Losing My Religion

Oh life, it's bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I've said too much
I've said enough

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper 
Of every waking hour
I'm choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no, I've said too much
I've said enough

Consider this
Consider this, the hint of the century
Consider this, the slip
That brought me to my knees, failed
What if all these fantasies come
Flailing around
Now I've said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That's me in the corner
That's me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don't know if I can do it
Oh no, I've said too much
I haven't said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, cry, why try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream, dream

Nightswimming

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night.
The photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago,
Turned around backwards so the windshield shows.
Every streetlight reveals the picture in reverse.
Still, it's so much clearer.
I forgot my shirt at the water's edge.
The moon is low tonight.
Nightswimming deserves a quiet night.
I'm not sure all these people understand.
It's not like years ago,
The fear of getting caught,
Of recklessness and water.
They cannot see me naked.
These things, they go away,
Replaced by everyday.

Nightswimming, remembering that night.

September's coming soon.
I'm pining for the moon.
And what if there were two
Side by side in orbit
Around the fairest sun?
That bright, tight forever drum
Could not describe nightswimming.

You, I thought I knew you.
You I cannot judge.
You, I thought you knew me,
This one laughing quietly underneath my breath.
Nightswimming.

The photograph reflects, every streetlight a reminder. 

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night, deserves a quiet night.

Gardening At Night

I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change 
Though all the feelings that broke through that door 
Just didn't seem to be too real 
The yard is nothing but a fence, the sun just hurts my eyes 
Somewhere it must be time for penitence. Gardening at night is never where 
Gardening at night, gardening at night, gardening at night 
The neighbors go to bed at ten 
Call the prayer line for a change 
The charge is changing every month 
They said it couldn't be arranged 

We ankled up the garbage sound, but they were busy in the rows 
We fell up, not to see the sun, gardening at night just didn't grow 
I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change 
Though all the feelings that broke through that door 
Just didn't seem to be too real 
Gardening at night, gardening at night, gardening at night 

Your sister said that you're too young 
They should know they've been there twice 
The call was 2 and 51 
They said it couldn't be arranged 

I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change 
Though all the feelings that broke through that door 
Just didn't seem to be too real 
The yard is nothing but a fence, the sun just hurts my eyes 
Somewhere it must be time for penitence. Gardening at night is never where 

Gardening at night, gardening at night, gardening at night

Everybody Hurts

When your day is long and the night 
The night is yours alone
When you're sure you've had enough of this life, well hang on
Don't let yourself go 
Everybody cries and everybody hurts sometimes

Sometimes everything is wrong 
Now it's time to sing along
When your day is night alone (hold on, hold on)
If you feel like letting go (hold on)
When you think you've had too much of this life, well hang on

Everybody hurts 
Take comfort in your friends.
Everybody hurts
Don't throw your hand. Oh, no
Don't throw your hand
If you feel like you're alone, no, no, no, you are not alone

If you're on your own in this life 
The days and nights are long
When you think you've had too much of this life to hang on

Well, everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody cries
And everybody hurts sometimes
And everybody hurts sometimes
So, hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on 
Hold on, hold on 
(Hold on, hold on)

Everybody hurts 

You are not alone
