Breathe
Two men
They started walking
Started talking bout better days
One says to the other
We do it all again
Seems I knew I would

And now I found it
Found I got it
I didn't want this
Somebody help me see
Now I feel it
Feel like I've been there
I didn't need this
Somebody help me breathe

Here we are again
Just face to facing
Each other another day
Who wins
Well who cares
It always ends up the same
Seems I knew I would

And now I found it
Found I got it
I didn't want this
Somebody help me see
And now I feel it
Feel that I've been there
I didn't need this
Would somebody help me stand
And now I've told them
Already warned them
I didn't want this
Somebody help me breathe

If I was them
Then I wanna be
What I see
If I could drag my life in a moment
Wanna know do you want me to go
Gonna keep it all from ending
Never stop myself from pretending
That you always knew that I never could

All I ever really wanted was to be the same
Equal treatment never ever comes
And there they go again
All I ever really wanted was to be like you
So perfect
So worthless
If I could take it all back think again
I would

And now I found it
Found I got it
I didn't want this
Somebody help me see
Now I feel it
Feel that I've been there
I didn't need this
Somebody help me stand
And now I've told them
I didn't want this
I didn't need this
Would somebody help me breathe
Would somebody help me breathe
Would somebody help me?back to top
Cowboy Hat
Yes he wore a cowboy hat
Each bone broken in his back
All the money and all the gold
Couldn't buy my love at 8 years old
Now I'm in love with a girl thats wrong for me
Ask her, she will disagree
Her father was a small time man
With small time dreams and small time hands
But

But I was there when there was nobody home
Please believe me when I say I dunno
Gone for good in fact but what does it mean
Within a year they always sold and bought

Easy enough to just look at her
Whole world on a silver platter
Was that that bad for me
If I was there the scotch is free
Won round one but it's not over
He don't care cause he don't know her
True love is not the same
If I could lend a hand in shame

But I was there when there was nobody home
Please believe me when I say I dunno
Gone for good infact but what does it mean
Within a year they always sold and bought

If I was big
So much easier to see
Don't hide from me
That which I've already seen
You lie to me
More than occasionally
Don't lie to me
You lied to me

I'm as high as I'll ever be
I don't mind, stay and see
They've all gone, why don't we
Holding hands, you and me
But I'm as high as I'll ever be
But later on, lies to see
My past is gone, only from me
I'm alive

But I was there when there was nobody home
Please belirve me when I say I dunno
Gone for good infact but what does it mean
Within a year they always sold and bought

Remember when it was me
Driving come down just for me
And then we'll try as we've beenback to top
Leader Of Men
Tell your friends not to think aloud
Until they swallow
Whisper things into my brain
Your voice sounds so hollow

I am not a leader of men
Since I prefer to follow
Do you think I could have a drink
Since it's so hard to swallow
So hard to swallow

So turn the television off
And I will sing a song
And if you suddenly have the urge
You can sing along

I touch your hand, I touch your face
I think the fruit is rotten
Give me lessons on how to breath
Cause I think I've forgotten
I think I've forgotten

One day, up to a cliff
That overlooked the water
I jumped in to save a girl
It was somebody's daughter
And now the ring is on my hand
It was given to me by her
To this day we all sit around
And dream of ways to get higher
To get much higherback to top
Old Enough
Shes old enough
She knows enough
Shes thrown up
So throw her

Out to me
And I'll treat her like she was mine
Let my belief
You got your way and I'll get mine

And I can't eat
I can't sleep
I want to thank you for coming
And why do we always laugh
While we're in this discussion

Should have known enough
Never grown enough
Alone enough
To know my

Where would be
The path I wanted to try
If it fairs to be
Good for me than I'd rather die

And I can't eat
I can't sleep
I want to thank you for coming
And why do we always laugh
While we're in this discussion

Black words always lead to something
Bury her cause her time was cut thin
All the while you just stood and stared
Never cared to help we just got carried away

Lately it seems like my dreams have started to die
It occured to me on the inside I guess so have i

And I can't eat
I can't sleep
I want to thank you for coming
And why do we always laugh
While we're in the last ones coming

Standing here with my two feet
Enjoy it now cause it won't be
Some way
Some how
The things that keep me alive
Aren't livin here anymoreback to top
Worthy To Say
nickleback
worthy to say


They usually come around about 10 o'clock
You can hear them
You can tell them by the way they knock
Somebody said the other one had a badge
Who told ya, Who told ya

How bout if I stay and you run away
Well come on back and try to get some today
Well somebody's gonna do it again
Gonna make me turn against all of my friends
So you better have something damn worthy to say

They're blowin' smoke everywhere around the block
You can smell it
You can tell by the way they talk
Somebody stole five for gasoline
Who told ya, Who told ya

How bout if I stay and you run away
Well come on back and try to get some today
Well somebody's gonna do it again
Gonna make me turn against all of my friends
So you better have something damn worthy to say

I'll never do it again (No I won't)
Lets settle it (We don't)
Can't afford my life cause I'm spending it
Since you got just what you wanted

We never do anything anymore
One eye on the telephone, one on the door
Somebody said revenge was served sweeter cold
I told ya, I told ya
They're growing dope everywhere around the block
You can smell it you can tell it by the way we talk
Somebody stole five for gasoline
Who told ya, Who told ya

How bout if I stay and you run away
Well come on back and try to get some today
Well somebody's gonna do it again
Gonna make me turn against all of my friends
So you better have something damn worthy to say

I'll never do it again (No I wont)
Let's settle it (We dont)
I can't afford my life cause I'm spending it
Since you got just what you wanted

I'll never do it again (No I won't)
Praise myself (I don't)
I can't afford my life cause I'm spending it
Since you got just what you wanted
What you wanted (x3)back to top
Diggin' This
nickelback
diggin' this


You say you don't want it
Just watch and you'll flaunt it
You stare at the ceiling
And ignore what I'm feeling

Well that's fine, hey I don't mind
I can find nothing wrong with it
And you say in your polite way
Oh by the way can you get on with it?

Now that I've seen
Not really Diggin This!

Did I ask for your input?
How's the taste of your own foot?
To speak and not be right
You'd like to just rewrite
My life and take what you like
And decide with all of it
And to know that if it goes right
You'll never find out if I wanted it

Now that I've seen
Not really Diggin This!
Now that I know
Not really Diggin This!

Called him twice today
They said he went away
I never wondered why
They tried to hold him
Ain't never comin' back
Pull out the welcome mat
I never wondered why
They tried to hold him

The way that its goin'
To laugh without knowin'
The way that I'm feelin'
Inside is unappealin'

Well that's fine, hey I don't mind
I can find nothing wrong with it
And you say in your polite way
Oh by the way can you get on with it?

Now that I've seen
Not really Diggin This!
Now that I know
Not really Diggin This!
Not really Diggin This!back to top
Deep
And you see much better than I see
And you know all that I'm thinking
To define or redefine too slow
And it seems all that I'm sinking

Running through the deep
Gonna find the backwoods
I found out
All day long who will be the big men giving some

And you bleed much better than I bleed
And you've shown all that is so good
And your word, much better than my word
And you stand right where a hole should

Running through the deep
Gonna find the backwoods
I found out
All day long who will be the big men giving some

To feel devine
To hold onto ones self
To give and to give and
To never receive by myself

Running through the deep (I want it)
Gonna find the backwoods (I need it)
I found out (much more than he did)
All day long who will be the big men giving some
(give it back somehow)
Giving some (I'm ready to forgive now)

Running through the deep
Gonna find the backwoods
I found out
All day long who will be the big men giving some
Running through the deep gonna find the back backwoods
I found out gonna get it gonna get it
All day long who will be the big men
Are you really really gonna get itback to top
One Last Run
Crafty friends where'd they all go
Try and find but no one ever knows
You fall down makes you wanna stay
Who the hell would want to anyway
Well I'm leaving

And I want it all
Forgot it all
Better find this all
And I found out where it's all at

Better now than I'm before
Tried it once now I want it more
Memories of are cut in half
Tell the truth then I want you to laugh
We're not laughing

And I want it all
Forgot it all
Better find this all
And I found out where it's all at

Knew it all
Whats it like
Sell it all
Whats your priceback to top
Not Leavin' Yet
nickelback
not leavin' yet


Come lie next to me Jesus Christ
Holes in hand where a cross used to fit just right
The meeting called, the topic: a ladies fate
You don't have to remind me
I won't be late

Please excuse me, I'm sorry I just can't wait
And don't use grandfather as the bait

Down the hall the baby boy just born
Rosary around a crown of thorns

Please excuse me, I'm sorry I just can't wait
And don't use grandfather as the bait

Can't you see the lady's not ready
hands and fee are bound and unsteady
In the hall the family's greiving
I'm the one who stays
I'm not leavin' yetback to top
Hold Out Your Hand
All men with stars upon the chest
Save yourselves, your family,
Don't worry 'bout the rest
Small child receives light through the crack
The human mile, they're never coming back
Hold out your hand and ask for some

Now and again she sits beneath the tree
The sign above reads
Hard work will set you free
Hold out your hand and ask for some
Too late for another direction
Always what we've got in store
Hurry back we've all been waiting
We can't take much anymore
Where are the days where brothers are brothers
A childless mother
Leave it except for oneback to top
Leader Of Men (Acoustic)
Tell your friends not to think out loud
Until they swallow
Whisper things into my brain
Your voice sounds so hollow
I am not a leader of men
Since I prefer to follow
Do you think I could have a drink
Since it's so hard to swallow
Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaah
So hard to swallow

Turn your television off
And I will sing a song
If you suddenly have the urge
You can sing along
I touch your hand I touch your face
I think the fruit is rotten
Give me lessons on how to breathe
Cause I think I've forgotten
Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaah
Think I've forgotten

One day, up to a cliff
That overlooks the water
I jumped in to save a girl
It was somebody's daughter
And now the ring is on my hand
Was given to me by her
And To this day we all sit around
And dream of ways to get higher
Yeeeaaeeeeaaaeeeaaaaaah
To get much higher

Uuuuuuuhhhhhhh!!!
Tell your friends not to think out loud
Until they swallow
Whisper things into my brain
Your voice sounds so hollow
Yeeeaaah
I am not a leader of men
Since I prefer to follow
Do you think I could have a drink
Since it's so hard to swallow
Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaah
So hard to swallowback to top
