I Do
When I'm done with thinking
Then I'm done with you
When I'm done with crying
Then I'm done with you
When I feel so tired
Then I'm done with you
Everybody feels this way sometimes
Everybody feels this way

And I do
You can't hear it
But I do
You can't hear it
But I do

You're trying to convince me
That what I've done's not right
I get so frusterated
I stay up every night
You ask me for an answer
And I'm so tired and I'm up in the air
Everybody feels this way sometimes
Everybody feels this way

And I do
You can't hear it
But I do
You can't hear it
But I'm feeling this way
Just because you say

I will be ignored
I will be denied
I could be erased
I could be brushed aside
I will get scared
And I will get shoved down
But I feel like I do
Because you push me around

I'm starting to ignore you
I've doubted you so long
I'm tired of overthinking
I know you don't belong
Now I'm asking questions
No one pushes me around
Everybody feels this way sometimes
Everybody feels this way

And I do
You can't hear it
But I do
You don't seem angry
But I do
I doback to top
Falling in Love
She wanted to be a cowboy
She was shootin' 'em down
She was tramping around

He walked in crooked
With the clear blue eyes
"There's a nice pool at my motel
You wanna go for a swim?"
That night he moved in

The time between meeting
And finally leaving
Is sometimes called falling in love
The time between meeting
And finally leaving
Is sometimes called falling in love

At night she'd wait for the sound
Of his feet on the doormat
The sound of his hand on the doorknob
The sound of her heart
Beating in her head
He'd go out playing nickel slots
Cause he knew he'd lose
She didn't know, so she couldn't choose

One night while sleeping alone in her bed
The phone rang, she woke up
She sat up and said
"What time is it? What time is it?"

"Well it's 5:30 here and it's 2:30 there
And I won't be home tonight" he said

The time between meeting and finally leaving
Is sometimes called falling in love
The time between meeting and finally leaving
Is sometimes called falling in love

Now she sits in a booth in a diner
Waiting for someone to take her order
Waiting for someone to come in and sit down

She rubs the smudge off the photograph
And puts it back into her purse
The grey sky was romantic
Cause he was holding her hand
He was her man

The time between meeting and finally leaving
Is sometimes called falling in love
The time between meeting and finally leaving
Is sometimes called falling in love
Some times called falling in love

She wanted to be a cowboy
She was shootin' em down
She was tramping aroundback to top
Truthfully
This isn't what I like to call flattery
But I know that I believe that I've found what's true
That I've found what's you

Truthfully I
I'm finding finally
Truthfully you
You helped me find at last
Truthfully we
Are finding out what's true
And Truthfully I
am finding out what's you

Surprise, cause I was flying the plane
Surprise, cause now I'm smiling again
Surprise, cause you showed up with your parachute
Surprise, I'm kinda happy that you showed up

Truthfully I
I'm finding finally
Truthfully you
You helped me find at last
Truthfully we
Are finding out what's true
And truthfully I
am finding out what's you

Truthfully, I really can't explain
I'm floating I'm smiling again
Truthfully I can't ignore you
Cause I've been waiting for you
Truthfully I'm not desperate
I haven't changed my mind since we first met
But the last thing I wanna do
Is to tell you that I'm right for you

Truthfully I
I'm finding finally
Truthfully you
You helped me find at last
Truthfully we
Are finding out what's true
And truthfully I
am finding out what's you

I'm finding finally
Truthfully, I'm finding out what's you
I'm smiling again

Let's Forget About It
I told you I was sorry, I told you I was wrong
I said it was an accident and don't tell anyone

But you love to circle round and round
You're so misunderstood
Yeah you love to circle round and round
And you know that we should forget about it

You lied about how much you knew
I thought you were my friend
You lied upon the matress
c'mon, tell me where you've been
You lied about this night apart
You lied about the room
If you're gonna have to lie to me then

Let's forget about it
Let's forget about it

I'll stop crying on the mountain that we made
On the molehill where we spilt the milk

So you say this never happened
Perhaps not the way I thought
Did I throw this out of focus
Or was it just the way we fought?
That it seemed to me you took this girl
But you wear to God it's not

Let's forget about it
Let's forget about it

I'll stop crying if you'll stop
I'll stop crying if you'll stop
I'll stop crying if you'll stop lying to meback to top
How
I didn't come this far
For you to make this hard for me
And now you want to ask me "How?"
It's like how does your heart beat
And why do you breathe?
How does you heart beat
And why do you breathe?

Why did you come here?
You weren't invited
You were on the outside
Stay on the outside
And now you want to ask me "why?"
It's like why does you heart beat
And why do you cry?
How does your heart beat?

And there are come things
That I'd like to figure out
There are some things
That I can do without
Like you and your letters
That go on forever
And you and the people
That were never friends
With all the things
That you could be
You never could learn
How to be me
And now you want to ask me "how?"
It's like how does your heart beat
And why do you breathe?
How does your heart beat
And why do you breathe?back to top
Furious Rose
"It's not really poetry
But it's pretty" he said
As he raises his voice
She lowers her head
"It makes my heart heavy
You're lonely, I think
Oh Rose you're sad, I suppose"

"Look in her bed and she's bound to be breathing
She's lying there dead, no she's breathing"

Furious Rose with your opiate eyes
Your languorous hum, that tone of surprise
I've heard energy in adversity
Your smile: The soul of witchery
You're not running away
You're not running, are you?

Lyrically longing, she's tearing the words from the page
She's fearfully seething
"Bring me your blessings, a prayer or a new pen
You don't know what I need"

"Look in my bed and I'm bound to be sleeping
I'm lying there dead but I'm breathing"

And I'm barely balancing as it is
And I don't want to drown in my dreams
Bring me wild plums and agrimony
I bet you don't even know what that means"

Furious Rose with your opiate eyes
Your languorous hum, that tone of surprise
I've heard energy in adversity
Your smile: The soul of witchery
You're not running away
You're not running, are you?

Gingerly peering over his shoulder
Removed herself from the room
She's terribly freezing,
She always knows when to goback to top
Wishing Heart
No teacher to follow
No prophet to tell me how
But I know what I want
I know what I want now
Like water, it rushes
It's the last thing you see
Whenm you close your eyes
It's the one place you want to be
But if it doesn't brush my shoulder
And it doesn't beat my heat
That's not what I want
That'ws not where I will start
I never kissed somebody
So that they would break my heart
That's not what I want

If you don't know what you're missing
Cause you don't know where to start
Follow your heart

I was restless, I was restless
I was restless, I was restless
I just want this to be good
I just want this to be good
But you don't understand
You don't understand me
And I want to be understood

But if it doesn't brush my shoulder
And it doesn't beat my heart
That's not what I want
No that's not where I will start
I never kissed somebody
So that they would break my heart
That's not what I want

If we all leap before we crawl
we might fall
And it's not always candy spun from head to heart
And it's not always meant to be
And it's not always up to me

But if it doesn't brush my shoulder
And it doesn't beat my heart
That's not what I want
No that's not where I will start
I never kissed somebody
So that they would break my heart
That's not what I want

If you don't know what you're missing
Cause you don't know where to start
You don't know what you're missing
Follow you're wishing heartback to top
Dance with the Angels
You want to dance with the angels?
Well then embroider me with gold
And I will fly with the angels
And you can dance with me

Sing with the angels?
Then show me a song
And I will strum with the angels
And you can sing with me

But you want to fall
Fashionably in love with a woman
In love with a life you'll adore
In love with a woman you'll adore

Under my wings, you'll start to ask yourself
Under my wings, you'll learn to fly
Under my wings, you'll come to understand
How to hold on if you want to

Or you can dream of the frog legs
Sitting in the church
In the glass in the sand
Where your footsteps
Or you can dream of the angels
In the air
Can you see me?
I float in skies in your eyes,
In your eyes

Under my wings, you'll start to look for me
Under my wings, you'll want to cry sometimes
Under my wings, you'll find someone to hold on to
If you want to

You want to dance with the angels?
Well then embroider me with gold
And I will fly with the angels
And you can dance with meback to top
Jake
I'm going as far as I can go
Away from here
Away from you, Jake
And the whole you sunk me into

I wish that I could belong here with you
And just be
But that's not all that I'm about

Your life is built on accidents
Like meeting me
You write everything down
In you grocery list
People do this
Even insects buzz like airplanes
Why can't we fly away?
I'm going as far as I can go

Your dad died cause his heart hurt
Arking away his 45 years
Dragging your mom along
I don't want that
Neither do you, neither do you

If I am not fun
And I am not interesting
Perhaps I am not interested in you
Neither are you
You can't stand in front of an oven
Cause it's warm
And the fumes are dangerous

I'm going as far as I can go
Away from here
Away from you, Jake
And the hole you've sunk me into
I wish that I could belong here with you
And just be
But that's not all that I'm about to doback to top
This
In an open room that echoes well
This is where I can tell you everything

This is where I meet my muse
And it feeds me
This is how I buy the sun
And it feeds me
This is why I burn this candle
I light it so that I can handle this

You're so still, you're so safe
you appear severe
You are so nonchalant

I'm so still
I'm so safe
I appear severe
I am not

This is where I meet my muse
And it feeds me
This is how I buy the sun
And it feeds me
I told David I won't die
And this how I watch the sky
This is why I burn this candle
I light it so that I can handle this

You're so still
You save face
You try to erase
All you feel inside

Stand still
I save face
I misplace all the feelings
I can't hide

Of all the rooms I've loved the most
It's you I love inside this room
They test me I can train my evil eye
To see like they do
Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
Of all the rooms I've loved before
It's you I love
This is how I meet my museback to top
Split Second
I did not want to be stuck
One second longer than I had to be there
Stuck inside the door

I'm always scared I'll slam my fingers
In the door
Because the last time that I left
I slammed my fingers in the door

When you want to get out
You get up and walk
Straight to the door
Not stop and think about it
Thinking that one second longer
Than a car could hit me in it
If I thought more than I didback to top
Firecracker
You want to suffer
And show me you're angry
Fight with your fists up
Or call for your mommy
You want to suffer
And show me you're angry
Spend time alone
Find a stick in the basement
Drink water and gold dust
And live on impatience
Slaughtered for weakness
Electric like static
Slaughtered, you're weak
There's no need to speak

You change your shoelaces
I light firecrackers
You step on the sparks
You change your shoelaces
I light firecrackers

I shouldn't be any great inspiration
I never got in your way
I should never have to chase you
I was the one who got away
If you could feel the pain
Your confusion has caused me
You would have stopped before you spoke
Listening to lies, the pain doesn't suit me
The gift that you gave me, I put it away
I couldn't look at it, It made me think of you

You change your shoelaces
I light firecrackers
You step on the sparks
You change your shoelaces
I light firecrackers

Spend time alone
Find a stick in the basement
Drink water and gold dust
And live on impatience
Electric like static
And no need to speak
It's not right but it's not wrong
So I wrote this song
I wrote this song
Is that what you want?
You got what you want
Does it make you feel better?
With a smirk on your face
And a gun at my head
You come to my place and ask to be fed

You change your shoelaces
I light firecrackers
You step on the sparks
You change your shoelaces
I light firecrackers
You get in the way

You get in the way

You want to suffer and show me you're angry
Fight with your fists up or call for your mommy
You want to suffer and show me you're angryback to top
