Jukebox The Ghost Long Way Home

Seems like many years ago

It’s strange how you can never know who’s

Going to stay with you and who will leave

Do you remember me?

Do you remember me?

We walk through the park at night

Gazing up at all the satellites

(Lights) in the city made it hard to see

Do you remember me?

Do you remember me?

On that night, long ago

Walking down the road that we used to know

You said, “Let’s take it slow”

Let’s take the long way home

Let’s take the long way home

One day further down the road

With full grown children of your own

If I passed by you on a busy street,

Will you remember me?

Will you remember me?

On that night, long ago

Walking down the road that we used to know

You said, “Let’s take it slow”

Let’s take the long way home

Let’s take the long way home

One day down the road you’ll find

Everything you hid inside

Caught beneath the ocean,

Searching for a sign of life

One day down the road you’ll find

Something that you kept inside

Caught beneath the ocean

A part of us is still alive

One day down the road you’ll find

Everything you hid inside

On that night, long ago

Walking down the road that we used to know

You said, “Let’s take it slow”

Let’s take the long way home

Let’s take the long way home

Jukebox The Ghost Where Are All The Scientists Now?

It starts with a flash and a blast of

Plaster and glass as an earthquake

Came floodin’ through my living room

The sky was black with thinkin’

As it began to sink, I thought of you

And as the smoke came floodin’ in beneath the doorway

I saw Satan shakin’ hands, holdin’ a briefcase

Where inside there’s a plan that contains an X Command

For soldiers in the desert and toy soldiers marchin’ in the sand

It’s the end of the world, la da di da da da da da

I’m innocent, I’m innocent

Keep me out of this

Keep me out of this, keep me out of this

Keep me out of this

It’s the end of the world, la da di da da da da da

Laaa daa daa daa da daa da daa da daa

Laaa daa daa daa da daa da daa da daa

Laaa daa daa daa da daa da daa da daa

It’s the end of the world, la da di da da da da da

It’s the end of the world, la da di da da da da da

It’s the end of the world, la da di da da da da da

It’s the end of the world, la da di da da da da da

Laaa daa daa daa da daa da daa da daa

Laaa daa daa daa da daa da daa da daa

Laaa daa daa daa da daa da daa da daa

We survived!

They lit up the inside of the moon

We survived!

To remind us that help would be arriving soon

We survived!

Hangin’ tinsel in clear view

Erecting scaffolding and Christmas lights

Dedicated and renovated for you

We survived!

They lit up the inside of the moon

We survived!

Hangin’ tinsel in clear view

We survived!

Erecting scaffolding and Christmas lights

Dedicated and renovated for you

And taking a cue from the animals burrowing down

You dug a hole inside the architecture

A shelter just to be sure

Jukebox The Ghost The Popular Thing

Oh, here’s to new mornings, to new evenings

Pack your bags babe and we are leaving

Don’t you say no cause I know that you want to go, oh believe me

Out west babe, out west with rest

We’ll go fast and we’ll go faster yet

Don’t you worry, I’ve been there before

And so has everybody else, everybody’s doing it

So mark on your skin something that you like

Some phrase or symbol that might

Better say who you were at that time in your life

But not cause everybody else, everybody’s doing it

And if you wanna do the popular thing, oh, well then follow away

But if you want to find something unique, oh, you can’t look that way

Cause if you give it any more than a peek oh

Well you will have changed

Because everybody else, everybody’s doing it

So have kiss, babe, one little kiss

And you won’t ever never never never miss it

Cause when you get kissed you also get to kiss

And then one thing then leads to another

But don’t prematurely make her a mother

Make sure you love her until death do you part

But not because everybody else, everybody’s doing it.

And if you wanna do the popular thing, oh, well then follow away

But if you want to find something unique, oh, you can’t look that way

Cause if you give it any more than a peek oh

Well you will have changed

Because everybody else, everybody’s doing it.

Well look now, there’s a graveyard

You’ll be in one like it or not

You can’t pick when but you can pick your lot

And everybody else, everybody’s doing it

And if you wanna do the popular thing, oh, well then follow away

But if you want to find something unique, oh, you can’t look that way

Cause if you give it any more than a peek, oh

Well you will have changed

Because everybody else, everybody’s doing it

Jukebox The Ghost Hollywood

If all the world’s a stage

then you’re my favorite actress

If all of life’s a game

I sure could use the practice

I wouldn’t call this a love song

You want me pounding on the church door

singing from the streetlight

Oh it’s the kind of love that doesn’t exist anymore

You want Hollywood; this is real life

I wanna kiss you in the pouring rain

I say I loved you from the first time I saw you

It’s a surefire way to get your heart to break

That’s Hollywood; this is real life

You want Hollywood

If all the world’s a stage

then you’re my favorite actress

And if all of life’s a game

I sure could use the practice

Oh, I wouldn’t call this a love song

You want me pounding on the church door

singing from the streetlight

Oh it’s the kind of love that doesn’t exist anymore

You want Hollywood and this is real life

I wanna kiss you in the pouring rain

I say I loved you from the first time I saw you

It’s a surefire way to get your heart to break

that’s Hollywood, and this is real life

You want Hollywood, and this is real life

You want me pounding on the church door

singing from the streetlight

Oh it’s the kind of love that doesn’t exist anymore

You want Hollywood, and this is real life

I wanna kiss you in the pouring rain

I say I loved you from the first time I saw you

It’s a surefire way to get your heart to break

That’s Hollywood, and this is real life

You want Hollywood, and this is real life

Jukebox The Ghost Oh, Emily

Don’t you find it curious how we can disagree,

How two of us in one place can see two different things?

Don’t you find it strange how we never coincide?

Such a massive heartbreak, neither of us survived

Spring turns into summer turns to fall

You have changed but I don’t change at all

Fall turns into winter turns to spring

You have changed but I don’t change a thing

Oh Emily, you’re a funny girl and I didn’t mean to break your heart

But I’m lost and in love with everyone, and so now’s as good as any

as a place to start…

Grass that bursts through concrete and wolves out in the wild

Roots below the old streets break through after a while

Everything will crumble like rocks inside a stream

But will we ever find out what’s buried underneath?

Spring turns into summer turns to fall

You have changed but I don’t change at all

Fall turns into winter turns to spring

You have changed but I don’t change a thing

Oh Emily, you’re a funny girl and I didn’t mean to break your heart

But I’m lost and in love with everyone, and so now’s as good as any

as a place to start…

When I think I don’t miss it, I miss it….

Spring turns into summer turns to fall

You have changed but I don’t change at all

Jukebox The Ghost Undeniable You

The truth, the undeniable truth,

That a few days ago I didn’t think that I could have seen this through.

But then you, undeniable you,

You came to me like a dream and you changed me through and through.

Because I, I was broken good,

Never thought that I could love again.

I thought I’d leave this world a lonely man,

But then you, undeniable you,

Changed me through and through.

Oh, the truth,

The damn hard truth,

That I didn’t think I was capable of love, loving anyone, even you.

But then you, undeniable you,

You came to me like a dream and you changed me through and through.

Because I, I was broken good,

Never thought that I could love again.

I thought I’d leave this world a lonely man,

But then you, undeniable you,

Changed me through and through.

Way down underneath,

You are the currents that are pulling me onward.

I thought I’d leave this world a lonely man,

But then you, undeniable you,

But you, undeniable you,

But you, undeniable you,

You changed me through and through.

Jukebox The Ghost Everybody’s Lonely

Dragged into another heartbreak

Like a moth into a flame

Are we programmed

For broken romance?

Everything just sounds the same

Why’s every song about love

Or drinking too much

Yeah, maybe that’s because

Everybody’s lonely

On your radio

There’s another song that goes

“Babe, I’ll never let you go!”

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Digging through another playlist

Searching for a piece of art

A Jackson Pollack

Some piece of gossip

Why can’t we tell them all apart?

Why’s every song about love

Or drinking too much

Yeah, maybe that’s because

Everybody’s lonely

On your radio

There’s another song that goes

“Babe, I’ll never let you go!”

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s… everybody’s lonely

Why’s every song about love

Or drinking too much

Yeah, maybe that’s because

Everybody’s lonely

On your radio

There’s another song that goes

“Babe, I’ll never let you go!”

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Oh, everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody, lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Everybody’s lonely

Jukebox The Ghost Somebody

I want it

I need it

I want somebody

I want it

I need it

I want your eyes to turn

I need it

I want it

I want somebody

Baby

Now this is my turn

I don’t want any more doors

‘Cause I’m walkin’ on string

They only slam any more

Like we’re pulling our teeth

And I could just see your eyes

Just above your shoulder

And you were scannin’ the skies for me

I dreamt like you were some long-forgotten soldier

Like I was someone that you cared for

I want it

I need it

I want it

I need it

I want somebody

I want it

I need it

I want your eyes to turn

I need it

I want it

I want somebody

Baby

Now this is my turn

I don’t want any more heartbreak

I’m tired of the sound it makes

Like tryin’ to shut out the dark at night

You close your eyes but it won’t erase

And you were walkin’ beside

Some other person’s shadow

And it was more than I could take

I wouldn’t see what I couldn’t know

But there might be somebody after me

Oh, I want it

I need it

I want it

I need it

I want somebody

I want it

I need it

I want your eyes to turn

I need it

I want it

I want somebody

Baby

Now this is my turn

I need that new vacation

Where nothing that’s spoken is known

Let the winter be my station

I’ll let the cold teach me what to know

That there might be somebody after me

Oh

I want it

I need it

I want it

I want it

I need it

I want it

I need it

I want somebody

I want it

I need it

I want your eyes to turn

I need it

I want it

I want somebody

Baby

Now this is my turn

Jukebox The Ghost Lighting Myself On Fire

When you hold yourself to me

I think I’ll go down in flames

Wouldn’t ask you to join me

‘Cause that would be insane, it you could warm your hands

Yeah and stake out your place right here next to me

They will come from miles away

‘Cause it’s cold outside

And they need a place to rub on their hands and feet

What better time and place than here?

‘Cause you’ve become a fire in me

Ever since you turned eighteen girl

And then you said that love was

Just some sort of passing thing

You’ve become a fire in me

Ever since you turned eighteen,

And the cold ain’t so cold

When you hold yourself to me

They will come from miles away

In your honor

In their Sunday best of sleeveless shirts and winter coats

Oh they’ve been waiting for this for years

You can see it in their eyes

There’s a fire there

But it’s not that I’m on fire but it’s deep inside

They jump into the peppered sky

‘Cause you’ve become a fire in me

Ever since you turned eighteen girl

And then you said that love was

Just some sort of passing thing

You’ve become a fire in me

Ever since you turned eighteen

And the cold ain’t so cold

When you hold yourself to me

You, you can see it in their eyes

They’re afraid that they’ll catch fire

They’re filled, they’re filled with gasoline

Because it’s what my heart desires

All these little birds, are chirping in their homes

Twenty feet above us they’re where all footprints are heard

You’re wearing it down, you know when you walk like that

We’re not supposed to carry ourselves in the smalls of our backs

And you’re wearing it down, you know when you walk like that

We’re not supposed to carry ourselves in the smalls of our backs

Yeah you’re wearing it down, you know when you walk like that

We’re not supposed to carry ourselves in the smalls of our backs

Jukebox The Ghost Mistletoe

Oh, my mistletoe called me up on the phone

Tried her best to explain to the hearts that she had known

That though they’d misbehaved, she’d known it all along

No need to feel ashamed, we didn’t do nothing wrong

And she said, “I wanted you to know

I believe in the end out of love truth grows

And if I’m to be alone, then I’ll be alone

But don’t look at me like another lost soul”

Covers her hands with rings, twenty little semi-precious things

Each one for a heart she’d stole from her years out on the road

She talks with the knowledge that she paved her own rocky path

And that the past is past, ain’t nothing you can do about that

And she said, “I wanted you to know

I believe in the end out of love truth grows

And if I’m to be alone, then I’ll be alone

But don’t look at me like another lost soul

You don’t look at me like another lost soul”

And if all our time, if it turns out to be lies

I’ll go back home to the people that knew me

Before I was old and grown

Oh, my mistletoe called me up on the phone

Tried her best to explain to the hearts that she had known

That though they’d misbehaved, she’d known it all along

No need to feel ashamed, we didn’t do nothing wrong

And she said, “I wanted you to know

I believe in the end out of love truth grows

And if I’m to be alone, then I’ll be alone

But don’t look at me like another lost soul”

‘Cause I believe in the end out of love truth grows

And if I’m to be alone, then I’ll be alone

But don’t look at me like another lost soul

And if I’m to be alone, then I’ll be alone

But don’t look at me like another lost soul
