GETTING OLDER

 

Getting older,

A little bolder with the time,

(Time),

Nothing's safe now,

Oh how the rug's been pulled right out,

(Out),

I'm not who I was,

Don't get my actions just the cause,

(Cause)

 

Is it like this for everyone else?

 

If life's gonna change me will I get better?

Or do I keep on till I burn down?

Will I be searching for forever,

Just to find some steady ground?

How big is this wave?

How long does it take?

To ride out,

Can I get what I want without wasting away?

Am I losing myself with every day?

 

Grey hairs growing,

The bottle's showing me to bed,

(Bed),

Dark humour was a defence,

In past tense are some friends alive,

(Alive)

 

Is it like this for everyone else?

 

If life's gonna change me will I get better?

Or do I keep on till I burn down?

Will I be searching for forever,

Just to find me some steady ground?

How big is this wave?

How long does it take?

To ride out,

Can I get what I want without wasting away?

Am I losing myself with every day?

 

All I need is time,

Time to get you off of my mind,

All I need is time,

Time to forget you were mine

HOW MUCH LONGER

 

This love,

Has me second guessing,

Thought I could enjoy the change of pace,

But I can't stop stressing,

And it's not about you baby,

And there's nothing you can do,

Have some peace of mind and know at the back of mine,

I'm waiting for you to leave me

 

It won't stop,

The doubt inside my head,

How much longer do I have before you get tired of me?

 

This life,

Took me for some joyrides,

Always leaves me standing by the road,

With no remorse in her eyes,

And it's just how things go for me,

Build me up to let me down,

They feign interest until they win my trust,

And then they break my heart so gently

 

It won't stop,

The doubt inside my head,

How much longer do I have before you get tired of me?

 

You could go and end it all now,

Just prove me right just one more time,

'Cause I can't get no...

 

For this love, love, love,

I'm not man enough, no, no

Been fooled twice and the shame's with me,

Now fool me three times baby

 

It won't stop,

The doubt inside my head,

How much longer do I have before you get tired of me?

It won't stop,

The doubt inside my head,

How much longer do I have before you get tired of me?

Before you get tired of me,

Before you get tired of me,

How much longer do I have before you get tired of me?

NO MONEY

 

A bit insecure, maybe more and I sleep on the floor,

'Cause nobody likes you when you're 23,

I'll sleep for the day so I can drink the whole night away,

And everyone knows that I've got no money

 

Denim on denim and pride? Just forget him,

Nobody's worth impressing anyway,

'Cause I got a girl but I don't know what she sees in me,

Take one good look and tell me why'd you stay,

It can't be what I do so it must be what I say,

Am I doing it now am I making you want me?

 

So tell me,

Oh baby what you see in me,

Has love been all you want it to be?

When your world comes crashing down,

Just say the word and I'll be around,

You think it’s funny I’ve got no money

 

Pessimistic but being hopeless in love's my shtick,

If I don't have that then I've got nothing,

So if we're being real I'll never be real with you,

Isn't that what men are supposed to do?

I don't know what I'm supposed to do,

All I know is you want me too

 

So tell me,

Oh baby what you see in me,

Has love been all you want it to be?

When your world comes crashing down,

Just say the word and I'll be around,

You think it's funny I've got no money

 

If there was someone else out there for you,

If there was someone else for me,

Woah can you accept you may never find them,

Can you let go of possibility?

If there was someone else out there for you,

If there was someone else for me,

I don't care what may be out there waiting,

I don't care to wait and see

 

So tell me,

Oh baby what you see in me,

Has love been all you want it to be?

When your world comes crashing down,

Just say the word and I'll be around,

You think it's funny I've got no money

LOST

 

There was a time,

Not so far behind,

I thought love was the enemy,

Standing right in front of me,

I bought the lies the silver screen sold,

She's out there waiting for me to hold,

And I would find her someday

 

Then why did it feel,

Like I was dying,

Always flying,

Lonely, slowly drifting far away?

 

Where did I go to get myself found?

When I was so lost,

I gotta know how to keep you around,

So I don't get lost,

So I don't get lost

 

I was barely a man,

Been through hell and again,

I thought love was my saviour,

While I was its prisoner,

I kept torturing myself,

'Till I saw her with somebody else,

And I'd done all that I could

 

I drifted far away,

‘Till I crashed here,

And you were near,

Waiting for me like I'd been told you would

 

Where did I go to get myself found?

When I was so lost,

I gotta know how to keep you around,

So I don't get lost,

So I don't get lost

BACK TO BLUE

 

Hit restart,

Crank up the music in the car,

So far it's been five days,

And baby I miss your face,

And the way my life was,

With you and all of our flaws,

Because we're just two kids,

Who had to finally admit,

This was it

 

But oh what I'd do just to hold you

 

I’m not getting off so easy,

The time we had and shared was it really enough?

I was so in love,

That I don't wanna see someone take my place,

It kills me but I rather see your smiling face,

Come on and say you need me,

Come on and say you need me

 

Back to blue,

Who I was before I had you,

It's true I hate myself,

The man I am without someone else,

And it felt like forever,

Our whole lives that we'd spend together,

And I never saw the change,

How you couldn't look at me the same,

I'm to blame

 

I refused to see it wasn't meant to be

 

You’re not getting off so easy,

The time we had and shared was it really enough?

I was so in love,

That I don't wanna see someone take my place,

It kills me but I rather see your smiling face,

Come on and say you need me,

Come on and say you need me

 

If there’s things you’re not saying,

Is silence worth hearts breaking tonight?

 

We’re not getting off so easy,

The time we had and shared was it really enough?

I was so in love,

That I don't wanna see someone take my place,

It kills me but I rather see your smiling face,

Come on and say you need me,

Come on and say you need me

 

Count the years to ten,

What will I be to you then,

Just a friend?

YOUR NEW MAN IS A WOMAN

 

I said do something to surprise me,

She said, “I'm leaving you for a lady,

Did I mention she was married,

And she was born in the eighties”

 

Black Pontiacs give me a heart attack,

I put you on a pedestal I'm taking back,

Can't pick up the slack for what you lack,

If all my love was wasted all yours meant jack

 

Your new man is a woman and I just laugh,

'Cause I don't even have to ask what I didn't have,

By the third time that you left I was a new man,

No more shitting on the floor at my friend's

 

She said do something to surprise me,

I said, “I need you for nothing,

'Cause you never even fucked me,

And that's all I wanted this to be”

 

One week removed I'm at a girl's place,

Taking off her clothes and she's keeping pace,

That's when I called her by your name,

She didn't seem to mind and I wasn't ashamed

 

Your new man is a woman and I just laugh,

'Cause I don't even have to ask what I didn't have,

By the third time that you left I was a new man,

No more shitting on the floor at my friend's

 

You know I'm fucking with you,

With what I said in verse two,

But it doesn't matter what I say,

Nobody listens to me anyways

 

Your new man is a woman and I just laugh,

'Cause I don't even have to ask what I didn't have,

By the third time that you left I was a new man,

No more shitting on the floor at my friend's

SAYANORA SALLY

 

When I go to sleep I don't wanna wake up,

Let this nightmare end it just seems too fucked up to be real,

Too fucked up to feel,

I drive home at night and know you won't be there,

Through traffic so slow everyone can see I'm crying about you,

It's all I ever do

 

So now do I just wait?

For you to come along and say,

“I just made a mistake”

 

All you've left me is a broken heart to mend,

Don't tell me that you want to be friends,

Don't tell me that it's hard to pretend,

Don't you try to come back again

 

All that's left to do is drink myself to death,

Stand on my balcony and throw myself over the edge,

Hopefully land on my head,

I'm not gonna lie my life's kind of easy,

These kind of things well they just don't happen to me,

I'm softer than the breeze

 

So now I bid my time,

Till you come and make you mine,

And say “I've made up my mind”

 

All you've left me is a broken heart to mend,

Don't tell me that you want to be friends,

Don't tell me that it's hard to pretend,

Don't you try to come back again

 

All that I need is a way to be with you,

Glad you were my first wish you could be my last too,

Someday we'd meet again sitting on a park bench,

And you,

You'd finally say,

“No more mistakes”

 

But all you've left me is a broken heart to mend,

Don't tell me that you want to be friends,

Don't tell me that it's hard to pretend,

Don't you try to come back again,

Don't you try to come back again,

Don't you try to come back again

SEXUAL POLITICS

 

A breeze,

The sunlight on my hair,

The feeling of you not being there,

Standing at the front of the line at the back of my mind,

Believe,

It's not that I don't care,

That was your cross to bear,

If you'd ever bothered to look inside I'm sure you will find

 

No one will ever know you like I do,

'Cause I'm the place you were hiding,

And the rare times that you chose to tell the truth,

I always knew you'd been lying

 

Where did love leave us now,

You're just part of the crowd,

Noise in the party sound,

Like any girl in town,

I wanna confront this,

Worthless relationshit,

'Cause all I can think about now is…

 

Why did we ruin this,

With sexual politics?

Now I can't stand when you're around,

Was love worth the danger?

You've become a stranger,

What was lost cannot be found

 

My dear,

You made it fucking weird,

The way you slowly disappeared,

We wouldn’t be together we’re made for better weather,                       

We burnt this bridge like a pair of arsonists,

And we’re still stuck in the middle of it

 

Where did love leave us now,

You're just part of the crowd,

Noise in the party sound,

Like any girl in town,

I wanna confront this,

Worthless relationshit,

'Cause all I can think about now...

 

Why did we ruin this,

With sexual politics?

Now I can't stand when you're around,

Was love worth the danger?

You've become a stranger,

What was lost cannot be found

 

Is this how it ends for us babe?

A text to throw a year away,

Telling me everything has changed,

And your love has gone astray,

Good to know I was right all along,

You’d be happier with anyone,

Not your fault I'm so unloveable,

And ready for the fall,

Am I just a punchline to you now?

A joke former friends laugh about,

Am I someone you could do without,

Is there a sliver of doubt?

What happens now our love's hit the ground?

Not like I won't see you around,

Tell people what they want to hear,

But I'm not lying dear

 

Why did we ruin this,

With sexual politics?

Now I can't stand when you're around,

Was love worth the danger?

You've become a stranger,

What was lost cannot be found

LIKE THEY DO IN THE MOVIES

 

A mile off the coast is where you'll find me,

A stubborn boy pushing a raft into the sea,

For every wave there's a thousand times you tried,

To make me feel what was real for you inside,

I can't make you laugh and I can barely sing,

I offer you and the rest of the world nothing,

That's all I'll ever get from you now,

I pushed you away till you finally walked out

 

But it’s all the same,

There’s no one to blame

 

All I ever wanted was a love like the movies,

You kissed me in the parking lot of the school where I got bullied,

And I swear for awhile there I was the only thing you could see,

Now it's your turn with somebody else,

Hope they make you feel what I felt

 

You saved me and that’s the hardest thing,

You killed my belief in the fairy tale ending,

What’s the point in something that never lasts,

Quick as love grows it burns out just as fast

 

It’s so strange to me now,

What I’m living without

 

All I ever wanted was a love like the movies,

You kissed me in the parking lot of the school where I got bullied,

And I swear for awhile there I was the only thing you could see,

Now it's your turn with somebody else,

Hope they make you feel what I felt

 

All I ever wanted was a love like the movies,

You kissed me in the parking lot of the school where I got bullied,

And I swear for awhile there that I had made you happy,

Now you'll try with anyone but me,

Hope you love like they do in the movies

 

After all this time I can’t bother to pretend,

I don’t miss love but I miss you my friend

OVER YOU

 

Let me take you through,

The tale of how I got over you,

Drowned out the thoughts of two,

When I started drinking at noon,

Then I fell in the arms of friends,

The ones who've time and time again,

Watched me made to look like a fool,

By some girls who look just like you,

You know I'd do anything for kicks,

But this really wasn't funny, was it?

 

That's when I saw her,

Standing by the printer,

I knew,

In a Bowie t-shirt,

Glasses and denim skirt,

I knew,

This is literally nothing,

She's just a look and a feeling,

But that's when I knew,

I was finally over you

 

Here's what I had to do,

To forget what you put me through,

Grew my hair out way too long,

And died the whole thing cherry blonde,

Then I went through a stoner phase,

I watched TV nonstop for days,

Started to dress up like a freak,

When I wasn't stuck between my sheets,

When I can outdrink everyone else,

Why does it seem like a cry for help?

 

That's when I saw her,

Standing by the printer,

I knew,

In a Bowie t-shirt,

Glasses and denim skirt,

I knew,

This is literally nothing,

She's just a look and a feeling,

But that's when I knew,

I was finally over you

 

Thought this love was my last lark,

And it was time to write a new part for me,

Take myself seriously

That's when I saw her,

Standing by the printer,

I knew,

In a Bowie t-shirt,

Glasses and denim skirt,

I knew,

This is literally nothing,

She's just a look and a feeling,

But that's when I knew,

I was finally over you
