Blind heart.gif . This folder has been dead for a while. Scott is doing a good job providing updates on his life and career through his myspace and Twitter, so you can keep updated there.

I received his lovely pre-Idol album a couple of weeks ago, so here I come with full lyrics for all its songs in case anyone may find a use for them later. There's also a neat explanation for the lyrical and musical concept of the album written by Scott on his official site, so feel free to read it.


Enjoy!


Keep the Lines Open

I can't count the times that I
Misunderstand
Things that you said
I shouldn't get wrong
You promised we'd see this through
But some things have changed
We're not the same
Do you belong?

We'll keep the lines open
So both of us know when
It's time to move on with our lives
We're better off knowin'
Where romance is goin'
We'll keep the lines open tonight

We were caught up in fantasy
Blinded by love
Ignorant of
The problems around
It's time to get over this
Faced with the truth
What would you do
Swim or go down?

We'll keep the lines open
So both of us know when
It's time to move on with our lives
We're better off knowin'
Where romance is goin'
We'll keep the lines open tonight

I'm always here
Don't be afraid
It's only instinct to hide from the rain
If we speak our minds
Before it's too late
We'll save ourselves from the worst of the pain

We'll keep the lines open
So both of us know when
It's time to move on with our lives
We're better off knowin'
Where romance is goin'
We'll keep the lines open tonight



Somewhere Else

I'm a man of second chances
Place the blame on circumstances
I know I can't expect a love without pain
Common sense has brought us this far
But I can't this from where you are
Someone tell me am I going insane?

I don't know what else to do
And I hate to break this to you

I am not the answer to your prayer
I know it's strange to give up where we are
We've come so far
Try and get a hold yourself
You're gonna find a love that's true
And your search has only just begun
You'll find the one
He's waiting for you somewhere else

Let it go, don't try to fight it
If we're meant to be united
It'll happen and I'll know I was wrong
Don't make this harder than you have to
There's another who will have you
You'll discover one you've loved all along

I am not the answer to your prayer
I know it's strange to give up where we are
We've come so far
Try and get a hold yourself
You're gonna find a love that's true
And your search has only just begun
You'll find the one
He's waiting for you somewhere else

Let the things we've taught each other
Be your consolation when I'm gone
You know that cryin' gets you nowhere
So get off the floor, it's time to move on

I am not the answer to your prayer
I know it's strange to give up where we are
We've come so far
Try and get a hold yourself
You're gonna find a love that's true
And your search has only just begun
You'll find the one
He's waiting for you somewhere else


Silver

She comes out late at night
Just when the moon is right
The beams fall on her hair like moon dust
And I am standing there and I cry
Silver, silver, silver all around
Silver moments come and go
So I hold on to what I've found

She walks on silver paths
And silver trees shine down on silver hair
She lives in silver splendor
Silver lines her beauty everywhere

I've searched this land for years
High and low and far and wide
If there's one thing I have learned through my tears
Sometimes there's more than meets the eye

Silver, silver, silver like a sea
That's flowing faster, flowing wider,
Shining brighter, now I see

She walks on silver paths
And silver trees shine down on silver hair
She lives in silver splendor
Silver lines her beauty everywhere

She walks on silver paths
And silver trees shine down on silver hair
She lives in silver splendor
Silver lines her beauty everywhere


How Long Will You Deny

I never thought there'd come a day
I'd find someone like you
You know you knock me head over heels
You won't confess you feel the same
Even though it's true
Forget your pride and tell me how you feel

Those you've told would testify
That your love for me abounds
When it's put to you, you're just too good for that
All your friends were poking fun
At the way you hang around
If you're really close you were sitting on my lap

There's no question in my mind
About the things you might have said
Until you give up on your denials
There's no way to move ahead

Baby, tell me
What have you got to hide
Maybe it's time you
Showed me what's kept inside
Cause you've spent long enough
Playing with my mind
It's not good for us, and you're obvious
How long will you deny?

There's been so many times
We've swum the rising tide
Off of the California dunes
You let me hold you in the waves
Your cheek was touching mine
We give up standing and let the waves consume

I see right through your disguises
Every little bit
There's no point in hiding
What you might as well admit

Baby, tell me
What have you got to hide
Maybe it's time you
Showed me what's kept inside
Cause you've spent long enough
Playing with my mind
It's not good for us, and you're obvious
How long will you deny?

I know you
Wanna really tell me down deep inside
You want me
Maybe all you need is a little time

Baby, tell me
What have you got to hide
Maybe it's time you
Showed me what's kept inside
Cause you've spent long enough
Playing with my mind
It's not good for us, and you're obvious
How long will you deny?


Dream World

Two ways to go and I'm in the middle
She's give and take a little
Cause there's no one whose ever got it all
In the back of my mind the issue that presses
More than the low-cut dresses
Is the way she's always in between
What is for real and what is just a dream?

She lives in a dream world
Nothing is real
Life is so much better than this
She may be a dream girl
One in the whole world
But she fades with every kiss

She'll break a date and never regret it
She likes to live on credit
Cause her money's always somewhere else
She wants to drive the Indy five speedway
Now she's the star in Gypsy
I just stand and sigh
She'll fit me right in after the joins the FBI

She lives in a dream world
Nothing is real
Life is so much better than this
She may be a dream girl
One in the whole world
But she fades with every kiss

I wouldn't change a single thing about her
Except for the way she always changes her mind
The more I try to get to know her
She's harder to find

She lives in a dream world
Nothing is real
Life is so much better than this
She may be a dream girl
One in the whole world
But she fades with every kiss


Hard to Be Away

I wake up ever morning
To a picture of you
That sits on a table by the bed
The sunbeams bathe the faces
As it catches my eye
Taken on the last day we spent

And I've told you many times
You're everything to me
But I wonder if you know

Cause it's hard to be away from you
I treasure all the memories I have to see me through
And I know there's nothing I can do
Pretend to end the story
That you'll be waiting for me
It's hard for me to be away from you

You brought out the best in
All my dreams and my fears
Showed me that I could stand on my own
But I miss the way you used to
Bring a smile out of tears
Never had to face the world alone

And I've told you many times
You're everything to me
But I wonder if you know

Cause it's hard to be away from you
I treasure all the memories I have to see me through
And I know there's nothing I can do
Pretend to end the story
That you'll be waiting for me
It's hard for me to be away from you

It's never been so hard to be away from you
I treasure all the memories I have to see me through
And I know there's nothing I can do
Pretend to end the story
That you'll be waiting for me
It's hard for me to be away from you


Who Am I

My inbox is empty, no message for me
I think I'm finally beginning to see
The traces of something that went unbeknown
I was too busy with thoughts of my own

Thought I had control of my life
I woke up to find I'd crossed a line

Who am I to sit and wonder
Wonder why I'm goin' under
It's not right to say
That all of this could happen to somebody else
When I don't even know myself

Silence is golden I've heard them say
Bot how does something golden cause so much pain?
I can't get over the way my heart lies
I'm in too deep to rationalize

Thought I had control of my life
I woke up to find I'd crossed a line

Who am I to sit and wonder
Wonder why I'm goin' under
It's not right to say
That all of this could happen to somebody else
When I don't even know myself

I'm a million miles across the border
Of what I've feared all along
It can take awhile to get life in order
When you realize the only thing
You've ever loved is gone

Who am I to sit and wonder
Wonder why I'm goin' under
It's not right to say
That all of this could happen to somebody else
When I don't even know myself


Lost in a Meadow

Freedom from pain is a thing to be sought
That only exists in my mind
I try so hard to make life what's it's not
Pretending it's easy to find

The sky is forever, the fields are wide
We'll spend an hour or two
All that it takes is the look in your eyes
I'm lost in a meadow with you

All far too often we're treading through life
Drowning each day in despair
But I know a place where each moment in time
Resembles a lock of your hair

The sky is forever, the fields are wide
We'll spend an hour or two
All that it takes is the look in your eyes
I'm lost in a meadow with you

We can search forever and never find
What we're chasing forever is a better life

We can search forever and never find
What we're chasing forever is a better life


Something to Say

How's it going, it's been awhile
It's nice to see you
Where have you been for so long?
I thought you were gone
You know my life would bore you
You mind if I pour you a cup?
We could talk about
The weather for a minute or two
Then we'd get tired of that
And I will ask
What are you doin' tomorrow
You mind if I call you up?

Our conservation goes on
Things are moving along
Until my small talk is gone
How 'bout the headlines today
After a little bit more
I'm lookin' straight at the door
It's getting awkward and I'm feelin'

I need something to say
I'm in deep when I'm out of words
Something to say
To get me out when the pause occurs
I know that anything is better
Than a silence I cannot make go away
I need something to say

Life can take you to places where you
Have never been before
Like when a friendship turns into
Something more
So unexpectedly
You never see it comin'
I'll admit the slightest bit
Of what I'm feeling
Cause I've been known for being
Somewhat forward
Just one word and my heart's runnin'

Suddenly we embrace
Tears are washing your face
I could never replace or love another this way
No one is saying a word
I kind of feel like I should
You know that I didn't plan for this

I need something to say
I'm in deep when I'm out of words
Something to say
To get me out when the pause occurs
I know that anything is better
Than a silence I cannot make go away
I need something to say

And when I finally find the words
My stroke of genius has occurred
Just a moment too late

I need something to say
I'm in deep when I'm out of words
Something to say
To get me out when the pause occurs
I know that anything is better
Than a silence I cannot make go away
I need something to say


My Kristen

The moment you walked into my life
I knew I wouldn't waste time
Something about you made me feel so at rest
I felt a peace in my mind

Things happen so fast
Before you know it it's begun
Let's make it last forever
Before this lifetime is done

My Kristen, do you realize
There's no star that matches the stars in your eyes
My Kristen, a life like this
Just feels so right, there's no one like
My Kris

The other night as you lay sleeping so sound
I had the chance to come by
I took your hand and knelt down close to your bed
I got to kiss you goodnight

Your eyes were closed so tightly
Sweet slumber and dreams
This searching heart
Has found an angel it seems

My Kristen, do you realize
There's no star that matches the stars in your eyes
My Kristen, a life like this
Just feels so right, there's no one like
My Kris

This world will never stop spinning
As long as you're near, as long as you're here
It's all those little things we say to each other
It's all those simple tender glances we share

My Kristen, do you realize
There's no star that matches the stars in your eyes
My Kristen, a life like this
Just feels so right, there's no one like
My Kris


Sweet Dreams

We can dream forever about the heavens
Count the stars in the skies
We can dream about forever
Cause forever never dies
I have found a perfect world
That I go to in the night
Cause I need something to hold onto
Until you are by my side

Sweet dreams take flight
Sweet dreams tonight
When there's nothing else to think about
And nothing else to say
Sweet dreams take flight
Sweet dreams tonight
Wherever you are
I know you're not far
You're only a dream away

Dreams are all I have to live by
So the memories remain
It's been a long time since I saw you
But I hope you're still the same
And no matter how I wait
For the day we meet again
All I do is close my eyes
And you come walking in

Sweet dreams take flight
Sweet dreams tonight
When there's nothing else to think about
And nothing else to say
Sweet dreams take flight
Sweet dreams tonight
Wherever you are
I know you're not far
You're only a dream away

If an illusion's all you really are
It's all a big mistake
Cause dreams are all we're living on
And it's the reason hearts will break

I've been dreamin' for a while now
And my dreams are almost gone
My situation seems more hopeless
As the countless nights drag on
All the dreams that could have saved us
Are but shadows of the past
But maybe there's another
Whose love can hope to last

Sweet dreams take flight
Sweet dreams tonight
When there's nothing else to think about
And nothing else to say
Sweet dreams take flight
Sweet dreams tonight
Wherever you are
I know you're not far
You're only a dream away


Silent

I think I know you like a book
Read it through and through
You don't know me though you've looked
Maybe if you knew

Do I have to be silent
Locked inside
The fears of my feelings
For the rest of my life
Someday I'll tell you
How much you mean
But 'till then I'll be silent
And wait to be set free

There's so much more I wanna say
But do I even dare?
I'll go as far as I fell safe
You can find me there

Do I have to be silent
Locked inside
The fears of my feelings
For the rest of my life
Someday I'll tell you
How much you mean
But 'till then I'll be silent
And wait to be set free

Don't know how much longer
I'll keep this inside
My courage grows stronger
Emotions are high
I have been dreaming for
Most of my life

Do I have to be silent
Locked inside
The fears of my feelings
For the rest of my life
Someday I'll tell you
How much you mean
But 'till then I'll be silent
And wait to be set free

^ No problem. The CD wasn't that hard to get actually. I ordered it from Scott himself at a time, but now you can get it along with "Grand Classics" instrumental piano album at CDbaby.com. It's definitely worth the money.

And don't forget to support Scott by buying his "View from Above" EP which will be available Amazon MP3 downloads and iTunes starting tomorrow! original.gif
