I will never be you, I will always be me

Gimme a break, a little escape
I am so tired of being me
I wanna be free, I wanna be new and different
Anything I'm not

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

You can feel it in the summer breeze

You are the one for me
After all the waiting I can finally breathe
Earth and sky say what they may
I will love you all throughout my days
Happiness happens when our hearts combine
When it's you I'm with I come alive
It's just so clear to see
Darling, we are meant to be

Saturday, August 2, 2008

One day you’ll find love

And I’m gonna keep on
Waiting for those yellows to change to greens

Thursday, July 24, 2008

I can tell it's gonna be a good day

Did you sleep well?
Did you dream at all?
Can you tell me the time?
On the alarm clock

I can tell it's gonna be a good day
I can tell it's gonna be a good day

But you can sleep in
You just keep dreamin'
For us

Saturday, July 5, 2008

You are shadowing my dreams

And there's not enough room
In this world for my pain
Signals cross and love gets lost
And time passed makes it plain
Of all my demon spirits
I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

I try to keep myself moving

You're the traffic in my head
You're the reason why I'm wrecked
I pray for it to stop
Like rain on the sidewalk
Traffic in my head
You're the traffic in my head
There's just too much to forget

I won't worry my life away

When I fall in love I take my time
There's no need to hurry when I'm making up my mind
You can turn off the sun but I'm still gonna shine

It's the smile on your face

I always said I'd never cry over you.
But it's hard to hold back tears when your fears come true.
I'm sitting here lonely, and I'm missin' you!
Come home!

Everytime you go away, my heart goes with you.
Everytime you go away, my heart's torn in two.

Hello (:

'Cause baby you start
and then you stop
and my heart beats big before it drops
and I don't know what to do

Sit back and let my love grow good for you

So baby whatcha waiting, whatcha waiting,
whatcha waiting for?

Monday, June 23, 2008

Pictures blurred in your head

Oh everything else doesn't matter
Really 'cause that girl that you love
She's never going away
And if you want her you can't have her
Break yourself into
A million pieces
And everything else can wait
And if you want her you can't have her
Break yourself into
A million pieces
So everything else can wait for you
So everything else can wait for you
So everything else can wait for you to do

Paper Cup

And everything stands so still when you dance
Everything spins so fast
And the night's in a paper cup
When you want it to last

Wishful thinking you might be mine
Every shiver sends
One breath under the bridge of sighs
Bending where the river bends

And every dream is just a dream, after all

Saturday, June 21, 2008

You are never ahead of, never behind us

Everything's gonna get lighter,
even if it never gets better

Forget your politics for a while
Let the color schemes arrive

Sunday, June 15, 2008

You're a breath of fresh air to me

Tempted by fate
And I won't hesitate
The time is now
And I can't wait

I've been in here too long
The time is now
The chance is now
It's come

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

beat, heart, beat

The sunshowers that fall on my troubles
Are you over my baby
And some showers I'll be aiming at you
'Cos I'm watching you my baby

Monday, June 9, 2008

The day I saw you the skies turned blue

Tuesday mornings I go to the sea
There is a place where I love to be
I hope you will be there
And I will be there, too

Now I know just what to do
To make this story continue
I will try to act my best with you
So I can see you on Wednesday, too

Sunday, June 8, 2008


Little town it's a quiet village.
Everyday like the one before.
Little town full of little people, waking up to say...

Saturday, June 7, 2008

I'll stay up all night to hear about your day

If it's not too late for coffee
I'll be at your place in ten
We'll hit that all night diner
And then we'll see

There's a love that transcends
All that we've known of ourselves
And I'll wait for it to come

Friday, June 6, 2008

You're the crescendo

When I think of you
I see better days and getaways
cause everyday is a holiday with you.

Thursday, June 5, 2008


I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

Sunday, May 18, 2008

I gotta have you

Gray, quiet and tired and mean
Picking at a worried seam
I try to make you mad at me over the phone
Red eyes and fire and signs
I'm taken by a nursery rhyme
I want to make a ray of sunshine and never leave home

Friday, May 16, 2008

And all the angels they'll be singing, "I love this."

Wake up everyone,
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue

Friday, May 2, 2008

And I'm just sitting, watching, hoping the boys will call for me.

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint this picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just trying to make you see that
I desire the simple things.

Thursday, April 24, 2008

You said in my photograph I looked more far away

And all that time, I felt just fine
I held so many people in my suitcase heart
That I had to let the whole thing go
It was taken by the wind and snow
And I still didn’t know that I was waiting
For a girl on a slow pony home

Monday, April 14, 2008

crazy is the forecast all week

There's a good chance in hell
Like cats and dogs we'll be flying
And I'm no weatherman
But you are lightning, striking

Here comes the sun, and the rain
All at once down the sink

Sunday, April 13, 2008

what does it mean you leave and I follow

Let me down you say never baby blues don't you ever
I'm used to being one with the misfortune to find
Afternoons run for cover and full moons just wonder
What it looks like here on my morningside

Thursday, April 10, 2008

I don't give a damn, I'm happy as a clam

When I was a child everybody smiled
Nobody knows me at all
Very late at night and in the morning light
Nobody knows me at all

Sunday, April 6, 2008

I don't think much about you, anymore

(Oh no)
Oh, lately it's so quiet, in this place.
You're not 'round every corner.
(Oh no)
Oh, lately it's so quiet in this place.
So darling, if you're not here haunting me,

I'm wondering whose house are you haunting tonight?
Whose sheets you twist,
Whose face you kiss?
Whose house are you haunting tonight?

Thursday, April 3, 2008

your head in the clouds

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
a girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Wednesday, April 2, 2008

hello, world.

God would like to own your autograph
The angels fight over your photograph
Put your record on the phonograph
Look at your position on the map
