Hidden Pictures: Lyrics

Sure Feels Like Love

You say you don’t think that you love me
But you’d never know it by the way that you hold me
Your body’s tellin’ you something baby
But you’d never know it from what you’ve told me
You say I’m in it deeper than you
You just wanna be good friends
But every time that we’re together
That’s how it begins
But not how it ends

CHORUS
You can deny that we fit like a glove
You can lie about what you’re dreamin’ of
You can try to kid yourself, endlessly
But baby it sure feels like love
To me

You say you don’t think you should love me
Cause you’re been hurt too many times before
But all the games you might have lost, baby
Still don’t change this one’s score
You say I don’t understand you
You just don’t think that anyone could
But all I don’t understand is
Your acting so bad when its feeling so good
CHORUS

I’m not tryin’ to lead you on
I’m just tryin’ to lead to
A little bit of me, a little bit of love
That’s a little bit overdue

CHORUS

 

Someone I Used To Know

Once bright eyes that used to greet me
Now locked in an empty stare
I can’t get in, to see if someone’s there
Words that once had come so easy
Now seem forced, and far away
In those rare times
When you’ve even got something to say

And I can’t believe that its you I see
Though my eyes, they swear that its so
But you look just like
Someone I used to know

Happy times from a collage
Of memories, so far away
I can’t find one
That resembles you today

And I can’t believe that its you I see
Though my eyes, they swear that its so
But you look just like
Someone I used to know

Was I so blind, was I so blind
That I didn’t even see you leave
I don’t know, the answer is lost
In a past I can’t retrieve

And I can’t believe that its you I see
Though my eyes, they swear that its so
But you look just like
Someone I used to know
Yeah, you look just like
Someone I used to know

 

Your Face

Now, has come our time to part
It’s so clear in my head and so hard for my heart
I, will love you all my life, I know you love me too
And that’s when I feel the knife

You, your love needs to roam
And my love needs you home
Your love needs, so much space
But my love needs to see
Your face

I, I reach to hold you tight,
But again you disappear, into the lonely night
I, I know the reasons why
But it doesn’t seem to help
Hold back these tears I cry

You, your love plays defense
And mine’s so damn intense
Your love needs a hiding place
But my love needs to see
Your face

You run again, I don’t know where or why
There’s only so much pain love can justify
And I can’t say, we’ll ever lose this dream
But can you stop a train
When she’s built up so much steam

You, your love needs the space
And you, your love needs a hiding place
And your love disappears sometimes, without a trace
But in any case
My love needs to see
Right in front of me
My love needs to see …

Looks like rain
Feels like rain
Surely looks like rain

Or are those just the tears
On my face
On your face

 

The Fire In Mary’s Eyes

Blinded by a flash of light, visions in the dead of night
Rising flames dancing free
Owning and controlling me
She owns me now
And I never felt nothing like this
No I never felt this way before
I never felt nothing like this
I couldn’t ever want, I couldn’t ever ask for more

CHORUS
I never felt nothin’ like the fire
In Mary’s eyes
I never knew nothin’ ‘bout desire
Til the flames began to rise
I never felt lifted any higher
Til she cut me down to size
I never felt nothing like the flame of desire
From the fire in Mary’s eyes

Overcome by fantasies, burning my realities
One by one she melts away
Everything that mattered yesterday
She owns me now
And I never felt nothing like this
No I never felt this way before
I never felt nothing like this
I couldn’t ever want, I couldn’t ever ask for more

CHORUS

She moves me in so many ways
Through sleepless nights and endless days
The god of love gets on his knees
And prays
I just hold on

CHORUS

A Man Needs To Know

He usually won't ask
He doesn't want to look insecure
But you've gotta let him know girl
If you want to be sure
That he knows you really love him
So if you want to make sure he won't go

CHORUS

A man needs to know
That you're his woman
You need to show
That you care
So if you don't want him to think
You don't care if he stays or goes
A man needs to know

He keeps it inside
He's afraid to show he's got needs
But if you cut him through the heart girl
Believe me baby, he bleeds
He needs to hear you tell him
Even though he may never say so

CHORUS

You can take him or leave him, you can leave him alone
But don't cry that he should have known

A man needs to know that you're his woman
And you need to show that you care
So if you'd rather be happy
Then just being right
If you'd rather his arms
Be around you at night
If you want all his feelings to show
A man needs to know

 

Ghost Of A Chance

Steven I never knew you, I only know your name
And even though its not your fault, pal
There’s only you to blame
If you hadn’t died that day, I never would’ve met her
You two would be married now, and I wouldn’t be cryin’
Tryin’ to forget her

CHORUS
She was born to be with you
You were born to die too young
I was born to fall in love
With a girl too badly stung
How was I to know?
This was a hopeless romance
I never stood
A ghost of a chance

If you can’t accept the past, you’ll never want the new
Her heart’s still buried with you there
Sometimes Steve, can you believe it buddy
I wish I were you

CHORUS

Steve, I know, you wouldn’t want it this way
Is there nothing I can do?
Do you know someone to whom I can pray?
To break through the fear
Her eyes showed so clear
On the day that she told me she loved me
Like she loved you

I never stood, a ghost of a chance

Diamond

I was taken by surprise
Captured, in her deep blue eyes
I could see the kindness
Glisten, off her face
And she may be beautiful
On the outside
But inside
That’s the magic place

CHORUS
She’s got a soul
Glitters like a diamond
She’s got a heart
It sparkles like a diamond
She’s a glowing part of me
Flowing to the heart of me
And I feel this love deep inside of me
Glitter like diamond

Since she sent her love my way
Everyday’s my lucky day
Every cloud a pillow
A refuge, from the race
And she may be beautiful
To those on the outside
But inside
That’s the magic place
CHORUS

Everyone tries to look for love
Hands searching for the perfect glove
It’s not something you can force
But if you’re looking for a sign
Just look to see her shine
Like my diamond

No Exit

I look to the left, I look to the right
I see no way, out tonight
I try to plead, in my defense
But I put it all together
And there’s no evidence

CHORUS
All the doors are locked, all the keys are gone
All alone out here, I’m just hanging on
All the paths are blocked, what was once so clear
There’s no exit, out of here
I can’t see no exit
So let me go

The wanderer, cannot allow
That Dion sings, gospel now
The jury pleads in my defense
But the verdict is my own
And there’s no innocence

All the doors are locked, all the keys are gone
All alone out here, I’m just hanging on
All the paths are blocked, what was once so clear
There’s no exit, out of here
So let me go
Let me go

 

Hold On To Your Heart

Deep in your gut, twisted in knots
Anxiety is all that you’ve got
There in your chest
The hole that you see
Down in the place
Where your heart used to be

You don’t smile anymore
In your anger
Through your tears
You make a vow

Next time for sure, next time
You’re gonna hold on to your heart

You’re useless for now, your mind is a waste
All you can do is picture her face
You think of it now
How it used to be
Tortured by scenes
In your heart’s memory

It’s not like that anymore
You draw the contrast
You feel the knife
You make a vow

Next time for sure, next time
You’re gonna hold on to your heart

Its not like that anymore
You draw the contrast
You feel the knife
You make a vow

Next time for sure, next time
You’re gonna hold on to your heart

 

You're Stuck With Me

She looks so good and she loves me better
She owns me now cause I wanna let her
I love her big, big, big, big time
She stops my heart, on a dime, on a dime
So afraid that I’m gonna lose her, cause I want her oh so bad
She just laughs and says “ now honey,
I’m the surest thing that you ever had”

CHORUS
You’re stuck with me, boy don’t you know
I ain’t ever gonna let you go
You’re stuck with me and that’s no lie
I ain’t ever gonna say goodbye
Honey, you better get it through your head
You’re struck with me, until you’re dead

She loves it up and she loves it down
She loves to shake it, round and round
She loves it morning, noon, and night
She loves it loose and she loves it when it’s tight, when it’s tight
So afraid that she’s gonna flake, and she’s gonna set me free
She just laughs and says “now honey,
There’s just two sure things,
Death and me”

CHORUS

Holding her sleeping alone in the night,
Whispered “I love you’s” into the moonlight
Like a heart beating
I know she’s waiting for me
I want her to go, but I need her to stay
Softly she’s breathing, it’s so far away
Like a heart beating, I know she’s waiting for me
Cause I hear her say
You’re stuck with me

 

To Kimberly

Kimberly’s lovely, dressed all in white
She sits at the bar on a Saturday night
And waits for her boyfriend who comes when he can
Get away from the wife, who would not understand
Her smile and laughter can’t quite disguise
The bittersweet sadness I see in her eyes
The days become weeks and weeks become years
And harden the heart to a place beyond tears

CHORUS
Kimberly, its better to be alone
Cause nothing’s free, but at least what you’ve got
You can call your own
Kimberly, it just seems to me
That you are what you choose
You’ll be what you’ll be
You’re too good for this
Be true to yourself

Kimberly’s lonely, dressed all in white
Alone in the bed that he visits at night
Sometimes he stays, but mostly he goes
And if she ever cries, nobody knows
The truth is the truth, and in your heart it will stay
You know you can’t change it Kimmie, by turning away
By selling your soul, by trading your pride
Before you know it baby,
Tthere’s nothing left inside

Chorus

It’s none of my business this isn’t my heart
But it’s not for a song, and this isn’t just art
You could be my siste,r you could be my friend
You could be more
Than your self imposed
Dead end

Kimberly
Its better to be alone

 

Good Friends Are Hard To Find

There beside me each and every night
Purring softly as I hold him tight
Lying so that I can’t move
But I don’t mind
Good friends are hard to find

CHORUS

He’s getting older I need to worry more
He’s getting cranky, his legs are very sore
He needs more attention now
Cause time is unkind
But I don’t mind
Good friends are hard to find

By the door he’s waiting
In his eyes I see
The love he’s stating
He follows me onto that favorite chair
It’s filled with hair
I don’t care

Walking through my legs is his favorite game
And when I call, “Smoke” answers to his name
And when he goes, I know I’ll never be the same

Cause a piece of this heart will forever die
And both of these eyes will forever cry
But Smokerboy even this
Even this
I don’t mind
Cause if God gave me the chance
To never have known you,
To never have loved you
The offer would be
Between you and me
Politely, but firmly, declined
Cause good friends and best friends
And any kind of love at all in this crazy world
In this crazy world
Is just too hard to find
Do not go gentle my friend
