Someone like yourself

I know I' ve been waiting for someone to save me from thoughts that go bump in my head...
But lately I' m finding a general lull in the number of saviours whose hearts aren' t dead...
Now there' s a lot of compassion expressed in conversation but style seems to warrant the trade...
I know it's not fashion that causes this reaction but somebody' s got to take the blame...
Oh... Oh... Oh... Someone like yourself...

Oh, I' m sure I will grow to be a good man but for now I am still just a boy...
And I still believe in the soul of purest rock and roll but I can' t find that romance their still singing about...
Oh... Oh... Maybe it's inside... Someone like yourself...

Oh, I thought for a moment due to someone' s interventions that you might like to sit down...
Oh, and play the good role of the beautiful lady who makes everyday worth my while...
But as it turns out (I was just another passer-by whose soul you thought looked nice to squeeze...
Oh, and now here I am waiting around for someone to pick me back up off the ground...

Here I am... Waiting around... For someone to save me... Someone like yourself...
Here I am... Waiting around... For someone to save me... Someone like yourself...

All is fair

You took another cigarette... And pressed it against your lips...
The tiny flame lit the end on the third try... You inhaled deeply...
And made the feeling last... You laid your cigarette down...
With your gentle lipstick marks still on it...

But you can cry all night... And it might make everything right...
Because I was the one who did the breaking...
But you took my heart with you anyway...
Oh cause I was the one who did the breaking...
But you didn' t play by the rules...

You can sing me a song... All weak kneed with melody...
But as long as I' ll never know... The lies you told never helped me...
Just remember... You were the one who screwed it up...
You were the one who screwed it up... Not me...

A wise man once told me that all is fair in love and war...
But before this war started... I wasn' t kept up to date on the score...
All is fair... So don' t cry over me...
I can' t take much more of this... Leave the field... Let the war be...

All is fair... All is fair... All is fair... All is fair...

Part ii

Wouldn' t you like to know... What makes me feel so...
Wouldn' t you like to know... What makes me feel so...
High about the world around me... What makes me feel so...
Like I' ve got all the answers... And I always know what' s coming next...

Thousands of people all around the world crying out from loneliness tonight...
They wouldn' t believe the answers... At least not the ones that I' d give...
They wouldn' t believe me if I tried to tell them the truth...

Wouldn' t they like to know... What makes us so small...
Precious and beautiful... And everything we all need to hear...
Wouldn' t they like to know... That this is the way it goes...
There is no secret... No second chance... No one will get out alive...

Millions of people all around the world are dying for something tonight...
If we could all just stop and open our eyes... We wouldn' t have to cry...
We don' t have to cry... We don' t have to cry...

Billions of people all around the world are feeling so small tonight
Feeling so small and afraid... Trying not to give up the fight...

Wouldn' t you like to know... Wouldn' t you like to know...
Wouldn' t you like to know... Love... Love... Love...
Wouldn' t you like to know what it feels like...
To feel love... Love...

When the sunlight hits my drunk

When the sunlight hits my drunk... I' ll think the world is crazy for sleeping...
When the sunlight hits my drunk... The lovers will hold an extra hour before they go to work...
When the sunlight hits my drunk... Will you dream of me, or will you brush it off for deeper sleep...
When the sunlight hits my drunk... I' ll think that maybe the phone is close enough to reach....

But the reaching won' t be easy... So like with you I' ll give up...
I think that maybe... I' m going crazy... Without you...

When the sunlight hits my drunk... The doves will point and laugh at me...
When the sunlight hits my drunk... The alarm clock radio will send out love songs today.... And I' ll have nothing near me to throw...
When the sunlight hits my drunk... I will feel you deep inside and hear you ringing in my chest...
When the sunlight hits my drunk... And my carpeted grave spins around the trinket you wear round your neck... Like the sun...
I think that maybe... I' m going crazy... Without you...

Its been forty-five days since I was the champagne in your mouth...
Today the calendar reads it' s the happy fourteenth in big bright red letters...
I force a laugh through the tears at this...
I hear the kids across the street... Fight over who gets the front seat....
While the suit scrapes the ice off the car...

It seems so childish.... Its all so foolish....
It seems so childish.... Its all so foolish....

When the sunlight hits my drunk... If it was so sweet before than why can' t we do it again...?
When the sunlight hits my drunk... This decision will be forever yours...
I think you' re crazy.... I think I' m crazy... I think you' re crazy...
For leaving me on this floor....
I think you' re crazy... I think I' m crazy... I think you' re crazy...
For leaving me on this floor...

Fearless

You can' t ignore me anymore... Walk down the hall through the front door...
Step outside and take a breath of fresh air... Look around and know this day could be my last...
Do you still think of me... As someone who' s afraid?

I' ve been going down... I' ve thought this moment would be my last...
But now it's all been changed... Changed by the face of death...

You don' t own me anymore... Walk across the street where traffic wars...
Climb to the rooftop to end my fear...
Now I' ve opened up my eyes.... Now every day is like my last...

I' ll play your game... You can change the rules if you like...
Cause now I know all your secrets.... All your secrets...
And now I' m fearless.... Fearless... Fearless...

Chances are

You always ask me... You always ask me... What is the world coming to?
You always ask me... You always ask me... Where will our love be?
I always answer... I always answer...

There' s not enough love... So let' s save the world from drowning...
You' ve got enough (love) on you... To start the world a-dancing...
Let' s watch the stars collide... And then we' ll go romancing...
If we can just make love... Then we can keep...(ourselves busy)

Chances are we could grow old together... In this shitty world... There are great things
Chances are we could grow old together... In this shitty world... There are great things
Chances are we could... Grow old together... In this shitty world... In this beautiful world... Here are great things

Oh every morning when I wake up next to you... All I want to say is...
When I wake in your arms... All I want is your love
When I wake in your arms... All I want is your love

Am I waiting

I' m out of my head... That' s what everyone thinks...
It' s a general rule... You' re not allowed to be upset...
Cause it brings everyone around you down...
But I can' t go on pretending to be high...

Higher than life... I could " kiss the sky"... Or so he said...
Kiss my mouth... Does it taste the same... Or should I be dead?
Is that all this is? Am I waiting? What am I waiting for?

" You' ve got no right to be unhappy"...
Why not I reply? Aren' t I the same as anyone?
Give me the right... To use my life for what I like...
So maybe I can get that high again...

Oh, I' ve got to make my life... More than what I think it should be...
Oh, I' ve got to make my life... Mine...

Higher than life... I could " kiss the sky"... Or so he said...
Kiss my mouth... Does it taste the same... Or should I be dead?
Is that all this is? Am I waiting? What am I waiting for?

Why am I waiting for...

You to care... You to love... You to lose... You to wash my blood...
Wash my face... Clear my eyes... So I can see through this....
Through you... Through me... Through every Goddamn thing...
Through every Goddamn thing....

Boundless

I woke up this morning in an ocean... My day goes well...
I haven' t hurt anyone yet... I haven' t seen anyone at all...
Yes, I understand you have to go... But will you call me up sometime?
I just got away from everything... Now here I am... All alone in paradise...

I' ve heard be careful what you wish for...
But I ignored it might come true...

I woke up this morning in a new town... Can' t remember when I last saw a friend...
Counting down the hours till I find one... When will they come...
If they do will they be like me... Will they understand...
I just got away from everything... Now here I am... All alone in paradise...

A dream came true... And so the past had to die...
Faded from existence... Is this how everything ends...?

Is it lonely where you are... Cause it's cold over here...
Would you care to share the warmth...

Just pick up the phone and call me... Cause I' m afraid to call you...
I need someone who knows what I feel...
You know it doesn' t have to be this way...

If we could talk and see each other still then we won' t need memories...
I don' t want to go my own way...
Cause now I' m boundless... Boundless....

Angels and milkshakes

Daydream delusion... Limousine eyelash... Oh, baby with your blue eyes crying... Drop a tear in my wine glass...
Such a pretty face... Just look at what you mean to me... Or think you do...

Sweetcakes and milkshakes... I' m a delusioned angel... I' m a fantasy parade...
Sweetcakes and milkshakes... I' m a delusioned angel... And I' m here today...
But you know what they say...

I want you to know what I think... Don' t want to answer questions anymore...
You don' t know where I came from... You don' t know where I' m gone...
Latched in life like branches in the river...
Flowing downstream... Caught in the current...
I' ll carry you... Will you carry me... That' s how it could be...
Don' t you know me... Don' t you know me... Don' t you know me by now...

Sweetcakes and milkshakes... I' m a delusioned angel... I' m a fantasy parade...
Sweetcakes and milkshakes... I' m a delusioned angel... And I' m here today...
But you know what they say... Here today... Gone tomorrow...
I' ve got something to say...

Sweetcakes and milkshakes... You' ve been delusioned baby in this fantasy that you' ve made...
Sweetcakes and milkshakes... You' ve been amusing baby... And I thought that I might stay... But it's like I always say...
Here today... Gone tomorrow...

There' s angels out there everywhere but times have changed...
So be careful who you choose to love... Cause angels are only here for today...
Gone tomorrow...

Player in A tragedy

I didn' t mean to hit the ground... But it' s the fall that saved me...
It started when I had to see her... And then I had to hear her voice...
It got worse when she taught me to breathe... Then she convinced me that I wasn' t leaving...
And she pulled me back in... Oh, I' d let her do it all again...
As if I had a choice...

I went back on who I am... To be here alone...
Back on who I am... Now she is my home...

I hadn' t had much experience... With this happiness thing...
But she forced me upon this mood... Like a lonely soul who takes to drinking...
Then she struck my weaknesses... With a devilish glare...
Her oh so perpetual pout... And the smile I love and find so rare...

Am I happy? I can' t tell... But the smile suggests I am...
Or maybe I' m a player in a tragedy I wrote...
But the audience is laughing... So I' ll keep hamming it up...
And smiling politely... Smiling politely... Smiling...

Whatever may come

I watch you sleeping there... I watch your chest rise and fall...
All I can do is hope you dream of you and me entangled in our lovers waltz...
Can I say this to you tonight...? Will you let me stay in here tonight...?
If I behave...?
I' ll play the fool if you need the part... I need your mercy... I need to be where you are...

Are you looking for something beautiful...? Are you tired of these games...?
I' m tired but I' m not sleeping... I' m letting out my shame.... I' m letting out my shame...

I' ll lift you up and I' ll surprise you... I' ll keep you grounded with your head in the clouds...
I' ll be your hero and your slave... I' ll be the one you knight and the one you save...
Will you be my special lady...? Will you be my better half...?
Will you make me cry...? Will you make me...

Laugh if you want to... I won' t tell you anything other than where I want to go with you... I' m tired... But I' m not sleeping...
I' m letting out my shame... I' m letting out my shame...

I don' t want to be content... I want to be ecstatic... Won' t you excite me...
I don' t want to close my eyes... And not dream of you...

Won' t you sign your name next to mine.... Together we can pass the time...
Oh, I know, I know, I know... I' ve said I' m tired... But I' ll stand guard while you rest... And I' ll fight off whatever may come...
I' ll be your hero and your slave... I' ll be the one knight and the one you save...

I watch you sleeping there... I watch your chest rise and fall...
Rise and fall...
