Paper mache houses build them up with nothing else tell me what the sound is Telephone keeps ringing out heard them in the next ro om don't know whose side was wrong I really hope it stops soon Or someone turn the TV on Talking to your best friend Never knew your middle name Stay until the show ends Or at least until the latest train Held the bottle like a baby Protect it till we got back home Drank upon the rooftops And wonder where the city's gone CHORUS Wake up wake up wake up Why don't you take a little time to breathe it in Don't try to tame the sun but you could try to feel it on your skin Could of let the whole world just hold me back I'm steady making choices from the life I had Can't we just talk about it I know that we can work this out Talk around in circles Speak until we both get tired Look up at the street lights And wonder how the world is wired Pressure makes me slee py Avoid the stuff at every cost Wind up at the same spot And relish in the time we lost Chorus x2

Comin' Down 03:22
Baby lives for the weekend Really hope she finds it Someone get my lipstick We can leave in a minute I don't got time to make plans for you mama Leave you right where you stand Make sure the money's still in your pocket What's that in your hand CHORUS I feel alright when I'm coming down Still stuck inside this one horse town My feet are sunk into the ground I feel alright when I'm coming Ain’t got money for the ride home Really hope he finds some Drink until we fall out Baby why’s my face numb I don't got enough to make it through this winter Ship myself back home Don't know if I can make it through this mama Make it on my own Chorus x2

Two Moons 04:01
Oh look at me Show me your hands and maybe I can get to know you better Talking is cheap I bet you say nothing and they all think you’re real clever Everything comes back in waves and the beauty it was frightening Permanent smile We sat for a while and it struck us both like lightning CHORUS Two moons desert stars and eyes I was lost there I was hypnotized I thought that nobody could see all of the things that I see But she grabbed me by the hand She s tarted looking at me When we were young I bet we were better than we ever could remember Probably more fun Digging up worms with all our dreams of getting bigger With air in our lungs We talked about stars and how they’re dead before they got here Someth ing that was gone for forever but it still shines so clear CHORUS Two moons desert stars and eyes I was lost there I was hypnotized I thought that nobody could see all of the things that I see But she grabbed me by the hand She started looking at me We’l l don’t blink end up missing your life Some are faster than the others so it’s best not to try Well cut your losses I can tell when I’m beat Well I’d walk a million miles just to fall down at your feet I was lost on a path Couldn’t find what I had I was stuck in your head Desert eyes looking back X2 CHORUS Two moons desert stars and eyes I was lost there I was hypnotized I thought that nobody could see all of the things that I see But she grabbed me by the hand She started looking at me We’ll don’t blin k end up missing your life Some are faster than the others so it’s best not to try Well cut your losses I can tell when I’m beat Well I’d walk a million miles just to fall down at your feet

Are you golden? Are you mine? He’s not worthy Of all your time Little sister She's a liar Said she caught me running wild CHORUS Turn on up your radio You can listen to me sing I don't need your money baby I will sing to you for free Always sing for free For girls like you Well I love you - You're a mess Were you drinking - Too much I guess Your excuses - I forget Surprised you haven't left me yet I almost got it right I never should have screamed at you that night I almost got it right I never did, I never did you right CHORUS Turn on up your radio You can listen to me sing I don't need your money baby I will sing to you for free Morning's coming quickly Darling that's my time to leave I don't need your money baby I will sing to you for free Always sing for free For girls like you

Hush when the walls start to shake Speak in some foreign language Oh but you trust when she weeps She’s got that real anguish Push from the tongue through the teeth Chop up and give us something You can just tell when he speaks He’s not the second coming We want the first one They want the real thing We want the first one Taste of a real king CHORUS Blasphemy Is it blasphemy There ain’t one clean soul down here Blasphemy If you’re asking me I can see that one pretty clear The real king is here Just cause he walks where he walks Don’t mean that ground is sacred I’ve seen this magic before Certain that they all faked it Tales from a hungrier mouth Way more than gold and silver Like songs that your grandmother sang Sometimes I still hear We want the first one They want the real thing We want the first one Taste of a real king CHORUS x 2

B elieve in me believe whatever Don't tell nothing but the time Everything you said was clever Nothing more than never mind Not much of hell inside your hellos Nothing good about goodbye The wind it blew the building bellowed A song I wish that I could write A song I wish that I could write CHORUS I can't believe how this ended up Happy to be here I can't believe how this ended up Headstrong - no fear Forgive, forget or get the hell out Time to practice what you preach I never once have met a sellout No o ne gives it up for free This push and pull has made my hands hurt Hard to stand up on my feet This give and take has taken hard work Hard for you and hard for me Hard for you and hard for me

Maybe you're my maker Maybe you’re my best f riend Waist deep in muddy water Wash me off - Then take me in Could have been my wake up call Could have been my only one Cried so much when you left Love you to death when you get home You’re mine Cause you're mine Cause you’re mine You're mine Cause yo u’re mine Cause you’re mine CHORUS Maybe you love me Maybe you don't I'm just here holding on Maybe you love me Maybe you don't I'm just here holding on Still scared of the sunshine Still worried about it coming up Big world outside my gate And every d ay you lock it up Oh darlin’ I need you Like the air I'm breathing up I wanna tell you that I miss you Need you and then some o Only one that I trust Only one that trusts me You know that I won't Bite Even though I might show my teeth Quit pulling on my st rings Baby can't we just walk along Let's just enjoy this place Happy you had me for so long Chorus X2

Moonlight midnight Haunts us like ghosts Consume this room Masquerade as the host Distrust messed up like Crashed cars off the coast Come back all wet and Clinging to hope CHORUS We can make this last forever Come help us if you can Happ iness ain’t hard to capture Just don’t let go again Hallways this place All smell like smoke Choked up Words stuck Inside my throat They said his head is cluttered and broke Shifting and risky like Storms when their close Chorus x 3

Fool's Gold 02:55
Fools gold in the garden Tend to me now Lost words, hardened Turn to stones in my mouth Desperate moments Lost in the crowd Life spent wishin' I was there with you now I could wait all night for you But I just don't know what it's worth I could wait all night for you I'll bring you back down to earth Child's play, someday You can grow up and go Out late always Some things I'll never know Pity you missed me When I came through your town Time moves so slow Hate when you're not around I could wait all night for you But I just don't know what it's worth I could wait all night for you I'll bring you back down to earth I could wait all night for you But I just don't know what it's worth I could wait all night for you I'll bring you back down to earth

Show us a town and lay waste to it Show him exactly what patience meant Don't mind the distance don't mind the cost Just tell the driver to drop us off Never quite knew what you'd become Grow up soft and toughen up Grandma said you are heaven sent Then ask you if you knew what heaven meant I wanna change this body I wanna paint my face up Wish I could stand up for you But I'm not that tough CHORUS All I have I have because you Too much light for this whole world to lose Bless yourself that's all that you can do All I have I have because of you Always watching what you say Look around make sure it's safe Never quite have been yourself Always felt like someone else It gets better every day Grow up fast and move away Wish I was there so I could hel p Cause I couldn't do that by myself I wanna change this body I wanna paint my face up Wish I could stand up for you But I'm not that tough CHORUS All I have I have because of you Too much light for this whole world to lose Bless yourself that's all you can do All I have I have because of you
