lyrics

Hello, maybe I’m a star
Or maybe I'm a bridge too far
Just another cable car with scar
On the boulevard of broken dreams
These fugazi frauds will take advantage of our crazy hearts
If we let 'em

You and I have always been the underdogs
Our inner dialogues are jihads
But we try so hard
So bring me that horizon
Or a hooker that accepts memorized credit cards
Just kidding

Every end is a beginning and we’re in the ninth inning
But we sit here grinning and sinning
While the totem keeps spinning
Making sure it’s not a dream, an "Inception" scene
Is it real or is it Maybelline?
Were pilots in the stone temple
Flies in the Vasoline
I went berzerk like Wolverine
But I’m coming clean (know what I mean?)

I remember those New York nights and those LA dawns
The big city lights and those country farms
And how I woke heartbroken to the sound of alarms
Couldn't take it so I cut the tattoo from my arm

It reminded me of that Semi-Charmed Life
Standing at the gates of heaven with a switchblade knife
St. Peter with a heater telling me to think twice
(Boy, you better think twice)

But every morning I wake up, take up, shake up
These cobwebs from my head
Take the halo from my bed
And I chase butterflies and the words I said
Around the table like a fable that I read as a kid
Uncovering things once hid
And these demons come up from below to take my God-given glow
But they wont, so I sing

Hello maybe everything
The songs we sing
Will be an offering for days spent in between
The friction of our hopes and dreams

Hello maybe everything
The songs we sing
Will be the only gifts we have fit for a king
So hello maybe everything

Hello
Hello

Maybe everything will be alright
Maybe we could fall in love tonight
And hitch our wagon to a satellite
Catch a falling star, realize who we are
Just rebels without applause and I pause because

I've seen the roses turn blue In the presence of her crimson lips
And her fingertips
And I’d love to tell her how I feel but I am not equipped
I'm just an anchor on a sinking ship

Every day I wake up, take up. shake up this blood inside my pen
And I run to where I end and where you begin
I can't pretend, you're my only friend
And I don't want this book to end, I want another chapter
I want the dead lovers of the world to heart our laughter
Rise to the rafters
While we dance happily ever after

These hearts shoot sparks and champagne rainbows
But never quite work the same
You’ll always be my New York skyline
I’ll always be your acid rain
This eternal flame will keep burning
And the world will keep turning
Wild horses will never be tamed
Still I remain
Cause I’ve been through hell
But I cant complain
That’s why I sing

Hello maybe everything
The songs we sing
Will be an offering for days spent in between
The friction of our hopes and dreams

Hello maybe everything
The songs we sing
Will be the only gifts we have fit for a king
So hello maybe everything

Hello
Hello
Hello
