Busted – Matchbox 20

I forget when words were only words
She knows the party makes me nervous
In this stage we can’t get hurt
Don’t try to understand me

We’re too cool to be alone
But, not too crazy to get busted

I found out one life ain’t enough
I need another soul to feed on
I’m the flame I can’t get burnt
I’m wholly understated

I found silence in this space
An on and off again attraction
I need such amazing grace
Heaven sweep me away

[chorus]

Love don’t change, don’t come around here
Don’t wear my heart on your sleeve
Like a high school letter
Don’t strain, cuz nothing ever comes from it
And the people we’ve become, well
They’ve never been the people who we are

I strap on one horse and prayed for luck
I dug another hole to bleed
I know exactly how this works
I need a new feel dirty

I don’t need you crowding up my space
I just want to get inside you
You can’t blame the heart you save
Giving something awa

[chorus]

I dreamed that the world was crumbling down
We sat on my back porch and watched it
I dreamed that the buildings all fell down
We sat on my back porch and watched it
In my head I heard the sound
Like fifteen strangers dancing

But oh how I want you to know me
Oh how I want you to know me
Oh how I wish I was somebody else, baby
Oh how I wish you could own me

[chorus]

I’ll Believe You When – Matchbox 20

I’ve tried so many times
To tell you how I feel
But you’re far too disbelievin’
Are you tryin’ to get even with me

Maybe once or twice
I wasn’t fair I wasn’t nice
But now I’ve got myself together
When I promise to be better you say

Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don’t turn out wrong

I could call you everyday
Give you presents by the score
And I could send you pretty flowers
Have them waitin’ at your door

I could write up in the ski
Forgive me, I apologize
Still if I when through every measure
With my promise to be better, you’d say

Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don’t turn out wrong

Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don’t turn out wrong

There’s nothin’ you can say that I haven’t tried
Nothin’ I can do will ever change your mind
Yeah, maybe I’d do better
If I told somebody else

Hell, I can’t hear a thing

Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don’t turn out wrong

Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don’t turn out wrong

Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, I’ll believe you when
Whoa, when everything you say
Don’t turn out wrong

Oh, and I’ll believe you when
Whoa, and I’ll believe you when
Whoa, and I’ll believe you when
Everything you say don’t turn out wrong.

Downfall – Matchbox 20

Wonder how you sleep
I wonder what you think of me
If I could go back
Would you have ever been with me
I want you to be unused
I want you to remember
I want you to believe in me
I want you on my side

[Chorus]

Come on and lay it down
I’ve always been with you
Here and now
Give all that’s within you
Be my savior
And I’ll be your downfall
mmm, mmm, mmm

Here we go again
Ashamed of being broken in
We’re getting off track
I wanna get you back again
I want you to trouble me
I wanted you turning down
I want you to agree with me
I want so much so bad

[Chorus]

Come on and lay it down
I’ve always been with you
Here and now
Give all that’s within you
Be my savior
And I’ll be your downfall
mmm, mmm, mmm

Yeah, be my savior
(Only love can save us now)
(Don’t lay me down)
(Only love can save us now)
I’ll be your downfall (I’ll be your downfall)
(Ah, love can save us now)
(Don’t save me now)

Lay it down
I’ve always been with you
Hear me now
With all that’s within you
Be my savior
And I’ll be your downfall
mmm, mmm, mmm

Now I’m back on my own
Hear my feet, they’re made of stone
Man, I make you go where I go
Well hell, you, can I take you home
Well, I’m coming home on my back
Kissing me, your lips painted black
Saying Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Let me be your downfall
Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh
Let me be your downfall, baby

Leave – Matchbox 20

It’s amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and lose it all

It’s unnerving
How just one move puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell

I’m not saying there wasn’t nothing wrong
I just didn’t think you’d ever get tired of me
I’m now saying we ever had the right to hold on
I just didn’t wanna let it get away from me

But if that’s how it’s gonna leave
Straight out from underneath
Then we’ll see who’s sorry now
If that’s how it’s gonna stand, when
You know you’ve been depending on
The one you’re leaving now
The one you’re leaving out

It’s aggravating
How you threw me on and you tore me out
How your good intentions turn to doubt
The way you needed time to sort it out

I’m not saying there wasn’t nothing wrong
I just didn’t think you’d ever get tired of me
I’m now saying we ever had the right to hold on
I just didn’t wanna let it get away from me

But if that’s how it’s gonna leave
Straight out from underneath
Then we’ll see who’s sorry now
If that’s how it’s gonna stand, when
You know you’ve been depending on
The one you’re leaving now
The one you’re leaving out

The one you’re leaving now
The one you’re leaving out

I’m not saying there wasn’t nothing wrong
I just didn’t think you’d ever get tired of me

But if that’s how it’s gonna leave
Straight out from underneath
Then we’ll see who’s sorry now
If that’s how it’s gonna stand, when
You know you’ve been depending on
The one you’re leaving now
The one you’re leaving out

Tell me is that how it’s going to end
When you know you’ve been depending on
The one you’re leaving now
And the one you’re leaving out

The one you’re leaving now
The one you’re leaving out
