Oh My My Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Let's Hurt Tonight

When, when we came home
Worn to the bones
I told myself, "this could get rough"
And when, when I was off, which happened a lot
You came to me and said, "that's enough"

Oh I know that this love is pain
But we can't cut it from out these veins, no

So I'll hit the lights and you lock the doors
We ain't leaving this room 'til we break the mold
Don't walk away, don't roll your eyes
They say love is pain, well darling, let's hurt tonight

When, when you came home
Worn to the bones
I told myself, "this could be rough"

Oh, I know you're feeling insane
Tell me something that I can explain, oh

I'll hit the lights and you lock the doors
Tell me all of the things that you couldn't before
Don't walk away, don't roll your eyes
They say love is pain, well darling, let's hurt tonight
If this love is pain, well darling, let's hurt, oh tonight

So you hit the lights and I'll lock the doors
Let's say all of the things that we couldn't before
Won't walk away, won't roll my eyes
They say love is pain, well darling, let's hurt tonight
If this love is pain, then honey let's love tonight

Future Looks Good

Woke up starin' at this, starin' at this empty room
Looked at thousand different pictures that your mother took of you
You see I had this crazy dream last night - this man, he talked to me
He told me everything that's good and bad about my history

But he said that you are, you are the future
He said that you are, you are the future
And the future looks good
The future looks good

Oh call me any time that every time you're losin' it
And tell me anyone and everyone who makes you feel like shit
Because you know anybody, everybody else can lie
But honey I won't see you with a, see you with a broken set of eyes

I swear that you are, you are the future
I swear that you are, you are the future
And the future looks good
Oh, yeah
The future looks good
Oh, yeah

The future looks good
Oh, yeah
The future looks good
Oh, yeah

You, you, you
You, you, you

Woke up starin' at this, starin' at this empty room
Looked at thousand different pictures that your mother took of you

Oh My My

Days are long, life's so short
It's a crazy world, the moment we call life
Taking off across the sea
Touchdown, city full of lights
Looked around when there is no one in the room
There's a bar and they call for me and you
Floating up like there's water underneath
From the desert to the shining sea

Just what I wanted, you're just what I wanted
Just what I wanted, oh, my, my (Oh, my, my)
Look around, you're just what I wanted (Just what I wanted)
Just what I wanted (Just what I wanted)
Just what I wanted, I'm alright
I'm alright (Just what I wanted, just what I wanted, you're just what I wanted)
Oh my, my (Just what I wanted, just what I wanted, you're just what I wanted)
I'm alright, I'm alright

Days are long, life's so short
It's a crazy world when we meet, we try
Taking across the sea
Touchdown, festivals, night
Looked around at the faces in the room
People shouting, they're saying parlez-vous
Floating up like there's water underneath
I'm the desert, you're the shining sea

Just what I wanted, you're just what I wanted
Just what I wanted, oh, my, my (Oh, my, my)
Look around, you're just what I wanted (Just what I wanted)
Just what I wanted (Just what I wanted)
Just what I wanted, I'm alright
I'm alright (Just what I wanted, just what I wanted, you're just what I wanted)
Oh my, my (Just what I wanted, just what I wanted, you're just what I wanted)
I'm alright, I'm alright

All that I've seen, I could feel it (I've been to so many places)
Show me your eyes (I've seen the brightest lights, the darkest nights)
All that I've seen (All the things that I have seen)
You are (I swear that you are) you are

Just what I wanted (come on, come on)
You're just what I wanted
All my life
I found you
You're just what I wanted (You are)Just what I wanted
All my life
Look around you (Oh, oh, come on)
Oh my, my (yeah)

Just what I wanted (Just what I wanted)
Just what I wanted (Just what I wanted)
You're just what I wanted all my life
Oh my, my

Kids

Days when
We'd fight, we'd fight 'til I would give in
Yeah, perfect disasters
We were reaching, reaching for the rafters

And on most of the days we were searching for ways
To get up and get out of the town that we were raised, yeah, Cause we were done
I remember, we were sleeping in cars
We were searching for OZ
We were burning cigars
With white plastics tips 'til we saw the sun
And we said crazy things like

I refuse to look back thinking days were better
Just because they're younger days
I don't know what's 'round the corner
Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change
Back when we were kids
Swore we would never die
You and me were kids
Swear that we'll never die

Lights down
And we drive and we're drivin' just to get out
Yeah, perfect disasters
Yeah we were swinging, swinging from the rafters

Hey, we were dancing in cars
We were looking for ours
We were naming the stars
After people we knew 'til we had to go
And we were saying things like

I refuse to look back thinking days were better
Just because they're younger days
I don't know what's 'round the corner
Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change
Back when we were kids
Swore we would never die
You and me were kids
Swear that we'll never die

Nights when we kept dancing
Changing all our plans and
Making every day a holiday
Feel the years start burning
City lights they're turning
Something 'bout this feels the same

Back when we were kids
Swore we would never die
You and me were kids
Swear that we'll never die
I refuse to look back thinking days were better
Just because they're younger days
I don't know what's 'round the corner
Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change

You and me were kids

Dream

When I was younger
You told me I should get my shit together
You said life is a painting
But all your colors always bleed together
Woo all the times you said I wasn't just quite right
Woo and all I was trying to do was search for a light

When you said look for your sunshine it's not there
I told myself that I don't care
I found some new innovations
Might just be my imagination
But people can dream

When I was younger
You told me I should get my shit together
Because life is a painting
But you ain't trying to show me you ain't clever
Woo for all the times you said I wasn't just quite right

But you said look for your sunshine it's not there
I told myself that I don't care
I found some new innovations
Might just be my imagination
People can dream (People can dream, people can dream, people can dream)
Yeah

In my dark days and night
It might've been just a dream
In these dark days and night
I'll be more than what you see
In my dark there's a light
It might've been just a dream
In these dark days and night (Dark days and night)

Oh when I was younger
You told me I should get my shit together (People can dream)
When I was younger
So why your colors always bleed together

People can dream
People can dream
People can dream

Choke

Well I see breakfast on the table
And I can smell you in the halls
Lord knows I'd cry if I was able
But that won't get me through tomorrow
And no it's not like I was counting
Or thought that we'd run out of days
So I'll be holding onto something
Breathing the air you took away

I, I'll keep a picture of you one the wall, of you on the wall
And choke on the memories
I'll keep a message of you if you call, of you if you call
And choke on the memories
Choke, choke, yeah
Choke, choke

Well I've been looking for some new worlds
To say just how you got to me
I wrote some letters that I might burn
Cause then you're not just history
Oh and I see your clothes in the closet
I hear your phone ringing in the drawer
I'm not hoping for an answer
I'm just knocking at your door, oh

I keep your picture of you on the wall, of you on the wall
And choke on the memories
I'll keep a message of you if you call, of you if you call
Choke, choke, yeah
Choke, choke, yeah
I'll keep a picture of you on the wall, of you on the wall
And choke on the memories
I'll keep the message of you if you call, of you if you call
Choke, choke, yeah
Choke, choke, yeah

Well I see breakfast on the table
And I can smell you in the halls

A.I.

[Ryan Tedder:]
'Member when we met?
We fell in love on a Sunday
Yeah I'll never forget
The way that you spelled my name
It took me a year
To find a new attraction
My hope and my fear
Is human interaction

Yeah I just want my love automatic
If artificial love makes sense
I just want your love, I'm an addict
Artificial intelligence

Artificial
Artificial

[Peter Gabriel:]
Remember when we met?
I got obsessed on a Monday
And I'll never forget
I felt such a cliche
I'm wanting to be there
Dreaming of your soft skin
With no emotion
You can really make my head spin

[Ryan Tedder & Peter Gabriel:]
Yeah I just want my love automatic
If artificial love makes sense
I just want your love, I'm an addict
Artificial intelligence
Yeah I just want my love automatic
If artificial love makes sense
I just want your love, I'm an addict
Artificial intelligence

[Ryan Tedder:]
Artificial
Artificial

I just want my love automatic
If artificial love makes sense
I just want your love, I'm an addict
Artificial intelligence

[Peter Gabriel:]
You're so too real
Love the way you love me
Artificial intelligence
Way you love me
Love the way you love me
It's so clear
You make everything inside me feel
Just automatic hurt
Bring me back tonight
Cause you're intelligent, so real
So real

Better

I don't set alarms
Lately I don't set alarms
But that's because of the ringing that's happening inside my head
Inside my head
Yeah yeah
It keeps me safe from harm
At least I tell myself I'm safe from harm
But really it's probably filling my dreams with dread
So I get out of bed
Yeah yeah
Yes I'm neurotic I'm obsessed and I know it
I can't take vacations and the brain won't believe me I'm on one
Hawaii under warm sun
Yeah yeah

I think I lost my mind
Don't worry about me
Happens all the time
In the morning I'll be better
In the morning I'll be better
Sing it again
I think I lost my mind
But don't worry about me
Happens all the time
In the morning I'll be better
Things are only getting better
Sing it again

I'll tell myself I'll change
That's right I tell myself I'll change
But then I begin to realize that the problems inside my veins
But it's inside my veins (vein)
Yeah yeah
I swear I'm not insane
Yes most likely not insane
Everybody goes through moments of losing their clarity
At least I'm never boring
But I've been losing sleep so call the doctor said to take one of these
And call me in the morning

I think I lost my mind
Don't worry about me
Happens all the time
In the morning I'll be better
In the morning I'll be better
Sing it again
I think I lost my mind
But don't worry about me
Happens all the time
In the morning I'll be better
Things are only getting better
Sing it again
Sing it again

So here's the question asked
Of all the things you love the people places from the future to your ancient past
Of every one of those which one will cause you to let it go let it go
Need to crash

Think you lost your mind
Well don't worry about it
Happens all the time
In the morning you'll be better
Things are only getting better
Sing it again
I think I lost my mind
Don't worry about me
Happens all the time
In the morning I'll be better
In the morning I'll be better
Sing it again
I think I lost my mind
But don't worry about me
(But that's because of the ringing that's happening inside my head)
Happens all the time
In the morning I'll be better
(Inside my head)
Things are slowly getting better
Sing it again

Born

I was born, born to love you
I was born, born to love you
Bust through the door said what's your name
Looking for somebody and you match the shame
Now don't lie
Don't lie

You've seen me television and you know what's up
The worlds gone crazy and you're mighty stuck
So don't lie
So don't lie
I said here that's where I'll be living until my times up
Yeah found someone to keep my head up
Yeah trading darkness for the dawn
I was born, born to love you
I was born, born to love you

Lost in stars since she was a girl
She dreamt of a place of a better world
It felt like sunlight
Tired of the days living in the dark
She ran to the place where wild things are
It felt right
Cause it felt right
She said here is where I'll be living until my times up yeah
Found my people now I'm made up
Always dark before the dawn
Always dark before the dawn
I was born, born to love you
I was born, born to love you

I said here is where I'll be living until my times up
I said here I found my people now I'm made up yeah
I was born, I was born in the city born and raised
I was born, I was born in the city all my friends are here
I was born in the city born and raised
I was born in the city all my friends are here
I was born inside
No woo I woo I...

Fingertips

We were running from the waves on the shallows
Trying to keep ourselves alone and out of sight
All right, all right, all right
You were talking about the night when I cashed out
Traded glances as I stole your lovers light
All right, all right, all right
That's how I recall it and you and I

I remember it, it was a night just like this
One of those moments that just slip
But you just feel it from your heart to your fingertips, yeah
And I remember it, it was a late summer bliss
One of those moments that just slip
But you feel it from your heart to your fingertips, yeah

And I remember you, you were first on my list
One of those moments that just slip
But you feel it from your heart to your fingertips, yeah
I remember us, you were a late summer bliss
One of those moments that just slips
But you feel it from your heart to your fingertips, yeah

We were drinking from the same old glasses
That we borrowed from my roommate down the hall, hall, hall
Down the hall and you were like
I remember it, it was a night just like this
One of those moments that just slip
But you feel it from your heart to your fingertips, yeah
And I remember it, it was a late summer bliss
One of those moments that just slip
But you feel it from your heart to your fingertips, yeah

Human

Yesterday I talked to god we had a conversation
Told him that I'm sorry I lost communication
But I just, I just needed some holiness
I said that the things that I've been trying end up in frustration
Life ain't what it seems in any situation
Then he said, he said the strangest thing

He said how does it feel to be human
Does some of the best plans you make get ruined
Do people curse you and flowers ain't blooming
How does it feel
He said how does it feel to be human
If I could for one day I just might do it
Dance till the sun comes up to my music
How does it feel
How's it feel

Yesterday I talked to god we had a conversation
I asked him why this life is a crazy combination
The numbers, numbers, numbers we can't read
Yeah for sure I got some friends but we got complications
Most of us are happy with some medication
But I could, I could really use some wings

He said how does it feel to be human
Cause some of the best plans I make get ruined
Do people curse you and flowers ain't blooming
How does it feel
He said how does it feel to be human
If I could for one day I might just do it
Dance till the sun comes up to my music
How does it feel
How's it feel
How's it feel

How does it feel to be human
If I could for just one day I might just do it
Dance till the sun comes up to my music
How does it feel
How's it feel
(Just one day)
How does it feel to be human
If I could for one day I might just do it
Dance till the sun comes up to my music
How does it feel
How's it feel
How's it feel

Lift Me Up

If I told you I was down I was down would you help me
Told you I was down I was down would you lift me up
I need your strength I'll be up someday
If I told you I was down I was down would you lift me up

I have this human love
It shattered once or twice
It pulls me up and down
If it's filled with jagged ice
Everyday I'm wanting something I ain't having

I have this human heart
My mother told me so
She said this shit can go to pieces boy be careful
But you and me and me and you got something magic
So I say to you

If I told you I was down I was down would you help me
Told you I was down I was down would you lift me up
I need your strength I'll be up someday
If I told you I was down I was down would you lift me up

If I told you I was broke I was broke would you fix me
Told you I was down to the line would you lift me up
I need your strength I'll be up someday
If I told you I was down I was down would you lift me up
Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up

I have this human love
My mother told me so
She said this world could bring you down so don't be swinging low
Cause you and me and me and you got something magic
So I say to you

If I told you I was down I was down would you help me
Told you I was down I was down would you lift me up
I need your strength I'll be up someday
If I told you I was down I was down would you lift me up
Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up

I got my problems but I don't need you to solve them and I don't care
Like it in that all my shit is right there
I wear my issues like tattoos across my chest
And people notice I tell them you ain't seen nothing yet
Brother lift me, brother lift me
Lift me up and be my strength I'll be up someday
If I told you I was down, I was down
Lift me up, lift me up, lift me up, lift me up

I got my problems but I don't need you to solve them and I don't care
Like it in that all my shit is right there
I wear my issues like tattoos across my chest
And people notice I tell them you ain't seen nothing yet
Brother lift me

NbHD

Mother said don't pack your bags
We ain't got no time for that
They shut the lights off in our neighborhood
Don't know if we're coming back

I saw signs on the video
I saw signs looking back but you never know
Sunrise on the radio
Said the sharp bulbs long lines
The false signs come in stereo
Tip of my scale is like a wave and I figured on
Don't know if I can let it go
I ain't got more time
So don't look down don't close your eyes

Fly closer to heaven and far from hell
Fly put your wings up so put your wings up
Fly far from the city we knew so well
Fly so put your wings up put your wings up
Time we say goodbye to the neighborhood

Mother said don't pack your bags
We ain't got no time for that
We'll witch our names up in our neighborhood
We'll make sure we don't attract

I saw signs on the video
I saw signs looking back but you never know
A sunrise on the radio
Said the sharp bulbs long lines
The false signs come in stereo
Tip of my scale is like a wave and I figured on
Don't know if I can let it go
I ain't got more time
So don't look down don't close your eyes

Fly closer to heaven and far from hell
Fly put your wings up so put your wings up
Fly far from the city we knew so well
Fly so put your wings up put your wings up
Time we say goodbye to the neighborhood

Do you hear us do you see my face I want the world to know
What are we now for the love like animals just to find a home
Searching the horizon for a sign
All I see is dark but I sail on
I can hear my heart beat harder
I'm still here but not much farther
Now we sit now we walk
Now they turn us back down
I don't speak I don't stop
I just keep on moving

Fly closer to heaven and far from hell
Fly put your wings up so put your wings up
Fly far from the city we know so well
Fly so put your wings up so put your wings up
Time we say goodbye

Wherever I Go

I know I could lie but I'm telling the truth
Wherever I go there's a shadow of you
I know I could try looking for something new
But wherever I go, I'll be looking for you

Some people lie but they're looking for magic
Others are quietly going insane
I feel alive when I'm close to the madness
No easy love could ever make me feel the same

I know I could lie, but I won't lie to you
Wherever I go, you're the ghost in the room
I don't even try looking for something new
Cause wherever I go, I'll be looking for you

Some people try but they can't find the magic
Others get down on their knees and they pray
I come alive when I'm close to the madness
No easy love could ever make me feel the same
Make me feel the same
Make me feel the same, same, same

I know I could lie but I'm telling the truth
Wherever I go there's a shadow of you
I know I could try looking for something new
But wherever I go, I'll be looking for you
Wherever I go, I'll be looking for you, you

Some people pray to their God for some magic
Cause no easy love could ever make them feel the same
No easy love could ever make me feel the same
Make me feel the same, same, same

I know I could lie but I'm telling the truth
Wherever I go there's a shadow of you
I know I could try looking for something new
But wherever I go, I'll be looking for you

You think it's a lie when I'm telling the truth
Wherever I go, I'll be looking for you
Wherever I go, I'll be looking for you
Looking for you, looking for you, ah

Colors

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

I think it's time that I told you
I'm a fan of your universe
And every shade that you offer
It's different but I know it works
I'm addicted to the magic
And the glow of the city lights
I felt it in my veins just didn't know how to say it right

She said do you see me in black and white
Do you need me every day and night
I said I don't wanna dance with another
We could feel this darkness with each other

Cause when I look at you I see colors
When I look at you I see colors

Everyone's got their own light
Some shine and they fade away
Everyone's got a story
Those change every single day

She said do you see me in shades of grey
Do you need me like I need you that way
I say I don't wanna lay with another
We could feel this quiet with each other

Cause when I look at you I see colors
When I look at you I see colors
I see woo colors
I see woo colors

Every time I look at you lately
I see colors they're changing
Every time I look at you lately
I see colors
I see you in black and white
I see you in the brightest light

Yeah when I look at you colors
When I look at you I see colors
When I look at you I see woo colors
I see woo colors

The Less I Know

(Deluxe Edition Bonus Track)

All my life I've been waiting for something
Realized I've been waiting so long I think it's you
But you confuse me
Tell me up I'll be walking down stairs
Tell me down I'll be climbing up
I think it's crazy and it tortures me
Oh call me late call me liar call me anything oh just call me

Babe won't you tell me where you got engrossed
I said babe want to take it fast or slow
I swear the more I get to know you the less I know

All the weight that we've thrown on each other
All the way just to figure out I don't like you
And you don't like me
Yeah
All the lies all the dancing around and
All the times I came home late
You know that oh cause you know me
Call me late call me crazy call me anything but just call me
