One, two, three, four
You told me 32 ways to make you smile
I did 31 within the first hour
You stood amazed in your delighted shoes
Bewildered but willing, didn't know what to do
So I grabbed your cold hand
Pressed it to my beating heart and said
Isn't it neat how our bodies tick
And we can move our feet
Whenever and however we please?
You stared blindly while I waited politely
In the doorway ...
Bottom lips and fingertips
Two twenty something kids getting acquainted
In a dim lit room at the bottom of the stairs
Forget first names and old birthdays
Those were lost with the clothes that hit the floor
When the light switch got turned off
I'm just your boy to f***, you're just my girl to touch
Of course it's natural to fall in love
But love is for people with hearts
Not for the kids just ...
If my life had a soundtrack it would be acoustic
With songs about the way I laugh
At my ability to love things that I can't have
If my life were a movie, it would be black and white
With still-frames in color and hue
The credits would say a simple phrase like
"You aren't what you say or what you do
So don't worry so much
Just get on with a life that you love"
I had a good day since I didn't di...
I could be a better person but I choose not to
I'm as selfish as a suicide and wait I take that back
I didn't mean to say it quite like that
I took all of my memories and threw them in the ocean
Just like that they drowned on impact
In a flurry of nightmares dressed up like dreams
I opened my eyes and managed to find some clarity
Don't hang onto words you don...
Well, it's Friday night, what the f*** are we doing here?
If I didn't have this song stuck in my head
I'm sure my thoughts would be a little more clear
No excuses this time, gonna keep it in drive
So don't fuss or fight, we're gonna live like our buried souls
Have been brought back to life
And I know I've said it at least a thousand times before
But please just keep your mouth shut
Let's live ...
Hello, how are you?
I'm pretty sure we should be best friends
I'll walk you to school
And tell you, you look pretty each new day
We'll learn about philosophy by drawing on our arms
And build ourselves an alright house made out of Uno cards
They'll say we're unconventional and maybe a little crazy
We'll ask 'em what's wrong with that?
Yeah, we'll ask 'em what's wrong with that?
Hello, how are y...
Hey, I think you're cute
Would you like to be my new best friend?
We can talk for hours or just lay in bed
You're just the kind of kid I could grow old with
So won't you walk with me to the park up the road?
I told you that I'd be right back
You said that I'll be the judge of that
'Cause see boys, they have a tendency of running from me
As fast as they can, I don't know why
Well, I just laughe...
One, two, one, two, three
Well, how about that, it's a matter of fact
The life you've got is all you'll get
And you do your best not to f*** it up too much
Yeah, the thing about that is it's a hard new fact
You smoke until your lungs turn black
The surgeon general couldn't really give a shit less
Seasons change and people stay the same
Each year the whore's hike their skirts up a bit more
Are you sure that's what you want to say?
Think back, relax and get back to me
This is not your everyday reaction
More like a two-time, forgettable, satisfaction
Well, I've been thinking about it, planning in my head
The ways, the time, the days that just stick out
And I've come to the conclusion
That there is no resolution for your ways
Think this one's a keeper, save it for another day
Well, if I'm Frank Sinatra you're Audrey Hepburn
I like to sing and you like the movies
Life it's not a photograph, you gotta keep moving
Frames are for folks with no hope
If I'm all alone, you're a new brick home
Windows and doors, locks and rugs
I don't have a reason or a simple excuse
To put it nicely I'm likely do anything for you, you
Well, everybody lies sometime
Even winners have to los...
It's February and I just want April
To take my hand and pick me up again
Yeah, I'm numb but it's really not that bad
Live life 'til you get it wrong
Take a breath and turn your head
Oh my god, I've gotta get out of this trend
It's 8 o'clock in the middle of a last chance
Can't we just pretend we don't know
Anything or anyone or anywhere anyway?
It's kinda scary in the dark in the dim light
I like Saturdays and the rocket summer
Blue skies and the morning's air
Oh oh, oh oh
I like you, you like me
There's something wrong with this picture
Let's turn it upside down so we can see
The insecurities caused by the last four years
Of economic downsizing in the Eastern US
I like February along with Tilly and the Wall
Pretty pictures and shirts that are too small
For my child-like figure ...
F*** love, I'm gonna keep my day job
Celebrate the life that I've already got
With a bottle of something
That'll make this day less relevant
F*** life, I'm gonna put up a fight
From what I hear the trend is that we're all gonna die
So if I'm gonna f*** it up
Then I might as well f*** it up right
Everybody knows how
Everybody knows how
Tomorrow's such a letdown
Tomorrow's such a letdown
