Argyle 02:42
I know I'm not a bad guy When I try to do what's right Everyone who comes to me don't understand or see my plight Everything I've ever done All the plans I've had in sight Always missed and gone wrong in a way Until I gave up and said alright, alright, alright, Let me alone cause no one wants to be Hanging around with someone messing up like me I guess my way isn't good enough When I try I just keep on wrecking stuff It seems everybody knows but me How to go what to do and where to be Everywhere I go they all talk the same They don't even have to try They make me feel so lame, so lame, so lame Friends and jobs have come and gone No matter what I do it goes on and on I wonder if you sometimes feel this way And do you lay awake at the end of the day When I lose Every time I win, cause No one will ever be Messing up stuff and doing things wrong Quite like me No one will ever be like me No one will ever be like me

Gone 04:20
I used to have home With a room and be A porch and a driveway With a big garage But I traded it in I kept some faith And laid my head down every night And it seems so far awy Remember me now 'cause things Always change 5 Long years has gone I've done some time Sleeping where I fall I know I'll never be the same I learned somethings About the places I saw I learned something about myself I guess it came the hard way Now I know what counts I've got one prayer It's in your confidence I know all the places I don't want to be everyone's Gone there'e no one just me Remember me now 'cause things Always change 5 Long years has gone I've done some time Sleeping where I fall I know I'll never be the same Remember me next time I go away For the first time I wanna stay I can count one hand here today The only thing that matters to me Anyway and it seems so far away Remember me now 'cause things Always change Five long years has gone I've done some time Sleeping where I fall I know I'll never be the same

Late Bloomer 02:53
I saw you walking past me just the other day Another heartbeat with thoughts of yesterday You looked the same, years are only time I still wonder why our hearts could never rhyme You stood beside me, you didn't recognize me Funny how things never change When you walked on by a memory surprised me Smoking cigarettes, your girlfriends by the pool Your smell I could not forget, that's as close as I could get You were so Fucking cool I'm no good, you're no better Wouldn't we be perfect together? I'm no good, you're no better Wouldn't we be perfect together? All I wanted was a piece of your heart You left me torn apart Fuck the rest before me and their crimes For your love I'll serve their time I'm no good, you're no better Wouldn't we be perfect together? I'm no good, you're no better Wouldn't we be perfect together? I'm no good, you're no better Wouldn't we be perfect together? I'm no good, you're no better Wouldn't we be perfect together? I’m no good, you’re no better I’m no good, you’re no better I’m no good, you’re no better

Simple Man 03:57
I see lives crash like waves on the shore again and again In an endless cycle of join and pain Inside one day your whole life can change innocence torn away Trust gives way to a thicker pain A shield from pain? Or a trap that keeps it all in. They tried to break me down, I had to break away I woke up from that night mare to start another day I want to be a simple man with a little peace of mind Live a simple life, in a place that's kind I see lives crash like waves on the shore again and again. No poetry, no symmetry, nothing left inside of me What happened to that feeling of invincibility? Broken up caught under the load Broken down by the side of the road They tried to break me down I had to break away I woke up from that nightmare to start another day

I don't know what other people say Or what they think is love But I know what it means to me I fall in love so easily And it's hard to let your guard down Something you never wanted to do I give you my love and you turned away I guess I'd be screwed But I'm a hopeless romantic You're just hopeless I'm a hopeless romantic You're just hopeless Beer and wine does me fine But it doesn't always do When i get back up and dust off I always come back to you I'm my own man With my own plan I can't do the things you want me to I'm kinda lazy And i kinda stink But I'll clean myself up for you I'm a hopeless romantic You're just hopeless I'm a hopeless romantic You're just hopeless You're just hopeless You're just hopeless

Hey, where have you gone? You used to be the one That we looked up to Seemed like nothing could break you down How high was your price? Was it worth it? Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway, you're gone Guess you weren't here from the start In the end Its all a question of heart Hey, where have you gone? You used to be the one That we looked up to Seemed like nothing could break you down How high was the price? And was it worth it? Nothing in life is a sure bet anyway, you're gone I guess you were here from the start In the end Its all a question of heart Hey, where did it go? Everything we fought for And everything it meant, Maybe we were just naive But I still believe There are only a few things That really belong to make who I am Who I was Who I want to be Who I want to be Hey, where have I gone? I used to be the one Looking for a hero In some far off place Blindly ever forward Never knowing all along The truth was right here in my own song

You have this certain something You're my blues and my swing No exaggeration You're the greatest compilation You are disintegration My girl, my temptation You're my rock steady beat Maybelline in the drivers seat You're the songs that bring a tear Embrace the love, embrace the fear Don't run to search for your heart Love will tear us apart You inspire devotion every emotion You're my favorite everything You're my favorite everything You're my favorite everything You're my favorite everything You're the reason that I sing You're my favorite everything You're the reason that I sing You're my favorite everything No I won't waste my time trying to find Another reason to love time after time You're my favorite everything You're my favorite everything You're my favorite everything You're my favorite everything

Sitting here drinking again... Thinking back on how simple it used to be. Can it ever be that way again? I'm drinking this one to my friends. Looks like they'll be here till the end. Till the bitter end. What are dreams for, anyway, Without the guts to live your life that way? We are the highway kings. Chasing our destinies. Cruising through a timezone As the world stands still. Harvest moon in a desert sky. Making good time as we pass it by. Wherever this road takes us, it was meant to be. We're already home. What are dreams for, anyway, Without the guts to live your life that way? What are songs for, anyway, Without the guts to live your life that way? Learned to let go Of the things we can't control. Left em behind and followed rock and roll. We found a new way of life. Forever till the end of time. But never getting old.

Some of us wanna be soldiers Fighting for a cause in a faraway land Some of us wanna stay home Fighting the good fight, doing the best we can What a time to be alive These are days that could kill us all We decide to do or die Find a reason to save our souls What a time to be alive It's alright in a world on fire Some people wanna be poets Painting pictures with words and rhymes Some of us just don't know it Living day to day, touching the divine What a time to walk alive These are days that could kill us all We decide to do or die Find a reason to save our souls What a time to be alive What a time to be alive It's alright in a world on fire It's alright in a world on fire

Say Anything 01:57
I wanna make you know I can do everything But I don't ever show you how I really am I wish I could say I have no regrets I wanted too much from you I don't wanna be this way I kick myself I wish I could say I have no regrets today But I’m so nervous that I lose my cool Every time I pick up the phone and try to call you Standing out in the freezing cold until I’m numb Wondering why I’m always acting so dumb I don't wanna be this way I kick myself I wish I could say That I have no regrets today Things just happened to turn out this way I can't say I have no regrets today Things just happened to turn out this way I can't say I have no regrets today

Oh, you say you're lonely Pulled away by the tide and lost at sea All you sense is something So heavy that you can't breathe You can't breathe You can't see You can't see Let me take you to a place where the sun warms your face And the sound of the waves takes you away And the ghosts on the boardwalk keep you company Where the city meets the sea Where the city meets the sea Oh, you say you're empty Stripped away by the pain of broken dreams All of these emotions Clouding up your eyes 'til you can't see You can't see You can't breathe You can't see Let me take you to a place where the sun warms your face And the sound of the waves takes you away And the ghosts on the boardwalk keep you company Where the city meets the sea Where the city meets the sea Carry nothing you don't need The wind is there to guide your feet You're in good company Oh, you say you're lonely Let me take you to a place where the sun warms your face And the sound of the waves takes you away And the ghosts on the boardwalk keep you company Where the city meets the sea Where the city meets the sea
