I forgot her name - 100 girls look the same When I close my eyes - All I do is fantasize And she knows - she goes, "Tell me I'm the only one on your mind, When you close your eyes" All I wanna do is give my song to you She looks away - I ask why but she won't say It's cause she knows - it shows So how can I stop the tears my baby cries, When I close my eyes Hush little baby, don't ya know you're my lady And ya know we're always gonna be together If I'm lyin' let the sun stop shinin' Cause I'll have you to light my way forever What else can I say? And she knows - she goes, "Tell me I'm the only one on your mind, When you close your eyes" So how can I stop the tears my baby's cryin' How can I let her know my heart never lies When I close my eyes

And everything will come to pass. And it all happened in the dash I saw the numbers on each side But all that mattered was the line When you left so many came To see the stone they had engraved It all happened way too fast It all happened in the dash And everything will come and go And we will never really know Just how much falls in-between Or we'd say everything will be. But we can't sum up every page With just one cover and one name It all happened way too fast And all we had becomes a dash And if I had one more chance for us to start things over Ya know I wouldn't change a thing And if I had one more chance for us to be together If I could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing And everything will come to be Another distant memory Something alone to make you laugh One for your own epitaph And in the end what will they say About your spirit and your name It all happened way too fast And all we are becomes a dash And if I had one more chance for us to start things over Ya know I wouldn't change a thing And if I had one more chance for us to be together If I could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing Life is what happens in-between the dreams you're trying to remember Life is what happens in-between going for your longest breath underwater Life is what happens in-between the red lights and stop signs Life is what happens in-between losing your patience on the express line Life is what happens in-between letting the phone ring and staring at the number Life is what happens in-between finding out what no one wants to tell ya. Life is what happens in-between staying for the end of your favorite song Life is what happens in-between wanting to say it, but waiting too long Life is what happens in-between each fight on the message board Life is what happens in-between each time I leave for another tour Life is what happens in-between the holding out for a better spot Life is what happens when you take a chance and lose what ya got Life is what happens in-between the traffic stopped to look at the crash Life is what happens in-between forgetting to hit save and starting from scratch Life is what happens between agreeing that the year went by so fast Life is what happens and all we have becomes a dash

You and I Since you've gone all the flowers have died You and I We've been drifting apart for some time How could I survive In this world full of cocaine and lies? 'Cause every day away feels like I've gone a thousand miles and have to go a thousand more It's like a slow death in my soul I feel while falling into space now darker than before What ever happened to those simple days? You and I From a distance we're just shapes and lines You and I Pictures filling with holes in our minds What can I do? Change the tides so they bring me to you? And every day away feels like I've gone a thousand miles and have to go a thousand more It's like a slow death in my soul I feel while falling into space now darker than before What ever happened to those simple days? You and I Disconnected and falling apart Crucified By the hand that keeps squeezing my heart How could I survive In this world full of cocaine and lies And every day away feels like I've gone a thousand miles and have to go a thousand more It's like a slow death in my soul I feel while falling into space now darker than before A thousand miles, a thousand miles, I go a thousand more What ever happened to those simple days? I sure miss those good ol' simple days I sure miss the world before it changed

I can hear the sound again Voices dancing in my head Smile wide - drowning slowly as the echoes rise Angels pounding at my door They want to take away my war I won't let them carve away the edges anymore No more... I can feel my face changing Every day must have its night Every curse is a blessing Like a shadow in the light Life is beautiful and crazy Isn't it just like you and I It's alright - like a shadow in the light Her ear pressed to my chest She can almost hear my breath Don't you cry - it's ok - I chose it all this time... Every story has an ending Even though words never die Every curse is a blessing Like a shadow in the light Winter won't last forever And neither will I It's alright... Thank you God for all these choices In the boundaries of your game Through the silence and the voices All my love will never change It was so nice to be normal To be normal for a change So strange... It was so nice to be normal - but what's normal, anyway?

For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And it hits me like a flick of the switch You're my perfect angel, but sometimes All I see is a fuckin' bitch The problem's not you, I know, it's true There's just somethin' goin' on in my head Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And the button gets pushed all the time For all the fun I have inside you I could leave it at the toss of a dime The problem's me, that much I see There's something wrong inside my head Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And it crushes me like a ton of bricks Just when I think I'm gonna reach out for your neck Instead my hands go right to your tits I've always known I'm crazy I'm just tired of tryin' to pretend Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again It's like runnin' face-first into a wall Till I black out down on the floor The next time ya see me chargin' towards ya Just push me right out the door The intensity's too much sometimes Fame is a fuckin' cage I'm infected with this rage And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now we fuck like ab-normal again

Lady Delilah - she enslaves me I'm bound and chained by her lies One look in her eyes and she breaks me And I fall down like rain As the wind sings her name Oh, Delilah… I was the strongest man alive Till you came along - my Delilah She deceived me but believe me it was alright To touch her lips was to kiss the blades of her knives Why do things we know are wrong feel so right? Worth a lifetime of pain For one night to sing her name Oh, Delilah… I was the strongest man alive Till you came along - my Delilah Well I'll never be the same Cause that girl - yeah, she's to blame How could I love again Since she took my heart away. And then someone said her name And I tore at my flesh to dull the pain of the sound And ripped from the chains and the walls came down And I lay covered and bound And I called out her name… I was the strongest man alive Till you came along - my Delilah
