So Long 03:21
Has the love in my heart Just outdone the hate? If that's everything I've got You know I can't wait You know that was home for so long You know that was home for so long The highs are high I cannot lie The lows well we know where those go Once I let the bad times in Haven't come back down since then You know that was home for so long You know that was home for so long Oh it makes my head ache Oh it makes your heart break Oh no more should we take

write down your complaint scratch it from your head put it in a box underneath your bed and wake up angry and call it funny why do you want to be wanted by a world that only means to whore you? i try my best to be gentle but i was at the stop sign before you write down your complaint... incessantly i think at it: is my life legitimate? but in this drive-thru world of ours the thought alone sets one apart write down your complaint... and wake up still drunk and call it funny will it read in the history books only that we could not get along? it seems true and yet it seems a case of turning up the volume of what's wrong write down your complaint... and wake up hopeful (my god, not again)

You know you and me, we are not like that You know being up-front gets the back And you know I will never let you go I will never let you go Find the lovely souls amongst the waste Like a subtlety that few can taste By now you should know By now you should have guessed It's impolite to say hello In Los Angeles And you know I will never let you go I will never let you go

True 03:26
How did you not recognize All the signs of ruining lives? What you don't remember being done Is so much of what I've become And you know a true friend is Someone who knows how to hurt you Someone who knows how to hurt you The little things here and there Quickly we think they disappear But the little things are what make us Build us up and break us And you know a true friend is Someone who knows how to hurt you Someone who knows how to hurt you And you know a true friend is Someone who knows how to hurt you Someone who knows how to hurt you But doesn't You cannot treat a soul like that Every soul means something

When did you pack up the dream? And since then how has it been? You seem more at ease Or is that the look of empty? When did you pocket the dream? I will leave it better than I found it I will leave it better than I found it When did you cancel your concern Fight fire with fire Settle back and watch it burn? You look so cool and mellow What's that you keep beneath your pillow? I will leave it better than I found it I will leave it better than I found it

Uniformed we met How could I forget More holes in my heart Than Wilshire Boulevard Everything has changed For good Everything has changed Hoped it could Everything we've got Is everything we want You're a dreamer don't you know You're a pocket with a hole Come on and meet the truth The dreaminess of youth Sometimes you get so close To getting your head right, boy Everything has changed Oh, it's good Everything has changed Dreamt it would Everything we've got Is everything we want Everything has changed Oh, it's good Everything has changed Knew it should Everything we've got Is everything we want

Mayfly 04:17
Fly like the mayfly Fly like the mayfly I've only got a second, and so: You're beautiful and you need to know So fly like the mayfly A lifetime is a long time When you decide to settle My time, God it flies by Since I met her Fly like the mayfly Fly like the mayfly I don't expect to be understood That never did my heart any good So fly like the mayfly A lifetime is a long time When you decide to settle My time, God it flies by Since I met her We take and take and then we Wonder that we're not happy What's missing what can it be? Nothing means more than a kiss No nothing means more than this Not one of these shall I miss

Unloaded 04:33
I've unlooped my belt and unloaded my gun I'm worth more than that I've finally come to understand this is what it sounds like when you've got to change your daydream this is what it sounds like when you've got to change your daydream how long ought one to pay? and how long should it take? I've shelved all the pills and stoppered the bottle I'm worth more than that suicide's mollycoddle this is what it sounds like when you've got to change your daydream this is what it sounds like when you've got to change your daydream how long ought one to pay? and how long should it take? this is what it sounds like... what more can a girl expect
