Jimmy Eat World

Bleed American

Iím not alone because the TVís on, yeah
Iím not crazy because I take the right pills every day and rest
Clean your conscience
Clear your thoughts with speyside
With your grain

Salt sweat sugar on the asphalt
Our hearts littering the topsoil
Tune in
And we can get the last call
Sign up
Itís the picket line or the parade
Our lives
Our coal

I bled the greed from my arm
Wonít they give it a rest now?
Now? Now? Now?

A Praise Chorus

Are you going to live your life wondering
Standing in the back, looking around?
Are you going to waste your time thinking
How youíve grown up
How you missed out?

Things are never going to be the way you want
Whereís it going to get you acting serious?
Things are never going to be quite what you want
Even at twenty-five you got to start sometime

Are you going to live your life standing in the back looking around?
Are you going to waste your time?
Got to make a move or you'll miss out

Someone is going to ask you what itís all about
Stick around nostalgia wont let you down
Someone is going to ask you what itís all about
What are you going to have to say for yourself??

Iím on my feet
Iím on the floor
Iím good to go
So come on Davey, sing me something that I know
Want to always feel like part of this was mine
Want to fall in love tonight
Here, tonight

Crimson  and clovers, over and over
Our house in the middle of the street
Why did we ever meet?
Starting our rocking little fantasy
Donít tell me donít lets start
Why did we ever part?
Kick start my rock and rolling heart

The Middle

Hey, donít write yourself off yet
Itís only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best
Try everything you can
And donít worry what they tell themselves when youíre away

Hey, you know theyíre all the same
You know youíre doing better on your own so donít buy in
Live right now
Just be yourself
It doesnít matter if thatís good enough for someone else

It just takes some time
Little girl, youíre in the middle of the ride
Everything everything will be just fine
Everything everything will be all right

Do your best do everything you can
Donít you worry what their bitter hearts are going to say

Your House

When youíre on, I swear youíre on
You rip my heart right out, you rip my heart right out
I think the whole room can hear me clear my throat
Rip my heart right out, rip my heart right out

Then out of nowhere you put me right back there
Rip my heart right out, you rip my heart right out
We know what happens when we get to your house
Rip my heart right out, rip my heart right out

I throw away everything Iíve written you
Anything
Just keep my mind off it
Thinking how I had you once
No, I canít forget that
Sometimes I wish I could lose you again

Youíre winning me over with everything you say
You rip my heart right out, rip my heart
When I let you closer
I only want you closer
You rip my heart right out

If you still care at all donít go tell me now
If you love me at all please donít tell me now
If you love me at all
Donít call

Sweetness

If youíre listening
Sing it back
String from you tether unwinds
Up and outwards but only to bind

I was spinning free with a little sweet and simple numbing me

Are you listening?
Sing it back
So tell me what do I need when the words lose their meaning

Stumble until you crawl
Sinking into sweet uncertainty

Are you listening?
If youíre listening
Sing it back
Iím still running away
I wont play your hide and seek game

What a dizzy dance
This sweetness will not be concerned with me

Hear You Hear Me

Thereís no one in town I know
You gave us someplace to go
I never said thank you for that
Thought I might get one more chance

What would you think of me now?
So lucky, so strong, so proud
Never said thank you for that
Now Iíll never have a chance

If you were with me tonight
Iíd sing to you just one more time
A song for a heart so big god wouldnít let it live

May angels lead you in
Hear you me my friends
On sleepless roads the sleepless go
May angels lead you in

If You Donít, Donít

Whatís wrong baby?
Donít they treat you like they should?
Did you take them for it
Or every penny that you could?
We once walked out on the beach and once I almost touched your hand
O, how I dreamed to finally say such things
Then only to pretend

Donít you know Iím thinking?
Driving 405 past midnight
You know I miss you(donít you know that I miss you?)
Ninth and Ash on a Tuesday night

I would write to you from museum mile
Toast to you:
Your whisper
Your smile
Up the stairs at the Weatherford
A ghost each place I hide

I left you waiting
At the least could we be friends?
Should have never started
Ainít that the way it always ends?
On my life Iíll try today
Thereís so much Iíve felt I should say but
Even if your heart would listen I doubt I could explain

So here we are now
A sip of wine 
A sip of water
Someday maybe
Maybe someday weíll be smarter
And Iím sorry that Iím such a mess
I drank all my money could get,
Took everything that you had and never loved you back

If you donít know whyíd you say so?
Would you mean this please if it happens?
If you donít know whyíd you say so?
Wonít you get your story straight?
If you donít know, honey whyíd you just say so?
I need this now more than I ever did
If you donít know,
Well honey,
Then you donít

Get It Faster

I donít care what you do
Iím getting out
No, nothing ever shames me
Donít want a think from you
Iím going out
I donít care if youíre angry

I should have thought things through
Iím holding out but not getting an answer
I want to do right by you
But Iím finding out cheating get it faster

Cautioners

The time I would spend with pictures I would not send
I watched you go from left to right
I followed you all night across my blinds

Making my peace
Making it with distance
Maybe thatís a big mistake
You know Iím thinking of you
I miss you

Youíll change your mind come Monday
And turn your back on me
Take your steps away with hesitance
Take your steps away from me

The Authority Song

Itís how the hustle goes:
See what the jukebox knows
Put my last quarter on
I play ďAuthority SongĒ

The DJ never has it:
J A M C, automatic
If those were Royís headphones
You bet heíd play ďWhat Goes OnĒ

Iím here
That means something doesnít it?
Wont you dance with me a little bit?
You donít notice
I guess the music is too loud

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me, Iím not scared anymore
Say anything you want
Already Iím not scared anymore
Want something else?
Just tell me

Honesty or mystery?
Tell me, Iím not scared anymore
I got no secret purpose
I donít seem obvious, do I?

My Sundown

I see it around me
I see it in everything:
I could be so much more than this

I said my goodbyes
This is my sundown
Iím going to be so much more than this

I need you to show me the way from crazy
I want to be so much more than this

With one hand high youíll show them your progress
Youíll take your time
But no one cares

Lovely time, tinsel shine
Goodbye, Iíll be fine
Good good bye
Good good night
