Scratch
I've been sitting here for hours
Burned an image of you in my mind
Finding comfort in the words you say
But it's not the same
I know you're worth the wait
And I can't explain
What I'm going through inside
But I would turn away the world
Just to have you here with me tonight

We can take our time
Making sure that everything feels right
It won't be easy but I'm not afraid
You're so far away
We made our start from scratch
It's now or never but we can't look back
I need you with me for another day
You're so far away
Yeah far away

I've been sitting here forever
Your voice is resonating in my mind
Countless hours with you on the phone
And now I'm not alone
I know you're worth the wait
But I can't escape
What I'm going through inside
But i would turn away the world
Just to have you here with me tonight

We can take our time
Making sure that everything feels right
It won't be easy but I'm not afraid
You're so far away
We made our start from scratch
It's now or never but we can't look back
I need you with me for another day
You're so far away
Yeah far away

I know there's no time left for second chances
Still we're right despite these circumstances
You've changed me more than you could ever know
So we will just hang on until tomorrow
So take my hand, don't ever let me go
This time it's right

We can take our time
Making sure that everything feels right
It won't be easy but I'm not afraid
You're so far away
We made our start from scratch
It's now or never but we can't look back
I need you with me for another day
You're so far away
Yeah far awayback to top
Radio Player
Verse 1:
there's a broken needle scratchin' my 45 connection
through a burnt out blown to speaker combinatioin

PRE-CHORUS:
There's nothin' left to do but crank it up loud
It's bumpin' through my head and it's knockin' me out
It doesn't really matter what's going on now...
cause all i wanna do is

CHORUS:
keep the radio playin
all night long
we left the radio playin'
all night long
because the radio was playin' all my favorite songs.

VERSE 2:
There's a broken cd player in the back seat of my car
next to the peices of blood splat from my first guitar

PRE-CHORUS:
CHORUS: x2

BRIDGE:
Some people say
that my radio is dead
but i won't
let myself
believe it

CHORUS: x4

Flypaper
Walk home
drowning these memories in the rain
Biting my lip
to transfer this pain

You're gone
and I'm still going through withdrawl
Next time around
I'll build a stronger wall

You broke my guard with guiltless eyes
Divide me like a virus from inside
And came back just to salt the wounds
Now thanks to you...

I start runnin now
(I start runnin, I'm runnin away from you)
I start runnin away
When I get too close I'm scared to stay
I start runnin now
(I start runnin, I'm runnin away from you)
I start runnin away
Now others pay for your mistakes

You needed
more attention than I gave
Instead of talking
you just played games

And smiled
as my whole world became unstitched
I wish I'd known
you would be such a heartless bitch

You broke my guard with guiltless eyes
Divide me like a virus from inside
And came back just to salt the wounds
Now thanks to you...

I start runnin now
(I start runnin, I'm runnin away from you)
I start runnin away
When I get too close I'm scared to stay
I start runnin now
(I start runnin, I'm runnin away from you)
I start runnin away
Now others pay for your mistakes

I start runnin now
I start runnin away
When I get too close I'm scared to stay
I start runnin now
I start runnin away
Now others pay for your mistakes

I start runnin now
(I start runnin, I'm runnin away from you)
I start runnin away
When I get too close I'm scared to stay
I start runnin now
(I start runnin, I'm runnin away from you)
I start runnin away

Overrated
Well I think the time has come
to tell you how I feel about everything
thats been inside my mind
since the day we crossed
the line into this real life fantasy
cause I poured my heart into
the last 3 years of wondering
what I should do
should I cash the check
and trade in what I thought I knew
your promises don't help to make it easier

Cause the last thing that I need is somebody like you
to push me around and tell me what to do
I know theres a time and place where you can call the shots
but it't not here

Cause I poured my heart into
the last 3 years of wondering
what I should do
should I cash the check
and trade in what I thought I knew
your promises don't help to make it easier

Because the last thing that I need is somebody like you
to push me around and tell me what to do
I know theres a time and place where you can call the shots
but it't not here

Cause I think this whole life is just overrated
this whole life is too complicated
this whole life is just overrated now
this whole life is just overrated
this whole life is too complicated
this whole life is just overrated now

I don't remember what you said to me that night
so I just signed the dotted line

Cause now I find out this whole life is just overrated
this whole life is too complicated
this whole life is just overrated now
this whole life is just overrated
this whole life is too complicated
this whole life is just overrated nowback to top
Better Late Than Forever
*~*~Allister- Better Late Than Forever Lyrics~*~*
Album- Last stop Suburbia
Tabbed by- ***Faye~ fayetherockstarprincess@hotmail.com***

I'm writing this song to tell you that i'm sorry
Because i know you never thought i'd be away so long
I know it's unfair to ask you to wait for me
When i don't have a real job and you're ready to move on

And it's hard to keep my balance
When you look the other way
So i'm letting go with every breath i'm taking

So many reasons,
i need something more to believe in
The time has come to turn and walk away
Through all these changes, mistakes
There was time now it's too late
There's nothing more that i could say to you

I'm writing this song to tell you that it's over
Your jealousy took you way too far this time
Another day comes i'm better off without you
So now i'll take a deep breath and get on with our lives

And it's hard to keep my balance
When you look the other way
So i'm letting go with every breath i'm taking

So many reasons,
i need something more to believe in
The time has come to turn and walk away
Through all these changes, mistakes
There was time now it's too late
There's nothing more that i could say to you

So what good is today?
If there's not gonna be a tomorrow
It's too much for me to take
I know i don't want to wait forever
Just remember that life without us won't be the same

So many reasons,
i need something more to believe in
The time has come to turn and walk away
Through all these changes, mistakes
There was time now it's too late
There's nothing more that i could say to you

The years that we've been through
Were not meant to hurt you
It's felt so wrong for so long so now we can move on
As time helps the healing I can't help but feeling
That goodbye and thank you
The only words that I can say to you
*********************************************************************
Yeah thats it.. email me if there's any problems or whatever..

The One That Got Away
You left a guy who told you where to be and when
I was with a girl who tried to sleep with my best friend
We both took comfort in each others messy lives
Finding warmth on that cold November night
We swore it'd be years before we brought that on again
Days later you said that we should be more
than just friends
I let my guard down cause the feelings were so strong
But acted stupid and that's when he came along

It's been so long
I should just move on
There's other fish in the sea
But I keep hoping that you'll swim back to me

We'd sneak out and go swimming late at night
You're one of few who can say they've seen me cry
You got my quirkiness and awkward sense of humor
We shared Simpson quote and started made up rumors

If night turned into day you'd hide me from your mom
I could never fight with you cause you were never wrong
This time especially the blame is all on me
If I'd not screwed things up I wonder where we'd be

One day for no reason I broke our date
So you made other plans that day
And that's when you met him
And why you're still with him today

I keep hoping you'll swim back home to me
I'm just glad I got a chance to know you
You'll forever be the one that got awayback to top
Racecars
I met this girl the other day
Sitting alone on the Wednesday train
I said what's wrong you look so sad
She said she's got something inside
That she's not willing to confide
So I said can I give some free advice

Don't worry about your problems now baby 'cuz
They just don't matter when it comes down to the fact
That everybody's got problems now baby
And life's too short to keep them bottled up inside

'Cuz I know
When life feels like a racecar speeding down
It's one way street
That I'll go
Anywhere that feels like heaven down this one way street
'Cuz I know that everything will be fine.

I met this guy the other day
Sitting alone on the Sunday train
Dressed up with nowhere left to go
He said if there's one thing that I've learned
Thru all these cigarettes I've burned
You've got to stop and look around
He said that hindsight's clearer than a crystal ball
If he had the chance he would stop and do it all over again
'Cuz when you're waiting for the sound of the gavel
You don't want it to end with a fistful of regrets inside

'Cuz I know
When life feels like a racecar speeding down
It's one way street
That I'll go
Anywhere that feels like heaven down this one way street
'Cuz I know that everything will be fine.

'Cuz I know
When life feels like a racecar speeding down
It's one way street
That I'll go
Anywhere that feels like heaven down this one way street
'Cuz I know that everything will be fine.back to top
Matchsticks
I've been waiting for the right time to tell her how I feel
I've been waiting so long to say what's on my mind
But I just don't think she's gonna understand
That we could watch a stupid movie
While I hold her by the hand
Stay up all night talking but we'll never get the chance
So I wrote these words so maybe she'll understand

That I've been staying up all night
Waiting for a phone call
Staying up all night
Praying that I don't fall
Madly in love with this girl that's gonna break my heart
(she'll break my heart every time I see her)

I guess it's t he right time to tell her how I feel
It's my one last shot to say what's on my mind
But I just don't think she's gonna understand
That I would drive all night just to see her for a day
Make another broken promise
If she says that I could stay
So I wrote these words so maybe she'll understand

Every time I see her smile that smile
I think that maybe she had saved that one for me
Then I realize that I'm going crazy
Or maybe it's just my imagination working overtime
On a girl that's gonna break my heartback to top
Camouflage
Hiding in back and never make a sound
If you don't speak your thoughts
They can't be turned around
You lead a targeted youth
Would only talk to certain few
Can't find the courage to leave your shell yet
Torn apart and...

Camouflaged in the background and holding things deep
Never showing your true self to the kids you meet
Finding shade in imagination
One more day forgotten to the world

Finding short term courage in a flask
Another wasted day you're never getting backback to top
Don't Think Twice
Take these promises I've made
And hold them strong
Don't think twice about those things that I did wrong

Cause I'd never do something intentionally just hurt you
And I've stared at the sky
and I've asked myself why you've become like an angel to me

Still the days and the weeks and the hours go by
and the minutes they just fade away
And I'm missing you every second in time
And it hurts cause you're so far away
All tears that I cry when you're not by my side
And those nights I dream of kissing you goodnight
Are on my mindback to top
Somewhere on Fullerton
Allister - Somewhere Down In Fullerton




Somewhere down in Fullerton
There's a place we used to go to get away from it all
And somewhere down in Fullerton
There's a place we used to go to get away from it all

And i'm still tryin' just to figure out why
this could feel so wrong when it felt so right
it felt so right four years ago

So please don't go away
Won't this feeling stay with me forever
Whenever I say please don't go away
I just want you to stay with me forever

Somewhere down in Fullerton
There's a place that meant so much to everybody like me
And somewhere down in Fullerton
There's a place that meant the world to everybody like me

And im still tryin' just to figure out why
this could feel so wrong when it felt so right
It felt so ight four years ago

So please don't go away
Won't this feeling stay with me forever
Whenever I say please don't go away
I just want you to stay with me forever

And im still tryin' just to figure out why
This could feel so wrong when it felt s right
It felt so rghtfour years ago

So please don't go away
Won't this feeling stay with me forever
Whenever I say please don't go away
I just want you to stay with me forever
Whenever I say please don't go away
I just want you to stay with me forever
Whenever I say please don't go away
Cause all I want is you to stay with me.back to top
Westbound
Drive through nights on empty roads
Hoping the clubs promote our show
Wasting days in endless naps
Find new ways to fill the gaps

Another word game with the band
Another losing rummy hand
Another night slept in the van

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage (the van)
And as my dream world fades another takes it's place (the van)
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares (the van)
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there (the van)

Reading to save our numbing minds
Meeting new friends we'll leave beind
Lay on the loft and trace the stars
Start the day in no ones arms

Another night without a sell
Another meal at Taco Bell
Another story I can tell

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage (I can tell)
And as my dream world fades another takes it's place (I can tell)
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares (I can tell)
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there (I can tell)

2, 3, 4!!!

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage
And as my dream world fades another takes it's place
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there

I'm forced awake again in time to take the stage (up there)
And as my dream world fades another takes its place (up there)
I look into the crowd and see myself through stares (up there)
Back when I hoped someday I'd be the one up there (up there)back to top
Know It All
Well you think you know it all
You think that you deserve the best,
but I've got news for you
Your bullshit smile can't pass this test
Cause there's somethin that I've wanted to say
I've wanted to say to you, woah
I've been waiting to say to you, woah
for so long

This time I'm ready
I'm ready for somethin new
This time I'm ready
I'm ready for somethin new

Now I get sick of listening to your whining
Cause you may have found success,
but your still living life out lie
Now I can't wait fot the day that you will burn out
and fade away, woah
You'll burn out and fade away from the world (woah)

This time I'm ready
I'm ready for somethin new
This time I'm ready
I'm ready for somethin new

Why can't I understand your superficial views (woah),
but I can understand I can't take much more of you?

Fuck you, I'm ready
I'm ready for somethin new
Fuck you, I'm ready
I'm ready for somethin newback to top
Stuck
late night
long day
somehow it's never quite enough
and maybe
i'm lazy
it's been so long sometimes i feel like giving up

so now i'm staying up all night
cause i'm trying to understand
why i feel like i've been stuck here forever
i'll break out today
i'm throwing my life away
you don't even know
i'll break out today
i'm throwing my life away
you don't even know

maybe
i'll get through
just one more day of feeling dumb
i don't think
i need to
get over this until i feel like growing up

so now i'm staying up all night
cause i'm trying to understand
why i feel like i've been stuck here forever
i'll break out today
i'm throwing my life away
you don't even know
i'll break out today
i'm throwing my life away
you don't even know

i'll break out today
i'm throwing my life away
you don't even know
i'll break out today
i'm throwing my life away
you don't even knowback to top
Waiting for You
If I could tell you one thing
Then I'd tell you everything
I'd probably say that you've been on my mind
Since we held hands out in the rain
Smoking cigarettes to play
Off all the butterflies I had inside

And now I think that you should know
That you've got everything
That I've wanted for so damn long
And that I wouldn't hesitate to trade away everything
If you tell me that I'm not wrong
So know I think that you should know
That I've been waiting for you

Since we sat underneath the stars
as I held you in my arms
Killing just another summer night

It's funny how the best things happen sometimes
And how I'll always remember those endless nights
But don't forget I regret the fact that I have to leave you
Right as the best part starts
So I thought I'd take the time to sayback to top
