Find the Real
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- Find The Real
Album- One Day Remains

Stuck in the middle
I burrow inside
Back to the cradle
Away from the burdens
Of all my crimes
Before it's fatal

The past has found me
The truth come out
Always remember
With no place to fall
But straight down
I must surrender

Well it seems I've finally
Thought of everything
I want to love
I want to feel
Find peace
Find the real

There's a face I put on
All my life
The face of an angel
I look in the mirror
Only to find
The face of a stranger

And all that I've taken
I hunger for more
Cause I'm selfish
And all I'm left with
Is a crown of thorns
And I'm helpless

Well it seems I've finally
Thought of everything
I want to love
I want to feel
Find peace
Find the real

I'll trade these lies for something right
I will kill what hurts with something pure
I will be redeemed so I can breathe again

Well it seems I've finally
Thought of everything
I want to love
I want to feel
Find peace
Find the real

One Day Remains
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- One Day Remains
Album- One Day Remains

As your will is bent and broken
and every vision has been cast into the wind
as your courage crashes down before your eyes
don't lay down and die

'Cause I see in you
More than you'll ever know
And I ask you, "Why
You question the strength inside?"
And you need to know
How it feels to be alive

When every wound has been re-opened
And in this world of give and take, you must have faith
And the distance to your dreams stretch beyond reach
Don't lay down and die
No

Cause I see in you
More than you'll ever know
And I ask you, "Would
You question the strength inside?"
And you need to know
How it feels to be alive...

How it feels
How it feels to be alive...
How it feels
How it feels to be alive...
How it feels
How it feels to be alive...

Cause I see in you
More than you'll ever know
And I ask you, "Would
You question the strength inside?"
And you need to know
How it feels to be alive...
How it feels to be alive...back to top
Open Your Eyes
good song not to hard to sing at all
try singin along with playin the guitar at the same time
challenging but fun

Verse 1
Looking back i clearly see
what it is thats killing me

through the eyes of one i know
i see a vision once let go
i had it all

Constantly it burdens me
hard to trust and cant believe
lost the faith and lost the love
when the day is done

Chorus
will they open their eyes
and realize we are one
on and on we stand alone
until our day has come
when they open their eyes
and realize we are one

Verse 2
i love the way i feel today
but how i know the sun will fade

darker days seem to be
that will always live in me
but still i run

it's hard to walk this path alone
hard to know which way to go
will i ever save this day
will it ever change

Chorus
will they open their eyes
and realize we are one

still today we carry on
i know our day will come
when they open their eyes
and realize we are one

bridge and solo

will they open their eyes
and realize we are one
(its hard to walk this path alone
hard to know which way to go)

will they open their eyes
and realize we are one
(lost the faith and lost the love
when the day is done)

Will they open their eyes
and realize we are oneback to top
Burn It Down
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- Burn It Down
Album- One Day Remains

Drank so much last night
I think that I drowned
But now my cup is empty
No one has seen my will around
Now my heart is aching
Sometimes I fall asleep for days
But my bed is empty
I know I am too set in my ways
Tell 'em all I'm ok

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached its dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new way to carry on

Flew so high last night
I think that I fell to the ground so heavy
Woke up to find this living hell
It used to be so easy
Hard to tell my nights now from my days
The curtains hide my feelings
Don't feel I have any right to pray
And will they find me someday, Someday

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached its dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new way to carry on
So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached its dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new way to carry on

Whatever takes us away
Will be the same to drive us on(2x)
Remember to find a new way
A way to see it all
We're finally slipping away
and soon it will be gone
Remember to find a new day
Remember to carry on

So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached its dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new way to carry on
So burn it down
Discover the dusk of your day
Has reached its dawn
So burn it down
Remember to find a new way to carry on

Metalingus
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- Metalingus
Album- One Day Remains

I've been defeated and brought down
Dropped to my knees when hope ran out
The time has come to change my ways

On this day I see clearly everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all, leave it all behind

I'll never long for what might have been
Regret won't waste my life again
I won't look back
I'll fight to remain:

On this day I see clearly everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all behind

On this day it's so real to me
Everything has come to life
Another chance to chase a dream
Another chance to feel
Chance to feel alive

Fear will kill me, all I could be
Lift these sorrows
Let me breathe, could you set me free
Could you set me free

On this day I see clearly everything has come to life
A bitter place and a broken dream
And we'll leave it all behind

On this day it's so real to me
Everything has come to life
Another chance to chase a dream
Another chance to feel
Chance to feel aliveback to top
Broken Wings
Fight the fight alone
When the world is full of victims
Dims a fading light
In our souls

Leave the peace alone
Now we all are slowly changing
Dims a fading light
In our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
The things we hold
Are always first to go
And who's to say
We won't end up alone

[CHORUS]

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've got to find that meaning
I'll search for so long

Cry ourselves to sleep
We will sleep alone forever
Will you lay me down
In the same place with all I love

Mend the broken homes
Care for them they are our brothers
Save the fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
What you give
Will always carry you
And who's to say
We won't survive it too

[CHORUS]

Set a-free all
Relying on their will
To make me all that I am
And all that I'll be

Set a-free all
Will fall between the cracks
With memories of all that I am
And I'll that I'll be

In Loving Memory
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- In Loving Memory
Album- One Day Remains

Thanks for all you've done
I've missed you for so long
I can't believe you're gone
You still live in me
I feel you in the wind
You guide me constantly

I've never knew what it was to be alone, no
Cause you were always there for me
You were always home waiting
And now I come home and I miss your face so
Smiling down on me
I close my eyes to see

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me

I carry the things that remind me of you
In loving memory of
The one that was so true
You were as kind as you could be
And even though you're gone
You still mean the world to me

I've never knew what it was to be alone, no
Cause you were always there for me
You were always home waiting
But now I come home and it's not the same, no
It feels empty and alone
I can't believe you're gone

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me

I'm glad he set you free from sorrow
I'll still love you more tomorrow
And you will be here with me still

All you did you did with feeling
And You always found the meaning
And you always will
And you always will
And you always will

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts meback to top
Down to My Last
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- Down To My Last
Album- One Day Remains

And to the world to which we sing,
We are honored you let us in
I remember the thoughts of many things,
Of the glory that you bring

I was never the right one to dare to dream,
It's funny what this life has done to me now
You were always the only,
To help me see there was a road I must find,
A road that was mine

But I'm down to my last,
I'm standing here alone
Looking back, on it all
But I'm down to my last,
I'm ready but I'm wrong,
And I'm blind too

And to the world to which we sing,
Want to try to do us in
I remember your name and I know your face
Can't forgive and can't erase

I was never the right one
To bear the weight of something fueled by words
I'd learn to hate
You were always the only
To help me see that to love is to shine
In your world, blind

But I'm down to my last
I'm standing here alone
Looking back on it all
But I'm down to my last
I'm ready but I'm wrong
And I'm blind too

[solo]

But I'm down to my last
Well I'm ready but I'm wrong,
And I'm scared of it all

But I'm down to my last
I'm ready but I'm wrong
And I'm blind too
But I'm down to my last
And I'm ready but I'm wrong
And I'm blind tooback to top
Watch Your Words
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- Watch Your Words
Album- One Day Remains

Watch your words
Or your words might drown you
And cure my wounds
And the light will blind you

To truly see well
You must have faith
Oh the righteous they can't wait
A saving grace
That all we know
Let us pray
Let us hold on

[CHORUS]

I can't breathe
I prefer to find a ceiling
To this hate of mine
I can't win
I can fight no more
I am drowning
And I'm sick inside

Push no more
And the day will find you
Speak no truth
And your ways will end you
It's alright
And you must move on

Though the damage
Has been done
Cherish the life
And the ones you hold
Can you change
Can you go on

[CHORUS]

To truly see well
You must have faith
Oh the righteous they can't wait
A saving grace
That all we know
Let us pray
Let us hold on

Shed My Skin
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- Shed My Skin
Album- One Day Remains

I am not alone
I live with the memories, regret is my home
This is my true freedom
Express all the feelings of what I've become
I watch the rising sun
I hope I find some peace today

It seems I've gone away
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've really lost my way
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've...

Shed my skin
Oh, are you ready for me?
Or purge my love
Oh, are you ready for me?

A bitter sinking feeling
Awake to the fact there's no going back
To this world in which I was living
I'm searching for something but found less than nothing
I watch the rising sun
I hope I find some peace today

It seems I've gone away
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've really lost my way
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've...

Shed my skin
Oh, are you ready for me?
Or purge my love
Oh, are you ready for me?

Yeah, 'cause I'm dying to feel
What I have lost
Oh, and what I was

All my life I've waited
Endless days have taken
Taken what made me free

Years have gone
I'm broken
Left the past unspoken
Those years
Oh, they haunt me still

Shed my skin
Oh, are you ready for me?
Or purge my love
Oh, are you ready for me?
& shed my skin

All my life I've waited
Endless days have taken
what made me free

Years have gone
I'm broken
Left the past unspoken
Those years
They haunt me stillback to top
The End Is Here
Band- Alter Bridge
Song- The End Is Here
Album- One Day Remains

Endless day
We search for what we hold inside
So hard to find
Luck turns
Will the fallen ever reach within
And rise again

[CHORUS]

For the rest of my life
I will find the answers
That were always here
I will find the meaning this time
I will fight the end
Till the end is here

Wasted time
With words that seem to break our will
They blind us still
Without a care
They tarnish what we hold so dear
What was once so clear
