I wanna lay you down on a bed of roses but not like bon jovi I'mma leave the thorns in cuz you like it rough, whoa speaking of roses every one has its thorn and I've been wanting you baby since the day I was born I was in the womb with carnal desires for you I don't say it like those other boys do I've got to keep it real I'm in love with you baby yeah this is how I fucking feel I'd do anything for your love yes I'd even do that so tell your new ex-boyfriend he can have his shit back cuz I'm moving in, whoa I don't say it like those other boys do I've got to keep it real I'm in love with you baby yeah this is how I fucking feel When you're lost I'll look and I'll find you You know I'll always be two steps behind you And when we can try to find the right words to say I guess I'll have to show you in another way

in dying light an amber tear's rolling from your eye you don't wipe you just let it dry as the wind blows over your face lying here flight of ideas, past regrets and how you try but you can't forget who you've hurt along the way I know how you've been wronged well, I've been here all along I'll stay here waiting for shooting stars til you catch one cuz I don't care who you've been with as long as I'm the last one as long as I'm the last one it turns to night and still the stars dot across the sky just like the holes in my alibis you were onto all along you know how I deflect but you keep it all in check I'll stay here waiting for shooting stars til you catch one cuz I don't care who you've been with as long as I'm the last one as long as I'm the last one we'll take this car and drive back home now we have our own sunrise anyway

The Fatalist 04:02
won't you get to know me? (she said) hey, let's watch this story unfold but they phoned in the words and the rule of thirds were broken several times it's been a while now that I've had a go at this you know it's not the first time a girl didn't notice but I see in your eyes records of landslides covering the best part of you Hey girl, do you think something's wrong with you? Nobody knows what you're hiding for Hey girl, don't you be such a fatalist There's more than one way to this heart of yours how could it take so long to find out who we are? I guess I'll say goodbye before we reach another arc in this story your eyes were on me so careful, suspicious but now you're not with him another shot will end the same loose covers block unsteady frames but they won't keep you warm Hey girl, do you think something's wrong with you? Nobody knows what you're hiding for Hey girl, don't you be such a fatalist There's more than one way to this heart of yours Hey girl, why on earth would it matter? we both would be better we could do things together let's try out for this part and I might break your heart but at least it would start up again

I gotta let you know girl I gotta let you know I fell in love with another kind I gotta let you know things are running really slow I fell in love with another kind to wait for me is useless take some time to get through this you'll find another guy I'll find another kind my love came and showed me something new and yours will, too we fought and tore this love and we both know it's enough I feel that four on the floor she's who I'm looking for tighten the grip on my glass cuz now she's in sight she'll see I'm not like the rest true as the beat in my chest I think about her touch and then I feel like
5.
She, my own Michelle, ma cherie amor from heaven fell adorned in jeans and scrubs Me, a case study in moppishness resigned to be forlorned I need to touch And if it were up to me I would race Yee and Chen and impress her again and again be still my heart Now I'm like a child on Christmas day I'm never late to share this air with her Dreams of brunch along Champs-Elysees with wine and creme brulees we laugh and flirt And if it were up to me I'd forget about Beth and race one legged head-long into our own chateau Je reve de tremper ma baguette dans ta soup et puis leche le ju tres bien (I would like to dip my baguette in your soup and lick the juice very well)
6.
let's take a walk instead tonight just the two of us outside a thousand fractions multiplied but somehow you ended up by my side lives they changed and hearts did break but still a little held on years we wasted we'll replace them we'll pick up where we left off with those and them some torn down, remade and it all just fits together two lines translate and it all just fits together I watched a drop of dew crawl down the glass in morning sun and then that little drop of water beat the odds and split a part and back again people stay while others fade and some we'll have to let go as we've grown we've always shown that if we take a wrong track we'll find our way back past lives now fade and it all just fits together grown up we've changed and it all just fits together time may finally slow my pace but always a little holds on keep these lines like fireflies let them dance around in your head even in my absence torn down, remade and it all just fits together two lines translate and it all just fits together

it's gonna be a long time for me to get over this I really messed up this time I only think about myself and I take it back but I let it happen over and over again I think I'll find a way to deal with this in bullet points and numbered lists 1 take your hand off the door and 2 place it in my hand 3 we'll let it out and 4 forget about every word that we said cuz when I reach out (whoa) and I see you've already left no, I won't let it be 'til you don't wanna sleep on any other bed I wake up fine thinking you've left at dawn then I come home to find that more is gone I'm drowned in distractions once again while working on this little plan and it goes like 1 take your hand off the door and 2 place it in my hand 3 we'll let it out and 4 forget about every word that we said cuz when I reach out (whoa) and I see you've already left no, I won't let it be till we can get past three and I can lay out a plan and you'll believe this time it's not a lie you won't get caught in an endless spiral but what's the point of watching promises fall off your back as you're walking away I wake up and it's still empty every day

Hey Tracey 02:46
throws her keys on the couch next to old photographs takes the last bit of wine and pours it into a glass Zach and Kelly going steady on her window screen she's over 30 but she acts like she's 18 and I know that when the first boy kissed her she was listening to A-Ha and Mr. Mister and even though I've never done this before I think I just might ask her on the sales floor thank god I turned 18 or this illicit affair wouldonly be a dream like the one where I lay naked on the black satin sheets you're my princess barbie I'm your GI JOE elite we'll take the jeep to the beach where we'll sit all day you can forget about Ken we always knew he was gay and I know that when the first boy kissed her she was listening to A-Ha and Mr. Mister and even though I'm at my sexual prime she's not, oh well, I'm sure we'll have a good time hey tracy will you chase me up and down the aisles of the department store and if you catch me will you arrest me and tell me that I'm not the one you're looking for you told me you weren't available but you were flattered that I was interested before today you'd sit next to me but now I wish you'd never heard me say did you ever find that perfect guy does he know about those things you like? I wish I was Regis but I'll never be this I'll never feel those warm lips on mine your warm lips on mine

I gave into you last night faced with a friend who was lost or he died put my hands together closed my eyes and asked for him back and you gave him back I remembered this dream around noon knew that I had some work to do sometimes we're weak and we fall cuz we're humans after all We're wired to cling to something when troubles come our way with no one to blame you take the pain you hold it on your own I know it's tough with no reason to back it up but I climbed to the top of the mountain and found there was nothing but the world below and you know something? that's all I need if they never stop believing then I will still love them and never feel like I'm above them I want you to believe but enough about how it made me shouldn't your logic include empathy? let me help with the math you're a sociopath and you suck I just asked too many questions before it got too deep we hand-pick our souls that move on to be with again when we're gone it's for our own little star not the billions other than ours but I climbed to the top of the mountain and found there was nothing but the world below and you know something? that's all I need if they never stop believing then I will still love them and never feel like I'm above them cuz they'll always believe
