Lyrics

can’t be wrong (kennedy)
sarah – I don’t know what you got, but you do – and I’m telling the truth just to you know more than the world thinks you know, but it’s so hard to show/you can’t be wrong, for so long I’ve been waiting for you can’t be wrong, can you?/sarah – I’m living in a bad dream/do you know what an age difference means, cause I do – and I’m just about ready to break, ‘cause it’s all I can take/’cause I’ve been so lonely, self-important, like I live for dying/I’ve been so lonely and I don’t want to give up trying/you can’t be wrong, for so long I’ve been waiting for you can’t be wrong, can you?/sarah – I’ve been feeling this way for a while, but I never could say it to you could never be mine, but I can’t say goodbye to you/’cause I’ve been so lonely, self-important, like I live for dying/I’ve been so lonely and I don’t want you to see me crying/oh you can’t be wrong, for so long I’ve been waiting for you can’t be wrong, can you?/you can’t be wrong, for so long I’ve been waiting for you can’t be wrong, can you?

simple me (kennedy)
longing to know you – to feel the things you feel/if I could just get inside I’d know just what to steal/well I can see it’s all you’re after/you’re concealing everything around simple me, left pulling those faces again/I was cracking up in her fireplace/book of matches to read profound/watching letters go up in holy smokes to a whiny but gorgeous sound – to a whiny but gorgeous/as time passes over I dream you’re not ashamed/your closet contains my soft bones without a frame/well I can see it’s all you’re after/you’re concealing everything around simple me, left pulling those faces again/it’s been my last will and testimony that you should have what is left of me - for your mantle, your car, or a new trophy – it’s the least thing that I can be/it’s the least thing that I can be/remind me to tell you how fun it’s really been to eat, sleep, and drink you, and then throwing up again – throwing up/well I can see it’s all you’re after/you’re concealing everything around simple me, left pulling those faces again/well, now I can see it’s all you’re after/you’re concealing everything around simple me, left pulling those faces again

got away (chow/connor/kennedy/kristich)
I gotta believe I gotta believe in something/If I’m to receive if I’m to assume my rightful place/I gotta be quick never a dulling moment I’m getting sick/and tired of all this waiting/I would’ve loved you if you could’ve stayed true we should’ve saved you/I gotta relax too much contemplation a planned attack/ready to take my final stance I gotta be brave I don’t need these crutches/if I’m to save if I’m gonna save you from you/I would’ve loved you if you could’ve stayed true we should’ve saved you/I would’ve picked you if you could’ve followed through we should’ve made you/I was the one that got away I was the one that got away there’s really/nothing left to say I was the one that got away/I would’ve picked you this one got away too/I would’ve loved you if you could’ve followed through we should’ve made you.../I would’ve loved you if you could’ve stayed true we should’ve saved you/I would’ve picked you if you could’ve followed through we should’ve made you/This one got away too!

easy for you (kennedy/yanek)
the silence is only broken by the clock up on the wall, and after what’s been spoken, I keep wondering if you’ll ever call/all this time between us – may it fall upon the floor/put your arms around them, wanting more/it was easy for you to say/your words always come out the right way/it was easy for me to see there’s not a bigger fool than me/there were times I was sure I thought you were the cure for me/I couldn’t see any other way, but it was easy for you to say/your mother has often spoken of a time that’s sure to come when your poor heart’s been broken, and you’re stumbling through the hall/don’ you ever wander – open windows open doors to the wrong impression of the world/it was easy for you to say/your words always come out the right way/it was easy for me to see there’s not a bigger fool than me/there were times I was sure I thought you were the cure for me/I couldn’t see any other way, but it was easy for you to say/it was easy for you to say

higher than (connor/kennedy/kristich)
It weighs me down she lays me down it takes my time she makes the time/I am higher than all the rest I am higher than all of them/it makes me right it makes her better it takes all night she takes all night/I am higher than all the rest I am higher than all of them/I can’t stop wishing for it I can’t stop wanting her I’ll stand and wait forever/she makes me right she makes me better we’ve got all night we’ve got all night/I am higher than all the rest I am higher than/I am higher than all the rest I am higher than all of them.

takes too long (chow/connor/kennedy/kristich)
she’d been falling for days and was halfway to crazy when she tried to smile/everytime she’d begin the confusion would win and then she’d start to dial the phone again/is no one home?/it takes too long/it’s takes too long/having been there before and been angry and sore from it, she swallows hard ‘cause forever seems real but it’s losing appeal as it enters the yard/calm down – the answers come around/it takes too long/it’s much too long/it takes too long/and nobody asks, “is anything new?” (there isn’t anything new – will there ever be something new?)/she’s just counting down the days/hours, minutes, seconds away – and she’s waiting for you (she’s waiting for you – will there ever be something new?)/she walks softly through the room/gotta find a reason to feel, or just something to do (there isn’t anything . . .)/and she’s hoping it can happen soon/it takes too long/it’s much too long/it takes too long/it takes too long

austin (connor)
she’s pulling my brain outta my head/she thinks it’s a game – I wish I were dead/she’s drawing a line down in the sand/she’s taking it all – all that she can/it’s too cold in boston, I’m moving to austin/too cold in boston and I’m on a plane/too cold in boston, I’m moving to austin/I think that we lost him – it’s always a shame/it’s always a shame/it’s always a shame/she’s living it up and I’m rotting away/she’s selling the farm for a roll in the hay/she’s towing the line – I thought it would break/she’s on to her third – how much more can she take?/it’s too cold in boston, I’m moving to austin/too cold in boston and I’m on a plane/too cold in boston, I’m moving to austin/I think that we lost him – it’s always a shame/It’s always a shame/it’s always a shame/it’s always a shame/it’s always a shame/it’s always a shame/It’s too cold in boston, I’m moving to austin/too cold in boston and I’m on a plane/too cold in boston, I’m moving to austin/I think that we lost him – it’s always a shame/too cold in boston/moving to austin

breaking down (connor/kennedy/wehler)
make it go away/shield me from the . . . she’ll be from the place we’re going, and she’ll be knowing which way to go/it seems to me that we are breaking down again, have lost our only friend, and suddenly the end – it comes tomorrow/she takes me away above the skyline and through the sunshine/she is amazing, but she is fading into the night/it seems to me that we are breaking down again, have lost our only friend, and suddenly the end is filled with sorrow/we are breaking down again, have lost our only friend, and suddenly the end – it comes tomorrow/we are breaking down again, have lost our only friend, and suddenly the end is filled with sorrow

co-star (chow/connor/kennedy/kristich)
try not to fade out too fast, but still I go slowly and in another light year, what will we be?/are we . . . are we/I’m just a co-star in your made-up show demoted to a reoccurring role/and am I in your listings?/I’m paging through slowly/and did you try to call me while I was out?/call me . . . call me/I’m just a co-star in your made-up show demoted to a reoccurring role and as the season ends I fade away to spin off and I’m cancelled in one day/can you see me?/am I even in this shot at all?/you’re the star attraction/I’m the headshot falling off your wall/just tell me am I in the credits or on the floor?/cut me . . . cut me . . . cut me cut me cut me cut

all fired up (chow/connor/kennedy/silver/epperson)
‘love boat’ material with an all-star cast/low-budget feature – let the credits roll at last, and I’m all fired up, and johnson’s in the clutch/come down – too sensitive to touch/here come the batboy with his thumbnail sketch/she’s on the backporch in her favorite summer dress, but she’s never been the kind of girl you try to second-guess, and she’s all fired up/she’s got us in her clutch/come down – too sensitive to touch/all fired up – come down/oh she looks so pretty with her hollywood friends/she’s glowing, but she doesn’t realize that the fear that’s in her eyes is showing . . . showing/she’s never been the kind of girl who likes to clean the sheets, and she’s all fired up/she’s got us in her clutch/come down – too sensitive to touch/all fired up – come down/ a witch without a doubt

bad time (kennedy)
buy a ticket for a movie/it’s the one you’ve waited to see/all the lights inside – they burn for you/quiet now and listen to the dialogue is twisting and our hero isn’t happy anymore/I’m having a bad time and you’re not listening/I’m having a bad time – are you having it with me?/will our hero take a stand, or does he bow to upper hands, and do I get a refill on my drink?/it doesn’t matter anyway ‘cause it’s not real, and I can think of many ways to spend six dollars now/I’m having a bad time and you’re not listening/I’m having a bad time – are you having it with me?/the plots gone all wrong and the script is too long and I can’t stand to sit here this way/I’m giving all for nothing ‘cause I’m reaching out for anything – I’m begging you to keep the houselights on/I’m having a bad time and you’re not listening/I’m having a bad time – are you having it with me?

over now (chow/connor/kennedy/kristich/wehler)
she comes to me, she tells me all she is feeling/ties a streamer in her hair as she speaks/throws her arms around my empty shell of nothing/doesn’t see she’s holding clouds in her hands/with conviction she is waiting/the addiction is fading/time to call it over now/she’s out of my blood, out of my veins/truth this day will not allow to fall into the hands of someone/why not call it over now?/I guess we’ll call it over now/she leaves me cold and longing for a different feeling/a simple way, but I’ve come down without her now/running through my veins without any meaning/she’s a pretty piece of poison to me now/no excuses, no debating/she won’t leave me – she’ll keep waiting/time to call it over now/she’s out of my blood, out of my veins/truth this day will not allow to fall into the hands of someone/why not call it over now?/I guess we’ll call it over now/she comes to me, she tells me all she is feeling/hypnotize me with the words she repeats/am I standing all alone with my freedom?/nothing but a fleeting thought in her sleep/I can’t stand it when I’m with her/small and stupid . . . god, I miss her/time to call it over now/she’s out of my blood, out of my mind/truth this day will not allow to fall into the hands of someone/why not call it over now?/I guess we’ll call it over now

black cat (connor/kennedy)
I wasn’t strong for too long when it came dreaming yeah/it wasn’t right over night as I fell under yeah/cross my path squeezing past down the hall yeah/yeah yeah yeah...

well enough (chow/connor/kennedy)
I’m thinking out of tune/it’s ruining my mood/somehow suspecting you – a feeling on the inside, and I’m feeling that if you’re thinking of leaving me behind, don’t be thinking it’s just a waste of time/I know you’re thinking I’m out of my mind/I’m thinking of leaving you alone/I overslept today – I tried to make it last, but you were in my way/I’m slipping through these cracks, and I’m feeling it/’cause if you’re thinking of leaving me behind, best not be thinking it’s just a waste of time/I know you’re thinking I’m out of my mind/I’m thinking of leaving you alone/hang from this noose before me now/jump off this cliff for me, pal/I would not ask you for this/I will not ask forgiveness/I’m leaving well enough alone/my head and body ache from carrying your weight, so what’s it gonna take to leave you far behind me?/’cause I’m feeling good, and if you’re thinking of leaving me behind, don’t be thinking it’s just a waste of time/I know you’re thinking I’m out of my mind/I’m thinking of leaving you alone/hang from this noose before me now/jump off this cliff for me, pal/I would not ask you for this/I will not ask forgiveness/I’m leaving well enough alone
