I've met a million people, none half as pretty as you Though some have held my gaze It's not a simple reason, why I fell for you so soon You left my mind in a daze I thought I could be, what you wanted to see And now there's nothing left at all But a comforting song Of how I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine Floating away till the end of the day When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away Now that my heart is broken, it doesn't beat like it used to Sometimes I'd felt it before Though you don't even know it, it's been that way since I saw you But now it skips all the more so Now I cry a few tears Maybe wait a few years I thought you'd always be alone But boy was I wrong So I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine Floating away till the end of the day When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine Floating away till the end of the day When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine Floating away till the end of the day When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away I'll paint the town, while drinking white wine Floating away till the end of the day When I'll be wasting away, I'll be wasting away

You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again Wasting your time, while you spend mine, Flattering all of your flaws for your affection Thinking of ways to give you all of my days If for only the chance that you'll smile for me honestly But you don't care what I got, ignore the complimenting whether or not it's true You've heard it all before, I knew you wanted more Than I could ever offer Sea of green, sky of blue How I wish I was with you When all the world was oh so colorful It's been so long since you were gone That all the world has gone to grey My love for you has Gone away, gone away, gone away Gone away, gone away, gone away You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again It hasn't happened just yet, but willing to bet In a couple of years you'll be wishing you had listened It's just a matter of time before they finally rhyme There's only so many words I could use to show you what I mean Now are you hearing me right? You may be missing the picture despite the clues You've seen it all before, I knew you wanted more Than I could ever offer Sea of green, sky of blue How I wish I was with you When all the world was oh so colorful It's been so long since you were gone That all the world has gone to grey My love for you has gone away Sea of green, sky of blue How I wish I was with you When all the world was oh so colorful It's been so long since you were gone That all the world has gone to grey My love for you has Gone away, gone away, gone away Gone away, gone away, gone away You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again You're gonna hear it again, you're gonna hear it again

All I Need 03:53
She thinks it's all a game if she's still playing, there's no one she can't beat She'll gladly break the rules we're all obeying, but she's still all I need She's about to come my way, can't think of what to talk about I usually have a lot to say but now the words aren't coming out It's the way she walks that always makes it hard to pass her by And when she's gone I'm always wondering why She thinks it's not a joke if she's not laughing, looks down on comedy No need for fun and games if she's not fooling, but she's still all I need The way she wears a frown is all it takes to bring me down and if she's not gonna stay then i'm not gonna stick around It's the way she whines that always makes her hard to satisfy, she likes to tell me if she's feeling fine Though she thinks it's all a play if she's still acting, this show's not fooling me She portrays it well, but the role is still distracting yet she's still all I need It's true that it's all just a game to her, and she doesn't play to lose but she just can't seem to learn all the rules Everyday she speaks her mind and I'm the one that has to care But she's too preoccupied to know when I'm not even there It's the way she talks that always makes it hard to say goodbye, this conversation's running out of time She thinks it's all a game if she's still playing, there's no one she can't beat She'll gladly break the rules we're all obeying, but she's still all I need She thinks it's not okay if she's not happy, it's all just me, me, me But the day will come when I'll be gone and she'll be thinking that she's still all I need, need, need

Please don't lead him on, please don't lead him on Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on You say there's no where else you'd rather go but I know The thing you're looking for, the thing you're looking for Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on Please don't lie to me, please don't lie The thrills are gone, they start to yawn, the fools are saying no, and so There's no one left show, there's no one left to show Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on Shelley, please don't lie, you know I know what's going on Please don't lie to me, please don't lie Please don't lie to me, please don't lie to me

There's a tattoo on her shoulder, it's a heart, though she's had one from the start Her hair is black but there are streaks of blonde, you can't tell which side she's really on And there's something on her mind, it's plain to see that she's preoccupied Though she'd like to leave it all behind, it was all a mistake She's holding on, as she sings her song She's holding on, day after day She goes alone and drifts away, to places felt but never known A shadow fills the spaces in between, a void is all she's ever seen Though it's hard for us to tell, but she knows it well she almost fell off The eggshells that she's walking on, they're starting to break She's holding on, as she sings her song She's holding on, day after day She's holding on, as she sings her song She's holding on, day after day after day after day But as the light shines on her eye, you see the window's closed, the soul is gone Now the night gives way to the coming dawn, she's starting to wake She's holding on, as she sings her song She's holding on, day after day She's holding on, as she sings her song She's holding on, day after day She's holding on, she's holding on She's holding on and on and on She's holding on
