She said, 'You got nothing to prove,
but you've got something to lose,
and that something is me.
You got no reason to stay,
say you been running away.
But you run like a thief.'

She wants you, she needs you
A soundtrack to bleed to
But can you shut up long enough to fall in love?

She said, 'Come on, just let me breathe,
I'm tangling now that you leave, get me back to myself.
Tried a thousand and one times,
but the lines are undone,
why not believe what you felt?'

She wants you, she needs you
A hurricane to live through
But can you shut up long enough to fall in love?

And didn't you hear?
There's a time
And a place that I won't be going
Time won't erase all you fear
Well, you ought to know by now

There is no reason to lie
No reason to lie
Yeah, you ought to know by now

She wants you, she needs you
The soundtrack to bleed to
But can you shut up long enough to fall in love?

Hey, what's your number Chicago?
What time is it in Japan?
I've got something to offer
That's never been in demand

Yeah, I've got something to say to you that I know you'd rather ignore
I am the bastard of midnight
I might just sleep outside this door

Trouble keeps the bar lights on for the heartache
She said, "Sunset Boulevard'll take me home"
But I just wanna scream

Oh, I, oooh, I miss you
I, oooh, I miss you
I, ooh, I miss you tonight

Hey, what's your problem St. Peter?
I've got my churches ingrained
Am I the groom of disaster?
I've come here to entertain

But I've got nothing to sing to you that you haven't heard before
So I will sing you a million while you just walk out that door

Trouble keeps the bar lights on for the heartache
She said, "Sunset Boulevard'll take me home"
But I just wanna scream

Oh, I, oooh, I miss you
I, oooh, I miss you
I, ooh, I miss you tonight

Tell me once, tell me twice, just what I wanna hear
Come around, hold me close, we're getting outta here
Tell me once, tell me twice, tell me you're here

Oh, I, oooh, I miss you
I, oooh, I miss you

Oh, I, oooh, I miss you
I, oooh, I miss you
I, ooh, I miss you
Oh, I, oooh, I miss you
I, oooh, I miss you
I, ooh, I miss you

. . .


Hey little stick around girl
I wanna know why
Why do you turn me outside?
Can't you just turn around?
My money is on the heartbreak
My hands are on the wheel
Hey little kiss a while girl
Didn't I see you cry?

Hey honey Saturday high
Even though it's Monday night
I see you runnin' 'way girl
Runnin' since your 16
My eyes are on the last page
Money's come and gone
Hey honey what I want is
Whatever you gonna give
Whatever you gonna give
To me

I don't wanna be a maybe
Baby let me drive you crazy
Wanna be your dandelion
Don't you go and leave me stranded
I'm empty on my second hand and
So if you give me little time
I wanna be your dandelion

Hey little lonely smile girl
Singin' behind your eyes
Destination's never known but I'm always there on time
Money's on the heartbreak
My hands are on the wheel
Hey honey what I want is
Whatever you gonna give
Whatever you gonna give
To me

I don't wanna be a maybe
Baby let me drive you crazy
Wanna be your dandelion
Don't you go and leave me stranded
I'm empty on my second hand and
So if you give me little time
I wanna be your dandelion

I don't wanna be a maybe
Baby let me drive you crazy
Wanna be your dandelion
Don't you go and leave me stranded
I'm empty on my second hand and
So if you give me little time
I wanna be your dandelion

. . .


Everybody wants to be on your mind
Cause you're one of a kind
Aren't you baby?
Everybody wants to be by your side
Come along for the ride
If you want to baby

Don't tell me like it is
Just how it could be
Like I want
Not how it would be
Don't tell me Like it is
Like it is
Like it is
Like it is

December never waits for your arms to hold
All the things grown cold
In the mirror baby
So come and lead me on
I'm your face to hold
Or replace I'm sold
If you want me baby

Don't tell me like it is
Just how it could be
Like I want
Not how it would be
Don't tell me Like it is
Like it is baby
Like it is
Like it is


Don't tell me like it is
Just how it could be
Like I want
Not how it would be
Don't tell me Like it is
Like it is baby
Like it is
Like it is

Damn the long distance phone call making a bastard of me
I don't want to relive the lost child story

Cameron is pushing her Jesus
Maybe she needs to believe 'cause nobody sticks around
Everybody leaves

55 pictures on the wall
I still don't have the guts to call
Everyone moved away and we grew up
Slamming the big door shut

55 pictures in your room
A 100 chances that you blew
If only these pictures could say, "I miss you"

Jersey to Memphis the long way
Gripping the wheel 'til it bleeds
Searching the mind for the family tree

Cameron is taking the blindfold back to the ignorant sea
Maybe your Jesus could come save me

55 pictures on the wall
I still don't have the guts to call
Everyone moved away and we grew up
Slamming the big door shut

55 pictures in your room
A 100 chances that you blew
If only these pictures could say, "I miss you"

55 pictures on the wall
I still don't have the guts to call
Everyone moved away and we grew up
Slamming the big door shut

55 pictures in your room
A 100 chances that you blew
If only these pictures could say, "I"
If only these pictures could say, "I"
If only these pictures could say, "I love you"

You crawl to me and I crawl to you
And in the middle we meet
You drink from me and I swallow you 'cause in my heart the rent is cheap

I've been staying up way too late
You wanna love me girl
Don't hesitate
I've been staying up and I've been waking up

Pray this world will see me now as you do
I've never looked so good

I crawl through this city and I'm looking for you
I chase the darkened streets
I call your name darling 'cause it's all I can do
I sing to you my sweet

I've been staying up way too late
You wanna love me girl
Don't hesitate
I've been staying up and I've been waking up

Pray this world will see me now as you do
I've never looked so good

And if there's a reason to run will you run right back to me
And if there's nowhere to go will you come
Come to me
Come to me

I've been staying up way too late
You wanna love me girl
Don't hesitate
I've been staying up and I've been waking up
Mmm

I pray this world will see me now as you do
And if it was mine I'd give it all to you

I pray this world will see me now as you do
I've never looked so good

Here's a little more time on the dark bitter doubt
Here's a past time cheater whose just moving out
Here's a new direction we still haven't found
There's a great myth trading your faith for a paper crown

Down low
It won't show
What you lose
Ready to go?

Somewhere between nothing and something is everything
Somewhere between darkness and wonder is every dream
Somewhere between breaking and broke there's a song to sing
Somewhere between nothing and something is everything

Here's the good advice that you preach without a sound
Here's a telephone call that was cheap and wore you down
Here's a losing streak and a fall to fill your doubt
It's the same direction but still running out

Down low
It won't show
Was what you lost
Ready to go?

Somewhere between nothing and something is everything
Somewhere between darkness and wonder is every dream
Somewhere between breaking and broke there's a song to sing
Somewhere between nothing and something is everything

Somewhere between nothing and something is everything
Somewhere between nothing and something is everything

Trying to catch christmas eve with a 737
Via st. louis with on a threadbare heart
I'm trying hard to believe in ghosts and heaven
And wheels that turn with a broken part

Stealing kisses over the phone
Making wishes ona bottle of cotes du rhone
Some of these days are longer than
The lonely distance that's between them

Lets be closer than we are
To jupiter or spain
There are 2 seats at the bar
For mr and mrs my last name
We are simpler than the stars
Then are eyes can not contain
Lets be closer than we are

Trying to build galaxies
Out of winks and shivers
That you give me when you call my name
Trying to write symphonies
With a hand that quivers
In the storm of your elusive rain

Leaving lovers on their own
Crawling through burning cities to get back home
Some of these days are longer than
The lonely distance that's between them

Lets be closer than we are
To jupiter or spain
There are 2 seats at the bar
For mr and mrs my last name
We are simpler than the stars
Then are eyes can not contain
Lets be closer than we are

Lets be all that will remain

Some of these days are longer than
The lonely distance that's between them
Lets be closer than we are
To jupiter or spain
There are 2 seats at the bar
For mr and mrs my last name
We are simpler than the stars
Then are eyes can not contain
Lets be closer than we are

Lets be all that will remain
Lets be closer than we are

You're soulful honey
Razor blade sweet
Your ghost is a trip in red velvet cake

I've got nickels and dimes if you've got free time
You're a careless sweetheart
Kissing for keeps

Pretty page
Bottomless moonshine girl
She came to the funeral in sweet baby pearls

I'm back from the dead
I heard what you said
You're so high strung baby
You could wind up the world

It's all right mom
I'm coming home tonight
Yeah
Yeah
It's all right mom
Jesus could be right
Yeah
Yeah
It's alright mom
The war ain't mine to fight
Yeah
Yeah
I'm just a fool now baby
I've got a bit more than a doubt

You're ghastly darling
Cookies and cream
You're speaking in tongues but I know what you mean

Do I still have to wait for true love and hate
You're a ballbreaker baby
Such a cast iron queen

It's all right mom
I'm coming home tonight
Yeah
Yeah
It's all right mom
Jesus could be right
Yeah
Yeah
It's alright mom
The war ain't mine to fight
Yeah
Yeah
I'm just a fool now baby
I've got a bit more than a doubt

Multitude baby
Of guesses and schemes
You cut me in 2 but I come back in 3s

With all the devils insane that the heavens contain
I picked a good one to love me
Sweet
So fucking insane

It's all right mom
I'm coming home tonight
Yeah
Yeah
It's all right mom
Jesus could be right
Yeah
Yeah
It's alright mom
The war ain't mine to fight
Yeah
Yeah
I'm just a fool now baby
I've got a bit more than a doubt
I've got a bit more than a doubt

Mmm
Mmm
Mmm
Mmm

You trade in time
For the victory smile
I'm spinning high
Like the tin moon on fire
Yeah it's been a long ride
But I'm still looking for mine
Yeah it's been a long time

I spelled my name
On your up and down beat
I called for rain
But they gave us Eight Street
Yeah you're on the TV
And paid for faking the bleed
Yeah it's been a long time

Say your time keeps a little fast
Say your heart beats blue and black
Say your love grows with poison grass
Find More lyrics at www.sweetslyrics.com
Say you won't leave

I'm making frames
For the vision you see
I took your place
Where the cannonball sleeps
Yeah it couldn't be free
But I would've given you cheap
Yeah it's been a long time

Say your time keeps a little fast
Say your heart beats blue and black
Say your love grows with poison grass
Say you won't leave

Say your time keeps a little fast
Say your heart beats blue and black
Say your love grows with poison grass
Say you won't leave

. . .


If my life was a distance
What mile would you claim?
And if my life was a story
How I wish you would explain
All this

If you leave me I will go down with the ship
Your love breaks me right in two
Still that part of you
That just won't quit

If your voice was a siren
With nothing left to sing
Oh, down below broken skylines
I'm still here listening
To this

If you leave me I will go down with the ship
Your love breaks me right in two
Still that part of you
That just won't quit

I've been here under
For the longest time
I'm your restless child
Over state lines
So don't you let me down
For once in your life
We're a-growin' now
Faster than our skin
Lookin' for our fathers
So where have you been?
Don't you let us down
For once in your life
For once in your life

If you leave me I will go down with the ship
Your love breaks me right in two
Still that part of you

If you leave me I will go down with the ship
Your love breaks me right in two
Still that part of you
That just won't quit

. . .


Mama's gonna buy you a big black coffin
She doesn't like the one uncle Sam's been offering her
Yeah
You're going out in style

Mama's gonna raise all the sons and daughters
Fathers fell by men and men in squalor
Yeah
She'll miss you for a while

We don't feel the shame
And we don't take the blame
Men on TV tell me there's no other way
We've got to take mama's baby away

Mama's gonna run out of means and wages
She'll have to beg for sympathy from desolate cages
Yeah
She's dragging skin and bones

Mama's gonna turn to the politicians
For answers turned to smoke and smoke by apparitions
Yeah
She's bound to beg and roam

We don't feel the shame
And we don't take the blame
Men on TV tell me there's no other way
We've got to take mama's baby away

We don't feel the shame
And we don't take the blame
Men on TV tell me there's no other way
We've got to take mama's baby away
Gotta take mama's baby away
