Paramore

For a Pessimist, I’m Pretty Optimistic – Paramore

Just talk yourself up
And tear yourself down
You’ve hit your one wall
Now find a way around
Well what’s the problem?
You’ve got a lot of nerve

So what did you think I would say?
No you can’t run away, no you can’t run away
So what did you think I would say?
No you can’t run away, no you can’t run away
You wouldn’t

I never wanted to say this
You never wanted to stay
I put my faith in you, so much faith
And then you just threw it away
You threw it away

I’m not so naive
My sorry eyes can see
The way you fight shy
Of almost everything
Well, if you give up
You’ll get what you deserve

So what did you think I would say?
No you can’t run away, no you can’t run away
So what did you think I would say?
No you can’t run away, no you can’t run away
You wouldn’t

I never wanted to say this
You never wanted to stay
I put my faith in you, so much faith
And then you just threw it away
You threw it away

You were finished long before
We had even seen the start
Why don’t you stand up, be a man about it
Fight with your bare hands about it now

I never wanted to say this
You never wanted to stay, well did you
I put my faith in you, so much faith
And then you just threw it away

I never wanted to say this
You never wanted to stay
And I put my faith in you, so much faith
And then you just threw it away

Misguided Ghosts – Paramore

I’m going away for a while
But I’ll be back
Don’t try to follow me
‘Cause I’ll return as soon as possible
See, I’m trying to find my place
But it might not be here where I feel safe

We all learn to make mistakes
And run from them, from them
With no direction
We’ll run from them, from them
With no conviction

‘Cause I’m just one of those ghosts
Travelin’ endlessly
Don’t need no roads
In fact, they follow me
And we just go in circles

And now I’m told that this is life
That pain is just a simple compromise
So we can get what we want out of it

Would someone care to classify?
Our broken hearts and twisted minds
So I can find someone to rely on
And run to them, to them
Full speed ahead
Oh, you are not useless
We are just

Misguided ghosts
Travelin’ endlessly
The ones we trusted the most
Pushed us far away
And there’s no one road
We should not be the same
But I’m just a ghost
And still they echo me
They echo me in circles

Careful – Paramore

I settled down a twisted up frown
Disguised as a smile, well
You would have never known

I had it all
But, not what I wanted
’cause hope for me was a place uncharted and overgrown

You’d make your way in
I’d resist you just like this

You can’t tell me to feel
The truth never set me free
So, I did it myself

You can’t be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won’t come any closer
You’ve got to reach out a little more
More
More
More, more

Open your eyes
Like I opened mine
It’s only the real world.
A life you will never know

Shifting your weight
To throw off the pain
Well you can ignore it
But only for so long

You look like I did
You resist me just like this

You can’t tell me to heal
And it hurts remembering
How it felt to shut down

You can’t be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won’t come any closer
You’ve got to reach out a little more
More
More
More, more

The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
The truth never set me free
So, I’ll do it myself

You can’t be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won’t come any closer
You’ve got to reach out

Can’t be too careful anymore
When all that is waiting for you
Won’t come any closer
You’ve got to reach out
More
More
More
More, more

Where the Lines Overlap – Paramore

Give me attention
I need it now
Too much distance
To measure it out
Out loud
Tracing patterns across a personal map
And making pictures where the lines overlap
Where the lines overlap

No one is as lucky as us
We’re not at the end but oh we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Call me over
Tell me how you got so far
Never making a single sound
I’m not used to it but I can learn
Nothing to it
I’ve never been happier
I’ve never been happier

No one is as lucky as us
We’re not at the end but oh we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us

Now I’ve got a feeling
If I sang this loud enough
You would sing it back to me
I’ve got a feeling
If I sang this loud enough
You would sing it back to me
I’ve got a feeling
I’ve got a feeling
You would sing it back to me
You would sing it back to me

No one is as lucky as us
We’re not at the end but oh we already won
No one is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us
Is as lucky as us
