Futures
I, I always believed in futures
I hope for better in November
Try the same booth, same lucky numbers
It could be a cold night for a lifetime
Hey now, you can't keep singing endlessly
My darling, how long until this sun burns me?

Say hello to good times
Trade up all the fast lines
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely

I, I always could count on futures
And things would look up, they'd look up
Why, so hard to find a balance
Between living decent and the cold and real
Hey now, what is it you think you see?
My darling, now's the time to disgaree

Say hello to good times
Trade up all the fast lines
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely

Hey now, the past is told by those who live
My darling, what matters is what hasn't been
Hey now, we're wide awake and we're thinking
My darling, believe your votes can mean something

Say hello to good times
Trade up all the fast lines
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completely
We close our eyes while the nickel and dime take the streets completelyback to top
Just Tonight...
I was scared but once I thought "I gotta let it go"
Everything she said to me I guess I oughta know
We're all tired of talk when it comes to shove
Put up, put out or stay at home.

Never be the same, never feel this way again.
I give you anything but you want pain.
A little water please, I taste you all over my teeth
And never again, just tonight, ok

All at once the music stopped, the feeling ran away
An ugly picture of me and you, but nothing I can change
Now now what happens with the lights back on
The less you know the more you want (you want, you want)

Chrous x3:
Never be the same, never feel this way again.
I give you anything but you want pain.
A little water please, I taste you all over my teeth
And never again, just tonight, okback to top
Work
If you only once but let me
only just one time
Then be happy with the consequence
with whatever going to happen tonight.

Don't think were not serious
wheres' it ever not
(for) love we make is givin' its take
I'm game to play along.


[CHORUS]
All I can say
I should have said
Can we take a ride
get out of this place while we still have time
(Ooh Ooh Aa Aa oh) (Ooh Ooh Aa Aa oh)


All the best DJs are saving
the slowest song for last
When the dance is through, its me and you
'Cmon would it really be so bad?

The things we think might be the same
But I won't fly for more (I won't fly for more)
It's just not me to wear it on my sleeve
count on that for sure.

[CHORUS]
All I can say
I should have said
Can we take a ride
get out of this place while we still have time

Do you wanna take a ride
get out of this place while we still have time
Yeah we still have time
(Ooh Ooh Aa Aa oh) (Ooh Ooh Aa Aa oh)
(Ooh Ooh Aa Aa oh) (Ooh Ooh Aa Aa oh)

Can't say I was never wrong
But some blame rests on you
Work and play they're never okay
to mix the way we do

[CHORUS]
All that I can say
I should have said
Can we take a ride
get out of this place while we still have time

Do you wanna take a ride
get out of this place while we still have time
Yeah we still have time
(Ooh Ooh Aa Aa oh) (Ooh Ooh)back to top
Kill
Band: Jimmy Eat World



well Youíre just across the street
Looks a mile to my feet
I want to go to you
Funny how Iím nervous still
Iíve always been the easy kill
I guess I always will

Could it be that everything goes around by chance
Or only one way that it was meant to be
You kill me
You always know the perfect thing to say
hey hey hey hey
I know what I should do but I just canít walk away

I can picture your face well
From the bar in my hotel
I wish Iíd go to you
I pick up put down the phone
Like your favorite heatmiser song goes
"Itís just like being alone"

Oh, god please donít tell me that this has been in vain
I need answers for what all the waiting Iíve done means
You kill me
Youíve got some nerve but canít face your mistakes
I know what I should do but I just canít turn away

So go on, love
Leave while thereís still hope for escape
Got to take what you can these days
Thereís so much ahead
And so much regret
I know what you want to say
I know it but I canít help feeling differently
I loved you
And I shouldíve said it
But tell me
Just what has it ever meant

I canít help it baby
This is who I am
Sorry but I canít just go turn off how I feel
You kill me
You build me up just to watch me break
I know what I should do but I just canít walk awayback to top
The World You Love
I've got a story
It's almost finished
Now all I need is someone to tell it to
Maybe that's you
Our time is borrowed and spent to freely
Every minute I have needs to be made up
But how?
I'm looking for a nice way to say I'm out
I want out

I fall asleep with my friends around me
Only place I know I feel safe
I'm goingto call this home
The open road is still miles away
Hey, nothing serious
We still have our fun
Oh, We had it once
Windows opoen and close that's just how it goes

Don't it feel like sunshine after all?
The world we loved forever gone
We're only just as happy
As everyone else seems to think we are

I'm in love with the ordinary
I need a simple space
And rest my head, everything gets clear
I'm a little ashamed for asking
But just a little helps, It gets me straight again
Helps me get over it over it
(Helps me get over it over it)
It might seem like a dream but it's real to me

Don't it feel like sunshine after all?
The world we loved forever gone
We're only just as happy
As everyone else seems to think we are

You should see the canals are freezing
You should see me high
You should just be here
Be with me here
It doesn't seem there's hope for me
I let you down
But I won't give in now, not for any amount

Don't it feel like sunshine after all?
The world we loved forever gone
We're only just as happy as everyone else thinks
Now, don't that feel like sunshine after all?
The world we loved forever gone
We're only just as happy
As everyone else seems to think we are
We areback to top
Pain
I don't feel the way I've ever felt
I know
I'm gonna smile and not get worried
I try but it shows

Anyone can make what I have built
And better now
Anyone can find the same white pills
It takes my pain away

It's a lie. A kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything but bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Never mind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me

I never thought I'd walk away from you
I did
But it's a false sense of accomplishment
Every time I quit

Anyone can see my every flaw
It isn't hard
Anyone can say they're above this all
It takes my pain away

It's a lie. A kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything but bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Never mind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me

I can't let it bother me

It takes my pain away

It's a lie. A kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything but bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Never mind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother meback to top
Drugs or Me
got the new album, i like this song....

stay with me
youíre the one I need
you make the hardest things
seem easy
keep my heart
somewhere drugs donít go
where the sunshine slows
always keep me close

if only you could see the stranger the next to me
you promise
you promise that youíre done
but I cant tell you from the drugs

donít let go
weíll dig a great big hole
down an endless hole,
weíll both go
youíre so blind!
you canít save me this time
hope comes from inside
and I feel so low tonight

if only you could see the stranger the next to me
you promise
you promise that youíre done
but I cant tell you from the drugs
I wish that you could see
this face in front of me
youíre sorry, you swear it: youíre done

I need your hands to pull me up
take the wheel out from me
take me so far

keep my heart
somewhere drugs donít go
where the sunshine slows
always keep me close

keep rockin

Polaris
I'll say it straight and plain
I know I've made mistakes
I've always been afraid
I've always been afraid

A thousand nights or more
I travel east and north
Please answer the door

Can you tell me
You say that love goes anywhere
In your darkest time, it's just enough to know its there
When you go, I'll let you be
But you're killing everything in me

Get down on your knees
Whisper what I need
Something pretty
Something pretty
I feel that when I'm old
I'll look at you and know
The world was beautiful

Then you tell me
You say that love goes anywhere
In your darkest time, it's just enough to know it's there
When you go, I'll let you be
But you're killing everything in me

I'm done there's nothing left to show
Try but can't let go
Are you happy where you're standing still?
Do you really want the sugar pill?
I'll wake up tomorrow and I'll start
To another, it feels so hard
As a train approaches, getting on
As I'm sure your kiss remains employed
Am I only dreaming?

You say that love goes anywhere
In your darkest time, it's just enough to know it's there
When you go, I'll let you be
But you're killing everything in me
When you go, I'll let you be
But you're killing everything in meback to top
Nothingwrong
Hold them down our bleeding suspects
(Just because, just 'cause, just who are you?)
Like candle light, burn burn burn, baby
(Burn, burn, whose turn, Who gets a taste today?)

[Chorus]
We've done nothing wrong,
But we've done nothing
We can't look away,
But we're just looking
It's second nature to say,
Hey hey hey, we've done nothing wrong!

Turn them off, our blacklist singers
(Don't ask why, don't cry, don't make a scene)
A forty-five, spin spin spin, give in
(Spin spin, who wins, who's not afraid to play?)

We've done nothing wrong,
But we've done nothing!
We can't look away,
But we're just looking in!
It's second nature to say,
Hey hey hey, we've done nothing but -
Nothing but take what's handed down
Said nothing but words approved to shout
We wanna know that we own the cake we're eating
Spit it out! Out, out...

Hold them down (burn, burn)
Hold them down our bleeding suspects
Turn them off (turn, turn)
Turn them off our blacklist singers

[Chorus]

We've done nothing wrong!
We've done nothing wrong!back to top
Night Drive
Love this song

(ooooooooooo ooooooooooo)
Lay back baby and we'll do this right
There's blankets in back we can use
I'll start the car but we'll stay in park
The cold can kill us before fumes

Now's the right time
For a good song
Get something to say what i can't
Do you feel bad?
Like i feel bad?
Pour us a road, we'll both drink and drive

Kiss me with your cherry lipstick
Never wash you off my face
Hit me i can take your cheap shot
Leave you with the love we made

(ooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooo)

Come alive on the driver's side
So close i taste your breath
Your lips go dry, but they're sweet inside
Wine must go right to your head
Itd be easy if you get mad
The three fingers point back to you
We could stay here
Stay out all night
No one will know us and the moonlight!

Kiss me with your cherry lipstick
Never wash you off my face
Hit me i can take your cheap shot
Leave you with the love we made
I set my watch by a street-side clock
A needle in echo groove
You pierce my heart like a willing arm
Your ticking makes my blood move
Theres no way out
This fade out
Be Happy to Get what you do
Make him notice with both fists
Cause quitting alone will never get you dry!!!!!!!!!

(oooooooo ooooooooo)
(nah nah nah nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah)_
Never.... get you dry!!!!!

Give me everything youve got now!
I don't feel a single thing!
Drag me out into the cold rain!
Let it hover over me!


Kiss me with your cherry lipstick
(nah nah nah nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah)
Never wash you off my face
(nah nah nah nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah)
Hit me i can take your cheap shot
(nah nah nah nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah)
Leave you with the love we made
(nah nah nah nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah)

Hit me i can take your cheap shot
Leave you with the love we made

Hit me i can take your cheap shot
Leave you with the love we made


love it! Futures rules!!!

23
"23"
JIMMY EAT WORLD

I felt for sure last night
That once we said goodbye
No one else will know these lonely dreams
No one else will know that part of me
I'm still driving away
And I'm sorry every day
I won't always love these selfish things
I won't always live...
Not stopping...

It was my turn to decide
I knew this was our time
No one else will have me like you do
No one else will have me, only you

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

Amazing still it seems
I'll be 23
I won't always love what I'll never have
I won't always live in my regrets

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine

You'll sit alone forever
If you wait for the right time
What are you hoping for?
I'm here I'm now I'm ready
Holding on tight
Don't give away the end
The one thing that stays mine...back to top
