I fell asleep
Had a dream
Bill Murray and I were friends
We drove the world
From Boston to Japan
Blasting old Van Halen
And one night over drinks
Bill started crying

He said to me “kid, of all the stupid things I ever did
You know, I let her go when I should have pulled her in”
And he handed me his cell phone
When I called you were on your plane
Moving back to Portland for the rain

I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man

A hundred days
We hiked the coast
Of Galway in the rain
And Bill said something
Late one night in Spain
And it’s always just stuck with me

“You only get one person knows you best
And it’s temporary everybody else.”

I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man

I’m done with sleep,
Imagined things,
Cause dreams aren’t dreams
Til you wake up
So wake up
Just wake up here with me

I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man

Cinderella’s gone to New York City
Wants to shave her head and disappear
Eighteen years of never feeling pretty
Says she’s finally thinking clear

Ain’t too proud to swim or drown now baby
Ain’t too proud to sink or see it through

She says everybody wants to be with me
I got all I need (all I need)
To feel invincible
With my headphones on
Everybody pose for magazines
It’s all just noise to me (noise to me)
I feel invincible
With my headphones on
(My headphones, headphones
(My headphones on)

If anybody comes around to find me,
If anybody asks for me she said
Tell ’em all I’m in the deep end singing
With this music, in my head

Ain’t too proud to swim or drown now baby
Ain’t too proud to sink or see it through

She says everybody wants to be with me
I got all I need (all I need)
To feel invincible
With my headphones on
Everybody pose for magazines
It’s all just noise to me (noise to me)
I feel invincible
With my headphones on
(My headphones) My headphones on
I feel invincinble with my headphones on

People talking in their sleep
Can’t see the forest for the trees
It’s all scratch ticket lottery
Brave new world, same old crowd
Good things whisper, bad things shout
I don’t hear ’em now

She says everybody wants to be with me
I got all I need (all I need)
To feel invincible
With my headphones on
Everybody pose for magazines
It’s all just noise to me (noise to me)
I feel invincible
With my headphones on
(My headphones) My headphones on
I feel invincinble
With my headphones on
(My headphones) My headphones on
I feel invincinble
With my headphones on

kiss quick

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

This year all but disappeared,
Bought into fairy tales,
But Sleeping Beauty just
Kept score and tried to sleep more.
She said “I’m not quite myself tonight,
But the way you touch me, oh, makes me tongue tied,
That could be the wine, too.”

“Kiss quick, I’ve got a line out the door
Who all think they can save me.
One by one, they lay the world at my feet,
One by one, they drive me crazy.”

She said “I know Love,
And it’s all push and shove,
So stop talking
And put your back into it.”
Loaded, oh my hands shook to hold it
I turned her body on, I turned her body on myself.

Kiss quick, I’ve got a line out the door
Who all think they can save me.
One by one, they lay the world at my feet,
One by one, they drive me crazy.

Shut your mouth,
Pull me out, before this all goes grey.
One by one, they lay the world at my feet.
One by one, they go away.

Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Come on, come on,
Kiss quick, got a line out the door
Who all think they can save me.
Oh, one by one, they lay the world at my feet.
One by one, they drive me crazy.

Shut your mouth,
Pull me out before this all goes grey.
One by one, they lay the world at my feet.
One by one, they go away.
They go away.
They go away.

Sold my blood for money, baby, baby.
And I love how it feels.

This year, all but disappears.
