Summer came too early
Springtime came too late
Weather went from freezing
To bleached out summer days

*Holed* up in your bedroom
Hiding like two thieves
Counting up the hours
For the perfect time to leave

Woo, hoo
We're learning the hard way
Woo, hoo
It just don't matter what they say

*Nighttime* through this desert
Driving straight out west
Stop for gas and coffee
Close your eyes for rest

I wonder what you're dreaming
While we're halfway cross this bridge
We've come too far to turn back
We're just too close to quit

Woo, hoo
We're learning the hard way
Woo, hoo
It just don't matter what they say
Woo, hoo
We're learning the hard way
Woo, hoo
Woo, hoo

*Holed* up in your bedroom
Hiding like two thieves
Counting up the hours
For the perfect time to leave

Woo, hoo
We're learning the hard way
Woo, hoo
It just don't matter what they say
Woo, hoo
We're learning the hard way
Woo, hoo
Woo, hoo

Woo, hoo
Woo, hoo
Woo, hoo
Na, na, na, na
Woo, hoo
Na, na, na, na
Who, hoo
Na, na, na, na

Can we take this hell that we've sown.
I think of all this time and how we've grown
Can you wake up sudden feeling peace (pleased?)
and walking all this time while down on your knees

Staring at the skyline
I can smell those Brackish waters
I swear I've had this feeling here before
Come on hard at night I pine for you and no other
I promise I won't hurt you anymore

Poor us, frail as they come
And thinkin' all this time I'm right and I'm not
I cannot help myself and I know it's not your fault
Well I was certain then, but now I don't know

Staring at the skyline
I can smell those Brackish waters
I swear I've had this feeling here before
Come on hard at night I cry for you and all the others
I promise I won't hurt you anymore

Staring at the skyline
I can smell those Brackish waters
I swear I've had this feeling here before
Come on hard at night I cry for you and all the others
I promise I won't hurt them anymore

Staring at the skyline
I can smell those Brackish waters
I swear I've had this feeling here before
Come on hard at night I cry for you and no other
I promise I won't hurt you anymore
Well I promise I won't hurt you anymore

Say you better pack
Better get your things together
Don't know where to go
Until you wind up there
Better grab a coat
You can never tell the weather
Let's hope were gone forever

Someday soon
Gonna sail the big blue ocean
Gonna cause a big commotion

Someday soon
Keep it down below the radar
See beyond the brightest big stars

Mama said your life wouldn't be too easy
That's about the only thing she said at all
Still those words are all you're left to cling to
They're all that seems to ring out true

Someday soon
Gonna sail the big blue ocean
Gonna cause a big commotion

Someday soon
Keep it down below the radar
See beyond the brightest big stars

Someday Soon
Someday Soon

The towns pass by
Like a car crash chase
The nights blur into
Another endless race

Just slow it down
Stop running from your ghosts
Just slow it down
Just slow it down

Say you better pack
Better get your things together
Don't know where to go
Until you wind up there
Until you wind up there

Someday soon
Gonna sail the big blue ocean
Gonna cause a big commotion

Someday soon
Keep it down below the radar
See beyond the brightest big stars

Someday Soon
Someday Soon

Someday Soon
Someday Soon

She's got all the moves
She's got nothing to prove

She's so cold so smooth
Her needle fits the groove

She's everything she forgot to be at twenty-three
She's hot, she's cold, she's just so clinically, cynically

Who's the girl with a heart shaped locket?
Sole survivor of a post-teen scene

Lights me up like a bottle-rocket
Cleopatra meets Sandra Dee
That girl's gonna ruin me

A plaid pleated skirt
And a Carpenters tee shirt
Couture, demure
Not just another small-town flirt

She's everything she forgot to be at twenty-three
She's hot, she's cold, she's just so clinically, cynically

Who's the girl with a heart shaped locket?
Sole survivor of a post-teen scene

Lights me up like a bottle-rocket
Cleopatra meets Sandra Dee
That girl's gonna ruin me

Who's the girl with a heart shaped locket?
Who's the girl with a heart shaped locket?
Who's the girl with a heart shaped locket?
Who's the girl with a heart shaped locket?

Ahh...

Who's the girl with a heart shaped locket?
Sole survivor of a post-teen scene

Lights me up like a bottle-rocket
Cleopatra meets Sandra Dee
Yeah the girl's gonna ruin me

. . .


If you close your eyes
You'll see through my winner disguise
And I'll hold your hand
You're falling all over again

It takes so long
It takes so long

Oh, running over the edge of a curve
Now free-falling till the end of the world
Lost in focus of reality's blur
We run alone

But you know

You've seen through me
Inside another branch of the tree
And I'll never leave
I'll find you everything you need
It takes so long
It takes so long

Oh, running over the edge of a curve
Now free-falling till the end of the world
Lost in focus of reality's blur
We run alone

But you know
You'll see
That you're falling from the edge of the world
But you know
Don't believe
That you're falling from the edge of the world

It takes so long
It takes so long

Oh, running over the edge of a curve
Now free-falling till the end of the world
Lost in focus of reality's blur
We run alone
(repeat)

. . .


I didn't ask for this
I couldn't ask for that
I wouldn't ask for any change in plans

Am I ever right?
When you're such a brat
I feel much better in your hands

Try to take your word
I want to take you down
You never caught me lying

I'm trying not to shout
Wanna work it out
I've been so long denying

I'm a long time gone
Keeping your secrets for too long
Baby you ain't half of what you used to be

In this dim October sky
I've got no more tears left to cry
And I'm finally learning
That you can't be too strong

I'm a long time gone

When you understand
There's no one truth
And we're three-thousand miles apart

Try and act your age
And you're a flaming youth
You seek the end
But never start

If I'm a man
Do I have the strengh
To change what I'm becoming

I've been such a fool
Didn't want to lose
It's been a long time coming

I'm a long time gone
Keeping your secrets for too long
Baby you ain't half of what you used to be

In this dim October sky
I've got no more tears left to cry
And I'm finally learning
That you can't be too strong

I'm a long time gone

I'm a long time gone

I'm a long time gone
Keeping your secrets for too long
Baby you ain't half of what you used to be

In this dim October sky
I've got no more tears left to cry
And I'm finally learning
That you can't be too strong

I'm a long time gone
I'm a long time gone
I'm a long time gone
I'm a long time gone

. . .


It's been such a long time since I've seen you around
I ran into your brother who said you were back in town
It's just so funny to see you in this dive
It must be so different when you're eight miles high

Chorus
Supergirl flying through the atmosphere
Touching down in Paris, soon be in Tangiers
It's a superhero's welcome when you finally come back down
But even when you land you bet your feet don't touch the ground
Supergirl

I heard about your father, and it was sad to hear
I would have made the service, but I thought it might be weird
My family sent some flowers, he was such a kind old man
That time he caught us kissing behind the old bandstand

Chorus

Sometimes late at night when I'm all alone
I watch the airplane lights, make my way back home
I wonder if you're flying somewhere up in the clouds
While the rest of us are stuck here down inside the crowd

Are you ever lonely in some motel room
Looking out the window at an ever-changing world?
Can you please fly back as when you and I were young
If anyone could make it, you're gonna be the one

Chorusx2

Supergirl
Can you hear me calling?
Supergirl
I don't think she can
Supergirl
Can you hear me calling?

. . .


(Dig in,) girl
You're gonna get your (last word)
(Dig in) from your heels
(Now that they're gone)
Baby, don't worry
Show you how it feels
('Cause I kept out of the way)
Now I can hardly wait

Let's play two
Me and you
Let's play two

-- on deck
--
The sun's coming out
(And the) rain delay
Let's play two
Let's play two

Late in October
--
No matter what they say
(I started off big)
(Man, it's hard to be so careless)
I won't let you slip away
Cause I know I started late
And now I can hardly wait

Let's play two
Me and you
Let's play two

-- on deck
--
The sun's coming out
(And the) rain delay
Let's play two
Let's play two
Let's play two
Let's play two

Let's play two
Me and you
Let's play two

-- on deck
--
The sun's coming out
(And the) rain delay
Let's play two
Let's play two
Let's play two
Let's play two

. . .


Time passes like a dream
She suspends the worst of things
Tomorrow let's see
To hell with her
It's not hers to forestall
I've worked out paralysis
Undermining it all

Collapsing light
The night moves close to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
You take the whole world down alone

Life -- it's always just out of reach
Was it there at my parents' house
Maybe just down their street
But you're mine
However lacking it feels
Still I'd trade you away today
For some feeling that's real

Collapsing night
The light breaks close to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
Life is in your hands
Yes, I understand
It's yours to take on alone
If you're gonna leave on your own
Jet black is the payback
This fine sunrise

When you're bored
So sick of your song
When whole worlds just disappear
Swallowed up in a yawn

When you're down
Down how far can I go
Erase the future in a wasted past
Everything ever known

Happiness
Means nothing to me

If you're gonna leave on your own
Life is in your hands
Yes, I understand
It's yours to take on alone
I wish you wouldn't leave on your own
Jet black is the payback
Jet black is the payback
This fine sunrise

. . .


Tangled up and twisted and I don't know what to do
I'm living with Marie Antoinette,
She's living with a fool
Life with her majesty has got one golden rule:
No matter what she will let me forget
That I can't have her cake and eat it too

Pre-chorus
Bring me in and take me down
There's nothing I wouldn't do

Chorus
I'm a fool for the taking
So, baby take me down
I'm a fool for the taking
I'm not that dumb, but I don't mind faking
A fool for the taking
Yeah, a king without a crown
A fool in the making
I can take what you give, 'cause you got me hypnotised

Wrapped in your velvet robe,
On your princess phone
Are you afraid to find out what might
Happen when I get you all alone?

Pre-chorus
Chorus
Repeat
