10th Grade Love

Tried to find your face
A thousand pictures flipped
But yours just ran away
Something in the air
It lacks a special touch
A smile that's left wide open
Sit down next to Russ
It's OK

Laughed it over
Thought about it for a little while
Can't you throw me
Outside
If I stepped over
All these things that you didn't like
Keep them all under light

Will you rise above
My 10th grade love?

Don't know how to fake
I'm kinda stupid 'bout you, guess you can't relate
One thing is clear
You've been lost in me
For such a long time now
I'll get some room to breathe
If that's ok

Having five stars
Hanging down over top of those
Dark brown earth shoes
I like
Waiting for you
At the place with a cigarette
Stamped all over your lies

Will you rise above
My 10th grade love?

Will you rise above
My 10th grade love?

In Your Way

What I heard yesterday
Does not disturb me now
It's nothing much to speak of, much less say
There's something wrong, I know it

What I saw yesterday
Set my teeth on edge
What I could buy before was no more
Than a reason ahead

What would you like to say?
It's all been done, it's all been done
You'll find nothing in your way
It's all been done, it's all been done

What I knew yesterday
Seemed enough at the time
Should've guessed the way you left and didn't mind
That I meant to hurt you

Trinity Bellwoods

It started out in a half meet, have none
To find a place where you don't know someone
And you say something kind but you don't say why
And the best you can find is a well-placed lie

It's fitting this had to be so twisted
You got there late and I guess you missed it
And you tried and you lied but your intent shows
And I come to rely on a young man's hopes

Secrets ride through the air
Tempting us like a dare
It's not unlike for the sake of night today
You might escape as to somehow find a way
We're not unlike in the words we'd like to say

It all comes down to some patience and trust
Trinity Bellwoods all around us
And I cried and I tried to get on your side
And you tried and you cried 'cause you can't decide

People come to their own conclusions
We enter this under no illusions
And we wait for the fate that we can't let die
Adn we say that it's late but they still rely

Secrets move through the air
Catches us unaware
It's not unlike for the sake of today
You might escape as to somehow find a way
We're not alike in the words we'd like to say

Dress

Going crazy
Can't keep things in my head
Spinning around in front of me
A figure of speech coming back to haunt me now

Feelings how they flinch even after so long
Don't know why you talk to me
I'm not as wise as I wish I'd be
Saw me once in a dress
Sleeping pills, all the rest
Now you speak with some distress

And I'd like to say you speak young and bolder
And I will try my best to fail
You may not be wise and I may not be older

All the things you said
I thought you said
We're nothing more to bother now
It's all too late
Let's agree to disagree
Closer to the feelings all my men would show you
don't know why you talk to me
I'm not as wise as I wish I'd be

Saw me once in a dress
Sleeping pills, all the rest
Now you speak with some distress

And I can't believe you asked that
Oh I can't believe you asked that
Oh I can't believe you denied that

Cubicle

The news absonded all
Past dually marked
Of what you wanted done
January's been long
He walked around his stuff
As she's been so
The manager speaks of him
Twenty five years down

There's nothing there at all
The biggest things are always small
It doesn't matter at all

The emptiness on his face
Now you've put wrong
The simple moments of
Tempering the night

Stand around my seething
On what's involved
From arguments left out
Can't you hear the call?

Red

Saw you looking for a light
Face painted cigarette white
You asked the cleanest boy you found
You couldn't see me turned around
His fingers stretched across your empty gaze
That I just can't escape

As the red fades from your wrinkled dress
A picture of the people you've impressed
Hangs on a wall around here
Vision starts to crawl when I'm near
And the evening waits
While you get caught up to your own mistakes
Made up different lines
I wouldn't wanna keep in my mind

I wondered why you'd come around
Remembering your little girl frown
Your answers kept the crowd at bay
With compliments unwilling to pay
I had some things I'd like to say to you
But they just can't be true

Soaker

I'm just trying not to listen
I've been hanging around
All the things that you mentioned
Kinda sink in the ground

There's a kind of emotion
That describes how I feel
If you've been paying attention
It's not such a big deal

I like your style, I don't know how
The only thing that I need now

I'm just trying not to listen
I've been hanging around
All the things that you've mentioned
Kinda sink in the ground

I like your style, I don't know how
The only thing that I need now
I like your style, I don't know how
The only thing that I need now

Deception Made Simple

Thought I'd made you cry
Thought the things you'd never try were gone
It's quite a show you've made
Should never have stayed so long
If you can't help me now
I'm reassured but that's not how it's done
Try again in a while
I know that I'll be the one

Let me take your hand
And try to let me understand
Things I never saw before
Were yours alot longer time ago
And if there's one thing
I'd like to know, be sure to bring
The thoughts I've left alone with you
Have all gone off with nothing to do

If you asked before
I probably told you something more the same
It's not to be believed
I treat it all like a game
If I had half the time
For twice the man, the speed, I'll find a way
To stay awake 'til dawn
And later on in the day

Pilot Light

You can't find me
You can't find me again
You can't drive me
You can't drive me again

Shot down again if it's easier to be alive
Kept on the mend you expected these things to arrive
I can't pretend that there's nothing I don't like
I can't pretend

You can't hurt me
You can't hurt me again
You can't kill me
You can't kill me again

If you listen to me
I'll just drag you down
I'm going nowhere again

Don't keep hanging around
Don't keep hanging around

Hint

When these things have all been broken
You can wait for me
Everything you've ever spoken
Complimentary

Continue with deceptive lies
And wrapped around your thin disguise
Ways to let you know
Ways to let you know

Everything we've ever started
You can come and go
Laying loveless, disregarded
I don't wanna know
Complaining that you'll lose your mind
And break me when you find the time
Ways to let you know
Ways to let you know

Time
What you always said before was mine
Tell me more about the days in rhyme
