I need you, love I need you, love, I need you I need you, love, I need you When I think about how I felt I just sit there while my ice cream melts I just put myself upon a shelf I can't think about nothing else I need you, love, I need you I need you, love, I need you I can't even open a book Without thinking about Sam Cooke That's just how strong my love was And now my heart is just moldy fuzz... I can't remember things before those days And I can't forget your face Nothing here can change those ways And nothing else can take your place I need you, love, I need you I need you, love, I need you I need you, love, I need you I need you, love, I need you...

I'm feeling tired sitting on this couch and doing nothing So little has been done but it seems my brain has snapped and frozen I should burn down the house I need to kill the blank spot in my neurotic transmission I should burn down the house And will feel better… And we will feel better It's funny when I'm where I wanna be I get gripped in satisfaction until I realize I'm far from me I should burn down the house Just for a little blank spot in my neurotic transmission I should burn down the house And try to remember Oh, this song might be the fire I'll light Sweet emptiness soon I will be your prisoner no more I will sit lethargic no more It will fill up the blank spots in my head The ones that make me forget everything I apologies for what I have not been Sitting there but being gone Can I forgive myself for all that I have never done I will burn down the house And light a little blank spot in my neurotic transmission I 'll just burn down the house And we'll be better

Tale of a familiar old man He would sit there drinking tea With a fat cat on his knees to say I remember Those times when I was young It a shame time is on the run But I remember the flavors, And I remember the colors Broken backs and broken vans Stupid jokes, our left arms tanned all that I remember The food, shelter and kindest hands I'm so grateful to all of them I do remember their flavors And I remember their colors And if I lie sometimes It's cause I'm checking my mind I 'm trying to rewind To get your face and name right So if I did forget your names Your faces curse my brains The day and time we met eachother The snacks and laughs we shared together We're still around today The most important things will always stay Remembering the colors Remembering the flavors And if I lie sometimes It's cause I'm checking my mind I 'm trying to rewind To get your face and name right Did you notice that I was trying from the start when we were laughing I hope not But does it really matter If the good is still remembered He would sit there drinking tea With a fat cat on his knees to say I remember Those times when I was young It a shame time is on the run But I remember the flavors, And I remember the colors The sunrise…there's been plenty My memory…just isn't as precise as it should be
