Pete Yorn – Paradise Cove lyrics

Play me a song...
Play me a song
Sing your heart out
Expecting the sun
I got what I wanted and it wasn't enough
I got what I wanted when you showed up
I got what I wanted and it's never enough

I drove out to the white trash beach
On a brief vacation
I'd felt freer than I had in a long time
I wondered if it's cause you were gone

I got what I wanted when you showed up
I got what I wanted and it's wasn't enough
I got what I wanted when you showed up
I got what I wanted and it's never enough

Surfers protect the actors from flashers
Fathers and sons talk it out like brothers
The water doesn't sting as much in the summer
The waves can carry you home

To the girl with the shapes and another life
A freckled complexion and squinting eyes
You want so much to tell her but it feels like a lie

I got what I wanted and it's wasn't enough
I got what I wanted when you showed up
I got what I wanted and it's never enough... Never enough

When you talk it makes me cringe
You want so bad to have meaning
But you're empty and draining
You're so 4th street
I can't take it
I know I shouldn't care
But you're life's intersecting where mine's disconnecting
But you're life's intersecting where mine's disconnecting

I got what I wanted when you showed up
I got what I wanted and it's wasn't enough
I got what I want when you showed up
I got what I wanted and it's never enough... Never enough

That could be bad for you both
