LYRICS

143

When it's dark

You’re high and lonely

And there’s no

One left around

I’ll be there

I’m riding over

Emmy’s broke

But Gram’s in town

But at dusk

I start to feel the ache

In the city by the lake

And Billy Corgan’s there

He’s in a fuckin’ stupid cape

And we couldn’t look away

I hear The Echo’s crowded

Streets are loud and

Friends keep going on about it

Weekends are all I ever wanna do

God gave ‘em

Babe, we gotta see it through

Day’s spent drowning in a melody

Weekends are all I ever wanna do

Hold hands, kiss, love, can’t even move

Three A.M.

We’re fading slowly

All the neon’s dying out

I’m doing good

Up on Cahuenga

Nothing seems to matter now

Jameson speaks the truth

But I don’t know

Yeah, how bout you?

Put this on

The walk is easy

No one’s left to slow us down

But at dawn,

I start to feel the ache

In the city by the lake

and Billy Corgan’s there

He’s in a fuckin’ awesome cape

But he’s flying nowhere

And now they’re talking shit

it’s getting loud

And Leonard’s bout to tweet it out

Weekends are all I ever wanna do

God gave ‘em

Babe, we gotta see it through

Day’s spent drowning in a melody

Weekends are all I ever wanna do

Hold hands, kiss, love, can’t even move

Weekends are all I ever wanna do

God gave ‘em

Babe, we gotta see it through

Day’s spent drowning in a melody

Weekends are all I ever wanna do

Hold hands, kiss, love, can’t even move

DREAMLIKE STATE

They say it’s just a phase

But i’ve been awake for days

Living in a dreamlike state

I’ve counted all my blessings

I’ve learned a brand new lesson

In faith

When all this starts to fade

I'll count out all the ways

That I cannot be saved

It’s like they never knew me

I’m living in this movie

Each day

The world is not your stage

You’ve gotta learn babe how to play

Theres only one way out this game

(one way out this game)

There’s only one way out

And it’s never quite the same

I turned a different page

But the writings still the same

As i shudder not to think

And take it day by day

The world is not your stage

You’ve gotta learn babe how to play

Theres only one way out this game

(one way out this game)

There’s only one way out

And it’s never quite the same

There’s only one way out

And it’s gonna be OK.

HOLD ME LIKE YOU KNOW ME

All I ever wanted
was far too much
and all I ever needed
was to find your touch

I’m down on my
hands and knees
begging for you
to please hold me
Just hold me
like you know me
All I ever wanted
was for you
to adore me

I’m begging you
begging you
(begging you
begging you)

Just hold me
like you know me

(hold me like you know me)

All I had was tragic
for a long, long time
What I thought
I never had
Then I finally realized

I’m down on my
hands and knees
begging for you
to please hold me
Just hold me
like you know me
All I ever wanted
was for you
to adore me

I’m begging you
Begging you
(begging you
begging you)

I’m begging you
Begging you
(begging you
begging you)

SOMEDAY MAYBE

I’m in love with a someday maybe
It shouldn’t hurt so but it seems like lately
It’s hard to see it going any other way

Amusement parks and late night whiskey
Come on to Shelly’s cos I know you miss me
The porch is open and it seems we’re here to stay

The way it was and the way that it could be
The smell of summer in the air goes through me
A brand new night and a brand new feeling
Who are they to say we’re only dreaming

It’s getting dark but you’re looking brighter
I found some Lucky’s and the Gigi lighter
Let’s share a smoke and we’ll piss the night away

…………..But
If you’re feeling what I’m feeling
I wouldn’t be too surprised
Because I felt all the heat and my heart skipping beats
As I looked in to my someday maybe’s eyes
It’s beyond rhyme or reason
That I felt butterflies
As we stood on the street with Nick Cave on repeat, as I looked into my someday maybe’s eyes

I’m in love with this feelin, baby
Got a bad case of the someday maybes
Its hard to see it going any other way
Always thinking ‘bout the role I’m playin
but I think I need to keep on prayin’
Don’t wanna end it cuz I think I’m here to stay

The way it was and the that way it could be
The smell of night on the street goes through me
a brand new way and a brand new feeling
and who are they to say we’re only dreaming

…………..But
If you’re feeling what I’m feeling
I wouldn’t be too surprised
Because I felt all the heat and my heart skipping beats, as I looked in to my someday maybe’s eyes
It’s beyond rhyme or reason
That I felt butterflies
As we stood on the street with this song on repeat
As I looked in to my someday maybe’s eyes

Step back, I don’t even know you
Get back, it’s harder not to show you
Stay cool, I don’t really know how
Gotta make sure that the dream stays a dream now

Step back, I don’t even know you
Get back, it’s harder not to show you
Stay cool, I don’t really know how
Gotta make sure that the dream stays a dream now

TINY DOOR

I caught the light in my glass
and poured in your eyes
a moment unguarded
inspired the rewrite
the role it was perfect
you played it just fine
and I don't think I noticed the others arrive
i don’t think i noticed the others arrive
with skin on the line

Share a drink on the porch
and watch things ignite
with melodies flowing
and fire on your side
rewrite if you want to
just change the next line
a stolen kiss backstage
is frozen in time
a stolen kiss backstage
can see it still fine
now frozen in time

So I laugh in my gin
and slide out of sight
we capture the image
and held to the light
caught ice paper lightning
as bodies aligned
disarmed and afraid
but alive like the night
disarmed and afraid
but alive like the night
I dream the rewrite

WONDERFUL TONIGHT

It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me, Do I look all right?
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go to a party and everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady that's walking around with me
And then she asks me, Do you feel all right?
And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight"

I feel wonderful because I see
The love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize how much I love you

It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head. So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed, and then I tell her, as I turn out the light
I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight
