Hollywood Ending

Don’t you just love a Hollywood ending?
In the nick of time
she’s gonna come through
You can spend your whole life pretending
It’s gonna go that way for you, too

Cuz only you know her secret heart
She doesn’t mean to be unkind
The waiting’s not so hard
What’s a little more time?

We’re all fools for something
I’m smarter than this
Oh I swallow every lie
We’re all fools for something
She’s your loveliest weakness
He was my longest goodbye

I know just where you are
You ate up every last word
You swore you’d never let it get this far
And you’d never get hurt

I know I can’t change your mind
Like you can’t change your heart
I know the cliché love is blind
But who knew it could be so dark?

We’re all fools for something
I’m smarter than this
Oh I swallow every lie
We’re all fools for something
She’s your loveliest weakness
He was my longest goodbye
My hardest try

Don’t you just love a Hollywood ending?
In the nick of time
she’s gonna come through
You can spend your whole life pretending
It’s gonna happen that way for you, too

We’re all fools for something
I’m smarter than this
I never let anyone by
We’re all fools for something, someone
She’s your loveliest weakness
He was my longest, loveliest weakness
Loveliest weakness
He was my longest goodbye
My hardest try
My truest lie

The Night
You fall asleep with the window open
You love to listen to the night
When a storm muscles in
Leaves you broken
You’re always surprised

Sometimes you wish
That your heart could be traded
For one that will not bruise
But what good is a heart gone jaded?
Sometimes only pain tells the truth

You want it two ways - are you in or out?
You want to see the beauty
But you can’t kill these doubts
These blue days are gonna show you
How to fly

New love reads unwritten pages
You press them cool against your skin
But the words you fill them with
Feel like cages
You want to start clean again

You want it two ways - are you in or out?
You want to see the beauty
But you can’t kill these doubts
These blue days are gonna show you
How to fly

You want it two ways - are you in or out?
You want to see the beauty
But you can’t kill these doubts
These blue days are gonna show you
How to fly

You fall asleep with the window open
You love to listen to the night

Lonely

I get so brave when I’m drunk
I can be anything you want me to be

We made love only once
Just enough to make it come undone

Aren’t you lonely?
Aren’t you lonely?
When all the bars close down
Lonely
I thought you could hold me

All those girls know how to act
I know they talk behind my back
I try not to notice

His favorite t-shirt is still in my bed
Tangled up with all the words he said

Aren’t you lonely?
Aren’t you lonely?
When all the pretty girls line up
Lonely
I’ll make it easy

Lonely
Aren’t you lonely?
When the last bar closes
Lonely
The pretty girls laughing
Lonely
The black streets shining
Lonely
The cruel sun rising
I thought you could save me
Back to Top

Bonfire

When the fighting would start
All those nights you couldn’t go home
I’d pick you up in my car

Sometimes we’d just drive
Out past the college parties
Voices, ashes in the sky

Only a bonfire could melt this winter
Into an August night

Every word we said
Sharper than icicles
Hanging above my head

All the snow that fell
Made the whole world quiet
Still we could not stop ourselves

Only a bonfire could melt this winter
Into an August night burning slow

We were unshakeable
I thought we were strong
First sign of trouble and you were gone

Only a bonfire could melt this winter
You left so soon with no goodbye
We said nothing that can’t be forgiven
Even after all this time
Back to Top

Another Kind of Fire
Hey if you ever look for me
I’m the one who’s always leaving
Hey if you ever look for me
I’m the first to go
Oh I can barely pull myself
Away from your fire
Still here I am running
Into the coldest night

Yeah, it takes a few highway miles
To get this old car running
I’m thinking how my body
Ain’t all that different
Songs spill out of the radio
I need ‘em to just cover me
I need ‘em to remind me why

I’m not alone out here
I’m at home out here
It’s another, another, another kind of fire

Babe, you know I love to wake up
Just to see your sweet face smiling
I don’t think I have ever
Been held so tight
I’m making you a promise
And it’s wider than this country
I’m giving you a kiss
To remember me by

I’m not alone out here
I’m at home out here
It’s another, another, another kind of fire
Another, another, another kind of fire

Baby, I’m not proud
I got a fire in my chest only
These songs can put out
I got an avalanche in my mouth
I got an avalanche in my mouth

It’s another, another, another kind of fire
Another, another, another kind of fire

One Shot Deal
(carey/harmon)
It took a frozen sky
To place you in my arms that night
It took a scarlet shame to melt it fast

This stolen kiss, rough embrace
Pale reminders of that place
Green so deep can never last

It’s a one time thing
A one shot deal
That’s what you said that morning
But I couldn’t leave you

Postcard promise, the faintest spark
And hope set fire to my thirsty heart
Maybe there’s nothing that can’t be saved

All night drive, this forever ache
Your hardened eyes, defeated gaze
It took one look to send me away

It’s a one time thing
A one shot deal
That’s what you said that morning
I tried to believe you

How can you stand there
And close your eyes?
You saw the tear in the paper sky
I know you did, I know you did
I know you did, I know you did

It’s a one time thing
A one shot deal
That’s what you said that morning
I had to believe you
It’s a one time thing
A one shot deal
That’s what you said that morning
I had to believe you
Back to Top

Save You Now
On pieces of notebook paper
You’re plotting your greatest comeback
To a life that hasn’t happened yet

I drove you down to the ocean
I dove right in and you wondered
How you could swim and not get wet

Oh my love, only you can save you now
Oh my love, only you can save you now
Oh my love, you now, oh my love

Sing into the wind no one will hear you
Your voice won’t ring
Like it did when you
Were all alone in your living room

You can’t make anybody
Believe they are worthy of something
You can hold your love like a mirror
And wait

Oh my love, only you can save you now
Oh my love, only you can save you now
Oh my love, you now, oh my love
You now, oh my love

My Heart
I'm not gonna lie to you
I don't know what I'm doing
Even after all these years I'm lost
I'm not gonna lie to you
I'm a little bit crazy
I try to keep my head on straight
It's always a little bit off

But my heart feels right for the first time

You stay in one place too long
You become a target
Look at how I live my life always gone
But when it comes to me and you
I'm a little bit lazy
After all this running
I'm happy, happy just to stop

Cuz my heart feels right for the first time
In my life
My heart feels right for the first time
For the first time

So I'm just gonna stay right here
Just to see what happens
Funny how hard it is
To keep still
Long enough to let love in
No matter how you fight her
She'll always be the smartest
You don't think she'll get you
But she will, she will

My heart feels right for the first time
In my life
My heart feels right for the first time
For the first time
Back to Top

Without a Fight
How do you do it?
I don’t get it
How you get so angry
And then just forget it
How forgiveness comes so easy to you
Maybe I’m just crazy
How I get so shaky
But what if happy just means lazy?
What if leaving is the only thing
I know how to do?

When will I learn
It doesn’t have to burn to feel good again?
I wanna know how to love you right
Without a fight

So I flirt with freedom
Think “maybe I don’t need him”
I’ve been saving up my reasons
Why I’m gonna break this little silver thread
Watch me go off the deep end
Smash the dishes again
Throw the suitcase on the bed
I’m just a hurricane of appetite
And empty threats

When will I learn
It doesn’t have to burn to feel good again?
I wanna know how to love you right
Without a fight

But the farthest I can get
Is one hand on the door

It looks so much like passion
And it hurts sweet like love
I think I’m finally understood, finally...

Without a fight, without a fight
Back to Top

What Love Looks Like
(for fred & becky):
I can’t drive after I see you
You make me drunk and distracted
Got me coasting through
Every stoplight in town

I keep checking my reflection
Thinking this is what love looks like
Cheeks like roses, eyes like flames
Like flames

I’ll try but I can’t paint this
Or color in your kindness
You are green and gold and clear like rain

And I don’t know how to thank you
My words are just as empty
As the days before you came to stay

I know I’m not alone
I’ve got a love to call my own
I know I’m not alone
I’ve got a love to call my own, my own

I’ve been chasing sleep since midnight
I did not want to wake you
So I’ll whisper this and maybe you’ll hear

You make me higher than that mountain
That we climbed that day last summer
All I want is just a million more like that

You say baby you’re not alone
You’ve got a love to call your own
Now baby you’re not alone
You’ve got a love, oooh a love, oooh a love
