I never cared about doing things the wrong way even if I knew it bothered you I never learned how to do things the right way The pleasure in the way my ways annoyed you I never could take joy in hurting someone That was the old me; that's not me now I only want to give you tea and breakfast I only want to tell you what's allowed But look again. The misery's knocking on our door I should be busier. I never seem to get anything done I cannot bring myself to walk in the park without you The clouds are moving fast tonight. There's just something about it You always want what you can't have. You like to work for it You're in denial, but I talk too much about what's going on I miss the fluttering, anticipating notes and pretty things And any room that's empty, we can fill it all up I never cared about doing things the wrong way even if I knew it bothered you Everyone knows sometimes people falter But that's all they do is play pretend You always want what you can't have. You like to work for it You're in denial, but I talk too much about what's going on I miss the fluttering, anticipating notes and pretty things And any room that's empty, we can fill it all up But look again. 'Cause misery's knocking on our door I should be busier. I never seem to get anything done I cannot bring myself to walk in the park without you The clouds are moving fast tonight. There's just something about it And we can fill it all up

Costume 02:42
You are sitting in your livingroom Lipstick & a costume Papers at your feet Coffee in your hand The television's on But you never watch You placed against a grey sky Hand up to shield your eyes I told you 'bout the magic But you never answered The kettle is on now I fall asleep alone But I still have a side It changes time by time The kettle is now on I fall alseep alone The television's on But you never watch

Oh I think you're really cool. You go out alot. You're touching everyone. And I could touch you if I wanted. I could even go to your apartment. Staying up until the morning. Now waking up, I just want to go home. But it feels like I'm on tour in my own home, in my own city. We can hold hands if we want but it won't mean much to me and it won't mean much to you because my heart belongs to him And if you try to break me up It won't work 'cause I don't care enough. I can kiss you in October, but my lips belong to him You know it is all a waste of time to forget the love we had because it's never gonna leave our minds We can be heroes but only if we're separated Only if we're miles apart Because we know that we can take it Oh I think you're really cool. You're so nice to me when I see you at parties And I could have you if I wanted. I could even go to your apartment. Staying up until the morning. Waking up, I just want to go back home. But it feels like I'm on tour in my own home, in my own city.

When you're going When you're going on your vacation Oh don't you dare, dare forget about me I challenge you Sometimes I am your slave I bring you up and then I shoot you down, down, down Crash like the waves back onto my beach Oh the side of the boat, wish I could climb up Look now, the sky is getting murky Keep your secrets safe while you still can I know that it is none of my business But I am so jealous of your new life I can't exist away from your sight I can't exist here. Oh it just doesn't feel right. It just doesn't feel right. It just doesn't feel right When you're going When you're going on your vacation oh don't you dare forget about me When you're going on your vacation oh don't you dare, dare forget about me I challenge you. Sometimes I am your slave I bring you up and then I shoot you down, down, down Crash like the waves back onto my beach The side of the boat, wish you would fall out Look now, the sky is getting murky Keep your secrets safe while you still can

Do you like to live alone on your own when things get cold? Do you like to be alone on your own, inside your home? watching the rain drip outside All the poetry you hide And now you know it was your fault You shouldn't get all that you want You've no history to write Erasing memories with new life Love so intense hidden in books You've read about it since you were ten All of this time, he was waiting to escape All of this time You know what's there You don't have to tell anyone, if you don't want all of this time, you didn't expect to win such a slippery prize Do you like to be alone on your own inside your home? Watching the rain drip outside All the poetry you hide Now you know it was your fault. You shouldn't get all that you want Love so intense hidden in books You've read about it since you were ten All of this time, he was waiting to escape All of this time You know what's there You don't have to tell anyone, if you don't want All of this time, you didn't expect to win such a slippery prize a slippery prize all of this time a slippery prize all of this time Love so intense (all of this time) hidden in books You've read (all of this time) about it since you were ten All of this time, (all of this time) he was waiting to escape All of this time

Elliot 03:59
Elliot you're taking all my time Elliot you've burned into my mind Don't you know she listens to your records every night? Finds it hard to leave the house 'cause she can't sing along then You were not a looker, but it's all about the eyes If one more person breaks her heart, she'll join your club tonight Why are all the romantics so far away? Why does this city have so many rainy days? Her mood is black and it's sharp like knife Oh Elliot, she understands your strife She sees a brick wall a well-tailored coat the fog at night you pushing in the door A man that walks with his hands put away She takes her grey eyes and she closes them Why are all the romantics so far away? Why does this city have so many rainy days? Her mood is black and it's sharp like knife Oh Elliot, she understands your strife. She understands your strife Don't you know she listens to your record every night? Finds it hard to leave the house 'cause she can't sing along then You were not a looker, but it's all about the eyes If one more person breaks her heart, she'll think think about about joining your club Think about, think about it

We could go walking through the graveyard Or the park if you prefer on a foggy or a clear night We could tell each other secrets that we have never told anyone and not trust each other very much We could believe each other's lies until we're holding hands with someone else and then we'll both disappear We were the best ones in that moment Oh, but only in those moments and only while that song was playing Do you remember everything I told you? Can you remember can you remember anything at all? Do you remember everything I told you? Can you remember Can you remember anything at all? We drink the wine that your mother left us We wear the coats of your dead relatives We drink our tea and we tell each other bad jokes We're laughing loudly so that everyone will hear us We drink the wine We could believe each other's lies until we're holding hands with someone else and then we'll both disappear We could go walking through the graveyard or the park if you prefer on a foggy or a clear night We could tell each other secrets that we have never told anyone and not trust each other very much We were the best ones in that moment Oh, but only in those moments and only while that song was playing We could believe each other's lies until we're holding hands with someone else and then we'll both disappear We were the best ones in that moment oh, but only in those moments and only while that song was playing Oh, only while that song was playing Do you remember everything I told you? Can you remember anything at all? Can you remember everything I told you? Can you remember anything at all? We drink the wine that your mother left us We wear the coats of all your dead relatives We drink our tea and we tell each other bad jokes We're laughing loudly so that everyone will hear us We drink the wine. Do you remember everything I told you? Can you remember? We drink the wine We drink the wine

Locket 02:09
When I used to travel far I used to keep it near my heart Remembering you everyday But always in my own sick way I used to keep a photograph But now it makes me sad Nobody's ever good enough My edge is too sharp for your love I lost your picture in the dust And I can't tell what I regret But when I used to travel far I used to keep you near my heart I used to keep your photograph Now it makes me sad When you find the space and time I hope you'll forgive what I've done I keep a book about our love I close the book 'cause now it's gone Now it makes me sad

Back in the old days, we had our own ways Drinking our wine and spilling the ashtrays How can you get up if you're not let up? You can do better, 'cause I already told you Living in silence Combining lust and violence Living in silence I don't want it I never did. Lust & violence. They go together better than ever Cutting our hair off putting on new tops Kissing til sunrise while the clocks all chime Walking the streets we move to the beat it's Time to move on 'cause you're always against me Living in silence I don't want it Lust and violence go together better than ever Living in silence I don't want it I never did. Lust & violence They go together better than ever. Go if you want. I won't try to try to stop you.

I took and train And thought of you I crossed the ocean to follow you And now I'm back here I don't feel blue I waited so long To get over you And I don't believe you when you say You say you don't love me I can't believe you when you say Anything I've done you damage, I've caused you pain But I promise you I'd give you anything I've done you wrong, I've caused you pain But I promise you I would say anything Look into my eyes, boy Do you think these eyes would lie? Look into my eyes, boy You can see these eyes have cried Look into my eyes, boy Do you think these eyes would lie? Look into my eyes, boy Look into my eyes I can't believe you when you say You say you don't want me I won't believe you when you say Anything I've caused you damage I've caused you pain But I promise you I would do anything I've done you wrong and I've caused you trouble But I promise you I would say anything If you would admit to me...
