Dark clouds gather in the afternoon
Come together just to cry
Seagulls struggling against the wind
Falling out of the sky
Grandma's gathering aluminum cans in a rusty shopping cart
Born-againers getting their lives together while my whole world's falling apart
Open up your eyes
It's happening all around you
If it hasn't found you
Well You know it's just a matter of time
Surprise surprise
What do you think the world owes you
It's not the way it's supposed to go
Well you know It's just a matter of time
Songbird sittig in a tree house with a trumpet to her lips
I'm laying on my back in the tall green grass staring up at the eclipse
Whispers lurking in the alley behind where the children where no shoes
Call girls and corner kids hustling saying what do you got to lose
Open up your eyes
It's happening all around you
If it hasn't found you
Well You know it's just a matter of time
Surprise surprise
What do you think the world owes you
It's not the way it's supposed to go
Well you know It's just a matter of time
And there's nowhere you can run to because the eyes are upon you
Some of the coming up hard and hungry
Stepping up to take your turn
Some of them throwing their money in the fire
Just to watch it burn
Open up your eyes
It's happening all around you
If it hasn't found you
Well You know it's just a matter of time
Surprise surprise
What do you think the world owes you
It's not the way it's supposed to go
Well you know It's just a matter of time

Okay - Alright - Alright

Sydney, whenever you feel unhappy
All you have to do is call me
I can make you laugh
Sydney, I know that you were wrongly accused
I hope you don't lose your sense of humor
Allegations made in the school yard
Soccer moms gossip in the dog park
Their bark is worse then their bite
They're only a couple of crazy cougars
They're bored and spreading their desperate rumors

You know that I was never that cool
But I won't be taken for a fool
If they wanna talk trash
They can talk, talk, talk
But they better come *correct*
And if you ever need me, call me
I'll come runnin' straight to you

Straight from the airport
(I'll come runnin')
Cut through the customs line
(I'll come runnin')
Bust down the courthouse doors
(I'll come runnin')
Sydney, I will testify
(I'll come runnin')
Sydney, I will testify to ya

We were in the basement
Just giving our blood on stage and
Pretending that we were famous
While you were getting framed
I went back to my room in Surrey Hills, yes I did
I didn't know you were in trouble until you came in
Just as skinny as a twig in my kitchen
And told me I was looking at a dead man
I said, "Sydney, you're wrong."

There's a lot of good people living in LA, yes there are and
We won't let nobody take you away, no we won't

You know I was never that cool
But I won't be taken for a fool
If the wanna talk trash they can talk, talk, talk
But they better come *correct*
And if you ever need me you just call me
I'll come runnin' to you

Straight from the airport
(I'll come runnin')
Cut through the customs line
(I'll come runnin')
Bust down the courthouse doors
(I'll come runnin')
Sydney I will testify
(I'll come runnin')
Sydney I will testify
(I'll come runnin')
I will testify
(I'll come running')
I will testify
(I'll come runnin')
to ya, to ya, to ya

Sydney whenever you think you need me
Call me up and I'll come runnin' straight to you

I was never that cool
But I won't be taken for a fool
If the wanna talk trash they can talk, talk, talk
But they better come *correct*
And if you ever need me you just call me
I come runnin' to ya

Straight from the airport
(I'll come runnin')
Cut through the customs line
(I'll come runnin')
Bust down the courthouse doors
(I'll come runnin')
Sydney I will testify
(I'll come runnin')
Sydney I will testify
(I'll come runnin')
I will testify
(I'll come running')
I will testify
(I'll come runnin')
to ya, to ya, to ya
I will testify

The morning after I left my (?)
There was so much left unsaid.
I didn't mean to leave the way I did
with wine and smoke still swirling in my head.

I don't know why you'd want to get mixed up
When I'm hung up on someone else
I don't know how you can give so much
to somebody who keeps so much to themself.

I want to feel free like I did when I was younger
When I was younger I was brave
And I want to love you but I fear I may go under
And I don't think I could be saved.

Now I'm lost in another language
Some words I know but I'm mostly confused
You said that love is another language
that I want to learn with you.

I want to feel free like I did when I was younger.
When I was younger I was brave.
And I want to love you but I fear I may go under
And I don't I could be saved.

And I got home to Santa Monica
Below a blanket of clouds
My pockets filled with pretty Spanish coins
That have no value to me now.

I want to feel free like I did when I was younger
When I was younger I was brave
And I want to love you but I fear I may go under
And I don't think I could be saved
I don't think I could be saved.
