I Want to Save You
Standing on the edge of morning
Scent of sex and new found glory
Playing as she's pulling back her hair
She drives away
She's feeling worthless
Used again but nothing's different
She stayed the night
But knows he doesn't care

Home by three
Deafening quiet
The porch light's off
Yes they forgot it
She'd cry herself to sleep
But she don't dare
Then she wants to be a model
She wants to hear she's beautiful
She's beautiful

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
Save me too
I want to save you

Dressed by dawn and out the door
No light
She memorized the floor
So she could leave without being detected
She works till three
It's uniform
She dreams that he'll come by the store
She prays for days
The boys mean she's protected
And she wants someone to see her
She needs to hear she's beautiful
She's beautiful

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
Save me too
I want to save you

And she won't sleep
She won't sleep
And she won't sleep
At all

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
Save me too
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save youback to top
Punk Rock Princess
Maybe when the room is empty
Maybe when this bottle's full
Maybe when the door gets broke down love can break in
Maybe when I'm done with thinking
Maybe you can think me whole
Maybe when I'm done with endings this can begin
This can begin, this can begin
You could be my punk rock princess
I could be your garage band king
You could tell me why you just don't fit in
And how you're gonna be somethin'

Maybe when your hair gets darker
Maybe when your eyes get wide
Maybe when the walls are smaller there will be more space
Maybe when I'm not so tired
Maybe you can step inside
Maybe when I look for things that I can't replace
I can't replace, I can't replace

You could be my punk rock princess
I could be your garage band king
You could tell me why you just don't fit in
And how you're gonna be somethin'

If I could be your first real heart ache
I would do it over again
You could be my punk rock princess
I could be like heroin

It was this time last year
You're so much different now
You watch the traffic clear
You hear the cars spin out
I never thought you'd last
I never dreamed you would
You watch your life go past
You wonder if you should

If you should be my punk rock princess
So I could be your garage band king
You could tell me why you just don't fit in
And how you're gonna be somethin'
If I could be your first real heart ache
I would do it over again
If you could be my punk rock princess
I could be like heroin

Whoa oh you know, you only burn my bridges
Whoa oh you know, you just can't let it sink in
Whoa oh you know, you only burn my bridges
Who oh you know, you just can let it sink in

You could be my heroineback to top
I Woke up in a Car
I woke up in new york city
From my sleep behind the wheel
Caught a train to poughkeepsie
And time stood still

She wrote me a letter from san diego
To qualify her luck
These flights connect through arizona
But I think I'll stay stuck

So here I am
Here I am
Well I woke up in a car
I traced away the fog
So I could see the mississippi on her knees
I've never been so lost
I've never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a car

I met a girl who kept tattoos for homes
That she had loved
If I were her I'd paint my body
Until all my skin was gone

She wrote me a letter as we passed through rockford
She said she won't forget
Maybe I do maybe I don't
But I know I haven't yet

So here I am
Here I am
Well I woke up in a car
I traced a way to fall
So I could see the mississippi on her knees
I've never been so lost
I've never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a car

And maybe I could live forever
If that ever I had known
That you'd be waiting there whenever I'm alone

But here I am
Well I woke up in a car
I traced a way to fall
So I could see the mississippi on her knees
I've never been so lost
I've never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys

Well I woke up in a car
I traced a way to fall
So I could see the mississippi on her knees
I've never been so lost
I've never felt so much at home
Please write my folks and throw away my keys
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a car
I woke up in a carback to top
If You C Jordan
I have a story, a bitter anthem for everyone to hear,
about this kid who just don't like me and that's a solid fact.
They say he's hunting me and as you see I'm all swelled up with fear
cuz I can't get him off my back.

[Chorus:]
If you see Jordan, if you see Jordan,
He makes me sick, he makes me sick
High school's over, high school's over
and you still won't quit.

You tried to fight me down at Tyler's beach and man I think that's great.
You nearly cried and said to yell at you like I do at all the girls.
Then you drove home real quick, did you make it in time to masturbate?
There's one too many of you in this world.

[Chorus]

You say its chivalry, but its jealousy that led us to this song.
Won't play it often just at least until you're gone.
You'll stop at nothing but the real thing and everything up to that's pretend.
You tried to brainwash all my friends.

[Chorus]

Fuck you Jordan, fuck you Jordan,
You make me sick, you make me sick
High school's over, high school's over
I don't care if you dye your hair,
You'll always be a little redhead bitchback to top
The Astronaut
I've been sleeping with ghosts
I've been watching stars
Crawling out of the sky
And I've been hoping
I'm close to the space man movies
I call my life

And I've been climbing ladders through time
I've got tunnel vision
But I'm doing fine
And I've been
Watching stars coming off of the wall
And maybe if I'm lucky I can catch them
Before you fall
And you are not alone

Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you've got
I need to be high
Crawling out of the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high

And I've been holding
This microphone
And I've been shouting out
But I think we're alone
And I've got platinum vision
Innocent for the touch
I've got you to propel me
But I still need so much
Not to be alone

Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you've got
I need to be high
Crawling out of the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high

And you are not alone
You are not alone
You are not alone

Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you've got
I need to be high
Crawling out of the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high
Calling out to the astronaut
I need some of what you've got
I need to be high
Disappear in the world she brought
Calling out to the astronaut
I need to be high

And I've got you to propel me
But I still need so muchback to top
Hurricane
Shake down you make me break
For goodness sake
I think I'm on the edge
Of something new with you
Shout out don't drown the sound
I'll drown you out
You'll never scream so loud
As I want to scream with you

Standing there with your smile blinding
Your eyes from seeing
My face as I'm dying
To figure out a girl
But she drifts so far away
I'm on her coast
So maybe I should stay
And map around your world

[Chorus]
So Don't Say
"These currents are still killing me"
And you can't explain
But the wind went and pulled me
Into the hurricane

Stand up don't make a sound
Your ears might bleed
There are sweet flourescent enemies
That live inside me
The world moves faster than I knew
Not fast enough to not creep up on you
And the space we put between
So pull me under your weather patterns
Your cold fronts and the rain don't matter
Becuase the sun burns what I needed

[Chorus]

You don't do it on purpose
But you make me shake
Now I count the hours 'til you wake
With your babies breath
Breathe symphonies
Come on sweet catastrophe

Maybe this time I can follow through
I can feel complete
Stop paying dues
Stop the rain from falling
Keep my oceans calm
This time I know nothings wrong

[Chorus x 2]back to top
Cavanaugh Park
At cavanaugh park
Where I used to sit
All alone in the dark
And dream about things
That I cannot say
'cause grandma said destiny
Would blow me away
And nothings gonna blow me away

At cavanaugh park
Where you used to take me
To play in the sand
And said to me son
One day you'll be a man
And men can do terrible things
Yes they can

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I'm running out of clock
And that ain't a shock
**some things never do change**

At cavanaugh park
We used to get high
And watch teams as they fought
They loved my friend adam
But he always got caught
Man that kid made fucking up look cool
Aren't we all so cool now, no.

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I'm running out of clock
And that ain't a shock
Some things never do change
Never do change
Never do change
Never do change
Never do change

At cavanaugh park
Where I used to think
That my life would be good
And I would do things
That I thought that I should
And no ones going to tear me down

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I'm running out of clock
And that ain't a shock
Some things never do change

There was never any place
For someone like me
To be totally happy
I'm running out of clock
And that ain't a shock
Some things never do change
Never do change
Never do change
Never do change
Never do changeback to top
Fall
I close my eyes
Thought I was lost but I was stranded
I go outside
To my surprise the sky had landed
I thought it made more sense
If I could only keep you guessing
I was a fool to think that I should stop you from undressing
Now I'm believing all the words you say
That I can't say back to you
But so you can

So I fall
I don't wanna feel this small
You know I just can't handle this
Handle this at all
And I'll just fall
I'll let my heartbeat drop
I falter as the music stops
And you watch me as stall
And wonder when I fall

I kiss your neck
I feel you breathing on my shoulder
Still I'm perfect
It must be you cause now it's over
I was so close
That was the most that I have ever been through
Now old cassettes and cigarettes
Will be the ones to save you
How can you ask for me to stay
When all you ever do is go?
Just go

And so I fall
I don't wanna feel this small
You know I just can't handle this
Handle this at all
And so I fall
I let my heartbeat drop
I falter as the music stops
And you watch me as I stall
And wonder when i..

Go on
You can't be waiting
Go on
And watch me as I fall

I don't wanna feel this small
You know I just can't handle this
Handle this at all
And so I'll fall
I'll let my heartbeat drop
I falter as the music stops
And you watch me as stall
And wonder when i..back to top
Straw Dog
Staring into the intersection
She thinks that she can fly and she might
Holding on in a new direction
She's gonna try it tonight
The closer I get to feeling
The further that I'm feeling from alright
The more I step into the sun
The more I step out of the light

Jessica is covered in a blanket
On a sunday porch
Thinking on the weekends
She would party in the city
She doesn't have a flame
She'd prefer to burn out
Like a torch
If she gets nowhere in life
At least she knows she's pretty

She says
Hey now the straw dog's out in the street
Hey now there's chemicals in the clouds
Hey now they're calling all the police
But they wont get to us anyhow

The moon is shining now
And shadows are what's left of all the noise
Simple silhouettes and cut outs
As if we had a choice
He listens closely now
Swears that he can hear a voice
That's calling him

And saying

Hey now the straw dog's out in the street
Hey now there's chemicals in the clouds
Hey now there calling all the police
But they wont get to us anyhow... no

What does it take to be a super hero in my world
Make no mistake that these villains always get the girl
We can escape and then we'd skate away from all of this
But no one ever does

She's saying

Hey now the straw dog's out in the street
Hey now there's chemicals in the clouds
Hey now they're calling all the police
But they wont get to us
No they'll never get to us
Hey now the straw dog's out in the street
Hey now there's chemicals in the clouds
They're calling all the police
But they wont get to us

Good News
She's trapped inside her room
With reruns on the screen
Old books and movies
But she can't stop thinking
I'm torn between myself
My radio my friends
I want to write this one off over and over again
And then she looked at me to scream
My castles are falling
But I can't look into the street
Without everything changing

I want to read good news
I want to be innocent again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

She waits all day
She stands a stranger in her skin
She moves the science with her hands
She lines her walls
With every paper she can see
These words consume her
But they never set her free
And then she looked at me to scream
My castles are falling
But I can't look into the street
Without everything changing

I want to read good news
I want to be innocent again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening

I want to read good news
I want to be a little kid again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happening
I want to read good news
I want to go to sleep at night again
I want to read good news
But nothing good is happeningback to top
Drunk Girl
I kissed a drunk girl
I kissed a drunk girl, yes I did
I kissed a drunk girl on the lips
I let my guard down
How could I have been so dumb
Her eyes were open
I know I am not the one
I know I am not the one
I know I am not the one

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
I'm sure I could've been anybody else

I went to her house
Everybody there was gone
Her little cousin just passed out on the lawn
She walked to my car and
Mouthed is everything okay
Leaned in slowly so now i
Can say

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
I'm sure I could've been anybody else
Anybody else

I pulled away
Cuz you see I didn't think it would be
Right I said let's save this
For another night
She said no, no, no I know
That everything is gonna be just fine
How could I do this when I want her to be all mine.

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
I'm sure I could've been anybody else
Anybody else

I know you don't care about me
I'm sure when all is said and done
And I go home feeling lonely
You will have had your fun
Do you even remember?

I kissed a drunk girl
Why do I do these things I do to myself
I kissed a drunk girl
And now I'm sure
And now I'm sure
I could've been anybody else
Anybody else
Anybody else
I could have been

Not What It Seems
A long day
If ever these questions were yours what would you say
You don't know
But I'm writing the answers on cheap paper napkins
And now he's turning off
And now she's shutting down
And it's not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No it's not what it seems
It's just what you think it is
And these fights
They climb through my veins like it's mecury rising
And these nights
I seem to remember a home that was better
And now he's turning off
And now she's shutting down
And it's not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No it's not what it seems
Its just what you think it is
And now he's turning off
His family's breaking down
And it's not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No it's not what it seems
Its just what you think it is it's just what you think it is
No it's not what it seems
Nothings the same when you give it away
No it's not what it seems
It's just what you think it is just what you think it is
It's just what you think it is
What you think it isback to top
You're Gone
Taking steps back through the words,
I should have said to you,
They all got lost, you went away.

Well I feel sick and,
You just don't care anymore,
anymore, I was to be with you,
Minutes of me and you, and I can't feel this happening.

So tie my hands back,
And make me feel you coming down,
Coming down.

And you don't care,
Your face is on a billboard,
And your everywhere,
You don't care much for interviews,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone away,
If you don't like being hurt,
Then please don't stay.

It's hard to wave goodbye,
From airplanes, when I just don't think that you can see,
I taber off, and say it's never worth the pain,
Sometime's it is.

And you don't care,
Your face is on a billboard,
And your everywhere,
You don't care much for interviews,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone away,
If you don't like being hurt,
Then please don't stay,
If you don't like being hurt,
Then please don't stay.

Got a wish that I could make this right,
I wish that, there was something worth the time,
For her to give to me.

A phone call from L.A's my present,
There's nothing left for me to give,
I wish I could, and I know that I should but,
But you know, I know, I won't

And you don't care,
Your face is on a billboard,
And your everywhere,
You don't care much for interviews,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone,
You're gone away,
If you don't like being hurt,
Then please don't stay,
If you don't like being hurt,
Then get away,
If you don't like being hurt,
Then please don't stay.back to top
Globes & Maps
Light breaks underneath a heavy door
And I try to keep myself awake
Fall all around us on our hotel floor
And you think that you've made a mistake
And there's a pain in my stomach from another sleepless binge
And I struggled to get myself up again

I wanna hang onto something
That won't break away or fall apart
Like the pieces of my heart

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won't you believe me?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
Do you wanna leave or somethin?

And dreams came around you in a hazy rain
You opened your mouth wide to feel them fall
And I write a letter, from a one-way train
But I don't think you'll read it at all

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won't you believe me?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
Do you wanna leave or somethin?

And I can't take this anymore
Well I know that I can't take this anymore
I can't take this anymore
Cuz I know someday I'll see you walk out that door

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won't you believe me?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
So do you wanna leave? do you wanna leave?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
Do you wanna leave or somethin?back to top
