It becomes self-evident the moment you hear her sing the very first note of her very first EP. It's called 'Like A Star', and it's a slice of sublime Billie Holiday blues delivered with a voice that pins you, in the softest but most persuasive of ways, to the wall; a voice that floats up effortlessly, full of caress, subtlety and the very purest quality. It is wonderful, this voice, and surely a discovery to treasure, but it belongs to a young woman not from somewhere musically exotic - say, Mississippi or even Manhattan - but just east of the M1: Leeds. Her name is Corinne Bailey Rae, and she was born to do this.

"I started off singing in church, I suppose, but people think it must have been a gospel church because of the whole, you know, black assumption," she says in reference to her mixed-race background. "But it wasn't gospel at all, it was just your regular brethren church, very middle-class, where we would sing these harmonies every Sunday. It was always my favourite part of the service, the singing."

A move to a down-at-heel Baptist church followed, where the choir alternated between traditional hymns and the slightly less orthodox Primal Scream wig-outs. "We changed the words though," explains Corinne. "We didn't want to offend the regular churchgoers, now did we?" Singing in this way every week led to a broadening of Corinne's tastes and when her youth leader offered to buy her an electric guitar she grabbed the opportunity, quite literally, with both hands. So began her love affair with making music, and she soon developed a healthy appetite for one of the most innovative bands that rock and roll had to offer, namely, Led Zeppelin.

"I loved that band during my teens," she says. "I wanted, somehow, to follow in their footsteps, and to create music of my own."

This she has duly done. Via a faltering indie band, an English literature degree and a determination that simply would not wane, she has now arrived fully-formed, and with a musical poise that sets her head and shoulders above pretty much anybody you could call her peer. Her forthcoming debut album is sublime, full of tiptoeing delicacy and wraparound warmth, and one that merges the spirit of the aforementioned Billie Holiday with the statuesque soul of Erykah Badu. Even a cursory listen will tell you that its creator is something rather special. Corinne Bailey Rae was born and raised in Leeds, the oldest of three daughters to a West Indian father and a Yorkshire mother. At school, she studied classical violin to a high standard, but any ambitions to take this to a higher level were quickly scotched when the afore-mentioned Zeppelin adoration took hold. By the time she turned 15, Corinne was also obsessing over female-led, indie noiseniks like Veruca Salt and L7, and wanted to start her own band. And so she did. Its name was Helen. Helen? "I know, I know," she says in defence. "What can I say? We were 15 years old, and thought that Helen was a cheeky, indie kind of thing to do. It seemed clever at the time." She smiles. "Admittedly, it seems less so now." Uninspiring name notwithstanding, Helen began attracting considerable local attention. Good enough to elicit an offer of a deal from the home to all manner of guitar abusers, Roadrunner Records, all was going well until the bassist fell pregnant, and the band fragmented.

"Disappointed? I was gutted," Corinne says now. "I had no idea what to do next."

And so she went off to Leeds University where she studied English literature and spent evenings working as a modern-day hatcheck girl in a local jazz club. Every now and then she was allowed to sing with the band, and from those evenings new ideas began to form. By now, Corinne was writing songs that she wanted to perform solo, and was moving away from all things indie into more soulful territory. By the time EMI signed her in the spring of last year, she had 10 years of experience tucked neatly under her belt, knew exactly what she wanted and just how to get it. "I am a fan of jazz, but not the muso kind," she says. "I hate all the noodling, which is why I love classic songs: because they are so pure and succinct. That's what I tried to do with my own songs. They are short and sweet, to the point. I like the idea of leaving people wanting more, not less, you know?" And so, inspired as much by BjŲrk and Massive Attack as, say, Jill Scott, she went into the studio and came up with her debut album. It is in Corinne's own words, "a little bit of everything: it's chilled out, acoustic, kooky, atmospheric and soulful. I'd also be tempted to say it comes from a very organic place, but that would sound pretentious, so I won't."

And if she writes about the staple of all great soul songs - love - then she does so with less emphasis on its pink fluffiness than its unwritten complexities and multiple challenges. "I'm interested in the things that no one ever tells you about in relationships, about how love works in terms of expectation versus reality." Because of this, songs like 'Till It Happens To You', 'Like A Star' and 'Choux Pastry Heart' are unusually intimate, each sparkling with a storytelling honestly that her peers can only dream of. "The response so far has been amazing," she says, "and that has been very satisfying, because all this feels so right to me. Writing songs - playing music - is, I know, precisely what I should be doing with my life." Her name is Corinne Bailey Rae. She is 26 years old, talented and, by the by, very cute as well. She also has a firm handshake, and that's always a good sign, isn't it?

Like A Star

Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands
Honour to love you

Still I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

You've got this look I can't describe
You make me feel like I'm alive
When everything else is au fait
Without a doubt you're on my side
Heaven has been away too long
Can't find the words to write this song
Of your love

Still I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind
Yeah...

I have come to understand the way it is
It's not a secret anymore
'Cause we've been through that before
From tonight I know that you're the only one
I've been confused and in the dark
Now I understand, yeah

I wonder why it is
I don't argue like this
With anyone but you
I wonder why it is
I won't let my guard down
For anyone but you
We do it all the time
Blowing out my mind

Just like a star across my sky
Just like an angel off the page
You have appeared to my life
Feel like I'll never be the same
Just like a song in my heart
Just like oil on my hands

Enchantment

I wait for you
I don't know why
All I now is I can't hide
At this temperature
You could take over my mind

Like gossamer
You softly touch
He draws me in
I'm powerless
He possesses
An enchantment

Tell me
I'm forgiven
He calls
Don't know how I fell under his spell
Lately
I've been driven
He smiles
An enchantment

I wait for you
I'm mesmerized
This love is like a potion
In disguise
I'd tightrope walk
With a blindfold on my eyes

I can't escape
Or so it seems
I'd run away
He's in my dreams
He possesses
An enchantment

Tell me
I'm forgiven
He calls
Don't know how I fell under his spell
Lately
I've been driven
He smiles
An enchantment

It's the kind of sleepwalk that never ends
A type of loan with no dividends
It's a parlour game where you're giving chase
Guess it could be called an acquired taste

I know, he knows
He calls, I go, I know
This could be an enchantment

Why don't you tell me
I'm forgiven
He calls
Don't know how I fell under his spell
I'm forgiven
Lately
I've been driven
He smiles and I give in
An enchantment

Put Your Records On

Three little birds sat on my window
And they told me I donít need to worry
Summer came like cinnamon, so sweet
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete

Maybe sometimes
We've got it wrong but itís alright
The more things seem to change
The more they stay the same
Oh, donít you hesitate

Girl, put your records on
Tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
Youíre going to find yourself somewhere, somehow

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely
Sipping tea in the bar by the road side
Just relax, just relax
Donít you let those other boys fool you
Got to love that afro hair do

Maybe sometimes
We feel afraid, but itís alright
The more you stay the same
The more they seem to change
Donít you think itís strange

Girl, put your records on
Tell me your favourite song, yeah
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
Youíre going to find yourself somewhere, somehow

'Twas more than I could take
Pity for pityís sake
Some nights kept me awake
I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realize
That you donít even have to try any longer
Do what you want to

Girl, put your records on
Tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Go let your head down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
Baby let your hair down

Girl, put your records on
Tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans
I hope you get your dreams
Just go ahead, let your hair down
Oh youíre gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

'Till it happens to you

I know what I said
Was heat of the moment
There's a little truth in between the words we spoke and
It's a little late now to fix a heart that's broken
Please don't ask me where I'm going
'Cause I don't know
No I don't know, anymore

It used to feel like heaven
It used to feel like may
I used to hear those violins playing heart strings like a symphony
Now they've gone away
Nobody wants to face the truth
But you won't believe what love can do
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

Went to the old flat
Guess I was trying to turn the clock back
But how comes that nothing feels the same now when I'm with you
We used to stay up all night
In the kitchen when our love was new
Oh love am I a fool to believe in you
'Cause I don't know
No I don't know, anymore

It used to feel like heaven
It used to feel like may
I used to hear those violins playing heart strings like a symphony
Now they're gone away
Nobody wants to know the truth
Until their heart's broken
Don't you dare tell them what you think to do
Till they get over
You can only learn these things from experience
When you get older
I just wish that someone would've told me

Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

Trouble Sleeping

It's late and I'm feeling so tired
Having trouble sleeping
This constant compromise
Between thinking and breathing

Could it be I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in
Won't say that I'm falling in love
Tell me I don't see myself
Couldn't I blame something else
Don't say I'm falling in love

Some kind of therapy
Is all I need
Please believe me
Some instant remedy
That can cure me completely

Could it be I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in
Won't say that I'm falling in love
Tell me I don't see myself
Couldn't I blame something else
Don't say I'm falling in love

Cause I've been there before
And it's not enough
So nobody say it
Don't even say it
I've got my eyes shut
Won't look, oh no, no

Could it be I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in
Won't say that I'm falling in love
Tell me I don't see myself
Couldn't I blame something else
Don't say I'm falling in love

Don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say that I'm falling in love

Don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say that I'm falling in love

Call Me When You Get This

How does it feel
Being in these arms
What's it really like to be loved

I've been alone now, how long
Have you ever loved the way that I have

And I have often wondered who
Who could love you the way I do

Now I just want you to know
How I'm touched deep in my soul
Just being with you
And I need you more each day
Baby, if you're still awake
Call me when you get this

I've got all this poetry
Now I didn't know then
I kept inside

Guess I had never seen anything beautiful
Till I first saw you asleep at night

And I have often wondered who
Who could love you the way I do

Now I just want you to know,
How I'm touched deep in my soul
Just being with you
And I need you more each day
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this

I just wanted to know what it was like
What's it really like to be loved
These little volcanoes
Came as a surprise to me
Oh I never thought I could be this way

Oh, oh, and I have been cautious
And I've tried to keep to myself
But who could love you the way I do

Now I just want you to know
How I'm touched deep in my soul
Just being with you
Oh so much more each day
Baby, if you're still awake
Call me when you get this

I just want you to know
How i'm touched deep in my soul
Just being with you
And I need you
I need you more each day
If you're still awake
Oh call me when you get this

Choux Pastry Heart

I was just waiting for your phonecall
When they came along to say
That a rose done chase you clear away

You had said I was gamine
But we didn't mean the same thing I think
Broke my choux pastry heart
Guess life's no picture postcard

One for sorrow
Two for joy

Sometimes you will lose
Sometimes you lose
Don't wanna lose you
Don't even own you, yeah
I just wanna stay right here
Until never dawns, yeah

I was just waiting for your answer
Still, you made your own apologies
I cried so much I had to leave

Three for a girl
Four for a boy, oh

Sometimes you will lose
Sometimes you lose
Don't wanna lose you, yeah
Don't even own you, yeah
I just wanna stay right here
Until never dawns, yeah

Breathless

Seems like everyone else has a love just for them
I don't mind we have such a good time my best friend
But sometimes well, I wish we could be more than friends
Tell me do you know, tell me do you know

I get so breathless when you call my name
I've often wondered do you feel the same
There's a chemistry, energy, a synchronicity
When we're all alone
So don't tell me
You can't see
What I'm thinking of

I can understand that you don't want to cross the line
And you know I can't promise you things will turn out fine
But I have to be honest, I want you to be mine
Tell me do you know, tell me do you know

I get so breathless when you call my name
I've often wondered do you feel the same
There's a chemistry, energy, a synchronicity
When we're all alone
So don't tell me (don't you tell me)
You can't see, oh

Cause I've tried to do this right in your own time
I've been telling you with my eyes
My heart's on fire, why don't you realize
Tell me do you know, tell me do you know

I get so breathless
I get so breathless when you call my name
When you call my name
I've often wondered do you feel the same
There's a chemistry, energy, a synchronicity
When we're all alone
So don't tell me (don't you tell me)
You can't see, oh
What I'm thinking of

I get so breathless
I get so breathless when you call my name
When you call my name
I've often wondered do you feel the same
There's a chemistry, energy, a synchronicity
When we're all alone
So don't tell me (don't you tell me)
You can't see, what I'm thinking of

I'd Like To

Lying here with you reminds me of those days
Me and Candice waking up to a heatwave
Mother's in the garden inviting everyone
Oh we'd cut off our old jeans and go outside

Neighbour's always smiling with a baby on her knee
Rhea sat on the front step getting her hair combed out and greased
And music, the bass booming, pours from a car parked in the street
Got that new song on repeat

Oh I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint these pictures for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just trying to make you see that I desire the simple things

Growing up we didn't have a lot of money
Used to spend our summers having parties on the drive
Plastic cups for rum and punch, eating chicken that's hot and sweet
All the women discussing what love is like
Oh you know the way I mean
And I'm just sitting watching hoping the boys will call for me
Got that new song on repeat

Oh I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint these pictures for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just trying to make you see that I desire the simple things

Maybe then, now and then, I would want somebody
Delicate, intimate, used to dream of someone to love
Now you come and you go right by me
I know I'm in love

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint these pictures for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just trying to make you see that I desire the simple things

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint these pictures for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just trying to make you see that I desire the simple things

I, I, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I, I, I'd like to paint these pictures for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I desire the simple things

I, I, I'd like to put my fingers on you...

Butterfly

In my mother's house
There's a photograph
Of a day gone past
Always makes me laugh
There's a little girl
Wary of the world
She's got much to learn
Get her fingers burnt
An affinity
Between you and me
Was a family, yeah
Said that I'd be fine
Gave me all your time
And I left your side
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
Colour everyday
You make the milk-gold sun shine on me again
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
And you give me life
Like a butterfly

In my mother's house
There was happiness
I wrapped myself in it
Was my chrysalis
As my life unfolds
See a pattern through
Of you protecting me
And I protecting you
What was that you'd say
"Make your own mistakes
And when you're grown
Make sure that you remain the same"
Now I realize
What was on your mind
When I left your side
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
Colour everyday
You make the milk-gold sun shine on me again
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Would you give me life
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
Colour everyday
You make the milk-gold sun shine on me again
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
And you give me life
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
Colour everyday
You make the milk-gold sun shine on me again
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
And you give me life
Like a butterfly

Seasons Change

Maybe you've been pouring everything into this
From a state of bliss it turns to agony
You can't predict this when it comes to it
You can't hide from it, but don't you surrender anything
Don't you know that, that patience is a virtue
Yes it is
And life is a waiting game
Don't you know that, peace must be nurtured
And all the money in the world can buy you nothing
Let me tell you that

All these things happen
All these things happen for a reason
So don't you go and throw it all away, you'll get yours
When the seasons change (you gonna change)

Hurts me to see you feel this way
But it won't be always
Don't you know everything's got to change
Oh feels like all your hope is gone
You can't carry on
But there's nothing wrong
You don't have to pretend with me
Don't you know that, that patience is a virtue
Yes it is
And life is a waiting game
Don't you know that, peace must be nurtured
And all the money in the world can buy you nothing
Let me tell you that
All these things happen
All these things happen for a reason
So don't you go and throw it all away, you'll get yours
When the seasons change
When the seasons change, yeah...

The Sea

Are You Here

He's a real live wire
He's the best of his kind
Wait till you see those eyes

He dresses like this different scene
He'll kiss you make you feel sixteen
What's it even mean

Are you here
Are you here
Are you here
ĎCause my heart recalls that
It all seems the same
It all feels the same
Pick me up

It's hard to recall the taste of summer
When everywhere around, the chill of winter
It gets so far away

Are you here
Are you here
Are you here
ĎCause my heart recalls that
It all feels the same

And he comes
To lay me down in a garden
Of tuberose's
When he comes around
There's nothing more to imagine
Just tuberose's
Tuberose's

Are you here
Are you here
Are you here
ĎCause my heart recalls that it
All seems like
All looks like
It all feels like
It tasted like
Tasted
Tasted like

When he comes
To lay me down in a garden
Of tuberose's
When he comes around
There's nothing more to imagine
Just tuberose's
Tuberose's

Wait till you see those eyes

I'd Do It All Again

Oh, youíre searching for something I know
Wonít make you happy
Oh, youíre thirsting for something I know
Wonít make you happy

Oh, you did it all again
You broke another skin
Itís hard to believe this time
Hard to believe that my heart
My heartís an open door
You got all you came for, baby

So weary
Someone to love
Is bigger than your prideís worth
Is bigger than the pain you got for it hurts
And out runs all of the sadness
Itís terrifying, life, through the darkness

And Iíd do it all again
Iíd do it all again
Iíd do it all again
Iíd do it all again
You try sometimes but it wonít stop
You got my heart and my headís lost, oh
Iíve been burning down these candles for love, for love

So weary
Someone to love
Is bigger than your pride

Someone to love
Is bigger than the pain you got for it hurts
Someone to love

Oh, youíre searching for something I know
Wonít make you happy, oh

Feels Like The First Time

I could pretend that I was ok
I wind around the parties, drink in hand
I could pretend when you went away
That I had changed and I no longer hear the band

But I won't lie
I found a love
I had to rediscover
I was emotionally scarred we could not get it away
There are times when it breaks and I feel amazed

Feels just like the first time when you kiss me, my lover
Angels in the sky will descend on our love
And it's hard to deny what is happening
Although we talk, talk, talk on the telephone
We laugh, laugh, laugh at the things we know

I've been a soldier for much too long
I'd willingly surrender all my arms
If you decided you won't be long
I'd wait here patient for you
Look for you every morning

Had this love
There were sparks
We tried to push it on but
I was afraid of the dark
We could not get it away
Never mind what they say
I would feel the same

Feels just like the first time when you kiss me, my lover
Angels in the sky will descend on our love
And it's hard to describe what is happening
Although we talk, talk, talk on the telephone
We laugh, laugh, laugh at the things we know

If I could choose then my heart would be in it
My charms would be in it
My love would be in it

I know you heard me on the telephone
I know you knew that I was coming for you
But you still won't give me the answer, oh

Feels just like the first time when you kiss me, my lover
Angels in the sky will descend on our love
And it's hard to deny what is happening
Although we talk, talk, talk on the telephone
We laugh, laugh, laugh at the things we know

The Blackest Lily

I didn't know the day was
I didn't know what the time it was
I didn't know what my heart would do
I was afraid of nothing when you called me on the telephone

I was a creature of appetites
And we played a game that you didn't like
There wasn't nothing that I couldnít do
I can be so bad, I can be so bad
Just took it away and we broke it in two

Colour my heart, colour my heart
Make it restart, make it restart
Colour my heart
I want it more than I ever knew
The blackest lily, the blackest pony
Won't protect my heart from you, oh, oh, oh

You were unnerving and delicate
And I had a weakness for etiquette
You laid a trail that led straight to your door
Oh and I could resist but it was hard to endure

Colour my heart, colour my heart
Make it restart, make it restart
Colour my heart
I want it more than I ever knew
The blackest lily, the blackest pony
Won't protect my heart from you, oh, oh, oh

I didn't know the day was
I didn't know what the time it was
I didn't know what my heart would do
And I was afraid of nothing when you called
Called me on the telephone

Colour my heart, colour my heart
Make it restart, make it restart
Colour my heart
I want it more than I ever knew, oh
Oh, the blackest lily, the blackest pony
Won't protect my heart from you, oh

Colour my heart, colour my heart
Make it restart, make it restart
Colour my heart
I want it more than I ever knew
Oh the blackest lily, the blackest pony
Won't protect my heart from you, oh, oh, oh

Closer

I don't want to give you up
I don't want to hold you up
I don't want ambiguous
I just know that I've had enough

I want you to travel with me
Lay loose and let your mind go free
Show you things that you've never seen
But you just got to go with me

Oh, your love is so good that I want to show you
Don't make me responsible for something that you can't find
Oh, your loving is so good
So good that

Closer
I wanna, I wanna
Intimate
I wanna, I wanna
Near at hand
I wanna, I wanna
I wanna get close you, baby
Experienced
I wanna, I wanna
Generous
Lay down what's impeding you
ĎCause I wanna get close to you, baby

I don't want to give you up
But I'm tired of the pull and push
I'm tired of the making up
Don't you feel that you've had enough

I want you to journey with me
Explore all the hidden scenes
I don't mind just a bit of tension
But we've got to move in the same direction

Oh, your love is so good that I want to show you
Don't make me responsible for something that you can't find
Oh, your loving is so good
So good that

Closer
I wanna, I wanna
Intimate
I wanna, I wanna
Near at hand
I wanna, I wanna
I wanna get close you, baby
Experienced
I wanna, I wanna
Generous
Lay down what's impeding you
ĎCause I wanna get close to you, baby

I wanna, I wanna get
I wanna, I wanna get closer

You just got to go with me
Your love is so good that I want to show you
Don't make me responsible for something that you can't find
Oh, your loving is so good
So good that

Closer

Intimate
I wanna, I wanna
Near at hand
I wanna, I wanna
I wanna get close you, baby
Experienced

Generous

Closer

I wanna get close, I wanna
I wanna get close, I wanna
I wanna get close
Closer
I wanna get close to you baby
Baby
I want it bad, want it bad

Love's On Its Way

Oh father
I wish I had understanding
Never known more
Never been so well informed
We know the score
Heard it all before
But I've never felt more powerless

There's so much blood on the streets
So much hope refused
So much grainy teenage photographs on the evening news

Oh, when everywhere's violence
Silently I go

Love's on its way
I hope it won't be too late

When the day comes
And I've counted all my sins
How many I'll see
I want to be able
To say that I did more, more than pray
I did more
Than just spend my money
Just writing letters
Than just going out marching
I did more than talking
And saying the right thing
Wearing the right thing
It's time for an uprising

Love's on its way
Hope it won't be too late

Love's on its way
Love's on its way
Love's on its way
Hope it won't be too late

I Would Like To Call It Beauty

So young for death
We walk in shoes too big
But you play it like a poet
Like you always did

And I lay face upturned
On the palm of God
Pushed on by the fingertips of dreams
They haunted me, consoling me

And I would like to call, call it beauty,
Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
And I would like to call it beauty, beauty, beauty, beauty

You slept a sigh like the angels speak
And we danced into tomorrow on bleeding feet
And I had thought that I would die here
But you pushed me on
You pushed me on
You pushed me on

Oh and I would like to call, call it beauty
Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
And I would like to call it beauty, beauty, beauty, beauty

You can keep it all locked up in your leaden chest
Or you can lay mouth open on the water's edge
But all your angels and your God will stitch and wash you

Oh I would like to call, call it beauty
Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
And I would like to call it beauty, beauty, beauty, beauty

Paris Nights / New York Mornings

Breakfast at Mickey's, make-up still on
Elbows on the greasy table cloth
One more coffee and one last cigarette

Smiling at the rain Ďcause you hold me close
My best dress on underneath this old coat
Walking down Bleecker no one is awake yet

And almost seven hours
Nothing but clouds
And it's enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
So pick me up and take me out

Oh we crash into love-filled nights
Paris nights and New York mornings
Oh we race till we're out of time
Paris nights and New York mornings
And now that oh you've taken me up so high
Paris nights and New York mornings
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

I could see the lights from the restaurant
I couldn't quite perfect that nonchalance
Paris and champagne with one brown sugar cube

And we danced while the band played "She's not there"
Kissed me in the rain by the Rue Voltaire
It's a perfectly good way to ruin those silk shoes

Still, seven hours
Nothing but clouds
And it's enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
For each other and for the lovers

Oh we crash into love-filled nights
Paris nights and New York mornings
Oh we race till we're out of time
Paris nights and New York mornings
And now that oh you've taken me up so high
Paris nights and New York mornings
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

Oh you change and you grow
But we were young
But we were young and we didn't know
We didn't know

Oh we crash into love-filled nights
Paris nights and New York mornings
Oh we race till we're out of time
Paris nights and New York mornings
And now that oh you've taken me up so high
Paris nights and New York mornings
Don't let me down
Don't let me down...

Paper Dolls

You have incredible eyes
And all the boys will go wild for you
But I was scared
In case you made me made do those things
Oh would you, oh would you believe me
That I was your fool
ĎCause I've been lying awake at night
Wondering where you are now
And if that metal turned out right

All my life, all my life
She said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something, yeah
I have tried, I have tried
She said it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something

You wore indelible smiles
You were divorced from inside they said
But I was disturbed when I heard that it's not what you preferred
It gets to the point they expected
And who are you to disappoint them anyway
Time will get you in the end
Just when you shook off that regret
Around the corner comes a memory in a fur coat to talk about it

All my life, all my life
She said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something, yeah
I have tried, I have tried
She said it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something

Many words that have been spoken
Cut me out like paper dolls
Made me into something different
Something I could not dissolve
So far over don't let those words control you

All my life, all my life
She said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something, yeah
I have tried, I have tried
She said it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something

Diving For Hearts

Till then I wasnít alive
I longed for you
Like the lovesick moon pulls the tide
So I peeled of my skin
I just slipped right in
And I become alive

íCause down here thereís no fear
Thereís no cause for panic
Thereís just bright cold calm
I feel no harm
This underwater feelingís abandon
And it fires my heart

Was it emotion
Or should I keep on diving
Keep on diving down
Under this ocean
I long to keep on diving
íTil my heart is found
Itís got a hold on me
Canít forget the things Iíve seen, oh

Worlds will all end
And new worlds will begin
Itís a thought so stark
We're at once determinant
Yet so insignificant
Spinning out in the velvet dark

Still down here thereís no fear
Thereís no cause for panic
Thereís just this bright cold calm
Yeah it leaves a scar
So show me how to find it again
If Iím lost show me where you are

Was it emotion
Or should I keep on diving
Keep on diving down
Under this ocean
I long to keep on diving
íTil my heart is found
Itís got a hold on me
Canít forget the things Iíve seen, oh

You have sheltered me
In the heart of the sea
Deep calls unto the deep
You break a sweat over me

To be wise
And to run
Over the stones into the sea

Somethingís got a hold on me
Canít forget the things Iíve seen

The Sea

I never knew you were standing on the shore
It says everything
Explains everything
That from then on it couldn't be just like before
It says everything
Changes everything

So don't you stand there wishing your life would fade away
And don't you go round with anyone who makes you feel ashamed

Goodbye paradise
I hope there's something you could try
Goodbye
You're so changed that you'd give it all away
Goodbye
Goodbye

I saw your face in the faded light
Said everything
Explained everything

It haunts all your days
And it comes to you at night
You did everything
Blame anything

But don't you cut those ribbons to take away the pain
And don't you go round with that same old crowd
They make you feel ashamed

Goodbye paradise
I hope there's something you could try
Goodbye
You're so changed that you'd give it all away
Goodbye
Goodbye paradise

The sea
The majestic sea
Breaks everything
Crushes everything
Cleans everything
Takes everything
From me

The Heart Speaks In Whispers

The Skies Will Break

And the heart speaks in whispers
And the heart speaks in whispers

And so it's all over
So they've already run
And we all fall down
And the clouds, they blot out the sun
Very soon your world could be different
But you've got your mind set on silence, silence, silence
You copy you paste you lose
And the skies will break for you, my friend
The skies will break for you, my friend
And the waves will part, the seas will rend
The skies will break for you, my friend
And the skies will break for you, my friend
It won't be long until it ends
Singing "whoa" "whoa" "whoa" "whoa"

But the heart speaks in whispers
You've got to listen

And the crowd is so loud
It feels like they'll drown you out
And the waves crash down
And there's chaos all around
Don't let your mind rest on violence, violence, violence

And the skies will break for you, my friend
The skies will break for you, my friend
And the waves will part, the seas will rend
The skies will break for you, my friend
And the skies will break for you, my friend
It won't be long until it ends
Singing "whoa" "whoa" "whoa" "whoa"

'Cause the heart speaks in whispers
And the heart speaks in whispers
And the heart speaks in whispers
And the heart speaks in whispers
You've got to listen

Oh, the skies will break for you, my friend
The skies will break for you, my friend
And the waves will part, the seas will rend
The skies will break for you, my friend
And the skies will break for you, my friend
It won't be long until it ends
Singing "whoa" "whoa" "whoa" "whoa"

Bright lights
Bright lights
Streaming, we're golden
Sunlight, sunlight
Revealing, we're golden

And you will know
And you will know it
And you will know
And you will know it
And you will know

Hey, I Won't Break Your Heart

Here in the twilight of one endless summer
You've got me waiting like a teenaged girl
My eyes wide with starlight
But folded in my new dress, the memories
Love is more hesitant a second time

Hey, I won't break your heart
Like you broke mine

This time around I won't cling to those paper crowns
I won't tear you down
This time I'll listen like it's love's first secret
You copy you paste you lose
So come bring your love here with all its mistakes
Speak to me softly like lovers do
Here are the fragments I saved for you

Hey, I won't break your heart
Like you broke mine

Oh, it seems it's easy to love you
You go to my head just like wine

All the bitterness, it has left me
So don't leave me standing here
I won't be satisfied
Unless you come here and stay by my side

I won't break, I won't break your heart
I won't break, I won't break your heart

It goes so fast
And it goes so fast
And it goes so fast
All that I know is that I love you
All that I know is that I love you
All that I know

I won't break your heart

I won't break
I won't break your heart
I won't break
I won't break your heart

Been to the Moon

When we first collided
The timing wasn't right
I showed you the signs
You disappeared into the shadows
Now you're back again
Telling me you do
You do

Don't you recognize
A fellow astronaut
We've been here before
Our movements are elliptical
And when you move towards me
You make me lose my cool
It's cruel

I've been to the moon, don't tempt me
I've been where you are, God help me
I've been to the moon and stars for you
And now it's your turn to go for me too

Your words are sparkling
Like the galaxy
It's not enough for me
If you're really mad about me
Show me something real
Prove to me you're true, oh, do

Oh, I've been to the moon don't tempt me
I've been where you are, God help me
I've been to the moon and stars for you
And now it's your turn to go for me too
You copy you paste you lose
So help me, what's the golden rule
Somebody better let me know
What's a girl to do
Gone too far, can't hide my heart
Why don't you just show me what to do

Oh, I love you, I want you
It's such a long way
Up to the moon
I've been to the moon and the stars for you
I know that, I know that
It's your turn, prove it

I've been to the moon don't tempt me
I've been where you are, God help me
I've been to the moon and stars for you
And now it's your turn to go for me too

I've been to the moon so gently
I've been where you are, God help me
I've been to the moon and stars for you
Now it's your turn to prove that you're true

Tell Me

Young one
Eyes wide
The world is yours
Hold tight

Make mistakes
Get it right
There'll be heartbreaks
And blue skies

But feel it all
Walk tall
Don't close your eyes
Burn bright

We're dancing
In the dark
Now and then we glimpse the stars

Tell me, do you like it
Tell me you're on fire
Tell me that you're right
Where you belong
We can make our own rules
Power to the people
Turn it into something you can love
You copy you paste you lose
This is for the dreamers
Let's make our own scene
Let's make our own scene

This is for the dreamers
We've got to believe it
We've got to believe it

Sometimes
The world seems
Distant
Out of reach

It's happening
Behind a screen
And we're outside
Looking in

But we are
The dreamers
The changers
The people

All connected
You and me
All we have is all we need

Tell me, do you like it
Tell me you're on fire
Tell me that you're right
Where you belong
We can make our own rules
Power to the people
Turn it into something you can love

This is for the dreamers
Let's make our own scene
Let's make our own scene

This is for the dreamers
We've got to believe it
We've got to believe it

Oh, the world is yours
So hold on tight
Change your life
Your times
We can make it what we like
It's for the dreamers

This is for the dreamers
This is for the dreamers
This is for the dreamers

Tell me, do you like it
Tell me you're on fire
Tell me that you're right
Where you belong
If you want to change it
Go ahead and change it
Turn it into something you can love

Tell me do you like it
Tell me you're on fire
Tell me that you're right
Where you belong
We can make our our rules
Power to the people
Turn it into something you can love

Stop Where You Are

Tender is the light that shines on you
Gentle is the morning made anew
Delicate, the grace we've come into
My love
Wonder why you wish your life away
Waiting for the perfect boat to take
Waiting for the perfect wind to sail away

Life's shining around you
Don't miss a day
If you're caught up in the chase
You hold your happiness away from you

Stop where you are
Under fading stars
This is the world we've made
There is no better place, it's true
Light a fire where you are
You copy you paste you lose
Underneath a blanket of the cold
Lying in the dark, your seeds will grow
Miracles just like a winter rose will be

Give up all the things you can't control
Still yourself and watch them come and go
Wherever you are, you'll find you're home at last

Everything glitters around you
Don't miss a day
The moon on the lake
The smell in the air when it rains
The people you can share with
The feeling you get when you're almost there

Stop where you are
Under fading stars
This is the world we've made
There is no better place, it's true
Light a fire where you are

Can't stop the wild wind roaring
You can stop my poor heart from calling out
Light a fire where you are

Stop where you are
Under fading stars
This is the world we've made
There is no better place, it's true
Light a fire where you are

Green Aphrodisiac

Laying in the grass in the afternoon
Something kind of magical in sunlight
Flowers uncurl in the garden
Shoots are coming up again, it's spring time

It's new like the day I saw your eyes
Green like the leaves unfurling up against a blue sky
Blossom it falls in a slow dance
Swaying got me in a trance, so high

It's all green, all new
And I want to spend it with you

Lost in your wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
Kiss me, your lips taste of honey
Songbirds and bees start a-humming
You copy you paste you lose
Come to my wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
The same thing that grows in the garden
Flows in me and you

I want to go where all the rainbows start their flow

Just when I thought it was not to be
Holiest of mysteries, it's all green
And everything that I have planted has grown
And all it needed was time
Earth, water, and the sunlight
Down to the middle

Lost in your wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
Kiss me, your lips taste of honey
Songbirds and bees start a-humming

Come to my wonderland
Green aphrodisiac
The same thing that grows in the garden
Flows in me and you

I want to go where all the rainbows start their flow
How could I know it was sunday
How could I know you would take over my mind
I want to know where all the flowers unfold
'Cause I know that
The same thing grows in the garden, flows in me and you

Aphrodisiac, green aphrodisiac
I want to go with you
Where it's green and all the flowers grow
All the water flows, all the memories go
Just for the afternoon, oh baby

Aphrodisiac, green aphrodisiac
Kiss me your lips taste of honey
Songbirds and bees start humming
Oh, out to the garden
I'm, I'm fooling around with you

I want you there
When I get out
Where's the grass is wet and the lilac is in the air again

Horse Print Dress

I wear my horse print dress
And though my hair's still wet
You kiss me on my neck
I haven't told anybody yet

We spend our days and night
Lying by firelight
And your pretty eyes, looking at me so bright
Like I'm your one delight

You've got me spinning, spinning out
Don't think that I can let go now

Baby
I'm taken with your love
I'm flying
Spin this kaleidoscope round
'Cause I don't want to come down
You copy you paste you lose
I wear my lipstick pressed
Maraschino cherry red
And we wear our hair a mess
'Cause we just got out of bed

This isn't my first romance
But it hit me like an avalanche
I tried to talk about it on the phone
But you're so different from the ones I've known

Oh, you've got me spinning, spinning, I
I don't think I can let go now

Baby
I'm taken with your love
I'm flying
Spin this kaleidoscope round
'Cause I don't want to come down

How, how
How can I just let you go
When I don't want to come down
Spin this kaleidoscope round

What you give, what you get
What you give, what you get
What you give, what you get
What you give
Oh, I can't let you go

And baby, I'm taken with your love
I'm flying
I don't want to come down
Don't think I'll ever come down

I'm, I'm flying
I don't want to come down
Don't never let me come down

Do You Ever Think of Me

Do you ever think of me
Do I ever cross your mind
Does my memory linger
And flood the room for you
Like when I'm alone and I've thought of you

Lazy Sunday afternoons
The radio will play a tune
And I can't help but wonder
Just where you are
Although we're miles apart
'Cause you know that

Somewhere in this crowded world
Somewhere we can be alone
We'd set the world on fire
Time burns down like birthday candles
Don't you want to go my love
We can make it all alright
Why does it have to end
You copy you paste you lose
If only you could read my mind
You'd see you name a thousand times
You paint me as an angel
But I'm just a woman
Who's in love
Don't play a waiting game
When it comes to us

'Cause you know that
Somewhere in this crowded world
Somewhere we can be alone
We'd set the world on fire
Time burns down like birthday candles
Don't you want to go my love
We can make it all alright

Somewhere in this crowded world
Somewhere we can be alone
We'd set the world on fire
Time burns down like birthday candles
Don't you want to go my love
We can make it all alright

Do you ever think of me
Do you ever think of me at all

Caramel

It isn't love, but pain, that makes you brave
A secret wire you walk but still remain devoted
Quaking like we're old lovers
Aching in the dark
Wondering, who could be the one
To melt your heart
Well I've seen love, vast as oceans
Melt like blood

I see your silhouette across the night
It makes me sad 'cause you're so beautiful
Lover, don't wait too long
After all this bitterness
You copy you paste you lose
It tastes like caramel
After all this bitterness
Delicious as caramel

And it's like seeing the sun again
After years of only pouring rain on my soul

It doesn't matter now
Just to know it's possible
Is all I ever dreamed
You give me strength I don't know why
You resurrect me from the pyre
And it's the sweet death of your pain
After all this bitterness
Caramel

There's nothing I could do to make it right
And nothing I could say to make the dark seem brighter
But here's the one that paints wishes
Riding on a star
Here's the one that can make a fire
From just a spark
Lure me out, in the desert
And call me home

It tastes like caramel
After all this bitterness
Delicious as caramel

And it's like seeing the sun again
After years of only pouring rain on my soul

It doesn't matter now
Just to know it's possible
Is all I ever dreamed
You give me strength I don't know why
Resurrect me from the pyre
And it's the sweet death of your pain
After all this bitterness
Caramel

Taken By Dreams

We move forward over land
It's too hard to see
It's too far ahead so you hold my hand
And we go to a place that only lovers know
And we go to a place that we've discovered
I'm like a laser beam
Cutting through everything
I'm in my fantasy
I can do anything
Taken by dreams
Taken by dreams
You copy you paste you lose
Feeling you breathing
Roar like a heartbeat
Catch me I'm a roller coaster
Freedom and poetry
Taken by dreams
Taken by dreams

And if you ever knew how lost I was before
You wouldn't recognise me
Now I'm on my way
And I'm grateful I can say
I want to go
Cut me loose
Cut me loose
Let me run to the stars
There're not so far
Illuminate our way
You and I we're on our way
Come on let's go

We travel into the night
We cross galaxies
We run we leap and we fly
It's not hard
'Cause we're called by a music we don't understand
And we're drawn by the glow of a fire

I'm electricity
Burning bright energy
Catch me on the one, two, three
I can do anything
Taken by dreams
Taken by dreams

Feeling you breathing
Roar like a heartbeat
Catch me I'm a roller coaster
Freedom and poetry
Taken by dreams
Taken by dreams

And if you ever knew how lost I was before
You wouldn't recognise me
Now I'm on my way
And I'm grateful I can say
I want to go
Cut me loose
Cut me loose
Let me run to the stars
There're not so far
Illuminate our way
You and I we're on our way
Come on let's go

And it's the sun and moon and gold
Seeds, vibrations
Spinning out in space
Gone to another place
And in a million years from now
We're tiny stars across the Universe
Trembling, singing, ďAmenĒ
Come on let's go
Come on let's go
Taken by dreams
Taken by dreams

Walk On

Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the heavy storm
You copy you paste you lose
Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the storm

Keep moving, keep moving on
Though you can't find your way
There will be a light
There will be a light that shines in the darkness
Keep moving on

There's a way, there's a way
There's a different way than you came from
There's another way
You don't have to go back the same way you came from

There's a light, there's a light
That shines in the darkest night
There's a whisper in the silence
You may be drowning and find you can breathe underwater
There's a whisper in the silence

There's a secret
And it flows
And it flows
In the darkness
You can find your way
You can find your way in the darkness

The stars and the constellations know your name
The stars and the constellations know your name

No one is forgotten here
No one is forgotten here
And no time is wasted time
No time is wasted time

There's always a lesson
Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the heavy storm...

You could be my teacher

Walk on through the heavy storm
Walk on through the heavy storm...

Night

Oh, the night is full of miracles
And silvered with cold
High up on a hill the rest submit to sleep
And we are alone

Can't you see the path that I've chosen
Won't you hold my hand until it's over
And love has created

There was a cool wind
There was a sharp sting
But you held your courage
What did the stars sing
The night that I looked at you
The night that I looked at you
It was more than my heart could do
The night when I looked at
You copy you paste you lose
I folded you a prayer with words so fine
How could you refuse
My tears, they fell like diamonds in the light
The wind was so cruel
But I can see the kindness that burns in you
I regard the way that you hold me as wonderful, magical

There was a cool wind
There was a sharp sting
But you held your courage
What did the stars sing
The night when I looked at you
The night when I looked at you?
It was more than my heart could do
The night when I looked at

In the Dark

Everybody sees it
I know they can feel it
Our subtle disagreements
The gesture that you're leaving
I know you're on your way
I see how you watch those planes
In the dark
In the dark

We stare into the silence
We focus on the distance
I watch the sky fall in
Anything could happen

But when the lights go out
Are we just strangers
In the dark
We're in the dark

Kiss me
Hold me to your body
If you'll miss me
Don't say a word
'Cause I'll fall apart
Fall apart
Touch me, fold me in your arms
If you love me
Only for a minute
I'll fall apart
Fall apart

Effortless at high school
Now everything is different
We were just children
Playing at lovers
When did it get so hard
Remember those promises we made
In the dark
In the dark

Kiss me
Hold me to your body
If you'll miss me
Don't say a word
'cause I'll fall apart
Fall apart
Touch me, fold me in your arms
If you love me
Only for a minute
I'll fall apart
Fall apart

What joy
What pain
I lost my way
And it happened in the dark

Kiss me
Hold me to your body
If you'll miss me
Don't say a word
'Cause I'll fall apart
Fall apart

Ice Cream Colours

Dancing at your apartment
Under electric lights
Sneaking out of this party
Running into the night
You copy you paste you lose
The sky is all crystal
We're animate we're intimate we're wild
And right at this moment
I can see the past and future in your eyes

Oh why
Anytime I feel this rush
I'm overwhelmed
It's chemical
I don't know why
I don't know why

You make me dream in ice cream colours
Crystal waves
Through my brain
I don't know why
I don't know why

Laying out in the sunlight
Swimming in golden rays
Our days go by so slowly
But the nights spin fast
My senses ablaze

I'm making a collage
I'm taken with the posibilities
You pull me in closer
And happiness is burning like a neon dream

Oh why
Anytime I feel this rush
I'm overwhelmed
It's chemical
I don't know why
I don't know why

You make me dream in ice cream colours
Crystal waves
Through my brain
I don't know why
I don't know why

The distance I've travelled
The distance is immeasurable in time
But none of that matters
When I can see the past and future
In your eyes, oh why

Anytime I feel this rush
I'm overwhelmed
It's chemical
I don't know why
I don't know why

You make me dream in ice cream colours
Crystal waves
Through my brain
I don't know why
I don't know why

High

I know you're probably expecting some poetic words
About love and the sun and the Universe
But I don't need to explain
I don't have to describe this

I hardly mention your name when I'm out with my friends
While they go over and over their dates again
They can see in my eyes
They can tell by my smile

'Cause when I met you I was frozen
Nothing left my heart was broken
You came along
Just like the perfect song
You copy you paste you lose
My darling you
You make me do everything differently
Your love is taking me high as the moon
Don't want to move
'Cause I don't want to break the spell

Now that you're mine
I'm staying quiet
'Cause my words are useless
They only confuse us
So why even try
When it's so right
And I don't want to break the spell

I know they probably want me to open the door
And tell it all to the world like I've done before
But it's the things that you do
When there's nobody watching

Shall we turn off our phones
Shall we close all the curtains
'Cause I don't really feel like going out tonight

Can we hide from the world
All alone it's so perfect

'Cause when I met you I was broken
Nothing left my heart was opened
You came along and brightened up my world

My darling you
You make me do everything differently
Your love is taking me high as the moon
Don't want to move
'Cause I don't want to break the spell

Now that you're mine
I'm staying quiet
'Cause my words are useless
They only confuse us
So why even try
When it's so right
And I don't want to break the spell

Now I'm in a daze
Lost in time and space
And this can't be replaced
I don't want to break it
This is something new
A beautiful cocoon
That we've come into

My darling you
You make me do everything differently
Your love is taking me high as the moon
Don't want to move
'Cause I don't want to break the spell

Now that you're mine
I'm staying quiet
'Cause my words are useless
They only confuse us
So why even try
When it's so right
And I don't want to break the spell

Push On for the Dawn

Sometimes when I close my eyes
I see your face and I see mine
Warm as the sun
And I don't know if I'm waking or sleeping
I don't know if I'm thinking or dreaming
I just follow the sun
Sometimes when I'm in the dark
The thought of you is a tiny spark
Keeps me walking in the dark
Push on for the dawn

The night is silent
But dawn comes blazing in
It blooms like a flower
It burns to the heart of me
You copy you paste you lose
And everyday is our adventure
Keep pushing on
For everyday I want to thank you
You're pushing me on
'Cause you bring me joy

Everyday is a new beginning
Everyday is a chance to start again
Till time descends like a curtain, calling
"It's the end"

Sometimes when the pain is gone
We move really slow just to carry on
You can go ahead if you want to
But I'll be a river
My head in the mountains
My feet on the shore

Midnight when the lake is black
The moon and stars are reflected back
Into the night sky
So is my life, Lord
Reflected back to you

The life that was never mine
A move on the water
A whisper into the night

And everyday is our adventure
Keep pushing on
For everyday I want to thank you
You're pushing me on
'Cause you bring me joy

Everyday is a new beginning
Everyday is a chance to start again
Till time descends like a curtain calling
"It's the end"

When love unveils its heart and shows you it is friend
When all I want to do is be dancing again

Keep pushing me on

Non Albums Tracks

Another Rainy Day

I got taken in
We feasted on olives from the fridge
We stood the whole lonely day
We made love all afternoon
ĎTil the stars went blue

You wrote a ballad
We dined on oysters and champagne
That's it seemed like
We connect in so many ways
So easy, I must say

Why am I so shy around you
Why am I so shy
Why do I take care to astound you
Why do I even try

Another rainy day
We sat inside by the radiator
Watching old black and white films
Where everybody sang

You played in my solitude
Didn't get dressed 'til two
The rain says all
I wrote this song on my guitar
But it didn't turn out right
So we just connected in other ways
So easy, I must say

Why am I so shy around you
Why am I so shy
Why do I take care to astound you
Why do I even try

Why am I so shy around
Why am I so shy
Why do I take care
Why do I even try

Daydreaming

(Aretha Franklin cover)

Daydreaming and I'm thinking of you
Daydreaming and I'm thinking of you
Daydreaming and I'm thinking of you
Daydreaming and I'm thinking of you
Look at my mind floating away

He's the kind of guy that would say
Hey, baby let's get away
Let's go somewhere, huh
Well I don't care
He's the kind of guy that you give your everything
You trust your heart, share all of your love
Till death do you part

I want to be what he wants
When he wants it and whenever he needs it
When he's lonesome and feeling love starved
I'll be there to feed it
I'm loving him a little bit more each day
Turns me right on when I hear him say

Hey, baby, let's get away
Let's go somewhere huh
Baby can we
Well, I don't care
Hey baby let's get away
Let's go somewhere huh
Baby can we
Well, I don't care

I wanna be what he wants when he wants it
And whenever he needs it
And when he's lonesome and feeling loved starved
I'll be there to please him
Loving him a little bit more each day
It turns me right on when I hear him say

Hey, baby, let's get away
Let's go somewhere huh
Baby can we
Well, I don't care

Hey baby let's get

Emeraldine

( Like a Star EP )

I awake to the drip drop of icicles
Melting outside my window
Everything was new

I had noticed a bird and seen
Cherry blossom was falling like confetti
What is happening to me these days

I, I got intuition, oh I, I had my suspicions
I'm in love with you
It feels like springtime

Emeraldine, apple seed, olive green intense
Colors unfurl like petals in a time lapse sequence
Feels like something in embryo
My heart melts like two inches of snow in April's glow
What's this urgency
What's this heat I'm feeling
Could I say I'm dreaming
Do I change my ways
What is happening to me these days

I, I got intuition, oh I, I had my suspicions
I'm in love with you
I, I got intuition, oh I, I had my suspicions
I'm in love with you
It feels like springtime

Golden touch

( Razorlight Cover - Live Radio1's - One Big Weekend )

I know a girl with the golden touch
She's got enough, she's got too much
But i know, you wouldn't mind
You could have it all if you wanted
You could have it all if it mattered so much

But then all they know is how to put you down
When you're there, they're your friend
But then when you're not around
They say, 'Oh,she is changed'
You know what they mean
Well they mean,they're just jealous
Because they never do the things
That they wish that they could do so well

That kind of girl, yeah she's never alone
You leave her thousand messages on her phone
But you know you never get through
You could have it all if you wanted yeah,
you could have it all if it matters to you,

But then all, they know is how to put you down
When you're there, they're your friend,then
When you're not around
They say, 'Oh, she is changed'
Oh you know what that means
Well it means they're just jealous
but they'll never do the things
That they wish that they could do so well

I saw my girl with the golden touch
Give them a taste but not too much
I just can't listen to the words of fools
But don't give away too much
Someone will need your golden touch

Because all, they know is how to put you down
When you're there, they're your friend,then
When you're not around
They say, 'Oh, she is changed'
Oh you know what that means
Well it means they're just jealous
But they'll never do the things
That they wish that they could do so well

How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)

(James Taylor cover / Paul Weller and Corinne Bailey Rae / Live at BBC Radio 6 Music)

I needed the shelter of someone's arms and there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs and there you were
With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion

I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night
Wondering where would I be without you in my life
Everything is such a bore
It seems all the things I did I'd done before
But you brighten up all my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways

I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

You've been better to me than I've been to myself
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else

I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby

How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
I want to stop

I'm Losing You

( John Lennon / Instant Karma The Campaign To Save Darfur CD )

Here in some stranger's room
Late in the afternoon
What am I doing here at all
Ain't no doubt about it
I'm losing you
I'm losing you

Somehow the wires are crossed
Communication's lost
Can't even get you on the telephone
Don't wanna talk about it
I'm losing you
I'm losing you

Here in the valley of indecision
I don't know what to do
I feel you slipping away
I feel you slipping away
I'm losing you
I'm losing you

You say you're not getting enough
But I remind you of all that bad stuff
Well tell me what am I supposed to do, yeah
Oh just put a bandaid on it
And stop the bleeding now
And stop the bleeding now

I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Well, well, well

I know I hurt you then
But that was way back when
Well, do you still have to carry that cross, oh
Don't wanna talk about it
I'm losing you
I'm losing you
I'm losing you
I'm losing you
Losing you
Losing you

It Be's That Way Sometime

(Nina Simone cover / The Sea Japanese Bonus Track)

When your guy has got his hat
And made himself hard to find
It doesn't mean you should go crazy
But it be's that way sometimes

Find yourself another love
Who will treat you good and kind
Return that love he gives to you
But it also be's that way sometimes

Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby

When you think you've found a love
And you have peace of mind
Somebody else steals his heart
But it also be's that way sometimes

Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby

Find yourself another love
Who will treat you good and kind
Return that love he gives to you
But it also be's that way sometimes

Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby

It be's that way sometimes
Yeah, it be's that way sometimes

I Wanna Be Your Lover

( Prince Cover / The Love EP )

I ain't got no money
I ain't like those other guys you hang around
It's kind of funny but they always seem to let you down
I get discouraged cause I never see you anymore
I need your love babe that's all I'm living for

Don't want to pressure you baby
But all I ever wanted to do
I wanna be your lover
I want to be the only one who makes you come running
I wanna be your lover
I want to turn you on, turn you out
All night long, make you shout
Lover, I want to be the only one you come for

I wanna be your brother
I wanna be your mother and your sister too
That can do the things that I'll do to you
And I get discouraged cause you treat me just like a child
They say I'm so shy
But with you I just go wild

Don't want to pressure you baby
But all I ever wanted to do
I wanna be your lover
I want to be the only one who makes you come running
I wanna be your lover
I want to turn you on, turn you out
All night long, make you shout
I want to be the only one you come for

I Won't Let You Lie To Yourself

Loving you is hard
Loving' you is wonderful
When you're holding back
Is it so impossible

To control what's on your mind
And you should be here

You shouldn't be making me cry
(No making me cry)

So don't go saying
Contemplating
That Iím better off alone
ĎCause you're amazing
You drive me crazy
When you gonna know
You're too proud to let it show
But I won't let you lie to yourself

Little Wing

(Jimi Hendrix cover / The Sea Japanese Bonus Track)

Well, she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that's running round
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairytales
Fly on little wing

When I'm sad, she comes to me
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
? it's alright, she says it's alright
Take anything you want from me
Anything

Well, she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that is running round
But it's alright, it's alright
Take anything you want from me
Anything, anything

Well, it's alright, it's alright
Well, it's alright, it's alright
Well, it's alright, it's alright
Well, it's alright

Low Red Moon

( Belly cover / The Love EP )

So what, you think this is usual
Strange moon, strange land, strange man
Hold the hands of tiny horses
Hold them, hold them kindly, man

Low Red Moon
How can you sleep like a baby
Sleep like baby
But you shine so different on another
You shine different on another
Strange moon

I look up, and I see
The raising of an old hope
Brave and tattered
A shining knight with shining eyes
He shines around me brightly
So now, I say this is beautiful
I think you are strange

Low red moon
How can you sleep like a baby
Sleep like a baby
But you shine so different on another
You shine different on another

Strange moon, strange land, strange
You made me cry when I was young
And I was young
Now I got strong arms
Strong arms for a girl
And I say
He belongs to me
He belongs to me
He's a human bed of roses

Munich

( Editors Cover / Radio 1's Live Lounge )

I'm so glad I've found this
I'm so glad I did
I'm so glad I've found this
I'm so glad I did

People are fragile things, you should know by now
Be careful what you put them through
People are fragile things, you should know by now
You'll speak when you're spoken to
You'll speak when you're spoken to

It breaks when you don't force it
It breaks when you don't try
It breaks if you don't force it
It breaks if you don't try

People are fragile things, you should know by now
Careful what you put them through
People are fragile things, you should know by now
You'll speak when you're spoken to

With one hand you calm me
With one hand I'm still
With one hand you calm me
With one hand I'm still

People are fragile things, you should know by now
You'll speak when you're spoken to
People are fragile things, you should know by now
Careful what you put them through
Careful what you put them through

You'll speak when you're spoken to
He'll speak when he's spoken to

My love

( Paul McCartney & Wings cover / The Love EP )

And when I go away
I know my heart can stay with my love
It's understood
It's in the hands of my love
And my love does it good
My love does it good

And when the cupboards bare
I'll still find something there with my love
It's understood
It's everywhere with my love
And my love does it good
My love does it good

Oh I love, my love
I love, my love
I love, my love
Only my love does it good to me

Don't ever ask me why
I never say goodbye to my love
It's understood
It's everywhere with my love
And my love does it good
My love does it good

Oh I love, my love
I love, my love
I love, my love
Only my love does it good to me

One Night of Sin

( Tribute To Fats Domino )

One night of sin, yeah
Is what I'm now paying for
The things I did and I saw
Would make the earth stand still

Don't call my name
It makes me feel so ashamed
I lost my sweet helping hand
I got myself to blame

Always lived, a very quiet life
Ain't never did no wrong
But now I know that living with you
Be too lonely too long

Don't call my name
It makes me feel so ashamed
I lost my sweet helping hand
I got myself to blame

Always lived, a very quiet life
Ain't never did no wrong
But now I know that living with you
Be too lonely too long

Don't call my name
It makes me feel so ashamed
I lost my sweet helping hand
I got myself to blame

I asked my mother
What will I be
Will I be pretty
Will I be rich
Here's what she said to me

Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, que sera, que sera

When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart
What lies ahead
Will we have rainbows
Day after day
Here's what my he said to me

Que sera, sera yeah
Whatever will be, will be
Que sera, sera yeah
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see, no

Now I have Children of my own
They ask their mother
What will I be
Will I be handsome
Will I be rich
I tell them tenderly

Que sera, sera...

River

( Joni Mitchell Cover / Herbie Hancock Featuring Corinne Bailey Rae )

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Since I've been loving you

( Led Zeppelin Cover / Live on tour )

Working from seven to eleven almost every night
It really makes life a drag
I don't think that's right
I've really been the best of fools
I did what I could
'Cause I love you, baby
How I love you, darling
How I love you, baby
How I love you, darling
Oh since I've been loving you
I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh

All my friends keeps telling me
That you're no good
But Lord, Lord, I've been trying to do the very best I could
I've been working from seven to eleven every night
A drag, a drag oh I how drag
Oh since I've been loving you boy
I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh

Said I've been crying
All my tears they fell like rain
Oh fell like rain
They fell like rain
Since they, oh lord
I've been trying to do the very best I could
I've been working from seven to eleven almost every night
A drag, a drag oh I how drag
Oh since I've been loving you boy
I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh

The Scientist

(Coldplay Cover / Fifty Shades Darker OST)

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are

I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh, let's go back to the start

Running in circles
Coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh, take me back to the start

I was just guessing
At numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
copy paste robots kill the internet
Questions of science
Science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh, and I rush to the start

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh take me back to the start

Oh take me back to the start
Oh take me back to the start
Take me back to the start

Young & Foolish

( With The Stix )

I remember sitting back 'cause you said you had something to say
You told me that you had a secret, yeah yeah
Promised to keep it safe
I kept it for you

And we talked and we laughed and we sat in the car watched the world go past
I tried to disuade you but you made up your mind
You were wise at seventeen

And there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
I didn't know why you asked me your gonna do it anyway
Everybody makes mistakes ooh and everybody feels the same
There was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say

They said we grown up to fast, that we acted young and foolishly
I keep all this in mind when i recall the time
I have to disagree, and be here for you

Oh and we talked and laughed
And we sat in the park and watched the world go past
I tried to disuade you but you know what your like
You were wise at seventeen

And there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
I didn't know why you asked me your gonna do it anyway
Everybody makes mistakes ooh and
Everybody feels the same
There was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say

Birds in the tree sing a song for me
About being young and foolish and naive
I haven't changed that much from what i see
I was only trying to make things right

And there was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
I didn't know why you asked me your gonna do it anyway
Everybody makes mistakes oh and everybody feels the same
There was nothing i could do and there was nothing i could say
