Love and The Apocalypse

 "Mean"

by 8mm


Pick a line and I'll sing a song
Try to tell you I was wrong
And I'll play it slow and I'll sing it nice
Cuz you know I hate to say it twice

I say things I don't mean
You know that I'm kinda mean
You really shouldn't let me in, again tonight

Come on, baby, don't be mad
You know it's not always so bad
You like the game; movin' fast
I never said it was built to last

I say things I don't mean
You know that I'm kinda mean
You really shouldn't let me in
You know you shouldn't let me in
You really shouldn't let me in, again tonight

You know that you make me see
The best and the worst in me
You know that you make me do
Things that I can't believe are true
And you know that you do
And you know that you do
And you know that you do

I say things I don't mean
You know that I'm kinda mean
You really shouldn't let me in
You know you shouldn't let me in
You really shouldn't let me in, again tonight

"Life is Good"

by 8mm

Whenever I roam
I hear your heartbeat calling me home
Adventures high, mountains climbed
Your sighs keep me safe and warm

Shining waves and a distant shore
Lead me right back to your door
Big open skies and a shining star
Just light the way to where you are

It don't matter how far I've run
Cuz you'll be right there waiting
It don't matter how far I've come
You know just who I am
No matter how lost, how near, how far
I hear you calling me back

Wherever I go
I leave bread crumbs on the road
Paper planes and model cars
With jumps from Jupiter to Mars
Front seats and magic shows
Secrets kept and curtains closed
Claps and bows and your "Bravos!"
And you're the only one who knows

It don't matter how far I've run
Cuz you'll be right there waiting
It don't matter how far I've come
You know just who I am
No matter how lost, how near, how far
I hear you calling me back

Whenever I'm down
And black creeps in from all around
I know it's a fact
That you've always got my back
Pirate ships and dragon's lairs
They'll have to find someone who cares
Captain Hook and Mr. Smee
You know they'll have to get through me

It don't matter how far I've run
Cuz you'll be right there waiting
It don't matter how far I've come
You know just who I am
No matter how lost, how near, how far
I hear you calling me back

Life is good, even when it's hard
I hear you calling me back home

Na na na na

Life is good, even when it's hard.

Los Angeles

by 8mm

It draws the faithful to their knees
I'm begging, darling, darling, please
If you could just send me back home

I've watched the cars crash to the sea
I've walked the steps of you and me
So darling, darling, darling please
Send me back home
Back home
Send me back home

The cities burned, the ashen trees
I've seen the desert for what it is
Cold and hard and barely alive

We've drawn the faithful to their knees
Our demise will not be televised
If only we'd fought for our lives

Send me back home
Back home
Send me back home

(you'll know what is missing the minute it's gone)

We've drawn the faithful to their knees
Our demise will not be televised
If only we'd fought for our lives

Send me back home
Back home
Send me back home

Send me back home
