New Songs: The Lyrics*

*The following are from transcriptions by fans based on fan videos and mp3s from David Cook’s Concert for Hope on April 29, 2011, where he sang the said songs in public for the first time.

Time Marches On
David Cook / Marti Frederickson

I never thought I’d see myself down here
In the same damn place with a different year
I bet the lines on my face never looked so clear
I swear

You were six feet in on a one way street
When you gave me the love with my heart on your sleeve
In a world full of pearls and an endless sea
You were all that I needed, all I needed

Time marches on
Right or wrong
Never waits for no one no,
Can’t turn it off, we’ll make it through
As time marches on without you

If you knew then what you know right now
Would you’ve packed your bags and left this town
Cause I’m still here with my heart on the ground
You were the last thing I needed
All I needed

Time marches on, right or wrong
Never waits for no one no,
Can’t turn it off, we’ll make it through
As time marches on without you

I never thought I’d see myself down here
In the same damn place with a different year

Time marches on, right or wrong
Never waits for no one no,
Can’t turn it off, we’ll make it through
As time marches on without you
Time marches on without you
Time marches on, oh
Time marches on without you

Take Me As I Am
David Cook / Marti Frederickson / Scott Stephens

This is no escape
This is no surrender
My dear
This is my parade
My happy ever after
Only if you’re here
When I’m lost and broken

Take me as I am
Right here where I stand
Open up your arms and let me in
Out here on my own
I know I’m not alone
Let me in your heart
Right where you stand
Take me as I am

We can take tonight
And make it last forever
If you dare
Ooh, we can run away
Take the world together
Only if you care
About these words unspoken

Take me as I am
Right here where I stand
Open up your arms and let me in
Out here on my own
I know I’m not alone
Let me in your heart
Right where you stand
Take me as I am

Give a second chance
We can take tomorrow
Make it better, you and me
Give me one more try
Before we say goodbye
Right here in this moment
Here forever
Everyday

Take me as I am
Right here where I stand
Open up your arms

Take me as I am
Right here where I stand
Open up your arms and let me in
Out here on my own
I know I’m not alone
Let me in your heart
Right where you stand
Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Take me as I am
Take me as I am
