Learn the words...

from the If Tomorrow Never Came EP

Last Summer
do you know how much time it took you
build the nerve to finally call you
only to find out,
that you had gone far away.
there was something I held onto,
you're gone, so what can I do?
just to see your face
would make it all ok
you left me last summer (i wonder)
is there something I forgot to say?
now I am left here to suffer
do you feel the same way?
and now I find out
that I can't make it here on my own
so tell me when did I
lose control?
what have I done?
you can find I'll be gone for a while
every day I watch you walk by,
and every sencond just seemed to fly by
lost in the thought
of you and I eternally
crushed again I start to pray
some day you will finally come back
do you realize
what you meant to me?
(gone for way too long)
 
If Tomorrow Never Came
I thought I'd never change
I guess it wasn't true
the roles that we both played
sometimes I still live inside you
if tomorrow never comes
if this whole world falls apart
then I just want to know
what's inside my heart
look at me now,
something inside has shifted
that's why I beseech you
realize I have changed
realize that you got
what you wanted!
and so it seems that I
have left you all behind
and I hope that you'll move on
another lesson learned in time
because it's true in time you'll grow
no one stays the same
and if you live the life you choose
you have only yourself to blame
accept the fact
that-we will move on and never
come back, the way we were
you got what you wanted
 
Note to Self: City Park, 2pm
I've got it written on my habd
city park at 2:00
a lonely bench awaits
where in the world are you?
clouds are coming in
grey skies that were blue
cover this small town
now that it's left without you
and I await
a time when we feel safe
and we're not on our way down
farther now because I'm getting fed up
dishearted let's go on (I'm going to find a way)
this is how we get through must have called you 1,000 times
only to ring through
you said you would be around
words canbe so untrue
you told me not to worry
there is no reason to worry
who's worried?
I'm worried
 
I Could Be the One
there once was a time
I thought I knew
where i stood with you
we were young
you were just a friend
but that all had to end
suddenly you were this girl
that I didn't know
and I was a boy in love
and something inside me
kept me from telling you
that I could be the one
and I know
it will be hard
just take my hand
and  I will show you
so come on
give me a chance
cause I could be the one
now it seems that if
we're all getting stuck here
without a care in the world
where did that young boy go now?
where is that little girl?
inside me I trust it
not knowing the way to feel
and I don't even know why
and so I find myself
shying away tonight
you said you wanted more
and I know
it will be hard
just take my hand
and I will show you
so come on
give me a chance
'cause I could be the one
I could be the one
 
Cloak and Dagger
Found out that what I read
was covered in your lies
haven't listened to a word I said
and now it's your turn demise
because I wasn't right!
 
Some Kind of Wonderful
another day
waking up to find myself in the same way
feeling homeless, and helpless, this world's heartless
take some time and watch these problems drift away
I'm here to stay
who are you to put me in this situation?
what can you do that's going to help me now?
when did you learn to care about no one?
where can I got tonight? and that's why...
what you do is going to echo in our lives
don't take what they say
and let it lead to your own demise
because soon you're going to find yourslef out
on your own (on my own)
don't let them make you believe
you're just another tragedy
fame and too
little trust, no common sense
will be the death of you
departed, it's over before it's started
I neede a little help
and that was plain to see
you never melt with me
 
This Day and Age
it all started when
all was lost and found
the wrong way out of this town I'm out
susceptible to those lies
past that now I have had enough
I've been let down too many times to be here now
and waste away another day
like another wasted saturday
so do i have to worry
when I'm hearing some sad story
about what you're doing with your life now?
or should U sit and pretend
that we never really were friends?
it's over now
all's been lost when you're found
head down against the ground
I'm out
there's a reason for red swollen eyes
past that now I (chorus)
at all as I recall
that's not the way it's supposed to be
through it all
you let me down sometimes
but i never drowned you out
watch you fall
and break down
do you sustain now? 

The Easy Way Out
 
Responsible

i took my home over
come on in and let's destroy
all the things my parents worked hard for
just because we're bored
feel free to bring your friends
even all the ones that i don't know
let's try to get some girls over
so we can all show off

don't worry about
growing up tonight
keep your manners at the door
and things will be just fine
and sing me a song
about being young
when things get too hard
just run away

running away
running away
running away
running away
from all responsibilty, yeah!
running away
running away
running away
running away
run away....

don't worry about
growing up tonight
keep your manners at the door
and things will be just fine
and sing me a song
about being young
when things get too hard
just runaway

pass up all the things
you have to do
call in sick to work
and play hookey from school
we'll get into my car
cause we'll drive far away from here
with you i'll run away
away
far away
away
with you i'll run away
with you i know
run away with you
i can run away with you
i will run away with you

Time Spent Sick

time spent sick
you led me to water
then you left me me drown
i've come back who's sorry now?
sorry you wasted your time
time spent sick and all alone
so i picked you up and took you home
keep in mind
that i saved you this time

so sad that its such a big part of you
without it i wonder where you will be
better off then you are now
you know its true
truent to your self, so lazy

so sure yet so phoney
now bored and left lonely
i still see you
once in awhile
sunken eyes, twisted mind,
slack jawed, broken smile
i wave to you
as you walk on by
a slap in the face
a good kick in the ass
it's been coming to you
for a long time past
past that now
im free to move on with my life


Sorry State

i wasted now
i think of you
why do i promote
such self abuse?
what should have been
what we could have said
doesn't matter now
hit the road instead

shut down
back out
refuse to let you see
inside
my heart is weak
and oh so hazy

confused me for
the guy next door
i saw your hand
then felt the floor
crawled inside
to apologize
you threw me out
and then shut the door

run out
break up
the sorry state i'm in
all hope
is gone
cause you think i'm a big wimp

Un-Impressed
 
tune in
turn on
drop out
im gone
left to rot
in someone elses mistakes
generalized as
un-impressed
have i been classified?
to a generation
born to break
you won't get me down
cause i know that you
have been here before me
yeah i know it's true
you've made your mistakes
so let me make mine
in time i'll stop being
so un-impressed
tune in
turn on
drop out
im gone
left to rot
in someone elses mistakes
generalized as
un-impressed
have i been classified
to a generation
born to break
you won't get me down
cause i know that you
have been here before me
yeah i know it's true
you've made your mistakes
so let me make mine
in time i'll stop being
so un-impressed
you won't get me down
cause i know that you
have been here before me
yeah i know it's true
you've made your mistakes
so let me make mine
in time i'll stop being
so un-impressed
stop being so un-impressed
 
Growing Apart
growing apart
shut down
you turned us off

threw us all out
cleared off the floor
left us wanting more
and you know it ain't right
you said it was o.k.
to play here tonight
to act in the same way
we do all the time
now you've changed your mind
put us in the cold
it must suck growing old
at home,
i still sit alone
i can't live a lie,
i'm still a kid inside
i will grow up in time
here we go
and you say
the time has come
for me to give up
and stop this pretend
or we're at an end
and there must be a way
for things to get better
than it was here today
i damn near upset her
with the way that i am
the way that she wants me to be
i worry too much
oh, love's such a crutch
at home
i still sit alone
i can't live a lie
i'm still a kid inside
i will grow up in time
let me go
i won't grow apart
 
Blind Deaf and Dumb

take me by the hand
help me understand
this world that i've been born into
fill me up with lies
dont you know it's true?
we were born to bleed
red and blue

take a seat, listen up
i know we screwed up
you've got to listen
to your elders
give me something to respect
or i shall reject
my d-generations anthem

you drown me out with
your patriotic non-sense
you try and tell me
how this is your land
but this time i wont be
the one to fall back
for once in my life
i'm gonna take a stand

i refuse to beleive in
a life filled with greed
the structure of society
time passes me by
and i wonder why
we are so blind
that we can't see

blind, deaf, and dumb america
we are all so
blind, deaf, and dumb

now that i've made my case
throw it back in my face
as if it mattered
my minds already been shattered
by all the things i've seen
you do to your fellow man
you disgust me
all you say is trust me

be all that you can be
destroy all you see
as if you mattered
now its us against us
the greed overcomes
cause we are all
blind, deaf, and dumb

Home Town

home town
so cold tonight
outside i
stare up at
another endless sky
tomorrow i will leave
this town for good, for now
isn't it so damn funny
how these things work out?
i've said it all
my last good-bye
remembering all
those times when i
was sure of my self
and my place in this life
out of shelter
i find myself alone tonight

i'm staring back at you
as i start to drive away
the distance grows and i realize
that i am gone, to stay this time
i left my home town now
i'm wondering when all is said
and all is done
will you still be the one
to drag me down?

so cold tonight
outside i
stare up at
another endless sky
tomorrow i will leave
this town for good, for now

my last good-bye
remembering all
those times when i
was sure of my self

it's so hard to drive away
the distance grows and i realize
that i am gone, to stay this time
i left my home town now
i'm wondering when all is said
and all is done
will you still be the one
to drag me down?

you drag me down
you drag me down
you drag me down, yeah, yeah, yeah, you!
