I Want To Save You Standing on the edge of morning Scent of sex and New Found Glory Playing as she’s pulling back her hair She drives away she’s feeling worthless Used again but nothings different She’d stay the night but knows he doesn’t care

She dreams that he’ll come by the store She prays for days when boys mean she’s protected And she wants someone to see her She needs to hear she’s beautiful She’s beautiful Chorus

Home by three to deafening quiet The porch lights off guess they forgot it She’d cry herself to sleep but she don’t dare

And she won’t sleep She won’t sleep at all

And she wants to be a model She wants to hear she’s beautiful She’s beautiful

Chorus

Chorus I want to save you I want to save you I need you, save me too I want to save you

Punk Rock Princess

Dressed by dawn and out the door No lights she memorized the floor So she could leave without being detected She works ‘til three it’s uniform

Chorus If you could be my punk rock princess I could be your garage band king You could tell me why you just don’t fit in And how you’re gonna be something Maybe when your hair gets darker Maybe when your eyes get wide Maybe when the walls are smaller There will be more space Maybe when I’m not so tired Maybe you could step inside Maybe when I look for things that I can’t replace… Chorus

Let me save you

Maybe when the room is empty Maybe when the bottles full Maybe when the door gets broke down Love can break in Maybe when I’m done with thinking Maybe you can think me whole Maybe when I’m done with endings This can begin...

If I could be your first real heartache I would do it over again If you could be my punk rock princess I would be your heroine I never thought you’d last I never dreamed you would You watch your life go past You wonder if you should Chorus

If I could be your first real heartache I would do it over again If you could be my punk rock princess I would be your heroine You know you only burn my bridges You know you just can’t let it sink in You could be my heroine I Woke Up In A Car I woke up in New York City From my sleep behind the wheel Caught a train to Poughkeepsie And time stood still She wrote me a letter from San Diego To qualify her luck These flights connect through Arizona But I think I’ll stay stuck Here I am Chorus I woke up in a car I traced away the fog So I could see the Mississippi on her knees I’ve never been so lost

I’ve never felt so much at home Please write my folks and throw away my keys I woke up in a car I met a girl who kept tattoos For homes that she had loved If I were her I’d paint my body ‘Til all my skin was gone She wrote me a letter As we passed through Rockford She said she won’t forget Maybe I do maybe I don’t But I know I haven’t yet But here I am Chorus Maybe I could live forever If not ever I had known That you’d be waiting there whenever I am all alone But here I am Chorus

iF yoU C Jordan I have a story A bitter anthem For everyone to hear About this kid who just don’t like me And that’s a solid fact They say he’s hunting me And as you see I’m all swelled up with fear ‘Cuz I can’t get him off my back Chorus If you see Jordan He makes me sick High schools over And you still won’t quit You tried to fight me down at Tyler’s beach And man I think that’s great You nearly cried and said to yell at you Like I do at all the girls Then you drove home real quick Did you make it in time to masturbate? There’s one too many of you in this world Chorus


You say its chivalry But its jealousy that lead us to this song Won’t play it often Just at least until you’re gone You’ll stop at nothing but the real thing And everything up to that’s pretend You tried to brainwash all my friends Chorus Fuck you Jordan You make me sick High schools over I don’t care if you die your hair You’ll always be a little red head bitch The Astronaut I’ve been sleeping with ghosts I’ve been watching stars crawling out of the sky I’ve been hoping I’m close To the spaceman movies I call my life

off of the wall And maybe if I’m lucky I could catch them before you fall And you are not alone

I need to be high I disappear in a world she bought Calling out to the astronaut I need to be high

Chorus Calling out to the astronaut I need some of what you’ve got I need to be high Crawling out of a world she bought Calling out to the astronaut I need to be high

Hurricane

I’ve been holding this microphone And I’ve been channeling but I think we’re alone I’ve got platinum vision and a tin foil touch I’ve got you to propel me But I still need so much Not to be alone Chorus You are not alone…

And I’ve been climbing ladders through time I’ve got tunnel vision but I’m doing fine And I’ve been watching stars coming

Calling out to the astronaut I need some of what you’ve got

Shake down you make me break For goodness sake I think I’m on the edge Of something new with you Shout out don’t drown the sound I’ll drown you out You’ll never scream so loud As I want to scream with you Standing there with your smile blinding Your eyes from seeing My face as I’m dying To figure out a girl But she drifts so far away I’m on her coast So maybe I should stay And map around your world

Chorus So Don’t Say “These currents are still killing me” And you can’t explain But the wind went and pulled me Into the hurricane

Maybe this time I can follow through I can feel complete Stop paying dues Stop the rain from falling Keep my oceans calm This time I know nothings wrong

Stand up don’t make a sound Your ears might bleed There are sweet fluorescent enemies That live inside of me The world moves faster than I knew Not fast enough to not creep up on you And the space we put between So pull me under your weather patterns Your cold fronts and the rain don’t matter Because a sun burns what I needed

Chorus

Chorus You don’t do it on purpose But you make me shake Now I count the hours ‘til you wake With your babies breath Breathe symphonies Come on sweet catastrophe

Cavanaugh Park At Cavanaugh Park Where I used to sit all alone in the dark And dream about things that I cannot say You always said destiny would blow me away And nothings gonna blow me away At Cavanaugh Park Where you used to take me to play in the sand And said to me son “one day you’ll be a man And men can do terrible things” Yes they can Chorus There was never any place For someone like me to be totally happy

I’m running out of clock and that ain’t a shock Some things never do change Never do change At Cavanaugh Park We used get high Watching teams as they fought They loved my friend Adam But he always got caught Man, that kid made fucking up look cool Aren’t we all so cool? Chorus At Cavanaugh Park Where I used to think that this life would be good And I would do things that I thought that I should And no ones gonna tear me down Chorus


Fall I close my eyes Thought I was lost but I was stranded I go outside To my surprise the sky had landed I thought it made more sense If I could only keep you guessing I was a fool to think That I should stop you from undressing Now I’m believing all the words you say That I can’t say back to you To you Chorus So I fall I don’t want to feel this small You know I just can’t handle this Handle this at all And I’ll just fall I let my heartbeat drop I falter as the music stops And you watch me as I stall And wonder when I fall I kiss your neck

I feel you breathing on my shoulder Still I’m perfect It must be you ‘cuz now it’s over I was so close That was the most that I have ever been through Now old cassettes and cigarettes Will be the ones to save you How can you ask for me to stay When all you ever do is go? Just go Chorus Go on You’ve kept me waiting Go on And watch me as I fall I don’t want to feel this small You know I just can’t handle this Handle this at all And so I fall I let my heartbeat drop I falter as the music stops And you watch me as I stall And wonder when I

Straw Dog Staring into the intersection She thinks that she can fly and she might Holding on in a new direction She’s gonna try it tonight The closer I get to feeling The further that I’m feeling from alright The more I step into the sun The more I step out of the light Jessica is covered in a blanket On a Sunday porch Thinking of weekends she would party in the city She doesn’t have a flame She’d prefer to burn out like a torch If she gets nowhere in life At least she knows she’s pretty Chorus Hey now The straw dogs out in the street Hey now There are chemicals in the clouds Hey now

They’re calling all the police But they won’t get to us anyhow The moon is shining now And shadows are what’s left of all the noise Simple silhouettes and cutouts As if we had the choice He listens closely now Swears that he can hear a voice That’s calling him and saying Chorus What does it take to be a super hero In my world? Make no mistake that these villains Always get the girl We can escape and then we’ll skate away from all of this But no one ever does Chorus

Good News She’s trapped inside her room With reruns on the screen Old books and movies But she can’t stop thinking I’m torn between myself My radio my friends I want to write this one off over and over again And then she looked at me to scream “My castles are falling” But I can’t look into the street Without everything changing I want to read good news I want to be innocent again I want to read good news But nothing good is happening She waits all day She stands a stranger in her skin She moves the science with her hands She lines her walls With every paper she can see These words consume her But they never set her free

And then she looked at me to scream “My castles are falling” But I can’t look into the street Without everything changing I want to read good news I want to be innocent again I want to read good news But nothing good is happening I want to read good news I want to be a little kid again I want to read good news But nothing good is happening I want to read good news I want to go to sleep at night again I want to read good news But nothing good is happening Drunk Girl I kissed a drunk girl I kissed a drunk girl yes I did Kissed a drunk girl on the lips I let my guard down How could I have been so dumb?


Her eyes were open I know I am not the one

When I want her to be all mine? Chorus

Chorus I kissed a drunk girl Why do I do these things I do to myself I kissed a drunk girl And I’m sure I could have been anybody else I went to her house And everybody there was gone Her little cousin Just passed out on the lawn We walked to my car She mouthed “Is everything okay?” She leaned in slowly So now I can say Chorus I pulled away I didn’t think it would be right I said “Lets save it for another night” And she said “No, no, no I know That everything is gonna be just fine” How could I do this

Nothing’s the same when you give it away No it’s not what it seems It’s just what you think it is

Chorus

And these fights They climb through my veins like it’s mercury rising And these nights I seem to remember a home that was better And now he’s turning off Now she’s shutting down

Not What It Seems

Chorus

A long day If ever these questions were yours what would you say? I don’t know But I’m writing the answers on cheap paper napkins And now he’s turning off Now she’s shutting down

Now he’s turning off This family is breaking down

I know you don’t care about me I’m sure when all is said and done And I go home feeling lonely You will have had your fun Do you even remember?

Chorus It’s not what it seems

Chorus It’s just what you think it is You’re Gone Taking steps back through the words I should’ve said to you. they all got lost, you went away

and I feel sick and you just don’t care anymore Hours to be with you minutes of me in you And I can’t feel this happening So tie my hands back and make me feel you coming down I’m coming down Chorus And you don’t care Your face is on a billboard And you’re everywhere You don’t care much for interviews Your Gone… You’ve gone away If you don’t like being hurt then please don’t stay It’s hard to wave goodbye From airplanes when I Just don’t think that you can see I taper off And say it’s never worth the pain Sometimes it is. Chorus God I wish that I could make this right,

I wish that there was something worth the time for her to give to me. A phone call from LA is my present There’s nothing left for me to give I wish I could And I know that I should But you know I know I won’t

Chorus Globes and maps are all around me now I want to feel you breathe me Globes and maps I see surround you here Why won’t you believe me? Globes and maps they chart your way back home Do you want to leave or something?

If you don’t like being hurt then get away If you don’t like being hurt then please don’t stay

Dreams came around you In a hazy rain You open your mouth wide to feel them fall And I write a letter from a one-way train But I don’t think you’ll read it at all

Globes and Maps

Chorus

Light breaks underneath A heavy door And I try to keep myself awake Fall all around us on a hotel floor And you think that you’ve made a mistake And there’s a pain in my stomach From another sleepless binge And I struggle to get myself up again I want to hang onto something That won’t break away or fall apart Like the pieces of my heart

I can’t take this anymore I know that I can’t take this anymore I can’t take this anymore Cuz I know someday I’ll see you walk out that door
