American Hi-Fi A Bigger Mood

i need a bigger mood

to block out the sun

i don’t wanna see what i’ve become

and you could fight your way

give back what you really want

it’s nothing special anyway

[chorus:]

yeah you’re always in my way

i’m falling faster everyday

yeah you’re always in my way

i gotta spit you out

you bring me down

everthing just crashes to the ground

cause you were always in my way

i can feel a brake

a bruise from another day

it’s hard to say just what i feel

it all seems broken now

when i’m stuck on the in between

staring at something out of reach

[repeat chorus]

go!

yeah you’re always in my way

yeah you’re always in my way

you bring me down

everthing just crashes to the ground

cause you were always in my way

cause you were always in my way

cause you were always in my way

yeah

American Hi-Fi The Everlasting Fall

Waking up late, a grey Sunday mourning

Got up on the wrong side, so go back to bed

Newspaper says, it’s gonna be raining

At least until Wednesday, but I pay no mind

The wonder of it all

Caught up in the everlasting fall

Watch the years roll by

Counting shooting stars across the sky

You can wait a whole lifetime to figure it out

The best days are the ones we forgot about

I can’t complain, it’s been such a mild winter

Flip on the TV, those shows that we love

The sun will go down, on a north Tulsa sky line

Over and over, like the day before

We know everything must have an end, we can’t pretend

It’s so nice of you to stick around

American Hi-Fi Safer On The Outside

i’m no good

i feel too small

something’s gonna burn

sink on you

drunken highways

someone take the wheel

[chorus:]

faded in the blackout you left me in

it’s safer on the outside

i’m swimming in

this kerosene it’s hard to breathe

statics got me down

i can’t sleep

i’m disconnected

everything went wrong

and certain stars

are sad and bruised like

someone’s cheating heart

[repeat chorus 3x]

got me down, got me down, got me down

safer on the outside, safer on the outside

safer on the outside

American Hi-Fi Portland

Left without goodbye to the city

To find a quiet place of our own

A little house on the hill

Yeah, I can see you still

Your golden hair and moonlight

40 California stars

The dream you’d come and never came

It seems our dreams were not the same

So where are you running to?

And where have you been, my love?

Portland is a long, long way from the way we were before

It’s hard to get close to you

But God knows I tried my luck

It’s been a long, long year and I feel like coming home

But I got no place to go

I’m looking back at the crash site

I can see where you left your mark

The nights seem longer now

When the sun’s not up it’s down

When it’s the creature and the habit

When you really gotta have it

Won’t be the death of me

If you become the enemy

So where are you running to?

And where have you been, my love?

Portland is a long, long way from the way we were before

It’s hard to get close to you

But God knows I tried my luck

It’s been a long, long year and I feel like coming home

But I got no place to go

I’m finally waking up

I’m finally waking up

I’m finally waking up

So where are you running to?

And where have you been, my love?

Portland is a long, long way from the way we were before

It’s hard to get close to you

And God knows I tried my luck

It’s been a long, long year and I feel like coming home

It’s been a long, long year and I feel like coming home

But I got no place to go

It’s been hard

American Hi-Fi We Can’t Be Friends

We were good, playin’ hard, rollin’ down the boulevard

Liquor drinks, between the bars

Making out, back of cars

Hey, you see that girl?

She’s the one that wrecked my world

Think you’re gonna take it far

She don’t wanna know who you are

Sunset strip, back in black, i’m right on track

Holdin’ court like obie wan, baby’s got it goin’ on

So what am I supposed to do

She left me I got nothin’ to lose

Exit axis bold as love got a new girl i’m thinkin’ of

One thing you gotta know

I thought I did everything just to keep you around

I hope that you’re happy now

I’ll keep my good intentions and you keep the car

This story’s coming to an end

Baby we can’t be friends

Disco trip, party ships, breakin’ down those ruby lips

Ex-girlfriend, comes in view

Sees me there with someone new

Hey, you see that girl?

She’s the one I wrecked her world

Baby’s in my cadillac, drivin’ off no lookin’ back

What makes you think I’d wanna call?

I forgot your number

What makes you think I care at all?

American Hi-Fi Don’t Wait For The Sun

i don’t need to know why

cause tommorow i’ll be fine

i should learn to be still

if i close my eye i’ll realize what you meant

[chorus:]

don’t wait for the sun

it could turn black any day

i lost my hat in the clouds

when will the haze go away

i never wanted this

now it’s all i’ve got

someone else is keeping time

i think i’m falling apart

if you were me would you do it like i do

[repeat chorus 2x]

so don’t wait for the sun

don’t wait for the sun

don’t wait for the sun

it could turn black any day

you’re all that i wanted

American Hi-Fi No Ordinary Life

Everyone stop, nobody knows

That’s the way that it goes

You tell me I’m wrong, you can be so cruel

You broke the rules

I still see you every night, brokenhearted eyes

I hear the drums from enemy lines, pounding out of time

They march alone down broken roads, no place to go

I still see you every night, by neon candle light

What’s it all about now?

This was no ordinary life

It can’t be undone now

Love only grows until it dies

Over the hill, a halo of lights, burning cities at night

We’ve come this far to be so close hangin’ by your rope

I still see you every night, twisted alibis

What’s it all about now?

This was no ordinary life

It can’t be undone now

Love only grows until it dies

What’s it all about now?

This was no ordinary life

It can’t be undone now

Love only grows until it dies

[x2]

American Hi-Fi Tiny Spark

I will begin again

Don’t know how and don’t know when

Something’s gotta give

So far I fall from grace

Taking all the breathing space

Won’t you let me in?

There’s beauty in the sound

Butterflies go underground

On a busy sea

Still floating in the dark

Waiting for a tiny spark

Lucky to be free

I wanna hear you say it’s all

I wanna hear you say

I wanna hear you say it’s all

I wanna hear you say

I wanna hear you say it’s all

I wanna hear you say

I wanna hear you say it’s all

I wanna hear you say, baby, it’s alright

American Hi-Fi Amnesia

It disappeared before your eyes

I know it eats you up inside to know I’m right

Worlds collide between the bars

I’m getting further from the truth of what we are

Tell me what your waiting for

I don’t wanna hear you say it’s not my problem

Can’t you figure out what I want?

Pull the trigger I’m a loaded gun, it’s almost over, I’m not over

Erase the memory

Sleeping with the enemy

You couldn’t disconnect the thrill

My conscience sang the blues while you moved in for the kill

Tell me what your waiting for

I don’t wanna hear you say it’s not my problem

Can’t you figure out what I want?

Pull the trigger I’m a loaded gun, it’s almost over, I’m not over

Time to turn around, oh

Time to turn around, oh

Tell me what your waiting for

I don’t wanna hear you say it’s not my problem

Can’t you figure out what I want?

Pull the trigger I’m a loaded gun, it’s almost over, I’m not over

It’s almost over, I’m not over

Erase the memory

Sleeping with the enemy

Erase the memory

Sleeping with the enemy

Erase the memory!

Sleeping with the enemy!

American Hi-Fi Allison

It’s a bitter wind that blows

All these souls for sale

Shadows fall, the river froze

Too many bridges burned

I guess you lost your way

Another bloody lesson learned

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

This place you call your home

Full of empty promises

Desires burned out long ago

You are an easy target

All alone with your memories

Bite back the curse of the broken hearted

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

Everywhere you go, it’ll follow you

Closer to the end

I know it will never change

Everywhere you go, it’ll follow you (just a face in the crowd)

It’ll follow you (when the lights go out)

It’ll follow you (it’s a long way home)

It’ll follow you (and nobody knows)

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

There’s somethin’ in the way this desire radiates

Let me make my own mistakes, one by one

I’ve been awake for days

Another line upon my face

Now I know I watched you break

Allison

There’s somethin’ in the way (Allison)

This desire radiates (Allison)

There’s somethin’ in the way (Allison)

This desire radiates
