all Phantom Planet lyrics



California
We've been on the run
Driving in the sun
Looking out for #1
California here we come
Right back where we started from

Hustlers grab your guns
Your shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101
California here we come
Right back where we started from

California!
Here we come!

On the stereo
Listen as we go
Nothing's gonna stop me now
California here we come
Right back where we started from
Pedal to the floor
Thinkin' of the roar
Gotta get us to the show
California here we come
Right back where we started from

California!
Here we come!back to top
Always on My Mind
Everybody in this place can up and move away
For all I care this town's already dead and empty
I'm told that I'm a victim of obsession
That's what my friends say
Oh I'm a fool for having ever let her tempt me

Well I turn pale when she walks by
I am lost in her eyes
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind

She glances over but she keeps on walking down that street
All I can do is hope that she is thinking of me
If I could blink if I could breathe if I could get my legs to move
Well this could be the day I get this girl to love me

Well I turn pale when she walks by
I am lost in her eyes
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mind
She had turned from a sound,
Well I must have cried out loud
She is always on my mind
She is always on my mindback to top
Lonely Day
I could tell from the minute I woke up
It was going to be a lonely lonely
Lonely lonely day.
Rise and shine rub the sleep out of my eyes
And try to tell myself I can't
Go back to bed
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day.
Even though the sun is shining down on me and I should feel about as happy as can be
I just got here and I already want to leave
It's gonna be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day

Everybody knows that something's wrong
But nobody knows what's going on
We all sing the same old song
When you want it all to go away
It's shaping up to be a lonely day

I could tell from the minute I woke up it was going to be a lonely lonely lonely lonely day.back to top
One Ray of Sunlight
Goodness sometimes things get bad
But I swear
I'm doing all I can
So try all you want to
I'm gonna try too

If I get one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
Maybe we can be happy again
I'll try for one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
Maybe we can be happy and then...

Things don't go as I planned
But I swear I'm doing all I can
So try all you want to
I'm gonna try too

If I get one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
Maybe we can be happy again
I'll try for one ray of sunlight to hold in my hand
And I guess if this isn't the end
Maybe we can be happy againback to top
Anthem
I woke up today a song was swimming in my head
And I hummed it to myself as I got out of bed
And on the way to take a shower it all just dawned on me
That a song like this just might go down in history
I quickly ran back to get my guitar
A pen and some paper

'cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong
Yeah this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along

Well I quickly got to work and put the song in gear
And my neighbor rang the doorbell said it caught his ear
I was playing it so loud the whole neighborhood could hear
And at night from every household it became quite clear
Everyone was singing along
The same notes the same song
Or maybe I heard it wrong

'cause this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm trying to put the words where they belong
Yeah this whole world needs an anthem
And I'm hoping everyone will sing along.back to top
In Our Darkest Hour
Oh yeah it started today in a cloud if I was the sun I would shout
I've got so much shining left before I'm out
Yeah it began with a spark then a flame grew into a fire and spread out again
And I just woke up here surrounded by the whole thing

Well, we have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
When we may not make it

I can't see a thing through the smoke and if I could breathe
I'd try not to choke
No where to run no where to hide no where to go
Sometimes I get stuck yeah I get so upset
I burn at the ends I learn to regret
Just one toss of that faithful cigarette

Well, we have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
I think the end is near I can feel it
We have got to get out of here
In our darkest hour
When we may not make itback to top
Turn Smile Shift Repeat
Here they come the business men like a herd of cattle rumbling in
The exchange has officially begun
Now all the offices are buzzing the executives are busy bees
They watch the gears turn in the employees
They just turn smile shift repeat
There's a crowd forming on wallstreet near the tallest building on the block
A suit has lost his fortune to the stocks
There was no time to see his fatal flaw the madness set in with the loss
Now he cuts at throats to watch the heads fall off
They just turn smile shift repeat

Decimal points and dollar signs taxes penalties and fines
He's come to cut you down
Numbers passwords protocol it's not enough to save your soul
He's come to cut you down
Bring you right back to zero
They just turn smile shift repeatback to top
Hey Now Girl
Well let me tell you I have seen a monster age of seventeen
Who'll let you in to kick you out and knows what love is all about

Hey now girl I see you walking by
And long ago you used to stop and talk now you just wink your eye
And I'm surprised you look all grown up
A champagne glass next to a paper cup
I stopped you just to say it
Hey now girl

Her tongue is black haven't you heard her mutter those three dirty words
For all those foolish boys to hear like a siren bringing ships so near

Hey now girl I see you walking by
And I remember how you used to smile or how hard you used to try
It's in your eyes and I'm in a trance
A winter chill next to a spring romance
I stopped you just to say it
Hey now girlback to top
Nobody's Fault
Everything is ok everything is fine
I give you everything you ask for don't be so unkind
Well every time you're mad about every little thing
But it's too soon to pull out or pull out that wedding ring
I'm so ready I'm not ready
This little boy is running right back home
I guess it's nobody's fault now but my own
Never had the patience never had the time
Never knew that working hard was such a crime
Well I thought I could make you happy down the line
But I guess it's been over since you heard this heart of mine
On your mark get set go
This little boy is running right back home
I guess it's nobody's fault now but my ownback to top
All Over Again
Your crash is waiting to happen
And you you're dragging me down

All over again
I give in I give up

You splashed but you started sinking
And you you're dragging me down

All over again
I give up
I give in
I give up

You are crowding me in I want to get out
This is the end all over again
You're crowding me in I just want to get out
This is the end all over againback to top
Wishing Well
It cursed us all on our way home
We passed the sights like passing stones
And I will never go back there again
The tourists and the army men
The s this evening
Will start to sink under my skin
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well
He is the shrieks I am the fear
That yelling man rings in my ears
Out of his mind he's my conscience
Hour after hour pill after pill
He is my bellyache I've taken so much medicine to kill
I know there's something wrong
'Cause this night just drags on and on
The clock still says it won't be long
'Til all your hard earned money's gone
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing well
And I will never go back there again
The tourists and the army men
The s this evening
Will start to sink under my skin
The dust and sand is what they sell
The flashing lights and ringing bells
A wish as far as I can tell
Inside this dried up wishing wellback to top
Something Is Wrong
Burn me down if that's how everything's gonna start
With a flame from the heat off the look on your face
On a day like today
I could have made out every raindrop falling down
On your head
Now I fear that I may taste
These tears rolling down my face
And realize something is wrong
With the light of the sun
In the color of the sky
With you and everyoneback to top
