Hanginaround
She sat right down on the sofa
And says where have you been
I've been waiting for you
And last night I had something so good
These days get so long and I have nothing to do

I've been hanging around this town on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way too long
I've been hanging around this town on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way too long

We spent all day getting sober
Just hiding from the daylight
And watching tv
It just look a lot better in the blue light
Well you know I gotta get out
But I'm stuck so tight
Weighed by the chains that keep me

I've been hanging around this town on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way too long
I've been hanging around this town on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way too long

This girl listens while the band plays
She says where have you been
Been laying right here on the floor
I got tall this time to be waiting for what is mine
To be hated for what I am after the light has faded

I've been hanging around this town on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way too long
I'v e been hanging around this twon on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way too long

I've been hanging around this town on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way too long
I've been hanging around this town on a corner
I've been bummin' around this old town for way, way, way too longback to top
Four Days
All I want is something good
It gets harder every time
She is leaving here tonight
Take a breath
Take your time
Spread your wings and rise

Make a mark upon the wall
Paint your face and pass the time
Close your eyes and she ascends
Hold your breath
Ease your mind
Forty thousand times

Time fade into the night
They descend and then they climb
Feathers falling through the night
Have you seen ohio rise
It has been four days and nights

All I want is something fine
It gets harder every time
She is sleeping far away
Take a breath
Take your time
Spread your wings and rise

Rise through the black ohio sky
They descend and then they climb
Feathers falling through the night
Have you seen ohio rise
It has been four days and nightsback to top
All My Friends
Thought I might get a rocket ride
When I was a child
But it was a lie
That I told myself when I needed something good

At 17 had a better dream
Now I'm 33 and it isn't me
But I'd think of something better if I could

All my friends and lovers
Will leave me behind
And I'm still looking for a girl
One way or another
I'm just hoping to find a way
A way to put my feet out in the world

Caught some grief from a falling leaf
As she tumbled to the dirty ground
And said I should have put her back there if I could

Well everyone needs a better day
And I'm trying to find me a better way
To get through the things I do and the things I should

All my friends and lovers
Will leave me alone
To try to have a little fun
One way or another
I just wish I had known
To go out walking in the sun
To find out if you were the one

Do you wanna come a little closer now
[? ]
Can you see her, waiting there
Can you see her, she's almost there
Can you see her, waiting there for someone like me

Well all you want is a beauty queen
But not a superstar
But every body's dream machine
All you want is a place to lay your head
You go to sleep dreamin' how you would
Be a different kind if you thought you could
But you come awake the way you are instead

All my friends and lovers
They shine like the sun
Well I just turn and walk away
One way or another
I'm not comin' undone
I'm just waiting for the day

All my friendsback to top
High Life
Such a life
Such a life
Such a life
[? ]

All my friends got flowers in their eyes
But I got none this season
All of last year's blooms have gone and died
Time doesn't give a reason
Hey maybe you ask yourself sometimes what you need to be forgiven
Every thing that you've ever done wrong is the reason that I'm driven
Straight to tears

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I get me ends and my beginings mixed up too
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two

[speaking] it's just like answers
That come in small packages
With gold on them

Waiting for the trains that just never come
Beginning to believe in
The disappearing nature of the people we have been
We have begun to change
Into the worst kind of people
So what kind of apologies?
No apologies
This apology doesn't describe
The way it feels to feel for you
Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I find myself slowly disappearing too
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might want to help me to remain with you

I just wanna stay for a little while
I wanna stay for a little while
Oh, come on, come on, come on, come on
Cause there's a night life just falling down on me
I just feel like a change
But if the southern summer sea of flowers
Won't bloom without the rain
But oh this desert life, this high life
Here at the dying of the day
I wasn't made for the scene, baby
But I was made in this scene, baby
It's just my way
I don't wanna go home alone
I wanna come on home to you

Waiting here for you
Wanting to tell you
How I line my sky with all the silver I can use
Just the way you do
I thought if I told you
You might want to stay for just another day or two

[speaking] isn't that just like disappearing into the sum of yourself
And the person you are disappearing into
It's like one plus one equals nothing at all
One plus two equals nothing at all
One plus me equals nothing at all
One plus you equals one plus you equals you and you and you and you and
Nothing at all
Nothing at all [repeated]back to top
Colorblind
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (repeat 3 times)
I am taffy stuck and tongue tied
Stutter shook and uptight
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (repeat 3 times)
I am fine
I am covered in skin
No one gets to come in
Pull me out from inside
I am folded and unfolded and unfolding
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready (repeat 3 times)
I am fine (repeat 3 times)back to top
I Wish I Was a Girl
The devil's in the dreamin'
He tells you I'm not sleepin'
In my hotel room alone

With nothing to believe in
You dive into the traffic rising up
And it's so quiet
You're surprised and then you wake

For all the things you're losing
You might as well resign yourself to try and make a change
And I'm going down to hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain

I wish I was a girl
So that you could believe me
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep
I wish for all the world
That I could say
Hey, elizabeth, you know I'm doing all right
These days

The devil's in the dreamin'
You see yourself descending
From the building to the ground

And you watch the sky receding
And you spin to see the traffic
Rising up and it's so quiet
And you're surprised and then you wake

For all the things I'm losing
I might as well resign myself to try and make a change
And I'm going down to hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain

I wish I was a girl
So that you could believe me
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep
I wish for all the world
That I could say, hey, elizabeth,
You know I'm doing all right these days

And one of these dreams
You forgive me
It makes me think of the bad decisions
That keep you at home
How could anyone else have changed
But these are wrong conclusions
That leave you alone
How could everyone rearrange
How could everyone else have changed
What I see
I believe

For all the things I'm losing
I might as well resign myself to try and make a change
And I'm going down to hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things
That they find crawling round my brain

I wish I was a girl
So that you could believe me
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep
I wish for all the world
That I could say, hey, elizabeth,
You know I'm doing all right these days

Well I can't sleep at night [repeated]back to top
Speedway
I get so nervous I'm shaking
Get's so I got no pride at all
Gets so bad but I just keep coming back for more
Guess I just get off on that stuff

Thinkin' about taking some time
Thinkin' about leaving soon

I got some things I can't tell anyone
Got some things I just can't say
They're the kind of things no one knows about
I just need somebody to talk to me

I'm thinkin' about leaving tomorrow
I'm thinkin' about being on my own
Think I been wasting my time
I'm thinkin' about getting out
I'm thinkin' about getting out

In all this time, the bottom line's
You don't know how much I feel
You say you see
But I don't agree
Don't know, don't know how I feel

Just trying to get myself some gravity
You're just trying to get me to stay
Sometimes I sit here looking down upon los angeles
Sometimes I'm floating away

I'm thinkin' about breaking myself
I'm thinkin' about getting back home
I think I been waiting for way too long
Thinkin' bout getting out
Thinkin' bout getting out
Thinkin' bout getting outback to top
