Somebody turn the lights on, somebody tell me what's wrong,
I'd be lying if I told you,
Losing you was something I could handle,
Somebody turn the lights on, somebody tell me how long,
all this darkness will surround you,
Cuz I'm burning for you,
Burning like a candle.
I'm a cable-car, you shake the wires I hang off
And the games you play, it's not just you they're doing wrong
People fall to their demise, but you and I, we're doing fine
So I guess that's fine
And I left you sleeping with an address by your bed
'Cause no one writes real letters anymore, oh, oh
Hey firetruck, dim your lights
The red paint peeled off underneath was blue all along
you could have picked a lighter shade.
The sun has come up and the time is here
I stare into your room and see that your still not there
I'm reflecting the paramedics, and it's all falling apart.
Your heart stands still, but time moves on
Whoever thought that it could go wrong
It's infectious and pathetic
and we're all falling apart.
Hummingbird, you've lost your bedroom eyes, oh, mmm
Stole this night for you and me
All I've got are some tin cans, some string, my back and a trampoline
I've got a slowdown family locked up inside my speakers
Gasping for air and screaming for quiet and freedom
We all need a friend who's a poet and locked away
So the things he reads and hears won't affect what he writes and says
You know that actions speak louder than words
I thought we were past that, forget what you heard
Pay no attention, better to shut out the lights
Than to find yourself at home all alone thinking
Problems won't disappear
When I look you in the eye something isn't right
Problems will interfere and I don't think we'll survive
I've built it up so high my teardrop waiting for the fall out
This must be the way down.
At best we're amateur cartographers & terrible photographers,
I'll hang these maps on your wall,
then just spin & point to find the best path to follow.
I swear i'll never miss an adventure,
say you'll never miss an adventure?
Help me help me somebody save me,
I keep running she keeps on chasing,
Reminds me all the time; not matter where you go I'll always be watching you.
This is the first time I let it show, I should have never got personal,
The mood was set and the lights were on,
What do you think could ever...
I didn't know that she was normal when I caught her eye.

She hangs around the boulevard she's a local girl with local scars
She got home late, she drank so hard the bottle ached
and she tried but nothing's dear in a bar full of flies.
so she takes, she understands when she gives it away.
You got places to go you got people to know
You got plans to get your shit together
Did you take it too far? Did you forget who you are?
Did you stash your soul into the closet
A passion in your caress flows from your fingertips
I pray for the day I hear those precious words pass through your lips
Wishing upon a star from up above
That soon you'll look at me and say I'm the one that you love.
Am I the one?
Am I the one that you love?
She left a note right bye the phone
don't leave no message cause this ain't no home.
And she cried, she cried so long her tears ran dry
Then she laughed,
'cause she knew she was never comin' back.
She said man I'm gonna get outta this town.
She remembers the day they met right down to the minute
Her life has never been the same
Sitting alone in the dark staring into the night
Her life has never, never been the same she cries
It's a mystery, can't anybody see how much this is hurting me?
It's black magic it's the season of the witch,
blame the moon.
It's all she loves, It's all she hates its all too much for her to take
she can't be sure just where it ends or where the good life begins
So she took a train to a little old town without a name
She met a man he took her in, then fed her all the same bullshit again
'Cause he lied so she screamed
it's a different place but the same old thing.
Laughin till it pisses everybody off, pullin up my dress at a dinner meeting
Kissin til my lips are ready to fall off, screamin all night then just say I'm singin
Yeah these are some of my favorite things.
Gold butterflies and gum on a string
Yeah these are some of my favorite things but doin nothin is my favorite one
Cashin in on the glory of my biggest mistakes.
Hello again my friend , it's been sometime
I try and read you in your shifting eyes
Your hands are trembling as I hold 'em in mine
How ya living?
You were the talker and I was the clown
We grew up wondering how we would get out
But you're still talking.
If I whisper my thoughts would you hear the chanting of my heart?
Phrasing melodies unsung in the dark saying hold me through the night
Hear the music from my room calling out to you
Come home to me soon.
keep up the comments.

This is why you should never, ever get your hopes up.
This is why you should see the glass as half empty.
So when the whole thing spills, you aren't as devastated.
I'm a sucker for the sweet talkers . the ones that treat me right, the ones that call randomly or
to just say goodnight the ones that pull my hair back loosely behind my ears the ones that challenge me
and make me face my fears.
When I was with him, I didn't have to be perfect, or even try for perfect.
He already knew my secrets, the things I'd kept hidden from everyone else, so I could just be myself.
Which shouldn't have been such a big deal. But it was.
I will never regret you or say that I wish I'd never met you,
because once upon a time you were exactly what I needed.
i love how we laugh at the same things we both have dorky smiles
and get caught staring at each other; and then look away fast
and pretend nothing happened, like you haven't been on my mind all these weeks.
Don’t send me mixed signals, I don’t like the confusion it brings
I'd rather have the honest truth even if it hurts,
because then I wouldn’t waste my time depending
on false hope to keep me hanging on.
being heartbroken sucks.

You love me, I love you harder.
You're the direction I follow to get home
When I feel like I can't go on you tell me to go
And it's like I can't feel a thing without you around
and don't mind me if I get weak in the knees,
cuz you have that affect on me, you do.
Everything you say, every time we kiss I can't think straight
but I'm ok.
And I can't think of anybody else who I hate to miss
as much as I hate missing you.
In the dark it's getting hard to breathe suffocating, something's wrong,
I feel so incomplete.
They stop and stare and try to drag us down
Light the fuse, Flip the switch
Baby, hold your ground
You and me they wanna break us
Let's shake it up cause they will never take us.
It took two days, for me to figure out
This isn't working out, but I lost my way
I drove all night, just to be with you
But you weren't worth that you, I gotta hit the breaks
Now you know, get up and go.
A car wreck on the highway
Now you're burning by the side of the road.
You were talking to her but messing with me
It’s finally clear you’re blurring the lines
Are you disturbed? Oh, now you care,
Why do you race through my red lights?
Can’t understand I’ll slow it down for you
Tell me how can you sleep? How can you breathe?
Baby tell me how, how you love me now
Tell me how can you sleep? How can you breathe?
I hate when you say how you love me now.
Homecoming, I’m coming my sweet mistake
Summer’s over, hope it’s not too late
I’m pacing, impatient, up in my head
Taken back to the sidewalk where we met
and carved out our names.
Do you remember that?
Let’s make a mess steal a kiss in the moment
You and me everything that could be, touch,
Don’t go stay as long as you like
Let’s get reckless
Dance with our hands to the beat, don’t let this slip throw our fingers
It feels insane don’t you put up a fight
Let’s rough it up till they shut it down
Right here is where the party starts with you and me
The power lines went out and I am all alone
But I don’t really care at all, not answering my phone
All the games you played the promises you made
couldn’t finish what you started,
Only darkness still remains.
Lost sight couldn’t see,
When it was you and me.

Search the skies.
There’s darkness only moments after light, then it fades.
The horizon forms into a massive wave.
So run and hide. You’re the only one
That thinks you should stay alive.
If she’s the undertow, she’s taking everything I own,
and pulls me out to sea and begs for me to drown.
I’ve been fighting the urge to text him and tell him that I miss him.
I don’t want him to know anymore. I wonder if he even misses me at all.
It’s easiest when I don’t see him, I won’t deny that. But I just want to be
able to see him without it hurting. I don’t want him out of my life forever.
I don’t want him to forget me.
Do you know what it feels like to fall helpless,
Feeling your head implode into your chest.
You glare through your skull, eyes fixed,
On the traitor that pushed you off into the abyss.
For all we know, this was the cause of mistakes and stories
But we all know, that some of us won’t take this lightly
Nice and slow, we force the door of the aircraft open
And look below and feel proud without making a sound
Mark me, you're ripping me apart.
Pierce me, and go straight for my heart.
No one gave me honor.
They all gawked and taunted.
All will know this rooftop serves its purpose quite well.
Cut the crap you’ve got to be kidding me.
I turn to look up. You’re smiling down at me.
This parachute is worthless now
Seven meters from the ground.
I plummet down.
That face I made let’s you know that I think you’re a disgrace
“Find me!” I heard her call.
“Won’t you try? I need you now.”
Tell her what you thought about when you gave up.
Did you justify your selfish pride or are you just plain oblivious? You fool.
Once a day, same line. Same time.
Imagining her blues eyes in black lines.
You’ve been away.
That’s not a crime. Not a crime.
Certainly. She’ll be fine. She’ll be fine.
No matter what, once in your life,someone will hurt you. That someone will take all that you are,
and rip it into pieces and they won't even watch where the pieces land. But through the breakdown,
you'll learn something about yourself. You'll learn that you're strong.
And no matter how hard they destroy you, that you can conquer anyone.
He threw her away, phone lines and letter replies.
Without a gaze he erased her face.
He’s not schooled at giving up.
He felt she just held him back.
Negligence was his favorite weapon.
He’s not schooled at giving up.
