I Smile just smile Hold it for the camera And don't let it down You're old enough to know better Or at least understand The lightning in your hands Is just another flash So let it fly II Deal baby deal And don't bet to high Nothing's understood Even with the cards down You thought you'd played a flush All the hearts were red But in the end The jack was made of diamonds III Look baby look See what you did here And don't misunderstand There's a way to stand On these distant shores Only way that you can Love me in a year Is if you learn to know better

Verse I It happened to me boy It happened to you You had to stand aside And now you're through Doncha worry now boy It'll be okay They'll be another round To get your say Verse II It happened to me boy It happened to you You got punched in the mouth She ran you through Dress that wound now boy You gotta breathe Even if she went on To let you bleed Chorus Don't stand there, bob and sway Close your eyes quietly, walk away No use hanging out when that birds flown You won't always be alone Verse III It happened to me boy Just like you Found that same scar Didn't know what to do Came from a different blade Same jagged steel Wipe the rust off The wound will heal

Don't ask for forgiveness Don't ask for a line Grab your dancing boots Put away your dimes Cause when the night rolls in None of it's be true And all we keep Are pictures of you Baby, just tell me whyyyyy you weep Last thing anyone needs is more sleep Cause when the night rolls in None of it's be true And all we keep Are pictures of you Ohhh, the night sky Ohhh, it's bright Ohhh, the night sky Yeah, it's alive Take a bottle, take a pill Just follow the hum Everything's a plenty So just have your fun Cause when the night rolls in None of it's be true And all we keep Are pictures of you Ahhh, the sunlight Ahhh, it's near Ahhh, the sunlight it...it..., makes me feel

Verse I Take the time to see me fly from mountain tops that never fall And as the sun comes out The flowers turn to smile Verse II How much time is left Sand in the hands that never close But when I hold you near There's nothing left to do Chorus In a great wide open It's easy It's easy Nothing left to do But easy Verse III Meet me meet me in the river in the shade we'll never leave Like the pools and pockets We'll circle 'round Chorus

I can't see, any other way around it And I can't be, any other way you found me Layin in a last warm night, smiling at the fool alive, Come morning time, white coals turn to grey Cause we can see, all tall fires have to die And you groove and you groove and you groove groove groove Verse II You can be, any other kind of person That you want, but you gotta bear a burden Layin in a last warm night, smiling at the fool alive, Which makes me see, there's no other way around it Its the dance, that makes us keep on holding on I can't tell Exactly why I can't tell Exactly why So you can't be, any other kind of person I can see, that'll be what draws the curtain We groove and we groove and we groove groove groove We'll just groove and we'll groove and we'll groove groove groove

Sorry I kicked your castle over But the sand got in my eyes Maybe build it somewhere else Where the people are warm and nice Verse II Sorry I kicked your castle over But the sand got in my eyes Maybe build it somewhere else Where the people are warm and nice Any way we look at it There's nothing I can do Any way we slice the pie That arrow it points at you Sorry I kicked your castle over But the sand got in my eyes I can't change a dollar And get back seven dimes Forgetting about that thirty cents Would be a fucking crime Verse III Meeting in the middle No it just won't due The clock is ticking anyway Sorry, but you're through Sorry I kicked your castle over But the sand got in my eyes Chorus II Money isn't everything, Sure, that's true But the gold I'm searching for It ain't inside of you Sorry I kicked your castle over But the sand got in my eyes Maybe build it somewhere else Where the people are warm and nice

I try and try and try and try but never know what to say Got a ticket for the show, but I don't think that I'll stay Singing from the inside, just forget the tune So step outta line and get back in the queue I try and try but I can never find my way into this distant space You lead. I follow. Then I get so lost But I never quite see your face But I never quite see your face But I never can remember Where exactly we've been You lead. I follow. Then I can't quite see Lead me through the weeds Lead me right into the weeds You try and try and try and try, you always know what to say Curtains always rise and fall, even when the lights are out Couldn't ever hear you, cause always know what to say And the show must go on, no matter what you say

To catch a criminal you must do as he does and do as he thinks To catch a criminal you must do as he does and do as he says To see his face you must take his place and run in his race I could never find in his mind and do as he does Couldn't quite see it never could beleive it what they say They tell me again and again to think of him as a friend. But his eyes are black they never look back I just don't care

Verse I In the shadow from above You stretched out on the stone Twisted crystals in the wind Never coming home again Search and search and search To never be alone Sleep came to you on the stone In the shadow from above Chorus I I can't tell And I can't wait I can't see Call it fate Verse II In the shadow of her love You cracked through the stone of one Twisted crystals in the rain Screaming at the wind, to feel sane Search and search and search you try Hoping to be that guy The stone it breaks, you feel so sane Twisted crystals under rain Chorus II I can't tell And I can't wait I can't see Call it fate Nooooo reason why Verse I In the shadow from above You stretched out on the stone Twisted crystals in the wind Never coming home again Search and search and search To never be alone Sleep came to you on the stone In the shadow from above
