Alt. Lyrics

[billy: ok]
[james: nice, uh, sound you've got...]
[jimmy: ready?]

pop tart, what's the matter?
did you lose what you're after?
for your tears, i'm still singing
for your fears, i am ringing
from houston on downer buzz
like you said, it's just because

you'll detonate your long lost kisses
wished on the eve of forgotten blessings
start your way for some new impression

try to hold on
for this heart, a little bit stronger
try to hold on
to this love alone
try to hold on
for this heart's never been broken
so try to hold on
try to hold on

pop tart, did you flatter?
when they spoke of my disasters
at thirteen i lost my compass
but i'm sure it's all accomplished
as desires on my ghost trains
like you said, when it rains

it pours down the back of the bitter son
desperate for love and loves everyone
in my mother's arms no simple harm

conspires to hold on
for this heart, a little bit closer
try to hold on
to this love alone
try to hold on
and we know if we go under
we just can't let go
no, no

pop tart, will it matter?
if i lose and just shatter
will you cry, and keep crying
will i die, and keep dying
in tokyo, with sad tragic blues
like you said it's how you use

'cause someday we'll know if this even matters
our rings and maze and simplicity
when can we laugh and take all the credit

and know we'll go free
with our hearts a little bit stronger
try to hold on
for this love alone
try to hold on
for this heart's a little bit frightened
just try to hold on
just try to hold on
just try

[let's roll back a little bit]

  Normal Lyrics

pop tart
what's our mission
do we know
but never listen
for too long
they held me under
but i hear
it's almost over
in detroit
on a memphis train
like you said

it's down in the heat and the summer rain of
the automatic gauze of your memories
down in the sleep at the airplane races

try to hold on
to this heart
a little bit longer
try to hold on
to this love
aloud
try to hold on
for this heart's
a little bit colder
try to hold on
to this love

paperback scrawl your hidden poem
written around the dried out flowers
here we are still trading places
to try to hold on

pop tart
can you envision
a free world
of clear division
for too long
they held us under
but i know
we're getting over
in detroit
with the nashville tears
like you said

it's down in the heat with the broken numbers
down in the gaze of solemnity
down in the way you held together

to try to hold on
to this heart
a little bit closer
try to hold on
to this love
aloud
try to hold on
for this heart's
a little bit older
try to hold on
to this love
aloud

and we are still alive
try to hold on
and we have survived
try to hold on
and no one should deny
we try to hold on
to the pulse of a feedback current
into the flow of the cryptic movement
slapback kills the ancient remnants
that try to hold on

try to hold on
to this heart
alive
try to hold on
to this love
aloud
try to hold on
and we are still alive
try to hold on
and we have survived
try to hold on
pop tart
you never listen
skinned knees
try to hold on
stop start
what's our mission
skinned knees
try to hold on
