Inspiration I found in Karli's LJ

"My Konstantine"
by Something Corporate

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 it's over
When you're lying in a patch of four leaf clover
And you're restless
And I'm naked
You gotta get out you can't stand to see me shaking
And ya know
Could you let me go?
I didn't think so

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
And I'm sleeping in your living room
Well we don't have much room to live

I had these dreams in them I learned to play gituar
Maybe cross the country become a rock star
And there was hope in me that I could take you there
But dammit you're so young
Well I don't think I care
And if I hurt you then I'm sorry
Please don't think that this was easy

And then you'd bring me home
Cause we both know what it's like to be alone
And I'm dreaming in your living room
Well we don't have much room to live

And Konstantine's walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good standing in her underwear?
And I was thinking
Well I was thinking that we've been drinking and it doesn't get me anywhere.
But Konstantine came walking down the stairs
And all that I can do is touch her long, blonde...hair
And I was thinking
Well it hurts me thinking that these nights when we were drinking no they never got us anywhere

This is because I can spell confusion with a K and I like it
It's to dying in anothers arms why I had to try it
It's to Jimym Eat World and those nights in my car
Where 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 in my mistakes
And live with what I did to you all the hell I put you through
I always catch the clock it's 11:11 and now you want to 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 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 Konstantine
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 miss you?
Did you kow 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 no
And you kiss me in your living room
Well 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

did you really just discover that song? it is the best thing ever. i know it word for word...and sing it very loudly (probably off key) everytime it comes onto the ipod. now i even have my mom humming it. all of soco's songs are terrific. konstantine is just the longest. :-D

I did! In my little corner of the universe, Something Corporate hasn't existed until now. I listen to a lot of different music, but Soco is kind of obscure from where I stand. Sounds like it's worth looking into, though.
