Miss America

on April 5, 2017 - 12:26pm

Did someone give you something
To help you ease the pain?
Like the liquor in the bottle,
We watched you slip away
And I feel as if I know you
Through the bars of a song
Always surrounded but alone
But no goodbyes
You'll always be Miss America.
We watched you fly,
But nothing's free Miss America.
And as you fall apart
We just call it art.
Was it so hard to breathe?
Was the picture in the paper
Not the face you recognize?
Did the makeup never make up
For the pain behind your eyes?
'Cause I feel as if I know you
When you're on my silver screen
But I don't know the dark places

Blue On Blue

on April 5, 2017 - 12:24pm

How come you don't wanna see me
How come you've gone and left me alone
How come you took a slow boat to China
What can I do if I can't get through to you
Baby blue on blue
I want you more
Than I ever wanted
Than I ever needed
Anyone I ever knew
I love you [I love you] more than ever
Thought that I'd never feel the way that I do
How long you gonna leave me here standing
How long til you're gonna make up your mind
How long is your balloon ride to nowhere
And what can I do if I can't be there with you
Baby blue on blue
I want you more
Than I ever wanted
Than I ever needed

Postcards

on April 5, 2017 - 12:24pm

Sundays sitting on your back porch
And I came up with a couple of cords
And I played for you
You let me keep you entertained
With stories I exaggerate
That you know aren't true
And as you sit there making daisy chains
And I throw in a hand granate
And tell you how it is I really feel for you
I'm sending postcards from my heart
With love for a postmark and then
You know that you make me feel like we've been caught
Like kids in the school yard again
And I can't keep it to myself
Can't spell it any better
L.O.V.E forever
I hope you know that
I'm sending a postcard
I don't care

Always Hate Me

on April 5, 2017 - 12:22pm

Oh God it hurt
The moment that I saw you
With someone else
The one that you belong to
I never thought I'd drown in my shallow heart
I'd like to say
The things I never used to
But come today they wont ever be useful
I never learn to use my shallow heart
I, I, I I never meant to hurt you
It's just something I do
I guess it's not a good excuse
And she will always hate me
No matter what I say
And there is no mistaking
The love is gone
She will always hate me
She said, you lost me baby
No matter what I say
The love is gone
Looking back I guess I'm holding onto
The good we had

Bones

on April 5, 2017 - 12:22pm

I have never been a beautiful boy
Never liked the sound of my own voice
I wasn't cool when I was in my teens
I never slept but I did have dreams
As I step out in this big old world
Seven billion just trying to cope and
Everyone of us someday will die
But today I never felt more alive
Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it, feel it, feel it?
Running through your bones
Running through your bones
Yeah you set my heart on fire
And it's all hot wired to my bones
I can count all the things
I fear I close my eyes but they don't disappear
If there's a god then
