This is What I Live For Lyrics

01. I Laugh at Myself

This is the part where I laugh at myself
And the world for thinking that things could actually change.
Just like the old me you knew once before who
Almost destroyed and lost everything to this same damn thing.
I’m once again in my head, I’m way over my head
And I can’t seem to find a place to put all this pain.
My hope is a fraud and I can’t talk to God
I believed in the good of the world and now I’m just ashamed.

I want to drink ’cause I’m mad and I’m angry but I swore, I promised my wife that I wouldn’t drink again.
There were so many chances I had that I wasted as time went on by that were never to be seen again.
And I never felt bad or guilty about moving on with my life but I could never move on from you in the end.
So I fight for love, come on break my heart.

02. The Way I Used To Love You

Uh oh here we go
Running through the out lane
Boy, I nearly got away
I wasted all this time

Uh oh here I go
Riding through the might have been
I know so many got away
The worst is yet to come

The worst is yet to come
To come

Uh oh here we go
Falling in the out lane
Boy, I nearly got away
I wasted all this time

Uh oh here I go
Swimming in the might have been
I know so many got away
The worst is yet to come

The worst is yet to come
To come

Late at night I sit and stare
Alone, I share the weight of how I used to love you

Your color’s gone just like when every winter comes
I miss the way I used to love you

Uh oh here I go
Living in the might have been
My only fear remains unseen
The worst, here it comes

03. Love Stupid (feat. Karen Hover)

Do you remember the days
Remember when we were new
The wind was blowing our way
Making one out of two

She said, don’t forget who you are
I won’t forget who I am
I’m love stupid and blind
Obsession again

We both know I’m
Love stupid

We both know I’m
Love stupid

Even if I get bit by the spider
(Punish Me)
Will you open the door

We both know

Will I ever feel the same

Can I admit it was me
Can you admit it was you
Can we go back to the start
Can we go back to the new

She said, I won’t forget who you are
I won’t forget who I am
I’m stupid and blind
Obsession again

We both know I’m
Love stupid

We both know I’m
Love stupid

Even if I get bit by the spider
(Punish me)
Will you open the door

We both know

I’ll never feel the same

And if I get bit by the spider
(Punish me)
Will you open the door

We both know that
Love stupid

We both know I’m
Love stupid

(Punish me)

We both know that
Love’s useless

(Punish me)

We both know I’m
Love stupid

(Punish me)

04. This Is What I Live For (feat. Steve Schiltz)

It’s what I live for
Falling on top of my head
Caught in a landslide
(Tumbling down again)

Part of me just dies
Peeling me out of my skin
Caught in a landslide
(Falling down again)

This is what I live for
This is what I live for
(Falling down again)

I’ll never look back
Over my shoulder again
It’s what I live for
(Falling down again)

Part of me just dies
Peeling me out of my skin
Caught in a landslide
(Falling down again)

This is what I live for
This is what I live for
(Falling down again)

I have to find a way
To make sure that you’re okay
But no one answers me

I walk around
This lonely city

I walk around this lonely city
To make sure that you’re okay
But no one answers me
Cause no one hears at all

This is what I live for
This is what I live for
(Falling down again)

This is what I live for
This is what I live for
(Falling down again)

I’ll never let go

This is what I live for
(Falling down again)

I’ll never look back
Over my shoulder again
It’s what I live for
(Falling down again)

05. Fight For Love (feat. Blue Reed)

We ain’t gonna live forever
Cause life isn’t always fair
How can we be there for each other
If we always gotta be somewhere
We always knew that we would be together
Feeling low, we just rise above
We carry hearts that have both been broken
Don’t you think we better fight for love
Even if it breaks your heart
Come on, fight for love
Even if it breaks your heart

All the promises I make
I’ll change the world for you
I’m gonna make a few mistakes
Yeah, I bet you make some too
I always knew that we would be together
Feeling low, we just rise above
We carry hearts that have both been broken
Don’t you think we better fight for love
Even if it breaks your heart
Come on, fight for love
Even if it breaks your heart

You never settle for anything less
No, you never settle, you never settle

Fight for love

Break my heart

Fight for love
(never settle)
Even if it breaks your heart
(never settle, never settle)
Come on, fight for love
(never settle)
Even if it breaks your heart
(never settle, never settle)
Fight for love

Fight for love

(Breaks your heart)
(Fight for love)

06. Oh My My

You have black hair I have blue
You look sadder than most girls do
The way you walk around
Always watching the ground
Well I like watching you

Your friends, they don’t like me
I think they’re jealous of my tattoos
I’m not a bad guy
Just like wearing black
I’m not scared of anything
But saying this to you.

It’s going down, neither of us want to be alone right now

Oh My My
Yeah I’m loving all your warning signs
Cause I’m sucker for your oh my my
Girl you get me high
Yeah you’re my type, you’re danger, danger

Yeah I’ll be waiting by the blacktop
Like a cigarette stain for you
Every day I just won’t go away
I’m not scared of anything
But saying this to you

It’s going down, neither of us want to be alone right now

Oh My My
Yeah I’m loving all your warning signs
Cause I’m sucker for your oh my my
Girl you get me high
Yeah you’re my type, you’re danger, danger

Oh My My

Because I’m loving all your oh my my
Girl you get me high

Watch us free fall
Catch me, I’ll catch you too

You want me to
Caught my eye
And now we free fall
Catch me, I’ll catch you

07. Moving On (So Long)

You always said that I would never find a better one
Well look at me I did that shit
Well come on now
Come on now

You always said that I would end up alone
Well, look at me, I’m on top of the world
You were wrong now
You were wrong now

You like it better when I’m falling apart
It’s easier for you to go and break my heart
Come on now
Yeah, come on now

Well the best way to get back at you
Is to live my life, be happy and true
Come on now

Yeah, I’ve been hurt, but I’m moving on
So long
So long
Yeah, I’ve been hurt, but I’m moving on
So long
So long

We’ve all been hurt, yeah

You’re not good for my soul
The one that cares less always has control
Well I’m taking that back and you’ll be amazed ‘cause
I only get better looking with age

You like it better when I’m falling apart
It’s easier for you to go and break my heart
Come on now
Yeah, come on now

Oh, oh, well the best way to get back at you
Is to live my life, be happy and true
Come on now

Yeah, I’ve been hurt, but I’m moving on
So long

We’ve all been hurt, yeah

You’re not the one to give
My life is mine to live

Yeah, I’m not going to
I wrote you a hundred songs
So here’s your final one
Now you’re the lonely one
I’ll never take you back

So long

So long

We’ve all been hurt, but we’re moving on
So long
So long

We’ve all been hurt, yeah

08. I Will Follow You

I could sit here on this fake ass throne
Licking every single bone I own
But that won’t get me no where near the truth
‘Cause the only thing I want to be is next to you, my love

You’re a shotgun shot in the dark, you’re the property mark
A flash of a spark
The golden and yellow chrome
My daddy told me son, always tell the truth
‘Cause the only thing I want to be is next to you, my love

So where you go
I will follow
Where you go
I’ll follow
I will follow you
Where you go, I’m going too
I will follow you
Where you go, I’m going too

Well last month hurt and I hold it dear
But I swear to God, it’s gonna be our year
I could tell you all the shit I did in my past
But, baby girl, it’s nothing you’re gonna wanna hear

So I release this anger built inside
And now I won’t go hide anymore
My daddy told me, son, always tell the truth
‘Cause the only thing I want to be is good for you, my love

So where you go
I will follow
I said where you go
I’ll follow
I will follow you
Where you go, I’m going too
I will follow you
Where you go, I’m going too

Well the almost was and the could’ve beens
Ain’t welcome, no, they don’t live around here
We’re like two separate islands and we stare through the silence
You ain’t welcome if you don’t live around here
You ain’t welcome if you don’t live around here

Cross my heart and I know it’s true
You’ve been loyal to me, so I’ll be loyal to you
And with every hell we might walk through
With this I pledge my soul to you

I said where you go, I will follow
Baby, where you, I’ll follow
I will follow you

09. Completely

I never thought that you’d fall for me
There’s an ache, I’m awake, in you’re healing still
On a one way street, you’re behind me
I’ve got an empty seat and it’s meant for you

Now you’re turning me on as you’re climbing in
I’ve got one hand on the wheel and one hand on you
Nothing gets between us, I feel you
We’re on a one way street, yeah, meant for two

You are a shining star
No matter where you are
You’re never second best
You are my one, completely

I could’ve left, but for you I’ll stay
No matter what they say
You’re never second best
You are my one, completely

And now the streetlights are falling in
Every wave of light, I catch a glimpse of you
You’re making me dizzy, you’re curing me
I had an empty seat, now it’s filled with you

I hear the ocean calling
It’s 3am, so we park in the sand
Nothing gets between us, I feel you
We’re on a one way street, yeah, meant for two

You are a shining star
No matter where you are
You’re never second best
You are my one, completely

I could’ve left, but for you I’ll stay
No matter what they say
You’re never second best
You are my one, completely

Completely
Completely
Completely
Completely

You are a shining star
No matter where you are
You’re never second best
You are my one, completely

I could’ve left, but for you I’ll stay
No matter what they say
You’re never second best
You are my one, completely

You are my one, completely

10. Stay With Me

The first time I got muddy I was a young boy
Ten years old
I got lost in the woods in the middle of the night, in the dark and rainy cold

Young and damp a summer camp
I was a funny little sleepwalker
So I didn’t think to tie myself to that oak tree before I fell asleep

When I stood up that night not knowing all the while
Where I’d end up when I wake up having slept walk for a mile

I found myself running barefoot almost naked through the trees
I was in my underwear with branches slapping on my face and knees.

I ran on top the rocks wet cedar thorns and moss feeling nothing
Then the moon rose up and I realized I was lost.

Nowhere close to home for the first time I was alone
Then the lightning struck and the thunder shook and I called out for my mom

Give me some attention that’s what I yelled into the night
Please come down and help me show me sympathetic light

I need someone close to me
If only for a minute
I’m not afraid of the dark
I’m just scared of what’s in it.

Stay with me

I had a dream last night that someone was taking my air from me
Creating ten times as many problems as any human can solve
They said “you don’t try hard enough” and shoes don’t always come in pairs
They love you when they make you look good but despise you behind closed doors.
With vague goals and deep cracks it told me I can do better than that
Living in the shadow of someone’s light that won’t turn on.
You see misery isn’t everything
And I’m still learning that
Just give me the chance to turn my light back on.

Stay with me

In the words of my father
Yes I’m good enough
Yes I’m good enough
Light the heart of my father
Yes I’m good enough
Yes I’m good enough
With the hope and strength of an ocean tide
Stay with me

11. The Weatherman

We don’t touch anymore
Remember the way that we did before
You could say we were just kids before we had our own,
Starting building a home, but the fact is
We don’t touch anymore

We forgot how to communicate
Sometimes I watch you fall and I just walk away
What is that bullshit,
Why do I do that,
Why can’t this dark cloud go away
We don’t talk anymore

And the weatherman said that the storm will clear
The one that’s been here for years
Maybe, just maybe this time he’ll be right

Before the pictures are gone
You’re right, I’m wrong
Before you leave us behind
This is wrong, cause we’re right
We’re right on the edge of a blue sky
We’re on the edge of a blue sky

Like a dark red rose left in the parking lot
I sit here choking on words I should have never thought
I know I just tore you down
And my words will come back around
Just like that, just like that honeymoon I promised you, but you never got

And the weatherman said that the storm will clear
Yeah, this is our year
Maybe, just maybe this time he’ll be right

Before the pictures are gone
You’re right, I’m wrong
Before you leave us behind
This is wrong, cause we’re right
We’re right on the edge of a blue sky
We’re on the edge of a blue sky

And the weatherman said that the storm’s gonna clear
Yeah, this is our year
Baby, I’m ready to believe that he’s right
Oh be right

Before the pictures are gone
You’re right, I’m wrong
Before you leave us behind
This is wrong, cause we’re right
We’re right on the edge of a blue sky
We’re on the edge of a blue sky

12. Who Do You Run From

Who do you run from, man
What are you scared of though
What do you take back home
Who’s going to save your soul

There’s a devil inside of me
See him laying on the floor
Cut him open, watch him bleed to death
Now he won’t come back no more

I could just stare at him
With his eyes so bright
He was my safety net
He was my middle of the night

Who do you run from, man
What are you scared of though
What do you take back home
Who’s going to save your soul

When did we fall back down
When do we fall on faith
How do we reach the ones who push us away
How do we see the light in our time of need
All we have to do is just believe

Oh, who do you run from, man
What are you scared of though
What do you take back home
Who’s going to save your soul

13. Only Lost Is Found

Anyone can set alarms
I come creeping like a fable
You ask me if I’m able
And darling, it might help if you were gone

But I’ve nowhere left to turn
My God is staring through the starlight
At the wound hid behind my cheek
With the look of my birthday beak
I’ll stay and live here in the dark

Hold against the ground
Way beneath the Earth it goes around
I’ll climb the wall if I am able to
But only lost is found

A warm, sedated kind of love
It’s a lonely miracle
I stand until I don’t believe my eyes
I found the light above

I’ve lifted all I can
So I turn to the page of our connection
I need you here with me, I’m willing, I’m kneeling
A place where I belong

Pain, the worst is finally gone
Way, way beyond the signals
I know you’re used to suffering
But love will take some time

Hold against the ground
Way beneath the Earth it goes around
I’ll climb the wall if I am able to
But only lost is found

A warm, sedated kind of love
It’s a lonely miracle
I stand until I don’t believe my eyes
I found the light of God.
The light of God.

Our smile will not forget us, no
He marks it slowly
Just pull me in your arms below, get out
The water’s always ready
