lyrics

take those flowers from your hair, this is oakland.
i was broke beyond repair, but you were open.
if there's gonna be a flame, then you just set the world on fire… so take those flowers from your hair, this is everything we knew.

cinderella, please forgive me! i'm wide awake, you're barely dreaming, and i can't sleep til i get your colors all out of my head.
cinderella, please believe me: i'm trying to change, so won't you let me? i'm not ready to get your colors all out of my head.

they say november's gonna come, well i am ready for a fight.
take no credit for your sins, just keep it empty.
there's a little piece of you on the dashboard of my car… sometimes i think about walking into traffic, screaming out your name, and waiting for the dam to break.

cinderella, please forgive me! i'm running scared across your garden and i can't stop til i get your colors all out of my head.
cinderella, run and chase me… it's getting late, i know you're weary but i'm not ready to get your colors all out of my head.

and the radio was telling me it's gonna change, or maybe i should try to get some sleep.
i saw you listening to death cab on the internet, i guess it's nice to know you're also sad.

cinderella, don't forsake me—i know it's dumb, but we're still breathing… i know i've tried to get your colors all out of my head.
cinderella, please forget me—i'm giving up, i'm tired of asking, and maybe this way i'll get your colors all out of my head.

about

The Small Calamities

A whirlwind of punk rock angst, power pop hooks & Americana jangle, The Small Calamities blend a wry humor, Springsteenesque imagery, and naked earnestness to create what reviewers have called “imagery-laden anecdotes" & "poison-tipped confessionals". Smash Mouth follows them on twitter. ... more
