I got a mean streak
I’ll punch your lights out
I’ll fight real dirty
And that’s all right
I got some big dreams
but I can’t find them
I got some problems
And that’s alright
I love my mama
born in el paso
My dads an asshole
And thats alright
My baby loves me
It’s hard to love me
I got that mean streak
And that’s alright
It’s a quiet desperation
That’s keeps me going
And that’s alright

A Little Bit More Of You

Verse 1:
One day, we’re gonna quit our jobs and leave this town
and finally get a place to call home
Someday, we’re gonna plant a little garden and plan a dinner party for two

But right now I’m ok simply holding your hand
But right there’s only one thing I need

Chorus
I could use a little bit more of you
and all those little things you do
the way laugh it always makes me smile

I could use a little bit more of you
you always know just what to do
the way you love you know it’s all I need

Verse 2:
One day, I’m going to climb a-top a mountain and scream out to the world that “I Love You”
On Sundays, we’re gonna put on ole’ sinatra, and slow dance under twinkling yellow the stars

Bridge:
We’ll never sing sad songs of quiet desperation
we’ll always have our love to lead us back
we’ll never waste our time concerned about tomorrow
Cause today our love shines through

Dead Presidents & Statesmen
(Scott Davis)
Verse 1
Don’t It just seem so hard somedays
To know your carnal consequences walk on two legs
the worst among us can forget
Manage to live with all that guilt
So, we calculate a plan and we lay our tracks
Buy a diverse portfolio, and khaki slacks
Correct me if I’m mistaken, but my life’s fed by dead presidents and statesmen
Pre Chorus 1
You don’t know me.
Oh, that’s right you do.
Well, you don’t own me.
Oh right, that too.
CHORUS
What have I created
Tempted by the hands of fate
Silent Desperation
Fiending for that one last taste  Oh Way Oh Oh
Oh Way Oh Oh
Verse 2
Settle down, marry up,
They say, “the first one’s for love and the last one’s for luck”
And we’re confident that we’re running our own life
But your wallet’s getting thinner everyday, got a promotion on the way
Pre-Chorus 2
You don’t know me.
Well, not me, per se
Well, you don’t own me.
You own my whole family

QUIET DESPERATION
I fell in love with the good times.  Never thought they wouldn’t last
Now the past is a land mine, it’s over in a flash
We came apart at the seams.  When I woke up you were gone
I never wrote me a story.  Now I’m livin my own song

I won’t make a sound when I think of your name
I’ll keep my feet on the ground like I did yesterday
You might stay with me til I’m seventy-one
But I’ll be smilin through my quiet desperation

We both came from a small town.  Never knew the city life
Terrified of the bright sounds, we’d sing right through the night
I don’t know what you’re running from but I hope you find the end
And even now in the good times I’ll say the words again

I won’t make a sound when I think of your name
I’ll keep my feet on the ground like I did yesterday
You might stay with me til I’m seventy-one 
But I’ll be smilin through my quiet desperation

I won’t make a sound when I think of your name
I’ll keep my feet on the ground like I did yesterday
You might stay with me til I’m a hundred and one 
But I’ll be smilin through my quiet desperation

QD

 

Waiting for my turn

On the edge I burn

Soaked in ecstasy

 

Rhymes and rhythm call

Soaring ‘neath it all

Hypnotizing me

 

And let go

Just let go

 

Salt caked in your hair

Ooo as if you cared

Punching every bee

 

We wont weigh a pound

Living underground

Gravity is free

 

Breathing gets smaller

Lungs fill with water

When will I just call her

 

Minutes on hold in preparation.

Moments of quiet desperation.

Two steps away from flight

Baby that’s when I ignite

Still Holding On

v1.

Steam is rising on these city streets; people passing in the heat

Hearts are crying out, Hope is dying down in everyone I meet

Troubles fill the air and play on every station, how long will we ignore this quiet desperation?

 

v.2

I know, there’s got to be a better way, than workin life’ till we die

Why we sellin’ our souls every second just to make some money on the side

Don’t you know that it all disolves down to dirt the day you die,

so why don’t we start dyin’ for some restoration

 

Ch:

Still holding on to the power of love

Blue Skies Behind the Black Clouds Above

When the sun comes out, we see we have all that we need

Brighter days are coming for you and me

 

v.3

One day we’ll see the mountain tops new

No violence or hate in a world where peace and harmony rule

Join hands with brothers and sisters of every nation, till then, we look to the skies cause we need some inspiration.

 

Br.

So we’re still holding on, yeah we’re still holding on

So we’re still holding on, yeah we’re still holding on

Quiet Desperation (I Won’t Mind At All)

I see your quiet desperation
I know you’re trying hard to fake it
Let me know when you’ve had enough of this.
Let me know when you’re ready to call it quits.
I see you’re barely holding it together
Inside you’re screaming like a kettle
Let me know when you’ve had enough of this.
Let me know when you’re ready to call it quits.
I won’t mind at all. I won’t mind at all. I won’t mind at all.
Let me know when you’ve had enough of this.
Let me know when you’re ready to call it quits.
I won’t mind at all. I won’t mind at all. I won’t mind at all.

Quiet Desperation
You, you saw it all
her body lie against the wall
no need to talk
your quiet desperation says it all
She, she saw it all
his body fly against the wall
no need to talk
their quiet desperation says it all
Shout out and bring me back to life
take us down the hall and bring the sharpest knife
no one turn the light on
no one turn the light on
no one turn the light on
no one turn the light on yet
I’m running out, we’re not afraid to die.
No need to talk
their quiet desperation says it all
