Sleeping With Sirens : Live and Unplugged

Teksty


1. WITH EARS TO SEE AND EYES TO HEAR

True friends lie underneath,
These witty words I don't believe
I can't believe a damn thing they say anymore
Lie! Liar, you'll pay for your sins
Now! Liar, I know all the places you've been

Forgiveness—this taste all but poisons my mouth
I scream but nothing, nothing will come out
You've gone too far

So tell me how does it feel, how does it feel to be like you?
I think your mouth should be quiet 'cause it never tells the truth
So tell me, so tell me why, why does it have to be this way?
Why can't things ever change?

Falling over and over again
Oh, why does it have to be this way?

From the place I was, to the place I am, to the place I want to be
For the mountains I've been climbing over and under and over

From the place that I was to the man I've become
I'll be there to see the tower you'll fall from
No, this kingdom isn't quite what it may seem
You're an illusion, you'll never be king

So tell me how does it feel, how does it feel to be like you?
I think your mouth should be quiet 'cause it never tells the truth
So tell me, so tell me why, why does it have to be this way?
Why can't things ever change?

Sometimes things are better left unsaid
But this time you'll get what you give
(True friends lie underneath,
These witty words I don't believe,
I can't believe a damn thing they say anymore)

Come down, come down, come down from your tower
Come down, come down, come down from your tower

I know that for all my life, for all my strength
There is one above who can judge me
All I am is yours, all I am is yours, I am yours!


2. IF I'M JAMES DEAN, YOU'RE AUDREY HEPBURN

Stay for tonight if you want to
I can show you what my dreams are made of
As I'm dreaming of your face.
I've been away for a long time, such a long time
And I miss you there
I can't imagine being anywhere else
I can't imagine being anywhere else but here

How the hell did you ever pick me?
Honestly, I could sing you a song
But I don't think words can express your beauty
It's singing to me
How the hell did we end up like this?
You bring out the beast in me
I fell in love from the moment we kissed
Since then we've been history

They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
Please stay as long as you need
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
Please stay forever with me

It goes to show, I hope that you know that you are
What my dreams are made of
Can't fall asleep, can't fall asleep
I lie in my bed awake, in my bed awake at night as I dream of you
I'll fall in love, you'll fall in love
It could mean everything, everything to me
I can't imagine being anywhere else

They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
Please stay as long as you need
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
Please stay forever with me

The way that we are
Is the reason I stay
As long as you're here with me
I know we'll be OK

The way that we are
Is the reason I stay
As long as you're here with me
I know I'll be OK

They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
Please stay as long as you need
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
Please stay forever with me

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)
They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)
Please stay as long as you need

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)
Please stay forever with me


3. GOLD

All we want, what we want is
All we want is gold

Sunsets on Long Island
Roll the windows down in the van
Lost my map on the Jersey Turnpike
But it's ok, we ain't looking back

All we ever want is gold
One way on this winding road

We made our mistakes
It's not too late
We had to learn the hard way
Bridges will burn
Now it's our turn
We had to learn the hard way
'Cause all we ever want is gold
We made our mistakes
It's not too late
We had to learn the hard way

It's 2 in the morning
Can't seem to find the words for a song
I remembered my dreams
And how far they seemed
I can't believe how far we have come

'Cause all we ever want is gold
So it's 60 miles on this open road

We made our mistakes
It's not too late
We had to learn the hard way
Bridges will burn
Now it's our turn
We had to learn the hard way
'Cause all we ever want is gold
We made our mistakes
It's not too late
We had to learn the hard way

Don't lose your faith in me
(Don't ever look back, don't ever look back)
It's never what it seems

You'll make your mistakes
But it's never too late
We had to learn the hard way

You made your mistakes
It's not too late
You had to learn the hard way
Bridges will burn
Now it's your turn
You had to learn the hard way
'Cause all we ever want is gold (oh, oh)
All we ever want is gold
We had to learn the hard way

All we want
What we want is
All we want is gold
All we want
What we want is
All we want is gold


4. THE STRAYS

1,2,3,4!

Hubcaps and ashtrays
I was born, but I wasn't raised
The big wheel, the black space
Tried my best, but wasn't praised

Hell is so close to Heaven
Hell is so close to Heaven

Hold on, don't look back
You know we're better, we're better than that
Lost and thrown away
You know we're better, we're better than that

We are the strays (woah oh oh)
We are the strays

Train tracks to the stage
Play that role, the one you made
Long nights and the worst days
Lived it all, but I didn't break

Hell is so close to Heaven
Hell is so close to Heaven

Hold on, don't look back
You know we're better, we're better than that
Lost and thrown away
You know we're better, we're better than that

We are the strays (woah oh oh)
We are the strays

My whole life they said I'd be nothing
But I'm something
And I would rather be the stray
Than be nothing to no one at all

Hubcaps and ashtrays
I was born but wasn't raised

Hold on, don't look back
You know we're better, we're better than that
Lost and thrown away
You know we're better, we're better than that

'Cause we are the strays (woah oh oh)
We are the strays


5. FREE NOW

I wrote this song for my father
Sometimes I feel he never gave a damn about me
Though he raised me like he should
Did he understand me? No, no, I don't think so.

I wrote this song for my mother
She had to leave me, when I was younger
She said son, seek this life and keep an open mind
But in my mind's eye...

...I am free now
Free to live without my fears
I believe now
There's a reason why I'm here
It's to try to do good
It's to try to do better

Who will I be for my daughter?
This little baby, she means the world to me
Will I relive their mistakes?
Or do things the right way?
For her sake!

I am free now
Free to live without my fears
I believe now
There's a reason why I'm here

Can I be a man?
One that understands
How to love more patiently
I am free now
I am free now.

And we dream of the day, when our kids can play
In the streets with no fear them being taken away
Fathers raise their sons with respect and love
Handle anger and pain with no need for no guns
If we hope to be free it takes you and me
To start over here and now
'Cause this world is the way it is,
It's how we raise our kids.

Wrote this song for my mother,
I wrote this song for our father
So hopefully we can come together
And hopefully make things a little better.

I am free now
Free to live without my fears
I believe now
There's a reason why I'm here.

Can I be a man?
One that understands
How to love more patiently
I am free now
I am free now
I am free now
I am free now.


6. WHO ARE YOU NOW

Yeah, yeah

Don’t wake me up if I’m sleeping this life away
Tell me that I’ll never be good enough
Sometimes it hurts to think it could really be that way
It won’t be that way

I’m tired and I’m lost
I don’t wanna be found
I put my heart and my soul
And strength in this now

So forgive me ‘cause I won’t forget that
Yeah, this world has changed me
So you know when you ask me

Who are you now?
Did you say what you want?
Don’t go back to the start
I’m asking, who are you now?
Did they break you apart?
Won’t you fight back for what you want?

Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly
We’re gonna work it out

Yeah, yeah

Don’t, don’t, don’t wake me up
‘Cause I hate who I am today
So come on, come on
And just take, take, take what you want
Is it now what we’re living for?
We’re always wanting more
(Always take take take take take!)

You made me hate my own reflection
Question every choice I make
So I could try to be perfect
But I will try to be fake

So forgive me ‘cause I really could care less that
This world has changed me
So you know when you ask me

Who are you now?
Did you say what you want?
Don’t go back to the start
I’m asking, who are you now?
Did they break you apart?
Won’t you fight back for what you want?

Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly
And sometimes you really live, you’ve gotta try
We can change it all together, in the end you’re gonna find
That what we felt in our hearts was real the whole time
When you open up your eyes, I hope that you find
Who you are, who you are

Who are you now?
Who are you now?

Who are you now?
Did you say what you want?
Don’t go back to the start
I’m asking, who are you now?
Did they break you apart?
Won’t you fight back for what you want?

Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly
Sometimes you gotta fall before you fly
We’re gonna work it out


7. GO GO GO

We always seem to find a way to fuck things up
At the worst time, you know
We've never been the smartest
You know you could have anyone
But standing on the edge I said
I don't want no one else

They say it's time to grow up and stop with these foolish games
But I say they're wrong
She says go, go, go
I don't want to take it slow
There's plenty of time for us to finally get it right
Why don't we crash and burn tonight?

(So pick it up! Yeah!)

Shoulda known we were too young to feel this much
It could kill us, you know
My nearly departed
Said you were corrupting me, I was naïve
And no one knew
I kept it to myself

They say it's time to grow up and stop with these foolish games
But I say they're wrong
She says go, go, go
I don't want to take it slow
There's plenty of time for us to finally get it right
Why don't we crash and burn tonight?

This is how we'll always be, yeah
They'll see we were right and they were wrong
So I'll put it in a song
And you can sing along

She said go, go, go, I don't wanna take it slow
She said go, go, go, I don't wanna take it slow, oh

Go, go, go
I don't want to take it slow
There's plenty of time for us to finally get it right
So why don't we crash and burn tonight?
Crash and burn tonight


8. SANTERIA (SUBLIME COVER)

I don't practice Santeria
I ain't got no crystal ball
See I had a million dollars but I spent it all
If I could find that Heina, and that Sancho that she's found
Well, I'd pop a cap in Sancho and I'd slap her down

What I really wanna know, my baby
And I really wanna say I can't define
This love, that I need
Whoa

My soul will have to wait till I get back, to find a Heina of my own
Daddy's gonna love one and all
I feel the break, feel the break, feel the break and I gotta live it up
Oh, yeah
Well, I swear that I

What I really wanna know, my baby.
What I really wanna say I can't define, got love make it go
My soul will have to...
wait for a guitar solo...

And I really wanna know, my baby
And I really wanna say is there's just one
And I'll make it, yes I'm growing old

Tell Sanchito that if he knows what is good for him he best go run and hide
Daddy's got a new Forty-Five
What the fuck?
And I won't think twice to stick that barrel straight down Sancho's throat
Believe me when I say that I got something for his punk ass

And I really wanna know, my baby.
And I really wanna say is there's just one, way back, and I'll make it, yeah
My soul will have to wait, yeah, yeah, yeah...


9. SAVE ME A SPARK

Whoa

I wanna paint down my memories
So I don't forget
Could we dance when it's cold outside?
Can we live with no regrets?
So many people get caught up in everything they see
You can't always trust what you believe

Sometimes I feel stuck
Sometimes I get lost in so much hope I'm drowning

Would you save me a spark? (Oh-Whoa)
We'll start a fire that shines a light in the dark
Strike a match, make it last
We are all we need (Whoa)
Would you save me a spark?
We'll light up the dark
We'll light up the dark

I wanna crash like a tidal wave
Sing to the ocean floor
I wanna stand in a crowded room
Scream with a voice they can't ignore
While everyone is sleeping
I am wide awake
Cause hearts are only open when they break

Sometimes I feel stuck
Sometimes I get lost in so much hope I'm drowning

Would you save me a spark? (Oh-Whoa)
We'll start a fire that shines a light in the dark
Strike a match, make it last
We are all we need (Whoa)
Would you save me a spark?
We'll light up the dark

Let me see you light up the dark (Whoa)
I wanna see you light up the dark (Whoa)
I wanna see you light up the dark
While everyone is sleeping
We'll be wide awake (we'll be wide awake)

Would you save me a spark? (Oh-Whoa)
We'll start a fire that shines a light in the dark
Strike a match, make it last
We are all we need (Whoa)
Would you save me a spark?

I wanna paint down my memories
So I don't forget
Can we dance when it's cold outside?
Can we live with no regrets?

Strike a match, make it last
Cause we are all we need (Whoa)
Would you save me a spark?
We'll light up the dark
We'll light up the dark
We'll light up the dark


10. IRIS (GOO GOO DOLLS COVER)

And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
'Cause sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am


11. IF YOU CAN'T HANG

Met a girl at seventeen
Thought she meant the world to me,
So I gave her everything,
She turned out to be a cheat
Said she'd been thinking for a long time
And she found somebody new
I've been thinking that this whole time

Well I never thought you'd stay
That's okay
I hope he takes your filthy heart
And then he throws you away some day
Before you go, there's one thing you ought to know

If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
If you can't hang then, there's the door

I don't wanna take your precious time
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time
I don't wanna take up all your time
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time

You're the lowest type
You're the lowest

I met a girl stuck in her ways
She found a boy she knew she'd change
I changed my clothes, my hair, my face
To watch us go our separate ways
She said we've grown apart for some time
But then she found somebody new
I hope Mr. Right puts up with all the bullshit that you do

Stay the hell away,
While I sit here by myself
And figure out how I got this way
Before you go, there's one thing you ought to know

If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
If you can't hang then, there's the door, baby
If you can't hang then, there's the door

I don't wanna take your precious time
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time
I don't wanna take up all your time
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time

I don't want to get things confused
She said she'd never settle for some boy she couldn't use
So now I gotta call the doctor
So he can prescribe me medication
So I can deal with all the memories of being here this way

I met a girl at twenty-three
Knew she meant the world to me,
So I gave her everything,
And she did the same for me

Imagine that!
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty face
No you're such a pretty, pretty face
Whoa, oh, yeah...
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty face
No you're such a pretty, pretty face

I don't wanna take your precious time
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time
I don't wanna take up all your time
'Cause you're such a pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty face
But you turned into a pretty big waste of my time

Would you please stay and come inside, baby
Would you please stay and please be mine, baby
Would you please stay and come inside, baby
Would you please stay and please be mine?
