i feel as though i died today dead end streets and shades of gray it's time for you to leave but hey geese in flight so sail away seasons change that's how it goes days turn cold and the north wind blows it's time for you to leave but hey geese in flight so sail away if we knew how to dance, we'd have danced all night maybe that would've made things right my heart's right here but i lost my way geese in flight, so sail away i feel as though i died today dead end streets and shades of gray it's time for you to leave but hey geese in flight so sail away

don't talk to them about me they can't see what's been going on and i've been doing alright i've let my heart and my mind take flight wish you felt the way i felt when you said that there was somebody else goddamn it hurt my heart wake up tangled in my sheets but some nights i just succumb to the weight of my dreams and i hope she knows the way that you used to hold me close i'm sorry i was not enough and please, remember me and the way that we made love and don't forget that i loved you before you broke me apart and you're my worst stranger you've done things I never thought you'd do did you find inside of her the home that i never was to you i lay in bed and i think about my love in someone else's arms i can't forgive you anymore and please, remember me and the way that we made love and don't forget that i loved you before you broke me apart

half-open half-hearted i'm half-broken, half-way home don't call my name i'm half asleep i'm mixing drinks got a cactus that's dying my room, its gone dry again they said you can't kill it but i did with my own two hands we'll lay in bed after sex smoke cigarettes and we'll wear our best white socks and i know that i should go but i liked the way he kissed me goodnight mother she wants me gone but my car won't start and she wants me to take it apart and he's standing by the highway he's saying i can stay but i'm watching a car swerve down the road there's a club for girls and i think of her and her fake fur coat i couldn't love her if i wanted to i've never been in love not the way that kids are and car swerves off the road driver's half-baked, half-haunted by all his mistakes and so i look back at him he tastes like cigarettes we'll have sex in our best white socks and i know that i should go but i liked the way he kissed me goodnight

i said that i'd wait and now i'm standing at the back of your door and i still love you i still love you i said that i'd wait and now i'm standing at the back of your door and i still love you i still love you don't get over my love with her love oh my love don't touch your lips to my neck it stings now, poison kisses you sang broken hearted songs when we were in love i left my sheets on the line too long bloody and stained with you don't tell me i'm in ecstasy i can't see this side of me you slept in her sheets before i washed mine such little time and i gave you all i had young love i learned from my dad what have you done, we were in love and what have you done, i'm moving on i hate what you've done now i'm drinking a bottle of wine and i wish that you weren't doing so fine, fine, fine and i hate when you've done, i thought that you were mine but i guess this is what happens in time i said that i'd wait, but i'm leaving you don't get my time and i still love you but not like i used to

Jane 02:49
black sheep baby tell me stories about what it was like to be you i'm homesick, my heart hurts i left town to see Jane but she's got someone else to her name i get lost when i'm driving have fears that i'm dying if you don't mind, i'd like some of your time come back and see me i'm twenty and lonely and my dad thinks it's all in my mind black sheep baby said it was all for fun but i'm a mess thinking about you i'm burning the coffee the sky looks the same to me even when it's going blood red i get lost when i'm driving have fears that i'm dying if you don't mind i'd like some of your time i'd like some of your time
