all Yellowcard lyrics



Struck
Where is your inspiration,
you lost it oh so long ago
so much for innovation,
I saw this coming long before
You had no motivation,
your hopes are high but Trapped below,
This constant competition,
we've won but your still keeping score

But I grew up, wishing on a star
You think, I won't ever get too far

So high on dedication,
it feels so good to get away
From all this repetition,
this angry town, this battleground
So now we'll break tradition
we'll leave you swimming in our wake
Without your inspiration,
you won't survive
you'll surely drown

But I grew up, wishing on a star
You think, I won't ever get too far (2x)

Where is your inspiration,
you lost it oh so long agoback to top
Drifting
When I look into your eyes, I can see
Such a sad man in disguise
Waiting, wishing, dreaming, drifting from me
Hurts my heart to hear you cry
Waiting, wishing, dreaming, drifting from me

I don't know you anymore, wish I knew what's wrong
Can't we try to slam that door, start a brand new song

I know you're lonely and you cry, wondering why
I know it's lonely but if once, you could help me understand
What it takes to be a man
Look back on what you've said, and the life you've led
Is it what you dreamed when you were young like me.
Now it's time you took something back
just for the sake of your mind.
When I look into your eyes, I can see
Life has buried you alive
Waiting, wishing, dreaming, drifting from me
You can't breathe
Heart as big as ocean's wide
Waiting, wishing, dreaming, drifting from meback to top
Something of Value
All that I need to hear from you
Something of value but something untrue
All that I wished that I'd find within you...

See how what she wanted and she needed
Tore it all down in the end
Some how like a sickness she infects me
She's simple but deadly my friend

All that I needed to hear from you
Something of value but something untrue
All that I wished that I'd find within you
Stings when I see all the ways that you...

Took me for granted and told me it's through
Picked from my pockets and smiled
Empty is nothing and nothing is you
Think I'll just sit for a while

See how what I wanted and I needed
It wasn't enough in the end
Somehow with a quickness I forgot her
I realized she wasn't my friendback to top
Trembling
, hold me now

I'm torn between silence and violent expression
tired of believing everyone wants to care
and cherish someone I'm so scared of never having anyone

Haunted by my abandoned dreams
Tiny voices where would be screams

Now be still, it won't be long

We will be together in search of a new life
Striving as one in this world to find something pure
I'm missing you now
I'm quite sure
That I've finally found someoneback to top
Sureshot
Get up face this day
Find some way to make the mean kids pray
Playing it safe, it's your morals at stake
You're a young man who's willing to wage war
Break from the mold, never do what your told
After all what are feelings of rage for

So I say, I got a sureshot way to work things out
All of this arguing has worn you down
I got a sureshot way to kill your doubts
Find what your following and chase it down

Get up, face this year
days will fade with all your childhood fears
All of the nights, all of the friends and the fights
You're a young man, who's burning to break free
Here are your rights and your name's up in lights
Don't abuse be the best that you can be

Bye mom and dad, you're all I had
I'm finding out I'm all alone, I am all alone
Break from the mold

I've got a sureshot way to work things out
all of this growing up has worn you down
I've got a sureshot way to kill your doubts
find what your following and chase it downback to top
Big Apple Heartbreak
This can't be home anymore
If you think i have not been missing the way she breathes
You are mistaken my friend I've falling down
So put your mouth on my bloody knees

One night with me and I've broken your trust
I hate to be the bond you know is gonna bust
Hurting lungs from breathing sighs of disgust
This can't be home anymore

Now cold concrete blank walls are
Staring into your lonely eyes
I duck behind them and hope that you won't cry
And ask for answers to why I made you cry

I never wanted us to fade out
Resting on a love that fell apart
Where are you, I need you
You still have my heart

Open up my heartback to top
Cigarette
Yellowcard - Cigarette
*karen* (crazcutie@yahoo.com)

..::Cigarette::..

Watching the days burning out like a cigarette
just a few drags to go
Built me up
and broke me down
somehow
Everything just seemed so clear to me
nothing left to know
I'll love you right and I'll love you pure
right now

How can you say
that it's too late
To save us now

And I would wait for you
if you would wait for me
And I will wait for you
if you would wait for me

Intoxicated
the edge is serrated
so easily torn from the core
I blushed the first time
but you blushed the last time
my eyes in your mind
regenerated these feelings of hatred
I long for your love evermore
You built me up and you broke me down
this time.back to top
October Nights
Warm October nights
You came and cuddled next to me, baby yeah yeah yeah
Our noses brushed so close
I wished it was our souls
Drifting off to sleep
I could hear the little snores you made
watching eyes shut tight
Like doors to something sweeter where you rest
Tear me off a piece of blanket
keep me warm and we can make it
Here's my heart, I'll let you break it
Touched your skin and I can't take it
Light will creep in soon
And I still haven't slept a wink, baby yeah yeah yeah
I wish the sun would hide its head
So I could watch you dream some more
Wished the sun would hide its head
So I could watch you dream some more
I wanna watch you dream some more
I wanna watch you dream some more
I wanna watch you dream some more
I wanna watch you dream some more girl
I wanna watch you dream some more
I wanna watch you
I wanna watch you dream some more
I wanna watch you dream some more girl
I wanna watch you dream some more
I wanna watch you
Tear me off a piece of blanket
keep me warm and we can make it
Here's my heart, I'll let you break it
Touched your skinback to top
Rock Star Land
Christmas break of ninety eight just flipped me upside down
One coast out to the other, following the sound
Headed west to get the best of what we all knew then
One ocean to another, waves come crashing down
Carrying just me and Stephanie, she held my hand
Told me, why, I was
Blazing down that highway on my way to Rock Star Land

California, a place they say glistens gold.
I wanna go there and never come back home.

Staring up at freeway signs in dreams that make me sad
One coast out to the other
One ocean to another
We cruised out to the other side

Loved us in Nebraska how they cheered us in Mattane
Told me why, I, was
Blazing down that highway on my way to Rock Star Land

California, a place they say glistens gold.
I wanna go there and never come back home.

California, a place they say glistens gold.
I wanna go there and never come backback to top
For Pete's Sake
So I'm left wondering
There is so much left I wish that I could say to you
Silence I keep
For fear of breaking myself down and maybe getting through
Getting through to you

For Pete's Sake
Let's see straight
Clench your fists up in rage
Hurts to know
We could throw
All this time away

Let's try and work it out
Please don't be angry anymore I'm on your side
I don't want to fight
Put this hate aside
Get back to a place where you and I can still be friends

You want it, you need it
And all the answers you're racing to find out
They might outrun you in the endback to top
A.W.O.L.
Maybe it's not over yet
Somewhere inside him there must be some
New dream awaiting to topple the rest
When he finds himself
Feeling alive yet alone
Maybe the best he can get is still out of his reach

Ran from the life that he hates
Hoping to find some new beginning
Abandoned the future they gave and
Took away knowing what they would say

Destined to rise above all of the
Simplified answers they gave him
Back there when surrounded by
Love he could not make sense
Of feeling alive yet alone
Maybe the best he can get is
Simply burned by fate

Yet he knows he's the champion of the planet
But he's told he was wrong for somehow deciding to...back to top
