The Maine Lovely Sad

Ugly little feelings

Crawl inside my head

What’s the point in leaving

This California king-sized bed?

What-if’s

And the should-have’s

They start to eat my brain

The shadow of my youth has

Made the sun go black again

I look around and I don’t see the pretty things

The evil thoughts upstairs they don’t need company

This broken glass it reflects back

The person I’ve become

And now

Here I am

I feel numb

On the fence

On the run

Spill my guts

What an act

I am sad

But to me I’m lovely sad

Imaginary numbers

Control the ones we love

Fooled by affectation

And something up above

If you’re in love with diamonds

A simple death you’re dying

A wasted life to me

Here we are all liars

Just hoping to get higher

Than everyone we meet

Huxley said we live together but we’re always by ourselves

If you don’t like this type of weather you can move to someplace else

Significance is rarely found underneath your couch

So now

Here you are

Feeling numb

On the fence

On the run

Down and out

Such a drag

We’re all sad

But to me we’re lovely sad

The Maine 24 Floors

24 floors

Up in some hotel room

Feeling so low

Thinking of jumping soon

I look up and see the stars

Look down at speeding cars

Think of my family

How they’ll remember me

Eyes closed, I see your face

Breathe deep and hesitate

I hear the words you’d say

If you were here with me

You’d say,

“You don’t wanna die tonight

Take one more breath to clear your mind

Every moment’s relevant

Bittersweet and delicate

Tomorrow may not come again.”

24 floors

Up in some hotel room

Feeling so low

And some kind of muted blue

The TV talks at me

Apocalyptically

Fosters the fear in me

But somehow I hear your plea

With eyes closed, I see your face

I breathe deep and hesitate

I hear the words you’d say

Feels like you’re here with me

And you say,

“You don’t wanna die tonight

Take one more breath to clear your mind

Every moment’s relevant

Bittersweet and delicate

Tomorrow may not come again

Tonight is all there is”

Oh, if this is all there is

Yeah, if this is all there is

You don’t wanna die tonight

Take one more breath to clear your mind

This moment is relevant

Bittersweet and delicate

Tomorrow may not come again

Tonight is all there is

If this is all there is

24 floors

Up in some hotel room

The Maine Daisy

i picked you up and lifted your wilted frame into the sun.

i was taken back, yeah i was taken back,

and by the time i caught my breath,

you had blossomed into something that i did not expect.

and if it takes all night,

i swear i’ll wait,

for you,

forever.

sunlight, sunshine,

all for you my daisy.

we’re getting this before you leave,

all for you my daisy.

you’re a wreck and you know,

you’ve got me wrapped around your finger,

like a boy tangled in vines,

but i’ve figured you out.

and now we’re here,

we’re so confused,

and i wish that there was some way that i could tell you.

sunlight, sunshine,

all for you my daisy.

we’re getting this before you leave,

all for you my daisy.

all for, all for, all for you my daisy

[x2]

sunlight, sunshine,

all for you my daisy.

we’re getting this before you leave,

all for you my daisy.

Sunlight, (sun rise)

sunshine, (sun shine)

We’re getting this, getting this

all for you my daisy

The Maine Waiting For My Sun To Shine

Is this a waste of all my precious time

And could this chance that I take lead me to losing my mind

As I step to the edge, I saw the water below

Then I said to myself, “Sometimes you’ve gotta let go”

All I know is

All I know is

All I know is I’m still waiting for my sun to shine

Oh I see our clouds when I look around

Rain falls from my mouth as it hits the ground

Lead me to the light

‘Cause I’m still waiting

I’m waiting for my sun to shine

What does it take to be a liar

And all the chances we take

What we’re measured by

As I sat on my couch

I wondered why

It’s such a beautiful day

I’m still sitting inside-side-side

All I know is

All I know is

All I know is I’m still waiting for my sun to shine.

I was dancing with the devil

I was singing dirty songs

Pulling whiskey from the bottle

‘Till the early break of dawn

Oh my gorgeous Arizona

Here’s to gettin’ caught with you

I was runnin’ with the wolves

I was howlin’ at the moon

I felt lonely, lost, and stranded

I felt down and torn apart

With no cash left in my pockets

Just a shitty fortune card

It read “Strength will find you sooner

Then you ever thought it would”

Then the pain it turned to anger

Moved to joy, so now I’m good

And I’m one pack of smokes from broke

I can tell I will make it alone

So I’ll keep on fighting

Yeah, I’ll keep on fighting

In the end, when you sink, we float

When you’re one pack of smokes from broke

When you’re one pack of smokes from broke

When you’re one pack of smokes from broke

When you’re one pack of smokes from broke

I’m just one pack of smokes from broke

Yes I’m one pack of smokes from broke

I’m just one pack of smokes from broke

I’m just one pack of smokes from broke

I’m just one pack of smokes from broke

One pack of smokes from broke

One pack of smokes from broke

I’m just one pack of smokes from broke

I’m just one pack of smokes from broke

The Maine Black Butterflies & Déjà Vu

What, what would you say

If you could say

Everything you needed to

To the one you needed to?

You flash like a setting sun

You come around, I come undone

Can’t find the sound under my tongue when I look at you

I lose my voice when I look at you

Can’t make a noise though I’m trying to

Tell you all the right words

Waiting on the right words

Just another lovesick afternoon

Black butterflies and déjà vu

Hoping for the right words

Waiting for the right words

Just yesterday north of LA

I couldn’t help but think of you

Every time I think of you

You crash like a rolling wave

You come around I lose my brain

Can’t find the sound under my tongue when I look at you

I lose my voice when I look at you

Can’t make a noise though I’m trying to

Tell you all the right words

Waiting on the right words

Just another lovesick afternoon

Black butterflies and déjà vu

Hoping for the right words

Waiting for the right words

I’ve been searching for the right words, right words

But I, I can’t even find a an echo

Don’t you let go

There are only twenty six letters I can use

Just to tell you I won’t let go

Don’t you let go

I lose my voice when I look at you

Can’t make a noise though I’m trying to

Tell you all the right words

Waiting on the right words

Just another lovesick afternoon

Black butterflies and déjà vu

Hoping for the right words

Waiting for the right words

I lose my voice when I look at you

Can’t make a noise though I’m trying to

Tell you all the right words

Waiting on the right words

Just another lovesick afternoon

Black butterflies and déjà vu

Hoping for the right words

Waiting for the right words
