Looking for something I've never seen
Alone and I'm in between
The place that I'm from and the place that I'm in
A city I never been


I found a friend or should I say a foe
Said there's a few things you should know
We don't want you to see we come and we go
Here today, gone tomorrow


We're only taking turns
Holding this world
It's how it's always been
When you're older you will understand


If I say who I know it just goes to show
You need me less than I need you
But take it from me we don't give sympathy
You can trust me trust nobody


But I said you and me we don't have honesty
The things we don't want to speak
I'll try to get out but I never will
This traffic is perfectly still


We're only taking turns
Holding this world
It's how it's always been
When you're older you will understand

She doesn't look, she doesn't see
Opens up for nobody
Figures out, she figures out


Narrow line, she can't decide
Everything short of suicide
Never hurts, nearly works


Something's scratching its way out
Something you wanna forget about


A part of you that'll never show
You're the only one
That'll ever know


Take it back when it all began
Take your time, would you understand
What it's all about, what it's all about?


Something's scratching its way out
Something you want to forget about
No one expects you to get up
All on your own with no one around


Something's scratching its way out
Something you wanna forget about
No one expects you to get up
All on your own with no one around

If only I knew what I know
I'd make it a point to say so
To everyone that got me here
And everyone that made it


Clear I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
That I would not lose my way
When I was astray


I'm doing the best that I could
Trying my best to be understood
Maybe I'm changing slowly
I'd get out turn around if only I


Knew I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
That I would not lose my way
When I was dead wrong all along


Mine is not a new story
Mine is not a new story
Mine is nothing new but it is for me


So I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
You thought I'd lost my way
When I was dead wrong all along


You said it for my sake
That I would not lose my way
Did I really lose my way
Or are you afraid?

There are certain people
You just keep coming back to
She is right in front of you
You begin to wonder
Could you find a better one
Compared to her, now she's in question


And all at once
The crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing
And the right thing are the same


Maybe you want her
Maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare
To someone not there


Looking for the right one
You line up, the world to find
Where no questions cross your mind
Oh, but she won't keep on waiting
For you without a doubt
Much longer for you to sort it out


And all at once
The crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing
And the right thing are the same


Maybe you want her
Maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare
To someone not there


Maybe you want it

I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth


But that's how it's got to be
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears


And everyone knows I'm in
Over my head, over my head
Eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind, she's on your mind


Let's rearrange
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
To say that we agree and then never change
Soften a bit until we all just get along


But that's disregard
Find another friend and you discard
As you lose the argument in a cable car
Hanging above as the canyon comes between


And everyone knows I'm in
Over my head, over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime

Fake you're full an' you feel tomorrow comin'
An' you gotta do what you can do to get away
With everything you want still get what you need


So you're slowin' down 'cause you've done it before
You look at the floor an' you wonder when it's gonna
Come, on up over your head, you can get some rest


Some trust in love, some trust in hatred
Some trust in fea, some in violence
Some trust in faith an' some trust in fortune
Some trust in God an' some just get away


Oh, swear to God, I'm goin' to get it right
Stay down side 'til I get my fill
Take it all but it's fallin' through
Done it before so maybe a little bit more
Will make it easier, to get on through the door


Some trust in pain an' some trust in pleasure
Some trust in union, some in innocence
Some trust in fear, some trust in fortune
Some trust in everyone, some just get away

The how I can't recall
But I'm staring at what once was the wall
Separating east and west
Now, they meet amidst the broad daylight


So, this is where you are
And this is where I am
Somewhere between unsure
And a hundred


It's hard I must confess
I'm banking on the rest to clear away
'Cause we have spoken everything
Everything short of I love you


You right where you are
From right where I am
Somewhere between unsure
And a hundred


Somewhere between unsure
And a hundred


And who's to say it's wrong?
And who's to say that it's not right
Where we should be for now?


So, this is where you are
And this is where I am
So, this is where you are
And this is where I've been
And this is where I've been


Somewhere between unsure
And a hundred

You swear you recall, nothing at all
That could make you come back down
You made up your mind to leave it all behind
Now you're forced to fight it out


You fall away from your past
But it's following you, now
You fall away from your past
It's following you


You left something undone, it's now your rerun
It's the one, you can't erase
You should have made it right, so you wouldn't have to fight
To put a smile back on your face


You fall away from your past
But it's following you
You fall away from your past
It's following you, now


You fall away
You fall away


Something, I've done that I can't outrun
Something, I've done that I can't outrun
Maybe you should wait, maybe you should run
But there's something you've said that can't be undone


And you fall away from your past
It's following you

Not that you're the one
Not to say I'm right
Not to say today
And not to say a thing tonight


But suffice it to say
We're leaving things unsaid
We sing ourselves to sleep
Watching the day lie down instead


And we are leaving some things unsaid
And we are breathing deeper instead


We're both pretty sure
Neither one can tell
We seem difficult
What we got is hard as hell


A hundred thousand words
Could not quite explain
So I walk you to your car
And we can talk it out in the rain


And we are leaving some things unsaid
And we are breathing deeper instead
And we are leaving some things unsaid


I can sing myself to sleep no more


Not that you're the one
Not to say I'm right
Not to say today
And not to say a thing tonight

Figure since I'm so far gone, oceans away
I can lay my saber down today
I miss the words, I love the words you did not say
I miss the kiss you never, never gave away


There goes the sun, oceans away
And days die young when you're gone and you're gone
There goes the sun, oceans away
And leaves the day for someone else


Honestly, I thought that we could make it all the way
Barefoot on beaches, dancing against the gray
But stone by stone, the castle crumbled to the ground
I stood and stared as you started to fall into the waves


There goes the sun, oceans away
And days die young when you're gone and you're gone
There goes the sun, oceans away
And leaves the day for someone else


Here's to the man of your dreams


Take it all in a box
And make my way down to the shore
Throw it in and begin to leave it to the waves

The city hall in my mind, met last night
Rumors of reelection started to fly


It's my funeral today, my funeral today
I laid it down, underneath the sound
It's my principle concern, my principle concern
Is what you say but I wanted it this way
'Cause I'm throwin' down without a fight


You're more than welcome to look around
Consult your checklist, go underground
I'll claim a stake, here inside the frame
But I'm going under another way


I won't return after today so I'm at liberty
To say what's on my mind and it some I like
You can't watch me anymore, you can't make me like before
When I was yours when all I wanted was the door
So I'm throwin' down without a fight


You're more than welcome to look around
Consult your checklist go underground
I'll claim a stake, here inside the frame
But I'm going under another way

I do it on a whim, it's right without reason
Whatever comes to mind I'll pull it from thin air
I've learned to improvise to fill my time
I don't want to live this life
No, I don't want to live this life without reason


Never want to live without it, never want to live
I don't want to live without reason
Never want to live without it, never want to live
I don't want to live without reason


I do it on a whim, with no motivation
Following this line and I don't know why
But I've learned to capture time it's my redirection
I don't want to live this life
No, I don't want to live this life without reason


Never want to live without it, never want to live
I don't want to live without reason
Never want to live without it, never want to live
I don't want to live without reason


You want to work to spend to show
You want to talk to smile to feel

As the spring in its bloom, the summer stars and the moon
Come and dance with me my love and we will be one


We go together, I promise forever, everyday together, I live with you
We go together, I promise forever, everyday together, I live with you


As the leafs and the trees, the oceans celebrate you and me
We will live to see many days, and we'll dream, we'll dream


We go together, I promise forever, everyday together, I live with you
Go together, I promise forever, everyday together, I live with you

Happiness was just outside my window
I thought it'd crash blowing eighty miles an hour
But happiness is a little more like knocking
On your door, you just let it in


Happiness feels a lot like sorrow
Let it be, you can't make it come or go
But you are gone, not for good but for now
And gone for now feels a lot like gone for good


Happiness is a firecracker sitting on my headboard
Happiness was never mine to hold
Careful child, light the fuse and get away
'Cause happiness throws a shower of sparks


Happiness damn near destroys you
Breaks your faith to pieces on the floor
So you tell yourself, that's enough for now
But happiness has a violent roar


Happiness, it's like the old man told me
Look for it and you'll never find it all
But let it go, live your life and leave it
Then one day you'll wake up and she'll be home

I don't know you
But I know what you did to her
She told me and
I happen to believe her too


They will be three steps behind
You will not know what's got you
Oh, so you're sorry now
All is not well, it's not ended


Hold your breath 'til it's over
There's something left underwater


You've been quiet
There are things that you do not speak of
But if you stay gone
A little longer, your keys won't work


'Cause I will be two steps behind
You will not know what's got you
Oh, so you're sorry now
All is not well, it's not ended


Hold your breath 'til it's over
There's something left underwater
Hold your breath 'til it's over
There's something left underwater


Hold your breath 'til it's over
There's something left underwater
Hold your breath 'til it's over
There's something left underwater

Don't talk, don't say a thing
'Cause your eyes, they tell me more than your words
Don't go, don't leave me now
'Cause they say the best way out is through


And I am short on words
Knowing what's occurred
She begins to leave because of me


Her bag is now much heavier
I wish that I could carry her
But this is our ungodly hour


I know you're leaving now
'Cause I held on to my way tightly
Stay still until you know
Tomorrow finds the best way out is through


And I am short on words
Knowing what's occurred
She begins to leave because of me


Her bag is now much heavier
I wish that I could carry her
But this is our ungodly hour
Ungodly hour, ungodly hour


And I am short on words
Knowing what's occurred
She begins to leave because of me


Her bag is now much heavier

The daughter's father watches, quietly we assume
He's not longer with us but he left this dusty room
In your name and it's an honor, it's a shame but it's your honor
Take it on your shoulder 'til you can find another


That's enough for now, he should've never left you broken
He should've held you, things your father never could do
That's enough for now, he would've never left you broken
He would've held you, things your father never told you


The century before you never could turn twenty one
Years and years he waited, just watching for a son
For someone to go ahead and take the name he said
Years and years he waited and a daughter came instead


But that's enough for now, he should've never left you broken
He should've held you, things your father never could do
That's enough for now, he would've never left you broken
He would've held you, things your father never told you

Trying not to lose my head
But I have never been this scared before
Tell you what I'll do instead
Lay my body down on the floor
To forget what I've done
Silhouette 'til the good lord come


All we know is distance
We're close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one


Trying not to lose your own
Boxing up everything, you've got
All you ever knew of home
You're scared, scared to see
Your mother there in the door
You wonder where did the years go


All we know is distance
We're close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one


But this is how the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference?
I know you hate this one


The violins make no sound
And I begin to feel the ground


All we know is distance

Some things we don't talk about
Rather do without and just hold the smile
Falling in and out of love
Ashamed and proud of, together all the while


You can never say never
While we don't know when
But time and time again
Younger now than we were before


Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go


Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go


Picture, you're the queen of everything
Far as the eye can see under your command
I will be your guardian when all is crumbling
I'll steady your hand


You can never say never
While we don't know when
But time, time and time again
Younger now than we were before


Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go


Don't let me go
Don't let me go
Don't let me go


We're pulling apart and coming

I see you there, don't know where you come from
Unaware of a stare from someone
Don't appear to care that I saw you and I want you


What's your name? 'Cause I have to know it
You let me in and begin to show it
We're terrified 'cause we're heading
Straight for it, might get it


You been the song playing on the background
All along but you're turning up now
And everyone is rising to meet you, to greet you


Turn around and you're walking toward me
I'm breaking down and you're breathing slowly
You say the word and I will be your man, your man


Say when and my own two hands
Will comfort you tonight, tonight
Say when and my own two arms
Will carry you tonight, tonight


We're coming close and then even closer
We bring it in but we go no further
We're separate, two ghosts
In one mirror, no nearer

I found God on the corner of 1st and Amistad
Where the West was all but won
All alone, smoking his last cigarette
I said, "Where you been?" He said, "Ask anything"


Where were you when everything was falling apart?
All my days were spent by the telephone that never rang
And all I needed was a call that never came
To the corner of 1st and Amistad


Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late, you found me, you found me


But in the end everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one who's ever known
Who I am, who I'm not and who I wanna be
No way to know how long she will be next to me


Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait? Where were you? Where were you?

I've seen this one before
The girl she gets away
Everybody knows it
But no one tries to stop it


'Cause she barely even knows him
But if she could see inside
Everything is quiet as she waits
To tell him who she is


Is this all we get to be absolute?


Quiet but I'm sure there is something here
(Absolute)
Tell me everything 'cause I want to hear
(Absolute)


It's a kiss sits upon on her lips
That waits for planes and battle ships
She wants to be a dancer
And he has got a picture on his wall


And it's a sailor in
A new port every night
Yet man was born to trouble
Like sparks fly upwards innocent


Is this all we get to be absolute?


Quiet but I'm sure there is something here
(Absolute)
Tell me everything 'cause I want to hear

Half way around the world lies the one thing that you want
Buried in the ground, hundreds of miles down
The first thing that arises in your mind when you awake
Is bending you 'til you break, let me hold you now


Baby, close your eyes, don't open 'til the morning light
Baby, don't forget, we haven't lost it all yet


Don't know what you're made of 'til the one thing that you want
Is coming with the dawn and suddenly changes
Monday syndicate meets everyone the same
All we've lost to the flame, listen to me now


Baby, close your eyes, don't open 'til the morning light
Don't ever forget, we haven't lost it all yet
All we know for sure is all that we are fighting for
Baby, don't forget, we haven't lost it all yet


Someday when this is over
We may still have no answer
For now it's when I hold her
We are closer, we are closer
We are closer, we are closer

Twenty years, it's breaking you down
Now that you understand, there's no one around
Take a breath, just take a seat
You're falling apart and tearing at the seams


Heaven forbid you end up alone
You don't know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow
You'll be alright


It's on your face, is it on your mind
Would you care to build a house of your own
How much longer, how long can you wait
It's like you wanted to go and give yourself away


Heaven forbid you end up alone
And you don't know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow
You'll be alright


Heaven forbid you end up alone
And don't know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow
You'll be alright


It feels good, it feel good
It feels good, it feel good


Heaven forbid you end up alone
You don't know why
Hold on tight, wait for tomorrow

Step one, you say, “We need to talk”
He walks, you say, “Sit down, it's just a talk”
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through


Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came


Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life


Let him know that you know best
‘Cause after all, you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence


Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And pray to God he hears you


And where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
