Tragedy has always been my spark Just a way to stay scared of the dark National guitar in my hands Searching for the words of a bitter man Tragedy approaches I assume She's listening to me from the back of the room Try to figure out just what I've done Needing an excuse and I don't have one She says stop singing these sad songs They incline me to believe that somethings wrong Never given a thought to moving on But it's these sad songs or me Never held a gun and I've never threatened anyone I don't cheat you, you don't cheat me what is it your words would have me be She says stop singing these sad songs They incline me to believe that somethings wrong Never given a thought to moving on But it's either these sad songs or me Is this the last thing that I write Will I see you come home tonight A sad song to call my own I guess I'm happy enough to be alone Stop singing these sad songs They incline me to believe that somethings wrong Never given a thought to moving on I guess it's these sad songs

Like gulls to garbage, that's what our love is We are water and sand, innevitable combination We are, oh oh oh oh Lovers who should know better oh oh oh oh Pull the trigger, go ahead subject me to this Car crash romance, criminal association We are, oh oh oh oh Lovers who should know better but no Sensation a morbid fascination It's everything you do Combustion a fire burning hotter I can't put it out neither can you Flies to the porch light, (zap) we don't feel nothing We are deer in the headlights, our love is violence and, oh oh oh oh We really should know better You hear my car pull silent into the driveway So kill the desk light and climb out through the window We are, oh oh oh oh Lovers who should know better but no Sensation a morbid fascination It's everything you do Combustion a fire burning hotter I can't put it out neither can you

Love is crazy Love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance That makes me cool as I see flowers That have bloomed And promptly frozen In the early months of May and June is a beautiful time to fall in love And gracefully we fall into a hole That will never be full to us Insatiable I know Summer love is bound to Fall is crazy Love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance That makes me cool as I see flowers That have bloomed And promptly frozen In the early months of May and June is a beautiful time to fall in love And gracefully we fall into a hole That will never be full to us Insatiable I know Summer love is bound to Love is crazy Love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance That makes me cool and Love is crazy Love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance That makes me cool as

She sits in that chair Surrounded by the things that she holds dearest, nearest It's too close to call Particular points Appeal to her as sensible excuses, reclusive She's nowhere at all I don't want to be any further than you've already pushed me away Can't be bothered to call anyone but you I'm not threatening to leave, I'm promising to stay Pick up the phone Today is not a good day to be alone Echos away Fireworks flash plainly in the distance, persistant Like it's not a choice And seeing the light Illuminates the source of this seclusion She's using And losing her voice I don't want to be any further than you've already pushed me away Can't be bothered to call anyone but you I'm not threatening to leave, I'm promising to stay Pick up the phone Today is not a good day to be alone Today is not a good day to be alone

Dear John It's time to put my space suit on I feel the need to fly I once aspired to do everything she couldn't do how could I ever get that high? She walks on the dome of heaven as She walks on the edge I'm pleased to announce most all the walls are broken down I've seen it from the sky And when I look real hard while staring up in my backyard a wave hello and goodbye She walks on the dome of heaven as She walks on the edge and She talks without authorization as She walks on the edge I wanted a women who could take my intensity I wanted a man who could race against me I wanted a women who could grudgingly lose to me I wanted a women who I thought I could dominate Let's not pretend he was right When she flies away, away 'cause even now She walks on the dome of heaven as She walks on the edge and She talks without authorization as She walks on the edge

What if gone were the days when I tried to explain and the words like the wood could hold the stain I've thought it though Confession is the simple truth I despise myself because I hate your friends I go round and round and my mind pretends We pollute the air with our empty talk but with your love for me I can walk that walk I've thought it through Confession is the simple truth I'm telling you Confession is the simple truth the verdict's in I'm not right for you I can live with that If you want me to I can come to terms In my music club That our love's song gets played By just the two of us
