One Year Later

Wandering the K-10
As anniversaries end,
Pondering events that brought us here.

If anyone remember when
Around the world and back again
Was a dream not quite so clear?

Overwhelms
Over the hills and away
Was not a mistake.

Did that straight and narrow,
Nailed self-righteous arrow
Get to be so decadent?
Could you trade your lessons
To have grown-up in the process?
Remarks never relent.

Learned by your examples
And we learned by your mistakes.
Argue our positions,
It's a decision that we have to make.
It's not a mistake

If we had known
What we know now:
One year later, we'd still be around.

Got your full attention
Over hours of speculation,
Don't you know who knows? I know.

Finally make decisions?
Finally work it out?
Finally let it go?

We're not running backwards.
Don't you know,
That we love reunion shows.
This is not a swan song:
But it goes:

If we had known what we know now:
One year later, we'd still be around.

If we had known what we know now:
One year later, we'd still be around,
around, around.


Red Letter Day

you've got some nerve i never knew
what with the world we gave away in front of you
i see it all
much clearer now
you're just a phase i've gotten over anyhow
it's over, i'm not giving in again
we're loyal, like brothers
just us versus all the others
you're the one for
you're the one for me
i trusted misleading promises worth repeating
how could you do this to me?
red letter day that i learned
i'm sure you'll get what you deserve
i see it all
much clearer since
far past the point of this
it's over
we're loyal like brothers
just us versus all the others
you're the one for
you're the one for me
i trusted misleading promises worth repeating
how could you do this
how could you do this to me?
and if its a lie
i dont want to be the one who signed
i'm not the one who falls down
it's over now
if you wanna try
try to forget it
i'll say
its over
i'm gone
we're loyal, like brothers
just us versus all the others
you're the one for
you're the one for me
i trusted misleading promises worth repeating
how could you do this
how could you do this
how could you do this to me?


Forgive And Forget

I think I've waited long enough
Our world was once forget-me-nots
and now I wait another year.
I need you here.

I think I've heard this one before,
but it's not you walking through my door.
And then I'll wait another year.
I need you here.

Don't bother it now, let sleepers lie.
Bygones have all gone by.
Forget what we fought for, hard as I might,
don't have the will to fight.

Forgive and forget whatever was said
because we're growing up by the hour.
I never would let it go on like it did...
All good things have endings.


Anne Arbour

Sooner or later more,
These words to paper pour.
Compose apologies, To bring you back to me.
What words were written for…
One girl whose pages tore.
I’ll bet you never knew, With a letter came a fool for you.
She says she’d worked it out,
This room’s not big enough for two.
He swears she’d work his words out, If she ever knew.
How do I find her, Bearing my heart in hand.
Last winter, Anne Arbour Was all I had.
I still wear your heart around my throat
I still wear your heart around my throat
With barely the air not to choke.
Never, not ever again.
I finally replaced every promise you’ve taken away.
Now that it’s over, I’m older and colder this way.
I finally replaced every promise you’ve taken away.
How do I find her, Bearing my heart in my hand.
Last winter, Anne Arbour was all I had.


Mass Pike

I wonder when I wander home
If I'll be fit to drink alone
Sleep with my memories
Pictures apologies

For every minute yesterday
Regret reminds me anyway
If I remember anything
I'll make mistakes again

Last night on the Mass Pike
Thought I was losing you
Last night on the Mass Pike
I fell in love with you

I will declare a holiday
The night that she turned me away
I'm drowning in my miseries
It solves everything

Last night on the Mass Pike
Thought I was losing you
Last night on the Mass Pike
I fell in love with you...
With you

Last night on the Mass Pike
Thought I was losing you
Last night on the Mass Pike
I fell in love with you

Last night on the Mass Pike
Thought I was losing you
Last night on the Mass Pike
I fell in love with you

Woodson

We cannot work out what has to be said...
an image painted black in the back of my head...
It came so clear last night, you showed me that your
words mean more than actions do...
I was listening to you.
Someone is listening, and that someone is you.
You build me up, you break me down again and I take it.
If this night, if this kiss were something real...


Second Place

It's been proven, hundreds over since,
The decision was the best that we could make
If I wasn't clear enough before
That's not what I said
Thatn's not what I said
And I bent over backwards just to speak
If you've got things straight in your head
Then you've got bigger problems than me
I'll send you straight to your room
Until you calm down
Until you're thought through what you want to say
This isn't me
As much as it may seem
If you're still thinking
And if you're still
That's not what I said
That's not what I said
And I bent over backwards just to speak
If you won't let sleeping dogs die
Then I'm giving up on this one


A New Found Interest In Massachusetts

If I told you that I was thinking of moving east,
would you save a place for me?
I'll come home cause it's worse that I expected.
A place in my heart for my home to the west
where we'll watch the same sunsets,
and when I doubt...
I'll look east and lock my heart in a brass box
to newfound mass.
I'm breaking off but this is my home.
I'd do anything for you,
give you the world if I could.
Is that what you want me to do?
These bridges and boundaries are bringing me closer to you


Off The Wagon

They're my reasons for getting over this,
And it's not much better than
Waking up with your head in your hands
When your arms are tired from supporting you.
It's better in the long run,
But this is the worst day of my life.
I'm giving in.
This can't be much better than dying.
I'm going back to my selfish ways,
I'm giving up what I could forget.
I've tried, came out better the first time.
If this is all you see, then have a drink on me
And look whose laughing now... again.
