Lovin you has gotten wierd.
You'll see the sun hangin' low down by your window.
And all the rain left in the world can bring you home again.
Oh Carol Lynn

When trustin' you has gotten strange,
You'll close the door when the cold has gotten in.
And all the love left in the world, will keep you warm again
Oh Carol Lynn

When you need a friend, to be there for you.
I won't be one who can help you out.
When you need someone who can let you in,
You can count me out,
Oh Carol Lynn

When your laugh has worn you out,
You'll have the past left for you to think about
And all the money in the world can take you back again,
Oh Carol Lynn
Oh Carol Lynn

Don't wanna know why you like me I don't care
Don't wanna know why I walk by and you stare
Don't wanna know why just to wanna know why
Don't wanna know why just to wanna know why

When I... breathe in, breathe out.
Carry on, carry out.
Try to... drive through your life
Breathe in, breathe out.
Carry on, carry out.
Try to... never say goodbye

Don't wanna know how you're feeling I don't care
Don't wanna know when you'll meet me I'm not there
Don't wanna know why just to wanna know why
Don't wanna know why just to wanna know why

When I... breathe in, breathe out.
Carry on, carry out.
Try to... drive through your life
Breathe in, breathe out.
Carry on, carry out.
Try to... never say goodbye

I wish I knew
How to tell you
How to tell me why

The banks of the river run through my hometown
As a boy, ran dirt roads, and I scraped my knees
Well they paved the roads eventually
With neon signs and car dealerships and diners

The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

Well, I moved away soon as I turned sixteen
Figured I was old enough to go and work a job
Well I floated down main street, pools of car lights
overcame me, wishing I was still back home

The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town

Well, Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight
Seems like you're lucky if it ever change from red to green
I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness
And .50 cent picture frames bought at a five and dime

I ended up a soldier on the weekend
Looking for a vacancy I wasn't able to find
Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket
Shoot it with my cap gun just to make it
Seem like stars

. . .


I get so tired of missing you
I get so tired of wanting to
Compare the things that are easy to do
Like the reasons you lie to me
The reasons I lie to you

And I wish it was some kinda explosive device
That only you could diffuse
Reasons you lie to me
Reasons I lie to you

Wanna live in a beautiful house
Somewhere up in the hills
With some people making fun of us
You refer to us as your two kids
Then it wouldn't be somebody else
That you'd grow accustomed to
Reasons to lie to me
Is a reason to lie to you

I get so tired of missing you
I get so tired of wanting to
Compare the things that are easy to do
Like the reasons you lie to me
Reasons I lie to you

. . .


Seen a lot of things we didn't wanna see
But I'm glad we did
I know a lot of times we fell out of line,
But we fell back in

I think we lost the keys to the kingdom,
Before we'd seen them
Don't be sad
Don't be sad

It took a lot time for us to find the words we'd mean
We spent a lot time before our dimes run out, nickel please

I think we lost the keys to the kingdom,
Before we'd seen them
Don't be sad
Don't be sad
Don't be sad
Don't be sad

'Cause we wont have to live this way forever
It's hard to compromise the things we have

Don't be sad
Don't be sad

Talk to one to have faith
Money can not erase

I think we lost the keys to the kingdom,
Before we'd seen them
Don't be sad
Don't be sad
Don't be sad

Talk to one to have faith
Money can not erase

. . .


Sit around, dream away the place I'm from
Used to feel so much, now I just feel numb
I could go out tonight, but I ain't sure what for
Call a friend or two I don't know anymore

Sit and listen to the rain
Sit and listen to the rain

Gonna ride down to the river where it runs
Gonna watch TV and pray for decent reruns
Sit around and dream away what I've become
Used to feel so much, now I just feel dumb

Sit and listen to the rain
Sit and listen to the rain

I'll never understand this emptiness
I'll never really try and understand, I guess
I'll never understand this emptiness
I'll never really try and understand,
Try and understand, I guess

Sit around, dream away the place I'm from
Used to feel so much, now I just feel dumb
Could go out tonight, but I ain't sure what for
Call a friend or two I don't know anymore

Sit and listen to the rain
Sit and listen to the rain

. . .


Hangin' in the underground
Before a train back out of town
Away from you
All the lights that disappear
In the tunnels way down here
It's quite a view

Sometimes I wish I were deaf
Then I wouldn't hear the words you say
Under your breath
Under your breath

Locked away in your room
On the phone with someone who
She thinks out loud
Thought she found the right to leave
Think of the things you used to need
And I'd run out

Sometimes I wish I were deaf
But I hear the words you say
Under your breath
Under your breath

Anything that you put on me
All the things your head needs, You believe
Read my mind 'Cause I can't say anything
The sick heart potion
Two parts pain
One part true again

Sometimes I wish I were deaf
But I hear the words you say
Under your breath
Under your breath

. . .


Mirror, mirror
Up on the wall in the back of the room
As I walk down the hall in the house where I stayed
Tell me something about what I saw in the face of a man
Who once felt it all but feels nothing today

Knock knock
Who's there
I don't know, I can't say
Ask me tomorrow
I'll tell you the same

Ooh, I'm telling you now
I'm telling you now
Ooh, I'm telling you now
I'm telling you now

Trouble trouble
Down in my hood where it's well understood
They love when you're bad
And they hate when you're good
Tell me something about who we are at the end of our days
When our souls become one but our lives separate

Knock knock
Who's there
I don't know I can't say
Ask me tomorrow
I'll tell you the same

Ooh, I'm telling you now
I'm telling you now (It's bound to make you smile)
Ooh, I'm telling you now
I'm telling you now (It's bound to make you smile)

It's bound to make you smile

. . .


I go walkin' under a paper moon
All the birds are singing
Singing you a pretty tune
All the constellations and all the stars above
They all start to whistling
They start singing along

The world is not a monster
And I'm not scared at all
Floatin' through your heavens
The world is in my arms

Oh rainy day
Don't follow me
Cause I'm her baby doll
She's my cup of tea

I go walkin' under a paper moon
And my eyes are made of crystals
Plastic flowers bloom
All the leaves are changing
And the skies are blue
All these seasons of distraction
Can't take the smile God's given you

The world is but a monster
And I'm not scared at all
I'm floatin' through the heavens
The world is in my arms

Oh rainy day
Don't follow me
Cause I'm her baby doll
She's my cup of tea

Love takes care of love
Hate just burns you out

. . .


I sleep a sleep
Of wounded sheep
That jump the fence
But are too weak

It's what the devil wanted
It's what the devil wanted from me

Put your lover to your chest
Put all your fears to rest
Forever, baby
Ah, ah
Forever, baby

All my time is wasteful now
All my time is wasteful now
All my time is wasteful now
Ah, ah, ah, baby

My idle hands
They are but tools
Apply them well
And you will loose

It's what the devil wanted
What the devil wanted from me

Put your lover to your chest
Put all your fears to rest
Forever, baby
Ah, ah
Forever, baby

All my time is wasteful now
All my time is wasteful now
All my time is wasteful now

Ah, ah, ah, baby

. . .


Trust is a weird thing
Make you crazy
Make you jealous
Make you wish you hadn't said a thing

And I guess I have been mean
But I'm only second guessing you
Cause you won't even let me through

And I want to be happy
And I only want you
If you think that I'm crazy
I'm just crazy 'bout you
Crazy 'bout you

And love is a wonderful thing
Make you wanna
Make you need to
Make you wish you hadn't said a thing

Baby I have been mean
But I'm only second guessing you
Cause you won't even let me through

And I want to be happy
And I only want you
If you think that I'm crazy
I'm just crazy 'bout you
Crazy 'bout you

Baby I want you
Honey I need you
I know you want to
I can feel you

And I want to be happy
And I only want you
If you think that I'm crazy
I'm just crazy 'bout you
Crazy 'bout you

On back down in my hometown
Everybody's feelin' it bad
No new breaks, whatever it takes
Not to have to sway it on a classified ad

Hey there Ma and Pa here I am
Money's running out all the same
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again

Up real late in New York state
Talkin' to my baby at night
She keeps me warm and protects me from harm
Love just keeps on rollin' when the money gets tight

Hey there Ma and Pa where I am
Money's running out all the same
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again

Oh Mrs. Memory just take me on down
Back to the shanties and the cars by the lake
Oh Mrs. Memory just take me on back
Back to my baby and make it okay
Yeah just make it okay

On back down in my hometown
Everybody's feelin' the same
Good money spent on keepin' the rent
Sent in to the man under a week late

Hey there Ma and Pa were I am
Money's running out all the same
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again
I just close my eyes and bring it on home again

. . .


Put the houses in a row
On the streets we used to know
And all the things out in the yard
That can hang there to and fro

And if the money isn't right
Can I be yours tonight?
I've an easy heart

From the windows of your house
Reflects back on yourself
Then it gets you wondering'
If it means anything

And if the money isn't right
Can I be yours tonight?
I've had a pretty hard life
I've had a pretty hard life
For such an easy heart

You move away when you're young
They take away where you're from
And all the things out in the trees
Fall away in to the breeze

And if the money isn't right
Can I be yours tonight?
I've had a pretty hard life
I've had a pretty hard life
For such an easy heart

. . .


The bar lights and the liquor
And the way all the bottles they shine

Well I got five more dollars, drink another
You'll feel fine
You'll feel fine
You'll feel fine

The bar lights and the women
The empty pool hall and you and I

Well I got five more dollars, drink another
You'll feel fine
You'll feel fine
You'll feel fine

Write your name down on a matchbook sleeve
Call me up on Sunday for a drink
Call me up on Sunday tell me anything

The bar lights and the liquor
The way all the bottles they shine

Well I've got five more dollars that wont make you mine
That won't make you mine
That won't make you mine
