"Music can be an amazingly potent thing," says Matt Hales, aka Aqualung. "When I sing into the microphone in the studio, I'm whispering my secrets in people's ears.
When it connects, it can be so powerful. It's still a remarkable process to me."  Indeed, in a field crowded with empty shouting, Words and Music - the English  singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer's fourth album (and third U.S.release) under his longstanding nom de disc Aqualung - has the feeling of a series of deep emotional truths whispered in confidence. An effortlessly intimate set of subtly crafted, organically melodic tunes with openhearted lyrics and spare, mostly acoustic
arrangements, Words and Music features some of Hales' most compelling work to  date. Such subtly soulful tunes as "7 Keys," "Arrivals," "Good Goodnight" and "When  I Finally Get My Own Place" balance adult emotional insight and childlike wonder, and are squarely in the tradition of such introspective pop auteurs as Brian Wilson
and Paul Simon. Not coincidentally, Simon's '70s classic "Slip Sliding Away"receives a poignant interpretation from Hales on the album.

Words and Music - which Hales co-produced with his brother and musical right-hand man Ben, who also provides guitar, bass and harmony vocals, and co-wrote several  songs - is the product of an extended period of soul-searching that caused the artist to seriously reexamine his career priorities, after a life that's been spent making music.
Hales began writing songs at the age of four and won a music scholarship at 16, and soon saw his classical symphony Life Cycle performed by a 60-piece orchestra. He  later achieved a modicum of U.K. notoriety with a pair of British rock combos, Ruth and The 45's, but eventually grew weary of band life. Hales began recording as Aqualung in 2002, and achieved some unexpected early success when his demo of the song "Strange and Beautiful" appeared in a Volkswagen TV commercial and immediately struck a chord with listeners. That fluke occurrence turned Aqualung from a modest lo-fi bedroom recording project into a successful major-label act.

Hales' first two U.K. albums, Aqualung and Still Life were combined to create  Aqualung's first U.S. release Strange and Beautiful, which became a substantial  stateside hit. Meanwhile, Hales demonstrated the flexibility of his songcraft by presenting his music in a variety of live formats, from solo piano performances to gigs with a four-piece band to concerts with a 17-person ensemble. The conflicting emotions generated by Hales' unexpected mainstream success were reflected in 2007's Memory Man, a densely packed, largely electronic meditation on the disconnection and dislocation that Hales was feeling at the time. Those emotions left  the lifelong musician and songwriter unsure of whether he wanted to continue as a recording artist.

"I'd been on the road for about three years, and I was as unwell and as unhappy as I've ever been," he recalls. "I thought, 'This is absolutely ridiculous, how can this be  the result of success?' I felt like I was completely done, and like I had to stop. So I came home and hung out with my family and got busy producing and writing for other people, and had a think about what I might do next. But then I started to write some songs, and I eventually came back to realizing how much I would miss it if I gave it up. I realized that I just had to find a way to carry on, but on my own terms."  Eventually, Hales and his brother Ben began cutting unfussed, stripped-down recordings in Matt's home studio, with little thought of releasing them to the public. "It was really me and my brother sitting at home in London, just seeing what would happen if we tried out this sound or this tone. Initially, we were just playing around with new versions of old songs, but then I started writing new songs, and it grew and grew, and at some point it started feeling like a record.

"I wasn't really expecting anyone to want to release it, to be honest," Hales adds. "It was really more of an experiment for me, because after having made a deliberately synthetic record with Memory Man, I was reacting against that and wanting to make something that was entirely organic and furry."  The almost-accidental nature of Words and Music's birth cycle is consistent with the unpremeditated manner in which Aqualung first came into being, and Hales is happy to be returning to his D.I.Y. roots. "Ever since I began making music," he says, "my best work has come from a sense of feeling at home and connected and grounded and safe and happy. And this record, which was made without any external pressures or timetables or plan, came from that place, and connected me back to that. Listening to it, I feel relieved and rescued.

"I nearly called this album Heart Songs, because that's sort of what they are," Hales notes. "Memory Man was completely a head record, but Words and Music is all heart.
It barely has a head; it's basically just a heart and a grin. There's something about the spirit of these recordings that feels like the start of something new. I don't know  exactly where it will take me, but it will be very interesting to find out."

Aqualung

Strange and beautiful (i'll put a spell on you)

I've been watching your world from afar
I've been trying to be where you are
And I've been secretly falling apart
Unseen
To me, you're strange and you're beautiful
You'd be so perfect with me
But you just can't see
You turn every head but you don't see me

I'll put a spell on you
You fall asleep
And I put a spell on you
And when I wake you I'll be the first thing you see
And you'll realise that you love me

Yeah
Ye-ah

Sometimes the last thing you want comes in first
Sometimes the first thing you want never comes
But I know that waiting is all you can do
Sometimes

I'll put a spell on you
You fall asleep
I'll put a spell on you
And when I wake you I'll be the first thing you see
And you'll realise that you love me

I'll put a spell on you
You fall asleep
Cause I put a spell on you
And when I wake you I'll be the first thing you see
And you'll realise that you love me, yeah

Yeah
Ye-ah
Yeah
Ye-ah

Falling out of love

I watch the sun
See it rise and fall
Waiting for something to change
I get through the day
Hope to turn things around
Seems like

I'm falling out of love

Feeling alone
With you by my side
Further and further away
Funny how long
A moment can seem
When you're trying to hold on
Feels like

I'm falling out of love

Good times gonna come

Need to know
If you're letting go
It's alright,alright, it's alright
Didn't know
I was hurting you so
It's alright, alright, it's alright.

You came to me from nowhere
With nothing
And no-one
Hold tight, hold tight, hold tight
Goes to show
You never really know
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

This is just one of those
Lonely night
The good times gonna come

See me then
Investing so much
In you, in you, in you
Came so close
To the edge
I do, I do, I do

This is just one of those
Lonely night
The good times gonna come

In the end
We let it go away
We let it float away
On the breeze

'Round the bend
The sun is in the sky
It's starting to look like
It's gonna be, yeah, it's gonna be
A bright
Beautiful day
Yeah, the good times gonna come, oh no
The good times gonna come, yeah, yeah,

This is just one of those
Lonely night
The good times gonna come, oh,
The good times gonna come, oh yeah
The good times gonna come, ohh
The good times gonna come, yeah.
Need to know if you're letting go
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

If i fall

Swept away
By the wonder of it all
So amazed
Never saw it coming
Left me dazed
And i don't know where to turn

Here and now
Seems i'm standing on the edge
Looking down
I can clearly see your face
In the crowd
Makes me feel i'm not alone

If i fall
Will you catch me

Seems to me
I'm exactly where i dreamt
I would be
And the view from here is
Something to see
But i need a hand to hold on to

If i fall
Will you catch me

Just for a moment

Just for a moment
Everything i treasured was gone
Just for a moment
I faced my life alone

Oh how i love you

Just for a moment
The world was full of pain
Just for a moment
My luck had finally run out

Oh how i love you

The same thing that blew us together
Might blow us apart
So keep a piece of me precious
And close to your heart

Just for a moment
All of my nightmares came true
Just for a moment
My heart was broken in two

Oh how i need you
Oh how i'd miss you
Oh how i love you

Tongue-tied

I'm tongue tied
Waiting
Hoping
And praying
Lying
Beside you
Longing
To touch you

But this feels like the end

So tired
We are
Drifting
Too far
Eyes closed
Tightly
Thinking
There might be
Some way

But this feels like the end

What went wrong
I need to know
I can feel
You're letting go
Though there is
So much to say
I'm tongue tied
Tongue tied
Waiting

I'm tongue tied
Waiting
Hoping
And praying
So near
Yet so far
Alone
Together

Still this feels like the end
Still this feels like the end
Still this feelslike the end
Feels like the end

Can't get you out of my mind

A kiss is not just a kiss
A smile is more than a smile
Maybe we get together
Maybe forever
Maybe just for a while

I've seen the look in your eye
I've seen you wondering why
There's a centre of gravity
Brings you near to me
Nearer all the time

And I'm petrified
I'm hypnotised
Every time you walk by
And I can't get you
Out of my

Thought you'd never be mine
I thought I was wasting my time
Darling every time I think of you
I can't believe it's true
That you're here by my side

And I'm petrified
I'm hypnotised
Everytime you walk by
And I'm every time
Petrified
Every time you walk by
And I can't get you
Out of my mind

I can't get you
Out of my mind
I can't get you
Out of my mind

Everything changed

Magic drifted through the air
Touching everybody there
You came into my life so small
Altering everything changed

I looked into my crystal ball
The future wasn't clear at all
And yesterday was hard enough
At the top of this precipice

Magic settled on the floor
And there she lived forever more
Turning minutes into hours and days
Stumbling tumbling on

Nothing can be the sameas it was
I know
I know

Gentle

This is not the time to wonder why
Just let the heart and mind
Be still for just some time
This is the time for the rest
Just let it go
You know its for the best

If you're fragile,
And if you're delicate
Take my hand but be gentle with me please
Let the river flow
Washing over me
For a while
But be gentle with me please

This is not the time to compromise
If you're feeling it too
Then you've realised
This is the time for a change
Yes you know it's true
Deep down within you

If you're fragile,
And if you're delicate
Take my hand but be gentle with me please
Let the river flow
Washing over me
For a while
But be gentle with me please

Let the river flow
Washing over me
For a while
But be gentle with me please
But be gentle with me please

If you're fragile,
And if you're delicate
Take my hand but be gentle with me please
Let the river flow
Washing over me
For a while
But be gentle with me please

Let the river flow
Washing over me
For a while
But be gentle with me please
Be gentle with me please
Be gentle with me please
Be gentle with me please

Nowhere

So
Is it over
Time
Would have told you
Piece
By piece
Til the stillness
Echoing

No-one
Nothing
Nothing
No-one
Could make me feel
The way I'm feeling
No-one

Hands
Let me hold you
Eyes
Let me see your face
Smile again
As the world
Goes tumbling

There is
Nowhere
I would rather spend
These lazy crazy days
Then here
Nowhere

Hmmm, baby

Halfway to the bottom

You're either dipping your toe
Or you're drowning
You're either dipping your toe
Or you're drowning
Is it better never to start
Than to bear the pain
Of having to stop
Of having to stop

Halfway to the bottom
Instantly forgotten

I never thought it would come
So easy
I never thought it would go
So quickly
Is it safer never to love
Than to risk your heart
Having to lose
Having to lose

Halfway to the bottom
Instantly forgotten
I don't know
Which way to go

Is it wiser never to speak
Than to raise your voice
And never be heard
Never be heard
Never be heard

Still Life

Brighter than sunshine

I never understood before
I never knew what love was for
My heart was broke, my head was sore
What a feeling

Tied up in ancient history
I didnt believe in destiny
I look up you're standing next to me
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
Brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, i don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine
And it's brighter than sunshine

I never saw it happening
I'd given up and given in
I just couldn't take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn't have the strength to fight
Suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun
It's brighter than the sun, sun, shine.

Love will remain a mystery
But give me your hand and you will see
Your heart is keeping time with me

What a feeling in my soul
Love burns brighter than sunshine
It's brighter than sunshine
Let the rain fall, I don't care
I'm yours and suddenly you're mine
Suddenly you're mine

I got a feeling in my soul ...

Left behind

Open the curtain
Let some light in
I feel so grey
The world got smashed to pieces
And put back together
The wrong way

Why you leaving me now
There must be some doubt in your mind
Can't you open your heart
Don't want to be left behind

Open the window
Let some air in
I feel so old
There - Where we were happy
Long ago
Yesterday

Why you leaving me now
There must be some doubt in your mind
Can't you open your heart
Don't want to be left behind

You open your mouth and I know
What you're going to say

Open the window
Let some air in
I feel so grey

Why you leaving me now
There must be some doubt in your mind
Can't you open your heart
Don't want to be left behind

You open your mouth and I know
What you're going to say

You turn me around

The end it was the end the sirens were pulling him down
And his heart was cold so very cold you believe it might never have beat

When the sun sets around me my daydreams confound me
And the long nights surrounds me
You turn me around
You turn me around

And you she was there too drownig and wanting it over
And her hope was all lost
All hope was lost given up and never again

But watch as fingertips touch and the life floods in
And they swim to the sun

And the long night surrounds me
You turn me around

I won't let you down won't let you down
I won't let you down you turn me around

Easier to lie

To bear the weight
And push into the sky
It's easier to lie, easier to lie
And honestly
To look you in the eye
It's easier to lie, easier to lie

To be the one,
To be the only one
Someone has to give a lot
Something has to give a lot
And who am I
To give you what you need?
Well I'm learning, just learning
Learning how to live and

To bear the weight
And push into the sky
It's easier to lie, easier to lie
And honestly
To look you in the eye
It's easier to lie, easier to lie

To fill the space,
The space you meant for me
I try to be the one you want
I try to be the way you want
Well maybe I
Could be the one you need
If you'd only show me
Show me how to live and

To bear the weight
And push into the sky
It's easier to lie, easier to lie
And do what's right
When everything is wrong
It's easier to run, it's easier
To never have
To look you in the eye
It's easier to lie, easier to lie

To bear the weight
And push into the sky
It's easier to lie

Another little hole

No need to tell her
She knows that there's
Another little hole
In her heart

Each day, each dollar
She knows it tears
Another little hole
In her heart

'Cause she feels it happen
No doubt that there's
Another little hole
In her heart
Another little hole
In her heart

Day is breaking
And time is taking
The love we're making
Away

This life can only
Leave us lonely
There's no tomorrow
Just another little hole
In her heart, yeah

No need to tell me
I know that there's
Another little tear
In my eye

I'm quite aware
I see that there's
Another little tear
In my eye

Do you ask yourself why
Should we ask ourselves why
Is there any point in wondering why
Any point in wondering why

Day is breaking
And time is taking
The love we're making
Away

This life can only
Leave us lonely
There's no tomorrow
Just another little tear
In my eye
Another little tear
In my eye
Another little tear
In my eye, yeah

I don't know. I don't know
I don't know. I don't, I don't know

I don't know. I don't know
I don't know. I don't, I don't know

I don't know. I don't know
I don't know. I don't know
I don't know. I don't know
I don't know. I don't, I don't know

The day is breaking
And time is taking
The love we're making
Away

The gods have spoken
The spell is broken
And love will tear us
Love will tear us
Apart

This life can only
Leave us lonely
There's no tomorrow
Just another little hole
In my heart
Another little hole
In my heart
Another little hole
In my heart

I don't know, I don't know
I don't know
I don't, I don't know

7 keys

It wasn't open
But somehow you let yourself in
Closed off and broken
I never wanted to go there again

I wasn't waiting
But you came at just the right time
Weary and wasted
I never knew I could feel so alive

Darling, believe
You're closer than anyone has ever been
Oh, baby, don't leave me alone
I'm yours for eternity
You hold the seven keys to my soul

Feel so connected
Like I've know you all along
I never expected
To fall into loving so deep
So deep and so strong

Darling, believe
You're closer than anyone has ever been
Oh, baby, don't leave me alone
I'm yours for eternity
You hold the seven keys to my soul

Closer than anyone, this is where we belong
Closer than anyone, this is where we belong
Closer than anyone, this is where we belong
Closer than anyone, this is where we belong

Darling, believe
You're closer than anyone has ever been
Oh, baby, don't leave me alone
I'm yours for eternity
You hold the seven keys to my soul

Extra ordinary thing

Cheer up, it might never happen, oh
It might never happen, well, we'll see
As I sit here spitting and churning, oh
It's clear that it's happening right now to me

Make it special
For a loved one
For a stranger
Peace is hard to
Hard to come by
Extraordinary thing

Why not believe in something?
Something's got to be better than nothing
Just because it's the end of the beginning
Doesn't mean it's the beginning of the end

Falling fragile
Broken busted
All for nothing
Sing my heart out
For a stranger
Extraordinary thing

Sing my heart out
For a stranger
Extraordinary thing

Breaking my heart again

Need to know
Don't wanna know
Already know
I've seen the signs
I watch you as you pull yourself away from me.

Can't believe
I wanna believe
How can I believe
You're making me doubt
I thought I knew you
I don't even know myself

I'm losing faith
I'm losing all faith

You're breaking my heart
Breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart again
Don't ask me to start
Ask me to start
Don't ask me to start again
Start again

I wanna fight
Afraid to fight
Why don't I fight
And make you see
I hold my breath
And disappear inside myself

I'm losing strength
I'm losing all strength

You're breaking my heart
Breaking my heart
You're breaking my heart again
Don't ask me to start
Ask me to start
Don't ask me to start again
Start again

Oh, you're breaking my heart again

Don't ask me to start
Ask me to start
Just don't ask me to start again
Start again

No
Oh, no, no
I'm losing you
I'm losing, oh, you

Take me home

Every day, keep making the same mistakes
Once again, I find myself in the same old place
And I'm wandering, wondering where to turn
There's a dead end straight ahead
Won't you take me home

And you said there's nothing you wouldn't do
And I answered, there's nothing in this world I need you to do
Just hold me in your arms
I feel so cold
There are dark clouds gathering
Won't you take me home

Oh, won't you take me home

I've been wandering, wondering where to go
There are dark clouds gathering
Won't you take me home

Oh, please won't you take me home
Oh, won't you take me home

Good goodnight

You talk in your sleep
I hear you say beautiful things
I love you, I do
You know that I do

The world is awake
But you don't hear
A sound that it makes
Asleep in dreams so deep

Peace in your heart
Peace in your soul
Peace in your head
Good goodnight

You're far from me now
But you'd be here
In the blink of an eye
If I spoke your name

The morning will come
For you and I
Life will go on
But keep at least from now 'til then

Peace in your heart
Peace in your soul
Peace in your head
Good goodnight

You talk in your sleep
You talk in your sleep

Memory Man

Cinderella

I'm on a roll
Everything I touch turns to shh...
It's taking it's toll
Can anybody get me off it
Stuck on a roll
And it's wearing thin

I remember the night
No wet eyes, no crossroads
No mention of fate
Just a poor decision

I shouldn't have gone
Even though my head would bust
I shouldn't have gone

Be careful what you hope and you pray for
You know you only get what you pay for
And I can hear the ticking of timebombs
For poor cinderella

I'm on a roll
Everything I touch turns to gold
It's taking its toll
Can anybody get me off it

I shouldn't have gone
Even though my head was busting
I shouldn't have gone

Be careful what you hope and you pray for
You know you only get what you pay for
And I can hear the ticking of timebombs
The clock strikes
It's midnight
For poor cinderella

Pressure suit

We're two spinning spheres
Two spinning spheres
In a bed of stars

Silence is super
Staring into space
I wonder where you are

You're all that I've ever needed
I know that you want to feel it

Drift out into the darkness
Lost out on the horizon
It's alright, it's alright
I'll be your respirator
I'll be your pressure suit
It's alright, it's alright

Violently clear
The upper atmosphere
Raging out your heart
Somewhere far beneath
Your pointed tognue and teeth
Is where you really are

I don't want to be be forgiven
But drag you down from where you are

Drift out into the darkness
Lost out on the horizon
It's alright, it's alright
I'll be your respirator
I'll be your parachute
It's alright, it's alright

I'll be your respirator
I'll be your pressure suit
It's alright, it's alright
I will not let you go

Two spinning spheres
They spin together
And they spin alone

I don't know how I can do this
I don't know how I can get through
It's alright, it's alright

I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you

It's alright, it's alright

I'll be your respirator
I'll be your pressure suit
It's alright, its alright

I'll be your four leaf clover
I'll be your pressure suit
I'll be your angel wings
I'll be your parachute
I'll be your only reason
I'll be your only reason

I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you

Oh
It's alright, it's alright

I'll be your respirator
I'll be your pressure suit

Something to believe in

You talk too much
Maybe that's your way
Of breaking up the silence
That fills you up
But it doesn't sound the same
When no one's really listening

We stumble
Into our lives
Reach for a hand to hold
Any wonder
We need to find
A certain something certain

Turn out the light
And what are you left with
Open up my hands
And find out they're empty
Press my face to the ground
I've gotta find a reason
Just scratching around
For something to believe in
Something to believe in

You have too much
Spending all your time
Collecting and discovering
It's not enough
And no matter how you try
You never find the one you want

We stumble into our lives
Without a hand to hold
Any wonder
We need to find
A certain something certain

Turn out the light
And what are you left with
Open up my hands
And find out they're empty
Press my face to the ground
I'm gonna find a reason
Still scratching around
For something to believe in
Something to believe in

Something I can believe in
Something I can believe in
Come on I need it
Something I can believe in now
Come on I need it
Something I can believe in
Come on I need it, oh

Something I can believe in
Come on I need it
Oh, oh

Right on, right now
Right on, right now
I just need something to believe in

Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Come on, come on

Glimmer

I know that I was lost
And I know that it was too too hard
And although it isn't much
I give you all I have

There's a mirror in the old place
A place where we would stand
And wonder at our sweet sweet selves
Smiling hand in hand
This wasn't what we planned

Thought the night has fallen
I close my eyes and imagine
A tiny glimmer flickering on the horizon

It takes time to get it right
Takes no time to get it wrong
I can't believe I didn't see
The ground was caving in
Oh, can we just start again

Everyday, everyday
Living my life like it's over
Like it's over and deep underground

Little look, little smile
Flick the switch and it's over
Like it's lost and can never be found

But maybe there's a tiny glow
That won't die and won't leave us
A lone star shining
The sun is rising

There's a tiny glimmer flickering on the horizon.
Can you see it, can you see it there
Can you see it, can you see it there's
A tiny glimmer flickering on the horizon

It takes time to get it right

Vapour trail

I was feeling nothing
Forever never took so long
One day then another
Then another on and on

All my life
All my love is there
Wish that love
Love was all it took to get me home

Strung out on the line
Watch the credit counting down
Running out of chances
Oh I'm running out of time

All my life
All my love is there
Wish that love
Love was all it took to get me home

All I need's a moments grace
So I just got to see your face
That's all
Pull my head between my knees
The earth might crack
The sky might freeze
That's all I'm asking for
Just let me go

One way or the other
I will feel your touch again
I got disconnected
But I still heard everything

All my life
All my love is there
Wish that love
Love was all it took to get me home
Get me home

All I needs a moments grace
So I just got to see your face
That's all
Pull my head between my knees
The earth might crack
The sky might freeze
That's all I'm asking for

Who was I take the risk
And watch my hands become two fists
That's all I'm asking for
That's all I'm asking for

I was in the garden
Wishing on a vapour trail
Pull your arms around me
Oh you make me happy
Oh just let me go
Just let me go

All I needs a moments grace
So I just got to see your face
That's all
Oh yeah
Pull my head between my knees
The earth might crack
The sky might freeze
That's all I'm asking for

Who was I to take the risk
And watch two hands become two fists
That's all I'm asking for
That's all I'm asking for
Just let me go
Just let me go

Put your arms around me

Rolls so deep

I'm gonna teach myself to drive
Down the road on the other side
I'm gonna set myself alive
To put some fire in my soul

Could've told you a million lies
Given everything to compromise
But you could run for a million miles
And still have nowhere to go

It's like lightning in a clear blue sky
There's a storm but you keep it inside
It's like thunder when I look in your eyes
And it rolls, it rolls
It rolls so deep

You're gonna have to wait awhile
Tune it in on another dial
Cause every time that you make me smile
Blood bursts out of a stone

And if I have to be myself again
Drown our tears in the pouring rain
It's the end of the holiday
And you don't wanna go home

It's like lightning in a clear blue sky
There's a storm but you keep it inside
It's like thunder when I look in your eyes
And it rolls, it rolls
It rolls so deep, yeah
It rolls, it rolls so deep

I wanna feel it everyday
I wanna feel it everyday everyday, oh

It's like thunder when I look in your eyes
And it rolls
It's like lightning in a clear blue sky
There's a storm but you keep it inside
It's like thunder when I look in your eyes
It's like thunder when I look in your eyes
And it rolls so deep, yeah
It rolls, it rolls so deep, yeah
It rolls, it rolls so deep

It's like lighting in a clear blue sky
There's a storm but you keep it inside
It's like thunder when I look in your eyes
It's like thunder when I look in your eyes
It's like thunder when I look in your eyes

The lake

This house is full of secrets
This house smells of ghosts
Dreams that never woke
Dreams that never woke
Nightmares never spoke aloud

Outside the water's black
This one won't throw back
A lifetime is too long
A lifetime is too long
Let's say no more about it

Listen to me
I can only say this once
Are you listening
See these empty hands
Knowing it was all for you
But I'll see you again
Down by the lake

Sleeping beauty stares
The whole world could be hers
But after all these years
After all these years
I'll say no more about it

Listen to me
I can only say this once
Are you listening
See these empty hands
Knowing it was all for you
Til I see you again
Yes, I'll see you again
When I see you again
Down by the lake

This house smells of ghosts

Black hole

Sooner or later this will fall apart
It takes more than science to save a failing heart
I wanted to keep you and hide you from the sun
But no one could reach you

You say I'm a black hole
Singularity
My own supernova
A blazing blind catastrophe
And for once I was a star
A long time before that
Somebody's sun

But enough of these pointless noises
Enough of just counting down
This is not a test
If love is not the answer
Then maybe I misunderstood oh the question
Oh there must be someway out of this

We stand in a circle
Hand in hand in hand
There's talk of a comet
Over moon and land
The sand has run out of the glass
We stand in a circle
We stand in a line

But enough of these pointless noises
Enough of just counting down
This is not a test
If hope is not the answer
Then maybe I misunderstood oh the question
Because there must be someway
I want it so ???
There's always someway

Well enough of these final nothings
There's no time to reconsider
So love was not the answer but maybe I misunderstood the question
Because it must be somewhere
I want it somewhere
There's always someway

Outside

He wants to give but he'll give himself away
She wants to take but she's taking all she can
They've got it al figured out
He wants to listen but there's so much more to say
She wants to shout it out loud but she doesn't
She doesn't open her mouth

Had enough of crying
When she's happy and smiling when she said
Had enough of wondering
What became of all the dreams he had
Oh there out there somewhere

Baby don't you say there on the inside
Together we can make it on the outside
You and me on the outside

Can you remember the way it used to feel
Run as fast and as far as we wanted to go
Then the walls closed in
And I was one step forward and two steps back
Two steps forward and three steps back
Oh it's all too much
So take my hand we'll jump together

Baby I won't leave you on the inside
Together we can make it on the outside
You and me on the outside
You and me on the outside
On the outside

Shine your light on me and I'll shine my light on you
Shine my light on you if you shine your light on me
Shine your light on me and I'll shine my light on you
On the outside
On the outside
On the outside

Baby I won't leave you on the inside
Together we can make it on the outside
You and me on the outside
You and me on the out, yeah
You and me on the outside

Garden of love

In the garden of love I saw
A moment of sun in her eye
And everything was quiet

In the garden of love I saw
Starlight sigh and shadow move

Faltering, no faltering
Faltering

Before you go, a few words for your heart
Before you turn, something to ponder in your heart
As you go

In our garden of love we grew
Roses so red our hearts were busted open
All feeding on the dream we made
The bright and beautiful parade
That bloom by bloom began to fade
And blow by blow, oh

Before you go, a few words for your heart
Before you turn, something to ponder in your heart
As you go

How we tried to make everything right
How we fought and we talked through the night
How we nearly
Made it

In the garden of love I saw
A moment of sun in her eye
And everything was quiet

Stepping out into the light
Other side of the window
Blinking and blind in the light
Other side of the window
Falter, no faltering now
Other side of the window
Falter, no faltering now
That journey is over
Over
Over

There's only so much that our heart can grow
Then everything else starts to overflow
And you're young and in love
Back then there was no way of knowing

So we pushed and we pulled with our nerves of steel
You had the pedals and I had the wheel
And the terrible misillusions
We never knew where we were going

There's only so much that our heart can grow
Then everything else starts to overflow
But you're young and in love
Back then there was no way of knowing

Broken bones

Picking up broken words
Snipping the tips off
Grinding down the long ones
That wind around your eardrums

Dangerous plastic words
For crowd dispersal
And dumb dumb words
That could blow your head off

This is a story 'bout the three of us
Down by the water and the tide is rising
This world is burning and I'm terrified
I need a little more time with you, oh
I just need a little more time with you

One fine day you'll sing
Your inevitable love song
Inevitable lie song
Inevitable cry song

Time bends broken bones
Time bends broken bones
'Til they wrap around your throat
And snap around your fingers

This is a story 'bout the three of us
Down by the water and the tide is rising
This world is burning and I'm terrified
I need a little more time with you, oh

Down by the water and the tide keeps rising
This world is burning and I'm terrified
I need a little more time with you
Oh, I just need a little more time with you
Oh please, just a little more time with you

Words and Music

7 keys

It wasn't open
But somehow you let yourself in
Closed off and broken
I never wanted to go there again

I wasn't waiting
But you came at just the right time
Weary and wasted
I never knew I could feel so alive

Darling, believe
You're closer than anyone has ever been
Oh, baby, don't leave me alone
I'm yours for eternity
You hold the seven keys to my soul

Feel so connected
Like I've know you all along
I never expected
To fall into loving so deep
So deep and so strong

Darling, believe
You're closer than anyone has ever been
Oh, baby, don't leave me alone
I'm yours for eternity
You hold the seven keys to my soul

Closer than anyone, this is where we belong
Closer than anyone, this is where we belong
Closer than anyone, this is where we belong
Closer than anyone, this is where we belong

Darling, believe
You're closer than anyone has ever been
Oh, baby, don't leave me alone
I'm yours for eternity
You hold the seven keys to my soul

Slip sliding away

( Simon And Garfunkel cover )

Slip sliding away
Slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

And I know a man
He came from my hometown
He wore his passion for his woman
Like a thorny crown

He said Dolores
I live in fear
My love for you's so overpowering
I'm afraid that I will disappear

He slip sliding away
Slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

And I know a woman
Who became a wife
These are the very words
She uses to describe her life

She said a good day ain't got no rain
She said a bad day is when I lie in the bed
And I think of things that might have been

She slip sliding away
Slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

Slip sliding away
Slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

And I know a father who had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd done
He came a long way just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and headed home again

He slip sliding away
Slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

Slip sliding away
Slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination
The more you slip sliding away

Can't get you out of my mind

A kiss is not just a kiss
A smile is more than a smile
Maybe we get together
Maybe forever
Maybe just for a while

I've seen the look in your eye
I've seen you wondering why
There's a centre of gravity
Brings you near to me
Nearer all the time

And I'm petrified
I'm hypnotised
Every time you walk by
And I can't get you
Out of my

Thought you'd never be mine
I thought I was wasting my time
Darling every time I think of you
I can't believe it's true
That you're here by my side

And I'm petrified
I'm hypnotised
Everytime you walk by
And I'm petrified
I'm hypnotised
Everytime you walk by
And I can't get you
Out of my mind

I can't get you
Out of my mind
I can't get you
Out of my mind

Good goodnight

You talk in your sleep
I hear you say beautiful things
I love you, I do
You know that I do

The world is awake
But you don't hear
A sound that it makes
Asleep in dreams so deep

Peace in your heart
Peace in your soul
Peace in your head
Good goodnight

You're far from me now
But you'd be here
In the blink of an eye
If I spoke your name

The morning will come
For you and I
Life will go on
But keep at least from now 'til then

Peace in your heart
Peace in your soul
Peace in your head
Good goodnight

You talk in your sleep
You talk in your sleep

Mr. Universe

Lead me, I'll follow
Feed me, I'll swallow
If this ain't the real thing
I don't want the real thing

Ignore me I'll sit here
I know where I fit here
You don't give a shit
Dear but really I do

Oh, take me with you
I'd crawl through coal to kiss you
Just give me that sign and there I'll be

I used to be so tired
Felt like I had expired
But woman you saved me
You came and enslaved me

And now I know exactly what to do
I know exactly where to go
This is just how I dreamt it might turn out to be

Come on disrespect me
'Cause I know that you'll protect me
Just give me that sign and there I'll be, yeah

Baby
When I'm
With you
Nothing seems to matter

Baby
When I'm
With you
Nothing seems to matter
Nothing seems to matter

Stars spinning round me
How will they ever find me
Everything seems so long ago

There is no need to worry
'Cause we don't need anybody
Just give me that sign and there I'll be, yeah

Baby
When I'm
With you
Nothing seems to matter

Baby
When I'm
With you
Nothing seems to matter...

On my kness

All I want is to go back to the beginning
And try to make it new
But it is so hard to find a way to be forgiven
Find the right way back to you
Babe, no don't leave me like this
I must've been crazy, girl, to do what I did

Don't you hear me calling
I'm on my knees
Don't you feel me falling
At your feet
All alone in the darkness
Holding my heart
Singing please, please
Hear me calling now

In my heart you'll find a piece of me is missing
And there's nothing I can do
Look in my eyes you'll see I'm barely even living, no
What's living without you
I've got to tell you baby

I, I've got so much to say
It cuts me to pieces how you turn me away

Don't you hear me calling
I'm on my knees
Don't you feel me falling
At your feet
All alone in the darkness holding my heart
Singing please, please, oh

Babe we've got so much to say
It cuts me to pieces how you push me away

Don't you hear me calling
I'm on my knees
Don't you feel me falling
At your feet
All alone in the darkness, holding my heart
Singing please, please
Hear me calling now

Everything changed

Magic drifted through the air
Touching everybody there
You came into my life so small
Altering everything changed

I looked into my crystal ball
The future wasn't clear at all
And yesterday was hard enough
At the top of this precipice

Magic settled on the floor
And there she lived forever more
Turning minutes into hours and days
Stumbling tumbling on

Nothing can be the same as it was
I know
I know

When I Finally Get My Own Place

( Brighter than sunshine EP )

When I finally get my own place
The walls will be white
When I finally get my own place
I will stay out every night
And it will be quiet

When I finally get my own place
It will do its best to please me
When I finally get my own place
It will have windows I will need
A garden I will weed
Fish I will feed

You don't need to be lonely
You don't need to be lost
You don't need to know what you're living for
You just knock on my door

When I
When I

When I finally get my own place
I'll fly into a rage
Knock myself out
And after hours of whispering through the keyhole
I'll let myself back into your arms

You don't need to be lonely
You don't need to be lost
You don't need to know what you're living for
You just knock on my door

Will you love me
And hold me, and open up to let me in
But I will leave you in the end
I will leave you in the end

Oh-oh-oh
Yeah-yeah

When I finally get my own place
However low I go
It won't say a word
Let the floor come up to meet me
Walls collapse to keep me
It's the only way

You don't need to be lonely
You don't need to be lost
You don't need to know what you're living for

You don't need to be lonely
You don't need to be lost
You don't need to know what you're living for

You don't need to be sure
You just knock on my door

When I
When I

Nothing Else Matters

If the chute doesn't open
If this plan doesn't work
Going down, down, down, down, down
Kinda great to know, as I take the stand
This is it, my one last chance

And everything's shattered
Everthing's falling apart
I'm lying in tatters
Barely a beat in my heart
But nothing else matters, oh

If a man is a sum of all that he's done
Then I'm nothing much today
And if it's true what they say
And you are what you eat
Then I'm nothing much today

And everything's shattered
Everthing's falling apart
I'm lying in tatters
Barely a beat in my heart
But nothing else matters, oh
Nothing else matters

Going down, down, down
Going down, down, down
Going down, down, down
Down, down
Oh...

Arrivals

It has started
Can't be stopped
Call the ferryman
to cast me off
Send me, send me
Over the ocean to find you

Not the radio
Not today
There is nothing left
You can say
Just get me, get me
Over the ocean to find you

Close your eyes, baby
Close your eyes
Sunshine
Wait for one more sunrise
Then I'm home, I'm home

Feel the rumbling
Through the chair
Feel the future
Hanging in the air
Fly me, fly me
Over the ocean to see you

And we're hurrying
And we wait
Now we're tumbling
To the gate
Send me, quickly
Over the ocean to find you

Close your eyes
Close your eyes, baby
Close your eyes
Sunshine
Just this one last sunrise
And I'm home
I'm home

Magnetic North

New friend

Oh, I got a new friend
He's waving hello
See it come, like smell
Like a comet tail, then he goes

Say hello to my new friend
From my head to my toes
Oh my, he's filling me up
With all these things he knows

Can you hear him singing along
Do you hear him singing along
Can you hear, can you hear
What he's singing

In love with my new friend
Ohh, he's googly eyed
So bright, just a little glint
And you will be blind

Say goodbye to your old friends
They're just so weak and so old
Make way, for the most wonderful stories
That have ever been told

Can you hear him singing along
Do you hear him singing along
Can you hear, can you hear
What he's singing

Can you hear him singing along
Are you picking up the words of his song
Can you hear, can you hear
What he's singing

He wants to sing it
(Sing it)
To sing it
(Sing it)
To sing it again

He wants to sing it
(Sing it)
To sing it
(Sing it)
To sing it again

He wants to sing it
(Sing it)
And sing it
And sing it
Forever more, more

He wants to sing it
(Sing it)
To sing it
(Sing it)
To sing it again

He wants to sing it

To sing it
(Sing it)
To sing it again

He wants to sing it
And sing it
And sing it forever more, more

Can you hear him singing along
Do you hear him singing along
Can you hear, can you hear
What he's singing

Are you picking up the words of his song
Can you hear, can you hear
What he's singing
Can you hear, can you hear
What he's singing

I got a new friend
I got a new friend

Say hello
Say hello

Say hello

Reel Me In

Don't listen to the TV
And don't listen to the radio
Don't let anybody tell you
That this old ship, is going down

Black bottom of the ocean
Picked up by an invisible hand
Air filling down my insides
And now the sea, the stars, the sky
The sea, the sea, the sea

Washed away down a water fall
I got swallowed by the undertow
I twist and turn but I know
There's only one way out of this

So honey if you're listening
Press your ear to the overflow
'Cause I'm just down here praying
Someone hears my S.O.S

I'm drowning, now reel me in

Fly back into the lift boat
Where did the women and the children go
Are these men my only friends
And we laugh, we laugh, we cry, we cry

And off the boats into the crowds and ooh
And from off the crowds and 'till we're sleepy, oh
Pull the covers up to my chin
Now, we fall and rise, we rise and fall
We leave it all behind

Washed away down a water fall
I got swallowed by the undertow
I twist and turn but I know
There's only one way out of this

So if there's anybody listening
Press your ear to the radio
'Cause I'm just down here praying
Someone hears my S.O.S

I'm drowning, now reel me in
Reel me in

Walked back along the gangway
Back to the arms of the ones I love
I guess you guys keep your secrets
Hello, hello, hello

Washed away down a water fall
I got swallowed by the undertow
I twist and turn but I know
There's only one way out of this

So if there's anybody listening
Press your ear to the radio
'Cause I'm just down here praying
Someone hears my S.O.S

Washed away down a water fall, oh
I twist and turn but I know
There's only one way out of this

So if there's anybody listening
Press your ear to the radio
'Cause I'm just down here praying
Someone hears my S.O.S

I'm drowning, now reel me in
Reel me in, reel me in

Don't listen to the TV
Don't listen to the radio

Sundowning

I found a missing puzzle piece
But I don't know, I don't know where to begin
Do I have what, what you need
To put it all back together again

The breath is in the mouth so blow this fire out
Your shell slowly climbing up the walls
Maybe we are sundowning
Maybe we're just sundowning

We torched another golden morning
You only get, only get back what you can give
Perhaps we need a little time
Little time to remember and live

With the rising of the moon
The tie-in of the afternoon
The evening takes us with it as it flows

The breath is in the mouth to blow this fire out
Your shell slowly climbing up the walls
Maybe we are sundowning
Maybe were just sundowning

Maybe we are sundowing away
But yet not drowning, just sundowning

As daylight drifts away
And everything starts to fade
And all our colors turn to black and white
Now heart don't make a sound
Feet don't you touch the ground
Could this be just a tricking of the light

The breath is in the mouth, to blow this fire out
Well, maybe I could wait another night
'Cause maybe we're just sundowning
Maybe we are sundowning

Darling we are sundowning away
But yet not drowning, just sundowning

Just sundowning, sundowning

36 hours

Maybe let the doll house burn
Maybe I can hit and run
Maybe love was flicking through a magazine
Goes away two moons agree
Starting over is for free
Maybe now I learn to taste the air I breathe

Feel the earth begin to move
Underneath my buckle shoe
Maybe this is just exactly who I am
Taxi's crawling up the hill
Take me where the world stands still
Away from where the air is frozen in your hands

Oh, 36 hours away
36 hours away
In the moonlight
36 hours away
36 hours away
And it's over

In the middle going south
Dirty hands and empty mouth
I am indicating left and pulling out
Turn the map the other way
Through the hope and misery
And tilt the wheel towards the white lights up ahead

Oh 36 hours away
36 hours away
In the moonlight
36 hours away
36 hours away
And it's over

Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
La la la la
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
La la la la

Oh 36 hours away
36 hours away
36 hours away
Oh 36 hours away
36 hours away
And it's over
And it's over

Fingertip

I wanna knock, knock down your door
Wanna steal your bicycle
Wanna rock your rocking horse
Wonder what's the time now, Mr. Wolf

And dancing in the street
With my suit and my big white teeth
And my shirt and my big white shoes
And almost nothing left to lose

In a minute, I mean it, you lose your grip
'Cause you're hanging, by a fingertip
I'm gonna huff you and puff you and shake your tree
Gonna make you, fall in love with me, yeah


This is the beat, beat, beat of my heart
It overheats every time we're apart
With the sweat dripping off my chin
Honey, you don't know the shape I'm in

Oh, struck down in the street
Staring up, up at the swings of your feet
Nobody knows the way that it is
Come on, baby, baby please

A minute, you lose your grip
'Cause you're hanging by a fingertip
And I've been waiting,
Impatient, down underneath
Just to catch you when you fall for me

I want to eat with you, sleep with you
Kiss you and listen to you
Get you what you want
Give you what you need

I want to sing to and cling to
And wait and see
Gonna make you fall in love with me

'Cause they don't know
They don't know

In a minute, a minute, you'll fall for me
In a minute, any minute, wait and see
In a minute, I mean it, you'll fall for me
In a minute, any minute now, wait and see

Do do, do do, do do, do
Do do, do do, do do, do

'Cause I've been waiting
Impatient, down underneath
Just to catch you when you fall for me

In a minute, I mean it, you lose your grip
'Cause you're only hanging on by a fingertip
I'm gonna huff you and puff you and shake your tree
Gonna make you fall in love with me
Gonna make you fall in love with me
Gonna make you, make you fall in love with me, yeah

Lost

Daylight comes in the nick of time
Shines some light into the darkest corners of her mind
All the world is, all the world is weighing down on you

Piece by piece, it all falls away
All this beauty, all this magic 'til there's nothing there
If only love was enough, I could reach you, I would reach you

I know I'm not tired of you, but maybe you got tired of me
It seems like every little thing I do makes you pull yourself away
So I'm waiting for the sun, but you only see the grey
Oh no - won't you please come on home

Oh, I've been missing you, you got lost along the way
Oh maybe you aren't lost; it's still in you some way
If only love was enough, I could reach you, I would reach you

I know I'm not tired of you, but maybe you got tired of me
It seems like every little thing I do makes you pull yourself away
So I'm waiting for the sun, but you only see the grey
Oh no - won't you please come on home

Seems like every little thing I do makes you pull yourself away
So I'm waiting for the sun, but you only see the grey
Oh no, won't you please come on home

If only love was enough, I would reach you, I could reach you

Time Moves Slow

Leaving on time
Gone to look for a place to stand
And watch the world pass by

Living on a smile
There's nothing you need to explain
Where no one knows your name
And that suits me fine

Once I was young, I was stupid
And sure of myself
The truth is the word that
Gets harder and harder to spell

Maybe tomorrow I'll wake up
And all will be well
But time moves slow

Tonight

Sleeping lay my body down
Dream a dream where everything
You lost can still be found

Escaping laying my body down
All the weight of my skin it goes
At the great unknown
It's all uneven now

Once I was hot, I was hungry
I knew I was right
It's easy to do if you're wearing
Your wounds thrown inside out

???
Stretching out back
But time moves slow

Tonight

I'm leaving for a world
Gone to look for a place to stand
And watch the pass go by

Remember, remember, you told me
You'd be always be mine
We run, we run, we run, we run
We run, we run, we run, we run

Tomorrow wake up ???
Make up my mind
But time moves slow

Tonight

California

Come with me to California
We'll lose our troubles in the sun
Let's fly away
Let's make our grand escape before we come undone
You know I've always been a dreamer
How you laugh at all my silly silly dreams
Let's fly away
Let's make our big mistake before we come undone
Before we come undone, yeah
Oh, come with me to California
Before we come undone

Remember Us

Baby don't talk, don't say anything
There's no need, to say anything
Cause lately when we talk
We just spin around
So tonight why don't we just sit and talk
Let our shadows show us what to do
What to be

And in the hush remember us…

Skin across my skin
Do you feel it burn
Darling
In this remembering
Remembering how we used to be
Oh my, how its suppose to be
And then as one we come undone
We find there's a soulful mind intertwined
And we find

That in the hush remember us…

Remember us

(Sara Bareilles)
Baby don't talk, don't say anything
No need, to say anything
Cause lately when we talk
We just spin around
So tonight just set it down

Hummingbird

Such a tiny spark, little tiny spark
But a spark it could catch
And could grow and could burn
This whole place to the ground

Such a little voice, little tiny voice
Still it's easy to hear how it someday
Could fill the whole world with sound

But you hardly breathe
'Cause you move so fast
Never looking back
Never looking back

Do you know where you're going
Do you know where you're headed
Where your sweet crooked smile is taking you
Hummingbird

She won't be denied
She won't be denied
She won't be denied
She won't be denied

There is a world out there and it's unaware
Of the whirlwind that's coming
But soon you will have
This whole place in a spin

See it's in her eyes, in those worldly eyes
She's a wonder of nature
A wonderful creature
So certain is she

Do you know where you're going?
On this journey you're making
Watch your two tiny fists are fighting for

Like a little humming bird
Hovering innocently
And flying through my window
And taking over

Taking over

She won't be denied
She won't be denied
She won't be denied
She will not be denied

Do you know where you're going

Thin Air

You know that I'm in love with you
Know I always will be
Haunted by the same dreams
Hunted by the memories

Feels like a rain cloud passing over
Looking for a place to stand
Us making rainbows
As the rain comes down

You know what I think we should do
Take a train down to the sea
Desperate times, desperate measures
Wind rushing over me

It feels like the evening coming closer
Drawing like a shawl around me
It's a beautiful sunset
Still the sun goes down, down

Tell me that you'll love me forever
And go without another word
With our hands holding tight together
Out into the new world

When you're standing on the edge of something
Tell me I was right to kill
When you know that I'm in love with you
Stepping out into the thin air

I believe in you, I believe in you
I believe in you, I believe in you
I believe in you, I believe in you

Oh, lay me down in love with you
And you know I'll always be

It feels like the evening coming closer
Draw me like a shawl around you
It's a beautiful sunset
Still the sun goes down, down

Tell me that you'll love me forever
And go without another word
With our hands holding tight together
Out into the new world

When you're standing on the edge of nothing
Tell me I was right to kill
When you know that I'm in love with you
Yeah, you know that I'm in love with you
Yeah, you know that I'm in love with you
Stepping out into the thin air

I believe again, I believe again
I believe again, I believe again
I believe again, I believe again

I believe again, I believe again
I believe again, I believe again
I believe again, I believe again

Magnetic North

You're my, you're my underscore
My kite in a thunderstorm
When you're cold I will keep you warm

You're my, you're my auto quote
Anagram of a dirty word
The best joke I ever heard
The best joke I ever will

You're my compass, my magnetic north
You keep this old ship on course
Without you it would all be lost
So I'm begging you to stay true

In our eyes is a perfect verse
Send it out through the universe
Steal a star just for the two of us

See all, all these things we've made
To contain and then out again
To put out until our middle age
To put up and along we'll go

You're my compass my magnetic north
You keep this old ship on course
Without you it would all be lost
So I'm begging you

My compass my magnetic north
You keep this old ship on course
Without you it would all be lost
So I'm begging you

To stay true

Tape 2 Tape

(Feat. Joel Compass)

Why
Feel like we've been fading out
For eons
Why
Blundering blind inside a snowstorm
Why
Forget all that battling of the sexes
Oh, Y There's just no competing with the Xs

So we go tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape
So we go tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape
(Tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape)

So we go tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape
So we go tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
Why do we keep our heads aligned
Oh, if only we could, we would rewind and rewind and rewind
But oh there's so little time
So, so, so

So we go tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape
(Tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape 2 tape)

Eggshells

(Feat. Lianne La Havas)

Big black crows, they are back here again
They're pecking at the ground, the ground, the ground
In the dead back yard

Big black crows, big tiny black eyes
How we gonna make you stay away
Stay away, stay away this time

Underneath the eggshells eggshells
Underneath the eggshells eggshells
Guess what I guess what I found
(Underneath the eggshells eggshells)
(Underneath the eggshells eggshells)
(Guess what I guess what I found)
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
(Solid ground)
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
Big black clouds
Are back here again
Just hanging around, and around, and around
Til I can't see your face no more

Underneath the eggshells eggshells
Underneath the eggshells eggshells
Guess what I guess what I found
(Underneath the eggshells eggshells)
(Underneath the eggshells eggshells)
(Guess what I guess what I found)

Underneath the eggshells
Underneath the eggshells eggshells
Guess what I guess what I found
(Underneath the eggshells eggshells)

(Guess what I guess what I found)
Solid ground
Solid ground

Oh solid ground, ground
Underneath the eggshells eggshells
Underneath the eggshells eggshells
Guess, guess what I found

Be Beautiful

A stack of old photos
Will bury me today
It didn't end well
Don't let it carry us away

Sunk down, fired up, stepping out
And burned this into something
Something, something
Oh

It's written in the skies
The covet of the Earth
It's shining in your eyes
Across the universe
We should be beautiful
We should be beautiful
So beautiful, yeah
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
Perfection is silent
And elegance is still
Beauty won't catch your eye
The way the bad shit will

Oh down, fired up, stepping out
To burn this into something
Something, something
Oh

It's written in the skies
The covet of the Earth
It's shining in your eyes
Across the universe
We should be beautiful
We should be beautiful
Isn't this beautiful
We should be beautiful
So beautiful

So let's be beautiful
Darling, I know we can be beautiful
So let's be beautiful
Yeah

It's written in the skies
The covet of the Earth
It's shining in your eyes
Across the universe

Oh darling let's be beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful
Oh

Right now, right now, right now
Before we're out of space and time

Seventeens

Look at the sky
It's been gone all day
The file can't be found
It's a permanent fail

Look at the outside
Nothing everywhere
Can't turn it off
Might not come back again

I should know you
I'm not sure that I do
I should know you
Black screen turns blue
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
Frozen
Mouth hanging open
Trying to sa-sa-s-s-s
Save you
When I erased you
I deleted myself-sel-s-s-self

Eternal spiralling circle
Endlessly spin-spin-spi
Spinning
He looks like he's winning
Maybe just buff-buff-b-b buffering

How do I feel
Black and cold like screaming
Cold in my skin
Be dimensional for you
I am still in the cloud
Still alive in your hand
Going to wipe the tears
Till the memory sticks
People, digital people
Deep as a pixel
Trying to fix you nearly took my cell

Eternal spiralling circle
Endlessly spin-spin-spi
Spinning
He looks like he's winning
Maybe just buff-buff-b-b buffering

New Low

You know
There's no road
Longer
Than the wrong road

You'll find
There's no way
Wronger
Than the wrong way

This is the lowering
This is a lowering
If you were wondering
This is a lowering
This is a new low
This is a new low
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
Rich kids
When did we turn you into
Rich kids
We didn't want to but we
Just did
Tick the timebomb
Under the
New school
Built on the weakest of the three faults
Can it be anyone but our fault
When it all falls down

This is the lowering
This is a lowering
If you were wondering
If you were wondering
This is a new low
This is a no go
This is a new low

Clean

(Feat. Sweet Billy Pilgrim)

Swim to the island
Surrounded by the tide
One half drowning
The other one alive
Oh, an awful long way to go
Oh, an awful long time ago
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
Hold for the island
The seer in the sky
Gently drowning
Your tiny yellow eyes
Oh, an awful long way to go
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, my soul
Be clean once more
My soul
Once more be clean

Even on the island
Night is gonna fall
Sunset's burning
Underneath it all
Oh, an awful long way to go
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, my soul
Be clean once more
My soul
Once more be clean
My soul
Be clean once more
My soul
Once more be clean
My soul
Once more be clean

Hearts (SpinWheelOscillate)

Gone
Is anything forever really gone
Is the sun right
And do we just forever spiral on
If the ants don't know
And the stars don't know
Then who am I to wonder

But it's always now
Yes it's always now
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robotss
Hearts resonate at 40Hz
Tremble as they twist and tear apart
SpinWheelOscillate
SpinWheelIscillate
Yesterday could surely be no better
Today could surely be no worse
SpinWheelOscillate
SpinWheelOscillate

Thought
Exactly where you think
You're thinking from?
Tip toe
Tip toe across your corpus callosum
If the birds don't care
And the gods won't share
Then who are we to worry

'Cause it's always now
Yes it's always now

Hearts resonate at 40Hz
Tremble as they twist and tear apart
SpinWheelOscillate
SpinWheelIscillate
Yesterday could surely be no better
Today could surely be no worse
SpinWheelOscillate
SpinWheelOscillate
I want to touch you
But you move so slow
I want to reach you
But you sing so low

Resonate at 40hz
It burns but we love the way it hurts
SpinWheelIOscillate
Spin
Wheel
Oscillate

Shame On Me

(feat. Josef Salvat)

I got trampstamped in Santa Monica
Shame on me
Got told off for taking a piss on Malibu beach
I am smoking in my rental shame on me
With that VIP chit chat with a lizard on heat
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
I been negging on the teenage dream, shame on me
But feeling stronger in this plastic fantasy
I've lived in fear of younger, better shame on me
I even considered early booking at the Westwood cemetery

But this is working now
Yes this is working now
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
The pressure's easing now
The weight is lifting now
Oh yeah, oh yeah

I'm on that open road
(on the road, on the road, on the road, on the road)
And there is no one in my lane
(in my lane, in my lane, in my lane, in my lane)
And I will be what I want
(what I want, what I want, what I want, what I want)
And I will do it my way
(Unashamed, unashamed, unashamed, unashamed)
I'm on that open road
And there is no one in my lane

Here I go talking trash again, shame on me
Hopefully critical but I call it jealousy
Bite the blade and get into the tub 'cause I'm always do down in the dumps
When on paper I'm pulling up trumps, yeah shame on me

But this is working now
Yes this is working now
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
The pressure's easing now
The weight is lifting now
Oh yeah, oh yeah

I'm on that open road
(on the road, on the road, on the road, on the road)
And there is no one in my lane
(in my lane, in my lane, in my lane, in my lane)
And I will be what I want
(what I want, what I want, what I want, what I want)
And I will do it my way
(Unashamed, unashamed, unashamed, unashamed)
I'm on that open road
And there is no one in my lane

Take it to the edge and ride it right in
Take it to the edge to get to the end
Take it to the edge and ride it right in
Take it to the edge to get to the end
(I'm on that open road)

I'm on that open road
And there is no one in my lane
And I will be who I want
And I will do it my way
I'm on that o-open road
And there is no one in my lane

But this is working now
Yeah this is working now
But this is working now
Yeah this is working now
But this is working now
Yeah this is working now
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Everything

I don't know how to say
I don't know how to say
I don't know how to say
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
I don't know how to say
I don't know how to say

Everything
Everything

Picking up pieces of you
Picking up signals on the line

I don't know how to say
I don't know how to say

Everything
Everything

I don't know how to say
Everything

To The Wonder

(Feat. Kina Grannis)

There's a song we sing
Elemental sound
Where it all begins
It can draw you in
Or drag you out

But it's hard to hear
That distant voice
Oh it would ring so clear
If we could only tune out the noise
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robots
To the wonder

There's a song you know
If you listen close
It will always be
As it always was (as it always was, as it always was)
Elemental sound
Running underneath it all

To the wonder
To the wonder
Into the wonder

Non Albums Tracks

All or nothing

( Brighter than sunshine EP )

It all depends on how you look at things
It all depends on what the day might bring
The problem is i never really know what way is up

'Cause i could turn around another way
Could turn it into something that would make me stay
(ah yeah)

You've took the best days i've ever known
Just the best days or so i'm told
But then again perhaps its just like any other day
(other day)

I tried to run i wanna stand and stare
I wanna take you with me wanna leave you there

I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing
I wanna push you away
Wanna beg you'll stay
I don't know what i want
I don't know what i want...
No.

Have you ever lost yourself in the feeling
Have you ever felt yourself feeling weak
I find myself and realise i don't know where i am

My heart is racing as i look around
I'm scared of staying up but i don't wanna come down

I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing
I want to push you away
I want to beg you'll stay
I don't know what i want
I don't know what i want

Why don't you leave me alone
Why don't you leave me alone
I want it all...

I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing...
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Why don't you leave me alone
Why don't you leave me alone
I want it all or nothing
I want it all or nothing

Baby goodbye

Only when i close the door
Only when i turn the key
Only then i really know
Ooh

Love walked out a long time ago
Without a warning
Left me here with you alone

Holding out my empty hand
Spelling out my empty words
Pouring out my empty heart
Ooh

All this time wondering why
My kisses made you cry
Oh i never realized
You could see it in my eyes

Love is blind
Unkind
And always gets its way
And love wont spare
Us joy
Or consequence or pain

And love wont wait for me
To work out how to save

Should've done this differently
Would have seen love slip away
Could have made it stay a while

But love walked out a long time ago
Without warning
Oh i never realized
You could see it in my eyes

Yeah yeahhhhhhhhhh

This love wont wait for me
To work out how to save

Goodbye
Baby goodbye
Goodbye
Baby goodbye
Goodbye

Baby goodbye

Spelling out my empty words
Pouring out my empty heart

Goodbye
Baby goodbye

Cold

( Aqualung & Lucy Schwartz - Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" OST )

God and his priests and his kings
All were waiting
All will wait
As they go over

Held between heaven and hell
As they're dancing
As they dance over and over
Over

Cold
Cold

Crimson and bare as I stand
Yours completely
Yours, as we go over
Sing for the lion and lamb
Their hearts are haunting
Still hearts hold ever and ever
Ever
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Cold
Cold

God and His priests and His kings
Turn their faces
Even they feel the cold

What you are given
Can't be forgotten
And never forsaken

What you are given
Can't be forgotten
And never forsaken

Cold
Cold

Over

( Brighter than sunshine EP )

Don't say its not over
When you know it isn't true
You know its a useless thing to do

This must be love
Theres no overseen calamity
No accindental tradgedy

Get off me
Get off me oh, your breaking my heart
Get off me girl you know you are

I knew, this would, happen
I saw it coming miles away
I couldn't get out of the way

So she kisses me, and she thinks shes seeing tears in my eyes,
Thinks i'm trying not to cry

Get off me
Get off me oh your breaking my heart
Get off me girl you know you are

Don't touch me oh i don't need anybody
Get of me girl...girl...girl...girl,girl

Don't you say you love me
When you know it isn't true
You know its a useless thing to...do
