Anberlin - Haight Street

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/a/anberlin/haight_street_ver3_tab.htm



LYRICS:

Lets you and me make our way just beyond haight st
Lets leave this life behind forgetting all they say
The time we have this time we’re borrowed
Stay out all night
Forget tomorrow

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

The review mirror shows the towns we’re abandoning
Lets leave this life behind forgetting all they say
The time we have this time we’re borrowed
Stay out all night
Forget tomorrow

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

[We’ll care] if there’s trouble tonight
[We’ll care] cause the kids are alright
Tonight we’ll take this town
Cause we’re old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

Lets you and me
Make a night of it
Old enough to know
But too young to care

[We’ll care] if there’s trouble tonight
[We’ll care] cause the kids are alright
Tonight we’ll take this town
Cause we’re old enough to know
But too young to care

Dashboard Confessional - Best Deceptions

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/d/dashboard_confessional/best_deceptions_tab.htm



I heard about your trip.
I heard about your souvenirs.
I heard about the cool breeze, in the cool nights,
And the cool guys that you spent them with.
Well I guess I should have heard of them from you.
I guess I should have heard of them from you.

Don't you see, don't you see, that the charade is over?
And all the "Best Deceptions" and "Clever Cover Story" awards go to you.
So kiss me hard 'cause this will be the last time that I let you.
You will be back someday and this awkward kiss that tells of other people's lips will be of service to keeping you away.

I heard about your regrets.
I heard that you were feeling sorry.
I heard from someone that you wish you could set things right between us.
Well I guess I should have heard of that from you.
I guess I should have heard of that from you.

I'm waiting for blood to flow to my fingers,
I'll be all right when my hands get warm.Ignoring the phone,
I'd rather say nothing. I'd rather you'd never heard my voice.
You're calling too late too late to be gracious you do not warrant long goodbyes.

Teddy Geiger - For You I Will (Confidence)

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/teddy_geiger/for_you_i_will_confidence_ver3_tab.htm



Wondering the streets, in a world underneath it all
Nothing seems to be, nothing tastes as sweet
As what I can't have
Like you and the way that you're twisting your hair
round your finger
Tonight I'm not afraid to tell you
What I feel about you.

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
and cannon ball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will

Forgive me if I stutter
From all of the clutter in my head
Cuz I could fall asleep in those eyes
Like a water bed
Do I seem familiar, i've crossed you in hallways
a thousand times, no more camouflage
I want to be exposed, and not be afraid to fall.

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannon ball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
You always want what you can't have
But I've got to try
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will
For you

If I could dim the lights in the mall
And create a mood I would
Shout out your name so it echos in every room
I would

That's what I'd do, That's what I'd do to get through to you

I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
And cannon ball into the water
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
You always want what you can't have
But I've got to try
I'm gonna muster every ounce of confidence I have
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will
For you I will

The Format - The First Single



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/f/format/first_single_ver5_crd.htm

LYRICS:

I can't stand to think about a heart so big it hurts like hell
Oh my god I gave my best but for three whole years to end like this
Well do you want to fall apart? I can't stop if you cant start
Do you want to fall apart? I could if you can try to fix what I've undone
Cause I hate what I've become

[Chorus]
You know me, oh you think you do you just don't seem to see
I've been waiting all this time to be, something I can't define
So let's cause a scene, clap our hands and stomp our feet or something,
yeah something I've just got to get myself over me

I could stand to do without, all the people I have left behind
What's the point of going around when it's a straight line baby, a straight, straight line
So let's make a list of who we need and it's not much if anything
Let's make a list of who we need and we'll throw it away
'Cause we don't need anyone, no we don't need anyone

[Chorus]

And I hate what I've become.

You know the night life is just not for me
'Cause all you really need are a few good friends
I don't want to go out and be on my own,
You know they started something I can't stand
You leave for the city,
Well count me out
'Cause all this time is wasted on everything I've done

[Chorus x2]

Yeah
Over me
Yeah
Over me

Death Cab for Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/d/death_cab_for_cutie/i_will_follow_you_into_the_dark_tab.htm



LYRICS:

Love of mine
Someday you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of the spark

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me "Son fear is the heart of love"
So I never went back

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me
Have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down, the time for sleep is now
But it's nothing to cry about 'cause we'll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
And I'll follow you into the dark.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - I Could Have Lied





GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/r/red_hot_chili_peppers/i_could_have_lied_ver3_tab.htm

There must be something
In the way I feel
That she don't want me to feel
The stare she bares cut me
I don't care
You see so what if I bleed

I could never change
Just what I feel
My face will never show
What is not real

A mountain never seems to have
The need to speak
A look that shares so many seek
The sweetest feeling
I got from you
The things I said to you were true

I could never change
Just what I feel
My face will never show
What is not real

I could have lied I'm such a fool
My eyes could never never never
Keep their cool
Showed her and I told her how
She struck me but I'm fucked up now

But now she's gone yes she's gone away
A soulful song
That would not stay
You see she hides 'cause she is scared
But I don't care
I won't be spared

I could have lied I'm such a fool
My eyes could never never never
Keep their cool
Showed her and I told her how
She struck me but I'm fucked up now

I could have lied I'm such a fool
My eyes could never never never
Keep their cool
Showed her and I told her how
She struck me but I'm fucked up now

[Spoken] Fucked up now...

Jason Reeves / Colbie Caillat - Permanent

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/j/jason_reeves/permanent_crd.htm



LYRICS:

You liked it so much in the city
You know I could not stand it there
You loved to get lost in the people
And pretend that they really cared

You know you're such a bad imposter
Hiding your wings beneath your coat
And I watched your footprints makin patterns
Away from me into the snow
Now I don't believe in nothing anymore

Love is permanent, not temporary
And it's driven straight into our chest
And buried much too deep
To just pull out like weeds in a garden
It's permanent
Well I'm sorry

So lately I've been goin crazy
Tryin to get you off my mind
Cuz thoughts of you hang just like pictures
And gather dust over the time

We hung them up just like real lovers
And drove our nails into the wall
Cuz we thought they'd be there forever
But we weren't permanent at all
And it's getting much too hard to see it now
Find More lyrics at www.sweetslyrics.com

Love is permanent not temporary
And it's driven straight into our chest
And buried much too deep
To just pull out like weeds in a garden
It's permanent
Well I'm sorry

Love is permanent. not temporary
And it's driven straight into our chest
And buried much too deep
To just pull out like weeds in a garden
It's permanent
Well I'm sorry

Love is permanent, not temporary
And it's driven straight into our chest
And buried much too deep
To just pull out like weeds in a garden
It's permanent
Well I'm sorry

I'm sorry
It's permanent
I'm sorry

Gavin DeGraw - I Dont Want to Be



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/g/gavin_degraw/i_dont_want_to_be_ver4_crd.htm

I don't need to be anything other than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anyone other than a birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going is knowing where I'm coming from

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by a identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one to notice?
I can't be the only one who's learned

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me

Can I have everyone's attention please
if you're not like this and that
You're gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain, the crust of creation
My whole situation made from clay, dust, stone
And now I'm telling everybody

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think of me and have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be anything other than me
I don't want to be
I don't want to be
I don't want to be

LYRICS:

There's no one in town I know
You gave us some place to go
I never said thank you for that
'thought I might get one more chance

What would you think of me now?
So lucky, so strong, so proud
I never said thank you for that
Now I'll never have a chance

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads, the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

So what would you think of me now?
So lucky, so strong, so proud
I never said thank you for that
Now I'll never have a chance

Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

(May angels lead you in)
May angels lead you in
(May angels lead you in)
May angels lead you in

And if you were with me tonight
I'd sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big
God couldn't let it live

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

There's always something
in the way
There's always something
getting through
but it's not me
it's You, it's You

sometimes ignorance
rings true
but hope is not in
what i know
it's not in me..me
it's in You, it's in You

it's all i know
it's all i know
it's all i know

i find peace when
i'm confused
i find hope when
i'm let down
not in me ... me
in You
it's in you

i hope to lose myself
for good
i hope to find it in the end
not in me ... me
in You
in You
in You

it's all i know
it's all i know
it's all i know

in You

its in You
its in You

there's always something in the way

Switchfoot - Only Hope



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/switchfoot/only_hope_tab.htm

There's a song that's inside of my soul
It's the one that I've tried to write
over and over again
I'm awake and in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and
over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands
And pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know now You're my only hope

Sing to me of the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing
and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that You have
for me over again

I give You my apathy
I'm giving You all of me
I want Your symphony
Singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I'm giving it back

Elliott Smith - Twilight



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/e/elliott_smith/twilight_ver3_crd.htm

LYRICS:

Haven't laughed this hard in a long time
I better stop now before I start crying
Go off to sleep in the sunshine
I don't want to see the day when it's dying
She's a sight to see (sight to see)
She's good to me (good to me)
But I'm already somebody's baby
She's a pretty thing
And she knows everything
But I'm already somebody's baby
You don't deserve to be lonely
But those drugs you've got won't make you feel better
Pretty soon you'll find it's the only
Little part of your life you're keeping together
I'm nice to you
I could make it through
But you're already somebody's baby
I could make you smile
If you stayed a while
But how long will you stay with me, baby?
Because your candle burns too bright
Well I almost forgot it was twilight
Even if I think that you are right
Well I'm tired of being down, I got no fight
You're wonderful
And it's beautiful
But I'm already somebody's baby
And if I went with you
I'd disappoint you too
Well I'm already somebody's baby
Already somebody's baby

Damien Rice - 9 Crimes

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/d/damien_rice/9_crimes_ver5_tab.htm



Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I'd do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be thinking of you
It's the wrong time
For somebody new
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright?
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright
With you?

Leave me out with the waste
This is not what I'd do
It's the wrong kind of place
To be cheating on you
It's the wrong time
She's pulling me through
It's a small crime
And I've got no excuse

Is that alright?
Give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright?
If you dont shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
If I give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

Is that alright?
If I give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright?
If you don't shoot it, how am I supposed to hold it
Is that alright?
If I give my gun away when it's loaded
Is that alright
Is that alright with you?

Damien Rice - Cannonball

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/d/damien_rice/cannonball_ver3_tab.htm



There’s still a little bit of your taste in my mouth
There’s still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
It’s still a little hard to say what's going on

There’s still a little bit of your ghost your witness
There’s still a little bit of your face i haven't kissed
You step a little closer each day
That I can´t say what´s going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love, it taught me to lie
Life, it taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

There’s still a little bit of your song in my ear
There’s still a little bit of your words i long to hear
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can´t see what´s going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So its not hard to fall
When you float like a cannon.

Stones taught me to fly
Love, it taught me to cry
So come on courage, teach me to be shy
'Cause its not hard to fall,
And I don't want to scare her
Its not hard to fall
And i don't want to lose
Its not hard to grow
When you know that you just don't know

Dancin' where the stars go blue
Dancin' where the evening fell
Dancin' in my wooden shoes
In a wedding gown

Dancin' out on 7th street
Dancin' through the underground

Are you happy now?

Where do you go when you're lonely
Where do you go when you're blue
Where do you go when you're lonely
I'll follow you
When the stars go blue
When the stars go blue

Laughing with your pretty mouth
Laughing with your broken eyes
Laughing with your lover's tongue
In a lullaby

Where do you go when you're lonely
Where do you go when you're blue
Where do you go when you're lonely
I'll follow you
When the stars go blue
The stars go blue, stars go blue

Follow you

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/tyler_hilton/girl_that_got_away_crd.htm

LYRICS:

I can't believe it's cold enough
To wear this coat I just put up
With every stip on crowded streets
I hold my breath to watch it leave
It never sounded quite as nice
You said my name and closed your eyes

Chorus:
One more shot to get me through the morning
One more night to get me through today
If all I had was one more word
Then all that I could say
I would say good bye to the girl who got away

Morning starts with coffee on
And a wasted thought to where you've gone
The leaves are changing every day
How they look so orange against the grey
I see your face but you're never there
I hear your name it's everywhere

Chorus

We talked about a film you'd seen
That reminded you of you and me
From the glass of wine for which I paid
'Til I caught the cab you took away

Chorus

So maybe I've got a lot to learn.
Or maybe I'm just hangin' on my words.
Maybe it's not a big concern.
But, if I raise my hand will I understand why I'm better with you?

So maybe there's not a lot to say
Or maybe i've grown doin' things my way (Yeah)
Or maybe things will be okay.
But if I get it together and do something clever, I'll make it better with you

So tell me, where did I go wrong before you?
Before you came along, well it seems like i was lost.
You showed me how to do things right, now I'm, so glad that now you're mine.
So let me say it all again.

So maybe there's not a lot to do.
Or maybe I'm just makin myself confused.
Or maybe i've got nothin' to lose.
But if I get out of line, just tell me you're mine, and how I'm better with you.

So tell me, where did I go wrong before you?
Before you came along, well it seems like I was lost.
You showed me how to do things right, now I'm, so glad that now you're mine.

So use me, don't let me screw it up.
I believe you lord, I need your touch.
Just a little spice of you could never be too much
I believe you lord, I need you now
To make it better all somehow.
To make it better all somehow.

The Spill Canvas - So Much

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/spill_canvas/so_much_crd.htm



LYRICS:

How does it feel to know you're everything I need
The butterflies in my stomach
They could bring me to my knees
How does it feel to know you're everything I want
I've got a hard time saying this
So I'll sing it in a song

Oh I adore the way you carry yourself
With the grace of a thousand angels overhead
I love the way the galaxy starts to melt
When we become one
When we become one
When we become one
When we become one

How does it feel
How does it feel when we get locked into a stare?
Please don't come looking for me
When I get lost in the mess of your hair
How do you feel when everything you've known
Gets thrown aside
Never fear, my dear, 'cause we have nothing left to hide

Oh I adore the way you carry yourself
With the grace of a thousand angels overhead
I love the way the galaxy starts to melt

Hold on to me girl
If you feel your grip getting loose
Just know that I'm right next to you
Hold on to me girl
If you feel your grip getting loose
Just know that I won't let you down

Well, I'm ready
Well, I'm ready
I am ready
To run away with you
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
To run away with me

Pack your things we can leave today
Pack your things we can leave today
Say our goodbyes and get on the train
Say goodbye
Just you and I in the sweet unknown
We can just call each other our home

If I had to choose a way to die
It'd be with you
In a goosebump infested embrace
With my overanxious hands cupping your face
In a goosebump infested embrace
With my overanxious hands cupping your cherub face

The Spill Canvas - All Hail the Heartbreaker

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/spill_canvas/all_hail_the_heartbreakers_tab.htm



LYRICS:

I had the notion that you'd make me change my ways
My bad habits would be gone in a matter of days
I had the feeling that you'd open up my eyes
To a whole new world that had since been in disguise

But that day will most likely never come for me
And it's just my luck to end up getting stuck
To everything you are

So tonight I'll sit and pick apart your pictures
And overanalyze your words
But the truth is that I've never fallen so hard
It's taking everything in me
Just to forget your sweater so far

I had the notion that you'd make me forget the world
But your undecisive mind shows me that
You are "just another girl"
I had the feeling that those looks you gave me were real
What if I ripped your heart apart at the seams
Maybe then you'd know how I feel

But that day will most likely never come for me
And it's just my luck to end up getting stuck
To everything you are

So tonight I'll sit and pick apart your pictures
And overanalyze your words
But the truth is that I've never fallen so hard
It's taking everything in me
Just to forget your sweater so far

I can honestly say
That I never, ever, ever felt this way
Your lips, your eyelashes, your skin
These are the parts of your body
That cause my comatose to begin

I can honestly say
That I never, ever, ever felt this way
Your lips, your eyelashes, your skin
These are the parts of your body
That cause my comatose to begin

I will sleep another day
I don't really need to anyway
What's the point when my dreams are infected
With words you used to say
I will breathe in a moment
As long as I keep my distance
I wouldn't want to go messing anything up

So don't go worrying about me
It's not like I think about you constantly
So maybe I do, but that shouldn't affect
Your life anymore
I knew it the moment you walked into the door

So don't go worrying about me
It's not like I think about this constantly
So maybe I do, but that shouldn't affect
Your life anymore
I knew it the moment you walked into the door

I'll let you get the best of me
Because there's nothing else that I do well
I'll let you get the best of me
Because there's nothing else that I do well
I'll be the giver and you'll be the taker
I guess that's how this one's gonna go I'll be the giver and you'll be the taker
You've got me down on my knees and I proclaim
All hail the heartbreaker

A Rocket to the Moon - She's Killing Me

GUITAR TAB THAT I WROTE:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/a/a_rocket_to_the_moon/shes_killing_me_crd.htm



LYRICS:

All my friends are coming over
And I hope nobody told her
She has a way of turning sunshine into rain
Ive got on that shirt she hates
I just know that face shell make
Even though it hurts, shes my favorite pain
She never drives her car, she drives me crazy
She went out of gas, and somehow Im to blame

Ill take her out and drop her off
On the outskirts of our town
Ill leave a trail of roses thatll lead back home (so come back home)
Shell pick a fight for no good reason
She knows Ill never leave
I love her half to death,
But shes killing me

All my friends, they say they like her
But I know behind my back,
they all think the same things, that I do
She spends her daddys credit card,
And says that Im the one whos lazy
Shes like a dream and a nightmare coming true

Ill take her out and drop her off
On the outskirts of our town
Ill leave a trail of roses thatll lead back home (so come back home)
Shell pick a fight for no good reason
She knows Ill never leave
I love her half to death,
But shes killing me

And I wouldnt have it any other way
She can change her clothes
She can change her hair
But shell always be the same
So I went out and bought her roses
She complained about the thorns
I caught her smiling
And thats what I do it for

Death Cab for Cutie - Lack of Color





And when I see you
I really see you upside down
but my brain knows better
it picks you up and turns you around
turns you around
turns you around
If you feel discouraged
that there's a lack of color here
please don't worry lover
it's really bursting at the seams
absorbing everything
the spectrum's a to z
This is fact not fiction
for the first time in years
all the girls in every girlie magazine
can't make me feel
any less alone
I'm reaching for the phone
to call at 7:03
and on your machine I slur a plea for you to come home
but I know it's too late
I should have given you a reason to stay
given you a reason to stay
given you a reason to stay
given you a reason to stay
this is fact not fiction
for the first time in years

The Audition - Don't Be So Hard

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/the_audition/dont_be_so_hard_acoustic_ver3_tab.htm





LYRICS:

Don't be so hard on yourself
The name of the game is humiliation,
And thanks for your admiration.
I never thought I'd say this:
The way that we play has such confrontation:
Guilt by association.

"Hold me, hold me..."
"If I were to..."
"I can't, can't, I swear I can't let you."
"It's all in your hands but I'll do what I can,
So you can do what you have to."

Don't think too hard about it,
You never knew I'd get this far,
Would get this far without you.
Relax, stand back and watch it happen.
I'll wave my goodbyes into the night and say

"Hold me, hold me..."
"If I were to..."
"I can't, can't, I swear I can't let you."
"It's all in your hands but I'll do what I can,
So you can do what you have to."

Say you'll never, ever. Say you'll never, ever.
Say you'll never let me go.
Say you'll never, ever. Say you'll never, ever.
Say you'll never tell a soul.

"Hold me, hold me..."
"If I were to..."
"I can't, can't, I swear I can't let you."
"It's all in your hands but I'll do what I can,
So you can do what you have to."

Saosin - Seven Years



GUITAR TAB

LYRICS:

Taking on seven years that holy ghost had left alone
Test my arms, kick like crazy
And i've been trying way too long
Only pushed the way off to fight you
Now i'm sorry, i'm sorry i'm not sure
Getting off my chest, the story ends

I would find a way without you
I would find a way without you

That mistake was gold
And i know that without you
It's something that i could never do
And that was why, stapled the eyes and seven dates
For me to sell machines and tear on

Seven years
You assured me that i'd be fine if i complied
Only pushed the way off to fight you
Now i'm sorry, i'm sorry i'm not sure
Getting off my chest, the story ends
Without you
I would find a way without you

That mistake was gold
And i know that without you
It's something that i could never ever ever ever
And that was why, stapled the eyes and seven dates
For me to sell machines and tear on

Don't treat me, i'm to blame
Don't treat me like i ever accused you

Death Cab for Cutie - Photobooth





LYRICS:

I remember when the days were long,
And the nights when the living room was on the lawn.
Constant quarreling, the childish fits, and our clothes in a pile on the ottoman.
All the slander and double-speak
Were only foolish attempts to show you did not mean
Anything but the blatant proof was your lips touching mine in the photobooth.

And as the summer's ending,
The cool air will put your hard heart away.
You were so condescending...
And this is all that's left:
Scraping paper to document.
I've packed a change of clothes and it's time to move on.

Cup your mouth to compress the sound,
Skinny dipping with the kids from a nearby town.
And everything that I said was true,
As the flashes blinded us in the photobooth.
Well, I lost track, and then those words were said.
You took the wheel and you steered us into my bed.
Soon we woke and I walked you home,
And it was pretty clear that it was hardly love.

And as the summer's ending,
The cool air will rush your hard heart away.
You were so condescending.
And this is all that's left:
Scraping paper to document.
I've packed a change of clothes and it's time to move on.

And as the summer's ending,
The cool air will rush your hard heart away.
You were so condescending,
As the alcohol drained the days.

And as the summer's ending,
The cool air will rush your hard heart away.
You were so condescending.
And this is all that's left:
The empty bottles, spent cigarettes.
So pack a change of clothes, 'cause it's time to move on.

The Maine - The Way We Talk





GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/the_maine/the_way_we_talk_ver2_crd.htm

LYRICS:

The Way We Talk
She's fresh to death,
She'll be the death of you,
Seduction leads to destruction.
She's fresh to death,
She'll be the death of me,
She's fresh but not so clean.

Cute face slim waist,
She's got em' in a craze,
Yeah I think he's going crazy.
When she speaks it makes me grind my teeth,
Yet he still thinks she's amazing.
And she's been playing games,
Ever since 98',
Shallow is as shallow does,
Some people never change.

She's so fine,
She's thinks she's so damn fine.
She might be fine,
But she ain't worth a second of your time.

You're as fake as the moans you make,
And you're as weak as the hearts you break.
You're as fake as the moans you make,
So just give us a little break.

Sex sells,
And your sex cells make all the lost boys drool.
Cause you're a dime,
But they'll have to wait in line,
Until one of them makes it two of you.
Cute face slim waist,
You still got em' in a craze,
Yeah I think I'm going crazy.
I have a long list of things to say,
But I'll leave it at,
You amaze me.

You're as fake as the moans you make,
And you're as weak as the hearts you break.
You're as fake as the moans you make,
So just give us a little break

The Early November - Sunday Drive

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/e/early_november/sunday_drive_ver3_tab.htm




LYRICS:

And we wait above a road.
We're turning to go home.
And the silence from the side of the car
Tells me everything and how we are.
'Cause there's no more trying to make this so right,
There's no more trying tonight.

And you know it's not so easy when you're all alone.
And I wonder if I'm alone in your head.

I know something is wrong, I just dont know what to do.
You say it's only me and that I'm so perfect for you.
I don't want to try no more, I dont want to make this right.
I just want you to be true to me, one time.

And you know it's not so easy when you're all alone.
And I wonder if I'm alone in your head.

Twelve days gone by since I have saw you last.
I'll give this one more try, I'll give it all my best.
And I'll ask "What could you be doing that is so much fun?
without me by your side, without me by your side?"

And I will take a step back, and I'll let you ahead.
And I will take a step away and see if you come back.
Because there's no more trying to make this so right,
There's no more trying, there's no more trying tonight.

We'll never be the same.
We will never be the same.
We will never be the same.
We will never be the same until you're done.

The Maine - I Must Be Dreaming



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/the_maine/i_must_be_dreaming_crd.htm

LYRICS:

She thinks I'm crazy.
Judging by the faces that she's making.
And I think she's pretty.
But pretty's just part of the things she does that amaze me.
And she calls me sweetheart.
I love it when she wakes me when it's still dark.
And she watches the sun.
But she's the only one I have my eyes on.

Tell me that you love me.
And it'll be alright.
Are you thinking of me?
Just come with me tonight.
You know I need you.
Just like you need me.
Can't stop, Won't stop.
I must be dreaming.
Can't stop, Won't stop.
I must be dreaming.

She moves in closer.
Whispering to me "I thought I told ya"
And oh she's playing games now.
And I figured it out now that we're
Now that we're closer.
Two kids, one love.
Who cares it we making it up.
Her voice is sweet sound.
Our clothes lay on the ground.
She moves in closer.
Whispers "I though I told ya"

Tell me that you love me.
And it'll be alright.
Are you thinking of me?
Just come with me tonight.
You know I need you.
Just like you need me.
Can't stop, Won't stop.
I must be dreaming.
Can't stop, Won't stop.
I must be dreaming.

Remember the day when we started this.
And she made the shape of my heart with her hands.
We try to make some sense of it.
But she called me on the phone and said..

Tell me that you love me.
And it'll be alright.
Are you thinking of me?
Just come with me tonight.
You know I need you.
Just like you need me.
Can't stop, Won't stop.
I must be dreaming.
Go one and tell em that you love me
And it'll be alright. (I must be dreaming)
Are you thinking of me.
Just come with me tonight.(I must be dreaming)
She moves in closer.
Can't stop, Won't stop.
I must be dreaming.

The Maine - Mr. Winter




GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/the_maine/mr_winter_tab.htm

LYRICS:

When you left, she was a wreck
Cause she said, you left a mess
But you said that you'd be back home
Didn't wanna see her all alone

And you bet she took your word
Cause she said you'll never learn
All the things that you put her through
Don't know why she's coming back to you

But she says she's alone
But she knows she's in love

Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the 3 months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long

Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all alone
Please just say you'll come back

And he's cold, but he keeps you warm
Cause his love still burns for you
And you don't know what's in store
But you both know what is true

Oh, she says she's alone
But she knows she's in love

Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the 3 months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long

Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all alone
Please just say you'll come back

Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the 3 months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long

Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all alone
Please just say you'll come back

Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh, Whoa-oh-oh-oh

But you said that you'd be back home
Didn't wanna see her all alone
All the things that you put her through
Don't know why she's coming back to you

But you said that you'd be back home
Didn't wanna see her all alone
All the things that you put her through
Don't know why she's coming back to you

Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the 3 months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long

Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all alone
Please just say you'll come back

Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the 3 months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long

Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all alone
Please just say you'll come back - home

The Maine - Everything I Ask For




GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/t/the_maine/everything_i_ask_for_ver4_tab.htm

LYRICS:

She takes her time with the little things
Love notes reminding me
She wears red when she's feeling hot
I have her but that's all I've got
She looks best without her clothes
I know it's wrong but that's THE WAY IT GOES

I don't know what she sees in me
But I'm happy that she's happy now
That she's with me
And I'm freakin' out
Because I'm just so lucky

Oh she makes me feel like shit
It's always something
But I can't get over it
She thinks it's nothing
Because she's
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And just a little bit more
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And so much more

She loves music but she hates my band
Loves Prince she's his biggest fan
She's not big on holding hands
But that's alright cause I've still got her
She keeps up on current affairs
PRADA IS WHAT SHE WEARS

I don't know what she sees in me
But I'm happy that she's happy now
That she's with me
And I'm freakin' out
Because I'm just so lucky

Oh she makes me feel like shit
It's always something
But I can't get over it
She thinks it's nothing
Because she's
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And just a little bit more
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And so much more

Fist fights turn into sex
I wonder what comes next
She loves to always keep me guessing

And she (SHE!)
won't (WON'T)
give it up.
And we (WE!)
Both (BOTH)
know it's because...

Oh she makes me feel like shit
It's always something
But I can't get over it
She thinks it's nothing
Because she's
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And just a little bit more
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And just a little bit more
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And so much more
Everything I ask for
Everything I ask for
And so much more

The Scene Aesthetic - Beauty in the Breakdown




LYRICS:

Come on, take a step towards me
So you can figure me out
I've been hoping and praying for a single way
To show you what I'm all about
And I know, and I know this is the only way of pleasing the crowds
But when this is over and done with and we walk away
There should be no doubts

So let's get a little closer now
Let's get a little closer now

You say, you say that we're all tied up
And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
But at the same time we're still young
We have the time to realize that we were wrong

Come on love run with me
Get the hell out of this town
So we can get a better feel for each other
I'll take you, back to, when you
Remembered how you used to
Just live your life a little for me
Take the time to let it go
Step away and watch me grow

So let's get a little closer now
Let's get a little closer now

You say, you say that we're all tied up
And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
But at the same time we're still young
We have the time to realize that we were wrong

You can stay if you want to
And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me
You can stay if you want to, and I’ll try
You can stay if you want to
And I write to you and tell you how you've always been so special to me
You can stay if you want to, and I’ll try

To keep you close to me (x3)

You say, you say that we're all tied up
And wrapped around in useless, useless states of mind
But at the same time we're still young
We have the time to realize that we were wrong

Rise Against - Swing Life Away

Am I loud and clear or am I breaking up?
Am I still your charm or am I just bad luck?
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

I'll show you mine if you show me yours first,
Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse.
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words.

[Chorus]
We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage.
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand.

I've been here so long; think that its time to move.
The winter's so cold summer's over too soon.
so let's pack our bags and settle down where palm trees grow.

I've got some friends, some that I hardly know.
But we've had some times I wouldn't trade for the world.
We chase these days down with talks of the places that we will go.

[Chorus]
We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage.
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand.
Until you hold my hand.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours first,
Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse.
Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words.

[Chorus]
We live on front porches and swing life away,
We get by just fine here on minimum wage.
If love is a labor I'll slave 'til the end,
I won't cross these streets until you hold my hand.
Until you hold my hand.

Swing life away,
Swing life away,
Swing life away,
Swing life away.

The Hand Me Down Kids - Vacate



LYRICS:

If you can forget me
Then why are you still here?
You said you'd be leaving
You made it very clear
And I'm going crazy
Trying to walk away
My mind says to vacate
But my heart says I need to stay
I guess we're something you can't throw away

I shoulda said no
I shoulda went home
Shoulda just left
That would have been for the best

Oh, girl, what have we gotten ourselves into?

We scream, we fight
It lasts a night
And then I realize
I can't live life if it's without you

If you can forget me
Then why are you still here?
You said you'd be leaving
You made it very clear
And I'm going crazy
Trying to walk away
My mind says to vacate
But my heart says I need to stay
I guess we're something you can't throw away

You're saying "baby"
I'm saying "maybe."
I'm thinking lately
I've missed you bad

Oh, girl, what have we gotten ourselves into?

We laugh, we kiss
Our love is almost fixed
Because I've realized
I can't live life if it's without you

But first things first
I've got to know
Are you sure
You don't wanna let go?
Because last time
You said the same
And left me there
In the rain

But now you realize
You can't live life if it's without me

If you can forget me
Then why are you still here?
You said you'd be leaving
You made it very clear
And I'm going crazy
Trying to walk away
My mind says to vacate
But my heart says I need to stay
I guess we're something you can't throw away

Oh, girl, what have we gotten ourselves into?
Oh, girl, what have we gotten ourselves into?
Oh, girl, what have we gotten ourselves into?
Oh, girl, what have we gotten ourselves into?

If you can forget me
Then why are you still here?
You said you'd be leaving
You made it very clear
And I'm going crazy
Trying to walk away
My mind says to vacate
But my heart says I need to stay
I guess we're something you can't throw away
We'll make this work no matter what it takes

NeverShoutNever - ShesGotStyle

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/n/nevershoutnever/shes_got_style_ver3_crd.htm



LYRICS:

If its not those cowboy boots in the summer
Oh my God I pray for another
Chance to drive down back highways
Til I stumble upon your beautiful face
Your presence isn't what kills me
It's that artistic gleam
That's taking over my scenery
Dream by dream

You might think I'm incapable
Of loving a soul like yours
You might think I'm a fool
For you

Girl you got style
That what I love about you
The way that you still back and watch this grow
You got dreams
And therefore I believe in you
All the small town people with their big remarks
They aint got jack to say about my movie star
she's got style

If its not the fact that I'm a wee bit younger
Or the truth that I'm so naive
My heart keeps leaping back to you
Like a dog tied to a tree
I know it sounds crazy
Its ridiculous to me
But without by my side girl

You might think I'm incapable
Of loving a soul like yours
You might think I'm a fool
For you

Girl you got style
That what I love about you
The way that you still back and watch this grow
You got dreams
And therefore I believe in you
All the small town people with their big remarks
They aint got jack to say about my movie star

What are the odds of finding someone just like you
Tell me why I never wanted to go back home
I'm still falling for you today
