Would you take a
Straight and narrow, critical look at me?
Would you tell me
Tough-love style? Put judicial weight on me
If you're thinking anything
If you're thinking endlessly
If you're thinking anything
If you're thinking

I feel the breeze, you're feathers of an arrow
Out in my yard, feathers of an arrow
I take my aim, you feel me coming close
I take my aim so you feel me coming close

I feel the breeze, you're feathers of an arrow
Out in my yard, feathers of an arrow
I take my aim, you feel me coming close
I take my aim so you feel me coming close

Would you take a
Calm and tender, terminal kind of care?
Would you touch me?
Cling and wage an intimate fight for me?
If you're thinking anything
If you're thinking endlessly
If you're thinking anything
If you're thinking

I feel the breeze, you're feathers of an arrow
Out in my yard, feathers of an arrow
I take my aim, you feel me coming close
I take my aim so you feel me coming close

I feel the breeze, you're feathers of an arrow
Out in my yard, feathers of an arrow
I take my aim, you feel me coming close
I take my aim so you feel me coming close

I feel the breeze, you're feathers of an arrow
Out in my yard, feathers of an arrow
I take my aim, you feel me coming close
I take my aim so you feel me coming close

(Would you take a) I feel the breeze, you're feathers of an arrow
(Calm and tender) Out in my yard, feathers of an arrow (terminal kind of care)
I take my aim, you feel me coming close (Calm and tender)
I take my aim so you feel me coming close (terminal kind of)

Don’t walk bad idea you’ve been so good I hear
Don’t rush
Don’t move bad idea you’ve been so still I’m here for you
Don’t rush

One way or another
I’ll find my way to cover
I sing to find my other
(sing to find my)
One way my lovely other
They find restless cover
You sing to another
(sing to find your)
Don’t leave bad idea you’ve been so far so long
Don’t rush
Don’t run bad idea you move so fast I need
To rush

One way or another
I’ll find my way to cover
I sing to find my other
(sing to find my)
One way my lovely other
They’ll find restless cover
You sing to another
(sing to find your)
One way or another
I’ll find my way to cover
I love to find my other
(love to find you)
One way my lovely other
They’ll find restless cover
You fill so many others…
One way to erase bad ideas
Well I won’t see you once you arrive
One way to escape bad ideas
Well I won’t cry to you, not that you would mind
(oh, oh, love the other)
One way to erase bad ideas
Well I won’t see you once you arrive
(oh, oh, love the other)
One way to erase bad ideas
Well I won’t cry to you, not that you would mind
One way or another
I’ll find my way to cover
I seem to find my other
(seem to find my)
One way my lovely other
They find restless cover
You sing to another
(sing to find your)
One way or another
I’ll find my way to cover
I’d love to find my other
(love to find you)
One way my lovely other

No, I'm not ready for a big, bad step in that direction
No, I'm not ready for downtown trash, avoid collection
Four blocks, run and hide, don't walk alone at night
Cityscape, city change before they die
Four blocks, I should mention in a song if a wanna
Get along with change, who doesn't wanna change this?

I know you feel it, too
These words get overused
When we get up and over it and over them
Up and over it and over them
I know you feel it, too
It all seems so untrue
When you get up and over it and over them
Uh oh, hell no
Uh oh, hell no

No, we're not ready for a fair distribution, just a terminal solution for...
No, we're not ready for hell, hell no, for hell, hell no
Four days, wide awake, why slide along and say
Girl's afraid, girl will change, just move away
Four days that I mention in a song, move along
Get ahead, get her hand, and bring her with you

I know you feel it, too
These words get overused
When we get up and over it and over them
Up and over it and over them
I know you feel it, too
It all seems so untrue
When you get up and over it and over them
Uh oh, hell no
Uh oh, hell no

Four ways to remove all the bad that we do
From the heart and the soul of the city sad and cold
Four ways to collect what we say and what we save
To discard and discover a brand new way

I know you feel it, too
These words get overused
When we get up and over it and over them
Up and over it and over them
I know you feel it, too
It all seems so untrue
When you get up and over it and over them
Up and over it and over them

I know you feel it, too
These words get overused
When we get up and over it and over them
Up and over it and over them
I know you feel it, too
It all seems so untrue
When you get up and over it and over them
Uh oh, hell no
Uh oh, hell no
Uh oh, hell no
Uh oh, hell no

You're directing me
Your eyes focus like a microscope
Get the cuts you need
Eyes focus like a microscope

Go steady with me,
I know it turns you off when I
I get talking like a teen
I get talking like a teen

You're directing me
You're dressed up
I lose my grip, my focus
Make those eyes at me
I lose my grip, I lose my focus

Go steady with me,
I know it turns you off when I
I get talking like a teen
I get talking like a teen

Go steady with me,
I know it turns you off when I
I get talking like a teen
I get talking like a teen

You're directing me
Eyes focus like a microscope
Get the cuts you need
Eyes focus like a microscope

You're directing me
You dressed up, I lose my grip, my focus
Make those eyes at me
I lose my grip, I lose my focus

(4x)
Go steady with me,
I know it turns you off when I
I get talking like a teen
I get talking like a teen

When you think
Nothing could be further from the truth.
When you're sure
Nothing could be further from the cold hard truth
I kneel to condition all the feelings that I feel
Slow it down
You have a tendency to rush back into your past
Slow it down
You transfer all your weight and disappear
You kneel to condition all the feelings that you feel

I've got a red belt around my mind
My hands tied up around these words
I wish you'd call but I know that you're out tonight
My ears fill with the sound of your kneeling
My ears fill with the sound of descent
My ears fill with the sound of your arching

Slow it down,
You have a tendency to rush back into your past
Slow it down,
You transfer all your weight and disappear

Kneel to condition all the feelings that you feel
Kneel to condition all the feelings that you feel
Kneel to condition all the feelings that you feel
Kneel to condition all the feelings that you feel

. . .


Begging like, you might
Take order in your own hands.
I stare, seems like I don't care
Drop a chance in your hands, then

I know the bad's gotta fix itself
Correct over time
And I know
'Cuz I've got the cure
I've got a cure for your crimes

All I dreamed of
All that seemed like luck
Seems silly to you now
All I said to you
All I did for you
Seems so silly to me now

Screaming like
No one might
Call the cops and arrest you this time
Standing back
Against my building's back door
You're hoping for a ride

I know the world's been mean to you
I've got a cure, hold tight
I know the world's not fair to you
I've got a cure for its crimes

All I dreamed of
All that seemed like luck
Seems silly to you now
All I said to you
All I did for you
Seems so silly to me now

Oh, oh when you say it
So, so slowly to me
Oh, oh well I keep going
Oh, no I run while knowing
No, no I know you need it
So, so I need it too and
Oh, oh I must keep going
So, so you must too, and

Oh, oh when you say it
So, so slowly to me
Oh, oh well I keep going
Oh, no I run while knowing
No, no I know you need it
So, so I need it too
And oh, oh I must keep going
So you
Must too

Oh oh

I've got a cure
I've got the cure for you
I've got a cure

I've got the cure

(2x)
All I dreamed of
All that seemed like luck
Seems silly to you now
All I said to you
All I did for you
Seems so silly to me now

(2x)
I've got a cure
I've got the cure for you

Oh, Oh...

Don't bend
Don't blink
Don't beg
Don't scream
Don't whine
Don't fight
Don't tell me, don't tell me, don't tell me

Don't feel
Don't tear
Don't kiss
Don't care
Don't touch
Don't want me, don't want me, don't want me

Something's so sick about this
My misery is so addictive
I'm halfway there watching Northshore from the floor singing to you over my shoulder

Don't run
Don't hide
Don't hurt
Don't lie
Don't breathe
Don't try
Don't find me, don't find me, don't find me

Don't cringe
Don't clench
Don't look
Don't flinch
Don't know
Don't go
Don't leave me, don't leave me, don't leave me

Something's so sick about this
My misery is so addictive
I'm halfway there watching Northshore from the floor singing to you over my shoulder

Don't sing
Don't talk
Don't yell
Don't laugh
Don't think
Don't speak
Don't save me, don't save me, don't save me

Don't stay
Don't plan
Don't heal
Don't mend
Don't take
Don't send
Don't love me, don't love me, don't love me

Something's so sick about this
My misery is so addictive
I'm halfway there watching Northshore from the floor singing to you over my shoulder (x4)

I've got grounds for divorce
It's in my blood this divorce
I separate everybody
I need distance from your body

Oh, I deserve this anguish on my house

So get away
You cannot follow me
I get away
You cannot follow me

So get away
You cannot follow me
So get away
You cannot follow me

I get away

I've got grounds for recourse
Your lungs fill with discourse
You separate from my body
You need consistence from somebody

Oh, I deserve this anguish on my house

So get away
You cannot follow me
I get away
You cannot follow me

So get away
You cannot follow me
I get away
You cannot follow me

So get away
You cannot follow me
I get away
You cannot follow me

So get away

. . .


Sensitive
It's true
Alligator tears
Cried over you
Over you, over you
Over you, over you

Run around on me
Sooner die without
Run around on me
Die without

Relentless
Yes, it's true
My motor mouth
Runs over you
Over you, over you
Over you, over you

Run around on me
Sooner die without
Run around on me
Die without

Over you, over you
Over you, over you
Over you, over you
Over you, over you

Run around on me
Sooner die without
Run around on me
Die without

No hissy fits
Mind my manners
Won't make a scene

Oh, Over you
Over you, over you
Over you
Over you, over you

Run around on me
Sooner die without
Run around on me
Die without

Rattled yes, it's true
Alligator tears
Spilled over you

(2x)
Run around on me
Sooner die without
Run around on me
Die without

Over you, over you
Over you
Over you, over you
Over you, over you
Over you
Over you, over you
Over you
Over you, over you
Over you, over you

You have to become
What you fancy

Paperback head
You get carried away
Stitch up your spine
Keep the suitors away
You must draw your own aid
Must sift your affairs
Must frame up
A material girl

Wild fires
You must remit

Can't stand the smoke
Pull the sheets down low
Rope up your mind
Keep the suitors in line
Must draw your own aid
Must sift your affairs
Must frame up
A material girl

A material girl

I gasp like sugar and spice
I gasp like sugar and spice

Who better than you? Better than you
Who better than you? Better than you
Who better than you? Better than you
Who better than you?

A paperback head
You get carried away
Stitch up your spine
Keep the suitors away
Can't stand the smoke
Pull the sheets down low
Rope up your mind
Keep the suitors in line
You must draw your own aid
Must sift your affairs
Must frame up
A material girl

A material girl, a material girl
A material girl, a material girl
A material girl, a material girl
A material girl

. . .


When you wake, what is it that you think of most?
When your bed is empty, do you really sleep alone?
If I imagine you, body next to another

All around me new love and it makes me sad
All around me feeling sure that you'll be bad
If I imagine you, body next to another

Stop crying to the ocean
Stop crying over me
Stop worrying over nothing
Stop worrying over me

So it's been so long since you said,
"Well I know what I want, what I want is right here with you."

On the drive back here, I was worried over nothing
On the drive back there, tears spilling over something
When I imagine you, body next to another

In the door, and you're there, and you're sorry for the fright
In the door, did I hear saying you don't wanna fight?
When I imagine you, body next to another

Stop crying to the ocean
Stop crying over me
Stop worrying over nothing
Stop worrying over me

So it's been so long since you said,
"Well I know what I want, what I want is right here with you."
It's been so long since you said,
"Well I know what I want, what I want is right here with you."

In a flash, back to you just brought attention to the mess
In a flash, you're on top, begging me to understand
If I imagine you, body next to another

You drop in for a minute
I'm sorry that I didn't drop in sooner just to see you
And see what you've been doing
If I imagine you, body next to another

So it's been so long since you said,
"Well I know what I want, what I want is right here with you."
It's been so long since you said,
"Well I know what I want, what I want is right here with you."
It's been so long since you said,
"Well I know what I want, what I want is right here with you."
It's been so long since you said,
"Well I know what I want, what I want is right here with you."

You
In a simple gray coat
In a simple white room

Now you know, you know it now, and so
Now you know, you know it now

You
Hate the tender hearted
Torch song
You
Catch a flame to my sentiment
My sentimental tune

Now you know, you know it now, and so
Now you know, you know it now

Hard hearted, don't worry
I'm ready for a fight
Unnerved, the nerve
You're nervous
Nervous that I'm right

Hard hearted, don't worry
I'm ready for a fight
Unnerved, the nerve
You're nervous
Nervous that I'm right

Now
With your cause and affection
On my mind
I won't yield, throw caution
Into the blaze

Now you know, you know it now, and so
Now you know, you know it now

Watch
With a bit of friction
I'll be under your clothes
With a bit of focus
I'll be under your skin

Now you know, you know it now, and so
Now you know, you know it now

Hard hearted, don't worry
I'm ready for a fight
Unnerved, the nerve
You're nervous
Nervous that I'm right

Hard hearted, don't worry
I'm ready for a fight
Unnerved, the nerve
You're nervous
You're nervous that I'm right

Now you know, you know it now, and so
Now you know, you know it now

Now you know, you know it now, and so
Now you know, you know it now

They yell, "Speak up!"
I fill these pages like I fill those spaces with my lies
They yell, "Step down!"
A crowd's not worth this, and love's not worthless
You've gotta step up, stranger

Might paint something I might wanna hang here someday
Might write something I might wanna say to you someday
Might do something I'd be proud of someday
Mark my words, I might be something someday

They yell, "Right on!"
A class-act president
You are my boss, I am confident in your eyes
They yell, "Move up!"
Don't stand back here and wait like an animal at a farmer's gate
Am I food or am I free?
So speak up!
This is your last chance, my friend
Roll the windows down and take me in
Reach out!
Say what you're really about
Are you coming here or not?
Are you coming out?

Might paint something I might wanna hang here someday
Might write something I might wanna say to you someday
Might do something I'd be proud of someday
Mark my words, I might be something someday

Might paint something I might wanna hang here someday
Might write something I might wanna say to you someday
Might do something I'd be proud of someday
Mark my words, I might be something someday

I don't wanna know that you don't want me
I don't wanna know what you do without me
I don't wanna know what I'll be without you
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know that you don't want me
I don't wanna know what you do without me
I don't wanna know what I'll be without you
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know

Might paint something I might wanna hang here someday
Might write something I might wanna say to you someday
Might do something I'll be proud of someday
Mark my words, I might be something someday

Might paint something I might wanna hang here someday
Might write something I might wanna say to you someday
Might do something I'd be proud of someday
Mark my words, I might be something someday

(Simultaneously)
I don't wanna know that you don't want me / Might paint something I might wanna hang here someday
I don't wanna know what you do without me / Might write something I might wanna say to you someday
I don't wanna know what I'll be without you / Might do something I'd be proud of someday
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know / Mark my words, I might be something someday

I don't wanna know that you don't want me / Might paint something I might wanna hang here someday
I don't wanna know what you do without me / Might write something I might wanna say to you someday
I don't wanna know what I'll be without you / Might do something I'd be proud of someday
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know / Mark my words, I might be something someday

Oh, my wrists are weak
But if I could lift your body
Out of a crash, of the waves
Out of bed, or onto me
Working too hard gets me
Acting like a letter
So before you tell me
You're not worth the worry, hurry

Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Make me go without a word
Get so crazy when you shut up
Wake up in a panic
Room is dark, you know this body
Could be this way with
Almost just anybody
So put me next to the window
Put me next to the light

Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Hurry, hurry
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Hurry, hurry
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry

Oh, my ego's weak, so
Thought if I could lift your body
And wake up out of air
The night's too short, you're onto me
Why am I always acting
Timid and too careful
Please before I tell you
I'm not worth the worry, hurry

Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Oh, my wrists are weak
I carry weight like a shadow
So put me next to the window, put me next to the light

Hurry, hurry, hurry
I like to hurry when I'm wanting you
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Hurry, hurry
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry, hurry

Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Hurry, hurry
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry, hurry
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry
Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry
Don't judge a book by the size of its wrists
Are you undecided
Hurry, hurry
Hurry, hurry, hurry

What would I do differently
With two kids on my hip

Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow
Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow

I'm the age you were then
What goes through your mind
Find some success
And reduce the worry
On your babies' minds

Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow
Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow

Lay, lay back and light up
Lay, lay back and light up
Without any guilt
Lay, lay back and light up
Lay, lay back and light up
Without any guilt

Credit my weak heart and strong mind
To that bad circumstance
Oh that terrible time
Would I've searched for myself
What would I find

Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow
Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow

We're eggshells and not easy to hold
We uncurl and unwind when we sleep side by side

Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow
Let them say what they will
'Cause they will anyhow

Lay, lay back and light up
Lay, lay back and light up
Without any guilt
Lay, lay back and light up
Lay, lay back and light up
Without any guilt
Lay, lay back and light up
Lay, lay back and light up

. . .


It was midnight
Your hand was in mine
All eyes were on our table
It was afternoon before you
Were out of bed and I was able
To concentrate
To figure out a plan to keep you here
To evaluate
To make a list of lists to convince you

Don't run away
It only fuels the flames
Don't pull away
It only makes me want to stay

It was Monday
You were packing on my floor
My eyes were charting every move you made
It was early evening before you
Were home and I was sure you were safe

I can't concentrate
I tried so hard to plan to keep you here
I can't evaluate
I threw away the lists to convince you

Don't run away
It only fuels the flames
Don't pull away
It only makes me want to stay

Don't run away
It only fuels the flames
Don't pull away
It only makes me want to stay

Gone, gone, gone, gone

Don't run away
It only fuels the flames
Don't pull away
It only makes me want to stay

Don't run away
It only fuels the flames
Don't pull away
It only makes me want to stay
