White Turns Blue

You're the Only One

Well I saw you with your hands above your head
Spinning around, trying not to look down
But you did, and you fell, hard on the ground
Then you stumbled around for a good ten minutes
And I said I'd never seen anyone look so dumb before
And you laughed and said I still know how to turn you on though

You're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I mean

And I probably forgot to tell you this
Like that time when I forgot to tell you about the scar
Remember how uncomfortable that made you feel?
See you're not what I expected
But you're the only one who knows how to handle me
And you're such a great kisser and I know that you agree

And you're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I mean

I hope you can forgive me for that time
When I put my hand between your legs
And said it was small
Cause it's really not at all
I guess there's just a part of me that likes to bring you down
Just to keep you around
Cause the day that you realize how amazing you are
You're gonna leave me

And you're the only one who
Holds my hair back when I'm drunk and get sick
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I need

You're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I mean
Exactly what I mean

Well I saw you with your hands above your head
Spinning around, trying not to look down
But you did, and you fell, hard on the ground

What's Another Day

"You gave this way more thought then it deserved."
You say as I tell you about my fear of rejection
I wouldn't know better then to get scared
Cause since we've met we've had this great connection
"You know concrete colored buildings all grow stale,"
You say as I look up dreaming
I know better than to include the both of us
But I can't sleep when you're gone and you say,
"What's another day?"

This stage of oblivion I find comfortable
And prior to this I never spoke.
You say you understand my absence now,
And why I never tell jokes.
"You know concrete colored buildings all grow stale,"
You say as I look up dreaming.
I know better than to include the both of us.
But I can't sleep when you're gone and you say,
"What's another day?" when we're already getting use to gray
"What's another day?" when inspiration grows out from this
"What's another day?" when silence is the next best thing to bliss,
And we're all getting used to hearing you say...

"You know concrete colored buildings all grow stale,"
You say as I look up dreaming.
I know better than to include the both of us.
But I can't sleep when you're gone and you say,
"You know concrete colored buildings all grow stale,"
You say as I look up dreaming.
I know better than to include the both of us.
But I can't sleep when you're gone and you say,
"What's another day?"

Fragile (Free)

I've been walking around all day thinking
I think I have a problem, I think I think too much
I've been taught to hold back my tears and avoid them
But you've made pain into something I could touch

I've been walking around all day laughing
Think I'd be better off without you here
And I bet you're sweet and hard to get over
So I'll cry and people will stop and stare
Now that's ok, let em stop and stare

Cause I am fragile
I am hopeless
I'm not perfect
But I am free

I've been walking around all day waiting
And waiting is all I seem to do
Cause I never get it unless I'm fed it
But this time I'll just have to
Yeah, this time I'll just have to

And I'm fragile
I am hopeless
I'm not perfect
But I am free

Say you're not around, am I finished?
If you're not around that's too bad
Hope you're safe and sound, not alone now
Cause you know I believe in you

But I'm still fragile
I'm still hopeless
I'm not perfect
But I am free

And I'm fragile
I am hopeless
I'm not perfect
But I am free

And oh I'm fragile
Hopeless
I'm not perfect
But I am free

Lose Control

Oh shame on you for making me wait
Time and time again you're too late
And I'm about to make a mistake
So please hurry babe
Oh just hurry

You might as well just take it from me
You said that I should take it from you
But I don't know if I agree
So please hurry babe
But don't you worry

Cause I'm not convinced that I am worthy of your time
And I will do what it takes to make you mine
So sit back, relax, enjoy my show
This could be funny
Oh, I'm about to lose control oh

My back is acing, my feet are sore
But I'm still waiting, looking for more
I'm gonna stay here on the floor
But just you hurry babe
Oh just hurry

Cause I'm not convinced that I am worthy of your time
And I will do what it takes to make you mine
So sit back, relax, enjoy my show
This could be funny
Cause I'm about to lose control oh oh

Cause I'm not convinced that I am worthy of your time
And I will do what it takes to make you mine
So sit back, relax, enjoy my show
This could be funny
Oh I'm about to lose control oh oh oh

Just a Little Bit

Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy
And maybe I'd get there

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner
And maybe I'd get there

Clearly, clearly I remember
Hiking up my skirt
And asking for your time

Clearly, clearly I remember
Nervous if ever confronted
And questioning myself

Oh perhaps, perhaps if I got better
Perhaps if I challenged myself
Perhaps if I was

Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy
And maybe I'd get there

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner
And maybe I'd get there

Clearly, clearly I remember
Pulling up my shirt
Staring blank ahead

Clearly, clearly I remember
Days of useless crying
And almost feeling dead

Oh perhaps, perhaps if I was smaller
Perhaps, I could control myself
Perhaps if I was

Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy
And maybe I'd get there

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner
And maybe I'd get there

Just a little bit stronger
Just a little bit wiser
Just a little less needy
And maybe I'd get there

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner
And maybe I'd get there
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

Just a little bit pretty
Just a little more aware
Just a little bit thinner
And maybe I'd get there

Shadow

I wish you'd see it in my face
But I'm caught up in those long lost days
And how can I even make you see
When I don't even know me

Following my footsteps home
This time I'm walking all alone
Trying hard to be someone I don't even know

I feel like a shadow
Walking behind who you think I am
Just like my shadow
Wanting to see the sun again
I'm your shadow
And I'm lost
Just like my

Thought I'd like me bright and new
But my candle burned out long before you
Now I'm the one whose got to pay
I'm finding me a better day

Following my footsteps home
This time I'm walking all alone
Trying hard to be someone I don't even know

I feel like a shadow
Walking behind who you think I am
Just like my shadow
Wanting to see the sun again
I'm your shadow
And I'm lost
Just like my shadow

Sun bright as my life
I can hardly comprehend
Sun bright as my life
I cannot understand

I feel like a shadow
Walking behind who you think I am
Just like my shadow
Wanting to see the sun again
I'm your shadow
And I'm lost
Just like my shadow

Blame It On Me

The rain falls on your days
Giving you a reason for mysterious ways
Behind doors the darkness falls
You pour a cup of coffee, and get talking walls

But you can blame it on me
And the person you thought I wanted you to be
But don't you blame it on love
Cause you will regret it then, and from now on

Besides from days gone by
Hours seem so slow you think you'll surely die
You decide to call up a friend
When she doesn't answer you are close to the end

But you can blame it on me
And the person you thought I wanted you to be
But don't you blame it on love
Cause you will regret it then, and from now on

But you can blame it on me
And the person you thought I wanted you to be
But don't you blame it on love
Cause you will regret it then, and from now on

But you can blame it on me
And the person you thought I wanted you to be
But don't you blame it on love
Cause you will regret it then, and from now on

But you can blame it on me
And the person you thought I wanted you to be
But don't you blame it on love
Cause you will regret it then, and from now on

But you can blame it on me
And the person you thought I wanted you to be
But don't you blame it on love
Cause you will regret it then, and from now on

(And the person you thought I wanted you)
(Cause you will regret it then)
(And the person you thought I wanted you)
(Cause you will regret it then)

Your Glasses

What could you possibly see in me
Is my soul hung out to dry
I think my dysfunctional family
Has shaped it throughout my life

What could you possibly like in me
Do you like my ability to bend
I think my fear of intimacy
Has shaped the time we spend

No it's not you
It's me
And it's not us
It's them
And it's not her
It's just the way she moves you
And she kisses harder than me
Well she kisses harder than me

And I've always looked in through your glasses
But all I could see
Is the spector of me reflected
The empty shell of me
The empty shell of me

What could you possibly love in me
Is it the way I wear my smile
It hangs from the tip of my tonge you see
Oh this might take a while

And it's not you, it's me
And it's not us, it's them
Sure it's not her, it's just the way she moves you
And she kisses harder than me
Well she kisses harder than me

And I've always looked in through your glasses
But all I could see
Is the spector of me reflected
The empty shell of me
The empty shell of me

And I've always looked in through your glasses
But all I could see
Is the spector of me reflected
The empty shell of me

And I've tried to look in through your glasses
But all I could see
Is the spector of me reflected
The empty shell of me
The empty shell of me

My Lullaby

Mom, please tell me what to do,
I'm so disappointed in you
You said those words that make me cry,
And you always wondered why
Why I sing my lullaby

Mom, please hurry home to me,
I waited up so patiently
You sit down and you start to cry,
But you never ask me why
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby

Was it my fault they led you in the wrong direction?
Was it my fault they didn't show you any affection?
I show you when I start to cry
Still you always wonder why
Why I sing my lullaby

Mom, why love me if you're cold
You'll just get bitter then grow old
Ask me when I start to weep
Then I'll tell you in my sleep
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby
Why I sing my lullaby

Sorry

Vauge sound of rain
Pierces through my song again
But I get distracted by the way his toes move when he plays
So I let it burn

I just poured my heart out
There's bits of it on the floor
And I take what's left of it and rinse it under cold water
And call him up for more

And I say baby, yes I feel stupid to call you, but I'm lonely
And I don't think you meant it when you said you couldn't love me
And I thought maybe if I kissed the way you do, you'd feel it too

He said I'm sorry
So sorry
I'm sorry
So sorry

He grabs my wrists
As my fingers turn into angry fists
And I whisper why can't you love me, I'll change for you
I'll play the part

And I say baby, so I feel stupid to call you, but I'm lonely
And I don't think you meant it when you said you couldn't love me
And I thought maybe if I kissed the way you do, you'd feel it too

He said I'm sorry
So sorry
I'm sorry
I am sorry

He said I'm sorry
So sorry
I'm sorry
I am sorry

Take You With Me

November came down hard this year
And I saw you standing clear of the rain
Falling free but I was ready to finally come clean

Observe me, in my circus show
On a thin line, as I take the rope and lose my grip

But you, you pull me back with
Your hand in my hand,
And our feet all in line.
I'm ready, oh, to take you with me
To take you with me.

November came down hard this year
And I saw you standing clear of the rain
Falling free but I was ready to finally come

And our feet all in line
I'm ready, oh, to take you with me
To take you with me

Your hand in my hand,
And our feet all in line.
I'm ready, oh, to take you with me.
To take you with me

A Few Small Bruises

Out here on the ledge
I'm not far away from stepping off
I finally picked out my cloud
It's the one over there
Surrounded by all that air
You reached out your hand
And said "I understand"
So why not come down

Well except for a few small bruises
Cuts and scars, well I'm fine
Oh except for a few small bruises
Cuts and scars, well I'm fine

Thank you for asking
I'm so glad we had this moment here
I know they think I'm crazy
But everything I am is everything I was taught to me
And you reached out your hand
And said "I understand"
So why not come down?

Oh except for a few small bruises,
Cuts, and scars, well I'm fine
Oh except for a few small bruises,
Cuts, and scars, well I'm fine oh

And as you read my words out loud
Make me sound genius
Make me sound special
And maybe I'll come down oh

Well except for a few small bruises
Cuts and scars, well I'm fine
Well except for a few small bruises
Cuts and scars, well I'm fine oh

And as you read my words out loud
Make me sound genius
Make me sound special
And maybe I'll come down
