Friday 13, lights go red, green, in a coffee shop
I'm giving you the look
While someone else
Is fingering your wallet in my pocketbook

It's a mean town but I don't care
Try and steal this
Can't steal happiness

Got a charger, no cell phone, I can't call out
Unless it's to cry your name out the open window
To a sky that looks right back
And says it's never seen rain
Sometimes you gotta start clean
You gotta begin not begin again, oh no

And as we fly around the sun
We know we're not the only ones
Love for the lonely
It's been a long time coming
Can you hear that hopeful heart?

Night settles, still working on a way to breathe
Don't you go, don't you go down
Take a helium taxi home to me

    General Comment'Sometimes you gotta start clean
    You gotta begin not begin again, oh no'

    not to begin again, meaning you didn't like your life before.
    but begin in general, meaning you never really had a life before.
    intense, pretty.

    General CommentLove listening to this song when I'm feeling a bit down; it always brings my mood up. This is one of the most optimistic songs ever, and such a delight to listen to over and over!

    General CommentHey fellow fans,
    I have never meet anyone who has ever heard of the weepies. I know its hard to believe. I try to introduce them, and they just don't get the magic that is their music.
    Anyway, this song(and all weepies songs) make me feel weak. With that type of word usage, it paints like a beautiful painting in my mind about love, and apathy. LOVE CONCOURS ALL...sorta. I envy their love. *sigh*

    p.s: isn't it,"its been a long time coming, can you hear that hopeful "hark"...oh oh."(Not hopeful heart)Atleast I like it better that way.
