Drive

If you ain’t made it now,
You’re never gonna make it
Seventeen people in the dark tonight
You see some familiar faces
Behind the cellular lights

Chi-town in the winter
Then we saw the Hollywood sign
You used to drink more than your man could
Waiting for the light
Waiting for the light
Waiting for the light

Nothing like the way it feels
Nothing like the way it feels
To drive
Still remember all the words
To every song you ever heard
Drive

All the things are still in the car
Let it freeze let ‘em crack
You slept through the day and the night and the day
and you’re never coming back
You’re never coming back
You’re never coming back

Nothing like the way it feels
Nothing like the way it feels
To drive
Still remember all the words
To every song you ever heard
Drive

1923
1923, he sent a letter, and it reached me
some things never change
be it a river, or be it your name

I called you
From another century
To see if the world had been kind and sweet
And it really seems that the shadows
Have stopped following your every beat
Baby come back to me
Baby come back to me
Baby come back to me

Oh, the strangest things are happening
To everyone round here
But somethings never change
You’re still missing from my days

Firecrackers

Firecrackers
Burned into heaven on the floor
My attackers
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me you’re looking for

July 4th of last year we spilled all the blood,
How’d you spend your summer days?
I know better now I don’t call you up at night
Cause baby you’re a ghost and I have changed

I saw your face everywhere I looked
You sat across from me
And baby I’m a ghost when you’re away
I told you all about my days
You told me where you lived

And we have drunk our summers away
We have drunk our summers away

Firecrackers
Burned into heaven on the floor
My attackers
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me you’re looking for

Saturday maybe you’ll come down to see me
And we’ll walk around
I know better now I don’t get as high
That I can’t see the leaves turn
From green to brown

We are coming back

I died when you left
Everyone said you were the righteous one
Down the streets that I walk along
Down in the house where I lock the walls
Down to the basement with my childhood charms
You came running

We are coming back
Cause everything is here
We are coming back
Cause everything is here

Seasons they pass
Everyone says you are a righteous path
Still I live
Many miles away
So I can miss you
A little every day
Back to the house
Where we lost our way
You came running

We are coming back
Cause everything is here
We are coming back
Cause everything is here

Dead City Emily

I was coming apart those days
I don’t give a damn about the way
Colors on the trees
Change from red to green
It’s a dead city Emily

O, I was ablaze
Still I had to stay
With that bed Emily

Oh I saw the light today,
Opened up the door
Any other man would have run, run away
‘Em, we’re stuck inside the war

Any other man would have run, run away
Emily he’s something more

I was coming apart those days
I don’t give a damn about the way
Birds fly in the breeze
Things you say to me
It’s a dead city Emily

I cannot recall
Loving this at all
It’s a dead city in between

Oh, I saw the light today
Opened up the door
Any other man would have run, run away
‘Em we’re stuck inside the war

Oh it looks so bright today
Opened up the door
Any other man would have run, run away
Emily he’s something more
Any other man would have run, run away
From that house and to the shore

Dead City Emily, Dead City Emily, Dead City Emily

Was It A Dream

I keep thinking it was a dream
That I hit you when you’re down
I keep changing everything
From the river to the town

Was it a dream, or something sinister
Was it a dream, or something sinister,
I got a better half inside I know you know
I got a better half inside I know you know

I keep thinking it was a dream
That you never come around
Put all the time we spent
In a box we spent

Was it a dream, or something sinister
Was it a dream, or something sinister
I got a better half inside I know you know
I got a better half inside I know you know

It’s true that I lost a year
Stumbling from room to room
Hoping I’d wake up
Somehow next to you

That I was in the mirror looking through
It’s the same world but everything is new
It’s the same world but everything is new
It’s the same world but everything is new

I’ve got your name

Changed in a rest-stop into my dress
Made sure not to touch the floor
I’ve done that kind of thing before

Drove down 95
Put on my eyes
In the rearview mirror
As I entered New York

You stopped calling out my way
You stopped calling altogether
I may be another feather
But I got your name

Riding back to Massachusetts
Couldn’t even see
From snow, the road was studded
With Christmas trees

I saw Fire
I saw Fire then
I saw Fire then

Desire

I sent my song too soon
You didn’t free me at all
And I barely needed you
When you’re driving through the towns
And you start to missing me
Through Tennessee

I had it all wrong
I was about to believe
That I could fall for you
And you had eyes for me
You’ve got it all wrong
I was about to believe
That you had desire for me

You’ve got no lines on your face
And mine are mapping out the spots where we lay
And I’m coming to see
You aint a thing like you say
As you cross LA

Anyone Else

I hardly think about you anymore
Except when I see the water and the sand on the ocean floor

All the years that I held you close
You should have been anyone else…. I know
All the years that I held you close
You should have been anyone else … I know

Sometimes the night
Brings me back to you
And I look at the time spent
Wasted on you

What a lie you are living now
You could have been somebody’s better side
What a lie you are living now
You could have been somebody’s better side

Holiday in

I called you when I was drunk all the time
Stuck on the mountain
in winter’s prime
Layin on the floor I knew
you were never mine

holed up at the Holiday Inn,
and I’d rather watch crime tv than see you again
peeled off the bed
I heard what you said
In the white screen glare

You see me and want to walk away
You got a girl waiting on a rock by the bay
Your fantasy’s gone forever
And you’ve got nothing to say

I stood on the pier waiting for you
After the show, the ships went by
Said hello but knew it was finally goodbye

You see me and you got nothing to say
You have a girl in every state
I know I’m in the way
My fantasy’s gone forever
And I’ve got nothing to say

Nothing in my heart

Oh we’re building a love song
I can’t bare to see you go
I know things aren’t the best for us
And it’s starting to show

Take a plane and I promise
To put honey in your jar
Maybe it’s the weather
But I’ve got nothing in my heart

Got into the car today
But didn’t go outside
Maybe we’re too far gone to try

Take a plane and I promise
To put honey in your jar
Maybe it’s the weather
But I’ve got nothing in my heart
