Track Name: Rockets
Rockets
August - September 2013
Roy Williams IV

[Verse 1]
Don't get too close,
That way nobody gets hurt.
Yeah, I'm alone,
But then it always starts again:
Life's just a freight train coming in.
That's just the way it's always been.
You can take a stand or let it in.

[Chorus]
Someday,
Maybe we can take a rocket,
Leave the world and all its people spinning.
Baby,
Don't just waste your time,
I can give you mine.
I wanna give you mine.

[Verse 2]
Take it slow,
Or else you'll miss the ending.
I don't know,
We never break until it shows.
Life's just a story with some holes.
Honey, that's the way it goes.
You can fill them in or let it go.

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Up in space you can go far,
Don't take your keys,
Won't need your car.
Don't have to shine to be a star
With me.

There's only so much you can be.
We might get lost, but then you'll see:
We'll sing in two-part harmonies.

[Tag (?)]
We'll sing:
La, la, I'll always be with you.
La, la, I'll always be with you.
La, la, I wanna be with you.
(Repeat)

[Slowed down version of Chorus]

Track Name: Better Now
Better Now
Roy Williams IV
4/20/2014

[Verse 1]
I know you,
You think you've lost all your hope.
I know better now

You know me,
I'm the one who wants to be there for you right now.

[Pre-Chorus]
But, everyone says,

It's too hard to wake up from the gloom we're living in.

It's too hard to make up for all my years of sin.

[Chorus]
But, you and me know better now.
You and me know better.
You and me will make it somehow.
You and me know better.

[Verse 2]
You'll make it through,
Despite the world, we'll make it.
I can show you how.

I'll make it too,
Despite the pain, I'll break it.
No more falling now.

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Still, my head is screaming,
"Why, oh why, oh me!"

Oh, but my heart is dreaming.

Quiet now.

Quiet now.

You're free.

You're free.

[Tag]
We know better now.
You know better now.
I know better now.

I feel so much better now.
Track Name: Picture Of You
For You/ Picture of You
Nov. 4, 2013

[Verse 1]
It's been so long since I've felt this way,
Picking up the pieces of my heart,
Trying to glue the pieces back in place.
It made a picture of you.
They made a picture of you.

Trying to come back in view,
Trying to put the past where it should stay.
Not sure I know what to do,
Not sure I know exactly what to say.

[Pre-Chorus]
There's noone else like you.
You've got me talking in my sleep,
You've got me lying wide awake,
You've got me thinking of you,
I think I know what to say.

[Chorus]
You're intelligent,
And you always make me laugh,
You always make my day,
You make me wish that life would last.

(First Time)
You're unsinkable,
I've never seen you down.
(First Time)

(Second Time)
And you're beautiful,
You turn me upside-down.
(Second Time)

And when you smile,
Oh, when you smile,
I just can't catch my breath. (/I know I'll be OK. (Second Time))

[Verse 2]
Watching leaves on a windy day,
Watching as the leaves just swirl around,
Watching as they fall right into place.
They made a picture of you.
They paint a picture of you.

Trying to show just how I feel,
Trying to draw the lines where they should stay.
Don't want to do wrong by you,
Don't want to do wrong in what I say.

[Chorus]

[Tag]
I don't care if I never catch my breath,
I don't care if I never catch my breath,
All I know is that you make me happy.
You make me happy.
Track Name: The Shore Is Just Around The Bend
The Shore Is Just Around The Bend
May 5, 2015
Roy Williams IV

[Verse 1]
I know you've been trying so hard to fight the pressure,
You've been fighting to break the chain all by yourself.
Fact is, your head is filled with dreams of past aggression,
Throwing daggers to try and strike you where you stand.

[Chorus]
Hold your head up high,
And look them in the eye,
You're not done,
The shore is just around the bend.

[Verse 2]
You know, I've been trying so hard to break the pressure,
I've been waiting so long for you to take my hand

[Chorus]
Love, you know I try to hold my head up high,
Tell me please,
The shore is just around the bend.

[Tag]
The water and the sand,
Let the sunset pull you in,
Oh, the edge that never ends.
The shore is just around the bend.
Track Name: The End
The End

Don't ever tell me that you're giving up,
That you've had enough,
That you've had enough.

Cause' I'll be there when the going gets tough,
Just pack your stuff,
We'll take a bus.

Even though it's hard to see an end,
It comes down to the wire,
You look for friends,
Even though you're scared to try again,
Know I'll be here till' the end.

Don't ever tell me that you're out of love,
That you spilled your cup,
That you're down on luck.
Cause' I'll be there to fill you up,
Just pack your stuff,
We'll work on us.

Even though it's hard to see an end,
It comes down to the wire,
You look for friends,
Even though you're scared to try again,
Know I'll be here till' the end.

In the end,
It's your choice,
To keep it quiet or find your voice.

In the end,
You have a choice,
To keep it quiet or go and find your voice.

Even though it's hard to see an end,
It comes down to the wire,
You look for friends,
Even though you're scared to try again,
Know I'll be here till' the end.

I'll be here till' the end.
