Coming Clean

I found my place in the sun,
lied my way there.
I've looked in your eyes,
I'm coming clean.
I've made up my mind.
To lie would be to compromise and I won't try.
I'm sorry, I hope you'll forgive me
But what you want from me...is killing me.
ive made up my mind.
To lie would be to compromise and I won't try.


Don't Hate Me

Forgive me for running off to find the one thing I have to do.
Each night you can fall asleep assured that someday Ill be coming home to you.
These constant reminders in everything I see.
The chance of a lifetime what a great place to be.

Oh Amy, dont hate me, for running away from you.
Oh Amy, dont hate me. Im still in love with you!

Im sorry I cant be everything to you.
Your place is at the heart of what I do.
Everythings for you.

Oh Amy, dont hate me, for running away from you.
Oh Amy, dont hate me. Im still in love with you!
Oh Amy, Oh Amy, Oh Amy!
Oh Amy, Oh Amy, Oh Amy!
Oh Amy, dont hate me. Im still in love with you!

Every time I run away, its easier to stay.
At the heart, the heart is you in everything I do.
Every time I run away, its easier to stay.
At the heart, the heart is you in everything I do.


Fall Semester

If I tried, would you still call me son?
If I tried, would you call me at all?
If I say that I'll go, regardless, of what you want me to do
I'm better off without. I'm better off without you.
If I change my mind, it won't be soon enough for you,
but I'm not you...
I'll try to compromise for you to see
that theres so many other things for me to find out.
Run myself to the ground.
Would you please forgive me if I found my way back home?
Everything I see
Everything I do
Everywhere I've been,
These mean nothing to you?


Stay Gold, Ponyboy

this is the closest to this friend that i've been
i hope you find it on greener ground and bluer skies
i hope you dont think less of me if i'm cold
i dont want to watch you go
i'll cry until i see the whites of your eyes for two more years
we'll be old enough to know better, young enough to pretend
this is the last of my letters
i hope i find my home and i hope you're the first one in it
i know it won't be the same
i'll be there if you need anything at all you want to be
run around the world with me
state your distance but it's not a million miles away
if this is what will really make you happy
then i'll say that we'll be old enough to know better, young enough to pretend
this is the last of my letters until I see you again


Lowercase West Thomas

It's easier to say it's over
But I might still be pretending.
Not a single one will believe.
I can't say I wouldn't agree.
I dont know if I know myself at all anymore.
I gave up on what I couldn't give in.
I gave up.
I gave in.
 

Washington Square Park

It's better than nothing, it's better than you can get
What more could you want? What more could you ask for?
Living day by day is more than I can say about my life.
Living in denial, wipe that stupid smile away.
Through that ring again, throught that sick machine
Doesn't make you any stronger than you or anything you choose.
It's not abuse that many people live through.


Last Place You Look

The grass is always greener, as I'm sure that you've found out.
If I find my way back on the last leg of this trip,
I'm betting I find you there.
As long as it's constantly changing.
As long as its constantly sound.
If theres no sense of impending danger
Theres no sense in hanging around for the winter.
If I'm not gonna be in your arms around me...
What have I got if your there?
We'll be home in December.
The leaves don't fall from the trees
As long as you remember you are always with me.
It's not my place to find it, not something that I get to choose
But dont be scared cause your not something I'm willing to lose.
I'll bet you find it in the last place you look


Better Half

I saw my better half,
The better half of a decade,
Slip through my hands inside her hands inside my pockets.
When she reached for her advantages,
I should have done something.
I saw my baby boy digging his own hole,
Keeping alive family traditions.
When he lied about intentions,
I should have done something.
I should have done something.
Well, I blame myself for everything,
It keeps my conscience clean.
I've got bandages to prove it,
To prove it.
I saw my better half,
The better half of a decade,
Slip through my hands inside her hands inside my pockets.
When she reached for her advantages,
I should have done something...


No Love

If I gave everything
would you still listen to me

It could be so much better than this
It could be so much better

And I don't want you to love me anymore
And I don't want you to love me anymore than enough
I can't be held enough accountable, if
You can't make up your mind tonight

As much as I would like to I can't put my hands all over you
If I put myself in that position
myself to be
immune to you
Keep my heart from breaking
If you can't make up your mind

If I came home one last time
think of what the two of us could do

I guess we'll never know


Shorty

It's certainly true,
there's better things to do
And though I don't know everything
I wouldn't tell you anything if I did. 
The last time I saw you act like this
We were kids.
The last time I saw you act like this
We were kids. 

What am I to do? 
My heart goes out to you.
And though I don't know everything
I wouldn't tell you anything if I did. 
Over reacting, over again...
Just between friends. 

What am I to do? 
I won't come between you two. 
(What was I to do?)
I gave it. 
(What was I to say?)
I gave it all I could. 
(How was I to know?) 
I hope that you, you never find another friend like me.


Michelle With One "L"

Same holds from the same hands.
Five years strong, many times over and gone.
It's everything that I have to beat bridges much stronger and wide.
Fewer and farther between we meet again.
I'll try to well on my own.
Distance between's never been this far.
I realize that this time was something that I always knew,
only a fool wouldn't see.
Might aswell start my drinking days now if I'm really alone.
It's tempting.
Am I asking too much to keep you at arms length?
Am I asking too much to keep you at home?
Please don't go.
I know it's all gonna be fine
And I know that this is whats right.
