It's a choice
to stay
It's a dream
& I wanna wake

You have blood on your hands
and I'm feeling faint
And honey
You can't decide

I'm a drug
Ya don't wanna give up
Smoke your cigarettes
Make your love

You poured blood in my heart
and I can't get enough
I'm drowning, drowning
and you can't decide

It's not about geography, or happenstance
you need to fly, & take a chance
You don't need to soar to emptiness
Float on high, & forever dance alone

Your scared, scared, scared
cuz I feel like home

Hear your voice
Knew right away
If you were here
your eyes would say

There is blood on my feet
as I'm walking away
Rivers are red
Its starting to rain

I'm not gonna live for you
or die for you
Won't do anything anymore for you
Cuz you leave me here on the other side
You leave me here on the other side

(repeat 3 more times)

Not gonna shed one more tear for you
shed one more tear for you
I'm not gonna shed one more tear for you

At least not til Sunday Afternoon
Sunday Afternoon

Leave or Stay
Leave or Stay

Colbie Caillat: ....Soon...

Do you hear me,
Talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying

Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair

though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

"such a lucky guy...PJ and Tori...lol..:)"

The record goes
From blue to gold
So thank you for all your help
Ah oh oh
I know you want
To jump around
But try to contain yourself
You always struck me as the type to take it lightly
But now you're gonna have to shut your mouth and fight me

Oh
Backstabber
Backstabber

You're all alone
You're all over
The popular magazines
Ah oh oh
Will never care
Why do you care?
You're down with the Japanese
But you've got no right to sit there saying I abuse it
When you only sleep with girls who say they like your music

Oh
Backstabber
Backstabber
Backstabber
Backstabber
Backstabber
Backstabber
Backstabber
Backstabber

Backstabber! Hope grabber!
Greedy little fit haver!
God I feel for you, fool
You shit lover! Off-brusher!
Jaded, bitter joy crusher!
Failure has made you so cruel, you

Rotten to the core
Rotten to the core

Rotten like a crack whore
Egging out the back door
Show us what you're good for
Post it to the noise board
Come on, join the bloodsport
Show us some support
Still working at the drugstore
Is it because you're
A fucking

Backstabber?!
Hope grabber?!
Greedy little fit haver?!
God I feel for you, fool
You shit lover!
Off-brusher!
Jaded, bitter joy crusher!
Failure has made you so cruel

So don't tell me what to write
And don't tell me that I'm wrong
And don't tell me not to reference my songs within my songs

Oh oh
You backstabber! (Backstabber, backstabber, backstabber)
You backstabber!
Backstabber!
Hope grabber!
Greedy fucking fit haver!
Backstabber!

"..."

Waking up today
It was cold out
There's something I should say
But I can't get my head around
The bends in your brain
And your elaborate pain
Makes me tired

As an old balloon
I hold my breath
Like a penance paid too soon
And with too much eagerness
To know what is true
When air is changed by you
Makes it hollow

I don't know
Where it comes from
Where to go
When the rains come
When the rain...

Put me back in the bottle
Where the sea meets the sun
Where the bones and their rattle
It don't mean anything to no one
And I, I had a swing
When my soul was my own
I had my teeth bared for battle
Til love lost made me dull
It made me dull
It made me dull

Put me back in the bottle
Where the sea meets the sun
Where the bones and their rattle
It don't mean anything to no one
And I, I had a swing
When my soul was my own
I had my teeth bared for battle
Til love lost made me dull
It made me dull
It made me dull

Elliott Smith - Between The Bars covered by Emily Haines

Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won't but you might
The potential you'll be that you'll never see
The promises you'll only make
Drink up with me now
And forget all about the pressure of days
Do what I say and I'll make you okay
And drive them away
The images stuck in your head

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Drink up baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there with your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught
Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
Keep you apart, deep in my heart
Separate from the rest, where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Radiohead- no surprises covered by Marissa Nadler...:)..

Origin: Boston, MA, United States
Genre: Folk, indie-rock, dream pop
Years active: 2000- present

A heart that's full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won't heal

You look so tired and unhappy
Bring down the government
They don't, they don't speak for us

I'll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide
With no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
Silent
Silent

This is my final fit
My final bellyache
With no alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises, please.

Such a pretty house
And such a pretty garden
No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises
