lyrics

I'd like to be the one who calls
All the shots but never falls
In love with you, in love with her.
As if it matters anymore.

I'd like to be the one to see
What you and I could truly be,
But like a flash that's burned too fast,
Just dedication never lasts.

You can call me, but I'm not here.
I'm not here.

It may be bold, but truth be told,
It feels as if I'm getting old.
That everything I once believed
Was only teenage fantasy.

I'd like to be another man,
The one you always say I am.
A sweet thing to say, but it's not true,
'Cause one and zero don't make two.

You can call me, but I'm not here.

I'd like to be the one to see
What you and I could truly be,
But like a flash that's burned too fast,
Just dedication never lasts.

You can call me, but I'm not here.
I'm not here.

Two as one, yet still alone.

These pure pop sounds find the “young and angry” pleasure center for which all of us lust. In the truest sense, they are at the leading edge of the next wave of the post-modern rock movement. ... more
