The Maine I Must Be Dreaming

She thinks I’m crazy

Judging by the faces that she’s making

And I think she’s pretty

But pretty’s just part of the things she does that amaze me

And she calls me sweetheart

I love it when she wakes me when it’s still dark

And she watches the sun

But she’s the only one I have my eyes on

Tell me that you love me

And it’ll be alright

Are you thinking of me?

Just come with me tonight

You know I need you

Just like you need me

Can’t stop, won’t stop

I must be dreaming

Can’t stop, won’t stop

I must be dreaming

She moves in closer

Whispering to me “I thought I told ya”

And oh she’s playing games now

And I figured it out now that we’re

Now that we’re closer

Two kids, one love

Who cares if we make it up

Her voice is sweet sound

Our clothes lay on the ground

She moves in closer

Whispers “I thought I told ya”

Tell me that you love me

And it’ll be alright

Are you thinking of me?

Just come with me tonight

You know I need you

Just like you need me

Can’t stop, won’t stop

I must be dreaming

Can’t stop, won’t stop

I must be dreaming

Remember the day when we started this

And she made the shape of my heart with her hands

We try to make some sense of it

But she called me on the phone and said

Tell me that you love me

And it’ll be alright

Are you thinking of me?

Just come with me tonight

You know I need you

Just like you need me

Can’t stop, won’t stop

I must be dreaming

Go one and tell em that you love me

And it’ll be alright (I must be dreaming)

Are you thinking of me

Just come with me tonight (I must be dreaming)

She moves in closer

Can’t stop, won’t stop

I must be dreaming

The Maine Bad Behavior

“I never wanna be a distraction,”

You say as you’re unashamed and naked.

I feel okay all over,

Void of all composure.

And I know this may sound narcissistic,

I like the lips you kiss with.

But I wanna wear your lipstick,

‘Cause it means I got to kiss them.

You say you like the sound of cigarettes after sex and I say,

“Yeah, yeah, yeah.”

One, two hits,

Her lips and bad behavior,

I’m in danger.

Yeah, yeah

Three-four AM,

The feeling’s getting stranger,

I’m in danger

Bad behavior

And I don’t have time for your feelings

You tell me,

You’re insecure,

But don’t be,

Stay soft, but don’t be gentle,

It’s altogether mental.

Let’s go to a place where we can forget,

We haven’t left the room yet.

You eloquently stated,

Leaving’s overrated.

You say,

You say you like the sound of cigarettes after sex and I say,

“Yeah, yeah, yeah.”

One, two hits,

Her lips and bad behavior,

I’m in danger.

Yeah, yeah

Three-four AM,

The feeling’s getting stranger,

I’m in danger.

I wanna inhale you in small doses

but adore you like the roses,

You’re bad for me, yeah,

But you’re bad for me, yeah.

You medicate me with your poses

I’m a lush. I know you notice

You’re bad for me, yeah,

But you’re bad for me, yeah

You’re bad for me, yeah

And I say, “Yeah, yeah, yeah.”

One, two hits,

Her lips and bad behavior,

I’m in danger.

Yeah, yeah

Oh here we go again,

Hope it don’t lose its flavour,

And I’m in danger

Yeah, I’m in danger

I think I know you’re bad for me

I know you’re bad for me.

The Maine Bliss

This is where we belong

This is where we long to be

Reposed in hell

Just breathe

And I say,

“What doesn’t kill you

Will keep you sane”

Just go lift the veil

Off of your left brain

Is this not what you’re here for?

Is this not why you came?

Buy a ticket to a place

That no one can explain

Just take the ride

Allow yourself

To give in

To this bliss

A day late

Another dollar short

I had to burn the bills to keep warm

I fear the disease they carry

But those paper cuts don’t scare me now

Then I can see

Is this not what you’re here for?

Is this not why you came?

Buy a ticket to a place

That no one can explain

Just take the ride

Allow yourself

To give in

To this bliss

Is this not what you’re here for?

Is this not why you came?

Buy a ticket to a place

That no one can explain

Is this not what you’re here for?

Is this not why you stayed?

Find your way to feelin’ nothing

Can replace

Just take the ride

Allow yourself

To give in

To this

The Maine Kennedy Curse

Oh, this feels like the Kennedy Curse

And everything inside is dead

I’m on the fence about what feels worse

The one leaving or the one in bed

In a dream she’s talking dirty to me

Just in a language that I can’t speak

Then she kisses my scars

As she cuts out my heart

And she places it right on her sleeve

I’m having visions of the way it will end

I can see it all now in my head

Well, you will cast the first stone

And my sail will be torn

I’ll lose my vessel to a dark sea bed

Will someone just come and take my heart?

Set it down in front of moving cars?

I feel nothing at all

So won’t someone just come and take my heart

And tear it apart?

Oh, my thoughts—they remain perverse

And I know I am the first of my kin

To be born with this curse

So persuade and coerce

Because I’m willing to be born again

Wish someone would come and take my heart

Set it down in front of moving cars

I feel nothing at all

So won’t someone just come and take my heart

And tear it apart?

And tear it apart?

And tear it apart?

Just tear it apart

The Maine Birthday In Los Angeles

L.A. pick up the phone

I need to talk to you

Stop sleeping with my new friends

And all the old ones too

Remember when we met?

I thought you thought I was boring

Then you called me on the phone

To arrange my birthday party

Well this ain’t a scripted movie

I don’t drive a fancy car

Those flashing lights don’t mean a thing to me

Goodbye L.A.

You showed me round the house

Took me by the wrist

Introduced me to your pals

The Scientologists

We cut the cake and sang

And I tried to fake a smile

Then I drank and drank and drank

Cuz I felt so out of style

But this ain’t my birthday party

Oh it’s just a fashion show

Yeah this is something, it just isn’t me

So long L.A.

So long L.A.

Adieu Ms. Hollywood

Enjoy the hazy city

I’m sure you’re feeling good

But soon enough you’ll miss me

Well I ain’t got too much money

And nobody knows my name

But here is something I have to say

Fuck you L.A.

The Maine Count ’em One, Two, Three

You count em’ one, two three

You look so cute when you get that mad

You drain the life from me and it feels oh so good

The looks you give are so contagious

The way we move is so outrageous

Just let me in (wasting time)

Just let me in Let’s make it look right

So stay up and get down

Sleep’s just time spent wasting time

So get down, get down

Let’s make it happen all night

You’re moving close, my pulse is racing

We’re getting close, yeah I can taste it

I’ve never done it quite like this

So slow it down now, just slow it down

The looks you give are so contagious

The way we move is so outrageous

Just let me in (wasting time)

Just let me in, Let me in

So stay up and get down

Sleep’s just time spent wasting time

So get down, get down

Let’s make it happen all night

Reach out touch someone

So try to catch me if you can

Reach out touch someone

Touch someone (touch me)

Reach out touch someone

So try to catch me if you can

Reach out touch someone

Touch someone (just touch)

Reach out touch someone

So try to catch me if you can

Reach out touch someone

Touch someone (touch)

So stay up and get down

Sleep’s just time spent wasting time

So get down, get down

Let’s make it happen all night

The Maine Winter Means Nothing

Spring was everything at 17, now I’m just cold

Summer fell to fall and left and old November froze

Without you it’s a season I need no one to go back home

The reds and all the greens and me are fading when you’re gone

Winter means nothing

Yes, winter nothing

Winter means nothing to me now

Without you

Without you

I’m having trouble sleeping like a child on Christmas Eve

I’m restless in the night like the lights upon the tree

Yeah summer fell to fall and left a wrong November’s gone

Without you it’s a season I need no one to come back home

And winter means nothing

Yes, winter means nothing

Yeah, winter means nothing to me now

Without you

Without you

Without you

And winter means nothing

Yeah, this winter means nothing

Winter means nothing to me now

The Maine Lost In Nostalgia

Don’t you get lost in nostalgia, no

Turn something soft a little louder, yeah

Don’t you get lost in nostalgia, no

It’s not too late, it’s not too late, no

Don’t you get lost in nostalgia, no

Turn that little love a little louder, yeah

Don’t you get lost in nostalgia, no

It’s not too late, it’s not too late, no

The Maine Raining In Paris

Midnight comes in

Paris and as

I light my cigarette

The rain it hits my face

So I start walking

Toward the Ferris wheel

From my hotel on

Champs-Élysées

For now I am alone

I might always be alone

My heart is in the city of love

But it’s raining in Paris

What good is a heart of gold

With nobody to share it with

It’s coming down, it’s coming down

My head can hardly bare it

My heart is in the city of love

But it’s raining in Paris

So let it rain on me

See my heart’s on fire

But I always got cold feet

Love never really did anything for me

Try telling that to this goddamn city

And if the storm should stop

I’d ask you to dance on some cliche mountain top

We’d share straws at your favorite coffee shop

But life it ain’t no romance novel

My heart is in the city of love

But it’s raining in Paris

What good is a heart of gold

With nobody to share it with

It’s coming down, it’s coming down

My head can hardly bare it

My heart is in the city of love

But it’s raining in Paris

Oh, let it come on down

I met a man

Who sold umbrellas

And

Just five dollars

Saved me from all that rain

For now I am alone

I think I like being alone

The Maine Room With No Windows

This town it’s a black hole,

Sucking me in,

Fucking me up,

Yes, it does

I could just stay and keep praying for things to get better

But they won’t

And the only two things holding me here

Are whiskey and women

Oh, you’re so naive

Just like a child

And I’ll be happy

It just might take a while

‘Cause you can’t make me smile

Oh, you can’t make me smile

And I live in a room with no windows

Too much time on my hands

Too much shit in my head

Yes, there is

I do what I must to stay alive

Now I wanna feel it

But I will not bother building a pool

I’ll never swim in

[2x]

Oh, you’re so naive

You’re just like a child

And I’ll hide my teeth

‘Cause it might take a while

Until I learn how to smile

Oh, ’cause you can not make me smile
