"Colorado Sunrise" as written by Nathaniel Motte and Sean Foreman....
And if I had something to say to you I'd whisper it softly,
Kiss you on your rosy lips and never let you off me.
Shiver on your roof and see your face lit by starlight,
Hold you through the night and watch that Colorado sunrise.

I've got five fingers on each hand for every mistake that I've made
Plus my tongue is tied to tonsils and I need to shit and shave
I'm a shade to pale for handsome and have habits I can't shake
And if you try to take that from me well I'll never be the same

Train wreck that I am
And I am what I am what I am
A train wreck, that I am
And I am what I am what I am
A train wreck

And as long as it's OK with you I think I'll stay right here.
I got no where to go cause where to go is up to you, dear.
Happy as a clam I see the glimmer in your eyes.
Hold you through the night and watch that Colorado sunrise.

No car and never cared because I got no place to go.
But in a room, (a single wall?) I couldn't pay a plant to grow
You can try and make this pretty, pick up all my dirty clothes.
And if you never really get me then I guess you'll never know the

Train wreck that I am
And I am what I am what I am
A train wreck, that I am
And I am what I am what I am
A train wreck

I've got five fingers on each hand for every mistake that I've made
Plus my tongue is tied to tonsils and I need to shit and shave
I'm a shade to pale for handsome and have habits I can't shake
And if you try to take that from me well I wouldn't be the same

Train wreck that I am
And I am what I am what I am
(Colorado sunrise)
A train wreck
That I am
And I am what I am what I am
(Colorado sunrise)
Train wreck.
That I am
(If I had something to say to you I'd whisper it softly)
And I am what I am what I am
(Kiss you on your rosy lips and never let you off me)
A train wreck
That I am
(Shiver on your roof see your face lit by starlight)
And I am what I am what I am
(Hold you through the night and watch that Colorado sunrise)
A train wreck.

    General Commenti think it might be "in a room missing a wall", not "a room, a single wall". it makes a little more sense since a room with one wall isnt really a room. plus, it's more their style to do complete sentences then break them up with commas.

    General Commenti'm in lve with this song. the way they can depict different emotions is crazy. they go from romantic, to humour, to hectic. i love it.

    i agree with allison06, i'm pretty sure it's:
    "No car and never cared cared because I got no place to go.
    But in a room missing a wall,
    I couldn't pay a plant to grow."

    i digress. amazing song. the end.

    General CommentThis has been my myspace song for a month and a half now. This is probably their best song because it is meaningful but so dancy, lol. I met these guys, and they're fucking amazing live :)

    General CommentThis is a really cute song. It's probably my favorite by them, actually. I like the ability to be a little more soft.
    I downloaded it with the name "Colorado Sunshine", though, I'm not sure why it was like that?

    General Commentthey claim denver as their hometown when they play live, probably because no one would know boulder
