Alter Bridge - Blackbird -Ties That Bind

-

It's worth the sacrifice Way beyond the ties that bind -Come To Life-

Let the highway take us in As we escape the disorder

from it all I’ve been buried alive in a world of constant sorrow Reached out tonight to set me free save tomorrow Another shot I slip into the hate Another night smoking my disgrace So true the lie I’ll raise my glass and run a wasted life what I’ve become LyricsI’ve been buried alive and I don’t want to be here anymore Reached out a thousand times for a hand to pull me from it all I’ve been buried alive in a world of constant sorrow Reached out tonight to set me free save tomorrow Let me breathe again And show me where I begin To find a will to change Before I lose everything I’ve been buried alive and I don’t want to be here anymore Reached out a thousand times for a hand to pull me from it all I’ve been buried alive in a world of constant sorrow Reached out tonight to set me free and I will follow

I tear on the leash That keeps me contained and controlled Let me go I want to break free And bite my way out of this hole One last hope To rise and break away Above the faded line Way beyond the ties that bind This I know The risk is worth the gain It's worth the sacrifice Way beyond the ties that bind I run but the chains Pull me right back to the floor You control I rattle the cage I won’t be your slave anymore Lyrics One last hope To rise and break away Above the faded line Way beyond the ties that bind One last hope To rise and break away Above the faded line Way beyond the ties that bind You broke me into pieces Don’t tell me what to be Damn you all, I'm gonna find my way One last hope To rise and break away Above the faded line Way beyond the ties that bind This I know The risk is worth the gain

This desert road That we call home I say hey throw away the veil of weakness This is our destiny And I mean no life beneath us and they will be We chase the setting sun shamed As we outrun I say hey I won't be held down any longer A life of agony By your disgrace or your dishonour you're to blame LyricsGod how we ache to be free There's nothing we should have to fear It's alright we've come to life I'll never shed another tear It's alright we've come to life I say hey every fool with an opinion But our group is so resilient I will not break I say hey I am not your new messiah And I will not take you higher I'm not ashamed There's nothing we should have to fear It's alright we've come to life I'll never shed another tear It's alright we've come to life We will make a brand new start From the pieces torn apart The break of day is before us Cast your sorrows to the wind Let the highway take us in As we escape the disorder *SOLO* We will make a brand new start From the pieces torn apart The break of day is before us Cast your sorrows to the wind Let the highway take us in As we escape the disorder

Wicked tongues can speak LyricsAnd rewrite history But you can't keep the truth contained Like the song We’ll make our way was sung They'll realize we're one And don't forget We’ll make our way -Coming Homewe're here to stay There's nothing we should have We’ll make our way to fear It's alright we've come to life I'll never shed We’ll make our way As I peel away another tear It's alright we've come to life All the years of pain -Buried AliveI’ve discovered what’s been all along -Brand New StartYou were so right I twist and turn in the darkest space I was so wrong Against the sky Can’t find my way as I learn the pain Every shooting star Streams of light Blast to the sky with a black toothed grin They all fall so hard Call out to me and you A whiskey smile takes me down again They all fade like a played out song We leave as one Now is the time We’ve just begun I’m cold and Before all is lost To find the solace we’re due I’m so free and This is a life we must choose I’m to weak and I’m coming home I cant change I’m coming home We will make a brand new start From the pieces torn apart I’ve been buried alive and I don’t want to be here So I’m coming home The break of day is before us anymore Lost on a road I don’t belong Cast your sorrows to the wind Reached out a thousand times for a hand to pull me I rest my soul I’m so alone

Far from the streets I call my own I’m coming home Rushing back to me LyricsAs the city sleeps So afraid of what I will find Memories they hold From deep inside Every broken man Comes to understand That he’ll never find paradise All that he wants Was there all the time I’m coming home I’m coming home So I’m coming home Lost on a road I don’t belong I rest my soul I’m so alone Far from the streets I call my own And so I’m coming home Back to a world left long ago And now I know I’m coming home I find my way back I’m letting go I’m coming home

Will I find some kind of conviction Or will I bid the hero farewell Will I be defined by things I could have been I guess time will only tell I guess time will only tell So don’t let it be Before tomorrow comes Before you turn away Take the hand in me Before tomorrow comes You can change everything I curse my worth and every comfort That blinded me for way too long Damnit all I’ll make a difference from now on Cause I’m wide awake to it all LyricsCause I’m wide awake to it all So don’t let it be Before tomorrow comes Before you turn away Take the hand in me Before tomorrow comes You can change everything

And there are no more heroes to follow So what are we becoming? Where did we go wrong? Yeah Yeah I want to rise today and change this world Yeah Yeah Oh won't you rise today and change this world? The sun is beating down Are we ever gonna change Can we stop the blood from running? Lyrics Our time is running out Hope we find a better way Before we find we’re left with nothing For every life that’s taken So much love is wasted

Yeah Yeah I want to rise today and change this world Yeah Yeah Oh won't you rise today and change this world? -BlackbirdThe willow it weeps today A breeze from the distance is calling your name Unfurl your black wings and wait Across the horizon it's coming to sweep you away It's coming to sweep you away [Chorus:] Let the wind carry you home Blackbird fly away May you never be broken again The fragile cannot endure The wrecked and the jaded a place so impure The static of this cruel world Cause some birds to fly long before they've seen their day Long before they've seen their day [Chorus:] Let the wind carry you home Blackbird fly away May you never be broken again Lyrics Beyond the suffering you've known I hope you find your way May you never be broken again Ascend may you find no resistance Know that you made such a difference All you leave behind will live to the end The cycle of suffering goes on But memories of you stay strong Someday I too will fly and find you again [Chorus:] Let the wind carry you home Blackbird fly away May you never be broken again Beyond the suffering you've known I hope you find your way May you never be broken again May you never be broken again -One By One-

Yeah Yeah I want to rise today and change this world Does anyone care it ain't right what we’re doing? Yeah Does anyone care it ain't right where we’re going? Yeah We’ve come to find Does anyone dare justify how we’re living? Oh won't you rise today and change this world? What we take for granted Does anyone here care at all? Keeps us alive This world In the end So don’t let it be Only love Some have done their time Before tomorrow comes Can set it right Leave you empty handed Reach out tonight And Before you turn away Take the hand in me Before make amends So I’m coming home Back to the tomorrow comes You can change everything We This world place where I belong I rest my soul I’m so alone Far could be so much more than we are We could be so If only peace from the streets I call my own I’m coming so I’m much more than we are We could be so much more Would never die coming home Back to a world left long ago And now than we are Oh this much I know I know I’m coming home I find my way back I’m Seems to me that we’ve got each other wrong coming home I’m coming home I’m coming home -Rise TodayWas the enemy just your brother all along? -Before Tomorrow ComesI couldn’t sleep I had to listen Into a conscience knowing so well That nothing comes from indifference I look inside of myself The wind is blowing cold Think we lost our way tonight Think we lost our hope to sorrow Feels like were all alone Running further from what’s right Yeah Yeah I want to rise today and change this world Yeah Yeah Oh won't you rise today and change this world?

Underneath the desert sun They bid my brother’s blood to run Many miles away Hell has come today Fire raining from the sky See the face of fear asking one last time Let me get home safe Before it’s too late One by one The brave will fall Life is lost again They gave it all Deep within the castle walls So many grievers’ funeral songs Echo in their sleep Ode to memories The sacrifice of flesh and blood For a promise land that may not be won Let us not forget LyricsThe hero laid to rest One by one The brave will fall Life is lost again They gave it all And they gave it all I price we can’t ignore If their hoping what they died for For every hero gone For every family torn We will honor you forever more One by one The brave will fall Life is lost again They gave it all One by one The brave will fall Life is lost again They gave it all They gave it all -Watch Over You-

Verse 1: Leaves are on the ground Fall has come Blue skies turning grey Like my love I try to carry you And make you whole But it was never enough I must go Chorus: And who is gonna save you when I'm gone And who'll watch over you When I'm gone? Verse 2: You say you care for me But hide it well How can you love someone not yourself? Chorus: LyricsAnd who is gonna save you when I'm gone And who'll watch over you Bridge: And when I'm gone who will break your fall And Fan your flame I can't go on let you loose it all Its more then I can take Who'll ease your pain Ease your pain?

Ohhhhhhh Ohhhhhhh It's too late, the time has come I kept this inside me, for way too long Silence will leave me cold Lost on a highway that never takes me home I wanna step aside I wanna give it up Before I lose it all It's tearing me inside the way you break me Down And there will come a time When I will come undone And you will let me fall I'll leave it all behind before you break me Down The weight of a thousand lies Promises broken, harm me all the time LyricsYou say that you're sure to change But that black heart reveals that You always stay the same I wanna step aside I wanna give it up Before I lose it all It's tearing me inside the way you break me Down And there will come a time When I will come undone And you will let me fall I'll leave it all behind before you break me Down

And you will let me fall I'll leave it all behind before you break me Down -White KnucklesAre you still lost tonight? Living but dead inside This is the proclamation This is the call to rise Are you abused alone Walking with broken bones If you feel you’ve been forgotten Let this song guide you home We are the dissolution We’ve been left wanting more Before every aspiration Hits the floor Hold on for your life All we feel it’s so far from alive The damned their done believing And the cursed dream no more So hold on for your life Because only the strong survive LyricsThey tell you what you should be They sell you to plastic dreams Opinions are all provided But nothing is what it seems I dare you take control Cause empty are hands And bruised are the souls Of those who show no resistance And those who are weak below

[Chorus:] And who is gonna save you when I'm gone And who'll watch over you We are the disenchanted And I will give you strength when you?re not strong And I realise your careless has come and its We die with each passing day Who'll watch over you when I'm gone away harming No one here understands us And I deny the reason I'm falling, yet I'm falling So I say End Verse: So the call Snow is on the ground Hold on for your life Winter's come I wanna step aside All we feel it’s so far from alive You long to hear my voice I wanna give it up The damned their done believing But I'm long gone Before I lose it all And the cursed dream no more It's tearing me inside the way you break me Down So hold on for your life -Break Me DownAnd there will come a time When I will come undone Because only the strong survive How will it feel To

live your life Unto your dying day When nothing is They want to know they’ll be alright real As we sacrifice Bending until we break It’s been All I’m saying revealed Hold on for your life Dreams are not theirs Can we try? to take Dreams are not theirs to take Hold on for To bring the wayward ones back home tonight your life All we feel it’s so far from alive The damned To bring the wayward ones back home tonight their done believing And the cursed dream no more So hold on for your life Because only the strong I Take them back to the start said only the strong survive Let the purest of heart Know their worth is still spoken As they fight to exist -Wayward OneWe neglect and resist Let the cycle be broken And they cry And they call As the wayward walk alone City lights Urban sprawl In a place no one should know Show no grace Show no love These mean streets are meant for none Take them back to the start Let the purest of heart Know their worth is still spoken As they fight to exist We neglect and resist Let the cycle be broken Broken homes Broken lives They repeat themselves in time It’s passed on LyricsDown the line Til we heal the wounds inside It’s not too late To make things right Dress the wounds with love’s pure light Take them back to the start Let the purest of heart Know their worth is still spoken As they fight to exist We neglect and resist Let the cycle be broken They’re still waiting They still cry -We Don't Care At AllCrack the heart with true intentions Blood and scars and no redemption We’ve been a slave to your disaster Lost it all it doesn’t matter And we don’t care at all We got nothing to take on And leave the rest to fall We’re going back where we belong Waste aways amount to nothing But your opinions keep on coming We’re dead inside to your rejection Risk it all and did I mention I’ll say it again I’ll say it again And we don’t care at all We got nothing to take on And leave the rest to fall LyricsWe’re going back where we belong Never doubt it Never question What we were And where we’ve been Scream out loud As our intentions Find a word And we don’t care at all We got nothing to take on And leave the rest to fall

We’re going back where we belong I’ll say it again And we don’t care at all We got nothing to take on And leave the rest to fall We’re going back where we belong -The Damage DoneI won't waste away I won't let this take me down I can't survive As long as I keep it around I wish it would fade But it will just sell me out Over and over and over I cried out loud SOMEBODY SAVE ME… SOMEBODY SAVE ME… THE RACE I RUN I KEEPS ME FOCUSED ON THE MAN I COULD BECOME THE DAMAGE DONE I WANT TO WASH THE FILTH AWAY TILL THERE IS NONE LyricsI run till I break From the way it was killing me Profuse to the day I'll suffer afraid to speak I carry the shame And beg for a remedy How long must I live With the damage of my disease SOMEBODY SAVE ME… SOMEBODY SAVE ME… THE RACE I RUN I KEEPS ME FOCUSED ON

THE MAN I COULD BECOME THE DAMAGE DONE I WANT TO WASH THE FILTH AWAY TILL THERE IS NONE THE RACE I RUN I KEEPS ME FOCUSED ON THE MAN I COULD BECOME THE DAMAGE DONE I WANT TO WASH THE FILTH AWAY TILL THERE IS NONE
