Fallin' Down

Do you know, where you want to go?
I ain't got time for you now
Do you think, that I'll ever be?

'Cause all I ever wanted's so far gone
And if I had my chance, I'd go along

You're making me fall down,
I'm fallin' down again
I wish you could fall down,
Can you catch me darling?

Do you see, what you do to me?
You ain't got time for it now
Do you think, that I'll ever be?

'Cause all I ever wanted's so far gone
And if I had my chance, I'd go along

You're making me fall down
I'm falling down again
I wish you could fall down
Can you catch me darling?

'Cause all I ever wanted's so far gone
And if I had my chance, I'd go along

You're making me fall down
I'm falling down again
I wish you could fall down
Can you catch me darling?

Lucky Star

If I could walk a straight mile
And write it down in shorthand I could show you
If you want me to
And if I had an hourglass
I'd save the grains of time I spent with you
That's what I'd do


But I remember
You always said it could be great
And I knew it could be


Well there's a way you look at things
That no one needs to know but you
And you shared them with me
Like every time the leaves would fall
You promised me that they'd be back again
And I believed in you


You always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
Now it seems that I've gone too far


As bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star
Bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star


Written down in hard bound books
The way things used to be they ain't for me
I'd swear they're all for you
Ri said sugar, gram said shoot
Her mom said shit I don't know what she'll do
As if it's up to you


But I remember
You always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
Now it seems that you've gone too far


As bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star
Bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star


Your lucky star will burn you
Your lucky star can turn you 'round
Your lucky star will burn out
Your lucky star can turn you 'round

Cuz You're Gone

You whispered in my mouth
And I spit you words right back
How good do you think I'll look
When the words start to break and crack

You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
No I don't know how

'Cause you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back

You held your hand so close
And I just can't push you away
I wished you could be my girl
But you're stuck in your a grown-up world

You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
No I don't know how

'Cause you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back

You beat your head upon your wall
You disconnect yourself from it all
'Cause you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how
And I don't know how

'Cause you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back
Yeah you're gone, and I wish you'd come back

Don't Worry

I called you up all night til mornin'
Left my house by noon today, and I saw you standing there
No one spoke, but we both listened
Heard every word you didn't say

And the sun shines all around us
Smells like summer's on the way, and I saw you standing there
Tell the story of a lifetime
Tomorrow brings a brand new day

Don't worry 'bout today, and the words that you said
Don't worry 'bout today, shake the world from your head
Least for a while

You see, the day keeps getting longer
But my nights seem longer still, and my TV's off the air
Watching repeats on my ceiling
Another hour left to kill

Don't worry 'bout today, and the words that you said
Don't worry 'bout today, shake the world from your head
Least for a while

Girl Right Next To Me

You changed my face, I think I like it better now
It doesn't matter anyhow, 'cause that's the way it is
You said hello, where the hell you been?
I said I feel like I've been off to war, and I may never be the same again

I made my bed, but now I can't sleep at night
I'm tossin and turnin you know, you know it ain't right
I'd love to beg, see, but I'm just too proud
And I don't even know what to say, so I'm thinking out loud

And when you dream 17
I ain't there, so I don't care
'Cause in all my dreams, I'm 23
And she's the girl right next to me
See that girl right next to me

I lie in my bed, you're running through my head
Going over and over and over, the things that you said
I'm caught in the trap, I'll run like hell right back to you
'Cause I'm sober with you and you know it beats drinking alone

And when you dream 17
I ain't there, so I don't care
'Cause in all my dreams, I'm 23
And she's the girl right next to me
See that girl right next to me

And when you dream 17
I ain't there, so I don't care
'Cause in all my dreams, I'm 23
And she's the girl right next to me
See that girl right next to me

And when you dream 17
I ain't there, so I don't care
'Cause in all my dreams, I'm 23
And she's the girl right next to me
See that girl right next to me
She's the girl right next to me
See that girl right next to me

Domino

If you never had it then
You don't know how bad it is
There is nothing like it, well
Needless talk then, I can tell

Here comes the day, I sit and wait
Always, always something
(Dominoes are falling still)
The bills keep coming, the car ain't running
Now I'm coming home again
(As I know they always will)
Another day, oh, the mailman's on his way
Just sit and wait
(Dominoes a test of will)
Always pondering my fate too late
And then the day goes
(Dominoes)


I borrowed from you yesterday
Little fuss that you have made
No one minds I can tell
Seems I've hit the ones you shall, but

Here comes the day, I sit and wait
Always, always something
(Dominoes are falling still)
The bills keep coming, the car ain't running
Now I'm coming home again
(As I know they always will)
Another day, the mailman's on his way
Just sit and wait
(Dominoes a test of will)
Always pondering my fate too late
And then the day goes
(Dominoes)


Dominoes are falling still (Oh every day…)
As I know they always will (I sit and wait)
Dominoes a test of will (It's while I'm pondering my fate too late)
Dominoes (And then the day goes)

We Are The Normal

It's a beautiful day I heard everybody say
The sun shines down for all of us
Just the same you know I like the rain
That ain't so obvious

It's a beautiful sight I guess everybody's right
This day belongs to all of us
Even still I like with a chill
That ain't so obvious

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

It's a beautiful life and I've got it in my sights
And that ain't for all of us
It's a beautiful sound
When my life comes crashin down
That ain't so obvious
It's a beautiful sin and I'm doin' it again
And that ain't for all of us
It's a beautiful life and I've got it in my sights
Ain't that so obvious

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

There's no reason why...

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

String of Lies

I've got no politics, no influential friend or two
I've got ideas, but it's nothing I picked up at school
I might be running, but I'm never running back to you

And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie

I had to wait so long that weeks and months that passed me by
You've got no power and my situation don't apply
You ask me how I am, I lie and say I'm doing fine

And with your sugar-sweetend alibi, there was a truth I never knew
And all the attitude you gave me, it's coming back to you

String of lies, it's always compromise with you
String of lies, you know there's nothing better to do
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you

And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie

String of lies, we always compromise for you
String of lies, you know there's nothing better to do
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you
String of lies, we always compromise for you

And here's a letter from the real world

Another Second Time Around

Happy, smilin', cryin' outburst to my past
I guess those stormy gray skies simply couldn't last
And now I find myself a-tugging at your dress
The fun of holding you down, or seein' you frown, it's never gonna pass

Somewhere there's a place a soul can never go
Gray like stormy skies I hoped you didn't know
All our postcards full of things I won't forget
And now it's coming down, that laughing clown is all I ever get

Another second time around I've been runnin' from ya
Another second time around
Another second, one more second time I waited for ya
Another second time around

Couldn't help myself
I felt like everything was gonna pass
It was an awkward time
I hoped it wouldn't, hoped it couldn't last

And I didn't know exactly what to say
About the things you saw me do my evil way
And I know you're lyin', cryin' in your bed
Well I'm all tired out, so wired now, it's ringing in my head

Another second time around I've been runnin' from ya
Another second time around
Another second, one more second time I waited for ya
Another second time around
Another second time around
Another second time around

Stop the World

You need someone to hold you
You need somethin' that you ain't been getting
Yeah, I could be the one
To tell you what to do, but it don't mean nothing
And you're holding on forever
But that something just ain't true

I'm just like you
And I know
It's what I'd do
Here I go

'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't
'Cause it ain't enough

You had another bad day
You let me know that you just can't take it
I've given up on you
You live in truth and I know I can't fake it

'Cause the stars you see are on a dirty sidewalk
And they ain't polished and new

If they don't come true
And I know, it's what I'd do
Here I go

'Cause I couldn't stop the world, 'cause I loved you
I couldn't stop the world, and I don't want to
I couldn't stop the world, and I won't
'Cause it ain't enough

I'm not too young for the world
I'm not too young for the world
And I can't change for the world
'Cause I don't care for the world
I don't need to stop the world
It don't make sense, the world

Already There

I look outside my window
Everything was blanketed in white
The neighbors pushing cars out
From snow that fell on us last night
Started thinking 'bout
The things we used to do when we were young
Back when things were simple
And getting up was fun

I couldn't care, 'cause I'm already there
I'm already there, and I'm ready there

Turn around and face the clock
I'd sit and watch, as time went hoppin' by
I'm still growing up
My friends are growing old before my eyes
Count the stars above
Wonder when the heavens will subside
Knowing our two worlds
Will someday just collide

I couldn't care, 'cause I'm already there.
I'm already there, and I'm ready there

Just a boy who's young at heart
His smile was a bit like yours today
Had a wife, a kid, some strife
Never had to go astray
Happiness evolved
Life was in full swing
At 17, all the things he wanted
Were things he'd never seen

It don't seem fair, cuz I'm already there
I'm already there, and I'm ready there

On The Lie

He burnt down the house one night
He had a loaded six-pack gun
He said that Jesus Christ was just like a cop
You know, you never know when they'll come
She said every day above ground
Was another dream come true
He said I'd hang and swap clichés all night
But I'm not in love with you

And I never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back

On the lie
On the lie
On the lie
On the lie

He said, man, you want to be Elvis
I said I ain't dying face down
He said you've got to die facing up in the world
'Cause there's too many holes around
He asked what was wrong with me
He said I looked like a Hollywood girl
I said that Hollywood can fall into the ocean, man
'Cause it's the ugliest place in the whole wide world

And I never got serious
'Til everything went black
And I ain't so curious
That I'm ever going back

On the lie
On the lie
On the lie
On the lie

On the lie, he was
On the lie
On the lie, she was
On the lie
On the lie, he was
On the lie
It's all been a stinkin' lie

Close Your Eyes

I wish I had a saxophone
I'd play the blues 'til you came home
With a little sadness in your eye

Now that all my time was spent
In the walk that heaven sent
Thinking 'bout all the nights you cried

Had a certain passion
And I had surly dreams
A look of vicious actions

Don't close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Oh don't close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me

I wish I had a camera lens
To film the things my mind had said
Before they reached my mouth and got all bad

Looking at the skies of blue
All day long I think of you
Even after all the shit we've been through

Had a certain passion
And I had surly dreams
A look of vicious actions

Don't close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Please don't close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Oh don't close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Close your eyes to me
Don't close your eyes to me
Eyes to me

So Far Away

Why do you stare me down?
Am I wrong?
Should I turn and kiss the ground?
And I never felt that way
I ain't the one and you know I don't come from such a place

And I didn't get those things
Things that you can't grow
You say that it's all my fault
And I don't need to know

Tell me something I don't know
And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me
You said that it's all been said before
Now I find that there's something I don't know

And I hate your attitude
I ain't scared at all
'Cause it don't matter what you do
And I'll turn around to see the truth
You're tearing it down, yeah, you're bringing it down
And it's all on you

And I didn't get those things
Things that you can't grow
You say that it's all my fault
And I don't need to know

Tell me something I don't know
And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me
You said that it's all been said before
Now I find that there's something I don't know

And I know
I don't know
(Rock and roll)
And I say that
If you break enough glass and there's no one to hear
And your heart's full of hate
'Cause your mind's full of fear
Let it go

So far away
So far away
So far away
Oh so far away
So far away
So far away
