Are you alright? Well, are you alright? Well, are you alright? Yeah... "Are you alright with change?" She said, standing in the door This state of affairs has granted us much more In terms of luxuries we can't afford But these are the things that will make our ends meet again When love means everything 'Cause we did it ourselves, ourselves Don't you want everything? For yourself So are you alright now? Love can be so unrewarding sometimes So are you alright? Pain can be so fun sometimes Are you alright with pain? Heaven sent and dancing in the form Of sex that's best undressed and on the floor Without this rush this love is just a bore But these are the things that will make our ends meet again When love means everything 'Cause we did it ourselves, ourselves I know you want everything For yourself So are you alright? Love can be so unrewarding sometimes And are you alright? Pain can be so fun sometimes Are you alright with change? Are you alright with pain? Are you alright with loving under cover lover? To numb the times that we weren't loving Or living off eachother's breath We bring the pain to realize It feels good to hurt for someone else So are you alright? So are you alright now? Love can be so unrewarding sometimes And are you alright? Pain can be so fun sometimes Are you alright? Are you alright? Are you alright with loving under cover lover? Alright, yeah

Take your time I don't need anything Take my life If you think I can help with this Oh, I'm alright I promised you all this, but I... Need some time to figure out all of this To figure out where everything went wrong When our lips divide And space begins Our love looks like soldiers falling We're falling If everything's alright Where you been? Looking for our soldiers falling We're falling Telephone line In love with a steady ring What once shined Is duller than anything Are you alright? I promised you everything, so I... Need some time to figure the reasons why Rings and fingers no longer belong When our lips divide And space begins Our love looks like soldiers falling We're falling If everything's alright Let me in Otherwise we're soldiers falling We're falling We're not communicating now And doubt's insinuating now This love is quickly fading We're not communicating now So damn the do or die If you think it'll help with this When our lips divide And space begins Our love looks like soldiers falling We're falling If everything's alright Where you been? Looking for our soldiers falling We're falling When our lips divide And space begins Our love looks like soldiers falling We're falling If everything's alright Let me in Otherwise we're soldiers falling We're falling Take your time I don't need anything

Father, what have I become? A saint to few, a monster to some I am a savior, I am chosen, I am breathless I am useless to the practical world Can you remember life's price and how you couldn't afford it? Can you remember wishing upon stars from the stairs? Can you remember when you were first courted up into orbit? And whispered to the sun Help me out of here Where am I? When all of the glitter in the sky Reflects the tears running out of our eyes Where we all hurt And we're all scared out of our minds Help me out of here Brothers, I am numb A ghost of what has yet to come I am a faker, I am hopeless, I am breathless I am useless to all of the world So can you remember life's price and how you couldn't afford it? Can you remember hanging on to hearts that need repair? And can you remember when you were first courted up into orbit? And whispered to the sun Help me out of here Where am I? And all the glitter in the sky Reflects the tears running out our eyes Where we all hurt And we're all scared out of our minds Help me out of here Help me out of here Someone save us Where am I? And all the glitter in the sky Reflects the tears running out of our eyes Where we all hurt And we're all scared out of our minds Help me out of here Help me out of here Someone save us, yeah Help me out of... Help me out of... Help me out of here

Days ago Life beat sweet as innocence Killed any chance of self-control Whether it's fact or fiction I am conflicted I am gone Say so long I am gone What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? So you added up what's right And you added up what's wrong It's what you needed So you added up what's right And you added up what's wrong Then you say so long So go Love once sweet now beats defeat And innocence has, since, not shown 'Cause when your fairy tale becomes A television rerun...you run Say so long I am gone What are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? So you added up what's right And you added up what's wrong It's what you needed So you left without a fight In spite of feeling strong Then you say so long You know you're mine You know you're mine You know you're mine You know you're mine You know you're mine You know you're mine So you added up what's right And you added up what's wrong It's what you needed So you added up what's right And you added up what's wrong So long So you added up what's right And you added up what's wrong It's what you needed So you left without a fight In spite of feeling strong Then you say so long So you added up what's right (You added up what's right) You added up what's wrong Say so long

Did you need a change of pace to counteract the tide? That rocks your weary walls on the inside Did you need to rearrange your alibis? The truth is not faking anything but... The disbelief... In your own bitter ending And the disbelief... Forgiveness of mending And the disbelief... You're breaking not bending And the disbelief... Suspending Chorus: You raise up your hands Looking for the light Searching for all your happy endings Waving your hands Trembling in the light You gather up all your happy endings Did you think you were the case that steps outside Of the box that locks your fear inside Did you think that second place would kill your pride? The truth is not shaking anything but... The disbelief... In your own bitter ending And the disbelief... Suspending Don't you want to see tomorrow? Repeat Chorus Wave goodbye Hearts apart, in pieces and parts For instance, long distance is not a good start But we can't help that we're in love We never took the time To step outside this life You know I'm right Take a deep breath And hold it inside I'll gather up all your happy endings Repeat Chorus Wave goodbye If you go... Wave goodbye

Is it coincidence I've lived my life Within the walls of this fence And it makes no sense To innocence to leave But I can't stop believing There's so much for me to see And I want to taste it all So much between you and me But not for long Have gun will travel As my life unravels at the seams I am packed and I am well-dressed Have gun will travel As my life unravels at the seams Does mother really know best? 'Cause I'm breathing, breathing in Deep inside the borderline The borderline I've known I'm breathing, breathing in Deep inside the borderline The borderline I've called my home But now I don't know Age eighteen I am evergreen on a bus Destination Columbus And on my headphones Screams Simon and Garfunkel Reaching out to me with "America" America Here I come, y'all America Have gun will travel As my life unravels at the seams And now suddenly I'm far away Have gun will travel As my life unravels at the seams I am no longer okay 'Cause I'm breathing, breathing in Breathing on the borderline The borderline I've known I'm breathing, breathing in Breathing on the borderline The borderline I call my home, whoa I call my home (No, no, no, no, no) Have gun will travel As my life unravels at the seams And where there was darkness overflows with light So have gun will travel As my life unravels at the seams For all of the rights and wrongs Now I am gone and I've never been better in all of my life 'Cause I'm breathing, breathing in Way outside the borderline The borderline I've known I'm breathing, breathing in Way outside the borderline The borderline I call my home I'm breathing, breathing in Way outside the borderline The borderline I've known I'm breathing, breathing in Way outside the borderline The borderline I call my home It's time to go

If my mind had a mouth of it's own Would it tell the world what I'm thinking? Like I'm happy to find so many sides I don't know whether I'm standing or sinking But with all the ever-changing sides I can't fill in the blank And the answers question who's more right I don't know what to think So I guess I believe in whatever I guess I believe in whatever they say I guess I believe in whatever Playing sides My dramatic pause I'm fighting loyalty here But I'm happy to find Happy to find I'm happy to find that it's not only me in here But with all the ever-changing sides I can't fill in the blank And the answers question who's more right I don't know what to think And with all the choices in this life Who knows just what to think So I guess I believe in whatever I guess I believe in whatever they say I guess I believe in whatever comes And with all the sides and where they're drawn I don't know what to think, I mean Thinking, thinking out loud Better start Thinking, thinking out loud Thinking, thinking out loud Better start Thinking, thinking out loud Better start Thinking, thinking out loud Better start Thinking, thinking out loud So I guess I believe in whatever I guess I believe in whatever they say I guess I believe in whatever comes And with all the sides and where they're drawn I don't know what to think So start thinking, thinking out loud (I guess I believe in whatever) Better start (I guess I believe in whatever they say) Thinking, thinking out loud Better start (I guess I believe in whatever) Thinking, thinking out loud Better start (I guess I believe in whatever they say) Thinking, thinking out loud Out, out loud Better start, better start, better start thinking Out, out, out, out, out, out, out, out, out, out loud Out, out, out, out loud

Hello Ice comes to mind When I think about your heart And I think about the way you steal away my emotions And I'd like to make it clear to say Hello Too late for tomorrow Yesterday's gone Where's today Life seems to be surrounded in this sorrow Can't we bring it back just one more day Hello Can you feel it, can you feel it Running through your mind Can you feel it, can you feel it Running through your mind And now You're truely free And now You're truely free And now You're truely free And now You're truel free Where the stars give their regards It is there It is there It is there That I love you Hello

Another day is here, but not quite I'm reminded of fear on the phone every night Hey, baby, anybody ever tell you your bark is worse off than the bite Then ends don't bend They break without the wrong and right So open up your heart and let it out Let your mind unwind We'll figure it out So when you open all the doors And see nothing but arrows pointing towards A future, tucked behind the clouds Chorus: 'Cause when our sun stops shining our way I guess that it's time to get out Get out of this place 'Cause when our sun stops shining our way We better turn and run 'Cause we're dead and gone We're dead here anyway Dead here anyway Oh, Kings and queers and souvenirs of city life The skyline resembles chandeliers and colored Christmas lights And isn't it funny that the heart of this city Has the heart of my life She said, "Baby, the nightmares don't have to come every night So come on and open up your heart and let it out Make your mind shut up We'll figure it out" So when you open all the doors And see nothing but arrows pointing towards A sign saying, "Get out now" Repeat Chorus Losing our light Losing our light Losing our light Losing our light We'd better pack our bags and run 'Cause I don't want to lose the sun Repeat Chorus I say we turn and run Turn and run Chasing after the sun That shined yesterday 'Cause we're dead and gone We're dead here anyway

Where do we go from here, my dear? I said we've been here before for years And for years we wanted more Has it become clear to this woman and man? Who breathe heavy for Neverland So deeper down we go down We're going deep down She said, "What goes around comes around" And deeper down we go down We're going deep down We'd rather be lost Than ever be found This is the first time I think that we found paradise This is the first time I think that we found paradise Memories of you and I barenaked Adam taking off Eve's disguise Eden's dressed with bedroom eyes Lovers uncovered we smother eachother on the floor And recharge our batteries to go Deeper down we go down We're going deep down She said, "What goes around comes around" And deeper down we go down We're going deep We'd rather be lost Than ever be found This is the first time I think that we found paradise This is the first time I think that we found paradise 'Cause this is the first time we felt alive This is the first time we found our paradise Our paradise Remember that time on the Fourth of July? When I couldn't tell the difference Between the fireworks and the fireflies And the stars in the sky 'Cause nothing ever looks as good as it does through your eyes This is the first time I think that we found paradise This is the first time I think that we found paradise 'Cause this is the first time we felt alive This is the first time we found our paradise Our paradise We're in paradise (Nothing ever looks as good as it does through your eyes) (Lost in your eyes) We're in paradise
