I know I can't take one more step towards you
Cause all that's waiting is regret
And don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore?
You lost the love
I loved the most

And I learned to live, half-alive
And now you want me one more time

Who do you think you are?
Runnin' round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are?

I hear you're asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

And I learned to live, half-alive
And now you want me one more time

Who do you think you are?
Runnin round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are?

Dear, it took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
Cause you broke all your promises
And now you're back
You don't get to get me back

Who do you think you are?
Runnin' round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

And who do you think you are?
Runnin round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Who do you think you are?

Who do you think you are?

Who do you think you are?

Subject:For You
Security:Public
Mood: hopeful

If you be my star I'll be your sky,
You can hide underneath me and come out at night,
When I turn jet black and you show off your light,
I live to let you shine,

But you can skyrocket away from me,
And never come back if you find another galaxy,
Far from here with more room to fly,
Just leave me your stardust to remember you by.

Mood: nostalgic

I feel unhappy,
I feel so sad,
I've lost the best friend,
That I ever had,
She was my woman,
I loved her so,
But it's too late now,
I've let her go,
I'm going through changes...I'm going through changes,
We shared the years,
We shared each day,
In love together,
We found a way,
But soon the world,
Had its evil way,
My heart was blinded,
Love went astray,
I'm going through changes...I'm going through changes,
It took so long,
To realize,
That I can still hear,
Her last goodbyes,
Now all my days,
Are filled with tears,
Wish I could go back,
And change these years,
I'm going through changes...I'm going through changes.

He lives his life in a world full of women
And he takes what he wants from their love
And he throws the rest away
I cling to him and pray
But still he slips away
And now it's just too late
To wish him back again

She won't put up with this life so she leaves him
And she finds someone else, falls in love
And she travels far away
I say that it's ok
And swallow all my pain
And now it's just too late
To wish her back again

They left me here on my own in a nightmare
And I just can't forgive any more
So I smile and turn away
Don't listen when they say
They wish that I could stay
And now it's just too late
To wish me back again

You can sleep upon my doorstep, you can promise me indifference Jim,

There's blood spilled on the floor.
Everyone's staring at you-- what for?
Till you realize the blood is probably yours...

You feel you lost something. You want it back.
You're lying motionless on your back,
And your legs aren't taking anymore requests.

Subject:Future
Security:Public
Mood: cheerful

I'll be the grapes fermented,
Bottled and served with the table set in my finest suit
Like a perfect gentlemen
I'll be the fire escape that's bolted to the ancient brick
Where you will sit and contemplate your day

I'll be the waterwings that save you if you start drowning
In an open tab when your judgment's on the brink
I'll be the phonograph that plays your favorite
Albums back as you're lying there drifting off to sleep...
I'll be the platform shoes and undo what heredity's done to you...
You won't have to strain to look into my eyes
I'll be your winter coat buttoned and zipped straight to the throat
With the collar up so you won't catch a cold

I want to take you far from the cynics in this town
And kiss you on the mouth
We'll cut our bodies free from the tethers of this scene,
Start a brand new colony
Where everything will change,
We'll give ourselves new names (identities erased)
The sun will heat the grounds
Under our bare feet in this brand new colony
Everything will change, oOo oOo...

Subject:Giving it all Away
Security:Public
Mood: nostalgic

I'm giving it all away tonight
To the first girl who comes up and says you are alright
We can watch the stars in the same way
For one night and then I'll go away
Because I don't want to be tied too tight
That's why I'm giving it all away tonight

Open up, let me out please
All I've ever wanted is to leave
The sun some day is going to die
That's why I'm giving it all away tonight
Because I've given up on everything that's mine
For no reason I'm tied to trees
My shoulders scarred from shaky leaves
Run and hide along roadsides
I'm giving it all away tonight

Open up, let me out, please
All I've ever wanted is to leave
The sun some day is going to die
That's why I'm giving it all away tonight

Giving it all away tonight
Cause I haven't been that good at being quiet
I knew someone whose body moved
The same way that my body moves
I know there was somebody right
And she's giving it all away tonight.

Subject:Several Arrows Later
Security:Public
Mood: bored

orange streetlight picks up when the summer sun goes
on tops of buildings red remains
it's the differences in light that gets our minds, that gets our minds
give waking up for never fading

and i walked up to you
holding on to the rail i was not fine
my intentions proved
i thought i would go further
several arrows later will be fine

i am listening
i'm hearing every single word
i see breath and sighs and changing minds
i told myself not to remind me of the things i could've been
i told myself not to remind me

and i walked up to you
holding on to the rail i was not fine
my intentions proved
i thought i would go further
several arrows later will be fine

you should not want to sound they like do
you should want to sound like you
you should not want to sound they like do

and i am listening
i'm hearing every single word
i see breath and sighs and changing minds
i told myself not to remind me of the things i could've been
i told myself not to remind me.

Subject:Losing Bodies Tonight
Security:Public
Mood: sad

The absence of God will bring you comfort, baby
And plannings for the poor so let's pretend that we're rich
And I'm not my body or how I choose to destroy it
Folk singers sing songs for the working, baby

We're just recreation for all those doctors and lawyers
There's no relief for the bleeding heart
'Cause they'll be losing bodies tonight

And Rob says you love, love, love and then you die
I've watched him while sleeping and seen him crying with closed eyes
And you're not happy but you're funny and I'm tripping over my joy
But I just keep on getting up again

We could be daytime drunks if we wanted
We'd never get anything done that way baby
And we'd still be ruled by our dueling perspectives
And I'm not my perspective
Or the lies I'll tell you every time

And Morgan says, maybe love won't let you down
All of your failures are training grounds
And just as your back's turned you'll be surprised she says
As your solitude subsides

And Mike I'll teach you how to swim
If you turn the bad in me into good again

And I say there's trouble
When everything is fine
The need to destroy things
Creeps up on me every time
Just as love's silhouette appears
I close my eyes and disappear tonight

And something's got to change
'Cause our love's the slowest moving train

Subject:...And I Never Have
Security:Public
Mood: mellow

Could this be an arm around my waist?
well, surely the hand contains a knife?
it's been so all of my life
why change now?
"it hasn't!"

Now this might surprise you, but,
I find I'm OK by myself
and I don't need you
or your morality to save me
no, no, no, no, no

Then came an arm around my shoulder
well surely the hand holds a revolver?
it's been so all of my life
why change now?
"it hasn't!"

Now this might disturb you, but
I find I'm OK by myself
and I don't need you
or your benevolence to make sense

After all these years I find I'm OK by myself
and I don't need you
or your homespun philosophy
no, no, no, no

This might make you throw up in your bed:
I'M OK BY MYSELF!
and I don't need you
and I never have, I never have.

Subject:Country Mile
Security:Public
Mood: tired

Silver Birch against a Swedish sky
The singer in the band made me want to cry
We’re all inside our own heads now
We are leaving new friends
leaving this town
I wish you could be here with me
I would show you off like a trophy
The road it winds, it twists, it turns, oh my stomach burns

Once again I’ll be the foolish one
Thinking a blink of these lashes would make you come
Don’t you worry, don’t get in a state
I don’t believe in true love anyway
Who’s being pessimistic now
I could document this as our first, as our last row
The more you look forlorn, the more to you I warm.

I won’t be seeing you for a long while
Oh I hope it’s not as long as these country miles
I feel lost, I feel lost.

No I wont be seeing you for a long while
Oh I hope its not as long as these country miles
I feel lost, i feel lost.

No I wont be seeing you for a long while
I hope its not as long as these country miles
I feel lost, I feel lost.

No i wont be seeing you for a long while
I hope its not as long as these country miles
I feel lost,
I feel lost,
I feel lost,
I got lost.

Security:Public
Mood: blah

darling stop confusing me
with your wishful thinking
hopeful embraces
don't you understand?
i have to go through this
i belong to here where
no-one cares and no-one loves
no light no air to live in
a place called hate
the city of fear

i play dead
it stops the hurting
i play dead
and hurting stops

it's sometimes just like sleeping
curling up inside my private tortures
i nestle into pain
hug suffering
caress every ache

i play dead
it stops the hurting

Mood: numb

Lalalalalala...

Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you wanna start something new
And it's breakin' my heart you're leavin'
Baby, I'm grievin'
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby, it's a wild world
and I'll always remember you like a child, girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breakin' my heart in two
Because I never wanna see you sad, girl
Don't be a bad girl
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Lalalalala....

Baby, I love you
But if you wanna leave, take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Subject:"Title and registration"
Security:Public
Mood: depressed

The glove compartment is inaccurately named
And everybody knows it.
So i'm proposing a swift orderly change.

Cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
And all i find are souvenirs from better times
Before the gleam of your taillights fading east
To find yourself a better life.

I was searching for some legal document
As the rain beat down on the hood
When i stumbled upon pictures i tried to forget
And that's how this idea was drilled into my head

Cause it's too important
To stay the way it's been

There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade
And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all
And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
Lying awake at night

There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade
And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all
And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
Lying awake at night (up all night)
When i'm lying awake at night.
