This Worlds Is Too _____ For You Complete Lyrics

1. Remind Me To Remember

I am a humble servant.  I serve, myself.

I am a humble servant, don’t look at me, don’t look at me yet.

cause I can be better, better than that.  I can be better.  Yeah.

I can be better, better than that. 

Don’t look at me.  Don’t look at me yet.

In the morning I wake up, tears in my eyes

Every evening, I’m so blurry.

In dark I, I hold my baby so tight

Every morning, we’ll be cryin’, We’ll be cryin’

Throw yourself, throw yourself in the water if you want to get cold

Throw yourself, throw yourself on the fire, if you want to burn to death

Throw yourself, throw yourself at the crowd if you really want to get wet

Don’t look at me, don’t look at me yet

cause I can be better, better than that.  I can be better.  Yeah.

I can be better, better than that. 

Don’t look at me.  Don’t look at me yet.

I can be louder, louder than that.  I can be louder.  Yeah.

I can be louder, louder than that. 

Don’t look at me.  Don’t look at me yet.


2. Stay Up

Forget the flood, when I was out praying in the yard

Listening for forever 

Drag the carpets out, into the sun

Don’t you get lonely? yeah

Don’t you get angry?  yeah

Stay up until your friends come out

You heard the cry and you wanna cry back

Forget the flood, when I was out trying to be someone

Listening for forever 

Drag my body down, into the sun

Don’t you get lonely? yeah

Don’t you get angry?  yeah

Stay up, Stay up

Hangin’ around

Wastin’ my time with you.

You heard the cry and you wanna cry back

You want to be held, you want a reaction baby

Go make yourself good, we’re all singing for ya

There’s always something out there swaying

Go make yourself quiet if you want to move with it

oh you want to move with it.  Do you want to move with it?

3. Come On Doom, Let’s Party

I’ve been waiting on an invitation

I’ve been waving like a teenager

I’ve been playing like it’s already over

Come on doom, let’s party

Come on doom, come on in

Come on doom, let’s party

Get it over.  Get it.  Get it over.

I’ve been waiting on an invitation

I’ve been waving like a dowager

I’ve been playing like it’s gonna last forever

4. Eulogy for the Lucky

Can’t make ice in the desert, can’t fool the heavens

Don’t make me feel better.  Don’t want to feel blessed

In the furnace that made us, that’s where I will rest.

And for the rest, real suffering.

No one’s gonna save us, gonna be no Jesus

No personal Jesus, gonna save us.

Luck isn’t freedom, they’re not even brothers.

Luck’s just a way of life, we’ve grown accustom

My luck is my greed.  Luck is having a news feed

I got enough.  Enough is too much.

No one’s gonna pay down the debts of our daddy

No one gonna clean the whole house

No one gonna love us madly, give us mouth to mouth

No one gonna save us, from ourselves

How does it go?  The earth will inherit.

Remember our gentleness, forget our excesses

Just keep the music, and fuck all the rest of it

yeah, fuck all the rest of it.  yeah, fuck all the rest of it.

No one’s gonna save us, gonna be no Jesus

No personal Jesus, gonna save us.

We need each other to save us.

5. Misconceptions on Forever

Out there, in the dark, everything is moving

Make me that brave.  I want to be out moving

Without the lights, without the lights on.

Take my body, make it stop humming. 

I want to be still, I want to be something.

Alive.  Alive.  In the dark moving.

Alive, alive, in the dark moving.

Out there, in the dark, everything is moving

Make me, that brave.  I want to be out moving

Without the lights, without the lights on.

Take my heart, make it stop wanting. 

I want to be here I want to be someone.

Alive.  Alive.  In the dark moving.

Alive, alive, in the dark moving.

Alive.  Alive.  In the dark moving.

6. I Need A Placebo

Come back news night, give me meaning

Come back brother

I want you to come back night cap

Cause I lost my God. My God.

I asked for small relief, all I got was free will

Set the table in mono.  Want a drink, but not the bottle.

Pour a little out, for all the days I lost to… 

Pour a little out for all the days I lost to misery, some small desire

Relieve me.

I need a placebo

I need water

I need. I need. I need.

7. Ruthie

Wish we were getting on a plane,

I wish you were running your hand through my hair

Say my name.  Say my name. 

Honey take me away from here.  

Can you hold it there?  Can you carry, can you steer?

Is it too much, this burden to share?

I can promise I can pay.  I’ll return it some day.

But honey please please take me anyway.

Honey please, take me away.

On the other side of this mean twilight there’s a clearing, or so I hear

Like a child too late, like a mother in the street

Like an old cliché 

Honey take me, take me away.

8. Rock N Roll Man

You don’t have to worry about a thing.

Time’s been rearranged and you are new again.

You’re a rock n roll man.  You’re a new idea.

Goddamn Goddamn.

You don’t have to sing another song.

There’s a choir inside of you, just sing along

You’re a rock n roll man.  You are singing with them.

Goddamn Goddamn.

I will be there for you in the night, if you need a song.

I will be there for you if you need to dream on.

What are you so afraid of (honey)

Don’t you want to be here (with me)

Everybody’s got a new friend in you.

Singing all the new songs forever and ever and ever, amen.

You don’t have to worry about a thing.

Time’s been rearranged and we are new again.

We’re a rock n roll band. We’re a new idea.

Goddamn Goddamn.

What are you so afraid of (honey)

Don’t you want to be here (with me)

Everybody’s got a new friend in you.

Singing all the new songs forever and ever and ever, amen.

Amen, Amen.

9. Your Apocalypse Was Fab

What’s better than understanding? What’s better than knowing the price of your sin?

What’s better than understanding? Don’t you dare say ignorance.

One bright February, we were all showing some skin. The gods they were laughing.

They were playin’ their cards, they were placing their bets all in

They said, “play now, play now, play now, you pay later for price of this sin.”

Gotta come down, gotta come down, gotta come down.

Don’t wait for me… no.

I grew weary of the threshold.  Yeah I know, I know, I like to see.

Take matters like that in your own hands, you might drown on your own company

Oh but the gods they were laughing. Can you believe, they were calling me a fool?

They said, “play now play now play now, you’ll pay later, for the price of this too.”

Gotta come down, gotta come down, gotta come down.

Don’t wait for me… no.

What’s better than understanding? What’s better than knowing just right where you stand?

What’s better than understanding? Don’t you dare say ignorance.  Don’t you dare say ignorance.

10. Hymn For The New World

I didn’t want to go away so soon.  I wasn’t done with you.

I didn’t want to give it up like this.  I’m not prepared to miss.

I didn’t want it bad enough.

So go on, get it going on in a new world.

Hallelujah, in a new world.

Can’t we just carry on? Can’t we just carry a little longer?

Can’t we just get it!?

I didn’t want to look away just yet.  I want my provenance.

I didn’t want to tell the truth, you know that’s when it’s time to go.

I didn’t want it bad enough.  

There is no going on with it.  Everything you know you learn to quit.

There is no going on with it.  Everything you love you learn to quit.

There is no going on with it.  Everything we love we learn to quit.

So go on, go on, get it going on in a new world.

Hallelujah, in a new world.

Promise Complete Lyrics

1 Los Angeles
Her mouth, it was moving, but no sound was coming out and your back, it was turning, around
we were, always dreaming, of a day that would never come Los Angeles, Los Angeles, I'm burning up for you
Hangin out the window, holding on to an afternoon
She knew, how to teach those, boys to fight
we were, always yellin, at the night, it would never come And wanting, was it desire? you and I, we never won
Los Angeles, Los Angeles, I'm burning up for you
Well you walk the streets and you say goodbye
All along the river tonight
And if they tell you, you must go
Just look 'em in the eye
Say, "No, no, no my love is here"

2 You Dream of China
You let the days pass. You let the night come You dream of China. You dream of no one I'm here to remind you, don't forget. Forget it I'm here to remind you
You call your father. You let it ring
You celebrate him
We are, gonna get it right
We are, gonna get it wrong
You let the phone ring. You let it pass
You want everything, you're afraid to ask
I'm here to remind you, don't forget. Forget it. I'm here to remind you
You want nothing. Cause nothing lasts except wanting
And want and get and need and pride


3 Don't Use Me up
Don't use me up
I wanted everything so don't use me up
Don't let me down
I'm really counting on you so don't let me down

Everything is easier when you wash it down All your friends are your best friends
when you wash it down
So go meet the devil. Go meet Jesus

When you wash it down, when you wash it down Don't tie me up
I got no strings attached so don't tie me up
Don't let me go

I wanna hold you back so don't let me go

Everything is brighter when you wash it down

Everyone knows your name when you wash it down

So go meet the devil... Go meet Jesus.
When you wash it down.
We went down to water to be baptized
Don't let me down to the water to be baptized

4 Pack of Nobodies
You were downstairs in the kitchen learning to be my wife
A good kid on good advice
We didn't know it. We didn't know it
We don't know how to love
we don't know how to love we don't know
We fuck it up to get caught we get caught to fuck it up
We roam around, we roam around
You said, "you got something to prove man?"
I said, "baby I just might, stick around, learn to fight"
And we didn't know it.
I don't know how to love I don't know how to love I don't know And I'm gonna need you to be careful with me
Some day you're gonna have to come home
And I'm gonna need you to take care of me
And you're gonna need me too Wefuckituptogetlost,wegetlosttofuckitup
We roam around, we roam around

5 Take it Easy
Tell me what you've done to me,
can we please take it easy?
It'd be so lovely like a gloomy afternoon
To just take it is easy with you
Where do you go with your wiles and your woes Can we please take it slow?
Can we please take it easy?
Half of heartbreak is knowing the ropes
But a tight walker's toes are well worth the show I got a dime for every song that jives
and wouldn't you know that i'm half broke
Can we please take it easy?
Don't you stop, don't you stop, talking to me Don't stop talking to me
Will you whisper something sweet?
We're riding home, riding home in the evening and we're falling asleep
Don't I have a pretty little darlin?
Don't I have it made?


6 Come to me

Come to me when you know that you're ready
Come to me when you're home
And my mama said there'd be bluejays in the summer yeah my mama said there'd be apples in the fall
But my mama don't know a thing about loving
'Cept how to catch a man when he falls
So come to me when you're good and you're ready Come to me when you're home
Yes, come come to me... Come come to me
Come come to me when you're good and ready
And my mama said there'd be oranges in the winter Yeah my mama said there'd be blossoms in the spring And my mama sure knows a whole lot about loving
So come to me and I'll give you everything
We don't know what's best for us
we don't know what's next for us but I wanna find out We don't know the half of it, but I wanna find out
I don't know what you look like old and gray,
I hope that you will stay cause i wanna find out
And I don't care I don't care anymore
I just wanna find out
We don't care we don't care anymore.
We just wanna find out

7 Falling In On It
I was in danger. I was in need.
All I could see, my own reflection
I was in danger, I was in danger of falling in on me
And if you ever, give a thought, to growing old.
Then you know about falling in, falling in on it
If you give it all up. If you give it all away.
If you give it all up. You forget your name
The Lord, he comes down, most every night
yeah the Lord, he reminds me about falling in, falling in on him
I don't wanna know my name anymore, I don't wanna know my name You forget your name forget your name forget your name
I was in danger, of being in love, of being in love, just like I use to
I was in danger of falling in, falling in on you
And if you ever give a thought, to being someone
somebody else's
then you know, yeah you know
You don't belong to me you don't belong to me
I can't get use to you, getting use to me

8 The Antidote
I don't wanna lose ever again. I don't wanna lose, nobody
I don't wanna lose, ever again. I don't wanna lose, no
Down in the night, when the demons come in
Down by your body I was born to forget
And if you ever, turn to me honey
I will say your name
And in the morning, let me see those eyes
Tie me to your longing, I'll tie you down to mine
You stop believing , you go blind. I stopped believing.
Put me down in the dark, you come untied. I hear you singing To tell you the truth I was born a liar
Oh to be good, good this time
In light of the dark, when I was blind
He took off in the night he gave his daughters all he could give He had a son to fight, a face for weathering
We reconciled. We found it out. Goodnight. Goodnight
And if there's no God then what of love?

I give up. Goodnight. Goodnight
If we fall away in the swarm, hold onto me honey

9 Adagio
Go slow my love, go slow
I got a number for you. You got mine.
Go slow, if you can help yourself, Go slow, this time I'm a goner. I wanna get on that bus
The one that'll ride me to your front door
just to tell you how much
I'm a goner. I wanna get on that bus
The one that'll ride me all through the night
Just to tell you how much

10 Richard
Don't go to sleep. Don't close your eyes
If we stay up all night, then we stay alive
Gonna say my prayers for you. Say em every night Lord I want the same thing. Always want the same thing I wanna stay alive
(listen)
Pray for what you've got. And print the money at home

11 Light is Drainin
If I were to take you, take you in my arms, now hear me
I would surely lose you.
If I were to want you. I'd come calling, yeah I'd come calling If I were to love you, really really love you
I would surely lose you
And if you, and if you wanna know love
You will seek it, you will find it
If I were to have you, what is having someone else?
No I don't wanna have you
But holding you means someone
And holding's what we do to get it
If I were to lose you, really really lose you
Losing's what we did together
Take me into the wild
Come on come on come girl there ain't nothin we can do Maybe he's just sleeping there but this light it'll come for you Come on come on come girl, I don't really care
Take me into the wild and lay me down right there

Mama Complete lyrics

Piece of It

I want a piece of it, I want a piece of it

I want a piece of it, just a teeny tiny little piece of it

Sunlight streaming through the open blinds, just one piece to make all mine

Sunlight streaming through your open lips, I want a piece of it

I want a piece of it

Running round the hillside and my feet are bare

Just one piece and I’d toss away my cares

Sunlight streaming through the open door

If I ever got it I’d just want some more

I want a piece of it

Sunlight streaming through the windowpane

If I ever got it I’d just give it away

Cause the world could really use a little light today

I want a piece of it

Had a little piece and I give it away

 

Dirty Sneakers and Underwear

Dirty sneakers and underwear, I lost myself in your dirty hair

Lost my love in a rhapsody, found my love in a factory

Stained knees and a mouth of glass, spilt milk and a horse’s ass

Built my house outta sass and wood, burn it down and it’s gone for good

Water water well the babe’s on fire.  Fire fire climbed the steepest spire

Slide down in my underwear, dirty sneakers and I don’t care

 

I just wanna feel better, I just wanna feel right

 

Best friends in a parking lot, I lost myself but I took a shot

Lost my love in a factory, found my love in a rhapsody

Bruised lips and my ringing ears. Go to sleep to forget your cares

Woes woes yeah we got a few, I bit it off now I gotta chew

Ways ways well we got too many, going downtown and you look so pretty

Love love, we got plenty, got more love then we ever had money

Joy joy we got a lot, best friends in a parking lot

 

And if you got your, you got your hands on me

You’ve got your hands on me

 

Passenger

I’m a passenger, I’m a passenger, give me the keys I wanna drive

I’m a passenger, I’m a passenger, if you give me the keys you know I won’t survive

 

Pour it down my throat, I need it just to cope

Hey kitty kitty, say it ain’t so

I’m drowning on tomorrow, losing all my hope

Bottom of the well and I just lost the rope.

I had a feeling this might not end so hot

So tell me tell me doctor you know how to make it stop

Give me all your medicine, give me all your pills

Your bedside manor, just to cure my ills

 

I’m a buffalo, I’m a lone ranger, I’m a squad car, I’m your stranger

Teenage boys are sure to take a tumble

The reigns the reigns, And my lover

 

I will be waiting for you

 

Mama’s Gonna Give You Love

 

Mama’s gonna give you love, Mama’s gonna give you love

 

O boy boy you’re a heartbreaker, I’d tell you everything if it didn’t take her

School shoppin and the neighborhood mall, I know I know that I killed it all

When you say nothin well you say in all

Can’t blame you baby, I can take the fall

Tuck you in just a one last time, tell you little baby it’ll be alright

 

O boy boy you are the one, sights so high it’ll never be done

Love you so hard and everyday, letters on my body I can read your name

I flew the coop I said it all

Left you in the nest in a tree so tall

Darkest summer and we’re losing light, tell you little baby it’ll be alright

 

Mama and your mama don’t see, you mama mama mama’s comin after me

 

Johnny Cash’s Mama’s House

Hey, you never knew what you had til you lost it

You never knew what you had

Hey, you never knew what you had til you lost it

You never knew you pretty little fool

 

Orange juice and my youth, livin it up in the poor house

Vinyl records and violins, spinnin and squawkin

Short eyelashes and your daily bread, learning bout love in your little head

Marmalade and pancakes, cookin it up in the back house

 

Creek ran dry but the water came in, dry earth so how we ever gonna swim?

Take me down to the riverside, take me there so we can cry cry cry

Then we’ll be at a babbling brook

Read me from your pages and tear me from your book

Bleed your ink right into me, fill my lungs with empathy

 

Let your Guard Down

 

You got a house in the desert, got a house by the sea

You got everything you wanted, yeah, everything but me

You let your guard down baby let your guard down

 

You got a house in the country and one in the city

You got everything you wanted, yeah, everything but me

You let your guard down baby let your guard down

 

So you’re drawing up papers and your picking fights

Meet me in a restaurant at the end of your long life

And let your guard down baby let your guard down

 

I’ll take my hilltop and you can rest on yours

Meet up in the middle baby just to do the chores

Cookin and cleanin and all I ever knew about

being in love is what I learned from you

I let my guard down baby let my guard down

 

How you gonna wear this on your sleeve?

Cause I can’t give you what you need

 

I got a house in the desert got a house by the sea

I got everything I wanted, everything but me

I let my guard down baby let my guard down

 

Fire Song

My old house, gonna burn it down.  That old house, gonna draw a crowd

Then you’ll say you lost it in the fire, then you’ll say you lost in the flame

Puttin out old desire, so you don’t have to give it name

 

You’re alright, you’re alright you’re alright til you’re not

 

If I gave you everything you wanted, if I gave you all you say I should

There’d be nothing left to me but honest, smoke and glass and nails burnt out of wood

 

My old house, gonna burn it down. Neighborhood gonna gather round

Then they’ll say you lost it in the fire, babe just say you lost it in the flame

Puttin out old desire, so you don’t have to give it name

 

No Good

You paid me with your currency, I paid you with the sun

Smoke a cigarette and get in bed if you wanna have some fun

And baby, do you, do you know the stakes,

of lovin somebody who only makes mistakes?

 

Cause I’m no good, at bein alive, I’m no good at getting by.

 

Wake up in your bed, wake in a cherry tree

Fallin out on the dewy ground, you know how to touch a bruised body

And baby, do you, do you know the cost,

of loving somebody who’ll always be lost?

 

The past is the lover you can’t have

 

Instrumental

 

Darlin

I’m leavin home on the first train tomorrow

I call it home cause it’s where I leave my sorrow

So goodbye Pappi, goodbye Ma, goodbye Chick and the rest of it all

 

If I had any sense, if I had my innocence,

I’d take you home with me, darlin’ I’d take you home with me

 

Someday soon I’ll be walkin down the street,

swingin hands with someone I’m bound to meet.

And if you see me, will you tip your hat?

Will you pull the curtains? Will you hold me back?

So goodbye lover, goodbye friend, goodbye baby and all we’ve ever been

 

We ran through the woods like some wild kids

We knew nothing ‘cept abandonment

O forgiveness, you’ve got nothing on me

‘cept your pocket watch and your golden key

why don’t you just take me? Take me
