Squall and Laguna lyrics  
Because apparently I have nothing better to do with my time.

It's really kinda long...



Father of Mine- Everclear

Father of mine tell me where have you been?
You know I just closed my eyes and my whole world disappeared.
Father of mine take me back to the day when I was still your golden boy,
Back before you went away.
I remember blue skies, walking the block.
I loved it when you held me high, I loved to hear you talk.
You would take me to a movie, you would take me to the beach,
You would take me to the place inside that is so hard to reach.
Father of mine tell me where did you go?
You had the world inside your hand, and you did not seem to know.
Father of mine, tell me what do you see,
When you look back at your wasted life and you don't see me.
I was ten years old, doing all that I could.
It wasn't easy for me to be a scared white boy in a black neighbourhood.
Sometimes you would send me a birthday card with a five dollar bill.
I never understood you then, and I guess I never will.
Daddy gave me a name, my dad he gave me a name then he walked away.
Daddy gave me a name then he walked away.
My dad he gave me a name.
Father of mine, tell me where have you been?
I just closed my eyes and the world disappeared.
Father of mine, tell me how do you sleep?
With all the children you abandoned and the wife I saw you beat.
I will never be safe, I will never be sane,
I will always be weird inside, I will always be lame.
Now I'm a grown man with a child of my own.
And I swear that I will never let her know all the pain I have known.
Then he walked away.
Daddy gave me a name then he walked away.
My dad he gave me a name then he walked away.
Daddy gave me a name then he walked away.
My dad he gave me a name.
Then he walked away.

Evergleam- Everclear

Evergleam and I know why God is good and Jesus loves me
Heaven lives and I know where
Sounds to me a not so easy chair falling free and living
Stringing out over and over
Evergleam and I know why it isn't real and I'm not going to break
Don't die don't give in to it no way no way don't die
Please don't leave me
Evergleam and I know how pulling hair and breaking voices
Giving in won't stop the noise
Spinning wills don't give you choices
Give away the spark inside you give away the shining prize
Evergleam and I know how it isn't real and I'm not going to break
No I'm not going to break
Evergleam everywhere ever weird everyone
I won't see you there I'm not going away
No way

Annabella's Song- Everclear (written for Art Alexakis's daughter)

I see you roll your eyes
You know it makes me smile
You are like the sun to me
Bright as liquid fire
I feel so powerless
To hold you up above the world
You are quite a lot of trouble
Such a pretty little girl
Such a pretty little girl
You know I'm never home
I'm always miles and miles away
I feel I'm runnin' out of time
Say the things I need to say

Call you on the telephone
You will not talk to me
Yeah you just don't understand
You are my everything
Anna, Anna
Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
Anna, Anna, you are never alone
You are never alone
Anna, Anna
Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
Anna, Anna, you are never alone
You are never alone
I like to watch you play
When you don't know I'm there
See you in your sleep at night
Reach out and touch your hair

I wanna make this world
Be just how you want it to be
Yeah you just don't understand
You're my everything
Anna, Anna
Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
Anna, Anna, you are never alone
You are never alone

Local God- Everclear (last one, I swear!)

you do that romeo
be what you wanna be
look like you runnin' in place
do that stupid dance for me
do that romeo
that go-go romeo
i see you twist and turn
you look so stupid, happy, and numb

be my romeo
please be my voice in this world
i can't sing the songs that you sing
i can't find the gorgeous words
will you be my romeo?
my go-go romeo
i see you twist and turn you look so stupid

i feel just like a local god when i'm with the boys
we do what we want, yes we do what we want
i feel just like a local god when i'm with the boys
we do what we want, yeah we do what we want

be my romeo
tell me all about your love
tell me all about your pain
baited breath and rubber gloves
be my romeo
my go-go romeo
i see you twist and turn you look so fuckin' stupid

i feel just like a local god when i'm with the boys
we do what we want, yes we do what we want
summer days can lead to the bad times
the world gets larger everyday
yeah, yeah, the summer days can lead to the bad blood
that leaves me feelin' stupid, happy, and numb
stupid, happy, and numb
i feel so stupid, happy and numb
stupid, happy and numb

i feel so stupid...

i feel just like a local god when i'm with the boys
we do what we want, we do what we want

Old Man- Neil Young

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four and there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things that don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

No More- from 'Into the Woods'

No more questions, please.
No more tests.
Comes the day you say, 'What for?'
Please.. no more.

We disappoint, we disappear, we die, but we don't.
They disappoint in turn, I fear,
Forgive, though, they won't.

No more riddles.
No more jests.
No more curses you can't undo, left by fathers you never knew.
No more quests.
No more feelings. Time to shut the door.
Just.. No more.

Running away, let's do it.
Free from the ties that bind.
No more despair, or burdens to bear,
Out there in the yonder.
Running away, go to it.
Where did you have in mind?
Have to take care.. unless there's a 'where',
You'll only be wandering blind.
Just more questions.. different kind.
Where are we to go?
Where are we ever to go?
Running away, we'll do it.
Why sit around, resigned?
Trouble is, son, the farther you run,
The more you'll be wandering blind.
For what you have left undone, and more,
What you've left behind.
We disappoint, we leave a mess, we die, but we don't.

We disappoint in turn, I guess. Forget, though, we won't.

Like father, like son.

No more giants waging war!
Can't we just pursue our lives, with our children and our wives,
'Til that happy day arrives, how do you ignore
All the witches, all the curses,
All the wolves, all the lies, the false hopes, the good-bye's,
The reverses,
All the wondering what even worse is still in store!
All the children.
All the giants..
No more.

No One is Alone- from 'Into the Woods' (the saddest fairy tale ever)

Mother cannot guide you.
Now you're on your own.
Only me beside you.
Still, you're not alone.
No one is alone. Truly.
No one is alone.
Sometimes people leave you
Halfway through the wood.
Others may deceive you.
You decide what's good.
You decide alone.
But no one is alone.

I wish..

I know.
Mother isn't here now.

Wrong things, right things.

Who knows what she'd say?

Who can say what's true?

Nothing's quite so clear now.

Do things, fight things,

Feel you've lost your way?

You decide, but

You are not alone.

Believe me,
No one is alone
No one is alone.
Believe me.
Truly.
You move just a finger, You move just a finger,
Say the slightest word, Say the slightest word,
Something's bound to linger, Something's bound to linger,
Be heard. Be heard.
No one acts alone.
Careful.
No one is alone.
People make mistakes. People make mistakes.
Fathers,
Mothers,
People make mistakes, People make mistakes,
Holding to their own, Holding to their own,
Thinking they're alone. Thinking they're alone.
Honor their mistakes--
Everybody makes-- Fight for their mistakes--

One another's terrible mistakes.
Witches can be right, giants can be good.
You decide what's right, you decide what's good.

Just remember: [echo] Just remember:

Someone is on your side.

OUR side.

Our side--
Someone else is not.
While we're seeing our side--

Our side..

Our side--

Maybe we forgot: they are not alone.
No one is alone.

Hard to see the light now.

Just don't let it go.

Things will come out right now.
We can make it so.
Someone is on your side

Wall of Sound- American Hi-Fi

it don't mean nothing
when you say it's gonna be alright
cause you'll tell me anything, I wanna hear
and it don't mean nothing
when you laugh at my jokes
cause it's all or nothing, when I fall apart

fade into you

you're under my skin now
I could shut out the world that we know
I'll try to be everything, you want me to be
and I've got a head start, but I'm making the same mistakes
and it's all or nothing, when we fall apart

caught in the rush of the crowd
lost in a wall of sound
you were ringing in my ear

Star Me Kitten- R.E.M.

Keys cut, three for the price of one.
Nothing's free but guaranteed for a lifetime's use.
I've changed the locks
and you can't have one.
You, you know the other two.

The brakes have worn so thin that you could hear,
I hear them screeching through the door from our driveway.
Hey love, look into your glovebox heart.
What is there for me inside? This love is tired.
I've changed the locks. Have I misplaced you?
Have we lost our minds?
Will this never end?
It could depend on your take.

You. Me. We used to be on fire.
If keys are all that stand between,
Can I throw in the ring?
No gasoline.
Just fuck me kitten.
You are wild and I'm in your possesion.
Nothing's free so, fuck me kitten.

I'm in your possesion.
So, fuck me kitten.

Daddy- Jewel

My bones are tired, Daddy
I don't get enough sleep
I don't eat as good as I should, Daddy
What's that say about me?

Sometimes I sleep past noon, Daddy
Drink lots of black coffee and I smoke like a chimney,
Yes, I left the refrigerator door half open, Daddy
What's that say about me?

Sometimes I want to rip out your throat, Daddy
For all those things you said that were mean,
Gonna make you just as vunerable as I was, Daddy
What's that say about me?

Sometimes I want to bash in your teeth, Daddy
Gonna use your tongue as a stamp
Gonna rip your heart out the way you did mine, Daddy
Go ahead and psycho-analyse that

'Cause I'm your creation, I'm your love Daddy
Grew up to be and do all those sick things you said I'd do
Well last night I saw you sneak out your window
With your white hood, Daddy
What's that say about you?
I'm sloppy, what's that say about you?
I'm messy, what's that say about you?

My bones are tired, Daddy.

Cold Song- Jewel

It's getting cold and I'm starting to sneeze,
I wipe my nose on my sleeve.
I've got the sniffles,
I'd better drink my tea.
Oh do you do you wanna wanna catch a cold with me?

I'd catch a cold with you anytime,
I ain't just feverish, I ain't just lyin'
'Cause when your nose is running it's a perfect time for kissing and hugging.
Oh do you do you wanna wanna catch a cold with me?

We'll stay inside where it's nice and warm
Tell our bosses, we're caught in a sneezing storm.
We'll sniffle and snuggle and watch some more tv.
Oh do you do you wanna wanna catch a cold with me?

I'd catch a cold with you anytime,
I ain't just feverish, I ain't just lyin'
'Cause when your nose is running it's a perfect time for kissing and hugging.
Oh do you do you wanna wanna catch a cold with me?

Do you do you wanna wanna wanna wanna do you do you wanna do me yes indeed,
Oh do you do you wanna wanna catch/have a cold with me?

When You Dream- BNL

With life just begun, my sleeping new son
has eyes that roll back in his head
They flutter and dart, he slows down his heart
and pictures a world past his bed
It's hard to believe
As I watch you breathe
Your mind drifts and weaves

When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
Do you dream about
music or mathematics
or planets too far for the eye?
Do you dream about
Jesus or quantum mechanics
or angels who sing lullabies?

His fontanelle pulses with lives that he's lived
With memories he'll learn to ignore
And when it is closed, he already knows
he's forgotten all he knew before
But when sleep sets in
history begins
But the future will win

When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
Are they colour or black and white,
Yiddish or English
or languages not yet conceived?
Are they silent or boisterous?
Do you hear noises just
loud enough to be perceived?
Do you hear Del Shannon's "Runaway" playing
on transistor radio waves?
With so little experience,
your mind not yet cognizant
Are you wise beyond your few days?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?
