It's Over 02:06
Misty rain and the groaning train Eleven nights and days gone by Her fifteen minutes of fame have fallen From a dark and cloudy sky She's making the most of a strange thing And she knows it's the least she can do A brand new flat and a good luck cat To help her find the wherewithal Heading blind to the other side Like walking through a waterfall It's so hard to let go of what's over But she's gotta make space for the new Come on! Oh yeah! She know's it's over! It's all over!

I'm so shy I try to socialize It drains me nearly dry But tonight It felt so easy and I Lost my sense of time I'm pleased with myself So pleased with myself So glad not to be alone Riding into day Red-eyed dawn Red-eyed dawn Diving deep Then flitting like two skipping Stones across the night Laughing hard A little out of our heads But it's alright We're pleased with ourselves Our barriers fell As fast as the drinks were strong Riding into day Red-eyed dawn Red-eyed dawn The morning star reflected in our tired eyes Real life is waiting for us on the other side I'm pleased with myself So pleased with myself So glad not to get it wrong Riding into day with Red-eyed Dawn Red-eyed Dawn Red-eyed Dawn Goodbye gone D - G - D - G -D - G - D - G D - D/C# - D/B - D/A - Em - G D - D/C# - D/B - D/A - Em - G D - G - D - G D - A - G Bm -E D - G - D - G -D - G - D - G D - D/C# - D/B - D/A - Em - G D - D/C# - D/B - D/A - Em - G D - G - D - G D - A - G Bm -E D - G - D - G -D - G - D - G Am - G - D - A C - G - D - A D - G - D - G D - A - G Bm -E D - G - D - G -D - G - D - G - D - G -D

Tattoo 02:35
Late at night, after everything gets bleary, I turn off my phone and crawl in bed. 'Cause I know that it would be too easy to say all the things in my head. Ooooh, I try to stay in motion but I can't shake my devotion to you... have stained my heart like a tattoo. Say the word; I'll get up and come right over. You don't even need to say why. Yeah, I know that you play me like a piano, but your melodies get me so high! Ooooh, I try to stay in motion but I can't shake my devotion to you... have stained my heart like a tattoo. You don't care for me, it's true, but I just want to be with you.

The bridges of 1987 are lifting all around Stronger than those of newer vintage, thick and rich in sound They only happen once but they snare you in their traps The bridges of 1987 will never, ever collapse Do you remember what we did back then? I have doubt, I blocked it out Was that the greatest time of life back then? I think not, those days can rot But when I have the strangest of emotions That I can't resist rhyming with "oceans" It's because I hear a song blaring from a speaker above And I know what year it's from The bridges of 1987 are lifting all around Stick like honey to synaptic towers, hooks so tightly bound The great ones don't repeat, they need no exit map The bridges of 1987 will never, ever collapse Do we need to dwell in history? Rewrite it, no - let it go Recollections reek of fakery My tight throat can't find the notes That can properly spell out my real feelings You'll find more poise in a group of pre-teens They're the ones who hear new songs The ones to which we don't respond But you know one day will wind them up This is why we are doomed to repeat the past The bridges of 1987...
