itís nothing, itís so normal
you just stand there I could say so much
but I donít go there cuz I donít want to
I was thinking if you were lonely
maybe we could leave here and no one would know
at least not to the point that we would think so

everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking about somebody else
itís best if we all keep it under our heads
I couldnít tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do
but Iím lonely now, and I donít know how
to get it back to good

this donít mean that, you own me
this ainít no good, in fact itís phony as hell
but things worked out just like you wanted too
if you see me out you donít know me
try to turn your head, try to give me some room
to figure out just what Iím going to do

and everyone here, hates everyone here for doing just like they do
itís best if we all keep this quiet instead
and I couldnít tell, why everyone here was doing me like they do
but Iím sorry now, and I donít know how
to get it back to good

everyone here, is wondering what itís like to be with
somebody else
everyone hereís to blame, everyone here
gets caught up in the pleasure of the pain, everyone hides
shades of shame, but looking inside weíre the same, weíre the same
and weíre all grown now, but we donít know how to get it back to good

everyone here, knows everyone here is thinking Ďbout somebody else
itís best if we all keep this under our heads
I couldnít tell, if anyone here was feeling the way I do
but itís over now, and I donít know how, itís over now
thereís no getting back to good


I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the rain
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come see them when I'm...done,
When I'm done

I wonder what it's like to be a super hero
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly arounddowntown
From some other planet,
I get this funky high on yellow sun
Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned,
They're stunned

(Chorus)

Straight up, what did you hope
To learn about here
If I were someone else,
would this all fall apart
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig,
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me

I wonder what it's like to be the head honcho
I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said
I'd shout out an order,
I think we're out of this man get me some
Boy don't make me wanna change my...tone,
My tone

(Repeat Chorus)

Please don't change,
Please don't break the only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please don't change,
At all from me to you, and you to me

(Repeat Chorus)


She says it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She's always worried about things like that
She says it's gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining

(chorus)
She says baby
It's 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain's gonna wash away I believe it

She's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing
And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all
She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining

(chorus)

She believes that life is made up of all that you're used to
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it's stopped raining

(chorus)


She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough.
I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in,
And I don't know if I've ever been really loved,
By a hand that's touched me,
And I feel like something's gonna give,
And I'm a little bit angry.
Well, this ain't over, no, not here,
Not while I still need you around.
You don't owe me, we might change,
Yeah, we just might feel good.

(chorus)
I wanna push you around,
Well, I will,
Well, I will,
I wanna push you down,
Well, I will,
Well, I will,
I wanna take you for granted,
I wanna take you for granted,
Yeah, yeah, well, I will.

She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me,
Like I'm a little untrusting,
When I think that the truth is gonna hurt ya,
And I don't know why you couldn't just stay with me.
You couldn't stand to be near me,
When my face don't seem to want to shine,
'Cause it's a little bit dirty.
Well, don't just stand there, say nice things to me,
'Cause I've been cheated, I've been wronged,
And you, you don't know me,
Yeah, well, I can't change.
I won't do anything at all.

(chorus)

Oh, but don't bowl me over.
Just wait a minute, well, it kinda fell apart,
Things get so crazy, crazy.
Don't rush this baby, don't rush this baby, baby.

(chorus)
