You Were Right Lyrics

You Were Right (2013)

 

"It's Your Choice"

Yeah. 
It’s your choice, you can do what you want to. 
And it’s my life, I can’t just take care of you. 
All this time, I thought I’d get to know you. 
But in my mind, I thought that I could show you. 
To make it work, you gotta know who you are. 
Because looks alone it only gets you so far, yeah. 
What I need, whatever nasty habit. 
Give to me, and I’ll reach out and grab it. 
To make this work, you gotta know who you are. 
Good looks alone will only take you so far, yeah. 
Don’t do it baby, you just have to favor me. 
We’re not in the movies or a scene on TV. 
How can I love you? 
If I can never tell if anybody’s in there or just an empty shell? 
It’s your choice, you can do what you want to. 

 

"Rejuvenate Me" 


I know that you could help me make it through this ordeal, 
But I’m too lazy to make it work, too scared to steal. 
I feel like a joke, a waste of space, I feel like the punch lines on my face. 
Resuscitate me, be the one that can save me when nobody else can save me. 
Rejuvenate me, be the one that can change me when nobody else can change me. 
Better to say it then to keep it all inside 
But how can I say it if it only makes me cry. 
And I need a little help, but I’m too proud 
It’s easy to know it but to say it out loud. 
Resuscitate me, be the one that can save me when nobody else can save me. 
Rejuvenate me, be the one that can change me when nobody else can change me. 
Baby, baby. 
Rejuvenate, rejuvenate me baby. 
Resuscitate me, be the one that can save me when nobody else can save me. 
Rejuvenate me, be the one that can change me when nobody else can change me. 
Resuscitate me, be the one that can save me when nobody else can save me. 
Rejuvenate me, be the one that can change me when nobody else can change me, baby. 

 

"As of Tonight"


It’s you I blame, cause I don’t think you want to change 
 You’ll always stay the same, just not happy without feeling some pain 
You believe that I’ll always be there 
Never leave you think I wouldn’t dare 
I need something more, but I’ve said it before 
I’m leaving for good as of tonight 
I’m leaving for good as of tonight 
I just might 
As of tonight 
If there’s someplace you’d like to be 
Someplace other than in my company 
Who am I to disagree 
So go on, I’ll set you free 
You say you need a little more than routine 
Space to breathe and a mere change of scene 
I’m not going to fight, but I think that you’re right
So you’re out on your own as of tonight 
As of tonight 
So goodnight 
As of tonight 
Show me the door 
It’s become such a bore 
I’ve made up my mind 
As of tonight 
As of tonight 
I just might 
As of tonight 
You were right 
You were right 
You were right 

 

"Diamond"

I want to be the one 
I don’t ever want to be set free 
I don’t need to see the sun 
Lock me up and throw away the key 
There laying in the stones buried with the bones, a diamond in the rough 
You told me it was true, staring back and you now, I can’t get enough 
I don’t mind being tossed around 
Be your play thing, be your dog (doll?) 
I don’t need to hear a sound 
Just your heart once and awhile 
There laying in the stones buried with the bones, a diamond in the rough 
You told me it was true, staring back and you, now I can’t get enough
I want to take you home 
And feel this way every day 
I can’t do it on my own 
I’d do anything just to make you stay 
I don’t need to see the sun 
Lock me up and throw away the key 
There laying in the stones laying with the bones, a diamond in the rough
You told me it was true, staring back and you now, I can’t get enough 

 

"Long Term Goal"


You fell asleep on the couch in the middle of the afternoon. 
You woke up to find that the sun had been replaced by the moon. 
It’s a drag now when all your friends cannot be reached by phone. 
But you sat down like your missing out because no one’s home. 
Have you got a long term goal? 
Is it only rock and roll that you live for? 
Under the gun is the only way to get shi* done, don’t you know. 
You got all the time in the world, but nothing to show. 
It’s a get rich quick scheme for which some would sell their soul. 
Wait for the pipedream, take your sorry ass and fall back in the hole. 
Have you got a long term goal? 
Is it only rock and roll that you’re born to play? 
And you’re just getting by with a silver tongue, you don’t have to try. 
It’s one to invent but I for one am not impressed. 
No I am not impressed. 
When the spring comes, and the sun is out, you find yourself crazy. 
In the summertime, beneath the shady tree, just getting lazy. 
Come fall, when the air is crisp and the wind grows colder. 
You’re taking it all with a grain of salt, you’re just getting older. 

 

"I Don’t Wanna See You Anymore" 


I don’t wanna see you anymore. 
I’ve walked a whole straight through the floor. 
Waitin’ on someone who in fact, ain’t never coming back. 
It doesn’t really matter what you say, they’re only words, they fade away. 
Because of what you’ve put me through, well now there’s no forgiving you. 
You didn’t really mean, you didn’t really mean what you said.
When you were lying there, you were lying there in my bed. 
But I believe that you and I would make it through. 
You take the bad along with the good and you pull through, you pull through you. 
I don’t wanna see you anymore. 
No I don’t wanna see you, no, anymore. 
And I don’t wanna need you, like some sad and sorry fool.
Take a look at what you’ve done, such a careless hit and run. 
And I don’t think I’ll ever love again, you think you know someone and then. 
It starts the low sinking in, its just been a game to them. 
You didn’t really mean, you didn’t really mean what you said.
When you were lying there, you were lying there in my bed. 
But I believe that you and I would make it through. 
You take the bad along with the good and you pull through, you pull through you. 
And I don’t wanna see you anymore. 

 

"I’ll Never Tell" 


I’ll never tell how much I love you 
Never show much I care. 
I won’t speak a single solitary word. 
Until I’m well enough above you to say hello to you down there 
Well then and only then I’ll rest assured. 
And people say how can you be so cruel? 
Well it’s easy when you meet, and you’re always gonna be the exception to the rule. 
They say its only my foolish pride, that’s getting in the way. 
It’s the reason I say what I feel inside. 
I’ll never tell how much I love you 
Never show much I care. 
won’t speak a single solitary word. 
Until I’m well enough above you to say hello to you down there 
Well then and only then I’ll rest assured. 
And I’m happy just to sit with you like this and we don’t have to talk at all. 
I just enjoy the company especially when he or she is in it for the long haul. 
We could walk or we could swing, or we could not do anything at all. 
It’s neither here nor there, I don’t really care its your call. 
I’ll never tell how much I love you 
Never show much I care. 
I won’t speak a single solitary word. 
Until I’m well enough above you to say hello to you down there 
Well then and only then… 
I’ll never tell how much I love you, 
Never show how much I care. 
You won’t hear about it, you won’t see me cry. 
Until I’m well enough above you to say hello to you down there. 
I’m not sorry that I made you say goodbye. 

"Swallow You Whole" 


You took the paper and took away the pen 
You looked away as if to say “I’d do it all again” 
You broke your promise, you left it in a heap 
In a million pieces for someone else to keep 
For someone else to keep 
People cannot let let go, always got to be in control 
Evil from head to toe, they’ll open up and swallow you whole 
They’ll open up and swallow you whole 
My mother told me, she was very wise 
Some of your friends will turn on you the minute you close your eyes 
It’s better to keep your distance, than get involved 
With someone with a problem that never can be solved 
Never can be solved 
People who can’t let go, always got to be in control 
Evil from head to toe, open up and swallow you whole 
Open up and swallow you whole 
Open up and swallow you whole 
You took the credit where credit wasn’t due 
You’ve always got an angle it begins and ends with you 
Isn’t there something you can say that isn’t an attack 
I’d walk away but I’m afraid you’d shoot me in the back 
Shoot me in the back 
People who can’t let go, and always got to be in control 
Evil from head to toe, they’ll open up and swallow you whole 
People who can’t let go, always got to be in control 
Evil from head to toe, they’ll open up and swallow you whole 
Open up and swallow you whole 
Open up and swallow you whole 
Even try to poison your soul 
Even try to poison your soul 
Even try to poison your soul

 

"She's Trying to Poison Me"

 

She’s trying to poison me, she’s put something in my drink. 
And her long black hair is straight. 
She’s dying to question me, she puts a spoonful in the teeth.
And it makes me feel dizzy, she’s not even that pretty.
And her long black hair is straight. 
And I close my eyes and wait. 
And it’s not my kind of day. 
But it’s also kind of great. 
She’s trying to poison me, she’s not exactly the girl of my dreams. 
She’s dressed in pearls and suede. 
She takes me by the wrist, and I do nothing to resist her. 
Head back and laughter, don’t know what happened after. 
And her long black hair is straight. 
And I close my eyes and wait. 
And it’s not my kind of day. 
But it’s also kind of great. 
And her long black hair is straight. 
And I close my eyes and wait. 
And it’s not my kind of day. 

 

"Purely Automatic" 


When you’re rolling in your armored tank 
For what you’re about to receive you have me to thank 
But it’s not necessary from what i’ve seen 
You’re going to tell me what exactly what you mean 
If two can play at that game, it’s simple mathematics 
If you keep acting this way, then you create the static 
and I can be just the same, it’s so democratic 
(I guess I know?) that you think it’s lame but it’s purely automatic 
And now you say you don’t want to see me 
Like switching channels on the TV 
I’ve come to live with your acting (?) 
If I call off the search party now and you’ve got to tell them 
If two can play at that game, it’s simple mathematics 
If you keep acting this way, then you create the static 
and I can be just the same, it’s so democratic 
(I guess I know?) that you think it’s lame but it’s purely automatic... it’s purely automatic 
Just the other day I saw them laughing 
And then she passed him she wrote on her napkin 
You’d better make your move you’d better act fast 
Cause there’s no telling how long this could last 
If two can play at that game, it’s simple mathematics 
If you keep acting this way, then you create the static 
and I can be just the same, it’s so democratic 
(I guess I know?) that you think it’s lame but it’s purely automatic 
it’s purely automatic, purely automatic, purely automatic (repeat till end)

 

"New Words of Wisdom" 


You pretend to be there for me 
But in the end you’ll just ignore me 
And I can’t say what hurts me more 
The game you play or the final score 
But who and I to say these things 
To know how or why or what life brings 
And I made my bed so I think I’ll lie down 
And rest my weary head, cause it won’t be long now 
And I ain’t got the time, and I don’t have the patience 
For you or your kind and all your relations 
No new words of wisdom from an old friend of mine 
So you go your way and I’ll go mine 
And it pains me to say that it wasn’t our time 
But I’ll see you again on down that road 
And I’ll call you friend but we both know 
That a thousand years couldn’t heal these wounds 
And all our tears could fill these rooms 
And I ain’t got the time, and I don’t have the patience 
For you or your kind and all your relations 
No new words of wisdom from an old friend of mine 
And I ain’t got the time, and I don’t have the patience 
For you or your kind and all your relations 
No new words of wisdom from an old friend of mine 

 

"Oh My Love" 


She wrote to me and said in a letter 
That she wanted to see if she could do better 
She thought she could if only I’d let her 
And that’s where she stood for worse or better 
And I could not argue cause deep down I knew 
As much as it pained me, well I felt it too 
And oh my love we’ve got to be more careful in the future 
And know how much it helps to talk about it and let it out 
Yesterday I found a picture of me when I was a baby and I was to be 
A man with no home a drift in the sea, no plan of his own, so careless and free 
It makes me sad but then deep down I know 
That all not lost and there’s still room to grow 
And oh my love we’ve got to be more careful in the future 
And know how much it helps to talk about it and get it out 
We could be lovers or we could be friends 
Smother each other but that’s how it ends 
Could be the wrong words that mean everything 
Like two lonely song birds that don’t want to sing 
And it’s hard to swallow but deep down inside 
I know that it’s true and it can’t be denied 
And oh my love we’ve got to be more careful in the future 
And know how much it helps to talk about it and let it out 
And I’m so proud of the way we face the truth about our future 
And so my love what will we do without it? 
Do without it? 

 

The Fritz 
How long has it been since you were my lover? 
Can we just stay dead and talk to each other? 
Packin’ it in, callin’ it quits, because our love is on the fritz. 
Where did you go, on the cool clement? 
Don’t say no, give it one more chance. 
Packin’ it in, callin’ it quits, because our love is on the fritz. How long has it been since you were my lover? 
Can we just stay dead and talk to each other? 
Packin’ it in, callin’ it quits, because our love is on the fritz. 
Where did you go, on the cool clement? 
Don’t say no, give it one more chance. 
Packin’ it in, callin’ it quits, because our love is on the fritz. 

 

"Swimming" 

North of Shelby Town there’s a lake uncharted 
And from an (anchor?) town comes a boy whole hearted 
All his preparation so exhausting 
Built endurance makes him right for the crossing 
And not in winter time cause the lake’s all (lakes are?) frozen 
June is opportune so the date is chosen 
Take the tripod to raft for short filming 
It’s only small town news but to us he’s famous 
His declaration makes everyone think he’s the greatest 
All the way in record time 
All our eyes were glued to the waves that he made in an unnamed lake 
Follow the wake through record time 
All the while the camera’s collecting the take... all collecting the take 
It’s only us except for a lone man fishing 
Find a shady spot to lay out the provisions 
Puts his goggles on for underwater vision 
As he breaks the glass into water with diver’s precision 
He’s one ambitious boy, an olympic tradition 
All the way in record time 
All our eyes were glued to the waves that he made in an unnamed lake 
Follow the wake in record time 
All the while the camera’s collecting the take 
Ah Ah 
Do do do do do , do do do do do do do 
4x 
All the way in record time 
All our eyes were glued to the waves that he made in an unnamed lake 
Follow the wake in record time 
All the while the camera’s collecting the take... ah, collecting the take 
All our eyes were glued to him

 

"Red White and Blues" 


I don’t know what’s gotten into me 
And I don’t know what’s possessed my mind 
But I’m in need of some therapy, just give me something to help me unwind 
Doctor says I’ve got to lay off the booze, 
His diagnosis; the red white and blues 
Red white and blues 
Line em up in a single file 
Lay them down in neat little rows 
I don’t really care, whatever style 
Wrap them up with little bows 
Ever since I could tie my own shoes 
I’ve learned to live with the red white and blues 
The red white and blues 
Baby maybe I should meditate 
And see if I can’t collect my thoughts 
Focus in, try and concentrate 
Or just get out and try and walk it off 
Cause every good thing I use and abuse 
I got to suffer the red white and blues 
The red white and blues 
I don’t want to hear the evidence 
I don’t want to hear what the judge has to say 
All it takes is some common sense 
If you’re going to make a clean get away 
I nearly died when I heard the news 
A life sentence of the red white and blues 
But I really tried, and here I stand accused 
My only crime, the red white and blues 
Red white and blues 
Red white and blues 
Red white and blues
