Aching

My head is full of you
So full of you
Iím achiní for you, you

My head is full of you
Consumed by you
Iím achiní for you, you

Some kind of huh huh
Some kind of huh huh
Some kind of blue
Some kind of blue for you

My head is full of you
Consumed by you
Iím achiní for you

Judas

Were you reeling me in
Enticing me
Luring me
Drawing me
Did you plan it out
Sussing me
Circling about you
Well you should 'a' met a Mandy
And you should 'a' met a Cindy
And you should 'a' met anyone
Last season's anyone
Now you've stolen from me
And you've wrenched love from me
Now I canít give it out
íCause I can't surrender

Why are we futility
An exercise, can you really be so empty
This is flimsiness, shallowness
Just how you were steering it
You said I'd hate you
Well you should 'a' met a Mandy
And you should 'a' met a Cindy
And you should 'a' met anyone
Last season's anyone
Now you've stolen from me
And you've wrenched love from me
Now I canít give it out
íCause I can't surrender

Weren't you so lucky to get a fantasy
A very brainy submission
And now you don't know
That I hate you so
íCause you're not jealous
Oh ícause she makes you cosy

Well you should 'a' met a Mandy
And you should 'a' met a Cindy
And you should 'a' met anyone
Last season's anyone
Now you've stolen from me
And you've wrenched love from me
Now I canít give it out
íCause I can't surrender

Wind Out Of My Sails

No kisses left now, no caresses
All gone, dried up
Day is done now, closing down
Swept away, swept away

You take the wind out of my sail
You take out
You take the wind out of my sail
You take out

You take the wind out of my sail
You take out
You take the wind out of my sail
You take out

Empty now, hollow place
Funny how you become good
Good at looking pretty

You take the wind out of my sail
You take out
You take the wind out of my sail
You take out

Autopilot

Treading along

Knowing that the fuel is gone, gone
Just to keep to keep the ball rolling
Hoping a recovery will come come come
But it never ever never ever never
You give more, they push less
You give less, they push less, why
ĎCause in the end you save your face
If they look good you look good, look good, look good

More and more and more thieves jump on your wagon
More and more and more thieves jump on
More, more, more thieves jump on your wagon
Iím on autopilot, fuel is gone

I used to be pushing this bus
Now itís pulling me
I know my fuel is gone gone
But it never ever never ever never ever
You give more, they push less
You give less, they push less, why
ĎCause in the end you save your face
If they look good you look good, look good, look good

More and more and more thieves jump on your wagon
More and more and more thieves jump on
More, more, more thieves jump on your wagon
Iím on autopilot, fuel is gone

You Broke The Magic

Why do you do what you do, why love
And do you think about you, in vain
Do you think about you, my love
What do you think about you, in vain

You broke the magic
You broke the magic

Did you believe that you were right
Did you believe that you were true
Did you believe that it was right
To be the you that you once knew

You broke the magic
You broke the magic

Why do you do what you do, why love
And do you think about you, in vain
Can I forgive and forget, my love
What do you think I can do with you

You broke the magic
You broke the magic

Do you believe that you were right
Do you believe that you were true
Do you believe that it was right
To be the you that you once knew

Do you pretend that youíre in love
Do you pretend to tell the tale
Do you believe that youíre above
The kind of love that is so plain

You broke the magic
You broke the magic
You broke the magic

You bring me down

I donít know who I want and I donít know what I need
Iím in a situation that I know I canít read
I'm having conversation but I canít speak
I know that Iím listening but nothing I hear

You bring me down, down, down, down, down
When youíre around
And the unease displeases me somehow
When youíre around

Iím in anticipation of your next move
Iím engaging in your raging but I keep my cool
The expression on your face wish I could displace
Iím frustrated Ďcause I wait to pussy-foot around you

You bring me down, down, down, down, down
When youíre around
And the unease displeases me somehow
When youíre around

Iím all alone though everybodyís here
Laughter and banter ringing in my ear
High and low the stories go

The depression is oppressing Ďcause youíre leaning on me

You bring me down, down, down, down, down
When youíre around
And the unease displeases me somehow
When youíre around

I need to catch the bee in your bonnet
Turn it inside out with you on it
Whirl you around and then a pillow landing
So quell the fending and get on with me

You bring me down, down, down, down, down
When youíre around
And the unease displeases me somehow
When youíre around

I need to catch the bee in your bonnet
Turn it inside out with you on it
Whirl you around and then a pillow landing
So quell the fending and get on with me

You bring me down, down, down, down, down
When youíre around
And the unease displeases me somehow
When youíre around

Alien

I wish I spoke your language
I wish I spoke
You want one set of emotions
You canít be challenged

Youíre so afraid that it disgusts her
Maybe weíll help you, help you, help you, help you

How could your upbringing confuse you so much
That you lose touch with your ticking, tocking
How could your upbringing confuse you so much
That you lose touch with your ticking, tocking

Youíre not intelligent because youíre cynical
Itís just a blind defence
Secretly aimless is what you are
And youíve lost touch with your ticking, tocking

How could your upbringing confuse you so much
That you lose touch with your ticking, tocking?
How could your upbringing confuse you so much
That you lose touch with your ticking, tocking

Wastiní

"Youíre not that special, youíre not unique
Youíre not the most beautiful thing in the world"

Thatís wasting away, wasting the charms you have
Believing that beautyís far away
Wasting the charm
Caressing other fantasies so far away

"I just canít drool at you, itís not there
You need me too much anyway"

Thatís wasting, wasting, wasting the charms with you
Believing that beautyís far away
Wasting the charm
Caressing other fantasies so far away

The action of the head-wrecking is churning at my brain
Whirring up dementia and itís driving me insane

Thatís wasting away, wasting the charms you have
Believing that beautyís far away
Wasting the charm
Caressing other fantasies so far away

The action of the head-wrecking is churning at my brain
Whirring up dementia and itís driving me insane
The action of the head-wrecking is churning at my brain
Whirring up dementia and itís driving me insane

Thatís wasting away, wasting the charms you have
Believing that beautyís far away
Wasting
Caressing other fantasies so far away

Youíre that special, youíre unique
Youíre the most beautiful thing in the world

Fictitious Richard

Fictitious Richard came all on his merry way
Over the seas in his might
Fictitious Richard he valiantly stole away
Knowingly approaching the sight

Steadfastly stearing, "Ahoy!", heís appearing
Blowing the wind brought him tight
Fictitious, delicious, Richard was ambitious
In seeking a maiden to delight

And she came forth, she bound forth so eagerly drawn forth
She offered her jewels and her wares
And though she had an inkling of a suffering
She never advanced on her doubting
Sprang forth and leapt to his word

Fictitious Richard still steadfastly valiantly
Naming and proclaiming his love
Untouched and untravelled, neír had it been accomplished
By Richard stupendous in reign

Then she began to realize looking in his eyes
Pious holy innocent eyes that glorious pretension was ripe
And singing out her inkling of the suffering
Realizing of her doubting thinking of his dithering plight

Fictitious Richard sailed off on his merry way
Back oíer the seas in his might
Fictitious Richard he valiantly stole away
Knowingly leaving behind

And singing out her inkling of the suffering
Realizing of her doubting and pining in her sorrowful plight
Singing of his cum sancto spiritu, cum sancto spiritu, gloria!

And singing out her inkling of the suffering
Realizing of her doubting and pining in her sorrowful plight
Singing of his cum sancto spiritu, cum sancto spiritu, gloria!

And singing out her inkling of the suffering
Realizing of her doubting and pining in her sorrowful plight
Singing of his cum sancto spiritu, cum sancto spiritu, gloria!

Too Late

Iím not going to look
For approval from you anymore
No no more

ĎCause you want me to wait
Wait till itís too late for realizing
The illusion

Do you really want me to cry
And my heart do you want me to die
It will be too late to cry
And still my heart wonít die

I know your belief in me is weak
Itís purely fearfulness of the unknown
ĎCause you want me to wait
Wait till itís too late for the big climbing
And all alone

Do you really want me to cry
And my heart do you want me to die

It will be too late to cry
And still my heart wonít die
It will be too late to cry
And still my heart wonít die

1,000,001

Thereís a million and one things I like about you
Can we exchange it, can I trade it with you
But if youíre not gonna pay
Why should I stay, why should I stay with you?
If youíre not gonna pay, why should I stay, with you

Thereís a billion and one things I wanna change with you
Could we exchange it, I wanna change with you
But if youíre not gonna pay
Why should I stay, why should I stay with you
If youíre not gonna pay, why should I stay, with you

Thereís a trillion and one things I love about you
Can we exchange it, can I trade it with you
But if youíre not gonna pay
Why should I stay, why should I stay with you
But if youíre not gonna pay
Why should I stay, why should I stay with you
If youíre not gonna pay, why should I stay, with you
But if youíre not gonna pay
Why should I stay, why should I stay with you
If youíre not gonna pay, why should I stay, with you

Under My Skin

You get under my skin, inside
A bundle of bliss, inside
Oh what a lovely day
Your loveliness enfolding me

You get under my skin, inside
A bundle of bliss, inside
Wrapping around you
Wrapping and holding, and holding
Rapturing

Under my skin, inside
Bliss, inside

Love is a tricky thing

Alas bewildered lover youíve met loveís most famous friend
Sorrowís bid you morning and kicks back till the dayís end
And now youíre done with love and youíre not looking for love or his boring friend
Youíve built a world without love and wonder if youíre burying your face in the sand

Love is a tricky thing and it brings you lightly
Loveís not what you think it should be then it sings to you rightly

So then bewildered lover is this ringing any bells with you
And could you really want to sing back to love if it crept up and enveloped you
Or do you still want a kind of adjustable love that doesnít infuse and consume your being
A made-to-order kind of love for the heart that beats so weary

Love is a tricky thing and it brings you lightly
Loveís not what you think it should be then it sings to you rightly

Oh bewildered! Looking for a lover? Maybe youíll discover a friend
A friend to play the knowing glance game, two spoons of sugar and milk
Someone to share the minute details with in your playground love-well
When all the really good and bad things happen itís the one you want to tell but

Love is a tricky thing and it brings you lightly
Loveís not what you think it should be then it sings to you rightly

Love is a tricky thing and it brings you lightly
Loveís not what you think it should be then it sings to you rightly

Impossibly beautiful

I know not your heart or your mind or your name
Your Achilles heel or from where you came
Though itís written in the stars my desires will flame
I might take a pass on what the stars are saying
Youíre impossibly beautiful, is that Ďcause Iím waiting
Is that Ďcause Iím looking or is it just Ďcause you are

The indignant look as you catch the eye
Of the onlooker caught in a gaze at thine
As youíre innocently flaunting your beauty, Ďah!í
Youíve no idea how beautiful you are
Youíre impossibly beautiful, is that Ďcause Iím waiting
Is that Ďcause Iím looking or is it just Ďcause you are

Youíre not laid so bare by the vanity fare
To tamper with your charmsÖoxygen in a jar
Youíre not an assembled cocktail of bits and not
A stuck together look all made up with tricks
Youíre impossibly beautiful, is that Ďcause Iím waiting
Is that Ďcause Iím looking or is it just Ďcause you are

You donít play the love game of toxic love
Of trading love for beauty the winning of
Will you ever wish you knew what a spell you cast
Or maybe itís a beauty youíll always have
Youíre impossibly beautiful, is that Ďcause Iím waiting
Is that Ďcause Iím looking or is it just Ďcause you are

Grace

You gave me grace
You gave me grace
Help me today to feel the grace

Help me today
To feel the grace
ĎCause hereís the day
To feel the grace

You gave me grace
Help me today to prove
What good is grace if I donít know
If I donít know how to use it

Grace, you gave me grace
Help me today to feel the grace

Help me today
To feel the grace
Hereís the day
To feel the grace

You gave me grace
Help me today to prove
Help me today to find the grace Ďcause hereís the day
Hereís the day
Day to use it

Valentineís song

She broke his heart into a million billion pieces and
She stood and she watched him cry
She stood and watched him fumble around
He lost his heart, it couldnít be found

She walked away taking all of the embraces
Never seeing him shudder in pain
She didnít stroke his hair or his face like she so loved to
She just left and she left him to cry

Boy nothing you can do will stop you wondering
And nothing you can do will ease the pain
Remember you are blind to the intricacies of the mind
So just stay and stand the time
Pain goes away when you stand the time

Boy nothing you can do will stop you wondering
And nothing you can do will ease the pain
Remember you are blind to the intricacies of the mind
So just stay and stand the time
Pain goes away when you stand the time
Pain goes away when you stand the time

One more tune

Heís living in a world that has left him behind
He used to be taller, he used to be kind
Sheís plagued with images from the dark side of her mind
Unsavoury days, unsavoury nights

But she still waits to hear one more tune
One more tune, one more tune

She doesnít think too much about the meaning of her life
She thinks sheís happy and you think youíre right
Heís pulling faces, saying ďyou wonít like me when Iím mad!Ē
She says ďI donít like you anyway and the bravado dance!Ē

They still wait to hear one more tune
One more tune, one more tune
They still wait to hear one more tune
One more tune, one more tune

He turns tricks as he licks his lips holding court on a throne.
He gets kicks as he blinks thinking of rouses yet unknown
Sheís got a witch laugh and a guy who knows how to humour her
Heís in a romance with romance and likes her approval

And they still wait to hear one more tune
One more tune, one more tune!
One more tune, to hear one more tune
One more tune, one more tune!

Mr. Roving eye guy

Mr. Roving eye guy with high wall round his heart
He said he couldnít find a good enough girl for him
He found flaws with every girl heíd meet
She had big hands or funny feet
He found ways out of meeting the girl of his dreams,
Refusing to succumb or surrender to a new queen
YouÖ

Mr. Roving eye guy found a haven to protect him
From rejection nothing brought in or out from there
Dancing girls dressed up as romance
Aesthetically pleasing pretend romance
Good time romances not long time romance ďitís been funĒ,
A holding pattern of romances, comfort blankets, glances
YouÖ

Mr. Roving eye guy found a girl that every other
Mr. Roving eye guy would gaze at
Would he settle for the best of his bad lot
Or still roam the hills to see what theyíd got
Would he unleash his fears and let inertia bleed
Would he break his own rules and think of
And think of his dreams
Would he just you fall in love
Would he just you fall in love

You fall in love
You, you fall in love

Lifeís nudge

You didnít recognise the magic in your life till lifeís nudge knocked to shock you
Thirty days and nights full of cement inside, a crying feast emotion cocktail.
Limbs broken but moving the hurt-shell still hopeful you file it all under bewildered
Significances cling to ordinary things, peculiar superstitious comforts

Challenging times straining the head, puzzling the heart, a tumbling head
Puzzling days, puzzling dreams, treading water just to try to breathe
Get out of the world, get out of the dreams, and get out of the place, out of the anxiety
Out of the head, out of the sleeping, a weak kind of rage, get out of the dreaming

Time for thrills without the big dreams, reality reminds of Tolstoyís themes
Torment rips around the being but funnily life feels too good to believe him
Lifeís unexpected nudge has come and, canít blame anyone,
Lifeís unexpected nudge has come, you canít let it keep you down

Keep the wolves from your head as you wait for the horse,
The hollow insides slowly fill with hope
Eyes adjust to the dark light, shapes form like in the dead of night
Time to shed the heavy cape, the exhausted aura wants to emanate,
The exhausted auraĎs gonna radiate, the quivering smileís gonna find itís face

Time for thrills without the big dreams, reality reminds of Tolstoyís themes
Torment rips around the being, but funnily life feels too good to believe him

Lifeís unexpected nudge has come and, canít blame anyone,
Lifeís unexpected nudge has come, you canít let it keep you down

Monster

Fascinated by the charm of a beautiful and delicate thing
Dazzled by its beauty you f-forget you know what lies within in
You forget you know what lies within in in in

Innocently frolicking you stir the side of a nook then
You remember that you knew what was in
The beautiful tree before it you shook shook
The beautiful tree before it you shook shook shook shook shook shook shook

The beautiful tree needs to be preened, an elegant daily tending
But the power is known a monsterís grown,
Unstirred for fear of what might be pending,
Unstirred for fear of what might be pen-ding ding ding ding ding ding

But you know if you shake the tree the contents down will fall
And for a pretty tree the contents arenít really that very pretty at all
They arenít really that very pretty at all all all all all

Nothing to declare

You let me fall so I pushed those wicked dreams away
And now youíre gone I canít find those wicked dreams again

So why have I got nothing to declare but love for you
And itís just easy to declare my love for you

You let me dream so i gave the other dreams away
Now youíre gone i canít find the other dreams again

So why have i got nothing to declare but love for you
And itís just easy to declare my love for you

Iíve got nothing to declare but love for you
And itís just easy to declare my love for you

Nothing to declare but love for you
Iíve got nothing to declare but love for you

Knock knock

With innocent eyes and expectant faces
Momentary amnesia, lured by graces
Perils forgotten and the heart embraces
Knock knock, itís here again.
Itís a place inside you, you thought had died
It knocks on millions and thousands or tries and
It remembers yours Ďcause youíve subscribed
Knock knock, itís here again
And two become one familiarity restricted
One looks through the others eyes to see themselves reflected
Youíve got dreams to remember youíve got believe
Youíre cinderella remember and your knight is here
You might need to shine up that shiny armour
Or maybe you wonít need to shine it at all
With innocent eyes and expectant faces
Momentary amnesia, lured by graces
Perils forgotten and the heart embraces
Knock knock, itís here again.
Itís a place inside you, you thought had died
It knocks on millions and thousands or tries and
It remembers yours Ďcause youíve subscribed
Knock knock, itís here again
And two become one familiarity restricted
One looks through the others eyes to see themselves reflected
Youíve got dreams to remember youíve got believe
Youíre Cinderella remember and your knight is here
You might need to shine up that shiny armour
Or maybe you wonít need to shine it at all
With innocent eyes and expectant faces
Momentary amnesia, lured by graces
Perils forgotten and the heart embraces
Knock knock, itís here again

Dear John

Dear John, I wrote this song for you,
I want to do right by you, I want to make you shine

Dear John, I read between the lines for you,
You protected the future you, you had pride.

Many of the miracles then were golden,
Innocence, precious, wise and golden,
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

Everything is relative looking through the keyhole,
A kaleidoscope twisting, who tells the story then?
Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Wondering what itís going to be like

What a fantastic day! A marvellous wonder! What a great day!
What a fantastic day! What a great day!
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
What a fantastic day! A marvellous wonder! What a great day!
What a fantastic day!

Waiting on a moonlit night, wondering what itís going to be like
Waiting on a moonlit night, wondering what itís going to be like
Waiting on a moonlit night, wondering what itís going to be like
Waiting on a moonlit night, wondering what itís going to be like
And you revelled in the spell of a beating pleasing stroke of the country air
And you revelled in the spell of the echoes then to hush of the velvet pair
And you revelled in the spell of a beating pleasing stroke of the country air
And you revelled in the spell of the echoes then to hush of the velvet pair

What a fantastic day! A marvellous wonder! What a great day!
What a fantastic day! What a great day!

What a fantastic day! A marvellous wonder! What a great day!
What a fantastic day!

Cold Water

You pour cold water on my heart,
And I canít tell you because of my pride.
I know that your pounding plentiful blemished heartís hurting
I wish that I could unblemish your great heartís hurt,
And pull you through,
Pull you through, but I canít pull you through
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You pour cold water on my heart,
And you canít tell me. because of your pride.
I know that your beautiful blemished poor heart is hurting and
I wish that I could unblemish your poor heartís hurt,
But you choose to wallow, you choose to wallow,
So I canít pull you through
We pour cold water on our hearts,
And we canít talk about it because of our pride.
I know that your pounding plentiful blemished heartís hurting and
I wish that I could unblemish your great heartís hurt,
But you choose to wallow, you choose to wallow,
So I canít pull you through
I know that your pounding plentiful blemished heartís hurting and
I wish that I could unblemish your great heartís hurt,
And pull you through, pull you through,
I canít pull you through.

We pour cold water on our hearts,
And we canít talk about it because of our pride.

Julia

Tonight, wading in the water, Julia, Julia.
And I cry out to the river, Julia, Julia

The echoes of her beauty circle ripples of her losing
I hear echoes in my bosom, ripping circles in my oozing yearning
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Cry, I loved her then as I love her now when I can only
Cry, cry, to the river.

Tonight, wading in the water, Julia, Julia.
And I cry out to the river, Julia, Julia

The echoes of her laughter ringing ripples in my bosom
I hear echoes in the ripples from my crying, Oh My Julia

I cry, I loved her then as I love her now when I can only
Cry, cry, to the river.

Tonight, wading in the water, Julia, Julia.
And I cry out to the river, Julia, Julia

Just A Few Hours

Just a few hours in my heart before itís breaking,
I canít tell you that I love you or Iíll break it,
But I know whatís coming down the line for my heart so I canít say that I love you

Just a few hours in my heart before itís shaking,
I canít think of how I love you or Iíll break it,
But I know whatís coming down the line,
So I canít think about how I love you.
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Iím losing steam with grief and disbelief how tables turn, Iím reeling,
Washes full of tears, like a year within the night

Hey you! With my heart, how can I lick up the wound thatís tearing my side
Hey You! With my heart, how can I lick up the wound thatís tearing my side

Just a few hours in my heart before itís breaking,
I canít tell you that I love you or Iíll break it,
But I know whatís coming down the line for my heart so I canít say that I love you

Iím losing steam with grief and disbelief how tables turn, Iím reeling,
Washes full of tears, like a year within the night

Hey you! With my heart, how can I lick up the wound thatís tearing my side
Hey You! With my heart, how can I lick up the wound thatís tearing my side

Just a few hours in my heart before itís shaking,
I canít tell you that I love you or Iíll break it,
But I know whatís coming down the line,
So I canít say that I love you.

Galway Boy

She was serene when there were wigs in the green
When it was complicated she let him be
But she ruled as easy as water off a little duckís back
For posterity she built a sanctuary she sings

Galway Boy I love you,
My eyes are wide for you,
I delight in the fire in you,
I smile when I think of you.

Galway Boy Iíd side for you,
Your guises Iíd bind for you,
Your ideas Iíd hold true,
Your expounding Iíd listen to.

Ever tender tears for you,
Ever fastening falls,
Ever standing tall for
Ever my boy from Galway

She was serene when there were wigs in the green
When it was complicated she let him be
But she ruled as easy as water off a little duckís back
For posterity she built a sanctuary she sings
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Galway Boy I dream with you,
By night I fly with you,
Miracles I wish for you,
Iím spinning auras round you

Ever tender tears for you,
Ever fastening falls,
Ever standing tall for
Ever my boy from Galway

Galway Boy I dream with you,
By night I fly with you,
Miracles I wish for you,
Iím spinning auras round you

If I Lose You Tonight

If I lose you tonight my love,
Will I ever know the ache in you?
Will your soul sooth over the toil in you My Love,
or will the pain ever soften?

If I lose you tonight My Love,
Will your heaving lull within?
Will you eclipse the toil within your heart My Love
Or will your soul build a haven?

If I lose you tonight My Love,
Will you hold fort around the blue?
Will you guard the wall around your heart my love
Is there a furrow left to step through.
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If I lose you tonight My Love,
Will the sombre dispel and thin?
Will the sadness behind your eyes weave My Love,
And let a crevice small to begin?

If I lose you tonight My Love,
Will you ever know my toil within?
Will you ever know the ache inside my soul
And that your aching is familiar?

For I moulded a furrow small,
I furrowed more till the crevice tilled,
A chink of airy light began to fill My Love,
To fill the sombre heart again.

I wonít lose you tonight My Love,
I wonít leave your furrow untilled,
I wonít leave you tonight My Love,
Until the airy ray has broken in

I wonít leave you tonight My Love,
I wonít leave your furrow untilled,
I wonít leave you tonight My Love,
Until the airy ray has broken in

Moment

After the moment youíre shot down,
Like a haze-inducing drown

Will you eat humble pie and turn a blind eye, Oh now,
The elephantís in the room, fairytale is askew,
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And kind words can only frame
the rough and tumble of a harsh game, you thought was

Music to your ears before it was revealed that
Youíre not in the role of gate-keeper

But after you renew comes
A moment out of the blue.

After the moment youíre knocked down
Like a haze inducing crown

Ah but faces were light for you ,
How great a fighter were you
You were lured by the sight of, you caught yourself smiling and

Well meaning words can only frame,
The rough and tumble of a harsh game you thought was

Music to your ears before it was revealed that
Youíre not in the role of gate-keeper

But mountains move to bring a moment out of the blue.

After the moment youíre struck down
Like a haze inducing crown

You were king of the town, you were laughing renowned you,
Now you were hanging onto compliments, remembering talk of you

And sugar-coating wonít explain
the rough and tumble of this harsh game you thought was

Music to your ears before it was revealed that
Youíre not in the role of gate-keeper

But after you renew comes a moment out of the blue
And mountains move to bring a moment out of the blue.
a moment out of the blue
a moment out of the blue

Every Inch A Woman

Catherina so fine of a glorious time irrefutably she was blessed
Her intricate designs she surpassed showing signs that sheíd wander North, South East and West.

She was every inch a woman who revelled in every pictorial might,
She was every inch a woman with numerous various riches in sight.

By a fast country mile she excelled time and time
Word began to spread with tales of splendiferous merit
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
She was every inch a woman, a sparkling, magnificent luminous gem,
She was every inch a woman, spell-binding and blossoming, shining within.

Catherina so fine at this glorious time, in Glasgow she chanced upon Sally
Sally was sweet and Sally was chic, devotees around her were many.

A small envy began in the luminous gem, but so small Catherina could quell it,
And day after day as she wished it away, she discovered she couldnít allay it.

She was every inch a woman but darkness was growing and growing within,
She was every inch a woman but oh a great blackness so quickly set in.

Catherina so fine of a beautiful mind, no intricate designs were appearing
Intertwined in a mind was a scourge of a bind, an envy that made her so weary.

Catherina so fine of a beautiful mind,
her intricate designs had waned over time

She was every inch a woman but darkness kept growing and growing within,
She was every inch a woman no longer a sparkling magnificent gem.

She was every inch a woman but darkness had grown and grown within,
She was every inch a woman no longer a sparkling magnificent gem.

Worry

Worry is a thing that you build around a superstitious feeling and
Addle is a thing that can incapacitate your every movement

And it grows, and it erodes and it explodes your insides
And it grows, and it erodes and it explodes your insides

Do the next right thing, and for a minute do the next right thing
Do the next right thing, and for a minute do the next right thing

And let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go

Anger is a thing that you build around an inconvenient happening and
anger at the world is an inconvenient thing to be disbanded
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
ĎCause it grows, and it erodes, it explodes your insides
It grows, and it erodes and it explodes your insides

Do the next right thing, and for a minute do the next right thing
Do the next right thing, and for a minute do the next right thing

And let it go, let it go
Let it go, let it go

Happy Ever After

For eleven minutes round she was astounded when she heard it was
planned that sheíd marry the king and she thought,

Thank you for the dreams but hold a minute if you please,
I just need to dig deep in my dreaming wonderland

ĎCause somewhere someone killed something inside my heart without a trace,
Itís a mystery what the missing something was

So thank you for the dreams but wait a little if you please
I just need a little ease to crack a puzzle in my heart I know
So thank you for the dreams, wait a little if you please

Imperfect Love

This love has come now and yes itís true,
This love is here now no less a hue,
And let it come now, a relished thing,
And let it ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring this imperfect love.

ĎCause fleeting treasures vanish hushed down deep
And impressions carve down deep
Embers rest a fragile heap down deep
Steady imprints pave.

So will I hold love and let it drum
Or live a hard love or sad love numb
Or sit in cries of a rapid zest
Or like the cries, the cries, the cries of this imperfect love.
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But as the echoes bellow long down down deep
When the twilight rolls down deep
As the parting song is sung down deep
With the chiming casting tolls

Will have taken love and let it swell
Will I have dwarfed love or let it dwell
Will I have dealt love without a rein
Will I have carried, carried, carried this imperfect love.

ĎCause whether whimsical or plain down deep,
And whether quick or true down
Or only fleeting moments itís a gift
A great imperfect love

ĎCause whether whimsical or plain down deep,
And whether quick or true down
Or only fleeting moments itís a gift
A great imperfect love.

This love has come now and yes itís true,
This love is here now no less a hue,
And let it come now, a relished thing,
And let it ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring this imperfect love
