Lyrics

Superchunk

Written By: Kerry Merkle

I want to feel like the world's perfect song
I want to feel that way every day
To uplift to that point then release
To drift down again with no decay
Redlined emotions of bliss in me
Sustained with no delay

And I tell myself that this is it
And I tell myself this won't end
As I succumb to the music inside myself
And let it hold me up until the end

I Guess I remembered it wrong
I sunk to a new low today
Swinging slow and binding to it
I kicked the door in and fell on my face
Revelations they flood in my head
It's just reality at it's best
But I can't let it get the best of me
No I can"t let it happen that fast

And I tell myself that this is it
And I tell myself this won't end
As I succumb to the music inside myself
And let it hold me up until the end

These are the times when it can come inside
So while, I'll let this, I'll let this divide

I want to feel like the world's perfect song
I want to feel that way every day
To uplift to that point then release
To drift down again with no decay
Redlined emotions of bliss in me
Sustained with no delay

Cliche'

Written By: Kerry Merkle

If you weren't so sick and tired, sick and tired of me
If you weren't so occupied and to busy to see
Well then things would have been the same, but I accept this feed
And I wouldn't have to sing this song to get this out of me

Still the time goes by
And I feel the same
And when I see your face I'm overcome with rage
And you stole my time
And it can't be the same
And I realize that with this time comes change

And though I never stopped to think that it would ever end
I must still remind myself that all my wounds will mend
And in this time that I give myself a place that I can see
That I've done nothing wrong except deny your feed

Still the time goes by
And I feel the same
And when I see your face I'm overcome with rage
And you stole my time
And it can't be the same
And I realize that with this time comes change

In my soul
In my mind
Deep inside
It's everything that I want and more
And you stole my time
And it's still the same

If you weren't so sick and tired, sick and tired of me
If you weren't so occupied and to busy to see
Well then things would have been the same, but I accept this feed
And I wouldn't have to sing this song to get this out of me

Climbing

Written By: Kerry Merkle

I can climb a mountain cold
I can take you to an end
I call it out
I cry aloud
I scream to you
And I let you know
And you never hear
And you hide yourself
And you like lies
And you want lies

And you live them true(2x)

I can climb above it all
I can go back to begin
The truth it hurts
So I yell it loud
Cause the pain is truth
And I want it all
Still you never hear
Though it's loud as hell
You like silence
You want silence
