You are my best friend, but then you died
When I was 23 and you were 25
You are my best friend, but then you died
And how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?
Oh, how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah

Oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

I had a dream of you, you were drifting away
You were sad and the ocean dripped away
And I know you're gonna be okay
'Cause I can see it in your eyes, your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
And I know I'm gonna survive, survive, survive, survive

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah

Oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah ah-ah
Ah ah-ah, ah hah-ah-ah-ah

Darling, you can be so unforgiving,
You can be so unloving,
You can be misunderstanding
But i don't know how to feel without your love...

So tell me what to do do do do dodododo do do

It's a lovely night with the moon in the sky-e-oh

It's a lovely night with that look in your eye-e-oh

But you still sleep with your back to me.
Is me and you or is it really nothin?

O baby, i thought that you forgave me,
I thought that you still loved me,
Don't you need me...

I want it forever, (X 16)

It's a lovely night with the moon in the sky-e-oh

It's a lovely night with that look in your eye-e-oh

But you still sleep with your back to me.
Is me and you or is it really nothin?

. . .


Wake up, it's a beautiful morning
Honey, while the stars are still shining
Wake up, would you like to go with me
Honey, take a run down to the beach

Oh momma, I wanna go surfin'
Oh momma, I don't care about nothing

Wake up, there's a new kid in the town
Honey, he's moving into the big house
Remember when I was so very hopeless
Darling, he's gonna make it all better

Oh momma, I wanna go surfin'
Oh momma, I don't care about nothing

Down down baby down by the rollercoaster
Sweet sweet baby I'll never let you go
Down down baby down by the rollercoaster
Sweet sweet baby I'll never let you go

Down down baby down by the rollercoaster
Sweet sweet baby I'll never let you go
Down down baby down by the rollercoaster
Sweet sweet baby I'll never let you go

Oh momma, I wanna go surfin'
Oh momma, I don't care about nothing
Oh momma, I wanna go surfin'
Oh momma, I don't care about nothing

. . .


I know you're trying to kill me
I know you're trying to kill me
'Cause you're chasing me around town
Until I turn around
Yeah, you're chasing me around town
Until I turn around

I cannot take anymore
Do you want me to skip town
Do you want me to come 'round

I know you're trying to kiss me
I know you're really trying to kill me
'Cause you're driving me around town
In your car
You drive it off a bridge and crash it to the ground
You're following me 'round town until I turn around

. . .


You're perfect photographs on the wall
And if I know you you're ok
I don't wanna dance anymore
I don't wanna sing anymore
I don't wanna dance anymore we used to sing

I thought I'd be ok till I hit that floor
I thought I'd be fine till I needed more

I thought I'd be ok till I hit that floor
Oh, I need more I need more I need more

I thought my life would get easier
Instead its getting harder, instead it's getting harder

I thought my life would get easier,
Instead it's darker, instead it's getting colder...
Without you

My life's a book of short stories,
And we wrote a new one everyday

I don't understand anymore
You don't love me anymore
I don't understand anymore and I can't think

Why can't I let you go?
Why can't I let you go?
Hate you I wanted to hate you

. . .


We, we are in love
And we forever
We not gonna stop
We'll be forever

And all the stars in the sky
And all the flowers in the fields
And all the flower in the earth
Could never take you from my heart

And it's forever, baby it's forever
And it's forever, baby it's forever
And let me run till the end of time
Until our hearts are aligned into the sky
Run till the end of time
Until our hearts are aligned into the sky

We, we are the ones
When we're together
We, we are the young
We live forever

And all the stars in the sky
And all the flowers in the fields
And all the flowers in the earth
Could never take you from my heart

And it's forever, baby it's forever
And it's forever, baby it's forever
And let me run till the end of time
Until our hearts are aligned into the sky
Run till the end of time
Until our hearts are aligned into the sky

Forever ... and ever (repeat)

And it's forever, baby it's forever
And it's forever, baby it's forever
And let anekatips me run till the end of time
Until our hearts are aligned in the sky
Run till the end of time
Until our hearts are aligned in the sky

If you fall asleep down by the water
Baby, I'll carry you all the way home
If you fall asleep down by the water
Baby, I'll carry you all the way home

Everybody's gotta love someone
But, I just wanna love you, dear
Everybody's gotta feel something
I just wanna be with you, my dear
I know it's hard, I know it's hard
I know it's hard to be in this position
If they stop loving, I won't stop loving you
If they stop needing you, I'll still need you, my dear

If you fall asleep down by the water
Baby, I'll carry you all the way home
If you fall asleep down by the water
Baby, I'll carry you all the way home

You've gotta believe me when I say
When I say the word "forever"
And whatever comes your way
We'll still be here together
I know it's hard, I know it's hard
But I understand you, just take my hand

If you fall asleep down by the water
Baby, I'll carry you all the way home
If you fall asleep down by the water
Baby, I'll carry you all the way home

. . .


Baby, I know you hate me so
I gave you everything, why do you hate me so?

I don't feel sorry when you cry
I don't believe you when you lie
Because your eyes are always saying goodbye
Saying goodbye

Baby, you took my soul
I gave you everything, what did you give my soul?

I don't feel sorry when you cry
I don't believe you when you lie
Because your eyes are always saying goodbye
Saying goodbye

It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears

I don't feel sorry when you cry
I don't believe you when you lie
Because your eyes are always saying goodbye
Saying goodbye

It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears
It will all end in tears

. . .


I need a place to go
Yeah that's what you told me
So I went to your house
To try to find you in your room
Why can't I find you now?

Walking along tonight
Wishing you were still here
Wishing things were alright

We tried, oh yeah
We tried, and we died
Oh yeah we died
We tried, oh yeah
We tried, and we died
Oh yeah we died

We took down the icicles
The way it melts in your hand
You told me you loved me
At an age I didn't understand
I didn't understand

Where will we go when we get old?

. . .


You'd think I would know
All the answers to the questions before I get old
But I've spent too much time thinking
And I've spent too much time doing
It's time to go

And I need fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun
In my life
And I need life
In my fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun

Oh, I took a walk yesterday all around New York City
And I saw something written on a car
It said "The less you own the more freedom you have"
The less you own the more freedom you have
So I went home and I threw it all away

. . .


I wish your mind was more like your heart
Nailed shut
Looking back, can't remember too much love

Now when I fall down
When I get weak
When I grow tired
I'll never drop my sword

Tell me a sadder story
So I can fall asleep
The right way, if I knew the right away
Well, we wouldn't be here

Now when I fall down
When I get weak
When I grow tired
I'll never drop my sword

Do you think Jesus loves me?
Can I go home again?

I'm a boy.

. . .


Here I go again
Getting upset over nothing
Getting upset over your heart
Over your heart
Over your heart

And if I ruled the world
I would make every country salute you
And if I ruled the world
I'd make you be mine

And I'm always in your cage
Set me free
And you've locked me in your cage
Set me free

Here you go again
Walking away like it's nothing
Walking away from my heart
But I see your eyes at night
And you know what's wrong
And you know what's right.

The future
