Bayside - Don't Call Me Peanut

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teZBa73ppsk&feature=related


LYRICS:

Drink up beautiful;
I spiked your cup with angst, and a heart attack.
I've got so much trapped and it's all because of you.
So i figured you might like some back;

And when I see her I'll tell her whats been on my mind,
All these sleepless nights, she'll recite her excuses,
Put my tail between these legs of mine;
Like i do all the time

Can't live my life;
Knowing you'll be in his arms, each time I blink my eyes;
Know what goes on behind my back; every night.
Afraid I'll never leave; afraid I'll never know whats good for me

And when I see her I'll tell her whats been on my mind,
All these sleepless nights, she'll recite her excuses,
Put my tail between these legs of mine;
Like i do all the time

And now you say that; you say you love me.
Well i may have your heart, he has your body
And now you swear that; you're being honest,
But you're not honest, you never could be

And when I see her I'll tell her whats been on my mind,
All these sleepless nights, she'll recite her excuses,
Put my tail between these legs of mine;
Like i do all the time

Valencia – The Closest I Am To Living Life On The Edge




LYRICS:

Let's build a rocket to the moon
Just you and I
We could start a whole new world up there
Leave our past behind
Behind

Sometimes I can’t believe my eyes
I want to stare up
And get lost in the city lights
Because I’ve had enough and this is the end
And now I understand
That a heart breaks it does not bend

Someone please help me out
I never meant to take this so far
Now I’ve fallen way too hard
Take a long step back to
To The days when I was younger
Decisions never mattered all this much

It’s an emptied handed promise
From my heart to my conscious
That says one day I will make this count
(The best that I know how)

The closest that I am to living life on the edge
Is packing all my bags, and heading off with my best friends

Someone please help me out
I never meant to take this so far
Now I’ve fallen way too hard
Take a long step back
To The days when I was younger
Decisions never mattered all this much

So let it all go
You have no worries now
(I’ve made my decision)
With the sun in your face you’re never beneath the clouds
(I’m lifting)
And all the along the way I found you wishing on those clouds to move away
Grab my hand
Let's kiss the sun goodbye

I know the way to go it’s never as easy as it may seem
The takeoffs the landings, our rockets transcending
Ordinary, what’s ordinary?
(To the moon)

The takeoffs the landings, our rockets transcending
Ordinary, what’s ordinary?
(To the moon)

Balance and Composure - Show Your Face





LYRICS:

Well I've been running away from you for the past couple years,
spent my days down by the river,
and hoped to see your face.
And it's been hard to speak up when no one is listening to me,
compared to you I am so small, so small.

Your words cannot tell me that my neighbor is burning.
For that I can't believe. So tell me, am I burning too?

The sky's your window, but where am I hiding?
I've been waiting.

It's always on my troubled mind. [x4]

How long will it take for you to fall to the ground?
'Cause I've been waiting here for years,
and my feet are cold, and my back is sore.
How long will it take for you to to realize that you are nothing?
'Cause I've been watching closely, and you just wouldn't show your face.

I was never about this, never about this love.[x4]

It goes on until I'm numb.[x2]

The sky's your window, but where am I hiding?
I've been waiting.

Colbie Caillat - The Little Things






LYRICS:

The little things, you do to me are
taking me over, i wanna show ya
everything inside of me
like a nervous heart that, is crazy beating
my feet are stuck here, against the pavement
i wanna break free, i wanna make it
closer to your eyes, get your attention
before you pass me by

So back up back up take another chance
Don’t you mess up mess up I don’t wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this aint just a thing that you
Give up give up don’t you say that I’d be
Better off better off, sleepin by myself and wonderin
If im better off better off, with out you boy

So don't just leave me hanging on

And every time, you notice me by
holdin me closely, and sayin sweet things
i don't believe, that it could be
you speekin your mind and, sayin the real thing
my feet have broke free, and i am leavin
i'm not gonna stand here, feelin lonely but
i wont forget you, and i won't think this
was just a waste of time

So back up back up take another chance
Don’t you mess up mess up I don’t wanna lose you
Wake up wake up this aint just a thing that you
Give up give up don’t you say that I’d be
Better off better off, sleepin by myself and wonderin
If im better off better off, with out you boy

But don't just leave me hangin on............

Daphne Loves Derby - Pollen and Salt




LYRICS:

You've left me with such a silent world,
Where evenings are calm, but I'm restless
And my breath has become as thin as the wind.

Not even the mighty sky could fill the space you left behind
Not even when it rains.
No, nothing takes your place
Your emptiness too great to fill.

I have been holding my breath,
For too many nights in a row,
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams,
With reds and blues and greens.
Yea you're painting daffodils by the sea,
Without me.

Today in a breeze I sensed your perfume
But you were nowhere near.
And in reverie,
I felt you holding me.
And even in my dreams I shake from the fear
That you've been swept away.
By the rhythm of the waves I whisper in your ears.

I have been holding my breath,
For too many nights in a row,
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams,
With reds and blues and greens.
Yea you're painting daffodils by the sea,
Without me.

I would give away
My sweetest memories,
If I could just be with you again.
Be with you again.

I have been holding my breath,
For too many nights in a row,
And somewhere on coastlines unknown to me
You paint your dreams,
With reds and blues and greens.
Yea you're painting daffodils growing by the sea,
Without me.

Last night I dreamt you were with me,
Finally I could breathe.

Socratic - Spread the Rumors







LYRICS:

Spread the rumors Julia.
He's going out of his mind.
Grandmas going blind.
It hurts them both to see.
Tears are cures for sore eyes that stare at clouds all their lives.
I traded rainchecks to see a sunny day.
Leave me and mother alone.
Our half family in our two family home.
Not much is all we've known.
A little less is all we own.
We are just little thread.
Space, the room.
Earth, the bed.
A woman's sewing us for the infant universe.
She wants no more thoughts and no more drugs.
Money or religion.
Shes tired of friends and their coincidences.
This happens when the kinds doesn't get enough sleep.
He knows what wrong but can't help what is happening.

A Loss For Words – Hot Hand In A Dice Game



LYRICS:

Tonight I'll leave all my fears behind, just one night
before they consume me
this distance is killing me but willingly I would be here for you

As I breathe in you burn my lungs
as you fell so fast from these arms that once held so tight to you
but now the tables have turned
you're the cause of this cancer

These eyes are polished
Every night a clear coat of gloss to keep them bright
anything to keep this all behind
I'm standing at the edge of everything
That I can't escape and its finally breaking me down

As I breathe in you burn my lungs
as you fell so fast from these arms that once held so tight to you
but now the tables have turned
you're the cause of this cancer

We get what we give, it all comes back around
but now is not the time but now is not the time

As I breathe in you burn my lungs
as you fell so fast from these arms that once held so tight to you
but now the tables have turned
you're the cause of this cancer

The Narrative - Eyes Closed





LYRICS:

the clouds hold
a storm over this road...
you're dreaming...
or at least you've got your eyes closed
and this dormant love you've built inside your stubborn ways,
well its begging now, for air...
...of the silent breath of change...
as these waves crash against the highway cliffs...
i'm so scared they'll flood me where i sit...
well the roads, they change to waterways...
they never carry home...
you pull back and you angle towards the window...
now the rain is crashing down----
and oh my god, you're beautiful...
and i'm so unsighted, still i pray you'll hold back your escape....
yeah we still got time
and in my mind these bends could be steered straight...
as these waves crash against the highway cliffs,
i'm so scared they'll flood me where i sit...
well the roads, they change to waterways...
they never carry home
well, i'm sorry for the things i had to say...
and i'm sorry i pushed your hand away
from the radio...
i pushed your hand away
from the radio...
i should have just let it go...

Parachute - Words Meet Heartbeats




LYRICS:

Well I'd go house to house and knock on every door
I'd take down all the walls and tear up every floor
Just to figure out, oh what we're fighting for
And all I can do is sit and let the air speak for you

Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, come on
You know it's not even fair and a first-round knockdown
Baby, the floor, you know I'm already there
And the sun sets high and that moon is low
Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, you'll know

Well there's silence now, there's nothing more to gain
And it isn't right if I can't run away
Because it kills the mood when there's nothing left to say
And all I can do is sit and let the air speak for you

Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, come on
You know it's not even fair and a first-round knockdown
Baby, the floor, you know I'm already there

And the sun sets high and that moon is low
Cause when words meet heartbeats

And I'm not too tired,
I'm not too tired to know what you're doing
And I'm not too tired, I'm not too tired to see
And I'm not too tired,
I'm not too tired to know what you're doing with me

Cause when words meet heartbeats, baby, come on
You know it's not even fair and a first-round knockdown
Baby, the floor, you know I'm already there
And the sun sets high and that moon is low
Cause when words meet heartbeats, and words meet heartbeats,
When words meet heartbeats, baby, you'll know

Counting Crows - Long December




LYRICS:

A long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember the last thing that you said as you were leaving
Oh the days go by so fast

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven
I wish you would
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl

And it's one more day up in the canyons
And it's one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California
I think you should
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after 2 a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass

And it's one more day up in the canyon
And it's one more night in Hollywood
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean
I guess I should
(Na na na, etc. yeah)

Counting Crows - Raining in Baltimore




LYRICS:

This circus is falling down on its knees
The big top is crumbling down
It's raining in Baltimore fifty miles east
Where you should be, no one's around
I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I need a big love
I need a phone call
These train conversations are passing me by
And I don't have nothing to say
You get what you pay for
But I just had no intention of living this way
I need a phone call
I need a plane ride
I need a sunburn
I need a raincoat
And I get no answers
And I don't get no change
It's raining in Baltimore, baby
But everything else is the same
There's things I remember and things I forget
I miss you I guess that I should
Three thousand five hundred miles away
But what would you change if you could?
I need a phone call Maybe I should buy a new car
I can always hear a freight train Baby, if I listen real hard
And I wish, I wish it was a small world
Because I'm lonely for the big towns
I'd like to hear a little guitar
I guess it's time to put the top down
I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I really need a raincoat
I really really need a rain coat
I really really really need a rain coat
I really need a raincoat

Freelance Whales - Broken Horse




LYRICS:

October's got those orange eyes
But somehow I still lost sight
When you lifted the lid off of my pumpkin head
And kissed me goodnight

She could be a thorn in my side
We never quite broke that horse
She slept in the cul-de-sac rye
Seven miles from my front porch

Bundle up and come with me now
Down the road where to the burned down barn
We could make a blanket of coats
And breathe our souls into the neighbor's front lawn

But, oh god, that look in your eye
Trouble that does not search words
It sprung from the biblical vine and
Awaiting to return to the dirt

The stitches in your winter clothes
Your cello bows
We stole your hair to make them
We're sorry for the iron shoes
We nailed to you
And stuck you in the rain
And then you sprinted away
Sprinted away to where I don't know
God's moving in your bloodstream
Where the cross beats aren't so slow

You swept all the red from my cheeks
I didn't hear you come back inside
I light up the gas in the den
And stand there in the thin winter light
But, oh god, that curve in your spine
A question mark, a doctor's sigh
Was framed by the windowsill
And you saw something I did not in that night
You saw something I did not in that night

The stitches in your winter clothes
Your cello bows
We stole your hair to make them
We're sorry for the iron shoes
We nailed to you
And stuck you in the rain
And then you sprinted away
Sprinted away to where I don't know
God's moving in your bloodstream
Where the cross beats aren't so slow

God's moving in your bloodstream
Where the cross beats aren't so slow... (x 5)

Smith Point - Escape



LYRICS:

Taking on the day
Waiting to escape
The thoughts
That keep me here today
Cutting back the time
Waiting for your light
To show
And lead me through the day

And I wonder
Will you be there too?
With all the time
I thought of you
Cause I need you more
I need you more than that

Too late, my friend
To take it all today
And to relate on my time
You could say that
I would hope to turn back to your way
Believing where I'd run
Today

Taking back the day
Waiting to escape
The ones
Who take it all away
Cutting back through time
Waiting for your line
To call
And take me far away

Taking on the day
Waiting to escape
And leave it all today
Turning back the time
Waiting for the sign
To fall
And take me on my way

mewithoutYou - In A Sweater Poorly Knit




LYRICS:

In a sweater poorly knit, and an unsuspecting smile
Little Moses drifts downstream in the Nile
A fumbling reply -- an awkward, rigid laugh
I'm carried helpless by my floating basket raft

Your flavor in my mind swings back and forth between sweeter than any wine, and bitter as mustard greens
Light and dark as honeydew and pumpernickle bread

The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

As you plow some other field and try and forget my name, see what harvest yields, and, supposing I'd do the same
I planted rows of peas, but by the first week of july -- they should have come up to my knees but they were maybe ankle high

Take the fingers from your flute to weave your colored yarns, and boil down your fruit to preserves in mason jars

But now books are overdue and the goats are underfed... the trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

You're a door-without-a-key, a field-without-a-fence
You made a holy fool of me, and I've thanked you ever since
If she comes circling back, we'll end where we'd begun
Like two pennies on the train track the train crushed into one

But if I'm a crown without a king, if I'm a broken, open seed
If I come without a thing, I come with all I need
No boat out in the blue, no place to rest your head
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

I
do
not
exist
only
YOU
exist
