Battle Of The Dragon

Demo #1 (w/Tom Petty)

This was not preplanned
But after some calls
I decided to go to the other side of the world
I see something
I see a handsome soldier
(You would)
I see myself remaining
(What?)
When all of them are gone
And the reason that I paint you
(Why?)
In my paintings
And the reasons I recorded
The sounds of your voices
(You’re not listening)

No one walks away
From this battle
The power
So strong
Like a fury…
(Oh oh oh)
Keep the fury deep inside
And wish it to end
And when your friends start asking you why
You pretend…

The beautiful
And the sensitive
And the, oh so very young

We are adapting to your silence
I can live here without you
At least I’m learning
But I cannot live without your songs
(Cause?)
No!
No!
Who have you been with?
Have you been with friends?
Oh…or is there more?
Now, have you been writing
Oh, you say it’s…harder now
(I didn’t say anything)
Well, I got the message
Stay among the living…

So
From what I can tell
I need to be there
(Where?)

He says
Someone’s looking for you
Oh…
Cause nothing is wrong…
(I didn’t say nothing)
I can, and I will
Go on…

No one walks away
From this battle
The power
Is so strong
Like a fury…
(Whoa…, no )
Keep the fury deep inside
Then wish it to end
And when your friends start asking you why…
You pretend…

No one walks away
From this battle
From the power
It’s so strong
(?)
Like a fury
(Oh no, I didn’t say nothin’)
Then wish it to end
Then wish it to end
(Who’s gonna do it for ya now)
When your friends…
No…
Don’t ask you why…
You say
You better pray?
Nothing….
(Oh, don’t know nothin’)

No one walks away
(?)
From this power
It’s the power
It’s so strong…
Like a fury
(When this battle is over)
If I am still I will be fine

Keep this battle
Keep this time
Keep the fury
No one…

Because no one walks away
From this battle
From the power

 

Demo #2 (w/Tom Petty)

This was not preplanned
But after some calls
I decided to go to the other side
Of the world…

I see something
I see a handsome soldier
(You would)
I see myself remaining
When all of them are gone
And the reasons that I paint you
(Why?)
In my paintings
(Why?)
And the reason I recorded
The sound of your voices

No one walks away
From this battle
From the power
So strong
Like a fury
(When the battle is over)
Keep the fury deep inside
(Who’s gonna wear this crown?)
And wish it to end
(Who’s gonna do it for ya?)
Your friends start asking you why
(When this battle is over)
You just pretend
(Who’s gonna where the crown)

The beautiful
And the sensitive
And the
Oh so very young

We are adapting to your silence
I can live here without you
(Never say nothin’)
At least I’m learning
But I cannot live without your songs

No…
Who have you been with
Have you been with friends
Hope they’re isn’t more, they’re more
(?)
Have you been writing
(What?)
Ooh…
Well, you say it’s harder now
(I didn’t say nothing)
Well, I see the message
(Didn’t say nothing, but, who’s gonna do it to ya now)
You say
Just listen
Well, listen to me

Whoa…
From what I can tell
I need to be here….

You say someone’s looking for me
Nothing is wrong
(I never say nothin’)
Ooh
You can, and you will
Go on…

No one walks away
From this battle
(Not you, not me)
From the power
So strong
Like a fury
Ooh….
If I’m still I will be fine…
(Who said this battle is over…)
Then wish it to end

I decided to go
To the other side of the world
I see something
I see a handsome soldier
I see myself remaining
When all of them are gone
And the reason that I paint you
In my painting
And the reason I record you
The sounds of your voices

No one walks away
Not from this battle
The power
Is so strong
Like a fury
Keep the fury
Deep inside
And wish it to end
And when your friends start asking you why
You pretend

The beautiful
And the sensitive
And the oh-so-very young

We are adapting to your silence
I can live here without you
At least I’m learning
But I cannot live without your songs

Who have you been with
Have you been with friends
Or is there more
(Listen to me)
Have you been writing
Whoa, you say it’s harder now
(have you been listening)
Well, I got the message
(Baby, stay)
Stay among the living
(Among the living)

From what I can tell
I need to be there
You say someone’s looking for me
Nothing is wrong…
I can and I will
Go on…

Well…
No one walks away
From this battle
The power
Is so strong
Like a fury
If I am still, I will be fine
Keep the fury
Deep inside you
And wish it to end
And when your friends start asking you why
You just pretend

No one walks away
From this battle
So strong
(Like a fury)
Like a fury
(Keep the fury)
Then wish it to end
(Deep inside)
Then wish it to end
And when your friends ask you why….
You just pretend

(Well…)
No one walks away
From this battle
(The power…so strong)
No one wins this game
(Like a fury)
No one wins
(Just wish it away)
Wish it away
