My Favorite Highway Simple Life

One two, one two three ohh

Na na na na na na na na na

Somewhere inside me

Something is hiding

Something I never knew

If I’m open and honest

Keeping my promise

Someday I’ll see this through

I can’t hear anything

Listening, I’m listening

I need the space to move

Breaking through to something new

I need the chance to feel something real, something real

Everything I know is spinning out of control

So, so, so tell me where do we go

There is a burning that’s inside of my soul, and it shows

We all want something more than just a simple life

Hey, hey, so give me something to say

I had the words but then I through them away, and you know

We all want something more than just a simple life

If I walk in a straight line

Wait for the right time

How can I know for sure

They’ll tell you how to get by

Just put your life on standby

And in the end you hope that you were right

I can’t hear anything

Listening, I’m listening

I need the space to move

Breaking through to something new

I need the chance to feel something real, something real

Everything I know is spinning out of control

So, so, so tell me where do we go

There is a burning that’s inside of my soul, and it shows

We all want something more than just a simple life

Hey, hey, so give me something to say

I had the words but then I through them away, and you know

We all want something more than just a simple life

So believe what you want

No, you’re not who you thought

The more you fake the harder you fall

So, so, so tell me where do we go

There is a burning that’s inside of my soul, and it shows

We all want something more than just a simple life

Hey, hey, so give me something to say

I wanted nothing and I gave it all, gave it all away

We all want something more than just a simple life

My Favorite Highway The Worst Way To Retaliate

Don’t hesitate to break my back

You’re a heart attack, you are everything I lack

If you feel the need to take my pride

Cut me down to size, cough up the truth and run and hide

You refuse to let me stay

I was not meant to bend this way

I could you I love you, but it won’t be the same

The way that it ended means there’s no one to blame

You weren’t made to make me sing

Wide awake, you keep me up in bed

I got a hundred different things runnin’ through my head

It’s hard to fall asleep when all your dreams are dead

And I know you think about me too

Or I’m assuming in the back of your mind if you do

Subconsciously your hoping I come back to you

I hate to be the one to pick a fight

But you see, I know when I’m wrong and I know when I’m right

It’s a challenge to be strong when you’re so weary and trite

Don’t hesitate to say you need some space

Well it seems that you have found somebody else to replace

The melancholly feeling that I have to embrace

My Favorite Highway Unaware

Light breaks through a crack in the shades

Starting off another day, (it all feels the same)

She takes in the morning air

A faint smile while she does her hair, (she’s unaware)

She remarks, but she never complains

Big dreams that are never in vain, (never change)

I picture her in her car

Singing along to her favorite rock star, (she’s a star)

Don’t let it pull you down

Don’t let it burn you out

You’re so much stronger than you know

Down here time moves so slow

Life could pass you by and you wouldn’t know, (who wouldn’t know)

Things change but the rarely do

Count the days as the barely move, (you did what you had to)

If you feel the sudden urge to escape

A fast car and your favorite mix tape, (run away)

If you feel that you’re needing to cry

Run to these arms, they won’t ask you why, (dry your eyes)

So please don’t go away

Say you’ll stay with me

My Favorite Highway They Tried To Kill Chivalry, But We Brought It Back

Let me know if you want to be alone

Can’t find your heart, whoa

Improve what you aren’t

And fake what you can, whoa

Take this, baby, embrace this

I need you like I hate this

Why can’t you face this?

Who said that we were over?

You call it closure

But you don’t even know her

Pulling me closer

All my friends are sinking slowly

Take me, bend me, no, break me

I need you like your love

I need your love, I need your love

And you should know by now

You need to take a deep breath before you let it out

Hey, there you are

You want to talk about devotion

Keep this in motion

It’s easy when you just drown out the lights

And use what you ignore

You’d say anything to get inside my head

Debut the situation and beg me to wait for this

But you refuse me

‘Cause see, I am not your family

It doesn’t matter if we’re closing all the doors

If you can stand for anymore

My Favorite Highway What Are You Waiting For?

It’s never that, it’s never quite the innocence

You’ve taken back

All the words you thought I said

You never had,

You never had to say a word don’t say a word

Just hold me close

Hold me close and let me go

You’ll never know

You need to know exactly what you’re letting go

You’re letting go

So wipe away and

Take it slow

Is there anyone out there who is listening to anything that I say

Is there anyone out there who can take me hand

So, come on come on what are you waiting for

Waiting for your life to end to begin again

No you can’t back up and try again

You never had, you never had a fighting chance

So watch your back

Somebody always managed to remember that under attack

When you lose a friend do you pick up the slack

Whoever said that distance brings you closer they must not of know

That when you’re out of sight, your out of mind, and all alone

And when you are on your on

You hate to think that you should of known

Is there anyone out there who is listening to anything that I say

Is there anyone out there who will take me hand

So, come on come on what are you waiting for

Waiting for your life to end to begin again

No you can’t back up and try again

So, come on come on what are you waiting for

Waiting for your life to end to begin again

No you can’t back up and try again

You never did, you never did

Like you never said

I wish you hadn’t

Waiting for you

Waiting for you (oh)

So, come on come on what are you waiting for

Waiting for your life to end to begin again

No you can’t back up and try again

So, come on come on what are you waiting for

Waiting for your life to end to begin again

No you can’t back up and try again

My Favorite Highway You’re Making It Come Alive

I’ve finally come to realize that we are all the same

If there’s nothing left to lose then there’s every to gain

All the paragraphs and pages you could write could not contain

It is curious and careless and it’s flowing through my veins

The fear of growing old, and doing what you’re told

You can’t disguise a heart while it’s breaking

You hide behind the smile you’re faking

It’s all about the the chance you’re taking

Oh, and you know that you’re making it all come alive

If your life is so damn comfortable then why do you complain?

A reflection in the alcohol you’re pouring down the drain

Just because you paint a picture doesn’t mean it fits the frame

This is my West Coast intervention and I’m getting on that plane

When all of your mistakes are keeping you awake

The sun is setting and it’s ending ’cause you’re letting it go

Forgetting everything you already know

And it all goes to show that you’re moving to slow

It will end up changing you, it will end up changing you

Life flies by so you have to embrace it

Forget the past ’cause you cannot erase it

So live the dream, and learn to chase it

And when you can almost taste it

It’s all come alive

My Favorite Highway Murder On The Radio

Dodging bullets, dodging glances

Nervous and you shake while

he makes his advances

Sending tingles up your spine, there

is no way to define

A regret that you cannot rewind

Feeling empty, feeling broken

There’s a malice on

his lips you can taste while your choking

He is sour, he is

sharp, he is preying on your heart

Just relax while he

tears you apart

Take the dreams you had, throw them

all away

Whoa, singing you to sleep

While you

dream

While we murder on the radio

Feed desire,

feed the cancer

Swallowing the lust that will cripple the

dancer

With his hands around your neck

You have lost

all self-respect

You’re a mirror to ashamed to

reflect

Are you cautious, are you reckless

Guilty and

exposed, but to stubborn to confess

He is careless, he is

kind, he has one thing on his mind

He is determined to keep

you confined

My Favorite Highway Closer

Well I’ve been thinking about what I said

No baby, no need to talk about it

Well I’ve been playing it back in my head

No thanks, think I’ll get by without it

Well I’ve been thinking about what I said

No baby, no need to talk about it

Well I’ve been rollin’ around in your bed

No thanks, think I’ll get by without it

You can’t explain why you’re feeling alone

Falling asleep to a dial tone

You dream about the trouble you’re in

Then you pray that something fits

I wanna say that we’re getting closer every day

You know you can’t stop when you’re racing the clock, c’mon

This heart’s a bomb and we’re setting it off, alright

They’re handing me the numbers and figures, yeah

Try and calculate the ways I’ve been jaded

Nothing adds up so I end up frustrated

I’m giving up on love it’s so overrated

You hear the knock, will you open the door?

You try and fight, but its hard to ignore

You fall apart; spill your heart on the floor

I think its time that we settled the score

Well the moment will come when you’re all alone

Thats the moment I know when you’ll say

My Favorite Highway Walking On A Wire

I’m still here, still around

You put my picture face down

I count the hours, count aloud

You count me out

And you send your signals (Awoah-oh)

So I send flowers to the door

No I can’t walk through anymore (Oh-oh)

Never meant to break your back

Never meant to start a fire

Never meant to wound your head under the water, my love

When you get this call me back

I’ll be walking on a wire

Hoping you can take me back in spite

For everything I’ve done

Put on your favorite dress

I’m such a mess, I drag like a cigarette

You didn’t have to look so nice

To get me thinking twice

I’ve never seen you walk so proudly

I’ve never seen you sleep so soundly

I’m crying and trying to just quit

Because you just won’t do a thing

Never meant to break your back

Never meant to start a fire

Never meant to wound your head under the water, my love

When you get this call me back

I’ll be walking on a wire

Hoping you can take me back in spite

For everything I’ve done

We can’t go back, we can’t back to where we started

I can’t let back, I won’t let back

Leave us lonely hearted

I’d rather fight than sleep tonight

Please don’t roll your eyes love

I’m not about to let you go

Never meant to break your back

Never meant to start a fire

Never meant to wound your head under the water, my love

When you get this call me back

I’ll be walking on a wire

Hoping you can take me back in spite

For everything I’ve done

(We can’t go back, we can’t go back)

My Favorite Highway Steel City

She phones home composed, a bit panicked

Hesitates to confess she misses the Atlantic

The gulf streams, the palm trees, the car keys that took you away

She tries to explain

Oh boy

I wanna be fixed

I wanna be broken

I wanna be closed

I wanna be open

The love I thought had died is still alive and I hope that you don’t mind

Oh I

She says December will help me remember

The place that my heart calls home

When the pale city lights are aglow

And my heart’s feeling empty and cold (oh yeah)

Well there’s one place I know that I’m dying to be

Steel City you’ll always be a part of me

No it’s not what you said

And it’s not how you said it

But it all came undone the moment you meant it

I honestly can’t believe coincidence and possibility could sway

But I’ll try and explain baby

I wanna be fixed

I wanna be broken

I wanna be closed

I wanna be open

When stars and hearts align I’m sure you’ll come to find the love we had was blind

Oh I

She says December will help me remember

The place that my heart calls home

When the pale city lights are aglow

And my heart’s feeling empty and cold (oh yeah)

Well there’s one place I know that I’m dying to be

Steel City you’ll always be a part of me

Searching for something you need

And as you fall to the floor you crawl to your knees

Reach out for something you see

It’s like she was never there

You breathe in and hold the air

Like an unanswered prayer

She says December will help me remember

The place that my heart calls it’s home

When the pale city lights are aglow

And my heart’s feeling empty and cold

Well there’s one place I know that I’m dying to be

Steel City you’ll always..

Steel City you’ll always..

Steel City you’ll always be a part of me
