I Tried to Rock You But You Only Roll

Mexico

Where there's wrong there's always right
That's what's kept us on this road tonight
Sand as far as the eye can see
But ain't it funny how the world is just like
you and me
Come with me to Mexico
We can laugh about the love we used to know
Yea, I'm ridden with a fear
But please answer when I call you dear

My friends think that we're all wrong
Another muse for another tragic song
But who ever wrote a plan
Was a fool when it comes to a woman
and a man

Come with me to Mexico
You can drive and I can take it slow
Yea, I'm ridden with a fear
Please answer when I call you dear

I should hate you but I don't
You should love me but you won't
Isolation is my plan
Woman's gonna make a man
I should hate you but I don't
You should love me but you won't
Isolation is my plan
Woman's gonna make a man
I should hate you but I don't
You should love me but you won't
Isolation is my plan
Woman's gonna make a man
I should hate you but I don't
You should love me but you won't
Isolation is my plan

Come with me to Mexico
Stop listening to that damn radio
Yea, I'm ridden by a fear
But please answer when I call

Come with me to Mexico
You can drive and I can take it slow
Yea, I'm ridden with a fear
Please answer when I call you dear

Blue Eyed Baby

Now that it's over
Now that it's gone
Now that I'm sober
With every love song
I hear you in my sleep
I hear you in my wake
The phones ringing
Someone's singing
I'm being self-decieving, hold me, mold me
Whatever, know me

Blue eyed baby, say you will be,
Waiting for me at the end of the day

Now that there's nothing, nothing left
for me to hold
I knew you better than anyone
Even when you were cold
Here in my sleep
I hear you in my wake
The phones ringing
Someone's saying
I'm being self-decieving
Hold me, mold me
Whatever know me

Blue eyed baby say you will be
Waiting for me at the end of my day
Blue eyed baby you said you would be
Slap down right in the middle of the show
You walked out to go

I don't even like love anymore
It's the only thing that keeps my weight
to the floor
And I pray and I pray that you leave me be
So shine down, shine down on me

Blue eyed baby say you will be
Waiting for me at the end of my day
Blue eyed baby you said you would be
Slap down right in the middle of the show
You walked out to go

In my head in the middle of the night
In my heart in the middle of the night
In my head in the middle of the night
In my heart in the middle of the night
In my head in the middle of the night
In my heart in the middle of the night
In my head in the middle of the night
In my heart in the middle of the night

Mayor of Your Town

Please don't chase this
It's too late, you won't wake this

I got my hi tech radio wreck, a 45 to keep
me alive
My heads down, we're outta this town
where there's no one around
They're all speaking nothing said, it don't
matter when you're dead
So hold tight wear something white
And never go looking for a fight

And when you fall, I'll be around
I'll be the mayor of your town
And when you're waiting for the lights to go
I'll be that song on your radio
And when you're reaching for the light
I'll be your infinite night
And when they come to swallow you
I'll be the water to wash you through

Slow down
You won't lose me
Slow down
You didn't choose me

I got my high heels boots of steel
My lipstick to kiss and kill
I'm following through on something new
That isn't about you
My head's high, my clothes are fly
This ink is almost dry
And so I've said and never done
I'm gonna run and fucking run

And when you fall, I'll be around
I'll be the mayor of your town
And when you're waiting for the lights to go
I'll be that song on your radio
And when you're reaching for the light
I'll be your infinite night
And when they come to swallow you
I'll be the water to wash you through

Give myself so easily
Never again yea
I'll be one of those fake plastic trees
In your den yea
And when you turn out the light
Ever again yea
I'll be that burning light never again yea

And when you fall, I'll be around
I'll be the mayor of your town
And when you're waiting for the lights to go
I'll be that song on your radio
And when you're reaching for the light
I'll be your infinite night
And when they come to swallow you
I'll be the water to wash you through

And when you fall, I'll be around
I'll be the mayor of your town
And when they come to swallow you
I'll be the water to wash you through

Boys Like You

Blue light
Flashing in my heart tonight
Telling me that I'm alright
And will be for some time
Leave me now
Playing on the radio
Leave me for the friends you know
I will only break your heart

Sundays I remember you
With your sleepy eyes shading pale blue

My baby's gone and everybody knows
The fever hit me in my fingers and through
my toes
This baby's gone and boy you know it shows
This baby's gone
Will I see you again
another time when time will end
When I knew you my heart was in bends
And I know I never said goodbye
But boys like you don't ever cry

Don't speak
The smile is sliding down my cheek
I only came here to get what I need
White light blinding my way tonight
Will you remember me like I was?

Cause my baby's gone and everybody knows
The fever hit me in my fingers and through
my toes
This baby's gone and boy you know it shows
This baby's gone
Will I see you again
another time when time will end
When I knew you my heart was in bends
And I know I never said goodbye
But boys like you don't ever cry

My baby's gone and boy you know it shows
This baby's gone
Will I see you again
another time when time will end
When I knew you my heart was in bends
And I know I never said goodbye
But boys like you don't ever cry
don't ever cry
don't ever cry
don't ever cry

All the Stars

You killed the 80s with another love song
And well the 90s I'm happy their gone
Oh baby now that you've joined the ranks
All I can say is farewell and thanks

Oh baby
Sorry to use you in such vain
But that's what hurting can do
And it's a shame
That pretty face will lose it's charm
I have the eye and you have the calm
The roads are paved with gold

All the stars are out tonight
Bleeding down their northern lights
Northern star, I don't know who you are
Northern star, I don't know who you are

Oh Daddy I thought it was you
And knowing this I would have walked
right through
You only loved me in every way that you should
And I am a fool to believe you did anything
but good
The roads are paved with gold

All the stars are out tonight
Bleeding down their northern lights
Northern star, I don't know who you are
Northern star, I don't know who you are

Go in time and you'll fall in love
Go in time and you'll fall in love
Go in time and you'll fall in love
Go in time and you'll fall in love

All the stars are out tonight
Bleeding down their northern lights
Northern star, I don't know who you are
Northern star, I don't know who you are

All the stars are out tonight
Bleeding down their northern lights
Northern star, I don't know who you are
Northern star, I don't know who you are
All the stars

Hurricane

Well I don't know what to do with my head
And all the things that live inside
And I don't know what to believe
My god she's got aces up her sleeve

He's gone away like I knew he would
He's gone away like I knew he should

So bring back my hurricane
Tell him I am fine again
Cause we landed somewhere in another plane
And I don't if I'll
Ever be the same

Well the world was round before I found you
And the oceans a changing blue
Well I was always going somewhere
But I never believed it would be from you

He's gone away like I knew he would
He's gone away like I knew he should

So bring back my hurricane
Tell him I am fine again
Cause we landed somewhere in another plane
And I don't if I'll
Ever be the same

Oh bring back my hurricane
Tell him I am fine again
Cause we landed somewhere in another plane
And I don't if I'll
Ever be the same
Bring back my hurricane
Tell him I am fine again
Cause we landed somewhere in another plane
And I don't know if I'll ever
Oh I don't know if I'll ever
Oh bring back my hurricane
Bring back
Bring back
Bring back

I Tried to Rock You But You Only Roll

Hear me now, like you did back then
With an underground feeling and a solid gold
old soul
Feel me now, like you did back then
with an over ground healing
Tried to steal my soul
Got so scared, got so tired doing everything
wrong doing everything right
Got 2 guitars to play my songs
Many rights to kill my wrongs
Got a smile that could knock you down
Friends who will follow me and I don't own
responsibility
But I know what I am and I know that I'm right
yea, yea, yea

My arms were reaching not to let you go
I tried to rock you but you only can roll
The ink you split across my skin
Is sinking deeper within

I was wrong to put you up there with a ton of
dead heros
And a ton of dead songs but you came to me
like a casual dream
Slow to begin put a smile on my skin

Got a head full of new ideas
Got music bleeding from my ears
And people who believe in me
I got miles and miles of things to see
and nothing relates to you and me
And I know what I am and I know that I'm right

My arms were reaching not to let you go
I tried to rock you but you only can roll
The ink you split across my skin
Is sinking deeper within
yea, yea yea yea
yea, yea yea yea

My arms were reaching not to let you go
I tried to rock you but you only can roll
The ink you split across my skin yea
Is sinking deeper within

My arms were reaching not to let you go
I tried to rock you but you only can roll
The ink you split across my skin
Is sinking deeper within
Oh no
Oh no
The ink you spilt across my skin yea
Is sinking deeper within

Panic-Stricken

Walking through a crowded mall
when I was small
And mama's hand led the way
Then something caught my eye and I turned
to look toward the shine
And mama's hand would no longer wait

I turned around and it began standing there
panic stricken
Every face became the same everyone shouting
out names and my heart could
Not be tamed, so I stand to call out

Oh mama don't let me go
Cause you know how much I need you
Oh mama don't let me go
Cause you know how much I need you
Cause I need I need you
I need you right now

Walking now no longer small
Been 20 years or more
And I had his hand and we walked some way
Introspection caught my eye and I turned inside
for some time
But his hand would no longer wait
I turned around and it began standing there
panic stricken
Every face became the same everyone shouting
out names and my heart could
Not be tamed, so I stand to call out

Oh mama don't let me go
Cause you know how much I need you
Oh mama don't let me go
Cause you know how much I need you
Cause I need I need you
Yea I need, I need you
Yea I need, I need you
I need you right now
Mama, mama
Mama, mama

Sunny Sunday

I couldn't sleep his skin it smelled so sweet
I couldn't stay, I'm sorry I had to creep away
I closed the door and left you there and your
shirt on the chair
Oh sunny Sunday valentine honey
My sunny Sunday valentine honey

His eyes are blue yea yea
the nights don't justify you
Oh sunny Sunday valentine honey
You're my sunny Sunday valentine honey

I'm naughty yea, it's true
I didn't mean to sneak up on you
Oh sunny Sunday valentine honey
My sunny Sunday valentine honey

We talk of music
We talk of touch
I didn't mean to like you so much
Oh sunny Sunday valentine honey
You're my sunny valentine honey

Serenade

Clock watching and lounge listening
Waiting for my colors to shine
Swimming pools of broken fools
Whose love is deeper whose is true
I will contend my love for you
Eventually

Serenade my love
Is all I can do
And I know yes, I know it's wrong to be so
Vigilant and so far gone
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on

Talking to myself
I won't be like the rest
No one see's what lives inside me
I can't even taste it myself
Eventually

Serenade my love
Is all I can do
And I know yes, I know it's wrong to be so
Vigilant and so far gone
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on

My love is as fierce as the seas
That swells and swallows the space between him
and me
Eventually

Serenade my love
Is all I can do
Yes I know yes, I know it's wrong to be so
Vigilant and so far gone
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
Serenade my love
Serenade my love

Weak Strong Heart

I have a weak strong heart, suffers every time
we are apart
In my small room
Carries the dark and the gloom
Of every long day
In my window the trees they sway

And it's so hard to find you in this cold world
designed to bleed you grieve you
and the dark nights proceed through
And it's so hard to find you in this cold world
designed to bleed you grieve you
and the dark nights proceed through

He has a mean, mean way don't listen to his
heart what to say
Goes to the river, crosses the bridge
Leaves his possessions, if they don't come with

And it's so hard to find you in this cold world
designed to bleed you grieve you
and the dark nights proceed through
And it's so hard to find you in this cold world
designed to bleed you grieve you
and the dark nights proceed through

So hollow, so hollow without you
And the girl's girls play
When I say go I mean stay
You should know this by now
How many women does it take to
show you how?

And it's so hard to find you in this cold world
designed to bleed you grieve you
and the dark nights proceed through
And it's so hard to find you in this cold world
designed to bleed you grieve you
and the dark nights proceed through

Promise to Try

All the shadows have made ladders and
all that mattered
Yes all that matters, has lifted from view
As I'm gazing at stars, counting parked cars
I can't stop missing you

so leave the light on
I know you think I've gone
Let time go
Let the rivers flow
You back to me
As we're living on our own days
In our own fashioned ways
I'm silently with you

Round and round is where we go
And where we stop nobody knows
Drunken dream or broken seam
It doesn't matter how you find me
My arms are reaching for you and my lips are
waiting to adore you
I promise to try

All the songs we
Listened to me
They won't escape me
Please don't escape me
Baby I'm bound for you
As letters hit my door
And my armor hits the floor
Can you prove them wrong

Round and round is where we go
And where we stop nobody knows
Drunken dream or broken seam
It doesn't matter how you find me
My arms are reaching for you and my lips are
waiting to adore you
Promise to try

Please don't die
I promise to try
Please don't die
Promise to try
The world is much better with you in it
The world's much better with us in it

Round and round is where we go
And where we stop nobody knows
Drunken dream or broken seam
It doesn't matter how you find me
My arms are reaching for you and my lips are
waiting to adore you
Promise to try

Round and round is where we go
And where we stop nobody knows
Drunken dream or broken seam
It doesn't matter how you find me
My arms are reaching for you and my lips are
waiting to adore you
