life is a journey uncertain as its destination may be am I returning or whirling off into some unknown territory? well I don't really care how it ends cause I just want to see you again and I finally found the end of the road and the best thing about it is that I found you standing there at the end of the road my life was such a mess, now it's only so much such bliss with you whistling past all the brushes with death just as fast as I could racing along 'til I ran out of breath on the sacred ground where you stood yeah, you gave me my second wind you made it so easy to start all over again I finally found the end of the road when I kicked past that last cobblestone I found you standing there at the end of the road now it's friends and endless summertimes eternity sublime with you

So Alone 02:35
Sometimes this love's too much for me and I don't wanna be in it no part of it alone is where I wanna be an old home locked away inside of me so alone I wanna be so alone so alone I wanna be so alone I don't have imagination I just wanna tell it like it is how it is that this world and this love and the sweetness of life it's too much I'll run away inside of me so alone I wanna be so alone so alone I wanna be so

I can see you I can feel you I can taste the pain of your goodbye Goodbye goodbye goodbye I reveal what I conceal: the way I feel and so I say goodbye so I say goodbye goodbye I shiver under blankets made from Memories of you And I cry Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye. I wrap myself up tighter cuz they’re all I have to keep me And I cry… Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye. so I say goodbye goodbye

I wish I could say that I'm perfect and not just confused I beat myself up over everything try too hard to look cool It's hard to convince the whole world you're ok when you know that it just isn't true Now I'm tipping my hat as I step off the cliff cuz it's better to be the fool I wish I could say that I'm brave and more honest I wish I could say that I knew how to tell you the truth when you ask how I am what the hell am I trying to prove? with my endless to do lists and phone calls to answer too many things to get through but why toss and turn wrestling with wish I could says when it's better to be the fool when I'm gone they'll fight over my cars and CDs dump my ashes in some box and kinda forget about me. dust that gathers dust a fading memory nobody noticed my endless mistakes but me -- only me -- just me under my mountain of wish I could says are my dreams that could've come true let myself off the hook as I dance off the cliff it's better to be the fool the butt of the joke is the part you remember it's better to be the fool

The night can be so unsure a time of fear, a time of wonder will life go on? will the morning come? will we die before we wake? When I awake will you be there? I wonder will I see you, sparkling every day would be so, so wrong if I awoke and you were gone But every morning's leap of faith I make with childlike anticipation when I open up my eyes and there you are, there you are all my sweetest dreams come true cuz there you are I fall asleep in your milky arms your breath is the dewy breeze in my mind at night (but yet) my faith is tested by sleep will you be there when I awake? When I awake will you be there? I wonder will I see you, sparkling every day would be so, so wrong if I awoke and you were gone But every morning's leap of faith I make with childlike anticipation when I open up my eyes and there you are, there you are all my sweetest dreams come true cuz there you are

I made a list of my favorite things and you're on it and I thought about my favorite dessert well, it's you so I thought I should give you a gift a little something (like a thank you) just to thank you for all that you are and all that you do so close your eyes, it's a surprise. Ready? Good. Then I can sing my... song to fall in love to in the summertime for you it's the best thing I could think of, I hope you like it, too a song to fall in love to in the summertime for you and I wish I could sing it forever I rode a bicycle built for two to your window and I really wish you would come along for a ride so close your eyes, it's a surprise ready? good. then I can sing my... song to fall in love to in the summertime for you it's the best thing I could think of, I hope you like it, too a song to fall in love to in the summertime for you put the radio on, and every song as it comes on I'll dedicate to you they're all... songs to fall in love to in the summertime with you every one our favorite, each one just for you songs to fall in love to in the summertime for you it's a song about beautiful weather it's a song for us a song about being together

I guess that was the last time that I'll see you for a while but I'm hoping I can leave each one of you with a smile so let me ease your minds, let me alleviate your fear things are great the food is fine but I'm so glad that you're not here and when it's time to join me on the other side my dear you'll be stuck with me forever so be glad that you're not here

So Far Away 02:48
You're so far away so far away from me I look into my the dark your face light I do not see there, shining and if I walk away and if I walk away I'm free free to dance the night away— free to see the sky is falling then I don't mind anymore that you're not mine anymore so (and) don't think you'll find me waiting outside your door as the fog in my heart clears now I finally can see if I can dance each night away I'd rather dance without you, darling cuz I don't mind anymore that you're not mine anymore so don't think you'll find me waiting outside your door

Oh give me land, lots of land Under starry skies above Don't fence me in Let me ride through the wide open country that I love Don't fence me in Let me be by myself in the evening breeze and listen to the murmur of the cottonwood trees send me off forever but I ask you please Don't fence me in just turn me loose let me straddle my old saddle underneath the western skies on my cayuse let me wander over yonder til I see the mountains rise I want to ride to the ridge where the west commences and gaze at the moon til I love my senses and I can't look at hovels and I can't stand fences don't fence me in no, papa don't you fence me in

Foot after foot—it feels like I'm floating my old house disappears behind me like morning I latched that last window and shut my last door I think I remembered the lights now I'm leaving, leaving this town I didn't want to go so soon but I'm leaving, leaving this town so you won't see me around sometimes this life isn't what we expected prayers don't get answered dreams don't come true like I never had courage to say how I loved you so I'm leaving this note behind as I'm leaving, leaving this town cuz I've said all I wanted and I've done all I hoped for I'm leaving, leaving this town cuz you don't want me around now I'm leaving, leaving this town I've seen all I wanted—I did all I could leaving, leaving this town—cuz you don't want me around now I'm leaving, leaving this town I've said all I wanted and done all I hoped for leaving, leaving this town cuz you don't want me around

It's time to fly away from here; it's time to fly away my dear. Look into the sky, and how it's missing you! It's time to fly away my dear. So fly so far away, take your love away! Can you go—can you go— go so far away? Can anyone ever go away? As far as they dream? As far as far away seems? Can anyone ever go away? I don't know... So fly so far away, take your love away!

I never loved you like you thought I did before. The truth comes out, I loved you more. And now you walked out, it doesn't matter anymore. The truth's too late, I loved you more. I know I don't know a way to turn back time and I can't erase this image in my mind of moment's lost, a chance I missed a dream I will not find. But it's all too late, it's all too late, the tears fall on the floor. I never loved you like you thought I did before. The truth comes out, I loved you more. And now you walked out, it doesn't matter anymore. The truth's too late, I loved you more.

about

Justin Winokur California

Justin Winokur's lush, quirky indie-pop shines a light on the sad beauty of heartbreak. He recently finished his third full- length album, Throwing Paper Airplanes Off A Bridge, which for him, became its own journey of self realization. This intimate tour of his loves, losses, and hopes feels like reading a stranger's diary—and realizing that the handwriting and every single story is your own. ... more
