Running blind on the beach at night Doing what you can to make me feel alright The stars all burst and dissolve into light I didn't know you when we first met I didn't know you that well I didn't know you, now I know you Now I know you and I wish you well Running blind on the beach at night Doing what you can to make me feel alright The stars all burst and dissolve into light We're running blind on the beach at night The stars all burst and dissolve into light We're running blind on the beach at night

Joy 04:12
Oh Joy, light up another cigarette And I'll join, just to sit in her old perfume Well into those church bells Do they make your head spin into the bottle? Is it bothering you? Hey Na Na I've been dreaming in all the colors from the summer But when I open my eyes All I see is black and white now Man, it's such a bummer Oh Joy, light up another cigarette And I'll join, through the window of your old bedroom And when those lights go out, is it all you think about? And do they follow, are you forever bothered? Oh Joy, light up another cigarette And I'll join, just to sit in her old perfume Well into those church bells Do they make your head spin, into the bottle? Is it bothering you?

You were a mirage when I grew weary But I was dumb, I wasn't seeing clearly You were singing that song The one about cherry cola While I was watching MTV The warm highway air Blowin' through your hair You're smiling when I'm not there And I know you're gonna leave me All alone by the telephone I keep on callin' but nobody's home All alone by the telephone But nothing's happening so I'll hang around And I know you're gonna leave me All alone by the telephone I keep on callin' but nobody's home All alone by the telephone

I could never stay awake My mind was in a different place Because I, I had to tell you I could never stay asleep My mind was on constant repeat Because I, I was feeling selfish The blood was pooling on the ground My eyes adjust and drift around So illogical But when I find the words to say The thoughts they start to drip away And I find, I'm swimming in a tidepool And we're cruising (We're a hundred miles away) And we're doing alright tonight And I feel fine With all these questions in the afterlife Always hoping the world will end No need to take shelter when It really happens And we're cruising (We're a hundred miles away) And we're doing alright tonight And I feel fine With all these questions in the afterlife And we're cruising (We're a hundred miles away) And we're doing alright tonight And I feel fine With all these questions in the afterlife

I was on time You were already Waiting in line In a matching sweater You looked alright I was feeling tethered When your eyes met mine And dropped to my sweater

I hear distant thunder Morning riders rumble To myself, I wonder "Is it coming down?" "Yeah, is it coming now?" It's all around Hey you, tilted crown You're slipping now I see all these people With their heads in steeples Give them a dollar and they'll come on down Yeah come on down It's all around Hey you, silly clown No one's laughing now

Belong Here 03:27
What's good for you is bad for me I'm so tired of all this misery Tell me now, how you found out About that love in the underground I confess when I miss that dress So I turn on the news and I see nothing good I call my dad, 'cuz I miss that man I don't belong here They sing a different song here when you're not around They fly a different flag in this part of town Maybe there is a beast Probably not, I'm thinking it's just me Because I confess, I'll forget this address And its soft glow of the red Exit sign hanging above your head Tempting me symbolically I don't belong here If I've done something wrong, dear, I apologize I'm just so tired of these mirror eyes I don't belong here They sing a different song here when you're not around They fly a different flag in this part of town

We've had some good, we've had some bad Forget the good times you'd never have Getting off the couch wouldn't be so bad We've had some fun but it never lasts Could you just forget about the sunny days, complain about the rain? Lately I've been wondering Is the rain ever gonna pass? Lately I've been wondering Is this friendship gonna last? Lately I've been wondering Is the rain ever gonna pass? Lately I've been wondering A gentle day and some time alone Another line in some song I wrote I'll take a walk, feel invisible Wonder why I'm still miserable, yeah A couple days since I called my mom She says she's happy to hear from me anyway My dad is worried about the dog My sister's going to visit on Sunday Forget about the sunny days, complain about the rain Lately I've been wondering Is the rain ever gonna pass? Lately I've been wondering Is this friendship gonna last? Lately I've been wondering Is the rain ever gonna pass? Lately I've been wondering Couldn't cut it in the California sun Thought I was better than everyone Lately I've been wondering Is the rain ever gonna pass? Lately I've been wondering Is the rain ever gonna pass? Lately I've been wondering Is the rain ever gonna pass? Lately I've been wondering...

I settled down Found a better way back out You, you wrote my name on leather and lace In the place, where we won't change But you wrote it wrong "Same old same" was my thought If I hit it wrong Fern-lined edge, and I'll get caught Hey, I'll grab the sun And tell everyone "That boy, he can run!" Hey, I'll grab the sun And tell everyone "That boy, he can run!" Oh, slow decay In the field where we played Oh, slow decay In the field where we played

Stand up from the table Put a sunbeam in your back Darkness at the windowsill Stained glass still intact Picture frames, they rattle And fall down to the floor The silverware begins to rust and curl Yeah, something is happening here Telling us to get up, get out Leaning hard into our fears Now they're calling me by my name Telling me to get up, get out Man, it's the worst we've seen in years No one here is having fun It's fun for no one When you're always on the run It's fun for no one Get up, get out Quickly open up the door We find ourselves inside another world Yeah, something is happening here Telling us to get up, get out Leaning hard into our fears Now they're calling me by my name Telling me to get up, get out Man, it's the worst we've felt in years No one here is having fun, it's fun for no one
