all John Mayer lyrics



Back to You
Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I tried to forget you
I tried to stay away
But it's too late

Over you
I'm never over
Over you
Something about you
It's just the way you move
The way you move me

I'm so good at forgetting
And I quit ever game I play
But forgive me, love
I can't turn and walk away

Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I walk with your shadow
I'm sleeping in my bed
With your silhouette

Should have smiled in that picture
If it's the last that I'll see of you
It's the least that you
Could not do

Leave the light on
I'll never give up on you
Leave the light on
For me too

Back to me
I know that it comes
Back to me
Doesn't it scare you
Your will is not as strong
As it used to beback to top
No Such Thing
Welcome to the real world
She said to me kind of condescendingly
Take a seat, take your life
Plot it out in black and white
Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
And the drama queens
I'd like to think the best of me
Is still hiding up my sleeve

They love to tell you stay inside the lines
But something's better on the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

So the good boys and girls take the so-called right track
Faded white hats grabbing the credits and making transfers
They read all the books but they can't find the answers
And all of our parents, they're getting older
I wonder if they've wished for anything better
While in their memories, tiny tragedies

They love to tell you stay inside the lines
But something's better on the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

I am invincible
I am invincible
I am invincible
As long as I'm alive

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

I just can't wait till my ten year reunion
I'm gonna bust down the double doors
And when I stand on these tables before you
You will know what all this time was forback to top
My Stupid Mouth
My stupid mouth,
Has got me in trouble.
I said too much again.
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see she was offended.
She said well anyway...
Just dying for a subject change.

Oh, it's another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said think before speaking
No filter in my head.
Oh, what's a boy to do?
I guess he better find one soon

We bit our lips. she looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the
Salt and pepper shaker.
And I could see clearly
An indelible line was drawn
Between what was good, what just
Slipped out and what went wrong.

Oh, the way she feels about me has changed.
Thanks for playing, try again.

How could I forget?

Mama said think before speaking
No filter in my head.
Oh, what's a boy to do?
I guess he better find one.

I'm never speaking up again. it only hurts me.
I'd rather be a mystery than she desert me.

Oh I'm never speaking up again.
Starting now

One more thing.
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard
But it's all because of this desire
I just wanna be liked, I just wanna be funny.
Looks like the jokes on me
So call me captain backfire

I'm never speaking up again it only hurts me.
I'd rather be a mystery than she desert me.

Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting nowback to top
Neon
Sky blue gets dark enough
To see the colors of the city lights
A trail of ruby red and diamond white
Hits her like a sunrise

She comes and goes
And comes and goes
Like no one can

Tonight she's out to lose herself
And find a high on peachtree street
From mixed drinks to techno beats
It's always heavy into everything

She comes and goes
And comes and goes
Like no one can
She comes and goes
And no one knows
She's slipping through my hands

She's always buzzin just like
Neon, neon, neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away

I can't be her angel now
You know it's not my place to hold her down
And it's hard for me to take a stand
When I would take her anyway I can

She comes and she goes
Like no one can
She comes and she goes
She's slipping through my hands

She's always buzzin just like
Neon, neon, neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away (away)

She comes and she goes
Like no one can
She comes and she goes
She's slippin through my hands

She's always buzzin just like
Neon, neon, neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns awayback to top
Victoria
Don't know why tori came by
But I could see by the look in her eyes
TorI'd been driving round the town for awhile
Playing with the thought of leaving

Don't know why tori just smiled
Mentioned something about how you were right
Must have been hard to see through the tears she was hiding
She said, I might not be seeing him soon,
Got a few things I've been waiting to do.

Hey, tori came by
Tori came by tonight
Hey, tori came by
She says to say goodbye

Looked outside at the car in the drive
And the suitcase on the back seat inside
Sure it's so she can't look out behind at the road
She said, I might not be seeing him soon,
Got a few things I've been waiting to do.

Hey, tori came by
Tori came by tonight
Hey, tori came by
She says to say goodbye

Don't look down
She seemed all right
You might be asking, where is tori tonight?
Somewhere out on the highway
I'm sure that she's fineback to top
Love Soon
I know you've been sworn
I read your complaint
You're needing someone older
And though I've been warned to live day by day
There's something taking over

Did you expect to kiss me one time
While looking at me with the same eyes ever again?
So come on and face it
So come on and face it
It's time that we say it

You can cross the line whenever you want to
I'm calling it love soon
Close your mind and waste some time if you have to
I'm calling it love soon
It's not about you now
It's what we are

Your mother complains that you need a man
You haven't mentioned me yet
And all of your friends don't know who I am
I've been your best kept secret

I understand I wasn't part of the plan
A dollar short, a minute early
But I am your man
So come on and face it
So come on and face it
It's time that we say it

You can cross the line whenever you want to
I'm calling it love soon
Close your mind and waste some time if you have to
I'm calling it love soon
It's not about you now
It's what we are

Let's bypass the bullshit and move on because
The minute hand moves faster than you think it does
And by no fault of yours and by no fault of mine
The bottom line is laying in the bed that we've been playing in tonight

Im calling it love soon
Im calling it love soon
You can cross the line whenever you want to
I'm calling it love soon
Close your mind and waste some time if you have to
I'm calling it love soon
It's not about you now
It's what we areback to top
Comfortable
I just remembered that time at the market
Snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart
And rolled down aisle five
You looked behind you to smile back at me
Crashed into a rack full of magazines
They asked us if we could leave

I can't remember what went wrong last september
Though I'm sure you'd remind me if you had to

Our love was comfortable and so broken in

I sleep with this new girl I'm still getting used to
My friends all approve,
Say she's gonna be good for you
They throw me high fives
She says the Bible is all that she reads
And prefers that I not use profanity
Your mouth was so dirty

Life of the party and she swears that she's artsy
But you could distinguish miles from coltrane

Our love was comfortable and so broken in
She's perfect
So flawless
Or so they say

She thinks I can't see the smile that she's faking
And poses for pictures that aren't being taken
I loved you
Grey sweatpants
No makeup
So perfect

Our love was comfortable and so broken in
She's perfect
So flawless
I'm not impressed
I want you backback to top
Quiet
Midnight
Lock all the doors
And turn out the lights
Feels like the end of the world
This sunday night

There's not a sound
Outside the snow's coming down
And somehow I can't seem to find
The quiet inside my mind

3:02
The space in this room
Has turned on me
And all my fears have cornered me here
Me and my tv screen

The volume's down
Blue lights are dancing around
And still, I can't seem to find
The quiet inside my mind

Daylight is climbing the walls
Cars start and feet walk the halls
The world awakes and now I am safe
At least by the light of dayback to top
