So maybe I'm not as hard as I thought I was At age 15 when I caught my first real buzz But that don't mean my mind won't break When you put my pride at stake Penning lyrics through a droning lecture Could it be all high school conjecture You must have known all along Good from bad, right from wrong But you seem to see right through me You're all that I've got and it's gunna consume me But I know it's good to be choosy Watch out maybe you're about to lose me But you seem to see right through me You're all that I've got and it's gunna consume me But I know it's good to be choosy Watch out maybe you're about to lose me So let your mind surf On the black turf Wasting the day, 'til you toil away All in for a higher number Status, madness, Dumber and dumber and dumber and dumber and dumber But you seem to see right through me You're all that I've got and it's gunna consume me But I know it's good to be choosy Watch out maybe you're about to lose me But you seem to see right through me You're all that I've got and it's gunna consume me But I know it's good to be choosy Watch out maybe you're about to lose me

It's sad to see how much I gave in to you What little I received We could have been there, we could have saved each other If you'd only believed But you left me a piece of yourself There's nothing I could do Used to look ahead to the future Saw myself staring back at you Why is it every time I turn around You're running away Don't know what I'd do for you Don't hear what I'd say Why is it every time I turn around You're running away Don't know what I'd do for you Don't hear what I'd say Sometimes I feel as if it were all for nothing Was it worth a cent All the freedom you had taken from me Lost days that were better spent So I threw out a piece of yourself There's nothing I can do Now I see ahead to the future It's only me, there's no room for you Why is it every time I turn around You're running away Don't know what I'd do for you Don't hear what I'd say Why is it every time I turn around You're running away Don't know what I'd do for you Don't hear what I'd say I think I'll take it easy on myself And keep you out of my head We threw so many words upon each other Petty things better left unsaid Now I only feel peace in myself It's all that I could do This moment's my only future And there's no time left for you Why is it every time I turn around You're running away Don't know what I'd do for you Don't hear what I'd say Why is it every time I turn around You're running away Don't know what I'd do for you Don't hear what I'd say, I'd say, I'd say

Haunted 03:30
There's a special place in hell for people like you The ones that take my heart, but don't see it through And I'm just vulnerable if you look too close A sheet in a dark room, but you think that I'm a ghost Out in California, found my heart Took it back hoping to get a fresh start When I landed I had to let it go Buried it beneath the dirty New York snow Now I'm haunted I'm haunted I'm haunted by your ghost Now I'm haunted I'm haunted I'm haunted by your ghost So in the darkness when you stop and stare It's just a silhouette, but you think I'm there Hoping it's a message, coming through Affinity for ecstasy of what we once knew Now I'm haunted I'm haunted I'm haunted by your ghost Now I'm haunted I'm haunted I'm haunted by your ghost

Do you see him, oh the answer's always yes Every hour of the day you must confess And just your breathing it would keep him satisfied Faraway, messy haired and wild eyed There is no cure for this cursed disease Rob you of this obsession, if you please You know you love him, but you won't say a word And if you love him well, why hasn't he heard Know the reason why you keep your feelings inside When you see him, you run and you hide He follows you, well everywhere you go No matter what you'll pretend that you don't know When you're in you car, he's never far away Drive passed his house at the end of the day Though you've never met, though you've never spoke Girl that don't make your love some kind of joke When you're with those other guys He'll get so jealous, it's no surprise You know you love him, but you won't say a word And if you love him well, why hasn't he heard Know the reason why you keep your feelings inside When you see him, you run and you hide You get to talking on the phone every night You say "Hello" and then hang up, but that's alright You know sometimes, this may give him quite a scare But you only do it because you care Just because you see him in your sleep Does that make you some kind of creep You know the reason you hide inside your shell He's too good for you, baby you can tell You know you love him, but you won't say a word And if you love him well, why hasn't he heard Know the reason why you keep your feelings inside When you see him, you run and you hide

If every fire, left to burn Put itself out, each in turn We'd finally be resting now No more of this, some way, somehow But that's not fate that came to bear The flames still rage on, God knows where We all still feel it, subtle heat Unlearned lessons always repeat But I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves And say yeah, oh yeah There's times we've all, felt submerged Too much faith in what our teachers urged When they themselves, had just forgot How it feels to be in our spot Then the roles must be reversed Saying the words you've always rehearsed See the change in jaded eyes In your youth, you're much more wise But I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves And say yeah, oh yeah But I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves I just want to jump into the waves And say yeah, oh yeah
