Clarity
I worry
I weight three times, my body

I worry
I throw my fear around

But this morning, there's a calm I can't explain
The rock candy's melted, only diamonds now remain

By the time I recognize this moment, this moment will be gone
But I will bend the light, pretending that it somehow lingered on

And I will wait to find
If this will last forever
And I will pay no mind
If this will last forever

And I will wait to find
That it won't
And it won't because it can't
It just can't

It's not supposed to

Was there a second of time I looked around
Did I sail through or drop my anchor down
Was anything enough to kiss the ground
And say I'm here now, and she is here now

So much wasted in the afternoon
So much sacred in the month of June
How 'bout you

And I will wait to find
If this will last forever
And I will wait to find
That it won't and it won't, and it won't
And I will pay no mind
Worried bout the rainy weather
And I will waste no time
Livin' in our lives togetherback to top
Bigger Than My Body
this song is the best i hope you enjoy cause i love this song (LAKERS SUCK!!!!!!)


This is a call to the color blind
This is an IOU
Stranded behind a horizon line
Try to be something true

Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Chorus:
Someday I'll fly
Someday I'll soar
Someday I'll be
Something much more
Cause I'm bigger than my body
Gives me credit for


Why is it not the time?
What is there more to learn?
I've shed this skin I've been tripping in
And I've never quite returned

Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Chorus

Cause I'm bigger than my body now

Maybe I'll tangle in the power lines
And it might be over in a second's time
But I'll gladly go down in a flame
If the flame's what it takes to remember my name
To remember my name, oh

Yes, I'm grounded
Got my wings clipped
I'm surrounded by
All this pavement
Guess I'll circle
While I'm waiting
For my fuse to dry

Chorus

Cause I'm bigger than my body
Bigger than my body
Bigger than my body nowback to top
Something's Missing
I'm not alone, I wish I was
‘cause than I'd know, I'm down because,
I couldn't find, a friend around
To love me like, they do right now.
They do right now.

A desert frown, the shopping malls
I search for joy, then plot it out.
And all is well, I can't complain.
It is just a game, it's just a phase.

And I can't tell you just what's keeping me down.
Something's missing,
And I don't know how to fix it.
Something's missing,
And I don't know what it is, no I don't know what it is
I don't.

And autumn comes, it doesn't last.
It just walks in, with a bat to lash.
And you never know, when it starts
Until there's fog inside the glass around your summer heart…

I can't put my finger on what's keeping me down.
Something's missing,
And I don't know how to fix it.
Something's missing,
And I don't know what it is, no I don't know what it is now.

I can't be sure that this state of mine, is not of my own desire
I wish there was an over the counter test, for loneliness.
For loneliness like this.

Something's missing,
And I don't know how to fix it.
Something's missing,
And I don't know what it is, no I don't know what it is.

Friends, check. money, check.
Guitar, check. happy home, check. microphone, check.

And I don't know what it is, no I don't know what it is
At all…back to top
New Deep
I'm so alive
I'm so enlightened** I can barely survive
A night in my mind
So I've got a plan
I'm gonna find out just how boring I am
And have a good time
'Cause ever since I tried?, trying not to find
Every little meaning in my life
It's been fine, I've been cool
With my new golden rule

Now it's the new deep
Down with the old me
Talk is the same cheap
It's been

Is there a guy
Why is he waiting
Don't you figure it out
When he knows my address
And look at the stars
Don't they remind you
Just how feeble we are
Well it used to I guess
'Cause ever since I tried, trying not to find
Every little meaning in my life
It's been fine, I've been cool
With my new golden rule

Now it's the new deep
Down with the old me
Talk is the same cheap
It's been

I'm a new man
I wear a new cologne
And you wouldn't know me
If your eyes were closed
I know what you'd say
This will last longer than the rest of the day
But you're wrong this time
You're wrong

Now it's the new deep
Down with the old me
I'm over the analyzing tonight
Stop trying to figure it out
(you try to figure, you try to figure it out)
It will only bring you down
You know I used to be the backporch poet with my book of lines always open
No and all the time I'm trying*
Never gonna find the perfect rhyme
For heavier thingsback to top
Come Back to Bed
Still is the life of your room
When you're not inside
And all of your things
Tell the sweetest storyline

Your tears on these sheets
And your footsteps are down the hall

Tell me what I did
I can't find where the moment went wrong at all

You can be mad in the morning
I'll take back what I said
Just don't leave me alone here
It's cold baby

Come back to bed

What will this fix
You know you're not a quick forgive
And I won't sleep through this
I survive on the breath you are finished with

It's cold baby

Come back to bed

You can be mad in the morning
Or the afternoon instead
But don't leave me
98 and 6 degrees of seperation from you, baby
Come back to bed

Don't hold your love over my headback to top
Home Life
Think I'm gonna stay home
Have myself a homelife
Sittin' in the slow-mo
And listenin' to the daylight
I am not a nomad
I am not a rocket man
I was born a house cat
By the SLIGHT of my mother's hand
Think I'm gonna stay home

I want to live in the center of a circle
I want to live on the side of a square
I used to be in my ?? SCENE
You'll never find me 'cause my name isn't there
Homelife
I'm holding out for the homelife
My homelife

I wanna see the ending
I wanna learn a last name
Finish on a Friday
And sit in traffic on the highway
See I refuse to believe
That my life's gonna be
Just some string of incompletes
Never to lead me to anything remotely close to a homelife
I'm holding out for A homelife
My homelife

I can tell you this MUCH, I will marry just once
And if it doesn't work out, I'll give her half of my stuff
It's fine with me
We said eternity
I will go to my grave, with the LOVE that I gave
Not just a melody line on a radio wave
It dissipates
And soon evaporates
Homelife doesn't change

I want to live in the center of a circle
I want to live on the side of a square
I'd love to WALK TO WHERE we both can talk
But I've got to leave it 'cause my ride is here
And my homelife
You take a homelife
You keep a homelife
Come back for the homelife I promise
Homelife I promise
Life

Split Screen Sadness
And I don't where you went when you left me but
It says here in the water, you must be gone by now
I can tell somehow

One hand on the trigger of the telephone
Wonderin when the call comes, when you say it's all right
You got your heart right

Maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and
Wait on your porch 'til you come back home, alright
I can't find a fight
We share the sadness
Split screen sadness

Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight
Two wrongs make it all alright tonight

All you need is love is a lie cause
We had a love but we still said goodbye
Now we're tired, battered fighters
And it stings when it nobody's fault
Cause there's nothing to blame
At the drop of your name, it's only the air you took
And the breath you left

So maybe I'll sleep inside my coat and
Wait on the porch til you come back home, alright
I can't find the fight
So I'll check the weather wherever you are
Cause I wanna know if you can see the stars tonight
Might be my only right

We share the sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
Split screen sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
We share the sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
Split screen sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)

I called... because... I just... need to feel you on the line
Don't hang up this time
And I know well it's me you called it over but
I still wish you fought me 'til my dying day
Don't let me get away

Cause I can't wait to figure out what's wrong with me
So I can say this is the way that I used to be
There's no substitute for time
Oh for the sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
Split screen sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
We share the sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)
Split screen sadness
(two wrongs make it all alright tonight)

Oh in the sadness, it's alright, it's alright
Oh in the sadness, it's alright, it's alright
Oh in the sadness, it's alright, it's alright
Oh in the sadness, it's alright, it's alrightback to top
Daughters
I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world
She's just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change

I've done all I can
To stand on the steps with my heart in my hand
Now I'm starting to see
Maybe it's got nothing to do with me

Fathers be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers, who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters too

Oh you see that skin
It's the same shes been standing in
Since the day she saw him walking away
Now she's left
Cleaning up the mess he made

So fathers be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers, who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters too

Boys you can break
You'll find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
And boys will soldier on
But boys would be gone without the warmth for a woman's good, good heart

On behalf of every man, looking out for every girl
You are the god, and the weight of the world

So fathers be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers, who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters too

So mothers be good to your daughters too

So mothers be good to your daughters tooback to top
Only Heart
Do not waste this evening, baby I'm begging you
Your big imagination's playing its tricks on you
You think my up and leave is something I'm gonna do
Feel my chest when I look at you...

Baby you, you've got my only heart
Yeah, you've got my only heart
Yeah, you've got my only, only, heart

So hard to be so far out living our separate lives
You phone must really broken - I tried your number twice
And if you need confirmation, baby I understand
It's alright if you want me to tell you...

You, you've got my only heart
Yeah, you've got my only heart
Yeah, you've got my only, only, heart

You live like you hedge on the whole thing
I adore you but, there's a hole in the cup that should hold my love
(hold my love)
If you let, if you let, if you let me leave
I swear, I never will
Oh remember now you...

You've got my only heart
Yeah, you've got my only heart
Yeah, you've got my only heart
Yeah, you've got my only heartback to top
Wheel
People have the right to fly
And when it gets compromised
Their hearts say "Move along"
Their minds say "Gotcha heart"
Let's move it along
Let's move it along

And airports
See it all the time
With someone's last goodbye
Blends in with someone's sigh
Cause someone's coming home
In hand a single rose

And that's the way this wheel keeps working now
That's the way this wheel keeps working now
And I won't be the last
No I won't be the last,
To love her

And you can't build a house of leaves
And live like it's an evergreen
It's just a season thing
It's just this thing that seasons do

And that's the way this wheel keeps working now
That's the way this wheel keeps working now
And you won't be the first
No you won't be the first
To love me

You can find me, if you ever want to give
I'll be around the bend
I'll be around the bend
I'll be around,
I'll be around
And if you never stop when you wave goodbye
You just might find if you give it time
You will wave hello again
You just might wave hello again

And that's the way this wheel keeps working now
That's the way this wheel keeps working now

You can't love too much, one part of it (repeat then fade)

I believe that my life's gonna see
The love I give
Return to me
I believe that my life's gonna see
The love I give
Return to me
I believe that my life's gonna see
The love I give
Return to me [repeat 1x]back to top
