you say ‘so, convince me to stay’ i luckily am trained and say ‘stay’ you say ‘baby, don’t toe the line. don’t you think that love should be blind and unwise?’ you’ve been going, going gone if only in my mind and it’s taken so long but i feel light you say ‘baby, don’t take your time anymore... don’t you think that love should be pure and kind?’ just do what you want to do go where we’re going to just do what you want to do and hope that love will follow you
2.
i listen to you talk about your whistling band, ride your bikes to bad racket, climb the ladder and up on the roof we’re passing pipes like we’re good old friends but i know what i want and i can’t help feeling it slate blue eyes noone ever tries to win me over so thanks, even though it’s just a little taste slate blue skies noone ever tries to stay up later than they want to even though it’s heaven slipping into sleeping states i listen as you try to take my breath away but it’s not what you do it’s what you don’t say if i never look over you could never not stay and when the sun comes up we’ll have someone to blame fight it now if you have to i understand your mistakes pretty soon it’ll all blow over and i’ll go back to where i came from
3.
you’re only here cause it’s cold i bet my life on it the friends i called didn’t know where you are or who you’re with could i be the one, the one for you, or is this where it’s done that’s something new if either one could admit to what we did we’d have it over with but you’re only here cause you’re insane doing the same, same blaming again and i walk into it like it’s ever changed wag my finger, tell you why you’re wrong then i keep on coming back and i got no more songs to write about it
4.
be careful, it’s tricky pop the top and suck it down i’ve waited so long to tell you i’m sorry that now i’m holding out for luck that i will meet you on the street although you live so far from me this summer i wondered if you had company in your car teach the streets in warm weeks to somebody wondering who you are, really, cause you can smile like a silly kid or make the fun out of any whim change my life, add it up if pines whip and i sit, will it be enough? what would change if you fell in love? all that i’m dreaming of...
5.
a kiss on the cliff is worth ten on the lips and more you seem like a shadow but heal me enough to know that the silly games he’s been playing are saving lives and taking names we are the lucky ones you are so lucky, son noone else is as lucky as... so if you’re watching me, keep watching sit and tingle like you can’t stop if you’re missing then all you’re missing is you

everything’s going according to planned when the light breaks in and it’s blue again i can’t see him wait for this morning for wasting lives, i’ve been named if it’s right, don’t waste if it’s driving haste, you can’t feel him now i’m calling out it’d be wise to catch yourself oh, so i’m bad but i retreat and whine you see it, you’re mourning my life you are stumbling now but i’m blind, so blind when i’m caught anymore... why am i waiting - so i could lie? when i’m bored in the middle of the day and i fall into dreaming the paint’s snow white and before it dries, you can’t feel him oh, i’m lonely but something keeps me going in the sun i’m blind and at night i don’t mind the faraway stay if i’m down like i believe you to be come, stay if i’m down like i believe you to be come, stay upstairs you’ve been lysed by her there you’ve been taking my days taking my home taking my ways like doubt could do

trip’s almost over did you get a good look at the parts that fall open in my favorite book chapters on romance are falling apart a comforting friend for my lonely heart since i knew you would i take extra long in the shower when you say you know me it’s a bittersweet conspire sometimes i’m a loser i will stump you and confuse you about things you cannot fix sometimes i’m amazing i will blow your mind, baby, and that’s why you’ll stick to me oh the energy that’s spent to keep a girl content

please don’t answer my call cause i just couldn’t stand it at all if you were any less than you at your best when you hear my song on the radio will your teary eyes be covered by the catchy parts that go i miss you, i miss you all over the refrain it’s a different kind of love by the same name i see you, i see you time and again in my dreams i’m with you, i’m with you frame by frame it’s a different kind of love by the same name baby says he’s crying but stays i can see it all over your face so if you’re down, just find me around i’m on the corner, i’m in your car i’m waiting for you with open arms you said i’d be growing up instead i’ve taken so long now i’ve found a different way to go it’s never been so easy, you never tried so hard to please me
9.
without bother i try harder than running-around-on-you maybe someday games that you play will get old to you, too i count on my fingers the things i thought i knew and sabotage the mirage of our future cause if i were a winner like you wanted me to be then wouldn’t i fix everything for free? riddle-writing nights have explained more about you to me than any lines i’ve drawn from a to b when i come down from my seek-around will you catch me then? i’m hot as a potato when i’m out of the oven watch me, watch me as i fall from grace baby, baby will you cover your face?

Official Video: http://youtu.be/sWCUHse0Y20 romance and stars take me out, make me think about it long and hard if that’s all/everything/more that i could be looking for you need it so believe it retreat into your mind why are we tomorrow when that’s all behind us? you see what i see, it’s romance and stars take me out, make me think about it it’s not so hard now you’ve got it all make me think i am bitter to consider it this far you need it, so believe it retreat into your mind why are we all tomorrow when all of that’s behind us... i couldn’t believe it,,, wouldn’t it be great... romance and stars, where you are see you almost would be gone if you couldn’t wait for me with all this we could lose it and be free, free, free wouldn’t that be great?

in your eyes i’m lost again let’s not pretend it’ll only last a little while, we both feel it comin in i’ll go a million miles an hour and you’ll stay behind me you say that now we go but then they find a way back to guide me in your mind we’re still best friends like the day we met back then we didn’t know anything past times the wiser gets all those times you’ve missed me now with all the wines and the waves by all designs you miss me now can we start over, make it like we never knew you go a million miles an hour and i’ll stay behind me well done, few will find or ever know that no waste can love me all you had to say was better than the war you wrote where noone can replace you or decide in your mind i’m lost again the changin of my dress when i stand, the blue lights on my skin, you’ll fill in the rest i’ll go a million miles an hour and you’ll stay behind me wait for the sour lookin smile that will come with what you find near we are to ties that bind you already know
