Love and Affection – Neon Trees

Everybody’s tellin’ everybody off
It’s the last thing I wanna hear
You’ve
Been killing me for days and days it seems
But the truth is the thing I fear
I just don’t understand

Why my love isn’t good enough
I just don’t understand
Why my love isn’t good
Enough
For you
I want you to show me
Love and affection
Love and affection
Easing the
Tension
With love and affection
Everybody’s showin’ everybody up
It’s a competition me and
You
I stood outside your doorway
Watching you ignore me
I still think that your games are
Cute
I just don’t understand
Why my love isn’t good enough
I just don’t understand
Why
My love isn’t good enough
For you
I want you to show me
Love and affection
Love
And affection
Easing the tension
With love and affection
Put yourself in my shoes

Put yourself in my shoes
I don’t know what you’ve been told
The rich get rich, the poor
Grow old
When everybody’s blood runs cold
It’s time for something real
Ah ah ah ah

Love and affection
Love and affection
Easing the tension
With love and affection

I just don’t understand
Why my blood is
I just don’t understand
Why my love is not

Drop Your Weapon – Neon Trees

She’s getting all the attention
From things I’d rather not mention
She says time heals wounds
I said time is a masquerade
And now my heart is a weapon
When all that’s left is my tongue
In a world where words have lost their magic touch

I gave you love, gave you somethin’ for nothin’
You gave me nothin’ gave me nothin’ for somethin’
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon

Fighting demons that won?t sleep
My concentration is leaving
Every night this repeats and repeats and repeats
I fall to the floor and my life is passing
Passing right past my eyes
I’m a long lost cause
Won’t you pray for me, pray for me tonight

I gave you love, gave you somethin’ for nothin’
You gave me nothin’ gave me nothin’ for somethin’
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon

Friends, foes
And losing all my self control
What I fear most
Are visits from the Holy Ghost

Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon
Drop your weapon
Drop drop your weapon

Your weapon
Your weapon
Your weapon

Wish List – Neon Trees

I’ve had a fire burning
Since the holidays began
I here its cold out where you’re living
But it ain’t colder than I’ve been
I’ve been an animal since you left me
I need you wrapped under my tree
My Christmas cheer is here and ready
But where are you to set it free

I sit alone
By the fire inside our home
Outside the snow is falling
And I’m singing

Wish as I may, wish as I might
Grant me this one small wish
On Christmas night
‘Cause I don’t need candy
Or the toys from my youth
I just want you, oh darling, I just want you

I’ve had a candle burning
Hoping you’ll come back to me
I think this may be more than anything
Mr. Santa Claus can bring
I was adorable when you left me
I’m on the naughty list this year
A lump of coal won’t do it justice
It’s all the loneliness I fear

I sit alone
By the gifts in our own home
You’re not a single one
And now I’m singing

Wish as I may, wish as I might
Grant me this one small wish
On Christmas night
‘Cause I don’t need candy
Or the toys from my youth
I just want you, oh darling, I just want you

I’m not Grinch
I’m not Mr. Scrooge
My heart just needs your light
The only thing I’m doing
Is crying in my room and singing
I wish my baby would be with me
Tonight

Oh oo oh oo oh oo oh

Oh I’ve been so lonely

Wish as I may, wish as I might
Grant me this one small wish
On Christmas night
‘Cause I don’t need candy
Or the toys from my youth
I just want you, oh darling, I just want you

Oh oo oh
I just want you, oh darling, I just want you

Phones – Neon Trees

Well just give me the beat!

Excuse me
Can someone help me
I’ve misplaced my love
And she used to talk
With her own mouth
But now her own mouth is sewn shut
Forgive me
I am lonely
Lonely for her touch
Now I used to be
The one thing she needs
But now I’m not good enough
Please help me

Operator
We lost our connection Operator
Where’s our communication
Operator
I am in love, all alone, you know,
Cuz she’s just always talking on the phone

Lies, lies, pretty lies
They make no sense to me
Now I’m convinced that nobody?s ever
Honest when they speak
We need something more
Cuz we’ve been lost at sea
And we’re dead and drowning
In a wave of new technology

Now I’m all alone
Don’t answer that phone
It’s a social nightmare
And you just don’t care
And you just don’t care
She made me laugh
Oh now she makes me cry
Now I’m all alone
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why

Operator
We lost our connection
Operator
Where’s our communication
Operator
I am in love, all alone, you know
Cuz she’s just always talking on the phone

She’s just always talking
She’s just always talking
She’s just always talking
Now everybody’s talking on the phone
Everybody’s talkin
Everybody’s talkin
Everybody’s talkin
Everybody, everybody

Operator
We lost our connection
Operator
Where’s our communication
Operator
I am in love, all alone, you know,
Cuz she’s just always talking on the phone
Oh oh
We’ve lost our connection
Oh oh
Where’s our communication
Oh oh
Operator we are in love
