American Heart

Well I saw you last night, at the end of the bar

You were standing with him, and it didn’t look good

I was killing myself, with old Bushmills

Beer and wine, and a little bit of guilt

Who you gonna blame now

Who you gonna blame now

For your American Heart

Well I remember those days, when I didn’t think straight

I could learn how to change, and maybe I could stay

Instead of spending my nights, in the smoking room

With a drinking glove, always down in the groove

But who you gonna blame now

Who you gonna blame now

For your American Heart

Now the memories fade

Like they always do

And it doesn’t seem right

No it doesn’t ring true

Who you gonna blame now

Who you gonna blame now

For your American Heart

Brentwood Blvd

Jump up and let the world roll under our feet

Jump up, Converse shoes torn and tattered on an old street

Jump up and remember books stacked on cinderblocks and strobe lights

Jump down and keep your flat feet down on the Brentwood Boulevard

“We could lay beneath the skies and watch the clouds,” she says

She knows the words but they’re words that she won’t tell

We could lay beneath the skies and watch the clouds

She says she knows the words but they’re words that she won’t tell

Remember dim lights, shag wool carpet and wretched DJ’s

Remember dim lights and tiki drinks sting from the night before

Oh no, CEO let her go, she’s not your restaurant

Oh no, CEO let her go, let her go

“We could lay beneath the skies and watch the clouds,” she says

She knows the words but they’re words that she won’t tell

We could lay beneath the skies and watch the clouds

She says she knows the words but they’re words that she won’t tell

I’m keeping all of this behind me

Because everyone loves you

And the clouds they do too

Everyone loves you

And I do too

Carolina

She says she loves you but she don’t

She don’t know what love is

She says she wants you but she won’t

You know that’s just the way that she is

She says she loves you, she ain’t right

She says she’s out for just one night

But you know that’s just the way she is

You know that’s just the way she is

Something’s got to change Caroline

Something’s got to change, you’ll feel fine

Carolina, Caroline

It’s late she calls you on the phone

She’s drunk and fun and not alone

But you know that’s just the way she is

Hang up the phone and run away

But nothing hasn’t changed Caroline

And nothing’s gonna change Carolina

Carolina, Caroline

You say you hate my New York state of mind

You say that’s why you’re left behind

Well bright is fine, but lights are blind and so am I

So have another wine

The rocks and sand you call the road

The wicked smile that you can’t hold

Pretend everything’s fine

I’m not fine

Caroline

She says she loves you but she don’t

She don’t know what love is

Carolina, Carolina

Something’s got to change

Carolina, Carolina

 

Clovis - Stay With Me Tonight

Will you stay with me tonight, in a hotel in Clovis

Will you lie with me awhile, until I get over it.

It's coming more then I can take, taking pressure off this faith.

And tell me it's all in my mind, and we should leave it all behind.

If you stay with me tonight, in a hotel in Clovis

Will you lie with me awhile, until I get over us.

It's coming more then I can take, lets lock it down for safety's sake.

And tell me it's all in my mind, as we lay both side by side

If you stay with me tonight

You know I'll wait for you, by a cold bent window pane.

I said I'll wait for you, with that same look on my face

You tell me its all in my mind, and we should leave it all behind

If you stay with me tonight, in a hotel in Clovis

Will you lie with me awhile, until I get over it

And tell me its all in my mind, and we should leave it all behind

If you stay with me tonight, in a hotel in Clovis

Will you lie with me awhile, in a hotel in Clovis

Will you stay with me?

Hymn (I Will)

Who’s going to be there when you’re all alone?

Who’s going to be there waiting by the phone?

I will

Who’s going to tell you it will be alright?

Who’s going to be there to say goodnight?

I will

And when you’re lost and down, I’ll be around

I will

Who’s going to listen to all your lies?

Who’s going to ride right beside your life?

I will

Who’s going to tell you that the past is gone?

Who’s going to tell you that you’re still the one?

I will

And when you’re lost and down, you know I’ll be around

I will

Now everywhere this river rolls, it keeps on rolling back to you

And every time you turn around, I’ll be turning round

You keep me turning round

It keeps me turning round

I’ll be turning

I will

Who’s going to love you till the end of time?

Who’s going to be there at the end of every night?

I will

And when you’re lost and down, you know I’ll be around

I will

For You

L Train

Looking out a frozen window

And I watch the land ‘scape by slow

Gliding down a southbound metro

City light show in the front row of another morning rush

I’m getting older, I’m getting colder

And when I fall, I fall to you

And when I crawl, I crawl to you

And when I fall again, any place I go will feel no different

So take an Ltrain on a rainy day to a far away

To take an airplane on a sunny day to a far away

Looking out a frozen window

Traffic watchers like sunflowers for van Gogh

Blinding land-yacht silver airstream

In a daydream, clouds of benzene steering through the morning rush

I’m getting older, I’m getting colder

And when I fall, I fall to you

And when I crawl, I crawl to you

And when I want to go, can you find a way to get that ticket?

To take an Ltrain on a rainy day to a far away

To take an airplane to a sunny day on a far away

I’m getting old, I’m getting colder,

And when I fall, I fall to you

And when I crawl, I crawl to you

And when you want to go, save a place you know we’ll find a ticket

To take an Ltrain on a rainy day to a far away

Take an airplane on a sunny day to a far away

 

November Ocean

She’s so in love

Her dress is blowing in the sunshine

And I’m so turned on

I wish I could reach out to touch her

Oh my God, it’s been so long

And she’s so afraid

Everything I do scares her

And she ran away

Little girl I know I miss you

Oh my God, it’s been so long

My girlfriend, you’re still my star

In a picture frame on my heart

In a picture frame on my soul

In a picture frame on my life

She’s so afraid

Everything I do scares her

Sadie Hawkins Day

Today, early morning, afternoon way

Not that different than a Sunday, early with you

Some days, I find shade that makes me feel fine.

I walk the yard around the grapevines

Early morning, after noontime

And I wish it could be the way

It was with you in May

And everyone was high

On Sadie Hawkins Day

Tomorrow or today

It’s just another day with you

And I can’t seem to get back through

Tuesday’s shaking off another Friday

Sometimes, you know, it get’s that way rolling with you

And some days all it takes to make me feel fine

Is to jam LOVE songs under the grapevines

Early morning on the south side

And I wish it could be the way

It was with you in May

And everyone was high

On Sadie Hawkins Day

Tomorrow or today

It’s just another day with you

And I can’t seem to get back through

Well I wish it could be the way

It was with you in May

And everyone was high

Tomorrow or today

It’s just another day with you

And I can’t seem to get back through

Too Little Too Late

You’d like me much better now

I’m less argumentative

You would be amazed

I think I found my sedative

And you flaunt it because you’re haunted

And you’re haunted because you flaunt it

It’s too little too late

When I find that someday comes

It’s too little too late

When I shed my second skin

It’s too little too late

When I find that someday comes

I’m too little too late

When I find my heart is gone

Over you

I’m looking pretty good these days

Heads turn in my direction

You wouldn't be able to resist

‘cause I’m starving for affection

And you flaunt it because you’re haunted

Because you’re haunted, because you flaunt it

It’s too little too late

When I find that someday comes

It’s too little too late

When I shed my second skin

It’s too little too late

When I find that someday comes

I’m too little too late

When I find my heart is gone

Over you

 

YSKB

You should know better by now, don’t go falling in love

You should know better than that, don’t go falling in love

You should know better by now, don’t go falling in love

You should know better than that, don’t go falling in love

Well the sky will fall, if you let it

And the doors will close, if they must

But if you can’t see her soul, when you look into her eyes

Let it fall, let it close

You should know better by now, don’t go falling in love

You should know better than that, don’t go falling in love

You should know better by now, don’t go falling in love

You should know better than that, don’t go falling in love

Well the heart will lay, where it wants too

And your mind will wander, till it hurts

But if she can’t see your soul, when she looks into your eyes

Let it lay, let it hurt

You should know better by now, don’t go falling in love

You should know better than that, don’t go falling in love

You should know better by now, don’t go falling in love

You should know better than that, don’t go falling in love

Let it fall, let it close, let it lay, let it hurt
