All I Wanted

Hey, don't come around this way
I'll be begging you to stay
I hate that we're estranged
But baby tonight
Oh tonight I feel okay
And I need this to remain
So the rest can blow away
That's all I wanted

I used to drive you home
Now I can't get you alone
All this pride that I've swallowed
And you'll just forget tomorrow
I just never could hold on 
For more than a moment
Well I guess I should know this
But I have just lost another one

Hey, don't come around this way
I'll just beg you to stay
Abhorred you seemed okay
But baby tonight
I'm feeling so estranged
And I need this to remain
And the rest be done away
That's all I wanted

I used to drive you home
Now I can't get you alone
All this pride that I've swallowed
And you'll just forget tomorrow
I just never could hold on 
For more than a moment
Well I guess I should know this
But I have just lost another one
I have just lost another one
I have just lost another one

 

Wherever You Go

It started when you cut my throat
And told me just how this would be the last thing
I would ever feel worth noting, now
You've gone around trying to find the next thing
That you're gonna kill just to feel something
How is it that every time I think I've got it figured out
I'm still the one who ends up sinking down
It's stealing all your thunder
I'm not losing any slumber
But it's got me thinking

Oh, wherever you go
Wherever you go
I don't wanna know

Oh, wherever you go
Wherever you go
I don't wanna know

There it was and there it goes
You thought that I was hiding
But my eyes were on the trigger
And you're never gonna figure it out
In weakness let it burn in my mind for a while
But it's come to mean nothing

I'm just trying to make my way
And live my life
You are not worth a single day
I'm gonna be someone
I'm gonna be someone

Oh, wherever you go
Wherever you go
I don't wanna know

Oh, wherever you go
Wherever you go
I don't wanna know

Oh, wherever you go
Wherever you go
I don't wanna know

Oh, wherever you go
Wherever you go

 

Too Much

I never thought I'd be back here again
But then again you always told me we would never act the same as them
Come to mine, stay the night 
But don't fall asleep
It feels so wrong, feels so wrong
But it's just like me

And by the time we meet
You're always so complete
Too much to come between
Too much 

I never thought I'd be back here again
But then again you always told me we would never really be together in the end

I just can't help myself 
And soon you're gonna have to tell
If you're in love with someone else just lie to me
I can't quite figure out
Just what this has been all about
And don't you sometimes wonder why

Every time we meet
You're always so complete
Too much to come between
Too much 

I just can't help myself 
And soon you're gonna have to tell
If you're in love with someone else just lie to me
I can't quite figure out
Just what this has been all about
And don't you sometimes wonder why

Every time we meet
You're always so complete
Too much to come between
Too much

 

Let You Down

I’m tipping the scale back to weigh down on you
I sit around with your ghost, look what you’re turning into
Same house, same room but everything’s changed
Though I guess we never meant for this to stay

Trust me
I’m holding you close so you won’t speak
I know that you’re thinking about me
Well I’ll only let you down slowly, slowly
And holding
Onto the feelings you’ve shown me
Don’t mean that you’ve come to know me
You’ve only let me down slowly, slowly

Oh I could never find the words to say
I’m sedated cos I haven’t slept for days anyway
And I don’t need it all right now
But you’ve got time to break me down

Trust me
I’m holding you close so you won’t speak
I know that you’re thinking about me
Well I’ll only let you down slowly, slowly
And holding
Onto the feelings you’ve shown me
Don’t mean that you’ve come to know me
You’ve only let me down slowly, slowly

 

Better

It came undone, it must be in there
A broken mind that’s somehow aware
Another drop, another cold stare
An empty door that leads to nowhere

But it’s never gone
You should’ve known better
You should’ve known better
It’s never gone
You should’ve known better
You should’ve known better

It’s all wrong
This line is broken, they can’t control it
But I will
It won’t be long, you’re losing focus
They’ll never notice, but it turns you around
And it gets you on
And it brings you down
When it lets you off

But it’s never gone
You should’ve known better
You should’ve known better
It’s never gone
You should’ve known better
You should’ve known better

 

Violet

It starts with me
Always stays with me
I keep chasing the facts
I keep wanting it back
Nice to see
Nice to see you in there
What I need
I never got from me

I've stumbled so long
Like a ball on a horse track and
I've never belonged like I do
Like I do now
I've done it all wrong
So much burned light and passed time 
But those moments have gone
Since you pushed me to your right, and...

I'm done with me
So done with being lonely
Punishing the ones who least deserve it
We could be
We could be onto something
You and me
We could be

I've stumbled so long
Like a ball on a horse track and
I've never belonged like I do
Like I do now
I've done it all wrong
So much burned light and passed time 
But those moments have gone
Since you pushed me to your right, and...

Eyes roll to the back of my head
But it's a good thing
I don't remember what was said
But this is where it always needs to be

 

Cornerstone

So I found out the hard way
Hard to know how to feel when you’re gone away
Did he tell you he missed you?
Didn’t mean it, he loved you anyway
You just stayed

This is more than virtue
I guess that sight was the cornerstone

Don’t you feel like they played you?
Took that time, crushed your mind and just let you bleed
Walked free
Know that I’m here to save you
But it kills just to think that you couldn’t see
What you mean

This is more than virtue 
I guess that sight was the cornerstone

Let’s not talk of what you deserve
Cos you’ll never know but you do so well
We can cover what you think you’ve learned
But the things you keep are the things that burn
I can save you
I’ll save you
If I can save you
I’ll save you

This is more than virtue
I guess that sight was the cornerstone
And I think that’s not you
But you walk like you’ve never known
