Harbouring a love of synthesizers and vintage drum machines, Brooklyn trio Au Revoir Simone made their UK debut with the release of mini album, 'Verses of Comfort, Assurance and Salvation', on Moshi Moshi Records on October 31st. Offering up a generous helping of charm and intelligence, 'Verses...' is a lesson for us all in what expertly layered synths, ethereal, heart felt and heart-rendering vocals, dreamy melodies, and palpitating drum machine-induced disco beats should sound like when properly woven together. Au Revoir Simone started life in the Fall of 2003 when Erika (Forster, keyboards & vocals) and Annie (Hart, keyboards & vocals) first became acquainted on a long train ride home to NYC from a weekend getaway with friends. Along the way they exchanged stories and ambitions, and discovered that they shared a common desire to form an all-keyboard band. When they returned to NY, they started meeting regularly to play music.

After a time their friend Heather (D'Angelo, drum machines, keyboard & vocals) started joining in at these informal bedroom band practices, which also included former member Sung Bin Park (keyboard & vocals). Before too long, they started playing shows around NYC and Brooklyn. In January of 2005, Sun Bin left the band and the girls started anew as a trio. Keyboards found their natural home in the hands of Au Revoir Simone (or perhaps it was the other way round). A romantic notion it may be, but fate you might say had had a hand in their meeting Ė born out of a common love of synths then, Au Revoir Simone came to be. The band's influences could be likened to a dutifully mined musical thrift store. Alongside the racks and railings of sometimes mismatched but wholly treasured records occupied by Modest Mouse, Stereolab, Mountain Goats, Louis Prima and Pavement, the likes of the Beach Boys, Bjork, Broadcast Belle & Sebastian, Bowie, the Beegees and Billie Holiday also take their place. Erika too harbours a love of German label Morr, specifically artists such as Guther, Lali Puna and Ms. John Soda.

Made principally using keyboards, drum machines and hand percussion, Au Revoir Simone's sound is defined by their instrumentation. In their own words, and to put it simply, they make "warm and organic electronic music with forthright female vocalists". This, the band's debut, was named after a tiny book Annie received in the post one day at work entitled 'Verses of Comfort, Assurance and Salvation'. The title seemed to capture perfectly music's ability to make you feel, but more specifically how the band's music was making Annie and the rest of the girls feel Ė complete, inspired, and happy. Recorded in Brooklyn, in their friend/producer/manager Rod's basement apartment (to be more precise in fact, recorded in a former shower stall rigged up with quilts and fancy microphones to resemble a vocal booth), 'Verses..' was a lot of fun to make. Au Revoir Simone's music would be the perfect soundtrack to an Autumnal picnic in the park..or Virgin Suicides if Air had not been so triumphant with the original score.

Verses of comfort, assurance and salvation

Through The Backyards Of Our Neighbors

Baby tell me please
Is this a dream
Spending the night with you
Beneath the cherry trees
Just make a wish and everything comes true

Out the windows of my bedroom
Through the backyards of our neighbors
But I didn't leave you waiting
There was endless concentration

Then the moon swept down to greet us
It was warm and made of flowers
Into vines that barely reached us
Climbing higher than forever

Baby help me please
In knowing this
'Cause showing never tells
Was it just a breeze
Was it a kiss
Breathless exquisite chills

Hurricanes

In a world of make-believe
Talks a lot, but can't you see
It means more to you than me
Than me

Think before you speculate
Take the fear that you create
Don't assume we're so afraid of them

And you say
Na na na na...
Na na na na...

If you stop and disappear
Doesn't sound I watch you here
When dreaming takes you when you want to be
Don't follow the status quo
Picture where you'd like to go
Take your time but always know you're there

And you say
Na na na na...
Na na na na...
Na na na na...

This message is for all the people
That people who are always waiting
This message is for all the people
That people who are always waiting
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

This message is for all the people
That people who are always waiting
This message is for all the people
That people who are always waiting
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

This message is for all the people
That people who are always waiting
This message is for all the people
That people who are always waiting
Waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

The Disco Song

There's a bad reason
She just can't stay home anymore
Expectations rising
Life's too short
It's too clichť

And you say, and you say
And you say, and you say
And you say, and you say
And you say, and you say

She knows when things are happening
Into the night, she's lost again
It's like no other feeling she says
"Here I am to save the day"

Wishing for the time of my life, she says
Wishing for the time of my life
Wishing for the time of my life, she says
Wishing for the time of my life
Wishing for the time of my life, she says
Wishing for the time of my life
Wishing for the time of my life, she says
Wishing for the time of my life

And you say, and you say
And you say, and you say
And you say

Where You Go

I see you out sometimes by coincidence
Been reading about you, I know where you've been
You don't know how much I liked you and I think of you
So much to tell you, to fill you in

Where you go
Is where I want to be
Wherever you go
Is where I want to be

I wonder if it's right to call you a friend
I remember your eyes, they made me way too late
Now if I'm standing at a party waiting for the train
I know you're out there, can't wait till we meet again

Where you go
Is where I want to be
Wherever you go
Is where I want to be

Where you go
Is where I want to be
Wherever you go
Is where I want you to lead me
To lead me

So much to tell you
I have to find you
It's time I see you
I wish we were alone
And it was late at night
I met you at a party
It was a crowded room
I couldn't hear you talking
You tried to hold my hand
And then you left without me
But don't you know that where you go
Is where I want to be

Back In Time

Do you think (When you know you know it)
If we could go back in time (When you know you know it)
Do you think (Listen now, listen now)
That I'd like you then (I will look for you there)

Would you try (when you see, you see it)
Not to be so mean (when you see, you see it)
And we'd ne- (Won't be long, it won't be long)
-ver just be friends (I will wait for you there)

Do you think (When you know you know it)
If we could go back in time (When you know you know it)
Do you think (Listen now, listen now)
That I liked you there (I will look for you there)

Won't you try (when you see, you see it)
Not to be so mean (when you see, you see it)
And we're now (Won't be long, it won't be long)
For just be friends (I will wait for you there)

There are times that I
Felt that this was right
There are times that I
Felt that this was right

Why do you think
This will never work
Why do you think
This will never work

There are times that I
Felt that this was right
There are times that I
Felt that this was right

Why do you think
This will never work
Why do you think
This will never work

And Sleep Al Mar

Teenager mexican boy
Don't be shy
Cause I could listen to Spanish all night

El dulce aroma de ron
On your breath
Acercate a mi
Come closer

Teenager mexican boy
Don't be shy
Cause I could listen to Spanish all night

El dulce aroma de ron
On your breath
Acercate a mi
Come closer

Siempre me acordare

Stay Golden

I saw it coming
I just thought that you should know
I'm feeling better every day
I'm only waiting if you stay
So don't feel bad
Your faith was an illusion
And you're as loyal as your faith
Will let you be

Your expectation
It's not hard to live without
I'm feeling better every day
And emptiness still leaves a space
So don't feel bad
You lost all your emotion
And may you find all your relations
Will keep you free

A careless bird is complicated
An empty nest still leaves a space

The Bird of music

*** Thanx a lot to Aino for these lyrics ***

The Lucky One

A dream of togetherness
Turned into a brighter mess
A faint sigh my spoken best
Now, now

Make way for the simple hours
No finding the time itís ours
A fate or it's a desire
I know

So I was the lucky one
Reading letters, not writing them
Taking pictures of anyone
I know

So let the sun shine
So let the sun shine
So let the sun shine
Let it come
To show us that tomorrow is eventual
We know it when the day is done

So let the sun shine
So let the sun shine
So let the sun shine
Let it come
To show us that tomorrow is eventual
We know it when the day is done

So let the sun shine
So let the sun shine
So let the sun shine
Let it come
To show us that tomorrow is eventual
We know it when the day is done


Sad song

Play me a sad song
'Cause thatís what I want to hear
I want you to make me cry
I want to remember the places that we left
Lost to the mists of time

I know that youíll go soon
Youíll find out so take me with you always
I know that youíll go soon
Youíll find out so take me with you always

On buses that move through the night
We sleep on and on
We got off at Memphis
Black-top heat will make us thirsty
Weíll never get sick anymore

I know that youíll go soon
Youíll find out so take me with you always
I know that youíll go soon
Youíll find out so take me with you always

Play me a sad song
'Cause thatís what I want to hear
I want you to make me cry
I want to remember the places that we left
Lost to the mists of time

Fallen Snow

We both know it's going to be another long winter
The kind that freezes shut the doors of early spring
But I'll still let you in
When I hear you knocking, with a whisper
I'll open the doors and I'll let you in

Depressing things are empty beds and lonely dinners
And women who are middle aged with naked fingers
I'll buy myself a ring
To symbolize this marriage every time I break the locks to let you in

Cause nothing's worse than seeing you worse than me
And nothing hurts like seeing you hurt like me
The consequence is less than the happiness you bring to me
There's more to give than what you take from me

Cause nothing's worse than seeing you worse than me
And nothing hurts like seeing you hurt like me
The consequence is less than the happiness you bring to me
There's more to give than what you take from me

Believe in the things that you know
Believe in the things that you know

Sunshine, throw a starving man a piece of bread

All I said, I didn't mean
The chill is strong and nothing seems
To thaw the icy sentiment
Of love that's gone once winter's spent

All I said, I didn't mean
The chill is strong and nothing seems
To thaw the icy sentiment
Of love that's gone once winter's spent

I Couldn't Sleep

I couldn't sleep
Didn't want comforting
Just company to sleep

And then in dreams we meet
And stay asleep

I awoke feeling restless
Didn't know quite where I was
Though I felt far away and cold
It was so late but my mind was curious
It was quiet, snowing with frosted windows
I had a book but wasn't reading just watching you

Didn't want comforting
Just company, oh be sweet
It could go either way
Based on what they say

I didn't wish to be somewhere else
Your face was comforting to me
I don't remember you smiling
But just the same
I didn't know you
You didn't know what to make of me
It was peaceful that night
A kind of friendship all too serious

(A Violent Yet) Flammable World

Oceans shape the sides
Touching down in the spaces
Soaking from a warm goodbye
An early rise offers kindly

Tonight I sleep to dream
Of a place that's calling me
It is always just a dream
Still I cannot forget what I have seen
The crowd's hard to believe
At their faces I'm looking
But your feet I'm following
In soft steps on a path the way you lead

I don't want to lose myself
It's a whisper
It's a funny thing
We fold like icicles on paper shelves
It's a pity to appear this way

You're flying when your foreign eyes
Trace the heights of the city

Steaming
With rocks and clouds we breathe
Violent skies
A shock to my own body
Speech is wild
Alive sacred and sounding
Wild
From across and beyond, oh far beyond

I don't want to lose myself
It's a whisper
It's a funny thing
We fold like icicles on paper shelves
It's a pity to appear this way

Hold, hold, hold on
I swear I saw it somewhere
Waving, wading, one, two, three, above the wakes that follow
Hold, hold, hold on
I swear I saw it somewhere
Waving, wading, one, two, three, above the wakes that follow

I don't want to lose myself
Tonight I sleep to dream of a place that's calling me
It's a whisper
It is always just a dream
It's a funny thing
Still I cannot forget what I have seen
We fold like icicles on paper shelves
With rocks and clouds we breathe, a shock to my own body
It's a pity
Alive sacred and sounding
To appear this way
From across and beyond, oh far beyond

Don't See the Sorrow

Don't see the sorrow
Don't let it creep up through your skin
Cause I read somewhere
That what you like you'll find again
You'll find it again

I'm on the edge
Of not wanting to feel this way anymore
But I will still try to learn my lessons
There's no mistakes anyway
I know that
Know that

So you
Why won't you make room
Some room for me
You
Why won't you make room
Some room

I see myself in you
I seem to know my own death too
But here on a day this clear
It's as good a day
To begin
To begin

So you
Why won't you make room
Some room for me
You
Why won't you make room
Some room for me
You
Why won't you make room
Some room for me
You
Why won't you make room
Some room

Dark Halls

When we got to Boston
There was a TV in the room
You were glowing
Purple, green, red, black and blue
And the light
In the night
Slammed the door

And when we went downtown
All the babies laughed, clapped at our jokes
And when the doctor
Called it off you ran straight through the snow
Shut your eyes to see
But you didn't see me

Down in the dark halls
We knew that the stark walls said it all
And for the first time
I found the lines to a childhood memory:
"We have a choice
To breathe
And it's gonna be me"

And you may think you lost it
Take away
Yes you may think you lost it
Don't even wonder anymore
Erase your mind, turn round and slowly walk away
Slam the door

And you may think you lost it
Take away
Yes you may think you lost it
Don't even wonder anymore
Erase your mind, turn round and slowly walk away
Slam the door

Night Majestic

We want to celebrate
And there's a place that we go
Where the horses are for show
And they race for a prize at the end of the line and it impresses us
We've got to set a date
To meet the glory at the tracks
And it'll keep us coming back
With a vengeance and a sense of belonging to a long-coming victory

Night's rounding round the bend
Cause he's the hero of the day
Not like your boring thoroughbred
He's a mix of a Chilean workhorse and a pony from the circus
But this Night is winning blue
This night of balmy summer breeze
This night that makes us all believe
Congratulations to our dark horse candidate who didn't seem to have chance

When the bets are hedged itís too soon to see
If you lose your chance you can take it from me
Cause winning luck comes so easily
When the stakes are high there's more reason to believe

We want to celebrate
And there's a place that we go
Where the horses are for show
And they race for a prize at the end of the line and it impresses us
There's a blue ribbon at the end of the line
There's a blue ribbon at the end of the line
There's a blue ribbon at the end of the line

Stars

And since we met I simply cannot forget
You are on my mind
Yeah since the day we met
I think I haven't slept
More than an hour at a time

You make wanna measure stars in the backyard with a calculator and a ruler baby
I found a letter that describes how the moonlight will lead me to the distant place that you will be

I don't know how but there's a power
For now, it conveys a subtle mystery
And from my house
As I look out
The stars align

You make wanna measure stars in the backyard with a calculator and a ruler baby
I found a letter that describes how the moonlight will lead me to the distant place that you will be

The open sky
Is mine tonight
It gives a sign
Of what I'll find

The open sky
Is mine tonight
It gives a sign
Of what I'll find

You make wanna measure stars in the backyard with a calculator and a ruler baby
I found a letter that describes how the moonlight will lead me to the distant place that you will be
You make wanna measure stars in the backyard with a calculator and a ruler baby
I found a letter that describes how the moonlight will lead me to the distant place that you will be

Lark

So
So long
So long ago
There wasn't anyone out there I thought I needed to know
But no more
When I find the day leave my mind in the evening just as the day before

I saw the window was open
The cool air
I don't know what you saw there
Don't know what you saw in me
Sometimes I want to be enough for you
Don't ask
Know that it's understood
There's not enough of me

I saw that something was broken
I've crossed the line
I'll point you to a better time
A safer place to be
Sometimes I want to be enough for you
Don't ask
Know that it's done no good

Sometimes I want to be enough for you
Don't ask
Know that it's done no good

The Way to There

The snow is white enough
And the night is black enough
It makes it seem innocent
It makes it seem innocent

The wind is making you
And the cold is making you
It makes it seem innocent
It makes it seem innocent

If you feel
Compelled towards me
Then it's just gravity
The seconds
Stretch to days
Because time was
Made that way

Dark nights are moving fast
Becoming moments past
While the air is thin
Daring, while you still can

If you feel
Compelled towards me
Then it's just gravity
The seconds
Stretch to days
Because time was
Made that way

From every point in space
We've come to this place
So how can it not be fate
When we were made this way

Still Night, Still Light

Another likely story

Don't tell me
It's another likely story
Could've pinned it on you from the start
Well Iím new here
Doesn't mean I have to answer
Silly questions or a shot in the dark

You know Iím a child
I keep this alive

It gets harder
I remember to remember
Waking up again all over again
If there's an echo
Repeat days Iíd likely let go
And be the changes we are noticing

When we're running wild
We keep this alive

Still i wonder
Sights around us fade and underneath
The ground shakes, things fall apart
And no other than the voice of one another
Keeps us safely moving on in the dark

You know Iím a child
I keep this alive

Shadows

You tell me
That itís getting better
But every time that we say goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight

I'm haunted by your eyes
And how long they've been crying

Don't tell me
About a bad reaction
Don't tell me that you plan to hide
To hide, to hide
Reasoning aside

I'm moving on
I hope you're coming with me
I hope you're coming with me

Anyone can answer their own questions
All you have to do is look inside
Inside, inside
You know it inside
You know it will be alright
Alright, alright
You know it's alright

I'm moving on
I hope you're coming with me
Cause Iím not strong
Without you

Don't blame it on
Your shadows

Cause I know all
About you

All or nothing

Everywhere is somewhere, baby
So can't you see we're in the middle of somewhere
Nowhere just means knowing nothing of
Where you've been or where you're going feels farther
You're a sight to see this early
Morning getting lost in my own neighbourhood

The same freedom you feel
Is what's been blowing in my sail
Since I arrived here

It's all, all, all, all
It's all, all, all, all
It's all or nothing

It's all, all, all, all
It's all, all, all, all
It's all or nothing

Slowly coming into view
The images are slowly
Slowly coming into view
The images are slowly

Finding out for once I know
There's less to life
What's more is looking for me

Saying yes instead of no
Not wondering what might come my direction

Won't be long, best just to gaze
And daze and fall to dream something familiar

It's all, all, all, all
It's all, all, all, all
It's all or nothing

It's all, all, all, all
It's all, all, all, all
It's all or nothing

Knight of wands

Oh, joy, I can see you
Oh, joy, I can see you
It's all I want
It's all I want

Oh, joy, I can see you
Oh, joy, I can see you
It's all I want
It's all I want...

When there's no one else to blame
And there's nothing left to say
Seeing changes everything
We can realize anything

The last one

Before you ask me again
You better think it over
Is this what you wanted in life
I'm the last one

I know you think that you know me
'Cause it's been a long time
I don't ask any questions
When you tell me that Iím the last one

I'm the one to forget
The one you won't regret
I'm the one to forget
The one you won't regret

So let me, let me go
'Cause you don't
And you'll never know

If you can't tell the real from the imaginary
It will seem surprising when i disappear
Like the last one

I'm the one to forget
The one you won't regret
I'm the one to forget
The one you won't regret

So let me, let me go
'Cause you don't
And you'll never know

So let me, let me go
'Cause you don't
And you'll never know

Trace a line

Trace a line
Down my arm
Trace a line
Down

You'll be the end of me
You'll be the end of me

No one's here
And nothing's new
Trace a line
From me to you

You'll be the end of me
You'll be the end of me

Getting drunk in taxicabs
And writing names on backs of hands
And figuring how to get to you

We're making room for alibis
When something tells me telling lies
Is only ever trying to be true
Will we never ever learn
That things could go from bad to worse
And worst of all we'd love it if they did

Knowing what you said to me
Beneath your breath so blatantly
Be careful now
We're camping in the corner of the room

You'll be the end of me
You'll be the end of me

Only you can make you happy

Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh

Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh
Only you can make you happy, oh
(la la la la la la la la)
Only you can make you happy, oh
(la la la la la la la la)

Take me as I am

Do you know when you were already born
Do you know this is the way it would be
Do you know when you were already born
You were already you and i already me

So take me as i am
Take me as i am

I know
It's easier said than done
But we've talked a million hours
To end up just where we begun
In this time we're passing
With these distractions
We could be having fun

So take me as I am
Take me as I am
Forget your plans

Do you know when you were already born
Do you know this is the way it would be
Do you know when you were already born
You were already you and I already me

So take me as I am
Take me as I am
Forget your plans

Anywhere you looked

What would you say was the matter
When we all laughed at each other
When we all cried together
I was right

If we could all say we're sorry
Give up all awkward tomorrows
Finding nothing more to argue
I was right

Anywhere you looked was
Anywhere you looked was
Anywhere you looked was
Anywhere you looked was
Anywhere you looked was
Anywhere you looked was right

Anything you said to me was lost in ether overseas
And timing changes everything when I was right
We discovered one another stumbling through another summer
Worrying we start to wonder, what was right

Anywhere your luck was
Anywhere your luck was
Anywhere your luck was
Anywhere your luck was
Anywhere your luck was
Anywhere your luck was right

Anywhere you wanted to be someone else was talking to me
Wave lengths pull magnetically and i was right
And we knew when we tried harder there would be another offer
Knowing, as we're falling under, what was right

Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once was right

Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once
Anyone you've loved once was right

Organized scenery

Trees grew leaves in the weeks I was gone
No response when the neighbours came to call
And you wouldn't want it any other way
We know everything changed

Remember
Sometimes summer wears away
When we want to see the sky
When you look down
You'll see, you'll find

In the warmth of the winter we cried out
"take what's left of your time and decide"
And you wouldn't look beyond the other way
We know everything changed

See how we watch the world go by when we wander
We even let all our plants die, don't think about them
Oh seeking can be so time consuming

Trees grew leaves in the weeks i was gone
Hands turn keys to the locks in the door
And we wouldn't want it any other way
We know everything changed

We are here

The way things should be
Became all that I could see
But I could've never imagined that kiss
Love is this

And now what we know
Shows us what we've always known

I want to know you and hold you always
Won't you stay
The longer I was left alone
Helped me to find my sense of home
And missing your familiar ways
At night, i memorized your face
We've spent a long time waiting for
The chance to say
"We are here"
"We are here"

I found it unexpectedly
The luck that you should notice me
But wanting makes it hard to find
Differences between wrong and right
We've spent a long time waiting for
The chance to say
"We are here"
"We are here"
"We are here"
"We are here"
"We are here"
"We are here"

Tell me

Places exist
Just when we need them
And times like this
Just when we need them
I never noticed before
Seems that i was waiting for
If we ignore all the signs
Doesn't mean there won't be more
Things are far out
Electric is the air
And farther out
There's magic everywhere
If we can see
Everything that we could be noticing
And really see we can wake
From the scenes we're all dreaming

More Than

It's a long time coming
A long time gone away
When the lights go down, don't stop
No one stays the same

Feel the waves that pull us under
The waiting wild inside
You're too good at being patient
In the right light, I've got nothing to hide
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are
More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are

More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are
More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are

I don't care where we're going
I feel so far away
In the backseat silver motion
We accelerate

The others drive in circles
They give in and feel ashamed
And if they find us out now
Better that way

More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are
More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are

More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are
More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are

More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are
More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are

More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are
More than what you are you are
Tell me what you want tell me what you are

The Lead Is Galloping

I want it all to bring things up
I tried it all to gauge what's wrong with me
The tired eyes that shielded us
Took all my weakness to extremes

Nobody put your hands up to say you know
The lead is galloping up, behind, so close

Too much time to make things up
And analyze the motions carefully
Till the waves are washing over
I capsize and feel the drunken sea
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Nobody put your hands up to say you know
The lead is galloping up, behind, so close
Nobody put your hands up to say you know
The lead is galloping up, behind, so close

Nobody put your hands up to say you know
The lead is galloping up, behind, so close
Nobody put your hands up to say you know
The lead is galloping up, behind, so close

Crazy

Every time I walked away I though that it was done
And every try I made became the one I counted on
You knew me when I loved to lose and to lose again
Seems we're either giving up or giving in

But, ooh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy

Breaking bones that you tried to bend
Cry, cry, unforgiven
Some people think they know
Sometimes I think they know
Hey, hey, it's not that simple

Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy

So let's take another road
Let's take another road
Let's take another road
Let's take another road

Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy
Oh, you girls you drive me crazy

We Both Know

We both know you've been looking around
It's a lot to say, it's a lot to say, I know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We both know you've been looking around
Don't tell me why, don't tell me why, I know

Just Like A Tree

Just like a tree, roots are winding
But I didn't know what she wanted

Stay away from me
Stay away from me

She always wanted to be unbounded
But you can't shake off the shape that you're born in
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Stay away from me
Stay away from me
Stay away from me
Stay away from me

Somebody Who

Can't stay awake, I wonder how long I can fake it
Outside I wait, I feel my body hesitating
Can't find a little more time, this world knows how to take it
Don't even know but I need somebody else to break this

Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who

You're saying one thing but I just can't see the vision
Not sitting right with the impression that you're giving
Sometimes I wish the night could show me what I'm missing
Hands tied, just act natural, I want
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who

Take me over, turn me on
I can't stop, it's what I want
Take me over, turn me on
I can't stop, it's what I want

Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who
Somebody who can stay awake I need somebody who

Gravitron

Well I'm not the person when you've had enough
And I'm not the one to make you stop
These lines unbroken, they bring me down and up
Or I might have spoken all this up

Such a high that won't come down
Such a high that won't come down
Such a high that won't come down
Such a high that won't come down

It's night vibration to be desirous
Realize temptation has chosen us
If we pound on pavement and think it's bad enough
To live a life uncertain, can be tough
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Such a high that won't come down
Such a high that won't come down
Such a high that won't come down
Such a high that won't come down

Boiling Point

I don't want to see it through
I don't have the heart to fight
Lower the flame or try to raise the boiling point

Hide away from here
Hide away from here
Take me to another place
Take me to another place

So hard to be with you
Always the same to strike, or fight, or fire
Forever ash to flame
No risk before it cools down
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hide away from here
Hide away from here
Take me to another place
Take me to another place

Love, You Don't Know Me

Love, you don't know me
Love, you don't know me

Love, you don't know me
Love, you don't know me

Love, you don't know me
Love, you don't know me

Love, you don't know me
Love, you don't know me

Love, you don't know me
Love, you don't know me

Love, you don't know me
Love, you don't know me

Hand Over Hand

Steady mistake under steady eye
What would you say if I start asking you once on awhile
Hand over hand matching form to force
Measure the strength I know mine, and yours

I'm only seeking you know
Time will tell if I should wait for it or move through
To meet the palm to the ground
Finding I'm wanting to take more of it
I wonder where you, where you, where you are
I wonder where you, where you, where you are
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If pleasure it came, crowned in victory
Washes away all of the words that you make too hard
So what if the same vision overtakes
Heart like a wheel, lighting closer

I'm only seeking you now
Time will tell if I should wait for it or move through
To meet the palm to the ground
Finding I'm wanting to take more of it
I wonder where you, where you, where you are
I wonder where you, where you, where you are

Let The Night Win

Is it over
I'm still in love with you
Can't help stand in your way

Say you wanna let someone new in
Don't tell me till the morning
I'm still in love with you

Can't we let the night win
Can't we let the night win

So it's over
I'm still in love with you
Come down I'll stand in your way
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Say you wanna let someone new in
Don't tell me till the morning
I'll stand in your way

Can't we let the night win
Can't we let the night win
Can't we let the night win
Can't we let the night win

Fade Into You

( Mazzy Star Cover / Live )

I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth

You live your life, you go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Oh! You Pretty Things

(David Bowie cover / Life Beyond Mars: Bowie Covered LP)

Wake up you sleepyhead
Put on some clothes, shake up your bed
Put another log on the fire for me
I've made some breakfast and coffee
I look out my window what do I see
A crack in the sky and a hand reaching down to me
All the nightmares came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

What are we coming to
No room for me, no fun for you
I think about a world to come
Where the books were found by the golden ones
Written in pain, written in awe
By a puzzled man who questioned
What we work here for
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and papas insane
Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and papas insane
Let me make it plain
You gotta make way for the homo superior

Look out at your children
See their faces in golden rays
Don't kid yourself, they belong to you
They're the start of a coming race
The earth is a bitch
We've finished our news
Homo sapiens have outgrown their use
All the strangers came today
And it looks as though they're here to stay

Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and papas insane
Oh you pretty things
Don't you know you're driving your
Mamas and papas insane
Let me make it plain
You gotta make way for the homo superior

Paris

(Friendly Fires / Aeroplane Remix feat. Au Revoir Simone)

One day we're gonna live in Paris
I promise
I'm on it
When I'm bringing in the money
I promise
I'm on it

And I'm gonna take you out to club showcase
We're gonna live it up
I promise
Just hold on a little more

And every night
We'll watch the stars
They'll be out for us
They'll be out for us
And every night
The city lights
They'll be out for us
They'll be out for us

One day we're gonna live in Paris
I promise
I'm on it
I'll find you that French boy
You'll find me that French girl
I promise
I'm on it

So go and pack your bags
For the long haul
We're gonna lose ourselves
I promise
This time it's you and me for evermore

And every night
We'll watch the stars
They'll be out for us
They'll be out for us
And every night
The city lights
They'll be out for us
They'll be out for us

Who Am I Now

( With Air )

What do I know, where should I go
Telling me things that I can't see

Who am I now, je suis enfant
Who am I now, il y a longtemps
The light and the chills, fermer les cils
Open your ears, listening leaves

Distance device, crossing the line
Taken in kind, rÍves jour et soir
Lost in a maze, je restais lŗ
Transforming views, l'esprit confus

Who am I now, je suis enfant
Who am I now, il y a longtemps
The light and the chills, fermer les cils
Open your ears, listening leaves

Who am I now, je suis enfant
Who am I now, il y a longtemps
The light and the chills, fermer les cils
Open your ears, listening leaves
