heartbreak from miles away i've hurt a woman not just a child and i'm the older that I've ever been but I've never felt this young before so would you show me the way to the door? if it was simple to be a man then I would man up to the fool in me and i'm the bravest that i've ever been but i've never been brave at all so would you show me which way to fall

Backwards 03:30
thinking upside down again still counting on my same best friends i chose to hold this weight instead cause that train won't come if you pretend i'm walking backwards just to find some sort of truth behind the story lines inside this twisting, turning rhyme scheme is a man with all new kinds of time to breathe he found a reckless hideaway when she finds him there they spin away outside the sun is burning cold again heat up the winter and come back home again cause this evenings paradise sinks through my bones rich from the waters and now my need has grown i'm thinking upside down again still drinking with my same best friends i chose to walk this way instead cause that train won't come if you pretend

i want to figure you out i want to learn all your little habits i want to feel you breathe i want to give you the best of me we can break every bone we can run away from the sirens if we're going down at least we're going down in two listen to me i have no lion's heart are you listening? i'm not lying when i said i could die with you i want to give you back just to see how bad i'll miss you then i will catch your breath and i'll give you the rest of me i want to watch you move as you dance through speeding traffic we can break every bone we can run away from our past i want to hold you through the madness i want to whisper while you scream i want to hold you through the madness i want to whisper while you scream listen to me i've gotta head full of gasoline listen to me I leave the snakes to the slithering are you listening? i never said i had a lion's heart listen to me i'm not lying when i said i could die with you

so late to make the pledge so i just wait and play around inside the place where all my bones we're grown lifting a household made of stone i think inside a waiting room i hate the smell of hospitals but it takes doctors to arrange a cure lifting a dead man full of stone her face brings light and color to the days when i just can't contain the weight she makes me feel at home shocking a heart that's made of stone awake the streets alive again it's time to blend with the parade this youth we will sing side by side and dance along until we're bones you know there's no control tonight it's true this will come back to you just float along the tides again then fall to sand just like some stones stand up and scream your lungs away it's time to blend with the parade this youth we will sing side by side and dance along until we're bones

Waiting 02:10
you know that I've been waiting for this you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life you know that I've been waiting for this you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life lose the T-shirt hit the TV tell a white lie that was easy turn the lights off well shoot cause everyone looks better in their birthday suit who's using who? who's using me? am I losing you? should I leave it be? turn the lights on well shoot cause everyone looks better in their birthday suit you know that I've been waiting for this you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life you know that I've been waiting for this you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life you scratch my back I'll scratch yours you bite my lip off I'll bite yours turn the lights off well shoot cause everyone looks better in their birthday suit you know that I've been waiting for this you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life you know that I've been waiting for this you know that I've been waiting for this my whole life

Fireworks 02:14
here comes the waterworks drowning our goodbyes both feet on the concrete with my hands up her shirt in my head i hear fireworks replacing the tears both eyes on the mountain fit into an hourglass it was raining now it's pouring but i'm not ready to go concrete thoughts fill your face for the day as the race the clock it's her you wish would stay we're smiling steady feeling happy for the day while you race the suns drop it's her you wish would stay it was raining now it's pouring but i'm not ready to go so bring on the weather man bring on the thunder and lightning we we're dancing in the rain around two in the morning and as you race the clock it's her you wish would stay it's her you wish would stay it's her you wish would stay it's her you wish would stay

Fall In 02:48
do you know what you got yourself in? what a way, what a way, what a way to fall in there you were, there you went when i opened my eyes it's getting hard to move and even harder to just stand still on the other side of this cigarette i'll be out of breath, i'll be out of breath on the other side of this cigarette i'll be out of breath, i'll be out of breath should i drown in love? or should i drown in wine? either way, either way i've got to slip a couple times there it is, there it was those bloodshot eyes it's getting hard to stand and even harder to just sit still on the other side of this cigarette there's a ripped up writer writing his worth on the other side of this cigarette there's a face in the crowd making mama proud on the other side of this cigarette there's a reckless boy on a Friday night on the other side of this cigarette there's a silent girl she's looking for me

I have every little thing that A man could want but I don't want it I have every little thing that A man could want but I don't want it tell me why tell me why tell me why tell me why I've gotta get clean I have a drug of choice that I could follow till the end of the world I have a drug of choice that I could follow till the end of me tell me why tell me why tell me why tell me why I've gotta get clean I swear there's nothing under my skin but pills, pills, ashes, and whiskey I swear there's nothing under my skin but pills, pills, ashes, and whiskey I kept my hope at the bottom of my pocket like a penny I would never use I kept my hope at the bottom of my pocket like a penny I would never use so god grant me the serenity to accept the things that I can't change god, give me all the courage to change the things i know I can please god would you give me the wisdom to know the difference please god would you give me the wisdom to know the difference I have some song and dance that I could follow till the end of the world I have some song and dance that I could follow till the end of me now I know now I know now I know now I know why I will get clean now I know now I know now I know now I know why I will get clean

It's True 03:33
i'm going outside leaving inside lock the door and throw away the key just you and me new views outside the moon has fallen the sun is rising burning all the rotten memories clean it's true that me and you will do we'll do anything to feel alive forever we'll do anything to feel the need to breathe leave everything and let your mind just wander then you might find a place you'd rather be it's pushing boundaries we find astounding and only you and me know what comes next we'll lay around in bed all day if thinking through things would lead to true things we'd probably think this through a whole lot more we'll lose this bond in time it's true and even we knew that this would end soon but we just laughed it off that's so like us to avoid all the stop signs and anything in the way you know it's true we'll do anything to feel this way forever we'll do anything to keep this need to breathe leave everything and let your mind just wander then you might find a place you'd rather be
