The Shower Scene
It's funny how your worst enemies always seem to turn
out to be all of your best friend's best friends.
But I folded and I told.
These aren't things I've saved to sing you,
but I folded and I told.
So draw or throw and I will explode.
It's time for you to choose, the bullet or the chapstick.
Or "you are far too cute to be appreciated by a..." or whatever he said.
Every time I hear it (him) I am wishing I was great.
I wished her (past tense) my best friend.
But then I folded and I told.
These aren't things I say to save me.
But I folded, I told.
I hope she's caught in the explosion.
It's time for you to choose, the bullet or the chapstick.
Or "you are far too cute to be appreciated by a..." or whatever he said.
This is me in his room.
Red. Gold. I told.
We don't play fair.
Red. Gold. I told.
We never stand too close.
So I update this almost every single day for you.
I begin to hate you for your face and not just the things you go.
So go tell him why my wrist is sore,
from pulling out your insides all night.
Nothing that you do is new to anything or anyone but you.back to top
Jude Law and a Semester Abroad
Whatever poisons in this bottle
will leave me broken, sore and stiff
But it's the genie at the bottom who I'm sucking at,
he owes me one last wish
So here's a present to let you know I still exist
I hope the next boy that you kiss has something terribly contagious on his lips

But I got a plan (I got a plan)
To drink for forty days and forty nights
A sip for every second-hand tick
And every time you fed the line,
"you mean so much to me"
I'm without you

Tell all the English boys you meet
about the American boy back in the states
The American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say
Tell all the English boys you meet
about the American boy back in the states
The American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say

And even if her plane crashes tonight
she'll find some way to disappoint me,
by not burning in the wreckage,
or drowning at the bottom of the sea
Jess, I still taste you, and thus reserve my right to hate you
And all this empty space that you create
does nothing for my flawless sense of style
It's 8:45 (it's 8:45), the weather is getting better by the hour (rains all the time)
I hope it rains there all the time
And if you ever said you miss me then don't say you never lied
I'm without you

Tell all the English boys you meet
about the American boy back in the states
The American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say
Tell all the English boys you meet
about the American boy back in the states
The American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say,
who would do anything you say

Never gonna get it right, you're never gonna get it [15x]

Okay no more songs about you. After this one I am done.
You're gone.[repeat untill end]

Tell all the English boys you meet
about the American boy back in the states
The American boy you used to date
who would do anything you say
Tell all the English boys you meet
about the American boy back in the states
The American boy you used to date
who would do anything you sayback to top
Sudden Death in Carolina
Last night I swallowed liquor and a lighter
and this morning I threw up fire
But it's nothing new
I've been piecing it together and it's got something to do
with every look thrown like a knife across a crowded room
And every slow and quiet car ride I spent drinking in the backseat
Every stupid melody to every stupid song,
and every stupid word that everybody's hanging on

Chorus:
What difference does this difference in age make?
I know how it ends... she'll kill me quick.
Call 911, I'm already dead but
someone should be caught and held responsible
for this bloody mess

Last night I fell asleep next to a liar
and I woke up with a shiner
And it's all that I remember from a night spent lying on my back with a view
of a stone white ceiling and the back of your head
And this quiet dark bed feels like the middle of nowhere
And we beat each other up just like we always do
When I'm talking to myself I'd always rather be talking to you

What difference does this difference in age make?
I know how it ends... she'll kill me quick.
Call 911, I'm already dead but
someone should be caught and held responsible
for this bloody mess

Call homicide, take the case to court
Cause her lips taste like a loaded gun
I'm her number one chalk outline on the floor

They hung her from the bridge on Monday
The gathering turned to a mob out on the lawn
They dropped her body in the river
School and work returned to normal before long
(before long... and no one will mention any of this again)

Call 911, I'm already dead but
someone should be caught and held responsible
for this bloody mess

Call homicide, take the case to court
Cause her lips taste like a loaded gun
I'm her number one chalk outline on the floorback to top
Mix Tape
this is pretty simple, the verses are basically the same but his emphasis
changes when it stops being acoustic (right after the first verse).

I got a twenty dollar bill
It says no one's ever seen you without make up
You're always made up
And I'm sick of your tattoos
And the way you always criticize the Smiths
and morisee
And I know that you're a sucker
For anything acoustic
But when I say let's keep in touch
I really mean I wish that you'd grow up
This is the first song for your mix tape
And it's short just like your temper
Somewhat golden like the afternoons we used to spend
Before you got too cool

I got a twenty dollar bill
It says noone's ever seen you without make up
You're always made up
And I'm sick of your tattoos
And the way you don't appreciate Brand New
or me
And I know that you're a sucker
For anything acoustic
But when I say lets keep in touch
I really mean I wish that you'd grow up
This is the first song for your mix tape
And it's short just like your temper
Somewhat golden like the afternoons we used to spend
Before you got too coolback to top
Failure by Design
Watch you, on the one's and two's.
Through a window in a well lit room.
Become a recluse.
And I blame myself cause I make things hard and your just trying to help.
And when I wake up, your the first to call.
This is one more late night basement song.
And I'm so sore, my voice has gone to hell, and this is one more sleepless
night,

Because we don't believe in filler baby.
If I could I'd sit this out.

(This is over)
This is a lesson in procrastination.
(When I say it's over.)
I kill myself because I'm so frustrated.
And every single second that I put it off, means another lonely night I got
to race the clock.
(I ignore it )
What say we go and crash your car?
(and it ignores me too)
And every time I leave you go and lock the door.
So I walk myself picking at a chip on my shoulder, I'm another day late and
one year older.
it's failure by design.

And we just want sleep, but this night is hell.
I'm sick and sunk and I blame myself because I make things hard and your
just trying to help.
I got no gas,I'm winding out my gears.
This is one more day on the verge of tears.
And now my head hurts and my health is a joke.
And now I got to stop cause the headphones broke.

And we don't believe in filler.
Baby, if I could I'd sit this out.
(This is over, when I say it's over.)
This is a lesson in procrastination.
I kill myself because I'm so frustrated.
And every single second that I put it off, means another lonely night I
gotta race the clock.
(I ignore it)
What say we go and crash your car?
(and it ignores me too)
And every time I leave you go and lock the door.
And I walk myself picking at a chip on my shoulder.
I'm another day late and one year older, it's failure by design.

I'm out of everything.
No one sleeps until we get this shit out on the shelves.
It's late, I'm faltering.
but this time I got nothing to say besides...
DO DO DO (14 Times)

nothing to say besides

And we don't believe in filler.
Baby, if I could I'd sit this out.
(This is over, when I say it's over.)
This is a lesson in procrastination.
I kill myself because I'm so frustrated.
And every single second that I put it off, means another lonely night I
gotta race the clock.
(I ignore it)
What say we go and crash your car?
(and it ignores me too)
And every time I leave you go and lock the door.
And I walk myself picking at a chip on my shoulder.
I'm another day late and one year older, it's failure by design.back to top
Last Chance to Lose Your Keys
I cashed in all my chips tonight
and combed my hair till it was just right.
Cause I've been thinking about you and me girl,
and we got something going on. You told me you
can't wait to see me and then you didn't bother
to even show up. This whole situation is incredibly
typical, I should have seen it all along.
It's girls like you that make my think I'm better off
at home on a Saturday night with all my doors locked up tight.
I won't be thinking about you baby. You call me on the phone,
and you don't even want to talk. You're staring at me from
across the room then turn your back when I walk up.
We got inches away, and I never even got close.
So leave your lipstick at home. Don't pick up the phone.
Don't bother to look in my direction. I should have seen
it all along. It's girls like you that make me think
I'm better off home on a Saturday night with all my
doors locked up tight. I won't be thinking about you,
baby. Forget everything you think you know about me.
This isn't highschool this isn't highschool this isn't

Logan to Government Center
Consider this a letter that I never sent.
However inconsiderate it seems.
Do you still consider me the boy you laughed with, or that you learned to live without?
I suck. I know I'm late. I know you waited.
You wouldn't get me on the phone.
You couldn't make me not alone.
The phone bills are all stacked up by my bedside, with your picture, looking surprised.
You're what makes New England great.
My island nights are all spent dying.
Wait for summer to become wrought with lips (my wishful thinking).
I never thought this day would end.
I never thought tonight could ever be this close to me...
So let my hands stray past that boundaries of your back... and get you breathing.
And we'll get this started.
You could have made me not alone.back to top
The No Seatbelt Song
So its sad this doesn't suit you now. and me fresh out of rope.
Please ignore the lisp I never meant to sound like this.
So take me and break me make me strong like you.
I'll be forever grateful to this and to you.
It's only you, beautiful or I don't want anyone if I can choose its only you.
Fix me to a chain around your neck and wear me like a nickel.
Even new wine served in old skins will cheapen the taste.
I shot the pilot, now, I'm begging you to fly this for me.
I'm here for you to use, broken and bruised.
Do you understand?
It's only you beautiful, or i don't want anyone.
If I can chose its only you.
But how I could I miscalculate, perfect eyes.
Will have perfect aim? if I can choose its only you
"we're wrecking" and I'm dry like a drum
So fine, I'll leave... we're spent... take our time... measured
We slave for days.
Its only you, beautiful. or I don't want anyone if can choose its only you.
But how could I miscalculate
Perfect lies from a perfect dame. If I can choose its only you.back to top
Seventy Times 7
Back in school they never taught us
what we needed to know
Like how to deal with despair
or someone breakin your heart
For twelve years I've held it all together
but a night like this is beggin to pull me apart
I played it quiet left you deep in conversation
I felt uncool and hung out around the kitchen
I remember I kept thinking
that I know you never would
And now I know I want to kill you
like only a best friend could

Everyone's caught on to everything you do
Everyone's caught on to...

As if it happening wasn't enough
I got to go and write a song
just to remind myself how bad it sucked
Ignore the sun, covers over my head
Wrote a message on my pillow that says
"Jesse, stay asleep in bed"
Don't apologize (I hope you choke and die!)
Search your cell for something which to hang yourself
They say you need to pray
if you want to go to heaven
But they don't tell you what to say
when your whole life has gone to Hell!

Everyone's caught on to everything you do
Everyone's caught on to...
(and I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do
(and I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to...

So is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with
Cause I've seen more spine on jellyfish
I've seen more guts on eleven-year-old kids
Have another drink and drive yourself home
I hope there's ice on all the roads
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt
and again when your head goes through the windshield

Is that what you call tact?
You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back
So let's end this call and end this conversation
And is that what you call a getaway?
Tell me what you got away with
Cause you left the frays from the ties you severed
when you say "best friends" means friends forever

Is that what you call a getaway?!!
Tell me what you got away with!!
Cause I've seen more spine on jellyfish!!
I've seen more guts on eleven-year-old kids!!
Have another drink and drive yourself home!!
I hope there's ice on all the roads!!
And you can think of me when you forget your seatbelt
then when your head goes through the windshield!!

(I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do
(and I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to...
(I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to everything you do
(and I can't let you let me down again)
Everyone's caught on to...back to top
Secondary
And it comes down to you.
Never and ever.
Wrecked his day with looks and flirts and noontime in your shortest skirts.
Past the point of trying, I'm a dying breed.
Thank her for reminding me of all the things I've done completely wrong.
Stop these looks and letters.
This isn't for the better.
It's for the worse.
You're not my girl.
Stop the circulation to my legs and break my bones.
Dateless and late.
I'm better by myself at home.
What's the point of trying?
I'm dying here.
Secondary.
She laughs at every word I know came out completely wrong.
This is my last semester.
Brothers always come first.
At least until next winter.
But I'm sure that I'll be over this by then.
Better scenes... I wish she'd seen me.
Better off if I just let it be.
Better pretend it don't matter.
I'd be better of if I could have her.
Better days since the day I met her.
I better hope she got my letters.
Better off in two year stretches.back to top
Magazines
Laetitia
You destroy me
So I can see why
I feel so lonely
When you and me could be forever
Perfectly perfect together I know
Broken down in my dead bedroom
Stuttering to pictures of you
I know that you can always see me
I saw you staring through my TV last night

So I'll leave the door open all night
In case you decide you want to stop on by
Because you got to know
Who's been singing that song on the radio
The one that goes...

My friends all call me
Crazy cause I
Stay up late
Anticipating
And planning for the day I sweep you
Off your feet I'd never leave you alone
Laetitia
You got my hand shaking
I'm begging you to please stop breaking
My heart because I got the feeling
That you and I will never really get it on

So I'll leave the door open all night
In case you decide you want to stop on by
Because you got to know
Who's been singing that song on the radio
The one that goes...

Girl come to me
The only broken - hearted loser
You'll ever need
Or I'll be left alone forever with my magazines

Laetitia
You destroy me
So I can see why
I feel so lonely
When you and me could be forever
Perfectly perfect together I knowback to top
Soco Amaretto Lime
Passed out on the overpass
Sunday best and broken glass
Broken down from the bikes and bars
Suspended like spirits over speeding cars
You and me were kings over the parkway tonight
And tonight will go on forever while we
walk around this town like we own the streets
and stay awake through summer like we own the heat
Singing "everybody wake up(wake up)it's time to get down"
(everybody, everybody wake up its time to get down)
And when I pass the bottle back to Pete
on the overpass tonight, I bet we laugh

I'm gonna stay eighteen forever (cut me open)
So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned)
And we'll never miss a party (this offer stands forever)
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen (new haircut)
to anyone about anything (new bracelet)
cause it's all been done and it's all been said (eyeliner)
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get (wait forever)

The hell out of this town
Find some conversation
The low fule lights been on for days
It doesn't mean anyhting
I've got another 500 nother 500 miles
before we shut this engine down,
we shut it down

I'm gonna stay eighteen forever (cut me open)
So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned)
And we'll never miss a party (this offer stands forever)
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen (new haircut)
to anyone about anything (new bracelet)
cause it's all been done and it's all been said (eyeliner)
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get (wait forever)

(you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love)
Eighteen forever
(your stomachs filled up but you're starved for conversation)
So we can stay like this forever
(you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed)
And we'll never miss a party
(and your tearin up your photos cause you wanna forget... it's over)
cause we keep them going constantly
(you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love)
And we'll never have to listen
(your stomachs filled up but you're starved for conversation)
to anyone about anything cause it's all been done
(you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed)
and it's all been said
(and your tearin up your photos cause you wanna forget... it's over)
we're the coolest kids and we take what we can get

Just jealous cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous cause we're young and in love
