Ropes

When you're standing on the doorstep
and you know you have to do it
if you put one foot forward then you're out, you're out
are you stepping in or are you sailing out
for all the preparations there is no relief

Oh I wanna dance but my legs won't move
my eyes are looking for something to rest on
these colours of mine are fading soon
so cover your eyes up
cover your eyes

When I was young I was an Island
I was flying with the birds
All the clocks, they were ringing out
When you're looking out
at your choices
when time catches up with your heartbeat
when your eyelids are down

I wanna be free
I wanna be naked
I wanna be naive
I wanna be me with no last name

Oh I wanna dance but my legs won't move
my eyes are looking for something to rest on
these colours of mine are fading soon
so cover your eyes up
cover your eyes

Strangers & Lovers

Oh God what have I done
made fools of everyone
but if you want me back
I'll come home

We knew I had to leave
I walked down
my old street
right back at the beginning, restart

Oh I was gonna let you down
leaving every part of me
but someone's gonna love you more
when you and I are history

We will be strangers and they will be lovers
cause we all get lonesome and there will be others

I'm living inbetween
a hard place and a dream
my hopes are
that you'll find your own way

I was gonna let you down
leaving every part of me
but someone's gonna love you more
when you and I are history

We will be strangers and they will be lovers
cause we all get lonesome and there will be others

Oh we will be strangers, lovers
I tried I tried I tried


Mourning song

I was asleep when you came home
And I did not hear you leave
All of my bones
are aching because we
have unsaid words
and I miss your family

I saw the carvings on our stone
no flowers in the garden, no lights in our home
One day I was your angel
next minute you were gone
now all that I have left is my mourning song

I'm lost since you were gone
this is my only song now
oh boy where have you been
since you left me on my own

My big blue eyes saw you pulling
your chair from our table
all our young dreams
were dark and grey and gone
were the times when we thought that it would last

I saw the carvings on our stone
no flowers in the garden, no lights in our home
One day I was your angel
next minute you were gone
now all that I have left is my mourning song

I'm lost since you were gone
this is my only song now
oh boy where have you been
since you left me
since you left me on my own

Cry sometimes

A few lessons learned today
in high flourescent lights they gave you
a new soul and a new life
you're gonna find out something 'bout your friends tonight

All your brothers said that you couldn't stay
you thought if you just hid it would go away
I knew I'd have to walk you through the rain
When it's over
it's over

In these waters there are things
that you have fought with in your dreams
follow and I'll lead you to somewhere
where the wild let live, where no one stops and stares

All your brothers said that you couldn't stay
you thought if you just hid it would go away
I knew I'd have to walk you through the rain
When it's over
it's over

Yeah I'll hold your hands
and I'll try to understand
but I won't try to calm you down
cause babe I think its good to cry sometimes


Roy orbison

"He had a feeling about him where it seemed, like if you went up to him and tried to touch him, your hand would go through him" -B.S.

you took me from a a petrol station
you pointed out my destination
and you sang your song I sang along
I sang along

where are you now tonight
I heard you
got in a fight and did they hurt you
and do you miss them now
when you're alone
all alone

How I wept over your story
it's a long way to Woodlawn Park
But your songs, they live on in me
And I will always wanna be your pretty woman

Blue man dancing through the lines
wait for me on the other side
blue man dancing through the lines
oh the dark came in with the tide

Love found you and you
lost it time and again
no bright skies in your words
you saw the dark side of the moon
behind the glass
crying

How I wept over your story
it's a long way to Woodlawn Park
But your songs, they live on in me
And I will always want to be your pretty woman

Blue man dancing through the lines
wait for me on the other side
blue man dancing through the lines
oh the dark came in with the tide

HeartAttack

Oh I watched you from afar
I was trying to say something smart
you were drinking and turned your back
I was having a heart attack

Gathered myself and walked right up
I muttered my well rehearsed sentence
Gathered myself again and then shut up
Cause I realised

I'm standing right here but I'm invisible to you
I'm standing right here but I'm invisible to you

In a darker shade of red
Oh you didn't hear a word I said
You were joking, and turned your back
I was having a heart attack

Gathered myself
And walked right up
I muttered my well reheared sentence
Gathered myself again and then shut up
Cause I realised

That I'm standing right here but I'm invisible to you
I'm standing right here but I'm invisible to you

Standing I'm, Standing I'm, Standing right here


Murdeous

Under bluest of skies
we were telling our lies
hiding murders in fear of the living

We are murderous
we're killing our love
won't you comfort us
its hard to be human

when the oceans meet
that's when they will se
they're not footprints we leave,
they are craters

we are murderous
we're killing our love
won't you comfort us
its hard to be human

we'll have to hear
the truth when it comes
try and find away before it's all over
murderous, we're killing our love
won't you comfort us it's hard to be human

Trains

Sitting in a glass bowl
waiting for a train to come
take me out of this hole
Oh I could take any one
As long as I get real far
away from this station
as long as I get out of this
out of my situation

I have an aching head
and tired eyes
and my father said
that you can't disguise
unhappy hearts
left me at the crossroads
Won't you bring me cross-country
and can you save my soul
i need the deep of the ocean
and the top of mountains
I canot hide my emotions
so I'll run away

Trying my best to seem
happy on the face of it
God knows I've had practice
telling stories
But they caught me and they know now
that our conversations
were fake and I can see they're
running out of patience

A have an aching head
And tired eyes
and my mother said
you can't disguise
Unhappy hearts
Left me at the crossroads
Will you bring me cross- country
and can you save my soul
I need the deep of the ocean
and the top of mountains
I cannot hide my emotions
So I'll run away


Cold feet

Thinking of the day
when you met me first
You set my heart pumping
then made it burst
I was living in a dream
living in a dream of velvet

And then discussions came
where we should live
I told you where my heart is
Of course I'm scared
We're giving up a sense
giving up a sense of freedom

If you've got cold feet honey oh you need to know
that if you leave me now I will be gone for good
I know your last girl took you back but I won't
I won't forgive you no no I never could

now it's been a while since our first spark
you've met all my friends we're no longer in the dark
full speed forward
but I don't know where we're going

They say you just can't win
If you don't play the game
but if I throw my dice
will you do the same
show me all your cards
cause I feel like I'm about to lose it

If you've got cold feet honey oh you need to know
that if you leave me now I will be gone for good
I know your last girl took you back but I wont
I wont forgive you no no I never could

don't just say it
do you mean it
I will let go
if you need it

If you've got cold feet honey oh you need to know
that if you leave me now I will be gone for good
I know your last girl took you back but I wont
I wont forgive you no no I never could

I'm sick and tired of living this lie
oh tell me please if you've got cold feet

hots for you

You're a deep deep sea
It hit me when I drowned
and now I'm swimming around
waiting, searching, hoping, begging for a lifeline

Cause babe I've got the hots for you,
the hots for you
I've got the hots for you

And this summer, this love, this feeling
I wanna keep it till I die
So give me all you've got babe,
cause we won't know if we don't try

You've got my cards
oh please play them wisely
there's no assuming that we'll make it, we'll make it
oh but I wanna try

Cause babe I've got the hots for you,
the hots for you
I've got the hots for the hots for you

And this summer, this love, this feeling
I wanna keep it till I die
So give me all you've got babe,
cause we won't know if we don't try

So save me please don't leave me
I've been waiting for this summer
and baby I won't give up easy
when I know what I want

This summer, this love, this feeling
I wanna keep it till I die
So give me all you've got babe,
We won't know if we don't try


take me to that dark place

Put my black make-up on
my warpaint, my camouflage
I'm gonna dance through the dark
catch every spark, start a little fire
and make my own mark

I'll ruffle my feathers and swing for the hit
no time to waste now, this is it

Fire, burn and wind blow hard
I'm gonna ride on

Take me to that dark place and let me go
Leave me all alone with my thoughts and I'll be home
I have known it all along I need shadows to grow
Take me to that dark place and let me go

There's a storm in my eyes
Tornado, a hurricane
I'm just not sleeping at night
I made them run now I'm alone
hiding from the light

When I said that I needed silence
you gave me what I signed up for
I know you won't come calling again
but I'm locking my front door

Take me to that dark place and let me go
Leave me all alone with my thoughts and I'll be home
I have known it all along I need shadows to grow
So take me to that dark place and let me go
