Am I Missing
Sharp disaster in a fresh new coma
Was it worth it when it was over
Proving yourself right
You'd make the biggest noise
Well.. I'd lock my hands behind my head
I'd cover my heart and hit the deck
I'd brace myself for the impact if I were you
(It's a long wait) is there anything
(For an answer) worth looking for
As Lovers Go
She said "i've gotta be honest,
You're wasteing your time if you're fishing round here."
And i said "you must be mistaken,
Cause i'm not fooling...this feeling is real"
She said...she said "you gotta be crazy,
What do you take me for? Some kind of easy mark?
"No, you've got wits, you've got looks,
You've got passion, but I swear that you've got me all wrong."
Bend And Not Break
I catalog these steps now
Decisive and intentioned
Precise and patterned specifically to yours.
I'm talented at breathing
So that my chest will rise and fall with yours
I'm careful not to wake you
It's better just to hold you
Carry This Picture
Carry this picture for luck
Kept in a locket
Tucked in your coller
Close to your chest
Make it a secret
Shown to the closest friends
And meet me at quarter to 7
The sun will still shine then
At this time of year
We'll head to the inlet
Carve Your Heart Out Yourself
Carve your heart out yourself
Hoplessness is your cell
Since you've drawn out these lines
Are you protected from trying times
Man it takes a silly girl to lie about the dreams she has
Lord it takes a lonely one to wish that she had never dreamt at all
Oh look now
There you go with hope again
Ghost Of A Good Thing
I guess it's luck, but it's the same
Hard luck, you've been trying to tame
Maybe it's love, but it's like you said
Love is like a role that we play
But I beleive in you so much
I could die for the words that you say
But I beleive in you so much
I could die from the words that you say
Breathe in for luck.
Breathe in so deep.
This air is blessed, you share with me.
This night is wild, so calm and dull.
These hearts, they race, from self-control.
Your legs are smooth, as they graze mine.
We're doing fine.
We're doing nothing at all.
My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
Hey girl, youve got a smart way
About you that makes me wish that I was smart enough for you
Hey girl, youve got a fine laugh
And I think that I can get used to that
And you're already used to laughing at me
So what if your friends think Im crazy, well
I wasn't trying to impress those girls anyway
They're all theories and no action
Where Im from we live like it's the latest attraction
Morning calls for pain relief
A line above the step beneath
The worst that you could do
And the best that you could hope for
Is hardly the best
Tepid water chase the pills
With turpentine and chamomile
And don't get cheap with the wine
You need to be up all of the time
Rapid Hope Loss
You called to say you wanted out.
Well, I can't say I blame you now.
Sometimes you've got to fold
Before you're found out.
Well thanks for waiting this long to show yourself.
Cause now that I can see you,
I don't think you're worth a second glance.
So much for all the promises you made, they served you well
Several Ways To Die Trying
You should have warned us it gets so cold here
And the night can freeze before you set a fire
And our flares go unnoticed, diminished
Faded just as soon as they are fired.
We are, we are, intriqued
We are, we are, invisible
Oh how we shouted, how we screamed
I heard that you were home again,
But you don't look like you're back to me
But if your focus is changing,
Your gaze is transfixed on the part that I cannot see
You've got your new ties,
I've got your old lies,
You've got your inside lines
But you're never happy with what you've got
