"One Track Mind, Four Track Heart" as written by Caleb D Pepp, Nicholas Dustin Coleman, Cody Edward Josephson, Kevin Thomas Snider, Arthi Meera and Matt Wysocki....
With one hand fast against my mouth,
I'm trying not to let it out
Cause I've been caught between a puddle and a cloud.
Theres nothing new that I could say to tell you why I couldn't stay or why I wander all my life to find the one that got away.


CHORUS:

If only I could find a place to rest.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could see the dreams are all I ever had.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could find a place to rest.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could see the dreams are all I ever had.

Without a single place to be,
I'm dying fast and feeling free.
I've got my plans to live forever in a dream.
I need to know that I exist.
I left to satisfy an itch I've had for years.
I long to write a song the world cannot dismiss.


If only I could find a place to rest.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could see the dreams are all I ever had.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could find a place to rest.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could see the dreams are all I ever had.


You're the sunrise that never comes.
You're the reason I don't believe.
You're the reason I'm always on the run away from everything and everyone.
You're the reason I lie awake
that asme reoccurring dream, a fever that wouldn't break.
Now I'm sweating in my sleep to hear you say...


If only I could find a place to rest.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could see the dreams are all I ever had.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could find a place to rest.
(I'm running in circles)
If only I could see the dreams are all I ever had.

    General Commentsomeone is in love but they know that whoever it is they cant have...so the only thing that they have is their dreams of this person...and it pretty much drives them crazy

    General Commentthis whole record is really emotional and powerful. 'on the run' is so very fitting for every song on it.

    this song to me is about someone being really caught up in their dreams and they have hurt someone really close to them by being such a wanderer... but they continue to wander around in search of what they've lost and the person they hurt is now too afraid to get to close and they are "always on the run from everything and everyone." it almost seems ironic to me, and i think there's much more to it than that simple thought but it's hard to explain.

    i think the bridge is someone else saying that the roaming person is the one that always lets them down and they just really want to hear them say that they want to settle down.
    "Now I'm sweating in my sleep to hear you say...
    'If only I could find a place to rest.
    (I'm running in circles)
    If only I could see that dreams are all I ever had.
    (I'm running in circles)'..."

    i didn't think it was that great of a song until i really paid attention to the lyrics and now it's one of my faves. haha enough rambling...
