Paramore - Franklin



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

And when we get home, I know we won't be home at all
This place we live, it is not where we belong
And I miss who we were in the town that we could call our own
Going back to get away after everything has changed

'Cause you remind me of a time when we were so alive
(Everything has changed)
Do you remember that? Do you remember that?
(Everything has changed)
'Could you help me push aside all that I have left behind
(Everything has changed)
Do you remember that? Do you remember that?

So we stand here now and no one knows us at all
I won't get used to this
I won't get used to being gone
And going back won't feel the same if we aren't staying
Going back to get away after everything has changed

Could you remind me of a time when we were so alive
(Everything has changed)
Do you remember that? Do you remember that?
(Everything has changed)
'Could you help me push aside all that I have left behind
(Everything has changed)
Do you remember that? Do you remember that?

Taking up our time
Taking up our time
Taking up our time
It's taking up our time we can't
go back, we can't go back at all
It's taking up our time we can't
go back, we can't go back at all
It's taking up our time we can't
go back, we can't go back at all
It's taking up our time, taking up our time

Could you remind me of a time when we were so alive
Do you remember that? Do you remember that?

Jayme Salviati - Holiday

(Lyrics Updated 2/08/11...Thanks Jayme)
Thanks to BGriffler for Requesting




LYRICS:

I'm going on a Holiday, don't worry 'bout me I'll be ok
I'm gonna scuba dive, watch the sun rise and
Fall asleep under the moonlight

I'm gonna swim with the fishes, dance on the beaches
Smell the sweetness, the waves crashing down...on me..
On my holiday away, from me

Then I'll come right back to you...
Then I'll come right back to you...
Then I'll come right back to you...
Then I'll come right back to you...

I'm going on a Holiday, don't worry 'bout me I'll be ok
Be ok...
I'll be ok...
Be ok...
I'll be ok...

Cause I'm going on a Holiday

Matt Hires - Turn the Page





LYRICS:

My heart has flown to fields of flowers and open roads
While I'm left lying in my bed
The darkness holds little rest for weary bones
Now turn the page, the chapter's ending

The earth is on her knees
As oceans cover me
Sail your ship across my sea
And I'll see you in my sleep

So far from home the lights still shining from your soul
It's burning holes into my head
The flowers grow, the night is moving way too slow
But I don't wanna see her smiling fading

The earth is on her knees
As oceans cover me
Sail your ship across my sea
And I'll see you in my sleep

But I'm not alone, I'm with the lover of my soul
And where else could I go?

Where else could I go?
Where else could I go?
Oh, where else could I go?
Where else could I go?
Oh, Oh, where else could I go?
Where else could I go?

The earth is on her knees
As oceans cover me
Sail your ship across my sea
And I'll see you in my sleep

Oh, oh, the earth is on her knees
As oceans cover me
And won't you sail your ship across my sea?
And I'll see you in my sleep

I'll see you in my sleep
Oh, I'll see you in my sleep

Into It. Over It. - Introduce THIS To Your Parents

From Last.fm
On Thursday, September 27th 2007, Evan Thomas Weiss turned 23. He noticed that his last few years had gone by rather quickly. To combat (or encourage…?) this movement in his life, he wrote and recorded one song every week of his 23rd year—roughly 52 songs.

He spent many years writing, recording and touring in bands. The Progress, Damiera, and Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start are a few (among many others).

LYRICS:

I've been counting ways to tell you that this isn't working out in my head.
"Is there a problem? You can tell me," she said.
But, despite my best intentions, what would I say to you now?
Along with all the "I'm sorry"s that come out your mouth,
You've promised me a good time in your town
but I'm not driving that distance just to turn around.

So maybe you should try harder to begin to try trying less.
I swear I'm not this hard to impress.

You're way too funny to give me much less.
I'll chalk it up to inexperience,
but still you've kept your mouth shut.
The cats got your tongue, in a fit of apprehension.
I wish I had the courage to say this to your face.
You'll forgive me one day but this song will outlive us both anyway, any day.

So maybe you should try harder to begin to try trying less.
I swear I'm not this hard to impress.

So take this song home with you
'cause I'll never see it for myself.
You can introduce it to your parents
or frame it on your shelf.

There are two kinds of people in the world...

- Those who make your life easier — and those who make it harder.
- Those whose presence helps you perform better — and those whose presence makes you do worse.
- Those concerned about doing the work — and those concerned about getting the credit.
- Those who leave you feeling up — and those who leave you feeling down.
- Those who simplify — and those who complicate.
- Those who listen when others are talking — and those who wait when others are talking.
- Those who give — and those who take.
- Those who last — and those who fade.
Which are you?

Finch - Without You Here (R.I.P.)

Finch announced their breakup yesterday. Keep them alive.. R.I.P.



LYRICS:

The storm is bad tonight,
so how could I awake without you here?
Your picture's on the wall.
You haven't called.
But I'll wait for you.

To her own reflection,
she says, "I will hold on"
To her own reflection,
she says, "I will be strong"

The storm is letting up,
but it won't die.
If you weren't wrong, was I?
Your picture still remains,
but I wonder are you still the same?

To her own reflection,
she says, "I will hold on"
To her own reflection,
she says, "I will be strong"

Am I losing you?
Am I losing you?!
I've waited, I've waited til it's over
It's over now...
[repeat three times]

To her own reflection,
she says, "I will hold on"
To her own reflection,
she says, "I will be strong"

I Call Fives - Take The Fall





Check Them Out Here

LYRICS:

I've gotta leave this place*
But I've got nowhere to go
I feel like something's changed
And I can't wait til tomorrow
Takes me away to a better place
Where these things that have been changing me
Will slowly fade away

Well I'm not ready to fall again
And I'm crashing even harder this time
I'll never learn from my mistakes
But if this is what it takes
I'm gone

I never turned around
I just get lost inside your head
I'll won't make a sound
When I leave you tucked inside your bed
I apologize for everything I've said
I never meant to lie
No, I never meant to hurt you

Well I'm not ready to fall again
And I'm crashing even harder this time
I'll never learn from my mistakes
But if this is what it takes
I'm gone

And I can't see things
The way you want me to
Sometimes I just feel better
When I'm further from you
And I can't do things
Just cause you ask me to
We've been through all of this
Over and over and over

Socratic - We Burn Houses

Check them out here

LYRICS:

I saw myself in an alley.
This was me ten years from now.
He said, "Hey kid don't you remember that i never get older?
Hey kid don't you remember that I'll never get older?"

We burn houses bigger than this.
With a three car garage with no cars in it.
Everybody's coming but nobody's leaving.
From outside I can see right into a table for four with the third chair missing.
It's upside down from reflections on silverware.

They all want to be helpful.
I am not one of those people.
I just sit and wait for grass so green that there is no other side.
Birds that sing with English accents a melody out of time.
We're just slipping away.

Death Cab for Cutie - Summer Skin




GUITAR PRO TAB

LYRICS:

Squeaky swings and tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water's warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin

I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air
Then Labor day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin

On the night you left I came over
And we peeled the freckles from our shoulders
Our brand new coats so flushed and pink
And I knew your heart I couldn't win
Cause the season's change was a conduit
And we'd left our love in our summer skin

Title: Take me with you
Submitted: 12/14/2010 14:08:27

LYRICS:

In the darkness I see you
riding above the stars
take me with you
we could enjoy an eteranl bliss
teamed forever with happiness
take me with you

In the light I see you
flying along with a kite
take me with you
we would never have to spend our days apart
all my love spilling into your heart
take me with you

In my dreams I see you
wondering in a whole new scene
take me with you
we could explore places like France and Italy
stopping to take photos of us as a "we"
take me with you

In my reality I see you
cold and buried in the ground
take me with you
why did you have to leave me behind
was my love not enough to stop you suicide
take me with you

Title: All Grown Up
Submitted: 12/14/2010 14:20:17

LYRICS:

I remember the good days
I remember the bad times
I think that I know everything
But still theres lots more lessons to find

Every year I say its gonna change
Nothing will knock me down
But fate always proves me wrong
Oh why can't I be right?

Bridge:
When you fall
you have to get up
When you ge up
you have to walk on

Chorus:
It's a rollercoaster ride
when you go down
you'll always get back up
It's like riding a bike
you don't know it straight away
you have to feel the pain
you think getting older makes you wiser
you think being smarter make you better
But I know for a fact that your wrong
and you won't keep up this attitude for long
cause yor the same person you were at school
your just a naive old fool

How many people can break my heart?
How many people can let me down
How many people can tear me apart?
How many people can make me down?

But how many times have people said "I love you" ?
How many times have people made me smile?
My memories are turning into Deja vu
Maybe life ain't so bad if you walk that extra mile

Title: Little Girl
Submitted: 12/14/2010 14:33:27

LYRICS:

Dedicated to Marina McCready

Little girl, so innocent so young
She'll make lots of mistakes
But its not because she's dumb
Little girl, so confident so free
She is everything
That I would like to be
Little girl, so lovely so naive
She's the only person
That I can trust and believe
Little girl, so cute she's all mine
She's right inside your heart
But don't go blind-

Chorus 1:
Trying to look for the cracks
Where everything went wrong
You can't take anything back
It's time to move on
Theres nothing you can do
Nothing you can say
Your life is still good
Try again another day
Don't regret
Don't howl
Because you should get
That its over over now

Hey girl, look at me now
So insecure, so paranoid
I bet your wondering how
Hey girl, would you ever believe
That it all came from a boy
Who was a cute as could be
Hey girl, I'm quoting a good flim
Even though your horrified
Don't run of for the hills
Hey girl, maybe you can guide me
Take me to my soul and maybe
I'll become whole again-becuase I'm

Chorus 2:
Trying to look for the cracks
Where everything went wrong
I can't take anything back
But I need to know how long
I'll have to suffer to ge
Some peace and find
out when I don't regret
and torturing my mind
I will try not to regret
I won't start to howl
But I'm not sure I'll ever get
That its over now

The Dangerous Summer - Symmetry




(Tab that I Wrote)

LYRICS:

I stayed awake just long enough to see you.
Remember Winnipeg, and feeling simpler back then?
I took a week off from my band and flew out,
It was a Saturday, I saw you waiting by the plane.

I was always in a way just a long shot;
I was never in the clear of that.
I am lucky just to be a potential,
but I will always make a mess of that.

I traded symmetry for everything I loved.
I took my feelings out and I had told you I was done.
I know your mistakes,
does that bother you that I found where they stay?
Can I reach you yet?
I stood up so fast and I let you down.
It was the first time that I heard,
I heard that sound.
It filled my head with the darkest shade of black
and I found you there.
I realized then that I was just a little sad,
and I left you there.

I was always in a way just a long shot;
I was never in the clear of that.
I am lucky just to be a potential,
but I will always make a mess of that.

I was always in a way just a long shot;
I was never in the clear of that.
I am lucky just to be a potential,
but I will always make a mess of that.

I was always in a way just a long shot;
I was never in the clear of that.
I am lucky just to be a potential,
but I will always make a mess of that.

Danger Radio - Your Kind (Speak To Me)




LYRICS:

I saw you standin' there in front of me
To some degree
Thought I could be-e
Someone who shows you possibilities
But the latency
Is killin' me-e

You crush me with your stares
I suddenly became so aware
Ooh.
You're not the type of girl I should be with but I don't care
Ooh.

Caught me in sight
and now i'm fighting
But I still keep on tryin' to get to you
Keep breathin'
I know you're so deceivin'
But I can't help that I'm so
Hooked on you

Speak to me
Wish you could see
You're always on my mind
The things you do
On your pursuits
Trying to keep a distance
I know your kind

Speak to me
Wish you could see
You're always on my mind
The things you do
On your pursuits
Trying to keep a distance
I know your kind

She's gon' find ways to get inside of me
It feels so wrong, but I'm in too de-ep
My nerves are shot from the anxiety
I'm trembling,
But that aids me-e

I'm not the type of man to sit and stare I understand
Ooh.
But I keep gravitating to you it was so unplanned,
Ooh.

Caught me in sight
and now i'm fighting
But I still keep on tryin' to get to you
Keep breathin'
I know you're so deceivin'
But I can't help that I'm so
Hooked on you

Speak to me
Wish you could see
You're always on my mind
The things you do
On your pursuits
Trying to keep a distance
I know your kind

Speak to me
Wish you could see
You're always on my mind
The things you do
On your pursuits
Trying to keep a distance
I know your kind

Keep setting aside
Everything that I was told about you can't get you out my mind
I can't seem to find a way
To leave you behind
And forget or rewind

Speak to me
Speak to me
Speak to me
Speak to me

Speak to me
Wish you could see
You're always on my mind
The things you do
On your pursuits
Trying to keep a distance
I know your kind

Speak to me
Wish you could see
You're always on my mind
The things you do
On your pursuits

Envy On The Coast - Tell Them That She's Not Scared






Listen to the Album Version Here

LYRICS:

I'll hold your tears as a ransom
Within the palm of my hand
And tell you once again,
Don't tell me that you're scared

Wake, wake, wake her
From this sea of white linens and
Extract the drugs from her dreams
And sew her seams with delicateness
'Cause beneath her chest sits the heart that I live for,
You'd kill for,
The angels would die for
And with a subtle wink and a flutter of wings
They whispered,
They whispered

I'll hold your tears as a ransom
Within the palm of my hand
And tell you once again
Don't tell me that you're scared

Alert the sawbones,
Tell them that she's not scared
She's got an army of saints armed with her prayers
Wake the angels
Tell them that she's not scared
She won't be taking the next flight out of here

With a relic in her right hand,
She rushes to the front line,
Stricken by the wounds across her chest
The angels swear she's blessed with this medical test
That unlocks the gates to the place that we live for
We die for,
I know that she's bound for
And with a subtle wink and a mother's instinct
She whispered,
She whispered

I'll hold your tears as a ransom
Within the palm of my hand
And tell you once again,
Don't tell me that you're

Alert the sawbones,
Tell them that she's not scared
She's got an army of saints armed with her prayers
Wake the angels
Tell them that she's not scared
She won't be taking the next flight

Alert the sawbones,
Tell them that she's not scared
She's got an army of saints armed with her prayers
Wake the angels
Tell them that she's not scared
She won't be taking the next flight out of here

The angels dressed for the wake
But she sent them home
She sent them home
With a handful of bullet shells
With a handful of bullet shells

The angels dressed for the wake
But she sent them home
Sent them home
With a handful of bullet shells
With a handful of bullet shells

Alert the sawbones,
Tell them that she's not scared

Alert the sawbones,
Tell them that she's not scared
She's got an army of saints armed with her prayers
Wake the angels
Tell them that she's not scared
She won't be taking the next flight out of here

Dashboard Confessional - Shirts And Gloves




LYRICS:

When I'm back from the road
and you're out on it
And I'm tired of this distance
And I believe it's over... it's over-rated.
And this phone tag game is endless
the novelty is wearing
I'm hoping time will pass
without any assistance
or convincing.

Road rules apply
there's so much action,
you're getting busy.
I'll call your cellular phone
to tell you TV night was
lonely without you
& so am I...
so am I.

It seems our day keeps falling on a leap year.

So many high points on this last leg.
I can't wait to recount them
it seems like nothing's happened
until I've shared them with you.
The note that you had called
says youre half a day away
& you are heading home
just in time for me to leave.

Road rules apply
there's so much action
I'm getting busy.
So make sure that I'm up to date
on TV night,
I hate to miss out.

I think I miss you most
on Wednesdays
& Saturdays.

Jose Gonzalez - Heartbeats






LYRICS:

One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise paid
Four hands and then away

Both under influence
We had a divine sense
To know what to say
Mind is a razor blade

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough
for me, no

One night of magic rush
The start a simple touch
One night to push and scream
And then relief

Ten days of perfect tunes
The colors red and blue
We had a promise made
We were in love

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough
for me, no

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough

And you, you knew the hand of the devil
And you, kept us awake with wolves teeth
Sharing different heartbeats
In one night

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough
for me, no

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough

Matt Nathanson - All We Are




LYRICS:

I tasted, tasted love so sweet
And all of it was lost on me
Bought and sold like property
Sugar on my tongue

I kept falling over
I kept looking backward
I went broke believing
That the simple should be hard

All we are we are
All we are we are
And every day is a start of something beautiful

I wasted, wasted love for you
Traded out for something new
Well, it's hard to change the way you lose
If you think you never won

'Couse all we are we are
All we are we are
And every day is a start of something beautiful

And in the end the words won't matter
'Couse in the end tothing stays the same
And in the end dreams just scatter and fall like rain

'Couse all we are we are
All we are we are
And every day is a start of something beautiful, something real

All we are we are
All we are we are
And every day is a start of something beautiful, beautiful

Bayside - Don't Call Me Peanut



Another video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teZBa73ppsk&amp;amp;feature=related


LYRICS:

Drink up beautiful;
I spiked your cup with angst, and a heart attack.
I've got so much trapped and it's all because of you.
So i figured you might like some back;

And when I see her I'll tell her whats been on my mind,
All these sleepless nights, she'll recite her excuses,
Put my tail between these legs of mine;
Like i do all the time

Can't live my life;
Knowing you'll be in his arms, each time I blink my eyes;
Know what goes on behind my back; every night.
Afraid I'll never leave; afraid I'll never know whats good for me

And when I see her I'll tell her whats been on my mind,
All these sleepless nights, she'll recite her excuses,
Put my tail between these legs of mine;
Like i do all the time

And now you say that; you say you love me.
Well i may have your heart, he has your body
And now you swear that; you're being honest,
But you're not honest, you never could be

And when I see her I'll tell her whats been on my mind,
All these sleepless nights, she'll recite her excuses,
Put my tail between these legs of mine;
Like i do all the time

Valencia – The Closest I Am To Living Life On The Edge




LYRICS:

Let's build a rocket to the moon
Just you and I
We could start a whole new world up there
Leave our past behind
Behind

Sometimes I can’t believe my eyes
I want to stare up
And get lost in the city lights
Because I’ve had enough and this is the end
And now I understand
That a heart breaks it does not bend

Someone please help me out
I never meant to take this so far
Now I’ve fallen way too hard
Take a long step back to
To The days when I was younger
Decisions never mattered all this much

It’s an emptied handed promise
From my heart to my conscious
That says one day I will make this count
(The best that I know how)

The closest that I am to living life on the edge
Is packing all my bags, and heading off with my best friends

Someone please help me out
I never meant to take this so far
Now I’ve fallen way too hard
Take a long step back
To The days when I was younger
Decisions never mattered all this much

So let it all go
You have no worries now
(I’ve made my decision)
With the sun in your face you’re never beneath the clouds
(I’m lifting)
And all the along the way I found you wishing on those clouds to move away
Grab my hand
Let's kiss the sun goodbye

I know the way to go it’s never as easy as it may seem
The takeoffs the landings, our rockets transcending
Ordinary, what’s ordinary?
(To the moon)

The takeoffs the landings, our rockets transcending
Ordinary, what’s ordinary?
(To the moon)

Balance and Composure - Show Your Face





LYRICS:

Well I've been running away from you for the past couple years,
spent my days down by the river,
and hoped to see your face.
And it's been hard to speak up when no one is listening to me,
compared to you I am so small, so small.

Your words cannot tell me that my neighbor is burning.
For that I can't believe. So tell me, am I burning too?

The sky's your window, but where am I hiding?
I've been waiting.

It's always on my troubled mind. [x4]

How long will it take for you to fall to the ground?
'Cause I've been waiting here for years,
and my feet are cold, and my back is sore.
How long will it take for you to to realize that you are nothing?
'Cause I've been watching closely, and you just wouldn't show your face.

I was never about this, never about this love.[x4]

It goes on until I'm numb.[x2]

The sky's your window, but where am I hiding?
I've been waiting.

Colbie Caillat - The Little Things






LYRICS:

The little things, you do to me are
taking me over, i wanna show ya
everything inside of me
like a nervous heart that, is crazy beating
my feet are stuck here, against the pavement
i wanna break free, i wanna make it
closer to your eyes, get your attention
before you pass me by

So back up back up take another chance
Don’t you mess up mess up I don’t wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this aint just a thing that you
Give up give up don’t you say that I’d be
Better off better off, sleepin by myself and wonderin
If im better off better off, with out you boy

So don't just leave me hanging on

And every time, you notice me by
holdin me closely, and sayin sweet things
i don't believe, that it could be
you speekin your mind and, sayin the real thing
my feet have broke free, and i am leavin
i'm not gonna stand here, feelin lonely but
i wont forget you, and i won't think this
was just a waste of time

So back up back up take another chance
Don’t you mess up mess up I don’t wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this aint just a thing that you
Give up give up don’t you say that I’d be
Better off better off, sleepin by myself and wonderin
If im better off better off, with out you boy

But don't just leave me hangin on............

Daphne Loves Derby - Pollen and Salt




LYRICS:

You've left me with such a silent world,
Where evenings are calm, but I'm restless
And my breath has become as thin as the wind.

Not even the mighty sky could fill the space you left behind
Not even when it rains.
No, nothing takes your place
Your emptiness too great to fill.

I have been holding my breath,
For too many nights in a row,
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams,
With reds and blues and greens.
Yea you're painting daffodils by the sea,
Without me.

Today in a breeze I sensed your perfume
But you were nowhere near.
And in reverie,
I felt you holding me.
And even in my dreams I shake from the fear
That you've been swept away.
By the rhythm of the waves I whisper in your ears.

I have been holding my breath,
For too many nights in a row,
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams,
With reds and blues and greens.
Yea you're painting daffodils by the sea,
Without me.

I would give away
My sweetest memories,
If I could just be with you again.
Be with you again.

I have been holding my breath,
For too many nights in a row,
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams,
With reds and blues and greens.
Yea you're painting daffodils growing by the sea,
Without me.

Last night I dreamt you were with me,
Finally I could breathe.

Socratic - Spread the Rumors







LYRICS:

Spread the rumors Julia.
He's going out of his mind.
Grandmas going blind.
It hurts them both to see.
Tears are cures for sore eyes that stare at clouds all their lives.
I traded rainchecks to see a sunny day.
Leave me and mother alone.
Our half family in our two family home.
Not much is all we've known.
A little less is all we own.
We are just little thread.
Space, the room.
Earth, the bed.
A woman's sewing us for the infant universe.
She wants no more thoughts and no more drugs.
Money or religion.
Shes tired of friends and their coincidences.
This happens when the kinds doesn't get enough sleep.
He knows what wrong but can't help what is happening.

A Loss For Words – Hot Hand In A Dice Game



LYRICS:

Tonight I'll leave all my fears behind, just one night
before they consume me
this distance is killing me but willingly I would be here for you

As I breathe in you burn my lungs
as you fell so fast from these arms that once held so tight to you
but now the tables have turned
you're the cause of this cancer

These eyes are polished
Every night a clear coat of gloss to keep them bright
anything to keep this all behind
I'm standing at the edge of everything
That I can't escape and its finally breaking me down

As I breathe in you burn my lungs
as you fell so fast from these arms that once held so tight to you
but now the tables have turned
you're the cause of this cancer

We get what we give, it all comes back around
but now is not the time but now is not the time

As I breathe in you burn my lungs
as you fell so fast from these arms that once held so tight to you
but now the tables have turned
you're the cause of this cancer

The Narrative - Eyes Closed





LYRICS:

the clouds hold
a storm over this road...
you're dreaming...
or at least you've got your eyes closed
and this dormant love you've built inside your stubborn ways,
well its begging now, for air...
...of the silent breath of change...
as these waves crash against the highway cliffs...
i'm so scared they'll flood me where i sit...
well the roads, they change to waterways...
they never carry home...
you pull back and you angle towards the window...
now the rain is crashing down----
and oh my god, you're beautiful...
and i'm so unsighted, still i pray you'll hold back your escape....
yeah we still got time
and in my mind these bends could be steered straight...
as these waves crash against the highway cliffs,
i'm so scared they'll flood me where i sit...
well the roads, they change to waterways...
they never carry home
well, i'm sorry for the things i had to say...
and i'm sorry i pushed your hand away
from the radio...
i pushed your hand away
from the radio...
i should have just let it go...

Parachute - Words Meet Heartbeats




LYRICS:

Well I'd go house to house and knock on every door
I'd take down all the walls and tear up every floor
Just to figure out, oh what we're fighting for
And all I can do is sit and let the air speak for you

Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, come on
You know it's not even fair and a first-round knockdown
Baby, the floor, you know I'm already there
And the sun sets high and that moon is low
Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, you'll know

Well there's silence now, there's nothing more to gain
And it isn't right if I can't run away
Because it kills the mood when there's nothing left to say
And all I can do is sit and let the air speak for you

Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, come on
You know it's not even fair and a first-round knockdown
Baby, the floor, you know I'm already there

And the sun sets high and that moon is low
Cause when words meet heartbeats

And I'm not too tired,
I'm not too tired to know what you're doing
And I'm not too tired, I'm not too tired to see
And I'm not too tired,
I'm not too tired to know what you're doing with me

Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, come on
You know it's not even fair and a first-round knockdown
Baby, the floor, you know I'm already there
And the sun sets high and that moon is low
Cause when words meet heartbeats, and words meet heartbeats,
When words meet heartbeats, baby, you'll know

Counting Crows - Long December




LYRICS:

A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember the last thing that you said as you were leaving
Oh the days go by so fast

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven
I wish you would
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California
I think you should
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after 2 a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

And it's one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean
I guess I should
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

Counting Crows - Raining in Baltimore




LYRICS:

This circus is falling down on its knees
The big top is crumbling down
It's raining in Baltimore fifty miles east
Where you should be, no one's around
I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I need a big love
I need a phone call
These train conversations are passing me by
And I don't have nothing to say
You get what you pay for
But I just had no intention of living this way
I need a phone call
I need a plane ride
I need a sunburn
I need a raincoat
And I get no answers
And I don't get no change
It's raining in Baltimore, baby
But everything else is the same
There's things I remember and things I forget
I miss you I guess that I should
Three thousand five hundred miles away
But what would you change if you could?
I need a phone call Maybe I should buy a new car
I can always hear a freight train Baby, if I listen real hard
And I wish, I wish it was a small world
Because I'm lonely for the big towns
I'd like to hear a little guitar
I guess it's time to put the top down
I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I really need a raincoat
I really really need a rain coat
I really really really need a rain coat
I really need a raincoat

Freelance Whales - Broken Horse




LYRICS:

October's got those orange eyes
But somehow I still lost sight
When you lifted the lid off of my pumpkin head
And kissed me goodnight

She could be a thorn in my side
We never quite broke that horse
She slept in the cul-de-sac rye
Seven miles from my front porch

Bundle up and come with me now
Down the road where to the burned down barn
We could make a blanket of coats
And breathe our souls into the neighbor's front lawn

But, oh god, that look in your eye
Trouble that does not search words
It sprung from the biblical vine and
Awaiting to return to the dirt

The stitches in your winter clothes
Your cello bows
We stole your hair to make them
We're sorry for the iron shoes
We nailed to you
And stuck you in the rain
And then you sprinted away
Sprinted away to where I don't know
God's moving in your bloodstream
Where the cross beats aren't so slow

You swept all the red from my cheeks
I didn't hear you come back inside
I light up the gas in the den
And stand there in the thin winter light
But, oh god, that curve in your spine
A question mark, a doctor's sigh
Was framed by the windowsill
And you saw something I did not in that night
You saw something I did not in that night

The stitches in your winter clothes
Your cello bows
We stole your hair to make them
We're sorry for the iron shoes
We nailed to you
And stuck you in the rain
And then you sprinted away
Sprinted away to where I don't know
God's moving in your bloodstream
Where the cross beats aren't so slow

God's moving in your bloodstream
Where the cross beats aren't so slow... (x 5)

Smith Point - Escape



LYRICS:

Taking on the day
Waiting to escape
The thoughts
That keep me here today
Cutting back the time
Waiting for your light
To show
And lead me through the day

And I wonder
Will you be there too?
With all the time
I thought of you
Cause I need you more
I need you more than that

Too late, my friend
To take it all today
And to relate on my time
You could say that
I would hope to turn back to your way
Believing where I'd run
Today

Taking back the day
Waiting to escape
The ones
Who take it all away
Cutting back through time
Waiting for your line
To call
And take me far away

Taking on the day
Waiting to escape
And leave it all today
Turning back the time
Waiting for the sign
To fall
And take me on my way

mewithoutYou - In A Sweater Poorly Knit




LYRICS:

In a sweater poorly knit, and an unsuspecting smile
Little Moses drifts downstream in the Nile
A fumbling reply -- an awkward, rigid laugh
I'm carried helpless by my floating basket raft

Your flavor in my mind swings back and forth between sweeter than any wine, and bitter as mustard greens
Light and dark as honeydew and pumpernickle bread

The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

As you plow some other field and try and forget my name, see what harvest yields, and, supposing I'd do the same
I planted rows of peas, but by the first week of july -- they should have come up to my knees but they were maybe ankle high

Take the fingers from your flute to weave your colored yarns, and boil down your fruit to preserves in mason jars

But now books are overdue and the goats are underfed... the trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

You're a door-without-a-key, a field-without-a-fence
You made a holy fool of me, and I've thanked you ever since
If she comes circling back, we'll end where we'd begun
Like two pennies on the train track the train crushed into one

But if I'm a crown without a king, if I'm a broken, open seed
If I come without a thing, I come with all I need
No boat out in the blue, no place to rest your head
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

I
do
not
exist
only
YOU
exist

Fall Out Boy - XO




LYRICS:

I comb the crowd and pick you out
My mouth moves too fast for you to figure it out
It starts eyes closed to fingers crossed
"To I swear, I say"
"To I swear, I say"

To hands between legs, to "whatever it takes"
To drinks at the club to the bar
To the keys to your car
To hotel stairs to the emergency exit door

To the love, I left my conscience pressed
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
"What did it ever do for me" I say (I say, I say, I say)
It never calls me when I'm down
Love never wanted me
But I took it anyway
Put your ear to the speaker
And choose love or sympathy
But never both
Love never wanted me

"I hoped you choked
And crashed your car"
Hey "tear catcher", that's all that you are
And ever were
From the start
I swear, I say
I swear, I say

To hands between legs, to "whatever it takes"
To drinks at the club to the bar
To the keys to your car
To hotel stairs to the emergency exit door

To the love, I left my conscience pressed
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
"What did it ever do for me" I say
It never calls me when I'm down
Love never wanted me
But I took it anyway
Put your ear to the speaker
And choose love or sympathy
But never both, no

To the love I left my conscience pressed
Through the keyhole I watched you dress
Kiss and tell
(Loose lips sink ships)

To the love I left my conscience pressed
Through the keyholes I watched you dress
Kiss and tell
(Loose lips sink ships)
[x2]

To the love I left my conscience pressed [x3]
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
"What did it ever do for me" I say

Taking Back Sunday - Your Own Disaster






LYRICS:

just think of this and me
as just a few of the many things
to lie around,
to clutter up your shelves
and I wish you weren't worth the wait
cause there are some things
that I'd like to say to you

And I don't think that you know
what you've been missing
cause I don't think that you know
what you've been missing

and I dare you to forget
the marks you left across my neck
from those nights when we were both found at our best
now I could make this obvious and you,
you could deny me
all in one breath
you could shrug me off your shoulders

And I don't think that you know
what you've been missing
cause I don't think that you know
what you've been missing
And I don't think that you know
said I don't think that you know
said I don't think that you know
what you've been missing

hey lush, have fun
it's the weekend
hey lush, have fun
hey lush, have fun
it's the weekend
hey lush, have fun
(no I don't think that you know
what you've been missing)
hey lush, have fun
it's the weekend
(no I don't think that you know
what you've been missing)
hey lush, have fun
(no I don't think that you know
what you've been missing)
hey lush, have fun
it's the weekend
(no I don't think that you know
what you've been missing)
hey lush, have fun
[forget me, it's that simple]
(no I don't think that you know
what you've been missing)
hey lush, have fun
[forget me, it's that simple]
it's the weekend
(no I don't think that you know

[forget me it's that simple]
(no I don't think that you know

Death Cab for Cutie - What Sarah Said






LYRICS:

And it came to me then that every plan is a tiny prayer to father time
As I stared at my shoes in the ICU that reeked of piss and 409
And I rationed my breaths as I said to myself that I'd already taken too much today
As each descending peak on the LCD took you a little farther away from me
Away from me

Amongst the vending machines and year-old magazines in a place where we only say goodbye
It stung like a violent wind that our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds
But I knew that you were a truth I would rather lose than to have never lain beside at all
And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground as the TV entertained itself

'Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room
Just nervous pacers bracing for bad news
And then the nurse comes round and everyone will lift their heads
But I'm thinking of what Sarah said that "Love is watching someone die"

So who's going to watch you die?..

Bethany Joy Lenz - Leaving Town Alive






LYRICS:

Spending all your money
Ain’t it funny how the time goes by?
First you start believing
Then you’re leaving for no reason
And you’re wondering why
So till the morning breaks
Go and make your mistakes
Don’t be surprised if your head hurts
Life is for the living, the forgiven and for leaving town alive

Whisper in the ways
Watching days and moving on
You wake up every Monday then suddenly it’s Sunday
And the week is gone
So till the morning breaks
Go and make your mistakes
Don’t be surprised at the sunrise
Life is for the living, the forgiven and for leaving town alive

Oh, do you wonder where it starts
Where it ends
What you find around the bend
Oh, do you wonder where she’s from
Where she goes
No one knows
Now and then you wonder
Why you’re spending all your money
Ain’t it funny how she walks on by?
She had you all believing
Now she’s leaving for no reason
And you’re wondering why

So till the morning breaks
Go and make your mistakes
Don’t be surprised if your heart hurts
Life is for the living, the forgiven and for leaving town alive

Oh, do you wonder where it starts
Where it ends
What you find around the bend
And oh, do you wonder where she’s from
Where she goes
No one knows
Now and then

Oh, do you wonder where it starts
Where it ends
What you find around the bend
And do you wonder where she’s from
Where she goes
No one knows
Now and then you wonder

Why life is for the living, the forgiven and the leaving town alive
Life is for the living, the forgiven and the leaving town alive

Go Radio - Forever My Father




LYRICS:

You don't have to be so scared
You don't have to go tonight
I've just need to hold on tight
For one hell of a ride
And we lost it all just now
To the nights that left you out
So we'll let this go somehow
But you're gonna be proud (so proud)

And I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone to lift me up
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one

How can I fit all these words
Into such a simple verse
It's the last time that we'll speak
So listen to me please

I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone
To lift me up
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
I'll be saving tears in jars for this one

I just needed you to lift me up
Oh I just needed
Lift me up

And I just needed you to pick me up
Like you did when we were younger
When the lightning and the thunder
Had me clinging to your heart
For someone
To lift me up
When I'm down and I'm forgotten
You'll forever be my father
And I'll be saving tears in jars for this one
Oh

Did you know that you're my heart
And it hurts to be apart
And this cut it hurts so deep
So sing me to sleep

Elliott Smith - Angeles




LYRICS:

Someone's always coming around here trailing some new kill
Says I seen your picture on a hundred dollar bill
And what's a game of chance to you, to him is one
Of real skill
So glad to meet you
Angeles
Picking up the ticket shows there's money to be made
Go on and lose the gamble that's the history of the trade
Did you add up all the cards left to play to zero
And sign up with evil
Angeles
Don't start me trying now u-huh u-huh u-huh
Cos I'm all over it
Angeles
I could make you satisfied in everything you do
All your 'secret wishes' could right now be coming true
And be forever with my poison arms around you
No one's gonna fool around with us
No one's gonna fool around with us
So glad to meet you
Angeles

Saves the Day - Freakish




LYRICS:

As I'm talking my words slip to the floor
and they crawl through your legs and slide under the back door
rendering me freakish and dazed.
Well here I am. I don't know how to say this.
The only thing I know is awkward silence.
Your eyelids close when you're around me to shut me out.
So I'll go walking in the streets until my heels bleed
and I'll sing out my song in case the birds wish to sing along.
And I'll dig a tunnel to the center of the universe.
Well here I am. I don't know how to say this.
The only thing I know is awkward silence.
Your eyelids close when you're around me to shut me out.
I'll make my way across the frozen sea, beyond the blank horizon,
Where i can forget "you and me" and get a decent night's sleep.
Well here I am. I don't know how to say this.
The only thing I know is awkward silence.
Your eyelids close when you're around me to shut me out.
Don't shut me out.

Ron Pope - I Believe



LYRICS:

The sun comes out from a sea of clouds
I shed my disguise
We laugh out loud
I am sure that someday soon we'll all be just fine

I hear a choir of angels on a dead end street
The faces of children make me believe that someday
Some day soon the dark will subside

We're calling out answers we don't know
Calling on friends we thought we'd lost
We all have to see what we've become
Waiting on chances so far gone
Hoping our answers light the dark
Praying someday soon we'll understand
As we search for the promised land

I see a holy host of sweet confusion
And we all bleed but some men choose to stand up
Stand up straight when there's something to lose

It's not armies at war
A search for the truth
The questions we ask leave us more confused
There's nowhere left to rest
So what can we do

We're calling out answers we don't know
Calling on friends we thought we'd lost
We all have to see what we've become
Waiting on chances so far gone
Hoping our answers light the dark
Praying someday soon we'll understand
As we search for the promised land

I swear I believe
I said, "I swear I believe"
I said, "I swear I believe"
I said, "I swear I believe"

We're calling out answers we don't know
Calling on friends we thought we'd lost
We all have to see what we've become
Waiting on chances so far gone
Hoping our answers light the dark
Praying someday soon we'll understand
As we search for the promised land

I swear I believe
I said, "I swear I believe"
I said, "I swear I believe"
I said, "I swear I believe"

Flyleaf - Fully Alive




LYRICS:

Telling Layla's story spoken
about how all her bones are broken
Hammers fall on all the pieces
Two months in the cover creases

Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
and she knows how to believe
in futures

All my complaints shrink to nothing,
I'm ashamed of all my somethings
She's glad for one day of comfort
Only because she has suffered...


Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
and she knows how to believe
in futures (Repeat)

[Instrumental 12 measures, 4 counts each]

Fully alive
More than most
Ready to smile and love life
Fully alive
and she knows how to believe
in futures

June - I'd Lose Myself



LYRICS:

Now a look brings a tear to my eye
I can feel, can remember the time
We got locked up, forgot about breaking down
We remained to sew it together
I talk outside,
the drinks are held throughout our minds
At twenty-two thinking,
realize its all worthwhile

Would you run away?
Would you come with me?
Maybe...
To feel alive again?

Wait, wait, wait
The cold hits us in the face
I say lets disappear till the morning
Lets take it all in,
Forget when the night began

Your hair is wet,
Glistening in the moonlight
We're rising, is it ready, you're sure?
I'm the one below with life alone

I don't know why but I wish
That maybe I can lose myself
I don't know why I lost the drive
I let it drift apart
Gotta get back to place
Not thinking what I say from the start

Would you run away?
Would you come with me?
Maybe...
To feel alive again?
So what do you say?
Would you follow me baby?
Let's feel alive again

I'm overcome with the sayings
My head's lifting and your's agrees
Well this is right,
You know its right
Let's make this work tonight

I don't know why but I wish
That maybe I could lose myself
I don't know why I lost the drive
I let it drift apart
Gotta get back to place
Not thinking what I say from the start

Would you run away?
Would you come with me?
Maybe...
To feel alive again?
So what do you say?
Would you follow me baby?
Let's feel alive again.

Dashboard Confessional - Where There's Gold




LYRICS:

Step on the stage
the lights, the praise,
the curtain calls and the big parade
You know that life all too well

Promise the pain, the valor, the rage
Hold up your hands for the bow and the wave
You know his touch a little too well

You throw yourself into their arms
Mistresses have all the fun
But no one's ever there to take you home

Box up your gloves and your down coats
Bound for the sun and the west coast
Where upper crust tragedies abound

A tip for the girl at the coat check
The guy at the door and the bar back
They know your face oh so well

But movies never made you famous
All your dreams got lost or traded
And all you ever cared about got lost
You were surely still an actress older men would find attractive
And all you ever dreamed of was the cost

Where there's gold there's a gold digger [x6]

You throw yourself into their arms
Mistresses have all the fun
But no one's ever there to take you home

The Narrative - Fade






LYRICS:

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

If we don't leave now, we will break
We will falter, we will fade
If we don't leave now, we will harm,
We'll regret what we've done to ourselves

I probably shouldn't wish,
But your breath on my skin
It's like the cold that's traveling down from the vents above our heads

And drinking is no excuse,
It's an easy one to use
When lack of self control has left you making poor decisions for yourself

Everything used to make sense,
We're testing it in our own strength, oh no

If we don't leave now, we will break,
we will falter, we will fade.
If we don't leave now, we will harm,
We'll regret what we've done

oh, ah, oh, what have I done, what have I done
oh, ah, oh I've gone and hurt the one I love

If we don't leave now, we will break,
We will falter, we will fade.
If we don't leave now, we will harm,
We'll regret what we've done

If we don't leave now, we will break,
We will falter, we will fade.
If we don't leave now, we will harm,
We'll regret what we've done to ourselves

The Follow Through - So High






LYRICS:

Lets turn the lights down low, oh
Turn the lights down, I got a movie
We can watch until you fall asleep on my chest
So tell me right now, oh
So tell me right now, is there any place
You'd rather be other than here, lets forget the rest
And I swear I swear when I first saw you
And talked to you, you'd give me purpose
With every single word you'd say
You took my breath away

I am so high I'm never coming down
Because you're mine, and you've decided to stay around
And as time is taken away, you stay the same, you stay the same
You stay here with me

And our futures are splitting us apart as we speak
We'll get to that when it comes around
None of that really matters now
Because you're here with me
So tell me you love me, because it makes me feel alive
For the first time
I love you too

Tell me how long we have up here
Away from everything we fear
Cause I don't wanna come back down tonight
I swear I will fight until we're the last to stand
Until it's you left holding my hand
And oh our love will burn so bright

Balance Problems - Morning Sun



LYRICS:

Morning sun
Has entered through
The windows of your bedroom
And all the light
That warms your skin
Is ignored while you sleep in
And you sleep well

So I lay next to you
Thinking of a bad excuse
To wake you from recovery
Last night was a mystery
That you'll repeat

And I can't help but think
That this person next to me
Is not the same as when we both had gone to sleep
The drinks that filled your blood
Absorbed with pleasure as they flooded
Your remaining consciousness with memories

You seek to learn the truth
Or at least just something new
From everyone that's standing in the room

You cut your hair and learned a language
Got some culture, made some changes
I was left to try and keep up with

This change of scenery
Surprised you with hope and strength
To purposely forget your problems as you need
Ask yourself why am I alone
And you'll find out
That the faults your own
I was waiting here so patient all along

X3
(You're) All dressed up without a place to go
But that's ok because I know
That you'll find a way to be
Anywhere (but home)

Ask yourself why am I alone
And you'll find out
That the faults your own

You're so cold
Now that you've left home
It reminds me of
Someone we both know
A person that you swore you'd not become

My American Heart - Moving On




LYRICS:

What can I say?
The cold of the middle west
Has taken advantage of my days
And my mistakes are coming back
to haunt me for good

I say I don't mind cause
Every day's another phase
A million miles could mean so much more
Than I could ever say

Why don't you stay right there where
I can see you
Moving on, moving on
Is what I know I do best
But it's so hard to do, hard to do
When you're out in the mid-west

Oh, I wish my heart was fine-tuned
And ready to go but
It's too soon to let that happen
It feels like my head is falling,
Falling off my neck
Because it's been spinning, days upon days
I just wish it went away
A million miles could mean so much more
Than I could ever say

Why don't you stay right there where
I can see you
Moving on, moving on
Is what I know I do best
But it's so hard to do, hard to do
When you're out in the mid-west

Why don't you just tell me
That I'm ready to leave you
but it's not what you want to do
It's not what you want to do

And my heart is a liar
Are there takers or givers?
To spare something less than a heartache
To spare something more than a mistake

Why don't you stay right there where
I can see you
Moving on, moving on
Is what I know I do best
But it's so hard to do, hard to do
When you're out in the mid-west

Why don't you just tell me
That I'm ready to leave you
but it's not what you want to do
It's not what you want to do

Dave Melillo – Knights Of The Island Counter




LYRICS:

So we sit at this table with our hands in our laps
And we have a few drinks and we share a few laughs
But now those days have past and they’re not coming back
It’s a shame cause that’s all that I had

And we’ll sing out loud for hours
Until the morning that we know we can’t avoid
These nights are notable and priceless
I swear that every word I say, I mean until my dying day
It’s a shame when I wake I can’t recall a thing

So keep things quiet until the rest of the street falls asleep
Then we’ll break out and show everyone just what were made of
So young, lets abuse our health and have a little fun
I’ll drink to that, let’s drink to that

I’ve got some problems but we’ve got ten dollars
That’s enough to get us wasted before the night is over
These past five days I’ve been completely sober
But tonight I’m getting ripped wide open

Ronnie Day - Outside



Listen to Album Version Here


LYRICS:

Tell a lie... that's enough.
Give me a story you've made up
and I'll forgive you.

I don't care what you said I said.
It's all in your head...
I'll never get you.

And you're talking these things through
like you know what you've been through,
but there's not a lot of reason
in the things that we believe in,
so I'll believe in you.

I am on the outside of truth
and I'm looking in on you,
but you're staining this town with fighting.
You're staining this town with fighting.
And I'm honest as a photo booth.
I'm just playing off of you,
but you're leaving me fast as lightning.
You're leaving me just to spite me.

Babe, it must be hard living in a castle.
Counting Daddy's monies must be a hastle--
Proudly you can't abide.
I probably should live a lie,
but I've been taught that there's something more
to living life than knowing scores.
I'm proud to say I'm honest.
Proud to say I'm right.

I am on the outside of truth
and I'm looking in on you,
but you're staining this town with fighting.
You're staining this town with fighting.
And I'm honest as a photo booth.
I'm just playing off of you,
but you're leaving me fast as lightning.
You're leaving me just to spite me.

Time out- I don't need this drama,
but I will take you back anyday.
I will take you back anyday.

I'm out, all out of things to argue,
but I will take you on any day.
I will take you on.

I am on the outside of truth
and I'm looking in on you,
but you're staining this town with fighting.
You're staining this town with fighting.
And I'm honest as a photo booth.
I'm just playing off of you,
but you're leaving me fast as lightning.
You're leaving me just to spite me.

The Dangerous Summer - The Permanent Rain






LYRICS:

So why the sudden change
and what’s this all about?
I know they speak your name,
but where’s the sound right now?
I can’t stop praying you’ll hear me play.
I know that I’ll be with you there someday.

So where the hell’s my hope,
and why can’t I just try?
You know I’ve lost a lot,
but I won’t let this die.
I know I’ve got a friend up in the atmosphere,
and another reason not to fear the sky;
no, not tonight.

Can I pull out all the stops,
and get out of this town?
I want to make you proud,
but I really don’t know how.
I know it’s not helping to hear me say,
“I wish it was me in the car that day.”
Though something made me stop and think of what you said.
You know it meant a lot,
but I was just a kid,
one with all these dreams of growing up and playing music on the road.
I’ve been screaming all these years and thinking of you both.

So where’s my hope,
and why can’t I just try?
You know I’ve lost a lot,
but I won’t let this die.
I know I’ve got a friend up in the atmosphere,
and another reason not to fear the sky;
no, not tonight.

I wrote this note,
because I never even told you.
You know I’ve got some things to sing about,
like we were young and holding true
to all these songs that always made us pull through,
and now I’ve got some words that I’ll write down.
I’m sending this shit out.

So where’s my hope,
and why can’t I just try?
You know I’ve lost a lot,
but I won’t let this die.
I know I’ve got a friend up in the atmosphere,
and another reason not to fear the sky;
no, not tonight.

So where’s my hope,
and why can’t I just try?
You know I’ve lost a lot,
but I won’t let this die.
I know I’ve got a friend up in the atmosphere,
and another reason not to fear the sky;
no, not tonight.

So where the hell’s my hope,
and why can’t I just try?
You know I’ve lost a lot,
but I won’t let this die.
I know I’ve got a friend up in the atmosphere,
and another reason not to fear the sky;
no, not tonight. no, not tonight

Josh Canova - The Wish




LYRICS:

Aah, Aah, Aah, Aah

Aah, Aah, Aah, Aah

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Well I wish that I could be someone else
Sometimes I understand that I'm not supposed to feel like this
I should be happy inside
I'm trying
Honest I am
Look how busy I am but I might not learn how to fix it or even change it

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Well I might try opening up
Sometimes I can be angry inside
I'm fine
I'll do it myself like I've done it before and I won't need anyone's help
I mean anyone's help but I might not learn how to fix it or even change it

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Aah, Aah, Aah, Aah

Aah, Aah, Aah, Aah

But I might not learn how to fix it or even change it

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

But I might not learn how to fix it

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
