Someone's stitching up a broken dream West wind's ripping right through the seams From the top of the hill, I can see Someone's stitching up a broken dream We won't just wither in the night Never satisfied, we walk the edge of this divide between us lately Oh, what a time to be alive We'll keep raving on, they won't break us down We were made for these times Times they're looking like they'll never change Rich get richer while we take the blame Same old story, same old game Times they're looking like they'll never change We won't just wither in the night Never satisfied, we walk the edge of this divide between us lately Oh, what a time to be alive We'll keep raving on, they won't break us down We were made for these times We won't just wither in the night Never satisfied, we walk the edge of this divide between us lately Oh, what a time to be alive We'll keep raving on, they won't break us down We were made for these times We were made for these times We were made for these, oh--

Goodbye 03:53
You've been hanging around too long You've gotta go now, you've gotta go I keep hearing that same old song It's time to go now, it's time to go Everybody thinks they know what's right But nobody wants to show up for the fight And you're just another one talking like your God's only child Lean in close and let me tell you what I know You've gotta go now, you've gotta go Don't mistake my kindness for anything more It's time to go now, it's time to go Try as you might, we're nothing alike Don't paint yourself in the same kind of light Nothing comes easy no, not if you do it right Everything doesn't belong to you Just because you want it to You think you've got a right But you couldn't be more wrong You can try to justify all you do But I'm still done with you So goodbye I'm moving right along Don't waste a minute, don't walk, just run You've gotta go now, you've gotta go Nobody here is having any fun It's time to go now, it's time to go Look around here now What do you see? Everybody's got some better place to be While you just carry on blind to rationality Everything doesn't belong to you Just because you want it to You think you've got a right But you couldn't be more wrong You can try to justify all you do But I'm still done with you So goodbye I'm moving right along You've been hanging around too long You've gotta go now, you've gotta go

If I Dreamed 01:12
If I thought you'd come to me, it wouldn't be If I dreamed you'd stay with me, you'd leave If I wanted you to say what you mean You wouldn't let yourself be free, free, free, free

All I wanna do is waste the day with you Wait for the sound of cicadas all around The sun's hanging low on the hillside Twilight is never far behind Fireflies will dance to the song of summer nights Winter's gone away, but He'll be back someday So I'll be the one writing letters to the sun So much depends on love and light The way you're somehow always on my mind Trees gently sway to the song of summer nights Daydream in the shade of all the plans we made Regrets lay like a map, but I'm okay with that The darkness is delicate and wild August always brings me back to life Let's sing along to the song of summer nights

I know you see me Like I'm some kind of answered prayer But baby, believe me I'm no prize and I really don't care There's a bird in the garden He's not singing your name anymore Is it any wonder When I've gone and I've closed the door I've heard it said I've got a careless heart I've been told that I can't be moved It's not my fault if you're gonna fall apart Never been accused of loving you Over and over Another chance to even up the score Looks like the answer Isn't quite what we bargained for I've heard it said I've got a careless heart I've been told that I can't be moved It's not my fault if you're gonna fall apart Never been accused of loving you I can't follow you down Down into that world that you made 'Cause if I do I know that I won't Make it out alive someday Go on with out me You can make this easy on us both Please don't pretend you love me And I will do the same for you, for you I will do the same for you I will do the same for you, for you I've heard it said I've got a careless heart I've been told that I can't be moved It's not my fault if you're gonna fall apart Never been accused of loving you I've heard it said I'm reckless and bold Yeah, that's what I've been told It's not my fault if you fall Never been accused of loving you Never been accused of loving you Never been accused of loving you

This could've been a good thing If I had said the right thing Every time you needed me It could've been wonderful If you have grown to let go Of all the things that aren't in your control I can't say leaving this behind Hasn't crossed my mind a thousand times This could've been a good thing I always learn the hard way I give too much away And nothing is enough to make you stay I always fall right back down From some higher ground To find there's no one left No one around If I could move this mountain, I could see You would be alright, you don't need me I always learn the hard way I have left so many words On the cutting floor And I know that they'll still be there When I close the door Yes, they might be my regrets But I'm keeping them in store This could've been a good thing If loving me was easy But we both know how hard that can be This could have been lovely Like a cooling summer breeze Moving through the spaces in between In my mind we're carefree in the sun And I have dreams of all we could become This could've been a good thing

Baby, Please 04:34
Baby, please I see that look in your eyes Don't make this hard for us both Let me just say goodbye Lover, no I'm not tryin' to be cruel It's just one of those things I'll be honest with you Baby, please I'm just tryin' to do right By the days and the years Looking up at the sky Honey, oh I know nobody's any good At starting over I thought you understood It was good while it lasted Like August And the setting sun You've been moving through my orbit And now it's time to move on
9.
Walk Away 04:28
If you take me for a fool I'm gonna disappoint you I can see right through you And everything you do You've got your eye on the door You don't need me anymore Is this what you wished for? Another goddamn war I've been called worse by better But it really doesn't matter I don't care what you gotta say You're gonna watch me smile and walk away It doesn't matter to me Who you think I should be Backing down sounds easy But it doesn't come free And if you want me to stay This tired line's gotta change Or I'm gonna take the next train Back to some better place I've been called worse by better But it really doesn't matter I don't care what you gotta say You're gonna watch me smile and walk away This conversation's going nowhere My words are not enough for you Maybe you just have more to offer than I do, than I do Looks like the wheels just won't stop I can see them turning in your eyes Did you hear the words I spoke to you Did you bother to hear my side Will you bother to hear my side I've been called worse by better But it really doesn't matter I don't care what you gotta say You're gonna watch me smile You're gonna watch me smile and walk away
