Beach House are a duo 'not a couple, as they often point out' from Baltimore. Built on the vocals and organ of Victoria Legrand and the atmospheric slide-guitar of Alex Scally, they wear frequent comparisons to Nico and Mazzy Star, and are heavily influenced by Neil Young and the films of David Lynch. Their music is slow, droney, dreamlike, and narcotic. "That's very much what the 'Beach House' feel is: going off to a different world," Scally explained, in 2008. "It's not really a vacation; vacation for me is when you go away, but you're still thinking about all the things you've left behind." Much of the response to their music, Legrand believes, comes from the name. "People immediately think: 'lying in the cabana,'" she told The Village Voice. "Smoking opium. Listening to Galaxie 500. Spiritualized. I know that there's drug references and things like that, but when we write we're definitely not succumbing to the influence of drugs or imagining that at all."

Legrand was born into an artistic family, as the daughter of a painter, and the niece of French composer Michel Legrand and singer Christine Legrand. The Beach House vocalist was born in Paris, raised in Philadelphia, and returned to the city of her birth to study acting at the International Theatre School Of Jacques Lecoq in Paris. "I've been performing all my life in theatres, so it's very natural for me to be in front of people, on stage," Legrand recalled, in a 2008 interview with me, of her theatrical background. "Every time we play, I try and use all those performative things that're ingrained in me. I think the minute you're on stage, you're performing." On graduation, Legrand moved to Baltimore, in part because of "cheap rent," but also impelled by "a weird gut feeling," she told The Age. Six months after moving there, in 2004, she met Scally, and the two quickly started "hanging out all the time," eventually leading to a musical collaboration. "Everything about it was easy and was very natural,' Legrand recounted in 2008. "It was just like two friends being around one another and talking about music and loving music and loving organs and loving pianos and loving four-tracks, and this kind of intense baby was born. We were two people who had very similar colors in their minds."

Scally was a Baltimore native who had grown up playing bass guitar, studied Geology at University, and eventually found employment as a carpenter. Before Beach House, Scally was never a guitarist. "It's been great because I was never taught on that instrument," he told Owl and Bear, "so I've been able to play exactly how I want and not have preconceived notions about what the guitar's role is." Beach House started out life as a recording project. Yet, rather than using multi-tracking to build 'grand' songs, they stuck to the simplicity of their set-up: organ, programmed drums, slide guitar. "It's a way to challenge ourselves: What do you do when it's just the two of you?" Legrand said, to Pitchfork. Offered Scally: "One of the reasons this has been such a fulfilling experience for me is that with two people, it's so much easier to achieve things that feel exciting and new." After a year as a recording project, Beach House began playing around Baltimore, and recorded their 2006 self-titled debut in the space of two days. Though made without a label, the band were soon signed by Carpark Records. Beach House soon became a 'blog band,' the internet's embrace symbolized by the ever-influential Pitchfork, whoawarded the band their 'best new music' tag and scored Beach House an 8.1. "We know we're an internet band," Scally has offered. "That's how we've always been: real small, but with really devoted fans."

In 2008, Beach House released their second album, Devotion, a more dynamic set whose songs were, Scally claimed, "incredibly high in intensity," born of bottled-up emotions from touring and increased creative tensions between the two. The album found more critical love, and the band's fanbase continued to grow, aided by tours with Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear. In 2009, Beach House signed to Sub Pop Records, and the first fruits of that union were 2010's impressive Teen Dream. The album's title, Legrand explained, "described the feeling that [they] had [making it]: youthful and obsessed, completely inspired by everything in this overwhelming, irrational, passionate way." Recorded in a converted church in upstate New York, the album summoned a sense of grandeur beyond the hazy mood music of the band's first two records, and was summarily received with critical rapture; named album of the year by Gorilla vs. Bear and in the Top 10 by Pitchfork, Time, Billboard, Stereogum, and the NME.

In 2012, the duo returned with Bloom, an LP that reaffirmed Beach House's status as a important indie band and critical darlings.

Beach House

Saltwater

Love you all the time
Even though you're not mine
Love you all the time
Dreaming in the saltwater

Timing's gone all bad
Broken thing and a broken wing
You couldn't lose me if you tried
'Cause I'll be rolling to your side, baby

Love you all the time
Even though you're not mine
Love you all the time
Broken thing and a broken wing

You couldn't lose me if you tried

Tokyo Witch

In a dark winter Tokyo
In the Mah-jong water he wait
Severed past drumming through his hands
Glory comes to the one who waits

In the hallways they're lying there
In the red blossom of the gaze
In your arms there is nothing left
We are all on the wait

My whole life
Is a mystery
That I can't break

Oh wings
That are Calvary
Upon this day
I would love to heal you now

In a dark winter Tokyo
In the Mah-jong waters they wait
Severed past sweeping through their hands
Glory comes to the ones that wait

In the heart of the young
Red blossom of the day

All I wanted to see is that I am better
All I want to believe is that I am better
Round and round
All I want you to see is that I am better
Round and round

Apple Orchard

One, two, three, four

You only give me what you don't want no more
Ask the questions that you don't know at all

Let's lie down for a while
You can't smile
Lay your head in the old
Old fashion

You know how it is, my friend
In the boxes of those picture frames
Hold your inside 'cause you're cold at night
Warm your heart, love 'cause you're by my side

Let's lie down for a while
You can't smile
Lay your head in the old
Old fashion

Lay your head in the apple orchard
Take your time, you can settle down
Hold your breath 'cause you, you'll get no breathe (?)
Hold your head on the hollow one (?)

Master Of None

You always go to the parties
To pluck the feathers off all the birds
On your knees
I will not beg you please

I want your picture but not your words
You know they want it, but there's no first
On your own
You cannot catch your home

We always run our heads too much
We know the reasons, but such and such
On your own
You will not catch your own ???

We run our big heads together
You know it's easy the devil's plan
On your own
You cannot call me your heart

Jack of all trades
Master of none
Cry all the time
'Cause I'm not having fun

You always want to be forgiven
The devil does what you ask of him
All your knees
You cannot, you will not obey

Auburn And Ivory

Once when I saw her there
White light she stood so still
Warming her eyes to the sea
Hardly her way to be free

Auburn and ivory
Heartbreak and ponytails

Holding her bones by a fire
Writing the letter she sails
White page turns golden lights
Wanting her one sacrifice

Auburn and ivory
Heartbreak and ponytails

Come to me
And I'll tell you what's wrong
She said
"I'll wait for you, I'll wait for"

Once when I saw her there
White light she stood so still
White page turns golden lights
Hardly her one sacrifice

Auburn and ivory
Heartbreak and ponytails

Childhood

The beginning of the end
Thought the harvest was my friend
The nature of that place
Sends a sweet smell around my head
Oh well

The hardest thing of all
The harbouring of our loves
Hiding all the time
We were cast out of everywhere

But enough
Last time
The last time I remember
The last time I remember
It was gone

How I want you to know
How far west we will go
Hand in hand, let it low
All our days in the slow

All my toys are dead

Unravelled at the stairs
Open, but who cares
Why

Lovelier Girl

( Cover of Tony Caro & John's "snowdon song" )

Long days of wanting you here
Living in fear
Shedding a tear for you

Long nights of pasty faced moons
Echo in rooms
Filling with gloom for me

Letters so hard to mail
Feeling like the wind from the sea

Now I step into the line
Girl on the fry (??)
In all the world than you

There's nothing lovelier, girl
In all the world
Than making love to you

Letters so hard to mail
Feeling like the wind from the sea

Lately got to thinking that
How I long have you here with me

House On The Hill

You'd do anything
Just to reach our door
But I won't be there

How does it feel
The house on the hill

You'd give anyone
Just to reach our door

And I won't be there

Heart And Lungs

One, two, three, four

From all eyes
The land disappears
All that is left is a hollow leg of tears
From her smile the golden tooth is won
Child your only hope has flown
Hold on to this house
All I have left is the only place I've been

It's all heart and lungs
It's not that much fun
It's hard, hard to run
It's not that much fun
It's all heart and lungs
It's not that much fun
It's all

Heart
Heart

Rain In Numbers

( Hidden track )

Clouds part (?)

She's rolling of the water
But it always wins

Can we hold you
The rest of your life

Were you lazy
Were you lazy
Always counting
Numbers down

She's rolling down the ???
But it always wins

And we'll ??? you
The rest of our lives
Spend your money
At the ???
Get yourself
In the hollow (?)

She's rolling on the ???
But it's always raining
But it's always raining

And we'll hold you
The rest of your life

Devotion

Wedding Bell

Oh you're hoping tomorrow's never sold
But you're singing the only words you know
Would you cry if I lied ???

I chose, yeah
You're ringing the only wedding bell
And we're swimming the seas we know so well
I tried to stay alive in our bed, in our heads
Oh, but your wish is my command

Oh, is your heart still mine to say
I enjoy nothing more

I chose, yeah
You're ringing the only wedding bell
And we're swimming the seas we know so well
I tried to stay alive in our bed, in our heads
Oh, but your wish is my command

You Came To Me

Invite your sister
Into the garden
All cannot play
Fist full of wild flowers
Hand picked by someone
Who nearly fell

Friend foe or feather
If we roll together
Give my gift to you
In all kinds of weather
If not now, not ever
Please do not go

Hands over your eyes
Recalling your size (?)
Is it the right time
For the game we play

In all kinds of weather
If not now, not ever
This is the right time
For a holiday

La, La, La, La

You came to me
In my dreams
And you spoke of everything
Sweeter remedies, the night wanderings
Holy words dig everything (?)

Gila

Man, you got a lot of jokes to tell
So you throw your baby's pennies down the well
Give a little more than you like
Pick apart the past, you're not going back
Don't you waste your time
No, oh, oh, oh

Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a-a

Sure, you've got a handle on the past
It's why you keep your little lovers in your lap
Give a little more than you like
Pick apart the past, you're not going back
So don't you waste your time
No, oh, oh, oh

Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a-a

Hoping for the last ship to arrive
I've been blessed with a kingdom, half-mine

Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a

Turtle Island

Down the hill I hoped that I'd find
Something I could rest my hands on
In the distant sun is setting
Deer are jumping over hedges

By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
I will wait for you there, creeping silently
I can't keep you right behind me
All my days in the sun

In the waters, trace her features
Did they scare hardened creatures
In that murky green perfection
Did they warn you of dissection

How
What
Why
When

By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
I will wait for you there, creeping silently
I can't keep you right behind me
All my days in the sun

How I want Olive to know
That inside me she will always grow
In all colours and prizes
You will always remain

By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
I can't keep you right behind me
All my days in the sun

Holy Dances

In the night I called your name
Heart of mine
One letter at a time
I'll be found in a Land of savages

Maybe you don't know what you've got
Spent your money on desert lots
Holy dances and acronyms for her

Bury your maps, they'll find
All you pots and pans
Cross all your hands
One finger at a time
You'll be found in a land of savages

Maybe you don't know what you've got
Husk to hide and I know you're not
Spending money on a desert rose
Holy dances and acronyms for bones

All The Years

I was sitting on a rock
Just waiting for a key
To sleep inside the house of old serenity

So I climbed onto your altar
Begged, please don't let me falter
We'll put our oaths at stake
In a heaven that all icicles make

All my devotion
Compelled by an ocean
Of all the years to come
Of all the years to come

So we'll work until the night is quite
What once all our dreams were like
Doing all the housework
Returning all the schoolbooks, for good

Let's go on pretending that the light is never-ending
We still have the summers
To be good to one another

Heart Of Chambers

In your heart of chambers
Where you sit
With your picture books
And your ancient wit
In that nook I found you
So old and tired
Would you be the one to carry me
I'd like to be someone
You could finally learn to love again

Made our iron bed side
Cold as graves
So we stoke the organs
That may comfort grace
And they conjured spirits
To make you smile
Would you be my long time baby

I'd like to be someone
You could finally learn to
Breathe but don't move
Arms by our sides
Let's take the time
To mend these smiles
Together
We could make it home
Love is surprises
Live our own lives

In our beds we're the lucky ones
Filled with the sun
In our beds we're the lucky ones
Fill us with the sun

Some Things Last A Long Time

( Daniel Johnston Cover )

Your picture
Is still
On my wall
On my wall
The colours are bright
Bright as ever
The red is strong
The blue is true
Some things last a long time
Some things last a long time

Your picture
Is still
On my wall
On my wall
I think
About you
Often
Often
I can't forget all the things we did
Some things last a long time
Some things last a long time

It's funny
But it's true
And it's true
But it's not funny
Time comes and goes
All the while
I still think of you
Some things last a long time

Your picture
Is still
On my wall
On my wall
The colours
Are bright
Bright
As ever
Things that we did
All we forget
Some things last a life time
Some things last a life time

Astronaut

Come over to my house
I'll pour some tea for us
One sugar or two
Your hand is right in front of me,
Your finger fragilely, holy on my side

Faster than an astronaut
Who's coming home to what he left long ago
I've made this brand new bed for you
I trust the things we do, holy or not

Open the gate 'cause you're already late
At the end of the lane, is a glass of lemona-ade
Keep or the path when you hear the laugh
In the white of her palm is your heart

I'll be brave for a while
I won't bring you down
Anymore than you are

Please, be my baby, don't mean
Maybe or not, look out the window
There's a bright yellow cat

D.A.R.L.I.N.G.

Where did you come from
You're no stranger
How I know
You will return
So I won't be sad
D.A.R.L.I.N.G

In that harbour of a room
You'll find your anchor soon
In the parting of our ways
May it never happen
Any way

In the highest blackened moon
There'd be more life
In the right shade of our
Sighs, Death!, be gone!
D.A.R.L.I.N.G

In that harbour of a room
You'll find your anchor soon
In the parting of our ways
May it never happen
Anyway...

All of your charms
Couldn't keep you from

Home Again

Home again, driven back
She's still waiting for a friend

Little purple organdie,
Remember what you've always meant to me

Something in the way your heart is nailed upon a hand
Swimming in the cold waters, head above the sand

Heaven, baby, is in an hour
With your heart in handfuls, forbidden flowers
Bread and bonnets along the way
Better take your chances while there's still a ray

Something in the way your heart is nailed upon a hand
Swimming in the cold waters, head above the sand

Constant heart of my devotion
Must be you, the door to open
Home again, be here, be with him
Will I swim out of your ocean

Constant heart of my devotion
Must be you, the door to open
Home again, be here, be with him
Will I swim out of your ocean

Constant heart of my devotion
Must be you, the door to open
Home again, be here, be with him
Will I swim out of your ocean

Silver Soul

We gather matters of the heart
So we can act a fool
It's incomplete without you
The silver soul is running through
It's a vision
Complete illusion, yeah

The needle on the spinning wheel
Collecting silver coil
It gathers heat without you
Whether or not you're turned from it
It's a quick turn
To let us in, yeah

It is happening again
It is happening again
It is happening again
Ah, it is happening again

The bodies lying in the sand
They're moving in the dark
It is so quick to let us in
Feel it moving through our skin
It's a sickness
Infinite quickness, yeah

It is happening again
It is happening again
It is happening again
Ah, it is happening again
It is happening again
Ah, it is happening again
It is happening again
Ah, it is happening again

Norway

We were sleeping till you came along
With your tiny heart
You led us in the wooden house
To share in all the wealth
Don't you know it's true, oh

Norway
Norway

Seven figures lead the hungry mouths
The beast, he comes to you
He's a hunter for a lonely heart
In the season of the sun
Don't you know it's true, oh

Norway
Norway

Where you thinking that you're gonna run to now
With the beating of a tiny heart
You hang on to the things that you're supposed to say
Millions of stars that open to your fate

Norway

Walk In The Park

You go for a walk in the park
'Cause you don't need anything
The hand that you sometimes hold
Doesn't do anything
The face that you see in the door
Isn't standing there anymore

In a matter of time
It will slip from my mind
In and out of my life
You would slip from my mind
In a matter of time

The face that you saw in the door
Isn't looking at you anymore
The name that you call in its place
Isn't waiting for your embrace
The world that you love to behold
Cannot hold you anymore

In a matter of time
It will slip from my mind
In and out of my life
You would slip from my mind
In a matter of time

Used To Be

You are coming home, are you still alone
Are you not the same as you used to be
As the sun grows high and you serve your time
Does each day just feel like another lie

Now you know, is it just for show
Just a foolish game that you hide behind
Don't forget the nights when it all felt right
Are you not the same as you used to be
Used to be
Used to be

In an endless night, could you feel the fright
Of an age that was and could never be
So we hold it close when we feel the most
Like a love that we could not leave behind

Turn the wheel to each way we feel
Till I'm lost and I cannot find you there
Don't forget the nights when it all felt right
Are you not the same as you used to be
Used to be
Used to be

Coming home
Any day now
Any day now
Any day now
Coming home
Any day now
Any day now
Any day now
Coming home
Any day now
Any day now

Lover Of Mine

You hear my cry, lover of mine
No tear in the eye or fear in my mind
The forest is thick and we don't recognize
We parted our lips, and we reached from inside

In a wide-open field
We know we can feel
Awake and unreal, oh
Off to nowhere
Off to nowhere

Off to nowhere

Need more people to be satisfied
No fear of a god and a prayer for the night
You come into our minds and you rush through our lives
We parted our lips, and reached from inside

In a wide-open field
We know we can feel
Awake and unreal, oh
Off to nowhere, hey

Off to nowhere

The only thing you've got
(Off to nowhere)
You know you're better off without it
The only thing you've got
(Off to nowhere)
You know you're better off without it
The only thing you've got
(Off to nowhere)
You know you're better off without it
The only thing you've got (Off to nowhere)
You know you're better off without it

Youngest fire
You decide
You decide
What is right
Youngest fire
Who decides
We decide
What is right
Near yet so far
Isn't it
Near yet so far
(The only thing you've got)
Isn't it
(You know you're better off without it)
Near yet so far
(The only thing you've got)
Isn't it
(You know you're better off without it)
Near yet so far
(The only thing you've got)
Isn't it

(You know you're better off without it)

Better Times

I want you to know the truth
'Cause I've been around before
Thought I wasn't looking anymore

Been a fool for weeks
'Cause my heart stands for nothing
And your soul's too weak
Got a will that's been around for days
Goes far if you want it
It needs to behave
But then you
You come around
Big mistake

I don't want to know
I don't want to know
We don't need a sign to know
Better times

Running around 'cause you beat yourself up
'Cause you made a crack and the one that you love is gone
How much longer can you play with fire
Before you turn into a liar, huh?

Running around 'cause you beat yourself up
'Cause you made a crack and the one that you love is gone
How much longer can you play with fire
Before you turn into a liar

I've been around before
Thought you weren't looking anymore
But then we
We come and go
Goes up in smoke

I don't want to know
I don't want to know
We don't need a sign to know
Better times

10 Mile Stereo

The heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw
Put your hand on this stone, it's the stone of a home you know
They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go
With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon

They say we can throw far, but they don't know how far we throw
With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon
The heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw
They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go

It can't be gone
We're still right here
It took so long
Can't say we heard it all
Limbs parallel
We stood so long, we fell
Tear a moment from the days
That carry us on forever

This push and pull is the force of a wave of time
In the heat of a night we would cry, you are not mine
They said we would go far, but they didn't know how far we'd go
'Cause this heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw

It can't be gone
We're still right here
It took so long
Can't say we saw it all
Limbs parallel
We stood so long, we fell
Bright pyramids at night
That carry us on forever

It can't be gone
We're still right here
It took so long
Can't say we felt it all
Limbs parallel
We stood so long, we fell
Love's like a pantheon
It carries on forever

Real Love

I met you somewhere
In a hell beneath the stairs
There's someone in that room
That frightens you when they go boom
Boom, boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom

The colour you say is black
Is the one you might lack
In the size of your eyes
Is there a righteous prize

I met you
I met you

There's something wrong with our hearts
When they beat pure, they stand apart
In the black room, the light
Watch the seabird fall
Real love, it finds you somewhere with your back to it

I met you
I met you

We go, you know, we belong
By the street, to the dark
We go, you know, we belong
By the street, to the dark
We go, you know, we belong
By the street, to the dark
We go, you know, we belong
By the street, to the dark

Take Care

Stand beside it
We can't hide the way it makes us glow
It's no good unless it grows
Feel this burning love of mine

Deep inside the ever-spinning
Tell me, does it feel
It's no good unless it's real
Hillsides burning, wild-eyed turning
Till we're running from it

I'd take care of you
If you'd ask me to
In a year or two
Oh

You say swimming in the lake
We'll come across a snake
It is real and then it's fake
Feel its heartbeat
Feel what you heat
Far so fast it feels too late

I'd take care of you
If you'd ask me to
In a year or two
Oh

I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true
Oh, I'd take care of you
Take care of you, that's true

Myth

Drifting in and out
You see the road you're on
It came rolling down your cheek
You say just what you mean
And in between
It's never as it seems

Help me to name it
Help me to name it

If you built yourself a myth
You'd know just what to give
What comes after this momentary bliss
The consequence of what you do to me

Help me to name it
Help me to name it

Found yourself in a new direction
Arrows falling from the sun
Canyon calling
Would they come to greet you
Let you know you're not the only one

Can't keep hanging on
To what is dead and gone

If you built yourself a myth
You'd know just what to give
Materialize
Or let the ashes fly

Help me to name it
Help me to name it

Wild

My mother said to me
That I would get in trouble
Our father won't come home
'Cause he is seeing double

Out in the endless green
Your eyes are so misleading
That's when the car pulls up
Its hood is black and gleaming

And in a while
You start a smile
The earth is wild
We've got no time

Wild in our ways
What we are making
Heartless to say
Go on pretending

One chance to fall behind the lines
That will not let you
Can I believe in how the past is
What will catch you

And in a while
You start to smile
The earth is wild
We've got no time

Lazuli

In the blue of this life
Where it ends in the night
When you couldn't see
You would come for me

Wonder eyes, motion high
And I don't dare slip on by
Make us suffer
Like no other

Is nothing like
Lapis Lazuli
Let it go
Back to me

Like no other
You can't be replaced

Like no other
(Is nothing like)
You can't be replaced
(Lapis Lazuli)

Other People

So you thought it would happen
Good love goodbye
I know where no one can reach you
No I don't mind
It's your word why would you fake it
These days go by
As you turn around

Other people want to keep in touch
Something happens and it's not enough
Never thought that it would mean so much
Other people want to keep in touch

Heaven won't keep us together
Right place at the wrong time
It takes all kinds of weather
Distant new skies
Somewhere nothing could reach us
These days go by
As you turn around

Other people want to keep in touch
Something happens and it's not enough
Never thought that it would mean so much
Other people want to keep in touch

Was it ever quite enough

The Hours

Can I wait the hours
Till they find me
Climb up to the tower
So that you could see

Violence in the flowers
Where they found you
Can I wait the hours
Would it be untrue
Climb up to the tower
So that you could see
All across the hours

Frightened eyes
Looking back at me
Change your mind
Don't care about me
Frightened eyes
Looking back at me
Change your mind
Don't leave without me
Frightened eyes

Made in your reflection
So that you could feel
Mad in your intentions
Feel it isn't real
All the recollections
Spinning in a field
Left in your possession
Till it isn't real
You say it isn't real

Frightened eyes
Looking back at me
Change your mind
Don't care about me
Frightened eyes
Looking back at me
Change your mind
Don't leave without me
Frightened eyes

Deeper than you and me
It's farther than you could see
Is it too much to ask tell me
It's all in a glance you'll see

It's deeper than you and me
It's all in a glance you'll see
It's farther than we could be
It's deeper than you and me

Frightened eyes

Troublemaker

Like a hand you reached out to me
Thunder rolls in with the dark
Tiny fingers on the edges
Watch it unravel pulling everything apart

In the back we stay together
The walls are shaking from within
Does it become you troublemaker
Watch them unravel you pulling everything apart

Someday out of the blue
It will find you
Always
Always a face to remind me
Someone like you
Someone like you
Someone like you

You watch the shape these things are taking
Do you cry out in your sleep
Does it become you when you're under
Your heart is racing you're taking everything too hard

When you walk away
You show me how come
Pull me under

Someday out of the blue
It will find you
Always
Always a face to remind me
Someone like you
Someone like you
Someone like you

Someday out of the blue
It will find you
Always
Always a face to remind me

New Year

All I wanted comes in colours
Vanish everyday
Stranger things will come before you
Always out of the way
I keep these promises, these promises

Can you call it see it coming
Just enough to tell a story
About a portrait of a young girl
Waiting for a new year

All you ever wanted is it getting away
Visions of a feeling the footsteps at bay
You were getting stronger memories again
Now you're open wider it's better this way

All I wanted comes in colours
Vanish everyday
I keep these promises, these promises
Stranger things will come before you
Always out of the way

We keep these promises, these promises
Won't you write a letter on the page
In your own way
Write it in a letter
On the page
It's on your own way

You were getting wiser its better this way
You were getting wiser
Faces in the mirror memories again
Now look to a feeling it's lighter than breath
All you ever wanted is it getting away

Can you call it see it coming
Just enough to tell a story
About a portrait of a young girl
Waiting for the ending of an era

Can you call it see it coming
Just enough to tell a story
About a portrait of a young girl
Waiting for the new year

Wishes

The roses on the lawn
Don't know which side you're on
In a daze it will change
Wishes on a wheel, wishes on a wheel

The voices in the hall
Will carry on their talking
Carry weight you can't take
Wishes on a wheel, is it even real

The contact that you make
The moment when a memory achess
Who can tell, you do, it tell
Wishes on a wheel, how's it supposed to feel

One in your life
It happens once and rarely twice
One in your life
It happens once and rarely twice

The roses on the lawn
Won't know which side you're on
On that hill, forever still

Wishes on a wheel
How's it supposed to feel
Wishes on a wheel...

On The Sea

On the sea we'd be forgiven
Our bodies stopped the spirit living
Wouldn't you like to know
How far you've got left to go

Somebody's child nobody made you
It's not what you stole it's what they gave you
In or out you go
In your silence, your soul

Would you rather go unwilling
The heart is full and now it's spilling
Barrelling down the steps
Only a moment left

In hind of sight no peace of mind
Where you begin and I'm defined
Daughter of unconscious fate
Time will tell in spite of me
In hind of sight no peace of mind
It begins and we'll be fine
Where shadows bend and suddenly
The world becomes and swallows me

Whistle to a friend
Gentle til the end
Anyway in a name
She takes shape
Just the same

Irene

Though you hardly know her
The lights on its way
The hand that rests upon it

Still wanna stay

No way of recognizing
The cat knows the call
Fair child is rising

There's no mystery at all

It's a strange paradise
You'll be waiting

Depression Cherry

Levitation

You and me
With our long hair on the gold wall
After midnight, we can feel it all
I'd go anywhere you want to

You should see
There's a place I want to take you
When the train comes I will hold you
(When the train comes I will hold you)
‘Cause you blow my mind
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
On the bridge
Levitating ‘cause we want to
When the unknown will surround you
(When the unknown will surround you)
There is no right time
There is no right time

The branches of the trees
They will hang lower now
You will grow too quick
Then you will get over it

The branches of the trees
They will hang lower now

There's a place I want to take you
When the unknown will surround you
There's a place I want to take you
Were you high
When they knocked on the door
Looking for you

When the unknown will surround you
Take my hand
As our bodies lift up slowly
There's a place I want to take you
Were you high
When they knocked on the door
Looking for you
When the unknown will surround you
Take my hand
As our bodies lift up slowly
There's a place I want to take you

Sparks

We drive around this town
Houses melting down
A vision turning green
Is all we've ever seen

And then it's dark again

A new development
Wishing that it meant
Something natural
Don't we know it's cruel
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And it goes dark again
Just like a spark

Hallucination comes
Think of everyone
That never shared before
From my mouth to yours

And then it's dark again
Just like a spark

And then it vanishes
No one around
And then it comes again
Just like a spark

And then we're vanishing
No one around
And then it comes again
Just like a spark

You go to school
You follow all the rules
You live inside
Realize
There's something in your eyes
You're back again
From the spine rising through the mind
You give it up
It's a gift
Taken from the lips
You live again

Make it
Wave it
Alive

Space Song

It was late at night
You held on tight
From an empty sea
A flash of light

It will take a while
To make you smile
Somewhere in these eyes
I'm on your side

You wide-eyed girls
You get it right

Fall back into place
Fall back into place

Tender is the night
For a broken heart
Who will dry your eyes
When it falls apart
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
What makes this fragile world go 'round
Were you ever lost, was she ever found
Somewhere in these eyes

Fall back into place
Fall back into place
Fall back into

Fall back into place
Fall back into place
Fall back into...

Beyond Love

Beyond Love
The first thing that I do before I get into your house
I'm gonna tear off all the petals from the rose that's in your mouth

Beyond Love
You wanted to find Elvis and I didn't understand
They take the simple things inside you and put nightmares in your hands

Beyond Love
This man comes to me
Heartbreak did this
He was made to believe
That he should live without it

All I know is what I see
No change in this
Visions born in the dreams
Of a world left without it

We really wanna know
We really do agree
We really do agree
We really wanna know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The last thing that she sees before they turn off all the lights was there
A man up in the corner with the spiders made of light

We really wanna know
Beyond love
All I know is what I see
And I can't live without this

Could you ever believe
Beyond Love
I really wanna know
I really wanna know

10:37

Chances are like night you'll disappear
Caught in the atmosphere
Where you go, she casts no shadow
Still you know she's near
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
L--a--i
L--a--i

Here she comes
All parts of everything
Stars in the motherhand

With the dark
Thunder above you
Come to us soaring

L--a--i
L--a--i

Chances are
10:37
House made of the dawn
Disappears

L--a--i
L--a--i

PPP

Out in the heartland
I looked in your eyes
And I asked
"Are you ready?
Ready for this life?"

Did you see it coming
It happened so fast
The timing was perfect
Water on glass
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Like tracing figure 8s
On ice in skates oh well
And if this ice
Should break
It would be
My mistake

Between the cities
Between the thrills
There's something inside you
It doesn't sleep well

It won't last forever
Or maybe it will
The white clothes they gave you
You wear them so well

Someone once told me
In love, that you must
Place all you're given
In infinite trust

Yet I'm tracing figure 8s
On ice in skates so well
And if this ice should break
It would be
My mistake

Wildflower

No better color
Looked everywhere
We're driving home every night
The shadows stay by your side

You built a city
All in your head
Triangle of every light
It turns you on every night

Need a companion
A hidden prayer
You know you're not losing your mind
What's left you make something of it
The sky and what's left above it
The way you want nothing of it
Baby I'm yours
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
No better color
Look everywhere
You built a city
All in your head

You know you're not losing your mind
What's left you make something of it
The sky what's left above it
The way you want nothing of it
Wildflower

Bluebird

Light that comes up on the ceiling
My mouth and these arms hold a feeling
Even I can't control my nature

If they should come up much before you
I would not ever try to capture you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Bluebird
Where you gonna go now

Lead me to the gallows
Where out corner of my eye there's something
That's pulling me back from nothing, from nothing

If there should come up much before you
I would not ever try to capture you

Bluebird (would not ever try)
Where you gonna go now
Scenes change (would not ever try)
‘fore they are over
Before they are over

Days of Candy

No one could find you
Out on your own
All things I loved
But do not know

On hopewell road
These days of candy
Live in your mind
Those violet lines
White fenced in miles

Across my eyes
A world inside you
No photograph
My natural one
The rising sun
Live in your mind

Just like that, it's gone
Just like that, it's gone
Just like that

I know it comes too soon
The universe is riding off with you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's saken,                             
I hope, out there, I know
A little bit of you I keep it close to me
I know it comes too soon
The universe is riding on with you

I know it comes too soon
I know it stays for nobody
I want to know you there
The universe is riding off with you

Thank Your Lucky Stars

Majorette

Imitation red carnation
Nothing is new and neither are you
It's what you say you don't do
Bottom of your well, that's where you fell

Majorette like there's nothing left
If there was nothing left to lose
Then you'd have something to prove
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And you would never tip your hat
Has it come to that
Watch you spin like that
Watch it spin like that

Watch you spin like that
Watch it spin like that
Watch you spin like that
Watch you spin like that...

She's So Lovely

She's so lovely
Everything about her
Mannerisms of another

Castles in the sand
Money in your hand
And all I have to do
Is everything for you

From the way that her eyes are shaped
And it's making me sick
With her head on my shoulder
Waking up baby just to believe

For her dinner
Baby pink lavender
Leather white umbrella sinner

She's so lovely
Everything about her
Mannerisms of another

She's so lovely
Everything about her
Mannerisms of another

Castles in the sand
Money in your hand
And all I have to do
Is stay away from you

All Your Yeah

Hush don't you cry
In the next life
She takes me to the water
Don't say a word

And when I ask her
Is she doing alright
She's a rollercoaster
And yeah, she's a fire in the night

Lay your dead flowers
All in a row
Sooner or later
We're gonna let them go

And when she asks me
Are we doing it right
Come a little closer
You've got nothing left to hide

Hush don't you cry
In the next life

And when they ask us
Are we happy inside
We're a rollercoaster
And yeah, we're a fire in the night
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robot
What can you say
All your yeahs
It's your life
Do you right
Give them love

All your yeahs
What can you say
All your yeahs
It's your life
Do you right
Give them love
And give them away

One Thing

One thing yea about you
You always yea you always know
What's happening
Perfect in the morning
And you ruin it in the evening

Remarkable
When a likeness comes
You're lucky just to meet
Come down the hill
And up the stairs
She never really sleeps
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robot
Closer now in the mirror
Your reflection, my reflection
Growing nearer
Pressure oh the pressure
In confession

Hallelujah

Remarkable
When a likeness comes
You're always out of reach
The faces in the secondhand
A little fuck off kiss

Remarkable
That you're lucky just to meet
Come down the hill
'Cause she never really sleeps

Common Girl

You used to live in this part of town
Until you hit the ground
She makes movies where she cries on cue
She still lives downtown

But it's ok
Cause she's common anyway
And the streets are all filled
With the strangers, pay the bills

She's the one with the lazy eye
Promises never come filled
Takes the pills and hides the notices
Cartoon rings of ill will
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robot
But it's ok
'Cause she's common in every way
And the streets are all filled
With the strangers, pay the bills

Nobody special done a good thing
For somebody else
Taking advantage of that good thing
For nobody else

The Traveller

When I come home
You're just lying there
Face against the wall
Never had a care

I am just a traveller
There's no light in this room
And the body's aching at night

Would I be acting up
If i said it's not enough

Who knows who else who is with
No one is with the traveller
There's a light in my eyes
And a future invisible now
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robot
Heard it's your birthday
Candles in a row
Better blow them quick
Before they're melting on the floor

You were never a traveller
There's no light in your room
And the bodies don't ache in the night

Would I be acting up
If i said not that much

Who else would do anything for the traveller
There's a light in her eyes
And a future visible touch

I was looking out of the window at the sky
Starless vigil of a life that has gone by
Saturn turning and I feel there's not much more
For a vision of the night turn off your light

Elegy to the Void

To your sons and daughters
Bending at the altar
Disappearing in the mirror

Watch it as it burns out
(It is just a flame)
Freckle faced young virgin
(It is just a game)

Platinum vision
Bringing you down again and again
Again and again
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Black clock looming distant
You're a great white
They were never listening
Waiting for the light to come again

Deep beneath the waves
Lilies of the day
Garden of remains
Diamond maiden chained

To your sons and daughters
Bending at the altar
Don't you disappear in the mirror again and again
Again and again

Deep beneath the waves
White-winged birds of May
Run from hollow hills
Walk into the night

Deep beneath the waves
Lilies of the day
Run from hollow hills
Walk into the night

Rough Song

In the middle of the party
Found a hole to be sorry
Through the glass
Drank a memory of her face

All the charm in the evening
Peridot television
Loveless another
Daughter and mother

Shut the door she'll have no more another vodka cocktail party
Her story unravels like a ribbon in the windy distance
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Schoolgirls were praying
Lace curtains fading
Fern of the forest
Dearly beloved

Hard to hear she spit on you and made your bloody nose more bloody
Shut the door she'll have no more another vodka cocktail party

Totems in the night
I want to forget
All that wasn't right
I need to leave

Totems in the night
I want to forget
All that wasn't right
I need to leave it

Totems in the night
I want to forget
All that wasn't right
She needs to leave it

Somewhere Tonight

Pink and blue were dancing
Empty floor, shadows lancing
Somewhere in a ballroom tonight

Red and blue combination
Old man finds elation
Somewhere in a ballroom tonight
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Love me see what I see tonight
Let us find elation
Somewhere in a ballroom tonight
Nowhere on an ordinary night
