She fought the FBI And she sold her soul to a sketchy spy She fought the CIA When she signed her named, couldn’t get away It’s so damn hard to get by With no one standing by her side She’s not amused to be confused At all the things she thought she knew Time cannot erase the things she’s had to face She’ll let you in but never out And that’s just what she’s all about Just say yes, it’ll be alright She said it every single time She took the plunge, did she think of you As she spread her wings and flew? Time can’t be her friend when she’s rushing to the end Summer’s in her heart, but trust me dear It ain’t four seasons of the year And I cannot help when you’re bringing me down She’s bringing me down You cannot help but to do just what you do
I fell for you It was just one time and you were falling too He was there too I never thought you’d go for something new You can say it again, say it again It won’t work for me You can fake it again, fake it again For the whole world to see I knew it by your sigh of relief and You used to give me something to believe in She said, she said We’re never gonna make it She said, she said It’s only gonna drag us down She said, she said We’re gonna have to fake it She said, she said We’ll dance until the night is done You saw the signs Coming at you like city lights Bent out of line With all of your flaws running through your mind You can say it again, say it again Lost in a choice And you can blame it on them, blame it on them No reason or voice I knew it by the grin on his face and I’m just another notch in your bedstand And all this time, you were dancing with the cool kids Glancing over, asking me to read lips By the bar, hanging around wasting time What’s up, Caroline?
Pretty Girl 02:58
I can’t stop thinking about you When you’re running through my brain You pull me down when you say that it’s over And you’re driving me insane And we’ll burn it down We’ll burn it to the ground You say it’s over now But we don’t know how Woah! My heart’s outta control Woah! I think it’s time to go Off and on Pretty girl, you know you’re off and on Pretty girl, you got me off and on Pretty girl, you know you’re… You’re so on, I’m so off I’m so onto you Just one kiss is how it started And it’s how we’ve always been You make the rules for the death departed As you take it on your chin And I’ll let you in It’s my greatest sin And we’ll do our time For our crime, for our crime
She busted through the door She spilled it on the floor We all know it was almost over now I was always last to know Always left out in the cold We all know it was almost over now It’s alright to tell them What you think about me It’s alright for us to argue now My courage burned too fast But the moment slipped and past I don’t know what went wrong Her friends, they helped a bit But they made it hard to say I don’t know what went wrong Don’t go wasting time on stupid ignorance Don’t go wasting time on stupid people now She’s so damn conceited, not hardly deceiving Don’t go wasting time on stupid ignorance She busted through the door She spilled it on the floor We all know what wrong…
On This High 02:51
And she said, the sky will someday be on fire And she said, soon it will come crashing down But we tried to trip On clouds to see if we could get higher But we died before we hit the ground And your friends, they said They didn’t think that we would ever make it But I knew it would be going down Now I stand on this high Mounted on the shoulders of giants Looking at your shit show down below I won’t tell you how to live your life today I won’t tell you that I’m starting again I’m starting again I won’t tell you how to live your life today I won’t tell you
I woke up in a world where we all sit back And wait for things to change Now we see through eyes that mirror normal To become estranged And I can’t shake this fear Of a future standing here Where the roles are called And the called are rolled Into the atmosphere They say that loose lips sink ships But I don’t know ‘cause I can’t fucking sail And if I tried, I’d bet a dime Your words would drown us as we flail And I can’t promise you I won’t leave you on your own And I’ll turn this thing around And point the nose for home I can’t breathe When it all all comes faster but it doesn’t matter at all I can’t feel When one is turning and the other’s burning, we’ll fall We gotta go I’m outta my head, you already know I can’t see What’s in your mind, not written on the wall
