Built to Last

Verse 1

Shadows out in the darkness

Casting that which covers light

It covers light

Streetlights shining on the sidewalks

Casting that which breaks up the night

We need the light

 

Pre-Chorus

Just think of yin and yang

Opposites – meeting on the other half

It’s the perfect kind of plan

It’s the way it all began

When two hears took a chance

That’s when I think about

 

Chorus

Sunday on the phone

And Tuesday was our first date

Thursday I knew for sure

And Saturday we started making plans

It’s funny when you know

And thinks are moving fast

You know you’ve gotta take it slow

Build it good and strong

And know what you have

Will be built to last

 

Verse 2

Laying here in the darkness

Can’t sleep – cause you’re not here

I need you near

Longing – chewing on straws

Drinking – root beer floats on the beach

We need the beach

 

Pre-Chorus

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Wanna take a long walk

Wanna hold you close

Let my feeling show

Wanna take it all in

Tell everyone about how it began

 

Chorus

'Til the Money is Made

Verse 1

Headed into town

All you can hear is the sound

Of blacktop and rubber

I turn the stereo on

I hear the son of a gun

In the worst commercial

I pop in a CD

And that’s alright by me

I’m not used to hearing

Tunes in the morning

All you get is a warning

There’s grid-lock up ahead

 

Pre-Chorus

That’s not what I need in the morning

What I need is to feel the beat of the drums

 

Chorus

Let’s turn it up

Come and try your luck

We ain’t gonna stop

‘Til the money is made

Let’s shake it up

Turn it up a notch

This ain’t gonna stop

‘Til the money is made

 

Verse 2

You pull into the lot

Try to find a spot

Where you won’t get dinged

Don’t find what you need

And so you concede

Cause you’re late already

And then the coffee line

Sucks up more of your time

You begin to wonder

If you still need the kick

Or it you should call in sick

But you’ve already been seen

 

Pre-Chorus

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

That’s not what I need in the morning

That’s not what I need in the morning

That’s not what I need in the morning

But, I had to concede

So…

 

Chorus X2

 

This ain’t gonna stop ‘til the money is made

Derrick Zuber - Lyrics

Album 3: Built To Last

Runaway Train

I’m a runaway train

Going nowhere fast

I’ve got the sun on my brain

But there is nothing but rain

Clouds keep on coming

Obstructing my view

But there ain’t nothing

This poor boy can do

 

Chorus

You gotta hold on fast

But the path’s real slow

Gotta lay me down

Cause it’s starting to snow

Cause I’m a runaway train

 

Verse 2

There’s a long wait in line

Ain’t goin nowhere fast

But I can see the prize

And it fits me for size

Still the clouds keep on coming

Obstructing my view

But that doesn’t stop me

From trying to pursue

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Think fast rewind

Press play in time

You’ll see where it’s

Where it’s gonna go

Think fast rewind

Press play in time

You’ll see where it’s

Where it’s gonna go

Think fast rewind

Press play in time

You’ll see where it’s

Where it’s gonna go – o – o - o

Where it’s gonna go – o – o – o

I gotta lay me down

Cause it’s starting to snow

And I’m losing control

Cause this is out of control

The Shape of My Heart

Verse 1

I didn’t think I could fall so hard

But you were all that I need

In the blink of an eye

With arms open wide

And this was only our first date

We can say what we want

Think what we want

And that’s not a problem baby

And standing here today

That was so far away

But nothing has changed

 

Chorus

You see the shape of my heart

And it’s a love song baby

Love song baby

You’re all that I need

A mystery

How could this be

Well it’s the little things

That make you see

That the shape of your heart

Could make me believe

 

Verse 2

Didn’t think I could laugh again

But it happened right away

Seeing things here with you

And how the time flew

Wondering how this could be

It seems the timing was right

That the stars aligned

So we could capture the moment

This was only the start

When you captured my heart

Moving forward freely

 

Chorus

 

Ending Chorus

You see the shape of my heart

And it’s a love song baby

Love song baby

You’re all that I need

A mystery

How could this be

Well it’s the little things

That make you see

That the shape of your heart

That the shape of your heart

That the shape of your heart

Could make me believe

I Can't Live Without You

Verse 1

I feigned madness

Just to keep me from sadness

And I’m sittin’ right here

I’m sittin’ right here

Forgot all about this

Just to keep me from sadness

And I’m sittin’ right here

I’m sittin’ right here

 

Pre-Chorus

Ain’t nothing but some talkin’ going on

Where I live is in the sadness

And the sadness can’t go on

 

Chorus

I can’t live without you

And that’s a fact

I can’t breathe without your memory

I can still remember

The places we’ve been

But that’s all been lost in memories

 

Verse 2

I’ve got to talk about this

No that’s not selfish

It’s what I’ve got

Like it or not

Though I’ve feigned madness

Just to keep me from sadness

I gotta move on

Gotta keep movin on

 

Pre-Chorus

I guess I’ve gotta stand here

Right beside these railroad tracks

Wait here for my train to come

And never look back

 

Verse 3

I’ve been through the fire

It almost cost me my life there

But I’m standin’ right here

I’m standin’ right here

I’ve been through the sadness

I couldn’t pass it

Now I’m comin home

I’m comin back home

 

Pre-Chorus 2

Ain’t much but talkin goin on

But I can feel the sadness

And it’s part of who I am

 

End Chorus

I can’t live without you

And that’s a fact

I can’t breathe without your memory

I can still remember

All the places we’ve been

But I can see it clearly

It’s inside of me

You’re still with me

Time of our Lives

Verse 1

It was once

It was twice

It was five times

She was mine

 

Chorus

There we were

On our way

Acting like we had nothing but time

What we had, was the time of our lives

 

Verse 2

It was nice

What we had

We had time

We had laughs

 

Double Chorus

There we were

On our way

Acting like we had nothing but time

What we had, was the time

There we were

On our way

Acting like we had nothing but time

What we had, was the time of our lives

 

Bridge

What we had was a summer romance

Locked in the arms of one another

But when those arms shot bullets of love

I got hot real fast

And it cut real deep

And they lodged inside

What we had

What we had

 

Interlude

It was the time of our lives

 

Ending Chorus

There we were

On our way

Acting like we had nothing but time

What we had, was the time of our lives

What we had, was the time of our lives

It was the time of our lives

It was the time of our lives

Looking at my Life

Verse 1

Looking at my life

Seeing what I’ve been through

Seeing where I come from

I can see the light

Shining in the distance

Shining in the present

Time

It’s a long and winding road

To Paradise

 

Verse 2

Looking through the cracks

I see the light shining

Over my shoulder

And what’s next

Don’t know what’s coming

But I ho-o-pe that you’ll be-e

There

It’s a lonely life without you by my

Side

 

Chorus

Babe why can’t we just

Slow down

Let time pass us by

From under the covers

Under the stars tonight

Admire the mystery of your eyes

Beneath the pale moon light

To understand

 

Verse 3

The simple things in life

Is what we need

Trust me my darling

It’s alright

Turn off your phone

Cause where we’re going

We don’t need no satellite

Don’t need no disturbance

We’ll build us a fire

And pour some glasses of wine

To understand

The simple things in life

Is what we need

 

Chorus

Another Saturday Night

Verse

Another Saturday night

It’s all part of the fight

But the beat’s not over

We do whatever we like

We think we’re one of a kind

But we’re all ashamed to see

We all hide from the light

When we are part of the night

Nothing fits together

Looking for ecstasy

When that’s not what we need

To help us find the way

 

Bridge

We all need a taste of something bittersweet

We all need a taste of something new

Don’t need a taste of something in between

But what we have we’ve got to use

 

Chorus

We’re all just satellites moving in orbit

Following something that we can’t see

We’re all just moving on an axis

However close or far we might be

(From what we need)

(From what we need)

 

Verse

 

Bridge X2

 

Ending Chorus

We’re all just satellites moving in orbit

Following something that we can’t see

We’re all just moving on an axis

However close or far we might be

(From what we need)

(From what we need)

(From where we oughta be)

(From where we oughta be)

Beauty in my Mind

Verse 1

I see it again

With age comes beauty in my mind

Though the end is not in sight

Now the waves have rubbed against

Here I stand

Feeling fortunate

For time being on my side

There is a season I recall

Beneath the tide I thought I’d fall

But you were on my side

 

Chorus 1

I see the tide

A think of beauty in my mind

Oh it gives, but it also takes

Arms open wide

There is beauty in my life

Oh, but there is also hate

 

Verse 2

You think you know

When you are young where it will go

But the song remains the same

To see you smile

I see the girl inside

Taking in the simple things

 

Chorus 1

 

Chorus 1

 

Chorus 2

Stars in the sky

There is a lullaby

But, there is no air the breathe

Sun in my eyes

Oh, it shines up in the sky

It will rise, but it also fades,

But it also fades

Seize the Day

Verse 1

You can start, from where you are

Land and sea, wild and free

All in time, you will find

You can start, from where you are

 

Pre-Chorus

You can reach for the stars

No matter how far

Tackle the great divide

Though it is wide

Climb any mountain

Or cross any sea

Or calm the storm

Raging inside

By far and wide

 

Chorus

Seize the day.  You’re a champion

Seize the day.  You’re on fire

All I know, is without you by my side

The world is cold, and does not satisfy

We’re in the dark, lets blaze a spark

Just you and I

Just you and I

 

Verse 1

You can start, from where you are

Land and sea, wild and free

All in time, you will find

You can start, from where you are

 

Pre-Chorus

You can reach for the stars

No matter how far

Tackle the great divide

Though it is wide

Climb any mountain

Or cross any sea

Or calm the storm

Raging inside

By far and wide

 

Chorus

Seize the day.  You’re a champion

Seize the day.  You’re on fire

All I know, is without you by my side

The world is cold, and does not satisfy

We’re in the dark, lets blaze a spark

Just you and I

Just you and I
