Long Beach confidence the valley and the skirts drink up the arrogance 'cause I'm your favorite, I'm your favorite true loves a rule I'd pay to break this cities built on buying fame they call it El Segundo but I'll be your first LAX is splitting the ozone young lungs still burn you don't know where I've been just a reel without a hook I don't know where I'll be just an asterix in the story book true loves a rule I'd pay to break this cities built on buying fame the solution to pollution is dilution or infusion desperate lives don't forget the reasons you love me

no one wants to live forever without love on the west coast slide skipping class like it's over and the skirt begs why little birds on your shoulder but the ink ain't dry 23 is a number that brings me back young enough to remember a prom night flask substitute the curves of your body for the stories and pain that divide me substitute your name on the blank sheet for moment where principals are fought why you wanna run forever? shattered love in your hands tonight no one wants to live forever without love on the west coast slide teachers know that lessons are sealed in blood tenured love is a prison, just to tie us up when the chance is a drug that makes us whole hit the breaks and let our hands grown why you wanna run forever? shattered love in your hands tonight no one wants to live forever without love on the west coast slide why you wanna run forever? your school charm is keeping me from leaving I'll lose your number in the back of a Lincoln why you wanna run? on the west coast slide

bet your bottom dollar it won't last that long hopeless outside the moat shedding like a flower honey on your breathe god knows how far you'll go others tried to love you claiming the free pass cobwebs consume the postal code wading through eternity for the next clean dream it's 81 degrees now you're crawling back to me it's too late, it's too late the price we pay skidrow's gonna make you cry skidrow's gonna make you cry tonight the homeless ain't lonely it's sunset on high street poverty is all we see the homeless ain't lonely the homeless ain't lonely tonight

she held a thrift store pose with Cure on the stereo a pastor for the scene the way she stood on her toes for songs that she didn't know and lyrics kids can't read she was pretty in pink with sleeves like an artifact multiplied the treason but he was holding her hand with claws like a weatherman I'll wait another season please stand here for a minute I'll find a way to make it and cross that frozen garden line please wait here for a minute I'll find a way to leave it I'll find a way to make you hurt when the borders long gone and we're reunited you won't break for me when our secret of love is drowned on the stereo just choose the wedding theme now you swear you're back with eyes that can haunt me and bruises left on your knees just a punk rock queen lost in your coronation this night belongs to me please stand here for a minute I'll find a way to make it and cross that frozen garden line please wait here for a minute I'll find a way to leave it I'll find a way to make you hurt in a moment they're gone and I'm left and holding it takes a moment leave your name on the stereo and you don't know what it's like just stand on your toes and watch me, watch me go just stand on your toes for lyrics you didn't know just stand on your toes and watch me, watch me go

I'm saving this high for you and me the summers at your door schools out for summer don't watch it fall apart it's up to you it's up to me and you can slow this down arrows scrape across our skies summer blood behind the scenes carve a note inside a tree and you'll forget these songs come on and lay down can't let go summer blood, they know it's up to you can slow this down arrows scrape across our skies the silver lines around the truth are dry enough to shield your view the silver lines around the truth are dry enough to shield me from you can't slow this love in real time the silver lines around the truth can't slow this love in real time

the devil can judge you're on the same side looking in the grass is orange a whore to the spin a degree is a crutch they sold you 100,000 thin now your fathers selling off the last drop now your mothers selling off the grave plots more than a number spare the world the trust fund perspective your tongues too blue Williamsburg is safe for the rich kids just choose the avenue one day you'll wake up and realize it's a numbers game guess who's caught holding the last guess who's caught roaming the same blocks more than a number one day you'll realize (more than a number)

stow your eyes, there's always something to cry about save your mind, death it thrives in defeat leave the children they don't know better sticks and stones from lace and leather cleaning out the sand between the sheets cold sober frowns, you're older now listen to the warning is it colder on the inside (crooked house) is it colder on the inside (needles pound) is it colder on the inside (crooked how?) is it colder on the inside? hold on to me shed your bones, there's always marrow to keep afloat grind your teeth for quid between the sleeves leave a note for the untamed spirits moving up north, I'm your outer limit 21 degrees will keep you clean is it colder on the inside (crooked house) is it colder on the inside (needles pound) is it colder on the inside (crooked how?) is it colder on the inside? hold on to me let me be hold on to what we leave between just hold on to me

share the bounce let's make this count and find our own way share the bounce just turn me upside down forget the small change turn me off, the fire keeps spitting it's closing time so lock the door, it's safety in numbers and warm behind the blinds whoever said that three was a crowd didn't know just where to start whoever said that two was enough was blinded by the simple visions share the bounce let's make this count and find our own way share the bounce just turn me upside down forget the small change whoever swore, that faith was worth faking was passed out on the stand you'll never know that I was your answer just a marble inside, inside your hand share the bounce let's make this count and find our own way share the bounce just turn me upside down forget the small change

Frankford Avenue is where I'm gonna find you riding over the tracks of the 15 fixed gear lovers the shadows that bind two steal some sugar and just close your eyes sign that treaty drown on the Delaware it's not over, it's not over, it's not over light that cigarette, abandon the fresh air it's not over until we got the tigerbeats keeping us on our feet taking it to the streets (I gotta feel from you the other side) we got the tigerbeats keeping us on our feet taking it to the streets (the stage is ours tonight) from the other side... Monday lights are burning the city kids it's not over, it's our future, it's our future dirty dreamers and the tickets to short clips it's not over until... we got the tigerbeats keeping us on our feet taking it to the streets (I gotta feel from you the other side) we got the tigerbeats keeping us on our feet taking it to the streets (the stage is ours tonight) the stage is mine tonight TIGER you're a star cross my heart

it takes a lifetime to find it and when you wanna ride it that ghost is gone some waves lose control in the evening when the seagulls aren't stealing we just want to know that feeling of falling takes a moment to free a man when the leash finds the coral hands you'll find out that god's in another league there's a half moon inside of me it takes a lifetime to find it and when you wanna ride it that ghost is gone backwash skin feels like love lying on your back, just staring at the stars above it's that fleeting moment, that fleeting moment it takes a lifetime to find it and when you wanna ride it that ghost is gone is it smooth inside? ride the barrel of the maverick high is it smooth inside? lose your edge and you lose, cause she'll make you try she'll make you try ride the barrel of the maverick high she'll make you try lose your edge and you lose, cause she'll make you cry it takes a lifetime
