Man on the Moon

length: 3:35
composer: Phillip Phillips
lyricist: Phillip Phillips

Oh, oh, oh yeah,
Oh, oh, oh yeah,
Oh, oh, oh yeah

I watch the world from a side of the moon
Looking at the stars, looking back to you
Just to see if your were still alive
Looking at the sun with the fire in your eyes

It's hard to know where I stand
Even a man on the moon couldn't tell me where to land
But, I wanted to fly in the sea with no gravity to pull me down

Hold on it won't take long
You can find yourself if you decide to finally start
Don't run to me when you fall
'Cause the steps getting bigger so we here to walk them all
And you know how I feel
So don't let your life start to slowly, waste away
Uh oh, no no

So tell me this one thing
Now listen to me close
You steal from me but you call it your own
You liar you thieve go make your stand on your own two feet
So oh now, oh now, listen what your friends say
Go now go now go and do it that'a way
I'm the one you want to believe
But in your heart you can't see

Hold on it won't take long
You can find yourself if you decide to finally start
Don't run to me when you fall
'Cause the steps getting bigger so we here to walk them all
And you know how I feel
So don't let your life start to slowly, waste away

Oh, let it fall, let it fall

Hold on it won't take long
You can find yourself if you decide to finally start
Don't run to me when you fall
'Cause the steps getting bigger so we here to walk them all
And you know how I feel
So don't let your life start to slowly, waste away

Home

writer: Greg Holden, Drew Pearson
Hold on, to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave is stringing us along
Just know you’re not alone
'Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
'Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
'Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Gone, Gone, Gone

length: 3:29
writer: Derek Fuhrmann, Todd Clark, Gregg Wattenberg
When life leaves you high and dry
I'll be at your door tonight if you need help, if you need help
I'll shut down the city lights,
I'll lie, cheat, I'll beg and bribe to make you well, to make you well
When enemies are at your door I'll carry you way from more
If you need help, if you need help
Your hope dangling by a string
Ill share in your suffering to make you well, to make you well

Give me reasons to believe,
That you would do the same for me

And I would do it for you, for you
Baby I'm not moving on
I love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you're gone
And long after you're gone, gone, gone

When you fall like a statue
I'm gon' be there to catch you
Put you on your feet, you on your feet
And if your well is empty
Not a thing will prevent me
Tell me what you need, what do you need

I surrender honestly
You've always done the same for me

So I would do it for you, for you
Baby I'm not moving on
I love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you're gone
And long after you're gone, gone, gone

You're my back bone, you're me cornerstone
You're my crutch when my legs stop moving
You're my headstart, you're my rugged heart
You're the pokes that I've always needed
Like a drum baby don't stop beating
Like a drum baby don't stop beating
Like a drum baby don't stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating

For you, for you
Baby I'm not moving on
I love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You would never sleep alone
I love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
Baby I'm not moving on
I love you long after you're gone
For you, for you
You would never sleep alone
I love you long, long after you're gone

Like a drum baby don't stop beating
Like a drum baby don't stop beating
Like a drum baby don't stop beating
Like a drum my heart never stops beating for you
And long after you're gone, gone, gone
I love you long after you're gone gone gone

Hold On

length: 4:11
composer: Phillip Phillips
lyricist: Phillip Phillips
I fall into a sacred rage to escape
The hells of the world made of puppets and fake
Death wont be too far now, the seeds in my heart start to awake
So all I can do is be the man, that the Lord brought me to today (Now oooh)

Hold on to your life my love
And then you'll find what's in and out of line
Just hold on

They say you'll find yourself one of these days
As if they know I'm lost and could never be saved
A gamble is what I'll take trading ashes for gold hoping life will give its sake
Life is too short to stop and stare at the blank page that tells your way (Aah oooh)
Hold on to your life my love and then you'll find whats in and out of line
Just hold on, now no, no
Hold on

Yeahh, ahhh

Tell Me a Story

length: 4:21
writer: Phillip Phillips, David Ryan Harris
Tell you a story and it starts with time
Moves to how you live and learn how to die
Another phase in this world that brings deaths to life
So don't believe in everything you see
Because what you want might not be what you need
Hold your breath jump with me and we'll survive
'Cause you are the sun, that leads me to the light

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

Tell me a story long and true
We aren't what we say we are what we do
Just pieces of a puzzle to find, where we stand
Just confused so you are the moon, that pulls me through the night

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

So you are the sun that leads me
You are the moon that pulls me
You are the light that leads me
You are the moon that pulls me

Get Up Get Down

length: 3:17
writer: Phillip Phillips, Gregg Wattenberg, Derek Fuhrmann
Get up get down get a little bit closer to the scene
Find out, what's there, something new to conceive
Get up get down get a little bit closer to me
Find out what's there what you can be

Yesterday was our time to turn back again
And instead we went through the fire to get lost in sin
Burn baby burn let me cool you down again
Turn baby turn to see where it all begins

'Cause it's alright it's out there
Go and get lost girl
It's alright I'm out there
Let me take control

Get up get down move a little bit closer to the scene
Find out, what's there, something new to conceive eyy
Get up get down get a little bit closer to me, ohh
Find out what's there, what you can be

Walk it off or keep it on
Let it take control of
Every side inside your body each and every bone
Burn baby burn let's cool it down again
Turn baby turn to see where it all begins

Yeah, it's alright it's out there
Go and get lost girl
It's alright I'm out there
Let me take control

Get up get down move a little bit closer to the scene
Find out, what's there, something new to conceive, eyy
Get up get down get a little bit closer to me, oh
Find out what's there, what you can be

Not, na, nana no no
Not, na, nana no no

Get up get down just a little bit
Get up get down just a little bit
Get up get down, let's get lost in this merry go round and round

Not, na, nana no no
Not, na, nana no no
Not, na, nana no no

Get up get down just a little bit
Get up get down just a little bit
Get up get down find out what's there,
Find out baby you and me

Get up get down move a little bit closer to the scene
Find out, what's there, something new to conceive, eyy
Get up get down get a little bit closer to me, oh
Find out what's there what you can be

Get up get down move a little bit closer to the scene
Find out, what's there, something new to conceive, eyy
Get up get down get a little bit closer to me, oh
Find out what's there what you can be

Where We Came From

length: 3:33
writer: Phillip Phillips, Jon Green
I must've used up all my wishes yesterday
'Cause the words we said in anger still echo in my brain
Alone through the darkness in this cave
I wanna hear you whisper
Hang on every word you say

Climb the mountain, swim for shore
Bring it back to how it was before

Take it out, blow it up
Ignite the memory in between us
Through the storm and all the dust
Take it out of these walls with a cannonball
But don’t let it go, don’t give up the ghost
While staring at the moon and the sun
Just trying to remember where we came from

I connect the stars to build a map to you
In the empty space we’re dreaming
Will we still know the truth

Climb the mountain, swim for shore
Bring it back to how it was before

Take it out, blow it up
Ignite the memory in between us
Through the storm and all the dust
Take it out of these walls with a cannonball
But don’t let it go, don’t give up the ghost
While staring at the moon and the sun
Just trying to remember where we came from

Ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh, ohhh ohhh ohhh ohhh

So climb the mountain, swim for shore
Bring it back to what it was before

Take it out, blow it up
Ignite the memory in between us
Through the storm and all the dust
Take it out of these walls with a cannonball
But don’t let it go, don’t give up the ghost
While staring at the moon and the sun
Just trying to remember where we came from
Just trying to remember where we came from

Don’t let it go, don’t give up the ghost
While staring at the moon and the sun
Just trying to remember where we came from

Drive Me

length: 3:49
writer: Ben Neil, Phillip Phillips
All I wonder if my night is gonna change
Lights moving bodies grooving, but I cannot feel a thing
I've got one step to the door
Then I hear auuuuuu
Light gravity pulling me in
I'm sinking in this space within
I can't help but giving in to this stranger with no name
Dancing like a flame, like am moth, I cannot be turned away

Leave me, take me far from here, sweet lady

Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, take a hold of the wheel
Let me drive you crazy
Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, I'll be all that you feel
I'll let you drive me crazy

I love your moves, I like your style
With them hips you drive me wild
I'm the puppet to your strings
You keep on moving me
And the world you keep on turning
Turning from me now
Everything we have is moving down, down, down
We just keep on grooving all down, down, down

Leave me, take me so far from here,
Sweet lady

Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, take a hold of the wheel
Let me drive you crazy
Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, I'll be all that you feel
I'll let you drive me crazy

Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, take a hold of the wheel
Baby let me drive you crazy
Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, I'll be all that you feel
I'll let you drive me

Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, take a hold of the wheel
Baby let me drive you crazy
Do what you do, and do what you will
Let me get down, I'll be all that you feel
I'll let you drive me crazy
Oh say, oh
I'll let you drive me crazy

Wanted Is Love

length: 3:47
composer: Phillip Phillips
lyricist: Phillip Phillips
Lonely in a room, no sound to fill your soul
Hopes and dreams are held so close you can't let go
But you can only see when I look into your eyes
You pulled me in too deep

Take me in, take me out till I'm nothing more
Than words spoken from your sweet, sweet mouth
Dance around like no one can see baby
Move your body with the rhythm
Move your body next to me

Wanted is love
Now go insane
You know you've got to hold onto what you love
Before it's gone away

Wanted is love
Now go insane
You know you've got to hold onto what you love
Before it's gone away

One step to you and I'm sinking in your lies
Only to see the truth hidden behind your evil eyes
And no light could lead me to the way of you
Is it me or am I alone?
It's all such mystery

Wanted is love
Now go insane
You know you've got to hold onto what you love
Before it's gone away

Wanted is love
Now go insane
You know you've got to hold onto what you love
Before it's gone away

Wanted is love
Now go insane, no
You know you've got to seek everything you lost
Before it's gone away

Wanted is love
Wanted is love

Can’t Go Wrong

length: 3:38
writer: Phillip Phillips, Greg Holden, Drew Pearson
I've seen the lights come from the flashes in the dark
I feel like a blind man trying to make a start
And I don't know, no I don't know
Where I'm gonna go

I've seen the sun come up a mile off the ground
Flew back the other way and saw it go back down
I know the days changed but always seem the same
I'll take the best of what I can from my mistakes
And now I know, now I know

I can't go wrong, as long as I remember where I'm from
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear, oh

Never mind all the times I just couldn't wait
I cant remember when it all began to change
Watching the grass grow and die from summer to fall
It's funny how the year passes by and you don't notice at all
I know, I know

I can't go wrong, as long as I remember where I'm from
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear,
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh, oh

I can't go wrong, as long as I remember where I'm from
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance to face my fear, oh

I can't go wrong, as long as I remember where I'm from, oh
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear

I can't go wrong, as long as I remember where I'm from, oh
Hold my head up just to keep it clear
I want a chance just to face my fear, face my fear, ohh

A Fool’s Dance

length: 4:34
composer: Phillip Phillips
lyricist: Phillip Phillips
Raindrop it's the edge of the town it comes more
From the porch to the ceiling
Makes its way down to the floor

But I won't worry, you won't see
I'm right by you, and you by me
As we wake up the night as the thunder roars

Your staircase can never teach me more
Like life I climb I fall just to step once more
You tricked me, fooled me I was yours
Only to act out again, that I did not know

Aah ooh, one night,
Aah ooh, one night and more

Who am I, who are you, what are we anymore?
Just the darkness in my life like a hole in the floor
Won't you take it all the way and I'll take much with the lord
The angels may fall, but never close enough to let me soar

The eagles are flying at closer diner
Guess I don't quit
Just to see if I, still have a chance to live
I played around and around I win for the circle grows on
I guess I'm just another square in this circled world, that we call home

Aah ooh, one night,
Aah ooh one night and more

Who am I, who are you, what are we anymore?
Just the darkness in my life like a hole in the floor
Won't you take it all the way and I'll take much to the lord
The angels may fall, but never close enough to go in my head
Who am I, who are you, what are we anymore?
Just the darkness in my life like a hole in the floor

Won't you take it all the way and I'll take much with the the lord
The angels may fall, but never close enough to let me soar

So Easy

length: 3:41
writer: Pete Amato, Wrabel, Pete Sallis
Like a folly from a tall tree landing on the grass
Like the white sand turns the clock in any hour glass
You're the reason, I believe in something, I don't know

You make it so, you make it so, you make it so easy
This letting go, is so beautiful, 'cause you make it so easy,
To fall so hard, to fall so hard

Like the ocean pulls the tide and just to hold me close
Like a rainbow in a rainstorm makes the flowers grow
You're the reason, I believe in, something I don't know

You make it so, you make it so, you make it so easy
This letting go, is so beautiful, 'cause you make it so easy,
To fall so hard

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, ooh ohh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh ooh, ohh

You make it so, you make it so, you make it so easy, nooooo
You make it so, you make it so, you make it so easy
This letting go, is so beautiful, 'cause you make it so easy,
To fall so hard

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, ooh ohh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh ooh, ohh

You're the reason I believe in something I don't know

Hazel

length: 2:45
You broke my heart and picked the pieces
Threw them in the fire to burn
Left me cold out in the rain.
But now I'm moving on without you baby
Without you by my side
I'm finally feeling free.

But I know that
The sun will shine for me
Even when the skies are grey
And I feel like I'm missing something
But the bridges build their own way

I know you've moved on without me girl
But I still think
How the time moves so fast
I still think of how the world
It goes around and round and round
But it all stopped when you said
Not for now, oh ohhh

But I know that
The sun will shine for me
Even when the skies are grey
And I feel like I'm missing something
But the bridges build their own way

Like the ocean washes
The sand to the shore
You're like the sun that slips away
Lips that taste of an angel
And eyes that bring me to my knees
And a smile that could set me free
Just follow me
Just follow me
Just follow me, yeahh ohh

Wicked Game

length: 4:13
composer: Chris Isaak
lyricist: Chris Isaak
The world was on fire and no-one could save me, but you
It's strange how desire will make foolish people do
No, I'd never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
And I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No, I don't wanna fall in love, no
No, I don't wanna fall in love
This world will break your heart
Nobody's falling in love

What a wicked game to play, to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you, no

No, I don't wanna fall in love, no
No, I don't wanna fall in love
This world will break your heart
Nobody's falling in love

No, I don't wanna fall in love, no
No, I don't wanna fall in love
This world will break your heart
Nobody's falling in love
Nobody's falling in love

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange how desire make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
And I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you, no

No, I don't wanna fall in love, no
No, I don't wanna fall in love
This world will break your heart
Nobody's falling in love

Nobody's falling in
Nobody's falling in love
No, no no, woah, no, no, no, no
