20,000 is a perfect number
They sit together
and you and me

I\'ve been crawling on the carpet for four hours now
Burning holes in my knees for your hand
You are my red-faced girl.
Dark hair, darkest eyes
Who wishes she had darker skin
I hope when it turns midnight

You don\'t leave me when the sunny lights are gone
I\'ll be cold, in the room
at the window
all alone

When your car starts for the forty-nine
I don\'t want to take your hand
I\'ll take your way of life away and then
Where the drums you won\'t be welcome

I missed the ship that took them back all the way across the ocean
but your family came from here
But I didn\'t sail here to destroy you
I came all the way across the ocean just to hold you
The A.I.M won\'t support me because I don\'t look like them, to them
But I didn\'t sail here to destroy you
I came all the way across the ocean just to hold you

    General CommentYou folks are very kind. This song was one of the first songs Jason (guitar) and I wrote when we were first starting the band. The only version ever released was recorded at my parents house in the living room. It eventually made its way onto the Emo Diaries. We've just gotten back the rights to record it, but we're not sure if a new version will ever see the light of day. Thanks for the compliments. Nathan - ENIAC

    General CommentJust to correct some lyrics:

    You won't leave me when the sunny lights are gone
    I'll feel cold, in the room
    at the window
    all alone
