You look so dumb with your cherry red lipstick on
And I can feel you push but are you sure that this is what you want?
Is that your "can't you see I'm over you" smile?
But baby I will bury you if this is gonna be a while
And all year long, I'm waiting for you to move on
You drove my patience through the floor
With your so dramatic, selfish tactics
You're right here knocking down my door
Don't Want To Fall
This is a decision that I've know for a while made,
I remind my self as I'm walking up to your gate.
Through the wire and diamonds I can see your shape,
Your fumbling around with your keys.
You say we can sit and stay but I'm trouble keeping up with you pleasantries
Don't you find them unsettling, can we go walking?
It's probably a good idea; yeah It's probably a good idea.
'Cause I don't want to fall in love with you again
So tell me, if you're ready
Then why are your palms sweaty?
Grab tight, your knuckles white
Wind up and swing with all your might
All that will be hanging, by days spent in the dark.
Have you had enough, have you had enough?
You build yourself a house, a house that's not a home.
If every shadow is your own, is your own.
Say when and I'll come,
Hang my coat at your door.
You can touch me all you want,
With one eye on the clock.
I hold you here in my mind,
Where I am coming undone
With fleeting emotions a landslide is born
And the pieces will tumble through cracks in your floor
We probably shouldn't talk,
Cuz talking leads to thinking and
Eyes wide open blank in the dark.
We probably shouldn't think,
Cuz thinking leads to questioning and
Circles you right back to the start
But everything used to make sense,
We're testing it in our own strength, oh no
Hard To Keep Your Cool
Just wait your turn, we all wait in line.
And I pray that this will improve with time.
Now I'm begging, please pick up the phone.
It's hard to keep your cool when you're alone.
These rotten years are sinking in,
My weathered bones and aging skin.
Each love I had seams worthy now,
It's hard to be the last to find it out.
I've Been Thinking
Don't be alarmed at that the things that
I've said, they're only the truth love.
I know that your anxious to lay this to bed,
Your always the scared one.
The air has been rushing hard up against the walls
And the windows.
I'll welcome the cool breeze to let itself in
And con you to keep close.
It's not the same when your eyes are sinking,
Silence & Sirens
The silence and the sirens,
They're all together frightening.
The sounds of someone dying,
And i am only missing you again.
So here's a cheers to treason,
And giving me a reason
For drinking well this season.
When you will learn to leave this lonely bed,
For every word he said.
Starving For Attention
These girls are cut out from magazines,
Wearing pride on fashionable sleeves.
Corner boys with swerving glances,
Settle into landmark trances.
Those poor bastards never stand a chance.
And I know you would like to leave me shaking,
From all the things that you're insinuating.
Don't you say now look at what you made me,
'Cause I don't give a damn about you now.
Trains on train tracks are made to come back from every place that they've
7:30, a Sunday off-peak
I knew she'd leave me but not like this
You know you're the reason that I felt alive out here for so long I've been
Waiting for my chance to disappear
The wooden sleepers the girders lying still are cold reminders of what you
Turncoat parents and the children that never arrived.
Pawnshop rings and the road swallowed up by the sky.
And though the static on the radio was signaling that this was the end,
They still sang on just like lovers till the day they decided to be just friends,
And never speak again, to keep from caving in.
So baby this is freedom and you finally are out on your own,
And you left in such a hurry but you'll never get away from this home.
'Cause the kids they aren't happy, and I don't know how you thought they could be.
What with all those misconceptions, it's a miracle that they were ever conceived,
Are you in danger, you swore by a ship wreck
And now you are stranded sinking like a ghost
So sit by your door, and wait for me to storm in
But I swear, I swear I'm never coming home
And the winter's coming close
And my body is growing cold
And I'm trembling in fright, oh my
Cause I am a sinner with a crooked smile
And you took to the rhythm of a no good liar
You Will Be Mine
Green eyes staring as the room spins baby from behind your desk
Until you know you look so good with your pale skin in your bright blue dress
Well I talked and I learned and my tongue couldn't turn its tricks on you
So I tripped and perspired and fled from your island to plan my next move
And all this time I'm waiting for a taste of what you hide
But I'll know better when I am in too deep
You will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine
