  • 03:25 Lyrics
    Angels Speak to You
    Angels speak to you
    They warn you about me
    They say we're through
    Where are my angels?
    Why won't they help me hold onto you?
     
    Angels speak to you
    You tell me what they say
    That they love you
    Where are my angels?
    Why don't they love me like they love you?
     
    CHORUS:  Cause your everything celestial
    and you fit right in with them
    You're a ray of light in my hell
    so don't leave me angel-less
    Angels speak to you
    They lead you to heaven
    leaving me blue
    Where are my angels?
    Maybe they left me
    when they met you

    CHORUS

    Angels speak to you
    They lead you to heaven
    leaving me blue

    What a Letdown
    Chorus:  What a letdown your love is
    what a letdown that we’ll never know our bliss
    To the full extent of it
     
    It never was easy, we had to work so hard at it
    I guess I was lazy but there was a hint of glorious
    and now it seems hazy:  the memories we made and left
    it’s all so confusing, I think we’re both too sensitive
    But I have to say, I think I loved you anyway 

    CHORUS

    Our love was so scary, I think that we both ran from it
    too good to be true, we didn’t want the rejection
    so you never opened up and I never was committed
    our fears got the best of us and left us with this bitterness
    But I have to say, I was rooting for us all the way

    CHORUS

  • 03:58 Lyrics
    Back My Way
    I didn't know what day it was when you left me
    I didn't know what time it was when you left me
    and now I just can't think a thing
    no nothing at all
    All I do, all I do is sing this sorry song
    hoping that you'll call
     
    CHORUS: There's not enough sun in El Paso
    to shine my demons away
    There's not enough rain in Seattle
    to wash the shame from my face
    Will you ever come back my way?
     
    The time has slowed to a crawl since you went away
    I feel so low knowing that I made a grave mistake
    Will you forgive me?
    Will you ever see me the same?
    I finally see why you left me that day

    CHORUS

    (instrumental break)

    CHORUS

  • 03:30 Lyrics
    Bury Me
    I have said goodbye, you are out my life
    Time has healed nothing in my eyes
    And you know that I am right
    So bury me
     
    You have moved on, I’m still stuck on this song
    It’s taken me some time to realize you’re gone
    And to see how I have wronged you
    So bury me
     
    CHORUS:  Bury me with my disease
    Bury me with my needs
    That you could never meet
    That I could never free
    Won’t you go on and bury me
     
    I already died, you’re the one who took my life
    Time has pushed me past the borderline
    And you’re the one I left behind
    So bury me

    CHORUS

  • 02:51 Lyrics
    Love Me Still
    Call me insecure, call me what you will
    Sometimes there’s a reason for me to question you
    Call me crazy girl, say I’m in my own little world
    Don’t you ever wonder dear about these silly things?

    So please answer me when I ask you

    CHORUS 1:  If I cut my hair, if I lose my mind
    Would you love me still or leave our love behind
    If I was paralyzed, if I gain 100 pounds
    Would I still look as lovely in your eyes?
     
    I’m inquisitive and I’m skeptical
    But that doesn’t mean that I don’t trust your trusting soul
    I’m emotional, sometimes delusional
    It’s the hand of circumstance that has me ask these things

    So please answer me when I ask you

    CHORUS 2:  If you had the chance for a hot, forbidden romance
    Would you love me still or go in for the kill?
    If you spent your time with another drinking wine
    Would you find a taste or spirit you like better than mine?
    Would you love me still or leave our love behind?
  • 03:36 Lyrics
    Why Can't I Be the One?
    CHORUS:
    Why can't I, why can't I be the one
    to feel your arms around my heart?
    Why can't I, why can't I be the one to feel, feel your love?
     
    All I see is you my dream with someone who is so lucky
    Does she know, does she see what you mean to me?
     
    CHORUS
     
    Know how I feel before you leave
    I can see that you're happy
    Maybe you wouldn't be as happy with me
     
    CHORUS
     
    Every night I dream (I dream) up my own fantasy (fantasy)
    starring you and me (x2)
     
    CHORUS
  • 03:16 Story Lyrics
    Grave Love
    This will be the grave we live in
    This will house our grave, grave love
    This will keep the injuries we espouse
     
    Let us drink and we’ll be merry
    Do not think about tomorrow
    Let’s get lost here in the dirt
    That washes away our worth

    CHORUS:  Let us die, die together, we will die, die forever

    Let us pay tribute to the pain
    Leading us nowhere but nowhere
    Let us let our love lead the way
    Only here to stay
     
    One more drink and we’ll be merry
    We’ll forget about the sorry
    Waiting for us in tomorrow
    Should tomorrow come our way

    CHORUS

    Let us leave here with this moment
    As our last and lasting memory
    Let us freeze here in the dark cold
    Slowly
     
    One more drink and we’ll be merry
    Taking turns playing mere Gods
    Sucking from the honey suckles
    Poisoned with our gloss

    CHORUS

  • 01:56 Lyrics
    Dead End
    Everywhere’s a dead end
    Everything is so dead
    And I’m black and blue with purple lips
    Why won’t you kiss me?
     
    Rope of garlic ‘round your neck
    And a sandbox by your bed
    And a fountain of holy water spouting splashes at me
     
    Everyone’s a dead end
    All these voices in my head
    Will finally be silenced with violence
    Nothing sweeter
     
    Lather up your opera
    The show is ready to begin
    Raise the curtain of desire
    Wear black and plenty of red
     
    Everywhere’s a dead end
    Everything is so dead
    Everyone’s a dead end
    Everyone is so dead

    But you – you’re alive, alive to me

  • 03:43 Lyrics
    Miss the Most
    I was blind to what you were trying to say to me
    and I guess I underestimated what I meant to you
     
    (Chorus):  So now I understand and I'm sorry love
    I never gave a proper goodbye
    but know this out of all the ones I miss
    You're the one I miss the most
     
    You say goodbye so many times in this life
    We try and hide from saying it right

    (Chorus)

    Now I understand and I'm feeling bad
    but I really want you to know
    that I'm just as sad

    (Chorus)
