By Andrew McMahon for you

I can't imagine all the people that you know
And the places that you go
When the lights are turned down low
And I don't understand all the things you've seen
But I'm slipping in between
You and your big dreams
It's alwayS you
In my big dreams
And you tell me that its over
Wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clovers
And your restless
And I'm naked
You gotta get out
You cant stand to see me shaking
Could u let me go?
I didn't think so
And you don't wanna be here in the future
So you say the presents just a pleasant interruption to the past
And you don't wanna look much closer
Cause you're afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had
And it did
Because of me

And then you bring me home
Afraid to find out that your alone oh
And I'm sleeping in your living room
But we don't have mucH room to live

And i had these dreams in them i learned to play guitar
Maybe cross the country
Become a rock star
And there was hope in me that I could take you there
But damn it you're so young
Well I don't think i care
And if i hurt you
Then I'm sorry
Please don't think that this was easy

And then you bring me home
Cause we both know what its like to be alone oh
And I'm dreaming in your living room
But we don't have much room to live

And KonstantinE is walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good
Standing in her underwear
And I was thinking
What I was thinking
We've been drinking and it doesn't get me anywhere
My Konstantine came walking down the stairs
And all that i could do was touch her long blond hair
And I've been thinking
But it hurts me thinking
That these nights when we were drinking
No they never got us anywhere

This is because i can spell confusion with a 'K'
And i can like it
Its to dying in anothers arms
And why i had to try it
Its to jimmy eat world
And those nights in my car
When the first star you see
May not be a star
I'm not your star
Isn't that what you said
What you thought this song meant

And if this is what it takes
Just to Laugh at my mistakes
And live with what i did to you
All the hell i put you through
I always catch the clock
Its 11:11
Now you wanna talk
Its not hard to dream
You'll always be my Konstantine
My Konstantine
They'll never hurt you like i do
No they'll never hurt you like i do
No,no,no, no, no, no, no, no

This is to a girl
Who got into my head
With all the pretty things she did
You know
You keep me up in bed
This is to a girl
Who got into my head
With all these fucked up things i did
Baby you could keep me up in bed
My Konstantine

You spin around me Like a dream
We played out on this movie screen
And i said
Did u know i miss you?
I miss you

And then you bring me home
And we go to sleep
But this time not alone
And i know
And you'll kiss me in your living room
I know
I know you miss me in your living room
Cuz these nights i think
Maybe that i miss you in my living room
But we don't have much room
I said does anybody need that room
Because we all need a little more room
To live

MY Konstantine...
