There's thieves among us, painting the walls
With all kinds of lies, and lies I never told at all

What's in my pocket, you never knew
You didn't know me well so well as I knew you

And I know and you know too
A love like ours is terrible news

But that won't stop me crying
No that won't stop me crying over you

I'm not a prophet
Old love is in me
New love just seeps right in
And it makes me guilty

Why do you look like that?
It's not all that bad
I'll see you sometime
Sometimes lonely isn't sad

And I know and you know too
A love like ours is terrible news

But that won't stop me crying
No that won't stop me crying over you
No that won't stop me crying over you

We two are makers just made this mess
Two broken hearts don't beat any less

There's thieves among us, painting the walls
With all kinds of lies, and lies I never told at all

And I know and you know too
A love like ours is terrible news

But that won't stop me crying
No that won't stop me crying over you
No that won't stop me crying over you
No that won't stop me crying over you, you, you

. . .


It's hard to be ignore
When I look at you, you look so bored
My baby, my darling, I've been taking a beating...

Well alright (well alright)
It's okay (It's okay)
We all get the slip sometimes every day
I'll just keep it to myself in the sun
In the sun

It's hard to take the blame
When I look at you, you're so ashamed
My baby, my darling, I've been thinking
Of leaving

Well alright (well alright)
It's okay (It's okay)
We all get the slip sometimes every day
I'll just keep it to myself in the sun
In the sun

Well alright (well alright)
It's okay (It's okay)
We all feel ashamed sometimes every day
I'll just keep it to myself in the sun
In the sun

Orpheus melted the heart of Persephone, but I never had yours
I followed you back to the end of the path, but I never found the door

And you can work to save your love
You can bear it from the earth below

You can work but you can't let go
Oh, oh but you have to know

Don't look back all you'll ever get is the dust from the steps before
I don't have to see you every day, but I just want to know you're there

Quietly took to the dark of the day and the hiss of the summer night
The heat of the breeze was a cell block wall and when I looked you were out of sight

And you can work to save your love
You can bear it from the earth below

You can work but you can't let go
Oh, oh but you have to know

Don't look back all you'll ever get is the dust from the steps before
I don't have to see you every day, but I just want to know you're there

And you can work to save your love
You can bear it from the earth below

You can work but you can't let go
Oh, oh but you have to know

Don't look back all you'll ever get is the dust from the steps before
I don't have to see you every day, but I just wan't to know you're there

Don't look back all you'll ever get is the dust from the steps before
I don't have to see you every day, but I just want to know you're there

Don't look back all you'll ever get is the dust from the steps before
I don't have to see you every day, but I just want to know you're there

Don't look back all you'll ever get is the dust from the steps before

Remember last summer when we had the chance
To find each other, start makin' romance?
It didn't come off, 'cause you found another
Without one hand of the clock, what good is the other?

And I can't find no true love, oh, baby, it's so hard
And I still think about you every time I'm ridin' in my car (Ridin' in my car)

So I went to the place where everybody hangs out
To see what everybody was talkin' about
And over in the corner, all alone with you
Was the boy from last summer singin' songs to you

And he can't sing what I can sing, oh, it's so hard
And I still think about you every time I'm ridin' in my car (Ridin' in my car)

When I'm home alone, I can think of other things to do
But when I'm rollin' in forward motion, I think about only you

It's been a year and a day since I talked to you
I don't know how I made it, but I sure have been blue
Every time I think of what might have been
I jump in my car and start ridin' again

And I can't find no true love, oh, baby, it's so hard
And I still think about you every time I'm ridin' in my car (Ridin' in my car)

I can't find no true love, oh, baby, it's so hard
And I still think about you every time I'm ridin' in my car (Ridin' in my car)

I like to learn things slow
I like learning a lot
I like to get it all again and in the end
You know you get what you got
I like to mean what I say
But it don't always come through
Because if I say it all again, again, again
It doesn't make it all true

And the world's like a science
And I'm like a secret
And I saw you lingering still, still
I saw you lingering still

It's all just news to me
Don't really care if it hurts
Because if I know it I won't know it
Then I know that it will only get worse
He was different at first
But then he won't understand
Because he's never going to know me
If he doesn't want to just shake my hand

And the world's like a science
And I'm like a secret
And I saw you lingering still, still
I saw you lingering still

. . .


Well I'm back in your good graces, again.
Remember when you told me that I was your only friend
well you made the best of this life where you never knew
one day from the next, dig your heels in a little girl
put them to the test
you gotta be kind to yourself.
you gotta be kind to yourself

well i heard you had the blues again
seems like all those little things add up in the end
well i know that you heard a lot about things you can't control
so many things we like to have, we just cannot hold.
you gotta be kind to yourself.
you gotta be kind to yourself.
you gotta be kind to yourself.
you gotta be kind to yourself

Uh huh, mhm
Gonna get along without you now.
Uh huh, mhm.
Gonna get along without you now.You told me I was the neatest thing,
You even asked me to wear your ring.
You ran around with every pearl in town,
You didnt even care if it got me down.

Uh huh, mhm.
Gonna get along without you now.
Uh huh, mhm.
Gonna get along without you now.

Got along without you before I met you,
Gonna get along without you now.
Gonna find somebody that's twice as cute,
Cause I didnt like you anyhow.

You told everybody that we were friends,
But this is where our friendship ends.
Cause all of the sudden you changed your tune.
You havent been around since way last June.

Uh huh, mhm.
Gonna get along without you now.
Uh huh, mhm.
Gonna get along without you now.

So long my honey,
Goodbye my dear.

Uh huh, mhm
Gonna get along without you now.

Gonna get along without you now.

You told me I was the neatest thing,
You even asked me to wear your ring.

You didnt even care if it got me down.

California is a great big nation of one
They never knew what they wanted til it was already gone
What do they do with the light in the morning when they wake up alone?
They just go home
They just go home

Youre the nicest, nicest boy Ive ever met
and then
I think about you then I think about you again
And again

Why dont we just sit and stare and do nothing?
Nothing at all for a while
I like the way you smile

I could be your state and I could be your nation
It doesnt get better than home, now does it?
Doesnt get better than home, now does it? (x3)

I could be your welcome, I could be your greeter
I could be sweet and I could be sweeter
I want to be where your heart is home (x3)

I want to see you with the light in the morning
Theres never been such a beautiful warning to me, to me
Why dont we just sit and stare and do nothing?
Nothing at all for a while, I like the way you smile

I could be your state and I could be your nation
It doesnt get better than home, now does it?
Doesnt get better than home, now does it? (x3)

I could be your welcome, I could be your greeter
I could be sweet and I could be sweeter
I want to be where your heart is home (x3)

I want to be where your heart is home...

Looking for a letter Trace it in the Sand
Nothing was lost on the way
I couldn't stay holding your hand
Hours on the sidewalk staring at the sun
Everyone is wasting away wasting the day
jumping the gun

I know it all comes full circle
it all comes crashing down on you

Hide in your heart
Chase it til the morning
Sunlight is lost in your eyes
you never tried facing these things
Walking on a circle taking staking on a stride
Faces are not what they seem
I always dream facing the tide

I know it all comes full circle,
It all comes crashing down on you

I'm gonna make it make it better
I'm gonna get the best lock it and swallow the key

I'm gonna make it make it better
I'm gonna get the best lock it and swallow the key

I'm gonna make it make it better
I'm gonna get the best lock it and swallow the key

I'm gonna make it make it better
I'm gonna get the best lock it and swallow the key

Talkin' on the phone, and watchin' Cribs
He doesn't know what kinda guy he is.
He's got a gold plated ceiling in the TV show,
A broken heart and he doesn't even know.

He's glad to see you
Yes, he's glad to see you
Open your arms and sing
The world's been waiting, they've been waiting for years
And they've just gotta hear
The kids are all waiting, they've been shedding tears
So open your arms and sing for us

World can be quiet when you're up too late
I'm just a childhood prisoner of a garden gate
If its broke, then kick it, dust yourself off
Find a quiet place and have a good laugh

I'm glad to see you
Yes, I'm glad to see you
Open your arms and sing
The world's been waiting, they've been waiting for years.
The kids are crying, they've been shedding tears
So open your arms and sing for us

Ba da da da dum
Ba da da da dum
Ba da da da dum
Ba da da da dum
Ba da da da dum....

Why do I always want to sock it to you hard?
Let you know what love is like when I'm keeping all my cards up on the shelf
Where you can't see them
Why do I always want to keep it to myself?
Taking advantage only works when you're leaving someone else out in the dark I didn't mean to
Running away from you Is just like running a business
And I'm keeping up with the games you play
Every day I've gotten over it over and over again I've gotten sick of it, a lick of it will suck me back in (repeat)

. . .


I had some brand new shoes
They were all red but they gave me the blues
And they're runnin' away, they left me a letter
It's just like you told me it'd be
It's nothin' nothin' nothin'
nothin' at all

We are all made of air
There's stars in my eyes and there's sun in my hair
And I'm runnin' away, it makes me feel better
It's just like you told me it'd be
It's nothin' nothin' nothin'
nothin' at all

When it comes down to this
I'm neither sorry nor cross nor unfit
And I'm runnin' away, there's smoke on my sweater
It's just like you told me it'd be
It's nothin' nothin' nothin'
nothin' at all

I had some brand new shoes
They were all red but they gave me the blues
And they're running away, they left me a letter
It's just like you told me it'd be
It's nothin' nothin' nothin'
nothin' at all
at all
at all

. . .


If you can't sleep
I'll be there in your dreams
I'll be there in your dreams
If you can't sleep at all

And in your dreams
I'll touch your cheek
And lay my head on your shoulder

Goodbye shadows
Goodbye shadows

You're far away
If you can't see my face
if the world is cold
but the sun shines the same

Shut your eyes
There are bluer skies
for your embrace to my heart

Goodbye shadows
Goodbye shadows

If you can't sleep
I'll be there in your dreams
I'll be there in your dreams
If you can't sleep at all

And in your dreams
I'll touch your cheek
And lay my head on your shoulder

I Knew It Would Happen This Way

[No lyrics]

. . .


Ah... Oo...

This is the way
I always dreamed it would be
The way that it is, oh
When you are holding me
I never had a love of my own
Maybe that's why when we're all alone

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city baby
Seems to disappear, oh when
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby
Whenever you're near

Loving you
It keeps me satisfied
And I can't explain, oh no
The way I'm feeling inside
You look at me, we kiss and then
I close my eyes and here it comes again

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city baby
Seems to disappear, oh when
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby
Whenever you're near

I hear the music all the time, yeah
I hear the music hold me tight now baby
I hear the music all the time
I hear the music
I hear the music (baby)

Ahh...

I can hear music
I can hear music
The sound of the city baby
Seems to disappear, oh when
I can hear music
Sweet sweet music
Whenever you touch me baby
Whenever you're near
