Call It Even – Vertical Horizon

I saw an open door and I looked inside it
But I’d no idea
What you were hiding

So now I’m holding the bag
And it’s heavy
And the conversation stopped
So much for friendly

And if I told you I was not very good
At making small talk when I should
But you have one advantage over me
At times like this I’m lost at sea

[Chorus]
Why can’t I see it for what it really is
And know it like I know my name
And if it’s all the same I don’t like this game
So let’s pack it up
And call it even

Well I’m not the type to speak
Just to hear my voice
And I’m sure you’d hear me out
If you had the choice
But your words keep coming out
Neverending
And I wonder if I’d have to shoutp> And if I told you I was dying of thirst
And the sky was falling just to make it worse
Would you just smile and continue on
As if your mouth had a race to run

[Chorus]

Well I’m glad we had this talk
I feel better
And if I’ve something else to say
I’ll write a letter

And if I told you you were not very good
At hearing others when you really should
Would you just smile and push me away
You can’t be bothered there’s still words to say

[Chorus]

Japan – Vertical Horizon

I saw a young man by a telephone
He was sitting alone in the rain
I said, “Hey, young man what you doing here?”
He said, “Sir, I’m going insane”

See I love an American beauty
But nobody here understands
So he looked to the sky with resentment in his eyes
And said, “Lord, why am I in Japan?”
Lord why am I in Japan?

He told me a story about yesterday
How he walked in the search of a friend
But nobody came to his rescue
So he came to his bitter end

He pulled me close and said
“They all stopped and stared
As I walked down the street alone
And nobody knew my name
Nobody knew my name”

I said, “Young man I know where you’re going
And young man I know where you’ve been
But I’ve been in this land for a lifetime, it seems,
And I’m never to come back again
No, I’m never to come back again

So I turned and I gave him my blessing
And I left him alone in the rain
But I had to just stop and laugh at myself
Still nobody knows my name
Nobody knows my name

Finding Me – Vertical Horizon

I don’t think you notice
When you see my face
I guess you’re waiting
To spin me around again

Wheels I guess are turning
Somewhere inside my head
I know that this is
Deeper than you get

But you’re coming back again
You don’t mean to waste my time
But you’re coming back so

[Chorus]
Don’t tell me
How to be
‘Cause I like some suffering
Don’t ask me
What I need
I’m just fine
Here finding me
Me

I’ve already given
Up on getting through
I never question
Who I’m talking to

Oh so much for nothing
But nothing means so much
I know it’s touching
But I’ve been out of touch

And it’s all that I can do
I’m a sight for my sore eyes
But it’s all I am so

[Chorus]

I don’t think you notice
When I can’t reach out
I guess you’re waiting
On somebody else again

Oh so much for talking
It’s all been said before
I’m hearing something
but I wish you’d just say more

But you’re going off again
When I try to just hold on
But you’re going off so

[Chorus]

Famous – Vertical Horizon

Oh I know
That things are gonna change
The only thing for certain
Is that nothing stays the same
But all I want
Is love from you
Give me your hand
To hold on to
And if tears fill your eyes
Listen to my music it’s no surprise

[Chorus:]
I don’t want to be famous in life
I don’t want to be famous in the world
I just want to be famous
Famous
I want to be famous in your heart

Oh I know
The wind is gonna blow
And in the winter
There’s sure to be snow
But with the warmth of your smile
And the sun of your face
Shine on me in the darkness
With your love and grace
And if time hides my eyes
Listen to my music and recognize

[Chorus]

And if time hides my eyes
Listen to my music
Listen to my music and recognize

[Chorus]
