THE JUNIOR VARSITY lyrics - Wide Eyed

If You Could Paint Your Own Vacation Where Would You Go?

Original and similar lyrics
I'm going to be with you i said And what it had to come to I wanted to look and feel like you And stand up as straight as arrows I'll never really catch you I gave my warning But oh when I do I thought i'd really catch you I'm holding on I stopped trying so hard And forgot i've finally come so far (i've come so far) Hold your head up high I've picked up on the basics And started on the exit I've thought of everything I can This knife, a rope, a match I swear, I swear I'm thinking of you I'm letting go at last This must be perfect I will accept no less in my own death I hope that you come through I stopped trying so hard And forgot i've finally come so far (i've come so far) Hold your head up high I've picked up on the basics And started on the exit Subsequently, I can sleep all day So get back to me "And I know the meaning to life," he screamed But you will die before you speak We're growing, how have we stunted? So what should he do to get back to me?

I Will Hold My Head High

THIRD DAY "Wire"
Sometimes the night starts closing in And I've lost my way home again I'm running out of places I can turn Enemies on every side Not a friend around for miles That's the time it really starts to hurt Beat me up and drag me down I'll never be afraid I will hold my head high Lift my hands to the sky Rise above all who try to bring me down I will hold my head high I know you said it'd be okay Sometimes I question just the same I wonder if my problems are too small Then I look back and realize All your pain and sacrifice Oh and how you suffered for us all Beat me up and drag me down I'll never be afraid I will hold my head high Lift my hands to the sky Rise above all who try to bring me down I will hold my head high Beat me up and drag me down And lock me in or keep me out Whatever they may throw at me I'll turn into a song for you I will hold my head high Lift my hands to the sky Rise above all who try to bring me down I will hold my head high

Lio

RICK SPRINGFIELD "Shock/Denial/Anger/Acceptance"
LIO they say you haven't made it Until you got that favor I can't help it hurts me The pen cuts like a razor Too bad if they kick you in the face They draw blood you can put in your pen And you write again Oh what a disappointment, LIO I thought that you would go the distance, my...oh... Anticipation was a little high, oh... You were low, low, low, low, LIO Symbols spread across the pages I play electric wires I've got rhythms in my head And irons in the fires It don't hurt the process But they did leave a scar on the face of the fighter Who'll fight again Oh what a disappointment, LIO I thought that you would go the distance, my...oh... Anticipation was a little high, oh... You were low, low, low, low, LIO My world, which lives inside of my head No where else but my head And I'm the one who puts the limitations on it They said you belong in this line over here No thanks, I'm not that weak And the music will speak again Oh what a disappointment, LIO I thought that you would go the distance, my...oh... Anticipation was a little high, oh... You were low, low, low, low, LIO You were low, low, low, low, LIO You were low, low, low, low Humans walking around in cages We build with our own hands Looking for the turning point that waits outside...

The Temptation Of Adam

JOSH RITTER "The Historical Conquests Of Josh Ritter"
"If this was the Cold War we could keep each other warm." I said on the first occasion that I met Marie We were crawling through the hatch that was the missile silo door And I don't think that she really thought that much of me I never had to learn to love her like I learned to love the Bomb She just came along and started to ignore me But as we waited for the Big One I started singing her my songs And I think she started feeling something for me We passed the time with crosswords that she thought to bring inside What five letters spell "apocalypse" she asked me I won her over singing "W.W.I.I.I." Oh, we smiled and we both knew that she'd misjudged me Oh Marie, it was so easy to fall in love with you It felt almost like a home of sorts or something And you would keep the warhead missile silo good as new And I'd watch you with my thumb above the button Then one night you found me in my army issue cot And you told me of your flash of inspiration You said fusion was the broken heart that's lonely's only thought And all night long you drove me wild with your equations Oh Marie, do you remember all the time we used to take Makin' love and then ransack the rations I think about you leaving now and the avalanche cascades And my eyes get washed away in chain reactions Oh Marie if you would stay then we could stick pins in the map Of all the places where you thought that love would be found But I would only need one pin to show where my love's at In a top-secret location three hundred feet under the ground Oh, we could hold each other close and stay up every night Looking up into the dark like it's the night sky Pretend this giant missile is an old oak tree instead And carve our name in hearts into the warhead Oh, Marie there's something tells me things just won't work out above That our love would live a half-life on the surface So at night while you are sleeping I hold you closer just because As our time grows short I get a little nervous Oh, I think about the Big One, W.W.I.I.I. Would we ever really care the world had ended You could hold me here forever like you're holding me tonight I think about that great big button and I'm tempted

Baby That's Not All

JOSH RITTER "Hello Starling"
Fold yourself against Me like a paper bird Tonight we'll fly awhile Just give me the word And hold onto me Like I hold onto you A steeple holds a bell The night sky holds the moon Melting flakes of snow Will catch you when you fall Baby that's not all Then like falling stars Back down to sleep will go Into our waiting arms In orbits round the glow Cover lets and down Will catch you when you fall Baby that's not all
