Matchbox 20 Our Song

I don’t know why sometimes we seem so apart

Sewn together with a broken heart

I try to see you but it’s getting dark

Words keep flowing out I wonder what they mean

You’re like a little piece of kerosene

But girl you’ve always been a friend to me

And I’ve been too proud sometimes

Chasing fault lines

Oh no

I’m gonna be there always

After the pain has gone away

The feelings are so strong

This can be our song

This can be our song

Oh no

I’ll never make you cry again

I’m gonna set things right again

And I won’t let ’em go wrong

This can be our song

This can be our song

I don’t know if someone else could handle me

I don’t know what I’m supposed to be

You’re the only one who really sees

You get me

I feel something growing deep inside of me

What I say and what I mean

Always seem to disagree

So help me through this hard time

Change these fault lines

Oh no

I’m gonna be there always

After the pain has gone away

The feelings are so strong

This can be our song

This can be our song

Oh no

I’ll never make you cry again

I’m gonna set things right again

And I won’t let ’em go wrong

This can be our song

This can be our song

Oh-oh

Oh-oh

Oh no

I’m gonna be there always

After the pain has gone away

The feelings are so strong

This can be our song

This can be our song

Oh no

I’ll never make you cry again

I’m gonna set things right again

And I won’t let ’em go wrong

This can be our song

This can be our song

(oh oh)

This can be our song

This can be our song

(oh oh)

This can be our song

This can be our song

Oh no

Oh no

This can be our song

This can be our song

Matchbox 20 How Long

So many times with you and I,

Thought it was right but I was wrong,

It’s true.

But I wouldn’t feel the way I do,

Without a sense of something real,

For you.

It’s all about a good thing,

So I don’t mind holding on.

But how long

Are you gonna make me wait?

And how long

Are you gonna hesitate?

‘Cause I love the way we’re carrying on,

But baby how long?

You know the way they always say,

“Don’t make it never it’s better late,”

Well that’s true.

But tell me why my cautious angel,

Must you put it in my face,

Like you do?

It’s all about a good thing,

So I don’t mind holding on.

But how long

Are you gonna make me wait?

And how long

Are you gonna hesitate?

‘Cause I love the way we’re carrying on.

But baby I don’t ever wanna make you feel to rushed,

Make you feel like love wouldn’t be enough,

But that’s just another “Don’t mean much”,

Like a high school crush, make you wanna run,

Can’t you see the way I need you crazy,

And I want you in my arms every night,

Of my life.

So tell me,

How long

Are you gonna make me wait?

And how long

Are you gonna hesitate?

‘Cause I love the way we’re carrying on,

But baby how long?

How long,

How long?

How long,

How long,

How long?

Tell me how long?

Matchbox 20 I Believe In Everything

[Verse 1:]

I want to make you sing, darlin’

I want to make you run

I want to sew on wings, darlin’

And fly right over the sun

[Verse 2:]

There’s a bustle in the wind, darlin’

There’s a bustle in the room

I want to tell you what I see, darlin’

When I look over to you

But sometimes life don’t work that way

All the love, and all the waiting

I don’t want to wait no more

I don’t want to wait no more

No more

Some people want to bring the change, darlin’

Some people want to be the one

I only want to see your face smilin’

When all our livin’ is done

Well everyone around us feel their heart is stomping

Crowding up the air with words they cannot know

They hate this world they’ll hate this song, ya

So I won’t ever belong

No I won’t ever belong

Still I believe in everything

But sometimes life don’t work that way

All the love, and all the waiting

Gonna make you smile and hold your heart

We’ll take this life and make it dark

Because it’s hard enough to be the way you are

All the love, and all the waiting

But sometimes life don’t work that way

All the love, and all the waiting

I don’t want to wait no more

I don’t want to wait no more

Matchbox 20 The Difference

Slow dancing on the boulevard

In the quiet moments while the city’s still dark

Sleepwalking through the summer rain and the tired spaces

You could hear her name when she was warm and tender

And you held her arms around you

There was nothing but her love and affection

She was crazy for you

Now she’s part of something that you lost

[Chorus]

And for all you know

This could be

The difference between what you need

And what you wanna be

Yeah, what you wanna be

Night swimming in her diamond dress

Making small circles move across the surface

Stand watching from the steady shore

Feeling wide open and waiting for

Something warm and tender

Now she’s moving further from you

There was nothing that could make it easy on you

Every step you take reminds you that she’s walking wrong

[Chorus]

Yeah, for all you know

This could be

The difference between what you need

And what you want

Every word you never said

Echoes down your empty hallway

And everything that was your world

Just came down

Day breaking on the boulevard

Feel the sun warming up your second hand heart

Light swimming right across your face

And you think maybe someday, yeah

Maybe someday

[Chorus]

For all you know

Yeah, this could be

The difference between what you need

And what you want

Yeah, for all you know

For all you know

Yeah, for all that you know

This is what you wanna be

Girl, what you wanna be

Matchbox 20 Bright Lights

She got out of town on the railway, New York bound

Took all except my name

Another alien on Broadway

Well, some things in this world you just can’t change

Some things you can’t see until it gets too late

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone

Who will save me from all I’m up against out in this world

And maybe, maybe, maybe

You’ll find something that’s enough to keep you

But if the bright lights don’t receive you

You should turn yourself around and come on home

I got a hole in me now

I got a scar I can talk about

She keeps a picture of me in her apartment in the city

But some things in this world

Man, they don’t make sense

Some things you don’t need until they leave you

They’re the things that you miss, you say

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone

Who will save me from all I’m up against out in this world

And maybe, maybe, maybe

You’ll find something that’s enough to keep you

But if the bright lights don’t receive you

You should turn yourself around and come on home

Let that city take you in (come on home)

Let that city spit you out (come on home)

Let that city take you down, yeah

For God sakes turn around

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone

Who will save me from all I’m up against out in this world

Yeah well, maybe, maybe, maybe

You’ll find something that’s enough to keep you

But if the bright lights don’t receive you

Well, turn yourself around and come on home

Yeah, come on home

Baby, baby, baby, baby

Come on home

Yeah, come on home

Yeah, come on home

Yeah, come on home

Baby, baby, baby, baby

Come on home

Matchbox 20 These Hard Times

Morning falls like rain into the city life

There goes another night

Losing my breath in waves

Knowing that ever crash is bleading the hourglass

And taking the strife from all our lives

Everyone keeps talking

They promise you everything

But they don’t mean anything

We may loose our focus

There’s just too many words

We’re never meant to learn

And we don’t feel so alive

So goodbye, these days are gone

And we can’t keep holding on

When all we need is some relief

Through these hard times

Through these hard times

Move your hands in circles

Keeping me hypnotized

The power behind your eyes

Move around your bedroom cursing the naked sky

You should be here tonight

But you stay alone and cry

Say goodbye, these days are gone

And we can’t keep holding on

When all we need is some relief

Through these hard times

(whoa) There’s something missing

(Oh whoa) You’ll never feel it but you

(Oh whoa) You’re gonna feel it when it’s gone

When it’s gone

Say goodbye, these days are gone

And we can’t keep holding on

When all we need is some relief

Through these hard times

(hey) these Hard times

(oh no now) Hard times

Hard times

Say goodbye, these days are gone

Say goodbye, these days are gone

These days are gone

Matchbox 20 Last Beautiful Girl

This will all fall down like everything else that was

This too shall pass and all of the words we said

We can’t take back

Now every fool in town would’ve left by now

I can’t replace all of the wasted days

The memory of your face, I can’t help thinkin’

Maybe if we ever coulda kept it all together, where would we be

A thousand lost forevers

And the promises you never were giving me

Here’s what I’m thinking

It won’t be the first heart that you break

It won’t be the last, beautiful girl

The one that you wrecked won’t take you back

If you were the last beautiful girl in the world

So tell me one more time

How you’re sorry about the way this all went down

You needed to find your space, you needed to still be friends

You needed me to

Call you if I ever couldn’t keep it all together you’d comfort me

You tell me but forever

And the promises I never should have believed in

Here’s what I’m thinking

It won’t be the first heart that you break

It won’t be the last beautiful girl

The one that you wrecked won’t take you back

If you were the last beautiful girl in the world

Last beautiful girl in the world

It’s over now, I’ve gone without ‘cuz you’re everyone else’s girl

It seems to me, you’ll always be everyone else’s girl

Everyone else’s girl

This will all fall down like everything in the world

This too must end and all of the words we said

We can’t take ’em back

And it won’t be the first heart that you break

It won’t be the last, beautiful girl

The one that you wrecked won’t take you back

If you were the last beautiful girl

It won’t be the first heart that you break

It won’t be the last, beautiful girl

The one that you wrecked won’t take you back

If you were the last beautiful girl in the world

The last beautiful girl in the world

You are the last beautiful girl in the world

Beautiful girl

Matchbox 20 Kody

Kody sat down on the avenue

He tapped his feet, to the humming of the highway

He watched the light shine down on the broken glass and thought

I don’t got no reasons, yet

There it is and there it was

It was clear to all of us

We kept this hat of broken dreams

And we pulled them out, when we needed them around

[Chorus:]

So please hand me the bottle, I think I’m lonely now

And please give me direction, I think the hurt sets in

And I don’t feel nothing

There’s a squeak hinge down on the back gate

It lets us know if he comes around

I don’t sleep that good anyway

If you’ve never heard the silence, it’s a God awful sound

[Chorus:]

So please hand me the bottle, I think I’m lonely now

And please give me direction, I think I just caved in

And I don’t feel nothing

I don’t feel nothing, no I don’t feel nothing

There’s nothing to feel good about here

Don’t much get down to the avenue

I could drive, but it takes so much to get there

Don’t get off on all the broken glass, the cadillac scene,

Well

I’ve seen a lot of good things die and I’m

In an over emotional way

[Chorus:]

So please hand me the bottle, I think I’m lonely now

And please give me direction, I think the hurt sets in

And I don’t feel nothing

Matchbox 20 Sleeping At The Wheel

I, I could be anything

But for the fault that I’ve acquired on my way

We, We were the end of it

But now we see the sun shining in our face

We see the sun shining in our face

So come on, come on we can be saved

The lives we live, the wars we wage

When everyone just tells us how to feel

We’re sleeping at the wheel

And I, I would give anything

But for the grace of God I’m here and still aware

We know the end is overrated

We’ve become the walls we raise

We don’t believe enough but we still care

Standing on the edge without a prayer

So come on, come on it’s all we got

Our hands are full, our lives are not

The loose affiliation with the real

We’re sleeping at the wheel

All of the time we’ve lost

All of the love we gave

And now these hands are tied

I can’t help thinking

That I was in a daze, I was losing my place

I was screaming out at everything

Waiting for the walls to come down

Before my moments starts to fade

But everything that’s perfect falls away

So come on, come on we can be saved

The lives we live, the wars we wage

When everyone just tells us how to feel

We’re sleeping at the wheel

We’re sleeping at the wheel

Just sleeping at the wheel

Matchbox 20 Damn

This old world well

Don’t it make you wanna think damn

This cold girl well

Don’t she wanna make you scream, damn

What’s the matter girl

Don’t you think I’m good enough

This old heart’s had a whole lot a breakin’ down

She’s got all these reasons in her head

[chorus 1]

All that time she knew if I lied

You can bet she will

She’s taking her time ’til I thought I would die

And I can’t sit still

Things got turned ’round

Don’t know where I started from, damn

Can’t eat, can’t sleep

Could have been a bigger man, damn

What’s the matter girl don’t you think I’m bright enough

This old man had a hard time getting here

You can leave your number at the door

[chorus 1]

And there’s nothing at all

Yeah there’s nothing at all

Well there’s nothing at all

To make her change her mind

This old house been quiet since

You went away, damn

Mixed up fixed out

Don’t forget who got you here, damn

What’s the matter world

Don’t you see I opened up

This whole part been played by another man

I pulled out the reason card instead

[chorus 1]

[chorus 2]

Says she can find

The things that make up a life

I bet she will

She stays behind, I could stay here all night

I could stay here until

Until there’s nothing at all

Yeah there’s nothing at all

Well there’s nothing at all

To make her change her mind
