june bride april fool burning up play it cool like a prince at a moat with a frog in his throat i'm thinking of a number between 1 and 99 and you can't help but wonder if your stars will align of all the gin joints in all the world you walked right into mine please say that everything will be just fine oh baby, feed me a line posing as a figurine acting like a drama queen on a thrown to be wed 'til it's off with her head i'm thinking of a number between 1 and 99 and you can't help but wonder if your stars will align of all the gin joints in all the world you walked right into mine please say that everything will be just fine baby, feed me a line take a wild guess and you might just surprise yourself you'll even have time to disguise yourself for the compromises up ahead getting late losing light winter comes over night and you're chilled to the bone don't you wish you were home? i'm thinking of a number between 1 and 99 and you can't help but wonder if your stars will align of all the gin joints in all the world you walked right into mine please say that everything will be just fine oh baby, feed me a line

in a daze like a rat trapped in a maze you forget what you've been waiting for 'cause nothing seems amazing anymore still you recognize the sound right before it hits the ground and shatters like the broken hearts that echo through this town 'cause your world is so small and you feel like you've heard it all before the control takes its toll but you never thought you'd run from rock'n'roll not a trace it's a slap right in the face all the promises that never came and time won't heal the wounds that never fade if it wasn't set in stone then it's set deep in your bones and screaming through the silence when you find yourself alone 'cause your world is so small and you feel like you've heard it all before the control takes its toll but you never thought you'd run from rock'n'roll yeah, your world is so small and you feel like you've heard it all before the control takes its toll on rock'n'roll your world is so small and you feel like you've heard it all before the control takes its toll but you never thought you'd run from rock'n'roll

g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone and now you feel you finally found a home and don't you think you oughta hang up the phone so hang it up now g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone a queen without a king, who's claiming the throne and don't you think you oughta hang up the phone hang up the phone so hang it up now you've been thinking love's a bit like drinking, and... it's time you sober up and understand your happiness may not lie in a man another clone so girl you're better off alone n-n-n-now and then it's good to say goodbye 'cause after all the tears that you cry you might just see us on the other side rid of your cloud (no more clouds) g-g-g-g-g-girl, empty out your bed and while you're at it why not empty your head of all the lovely things that they have said they have said to keep you around? maybe years from now when all is said and done you won't lie in the arms of anyone who's faded out like all the other loves just hearts and bones so girl you're better off alone on a desert isle maybe for a while where you will learn to never mind the ticking crocodile g-g-g-g-g-girl, you're better off alone and now you feel you finally found a home and don't you think you ought to hang up the phone hang up the phone... so hang it up now ('cause you're better off alone) hang it up!

every time i look at you i can tell there’s something on your mind i’m not the kind of guy to go probing when i don’t know what i’ll find so just keep me in the dark ‘cause i hate this part i’m not ready to go and i don’t want... no, i don’t want to know ignorance... is blissful and... this i’ll try to savor while it lasts i’ve had it with honesty, honestly right now i need an act so just keep me in the dark ‘cause i hate this part i’m not ready to go and i don’t want... no, i don’t want to know does it show? i’m out of sorts building forts on my knees so please... just keep me in the dark ‘cause i hate this part i’m not ready to go and i don’t want... no, i don’t want to know

you were quite happy but that’s in the past i knew it wouldn’t last this forward movement ending in a crash is history rehashed the shelf life of butterflies the atoms that fill your lies you tell yourself you’ll leave it all behind another sermon goes up on the shelf written to yourself your patent’s pending you never can tell if heaven’s really hell the shelf life of butterflies the atoms that fill your lies you tell yourself you’ll leave it all behind but i know.... better than to argue with a hungry alley-cat even when it’s obvious who’s gonna pay for that i’d rather be the audience than be the diplomat once again you’re never looking back the shelf life of butterflies the atoms that fill your lies you tell yourself you’ll leave it all behind but i know better

put your guard up and attack and don’t go holding nothing back don’t leave anything intact don’t let me see those claws retract did he ever cut you slack? i think i’d remember that this is more than just a spat this time i can’t turn my back i never thought he’d go this far or i wouldn’t have let you start it up can i interrupt before you even talk? did i ever ask for more? what i wanted’s not important now all i want is for you to split and slam the door am i just fooling myself? convinced that you might listen, well... you just haven’t been yourself after three years of his hell i never thought he’d go this far or i wouldn’t have let you start it up can i interrupt before you even talk? i’m right behind you you can just fall back into my arms like a child, cradled safe away from harm no matter how tall, whatever the fall i’ll catch you it’s a game of trust that i’ve been playing without you when the day came you were a puddle dried... up before it could decide if it was ready to become what nobody ever sees again at least not in the same form i’m right behind you you can just fall back into my arms like a child, cradled safe away from harm no matter how tall, whatever the fall i’ll catch you it’s a game of trust that i’ve been playing without you it’s a game of trust that you finally fell into

tell me a story 'cause i'm all ears and i've been waiting all these years it's like a movie script with twists and turns the kind of plot where no one learns so moving so long you're the one who's holding onto this you're the one who can't get over it you're the one who won't let go of all this sentimental love a plastic flower can look so real and it'll fool you 'til you feel such a familiar place to stumble on the longest straws have all been drawn i'm moving i'm gone you're the one who's holding onto this you're the one who can't get over it you're the one who won't let go of all this sentimental love you're the one who's holding onto this you're the one who can't get over it you're the one who won't let go of all this sentimental love

that'll teach you to bite at the hand that still feeds you when all else is lost i can't reach you you're out on your own are you hungry? your toes in the frost was it music or maybe the movies that pushed you into the light? are you home sick or still sick of home? said it crushed you and maybe you're right but oh... it's hard to be alone when your heart's been broken right from the start it ruins everything you've been stuck in a sea of misguided rebellion for god knows how long you can't see if the storm is ahead or behind you the current is strong and oh... it's hard to be alone when your heart's been broken right from the start it ruins everything it ruins everything

there's a train you're riding on to go far away so you've decided not to go our way ‘cause you think that you know so you're already sold and you bought all the lies that you were told amelia, you won't believe all you can achieve a life of ease and free of disease you'll unlock the weight of your mind and leave all the pain far behind you'll come running back to us in time you can’t get far enough with your baby and you're family thinking that you've gone crazy and real soon you will learn that there's nowhere to turn but back into the arms of the love you've earned amelia, you won't believe all you can achieve a life of ease and free of disease you'll unlock the weight of your mind and leave all the pain far behind you'll come running back to us in time in time your heart will race your mind you're not the lonely kind we’ve opened up your eyes you could shine don't be blind ‘cause the world is a hole that'll bury your soul but the light that you know only leads you home amelia, you won't believe all you can achieve a life of ease and free of disease you'll unlock the weight of your mind and leave the pain far behind you'll come running back to us in time

gracie, don't you fret we're coming through for you and we won't let your fevered dreams come true just rest your head and sleep will follow soon 'cause in your bed you're safe as in the womb far from that place squeeze my hand grace do you ever feel like you're falling head over heels and nothing is real but the falling snow floating through the sky with no need to focus your eyes say your goodbyes 'cause you're going home gracie, you don't need to know what it all meant and soon you'll be at one-hundred percent so set the scene the gracie rose lament and fill the seats 'cause you're the main event the story's all true gracie, we're proud of you do you ever feel like you're falling head over heels and nothing is real but the falling snow floating through the sky with no need to focus your eyes say your goodbyes 'cause you're going home people are not in the habit of caring they are in the habit of tearing down your confidence and your pride do you ever feel like you're falling head over heels and nothing is real but the falling snow floating through the sky with no need to focus your eyes say your goodbyes 'cause you're going home

i got this feeling that nobody is listening i feel it all the way down to my toes can you hear me or am i just whistling? in the end it makes no difference i know all the voices that are out there singing to the empty seats in the last row play your heart out 'til your ears are ringing in the end it makes difference i know in the end it makes difference 'cause every wheel is gonna finish turning and every fire's gonna turn to ash and from your first to final curtain you're a redwood in the forest no one there to hear you crash to the ground not a sound you know that happiness is just a delusion a side effect of what you choose to ignore always waiting for another transfusion in the end it makes no difference i know in the end it makes no difference i know

leave now you've gone and said your peace leave now you've overstayed your lease words were said tears were shed now we're asking, please... leave now you've brought us to our knees leave now you've gone and had your fun leave now the damage has been done all those days laid to waste all those setting suns leave now you're not the chosen one words were said tears were shed now we're asking, please... leave now you've brought us to our knees
