Like Melting

She sewed words in his mind
Drove down I-35
There was such limited time
There is such limited time
October was a lifetime away
I know I didn’t say, but please stay
I know I didn’t say, but don’t go
There’s so much left to unfold

And when we kiss there’s something magic
And I can’t describe it, but I’ll try
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like that

She drew words with her eyes
She bit her lip when she cried
There was never a good time
There just is not a good time
October was a lifetime away
And all of the pictures, they fade
And all of the memories, they go
And everything else gets disposed

But when we kiss there’s something magic
And I can’t deny it, but I’ll try
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like that

And what if you are right
And I am wrong
But what if I am right
And you are wrong

And if we miss, we might miss magic
And I can’t deny that, so I’ll try
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like melting
It’s a lot like that

A Cold Day

Is it a cold day
Enjoy a cold beer
So much for long life
It’s such a long year
Nobody’s out here
Can anyone hear
It’s such a bad day
For such a bad year

And close your eyes tight
And let the clouds clear
It was a nice day
But no one will care
And is there nothing I can do or say
To take the pain away
To make it all go away
To make it all go away

And I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t
And I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t breathe
Anymore
And I won’t, and I won’t, and I won’t, and I won’t,
And I won’t, and I won’t, and I won’t watch you
Throw it all away
Burn it all the way
To the core

Is it a true fear
Adjust the side mirrors
All of my highways
Lead to the heart, dear
And no one’s beating and beating and beating
This blood faster than I could

And I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t
And I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t, and I can’t see
Any more
And I won’t, and I won’t, and I won’t, and I won’t,
And I won’t, and I won’t, and I won’t watch you
Throw it all away
Burn it all the way
To the ground

Is it a cold day
Or just a cold year
So much for long life
There’s nothing left here
There’s nothing left here
There’s nothing left
It’s taking and taking and taking
Until we’re all gone

All for Good

This life is harder
We sit in circles saying nothing
My child’s father
Pictures will never be as good
It flows like water
The color bled all from your face
It rains in summer
Oh God, how it rains

I don’t think I can breathe
Knowing this is all for good
There’s more that’s changed than just
The leaves on the tallest of trees
Come quick, they called
Heartbeat is getting quieter with every step
If when it falls
Will you say you knew

I don’t think I can breathe
I’m hearing your voice in my head
There’s more that’s changed than just
Pencil markings up the wall
So quick, they called
Heartbeat isn’t making a final attempt
If when it falls
Will you say you knew
Will you say you knew
Will you say you knew
Will you say you knew

Tattered and Torn

I feel weathered and worn; she thinks it was better before
But we see different hues of colors in the night
Saying magic exists, what a surprise
Saying what a surprise

I feel tattered and torn, but she thinks it’s starting to get warm
And we speak different languages in the night
Saying only what will get us to the light
What will get up to the light

And I never thought I’d say what I believe
And I never thought I would say
And I thought I would forever repeat
I’m happier alone
I’m happier
I’m happier alone
But I’m not really

I feel shattered and sore; she thinks each sound is a sign of something more
But we find different shades of color in the night
Saying these eyes won’t see this another time
Won’t see this another time

I feel like I never have; she thinks, but she does not grasp
And we mouth different languages in the night
Saying nothing, but knowing it will be alright
Knowing it will be alright

And I never thought I’d say what I believe
And I never thought I would say
And I thought I would forever repeat
I’m happier alone
I’m happier
I’m happier alone
But I’m not really

I Was Wrong

Well I was wrong
She’s speaking words of damnation to me
Speaking in tongues or
Maybe Croatian to me
Well I was wrong
Placing a sly incantation on me
Saying there’s nothing wrong
Speaking in abbreviations to me
But they mean: I was wrong
And I was wrong
And I was wrong
She’s screaming facts and equations at me
Numbers go on and on
Her words are large formulations to me
That say: well I was wrong

Well I was wrong
This slight of hand it means nothing to me
For so long
I hung on cliffs for you, waiting to see
But I was wrong

Well I was wrong
Speaking with all of your hatred for me
Finding it goes on and on
And there is no explanation for me
Except that I was wrong
She’s speaking words of damnation to me
Speaking in tongues or
Maybe Croatian to me
Well I was wrong

Well I was wrong
This slight of hand it means nothing to me
For so long
I hung on cliffs for you, waiting to see
But time has gone
There’s nothing left that could possibly be
‘Cause I was wrong

55, 44, 33, 22

Fifty five and so alive, well where was that before
Forty four and so bored; has it caught up to him now
Thirty three and so green, if you know what I mean
Twenty two and so new, just oh so new
Didn’t know what to do

Fifty five and alright; he seemed to stumble on it now
Forty four and no more; counting minutes on his hand
Thirty three and so mean; it’s a hereditary thing
Twenty two and so new, just oh so new
Didn’t know what to do

Fifty five with nine lives, but a house that’s made of glass
Forty four and so torn; he thinks the clock is watching back
Thirty three, you poor thing; there’s the table and there’s the ring
Twenty two and so new, just oh so new
Didn’t know what to do
Didn’t know what to do

I’ve got one question for anyone who cares
With both hands raised so high in the air
And I’ve got one question for anyone who cares
With both hands raised so high in the air
With both hands raised so high in the air
With both hands raised so high in the air

Falling Asleep

She goes for the throat
She doesn’t know
But it’s good to hope
She aims for the neck
Or better yet
Whatever she can get
She tries for the eyes
She won’t deny
She’s lacking the surprise
She’s lacking the surprise

And we don’t care about the consequences of
And should we care about the consequences of
But we don’t care about the consequences of
So we don’t care about the consequences of
Falling asleep, oh falling asleep
Of falling asleep, oh falling asleep
Of falling asleep, oh falling asleep

He goes for the throat
He doesn’t know
But he still has hope
He tries for the eyes
He won’t deny
He’s lacking in surprise
He aims for the neck
Or better yet
Whatever he can get
Whatever he can get

And we don’t care about the consequences of
And should we care about the consequences of
But we don’t care about the consequences of
So we don’t care about the consequences of
Falling asleep, oh falling asleep
Of falling asleep, oh falling asleep
Of falling asleep, oh falling asleep

Two Hundred Feet

Before the sunrise, the fog made it gray
It was still a nice day
And the clouds hid the steel, and the steel stole the breath
Made you forget
The sounds from the cars were not very far
And two hundred feet can’t be that hard
I think they would say, think they would say
Four seconds could go either way
If I go right now, I might not change
My mind, change my mind

It’s a long way down
A long way down
A long way down
It’s a long way down
A long way down
A long way down
It’s a long way

It was such a clear day, on this fake golden bridge
And the words from your lips
They said please take a picture of me
I want to remember this clearly
And the railing, I gripped, and I started to lift

But it’s a long way down
A long way down
A long way down
It’s a long way down
A long way down
A long way down
It’s a long way down

And the tears ran down my cheeks
And the tears they fell with me

At the sunset, as the boats came to rest
And the birds reached their nests
The red it came out, and the cars they slowed down
And everyone got out
And what seemed like miles away is two hundred feet
But the more I wait, the more I think
I know they will say, know they will say
Four seconds cannot be that far
But the water’s cold, and the crash is hard
And I pray that I’ll break, hope I will break

And it’s a long way down
A long way down
A long way down
It’s a long way down
A long way down
A long way down
It’s a long way down

On Top A Mountain View

If there is a bigger picture
Hold your breath, and close your eyes
Fixing all the finite fixtures
Counting every single sign
We both agree to beg to differ
Sold on what was sealed inside
Cannot see this grand ole mixture
Hold your breath, and close your eyes

And if you see nothing
That’s fine

On top a mountain view, we sang
Look at all these people try
On top a mountain view, we sang
Watch all of these people try

And if you see nothing
Or if you see something
That’s fine

So don’t go getting lost
Or misinterpret the price or cost
And if you don’t see
Or don’t believe
We said
We said

An avalanche that’s made to fall
A home not built around four walls
We tried; it’s fine
A chair that holds a dying man
A thought written with broken hands
That’s fine; we tried
And if you don’t see
Or do not believe
Or just see nothing
Or a lack of something
How could you possibly know
That’s fine

If there is a bigger picture
Hold your breath, and close your eyes
On top a mountain view, we sang
Hold your breath, and close your eyes
And if you see nothing
Or if you see something
That’s fine

What We Can, We Will (Never Remember; Never Forget)

Well, in the bay, outside the car
Your penmanship; your little scar
And we were lost in woods and woods of words
We were lost in woods and woods of words

Well, on the pier, or in the sky
The path we took; the lone coastline
And we watched so many worlds go by
We watched so many worlds go by

Well, near the tree, far from the house
An old dead truck; that tiny mouse
And our hearts they felt it all bleed out
Our hearts they felt it all bleed out

Well, under the sun, on top of the grass
A cigarette; a single match
And we counted every chance that passed
We counted every chance that passed

‘Cause in the bay, outside the car
Inside a dream of who we were
We were lost in woods and woods of words
We were lost
We are lost
We are loss

What we can never remember
We will never forget
What we can never remember
We will never forget
What we can never remember
We will never forget
What we can never remember
We will never forget

What we can, we will
(Never remember)
What we can, we will
(Never forget)
What we can, we will
(Never remember)
What we can, we will
(Never forget)
