Fainting With Happiness

Don't Wake Me Up


Well if it seems like I've stopped breathing
Don't worry, Ma'am
If it seems like I'm always sleeping
That's because I am

Chorus
Don't wake me up
Don't wake me up
Give me money and fill my cup, but
But don't wake me up

Whenever life gets too confusing
The shit gets too deep
Whenever I can't win for losing
I fall fast asleep

Chorus

I never been to Oklahoma
It's quite nice they say
But I like being in a coma
Don't get out much anyway
And I couldn't care less what happens
While the twilight gleams
You just can't imagine
What happens in my dreams

Chorus



Antiques


She said, "Sit down and don't touch anything"
I did what I was told
And later that night we laid down on a bed
That was almost 200 years old

Chorus
Cause she lived in a house that was filled with antiques
Made by Egyptians , Italians and Greeks
She said she would call in a couple of weeks
But she never did

She said, "Sit down and don't touch anything"
I was as quiet as can be
And all the dead ancestors up on the wall
Looked down their noses at me

Chorus

She said, "Don't get too comfortable,
I'm used to sleeping alone"
When she put on a robe one worn by a queen
I knew it was time to go home

When she said, "We must do this again sometime"
I know she was just being nice
Something so scary and wonderful
Hardly ever happen twice

Chorus



It's Not Worth It


It's not worth it anymore
To go on pretending our life is the same as before
It's not worth it - can't you see
That I'm getting tired of you getting tired of me

Nothing I do ever seems to suit you
Done every page of the Kama Sutra
And you just turn away
More and more each day

Chorus
It's not worth it anymore
It's not worth it anymore
It's not worth it anymore
Anymore

It's not worth it - no it's not
To try and hold on to what little it is we've got
It's not worth it - to go on
When all of the things we assumed to be right turned out wrong
Something's changed and we can't deny it
The house is cold and it's awful quiet
'Cause no one ever speaks
For weeks and weeks and weeks

Chorus

I - I might cry
If I thought that it would do me any good
And you might cry too
Both of us would change things if we could

Chorus



Empty Man

guitar tab
He's an empty man
Completely hollow
He may beckon
Please don't follow
He will hurt you if he can
'Cause he's just an empty man

He's an empty man
He's got no stuffing
Cut him open
You'll find nothing
He's good looking tall and tan
But he's just an empty man

Behind his chiseled jaw and winning smile
There is no heart and in a while
You'll find out for yourself

He's an empty man
Filled with air
When you wake up
He won't be there
How can I make you understand
That he's just an empty man

Every single word that leaves his mouth
Is just a lie and that's about
The only thing I wanna say

He's an empty man
A blank expression
Got no answers
Only questions
No one knows what he has planned
He's just an empty man

He's an empty man
Filled with air
When you wake up
He won't be there
How can I make you understand
That he's just an empty man



You Will Never Know


Well the mood was right
When I saw you last night
But I hate myself today
For all the things I didn't say

You will never know
You will never know
You will never know the way I feel

Because the way I feel
Is so strong that it doesn't seem real
AAnd I'm so afraid
I might frighten you away

You will never know
You will never know
You will never know the way I feel
I could not reveal
That I love you so
You will never know

You will never know
'Cause my pride won't let my feelings show
It's my foolish pride
That makes me keep it all inside

You will never know
You will never know
You will never know the way I feel



Love Conquers


There's something in the air
That we can't see
It's in you - it's in me
It'll be here soon
Start walking tall
Let love conquer us all

The old folks back home
The young ones too
The tried and the true
The rich and poor
The big and small
Let love conquer us all

Let love come to your village
Let love come to your town
Let love come to your city
Take every body down

Let love come down like snowflakes
Let love come down like rain
Let love come down like fallout
Take away our pain

There'll be no pain, no jealousy
No hate and no misery
Those will be things we won't recall
When love conquers us all



Sun Rise


Just think of all we've been through
Remember how I love you and how I love you
Don't think of anything else
Try not to worry yourself with little things
That don't matter anymore
And everywhere you look
We'll see the sun rise
Rising even brighter than before
When the sun comes up you'll never
Have to worry anymore

Just think of all we've been through
Before you go out and do something rash
Though this might seem like the end
Someday you'll trust me again and I'll trust you
Love will grow once more
And everywhere we look we'll see the sun rise
Rising even brighter than before

When the sun comes up we'll never
Have to worry anymore
Everywhere we look
Everywhere we look we'll see the sun rise
Everywhere we look
Everywhere we look we'll see the sun rise




Little Pink Umbrella


Last night I saw you floating in the sky
Like an angel with a cocktail in her hand
Last night I saw you - you didn't stop to tell me why
You threw your little pink umbrella in the sand

Last night
Last night
I saw you in my dreams
I saw you in my dreams

Last night I saw you as you rose up from the sea
You were breathing fire and destroying Tokyo
Last night I saw you and I'm glad you didn't see me
'Cause you turned my heart to ashes long ago

Last night
Last night
I saw you in my dreams
I saw you in my dreams

Maybe they were nightmares
Bad dreams and nothing more
Maybe all this really happened
I can't say for sure

Last night
Last night
I saw you in my dreams
I saw you in my dreams



Can't You See that I'm in Love with You

guitar tab
Do you think that I'm always so out of my mind?
Do you think that I act like this all of the time?
Do you think that I am always blue?
Can't you see that I'm in love with you?

Does it look like I'm coming apart at the seams?
Does it look like I know what the word "desperate" means?
If you think it does, then it must be true
Can't you see that I'm in love with you?

I am, and it hurts a lot
Wishful thinking is all I got

So before I'm dismissed with a wave of your hand
Would your majesty stop and try to understand
You might find out what I'm going through
Can't you see that I'm in love with you?



Tough Life


She's the latest sadist in a long line
She's gonna make life miserable for a long, long time
That's how it's always been and it will always be
It's not an easy life for me

I've got a string of garlic hanging on my door
I really don't know why - it's never worked before
All the vampires get in here eventually
It's not an easy life for me

It's so hard to live this way
It's so hard to face another day this way

I'm a hard-luck story with no end
I'm an accident that happens again and again
I try so hard but I can't break free
It's not an easy life for me
It's not an easy life for me



In My Mind


In my mind
I can still remember when
We were young
We were so much younger then
We were hopelessly in love
But we ran out of time
But you're still in my mind

In my heart
I've got so much love to give
In my soul
I've got so much life to live
I look deep inside my head
But all I seem to find
Is you're still in my mind

After all these years
To my fate I am resigned
'Cause you're still on my mind

Everyday when my alarm clock rings
I get up
I do exactly the same things
And so my life goes on
I guess I'm doing fine
But you're still on my mind



Say Yeah


You're the apple of my eye
You're the grapes of my wrath
You're the trick up my sleeve
You're the feather in my cap
I used to feel strange
I used to feel confused
But everything changed
The minute I saw you

Now I've got the courage of my convictions - don't I?
I'll keep moving in the right direction - won't I?
And don't I always love you just they way you wanna be loved, baby, don't I?

You're the angel of the morning
You're the devil in disguise
Better wake up little Susie
Look at Lucy in the sky
I've waited all my life
To find someone just like you
Now I don't need a doctor
To tell my troubles to

Now I've got the courage of my convictions - don't I?
I'll keep moving in the right direction - won't I?
And don't I always love you just they way you wanna be loved, baby, don't I?

I've got the world in the palm of my hand - don't I?
I will accomplish everything I ever planned - won't I?
And don't I always love you just they way you wanna be loved, baby, don't I?

So if you could
Say something kind
To reassure me and ease my mind
So that I know you really mean it
When you say
Say yeah



When You Gonna Love Me


When you gonna call
When you gonna write
When will I be able
To sleep at night
When you gonna love me
When you gonna love me

Yes or no
When you gonna chose
When will I know
If I win or I lose
When you gonna love me
When you gonna love me

I won't wait forever
Oh yes I will - 'til the end of time

What did I do
What did I say
Why must you
Go on this way
When you gonna love me
When you gonna love me

I won't wait forever
Oh yes I will - 'til the end of time

What did I do
What did I say
Why must you
Go on this way
When you gonna love me
When you gonna love me
