Though the wind blows And sun makes shadows Let's be careless and crass Though trouble knows the way here Be cool and stay here Flip the bird to the clouds Along the way we learned the sound Of footsteps running over ground Peace can cover us Protect and shelter us Let's run Get soaked in the open air Safe is a state of mind A place you can never find Let's crash on the rocks and scatter in the spray with the waves Along the way we learned the sound Of footsteps running over ground Of footsteps running over ground

You were born out of season No mercy no reason The cold brutal winter The icy moon glimmer on the snow In the land of your family By the lake in the country You bloomed out of nothing You always knew something else would come Take me back to that other place The sun throws shapes through the curtain lace And leaves them on the bed You're a light now a shadow A song now an echo You belong with your mother In the cool breeze of summer on the deck Where the only thing that burned you Was the sun through the willows Avocado and lemon, a little touch of cayenne On your tongue Take me back to that other place The sun throws shapes through the curtain lace And leaves them on the bed Take me back to the summer Drag me make it easier Take me back in circles of insufferable love You're a light you're a shadow babe Take me back to that other place

Go away go away there's nothing left to say You can't spin it in any other way Am I finally getting through? There's nothing left to say Go away So long so long We've been pushing way too long It's not possible that one of us is wrong We've been pushing way too hard and pulling way too long So long Oh I've known it all long I'm ready for the time of my life Farewell Farewell We don't have to scream and yell We've been waiting long enough to tell We built a house of cards and like we knew it would it fell Farewell Oh I've known it all long I'm ready for the time of my life Goodbye goodbye Let sleeping dogs lie You know that we've both lost the will to try Say I didn't treat you oh so bad did I? Say I didn't treat you oh so bad did I? Tell me I didn't treat you oh so bad did I? Did I?

Leaves are falling from the trees Rolling around in the breeze Oh I'm lost and I don't know how To find my way around anymore Remember me standing in the rain On the beach in the cold wet sand The waves were rolling in to kiss my feet you're never gonna believe it when it comes your way When I pay you back someday Waiting for the other shoe to fall Waiting for my number to be called Oh I've been waiting all this time Oh I've been waiting all my life The debts are piling up Getting by on beginners luck Blessed indecision is a way of life You're never gonna believe it when I find my way back home to pay you back Oh what a breeze Just as easy you please You float across the country and drift across the sea The ice floes and the glaciers and the distance in the way I'm gonna pay you back one day Waiting for the other shoe to fall Waiting for my number to be called Oh I've been waiting all this time Oh I've been waiting all my life

The kids are on their skateboards in the parking garage smoking right in front of the camera I went down there an hour ago but no one was around Friday night Friday night Someone threw a slurpee down the escalator I don't think they did it by mistake I thought I saw a twenty in the wishing well Friday night Friday night I love you more than ever but you're so uptight Some things that only time can fix Call me at the mall if you're not sleeping right I'll here till six Late at night is quiet but the lights are bright Coffee rings marking up the desk Dozing at the monitor my head snaps up Friday night Friday night Walkie talkie crackles through the channels Nobody at the other end I haven't said a word since closing time Friday night Friday night I love you more than ever but you're so uptight Some things that only time can fix Call me at the mall if you're not sleeping right I'll be here till six The radio, flashlight and a styrofoam cup My uniform sticking to the chair Jingle jangle keychain always wakes me up But there's nobody there

I'll tell you stories that will make your head spin About your grand-dad and his bathtub gin We've all been here before What are we looking for? I'll tell you stories that will make your head spin Bright lights stage fright There's always someone who can hit the crowd right Wake me when it's over We are all children and we need to be fed We need a grown-up to put us to bed What are we looking for? Someone to give us more? I'll tell you stories that will make your head spin Wake me when it's over What are we looking for? Someone to give us more? I'll tell you stories that will make your head spin Bright lights stage fright there's always someone who can hit the crowd right Wake me when it's over

Got turned around in bad inversions Wandered off the trail Lost and found and missing persons So far beyond the pale If you see my face on the news Singing those big city blues Don't you shed a single tear I was lost but now i'm here I made my way through unknown places made myself at home But I hardly recognized the faces least of all my own If you see my face on the news Singing the city skyline blues Don't you shed a single tear I was lost but now i'm here A rolling storm, a ship without anchor Unguided by a captain's hand Unmoored in foreign harbour Just in sight of land

Old friends will leave and they'll never return When you see them again they are somebody else The letters and pictures don't need to be burned Just make room on the shelf Don't you want me to take my time Draw circles instead of lines You'll never be sure You'll never be sure You'll never be sure enough Gone gone stones in the tide Forget about them forever When new ones remind you of others long gone We'll sing about them together Don't you want me to take my time Draw circles instead of lines You'll never be sure You'll never be sure You'll never be sure enough Don't you want me to take my time Draw circles instead of lines You'll never be sure You'll never be sure You'll never be sure enough

Don't wait up Don't wait up You've been drifting in and out And the dream life is what it's all about Don't wait up Don't wait up You've been drifting in and out And the dream life is what it's all about And when I get home I'll try not to pull you out Don't wait up Don't wait up You've been drifting in and out And the dream life is what it's all about And when I get home I'll try not to pull you out Oh what's happened to night time and sleep Oh the coming of morning is a dream
