"Digital Vein" (2015)

Heartbeat lyrics - David Cook

I have seen the sun disappear before my eyes
Just above the highest tide, the falling to the ocean line.
And all, I see is smoke, enough to make me choke,
the world feels broken down.

Counting the lines,
the years are screaming louder now
And all the trees start falling down
The brightest lights are burning out
So I, will run through fire
to reach the other side, and turn this life around

And when the moment's dead and gone
With every star I'm wishing on
With every right and every wrong
The lonely nights that take us on
For all the stones I've ever thrown
Another break against the bone
Close my eyes I'm not alone
Let the heartbeat take me home

If there is love, rain it down on everyone
We could break away and run
Like we did when we were young
And we, could make believe
This is all we need
To live for only here and now

So when the moment's dead and gone
With every star we're wishing on
With every right and every wrong
The endless night we sang alone
for all the stone we've ever thrown
we can save this broken bones
close our eyes, we're not alone
Let the heartbeat takes us home
Let the heartbeat takes us home

Criminals lyrics - David Cook

This is a state of emergency
Held down for an eternity, victims
Tell me, are you list’ning
Lets break out of this prison cell
Create stories the world will tell their children
In time, we’ll be forgiven

But tonight, you & I
We can make our escape
From the choices we made
So let’s run, for our lives
Just like we’re animals
Cause, baby, we’re criminals

Spotlights, tracing our every move
Hearts race, breathless and bulletproof, I’ll hold you
Won’t let anybody hurt you
This fight, fell at our footsteps
And I swear, the further that we get, the closer we are
To finding love in these scars

Cause tonight, you & I
We can make our escape
From the choices we made
So let’s run, for our lives
Just like we’re animals
Cause, baby, we’re criminals

Yeah, we’re all against the wall
Looking for a way around
On the run like criminals
Breaking out

But tonight, you & I
We can make our escape
From the choices we made
So let’s run, for our lives
Just like we’re animals

Cause tonight, you & I
We can make our escape
From the choices we made
So let’s run, for our lives
Just like we’re animals
Cause, baby, we’re criminals...

Broken Windows lyrics - David Cook

These two hearts
Are like a house along the fault line
Cut our feet on nails and glass
Walking the slow grind
We locked up our love and we threw away the keys

It's hard to see you through these

Broken windows
Looking so close
Shattered pieces
I can't see through these
Broken windows
We could let go
But I won't give up
If you won't give up

Crumblin' walls and empty holes inside of your eyes
These picture frames that tear away from saying goodbye
But still there's glimpses of the way we used to be

I'm tryin' to see you through these

Broken windows
Looking so close
Shattered pieces
I can't see through these
Broken windows
We could let go
But I won't give up
If you won't give up

We built this place out of blood and bricks
We can still stand up when the world is shaking
Tell me there's a way we can somehow fix these
Broken windows

Broken windows
Looking so close
Shattered pieces
I can't see through these
Broken windows
We could let go
But I won't give up
If you won't give up

Broken windows
Looking so close
Shattered pieces
I can't see through these
Broken windows
We could let go
But I won't give up
If you won't give up

Laying Me Low lyrics - David Cook

I remember when you lit my flame
A bit of pleasure with a pinch of pain
You left me praying for a single drop of rain, oh
But now the fire's burning out of control
Because I'm never gonna let you go
So bring the gasoline and we can start the show, oh

You got under my skin and I can't begin
To think of all the trouble you keep getting me in
So I'll just hold on and try to be strong

But I fall apart when I'm with you
I cry when I kiss you
I know you're really no good
You got my heart in your hand
No, I'll never understand and it shows
You get me high but you're laying me low

Oh whoa oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh

Well I remember every broken line
I'm just the victim of the perfect crime
You keep running while I keep on doing time, oh
So give me something just to keep me sane
I only wanna hear you say my name
Now I know I'm never gonna win this game
But I play anyway

You got under my skin and I can't begin
To think of all the trouble you keep getting me in
So I'll just hold on and try to be strong

But I fall apart when I'm with you
I cry when I kiss you
I know you're really no good
You got my heart in your hand
No, I'll never understand and it shows
You get me high but you're laying me low

Oh whoa oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh
Oh whoa oh oh

And I fall apart when I'm with you
I cry when I kiss you
I know you're really no good
You got my heart in your hand
No, I'll never understand and it shows
You get me high but you're laying me low

Oh oh whoa oh oh
Oh oh whoa oh oh
Oh oh whoa oh oh
(Laying me low)
Oh oh whoa oh oh
Oh oh whoa oh oh
You get me high but you're laying me low

Better Than Me lyrics - David Cook

You ain't even scared
Cause you know I know you will conquer it
Yeah you're finally getting there
I wish I had it all cause I'd offer it

And it feels like a last stop
And it feels like an open wound
Whatever it is that you did to me
It didn't have to be so soon

Go on, go on
Go be better than me
Go on, go on
Go be better than me
Go be better than me
Go on
Go on

Look beneath your feet
The road rolls out in front of you
And your soul to keep
In the arms of Madison Avenue

And it hits like a running train
and it hurts like being alive
If you really gave up
Then why'd you tell me
I've become the shadow
You the light

Go on, go on
Go be better than me
Go on, go be better than me
Go on, go on
Go be better than me
Go be better than me
Go bet better, go be better
Go on
Go on

All the hot lights and the famous streets
It's just the first step in forgetting me

Go on, go on
Go be better than me
Go on, go be better than me
Go on, go on
Go be better than me
Go be better than me
Go be better, go be better
Go on
Go on

Carry You lyrics - David Cook

This lightning’s gonna strike
Right through this heart of mine again, again
’Cause this rain ain’t gonna stop
And we’re feeling every drop
As they keep on dancing on our heads

But you gotta hold on
You gotta be strong
Right here with me if it all goes wrong
To keep you from harm
Away in my arms
Steer you away from the storm

When the sun won’t come around
And your world keeps washing out
I won’t let this love fall down
I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you

So let’s run toward waiting lights
’cause I know there’s better skies ahead, ahead
Sand through an hourglass
This flood is gonna pass
And we’ll still be standing, hand in hand

Oh you gotta hold on
You gotta be strong
Right here with me if it all goes wrong
To keep you from harm
Away in my arms
Steer you away from the storm

When the sun won’t come around
And your world keeps washing out
I won’t let this love fall down
I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you

When the sun won’t come around
And your world keeps washing out
I won’t let this love fall down
I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you

When the sun won’t come around
And your world keeps washing out
I won’t let this love fall down
I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you

From Here To Zero lyrics - David Cook

Here we are at the starting line
Of a race that goes till the end of time
You and I
Take a long deep breath and I'll take one to
As the seconds fade and the minutes move
I'm by your side

Life's a count down that never ends
And the world we know keeps on caving in
We can hold on, I will hold on

[Chorus]
Till the clocks run, till the sun breaks down
I'll be all the love you need
Till the stars turn cold, I'll never let you go
From here to zero

A love we saved for a second look
Like a flower pressed in your favorite book
By the windowsill
We got lost in a passing glance
As the winter frost melting in our hands
And time stood still

Life's a countdown that never stops
Will it all fall down as we count the cost
We can hold on, I will hold on

[Repeat Chorus]

And every point in between
From curtain up to closing scene
(The spot light we've been living in)
I'll never go, I'll never leave
Look in your heart and please believe

[Repeat Chorus]

Till the clocks run out, till the sun breaks down
I'll be all the love you need
Till the stars turn cold, I'll never let you go
From here to zero

Kiss & Tell lyrics - David Cook

I, I’m never really awake
You take it all away until my will begins to break
You, you’ve got me in your sights
You’re doing something right ’cause all I see is blue tonight

Yeah, we’re lost in the dark and we’re praying for light
Reaching out for a heart where the beat never dies
Yeah we’re crossing the line between heaven and hell
I’ll never kiss and tell
Now we’re facing the flood and it’s rising fast
We keep holding our breath ’til we both collapse
Lying still in the place right where our bodies fell
But I’ll never kiss and tell

I, I feel my pulse increase
Do anything you please as long as I can hear you breathe
We, we’re losing all control
I thought we had it all but now your lips are turning cold

Wait For Me lyrics - David Cook

I’m as drunk as the morning sun
A ball of fire and I’ve just begun
To drink you in
Another picture in a broken frame
And I remember I’m the one to blame
Where do I begin?

‘Cause I’ve been crying salt into an open wound
Since I don’t remember when
So as I slowly open up my eyes
Oh, I can see you on the other side
The other side

[Chorus:]
No matter where you go
Yeah, will you let me know?
Will you wait for me?
Wait for me
More than I ever knew
Yeah, all I need is you
Will you wait for me?
Wait for me

Falling faster by the afternoon
Connecting dots around the black and blue
It’s sinking in
And I can smell you on my pillowcase
But I may never get to see your face
Here again, no

So I’ll keep crying salt into this open wound
Until I feel again
And if I ever open up my eyes
Will I see you on the other side?
The other side

[Chorus]

So I’ll keep dying slowly from this open wound
Until you come home again

[Chorus 2x]

I’m as drunk as the morning sun
A ball of fire and I’ve just begun
To drink you in

I'm Gonna Love You lyrics - David Cook

Something still comes over me
Just a chill on a winter breeze
Standing in the cold debris
Left behind a memory

Every word that left your lips
Left behind your fingerprints
Every crime that love commits
Brings you right back here to this

I only want to be remembered
Being the one who always stayed
I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you endlessly
I’ll never be wanting you surrender
As long as you’re standing next to me
Coz I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you endlessly

No escaping this embrace
Everytime I see your face
Around the love I can’t erase
Wouldn’t want to anyway

I only want to be remembered
Being the one who always stayed
I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you endlessly
I’ll never be wanting you surrender
As long as you’re standing next to me
Coz I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you endlessly

Ooooh

I only want to be remembered
Being the one who always stayed
I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you endlessly
I’ll never be wanting you surrender
As long as you’re standing next to me
Coz I’m gonna love you
I’m gonna love you endlessly

Wicked Game lyrics - David Cook

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

No, I don't wanna fall in love
No, I don't wanna fall in love
With you

What a wicked game you played
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 make me dream of you

And I wanna fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I wanna fall in love
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you

No, I...
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)

The world was on fire
and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire would make
foolish people do

Home Movies (Over Your Shoulder) lyrics - David Cook

Chasing ghosts in a hotel parking lot
'Round and 'round till the stars go out.
Never knowing that the best we'd ever get
Was in the here and now.

Just another old home movie
With no sound but it's deafening.
Chasing ghosts in a hotel parking lot
Till the frame burns out.

Looking over your shoulder
You never get any older
Every memory's come and gone
I can't believe it's been so long.

If I could cover the distance
Would it make any difference
With all the sorrow and the joy
Frozen in the celluloid?
Looking over your shoulder
(oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh)
(oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Looking over your shoulder

Thoughts blur every time I look away
Is it you or the alcohol?
Hanging on like a death row innocent
Waiting for the call.

I don't know what I'm looking for
A light shining through an open door?
But it's enough just to have you here again
Living on the wall.

Looking over your shoulder
You never get any older
Every memory's come and gone
I can't believe it's been so long

If I could cover the distance
Would it make any difference
With all the sorrow and the joy
frozen in the celluloid?
Looking over your shoulder
(oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh)
(oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Looking over your shoulder

(oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh)
(oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh)
(oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Where Do We Go lyrics - David Cook

We're counting circles
Around and around until we're down on the floor
What were we put here for?
We keep on burning
A hole in the ground
We're reaching out for more
Can't see the fight in the war

If the light leaves our heart
Do we know where to start?

Whenever the sun goes down
Where do we go?
When all of the leaves turn brown
Where do we go?
With every step that we're taking to the brink
We're cutting ties like a puppet from a string
So whether we're lost or found
Where do we go?

Before the sky falls
From Heaven to ground
We've got to run for our lives
Inside of innocent eyes
But when the night calls
We're tearing it down
Until the smoke can rise
We are the warning signs

When the light leaves our heart
Will we know where to start?

Whenever the sun goes down
Where do we go?
When all of the leaves turn brown
Where do we go?
With every step that we're taking to the brink
We're cutting ties like a puppet from a string
So whether we're lost or found
Where do we go?

By the time the music starts we'll fade away
We'll be in the trenches making our escape
Chasing fireflies like bullets to the brain

When the light leaves our heart
Will we know where to start?

Whenever the sun goes down
Where do we go?
When all of the leaves turn brown
Where do we go?
With every step that we're taking to the brink
We're cutting ties like a puppet from a string
So whether we're lost or found
Where do we go?

Wherever you go
Oooh, oooh

Firing Squad lyrics - David Cook

This is our manifesto
We’ve given all the best to you
Like it was the least that we could ever do
We’re soaked in gasoline while
You watched as everything just burned
Letting your lighter do the dirty work

You better hold your ground
The end is starting now
So load your gun
A war is coming

We are all
Against the wall
Won’t be the ones that time forgot
If it’s our fate
We’re not afraid
Oh we can face your firing squad

This is our revolution
Too late for absolution now
Nothing could ever put this fire out
The calm before crescendo
The quiet night before the storm
Do you remember what you’re fighting for?

You’ve covered our eyes in blindfolds
But light always finds its way back in
So go on and raise you rifles
And fire… fire… fire…

We are all
Against the wall
Won’t be the ones that time forgot
We’ll wear the stars
Like battle scars
So give us everything you got
If it’s our fate
We’re not afraid
Oh we can face your firing squad
