel of a gun.
    I could see you're saving; I could see you're craving nothing more than war.
    Everyone is waiting here to see if they defeated hell.

    I need you more than ever. Don't let them send that letter.
    I'm starving, shattered in their lie.

    I'm also bleeding out the colors blue and white.
    This helpless soldier needs another right thing to remember. Not a barrel of a gun.
    I could see you're saving; I could see you're craving nothing more than war.
    Everyone is waiting here to see if they defeated hell.

  • 04:46 Lyrics Sometimes Sky

    Sometimes Sky      Music & Lyrics by Jordan Sweeney (May 2003)

     

    Sometimes I don't care if I'm headed anywhere.
    Sometimes I like to drift away and blow my worries in the air.
    I just sit there in the rain with a smile up on my face.
    I see what I can see. Oh I'm so happy being me.

    This feeling's so great and the sky is gray.
    Sometimes I just feel like everything’s right.
    There's nothing better than the brilliant taste of sweeter, cleaner air.

    Sometimes the sirens feel me up.
    There's something turning birds to luck.
    The gentle relaxation erases the insects crawling on my skin.
    I want this all to last. The sky is fading fast.
    What more can this sky bring? And will the sky come back?

     

    This feeling's so great and the sky is gray.
    Sometimes I just feel like everything’s right.
    There's nothing better than the brilliant taste of sweeter, cleaner air.

    And I want to just leave off the ground. And I never want to let me down. And I'll pick a cloud to float to now, but I never want to let me down.

    Sometimes I don’t care.
