  • Long as I remember
    The rain been comin' down.
    Clouds of myst'ry pourin'
    Confusion on the ground.
    Good men through the ages,
    Tryin' to find the sun;
    And I wonder, Still I wonder,
    Who'll stop the rain.

    Come a little bit closer
    Hear what I have to say
    Just like children sleepin'
    We could dream this night away.

    But there's a full moon risin'
    Let's go dancin' in the light
    We know where the music's playin'
    Let's go out and feel the night.

    Because I'm still in love with you
    I want to see you dance again
    Because I'm still in love with you
    On this harvest moon.

    When we were strangers
    I watched you from afar
    When we were lovers
    I loved you with all my heart.

    But now it's gettin' late
    And the moon is climbin' high
    I want to celebrate
    See it shinin' in your eye.

    Because I'm still in love with you
    I want to see you dance again
    Because I'm still in love with you
    On this harvest moon.
    Come a little bit closer
    Hear what I have to say
    Just like children sleepin'
    We could dream this night away

    But there's a full moon risin'
    Let's go dancin' in the light
    We know where the music's playin'
    Let's go out and feel the night

    Because I'm still in love with you
    I want to see you dance again
    Because I'm still in love with you
    On this harvest moon

    When we were strangers
    I watched you from afar
    When we were lovers
    I loved you with all my heart

    But now it's gettin' late
    And the moon is climbin' high
    I want to celebrate
    See it shinin' in your eye

    Because I'm still in love with you
    I want to see you dance again
    Because I'm still in love with you
    On this harvest moon

    Do you spend your days counting the hours you're awake,
    And when night covers the sky you find yourself doing the same.
    It's a burden, you've been bearing
    In spite of all your prayers,
    As a light turns off inside your heart,
    Can you remember what it's like to care?
    ...
    So give me the drug,
    Keep me alive,
    Give me what's left of my life,
    Don't let me go.
    Pull this plug,
    Let me breathe,
    On my own I'm finally free,
    Don't let me go.
    There's plenty for all.

    Out of luck and out of tune
    Half a day and I'm confused
    Love may wash away the bruise
    But I still ain't over you

    Damn the day that I forgot
    Came so close and almost lost
    It's been one year and fourteen months
    But I still ain't over you

    Hey, I'm the blood in your veins
    I'm a colding rain
    Love you hard when it rains
    Time, no it ain't all aside
    On the truth she lies
    Love your tear when you cry

    Back and forth and side to side
    Right ain't wrong if wrong ain't right
    I will love you day and night
    'Cause I still ain't over you

    Hey, I'm the blood in your veins
    I'm a colding rain
    Love you hard when it rains
    Time, no it ain't all aside
    On the truth she lies
    Love your tear when you cry

    'Cause when the walls come crashing in
    When flames come coasting in
    Just remember time again
    I still ain't over you

    Oh hey, I'm the blood in your veins
    I'm a colding rain
    Love you hard when it rains
    Time, no it ain't all aside
    'Cause on the truth she lies
    Love your tear when you cry

  • I thought I knew you
    But I was in for a suprise
    I let my love flow
    From my heart into your eyes
    And then I found out
    That there was nothing
    I could know
    Or guess about you
    You'd go as far as you could go
    And it took me years
    to figure out
    That there was nothing
    I could give to you
    Years to figure out
    That there was nothing
    You would take from me
    And how can I describe
    The way you slowly put
    My hope away
    And all of the time
    I thought I knew you
    I thought I knew you
    But I wasn't even close

    Hey I think this is getting to me
    First class living in a goldfish bowl

    Just when i think
    I have driven my life
    Where I wanted it to be

    It takes me to a place
    That I do not want to go

    All I ever wanted to do
    Was to learn how to break
    This world in two

    To teach it all the tricks
    I wanted it to learn
    To teach it how to do
    What I want it to do

    No one really understands
    How simple and plain
    And predictable I am

    Because all I ever wanted to do
    Was to play guitar
    In a rock and roll band
    Now I'm just losing my hair and I'm
    Learning how to smile
    Like I just don't care

    No I just don't care
    (I hear them under their breath)
    No, I just don't care
    (What they say when they think that I can't hear them)
    I see them point and I see them stare
    There goes that stupid guy
    With the short blonde hair

    -EverClear

    Granted I don't have short blonde hair right now...... :mrgreen:

  • Such is the way of the world
    You can never know
    Just where to put all your faith
    And how will it grow

    Gonna rise up
    Burning back holes in dark memories
    Gonna rise up
    Turning mistakes into gold

    Such is the passage of time
    Too fast to fold
    And suddenly swallowed by signs
    Low and behold

    Gonna rise up
    Find my direction magnetically
    Gonna rise up
    Throw down my ace in the hole

  • Your mind and your experience call to me
    You have lived and your intelligence is sexy
    I want to know what you got to say
    I can tell you taste like the sky
    cause you look like rain
    You look like rain

  • You say that I misheard you but I think you misspoke
    I hear you laugh so loudly while I patiently await the joke

    I don't want to wait a lifetime
    Yours or mine, yours or mine
    Can't you see me reaching for the lifeline?
    The lifeline, the lifeline

    It's a crime with only victims
    We're all laid out in a row
    It's hardest to listen to what we already should know

    Am I loud and clear or am I breaking up?
    Am I still your charm or am I just bad luck?
    Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?

    I'll show you mine if you show me yours first
    Let's compare scars I'll tell you whose is worse
    Let's unwrite these pages and replace them with our own words

  • You say forever
    And I confess I shiver
    You say hope

    There is a heaven

  • Underneath her skin and jewellery
    Hidden in her words and eyes
    There's a wall that's cold and ugly
    And she's scared as hell

    Trembling at the thought of feeling
    Wide awake and keeping distance
    Nothing seems to penetrate her
    'Cause she's scared as hell

    I am frightened too
    I am frightened too
    I am scared like you
    I am frightened

    I awake to find the devil
    Sitting near my bed.
    We have a conversation
    ...........he says:

    Good morning mr. cut-throat
    These are most exciting times
    We are surrounded by fools and crooks,
    Strangers that give us dirty looks,
    So many different people to despise

    I'm a living sunset
    Lightning in my bones
    Push me to the edge
    But my will is stone

    Fools will be fools
    And wise will be wise
    But i will look this world
    Straight in the eyes

    What good is a man
    Who won't take a stand
    What good is a cynic
    With no better plan

    Reality is sharp
    It cuts at me like a knife
    Everyone i know
    Is in the fight of their life

    Take your face out of your hands
    And clear your eyes
    You have a right to your dreams
    And don't be denied

    I believe in a better way

    'Well I'm loaded and ready
    Calmly holding steady
    Looking for a sign to show me when
    Well I'm waiting and willing
    The clarity is chilling
    But I'm not turning back
    And neither can you

    I need someone to pull the trigger
    'cause there's a hole in my heart getting bigger
    And everything I'll ever be I've been
    And I need someone to pull the trigger
    So if you're what I think you'll be
    If you're who I think I see -- shoot

    So hold me and love me
    Tie me up and drug me
    'cause I'm not gonna beg you for my life'

    If you hold her up be sure to help her down
    If you burn it up you’ll take the ashes to the ground
    If you grow it up keep its roots deep, deep down
    If you set it up be sure to set it down

    Searching, searching for close
    Closeness to the people that I love the most
    I feel you, in everything I do
    Everything I do comes back to you
    There are spirits of evil and grace
    Intrusion of mind intrusion of space
    I’m sorry because everything I do
    Everything I do comes back to you
    I feel you in everything I do
    Because everything I do comes back to you

    'I, I love the colorful clothes she wears
    And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
    I hear the sound of a gentle word
    On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air.....

    .....Close my eyes
    Shes somehow closer now
    Softly smile, I know she must be kind
    When I look in her eyes
    She goes with me to a blossom world'

    "I only see myself reflected in your eyes
    So all that I believe I am essentially are lies
    And everything I've hoped to be or ever thought I was
    Died with your belief in me so who the hell am I?

    ...

    I stare into this mirror
    So tired of this life
    If only you would speak to me or care if I'm alive
    Once I swore I would die for you
    But I never meant it like this
    I never meant like this
    no i never meant like this

    DROWNED

    There are men high up there fishing
    Haven't seen quite enough of the world.
    I ain't seen a sign of my heroes
    And I'm still diving down for pearls.

    O let me flow into the ocean,
    Let me get back to the sea.
    Let me be stormy and let me be calm,
    Let the tide in and set me free.

    I'm flowing under bridges,
    Then flying through the sky,
    I'm traveling down cold metal,
    Just a tear in baby's eye.

    Let me flow into the ocean
    Let me get back to the sea.
    Let me be stormy and let me be calm,
    Let the tide in, rush over me.

    I am not the actor
    This can't be the scene
    But I am in the water
    As far as I can see. . . .

    I'm remembering distant memories,
    Recalling other names.
    Rippling over canyons,
    And boiling in the trains.

    Let me flow into the ocean,
    Let me get back to the sea.
    Let me be stormy and let me be calm,
    Let the tide in and set me free.
    Set me free. . . .

    I want to drown in your sweet sweet love. . . .
