Introduction

Let me hear it
Let me hear it


The Dance

Gone
Our dreams of second houses
Rising from the ashes were naive
It's wrong
To still feel spiteful
For all the tricks
You pulled out of your sleeve
I'll miss the dinners and
I'll miss the sinners
But the thought of you succeeding
Makes us sick

Gone
But not forgotten
The shit that you put us through
While smiling in the rear view

chorus:
I'm waiting (waiting)
For the dance
I'm waiting (waiting)
For the dance
I'm hoping (waiting)
Won't be the last chance
I'm waiting (waiting)
For the dance

Gone
Our youth supported
By late night jokes
On drives through the southeast

Gone
But not forgotten
Jilted in the corner
A loner
A goner

chorus

Gone
Thanks Epic Records
Our confidence was
Never laid so low

Gone
And it feels rotten
Standing in the corner
A loner
A goner

chorus

Waiting (waiting)
Sick of
Waiting (waiting)
Sick of
Waiting (waiting)
I'm tired of
Waiting (waiting)


Don't Call Her

It takes
Everything from me
It aches
Everytime I see
The smiles
Never reach her eyes
The sorrow
Everytime she tries
Each breath
Weighs a million stones
Mere feathers
Are skin and bone
Each beat
Of this breaking heart
It threatens
To break it apart

chorus:
But please don't call her
Across that water
And I won't say
It came from me

If I sailed
Oceans alone
If I gave up
Everything I own
If I crawled
For a thousand miles
Can I keep her
Just for a while

chorus

My heroes all are
Getting smaller
And I need some
That I can keep

It takes
Everything from me
It aches
Everytime I see
Everytime I see

chorus

My heroes all are
Getting smaller
And I need some
That I can keep

My heroes all are
Getting smaller
And I need some
That I can keep


Heart Like An Eskimo

The snow was late
Road crews stood ready
While the weatherman sealed his fate
Missed by 12 hours
I find that I
Can't look into your eyes
Until the storm goes by

chorus:
When it's cold outside
That's where I'll be
Behind my smile you'll never see
When it's cold outside
That's where I'll go
Brittle heart like an eskimo

My boots were dry
They kept me warm and safe
The salt trucks just flew by
I know you hate this place
I find that I
Can't look into your eyes
Until the storm goes by

chorus

This drink's to all second chances
This one's to storms and romances
I know you don't want to stay
But I just felt the first flake

chorus:
When it's cold outside
That's where I'll be
Behind my smile you'll never see
When it's cold outside
That's where I'll go
The only thing I've ever known

chorus
