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

Sheryl Crow - I Shall Believe






LYRICS:

Come to me now
And lay your hands over me
Even if it's a lie
Say it will be alright
And I shall believe
I'm broken in two
And I know you're on to me
That I only come home
When I'm so all alone
But I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe
And I shall believe

Open the door
And show me your face tonight
I know it's true
No one heals me like you
And you hold the key

Never again
would I turn away from you
I'm so heavy tonight
But your love is alright
And I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way
You think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right
It all comes down on me
Please say honestly
You won't give up on me
And I shall believe
I shall believe
And I shall believe

Valencia - The Space Between





LYRICS:

There's something strange going on in my head
That says if I were to get in a car right now
North Carolina is where I would end
And to your doorstep I would be bound.
To whisper the words that I've always wanted to say,
And watch as the sun rips this blue sky away
Cause the colors are always changing
So stare up through the clouds
And at least you know
you're always looking up

So Casey can you remember
sitting by my side
On the bank of the Delaware River
and talking about life

Don't forget about the blue skies, sunrise, and all the space between
It's amazing how a girl like you can affect a guy like me
All the pictures, memories and all the times we had
Do you think that some things are better left unsaid?

We'd stay inside just to watch the time go by
and sleep the whole day till the night
with everything you said
I'm sure you've got some place that you'd probably rather be
I hope you're singing this song
and thinking about me
cause Carolina was waiting for you
it's what you always wanted

Don't forget about the blue skies, sunrise, and all the space between
It's amazing how a girl like you could affect a guy like me
With the pictures, memories and all the times we had
Do you think that some things are better left unsaid?

And we run away
Cause the sky looks different when you're in another state
It's everything I've always wanted
And everything I've worked so hard for

Is it in me
To put the bottle down?
Is it in me?

The Dangerous Summer - Northern Lights



I figured out the chords by listening to this video (Thanks sometimesjamiee)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7QWyPSm7VI

LYRICS:

It's two o'clock and I was sleeping,
but I'm not feeling great.
I took some pills to help my thinking,
but now I'm thinking worse.
Well I was hoping that I could see you;
if that's not too absurd.
Am I in love or am I dreaming?

'Cause I'm not sensibly just taken by your words; for once I found a cure.
I'm sick of staying up late, because you're not here, and I'm not there.
No, I'm not afraid to watch you change me,
I'm not afraid to watch you change me.

You need to know what you're into;
I'll tell you I'm a god damn piece of work.
So I'll just sit here until you enter my arms
'Cause that's the simpleness of where I lay my head.
I'm a wreck when I'm alone, I'm the boy who lost his home

And I'm sensibly just taken by your words; for once I found a cure.
I'm sick of staying up late, 'cause you're not here, and I'm not there.
No, I'm not afraid to watch you change me.
I'm not afraid to watch you change me anymore.

I took the key bridge north to your parents house again.
I saw my share of lights from the sky outside the city.
I brought you things I loved just to show you that I cared.
I found a place to lay inside of the warmth.
And that's the way that I spent these last few days of writing all these songs.
I swear to god that I love you, 'cause I can't explain this.

I'm sensibly just taken by your words; for once I found a cure.
I'm sick of staying up late, because you're not here, and I'm not there.
No, I'm not afraid to watch you change me,
I'm not afraid to watch you change me anymore.

I'm taken by your words; for once I found a cure.
I'm sick of staying up late, because you're not here, and I'm not there.
No, I'm not afraid to watch you change me,
I'm not afraid to watch you change me anymore.

Wakey!Wakey! - Light Outside






LYRICS:

I know you wanna stay in bed
But it's light outside
It's light outside
So you know, I'm gonna stay right here
You saved my life once
You saved my life

And I
Will try
To get you up
Cause it's beautiful outside
And we'll fall
But we'll try
We'll do our best
And I'll love you all the while
Because you saved my life once...

I know you wanna rest your head
And just forget the night
Forget the night
You know I'm gonna stay right here
I'll sit by your side
Sit by your side

And I
I'll try
To get you up
It's beautiful outside
We'll fall
But we'll try
We'll do our best
And I'll love you all the while
You saved my life once...

I think I always knew you would be the greatest

Pompeii - Nothing Happens For A Reason



LYRICS:

I was living long before you were.
I live to help you, and still your own way you prefer.
You shrug your shoulders, I retreat to mine.
Open the paper, and as you read me line by line.

Overreact to nothing, because nothing sinks in.
A dam of cheap distractions to hold your grief in.
Though pools of guilt will stagnate,
they will never reach the brim.
Overreact to nothing, because nothing's sinking in.

If you can hear me, nod or give a sign.
I had the last word, can I redo it one more time?
I'll keep my distance, I'll keep my sanity.
I'll keep my distance, because you'll never see me...

Overreact to nothing, because nothing sinks in.
A dam of cheap distractions to hold your grief in.
And pools of guilt will stagnate,
but will never reach the brim.
Overreact to nothing, because nothing's sinking in.

John Mayer - Who Says




LYRICS:

Who says I can’t get stoned?
Turn off the lights and the telephone
Me in my house alone
Who says I can’t get stoned?

Who says I can’t be free?
From all of the things that I used to be
Re-write my history
Who says I can’t be free?

It’s been a long night in New York City
It’s been a long night in Baton Rouge
I don’t remember you looking any better
Then again I don’t remember you

Who says I can’t get stoned?
Call up a girl that I used to know
Fake love for an hour or so
Who says I can’t get stoned?

Who says I can’t take time?
Meet all the girls on the county line
Wait on fate to send a sign
Who says I can’t take time?

It’s been a long night in New York City
It’s been a long night in Austin too
I don’t remember you looking any better
Well then again I don’t remember you

Who says I can’t get stoned?
Plan a trip to Japan alone
Doesn’t matter if I even go
Who says I can’t get stoned?

It’s been a long night in New York City
It’s been a long time since 22
I don’t remember you looking any better
Then again I don’t remember,
don't remember you
