Get Me lyrics

1.  Get Me

I have this different state of mind
We're in different states but still I try
To let you hear, do you hear me

Your chair was left cold by the bed
Footsteps echoed in my head
Should I have begged you please, don't you leave me

I don't see why you won't let me down
Every time, well, they all let me down
And I don't see why you won't get me down
I don't see why you don't get me

I form these words so honestly
And honestly they're all I need
To let you see, do you see me

Your secret's safe but not for long
Your weakness just makes me so strong
Now that I've caught on, don't you wrong me

I don't see why you won't let me down
Every time, well, they all let me down
And I don't see why you won't get me down
I don't see why you don't get me

I've grown so tired of having desires never filled
So sick of waiting, maybe I'm fated against my will

I don't see why you won't let me down
Every time, well, they all let me down
And I don't see why you won't get me down
I don't see why you don't get me


2. Too Troubled

It was June or July I fell into his eyes
And I thought oh, this could be it
Yet in darkness I'd sit and cry

And put myself out to dry
In a trance dancing with doubt

Oh too troubled, too troubled I am
I am
Too troubled, too troubled
I am

It was August the 8th, how much more could I take
I gave up, oh I had enough
Then I drove home 'round 4am
And I'd do it again
Something gone won't matter for long

Oh too troubled, too troubled I am
I  am
Too troubled, too troubled
I am

Could more pain be all I gain
Could more pain be all I gain
Could more pain be all I gain
Could more pain be all I gain?

Oh too troubled, too troubled I am
I am
Too troubled, too troubled
I am


3. Behave

Ooh ooh ooh ooh…

You got something I can't take
Something I can't break
You got

And I want your arms around my waist
Your breath on my face
I want

Now it's too late
To tell me to behave
Oh it's too late
To tell me to behave

Ooh ooh ooh ooh…

You know when the light hits your lips
I can't resist it
And You know

So I guess the wall that you erect
Will be keeping me vexed
I guess

Now it's too late
To tell me to behave
Oh it's too late
To tell me to behave

I'm too far into what you are, what you are
I'm too far into what you are, what you are

And now it's too late
To tell me to behave
Oh it's too late
To tell me to behave

Ooh ooh ooh ooh...


4. In Your Arms

The bright day just died out
The air lingers in blue now
I'm thinking about how
I'm stuck in this town

I stole cupid's arrow
Pointed south out my window
Searching for what I know

Oh, something comfortable

Is there any way I could be in your arms
Is there any way I could be in your arms
Is there any way I could be in your arms today

This room trapped your laugh's echo
In a threshold so narrow
I'm hearing it so loud, oh
There's no way to let it go

Now these tables won't turn
So I stay seated alone
Wondering why you're gone
Oh, I know it's been so long

Is there any way I could be in your arms
Is there any way I could be in your arms
Is there any way I could be in your arms today

In your arms
Today
In your arms
Today
In your arms
Today


5. Caffeine & Nicotine

Sit up straight little child
Listen close now for a while
Don't forget your list of sins
Never let the devil win

Well I, I don't wanna
Yeah I don't wanna, oh
Yeah I don't wanna, oh

Caffeine and nicotine
Walking on a balance beam
Trying to live the dream
Of immortality it seems

Well I, I don't wanna
Yeah I don't wanna, oh
Yeah I don't wanna, oh

Say oh, I got a long way to go
I got a long way to go
I got a long way to go 
But someday I'll go
Someday I'll go

Color grey outside the lines
Paradoxically wise
You grow up the shrink in size
Start and end with crying eyes

Well I, I don't wanna
Yeah I don't wanna, oh
Yeah I don't wanna, oh


6. Melancholy

Wish I could count on my fingers
All the times I feel low
I moved to my toes now
Ran out of digits
What does that show

Melancholy
Is such a disease
Maybe I'm just
Too hard to please
I just can't tell these days

Wish I could get my knees weak
It happened once then never again
I cried just to get you
Out of my system
Had to try again

Melancholy
Is such a disease
Maybe I'm just

Too hard to please
So lonely I'll be
'Till someone decides
Otherwise, oh I
I just can't tell these days


7. I Still Believe

If this ain't off my chest, well I just can't breathe
You showed a heart I hadn't seen
Caught me before I skinned my knees
When other times I'm left to bleed

I still believe though it may be naive
We are all good as human beings
I know you'll need proof, it will seek to refute that
Yet I still believe

You got a love of nerve, you got a lot of nerve
Yet you can't sense how much that hurt
Now before you utter another word
It's something I've already heard

I still believe though it may be naive
We are all good as human beings
I know you'll need proof, it will seek to refute that
Yet I still believe

Can we all just take a breather
Turn down the heater in our head
Then fill it up with logic
It's easy to be loving instead,
To be loving instead

I still believe though it may be naive
We are all good as human beings
I know you'll need proof, it will seek to refute that
Yet I still believe


8. This Building

Don't you know that I want to leave here
From my lips down the river to your ears

You look asleep but listen
By the television
With dinner left cold by the table near

Your time's not up so you should count your blessings
Breathe life in clean with ever-healing lungs
There goes another minute
Don't wanna be alone, I get it
But everyone will be there soon enough

Here I am sitting in
The top of this building and
I'm lower than I've ever been

There's clothes in the dryer and a lot on her mind
Feels a sadness that just cannot stay in side
Makes it up the stairs not falling 
Puts the clothes in drawers then
Sits on the bed and lets out a sigh

He likes to think the past, well, it's just not real
And has today, this day, his only shield
Then wishes he'd never seen
His blood running unclean
But clean it is and now his wounds have healed

Here I am sitting in
The top of this building and
I'm lower than I've ever been

Don't worry ooh, I'm telling you don't worry
Don't cry just yet, you'll be crying too soon
Here I am alone and I've been thinking
We're all trying and can't afford to lose

Here I am sitting in
The top of this building and
I'm lower than I've ever been
I'm lower than I've ever been
Lower than I've ever been


9. Just World

It was just another day
Inside an empty house
Who would have thought
It would be burned from the inside out

She thought a simple way 
And held a lot of trust
A hard lesson was taught
She once thought the world was just

But someone just took her breath away
The enemy in the media
And what is left to forget
Is a life once lived, well you're no different
You're no different

Empathy is calling me
When I think it's just good luck
That keeps me standing here
And this thought may leave you shocked
He left his soul that day
Placed it on the highest shelf
Went out to set a flame of shame
Across all those who know themselves

But someone just took her breath away
The enemy in the media
And what is left to forget
Is a life once lived, well you're no different
You're no different


10. Hold Me Near

The city's full of people so
Why am I so alone
My skin's breaking, the cold's waiting
To leave me shriveling

And oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near
Oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near

The room turns dark, the hour's marked
The time I'm wasting starts
My eyes stare out, my head screams loud
I'm lost inside the sound

And oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near
Oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near

Fear held me in chains so tight 
That's not the hold I like

Oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near
Oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near

Oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near
Oh, no one's here
To hold me near, hold me near


11. Wishing Well

What is it all for
Took down the closed door
And now I'm throwing it
I'm throwing it away

Crawl below my lashes
A curtain falls, a blank stare clashes
Clashes with
Clashes with your eyes

Where is my wishing well
I cannot tell
A penny for a wish I'll dismiss
Before I know it

What's behind the frame tale
A major hiding a minor scale
Watching and
Waiting as it fades away

Erase my permanent memory
Temporarily as if you
Never looked
You never looked at all

Where is my wishing well
I cannot tell
A penny for a wish I'll dismiss
Before I know it
