I drew a heart on your name on your back seat windowpane You might not see it for weeks unless we finally get some rain I try not to think of you but I'm afraid that it's not possible You you're all the air I breathe, you all the light I see California Winter Close my eyes and all I picture How you came in warm and went out with a shiver California Winter Midnight stars like heaven's glitter Everything I am you make me reconsider Palm trees and power lines, shadows in the fuchsia sky I know your soul enough to find you in the afterlife Take from me what you will because everything I have is yours All of the air I breathe, all of the light I see California Winter Close my eyes and all I picture How you came in warm and went out with a shiver California Winter Midnight stars like heaven's glitter Everything I am you make me reconsider I drew a heart on your name on your back seat windowpane You might not see it for weeks unless we finally get some rain

If I cry out the color from my eyes Would it help me see this once in black and white? For a moment I could let down my defenses But the journey through your shades of grey are endless No resolution, yeah, but I still try Cause my love for you runs deeper than my pride If I beg for your forgiveness would you listen? Am I praying to a God or a magician? Whoah Show me the meaning of life - should the sky fall just before I get it right I've searched the city for human nature But all I found were a million strangers singing 'Whoah, show me the meaning! Show me the meaning of this life!' I give up my pretensions; accepted my truth I took a journey back to find it in my youth If the words I'm meant to live by have no author Then my blood should not run thinner than my water Whoah Show me the meaning of life - should the sky fall just before I get it right I've searched the city for human nature But all I found were a million strangers singing 'Whoah, show me the meaning!' I'll never get where I'm going if I'm too afraid of knowing I'll never get where I'm going if I'm too afraid of knowing Whoah Show me the meaning of life - should the sky fall just before I get it right I've searched the city for human nature But all I found were a million strangers

I used to be the one that you always ran too No one could hold you down the way that you knew I would Now you lay with me pretending that you're even near me I choose my words with caution cause I know that you don't hear me I should've known when I saw the signs, but I only looked away Maybe I held on a little too tight, maybe I held on a little too tight I don't know who you run to but I won't get in your way Somehow I guess I loved you too much too soon, too little too late Don't twist the knife so slowly, just make it painless Don't talk like you don't know me and don't act like you're so shameless Enjoy it while it lasts cause when you least expect it This might all come back around just to haunt you if you let it I should've known when I saw the signs, but I only looked away Maybe I held on a little too tight, maybe I held on a little too tight I don't know who you run to but I won't get in your way Somehow I guess I loved you too much too soon, too little too late It's all too little, too little too late I don't know who you run to but I won't get in your way Somehow I guess I loved you too much too soon, too little too late

I drove by place that we used to call home And my heart skipped a beat turning onto the road I thought about knocking but who would open the door? Did they find that broken promise that we carved in the floor? I've seen some of your pictures, seems like you're doing fine I'm keeping my distance but I'm frozen in time So let go of me, let go of me, you're not mine but I'm still yours Let go of me, you're controlling me, I can't go on like this no more Yeah I sound so lame but you've got me chained and I refuse to let you know I just wish you'd let go Yeah I'd call but I'm scared that you'll pick up the phone And I'm trying my hardest to leave you alone I thought about texting - would you leave it on read? I don't want to annoy you, I'll say nothing instead I feel like your puppet, you're pulling my strings I just want to ask you for one final thing So let go of me, let go of me, you're not mine but I'm still yours Let go of me, you're controlling me, I can't go on like this no more Yeah I sound so lame but you've got me chained and I refuse to let you know I just wish you'd let go Let go 'Cause I don't want to be the one to let go first Don't want to be the one, don't want to be the one Don't want to be the one to let go first, no Don't make me do it So let go of me, let go of me, you're not mine but I'm still yours Let go of me, you're controlling me, I can't go on like this no more Yeah I sound so lame but you've got me chained and I refuse to let you know I just wish you'd let go Let go Don't let me go Don't let me go

Hand on the bible I swear this is true I’m your disciple What you command I will do Just don’t ask me to leave now We can still make this work I’m down on my knees now Your heart is my church Your love is holier Holier than thou Your love is holier Holier than thou Whenever I stumble In all of my mistakes For you I am humble I bow in your grace I’m hardly an angel But you give me wings Without you I’m lost, so just name your cost I’ll die on your cross Cause your love is holier Holier than thou Your love is holier Holier than thou Down on my knees I will stay Unto your heart I will pray Cause your love is holier Holier than thou Your love is holier Holier than thou

And even though the moment passed me by I still can't turn away 'Cause all the dreams you never thought you'd lose Tossed along the way And letters that you never meant to send Get lost or thrown away (no, no) And now we're grown-up orphans That never knew their names We don't belong to no one That's a shame You could hide beside me Maybe for a while And I won't tell no one your name And I won't tell 'em your name I won't tell 'em your name Scars are souvenirs you never lose The past is never far Did you lose yourself somewhere out there? Did you get to be a star? And don't it make you sad to know that life Is more than who we are? You grew up way too fast And now there's nothing to believe And reruns all become our history A tired song keeps playing on a tired radio And I won't tell no one your name And I won't tell 'em your name Oh, no, I won't tell 'em your name
