Lyrics

If You Call

Maggie Salamone/Chris Calamera


Fantasies of a boy in my head
Such a saint in my eyes
I remember all the things you said
Never quick to compromise
And all my regret kept me silent
I was so wrong

If you call I will run (She’s running away)
If you call I won’t hide (Fill the void, feel my pain)
When I hide don’t come find me (I have fallen from grace)
If you call I will run, Away, Oh, Away, Oh

You stay high while I kept going down
I was hooked when we met
I remember the times we drove around (All night)
I can still taste your sweat
And all my regret kept me silent
I was so wrong

If you call I will run (She’s running away)
If you call I won’t hide (Fill the void, feel my pain)
When I hide don’t come find me (I have fallen from grace)
If you call I will run, Away,
And I kept silent (Away)
You kept me slient

If you call I will run (She’s running away)
If you call I won’t hide (Fill the void, feel my pain)
When I hide don’t come find me (I have fallen from grace)
If you call I will run, Away
Taking it day by day (If you call I will run)
Taking it day by day (If you call I will run)
Taking it day by day (If you call I will run)
Taking it day by day (If you call I will run)
If you call I will run (She’s running away)
If you call I won’t hide (Fill the void, feel my pain)
When I hide don’t come find me, yeah

Exit 22's "Change My Mind", produced and mixed by the legendary Stuart Epps (Led Zepplin, Elton John, Robbie Williams)

 

Lyrics

You broke me, I left you, that's how it goes,
You want me, I hate you, everyone knows that it was you,

Who hurt me, who scarred me, who left me standing outside you,
Who told me, "I love you", you killed me from the inside

Say whatever you want, I won't change my mind, won't change my mind, no
I may be a mess, but that's just fine, won't change my mind

You took me, I shook you, we had some fun,
You changed me, I made you, two lives undone, but it was you

Who hurt me, who pushed me, who left me standing outside you,
Who told me, "I love you", you killed me from the inside

Say whatever you want, I won't change my mind, won't change my mind, no
I may be a mess, but that's just fine, won't change my mind

You broke me, I left you, that's how it goes
you want me, I hate you, everyone knows that it was you

Say whatever you want, I won't change my mind, won't change my mind, no
I may be a mess, but that's just fine, won't change my mind

Lyrics

 

Sitting on my bed with you I'm waiting, hoping for some
Assurance that you love me but there is none
I am leaving, you are pleading, dying inside
I have to go, don't worry, this is not goodbye

I'll find you if I ever need a reason to be sad
I'm through, I'll find a way to be happy without you
          
We go through this every night, it's your fault, my fault this time
I'm tired of all the fighting, we're just not right
I am leaving, you are pleading, screaming my name
I have to go, don't worry, I'll come back some day

I'll find you if I ever need a reason to be sad
I'm through, I'll find a way to be happy without you
Find you, if I ever need a reason to cry all night
I'm through, I'll find a way to be happy without you


It's hard to walk away from you
Even though I know that I am better off alone
Without you
                   
Happy without you (Happy without you)
Happy without you (Happy without you)
Happy without you (Happy without you)
Happy without you (Happy without you)
            
I'll find you if I ever need a reason to be sad
I'm through, I'll find a way to be happy without you
Find you, if I ever need a reason to cry all night
I'm through, I'll find a way to be happy without you


Happy without you
Happy without you

Lyrics

 

Remember you and me, those days are long gone,
But all the memories are coming back, back to me
A couple dollars to our name, didn't matter babe,
The only thing we ever needed was the flame,

The Flame, The Flame

Check out the old haunt, it seems so empty,
They got new regulars, along the way
A couple dollars in the juke, lasting all day,
Not to mention that we always had the flame,

The Flame, The Flame

We were all so young, but it was oh so fun,
Even though we both got hurt, when it was said and done,

Remember you and me, those days are long gone,
But all the memories are coming back, back to me
A couple dollars to our name, didn't matter babe,
The only thing we ever needed was the flame,

The Flame, The Flame

Lyrics

 

Wild is the wind that brought us down,
To this place beneath the clouds,
Our faith won't let us down,
Not to shame, but make us proud

I know I could have stayed,
But left for far away,
A choice I did not make,
But now I am afraid,
To brave this next crusade all alone...

We began to transcend
Like a ghost in the wind
When day and night seem frozen
Trapped in time until Day's End...

The setting sun is like a fire,
Burning deep inside your soul,
Thoughts of hope and desire
Filling my head, I lost control

I could not find the way,
All that fell was rain,
No one to carry me,
No boat to cross the sea,
But you came with open arms to carry me...

We began to transcend
Like a ghost in the wind
When day and night seem frozen
Trapped in time until Day's End...

See me walking, down a road that leads nowhere,
Unseen forces flowing, in the air... in the air...

We began to transcend
Like a ghost in the wind
When day and night seem frozen
Trapped in time until Day's End...

Lyrics

 

This year was so wasted, everything was all about you
A world you created, nothing that you told me was true
So fine, I'm sick of you, sick of the way we are but ill be fine,
Cost too much time, this has gone too far

I should have slowed it down,
Never let it start, I never slowed it down,
I see what you are

Hey, why don't you just give me a break, I see you through my tears
You were just a stupid mistake, the biggest one this year
Now I'm telling you it's too late, you were a mistake

Now we are so over, everything about us has crashed
Your new girl, I told her, there is no way you two will last,
I try to take you on, blew up in my face because you lied,
When you said "I love you", you are just so fake

I should have slowed it down,
Never let it start, I never slowed it down,
I know what you are

Hey, why don't you just give me a break, I see you through my tears
You were just a stupid mistake, the biggest one this year
I don't know why I was hypnotized, don't know why I stayed
Now I'm telling you it's too late, you were a mistake

I never wanted to be, anything you were after,
Now I am telling you it's over

Hey, why don't you just give me a break, I see you through my tears
You were just a stupid mistake, the biggest one this year

Hey, why don't you just give me a break, I see you through my tears
You were just a stupid mistake, the biggest one this year
I don't know why I was hypnotized, don't know why I stayed
Now I'm telling you it's too late, you were a mistake

Lyrics

 

Silly girl, wandering through another day,
Turning circles, turning pages, always turning you away,
Maybe I'm running, maybe I'm coming back,
But wherever I go, there I am, couldn't give you more than that

Maybe I, I should try a little harder,
Maybe I, I have never been alone,
Maybe I, never make the right decisions, but I try,
I'm waiting for the right time,
and I'll know what to do and what to say, but you'll be far away and you'll be fine

Silly girl, couldn't hear a word you said,
One day over here, I'm over there, now I'm in over my head,
Ask me a question, ask me what's on my mind,
I'll make up a brilliant story but in truth it's all a lie

Maybe I, I shouldn't always try to tempt you,
Maybe I, I shouldn't try to tempt myself,
Maybe I, I wouldn't ever let you move on, but I've tried
I'm waiting for the right time,
and I'll know what to do and what to say, but you'll be far away and you'll be fine

Maybe I, I know nothing ever works out,
Maybe God, God was never really listening,
Maybe I, I'm not meant to go to heaven, but I've tried,
I'm waiting for the right time,
and I'll know what to do and what to say, but you'll be far away and you'll be fine

You'll be fine, you'll be fine
You won't be mine, but you'll be fine...

Lyrics

 

I don't mean to act like a child, if you want I'll go,
Don't need to hear that you love me, I know that you don't
My eyes are open, I won't come undone,
I know that I'm young and you're not that young,

I don't mean to wear my emotions, here on my sleeve,
Don't need to hear your devotions, at least not for me,
I'm not here asking you for anything but reprieve,
Just say I don't have to leave,

You can save me from my sorrow,
Take my anger, and make me feel free,
Make my body yours to borrow,
I don't need to feel pretty, you won't have to play fair,
I just wanna know that somebody's there,
And I won't care if you hurt me tomorrow

It's too late for me to start over, the past has been set,
Too late for me to be thankful, too soon to regret,
That's why I'm standing here giving more than I get,
Still I'm happy we met,

You can save me from my sorrow,
Take my anger, and make me feel free,
Make my body yours to borrow,
I don't need to feel pretty, you won't have to play fair,
I just wanna know that somebody's there,
And I won't care if you hurt me tomorrow

Am I disillusioned, because I don't mind,
Is my dignity worthless, if I put it aside,
Ts it wrong to escape when I'm dying inside,
Won't you help me hide?

You can save me from my sorrow,
Take my anger, and make me feel free,
Make my body yours to borrow,
I don't need to feel pretty, you won't have to play fair,
I just wanna know that somebody's there,
And I won't care...

You can save me from my sorrow,
Take my anger, and make me feel free,
Make my body yours to borrow,
I don't need to feel pretty, you won't have to play fair,
I just wanna know that somebody's there,
And I won't care, I won't care, I won't care if you hurt me tomorrow

Lyrics

 

Here I lie unfulfilled, just like every other morning with you,
Clutching my windowsill, feeling desperate just to hear something new,

But I'm afraid to give in,
Sick and tired of fighting,
But I have to admit
That your comfort's inviting,
Till I roll over...

And I stare at my choices
While the voices I hear
Just remind me how I've wasted a year,
I'll always try to look back
But the fact is, I'm here,
Hogging covers from reality
Lying naked with a memory

So I give but don't take trying hard to make some magic appear,
Then I scream and I fake, but you didn't even bother to hear,

Now it seems that I've lost
All the games you've been playing,
And I know I should leave
But I think that I'm staying,
Till I roll over...

And I stare at my choices
While the voices I hear
Just remind me how I've wasted a year,
I'll always try to look back
But the fact is, I'm here
Hogging covers from reality
Lying naked with a memory

Now we could try to hold on, maybe work a little harder,
We could try to be strong, make it last a little longer,
But the truth will remain, and we'll strain to probably end up back here, in a year...

Till I roll over...

And I stare at my choices
While the voices I hear
Just remind me how I've wasted a year,
I'll always try to look back
But the fact is, I'm here,
Hogging covers from reality
Lying naked with a memory

And I stare at my choices
While the voices I hear
Just remind me how I've wasted a year, yeah, yeah,
I'll always try to look back
But the fact is, I'm here,
Hogging covers from reality
Lying naked with a memory

Here I lie unfulfilled, just like every other morning with you...

Lyrics

 

Here I am, back here again,
After all my talk and swearing off all men,
Now I find, I'm paralyzed,
Is this chance worth making one more compromise?

As I stand here now, not knowing what will come,
This could all go wrong or you may be the one...
Are you my one?

The bottom looks so far from way up here,
I'm so afraid to fall, I can't see clear,
Looking without leaping, after all I've been through,
How can I survive? This is suicide.
I won't survive... This is suicide.
It's suicide...

You are strong, but this seems fast,
It's not fair to blame you for what's in my past,
If my time for this is done, let me be done,
While my grip is lost, I still feel like I've won,
Like I've won...

The bottom looks so far from way up here,
I'm so afraid to fall, I can't see clear,
Looking without leaping, after all I've been through,
How can I survive? This is suicide.
I won't survive... This is suicide.

Falling into you seems easy at the start,
Where will I end up falling, if this falls apart...

The bottom looks so far from way up here,
I'm so afraid to fall, I can't see clear,
Looking without leaping, after all I've been through,
How can I survive? This is suicide.
I won't survive... This is suicide.

Fantasies of a boy in my head
Such a saint in my eyes
I remember all the things you said
Never quick to compromise
And all my regret kept me silent
I was so wrong

If you call I will run (She’s running away)
If you call I won’t hide (Fill the void, feel my pain)
When I hide don’t come find me (I have fallen from grace)
If you call I will run, Away, Oh, Away, Oh

You stay high while I kept going down
I was hooked when we met
I remember the times we drove around (All night)
I can still taste your sweat
And all my regret kept me silent
I was so wrong

If you call I will run (She’s running away)
If you call I won’t hide (Fill the void, feel my pain)
When I hide don’t come find me (I have fallen from grace)

It wasn't mine to have,
I never thought I would,
I never thought it could be, good

You put your arms around me, turning me inside out
(Turning me upside-down)
I'll never get to sleep while you're around...

Remember what you did to me
Break me, shake me, do it again baby,
Do that thing you did to me again...

Now I can't get enough,
But I'm still gonna try,
I never knew I would be, fine

You put your arms around me, turning me inside out
(Turning me upside-down)
I'll never get to sleep while you're around...

Remember what you did to me,
Break me, shake me, do it again baby,
Do that thing you did to me again...
I'll meet you in a motel room,
Midnight, daylight, whatever you wanna do,
Do that thing you did to me again

I missed you last night, but now I'm all right,
So won't you spend tonight with me?

You put your arms around me, turning me inside out
(Turning me upside-down)
I'll never get to sleep when you're around...

Remember what you did to me,
Break me, shake me, do it again baby,
Do that thing you did to me again...
I'll meet you in a motel room,
Midnight, daylight, whatever you wanna do,
Just do that thing you did to me again

I missed you last night, but now I'm all right,

Lyrics

 

And it's so hard to say,
To organize my thoughts, I'm not surprised, by the truth,
And I'm not sure of what, exactly what I'm supposed to do except,
To say I knew,

But I just didn't want to see, or acknowledge what went wrong,
Does leaving you really make me strong?

Suddenly life was so damn clear, I was delirious,
suddenly one long day changed everything i knew,
A hail of thunder crashed, and you were less mysterious,
Why did it take a lie to make me see the truth?

And I don't know, if I am better off now knowing what i know,
Or living in denial,
why should i try to find the silver lining anywhere when I,
Don't need you by my side?

And I can tend to underestimate the way things really are but now I see,
Love shouldn't be this hard...

Suddenly life was so damn clear, I was delirious,
suddenly one long day changed everything i knew,
A hail of thunder crashed, and you were less mysterious,
Why did it take a lie to make me see the truth?

Can you give me one reason I should miss you?
can you give me a reason, a reason i should care?

I was delirious,
suddenly one long day changed everything i knew,
A hail of thunder crashed, and you were less mysterious,
Why did it take a lie to make me see the truth?

I was delirious,
suddenly one long day changed everything i knew,
A hail of thunder crashed, and you were less mysterious,
Why did it take a lie to make me see the truth?

I was delirious...
