Bondi St. Blues
I spent my time back then thinking of nothing but them,
The dead ends of my thoughts the last friends in my head:
And you heard me you heard me you heard me my friend,
Sent the ship over seas to save me from death.
Through the storms I have weathered through the dark and the rain,
You sent me the ship that I sail on today.
And the boat sails on like you sang in your song,
And my mind feels clearer several years on.
And the ship that was sailing on,
Will they remember my name when I'm gone,
(When they know what I did was so f*cking wrong)
Put the steel to my wrist, lost the breath in my chest,
(Just to forget all the wrongs I had left)
I took the exit, left my friends in the gutter,
(Left my life right behind me, left myself, left it all)
Left myself, left it all, not a falter, not a stutter
Not a note, and now
(There's nothing at all)
Well I know there's been times when I wished I would die,
But I swear yeah I swear oh I swear I'm past that,
And I'll swear if you will that I will not look back,
Yeah I swear if you will that I will not look back.
Take a deep breath now, pass the shallows,
Stay steady and hold on, through the darkness we all know.
And I swear yeah I swear yeah I swear if you will,
To hold onto life, yeah I'll hold on if you will...

I know you're sinking deeper, every breath a straining gasp.
And I know you're wishing 'please death, just make this breath my last'
But there's life out there for living,
My friend we will not give in, take these words and let the light in,
We'll give you everything worth giving.
I heard a story from a friend about you just last night,
About you swinging by your neck there in the softly fading light -
Man you've gotta call you've gotta write you've gotta leave -
Get back to all your friends and all the places you should be.
You're too lonesome man, I get it, I've been there once before.
I'll never know what led me down that path,
What made me lose my grasp (what made me lose my grasp).
But now the years have passed and I know in my heart,
No matter where I am. I won't follow that path.
There are things that I've said there are people I've hurt,
There are moments in time when I've been down in the dirt
And I know that it's hard to let go of our pasts
But in each one of us there is hope for fresh starts.
So if I hurt you, if I let you down just remember we were close, we were down.
I Heart H.C.
I know you feel like you're the only one,
Like you've had enough, like you should just give up,
Like you don't give a fuck,
But let me tell you my friends that when it ends it just ends,
There's no afterlife you don't come back from death; [x2]
So when you leave this earth, when your heart stops you'll see,
There's no choir of angels there's no gods to meet.
You speak my name and shudder, but I'm still here.
I built a bridge here just to burn it, just to light my faded path,
So I could see what's down below me, because how I yearn to see you laugh.
Oh how I yearn to see you laugh.
So selfish were my footsteps and so foolish are they are,
But there's not much I can do here now that I'm living underground.
Speak now my precious whispers, float softly through the breeze,
Please float on by my loved ones and let them know that I'm still here...
This is my open letter,
This is something to remember.
I won't be buried before my time,
I'm not searching for forever,
I've got my eyes opened wide,
I've been searching under rubble from the past,
Just looking for a reason to make your life last.
No need to look skyward for you to find hope,
No need for redemption to be saved from the rope,
Pabst Blue Ribbon On Ice
Remember, remember the times when we were younger,
When we she'd our tears many times close together.
Remember remember the days left behind,
And the words lost between us in the valleys of time.
Remember my friend now remember my lover,
When I told you that I'd never recover.
And remember the cold stormy weather,
And the promise I made I'd love you forever.
I meant it I swear that I meant it forever.
I was waiting for you man
Right down there by the sea
Where we used to meet
To share in our pain and decry misery
I waited, I waited, I waited I swear
But when I got down to the ocean man
You were not fucking there
I just wish that you spoke up and held out your hand
