You'll always have more plans than memories now that the summer breeze cuts through the cemetery trees. And I'm falling asleep You're gonna hate me All the nights, all the streets, lead to the hospital sheets. Did you really wanna be with me? I can't believe you wanted to be with me And I'm falling asleep now I'm falling asleep now I'm falling asleep now I'm barely falling asleep now. All those friends now they're leaving you They laughed at all the silly things you wanted to do I'll move away down to the west coast I'll leave today. I'll be that cliche Did you really wanna be with me? I can't believe you wanted to be with me I'm falling asleep now I'm falling asleep now I'm falling asleep now I'm barely falling asleep now. Did you really wanna be with me? I can't believe you wanted to be with me. And I'm falling asleep now I'm falling asleep now I'm falling asleep now I'm falling asleep now.

Somewhere beyond the horizon's where you'd like me to be But we're still here another year Someday we'll finally be free Between the bars you'll watch the stars and tell him about how you still love me. And you can tell by your eyes that you've already betrayed me. Please, please don't take her from me. She'll come around, she's always waited for me. Please, please, don't take her from me. I always fall into the folds of her sheets. Just don't confused my love and my feelings for you It's not romance but circumstance but surely I adore. Let's clear the air, My four-foot stare is likely to betray you I've seen it all. I've been around and I get lonely too. Please, please don't take her from me. She'll come around, she's always waited for me. Please, please, don't take her from me. I always fall into the folds of her sheets. Please, please don't Please, please don't Please, please don't Please, please don't. Please, please don't take her from me. She'll come around, she's always waited for me. Please, please, don't take her from me. I always fall into the folds of her sheets. Please, please don't Please, please don't Please, please don't Please, please don't.

Now that you've got money, darling, you feel the same. You'll find unhappiness between MLK and Main. Sleeping in your shoes, you stumbled home and now you're all alone. You're the drunken baby doll, you're acting like you're fully grown. That's the world tonight Yeah, that's the world. I'd trade you all my friends and lovers to make it like before Yeah, all those friends and lovers Who'd sooner show you the door. Screaming out your blues, Forgive the booze, and all the "fuck you's" You're the teenage drama-queen Who's 23 and on her knees That's the world tonight Yeah that's the world.

Jamie, never thought I would sing to you play the songs that you wanted me to Never thought I'd make you cry. Jamie, never said what I wanted to Never said what I needed to You never let me apologize. You and I we surely changed, Sometimes it's hard to get it right But I'm strong enough without you, darling, Everything will be alright. Jamie, tell me, would I lie to you? Jamie, never thought I'd move in with you Never thought I could be your news You hung me out to dry Jamie, never thought I would sing to you Play the song that you wanted me to I simply walked away Bad is the easiest luck, Sometimes it's hard to get it and I'm strong enough without you, Everything will be alright. Now, tell me, yeah, Jamie, tell me, would I lie to you? Jamie, tell me, would I lie to you?

You called me first and that's all I remember Besides the usual things, the "heys" and "how's it goings?" Passing someone in the mall, "Hey what happened?" "Samantha likes her pills and the Hollywood Hills." and the Hollywood Hills Tell me the truth, is it me or is it you? I've done all I can I still go crawling back to you. Crawling back to you. You called me first and that's all I remember Besides, of course, the usual things that never really seem to matter Like the color of your hair Or the depth of your stare. Samantha and her pills. And the Hollywood Hills. Tell me the truth, is it me or is it you? I've done all I can I still go crawling back to you. Crawling back to you.

I woke up on the sunny side of lonlinest Now I'm alone but lately I've been alright And I can safely say that you're no longer a problem these days. Though you still linger just like you always did. Go ahead and marry him. I left you when that's what you said you wanted The years miles don't seem so far right now. Falling in love all over again just to be your friend If given the chance of course I'd do it again Go ahead and marry him. Just go ahead.

I wake up weird Stuck in the middle of the night I've got a brand new song to keep me, warm tonight. I'm falling asleep, against the window pane. It's been a long time coming now, It's been a long ride home. Don't see you lately weep and moan. Singing "I love you" on the radio. I'll see you again In a month or two I just don't know what to do Just what do I do? I come too soon You're still in your dress There's another man in my bed and I fucking mess. Singing "I love you" on the radio.

Mary left me the house and three kids, Took her life, yeah, and everything with it. You move to the west coast, It's the same as the east coast. Running around, yeah, following your ghost. Tell me what you want and, baby, if it's good, I'll give you all the things that I know I should. I miss you most in the morning. Come this time next year, baby, I'm still mourning. I give you my life and I was happy with it. You spend six years, yeah, Find you don't know shit I know deep down, I was a good man I know, I know, I know, I know I was the best man Tell me what you want and, baby, if it's good, I'll give you all the things that I know I should. I miss you most in the morning. Come this time next year, baby, I'm still mourning.

So many things to show to you Years' worth of work and tapes full of songs And a head full of memories Conversations of loneliness and the feeling of being uncomfortable I wonder what my life might have been Don't be scared There's no answer So how are you? There's no answer. There's no answer. Hoping you're sober and right while watching Thirteen Yeah, we were that age. Yeah that old hollywood cliche. Everything I said was wrong Everything you said was right Is that what you thought love was for? Don't be scared There's no answer So how are you? There's no answer. There's no answer.

I remember, I remember everything Watching movies, waiting on the rain. and I plans for a mediocre life… good ones too They disappeared the day that I met you An ordinary life. Meet me in the middle at a barbecue This paint by numbers life is coming true Somedays I hate everything you do. Can you believe I'm still in love with you? An ordinary life. Yeah I'm still in love with you.
