I'm wide awake and so alive
Ringing like a bell
Tell this is paradise
Not some place I fell
Cause I keep falling down

I want to feel the car crash
I want to feel it capsize
I want to feel the bomb drop, the earth stop 'till I'm satisfied

I want to feel the car crash
'cause I'm dieing on the inside
I want to let go and know that I'll be alright, alright

Just push me till I have to fly
I've shed my skins, my scars
Take me deep out past the lights
Where nothing dims these stars
Nothing dims these stars

I want to feel the car crash
I want to feel it capsize
I want to feel the bomb drop, the earth stop 'till I'm satisfied

I want to feel the car crash
'cause I'm dieing on the inside
I want to let go and know that I'll be alright, alright

It's all right
It's all wrong

I'm wide awake and so alive

I want to feel the car crash
I want to feel it capsize
I want to feel the bomb drop, the earth stop 'till I'm satisfied

I want to feel the car crash
'cause I'm dieing on the inside
I want to let go and know that I'll be alright, alright

'cause I'm open wide
So wide
So wide

. . .



I miss the sound of your voice
I miss the rush of your skin
I miss the still of the silence
As you breathe out and I breathe in

If I could walk on water
If i could tell you whats next
Make you believe
Make you forget

Come on get higher
Loosen my lips
Faith and desire
And the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

Come on get higher
Loosen my lips
Faith and desire
And the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I miss the sound of your voice
The loudest thing in my head
And I ache to remember
All the violent, sweet, perfect words that you said

If I could walk on water
If I could tell you whats next
Make you believe
Make you forget

Come on get higher
Loosen my lips
Faith and desire
And the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

Come on get higher
Loosen my lips
Faith and desire
And the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

I feel the pull of your heart
I taste the sparks on your tongue
I see angels and devils and god when you come on
Hold on

Hold on, hold on, hold on....
(sing shaa la la la laa
Ouuu)

Come on get higher
Loosen my lips
Faith and desire
And the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me in love

Come on get higher
Loosen my lips
Faith and desire
And the swing of your hips
Just pull me down hard
And drown me
Drown me in love

It's all wrong
It's all wrong
It's all wrong, its so right

Come on get higher
Come on and get higher
Because everything works love
Because everything works in your heart

. . .



Lets all pack up and move this year
Slips the liars and disappear
Leave memories for auctionnaires
And those just standing still
They'll miss the taste of wanting you
Call out your name like I still do
But they never said a word thats true
And they only hold you down

And this heartbreak world
It doesn't matter
With their tired talk of better days
And dreams they had but can't remember
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake come true

Let's move out of Los Angeles
Just drive until this summer gives
And forget the lies we use to live
'cause we're gone

And this heartbreak world
Of just imagine
With its tired talk of better days
And this heartbreak world
Where nothing matters
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake come true

Ohhhh ohh ohhhh, woaaa oohhhh

And this heartbreak world
Of just imagine
With it's tired talk of better days
And this heartbreak world
Where nothing matters
Come on lets make the dream that's barely half awake come true

And this heartbreak world
With tired talk
And this heartbreak world
Where nothing matters
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake
Come on lets make this dream that's barely half awake come true

. . .



Love,
I'm aching to believe
Give me something real enough
Give me somewhere to fall from

'cause in the dark
I can't find my feet
Built my world on promises
Colorless and cold

I'm short of breath, I'm sure
Gone, let it wash away the best I had
Gone, and when I disappear
Don't expect me back, don't expect me back

Lost, sweetest things get lost
In the static far away
Painted pictures of you
I fold
Don't want to be holy then
Don't want to be sold again
The way I was with you

I'm short of breath, I'm sure
Gone let it wash away the best I had
Gone and when I disappear
Don't expect me back, don't expect me back

I'm short of breath, I'm sure
Gone, let it wash away
The best I had
Gone, and when I disappear
Don't expect me back
Don't expect me back

At its worse the heart is sober
At its worse the heart is cold, cold, cold

I'm short of breath, I'm sure
Gone, let it wash away all the best I had
Gone, and when I disappear
Don't expect me, don't expect me back

Gone, let it wash away
The best I had
Gone, and when I disappear
Don't expect me back
Don't expect me back
Don't expect me back

. . .



So we lie here in the dark
All the wrong things on fire
Sickness and in health
Just to be with you
Just to be with you

In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
Even at my best
I want to let go

And you hold me in your arms
And all that I can feel
Is my future in your hands
With all that I can feel
Is how long ever after is
Its all that I can do
To be with you
Just to be with you

In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
Even at my best
I want to let go

And I lost you
Thought I lost you (I gave you away)
Thought I'd lost you
Jealous of the moon for how it moves the waves

In your wedding dress
To have and to hold
Even at my best
I want to let go

And I want to be somebody else now
And I want to thicken my skin
And I want to wish it all
Just wish it all
Away again
(again)

. . .



Somewhere in between
The beginning and the end
September took the tourist
And settled in for good

You could hear the trains again
Brooklyn girls in scarves
Summer left and no one said a word

We'd open your window
Stay in your bed
All day 'til the street lights came on

So what happened to bulletproof weeks in your arms
What happened to singing cheap radio songs
What happened to thinking the world was flat
What happened to that

Up on 59th street
Right before the rain
Lovers catching taxis going downtown

I'm talking to what's left of you
Watching what I say
Counting all the freckles on your perfect face

You open your window
And I stay on your bed
Just hoping that right words will come

So what happened to bullet proof weeks in your arms
What happened to singing cheap radio songs
What happened to thinking the world was flat
What happened to that

So what happened to bullet proof weeks in your arms
What happened to singing cheap radio songs
What happened to thinking the world was flat
What happened to that
(what happened to that)

Its all gone
Love, it's all wrong

So what happened to bullet proof weeks in your arms
What happened to feeling cheap radio songs
What happened to thinking the world was flat
What happened, what happened to that

She don't lie in bed at night
Staring at the ceiling
She don't wait to begin

She bets on long shots
She wants what they've got
She skates where the ice thins

And on and on
We keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on
To the beat of our noisy hearts

She was her mothers secret
She was daddy's girl
She brought weekend boys home in her curls
She said my love is a fever
Come on touch my skin
They all think I'm easy
Well I'm easy 'cause I let them win

And on and on
We keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on
To the beat of her noisy heart
(of her heart)

And at worst the heart is sober
And at its worst the heart is free
Come say it to my face
I'm holding back again
And I'm already gone, gone

She said pick up the phone
'cause I need to get more alone
Your voice drives me crazy

And on and on
We keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on
To the beat of our her heart

And on and on
We keep going
Crowded like subway cars
On and on
To the beat of our noisy hearts

. . .



I remember hearts that beat, oh yeah, oh yeah
I remember you and me, oh yeah, oh yeah
Tangled in hotel sheets
You wore me out
You wore me out

I remember honey lips and words so true
I remember nonstop earthquake dreaming of you
You're coming on fast like good dreams do
All night long

I still can feel you kiss me love
I still can see your brown skin shining, shining
I still can feel you kiss me love
Come on and drive me wild (me wild)

And you move like water, yeah
And you broke like waves
I've never been deeper, so far gone
Your sister in the next room with the television on

I still can feel you kiss me love
I still can see your brown skin shining, shining
I still can feel you kiss me love
Come on and drive me wild
Come on and drive me wild
Come on and drive me wild

I remember hearts that beat, oh yeah
I remember you and me
Tangled in hotel sheets (for hours)

I still can feel you kiss me love
I still can see your brown skin shining, shining
I still can feel you kiss me love
Come on and drive me wild

I still can feel you kiss me love
I still can see your eyes like diamonds, diamonds
Memories are strong enough
To come on and drive me wild
Come on and drive me wild

. . .



So, we let it go to start again
Knowing now how all our best intensions
Never lit the world on fire
Lights, illuminate the exit signs
And over the wings the skies an open endless sea
Crowding up surrounding me

And all, Detroit waves
Goodnight
Spread out
Beneath
Me now
If I could, if I could change
Believe me
I would, I would for you
(my love)

And when, you're warm enough to share your sheets
Cold enough to make it seem that I was only there long enough to disappear
You know I'll still, say your name to fall asleep
Over and over a cynic saying rosary
A liar living make believe

And all, of Detroit waves
Goodnight
Spread out
Beneath
Me now
If I could, if I could change
Believe me
I would, yes I would
And Detroit waves

And Detroit waves, goodnight
Spread out
Beneath me now
If I could
If I could change
Believe me
I would
Yes I would
And Detroit Waves
Detroit Waves

. . .



Maybe it's because I'm crazy,
Maybe it's because I just can't,
Honestly tell you what I want.
It's never enough to stay still and hold you,
To break loose and run the taste of you,
Wild on my tongue.

Am I no good to you now?
Am I no good to you now?
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
We're spilling over.
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
We're falling apart.

Spent my days with doctors,
And my nights with crooks,
And all of them who sell me for a song.
So I'm here.
Safe Dear.
A fiction in your arms.

Am I no good to you now?
Am I no good to you now?
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
We're spilling over.
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
We're falling apart.

I'm giving up.
Starting over.
I wanna be,
I wanna hold you.
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
We're Falling apart.

Cause all I say,
It doesn't matter anyway.
All I say,
It doesn't matter anyway.
I'm giving up,
So call my bluff.
Cause I just need to be reminded who I am.
I'm falling apart.

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
We're spilling over.
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
We're falling apart.

So get me out
Start me over
For heaven's changed
I should have told you
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh whoa-oh
I'm falling apart.

So wanna be loved?
So wanna be loved?
So come on now
Come on love.

. . .



In the party love,
Some band's playing hallelujah
Hallelujah
In the corner love
All night girls drink wine and try to sing along
I made a mess of things
The stops and in betweens
They weigh me down
You got someone new singing you your songs now

Sooner surrender
Then watch the last wall collapse
And sooner surrender
And our love will count for everything

In my sweetest dreams
It's just you and me
And we break wide
I wake reminded love
How I just gave up
And how you moved on, how you moved on

I'm waiting for something
I've waited for now
For the rolling canyons of love
And i'm tongue tied
And you're coming alive, coming alive

Sooner surrender
Then watch the last wall collapse
And sooner surrender
And our love will count for everything

I'm sorry that you've gone
So sorry that you've gone
I'm sorry that you've gone
Love
I'm sorry that you've gone
So sorry that you've gone away
You're a little bit right
More than a little bit right
With my arms around you

Sooner surrender
Then watch the last wall collapse
And sooner surrender
And our love will count for everything

Sooner surrender
Than watch the last wall collapse I know
Sooner surrender and our love will count for everything
Our love will count for everything
And I miss when you were everything

. . .



Tasted, tasted
Love so sweet,
All that of it is lost on me.
Bought and sold like property
Sugar on my tongue.

Kept falling over,
Kept looking backward.
Went broke believing,
That the simple should be hard.

All we are, we are,
All we are, we are.
Every day is the start of something beautiful.

I wasted, wasted,
Love for you.
Trading out for something new.
Well its hard to change the way you lose,
If you think you never won.

Because all we are, we are,
And all we are, we are.
Every day is the start
Of something beautiful

In the end,
The words won't matter. No.
'cause in the end,
Nothing stays the same.
In the end dreams just scatter
And fall like rain.

'cause all we are, we are,
All we are, we are.
And every day is the start of something beautiful
Something real

Because all we are, we are,
And all we are, we are.
Every day is the start of something beautiful
Beautiful.
