Drunk And With Dreams

Someone has got to go on believing
Someone has got to speak of a feeling
Someone has got to let down their guard
For someone
And I’ll be the one, be the one, I do not mind
And if you should touch me know that I'm made
That I’m made of fire
 
Drunk and with dreams I’m lost out at sea
With my only map I have memories
And how else do you suggest I get back to that place
With only one memory I've ever seen its face
 
Though I keep it alive like a bell underwater
Rings in my head and as long as it’s ringing
It was once said, it was once said
I’ll be the one, be the one, I do not mind
And if you should touch me know that I'm made
That I’m made of fire
 
Oh lift me up oh lift me up lift me up just to bury me under
Lift me up oh lift me up lift me up just to bury me under
 

Sweet Dreams

Every time I close my eyes
Something small within me dies
Can't say if it's dark or bright
But it's all I've ever known
And when I sleep, I sleep alone
Alone
Alone
 
Every time I take a breath
Something once living inside me has left
Yes it's alive but it's just passed through
It's just left me and it's just left you
On your own
On your own
 
And I love you most
I love you most
When I first found love in my soul
And I'll give to you
Give it up to you
When I first find it in myself
And the time will come for everyone
For everyone to know
Yes the time will come for everyone
For everyone to go
 

Creator, Destroyer

I watch from a tower in the back of my mind
I watch from a window as the living walk by
Down below
Walking with quiet dreams
Walking out quiet day
And in my head
I might be sorry it makes no difference now
I might be wishing I had someplace to go
Hit the streets
Out in search for the self that has left me lying
And I never seem to notice
It's too late before I know that all
The love inside has been empty
The world we made has been ending
And like a ghost that hangs around and won't forgive its earthly sins
I've carried on this love for you
It's how my body lives
 
My darling
How are you?
How have you been lately?
I only seem to speak to you of superficial things
 
Creator, you destroy me
You know my hunger well
And yet you starve me
Until I'm begging on my knees
 
And these are a few of very many things
I can't begin to say out loud
If only this song could carry us on
But I know I'm only entertaining myself
 
I felt that even after I've been stripped of all my pride
There still remains a place for you to crawl up inside
To crawl up inside
To crawl up inside
And I'm out of my mind
Out of my mind
Murderous bitch, I'm out of my mind
I'm out of my mind
To be in love with you
The way that I'm in love with you
The way that I'm in love with you
 
Fuck this and everything we've done
Fuck you
Fuck you and your lies
 

Hi-Five

I feel so lonesome I could cry
But instead I'll pass the time
Sitting lonely with somebody lonely, too
Well, there’s nothing in the world I’d rather do
Now tell me if you don’t feel this way
But all I want, all I ever need
Is someone out there to believe
 
Sometimes believe
Not always believe
Sometimes believe
 
Now we don’t have to take it too extreme
We'll keep our hands, our legs, even our lips apart
But I’m giving you my heart, my heart
Are you giving me your heart?
Your heart
 
Are you lonely too?
Are you lonely too?
Hi-five, so am I
All of your life
Stuck in time
 
I’m stuck, too
I’m stuck with you, I do, I do
Do you believe?
Of you, of you
 

Forgiven/Forgotten

All is forgiven
Always, you are forgiven
If there's one thing I fear
If there's one thing I fear
It's knowing you're around
So close but not here
So close
Oh, but not with me here
So close
But not with me here
 
All is forgotten
All is forgotten
I've made up my mind
I've made up my mind
I've wasted my time
Making up my mind
I don't know anything
I don't know anything
I don't know anything
But I love you
Yes, I do
Yes, I do
 
Will you ever forgive me
A thousand times through
For loving you?
For loving you?
For loving you?
 

Windows

Won't you open a window sometime
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
Wind in your hair, sun in your eyes
Light
Light
 
We throw our shadows down
We must throw our shadows down
We live and throw our shadows down
It's how we get around
In the sun
In the sun
 
Why can't you see
Why can't you see
Why can't you see
Are you blind
Are you blind
Are you blind
Are you dead
Already
Are you alive
Are you alive
 
Won't you open a window sometime
Won't you open a window sometime
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
Wind in your hair, sun in your eyes
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
 

Intern

Maybe you know that it's been too long
Going through the motions as you sing your song
Doesn’t matter who you are or what you've done
Still got to wake up and be someone
Still got to wake up and be someone

I don’t care what the papers say
It's just another intern with a resumé
I am going to fall in love with you some day
I'm gonna fall in love and run away
I'm gonna fall in love and run away

Everyone I know has got their own ideal
I just want to be alive, make something real
Doesn’t matter who you are or what you do
Something in the work will make a fool of you
Something in the work will make a fool of you

Pick up the phone but I swear it’s the last time
Pick up the phone but I swear it’s the last time
Falling in love and I swear it’s the last time
Falling in love and I swear it’s the last time

Give It Up

Hurts to be around you
I can't stand to hear your lying
Whenever you're beside me
A part of me is dying

And every time I see you
I tell myself I'll never
Have this feeling with another
Oh, you're in my heart forever

What is it you think I need
Everything
It's not true

Give it all up for you
Give it all up for you

Want to touch you
Show you how it feels
Whenever you're around
Take my time with you, my love

You're the one I'm thinking of
You're the one I'm thinking of
You're the one I really love

In my arms and fast asleep
In my arms and all my dreams
Where you are is where I want you
Where you are is where I want to
Where you are is where
I want to be
I want to be
I want to be

Never Be Mine

[Verse 1]
Coming from an endless place
Heaven hits me when I see your face
I go blind, every time

Hate to have to watch you go
Thought I'd been through this
Lord knows, I've been trying, I'm still trying

[Chorus]
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine

[Verse 2]
But I would watch you, I would watch you
Turn and walk away
I would watch you, look right through me
Right through every word that I say

[Verse 3]
He wants to know why
He wants to know why
I only want to know you
I want to tell him
I know the feeling
This time I swear that I do

[Verse 4]
But I would watch you, I would watch you
Turn and walk away
Yes, I would watch you, learn to love you
And her, too, if you'd only stay, but

[Chorus]
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine

[Verse 3]
He wants to know why
He wants to know why
I only want to know you
I want to tell him
I know the feeling
This time I swear that I do
This time I swear that I do
This time I swear that I do

[Outro]
But I will turn and walk away
I will watch you turn and walk away

Those Were The Days

Do you remember the way that it used to be?
I waited for you
You kept on searching with me
Feeling free
Wanting to see each other all of the time
Those were the days
Nothing to lose and nothing to find

I see how you're laughing with those you don't know as well
I hear you saying I'm the one but I wish I could tell
Funny how time can make you realize and make you realize
And then realize

But I'll take all of it
Don't want to leave it behind
I'll take all of it
If it's only real in my mind
Real in my mind
Real in my mind

Will you ever
Will you ever know the same love that I've known?
Will you ever
Will you ever know the same love that I've known?
Will you ever
Will you ever know the same love that I've known?
Love you love you love you
Even if it's all on my own
All on my own

Do you remember the way that it used to be?
I waited for you
You kept on searching with me
Feeling free
Wanting to see each other all of the time
Those were the days
Nothing to lose and nothing to find
