just give a little twist, little turn, keep on looking in the right direction baby.
i'm alive with the lights with the lies, but i kept on building it, stack it up,
little architect you're crazy, white shirt, black dress tie, dressed to the nine times too many times.
i couldn't wait to get out of the night life, it's a straight lie.

just calm down,
the trauma's on the inside,
my line's been drawn.
i don't want to be wasting time.

do you think that you'd call it crazy? contrary, and i shine amazing,
aging process called it quits, and the quicksand i trudged through and everything i meant to
say so, so said the young ones, the dumb ones, and "stupid" you called it, but i called it flawless.
played out and fade out, i planned it. pan left and right, set the curtain.

just calm down,
the trauma's on the inside,
my line's been drawn.
i don't want to be wasting time.
my ticket, my destination, singing "hallelujah".
oh god, i think i've really changed, but she will love me all the same.
my dear, it's all for you and i will pay my dues, i owe you some eight years, it's coming to you.

don't say "calm down" and "don't quit this town",
I left 'cause i was bored, and what might be in store.
don't make a sound, 'cause i'll be round.

i wish you could buckle up and take a chance,
you know i really do, and you really do.
just come along.
time's up, life's up, but i won't go.

my ticket, my destination, singing "hallelujah".
oh god, i think i've really changed, but she will love me all the same.
my dear, it's all for you and i will pay my dues, i owe you some eight years, it's coming to you.

hallelujah.
i've left town, and i won't come home.
ohio, i don't know, michigindiana, california, where's home?
why, oh why, if eyes collide,
why won't it feel the same, oh why oh? Wonderstands.

why, oh why,
if words are right,
why won't it feel the same oh, why oh?

so now i won't play games, and i won't change.

my ticket, my destination, singing "hallelujah".
oh god, i think i've really changed, but she will love me all the same.
my dear, it's all for you and i will pay my dues, i owe you some eight years, it's coming to you.

my dream and now i'm getting out,
i'm screaming "hallelujah",
oh god i think i've really changed,
but she will love me all the same.
darling it's all for you, and i will pay my dues.
i'm counting 4, 3, 2, 1.

    General CommentIn my opinon this song might have been when he was on tour or just getting famous because he says:
    don't say "calm down" and "don't quit this town",
    I left 'cause i was bored, and what might be in store.
    It seems as if they were close friends growing up together.
    He says:
    little architect you're crazy, white shirt, black dress tie, dressed to the nine times too many times.
    i couldn't wait to get out of the night life, it's a straight lie.
    This means that he thinks she's working to hard.He wants her to come with him and explore.He doesn't want her to be stuck in the same routine.She doesn't think it's right, and he can't make a living out of being famous.She doesn't want him to quit on her and leave.
    my dear, it's all for you and i will pay my dues, i owe you some eight years, it's coming to you.
    This means that he's been gone a long time and he wants to make up for it.
    ohio, i don't know, michigindiana, california, where's home?
    He's been everywhere and he doesn't know where to go anymore.
    It's pretty obvious song if you listen to it.
    Some of the things he says is really sweet.
