Lyrics

You

You
You don’t have to care for me
And you don’t have to be mine
But it feels like I’m drowning
In your eyes
I could see the rest of our lives
Even when you’re sleeping
Oh
I’ll do all the dreaming

For you
Hey yeah
I see everything you do
You
Hey yeah
But you don’t see me the way I see you

I
I saw the pictures online
Do you like being with him?
I’ll try to keep my distance
But sometimes
I find myself gazing through the blinds
Even when you’re sleeping
Oh
I’ll do all the dreaming

For you
Hey yeah
I see everything you do
You
Hey yeah
But you don’t see me the way I see you

I saw you there
But you didn’t seem to care
I saw your there
But you didn’t seem to care

Problems

You swear you’re doing okay
You finally found a resolution
And you’re done living on Broadway
I know that’s not the case
Drama seems to follow you faster
Than an actor on the stage
I’ve seen this play
About seven hundred times before

I don’t want your problems
I don’t think we can solve them
And I don’t wanna start ’em
Just keep your problems
Sitting at the front door
I don’t want your problems
I don’t think we can solve them
And I don’t wanna start ’em
Just keep your problems
Sitting at the front door

You say you’re doing alright
That you’re going through the motions
Stepping out of the warm limelight
I know that that’s a lie
I can see the pain hiding and lurking
Behind award winning eyes

I’ve seen this play
About seven hundred times before

I don’t want your problems
I don’t think we can solve them
And I don’t wanna start ’em
Just keep your problems
Sitting at the front door

I don’t want your problems
I don’t think we can solve them
And I don’t wanna start ’em
Just keep your problems
Sitting at the front door

I won’t fall for the bait
I’ve got enough here on my plate
I won’t fall for the bait
I’ve got enough here on my plate

I don’t want your problems
I don’t think we can solve them
And I don’t wanna start ’em
Just keep your problems
Sitting at the front door

I don’t want your problems
I don’t think we can solve them
And I don’t wanna start ’em
Just keep your problems
Sitting at the front door

Somebody New

I’m walking on my own
Thousands of miles from my home
It might be way too soon
But you remind me of somebody I once knew

You and me
We could be a lost cause together
I don’t know where we’re going
But I wanna go there with you
You’re on the fence
Take a chance
I’ve never been better
I don’t know if it’s true
Or the heat of meeting somebody new
Somebody new

A bullet buried deep
I’ve sewn it up
And now it’s a part of me
Tend to my fresh wounds
Blind me in sweet perfume
Won’t you spend the night?
I could use somebody new by my side

You and me
We could be a lost cause together
I don’t know where we’re going
But I wanna go there with you
You’re on the fence
Take a chance
I’ve never been better
I don’t know if it’s true
Or the heat of meeting somebody new
Somebody new

Took a ride on the merry-go-round
Look at all of the horsies I found
But they’re not real
Took a ride on the merry-go-round
Look at all of the horsies I found
But they’re not real

You and me
We could be a lost cause together
I don’t know where we’re going
But I wanna go there with you
You’re on the fence
Take a chance
I’ve never been better
I don’t know if it’s true
Or the heat of meeting somebody new
Somebody new

You and me
We could be a lost cause together
I don’t know where we’re going
But I wanna go there with you
Was on the fence
Took a chance
Yeah I’ve been better
I don’t know if it’s true
But I heard you met somebody new
Somebody new

I Lost Myself

I had a drink with a good friend a month ago
Reminisced about high school and the lows
He bought a house with another baby on the way
But something seems to be missing from the picture frame

You’re mom and dad are proud
And tell their friends you’re doing well
They say that’s life
But you’re going through hell
Petrified that you’ll collect dust on a shelf
As you say

I think I lost myself
Been looking for the man that I once was
When I was just a little kid
I miss my shovel and pail
I think I lost myself

You took the job and told yourself one year
Now the pay is to good
To turn and switch gears
Your wife at home is about to make her last stand
You spend the weekend
Like it doesn’t cost you a thing

You’re petrified that you’ll collect dust on a shelf
As you say

I think I lost myself
Been looking for the man that I once was
When I was just a little kid
I miss my shovel and pail
I think I lost myself

Sometimes we lose a little part of ourselves
To make some room for what’s to come
Sometimes we lose a little part of ourselves
To make some room for what’s to come

Don’t Let Me Down

The clouds couldn’t keep me
When I saw your troubled face
Maybe we can turn this shit around
If you really need me
We’ll shoot a star out into space
And count until it falls back to the ground
Gliding safe and sound

We’re flying high
Don’t let me down
I will stay here in our rose colored love
But don’t let me down

I know you’re disappointed
But when was that never the case?
Don’t you wanna take another look around?
I know it’s only morning
The weight’s getting too much to take
But we could sleep together on this tonight

I don’t want to fight

We’re flying high
Don’t let me down
I will stay here in our rose colored love
But don’t let me down

Don’t you let me down
Don’t you let me down
Don’t you let me down
If you leave me
Let me down easy

Don’t you let me down
Don’t you let me down

Vampire (Close to the Dark)

Vampire (Close to the Dark)

I know it’s not fair
But when did I really care?
I’m going out to reek havoc on the city tonight
Emotions impaired
Just how I left them there
I’m hungry and I need a taste just to survive

Kiss my neck
And I’ll kiss yours
All of these witches and ghouls
Monsters and werewolves
Lock the door
Throw away the key
The only thing I have left to fear
Is me

So hold me close to the dark
So I can see your little sparks
The light outside
It hurts my eyes
And it drains my thirsty heart
Just keep me close to the dark

You know I’m not proud
I’m sorry to let you down
I told myself this would be the last night
Okay?

I know it’s not right
To bleed all the others dry
But what can I say?
I’m a vampire looking for shade

Kiss my neck
And I’ll kiss yours
Push the stake in without a single ounce
Of remorse

And hold me close to the dark
So I can see your little sparks
The light outside
It hurts my eyes
And it drains my thirsty heart
Just keep me close to the dark

When the sun comes up
I can’t help but to feel alive and crack a smile
Maybe it’ll be different this time
But as the day goes on
I start to combust from deep down inside
The light outside is far too bright

Just hold me close to the dark
So I can see your little sparks
The light outside
It hurts my eyes
And it drains my thirsty heart
Just keep me close to the dark

Planning On It

Ticktock on a tin clock
As a story unfolds
My stomach sinks down to my feet
A cafe is the backdrop
The room that you chose
To lay the curtain down on me
The cloak and the dagger
You already hold
Go ahead and cut me at the seams
You say it’s not easy
To tailor into words
But you already wear it on your sleeve

I bet you were planning on it
Running through the scenarios
Inside of your head
Over and over again
I bet you were planning on it
Planning on it

Hopscotch on a blacktop
With our three little girls
I could see it all vividly
We’d grow old at our tempo
Keep the rhythm nice and simple
And the others would follow our beat

I was really planning on it
Reciting a little fairy tale
Inside of my head
Over and over again
I was really planning on it

I didn’t see this coming
I had it all laid out
We’d outlive earth
Always relying on the future
To inflate our raft and current worth
But the days become years
And the hopes become fears
That we were only planning on it

Planning on it

I was really planning on it
I’ll try to be the happiest and the best that I can
Tomorrow might be the end
And we’re never planning on it

Lost Transmissions

You’re telling me
You’re telling me I’ve gotta move on
But there are too many lines to call it quits
And I can’t wrap my head without your
Arm around it
I’m getting mixed signals
Yeah they’re trying to get through
An interference of the heart
A static whisper tuning me to you

So all that I can do
Is listen to the news

Because the singers on the radio
Are telling me I can’t go home
And that all the love we will ever need
Is right here
And the actors on the tv screen
Are telling me it’s meant to be
And that all of the sour memories are gone
Yeah they’re gone, gone, gone
Into the sweet dawn
Like lost transmissions

Listen to me
Listen to me
Are my words not coming in clear?
Are you haunted by the ghosts?
Cause’ they’ve been howling all night
Through my stereo

Dead air and missed cues
Frankly I’m not amused
This game is over but let me make one more move
Win or lose

Because the singers on the radio
Are telling me I can’t go home
And that all the love we will ever need
Is right here
And the actors on the tv screen
Are telling me it’s meant to be
And that all of the sour memories are gone
Yeah they’re gone, gone, gone
Into the sweet dawn
Like lost transmissions

We’re dancing on the airwaves searching for
Where we left our hearts broken
Skin and bones
A frequency that plays
When we’re on our own, yeah
We’re dancing on the airwaves searching for
Where we left our hearts broken
Skin and bones
A frequency that plays
When we’re on our own

Because the singers on the radio
Are telling me I can’t go home
And that all the love we will ever need
Is right here
And the actors on the tv screen
Are telling me it’s meant to be
And that all of the sour memories are gone
Yeah they’re gone, gone, gone
Into the sweet dawn
Like lost transmissions

So all that I can do
Is hope that you hear them too

Sight For Sore Eyes

I’ve been finally saved
I was down
I was barely breathing
You took me in and you let me out
Into a world
So deeply flawed
But beautiful in design
Say goodbye to my worried mind

Cause’ now I’ve got a reason
And now I’ve got a cause
I met you in a season
Where light was swift to fall

Can’t you see you’re all I want
Steal the day and outshine the sun
Take it from me baby, it’s alright
I have no need for these summer skies
Cause’ you’re a sight for sore eyes

I was caught in the waves
Of inconsistencies, hypocrisies and nights with myself
Your lingering gaze is warm and dry
So here I stand
On a cliff with the world in my right hand
So perfect to me
It could make me cry

And if these rocks went crashing
And the earth lost to the sea
I would pull you one inch closer
There’s no other place that I’d rather be

Can’t you see you’re all I want
Steal the day and outshine the sun
Take it from me baby, it’s alright
I have no need for these summer skies
Cause’ you’re a sight for sore eyes

Can’t you see you’re all I want
Steal the day and outshine the sun
Take it from me baby, it’s alright
I have no need for these summer skies
Cause’ you’re a sight for sore eyes

Can’t you see you’re all I want
Steal the day and outshine the sun
Take it from me baby, it’s alright
I have no need for these summer skies
I have no need for these summer skies
