Oh, that sinking feeling My best laid plans have gone to waste, really leaves a bitter taste There's no concealing Disappointment's on the rise, should have come as no surprise I tried to have it all, now I'm destined for a fall There's no end to all my grieving Is it any wonder, why I'm going under Oh, that sinking feeling Oh, let me tell you 'bout that sinking feeling So far gone, all my dreaming I bet my hopes on a better day, hope is gone and its time to pay For all my scheming Risked it all on a whim, future's looking mighty grim Will the time come back around, to get my feet on solid ground Gone are the days of free wheeling Is it any wonder, why I'm going under Oh, that sinking feeling That sinking feeling That sinking feeling Tight rope walking over deep quicksand No one wants to lend a helping hand I was sailing through life, 'til I struck a reef Drowning in sorrow, no sign of sweet relief Oh, that sinking feeling My best laid plans have gone to waste, really leaves a bitter taste There's no concealing Disappointment's on the rise, should have come as no surprise I tried to have it all, now I'm destined for a fall Gone are the days of free wheeling Is it any wonder Is it any wonder Is it any wonder why I'm going under Oh, that sinking feeling

I've been under the impression We had a little kind of thing going on A touch and a kiss, a wink and a smile These stolen moments linger long, after you're gone But lately I've been wondering, where do I stand If I figure in your future 'Cos the spell you've put me under, means I'm going nowhere Until I know your answer That's why I'm layin' it on the line Won't you tell me if you'll be mine Said I'm layin' it on the line Do you want me to stay, or do I walk away If you say so, I'll be your hear and now I swear we'd never part But if you say no, don't let me down gently I need to make a brand new start I'm losing my handle on the situation I'm constantly astounded by the life you lead I image your world is a beautiful place Can you imagine a place in it for me I'll let you call the shots, take it or leave it But I just need some relief The waiting is killing me, don't leave me hanging on Or lead me along with some false belief Higher, higher higher baby That's why I'm layin' it on the line Won't you tell me if you'll be mine Said I'm layin' it, layin' it on the line Do you want me to stay, or do I walk away Do I hold you tight, or do we say goodnight Layin' it, Layin' it Layin' it, Layin' it Layin' it, Layin' it (I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta know) Layin' it, Layin' it, , Layin' it on the line Layin' it, Layin' it (this time I really got to know) Layin' it, Layin' it Layin' it, Layin' it

Reaching out, reaching out For a helping hand Standing tall, alone just like an island 'Cos I had nobody to trust or to rely on Now I can't make it over to the other side And all that's left is my foolish pride Reaching out, reaching out For a helping hand Try to make you understand I wanna be a better, loving, stronger man Knew all the answers but I never knew the questions Shoot the messenger, never learn the lessons To lonely days and trying nights I had become resigned All I needed was just one good friend, to help me change my mind Reaching out, reaching out For a helping hand Try to make you understand I wanna be a better, loving, stronger man I see the signs in you, they shine so painfully You're hiding in the shadows of aching memories In isolation it's so hard to stay strong Let me hold you in these arms of mine, I wanna keep you warm So I'm reaching out, reaching out For a helping hand Try to make you understand I wanna be a better, loving, stronger man And I won't stop until I show you that I can Reaching Reaching out for a helping hand

Conspiracy 03:23
Lines are getting blurry, soon they’ll disappear Something funny’s going on in this atmosphere Need to keep my level head on, sharks are gathering There’s a darkness in the water, time to sink or swim It’s a conspiracy, how you got me on my knees And you can silence me, but I won’t let you ‘Cos the truth is on my side And I’m a man of good intentions And I’m laying my foundation ‘cos I’m gonna make my revelations There’s a thousand million secrets I’m uncovering Digging deeper, further reaching than it’s ever been All I have are my convictions, and I’m discovering That the more I see, the less that I’m believing in It’s a conspiracy, how you got me on my knees And you can silence me, but I won’t let you ‘Cos the truth is on my side And no one else will mention Or bring to their attention And I’m a man of good intentions And I’m laying my foundation ‘cos I’m gonna make my revelations It’s a conspiracy, how you got me on my knees And you can silence me, but I won’t let you ‘Cos the truth is on my side And I’m a man of good intentions And I’m laying my foundation ‘cos I’m gonna make my revelation It’s a conspiracy, I’m singing now

Everybody says I’m wrong They just don’t understand my song But I’ll keep up the fight ‘Cos I know I’m right Everybody says I’m wrong Tryin’ to keep it going for so long Said I’ve wasted my youth But they don’t know the truth I keep waiting for the day All my troubles roll away But like they ever changing dawn They just keep on rolling on and on and on and on and on... Everybody say I’m wrong And that’s what makes me strong To myself I’ve guaranteed One day I’ll finally succeed One day I’ll finally succeed One day I’ll finally succeed One day I’ll finally succeed
