Swedish singer/songwriter Jäje Johanson, who goes by the stage name Jay-Jay Johanson, infuses the measured, slow-burn aesthetics of downbeat and trip-hop with the metallic pulse of electro-pop, resulting in his own signature brand of film noir-imbued electronic melancholy. Born and raised in the city of Trollhättan, Johanson released his debut album, Whiskey, in 1996, followed by Tattoo in 1998. His third outing, 2000's Poison, featured Cocteau Twins founder/guitarist Robin Guthrie, and debuted at the number four spot on the French pop charts. Released in 2002, Antenna was recorded with the help of German IDM group Funkstörung, and 2005's Rush boasted contributions from French producer/multi-instrumentalist Jean-Pierre Ensuque. The following year, Johanson appeared on (as well as co-wrote) the track "Marble House" for the Knife's Silent Shout LP, and began work on 2007's The Long Term Physical Effects Are Not Yet Known. Spellbound, his eighth studio album, arrived in 2012.

Whiskey

It hurts me so

It hurts me so
To see you in that state you're in
With a tear on your chin
Tell me please what have I done

It hurts me so
To see you sitting by yourself
With your head in your hands
Tell me did I do you wrong

I wanna know
If I can say I'm sorry
Stop crying
Baby please don't worry
When I listen to your story
I'll softly dry your tears

It hurts me so
To hear you crying in your sleep
Tell me what do you keep
Down inside I wanna know

So tell the girls that I am back in town

I've been on the road
I've been on vacation
I've been travelling light to reach my final destination

Now I'm coming home

So tell the girls that I am back in town
You'd better tell them to beware
Well they may go or they might try to hide
I follow on and I'll be there
So tell the girls that I am back in town
And if it's true I do not know
That every girl around had missed me since
I decided to go

I could be your friend
I could be your stranger
I could be the one your mother said would be a danger
Now it's up to you

The girl I love is gone

The girl I love is gone
And I will never find a new
But if one pass me by
I'll still be wondering why
I could not be the one for you

The girl I love is gone
And solitary fills my home
It grieves me so to see
You walking out on me
And leave me standing all alone

Well, it might be foolish of me
There will be other girls that I will meet
But still I'm neither young you see
But that's the guarantee

The girl I love is gone
And things will never be the same
The emptiness inside grows stronger every night
And where are you to ease my pain
The girl I love is gone

For good, for good, for good

Skeletal

I use to get
Flowers from girls in their bloom
And I use to get
Letters with a smell of perfume
I use to be handsome and popular
But what can I say
It didn't take long til I called it a day
But I'm older now, much older than I was when I was young

I'm older now

I use to be swinging the girls 'cross the floor
and I use to be a lover like no one before
And all the girls whispered and giggled and blushed when I passed
But I know it's true that good things never last
'Cause I'm older now, much older than I was, when I was young

Tell me like it is

I wanna know if you've been true to me
I've heard that you've been cheating with a friend
I wanna know if you've been true to me
I heard that you've been cheating with a friend

Oh darling tell me like it is
I wanna know
Tell me like it is
Or let me go
Who's in your dreams
Is it me or him
Please honey let me know
Please honey let me know

But I'm older now, much older than I was, when I was young

I fantasize of you

Every night I go to sleep
And begin to dream
The story of my dream has got the same old theme
It's you, baby, it's you

Turn off the light
Sit down on the couch
Pour me a whiskey too
Take off your dress
I'll help you with that
I fantasize of you

The scent of your skin
Gets to my head
As the smoke from your cigarette do
With Monk in the speakers
And love in your eyes
I fantasize of you

I know I'm only dreaming
Of spending my life with you
But somehow I'm still believing
It all one day will come true

The ice in my glass
Makes my lips so cold
As I kiss you from top to toe
You beg me to stop
But I know you want more
I fantasize of you

Mana Mana Mana Mana

Every night I go out
And I must look like a fool
When I'm standing looking at the sky

I don't care 'cause perhaps
I might see a falling star
May be, Oh one day a dream'll come true

Norma
Leo
Please fall down on me

Virgo
Hydra
Please fall down on me

Tattoo

Even in the darkest hour

Even in the darkest hour
When the world is fast asleep
I sit by candlelight with memories

When the wind was oh so cold
I used to hold you baby, hold
I'd like to hold you in my arms just like before

I thought I could live without you
That it wouldn't be so hard
But now when you going loco
I'm left with my losing card

How I wish the rain could fall like pearly dewdrops from the sky
Similar to the teardrops falling from my eyes

Quel Dommage

Quel Dommage
This was supposed to last forever
I used to say it's now or never
Quel Dommage

Quel Dommage
I never meant to cause you sorrow
If it's gone today there's no tomorrow
Quel Dommage

I could be wrong I could be right
Oh baby, don't turn on the lights
You look so gorgeous in the light of the moon
Stay until noon, my love

But in the dark you went away
All I can do now is to pray
It seems that all you ever left in my room
Was me alone again

Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Paris

Milan, oh! Madrid, Chicago, Paris
I searched and I searched again

I turned around to see if you were looking back
I saw your eyes and fell in love
I cought a glance of heaven but was thrown away
So now my quest is search the world for you

Milan, oh! Madrid, Chicago, Paris
I search all over the world for you
Havana, Berlin, Hawaii, Brasil
I search and I search again

My hope was running dry then finally one day
I saw a face I've seen before
You smiled at me but said
I really care, I do
But in love and married to another man

Lychee

I'm so tired of losing
How am I supposed
To know when you're not talking
And feel when you don't show
The chain around your neck will strangle you soon
All that you still conceal
The gum that you chew will suffocate you
Secrets you should reveal

I who tried to focus on every need
Turned into an actor
When showing how I feel
The chain around your neck will strangle you soon
All that you still conceal
The gum that you chew will suffocate you
Secrets you should reveal

Such a big mistake
And don't you dare deny
It's hidden and forgotten
You didn't even try
The chain around your neck will strangle you soon
All that you still conceal
The gum that you chew will suffocate you
Secrets you should reveal

She's mine but I'm not hers

There was a time when I was playing rough
But nowadays I take it sort of cool
Why do I feel this way
I don't wanna be alone
She's mine but I'm not hers

Everytime we meet it's wonderful
And though she only loves me as a friend
I always want to see her
But I hate to say goodbye
She's mine but I'm not hers

She's mine, she's mine
She's mine but I'm not hers

Now and then I meet her and her man
I must admit I used to like him too
But see them walk together
It just makes me wanna cry
She's mine but I'm not hers

They always keep their TV on at night
So no one in the house can hear them fight
But I've seen the bruices
And I know about the scars
She's mine but I'm not hers

She's mine, she's mine
She's mine but I'm not hers

Sunshine of your smile

The sun always shines
Since we got together
There's no cloud in sight
It confiscates the darkness
Sunshine, sunshine
It burns my skin
Reminds me of the blush
The first time we kissed

The sunshine of your smile
The sunshine of your smile

It makes me warm
The same kind of warmth
As your embrace
A ray of bright light
Reflecting like a mirrorball
Leaves sunstains on me

A letter to Lulu-Mae

I decided one day to write you a letter and tell you how much I care
And about how it feels when you walk beside me and the joy of being a pair
I remember the day we got together I remember it like today
I was struck by lightning that's why I'm writing a letter to Lulu-Mae

You were standing on the porch as I drove up the driveway as lovely as one can be
You would make any man so greatful of living and you choose a man like me
Though I work all day and sometimes all evening I never had no complaints
We've been friends though fighting that's why I'm writing a letter to Lulu-Mae

I decided one day to write you a letter from my tent here in my platoon
You send me a poem
Quite poorly written
And I love it yeah I do
I send my blessings
My hugs and my kisses
I hope I'll see you soon
From your mr Lonely

The one and only
A letter to Lulu-Mae

*** Thanx a lot to Richard who corrected some mistakes ***

Sudden Death

Try to see through false-coloured eyes
Promise to act like grown-ups do
Is it in my genes or jeans I do not know
Stuck in a never-ending daydream
A well-hidden secret all those years
It's understood I send my regards to you

Tears of joy to tears of despair
Scratches my back with razor-sharp nails
The queen is gone and there's no time to speak
Still in an ever-lasting nightmare
The song of a ghost is following me
A salted truth out of false belief

It's over, it's over, I will always remember you name
It's over, it's over, and without you it won't be the same

This sudden death is coming

I guess I'm just a fool

I guess I'm just a fool
Still dreaming of you
But the way the story ended
What else can I do ?

You said I was too good to you
Too good and too sweet
Back then you never turned
Bitter and discreet

Breaking up is always hard
But this one was harder than the rest
But in the end I hope I'll come out well

I guess I'm just a fool
What else can I do ?

Friday at Rex

She showed me how to dance on the floor
The moves I could use
Each Friday at the Rex we would meet
Sometimes without words

The doorman said if you had arrived
What colours you wore
I wish we could have stayed all night
And never, never stop

The DJ played the songs we choose
Your moves just hypnotized me
Oh how I wish he plays another song

She always move her feet to the groove
And all the heads turn
So call your friends and bring them along
And get down on the floor

I'm here, I'm there I'm everywhere
When I feel the beat
With you in the round on the floor
And love in your eyes

The DJ played the songs we choose
Your moves just hypnotized me
Oh how I wish he plays another song

I wish we could have danced all night
And never, never stop

The sly seducer

The sly seducer came to town
A time when everything was fine
He turned this idyll upside down
Laid sleezy hands upon what's mine
He's dangerous

The sly seducer, the sly seducer, the sly seducer stole my love
The sly seducer, the sly seducer, the sly seducer stole my love

He captures fragile guileless girls
Vampire-teeth in virgin-necks
And paralyses them with words
Touch upon touch 'til it wrecks
He's dangerous

As the serpents touch
The sly seducer stole my love

Poison

Believe in us

It started out quite badly
It only got worse
She said that it depended on
What's mine but I know
It depended on what's hers
It could have been perfect
I guess you thought it was
You didn't understand what
Was wrong 'til I told you
It wasn't worth the cost
I thought it would be easy
To break up with you
But now when we've reached
This certain point I'm no
Longer sure how to do
Of course you won't be sorry
You've always said you're bored
It's better if it ends right
Here and now or maybe it'll
End up in the morgue
Oh darling please
You believe in me
I believe in you
How come that you don't believe in us

Colder (I want you no more)

She said it's over
She said I want you no more
Over your shoulder
And out through that door
She's turning colder
And I'm growing unsure
Nobody told her
I've been through this before
Ever since the day
She said these words to me
I've had a hard time
Thinking logically
All I asked was
Why can't you please explain
For whatever reason
You left me in this pain
I just can't stand you anymore
She said to me
I really did appreciate
Her honesty
Even though it's not
My habit to intrude
I'm gonna find out
Who's sleeping next to you

Keep it a secret

You know I'm not a single man 
But anyway you think you can 
Come up to me and make a try 
By saying make this a night to remember 

What you said to me 
What you did to me 
What you wanted me to do 
What you said last night 
When you came up tight 
What was I supposed to do 

I don't know what made you believe 
My simple heart could be so weak 
That I could fall for your offence 
In saying make this a night to remember 

What you said to me 
What you did to me 
What you wanted me to do 
What you said last night 
When you came up tight 
What was I supposed to do 

Don't worry, don't worry 
You know my lips are sealed 

Alone again

How could a love like ours come to an end 
We had it all but lost it 'round the bend 
There's something that I'll never understand 
Why now it seems like hurting's close at hand 

But I'm alone again, alone again 
Though the years that pass divide us 
I am alone again, alone again 
Something'll never keep us apart 

There's one love left between us that will stay 
When memories can slowly fade away 
Though feelings changed ever since we met 
Our little daughter won't let us forget 

But I'm alone again, alone again 
Though the years that pass divide us 
I am alone again, alone again 
Something'll always keep us close 

I see her one weekend now and then 
I've realized I'm like a long lost friend 
She has your eyes, your funny little smile 
Her lovely laugh brings you back for a while 

But I'm alone again, alone again 
Though the years that pass divide us 
I am alone again, alone again 
Our little daughter keep us close

Escape

On a mountain up north
I will build a small house
Made of wood, stone and straw
I'll let nobody in
Neither family nor friends
Nor the postman can come
This escape can't keep going on
'Cause I can't take it no more
I'm not so strong
I will sit there and stare
When the ocean runs wild
Until I'll forget your name
Then I'll burn up the straw
Take it down stone by stone
And make a raft of the wood

Anywhere anytime

Park the car, make it quick
Wonderful, haggard girl
Pale inspite Scandinavian sun
Freckled arms, freckled face
Grasstained jeans, bruiced knees
Delicate with sneekers on
Undressed now, hidden in bush
Scotchtight skin round vertebrae
Clinging on to velvet leaves
Finished now, jump back in
Red hot seat burns through skirt
Just a kiss and we're on our way
Anywhere anytime
We'll be there
Long before the others will

Poison

She's a flower she's a rose
Wonderful when she's close
But you'll see, don't say I didn't warn you
Every rose has its thorn
She poisoned me like a virus
Her love is running through my veins
She is extremely contagious
All boys will get the same
Blood red lips, lovely smile
But behind something hides
You will feel, late at night
Razorteeth take a bite
Memories bother me
She comes back haunting me
If I could meet her once again
I'd do it all 'til the end

Humiliation

Underneath this surface exists
A man with no strength to resist
Lips are sealed unable to speak
If you don't take these chains off me
I hesitate too scared to believe
Disregard the way I feel
The time has come for you to decide
Naked respect without denial
How could I forgive and forget
When you ignore and you regret
Silent words, full of despise
There's no return, some things must die
Humiliation
I don't understand myself
Humiliation
I don't recognize myself anymore

Suffering

Autumn is here inside my heart
When there's springtime in the air
Loneliness is tearing me apart
Being lost makes me scared
I keep on asking the gods above to send my love back to me
Oh please let these days and weeks
Pass by so quickly
Nobody suffers like I do
Nobody else, oh no
Nobody suffers like I do
Nobody else but you
You had to leave, I know
And we knew it would be tough
You said you would be back soon
Soon is not soon enough
Through this waiting in vain
All this darkness and pain
I've been crying for you, now I'm dying
When this test is at the end
I hope you'll understand
That you're all that I've got
Oh darling

Changed

Poetry, painting and puzzles
Occupied all of my life
Until the day when I met you
This changed
Chemistry, cooking and cars
Gave no time over for love
But when I saw you I realized that
Things can change
Now when I'm safe and secure
In peace at a harmless place
Without surprises and action
I'm getting bored
Dramaclass, drinking and drugs
Was close to breaking me down
Now my priority's different
I changed

Far away

Far away, once so close
But now you're far away
You're still here with me
But not like yesterday, so far
Far away, I hear you breathe
But you're so far away
Once so colourful
But now all turns to grey, so far
It's oh so strange
When centimetres feels like miles
Seconds like hours
Now it's true love has died
No more roads left to try, far away
Far away, long ago
When love was here to stay
Now it's gone
It doesn't matter what we say, so far
Every word is like a knife
But the silence cuts you twice

Whispering words

It's Saturday evening
I sit by the phone
Planning to call you
'Cause I'm all alone
I hesitate even though I can't wait
To hear your whispering words
Is someone there with you
Or are you asleep
Have you gone out dancing
Or nightshift this week
I still hesitate even though I can't wait
To hear your whispering words
If you'd pick up the phone I would tell you
The most beautiful words I know
If you'd answer now I would say it to you
Over and over again
Now I have the courage to give it a try
I dial your number but it's occupied
It's getting late and I still have to wait
To hear your whispering words

Antenna

On the radio

You better watch your step
You must be on your guard
And take it slow
And promise me be careful of
What you do

I know you're strong
I know you'll make it on your own
Without my help
But please make sure you won't
Be by yourself

Everytime I hear my song
On the radio
I keep moving closer
And closer to you

Everytime the DJ is playing my song
I can feel you here by my side
All night long

You got to try much harder
Take it from the start
Then try again
You got to be much faster
If you can

You probably will fail
No matter how you try
It's not enough
It takes so much
To make it to the top

Everytime I hear my song
On the radio
I keep moving closer
And closer to you

Everytime the DJ is playing my song
I can feel you here by my side
All night long

Let's go down
The dancefloor if you dare
Now's the time
To show that you're not scared

'Cos everytime I hear my song
On the radio
I keep moving closer
And closer to you

Everytime the DJ is playing my song
I can feel you here by my side
All night long

Let's go down
The dancefloor
The DJ is playing my song

Let's go down
The dancefloor
The DJ is playing my song

I can feel you here by my side
All night long

Kate

It's nice of you to call me
When you know I'm out on tour
I will be gone for months now
And I've told you this before

Just a little patience
And i'll soon be back again
Oh Kate
I have to go now
Cause the crowd calls out my name
The Crowd calls out my name

Oh yes of course miss you
And it's great to hear your voice
But we're in the middle of soundcheck
I can't speak for all the noise

Just a little patience
And I'll soon be back again
Oh Kate I have to go now
Cause the crowd calls out my name
The Crowd calls out my name

Oh it's you again
No I just can't talk right now
The press conference has started
Of course I'd like to be with you
But How

Just a little patience
And i'll soon be back again
Oh Kate I have to go now
Cause the crowd calls out my name
The Crowd calls out my name

Cookie

Please come on over
I wanna be sincere
Can't keep it to myself anymore

Oh please forgive me
For what you'll have to hear
I'm gonna tell you something
You should know

Where would you go
If somebody hurts you
Would you come to me
Even if it was me

I leave you
And this time it's forever
I leave you
And this time it's forever

Please would you calm down
I don't wanna be cruel
How could I have prepared you
For the truth

And pelase remember
If it's a shock to you
Let's act as grown-ups
Are supposed to do

Where would you go
If somebody hurts you
Would you come to me
Even if it was me

I leave you
And this time it's forever
I leave you
And this time it's forever

I leave you
And this time it's forever
I leave you
And this time it's forever

Déjà vu

It seems I always end up
In the same old place
Like I've seen it all before
And though I try not to
I make the same mistakes
Who's playing a trick on me?
I don't now, I don't now

Déjà vu
I recognize the beat
Déjà vu
I've heard it on the street
Déjà vu, déjà vu, déjà vu
They put it on repeat

Déjà vu
I recognize the style
Déjà vu
It's back once in a while
Déjà vu, déjà vu, déjà vu
They put it on repeat

Suddenly turn around
To face a second time
Haven't done it all before
Just like a re-run on TV
Within my mind
Who's playing a trick on me?
I don't now, I don't now

Déjà vu
I recognize the beat
Déjà vu
I've heard it on the street
Déjà vu, déjà vu, déjà vu
They put it on repeat

Déjà vu
I recognize the style
Déjà vu
It's back once in a while
Déjà vu, déjà vu, déjà vu
They put it on repeat

Une reprise télévisée
A l'intérieur de mon esprit
A répétition
J'avais tout vécu précédemment

Je fais toujours les mêmes erreurs
Ca revient sans arrêt
Encore et pareilles

Déjà vu
I recognize the beat
Déjà vu
I've heard it on the street
Déjà vu, déjà vu, déjà vu
They put it on repeat

Déjà vu
I recognize the style
Déjà vu
It's back once in a while
Déjà vu, déjà vu, déjà vu
They put it on repeat

They put it on repeat

Open up

I open up
Stand here alone
Fully revealed totally naked
I show you all
There is to see
I cannot hide
Anything now

These are my knees
These are my hands
I may be skin, I may be bones
Nevertheless
I am the same
As I was then
I'm just a man

But don't give me your sympathy
You know it doesn't mean
That much to me
But don't give me your sympathy
I don't need it anymore

Living's like art
Like everything else
I got my skills I do it well
So it feels real
Or feels like hell
But if it kills I cannot tell

But don't give me your sympathy
You know it doesn't mean
That much to me
But don't give me your sympathy
I don't need it anymore

I open up
Stand here alone
Fully revealed totally naked
I show you all
There is to see
I cannot hide
Anything now

But don't give me your sympathy
You know it doesn't mean
That much to me
But don't give me your sympathy
I don't need it anymore

But don't give me your sympathy
You know it doesn't mean
That much to me
But don't give me your sympathy
I don't need it anymore

I want some fun

Can't make it on my own
Will anybody help
To get out of this black hole
I want some fun

I would like to enjoy
A moment for once
And instead of being annoyed
I want some fun

And I just can't remember
My last laugh in time
People used to say to me
That I had a beautiful smile

I want some fun, fun
I want some fun, now

I'm tired of being bored
I wanna make a change
I can't take it anymore
I want some fun

Not gonna waste my time
On all those so-called friends
Being amused is not a crime
I want some fun

And I just can't remember
My last laugh in time
People used to say to me
That I had a beautiful smile

I want some fun, fun
I want some fun, now

And I just can't remember
My last laugh in time
People used to say to me
That I had a beautiful smile

I want some fun, fun
I want some fun, now

I want some fun, fun
I want some fun, now

I want some fun, fun
I want some fun, now

Automatic lover

Love in space and time
There's no more feeling
Automatic lover
Cold and unappealing

Longing to be touched
Loging for a kiss
Whisper words of love
Tell me that you miss me

See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me,

Nothing to caress
Not a hand to hold
I don't need her touch
'Cause her body's cold
She's programmed to receive
Automatic satisfaction
After love is done
Where's the true reaction?

See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me

See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me

See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me, touch me
See me, feel me, hear me, love me...

Wonderful combat

You shot it away
The dangerous missile of yours
Launched as a flirt
And I am the target

You sure made a hit
I'm shocked by the blastwave it caused

This wonderful combat
My resistance has resigned
This wonderful combat
Will this battle make you mine?
Lovely strategy

You are a robot
You're orogrammed to wipe me out
Spread your mines
Take care of wherever I go

If I don't compute
Your impact will make me explode
It's emergency

This wonderful combat
My resistance has resigned
This wonderful combat
Will this battle make you mine?
Lovely strategy

It's emergency
This wonderful combat
My resistance has resigned
This wonderful combat
Will this battle make you mine?

This wonderful combat
My resistance has resigned
This wonderful combat
Will this battle make you mine?
Lovely strategy

1984

Saturday
I've come to hate you so
You hesitate to show me how
When I need your embrace

It's too late
It's already been too long
And now It seems so wrong
To sit all by myself and wait

Closer 1984
Valentine
Still I wanted more

Lonely tears
Falling on new year's eve
Might be the worst
But at least
It's only once a year

But saturday
The loneliest day of all
If somebody made a call to me
Maybe I would explain

Closer 1984
Valentine
Still I wanted more

Closer 1984
Paradise
Still I wanted more

(Closer 1984
Paradise
Still I wanted more)

Tomorrow

Tomorrow
I will try to be more positive
All the troubles
That's been hurting me
Hopefully be gone

Tomorrow
You consider coming back to me
It will honestly be nice to see
Hope it won't be long

And I just can't wait
For the turn of my fate
Come on, let's celebrate
Cause it's gonna be great
Oh I wish you were already here

Tomorrow
I will write a letter to my friends
I will tell them I've been missing them
Specially when I'm low

Tomorrow
I will make a phone call to my mum
And I promise I will be back home
Very soon to you

And I just can't wait
For the turn of my fate
Come on let's celebrate
Cause it's gonna be great
Oh I wish you were already here

Tomorrow
I will try to be more positive
All the troubles
That's been hurting
Will hopefully be gone

And I just can't wait
For the turn of my fate
Come on let's celebrate
Cause it's gonna be great
Oh I wish you were already here

Tomorrow
You consider coming back to me
It will honestly be nice to see
Hope it won't be long

What if the rope will break
And if the knife's too blunt
And what if the roof's not high enough
And where do i get a gun

What if the pool's too shallow
And if the pill's too few

And of the gas I puke

I might as well continue

Rush

*** Thanx a lot to Jay-Jay Himself who sent me these lyrics & Corqsan to reformat them ***

Rush

I don't wanna rush you now
If you need sometime to think
I can wait another year
But I can't promise anything

I guess you have a reason girl
Let me try to understand
Maybe I'm not good enough
But I will do the best I can

I don't wanna rush you now
I don't wanna rush you now

Everybody's telling me
I should take a good advice
But I better let you know
It doesn't come as a surprise

I'm tryin' to get through to you
A conversation on the phone
I know it might sound silly but
After all I wish i'd known

I'm tryin' to get through to you
I'm tryin' to get through to you

Oh honey I just wanna let you know
That I, that I never, never gonna let you go
Honey come a little closer now
Come on, don't stop
Well I guess you feel the same way too

I know you're still in love with me
I can see it in your eyes
You say you have forgotten me
But I'm sure it's only lies

I don't wanna rush you now
If you need sometime to think
I can wait another year
But i can't promise anything

I don't wanna rush you now
I don't wanna rush you now

The last of the boys to know

I don't know where she's going
I don't know where she's from
I need some information
Can I get it from someone?

I used to be convinced then
That nothing could go wrong

I was,
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know,
The truth, the truth,
Yeah...

I don't know much about her
I wanna make her mine
She's all i ever dreamed of
And there's no reason why
I shouldn't be suspicious
So let's give it a try

I was,
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know,
The truth, the truth, yeah

The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know,
The truth, the truth
Yeah

Is there anybody out there
Who can teach me how to learn?
You could just tell me when and where
'Cos I'm still waiting for my turn

I knew from the beginning
I'm just too blind to see
I didn't hear the warnings
Everybody gave to me
And now I hear them talking
But I guess it's jealousy

I was,
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know,
The truth, the truth, yeah

The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know
The last of the boys to know,
The truth, the truth,
Yeah

I guess it's jealousy

Teachers

All my teachers,
Much greater than preachers
All my teachers,
Much better than their features

I grew up in a rock block
Wearing leather gear and zipper clock
We kissed the girls and ran away
Oh what a shame

We were living on beat street
When I started moving my feet
To Flash and Zapp I joined the gang
The kids they sang

All my teachers,
Much greater than preachers
All my teachers,
Much better than their features

I remember when the pop died
Didn't like it on the country side
All the precious time I waste
We changed the taste

Moving on to a french house
In the suburb of a funky town
We worked and danced the night away
The dj played

All my teachers,
Much greater than preachers
All my teachers,
Much better than their features
All my teachers,
Much greater than preachers
All my teachers,
Much better than their features

This situation,
The state I'm in
This education,
Can never win

From technology to art school
I developped my pop soul
With all my electronic friends
That never ends

All my teachers,
Much greater than preachers
All my teachers,
Much better than their features
All my teachers,
Much greater than preachers
All my teachers,
Much better than their features
All my teachers,
Much greater than preachers
All my teachers,
Much better than their features

Mirror man

Call on me,
If you see the young girl with Cleopatra hair
Call on me,
If you happen to see her in town

Give me time,
I will try to escape 'cause you told me to meet her there
Give me time,
Just a moment and I'll be around

Mirror Man,
Has got no time to talk
Mirror Man,
Knows how to use his walk
Mirror Man,
She gotta understand
You're in danger

Mirror Man,
Has got no time to talk
Mirror Man,
Knows how to use his walk
Mirror Man,
She gotta understand
You're in danger

All I need,
Is a break, I got plenty of things to be done
All I need,
Is a companion who's playin' the game

Can you see,
My intentions are good if you're taking me to someone
Can you see,
And you gotta remember my name

Mirror Man,
She better work it out
Mirror Man,
Knows what it's all about
Mirror Man,
Nothing can stop me now
You're in danger

Mirror Man,
She better work it out
Mirror Man,
Knows what it's all about
Mirror Man,
Nothing can stop me now
You're in danger

Follow me,
And I promise you every step that I make
Follow me,
For a while I've been zoomin' you in

Come on up,
But it must have been something you said every chance I take
Come on up,
'Cause you're puttin' my heart in a spin

Mirror Man,
Be careful what you do
Mirror Man,
Before the lie comes true
Mirror Man,
She better stick around
You're in danger

Mirror Man,
Be careful what you do
Mirror Man,
Before the lie comes true
Mirror Man,
She better stick around
You're in danger

100.000 Years

Every move I make
And every rule i break
Never looking back without regret

I just can't go on
Pretending nothing's wrong
When too many words been said
Then something's gotta change

I wish this fever fade

The boys adore you
Girls can't ignore you
I'll be there for you
A 100.000 years

The cameras loves you
As much as I do
And dresses fits you
A 100.000 years

If we turn the page
I guess I'd rearrange
Just to get another day or two

And I'm not making plans
I hope you understand
There's a reason why I can't
But nothing looks the same

I wish this fever fade

The boys adore you
Girls can't ignore you
I'll be there for you
A 100.000 years

The cameras loves you
As much as I do
The dresses fits you
A 100.000 years

I wish this fever fade

The boys adore you
Girls can't ignore you
I'll be there for you
A 100.000 years

The cameras loves you
As much as I do
The dresses fits you
A 100.000 years

It might take a while
But there's no question why
If you look into my eyes you'll see
That every move I make
And every rule i break I take
Never looking back at what we've done

*** Thanx a lot to Bregt & Corqsan for this one ***

Another nite another love

Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?
Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?

Too shy to make the first step
Not confident enough
Afraid to break the friendship
We managed to build up

Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?
Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?

The first time will keep you calm
The second time will only make you wonder

Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?

I practice how to tell you
But speechless then and there
The time we say goodbye
I regret I didn't dare

Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?
Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?

The third time you'll be confused
The last time will make your world go under

Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?
Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?

The first time will keep you calm
The second time will only make you wonder
The third time you'll be confused
The last time will make your world go under

Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?
Another nite, another love
Do you remember your emotions?

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

Rock it

It's eleven, finally
She's been working like a maniac since three
Takes bus seven, going west
She pass the drycleaning, picks up her favourite dress

Oh-woo-ho
She's gonna rock it tonight
Get ready
Nothing can stop it tonight

Mocha brunette, slim and tall
But during daytime noone sees her at all
On friday nights, you can be sure
The moment everybody's looking at her

Oh-woo-ho
She's gonna rock it tonight
Get ready
Nothing can stop it tonight

They look at her like if she's crazy
But the way she moves it just amaze me

She knows excactly where to run
Can take it further every time she's having fun
Like a tornado, hurricane
She's such a good time
Can i see her again?

Oh-woo-ho
She's gonna rock it tonight
Get ready
Nothing can stop it tonight

I.O.U. my love

If you just stop and listen
Then you might hear the words
That i've been trying to tell you
I guess you never heard

There's something about you baby
I don't know what it is
Can't put my finger on it
I.o.u. my love

I'm driving to the city
Let's meet in the arcade
I show you what i'm made of
Pretend you never paid

There's something about you baby
I don't know what it is
Can't put my finger on it
I.o.u. my love

It's getting past eleven
When are you gonna come
Feels like i've waited forever
A double bed for one

There's something about you baby
I don't know what it is
Can't put my finger on it
I.o.u. my love

The Long Term Physical Effects Are Not Yet Known

*** Thanx a lot to Jay-Jay Himself who sent me most of these lyrics ***

She Doesn't Live Here Anymore

I hear your voice
I touch your hair
I see the traces
Everywhere
This house of ours
We used to share
My dream has turned
To nightmare

I sleep no more
I dream no more
There's nothing here
To wake up for
I talk no more
I sing no more
Don't function like
I did before

Because she doesn't live here anymore
She hardly calls at all
Now when she's gone I find myself lost
Staring at the wall

I drink again
I smoke again
There's no one here
To call my friend
I swear again
I'm mad again
So troubled since
I don't know when

Because she doesn't live here anymore
She hardly calls at all
Now when she's gone I find myself lost
Staring at the wall

She doesn't live here anymore
She hardly calls at all
Since she's been gone there's nobody here
To catch me when I fall

Time will show me

First of all
I'd like to tell you about a dream I had
Long before
I ever had the chance to meet you, girl
Corridores
I never walked along that leads nowhere
After all
It's all about the art of memory

Time's gonna show me
What you're hiding for me
Songs for no bitter regrets

Dialogues
I never understood your strategy
Horoscopes
I know you're gonna keep it for yourself
The end of us
There's so much depending of the danger, no
Turns to dust
Won't make it easy on you anymore

Time's gonna show me
What you're hiding for me
Songs for no bitter regrets

Time's gonna show me
What you're hiding for me
Songs for no bitter regrets...

Coffin

Do you remember
A long time ago
I made a raft out of wood
Though the raft was washed upon a shore
On an island without no name

Everywhere I go
Everywhere I hide
Makes me feel no better

Anything I do
And anything I try
Makes me feel much worse

I started to dig a hole in the sand
Longer and deeper than wide
And from what was left I created a box
That I gently placed in the grave

Everywhere I go
Everywhere I hide
Makes me feel no better

Anything I do
And anything I try
Makes me feel much worse

I took a deep breath and sat down on the beach
And started to count all the waves
'Cause all I could do now was wait for the tide
To wash the traces away

Everywhere I go
Everywhere I hide
Makes me feel no better

Anything I do
And anything I try
Makes me feel much worse

Everywhere I go
Everywhere I hide
Makes me feel no better

Anything I do
And anything I try
Makes me feel much worse

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

Rocks In Pockets

Pack your bags
Keep it quiet
So your dad doesn't wake up
He'll be mad
When he'll notice that you're gone

Cross the field
Through the trees
Behind the curtain we take off
Cut the leach
Come with me
We're on the run

We don't need nobody's help
We can make it on our own
We just want you all to leave us alone

We don't need nobody's help
We can make it on our own
We just want you all to leave us alone

We got rocks in our pockets
But nothing's gonna slow us down

Leave a note with goodbye
They're not gonna understand
They believe that they're doing the best they can

Down the stairs
Out the door
Here we are the motor's running
So come on
We're gonna need a big advance

We don't need nobody's help
We can make it on our own
We just want you all to leave us alone

We don't need nobody's help
We can make it on our own
We just want you all to leave us alone

We got rocks in our pockets
But nothing's gonna slow us down

Checking in
Checking out
There's a blanket in the car
I know it's cold
But I will try to keep you warm

Strike a match
Hide the box
To the smell of gasoline
Take a breath
We're gonna leave it all behind

We don't need nobody's help
We can make it on our own
We just want you all to leave us alone

We don't need nobody's help
We can make it on our own
We just want you all to leave us alone

We got rocks in our pockets
But nothing's gonna slow us down

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

As good as it gets

Such a funny little song
That I heard you hum at night
Like a strange lullaby
That made me fall asleep

I tried to write it down
Just as soon as I'm awake
But it didn't came out right
Better stick to counting sheep

Is this, is this as good as it gets
That's just what I ask myself
Is, this, is this as good as it gets
Who can answer that

I recall a childhood dream
I was standing on a roof
But I didn't dare to jump
'Cause perhaps I couldn't fly

But you pushed me and I fell
And I folded out my wings
And I never touched the ground
It was not time to say goodbye

Is this, is this, is this, is this, is this
Is this as good as it gets
That's just what I ask myself
Is this, is this as good as it gets
Who can answer that

Is this, is this as good as it gets
That's just what I ask myself
Is this, is this as good as it gets
Who can answer that

Is this, is this as good as it gets
That's just what I ask myself
Is this, is this as good as it gets
Who can answer that

Only For You

It's only for you that I do this
Every night, every day
And what would you like me to show you
What would you like me to say

Despite these silent mysteries and certain violent cuts
There is a chance for future histories 'bout us
Despite these silent mysteries and certain violent cuts
There is a chance for future histories 'bout us

I know that you're watching me closely
I know you see right through me
So tell me what makes you excited
Is this the way you want it to be

Despite these silent mysteries and certain violent cuts
There is a chance for future histories 'bout us
Despite these silent mysteries and certain violent cuts
There is a chance for future histories 'bout us

You know I can't promise to make it
Something was left unsaid
The next thing you know I'll be different
I guess it's all in your head

Despite these silent mysteries and certain violent cuts
There is a chance for future histories 'bout us
Despite these silent mysteries and certain violent cuts
There is a chance for future histories 'bout us

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

Jay-Jay Johanson Again

From this moment on
I'll be craving for some information
What did I do wrong
I can't handle with this situation
All the time

So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs
So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs

You can count on me
It's been growing to a real obsession
In this ideal spleen
I've developped my own gangster methods
It's all my life

So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs
So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs

Time in time again
I'm rehearsing for my final mission
Armed with ink and pen
It's all depending on the superstition

From this moment on
I'll be craving for some information
What did I do wrong
I can't handle with this situation
All the time

So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs
So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs

So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs
So hard to be
The one to satisfy your needs

Nothing has changed
I'm still the same
Jay-Jay Johanson

Look in my eyes
You'll recognize
Jay-Jay Johanson

Nothing has changed
I'm still the same
Jay-Jay Johanson

Look in my eyes
You'll recognize
Jay-Jay Johanson

Breaking glass

I've been trying to heal your wounds
Hope it's gonna be better soon
What more can I do
Oh, I wish I knew

There's a chance that I wanna take
And a fragile heart to unbreak
But I don't know how
Can you help me now

To the sound of breaking glass
We will reach our goal at last
This is now
Let's forget the past

To the sound of breaking glass
Everything we'll do will last
This is now
Let's forget the past

Yes I know, I was there today
Maybe I will go there again
Nothing happened once
Things I should have done

Someone's standing there in the hall
But then suddenly not at all
Stood so close to me
But I couldn't see

To the sound of breaking glass
We will reach our goal at last
This is now
Let's forget the past

To the sound of breaking glass
Everything we'll do will last
This is now
Let's forget the past

New Year's Eve

Tonight it's New Year's eve
Another year passed by
Will you be there by my side

I can feel tears begin
Running down on my chin
Twelve months of holding in it

New Year's Eve
Why you decide to choose me
Delib'rately abuse me
You let her say goodbye

I keep on wandering
When did you stop to sing
I hope you'll find it one day

New Year's Eve
You've come just too confuse me
And now in my rear view I see
Now look what you have done

New Year's Eve
You never did seduce me
There's not enough excuses
What did I do so wrong

I know we've both been trying
There's been a lot of crying
But also moments of laughs

Tell me when the party's over

We move closer and closer
Without a sound
Playing games with emotions
That work is done
Though time runs faster and faster
We linger on

Tell me when the party's over
Call me when the music stops
When your champagne glass is empty
I will come and pick you up

Tell me when the party's over
Call me when the lights are out
When everybody's left the building
I'll be 'round

Trying harder and harder
When things goes wrong
Constantly in confusion
Burning so strong

Changing plans with each other
When days are long

Tell me when the party's over
Call me when the music stops
When your champagne glass is empty
I will come and pick you up

Tell me when the party's over
Call me when the lights are out
When everybody's left the building
I'll be 'round

Not even teardrops can tear us apart
No, not even teardrops can tear us apart

Tell me when the party's over
Call me when the music stops
When your champagne glass is empty
I will come and pick you up

Tell me when the party's over
Call me when the lights are out
When everybody's left the building
I'll be 'round

Prequiem

Cut your hair
Change your name
Every end is a new beginning
It's over now
But it will never be the same

Peculiar

There she walks
Acts like she doesn't see me
She goes by the name
Peculiar

No one
Cannot understand her methods
For me she's the same
Peculiar

Peculiar
You seem to know my secrets
Peculiar
You don't even know my name

I take your hand
And I keep on wandering
You give me support
Peculiar

Bring books
Let's spend the night together
It's snowing again
Peculiar

Peculiar
You seem to know my secrets
Peculiar
You don't even know my name

Peculiar
You seem to know my secrets
Peculiar
You don't even know my name

Self-Portrait

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

Wonder Wonders

When the morning comes
And the night is done
I will be far gone without that race

She will find the note
I left her on the desk
I've left this girl so many times before

In this world that we know
There's nothing that could make
A decent woman of a girl like you

In this world that we know
There's nothing that could make
A decent woman of a girl like you

I wish she'd give a call
To say hello that's all
I wonder if she wonders where I am

She's got her new friends now
I pray to god she's fine
I've tried to tell her time and time again

In this world that we know
There's nothing that could make
A decent woman of a girl like you

In this world that we know
There's nothing that could make
A decent woman of a girl like you

Already kissed goodbye
Promise please don't cry
Bring me Bourbon and a hancer chief

In this world that we know
There's nothing that could make
A decent woman of a girl like you

In this world that we know
There's nothing that could make
A decent woman of a girl like you

Lightning strikes

I close the curtains
Won't let the day light in
Put out the candles
Pour another gin

And when the lightning strikes
The thunder's never far away
And you're the lightning like
I’m thunder on a foggy day
Or so it seems, or so it seems

Darkness approaching
Guess there's a storm breaking in
Rain drops increasing
Stronger gets the wind

Autumn brought shadows
My days of mourning are through
Gone is the sorrow
The way my life has grown

When the lightning strikes
The thunder's never far away
And you're the lightning like
I'm thunder on a foggy day
Or so it seems, or so it seems

Chords on my piano
Fading away in the room
The ticking of a clock or
Is it a metronome

And when the lightning strikes
The thunder's never far away
And you're the lightning like
I'm thunder on a foggy day
Or so it seems, or so it seems

Autumn Winter Spring

Oh please, can anybody help me
This ain't the way it's supposed to be
Oh no

A cold breeze is blowing
Makes my soul freeze
The door is locked and there's no key
Oh no, oh no

We're passing through autumn, winter and spring
Emotions have changed when summer begins
We're passing through autumn, winter and spring
Still fighting against the phantoms within

Branches, each autumn see them loose leaves
We're closer than we pretended to be
Oh no

Lately
You cry out in your sleep
The bed room's cold in times like these
Oh no, oh no

We're passing through autumn, winter and spring
Emotions have changed when summer begins
We're passing through autumn, winter and spring
Still fighting against the phantoms within

Oh please, can anybody help me
This ain't the way it's supposed to be
Oh no

We're passing through autumn, winter and spring
Emotions have changed when summer begins

Liar

You tell me that you're lying
But I know it's not true
You say you didn’t do it
But I'm sure it was you
If I tell you that I love you
Would that make me a liar too

You tell me that you're lying
But I know it's not true
You say you didn’t do it
But I'm sure it was you
If I tell you that I love you
Would that make me a liar too

Trauma

We're going through a tough period now
Facing problems new to us
Growing stronger dealing with the past
Nothing to be frightened of

On the border line of silence
Trauma setting in
And the loneliness is killing me
So you got to accept my apology

Every struggle will unveil ourself
No one's gonna mourn alone
And we managed through a troubled sleep
On the road to the unknown

On the border line of silence
Trauma setting in
And the loneliness is killing me
So you got to accept my apology
'Cause the loneliness is killing me
It'll all become a catastrophe

On the border line of silence
Trauma setting in
And the loneliness is killing me
So you got to accept my apology

Difficult enough to tell the truth
I seek shelter on your side
Never knowing if misunderstood
Desperation is our guide

My mother's grave

Sorry for the times I had to leave you alone
In all the situations when I couldn't come home
Sorry for the things I said, I was not my self
It's getting late and I just wish I was somewhere else

I should have brought apologies and flowers
Instead I left and I was gone for hours

I understand if you were disappointed last night
So many times I tried but couldn't set things right
Some times it's not enough with poor excuses
But I just don't know the correct words to use

And I promise and I swear on my mother's grave
It never gonna happen again

I practice every night that now my vision's too blur
And nothing comes out right, it’s just them I hear that occur
Sorry for the times I had to leave you alone
In all the situations when I couldn't come home

I should have brought apologies and flowers
Instead I left and I was gone for hours
And I promise and swear on my mother's grave
It never gonna happen again
And I promise and swear on my mother's grave
It never gonna happen again

Broken nose

Her nose is bleeding
And just one arm away
He promises it won't happen again

And she believes him
Makes her feel guilty
For talking to another man

Her throat is aching
Black finger prints around her neck
Are hidden by a scarf

She can not hate him
Part of her knows she has
To leave before it goes too far

Broken nose, broken heart
The healing process doesn't know where to start
Broken nose, broken heart
Until death do us apart

It's when he's drinking
Just can't control himself
Gets violent every single time

Guess what she's thinking
It could be worse
And when he's sober he's so very fine

Broken nose, broken heart
The healing process doesn't know where to start
Broken nose, broken heart
Until death do us apart

The neighbours know it
If she won't do it they all
Threaten her to call the cops

Finally in peace
This guy won't touch me now
Under this stone it has stopped

Broken nose, broken heart
The healing process doesn't know where to start
Broken nose, broken heart
Until death do us apart

Broken heart
The healing process doesn't know where to start
Broken nose, broken heart
Until death do us apart

Medicine

It's empty on the streets by now
The shops have all closed down
And people packed and moved away
Far from this scary town

It's quiet from the bars and clubs
The bands don't play no more
Pain always follows joy
The days go by and I endure

And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude
And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude

No lights in any windows
There's no smoke from chimney pots
And when the green light turns to red
There's not a car that stops

I still can here the schoolyard bell
But there's no kids insight
The sound of silence is what's left
When ghosts come out at night

And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude
And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude


*** Sample ***

And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude
And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude

And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude
And there's no medicine to cure
This silent solitude

Make her mine

Silence gets closer
Sarcastic routine
Problems are growing somber
Stories are written entirely itself
Lend me near, bring misery my friend

Make her mine, make her mine
Standing in the line, make her mine
Make her mine, make her mine
Standing in the line, make her mine

In the beginning
There's nothing to fear
How could I explain it better

Should have been wiser
It's been far too long
There's too many ways
To say what I'm gonna say

Make her mine, make her mine
Standing in the line, make her mine
Make her mine, make her mine
Standing in the line, make her mine

A nature like your scan
Turn trouble to good
I'm changing my weapon
To arrow and bow again

Make her mine, make her mine
Standing in the line, make her mine
Make her mine, make her mine
Standing in the line, make her mine

Sore

There must be some sort of misunderstanding
It was never my intention to do you wrong
Rumours made you leave
Out of reach for me
So much further away now you're almost gone

Here we are now
Making each other cry
Where could this lead us but down

In the morning light
Nothing seems so right
I don't know what they have told you
But trust in me
Are your feeling sore
Reaching out for more
May be what we had be come was not meant to be

Here we are now
Making each other cry
Where could this lead us but down

It's up to you to decide
It's up to you to decide

Spellbound

Driftwood

I heard you knocking on my door
One day the driftwood finds a shore
I should have opened right away
But couldn't find a word to say

What ever keeps you wake at night
Will also get you through the day
Give me some time to think things through
It's such a long long time ago
I guess I learn from my mistakes
Why did you leave me standing here

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

Dilemna

I don't wanna be your boyfriend
I don't wanna be your husband
And the reason, I'll tell you
I'm already with someone

I don't wanna be your best friend
I don't wanna be your one night stand
And the reason, I'll tell you
I'm already with someone

And it's not that I don't really fancy you
And it's not that you're not my type of girl

But I don't wanna be your next prey
I don't wanna be a shoulder to cry on
And the reason, I'll tell you
I'm already with someone


I don't wanna be your boyfriend
I don't wanna be your husband
And the reason, I'll tell you
I'm already with someone

I don't wanna be your best friend
I don't wanna be your one night stand
And the reason, I'll tell you
I'm already with someone


And it's not that I don't really fancy you
And it's not that you're not my type of girl

But I don't wanna be your next prey
I don't wanna be a shoulder to cry on
And the reason, I'll tell you
I'm already with someone

Shadows

Our shadows lay over fields
Where the days expire
Bare in this grass by the pond
Your beloved body I admire

Splendour
Getting closer to real enlightment
Whisper
Hundred thousand eyes witness silent
Underneath the constellation of the stars

Time's passing by
And observes us with saddened poses
Hidden in ferns in this garden
Where midnight linger in overdoses

Splendour
Getting closer to real enlightment
Whisper
Hundred thousand eyes witness silent
Underneath the constellation of the stars

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

On the other side

I should have walked out slowly
I ran as fast I could
With angry dogs behind me
Sirens in the neighbourhood

I don't know how to pronounce it
I can't even spell it right
But it all became much tougher
When I fell asleep that night

When we meet on the other side
Will you recognize me then
Can we take up from our last goodbye
Or back from start again

You always woke me up so early
Now I stay too long in bed
Guess I just can't find a reason
Why I should get up instead

When we meet on the other side
Will you recognize me then
Can we take up from our last goodbye
Or back from start again

I guess can remember
Every nightmare that I've had
But my only consolation
Is to go to sleep again

When we meet on the other side
Will you recognize me then
Can we take up from our last goodbye
Or back from start again

Or back from start
Again

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

Suicide is painless

Through early morning fog I see
The visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld from me
I realise and I can see

That suicide is painless
It brings on any changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

The game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna loose it anyway
But losing cards are some days late
This is all I have to say

Suicide is painless
It brings on any changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

The sword of time will pierce our skin
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger watch it grin

Suicide is painless
It brings on any changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that I keep
"Is it to be or not to be"
And I reply "Oh why ask me ?"

Suicide is painless
It brings on any changes
And I can take or leave it if I please

And you can do the same thing if you please

*** A big thanx to Tictac for this one ***

Monologue

Am I only dreaming
Is this to believe in
Maybe it's just a fantasy
Or is it really happening
Happening to me

I was always lonely
Thinking love was only
Meant for those in fairytales
Never to be ours one day
Never to be ours

Bird has lost a feather
Fallen fruit we gather
Wind blows in the roseries
Whisper secrets in the trees
For us to unreveal

Hear the bells above us
Call the seasons of lust
Nature's dancing dressed in green
To a distant tambourine
Distant, so are we

Am I only dreaming
Is this to believe in
Maybe it's just a fantasy
Or is it really happening
Happening to me

Blind

I've been so blind
I've been so blind
I've been so blind
I've been so blind

I've been searching every stone
Taken every path unknown
Followed where the wind has blown
I've been so blind

I've been climbing every tree
After swimming the darkest sea
Nothing did appear to me
I've been so blind

I didn't see that she was standing
Right in front of me
I never noticed she'd been walking
Right here beside me

I didn't hear that she was singing
All my favourite songs
She had been there waiting
All the time, all the time

She's the woods and I'm the moss
She’s the sky now filled with stars
In the fire I'm the branch
I've been so blind

I didn't see that she was standing
Right in front of me
I never noticed she'd been walking
Right here beside me

I didn't hear that she was singing
All my favourite songs
She had been there waiting
All the time, all the time

I've been so blind
I've been so blind
I've been so blind
I've been so blind

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

The Chain

I would like to take a walk with you
But I'm scared it's gonna rain
Just a picnic in the park for two
But the gardener will complain

I've been followed by the worst of luck
Maybe you can break this chain
Come with me, come with me
Darling can't you see
I'm in love

All I dream of is a date with you
But I don't even know your name
Should I ask you out for bowling night
Maybe it's not your favourite game

I've been followed by the worst of luck
Maybe you can break this chain
Come with me, come with me
Darling can't you see
I'm in love

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

An Eternity

Listen carefully now
You are gonna be upset
But I have to leave
Maybe I'm not coming back

This is the last verse of our song
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Let's make this moment last an eternity

I'd love to stay
But it's just not possible
Oh please don't cry
We'll meet if I return

This is the last verse of our song
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Let's make this moment last an eternity

The final chapter of our book
A last supper we will cock
And make this moment last an eternity
An eternity

Calm down my love
We ain't got much time left
I know it will be long
Hope you'll be here when I come back

This is the last verse of our song
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Let's make this moment last an eternity

The final chapter of our book
A last supper we will cock
And make this moment last an eternity
An eternity, an eternity

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

They gather driftwood on the beach
Collecting branches, raking leaves
Looks like they're gonna make a fire
I guess it's that time of the year

Out Of Focus

For an hour every year
Sitting in his comfortable chair
His instruments
Controlling my refractive state
By changing settings

Reading the letters on the chart
Change eye and take it from the stars
Shifting lenses
It’s better this way or that
A perfect vision

Every hour that she's here
I see her sitting in my comfortable chair
No instruments
Could control our delicate state
We’re changing settings

And because of the tears in my eyes
I saw her leaving out of focus
Because of the tears in my eyes
I saw her leaving out of focus

Because of the tears in my eyes
I saw her leaving out of focus

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

Cockroach

Coincidence

When every shortcut takes you far
And logic makes no sense
We all prefer to see at as
A small coincidence

I recognize no way of life that I can call my own
I only see directions pointing towards the unknown
But somewhere someone cross the street
And so we meet again

When every shortcut takes you far
And logic makes no sense
We all prefer to see at as
A small coincidence
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The rocks that smash the boat at night
And winds that torture sea
The sound of storms and thunder that creep closer as we breathe
And as we wish for silent waters
Noise floods over us

When every shortcut takes you far
And logic makes no sense
We all prefer to see at as
A small coincidence

Mr Fredrikson

In the shadow of the darkest hour
I hear them talk, it all turned sour

I can feel there's something going on
Between you and Mr Fredrikson
If it's true, you can be sure I will be gone
By the morning

Many times I've tried to figure out
For what reasons you're behaving like you do
I don't understand what it's all about
It came without warning
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
What can I say
What can I do
It's too hard to let you go
I know I've got some problems
But so do you

In the shadow of the darkest hour
I hear them talk, it all turned sour

I would like you to be honest with me now
And tell me the truth about the two of you
If you love him and there's nothing I can do
It's goodbye

It's very hard for me to do this thing
Maybe it's better if you tell me that we're thru
And if he can make you happy, run to him
I'm gonna cry

What can I say
What can I do
It's too hard to let you go
I know I've got some problems
But so do you

In the shadow of the darkest hour
I hear them talk, it all turned sour

In the shadow of the darkest hour
I hear them talk, it all turned sour

I Miss You Most Of All

I miss you most of all
When I wake up in the morning
And when you're not here by my side
When I go to bed at night
That's when I miss you the most

I miss you most of all
When I stroll along the river
I see couples hand in hand
Families playing in the sand
That's when I miss you the most
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I say to myself
Get a hold of yourself
Can't you see that she
Is never coming back

I miss you most of all
When arriving in an airport
People in the waiting room
Hugging loved ones who come home
That's when I miss you the most

I miss you most of all
Every moment I feel hungry
When I'm in a restaurant
At a table just for one
That's when I miss you the most

And so I say to myself
Get a hold of yourself
Can't you see that she
Is never coming back

I say to myself
Try to find someone else
Gotta try to move on
Get back on the right track

Orient Express

We leave the station barely moving
And slowly begin to accelerate
So we raise our glasses for a last time
I don’t remember what we celebrate

And we said our first hello
On the Orient Express
We got plenty of time to kill
And we sang and danced away
On the Orient Express
To the rhythm of the wheels of steel

I can hear them laughing
In the restaurant
You took me walking down the avenue
So we blow the candles
Make our wishes
How I wonder if they’re ever coming true
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And we said our first hello
On the Orient Express
We got plenty of time to kill
And we sang and danced away
On the Orient Express
To the rhythm of the wheels of steel

We’re getting closer to hundred miles an hour
When I saw a figure standing on the rails
I start to panic as the train’s approaching
It’s too late to pull the breaks

And we said our first hello
On the Orient Express
We got plenty of time to kill
And we sang and danced away
On the Orient Express
To the rhythm of the wheels of steel

And we fell in love
On the Orient Express
On this never ending journey home
And we kissed our last goodbye
On the Orient Express
There’s no turning back along the road

Hawkeye

Still searching
But I haven't found her yet
Still searching
She seems so so hard to get

Sometimes I wish that I had forgotten
That every picture disappear
They bring back memories what once was and
When you were near
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm searching
Roam the streets that we used to walk
Find nothing
Guess I'd need the eyes of a hawk

My heart turned cold when we two parted
And I still suffer from this chill
You left me here all broken-hearted
With a space to fill

But one day
I guess I'll bump into her
Without warning
But possibly not until
I've stopped searching

Dry Bones

(Melody composed by James Johnson / Lyrics inspired by Ezekiel 37:1-14)

Ezekiel connected dem dry bones
Ezekiel connected dem dry bones
Ezekiel connected dem dry bones
Now I hear the word of the Lord

Well, your toe bone connected to your foot bone
Your foot bone connected to your heel bone
Your heel bone connected to your ankle bone
Your ankle bone connected to your leg bone
Your leg bone connected to your knee bone
Your knee bone connected to your thigh bone
Your thigh bone connected to your hip bone
Your hip bone connected to your back bone
Your back bone connected to your shoulder bone
Your shoulder bone connected to your neck bone
Your neck bone connected to your head bone
Now I hear the word of the Lord
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Dem bones, dem bones gonna walk around
Dem bones, dem bones gonna walk around
Dem bones, dem bones gonna walk around
Now I hear the word of the Lord

Disconnect dem bones, dem dry bones
Disconnect dem bones, dem dry bones
Disconnect dem bones, dem dry bones
Now I hear the word of the Lord

Well, your head bone connected from your neck bones
Your neck bone connected from your shoulder bone
Your shoulder bone connected from your back bone
Your back bone connected from your hip bone
Your hip bone connected from your thigh bone
Your thigh bone connected from your knee bone
Your knee bone connected from your leg bone
Your leg bone connected from your ankle bone
Your ankle bone connected from your heel bone
Your heel bone connected from your foot bone
Your foot bone connected from your toe bone
Now I hear the word of the Lord

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones
Now I hear the word of the Lord

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones
Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones
Now I hear the word of the Lord

Antidote

I think I have to go
I’ve already had enough
I gotta get back home
Waking up will be quite rough

You should have told me to stop long ago
But I stayed til the end of the show
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I need an antidote
Or maybe just plenty of sleep
I’m gonna stay in bed
Until this is over

I don’t wanna wake up anymore
I want it back like it was before
And I regret that I followed you when
I had promised not to go there again

I need an antidote
I wanna get better soon
I need an antidote

And there’s noone to blame but myself
So impossible to ask you for help
You should have told me to stop long ago
But I stayed til the end of the show

I need an antidote
Or someone to turn back the clock
I need an antidote
I need an antidote

The Beginning of the End of Us

Once upon a time
The girl of mine came over
Just to say goodbye

I was in love with her
She was in love as well
But with someone else
Someone else

I sink into nostalgia
Again, solitude

The beginning of the end of us
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The beginning of the end of us
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And one magic day
I saw her close her sad eyes
When she passed my way

Oh I loved her so
She loved me in return
It's the greatest thing I've ever learned
I've ever learned

I still follow your footsteps
The trails in the mud

The beginning of the end of us
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The beginning of the end of us
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

I sink into nostalgia
And deeper despair

The beginning of the end of us
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The beginning of the end of us
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

Forgetyounot

Many years have passed between us
Many letters have been burnt
As I struggle to remember
All the lessons that've been learnt
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I can see it all before me
But the details slowly fade
I will forget what you said
Forget what you did
But I never forget how you made me feel

I will forget what you said
Forget what you did
But I never forget how you made me feel

So much time spent contemplating
Crossed the bridge of no return
Cheerish all the broken fragments
But lost everything we earned

I can see it all before me
But the details slowly fade
I will forget what you said
Forget what you did
But I never forget how you made me feel

I will forget what you said
Forget what you did
But I never forget how you made me feel

I forget you not, I forget you not
I forget you not

I forget you not, I forget you not
I forget you not

I can see it all before me
But the details slowly fade
I will forget what you said
Forget what you did
But I never forget how you made me feel

I will forget what you said
Forget what you did
But I never forget how you made me feel

Laura

If you have a chance to meet a girl like Laura
You must promise me you'll never let her go
Every day you have to tell her you adore her
And make sure that it shows

She might be the girl next door, maybe your neighbour
Or she might be living just across the street
Quite naive, perhaps it's just one thing about her
But still she's so unique

With her newspaper spread over her head
As a temporary shelter in the rain
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I was looking by chance through her open window
And I saw her seated silent in her chair
Sad expression on her face and with her chin low
Does she noticed I was there

Laura came by on her way to an audition
Said she had some really important words to share
All these little things that makes you keep on wishing
One day she would say je t'aime

With her newspaper spread over her head
As a temporary shelter in the rain

Drowsy / Too Young To Say Good Night

Drowsy on a subway train
I can hear you call my name
Is it my imagination?
Then like through a misty haze
I can see the cutest face
Yawning when I exit on my station

Home to me or home to you
It doesn't matter, you can choose
We drag ourselves through darkness
This town is asleep

It's not cold, it's not warm
We're not hungry anymore
And nothing can disturb us
We're busy like this

I know we should be sleeping
But we're much too young to say good night
I guess I should be leaving
But we're too in love to say goodbye
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Dancing barefoot on broken glass
Contemplating modern jazz
Smoking by the open window
Throw the alarm clock off the roof

Soon the dawn will bring this quiet
Situation back to life
Let this moment linger on
Forever's not enough

I know we should be sleeping
But we're much too young to say good night
I guess I should be leaving
But we're too in love to say goodbye

It would be so fine
One more glass of wine
Her unkempt hair tangled in mine
Sinking deeper, climbing higher
I see the trembling in your eyes


Moonshine

Sitting by the fire drinking moonshine
Slowly leaning over for a kiss
Saying to me honey oh you're so fine
You know it could be yours, all of this
Let's take our time, and we'll stay the night
We get high as the moon above

This is just like in the movies, you say
Just like in the movies, but I sense
It has a tragic end
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Take your daddy's car and come on over
We drive up to the top of the hill
With dirty nail and heavy smell of Red Bull
My baby's bringing out a bag of pills
Let's make a fire, and we'll stay the night
We get high as the moon above

This is just like in the movies, you say
Just like in the movies, but I sense
It has a tragic end

Oh oh, a tragic end, oh oh oh oh

This is just like in the movies, you say
Just like in the movies, but I sense
It has a tragic end

You put the radio on, I hear you singing
Trying to light up a cigarette
The music's good, come on let's see you swinging
Moving like a cut out silhouette
It's you I desire, come on, let's stay the night
We get high as the moon above

This is just like in the movies, you say
Just like in the movies, but I sense
Just like in the movies, you say
It has a tragic end

Be Yourself

You say you're ordinary
On the contrary
I think you're an extraordinary girl
There's nothing as unique as
Being exactly who you are, who you are
Be yourself

I see so many people
Ridiculous people
Trying very hard to be
Something they're not

So very superficial
Makes them not special
They’re all the same, all the same
Be yourself

Be yourself
Nobody does it better than you
Be yourself
Nobody does it better than you

You and I we're very different
Very individual
Each others opposites attracts
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And one thing I love about you
You follow no leaders
You go your own way, your own way
Be yourself

Be yourself
Nobody does it better than you
Be yourself
Nobody does it better than you

Be yourself

I Love Him So

You seem so confident
I feel so unsure
When I take you in my arms
And lead you through the door

We knew this day would come
We prepared us well
What result will come out of this
Only time will tell

I love him so

Your little hand in mine
Squeeze my finger hard
I can feel your little heart
Oh it beats so fast

They give you something now
I don't know what it is
And on the count to three
You will be asleep
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
One
Two
Three

I love him so

NDE

I've been reminded of it lately
I guess the gods above must hate me
I always thought I was immortal
Now I know
I gotta think of what's important

I don't remember how it started
Maybe too many years of heartache
Now I could see my life in review
Was it real
Or just an endless lucid dreaming

Oh it's frightening (it's frightening)
But yet so delightful (delightful)

I saw a strong light in the tunnel
Shining brighter than the sun, and
Knocking on the door to heaven
I heard a sound
Backing up the singing angels

Oh it's frightening (it's frightening)
But yet so delightful (delightful)
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I wasn't climbing up a stairway
More like floating, drifting away
A sense of total painlessness
But who knows
Maybe it's just hallucinations

Suddenly leaving my own body
Until I'm floating right above it
I could see myself immobile
Out of reach
Turning pale and almost blue eyed

Oh it's frightening (it's frightening)
But yet so delightful (delightful)

I Don't Know Much About Loving

I don't know much about loving
I never had the chance to get to know
But I would like to learn it all from you
I don't know much about loving

I don't know much about women
I met a few but nothing lasted long
I never figured out what I did wrong
I don't know much about women

Would you teach me, teach me, teach me
Every day you show me something new
Would you teach me, teach me, teach me
Each moment I pick up a thing or two
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I've never been a seducer
I guess I'm just too shy to even dare
That makes it hard to show I really care
I've never been a seducer

Would you teach me, teach me, teach me
Every day you show me something new
Would you teach me, teach me, teach me
Each moment I pick up a thing or two

I've become an expert on lonely
I've learned enough about loneliness before
I don't want to study that subject anymore
I've had enough of being lonely

Scarecrow

If I recall the things we used to do
It seems I had this strange effect on you
The closer we got you moved further away
Further away

The fog got thicker and the clouds broke up
The ghosts were dancing and refused to stop
It all appeared completely indistinct
So indistinct
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Since you said goodbye
All I do is fantasize
That for another moment
I can look into your eyes
Since you said goodbye
Said goodbye

Although the darkest nights for us were made
The moon was full but it refused to stay
And morning light always returns too soon
Much too soon

There will be many other nights like this
But never other lips that I may kiss
I won't be standing here with someone new
I'll wait for you

Since you said goodbye
All I do is fantasize
That for another moment
I can look into your eyes
Since you said goodbye
Said goodbye

I won't be here to see your beauty fade
Each night that follows wear a darker shade
And we'll go wandering under the stars
Never more

I Can Count On You

I know the key to your front door
Is still hidden in the same place as before
And knowing that I can come and go
As I want to is so generous of you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You always make me feel so very welcome
It's a kindness rare to find
And when I've been through trouble
You've been there to help me find
A place to hide

I can count on you

When I don’t know where I'm going
When I'm lost and when in doubt
When I don't know what I'm doing
You help me find a way out

Many nights I've been sleeping
In the Junkyards and on benches
In the park
You're the only one who would
Always accept a collect call from a far

I can count on you

When I don't know where I'm going
When I'm lost and when in doubt
When I don't know what I'm doing
You help me find a way out

I'll always be so thankful for
The times I've been sleeping
On your couch
And thinking of it makes my
Lonely heart warm
And you've kept it warm
Since day one

Alone Too Long

I'd never been as struck before that hour
Suddenly appeared her figure like a flower
What is full of taste now used to be so sour
Got nothing to resist her now
I'm overpowered

Just a sudden love and oh so sweetly
She stole my heart oh so completely

I've been alone, alone, too long
I've been alone, alone, too long
Now it's gone

I must have turned pale, in a deadly shade
And my two numb legs refused to walk away
My body seemed like it had turned to clay
Moulded into this
And put in an oven for a day

Just a sudden love and oh so sweetly
She stole my heart oh so completely
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I've been alone, alone, too long
I've been alone, alone, too long
Now it's gone

I couldn't see a thing, I couldn't say a word
And as she spoke the loveliest song
I ever heard
And then something I can't explain occurred
And all I knew before was gone within a blur

Just a sudden love and oh so sweetly
She stole my heart oh so completely

I've been alone, alone, too long
I've been alone, alone, too long
Now it's gone

Celebrate the wonders

You close your eyes
To protect from the world outside
You close your eyes
And pretend it’s not there

You hide your smile
Maybe just for another day
You hide your smile
When you say nothing’s real

But take a look
Celebrate all the wonders
Realize how much fun there is
When you open your eyes

You close your heart
Let the happiness in for once
You close your heart
still afraid it will show

It’s not the way
That our beautiful worlds collide
It’s not the way
All the flowers may grow
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But take a look
Celebrate all the wonders
Realize how much fun there is
When you open your eyes

Just take a look
Celebrate all the wonders
Realize how much fun there is
So much beauty to find

Bury The Hatchet

Paranoid

I don't think you really love me anymore
You say you do but it doesn't feel quite like before
You're getting easily angry and I don't wanna fight
Oh no, but something doesn't feel right

You don't answer the mails I send to you
And you're not calling back like you say you'd do
Nowadays you hang out with your friends at night
Nothing wrong with that but something doesn't feel right
you always copy, paste and cheat
I'm sorry
I know that I should trust in you forever
And I'm just paranoid
Paranoid

I'm sorry
I have to try to stop being suspicious
I know I'm paranoid
Paranoid

You're not coming home directly after work
Just sneak in softly through the front door in the dark
Feels like a long time since I saw you in the light
Oh no, something doesn't feel right

You seem so thrilled when you mention a new friend of yours
How he's sweet and funny and smarter than me of course
And you're laughing with him when I'm out of sight
It's ok by me but something doesn't feel right

I'm sorry
I have to stop with these false accusations
I'm being paranoid
Paranoid

I'm sorry
I guess I'm just too scared of being lonely
And I'm just paranoid

I hear the ghosts they whisper secrets in my ears
Saying dirty things I just don't wanna hear
I can't believe it's true, I tell them to quiet
Oh no but something doesn't feel right

I don't think you really love me anymore
You say you do but it doesn't feel quite like before
You're getting easily angry , you know I don't wanna fight
Oh no, but something doesn't feel right

I am sorry
I know that I should trust in you forever
And I'm just paranoid
Paranoid

I'm sorry
I have to stop being so suspicious
I know I'm paranoid
Paranoid

You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone

I see you running
But no one's chasing you around
I guess it's your memories
And your shadow on the ground

You're never thankful for what you've got
But you'll miss me when I'm gone
you always copy, paste and cheat
Sometimes it seems like
We're losing the game
Long time before
We've even started to play

You're never thankful for what you've got
But you'll miss me when I'm gone
You're never thankful for what you've got
But you'll miss me when I'm gone

Maybe you feel like
You've been waiting like forever
But sometimes it's obvious
That you get what you deserve

You're never thankful for what you've got
But you'll miss me when I'm gone
'Cause you're never thankful for what you've got, no
But you'll miss me when I'm gone
When I'm gone

Don't look at the window
When you're afraid of the dark
The man on the outside looking in
Is just a branch

You're never thankful for what you've got
But you'll miss me when I'm gone
You're never thankful for what you've got
But you'll miss me when I'm gone

November

No birds, no bees
No leaves on trees
November

No butterflies
No sun kissed skies
November

No stories told
No hand to hold
November

No kiss goodnight
No love in sight
November
you always copy, paste and cheat
You remember when we first met, don't you
You recall our very first kiss, don't you
But it all was blown away
When autumn wind appeared

Was our short affair much more romantic
Laying on the beach with cotton candy
But I haven't seen you since
Your suntan disappeared

You know our love was burning like a candle
But the fire was too hard to maintain
In the rain, oh

When the summer ended you ignored me
Not like in the heat when you adored me
Now you're gone
I was abandoned like a summer cat

No birds, no bees
No leaves on trees
November

No butterflies
No sun kissed skies
November

You'll regret it when you're lonely, won't you
When you lay awake at night I haunt you
In the cold November rain
I stood alone and wept

Come inside my eyes
And dry those tears before they fall
Catch the drops because they will speak
A thousand words, oh

You remember when we first met, don't you
You recall our very first kiss, don't you
But it all was blown away
When autumn wind appeared

No birds, no bees
No leaves on trees
November

No butterflies
No sun kissed skies
November

No stories told
No hand to hold
November

No kiss goodnight
No love in sight
November

She's Almost You

There's a girl here sitting next to me
She reminds me of you
Something in her eyes and the way she smiles
I can say she's almost you

When I look at her in certain ways
I pretend I'm seeing you
It's both the ways she walks and how she talks
That makes me feel she's almost you

And the spell you put on me
Made you come back haunting me
So I haven't got the ghost of a chance
She's almost you
you always copy, paste and cheat
Slowly moving closer to me now
Shall we share a glass or two
When I hear her whisper in my ear
I realize she's almost you

And the spell you put on me
Made you come back haunting me
So I haven't got the ghost of a chance
She's almost you

And the spell you put on me
Made you come back haunting me
Then I haven't got the ghost of a chance
She's almost you

I guess this could never work
Not with someone like her
'Cause I'd always reminded of how much
She's almost you

And the spell you put on me
Made you come back haunting me
So I haven't got the ghost of a chance

'Cause the spell you put on me
Made you come back haunting me
Then I haven't got the ghost of a chance
She's almost you
She's almost you
She's almost you
She's almost you

Bury The Hatchet

Let's stop fighting
Let's stop arguing
Resolve this quarrel
And make peace
Can we bury the hatchet
And become friends again

Stop complaining
Criticizing
Start forgiving
And move on
Can we bury the hatchet
And become friends again
you always copy, paste and cheat
Let's open up
And start listening
To each other
Express our feelings
Eye to eye
There's nothing wrong
In asking for forgiveness
Make us priority
Number one

Let's stop fighting
Let's stop arguing
Resolve this quarrel
And make peace
Can we bury the hatchet
And become friends again

Let's kiss and make up
End this break up
Reunite and reconcile
Can we bury the hatchet
And become friends again

What's done is done
And now the feud is over
Let's try to focus on what's good
We realized instead of searching
For troubles
Our love is worth so much more

Let's stop fighting
Let's stop arguing
Resolve this quarrel
And make peace
Can we bury the hatchet
And become friends again

Snakes in The Grass

I don't wanna know
Exactly who you want to be
You keep it for yourself
And maybe that's the way it should be
I got nowhere else to go
Lost everything you've given to me
I listen but you won't tell
My eyes are open but I can't see

I don't wanna hear
What you are expecting from me
You're dragging me through hell
You play me like a lion to feed
The voices in my ears
Keep telling me that this can't be real
I must be someone else
Nothing's like it appears to be
you always copy, paste and cheat
I guess I'm just a snake in the grass
If you can't trust me
I guess I'm just a snake in the grass
If you can't trust me
I gotta change this skin
That I'm a prisoner in

I know you're standing near
Don't hesitate come closer to me
You got nothing to fear
The truth is often harder to see
Imagine with your eyes closed
Unconscious you're pretending to be
Someone you were before
You're trying but can't find what you seek

I guess I'm just a snake in the grass
If you can't trust me
I guess I'm just a snake in the grass
If you can't trust me
I gotta change this skin
That I'm a prisoner in

Advice To My Younger Self

If I could go back in time
And give my younger self some advice
I'd tell myself, try not to be so shy

And I would tell the little me
Let's hang out with the dangerous guys
And tell the truth
Don't get tangled up in lies

I regret the things I never did
But don't regret what I should not have done
I learned a lot from my mistakes
They even made me strong

If I could go back in time
And give my younger self some advice
I'd tell myself, try everything
At least once or twice
you always copy, paste and cheat
I'd say, let's stay outside all night
And sleep under the starry skies
Don't listen when they say
Big boys don't cry

I regret the things I never did
But don't regret what I should not have done
I learned a lot from my mistakes
They even made me strong

If I could go back in time
And give my younger self some advice
Never let that kid inside you die

Wreck

All alone in the dark
No one knows my name
Once a ship I was conquering every wave
It's a long time since I disappeared
On the bottom of the sea

I'm a wreck, I'm not moving
But i'm not dead
I'm still breathing down here on the ocean bed
I've been sinking as low as I can sink
To the bottom of the sea

I never said this would be easy
But I'll never, never stop
Believing I'll be found

No one search anymore
They've forgotten me
So much fog on the windows of all my dreams
And my corpse has slowly disappeared
On the bottom of the sea

Once the wind in my sails was carrying me
Then it turned me around into the deep
And this stormy night the seagulls cried
When I sank to the bottom of the sea
you always copy, paste and cheat
I never said this would be easy
But I'll never, never stop
Believing I'll be found

Rainbow

I look at all the colours of the rainbow
It makes me feel much better when I'm blue
I love all the colours of the rainbow
It makes me glad 'cause it reminds me of you

I look at all the colours of the rainbow
It makes me forget my troubles when I'm blue
I love all the colours of the rainbow
It makes me happy every time I feel low

Red and orange, yellow or green
Blue and indigo or violet
you always copy, paste and cheat
Rainbow, rainbow
Funny little rainbow
I always stop and admire how
Beautiful you are when you appear

Rainbow, rainbow
Magic little rainbow
You never seize to impress me
But how sad it is
When you so quickly disappear

Nightmares are dreams too

Next time you wish for your dreams to come true
Remember
Nightmares are dreams too
you always copy, paste and cheat
You look at all that glitters and swoon
Remember
A diamond is only a stone

Non Albums tracks

By This River

( Brian Eno cover )

Here we are
Stuck by this river
You and I
Underneath a sky that's ever falling down, down, down
Ever falling down

Through the day
As if on an ocean
Waiting here
Always failing to remember why we came, came, came
I wonder why we came

You talk to me
As if from a distance
And I reply
With impressions chosen from another time, time, time
From another time

Capricorn

(Moonshine EP)

Capricorn, she’s a Capricorn
That’s all I know about her
Capricorn, she’s a Capricorn
I don’t wanna be without her

She was working in a bar
I used to watch her from a far
And see her float across the room
She told me she was born
When the snow begins to fall
And the river turns to ice

Capricorn, she’s a Capricorn
Well, that’s the name I call her
Capricorn, she’s a Capricorn
Gotta tell her that I love her

Always hidden in a corner
Next to men just back from war
Just admiring the scene
She would tell me all about
When the temperature make you numb
And the glamour when winter starts

Capricorn, she’s a Capricorn
That’s all I know about her

But her winter frinds one day
Like the birds had flewn away
And the few that stay don’t sing

Capricorn, she’s a Capricorn
That’s all I know about her

False Alarm

( She doesn't live here anymore EP )

If my heart was made of wood
And your true passion made of fire
Would you follow me

If I was unable to swim
And ocean wide was your desire
Would you swallow me

Promise me you'll be ever safe from harm
And always try to stay away
Maybe it all was just a false alarm
I know it's hard to disobey

If the desert is my love
And your emotions like the sun
Would you hide for me

If my last hope is a flame
And your touch like a violent storm
Would you die for me

Promise me you'll be ever safe from harm
And always try to stay away
Maybe it all was just a false alarm
I know it's hard to disobey

If my vows would be of steel
And your effection magnet, would it be enough
If my tears was made of glue
Then maybe I could stick to you for years to come

Promise me you'll be ever safe from harm
And always try to stay away
Maybe it all was just a false alarm
I know it's hard to disobey

*** Thanx a lot to Jay-Jay Himself who sent me these lyrics ***

It would be easy for me to say I'm fine, but I'm not

( The Long Term Physical Effects Are Not Yet Known LP Deluxe Edition )

It would be easy for me to say I'm fine
But I'm not gonna lie
It would be easy for me to change my mind
But I won't say goodbye

'Cause maybe someday, maybe somewhere
Maybe someone understand
Maybe someday, maybe somewhere
Maybe someone understand

It wasn't easy for me to realize
I was lost, no need to hide
It wasn't easy, no matter how I tried
To wake up what had already died

But maybe someday, maybe somewhere
Maybe someone understand
Maybe someday, maybe somewhere
Maybe someone understand

It must be easy to see that once again
It's gone too far and I'm to blame
I guess there's too many details to explain
There's no way back from where I came

But maybe someday, maybe somewhere
Maybe someone understand
But at the moment It doesn't look good
I think you'll never understand

It would be easy for me to say I'm fine
But I'm not

*** Thanx a lot to Jay-Jay Himself who sent me these lyrics ***

Laura

(Bat For Lashes cover)

You say that they've all left you behind
Your heart broke when the party died

Drape your arms around me and softly say
Can we dance upon the tables again

When your smile is so wide and your heels are so high
You can't cry
Put your glad rags on and let's sing along
To that lonely song
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You're the train that crashed my heart
You're the glitter in the dark
Oh Laura, you're more than a superstar

And in this horror show
I've got to tell you so
Oh Laura, you're more than a superstar

You say that you're stuck in a pale blue dream
And your tears feel hot on my bedsheets

Drape your arms around me and softly say
Can we dance upon the tables again

When your smile is so wide and your heels are so high
You can't cry
Put your glad rags on and let's sing along
To that lonely song

You're the train that crashed my heart
You're the glitter in the dark
Oh Laura, you're more than a superstar

You'll be famous for longer than them
Your name is tattooed on every boy's skin
Oh Laura, you're more than a superstar

You're the train that crashed my heart
You're the glitter in the dark
Oh Laura, you're more than a superstar

And in this old horror show
I've got to let you so
Oh Laura, you're more than a superstar
You're more than a superstar

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

Loud Places

(Jamie xx cover / NDE EP)

I go to loud places
To search for someone
To be quiet with
Who will take me home

You go to loud places
To find someone who
Will take you higher than
I took you

Didn't I take you to
Higher places you can't reach without me
I have never reached such heights (reach without me)
I feel music in your eyes
I have never reached such heights

I go to those places
Where we used to go
They seem so quiet now
I'm here all alone

You go to new places
With I don't know who
And I don't know how
To follow you

Higher
I take you higher and I'll take you
Didn't I take you higher
I take you higher
I take you higher and I take you
Didn't I take you higher
I take you

Didn't I take you to
Higher places you can't reach without me
I have never reached such heights (reach without me)
I feel music in your eyes
I have never reached such heights

I feel music in your eyes
I have never reached such heights
I feel music in your eyes
I have never reached such heights

You're in ecstasy
Without me
When you come down
I won't be around

Marble House

(The Knife feat. Jay-Jay Johanson / Silent Shout LP)

I cut your nails and comb your hair
I carry you down the stairs
I wanted to see right through from the other side
I wanted to walk a trail with no end in sight
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
The moment we believe that we have never met
Another kind of love, it's easy to forget
When we are all alone, then we do both agree
We have a thing in common, this was meant to be

You close my eyes and soothe my ears
You heal my wounds and dry my tears
On the inside of this marble house I grow
And the seeds I sow will grow up prisoners too

The moment we believe that we have never met
Another kind of love, it's easy to forget
When we are all alone, then we do both agree
We have a thing in common, this was meant to be

Now where's your shoulder
What is its name
What's your scent
Say it again
If it goes faster
Can you still follow me
It must be safe
When it's on TV

I raise my hands to heaven of curiosity
I don't know what to ask for
What has it got for me
The others say we're hiding
It's as forward as can be
Some things I do for money
Some things I do for free

Paranoid

I don't think you really love me anymore
You say you do, but it doesn't feel quite like before
You're getting easily angry and I don't wanna fight
Oh no, but something doesn't feel right

You don't answer the mails I send to you
And you're not calling back like you say you'd do
Nowadays you hang out with your friends at night
Nothing wrong with that, but something doesn't feel right

I'm sorry, I know that I sould trust in you forever
And I'm just paranoid, paranoid

You're not coming home directly after work
Just sneak in softly through the front door in the dark
Feels like a long time since I saw you in the light
Oh no, something doesn't feel right

You seem so thrilled when you mention a new friend of yours
How he's sweet and funny and smarter than me of course
And you're laughing with him when I'm out of sight
It's ok by me, but something doesn't feel right

I'm sorry, I have to stop with these false accusations
I'm being paranoid, paranoid
I'm sorry, I guess I'm just too scared of being lonely
And I'm just paranoid

I hear the ghosts, they whisper secrets in my ears
Saying dirty things I just don't wanna hear
I can't believe it's true, I tell them to be quiet
Oh no, but something doesn't feel right

I don't think you really love me anymore
You say you do, but it doesn't feel quite like before
You're getting easily angry and I don't wanna fight
Oh no, but something doesn't feel right

I'm sorry, I know that I sould trust in you forever
And I'm just paranoid, paranoid
I'm sorry, I have to try to stop being suspicious
I know I'm paranoid, paranoid

Paris

( Best Of 1996-2013 )

When I walk the streets of Paris
I can't stop wondering where is
That bohemian girl who used to stop
And say, "hello, I miss you"

I take Rue Richelieu
Start at Comedie Française
Palais Royal on my right
Straight up parallel Rue St. Anne
I know this well

I see Place des Victoires
Leave first arrondisement
Pass bibliotheque Nationale
Rue Colbert and Augustin
Cross Quatre Septembre

When I walk the streets of Paris
I can't stop wondering where is
That bohemian girl who used to stop
And say, "hello, I miss you"
I miss you

When I walk the streets of Paris
I can't stop wondering where is
That peculiar girl who'd follow where
The wind would blow
I miss you

I head up towards Pigalle
Crossing Boulevard Montmartre
Take Rue Fontaine to Place Blanche
Joseph de Maistre and Rue Lamarck
And here we are

When I walk the streets of Paris
I can't stop wondering where is
That bohemian girl who used to stop
And say, "hello, I miss you"
I miss you

When I walk the streets of Paris
I can't stop wondering where is
That bohemian girl who used to stop
And say, "hello, I miss you"
I miss you

When I walk the streets of Paris
I can't stop wondering where is
That peculiar girl Who'd follow where
The wind would blow
I miss you

Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond

( Rush Bonus CD )

Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want
Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want
Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want
Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want more
Diamonds can never die
And so can't my lover
I searched and discovered
You are immortal too
A bottle of Champagne
With caviar and oysters
Whatever your choice is
I know what I prefer
Most delicate perfume
And crystals and roses
Will always be losers
Whenever you're around
And I don't want no gold
And pearls are too cute
There's no substitute
Because my love is true
Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want
Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want
Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want
Ruby, emerald, sapphire and diamond
Everybody's going for desire but I want more

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

Seven inch

( La confusion des genres OST )

Now they call me seven inch
Nowadays I'm doing nothing, sitting by the TV watching
Talking less and thinking of what adolescence learned
Hours passing the occasion, major lack of inspiration
Waiting for some fun to happen before it's too late
Lonely days and lonely evenings, with a phone that never rings
Playing stupid games on my computer makes it worse
Now thay call me seven inch
Sleeping longer, still I'm tired, studying less, no books have I read
Walking back and forth upon the carpet in this room
Every time I sit and call all the numbers on my wall
No one ever answers, it gets you in the end
Should be writing songs about it, or a diray note at least
Creativity, come back to me, I just can't wait
Now they call me seven inch
Nowadays they call me, seven inch
Cowardice and phoney, seven inch
For lots of different reasons, seven inch
Even in the free zones, seven inch
People call me seven inch, is this hell or heaven
Pinch my arm to see if I'm awake, I mean no harm, so
Give me a break, I'm just like sissy was in carrie and
Missy was last summer, to anybody passing by I give my
Number, come on, take it slow, jay jay, don't try to
Push it, if you're in a hurry you can blow it

Time won't heal

( Rush Bonus CD )

Time will never heal
What was here in my heart
Time will never heal
What was here in my heart
Was scattered in the wind
Many years ago
Was scattered in the wind
Many years ago
Time cannot replace
What was here in my arms
Time cannot replace
What was here in my arms
You used to come on by
But not anymore
You used to come on by
But not anymore
I've seen people come and go
And seasons passing by
There's moments when i'm missing you
And moments when i cry
But time will not erase
What my memory stored
Time will not erase
What my memory stored
But your heart turned as cold
As the winter here
But your heart turned as cold
As the winter here

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

Two Fingers

( Bang Bang feat. Jay Jay Johanson )

He used to sit here on my right side
Telling stories from the past
He gave me shelter and a place to stay
Served me water and bread

Two fingers
Pointing at the stars
Two fingers
On your hand
Two fingers
Showing me the way
Two fingers

She used to sit here on my left side
With her wonderful smile
She read me poems and she kept me warm
Inspiration and love

Two fingers
Pointing at the stars
Two fingers
On your hand
Two fingers
Showing me the way
Two fingers

They used to sit here on my both sides
Made this tougher to lie

Two fingers
Pointing at the stars
Two fingers
On your hand
Two fingers
Showing me the way
Two fingers

Video Games

(Lana Del Rey cover / NDE EP)

Swinging in the backyard
Pull up in your fast car
Whistling my name
Open up a beer
And you say, "Get over here
And play a video game"

I'm in her favorite sun dress
Watching me get undressed
Take that body downtown
I say you the bestest
Lean in for a big kiss
Put his favorite perfume on
Go play a video game

It's you, it's you, it's all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time

Heaven is a place on Earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad guys
Honey, is that true

It's better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby, now you do

Singing in the old bars
Swinging with the old stars
Living for the fame
Kissing in the blue dark
Playing pool and wild darts
Video games

She holds me in her thin arms
Drunk and I am seeing stars
This is all I think of
Watching all our friends fall
In and out of Old Paul's
This is my idea of fun
Playing video games

It's you, it's you, it's all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time

Heaven is a place on Earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad guys
Honey, is that true

It's better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby, now you do

It's you, it's you, it's all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time

Heaven is a place on Earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad guys
Honey, is that true

It's better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby, now you do

You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone

I see you running
But no one's chasing
You around

I guess
It's your memories
And your shadow
On the ground

You're never thankful
For what you've got
But you'll miss me
When I'm gone

Sometimes it seems
Like we're losing
The game

Long time before
We've even started
To play

You're never thankful
For what you've got
But you'll miss me
When I'm gone

You're never thankful
For what you've got
But you'll miss me
When I'm gone

Maybe you feel like
You've been waiting
Like forever

But sometimes
It's obvious that
You get
What you deserve

'Cause you're never thankful
For what you've got
But you'll miss me
When I'm gone

'Cause you're never thankful
For what you've got
But you'll miss me
When I'm gone
When I'm gone

Don't look
At the window
When you're afraid
Of the dark

The man
On the outside
Looking in
Is just a branch

You're never thankful
For what you've got
But you'll miss me
When I'm gone

You're never thankful
For what you've got
But you'll miss me
When I'm gone
