Parachute American Secrets

[Verse 1:]

When the sun fell low in the blood red sky yeah

Every house called out as we passed them by yeah

She would grab my hand as the trees leaned in yeah

Oh I’m still racing home from the place I’ve been

[Chorus:]

It was all I knew, I was waiting for the big one

And I stay forever (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)

American secrets (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)

Had a dream it was ours and we just didn’t know yet

[Verse 2:]

We would drive by right through every lonely street yeah

Smell the truth in her hair felt the world in my feet yeah

But we were just two kids in a beat up car

Oh I’m still driving home from the things I’ve done

[Chorus:]

It was all I knew, I was waiting for the big one

And I stay forever (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)

American secrets (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)

Had a dream it was ours that we just didn’t know yet (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)

American secrets (oooooh oh oooh oh ohhhh)

Had a dream it was ours that was lost in the regrets

[Bridge:]

We were caught on the inside

Left it all on that bedside

Give me one more minute with those baby blues

We pull up

Oh she looks back and waves as I wait too long

I can picture her room as the lights go on

I’m still dancing along with the way it was

I’m still dancing along with the way it was

Give me one more, give me one more

Give me one more minute with my baby

Give me one more, give me one more

Give me one more minute with American secrets

Give me one more, give me one more

Oh she looks back and waves as she slips inside

Every hope in the world and those bright blue eyes

I’m still dancing along with the way it was

Got my mind made up

And I’m coming back for you

I can hear your voice calling and I’ll be there soon

I can see you there in the bedroom by those stairs

Oh I’ve always been running but I don’t know where

And ohhh oh oooh and ohhh oh oooh

It took 25 years but I finally see

Not the boy I was in the car that you saw leave

I’m still not the man that I thought I’d be

But when those trumpets sound when the good Lord calls my name

Oh I’m gonna be with you

Oh I’m gonna be with you

And ohhh oh oooh

And ohhh oh oooh

It took 25 years but I finally see

And ohhh oh oooh

And ohhh oh oooh

It took 25 years but I finally see

It took 25 years but I finally see

It took 25 years but I think I see

Parachute Blame It On Me

You can blame it on the small things

You can blame it on your heartbeat

The wrong day

You can blame it on your regrets

And all your little secrets

You keep them

You can show me all your old scars

That you got from all the old wars

You fought so you could tell me

“I’m not the one who needs the saving”

You can say what you want but it’s only getting better

It’s alright, oh baby it’s alright

You can try to deny but it’s only getting better

It’s alright, oh baby it’s alright now

You think it feels right but you don’t know

You’ve got everything you wanted but you’re not sure

You can say what you please if it’s all that you need

To believe it’s getting better, you can blame it on me

There’s a million ways to hold on

To everything that goes wrong, the sad songs

Oh but all these different reasons

Are just a million different ways to say the same old thing

Now tell me, “I’m not the one who needs the saving”

You can say what you want but it’s only getting better

It’s alright, oh baby it’s alright

You can try to deny but it’s only getting better

It’s alright, oh baby it’s alright now

You think it feels right but you don’t know

You’ve got everything you wanted but you’re not sure

You can say what you please if it’s all that you need

To believe it’s getting better, you can blame it on me

You can blame it on me

You can blame it on me

You can blame it on the small things

Say what you want but it’s only getting better

It’s alright, oh baby it’s alright

You can try to deny but it’s only getting better

It’s alright, oh baby it’s alright now

You think it feels right but you don’t know

You’ve got everything you wanted but you’re not sure

You can say what you please if it’s all that you need

To believe it’s getting better, you can blame it on me

You can blame it on me [x2]

Come on

Parachute Didn’t See It Coming

A sky blue limo rolls past me on the street outside

And I saw your face like some sort of neon dream

And of all the cars and the bars and the stars on Sunset Boulevard

I saw you and you couldn’t tell me what that means

Or what I’d seen

Oh but when it hit me

It was not the same thing

I had missed it all like tears in the rain

Finally I was seeing

Everything so clearly

Took what I’d been thinking

And washed it away

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

Well the streetlights flickered

And the hot air sighed

The conversation it stopped on a dime

A cruise missile flying into this little

Land of these naive dreams of mine

And I was told don’t speak with your mouth open

But I couldn’t help it cause you had chosen

As I watched that sky blue limo drive away

Oh but when it hit me

It was not the same thing

I had missed it all like tears in the rain

Finally I was seeing

Everything so clearly

Took what I’d been thinking

And washed it away

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

A little skin

A little money

A little taste

A little honey

A little white lie

But if you love it

Tell me who am I to judge?

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

I didn’t see it coming

Parachute Drive You Home

You won’t cry, standing on the porch because you said goodbye

Told him you were leaving, now you’re high and dry

You had nowhere else to go, I open up the door and let you come inside

Ooh you didn’t mean it

Ooh he’s gonna ask where you’ve been

Ooh before you go back

Ooh

Yeah, summer heat, staring at the ceiling, but I just can’t sleep wondering what you’re doing

When it comes to me, there’s nothing I can do, it’s always up to you

Yes and I lie awake in bed at night

I picture you when I close my eyes

I can see you there, in the porch, in the light

I might never feel your kiss

Baby let me tell you this when it’s over

And the thrill is gone

Digging up the ones I missed

When’s it coming back again

When’s it coming back around again

When it’s coming back again

You can try what you want

But the past knows what you did

And I can’t seem to get away from it

When’s it coming back again

When’s it coming back around

Baby coming back around again

I’ve been chewed up, I’ve been spit out

But never thought to quit

I’ve taken blows and felt them all

But nothing close to this

So when you sleep so peacefully

While you’re dreaming I’m outside

Digging up the ones I missed

When’s it coming back again

And as I’m standing there, she walks in

And blurry fears are coming clear

And I can finally see

When’s it coming back again

When’s it coming back around again

I don’t ever know

When it’s coming back again

But the past knows what you did

And I can’t seem to get away from it

Parachute All That I Am

Well the lights go down in Brooklyn

As she’s walking out the door

Oh and they’re lining up like soldiers

Going off to fight the war

And all the colors look like fireworks

In skies she knew before

But the nights can’t hide the days

That the tears roll down her face

And the light hits those eyes

As she’s dying to say

Just take me away

Well l through fog that sits like blankets

And that’s drowning out the glow

You can hear voices loud

And sing out a song nobody knows

But to her it sounds like home

But the nights can’t hide the days

That the tears roll down her face

And the light hits those eyes

As she’s dying to say

Just take me away from all that I am

Just take me away from all that I am

Well the fog sits like blankets

And it smothers the glow

Cause the nights can’t hide the days

That the tears roll down her face

And the light hits those eyes

As she’s dying to say

That the nights can’t hide the days

That the tears roll down her face

And the light hits those eyes

As she’s dying to say

Just take me away from all that I am [x4]

That everyone thought would be in this dream.

Everywhere I go,

Parachute Disappear

Take the phone

It’s out there all alone

Left it on the table where it was

Keep the car

The keys are in the front

It’s out there on the street right where I parked

And I know I don’t know much

But I know that a man feels many things

it’s a fleeting urge to run

Like a bird flying by on a summer breeze

Like the sound of a train if you’re listening

It just fades in

then it disappears

Mark the map

Pack a couple bags

Treat myself a tic and don’t come back

And I know I don’t know much

But I know that a man feels many things

It’s a fleeting urge to run

Like a bird flying by on a summer breeze

Like the sound of a train if you’re listening

It just fades in

then it disappears

If I could disappear

You don’t have to know why you’re going

just why it is you wanna leave

If I disappear

You don’t have to know where you’re going

just where it is you wanna be

You don’t have to know where you’re going

just where it is you wanna be

And I know I don’t know much

But I know that a man feels many things

It’s a fleeting urge to run

Like a bird flying by on a summer breeze

Like the sound of a train if you’re listening

It just fades in

then it disappears

Walk away

Leave it all behind

I dream of the escape but never try

Parachute Everything

Tangled up like streets below us

New York, 2 AM

Rain is falling, sirens wailing

Quiet on your bed

You ask me how I feel

And it’s really no big deal

You’re only everything

You’re only everything

You’re only everything to me

Union Square on Sunday morning

Wind wakes up the trees

I can’t help but stare and wonder

How you fell for me

It’s too much to explain

But believe me when I say

You’re only everything

You’re only everything

You’re only everything to me

Every now and then I tend to fall apart

Blame my worried mind

Blame my skittish heart

But every kiss from you

Feels like I’m coming home

To a place I’ve never known

But where I belong

Cause

You’re only everything

You’re only everything

You’re only everything to me

Everything to me

You’re only everything

I said you’re only everything

You’re only everything to me

To me
