How It Should Be (Sha Sha)
Ben Kweller - How It Should Be (sha Sha)




when i was a movie star, an asteroid had hit the earth and prematurely
ended my career.
i thought out loud, but no one heard me saying:

"nothing isn't nothing, nothing's something that's important to me.
that's right. and everyone's a little nothing, that's ok,
that's how it should
be."

that's right. that's right. sha sha. sha doo.

when i was an astronaut, i bought a fancy charm.
i thought you liked it but you called it cheap and
at my feet it fell like:

"so sue me, it's up to me if i decide to be what i think is right.
and don't bother me when i'm watching 'planet of the apes' on t.v."

that's right. that's how it should be. sha sha. sha doo.

"so sue me, it's up to me if i decide to be what i think is right.
the sound, it found the ground and it hid it for free."

that's right. that's how it should be. sha sha. sha doo.back to top

Force field super shield AA.
Junior high love affair is OK.
Jump on the big wagon cause I'm so Cal.
I'm big in every way. I'm running as fast as I can.

She goes above and beyond her call of duty.
She is a slut but X thinks it's sexy.
Sex reminds her of eating spaghetti.
I am wasted but I'm ready.

If you wanna move it so,
why don't you make it go.
Prove to everybody who doesn't understand.
All the nights, all the fights. You are out of sight.
Some say more with their hand. I'm running as fast as I can.

She goes above and beyond her call of duty.
She is a slut but X thinks it's sexy.
Sex reminds her of eating spaghetti.
I am wasted but I'm ready.

I am wasted but I'm ready. I am wasted but I'm ready.
Running as fast as I can. Running as fast as I can.

Why am I dealing with this feeling?
I'm maxed out like a credit card.
I'll continue to be my worst enemy.
It's easy but it seems so hard.
You're near but you seem so far.

She goes above and beyond her call of duty.
She is a slut but X thinks it's sexy.
Sex reminds her of eating spaghetti.
I am wasted but I'm ready.

She goes above and beyond her call of duty.
She is a slut but X thinks it's sexy.
Sex reminds her of eating spaghetti.
I am wasted but I'm ready.

I am wasted but I'm ready.
Running as fast as I can.back to top
Family Tree
Bop bop.

Care about the moonlight
And holding you tight
And asking my questions.
Everyone loves a situation.

Long walks on the beach.
The press will impeach.
Lately I'm finding
I am the book and you are the binding.

I guess they'll read everything about you.
Though the press might shoot me down I'm still true.
I sell my book for free. that's what you do to me.

Oh, you are my family tree.
Be good to me
Take care of me.

Bop bop.

There's hotels in the sea,
Trash in the sky.,
The net-dustry's growing.
Stick to love songs kid, that's all you're knowing.

They push you away
Or tie you up.
It don't really matter.
But if your head is up you won't get much sadder.

But who am I to preach a word or two
When I can't lift my own head without you?
If my mental state kept you from coming around
I hope the world would shoot me down for losing you.
A broken branch I'd be if you weren't grown to me.

Oh, you are my family tree.
Be good to me.
Be good to me.
Be good to me.
Take care of me.

Bop bop.back to top
Commerce, TX
I got a bad flavor
I got dirty clothes
I got a strange neighbor
Who doesn't have curtains on her windows

I got a pet hedgehog
Drinkin' jaeger all day
You got me crate combo and a baby on the way
But it's ok

It's gonna take a lot of time
Before I can cross that finish line
And when I can't take the fall
I really wanna make that call

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ah ah ah

That's my new best friend
Ann disaster's her name
We're passin' out on the carpet
And our attributes are the same

It's the slacker lifestyle
That we do so well
Bills are due on monday
I'm oblivious, can't you tell

It's gonna take a lot of time
Before I can cross that finish line
And when I can't take the fall
I really wanna make that call

My brain is super-fried
It involves pain to look inside

It's gonna take a lot of time
Before I can cross that finish line
And when I can't take the fall
I really wanna make that callback to top
In Other Words
Another night slips away
In other words I should say
There are no words he should say
There are no words

In his eyes I see the fear
That only time could re-appear
If only time could re-appear
Now's the time

Somethin' to take it away to take it away to take it
Don't let it stay don't let it stay don't let it

The butterflys are passive aggresive and put their problems on the shelf but they're beautiful
He'll realize the only thing thats real are the kids that kid themselves and the demise of the beautiful
What is beautiful?

The multi-life is better than
The one we're in the one we knew
Cause everyone is seein' through everyone

They're steppin' on
His gold terrain
He's movin' on with bold refrain
His blatently old campaign
Is movin' on

Somethin' to take it away to take it away to take it
Don't let it stay don't let it stay don't let it

The butterflys are passive aggresive and put their problems on the shelf but they're beautiful
He'll realize the only thing thats real are the kids that kid themselves and the demise of the beautiful
What is beautiful?

What can't stay goes away

It starts stopping when it stops stoppingback to top
Walk on Me
Sometimes I wonder if you're still here look in' out for anything that could fall and hit your head

Fluorescent lights burn out in time dear we see world in a different light did you give up?

Love ain't supposed to be this bad, make you cry mega ultra sad. if I told you you're all I ever had would you walk on me? I wouldn't walk on you

If I was in your shoes I wouldn't walk all over you so please don't walk all over me if I was in your shoes I wouldn't walk all over you so please don't walk all over me

Right now I feel like it's all ending spit me out sell me cheap you'll never ever ever ever ever teach me to fly

In the sky it's early and still mornin' all those smiles you made wanted to cry cause you gave up

Love ain't supposed to be this bad, make you cry stupid shady sad. if I told you you're all I ever had would you walk on me? I wouldn't walk on you

If I was in your shoes I wouldn't walk all over you so please don't walk all over me. if I was in your shoes I wouldn't walk all over you so please don't walk all over meback to top
Make It Up
I need a new direction to get me around.
You don't have protection as you're coming down.

Light my white candle keep me safe.
It'll put that smile back on my face, ya.

Have you made up your mind?
It's the only way.
Have you made it up? have you made it up?
I admire the time that you take.
Have you made it up? have you made it up?

I still think we should meditate.

I need a good luck charm to give me good luck.
I need a good alarm to wake me up.

Light my white candle keep me safe.
It'll put that smile back on my face, ya.

Have you made up your mind?
It's the only way.
Have you made it up? have you made it up?
I admire the time that you take.
Have you made it up? have you made it up?

You don't tell me about what's going on.
Fucking make up your mind, stop dragging it on.
They're only words, they don't hurt.

We can't even look into our eyes.
We're not the same inside.
We can let it change our lives can braid.
We're constantly afraid.

We can't even look into our eyes.
We're not the same inside.
Go sing your songs, try something new.
I hope you find what's right for you.
Have you made it up? have you made it?

Have you made up your mind?
It's the only way.
Have you made it up? have you made it up?
I admire the time that you take.
Have you made it up? have you made it up?

I still think we should meditate.back to top
No Reason
Let me get lost.
I'll drive you around 'till I run out of gas.
Find me a boss.
There are ripples in my tea cause an
Earthquake's coming.

And there's people meeting on mars.
And people driving in their cars.
And kids are laughing under the stars today.

Let me go hide.
Find a box to put bk inside.
Things are so well.
We're blowing shit up only you could tell.

And there's people meeting on mars.
And people driving in their cars.
And kids are sleeping under the stars today.

No reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason to cry.

I'm going against
Every person that I once walked sith.
Things are happening.
My cat is sleeping and my jade tree's dying.

And there's people meeting on mars.
And people crashing in their cars.
And kids are kissing under the stars today.

No reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason to cry.

No reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason...

No reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason reason
There's no reason to cry. (say goodbye)back to top
Lizzy
Sign me up, I volunteer
Votes are in for lifeguard of the year
Her feline past lives are plain to see
Their similarities are shown in this life again

Like mama said, dontcha let it go to your head
When ya know you're being fed
I'm so proud to know you
Lizzy, I'll write, I'll sing
Telegraph, telegram
Telephone, tellin' you
I'll be home soon
Dienu

We will wake when kitty licks
And in the morn, work takes her to maine
Dressed and out the door by six
Tomorrow is the first time liz can't board my plane

Like mama said, dontcha let it go to your head
When ya know your book is read
I'm so proud to know you
Anna will take me to the port
As liz drives up i-95
Me and my darlin' keep love alive
Even on texas time

Like mama said, dontcha let it go to your head
When your town is painted red
I'm so proud to know you
Lizzy, I'll write, I'll sing
Telegraph, telegram
Telephone, tellin' you
I'll be home soon

Harriet's Got a Song
I don't stand a chance in this fucked-up world.
New school took romance and messed it up real bad.
But your brand new eyes shrink me to a size.
Make it hard to see my reality.

You say I'm blind.
I think you're wrong.
Harriet's got a song.
When we combine
Nothing goes wrong.
Harriet's got a song.

Scare myself sometimes. lead me to the light.
Pet and let me know it'll be alright.
Watch me dive right into the shallow end.
Won't you be my friend? won't you be my neighbor?

You say I'm blind.
I think you're wrong.
Harriet's got a song.
When we combine
Nothing goes wrong.
Harriet's got a song.

Do do do do...

Going off on me. not only can I see,
Memorized your scent, everywhere you went.
Join our wiccan church. blaze the satchel perch.
Everywhere you go - 100%.

You say I'm blind.
I think you're wrong.
Harriet's got a song.
When we collide
Nothing goes wrong.
Harriet's got a song...got a song.back to top
Falling
Wind is cold alright back in dallas. the neon light from the building lets
You know you're home.
You'd go way back when if you wanted to be my friend or you'd call me. i'd
Understand, it's true.

I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down.
Just say hello to the ground.

Ba ba ba ba ba ba

Wait there, I'll be right back. down in times square it's a heart attack.
All the feeling makes you feel so new.
Trees fall and so do men. even the walls start caving in and you feel like
There's no pretend for you.

But I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down.
Just say hello to the ground.

We could talk if days weren't so fast,
And mistakes just leave it so unsure.
Wanna hold you like never before
'case we're falling and I love you more and more.

Do you feel like you're falling down?
Do you feel like you're falling down?
I don't feel like I'm falling-falling-falling down.

I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down.
Just say hello to the ground.

Ba ba ba ba ba ba

Do you feel like you're falling down?
Do you feel like you're falling down?
I don't feel like I'm falling-falling-falling down.
Just say hello to the ground.

I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling.
No, I don't feel like I'm falling down.
Just say hello to the ground.back to top
