Lyrics For Rob’s New Song – We have Some But Help Us Put the Rest Together   26 comments

I have to admit I’m a HUGE fan of Rob’s music. I love the emotion he puts into his voice when he sings. So this morning when I woke up I tried putting together the lyrics… It’s a bit hard, so here’s where I’m asking your help. I’ll write down the parts I “think” he sings. If you guys can help me fill in the gaps or correct the ones I have, maybe we can piece it together! 

So here goes:

I strum a double string, 

My hands play softly on a string now,

And I do believe that honestly,

That I know just where I want to be right now,

There are pictures in her eyes that are a threat for the skies,

So I’ll wait ,

And with our souls misunderstood, 

and our minds they sought to map the way, (??) 


For how long, how long, 

How long must you take? 

I was set for that mistake ,

But you moved, 

When there was nothing that I couldn’t take, 

It’s all on you darling, 

You took me in when my eyes were turned, 

It’s all on you babe, 

You turned your back  when I tried to learn,

Still I cannot lift my eyes, 

If your hands are turned in  mine, 

But you dared now,

What you said  our  souls could contain, (??) 

Could contain,


Now I’m gone, 

With a broken, twisted, soul in mine, 

But for how long? 

Because I wasted this train of youth  all on you,

it’s all on you,

it’s all on you,

all on you, 

all on you,

all on you, 

all on you, 

It’s all on you, 

It’s all on you. 

I cross referenced with this version when I was done as well to see if I could find more words. Thanks to socalmom2four  & PJann21 for help on the second line.

  1. WOW!!! I love Rob’s voice… Rob’s songs… and this… is so… so… wonderful!
    Perfect voice… perfect playing guitar… perfect lirics… LOVED!

  2. You’re really sure the first 2 lines aren’t

    “And their eyes were on a double string and their hands lay
    softly on the street now ”

    Kinda sounds right to me..

  3. that’s true..

    Maybe you should call Rob and ask him 😉 LOL

  5. I can’t even…. I barely listen to (and never understand!!) the words, I’m still trying to put the voice to the man. It just seems to amazing to me that they are the same person.

    Good job on trying to get the words together though 🙂

  6. This is what I have:

    Their eyes are on, a double string
    My hands play softly on a string now
    And I do believe that honestly
    That I know just where I want to be right now

    There are pictures in her eyes, they’re a threat up for the skies
    So I wait
    Now with our souls misunderstood
    And our minds, they saw our mind away

    For how long, how long
    How long must you take
    I was sad for that mistake
    But you moved
    When there was nothing that I can take
    It’s all on you darling
    You took me when my eyes were turned
    It’s all on you baby
    You turned your back when I tried to learn
    Still I cannot lift my eyes
    If your hands are turned in mine
    But you dared now
    Would you say our souls could contain
    Could Contain

    Now I’m gone
    With a broken, twisted, soul in mind
    Before how long
    Cos I wasted this train of youth all on you
    It’s all on you
    It’s all on you
    It’s all on you
    All on you
    All on you
    All on you

    It’s all on you
    It’s all on you

    ——————–

    I agree with you that its not and their hands lay
    softly on the street now’ – I’ve listened loads and I think its ‘Stream’ as in Guitar Stream. I’m also not sure about the map bit :-S

  7. “There are pictures in her eyes that are a threat for the skies, So I’ll wait , And with our souls misunderstood, and our minds they sought to map the way, and our minds they sought to map the way, (??)”

    This part seems like its from another song of his I have on my ipod and it says “and our minds were sought upon that doorway.” He might have changed it for this song but that’s what mine version says.

    It’s a beautiful song<3

  8. K… so went through a few different versions and tinkered…
    Sounds like she’s playing the guitar and he’s with her phsycially, both have tormented souls but they’re no longer on the same path?
    *****

    Her eyes are on a double string and her hands play softly on the string now
    And I do believe that honestly
    That I know this is where I want to be right now
    There are pictures in her eyes
    They’re a thread up for the skies
    So I’ll wait
    Now with our souls misunderstood
    And our minds they saw a map of a way

    For how long, how long, how long, must you take?
    I was set for that mistake but you moved
    And when there was nothing that I couldn’t take
    Its all on you, darling’
    You took me when my eyes were turned
    It’s all on you, babe
    You turned your back when I tried to learn
    Still I cannot lift my eyes
    If your hands are turning mine
    But you dared not
    What you said our souls could contain

    They could contain
    But now I’m gone
    With a broken twisted soul in mind
    But for how long?
    Cause I’ve wasted this train of youth all on you,
    It’s all on you
    It’s all on you
    All on you
    All on you
    All on you
    All on you
    Yeah, yeah
    It’s all on you
    It’s all on you

  9. Perhaps it’s ‘They her map the way?’ …

  10. Sorry ‘They saw her map the way’

  11. am just so moved/touched/altered by that voice*

  12. This is what I got for a few of the lines 🙂
    Her eyes are on a double string
    And her hands play softly on the stream now

    And our minds they sort of map the way

  13. Did he write this?

  14. OMG what a beautiful, soulful song and right at the end he seems to say he wanted to sing another song, how awesome would that have been!!!!!

  15. Does anybody know what the name is of this beautiful song?

    Monica Reinhart
  16. Monica, I think the general assumption is it’s called ‘It’s All On You’ 🙂

  17. And their eyes were on a double string and their hands lay
    softly on the street now
    And I do believe that honestly that I know this is where I want to be right now
    There are pictures in her eyes, they’re a thread up for the skies
    So I wait
    Now with our souls misunderstood
    And our minds they saw a map of a way
    For how looong.
    For how long, how long must you take.
    I was set for that mistake but you moved.
    And when there was nothing then that I couldn’t take
    Its all on you, darlin’
    You took me when my eyes were turned
    Its all on you, baby
    You turned your back when I tried to learn
    Still I cannot lift my eyes
    If your hands are turning mine
    But you dared not
    What you said our souls could contain
    They could contain
    But now I’m gone
    With a broken twisted soul in mind
    But for how long?
    Cause I’ve wasted this train of youth all on you, all on you
    Its all on you
    Its all on you
    Its all on you
    Its all on you
    Its all on you
    Its all on you

  18. Robert is perfect, Beautiful voice, lovely song, he plays guitar so great.
    ROBERT IS WONDERFUL

  19. there is a bit of a generation gap in his music and mine but he is so good and I love this. Thanks for putting the words because I enjoyed it more. I liked Let Me Sign also. He is a great actor and very talented. And beautiful

  20. its been buggin the hell out of me that i cant understand some of his lyrics but for those tough parts i think they go,

    “there are pictures in her eyes, theyre a threat for the sky” (as in he was moved by her determination. whether in her personal life or professional career – a drive he didnt have at the time and i think this was written in the time they spent apart before NM filming)

    “so ill wait

    now with our souls misunderstood and our minds, they sought to map the way”

    “i was SENT for that mistake, but you moved” (i think this refers to Oregano and that Rob believes they were meant to fall in love the way they did, but she resisted at first, thats why its all on her…)

    “When there was nothing that i couldnt take
    its all on you” (he was there for her, ready to be with her, willing to do anything to be with her)

    the rest i havent figured out yet.

  21. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to analyze it in a Robsten way *rolls eyes*
