"Dead End (demo version)" as written by and Perry/means/rues....
hold on, there's a hole in my heart.
everyone can see right through me.
it goes all the way to the waves where my love, she tried to wash it away.

and try and try as she might
we will walk along the beach
of a city filled with faulty machines
where the traffic tries to sing me to sleep
and she never gives it the time
every bottle she finds, they don't compare to the ones she left behind.
there is never a note so she waits for me to come back home.

i'm looking for a dead end song.
you wish that smoke could change its color, oh.
i love it when you talk so much and act like nothing went wrong.

i'm looking for a dead end song.
we sit and find flaws in everyone.
i wanna keep you by my side, holding a tidal wave.

mint car is keeping us warm.
we could spend the day in bed.
forget about the salt in the air
i don't care what the forecast read
cause if it rains we'll just stay inside
we've got a pack of cigarettes
we're singing that's the way we get by
between the sheets and the shade
oh, to me you are a sunny day.

i'm looking for a dead end song.
you wish that smoke could change its color, oh.
i love it when you talk so much and act like nothing went wrong.

i'm looking for a dead end song.
we sit and find flaws in everyone.
i wanna keep you by my side, holding a tidal wave.

i'm searching for a dead end song.
you wish that smoke could change its color, oh.
i wanna get you right by my side.

i'm searching for a dead end song.
we sit and find flaws in everyone.
i wanna get you right by my side.

i'm looking for a dead end song.
you wish that smoke could change its color, oh.
i love it when you talk so much. you act like nothing went wrong.

i'm looking for a dead end song.
we sit and find flaws in everyone.
i wanna keep you right by my side, holding off tidal waves.

    General CommentThis version is so much better than the album. Its just about 2 fucked up kids who know that they love each other right now but ultimately its a 'dead end'
