Reasons To Stay Indoors

You’ll get accepted into yale
But they’ll excuse you when you fail
You’ll get a scholarship to brown
But that color brings you down
You’ll go to colgate for a year
In the fresh air up there
You’ll grow a habit hard to please
From a semester overseas

You’re really not quite well
You know that
And everyone can tell
You know the reasons to stay indoors
You don’t need anymore
you remind me of the man
I once was
And some say
I still am

You’ll land a job right out of school
While your friends do something cool
You’ll get politically involved
But your actions lack resolve
You’ll play the loner for awhile
Dressed in black and creepy vibes
You’ll stay inside for weeks on end
With imaginary friends

You’re really not quite well
You know that
And everyone can tell
You know the reasons to stay indoors
You don’t need anymore
You remind me of the man
I once was
And some say
I still am

If You Won’t Come To The Party
You wanna know
Who’s gonna go
Who’s gonna show
You wanna say
Maybe next time

You say you might
Stay in tonight
But I will say
you’re out of your mind

If you won’t come to the party
On grounds of nothing to wear
All the beautiful people
And I will be there

You wanna find
Some private time
You underline
The week has been
Grinding you down

But if you go
I’m gonna show
Just how I feel
I’m head over heels

If you won’t come to the party
On grounds of nothing to wear
All the beautiful people
And I will be there

And when I arrive
I look for your eyes
I’m hoping to see
You looking for me

——————————————————————-
Face
Everytime I look at your face
There’s a vibe that’s coming thru
Everytime you look at my face
Girl, I hope you feel it too

I could never do much harm
with you beside me
I could never go much wrong
with you to guide me

Driving into New York city
and my heart begins to soar
Driving into New York city
from a trip upstate New York

I could never get too cold
with you to hold me
I could never grow too old
for you to hold me

Like a book you forget
that you’ve recently read

Everytime I look at your face
There’s a vibe that’s coming thru

——————————————————————-
Once Upon A Year
Once upon a year
We had a boy
Our boy
Boy

Once upon a day
It started raining
No complaining
Just rain

Once upon a park
We took a walk
And talked
And talked

Once upon a house
We lived awhile
Inside
In style

I couldn’t believe it
I couldn’t conceive it

Once upon a year
We had a boy
Our boy
Boy

Once upon a road
We took a drive
To the seaside
For an ocean drive

I couldn’t believe it
I couldn’t conceive it

What I was about to say
That was not an easy thing to play
What I was about to do
Was to let you know that we both love you

——————————————————————-

The Fear List
It’s so itchy that you have to itch
It doesn’t matter if it bleeds
It’s so lonely that you lose the grip
In a momentary bliss
In a momentary bliss

Did you spill the milk
Did the milk spill
Were you late for work
Did your head hurt
Did your mind ache
Did the daybreak
Did your car stall
Did the waterfall

It’s so hurtful that you have to laugh
People ask you what it is
It’s so pointless that you wanna cry
In a momentary bliss
In a momentary bliss

Did you lose the bet
Did the sunset
Did the tide turn
Did you sunburn
Did you spill the milk
Did the milk spill
Did she run away
On a summer’s day

——————————————————————-
I Would Not Change A Thing
Everyday, down the street
Where we live
We walk, we talk
Watching each day go by

It may not seem much
From the outside in
But there you are
It doesn’t say who we are
And baby

I wouldn’t change a thing
You couldn’t change a single thing
Without it affecting everything

I wouldn’t change a thing

Every week, afternoons
Give or take
We hone our trade
Taping the songs we’ve made

And at night
When we turn out the light
Next to me
You’re watching
A late night show
And I go

I wouldn’t change a thing
You couldn’t change a single thing
Without it affecting everything

I wouldn’t change a thing

 ——————————————————————-

Paramount
Why do we always
Talk about it
Why can’t we ever scream
And shout it
‘cause I wanna feel it
Running thru my veins
Driving me insane

Why must it always be like this
Nobody else could catch your drift
Why must you always be so sure
God knows
You’ve messed up times before
Why must it always have to wait
It forces me to state
Paramount
It’s not paramount I guess

When did you whisper
To me goodnight
Didn’t you mention
It would be allright
But it’s getting harder
Hearing what you say
Hey that’s okay

Why must it always be like this
Nobody else could catch my drift
Why must you always be so sure
God knows
You’ve messed up times before
Why must it always have to wait
It forces me to state
Paramount
It’s not paramount I guess
It’s not paramount I guess

——————————————————————-
The One That Got Away
The one that got away
The one they couldn’t save
The one that had to pay
Why it has to be

The one that crossed the line
The one that saw the sign
The one that did the time
It’s way beyond me

You don’t respond to people
Who wants the best for you
It’s something that
You’re working thru
Walking by a house
Where the roof has fallen in
You say finally the stars
Can shine on in

The one that moved along
The one that set the tone
The one that came undone
Right in front of you

The one that made the call
The one that took the fall
The one that had it all
But couldn’t see it thru

 ——————————————————————-

Against The Sun
Your face
Is turned against the sun
Your mind
Is tuned to everyone
The journey
That you started on
Has just begun

The sky is clear
Without a cloud
And soon enough
You’ll find out
What that’s all about

We have thought about you
Before you could be seen
Just a little heartbeat
Going bleep bleep on a screen

——————————————————————-
Five Million Years
Hundred million years ago
The dinosaurs
That walked the earth
Were so slow
So slow
Hundred million years ahead
Luchie puts her sleepy son
To bed
To bed

Isn’t it a fact
We’ve a secret pact
You finish off my sentences
You soothe my nervous tendencies
Isn’t it a sign
When the stars align
Driving to a shopping mall
No need to buy
We have it all

Hundred million years ago
The dinosaurs
That walked the earth
Were so slow
So slow
Hundred million years ahead
She’s landing kisses
On her newborn baby’s head
Baby’s head

Isn’t it a fact
We’ve a secret pact
You finish off my sentences
You soothe my nervous tendencies
Isn’t it a life
You became my wife
I’m hiding in your atmosphere
I’m shooting thru your stratosphere

Five million years

——————————————————————-
Overgrown
And he got so low
Lower that a man in china
Jumping in the air

And so hard to know
Wether or not the end was
Drawing near

Oh well
20th century overload’s coming thru
All right
20th century overload’s getting you
And that’s so long ago now
And it’s all overgrown somehow

And it got so grey
Greyer than a monday morning
Going back to work
It was hard to say
Wether or not you’re acting
Like a jerk

Oh well
20th century overdrive’s coming thru
All right
20th century overload’s getting you
And that’s so long ago now
And it’s all overgrown somehow
