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?
