    Well, I've had my share of broken dreams,
    And more than a couple of falls.
    And in chasing what I thought were moonbeams,
    I have run into a couple of walls.
    But in looking back at the places I've been,
    And the changes that I've left behind,
    I just look at myself to find
    I've learned the hard way every time.

    'Cause I've had my share of good intentions,
    And I've made my share of mistakes.
    And I've learned at times it's best to bend,
    'Cause if you don't, well, those are the breaks.
    Should have listened to all the things I was told,
    But I was young and too proud at the time.
    Now I look at myself to find
    I learn the hard way every time.

    Then I'll take my clothes off
    And I'll walk around
    Because it's so nice outside
    And I like the way the sun feels
    And when it's dark
    I'll call out in the night for my mother
    But she isn't coming back for me
    Cause she's already gone
    But you will not tell me that
    Cause you know it hurts me everytime you say it
    And you know you're doing the right thing
    You must know you're doing the right thing

    All I ask is that you leave before I lose you
    Circumnavigate your grace as I stow away in the weather beaten doldrums
    of apathy and your forgiveness
    All I ask is that you walk the other way
    All I ask is that you leave before I lose you

    From the magnificent, wonderful Friends In America.

    Be In Love, by Friends In America

    Edit: I just copied and pasted the Bandcamp Link in, and it nicely typed it up like that instead of just dumping the URL. Nicely done @Jason Tate !

    Old man down, way down down, down by the docks of the city.
    Blind and dirty, asked me for a dime, a dime for a cup of coffee.
    I got no dime but I got some time to hear his story.
    My name is August West, and I love my Pearly Baker best more than my wine.
    More than my wine - more than my maker, though he's no friend of mine.

    Everyone said, I'd come to no good, I knew I would Pearly, believe them.
    Half of my life, I spent doin' time for some other fucker's crime,
    The other half found me stumbling 'round drunk on Burgundy wine.

    But I'll get back on my feet again someday,
    The good Lord willin', if He says I may.
    I know that the life i'm livin's no good,
    I'll get a new start, live the life I should.
    I'll get up and fly away, I'll get up and fly away, fly away.

    Maybe I would've been something you'd be good at
    Maybe you would've been something I'd be good at
    But now, we'll never know
    I won't be sad but in case I'll go there everyday
    To make myself feel bad
    There's a chance I'll start to wonder if this was the thing to do

    Car crash came and car crash went
    So I went along with it but
    The girl you love's not coming back
    It'll never be the same

    Oh, swing the door wide open;
    Show me your jaded eyes.
    I will turn them red,
    Drunk with vivid flame.
    You will see again,
    And you will learn your real name.

    coming around again
    making some space to mend
    gaining the strength to stand
    feeling the love again

    So can you trace this distance from me to you so I could etch this on my spine?
    Replace my face with just a blurry memory,
    you must be kidding me, my busted mouth,
    I've come to find less creative ways to speak my mind

    Oh wow. I've heard that song a million times, too, and somehow never realized how much I like those

    You're brought back but you're running
    I'll find sleep in the end tonight
    I can't shake this little feeling
    I'll never get anything right

    It's the one I've always heard/gone with, but this is so true. It's usually the second line that gets changed, yeah?

    So if I seem a little out of it, sorry.
    Why should I lie?
    Everything reminds me of her.

    The spin of the Earth impaled the silhouette of the sun on the steeple.
    And I've got to hear the same sermon all the time now from you people.
    "Why are you staring into outer space crying?
    Just because you came across it,
    Lost it?"
    Everything reminds me of her...

    First two. "You're burned bad, but you're running." You burn bright but you run out" "You're burned out but you're running" "I'll bet you're running (which is what Genius has but I don't here at all)"

    and then "find sleep in the end tonight/incline/alkaline," and "fell asleep in the end tonight/incline/alkaline"

    It was Don Delillo, whiskey neat, and a blinking midnight clock
    Speakers on a TV stand, just a turntable to watch
    And the smoke came out our mouths on all those hooded sweatshirt walks
    We were a stroke of luck
    We were a goldmine and they gutted us

    You may be Saturday's child all grown
    moving with a pinch of grace
    You may be a clown in the burying ground
    or just another pretty face
    You may be the fate of Ophelia
    sleeping and perchance to dream
    honest to the point of recklessness
    self centered to the extreme

    a twofer bc screw ur rules!!

    If you hear that same sweet song again, will you know why?
    Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passin' by,
    Laugh in the sunshine, sing, cry in the dark, fly through the night.
