      ~*~Inside Wants Out~*~
 
1. Back to you

Back to you

It always comes around

Back to you

I tried to forget you

I tried to stay away

But its too late

Over you

Im never over

Over you

Theres something about you

Its just the way you move

The way you move me

Yah I'm so good at forgetting

And I quit ever game I played

But forgive me love

I can't turn and walk away

Back to you

It always comes around

Back to you

I walk with your shadow

I'm sleeping in my bed

With your silhouette

Yah I should have smiled in that picture

If it's the last that I'll see of you

It's the least that you

Could not do

OooooOoooo

Leave the light on

I'll never give up on you

Leave the light on

For me too

For me too

For me too

Yah

Back to me

I know that it comes

Back to me

Doesn't it scare you

Your will is not as strong

As it used to be

2. No Such Thing
 

Welcome to the real world she said to me

Condescendingly

Take a seat

Take your life

Plot it out in black and white

Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings

And the drama queens

I'd like to think the best of me

Is still hiding up my sleeve

They love to tell you stay inside the lines

But somethings better on the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school

I wanna scream at the top of my lungs

I just found out there's no such thing as the real world

Just a lie you've got to rise above

So the good boys and girls take the so called right track

Faded white hat grabbing credits

Maybe transfers

They read all the books but they can't find the answers

And all of our parents

They're getting older

I wondered if they've wished for anything better

While in their memories tiny tragedies

They love to tell you stay inside the lines

But something's better

On thee other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school

I wanna scream at the top of my lungs

I just found out there's no such thing as the real world

Just a lie you got to rise above

I am invincible

I am invincible

I am invincible as long as I'm alive

I wanna run through the halls of my high school

I wanna scream at the top of my lungs

I just found out there's no such thing as the real world

Just a lie you've got to rise above

I just can't wait for my ten year reunion

I'm gonna bust down the double doors

And when I stand on these tables before you

You will know what all this time was for

3. My Stupid Mouth

 

My stupid mouth

Has got me in trouble

I said too much again

To a date over dinner yesterday

And I could see

She was offended

She said well anyway

Just dying for a subject change

Oh another social casualty

Score one more for me

How could I forget

Mama said think before speaking

No filter in my head

Oh what's a boy to do

I guess he better find one

Soon

We bit our lips

She looked out the window

Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper

I played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker

And I could see clearly

An indelible line was drawn

Between what was good

What just slipped out

And what went wrong

Oh the way she feels about me has changed

Thanks for playing try again

How could I forget

Mama said think before speaking

No filter in my head

Oh what's a boy to do

I guess he better find one

I'm never speaking up again

It only hurts me

I'd rather be a mystery

Than she desert me

Oh I'm never speaking up again

Starting now

Starting now

One more thing

Why is it my fault

So maybe I try too hard

But it's all because of this desire

Just wanna be liked

Just wanna be funny

Looks like the jokes on me

So call me captain backfire

Oh another social casualty

Score one more for me

How could I forget

Mama said think before speaking

No filter in my head

Oh what's a boy to do

I guess he better find one

I'm never speaking up again

It only hurts me

I'd rather be a mystery

Than she desert me

Oh I'm never speaking up again

I'm never speaking up again

I'm never speaking up again

Starting now

Starting now

4. Neon

 

When sky blue gets dark enough

To see the colors

The city lights

A trail of ruby red and diamond white

Hits her like a sunrise

She comes and goes and comes and goes

Like no one can

Tonight she's out to loose herself

And find a high on peachtree street

Mixed drinks to techno beats it's always

Heavy into everything

She comes and goes and comes and goes

Like no one can

She comes and goes and no one knows

She's slipping through my hands

She's always buzzing just like

Neon neon

Neon neon

Who knows how long how long how long

She can go before she burns away

I can't be her angel now

You know it's not my place to hold her down

And it's hard for me to take a stand

When I would take her anyway I can

She comes and she goes

Like no one can

She comes and she goes

She's slipping through my hands

She's always buzzing just like

Neon neon

Neon neon

Who knows how long how long how long

She can go before she burns away

Away

Uh huh

She comes and she goes

Like no one can

She comes and she goes

She's slipping through my hands

She's always buzzing just like

Neon neon

Neon neon

Who knows how long how long how long

She can go before she burns away

5. Victoria

Don't know why

Victoria came by

But I could see by the look in her eyes

Victoria been driving round the town for awhile

Playing with the thought of leaving

Don't know why

Victoria just smiled

Mentioned something about how you were right

Must have been hard to see through the tears she was hidin

She said I might not be seeing him soon

Got a few things I've been waiting to do

Hey

Victoria came by

Victoria came by tonight

Hey

Victoria came by

She says to say goodbye

Looked outside

At the car in the drive

And the suitcase on the back seat inside

She had it so she can't look out behind at the road

She said I might not be seeing him soon

Got a few things I've been waiting to do

Hey

Victoria came by

Victoria came by tonight

Hey

Victoria came by

She says to say goodbye

Don't look back

She seemed all right

You might be asking where is Victoria tonight

Somewhere out on the highway I'm sure that she's fine

 

6. Love Soon

 

I know you've been sworn

I read your complaint

You're needing someone older

And though I've been warned to live day by day

There's something taking over

Did you expect to kiss me one time

While looking at me with the same eyes ever again

So come on and face it

So come on and face it

It's time that we say it

You can cross the line whenever you want to

I'm calling it love soon

Close your mind and waste some time if you have to

I'm calling it love soon

It's not about you now

It's what we are

Your mother complains that you need a man

You haven't mentioned me yet

And all of your friends don't know who I am

I've been your best kept secret

I understand I wasn't part of the plan

A dollar short a minute early

But I am your man

So come on and face it

So come on and face it

Its time that we say it

You can cross the line whenever you want to

I'm calling it love soon

Close your mind and waste some time if you have to

I'm calling it love soon

It's not about you now

It's what we are

Its what we are

Let's bypass the bullshit and move on because

The minute hand moves faster than you think it does

And by no fault of yours and by no fault of mine

The bottom line is lying in the bed that we've been playing in tonight

Weve playing in tonight

Im calling it love soon

Im calling it love soon

You can cross the line whenever you want to

I'm calling it love soon

Close your mind and waste some time if you have to

I'm calling it love soon

It's not about you now

It's what we are

 

7. Comfortable

 

I just remembered that time at the market

Snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart

And rode down

Isle 5

You looked behind you to smile back at me

Crashed into a rack full of magazines

They asked us

If we could leave

Can't remember what went wrong last september

Though I'm sure you'd remind me if you had to

Our love was

Comfortable and

So broken in

I sleep with this new girl I'm still getting used to

My friends all approve say she's gonna be good for you

They throw me

High fives

She says the bible is all that she reads

And prefers that I not use profanity

Your mouth was

So dirty

Life of the party

And she swears that she's artsy

But you could distinguish

Miles from Coltrane

Our love was

Comfortable and

So broken in

She's perfect

So flawless

Or so they say ay ay ay

Say ay ay ay

She thinks I can't see the smile that she's fakin'

And poses for pictures that are being taken

I loved you

Grey sweat pants

No makeup

So perfect

Our love was

Comfortable and

So broken in

She's perfect

So flawless

I'm not impressed

I want you back

 

8. Quiet (Fear)

Midnight

Lock all the doors

And turn out the lights

Feels like the end of the world

This sunday night

There's not a sound

Outside the snow's coming down

And somehow I can't seem to find

The quiet inside my mind

Three-o-two

The space in this room

Has turned on me

And all my fears have cornered me here

Me and my TV screen

The volume's down

Blue lights are dancing around

And still

I can't seem to find

The quiet inside my mind

Du dup du dup hu uh

Daylight is climbing the walls

Cars start and feet walk the halls

The world awakes and now I am safe

At least by the light of day

At least by the light of day
