Understatement
I'm sick of smiling
And so is my jaw
Can't you see my front is crumbling down?
I'm sick of being someone I'm not
Please get me out of this slump
I'm sick of clapping
When I know I can do it better for myself
I'm sick of waiting
Sick of all these words that will never matter

I wire these nerves together
Hoping for a chance to think on time
And I'm tracing over your letter
To see if your intentions are as good as mine

But you're getting worse
I swear it
It's hard to prove you're an understatement
You're getting worse and I know
That you'll be calling me again

I'm done with everything
That had to do with you
Don't worry your pictures are already burned
I'm done with new friends
Don't sell yourself short
You'll lose it in the end

I can't help how I feelback to top
My Friends Over You
I'm drunk off your kiss
For another night in a row
This is becoming too routine for me
But I didn't mean to lead you on
And it's alright to pretend that we still talk
It's just for show isn't it
It's my fault that it fell apart

Just maybe you need this
And I didn't mean to lead you on

You were everything I wanted
But I just can't finish what I started
There's no room left here on my back
It was damaged long ago
Though you swear that you are true
I'd still pick my friends over you

Please tell me everything
That you think that I should know
About all the plans you made
When I was no where to be found
And it's all right to forget that we still talk
It's just for fun isn't it
It's my fault that it fell apartback to top
Sonny
I'm sorry
I heard about the bad news today
a crowd of people around you
telling you it's ok
and everything happens for a reason

when you lose a part of yourself to somebody you know
it takes a lot to let go
every breath that you remember
pictures fade away, but memory's forever

an empty chair at all the tables
and I'll be seeing you when all my days boil down
but its better where you're going anyway

I'm sorry
I heard about the bad news today
it's really hard to get through
tough times and long days
but it really just depends on the season

when you lose a part of yourself to somebody you know
it takes a lot to let go
every breath that you remember
pictures fade away, but memory's forever

an empty chair at all the tables
and I'll be seeing you when all my days boil down
for now we'll say good bye
we know it's not the last time
I lost the best part of my day
but its better where you're going anyway

an empty chair at all the tables
and I'll be seeing you when all my days boil down
for now we'll say good bye
we know it's not the last time
I lost the best part of my day
this is the last thing
i will remember
its better where you're going anywayback to top
Something I Call Personality
Before you jump down my throat
I'd like to present you with
Something I call personality
Word travels fast when you're on the road
I'd like to think what I have is real

Sort this out on your own time
You ought to sort this out on your own time

Before you jump to conclusions
About all the friends I have
Just remember they were born that way
Word travels fast when her name's involved
i'd like to think what I have is real

sort this out on your own time
go on and sort this out on your own time

no matter how happy you are
you'll always want more
no matter how stupid I get
you'll always want moreback to top
It's Been a Summer
I'm cracked from my head down to my spine
ready to self destruct
at any time
and I'm trying to convince myself that the way I'm feeling is all I have
it could take a lifetime
to realize that you're alright

(but she said)
I'd know when you would come back
it's been a summer
it's burning up in here
even though the bed is cold on your side
I'd rather die than spend this night here without you
(without you)

I would try to fix these flaws of mine
if I could just see you (if I could just see you)
for one more time
and I'm trying to convince myself that the way I'm felling is all I have
I don't believe in sure things
there's pain in what the truth brings

I'll be the first one to know
if it's wrong for me to just let it go
I'll be the laughing stock of all time
person most likely to find
deciding if it's fate that made you avoid me 'til this dayback to top
Forget My Name
tell all my friends I'm dead
I'm leaving you, this time its for good
tell all my friends that I'm dead
it won't be long before you forget my name

can you tell
that I'm losing myself
I think I'm trying too hard to
let it show
to let you know
don't trace your footsteps back to me

I've been gone for a long time
waiting on the sidelines
hoping for a chance to play
well I thought I would never leave anything behind
I also never thought I'd say

tell all my friends I'm dead
I'm leaving you, this time its for good
tell all my friends that I'm dead
it won't be long before you forget my name

can you tell
that I don't know myself
I need someone to remind me
to let it go
please let me know
don't trace your footsteps back to me

cause I've been gone for a long time
waiting on the sidelines
hoping for a chance to play
well I thought I would never leave anything behind
I also never thought I'd say

tell all my friends I'm dead
I'm leaving you, this time its for good
tell all my friends that I'm dead
it won't be long before you forget my name

and if I had the chance
to do it all again
I wouldn't expect anything less
and if I had the chance
to do it all again
I wouldn't expect
I wouldn't expect anything less

tell all my friends I'm dead
I'm leaving you, this time its for good
tell all my friends that I'm dead
it won't be long before you forget my name

forget my nameback to top
Never Give Up
Living with me
I don't think it would be so bad
This is the first time this year
That I'm not going to make you mad
I'm tired of my conscious
Always telling me to stop sleeping in
But I can't waste a second
On dreams that will never begin

Everyone has a head upon their shoulders
We're losing our pride as we all get older
Everyone has to pick on their saviors
You might not get it right
Or you might realize that its too late

Don't back down
I'm over the past can't you see
Don't back down
I don't really care about before
Before you met me

Is it cool if I see you tonight
There's a thousand questions I want to ask you
If you think that its alright

Everyone has a head upon their shoulders
We're losing our pride as we all get older
Everyone has to pick on their saviors
You might not get it right
Or you might realize that its too late

Don't back down
I'm over the past can't you see
Don't back down
I don't really care about before
Before you met me

So don't take anything for granted
Stand outside in the rain
An excuse you know I planned it
Every ending ends up the same

Don't back down
I'm over the past can't you see
Don't back down
I don't really care about before
Before you met meback to top
The Great Houdini
All dressed up and nowhere to go
I think I'm taking this trip alone
Thirty seconds till I pass
The questions you will never ask
Your regrets will haunt you
You know I never had to

But I'm saving myself from you

Did you notice anything?
The changes made
Now it's safe to say
You will never change your ways

I went to your house
But you weren't home
I'm sure you conveniently shut off your phone
I don't think that I'll ever be
The person that you want of me
When all that I can think about
It's you I have to figure out

But I'm saving myself from you

Did you notice anything
The changes made
Now it's safe to say
You will never change your ways
You would give up anything
To prove your point
There's nothing left to say
You will never change your ways

I'm saving myself from you
Yeah I'm saving myself from you

All dressed up and nowhere to go
I think I'm taking this trip alone

Did you notice anything?
The changes made
Now it's safe to say
You will never change your ways
You would give up anything
To prove your point
There's nothing left to say
You will never change your waysback to top
Singled Out
I figured all the years we shared were proof enough
To extend my hand and help you
I know that getting started can be rough
Enthused smile you seemed grateful
I felt real good about myself
That's until the day you showed me
You don't need anybody else

Why'd you have to go
And make me say these things about you
Why'd you have to turn around after all
That we've been through

I figured all the memories were proof enough
To maybe open your eyes
From the people you think hold your trust
Do you ever smile and find it shameful
Cause you don't know who you are
I am glad you never told me
You don't need anybody else

Why'd you have to go
And make me say these things about you
Why'd you have to turn around after all
That we've been through

What will you do
When there's no one to fall back on
I won't be there
I've learned my lesson
What will you do when there's no friends to fall back on
Because they've all been stepped on

Why'd you have to go
And make me say these things about you
Why'd you have to turn around after all
That we've been throughback to top
Belated
I've never felt so bad in my entire life
But this time I did it to myself
What do you expect from me
I did it
So what do you expect from me

Let go of my hand
Is it time to go
I'm not ready to turn my back on you yet
I'm not going to let you down
Let you down

September came so quickly
I wasn't prepared
I didn't mean to miss your birthday
What do you expect from me
I did it
So what do you expect from me

Why dont you let go of my hand
Is it time to go
I'm not ready to turn my back on you yet
I'm not going to let you down

Bridges will fall from under us
But we are strong
We'll get through this
The earth will open up
And try to pull us in
But we'll get through this
Get through this

So why don't you
Let go of my hand
Is it time to go
I'm not ready to turn my back on you yet
I'm not going to let you downback to top
The Story So Far
I can't remember the time or place
Or what you were wearing
It's unclear about how we met
All I know is it was the best conversation that I've ever had
To this day I've never found someone
With eyes as wide as yours
I've been searching up and down this coast
Overlooking what I need the most

Did you notice I was afraid?
I thought I'd run out of things to say
Two more hours until today burns this away
And it starts all over again

The sky will never look the same again
'Til you show me how it could be
The sky will never look the same again
'Til you show me how it could be

And everything else is irrelevant
To the story so far
A coincidence that you looked like her from afar
Is it true that you like to sleep alone
Or is it what you just tell everyone

Did you notice I was afraid
I thought I'd run out of things to say
Two more hours until today burns this away
And it starts all over again

The sky will never look the same again
'Til you show me how it could be
The sky will never look the same again
'Til you show me how it could be

And when the world turns over
I'll keep my ears to the wall
And when the world turns over
I'll keep my feet straight on the ground

Did you notice I was afraid
I thought I'd run out of things to say
Two more hours until today burns this away
And it starts all over again

The sky will never look the same again
'Til you show me how it could be
The sky will never look the same again
'Til you show me how it could beback to top
