I Don't Wanna Rock
It really sucks to give your heart to a girl
You want to know her like she knows the whole world
But 10 seconds in, it's obvious, your going nowhere...

She makes you tell her that she's your best friend
You tell her things you know won't make her mad
Don't want to be the one to say things are going nowhere...

Where are you now?
Where are you now?

I don't wanna talk
I don't wanna rock
I don't wanna wait by the phone, and,
I don't wanna tell you I love you
Don't wanna tell you I love you, anymore!!!

It's hard to live outside her safety zone
Cause you remember being all alone
Two kinds of misery and either way, you're going nowhere...

Where are you now?
Where are you now?

I don't wanna talk
I don't wanna rock
I don't wanna wait by the phone, and,
I don't wanna tell you I love you
Don't wanna tell you I love you, anymore!!!

And she makes me want to be a homosexual
Maybe I'll be her best friend, maybe see her naked once in a while

I don't wanna talk
I don't wanna rock
I don't wanna talk
I don't wanna rock
I don't wanna wait by the phone, and,
I don't wanna tell you I love you
Don't wanna tell you I love you, anymore!!!back to top
Emily
[verse 1]
It wasn't supposed to be like this
Another dose of unhappiness
I gave it all and managed to get shot down yet again
So I got drunk
Had sex with all your friends
You told me to never call your house again

[chorus]
Emily, you saved the day
Emily, when you threw me away

She was always such a pretty girl
Nobody like her in the world
A little piece of heavenly
That no one else could stand
I see her in my dreams at night
I see you when I close my eyes
I just can't seem to shake you, emily

[verse 2]
You got your money and I got cast
Outside thrown out on my ass
In the city with no one else, no where else to go
So I hooked up with this model from singapore
Emily, I sure am glad you didn't want me anymore

[chorus]

She was always such a pretty girl
Nobody like her in the world
A little piece of heavenly
That no one else could stand
I see her in my dreams at night
I see you when I close my eyes
I just can't seem to shake you, emily
Yeah

Emily, you saved the day
Emily, you saved the day
Emily, you saved my assback to top
Girl All the Bad Guys Want
8 o'clock, monday night and I'm waitin'
To finally talk to a girl a little cooler than me.
Her name is nona, she's a rocker with a nose ring,
She wears a two way, but I'm not quite sure what that means.

And when she walks,
All the wind blows and the angels sing.
She doesn't notice me!

Cause she is watchin' wrestling
Creamin' over tough guys
Listenin' to rap metal
Turntables in her eyes

It's like a bad movie
She is lookin' through me
If you were me, then you'd be
Screamin' someone shoot me!
As I fail miserably,
Tryin' to get the girl all the bad guys want.
She's the girl all the bad guys want!

She likes the godsmack and I like agent orange
Her cd changer's full of singers that are mad at their dad
She says she'd like to score some reefer and a forty
She'll never know that I'm the best that she'll never have

And when she walks,
All the wind blows and the angels sing.
She'll never notice me!

Cause she is watchin' wrestling
Creamin' over tough guys
Listenin' to rap metal
Turntables in her eyes

She likes 'em with a mustache
Racetrack season pass
Drivin' in a trans-am
Does a mullet make a man?

It's like a bad movie
She is lookin' through me
If you were me, then you'd be
Screamin' someone shoot me!
As I fail miserably,
Tryin' to get the girl all the bad guys want.
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
She's the girl all the bad guys want!

There she goes again
With fishnets on, and dreadlocks in her hair
She broke my heart, I wanna be sedated
All I wanted was to see her naked!

Now I am watchin' wrestling
Tryin' to be a tough guy
Listenin' to rap metal
Turntables in my eyes
I can't grow a mustache
And I ain't got no season pass
All I got's a moped...moped....moped.....

It's like a bad movie
She is lookin' through me
If you were me, then you'd be
Screamin' someone shoot me!
As I fail miserably,
Tryin' to get the girl all the bad guys want.

She's the girl all the bad guys want!
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
(there she goes again)
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
(there she goes again)
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
She's the girl all the bad guys want!back to top
On and On (About You)
I'm happy again
To be stuck here again
And you're so happy again
To be stuck here again

Now we can laugh about the good 'ol days
Laugh at dumb jokes that you make
It's great to be here and I'm just elated
To be someone you once hated
And it's all so complicated
Maybe this time you can crawl inside your little world
Makeout with another girl
If it were up to me I'd like to

Buy you flowers every day
Make every day a holiday
Carry on and on and on about you
And the things you do
The things you do

I'm so sorry again
You say you're leavin' me again
Cause you're not happy again
Now we're stuck here again
Now you can scream about the little things
Slap me twice across the face
Man it would be great if I could

Buy you flowers every day
Make every day a holiday
Carry on and on and on about you
And the things you do
The things you do
(Alright)

I'd like to buy you flowers every day
Make every day a holiday
Carry on and on and on about you
And the things you do

Me gustaria comprar de flores cada dia
Hace el cada dia una vacacion
Y habla mas y mas y mas de ti
De las cosas que haces

I just said I'd buy you flowers every day
Make every day a holiday
Carry on and on and on about you
And the things you do
The things you do....do....do....do....

Ole!back to top
Surf Colorado
I saw you there
Your long brown hair
Falling on your face the way it used to fall on mine
At one time
A long time ago
I still remember everything you said to me that night

It's too bad and it's too late
You were such a big mistake
Please don't call here anymore
I used to miss you

[chorus]
There's no surfin colorado anyway
And it's a shame to hear you're happy and you still look at me that way
There's no surfin colorado anyway, yeah
She never waved to me or said good bye
One night she just left me and her behind

There she goes
And no one knows
What she does to my heart, still, she'll never know
How we speak
Across the room
Eye to eye she's holding him, holding me soon

It's too bad and it's too late
Was it such a big mistake?
You don't call me anymore
And I still miss you

[chorus]

Remember the first time
God damn we got so high
She held me so close that I thought that I might break
And know she's a mile high
And I'm on texas time
She traded rattlesnakes for bunny runs in colorado springs

[chorus]back to top
Life After Lisa
I'm waking up and bakin'
Watching the parade cause today's the day I got over you
Taking out the trash and the pictures that I stashed
Of the two of us in 1992

You stole my heart when eddie veder was king
I gave you a foot massage I gave you my ring
You left me for a drummer cause you said I couldn't sing
But, that's ok

[chorus]
Cause there'll be
No more mountain climbing in the rain
No more long hair clogging up the drain
No more life will never be the same
Life after lisa is not so bad at all

Saw you with the dude who gave us our first tattoos
Did he cover up my name that was fast
Can you believe that I'm alive, still not working 9 to 5
And my little band is kicking some ass

So when you asked me if I hated you now
It's not you it's just all of the times I missed out
On sleeping with your roommate every time you passed out
But, that's ok

[chorus]

I'll bet you're saying to yourself that you'll find somebody else like me
But all I've gotta say is there ain't no fucking way that you're getting me to say
I'm sorry..........no today!!!

[chorus]
Cleaning up the house again
Listening to house of pain
Having headaches in my brain
Listening to you complain
Shopping at the mall again
I'm out of rhymes I've gotta say
Life after lisa is not so bad at all!!!!back to top
Where to Begin
Sail away, sail away with me
I donít have a ship
But we can get one easily
Drift away, drift away with me
On the raft
Weíll make memories
On the ocean we can call forever more

I want to find
A piece of your mind
I want to see
You make believe
I donít want to try so hard
I make it hard for you to breathe

Jump into the ocean
Living on a notion
If youíre caught up in the motion
Back track and try it again
And if you make it up
I could never get enough
Me and you together
But youíve gotta tell me where to begin

Break away, break away from me
No forget that, just sit here and look at me
Summers day
Summers every day
And we watch the sunset come back up
And somehow know itís never goes back down
Iíve been saving up to but more time
With you
Youíve been living it up with someone else
And thatís ok with me
Because I know it and you know it too

Jump into the ocean
Living on a notion
If youíre caught up in the motion
Back track and try it again
And if you make it up
I could never get enough
Me and you together
But youíve gotta tell me where to beginback to top
The Last Rock Show
Stand in line behind me
We've got tons of time to
Let it all hang out
Cast the demons out

Once we're in the roof falls
I hear we have got to
Raise it up
And let the f***** burn

And this is sure to take a while
But if we're going out, we're going out with style
So we all jump around
And we fall to the ground
Like it's the last rock show of our livesback to top
Self-Centered
I got it stuck in a bind
I don't even know why
It sucks to even try
But I won't try anymore

She took the afternoon train
To find a different plane
But life down the drain
Better than being ignored

[pre chorus:]
I think I'm taking a vacation now
I'm on holiday and maybe I won't rest
Until I've thrown it all away
Yeah I've got it down

[chorus:]
I'm gonna feel sorry for myself
I want to blame it on everyone else
I want to be self centered
And make everybody feel sorry for me

She sent a postcard again
She said she had a new friend
I hope that by the end
He throws her heart to the floor
She says he's really ok
I hope he ends up gay
It's not a nice thing to say
But I don't care anymore

[bridge:]
My leg fell asleep
Cause you laid on it
There's no reason to dwell on it
It's just not worth it
Remember a year ago
When we played in the show
Now get outta my headback to top
The Hard Way
Iím moving in
Sheís moving out to Los Angeles
Sheís got a truck, Sheí got my stuff
Backed into it
Just seven months
Was just enough
Of putting up with me
Imagine that
A baseball bat upside her TV

She says she needs some therapy
You know it seemed so simple before
She could of asked
I would have given her anything
And now itís 1,2,3
Blame it on me
And I had find it out the hard way

She callís me up
Sheís cracking up
In Los Angeles
She misses home
Sheís alone
She canít handle it
But seven months was just enough
Of putting up with her
Your brand new nose and bigger boobs
Donít change a thing

You need some therapy
I think you need some help

You know it seemed so simple before
She could of asked
I would have given her anything
And now itís 1,2,3
Blame it on me
And I had find it out the hard way
And now itís 1,2,3
Blame it on me
And I had find it out the hard way

Sheís got a lot to figure out
Sheís got a lot to think about
Sheís got a lot to forget about
Sheís got a lot to live without
So many things to miss about me

You know it seemed so simple before
She could of asked
I would have given her anything
And now itís 1,2,3
Blame it on me
And I had find it out the hard way
And now itís 1,2,3
Blame it on me
And I had find it out the hard wayback to top
Out the Window
You said to never ever come back
I wasn't sure exactly what you meant by that
I know that we have had some problems
But I've got solutions in my head

[chorus:]
So I jumped out the window
And down the fire escape
Broke the window, who needs car keys anyway?
Climbed through the window, I thought led to your heart
Thrown out the window, there was nothing there to break my fall.

Sorry I sent you all the flowers
I heard your boyfriend wants to shove them up my ass
I never meant to cause you problems
But I've got solutions in my head.

[chorus]

You said it's over
You said never again
Why does this happen all the time?
You don't even want to be friends
It makes you happy when I cry
Now all I've got left is my sanity
Now all I've got left is my sanity
And I'm not sure how far it goes.back to top
Cold Shower Tuesdays
Her finger traced I love you
In the palm of my hand
That's still the only time
My belly's ever hit the floor like that

Your feet in my lap
We drove the past
Knowing we would turn around again

[chorus:]
Tell her I'm not sorry
Mention my ferrari
Just don't tell her that
I miss her
She wanted in
I wanted out
And that's the last thing we talked about

Remember how our hands matched
Love lines, same size
I guess I should have checked
To the lifelines were in line

I called on the phone
You still felt alone
And talked about the songs that made you cry

[chorus]

Campfire cookies
And john hughes movies
Jr. mints & cold shower tuesdays
November shivers and rearview mirrors
And the little things like that

[chorus]back to top
Running from Your Dad
Remember the summer time we were swinging
On the front porch out in the rain
It was sunday you were all dressed up again
Then we made out under the window pain

[chorus]
And I can still see your dad
Running after me with a shovel in his hand
I don't remember much after that
La la la la, la la la la, oh oh oh oh...
La la la la, la la la la, oh oh oh oh...

Remember on christmas eve you were crying
I guess you didn't really like the gifts
Porno dvds and see thru under wear
I should have saved all that for your sis

[chorus]

So I guess I'll just run away, run away, run away
He's starting to catch up
Run away, run away
I think I might throw up
Run away, run away

[chorus]back to top
Scaring Myself
She slams the front door
Cuz she knows that I can't stand it
Gives me the finger
Cuz she knows I'm wrapped around it.
She calls me sweetheart
Cuz she knows it makes me weak.
She stepped in dog pooh
And I'm still kissing her feet.

Can you believe how this girl
Treats me like a king?

[chorus:]
She took more than she gave to me
I gave my love, I got an std
And if she comes home,
I hope that she'll marry me.
I want to tell her that it's over now
Hey look, I'm arguing with myself
I think that my girlfriend
Is bad for my mental health
And now I'm scaring myself.

The roller coaster makes me sick and she knows it.
That's why she always insists that I go on it
She told my friends that I need therapy
I need a self-help group or a lobotomy

Can you believe how this girl
Treats me like a king?

[chorus]

I'm waking up
I'm getting out.

[chorus]back to top
She's Got a Boyfriend Now
She used to be the happiest girl I knew
I remember seeing her laugh
I remember the time she cried
When tears filled her eyes
As we sang 'love song' by tesla
Her smile is turning upside down
She's got a boyfriend now

[chorus:]
She's got a boyfriend now
And it's hard to see
What she's got herself into
She's getting used to
The loneliness that's bottled up
Inside she knows
She'll stick right through the sad times
And all the bad times
Cuz it's up to her to make some sense somehow
She's got a boyfriend now

She always knew she'd find the right guy
To hold her through the night
Someone she'd take to meet her mom
And take her to see brittany spears
Who knows if clark kent is a superman?
Or if he's just an asshole
Leading on and on
And on and on
And on

[chorus]

Why does it always seem to be
Guys like that always get to be the one
She thinks the world of
And why does it always seem to me
That girls like that can't ever find someone
Someone like me
And it's hard to know the difference between inside and out
When she asks if I can mend her broken heart
I wouldn't know where to start.

She got what she always wanted
She got what she always wanted
And now

She's only crying on the inside

[chorus]back to top
Greatest Day
[verse 1:]
I've got the keys to the car
I'm goin out on an afternoon vacation
They all know where I'm gonna go

[bridge:]
The sun is shining down and
There is no one else around now
Wish you were here to hear me say
This is gonna be my greatest day

[chorus:]
How far would I go
How long would I stay
To see it all
To carry it all back with me again
How hard would I try
Just to hear everybody say
This is gonna be my greatest day

[verse 2:]
Standing here, looking out on the world
And for a second nobody is looking back at me
I never even notice where they goback to top
