The patio The flowers made of concrete Gazebo Memorial You saw me Once around the town square Then on I kissed you at the park Our friends Cheered us on The cordless phone In the back yard Exploring the tone Of your voice Once we're on the roof We can be At all of the places That we can see I held your hand for just one night In your ford fiesta It felt right Once around the town square Then on We flew over the park Our friends cheered us on
2.
In a heart that pays For crimes over and over In a single day I traded one love for another My hair turned gray The old lullabies Nostalgic and wise A breeze from outside I follow the light I'm taking your hand From past to present Young love demands Complete carelessness Oh, I remember In a single day I can't please one soul or the other Either too quiet or outspoken Either too proud or too broken My hair turns gray

I’d be dead if I didn’t have you You suffered for such a long time You don’t have to anymore I’ve got some things I should let go of for sure I think it’s time we both found a cure I’d be dead if I didn’t have you
4.
Some days you aimed high Some you just couldn't try Some days were golden Sunday morning Homeless church in the park I watched you joined them And you could be great Your father’s records Gave you hope for a while But you're just maintaining Then on some days You see the sun hit the sky When it’s raining And you could be great All the songs you learned how to play You still play them by heart I wonder what your old self would say If you could see you know The past is a record A silent case on the shelf Don't always notice When the mood strikes You pick one out and it plays And it’s golden And you could be great
5.
Leave me alone Memories that glow Leave me alone I wanna go To places unknown Pills and alcohol That’s why You ask the reason for piece of mind One day you’ve got the will, the fight Some days there’s no place a heart can hide Leave me alone Memories that glow I wanna grow To places places unknown I wanna grow Pills and alcohol They drive Drive me out of my mind One day you got the will, the drive Some days there’s no peace A brain can provide Leave me alone I wanna go Leave me alone I wanna go To places unknown Leave me alone I wanna grow Leave me alone Memories that glow Memories that glow

I hit the water in such a way that took my breath I saw you stand above me our eyes met I never did learn to dive like you did But I tried all summer long You waited so patiently For what you hoped would come Maybe we’ll change Never knowing how long it’ll take The radio still plays Never sure what it’s trying to say Maybe I’ll know someday You bought 14 tapes just to find one song A song about divorce and moving on You never did Find that song But you tried all summer long You waited next to the radio For what was to come Maybe we’ll change Never knowing How long it’ll take The radio still plays I didn’t know What you were trying to say Maybe I’ll know someday
7.
You and me Driving cross country 65 to lake shore drive The sun The earth In our skin That’s when things got good again Oh baby I don’t know I feel like I can do anything Oh baby make it so No one will care When we tell them where When or how we’ve been We got away From the day to day We’ve got the present tense That’s when things get good again Oh baby I don’t know I feel like I can do anything Oh baby make it so

Kathleen Kathleen Kathleen Our time on this earth is so brief A house a cat, a dog and me I can’t offer you anymore money But we’ll vacation in our dreams I’ll warm you While you sleep Kathleen Kathleen Kathleen Kathleen I love you That’s all I mean I drink too much My mind’s unclean But i’ll shower When it occurs to me Kathleen I woke and held you as you slept I watched the sun I felt your breath And when we reach our final rest Side by side through life and death Our spirit spread through earth and air Wherever you go Well I’ll be there Kathleen

I look into the face of my reflection I see the lines on my face Will never lesson Do I have any choice but to just simply move on If the past has it’s place what do I see in the mirror? How long How long Will this go on The past wants to haunt The present wants to move on I look into the face of my depression I call it out in the street Teach it a lesson Hey doctor is it OK if I just simply move on? Enough time spent on the past for your satisfaction How long How long Will this go on The past wants to haunt The present wants to move on How long How long Will the past have a hold on My present state to learn from Mistakes so the future is less unknown

I loved you under festival lights We were so High You and I Love had never been made real to me We took all of the ecstasy Our eyes Could see Open wide At the Flaming Lips stage design There is a part of me Tonight in a dream It isn’t where My head wants to be There is a part of me Tonight in a dream It’s no longer mine And never again will be The bartender didn’t mind That your ID Was fake Same as mine Friends had never been made real to me I expected too many things Things I could not see I had no right To assume you'd fill the void inside There is a part of me Tonight in a dream It isn’t where My head wants to be There is a part of me Tonight in a dream It’s no longer mine And never again will be Flying through space and time All our faults Aside There is a line And now we've ended up on opposite sides I don’t feel any shame to say That I miss You today Why can’t it be A celebration worth remembering? There is a part of me Tonight in a dream It isn’t where My head wants to be There is a part of me Tonight in a dream It’s no longer mine And never again will be
