Well, it's six o'clock on the west coast And I'm waiting for the sun to come I miss the hours of the weekend When I knew I had time to waste It's a breezy spring morning When I finally get outside I'm in love with the way the branches sway As the wind sings me a song, and it goes: "It's 9 a.m. on the eastern shore And it's 9 a.m. for you And I can't imagine what that's like To live the way you do" Leave me a message short and sweet so I can hear your voice Tell me about the morning and the night before, the night before And we both know that distance makes the heart grow fonder So I hope you also can't wait any longer "I'm sick and tired of Mondays just like these And I'm sick and tired of never knowing where you'll be All I can hope is that it’s worth it in the end"

I messed up today It was nothing big, just a little thing But for the rest of the day I'll be thinking all about it, you tell me: "One mistake doesn't make you a pariah" And one mistake you can move on from "One mistake, you ain't screwed up forever" Yeah, I can take what I learned and grow "Oh, one mistake, you won't even remember" There's so much more to our lives "Give it two mistakes, then maybe we'll start over" But we'll cross that bridge when we get there, dear And it's Tuesday, and the rain pours down And the clouds roll through the sky And we're walking down Lawrence As the passing cars roll by And that one mistake isn't even on your mind For goodness' sakes, honey, don't trip the breaker You know it'll make her cry And by her I mean me 'cause the third person seems Like a way to garner sympathy by externalising And oh! let's turn the lights back on and sing a song for two: "My one mistake had nothing to do with you And I'd tell you about that mistake but now there's nothing to"

And I'm sorry that I haven't had time for you lately I've been taking some time to figure out where all of this leaves me 'Cause I'm actualising my hopes and wants I'll be moving away from these old haunts And I'm loving the way you'll love the way I'm gone When I'm gone You say you love me, what am I supposed to say? 'Cause I didn't ask you, anyway And I don't mean to ruin your Wednesday But I kind of just don't care 'Cause I'm mixing things up, do things I wouldn't usually do And trying to prove to myself that I don't need you And babe, so far it's working, but it's leaving me scared What do I do if I don't need you? Sell my stuff over the internet and get the rest packed up Take a train to anywhere else and see just what they've got How many lives do you get to live if you just give that a chance? Is anyone ever gonna let me go without pomp and circumstance? 'Cause it's messing me up, and I don't know how to take it Skip through the song and dance, I can't fake it I gave those lessons a try But you know I got like three left feet

Turn around, there's a skull on your shoulders Can't quite make it out from here Time and time again I see someone around Who looks unabashedly queer Oh, baby, 'cause I love you I've been wondering how to live like you Oh, baby, 'cause I want to Be someone who looks the way you do Take my hand, there's a layer of spiders And webbing that covers the floor Thursday's good but today's better I know you'll just ask me what for Oh, darling, 'cause I must know Teach me all the things that make you you Oh, darling, 'cause I'm holding On to hope there's something I can do But don't you ever give up for giving up's sake There is no afterglow; there's only intense shame

It's Friday night, I'm bored Let's go down to a haunted house I hear there's a spooktacular one Just a few blocks down the street You'll be fine, I'll hold your hand And nothing's gonna getcha Just remember nothing's real Except the cute girl next t'ya But in the darkness in the street I start to shiver, start to shake You ask me what's wrong, and I don't answer We keep on walking down the way It's Friday night, I'm tired Let's sit down for a moment I thought it must be closer than this I hope we didn't pass it You turn your flashlight on And shine the bright light toward me Your eyes grow wide And then you start to scream And in the darkness in the street The full moon like a bauble shines down on me Fur and claws and fangs in my jaw, I have transformed And there's nothing I want more than to howl O lovely lady by my side I think it's you I'll dine on tonight

I spend my whole week waiting for Saturday Oh, my Saturday And she still isn't here, not here I wonder where she's gotten to Take my nuclear football Take my seat on the bench Sometimes I sit and wonder Whether it was heaven-sent I spend my whole week waiting for Saturday Oh, my Saturday But it seems that she's passing me by And I guess I can't complain 'Cause if it wasn't for disappointment I wouldn't have any appointments That's from a song called "Snowball in Hell" And it's only in here to annoy my brother Take a part in our motion picture Take apart origami I've been thinking about What I'd be doing if you never saw me

Good morning, sunshine The day has finally come And I'm holding on too tight But I ain't ever letting go And remember how it was Yesteryear, before the summer I've been tired for so long But now I'm ready, form a circle And ring around the rosie Sunday, yeah, I'll come your way And I never should have left to begin with Oh, Sunday, yeah, say my name And I'll stay, and I'll stay, and I'll never leave again Oh, Sunday, my heart breaks I'm a fool, I'm a knave, I'm a cur and curmudgeon Oh, Sunday, no, I'm not afraid Because I'm coming home to you A pocket full of posies Sunday's taking me back, she's taking me back She's taking me back, oh lord Sunday's taking me back, she's taking me back She's taking me back, oh lord Sunday's taking me back, she's taking me back She's taking me back, oh lord Sunday's taking me back, she's taking me back She's taking me back, oh lord Ashes, ashes, we all fall down

I don't care if the sun turns to rain I will bask in nature's splendour I don't care if the pleasure turns to pain I will show God I'll endure I try to cherish each and every day I'm so in love with all of you, I'd say I don't mind if the water turns to wine Though for seven months I'll find myself parched I don't need a whole lot of sympathy Though I know it comes from the bottom of your heart I try to cherish each and every day I'm so in love with all of you, I'd say I think by now you know I think I've lost it Somewhere in everyday 'Cause there's a cost to The things we take for granted And I really have to hand it to you You put up with the things I do And I don't know how you stand it

"Going back to yesterday was easier than it seemed No one had even tried, no one had even tried Going back to yesterday made nothing feel the same It cleft the world in twain, oh But you're still gone, and I'm still to blame"

Hey, hello, hi, how are you? Are you ready to get up and see what we can do? There's a whole United States in the palm of your hand You're on the jungle gym of life Perched like a lovebird over the bark mulch Flip that bird to circumstance and let go of the bars "Welcome to today It's just like yesterday Except the things you do are happening right now No time to waste on wasting time 'Cause that's all the time we have And there's no time like the present, is there?" Hey, hello, are you still with me? Please don't tell me that you turned off the video I know my smiling face can be a little much to bear Go take a break, get a glass of water Do a push-up, stare out the skylight Then come back and sit yourself down, let's get started Have you ever wondered where The people more successful than Yourself and I get all their motivation? Have you ever noticed that The people more enraptured by The dumbest things kick the bucket first? "Welcome to your life Hope you can sleep at night Or maybe don't because we've got so much to do Breaking hearts and breaking glass Yeah, we're spring break broken now Carpe diem, lorem ipsum dolor sit amet" Clock is ticking and we're running out of time Vite vite, it's time to wrap this up If you can't finish, well, there's nothing to do about it But we both know that unfinished art is cr "Welcome to today It's just like yesterday Except the things you do are happening right now No time to waste on wasting time 'Cause that's all the time we have And there's no time like the present, is there? Welcome to your life Hope you can sleep at night Or maybe don't because we've got so much to do Breaking hearts and breaking glass Yeah, we're spring break broken now Carpe diem, lorem ipsum dolor sit amet"

The sun'll come out tomorrow Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there'll be sun Just thinking about tomorrow Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow 'til there's none When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely I just stick out my chin and grin and say Oh! The sun'll come out tomorrow So you got to hang on 'til tomorrow, come what may! Tomorrow, tomorrow I love you, tomorrow You're always a day away The sun'll come out tomorrow Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, there'll be sun Just thinking about tomorrow Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow 'til there's none When I'm stuck with a day that's grey and lonely I just stick out my chin and grin and say Oh! The sun'll come out tomorrow So you got to hang on 'til tomorrow, come what may! Tomorrow, tomorrow I love you, tomorrow You're always a day away Tomorrow, tomorrow I love you, tomorrow You're only a day away
