Lessons In Love lyrics - Cartel

Oh, I would love to make you mine
But that’s not the sign you’re giving me
Go ahead, count me confused.

See I just never know the difference
In between you and what you want
Oh I am just so unenthused

Well, I can get over you right now
But I keep leaving something out
I wanted just another lesson in love
So, let me down, slow

Oh, I am never at a loss
But how could you say you love me?
When those words are overused

But you just go and leave me hanging
Much like you always used to do
Oh, I could use that point of view

Well, I can get over you right now
But I keep leaving something out
I wanted just another lesson in love
So let me down

I can get over you right now
But you just won’t sell me out
I wanted just another lesson in love
So let me down

With your best so it hurts
You keep tripping over your words
And you only get so far
What you say, it doesn’t matter
It’s a lie, so don’t bother
But you have to let me know

I can get over you right now
But I keep leaving something out
I wanted just another lesson in love
So let me down

I can get over you right now
But I keep leaving something out
I wanted just another lesson in love
So let me down slow

American Dreams lyrics - Cartel

Lately I’ve felt so pathetic that it burns
I can’t sweat it cause I know I’m gonna work this out
Baby just sit back and forget about the world
And how they always doubt that we can make it worth our while

I hear all the words you never say
And you can always walk away
Cause I can see it in your vacant smile

We got caught up in American
Holding onto hope there and back again
Taking back what’s lost
Just to find it all buried in American dreams

Oh dream dream dream
Maybe we can start a scene or just screw all day
We can run away, yes together, find a home
Better weather, oh
We can just lay here for a while

We got caught up in American
Holding onto hope there and back again
Taking back what’s lost
Just to find it all buried underneath this weight
I’m starting to believe this is what you hate
And nothing’s gonna work out the way it seems
But you’ll always be my American dream dream dream…

Maybe we can start a scene or just screw all day

We got caught up in American
Holding onto hope there and back again
Taking back what’s lost
Just to find it all buried in American dreams

We got caught up in American
And American dreams
Taking back what’s lost
Just to find it all buried in American dreams

Conduit lyrics - Cartel

This started back at the beginning
Where innocence was born
To hold it back seems only fitting
I am conscious of the storm
That's brewing inside
Yeah, it's coming in life
No where to run
No where to hide

Finally, at last
Rising from the depths
It's the only hope you have
And I hope you feel it now

Can you feel it yet?
Oh, ho, oh
This hearts still beating here
It's always on

Feel the pulse, feel the beat inside
Turn it up, turn up until its done
Feed the urge, feed the need
To insatiable degrees
A conduit
Vibrating circuit
Your energy, your chemistry
Is enough for both of us to see

Finally, at last
Rising from the depths
It's the only hope you have
And I hope you feel it now

Can you feel it yet?
Oh, ho, oh
This hearts still beating here
It's always on
Don't call it destiny
That's so defeating
This electricity
Flows through us all

It reverberates within us all

Can you feel it yet?
Oh, ho, oh
This hearts still beating here
It's always on
Don't call it destiny
That's so defeating
This electricity
Flows through us all

In Stereo lyrics - Cartel

I wrote a song so sing along
(You gotta push play to start)
And when it ends, play it again
(Make sure you know it by heart)
Call and repeat, don't miss a beat
(I know it sounds absurd)
It's nothing new, nothing to do
(That you haven't)

All the words, I've been saying
All the songs, I've been playing
So say to me "Just keep dancing."
All they want is energy

Hey you are a star
You're gonna make it
Hey you will go far
You'll get your break, kid
They know who you are
No matter where you go
Watch you'll melt the charts
And that's your stereo

Don't get me wrong, it's just a song
(However do I see)
When all your best is to the test
(Just keep living the dream)
This is for real, a record deal
(I'm trading money for art)
I had a plan to start a band
(But that was falling)

A part of me can't let go and
I don't see anything but
Despairity making me crazy
It's now or never, more than ever

Hey you are a star
You're gonna make it
Hey you will go far
You'll get your break, kid
They know who you are
No matter where you go
Watch you'll melt the charts
And that's your stereo

I believe
In what I can see
Just one more time
Just one more song
To keep it alive

Hey you are a star
You're gonna make it
Hey you will go far
You'll get your break, kid
They know who you are
No matter where you go
Watch you'll melt the charts
And that's your stereo

Hey you are a star
You're gonna make it
Hey you will go far
You'll get your break, kid
They know who you are
No matter where you go
Watch you'll melt the charts
And that's your stereo

You'll get your break kid
Catch me in stereo

Something To Believe lyrics - cartel

She says I've seen it all
But nothing spoken
Pre-tense begins to fall
And words are broken

I know it's just better this way
I'll do my best but
I don't want to end up the same
As all the rest

We just wanna believe in something
To make them feel at home
We wanna believe in something
So they feel less alone
Will you be my answer now to everything?
Be my answer now to everything

She says we had it all
But now it's missing
Progress slowed to a crawl
But now we're listening

Some say it's just better this way
Just do your best but
I don't want to end up the same
Cause they

We just wanna believe in something
To make them feel at home
We wanna believe in something
So they feel less alone
Will you be my answer now to everything?
So I feel less alone

We'll bring them down
We'll bring these walls to the ground
Without a sound, we'll bring them down

Believe in something
So they feel less alone

We just wanna believe in something
To make them feel at home
We wanna believe in something
So they feel less alone
Will you be my answer now to everything?
So I feel less alone

So I feel less alone

Let's Go lyrics - cartel

Let me reintroduce myself
As a man with a cause
I’ve had a lot of time to think
And look at who we are
And I’ve got nothing left to say
But we’ve got to carry on
And I’ve got so much left to do
But I’ll start with this song

Why do they lie?
Why can’t you see?
Get up everybody
Stand up with me

Let’s Go! Everybody!
Let’s Go! Tell ‘em we’re coming
Let’s Go! Everybody!
Let’s Go! Stand up with me!
Let’s Go!
Take the world with me

You’ve got something on your mind
But you get in your way
Don’t tell us tomorrow
You better buy change today
All we have is who we are
And all we know is pretending
You gotta think of something real
Save a life worth spending

Why do they lie?
Why can’t you see?
Get up everybody
Stand up with me

Let’s Go! Everybody!
Let’s Go! Tell ‘em we’re coming
Let’s Go! Everybody!
Let’s Go! Stand up with me!
Let’s Go!
Take the world with me

So if you’ve got a torch to carry
Hold it high!
Take the world with me
Let it burn, let it burn, let it light up the sky!

Stand up! Yeah, let’s go
Stand up! You’ve gotta let them know
Stand up! You’ve gotta make them see
Get up people! Stand up with me!

Let’s Go! Everybody!
Let’s Go! Tell ‘em we’re coming!
Let’s Go! Everybody!
Let’s Go! So I’ll sing…
Let’s Go! Everybody!
Let’s Go! Tell ‘em we’re coming!
Let’s Go! Everybody!
C’mon everybody, stand up with me!
So let’s go! Take the world with me!
Let’s go! Let’s go!

The Perfect Mistake lyrics - Cartel

[Verse 1:]
Wake me up, I’ve been dreaming
It feels just like any other day-
I sit you down, here goes nothing.
And you’re not gonna like what I say
Get out, oh just get out.

[Chorus:]
“Get Up, Get Out”
That’s what she said, “You drive me crazy.”
“I can’t believe that’s what you did.”
“And don’t call me baby.”
And I know I’m wrong, I knew all along that you’d find out,
I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now.

[Verse 2:]
Wake me up, I’ve been dreaming,
Because I haven’t heard from you in days.
Hazy now, this fog just follows me around,
And it’s only you that burns it away.
So get out, oh just get out.

[Chorus:]
“Get Up, Get Out”
That’s what she said, “You drive me crazy.”
“I can’t believe that’s what you did.”
“And don’t call me baby.”
And I know I’m wrong, I knew all along that you’d find out,
I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now.

[Bridge:]
I see your face, every time I close my eyes,
Its getting worse you say, it comes as no surprise.

Why am I hell bent on losing, when I can’t get you out of my head?

[Chorus:]
“Get Up, Get Out”
That’s what she said, “You drive me crazy.”
“I can’t believe that’s what you did.”
“And don’t call me baby.”
And I know I’m wrong, I knew all along that you’d find out,
I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now.

Oh I’m the perfect mistake, I’m hoping you’ll make right now-
Oh you’ll make right now.

Faster Ride lyrics - cartel

A green light, unkind
No where to go on a one track mind
It's a break down at the wrong time
I'm catching up but I'm still behind

We did it right, we did it right for some time
But I looked up and you were gone
We did it right, we did it right for some time
I couldn't give you what you want

Cause you just want to take a faster ride
Lower lows, higher highs
Get it, get it, go until you get it right
And I hope you find it
Cause you just want to take a faster ride
Lower lows, higher highs
But you just got to kiss me one more time
So just kiss me goodbye

A red light, wrong way
I'm just a game that you like to play
It's a hot start to your cold ways
You got bored then you walked away

You did it right, you did it right for some time
But I looked up and you were gone
You did it right, you did it right for some time
I couldn't give you what you want

Cause you just want to take a faster ride
Lower lows, higher highs
Get it, get it, go until you get it right
And I hope you find it
Cause you just want to take a faster ride
Lower lows, higher highs
But you just got to kiss me one more time
So just kiss me goodbye

So now you're moving on (you're moving on)
With no regrets (with no regrets)
But I'm still hanging on (still hanging on)
To every word you said (to every word you said)

But you just want to take a faster ride
Lower lows, higher highs
Get it, get it, go until you get it right
But you'll never find it, no

Cause you just want to take a faster ride
Lower lows, higher highs
Get it, get it, go until you get it right
And I hope you find it
Cause you just want to take a faster ride
Lower lows, higher highs
But you just got to kiss me one more time
Just kiss me goodbye

So just kiss me goodbye

Deep South lyrics - Cartel

I was born in the south
Given to a town raised on hand to mouth
Born on the same day as the sun
Holding in the Earth's seed one by one

I died in the cold, waiting to rot
Frozen like stone, all is for naught
All that I am is churning inside
All that I am is screaming...

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

I feel it in my skin
Coming undone again and again
Torn at the seam my heart had sown
Holding back the tears shed on my own

If dying is bold, that courage I've got
I could grow old, but I forgot
All that I am is churning inside
The voice in my head is screaming...

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

I was born in the south
Given to a town raised on hand to mouth
Born on the same day as the sun
Counting every heart beat one by one

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

Only You lyrics - cartel

I hear you calling out my name
All of the elements will fade
Never before has love looked safe
Never again will it look the same
But then we fall back now to this empty house
There the wars will rage
And if you leave me now in this empty house
Baby it's okay
Oh and its only you yeah its only you
Its only you and me
Oh and its only you yeah its only you
It's only you and me yeah
And I feel you crawling out my veins
Leaving the walls inside with flames
Burning the emptiness I've saved
Until lonely you remain
But then my lungs collapse and you pull me out
Forever I've been changed
Honey you can take me now til it all runs out
Baby it's okay
Oh but theres only you yeah its only you
It's only you i see
Girl if its only you yeah its only you
Its only you and me yeah
Can you feel it now
I've weighed it all out
Here and now my world turns inside out
And I swear I
I hear you calling
I hear you calling out my name
Only you yeah its only you
It's only you I see
Girl if its only you yeah its only you
It's only you and me yeah
It's only you yeah its only you
It's only you and me

It Still Remains lyrics - Cartel

It still remains
And I can't pretend it's gone
Count on me, to remember who you are
It still remains
And what if you were wrong?
I shouldn't let, I shouldn't let you get too far

What do I, I have to lose?
And what do I, I have to do?

Is there any other way
To stop thinking 'bout
Any of the days
We had it figured out?
I don't want to lose you
After all we've been through
Is there nothing I can say
To turn you around?
Maybe that's the way
To stop thinking 'bout all those yesterdays
That still remain

It's killing me
Wondering where you are
You don't call
But your voice won't go away
It still remains
I'm broken but I'm bent
On finding you, and hoping that you'll stay

What do I, I have to lose?
And what do I, I have to do?

Is there any other way
To stop thinking 'bout
Any of the days
We had it figured out?
I don't want to lose you
After all we've been through
Is there nothing I can say
To turn you around?
Maybe that's the way
To stop thinking 'bout all those yesterdays
That still remain?

Okay it doesn't matter
Cause I'm still yours
Give it time to find a pattern
We will find a cure in this design

Is there any other way
To stop thinking 'bout
Any of the days
We had it figured out?
I don't want to lose you now...

Is there any other way
To stop thinking 'bout
Any of the days
We had it figured out?
I don't want to lose you
After all we've been through
Is there nothing I can say
To turn you around?
Maybe that's the way
To stop thinking 'bout all those yesterdays
That still remain
That still remain

27 Steps lyrics - cartel

And I can't unwind with you hanging 'round
And I feel just like a vine
Oh if you have to leave me here
Then I invite it
Cause I've been twisted in your words
I'm better off left alone

Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
27 steps to you're front door
Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
I can't stand your face anymore
Should've figured out then what you lose
But it's too late to fix what's broken
Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
27 steps and I can't...

...believe I was so naive
And my heart is racing
I can barely breathe
Oh if you have to take it here
Then I've decided
That I've been stepping in your words
I should've seen it all along

Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
27 steps to you're front door
Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
I can't stand your face anymore
Should've figured out then what you lose
But it's too late to fix what's broken
Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
27 steps and I'm gone

Are you with me?
Are you with me?
27 steps to you're front door
Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
I can't stand your face anymore
Should've figured out then what you lose
But it's too late to fix what's broken
Hey are you with me?
Hey are you with me?
27 steps...
Are you with me?
Are you with me?
27 steps to you're front door
Are you with me?
Are you with me?
27 steps and I'm gone

See Me Now lyrics - Cartel

And it's the same foregone conclusion
All the things hurt when I was young
It's the sample of delusion
Spit from everybody's tongue

And I don't know how to be another
Don't know how to be "the one"
Oh I have only just discovered who I am and where I'm coming from

If you could see me now
There'd be no purpose left to try and figure out
If you could see me now
You would be the last one in or out

And we can talk about solutions
Till we're red (or blue) in the face
And we can stare at our illusions
And just smile till the mirror breaks

And I don't know how to be another
Don't know how to be "the one"
Oh I have only just discovered who I am and what I have become

If you could see me now
There'd be no purpose left to try and figure out
If you could see me now
You would be the last one in or out

There's no accounting taste when you uncover what I see
And don't you call it a waste when it's only your mistake

If you could see me now
There'd be no purpose left to try and figure out
If you could see me now
You would be the last one in or out

If you could see me now
There'd be no purpose left to try and figure out
If you could see me now
You would be the last one in or out

If you could see me now
There'd be no purpose left to try and figure out
If you could see me now
You would be the last one in or out

Typical lyrics - cartel

I guess I gotta crawl before I can walk
I guess I gotta grow before we can talk
And I have the upper hand
I'm good at letting go but I'm getting better
You're never gonna know but you'll get a letter
I hope you understand

I never wanted it to go this far
Never thought it would be so hard
I never thought i would lose myself
But now I'm left with nothing else

Cause you're so typical
You're so damn typical
You're so typical
You're so damn typical

I guess you gotta lose before you can listen
I guess you gotta choose to see what you're missing
I am the better man
I'm good at letting go but I'm getting better
You're never gonna know but you'll get a letter
I hope you understand

I never wanted it to go this far
Never thought it would be so hard
I never thought i would lose myself
But now i'm left with nothing else

Cause you're so typical
You're so damn typical
You're so typical
You're so damn typical
You're predictable, cynical
I see it in your eyes
You're so typical
You're so damn typical

And I see what this does to you
I'm holding back like I've got something left to prove
You're so cliche
I can see it in your face
See it in myself
The rest is up to you

Cause you're so typical
You're so damn typical

Cause you're so typical
You're so damn typical
You're so typical
You're so damn typical
You're predictable, cynical
I see it in your eyes
You're so typical
You're so damn typical
You're so typical
You're so damn typical

Conventional Friend lyrics - Cartel

I was blind till I opened up my eyes to see
And all this time I never noticed
All you ever had was hidden motives
You're just a curse
Another lie, another waste of my time

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away

I'm obliged to forget you after all is said (and done)
And all this time I tried to fix you
Was just another way to avoid the issue
You're just a ruse
Another guise, another waste of my time

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away

And no, no I won't get over this (it's a little too late)
I'm going insane (you gotta get, no, no I gotta get away)
Oh this is gonna fuck with my head
And I'll be looking for it in the end

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away

Until you go away, go away then
You only see me inside of this skin
Conventional friend, you've taken the best
You've taken the best and thrown it away

Retrograde lyrics - Cartel

I'm out of faith
I'm in retrograde
A dizzy pattern in a cheap parade
And I'm losing touch but I'm I'm not ashamed
Of what I say or how nice I play
I'm a trojan horse made of paper mache,
What has been ever comes 'round again

And I'm under arrest
(I'm under a arrest)
I'm shutting down
I'm unimpressed
(I'm not impressed)
But I've done my best
An undecided heart makes such a mess

I'm out of place
I'm a different state
A little scattered by a bitter fate
And I'm losing touch but I'm, I'm not afraid
I'll be okay just in a different way
I have no remorse I have no more shame
Oh nothing ever ends before it begins

And I'm under arrest
(I'm under arrest)
I'm shutting down
I'm unimpressed
(I'm not impressed)
But I've done my best
An undecided heart makes such a mess

Well I'll be going 'round and 'round this cycle won't slow down
I'm looking for the centre of this life I've found
What has been ever comes 'round again

And I'm under arrest
(I'm under arrest)
I'm shutting down
I'm unimpressed
(I'm not impressed)
But I've done my best
An undecided heart makes such a mess

And I'm under arrest
(I'm under arrest)
I'm shutting down
I'm unimpressed
(I'm not impressed)
I've done my best
(I've done my best)
An undecided heart makes such a mess

The Best lyrics - Cartel


on a perfect day
somewhat like today
we will find each other there
we will find each other there
and somewhat like the month we first met
we can't forget the way i loved you
but i can't pretend how far we've gone
and we can not mend what damage has been done
no, we can not mend what damage is done now
but then we shall come home and
become the best ones we could have been
oh the best we could have been
oh the best we could have been, now
