‘Suffocate’ lyrics

I’m much less than you think I am …


Good morning baby, guess you wanna touch me now
You wanna put your hands on my face
Tell me you love me,
Tell me you need me
Don’t say you love me
Don’t say anything
‘Cause I am not that kind of man, I’m much less than you think I am
So many people are just like Jesus,
They drag all this weight, to get to anything better than
where they’ve been
or where they are
Well tell me what the hell’s the reason when we never get
anywhere
But you want me to say “Hey, it’s okay”
But I’m so dizzy baby, just get the hell away from me
How can you breathe?
How can you see?
I can’t even sleep when you’re with me
I’m sick of summertime
I know all of the best things in life are unkind
To be everything I could be, anything
But all the time I’m thinking, “If I only had a pair of wings”
But you want to touch me
Just get your hands off me
Don’t touch me
And baby, I can’t see that you see
How can you see?
How can you breathe?
I can’t feel a thing when you’re with me
I can’t take it this way, I hope you understand,
Don’t you fucking touch me
I can hardly stand to look at you
How can you breathe?
How can you see?
How can you breathe?
How can you see?
I can’t even sleep when you’re with me
How can you breathe?
How can you see?
I can’t feel
I can’t feel a thing
Can’t feel a thing

‘Goin Down to New York Town’ lyrics

I met a girl with autumn in her eyes and summer in the way she makes me feel …


Well I feel just like a freight train baby,
running out of steam.
I wanna go on down to New York town,
but I’m stuck in between.
And I could stay on here at home alone
and have myself to thank,
But I just made a billion dollars
and I don’t wanna put it in the bank,
So if you call…
we could go to town.
Well dear mom,
if you could see me now here underneath the lights
I gotta keep ’em on from dusk to dawn
and everything’s alright.
I met a girl with autumn in her eyes
and summer in the way
She makes me feel
like I was only born today or yesterday,
And if she calls…
we could go to town.
But everybody here
hates everything I say,
and girl I just don’t know
if I can last another day.
So I guess I’m going back,
back where I belong,
I hope you come along
before I get back on that train that takes me…
home from New York City
to the things I left behind
And ‘though I ain’t got no money girl
, I’ll always have the time.
But I wish that you would hurry,
I hope you get here soon
’cause I just sold the sky to the sun
so I could buy for you the moon.
And if you call…
we could go to town. So if you call…
yeah, if you call…
girl, if you call…
we could go to town.

‘Closer To You’ lyrics

I don’t know how I’m gonna be alright. But I’m all messed up. Ya, I’m all messed up without you …


Come a little closer if you can
just forget your fears
Come to me
cause where I want to be
is closer to you
Put your little hand into my hand
throw off this disguise
Come to me
cause I just want to be
closer to you

I’m oh so tired of this awful fight
can’t get by without you
I don’t know how I’m gonna be alright
But I’m all messed up
ya I’m all messed up
without you
Don’t you wish we were younger
these things go to fast
Come to me
because I used to be
closer to you
Oo come to me cause
I need to be closer to you.

‘Open All Night’ lyrics

She said “I was born the year the rockets landed. Circa 1969, and I got stranded. Yeah, but the comet’s getting close, and I can’t stand it” …


Exit 8
Small cafe
Georgia moonlight
It’s 3a.m.
I’ve been driving all night
Got a funny air
Red-brown hair
In the porch light
She said ‘We’re open all night
so won’t you come inside
it’s gonna be all right”

She said “Tired?”
I said I’m a little bit unstable
She said “Honey, I will help you if I’m able”
There’s a bottle of relief upon the table
And we’re open all night
So won’t you come inside
It’s gonna be all right”

She said “I was born the year the rockets landed
Circa 1969 and I got stranded
Yeah, but the comet’s getting close
And I can’t stand it.”
She said ‘We’re open all night
so won’t you come inside

Exit A
Small cafe
Smoke at three
Georgia moonlight
It’s 8 a.m.
I’ve been drinking all night
And there is nothing I will not do to make it all right
She said “We’re open all night
So won’t you come inside
It’s gonna be all right”
