Every night I’m desperate for her love to come my way I long To hear her calling my name Why don’t I pull her close and look into her eyes Say won’t You stay forever here by my side Because I want a girl To finally call my own To feel loved And never be alone No other Will do compared to you They leave me cold So don’t bother With the games you’re used to playing they’re getting old Oh lover I’ll be whoever you want me to be Just stay I promise I won’t ever let you leave Cuz I want a girl To finally call my own To feel loved And never be alone Until then I think I’m fine With being friends Not much else to do Till you see it through Not much else to do … Cuz I want a girl To finally call my own To feel loved And never be alone

Dying to write you a love song Dying to show you just how much I care Dying to right every wrong Everything will be okay I swear But the words are never there And when they come it sounds all forced and broken up Wrote down the color of your hair Your eyes your lips the things you like to wear Should have known right from the start (Should Have Known) Should have known right from the start (From the start) Should have known right from the start (Should Have Known) That this song would break your heart Six years still going strong Yeah, we’ve seen our share of wear and tear Still you let me tag along Though at times I’m hardly even there What if I’m beyond repair Maybe my heart’s all rusted shut Won’t open up But I ain’t going anywhere Let me know if you still even care Should have known right from the start (Should Have Known) Should have known right from the start (From the start) Should have known right from the start (Should Have Known) That this song would break your heart Should have known right from the start (Should Have Known) Should have known right from the start (From the start) Should have known right from the start (Should Have Known) That this song would break your heart

Isolation Shredding my head Tearing at the seams Isolation Shredding my head Been this way for years All my friends say nothing’s wrong But nothing’s right for me Thanks for looking out They keep saying nothing’s wrong But nothing’s right for me Nothing’s worth the fight Isolation Shredding my head Tearing at the seams Isolation Shredding my head Been this way for years You keep saying nothing’s wrong I wish it worked for me Wish it worked for me And you all just ramble on You’re never here for me Never here for me Isolation Holds me hostage Isolation Holds me hostage Isolation Holds me hostage

Bored of the faces I see every day The empty phrases Keeping us at bay I’m sick and tired Of going against the grain Preaching to the choir Left standing in the rain You’re there every time I close my eyes Make me crazy, baby, make me bad Don’t you remember all the fun we had You got me hooked in Can’t shake the feeling I’m losing at this game When all I hear is: Won’t you come out to play? Hold me I’m reeling Falling out of frame Kicking and screaming When no one’s left to blame You’re there every time I close my eyes Make me crazy, baby, make me bad Don’t you remember all the fun we had I know you want it, baby, take me back You’re there every time I close my eyes Make me crazy, baby, make me bad Don’t you remember all the fun we had You got me hooked in

Take me back in time Take me back to the place Where the only lines We’d never cross were the ones barely on my face We used to dream of living in LA Used to dream of going all the way Used to dream one day we get away Weak - kneed I can’t let go I’m turning monochrome Nothing to call my own A king without a throne Hopeless by design I’m like a dog without a name that never knew its place Throwing in the towel I’d go down swinging but I’m scared I’d fall right on my face Youth wasted No time to catch up Youth wasted No time to grow up Youth wasted No time to catch up Youth wasted Weak - kneed I can’t let go I’m turning monochrome Nothing to call my own A king without a throne

Life goes by In the rearview mirror Bending the flames of A near fatal crash Can't tear my eyes away I can't believe I'm pulling out of here Without a scratch Now I know Everything’s ahead of me Now I know Now I know Everything’s ahead of me Now I know (Now I know) (Now I know) Life goes by In the rearview mirror Digging my nails into The steering wheel Hold on tight I think we're getting nearer I'm taking you anywhere Anywhere but here Now I know Everything’s ahead of me Now I know Now I know Everything’s ahead of me Now I know Now I know Everything’s ahead of me Now I know Now I know I can’t make up for the years I’ve lost

I’m so over this state of mine I’d much rather try Livin’ it up in the sky But the bad dreams that haunted me Keep me up at night All the dark twisted fantasies Holding me down I’m gonna go where the sun always shines Find me on cloud nine I gotta go, sorry to leave you behind Just ain’t got, ain’t got the time I’m so done this state of mine I’m so sick and tired Of always being sick and tired All the bad dreams that haunted me Kept me up at night All the dark twisted fantasies Ready to leave them behind
