B i o g r a p h y
 (by Scott Kerr)

English trio London Grammar combined sparse electronic pop in the model of the xx with dramatic, big-voiced lead singer Hannah Reid, whose vocals evoke contemporaries Florence Welch and Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes. Reid and guitarist Dan Rothman met in the dorms of Nottingham University where they began writing music together in 2009 and later added multi-instrumentalist Dot Major to complete the lineup. The following years saw them refine their sound with atmospheric electronics and subtle percussion, and they often played to rooms of no more than ten people. Their popularity rose with the 2012 release of "Hey Now," which they uploaded to the internet and instantly found an online cult following. Their fans were not just in the U.K., but also on the other side of the world in Australia, where their self-released 2013 debut EP, Metal & Dust, reached the Top 5 of the iTunes chart. The same year they signed to Ministry of Sound and the single "Wasting My Young Years" appeared as the first release on the label. 2013 also saw them play a sold-out show at the Islington Assembly Hall and make an appearance at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton. In September 2013 the trio released their eagerly awaited debut album If You Wait.

If You Wait

Hey Now

Hey now
Letters burning by my bed for you
Hey now
I can feel my instincts here for you
Hey now
By my bed for you
Hey now
Hey now

Oh, you know it is frightening
Oh, you know it's like lightning
Hey now, now
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hey now
Letters burning by my bed for you
Hey now
Leave it to the wayside like you do
For you
Imagination calling mirrors for you
Hey now
Hey now

Oh, you know it is frightening
Oh, you know it's like lightning
Hey now, now
Hey now, now
Hey now, now
Hey now, now

Stay Awake

I am the blank page before you
I am the fine idea you crave
I live and breathe under the moon
And when you cross that bridge
I'll come find you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Stay awake with me
You know I can't just let you be
Stay awake with me
Take your hand and come and find me

I don't have a skin like you do
To keep it all in like you do
I don't have a soul like you
The only one I have is the one I stole from you

Stay awake with me
You know I can't just let you be
Stay awake with me
Take your hand and come and find me

Stay awake with me
You know I can't just let you be
Stay awake with me
Take your hand and come and find me

Shyer

I'm feeling shyer
And the world gets darker
Hold yourself a little higher
Bridge that gap just further

And all your being
I'd ask you to give it up
An ancient feeling love
So beautifully dressed up
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Feeling shyer
I'm feeling shyer
I'm feeling shyer

Maybe you should call her
Deep in the night for her
And all your being
I'd ask you to give it up
I'd ask you to give it up
Give it up

Wasting My Young Years

You crossed this line
Do you find it hard to sit with me tonight
I've walked these miles
But I've walked them straight lined
You'll never know what it's like to be fine
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm wasting my young years
It doesn't matter if
I'm chasing old ideas
It doesn't matter if
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe, I'm wasting my young years
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe I'm wasting my young years

Don't you know that it's only fear
I wouldn't worry, you have all your life
I've heard it takes some time to get it right

I'm wasting my young years
It doesn't matter if
I'm chasing old ideas
It doesn't matter if
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe, I'm wasting my young years
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe I'm wasting my young years

I don't know what you are
Don't leave me hanging on
Don't know what you are
Don't leave me hanging on

Sights

What are you afraid of
I know that you are
Keep it in your sights now
And don't let it go far

What are you afraid of
Making it better
Keep it by your side now
Whatever the weather

Keep it together
Keep it together

What did you do
Wonder where your heart came from
What have you done
My only friend keep on
Wander or leave
Turn into winter lights
Keeping your strength
When it gets dark at night

What are you made of
Water and glass
Keep it in your sights now
It's keeping you up

Keep it together
Keep it together

What did you do
Wonder where your heart came from
What have you done
My only friend keep on
Wander or leave
Turn into winter lights
Keeping your strength
When it gets dark at night
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Keep on
Keep the straight line
I'm running, running
The straight line

What did you do
Wonder where your heart came from
What have you done
My only friend keep on
Wander or leave
Turn into winter lights
Keeping your strength
When it gets dark at night

What you're feeling
It's what I'm feeling too
What you're made of
It's what I'm made of too

What are you afraid of
I know that you are
What are you afraid of
I know that you are

Strong

Excuse me for a while
While I'm wide eyed
And I'm so damn caught in the middle

I've excused you for a while
While I'm wide eyed
And I'm so damn caught in the middle

And a lion, a lion
Roars would you not listen
If a child, a child cries
Would you not give them

Yeah and man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong
And man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
Turn a blind eye
With a stare caught right in the middle
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You're caught in the middle

If a lion, a lion
Roars would you not listen
If a child, a child cries
Would you not give them

Yeah and man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong
And man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
While I'm wide eyed
And I'm so damn caught in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You're caught in the middle

Yeah and man seem so strong
And man speak so long
Man never been so wrong
And man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong

Nightcall

( Kavinsky Cover )

I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel
I'm gonna drive you through the night
Down the hills

I'm gonna tell you something
You don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dumped
But have no fear

There's something inside you
Is hard to explain
There's something inside you, boy
And you're still the same

I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel
I'm gonna drive you through the night
Down the hills

I'm gonna tell you something
You don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dumped
But have no fear

There's something inside you
And is hard to explain
They're talking about you, boy
But you're still the same
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Tell you how, to tell you how
Tell you how
I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel
I'm gonna drive you through the night
Down the hills

I'm gonna tell you something
You don't want to hear
I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel and how I feel


Metal & Dust

And so, you built a life on trust
Though it starts, with love and lust
And when your house, begins to rust
Oh, it's just, metal and dust

We argue, we don't fight
We argue, we don't fight

And all foundation that we made
Built to last, they disintegrate
And when your house begins to rust
Oh it's just, metal and dust
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We don't argue

We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We don't argue

We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We don't argue
We don't argue
We don't argue

Interlude

Grey stares beneath the moon
Tonight I know I'll be dreaming of you
People and rhythm instead
And there you'll be
There you'll be inside my head
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hmm, I will dream of you
Hmm, you'll dream of me, too
Hmm, your hands, they're on my face
Hmm, there would be no better place

Some miracle man must have shot me while I wake
I never ran fast enough, oh my mistakes
Would you really want me in the light of day
That very same man shot flaws right through my face

Hmm, I will dream of you
Hmm, you'll dream of me, too
Hmm, your arms curled round my waist
Hmm, there would be no better place

Could you have your arms around me
Could you have your arms around me

Flickers

The path is long, it's cold and wet
Desire paths will lead you quicker here than the rest
And you can hope for a life that is calm
But come in time you're gonna pick up one that feels a little hard
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The wind lays heavy, it weighs in stone
My instinct tells me I should walk this path alone
And you can hope for a life that is calm
But come in time, you're gonna pick up one that feels a little hard

And everytime I go to bed
An image of you flickers in my head
And everytime I fall asleep
An image of you flows in my dream

Footsteps have traced this land before
My skin is hurting, I cannot feel my feet anymore
And you can hope for a life that is calm
But come in time, you're gonna pick up one that feels a little hard

And everytime I go to bed
An image of you flickers in my head
And everytime I fall asleep
An image of you flows in my dream

And everytime I go to bed
An image of you flickers in my head
And everytime I fall asleep
An image of you flows in my dream

It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
Yeah it flickers, it flickers in my head
Yeah it flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers, it flickers
Here in my head
Yeah in my head now
In my head now
In my head now
In my head
In my head now
In my head
In my head now
In my head
Head, head, head
In my head
Flickers in my head
You'll flicker in my head
Flicker in my head
You'll flicker in my head

If You Wait

To treasure gold is fun
Brother, drop your bag at once
From the air to the people
A mass to take you on
From a clock to the past
A future that I own
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And to find just one other
Seems to be the goal of everyone
From the search to the hurt
I believed I could take you on
We would drink, we would dance
And you would watch me whenever you want

And can you give me
Everything, everything, everything
'Cause I can't give you anything

And if you wait, if you wait
I will trust in time that we will meet again
If you wait

If letters spell out words, son
You chose to put them in order, didn't you
From their meaning, the moment
You tried to take me on
From the air to the room
A bed that I own

And can you give me
Everything, everything, everything
'Cause I can't give you anything

And if you wait, if you wait
I will trust in time that we will meet again
If you wait
I will trust in time that we will meet again

Help

Here we won't find treason heart
Help
Quiet, he sleeps with anything but love
Help
Help
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We need him to stay between us
And do you really understand
Help
Can you help
Help
Help

Perfectly align to future's hour
Evidence he couldn't stay between us
Help
Help

Black paint on a white canvas art
Imprints of the words you chose to say
Help
Can you help
Darling, can you help
Darling, can you, can you help
Help
Help
Darling can you help
Can you

Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me

I'm still holding onto your waistband
Turn away and kick up the red sand
Summer's gone and now I'm bleeding
I can tell now you're thinking of leaving

Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
If you can
If you
If you

Black crows, dusty roads, and a fire
Burns in the distances higher
Hot stones, birth marks, a thin wire
Stretches to the distant horizon
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
If you can
If you can
If you can

I'm still holding onto your waistband
Turn away and kick up the red sand
Summer's gone and now I'm bleeding
I can tell now you're thinking of leaving

Help Me Lose My Mind

Talk to me
And watch me crumble
You will see
Me come undone

Faithfully
I will look over
There I'll find
What you've become
What you've become

You help me lose my mind
And you bring me something I can't define
Help me lose my mind, make me wonder what I felt before
Keep biding more time how much longer
Have I been waiting for
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Jealousy
Will be washed over
Carefully
We will come through

Could it be
Easy to start over
Somehow I will bring you to
What you've become

You help me lose my mind
And you bring me something I can't define
Help me lose my mind, make me wonder what I felt before
Keep biding more time how much longer
Have I been waiting for

Waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting

You help me lose my mind
And you bring me something I can't define
Help me lose my mind make me wonder what I felt before
Keep biding more time how much longer
Have I been waiting for

High Life

Give up the high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me
Follow you, I might the darkest way
Only to leave it once again

And I, I know
I, I know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Put out the bright light
To drive away
All that is honest
And all that is brave
And follow you, I might my darkest day
Only to leave it once again

And I, I know
And I, I know

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

We are, yeah we are, we own everything
We are, yeah we are, we owe nothing
We are, yeah we are, we own everything
We are, yeah we are, we owe nothing
We are, yeah we are, we own everything
We are, yeah we are, we owe nothing
We are, yeah we are, we own everything
We are, yeah we are, we owe nothing

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Maybe

Live young
For me as well
You did always take the weather

Be the one
To carry on
Like you always do

Photographs oh you look so well
And from here I can tell
You'll take a step away from what was so near

And where are you now
Without a sound
Are you there
And a face in the crowd
Feet over harsh ground
Are you there somewhere
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling

Quiet company
Is for you
Is for you to keep

Photographs oh you look so well
And from here I can tell
You'll take a step away from what was so near

And where are you now
Without a sound
Are you there
And a face in the crowd
Feet over harsh ground
Are you there somewhere

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling

And where are you now
Without a sound
Are you there
And a face in the crowd
Feet over harsh ground
Are you there somewhere

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Are you there somewhere
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Are you there somewhere

When We Were Young

I know there's a voice that's buzzing in your head
I know there's a heartbeat tripping in your step, tripping in your step
Glad I got my eardrums hurting and I can, hurting and I can
See this working out exactly how I plan

Everything is moving fully like a mess
I know that my voice is buzzing in your head, buzzing in your head
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You know I want this, honey
And it is better than money
And when I'm feeling weak
Think back to times when we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

I can feel your hands they're pulling at my dress
Living in a lie, only memories are left
I know there's a heartbeat tripping in your step
I know there's a voice that's buzzing in your head, buzzing in your head

You know I want this, honey
And it is better than money
And when I'm feeling weak
Think back to times when we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

I know there's a voice that's buzzing in your head
When we were young
I know there's a heartbeat tripping in your step, tripping in your step
When we were young
Glad I got my eardrums hurting and I can
When we were young

Truth Is A Beautiful Thing

Rooting For You

Let winter break
Let it burn 'til I see you again
I will be here with you
Just like I told you I would
I'd love to always love you
But I'm scared of loneliness
When I'm, when I'm alone with you

I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only, you are the only thing I've ever truly known
So, I hesitate, if I can act the same for you

And my darling
I'll be rooting for you
And my darling
I'll be rooting for you

And where did she go
Truth left us long ago
And I need her tonight
Because I'm scared of loneliness with you, baby
And I should let it go
But all that is left is my perspective
Broken and so left behind again

I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only, you are the only thing I've ever truly known
So, I hesitate, if I can act the same for you

And my darling
I'll be rooting for you
And my darling
I'll be rooting for you

Big Picture

Love, what did you do to me
My only hope is to let life stretch out before me
And break me on this lonely road
I'm made of many things, but I'm not what you are made of

Only now do I see the big picture
But I swear that these scars are fine
Only you could've hurt me in this perfect way tonight
I might be blind, but you've told me the difference
Between mistakes and what you just meant for me

Don't say you ever loved me
Don't say you ever cared
My darkest friend was

Have you forgotten all the lies you left there so fresh
Turning old in the air
And now, you have no weapons
You can try to get close to those I love
Do you really think they don't know what you're made of

Only now do I see the big picture
But I swear that these scars are fine
Only you could've hurt me in this perfect way tonight
I might be blind but you've told me the difference
Between mistakes and what you just meant for me

Don't say you ever loved me
Don't say you ever cared
My darkest friend

Wild eyed

Sun suffocate the atmosphere
But I'm safe with you far away from you
Another fire through another open door
It's what I'm living for

Breath of mine be all that you need
It's not much from a broken nothing
Wear another truth on your turned-up sleeve
This is everything I dream

He-hell no
I am wild eyed and waiting
Yeah hell no
I am wild eyed and wandering

Fortunately I have enough of you
You say it's not where we are
It's not what we choose
Looking out from all that you have built
With red skies I will drift

Yeah hell no
I am wild eyed and waiting
Yeah hell no
I am wild eyed and wandering

Yeah hell yeah
I am wild eyed and waiting
Hell hell no
I am wild eyed and wandering

What are your dreams
What are your dreams
What are your dreams, yeah
What are your dreams

Oh Woman Oh Man

I can see that you're giving up
It should not mean that much to me
And I don't know where the rest go
But everybody's been telling me no

But I'll always have a thing for you
I'd move the earth
But nothing made you want me better
There is nothing I can do
But steal the moon
But nothing made you want me better

Oh woman oh man
Choose a path for a child
Great mirrored plans
Oh woman oh man
Take a devil by the hands to
Yellow sands

And I can see that you're giving up
So tell me it should not mean this much to me
And I don't know where the rest goes
Everybody's been telling me no

But I'll always have a thing for you
I'd move the earth
But nothing made you want me better
There is nothing I can do
But steal the moon
And nothing made you want me better

Oh woman oh man
Choose a path for a child
Great mirrored plans
Oh woman oh man
Take a devil by the hands to
Yellow sands

Woman choose your man
Do you really understand
Oh, do you really understand
Do you really understand

Oh woman oh man
Choose a path for a child
Great mirrored plans
Oh woman oh man
Take a devil by the hands to
Yellow sands

Woman choose your man
Who understands
Oh, do you really understand
Oh, do you really understand

Hell To The Liars

Hell to the liars
Here's to you and me
Hell to the best of us
Here's to you and me

Hell to the righteous ones
Here's to them
The grey-suited walkers
Prestigious men

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love
Here's to the things you love

Those who are born with love
Here's to you trying
And I'm no better than those I judge
With all my suffering

Hell to the liars
Here's to you and me
I look way above us
Seeing no one free

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love
Here's to the things you love

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love
Here's to the things you love

Everyone Else

Time is worth everything
Words against the tide
Grand failing of failings
And everything you call mine
Blessings on horizons, I swear
I saw people on the floor
Underwater and over there
Under oceans and in my head

Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done

I'm flying away from fire
And I'm running from the known
I see the most beautiful colors here
In a terrifying storm

Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else in another life
Now look what you've done

And you won't find me here
You won't find me there
You won't find me anywhere
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done

Yeah

It's enough you look at me that way
It's enough you ever know
Are you every single time you stay
On a word you won't leave you alone

'Cause everyone else knows why
Everyone else saw why
Look what they've done
Everyone else saw why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done

Non Believer

We both know that you wanna love her
Skies are open crying, please don't believe her
'Cause she'll tell you lies and then say it doesn't matter
And you're pleased to see her calling them non-believers

But maybe she loves you and I'm just a preacher
Those burning skies and all who don't believe her
Non-believers, no
Don't believe her, no

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

Do you realize again, you chased an idea
Healed an earth behind some broken creature

Maybe she loves you and I'm just a preacher
Non-believers crying don't believe her
Don't believe her, no
Don't believe her, no

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

Give you my all and you're taking my everything

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

All that we are, that we need
All what we are, what we need

Bones Of Ribbon

Take my efforts high above red hues
Bones of ribbon don't stop me now
Whites went blue, then went yellow
Feet don't stop me now
They found me there in the sands
Bones of ribbon in my hands
Whites went blue, then went yellow
Pull off the cloak, time off the wall

Take determination
Take whatever you need
'Cause your body's made of metal
And your skin, it isn't real

Found me there in the sands
Bones of ribbon in my hands
Whites went blue, then went yellow
Please don't stop me now

Take determination
Take whatever you need
'Cause your body's made of metal
And your skin, it isn't real

They found me there in the sands
Bones of ribbon in my hand
Whites went blue, and then went yellow
And your feet don't stop me now
Feet don't stop me now

Well you know when you know, hey
Oh no, do you know it enough, hey
You won't know 'till you know it enough
You won't know 'till you know you know it enough
Feet don't stop me now
Feet don't stop me now

Who Am I

There is life in the dark
So small but there you are
Hand in hand, this life, you are
Something I can't understand
Endless thoughts, they get ahead
Blue against my better sense
I am trying my best
To fit in with the rest

Who am I
Who am I to want you now you're leaving
Who am I
Who am I, who am I to judge you now you're leaving

Who am I
Who am I
Who am I
Who am I

All my love in the dark
Be close but miles apart
And I am trying my best
To fit in with the rest

Who am I
Who am I
Who am I
Who am I

Who am I
Who am I to want you now you're leaving
Who am I
Who am I, who am I to judge you now you're leaving

Who am I
Who am I
Who am I
Who am I

Leave The War With Me

Fair game, go on and drop your head
Feathers gone and make you lose mine
Losing love all over again
But it's my way 'till the end of time
Let's tread when I drop my head
Fear going, let me lose mine
I'm losing love all over again
But it's my way 'till the end of time

And where do we go
And I'm leaning towards
Losing my mind with this feeling no more

Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me

Fair trials, they don't exist my friend
Only a circus in my mind
Judgement's gone and there's no love again
But it's my way 'till the end of time

Where do we go
And I'm leaning towards
Losing my mind and I'm feeling no more

Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me

Truth Is a Beautiful Thing

Miles and miles on my own
Walk with shame, I follow on
A language to find hard to hear
Not to understand, just disappear

To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here
I do not think you'd take this pain
You'll be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh, the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh, the truth is a beautiful thing

I wear another thought of you
There's so much home I give to you
Hide you somewhere they don't know
Deep in my call you know you have a throne

Hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here
I don't think you'll take this pain
You'll be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh the truth is a beautiful thing

What A Day

What a day
See you in the way
What a life
But you look at me that way

What a day
What a life
What a waste
What a lie

You still shot me, makes me wonder
Streetlights when I was younger
I heard you keep on running
I heard you keep on coming but
Here comes the rain and thunder
Here comes, it pulls you under

Different Breeds

There are so many different breeds, yeah
I just need to find one that fits
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came, yeah
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came
Send me in circles across the plains, yeah
One long line through America
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came, yeah
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came

Oh, you know I'm glad you came
Oh, understand it's a lonely game
Waiting on you but you're taking your time again
Oh, you know I'm glad you came

Guess I was born with the wrong tongue, yeah
In the wrong place and at the wrong time
Raised palms, raised faces at me
It's a not alarm just short circuit vanity
And I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came, yeah
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came

Oh, you know I'm glad you came
Oh, understand it's a lonely game
Waiting on you but you're taking your time again
Oh, you know I'm glad you came

Oh, you know I'm glad you came
Oh, understand it's a lonely game
Waiting on you but you're taking your time again
Oh, you know I'm glad you came

I'm glad you came
I'm glad you came

Control

And I guess that's control
Forgetting your name
And I guess that's control
Is knowing your place

Let's watch the earth fall apart
That beautiful decay
Bring your words and bring your art
All of these words we say

Let's put something magical
So special in a day
And I guess that's control
It is forgetting your name

I am not organic, no
I was hardwired this way
Perfect sound doesn't cut it, no
So don't ask me to change

Hard pride like mechanical
Together on an empty stage
Bring your life and bring your home
Your thoughts and all of your brain

Let's put something magical
So special in a day
And I guess that's control
It is forgetting your name

And I guess that's control...

Trials (Demo)

Behind it all there's ordinary life
And would you want me standing in the same light
I wasn't wary of trouble when it's under my skin
They never made me aware of all of those things
And they were your words so don't leave them on their own
You should stand by them, build them a throne
And if you want me, then have me maybe
I will build you the happiest home

When I'm with you I'm not alone
I still believe I might not be enough
Hey, yeah, hey, trials they make you what you are
But it goes against the grain
All of these things I've seen, you're not

And it is about the ordinary life
But would you want me standing in the same light
Well I wasn't wary of trouble when it's under my skin
They never made me aware of all of those things
And if you want me, so don't leave them on their own
You should stand by them, build them a throne
And if you want me, then have me maybe
I will build you the happiest home

When I'm with you I'm not alone
I still believe I might not be enough
Hey, yeah, hey, trials they make you what you are
Does it goes against the grain
All of these things I've seen, you're not

When I'm with you I'm not alone
I still believe that I might not be enough
Trails they make you what you are
And it goes against the grain
All of these things I've seen, you're not

May The Best (Church Mix)

I really hate the way you called for me
I hate the way your voice, it travels seas
So take the guard out of your stare for me
'Cause I don't see him standing there in front of me

Don't stop what you're doing, just love me
Come make it right
Don't stop these things in the deepest and the darkest night

May the best of you ring true
May the best of me be enough to keep you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you

I really love the way that you saw me
You picked me up and you carried me
She took the guard out of your stare for me
Kind hands make simple work, you see

Don't stop what you're doing and love me
Come make it right
Don't stop these things in the deepest and the darkest night

May the best of you ring true
May the best of me be enough to keep you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you

I'm already losing you
I'm already losing you
May the best of me be enough to keep you
May the best of you ring true
May the best of me be enough to keep you
May the best of you ring true
Or I'm already losing you

Bitter Sweet Symphony (Live)

(The Verve)

'Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony this life
Tryna make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die

Devil Inside

( Inxs Cover / Game of Thrones OST )

Here comes the woman
With the look in her eye
Raised on leather
With flesh on her mind
Words as weapons sharper than knives
Makes you wonder how the other half die
The other half die

The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside
The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside

Here come the man
With the look in his eye
Fed on nothing
But full of pride
And look at them go
Look at them kick
Makes you wonder how the other half live
The other half live
How the other half live


The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside
The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside

The devil inside, the devil inside
And every single one of us the devil inside
And every single, every single one of us
The devil inside, devil inside, the devil
Devil inside

Dreams

(Fleetwood Mac / Live)

Now here you go again, you say
You want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down

It's only right that you should play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had and what you lost
And what you had, and what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know

Now here I go again, I see a crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It's only me who wants to wrap around your dreams and
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell
Dreams of loneliness

Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had and what you lost
And what you had, what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You will know

Everywhere You Go

( Nightcall EP )

There's a new way
It's a hard way
Only for you'll say
Cause you're my baby

It's a new day
And a clean slate
Oh how our dream of it
Cause you're my baby

Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
ls everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go

You say it's me here
You say it's only you
The one that I love
You're all I dream of

Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
ls everywhere (You'll be everywhere)
I go (You'll be everywhere)
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And I can't stand it
Don't make me, don't make me try to be without it
Don't make me try to be without it
Don't make me try to be without it
You know that I hurt don't wanna try

You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go

Feelings

( Strong EP )

Living in hindsight, I fought along, she said
Like an old maid with troubles hanging in her head
You've been flying like a bird with no wings
But you stay afloat like a bubble without strings

People keep on taking the ground from your feet
You are the only one playing hide and seek
Forever you go on, you're stealing my ideas
And this old maid, she won't wipe away my tears

And when you go
You save my soul
Tell my boy
I love him so
And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so

With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling

And I will take over
What is the worst thing that could happen
You've been carving like a hand with no knife
Trying to mend old maid trouble and strife
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
People keep on taking the ground from your feet
You are the only one playing hide and seek
Forever you go on, you're stealing my ideas
And this old maid, she won't wipe away my tears

And when you go
You save my soul
Tell my boy
I love him so
And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so

And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so
And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so

With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling

Wicked Game

( Chris Isaac Cover / Live )

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
No I want to fall in love
No I want to fall in love
With you
With you

What a wicked game you played to make me feel this way
what a wicked thing to do to let me dream of you
what a wicked thing to say you never felt this way
what a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you

And I want to fall in love
No I want to fall in love
With you

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No I want to fall in love
No I want to fall in love
With you
With you
This girl is only gonna break your heart
Nobody loves no one

Wrecking Ball

(Miley Cyrus / Live Lounge)

We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain
We jumped, never asking why
We kissed, I fell under your spell
A love no one could deny

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was break me
Yeah, you wreck me

I put you high up in the sky
And now, you're not coming down
It slowly turned, you let me burn
And now, we're ashes on the ground

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was break me
Yeah you wreck me
Yeah you wreck me

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you in

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you in

Never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you in

Yeah, you wreck me
Yeah, you wreck me
