Lyrics

So Proud of You

She’s out there in an ordinary life
Don’t need me
She’s got a special place saved in her heart
Don’t want me

I’m gonna end up burning out too soon
The way you call me out every night
I’m gonna end up killing yourself soon
All those troubles are such a warning now

I took from her everything she had
I’m still empty
Never been so proud of anyone
She left me.

I’m gonna end up burning out too soon
The way you call me out every night
I’m gonna end up killing yourself soon
All those troubles are such a warning now.

She’s out there in an ordinary life
Don’t need me
She’s got a special place saved in her heart
Don’t want me, Don’t want me


Power

(thank you Trevor for the fix)

So take me out and light me up
And baby doesn’t care
I had some pretty things in mind
But those shoes she won’t wear

Yes I’ll take that power
And show you what I felt
I might use up your precious time
But I don’t touch nothing else

And sometimes I don’t get to sleep
I’m thinking we should talk
Your floating cursive are writing verses
of words I thought I’d lost

Yes I take that power
And show you what I felt
I might use up your precious time
But I don’t touch nothing else

So take me out and light me up
And baby doesn’t care
I had some pretty things in mind
But those shoes you won’t wear

So yes I’ll take that power
And show you what I felt
I might use up your precious time
But I don’t touch nothing else

Yes I take that power
To show you what I felt
I might use up your precious time
But I don’t touch nothing else

 

Coliseum

In the coliseum’s the gentlemen
And its neverending mumbling and soveriegnty
Classical outspoken sex noise
From the fifth floor apartment

Go down the stairs and disappear
Sometimes for days, where we have talked all night
You may say there’s nothing in the desert
I would simply reply that “there’s nothing anywhere”

You act like you’re on an airplane in the sky
Nothing is on your mind
If I were you I’d wash it away
Just like everything is fine
And life seems so simple, wash it down
Make it go away, make it go away

Read a good book, cover to cover
But every little gimmick is getting old now
Do you have the patience to watch all the clowns
Doing the same old tricks?
Do you want to see me do my tricks?
Would it make you laugh or remember today?
Can you even remember a day when everything was perfect
When we could laugh?

You act like you’re on an airplane in the sky
Nothing is on your mind
If I were you i’d wash it away
Just like everything is fine
And you can’t sleep it off this time
It’s gonna be there when you wake up tomorrow
Don’t you wish you can make it go away?
It’s still gonna be there tomorrow?

And life seems so simple
Perfect all the time
And life seems so simple
I wish I was you, sometimes

So don’t go to the show
Don’t go to the show, tonight
Just stay here, stay here
Don’t go to the show, tonight

 

Carry You

When I know I’m alone
I say your name slowly
And I know I’m alone
But I carry you
And I choose my words careful
‘Cause you’re not my anything
Stay in my place
Just carry you

Fall apart
I build you up
I just have my reasons
Fall apart
You build me up
There must be a reason

Would you dream I’m around
If you fall asleep waiting
No you don’t have to answer
But swear I got you with me

Fall apart
I build you up
I just have my reasons
Fall apart
You build me up
There must be a reason

You run away
The east coast in your eyes
Run away
The east coast in your eyes

When I know I’m alone
I say your name slowly
I know I’m alone
But I carry you

Fall apart
I build you up
I just have my reasons
Fall apart
You build me up
There must be a reason

Fall apart
I build you up
I know I have reasons
Fall…
Build me up
There must be a reason


Richmond Again

(special thanks to char!)

There’s nothing for me anywhere
I’ve been wandering
I’ll find some lost part of you
No matter what it takes

I’ve no business being here
but I can’t feel sorry
I only feel the double-cross
You call whispering

There’s nothing for me anywhere
I’ve been wandering
But I’ll find some lost part of you
No matter what it takes


Two Serenades

(adapted from a poem by Thomas Hardy | Malonski went through A LOT of trouble for these (with help from char) So you better enjoy.)

Late on Christmas Eve
In the street alone
Outside a house on the pavement stone
I sang to her, as it’s sung together
How many nights I felt her tether

She would not heed what I melodied
In my soul’s sore need, she would not heed.

As I bent me up there, I voiced and I fingered
Upon the strings long, long I lingered
Only the curtains hid from her
One whom Caprice had bid from her

But she did not come and my heart grew numb
And dull my strum, she did not come

Sick I withdrew,
At love’s grim hue,
Finally she knew, sick I withdrew


No Christmas

(thank you Michelle Rodriguez, as well as bcope for the fixes)

I wonder if your gonna ask me, “Why I lied?”
I wonder if your going to show you’re angry with me
I wonder if I could explain this if I tried
I wonder if I’m gonna know
When you forgive me?
Will you stay with me?

And all of those awful things you said at first
Don’t shout I understand you’re pretending
So punish me, well I’m listening so do your worst
I don’t doubt that your mad but
It can’t be ending
You’re still pretending

So don’t say we’ve reached the end, this can’t be right
For goodness sake you got to know I care about you
Please stay my best friend for one more night
I couldn’t face another day
Alone without you
I care about you
