I bleed the color of a rose Cause I need a way to let you know How I feel when you say you don't love Who I am That is why Whenever you leave I Bleed Verse I know you laughed but you really meant That to be content you need an accident To shake you up and show you when you're wrong Not just apathy but some agony A little tragedy in the family To drag you down where you think you belong You want the same old song With something colorful and strong so Chorus Verse I can't understand what you put me through When I talk to you you don't have a clue You can't repeat a single word I said Does someone have to die for you to be surprised When you close your eyes don't you wonder why You find it hard to fall asleep in bed? What the hell is in your head? You only hurt when you see red Bridge Love could be so beautiful if we knew how To let it all come flowing in but for now Chorus I bleed when you say you don't love Who I am That is why Whenever you leave I Bleed

I catch a Max across the river I spend my cash on books at Powell's I love my yellow bumper sticker Defending northern spotted owls I buy a giant bowl of chowder Beside a quaint New England beach I try to call you for an hour But you're impossible to reach It doesn't matter how together we get When we still find it feels like we never connect from Chorus Portland to Portland I'm so over keeping this goin' You think we're soulmates, I think we're through I'm down in deep water and don't have a clue We're swimming in two separate oceans Three thousand miles from Portland to Portland Verse I thought a girl who loves her freedom Would want a guy who gives her that I gave you every other weekend And now I'm glad to give it back It doesn't matter how together we get When we still find it feels like we never commit Chorus Bridge Now and then I think of you But in the end that's all I do (You know I'd drive the distance) Chorus (instrumental)

I will rise when you call my name Though you don't give me half of what I need I still fall for all your games And wonder why I ask you not to leave Oh it won't be long Till it all comes down There'll come a time When it comes around, wo-oah Chorus Rise And Fall You can't run before you crawl Get big before you're small If you do you're bound to lose it all In the Rise And Fall Verse We built an empire in just a day (one fine day) On nothing but a promise and a smile (now it's burning down) But Rome burns and you're away (better come back oh yeah) Playing hard and living in denial (cuz I'll be gone) It won't be long Till it all comes down Gonna come a time When it comes around, wo-oah Chorus Bridge We'll ride the tidal wave We'll drown or make the coast Maybe we'll be saved But that's what may hurt most Chorus

If I had a lotta money, here's what I'd do Buy a ticket for me and a ticket for you Buy ya cotton candy and a roller coaster ride Oh, my... Over Ticklebelly Hill down to Picadilly Square Up to Saddleback Point to the Renaissance Fair Singin' Pollywolly Doodle with a belly fulla beans And scream... Chorus Happy all day, Happy all night Happy to be rockin' in the rain or the sunshine Takin' my time, no need to rush Happy to be happy on the super short bus Verse Mr. Bojangles, two tangled up feet Tappin' and a'rappin' to a hippy hop beat Rubberneck chicken and a whoopee cushion too For you... Do the Hully Gully, with a twist and a jerk Call the boss, say your sick, don't show up for work This rhyming dictionary doesn't have a single rhyme for orange Chorus Happy all day, Happy all night Happy to be rockin' in the rain or the sunshine Takin' my time, no need to rush Happy to be happy on the super short bus

Light caste on the bathroom floor Slides past through the open door Your smell of smoke upon the walls Hangs like dusk in coastal trees And silent pools and halls I love you all Over Me, Over Me Verse You came angel to my bed No shame in a land of dead And scattered ash you breathed a fire Then you simply let me sleep And dream when I was tired You floated high Over Me (I floated high as could be), Over Me (but you should know by now) Bridge I'm on a train and the sights are flying past (Your town is beating in the distance) You're on a plane and the light is fading fast (Once again I'm feeling the resistance) We had a plan was it all that much to ask? Verse Love now just an accident Your vow wasn't what you meant Like Christmas cards on discount shelves Hell you bought one just for me And said you wished me well Oh I can tell You're Over Me, Over Me

You walked right out of the darkest night You came back down into warm sunlight I wish I knew what made you turn around They wrapped your body in oils and cloth Any hope left had all been lost They packed you up and then they put you down Whatever you saw when your life went black Well it musta been big cause it brought you back Chorus I wanna know why I wanna know how I wanna feel hope like you must feel now Whatever it takes Get me out of my skin If I have to break down just to feel again Verse You look like me but I know you're not What you've been given can't be bought If only I could be you just one time So tie my body in oil and rags And take away everything I have So I can feel what I know is truly mine Whatever you saw when your life went black Well it musta been big cause it brought you back Chorus Bridge Why do your friends Hide you away You'll just forget More every day Chorus ...I want to walk on the water ...I want to stand in the fire ...I want to fly in the open ...I want to live in the light Do I need to go blind ...I want to flow like a fountain In a blaze of light Do I need to turn black just to see white ...I want to love like an ocean Let me be burned ...I want to shine on a mountain With the hottest coals And tear me apart so that I can be whole ...I want to glow in the night I wanna know why ...I want to laugh like a baby I wanna know how I wanna feel hope like you must feel now ...I want to roar like a river Whatever it takes ...I want to howl like a hurricane Get me out of my skin If I have to break down just to feel again Just to feel again

I can hold 'em back Pretend that I'm doin' fine if I have to I can hold 'em back Pretend I'm over you I can wear a mask With a smile and two happy eyes if I need to I can wear a mask Pretend it's all cool Chorus I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep breathin' out And without a doubt it's a win win No Tears Allowed No Tears Allowed Verse You can play the game With a laugh baby cut the cards how you want to You can play the game Beat your old fool Chorus I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep bleedin' out I can paint the town it's a win win No Tears Allowed No Tears Allowed Bridge So aren't we happy now We worked it out somehow Didn't we You thought that I would die But look how I survived No, you're not rid of me Chorus I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep breathin ' out And without a doubt it's a win win No Tears Allowed No Tears Allowed I'll keep breathin' in and I'll keep bleedin' out I can paint the town it's a win win No Tears Allowed No Tears Allowed

Where you been hidin' out I haven't seen you in forever Looks like you could use a little sunshine on your face We had love way back then Why not try love again Make it like it used to be When you and me were you and me Chorus When your heart starts pounding like a stereo When your head keeps spinning but you can't let go Isn't it beautiful, wonderful Wonderful, beautiful Beautiful, wonderful Wonderful, beautiful Verse See that couple holding' hands how they're smilin' at each other Sittin' at the corner table of our favorite restaurant We could be just like them It could happen again Make it like it used to be When you and me were you and me Chorus Bridge Baby the band is playing our song Come on let's dance all night long Instrumental first half chorus Chorus When your heart starts pounding like a stereo When your head keeps spinning but you can't let go Isn't it beautiful, wonderful Wonderful, beautiful Beautiful, wonderful Wonderful, beautiful

Well I lost my wings, now I can't fly Like a grounded plane fallen from the sky Yeah, I'm off my game, one reason why Cause I lost my wings, now I can't fly Well I lost my fire, but I don't feel cool And I'm bone tired of bein' played the fool Sinkin' like a stone, one reason why Cause I lost my wings, now I can't fly Verse I was cruising' through the clear clear blue Sailin' at high altitude Didn't need a parachute, no way But I stayed too long beside the sun Burned my feathers one by one I tumbled to the ground and there I lay Verse Well I lost my flame, but I'm not put out Embers remain underneath the doubt But I'll fan the coals before they die Yeah I'll find my wings so I can fly Yeah I'll find my wings so I can fly

She stands inside the doorway Shaking like a leaf from waiting there the whole day She plans only for the moment She feels, she knows, she believes Will always come around She stays when we're together Cause leaving me alone would never make it better I try hard to understand what She feels, she knows, she believes Will always come around Chorus She's Always Hopeful But something must be wrong It couldn't be that simple She's always noble I wish that I could see A way that I could be Like she is with a heart that's always full And Always Hopeful Verse Deep eyes they know what sad is Whenever I'm in pain she understands what that is She cries just to let me see that She feels, she knows, she believes I'll always come around Chorus Bridge One day when she's gone The lights will all come on And I'll wish I could be with her again Chorus Always Hopeful But something must be wrong It couldn't be that simple Always noble I wish that I could see A way that I could be Where she is with a heart that's always full And Always Hopeful

You were a dancer You lived for the moment That's how your world went around I had no answers My life was in torment Till you turned it all upside down I'd sit in the shadows You'd spin in the sunlight Time after time we'd return You knew I was sad so you often would stop And hold me when I came to watch You Turn Verse Almost to summer The winter was broken Columbine cluttered the field Twilight we'd run there Your arms would fly open We'd twirl until everything reeled But everything changed Once again in September What will it take till I learn? The color of pain is so hard to recall But that's what I felt when I saw You Turn Bridge Open, the heart's an unstoppable wheel Closed in, it hardens like copper and steel Verse You were a dancer You lived in slow motion That's how your world went around I had a bad year I fell in the ocean And thought I would probably drown While you've turned the corner I'm still on some highway Crossing a bridge I should burn I pull into nowhere and lie here awake Wond'ring how I could have made You Turn

I'm hanging a photo over the place You made your impression confessing your rage You and I long ago So alive and full of hope Now you sulk I ache Angry nights and bitter days Chorus Everything Ends Everything fades Everything passes and withers away Now look at us Too late to pretend Cause everything changes Everything Ends Verse I rent out the bedroom we used to share I pass by on tiptoe and never go there On a shelf behind a door In a box you hide away Your ghost but I can pray Chorus That Everything Ends Even this pain Everything passes and withers away I'll look back at us This too shall mend Cause everything changes Everything Ends Bridge I hang on for life to some sweet fantasy I'm driving in circles still chasing a dream I dig in my heels resisting the change Looking for someone, someone to blame Chorus Everything Ends Even this pain I'll look back at us This too shall mend Cause everything changes Everything Ends

Was it a dream or was it anything Or was it my wild imagination? Did you say what I thought I heard Or was I lost in translation? Chorus I will follow you To the ends of the earth Yes, I will follow you For what that's worth Verse You may not know it, but long ago I felt like my world was in ruins But your words lifted me to my feet And made my life worth pursuing Chorus I will follow you To the ends of the earth Yes, I will follow you For what that's worth I will follow you Till it all burns down I will follow you Don't count me out

If I can see the kindness in your blue eyes Then why Can't I feel the fire I want to cherish everything about you and I do Or maybe I'm a liar In a cloud In the rain Running down A window pane Chorus You remind me of someone Someone I've managed to forget But you remind me of someone Someone…I haven't met yet Verse That pretty little grin that shows your sadness Inspires madness But doesn't get me crazed I'm reaching out for something in the pale blue just beyond you out there hovering in the haze In a room In a face shadows fill an empty (place/space) Chorus You remind me of someone Someone I've managed to forget But you remind me of someone Someone… Bridge Deja vu and in a flash The mystery comes rushing back And suddenly I understand the truth Chorus You remind me of someone Someone I've managed to forget You remind me of some one Someone…I haven't met yet

Woke up in bed my skin was a-crawlin' Inside my head your voice was a-callin' Calling from so far away But I can hear it clear as thunder Every little thing you say When you come around sounds like a Chorus Big Whisper That creeps up behind and trumpets the truth A big twister That sneaks into town just to rip off the roof To reveal the sun the stars and the moon The Big Whisper Verse I thought I could leave you unattended Crap I got was not what I intended Trouble didn't disappear Pretending there was nothing to it Now every single thing I hear When I shut you down sounds like a Chorus Bridge I don't want to lose you I don't want to lose you now I've been hard of hearing Now I've gotta figure out Chorus This Big Whisper (instrumental) A big twister That sneaks into town just to rip off the roof I could board up the windows or listen to you Show me the sun and the stars and the moon The Big Whisper
