These Magnificent Miles: On the Long Road With Red Wanting Blue


Selling Tomorrow Lyrics

(Model Citizen Album - 2000)

Gimme a piggyback ride 
Your memories go round me so tightly 
For you I'd sell all my tomorrows to keep you today 
Gimme your conscience to break 
I don't care, I've got heartache at stake 
And for you I'd sell all my tomorrows to keep you today 

I will not pretend 
This bracelet defends everything 
And now I've got to stop 
Gone livin my life like it's only a rehearsal 
Remember our shows on parking garage rooftops we'd stare... 
At a world, wild, and willing out there 
And for you I'd sell all my tomorrow's to keep you today 

I wanna see the darker side of paradise 
Lottery queen, I'm rolling the dice 
You're my trophy for all of my dreams that tackle me 
With memories like... 
Phantoms in my sleep 
On parking garage rooftops we'd stare 
I was your lover 
No courage to dare 
And now you and I fall 
I'd give you it all today 

Crystal and consequence shatter on regret and cement 
You are a cavalry for the broken hearted 
And I am a pirate for the lost and departed 

There will be no daydreaming 
Today my secrets revolted and ran away to tell everyone that I'm desert bound again, again 
To dream for more 
Your cactus heart 
I've found the sweetest sting 
I wanna suck the salt from your skin tonight 
Gonna make you taste so sweet again and on... 
You move like crosses on the sinning heart of a man who don't know what to believe 
Other than the girl 
I'm shaking, I'm shaking 
Caution, contents are no longer what they appear to be anymore
