Bad Day
It's been a bad day
Another bad day and all I want to do
Is look at you and know I'm okay..
From where Iím sittin', these shoes ain't fittin',
And I'm walking backwards, looking down
Don't see the sky I see the ground
Above, below, you look and so you wonder
Where the time has gone of looking up
Tomorrow's on the way..
Above, below, you look and so you say
When I wake up in the morning
Is it gonna be another lonely day?

If I Die
Tailgates, long talks
And your superficial friends
Shiny, silver Fords
that lead us to dead ends,
And I said, "Do you lick these salty wounds
that you, yourself condone?"
I sit, wait, and I am all alone.
But I can't go home
Cause you're my home..
And if I die
So you won't be so close to me,
And I won't be the one who sticks around..
If I'm awake,
So you won't go to sleep, I promise,
And I won't be the one who lets you down.
No, I won't let you down,
No, I won't let you down.

Straw Dog
Staring into the intersection,
She thinks that she can fly and she might.
Holding on in a new direction,
She's gonna try it tonight.
The closer I get to feeling,
the further that I'm feeling from alright.

The more I step into the sun,
the more I step out of the light.
Jessica is covered in a blanket,
On a sunday porch.
Thinking of the weekends,
She would party in the city.
She doesn't have a flame,
She'd prefer to burn out like a torch
If she gets nowhere in life,
At least she knows she's pretty.

She says,
Hey now The straw dog's out in the street.
Hey now there's chemicals in the clouds.
Hey now they're calling all the police,
But they wont get to us anyhow.

Walking By
And these nights I get high just from breathing.
When I lie here with you, I'm sure that I'm real,
Like that firework over the freeway..
I could stay here all day, but that's not how you feel.
So why do you leave these questions unanswered?
The circus awaits and you're already gone,
my cheshire cat doorstop with fear in your smile..
What makes it so easy for you to be, walking by?
And what did I do that you can't seem to want me?
And why do we lie here and whisper goodbyes?
And where can I go that your pictures won't haunt me?
What makes it so easy for you to be, walking by?
Walking by.
Walking by..

You're Gone
Taking steps back through the words I should've said to you.
They all got lost, you went away..
Well I feel sick and, you just don't care anymore, anymore.
Hours to be with you..
Minutes of me in you..
And I cant feel this happening.
So tie my hands back, and make me feel you coming down.
I'm coming down.
And you don't care..
Your face is on a billboard,
And you're everywhere.
You don't care much for interviews.
You're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you're gone,
You're gone, you're gone, you're gone, you've gone, away..
If you don't like being hurt then please don't stay.

Constantine (live version.)
I can't imagine all the people that you know,
And the places that you go,
When the lights are turned down low.
And I don't understand all the things you've seen,
But I'm slipping in between
You and your big...dreams.
It's always you
In my big dreams.

And you tell me that it's over..
I wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clovers..
And your restless, and I'm naked.
You gotta get out,
You can't stand to see me shaking.
Could you let me go?
I didn't think so.

And you don't wanna be here in the future,
So you say the present's just a pleasent interruption to the past.
And you don't wanna look much closer,
Cause you're afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had crashed.
And it did
Because of me..

And then you bring me home ,
because you're afraid to find out that you're alone, oh.
And I'm sleeping in your living room,
But we don't have much room to live.

I had these dreams, in them I learned to play guitar,
Maybe cross the country,
Become a rock star..
And there was hope in me that I could take you there.
But dammit you're so young,
Well I don't think I care.
And if I hurt you
Then I'm sorry.
It's just this guilt has got the best of me..

Then you bring me home,
Cause we both know what it's like to be alone, oh.
And I'm dreaming in your living room
But we don't have much room to live.

And Konstantine is walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good,
Standing in her underwear?
And I was thinking,
What I was thinking..
We've been drinking and it doesn't get me anywhere..

My Konstantine came walking down the stairs,
And all that I could do is touch her long, blonde, hair.
And I've been thinking,
It hurts me thinking that these nights
When we were drinking, no they never got us anywhere,

This is because I can spell confusion with a 'k',
It's hard to like it,
It's to dying in another's arms and why I had to try it.
It's to Jimmy Eat World and those nights in my car,
When the first star you see, may not be a star.
I'm not your star..
Isn't that what you said?
What you thought this song meant?

And if this is what it takes,
Just to lie with my mistakes..
And live with what I did to you,
All the hell I put you through..
I always catch the clock,
It's 11:11,
And now you want to talk.
It's not hard to dream,
You'll always be my Konstantine..

They'll never hurt you like I do.
No, they'll never hurt you like I do,
No, no, no no no no no no.

This is to a girl who got into my head
With all the pretty things she did,
Hey, you know,
You keep me up in bed.
This is to a girl who got into my head
With all these fucked up things I did..
Hey, maybe,
You could keep me up in bed,
My Konstantine..
You spin around me like a dream, we played out on this movie screen..
And I said,
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Oh god I miss you..

And then you bring me home,
And we'll go to sleep, but this time, not alone, no, no.
And you'll kiss me in your living room,
Oh, ya see, I know
That I've been missing in my living room.
Cause it's all you, yea this is what I've missed, what I've missed..
We don't have much room
I said, does anybody need that room?
Cause we all need a little bit of room,
To live..

My Konstantine
