Another late night driving around
We're losing sunlight so we head downtown
To Woodward off Charlotte Street
The old place that we used to meet

We were young and we lived it up
But those nights never lasted long enough
Looking back we're so naive
What happened to the days when we shared our dreams

If I could go back now
I wouldn't change a thing
Oh it feels so good
To say

Guess we made it this far
Guess we're doing alright
Looks like we made it out alive
Yeah we made our mistakes
But we followed our hearts
Even though we drift apart
For always, forever
Weathered yellow still frames in my head
For always, forever

The sun rise would beat us to sleep
We didn't wanna go home so slept on the beach
Oh the summer never felt so sweet
I still feel the sand in underneath my feet

Memories of the nights that faded
I don't know how the hell we made it
Looking back we had everything
Those were the days when we shared our dreams

If I could go back now
I wouldn't change a thing
Oh it feels so good
To say

Guess we made it this far
Guess we're doing alright
Looks like we made it out alive
Yeah we made our mistakes
But we followed our hearts
Even though we drift apart
For always, forever
The secondhand kiss of a summer night
For always, forever

Even though some time has passed and we've gone our separate ways
No matter how far apart we'll always have our memories

If I could go back now
I wouldn't change a thing
Oh it feels so good
To say

Oh it feels so good...

Guess we made it this far
Guess we're doing alright
Looks like we made it out alive
Yeah we made our mistakes
But we followed our hearts
Even though we drift apart
For always, forever
Endless copper street lamps on my mind
For always, forever

At Woodward off Charlotte Street


. . .



I got my mind set on you
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about it
Inside out you're beautiful
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about you

It started innocent enough, with a day just like any other
Woke up late and running behind
Americano on the corner, she came without a warning
Knocked my drink all over me
She said
"Sorry I was rushing and I gotta get to work.."
After that I didn't hear a single word she said
I was caught off-guard by her turquoise eyes
I knew right then I had to make her mine

I got my mind set on you
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about it
Inside out you're beautiful
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about you

Turned out my pocket, a crumpled up paper she gave me the day before
A scribbled message and a number
Said "call me later"
Who am I to keep her waiting
So without hesitation I sat down softly contemplating
If I wait to call her will it be too late?
I'm staring at the phone, but I don't know what I'll say
Something about this girl drives me crazy

I got my mind set on you
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about it
Inside out you're beautiful
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about you

It started innocent enough, with a day just like any other
Woke up late but right on time
I got halfway out the door, then her
"Where are you going?"
She grabbed me by the wrist, she pulled me back in to bed
Pressed her lips against my ear and here's what she said, yeah

I got my mind set on you
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about it
Inside out you're beautiful
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about you

I got my mind set on you
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about it
Inside out you're beautiful
There's nothing you can do to change my mind about you

I could have been easier on you
I could have been all you held onto
I know I wasn't fair, I tried my best to care about you
I know I could have been a better man
But I always had to have the upper hand
I'm struggling to see the better side of me
But I can't take all your jabs and taunts
You're pointing out my every fault
And you wonder why I walked away

When you tell me I'm a wreck
You say that I'm a mess
How could you expect anything less?
You latched onto me then cried that I strung you along
I told you when you asked
I knew this wouldn't last
At least I could be honest about that
And now you're telling everyone
How I only did you wrong
I guess you never knew me at all

Remember on my 21st birthday
You took me where we went on our first date
We stayed till closing time, after 4 glasses of wine
You started with a pointless argument
You said that I forgot to compliment
The dress you wore that night
That I've seen a thousand times
But I think we just want different things
I want space, you want a diamond ring
Whatever made you think we were meant to be?

When you tell me I'm a wreck
You say that I'm a mess
How could you expect anything less?
You latched onto me then cried that I strung you along
I told you when you asked
I knew this wouldn't last
At least I could be honest about that
And now you're telling everyone
How I only did you wrong
I guess you never knew me at all

You tell me I'm a wreck
You say that I'm a mess
How could you expect anything less
When you tell me I'm a wreck
You say that I'm a mess
How could you expect anything less?
You latched onto me then cried that I strung you along
I told you when you asked
I knew this wouldn't last
At least I could be honest about that
And now you're telling everyone
How I only did you wrong
Still I see you standing there
Waiting 'round for me to fall
Girl you must be crazy
Still believing you and me belong
I guess you never knew me at all.

Picture perfect, that's what it seems
They've got this whole thing figured out, but not me
We'll leave this place behind, doesn't that feel right?
Picture perfect, it's picture perfect

Through the fire
Through the smoke and the flames
In my reflection in the window
Match in hand and I'm running

Everyone's screaming "You're never gonna get there"
Waking up shaking feels much better
And everyone's saying "Shape up and get a life"
If nothing goes wrong then how will it feel right
Picture perfect doesn't mean much to me

Is it true what they're saying
I gotta settle down in place just like the rest
Living the dream, is this what it feels like?
Picture perfect, it's picture perfect

The days are fading
Like they're one in the same
I point the finger and it shows me
I'm to blame and I'm running

Everyone's screaming "You're never gonna get there"
Waking up shaking feels much better
And everyone's saying "Shape up and get a life"
If nothing goes wrong then how will it feel right
Picture perfect doesn't mean much to me

I'm saving up time to figure this out
But I can't believe I've waited this long
I've seen the truth in another light
This is everything I never wanted to be

Wake up, shape up you're never gonna get there
If nothing goes wrong then how would it feel right
Wake up, shape up you're never gonna get there
It's picture perfect, it's picture perfect

Everyone's screaming "You're never gonna get there"
Waking up shaking feels much better
And everyone's saying "Shape up and get a life"
If nothing goes wrong then how will it feel right
Picture perfect doesn't mean much to me


. . .



Tell me it's over
Tell me we finally made it through
The comfort in silence
Turns to panic once again

We're caught in a landslide
We're dirty, we're broken
Black and blue
The feeling is lost in every signal that we send

How could a love hurt this bad?
How could we lose all that we had?
Why do we follow through?
What keeps us hanging on?
We lived like a storm and let it ride
For all of the times we felt alive
But sometimes love just can't make you stay
When you're happy the hard way

Say what you can't say
Say it's the end, say anything
There's something to find
In all the places that you fear

Lost in a moment
When it's only me and you
There is no other place I'd rather be but here
And those are only times that make the world disappear


How could a love hurt this bad?
How could we lose all that we had?
Why do we follow through?
What keeps us hanging on?
We lived like a storm and let it ride
For all of the times we felt alive
But sometimes love just can't make you stay
When you're happy the hard way

Can't we see it's time to let go?
There's no saving this tomorrow
But it's just so hard to say goodbye

Tell me it's over
Tell me we finally made it through

How could a love hurt this bad?
How could we lose all that we had?
Why do we follow through?
What keeps us hanging on?
We lived like a storm and let it ride
For all of the times we felt alive
But sometimes love just can't make you stay
When you're happy the hard way, yeah
But sometimes love just can't make you stay
When you're happy the hard way
When you're happy the hard way
When you're happy the hard way

What can you do with a girl like that?
Taking everything giving nothing back
Stuck between her legs when she sets her trap
What can you do with a girl like that?

She's knows what she's doing
Standing there with her headphones in
Skinny jeans and a tattoo
Her smile makes me wonder where she's been

I would make a move if I thought there was a chance she'd let me in

What can you do with a girl like that?
Taking everything giving nothing back
Stuck between her legs when she sets her trap
What can you do with a girl like that?

I can't wait for the weekend
Downtown where we all sneak in
Everybody's trying to get some
She takes a drink and then she laughs at them
I can't coast gotta move slow (??)
Watching her as she works the room
Does she see me? Does she know I
Wear my confidence like a costume?

I would make a move if I thought there was a chance she'd let me in

What can you do with a girl like that?
Taking everything giving nothing back
Stuck between her legs when she sets her trap
What can you do with a girl like that?

It's like a curse that's she's put on me
Sweaty hands, shaking knees
Tell her that I want her to move too fast.
That's what you do with a girl like that.

A girl like that.
A girl like that.

I think it could be me she's looking at
And that's a smile I see
So now I know that I can make a move
'cause I think there's a chance she'll let me in.

What can you do with a girl like that?
Taking everything giving nothing back
Stuck between her legs when she sets her trap
What can you do with a girl like that?

It's like a curse that's she's put on me
Sweaty hands, shaking knees
Tell her that I want her to move too fast.
That's what you do with a girl like that.
That's what you do with a girl like that.

A girl like that.
A girl like that.

I watched the sun come up over the Chicago skyline
Drove through a whole night just to make it right
The last thing I remember, you were begging me not to go
You had that look of sadness on your face, that only I would know

I thought a lot about the summers passed
Your hair in your eyes
And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye
Saying goodbye, like it was the last time

I thought I forgot my past
But that all changed today
I know it was wrong of me to try to throw this all away
So if you give it just one more try
I'll give you everything you need
She said
"Just tell me what changed your mind, what brought you back to me?"
And I said

I thought a lot about the summers passed
Your hair in your eyes
And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye
Saying goodbye
We always thought that those days would last
We felt so hard
And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye
Saying goodbye, like it was the last time

Another month that's faded away
Minutes feel like hours, hours like days
When will I see, what can she say?
She said

I thought a lot about the summers passed
Your hair in your eyes
And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye
Saying goodbye
We always thought that those days would last
We felt so hard
And how we spent the whole night saying goodbye
Saying goodbye
Saying goodbye, saying goodbye
Like it was the last time


. . .



It's not enough to be what you wanted
Stuck in love
Fighting your way out
Your string's attached to all my limbs
And I know you're about to let me down, down

Let me tell you
Leave behind you
Never ends, never ends

If you ever learn just to walk away
Then kill me with the words that you didn't say
Finish what you started
Push until you feel I'm about to break
Littering into pieces of what you take
Just finish what you started
So we can do it again

I know it's bound to happen
The road you take leads right back to me, me
Your pill gets hard to swallow
Each time I have to hear you say, say

That you're sorry
That you left me
Once again, once again

If you ever learn just to walk away
Then kill me with the words that you didn't say
Finish what you started
Push until you feel I'm about to break
Littering into pieces of what you take
Just finish what you started
So we can do it again

So pick it up
Right back where you left off
Say the things that you know will turn me on
You speed up ... and then you're gone
But everything you get
You'll get just like I won

If you ever learn just to walk away
Then kill me with the words that you didn't say
Finish what you started
Push until you feel I'm about to break
Littering into pieces of what you take
Just finish what you started
So we can do it again (2x)

You, you got a way of keeping
me on my toes and you got a way
of thinking whatever you do goes
and I really don't mind cause you
keeping me amused and you treated
my love to your god damn crazy moods
and I, I forgive you

I forgive you for the truth I liked you better
when you lied, and I forgive you being you
cause you were better when you faked every smile
and know your knocking on my front door that's what
I've been living for excuse me while I laugh my ass off
I forgive you for your ways now that I finally got away

I, I'm gonna miss watching you while you sleep
cause that was the only time I ever found some peace
I use to believe it was me who was insane, but now I
take it back cause compared to you I'm OK
and I, I forgive you

I forgive you for the truth I liked you better
when you lied, and I forgive you being you
cause you were better when you faked every smile
and know your knocking on my front door that's what
I've been living for excuse me while I laugh my ass off
I forgive you for your ways now that I finally got away

From you, I could throw my cares away
now I know how freedom taste and I
thank you for the pain cause now I
can deal with anything

You, you had a way of keeping me on my toes
I forgive you for the truth I liked you better
when you lied, and I forgive you being you
cause you were better when you faked every smile
and know your knocking on my front door that's what
I've been living for excuse me while I laugh my ass off
and now your knocking on my front door that's what I've
been living for excuse me while I laugh my ass off
and now your knocking on my front door that's what I've
been living for excuse me while I laugh my ass off
I forgive you for your ways now that I finally got away

Everything you own,
In a suitcase by the door.
The words to keep you home,
Are failing.
Everything we take out at anger,
Eventually will break,
Down to answers,
That are ringing in my head

Slow down take a deep breath.
We can't give up tonight

Is it right to sit and watch this die
We're slowly letting go
Like it's better left alone
So erase the intelligence we made
The story left untold
It's better than you know.
It's better than you know.

Of all the nights we've spent
Wrapped in blankets,
The mattress on the floor
Well now i'm sacred
You are my best friend.

Slow down take a deep breath
We can't give up tonight

It's it right to sit and watch this die
We're slowly letting go
Like it's better left alone
So erase the intelligence we've made
The story left untold
It's better than you know.

So much more to say
Suspended in the air between the truth and right to place
Spilling over everything
Before you slip away
Before you slip away from me, slow down.

Is it right to sit and watch this die
We're slowly letting go
Like it's better left alone
So erase the intelligence we've made
The story left untold
It's better than you know

Is it right to sit and watch this die
We're slowly letting go
Like it's better left alone
So erase the intelligence we've made The story left untold
It's better than you know

Swears she's okay
Don't need a witness to her feelings
She watches them escape, the good ones get away
So, cut and paste
And the stitches of her feeling unraveling this way
Makes her feel ashamed

All around her people stare as she slowly falls apart
Picking up pieces of her clumsy little heart
It's hard to know where you're going
When you don't know where to start
But that's just life and that's the hardest part
That's the hardest part
Yeah, that's the hardest part

Spinning off track
Hit the ?
Try to make it pay
But it can never walk away
Staring at its hand like it somehow holds a future
Wondering what went wrong
Wrestling the odds

All around her people stare as she slowly falls apart
Picking up diamonds space-? and hearts
It's hard to know where you're going
When you don't know where to start
But that's just life and that's the hardest part
That's the hardest part
Yeah, that's the hardest part

It's hard to know were we're going
When we don't, we don't know where to start
That's the hardest part
That's the hardest part
Yeah, that's the hardest part
That's the hardest part
Yeah, that's the hardest part

All around her people stare as she slowly falls apart
Picking up pieces of her clumsy little heart
It's hard to know where you're going
When you don't know where to start
But that's just life and that's the hardest part


. . .



You expect, you presume
I expose you the truth
Can't you see that it's not what it seems

I keep my secret safe with me
In a box beside the sea
Faces pale, faces strange
Pages erased

Who-ah, in the shadows I used to run
Who-ah, until I get caught red handed
Who-ah, in the shadows I used to
Who-ah, until I get caught red handed
Get caught red handed

In a crowd, all afraid
Curious to the daze
Steady hand, color-stain
Walk away

Darling, let the monsters breathe
And don't worry what you'll see
Faces cold, face the dark
We all fall apart

Who-ah, in the shadows I used to run
Who-ah, until I get caught red handed
Who-ah, in the shadows I used to
Who-ah, until I get caught red handed
Get caught red handed

Aa-ah...
Woahaa-ah

You expect, you presume
I expose you the truth
Can't you see that it's not what it seems

I keep my secret safe with me
In a box beside the sea
Faces pale, faces strange
Pages erased

Who-ah, in the shadows I used to run
Who-ah, until I get caught red handed
Who-ah, in the shadows I used to
Who-ah, until I get caught red handed
Get caught red handed

In the shadows I used to
Yeah, yeah
Until I get caught red handed
Get caught red handed
