CALM DOWN
STRAIGHT OUT OF JAIL, "SAID" HE'S
CAUSING PROBLEMS AGAIN
THIS TIME HE'S SURE THEY'LL REMEMBER
HIM
HE FIRES ONCE, HE FIRES TWICE
SAYS "IT'S AS EASY AS MEN AND MICE"
AND THE POSTERS ON HIS WALL FALL
SILENT NOW
KEEP QUIET IT'S ALL COMING DOWN
AND ON HIS ARMS THE WORDS LIFE
CALM DOWN KEEP THIS INSIDE KEEP
THIS INSIDE

CALM DOWN CALM DOWN THIS IS ONLY
THE END

NOW CHILD THERE'S NO REASON TO POINT
CAUSE THERE'S A WRONG AND THERE'S A
RIGHT
A YOUNG MAN HOLDS UP A BROWN SIGN
SAYS "I'M SORRY, BUT CAN YOU SPARE A DIME"
NOW THERE'S NO REASON TO TAKE A SIDE
DO YOU STILL THINK THE "KIDS ARE ALRIGHT?"
MR. ARE YOU BLIND? OR HAVE YOU LOST
YOUR SIGHT?

WHERE'S YOUR GOD IN THIS? WHERE'S YOUR GOD IN THIS??

STRAIGHT OUT OF JAIL, "SAID" HE'S CAUSING PROBLEMS AGAIN
THIS TIME HE'S SURE THEY'LL REMEMBER
HIM

AGAIN & AGAIN
I, I HAVE A GUN
A BROKEN PROMISE KEPT SO WELL
I, I HAVE GUN
A REASON WHY WE'RE ALL GOING TO
HELL

AND IT'S ONE STEP FORWARD AND ONE
STEP BACK
AND WE DO THIS AGAIN AND AGAIN
AND IT'S ONE STEP FORWARD AND ONE
STEP BACK
AND WE DO THIS AGAIN AND AGAIN

THE ROAD CALLS MY NAME
MY DREAMS ARE STILL THE SAME
YOU KNOW NOTHING CHANGES
BUT NOTHING STAYS THE SAME

...PRETTY, PRETTY, PRETTY ONES
WE WALK HAND IN HAND
MY EMPTY, MY EMPTY THOUGHTS
WE WALK HAND IN HAND

ALL MY FRIENDS GET HIGH
AND EVERY GODDAMN DAY
ALL MY FRIENDS WITH TIME
FADE, FADEAWAY

---

THE LONG WAY DOWN
WITH THE T.V ON STATIC,
TURN THE VOLUME DOWN
THE LIGHT IN THE OTHER ROOM FLICKERS
BUT THE HOUSE FALL SILENT NOW

AND ITS A LONG WAY DOWN...

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE PAST TO
BREAK YOUR HEART
OR SO THEY SAY
BUT THERE'S NOTHING LIKE TOMORROW
TO MAKE YOU MISS
...ALL THOSE YESTERDAYS

AND IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN
AND IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN
AND IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN
AND IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN...
TO HIT THE BOTTOM

IN THE CANDLELIGHT,
LOSE HOPE WATCH IT FADE AWAY
AND AS THE SMOKE HITS YOUR EYES
HIT MY KNEES BEGIN TO PRAY

THAT IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN

A HARD RAIN'S COMING
OR SO THEY SAY
BUT THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE RAIN
TO WASH BACK
...ALL THOSE YESTERDAYS

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE THE PAST TO
BREAK YOUR HEART
OR SO THEY SAY
BUT THERE'S NOTHING LIKE TOMORROW
TO MAKE YOU MISS
...ALL THOSE YESTERDAYS

LOSING YOU
SHUFFLE OF FEET, BEATING OF HEARTS
FEELS LIKE IT'S OVER BEFORE IT
STARTS
AND THE DAYS THAT JUST DON'T LAST
LIFE'S PASSING US BY SO FAST

AND IF FEELS LIKE I'M LOSING YOU
I'M LOSING HOLD OF THE ONE THAT I
KNEW
I'M LOSING TOUCH OF THE THINGS
THAT I DO
AND IT FEELS LIKE I'M LOSING YOU

TIRED EYES AND AN UNMADE BED
BUSY CITY STREETS BUZZING IN MY
HEAD
ALL THE WORDS THAT COME OUT WRONG
THE DAYS ARE SHORT BUT THE NIGHTS
ARE LONG

AND IT FEELS LIKE I'M LOSING YOU
I'M LOSING HOLD OF THE ONE THAT I
KNEW
I'M LOSING TOUCH OF THE THINGS
THAT I DO
AND IT FEELS LIKE I'M LOSING YOU

YOU CAN BLAME IT ALL ON FATE
I TRY SO HARD OT RELATE
ANOTHER MEMORY FADES AWAY
YOU'RE NOT ALONE BUT YOU'RE NOT OK

---

LYNN
LYNN, THERE'S A LIGHT OVER YOUR
HOUSE TONIGHT
IT'S TRYING TO GUIDE ME HOME,
TRYING TO GUIDE ME WHERE I BELONG
LYNN, GOD KNOWS WE'VE BEEN DOWN
WELL SOME DAYS ARE SO LONG WHEN
YOU'RE ON YOUR WON
LYNN, GET OFF OF THAT LEDGE IN
YOUR MIND
WE'VE BEEN THERE ONE TOO MANY
TIMES,
WE BOTH KNOW THERE'S NOTHING TO
SAY
I'VE BEEN RUNNING FROM MYSELF FOR
SO LONG
I DON'T EXPECT YOU TO LOVE WHO I
AM TODAY

LYNN, IT'S NIGHTTIME IN THE PARIRIES
I CAN SEE SHOOTING STARS LIGHTING
UP YOUR FACE, LIGHTING UP YOUR
FACE
LYNN, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'VE BEEN
TIRED FOR TOO LONG
AS THE SMOKE RINGS OF YOUR MIND
FADE AWAY
LYNN, THERE'S ALWAYS THAT MOMENT
WHEN EVERYTHING JUST STOPS
AND WE'RE ALL THE SAME, WE'RE ALL
THE SAME
I'VE BEEN RUNNING FROM MYSELF FOR
SO LONG
I DON'T EXPECT YOU TO LOVE WHO I
AM TODAY

THAT WIRE
IN THE DARK OF THE NIGHT
SHE SMILES LIKE THE ROOF COULD
CAVE IN
SHE WALKS BACK AND FORTH
SAYS "BOYS, TAKE 'EM IN"
AND SHE TALKS WITH A SNARL
SO YOU KNOW SHE DOESN'T MEAN IT AT ALL
SHE DOESN'T MEAN IT AT ALL

IN THE NIGHT SHE'D SAY THINGS LIKE
'CAN WE JUST LIE IN BED?,
LISTEN TO THE MISERY INSIDE MY
HEAD"
AND SHE TALKS OF THE "WAR OF ART"
IN THE WAY LOVE'S SUCH A MYSTERY
WELL THAT, DOESN'T MEAN MUCH TO ME
LIKE IT ONCE DID

PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME HANGING ON
THAT WIRE,
CAUSE IF YOU GET RID OF THE FLAMES
YOU GET RID OF THE FIRE
AND YOU CAN'T BE AFRAID TO LET
LOVE TAKE YOU HIGHER
PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME HANGING ON
THAT WIRE

SHE PACES THE ROOM SAYS THINGS
LIKE
"HONEY DOES IT FEEL LIKE A MONDAY?"
WELL HONEY...DOES IT FEEL LIKE IT
SHOULD?
AND SHE SITS IN THE CORNER AND
TALKS ABOUT SOMEDAYS
WELL... SOMEDAYS ARE NEVER THAT
GOOD

DRAGGING ME DOWN
MORNING SICKNESS AND I'M SUCH A
FOOL
WELL.. I LIED TO YOU.
AND EVERYTHING I SAID I WOULDN'T DO
WELL... I LIED TO YOU
AND YOU SAID BABY, AND YOU SAID
BABY
WHEN YOU GONNA STOP "DRAGGING ME
DOWN"

WORN OUT SHOES AND A WORN OUT
MIND
WELL I'D STAY WITH YOU TONIGHT
BROKEN SMILE AND BLOOD SHOT EYES
WELL I'D STAY WITH YOU TONIGHT
AND YOU SAID BABY, AND YOU SAID
BABY
WHEN YOU GONNA STOP "DRAGGING ME
DOWN"

WE SLEEP WITH THE FISH WITH NO
FEELING IN THIS LOW LIGHT
IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT?
AND IT DIGS US OUT FROM THE INSIDE
IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT?
AND YOU SAID BABY, AND YOU SAID
BABY
WHEN YOU GONNA STOP "DRAGGING ME
DOWN"

MORNING SICKNESS AND I'M SUCH A
FOOL
WELL... I LIED TO YOU
AND EVERYTHING I SAID I WOULDN'T
DO
WELL... I LIED TO YOU
AND YOU SAID BABY, AND YOU SAID
BABY
WHEN YOU GONNA STOP "DRAGGING ME
DOWN"

DON'T FORGET
IF I STOP WRITING LOVE SONGS
WOULD THAT MAKE YOU SMILE?
IF I CUT TIES WITH MY PAST
WOULD YOU BE ALRIGHT FOR A LITTLE
WHILE,
ISN'T IT FUNNY HOW EVERYONE YOU
KNOW
BECOMES EVERYONE YOU USED TO KNOW?
WITH TIME
I DON'T EVEN NEED TO TALK
CAUSE YOU KNOW ALL OF MY LINES

IN THIS TOWN WE DON'T SPEAK
AND IN THIS TOWN WE DON'T SEEK
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
AND IN THIS TOWN WERE PUPPETS ON
A STRING
AND IN THIS TOWN WE DON'T FEEL
ANYTHING
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?

IF I STOP WRITING LOVE SONGS
WOULD THAT MAKE YOU SMILE?
IF I GAVE UP ON TELLING LIES
WOULD YOU GIVE UP ALL YOUR
DENIAL
ISN'T IT FUNNY HOW EVERY BLUE SKY
TURNS BLACK WITH TIME
I DON'T EVEN NEED TO TALK
CAUSE YOU KNOW ALL OF MY LINES

DON'T FORGET TO FORGET ABOUT  ME

RAIN
RAIN,
FALLING IS THE ONLY THING YOU DO
RAIN,
FEELS LIKE I'M FALLING TOO
RAIN,
FALLING BUT YOU'VE GOT NO CLUE
YOU'RE GOING TO HIT THE GROUND

PAIN,
THE ONLY THING I KNOW IS REAL
PAIN,
AND ALL THE LITTLE THINGS YOU
MADE ME FEEL
RAIN,
FALLING BUT YOU'VE GOT NO CLUE
YOU'RE GOING TO HIT THE GROUND

RAIN,
FALLING IS THE ONLY THING YOU DO
RAIN,
FEELS LIKE I'M FALLING TO
RAIN,
FALLING BUT YOU'VE GOT NO CLUE
YOU'RE GOING TO HIT THE GROUND

AND IT WAS RAINING ON THE DAY
I WAS BORN
AND IT WILL BE RAINING ON THE DAY
THAT I GO
AND IT WAS RAINING ON THE DAY I
WAS BORN
AND IT WILL BE RAINING ON THE DAY
THAT I
GO

RAIN

NAIVE
LIFE'S A STORY WITH OUT WORDS
LOVE'S AN EMPTY BOOK FOR US TO
FILL THE PAGES
LIFE'S A ROAD WITH
TWISTS AND TURNS
WITH EVERY MISTAKE I NEVER SEEM
TO LEARN
WHAT I HAVE BEEN MISSING

HONEY DON'T BE NAIVE
AS I REACH FOR THE LAMP
AT THE FOOT OF THE BED THERE'S A
LETTER

I'VE BEEN UP AND I'VE BEEN DOWN
BUT I STILL HAVEN'T FOUND
A REASON TO KEEP ON BREATHING
AND EMPTY NIGHTS WITH LOVE ON
MIND
BUT EVERYONE I LOVE
JUST KEEPS ON LEAVING

HONEY DON'T BE NAIVE
AS I REACH FOR THE LAMP
AT THE FOOD OF THE BED...
THERE'S A LETTER...
