2113
I had to kiss you one more time, so I followed you home,
And I almost lost you at the light.
I've seen you a couple of times, but I had no idea,
That you would be mine tonight.

I was to meet another girl, but she did't show,
And you asked if I was alone.
The night came to an end, I had to kiss you one more time,
So I followed you home.

I'm just a boy
I'm on the side
Believe me I don't mind
I'm just a boy
Not quite your type
But that don't matter much tonight

Yeah you asked if you could call, but you didn't write it down,
So I thaught that we were through.
And when you said hello, I could not believe,
That I got a call from you.

It's like candy in a bag, you can put it on a shelf,
It's there when you need a taste.
Sweetness makes you weak, don't eat it everyday,
Just don't let it go to waste.back to top
Scope
Scope

I don't know
when it all began to simmer down. Suddenly I don't want you around.
And I'm siting here
I'm drowning in the worries and the fear.
And now I wish it wasn't quite as clear.

Cause I am starting to forget now
It dissappears so fast
I'm waiting for "the Question" to be asked.
And if you saw me now
you'd not be dissappointed
somehow I've gotten to a point
and I'm not ever coming back
my minds made up I'm staying for as long as it has taken

(to get)
Close to you, I wanna get, Close to you and
I need more time, (I wanna get)
Close to you, I just want, Close to you and
I'm not sure why!

Sometimes I
I get up in the morning so surprised.
It takes me some time to realize.
Lately I,
Have really wished that you were still around.
Here to pick me up off of the ground.back to top
Valentino
Valentino

She got a valentine from Gary
I opened it up it said, "Would you please be mine."
I gave her flowers and some candy
She opened them up and said, "You're trying to make me fat."

(now)
I just want a new girlfriend
I just want someone to make me laugh
I just want a new girlfriend
I just want someone to laugh at me

not to smart, not to tall
likes to watch TV and play basketball

I baught a car and let her drive it
She opened the door and said, "Oh bother, this is red."
I gave her all my notes from algebra
She opened em up and said, "I can't believe you're so stupid."

I won't ever make her wash my car, NO!
I won't ever take a walk, not unless she's there.
Oh,oh,oh,oh!back to top
Corndog
I was all alone on a Saturday night
the funny thing is, we didn't even have a fight
I stayed up all night crying, slept all day, missed the game
Inside i think i'm dying, i just can't figure out how she slipped away

I was out all night one day in Dallas
And the strangest thing is, i can't remember a thing
I was drunk and drinking, woke up in my best friend's car
My friends say i got crazy, still need to find out how she slipped away

I have no idea what i did,
she just told me, "have someone check your head"
Let me ask you, do you think i was wrong?
Trying too hard, maybe i came on too strong?

Trying to find, trying to find, trying to find, trying to find a reason not to leave your side
Trying to find, trying to find an answer before i lose my mind

I was at a club real late last Tuesday,
and the weirdest thing is, i can't remember her name
I stayed up all night trying to make her face, look just like yours
And she ended up crying, i still need to find out how she slipped away

I have no idea what i did
she just told me, "have someone check your head"
Let me ask you, do you think i was wrong?
Trying to hard, maybe i came on too strong?

Trying to find, trying to find, trying to find, trying to find a reason not to leave your side
Trying to find, trying to find an answer before i lose my mind [x2]back to top
Cody
I know you don't come from here
Believe me I am very aware and I'm sorry
But you were a sad little girl
Who got caught up in this world and I'm sorry
So sorry, you feel so sorry all the time

PRE CHORUS
You think you're everything
Some brokenhearted martyr (disco) queen
The reason for the setting sun
Believe me you're the only on
She's the only one

Chorus
Only one who knows so off the little queeny goes to flaunt her ill begotten diamonds and her elevated nose
My numbers in her pocket told her call me up some time yeah there's just no pleasing queeny now that queeny's lost her mind÷(repeat)

I tried to write a song
And rule out all of the wrong it said I'm Sorry
Hey girl lets go on a date
See a movie or roller skate I'm sorry
So sorry, you feel so sorry all the timeback to top
Belgium
Lately I feel so small
Or maybe itís just that my bed has grown
I never noticed it before but you were there
So how was I to know

[bridge]
That this single bed
was always meant for two
not just anyone
it was meant for me and you

[chorus]
and now youíre halfway around the world
and Iím just a day behind
Nothin seems to fill the hole
That I have since you left my side
Youíll always be my little girl
Though I canít hold you tonight
And now youíre halfway round the world
And Iím just a day behind

I wake up in the night
I turn around and find that youíre not there
I just like to watch you sleep and lay by you
I love to feel you near
I think Iím going crazy
Everyday confusion starts to grow
I never noticed it before
But you were there so how was I supposed to knowback to top
Milo
Yeah it was ten years in the making,
but they finally got to tour
I bought all their albums, i've got their sticker on my door
I didn't know this girl from -- she was with some guy named Stan
She drank Bud Ice from a can, and got her rocks off with the band

And she would sing to me
she's all over me
This girl is scarin me
Oh, yeah

When they call her silly girl, they were right on
Dirty sheets and sour grapes, she kept on dancing on and on
Just like so many girls, she just wants to go home with the band
Maybe if she makes us practice, one of us will hold her hand

Graduated art school, and she read of clockwork orange
She asked me if i had any drugs, and she laughed when i said no
She made a plea for a CD, and he thought that he might score
Next thing ya know her mind's on Hubert, he was passed out on the floor

And she would sing to me,
she's all over me
This girl is scarin me
Oh, yeah

When they call her silly girl, they were right on
Dirty sheets and sour graped, she kept dancing on and on
Just like so many girls, she just wants to go home with the band
Maybe if she makes us practice, one of us will hold her hand [x2]back to top
Captain Hook
She looks at me and my world stops
I've got to let her know
Before she has to go
And i hope she does confront me
Cuz i might never find
The words i got in mind

And i don't know, no i don't know
What to say when i'm around you
And I don't know just what to do

You must know the way i feel
By the way i'm acting, yeah
You know i'm so crazy
I'm so crazy about you

She tries to catch me, i won't stop
She grabs me by the hand, i knew she'd understand
And she kisses me, and my heart stops
She asks me if i dance, I said i love the chance

But i don't know, no i don't know
What to say when i'm around you
And I don't know just what to do

You must know the way i feel
By the way i'm acting, yeah
You know i'm so crazy
I'm so crazy about you

She tells me that i am the one she's been looking for
I only hope that it is true
And if i tell her that her image never leaves my mind
Will she say she loves me too?

She looks at me and my world stops
I've got to let her know
Before she has to go
And i hope she does not confront me
Cuz i might never find
The words i've got in mind

And i don't know, no i don't know
What to say when i'm around you
I don't know just what to do, yeah

You must know the way i feel
By the way i'm acting, yeah
You know i'm so crazy,
I'm so crazy about youback to top
Ack!!
ACK!

She's a lovely girl, but, only when she gets her way.
She can be thaughtful, but, she's cruel sometimes.
I think I like her, but, she sends an inconsistant vibe.
Hold my hand out, and, she punches me good-bye.

She's got me tied up in her eyes.
Makes me compromise myself.
She feeds on disillusion.
I thaught she was disillusioned.

I kicked the grass up while I waited outside my front door.
She drove by twice before she stopped and let me in.
I want to tell her exactly how confused I am.
I try to stop, but, then I can't begin.back to top
Thespian
I met her just today
But I've seen her before
and now I sit beside her
When she told me her name
I said "that's my favorite song"
and she said she's never heard it

She broke my trane of thought
when she told me a secret
the one about her friend now
I felt her hand upon my knee
I guess I forgot to breathe
But only for a moment

Chorus
All the While I'm thinkin that I
can't believe she's here with me now
I might be dreamin if I am
don't tell me I don't want to know

She got up to get a beer
so I moved closer to her chair
and she pretended not to notice
I hope she doesn't leave
cause I'd like to talk some more
before I have to go now

Chorus

I guess my talk was just to small
I am not getting anywhere
but, Ive been here before
so I'll just drive home by myself
and drift away to sleep
I guess its no big deal
BIG DEAL

They finally closed the doors
so I walked her to her car
and the rain began to poor
and with a smile she said good bye
and I watched her drive away
I guess I lossed again now!!

Chorusback to top
Kool-Aid
Kool-Aid

I was sitting all by myself just thinking
And know I'm lying awake in bed,
I can't forget about what you said.
I tell myself, "hey man you should know better
You've gotta act like nothings wrong
You've gotta stand up and be strong."

Don't blame me for butting in
These F'N walls are closing in
And if everything does not seem cool
It's cause I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do.

Everything's fine and I don't know why I do this to myself
I've got this thing with losing my mind
I wish I could tell you all the things I want to say
Somehow I think I will in time

I don't suppose I feel like we are sinking
It's not as bad as yesterday
And you can make everything OK.
If you start to feel like we are nowhere
I'll have the memories of you
and, you can think about me too.back to top
I Don't Know
I Don't Know

I'm on my way to West Hall
And I don't know
What your thinking when I show up
You invite me in

I sit and stare at the walls
Full of pictures
Of the people and the places
You hold dear

Sitting on the front porch made our fingers really cold
Could have used some Chap Stick, but, I found something better to use

You made me lose track of time
For just an hour
That we gained the night before
Day-light savings time

It all went by so fast
I forgot
To take a picture from the shoebox
Before I go awayback to top
Wisk
Wisk

She was just 17 and she was a loser
That didn't mean that much to me
She got drunk one day and stole my daddy's car
She went and drove into a tree

I got pissed off one day and through her down some stairs
She cried "oh, daddy don't hit me"
She broke a bottle over her best friends head
It's a wonder she's not dead

She's a loser and she thinks we all abuse her
She doesn't know who to believe

I lost her number and I never called her back
But it's all the same to me
She found out the band was playing at a local
And know she's been stalking me

She's a thorn in my side and she stole my daddy's ride
I wish she was lost at sea
And I just tried to be her friend
And know I don't know where this ends
I wish she would marry me.

She's a loser and she thinks we all abuse her
You know she makes me so happy

She was just 17 and she was a loser
She meant everything to me
She got drunk one night and bit me till it scared
I let her do the other armback to top
Ass Man
I tried to break into your house on Friday night
I got attacked by your big dog
I tried to play my guitar at your window side
Your mother said it was her room

I didn't know it!

I left my phone off of the hook one friday night
You got pissed off and called my friend.
I tried all week to figure why we had a fight
What did I say that wasn't right

I didn't know it!

Why don't you be my one and only friend
Why don't you be my sidekick
You be Robin and I'll try to be Batman
You be Paul to my Letterman
(your Yoko Ono I'm John Lennon)
(you be Marrie I'm Donnie Osmond)
(you're Emmitt Smith and I'm Troy Aikman)

I waited for you once to pick me up from work
You never showed and I was stuck
I left a message with your dad that I came by
He said you had another guy

I didn't know it!back to top
Friday
Friday (B-Luv)



Tuesday seemed like it was thursday
Yesterday I came back down
Standing there, just like the fool I know that I've become
I realize that I'm aware

Once again I see the sun shine
And wipe the sleep out of my eyes
I wake up, to find the world has not stopped turning
And I am going to be allright

I've lost way to much in you
Now I don't know what to do

I broke down, just like I have so many times before
And now I see that nothings changed
Lately things, have turned around back where they were before
And I've got to much on my mindback to top
