On And On

Album: Everyday Demons (2009)
  • Waking from a dream, will it disappear?
    Can you look me in the eye and tell me do you see a trace of fear?
    Crawling out of bed in my head I can't handle the day
    I was hoping for release, oh give me peace or just get out of my way

    On and on and on and on we fly, I live and I laugh and I cry
    So doctor take a hammer to my broken heart
    Won't you tell me why I've got trouble on my mind?

    Tried to read the meaning of a song on a spent coffee cup
    It said life's a contradiction, holy water from a dirty jug
    Tried impressing honeys with the monies that I already spent
    Crying to a hobo I'm in trouble 'cause I ain't got no rent

    You ever feel they are dragging you under
    Premonition I'm going
    I hold on 12 but they dealt me a king to deny

    On and on and on and on we fly, I live and I laugh and I cry
    Hey, doctor take a hammer to my broken heart
    I will show you why I've got trouble on my mind?
    On my mind, on my mind

    We could have it all, we could have it all
    We could have it all but it's falling through our hands
    Help me to understand, oh help me to understand

    On and on and on and on we fly, I live and I laugh and I cry
    Hey, doctor take a hammer to my broken heart
    For I'm wondering why I've got trouble going

    On and on and on and on we fly, I live and I laugh and I cry
    So doctor take a hammer to my broken heart
    Won't you tell me why I've got trouble on my mind? Writer/s: CORMAC NEESON, CORMAC SEAMUS NEESON, JAMES HEATLEY, MICHAEL WATERS, MICHAEL JOHN GERARD WATERS, PAUL MAHON, PAUL DAVID MAHON
