Wonít You Stay
Words and Music by Marc Sauceda and David Volk
Arranged by Marc Sauceda and David Volk
Engineered and Produced by: Jeese Kellogg

Story Behind the Song: This song is about the "feeling." Itís kinda hard to explain, but you know that feeling when you lose your wallet and you feel like you have heartburn and the only way itíll go away is if you find it or wait like a week till you forget about it? Yea, thatís what the song is about.

Tell me how life should have treated you, as if I didnít care for the feelings there.
Show me just how I got here. Could it have been the things I said or was it time?

So Wonít You Stay? Youíre just one to ignore till it fades away.
Donít matter much to me.
So wonít you stay? Your just one to ignore till it fades away.

Better From Here
Words and Music by Marc Sauceda and David Volk

Engineered and Produced by Keith Krouse

Story Behind the song: About Lil Daveís ex-girlfriend who was constantly bouncing around from place to place. She always seemed to be moving but never really dealing with the problem she always had. Sweet girl, just so intense.

Forgotten where it started, cause everywhere I go it seems to be the same.
Thereís twisted stories fallin, and I donít know cause I will never hear about.
Thereís something to see cause I know thereís somewhere I belong.
I need to be free and Iím hoping someone will follow me.

Nothing to change and all to arrange itís allright, its allright now baby.
So much to say I canít get away I donít know, I donít know what Iím thinking.

So she canít wait to get back on the road, just to see what sheís missing.
Thereís nothing waiting, sheíll never listen to a single word they say just to see it gets better from here.
He saw her today. Her face is all but changed, theyíll never be the same.
Iím living better days; the sun will always shine as long as I donít hear about it.
Iím walking the streets, to all the places I belong.
So listen to me when I say thereís got to be something wrong.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Ending

Story behind the song: About drunken hookups on late Saturday nights. Thereís a few girls we were joking about while we were writing the lyrics.

Saturday at ten oíclock I seem to be your favorite stop.
Gotta free myself from your disease.
Turn away but understand that all you need is any man
to take you off you your feet.
I think I'm gonna have to put it on, put it on you.
You see thereís only one thing that I, thing I can do.

I know its coming, coming.
There ainít no use in running.
Got to be out of mind .
Thereís always time for coming.
Came all this way for nothing.
To keep from being here.
So baby, take what is mine.
Sunday morning, waking up I canít remember who she was.
Will I see her again? Iíll tell you what, that ain't no lie.

Lie In Fear

Story Behind the Song: There are two versions of this song, one on Daveís Taken Its Hold on Me album and another on FacedDownís More for the Common Good. The first version was this black girl I dated, and the FacedDown version was more about some time I had spent alone.

So can you hear me now?
Cause Iím all by myself, thereís no wanting you here.
Know that time wasnít forgotten.
Cause I still remember, Iím just growing in vain.
And I feel the path within you.
You always told me it would be the way it is now.
But someone should me not to mince the words I say.

As I lie awake here, Iím dreaming how I canít be there.
As I lie awake in fear, I know that your still there.

Iím all by myself because thereís something else,
I feel ordinary.
Iím just trying to be all the things that I see and Iím fading away all my pride and my dreams.
Now I know life ainít what it seems.

It seems my life is not worth anything.
But Iím not trying, no Iím not trying.
