B i o g r a p h y
 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

Combining the melodic jangle of post-Smiths indie guitar pop with the lilting, trance-inducing sonic textures of late-'80s dream pop and adding a slight Celtic tint, the Cranberries became one of the more successful groups to emerge from the pre-Brit-pop U.K. indie scene of the early '90s. Led by vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, whose keening, powerful voice is the most distinctive element of the group's sound, the group initially made little impact in the United Kingdom. It wasn't until the lush ballad "Linger" became an American hit in 1993 that the band also achieved mass success in the U.K. Following the success of "Linger," the Cranberries quickly became international stars, as both their 1993 debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, and its 1994 follow-up, No Need to Argue, sold millions of copies and produced a string of hit singles. By the time of their third album, 1996's To the Faithful Departed, they had added distorted guitars to their sonic palette and attempted to make more socially significant music, which resulted in a downturn in the band's commercial fortunes.

Originally, the Cranberries were a band called the Cranberry Saw Us. Brothers Noel and Mike Hogan (guitar and bass, respectively) formed the band in Limerick, Ireland, with drummer Fergal Lawler in 1990. Following the departure of the group's original singer, Niall, the trio placed an advertisement for a female singer. Dolores O'Riordan responded to the advertisement and auditioned by writing lyrics and melodies to some of the band's existing demos. When she returned with a rough version of "Linger," the group hired her on the spot. Shortly after she joined, the band recorded a demo tape and sold it in record stores throughout Ireland. After the original run of 300 copies sold out, the group truncated its name to the Cranberries and sent another demo tape, which featured early versions of both "Linger" and "Dreams," to record companies throughout the U.K. The tape was made at Xeric Studios, which was run by Pearse Gilmore, who would later become their manager. At the time the tape was made, all of the members were still in their late teens.

The demo tape earned the attention of both the U.K. press and record industry, and there soon was a bidding war between major British record labels. Eventually, the group signed with Island Records. the Cranberries headed into the studio with Gilmore as their producer to record their first single, "Uncertain." The title proved to be prophetic, as the band did indeed sound ill at ease on the single, leading to poor reviews in the press, in addition to tensions between the group and Gilmore. Before they were scheduled to record their debut in 1992, the Cranberries discovered that Gilmore had signed a secret deal with Island to improve his studios. The tensions within the band became so great they nearly broke up. Instead, the Cranberries severed all relations with Gilmore, hired Geoff Travis of Rough Trade as their new manager, and hired Stephen Street, who had previously worked with the Smiths, as their new producer. The band's debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, was released in the spring of 1993, followed by a single of "Dreams." Neither the album nor the single gained much attention, nor did the second single, "Linger." In the summer and fall of 1993, the band toured the United States, opening for The The and Suede, respectively; frequently, the Cranberries were given a friendlier reception than either of the headliners. The strong live shows led MTV to put "Linger" into heavy rotation. By the end of the year, the single was on its way to becoming a crossover hit. Eventually, the single reached number eight on the U.S. charts, while the album went double platinum. Everybody Else and "Linger" began to take off in Britain in early 1994; the album eventually peaked at number one during the summer. O'Riordan married the band's tour manager, Don Burton, in a much-publicized ceremony in July 1994. The marriage, as well as the group's videos, emphasized the singer as the focal point of the band.

O'Riordan's position in the group continued to rise with the fall release of the group's second album, No Need to Argue. Boasting a slightly harder, more streamlined sound, yet still produced by Stephen Street, the record debuted at number six on the U.S. charts and eventually outsold its predecessor; within a year it went triple platinum, spawning the number one modern rock hit "Zombie" and the number 11 "Ode to My Family." During the tour for No Need to Argue, rumors began to circulate that O'Riordan was going to leave the band to pursue a solo career, all of which the band vehemently denied. Nevertheless, the rumors persisted until the Cranberries began recording their next album with producer Bruce Fairbairn, who had previously worked with Aerosmith. The resulting album, To the Faithful Departed, was a tougher, more rock-oriented album. Upon its spring 1996 release, the album entered the charts at number six, but its first single, "Salvation," failed to become a hit on par with "Zombie," "Linger," or "Ode to My Family." Consequently, the album slipped down the charts relatively quickly and only went platinum, which was slightly disappointing in light of its two predecessors' multi-platinum status. Bury the Hatchet During the fall of 1996, the group canceled its Australian and European tour, sparking another round of rumors about whether O'Riordan was about to launch a solo career. In 1999, the group released Bury the Hatchet, and in 2003, shortly after the release of a greatest-hits compilation, Stars: The Best of 1992-2002, the Cranberries officially declared that they were taking a break. This finally gave O'Riordan the time she needed to work on her long-talked-about solo album, and Are You Listening hit shelves in 2007. In 2009, O'Riordan released her second solo album, No Baggage. Around the same time, the Cranberries reunited for a North American tour that continued throughout Europe in 2010. Several live albums also appeared in 2010. In 2011, the band began work on a new album in Toronto with longtime producer Street. The resulting album, Roses, appeared in March 2012.

Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We

I still do

I'm not ready for this,
Though I thought I would be.
I can't see the future,
Though I thought I could see.

I don't want to leave you,
Even though I have to.
I don't want to love you.
Oh, I still do.

Need some time to find myself.
I wanna live within.

Can I go my own way?
Can I pray my own way?
I don't want to leave you.
Oh, I need you.

Am I ready for this?
Did I think I would be?
Can I see the future?
No, I can't see.

I don't want to leave you,
Even though I have to.
I don't want to love you.
Oh, I still do.

Ah, la la da da da.
Ah, I still do.

Ah, la la da da da.
Ah, I still do.

Dreams

Oh, my life is changing everyday,

In every possible way.
And oh, my dreams, it's never quiet as it seems,
Never quiet as it seems.

I know I've felt like this before, but now I'm feeling it even more,
Because it came from you.
And then I open up and see the person falling here is me,
A different way to be.

Ah, la da ah...
La...

I want more imposible to ignore,
Imposible to ignore.
And they'll come true, impossible not to do,
Impossible not to do.

And now I tell you openly, you have my heart so don't hurt me.
You're what I couldn't find.
A totally amazing mind, so understanding and so kind;
You're everything to me.

Oh, my life,
Is changing every day,
In every possible way.

And oh, my dreams,
It's never quiet as it seems,
'Cause you're a dream to me,
Dream to me.

Ah, da, da da da, da, la...

Sunday

Oh, do you know,

Where to go, where to go?
Something on your mind,
Wanna leave me behind, wanna leave me behind.

You're spinning me around,
My feet are off the ground.
I dunno where I stand.
Do you have to hold my hand?
You mystify me, you mystify me, you mystify me...

Oh, when he walked into the room,
It happened oh so soon.
I didn't want to know.
Does he really have to go?
You mystify me, you mystify me, you mystify me...

And I couldn't find the words,
To say, "I love you."
And he couldn't find the time,
To say, "I need you."
It wouldn't come out right.
It wouldn't come out right.
Just came out all wrong.

You're spinning me around,
My feet are off the ground.
I dunno where I stand.
Do you have to hold my hand?
You mystify me, you mystify me, you mystify me...

Oh, do you know,
Where to go, where to go?
Something on your mind,
Wanna leave me behind, wanna leave me behind.

Pretty

You're so pretty the way you are.

You're so pretty the way you are.
And you had no reason,
To be so insolent to me.
You're so pretty the way you are.

La, la, you got to say it if you want to,
But you won't change me.
La, la, you got to say it if you want to,
But you won't change me.

You're so pretty the way you are.
You're so pretty the way you are.
And you had no reason,
To be so insolent to me.
You're so pretty the way you are.

La, la, you got to say it if you want to,
But you won't change me.
La, la, you got to say it if you want to,
But you won't change me.

 Waltzing back

Who gave them the right,

Waltzing back into,
Your life, your life, your life?
Now I feel fear,
I wish that they'd never come,
Here, here, here.

What they're gonna do, what they're gonna say,
Taking you away from my life, my life, my life?
What they're gonna do, What they're gonna say,
Taking you away from my life, my life, my life?

La, la, la...

Who gave them the right,
Turning it back into,
Light, light, light?
Then I felt fear,
I wish that they'd never come,
Here, here, here.

What they're gonna do, that they're gonna say,
Taking you away from my life, my life, my life?
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna say,
I don't wanna say, 'cause it's your life, your life, your life.

La, la, la, la...
Who gave them the right, the right, the right? (X 4)

Not sorry

Keep on looking through the window again,

But I'm not sorry if I do insult you.
I'm sad, not sorry, 'bout the way that things went,
And you'll be happy and I'll be forsakin' thee.

I swore I'd never feel like this again,
But you're so selfish, you don't see
What you're doing to me,
I keep on looking through the window again.
No I'm not sorry if I do insult you.
No-o-o, I'm not sorry if I do insult you.

You told me lies, and I sighed, and I sighed, and I sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

I realize, as he sighed, and he sighed and he sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

Keep on looking through the window again,
But I'm not sorry if I do insult you.
I'm sad, not sorry, 'bout the way that things went,
And you'll be happy and I'll be forsakin' thee.

I swore I'd never feel like this again,
But you're so selfish,
You don't see what you're doing to me,
I keep on looking through the window again.
No I'm not sorry if I do detest you.
No-o-o, I'm not sorry if I do detest you.

You told me lies, and I sighed, and I sighed, and I sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

I realize, as he sighed, and he sighed and he sighed.
'Cause you lied, lied, and I cried, yes I cried, yes, I cry, I cry, I try again.

Keep on looking through the window again.
Keep on looking through the window again...

Linger

If you
If you could return
Don't let it burn
Don't let it fade
I'm sure I'm not being rude
But it's just your attitude
It's tearing me apart
It's ruining everything

I swore
I swore I would be true
And honey, so did you
So why were you holding her hand
Is that the way we stand
Were you lying all the time
Was it just a game to you

But I'm in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

Oh I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
But I was wrong, I was wrong

If you
If you could get by
Trying not to lie
Things wouldn't be so confused
And I wouldn't feel so used
But you always really knew
I just wanna be with you

And I'm in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

And I'm in so deep
You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

You know I'm such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

Wanted

Sittin' in an armchair,

With my head between my hands;
I wouldn't have to feel like this
If you'd only understand

Too many misunderstandings
Causing such delay
And if it doesn't work like this
Well I'll try another way

Oh, if this is the way you wanted it
Oh, I didn't understand
Oh, if this is the way you wanted it
Oh, I didn't understand

You know that all I wanted was
To be there by your side
And if you didn't want it
Well you shouldn't have denied

You knew that you were someone special
Right from the start
But if you treat me badly
We'd be better off apart

Oh, if this is the way you wanted it
Oh, I didn't understand
Oh, if this is the way you wanted it
Oh, I didn't understand, understand

Oh, oh oh oh, oh...

Still can't

Still can't recognize the way I feel (I feel, I feel).

Nothing of what you said to me was real.
And you still can't find the strength,
To apologize, (-ogize, -ogize).
You just go on laughing and telling everyone lies.

'Cause you wanted it all, you wanted it all, you wanted it all.
No, and there's nothing at all,
There's nothing at all, there's nothing at all.

Maybe if you could see beyond,
Your nose, (your nose, your nose).
Nothing of what has happened surely shows.
But your ego excelled and then your attitude.
And you went on laughing and shouting,
It's all too shrewd.

'Cause you wanted it all, you wanted it all, you wanted it all.
No, and there's nothing at all,
There's nothing at all, there's nothing at all.

La na na na, la la...

Still can't recognize the way I feel (I feel, I feel).
Nothing of what you said to me was real.
And you still can't find the strength,
To apologize, (-ogize, -ogize).
You just go on laughing and telling everyone lies.

'Cause you wanted it all, you wanted it all, you wanted it all.
No, and there's nothing at all,
There's nothing at all, there's nothing at all.

La na na na, la la...
Wanted it all, wanted it all, you wanted it all. (X 2)

I will always

And now, it's all the same to me,

So be whatever you want to be,
And go wherever you need to go.

And when it all seems like a mistake,
Take whatever you need to take,
And leave the rest for my own sake.

I will always,
Go beside you,
You will always,
Understand.

And now, it's all the same to me,
So be whatever you want to be,
And go wherever you need to go.

And when there's nothing left behind,
Taken whatever you needed to,
And leave it all into my mind.

I will always,
Go beside you,
You will always,
Understand.

How

Look, you're standing alone (Standing alone.)

How ever I should have known, (I should have known.)
Never before, never again,
You will ignore, I will pretend.
Never before, never again,
You will ignore, I will pretend.

In your world, you're alone in your face.
You're alone in your world, you're alone in your face.
How you said you never would leave me alone, oh.
How you said you never would leave me alone.

Now you're just walking away (Walking away),
When you said you always would stay (Always would stay.)
Never before, never again,
You will ignore, I will pretend.
Never before, never again,
You will ignore, I will pretend.

In your world, you're alone in your face.
You're alone in your world, you're alone in your face.
How you said you never would leave me alone, oh.
How you said you never would leave me alone.

Never before, never again,
You will ignore, I will pretend.

In your world, you're alone in your face.
You're alone in your world, you're alone in your face.

How you said you never would leave me alone, oh.
How you said you never would leave me alone
X2

Put me down

Let me take you by the hand,

Away from here to another land.
Oh, this land in which we live,
Where people love and are meant to forgive.

And you always put me wrong,
'Cause you're always putting me down.

I can't take this anymore.
I decided to leave,
Walked out through the door.
Oh, and why do you think I go?
Because you know it can never be so.

And you always put me wrong,
'Cause you're always putting me down.

La, la la la, la la la...

So let me take you by the hand,
Away from here to another land.
Oh, this land in which we live,
Where people love and are meant to forgive.

And you always put me wrong,
'Cause you're always putting me down.

La, la la la, la la la...



No Need To Argue

Ode to my family

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo...

Understand the things I say, don't turn away from me,
'Cause I've spent half my life out there, you wouldn't disagree.
Do you see me? Do you see? Do you like me?
Do you like me standing there? Do you notice?
Do you know? Do you see me? Do you see me?
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness where's when I was young,
And we didn't give a damn,
'Cause we were raised,
To see life as fun and take it if we can.
My mother, my mother,
She hold me, she hold me, when I was out there.
My father, my father,
He liked me, oh, he liked me. Does anyone care?

Understand what I've become, it wasn't my desing.
And people ev'rywhere think, something better than I am.
But I miss you, I miss, 'cause I liked it,
'Cause I liked it, when I was out there. Do you know this?
Do you know you did not find me. You did not find.
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness where's when I was young,
And we didn't give a damn,
'Cause we were raised,
To see life as fun and take it if we can.
My mother, my mother,
She hold me, she hold me, when I was out there.
My father, my father,
He liked me, oh, he liked me.

Does anyone care?... X9
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo...

I can't be with you

Lying in my bed again,
And I cry 'cause you're not here.
Crying in my head again,
And I know that it's not clear.

Put your hands, put your hands,
Inside my face and see that it's just you.
But it's bad and it's mad and it's making me sad,
Because I can't be with you.

Be with you. (X 4)
Be with you, be with you, baby, I can't be with you.

Thinking back on how things were,
And on how we loved so well.
I wanted to be the mother of your child,
And now it's just farewell.

Put your hands in my hands,
And come with me, we'll find another end.
And my head, and my head on anyone's shoulder,
'Cause I can't be with you.

Be with you. (X 4)
Be with you, be with you, baby, I can't be with you.

'Cause you're not here, you're not here,
Baby, I can't be with you.
'Cause you're not here, you're not here,
Baby, still in love with you.

Still in love with you. (X 6)

Twenty one

I don't think it's going to happen anymore.

You took my thoughts from me.
Now I want nothing more.
And did you think you could just take it all away?

I don't think it's happ'ning, this is what I say.
Leave me alone, leave me alone,
Leave me alone 'cause I found it all.
Twenty one, twenty one, twenty one...

So I don't think it's going to happen anymore.
I don't think it's going,
To happen anymore.

Twenty one, twenty one, twenty one... (X 2)
Today... (X 4)

Twenty one... (X 14)

Zombie

Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the violence caused such silence,
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it's not me, it's not my family.
In your head, in your head they are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are crying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, dou, dou, dou, dou, dou...

Another mother's breakin',
Heart is taking over.
When the vi'lence causes silence,
We must be mistaken.

It's the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen.
In your head, in your head they're still fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are dying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What's in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, oh, ya, ya-a...

Empty

Something has left my life,
And I don't know where it went to, ah, ha, ha.
Somebody caused me strife,
And it's not what I was seeking.

Didn't you see me, didn't you hear me?
Didn't you see me standing there, ah, ha, ha?
Why did you turn out the lights?
Did you know that I was sleeping?

Say a prayer for me,
Help me to feel the strenght, I did.
My identity, has it been taken?
Is my heart breakin' on me?

All my plans fell though my hands,
They fell though my hands on me.
All my dreams it suddenly seems,
It suddenly seems,
Empty, i, i, i (X 7)

Everything I said

It makes me lonely,
It makes me very lonely,
When I see you here, waitin' on.

It makes me tired,
It makes me very tired,
And inside of me, lingers on.

But you have your heart, oh,
Don't believe it,
And you ran outside, waiting on.

Everything I said, oh,
Well I meant it,
And inside my head, holdin' on.

'Cause if I died tonight,
Would you hold my head, oh,
Would you understand?

And if I lied in spite,
Would you still be here,
No, would you disappear?

Surely must be you,
Surely must be you,
But I don't make you lonely.

I'll get over you,
I'll get over you,
But I don't make you lonely.

La, da, da, da, da, da...

The icicle melts

When, when will the icicle melt,
The icicle, icicle?
And when, when will the picture show end,
The picture show, picture show?

I should not have read the paper today,
'Cause a child, child, child, child he was taken away.

There's a place for the baby that died,
And there's time for the mother who cried.
And she will hold him in her arms sometime,
'Cause nine months is too long, too long, too long...

How, how could you hurt the child,
How could you hurt the child?
Now, does this make you satisfied,
Satisfied, satisfied?

I don't know what's happ'ning to people today,
When a child, child, child, child, he was taken away.

There's a place for the baby that died,
And there's time for the mother who cried.
And she will hold him in her arms sometime,
'Cause nine months is too long, too long, too long...

There's a place for the baby that died,
And there's time for the mother who cried.
And you will hold him in your arms sometime,
'Cause nine months is too long, too long, too long,
Too long.

Disappointment

A disappointment.
Oh, you shouldn't have done,
You couldn't have done,
You wouldn't have done the things you did then.

And we could've been happy.
What a piteous thing,
A hideous thing was tainted by the rest,
But it won't get any harder,

Ridiculous thoughts

Twister, oh, does anyone see through you?
You're a twister, oh, an animal.
But you're so happy, now. I didn't go along with you,
So happy now, na na na na.

But you're gonna have to hold on. You're gonna have to hold on,
You're gonna have to hold on, hold on, hold on.

Dreaming my dreams

All the things you said to me today,
Change my perspective in every way.
These things count to mean so much to me,
Into my faith, you and your baby.

It's out there. It's out there.
It's out there. If you want me I'll be here.
X2

I'll be dreaming my dreams with you.
I'll be dreaming my dreams with you.
And there's no other place,
That I'd lay down my face.

Yeat's grave

Na, na na na. Na, na, na...

Silenced by death in the grave,
Da da da da. William Butler Yeats couldn't save.
Da da de da. Why did you stand here,
Were you sickened in time?
But I know by now.
Why did you sit here, ah...

In the grave, in the gra-a-ave.
In the grave, in the gra-a-a-ave?

Why should I blame her,
that she filled my days with misery,
Or that she would of late have taught
To ignorant men most violent
Ways or hurled the little streets upon the great.
Had they but courage equal to desire.

Sad that Maud Gonne couldn't stay,
Da da da da, but she had Mac Bride anyway.
And you sit here with me on the Isle Inisfree,
And you're writting down ev'rything.
But I know by now.
Why did you sit here, ah...

In the grave, in the gra-a-ave.
In the grave, in the gra-a-a-ave?
La da da da; La da da da...

Daffodil lament

Holding on, that's what I do since I met you.
And it won't be long. Would you notice if I left you?
And it's fine for some 'cause you're not the one,
You're not the one there...
There... there... there... there... there...

All night long, laid on my pillow,
These things are wrong.
I can't sleep here!

So lovely, so lovely, so lovely.

I have decided to leave you forever.
I have decided to start things from here.
Thunder and lightning won't change,
What I'm feeling and the daffodils look lovely today,
And the daffodils look lovely today,
Look lovely today.

Ooh, in your eyes I can see the disguise.
Ooh, in your eyes I can see the disguise.
Has anyone seen lightning?
Has anyone looked lovely?
And the daffodils look lovely today,
And the daffodils look lovely today,
Look lovely today...

Look lovely, (X 9)

 No need to argue

There's no need to argue anymore
I gave all I could, but it left me so sore
And the thing that makes me mad
Is the one thing that I had

I knew, I knew
I'd lose you
You'll always be special to me
Special to me, to me

And I remember all the things we once shared
Watching T.V. movies on the living room armchair
But they say it will work out fine
Was it all a waste of time

'Cause I knew, I knew
I'd lose you
You'll always be special to me
Special to me, to me

Will I forget in time, ah
You said I was on your mind
There's no need to argue
No need to argue anymore
There's no need to argue anymore

Special

To The Faithful Departed

Hollywood

I've got a picture in my head, in my head.
It's me and you, we are in bed, we are in bed.
You've always been there when I call, when I call.
You've always been there most of all, all, all, all.

This is not Hollywood, like I understood.
Is not Hollywood, like, like, like.
X2

Run away, run away, is there anybody there? X2
Get away, get away, get awa-a-a-a-a-a-ay. X2

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

I've got a picture in my room, in my room.
I will return there I presume, it should be soon.
The greatest irony of all, shoot the wall.
It's not so glamorous at all, all, all, all...

This is not Hollywood, like I understood.
Is not Hollywood, like, like, like.
X2

Run away, run away, is there anybody there? X2
Get away, get away, get away. X2

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

This is not Hollywood, runaway

Salvation

To all those people doin' lines,
Don't do it, don't do it.
Inject your soul with liberty,
It's free, it's free.

To all the kids with heroin eyes,
Don't do it, don't do it.
Because it's not not what it seems,
No no it's not not what it seems.

Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.
Salvation, salvation, salvation is free.

Ah, ah, ah, ah

To all the parents with sleepless nights,
Sleepless nights.
Tie your kids home to their beds,
Clean their heads.

To all the kids with heroin eyes,
Don't do it, don't do it.
Because it's not not what it seems,
No no it's not not what it seems.

When you're gone

Hold onto love that is what I do now that I've found you.
And from above everything's stinking, they're not around you.

And in the night, I could be helpless,
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex,
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you.

But I'll miss you when you're gone, that is what I do. Hey, baby!
And it's going to carry on, that is what I do. Hey, baby...

Hold onto my hands, I feel I'm sinking, sinking without you.
And to my mind, everything's stinking, stinking without you.

And in the night, I could be helpless,
I could be lonely, sleeping without you.

And in the day, everything's complex,
There's nothing simple, when I'm not around you.

But I'll miss you when you're gone, that is what I do. Hey, baby!
And it's going to carry on, that is what I do. hey, baby...

Free to decide

It's not worth anything,
More than this at all.
I'll live as I choose,
Or I will not live at all.

So return to where you come from,
Return to where you dwell,
Because harassment's not my forte,
But you do it very well.

I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all.
I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all,
At all, at all, at all.

You must have nothing,
More with your time to do.
There's a war in Russia,
And Sarajevo too.

So to hell with what you're thinking,
And to hell with your narrow mind,
You're so distracted from the real thing,
You should leave your life behind, behind.

'Cause I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all,
I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all,
At all, at all, at all.

I'm free to decide, I'm free to decide,
And I'm not so suicidal after all,
At all, at all, at all.

War child

Who will save the war child baby?
Who controls the key?
The web we weave is thick and sordid,
Fine by me.

At times of war we're all the losers,
There's no victory.
We shoot to kill and kill your lover,
Fine by me.

War child, victim of political pride.
Plant the seed, territorial greed.
Mind the war child,
We should mind the war child.

I spent last winter in New York,
And came upon a man.
He was sleeping on the streets and homeless,
He said, "I fought in Vietnam."

Beneath his shirt he wore the mark,
He bore the mark with pride.
A two inch deep incision carved,
Into his side.

War child, victim of political pride.
Plant the seed, territorial greed.
Mind the war child,
We should mind the war child.

Who's the loser now? Who's the loser now?
We're all the losers now. We're all the losers now.

War child. X2

The rebels

Seems like yesterday we were sixteen.
We were the rebels of the rebel scene.
He wore Doc Martens in the sun,
Drinking vintage cider having fun,
We were drinking vintage cider having fun.

It wasn't often, that we'd fight at all.
It wasn't often, hey...

Tut, tut tut, tut...

We wore Doc Martens in the snow.
(We will never go)
Paint our toe-nails black and let our hair grow.
(We will never grow)
What I am now's what I was then.
(We will never know)
I am not more acceptable than them.
But, I am not more acceptable than them.

It wasn't often, that we'd fight at all.
It wasn't often, hey...

It wasn't often, hey...

I just shot John Lennon

It was the fearful night of December 8th.
He was returning home from the studio late.
He had perseptively known that it wouldn't be nice.
Because in 1980, he paid the price.

John Lennon died. X6

With a Smith & Wesson 38,
John Lennon's life was no longer a debate.
He should have stayed at home,
He should have never cared,
And the man who took his life declared,

He said I just shot John Lennon.
He said I just shot John Lennon.
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight.
What a sad and sorry and sickening night.
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight.
What a sad and sorry and sickening night.

I just shot John Lennon.
He said I just shot John Lennon.
What a sad and sorry and sickening sight.
What a sad and sorry and sickening night.

What a sad and sorry and sickening night.

I'm still remembering

I'm still remembering the day I gave my life away.
I'm still remembering the time you said you'd be mine.
Yesterday was cold and bare, because you were not there.
Yesterday was cold, my story has been told.

I need your affection all the wa-ay.
The world has changed or I've changed in a wa-ay.
I try to remain, I'm trying not to go insa-ane.
I need your affection all the way, the way.
Get away X6

I'm still remembering my life before I became your wife.
I'm still remembering the pain and the mind games.
Reverse psychology never tainted me.
I didn't sell my soul.
I didn't sell my soul.

I need your affection all the wa-ay.
The world has changed or I've changed in a wa-ay.
I try to remain, I'm trying not to go insa-ane.
I need your affection all the way, the way.

They say the cream will always rise to the top.
They say that good people are always first to drop.
What of Kurt Cobain, will his presence still remain?
Remember JFK, ever saintly in a way.
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
Where are you now, I said,
Where are you no-ow?

I need your affection all the way. X4
All the way. X10

Will you remember

Will you remember the dresse I wore

Will you remember the lipstick I wore
This world is a wonderful place

Will you remember the black limousine
Will you remember champagne
Will you remember the things that we've seen
I will return here again

Will you remember the flowers in my hand
Will you remember my hair
Will you remember the future we planned
The world is not waiting out there

I won't remember the dress I wore
I won't remember champagne
I won't remember the things that we swore
I will just love you in vain

Will you remember
Will you recall

There was a time, I was so lonely, oh hey yeah...
Remember the time, it was on Friday, oh hey yeah...
You made me feel fine, we did it my way, oh hey yeah...
I sat on your knees, every Friday, oh hey yeah...

We walked in fields of golden hay.
I still recall you.
We walked in fields of golden hay.
I see you in the summer.

Joe. Joe.

I sat on your chair, by the fire, oh hey yeah...
Transfixed in a stare, taking me higher, oh hey yeah...
Precious years to remember, oh hey yeah...
Childhood fears, I surrender, oh hey yeah...

We walked in fields of golden hay.
I still recall you.
We walked in fields of golden hay.
I see you in the summer.

Bosnia

I would like to state my vision,
Life was so unfair.
We live in our secure surroundings,
And people die out there.

Bosnia was so unkind.
Sarajevo changed my mind.
And we all call out in despair.
All the love we need isn't there.
And we all sing songs in our room.
Sarajevo erects another tomb.

Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Sarajevo.
Bosnia was so unkind.
Sarajevo, Sarajevo, Saraje-
Bosnia was so unkind.

Sure things would change if we really wanted them to.
No fear for children anymore.
There are babies in their beds,
Terror in their heads,
Love for the love of life.

When do the saints go marching in? X4
Walk on tip toe...

Bury the hatchet

Animal Instinct

Suddenly something has happened to me
As I was having my cup of tea
Suddenly I was feeling depressed
I was utterly and totally stressed
Do you know you made me cry
Do you know you made me die

And the thing that gets to me
Is you'll never really see
And the thing that freaks me out
Is I'll always be in doubt
It is a lovely thing that we have
It is a lovely thing that we
It is a lovely thing, the animal
The animal instinct

So take my hands and come with me
We will change reality
So take my hands and we will pray
They won't take you away
They will never make me cry, no
They will never make me die

And the thing that gets to me
Is you'll never really see
And the thing that freaks me out
Is I'll always be in doubt

The animal, the animal, the animal instinct in me
It's the animal, the animal, the animal instinct in me
It's the animal, it's the animal, it's the animal instinct in me x2

Loud And Clear

I hope that you miss me
Put me down on history
I feel such a reject now
Get yourself a life
I hope that you're sorry
For not accepting me
For not adoring me
That's why I'm not your wife

People are stranger
People in danger
People are stranger
People deranged or

I remember there was
Nothing I could ever do
Never could impress you
Even if I tried
Tell somebody who cares
Fill the room with empty stares
Go to bed and say my prayers
Keep them satisfied

People are stranger
People in danger
People are stranger
People deranged

Loud and clear I make my point my dear

I hope that you never
Get the things you wanted to
Now I cast a spell on you
Complicate your life
Hope you get a puncture
Everywhere you ever drive
Hope the sun beats down on you and
Skin youself alive

You'd better believe I'm coming
You'd better believe what I say
You'd better hold on to your promises
Because you bet you'll get what you deserve.

She's going to leave him over
She's going take her love away
So much for your eternal vows, well
It does not matter anyway.

Why can't you stay
Here a while
Stay here awhile
Stay with me.

All the meaningless and empty words I broke

What of all the things that you taught me
What of all the things that you'd say
What of all your prophetic preaching
You're just throwing it all away

Maybe we should burn the house down
Have ourselves another fight
Leave the cobwebs in the closet
'Cause tearing them out is just not right

Why can't you stay
Here awhile
Stay here awhile
Stay with me

Just My Imagination

There was a game we used to play
We would hit the town on Friday night
And stay in bed until Sunday
We used to be so free
We were living for the love we had and
Living not for reality

It was just my imagination x3

There was a time I used to pray
I have always kept my faith in love
It's the greatest thing from the man above
The game I used to play
I've always put my cards upon the table
Let it never be said that I'd be unstable

It was just my imagination x3

There is a game I like to play
I like to hit the town on Friday night
And stay in bed until Sunday
We'll always be this free
We will be living for the love we have
Living not for reality

It's not my imagination x3
Not my x18

Shattered

I'm trying to control myself
So please don't stand in my way
I've waited for the longest time
This is what I wanted in my way

Move over, move over
There's a climax coming in my way
Move over, move over
There's a climax coming in my way

I don't like you, don't compromise
Shattered by your weakness
Shattered by your smile
And I'm not very fond of you, and your lies
Shattered by your weaknesses
Shattered by your smile

All the kids are going back to school
The summer's over it's the golden rule
And now I'm coming out to play
So please don't stand in my way
And all the things that seemed once to be
So important to me
Seem so trivial now that I can see

Move over, move over
There's a climax coming my way x2

I don't like you, don't compromise
Shattered by your weakness
Shattered by your smile
And I'm not very fond of you, and your lies
Shattered by your weaknesses
Shattered by your smile

Please don't stand in my way

Fee Fi Fo

Fee fi fo she smells his body
She smells his body
And it makes her sick to her mind
He has got so much to answer for
To answer for, To ruin a child's mind

How could you touch something
So innocent and pure
Obscure
How could you get satisfaction
From the body of a child
You're vile, sick

It's true what people say
God protect the ones who help themselves
In their own way
It's true what people say
God protect the ones who help themselves
In their own way

He was sitting in her bedroom
In her bedroom
And now what should she do
She's got so much insecurity
And his impurity It was a gathering gloom

How could you touch something
So innocent and pure
Obscure
How could you get satisfaction
From the body of a child
You're a vile, sick

It's true what people say
God protect the ones who help themselves
In their own way
And I often wondered to myself:
Who protects the ones who can't protect themselves?

It's true what people say
God protect the ones who help themselves
In their own way
And I often wondered to myself:

Dying In The Sun

Do you remember
The things we used to say?
I feel so nervous
When I think of yesterday

How could I let things
Get to me so bad?
How did I let things get to me?

Like dying in the sun
Like dying in the sun
Like dying in the sun
Like dying x2

Will you hold on to me
I am feeling frail
Will you hold on to me
We will never fail

I wanted to be so perfect you see
I wanted to be so perfect

Like dying in the sun
Like dying in the sun
Like dying in the sun
Like dying x2

Sorry Son

Sorry son, this is what I've done
This is what I've done
It was a long sad supper without you
I had to be cruel to be kind
We have to leave the past behind
La la la
And isn't it strange how people can change
And isn't it weird how people I feared
They all seem worthless now

I will ride on my bicycle, I ride thinking of you
As I'm riding on my tricycle, I ride

I see the sun in the trees, and I feel the psychedelic breeze
And I see the sun in the trees, and I feel the psychedelic breeze

Sorry son, this is what I've done
This is what I've done
It was a long sad supper without you
Please don't hold me responsible
I tried and tried
It wasn't the same without my brain
It wasn't a game, it wasn't a game
Oh not now

I will ride on my bicycle, I ride thinking of you
As I'm riding on my tricycle, I ride

I see the sun in the trees, and I feel the psychedelic breeze
I see the sun in the trees, and I feel the psychedelic breeze

La la la

Sorry son
Oh I am so sorry son

Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

Never grow old

I had a dream
Strange it may seem
It was my perfect day

I opened my eyes
I realized
This is my perfect day

I hope you'll never grow old
Hope you'll never grow old
Hope you'll never grow old
Hope you'll never grow old

Do Do Do Do
Do Do Do Do
Do Do Do
Do Do Do
Do Do Do Do
Do Do Do Do
Do Do Do
Do Do Do

Birds in the sky
They look so high
This is my perfect day

I feel the breeze
I feel at ease
It is my perfect day

Hope you'll never grow old
Hope you'll never grow old (old)
Hope you'll never grow old
Hope you'll never grow old

Forever young
I hope you'll stay
Forever young

Analyse

Close your eyes

We are free, we can be wide open 

For you open my eyes
To the beauty I see
We will pray, we will stay
Wide open 

Don't analyse

Don't go that way
Don't live that way
That would paralyse your evolution

Time is ticking out

We'd better think about the things we say
We'd better think about the games we play
The world went round, around and round 

We'd better think about the consequences
We'd better think about the global senses
The time went down, the time went down 

What about Chernobyl?
What about radiation?
We don't know, we don't know 

What about deprivation?
Gluttony, the human nation?
We don't know, we don't know
For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all 

Time is ticking out 

Looks like we screwed up the ozone layer
I wonder if the politicians care
The time went down, the time went down

What about our children then?
Is there nothing left for them?
We don't know, we don't know
For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all 
Ahh la la la the oxygen, ahh la la la the oxygen
For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all 

Time is ticking out yeah
Time is ticking out 

Dying inside

Terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying
It was a terribe thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside
To see her dying
Won't you come out
And play the games we played
Won't you speak out
And say the things you'd say

The lady loved her gold
The lady lost her soul 

It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying
It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside
To see her dying
Do you remember the things we used to do?
Do you remember the way it was for you?

The lady loved her gold
The lady lost her soul 

It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying
It was a terrible thing
It was a terrible thing to see her dying inside
To see her die

The concept

Come here, my lover 
Something's on your mind 
Listen to no other 
They could be unkind 

Hold on to the concept of love, always

Take life between us 
Live it like we choose 
They'll never see us 
I will hear you call 

Hold on to the concept, always

Hold on to the concept, always 

Night all night all night

Wake up and smell the coffee

Pretty eyes

Pretty eyes, pretty eyes 
Not a cloud in my day

Angel eyes, no disguise
No pretention is here 
No pretention, no fear 

Don't leave me calling 
Don't leave me falling

I really hope

I've been down this road before
Now I'm coming back for more 
This is like a déja-vu 
I was born to be with you 

Into the night we went to sleep 
You and I were meant for keeps
Into the night we went to play 
You and I 

I really hope you'll always be 
So in love with me 
I really hope we'll always stay 
So attached this way 
I really hope you'll always be 
So in love with me 
I really hope we'll always stay 
So attached this way 

So beware of the pitfall
We don't have to change at all 
And our light will not burn out
It's what freedom's all about 

Into the night we go to sleep 
You and I were meant for keeps 
Into the night we go to play 
You and I 

I really hope you'll always be 
So in love with me 
I really hope we'll always stay 
So attached this way 
I really hope you'll always be 
So in love with me 
I really hope we'll always stay 
So attached this way 

I really hope you'll always be 
So in love with me 
I really hope we'll always stay 
So attached this way 
I really hope you'll always be 
So in love with me 
I really hope we'll always stay 
So attached this way 

I really hope that you'll always be here 
I really hope that you'll always be near 
Take me and like me I'll always be here 
I really hope that you'll always be near

Every morning

My God the years have passed me by 
Where was I hiding?
I've been around the world for some time
It's oblivious now

The morning sun is in my eyes 
It doesn't hide the lines 
It does not bear
The great disguise 
Happy birthday baby 
Happy birthday 

Every morning 
Every morning in time
We're doing fine
Every morning 
Every morning in time
We're doing fine 

I don't remember being young
Was it so much fun? 
I don't remember feeling this way 
It was not for me 

I payed a price 
A sacrifice 
It was worth it then

My time has come 
I now feel young
Begin again
Happy birthday 

Every morning 
Every morning in time
We're doing fine
Every morning 
Every morning in time
We're doing fine

Do you know

Leaving awhile 
Might as well smile 
Might as well smile 

I will be strong 
We'll carry on 
And I'll always hold on to my smile 

What would you say? 
Would you say that it's sad for feeling this way? 

What would you do if you were in my shoes? 
In my 

Do you know what I think? 
Do you know what I think about it? 
About it 

I guess you don't know anything 
You don't know anything about it 
About it 

Do you know what I think? 
Do you know what I think about it? 
About it 

I guess you don't know anything 
You don't know anything about it 
About it 

Dust in my eyes 
I realize 
That I'm thinking 
Of you 

I'll take my car 
I will go far 
I'll be lonely 
For you 

What would you say? 
Would you say that it's sad for feeling this way? 

What would you do if you were in my shoes? 
In my 

Do you know what I think? 
Do you know what I think about it? 
About it 

I guess you don't know anything 
You don't know anything about it 
About it 

Do you know what I think? 
Do you know what I think about it? 
About it 

I guess you don't know anything 
You don't know anything about it 
About it 

Carry on

I didn't understand the things you're going through
I never understood, I really never knew
Carry on
Carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on
Carry on
We'll have a glass of wine
Or a cigarette 

Take destiny by the hand
And lead it far away
Take it to another land
We will all decay
Carry on
Carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on
Carry on
We'll have a glass of wine
Or a cigarette 

Chocolate brown

But I tried 
And I sighed 
You didn't listen to me 
I felt that way 

Still I try 
And I sigh 
You wouldn't understand me 
I felt that way 

But you're so young 
And you don't get me now 
I feel so guilty 
And you are chocolate brown 

Chocolate brown 
I can't wait
Not too long
I will make it up to you 
Chocolate brown

Still I learn 
And I learn 
There's so much to think about here 
So much to lose 

But it's just fine 
And you don't see it now 
Don't make me guilty 
Please don't chocolate brown 

Chocolate brown 
I can't wait
Not too long 
I will make it up to you 
Chocolate brown

The Treasure Box - The Complete Sessions

Reason

Nothing to say,
Nothing to do,
Nowhere to go,
And I can't get over it and be with you
I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
I don't know what you want
Is there anything that I can do?

'Cos if you were somewhere else instead
If you were in someone else's bed
If you were...

The look on your face
You'd told us to come here
A reason to be
Escaping from reality
I'll fight you in fear, indefinitely
A reason to be
Escaping from reality

'Cos if you were somewhere else instead
If you were in someone else's head
If you were...

Nothing to say
Nothing to do
Nowhere to go
And I can't get over it and be with you

I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
I don't know what you want
Is there anything that I can do?

'Cos if you were somewhere else instead
If you were in someone else's bed
If you were...

Them

Don't listen to what they say,
Make up your mind, walk away,
Oh don't even give them the time of day,
They put you wrong, turn away.

So why'd they all just walk away,
There was something wrong,
But you don't want to say.

Oh why did they listen to someone else,
I did something wrong,
Something...

Oh that attitude,
They all got that attitude.

Something they say,
Make up your mind, walk away,
Oh oh never happen again,
They've all gone wrong, gone insane.

That's why they all just walked away,
There was nothing wrong,
Didn't want to say.
Oh that's why they listened to somebody else,
I did nothing wrong,
Nothing I could say.

That's why, that's why
That's why, that's why

What you were

Now it's easy for to see,
Why peoples lives are so lonely?

And you never understood,
You never really could,
You were wrong.

What you were, what you were,
I couldn't say.

'Cause you left me here behind,
A stupid state of mind,
And I'm lonely.

Yeah, you left me here behind,
A stupid state of mind,
And you're gone.

'Cause you left me here behind,
A stupid state of mind,
And you're gone.

What you were, what you were,
I couldn't say.

It took something hard like this,
Mistaken to resist,
And I'm lonely.

Liar

Say it if you want to and say it if you will
But if you don't say what you are thinkin'
No, I won't take too kindly to it.

And all I want is something special,
And you can't give it to me,
And all you do is lie to me,
'Cause you're a liar, liar, liar.

I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night lie, lie, liar,
I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night lie, lie, liar...

Say it if you want to,
And say it if you choose
But if you don't say what you are thinkin'
No I won't take too kindly to it

When all I want is something different
And you could't give it to me
And all you do is lie to me
So you're a liar, liar, liar.

I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night lie, lie, liar,
I will run, I will fight,
I will take you through the night lie, lie, liar...

I'll fight you, I'll fight you
I'm fighing you
Liar, liar, liar
You know you're a liar,
Liar...

Away

Turn away, turn away
From me, from me
And I pray, yes I pray
For thee, for thee, for thee-ee-ee

Another world
Wrapped up inside another place
And I hope, and I pray
That the pain goes away,
Yes I pray, Yes I pray, for thee-ee-e

Turn away, turn away
From me, from me
And I pray, yes I pray
For thee, for thee, for thee-ee-ee

Turn away, turn away
From me, from me
And I pray, yes I pray
For thee, for thee, for thee-ee-ee

I don't need

The world is consuming me and I don't feel so happy here today
I'm not and I don't feel and I used to be a baby in my head
So where is the one you love? Does she hold you happy next to her?
And your head hangs lightly and everyone's slightly drunk tonight
They're drunk tonight again, la-la-la etc.

I Don't need to see you, no, no, no etc.
I Don't need to see you, no, no, no etc.

My head it is hanging now and my eyes are on the ground, the ground, the ground
And everyone's so patronizing I don't see when the real things comes around
So where is your mother now, did she hold you happy next to her
And your head hangs lightly and everyone's slightly drunk tonight
They're drunk tonight again, la-la-la etc.

I Don't need to see you, no, no, no etc.
I Don't need to see you, no, no, no etc.

And maybe no work done today, no work done today. No. No. No.
No work done today. No. No. No. No, work done today.

Close to you

( The Carpenters )

Why do birds suddenly appear
Everytime you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you...

Why do stars fall off from the sky
Everytime you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be,
Close to you...

On the day that you were born
The angels got together
They decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair
And put a starlight in your eyes so blue

That is why all the girls in town
Follow you, all around
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you...

Just like me, they long to be
Close to you....

Just like me, they long to be
Close to you....

Aah...
Close to you...

So cold in Ireland

Here is a story
Of hope and of glory.
He's eighteen years old
And well I fell in love.
But after that,
Where have you gone, from me?
The one that I loved endlessly.

We used to have a life,
But now it's all gone.

Mystify...

Does it have to be so cold in Ireland?
Does it have to be so cold in Ireland, for me?

Are they ready for me?

Where have you gone, from me?
The one that I loved endlessly.
We were to have a child.
Yesterday's gone.
Well I knew the time would come.
When I'd have to leave.
Go on.
Look what they've done to me.
They've taken my hand...
And it's killing me.
Killing me, killing me, killing me!

Does it have to be so cold in Ireland?
Does it have to be so cold in Ireland, for me?
Are they ready for me?

But I'm afraid I'm returning to Ireland.
I'm afraid I'm returning to Ireland.
I see, that there is nothing for me.
There is nothing for me.

Cordell

Once you ruled my mind,
I thought you'd always be there.
And I'll always hold on to your face.
But everything changes in time,
And the answers are not always fair.
And I hope you've gone to a better place.

Cordell,
Time will tell,
They say that you've passed away,
And I hope you've gone to a better place.
Time will tell,
Time will tell,
They say that you've passed away,
And I know that you've gone to a better place.
Cordell X7

Your lover and baby will cry,
But your presense will always remain,
Is this how it was meant to be?
You meant something more to me,
That what many people will see,
And to hell with the endless dream.

Cordell,
Time will tell,
They say that you've passed away,
And I hope you've gone to a better place.
Time will tell,
Time will tell,
We all will depart and decay,
And we all will return to a better place.
Cordell X7
Na, na, na...

The picture I view

I haven't changed but my life has
People are strange when it's like as
I did something wrong to them
And I don't even know your name...
No, I don't even know your name...

I swear that he's good for me,
And I swear he looks after me,
And I swear that he looks out for me...
And I swear that he's good, good, good.

La, la, la, the picture I view,
La, la, la, the picture I view...

All my friends and promises,
Went tumbling down the hill.
All my friends and promises,
Went tumbling down the hill,
They went tumbling down the hill.

I haven't changed, but my life has,
People are strange when it's like as,
I did something wrong to them,
And I don't even know your name.
No, I don't even know your name.
I don't even know your name.

Go Your Own Way

( Fleetwood Mac Tribute )

Loving you
Isn't the right thing to do
How can I ever change things
That I feel

If I could
Maybe I'd give you my world
How can I
When you won't take it from me

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You an call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

Tell me why
Everything turned around
Packing up
Shacking up's all you wanna do

If I could
Baby I'd give you my world
Open up
Everything's waiting for you

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You an call it
Another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

Ah, ah, ah...

*** A great thanx to Rafet For this one ***

God be with you

The truth will ever hide
Even though I tried
They tried to take my pride
But they only took my father from me
They only took my father
Even though I cried
Even though I tried again

God be with you Ireland
God be with you Ireland

Sometimes I was afraid
Even though I prayed
I've lost my religion now
You took that too somehow
Blood upon thy hands
Blood upon thy hands again

(I have served my time)
God be with you Ireland
(Suffered for my crime)
God be with you Ireland

(I have served my time)
God be with you Ireland
(Suffered for my crime)
God be with you Ireland

God be with you now
God be with you now
God be with you now
God be with you now

Baby Blues

I wonder what's happening to me
Things are changing so dramatically
I'll search for you, you're not really there
Still I wonder knowing that you do care

I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up,
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up,
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now
I shut up now, I shut up now
I shut up now, I shut up now

He is the best thing to come my way
Perfect picture baby blues in my day
He is the best thing to come around
Sleeping in his cradle safe and sound

I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up,
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up, I shut up,
I shut up, I shut up, I shut up now
I shut up now, I shut up now
I shut up now, I shut up now

Baby blues, baby blues,
Baby, baby, baby blues
Baby blues, baby blues,
Baby, baby, baby blues

Sha la la, sha la la, sha la la, sha la la

Sweetest Thing

I am getting ready for my lover,
He is coming home to me tomorrow,
I am getting ready for no other,
He is, the sunshine in, the moonlight of my day.

He as never had to disappoint me,
He was the Sweetest thing,
The neediest thing in my life,

I am getting ready for my lover,
He is, the sunshine in, the moonlight of my day.

It's only fair that you be there with me,
And hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me,
And understand
It's only fair, if you really dare,
To hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me
Pitum pitum pitum...

I remember sweetness in my childhood,
It was the sweetness child, the world was my understood,
I remember sweetness in my mother,
She did the best she could,
She always would for us
Don't you ever have to disappoint me,

It's only fair that you be there with me,
and hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me,
And understand
It's only fair, if you really dare,
To hold my hand
It's only fair that you be there with me
Pitum pitum pitum...

Talilalila...the sweetest thing...

*** A great thanx to Rafael For this one ***

Woman without pride

I'll try to be nice, be nice if I can
I will try to be nice and please my man
I'll try to let on that it's a perfect day
And I'll try to pretend she's going away

I'll try to let on that she never persisted
I'll try to let on she never was twisted
I'll try to pretend she doesn't exist
And I'll try to let on that you never kissed her
Kissed her, kissed her, kissed her, kissed her, kissed her, kissed her, kissed her

You don't see things like I do
You don't see things like I do

La la la la la la

I don't believe that she has the audacity
I don't believe that woman without pride
Woman without pride, woman without pride, women without pride, women without pride

You don't see things like I do
You don't see things like I do

Such A Shame

Well, I feel so sorry for you
You'll always be the same.
'Cause you're sad, you're sad.

And I think you're very selfish,
And you play a vicicious game,
'Cause you're bad, you're bad.

And you'll end up very lonely
And you may end up in pain
'Cause you're mad, you're mad.

I think you're awful,
I think you're horrible,
A waste of space

I think you're awful,
I think you're horrible,
A waste of space

'Cause your bad behavior
But you never see.

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother
Who endured your pain.

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother
Who endured your pain.

Arrogance, ignorance,
Arrogance, ignorance,
Arrogance, ignorance...

Ooh, ooh...

I should think you're very selfish
I should think you're very sad,
It's your bad behavior.

I should think you're very thankless
For the things you never had
It's your bad behavior.

I think you're awful,
I think you're horrible,
A waste of space.

I think you're awful,
I think you're horrible,
A waste of space.

It's your bad behavior
Who care, but you never see.

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother
Who endured your pain.

Such a shame, such a shame
You'll always be the same
I'm sickened for the mother
Who endured your pain.

Such a shame, such a shame
Such a fool, such a fool
Such a clown, such a clown
Such a shamble...

Such a shame, such a shame
Such a fool, such a fool
Such a clown, such a clown
Such a shamble...

Such a shame, such a shame
Such a fool, such a fool
Such a clown, such a clown
Such a shamble...
(Arrogance, ignorance,
Arrogance, ignorance,
Arrogance, ignorance...)

Paparazzi On Mopeds

As I lie here in the bathtub I wonder
And I wonder why did they take her
And squeeze her life away
Paparazzi on mopeds
Fresh air in their heads
Paparazzi on mopeds
Cotton wool balls in their hand, ah...

So ugly, so ugly
Why, you just can't justify
So ugly, so ugly
Why, they even watched her die
So ugly, so ugly
Why

Who was to blame
Was there too much champagne or wine
It could have been fine
Still I knew
A bad déjà-vu
Another celebrity dies
And it still mystifies the people
Another icon is destroyed, ah

So ugly, so ugly
Why, you just can't justify
So ugly, so ugly
Why, they even watched her die
So ugly, so ugly
Why, you can't, you can't justify

Justify
Even watched her die

Are You Listening?

Ordinary Day

This is just an ordinary day
Wipe the insecurities away
I can see that the darkness will erode
Looking out the corner of my eye
I can see that the sunshine will explode
Far across the desert in the sky

Beautiful girl
Won't you be my inspiration
Beautiful girl
Don't you throw your love around
What in the world, what in the world
Could ever come between us
Beautiful girl, beautiful girl
I'll never let you down
Won't let you down

This is the beginning of your day
Life is more intricate than it seems
Always be yourself along the way
Living through the spirit of your dreams

Beautiful girl
Won't you be my inspiration
Beautiful girl
Don't you throw your love around
What in the world, what in the world
Could ever come between us
Beautiful girl, beautiful girl
I'll never let you down

Won't let you down, down
Won't let you down, down
Down, down
Won't let you down, down

Beautiful girl
Won't you be my inspiration
Beautiful girl
Don't you throw your love around
What in the world, what in the world
Could ever come between us
Beautiful girl, beautiful girl
I'll never let you down

Won't let you down, down

When We Were Young

Funny how things just tasted better
When we were young
When we were young

Funny how things just seemed so easy
When we were young

It's been a long day
It's been a long day
It's been a long day
It's been a long day

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better
Than you on the phone

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better
Than you on the phone

I think that we weren't always grateful
For what you've done
When we were young

I think that we weren't always grateful
For what you've done

We've come a long way
We've come a long way
We've come a long way
We've come a long way

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better
Than you on the phone

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better
Than you on the phone

You on the phone
You on the phone
You on the phone

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better
Than you on the phone

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
I want to feel better
Can't make it alone

I wanna get out
I wanna go home
Is anything better
Than you on the phone

In The Garden

I see you playing
In the garden
Outside my window

Oh, oh, oh

You're like your father
I see right through you
Just like your father
I thought I knew you

Oh, oh, oh

It's a panic
In paradise
It's a panic
It's in paradise

You can't come here
You can't cry
You can't come here
You can't cry

I see her playing
In the garden
I was once like her
You did this to me

I don't remember
When this offense began
I don't remember
I can't undo what's done

You can't come here
You can't cry
You can't come here
You can't cry
You can't come here
You know why
You can't come here
You know why

I'll keep my secret
With me until I die
I'll keep my secret
And I don't know why

You can't come here
You can't cry
You can't come here
You know why
I can't go there
I won't cry
I can't go there
I won't cry

Human Spirit

Don't let life consume you
It could eat you up inside
Can you see the human spirit
Tell me why should I have to hide

And with my heart in my hand
And with my hand upon my heart
And with my heart in my hand
It's not like we planned

Don't betray your lover
You will just betray yourself
Can you see the human spirit
Is there emptiness inside

And with my heart in my hand
And with my hand upon my heart
And with my heart in my hand
It's not like we planned

Can you see the human spirit
Is there emptiness inside
Can you see the human spirit
Is there loneliness inside

And with my heart in my hand
And with my hand upon my heart
And with my heart in my hand
It's not like we planned

Loser

I'm sick and tired of people like you
You think you're clever but you haven't a clue
(What can you do?)

A two watt light bulb is brighter than you
I'm sick and tired of people like you

You want it, you got it
Come take it, it's over here
You want it, you got it
Come take it, is that not clear
You want it, you got it
Come take it, I'll do it for you
You want it, you got it
Come take it, just cross the line

The moral of the adventure is this
Take me for granted you are taking the piss
(Who love is this?)

I'd rather wind up with nothing at all
Than take a loser like you through it all

You want it, you got it
Come take it, it's over here
You want it, you got it
Come take it, is that not clear
You want it, you got it
Come take it, I'll do it for you
You want it, you got it
Come take it, just cross the line

Cross the line
Cross the line

You want it, you got it
Come take it, it's over here
You want it, you got it
Come take it, is that not clear
You want it, you got it
Come take it, I'll do it for you
You want it, you got it
Come take it, just cross the line

Why loser, die
Why loser, why
Why loser, die
Why loser

Stay With Me

I woke up this morning
And I walked down to the sea
I sat there on the long grass
Just staring at the sea

Counting all my blessings
And everything that you gave to me
Why is this complicated
Why can't you stay with me

Stay with me
Won't you stay
Stay with me
Won't you stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

I just like to hold on
To all the magic memories
I dread this place without you
Don't leave, I'm begging please

Holding back the memories
Holding back the years
Holding back the memories
Holding back the tears

Stay with me
Won't you stay
Stay with me
Won't you stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me
Stay with me

Apple Of My Eye

As the days go by
The apple of my eye
I'll always wait for you

And as a new day dawns
The darkness moves away
And I will wait for you

Remember, remember
The face of you
Surrender, surrender
The touch of you

Well it's hard to hold
The room is turning cold
The candle flickers still

And what I would not do
For the love of you
Would you hold on to me

Remember, remember
The face of you
Surrender, surrender
The touch of you

As the days the go by
The apple of my eye
I'll always wait for you

And as a new day dawns
The darkness moves away
And I will wait for you

Remember, remember
The face of you
Surrender, surrender
The touch of you

I will remember, I will remember the face of you
I will remember, I will remember the touch of you
I will remember, I will remember the face of you
I will remember, I will remember the touch of you

Black Widow

Finding solace
Finding solace somewhere
Seeking comfort
Seeking comfort somewhere

Over and over
Over she calls
Over and over
Over she falls

The black widow
Waiting for her lover
The black widow
Crying in her bedroom

Over and over
Over she calls
Over and over
Over she falls

(Pull me out)

Seeking comfort
Seeking comfort somewhere

And she cries, and she cries
Feeling lonely
She is lonely

And she dies, and she dies
Feeling lonely
She is lonely

Recognise recognise
The black widow
The black widow
Recognise, recognise
The black widow
The black widow
The black widow

October

October, October
the summer is over
I'm going through changes
I see you again

It's so thought provoking
emotion evoking
I can't turn around
I don't want to pretend

You stand in my way
with nothing to say
you think you're the world
I'm so lost without you
I'm sorry my friend
this is not the end
I'll do it without you
I'll do it again

You stand in my way
with nothing to say
you think you're the world
I'm so lost without you
I'm sorry my friend
this is not the end
I'll do it without you
I'll do it again
I'll do it again

October, October
the summer is over
I'm moving in circles
I'm trying to come in

It's my evolution
the only solution
the torment it's all that
I'm holding within

You stand in my way
you've nothing to say
you think you're the world
I'm so lost without you
I'm sorry my friend
this is not the end
I'll do it without you
I'll do it again

I'll do it again

Don't stand in my way
with nothing to say
and think you're the world
I'm so lost without you
I'm sorry my friend
this is not the end
I'll do it without you
I'll do it again

Don't stand in my way
with nothing to say
and think you're the world
I'm so lost without you
I'm sorry my friend
this is not the end
I'll do it without you
I'll do it again
I'll do it

Accept Things

You seem to forget
The place that we met
Protected and warm
In the perfect storm

I think you pretend
That you are my friend
It's easy to see
That you're envious of me

Hold, hold, hold, hold
Hold, hold

You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things
You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things
Accept things

You should not forget
The people you met
On the way up
Or on the way down

Hold, hold, hold, hold
Hold, hold

You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things
You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things
Accept things

Hold, hold, hold, hold
Hold

You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things
You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things
You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things
You should open your eyes
Make it easy to accept things

Angel Fire

Another lonely night in December
Jaweh, Jaweh, Jaweh
It is the time of year people remember
Jaweh, Jaweh
I can't find a word to say to you
I can't comprehend, I can't relate to you

Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher angel fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know
Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher angel fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know

I'm knowing this could be our last event
Jaweh, Jaweh, Jaweh
I'm knowing I am your youngest descent
I don't want to know your pain
I don't want to play the game

Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher angel fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know
Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher angel fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know

I can't find a word to say to you
I can't comprehend, I can't relate to you

Plain to see your faith in me
Take me higher angel fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know
Can't you see you're made for me
Take me higher angel fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know

Ecstasy

I can feel a pleasure, that's the pain
When I die, I died in vain
I can hear sweet temptations come
Come with me and we will fall

Ecstasy, misunderstood
Will you dance with me
As if I should
And in the morning
The sun will shine
Still I can't shake her
Get out of my mind

Mind, mind, mind, mind

I can feel it rushing through my veins
After they withdraw the pain
This must be the essence of it all
Stay with me and we will fall

Ecstasy misunderstood
Will you dance with me
As if I should
And in the morning
The sun will shine
Still I can't shake her
Get out of my mind

Mind, mind, mind, mind

Look you made me do this to myself
Look you made me do this to myself
Look you made me do this to myself
Look you made me do this to myself

Ecstasy, misunderstood
Will you dance with me
As if I should
And in the morning
The sun will shine
Still I can't shake her
Get out of my mind

Mind, mind, mind, mind

No Baggage

Switch Off The Moment

Some mental anguish in my head, wake me up I am not dead
Ignite a fire in my soul, a passing moment

Accumulating in my mind, are the thoughts I left behind
Accumulating in my head, switch off the moment

I ask you now please, will you catch me when I fall
I ask you now please, will you be there when I call

I ask you now please, will you catch me when I fall
Or are you there at all

Accumulating in my mind, are the thoughts I left behind
Accumulating in my head, switch off the moment

I ask you now please, will you catch me when I fall
I ask you now please, will you be there when I call

I'm begging on my knees, will you catch me when I fall
I'm begging now please, will you be there when I fall

Falling apart, I feel I'm falling away
I feel I'm falling apart, wake up

Show me the sun, show me the sun
I can't see the sun, I can't see the sun

Show me the sun, show me the sun
I can't see the sun, I can't see the sun

Borderline, personality Borderline, borderline, personality

Skeleton

I tried to face it
I tried to erase it
I tried to race it
I can't erase it

Driving in the slow lane
Watching everybody shooting by
In the fast lane, in the fast lane
Sitting here beside me
There is a shadow from my past
In the front seat I can heart my heartbeat
Faster, faster, faster, faster, faster

I tried to face it
I can't erase it
So I must face it
I must embrace it

I have wasted my time
Dwelling in the shadows from the past
In the front seat did you hear my heartbeat
Forward to the future I must move on I will let go
To the future
That's where I will soar
Higher, higher, higher, higher, higher

So I can face it
Then I will chase it
I will embrace it

You can't outrun your skeleton
No way, No way
You can't outrun your skeleton
No way, No way
Oh
No way, No way
Oh
No way, No way
Oh
No way, No way
Oh

In the corner of the room
I tried to face it
In the corner of the room
I must embrace it
In the corner of the room
And I will chase it
In the corner of the room
I will embrace it

It's You

It's you
It's you
It's you

You know you make me feel better
And I knew
I knew
I knew
When I was under the weather

Where did it all the time go
Where did it all the time go
It's you
It's you
It's you

You know you make me feel better
I remember the time when we were small
Planting seeds, pulling weeds
I remember the time when we were small
We did it all
But tell me where did it all the time go
Where did it all the time go
It's you
It's you
It's you
You know you make me feel better

It's you
It's you
It's you
You know you make me feel better
And I knew
I knew
I knew
When I was under the weather

Where did it all the time go
Where did it all the time go
It's you
It's you
It's you
You know you make me feel better

I remembered driving in the car
Our destiny was never far
I must haveasked ten thousand times
"Are we there?"
But tell me where did all the time go
Where did it all the time go
It's you
It's you
It's you
You know you make me feel better

I could not wait until I grew
I could not wait until I grew
I could not wait until I grew
I could not wait until I grew

I could not wait until I knew
I could not wait until I knew
I could not wait until I knew
I could not wait until I knew

I would love to go babk that car
Where our destiny was never far
I would love to go back that car
But I can't
It occurred to me today that made me
I wished those things away

Still It's you
It's you
It's you
You know you make me feel better
Whatever you do
Don't wish your days away
Whatever you do
Take it easy today
Take it easy today

The Journey

When I was lost
I saw you pointing towards the sun
I know I am not the only one standing here
and in the darkness I was walking through the night
I could see your guiding light, very clear

This is your life
This is your moment
This is your life
This is your moment

When I was weak we both went walking on the sand
We were walking hand in hand it appeared
Once set our footprints when you carried me along
It was then that I abandoned my fears

This is your life
This is your moment
This is your life
This is your moment

This is your life
This is your moment
This is your life
This is your moment

This is your moment
This is your life
your life
This is your time

Stupid

I can not erase this memory
Something that is trapped inside of me

Stupid, stupid
Stay here for a while
Sit down beside me
Oh, stay here for a while

Sing me a love song
Sing me a song x2

Something that I'm holding in my hands
Something that I will never understand
Do you live your life to be in love?
I can hear you calling from above

Stupid, stupid
Stay here for a while
Sit down beside me
Oh, stay here for a while

Stupid, It's stupid
Just stay here for a while
Sit down beside me
Oh, stay here for a while

Save me a love song
Save me a song x2

I cannot erase this memory
Erase this memory
Erase this memory

Stupid, stupid
Stay here for a while
Sit down beside me
Oh, stay here for a while

Sing me a love song
Sing me a song x2

Be Careful

I thought that he was insecure
But I don't think so anymore
Think about what you're living for
Now that you've opened up that door

Be careful what you're wishing
Be careful what you're wishing
Be careful what you're wishing for

You might scream
You might shout
Trying to suss it out
Sinking low

You might scream
You might shout
Trying to suss it out
Sinking low

For, the dictator, be careful what you're living for
Alcohol and cocaine, I think it's driving you insane

Be careful what you're wishing for (x3)
Now that you've opened up that door (x3)

You might scream
You might shout
Trying to suss it out
Sinking low

You might scream
You might shout

You might scream
You might shout
Trying to suss it out
Sinking low

I'll always wait for you

And as a new day dawns
The darkness moves away

Fly Through

Life, it's a wonderful ride, it's a difficult ride
An unpredictable ride
Trying to find what you are searching for
But I'm feeling all right, at the end of the night
At the end of the night
Still I haven't found what I'm searching for

You're older now and there is a lot that you're not privy to
You're older now and you're feeling blue
You're older now and there is a lot that you're not ready for
You're older now and you're feeling sore

Tonight, it's a beautiful night, it's a wonderful night
An unpredictable night
The pale moon is full, can you feel the magnetic pull
And I'm feeling alright, it's not the end of the night

It's not the end of the night
Now you've taken me in, you've gotten under my skin

You're older now and there is a lot that you're not privy to
You're older now and you're feeling blue
You're older now and there is a lot that you're not ready for
You're older now and you're feeling sore

Have you found what you're searching for (x3)
What are you searching for
Fly through
Fly through life...

Lunatic

Do you follow me
I think you're losing your mind

Throw down your sword
Come out of your chamber
You should throw
Throw down your sword
Come out of your chamber
Lunatic

Wanna play with me
Wanna stay with me

I think you're losing your mind

Throw down your sword
Come out of your chamber
You should throw,
Throw down your sword
Come out of your chamber,
Lunatic

There's no where you can hide
No, there's no where you can hide

Tranquilizer

I used to think when I was young
I used to think I was so strong
In all the days I'd never cried
I dunno why, I'd never cried
I'd rather hide

I used to think if I believed
In all my dreams, I'd never grieved
In all my days I'd never cried
I don't know why, I'd never cried
I'd rather hide

I'm not prepared, I'm not prepared, I'm not prepared
I'm not prepared, I'm not prepared, I'm not prepared
I'm running scared
I need the strength to carry on
I need to feel that I am strong
I need to feel that I won't fall
I'll never crawl, no I won't fall

Open the doors and bring it on
When we're together we are strong
There is no mountain we can't climb
I just need the tranquilizer
Desensitize her



Roses

Conduct

Now it's too late
I can see
That we should not be together
Now it's too late
We've come too far
And we should not be together

Destructive, destructive
Not conductive
Can't you see
Where we went wrong

Now it's too late
I can see
That we should not be together

Take back my life
Take back my heart
I know I can hold it together

Give back my life
Give back my heart
I know we can hold us together
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Enlightening, enlightening
When we're not fighting
We're not fighting
Can't you see
We should get along

It's not too late
I can see
I know we can hold it together

When we get along
We're really strong
We're really strong

When we get along
We're really strong
We're really strong

Conduct yourself, conduct yourself
Conduct yourself, conduct yourself

Conduct yourself
When we get along
Conduct yourself
We're really strong
Conduct yourself
We're really strong

Tomorrow

I think that you're mad
You spend a long time in your head
I knew that you're mad
You spend a long time in your head

If you could come away with me
You should come away with me
You should have some faith in me
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Tomorrow could be too late
I wish I could change the date
Tomorrow could be too late
If only you had some faith

Too young, too proud, too foolish
Too young, too proud, too foolish

You ask a lot of questions
You have too much time on your hands
To hell with conclusions
Why should we make so many plans

So you should come away with me
You should come away with me
You should have some faith in me

Tomorrow could be too late
I wish I could change the date
Tomorrow could be too late
If only you had some faith

Too young, too proud, too foolish
Too young, too proud, too foolish

Tomorrow could be so great
I wish I could change the date
Tomorrow could be so great
If only you had some faith

Fire And Soul

How to be unfaithful
How to be disgraceful

To lose yourself
To lose control
Fall off the fence
Fire and soul

To lose yourself
To lose control
Fall off the fence
Where is your fire and soul

I'll wait for you forever
I'll wait for you forever
I'll take you to my grave

Now in the beginning
How the room was spinning

Hold on to me
Hold on to you
Hold on to us
Is what we'll do

I'll wait for you forever
I'll wait for you forever
I'll take you to my grave, grave
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'll wait for you forever
I'll wait for you forever
I'll wait for you forever
I'll wait for you forever

To lose yourself
To lose control
Fall off the fence
Fire and soul

To lose yourself
To lose control
Fall off the fence
Where is your fire and soul

Raining In My Heart

I've seen it all
I've seen it all today
I cried a tear
I tried to turn away

But it's raining my heart
Every time we are apart
And the sun won't shine today
So I had to walk away

If I could fly
You know that I'd try
If I could fly

If I could fly
You know that I'd try
If I could fly

Raining in my heart
It is raining in my heart

So I must leave
The place where I will go
You cannot come
I guess you'll never know
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Still it's raining my heart
Every time we are apart
And the sun won't shine today
So I had to walk away

If I could fly
You know that I'd try
If I could fly

If I could fly
You know that I'd try
If I could fly

Raining in my heart
It is raining in my heart

Raining in my heart
Raining in my heart

Losing My Mind

Come in to bed
Switch off the light
Close your eyes
Sleep tonight
Think of all the things we did today
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You touch me then
We fall apart
I lose control
The hardest part
I wish that it could be another way

Losing, I'm losing
I'm losing my mind
Ruining, you're ruining
You're ruining my mind

You cut me deep
Like broken glass
I wonder when
This time will pass
Or will I fall asunder everyday

Sitting here
Beside the fire
The flames they grow
Just like desire
Will I hold asunder every day

Losing, I'm losing
I'm losing my mind
Ruining, you're ruining
You're ruining my mind

Schizophrenic Playboy

She meticulously curls her hair
Her hair, her hair, her long long hair
Applies mascara with the greatest care
With care, with care, to your mascara

She puts on her lipstick that is scarlet red
She's already fairly off her head
Fishnet stockings and a bottle of wine
She's fine, she's fine, she thinks she's fine
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Girls, you better watch out
Schizophrenic playboys
Who cannot control their toys

Girls, you better watch out
Schizophrenic playboys
Who cannot control their toys

Baby, baby when you'll come with me
With me, with me, please come with me
I'll take you places that you'd rather be
To be, to be, to come with me

Driving faster now in his car
Now she knows that she has gone too far
In the morning she is in his bed
His bed, his bed, her eyes are red.

Girls, you better watch out
Schizophrenic playboys
Who cannot control their toys

Girls, you better watch out
Schizophrenic playboys
Who cannot control their toys

I'm in, I'm out, I'm out, I'm in, I'm out, I'm out

Boys, you better watch out
Schizophrenic playgirls
Who cannot control their girls

Girls, you better watch out
Schizophrenic playboys
Who cannot control their toys

Waiting In Walthamstow

I got this thing in my head
When I awake in my bed
Well I was thinking about you when
I wondered if you thought about me

Astral Projection

Can you see
The colors in the air
Can you see
Am I hallucinating

I woke up
And I was walking down the stairs
I woke up
But I'm still sleeping here
Is this lucid dreaming, yeah
I look down a thousand miles, miles, miles
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
But I fall down
But I fall down
La da da da da da

But I fall down
But I fall down

Can you see me
I'm floating in the air
Can you wake me
I'm crying

You're lying next to me
I can't wake you
I'm trying

Can get me out of here

So Good

Have you ever had an empty heart
Have you ever had an empty heart
Did you think it'd ever fall apart

Have you ever had a lonely heart

You, you make me feel so good

Roses

Life is no garden of roses
More like a thistle in time
Sailing passed
Waiting for no one is time
Sailing fast
Waiting for no one this time

Now that you've killed me with your eyes
Why did you push me away
How will I make it without you
How will I go on my way
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Everything feels cold in the winter
Everything feels cold
Everything feels cold in the winter
Everything feels cold

Life is a garden of roses
Roses just wither and die

Know that you've killed me with your eyes
Why did you push me away
How will I make it without you
How will I go on my way
Life is a garden of roses
Roses just wither and die

Hip to the fact that we're all gonna die

The rat race

Forward advances
Wealthy and handsome
I turn on the beat just
To study the dancers
Your eyes are a river
You blink and I shiver
I regret being clever
But it's just dreams I deliver
Content with the knowledge (content with the knowledge)
That we dreamt it together
I loved you on paper
But never sent you the letter
Your eyes are a river
You blink and I shiver
I regret being clever
But it's just dreams I deliver

Talking to you

High Fashion

You could come over
You could come over
You could commit
You could commit

You could come over
You could come over
You could submit…

Talking to you, talking to you
Talking to you, I'm talking to you

No time to waste, get in, get out
No extra weight to bring us down, down, down

Plastic tape full of love
In between
Glassine heart, powder soul
Leather dream
Flashing lights, sirens call
Out to me
Flashing lights, sirens call

I'll walk beside you (walk beside you)
I'll walk beside you
I'll hold you near (hold you near)
I'll hold you near (hold you near)

Just hope that no one's watching me
When we connect and start to breathe

Plastic tape full of love
In between
Glassine heart, powder soul
Leather dream
Flashing lights, sirens call
Out to me
Flashing lights, sirens call

Watch Out

Something dark in your heart
Winks at me with a smile
Simply wrong from the start
Can't control this desire
We've lost the war
But less is more
And on and on
This time we're taking measures

Watch out, I'm bleeding (all over you)
Watch out, I'm bleeding
This time, I'm leaving (running from you)
This time, I'm leaving

Something cruel in your eyes
Something cold that we crave
We've committed a crime
And we may have to pay
We've lost the war
But less is more
And on and on
This time it's getting messy

Watch out, I'm bleeding (all over you)
Watch out, I'm bleeding
This time, I'm leaving (running from you)
This time, I'm leaving

Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving
Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving

Watch out, I'm bleeding (all over you)
Watch out, I'm bleeding
This time, I'm leaving (running from you)
This time, I'm leaving

Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving
Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving

The Moon

You see I make my way
You see I make my way
Oh brother
I don't understand you
Oh brother
I don't understand you

It's just a simple trait of who you are
Just a mirror-like reflection of your face
You see I make my way
The way I navigate

Oh brother
I don't understand you

The night was dark
The moon was high
The night was dark
The moon was high
The night was dark

The night was dark
The moon was high, high, high

The moon was shinning
The moon was shinning
She was falling apart

In the night she was pining

No, she's falling apart
No, she's falling apart
In the beginning
In the beginning
He had broken her heart
He had broken her heart

Underwater

Got nothing good for your kids
Their little souls made of stone
Forever haunting the dead
Won't leave the spirits alone

The sound of tin in my ears
I learned that comfort was cheap
The party lasted for years
And now I'm crippled you see

Pretty little thing (take it very slow)
Pretty little thing (take it very slow)
Pretty little thing (pretty little thing)

Pretty little thing (take it very slow)

When you're on your own
All alone

Take it very slow (pretty little thing)

We're losing oxygen
The fuel is slowly running out
We won't wake up again
But someone else will come around

We're losing oxygen
The fuel is slowly running out
We won't wake up again
But someone else will come around

We're losing oxygen

Loosen The Noose

Listen… did you hear that sound?
Somebody's walking close behind me
I hear their footsteps on the ground

Looking… then I turned around
He stopped advancing in his footsteps
He lifted up his head and frowned

One last time
I want to feel you near me
Together as one
One last time
A hand to heal your pain
Take it and run

So I take his cue
I start to walk away
But he keeps calling up behind me
Like a voice of yesterday

Loosen the noose up
Loosen the noose up
Loosen the noose
Loosen the noose

I remember you (I remember, I remember)
I remember you (I remember)
My god your face is so familiar (so familiar, so familiar)
I thought you'd never go away (I remember)

One last time
No point pretending anymore
I found true love
Six feet below

Just one time
I want to hold your soul with
My bare hands
And squeeze…

So I cupped my hands
And I took his face
I said you gotta lighten up boy
Some things in life you must erase

Loosen the noose up
Loosen the noose up
Loosen the noose
Loosen the noose

Capetown

(
Wake up and Smell the Coffee Bonus track )

I'm anticipating my trip to Africa
How i have always been waiting
Far too long
I'm not going to soundcheck
There's too much to do
I'm not going to soundcheck
I might fall for you
Rum dum dum dum dum day Africa
Rum dum dum dum dum day fall for you

Five o'clock in the morning
My feet will touch the ground
Five o'clock in the morning
No no sound
We could take a safari
All around
Go see Table (top) Mountain
In Capetown
Rum dum dum dum dum day Africa
Rum dum dum dum dum day fall for you

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

False

Something has changed and I don't know what to say.
I used to stand here alone and in my mind say...
The people who're calling you soon turn away
They could hate you tomorrow and love you today..

Because they're false
People can be so false sometimes
When they hold my hands
People can be so false sometimes

Something is standing in my way and I can't see
It's clouding up my vision it intimidates me
I didn't want to come here in the first place
You all designed it you all designed it

Because they're false
People can be so false sometimes
When they hold my hands
People can be so false sometimes

I didn't want it
I didn't want to come here...
In the first place
I didn't want it
I didn't want to come here...
In the first place

In the garden

( Dolores O' Riordan Demo 2005 )

I see you playing
In the garden

Outside my window
Oh, oh oh

You're like your father
I see right through you

Just like your father
I thought I knew you

Oh, oh oh, oh

It's a panic
In paradise

It's a panic
It's in paradise

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You can't cry

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You can't cry

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

I see her playing
In the garden

I was once like her
You did this to me

I don't remember
When this offense begun

I don't remember
I can't undo what's done

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You can't cry

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You can't cry

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You know why

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You know why

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

I'll keep my secret
With me until I die

I'll keep my secret
And I don't know why

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You can't cry

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

You can't come here
You know why

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

I can't go there
I won't cry

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)

I can't go there
I won't cry

(Round and round, and round)
(And round, and round)...

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

In the ghetto

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
'Cause if there's one thing that she don't need
It's another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, don't you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

Well the world turns
And a hungry little boy with a runny nose
Plays in the street as the cold wind blows
In the ghetto

And his hunger burns
So he starts to roam the streets at night
and he learns how to steal
And he learns how to fight
In the ghetto

Then one night in desperation
A young man breaks away
He buys a gun, steals a car,
Tries to run, but he don't get far
And his mama cries

As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
Face down on the street with a gun in his hand
In the ghetto

As her young man dies,
On a cold and gray Chicago mornin',
Another little baby child is born
In the ghetto

Letting go

( Dolores O' Riordan Demo 2005 )

If you live
In a dream World

Find it hard
To let go

If you give
Your affection

You will learn
To let go

Told her you'd there

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

Like you used to

When I think about the things I said to you last night
Well I was wrong, I didn't know what I was saying
Anything that wants you

You used to hold me so tight
But now it's gone, and you drastically ??
Don't you love me anymore, anymore, anymore?
Don't you see me, like you used to?
Like you used to.

You used to see me like nobody else could,
And now it's gone, the way you're falling forever, ever.
And when they told me then that you were no more
Should I leave? Or should I take it all behind me?

Don't you love me anymore, anymore?
Don't you see me, like you used to?
Like you used to.

I'm falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down
I'm falling down
Falling down, falling down, falling down
I believe you.

Mirror Lover

( Dolores O'Riordan with Jam & Spoon - Tripomatic Fairytales 3003 LP - 2003

There she goes, a real life reverie
Every move a pose, every curve a melody
There she goes, little can you know
You're just another dish on her menu

Cause she gathers glances
Puts them in her basket
Bathes in them and soaks herself
When she is all alone, all alone

She's addicted to your stares
But you could fade for all she cares
Your admiration gets her high
Just the thought of it can make her sight

She's a mirror lover, a mirror loving lady
She don't need a lover, get the message, baby
She's a mirror lover, a mirror loving lady

She breathes it in, fills her lungs with more
Of your devotion, that is all she needs you for
Fills her tank, sips on words like wine
Saves the rest for when you're gone tonight

Cause she gathers glances
Puts them in her basket
Bathes in them and soaks herself
When she is all alone, she's all alone

She's addicted to your stares
But you could fade for all she cares
Your admiration gets her high
Just the thought of it can make her sight

She's a mirror lover, a mirror loving lady
She don't need a lover, get the message, baby
She's a mirror lover, a mirror loving lady

One-woman show
Her aphrodisiac is her desired reflection
One-woman show
You're just her appetizer
You won't feel or taste her either

(One-woman show)
She's a mirror lover, a mirror loving lady
(Self-obsessed girl)
She don't need no lover, get the message, baby

She's a mirror lover, a mirror loving lady

New New York

(Stars - The Best Of 1992-2002)

New, new, new
New, new, new

New New York skyline
Wounds may heal in time
Don't crumble don't dismay
It's a new New York today

I look across these city streets
My heart is numb, it still beats
Nothing to say
There's nothing to say

I look across this empty room
My heart is still in gloom
There's nothing to say
I only can pray

New, new, new (x2)

New New York Skyline
Wounds may heal in time
Don't crumble don't dismay
It's a new New York today

I look across these city streets
My heart is cold, it beats
Thirtieth of May
Ground Zero today

New, new, new (x2)

I get on my knees and pray
For the heroes of the day
No more comfort I can find
For the loved ones left behind

They won't tear us apart! (x4)
No way!
New day!, new day!

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

Nothing left at all

Know it's over but the thoughts of you go on,
Nothing here, nothing left at all.

How I swore that I would would never feel like this again,
But then you , you brought it through.

Oh no is there any reason I should walk away,
Is it wrong, is it wrong to want to stay,

And I know if I had the choice I'd never let you go,
Do you know, do you really want to know.

Well now the thoughts of you just circle in my mind,
Hard to find, you were really hard to find.

Oh and although, though I swore I'd never feel like this again,
I can't take it anymore.

Because I know if I had the choice I'd never let you go,
Do you know, do you really want to know.

And I didn't think, I didn't think I'd think about you in this way,
Well really, you really made my day.

Now, now it's over but the thoughts of you go on,
Nothing here, nothing left at all.

How I swore I'd would never feel like this again,
But then you, you brought it through.

Pathetic sense

Time is an illusion baby, I'm on your side.
Love is a confusion baby, You'll never hide.
Come to the conclusion baby, Your love has died.
Time is an illusion baby, I'm on your side.
Time is an illusion baby, I'm on your side.
Love is a confusion baby, You'll never hide.
Come to the conclusion baby, Your love has died.
Time is an illusion baby, I'm on your side.
I want to jump on your head,
Until I get blisters,
I will drop bombs on your bed,
You'll be calling your sisters cos
Time is an illusion baby, I'm on your side.
Love is a confusion baby, You'll never hide.
Life was an attraction baby, but you never tried.
Now it's an attraction maybe, You should have died.
I want to jump on your head,
Until I get blisters,
I will drop bombs on your bed,
You'll be calling your sisters cos
Time is an illusion baby, I'm on your side.
Love is a confusion baby, You'll never hide.
Come to the conclusion baby, Your love has died.
Time is an illusion baby, I'm on your side.
Pathetic senses, I'm on your side.
Pathetic senses, I'm on your side.
Pathetic senses, I'm on your side.

Pure love

( Zucchero featuring Dolores O'Riordan )

[Dolores]
If not tonight
This is the strangest feeling
Something I can't control
Do I play the fool for you?

[Zucchero]
If not tonight
Waiting forever
Just to see your face
Waiting is all that I seem to do

Yeah-yeahhh
Puro Amore
Will another night exist like this again?

Yeah-yeahhh
Solo Amore
We will never get this moment back again

[Zucchero]
If not tonight
Underneath those stars

[Both]
Beneath the crescent

[Zucchero]
Sinking down into the sea

[Dolores]
It's not the time
That I will wait forever
If this is what you want
Waiting will be the end of me

Yeah-yeahhh
Puro Amore
Will another night exist like this again?

Yeah-yeahhh
Solo Amore
We will never get this moment back again

[Zucchero]
One day I will open your eyes
Underneath the stars

[Both]
Beneath the crescent

Yeah-yeahhh
Puro Amore
Will another night exist like this again?

Yeah-yeahhh
Solo Amore
We will never get this moment back again

Yeah Puro amore
Let it be with you tonight
There will never be a night
If not tonight

Tell me when my love

*** Thanx a lot to Angel fot this one ***

Sisterly Love

(Are you Listening Bonus Track - Dolores O'Riordan Solo)

Sister, sister, it's okay
We'll come together in a place one day
The problem really was she wasn't much like me
There were so many kids in the family
I really really wanted to be one of the boys
I couldn't really care for her girlish toys
I burried her dolls in the sand one day
In a beautiful pram at the top of the yard
I know she couldn't be psychologically scarred
About that beautiful pram at the top of the yard

Singin', sisterly love

Sister sister, it's okay
We'll come together in a place one day
The problem really was she wasn't much like me
There were so many kids in the family
This baby girl was a dream come true
Tell me what in the hell have i done to you?
The time has moved along and i have 2 girls now
They remind me of you and me somehow
I'm hoping and i'm praying that they both will be
More together in life than you and me

Stars

(Stars - The Best Of 1992-2002)

The stars are bright tonight
And I am walking nowhere
I guess I will be alright
Desire gets you nowhere

And you are always right
And my, you are so perfect

Take you as you are
I'll have you as you are
I'll take you as you are

I love you just the way you are
I'll have you just the way you are
I'll take you just the way you are
Does anyone love the way they are?


The stars are bright tonight
A distance is between us
And I will be okay
The worst I've ever seen us

Still I have my weaknesses
Still I have my strengths
And still I have my ugliness
But I…..

I love you just the way you are
I'll have you just the way you are
I'll take you just the way you are
Does anyone love the way they are? (x2)

Star, star...

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

Take my soul away

That was some revealing light
That you shone on me last night
Have you turned away from me
Because you know that I can't see?

But if you leave me in the night,
Well then you're leaving me in spite
And if you leave me in the day
Well then you'll take my soul away

Nothing ever happens to me
Though I still can't see the things that you see.
Was anybody there?
Does anybody care?

No, nobody to show me the way
No, nobody to tell me to stay
No, nobody was there
No, nobody does care

That was some revealing light
That you shone on me last night
Have you turned away from me?
Because you know that I can't see

And if you leave me in the night
Well then you're leaving me in spite
And if you leave me in the day
Well then you'll take my soul away

If you leave me in the night
Well then you're leaving me in spite
And if you leave me in the day
Well then you'll take my soul away.

The butterfly

( Angelo Baldarameti feat. Dolores O'Riordan )

I sat there
Waiting and waiting
The sun light feel
The willow seal
I sat upon

He could feel my eyes following him
As he furthered
Helplessly

How could you fear something so beautiful
I will take with the palm of my hands
I will bring you into her world for you to see

There was nothing to fear for
You're afraid of me
There was nothing to fear for
You're afraid of me

She sat there
Smiling as i approached her
My revelation
For her to see

Her greatest fear was beautiful
And he put a dream affecting even me

How could you fear something so beautiful
I will take with the palm of my hands
I will bring you into her world for you to see

There was nothing to fear for
You're afraid of me
There was nothing to fear for
You're afraid of me
You're afraid of me

*** Thanx a lot to Angel fot this one ***

The sun does rise

Nightime has when all was still
Moon shone the way as we climbed the hill
When we arrived we raised our hands
Now the down has come now we understand

The sun does rise in the eastern sky
And love soon comes watch over I

The road was long yes we travelled far
Thought long dark nights without guiding star
Visions of an angel came along the way
Told us "don't be fearful for there comes a brighter day "

The journey's been an epic
Sometimes I've been so down
Stranded in a lonely bar the other side of town
Yes we've travalled day and night for many a poor mile
Now it all makes sense as we see the morning smile.

Uncertain

Tears on your face honey
You're a total disgrace, oh why
Why did you bring me here

Oh start all over again honey
You still treat me the same, oh why
Why did you bring me here

Oh you had everything
I could ever want
Won't you tell me why
Why can't you live here

Oh so uncertain in love
you're so uncertain in love
So uncertain in love

Driving in the car honey
You mistook me by far, oh why
Why did you bring me here

Leaves in the wind
You had nothing to send, oh why
Why did you bring me here

*** Thanx a lot to Nate who corrected a mistake ***

Willow Pattern

(Are you Listening Bonus Track - Dolores O'Riordan Solo)

Dreaming of the willow pattern
A phase I'm going through
Dreaming of the willow pattern
There's something I should do

I'd never see the world without you
You opened up my eyes
I'd never see the world without you
And now I realise

Never turn around
Never transit / chance it
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
Never turn around
Never transit / chance it
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards

You should never take a thing for granted
You only miss it when it's gone
And it's stupid to be holding grudges
Because we only got so long

So long [x7]

I'm dreaming of the willow pattern
She kept it in her room
An oriental china set
A gift I would assume

She told me how you loved her so much
That everybody died
Another universal theme
Don't hold it all inside

Never turn around

Never transit / chance it
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
Never turn around
Never transit / chance it
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards

You should never take a thing for granted
You only miss it when it's gone
And it's stupid to be holding grudges
Because we only got so long

So long [x7]

I affiliate with you [x6]

I know we'd all have died

Never turn around
Never transit / chance it
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards
Never turn around
Never transit / chance it
Never play dead
Don't ever walk backwards

You should never take a thing for granted
You only miss it when it's gone
And it's stupid to be holding grudges
Because we only got so long

Without You

(Ordinary Day EP / Dolores O'Riordan Solo)

Nothing seems to be worth while without you
A part of my existence is not here without you

You have made your bed and you lie on it now
You have made your bed and you lie on it

I try to switch off my mind, but it's rolling
Rolling on an iceberg, moving down towards the water

You have made your bed and you lie on it now
You have made your bed and you lie on it

Aaah...

So far across the water you were always on my mind
Your love and understanding you were always on my mind
My mind

Maybe I just can't survive without you

Maybe I don't want to live without you

You have made your bed and you lie on it now
You have made your bed and you lie on it

So far across the water you were always on my mind
Your love and understanding you were always on my mind
My mind

Uuuh...

Without you, without you
Without you

Without you, without you
Without you, without you

Yesterday's gone

I heard she loved you, I heard she cared,
I heard she miscarried and you were scared.

Did you run from the one,
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's gone there's no return,
And she cries all night.

Did you run from the one
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's done there's no return,
And she cries all night.
Solo.

I believe that a woman can be a slave to a man.
I believe that love that you gave and we try it again.

Will you return to the one,
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's gone there's no return,
And she cries all night.

Will you return to the one,
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's done there's no return,
And she cries all night.

Did you run from the one,
Who conceived your child?
Yesterday's gone there's no return,
And she cries all night.
