Jasey Rae

Album: Put Up or Shut Up (2006)
  • Lights out
    I still hear the rain
    These images that fill my head
    Now keep my fingers from making mistakes
    Tell my voice what it takes
    To speak up
    Speak up
    And keep my conscience clean when I wake

    Don't make this easy
    I want you to mean it
    Jasey (say you'll mean it)
    You're dressed to kill
    I'm calling you out (don't waste your time on me)

    Now there's an aching in my back;
    A stabbing pain that says I lack
    The common sense and confidence
    To bring an end to promises
    That I make in times of desperate conversation
    Hoping my night could be better than theirs in the end
    Just say when

    Don't make this easy
    I want you to mean it
    Jasey (say you'll mean it)
    You're dressed to kill
    I'm calling you out
    (Don't waste your time on me)

    I've never told a lie
    And that makes me a liar
    I've never made a bet, but we gamble with desire
    I've never lit a match with intent to start a fire
    But recently the flames are getting out of control

    Call me a name
    Kill me with words
    Forget about me
    It's what I deserve
    I was your chance
    To get out of this town
    But I ditched the car and left you to

    Wait outside
    I hope the air will serve to remind you
    That my heart is as cold as the clouds of your breath
    And my words are as timed as the beating in my chest Writer/s: ALEXANDER WILLIAM GASKARTH, JACK BASSAM BARAKAT, ROBERT RYAN DAWSON, ZACHARY STEVEN MERRICK
