The different things that people tell you try
The different things that keep you from living your life
Sunsets and breezes used to tickle your eyes
They don't want you not even in July

If I could see you now I wouldn't tell you to try
And I wouldn't ask how you feel cause I wouldn't want you to lie
For some reason I don't even know why
I feel the need to tell you that I think you're going to be fine

If I was older now I could give you advice
If I was younger now I'd still know how to smile
Beneath my surface now where there once burned a fire
There's just a pile of ashes and old telephone wire

See it ain't just you that can't find the desire
It ain't just you that stands with one foot in the fire
But if you'd hold my hand and we'd look to the sky
I think that there's a chance we'd once again feel alive

But if the sun comes up inside your mind
Then we could make it home just in time
To see a moon lit loft taking flight
And then to the life we once knew would collide

But I know that it ain't easy to try
Yeah I know that it ain't easy to try

    General CommentThe most beautiful song i ever hear...Amazing lyrics and video of this song is great... This part is just amazing:

    "See it ain't just you that can't find the desire
    It ain't just you that stands with one foot in the fire
    But if you'd hold my hand and we'd look to the sky
    I think that there's a chance we'd once again feel alive"

    JBM is brilliant artist... I hope more people will hear his music...

    General Commentjust a few subtle differences i hear:

    the different things that people tell you to try
    the different things that keep you from living your life
    sunsets and breezes that used to tickle your eyes
    they don't warn (warm?) you now not even in july

    if i could see you now i wouldn't tell you to try
    and i wouldn't ask how you feel 'cause i wouldn't want you to lie
    for some reason that i don't even know why
    i feel the need to tell you that i think that you're going to be fine

    if i was older now i could give you advice
    if i was younger now i'd still know how to smile
    beneath my surface where there once burned a fire
    there's just a pile of ashes and an old telephone wire

    see it ain't just you that can't find the desire
    it ain't just you that stands with one foot in the fire
    but if you'd hold my hand and we'd look to the sky
    i think that there's a chance that we can once again feel alive

    but if the sun comes up inside your mind
    then we could make it home just in time
    to see a moon lit love taking flight
    and into the life we once knew we'll collide

    but i know that it ain't easy to try
    yeah i know that it ain't easy to try
