Lyrics

Parachute Boy

Written By: Micah Thompson

Parachute Boy

Hello my darling dreamer,
You got to point A and B
All on your own
Great alter-ego son

Hey young parachute boy,
You’re painting pictures in your thoughts again
Don’t ask me when it ends

(Chorus)
Cause it’s up to you
You always do what they want you to do
But when you’re tired of this
Come and chat
And I’ll tell ya’, I’ll tell ya’
It’s nothing new

Dear Ms. Carefree girl,
You’ll lose interest by, tomorrow night
So I’ll win you another prize

Say old telegram sender,
Don’t you ever simply give a damn?
Please don’t answer that

(Chorus)
Cause it’s up to you
You always do what they want you to do
But when you’re tired of this
Come and chat
And I’ll tell ya’, I’ll tell ya’
It’s nothing new

(Solo)
How bout it kid?
You’ve got your,
Seven seconds of glory and gold
Have you fit your mold?
Or do you well,
Want king and queen to worship you
Like a rose?
I always thought, it’s good to try and be yourself
But still

(Chorus)
It’s up to you
You always do what they want you to do
But when you’re tired of this
Come and chat
And I’ll tell ya’, I’ll tell ya’
Not to even give a shit, that’s a fact
It’s the opportune reason, for a heart attack
Of less
Don’t you know,
To always, smile
Especially when you’re at your best

(Outro)
Hey young parachute boy,
You’re stealing answers from, the back of the book
How does that work?

Bye, Bye Baby

Written By: Micah Thompson

Bye Bye baby

Verse 1
Bye bye baby
Don’t you worry about a thing
Cause I’ll be there in the morning
When you can’t find yourself a friend
And don’t confuse me
With the other boy you’ve seen
I don’t share his opinion
Or the way he dreams

Chorus
I just wanted to fly, oh right by this time
All I want is to make you smile
Sometime, how about today?
I don’t think I’ll even be here next year
It seems I’ve made, other plans that I can’t break

Verse 1
Bye bye baby
Don’t you worry about a thing
Cause I’ll be there in the morning
When you can’t find yourself a friend
And don’t confuse me
With the other boy you’ve seen
I don’t share his opinion
Or the way he dreams

Chorus
I just wanted to find, some melody
That makes her mine
Don’t expect her to buy into
Anything that she finds lined
I’ve made some other plans, but I
Think I’ll change them around, some other time
I’ll break them off for you tonight

Verse 1
Bye bye baby
Don’t you worry bout’ thing
Cause I’ll be there in the morning
When you can’t find yourself a friend
And don’t confuse me
With the other boy you’ve seen
I don’t share his opinion
Or the way he dreams
Verse
I just wanted to find
Some sort of balance in my mind
Gave it up last month
Walking Chicago in the dark
I’m a die hard fan of sunny-side always up, around the town
I’ll bring it right back down

Solo
And you can’t find your fame
I always seem to be ok
I’ll stop acting strange
If you just call me one more time today

Here it comes again
The absolute failure of a man
It doesn’t take much to bring me down
Down, down, yeah
Oh here I go again
Oh here it comes again

Verse 1
And bye bye baby
Don’t you worry bout’ thing
Cause I’ll be there in the morning
When you can’t find yourself a friend
And don’t confuse me
With the other boy you’ve seen
I don’t share his opinion
Or the way he dreams

And bye bye baby, oh well yeah
Hello my dearest, and
Bye bye baby
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry about a thing
And bye bye baby, oh well yeah
Hello my dearest, and
Bye bye baby
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry about a thing

Lullabies

Written By: Micah Thompson

Lullabies

(Verse)
Well babe
You and me, we got it, we got it right
When all anyone does is want to fight
Why does it always come down to do or die?
When all they want is a simple, simple piece of mind
As it comes around to us and time, we’ll be just fine

(Chorus)
You’ve got some nerve to steal my lines
And all these giants topple with time
When I look at her what I find
Are all her
Bright eyed, blue eyed lullabies
She keeps me up at night
They keep me up at night
And she’s all mine
And she’s all mine, yeah well

(Verse)
Everything you want, well I’ve got in style
Hooded sweatshirts, tee shirts, they made her mine
Being a needy and crawling child is just what I do
But it’s my pleasure to see and well to keep them fooled
As it comes around to us in time, we’ll be alright

(Chorus)
You’ve got some nerve to steal my lines
And all these giants topple with time
When I look at her what I find
Are all her
Bright eyed, blue eyed lullabies
She keeps me up at night
They keep me up at night
And she’s all mine
And she’s all mine yeah well

(Solo)
So don’t you question this
Just take you’re time with it, well yeah yeah yeah
So don’t you question this
