    tears that angels cry
    and they darken all the sky
    when the one you love says goodbye
    tears that angels cry
    sing a lullabye
    sing it soft and only sigh
    when the one you love says goodbye
    sing a lullabye

    when your love still is strong
    when the one you love is gone.

  • baby, don't bother

    Ago 14 2006, 16:48

    When you said you loved me, did you really love me?
    Or did the words just spill out
    like drool on my pillow.
    ‘Cause I was naked
    when you said those words,
    but I felt covered in your whispered worship.
    And as you passed out fast on my shoulder,
    I imagined a child
    waiting so sad and still for his mom to arrive.
    Did she leave you an orphan,
    in that big, brown leather chair?
    Said, “ Don’t you move a muscle, kid,
    I’ll be back in twenty years,”
    You were scared, you were lonely,
    but you must’ve been aware;
    life is a series of calluses,
    this is just another layer.
    So, build’em up, tough it out,
    yeah, that’s your skin –
    don’t let anyone under there.

    When you said you needed me,
    did you really need me?
    Or was I just someone –
    oh, you’d take anything.
    Am I first on that list of yours,
    or am I second, or third?
    So, who’s that ahead of me,
    some harlot from Pittsburgh?
    Or Detroit, Santa Fe, or San Diego?
    I know you’re so alone,
    but how much affection does one guy really need?

    Did you date a lot in high school?
    Were you always chasing girls?
    Couldn’t you find some young valentine
    to steal your heart for good?
    Were you content, or contemptible?
    Are your memories pleasant,
    or is it a string of endless flings of bitter resentment.
    Seems that what you want and what you need
    doesn’t mean a thing, we’re just here for the taking.

    When you said you’d hurt me,
    did you think you hurt me?
    Are you really that cocky?
    Oh, what a heartbreaker!
    Well, I’ve got my armor –
    yeah, I’ve been through some battles before.
    And I met your old girlfriend,
    she said, “Baby, don’t bother.”
    She told me you told her you’d hurt her
    Funny, how familiar.
    So, how much of this relationship was rehearsed?

    Did you act out as a child?
    Were you always crying wolf?
    Attention-starved, you tried too hard
    to get someone to look.
    Now you’re the wolf in second-hand clothing.
    I’m the sheep in a pleated skirt.
    It’s an awkward form of payback,
    but if it works for you, it works.
    It’s that I recognize your off-white lies,
    still, I lie beside you –
    and that’s what really hurts.

    When you said you’d leave me…
    well, why haven’t you left me?
    What are we still doing here,
    so desperate for company?
    There’s a greyhound on Jackson Street,
    there’s an airport in Council Bluffs.
    Hell, there’s a car in the driveway.
    Fifty ways to get lost.

    But as I hold you and listen to you sleeping,
    I’m starting to wonder if you really believe
    that you’d ever really leave.
    Would you leave me, an orphan,
    in that big, brown leather chair?
    The one you’ve lugged around from town to town for all these years.
    It’s the trophy of your childhood,
    like a shark’s tooth or gator skin boots –
    but this one holds you prisoner –
    it holds me prisoner too.
    What we need to set us free
    is to let go of each other – let go of everything.

    When I said I loved you,
    it was because I loved you.
    When I said I needed you,
    well, I really need you.
    Yeah, I guess you hurt me,
    for once you’re a man of your word.
    Well, guess what –
    I’m leaving.
    I can’t be your prisoner.

    I won’t.

    I wouldn’t know what to do with another chance
    If you gave it to me
    I couldn’t take the embrace of a real romance
    It’d race right through me
    I’m much better off the way things are
    Much much better off, better by far, by far
    I wouldn’t know what to say to a gentle voice
    It’d roll right past me
    And if you chalk it up you’ll see I don’t really have a choice
    So don’t even ask me
    I’m much better off, the way things are
    Much much better off, better by far
    So keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on
    And I’ll keep kicking the crap till it’s gone
    If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle
    And as soon as I settle, I bet I’ll be
    Able to move on
    How can I fight, when we’re on the same side
    How can I fight beside you
    So keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on
    And I’ll keep kicking the crap till it’s gone
    If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle
    And as soon as I settle, I bet I’ll be
    Able to move on
    So keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on
    And I’ll keep kicking the crap till it’s gone
    If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle
    And as soon as I settle, I bet I’ll be
    Able to move on

    You didn't have to be
    So mean to me
    I guess now I see
    How it's gonna be
    I've made up my mind
    Forget this thing called "love"
    It's a waste of time

    Boys ain't no good, anymore
    Anyway
    Not for one second have I understood
    Why they do what they do
    Why they say what they say
  • Ever fallen in love?

    Lug 14 2006, 4:31

    You spurn my natural emotions
    You make me feel like dirt
    And I'm hurt
    And if I start a commotion
    I run the risk of losing you
    And that's worse


    I can't see much of a future
    Unless we find out what's to blame
    What a shame
    And we won't be together much longer
    Unless we realize that we are the same


    Ever fallen in love with someone
    You shouldn't've fallen in love with?
  • Pieces

    Lug 11 2006, 21:44

    I tried to be perfect
    But nothing was worth it
    I don’t believe it makes me real
    I thought it’d be easy
    But no one believes me
    I meant all the things I said

    If you believe it’s in my soul
    I’d say all the words that I know
    Just to see if it would show
    That I’m trying to let you know
    That I’m better off on my own

    This place is so empty
    My thoughts are so tempting
    I don’t know how it got so bad
    Sometimes it’s so crazy
    That nothing can save me
    But it’s the only thing that I have

    If you believe it’s in my soul
    I’d say all the words that I know
    Just to see if it would show
    That I’m trying to let you know
    That I’m better off on my own

    On my own

    I tried to be perfect
    It just wasn’t worth it
    Nothing could ever be so wrong
    It’s hard to believe me
    It never gets easy
    I guess I knew that all along

    If you believe it’s in my soul
    I’d say all the words that I know
    Just to see if it would show
    That I’m trying to let you know
    That I’m better off on my own
  • Never, my love

    Lug 9 2006, 5:41

    You ask me if there'll come a time
    When I grow tired of you
    Never my love

    You wonder if this heart of mine
    Will lose its desire for you
    Never my love

    What makes you think love will end
    When you know that my whole life depends
    On you

    You say you fear I'll change my mind
    And I won't require you
    Never my love

    How can you think love will end
    When I've asked you to spend your whole life
    With me
