THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Something You Lost

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Something You Lost Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

She’ll never know
When she tells you goodnight
The fear that you hide
As she lays by your side

When you stand
All the faults of a man
Etched right in your face
Still she lays there in place

How the warmth
Of the garden you sowed
Is the stuff of these bones
Once broken and cold

And you go home
And you sleep in your bed
Feel like your dancing in sync
With the ghosts in your head

And she wakes
You say, ?go back to sleep?
You dare never say
The greatest secret you keep

Is that you might be alone
That you might have to run
That the rest of your life
Will be a series of nights
That you spend in your mind
Staring backwards through time
At something you lost

And you’ll never be home
You’ll never be one
Eyes closed in the sun
On a warm day in June
But on the damp dirty floor
Of your wintry cold room
You see her face in the dust
How it fills you up

And you say hello
Hello
Please don’t ever leave
Please don’t ever go
And you can call me a man
It’s etched right in my face
But it could never span

The endless expanse of space
All around us alone

And just this one small home
One brief moment of time
The only thing I call mine
Is this line that we crossed
And how it came at the cost
Of everything that I lost

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT The Thing About Dreams

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT The Thing About Dreams Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

The thing about dreams
Is that everything seems
Like you’re riding a wave
That’s been forming all day in your mind

The thing about time
Is all in your mind
Days turn to weeks turn to years turn to infinite signs:
What you’re leaving behind

And the hell with the rest
You gave them your best
You talk through your teeth
And the black cigarettes
In your hand

I always believed
You were more than impossible
More than you seem
And partly responsible for my life
From my eyes
Let’s stay the night
We’ll leave with the sunrise

The thing about me
Is I wanted to be
More than just friends
And hardly acquaintances
I, I wanna know why
You turn in your sleep
The secrets you keep
The things that you bury so deeply, discreetly inside
My, oh my

And the hell with the words
Or haven’t you heard?
Nobody says what they mean
‘Til the second or third
Whiskey rye

I always believed
You were more than impossible
More than you seem
And partly responsible for my life
From my eyes
Let’s stay the night
We’ll leave with the sunrise

The thing about love:
It’s never enough
Circumstance changes
And life’s always calling your bluff
Enough is enough

And when you sleep
You’re alone
When you dream you’re just one
Of a million small pieces
My darling, I see you, I’m one

I always believed
We were more than impossible
You’re more than you seem
And partly responsible for my lies
From my eyes

And now I’ve said too much
I’m not givin’ up
I can’t carry the weight
Of this overfilled cup
I just close my eyes
Like you’re close to the touch and I’ll dream, dream

You’re not what you seem
You’re not what you seem

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT My Childish Bride

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT My Childish Bride Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

Have you ever seen a map laid flat, four corners pinned back, all the lines and the legend in black,
so clear that you feared it was nearly all in your mind?
And the phrase that fell from her lips left a rip from the top of your shoulders to the point of your hip
and the feeling that you get is if God exists he?s really unkind.

But it?s not what you want to say when you?re losing.
All the meaning?s lost in the choosing: the right side, the wrong side, the side that?s been winning.
Forget the words, look back to the beginning.

My childish bride, Oh how I, miss your face
Sometimes, I see my life slip by across your face

There?s an ocean on land. There?s a plan. There?s a plan.
There?s a fifty-foot tower running power over sand.
There was a city on a hill. It was a thrill but the lights are all gone.
Now we stare at each other like a sister to a brother, like a pusher to a shover,
like a secret to a cover, like a lover to a lover under covers with the stereo on.

But it?s not what you said to me when you were leaving.
Oh this mass of bodies, we?re heaving the right way, the wrong way, the way that they taught us.
Forget your words, remember they got us.

My childish bride, Oh how I, miss your face
Sometimes, I see my life slip by across your face

Tell me are you real? Do you feel? Do you steal these moments you reveal with those eyes that can?t conceal?
Were you wronged? Was your song just some clever thing that you made up?
?Cause the words are just right and I could listen all night.
I could whisper. I could bite. I could write. I could write. I could sing. I could cling.
There?s not a single thing I?d ever give up.

But it?s not what you meant to me when you were leaving.
Oh this mass of bodies all heaving the right way, the wrong way, the way that they taught us.
Forget yourself, remember they bought us.

My childish bride, Oh how I, miss your face
Sometimes, I see my life slip by like a taste of death.

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Hell And Back

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Hell And Back Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

I held on as long as I could possibly
My blind faith pushing me to my knees
I felt the warmth of a touch
And it made me believe
And I knew it well

I stood at the doorway hoping you might let me in
My head spinning ’round
My nerves jumping from my skin
I felt the stinging ragged cold
Of the devil’s hot embrace
And I knew it well

And you took me to hell and back
How many times can I walk away from you?
My mind’s like a one way track
And every one is taking me back to you
And you tell me Just one more time
And you’re lying like you always do
And I know it well

I must have walked a thousand miles or more tryin’ to keep you off my mind
I’ve knocked on a thousand doors I’m sure, just to see what I might find
I slept in the arms of a fallen angel cryin’ next to me
And I knew her well

And you took me to hell and back
How many times can I walk away from you?
My mind’s like a one way track
And every one is taking me back to you
And you tell me Just one more time
And you’re lying like you always do
And you give me just one more line and there?s nothing that I can do
If I do it just one more time, then I swear that I?ll be through
Yeah I know it well

And you took me to hell and back
My mind’s like a one way track
And you tell me Just one more time
And you’re lying like you always do
Yeah I know it well

And you took me to hell and back
How many times can I walk away from you?
My mind’s like a one way track
And every one is taking me back to you
And you tell me Just one more time
And you’re lying like you always do
And you give me just one more line and there?s nothing that I can do
If I do it just one more time, then I swear that I?ll be through
Yeah I know it well
Yeah I know it well

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Time To Be A Man

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Time To Be A Man Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

You?re wide awake tossing
And you can?t even sleep,
With all these secrets you keep.
The way home is so steep.
And then it?s midnight,
And you feel so alone.
You?ve got your radio on.
You don?t know if you can face the dawn.

And it?s time to be a man.
Tell me how does that go?
What the hell are you waiting for?
The whole world is at your door.

All these lies that you told to yourself.
Like you don?t need no one else.
Don?t put your pride upon the shelf.

And it?s time to be a man.
Tell me how does that go?
What the hell are you waiting for?
The whole world is at your door.

It?s time to make a plan
For the rest of your life.
Just stop saying that you?re over it, over it.
You know that?s a lie.

But you were never alone.
You were never alone.

When she gave you all that she had to give.
You have to know where you live.
Do you even know what you did?

And it?s time to be a man.
Tell me how does that go?
What the hell are you waiting for?
The whole world is at your door.

It?s time to make a plan
For the rest of your life.
Just stop saying that you?re over it, over it.
You know that?s a lie.

You just have to let it go.
You just have to let it go.
You just have to let it go.

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT California

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT California Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

Someday they?re going to write about us, living here in the shadow of this gathering dust,
As the waves build up and drown the light, while we?re hanging from buildings on a Saturday night.

And the words she said? I could barely hear over the blare of the speakers and the smell of beer,
As she got up to speak, she lifted her dress. I remember her face but I forget the rest.

Here in California, I was
Just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr.
Here in California, we?re all stuck in the same scene,
All nightmares and daydreams
In California.

She said, ?I got money, but I got no friends,? as we drove through the valley in her daddy?s Benz.
She said, ?These pills wear off, but the pain don?t end. I never thought it would matter so much to pretend.?

And the thing about her that haunts me still: as her hands fell down to the steering wheel,
And a shock of light fell across her face, she said there?s only two ways out of this place.

Here in California, I was
Just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr.
Here in California, we?re all stuck in the same scene,
All nightmares and daydreams
In California.

And oh, I hope it?s clear: there?s no room for us anymore in the atmosphere,
But darling I always liked the desperation in your eyes,
The way you?d dance in the glow of the Hollywood Freeway lights.

Someday they?re gonna forget about us and we?ll wonder if we were ever good enough.
It hit me last night, in this song I heard, I remember the feeling but forget all the words.

Here in California, I was
Just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr.
Here in California, we?re all stuck in the same scene,
All nightmares and daydreams
In California.

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Dope Machines

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Dope Machines Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

You keep me up some nights, trying to figure what you mean.
I don?t know if it?s right. I don?t what you?re asking.
When you laugh and you say, ?I was only joking.?

And it still feels wrong. I?m always asking these questions:
?Are you just playing dumb? Or trying to get a reaction??
When you laugh and you say, ?I was only joking.?

We got our eyes on screens, all of these dope machines.
Isn?t it funny how they feel so much like dreams?
Am I trying too hard, oh I?m not trying at all?

I see it in your eyes, I feel it in my bones,
You coming out tonight? We gonna end up alone?
Just so I could pretend I was only joking.

We got our eyes on screens, all of these dope machines.
Isn?t it funny how they feel so much like dreams?
Am I trying too hard, oh I?m not trying at all?

I got three or four things I?ve always wanted to tell you.
I got two or three secrets I don?t think you could handle.
A little closer to me, I was never joking.
Come a little closer to me, I was never joking.

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT One Time Thing

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT One Time Thing Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

When I woke up today
I got your message on my phone
You said I had fun
Did you ever make it home?
I tried to read between the lines
Oh yeah, I?m doing fine

Feels like my head is made of moonshine
And cheap-ass wine
My best friend told me I should just stop looking for a sign
Babe

So okay
You told me it was just a one time thing
A spark on gasoline
So what could I say?
If you tell me it don?t mean a thing, yeah
Somebody told me you were mean

Then in a couple of days
I get this photograph of you
The message says you?re lonely too
Do you wanna tell me what to do?
I thought maybe it was a line
When we spoke that one last time

Sounds like your breath is full of moonshine
And cheap-ass wine
My best friend told me I should just stop looking for a sign
Babe

So okay
You told me it was just a one time thing
A spark on gasoline
So what could I say?
If you tell me it don?t mean a thing, yeah
Somebody told me you were like a machine
And so damn mean
My mind?s falling to pieces every time I try to jump up
On this trampoline

Why don?t you tell me what you mean?
Why don?t you tell me what you mean?
Why won?t you tell me I was just your mistake?
How long can this take?
How many sleepless nights can I go over every second
While I?m lying awake?
Babe

So okay
If this is really just a one time thing
I think I?ve lost something
What else can I say?
I don?t blame you for a single thing, yeah
Somebody told me I should stay away
But I can?t help it I want one more thing
Silence is deafening
I can?t put you away
And I don?t blame you for a single thing, yeah
Somebody told me you were mean

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Wrong

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Wrong Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

All my young life
I?ve been trying to say
Just one thing right
And now
We?ve come to the day
You?re here in my arms
I don?t know what to say

I believe I was wrong
Probably most of my life
Or I’m just hearing it wrong
I?m just watching the fire light

I see the look in your eyes
Am I trying too hard?
Am I doing this right?
So I fall
I fall down to my knees
I?m not easy to soothe
I?m never easy to please

I believe I was wrong
Probably most of my life
Or I’m just hearing it wrong
I?m just watching the fire light
I don?t care if it?s right
I know your friends are opposed
But we?ve still got tonight
We?ll just keep our eyes closed

I believe I was wrong
Probably most of my life
Or I’m just hearing it wrong
I?m just watching the fire light
I don?t care if it?s right
I know your friends are opposed
But we?ve still got tonight
We?ll just keep our eyes closed

THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Elizabeth

Lyrics from jongenjournalist.wordpress.com THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT Elizabeth Lyrics, singer by THE AIRBORNE TOXIC EVENT

There?s a distance in your eyes
That?s why a smile is always a surprise
When you call and you talk to me
I wonder which person you?re going to be
She said, all your songs are sad songs
Why do you always have to see the worst of it
Could you write me just one love song?
Put my name somewhere in the middle of it
It?s not hard to write Elizabeth
Just close your eyes boy and take your best guess
Cause the truth is hard, isn?t it?
She said ?I?ll be listening in my favorite white dress?

All these quite afternoons,
She said, ?I wonder if I?ve given up my love too soon?
As her hair fell from her curls
I said you?re pretty uptight for a Mexican Girl
She said, all your songs are sad songs
Why do you always have to make me feel like shit?
Could you write me just one love song?
And put my name somewhere in the middle of it
And if you call the song Elizabeth
All my friends will know it?s about me
Cause the truth is hard, isn?t it?
Don?t take too long, I just know you?ll come back to me

I said all these songs are love songs
Just love at times can make you feel like shit
So you write a string of words down
It?s better if there?s some truth in it
It?s true I love you Elizabeth
I love the way you move in that silly white dress
Because the truth is hard to admit
I?ve never known love
This is just my best guess.
