Everywhere we've been all adds up to nothing cause we're still far away Everything I touch tries to tell me something but I can't hear a thing Oh but to be up here Breathing the morning air Trying to find something that isn't there Everyone I meet says the grass is greener on their side of the street Spending all my time trying to work things over it's so hard to compete Oh but to be up here Breathing the morning air Trying to find something that isn't there I know who you are And I won't let you fade away I have loved and guided you this far Hold on one more day... Hold on one more day...

Hearts and stars collide for you I read it in the bathroom I knew it all along to be true Lovers dance in time in twos I’ve seen it done so I know they do The music swelled it was grand, never took your hand Wide awake and up all hours Exiled on main street with only dead flowers I’ll never sleep-in the same way again Don’t magically think twice just remember it so, it was so nice Only after dark he sang I hear the song,i don’t say his name I'm leaving space to wonder who I knew To hell with times I cried for you don’t forget you hung the moon I'll recall it all the way I want to Wide awake until all hours The sounds of silence, the slowing down I’d never reach out my hand the same again For the room alone With no one to make excuses for us I could sway with you with my eyes closed, for a lifetime Oh, Let’s magically think twice I’ll remember it’s so, it was so nice

You’re a rat! You’re a snake in the grass! You’re a mule! Back away you stubborn ass! I mean what in the world were you thinkin’? I guess I’ll pass on the glass of what you’re drinkin’ ‘Cuz I’m a fool, not blind I saw it with my own eyes! Did you ever once think twice? Hippy-dippy, phoney-baloney, good time Charlie! Don’t look back, make excuses, don’t say sorry If this all sounds familiar to you It’s only ‘cuz everyone else has sung it too And if this song lacks originality Well it’s only because you don’t deserve the best of me ‘Cuz I’m a fool, not blind I saw it with my own eyes! Did you ever once think twice in your life? Good time Charlie, I’ve got some bad news for you!

All of these crushes Though I’ll never know their touches When they speak and sing, oh! How I feel them resonate! Wayfaring, weakened Desperately we pray for the weekend What’s it going to take to make us right as rain again? I won’t hesitate Place blame on the weekend But it can happen any day, don’t pretend Oh! Tenderheart don’t lie in wait! Don’t hesitate Don’t do this on your own again All of these grudges Stubbornly remain in our clutches At the same time both of us should let go I won’t hesitate…please, don’t hesitate

I woke up today trying to figure out Which part of my brain I keep calling my broken heart Because my heart does its job It’s my mind that don’t know the part I remember when I last saw you I left as you entered; we did not speak You just smiled and hugged me And went on to live your last week I’m wasting your time I know you don’t mind If we talk for awhile You know that it helps me get back on my feet I woke up today and I put on a suit That you would’ve loved and I carried your casket Into the sunlight; I cried for your mother I just couldn’t mask it Some people say when your photo is taken So is your soul but how can that be? I don’t have your soul but I’ve got your smile In the picture I keep ----------------------- Do you mind if I turn off the radio? Because the song that’s playing The sound that it’s making Yeah that trumpet is breaking my heart! I knew him well and I think about him all the time And I know that you don’t mind If we sit here and just talk about him A little while longer…

You’re so tired From walking through our dreams again Weary from the miles Whither shall you wander? In the minds of more admirers? Be careful what you say in there What’s the matter? Nothing’s over Don’t you want to seize the day? Yes, I’m listening, I’m always listening When you speak I hang on every word Prayed for rain And that made it harder to complain When the flooding came Anything that ain’t nailed down Just might float away Be careful when you pray again

Cast all fear by the wayside Take notice when you arrive You inherited the wind and took it for a ride Steady looking down at my cell phone Ain’t nothin’ but the minute changed I know you like me better when I step outta range And fall into line Here goes another night… We could… Dance in the evening Drink through the night Laugh ‘til the morning Then do it all again But you know that I gotta find A way not to lose my mind Cast all fear by the wayside Just knowing that you’re obliged Got a look on your face like you ain’t ever tried Foot on the pedal Thousand yard stare Down for whatever All “Devil-may-care” I get so nervous when you get on such a tear And step outta line Here comes another fight… Well it’s good for the gander But is it good for me now The peace that I’m after Has yet to be found You know that I gotta find A way not to lose my mind

Do you remember when we took all of our friends To that restaurant in the sticks? We got our picture taken in a jail cell Makes me want to get away To Puerto Peňasco And drink on the beach all day I’m gonna call my guy and he’ll say “I don’t mind I’m there all the time I go down all the time Me and Martha ain’t scared Well, we go once a year We go down all the time” Carrie Lynn I hear you sneakin’ in again Up on the roof of the front porch havin’ trouble with the bedroom window These kids are gonna drive us crazy That’s why I wanna get away And drink on the beach all day I’m gonna call Tom Dye and he’ll say “I don’t mind I’m there all the time I go down all the time Me and Martha ain’t scared Well we go twice a year We go down all the time” “I don’t mind I’m there all the time I go down all the time Me and Martha ain’t scared Hell, we’re movin’ down there We go down all the time Come down any time you like”

If I wasn’t such a familiar face How would you put me in my place? Cuz I can’t help but think that If you didn’t know me You’d be there to cut me down “Worst song, worst sound, leave town.” Mowing everybody down, but here I am: right side up! If you didn’t know me by my name Would you respect me just the same? or would ya Murmur that you hate me? Huh? Eviscerate me? Use your tongue to cut me down? “Worst tune, worst band in the whole town.” Mowing everybody down, but here I am: Right side up! I’ll keep cool. I’m old enough to know my role. Don’t worry, I won’t repeat a thing that cold. I’ll keep cool. I’m young enough to join in too. Don’t worry. I’m just as unimpressed as you. Maybe one day I’ll be miles away Still I could guess what you might say “Used to be better, used to be bold Looking kinda tired now. Old dog, old trick, put him down.” Mowing everybody down, but here I am: Right side up! I’ll keep cool. I’m old enough to know my role. Don’t worry, I won’t repeat a thing that cold. I’ll keep cool. I’m young enough to join in too. Don’t worry, I’m just as unimpressed as you.

Like a withered garland around my neck I’m dwelling on the relics I can salvage from the wreck I’m homeless on the range White knuckled and estranged when you shake my cage Like a muddy footprint collecting rain I’m reaching out at the reflection of your face In cryptic choppy lines That you wind around my mind Because we never quite found the right way to say hello But you look at me like a madman you’d like to know Like a late noon shadow casting black Everything we utter we wish we could take back And how can you be sure of the meaning of your words When we never quite found the right way to say hello But you look at me like a madman you’d like to know? You missed the point or the point missed you What to do? We never quite found the right way to say hello You look at me like a madman you’d like to know
