Mayday Parade Amber Lynn

She said, “boy, you better say you’re sorry”

Don’t think forgiveness will come easy

‘Cause it’s all that I have to give

And boy, I get the strangest pleasure

Just sitting on these city roof-tops

And see the lights that go on for miles

And I’m dreaming all the time

My heart is racing, yeah

I’m dreaming all the time

Won’t you be mine?

Amber Lynn, I’ve got three days to keep away

I’ve been waiting on that white horse, oh for all these days

Amber Lynn, you’ve got me all wrong

Sweet love of mine, bring me closer to that Florida line

Amber Lynn won’t you be mine

And take me away, tonight

I am stuck between the lines

It just won’t come out right

Till I find mine, Till I find mine

Amber Lynn, I won’t forget

The simple things you know, you know me best

But I can’t seem to find a way in you

Now I’m dreaming all the time

My heart is racing, yeah

I’m dreaming all the time

Won’t you be mine?

Amber Lynn, I’ve got three days to keep away

I’ve been waiting on that white horse, oh for all these days

Amber Lynn, you’ve got me all wrong

Sweet love of mine, bring me closer to that Florida line

Amber Lynn won’t you be mine

And take me away

Amber Lynn, you’ve got me wishing for the stars tonight

And I’ve been messed up, but oh, you got here just in time

You saved my life, and I don’t ever think I’ll find the words to say

Amber Lynn, I’ve got three days to keep away

Amber Lynn, I’ve got three days to keep away

I’ve been waiting on that white horse, oh for all those days

Amber Lynn, you’ve got me all wrong

Sweet love of mine, bring me closer to that Florida line

Amber Lynn won’t you be mine

And take me away, tonight

Take me away, tonight

Take me away, tonight

Take me away, tonight

Take me away, tonight

Mayday Parade Three Cheers For Five Years

I swear that you don’t have to go

I thought we could wait for the fireworks

I thought we could wait for the snow

To wash over Georgia and kill the hurt

I thought I could live in your arms

And spend every moment I had with you

Stay up all night with the stars

Confess all the faith that I had in you (I had in you)

Too late, I’m sure and lonely

Another night, another dream wasted on you

Just be here now against me

You know the words, so sing along for me, baby

For heaven’s sake I know you’re sorry

But you won’t stop crying

This anniversary may never be the same

Inside I hope you know I’m dying

With my heart beside me

In shattered pieces that may never be replaced

And if I died right now you’d never be the same

I thought with a month of apart

Together would find us an opening

And moonlight would provide the spark

And that I would stumble across the key

Or break down the door to your heart

Forever could see us – not you and me

And you’d help me out of the dark

And I’d give my heart as an offering (an offering)

Too late, I’m sure and lonely

Another night, another dream wasted on you

Just be here now against me

You know the words, so sing along for me, baby

For heaven’s sake I know you’re sorry

But you won’t stop crying

This anniversary may never be the same

Inside I hope you know I’m dying

With my heart beside me

In shattered pieces that may never be replaced

And if I died right now you’d never be the same

And I will always remember you as you are right now to me

And I will always remember you now, remember you now

So sleep alone tonight with no one here just by your side

Sleep alone tonight

How does he feel, how does he kiss?

(Let’s sleep alone tonight)

How does he taste while he’s on your lips?

(With no one here just by your side)

How does he feel, how does he kiss?

(Sleep alone tonight)

[x3]

I can’t forget you

(Let’s sleep alone tonight)

I know you want me to want you, I want to

(With no one here just by your side)

But I can’t forget you

(Sleep alone tonight)

So when this is over don’t blow your composure, baby

I can’t forget you

(Let’s sleep alone tonight)

I know you want me to want you, I want to

(With no one here just by your side)

But I can’t forget you

(Sleep alone tonight)

So when this is over don’t blow your composure

I can’t forget you

I know you want me to want you, I want to

Mayday Parade If You Can’t Live Without Me, Why Aren’t You Dead Yet?

Baby, I sorely miss the vibrant gleam that’s in your eyes

I’ll write a song about it

And maybe if the melody’s just right

I hope tonight it will find you

It will remind you

But what’s holding me back is the thought of time we never had

My world’s hanging by three words that I can’t bear to say

When you hear this chorus

Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?

Do you hurt the way that I do?

After all this time you leave me broken

This song is every word I left unspoken

When you hear this, girl, I’m hoping that you think of us

That you think of us

Baby, I told myself that I’ll be fine but it’s a lie

I don’t want to talk about it

Memories, oh they cut like knives

Deep inside I’m falling

Baby, catch me if you can

What’s holding me back is the thought of time we never had

My world’s hanging by three words that I can’t bear to say

When you hear this chorus

Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?

Do you hurt the way that I do?

After all this time you leave me broken

This song is every word I left unspoken

When you hear this, girl, I’m hoping that you think of us

When you hear this chorus

Do you miss the way the world was spinning for us?

Do you hurt the way that I do?

After all this time you leave me broken

This song is every word I left unspoken

When you hear this, girl, I’m hoping that you think of us

That you think of us

Baby, I sorely miss the vibrant gleam that’s in your eyes

Mayday Parade 12 Through 15

(How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning

How you are cut down to the ground

You who weakened the nations

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds

I will be like the Most High

Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the pit)

Hey,

The walls keep coming down but I’ll stand brave

Love is just an empty word you say

I found loyalty and it was pain

And you hate,

God keeps coming down cause you’re afraid

Lucifer just might be your middle name

You’re the only angel that got away

And we’re all alone now

With nothing to stand in our way

Don’t swear that it’s over if love is our secret

I know you won’t keep it

We’re taking this easy

Cause darling, that’s what dreams are made of

This story is probably made up

So why don’t you go back to sleep?

Hey,

The walls keep tumbling down but I’ll stand brave

Maybe I’m the one who’s in your way

I’m the only reason love got away (love got away)

And we’re all alone now (yeah I’ll be alright)

With nothing to stand in our way (yeah I’ll be just fine)

Don’t swear that it’s over (don’t leave me guessing), if love is our secret

I know you won’t keep it

We’re taking this easy (we’re taking this easy)

Cause darling that’s what dreams are made of

This story is probably made up

So why don’t you go back to sleep?

(Just like you never could) why don’t you dream about me?

(Just like you always should) ’cause I’m the reason you’re alone now

Quit blaming everything on your hometown

Why would you say that?

Oh, oh, oh I think you’re better off when you’re on your own

You said you’d keep me close

Cause I’m the closest thing that you’ve ever known

You said the problem’s in your heart

But the problem’s who you are

So leave me alone now

I’d rather be lonely when I scream and shout and let it out

We’re taking this easy (we’re taking this easy)

Cause darling that’s what dreams are made of

This story is probably made up

So why don’t you go back to sleep?

(Just like you never could) why don’t you dream about me? (yeah I’ll be alright)

(Just like you always should) ’cause I’m the reason you’re alone now (yeah I’ll be just fine)

Quit blaming everything on your hometown (with you by my side)

(Don’t leave me guessing) why would you say that?

Mayday Parade Last Night For A Table Of Two

Right love the wrong intention, Some things will never change

I’ll keep my soul if you can promise the same

Someday I’ll fly away, countdown from ten for a brand new day

This year is over and I’m feeling like a rolling stone

One mistake at a time

Until you learn to keep it all condensed and buried deep inside

It hurts a little at first but it gets better in time

My heart is only my mind, oh, and now it’s gone

There’s got to be a better way to show what I’m feeling

All for a name I won’t ever say

I miss the glamour of your camera flash

You’re gonna need it when the lights go down

Let go and make believe we’re singing in the streets

You’re only happy when you’re making a scene

Well that’s just fine with me, I’m never one to disagree

The year is over and I’m feeling just as dizzy again

That’s okay, bide your time

‘Cause you’re never gonna see another morning without me

You’re just a little, oh, you’re just a little too shy

I think I will be alright now here I go

There’s got to be a better way to show what I’m feeling

All for a name I won’t ever say

I miss the glamour of your camera flash

You’re gonna need it when the lights go down

Oh, yeah!

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Ah ah ah ah ah ah

There’s got to be a better way to show what I’m feeling

All for a name I won’t ever say

I miss the glamour of your camera flash

I only need it when I’m coming down

I start to think I’m crazy every day after New Year’s

She said, “I need those Florida stars.”

I miss the glamour of your camera flash

You’re gonna need it when the lights go down

Mayday Parade Until You’re Big Enough

Troubled youth

Got the blues

Take a walk in those shoes

See how they fit for a while

I can bend

It’s all pretend

It’s just fake until you mean it

And one day you’ll mean it for real

Here’s to new beginnings

And starting over

When you hope all’s forgiven

It’s best not to ask for awhile

I believe some can see how to strike when it’s red hot

And crumble the castle walls

If I bite the hook would you tell me I’m wrong?

You speak like a man who believes he’s got no destiny

He’s content

A trouble so great that you shouldn’t have gone through

With a clarity I’ve never seen

I will build you up until you’re big enough to take me out

I told you we’d see it through

But you don’t believe

And that’s the part that kills me

(And that’s the part)

Promise me, promise me you will

If I bite the hook would you tell me I’m wrong?

You speak like a man who believes he’s got no destiny

He’s content

A trouble so great that you shouldn’t have gone through

With a clarity I’ve never seen

I will build you up until you’re big enough to pick me up

Mayday Parade Comedown

Love and hate get it wrong

She cut me right back down to size

Sleep the day let it fade

Who was there to take your place

No one knows never will

Mostly me but mostly you

What do you say do you do

When it all comes down

Cause I don’t want to come back down from this cloud

It’s taken me all this time to find out what I need yeah

I don’t want to come back down from this cloud

Taken me all this time to find out what I need

There’s no blame only shame

When you beg you just complain

The more I come the more I try

All police are paranoid

So am I so’s the future

So are you be a creature

What do you say do you do when it all comes down

‘Cause I don’t want to come back down from this cloud

It’s taken me all this time to find out what I need (yea, yea, yea)

‘Cause I don’t wanna come back down from this cloud

It’s taken me all this (all this) time

Shoot up

Shoot up

Shoot up

You’re high

Love and hate get it wrong

She cut me right down to size

Sleep the day, let it fade

Who was there to take your place

No one knows never will

Mostly me but mostly you

What do you say so you do when it all comes down

‘Cause I don’t want to come back down from this cloud

It’s taken me all this time to find out what I need (yea, yea, yea)

‘Cause I don’t wanna come back down from this cloud

It’s taken me all this (all this)time

Why did you

Why did you

Why did you

Why did you

Why did you

Why did you

Why did you

Why did you

Why did you come down

I don’t wanna come back down from this cloud

(this cloud, this cloud, this cloud this, this cloud, this cloud, this cloud, this cloud, this cloud, this cloud)

Mayday Parade The Memory

She is everywhere I go

Everyone I see

Winter’s gone and I still can’t sleep

Summer’s on the way

At least that’s what they say

But these clouds won’t leave

Walk away

Barely breathing

As I’m lying on the floor

Take my heart

As you’re leaving

I don’t need it anymore

This is the memory

This is the curse of having

Too much time to think about it

It’s killing me

This is the last time

This is my forgiveness

This is endless

Now spring has brought the rain

But I still see your face

And I can not escape the past

Creeping up inside

Reminding me that I

Can never bring you back

This is the memory

This is the curse of having

Too much time to think about it

It’s killing me

This is the last time

This is my forgiveness

This is endless

This is endless [3x]

Someone help me

‘Cause the memory

Convinced itself to tear me apart

And it’s gonna succeed before long

This is the memory

This is the curse of having

Too much time to think about it

It’s killing me

This is the last time

This is my forgiveness

This is endless

This is endless

Someone help me

‘Cause the memory

Convinced itself to tear me apart

And it’s gonna succeed before long

(This is endless)

She is everywhere I go

Everyone I see

But these clouds won’t leave

Mayday Parade Stay

I need some time just deliver the things that I need for now

Everything that I feel’s like a warm deep calm casting over me

And it’s taking me to somewhere new

If you believe that everything’s alright

You won’t be all alone tonight

And I’d be blessed by the light of your company,

Slowly lifting me to somewhere new

Oh can you tell, I haven’t slept very well

Since the last time that we spoke, you said

“Please understand if I see you again don’t even say hello.”

Please

What a night it is, when you live like this

And you’re coming up beneath the clouds,

Don’t let me down

All the love’s still there I just don’t know what to do with it now

You know, I still can’t believe we both did some things

I don’t even wanna think about

Just say you love me and I’ll say “I’m sorry,

I don’t want anybody else to feel this way”

No, no, no

Oh can you tell, I haven’t slept very well

Since the last time that we spoke, I said

“Please understand I’ve been drinking again, and all I do is hope”

Please… stay

Please stay

I’ll admit I was wrong about everything

Cause I’m high and I don’t wanna come down

All the fun that we had on your mothers couch,

I don’t even wanna think about

I’m not strong enough for the both of us

What was I supposed to do

You know I love you

Whoa-oh

Please just stay

Stay

Mayday Parade Just Say You’re Not Into It

In a show of hands, who has said these words before?

In a show of hearts on the floor, who has ever meant them more?

Well, I’ll swallow my pride if you’ll stay for the years,

And watch me spin circles as I disappear,

And hearts, they don’t lie, they just quiver in fear,

As you say,

Tonight we forget everything,

And we stay the night.

If I was wrong, then I’m sorry.

I’ll stop this fight,

For the night,

And this empty space left in the seat

To my right where you should be

Says a lot,

Don’t let it say goodbye.

Don’t let it say goodbye.

Let it say goodbye.

Forget everything,

And we stay the night.

If I was wrong, then I’m sorry.

I’ll stop this fight,

For the night.

And this empty space left in the seat

To my right where you should be

Says a lot.

And today I know that tomorrow

Will shine again golden and bring

Our hearts back home.

And today I know that tomorrow

Will shine again golden and bring

Our hearts back home.

And today I know that tomorrow (And today meant nothing, ’cause you’re gone)

Will shine again golden and bring (And I swear that this meant everything to me)

Our hearts back home. (But my heart’s not home)

And today I know that tomorrow (And today meant nothing, ’cause you’re gone)

Will shine again golden and bring (And I swear that this meant everything to me)

Our hearts back home. (But my heart’s not home)
