Please Welcome, ah my favourite band The Counting Crows
Hey Were gonna start off with just David on
Step out the front door like a ghost Into the fog where no one notices The contrast of white on white
And in between the moon and you Angels get a better view Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right
I walk in the air between the rain, Through myself and back again Where? I don't know
Maria says she's dying Through the door, I hear her crying Why? I don't know
Round here we always stand up straight Round here something radiates
Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus She parks her car outside of my house and Takes all her clothes off, Says she's close to understanding Jesus She knows she's more than just a little you know - misunderstood She has trouble acting normal, well I have trouble acting normal but
Round here we're carving out our names Round here we all look the same Round here we talk just like lions But we sacrifice just like lambs Round here - look - she's slipping though my hands
Oh, Sleeping children better run like the wind Out of this lightning dream I said Mama's little baby better get herself in Out of the lightning
She says, "It's only in my head." She says, "Shhh...I know, I know it's only in my head."
But the girl on the car in the parking lot Says: "Man, you should try to take a shot Can't you see my walls are crumbling?"
Then she looks up at the building She says, Im thinking of jumping She says, Im sick and tired of life Well everybodys tired of something!
Round here she's always on my mind Round here, Hey man, I got a lot of time I said round here we're never sent to bed early Man, nobody makes us wait Round here we stay up very very very very late
I... I can't see nothing, nothing Round here Would you catch me if I was falling Would you kiss me if I was leaving Would you hold me cause Im lonely Without you
I said I'm under the gun Round here I said Im lonely lonely lonely Without you
