Dont try to explain Ive been here before the phone calls and letters of loved ones always crying and implying that when the stormy sides of dreams arrive I feel the consequences hit but Ive Ive had enough ive had too much the feeling strains me ive had too much the feeling drains me with so much at stake Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way Ive tried to escape Im drifting from shore the vaulve breaks from weight of the loved ones who leave us gliding, forward and flying out when the sunnysides of dreams have died i feel the consequences lift but I Ive had enough ive had too much the feeling strains me ive had too much the feeling drains me with so much at stake Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way Ive tried to explain, but the right words feel wrong big mistakes for the well and the loves gone and now this crying and goodbying Ive had enough ive had too much the feeling strains me ive had too much the feeling drains me with so much at stake Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way home Im Leaving behind shortcuts to find a long way

I may be used I'm not brand new But I'm not disposable Like the friendships you use To block the tears From heavy years Oh, what keeps you in the dark Did you ever even bother to spark a fire Like our parents said All fun comes to an end Is our world Suddenly unraveling We're tearing down stars We got this far and we won't stop We won't stop Remember every scar Made us who we are And we won't stop We won't Hello, hello Now I don't know What holds us back But we should let it go We save the tears To keep the souvenirs Multiplying in the dark so we'll never be able to spark a fire It's like our parents said All fun comes to an end Is our world suddenly unraveling We're tearing down stars We got this far and we won't stop We won't stop Remember every scar Made us who we are And we won't stop We won't We were young We didn't know So we went down the open road And we won't stop We won't We're tearing down stars We got this far and we won't stop We won't stop Remember every scar Made us who we are And we won't stop We won't stop We were young We didn't know We wen't down the open road We won't stop We won't We were young We didn't know (We're tearing down stars) We went down the open road We won't stop No we won't

We can't seem to sleep With a heart So overrested We see stars Long live the start of the moment That lasts when we hold it We can't seem to speak With a tongue So roped and twisted, come on We are the part of the moment That lasts when we hold it When we speak But our words won't let us say so And we wished we let it all show We started falling apart At the heart We'll be broken 'til the end We can't even breathe With lungs So black and deflated, come on Goodbye to all of the moments That die when we forget When we speak But our words won't let us say so And we wished we let it all show We started falling apart At the heart We'll be broken 'til the end Oh, no, no When we speak But our words won't let us say so And we wished we let it all show We started falling apart Oh, when we speak But our words won't let us say so And we wish we let it all show We started falling apart At the heart We'll be broken 'til the end 'Til the end

Our conversation piece for the empty-handed My life has not worked out the way I've planned Problems have all ended The answers are all stranded And the crumbling fortune cookie called my life I need some space where someone I can hold Anyone at all And lock ourselves inside Things will never change 'Cause no one has meaning for words for long to fizz Better be brave 'Cause no one cares Are you listening? Drunk and standing still as another year ends Green to red to brown to white and brown to green again Epidemics have demanded all solutions be abandoned And Hollywood's fighting for the rights to make the film And media will all inflate And critics are sure to hate And I'm outside waiting in line Things will never change 'Cause no one has meaning for words for long to fizz Better be brave 'Cause no one cares Are you listening? The sun surrounds Let's do the drill I need some space Where I can shed this skin And turn my outsides in And lock myself inside Things will never change 'Cause no one has meaning for words for long to fizz Better be brave 'Cause no one cares Are you listening? Are you there? Are you there? Are you there? Are you there? Are you listening?

The Formula 03:44
Square pegs and circle holes We are the pieces of puzzles that don't ever want to fit in Bore me with parallels I'll be perpendicular I'm watching you from across We'll never last if we follow the formula We'll draw outside of the lines just to prove We are what we are unfortunate scars But we'll be the ones you hang on to I'll be your Van Gogh and You'll be every reason why it made so much sense to lose an ear We'll never last if we follow the formula We'll draw outside of the lines just to prove We are what we are unfortunate scars But we'll be the ones you hang on to We'll never last if we follow the formula We'll break to mold just to show that we could We are what we are unfortunate scars But we'll be the ones you hang on to Show the sign We are We'll never last if we follow the formula We'll draw outside of the lines just to prove We are what we are unfortunate scars But we'll be the ones you hang on to We'll never last if we follow the formula We'll break to mold just to show that we could We are what we are unfortunate scars But we'll be the ones you hang on to We'll never last We'll fall apart We are what we are We'll never last

Sea of Old Friends Welcome home We are strangers now Everything seems scaled down Some of us never got out (of here) Here are some of the best times social cliques And old high school charms Camping out at diners Pulling false fire alarms Smoking joints at homecoming dances Never fearing all the questions Happy without any answers While we were here We had some of the best times Swimming in a sea of old friends I'll be gone Lost in a nutshell town

I've got you in my sights my advisary Im your indian painted face in feathers be my cowgirl wrapped with leather and love look forward to fighting you forever We are bound by more than just two hearts living without consequence this almost changes everything like promises made in vain We dont need to settle down we live our lives upside down to figure out we are just like love and war baby(x2) We are love and war Sharing secrets we're both spies and lovers with these weapons that won't break the skin pulling triggers bunddled undercover surviving only cause niether wants to win We are bound by more than just two hearts living without consequence this almost changes everything like promises made in vain We dont need to settle down we live our lives upside down to figure out we are just like love and war baby(x2) baby, you bring me down We wake up break up make up fall asleep and do this all again(x3) we are bound by than just these secrets here, its where we started come on what we waiting for? All is fair in love and war I'll gladly do this all again I'll gladly do this all again

Your Alibi 04:48
Sunday morning I arrive Through the dark and night's disguise Sunday morning Baby, I'm your alibi Dream got out of bed And made it stand Screaming out loud Get your feet on the ground She said "drop dead" Stuck in the clouds That hang around her head Oh will someone light a candle for me? Leading to my morning glory Sunday morning I arrive Through the dark and night's disguise Sunday morning Baby, I'm your alibi Sunday morning I arrive Through the dark and night's disguise Sunday morning Baby, I'm your alibi Give and take And get what you give The mistake it's easy to die for you Baby, it's harder to live Windows down They keep me awake Oh, man, will someone light a candle for me? Driving to my morning glory Sunday morning I arrive Through the dark and night's disguise Sunday morning Baby, I'm your alibi Sunday morning I arrive Through the dark and night's disguise Sunday morning Baby, I'm your alibi I know it don't make sense Except that this is over It makes no difference Except that this is over Oh yeah Oh yeah Conversations with my coffee and cigarettes She's as far from me as heaven But it's worth it in the end I wouldn't be here if it wasn't worth fighting for And for every mile marker on this interstate There's a reason I'm still here And while she still waits So someone light a candle for every reason she's my morning glory Sunday morning I arrive Through the dark and night's disguise Sunday morning Baby, I'm your alibi Sunday morning I arrive Through the dark and night's disguise Sunday morning Baby, I'm your alibi Yeah, singing yeah It don't make sense, at all But I'll drive around all night Oh yeah I'm singing yeah It don't make sense, at all But I'm driving all night All night

Never Enough 04:05
Hospital corners out of order I am rolling in it Curse me with a love If it's an illness then the straight jacket fits And the feeling will not change Building monuments 'round every breath that you left for me to find And every daisy will die in an effort to find if I'm on your mind Never enough Of you to keep me satisfied If you run I'm right behind 'Cause I'll never have enough of your love Roll play what you say if you were here It's all just pretend Stories in my head repeat again Until I start to believe in them I'm building monuments 'round every breath that you left for me to find And every daisy will die in an effort to find out if I'm on your mind There's never enough Of you to keep me satisfied If you run I'm right behind 'Cuase I'll never have enough Never enough Of you to keep me satisfied If you run I'm right behind 'Cause I'll never have enough of your love Oh, loving you so Behind these eyes that are brown There's a sun that goes down just for me There's never enough, enough, enough, enough of you There's never enough, enough, enough, enough of you I could never have enough, enough, enough, enough of you I could never have enough of you with me behind the walls awake Listening is never enough Of you to keep me satisfied If you run I'm right behind 'Cause I'll never have enough Never enough Of you to keep me satisfied If you run I'm right behind 'Cause I'll never have enough, enough, enough, enough, enough, enough of you I can never have enough, enough, enough, enough of you I can never have enough of you with me behind these walls awake Listening, it's never enough, enough, enough, enough of you I can never have enough

A wall of frames with no pictures in 'em It's a sunny day In a rainy city I am shameless Without forgiveness And sinking like a stone I was in an ocean once And life ever since Feels like a coffee cup I can't remember I can't remember Where I got lost along the way And memory lay Became the wreckage on my modern highway Wait, something special was lost Friendships and magazines They're the same to me Both leafed through then tossed away Into a pile Climbing higher and higher Until we're both out of date And memory lay Is now the wreckage on my modern highway Wait, something special was lost along the way Everything I've learned Never told me The applications of Experience We've all got something to hide It's alright We've all got something to hide It's alright We've all got something to hide It's alright We've all got something to hide Oh, life is a merry-go-round I think it's better to never be found out One day everyone says goodbye to the playground Life is a merry-go-round And I feel the day when all the kids find out One day everyone says goodbye Everyone says goodbye Everyone says goodbye

about

Reviews:

Its 5am, youre driving home through deserted city street in your parents car that you snuck out of the driveway. Youve been dancing all night and fallen in love at least three times. The sky to the east is just starting to turn from black to deep blue. You feel liberated, exhilarated, free. What are you listening to? Red Wanting Blue.- Performing Songwriter Magazine (June 05)
