all Ataris lyrics

Giving Up on Love
These past few weeks
I've been confused
Sometimes I wonder if
I'm better off alone.

You fall in love
Then break your heart.
You fall in love again
Its never ending.

I used to have this friend
Who took his fiance
To see billy idol
A couple weeks before
Their wedding day.
The chick got backstage
And left my friend outside.
Next day he called
From a hotel
Asking for a ride.

I guess I'm giving up on love (x3)
'cause it really kind of sucks

And growing tired
Why am I always
So attracted to drama?

So here I am
Grown up at 23
Will someone tell me
What it takes to be happy?

I play in my band
And write a lot of songs
About relationships
And how mine went wrong.
Maybe I'll meet that special
Girl along the way
Then she'll break my heart
And leave me crying.back to top
Summer Wind Was Always Our Song
These break-up songs make sense again
And I really wish they didn't.
Sinatra's singing summer wind
And I'm thinking of the night we met.

Just one last time
Can I hear you say?
You're my little boy
I never want you to go away

Where are you?
Please believe in me.
I'm not hanging up the phone
'til I hear you say,

I love you.
I need you near.
Just give me one last chance
And I'll never let you down again.

Oh and what I wouldn't give
Just to kiss your lips again
To hold your hand next to my heart
And wake up with you in our apartment.

Just one last time
Can I call you my sweetheart? ? ?
My best friend
Why do all good things come to an end.back to top
Bad Case of Broken Heart
Today I'm missing something
In this small new england town.
Here's to you my best friend.
Just wanted to say that I miss
Having you around.

I'm staring at your picture
And dreaming that I could hold your hand.
We'd walk down to the ocean
And I would write your name in the sand.

They say sometimes you need some time apart
But I've got a bad case of broken heart.
And you're the only one who's got the cure.
And I can't live another day without seeing you smile.

2000 miles between us and I guess that I'm the one to blame.
Relationships and heartaches,
These two things are one and the same.

The radio plays a love song.
I smash my fist right through the dial.
Here's to the broken hearted.
A generation born in denial.back to top
Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left Right, B, A, Start
Today was a good day.
I didn't even have to use my a.k.
At least I didn't get my heart broken anyway
Wasting time in east new jersey.
Guess I could tell you 'bout
The snow covered rooftops,
Sunsets, shooting stars and picturesque backdrops.
Or how I went and hung out at quick-stop
And pretended that I was in clerks.

Sometimes you gotta stop and remember
That your not gonna live forever.
Be young, think smart, stay true
And just follow your heart.

Remember the times we watched karate kid
And memorized every line
Skipped school and went to the arcade
Hung out and played galaga all day.
Stole a car and we drove to michigan.
600 miles with no destination.
Except to get in the car and drive
And see where we'll end up.

Sometimes you gotta stop and remember.
That your not gonna be young forever.
Think smart, have fun, stay true
And don't ever grow up.

Out of all I've learned in life
You always keep your friends close to your heart.
'cause who will help you if you're falling down.

And everything is o.k.back to top
Road Signs and Rock Songs
Postcards on the floor
But this pen can't write lonliness no more.
Waking up all alone
On the opposite side of the coast.

I'm commited to insecurity and you.
And love is overated.
It leaves you devistated
Heart ripped in two

Roadside state of mind
Boulevard of broken dreams washed out this time
After time I was lost and looking
But knew I'd never find
What is mine in a world that's so unkind.

And love is overated.
It leaves you devistated.

The only things I know are
Road signs and rock songs and lonely hotel rooms.
But still I need you here, what's new?

It's 6am. las vegas doesn't look so cool
Once the sun come up.
I draw the blinds and I dream of you.

I'm committed to all these memories of you.
And love is overated.
It leaves you devistated.
Love is overrated.back to top
If You Really Want to Hear About It...
Another lonely seaside town
Where the seasons closed it down.
But if you close your eyes
You can almost hear the sounds of crowds gone by.

Another year you'll all be here
Falling in love and watching sunsets and sunrises.
It'll be grand and just what you planned
'til tomorrow comes and you've said your last goodbyes.
He says he'll write, but he won't write
And you will waste your time
So stay the fuck home and greet everyone with goodbye.

On this lonely winter's day
While all the crowds were still away
I realized the attraction
To temporary miles and holidays.

Boardwalk dreams all boarded up
Another souvenir made to be broken.
Chasing the sun isn't my kind of fun.
I'd rather sit and catch snowflakes on my tongue.
When summers gone I won't be sad
As you cling on to all the good times that you've had
'cause being alone isn't really all that bad.

Don't ever tell anyone anything
Or else you'll wind up missing everybody.
Don't ever tell anyone anything.back to top
Fast Times at Drop-Out High
alone at last. just nostalgia and I
we were sure to have a blast.
for you it was just another sunday
in a small indiana town.
I went by the place where you and I
wrote our names in wet cement
and for a moment remembered how it felt
to have no one understand that there's this dream
and they're not part of it. how soon we do forget.
the house was gone but the piano lingers on
and so does the fire that burned it to the ground.
you can take away all of my rights to see the day
but you can't take away my love for the day.
then there's the time that you took me aside
and said I was not your only son
childhood is so fucked up.
I never had any closer friends
than the ones I had when I was young.
alone again just you and i
nostalgia wave goodbye.
I think it's time for me to go.back to top
Song for a Mix Tape
Today I made you a mix tape
And I decorated it with lots of stars.
It had all my favorite songs.
There was jawbreaker and armchair martain
Built to spill and the descendents.
Hell I even put one of ours on it.

Falling for you was the easy thing to do.
If only somehow I could make you hang around.

Today I made you a mix tape
To say exactly how I feel inside
And make you feel it to.
These are the songs that make me smile
And cry myself to sleep at night
When I'm lying without you.

I love you more than I ever loved anyone before.
Hey silly girl I'm begging you.

All of these songs they remind me of you
I hope that you like this song.

Did you ever listen to the words and melody
Do you fell the pain inside
They way that it hurts me?
When your in your room at night
I hope you'll be singing along.
And make me a tape of your favorite songs.back to top
You Need a Hug
Maybe you should work for sick of it all
Or get a job with the l.a.p.d.
Did someone switch your ritalin with ephedrine?
Just don't take your fucking problems out on me.

I'd buy you a little fuzzy bunny
I'd put you on my x-mas card list
If you'd promise not to take your job so seriously
And realize you don't have to be so pissed.

Life ain't all that bad. life ain't all that bad.
Even if henry rollins is your dad.
Life ain't all that bad. life ain't all that bad.
Buck up litter camper, don't be sad.

Maybe you could go hunting with ted nugent
And see how many animals you could kill.
I'd pay all of my friends just to hang out with you
And take you out to sizzler for a meal.

I'd take you to my favorite karoke bar
And you sing let the sunshine in.
You could stomp my ass into oblivion
But that doesn't mean I'll put up with your shit.back to top
Teenage Riot
3 years gone by and still everyone screws up our name
No matter what you do still some things never change
Seen a lot of the world, met a lot of friends
Got a lot of fond memories
There's nothing like playing a basement show
On a saturday night in pennsylvania.

Start the show, here we go
Jumping in the crowd
We've gotta tear this building down.

The cops show up as usual
To try and ruin our fun.
It's time to show 'em all
Just how it's done.

Gonna have a teenage riot.
They'll never understand
What it's like to be a kid today.
Gonna have a teenage riot.
Let's blow 'em all away.

Another night we'll be
Staying in some crack hotel
And sneaking everyone in
Through the bathroom window.

Gonna blow up everything in sight
And get chased away into the night
By some crazy bastard with a
Shotgun in his hand.

Start the show, here we go
Jumping in the crowd
We've gotta tear this building down.
The cops show up as usual
And try to ruin our fun.
Its time to tell them all to fuck off!back to top
Song # 13
The time has come to say goodbye
To all our past regrets. I'm sorry to inform you
But I doubt you'll really ever understand.

Friendships aren't built on false promises
I've failed without defeat.
In this game of disrespect
I'm a victim a small town tragedy.

Here's the difference between you and i
I'll tell the truth and count my blessings
So thanks for all you've done
But I won't let you get the best of me.

You think I'm just a kid but
You don't fucking get it.
I'm strong in my conviction
And don't you forget it.

So many things are left unsaid
But I won't even waste my time
For us to go our separate ways
I hope you miss me when I'm gone.

Friendships aren't built on false promises.
I've failed without defeat.
In this game of disrespect
I'm a victim of small town rivalry.

Farewell to all my friends
With self respect intact.
Nothing will last forever
Never looking back.

End is forever.back to top
Hello and Goodbye
So long my friend, don't say goodbye
Just give me one last kiss beneath this glowing sky.
We'll go walking through the park
And hang out in the rain.
Tell a joke and watch me smile
As we drink away the day.

And know the next time that you
Make a wish upon a star
I'll be wishing on the same one that you do
And every night I'm all alone
In some burn out highway town
I'll be thinking of the day that I met you.

Hello again, it's been to long.
What happened to our love
Since the last time I was gone?

I detach myself again
And lose something everytime.
The solutions in the problem
Temporarily alright.

And know the next time that you
Make a wish upon a star
That sometimes it might actually come true.
Our conversation can't consist of hello and goodbye
And the silence between saying I love you.
And sometimes I wonder 'bout that too.back to top
