Something corporate - Konstantine (live)

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
But I can't stand here in a patch of four leaf clover
And you're restless, and I'm naked
You've got to get out
You can't stand to see me shakin'
No, could you let me go?

And you don't wanna be here in the future
So you say the present's 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 crashed
And it did because of me

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 don't have much room to live

And I had dreams that I would learn 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
It's just this guilt has got the best of me

And then you bring me home
Cause we both know what it's 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 coming down the stairs
Doesn't she look good, standing in her underwear?
And I've been thinking, what I've been thinking, no
But she's been drinking, and it doesn't get me anywhere

And Konstantine came walking down the stairs
All that I could do was touch her long, blonde hair
And I've was thinkin', what I was thinkin'
You know that we've been drinking
And it doesn't get me anywhere

This is because
I can spell "konfusion" with a 'K'
It's hard to 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
But this time I'm alone
And I don't see those stars
I'm not your star
Isn't that what you said
What you thought this song meant
You thought this song meant


And if this is what it takes
To lie in my mistakes
And live with what I did to you
And all the things I put you through
I always catch the clock
It's 11:11, and now you wanna talk
It's not hard to dream
You'll always be 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 these pretty things she did
Hey, baby, you know
That you keep me up in bed

It's 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 Konstantine

You spin around me like a dream
We played out on this movie screen
And I said
Did you know I've missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I missed you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Oh God, I miss you

And then you bring me home
And we'll go to sleep
But this time not alone, no, no
And you'll kiss me in your living room
Oh, and you see, no
What I've been missing in my living room
Cause it's all you, yeah
This is what I've missed, what I miss

We don't have much room
I said does anybody really need that room?
'Cause we all need a little bit of room
To live

My Konstantine
