I Feel Fine

Back to Top

Breathing out and breathing in
is harder than it's ever been
for me

God i think you're beautiful
you're stirring every chemical in me
and i see you standing here
and i can't believe it
whispering a symphony
and i think you mean it

But there you go again
walking out on me
but i will be okay
i will be okay
cuz i feel fine

Long ago i dreamt of you
the memories are nothing new to me
and now you're coming back to me
you're everything i wanted you to be
but i see you talking here
and i can't believe it
i try to make it clear
that i think you mean it

But there you go again
drifting out on me
but i will be okay
i will be okay

Where were you yesterday ?
Why did you run away ?
What did you do for me ?
you believe it for so long

but now you're back again
and i won't let you in
cuz i will be okay
i will be okay
i will be okay
i will be okay
cuz i feel fine
yeah i feel fine
i've never been better
yeah i feel fine
i've never been better
 
 
Ultimate Love Song
(http://www.johnhampson.com/)
Back to Top

I would be a grain of sand that was stuck between your toes
The mirror on your bedroom door, when you slip out of your clothes
And I would like to be your hair when its all tied up in bows
And I would be the silky skin that is covering your bones

This is the ultimate love song
'cause you are the ultimate love lost
and I never thought it would hurt so
'cause I never thought that you would go
now everyone elses heartbreak should be measured by my pain
and all the beauty in this world has spiraled down the drain

I would be the habit that you found so hard to break
A sigh, a wish, a silent prayer when you left it up to fate
I would like to be the sunshine as it falls upon your face
Then I would be the envy of the whole damn human race

This is the ultimate love song
'cause you are the ultimate love lost
and I never thought it would hurt so
'cause I never thought that you would go
now everyone elses heartbreak should be measured by my pain
and all the beauty in this world has spiraled down the drain
I would be the sunshine as it falls upon your face
Then I would be the envy of the whole damn human race

I would be a grain of sand that was stuck between your toes
And I will be an open door, for you I'll never close

This is the ultimate love song
'cause you are the ultimate love lost
and I never thought it would hurt so
'cause I never thought that you would go

this is the ultimate love song for you


Good Friend
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

I used to think that you were someone else
Then I'd loose my mind each day
I used to think that I could help myself
But its true 
what they say
There is no reason without a way
This is

Good Bye to you and Me
what a good friend you've been to me
and i owe it all to you
every good thing that I do is you

I used to wish that I was someone else
then I'd dream away the day
those dreams have made me into someone new
and its true what they say
there is no better time than today
if this is

Good Bye to you and Me
what a good friend you've been to me
and I owe it all to you
every good thing that I do is you

I am here
I need to say
that I will miss you
everyday
and its true what they say
there is no better time than today
if this is

Good Bye to you and Me
what a good friend you've been to me
if this is
Good Bye to you and Me
well what good friends we will always be
and I owe it all to you
every good thing that I do is you x 2
its you

Every good thing that I do is you
its you

every good thing that I do
well I owe it all to you
every good thing that I do is

What if everything you had 
Was like a castle made of sand
Why donít you open up your hand
and hold on tight
What if everything was wrong 
and no one knew your favorite song
there is no one left to sing along 
with you tonight

Everything is alright
I will see you tonight
Everything you want 
is in your hands
And I canít help you decide 
The battles you fight inside
and what hurts you
you dont understand

and it feels like there is nothing right
and its all the same to you anyways

What if everything you had 
Was like a castle made of sand
Why donít you open up your hand
and hold on tight
What if everything was wrong 
and no one knew your favorite song
there is no one left to sing along 
with you tonight

The better place you wished for
is just outside your front door
still it never seemed so far away
Summer gave no reward
Until this day was dreamed for
wait to feel the sunlight
on your face 

and it feels like there is nothing right
and its all the same to you anyways

What if everything you had 
Was like a castle made of sand
Why donít you open up your hand
and hold on tight
What if everything was wrong 
and no one knew your favorite song
there is no one left to sing along 
with you tonight

You never know what to say
So you run in your hideaway
I see the shadow falling in the summer sun
So you never know what to say
It doesnít matter anyway
Youíll heal inside
Youíll feel this time

And if everything you had 
Was like a castle made of sand
Why donít you open up your heart
and hold on tight
And if everything was wrong 
I would sing your favorite song
and you would have to sing along 
with me tonight

sing along with me tonight x 2

What if everything was wrong 
and no one knew your favorite song

Emily

Now Emily hides in a way
she is waiting for a
knight in shining armor
and I know that nothing I'd say
could make her see me 
as a man of honor

but I am

now sometimes i wish she could see through
all the rain and clouds that fill her sky
and know that tomorrow brings with wings
of bird a song to fill her mind

and I am

oh yes I am

Chorus:
the one who can sing
all of the dreams
the one who can make them all come true
if she would believe 
I'm down on my knees
but in my hands i hold

Now Emily stands at the door
a picture lies in pieces on the floor
the one where we walked on the beach
the wind blew waves 
that crashed upon the shore
oh we are
forever more

Chorus:
the one who can sing
all of our dreams
the one who can make them all come true
if she would believe 
I'm down on my knees
but in my hands i hold

everything that she wants
everything that should be
as far as her
big blue eyes could see
if she would believe 
I'm down on my knees
but in my hands i hold

what do you want me to do
my head in my hands
i wait for the words 
to come and make you understand
so tell me I'm right
tell me i touched you down 
so deep inside

Now Emily hides in a way
she is waiting for a
knight in shining armor
and I know that nothing I'd say
can make her see me 
as a man of honor

Chorus:
I'm the one who can sing
all of our dreams
the one who can make them all come true
if she would believe 
I'm down on my knees
but in my hands i hold

everything that she wants
everything that should be
as far as her
big blue eyes could see

if she would believe 
I'm down on my knees
but in my hands i hold

in my hands i hold
the ring

You could be waiting for a day that won't come
And you could be so much more than you've become
And I have found my feet 257 weeks
But you could be waiting for a day that won't come... 
You could be waiting for your life to begin
And you could be so much more than you've been 
And I have found my feet 257 weeks
You could be waiting for your life to begin
And it's so sad
You're so good and I'm so bad 
But you won't see me wasting the best thing I've ever had
And it's such a shame
That I can't tell you anything 
You won't hear me still you endear me now 
Hard to see the window facing forward looking back
Over years spent tracing wondering how you left your track
Underwater breathing burns your lungs and breaks your back
And you could be waiting right here for a day that won't come... 
And it's so sad
You're so good and I'm so bad 
But you won't see me wasting the best thing I've ever had 
And it's such a shame
That I can't tell you anything 
You won't hear me still you endear me now!... 
You could be waiting for your life to begin
And you could be so much more than you've been
And I have found my feet 257 weeks
But you could be waiting for your life to begin... 
And it's so sad
You're so good and I'm so bad 
But you won't see me wasting the best thing I've ever had 
And it's such a shame
That I can't tell you anything 
You won't hear me still you endear me 
And it's so sad
You're so good and I'm so bad 
But you won't see me wasting the best thing I've ever had 
And it's such a shame
That I can't tell you anything 
You won't hear me still you endear me now 
Still you endear me now 
Still you endear me now

Absolutely (Story of a Girl)
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

Chorus:
This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

How many days in a year?
She woke up with hope but she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making the promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearin' the holes in the soles of her shoes
How many days disappear?
You look in the mirror, so how do you choose?

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

Chorus

How many lovers would stay?
Just to put up with this shit day after day
How did we wind up this way?
Watchin' our mouths for the words that we say
As long as we stand here waitin'
Wearin' the clothes of the souls that we choose
How do we get there today?
When we're walkin' too far for the price of our shoes

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

Chorus

And your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl
Whose pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her

Chorus

When she smiles

Crazy
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

I drive in the rain
With the window open 
But it's not the same
When everything has changed
But while your still near
I'll try anything
And I'll say all the things that you said you wanted to hear... 
But the words inside my head
Are better left unsaid
To lie like the ghosts beneath my bed... 
Don't you know that I go crazy! 
But I've got nothing left to give
Though I'll miss you for a while 
Don't you know that I go crazy! 
But you're on your own tonight
Though you know I'll miss your smile... 
You can't take back
Half of what you give 
And you won't remember
Half the life you've lived
But while you're still here 
I'll do anything
And I'll say all the things you said you needed to hear... 
Don't you know that I go crazy! 
But I've got nothing left to give
Though I'll miss you for a while 
Don't you know that I go crazy! 
But you're on your own tonight
Though you know I'll miss your smile... 
The words inside my head
Are better than the words I've said
As always... 
Don't you know that I go crazy! 
But I've got nothing left to give
Though I'll miss you for a while 
Don't you know that I go crazy! 
But you're on your own tonight
Though you know I'll miss your smile... 
Don't you know that I go crazy!... 
Though you know I'll miss your smile...

If I Am
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

So your standing on a ledge 
It looks like you might fall
So far down
Or maybe you were thinking about jumping
Now you could have it all
If you learned a little patience 
For though I cannot fly
I'm not content to crawl
So give me a little credit 
Have in me a little faith 
I want to be with you forever 
If tomorrow's not too late 
But it's always too late when you've got nothing 
So you say 
But you should never let the sun set on tomorrow
Before the sun rises today 
If I am 
Another waste of everything you dreamed of
I will let you down 
If I am 
Only here to watch as you suffer
I will let you down
So your walking on the edge
And you wait your turn to fall
But you're so far gone
That you don't see the hands upheld to catch you
And you could find the fault
In the heart that you've been handed! 
For though you cannot fly
You're not content to crawl
But it's always too late when you've got nothing 
So you say
But you should never let the sun set on tomorrow
Before the sun rises today 
If I am 
Another waste of everything you dreamed of
I will let you down
If I am 
Only here to as watch you suffer
I will let you down 
So you're standing on a ledge
It looks like you might fall
If I am
Another waste of everything you dreamed of
I will let you down
If I am 
Only here to as watch you suffer
I will let you down 
The answers we find
Are never what we had in mind
So we make it up as we go along 
I won't mention tomorrow
And we won't make those promises that we can't keep... 
I will never leave you
I will never let you down
I will never leave you 
I will never let you down


Revolve
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

I want to crawl inside your womb
I want to watch the rose on your cheeks bloom
I want to be the face in the moon
And watch the stars spin around your room
All your carefully worded letters
And your carefully spoken words
I will continue to evolve
I will continue to revolve around your sun
'Cause you are the only one!... 
Who understands who reaches out with both hands
And even while your fading I'm just shivering and waiting
I will continue to evolve
I will continue to revolve around your sun
'Cause you are the only one!... 
I want to drink deep from your well
I want to be the heart for which you fell
I want to be a shooting star
Across the heavens to be where you are
All your carefully worded letters
And your carefully spoken words
I will continue to evolve
I will continue to revolve around your sun
'Cause you are the only one!... 
Who understands who reaches out with both hands
And even while your fading I'm just shivering and waiting
I will continue to evolve
I will continue to revolve around your sun
'Cause you are the only one!... 
I want to crawl inside your womb
I want to watch the rose on your cheeks bloom
I will continue to evolve
I will continue to revolve around your sun
'Cause you are the only one!... 
Who understands who reaches out with both hands
And even while your fading I'm just shivering and waiting
Who understands who reaches out with both hands
And even while your fading I'm just shivering and waiting
I will continue to evolve
I will continue to revolve around your sun
'Cause you are the only one!... 
Time missing out
You're missing out
I'm missing out
We're missing out
You are the only one... 
Time missing out
You're missing out
I'm missing out
We're missing out
You are the only one...

Wanna Be
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

To watch the leaves grow on the trees with you is out of question
I walk into this summer all alone the usual session
You feel your instinct then you act but was it your intention
To leave me down and broken now you've ended our ascension
Yeah
I still can feel the beach sand in my shoes. Remember when
We talked along the ocean's song 'til blue from black fade in?
But that was then I learned to live without you far within'
I ask you why you're back to try to let me lose again?
You brought me here you wet my taste
You disappear without a trace
It wasn't me who made the call
'Cause now I wanna' be
Where you sleep
Where you laugh
Where you breathe!
And I hate to say
Still I sway!
Brown your eyes
Gone away
Should I feel some closure I deserve if that at least
And would you be so kind to show reasons for your release?
You woke me up from a distant past I left behind complete
The message that you sent that night now falls to bittersweet
Was it me my honesty?
You fail to show I never know
It wasn't me who made the call
'Cause now I wanna' be
Where you sleep
Where you laugh
Where you breathe!
And I hate to say
Still I sway!
Brown your eyes
Gone away
Was it me my honesty?
You fail to show I never know
You brought me here you wet my taste
You disappear without a trace
Did ya' think I'd ever lead you wrong?
Just know I'll save all of our moments that we are
Still I wanna' be
Where you sleep
Where you laugh
Where you breathe!
And I hate to say
Still I sway!
Brown your eyes
Gone away
Now I wanna' be
Someday you'll wish you never
Where you sleep
Someday you'll wish you never
Where you laugh
Someday you'll wish you never
Where you breathe
Someday you'll wish you never
And I hate to say
Someday you'll wish you never
Still I sway
Someday you'll wish you never
Brown your eyes
Someday you'll wish you never
Gone away
Someday you'll wish you never
It took you long enough
It took you long enough

So Far Away
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

If you leave where will you go
Before the regret you hold in your heart will start to show
If you leave how will you know 
If our ever after ever had a chance to grow 
Do you dream or do you sleep 
Do you pick and choose amongst the jewels for one to keep
Do you wish upon a star 
Or does everything just out of reach seem just too far away 
Nothing seems to change 
Let alone you won't forget my name
Just don't lose what you know 
Just don't lose what you know
When your so far away 
So deep you say
But no matter where you go it all ends up the same
Do you wish upon a star
Or does everything just out of reach seem just too far away
Nothing seems to change
Let alone you won't forget my name
Just don't lose what you know
Just don't lose what you know 
When your so far away 
What you lose is what you know 
Where you go is where you grow 
How near we've come has yet to show 
We've come so close yet so far away 
So far away
What did I do to you
What did I do to you 
What did I do to you 
What did I do to you 
Nothing seems to change 
Let alone you won't forget my name 
Just don't lose what you know 
Just don't lose what you know 
When your so far away 
What did I do to you 
So far away 
What did I do to you 
So far away 
What did I do to you 
So far away
What did I do to you

Beautiful

You're beautiful, 
just like Mary's son,
You spin around me like the Earth to the Sun...
And everything is a word I need,
Because without it I'm just like a disease
Slowly fading...

Chorus:
Could it be that you want more than your place in the Sun?
Could it be you've reached the end and you've only begun?
I will not waste my time here,
I will not waste my life here,
Waiting for you...

You're beautiful unlike anyone,
Like a whisper and a breeze you were gone.
You're everything that the heart would sing,
And now without you I'm just like a disease,
Slowly fading...

Chorus

You were faded,
Overrated,
But your beautiful this time...
Could it be that you were more than your place in the sun?
Could it be you've reached the end and you've only begun?
I will not waste my time here...

Chorus

Cuz' you're faded,
Overrated,
Cuz' you're beautiful this time...
You're so beautiful this time...
Yes you're beautiful this time...
You're so beautiful...
yeah

Don't Look Back

How does it feel up there
breathing in the fine air
You can't look down
but you do not care
when every face knows 
the lonely place you've become

And you can dream up there
with your soul laid bare
and close your eyes
on the life you share
and you can pretend that it won't mean a thing
when it's gone

Cuz now you see
you're so good looking
you should be on tv
but now you're on the radio

don't look back
don't look back
when you hear me calling
don't look back 
don't look back

don't look back
don't look back
when you hear me calling
don't look back
don't look back

How does it feel up there
breathing in the fine air
you can't look down
but you do not care
when every face knows
the lonely place you've become

And you can dream up there
with your soul laid bare
and close your eyes
on the life that you share
and you can pretend that it won't mean a thing
when it's gone

cuz now you see
you're so good looking
you should be on tv
but now you're on the radio

don't look back
don't look back

don't look back 
don't look back

don't look back
don't look back
when you hear me calling
don't look back
don't look back

when you hear me calling you
when you hear me calling you
when you hear me calling you

I know that nobody knows
where it comes from 
or where it goes
or the time you will find

don't look back
don't look back
when you hear me calling
don't look back 
don't look back

don't look back

when you hear me calling
don't look back

End up Alone
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

What I see is what's to be
Cartwheels to eternity
'Round and 'round my head she goes
In the good dreams though she wears no clothes 
Took our picture by the sea
The ocean waits to carry me 
Carry me back home again
To where she sleeps I lay my head
Saw her running barefoot but the ground there never touched her feet 
Watched her in the shadows while the tide came in and claimed our beach 
We could've made it in the dunes we had it all within our reach 
But I've got a lot of life to learn and you've got a lot of life to teach 
Why do we all end up alone
Why do we always have to find our way back home
Why do we all end up alone
We gather no moss just like a rolling 
What I say is what I mean
No definition in between
Couldn't make it in the movie scene
You couldn't stay on you couldn't stay clean 
What you wear is who you are
The odds are in and you'll go far
A penny for your thoughts you'll see
A nickel buys you what you need
Saw you on the big show saw you swinging from the big trapeze 
Standing on my tip toes while you brushed the dirt from off your knees 
Should have come as no surprise no one else here did have your drive 
You've got a big white stretch parked right outside but nobody there to share your ride 
Why do we all end up alone 
Why do we always have to find our way back home 
Why do we all end up alone 
Why do we all end up dead drunk or stoned 
What I know is what I hear
The ringing in my ears is clear
A monkey's got it made you see 
Swinging from the vine of a coconut tree 
Why do we all end up alone 
Why do we always have to find our way back home 
Why do we all end up alone 
We gather no moss just like a rolling stone
Why do we all end up alone 
Why do we always have to find our way back home
Why do we all end up alone
Why do we all wake up dead drunk or stoned
Dead drunk or stoned
Just like a rolling stone

Everything

I wont let you down, 
if I'm not around
and you will be free, 
and I will be myself
I wont fill your eyes with tears, 
if I lose all my fears
but who would I be? 
and would you recognize me?
tell me who would you see? 
when you say...

that I would be ours and you would be mine
and everything else here would work out just fine
if you could hold on, I could be everything
I could be everything...

I cant make up my mind, believe me I've tried
but I cant hold on...
I wont fill your eyes with tears, if I lose all my fears
but who would I be? and would you recognize me?
tell me who would you see?
when you say...

(repeat chorus)

I know that there's nothing in this world that you've known,
that I've shown, that could hurt you this way
and I wish that I had no part in this play,
and that we hadn't wound up this way
for I'd say...

that I would be yours and you would be mine
and everything else here would work out just fine
if we could hold on, we could be everything
we could be everything,
yes, we could be everything...

Bobby's in the basement making his movie
He paints a little picture but not to be cheesy
He wants this little girl to believe in him easy 
Bristles to the canvas imagining he feels high
Inspiration of my heart search for light out of the dark
All the pictures in my heart lie awake there in my fog
This oasis in my arms I approach it with disarm
Though it might do me some harm stop to catch me if I fall
Bobby's in the basement making his music
He never won't stop though not to abuse it
If there's some other way that they only would use it
He lives another day but they always refuse it
Lacerations of my heart
Dropped down in pieces in the dark
Mixed the words up on this page
Makes the purple turn to beige
Inspiration of my heart search for light out of the dark
All the pictures in my heart lie awake there in my fog
This oasis in my arms I approach it with disarm
Though it might do me some harm stop to catch me if I fall
It's just like Bob Dylan says... 
Stop depression of my own walk the only road I know
If I am only dreamin' then I am not that far from it
Sow the strength that grows from seeds worship creativity
If I am only dreamin' then me an' Bob are not that far today
So long as I'm young
Bobby's in the basement making his music
I search the beaches walk the sand
I cut my feet on broken glass
Strap the sandals on my feet
I'm run down but I still hit the street
Inspiration of my heart search for light out of the dark
All the pictures in my heart lie awake there in my fog
This oasis in my arms I approach it with disarm
Though it might do me some harm stop to catch me if I fall
It's just like Bob Dylan says...
Stop depression of my own walk the only road I know
If I am only dreamin' then I am not that far from it
Sow the strength that grows from seeds worship creativity
If I am only dreamin' then me an' Bob are not that far today 
So long as I'm young
Bobby's in the basement making his movie
He paints a little picture but not to be cheesy
He wants this little girl to believe in him easy 
Bristles to the canvas imagining he feels high
High
Inspiration of my heart
Desperation of my heart

Marvelous

So youíve been well
I couldnít tell
I know you better
Remember when
Spoken back then
Youíd come here again
I must admit I wasnít loving
And I was running from myself
Do seasons changing stir old feelings
And in conversation

Does my name still come up?
Was I marvelous?
You should have asked yourself before you turned me down
Your name still comes up
You are marvelous
I should have told myself before I let you down
Youíre marvelous

So Iíve been fine
Living my life
Though Iíve been better
So hereís to you
Breathing a new
Neglecting a few
I must admit that you were loving
And I was searching for myself
Do seasons changing stir old feelings
And in conversations

Does my name still come up?
Was I marvelous?
You should have asked yourself before you turned me down
Your name still comes up
You are marvelous
I should have told myself before I let you down
Youíre marvelous

Youíre marvelous

So how are you going to feel when you know itís so true
Youíll think of me when you say ďI doĒ
Excuse my state of mind
Did I spoil your valentine?
For all the length weíve walked in these shoes
Eternal faith youíve lost in me through
When youíre walking down the aisle
You wonít stretch another mile
The memories you visualize

You were marvelous once
My name will come up
I am marvelous
You should have told yourself before you let me down
Your name still comes up
You are marvelous
I should have told myself before I let you down
The memories you visualize
You were marvelous one time



Still Here
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

You hold tight to your tomorrow
Cuz thereís no one here except yourself
I did not come to beg or borrow
Were you expecting someone else

And I will be there to soften your fall
And I will be there for the good of it all
I will not let you feel youíve wasted all your time
And every day we have is one more day that youíll be mine
If my life is a flight and a crash in the sea
Iím still here but I can not speak the words

They say the rain will always follow
When youíre lost inside yourself 
The truth is not so easily swallowed
When you left me for someone else

And I will be there to soften your fall
And I will be there in the thick of it all
I will not let you feel youíve wasted all your time
And every day we had was one more day that you were mine
If my life is a flight and a crash in the sea
Iím still here

Born with a heart defect
I am a fatherís son
One day I will be here
The next day Iíll be gone
So could I steal a moment of your time
A dreamerís eyes are always open wide

I will not let you feel youíve wasted all your time
And every day we have is one more day that youíll be mine
If my life is a flight and a crash in the sea
Iím still here

Iím still here

The Joneses

Keeping up with the joneses
keeps you keeping out
as long as you have the will to get along
and what you do for you is never wrong
so don't you worry
don't you worry

and I was never keen enough
as long as this time is still ticking on the clock
but when your pretty face won't be enough
then I won't you want you won't to want to

you're wearing your corduroys and your diamond tooth
but you couldn't relate to the girl with the silver spoon
the lies that you're telling me are always true
it's true
you made a fool of me for believing you

so keeping up with the joneses 
keeps me hanging on
as long as I have the will to get along
and what I do for you is always wrong
but don't you worry
don't you worry
cuz I would never give it up
as long as this time's still ticking on the clock
but when your pretty face won't be enough
now won't you want to won't you want to

I love you the most when you are fast asleep
and whatever I do for you I'm still the creep
I realize that I'm not good enough
it's tough for sensitive men in a world that don't give a fuck

so keeping up with the joneses
keeps me hanging on
as long as I have the will to get along
and what you do for you is never wrong
but don't you worry 
don't you worry
cuz you would never give it up
as long as the time's still ticking on the clock
but when your pretty face won't be enough
then I won't you want to won't you want to

now even your corduroys are faded through
and when you're walking away
well I think it's a better view
the lies that you tell yourself
are always true
so true
and you keep on talking till your face is blue

keeping up with the joneses 
keeps you hanging on
as long as you have the will to get along
and what you do for you is never wrong
so don't you worry
don't you worry
and I would never give it up
as long as this time's still ticking on the clock
but when your pretty face won't be enough
now won't you want you won't you want you don't you want you don't you want to

fading like a wilted flower
even in our finest hour
all the dreams you realize
are sleeping here with me tonight
hhmmmmm
words are falling off the pages
letters kept locked like birds in cages
feeling like I've lost my mind
here forever missing you
in dreams of lavish gifts we hide
but if you'd wake up near me here
you'll find that

Chorus:
I would be the water of waves in 
oceans crashing on the shores of your body,
am forever sinking in your sand.
Don't have to look much farther,
Standing strong for you ,
I'd steal all the salt from the raging sea,
to bring back loves divinity today

pieces fall along the way
scattered thoughts of yesterday
if i could find a way
to put this back together again
a dream you keep inside your mind
and if you wake up near me
you will find

Chorus:
I would be the water of waves in 
oceans crashing on the shores of your body,
am forever sinking in your sand.
Don't have to look much farther,
Standing strong for you ,
I'd steal all the salt from the raging sea,
to bring back loves divinity today

look what you've got
look what you've got
cause you're not getting any younger than
today
fading like a wilted flower
this could be our finest hour
all the dreams you realize
are sleeping here with me tonight

Chorus:
I would be the water of waves in 
oceans crashing on the shores of your body,
am forever sinking in your sand.
Don't have to look much farther,
Standing strong for you ,
I'd steal all the salt from the raging sea,
to bring back loves divinity today

look what you've got

Great Divide

Back to Top

Every moment 
is a memory
on and on until eternity
but as far as any eye can see
there's a great divide

maybe we can find a way
to fall into each other's arms
and finally we can say nothing
tired of making same mistakes
with the same old bullshit lines
so maybe me should say nothing

every moment is our destiny
we can be just who we wanna be
or as far as any eye can see
there's a great divide

maybe we can find a way
to fall into each other's arms
and finally we can say nothing
tired of making same mistakes
with the same old bullshit lines
so maybe we should say nothing

all we are is everything that we'll become
and might have been 
all we are is everything that we'll become
and might have been 
all we are is a
moment passing on and on
and all we are is everything that we'll become
and might have been

tired of making same mistakes 
with the same old bullshit lines
so maybe we should say nothing
maybe we can find a way
to fall into each other's arms
and finally we can say nothing

Sometimes

Shadows they fall on the stage of your own life
Trailing behind footsteps
There's comfort in ghosts who are no longer with you
Hiding behind your death
I let you down you've lost your taste
I'm losing ground I fall from grace
Well just listen
Sometimes
You gotta set free what you love just to bring it back 
Would you ever lose me 
Would you ever let go for that 
And if the love is real you gotta let yourself go
Just to bring it back
Sometimes
Just to bring it back
Hiding inside my asylum I'm always
Hanging on by a thread
I can't expect you to respect me until I've
Learned to respect myself
I've let you down you've lost your taste
I'm losing ground I miss your face
Well just listen
Well just listen 
Sometimes
Sometimes
You gotta set free what you love just to bring it back! 
Would you ever lose me? 
Would you ever let go for that? 
And if the love is real you gotta let yourself go
Just to bring it back
Sometimes
Just to bring it back
I've let you down you've lost your taste
I'm losing ground I fall from grace
Well just listen
Sometimes
Sometimes 
Sometimes
You gotta set free what you love just to bring it back 
Would you ever lose me 
Would you ever let go for that 
And if the love is real you gotta teach yourself
Just to bring it back
Sometimes
Just to bring it back
Oh the love you're bringing back
Oh the love you're bringing back 
Sometimes
Sometimes
Just to bring it back
You gotta let go 


Bitter

In my heart, sent my confession my condolence
You're indefinite you're incompetent inconsiderate
You're so childish
I will push you out of what is real out of my head
You can stick and drown at your residence of disappointments
Are of yours to come
So embrace them oh my shallow one today
If I could change anything then I would change everything
These bitter days shall remain
I don't ask for your forgiveness I don't care much for your actress
That's just you though shallow and selfish
So I go now oh my hollow one today
If I could change anything then I would change everything
These bitter days shall remain
So carry your blues behind your eyes
Don't flatter yourself I will survive 
So carry your blues your own denial
Your feathers are gone you'll never fly
If I could change anything
Then I would wipe the years away
If I could change anything
Then I would wipe the years away
If I could change anything
Then I would change everything
These bitter days shall remain
Since you're gone I'm much better than you
So carry your blues behind your eyes
Don't flatter yourself I will survive 
So carry your blues your own denial
Your feathers are gone you'll never fly
She'll never fly

If you would just come back to me I would be so good! 
Put your trust back in me the least I think you should
We'll call it my pathology so I misunderstood! 
A bit selfish I should be if I could change I would
See it on my face! 
All I wanted was a friend to look in me to comprehend 
All I wanted was to fly how could you sit and watch me die? 
All I wanted was you there your cruelty was my despair
You just killed me so the story goes
Once upon a time there was a girl who loved me more than life itself
By the duck pond she said
Carved our names into the bark we climbed the tree
I slipped and fell behind
Now I'm sorry
If you would just come back to me I would be so good! 
Put your trust back in me the least I think you should 
We'll call it my pathology so I misunderstood! 
A bit selfish I should be if I could change I would
See it on my face! 
See it on my face... 
All reminds me of your name we sought fortune through the rain
Every day and every place everywhere I kissed your face
All the sacrifice in vain how could you put all the blame on me? 
That's not fair so the story goes
Once upon a time we had the moon we had the stars we were divine
Upon my shoulder she cried
Now she hides the faith she fears she throws herself
Before her bed of lies
She'll be sorry
If you would just come back to me I would be so good! 
Put your trust back in me the least I think you should
We'll call it my pathology so I misunderstood! 
A bit selfish I should be if I could change I would
See it on my face!... 
If you would just come back to me I would be so good! 
Put your trust back in me the least I think you should 
We'll call it my pathology so I misunderstood! 
A bit selfish I should be if I could change I would
If you would just come back to me! 
If you would just come back to me!... 
If you would just come back to me! 
See it on my face! 
It's alright
It's alright

 
 
She Won't Get Away

Staring at the ceiling, just another worthless feeling
yes, the jokes on me
And nothing can compare to you, a picture fades and I go blue
I make believe
And I slip quietly, deeper
Into a favorite memory where I keep her
Wrapped up tight, and I believe that she wont get away
from me

I try to hold this feeling, I'm so desperate I am kneeling
Watching for a sign
At the altar of devotion facing each and every ocean
until the end of time
And I slip quietly, deeper
Into a favorite memory where I keep her
Wrapped up tight, and I believe that she wont get away
from me

I remember how you looked
Standing in the pouring rain
From the pages of a book
We would always be the same
You would be always running away from me
from me

Everything i promised you
And every night you pulled me through is all we need

I'm staring at the ceiling please don't wake me if I'm dreaming
Lying close to you
to you

We slip quietly, into a perfect memory
I get weaker but its alright
'cause I believe that she wont get away
yes, I believe that she wont get away
yes, I believe that she wont get away
from me
 
 
 
The In Crowd

Spin away the combination for the last time
Say goodbye to this year
Wish I had a way to avoid the empty summer that awaits me
They'll drink and make a toast
Celebrating their new freedom
I'll sit alone on the couch
Coming undone

My girlfriends a remote control cause i
Can turn her on for hours at a time
and I don't think I've ever known a life
That i was part of the in crowd

Trun around another day another disgrace
Fall flat on my face
I wish I had a freakin license
Get a car and head out west
They'll smoke and burn it down
Rocking out with their new freedom
I'll sit alone on the couch
Coming undone

My girlfriends a remote control cause i
I have become emotionally paralyzed
And I don't think I've ever known a life
That I was part of the in crowd

Doesn't anyone hear the sound of my voice?
I'm talking so loud so noone has a choice
If I keep you near I'm such a satellite boy
And I'll disappear into a blue light void

Spin away the combination for the last time
Say goodbye to last year
Wish I had a way to avoid the empty summer that awaits me
They'll drink and make a toast
Celebrating new freedoms
I'll sit alone on the couch
Watching TV

My best friend has a perfect life and i
Live vicariously through the magic eye
And I know that I've never known a life
Where everyones got perfect teeth and hair
Selling everything from sex to underwear
I wonder what its like to have it all
To be a part of the in crowd

Theres a girl in the corner of a coffee house bar, I see her so clearly
She writing letters that she never will send, I want her completely
I am awake and dreaming
From her lips fall the words I'm feeling

I would be anywhere but here, if only I could disappear I would
With no fear that you would even miss me
And I would be anybody else, if somebody else was good enough for you
I feel

A memory is like a stone on the shoreline of your heart
But the waves crash in with the moon and tear your beach apart
I am aware I'm bleeding
My heart is a wound not healing

I would be anywhere but here, if only I could disappear I would
With no fear that you would even miss me
And I would be anybody else, if somebody else was good enough for you
I feel
Maybe you will even miss me when I'm gone
Maybe you will even miss me when I'm gone

I wish I never saw your face
I wish I never spoke your name
Upon the stars I lay the blame
They were the ones who knew my fate
My fate

I would be anywhere but here, if only I could disappear I would
With no fear that you would even miss me
And I would be anybody else, if somebody else was good enough for you
I feel
Maybe you will even miss me when I'm gone
Maybe you will even miss me when I'm gone
I'm gone


Sweeter Than

We, we were younger then
Now we're old again
We never should have stopped laughing
Now the sun will set, throwing shadows on
The happiness that we once had
Now I'm hung up like a frame
At the mention of your name
And I don't see how I'll ever live so good again

Its only in your head that you let go
But you don't even know which way the wind blows
And even when you're gone, you echo on and on
Theres too much space to fill without you here

Now, like a summer gone
yet you linger on
like the words on the tip of my tongue
even sweeter than when you sing again
but I never learned to sing along
now I'm hung up like a frame
with your picture or your name
and I don't see how we can ever be so good again

Its only in your head that you let go
But you don't even know which way the wind blows
And even when you're gone, you echo on and on
Theres too much space to fill without you here
Theres too much time to kill when you disappear
And I'm only as good as I make you feel

Its only in your head that you let go
But you don't even know which way the wind blows
And even when you're gone, you echo on and on
Theres too much space to fill
Its only in your head that you let go
But you don't even know which way the wind blows
And even when you're gone, you echo on and on
Theres too much space to fill without you here
And all my words alone, just disappear
They disappear

We, we were younger then
Now we're old again
We never should have stopped laughing



Down With The Ship
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top
Well itís been past four years since we went down in flames
In the mouth of the lionís den
While we held our heads
We held our breath
And one by one we lost our only friends
We traveled in fast company and kept up with the pace
But thatís no guarantee that we could ever win this race

We donít ask for much
Just a little to get by
Enough to keep us grounded while the rest are getting high
And while we play hard, while we keep it real
Search for water in this desert, we donít have to steal

Weíll go down with the ship
The captainís of our destiny
Weíll get on our way
With the wind against our backs
Weíll go down with the ship
Before we hand it over
Said over and over 
Again

We donít have much longer before we say goodbye
Theyíll be time enough tomorrow to look me in the eye
While we play hard, while we keep it real
Search for water in this desert we donít have to steal
Those days are long gone over
And just a word to the wise
Cuz if I never reach the end I sure have enjoyed the ride
We travel in fast company to keep up with this pace
Thereís one thing that I guarantee is that weíll win this race

Weíll go down with the ship
The captainís of our destiny
Weíll get on our way
With the wind against our backs
Weíll go down with the ship
Before we hand it over
Said over and over and over and over
Weíll go down with the ship
The captainís of our destiny
Weíll get on our way
With the wind against our backs
Weíll go down with the ship
Before we hand it over
I said over and over 
Again
Again
Down with the ship

Well, a man has two faces
But still heís half blind
Well, he searches with one eye
For what he wonít find
Well, he looks for her far
When she is near
When he calls out her name
She pretends she donít hear

If you loved her my friend donít take away her pride
You might love her again if in your heart you can find
The love that you knew

Well, the grass is always greener
On the other side
Well, itís hard to remember
Just how it looked in your eyes
Well, I know that I hurt you
But I paid the price ???
Well, itís hard to forget
Some memories will never fade

If you loved her my friend donít take away her pride
You might love her again if in your heart you can find
The love that you knew

If you loved her my friend donít take away her pride
You might love her again if in your heart you can find
If you loved her my friend donít take away her pride
You might love her again if in your heart you can find

Thereís no tomorrow

Moonlight has magic through the window
When it shines on the one you love
Donít step on cracks in the street
Make your wishes count on the clock
You donít leave your shoes on the bed
If you want to be with the one you love

And itís so, so hard to see
Your way in this world
And itís so, so hard to find 
A little peace of mind (mind)
And itís so, so hard I know 
Which way to go, which way to go 
Aww, but if thereís one thing that I know
Itís that I need you

Donít think too hard on the words you say
Donít dwell too long on yesterday
You donít leave your shoes on the bed
If you want to be with the one you love

And itís so, so hard to see
Your way in this world
And itís so, so hard to find

Wonder

Back to Top
Hidden thoughts that lie within the apathy of my own goal and dreams
I cry myself to sleep with all the insecurities of love and life itself
This big old rock
Has fallen smack in the middle of this road that I have sought for so long

And I wonder, and I wonder
Will I make it through the thunder
And I pray the Lord, he carries me
With one set of footprints on the sea
The sands of my past life
I wonder

I sit and soak
My nerves are shot; my soulís a sponge, the crutch I hold that keeps me up
I hold my feet up
As across the tracks I prayed good luck ????

And I wonder, and I wonder
Will I make it through the thunder
And I pray the lord, he carries me
With one set of footprints on the sea
And the sands of my past life
I wonder
And I wonder
And I wonder

You say that sorrow is better than the happiness weíre supposed to feel
Oh, you say that sorrow is better than the happiness weíre supposed to feel
With a sad face the heart grows wiser

So call me the wise men
Because my sorrow rises well above as I grow older, my shoulders wither
And I wonder, and I wonder

Whoís got time for faded words
Thereís nothiní new we havenít heard
I wish to hell that I could tell the truth
From all the lies we keep inside
Behind closed doors
Inside our minds
I pray to heaven, save us from ourselves
Well, here I am
Another day
A lifetimeís past since yesterday
Still I am no farther than before
Through all the roads and paths we walked
Endless nights alone we talked
Those miles will never mean a thing

And I (I) never thought we had a chance
So you (you) you should fly away, and I will fade 

Sometimes life can be so hard
You do your best and still youíre scarred
I like you better than myself
And on this point we disagree
You give your love, youíre never free
For, break your heart is somethiní I couldnít help

And I (I) never thought we had a chance
So you (you) you should fly away (fly away) and I will fade (and I will fade)

Have you got time for faded words
Iíve somethiní here you havenít heard
Wish to hell I could of told the truth
Well, thereís all these words I couldnít say
A lifetimeís past and gone away
Still I am no farther than before

And I (I) I think that maybe we had our chance
So you (you) you flew away, so I will fade (I will fade)
I will fade
You flew away
So I will fade
I will fade

Hey!
Well, morning out of bed, the carpetís red, well I know
The flood has started
The day goes so slow in below my head
I should have stayed in bed
My love, well I have lost
I paid the cost
I know I gotta get ahead
Weíll board a rendezvous, the Spanish few
Well I drew a picture perfect path

So I die, Weíd run
Though I havenít seen it yet viva Mexico
Then Iíd lie in my bed, in my bed

Iíve been battered, youíve been shuttered, weíre both in tutters
I know it doesnít matter
Well, my days and nights are cluttered
Well Iíve discovered Iím unkind
I think I better find
My love ??? and we could swear that weíd run
To a better place
So come round Iíll blow this town
Drinks are bound tip you down ????
Your hand in my hand

So Iíd die, weíd run
Though I havenít seen it yet viva Mexico
Then Iíd lie in my bed, once again
So Iíd die, weíd run
Though I havenít seen it yet viva Mexico
And Iíd lie in my bed, in my bed

Well, morning out of bed, the carpetís red
Well, I know a flood has started
???? and we could swear that weíd run
And find a better place

So Iíd die, weíd run
Though I havenít seen it yet viva Mexico
Then Iíd lie in my bed, once again

So Iíd die, weíd run
Though I havenít seen it yet viva Mexico
Then Iíd lie in my bed, in my bed, once again
In my bed, once again

On Her Way To Boston
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

Parked outside in a car down by the church this morniní
We never knew weíd get this far
The songs I played are chosiní
Never thought Iíd see you leave

I drive in my car
Asleep at the wheel
I dream about you
Sheís on her way to Boston

I woke last night in a cold dark room
The window pane had frozen
Some postcards, a letter, or a tune
Would hang you for a little while, a little while
Oh and as we sat upon my driveway
No words exchanged or spoken
Oh in each otherís arms, the silent charms 
Left us both heartbroken, yeah
As I rode down Spruceten Street

I drive in my car
Asleep at the wheel
I dream about you 
Sheís on her way to Boston
I drive in my car
Asleep at the wheel
I wonít forget you
Sheís on her way to Boston

Too young to think twice
Too young to know why
Sheís gone, well Iíve been thinking about our time together
Some fareweather
Sheís gone, sheís gone

Sheís on her way to Boston
I drive in my car
Asleep at the wheel
I dream about you
Sheís on her way to Boston
I drive in my car 
Asleep at the wheel
I wonít forget you
Sheís on her way to Boston, Boston

 
Castles Burning

Back to Top

The nickels you pick up
On the long dirty road
On your way to that castle in your mind
Wonít carry much weight
When the voice in your soul
Becomes louder then you
What if the castle is burning 
When you finally get it in sight
Listen to the voices that matter
Donít tell me youíve written of yesterdayís dreams
Bloodsuckers, liars and thieves
For a paperback novel
Can show you the page
But itíll never get naked
I might as well burn all your letters
I might as well cut off your fingers
Listen to the voices that matter
Your friends in the rain
Been placed in the cage
Awaiting your prostitute smile
You think youíd be able
To scrape off your labels
In a year
Youíve said that before
Theyíll tell you itís too late to change
Theyíll promise you things look better
Listen to the voices that matter
For the nickels you pick up
On the long dirty road
On your way to that castle in your mind
Wonít carry much weight
When the voice in your soul
Becomes louder then you
What if the castle is burning
When you finally get it in sight
I might as well burn all your letters
I might as well cut off your fingers
Listen to the voices that matter


Shipwreck Water
Back to Top

The rain dropped down at 7:20
so suddenly wasted water
harsh memories no matter how deeply buried
survive, they emerge
all my betrayed water runs
between soles of her feet
their average is torn
Normandy
wait, wait, fulfill your destiny's secret
try to find, try to find
no fear till the end of crime
that day in 1944
and a shipwreck water
Lou Ann lost her father
Lou Ann and her daughter walks from the crosses
for whom theyíve never known
the caretaker wipes the marble face with wet sand
to bring out the letters
Sometimes the faces on the marble reflect only
a picture of a dark haired man in spectacles
wait, wait, fulfill our destiny's secrets
try to find, try to find
no fear till the end of crime
the day in 1944
and a shipwreck water
Lou Ann lost her father
and a shipwreck water
Lou Ann never knew her father
father, father
rain dropped down at 7:20 as we watched
harsh memories no matter how deeply buried
all my betrayed water runs
between soles of her feet
their average is torn
Normandy 
and a shipwreck water
Lou Ann lost her father

Lou Ann never knew her father, father  
 
 
Lost You

Youíve found out what it is
Whatís without a cause
Thrown upon losses
I find it hard to achieve what comes so easy
Thrown upon roses
The darkness we feels spawns human hearts
Retreat from denial of my own
And the thoughts have been caged deep within my self
What if I lost
What if I lost you
What if I lost
What if I lost you
You found out all 27 out on the east end
Brought upon closeness
Well many times we walked upon the fine line
But have me crossed it
Donít walk out that door all torn apart
Donít try and the best
Outside my own
And the thoughts have been caged deep within my self
What if I lost 
What if I lost you
What if I lost
What if I lost you
Yeah
Dive down into the ocean
We walk
We both find it conclusive
Yeah, playing our parts
Our parts
The darkness we feels spawns human hearts
Retreat from denial of my own
And the thoughts have been caged deep within my self
What if I lost 
What if I lost you
What if I lost 
What if I lost you
What if I lost 
What if I lost you
What if I lost 
What if I lost you

Her Own Two Feet

Natalie Woodís ghost is haunting me
She looks just like you
Itís a shame my tastes are getting so old
So few
You flew down to Baltimore
With your brand new wings
I stayed and filled my life with useless, useless things
Doesnít really matter where we spend our time
Two years ago
Just another long goodbye
Your words have frozen in a cold November rain
Let me pretend that I donít care
Kimberley watches from afar
She wonít stand too close
Cause when Iím lost in my head
Is when I miss her the most
I wrapped you up inside my heart
And folded you up tight
Didnít realize you meant what you said
Meant what you said
Those days are over
No more splendor in the grass
Two years ago and itís fading fast
Itís all washed away with the castles and the sand
Canít tell tomorrow by the lies in your head 


Things We Said
(http://www.goninedays.com/)
Back to Top

By the town where you said youíd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind
Well maybe you donít quite remember
Lying there on your living room floor
With your parents over head we went to sneak up into your bed
In the mornings Iíd be sneaking out your door
Iíd do anything at all to make you happy
Anything at all to see you smile
Well lord knows I tried
But didnít always do right
Take back every tear I made you cry
By the town where you said youíd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind
Ah yeah
Five years ago I was much older
Time comes and takes it all away
To have and to hold to death do us part
Leaves me with a thousand things to say
I said sometimes I donít quite remember
What I did to make you leave
With the moon up over head
I lie awake alone in my bed
Without you itís so hard to be me
By the town where you said youíd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind
By the town where you said youíd still love me
By an ocean just seven miles wide
We could walk across that bridge
Watch the water flow under
Leave all our troubles behind

I know I'm young, but its the oldest I've ever been
I'm 23 now, halfway to 24
I'll never see these years again
so don't make me ask again, and hold out this old tin cup
just reach out for my reaching hands
and pull me up...

got no trouble staying thin
and might think that I've been blessed
lord you know that I'd say yes
god smiles upon the hungry, while you laugh...

in this second story novel, that I call home
up the stairs and down the hall
its just like turning the page
got no rugs upon my floors, but it'll have to do for now
but I'm only getting older...

and I worry about MISS ALVA MARIA
though she'll never even know that I exist
well we lost her 15 years ago, but I've been finding her all my life
there's something about the way she looks that moves me
there's something about the way she loves that moves me...

this stale cigarette smoke, still clings
to my shirt, my hair and my hands
well you know I ain't making jack, but you know that I'll be back
I've got nothing else to offer
I've got nothing else to offer
this is all I've got to offer...

and I worry about MISS ALVA MARIA
though she'll never even know that I exist
well we lost her 15 years ago but I've been finding her all my life
there's something about the way she looks that moves me
there's something about the way she loves that moves me
there's something about how she loses it all that moves me
wont you tell me what its like to be remembered?

I know I'm young, but this is the oldest I've ever been
I'm 23 now, halfway to 24 
I'll never see these years again...


Muddy Water

Back to Top

I spend most of my life with this guitar
Playing my songs
Playing the role of a juggler
Hard and long
My pieces of this puzzle my life
I canít fit together
I seem shattered, and darkened down weather
Lost forever
See no one
No guest of my reflection been drawn
See no one, no one, no one
So donít stir up this dirt in this puddle and settle at the bottom
Unfortunately I done stepped my foot in muddy water
I try and pace my steps in an ordinary fashion through the doorway
Unfortunately I done stepped my foot in muddy water
I rolled over on nickels
Rolled and got out
I just kept on walking
Not knowing who I was
Where was I scarred and bleeding
Through blurred vision I saw freshened lines
Across the horizon
I was out of my skull, I was torn, I was tired
See no one
No guest of my reflection been drawn
See no one, no one, no one
So donít stir up this dirt in this puddle and settle at the bottom
Unfortunately I done stepped my foot in muddy water
I try and pace my steps in an ordinary fashion through the doorway
Unfortunately I done stepped my foot in muddy water
So just down another shot itís just one more ache in the morning
Take another hit itís just one more cell youíll be killingí
Have another beer itís just a few more words youíll be yellingí
Go have your self a ball
And take two of these and call me in the morning
So donít stir up this dirt in this puddle and settle at the bottom
Unfortunately I done stepped my foot in muddy water
I try and pace my steps in an ordinary fashion through the doorway
Unfortunately I done stepped my foot in muddy water
Water, water

29 Year Old Girls

Back to Top

29 year old girls always got the blues
Well I donít know why but I know itís true
So give me burgundy to splash my breath
And while I count the ways that Iíve been blessed
We all find a savior in ourselves
Iím just another poet hero rhyming words
About falling stars and battle scars
Searching for ways to mend up broken hearts
We all find a savior in ourselves
Yeah we all find a savior in ourselves
And donít we always find a way
To lay waste to another day
And are we alive enough to say
That weíre good enough
And are we alive enough today
To know that weíre good enough
Thereís 29 days still left in June
And the summer sun sets me in the mood
So give me something dirty so Iím good to you
And I donít curse the day I let you through
Another poet hero finds the world is blind
There are no more familiar stars just drunks in bars
And thereís no way to mend a fucked up heart
We all find a savior in someone else
And donít we always find a way
To lay waste to another day
And are we alive enough to say
That weíre good enough
And did we live our last goodbye
And am I too late to apologize
Because I remember when we were alive
And we were good enough
I look for you in the faded background
And you find yourself in the scenery of my place
Some other time, some other place
Some other time, some other place
And didnít we always find a way
I stake my claim on the best of your days
We were alive enough to say
That we were good enough
And did we live our last goodbye
Itís never too late to apologize
And I remember when we were alive
And we were good enough
Yeah we were good enough
Yeah we were good enough
Yeah we were good enough

Waking up the Roosevelt and Hollywood
Steve and tom were doing a scene
I couldnít get by till half past three
In a year forget me not
I canít get back still I gotta stop
Who woulda thought that the wheels would fall off and crash down
I got caught in the rain
Goodbye to cocaine
It wore me out
I never knew how
But I found my way
Goodbye to cocaine
It wore me out
I never knew how
I never knew how to take
Middle of America
The midst of a dream
I never saw the sun set in new Orleans
Never saw a beach that was so far west of my ocean
But me and my friends in the magazines
we graced teen people and J14
I got a girl from the west coast
Sheís my ocean yeah
Cause all I am, Is all ill ever be
I got caught in the rain
Goodbye to cocaine
It wore me out
I never knew how
But I found my way
Goodbye to cocaine
It wore me out
I never knew how
I never knew how to take
Take what we get then we turn it around
And youíre lost and (then?) youíre found and you wanna give up
But its life that you love
Itís your life that you love
I got caught in the rain
Goodbye to cocaine

I never knew how
But I found my way
Goodbye to cocaine
It wore me out
I never knew how
I never knew how to take it all in

Wonderful
(Katie)
Back to Top

The days the nights,
the search for an angel
For lack of love
For what I used to be
A certain thing
a certain comfort
One last cloud is over me
She was the one
she was the warm air
She was the talk a best friend gave to me
Four lazy nights in new york city
High above eight-first street
And all my friends they say I'm careless like I've always been
Why donít I let my self love her like I should
She's wonderful to you
she's wonderful to me
So why cant I believe
she's wonderful with me, me
The way she walks
the way she wanders
The way she talks
a whisper to my ear
All of the things you take for granted
A far watch discover in a year
They always say they'd give up anything
They always say they watch her with a tear
Donít mean to fake, to be sarcastic
Why must my conscience disappear
All my friends they say I'm useless like I've always been
Why donít I let my self love her like I should
She's wonderful to you
she's wonderful to me
So why cant I believe
she's wonderful with me, me
Mirrors on the ceiling
Staring up at my reflection
Its not her that lies above me
All temptation
all the candy
All those phony faces
donít compare to your embraces
I think I've lost my patience
Always down and always wasted
And all my friends they say I'm careless like I've always been
I think I let myself love like I should
Sheís wonderful to you
She's wonderful to me
I think I can believe
She's wonderful with me, me


Something Has Gone Wrong

Face to face
And all at once
I'm staring at the life I want
And you, you were the most
I'm black and white
You're color blind
So dream of purple roses and the time
When we were the most
Could it be that I never let you go
And could you be the same girl I used to know
Cause I cant remember to forget
Thereís nothing here but a mountain, a pile of regret
You promised you would help me with the voices in my head
But some thing has gone wrong
Something has gone wrong
An empty space, but full of ache?
The perfect time for you to come and take
A thief in my home
I'm only gold, what should I be
A ransom paid in skipped heart beats to be
Not alone
Could it be that I never let you go
I wish you could be the same girl I used to know
Cause I canít remember to forget
There's nothing here but a mountain, a pile of regret
You promised you would help me with the voices in my head
But something has gone wrong
Something has gone wrong
Iím walking in the footsteps of the wounded and insane
Tryin? to find the darkness thatís running through my veins
Something has gone wrong
Something has gone wrong
Cause I cant remember to forget
There's nothing here but a mountain, a pile of regret
You promised you would help me with the voices in my head
Something has gone wrong
Something has gone wrong


Reality TV

Joe Millionaire
He lived a life that was fair
He worked construction
Although he wasn't happy there
Down in the alley
At the street fair
He saw a necklace
With a voodo charm of monkey hair
He was
So alone so alone
Now these women
They're competing for him

Everybody's talking about reality TV
I dunno it seems to be
A bunch of crap to me
But maybe if I win a contest
I can be like all the rest
American I don't have it
Someone else create myself
But I don't watch much TV (But that's just me)
The only the that's real this time
Is me

Justin was fair
He looked good in curly/girly hair
Then he got lucky with Kelly
And made a movie there
In Hollywood now he's got a record deal
But he was never too satisfied with the songs he'd steal
Why don't you
Sow your own sow your own
Wait a minute we'd forgotten that he don't care

Everybody's talking about reality TV
I dunno it seems to be
A bunch of crap to me

The only the that's real this time

I just laugh it off
(Every time I see somebody on the television)
I just laugh it off
(Every time I see another bachelor or some sort of actor)
I just laugh it off

So it was fun we had this great little song
Until it went number one and then tomorrow gone
And all we could see when we came up for air
Just a label full of monkeys trying to spike our hair

Everybody's talking about reality TV
I dunno it seems to be
A bunch of crap to me
But maybe if I win a contest

You know I didnít mean them
Youíre not getting old
So what if itís true

I pretend, but I donít wanna be alone
So wonít you let me turn the key?
You know that youíd be lost without me
Sometimes itís better the devil that you know
Donít give up on me
Iím coming in the window
Iím getting bold (bored?)
Canít keep away from one divide
You never wear a disguise
You see through it all
Iím awake and I believe
That the good things donít come easy
I Spin around your earth just like the moon
So if you can find a way
To forgive, forget your bruises
Sometimes its better, the devil that you know
So what if itís true
Iím not going anywhere without you
And I pretend but I donít wanna be alone
So from me to you
On my sleeve I wear what I choose
Itís better the devil that you know
So hereís my only truth
Iím not going anywhere without you
And I pretend but I donít wanna be alone
So wonít you let me turn the key?
You know that youíd be lost without me

Catch Me If You Can

I feel alive before a show
Iím only happy with a road that leads across to San Francisco
See through ice on the back window
Moonlight reflecting off the snow
itís been some time since Colorado
now Iím already gone
catch me if you can
I will
Get out of New York again
Though I promise you Iíll always come back home
And weíll never be alone
Broken down on the side of the road
Unhitched trailer, songs of gold
Alabama's watching us grow
Southern stars and glasses of wine
Golden girl in Carolina
Seventeen if her mother only knew
Now Iím already gone
Catch me if you can
I will
Get out of New York again
Though I promise you Iíll always come back home
ĎCause its here amongst my own
Iíve always got my home
And weíll never be alone
I asked her by the riverside
I held her under summer skies
Iím sorry for Chicago plane ???
I missed her with Seattle rain
Sitting on side of stages
With the girl I met that evening
Beautiful in every feeling
Every time my hearts been stealing
Catch me if you can
I will
Get out of New York again
Though I promise you Iíll always come back home
And youíll never be
Catch me if you can
I will
Get out of New York again
Though I promise you Iíll always come back home
ĎCause its here amongst my own
I always got my home
And weíll never be alone
Never be alone


The Moment
(Katie)
Back to Top

I can see that someone went and left you hanging from a string
And if I pulled hard I could make you do most anything
You can run from the past but mistakes are meant to last
Between the lines these are mine

The moment that you go is the moment that you know
That the best thing in your life is happening
So look me in the eye
And say youíll never say goodbye
I know the best thing in my life is happening now

You can tell your father I know that he wonít let you be
Doesnít wanna believe that you see him in me
But the way that you lay so serene inside the gloom
I donít care
I donít care

The moment that we go is the moment that weíll know
That the best thing in our life is happening
So before we say good bye and leave them all behind
Know the best thing in our life is happening now
And I wonít let you ever fade
Like a sunburn wasted in L A
And if we fall down breaking all along the way
Iíll lift you up and thatís a promise that Iíll never break
And then you wonít and then you wonít

We sit on the steps reading graffiti on the wall
The smile on your face, more than words it says it all
On your way you will find the meaning in the rhyme
You are mine
You are mine

The moment that you go is the moment that you know
That the best thing in your life is happening
Before we say goodbye
Just look me in the eye
I know the best thing in my life is happening now


17 and 33
(Katie)
Back to Top

I can remember getting out never
Back in my high school acting like damn fool
Solid as woods under my feet
A farther stretching past the concrete
And I would accomplish more than I thought so
Jump in the backseat of a camaro
I could let go all that I can
She would make me into a man

Back in the country I was oh so young but much too old back then
For leaving cap le moine
On top of baleís of hay waiting for grandmaís party
we laughed and sang songs in the wind
Do you remember in September
I was 17 she was 33
Oh, where has my life gone
Since she was naked we were wasted
In my many dreams since then it seems funny
I only get younger with each every summer
But more of a man
I feel that I am, am

Dust off the radio down behind the backstop
Kids with the top down drinkin in the back lot
Lazy nights on through July heat
Pretty good we got the cops beat
Jammin in the garage pluggin in guitars
Wearing Kiss makeup turning that **** up
Dig my roots from the earth of this town
I get my chance in the world to get out

Back in the country I was oh so young but much too old back then
For leaving cap le moine
On top of baleís of hay waiting for grandmaís party we laughed
And sang songs in the wind
Do you remember in September
I was 17 she was 33
Oh, where has my life gone
Since she was naked we were wasted
In my many dreams since then it seems funny
I only get younger with each every summer
But more of a man
I feel that I am, am

A smile of a child is all (that) I was
With freedom and wide open eyes
Those memories are not forgotten
Iíve gotta get back to my heart

Do you remember in September
Down on my knees falling autumn leaves
Oh, she turned down my offer
Then I went crazy but I made it in a concert scene
Through a Springsteen lyric
Iíll only grow older if I keep looking over
My shoulder and then I know who I am

Do you remember 17 and 33
Do you remember concert tees and record sleeves
Do you remember 17 and 33
Oh, I only get younger
With each every summer
Just stuck in my heart

Nothing Better
(Katie)
Back to Top

It would've been easier I know
If I would've been around
And now it's time to pack up and reload
And get up off the ground

Everything I do
Is not enough for you

But when everything is good
When everything is fine
When I can't say the words
That live inside my mind
We fall apart so easily sometimes
But when everything is good
There's nothing better

There once was a time when you'd believe
Anything could be
But disappointments do build up
Too hard for you to see

Everything I do
From memories of you

When everything was good
When everything was fine
I did say the words
And you became mine
We fall apart so easily sometimes
But when everything is good
There's nothing better

Once I was a boy
Who fell into a dream
Of you
Now I am a man
I fall into that dream
Every night

But when everything is good
When everything is fine
When I can't say the words
That live inside my mind
We fall apart so easily sometimes
But when everything is good
It's good
But when everything is good
It's good

There once was a time when you believed...

Brand New Me
Back to Top

I could not change
I could not be
who you need me to be
so I lay down my arms
and I will fight no more

give my wounds some time to heal
so I cannot feel
let me be numb so I can smile
and fake it for a while

Just give me faith and give me love
let it fall from up above
give me something I don't know
that I do not recognize

A brand new face
a brand new soul
let me rise up from the old
become someone you don't know
that you will not recognize

If I knew your memory
looking back what would I see
were you different on your own
how could I know

Is it easier to heal
do you break now just to feel
a little something after all
and now something is gone

just give me faith and give me love
let it fall from up above
give me something I don't know
that I do not recognize

A brand new face
a brand new soul
let me rise up from the old
become someone you don't know
that you will not recognize

Following your will that I'll get there for you
sorry if I talk too much and bore you
I hear the voices in my head
but I never listen to them

just give me faith and give me love
let it fall from up above
give me something I don't know

A brand new face
a brand new soul
let me rise up from the old
and become someone you don't know

Just give me wind upon my back
let me sail I won't come back
take me somewhere I don't know
that I do not recognize

A brand new place to call my own
let me rise up from the old
become someone you don't know
that you will not recognize
that you will not recognize
that you will not recognize


Worse Than It Seems
Back to Top

I need to see you for a moment half undressed
Need to remember what you looked like endless
Weíre in danger of a crash landing
And I donít want to be the one left standing
Without a shadow cast by your sunlight
Another victim under pressure wrapped too tight
Well youíre neurotic and I think I share the blame
But am I crazy if I think Iím insane?

Say so long, goodbye, itís alright
I live the lonely life that they write
In magazines and movie scenes
Itís so much worse than they make it seem
When all along you watched me stumble
To find the words and only fumble
The beauty queens that steal the scenes
Itís so much worse than they make it seem to be

I hope I didnít give away the tragic ending
We broken people have a way of quick mending
You slow dancing on the wood floors
No drinking spirits till we pass out anymore
You said youíd write me when the train stops moving
But I donít understand the point youíre proving
Well now youíre gone again
Like you always are
Yet you donít that I donít care just how far

Say so long, goodbye, itís alright
I live the lonely life that they write
In magazines and movie scenes
Itís so much worse than they make it seem
When all along you watched me stumble
To find the words and only fumble
The beauty queens that steal the scenes
Itís so much worse than they make it seem to be

And I was sure youíd realize that you made a mistake
How did leaving me come so easy for you
When youíd never break

I need to see you for a moment half undressed
Need to remember why I was so impressed
If weíre the victims of a crash landing
Somehow I know Iíll be the one left standing

Say so long, goodbye, itís alright
And when it comes I read what they write
In magazines and movie scenes
When all along you watched me stumble
You build me up and let me crumble
You drama queens you steal the scenes
Itís so much worse than they make it seem to be


7 Windsor Ct
Back to Top

There's a big white house in the court with a church in the middle
This is my lighthouse it used to watch over me from the room
There's no unlocked doors or open windows for me anymore
If I slept at your door holding flowers in your name on the walk
Would it make, would it make a difference?
And I know this broken road won't last for long
I know there's no windows for me anymore
There's a big black hole in the heart with a face in the middle
She was my whole world I watched her crumble to dust in my eyes
I remember she'd to stand on the steps just to reach for a kiss
How we tried to hold on
There's a big white house that my soul still lives in with your name on the wall
Is there something, is there something I'm missing?
And I know this broken road won't last for long
I know there's no windows for me anymore
And I know this wish for change won't last for long
And I know there's no reason for me to hold on
There's a big white house that my soul still lives in, 7 Windsor Court
I'll never go there again
And I know this broken road won't last for long
And I know there's no reason for me to hold on


Outside Yourself
Back to Top

You can't just come around here making wars without faces
No identities left for mistaken
You look just fit to be tied in your own vacation trying to make your presence stable
Oh I've seen most of my friends makes themselves right and able
In their own little world of a fairy tale
They've got living room furniture, a crock-pot, you're tired you'd work the early shift early morning
Soldiers falling I'm still standing
One step to my own torn hatred
You fall and you talk in your sleep
Your only voices heard outside yourself
Settle down because right now I can't help you
It's turning me off all of this stolen pressure
Well it's our fault but you don't really notice
The Earth beneath you is open up to swallow
You fall and you talk in your sleep
Your only voices heard outside yourself
I could just pace myself all night down my ladder
With no rest room needing attention
They found me outside your door lying over broken bottles
Next to a Technicolor yawn on the fourth step
We're just two souls amongst spirits bad experience behind shadows
What's left of what we were once a part of
Right now you're but a fence man once was a bass man
I could look to my right there you're standing
Soldiers falling I'm still standing
One step to my own torn hatred
You fall and you talk in your sleep
Your only voices heard outside yourself
Settle down because right now I can't help you
It's turning me off all of this stolen pressure
Well it's our fault but you don't really notice
The Earth beneath you is open up to swallow
You fall and you talk in your sleep
Your only voices heard outside yourself
Yourself


Nine Days of Rain
Back to Top

Does it rain like it rains here on Fifth Street?
Nine days long the rain drops finding what's wrong with this roof I've raised over my head
Does time fly like it does here on the Second floor?
Five ways to go but only one place to be
If only I could get there from here
If only I could get there today
If only I could get there today
I wish it was simple like a train
Ride behind windows invisible while towns pass like sand through fingers
I wish it was simple like color flashes in the soul
Like two phones connected to imaginary friends that you might not know how it gets
That you might not know how it gets
That you might not know
And if it was simple like a smile on paper plate faces instead of pages on souls with no words
Does it rain like it rains here on Fifth Street?
Nine days long the rain drops finding what's wrong with this roof I've raised over my head
If only I could get out of here today
I wish I could get out of here today
If only I could get out of here today


All My Reasons
Back to Top

My eyes held open far from boredom in a Medford machine shop
Now tell me never one situation I'll uncover some shop
Well what could I do about it when no one knows my existence?
Can anyone hear my music?
Can anyone hear my music?
But I did not know, I did not know, I did not know
But I did not know, I did not know, I did not know
The more I find that all my reasons are all my answers
I keep waiting
The more I find that all my reasons are all my answers
I keep waiting, waiting
I've been standing here singing someone else's songs to make a quick buck
When I'm down town New York City serenading non stop
Well what could I do about it when no one knows my existence?
Can anyone hear my music?
Can anyone hear my music?
But I did not know, I did not know, I did not know
But I did not know, I did not know, I did not know
The more I find that all my reasons are all my answers
I keep waiting
The more I find that all my reasons are all my answers
I keep waiting, waiting


A Bit of Truth
Back to Top

I've fought indecision, this killing disease
I stand still my animal bleeds on
Place some bets on others as they bet upon you
Put you down and out they categorize you
But you're only device is to never think twice
Call me a dreamer, that's all I am
Do this to your reasons just shut your mouth and say we're in the sky over again
Your immaturity it shows how clueless you are
This life this field
How old are we now?
Don't get me wrong I still miss the good years
When we laughed, sang, we had a few beers
But you're only device is to never think twice
Call me a dreamer, that's all I am
Caught up in reasons just shut your mouth and say we're in the sky over again
I'm glad I can still help you with your songs
Your words, you're such a poet, you think of it all
At least you could have given me some one of the song
And not a joke from your circus you circus show clown
But you never think twice
You call me a dreamer and that's alright
What good is to your reasons, shut your mouth and say we're in the sky over again


Making Amends
Back to Top

Got these new shoes and I don't want to walk on water just yet
Still trying to keep my, keep my soul dry but it ain't easy
I still got this old coat but the ind don't sympathize
It slips right through, makes itself comfortable on my bones
but Sarah, she's a blanket, that covers up my heart. she don't let the cold outside get in
She's got stars up on the ceiling that give her piece of mind tonight
Clear away the distance
It's easier to walk alone, the farther I get away, the closer I get to home
Got these memories but I don't want to cash them in just yet
Living on the interest and the promises I've got tucked away
But it ain't easy waiting for tomorrow when as of yesterday it's here today
But we can come on out and fake it and can cover up our hearts
Don't let this world outside get in
We can stare up at the ceiling trying to find piece of mind tonight
Clear away the distance, it's easier to walk alone, the closer I am to you, the farther I am from home
Well I've walked a little while and the wear is starting to show
Travel down on roads past places I used to know
I still got this old coat but you know I really don't mind
As I slip right in, make myself comfortable, make myself at home


This Music
Back to Top

Well as I drive from rehearsal I drive down past familiar places
These songs and old acquaintance you can scrape their faces from the pages
Oh I when I first, when I first met you, you came as a crisp clean face on a sleeve
I've grown to some religion and I fall down to my knees
And I don't know if I could make it by without you
No I don't know if I'll make it by
Maybe it's all I got, all I got, all I got
Maybe it's what I've got, what I've got, what I've got
Maybe it's what I want, what I want, what I want
Oh I will never lose heart, oh yeah
Well it's hard here on Long Island to be an artist and speak your mind
Everybody pays too much attention to all **** that's going on, going on
Tonight we'll be together
A little heart and soul no thieves unfolded
No cover scene bull**** for tonight I'm yours and tonight your mine won't you share my mind
Maybe it's all I got, all I got, all I got
Maybe it's what I've got, what I've got, what I've got
Maybe it's what I want, it's what I want, what I want
And I will never lose heart
I will never lose heart
Tonight we'll be together
A little heart and soul no thieves unfolded
No cover scene bullshit for tonight I'm yours and tonight your mine won't you share my mind
Maybe it's all I got, all I got, all I got
Maybe it's what I've got, what I've got, what I've got
Maybe it's what I want, what I want, what I want
Oh this music, this music
Maybe it's all I got, all I got, all I got
Maybe it's what I've got, what I've got, what I've got
Maybe it's what I want, what I want, what I want
Oh I will never lose heart
I will never lose heart
This music


Where You Going Now?
Back to Top

Where you going now that you ain't been before?
The same worn out roads behind the same old doors
I could wait here for you for a thousand years or more
But I probably won't look all that good then so why won't you just come around now
I've got questions deeper than you want to go
There's no need to argue or put up all this show
And if I were a king there'd be dust upon my throne
But I can't even reach the doorway to get out on my own
Oh, I could wait for an hour
Oh, I could wait for a day
Oh, when you get where you're going take a good look around and you'll see where you are today
I've got questions deeper than you want to go
There's no need to argue or put up all this show
I might know the words to sing to you a song
But I can't reason my convictions knowing something's wrong
Something's wrong
Where you going now that you ain't been before?
The same worn out roads behind the same old doors
I could wait here for you for a thousand years or more
Ah, but I'm probably going to look like **** right around then so why won't you just come around now
Come around now
Oh, we could sit here forever
Oh, we could waist all our time
Oh, when we get where we're going take a good look around and we'll see
And we'll see

Dirty Poet
Back to Top

I'm losing sleep again
Will this ever end
Cuz I've been up at all hours
Even poets take showers
Sometimes we just don't come clean
And if I dream again
This will be the end
Cuz if we ever loved each other
Then it's time we discovered
It's no way to go through life

And it's more then I can bare
To watch the tears fall through your hair
As you shake your head
From side to side
You lie and say your alright
But I can tell the fountains
From the well
Cuz your my heaven
I'm your hell
And you make a wish on falling stars
Wish I could fall into your arms again

I'm losing sleep again
Will this ever end
Cuz I've been up at all hours
Even poets take showers
Sometimes we just don't come clean
And if I dream again
This will be the end
Cuz if we ever loved each other
Then it's time we discovered
It's no way to go through life

And it's more then I can stand
To watch you hide your naked hand
As you shake your head
From side to side
You lie and say your alright
But I can tell the fountains
From the well
Cuz your my heaven
I'm your hell
And you make a wish on falling stars
Wish I could fall into your arms again

But I'm losing sleep again
Will this ever again
Cuz I've been up at all hours
Even poets take showers
Sometimes we just don't come clean
And if I dream again
This will be the end
Cuz if we ever loved each other
Then it's time we discovered
That it's no way to go through life

It's no way to go through life
It's no way to go through life
It's no way to go through life
It's no way to go through life
It's no way to go through life


I'd Go Crazy
Back to Top

I drive in the rain
With the window open
But it's not the same
When everything has changed
But while you're still near
I'll try anything
And I'll say all the things that you said you wanted to hear...
But the words inside my head
Are better left unsaid
To lie like the ghosts beneath my bed... (oh yeah)

Don't you know that I'd go crazy!
But I've nothing left to give
Though I missed you for a while
Don't you know that I'd go crazy!
But you're on your own tonight
Though you know I missed your smile...

And you, you can't take back
Half of what you give
And you won't remember
Half the life you've lived
But while you're still here
I'll do anything
And I'll say all the things you said you needed to hear...

Don't you know that I'd go crazy!
But I've nothing left to give
Though I missed you for a while
Don't you know that I'd go crazy!
But you're on your own tonight
Though you know I missed your smile
Though you know I missed your smile...

The words inside my head
Are better than the words I've said
As always...

Don't you know that I'd go crazy!
But I've nothing left to give
Though I missed you for a while
Don't you know that I'd go crazy!
But you're on your own tonight
Though you know I missed your smile...
Don't you know that I'd go crazy!...
But I've nothing left to give
Though I missed you for a wile
Don't you know that I'd go crazy!
But you're on your own tonight
Though you know I missed your smile...


Oklahoma City
Back to Top

Betty was a blonde blue eyed baby
Who marked her first birthday on easter morning
but her parents had other reasons to celebrate that day

Betty had just learnt to walk by herself
and her mother's got a new job just downtown
cross from the Phillip P. Murrah in an office tower

But they don't like to see the children play
they don't like the government so what have they done
all the toys are covered in blood
a little fire truck is broken

Well I guess that they think it'd be better
to reign down in hell
than to serve up in heaven
well the devil's got a seat next to him
Oh Timmy, he's waiting

Where was god?
and don't you tell us how he works in mysterious ways?
for when all is lost we're tired
of hearing that line

Where was god?
and do you think that she'll find the faith that she needs?
for when all is lost and gone... and gone...

well they don't like to see the children play
they don't like the government so what have they done
all the toys are covered in blood
a little fire truck is broken... is broken...

{Brian} where was god?
{John} they don't like to see the children play
{Brian} don't you tell us how he works in mysterious ways
{John} they don't like the government so what have they done
{Brian} for when all is lost and gone... and gone...

But at least we have our thoughts to remember
the pictures of you, we treasured a few
never forget that god bless the people... of Oklahoma City
never forget that god bless the people... of Oklahoma City
never forget that god bless the children... of Oklahoma City


See You In A Crowd
Back to Top

Sometimes I think I see you in a crowd
so far away from home
but I still turn around
sometimes I think that maybe you've come back to save me
and the missing piece of my life has been found

and I don't wanna know
too much of this pain I already hold
and I don't wanna see
what is it meant to be

sometimes I think that maybe you still care
then I realise that you'd still be there
to let me touch your shoulder
to watch as we grow older
then I realise that life ain't fair

I don't wanna know
too many memories with little hope
and I don't wanna see
what is it meant to be

Sometimes I think I see you in a crowd
so far away from home
but I still turn around
sometimes I wish for days... that have already come and gone...
for second chances

and I don't wanna know
too much of this pain I already hold
and I don't wanna see
what is it meant to be


Behind An Old Blue Vase 
Back to Top

Lying here on the floor
Wondering where my absent friends are
Been sleeping on a bed of thorns
Itís my faith in you that keeps me warm
Behind an old blue face
Thereís a picture of your face

Sometimes you talk too loud to be ignored
But Iíll listen thatís what Iím here for
I know Iíll wait for a day that wonít come
I know for you lifeís just begun
I read your old letters one by one
So if you wonder what youíve done

Take it from me; I know a lot about losing
Itís not what it seems; sometimes itís not your own choosing
Nothingís for free, you ache for every moment
Take it from me; I know a lot about losingÖ

Here behind an old blue vase
Hangs a picture of your face
Every memory has its place
Say for you my saving grace

Take it from me; I know a lot about losing
(Know a lot about losing)
Itís not what it seems; sometimes itís not your own choosing
(It's not your own choosing)
Nothingís for free, you ache for every moment
(Ache for every moment)
Take it from me; I know a lot about losingÖ


Waiting on the Corner 
Back to Top

Standing here, all alone,
on the corner by her door
said to wait, you might be late
but I was that too and now it's half past eight

Well my friends they all, got it made
me, I can't stop from losing my pay
gets so bad, I don't know where I am
time sure flies and now it's quarter to ten

And I don't even remember, why I'm here
Oh but if you should suddenly appear it might come back to me (ohyeah)
cause I ain't got it all that bad
you listen close and you might understand
I might have loved, I might have lost
but I can't change a thing now, whatever the costs

Well we missed again, that's alright
we'll try once more another night
it's days like these, that make it hard
you try my patience, you try my heart

I don't even remember, why I'm here
Oh but if you should suddenly reappear
I'm sure that it will come right back to me (ohyeah)
cause I ain't got it all that bad
I thought you'd be the one to understand
we might have loved, we might have lost
but I can't change a thing now, whatever the costs

standing here, all alone,
on the corner by her door
you said to wait, you might be late
but that was on Tuesday, now you're three days late

(ohoh... oh oh...)
(ohyeah)

cause I ain't got it all that bad, even know you might not understand
I might have loved, I might have lost
but I wouldn't change a thing now, whatever the costs


Tuesday Morning 
Back to Top

I hurt you like I do
When I'm forgiven
I throw you out abandoned
Taking you for granted
I hurt you like I do
And then, you're driven
To the edge of anger
A restless as I stagger

Someone mentions why the tales've been written
Do I have a handle
I'm burnt beneath the candle
I'm torn by whispering words others spoken
Dropped within the circus
I'm clueless what's your purpose
As far as I can stand

Sullen with dement
Of useless cares on earth
They're soaked in my blood
Well maybe I'm already dead

Tuesday morning
Monday walking
Someone stop him
Tuesday morning
I was lost and
You were lost and
Tuesday morning
By the schoolyard

I hurt you like I do
A tale's forbidden
Tragically they linger
Scar you I should never
I hurt you like I do
When I'm beginning
Stabbing me with pleasure
My own hands are the dagger
As far as I can stand

Bloated with dement of guilty promises
They're soaked in my blood
Well maybe I'm already dead, maybe I'm already gone

Tuesday morning
Monday walking
Someone stop him
Tuesday morning
I was lost and
You were lost and
Tuesday morning
By the schoolyard

Well maybe she's done
She's already gone
Have I lost this love divine
Well I love you if I could find.... you
But I hurt you like I always do
I hurt you like I do
I hurt you like I do

Tuesday morning
Monday walking
Someone stop him
Tuesday morning
I was lost and
You were lost and
Tuesday morning
By the schoolyard
Tuesday morning
Monday walking
Someone stop him
Tuesday morning
I was lost and
You were lost and
Tuesday morning
By the schoolyard
Tuesday morning
