Alpha is an English electronica group, comprising founding member Corin Dingley, vocalist and lyricist Wendy Stubbs and Hannah Collins; other founding member, Andy Jenks, left the group before the release of their 2007 LP "The Sky Is Mine". Originally working under the name "Ariel", the duo of Dingley and Jenks came together in 1995 after both had worked on various projects in the Bristol area, home of trip-hop groups Massive Attack and Portishead. Like Massive Attack, Alpha recruited singers to add vocals to their downtempo, beat-driven compositions of the late 1990s, which led to them being included in the category of "Post Trip-Hop". "ComeFromHeaven", their debut LP was the first release on Massive Attack's Melankolic label in 1997. They are currently on Don't Touch Recordings, a label they founded. A collaboration with Reggae vocalist Horace Andy, entitled Two-Phazed People, was released in August 2009. Corin Dingley, one of the founder members of Alpha, has finished the 15th release for Alpha; it features vocals from Kate Stables, This Is The Kit, Jesse D Vernon, Morning Star, Jamie Gingell, Secret Shine, Hannah Collins, Wendy Stubbs, and Joe Cassidy.

Come From Heaven

*** Thanx To Denis who corrected my own interpretation ***

Rain

Wendy Stubbs :

I stare, I tear, I creep, sleep
I taste your breath, your lips sweet
I will be there to feel.

Tripping, falling, sailing by
Beyond the wind in the sky
I will be there to free your mind.

It's you I see in slumber
It's you I see in sleep
It's you I see in my dreams
It's you, it's you, it's me.
It's you.

Rolling on the ground with
Sailing on the sea
Tripping in the grass
Oh, to do with you
Oh well, oh well, nevermind
I wouldn't have care.

Dazing, glazing, amazing
Frozen moments
Crazy thing

Another moment to,
Know that you never
Get out of my way
I'm coming through

Wheels splayed out looking for,
Someting new,
I'm crazy guy with the missing hue.

Sometime later

Martin Barnard :

Touch my hand
It's only me, listen
I'm here.

Come to stand
In sultry fields
With you.

And now
Old dummy day
I know
Is over this way.

I'm laughing
Saw you gonna kiss me
You see
Yeah as I said.

One day she won't
A lonely bird
Alone.

Judgement day
Saw the world it's gone
Unheard.

Sold the sea
A lot how it feels to me.

I hate the word it's sad to see
I take your weight
And your heart fades away
Today a renegade
To lay in woods
By the pheasants.

I mean it
You don't
Force on my head
Kill our nightmare.

A lonely bird, a lonely bird
A lonely bird, a lonely bird
A lonely bird, alone.

Colour me
Cover me in the colour that reminds you
Solemnly.

Could make the same mistake
And you would never know
That I am, that I am
Alone, now.

Something, something
Tells me that you
Have something
On, all of us now
You're heaven
Taking over me now
Colour me hate
Raw little nerve
Colour me and pull us
Only home
Me home.

Hold the sun down
Hold the sun down
Hold the moon down
Leave me to rest
Want the world man
Too the words out
Only relief is
To slip through the nets
Hold a minute
And stop a minute
And go, oh oh
Hold a minute
You said to me
Said to me and
Breath, breath, breath, breath, breath ...
You said it to me
Sometime later.


*** Thanx To Denis and Koen and Goreckigirl who corrected my own interpretation ***

Delaney

Sample : Michel Legrand from "Delaney takes a break"

I've never pretending have the truth
Anyhow I should listened to you
I'm very sorry
Is it right now.

Helen white :


Be a friend
Don't learn at my expense
So concerned
Despite your empty words
I care, be there
But  leave me breathing
Don't despair
I know why
I'm so alive

Martin Barnard :

Heads, to say you have it
Tails to say you don't
Lost for words and I think
Time to take you home
Caught you up a ladder
Trying to end it all
Is it any wonder
I believe them all ?

Martin Barnard & Helen white :

You don't see it do you ?
You shouldn't play God
You got something on your mind
Just knock it off
You smile a little more
You stop saying no
You don't seem to be the trying type after all

Martin Barnard :

I break your fall and say
You could have been nothing

Helen white :


Be a friend
Don't learn at my expense
I care, be there but
Leave me breathing
Don't despair
I know why
I'm so alive
To leave me breathing
Don't despair
I know why I' m so alive

Martin Barnard & Helen white :

You don't see it do you ?
You shouldn't play God
You got something on your mind
Just knock it off
You smile a little more
You stop saying no
You don't seem to be the trying type after all

Martin Barnard :

Sight of nothing
Sight of the world
Sight of the
Sight

Helen white :

Be like everyone else
Be like everyone else
Be like everyone else

Martin Barnard :

Do you like, do you like me, let's go away

Helen white :

Be like everyone else ...

Martin Barnard :

Any day now we could leave town,
Down, take a car in London Town, take a London

Slim

Helen White :

Step outside
And feel the warmth
Much stronger than inside

Crazy path
That lead you here
Creates a place to hide.

And I'm scared to be so heartless
I'm hoping that you'll learn
There's only one and that is you

And I'm scared to be so heartless
I'm hoping that you'll learn
There's only one and that is you

Frightened eyes take in the view
Forgetting how it feels
Look around, believe yourself
The world outside is real

And I'm scared to be so heartless
I'm hoping that you'll learn
There's only one and that is you

And I'm scared to be so heartless
I'm hoping that you'll learn
There's only one and that is you

Gave myself to you
No one can deny
I'm still waiting 'til you be
So content to feel
Can't despise myself
I'm still waiting 'til
Leave me break my heart
Can't control the pain
I'm still waiting 'til.

Back

(Opening poem by Sylvia Plath)

But toward the region where
Our thick atmosphere diminishes
And God knows what is there
A point of exclamation marks that sky
In ringing orange
Like a stellar carrot
Its round period displaced in greens
Suspends beside it a first point
The starting point of evil
Against the new moon's curve

Martin Barnard :

So that I see
And know I gave reason
The time to believe
It's all in my head
The sun that I see
Is just an illusion
And I live close to the edge

This time taking time
This sun, sun is high
Sang a tune, sang a tune, sang a tune
Everybody talks to you
Everybody talks to you
Turning like it ought to
Turning like a wise will
Saying like it hasn't
Soul see, soul set
Soul see, soul set

Calling her name
Called in nirvana
Time and again
Alone that I work
Take this and more
And time in together
And why are you close to the edge

They say just to add
The wilder world is a trap
I see just to add you to that
For he was the sun
The comet rushing along
And she, new to that
Turned her back

Does everybody talk to you
Everybody talks to you
Turning like it ought to
Taking it away
( Sample )
Soul see, soul set
Soul see, soul set
Soul see, soul set
Soul see, soul set
( Sample )

Nyquil

( Sample )

Wendy Stubbs :

I defy
You to find a bluer sky
Than a summer in love
With mirth

Happy as Larry
A smile I would carry
One wondrous look
Of surprise

When I danced with you
You even made the sun change hue
Such a pity
We were pretty

When I danced with you
I always felt
As if you knew,
You were scared
Never dared

Hell to play
We showed them anyway
We shall tell you it was time to grow
'Till it was time

( Sample )

To grow

Nobody, ever find the truth in me
Or a paradise moon
In flight

Exotic, uneven
Mid-sentence reeling
A glorious passion
That night

When I danced with you,
You even made the sun change hue
Such a pity

( Sample )

With

Helen White :

Feel me
I'm frightened
We both know
Someone waiting
Feeling my way
Don't be, enjoy
While we can't be

Feel me
I'm frightened
We both know
Don't be, enjoy
While we can't be

Firefly

Martin Barnard :

Who begins a star ?
Who will roll far ?
Took the way I know
Move along now

So sad I lost my memory
The shape of things to come
Circus heart stops inside me
There's just no time.

Halcyon days
Pine the roadways
Got to let you know
And I walk the way the wind blows
Softly in clouds of envy
I see those eyes
Fireflies in time

Don't ask for anything more
There seem no room in my life
Don't ask for anything more
Don't know why

Talk to me
Drag my memory
Across a seashore of sin
Yes I care
I'm trying to say it
I'm getting tired, so look
I'll never
I'll never
Whenever

Hold your hand, hold the light
Indian took another butterfly
Anything cloud nor dirt
Funny bird
Burning words
Travelling
Dreams for me
In time.

Heads down
Words from an indian
Words tinny in tone
Peace signs
Hitching a ride with
Destiny on tow

Anything cloud nor dirt
Funny bird
Burning words
Travelling
Dreams for me
In time.

Heads down
Words from an indian
Words tinny in tone
Peace signs
Hitching a ride with
Destiny on tow

Somewhere not here

Wendy Stubbs :

I remember when you came
I can just recall that day
Unexpected, undetected
If I'd have known I still would have done it.

So little time, so long to wait
A paradise, within your eyes
All the things I could tell you
All the things I could show you.

You're my waking thought
You're the smile on my lips
I dream I see your face
I see and dream of you.

You were safe and warm
I was in your hands
We were moved in time
To another space.

Somewhere, not here
Somewhere, not here
So, little time
So, little time.

You were safe and warm
I was in your hands
We were moved in time
To another space.

A thousand miles away
I'd like to fly to you.

I immerse myself
I dream, I see your face
I see, I dream of you
If you were here we'd watch
If you were here we'd see.

You're my waking thought
You're the smile on my lips.

You were safe and warm
I was in your hands
We were moved in time
To another space.

Somewhere, not here
I know you are somewhere, not here
You're my waking thought
You're the smile on my lips
Are you thinking of me
Do I invade your sleep
A paradise, a paradise
Within your eyes.

I remember when you came
I can just recall that day
Somewhere not here
Somewhere not here
Somewhere.

The Impossible Thrill

Still

Could you ever
And ever
Could you
Perceive me
Completely
As I should be

You don't even know me
You don't even care

Why thought that I
Gave me name
Still I lie
Concealing
My mood

You don't even know me
You don't even care

Could you ever
Make her way
Make her stay
With you

Oh can you
Butterfly on my head

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian for this one ***

Eon

Would you mind taking over
I need time
Time's against me
At the moment
And the world is too
But give me
A space
To breathe

It's there for me

Used to feel that I was guided
Gentle hands to spell me on
Open arms
With open eyes
And dreams

Should I shout it down
Or runaway
Stay and fight
Save the day
Tweedle dum or tweedle dee

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian & Diana for this one ***

Dim

You find out words are the same when you shout
I'm forced out
I'm someone childlike
My first time
Wonder when you'd come
So the mermaid's run 
For now the magic's gone

Falling under the water where i don't belong

Beaneth the mud and mead
There lurks like a dark seed
A memory long gone
A world so chained up
A world so chained up

Could look so down
Live like London
Walls are on your life
Hell's coves don't come, come...
And over is over is over is over is o...
Someone, yeah
Daylight's all, daylight's all

Just tell me if you've ever had
To find out
Words are the same when you shout
A small town
For the rest of your life
My first time
Wonder when you'd come
So the mermaid's run 
For now the magic's gone
So the mermaid's run 
And now the magic's gone

Oh heaven looks so sad
But give us all the time we need
I see no reason to believe
There ain't no sunflower that you won't see
There's only love sounds
Only love beats on
Alone and alone and alone
So we'll hold this
Alone and alone and alone
So we'll hold this
Alone and alone and alone

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian & Amanda for this one ***

South

This was the one and only
So pure, so pure
You named the stars and told me 
They're all yours, they're all yours

And all at once I saw the sign
The very extreme of lies
And my pain
Smothering
My pain 
Cover it

I can't feel your pain but
I can taste the rain I've laid

I lost my sense of wonder
There's no cure, there's no cure
I'm losing my head
Smothering
My pain 
Cover it

I can't feel no pain
But i can taste the way
It touched my heart bleed

And all at once I saw the sign
The very extreme of lies
It taught me how to cry

Without my strength
I'll handle this
Over and over and I'll
Handle this
Over and over and I
Found way to blame you
Found how to blame you
I can recognize

I've lost so much
I gave so much
I've loved so much

And that's why
You took so much
And you gave so much
It's all yours

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian & Amanda for this one ***

Almost there

It's really good
That we struggle
Really struggle
That something

Think about it
Take your time
Doesn't matter
Not a crime

Almost there

There I was
Flesh and bone
Only human

Lost from home
Lost from home

Happy ending
Right this way
Take the journey
Round again

Steal another
Glance a kid
Almost there
Round again

Think about it
Take your time
Doesn't matter
Not a crime

Couldn't happen
Not this possible
Take your time

Who could be
Take the journey
Find a way
In a hurry

Who's the fool
Could lose it all
Took a chance
Broke the pact
Lost my way
Then did again
Who could be
Someone like me
Caught my breath
Then died the dead
Who could be
Someone like me

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian & Amanda for this one ***

Wise

Say it as I dance
Say will you dance
Falling wonderful love
She says that's enough
The plane is a bird
The final wish absurd
To fly on the wings I feel
Can make her so real
Then I'll manage it
One thing of us is done
Burn little fire above it
Underneath it all
There's a modern world
That's all (old?)
Unstoppable

The face talks down to the river
The special world of you
The mind all returns to the river
The same thing said to you

This gun is offed
His thought has gone
Good morning touch her
How time's flow
And all signs of madness
Struck by sadness
Burn in a fire above my
Underneath it all
She complicates the river in us
Says to me
It's time for all things
Just fly


(Is a mirror)

I've end in you
I've envied you
Everywhere I go
Doesn't matter all
Pray your sun sets
And your sun's rays
Say not a look
And bade, wait
The sun, our world
Say was it all
Say was it all
Guess I've needed you, you

*** Thanx a lot to Adrian & Amanda for this one ***

Wishes

It's raining
My mood is grey
I would exchange
Some sunny days

I lost the smile
Lost the knack
Lost my mind

Read my book
Sin paid again
Lost my concentration then

Lost the plot
Lost the track
Lost my mind

Won't come back
Won't be back

It's raining
My mood is grey
I would exchange
Some sunny days

*** Thanx a lot to Amanda for this one ***

Clear sky

So some say somehow
Who was high stays down
I don't think you understand me
I don't see your fault lies
I just wanna talk for now

And though the way I struggle
It grab and take hold of me
Always the one
And always enough to be
The ultrasound strike in the sea
Let me open
That I'll crash sometime
I'm lucky for now

Stir me round
He's spawned a war
So run from him
It's something in his blood
It's all because of a rushing heart
Of course, he's made a plan
His sailor wants clear sky

Droop just now
Has the face of calm
And you're on top of the world
The planet didn't know
That Earth will forever be forgot

Until you dared know
Someone will win to better things
No one told me
I'm glad you're told
I don't strike alot
And say only
Your moment here
Is slowing up

*** Thanx a lot to Amanda for this one ***

Al sation

Anytime now
You will see me
I'm trembling when you smile
And pick me up right off the floor
I hope so

How could you know?
Let me see your eyes
It's been awhile
Should I
Act surprised

How could I come
'Till I'm at your house
Too honest for this

Will you dare light me more than
Sunlight ever could

Anytime now
Pick me up right off the floor
I hope so
I hope so

*** Thanx a lot to Amanda for this one ***

Fort

Here's only so much more
The day is full
To reach
Understanding
And all at once I knew
I fan the truth over to you

Excused
Your flame
Sold us
I look away (?)
There's only so much more
There's only so much more

Hey lonely
Still looking for perfection
Bleed and hold it
Miss the moment

When there's only so much more
Discover it all
All wonders be like you do

Simply comply
With the restlessness I hurt
Takes hold
A touch, a sigh with

Hey, lonely
Still looking for perfection
Bleed and hold it
Miss the moment

There's only so much more
There's only so much more
You'll find in me
Gave everything

Maybe you will
But maybe you won't
The impossible thrill
That lives only once
I rest my case
My weary face
Grey is sad (?)

*** Thanx a lot to Amanda for this one ***

Stargazing

Once round town

It isn't easy having fun
When you're away so long
It's the same face every night
Under the bathroom light
Time to get dressed
And fast
Checking for keys and cash
Close the door
Head for the city
Letting the taxi cab
Find the way
Find your way

And when the evening's underway
Everyone feels ok
Watch my timing with champagne
And blissfully feel no pain
i catch a silhouette
I feel a smile
Like you found the way
Found your way

And time's come into play
You found your way
And time's come into play
Hurry up baby
Hurry up come to me
It's like you found your way
Time's come into play
I thought you found your way
Hurry up baby
Found your way

Lipstick from the asylum

When i can't look
The other way
There's only you
To wonder

And on hard times
A doorway leans on days
As though im needing you
And some have helped me become older
I suggest you're using me
After moving on

I'm really sorry lost time won't wait
You always took so long
I'm leaving now

All your praising me
Turned tides all over mine
Are you erasing me
Lipstick from the asylum goes on
Something that has stolen us
Always some
Something that has stolen us
Always some

I put it on you and me and now
I hate it all you and me

I put it on you and me and now
I hate it all you and me

I put it on you and me and now
I hate it all you and me

I put it on you and me and now
I hate it all you and me


A perfect end

- Sample -

I can't believe you're here
Did you know you found me alone
If i could count the years
I end and you begin

I share your dreams
It's like i see for two people
Did i give up on mine
You could do much better

I can't believe we're here
Or I'll fall much further than this
The terror lies in us
But tells the truth in me

He's overrated
And though it appears to be
I make my home in thee

It's out of my hands
It's out of my hands
Can I break the mood
If there's nothing left to break
But what of night and day
We never need more
It's such a perfect end
A constant when I dissolve
There's nothing left to hold
I can't believe you're here
I came home with nothing left to hold

*** Thanx a lot to Janna for this one ***

Elvis

Look into the darkness
I'm dancing in the shadows with you
There's a world waiting out there for us to see
...
And beneath the starlit blanket
Dreams are made of solid gold
I just wanna be the one to hold you there
When you're cold

With so many pictures on the walls
Of five billion minds
We just need to take them out sometime
Y'know and start living the good times
...
Decent dreams and pictures make you airborne
When you close your eyes

That's why I wanna fly with you tonight
No one else, no one else can make the flight like you
So I wanna fly with you tonight
And no one there, oh lord oh lord

I'm obviously indebted to you
By the way that you make me feel
Those ice cold warm heart
Is always gonna be able to turn a dream to real
I say
I'm touching all horizons with you
I got my sights on solid gold
I feel superhuman baby
Y'know like the way the marvel make man feel in their shows
Now check out what my mind say
Check out what my words say
Check out all my actions
I just want your satisfaction

You know cause I wanna fly with you tonight
Oh no one else, no one else can make the flight like you
So I wanna fly, oh, with you tonight
And make dreams, make a dream a real life
I can oh

You got to take my hand lady
Oh yeah
Then you'll understand what I'm saying
And you know we gonna find the ideal destination
I say I say
I, I wanna fly with you tonight

*** Thanx a lot to Remi who corrected this one ***

Saturn in rain

Anyone now
Under the mellow tree
Saturn in rain
Sick of a woman me
Anyone now
All the one taste
Out in the desert
Out in the sea for me

And now
I mean it
Over there the grains get in it
And who are you to think the ride
It would be easy, oh?

Anyone

Used to say
Understanding you
To set the day
I'll kill time for two
But walking to the moon ain't cool when it's you
I can tell we were sadder happy every hour

Listen in vain
You're so lost why
Move along please
I've got my charmed life
Oh i'm not in the way you say i am
Just talking because i'm lost today
All need caring all reasons staring
You're the ether reborn
And wander round the rest of your life


Waiting

Make me hopeless baby
Move the light and shade me
Take my sight and blind me
Leave a taste to remind me

The clouds openly like raining for you
So have and hold me
A moment told me
I need always with you

Make me hopeless baby
Coloured skies are fading
Only silence surrounds me
Need you're touch to refine me

And i openly like waiting for you
To have and hold me
A moment told me
I need always with you

Silver light

Late summer night
Painted purple
Storms from the right
Words that hurtle
Lips curl to fight
Eyes are startled
Blood from the bite
Seems to sparkle

Now is the time
It's too late to fly
Hurting just to hurt
No silver light to brighten
Clouds in our sight

Now is the time
It's too late to fly
I must try to stop this downpour and clear the skies

I just wanna make you

Say boy
Say girl
You got it all
Believe me
Want it all
Want it so bad
What makes you think
You can have it all

Say boy
Say girl
You got it all
Believe me

I just wanna, I just wanna make you
I just wanna, I just wanna make you

Say boy
Say girl
You got it all
Believe me
Want it all
Want it so bad
What makes you think
You can have it all

I just wanna, I just wanna make you
I just wanna, I just wanna make you

Say boy

Vers toi

( French vocal )

Quand maman vient me réveiller
Et que tout le monde est levé

Quand maman vient me réveiller
Et que tout le monde est levé

Vers toi Seigneur
J'attends le Seigneur X8

Dans ta maison je suis entré
Il y fait bon pour te parler
Toutes les voix de la journée
Je les prends pour te les donner

Vers toi Seigneur
J'attends le Seigneur...

Double view

No you can't change my mind
Let's go ahead and catch the tide

It's out now
Don't doubt that I'll apply
I paid up
I'm ready to ride

Wonderful views from here
We're breathing
We're breathing
We're breathing

Blue autumn

It happens when you're gone
The place you lay still warm
Then i close every single door
But barely can i wait

Blue autumn let me down
Leave me scattered on the ground
And decide
Won't you fly away from me

It's over when it's gone
But barely can i demand
My feelings ever mean a thing
If i beg you what would i be

Blue winter let me down
Leave me frozen on the ground
And decide
Won't you fly away from me

Blue summer bring me round
Bathe in circles from the sun
To decide
Don't you fly away from me

Portable living room

Oh said you'd rule
Does he say when he's got to be something in your flame
Does love go with you and your flying scene
Oh don't go will you
I suddenly fly
Under the room where the love goes by

Said you'd rule
Do eyes go black and suit you
Do others run when you become
A portable living room
Oh don't go will you
I suddenly fly
Under the room where the love goes by

Heal on high,
My sigh,
Heal on high

You flee your home you're one hundred and three
Bless this world bless man for me
You've finally gone touched your home
When your love is mine

When your love is mine
On summers sometimes
You just hate your hell
But i don't know what's worth your love
Only on times
Take me to the movies oh nothing groovy on
There is a room

Without Some Help

This Is Where I Came In

(Written by Jimmy Webb / South EP)


Jarvis Cocker:

No need to tell me
'Cause I can see it in your eyes
I've seen that look before
That's why it comes as no surprise

Yeah, so this is where you're gonna leave me
So this is how our story ends
I can tell that this is where you're gonna leave me
Outside looking in
All alone again
Which way to the door
This is where I came in

And all my life has been a technicolor feature
That I have had to watch in tears from the thirteenth row
And I have lost every girl that I have ever loved
And they never change the story
And they never stop the show
No, no, no, no

This is my exit
I know without a doubt
I came in lonely
So that's how I'm going out

Because, yeah, this is where you're gonna leave me
Yeah, this is how the story ends
I can see it in your eyes
You're gonna leave me
Outside looking in
All alone again
Which way to the door
There
This is where I came in

And I think I'm gonna cry
Feeling like I'm gonna die
Now I'm gonna cry
Feeling like I'm gonna die
And now I'm gonna cry
Now I'm gonna cry
I may as well go and die

The Sky is Mine

Stargazing

Hello Eloise
Let me in on the secret that you will keep
Your eyes are wise
Your eyes are new eyes
Hello Eloise
Whisper the places that you have been
Tell me, was the sky blue
Were the stars bright
Was there sunshine over the daisies
Champion girl
Who's best in the world at
Stargazing, magic carpets
Hello Eloise
Hello Eloise
Your eyes are wide
Your eyes are new eyes
Champion girl
Who's best in the world at
Stargazing, magic carpets
Stargazing, magic carpets
Hello eloise
Hello eloise

Surely

Surely you know what i've been dying to say
God knows it's hard
When you're not here i can pour out my heart
The words just come
But timing isn't my best point
I miss the boat
Too scared to spit it out
I keep the lump in my throat
For crying out loud
What's the worst that can happen
Maybe i'll die
Maybe my life will begin
But sometimes even the best lines are misconstrued
At times i'm eloquent
Though not in front of you
I could keep it so quiet
Never tell you my secret
Living a lie
I yell inside
Timing isn't my best point
I miss the boat
Too scared to spit it out
Kept the lump in my throat
For crying out loud
What's the worst that can happen
Maybe i'll die
Maybe my life starts here
Surely you know what i've been dying to say

Brood

I understand you don't need to hold my hand
I realise that you have yourself to guide
I sympathise
And bless the day i gave your life to you
And gave you sense and memories
My job is done
I saw you through to where you begin to fly
Fly, you can fly
The years and the fears were empty long ago
Now my winter's wait has come
I sympathise

Push

Take hold of my doubts and crush them
Then give me a reason why
Insecurity gets the best of me
Leaves me lying there slowly losing air
Sure they're not out to get me
They only pretend they are
Fooling nobody, least not all of me
Old friends of mine lost over time
No more room, my head's full of them
Say the word so it goes again
Push me through
How hard can it be to stop it
I leave myself open wide
Rationality takes a swing at me
Leads me from despair
Oh to feel aware
No more words, can't hear what you say
Stay out there i'm too tired to play
Pull me through

Burn me again

Burn me again
Turn me round and you can burn me again
Learn in the end
Say it slowly so i'll learn in the end
Bury the pain
Hurt me softly and then bury the pain
Soften the rain
Feel this storm inside me soften the rain
Nurture me with hope
Help me grow from your seed
Feed me with your strength
Fill me up with your need
Heaven and hell
Keep me safe between this heaven and hell
Know me too well
You've hardly touched me yet you know me too well
Treat me with a kiss
Heal this aching inside
All the years i've lived yet you bring me to life, to life
Burn me again
Turn me round and you can burn me again
Soften the rain
Feel this storm inside me soften the rain
Burn me again
Burn me again

May

Looking at you talking to me
You're sitting right across the table
You may take my hand in your hands
You may take me home tonight
Drinking with you, sinking in you
I'm swaying through the conversation
You may ask what makes me happy
You may ask for one more dance
Looking at you looking at me
You may want to leave without me
Drinking slower, sinking faster
Your mouth is leaning in towards me
I can't breathe without you
But i can breathe just with you
You may want to leave without me
You may take me home tonight
You may want to leave without me

Given time

Given time, i'll be fine
Hold your breath
No, i'll hold mine
Stay around, stay with me
Soon you'll see, i'll be fine
Just a day's too soon to say
I'll come round when least expected
Find my way
Hold my hand
Understand
I'll be fine, given time
Hard to say, to give away
Pour your heart into my head again today
Help me down, help me out
Given time, i'll be fine

For the wages

It's late and it's loud, got to get away
I'm scared, i'm not proud, of every day
I'm colouring in empty pages
Just giving my time for the wages
I don't want to, want you ever to see me cry
It was always, always going to be goodbye
I didn't think twice when you kissed me, once
Immune to advice, hearing foreign tongues
You lifted my life from the madness
A sweet golden light out of sadness
I don't want to, want you ever to see me cry
'Cause it was always, always going to be goodbye
You're not aloud to see
You had the best of me
It doesn't matter now
I didn't give a damn
'Cause life is all a sham
I'm always wrong somehow
I don't want to, want you ever to see me cry
It was always, always going to be goodbye
I don't want to, want you ever to see me cry
It was always, always going to be goodbye

Home

Inside i knew the passing of time would lead to you
Impossible, yet tangible, an ancient dream comes true
Happy since confessing your affect on me
You are my song, you're my appetite
You lift me higher than any satellite
And i'm just still astounded
I didn't know there was perfection
I tried to lose the quest for home
Then i found you
Anyhow, i broke the spell
Was swept away on the swell
Sail for home
Inside i knew
Home is you

Stumbled

I can't change what i've done
It's luck, it's fate
I just don't go there
Took me since i was young
Accept, embrace, i'm on my way here
Over and over and over i stumbled
Following paths that were heavy with dreams
Over and over i'm humbled
These are the paths that have led me right here
I don't have regrets
It's all made me me
I'm placing my bets on having you hear
I'm home, my love, home
I can't change what i've done
It's luck, it's fate
I just don't go there
Took me since i was young; accept, embrace
I'm on my way here
Over and over and over i stumbled
Following paths that were heavy with dreams
Over and over and over i'm humbled
These are the paths that have led me right here
But i don't have regrets, it's all made me me
I'm placing my bets on just having you near
I don't have regrets, oh no

Silver bullet

Was that smile meant for me
Are my eyes too tired to see
Terrified and paralysed
Mesmerised and hypnotised
Why do you have to sit so near
What's this ringing in my ears
Knowingly and willingly
Silently and tenderly
How can i eat when my mouth screams to touch you
Tortured in sleep, dreams content to explore you
Were you only being kind, when i brushed your lips with mine
Longing now to touch your skin, ashamed of my imagining
Circling around, senses only betray me
Heady as wine, eyes that intoxicate me
I suppose it's just the situation
Too confined to my imagination
But… somewhere
Was that smile meant for me
Are my eyes too tired
Terrified and paralysed
Mesmerised and hypnotised

A little poison

A little poison numbs the senses
Slows the flow – slow the flow
Nothing simpler
See it's easy
Bring it on
Bring it on
I'll show you all
I'll prove you wrong, in a while
It's peculiar
Doesn't hurt me anymore, anymore
And I'll show you all
I'll prove you wrong
In a while, in a while
Watch me fly
Heights don't scare me
The sky is mine
You won't stop me
A little poison numbs the senses
Send them in, send them in
Yes I'll show you all
And prove you wrong
In a while, in a while
Watch me fly
Heights don't scare me
The sky is mine
You won't stop me
As i show you all
And prove you wrong
In a while, in a while

Eleventh Trip

In This

Hannah Collins:

I need a break
Can anybody take this weight from me
From me
I need a break
Can anyone take this fear out of me
Out of me

In this silence
In this shadow

My body aches
Can anybody wake me up
Me up
Me up

No mistake
Just a little twist of fate
Will lift me up

In this silence
In this shadow

Where do I go
Is there anyone I know
I know
I know
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
'Cause I'm here alone
Will anybody lead me home
Me home
Me home

In this shadow
There's an empty space
That I don't want to waste
Next to me
Next to me

But there's a phrase
That everything's in its place
I'll let it be
It be

In this silence
In this shadow

But if you come my way
Carry me with you
The flame I crave
Is the light of you

But if you come my way
Carry me with you
The flame I crave
Is the light of you

If the sky's grey
Could you make it blue
And if a storm raged
Could you make the sun shine

But if you come my way
Carry me with you
'Cause the flame I crave
Is the light of you

If the sky's grey
Could you make it blue

Stay

You don't stay anymore
Since you left the first home and ran
You wont stay anymore
Looking where its safe, warmer

That don't bother me at all
That don't bother me at all
That don't bother me at all
That don't bother me at all

You won't say that im wrong
Book yourself a plane and run
You just plough in your face
All the bruises left are numb

So I won't bother you at all
I won't bother you at all

You lie
And stay low
You lie
And stay low

You won't say that im wrong
Book yourself a plane and run
You just plough in your face
All the bruises left are numb

So I won't bother you at all
I won't bother you at all

You lie
And stay low
You lie
And stay low

You won't say that im wrong
Book yourself a plane and run
You just plough in your face
All the bruises left are numb
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So I wont bother you at all
I won't bother you

So I wont bother you at all
I won't bother you

You lie
And stay low
You lie
And stay low

You lie
And stay low
You lie
And stay low

*** Thanx a lot to Filipe for this one ***

Cilla

Hannah Collins:

When you can learn to be still
When all your thoughts you watch from a distance
When you can feel you belong
Without a thing but the air you breathe

When you can look with kindness
Upon yourself and everyone you see
When you feel so in love
Without a thing but the air that you breathe
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
When you can learn to be still
When all your thoughts you watch from a distance
When you feel you belong
Without a thing but the air that you breathe

Of value associated with any of the art? Yes.
Would you ever have been seen on television? Yes.
Are you a performer? Yes.
Would you be considered a leading man? Yes.
[Salvador Dalí on "What's My Line?"]

When you can learn to be still
When all your thoughts you watch from a distance
When you can feel you belong
Without a thing but the air you breathe

When you can look with kindness
Upon yourself and everyone you see
When you feel so in love
Without a thing but the air that you breathe

You'll know
This is where you want to be
You'll know
You're eternity
You'll know
A true harmony
You'll know
There's nothing you need

You'll know
This is where you want to be
You'll know
You're eternity
You'll know
A true harmony
You'll know
There's nothing you need

Sunedune

Wendy Stubbs:

Sliding feet through shifting sand
You picked me up and held my hand
Warm sand dune at sundown

Sheltered from wind and the eyes of the world
You lay me down while I unfurled
Warm sand dune at sundown
Sand dune at sundown

If I had my life again
Then I'd stay with you
Your heart is a star that lights my world
But distance is cruel

Summer cooled and so did I
I left the beach and joined the sky
Sundown

Now I've come back wishing I'd never gone
I see our ghosts and I hear your song
Warm sand dune at sundown
Sand dune at sundown
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
If I had my life again
Then I'd stay with you
Your heart is a star that lights my world
But distance is cruel

If I had my life again
Then I'd stay with you
Your heart is a star that lights my world
But distance is cruel

Summertime was our time
When we'd keep out of reach
Laughing eyes in glowing skies
We'd rush across the beach

Covers Been Blown

Hannah Collins:

Now this web is spun
And the papers signed and sealed
Now this deal is done
All will be revealed

Now that we are here
And this moment is our own
Everything is clear
Covers been blown

Broken glass
Beneath my feet
If I could run
I may just reach you

My heart is bound
In rusty chains
When the bubble bursts
I can hear your name

Now the clouds have moved on
Our eyes are open wide
The mask we have worn
Leaves us nowhere else to hide
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
The story is complete
Every single word's been told
What is it you seek
The answer you hold

Broken glass
Beneath my feet
If I could run
I may just reach you

My heart is bound
In rusty chains
When the bubble bursts
I can hear your name

Broken glass
Beneath my feet
Now I can run
I feel that you are near

My heart was bound
In rusty chains
Now the bubbles burst
Nothing stays the same
Nothing stays the same

Don't Stop It's War

Once upon a time, in the land of Hush-A-Bye
Around about the wondrous days of yore
They came across a sort of box
Bound up with chains and locked with locks
And labeled "Kindly do not touch; it's war"
A decree was issued round about, and all with a flourish and a shout
And a gaily colored mascot tripping lightly on before
Don't fiddle with this deadly box or break the chains or pick the locks
And please don't ever play about with war
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Well, the children understood. Children happen to be good
And they were just as good around the time of yore
They didn't try to pick the locks or break into that deadly box
They never tried to play about with war
Mommies didn't either; sisters, aunts, grannies neither
'Cause they were quiet, and sweet, and pretty
In those wondrous days of yore

Well, very much the same as now
And not the ones to blame somehow
For opening up that deadly box of war
But someone did. Someone battered in the lid
And spilled the insides out across the floor
A sort of bouncy, bumpy ball made up of guns and flags
And all the tears, and horror, and death that goes with war
It bounced right out and went bashing all about
Bumping into everything in store. And what was sad and most unfair
Was that it didn't really seem to care
Much who it bumped or why or what or for
["The Box", poem by Lascelles Abercrombie]

Don't stop walking now
For you have come so far on your own
Don't stop when you know not
Where you're headed to
Though you have come so far on your own
And you will go on...

Don't fiddle with this deadly box or break the chains or pick the locks
And please don't ever play about with war

Don't stop walking now
For you have come so far on your own
Don't stop when you know not
Where you're headed to
Though you have come so far on your own

Lisbon

Wendy Stubbs:

We fell in love in Lisbon
Paris, delicious in rain
I never knew I'd never fall again

Loving you is so easy
I've done it for quite some time
As habits go this one is just sublime

We fell in love in Lisbon
Paris, delicious in rain
I never knew I'd never fall again
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Loving you is so easy
I've done it for some time
As habits go this one is so sublime

So sublime
So sublime
So sublime
So sublime
So sublime

Home Land

Hannah Collins:

You are my homeland
You are my light

My heart sings your name
Walk with me through darkness
Run with me through rain
I will love you until I lie beneath the flowers
Hold you until I go back to the stars
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You are my homeland
You are my light
My light
My homeland

Revolution

( The Beatles / From Revolution EP )

You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction

Don't you know you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Don't you know it's gonna be alright

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're doing what we can
But when you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you have to wait

Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Don't you know it's gonna be alright
Don't you know it's gonna be alright

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
