Lyrics

Faerie Under Finger

Written By: Lance Williams

faerie under finger

If I talked to God tonight
It would be for the first time in my life.
And he'd probably say to me.
"Enough with the songs about your ex-girlfriend."

You said to me one time
"Only write songs with one person in mind."
So I'll write this song to you.
And you fucking know it's the last one.

I hope you find some one new.
I hope he takes care of you.
I hope he treats you right.
I hope you have a really nice life.

We share some cosmic bond,
some fucked up thing that's made us both crazy.
And I don't know how it got to this,
but I'm pretty sure how this will end.

You know I'm happy now.
I've got a girl who really makes me smile.
And I think when the timing is right.
The two of us will probably get married.

But I can't sleep for dreaming
about you hovering over my bed
and smiling at me as you slit your wrists
and I go blind from all the blood you shed.
Faded memories still linger like a faerie under my finger.

If I talked to god tonight.
He'd probably tell me get on with my life.
But how can I keep moving forward
when I'm constantly looking back?

We share some cosmic bond,
some fucked up thing that's made us both crazy.
And I don't know how it got to this,
but I'm pretty sure how this will end.

With one of us dead.

Changing of the Seasons

Written By: Lance Williams

changing of the seasons

I went to Blossom in the morning.
Sat on the roof of my car.
I wanted to write something important.
Haven't come up with anything so far.

I was thinking about leaving.
Just cash my chips in and walk away.
'Cause it's the changing of the seasons.
And my blue skies have all turned to gray.

I was thinking would it matter
if you never saw me again?
Cause my life is torn and tattered
and I know you'll never ever let me in.

I was thinking about leaving.
'Cause I don't feel the need to stay.
It's the changing of the seasons baby.
And my blue skies have all turned to gray.

The sun's been stolen from my sky.
Endless days fade into night.
And I have lived my life in darkness for so long now.
Can you shed some light?

I was thinking of driving real fast.
Just cash my chips in and walk away.
It's the changing of the seasons baby
My blue skies have all turned to gray.

I was thinking about leaving.
'Cause I don't feel the need to stay.
It's the changing of the seasons baby.
My blue skies have all turned to gray.

On and on and on.

Begin Again

Written By: Lance Williams

begin again

All along all I wanted was just to have some friends.
All along all I wanted was a place to fit in.
All along all I wanted was just to be myself.
All along all I wanted was to be an individual just like everybody else.

And it's not hard when you're standing with your friends.
But it's so hard when you don't even have the strength to begin again.

All along all she wanted was to be part of the crowd.
All along everybody knew that this was not allowed.
All along all he wanted was to be part of her world.
All along all he wanted was to finally get the girl.

And it's not hard when you're standing with your friends.
But it's so hard when you don't even have the strength to begin again.

Help me begin again.

All along all I wanted was to finally get the girl.
