Four Year Strong So Hot And You Sweat On It

I’m not a kid you would call a tradition.

And I don’t give a fuck about the human condition.

Or regard warnings or lurking suspicions.

Of a life lead after dark.

I’m not one to think that half the suspense is.

Knowing what actions have consequences.

Or knowing what day in the week it really is.

Not that it ever mattered.

I’m sure I’ll see you around.

‘Cause I don’t get up until the sun is down.

So if you think that you can wait around.

I will be back to see you off in the morning.

I got this thing it’s called having a good time.

The only difference is that I don’t rock sunshine.

Or a rainy day get away that always makes me stay in the same place.

So let me be candid.

I know you can’t stand it.

When I push the subject and you push the rhythm of speech.

(When I push the subject and you push the rhythm of speech.)

I’m sure I’ll see you around.

‘Cause I don’t get up until the sun is down.

So if you think that you can wait around.

I will be back to see you off in the morning. [x2]

I’m stuck in a town that’s not enough for me.

Don’t tell me that it’s easy.

Some say that I’m bad news but I got some news for you.

We live a life that nobody knows.

We’re having fun and I’m sure that it really shows.

Obnoxiously and selfishly.

But we have our way of keeping ourselves busy. [x2]

I’m sure I’ll see you around.

‘Cause I don’t get up until the sun is down.

So if you think that you can wait around.

I will be back to see you off in the morning. [x2]

I will be back to see you off in the morning.

Four Year Strong Love Song

Head under water

And you tell me

To breathe easy for awhile

The breathing gets harder

Even I know that

Made room for me

It’s too soon to see

If I’m happy in your hands

I’m unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages

No easy way to say this

You mean well but you make this hard on me

I’m not gonna write you a love song

Cause you ask for it

Cause you need one

You see, I’m not gonna write you a long song

Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin’ this

If you’re on your way

I’m not gonna write you to stay

If all you have is leavin’

I’m gonna need a better reason

To write you a love song

Today

(hey hey hey, today!

hey hey hey, today!)

I learnt the hard way

That they all say

Things you wanna hear

My heavy heart sinks deep down under

You and Your twisted words

Your help just hurts

You are not what I thought you were

Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you

Made me think that I need this too

I’m trying to let you hear me as I am

I’m not gonna write you a love song

Cause you asked for it

Cause you need one

You see, I’m not gonna write you a love song

Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin’ this

If you’re on your way

I’m not gonna write you to stay

If all you have is leavin’

I’m gonna need a better reason

To write you a love song today

Promise me

You’ll leave the light on

To help me see

The daylight my guide, gone

Cause I believe

There’s a way

You can love me

Because I say

I won’t write you a love song

Cause you ask for it

Cause you need one

You see, I’m not gonna write you a love song

Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin’ this

Is that why you wanted a love song?

Cause you asked for it

Cause you need one

You see I’m not gonna write you a love song

Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin this

If you’re on your way

I’m not gonna write you to stay

If your heart is nowhere in it

I don’t want it for a minute

Babe, I walk the seven seas

When I believe that there’s a reason to write you a love song

Today.

Today..

Four Year Strong She Really Loved You

Wasting so much time

wishing and wondering what could I do to recapture my past

because all my memories

seem so much better than anything that I’m feeling today.

Now its fading away,

am I losing hold on the only piece of you that I have left?

Why is it easy to forget when nothing could take that place you left behind.

Every night I lie awake

worried that each day I am forgetting a little bit more.

I need to remember you that way, when I was not afraid to forget.

Wasted so much time, wishing and wondering.

And I wasted my time, wishing and wondering.

Every night I lie awake hoping my tears will dry,

will I ever shut my eyes?

Four Year Strong Wasting Time (Eternal Summer)

Wasting time

All along you’ve just been wasting mine

Ignoring all the signs that point our way out of our prime

Draw the line

All this time you were just drawing mine

Only problem is I see no end in sight of any kind

Well I can see you’re waiting

But I don’t care

To fill this whole place up with gasoline

And blow the top of this whole damn thing

Yeah cause I don’t care

Oooooooo

Yeah cause I don’t care

Oooooooo

The perfect crime

I just took what was yours and called it mine

Spent every night with fire in our eyes

Can you see it shine?

Lost in time I’d give this all up for a chance to find

My way back to that summer in 2003 when I felt alive

Well I can see you’re waiting But I don’t care

To fill this whole place up with gasoline

And blow the top of this whole damn thing

Yeah cause I don’t care

It was the first time I didn’t fall asleep until the sun came up

Cause we never ever had enough

It was the first time that we could rush the streets

Feeling no defeat

Cause we were ready to ignite the sky

It was the last time

That I had the time of my life

Wasting time

All along you were just wasting mine

Ignoring all the signs that point their way out of our prime

Wasting time

All along you were just wasting mine

Ignoring all the signs that point their way out of our prime

Wasting time

All along you were just wasting mine

Ignoring all the signs that point their way out of our prime

Cause I don’t care!!

Four Year Strong Gotta Get Out

I just wanna save myself

I don’t care about anyone else.

Bet you’re gonna be just fine,

And I just might

Sweat it out, sweat it out.

‘Cuz I’m not going anywhere

I’ve gotta get outta here

I’ve gotta get outta here

I’ve gotta get out.

I’m singled out

I couldn’t be anymore related

When I’m sitting around

Conjuring up a stronger offense.

I’m watching out

Before myself, ‘cuz this is all I have,

I should be runnin’ around,

Sweating out hits

Ever since this is my last chance

To sweat for you (say it isn’t true)

What’s about time for me

And I gotta kick it

Kick it up, a little bit

A little bit.

‘Cuz I’m not going anywhere

I’ve gotta get outta here

I’ve gotta get outta here

I’ve gotta get out. [x2]

I’m breakin’ out

This couldn’t be anymore related

So I’m runnin’ around

Covering up some blanks to tell you

My luck’s run out

Tonight I haven’t tried

I should be runnin’ around,

Sweating out hits

Ever since this is my last chance

To sweat for you (say it isn’t true)

What’s about time for me

And I gotta kick it

Kick it up, a little bit

A little bit.

‘Cuz I’m not going anywhere

I’ve gotta get outta here

I’ve gotta get outta here

I’ve gotta get out. [x2]

I will sweat for you

If you really want me to

I will sweat for you

If you really want me to

‘Cuz I’m not going anywhere

But I’ve gotta get outta here

I’ve gotta get outta here

I gotta get out (of here)

I gotta get out (of here)

I gotta get out

I gotta get out (I’ve gotta get outta here)

(I will sweat for you)

(I’ve gotta get outta here)

I’ve gotta get out

Four Year Strong Baseball Bats And Boogeymen

Is this the end of it?

Where smiles and tortured faces collide

With the smell of your hair

In the air subsides into fragrances of

Occupied spaces

And passion took our insides.

On highland, I hear the steps of underdogs

So let me ask are you tired of hearing me

Rant and rave of another day

Where I could have been the hero

But instead I ran away.

Well don’t forget what you are running from.

Take to the streets and ride

Around our city that never sleeps unless we do

To be in this big town

With these small ideas

Wanna go wreck someones day?

We’ll keep calling

Cuz they’re lying

And wont stop until we figure out

Where our meeting must take place.

Did that I was right?

(cuz) it happens every time.

Don’t forget what you are running from.

Enough’s enough of the he said she said

I’m growing tired of you

And I know you feel it too.

I’m sick and tired of the do do do it now

I just hope that you that you

Knew through and through it how

You pushed me away

And I knew someday you’d pay.

And you will.

Does it hurt you to bare

That everything means everything to her.

Give it a go, give it a go and let go.

Don’t let your positives show.

Give it a go, give it a go and let go.

Don’t let your insides show

And baby, if I choke things down for a second

I’m a mess, such a wreck, don’t forget about it

I’d drag myself through the dirt just to feel a little closer to the ground

Because I’ve always had my head up in the clouds

Take a second and look down

I’ve got my name on a string

Tangled up in lights, despite the fact that they aren’t working

I lay my life on the line to find a way to be unforgettable

Don’t fix it if it hasn’t broken yet

Don’t regret it if it hasn’t happened yet

So let’s go

A tiny spark to set it off

Ignite the dark, illuminate the unknown

But since your head’s in the clouds

The best advice I’ve found is don’t look down

Face the facts

You’re a betting man and the deck is stacked

Against you all the time

It seems your life is just a failure by design

Do you feel like you’re better without it?

Cause it looks like you’re nothing without it

Don’t fix it if it hasn’t broken yet

Don’t regret it if it hasn’t happened yet

So let’s go

A tiny spark to set it off

I’ll explode

Ignite the dark, illuminate the unknown

But since your head’s in the clouds

The best advice I’ve found is don’t look down

Don’t look down

A tiny spark to set it off

Ignite the dark and live it up

Don’t fix it if it hasn’t broken yet

Don’t regret it if it hasn’t happened yet

So let’s go

A tiny spark to set it off

I’ll explode

Ignite the dark, illuminate the unknown

But since your head’s in the clouds

The best advice I’ve found is don’t look down

Well it’s the best advice I’ve found

Don’t look down

until another pushed and was shoved away

so where does your heart beat tonight anyway?

I’ve been waiting for too long

to see another night wasted

don’t forget to call me don’t forget to call me handsome

and then you’ll KNOW YOU’RE DONE

but will you realize

that this soon dies

Four Year Strong Let Me Down Again

They’re rattling inside my brain, getting tangles up in every vein

They’re hanging crooked like a picture in a wrong sized frame

But if you don’t want to talk about it, I don’t want to talk about it

There’s way too many wrongs to right

To think that either one of us would land in the black or the white

It’s hard to keep in bottled up inside

But if you don’t want to talk about it, I don’t want to talk about it

Sinking like a stone down down to the bottom of the river

What I wouldn’t give to start over again

But since I’m sinking like a stone and there’s nothing left to live for

I guess I’ll try to live a little bit more

I’ve still got a lot left to say to you

Cuz I’ve still got a lot left to say to you

Don’t tell me that you’ve lost your touch

So just go ahead and let me down again

Just for once could you see it through

Do what you’ve got to do

And let me down again

We’ve got so little time to waste

Why don’t we just sit back and relax in a place where we both know they’ll never find us?

We’ll just sit here in silence so we don’t have to talk about it

Sinking like a stone down down to the bottom of the river

What I wouldn’t give to start over again

But since I’m sinking like a stone and there’s nothing left to live for

I guess I’ll try to live a little bit more

I’ve still got a lot left to say to you

Cuz I’ve still got a lot left to say to you

Don’t tell me that you’ve lost your touch

So just go ahead and let me down again

Just for once could you see it through

Do what you’ve got to do

And let me down again

Just for once

Could you see it through

Do what you’ve

Do what you’ve got to do

Just for once (sinking like a stone down down to the bottom of the river)

Could you see it through (what I wouldn’t give to start over again)

Do what you’ve (but since I’m sinking like a stone and there’s nothing left to live for)

Do what you’ve got to do (I guess I’ll try to live a little bit more)

[x2]

I’ve still got a lot left to say to you

Cuz I’ve still got a lot left to say to you

Don’t tell me that you’ve lost your touch

So just go ahead and let me down again

Just for once could you see it through

Do what you’ve got to do

And let me down again
