Love In The 21st Century

I don't believe in a life without consequences.
Do you believe when I say that I'm not impressed?
You say I never, Ever, Ever, Ever wanna talk again
I don't believe a single word you said.

I think I wanna run away from you, you're killing me.
But I know I wanna see you in a day or two.
I don't believe that a single word you said is true.

I guess it's
Loooooove
In the 21st century
Oh, oh it's tough
Broken heart technology
Your kisses taste so sweet
But then you click delete
Love in the 21st century
Love in the 21st century

I don't believe making out is a dead romance.
I miss the days being kids simple holding hands
I'm sick of wondering if you would ever call me back
I check my 4 different accounts just to end up being mad.

Wish I could dissect your brain apart
It takes a vivisection just to understand your heart
If we could just own up, get wound up, messed up

I guess it's
Loooooove
In the 21st century
Oh, oh it's tough
Broken heart technology
Your kisses taste so sweet
But then you click delete
Love in the 21st century
Love in the 21st century

I'm in the 21st century
Oh, it gets so critical
We become caught up in the trivial
My dear, we're both a bit too cynical
Come close, I'll give you something spiritual
Stand up and deliver me
We're in love in the 21st century

Text Me In The Morning

We danced a tango 'till our heads got dizzy
I felt your body heat: a damsel in distress
My daddy warned me not to get so busy
And suddenly I'm watching you take off your dress
I couldn't stick around

So text me in the morning
Tell me you still love me
I don't believe a single word
You tell me you're tipsy;
I tell you you're pretty
We could spend the night if you're still sure
But text me in the morning

Woke up all soaking wet from last night's fever
Smelling like cigarettes and broken promises
Your mother said: 'Don't be an overachiever.'
I please her, oh please girl, I never did believe her
And I'll never tell you why
Oh, I'll never tell a lie

So text me in the morning
Tell me you still love me
I don't believe a single word
You tell me you're tipsy;
I tell you you're pretty
We could spend the night if you're still sure
But text me in the morning

Tears on my phone
Feelin' so alone
I'll never let you go, you've got the best of me
When all the other boys just want your sex
I just want your texts
In the morning

Right, in the morning

C'mon c'mon c'mon

So text me in the morning
Tell me you still love me
I don't believe a single word
You tell me you're tipsy, I tell you you're pretty
We could spend the night if you're still sure
But text me in the morning

We danced a tango 'till our heads got dizzy
(Text me in the morning)

I felt your body heat: a damsel in distress
(Text me in the morning)

Woke up all soaking wet from last night's fever
(Text me in the morning)

Smelling like cigarettes and broken promises

Sleeping With A Friend

All my friends, they're different people
Anxious like the ocean in a storm
When we go out, yeah, we're electric
Coursing through our bodies 'til we're one

And why mess up a good thing, baby?
It's a risk to even fall in love
So, when you give that look to me
I better look back carefully
'Cause this is trouble, yeah this is trouble

I said ooh, ooh
You got me in the mood, mood
I'm scared
But if my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh, ooh we're in danger
Sleeping with a friend, sleeping with a friend

All my friends, stay up past midnight
Looking for the thing to fill the void
I don't go out much like I used to
Something 'bout the strangers and the noise

And why leave when I got you, baby?
It's a risk but babe, I need the thrill
I never said you'd be easy
But if it was all up to me
I'd be no trouble, hey, we're in trouble

I said ooh, ooh
You got me in the mood, mood
I'm scared
But if my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh, ooh we're in danger
Sleeping with a friend, sleeping with a friend

We are both young, hot-blooded people
We don't wanna die alone
Two become one, it could be lethal
Sleeping with a friend

All my friends
All my friends
All my friends
All my friends

I said ooh, ooh
You got me in the mood, mood
I'm scared
But if my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh, ooh we're in danger
Sleeping with a friend

(All my friends) Sleeping with a friend
(All my friends)
If my heart's gonna break before the night will end
I said, ooh, ooh we're in danger
Sleeping with a friend

Teenager In Love

There was a point of no return
And I never looked back
Til I was holding your hand
I was socially absurd
But who cares
Yeah, I've been shaky with withdrawals
I'm a junkie loser
I never would choose to
Live the way I do
But I do

I'll be your angel
I'll be your best friend
Take me to New York
Take me to heaven

He's a teen
A teenager in love
He's a teen
A teenager in love
What a tragic attraction
What's the point of romance?
He's a teen
A teenager in love
I'm a fool
With a curse and a crush
What a magic distraction
What's the point of romance?
I never wanted to be a teenager in love
Teenager, Teenager

There was a point when we were cool
And it never went bad
Til you were holding his hand
And I couldn't say a word
But who cares
Now I've been talking to myself
Making up a new plan on how to get you back
It'll probably never work
And I'm screwed

I'll be your angel
I'll be your best friend
I'm in my bedroom
Let's go to heaven

He's a teen
A teenager in love
He's a teen
A teenager in love
What a tragic attraction
What's the point of romance?
He's a teen
A teenager in love
I'm a fool
With a curse and a crush
What a magic distraction
What's the point of romance?
I never wanted to be a teenager in love
Teenager, Teenager

I don't wanna go out
I just wanna sit inside my bedroom
And obsess over everything I say to you
Young love is like a roller coaster
You couldn't pay me to ride if you tried
Teenager, Teenager, Ta...Ta...Ta... Teenager

He's a teen
A teenager in love
He's a teen
A teenager in love
What a tragic attraction
What's the point of romance?
He's a teen
A teenager in love
I'm a fool
With a curse and a crush
What a magic distraction
What's the point of romance?
I never wanted to be a teenager in love
What's the point of romance?
I never wanted to be a teenager in love
What's the point of romance?
In love.
Teenager, Teenager

I Love You (But I Hate Your Friends)

I drew my name in lipstick on a mirror at your sister's house
She told me I was strange, I told her, "Thanks," and kissed her on the mouth
But you don't go that way
I thought you had a thing for fancy boys
Looks can be deceiving

I love you
But I hate your friends
They're all desperate
If you knew what I know would you be ready to go?
All this emptiness would end
Stop pretending
If you knew what I know would you be ready to go?
Would you be ready to go?

They never liked the music
They bitch about how cool it 'used to be'
Somehow I can't refuse it
I dig your blatant sexuality
Oh you say I'm not that easy
I'm not sure what the hell you take me for
Honey, Looks can be deceiving

I love you
But I hate your friends
They're all desperate
If you knew what I know would you be ready to go?
All this emptiness would end
Stop pretending
If you knew what I know would you be ready to go?
Would you be ready to go?

They're always on to the next big thing
They wanna bite but they can barely sting
I never wanted you for just a fling
I hate it when you lie to me
But I just let you lie to me

I love you
But I hate your friends
They're all desperate
If you knew what I know would you be ready to go?
All this emptiness would end
Stop pretending
If you knew what I know would you be ready to go?
Would you be ready to go?

I love you [3x]
But I hate your friends

I love you [3x]
But I hate your friends

Unavoidable

I fell asleep last night to the heartbeats in my head,
I fell apart when I got home inside my bed.

I can't think, can't speak.
I can't move, can't breathe.
This is a white heart heat when you get next to me,
When I'm around you it's like waking up the dead.

My back's against the wall
Oh oh,
And I'm feelin the pressure,
Yes I'm about to fall.
Oh Oh,
What I'm feelin, it's torture.

It's unavoidable, you are a magnet.
It's unavoidable, I am metallic.
So do what you do, do what you do to me
It's unavoidable you are a magnet
Unavoidable I am metallic.
Pull me in.

It never makes much sense to me,
But that's okay
It's like my love hate relationship with LA.

It feels so right, we kiss so high.
But the feelings come and go on every night.
Yeah it won't ever take much to make me stay.
My back's against the wall.

Oh oh
And I feel it, the pressure.
I'm about to fall.
Oh oh
And i feel it , it's torture.

It's unavoidable, you are a magnet.
It's unavoidable, I am metallic.
So do what you do, do what you do to me.
It's unavoidable, you are a magnet.
It's unavoidable, I am metallic.
Pull me in

We couldn't be more polar opposites
But what you do to me is magnetic

(My back's against the wall)

And I'm about to fall

It's unavoidable, you are a magnet.
It's unavoidable, I am metallic.
So do what you do, do what you do to me
It's unavoidable, you are a magnet.
It's unavoidable, I am metallic.

Pull me in,
Pull me in,
Pull me in,
Pull me in.

Voices In The Hall

I can taste your lemonade
Bittersweet like every summer fling
And keeping up with all your stories
Talking to your ghost when I'm asleep

No you're never really dead to me
Maybe that's the mystery of us
I use to think when you were gone
I would still hear voices in the halls

I could feel the red rain on me
I can see you shaking when I kiss
You still hit me like a buzz
Seventeen and drunk enough to wish

And you really got your hooks on me
Maybe that's the punishment for love
I still stay up late at night
Trying to hear your voices in the halls

In the halls
In the halls
In the halls

You could hear me late at night
Singing to the voices in the halls
Every time we drive the coast
Heading toward Las Vegas in your car?

Playing on your broken speakers
Me asleep and warm inside your arms
No it's never like what it used to be
Maybe it's just never really was

But every night when I get home
I can hear your voices in the halls
Every night when I'm alone
I can hear your voices in the halls

Foolish Behavior

A night like this
You were wasted
Like a teenager in love
I felt your touch, it was naked
And I could not give you up.

Suddenly the room started spinning around
Oh, I couldn't wait for an answer
Fireworks and strobes bring our knees to the ground
Oh, I never thought you were a dancer

Lean in close
And don't let go

Well you started out a stranger
Foolish behavior brought us together
Tonight
Could have ran away scared
But somewhere out there
Foolish behavior seems right
I don't know if it's good
I'm misunderstood
Most of my whole damn life
Well you started out a stranger
Foolish behavior brought us together
Tonight
Tonight
Oh, Tonight

A night like this
Every minute is a prelude to the show
Face to face
Get lost in it
Your eyes can tell me where to go

Suddenly the room is a big black and white
Just like a scene from a movie
Everything's in slow motion, flashing with light
Yeah, you know how to rule me

Lean in close
And don't let go

Well you started out a stranger
Foolish behavior brought us together
Tonight
Could have ran away scared
But somewhere out there
Foolish behavior seems right
I don't know if it's good
I'm misunderstood
Most of my whole damn life
Well you started out a stranger
Foolish behavior brought us together
Tonight
Tonight

Think of the moment
Everything's on
Now set it in motion
Before it's gone, gone, gone

Well you started out a stranger

Well you started out a stranger

Well you started out a stranger
Foolish behavior brought us together
Tonight
Could have ran away scared
But somewhere out there
Foolish behavior seems right

Tonight
Think of the moment
Everything's on
Oh, Tonight

Hmm, Tonight
Now set it in motion
Before it's gone
Oh, Tonight

Living In Another World

Phone keeps ringing in another room
I'm daydreaming like a little kid at school
Caffeine, thinking of my teenage youth
I'm alive, but I can barely move

I guess I've always been this way
It's been hard for me to say
Close my eyes, it'll go away

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

They've been telling me
To come of age
I've been going through
An awkward phase
Whoaaaaaa
Whoaaaaaa
They've been trying hard to wake me up
Saying stuff that never gets me off
Whoaaaaaa
Whoaaaaaa
Don't mind me
I'm living in another world (Living in another world)
Don't mind me
I'm living in another world (Living in another world)
Whoaaaaaa

TV's telling me to be myself
I can't trust what the neon psychic sells
So I found out how to trust myself
I found out I'm stronger than the pills

I guess I've always been this way
It's been hard for me to say
Close my eyes, take me away

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

They've been telling me
To come of age
I've been going through
An awkward phase
Whoaaaaaa
Whoaaaaaa
They've been trying hard to wake me up
Saying stuff that never gets me off
Whoaaaaaa
Whoaaaaaa
Don't mind me
I'm living in another world (Living in another world)
Don't mind me
I'm living in another world (Living in another world)
Whoaaaaaa

These are nights I feel I could die
Four chords and a beat keep me alive
You can barely recognize
Everything beyond my eyes
I've been going through it my whole life

These are nights I feel I could die
Four chords and a beat keep me alive
You can barely recognize
Everything beyond my eyes
I've been going through it my whole life

They've been telling me
To come of age
I've been going through
An awkward phase
Whoaaaaaa
Whoaaaaaa
They've been trying hard to wake me up
Saying stuff that never gets me off
Whoaaaaaa
Whoaaaaaa
Don't mind me
I'm living in another world (Living in another world)
Don't mind me
I'm living in another world (Living in another world)
Whoaaaaaa
Whoaaaaaa

First Things First

You are never gonna get
Everything you want in this world
First things first
Get what you deserve

It began when I was twenty-one years old
And my mom and dad were begging me to go
So I left a note and we went and hit the road
Me and Chris and all the stuff I own

I went out to find my soul and left the only comfort that I know
It wasn't 'bout a girl or even California bleeding
It was all about me choosing where to go

And I sing
You are never gonna get
Everything you want in this world
First things first
Get what you deserve

You are never gonna get
Everything you want in this world
First things first
Get what you deserve

There were years I felt like everything was new
Long before the troubles of my youth
There were days and nights I couldn't see the end
And I swear the music was my only friend

You learn to lie about forgiveness
When you choose to let down all your pride
I don't wanna be so famous
I just want to sing until I die

So sing it
You are never gonna get
Everything you want in this world
First things first
Get what you deserve

You are never gonna get
Everything you want in this world
First things first
Get what you deserve

When I wish upon a star
I'll tell it how I got this far

It began when I learn how to face myself
And I'm still deciding if I'm something else
I'm a million different people all the time
But there's only one of me to get it right

You are never gonna get
Everything you want in this world
First things first
Get what you deserve
[x4]
