What you want
What you got
Live your life in a crawlspace
Help you out
But you don't
Want a chance at a better life
You said you never took a ride
And now you wanna play
Well it's a big, big city
Let me show you around

And now
You crossed that line
You can't come back
Tell m e how does it feel now
Too late
Too much to forget about
Can't stop now
Tell me how does it feel now
I'm only asking
Because I wanna know
How you wanna feel

I'm a wreck
I'm a mess
I'm a spot on the pavement
I'm a number on the wall
I'll make your soul tired
I don't think I like this game
No more
It goes around and round and round
You take it one more time
One more time


Feels like you made a mistake
You made somebody's heart break
But now I have to let you go
I have to let you go

You left a stain
On every one of my good days
But I am stronger than you know
I have to let you go

No one's ever turned you over
No one's tried
To ever let you down
Beautiful girl
Bless your heart

I got a disease
Deep inside me
Makes me feel uneasy, baby
I can't live without you, tell me
What am I supposed to do about it?
Keep your distance from it
Don't pay no attention to me
I got a disease

Feels like you're making a mess
You're hell on wheels in a black dress
You drove me to the fire
And left me there to burn

Everything little thing you do is tragic
All my life before was magic
Beautiful girl
I can't breathe


I think that I'm sick
But leave me be
While my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honeybee
Be strong
Keep telling myself
That it won't take long 'til
I'm free of my disease


I think that I'm sick
But leave me be
While my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honeybee
Be strong
Keep telling myself
That it won't take long 'til
I'm free of my disease

Bright Lights

She got out of town
On a railway New York bound
Took all except my name
Another alien on Broadway

There's some things in this world
You just can't change
Some things you can't see
Until it gets too late

Baby, baby, baby
When all your love is gone
Who will save me
From all I'm up against out in this world
Maybe, maybe, maybe
You'll find something
That's enough to please you
But if the bright lights don't receive you
You can turn yourself around
And come on home

I got a hole in me now
I got a scar I can talk about
She keeps a picture of me
In her apartment in the city
Some things in this world
They don't make sense
Some things you don't need
Until they leave you
And they're things that you miss


Let that city take you in
Let that city spit you out
Let that city take you down
For God's sake turn around


All day
Staring at the ceiling making
Friends with shadows on my wall
All night
I'm hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good
For something

Hold on
I'm feeling like I'm headed for a
I don't know why

I'm not crazy I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

See me
Talking to myself in public
And dodging glances on the train
I know
I know they've all been talking 'bout me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong
With me

Out of all the hours thinking
I've lost my mind


Talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
They'll be taking me away


I will do without
The spaces in between
If you can tell me now
What it means to be
You have been found out
I have been deceived
By the one that I need

Tell me why you gotta be so cold
How'd you get so high
Why you keep me low
You don't know
Tell me how we're gonna make it last
You're ready to fly
I'm ready to crash
Don't go

You will go without
The better part of me
There will be no doubt
What this all could mean
You will be found out
I cannot believe
In the one that I need


Tell me why you gotta be so cold
Tell me anything about you I don't know

All I Need

Everywhere someone's getting over
Everybody cries and sometimes
You can still lose even if you really try
Talking 'bout the dream like the dream is over
Talk like that won't get you nowhere
Everybody's trusting in the heart
Like the heart don't die

But that's all that I need
Someone else to cling to
Someone I can lean on until
I don't need to
Just stay all through the night
And in the morning let me down
Cuz that's all that I need right now

Everywhere someone's getting over
Everybody's lied to someone
People still use other people
With a crooked smile
All around the world
There's a sinking feeling
Somewhere right now
Someone's really
Down on themselves
And don't know why


Life ain't no
Beauty show
We don't know where tomorrow ends
And when we're sad
It's kind of a drag


Hand Me Down

Someday they'll find our small town world
On a big town avenue
Gonna make you like the way they talk
When they're talking to you
Gonna make you break out of your shell
Cuz they tell you to
Gonna make you like the way they lie
Better than the truth
They'll tell you everything
You wanted someone else to say
They're gonna break your heart

From what I've seen
You're just one more hand me down
But no one's tried to give you
What you need
Lay all your troubles down
I am with you now

Somebody oughta take you in
Try to make you love again
Try to make you like the way they feel
When they're under your skin
Never once do you think that they would lie
When they're holding you
Then you wonder why they haven't called
When they said they'd call you
You'll start to wonder
If you're ever gonna make it by
You'll start to think
You were born blind


I'm here for the hard times
The straight to your heart times
When living ain't easy
You can stand up against me
Whatever may fall on you
Call on me

Someday they'll open up your world
Shake you down to the very core
They'll do their best to change you
Trying to erase you

Could I Be You

Something is wrong
With the sum of us
That I can't seem to erase
How can I be
The only one
Without a smile on my face
When now

You're laughing out loud
At just the thought of being alive
And I was wondering
Could I just be you tonight?

You show your pain
Like it really hurts
And I can't even
Start to feel mine
And I'm standing in place
With my head first
And I shake I shake I shake
And I see your progress
Stretched out for miles
And miles


This is the sound that I make
These are the words I chose
But somehow the right thing to say
Just won't come out

Cuz you're laughing out loud
At just the thought of being alive
And I was wondering
Could I just be you tonight?
I was wondering
Could I just be you


I wonder how you sleep
I wonder what you think of me
If I could go back
Would you have ever been with me
I want you to be uneased
I want you to remember
I want you to believe in me
I want you on my side
Come on

Lay it down
I've always been with you
Here and now
Give all that's within you
Be my savior
And I'll be your downfall

Here we go again
Ashamed of being broken in
Getting off track
I want to get you back again
I want you to trouble me
I wanted you to linger
I want you to agree with me
I want so much so bad
Come on


Yeah be my savior
Only love can save us now
Love save me now

Only love can save us now
I'll be your downfall
Our love can save us now
Love save me now
Lay it down
I've always been with you
Here and now
Give all that's within you
Be my savior
And I'll be your downfall

Now I'm back on my own
Yeah my feet are heavy, made of stone
I'll make you go where I go
Well they're here, can I take you home
And I'm coming home, on my back
Kissing me, your lips painted black


Hang out your window
Over my head
Stare at your feelings
To see where they end

You're waiting here
For someone else to break you
From the inside
You've been so composed
But we all know there's

Always something
Tearing you apart
Always so much longer
Than you counted on
It hits you so much harder
Than you thought
But you don't worry
Don't worry
Cuz you got soul

You're so heavy
You're so misunderstood
I spent all my wishes
Wishing times were good
When I still could
Wait around here
For someone else to take me
Past the good side
At it for so long
You don't show there's
Always something tearing you apart

You're So Real

Yes I am
I hope you think you read me
Hope I start talking crazy
Before you understand me
Are we through
You think that I'm beneath you
But you like the things that I do
Well wrap 'em up and take 'em with you

I'm alright
Hope I can sleep for one night
If not to cool my insides
Maybe to calm my backside
Shame on me
Rain on me
I got a weakness in me
I think that weakness feeds me
I don't think you think you need me

You're the best time
I ever, ever had
But I think I made you feel bad
The black fly on your necktie

But when the sun starts sinking
On your beautiful soul
Make you cry, cry baby
Make you feel so cold
Don't you know it's all right
You just got to show how you feel
Cuz that's you baby
Yeah, you're so real

Run it round in your head
Like you don't know what's on the inside
You don't know me too well
You ain't seen my bad side
Shame on me
Shame on the things that I'd be
If you could complicate me
If you could get inside me

You're the best time
I've ever, ever known
When you've got your wicked smile on
But I've cried
For the last time
I'm drying inside

And you always know just who you are
You never needed someone else
To realize yourself I'm all right
Hope I can

The Difference

Slow dancing
On the boulevard
In the quiet moments
While the city's still dark

Sleepwalking through the summer rain
In the tired spaces
You could hear her name

When she was warm and tender and you
Pulled her arms around you
There was nothing but her
Love and affection she was
Crazy for you now she's
Part of something that you lost

And for all you know
This could be
The difference between what you need
And what you want to be

Night swimming
In her diamond dress
Making small circles
Move across the surface

Stand watching
From the steady shore
Laying wide open
And waiting for

Something warm and tender while she's
Moving further from you
There was nothing that could
Make it easy on you
Every step you take reminds you
That she's walking on


Every word you never said
Echoes down your empty hallway
Everything that was your world
Just came down
It just came down

Day break on the boulevard
Feel the
Sun warming up your secondhand heart
Light swimming right across your face
You think
Maybe someday
Maybe someday


So Sad So Lonely

I found out
On a late night drive
In my winter coat
With my blood-shot eyes
My faith ain't been
No friend to me
And the way I sin
Is hanging off of me

And I'm sorry
You can't take me anywhere
Pretty soon we're almost there
Baby, one more night
It's been a long, long drive
And I'm way, way tired
I don't need no
Back-up plan

I don't want nobody
Nobody don't want me
I'm so sad so lonely
But I'm always landing on my feet

One more time
With a sad, sad smile
And your white bread friends
In the circus life
All the one-way rides
The sweet beginners
Passing on the left-hand side
With a sideways smile

And I'm always
One step from stalling
Bad trips can make great stories
Dance all night
With your ass on fire
And your hands up high
And feel me one more time


I learn to love myself
And I don't need no one else
And when a love moves on
Cuz it gets cold
Then another moves in
And it can fill the hole

I'm one more
Hopeful lying on the bedroom floor
No sense trying
When the whole thing drops
You lose your nerve
I hope you get what you deserve
