Mine

 

By Late Night Alumni


 

It's obvious,

I know your name.

I read your words; they're the same.

Yours and mine could fall in love.

You know the words I'm thinking of.

 

I fell in love with a song.

Started out slow, came on strong.

Wrote it down and made it mine.

If I write it, it's my crime.

 

What's underneath,

the underneath?

You'll never know exactly what it means to me.

‘Cause yours and mine, it's just a vice.

I read the words. I read them twice.

 

I fell in love with a song.

Started out slow, came on strong.

Wrote it down and made it mine.

If I write it, it's my crime.

Float 

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

I don’t wanna fight

these feelings tonight.

They creep in the day,

I push them aside.

 

But when I’m alone,

emotions arise.

The moon at my back,

the tide in my eyes.

 

While we’re faking

the love we’re making,

this isn’t right.

This isn’t right

and I don’t wanna fight.

 

I try and you won’t.

I dance, you don’t.

I’m on and you float.

So tell me what’s happening.

I guess you know,

I hide you show.

We’ve lied enough so,

so tell me what’s happening.

 

I should have walked away, I

I shouldn’t have played your game.

I should have walked away, I

I knew better coming in.

 

Just holding it in

the back of your eyes.

You turn them away,

won’t look into mine.   (Continued Next Page…)

Don’t tell me the words 

I’m wanting to hear.

I beg for your truth, I

 fight through the fear.

Virtue

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

Say it like you mean it.

Say it like it's always been

something you believe in.

A story you'll tell again.

 

Never mind where my feet have never stepped;

the beds in which I've never slept.

Of all the little cuts and bits I've kept,

here, inject my intellect.  

 

I'm not gonna black and white it.

I want you to watch me fight it. 

Never mind what's behind it.

Burn and candlelight it

as I raise my hand to strike it. 

Shake my hand and like it. 

 

Underline the words right; 

something someone else has said. 

Marching to the edge, I'm 

wearing someone else's head.

 

What's mine is mine. 

What's yours is also mine.

I've told you so a thousand times. 

Of all the little here and there's I find,

this one I could claim as mine.

 

I'm not gonna black and white it.

I want you to watch me fight it. 

Never mind what's behind it.

Burn and candlelight it

as I raise my hand to strike it. 

Shake my hand and like it. 

White Bear 

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

Pale as a white light.

Hot like a dull knife.

Smoking like dry ice.

Counting to 5, then 10.

 

Sudden slow dive,

chasing a high.

I can feel it waiting underneath my eyes.

 

If you think you need something to hide,

you can take it over.

You can always borrow one of mine.

 

Weak, softly in the knees,

it's one of these.

Separate the colors I can't see.

Burning on my skin, pushing pins in, oh so slowly.

 

I sway side to side.

It's waiting to strike.

I can feel it boiling underneath my eyes.

 

If you think you need something to hide,

you can take it over.

You can always borrow one of mine.

Love Is A Knife

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

Lay down the new, my love.

Don't be afraid to lose.

The more we're cut, the more we grow.

Love is a knife.

 

Take more with me, my love.

Don't be afraid to show.

The more we feel, the more we know.

Love is a knife.

Hideout

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

You're fast asleep.

I'm watching you.

I think your eyes are closed.

I say what's in my soul.

 

I see you move.

You pull me close.

A subtle smile breaks through.

You say you love me too.  

 

It's true, Heaven is a hideout.

It's true, Heaven is a hideout.

 

Behind a cloud,

from up above;

like you're a place to go,

you pull me down below.

 

You shout it out,

I raise my voice.

It's what it's all about,

Heaven can help us now.

 

It's true, Heaven is a hideout.

It's true, Heaven is a hideout.

 

It’s true.





 

Poison

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

I'll take it to my grave.

I know the places you go.

And all the voices you wake up.

All the ways you run.

 

The words you said were meant to get me down.

You put on a lie but baby I found out.

You pass poison when I kiss your mouth.

I gave you all of me, you only gave me doubt.

 

The words you say were meant to bring me pain.

Bending like the rules; how you fixed the game.

You pass poison when you shift the blame.

Gave you all of me, then you gave me all away now.

 

You won't, you won't make me

love you how I used to love you.

 

Tight-lips, I see you change.

I see the demons inside,

and all the voices you wake up.

All the ways you hide.

 

The words you said were meant to get me down.

You put on a lie but baby I found out.

You pass poison when I kiss your mouth.

I gave you all of me, you only gave me doubt.

 

The words you say were meant to bring me pain.

Bending like the rules; how you fixed the game.

You pass poison when you shift the blame.

Gave you all of me, then you gave me all away now.

 

You won't, you won't make me

love you how I used to love you.


 

One Track Mind

 

By Late Night Alumni


 

You never call me when you're high.  

We never speak till you come down.

So if my ear is occupied,

it doesn't mean that I don't care.    

 

You say, you say I’ve got a one track mind.    

But that ain't true, I also think about you...sometimes.

You say, you say I’ve got a one track mind.

But that ain't true, I also think about you...sometimes.

 

I lead an ordinary life.

I wear a complicated style.

So if I lose track of the time,

it's not as simple as it seems.

 

You say, you say I’ve got a one track mind.    

But that ain't true, I also think about you...sometimes.

You say, you say I’ve got a one track mind.

But that ain't true, I also think about you...sometimes.

Wake Me Up

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

Wake me up before you leave me.

Softly now, before you go. 

Wake me up before you leave me.

Softly now, before you go. 

 

Wake me up. 

 

Wake me up before you leave me.

Softly now, before you go. 

Wake me up before you leave me.

Softly now, before you go.

 

Wake me up. 

Even as I Go

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

And even now

with you out.

With you out, 

even now

to break away from you.

 

I'm running, 

I'm running back.

I'm running back.

I don't remember where,

don't remember how

I lost.

 

Even as I go,

even as I fall.

Make it stay

like a shadow

burned on my soul.

Even though I know

I can never go back,

make it stay

like a shadow

burned on my soul.

 

I'm running out,

leaving town.

Leaving town.

I’m running.

It's what I had to do.

 

Take it back.

Can't take it back.

Can't take it back.

I don't remember where,

don't remember how.

I lost.

 

Even as I go,

even as I fall.

Make it stay  (Continued Next Page…)

like a shadow

burned on my soul.

Even though I know

I can never go back,

make it stay

like a shadow

burned on my soul.

 

 

 

 

 

Polaroid

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

Stop feeling, I'll stop breathing.

This melody just kissed my mouth.

Stop feeling, it'll take over.

That rhythm's gonna take me out.

 

Is what I'm hearing, hurting or healing?

Almost like taking

a Polaroid of my heart.

How can it see me? 

Flashes right through me.

I knew it would hurt before it hit...my ears. 

 

I sense something, underlying.

Lines, silver to the naked eye.

It whispers, I'm unmoving,

This ending's gonna fade me out.

The Same Eyes

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

I would be lying if I said 

I hadn't kept my fire that died.

All these years 

you know I’ve tried 

not to be inspired.

 

We have the same eyes.

 

Guess Again

 

By Late Night Alumni

 

I know for sure,

I don't know much more.

I'll keep telling you

everything will be alright,

even though...I don't know for sure.

 

There are things that we don't notice,

even when we stand here

looking 'round and 'round.

 

It falls just shy of coincidence.

'Cause I can't say that it will change,

but I can guess again.

 

Not for the world,

for nothing so pure,

will I stop hoping you

will still notice the sky

even though, it just rains sometimes.

 

There are stars we don't notice,

just 'cause we're down here...

running roundabout.

 

It falls just shy of coincidence.

'Cause I can't say that it will change,

but I can guess again.
