You keep me in a glass jar sealed with a label
You think you know my world
Wake up young girl
and take a taste of life that we must
We've got a lot to learn, yeah
My love, my life, my work, my time
I give them all to you
Your hand in mine, we walk, we talk in ryhme
We go the whole night through yeah

But i'm not a grain of sand
I don't care what's written in your hand
cause it's bound to change, yeah

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Buy the book, rip it up now, have it sewn
I'm a grower
Anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore
I wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you

But you tease me
And it shows in the way that you play,
You think you know my love
Wake up young girl
And take a taste, not a bite, of life,
You can tell you never come, yeah well
My will, my mind, my lips, my lines
I've got them all over you

Your taste combined
With all the years of wasting time
I've got a hold on something new
I'm not a grain of sand
I don't care what's written in your hand
cause it's about to change, yeah

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Buy the book, rip it up now
Have it sewn, I'm a grower
Anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore
I wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you

But i don't wanna pray for what is not right
And I don't wanna beg for what is not mine
I don't wanna run the road between dreams and worthy things
Oh i could charge, man I could really try
But I don't wanna be the brave one in a senseless fight
No, i, i, i, i just wanna be here tonight

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Buy the book, rip it up now
Have it sewn, I'm a grower
Anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore
I wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Buy the book, rip it up now
Have it sewn, I'm a grower
Anymore, Anymore, Anymore, Anymore,
Anymore, Anymore, Anymore,
I need more, I need more, I need more, I need more,

You keep me in a glass jar sealed with a label
You think you know my world
Wake up young girl

    General Commentthis is actually my favorite damien song. i think its about someone who you love, who can't quite straighten out their feelings.

    General CommentI think this song is about a person who's been jaded by their life experiences, but he's in love so he's torn between being optimistic and happy and his old ways of cynicism.

    General CommentI don't wanna pray for what is not right
    And I don't wanna beg for what is not mine
    I don't wanna rock the road between dreams and worldly things
    I could charge, and I could really try
    But I don't wanna be the brave one
    In a senseless fight
    I, I, I just wanna be here tonight
    I think those are some of the best lyrics damien has ever written. he is so amazing.

    General CommentHate to be a buzz kill, but this song isn't as "romantic" as a lot may think. It's very much so about a guy who is loosing his patience with a girl that won't "put out".

    General Commentyes he is losing his patience and giving her an ultimatum. I gave you everything and I`m still waiting , wake up or I will not waste my time on something that it doesn`t worth it.
    Anyway I love it ...
