Parade The Day - Growing Old




LYRICS:

The light from the east coast
off your eyes screams please don't go,
cause I can't do this alone
And tonight, as I leave notes
on the side, of your bed post
they all shows signs of hope and you say....

Sing to me slowly the words that you wrote me
each line racing through your mind
will you wait for me, after I fall asleap

So lets live in this day I know your dying to say it
lets just live in this moment and pretend like we own it
we will all grow older, but with you here I'll die slower

Sing to me slowly the words that you wrote me
each line racing through your mind
will you wait for me, after I fall asleep

We will all grow older, but with you here I'll die slower
We will all grow older, but with you here I'll die slower

Marry me on this boat tied to a rope in the ocean. So far out to sea no one will ever find us where were going. Lets toast to the great unknown, fingerprints mark where we grew old. As I write to you knowing these notes won't find where were going

We will all grow older, but with you here I'll die slower

My American Heart - Tired and Uninspired




LYRICS:

Home, was always quiet 'til the sun went down.
But we were stowaways.
Yeah, we were so afraid.

So, we ran out of town.
From everyone who was calling us out.
Relax, relax.
Exhale and breathe, just breathe for me.

You are the earth beneath my feet,
You are my gravity.
Cause lately I've been tired and uninspired.
Cause lately I've been tired, oh-so tired.

Oh, then our flame,
It went away.
You knew you had to leave and couldn't stay.
Be strong for me, I'll be strong for you.
Be strong for me, I'll be strong for you.

You are the earth beneath my feet,
You are my gravity.
Cause lately I've been tired and uninspired.
Cause lately I've been tired, oh-so tired.

And be strong for me.
Be strong for me.
And I'll be strong for you, oh, you.

You are the earth beneath my feet,
You are my gravity.
Cause lately I've been tired and uninspired.
Cause lately I've been tired and uninspired.

You are the earth beneath my feet,
You are my gravity.
You are the earth beneath my feet.
You are my gravity.

Cause lately I've been tired and uninspired.
Cause lately I've been tired, oh-so tired.

William Tell - Young At Heart




LYRICS:

She spent her childhood
Somewhere deep in Missouri
Grew up faster than her heart
Mom said "You're a child of God"
She said "But mom I'm in such a hurry"
It might be California maybe New York

Cause you know we're all young at heart
You've taught me so much
And brought me so far
I know you'll understand
I know you've felt like me before
Cause you know we're all young at heart

Met at his friends house
There were cigarettes and Ekko in her
He told her how he would like to learn to fly
It went from love to worst
With a child due in December
She left him with a note in July

It said that we're all young at heart
You've taught me so much
And brought me so far
I know you'll understand
I know you've felt like me before
Cause you know we're all young at heart

I know you'd like for me to stay
And you could have it that way
But you'd never really have me you know
You could give me so much
But sometimes that's not enough
No, it's not enough for me

She's 54
Felt she needed more than her prescription
Laid there 8 days cold on the florr
Finally a neighbor called
He said "Something seems suspicious"
They had to break down the door

They found that we're all young at heart
You've taught me so much
And brought me so far
I know you'll understand
I know you've felt like me before
Cause you know we're all young at heart

I thought I needed you
Now I need so much more
I thought I found the truth
Now it seems like it's still so far
Sold my heart for the perfect drug
It was the worst
Coming down from love..

We're all young at heart
You've taught me so much
And brought me so far
I know you'll understand
I know you've felt like me before
Cause you know we're all young..

Meg and Dia - Halloween




LYRICS:

I've decided I'm done
Don't care to move on
Not used to losing someone
If I lost faith
Was no choice I made
Accept the excuse of no one
Your careful silence can't replace your stupid smile
Casseroles and handshakes can't restore
Twelve damn years of ours
You stole me

I don't dare to try again
They said time will heal
And time will mend
And on Halloween
The last time you left
If I knew you were never coming back
I would've held on to that last day
Instead of 'here's your keys'
The last thing I'd say would be 'I love you'
Just in case
I'm only myself when I'm with you, baby

I'll be with you someday

Take down my mirror
My pictures of costumes and you
Put aside posters and books and aged fortunes
And all this reminds me of you
With a pat on the back they say "honey, it's time to move on
I'm sure we can find you a hobby now that he's gone"
I stole you

I don't dare to try again
They said time will heal
And time will mend
And on Halloween
The last time you left
If I knew you were never coming back
I would've held on to that last day
Instead of 'here's your keys'
The last thing I'd say would be 'I love you'
Just in case
I'm only myself when I'm with you, baby

They don't understand
We were like this since the first time we met
We were born holding hands
Give me flowers and cards
I'll smile all they want
If they give me what I want
Give me what I want!

I don't dare to try again
They said time will heal
And time will mend
And on Halloween
The last time you left
If I knew you were never coming back
I would've held on to that last day
Instead of 'here's your keys'
The last thing I'd say would be 'I love you'
Just in case
I'm only myself when I'm with you, baby

I'll be with you someday

and pulled out a pass
that says you can take me anywhere.

Sha la la la.
Sha la la la la la la.

We're on the top of the world,
here tonight.

I'm up here running in repeat.

We're at the top of the world,
you and I.

Dashboard Confessional - Ghost Of A Good Thing




LYRICS:

I guess it’s luck, but it’s the same
Hard luck, you’ve been trying to tame
Maybe it’s love, but it’s like you said
“Love is like a role that we play.”

Mayday Parade - When I Get Home Your So Dead






(Acoustic)

LYRICS:

The words are coming I feel terrible
Is it typical for us to act like this
Am I just another scene
From a movie that you've seen 100 times
Cause baby you weren't the first or the last or the worst
And I've got to fill the blanks in the past with a verse
And we could sit around and cry but frankly your not worth it
Anymore

[Chorus:]
So say hello to all the boys at the top of this table that you're under
Lipstick lullabies
This is sorry for the last time
And baby I understand that you're making new friends
This is how you get by
The moral this time is
Girls make boys cry

On any other day I'd shoot the boy
But your simple toy
Had caused a scene like that
Leave him hanging on the walls
Just a picture in the hall
Like 100 more
Consider this as a gift as you taste him on your lips
And he's making you scream with his hands on your hips
I hope he's leaving you empty baby this is just a fix
For such a simple little whore

[Chorus]

And your name remains the same
All that has changed is this pretty face
So pull the trigger
It never gets closer
You want to start over
But never start over

Pull the trigger
It never gets closer
You want to start over
but never start over

[Chorus]

Say hello
Say hello

Lipstick lullabies
This is sorry for the last time
And baby I understand how you're making new friends
This is how you get by
The moral this time is
Girls make boys cry and...

Ron Pope - A Drop In The Ocean






LYRICS:

A drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
Its like wishing for rain as i stand in the desert
But i'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my heaven.

I dont wanna waste the weekend
If you dont love me, pretend a few more hours, then its time to go
As my train rolls down the east coast I wonder how you keep warm
Its too late to cry
To broken to move on
And still i cant let you be
Most nights i hardly sleep
Don't take what you dont need from me

Its just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
Its like wishing for rain as i stand in the desert
But i'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my heaven.

Misplaced trust in old friends
Never counting regrets
By the grace of god i do not rest at all
In new England as the leaves change
The last excuse ill claim, i was a boy who loved a woman like a little girl
And still i cant let you be
Most nights i hardly sleep
Dont take what you dont need from me

Its just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
Its like wishing for rain as i stand in the desert
But i'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my,

Heaven doesnt seem far away anymore no no
Heaven doesnt seem far away
Heaven doesnt seem far away anymore no no
Heaven doesnt seem far away

A drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
Its like wishing for rain as i stand in the desert
But i'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my heaven.

You are my heaven

Count the Stars - All Good Things



LYRICS:

This air is contagious, no one can save us,
nothing this good could ever last,
tonight is a drug, that I won’t give up,
this is my favorite addiction
the summer comes to a close,
and no one knows what we know,
no one knows

I can’t explain, what made me stay,
I fall into the same mistakes,
like all good things, they never last, the past is past

I’d rather be drowning, than swimming away,
that’s something that will never change,
I swallow regret, and I hope for the best,
if this is all that i can do

The summer comes to a close,
and no one knows what we know,
no one knows

I can’t explain, what made me stay,
I fall into the same mistakes,
like all good things, they never last, the past is past

This is why I never try, to make it seem we shouldn’t leave,
this is why I never try
I never try

This air is contagious, no one can save us, but I wait

I must confess, I’m not impressed,
there’s nothing worse than losing you,
I must confess, I’m not the same like all good things
All good things
All good things
All good things

I must confess, I’m not impressed,
there’s nothing worse than losing you

I must confess, I’m not the same,
there’s nothing worse than losing you
than losing you
I'm losing you
I'm losing you

Modest Mouse - 3rd Planet






LYRICS:

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
I've got this thing that I consider my only art of fucking people over.

My boss just quit the job
says he's goin out to find blind spots and he'll do it.

The 3rd planet is sure that they're being watched
by an eye in the sky that can't be stopped.
When you get to the promise land
your gonna shake that eyes hand.

Your heart felt good
it was drippin' pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees
felt cold and wet on the grass to me.

Well, outside naked, shiverin' looking blue, from the cold
sunlight that's reflected off the moon.
Baby cum angels fly around you
reminding you we used to be three and not just two.
And that's how the world began.
And that's how the world will end.

Well, a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
water
didn't know then was it a son was it a daughter.
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
around in the water in the oceans in our bodies
and another had been found another ocean on the planet
given that our blood is just like the Atlantic.

And how.

Well, the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
if you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were.
And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
if you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were.
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth.

Your heart felt good
it was drippin' pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees
felt cold and wet on the grass to me.

Well, outside naked, shiverin' looking blue, from the cold
sunlight that's reflected off the moon.
Baby cum angels fly around you
reminding you we used to be three and not just two.
And that's how the world began.
And that's how the world will end.

Well, a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the

And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth

Eye Alaska - Stop Me Now, I'm Not Ready



LYRICS:

If I keep holding back I’m gonna lose this all
Oh no
How could we be part of the cure?
I’m not soft spoken about how I live
And I am everything that you never wanted and could never touch with your hands and I am losing
I have lost.

My one vice is that I always say that I’m ready but I meant it twice
My one vice is that the cure for me seems it’s coming few and far between me and my…

Self-centered, severely egocentric point of view
I’ve grown accustomed to these words “I am not who I am”

Stop me if I do not stand a chance
Stop me if you do not think this is for me and I said.

Matt Costa - Astair




LYRICS:

Astair your glare is killing me
Astair in skies of blue
The signs you wear are making me
So confused

But the mountains and the trees
Are they just what you need
Or are they less than what
You'd expect to see

And if you're leaving well come
Give me reason why I let you down
Before you turn around now now
Before you turn around

Astair you're there and I'm still here
I swear I'm so confused
The signs you wear are making me
Feel like I'm the one to lose

But the canyons and the seas
Are they just what you need
Or are they less than what
You'd expect to see

And if you're leaving well come
Give me reason why I let you down
Before you turn around now, now

Before you turn around

But the mountains and the trees
Are they what you perceive
Or are they less than what
You'd expect to see

And if you're leaving well come
Give me reason why I let you down
Before you turn around now, now
Before you turn around

Fall Out Boy - Saturday




LYRICS:

I'm good to go and
I'm going no where fast
it could be worse i could be taking you there with me (with me)
I'm good to go
even though its like I'm still on my own.
I'm good to go for something golden
though the motions I've been going through have failed
And I'm coasting on potential towards the wall
At a 100 miles an hour

When I say
Two more weeks
My foot is in the door (yeah)
I can't sleep
In the wake of Saturday (Saturday)
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended

Pete and I attacked
And lost the story
Oh we promised them decisions
The mass of youthful innocence
And I read about the afterlife
But I never really lived more than an hour (more than an hour)

When I say
Two more weeks
My foot is in the door (yeah)
I can't sleep
In the wake of Saturday (Saturday)
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended

And I read about the afterlife
But I never really lived
And I read about the afterlife
But I never really lived

Two more weeks
My foot is in the door
Me and Pete
In the wake of Saturday
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
Saturday

John Butler Trio - Used To Get High




LYRICS:

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that i saw on my tv
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me
I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and i'll tell you so

Super size, large fries, big mac, coca cola
Go on man, pick your poison
Speed, weed, ecstacy, LSD
Man, it don't bother me cos we're all on something
Caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol
You know i'm clawing at the walls trying to get my fix
Prozac, ADD tablets, coke, smack
Now you know i am turning tricks cos

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that i saw on my tv
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me
Yeah, that they sold me

Escape, can't wait all trying to get away
From this place man that we're feeling
Can't deal, can't feel what's real
All trying to conceal all this time we're stealing
No doubt, the route you're on
Can't find the clout that you've been needing
'Til then my friend you must contend
With the monster that you're feeding

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that i saw on my tv
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me
I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and i'll tell you so

Got links of the cheney
Getting crazy, getting lazy with their foreign relations
Starting wars, closing doors
Trying to bring about one quicker, man, revelations
Economic rational calling fouls with the workers
Just trying to make it pay
Cost cutting, head butting
Big business do what they like and you do what they say
What's wrong get along, just prolong all the thoughts
You got going on, on the inside
Appease, stand at ease, just try to please
All the apathy that you're trying to hide
How now brown cow
Did we get from this standing place......
And now we're kneeling
'Til then my friend you must contend with the monster that you're feeding

I used to get high for a living
Believing everything that i saw on my tv
I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me
I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and i'll tell you so

I used to get high boy
(Escape, can't wait all trying to get away)
I used to get high
(From this place man that we're feeling)
I used to get high boy
(Can't deal, can't feel what's real)
I used to get high

(All trying to conceal all this time we're stealing)
I used to get high boy
(No doubt, the route you're on
Can't find the clout that you've been needing)
I used to get high
('Til then my friend you must contend with the monster that you're feeding)

I used to get high for a living
Eating all the bullshit food that they sold me
I used to get high for a living
Thinking that my destiny was out of my control
I used to get high for a living
There's lots of different reasons and i'll tell you so

Cassino - Platano




LYRICS:

Ive got these hands and Ive got some oxygen...
I just don't know what to do with it.
Brandy tricked and treats the knees and I fell for her...
Somehow they say this door will sway and
Swing between the universe and me
Well spend our days fast and grey
Trying not to drink the sea.
Were so stout and double faced
Becoming prophets everyday with a gospel
Of how we grooved and all the breath that it removed

The rebellion is over...
The colors are much bolder
And the emperors new clothes sag...

Ill try my best, Ill make it fit...
But the more it grinds the worse it gets...
I watch it shake my hold of it...
The more it runs the more tired I get

Take all of space, the earth and how it tastes
I never loved it anyways
We fought the rain with the heaviest chains
Hoping to drown or float away...
Everything you could have been...
Has been rebuilt with gauze and tin
What I want is just to get on
Never get off
Never move on

And I dont have a single cell to pawn...
To the tricks the devil trips us on

We arm this room and get left in empty tombs
As the invisible break through
Screaming I know how to make this easier...
I can make it easier...
I can make it.
