Look up British singer/songwriter Imogen Heap on the online music forum Myspace.com and scroll down to the 'Sounds Like' box. Sounds Like No other ' reads the pithy, but accurate description. In fact, truer words have never been written about the hypnotic vex of songs on her stunning second solo album Speak For Yourself. From her earliest memories of improvising at the piano 'it was the biggest toy that made the best and most noise' at home, hour after hour in the sleepy village just outside of London where she grew up to the electro-zen-like fugues she hears in her head when riding her bike through the streets of England's most fabled city, the classically trained, techno geekess, Imogen has always preferred a left-of-kilter soundtrack of her own making to any by-the-book-coda of pop music. The stirring current of songs flowing through Speak For Yourself ripple with an alluring intimacy rarely found in the electro-inspired genre. 'That's because, I like to believe I'm genre-less!' quips Imogen 'I want for music to stimulate, excite and surprise me all over again' Whether it's the punctuated sounds, and halting breath filled silences in songs such as the angelic 'Hide And Seek,' or the bouncy 'Goodnight And Go,' or the subtly drum-tinged 'Headlock', or the whispery 'The Walk,' it's clear Imogen is a slave to nothing but her own muse. Recorded in her East London studio ' 'I've had a not so secret love affair with making music on computers since I was a teenager. Wouldn't it be great if in real life you could 'delete' or 'duplicate', 'save' or 'recall'? Or speak in many voices and languages at the pull down of a program?' she says ' Imogen utilized everything and anything at her disposal, from circuit bent children's toys, to carpet roll inner tubes to the rumbling soothages of passing trains. 'There are many moments during the course of making an album where things don't go as planned - mostly gear misbehaving but gear can equally make some great sounds when it's in a mood!' The silver lining to some of these situations became 'Hide and Seek' and 'Headlock'. Forced to use gear that was co-operating though perhaps needed a little dusting off!

An auteur in the truest sense of the word, even Imogen's previous music persona as the female axis with the alt-fave duo Frou Frou (with producer and longtime collaborator Guy Sigsworth playing the man - producer of Madonna, among others) garnered her a drawer full of comparisons to strong-female-solo types. But Imogen's knack for path-finding, revelatory soundscapes off the beaten path mirror her own zig-zag musical journey (she was a solo artist before joining Frou Frou only to fly solo again), as she's now poised for acceptance with a growing contingency of U.S. music fans. After turning down major record label deals the fearless artist even re-mortgaged her London flat to finance her declaration of independence, but not before making several futile rounds to various financial institutions seeking their possible support 'I traipsed my way round every bank but I couldn't get a loan,' she says. 'I had '10,000 on my credit card and I couldn't pay my bills. It seems banks and musicians don't get along too famously!' but just before despair could stick in its claws, Heap's luck changed. Clocking a 'For Sale' sign outside her block of flats was, she says, like a little light bulb going on: 'I couldn't help wondering just how much I could sell my flat to myself for.' The flat had almost doubled in price. With nothing to stop her now, Imogen took the cash out of the property and with money to burn purchased lots of sparkly new recording equipment on her 25th Birthday as a present to herself, She then set about making exquisitely personal and aptly titled Speak For Yourself in a burst of experimentation. As if that wasn't enough Heap then set up Megaphonic Records to release her most treasured possession in the UK. 'It was quite liberating, actually,' she says. 'Probably because I never had an opportunity to do a whole studio album at my own pace before-entirely on my own. So, at first, I was ignoring the piano, just having fun and playing with all my toys. But eventually I got back round to the piano, like on 'The Moment I Said It.' Every sound you hear (aside from the strings) stems from the piano, but still I'm chopping things up.' That kind of playfulness is a trademark of Imogen's heaping (no pun intended). Her mystical/whimsical harmony leaning over diverging threads of sound and melody, all of it bottlenecking into riveting vignettes that pique the imagination. Ultimately, it would be due to such enigmatic captures and an often downright sultry vocal presence ('your music is touching to the max' ' blogs one online fan) combined with her intuitively tweaked musical arsenal - Piano/Vocoder/glitch-friendly samples, strings, harps, bells and drum machines - that would spark American record companies to come calling.

A serendipitous brush-up with the photogenic but angst-filled American TV soap, The O.C., furthered her mystique. The popular teen show, which has gathered an impressive musical resume in the past couple of years, (rumored to receive more than 400 music submissions per week) featured Imogen's glorious 'Hide And Seek,' on its Season 2 finale this past May (with 'Goodnight And Go' being included on the soundtrack Music From The O.C. Mix 4), awakening a potential American fan base to the radiant atmospherics of Heap's repertoire.'I'm eternally grateful to The O.C. for braving such an off kilter song to feature in that spot. The response to that episode has been amazing,' says Imogen. 'And I was ecstatic that suddenly, after putting so much of myself into this album and my transition to going solo again, I was going to be exposed to a whole new audience.' The warm reception of the music savvy O.C. audience was indeed immediate. In less than a week 'Hide And Seek' moved from virtual obscurity to # 32 on Billboard's Hot 100 Download chart. Many more stateside fans started following her weekly blog on Imogenheap.com (affectionately referring to her as Immi) and set in motion a stream of requests for Imogen's music from other TV shows ' CSI and Six Feet Under among them - and movies (most recently on the Reese Witherspoon/Mark Ruffalo movie/soundtrack Just Like Heaven, for which Imogen contributed a cover rendition of the classic 'Spooky' -once made famous by Dusty Springfield. And in 2004, Actor/Director Zach Braff personally selected the Frou Frou track, 'Let Go,' to appear on the grammy winning soundtrack to his movie Garden State. 'My music lends itself to soundtracks, I think, because it is so layered and orchestrated. They feel and sound right at home on the big screen.'

Ever since her mercurial 1998 debut, I Megaphone, and her 2002 Frou Frou collaboration with Sigsworth, the ethereal Details (Island Records), with its acclaimed cult single 'Breathe In,' Imogen has catalogued her dreamscapes through music. 'I can't say I always wanted to be a rock star, but I've always expressed myself through music it's the easiest and most enjoyable way to lose myself. When I'm composing the best way I can describe it is ' when you know you're really on to something ' like when you're traveling home on a familiar route and you start to daydream ' then before you know it you find yourself at your front door searching for your keys and you've no idea how you got there, that's what happens to me when I'm creating on a good day.'  Imogen is more than aware that time will be moving quite fast in the next several months. Touring is already scheduled (she's past opened up for diverse artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Coldplay and Norah Jones) and ever increasing notoriety beckons as critics and music fans familiarize themselves with the highly regarded Speak For Yourself, released to much acclaim in England this past July. 'I'm interested in how people will categorize the album. Let's face it, everyone draws comparisons I do it myself.' When asked to have a go at it, Imogen laughs. 'I don't know'.. more Donnie Darko than Dirty Dancing, more Absynth than apple juice, more 'where no man has gone before' than 'down the pub', more 'crop circles in the carpet' than 'climb the highest mountain'. I hope more likely that you've never heard anything like it before!' 'The album hosts the broadest spectrum of songs I've ever done. Just when you think it's going in one direction, it goes off down the road in another. I hope it sounds like I've had fun making it, because I did,' she pauses for a second. 'Very free is how I'd describe it.' 'Wade in the sonic joy, Pleasure the wave and synchronize, Sway in the sonic joy' sings a cryptic Imogen. And no wonder. The girl just lives, breathes and loves making music!

Getting scared 

Turn your ugly face
Are you so surprised to see me
Yeah I was your little childhood playground toy 

And if I remember 
Yeah if I do remember rightly
I said the tables would be turned around boy 

Who's getting scared now 
Tell me, tell me how does it feel
It feels so good from where im standing 

The only times of my life
The sun was meant to shine for me
You made it pour down, pour down with tears of rain 

Dug my pride with a knife
Encaged by your obsession with me 
Time was mental torture and screams of justified pain 

So ya gonna chase me now boy
Yeah ya gonna corner me now boy
You think ya gonna threaten me now boy
Somehow I dont think so 

Yeah ya gonna stamp me down now boy
Yeah ya gonna crush me down now boy
You think ya gonna threaten me now boy
Somehow I dont think so 

Who's getting scared now, tell me,
Tell me how does it feel
It feels so good from where im standing 

Yeah youre getting scared now, piggy,
Go ahead and squeal
It sounds so nice from where im standing 

Who's getting scared?
Who's getting scared now? 

Sweet religion 

When my body wants to go
Tell me will my mind and soul
Live on and on forever
Am I on another level
A learning vessel of several 
Lessons to make me more cleverer 

My sweet little religion
My sweet little religion you mean everything to me
My sweet little religion
My sweet little religion how does it feel 

Written in that book of love
Does it say your name above 
The name by which they call me
And is it written in liquid red 

'Cause nothing else will do instead for reassuring eternity 

Will you be there when I need you? 

Begin end enemy friend heaven hell sick well
Truth lies husbands and wives, whisper shout in out in out
Laughter cry ask reply - good bad happy sad
Right wrong outcast belong, caged free you and me 

You have the answer to all of these 

Oh me, oh my 

Quiet now in sleepy dreams 
To me it seems the only time to be
Just me

Bombarded by the phone, in my own home 
Can't get the space that I need
And how I need it, yeah

Oh me, yeah, oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life, yeah lalala

Crowded by the city, all around me 
Need some silence from the loud
And noisy crowds

And i'm trying to catch a breath through the air of death
Can't see the sun for the clouds
Those dirty clouds

And the night has no compassion for your actions
When you're trying to get away
From the hard day, yeah

And I need someone to talk to apart from you
But I guess that's just the way
Come what may, oh

Oh me, yeah, oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life

Oh God 
Are you there 
Are you there
Are you there
No, yeah

God 
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
Yeah
Are you out there 
Are you there
Are you there
Are you there
If so where are you hiding
I'm having trouble finding you 

Oh me, oh my
Oh me, me, me, me oh my
Oh when I look
When I look at my life
Oh me, oh my
When I look at my life

Oh God 
Are you there 
Are you there

Shine 

Rain drain my play away
Sun gun me down and burn me
Nature hates me today
My head distorts reality 

Madness just moved into my shadow 

Shine - I will not cry and I will not die no
Shine - I will be there for me
Shine - I will not cry and I will be mine
I'll shine - shine 

Who waltzed me into this
And I now stuck here forever
Luck just gave me a kiss
Then lashed me down with a leather strap 

Trying to learn to swim without any water 

Trying just to begin just when youre in for the slaughter 

Shine - I will not cry and I will not die no
Shine - I will be there for me
Shine - ill be just fine if I stay all mine
I'll shine - shine, 

You will love me as a winner 

Why? 

Whatever 

You, you come to me
So perfectly yeah
So perfectly made 

And yeah all that you are 
And yeah all that you said
You're so exquisitely bred
Hmm yeah what more can I say 

So yeah, yeah
I guess its alright
Yeah, no
I guess it's alright whatever
Yeah no
I guess its alright
Yeah no
I guess its alright whatever 

And i, I hate ya for
For letting me fall for you
Just like a fool 

And now im all psyching out
Hmm 'cause all were about 
Is this ugly phone and its all I have
To look forward to, yeah. 

Dreaming, of you lying in my bed
Just like how we were just days before
Oh just leave me just get out of my head
'Cause I cant take this torture any more 

Youre so far away, yeah
Why are you so far away
From me. 

Angry angel 

This is an obsession, a kind of agression with himself 
It's the way hell always be
He loves to rebel to go against his ten commandments
For him, thats just being free. 

And he always will, get his thrills, the only way he knows how
Well it might make you frown
But he loves, being that dove, roaming where he cares to go
To a state of mind that no-one knows 

Over there stands my angry angel 
And shes shaking her head, in disgrace with me
Yeah over there stands my angry angel
And she's frowning like hell, but i'm not feeling guilty 

Over and over again, more and more for the pain
To release himself, from this shell
Time after time, you may glare at
Him for the way he looks like something drawn up from hell 

But that's just his cover
From what is under it
All his imagination, his 
Passion for a creation 
Which he has discovered, 
Uncovered a world, of
Amazing sensations
His own little nation 

I dont care, 
I'm flying 

Candlelight

I am alone, surrounded by
The colour blue
Inside a poem, the only 
Words I ever knew
Washing my hands, of the 
Many years untold
For now I am banned, my 
Future is to unfold 

Would you take my 
Candlelight
Would you take my 
Candlelight
Would you take 
My candlelight
Away from me 

I am blind
My eyes
Are 
Covered
From 
The 
Outside
For I have lied, now all 
There is left for me
To do is hide
Take in a deep 
Breath, I lift 
My head
For I am a new man
And I arise from my bed 

This is all there is, I can see that now
I have to be careful with it, now its been found
So fragile, but powerful, this is the light
Of my destiny stay with me, through every night 

Rake it in

I am here again
Tied up in your torture frame
Printed paper, guilty to blame
The story stays the same 

Dry me out
Run me down
Burn me out
And rake it in, you rake it in
Rake it in, you rake it in, yeah 

A slave upon your plate
I am your dreams, yeah your life and your bait
Selfish schemes, I proceed, you await
You my indefinite hate 

Do you know what my chopping blocks for?
Do you know what my hanging braids for?
Do you know what my chamber maids for?
Can you guess what i, what I have in store for you? 

Come here boy

I'ts dark in here
Visions are flashing into my head
As I reminisce
My reoccuring dreams and you said 

I'm falling, falling for you babe,
And my feelings are gettin stronger, 
So why dont you stay with me for a
For a little longer 

Come here boy,
Oh come here boy,
Come here boy
Oh come here boy 

I know that my face 
Is only too familiar to your sleep
I can see it in your eyes
I can tell by your body heat 

Why are you taking so long 
You need to come and find me, honey
To set your mind at rest
And let your dreams run free. 

You know, im no stranger in your dreams 

I'm craving i'm howling im begging and pleading
Be mine tonight 

Oh and im waiting im dying, im wanting and needing
To show you a night 

Where I'll be touching and holding caressing and giving you
Your every fantasy
I'll get you dreaming and lusting burning and praying
For more of this ecstasy. 

Useless 

I am a mirror, with no reflection
I am a razor, without my blade
I am the daylight, when the moon shines no
Who will want to make my sandcastle thats already made 

I feel so useless, do you 

Speak to an ear deaf to my voice
Look through your fear, still blind to my way
I reach to hold you, but I dont feel you there, do you 
Even realise im here am I just wasting away?
No wasting away
Living, inside you play 

My dying prayer, sealed in a scream
Unwelcome, and a concious dream
I am your whore, without a name
I climb to fall, to begin again, to begin again
I climb to fall, suffer, hatred, deceit and pain
Anger, regret, loving in vain 

I am an arrow, with no direction
My life your tarot, my picture your fate
I'm your becoming, so ill always be nothing
If I ever break away from you that day forth, youll be living
My hate
Oh god help his fate
I'll watch you, watch you suffocate 

Sleep 

How can it feel so nice?
Why does it feel so right?
I think ive been somewhere special
I want to go back there 

Sleep
I think I will
Go back to sleep 

Oh it's so cold and shivery outside my cocoon
Now i'm on my way 

Sleep
Oh sleep
Sleep

 

Speak For Yourself

Headlock

Distant flickering
Greener scenery
This weather's bringing it all back again
Great adventures
Faces in condensation
I'm going outside and take it all in

You say too late to start
Got your heart in a headlock
I don't believe any of it
You say too late to start
With your heart in a headlock
You know you're better than this

Wear a different pair
Do something out of step
Throw a stranger an unexpected smile
With big intentio
Still posted at your station
Always on about the day it should have flied

You say too late to start
Got your heart in a headlock
I don't believe any of it
You say too late to start
With your heart in a headlock
You know you're better than this

Afraid to start
(How can you lose?)
Got your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
I don't believe any of it
(How can you lose?)
You say too late to start
(How can you lose?)
With your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
You know you're better than this

You've been walking
You've been hiding
And you look half-dead half the time
Monitoring you, like machines do
You've still got it
I'm just keeping an eye

You say too late to start
Got your heart in a headlock
I don't believe any of it
You say too late to start
With your heart in a headlock
You know you're better than this

Afraid to start
(How can you lose?)
Got your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
I don't believe any of it
(How can you lose?)
You say too late to start
(How can you lose?)
With your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
You know you're better than this

Goodnight & go

Say goodnight and go

Skipping beats
Blushing cheeks
I am struggling
Daydreaming
Bed scenes in
The corner cafe
And then i'm left in bits
Recovering tectonic
Tremblings
You get me every time

Why do you have to be so cute
It's impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It's bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

Follow you home
You've got your headphones on
And you're dancing
Got lucky, beautiful shot
You taking everything off
Watch the curtains wide open
Then you fall in the same routine
Flicking through the TV
Relaxed and reclining
And you think you're alone

Oh why do you have to be so cute
It's impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It's bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

One of these days
You'll miss your train
And come stay with me
Say goodnight and go
We'll have drinks
And talk about things
Any excuse to stay awake with you
You'll sleep here
I'll sleep there
But then the heating may be down again
At my convenience
We'd be good
We'd be great together

Why do you have to be so cute
It's impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It's bad enough we get along so well

Say goodnight and go
Why's it always always
Goodnight and go
Oh darling not again
Goodnight and go

*** Thanx a lot to Immi herself for this one ***

Have You Got It In You

It takes a lot
To be always on form
It takes a lot
I maybe not
All the time
All I've got
Maybe not

Been one of those days,
(To get in, to get in, to get in)
Safety first don't push
What's the hurry?
(To get in, to get in, to get in)
One nerve remaining
Waiting on one look, have you got it?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?

All at once
Not a whisper nor word
Then all at once

Let me have it all
Let me have a battle on
Easy target look
Can we just, just get it over with?
It's getting worse, against all the odds,
It's getting worse

Guard down
Floor's yours
Last man standing
Can we just get it over with?

Been one of those days
Safety first don't push
(Don't push me)
What's the hurry?
Cause there's one nerve remaining
Waiting on one look
Have you got it?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?

Blue, blue, day make me blue
Head down, quick
Take cover, big girl in a mood
Blue you, make me anymore blue
Long spin, shout
Power clean
Right out of your suit

Been one of those days,
Safety first don't push
What's the hurry?
One nerve remaining
Waiting on one look
Have you got it?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?

Loose ends

Doing everything by halves
You got a real flare with excuses
Meeting someone at the bar
Where loose ends still have uses

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)
So what you say
We give it up and walk away?
We're overrated, anyway

We're kissing without kissing
And got it down to a fine art
Love's supposed to keep you young and frisky,
But we grew up and wide apart
Not now, not ever, no
It's never a good time
How will the good times ever roll on?
Comparing photos
Then and now
Now and then
Just wondering
Where it all went wrong

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)
So what you say
We give it up and walk away?
Nothing to salvage anyway

Want to, oh
Need to, oh
Try to, oh
None of the above
Want to, oh
Need to, oh
Try to, oh
None of the above
Want to, oh
Need to, oh
Try to, oh
None of the above
Liar

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)
So what you say
We give it up and walk away?
We're overrated, anyway

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)

We give it up and walk away?
Nothing to salvage anyway

Hide and seek

Where are we
What the hell is going on
The dust has only just began to fall
Crop circles in the carpet, sinking, feeling
Spin me around again and rub my eyes
This can't be happening
When busy streets a mess with people would stop to hold their heads heavy

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines?
All those years they were here first

Oily marks appear on walls
Where pleasue moments hung before
The takeover, the sweeping insensitivity of this
Still life

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines
Oh, you won't catch me around here
Blood and tears they were here first

Hmm what you say
Oh that you only meant well, well of course you did
Hmm what you say
Hmm that it's all for the best, of course it is
Hmm what you say
That it's just what we need, you decided this
Hmm what you say
What did she say

Ransom notes keep falling at your mouth
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs
Speak no feeling no I don't believe you
You don't care a bit you don't care a bit

You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit

*** Thanx a lot to Immi herself for this one ***

Clear the area

Knock, knock
Are you alone?
No one's out here and I was not followed
Love, love
You're already home
Party's over and you
Don't look so good

You find your way back down
And I'll keep the area clear
(Please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here
(Right here, right here)

Low light
Mercury morning
No need to stay as it's always nothing
But your eyes tell a whole other story
And I feel the weight of the world
Won't talk
You won't try
Just move
It's too still in your sadness
Cry
Give up
It's OK
You've just got to trust me

You find your way back down
And I'll keep the area clear
(Please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here
(Right here, right here)

Slowly
Darling
Nobody means anymore to me than you
If you're in
Baby then I'm in
Into this
With you, always
Careful
Close to the edge
(You're scaring me)
Fall in to my arms
Away with it all
Fall into love
Love
Love

You find your way back down
And I'll keep the area clear
(Please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here
(Right here, right here)

You find your way back down
(Way back down)
And I'll keep the area clear
(So please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here

Daylight Robbery

Don't mind me just crusing by
By the girl with the balloon
Good it looks like we're the only ones around
Caught on CCTV
Heading towards the city lights
Winking diamonds at me arms stretched out now

Ha-ooh
It gets me everytime
Ha-ooh
It gets me everytime

Sexy baby
Happiness and silhouettes
Revolving in the deep water
Indigo
It's high tide
Night sky
Pleasure moment
Thinking big
Thinking positive
And itching to get on with it
It's all stops out

Excess
Is the new moderation
(Get dressed up)
Raise glasses
On repeat and again
Again, again, again, again
Again, again, again, again

Ha-ooh
It gets me everytime
Ha-ooh
It gets me everytime

Oh, wade in the sonic joy
Pleasure the wave and syncrhonize
Sway in the sonic joy

Ha-ooh
It gets me everytime
Ha-ooh
It gets me everytime

Everytime
It gets me right here
Everytime
It gets me right here
Everytime

The Walk

Inside out
Upside-down
Twisting beside myself
Stop that now
Cause you and I were never meant to meet
I think you'd better leave
It's not safe in here
I feel a weakness coming on

Alright then
(Alright then)
I could keep your number for a rainy day
That's where this ends
No mistakes, no misbehaving
Oh, I was doing so well
Could we just be friends?
I feel a weakness coming on

It's not meant to be like this
Not what I planned at all
I don't want to feel like this, yeah
No, it's not meant to be like this
Not what I planned at all
I don't want to feel like this
So that makes it all your fault

Inside out
Upside down
Twisting beside myself
Stop that now
You're as close as it gets without touching me
Oh no, don't make it harder
Than it already is
Mmm, I feel a weakness coming on

It's not meant to be like this
Not what I planned at all
I don't want to feel like this, yeah
No, it's not meant to be like this
Not what I planned at all
I don't want to feel like this
So that makes it all your fault

Big trouble
Losing control
Primary resistance at a critical low
On the, on the double gotta get a hold
Point of no return
One second to go

No response on any level
Red alert this vessel's under siege
Total overload
All systems down
They've got control
There's no way out
We are surrounded
Give in, give in
And relish every minute of it

Freeze
Or make it forever
I feel a weakness coming on

It's not meant to be like this
Not what I planned at all
I don't want to feel like this, yeah
No, it's not meant to be like this
It's just what I don't need
Why make me feel like this?
It's definitely all your fault

Be like this
La la la la la la la la
It's all your fault
(Feel like this)
La la la la la la la la
It's all your fault
(Feel like this)
La la la la la la la la
It's all your fault
(Feel like this)
La la la la la la la la
It's all your fault

*** Thanx a lot to StephenJeremy & Steve for this one ***

Just for now

Just for now, just for now, just for now
Just for now, just for now, just for now

It's that time of year
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside
If just for a little while
Tears stop right here
I know we've followed a bumpy ride
I'm secretly on your side

How did you know?
It's what I always wanted
You can never have had too many of these
Will you quit kicking me under the table
I'm trying
Will somebody make her shut up about it?
Can we settle down please?

It's that time of year
(Just for now, just for now)
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside
If just for a little while
(Just for now, just for now)
Tears stop right here
(Just for now, just for now)
I know we've followed a bumpy ride
I'm secretly on your side
(Just for now, just for now)

Bite tongue
Deep breaths
Count to ten
Nod your head
(Sniff, sniff)
I think something is burning
Now you've ruined the whole thing
Muffle the smoke alarm
Whoever put on this music had
Better quick sharp remove it
Pour me another
Oh, don't wag your finger at me

It's that time of year
(Just for now, just for now)
Leave all our hopelessnesses aside
If just for a little while
(Just for now, just for now)
Tears stop right here
(Just for now, just for now)
I know we've followed a bumpy ride
I'm secretly on your side
(Just for now, just for now)

Get me outta here, get me outta here
Get me outta here
Get me outta here, get me outta here
Get me outta here
Get me outta here, get me outta here
Get me outta here

Closing in

I can't wait
To be with you
No, I just can't sit still
Are we there, yet?
Takes me back
I remember
Such a magical place
It was all you

Closing in
I hope that you make it
Closing in
I hope that you find your way

Frame by frame
Red speed ahead
A city dissolving
The thread of your love in headlights
Is it safe now?
Will your arms be open?
I'll just have to kiss you
Try and stop me

Closing in
I hope that you make it
Closing in
I hope that you find your way
Closing in
It's all that I want in the whole world
Closing in
Please be there
Please be there

What are you like?
Where did you get to?
No word, no nothing
You didn't hold me for any longer
Did you walk for the fear of love?
Or don't you believe enough
Well, I'll cover both of us
You can
Leave that to me

Closing in
I hope that you make it
Closing in
I hope that you find your way
Closing in

The moment I said it

The moment I said it.
The moment I opened my mouth.
Lead in your eyelids
Bulldoze the life out of me.
I know what you're thinking.
But darling you're not thinking straight
Suddenly things just happened, we can't explain'

It's not even light out but you've somewhere to be
No hesitation'no I've never seen you like this.
And I don't like it'I don't like it...I don't like it at all.

Just put back the car keys'or somebody's gonna get hurt.
Who are you calling at this hour
Sit down, come round, I need you now.
We'll work it all out, together.
But we're getting nowhere tonight.
Now sleep, I promise it'll all seem better'somehow'in time.

It's not even light out
Suddenly'oh, you've somewhere to be.
No hesitation'no I've never seen you like this.
You're scaring me'you're scaring me'you're scaring me'to death.

Don't'oh (smash)'
Please don't'oh (I do, please, another one)
Don't'oh (smash)'
Please don't'oh (I do, please, another one)

I'm losing you.
Trust me on this one
I've got a bad feeling
Trust me on this one
You're gonna throw it all away'
With no hesitation

(Smash)

Bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye...

Ellipse

First Train Home

Got to get on it
Got to get on it
Got to get on it

Bodies disengage
Our mouths are fleshing over
(Over, over, over, over)
As hiss and echo gain
Irises retreat into ovals of white

The urge to feel your face
In blood, rushing to paint my hand print
A Frisbee one by one, your vinyl on laminate
I'm desperate for some kind of contact

First train home, I've got to get on it
First train home, I've got to get on it
First train home, I've got to get on it
Got to catch, to catch, to catch, catch, catch

The first train home, I've got to get on it
First train home, I've got to get on it
First train home, I've got to get on it
First Train home

Temporal dead zone
Where clocks are barely breathing
(Breathing, breathing, breathing)
Yet no one cares to notice for all their yamming on
I calm up to hold it together

I want to play-do waveforms in the hideaway
I want to get on with getting on with things
I want to run in fields
Paint the kitchen and love someone
And I can't do any of that here, can I

First train home, I've got to get on it
First train home, I've got to get on it
First train home, I've got to get on it
First train home

So what, you've had one too many
So what, I'm not that much fun to be with
So what, you've got a silly hat on
So what, I didn't want to come here, anyway

What matters to you
It doesn't matter, matter to me
What matters to me
It doesn't matter, matter to you
What matters to you
It doesn't matter, matter to them
What matters to them
It doesn't change anything

Got to get on it
First train home
Got to get on it
First train home

First train home, I've got to get on it
(I've got to get on it)
To catch, to catch, catch, catch, catch
(First train home)
The first train home, I've got to get on it
First train home
(First train home)
Got, got, got, got
To get, get, get, get
Out, out, out, out
Now, now, now, now

Wait it out

Where do we go from here
How do we carry on
I can't get beyond the questions

Clambering for the scraps
In the shatter of us collapsed
That cuts me with every could-have-been

Pain on pain on play repeating
With the backup makeshift life in waiting

Everybody says
Time heals everything
But what of the wretched hallow
The endless in-between
Are we just going to wait it out

There's nothing to see here now
turning the sign around
We're closed to the Earth till further notice

A stumbling clich'd case,
Crumpled and puffy-faced
Dead in the stare of a thousand miles

All I want, only one, street-level miracle
I'll be an out and out, born-again from none more cynical

Everybody says
That time heals everything all in the end
What of the wretched hollow
The endless in-between
Are we just going to wait it out

And sit here cold
We will be long gone by then
In lacklustre
In dust we layer on old magazines
Fluorescent lighting sets the scene
For all we could and should be being
In the one life that we've got
In the one life that we've got

Everybody says
That time heals everything
And what of the wretched hollow
The endless in-between
Are we just going to wait it out

And sit here
Just going to wait it out
And sit here cold
Just going to sweat it out

Wait it out

Earth

Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work

Baby behave or make it work
Are you with me
Baby behave or make it work
Are you with me
Baby behave or make it work
Are you with me
Baby behave or make it work

You're not golden and I'm getting tired
Act like you owned the place when really you've only just arrived
I caught first glimmers in hides and skins
Look whose all grown up black swaning about the solar winds
You're gonna lose it all and find yourself on your knees
So get a grip and you might flow reverse the great slow bleed
I've tried patience but you always want a war
This house won't tolerate anymore

Stop this right away
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and make it up to me now

The cold shoulder, folded arms and looking up
You've never listened and carry on, careless, regardless
This is not a fire drill and if we hold any hope
It's harmony connection and stereo symbiosis

These lego land empires, choking out mine
Now you're everywhere, everywhere
Multiplying around me child
A strain on my heart
This rock can't tolerate anymore

Stop this right away
Do you love me
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Do you love me
Put your back in it and make it up to me now

Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work

Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work
Baby behave or make it work

Get only what you give back
Get only what you give back
Get only what you give back
Get only what you give back
Get only what you give back, back

Stop this right away
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and make it up to me now

Stop this right away
Put that down and clean this mess up
End of conversation
Put your back in it and make it up to me now

Are you with me
Are you with me
Are you with me

Think you're special
Not anymore
A strain on my heart
This rock can't tolerate anymore
Get only what you give back
Get only what you give back
Get only what you give back
You're not golden and i'm getting tired
Act like you owned the place when really you've only just arrived
Come along way, huh, from fire and skin

Little bird

Little bird, little bird, little bird
What do you hear
The clink of morning cheers
Orange juice, concentrate
Crossword puzzles start to grate
One across
Four letter word it's just not sitting

Little bird, little bird, little bird
What do you see
A picture perfect scene
Two tone lawns are manicured
The garden's wearing haute couture
It's hiding something
It's trying to hard

Little bird, little bird, little bird
Where are they now
Daytime TV. lounge
A carriage clock, a mantelpiece
A family wiped up j-cloth cleaned
Unsaid, festers
In the throws of the sofa

Little bird, little bird, little bird
How are you feeling
Like help in quarantine
Pearly white touch down smile
Absent creases round the eyes
Tell tale, hard sell
We smell rats in the kitchen
Tell tale, hard sell
We smell rats in the kitchen

Little bird, little bird, little bird
What can we do
Think tank, think rescue
Simon says, Etch-a-Sketch
Some encoded message only he would get
Quickly now
'Cause this is not how it ends

Little bird, little bird, little bird
Well I've got one more question
And I swear I'll let it rest

Little bird, little bird, little bird
Well I've got one more question
And I swear I'll let it rest
One more question...

Little bird, little bird, little bird
Where have you gone

Swoon

Your name in lights
Vibrating to your ringtone
My world begins to dance

We discuss important stuff
The rendez-vous is set up
To catch a film and dinner

Stuck in a cinema
Or saving me from a car you'll
Suddenly realize and fall into my arms
Working you undercover, softly, slowly gotcha
Any moment now you're gonna swoon into my arms

The same you, the same me
Spoon feeding the groundhog song
The friend too good to go there with
Let's shake it up and get it on

Hmm well I know you know you do
And maybe you've not said in so many words
You've always got your reasons
You're a right little know-it-all

Stuck in a cinema
Or saving me from a car you'll
Suddenly realize and fall into my arms
Working you undercover, softly, slowly gotcha
Any moment now you're gonna swoon into my arms

Let me be the great scott
Tip top, pit stop in your ocean
I could be the ship mate what got you down
And dirty with the lotion

And this is where I was going to sing
Your name over and over again
But I chickened out in the final minute
'Cause I thought you probably wouldn't like it

Swoon and fall into my arms, my arms

Let me be the great scott
Tip top, pit stop in your ocean
I could be the ship mate what got you down
And dirty with the lotion

Let me be the great scott
Tip top, pit stop in your ocean
I could be the ship mate what got you down
And dirty with the lotion

Tidal

Before electric light
You paddled through the soup of darkness as a crocodile
Cherry picking in the river
I would leave crisp note footprints at the Bankside

Watch it closely you see it begin to move
Watch it closely you see it begin to flicker

While we're here, let's see what happens
What we got, got, got to lose
What we got to lose
While we're tidal and flexed on a full moon
It'd be a sure sure shame to not to

In every wonder what you are
I've blurted everything I know just for a piece of it
Flash frozen, patchworked and fallow
I sprung up in hearts and arrow super highway

Watch it closely you see it begin to move
Watch it closely you see it begin to flicker

While we're here, let's see what happens
What we got, got, got to lose
What we got to lose
While we're tidal and flexed on a full moon
It'd be a sure sure shame to not to

Do what you feel, just how you like
Nobody has to know
Do what you feel, just how you like
Nobody has to know

Watch, watch, watch, watch, watch

What we got to lose
While we're here, let's see what happens
What we got, got, got to lose
While we're tidal and flexed on a full moon
It'd be a sure sure shame to not to

Do it for England
Do it for love
Do it for us
Do it for goodness sake
Do it for all the times we wished we had

Do what you want
Just how you like
Nobody has to know

Do what you want
Just how you like
Nobody has to know

Between sheets

You and me, between sheets
It just doesn't get better than this
The many windswept yellow stickies of my mind
Or the molten emotional front line
I couldn't care less, I'm transfixed in this absolute bliss

Sweet sleepless tumbling night
And the morning on your skin, a loved up light
Tracing patterns in the maze of your back
Softly softly the goose bumps, like that
And then a kiss
Maybe another
And another one

2-1

First the earth was flat
But it fattened up when we didn't fall off
Now we spin laps around the sun
All the gods lost, Two-One
And holes to heaven pointed out to us from light years away
We're surrounded by a billion galaxies

Things are not always
Things are not always how they seem
Will you be ready
Will you be ready

The interim of life
Has got you tiptoed and pinning all your hopes
On the top dog of dreams
You're not alone in this
The polyfilla way, look strong in the weakness of the gaps

Things are not always
Things are not always how they seem
They don't turn out always
Don't quite turn out always how we think
Will we ready
Will we be ready

I'm dying to know, what's in your head
I'm dying to know, how it all got in there
I'm dying to know, to help make some sense of it all
I'm dying to know, tell me, is it my fault

And I care about you, darling
And I care about you
'Cause I care about you
More than anyone else

Things are not always
Things are not always how they seem
They don't turn out always
Don't quite turn out always how we think
Will we be ready

Bad body double

She pops into the bathroom
Just after a shower and she
Plays with my makeup and creams
Keeps trying to look like me

Goes through the motions
Posing this way and that
Holding it in if it makes you feel better
Then knock yourself out

And say "hi there"
To my bad body double
My hmm hmm
This is my bad body double trouble
Oh no
My bad body double
My hmm hmm
I've got bad body double trouble
Oh

She's trouble
She's trouble
She's trouble alright
Yeah yeah

Sometimes I want us to lose her, shake her
At a bar in the gym for five minutes
It feels so good to be back by my old self again
Can get quite confusing

We look very similar except she's got some grays
And a little extra weight on the sides
And dimply thighs
I hear that stuff's a bitch to get rid of

No no not now
We're having quite an intimate personal moment
Not now
Could you maybe come at a slightly less awful time
Not now
And she can see I've got someone quite nice here with me
Can't we just be left alone
I guess that's a no then
Seeing as she's still here
Seeing as she's still here
Yeah

It's not me, no
It's my bad body double
My hmm hmm
I've got bad body double trouble
Oh no
My bad body double
My hmm hmm
I've got bad body double trouble

Bad body double
Ah hmm hmm
I've got bad body double trouble,
Oh dear
My bad body double
My hmm hmm
My bad bad body double trouble, oh

She's trouble
She's trouble
She's trouble alright
Yeah yeah yeah

She's trouble
Shes trouble
She's trouble alright
Yeah yeah right there

Can't shake her, can't shake her
Can't shake her, can't shake her
Everyhwere I go, everywhere I go go
Can't shake her, can't shake her
Can't shake her, can't shake her
Everywhere I go, everywhere I go go

Say "hi there"
Bad body double
To my bad bad bad bad body double
My bad body double trouble
She's trouble
Oh, I can't shake her
Bad body double
I hate her I hate her
I'm a hater, i'm a hater, i'm a hater
My bad body double trouble
She's everywhere I go

I'm gonna get rid of you
Bad body double
Once and for all
Gonna roll you out
My bad body double trouble
On my pilates rubber ball
Sweat and step up
Bad body double
The pace and the gradient
Starting tomorrow
My bad body double trouble
I am your nemesis...

Eat, sleep, breathe it you're full of the stuff
Go bag it, tie it up tight
Wheat-meat-dairy-free, teetotal, happy clappy
High on life, you should try it, try it, you know
Go on while no one's looking

A-ha! Gotcha now!
Caught red handed in the biscuit tin!
Cost you to keep me quiet!

Golden boy boots, pocket pedal stool
Picking sharp smart moves
Plastic, tin can, paper separator
Busy bee wave, wave save the planet flag
But sneaky in suburbia

A-ha! Candid Camera
Hook, line and sinker
For the four-wheel drive
Cost you to keep me quiet!
Keep me quiet!
(Keep me quiet!)

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

Nicest, sweetest
Upmost in everything
So charming, very charming
Well read, can play the fool, no one's ill at ease
And put their deepest swiss bank trust in you
No one saw it coming

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
You killed a man
Cost you to keep me quiet

La la la la, la la la la
La la la la, la la la la
La la la la, la la la la

Slow heart

'Cause I just can't find the strength
To pull you up and keep you taut
No, I just can't find the strength
To hold you up and keep you taught

Hijacked
Lost track
Light fades
Another day lapsed
Long shadows lure you in

The more you look
The less you see
So close your eyes
And start to breathe
Oh you said yourself
"This wasn't easy"
Oh you said yourself
"This wasn't easy"

Oh I just can't find the strength
To pull you up and keep you taught
No, I just can't find the strength
To hold you up and keep you taught
'Cause I just can't find the strength

Half life

I knew that I'd get like this again
That's why I try to keep at bay
Be a-hundred percent when I'm with you
And then the perfect heart's length away

The stickler is you've played not one beat wrong
You never promised me anything
Even set me down and warned me just how they fall
I knew the odds were I'd never win

Yet here I am
It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life

My self-worth measured in text-back tempo
It's been two days and eight minutes too slow
There may well be others but I still like to pretend
That I'm the one you really want to grow old with

Got a schedule to stick to, got a world to keep sweet
You're so much to everyone all the time
Will you ever slow down, will I ever come first
The universe contracts to sigh

It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life

It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life

Hold me
Darling
Hold me
Darling, please

You know you'll never be lonely
No, you'll always be loved
And maybe, you never need more than that
But for the surplus that loves
What's to become of us
Does it even register on your conscience

Long for one last showdown from a box in a crowd
Air compress tight to explode
I'm clenching my ticket to the only way out
As you disappear in a puff of smoke

It's a half life
With you as my quarterback
A daft life

Sparks

You Know Where To Find Me

You know where to find me
When you're on your way up
Or bustle and busy
Enough is enough

'Cause life's sweet assemblages
Are quick to driftwood away
Be still with me

You know where to find me
For no particular reason
For stop traffic behaviour
Or to get something off your chest

'Cause we go a long way back
Back to nothing at all
Be still with me
Oh, oh, oh, won't you be
Be still with me

You know where to find me
If you think it's all over
I can sense it a mile off
It's no friendly hello

You could be screaming drunk
Well I've got my bad days too
I'm gonna be here for you
Be still with me

In a public space, private thoughts
I reminder of a precious loss
I could be a source of constant reassurance
Let the breeze block sadness drop

Oh, oh, oh, won't you be
Be still with me

Be still
Heart, lung, soul
Arteries and all
A should at the ready
Vital organs on call

Be still
Heart, lung, soul
Arteries and all
A should at the ready
Vital organs on call

Don't mistake my charity
For what it is
A deep need to be needed
Necessary
Don't mistake my open arms
For what they are
They can turn on you
So show me the money
Show me the money

Blue and green
Fresh eyes on me
I'm young again
All things to men
With bite size life boats
I'll fix your smashed up head

Be still with me
If you want to be alone
If you'd rather die than tell
You know where I'll be
Where to find me
For hard talk
To call it off or bring it on
A proposal
If you're broken
I'll be here, I'll be here
For your secrets
For a breather
There's nothing you can do

Entanglement

Here we are
Blood pressure rising fast
Air electric
Conduct this orchestra

A micro utopia born
As the overture plays
This prelude to life long love
Our body entanglement takes
You all over me
Ah, me all over you

Fearless heart
I'm gonna take care of you
Whether spark or spiral
I'll pull the strength of suns

It's home where you hold me
So show me no mercy
On islands of cotton
Taboos get forgotten
Our body entanglement wants
You all over me
Me, me, me, me, me, me all over you
You, you, you, you, you all over me

Oh burst me into bloom I dare you to
Lose yourself in our embodiment
Ravish this palette of pinks and reds and
Dissolve into radiance

It's home where you hold me
So show me no mercy
On islands of cotton
Taboos get forgotten
And our body entanglement wants
You all over me
Me, me, me, me, me, me all over you
You, you, you, you, you all over'

The Listening Chair

9 months

Dot
Woosh!

0-7 years (the lullaby to make your own)

Cat, blue, piano
Are just some of the things I like
So the more that I see of them in my day
The better I sleep at night

Mum, Dad, Giles, Lizzie + Juliet, uncle James
Are just some of the people I love
So the more of all them I can get in my day
The better I'll sleep at night

I can moonwalk, build castles, play ping pong
Talk to animals, hold my breath for a really long time
And tell the future
Are just six of the things I can do
And the more I can fit of these things in my day
The better I sleep at night
The better I sleep at night

7-14 years

Composer, or maybe an astronaut
This is what I'm gonna be when I grow up
I know 'cause I sing out all through the day
And fly through space by night
The teasing, the fighting, the hospitals
I don't want to go anymore
I put a brave face on and battle through the day
But I might cry myself to sleep

I need more
(Pinch pinch punch punch, dancing round the car park after lunch)
Gadgets or
(Copycats, gold stars, cola cubes for good marks)
Pocket money!
(Shy type, show off your mum's got a Mazda so what?)
I need more
(Swap stickers, best friends, Knight Rider watch tell the time again)
Gadgets or
(The popular, blonde hair, all the pretty girls sit over there)
Pocket money!
(Sisters, in school, he's cool our brother knows karate)

14-21 years

What do I do to make you hate me so much
Is it the clothes I wear, the way I speak
Wonderbra thrown round the German classroom
You wouldn't understand
I'll never live it down
Hiding in the bushes
Or tiptoeing down the corridor
Stop it
You'll make me laugh
Why would I ever need to know this
Somehow I'll get through
I never want this to end
This night, this music
With you in my arms
Switch into the real world
No idea what I'm doing
But here it goes
There she goes

21-28 years

I've found a place
It feels like home
But I caught you kissing her
So suddenly I'm on my own
There's just not enough hours in the day
But things are going great I can't complain
When I stumble to bed
I sleep like a baby
Finding my feet
Make love, make money, make a difference
Finding my feet
Connect, connect
Finding my feet
Make love, make money, make a difference
How d'you do that again
Connect, connect together

28-35 years

I find myself gazing out of the window for no reason
When did I stop eating bread and cheese
I love cheese
I want to have children
But I don't want to have children, you know
Something niggling
A feeling I can't quite explain
(A question)
Online, offline
Like I'm not really here
(A choir)
Awake or sleeping
Somehow I can't tell the difference
(A question)
Bright light, outside
Dark deep down within

It's a cover up it was a cover up operation all along
Honing in, I'm honing in on the heart of it all
Toughen up I gotta toughen up 'cause I'm breaking it all apart

What's at the heart
What's at the heart of it all
Who am I now
Who am I now

Telemiscommunications

Hey babe, how's your day been
No, you first..
Oh.. what
The delay's quite bad
Yeah, sorry..
Where are you
I can't really hear you
A taxi distracted..
Anyway you.. you were saying
Wait, uh..
Now they're waving me over
Can I call you back
Yeah, everything is fine
Why? Am I?
I don't know why
I probably just need to sleep
It's been a busy week
Sorry, I've got to go
Sorry, ok.. bye

This is just so unlike us
Cut back to horizonalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact verses Telemiscommunications

Plan foiled
Sirens pass by
kids screaming
The longest public announcemnet
Reached check-in, finally got through
Running for a flight, shoes off
You're calling voicemail
In joke, group laughter
Closing scenes, in a meeting
Angel (angel)
Why didn't you tell me
One second, someone needs directions
Can't you see I'm on the phone

This is just so unlike us
Cut back to horizonalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact verses Telemiscommunications

So unlike us, unlike us
Cut back to horizonalisms
If we could win just one small touch
Contact verses Telemiscommunications

Did I tell you I loved you today
Did I tell you I loved you today
Did I tell you I loved you today
Did I tell you I loved you today

Did I tell you I loved you today
Did I tell you I loved you today
Did I tell you I loved you today
Did I tell you I loved you today

Lifeline

Freeze frame on me
Mmm, can you read it on my face
Data mining from old memories
Sunflowers and a smile catching
Mmm, welcome in a heartbeat to the family
Light Thai lantern, wish bound in the night

Who, what, when
All in one stir of a teaspoon
I'm shaken and gasping for air

Lifeline
Before and after
In an instant and great white gravity
Hold tight
'Cause all is against me
Every cell in my body, brace

Woah and keep breathing
And keep breathing

Gracious future
Mmm, won't you lend a hand to pull me through
'Cause me and you've got some things we need to see to
Let's get to work, let's get to work

Adventures in the multiverse
Effervescent candlelit closeness
Plus, I feel like I've just got the hang of this
Living thing

Who, what, when
All in one site of a teaspoon
I'm shaken and gasping for air, air, air, air
I will, on one day
And sometime, in some place
I've still got some go in me yet

Lifeline
Before and after
In an instant of great white gravity, gravity
Hold tight
'Cause all is against me
Every cell in my body, brace
In my body, brace

Rise high, cling to the laughters
For that moment of broken tragedy, tragedy
Bright-eyed, the world is against me
Every cell in my body brace

Woah and keep breathing
Check breathing,
I'm still breathing

My bones stay strong
My days still long
My heart has many heartbeats
And home is where love is

Lifeline
Before and after
In an instant of great white gravity
Hold tight
'Cause all is against me
(Well I still got my eye on tomorrow)
Every cell in my body, brace

Rise high, cling to the laughters
For that moment of broken tragedy
(The moment that makes me I'm in it deep)
Bright-eyed, the world is against me
Every cell in my body brace
(Every cell in my body, brace)

And keep breathing
Keep breathing
And keep breathing
Keep breathing
And keep breathing
Keep

Neglected Space

Hello
I watch you come and go
I know you can hear my voice
Don't walk away
Come daydream with me
In closed loops and future-proof
Cardboard to caviar
Let's show them how good we are
If you look after me
I'll look after you
Sonar, night vision
Or desperate lovers seeking privacy for they're forbidden
I am their defenseless host
Through my open wounds they let themselves in
Sheltered (sheltered)
They mock me (they mock me)
If you stand up for me
I'll stand up for you
I'm weather-beaten
In a losing battle punctured by nature
Becoming organic
The air in here ages me ungracefully
But if you take care of me
I'll take care of you

Oh, my crumbling heart
If you'll be good to me
I'll be good to you

I'm a nest
I could be the best decision you ever made
A beacon
Your peaceful corner
Find me
Cherish me
Take me on or pull me down
You choose
Wait

Oh, save me the ache of slow decay
'Cause I will remember you
Will you remember me

Bespoke to broken
This interwoven tapestry of tragedy
Crooked fames and cracked glazing
Silvers of wistful window gazes glint in borrowed light

Where doorways with no doors, stage a ballet of leaves
Who pirouette in the footsteps of once glorious days
But I'm peeling paint, I'm a sunken ceiling
I'm cracking up, and cam seem threatening

I'm falling apart
I'm scary at night
I'm taped up, forbidden
Keep out, keep out
No, no, no go zone

A has-been, a once was, the leftovers, an eyesore
Broken beer bottles, I'm bleeding, rusty nails
Oxidizing, a few remaining tiles,unloved
No human touch, I'm walked past, a waste of space
I'm a nuisance, a hazard, abandoned, unwanted
Unwanted

Lights off
I'm losing grip
This is not what I stand for
This is not what I stand for
This is not what I stand for
It was a perfectly good grand piano

Stop in the name of love
I got just what you're looking for
I got tree-lined interiors
Where we can dine with the biosphere

If you'll take care of me
I'll take care of you
If you be good to me
Then I'll be good to you

I'm a story in mourning
And you're the author
So pour out your masterpiece

Entropy increasing
How long before I'm dust
Can we discuss

Minds Without Fear

Naseeba

Nearly every inch of us on the line
Plucking on the string of everything that could have been
Search and rescue treasured fractals of our lives

Tham ja murh ja naseeba
Kahaan le aaye naseeba

If you move like lightning charging through the angry sky
And intercept on the arrow of time
Well we just might make this out with our heads held high
So this story continues with minds without fear

Baadal lehraaye maat ka ja
Ban jaa bijli badaal ko cheer tu
Roo ko kar de yun roshan
Bas mushqil tai naamumkin taoh nahi
Ban jaa bijli naseeba
Kahaan le aaye naseeba

If you move like lightning charging through the angry sky
And intercept on the arrow of time
Well we just might make this out with our heads held high
So this story continues with minds without fear

Jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi
Turn in to the brightness within us
Jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi
Become, reveal and expand
Jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi
Whizz past the visible universe
Jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re jhi jhi re
Come on

Kahaan le aaye naseeba
If you move like lightning charging through the angry sky
And intercept on the arrow of time
Kahaan le aaye naseeba
Well we just might make this out with our heads held high
So this story continues with
Minds without fear

Me The Machine

Me, the machine
Me, the machine

A blip in the algorithm
A break in the clouds
Soft circuits jumping
Soft circuits jumping

The pin code to happiness
Access denied
I'm switching to manual
Switching to manual

Woah, share a scent in a sweet summer breeze
A laugh or a squeeze
How can you teach me these things
Me, the machine
Can dream

An acquaintance with benefits
I'm a work in progress
Downloading romance
Downloading romance

Relationship asterisk
This footnote's in plain text
Marking your words
I'm marking your words

Stage one initialize 'small wins of time'
To wine and dine with neurons that know how to love

Me, the machine
Can dream

I can't do everything and I'll get over it
I can't do everything and I'll get over it
I don't wanna be everything
But I just want to feel a part of it

Woah, share a scent in a sweet summer breeze
A laugh or a squeeze
How can you teach me these things
Me, the machine
Me, the machine
Can dream

Me, the machine
Can dream
Me, the machine
Can dream

Run-Time

Sparks might fly in no time
It's a delayed reaction of the third kind
Oh, I'm so ready for this
Shrink-wrapped songs
I couldn't face the music
'Cause dark matter's bonded us way beyond
Our best by days

You know we've had it good
We've had it bad
So no hard feelings
We've done all we could
And all we can
I'm done pretending
Let's quit while we're still friend

Making up stories, they grew to be to tall
My fortress to forget couldn't take anymore
You nearly watched me ruin everything, everything
It's the number one rule of don't dos
Well, you knew it all too well
You were supposed to be looking out for me
Have you any idea how difficult it's been

You know we've had it good
We've had it bad
So no hard feelings
We've done all we could
And all we can
Let's save ourselves a sorry ending

You know we've had it good
We've had it bad
This is as far as we can stretch
Let's stop pretending (stop pretending)
And quit while we're still friends

Well I was so young, misguided maybe
But still there's hands over my every pen to paper
And this all started with a song (started with a song)
And whoa, let this be our last one

Drop

Good, good
Bad, bad
Good (good), good (good)
And bad (bad), bad (bad)

Oh we've had it good
We've had it bad
This is as far as we can stretch
Let's stop pretending
And quit while we're still friends

I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well...

Whoa, I wish you well, I wish you well
I won't tell if you won't tell
I won't hold it against you if you bow out gracefully (mmm gracefully)
Can we just not drag this out, please

I wish you well, I wish you well
I won't tell if you won't tell
I won't hold it against you if you bow out gracefully (good gracefully)
Can we just not drag this out

The Beast

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

I could sense it opening the front door as we came in
You were burning a hole in my back
Can we turn this around from where I lost you in the evening
Before things get out of hand

One by one eyes go arctic
We're becoming the beast
The sheer power in the heat of hate brings
Our army of two to its knees

Steel lungs are shouting the house down
Go in for the kill from a kiss
Battle stations on are navigation
Have we driven love to this

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

All fired up you're a hot mess, getting messier
I'd do anything for sleep
But I can think of far better ways to waste your energy
If you can bear to still touch me

One by one skin hardens
We're becoming the beast
The sheer power in the heat of hate brings
Our army of two to it's knees

Steel lungs are screaming the house down
Go in for the kill from a kiss
Battle stations on our navigation
Have we driven love to this

Have we left, have we left the building
Did we die a little death
Is this the end of the road for us
No more bridges for us to burn left
Do we finally find ourselves
At the point of no return

One by one
We're becoming the beast
The sheer power in the heat of hate brings
Our army to its knees

Steel lungs are shouting the house down
Go in for the kill from a kiss
Battle stations on our navigation
Have we driven love to this

Gently as we go, gently as we go
Steady as we go, steady as we go

Xizi She Knows

We come to your shores
Over misty millennia
From hustlers to emperors
For power and pleasure

We carve through the cars
Dance around the Daily News
Cue in the Grand Ballabile
Even your ten-ton tone rings home for Marco Polo

It's slow down
From a thread of sky
Slow down
To the warp and weft of your being
Slow down
You're beautiful, graceful, like no other
Pretty damned good as you are

Slow down
Friend of mine
Slow down
In a terrible hurry for change
Slow down
As you unravel your marvels from evergreen Gardens
Remember we loved you this way

To treasure it all, scroll out to see
In gold, fire, wood, clay and water
Your structure and flow, adagio to allegro
With lives to the tide
In full moon, plum blossom, we salute to you

Slow down
From a thread of sky
Slow down
To the warp and weft of your being
Slow down
Dynamic and playful, you opened my eyes yeah
You're pretty damned good as you are

Slow down
Friend of mine
Slow down
Could you go for progression not pace
As you unravel your marvels
Don't lose them all on the way

Mantoshan, Mantoshan, Mantoshan, Mantoshan
Mantoshan, Mantoshan, Mantoshan, Mantoshan

Slow down
From a thread of sky
Slow down
To the warp and weft of your being
Slow down
You're beautiful, graceful, like no other
Pretty damned good as you are

Slow down
Friend of mine
In a terrible hurry to change
As you unravel your marvels from
Evergreen Gardens
Remember we loved you this way

Whoa, to the warp and weft of your being
You're beautiful, graceful, like no other
P-p-pretty damned good as you are

Xizi she knows
That once it's gone, then it's gone
Xizi she knows
That once it's gone, then it's gone

Xizi she knows
That once it's gone, then it's gone

Corridor scene
Talk on, walk out
It took me a minute
My mind was on other things
Oh, but you got me at 'Paris'
I must be coming down with
Something to be thinking this

What's happening here
I'm growing roots through my toes
And leaves from my fingertips
Unfurl
Where does this story go

Queue, food, drink up, continue
We float in tandem
Past name tags and shaking hands
Immune to the hubbub of others
We're deep in discussion, the party's on mute

Oh our bubble's got it covered
You want me, well you've got me
It doesn't have to be today
I can't believe I said that out loud

What's happening here
I'm growing roots through my toes
And there are leaves from my fingertips
Unfurling
What does this story know

Wedding rings and children
Are all the good ones taken
Rickshaw, disco, goodnight kiss, oh
Cold shower
Calm me for sweet dreams of him
Where does this story go
What does this story know
What does this story hold for us

Non Albums Tracks

Airplane

Drifting though the atmosphere
And up into space
Leave behind the moon he's sitting
In his special place 

Some flutterbies they enter and they
Play around in my soul
And once again part of me
Fills up to be whole 

Da da day
Just flying in my airplane. 

Peaceful colours everywhere
Purples and deep blues
Feeling so at home here oh
As if up here I grew 

It's so beautiful up here now, 
Oh I think I might just stay
All alone and by myself
So free and far away

Da da day
I'm with my aeroplane

I can see heaven
Heaven down below
I look at heaven
And an angel who I know
I can see heaven
Heaven down below

Da da day
I'm with my aeroplane

Just happy to be me again. 

Aliens

It was late a night, a very star one
And the sky was so very blue
Something caught my eye
Shot across the sky, as a gleaming white contraption
Clearly very new

These funny looking creatures
Lulling in my backyard
Who were here from out of a hatch
They waved to me
Form down below
With their funny heads
Holding their hats

So come on stay, stay with me
Please don't go away
Come on and talk to me, please feel free
Do you speak english?
'Cause I want to talk to you
Where do you come from?

I bet it's wonderful where you live
You gotta space ship
I bet there's funny machines everywhere
I bet you got flying cars
But ours can only go fast
We can't do the thing that you can do
It's just not fair
I wonder, do you have a time machine
That takes you anywhere you wanna be, and everything you wanna see

People might think i'm mindless
Unless i've got some kind of proof
Of you being here with me

So come on stay, stay with me
Please don't go away
Come on and talk to me, please feel free
Do you speak english?
'Cause I want to talk to you
Where do you come from?

Did it take you long form where you came from
And they wouldn't like me, as you could see
Have a head like a cone
With the color like a stone
I was on my own
Will anyone one believe me

I'm gonna tell you something now
You gotta keep it to yourself
It's a secret only you and I know
Remember that night I told you of ?? In my garden
One of them flew up to say hello
He took my by his hand
Up on my lips
And he freed his words on to me
He said you are now one of a kind in our minds
All of our powers to me

So come on stay, stay with me
Please don't go away
Come on and talk to me, please feel free
Do you speak english?
'Cause I want to talk to you
Where do you come from?

Blanket

( With Urban Species )

Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

Emotionless the city lies
Cruel it is, it clouds my eyes
The dull the dark shades on my day
I live inside this place

Locked up inside my metal cage
Always tense and filled with rage
Above the concrete fields below
With you I wanna go, wanna go

Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket

I see only what I wanna see
I'll be only what I wanna be
My blanket covers me, yes

"Yeah, check it
Now as a yout man I was body poppin breakin on the lino
Traded in my lino for a pad and a biro
Used to stand in line just so as I could sign my giro
But now my ends meet in the best way that I know
(Hat, snare, kick) and the beats that go boom
See the music I consume to escape the doom and gloom
All the beats and melodies keep realities at bay
But what happens when the records done and starts to fade away"

Alone within myself again
I try to veil away my pain
The dirty grey surrounding me 'round
And now I hear no sound...

"I feel like Melle Mel from way back in the days
As I wonder how I keep from going under
I got trouble on my mind like my name is chuck d
And like marvin gaye it makes me wanna holler
When the music hits me I feel no pain
That's why I gotta put you on again and again
I take the needle off the technics and put it in my vein
All my troubles get crushed as the rush hits my brain
And away goes trouble down the drain"

I see only what I wanna see
I be only who I wanna be
My blanket covers me
Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket
I see only what I wanna see
I be only who I wanna be
My blanket covers me
Music is my sanctuary
Music is my blanket
You are my living world
You are my living world
You are you are you are my
My only living world....

*** Thanx a lot to Mikal & Downbeater & Ralf for this one ***

Can't Take It In

( From The film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe )

Can't close my eyes
They're wide awake
Every hair on my body
Has got a thing for this place
Oh, empty my heart
I've got to make room for this feeling
So much bigger than me

It couldn't be any more beautiful
I can't take it in

Weightless in love
Unravelling
For all that's to come
And all that's ever been
We're back to the board
With every shade under the sun
Let's make it a good one

It couldn't be any more beautiful
It couldn't be any more beautiful
I can't take it in

I can't take it in
I can't take it in

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

Coming Up For Air

( With LHB )

Deep underground
Somewhere beneath that green field
A very small sound
Faint but I think it's breathing

So afraid
To make that only move
Left hanging on a rope
One finger to go
And slipping

You won't find me there
I walk a different way now
Treading on old ground
Gets me nowhere with you
You won't find me there
I walk a different way
I'm coming up for air

Deep underground
Somewhere beneath that green field
A very small sound
Faint but I think it's breathing

Don't ask me why
She spiralled
So far down
Wake up when you wake up when
These days are too long
To rise without good reasons

You won't find me there
I walk a different way now
Treading on old ground
Gets me nowhere with you
You won't find me there
I walk a different way
I'm coming up for air

Those ivory wings
Flow down stream
Ivory wings
Flow
Those ivory wings
Flow down stream
Ivory wings
Flow

Deep underground
Somewhere beneath that green field
A very small sound
Faint but I think it's breathing

You won't find me there
I walk a different way now
Treading on old ground
Gets me nowhere with you
You won't find me there
I walk a different way
I'm coming up for air

You won't find me there
I walk a different way now
Treading on old ground
Gets me nowhere with you
You won't find me there
I walk a different way
I'm coming up for air

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

Congratulations

( Blue October with guest vocals by Imogen Heap )

Is that seat taken?
Congratulations
Would you like to take a walk with me?
My mind it kinda goes fast
I'll try to slow it down for you
I think I'd like to take a drive
I want to give you something I've been wanting to give to you for years:

My heart
(my heart, my pain won't cover up, you left me)
My heart
(my heart can't take this kinda love, you left me)

I came to see the light in my best friend
You seem as happy as you've ever been
My chance at being open was broken and now it misses him
My words they don't come out right but I'll try to say I'm happy for you
I think I'm gonna take that drive
I wanted to give you something I've been wanting to give to you for years:

My heart
(my heart, my pain won't cover up, you left me)
My heart
(my heart can't take this kinda love, you left me)

I can't change this
I can never take it back but now
I can't change your mind
(you left me)
And I can't take this
I can never take this back but now
I can't change your mind

Can't change your mind
(you left me)
Can't change your mind
(you left me, you left me, you left me, you left me)

Make it go away
Make it go away please

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

Embers of Love

( Mich Gerber Feat. Imogen Heap, Amor Fati LP )

I paint the two of us on a canvas in chains
I hung it on the wall so the story sustains
And I layer the colors with care in veils with the sky Broader than an ocean and higher than high

I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
These embers of love
I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
These embers of love

And I'll never take it down
I'll never take it down
I'll never take it down
I'll never take it down
I'll never take it down
I'll never take it down
Cemented in its socket
As long as I love
These embers of love

Well lucky you to have me by your side
Never would you know never could you decide
Taking my hands as your own, cover it in gold
Leave me for a moment and I watch you grow old

I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
These embers of love
I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
These embers of love

And I'll never take it down
I'll never take it down
As long as I love
It's the hate
Cemented in its socket as long as I love
As long as I love
I'll never take it down
I'll never take it down
As long as I love
These embers of love
I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
These embers of love
I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
These embers of love
I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
These embers of love

Never take it down
Never take it down
Yeah
Love
Love
These embers of love

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

Feeling strange

Can you tell me why am I feeling?
Can you tell me why am I feeling?

Tonight I am myself again
I am one as whole
I realise that I'm like this
When I look into my soul
I see a confused vessel there
Sitting even though I'm not
Under the influence of any
Substance for a shot
No substance for a shot
No substance for a shot
Yeah

Can you tell me why am I feeling
As I were floating in space again yeah
Can you tell me why am I seeing life in a blur
I don't feel, I don't feel normal friend will it even end?

All I have to do to get me into this state
Is to just be left alone
And even then it's far too late

My mind begins to wonder
Travel far and beyond
The barriers of human thought
Yeah they break here before too long
Yeah they break here before too long
Yeah they break here before too long

Can you tell me why am I feeling
As I were floating in space again
Yeah
Can you tell me why am I seeing life in a blur
I don't feel - I don't feel normal friend will it even end?
      
I start thinking overloading
My thought capacity
My vision take em somewhere
Now at great velocity
I can't get out of this I'm caught
Please interrupt
Imagination runs away from me
Is it normal to be corrupt
  
Can you tell me why am I feeling
As I were floating in space again yeah
Can you tell me why am I seeing life in a blur
I don't feel, I don't feel normal friend will it even end?

Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me why?

Foolish

My cloud
And everything here is mine
Nobody lives here but me
Unless I say they can
They go when I tell them 

Oh conversation begins at a time
When I wish to talk to it
Where I wish to go
Go takes me there on whatever I wish to travel on
Travel keeps me safe 

And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful 

And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful 

My life treats me well
Life is nice to me
Shooting down the obstacles one by one
Like a matchstick sonisphere
Disappearing in the air
Yeah which lets me breathe what I choose to breathe 

And mornings only come when I call them
When i'm rested
And rest it comes when I ask it
Then he guides me through the unknown
And the unknown becomes the known
When I say 

And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful 
And you're so beautiful 

And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful
'Cause you're all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine
Yeah you're all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine
Yeah you're all mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine
Yeah you're all mine 

I love it here
I am it here
I live it here
Yeah I am it here 

And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful 

And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful
And you're so beautiful 

Glittering clouds

( Plague songs LP )

I'm not always like this
It's something I become
A terrible weakness
In my nature, in my blood

Save me, oh save me
Save me from myself
Before I hurt somebody else again

Domino motion
Jump starts when we touch
The black out approaching
Here it comes now, wish me luck

It's all over, it's all over
It's all over in a flash
I can't remember
What have I done now

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Oh, my head hurts
Oh dear, oh dear

It's all over the papers
On the TV, waging tongues.
The artist's impression
Looks just like me, only better

Don't blame me, don't maim me
I can't help what I am

Oh lord knows I've tried to

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Glittering clouds
Glittering clouds

Go
More
Dance

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

Hallelujah

( Leonard Cohen / Myspace song )

I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
But love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah...

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do you
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving, too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah...

If only I were a butterfly

Sometimes I don't feel quite myself here
Sometimes I don't feel like it's my home
Would like to be a place where i'm free to play, a place I call my own

Sometimes I feel like i'm trapped in a spider's web
And each thread is in itself a problem
So I try to break free, untangled
But i'm back to where I started from

If only I where a butterfly
I'd fly so high
Right passed the sky
And let go my fears
Let go my my despairs
I will give them to the air, without a care

I walk alone in the dark
I wonder through the night
I lie to look up high
To see the starry skies
It gives me strength to know
There's peace somewhere up there
So quite so undisturbed
I'm mystified
In my bed I lie awake
And i'm dreaming of that land
So far away from me
It makes me want to cry
...
Pray for the day for I die

If only I where a butterfly
Id fly so high
Right passed the sky
And let go my fears
Let go my my despairs
I will give them to the air, without a care

I'm in love with you

( Live )

 I am in love with you
I am in love with you, baby
I am in love with you,
Yeah at least for the moment

Hit me with another one,
Yeah just like that
Hit me with another one,
And kiss me for longer

I am in love with you
I am in love with you, baby
I am in love with you,
Yeah at least for the moment

Baby don't you run away,
Come here and finish what you started

I am in love with you
I am in love with you, baby
I am in love with you,
Yeah at least for the moment

Split second and it's all in smoke yeah,
So when this fire dies

No don't get yourself in situations,
Baby that you can't handle

Come on into my bed with me,
I know you want to
Come on into my bed with me,
What are you waiting for

I am in love with you
I'm not in love with you, baby
I'm not in love with you, yeah
Not anymore 

Kidding

( Live )

A figure dressed in the finest attire
That money can buy
Laiden with assets to make an impression
On a stranger's eye 

And he lives in a palace
Surrounded by roses in a perfect picture
He's in deep with the shallow
He's fading cause he can't see the sky 

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that I could sing, yeah
Nobody, you're kidding nobody
Nobody but you 

A dinner with twenty people you hate
And they're hating you more
Talking politely, it's all a show
Tell me what is it for? 

And your laugh is tale-telling
They follow but you know you're not a funny man
The truth is the meaning
And your life is that you wouldn't have one
If you were poor 

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that I could sing, yeah
Nobody, you're kidding nobody
Nobody but you 

Yeah. . .
Such a shame, sir
Such a shame
Such a shame 

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything, yeah
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that I could sing, yeah
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Nobody but yourself X5
Nobody. . .

Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you everything
Who are you kidding mister?
I can give you anything
Who are you kidding mister?
I'm so happy that I could sing
Nobody, kidding nobody
Nobody but you
Nobody, kidding nobody
Nobody but you
Nobody, you're kidding nobody
Nobody but you

Leave me to love

Complications, more so I can say
Promises and deadlines make it hard to stay away.
All these strings are attaching to me,
And I can't find the scissors.
Yeah

All I tell them "I'm back" and I'm not.
  I can't remember where I was, I forgot.
Knitting it all, these holes that I need,
To crawl through a brick wall,
Is hard to say the least.

Where's that thought, that thought uncomplicated things?
Where's that peace of mind, that peace that made it easy?
Where's that simple day, that simply made it nice to be in.
Where did it go? Where did it go? Where did it go?
Yeah.

I got you a murky light, tell me what can you see?
A huge cloud of shit, hanging over me.
Can you blow it all somewhere else?
It's making it hell to distinguish myself.
Tired of the tyrants who only think they're all business.
Pissed with their patience, they constantly agree.
"Yes sir, yes sir, three hundred bags full."
It's easier to say yes than to say no to a fool.

Where's that thought, that thought uncomplicated things?
Where's that peace of mind, that peace that made it easy?
Where's that simple day, that simply made it nice to be in.
Where did it go? Where did it go? Where did it go?
Yeah.

Cover me in cyanide
Cover me in ink
Cover me in formaldehyde
And leave me here to think.
Cover me in carpet
Cover me in tile.
Cover me and evict me and put me in a file.

Strip me bare, don't let me breathe.
Strip me to my skin.
Strip me so you can watch me clean off,
All these things I've been.
Strip me naked of these walls
Strip me of all my rules
Strip me boy and see how small I am without you.

Inseminate the good now
Inseminate the pure
Inseminate all the shit that I've forgotten how to whore.
Inseminate the natural
Inseminate the dirt
Inseminate the ineffectual
And leave me here to love.

Leave me here to love

Where's that thought, that thought uncomplicated things?
Where's that peace of mind, that peace that made it easy?
Where's that simple day, that simply made it nice to be in.
Where did it go? Where did it go? Where did it go?
Yeah.

Leave me here to love

Lonely Little Petunia

( Six Feet Under Everything Ends OST )

I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch

Magic Me

(Escape, an animated short OST)

In the back of the beyond, from one eye of a storm to another
A cavernous unknown, for the seeds of survival we search
I muscle and man up 'cause every bone in my body's got nowhere left
And when the strength bleeds out, it’s the hopes and the dreams that hold on

Magic me, you kill me but I only get stronger
Magic me, am I everything that’s wrong in this world
Feel my secret weapon fire, from your trigger happy lies
Or give into love and save yourself
If you give into love

In crevasses of darkness, the hatred you harvest that feeds the fear
Angry, angry, whatever you might lose, whatever you've gotta prove, it has nothing to do with me
With all of your might and your slyness you vanish me and I’d disappear from view
But our enemies live within, so I sit pretty in the heart of you

Magic me, you kill me but I only get stronger
Magic me, am I everything that’s wrong in this world
Feel my secret weapon fire, from your every trigger happy lie
Or give into love and save yourself
If you give into love

Send me off to space but I’m not going away
Paint me out of the picture but I’m not going away
Frame me for the blame but I’m not going away
Cover up of the century

Magic me, you kill me but I only get stronger
Magic me, am I everything that’s wrong in this world
Feel my secret weapon fire, from your every trigger happy lie
Or give into love and save yourself
If you give into love and save yourself
So give into love

Meantime

The purity in dreaming
The meantime is a quarantine
Suppose there is no difference
And phone sex is eternal love

The promise in our yearning
The meantime is a quarantine
And the body parts can mix
And yet fail to make a whole

And you'll only find out if this was love
Once you've tried other lovers
And you'll only find out if this was love
So take my heart in the meantime

Will the next love be the real one
Will the next love be the real one

Our dreams in holding patters
And the meantime is a quarantine
And I'm the one comparing
By having you tonight

And you'll only find out if this was love
Once you've tried other lovers
And you'll only find out if this was love
So take my heart in the meantime

Will the next love be the real one
Will the next love be the real one

In sexual positions
We never got to try and I
I see lovers in the swing door
Entangled, in space

And you'll only find out if this was love
Once you've tried other lovers
And you'll only find out if this was love
So take my heart in the meantime

Will the next love be the real one
Will the next love be the real one
Will the next love be the real one
Will the next love be the real one
Will the next love be the real one
Will the next love be the real one

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

Missing you

I've been longing for as long as I can remember
Something like this to go my way
And it always feels so right
And then you take it all away

Tell me how will I fall in love like that again
And i'm still singing my way without you, singing in pouring rain
I'm still dreaming about those nights, it's our first together
See I thought I found the love i'll have forever

Now i'm high and in myself
Behind this shattered veil
And I know it's only me to blame
And I'm swimming through this ocean of grief
And i'm sailing up your pain

Tell me how will I fall in love like that again
I'm still singing my way without you, singing in pouring rain
I'm still dreaming about those nights, it's our first together
See I thought I found the love i'll have forever

Don't live there and in this house
Something to do
I cant escape
Even though I try
Photographs and memories
I never knew I had so many tears to cry

Tell me how will I fall in love like that again
And i'm still singing my way without you, singing in pouring rain
I'm still dreaming about those nights, it's our first together
See I thought I found the love i'll have forever

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

Mutual

If you were a bottle, would you break on me?
And if you were the truth, would you lie?
If you were a mouth, would you spit on me?
If you were a soul, would you get in my eye? 

I know the answers yes already
And i'd do all of the same for you
For you, for you, for you, for you, for you 

If I was your dog, I would shit on you
If I was your happy, i'd make you sad
If I was your everything, i'd make sure I meant nothing to you
If I was sane i'd make you go mad 

Well you knew this all already
And you'd do all of the same for me
For me, for me, for me, for me, for me 

Don't be a fool little helper
'Cause I won't be stopping to save you
Do get in my way
This sawing chain has got your name
This sawing chain it bears your name
This sawing chain has got your name on it
This kind of thing happens all the time 

It's just useless trying to make a fuss
It's the way it's gonna always be for you
For me, for you, for me, for everyone
Forever, forever, forever, forever, forever

Not now but soon

Not now but soon
The most beautiful light
Will wake us to pillow fighting excitement

Not now but soon
Bright into
Every corner
Satellites manoeuvre in beams of change

Standing by the best days of our lives
Magnificent, the best days of our lives
Big bang boom, the best days of our lives
They're coming right up
If we can just get through this one

Who said it was over
It's as good as it gets
Well we've got a few tricks up our sleeves yet

If we swallow "it's all over" and open wide on these make-to-believe
Sullen, chewed up, sodden soliloquies
Oh, we're sweet nothings anymore

Terrifying best, days of our lives
We're hanging on the best days of our lives
No two ways about it, best days of our lives
They're coming right up, if we can just get through this one

I'll hang on grab onto your feet
Someone else holds tied to my shoelaces
When their trouser leg tears, runs and stops at the seam to keep us dangled together
Until help finds us here

Best days of our lives
Better be the best days of our lives
Bring on the best days of our lives
Coming right up, coming right up
If we can just get through this one

Not you again

Oh, no, not you again

Please don't tell me
You're here to stay
See I don't want to hear
Go away, go away 

I like piano 
I like to tv
Yeah I like my style, ya know, and I like to dream
I like color of the rainbow, they like to please me
But I dont like you, I dont like you, I dont like you 

I've told you before and i'll tell you again, and again, and again
Can't you get it thru your head
You're not my friend
And i've tried to be nice but now i'm not going to lie
So I suggest you leave before I make you cry, bye 

I like to be sulky
I like being vile
I like to make you angry, I like it all the while
I like to know that you're hated, it makes me smile
But I dont like you, I dont like you, I dont like you 

Oh, no, not you again
Oh, no, not you again
Why, why, why, why me?
Why, why, why, why me? 

I like where i'm living
I like my view
I like anyone who detests you as I do
So I must find everyone including me too
'Cause I dont like you, I dont like you, I dont like you 

I'm sorry
Oh, no, not you again
Oh, no, not you again
I don't like, I don't like, I don't like, I don't like, I don't like you
I don't like, I don't like, I don't like you
Oh, no, not you again
I don't like, I don't like, I don't like, I don't like, I don't like you
I don't like, I don't like, I don't like you 

I dont have to give a reason
I dont have to give a reason, if I don't want to 

Hello? I said hello. 

Pocket sun

Hold your head down in a ducking pond
See how I breathe the bubbles
Pick a few stars out for a cloudy night 

I could tame damien
My love infectious bites you
I have a pocket sun boy
I'm everything that burns in you 

Yeah in my evergreen day, in my beautiful day
In my element day, I know I can feel the dawn
In my evergreen day, in my beautiful day
I know I can feel the dawn 

Peel the skin of love and lay it on me
My window wide and open
Free fall from the moon
My earth, my friend will catch me 

I'm a carbonator
I'm the fizz for all I want to be
I'll free the sword
I'm the killer for all that hurts in me 

In my evergreen day, in my beautiful day
In my element day, I know I can feel the dawn
In my evergreen day, in my beautiful day
I know I can feel the dawn 

Faint reminders of the rerun flicks of old days
Caught in iron till it melts and bleeds them life 

In my evergreen day, in my beautiful day
In my element day, I know I can feel the dawn
In my evergreen day, in my beautiful day
I know I can feel the dawn, feel the dawn
In my evergreen day X6
I know I can feel the dawn 

Propeller Seeds

Propeller seeds
Corrida scene
Talk on, walk out
It took me a minute my mind was on other
How you got me in Paris

I must be coming down with
Something to be thinking this

What's happening here
I'm growing roots through my toes
And leaves from my fingertips
Unfold
Where does this story go

Cue food
Drink up
Continue

We float and tend
And pass name tags
And shaking hands
Immune to the hubbub of others

We're deep in discussion
The parties on mute
Our bubble's got it covered
You want me, well you've got me
It doesn't have to be today
I can't believe I said that out loud

What's happening here
I'm growing roots through my toes
And leaves from my fingertips
I'm falling
What does this story know

Wedding rings and children
Are all the good ones taken

Rickshaw, disco
Goodnight, kiss,
cold shower
Call me for sweet dreams of him
Where does this story go
What does this story know
What does this story hold
For us

Rollin' And Tumblin'

( with Jeff Beck )

Well, I rolled and I tumbled,
Cried the whole night long
Well, I rolled and I tumbled,
Cried the whole night long
When I woke up this morning,
Didn't know right or wrong

Well if the river was a whiskey
And I was a diving duck
If the river was a whiskey
And I was a diving duck
Well I would dive to the bottom
I swear, I'd never come up.

Well I could have had religion,
In this bad old Sunday
I could have had religion,
In this bad old Sunday
But whisky and bad love,
Wouldn't let me have my way

I rolled and I tumbled
And I rolled and I tumbled
I rolled and I tumbled

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

Speeding Cars

Here's the day you hoped would never come
Don't feed me violins
Just run with me through rows of speeding cars
The paper cuts, the cheating lovers
The coffee's never strong enough
I know you think it's more than just bad luck

There, there, baby
It's just a textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up...
Now, now, darling
Oh don't lose your head
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you, yeah

Sleeping pills, no sleeping dogs lie
Never far enough away
Glistening in the cold sweat of guilt
I've watched you slowly winding down for years
You can't keep on like this
Now's a bad a time as any

There, there, baby
It's just a textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up...
Now, now, darling
Oh don't kill yourself
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you, yeah

Yeah, yeah, wow

It's ok by me
It's ok by me
It's ok by me
It was a long time ago

It's ok by me
It's ok by me
It's ok by me
It was a long time ago

There, there, baby
It's just a textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up...
Now, now, darling
Oh don't lose your head
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you, yeah

There, there, baby
It's just a textbook stuff
It's in the ABC of growing up...
Now, now, darling
Oh don't kill yourself
'Cause none of us were angels
And you know I love you, yeah

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

Spooky

( Dusty Springfield Cover / Just Like Heaven Ost )

In the cool of the evening
When everything is getting kind of groovy
You call me up and ask me
Would I like to go with you and see a movie?
First I say no, I've got some plans for tonight
And then I stop and say all right

Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little boy like you
You always keep me guessing
I never seem to know what you are thinking
And if a girl looks at you
Yeah for sure your little eye will be a-winking

Oh I get confused, I never know where I stand
And then you smile and hold my hand

Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little boy like you
Spooky, spooky, Spooky

If you decide some day to stop this little game that you are playing
I'm gonna tell you all the things my heart's just been dying to be saying
Just like a ghost you've been haunting my dreams
But now I know you're not what you seem

Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little boy like you
Spooky, spooky
Spooky little boy like you
Spooky li...
A spooky little boy, spooky little boy, spooky little boy
Spooky little boy

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

The song that never was

Greens of this
Where's a manual when you need one
The back of your hand's
No good to you now
At right angles, it's all shaped wrong when it should be rolling
You're piling every trick this box hasn't got

It's alright, didn't I tell you so
It's alright, it's all in the process
It's alright, you're all set to go
So don't give me that look 'cause I know you're up to it

My favourite thing
To walk out on the bridge and look back on Manhattan
Under sunset covers while the city lights up
You'll find yours whoever, whatever you need it'll be here
Guaranteed amongst these golden oat streets

It's alright, 'cause I'm telling you so
It's alright, it's all in the process
It's alright, you're all set to go
So don't give me that look 'cause I know you're up to it

Just one place
Just one place
To make amends
Just one friend
Just one friend
That's all it takes, darling

It's alright, didn't I tell you so
It's alright, it's all in the process
It's alright, and you're all set to go
So don't give me that look 'cause I know you're up to it

Thriller

( Michael Jackson Cover / The Saturday Sessions CD )

It's close to midnight
Something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight
You see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream
But terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze
As horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike
Thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear the door slam
And realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand
And wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes
And hope that this is just imagination, girl
But all the while
You hear the creature creeping up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes, girl
Thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

Night creatures calling
The dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
This is the end of your life

They're out to get you
There's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you
Unless you change that number on your dial
Now is the time
For you and I to cuddle close together
All through the night
I'll save you from the terror on the screen
I'll make you see

That this is thriller, oh thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a
Killer, thriller, thriller, here tonight

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, thriller, oh tonight

I'm gonna thrill you tonight
I'm gonna thrill you tonight
I'm gonna thrill you tonight
I'm gonna thrill you tonight

Valentine's Day Massacre

( Rustic Overtones )

It was more than the blues, you slaughtered Valentine's Day
Why don't you send your pretty flowers to my grave?
Cause it was more than the blues, because this is February
And high up on the roof I hear the rain
Tell me why is it necessary for these winter months
To make my bones sore
Tell me why is it necessary for me
I got to feel the pain from the year before

It was a massacare on Valentine's Day
Those blues wouldn't go away; those blues wouldn't go away
It was a massacare on Valentine's Day
Those blues wouldn't go away; those blues wouldn't go away

Why don't you ask her of the massacare?
I'm sure her face will tell it all.
Did you see my face on her picture wall when you were there?
And after there was laughter and her friends all threw a ball
While I cried all night in the bathroom stall
Now the chocolates melted wet
I saw Ms. Candy Heart with Mr. Cigarette
While the band played vulgar symphonettes
That's when I tried to steal your heart again
But you looked just like the Jezebel
Flush pink and red and you were drunk as hell.
Well, St. Valentine's ring the holy
It looks like cupid's arrow fell.

It was a massacare on Valentine's Day
Those blues wouldn't go away; those blues wouldn't go away
It was a massacare on Valentine's Day
Those blues wouldn't go away; those blues wouldn't go away

Something's take some time but I can't lag behind
There's only fourteen days this month and then a day
But when spring comes, I never want to go out in the sun
Then I get the shakes around Labor Day
Something's take some time you know
Something's take some time you know
Something's take some time you know

It was a massacare on Valentine's Day
Those blues wouldn't go away; those blues wouldn't go away
It was a massacare on Valentine's Day
Those blues wouldn't go away; those blues wouldn't go away

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