Pete Yorn Roses

There’s a sadness in your eyes

It’s the call you wait to make just to surprise me

Days on days off

We know it’s less dangerous

Days on days off

We know this is dangerous

It’s the roses in the water

It’s the highlight of your night

When the jasmine bloomed on Sunset Blvd

And we fell in love for the first time

It’s a ringing in your ears

It’s a sickness that you fear

Days on days off

We know it’s less dangerous

Days on days off

We know this is dangerous

It’s the water in the roses

It’s the headlights in the night

When the jasmine bloomed on Sunset Blvd

And we fell in love for the first time

When we fell in love for the first time

It’s the daylight in your eyes

It’s the call you wait to make just to surprise me

Days on days off

We know it’s less dangerous

Days on days off

We know when it’s dangerous

It’s the roses in the water

It’s the highlight of your night

When the jasmine blooms on Sunset Blvd

I remember the first time we fell in love

I remember the first time we fell in love

I remember the first time we fell in love

Pete Yorn Committed

It’s alright

I won’t commit my friend

And if you pay for your mistakes

You can break apology

It’s just fine

I won’t commit my friend

When you come back from your escape

You can make a person’s day

Cos it’s your time

You come back and you don’t tell the truth to me, no more

It’s alright

I won’t commit my friend

When you come back from your escape

I don’t need apology

Yeah it’s just fine

I won’t convince my friend

And you don’t know just what to say

Once you make your plan you follow it just right

I know you never meant to let nobody down

You never feel the way I found

Come and see

Oh, I won’t commit my friend

You won’t pay for your mistakes

And I don’t make apologies

Yeah it’s alright

I won’t convince my friend

When you don’t know just what to say

I don’t think I’ll ever come to hear it all

You wanna feel so bad for doing nothing all this time

You’re doing nothing

(You just feel left out!)

You’re always up to no one’s business

Always up to:

Only witness

When you come back from your escape

Then I could follow you to hell.

Pete Yorn June

Pots and pans are indestructible.

How do you respect your room?

If you hadn’t gone tomorrow,

You could have stayed on ‘til June.

It’s alright if I was older,

It’s ok to lose your age,

And I, want to follow you,

I do, I do.

It’s another I could trust you,

It’s another thing to swear,

I’m ok with all the others,

It’s just her I cannot stand,

I’m old enough to feel the way I do

And I know that you are true,

it’s just a part of my genes.

And I want you to know,

it’s hard to wait on,

I’ll swallow you whole,

Wait kindly in the next room.

And you have stayed,

A mile away from me,

And you will stay a mile away from me

If you know what’s good for you,

You could have stayed until June

Pete Yorn Future Life

This future life’s been freaking me out

Still attached to being the new kid in town

No family, no real responsibilities

In my friends, they’re diving in deep

To all this holy matrimony

House, a dog, two kids and a van

Good jobs in real estate, a fireman

Why the hell does it scare the shit out of me

Am I different, am I afraid

Life’s been great to me

It feels a little sad

Gotta break out of here

Appreciate what I have

Life’s been great to me

It feels a little sad

Gotta break out of here

Appreciate what I have

Why do I want what I haven’t got

So planted on the things that I want

Making pretty all these memories

Cause it’s easy to get stuck

The spirit lives been guiding me out

A love so strong, erasing all of my doubt

I see a future that was made for me

Wherever I may go

Life’s been great to me

It feels a little sad

Gotta break out of here

Appreciate what I have

Life’s been great to me

Oh, yeah, it feels a little sad

Gotta break out of here

Appreciate what I have

Cause it’s easy to get stuck

It happens a lot

Cause it’s easy to get stuck

It happens

I can’t avoid anything

Got to take it all in

Take a battle stance

I know that I can win

It’s cliche of time, I know it must be true

When what you want is what you have

Then you know you found you

Life’s been great to me

Oh, yeah, it feels a little sad

Gotta break out of here

Appreciate what I have

Life’s been great to me

Oh, yeah, it feels a little sad

Gotta break out of here

Appreciate what I have

Life’s been great to me

Life’s been great

Life’s been great to me

Life’s been great

Oh oh

Life’s been great to me

Life

Pete Yorn Man In Uniform

Man in uniform told me he wants to get out

Didn’t see it coming head in from the west

And it’s he who choose

To reach another level

I never even saw it

before today

sew his uniform

paint a different circle

can i wonder how

you never let me down?

If it’s we who choose

I’ll reach another level

To be that one who never lost a day

But it’s he who choose

I’ll reach out for the takers

I never saw them make it in a scene

Man in uniform

Wants to get out

He didn’t see it coming

Blaze in from the north

So it’s they who choose

I’ll reach out for beginners

I know you could not miss it,

It’s a date!

A little while :

Just for a little while

I know you never wanted it this way

I can see, I can see.

Pete Yorn Tomorrow

I can take you anywhere

I just want to get to know you

I can take you anywhere

I just want to get to know you

Hand on your heart

Wind the clock

Tomorrow is another day

Tomorrow is another day…

There’s so much of this world I never see

In front of me

Far too much of this world we’ve never been

Forgive me

I can take you anywhere

I just wanna get to know you

I can take you anywhere

I just wanna get to love you

Hand on your heart

Tomorrow is another day

Hand on your hope

Tomorrow we will, tomorrow we will get away…

I just wanna get to know you

I just wanna hear you say…

I just wanna get to love you

I just wanna get away

Hand on your heart

Tomorrow is another day

Hand on your hope

Tomorrow we will, tomorrow we…

Hand on your heart

Tomorrow is another day

Hand on your hope

Tomorrow we will, tomorrow we will get away…

Tomorrow is another day

Pete Yorn Splendid Isolation

I want to live alone in the desert

I want to be like Georgia O’Keefe

I want to live on the Upper East Side

And never go down in the street

Michael Jackson in Disneyland

Don’t have to share it with nobody else

Lock the gates, Goofy, take my hand

And lead me through the world of self

Splendid isolation

I don’t need no one

Splendid isolation

Don’t want to wake up with on one beside me

Don’t want to take up with nobody new

Don’t want nobody coming by without calling first

Don’t want nothing to do with you

I’m putting tinfoil up on the windows

Lying down in the dark to dream

I don’t want to see their faces

I don’t want to hear them scream

Splendid isolation

I don’t need no one

Splendid isolation

Splendid isolation

I don’t need no one

Splendid isolation

Don’t want to wake up with no one beside me

Don’t want to take up with nobody new

Don’t want nobody coming by without calling first

Don’t want nothing to do with you

Pete Yorn Ice Age

When winter comes

Along these shores

Old Hollywood

We’re knocking down

We’re sifting through

We are the actual tigers

When winter comes

They leave behind us

Throw your arms around my neck

And hold me tightly

There’s a lot that we will get

I’m asking you…

Let your diamond bracelet fall

Over the ice age

Over the ice age

Those summer years

We’d follow them

In light of day

In light of us

We’ll see it through

When they’re playing our song

Those summer years

Have long since gone

Throw your arms around my neck

And whisper softly

Of a thing that we will get

I’m asking you

Let your diamond bracelet fall

Over the ice age

Over the ice age

I want to go back

I want to go back

In future times

We’ll hold it closer

Imagining

We weren’t older

Yet, through it all

They’ll be playing our song

Throw your arms around my neck

And whisper softly

Of a thing that we will get

I’m asking you…

Let your diamond bracelet fall

Over the ice age

Over the ice age…

Pete Yorn Close

Hey what’s going on?

I could still be strong

For us tonight

I know it will get hard

But I won’t run away

I’ll figure it out

Just stay close

Wait for the sun

Learn to live this life, learn to get along

All this innocence

That we’ve come to miss

Will make us stronger

I don’t have the time to go back in time

I already lived it

Just stay close

Wait for the sun

Learn to live this life, learn to get along

Just stay close wait for the stars

Until they realign just like the first time

With all we’ve come to know we work so hard for what?

I don’t wanna miss it

Just stay close

Wait for the sun

Learn to live this life

Learn to get along

Just stay close wait for the stars

Until they realign just like the first time

The first time …
