Fall Out Boy - XO




LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Taking Back Sunday - Your Own Disaster






LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

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

Death Cab for Cutie - What Sarah Said






LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

Bethany Joy Lenz - Leaving Town Alive






LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Go Radio - Forever My Father




LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Elliott Smith - Angeles




LYRICS:

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

Saves the Day - Freakish




LYRICS:

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

Ron Pope - I Believe



LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Flyleaf - Fully Alive




LYRICS:

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

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

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


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

[Instrumental 12 measures, 4 counts each]

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

June - I'd Lose Myself



LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dashboard Confessional - Where There's Gold




LYRICS:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Narrative - Fade






LYRICS:

We probably shouldn't talk,
cuz talking leads to thinking and
eyes wide open blank in the dark.

We probably shouldn't think,
cuz thinking leads to questioning and
circles you right back to the start

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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