// console
Do you remember [do you recall? You said get in the car let’s go let’s go
Do you remember [do you recall? I said goodbye and watched you fall.

Will you hold me as I fall apart?
Will you console me as you tear into my heart?
I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die I swear I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die [You’ll be able to say goodbye and be done
Be gone it’s over now it’s over now, now I’m gone

Now I have paintings in real frames [I know poets with Russian last names
Sit in filthy bars to wash my sins away [you’re like ice cream on a freezing day

Will you hold me as I fall apart?
Will you console me as you tear into my heart?
I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die I swear I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die I’ll die [You’ll be able to say goodbye and be done
Be gone it’s over now it’s over now, now I’m gone

/ sprawl
People not cities sprawl [people not cities sprawl
Use every horse to break the fall [Want to walk before we crawl

Wanna know what I think [Wash the bad news down with a drink
Everyone’s got something to write [Lines of old advice to an ill-advised tribe

People not cities sprawl [want to walk before I crawl People not cities sprawl [want to walk before I crawl

Who’s the first to walk away?
Hate to miss the band the show the play
What’s waiting for me in the country?
Shit I’ll think about it later it’s only me anyway

/ mona lisa
Never liked her hands [I’ve never liked her hands
Saw her years ago [surrounded by fans
Stood in front and watched her smile
Spoke to me [filled my head with lies
Never liked her hands [never [never

I stood still, with the watchers [stood still like everyone
Another must see [hold my head up to a gun
Look up now from writing [she’s there facing me
Didn’t trust her then [now she joins me for tea

Mona Lisa, never loved you, never loved you..

It’s good to meet you Mona Lisa [gonna stay for a while
It’s good to meet you Mona Lisa [gonna stay until until I see you
Hide out pretend that [pretend that we are fine
Mona Lisa, never loved you, never you
(C)Mona Lisa, never loved you, never loved you.

// undertow
I don’t wanna go [but you’re making me so
Your so-innocent glow [feels like undertow
Taking hope from a line tell the truth from a lie [you decide
Best thing for us [is an end to fuss [a clean break by bus

Feels like undertow [oh [feels like undertow [ repeat

Dragging me out further now [I cannot see the shore
Suck the last life out of me [I don’t want anymore
Sneak up on me quietly [angry and afraid
Wrap yourself around me [so I taste your cheap charade
I haven’t moved a muscle now for 25 miles[ I haven’t moved[ I haven’t moved… oh [oh oh [feels like undertow…
Feels like undertow [oh [feels like undertow [ repeat

// make it easy
You say you will you say you won’t you will you won’t you can’t make up your mind
But I am standing here and waiting for you don’t you see I want to try?
How long do I wait for you darling can’t you just help me help you decide?
Would you like me to wait forever baby do you think that this is right? Please don’t lie

Make it easy make it easy on me run away when I’m looking the other way make it simple make it easy on me make it simple make it easy

I’d like to stay I would I swear I think you think I think we could be great
But my head’s sore this song is torn and baby I don’t think that I can wait
Don’t’ think you’re that good darling please don’t ever feel you were my only chance
I’ve learned so much you’ve taught me well I am no longer underneath your trance – had your chance

/ before
Before we waited a long time [they all tell me I am wrong
But I refuse to listen [I write stubborn songs

Some say she will make me [some say that she will leave
Some say that it’s not in her [Most say run stay free

So quick to advise [You’ve all got great advice
But tell me will you also finish living out my life?
But tell me will you also finish living out my life?

So I waited for a long time [you say you’re not the same
I wasn’t waiting anyway [Lord I’m rarely insane

I have you racing in my head [and someone’s laughing loud
Please don’t say you told me so [I’m such a fool now

/ blame
I blame you honey I do [I blame you honey I do
Honey I see but you’ll never agree
Honey I know that you ought to go [I blame you

I blame you honey I do [I blame you honey I do
Darling I will blame you until
I clear my head of all that you said [I blame you

I could’ve said sorry [Never wanted to [Or needed to
I blame you I blame you I blame you for all that you do

I blame you honey I do [I blame you honey I do
I wish you well in this dreadful hell
You said you’d leave ‘n I’d like to believe
The things that you said [but you wished I were dead]
I blame you

Could’ve said sorry [never wanted to [or needed to
I blame you blame you it’s easier than blaming myself

// i've been better
I’ve been better babe, oh yeah, oh yeah

// wednesday
Monday I’m gonna pray [That we’ll make it you’ll stay
Monday I’ll never say [Never hear me complain

Tuesday morning you’re gone [I am not what you want
Tuesday morning so grey [Dim my head and my way

Wednesday Wednesday should stay
Wednesday Wednesday with me

Thursday you laugh at me [Walking blindly I see
Thursday you laugh at me [I can still hear you breathe

Wednesday Wednesday should stay
Wednesday Wednesday with me

Wednesday’s a perfect girl [Wednesday dark eyes and curls
Wednesday’s a perfect girl [Wednesday dark eyes and curls

// faith
And this is my faith in you [and this is my faith in you
And this is my faith in you [and this is my faith in you

Won’t you please hold my hand [so hard to know you won't but can
Why did you have to run away [it could’ve been a perfect day
You bring me hope [I’m such a fool [I want to learn not a clue
Simple days just me and you [don't leave darling you are my glue

And this is my faith in you [and this is my faith in you
And this is my faith in you [and this is my faith in you

And this is why I want you [ to stay and listen and know it’s true
And it could be my job to wait [but it could be my faith’s too late
And this is why you need me [I wish that you could only see
That this is all we really need [just be my wall I'll be your breeze
