Way Away
I think I'm breaking out, I'm gonna leave you now,
There's nothing for me here it's all the same,
And even though I know, that everything might go,
Go downhill from here I'm not afraid.

Way away away from here I'll be,
Way away away so you can see,
How it feels to be alone and not believe,
Feels to be alone and not believe anything.

You can't stop me now, you can't hold me down,
You can't keep me here I'm on my way,
I made it this far now, and I'm not burning out,
No matter what you say I'm not afraid.

Way away away from here I'll be,
Way away away so you can see,
How it feels to be alone and not believe,
Feels to be alone and not believe anything.

Letting out the noise inside of me,
Every window pain is shattering,
Cutting off my words before I speak,
This is how it feels to not believe.

Letting out the noise inside of me,
Every window pain is shattering,
Cutting off my words before I speak,
This is how it feels to not believe.

Way away away from here I'll be,
Way away away so you can see,
How it feels to be alone and not believe,
Feels to be alone and not believe anything.back to top
Breathing
Yellowcard
breathing
ocean avenue


Eyes are feeling heavy but they never seem to close
The fan blades on the celling spin but the air is never cold
And even though you're next to me i still feel so alone
I just can't give you anything you could call your own

And i can feel you breathing and it's keeping me awake
Can you feel it beating my heart sinking like a weight

Something i've kept locked away behide my lips
I can feel it breaking free with each and every kiss
I could'nt bear to hurt you but it's all so different now
Things that i was sure of they have filled me up with doubt

And i can feel you breathing and it's keeping me awake
Can you feel it beating my heart sinking like a weight

I can feel you breathing, it's keeping me awake
Could you stop my heart it's always
Beating, sinking like a weight

How am i supposed to feel about the things i've done
I don't if i should stay or turn around and run
I know that i hurt you things will never be the same
The only love i ever knew i threw it all away

And i can feel you breathing and it's keeping me awake
Can you feel it beating my heart sinking like a weight

I can feel you breathing, it's keeping me awake
Could you stop my heart it's always
Beating, sinking like a weightback to top

Yellow Card - Ocean Avenue




There's a place off ocean avenue
Where I used to sit and talk with you
We were boh sixteen and it felt so right
sleeping all day satying up all night

There is a place on the corner of cherry street
We would walk on the beach in our bare feet
We were both 18 and it felt so right
sleeping all day staying up all night

If i could find you now
Things would get better
We could leave this town
And run forever
Let you waves crash down
On me and take me away

There's a pieceof you thats here with me
It's a everywhere i go its everything i see
When i sleep i dream and it gets me by
I can make believe that youre here tonight

If i could find you now
Things would get better
We could leave this town
And run forever
I know somewhere somehow
Let you waves crash down
On me and take me away

I remember the look in your eyes
When i told you tht this was goodbye
You were begging me not tonight
Not here , not now
We're looking up at the same night sky
Keep pretending the sun will not rise
We'll be togeher for one more night
Somewhere, somewhere

If i could find you now
Things would get better
We could leave this town
And run forever
I know somewhere somehow
Let you waves crash down
On me and take me awayback to top
Empty Apartment
called me out, you stayed inside
one you love is where you hide
shot me down as i flew by
crash and burn
i think sometimes you forget where the heart is

answer no to these questions
let her go learn a lesson
its not me, you're not listening now
can't you see something's missing?
you forget where the heart is

take you away from that empty apartment
you stay and forget where the heart is
someday if you ever loved me you'd say
'its ok'

waking up from this nightmare
how's your life? what's it like there?
its it all what you want it to be?
does it hurt when you think about me?
and how broken my heart is

take you away from that empty apartment
you stay and forget where the heart is
someday if you ever loved me you'd say
'its ok'

its ok be angry and never let go
it only gets harder the more that you know
when you get lonely if no one's around
you know that i'll catch you when you're falling down
we came together, but you left alone
maybe someday i will see you again
and you'll look me in my eyes and call me your friend

take you away from that empty apartment
you stay and forget where the heart is
someday if you ever loved me you'd say
'its ok'back to top

What's a dad for, dad?
Tell me why I'm here dad.
Whisper in my ear,
that Im growing up to be a better man, dad.
Everything is fine, dad.
Now that you are mine, dad.
Cause I know Im growing up to be a better man.

Father, I will always be
that same boy that stood by the sea.
And watched you tower over me.
Now Im older I want to be the same as you.

Whats a dad for, dad?
Taught me how to stand, dad.
Took me by the hand, dad,
And showed me how to be a bigger man, dad.
Listened when you talked, dad.
Followed where you walked, dad.
And you know that I will always do the best I can... I can.

Father, I will always be ..(always be)
that same boy that stood by the sea.
And watched you tower over me. ..(over me)
Now Im older I want to be the same as you.
The same as you.

Father, I will always be
that same boy that stood by the sea.
And watched you tower over me.
Now Im older I want to be the same as you.

Father, I will always be
that same boy that stood by the sea.
And watched you tower over me.
Now Im older I want to be the same as you.back to top
Only One
Broken this fragile thing now,
And I can't, I can't pick up the pieces,
And I've thrown my words all around,
But I can't, I can't give you a reason,
I feel so broken up, and I give up,
I Just want to tell you so you know,

Here I go,
Scream my lungs out and try to get to you,
You are my only one, I let go,
Theres just no one who gets me like you do,
You are my only, my only one.

Made my mistakes let you down,
And I can't, I can't hold on for too long,
Ran my whole life in the ground,
And I can't, I can't get up when you're gone,
And somethings breaking up, I feel like giving up,
I won't walk out until you know,

Here I go,
Scream my lungs out and try to get to you,
You are my only one I let go,
There's just no one who gets me like you do,
You are my only, my only one.

Here I go, so dishonestly,
Leave a note, for you my only one,
And I know, you can see right through me,
So let me go and you will find someone.

Here I go,
Scream my lungs out and try to get to you,
You are my only one, I let go,
Theres just no one, no one like you,
You are my only.

My only one (x4)
You are my only, my only one.back to top
Miles Apart
yellowcard
miles apart
ocean avenue


If I could I would do all of this again
Travel back in time with you to where this all began
We could hide inside ourselves and leave the world behind
And make believe there's something left to find

We'll be miles apart
I'll keep you deep inside
You're always in my heart
A new life to start
I may be leaving but you're always in my heart

Now we've all grown up, gone on and moved away
Nothing I can do about it, nothing I can say
To bring us back to where we were when life was not this hard (life was not this hard)
Looking back it all just seems so far, so far away

We'll be miles apart
I'll keep you deep inside
You're always in my heart
A new life to start
I may be leaving but you're always in my heart

I'd give it up for just one more day with you
Give it up for just one more day
I'd give it up for just one more day with you

I'd give it up for just one more day with you
Give it up for just one more day
I'd give it up for just one more day with you

I'd give it up for just one more day with you
Give it up, give it all away
I'd give it up for just one more day with you

We'll be miles apart
I'll keep you deep inside
You're always in my heart
A new life to start
I may be leaving but you're always in my heart

I need you now, we're miles apart
I'll keep you deep inside
You're always in my heart
I need you now, we're miles apart
I may be leaving but you're always in my heartback to top
Twenty Three
I got to tell you that he waited all his life
For someone like you to come make the wrong things right
I know he didn't have the answers all the time
But you can't tell me that you've never told a lie

We're almost twenty-three and you're still mad at me
So much that I said to you and I want to take it back now
Twenty-three and it's so sad to me
You tell the world I'm dead to you
But I know you want me back now

Was it fun for you to watch him fall apart? (Watch me fall)
And suffocate him while you held him in your arms (in your arms)
I swear to God I wish he never let you in (let you in)
And I just hope we never hear from you again

We're almost twenty-three and you're still mad at me
So much that I said to you and I want to take it back now
Twenty-three and it's so sad to me
you tell the world I'm dead to you
But I know you want me back

Wasted on you (wasted on you)
Wasted on you (so much time I've)
Wasted on you (wasted on you)
Wasted on you
On you
On you

Twenty-three and you're still mad at me
So much that I said to you and I want to take it back now
Twenty-three and it's so sad to me
You tell the world I'm dead to you
But I know you want me back nowback to top

i'm just so tired
wont you sing me to sleep
and fly through my dreams
so i can hitch a ride with you tonight
and get away from this place
have a new name and face
i just aint the same without you in my life
late night drives, all alone in my car
i can't help but start
singing lines from all our favorite songs
and melodies in the air
singin life just aint fair
sometimes i still just can't believe you're gone
and im sure the view from heaven
beats the hell out of mine here
and if we all believe in heaven,
maybe we'll make it through one more year
down here

feel your fire,
when its cold in my heart
and things sorta start
remindin' me of my last night with you
i only need one more day
just one more chance to say
i wish that i had gone up with you too
and i'm sure the view from heaven
beats the hell out of mine here
and if we all believe in heaven
maybe we'll make it through one more year
down here

you wont be comin' back
and i didn't get to say goodbye
i really wish i got to say goodbye
and im sure the view from heaven
beats the hell out of mine here
and if we all believe in heaven
maybe we'll make it through one more year
i hope that all is well in heaven
cause it's all shot to hell down here
i hope that i find you in heaven
cause i'm so...
lost without you down here
you wont be coming back
and i didn't get to say goodbye
i really wish i got to say gooooodbyeback to top
Inside Out

inside out
ocean avenue


Here. A little sympathy for you to waste on me
I know you're faking it but that's okay
And I don't want to drag it out
Don't want to bring you down
I never wanted it to end this way

Even if I wanted to
I don't think that I'd get to you
There's nothing I can say to you to make you feel alive again

Here. A little jealousy
I hope you think of me
Hope you wonder where I sleep at night
Cause I feel like I'm inside out
You got me upside down
Maybe I was holding on too tight

Even if I wanted to
I don't think that I'd get to you
There's nothing I can say to you to make you feel alive again

So don't just say goodbye to me
Just turn your back away and leave
And if you're lucky I will be your last regret, your only friend

The two of us we dream like one
The two of us, the two of us
The two of use take breath like one
The two of us, the two of us

I guess that this is over now
I guess it's called the falling out
But everyday I'm learning how to make it through this life I'm
in

Even if I wanted to
I don't think that I'd get to you
There's nothing I can say to you to make you feel alive again

So don't just say goodbye to me
Just turn your back away and leave
And if you're lucky I will be your last regret, your only friendback to top
Believe
Think about the love inside the strength of heart
Think about the heroes saving life in the dark
Climbing higher through the fire, time was running out
Never knowing you weren't going to be coming down alive
But you still came back for me
You were strong and you believed

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Be strong. Believe.
Be strong. Believe.

Think about the chance I never had to say
Thank you for giving up your life that day
Never fearing, only hearing voices calling out
Let it all go, the life that you know, just to bring it down alive
And you still came back for me
You were strong and you believed

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Be strong. Believe.

(Again today, we take into our hearts and minds those who perished on this site one year ago, and also those who came to toil in the rubble to bring order out of chaos, to help us make sense of our despair)

Wanna hold my wife when I get home
Wanna tell the kids they'll never know how much I love to see them smile
Wanna make a change or two right now
Wanna live a life like you somehow
Wanna make your sacrifice worthwhile

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Be strong. Believe.

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Be strong. Believe.

Think about the love inside the strength of heart
Think about the heroes saving life in the dark
Think about the chance I never had to say
Thank you for giving up your life that day

One Year, Six Months

one year, six months
ocean avenue


Sew this up with threads of reason and regret
So, I will not forget. I will not forget
How this felt one year six months ago
I know I cannot forget. I cannot forget

I'm falling into memories of you and things we used to do
Follow me there
A beautiful somewhere
A place that I can share with you

I can tell that you don't know me anymore
It's easy to forget, sometimes we just forget
And being on this road is anything but sure
Maybe we'll forget, I hope we don't forget

I'm falling into memories of you and things we used to do
Follow me there
A beautiful somewhere
A place that I can share with you

So many nights, legs tangled tight
Wrap me up in a dream with you
Close up these eyes, try not to cry
All that I've got to pull me through is memories of you
Memories of you
Memories of you
Memories of you

I'm falling into memories of you and things we used to do
Follow me there
A beautiful somewhere
A place that we can share
Falling into memories of you and things we used to doback to top
Back Home

back home
ocean avenue


Dont know
What I was looking for when I went home
I found me alone
Sometimes
I need someone to say
You'll be alright, Whats on your mind?

But the waters shallow here and I am full of fear,
an empty hand that after two long years

Another sunny day in cali for ni a
I'm sure back home theyd love to see it
But they dont know that what you love is ripped away
Before you get a chance to feel it

Back home
I always thought I wanted so much more
Now I'm not too sure
Cause sometimes
I miss knowing somone's there for me
And feeling free

Free to stand beside the ocean in moonlight
And light myself a smoke beneath the dark atlantic sky

Another sunny day in cali for ni a
I'm sure back home theyd love to see it
But they dont know that what you love is ripped away
Before you get a chance
Before you get a chance to feel it

Everybodys here is leaving life in fear
Of falling out of line
Tearing lives apart and breaking lots of hearts
Just to pass the time
And my eyes get red in the back of your head
This place will make you blind,
Put it all behind me and i'll be just fine

Another sunny day beneath this cloudless sky
Sometiome I wish that it would rain here
And wash the west coast dreamin from my eyes
Theres nothing real for them to see here

Another starry night in cali for ni a
I'm sure back home theyd love to see it
But they dont know that what you love is ripped away
Before you get a chance
Before you get a chance to feel itback to top
