So I met the boy I’ve always dreamed of at a party at my friend Cristina’s there I was trying to numb my pain when this God among men came up and told me his name He had everything I knew he would He said everything I thought he should but my hedonistic mind it was stoned by all I’d consumed, so now I’ve blown it with my Stumblin' and fumblin’ and my mumblin’ and fumblin’, and my stumblin' He was trying to talk to me but I could not speak to prove that I’m the best girl that he ever will meet, instead I was that girl who should have just said no and I turned it all into quite a show, with my Stumblin' and fumblin’ and my mumblin’ and fumblin’, and my Stumblin' It figures that I’d go and blow my chance with the only boy that I’d say yes to a dance and the only boy who’s ever stirred this heart, I knew I’d know him but now I won’t start I’d give up all self-medicating to see him again to have another chance to show him who I really am to see if there’s a reason why I’ve always seen his face when I close my eyes oh god can I erase all of my Stumblin,and fumblin’ and my mumblin’ and fumblin’, and my Stumblin’, lalalala hmmmdadadada hmmmmdadadada hmmmdadadadadada Lalalalala Lalalalala Lalalalala

Woe is me I'm in purgatory Cause yesterday I died. Got blown up on a bus somewhere While I was overworked and tired. They told you on the news it was a man From a distant land. You took it in as truth, Cause it's easier To believe. Oh, how I wasted my time Oh, how I wasted my time It's all about controlling, The masses with fear. That's one good thing about this death of mine, It's made all this shit quite clear. My loved ones cry cause they dont' know why I Had to die in vain. In limbo with the truth And all I can do is pray. Hallelujah Hallelujah As this line gets closer to those Famous gates, And the time draws near for me to be judged For my mistakes. There's one that haunts me the most. Now that I see all I could have changed. It's how I wasted my time. Oh how I wasted my time. So Raise your hands in the air. Say a little prayer, for me. Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Oh how I wasted my time.

Sunday at the diner I was having a cup of tea but happy was killed when I heard my ex-honey I saw him with a girl, they were holding hands I was halfway under the table when I heard him say It’s alright if you trust me It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby I promise I won’t go there Well I hid there stupified in my disbelief Cause that crazy son of a bitch had said the same to me and I let down my guard, I just let him inside What he wanted he got with a simple line It’s alright if you trust me It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby I promise I won’t go there When he left I thought the fault must be mine Now I see he uses this routine all the time We’ve all been stung, by the love scorpion I’ll alway hope that’s why I believe Sunday at the diner with my hot hot cup of tea I could scald his stupid face or tell her he said the same to me Now I know I’ve changed and found happy on my own I’ve got to trust again cause they aren’t all like him he’s not the first and he won’t be the last to say It’s alright if you trust me It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby I promise I won’t go there It’s alright if you trust me It’s ok if you care, I know someone has hurt you baby I promise I won’t go there

Down deep in the thick of it I reach for your hand and I pray That I can find you wash the dark away And once healed you'll stay Are you a victim of our times of video games and sugar Daddy worships the TV and momma she's got Jesus Here's some Ritalin to fix you We're not quite sure what it will do Hey now, hey now I cried all day Dropped you off in a dark parking lot With nothing more to say To a little boy lost, lost without his light What has happened to the sweet little baby I once knew You grew up so fast I missed my chance to say something wise to you Hey now, hey now I cried all day Dropped you off in a dark parking lot With nothing more to say To a little boy lost, lost without his light

It’s cool we’re broke, you joke, that you like life this way Besides the struggle will make us stronger You rip through my walls and fall down deep into me Am I weak cause I couldn’t hold them longer? You think you never loose, well I’m here to tell you, The truth wants out, if you’re not happy please just go I’m not afraid to be alone, just show me your eyes and I’ll know Look up, Look up, Look up at me Look up, Look up and say it again to me Look up, Look up so I can see If you are lying once again to me I know you so like myself I know you always want more Then the fights at night when you come home late again And you’re fascinated by the floor Look up, Look up, Look up at me Look up, Look up and say it again to me Look up, Look up so I can see If you are lying once again to me You think you’ll never loose, well I’m here to tell you, The truth wants out, if you’re not happy please just go I’m not afraid to be alone, just show me your eyes and I’ll know Look up, Look up, Look up at me Look up, Look up and say it again to me Look up, Look up so I can see If you are lying once again to me

I know a boy, a pretty boy He thinks a lot of himself, if you were drowning he’d never help you Then one day, I was talking to him by a mirror I thought it be fun to count how many times he looked at himself One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven I know a girl, a lovely girl She has a boy that won’t let go, he cries and cries I love you so Then one day we spied him down on the street We started to count how many times he walked by her house One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven What’s the connection? is it coincidence? am I sane? Every time I start to count it always ends up the same Maybe there’s something to this numerology One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven I have a brother & he's a very bad, bad boy It seems he can’t be helped, only in it for himself Then one day our momma said that’s it no more Cause she started to count how many times she'd bailed him out One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Eleven

I just figured out what is wrong I had misread you all along and I don’t need to understand why As you use your charms to get you by Comeback and see me when you grow up Comeback and see me when you grow up Comeback and see me when you grow up Comback when you growup I can’t blame you cause you don’t know or if you do you don’t let it show I need to stop trying to understand why You won’t ever change or even try You said it was all for fun and I’m not the only one that holds your adoration The fool is me, but in time we’ll see, if you ever could possilby Comeback and see me when you grow up Comeback and see me when you grow up Comeback and see me when you grow up Baby, Comback if you growup Oh darling dry your eyes Are these all the games you have left to try? You won’t win cause you don’t know You have so much to give but so far to go You said it was all for fun and I’m not the only one to hold your adoration The fool is me, but in time we’ll see, if you ever possibly could come back to save me Maybe baby you could Comeback when you grow up Comeback when you grow up If you ever grow up

I was rigid against the wall I didn’t think it through at all Then I tried to escape the blame And you knew I didn’t want to Loose myself in you But it’s just so goddamn easy Lady Libertina she told me it’s a spiral these lessons she brings In the cold car of the light rail I realized you were the nail And I’d driven you in myself And you knew I didn’t want to Loose myself in you But it’s just so goddamn easy Lady Libertina it’s a spiral she say these lessons she brings Wise Wise Lady I won't hide when you seek To teach this stubborn soul where to go Lady Libertina it's round and round and round come the lessons Lady Libertina she told me it's a spiral these lessons she brings Oh she brings lalalalalala oh oh oh oh oh

You know I never wanted to be the one who lost I never would have flaunted that kind of happiness costs I could have been the one to make her go away But just for one night cause she’s in your head to stay Why do we always want what we can never have? I just look at what she’s got and I understand she’s a Lucky girl Lucky girl Lucky girl to be yours If I didn’t have to glimpse or ever speak to you again I know I could convince my self that you were just a whim But circumstance butts in again to let me know I can look all I want but I can never own Why do we always want what we can never have? I just look at what she’s got and I understand she’s a Lucky girl Lucky girl Lucky girl to be yours To be loved like that, committing your heart and your mind Possibly the ultimate, those that do that are hard to find It would be so sad if life goes on and she never knows The sacrifices made in her name it goes just to show That we never want what we already have I wanna shake her hard to make her understand she’s a Lucky girl Lucky girl Lucky girl to be……. yours To be yours , to be yours, to be yours

Lola brings us pictures She’s colored by herself You take her in your arms And I loose myself All the children love you And they’re not the only ones I’m just hoping that my stubborn ways Don’t chase away this sun It’s just how I love you Just how I do It’s just how I love you And oh how I do I kinda thought this would be different You always hear it’s quite a show I’ve had all sorts of sparkle & fades But when I found you I came home It’s just how I love you Just how I do It’s just how I love you And oh how I do You came & broke these chains around this old heart They could have bound me forever You found good in me waiting to be set free And oh how you made it all better The way you really see me And I really see you It’s just how I love you Just how I do It’s just how I love you And oh how I do
