Sorry man... I just saw this post. It was just a general statement regarding Peal Jam. I think there's maybe a few select people out there who've heard it, including Brain and the guys... as well as Brendan O'Brien... geek

Anyway.

pull it out, turn it up, whats your favorite song?
thats mine, ive been crying to it since i was young.
i know there's someone out there feeling just like i feel
i know they're waiting up, i know they're waiting to hear
and i've been holding my breath, ive been holding my breath
for too many years to count...

& we waited for sirens that never come
and we only write by the moon, every word handwritten
and to ease the loss of youth and how many years I've missed you
Pages plead forgiveness, every word handwritten.


let it out, let me in, take a hold of my hand
There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same
and did you wanna just drive without a word inbetween
I can understand, you need a minute to breathe and to sow up the seams
after all this defeat...

being in the dark, I cherish the moonlight...
I am in love with the way you're in love with the night
and it travels from heart to limb to pen...

Nice job! I did the same by taking screenshots of every single notebook page that came up in the video.

Two things: I think "waiting to hear" should be "waiting to heal"
and it's definitely "Here in the dark I cherish the moonlight"

I don't know if this belongs in another thread but Here's what I got from the lyrics written in the notebook that they showed in the video. If it's in ( ) that's because it was written but you don't hear it in the 90 second clips so it may or may not be in the song.


Too Much Blood

Are you scared this sounds familiar?
What if everybody knew?
The very trials and temptations that we put ourselves through.
Now I am no angel, but I got nothing to hide
Can you say the same thing for yourself tonight?

What can I keep for myself if I tell you my hell?
What would be left to take to my grave?
(And what’s left for you my lover to-
What’s left for only you to take?
If I put too much blood on the page?
If I told you the truth
If I put too much love on the page?
and as my eternal witness,
to the pride and the shame...
are you worried I’ll say too much
are you scared they’ll take me away?
Now I am no devil, but I got things on my mind
And they’re gonna come out, and come up time to time)



Here Comes My Man

How much time do you think that we have? If I wanted to, I could start over again
Let the good night decide, if she wants me to find, and never let you drop another tear in my eye
Singing oh sha la la oh sha la la listen hunny hear comes my man (2x)
All my life I never had a chance
Don’t you think I knew about all your pretty girlfriends
I waited for you, gave you time to decide
But you never saw it from anybody elses side
So I packed up my things and I ___ up my doubts
You know I think I will grow my hair back out
Never mind what you think
Never mind what you like
I’ll take it out to the streets for somebody else to admire
Singing oh sha la la oh sha la la, listen hunny hear comes my man (2x)
Here comes my man (2x)


(part of notebook lyrics – here comes my man)
If I wanted to I could stay
On a beach in the sand, with my heart still in tact, and
___ would be gone from my hands.
Somewhere I’d call you more and I’d write time to time
And I’d lessen your loads instead of making you cry.


I have no idea which songs these are from:

The place where you were in my heart is now closed
____ live with too many ghosts
now everybody lately is livin’ up in space
flyin’ through transmissions on invisible airwaves
with everything discovered just waiting to be known
what’s left for God to teach from his throne?
And who will forgive us when He’s gone?
__________ the weather, no, I never liked the rain


And is your smile gone from the face I know and loved?
?
If I was the one I could never forgive myself
And don’t you leave me...(2x)

I am sorry about the weather, how it rains inside your heart
Pull yourself together, I don’t know why they say that so much
There are no guarantees.
This is not an exit...this is no way to leave

This is not an exit, this is no way to leave
I know you can’t imagine, I know how bad it seems

Hmm, yeah I kinda heard that too it's just an odd phrase (not out of character for Brian, haha) so I didn't want to make any assumptions and I couldn't find the line in any of the notebook pages they showed.

@TGAforLIFE that "not listening" ship sailed a long time ago for me haha.

Slowly losing my mind! I don't have Facebook so I couldn't watch/listen to the video thing, but reading those lyrics bumped my excitement way up. I CAN'T WAIT! How about you? Time to start a support group yet? Razz

True on both accounts (strange phrase, nothing's too strange for Brian Razz).

I think this is right for Here Comes My Man -


Here Comes My Man

How much time do you think that we have? If I wanted to, I could start over again
Let the good night decide, who she wants me to find, and never let you drop another tear in my eye
Singing oh sha la la oh sha la la listen hunny hear comes my man (2x)
All my life I never had a chance
Don’t you think I knew about all your pretty girlfriends?
I waited for you, gave you time to decide
But you never saw it from anybody else's side
So I packed up my things and I phased out my doubts
You know I think I will go ahead right now
Never mind what you think
Never mind what you like
I’ll take it out to the streets for somebody else to admire
Singing oh sha la la oh sha la la, listen honey hear comes my man (2x)
Here comes my man (2x)

This is from National Anthem. Possibly the other stuff about weather as well (just offering a guess since it would seem to make sense).

@Rkirkpatrick25 I can say with confidence that the line is "you know I think I will grow my hair back out" its very clear when he sings it. And it makes sense.

As for the other changes, thanks for filling in the gaps, maybe you're right about them. I just left those gaps because I couldn't be 100% sure on them. Can't wait to find out for sure!

@JohnnyC thanks for that. I remember now, they were in a magazine article & it said they were from National Anthem. Good call!

I've gotta disagree with you! i don't think it makes sense, he's making her have a shaved head?

The interview portion starts again right as that line is being sung and it muffles that line...

Can't wait to hear the final version without any interview over it and we'll see!! Razz

I have to disagree a bit... Grow my hair back out doesn't have to mean that he's making her shave her head. She could just have short hair right now and is just gonna try to sexy it up a bit before she "takes it out to the streets for someone else to admire". The "grow" is quite clear before the interview kicks back in.

Also, I can't freaking wait for this album! I've never watched a making of video this much before, and I'm starting to learn the songs. I think i have a problem. Smile

Even though it gets quieter I think it isn't muffled at all, it's very clear (believe me I've listened to it more times than I care to admit). Maybe this explanation will help.

I am a girl. And as a girl I know it is not uncommon after the end of a relationship, to want to change your look, particularly your hair. Some will get a shorter cut if their hair is long, some will dye it, and others will grow it back out. Growing your hair out means you don't want it to be short any more, not that you're bald. I could have hair down to my chin and still say, I wanna grow my hair back out to like shoulder length. Additionally, the girl in the song isn't necessarily saying "you can't MAKE me have short hair anymore" she's saying "nevermind what you think. Nevermind what you like." Because she's not trying to please him anymore.

@snakester don't worry you're not the only one! I think I average watching it a minimum of 3 times per day. Keyword being minimum.

I like the "grow my hair out" explanation a lot, personally. My friend from high school does the opposite after getting out of a relationship...she gets the Emma Watson pixie haircut (not being chauvinistic, I just don't know how else to describe it haha).
