Matchbox Twenty Unwell

All day staring at the ceiling

Making friends with shadows on my wall

All night hearing voices telling me

That I should get some sleep

Because tomorrow might be good for something

Hold on

Feeling like I’m headed for a breakdown

And I don’t know why

[Chorus]

But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell

I know right now you can’t tell

But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see

A different side of me

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired

I know right now you don’t care

But soon enough you’re gonna think of me

And how I used to be…me

I’m talking to myself in public

Dodging glances on the train

And I know, I know they’ve all been talking about me

I can hear them whisper

And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me

Out of all the hours thinking

Somehow I’ve lost my mind

[Chorus]

But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell

I know right now you can’t tell

But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see

A different side of me

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired

I know right now you don’t care

But soon enough you’re gonna think of me

And how I used to be

I’ve been talking in my sleep

Pretty soon they’ll come to get me

Yeah, they’re taking me away

[Chorus]

But I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell

I know right now you can’t tell

But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see

A different side of me

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired

I know right now you don’t care

But soon enough you’re gonna think of me

And how I used to be

Yeah, how I used to be

How I used to be

Well, I’m just a little unwell

How I used to be

How I used to be

I’m just a little unwell

Matchbox Twenty Girl Like That

You think this life would make me bolder

But I’m running scared is all

You think I’d settle down cuz I’m older

But I roll with the changes is all

Well you got to think with a girl like that

Any love at all, is better than nothing

It’s better than nothing

I put my hands around your shoulder

You knew damn well there was nothing going on

She pulls you up

Says that she’s sorry now but it’s not enough

To pull you up

She’s sorry

I wake up quick just like I want to

Yeah but I stay out much too late

You think this life can get a bit unkind but she stays

Down till the worth is gone

And pulls you up, she pulls you up,

She pulls you up and over, over

Matchbox Twenty 3 AM

She said it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat

She’s always worried about things like that

She said it’s all gonna end and it might as well be my fault

And she only sleeps when it’s raining

And she screams and her voice is strained

And

[Chorus:]

She says baby

It’s 3 am I must be lonely

When she says baby

Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes

The rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

She’s got a little bit of something, God it’s better than nothing

And in her color portrait world she believes that she’s got it all

She swears the moon don’t hang quite as high as it used to

And she only sleeps when it’s raining

And she screams and her voice is strained…

And

[Chorus:]

She says baby

It’s 3 am I must be lonely

Well heaven she says baby

Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes

Says the rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

She believes that life is made up of all that you’re used to

And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days

She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway

But outside it’s stopped raining

[Chorus:]

She says baby

It’s 3 am I must be lonely

Well heaven she says baby

Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes

Says the rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

Well it’s 3 am I must be lonely

Well heaven she says baby

Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes

Matchbox Twenty Waiting On A Train

You were gonna be the one to tell me when you couldn’t take it

Take it

And I was gonna be the one to tell you that it ain’t so bad

But if nobody cares and why should we try hard

Don’t make you crazy, were just

Spinning all around in circles on our head

And you said

I’ve been waiting on a train that’ll never come

Hiding from the feeling of believing in someone

Come on, come on

I waited all this time

Every now and then I see a little bit of what I wasted

Wasted

And the sorry doesn’t always, always disappear

But if I pack up my bags, forget where I came from

Maybe just stop drinking I could

Turn it all around till the one outside don’t show

But I know

That I’ve been waiting on a train that’ll never come

Hiding from the feeling of believing in someone

Come one, come on

I waited all this time

I was good at walking away and never looking behind me

I know

I was good at being the one you would expect to lose

But if we give it our best

And life is a dance floor

And you don’t take nothing with you

Tell me what were saving up for all this time

If you don’t mind

I’ll be waiting on a train that’ll never come

Hiding from the feeling of believing in someone

Come on, come on

I waited all this time

I’ll be waiting on a train that’ll never come

Hiding from the feeling of believing in someone

Come one, come on

I waited all this time

Matchbox Twenty The Burn

I thought about

Leaving but I couldn’t even get outta bed

I’m hangin’ cause I couldn’t get a ride outta town

Now anyone who really wanted me to be down

Come ’round

Thought about

Singin’ but I couldn’t remember all of the words

Breakin’ but I couldn’t get the pieces apart

Laughin’ never knowing what the joke was about

Now I’m down

And I wonder how I never got the burn

And if I’m ever gonna learn

How lonely people make a life

One strain at a time

Forgot about

Everything and everyone I needed before

Tryin’ to get a handle on a reason to shine

Pickin’ up the pieces that are falling behind takes time

So I wonder how I never got the burn

And if I’m ever gonna learn

How lonely people make a life

all this time I wonder

And I wonder how I never got the burn

And if I’m ever gonna learn

How lonely people make a life

One strain at a time

And I wonder how I never got the burn

And if I’m ever gonna learn

How lonely people make their life

One strain at a time and still shine

Matchbox Twenty Could I Be You

Something is wrong with the sum of us

That I can’t seem to erase

How can I be the only one

Without a smile on my face

[Chorus]

Well now, you’re laughing out loud

At just the thought of being alive

And I was wondering

Could I just be you tonight

You show your pain like it really hurts

And I can’t even start to feel mine

Well, I’m standing in place

With my head first and I shake, I shake

I see your progress stretched out for miles and miles

[Chorus]

You’re laughing out loud

At just the thought of being alive, yeah

And I was wondering

Could I just be you tonight

This is the sound that I make

These are the words I chose

Somehow the right thing to say

Just won’t come out

Just won’t come out

[Chorus]

And you’re laughing out loud

At the thought of being alive

And I was wondering

Could I just be you tonight

And I was wondering

Could I just be you tonight

na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

And I was wondering

na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

And I was wondering

na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Yeah, and I was wondering

na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

I was wondering, yeah

Matchbox Twenty 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 Twenty You Won’t Be Mine

Take your head around the world

See what you get

From your mind

Write your soul down word for word

See who’s your friend

Who is kind

It’s almost like a disease

I know soon you will be

Over the lies, you’ll be strong

You’ll be rich in love and you will carry on

But no – oh no

No you won’t be mine

Take your straight line for a curve

Make it stretch, the same old line

Try to find if it was worth what you spent

Why you’re guilty for the way

You’re feeling now

It’s almost like being free

And I know soon you will be

Over the lies, you’ll be strong

You’ll be rich in love and you will carry on

But no – oh no

No you won’t be mine

Take yourself out to the curb

Sit and wait

A fool for life

It’s almost like a disease

I know soon you will be

Over the lies, you’ll be strong

You’ll be rich in love and you will carry on

But no – oh no

No you won’t be mine

Matchbox Twenty If You’re Gone

I think I’ve already lost you

I think you’re already gone

I think I’m finally scared now

And you think I’m weak, I think you’re wrong

I think you’re already leaving

Feels like your hand is on the door

I thought this place was an empire

And now I’m relaxed and I can’t be sure

But I think you’re so mean, I think we should try

I think I could need this in my life

And I think I’m scared, I think too much

I know it’s wrong, it’s a problem I’m dealing

If you’re gone maybe it’s time to come home

There’s an awful lot of breathing room but I can hardly move

And if you’re gone, baby, you need to come home

‘Cause there’s a little bit of something me in everything in you

I bet you’re hard to get over

I bet the room just won’t shine

I bet my hands I can stay here

I bet you need more than you mind

And I think you’re so mean, I think we should try

I think I could need this in my life

And I think I’m scared that I know too much

I can’t relate and that’s a problem I’m feeling

If you’re gone maybe it’s time to come home

There’s an awful lot of breathing room but I can hardly move

If you’re gone, baby, you need to come home

There’s a little bit of something me in everything in you

I think you’re so mean, I think we should try

I think I could need this in my life

And I think I’m scared, do I talk too much

I know it’s wrong, it’s a problem I’m dealing

If you’re gone maybe it’s time to come home

There’s an awful lot of breathing room but I can hardly move

And if you’re gone, yeah, baby, you need to come home

There’s a little bit of something me in everything in you
