Fallin' Down
Do you know, where you want to go?
I ain't got time for you now.
Do you think, that I'll ever be?
Cuz all I ever wanted, so far gone.
And if I had my chance, I'd go along.

You're making me fall down,
I'm falling down again.
I wish you could fall down,
Can you catch me darling,
I'm home

Do you see, what you do to me?
You ain't got time for him now.
Do you think, that he'll ever be?
Cuz all I ever wanted, so far gone.
And if I had my chance, I'd go along.back to top
Lucky Star
If I could walk a straight mile,
I could write it down in shorthand, I could show you.
If you want me to.
And if I had an hourglass,
I'd save the grains of time I spent with you
That's what I'd do.
But I remember, you always said it could be great.
And I knew it could be.
Well there's a way you look at things,
That no one needs to know but you.
And you shared it with me.
Like every time the leaves would fall,
You promised me that they'd be back again.
And I believed in you.

You always said it could be great.
But I had no time too waste, now it seems that I've come too far.

As bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star.
Bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star.

Written down in hard-bound books,
The way things used to be, they ain't for me.
I'd swear they're all for you.
We said sugar, gramps said shoot,
Her mom said shit, I don't know what she'll do.
As if it's up to you.

As bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star.
Bright as you are don't get burned by your lucky star.
Your lucky star will burn ya.
Your lucky star will turn you 'round.
They're gonna turn you aroundback to top
Cuz You're Gone
You whispered in my mouth,
And I spit you words right back.
How good do you think I'll look,
When the words start to break and crack.

You beat your head upon your wall,
You disconnect yourself from it all.
Cuz you know that you're so beautiful and so untouchable,
And I want to get in so bad, and I don't know how.

Cuz your gone, and you ain't coming back.
Yeah you're gone, and you ain't coming back.

You held your hand so close,
And I just can't push you away.
I wished you could be my girl,
But you're stuck in your own world.

(repeat second)
(repeat third)

(repeat second)
(repeat third)

Yeah you're gone, and I wish you'd come back.back to top
Don't Worry
I called you up all night til mornin',
Left my house by noon today, and I saw you standing there.
No one spoke, but we both listened.
Heard every word you didn't say.
And the sunshine's all around us,
Smells like summer's on the way, and I saw you standing there.
Tell the story of a lifetime,
Tomorrow brings a brand new day.

Don't worry 'bout today, and the words that you said.
Don't worry 'bout today, shake the world from your head.
At least for a while.

You see the day keeps getting longer,
But my nights seem longer still, and my tv's off the air.
Watching repeats on my ceiling,
Another hour left to kill.back to top
Girl Right Next To Me
You changed my face,
I think I like it better now.
It doesn't matter anyhow, cuz that's the way it is.
You said hello,
Well where the hell you been?
I said I feel like I've been off to war,
And I may never be the same again.

I made my bed,
And now I can't sleep at night.
Cause I'm tossin and turnin you know, you know it ain't right.
I'd love to beg,
See, but I'm just too proud.
And I don't even know what to say, so I'm thinking out loud.

And when you dream 17,
I ain't there, so I don't care.
Cuz in all my dreams, I'm 23,
And she's the girl right next to me.
See that girl right next to me.

I lie in my bed,
You're running through my head.
Going over and over and over, the things that you said.
I'm caught in a trap,
I'll run like hell right back to you.
Cuz I'm sober with you and you know it beats drinking alone.back to top
Domino
If you never had it then,
You don't know how bad it is.
There is nothing like it, well,
Needless talk then, I can tell. here comes the day, I sit and wait.
Always, always something.
The bills keep coming, the car ain't running.
Now I'm coming home again.
Another day,
Oh, the mailman's on his way
Just sit and wait.
Always pondering my fate too late,
Another day goes.
(background):
Dominoes are falling still, as I know they always will
Dominoes a test of will, dominoes

I bought them from you yesterday,
Little ? ? ? that you have made.
No one minds I can tell.
Seems I've hit the ones you shall.back to top
We Are The Normal
It's a beautiful day
I heard everybody say
The sun shines down for all of us
Just the same
You know I like the rain
That ain't so obvious
It's a beautiful sight
I guess everybody's right
This day belongs to all of us
Even still I like my winter chilled
That ain't so obvious

We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why
We are the normal
We live and we die
With no reason why

It's a beautiful life
And I got it in my sights
And that ain't for all of us
It's a beautiful sound
When my life comes crashin down
That ain't so obvious
It's a beautiful sin
And I'm doin it again
And that ain't for all of us
It's a beautiful life
And I got it in my sights
Ain't that so obviousback to top
String Of Lies
I've got no politics, no influential friend or two.
I've got ideas, but it's nothing I picked up at school.
I might be running, but I'm never running back to you.
And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect your reply.
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie.

I had to wait so long, the weeks and months that passed me by.
You've got no power and my situations don't apply.
You ask me how I am, I lie and say I'm doing fine.
And with your sugar-sweetened alibis, there was a truth I never knew.
And all the attitude you gave me, it's coming back to you.

String of lies, it's always compromise with you.
String of lies, you know there's nothing left to do.
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you.
And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect your reply.
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie.back to top
Another Second Time Around
Happy, smilin', cryin' upwards to my past,
I guess those stormy gray skies simply couldn't last.
And now I find myself a-tugging at your dress.
The fun of holding you down, or seeing you frown is never gonna pass.

Somewhere there's a place a soul can never go,
Gray-like stormy skies I hoped you didn't know.
All our postcards full of things I won't forget.
And now it's coming down, that laughing clown is all I ever get.

Another second time around.
I've been runnin' from ya
Another second time around.
Another second, one more second time,
I waited for ya, another second time around.

Couldn't help myself,
I felt like everything was gonna pass.
It was an awkward time,
I hoped it wouldn't, hoped it couldn't last.

And I didn't know exactly what to say,
About the things you saw me do my evil way.
And I know you're lyin', cryin' in your bed.
Well I'm all tired out, so wired out, it's ringing in my head.back to top
Stop The World
You need someone to hold you,
You need something that you ain't been getting.
Yeah, I could be the one,
To tell you what to do, but it don't mean nothing.
And you're holding on forever,
But that something just ain't true.
I'm just like you,
And I know, it's what I'd do.
Here I go.

Cuz I could stop the world, cuz I love you.
I could stop the world, and I don't want to.
I could stop the world, and I won't.
Cuz it ain't enough.

You had another bad day,
You let me know that you just can't take it.
I've given up on you,
You live in truth and I know I can't fake it.
Cuz the stars you see,
Are on a dirty sidewalk.
And they ain't for wishing new
If they don't come true.
And I know, it's what I'd do.
Here I go.

I'm not too young for the world.
And I can't change for the world.
I don't care for the world.
(in back)i don't need to stop the world.
It don't make sense, the world.back to top
Already There
I look outside my window,
Everything was blanketed in white.
The neighbors pushing cars,
Out from snow that fell on us last night.
I started thinking,
Bout the things we used to do when we were young.
Back when things were simple,
Getting up was fun.

I couldn't care, cuz I'm already there.
I'm already there, and I'm ready there.

Turn around and face the clock,
I'd sit and watch, as time went hoppin' by.
I'm still growing up,
My friends are growing old before my eyes.
Count the stars above,
Wonder when the heavens will subside.
Knowing our two worlds,
Will someday just collide.

Just a boy who's young at heart,
His smile was a bit like yours today.
Had a wife, a kid, some strife,
Never had to go astray.
Happiness evolved,
Life was in full swing,
At 17, all the things he wanted,
Were things he'd never seen.

It don't seem fair, cuz I'm already there.
I'm already there, and I'm ready there.back to top
On The Lie
He burnt down the house one night,
He had a loaded six-pack gun.
He said that jesus christ was just like a cop,
You know, you never know when they'll come.
She said every day above ground,
Was another dream come true.
He said I'd hang and swap clichés all night,
But I'm not in love with you.

And I never got serious,
Til everything went black.
And I ain't so curious,
That I'm ever going back.

On the lie.

He said, man, you want to be elvis.
I said I ain't dying face down.
He said you've got to die facing up in the world,
Cuz there's too many holes around.
He asked what was wrong with me,
He said I looked like a hollywood girl.
I said that hollywood can fall into the ocean, man,
Cuz it's the ugliest place in the whole wide world.

On the lie, he was.
On the lie, she was.
It's always a stinkin' lieback to top
Close Your Eyes
I wish I had a saxophone,
I'd play the blues til you came home
With a little sadness in your eye.
Now that all my time was spent,
In you walk, you're heaven sent
Thinkin' bout all the night's you've cried.

Had a certain passion,
And I had surly dreams,
A load of viscous actions,
Don't close your eyes to me.

Don't close your eyes to me.

I wish I had a camera lens
To film the things my mind had said,
Before they reached my mouth
And got all bent.
Looking at the skies of blue,
All day long I think of you,
Even after all the shit we've been through.back to top
So Far Away
Why do you stare me down?
Am I wrong, should I turn and kiss the ground?
And I never felt that way
I ain't the one and you know I ain't from such a place

And I didn't get those things
Things that you can't grow
You say that it's all my fault
And I don't need to know

Tell me something I don't know
And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me
You say that it's all been said before
Now I find that there's something I don't know

And I hate your attitude
I ain't scared at all
Cuz it don't matter what you do
And I'll turn around to see the truth
You're tearing it down, ya you're bringing it down
And it's all on you
Am I wrong
I don't know
And I say that
If you break enough glass
And there's no one to hear in your heart full of hate
But your mind's full of fear, let it go

So far away (3x)back to top
