she waits, tonight for me to decide where we're going she hates not knowing i'm just scared to think that my intentions are weak she's something steady i'm just not ready probably, someday i'll regret letting her go miss that feeling of being needed but i don't wanna wonder if there's someone just for me i wanna know i've always been a bit short-sighted live for tomorrow i give and i borrow so let me care for your heart tonight if you don't mind just need it for a while probably, someday i'll regret letting her go miss that feeling of being needed you'll think i gave you all of my heart i'm just being patient while i'm waiting for her well things happen 'cause they're supposed to but how do we know what we're supposed to do all i've ever done is follow my heart now it's our better judgement that's tearing it apart probably, someday, i'll regret letting her go miss that feeling of being needed but hopefully i'll find what i've got in mind or else i'll be looking back on everything i've left behind

she said, "open your eyes, there's no use trying to hide." "but the light's so bright," i said then she lays her head back on my chest the morning air is calm and her skin is soft and warm it's almost impossible to get out of bed and let her go she moves closer and my heart beats faster she looks at me like i'm all that matters and now i'm lost in it and i'm forgetting what i was doing here in the first place she thinks she knows me so well but after all this she still can't tell what's going on inside of my head if i could speak i would have said this can't last things wont stay the same forever our time has past but we're blinded by each other she said, "open your eyes, there's no use trying to hide." but the view is so blinding i need to shut her out so i can think she moves closer and my heart beats faster she looks at me like i'm all that matters and now i'm lost in it and i'm forgetting what i was doing here in the first place this can't last things won't stay the same forever our time has past but we're blinded by each other she moves closer and my heart beats faster she looks at me like i'm all that matters and now i'm lost in it and i'm forgetting what i was doing here in the first place she said, "close your eyes, there's no use trying to fight it." so i fall into the night just like last time i tried to say goodbye

i'll commend you on your devotion to the art of the superficial it's your talent burying everything away go on and hide your heart behind a pretty face my heart was somewhere else and my thoughts would always wander it's not that i didn't care you just couldn't quite hold me under but i believe you'll go far you've got everything you need go chase those pretty boys i'll find a girl with some empathy i'll keep my words to myself if you'll stay up on your shelf yeah just keep selling yourself girl, where's your soul, god must've forgot but i can't hate you for what you're not just keep your distance and i'll be alright your picture perfect world was shattered by distraction your power trip was fueled by the search for satisfaction but you're just a little girl and this is all i ever expected i've always had my sights set and you're hardly the perfect target
4.
i called a girl crazy 'cause she never came home but let's be realistic you're a thousand miles away and though it's really hard to say i know that i won't always miss you but i'm a boy and you're a girl and you're bound to destroy my world i guess it's a risk worth taking but let's not think like that, how 'bout you just come back you told me i was stupid 'cause i couldn't decide even though i told you not to wait for me i guess you had it in your head i wasn't better off dead but i'm telling you i don't need rescuing i just want summer to be gone so i can have you in my arms this forbidden thing is really draining but let's not think like that, how 'bout you just come back girl, we've got time to make everything alright and i have faith that these lonely days will lead to something better i told you i was sorry but i couldn't make you blame me you said it was all your fault this feels like those nights when all we had was our eyes to tell each other we were meaningful this wasn't supposed to happen it's an uncontrolled reaction but there's really nothing we can do so let's not think like that, how 'bout you just come back sometimes i get the feeling that your friends just keep me smiling so i'll sing them to sleep but i'm a drop of water and you're my path of least resistance and that's alright by me we could go all night, you know but the birds mean i better go we gotta find some self control but let's not think like that, how 'bout you just come back

you were intent on making a move and i was just biding my time but you're static cling about inexplicable things sometimes you've just got to let go now her face in my wallet won't stop talking politics when all i want for her is to know that certainty kills, it is doubt that fulfills all ways that you wish to grow i'll figure out the whys and the hows don't you worry now and i'll put them down underneath the sound and turn it up too loud you were content with making demands and i was just painting your fate but happy's a season made shorter by reason so don't envy those drawing the lines

So you're a heartbreaker, they say but it seems that these words are just hearsay this just isn't your day but there is good in learning the hard way heartbreaker, i think your fair skin will singe in this heat let your sins breathe your complexion lessens their degree So you've got options, i've heard there's nothing like having love to burn but now it's your turn heartbreaking can be anyone's verb so take your pills life's better fuzzy and surreal put on those heels and find out how falling really feels but maybe you're on to something happiness from ignorance in the way life goes from growing old heartbreaker i hear the nicest things fall on deaf ears so save your tears sentiments will shorten your career

these hands never cease to amaze me they could wield a blade or a woman's body they could steal through your defenses or they could strum to the same ends these hands haven't been anywhere when you think about all the places fingers could be all the things their movements could express all the times they've been washed of blood and regrets each fingertip unique as a face perhaps that's why we think it's our place to feel as though no one's felt before to touch even things we abhor but what's hate if not to the brain hands care less if they're subject to pain they don't make rash decisions under fire or get caught up in needless desire wrapped up in nail and tender flesh these muscles and tendons do their best to keep me alive and well fed serving the cause until death these hands would kill to have a mind of their own that way you would never be alone that way they could always hold you close with mittens they'd be invulnerable these hands never cease to amaze me they could wield a blade or a woman's body they could steal through your defenses or they could strum to the same ends these hands haven't been anywhere when you think about all the places fingers could be all the things their movements could express all the times they've been washed of blood and regrets all the times they've been washed of a mess all the times they've had their hand in regrets all the times they've made good on threats these hands but what's hate if not to the brain hands care less if they're subject to pain they don't make rash decisions under fire get caught up in needless desire these hands would kill to have a mind of their own that way you would never be alone that way they could always hold you close these hands

now i know it's over i know there's nothing i can do but would you think about it for a while for me i know you're leaving i know you've got your reasons but would you think about what's gonna happen please tonight's gonna roll around and you're gonna wonder if what you did was right and where am i? tonight's gonna be the longest night i've ever lived and the most empty i'm hanging on to every word that you don't tell me hoping you'll defy what i know you feel inside you say this hurts you but i don't hear a word you say i'm too busy keeping my insides from exploding on the way back to your house i hit every red light you told me i shouldn't come well maybe you were right but i've got so much to tell you i couldn't possibly sleep if you don't hear me tonight's gonna roll around and you're gonna wonder if what you did was right and where am i? tonight's gonna be the longest night we've ever lived and the most empty if you've got nothing else to say i'll get out of your way

it's just one of these things that i can't understand i've got this cloudy head and these useless hands and you're stuck in a hole in the back of my brain paradoxically cause and relief of my pain there's a red-hot brand of your name at my feet i'm willing to burn i just want you to see that a simple love is all that i need cause i live for the little things you say goodnight, go to sleep 'cause don't you know what the morning means more time to live, to love, to dream i'll see you soon if you'll wait for me it's just one of these things that's not worth the pain you see that i'm parched, you're not willing to rain and i'm stuck in the ground in a mountain of words somewhere you'd settle if you needed a perch there's a canvas dawn that i thought you would like near the foot of my bed but now i'm seeing it right a simple love is all that i need this is a beginning and it's me saying goodnight, go to sleep cause don't you know what the morning means more time to live, to love, to dream i'll see you soon if you'll wait for me goodnight go to sleep i'll sing this song to you eventually the words you speak turn the night air sweet i'll miss you but i know you can't wait for me
