Would it Kill You?

Would it Kill You?

I’m watching, I’m waiting, my memory’s degrading
It’s (fucked / messed) up you told me, but now I am raising
The bar now you lie there in silence just breathing
Your whispers they’re screaming the echoes receding in my head

Your lips so sweet lying there I’m in too deep

So tell me why you want to just lay here and lose it all, it’s not my fault

If your heart would stop beating and then you lost all feeling
And you die here beside me I wonder if I’ll be ready to close this chapter in our lives

The seconds they pass by like highlights of our lives
Your color is changing, your blue eyes are fading
It’s quiet, I’ve come down my mind can relax now
The darkness is haunting the panic is creeping

And I can’t see with the lights out so, let it all just fade away

You heart it stopped beating and then you lost all feeling
You died here beside me I wonder if I’ll ready to close this chapter in our lives

So, tell me why you want to just lay here and lose it all, it’s not my fault
And I can’t see with the lights out so let it all just fade away

You heart it stopped beating and then you lost all feeling
You died here beside me I know that I am ready to close this chapter in our lives

Bad Radio

Bad Radio

I’ll leave this city
I’ll leave this city up in flames
I’ll give it all
You know I’ll give it all away

Strike a match inside your mind
You’ll find it’s all just wasted time
And it’s so crystal clear
So why are we still here?

One night stands and meaningless messages we’ll take it all
(And throw it all away)
Bad radio and stupid superstitions we’ll leave it behind
(There’s nothing left to say)
We’ll leave here tonight and we’ll be together
Let’s take this town and we’ll turn it upside down
Take this town and we’ll turn it upside down
We’ll take this town and we’ll turn it upside down

I’ve been so lost and my starry eyes are wide
Cause you’ve come down
Under this night sky we can hide

Strike a match inside your mind
You’ll find it’s all just wasted time
And it’s so crystal clear
So why are we still here?

One night stands and meaningless messages we’ll take it all
(And throw it all away)
Bad radio and stupid superstitions we’ll leave it behind
(There’s nothing left to say)
We’ll leave here tonight and we’ll be together
Let’s take this town and we’ll turn it upside down
Take this town and we’ll turn it upside down
We’ll take this town and we’ll turn it upside down

One night stands and meaningless messages we’ll take it all
Bad radio and stupid superstitions we’ll leave it behind us

One night stands and meaningless messages we’ll take it all
(And throw it all away)
Bad radio and stupid superstitions we’ll leave it behind
(There’s nothing left to say)
We’ll leave here tonight and we’ll be together
Let’s take this town and we’ll turn it upside down
Take this town and we’ll turn it upside down
Let’s take this town and we’ll turn it upside down

Eraser

Eraser

I can’t erase her, you won’t understand
Think I’m just tired of (making / fucking) plans
I thought I could move her like I moved in you
Nothing but distance and nothing to lose

Lay me down a melody
Just like I knew you could
Can we erase a memory?
Oh eraser, you’re so good
You’re so good

Just being around you, I’m wild and free
But it’s just perception, or maybe it’s me
To hell with your innocence, in a moment it’s lost
Just like those memories that we both forgot

Lay me down a melody
Just like I knew you could
Can we erase a memory?
Oh eraser, you’re so good
You’re so good

And if you want all then you’ll take it all
We’ve always just been that way
I can show you how but my problem now
Is I can’t erase you away

So I’ll throw out your sweater
These old faded jeans
Drive to the ocean
Leave you to dream

Lay me down a melody
Just like I knew you could
Can we erase a memory?
Oh eraser, you’re so good
You’re so good

Fast Forward

Fast Forward

Oh you never were a waste of time
And I’ve never lost so much sleep
It was your love, your love I couldn’t find
And the visions telling me I’m in too deep

There are questions, questions in our minds
And I know that I will find some way
And you really never told me the truth
But honestly I didn’t want it anyway

Now I’m sitting here talking with you in the rain
Watching all our dreams just disappear
Now I’m sitting here talking with you in the rain
The falling drops they all just look like tears

So fast forward the longest three damn years
And I wonder do you ever think of me
Time and time again just another casualty in my head
Why am I alone? Why can’t I call you?

Now I’m sitting here staring at you in the rain
Now that all my dreams have disappeared
Now I’m sitting here I’m staring at you in the rain
The falling drops they all just look like tears

So fast forward the loneliest five damn years
And your children all look just like you
Are you in love? Have you found your place?
With empty eyes the tears stream down your face

Now I’m waiting here I’m watching your life in the rain
You never thought it’d turn out quite this way
Now I’m waiting here I’m watching your life in the rain
I never thought that I’d be your mistake

All those things I never said
All those time you walked away
All I ever wanted was to hold you

Oh you never were a waste of time

Damn Those Girls

Damn Those Girls

I sit and wait for you to come around again
Deep thoughts in my head again
All I wanna do is be the butter to your bread, yeah
I hate those lines, I always hear too much
I’ve waited so long here
My soul waits still, to go out through that open door
But that door is gone

All I want is you to wake up and fall head over heels
You dig me way down, and buy me deep
Was it so hard for you to hear me out? Well I guess so
God damn those girls, they do it to me every time
God damn those girls, I never want to fall in line

See me, I wanted to be the engine to your Chevrolet
Rev me up but this motor’s blown again
Tell me, read me like an open book
In all those stories I’m all alone

All I want is you to wake up and fall head over heels
You dig me way down, and buy me deep
Was it so hard for you to hear me out? Well I guess so
God damn those girls, they do it to me every time
God damn those girls, I never want to fall in line

Pleased To Meet You

Pleased to Meet You

Take my vitals, watch my heart explode
I know one thing, how you begged me not to go
Candles light the way, light the way to your eyes
I’d do anything, just to make you walk away

Walking away, how do you do, what you did to me?
So what do you do, when you’re fading away?
I’m pleased to meet you, but I can’t stay with you

Walk a straight line, change can always be good
Tried to tell you, tried to tell you I’m no good
Wont just send you, I can’t send you away
I thought I saw you, thought I saw you walk away

Walking away, how do you do, what you did to me?
So, what do you do, when you’re fading away?
I’m pleased to meet you, but I can’t stay with you

Walk away, walking away, how do you do, what you did to me?
So, what do you do, when you’re fading away?
I’m pleased to meet you, but I can’t stay

So, walk away, walking away, how do you do, what you did to me?
So, what do you do, when you’re fading away?
I’m pleased to meet you, but I can’t stay with you

Sulphur

Sulphur

Put under the pressure but it’s not fair
And I can see better without you there
No revolution with nothing to do
I know it’s not that easy to do but I feel I gotta give it up to you

18 not a thing to learn, a tank full of gas and a bridge to burn
waiting my whole life to shine through
Settle down and breathe for a while cause that’s the only thing that’s worth my time
Someday I’m gonna stick it back to you

Am I going crazy, or am I just insane
This match in my pocket is burning to flame
And no resolution, with nothing to do
I know it’s not that easy to choose but I feel I gotta give it up to you

18 and nothing to learn, a tank full of gas and a bridge to burn
Waiting my whole life to shine through
Settle down and breathe for a while cause that’s the only thing that’s worth my time
Someday I’m gonna stick it back to you

Put under the pressure but it’s not fair
And I can see better without you there
And no revolution with nothing to do
I know it’s not that easy to do but I feel I gotta give it up to you

18 and nothing to learn, a tank full of gas and a bridge to burn
Waiting my whole life to shine through
Settle down and breathe for a while cause that’s the only thing that’s worth my time
Someday I’m gonna stick it back to you

Gonna stick it back to you
Gonna stick it back to you
