"When she fell, she fell apart. Cracked her bones on the pavement she once decorated as a child with sidewalk chalk When she crashed, her clothes disintegrated and blew away with the winds that took all of her fair-weather friends When she looked around, her skin was spattered with ink forming the words of a thousand voices Echoes she heard even in her sleep: Whatever you say, it is not right. Whatever you do, it is not enough. Your kindness is fake. Your pain is manipulative. When she lay there on the ground, She dreamed of time machines and revenge and a love that was really something, Not just the idea of something. When she finally rose, she rose slowly Avoiding old haunts and sidestepping shiny pennies Wary of phone calls and promises, Charmers, dandies and get-love-quick-schemes When she stood, she stood with a desolate knowingness Waded out into the dark, wild ocean up to her neck Bathed in her brokenness Said a prayer of gratitude for each chink in the armor she never knew she needed Standing broad-shouldered next to her was a love that was really something, not just the idea of something. When she turned to go home, She heard the echoes of new words May your heart remain breakable But never by the same hand twice And even louder: without your past, you could never have arrived- so wondrously and brutally, By design or some violent, exquisite happenstance ...here. And in the death of her reputation, She felt truly alive."

"Long were the nights when My days once revolved around you Counting my footsteps Praying the floor wont fall through... again My mother accused me of losing my mind But I swore I was fine You paint me a blue sky Then go back and turn it to rain And I lived in your chess game But you changed the rules everyday Wonderin which version of you I might get on the phone, tonight Well I stopped pickin up and this song is to let you know why Dear John, I see it all now that youre gone Dont you think I was too young to be messed with? The girl in the dress cried the whole way home I shoulda known Well maybe its me And my blind optimism to blame Or maybe its you and your sick need To give love and take it away And youll add my name to your long list of traitors Who dont understand And I look back in regret how I ignored when they said Run as fast as you can Dear John, I see it all now that youre gone Dont you think I was too young to be messed with? The girl in the dress cried the whole way home Dear John, I see it all now, it was wrong Dont you think nineteens too young To be played by your dark, twisted games When I loved you so? I shoulda known You are an expert at sorry And keeping lines blurry Never impressed by me acing your tests All the girls that youve run dry have tired lifeless eyes Cause you burned them out But I took your matches Before fire could catch me So dont look now Im shining like fireworks Over your sad empty town, yeah Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Dear John, I see it all now that youre gone Dont you think I was too young to be messed with? The girl in the dress cried the whole way home I see it all now that youre gone Dont you think I was too young to be messed with? The girl in the dress wrote you a song You shoulda known You shoulda known Dont you think I was too young? You shoulda known"
"We could leave the Christmas lights up til January And this is our place, we make the rules And theres a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you, dear Have I known you 20 seconds or 20 years? Can I go where you go? Can we always be this close? Forever and ever, ah Take me out, and take me home Youre my, my, my, my lover We could light a bunch of candles And dance around the kitchen, baby Pictures of when we were young would hang on the wall We would sit on the stoop Ill sing love songs to you when were eighty See, I finally got you now, honey, I wont let you fall Can I go where you go? Can we always be this close? Forever and ever, ah Take me out, and take me home Youre my, my, my, my lover Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand? With every guitar string scar on my hand I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover Look in my eyes, they will tell you the truth The girl in my story has always been you Id go down with the Titanic, its true, for you, lover And youll save all your dirtiest jokes for me And at every table, Ill save you a seat, lover Can I go where you go? Can we always be this close? Forever and ever, ah Take me out, and take me home Youre my, my, my, my Oh, youre my, my, my, my Darling, youre my, my, my, my lover"
"I tapped on your window on your darkest night The shape of you was jagged and weak There was nowhere for me to stay, but I stayed anyway And if I wouldve known how many pieces you had crumbled into I might have let them lay Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these? And let all your damage damage me And carry your baggage up my street And make me your future history, it’s time Youve come a long way; open the blinds, let me see your face You wouldnt be the first renegade to need somebody Is it insensitive for me to say, Get your shit together so I can love you? Is it really your anxiety that stops you from giving me everything? Or do you just not want to? I tapped on your window on your darkest night The shape of you was jagged and weak There was nowhere for me to stay, but I stayed anyway You fire off missiles ’cause you hate yourself But do you know youre demolishing me? And then you squeeze my hand as Im about to leave Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these? And let all your damage damage me And carry your baggage up my street And make me your future history, its time Youve come a long way; open the blinds, let me see your face You wouldnt be the first renegade to need somebody Is it insensitive for me to say, Get your shit together so I can love you? Is it really your anxiety that stops you from giving me everything? Or do you just not want to? And if I wouldve known How sharp the pieces were youd crumbled into I might’ve let them lay Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these? And let all your damage damage me And carry your baggage up my street And make me your future history, it’s time Youve come a long way; open the blinds, let me see your face You wouldn’t be the first renegade to need somebody To need somebody, to need somebody, to need somebody, to need Are you really gonna talk about timing in times like these? And let all your damage damage me And carry your baggage up my street And make me your future history, its time Is it insensitive for me to say, Get your shit together so I can love you? Youve come a long way, open the blinds, let me see your face You wouldnt be the first renegade to need somebody Is it really your anxiety that stops you from giving me everything? Or do you just not want to?"
"Im walking fast through the traffic lights Busy streets and busy lives And all we know is touch and go We are alone with our changing minds We fall in love til it hurts or bleeds Or fades in time And I never Saw you coming And I’ll never Be the same You come around and the armor falls Pierce the room like a cannonball Now all we know is don’t let go We are alone, just you and me Up in your room and our slates are clean Just twin fire signs, four blue eyes So you were never a saint And Ive loved in shades of wrong We learn to live with the pain Mosaic broken hearts But this love is brave and wild And I never Saw you coming And I’ll never Be the same This is a state of grace This is the worthwhile fight Love is a ruthless game Unless you play it good and right These are the hands of fate You’re my Achilles heel This is the golden age Of something good and right and real And I never Saw you coming And I’ll never Be the same And I never Saw you coming And I’ll never Be the same This is a state of grace This is the worthwhile fight Love is a ruthless game Unless you play it good and right"
"All I knew this morning when I woke Is I know something now Know something now I didnt before And all Ive seen since 18 hours ago Is green eyes and freckles and your smile In the back of my mind, making me feel like I just wanna know you better Know you better, know you better now I just wanna know you better Know you better, know you better now I just wanna know you better Know you better, know you better now I just wanna know you, know you, know you Cause all I know is we said, Hello And your eyes look like coming home All I know is a simple name Everything has changed All I know is you held the door Youll be mine and Ill be yours All I know since yesterday Is everything has changed And all my walls stood tall, painted blue And Ill take em down, take em down And open up the door for you And all I feel in my stomach is butterflies The beautiful kind, making up for lost time Taking flight, making me feel right I just wanna know you better Know you better, know you better now I just wanna know you better Know you better, know you better now I just wanna know you better Know you better, know you better now I just wanna know you, know you, know you Cause all I know is we said, Hello And your eyes look like coming home All I know is a simple name Everything has changed All I know is you held the door Youll be mine and Ill be yours All I know since yesterday Is everything has changed Come back and tell me why Im feeling like Ive missed you all this time And meet me there tonight And let me know that its not all in my mind I just wanna know you better Know you better, know you better now I just wanna know you, know you, know you Cause all I know is we said, Hello And your eyes look like coming home All I know is a simple name Everything has changed All I know is you held the door Youll be mine and Ill be yours All I know since yesterday Is everything has changed All I know is we said, Hello So dust off your highest hopes All I know is pouring rain And everything has changed All I know is a new found grace All my days, Ill know your face All I know since yesterday Is everything has changed"
"I know I’m probably better off on my own Than lovin a man who didn’t know What he had when he had it And I see the permanent damage you did to me Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic I wish it wasn’t 4am, standing in the mirror Saying to myself, you know you had to do it I know the bravest thing I ever did was run Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man And I know why we had to say goodbye Like the back of my hand And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man A better man I know I’m probably better off all alone Than needing a man who could change his mind At any given minute And it’s always on your terms I’m hanging on every careless word Hoping it might turn sweet again Like it was in the beginning But your jealousy, I can hear it now You’re talking down to me like I’ll always be around You push my love away like it’s some kind of loaded gun Boy, you never thought I’d run Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man And I know why we had to say goodbye Like the back of my hand And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man A better man Better man I hold onto this pride because these days it’s all I have And I gave you my best and we both know you can’t say that You can’t say that I wish you were a better man I wonder what we would’ve become If you were a better man We might still be in love If you were a better man You would’ve been the one If you were a better man Yeah, yeah Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man And I know why we had to say goodbye Like the back of my hand And I just miss you and I just wish you were a better man We might still be in love, if you were a better man Better man"
"Took a deep breath in the mirror He didnt like it when I wore high heels, but I do Turn the lock and put my headphones on He always said he didnt get this song but I do, I do Walked in, expecting youd be late But you got here early and you stand and wave I walk to you You pull my chair out and help me in And you dont know how nice that is, but I do And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid I think its strange that you think Im funny cause he never did Ive been spending the last eight months Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end But on a Wednesday in a café, I watched it begin again You said you never met one girl who Had as many James Taylor records as you, but I do We tell stories and you dont know why Im coming off a little shy, but I do But you throw your head back laughing like a little kid I think its strange that you think Im funny cause he never did Ive been spending the last eight months Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end But on a Wednesday in a café, I watched it begin again And we walked down the block to my car And I almost brought him up But you start to talk about the movies That your family watches every single Christmas And I want to talk about that And for the first time, whats past is past Cause you throw your head back laughing like a little kid I think its strange that you think Im funny cause he never did Ive been spending the last eight months Thinking all love ever does is break and burn and end But on a Wednesday in a café, I watched it begin again But on a Wednesday in a café, I watched it begin again"
"I was reminiscing just the other day While having coffee all alone, and Lord, it took me away Back to a first-glance feeling on New York time Back when you fit in my poems like a perfect rhyme Took off faster than a green light, go Hey, you skip the conversation when you already know I left a note on the door with a joke wed made And that was the first day And darling, it was good Never looking down And right there where we stood Was holy ground Spinning like a girl in a brand new dress We had this big wide city all to ourselves We blocked the noise with the sound of, I need you And for the first time, I had something to lose And I guess we fell apart in the usual way And the storys got dust on every page But sometimes, I wonder how you think about it now And I see your face in every crowd Cause darling, it was good Never looking down And right there where we stood Was holy ground Tonight, Im gonna dance For all that weve been through But I dont wanna dance If Im not dancing with you Tonight, Im gonna dance Like you were in this room But I dont wanna dance If Im not dancing with you It was good Never looking down And right there where we stood Was holy ground Tonight, Im gonna dance For all that weve been through But I dont wanna dance If Im not dancing with you Tonight, Im gonna dance Like you were in this room But I dont wanna dance If Im not dancing with you"
