Verve Pipe

Villains – Verve Pipe

I turned the volume up this morning
till there was ringing in my ears
i haven’t felt this good in years

Another villain on the cover
of every major magazine
the victim somewhere in between

See how they twist and shout

And as i’m searching for the story
subscription card falls to the floor
i’m losing interest more and more

To pick it up i’m bending over
out of the corner of my eye
I see a pair of blazing thighs

See how they twist and shout
See how they twist and shout

I straighten up to look her over
and up my back a shooting pain
it’s bound to settle in my brain

Another villain on the cover
of every major magazine
the victim somewhere in between

See how they twist and shout
See how they twist and shout

Victoria – Verve Pipe

stripping flowers at pedal pace
twirling blur of legs, legs and lace
victoria, she loves her name

running flushed our faces red
daring her to kiss, to kiss my head
victoria, she loves her name

bathing in her innocence
then drowned in her indifference
victoria

i left her on her frozen route
i grew up while she, she grew out
victoria, she loves her name

a social climb by offering love
’til everyone was inside of
victoria
loves

now my love won’t make amends
you cut the cord on which your life depends
victoria, she loves her name

like cheating in a children’s game
victory doesn’t taste the same
yet victoria, she loves her name
victoria
loves

La La – Verve Pipe

with everyone around us singing la la we slid out of their view
then you thought you heard me singing la la but I don?t have the strength to

and from the moment that i give out we begin to live out
scenes from all romantic prose while tethered to the roles
or what was meant disguised as sentiment could hang
misunderstood and left unanswered

your eyes tell me i have what i wanted haunted as i hold you
nervous slacking with the lacking heartache no heartbreak when i told you

and though i never did surrender could you please remember
if and when we meet again we once were more than friends
embarrassed me but would you share a scene and kiss me
one last time before i leave you

and though i won’t surrender i want you to remember
if and when we meet again we’ll still be more than friends
grant me this it could seem frivolous, but kiss me
one last time before i leave you

you’ve got all my loving in a tangle that i could never undo
and you will never hear me singing la la
i guess la la means i love you

Half A Mind – Verve Pipe

sometimes i wish we had a short term memory just enough to recognize each other’s face
it would be the same old stories but you’re hanging onto every single word i have to say
and to the world i’m not that clever but you would stay with me forever
i’d keep your friends from reminding, reminding you to

save yourself, leave me behind you would if you had half a mind

i’d tell you every day’s your birthday and every gift i bring could be the same
or how i stood beside you at a shotgun wedding and the child we once would love but never came
hearing stories that were never you would stay with me forever

but i’d forget to make money and you’d forget to

save yourself, leave me behind you would if you had half a mind (how vulnerable you are)
write a note to remind you you would if you had half a mind (how effortless to stay together)

for these ties you may have severed now you’ll stay with me forever

and so you write on your forehead, or better yet you engrave
so when you look in the mirror, well you won’t forget to

save yourself, leave me behind you would if you had half a mind (how vulnerable you are)
write a note to remind you you would if you had half a mind (how effortless to stay together)

if we had no memory whatsoever we would stay right here forever
