these days i don't feel at home and i'm missing my soul she took it across the pacific but i'll be just fine no she wasn't the right one to keep me from fading away who will keep us from fading away? another long day california's sun is shining i'm hiding under neon and brick as she's crying "am i gonna be fine?" "cause i don't feel alright" what's to stop me from dying today? who will keep us from fading away? our friends they aren't well there's no safety in hell from the bullets that tear them apart oh, their mothers, they cry saying "tell me a lie" say my baby is coming home soon tell me they will be coming home soon another long day california's sun is shining i'm hiding under neon and brick as she's crying "am i gonna be fine?" "cause i don't feel alright" what's to stop me from dying today? who will keep us from fading away? i've lost my mind again and it's no use to pretend that i'm anywhere near to alright "oh, but the pain never lasts" "and this too, shall pass" she says, "give me your hand, you'll be fine" oh, you know i want more than "just fine" another long day california's sun is shining i'm hiding under neon and brick as she's crying "am i gonna be fine?" "cause i don't feel alright" what's to stop me from dying today? who will keep us from fading away?

i'm sinking so fast and i can't see the sun if i wasn't so weak i'd go swallow that gun the whiskey will do just to soak through my brain this must be the feeling of going insane i try to hold it together with you on that line if you start to ask questions i'll just swear that i'm fine but i am just a car wreck a miserable disaster i'm fighting with the words that won't come the city here is burning the ashes, they are falling and i'm doing anything to feel numb just to feel numb now the panic's burned out i'm lying flat on the foor but the sadness, it lingers 'cause i've been drinking alone you know i can't love you i would just break your heart my walls they don't stand no more honey, i've just fallen apart but i am just a car wreck a miserable disaster i'm fighting with the words that won't come the city here is burning the ashes, they are falling and i'm doing anything to feel numb just to feel numb

there she rolls over in bed and wakes me up too soon but i don't mind one little bit as the sun breaks through the room i'll play all of your favorite songs if you just say you'll stay right here, just stay seoul it looks so far away so foreign and confused i dread the day when my phone rings for you to share the news i'll write down every word you say if you just say you'll stay right here, just stay don't leave me with the postcard trails cause i need everything/cause i need all of you i'm losing sleep in my hotel no matter i sing/no matter what i do well i got lost and you got high foolish ways and tired eyes but you weren't lying, were you babe? when you said you'd break my heart someday now i'm living here all alone and waiting for that unknown but i... been acting funny lately you say that you're confused i'll give you all the time you need cause i know we've both been bruised i'll never wake you from your dreams if you just say you'll stay right here, just stay I'm always up too god damn late i drink myself to sleep i know we were an accident we took that sudden leap but i'll be there when you need me most if you just say you'll stay right here, just stay well i got lost and you got high foolish ways and tired eyes but you weren't lying, were you babe? when you said you'd break my heart someday now i'm living here all alone and waiting for that unknown but i...

i want to thank you for breaking my heart cause all of that waiting was tearing me apart i think about you on the drive home oh honey you're all i need wish i knew what you were thinking when you decided on leaving me it's gonna be a long, lonely road without you girl oh, my love, didn't stand one chance living in your world i can't say that i blame you you know that i can come on strong hope you know that i couldn't help it cause i'd been waiting for you all along i stare up at the night's sky wonder where you are and where you'll be sure as hell, i'm gonna miss you but i'd be a god damn shame if you went missing me It's gonna be a long, lonely road without you girl oh, my love, didn't stand one chance living in your world

she says sing it louder babe i just want to hear your voice looks like the dead-end kids are happy for once i think you might be winning but honey i ain't keeping score even through all of my doubts, i just need her more in between her signs and motions lies a noisy, stirring notion she sings along with all my careful words believing somehow they're not her's she says i want to give you space but wednesday looks so far away baby do you even love me anymore? cheap champagne it clouds her mind oh we've been here a hundred-thousand times i'll be right there with you like i was every time before in between her signs and motions lies a noisy, stirring notion she sings along with all my careful words believing somehow they're not her's with these damn unsteady hands i clear a space for her to land heads falling slow to the pillowcase her heart beats fast chasing mine worried eyes betray her mind it's written all over her face in between her signs and motions lies a noisy, stirring notion she sings along with all my careful words believing somehow they're not her's

the brake lights wash the highway red i get so lost inside my head she's sleeping sound across my arm i'm so afraid of doing her harm thought that i was gonna have to fake it i sure wasn't expecting this but when the sky turns blue again tomorrow i'm so afraid she's gonna go don't get too close do not let me in i will let you down i will let you down the heat, it keeps us up at night sweat down her neck but out of sight sheets and clothes, they're littering the floor i feel my way out through the door i pick my shoes up with my clothes i think i know how this one goes don't you fall in love, don't let her know cause then leaving only hurts that much more don't get too close do not let me in i will let you down i will let you down

when are you coming home? there's nothing else i want more then i said "oh my god, oh my god" "i'm telling you, i can't believe i'm telling you" i'm all yours where we go from here is out of my hands then i said "oh my god, oh my god" "i'm telling you, i can't believe i'm telling you" i'm all yours

i wake up early to the rain you turn over again just open your eyes i want this to be every single day and you won't wonder why there is nothing else like this you are the only one i want you could see all of your light it's the only thing that's keeping me alive i want you to know everything everything you mean to me i am where i want to be for once in my life and i don't feel alone we pass an empty parade it's only you and me i think i'll call this home there is nothing else like this you are the only one i want you could see all of your light it's the only thing that's keeping me alive i want you to know everything everything you mean to me

honey are we just being fools? thinking this world gives a damn about me and you? i'm willing to give it a shot if you are but i know this life can be so hard i've got my guitar and you've got your lens no, it ain't a lot, this we just can't pretend if we stay the course, never let it go we might stand a chance to turn out gold someday we're gonna find out we're all we've got there's just the waiting now it's all about the breakdown honey are we just getting old running straight through winter, bittersweet and cold now the sun stays shining right through our window but i can't help but wondering out loud, just how this goes you swear it over, heart on your sleeve "lover you're the only one for me" got my heart beating, can you hear it loud? i'm still searching for those satellites, lost and found someday we're gonna find out we're all we've got there's just the waiting now it's all about the breakdown
