Unscrew Corks He may be 23 but he's no me, baby, he's no me And she may be 19 but she's not free, maybe she could be Free... So I sigh and sing myself to sleep beneath a Simpson's sky All I ever asked of you was to unscrew corks in my eyes What a wonderland we'd find Lonely nights, we're not the types to lead diluted lives That's why we try These keys see my dreams and so can she see the me I'll be When I'll be Free... Oooooh what a blunder running under the sun, my friend What a wonder I am still myself in the end Once I waited under thunder over head What a wonder I am still myself in The end

What Do I Know? For all that's going right seems more is going wrong and it's bringing me down, you see For all that's gold in life, seems more and more is bronze and it's slowly drowning me For lack of better words I was down and out Couldn't find a job in this town Until my life, I turned around I stayed a slob, sleeping on the ground And then a train to take it felt a little bit like a big break Life came with a job and a house and a girl in a pretty little flowered blouse But oh, what do I know? What do I know? Where do I go? Curses we throw Unable to choose, now that we're used What do we do? Down and out to up and in My money didn't change which skin I'm in I woke up and I left I am blessed to rest interest in jest Do you ever feel like me? Do you ever feel like me? Do you have a field like me? Do you ever feel a little bit like me? For all that's going right seems more is going wrong and it's bringing me down, you see For all that's gold in life, seems more and more is bronze and it's slowly drowning me Oh, what do I know?

Love Again 01:18
Love Again Red roses all around the room That's how I feel about you That's how I feel about you Dimpled dreams of velvet thoughts, I sleep to the sound of you That's how I feel about you And if you feel it's real, whatever has swept up and chimed our minds A subtle wind has willed our souls collide And as I vibrate, this fling is feeling a lot like love again love again love again It's feeling a lot like love again love again love again

Lizzie Says 04:52
Lizzie Says Lizzie asks if my cigarette tastes better than a kiss these days I've come to count on her like a drug Confusable, reusable and wounded I am sprawled trying to inspire love Well she's armed with legs and if looks could kill you know that I'd be halfway to hell and if her mind had pockets they'd be full of shells Lizzie sits alone and writes me just to judge the faults she sees but still it's all I want to hear her voice The days are gone when she was wrong and now I'm only writing songs to try to feel like I have any choice Well she's trying hard to act unkind I can see her heart's still mine Every time I try to cry the only line inside my mind is Lizzie says Lizzie's lived and loved and lost and lusted over little thoughts but now the time has come to get me back The same old game of blame's a shame but now she knows I feel her pain She always seems to disregard the facts Well she's trying hard to act unkind I can see her heart's still mine Every time I try to cry the only line inside my mind is Lizzie says yes and Lizzie says no well Lizzie makes me guess 'cause what Lizzie says I don't know

Angel 02:41
Angel Did your feet finally touch the ground and now your soul's in the lost and found well baby girl you know it's gonna be alright Did your little head hit the clouds and on the way back down you saw a side of this world that spun you as you fell Angel, pray tell what's it like in Hell? Do you feel life's not enough until the road gets rough you've learned the things you think you need to know But when the days felt like a crime the nights then ceased to rhyme I saw you crying but I'll never tell Angel, pray tell what's it like in Hell? Then I fell into a carousel We can disconnect As soon as I go I know she will forget me in June I'll be home to blow more opportunities But we can disinfect we can turn off our love and even though our trust is wrecked it's still not where my mind dwells When we're well we'll find how far we fell

Please (With Red) My world's swirled with a girl's world and she would not believe the trouble I foresee for me See, I had accepted what everyone said was nothing short of a little more of a little bore She wanted it more than me I can see it easily I'm on my knees Please Now as I lie to a moonlit sky I find my mind's not mine Combining with thine in time Now I've been elected, though under-protected, as whore imported from lore - what a chore Her flaunts ignored the we When night might flee so sleazily will you ease my dreams? Please She said she'd like to shed some light so I can keep my eyes ahead She came to me in disguise, this is what she said Everything we keep in sight seems a little bit bred by dread Even in the brightest light, with eyes closed all we see is red I said we have to change our minds if we ever wana get ahead If you believe the blame's all mine, insight's inside yourself instead Everything we keep in sigh seems a little bit bred by dread Even in the brightest light, with eyes closed all we see is red Now I've been elected, though underprotected as whore imported from lore - what a chore Her flaunts ignored the we When night might flee so sleasily She leaves bereaved Please My world's swirled with a girl's world But I do not foresee anything but glee for me

Oh woe is me the one that I love has to leave So soon after I found you I love you so beautiful girl so soon after you found me you're torn I know cruel world
