As You Sleep

3:09

Close your eyes, and I will be swimming
Lullaby’s fill your room, and I will be singing
Singing to only you
don't forget I'll hold your head
Watch the night sky fading red

but as you sleep, and no one is listening
I will lift you off your feet, I'll keep you from sinking
Don’t you wake up yet, 'cause soon I'll be leaving you
Soon I'll be leaving you, but you won’t be leaving me

In the car, the radio leaves me searching for your star
A constellation of frustration driving hard
Singing my thoughts back to me, like watching heartache on T.V.

But as you sleep, and no one is listening
I will lift you off your feet, I’ll keep you from sinking
Don’t you wake up yet, 'cause soon I’ll be leaving you, soon I'll be leaving you
but you won’t be leaving me

Don’t forget I’ll hold your head, watch the night sky fading red

But as you sleep, and no one is listening
I will lift you off your feet, I’ll keep you from sinking
Don’t you wake up yet, 'cause soon i’ll be leaving you
Soon I’ll be leaving you, but you won’t be leaving me

Space

2:57

Home, is this a quiet place where you should be alone?
Is this where the tortured and the troubled find their own?
I don't know, but I can tell this isn't you, your cover's blown
But oh no, don't you dare hang up this phone

Hey! Give me space so I can breathe
Give me space so I can sleep
Give me space so you can drown in this with me

In this place
The lonely escapade in outer space
There's no anecdote for irony, You say
that you have,
when you know,
That you don't,
and you say,
that you can,
When you know,
that you won't

Hey! Give me space so I can breathe
Give me space so I can sleep
Give me space so you can drown in this with me

Hey! Give me space but I can't breathe
Give me space but I can't sleep
Give me just one inch I swear that's all I need, oh

These battered walls and TV screens
Sometimes they make me want to scream

Ahhh!

Hey! Give me space so I can breathe
Give me space so I can sleep
Give me space so you can drown in this with me

Hey! Give me Space but I can't breathe
Give me space but I can't sleep
Give me just one inch I swear that's all I need

Down

3:28

Let’s get drunk
You can drive us to the harbor
Wish upon a star but
Do you know what stars are?
Balls of fire, burning up the black space
Falling from the landscape
Exploding in the face of God

Let’s get crazy,
Talk about our big plans
Places that you’re going
Places that I haven’t been
Build my walls up
Concrete castle
Keep this kingdom free of hassle, yeah

Yeah
Yeah

But I hear sound echo in the emptiness
All around, but you can’t change this loneliness
Look at what you’ve found, I’ve fallen down

Taste the saline rolling down your cheekbone
Tell me that you’re alone, tell me on the telephone
Feel your heart it breaks within your chest now
Try to get some rest now, sleeps not coming easy for a while, child

Child, yeah

But I hear sound echo in the emptiness
All around, but you can’t change this loneliness
Look at what you’ve found, I’ve fallen down
Down, down
Down, down

But I hear sound echo in the emptiness
All around, but you can’t change this loneliness
Look at what you’ve found, I’ve fallen down
Look at what you’ve found, I’ve fallen down

Only Ashes

3:28

Piece by piece, and bit by bit
i'll break this down for you, real slow
but i can't whisper all of this
and i can't seem to let this go

so i'll watch the matches, turn to ashes
i'll watch the matches, turn to ashes

i can tell its your turn, i smell the sulfur so clear
and fire's a beautiful sound
and the wings that you burn turn to ashes my dear
and ashes just fall to the ground
yeah we're only ashes

part and part and inch my inch
you'll have your mile when its through
incinerate whats left of this
and torch the part of me that's you

so i'll watch the matches, turn to ashes

i can tell it's your turn, i smell the sulfur so clear
and fire's a beautiful sound
and the wings that you burn turn to ashes my dear
and ashes just fall to the ground
yeah we're only ashes

i can tell it's your turn, i smell the sulfur so clear
and fire's a beautiful sound
and the wings that you burn turn to ashes my dear
and ashes just fall to the ground
yeah we're only ashes

Me and the Moon

4:07

It’s a good year for a murder
She's begging to jesus, she’s pulling the trigger
There are no tears, 'cause he's not here
She washes her hands, and she fixes the dinner
But soon they'll be coming to rush her away
and no ones so sure if her crime had a reason

Reasons like seasons
They constantly change
And the seasons of last year
Like reasons have floated away
Away with this spilt milk
Away with this dirty dish water, away
Seventeen years, and all that he gave was a daughter

“It’s me and the moon,” she says
And I've got no trouble with that
But I am a butterfly, and you wouldn’t let me die
“It’s me and the moon,” she says

And it’s over, but just started
The blood stained the carpet
Her heart like a crystal
She's lucid and departed
A life left behind, she can find in her mind gone away

Away with these nightmares
Away with suburbia shake down
Away
You marry a role and
You give up your soul 'til you break down

“It’s me and the moon,” she says
And I've got no trouble with that
But I am a butterfly, and you wouldn’t let me die
“It’s me and the moon,” she says

But what do you say we go for a ride?
What do you say we get high?
But I’m so tired of days that feel like the night

“It’s me and the moon,” she says
And I've got no trouble with that
But I am a butterfly, and you wouldn’t let me die
I am a butterfly but you wouldn't let me die
i am a butterfly, i am a butterfly, i am a butterfly

The Runaway

3:03

If you ran to the end of the earth
i would catch you and you would be safe
if you fell down a well
i would bring you a rope and take all of your pain
all the pain, all the pain
that you hide from me everyday

if youre missing i will run away
i will build a path to you
if you're missing i will run away
just to find myself in you

if i woke up alone i won't stop till i'll find you and you are with me
cause by now, i know you better than you know yourself
and i know what you really need
what you need, or i need
but either way this is where you should be
here with me, or ill bleed so much that you wont believe

if you're missing i will run away
i will build a path to you
if you're missing i will run away
just to find myself in you

you better not, you better not run
you better not, you better not run

if you're missing i will run away
i will build a path to you
if you're missing i will run away
i will find you
i will find you
i will find you

Ruthless

3:24

This is the only lonely picture
Waiting on my floor
Littering my shore
This is the last true burning letter
Given to a girl
Written by a boy
Living in a world created to destroy

But if I built you a city, would you let me
Would you tear it down?

But there you go for the last time
I finally know now what I should have known then
But I could still be ruthless if you’ll let me
But there you go when I'm not done
You’re waving goodbye, well, at least you're having fun
The rising tide will not let you forget me
Forget me

This is your ghost that kneels before me
Razors on her tongue, a body full of oxygen
It wont be the last time she’ll ignore me
The thinning of my skin, without the strength to go
The winter setting in, to cover you in snow

But if I built you a city, would you let me
Would you tear it down?

But there you go for the last time
I finally know now what I should have known then
But I could still be ruthless if you’ll let me
But there you go when I'm not done
You’re waving goodbye, well, at least you're having fun
The rising tide will not let you forget me
Forget me
Forget me
Forget me
Forget me, yeah

I'll raise towers and climb them
Rivers and walk them
Oceans to drown in
You won’t make a sound

But there you go for the last time
I finally know now what I should have known then
But I could still be ruthless if you’ll let me
But there you go when I'm not done
You’re waving goodbye, well, at least you're having fun
The rising tide will not let you forget me
Forget me
Forget me

She Paints Me Blue

3:39

Tonight I watched the lights go out in your house
Wondering how I could get so deep
And you can still get to sleep
In vain I blame my trembling on the cold air
But I can’t hide that I've relied on you
Like yellow does on blue

And you're my good feeling, I’m kneeling
Inside a room she paints me blue
And you are my reason for breathing
Inside a room she paints me blue again

Atlanta started raining on me
And teenage love was underground
Tonight I break the surface
Atlanta started raining on me

And no young girl was claiming me
or naming me
And destiny gets nervous

And you're my good feeling, I’m kneeling
Inside a room she paints me blue
And you are my reason for breathing
Inside a room she paints me blue, again

And you're my good feeling, I’m kneeling
Inside a room she paints me blue
And you are my reason for breathing
Inside a room she paints me blue, again

Atlanta started raining on me
on me
Atlanta started raining on me
on me

Break Myself

3:16

I’m on fire
And the day is feeling hopeless
You’d see me burning but the burning’s turning smokeless
Soon I won’t feel at all
No

It’s electric. The neon hurt inside your phone call
The layered sadness and the madness it revolves
Breaking down the walls where your found love
No

Well, I’m willing to break myself
To shake this hell from everything I touch
I’m willing to bleed for days, my reds and greys
So you don’t hurt so much

And now I’m static
As your sky is turning purple and grey
I’m learning that the further that I crawl
The farther that I fall, is that ok?
No

And you’re in pieces
As your world becomes a rainstorm
You’ve got no shelter I’m a thousand miles away
If you survive the day

You say your leaving
You say your leaving

Well, I’m willing to break myself
To shake this hell from everything I touch
I’m willing to bleed for days my reds and greys
So you don’t hurt so much

So you don’t hurt so much

Never again will I fire this gun
No never again your the only one
No never again but you’re already gone.

I’m willing to break myself
I’m not afraid
I’m willing to break myself
I’m not afraid
I’m willing to break myself
I’m not afraid

Well, I’m willing to break myself
To shake this hell from everything I touch
I’m willing to bleed for days my reds and greys
So you don’t hurt so much

So much
So much
So much
So much

I Won't Make You

3:50

I'm under attack again my dear, I'm in the way
Got no resolutions, no clever anecdotes to say
And still if I yell at the top of my lungs will it be the same?
I'd fly you a flag, I'd bury this pen into my veins

I wanna feel for you tonight
But I won't make you
I won't make you

The telephone number I got for you says nobody's home
The best thing I can think to do right now is leave it alone

And you had an apology in your mailbox since last July
It's funny when you find the words to say you find no reply

I wanna feel for you tonight
But I won't make you
I won't make you

Scream my name just one more time

But I won't make you
I won't make you

And it's been hours now

To be here like this
And just to lay you down
And just to taste your lips
And just to keep me up
God I'm tired of sleeping
And just to lay inside you
And just to know this feeling

I wanna feel for you tonight
But I won't make you
I won't make you

Scream my name just one more time

But I won't make you
I won't make you

21 And Invincible

3:19

Some days go by, I wish I was famous
Or maybe religious, So I could go to heaven
just like you
I can have a big house, complain about taxes
Payoff my exes, Ain’t that living?
No one makes fun of me, cause i can’t stand up for myself

woah, 21 and invincible
woah, Can’t wait to screw this up
And woah, we're 21 and invincible
I'm in power for the hour
I Guess today’s gonna blow us away

I’ve got a girlfriend
She tells me she needs me
and she loves me
We’ll probably get married
And everyone will bit their tongues so hard they bleed

When mom hears this song
She’ll tell me im crazy
She’ll say to me
“Son your'e much too young, go have some fun, don’t waste your youth like i did”

and woah, 21 and invincible
woah, Can’t wait to screw this up
And woah, we're 21 and invincible
I’m in power for the hour
I guess today’s gonna blow us away

And it’s been autumn since the day that I met you
If I hit bottom, will I crawl out alone
And I don't wish to know the secrets of summer at all

and woah, 21 and invincible
woah, Can’t wait to fuck this up
and woah, we're 21 and invincible
I’m in power for the hour
I guess today’s gonna blow us away

Miss America

3:23

Another lonely night in Amersterdam
The stars were coming out in waves
And miss my Miss America from Park Hotel
But I’m too stoned to call it a day

When everything you wanted
Is hard to hide behind your eyes
And I’m locked in my hotel room
Turning over our goodbyes

I will write this down for you
So you can read it
I will hold my breath for you
'Til I can feel it

Another lonely night in Amsterdam
The water moving through the sound
Of the blood that's boiling in my veins
and the food I can’t keep down

And I don’t care if you don’t love me
And I don’t care if you don’t change
And I could live inside the shadow that I cast for you
If it meant that you would stay
And I’ll be home before the morning comes,
And you won’t have to be alone

I will write this down for you
So you can read it
I will hold my breath for you
'Til I can’t feel it
You don’t have to see me this way,
Cause this way I’m okay

I will write this down, I will write this down

Oh love, I’m tangled up again
Oh love, when does this twisting end?
When does this twisting end?


I will write this down for you
So you can read it
I will hold my breath for you
'Til I can’t feel it
You don’t have to see me this way
Cause this way I’m okay

I will write this down for you,
So you can read it…

I Want to Save You

4:22

Standing on the edge of morning
Scent of sex and New Found Glory
Playing as she’s pulling back her hair
She drives away
She’s feeling worthless
Used again but nothing’s different
She'd stay the night
But knows he doesn’t care

Home by three
To deafening quiet
The porch light’s off
Guess they forgot it
She’d cry herself to sleep
But she don’t dare
And she wants to be a model
She wants to hear she’s beautiful
She’s beautiful

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
Save me too
I want to save you

Dressed by dawn and out the door
No light
She memorized the floor
So she could leave without being detected
She works till three
It’s uniform
She dreams that he’ll come by the store
She prays for days
When boys mean she’s protected
And she wants someone to see her
She needs to hear she’s beautiful
She’s beautiful

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
Save me too
I want to save you

And she won’t sleep
She won’t sleep
And she won’t sleep
At all

I want to save you
I want to save you
U need you
Save me too
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save you
(let me save you)
iI want to save you

Punk Rock Princess

3:23

Maybe when the room is empty
Maybe when this bottle’s full
Maybe when the door gets broke down love can break in
Maybe when I’m done with thinking
Maybe you can think me whole
Maybe when I’m done with endings this can begin
This can begin, this can begin
You could be my punk rock princess
I could be your garage band king
You could tell me why you just don’t fit in
And how you’re gonna be something

Maybe when your hair gets darker
Maybe when your eyes get wide
Maybe when the walls are smaller there will be more space
Maybe when I’m not so tired
Maybe you can step inside
Maybe when I look for things that I can’t replace
I can’t replace, I can’t replace

If you could be my punk rock princess
I could be your garage band king
You could tell me why you just don’t fit in
And how you’re gonna be something
If I could be your first real heart ache
I would do it over again
You could be my punk rock princess
I would be your heroin

I never thought you’d last
I never dreamed you would
You watch your life go passed
You wonder if you should
If you should be my punk rock princess
I would be your garage band king
You could tell me why you just don’t fit in
And how you’re gonna be something

If I could be your first real heart ache
I would do it over again
If you could be my punk rock princess
I would be your heroin

Whoa Oh You know, you only burn my bridges
Whoa Oh You know, you just can’t let it sink in

You could be my heroine

I Woke Up in a Car

3:28

I woke up in new york city
From my sleep behind the wheel
Caught a train to Poughkeepsie
And time stood still

She wrote me a letter from San Diego
To qualify her luck
These flights connect through Arizona
But i think I’ll stay stuck

So here I am
Here I am
Well I woke up in a car
I traced away the fog
So I could see the Mississippi on her knees
I’ve never been so lost
I’ve never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a car

I met a girl who kept tattoos for homes
That she had loved
If I were her I’d paint my body
Until all my skin was gone

She wrote me a letter as we passed through Rockford
She said she won’t forget
Maybe I do maybe I don’t
But I know I haven’t yet

So here I am
Here I am
Well I woke up in a car
I traced away the fog
So I could see the Mississippi on her knees
I’ve never been so lost
I’ve never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a car

And maybe i could live forever
If that ever i had known
That you’d be waiting there whenever i’m alone

But here I am
Well I woke up in a car
I traced a way to fog
So I could see the Mississippi on her knees
I’ve never been so lost
I’ve never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys

Well I woke up in a car
I traced a way to fog
So I could see the Mississippi on her knees
I’ve never been so lost
I’ve never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a car

IF U C Jordan

4:15

I have a story of bitter anthem,
For everyone to hear
About this kid who just don’t like me,
And that’s a solid fact
They say he’s hunting me
And as you see
I'm all swelled up with fear
'Cause I can’t get him off my back
If you see Jordan
He makes me sick
High school’s over
And you still won’t quit

You tried to fight me down
At Tyler’s beach and man I think that’s great
You nearly cried and said to yell at you like I do at all the girls
Then you drove home real quick
Did you make it in time to masturbate?
There’s one too many of you in this world

If you see Jordan
He makes me sick
High school’s over
And you still won’t quit

You say it's chivalry but it's jealousy
That lead us to this song
Won’t play it often
Just at least until you’re gone
You’ll stop at nothing but the real thing
And everything up to that’s pretend
You tried to brainwash all my friends

If you see Jordan
He makes me sick
High school’s over
And you still won’t quit

Fuck you jordan
You make me sick
High school’s over
I don’t care if you dye your hair
You’ll always be a little red head bitch

The Astronaut

4:28

I’ve been sleeping with a ghost
I’ve been watching stars
Crawling out of the sky
And I’ve been hoping
I’m close to the space man movies
I call my life

And I’ve been climbing ladders through time
I’ve got tunnel vision
But I’m doing fine
And I’ve been
Watching stars coming off of the wall
And maybe if I’m lucky I can catch them
Before you fall
And you are not alone

Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you’ve got
I need to be high
Crawling out of the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high

And I’ve been holding
This microphone
And I’ve been channeling
But I think we’re alone
And I’ve got platinum vision
And a tin foil touch
I’ve got you to propel me
But I still need so much
Not to be alone

Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you’ve got
I need to be high
Crawling out of the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high

And you are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone

Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you’ve got
I need to be high
Crawling out of the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high
Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you’ve got
I need to be high
I disappear in the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high

And I’ve got you to propel me
But i still need so much

Hurricane

3:03

Shake down, you make me break, for goodness sake I think I'm on the edge of something new with you. Shout out, don't drown the sound, I'll drown you out, you'll never scream so loud as I want to scream with you.

Standing there with your smile blinding your eyes from seeing my face as I'm dying to figure out a girl. But she drifts so far away, I'm on her coast, so maybe I should stay and map around her world.

So Don't Say “These currents are still killing me” and you can't explain how the wind went and pulled you into the hurricane.

Stand up don't make a sound, your ears might bleed. There are sweet fluorescent enemies that live inside of me. The world moves faster than I knew, not fast enough to not creep up on you and the space we put between. So pull me under your weather patterns, your cold fronts and the rain don't matter, because a sun burns what I needed.

You don't do it on purpose but you make me shake now I count the hours 'til you wake. With your babies breath, breathe symphonies, come on sweet catastrophe. Maybe this time I can follow through, I can feel complete, stop paying dues. Stop the rain from falling keep my oceans calm this time I know nothings wrong.

Cavanaugh Park

4:18

At Cavanaugh Park
Where I used to sit
All alone in the dark
And dream about things
That I cannot say
You always said destiny'd
Blow me away
And nothing's gonna blow me away

At Cavanaugh Park
Where you used to take me
To play in the sand
And said to me son
One day you’ll be a man
And men can do terrible things
Yes they can

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I’m running out of clock
And that ain’t a shock
Some things never do change

At Cavanaugh Park
We used to get high
Watching teams as they fought
They loved my friend Adam
But he always got caught
Man that kid made fucking up look cool
aren’t we all so cool no, no.

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I’m running out of clock
And that ain’t a shock
Some things never do change
never do change
never do change
never do change
never do change

At Cavanaugh Park
Where I used to think
That my life would be good
And I would do things
That I thought that I should
And no ones going to tear me down

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I’m running out of clock
And that ain’t a shock
Some things never do change

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I’m running out of clock
And that ain’t a shock
Some things never do change
never do change
never do change
never do change
never do change

Fall

3:40

Lyrics to Fall :
I close my eyes
thought i was lost but i was stranded
i go outside
to my surprise the sky had landed
i thought it made more sense
if i could only keep you guessing
i was a fool to think that i should stop you from undressing
now i'm believing all the words you say
that i can't say back to you
but so you can

so i fall
i don't wanna feel this small
you know i just can't handle this
handle this at all
and i'll just fall
i'll let my heartbeat drop
i falter as the music stops
and you watch me as stall
and wonder when i fall

i kiss your neck
i feel you breathing on my shoulder
still i'm perfect
it must be you cause now it's over
i was so close
that was the most that i have ever been through
now old cassettes and cigarettes
will be the ones to save you
how can you ask for me to stay
when all you ever do is go?
just go

and so i fall
i don't wanna feel this small
you know i just can't handle this
handle this at all
and so i fall
i let my heartbeat drop
i falter as the music stops
and you watch me as i stall
and wonder when i..

go on
you can't be waiting
go on
and watch me as i fall

i don't wanna feel this small
you know i just can't handle this
handle this at all
and so i'll fall
i'll let my heartbeat drop
i falter as the music stops
and you watch me as stall
and wonder when i..

Straw Dog

3:49

Staring into the intersection
She thinks that she can fly and she might
Holding on in a new direction
She’s gonna try it tonight
The closer I get to feeling
The further that I’m feeling from alright
The more I step into the sun
The more I step out of the light

Jessica is covered in a blanket
On a sunday porch
Thinking of weekends
She would party in the city
She doesn’t have a flame
She’d prefer to burn out
Like a torch
If she gets nowhere in life
At least she knows she’s pretty

She says
Hey now the straw dog’s out in the street
Hey now there’s chemicals in the clouds
Hey now they’re calling all the police
But they wont get to us anyhow

The moon is shining now
And shadows are what’s left of all the noise
Simple silhouettes and cut outs
As if we had a choice
He listens closely now
Swears that he can hear a voice
That’s calling him

And saying

Hey now the straw dog’s out in the street
Hey now there’s chemicals in the clouds
Hey now they’re calling all the police
But they wont get to us anyhow

What does it take to be a super hero in my world
Make no mistake that these villains always get the girl
We can escape and then we’d skate away from all of this
But no one ever does

She’s saying

Hey now the straw dog’s out in the street
Hey now there’s chemicals in the clouds
Hey now they’re calling all the police
But they wont get to us

No they’ll never get to us
Hey now the straw dog’s out in the street
Hey now there’s chemicals in the clouds
Hey now they’re calling all the police
But they wont get to us anyhow

Good News

3:51

She’s trapped inside her room
With reruns on the screen
Old books and movies
But she can’t stop thinking
I’m torn between myself
My radio, my friends
I want to write this one off over and over again
And then she looked at me to scream
“My castles are falling”
But i can’t look into the street
Without everything changing

I want to read good news
I want to be innocent again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

She waits all day
She stands a stranger in her skin
She moves the science with her hands
She lines her walls
With every paper she can see
These words consume her
But they never set her free
And then she looked at me to scream
“My castles are falling”
But i can’t look into the street
Without everything changing

I want to read good news
I want to be innocent again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

I want to read good news
I want to be a little kid again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening
I want to read good news
I want to go to sleep at night again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

Drunk Girl

4:07

I kissed a drunk girl
I kissed a drunk girl, yes I did
I kissed a drunk girl on the lips
I let my guard down
How could I have been so dumb?
Her eyes were open
I know I am not the one
I know I am not the one
I know I am not the one

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
I’m sure I could’ve been anybody else

I went to her house
Everybody there was gone
Her little cousin just passed out on the lawn
She walked to my car and
Mouthed is everything okay
Leaned in slowly so now I
Can say

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
I’m sure I could’ve been anybody else
anybody else

I pulled away
I didn’t think it would be right
I said let’s save this
for another night
She said “No, no, no I know
That everything is gonna be just fine”
How could I do this when I want her to be all mine?

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
I’m sure I could’ve been anybody else
anybody else

I know you don’t care about me
I’m sure when all is said and done
and I go home feeling lonely
You will have had your fun
do you even remember?

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
And I’m sure
I could’ve been anybody else
anybody else
anybody else
I could have been
anybody else

Not What It Seems

3:18

A long day
If ever these questions were yours what would you say?
I don’t know
But I’m writing the answers on cheap paper napkins
And now he’s turning off
And now she’s shutting down
And it’s not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No its not what it seems
It’s just what you think it is
And these fights
They climb through my veins like its mercury rising
And these nights
I seem to remember a home that was better
And now he’s turning off
Now she’s shutting down
And its not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No its not what it seems
It's just what you think it is
And now he’s turning off
This family’s breaking down
And it’s not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No it’s not what it seems
It's just what you think it is, just what you think it is
No its not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No its not what it seems
It’s just what you think it is just what you think it is
It’s just what you think it is
What you think it is

You're Gone

4:37

Taking steps back through the words I should have said to you they all got lost
you went away
well i feel sick and you just don't care anymore
anymore
I wish to be with you
minutes of me and you
and i can't feel this happening
so tie my hands back
and make me feel you coming down
coming down
and you don't care
your face is on a billboard
and your everywhere
you don't care much for interviews
your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone away
if you don't like being hurt then please don't stay
its hard to wave goodbye from aeroplanes when i just don't think that you can see I taper off and say its never worth the pain but some time it is
and you don't care
your face is on a billboard and your everywhere
you don't care much for interviews
your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone away
if you don't like being hurt then please don't stay
if you don't like being hurt then please don't stay
gotta wish that i could make this ride wish that there was something worth the time for her to give to me
a phone call from LA is my present
there is nothing left for me to give
I wish I could
and I know that I should but
you know I know I won't
and you don't care
your face is on a billboard
your everywhere
you don't care much for interviews
your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone your gone away
if you don't like being hurt then please don't stay
if you don't like being hurt then get away
if you don't like being hurt then please don't stay

Globes and Maps

3:54

Light breaks underneath a heavy door
And I try to keep myself awake
Fall all around us on a hotel floor
And you think that you’ve made a mistake
And there’s a pain in my stomach from another sleepless binge
And I struggled to get myself up again

I wanna hang onto something
That won’t break away or fall apart
Like the pieces of my heart

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won’t you believe me?
Globes and maps they chart your way back home
Do you wanna leave or something?

And dreams came around you in a hazy rain
You opened your mouth wide to feel them fall
And I write a letter, from a one-way train
But i don’t think you’ll read it at all

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won’t you believe me?
Globes and maps they chart your way back home
Do you wanna leave or something?

And I can’t take this anymore
Well I know that I can’t take this anymore
I can’t take this anymore
'Cause I know someday I’ll see you walk out that door

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won’t you believe me?
Globes and maps they chart your way back home
So Do you wanna leave? Do you wanna leave?
Globes and maps they chart your way back home
Do you wanna leave or something?
