What Ever Happened?
Moonchild

I want to be forgotten
and I don't want to be reminded.
You said "please don't make this harder"
No, I won't yet.

I wanna be beside her
She wanna be admired.
You said "please don't make this harder"
No, I won't yet.

Oh dear, is it really all true?
Did they offend us and they want it to sound new?
Top ten ideas for countdown shows...
Whose cul;tureis this and does anybody know?
I wait and tell myself "life ain't chess,"
But no one comes in and yes, you're alone...

You don't miss me, I know

Oh Tennessee, what did you write?
I come togetherin the middle of the night.
Oh that's an ending I can't write, 'cause
I've got you to let me down.

I want to be forgotten
and I don't want to be reminded.
You said "please don't make this harder"
No, I won't yet.

I wanna be beside her
She wanna be admired.
You said "please don't make this harder"
No, I won't yet...back to top
Automatic Stop
So many fish there in the sea
I wanted you, you wanted me
That's just a phase, it's got to pass
I was a train moving too fast

Didn't understand what to see
Yeah, then I got a different view
It's you...no.

Wait, I'm gonna give it a break.
I'm not you friend,
I never was.
I said wait, I'm gonna give it a break.
I'm not your friend,
I never was.

So many fish there in the sea
She wanted him, he wanted me
That's just a phase, it's got to pass
I was a train moving too fast

Yeah, I know you warned me
But this is too important
Now I got a different view
It's you...

Why can't you wait?
I'm gonna give it a break
I'm not you friend,
I never was
I said wait, I'm gonna give it a break
I'm not you friend,
I never was.back to top
12:51
this is the updated version to my other one that is wrong..but this one is 100% accurate

Talk to me now I'm older
Your friend told you cause I told her
Friday night's have been lonely
Change your plans and then phone me

We could go and get 40's
Fuck going to that party
Oh really, your folks are away now?
Alright, let's go
You convinced me

12:51 is the time my voice
found the words I sought
Is it this stage I want?
The world is shutting out for us
Oh we were tense for sure
But we was confident

Kiss me now that I'm older
I won't try to control you
Friday night's have been lonely
Take it slow but don't warn me

We'd go out and get 40's
Then we'd go to some party
Oh really, your folks are away now?
Alright I'm coming,
I'll be right thereback to top
You Talk Way Too Much
Vocalist-Julian Casablancas

Now were all in love
You said "It's my fault, It's my fault"
He don't hear the news
You said "Why not? Why not?"

Chorus(2x):
Gimme some time
I just need a little time
Said, gimme some time
I just need a little time

Oh
You talk way too much(2x)
It's only the end(2x)

We won't hear the word
He said "It's my fault. It's my fault"
Bell tower, sad to ring
He said "Why not? why not?"

Chorus

Oh, for Christ's sake

Hey

well
You talk way too much(2x)
It's only the end
It's only the end and is always

You talk way too much(2x)
Is this how it ends?(2x)

Meet Me in the Bathroom
Vocalist-Jules Casablancas

Theyd say promises, wed make promises
theyd say, thats ok, long as we can celebrate
my uncle would say thingsll change, when he's dead
meet me in the bathroom, thats what she said
i dont mind, its true

never was on time
yes all once was mine
that was him somehow
and check him at the line
now they were just two fucks in love
and baby thats just not enough
and its small after all
and see them if they fall

Now they're sitting wise
i can't close her eyes
anywhere is fine
just dont waste my time

my uncle would say thingsll change when hes dead
meet me in the bathroom thats what she said
i dont mind, its true

never was on time
yes all once was mine
and that was long ago
and baby i dont mind
now they were just two fucks in love
and baby thats just not enough
dyssentery lives
and i wont be worthwhileback to top
Under Control
I don't want to waste your time,
I don't want to waste your time.
I just want to say -
I've got to say,
We worked hard, darling
We don't have no control
We're under control

I don't want to do it your way,
I don't want to do it your way.
I don't want to give it to you, your way.
I don't want to know...

I don't want to change your mind,
I don't want to change the world.
I just want to watch it go by.
I just want to watch you go by.
We were yound, darling
We don't have no control
We're out of control

I don't want to do it your way,
I don't want to do it your way.
I don't want to give it to you, your way.
I don't want to know...

I don't want to change your mind,
I don't want to waste your time.
I just want to know you're alright.
I've got to know you're alright;
You are young, darling
For now, but not for long
Under control.back to top
The Way It Is
She was still sleeping; the problem will stay
One more day
Said she's not sorry the wind blows her way
Accidents happen, there's one planned today
Oh you see...

I wish it was not true
But that's the way it is
It's not your fault
That's the way it is
I'm sick of you
And that's the way it is
And will always be.

Wednesday is over, it's over again.
Said my goodbyes to the life we won't spend
Together...

I wish it was not true
But that's the way it is
It's not your fault
That's the way it is
I'm sick of you
And that's the way it is

But that's not your problem
That's not a problem
That's not my problem
That's not your problem.back to top
The End Has No End
One by one, ticking time bombs won
It's not the secret of the government
That;s keeping you dumb
Oh, it's the other way around - wait...
What's that sound?
One by one, baby, here they come.

He wants it easy; he want it relaxed
Said I can do alot of things, but I can't do that
Two steps forward, then three steps back
...Alright

"Won't you take a walk outside?"
-Oh no.
"Can't you find some other guy?"
-Oh no.
"1 9 6 9 what's that sound?"
-Oh no.
Keeping down the underground

Oh no...

The end has no end the end has no end
The end has no end the end has no end

He want it easy; he want it relaxed
Said I can do alot of things, but I can't do that
Two steps forward, then three steps back
It won't be easy

"Won't you take a walk outside?"
-Oh no.
"Can't you find some other guy?"
-Oh no.
"1 9 6 3 what's that sound?"
-Oh no.
Keeping down the underground

Oh no...

The end has no end the end has no end
The end has no end the end has no end
The end has no end the end has no end
The end has no end the end has no end...back to top
I Can't Win
That was you up on the mountain
All alone and all surrounded
Walking on the ground you're breaking
Laughing at the life you're wasting
1 - 2 tries won't do it
You do it all your life and you never get through it
Everything they had to say
Had been erased in just one day

"Good try
We don't like it"
"Good try
We won't take that shit."

I can't win.

Things in bars that people do
When no one wants to talk to you
Failing can be quite a breeze, he
Told me that these girls were easy
Happy that you said you'd mount me
Felt unlucky when you found me
Some nights come up empty handed

Yes, I'll take it

Wait now
By the sidewalk
Hold on
Yes, I'll be right back.

I can't win.

Yeah, I
Wait for something
"Cool it
We won't take that shit"
"Good try
We don't like it"
-Hold on,
Yes, I'll be right back.back to top
