Cute Is What We Aim For - Teasing to Please

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/c/cute_is_what_we_aim_for/teasing_to_please_live_acoustic_tab.htm



LYRICS:

And so typically
And so typically
Soft, set back and perfectly dropped
Tough and learn, and so perfectly taught
I am as he does
You are as she was
And that's because
And that's because
But you never try
But you never try

Cause conflict and make your top pick
Restitch my ripped jeans
And take the old ones
Take the old ones out back
Sew them tight at the seams please
I've got so many ripped knees, ripped knees

I'm selfish as selfish comes
You're giving me a run for my money
Honey

This is a hint that you take
And you pull and you find a way out
of what you got yourself into
But when you try
But when you try to get out you'll never find
That most definitely I will be attracted to you
If you pick my left side
Because you know how we do, we do

I'm selfish as selfish comes
You're giving me a run for my money
Honey

Cause conflict and make your top pick
Restitch my ripped jeans
And take the old ones
Take the old ones out back
Sew them tight at the seams please
I've got so many ripped knees, ripped knees

I'm selfish as selfish comes
You're giving me a run for my money

I'm selfish as selfish comes
You're giving me a run for my money
Honey

I'm selfish as selfish comes
You're giving me a run for my money

Say Anything - Crush'd

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/say_anything/crushd_ver3_tab.htm



LYRICS:

When I was 8 years old
Before puberty took hold
I thought I
would end up beside a princess bride
And love was indivisible
Never mind how my taste reflects
A disturbing Oedipus complex
It's not awkward girl
The compliments are coming next

You're no witch, you're no wench,
You're like Bjork with better fashion sense
A phone, 50 cents, and I'm building up my confidence
Respect to your work, you're an artist,
I'm a silly jerk
I think that dynamic could work

I have a total crush on you, baby
And I can't let it go, oh no
I have a total crush on you baby, baby!
If only I could let you know

We spoke no joke
I started shedding slutty girls
Like snake skin, my collection
Acquired through shallow misdirection
And as I drive tonight
West coast sky
Daring me to try
I feel alive tonight
Possibility, that I'm your guy
Though I suffer from dyslexia,
Mild man-orexia
And my hair cannot commit
To one popular genre of music
And though they all claim,
That a girl can't take a boy's last name
Or end up divorced and estranged
I'm counting on you

I have a total crush on you, baby
And I can't let it go, oh no
I have a total crush on you baby, baby!
If only I could let you know!

Your other suitors are no poets
They're only actors who can play guitar
Have I won your heart?
They're not students or screenwriters
They're only models that they taught to read
Love would you agree?

I have a total crush on you, baby
And I can't let it go, oh no
I have a total crush on you baby, baby!
If only I could

Quite sure I love you, Sherri
Quite sure you love me too
We should make a verbal agreement only to kiss each other
Because one time, beneath the sky, outside my new york pigsty
I saw a vision of you and I! haha! alright!

Did it hurt? Did it hurt? Did it hurt,
When you fell from heaven girl?
Did it hurt? Did it hurt? Did it hurt,
When you fell from heaven girl?
La da-da da-da da-da, la da-da da-da
La da-da da-da da-da, la da-da da-da

Ben Harper - Forever

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/ben_harper/forever_ver2_tab.htm



LYRICS:

Not talkin' 'bout a year
No not three or four
I don't want that kind of forever
In my life anymore
Forever always seems
to be around when it begins
but forever never seems
to be around when it ends
So give me your forever
Please your forever
Not a day less will do From you

People spend so much time
Every single day
Runnin' 'round all over town
Givin' their forever away
But no not me
I won't let my forever roam
and now I hope I can find
my forever a home
So give me your forever
Please your forever
Not a day less will do
From you

Like a handless clock with numbers
An infinite of time
No not the forever found
Only in the mind
Forever always seems
to be around when things begin
but forever never seems
to be around when things end
So give me your forever
Please your forever
Not a day less will do
From you

Armor For Sleep - Remember to Feel Real



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/a/armor_for_sleep/remember_to_feel_real_tab.htm

LYRICS:

So here's the truth:
You were right all along,
They were never my friends,
And I was living a lie,
But I won't fall for it next time.

You figured me out
I'm like a leaf in the wind
I try and find who I am, but wind up lost in the end.

Somtimes it's hard to know whats real when you're not
'Cause you know I change myself to impress whoever happens to be next to me
But I'm sick of trying so hard.

Waste all your time with me
I know I'm a mess right now
Don't give up, believe...
I'd wait it out for you.

Waste all your time with me
I know I'm a mess right now
Don't give up, believe...
I'd wait it out for you.

Every day i'm just making my rounds, just digging a home
six feet underground.

Sometimes it's hard to know what's real when you're not.
'Cause you know I change myself to impress whoever happens to be next to me.
But I'm sick of trying so hard.

Waste all your time with me.
I know I'm a mess right now.
Don't give up, believe...
I'd wait it out for you.

Waste all your time with me
I know I'm a mess right now
Don't give up, believe...
I'd wait it out for you.

Nothing's here for me...
Nothing's here for me but you.
Nothing's here for me BUT YOU!

Waste all your time with me.
I know I'm a mess right now.
Don't give up, believe...
I'd wait it out for you.

Waste all your time with me
I know I'm a mess right now
Don't give up, believe...
I'd wait it out for you.

I'd wait it out for you.

I'd wait it out for you.

Jimmy Eat World - Work

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/j/jimmy_eat_world/work_ver2_tab.htm

LYRICS:

If you only once would let me
Only just one time
Then be happy with the consequence
With whatever's gonna happen tonight
Don't think we're not serious
When's it ever not
The love we make is give and it's take
I'm game to play along

All I can say
I shouldn't say
Can we take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time

oh oh, oh oh oh
oh oh, oh oh oh

All the best DJs are saving
Their slowest song for last
When the dance is through
Its me and you
Come on would it really be so bad
The things we think might be the same
But I won't fight for more
Its just not me to wear it on my sleeve
Count on that for sure

All I can say
I shouldn't say
Can we take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time
You want to take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time
Yeah - We still have time

oh oh (ahhhhhhhh)
oh oh (ahhhhhhhh)
oh oh (ahhhhhhhh)
oh oh (ahhhhhhhh)

Can't say I was never wrong
But some blame rests on you
Work and play they're never okay
To mix the way we do

All I can say
I shouldn't say
Can we take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time
You want to take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time
We still have time

oh oh, oh oh oh
oh oh, oh

Making April - These Are the Nights

GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/making_april/these_are_the_nights_ver2_tab.htm
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/making_april/these_are_the_nights_ver2_crd.htm



LYRICS:

Our bodies to hand with the Jersey shoreline
Connecting the tide to the sand that was dry
And we both laid entwined, stared at the night
Clouds overhead, but that was all right
‘Cause then and there with the wind in your hair
Heaven was jealous to merely look fair against you
And all I need now is for this moon to keep light in its desolate skyline for good

‘Cause these are the nights that you know when you’re there
You couldn’t have planned it much better I swear and you hope
That your senses aren’t failing you now
And you think to yourself now I could be wrong
But I might have just stolen this scene from a song and you know
That your senses aren’t failing you now, but they’re slipping away

So divine is this happening
Can’t I just graze your skin
For the rest of our time
But time isn’t letting this night go on
Till then and there, the wind in your hair
Nothing in this world could keep me from staring at you
And all I need now is for that sun to stay under its glowing horizon for good, whoaoaoa

‘Cause these are the nights that you know when you’re there
You couldn’t have planned it much better I swear and you hope
That your senses aren’t failing you now
And you think to yourself now I could be wrong
But I might have just stolen this scene from a song and you know
That your senses aren’t failing you now

Failing you now
You could get lost in a night like this
So empty your thoughts and open your heart to the bliss
These are the nights, these are the nights
These are the nights, these are the nights

Forever the Sickest Kids - She's A Lady



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/f/forever_the_sickest_kids/shes_a_lady_tab.htm

LYRICS:

I'm in love with a girl I hate
She enjoys pointing out every bad thing about me
I'm in love with a critic and a skeptic
A traitor, I'd trade her in a second

She's a backseat driver
A drama provider an instant update of the world
Shes a first class liar a constant forgetter
(she's attractive but bitter)

Did you scream enough to make her cry
If you turn around, turn around, baby don't return to me
If you think that I'm not worth your time
She's a lady
And ladies shouldn't be messed with
She's a lady
And ladies shouldn't be messed with

Take off your shoes
Come in the room
And baby let's try not to argue
Turn out the lights
Turn on the radio
How can we fight when I'm too busy loving you
I'm too busy loving you
I'm too busy loving you

Did you scream enough to make her cry
If you turn around turn around baby don't return to me
If you think that I'm not worth your time
She's a lady
And ladies shouldn't be messed with
She's a lady
And ladies shouldn't be messed with

Here I am
There you go again, again
And we will not ever be eighteen again, again

And I'm worn out of fighting
And every night you leave crying
And I could use some time
And here I am
There you go again (again)

So here I am and I'm dying
And I'm waiting for you, waiting for you
Come back, come back to me
And I'll take you gladly
And I'll take you in again

Did you scream enough to make her cry
If you turn around turn around baby don't return to me
If you think that I'm not worth your time

Did you scream enough to make her cry
If you turn around turn around baby don't return to me
If you think that I'm not worth your time
She's a lady
And ladies shouldn't be messed with
Shes a lady
And ladies shouldn't be messed with

The Starting Line - The Best of Me



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/starting_line/best_of_me_acoustic_tab.htm


LYRICS:

tell me what you thought about
when you were gone and so alone
the worst is over
you can have the best of me
we got older but we're still young
we never grew out of this feeling that we wont give up

here we lay again
on two separate beds
riding phone lines
to meet a familiar voice
and pictures drawn from memory
we reflect on miscommunication
and misunderstandings
and missing each other too
much to have had to let go

we turn our music down
and we whisper
say what your thinking right now
tell me what you thought about
when you were gone and so alone
the worst is over
you can have the best of me
we got older but we're still young
we never grew out of this feeling that we wont give up

jumping to conclusions
made me fall away from you
i'm so glad that the truth
has brought back together me and you

we're sitting on the ground
and we whisper
say what your thinking outloud

tell me what you thought about
when you were gone and so alone
the worst is over
you can have the best of me
we got older but we're still young
we never grew out of this feeling that we wont give up

we turn our music down
and we whisper
we're sitting on the ground
and we whisper
we turn our music down
we're sitting on the ground
and next time i'm in town
we will kiss girl
we will kiss girl

tell me what you thought about
when you were gone and so alone
the worst is over
you can have the best of me
we got older but we're still young
we never grew out of this feeling that we wont
feeling that we cant
we're not ready to give up

we got older but we're still young
we never grew out of this feeling that we wont give up

Jack's Mannequin - The Mixed Tape



GUITAR TAB:
http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/j/jacks_mannequin/the_mixed_tape_tab.htm

LYRICS:

This is morning
That's when I spend the most time
Thinking 'bout what I've given up
This is a warning
When you start the day just to close the curtains
You're thinking 'bout what I've given up

Where are you now?
As I'm swimming through the stereo
I'm writing you a symphony of sound
Where are you now?
As I rearrange the songs again
This mix could burn a hole in anyone
But it was you I was thinking of

I read your letter
The one you left when you broke into my house
Retracing every step you made
And you said you meant it
And there's a piece of me in every single
Second of every single day
But if it's true then tell me how it got this way

Where are you now?
As I'm swimming through the stereo
I'm writing you a symphony of sound
Where are you now?
As I rearrange the songs again
This mix could burn a hole in anyone
But it was you I was thinking of

And I can't get to you
I can't get to you
I can't get to you (you, you)

Where are you now?
As I'm swimming through the stereo
I conduct a symphony of sound
Where are you now?
As I'm cutting through you track by track
I swear to God this mix could sink the sun
But it was you I was thinking of

And where are you now?
And where are you now?

And this is my mixed tape for her
It's like I wrote every note
With my own fingers
