Konstantine

This is the greatest song I’ve ever downloaded. It’s a nine minute thirty-seven second epic of a B-side. Even if it’s just for the piano parts, it’s awesome. I highly recommend that you try to own it.

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 im naked.
You gotta get out,
You cant stand to see me shakin – no.
Could u let me go?
I didnt think so.
And you dont wanna be here in the future
So you say the present’s just a pleasant interruption to the past.
And you dont wanna look much closer
Cause you’re afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had crashed.
And it did,
Because of me.

And then you bring me home.
Afraid to find out that you’re alone,
Oh, and Im sleeping in your living room.
But we dont 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 damnit, you’re so young.
Well i dont think i care,
And if i hurt you
Then im sorry.
Please dont think that this was easy.

And then you bring me home.
Afraid to find out that you’re alone,
Oh, and I’m sleeping in your living room.
But we dont have much room to live.

And Konstantine is walking down the stairs –
Doesnt she look good,
Standing in her underware?
And I was thinking
What I was thinking.
We’ve been drinkin and it doesnt get me anywhere.

My Konstantine came walking down the stairs,
and all that I could do was touch her long blonde hair.
And I’ve been thinking,
But it hurts me thinking,
That these nights when we were drinking
No, they never got us anywhere.
No.

This is because I can spell confusion with a ‘K’
And I can like it.
It’s to dying in another’s arms,
And why I had to try it.
It’s 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 lie with my mistakes
And live with what I did to you,
All the hell I put you through.
I always catch the clock,
Its 11 past 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.
Hey, 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.
Hey, maybe,
Baby you could keep me up in bed,
My Konstanine.

You spin around me like a dream
We played out on this movie screen
and I said:
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed 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,
Cause 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…
