Matchbox Twenty Overjoyed

Feeling my hands start shaking

Hearing your voice I’m overjoyed

I’m sorry but I have no choice

You’re only getting better

Maybe you have your reasons

Maybe you’re scared you’ll be let down

Are you crying when there’s no one around

Then maybe

Maybe if you hold me, baby

Let me come over

I will tell you secrets nobody knows

I cannot overstate it

I will be overjoyed

That smile on your face, like summer

The way that your hand keeps touching mine

Let me be the one to make it right

And maybe

Maybe let me hold you, baby

Let me come over

I will tell you secrets nobody knows

I cannot overstate it

I will be overjoyed

And if you want we’ll share this life

Any time you need a friend

I’m gonna be by your side

When nobody understands you

Well, I do

So maybe let me hold you, baby

Let me come over

I will tell you secrets God only knows

I cannot overstate it

I will be overjoyed

Baby

Let me come over

I will tell you secrets nobody knows

I cannot overstate it

I will be overjoyed

Well, I will be overjoyed

Well, I will be overjoyed

Matchbox Twenty Shame

What we learned here is love tastes bitter when it’s gone

Past yourself forget the light, things look dirty when it’s on

Funny how it comes to pass, that all the good slips away

And there’s no one around you can remember being good to

You

[chorus 1]

Shame, shouldn’t try you, couldn’t step by you

And open up more

Shame, shame, shame

What we lost here is something better left alone

Second steps have been forgotten, will you tell me how

They go

Set yourself, situate, like a fool try again

There’s no one around you can remember being good, for you

So

[chorus 2]

Shame, shouldn’t try you, couldn’t step by you

And open up more

Shame, shame, shame

Shame, shouldn’t try you, couldn’t step by you

And open up more

Shame, shame, shame

We never thought we’d get so troubled

We could never think that much

It should never get this bad

So let the wind blow ya, across a big floor

But there’s no one around who can tell us what we’re here

For

Funny in a certain light, how we all look the same

And there’s no one in life you can remember ever stood

For you, so

Matchbox Twenty Rest Stop

Just three miles from the rest stop

And she slams on the breaks

She said I tried to be but I’m not

And could you please collect your things

I don’t wanna be cold

I don’t wanna be cruel

But I gotta find more

Than what’s happening with you

If you’d – open up the door

She said – while you were sleeping

I was listening to the radio

And wondering what you’re dreaming when

It came to mind that I didn’t care

So I thought – hell if it’s over

I had better end it quick

Or I could lose my nerve

Are you listening – can you hear me

Have you forgotten

Just three miles from the rest stop

And my mouth’s too dry to rage

The light was shining from the radio

I could barely see her face

But she knew all the words that I never had said

She knew the crumpled-up promise of this

Broken down man – and as I opened up the door

She said – while you were sleeping

I was listening to the radio

And wondering what you’re dreaming when

It came to mind that I didn’t care

So I thought – hell if it’s over

I had better end it quick

Or I could lose my nerve

Are you listening – can you hear me

Have you forgotten

She said – while you were sleeping

I was listening to the radio

And wondering what you’re dreaming when

It came to mind that I didn’t care

So I thought – hell if it’s over

I had better end it quick

Or I could lose my nerve

Are you listening – can you hear me

While you were sleeping

I was listening to the radio

And wondering what you’re dreaming when

It came to mind that I didn’t care

So I thought – hell if it’s over

I had better end it quick

Or I could lose all my nerve

Are you listening – can you hear me

Matchbox Twenty 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 Twenty All I Need

Everywhere someone’s getting over

Everybody cries

And sometimes you can still lose even if you really try

Talking about the dream

Like the dream is over

Talk like that

Won’t get you nowhere

Everybody’s trusting in the heart

Like the heart don’t lie

[Chorus]

And that’s all that I need, yeah

Someone else to cling to, yeah

Someone I can lean on

Until I don’t need to

Just stay all through the night

In the morning let me down

Cause that’s all that I need right now

Everywhere someone’s getting over

Everybodys life is someone

People still use other people with a crooked smile

And all around the world there’s a sinking feeling

Out there right now someone’s feeling

Down on themselves and don’t know why

Every night

[Chorus]

And that’s all that I need, yeah

Someone else to cling to, yeah

Someone I can lean on

Until I don’t need to

Just stay all through the night, yeah

In the morning let me down

Cause that’s all that I need right now

And life ain’t no beauty show

We don’t know where tomorrow ends

And when we’re sad

It’s kind of a drag

Just stay all through the night

In the morning let me down

Yeah, cause that’s all that I need

Yeah, that’s all that I need

Yeah, that’s all that I need

That’s all that I need right now

Right now

Matchbox Twenty Argue

She don’t, but she will

He says anything to keep her by him

She takes, what she gets, and she never did flinch

over, and over, well anyone

With any mind would think that’s all she gets

[chorus]

If you want you can get to know me well

We get along so we shouldn’t argue

And I don’t know, said I don’t know

All these feelings cloud up my reasoning

Cloud up my reasoning

I know, but I still

Believe in ignorance as my best defense

So go on, wreck me

Funny how I carry on, and not be taken over

Will not roll over on anyone,

cuz anyone would stand up on my side

[chorus]

You know it’s funny how sometimes,

It don’t work out like you want to

No you never get nothing at all

Then she tells you that it’s nothing at all

Then she tells you that it’s over, boy don’t you hate it

When it’s over

I guess something just got lost, and it deeply saddens me

So over, and over anyone, who’s anyone

[chorus]

Matchbox Twenty Bed Of Lies

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there’ll be no rest for these tired eyes

I’m marking it down to learning

I am

Don’t think that I can take another empty moment

Don’t think that I can fake another hollow smile

It’s not enough just to be lonely

Don’t think that I could take another talk about it

Just like me you got needs

And they’re only a whisper away

And we softly surrender

To these lives that we’ve tendered away

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there’ll be no rest for these tired eyes

I’m marking it down to learning

I am

Don’t wanna be the one who turns the whole thing over

Don’t wanna be somewhere where I just don’t belong

Where it’s not enough just be sorry

Don’t you know I feel the darkness closing in

Tried to be more than me

And I gave till it all went away

And we’ve only surrendered

To the worst part of these winters we’ve made

No I would not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there’ll be no rest for these tired eyes

I’m marking it down to learning

I am

I am all that I’ll ever be

When you – lay your hands

Over me but don’t go weak on me now

I know that it’s weak

But God help me I need this

I will not sleep in this bed of lies

So toss me out and turn in

And there’ll be no rest for these tired eyes

I’m marking it down to learning

I’m marking it down to learning

‘Cause I am

Matchbox Twenty 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

[Chorus]

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 leave until they leave you

And then the things that you miss, you say

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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 dont receive you

Yeah, come on home

Yeah, come on home

Baby, baby, baby, baby
