Wallis Bird is wild. Wallis Bird is unpredictable. And she is contradictory. The best way to sum-up an artist who combines so many different styles is with the person themselves - hence the reason for self-titling her new upcoming album.

A musical magpie whose mature, self-affirming songs display an unusual emotional breadth, Wallis defies categorization. The Irish artist has paid her dues, shredding her fingers and breaking string after string from the sheer force of playing on stages small and large across Europe, and throwing her entire soul into each performance with a level of energy that makes her an unassailable force of nature.

Wallis Bird cannot - and should not - be pigeonholed easily. Capable of the delicate, gossamer-thin ballads that her tiny 5ft2 frame would suggest, she can also summon up a whirlwind of passion and rage in the blink of an eye. Her performances can transition seamlessly from the defiant anthems that can motivate thousands of festival-goers into a rousing sing-a-long, to the most hushed and fragile ballads that can captivate an audience into a spellbound silence . Wherever you may find Wallis, she stands out as a contradictory, powerful presence, one that can unite audiences anywhere she plays.

"Wallis Bird" was written and recorded in three places that, while geographically separate, were all deliberately chosen to impose their unique atmospheres onto the songs. From the communist broadcasting station in Berlin of the former GDR where the government broadcast its propaganda until the Berlin wall came down; to an isolated ghost ridden cottage on a godforsaken cliff edge in Ireland during the worst snowstorms in thirty years; to her own flat in Brixton, South London against a backdrop of screaming sirens and looting as the London riots threatened to overrun the city. The result is a record that strives to makes sense of the chaos around us all.

A double Meteor Award winner in her native Ireland, Wallis Bird's new album is her third and follows her debut 'Spoons' and 2009's 'New Boots,' both of which saw her garner critical acclaim and tour with the likes of Billy Bragg, Gabrielle, The Feeling & Rodrigo y Gabriela. Bird has also played some of Europe's biggest festivals, with her recent appearance at Paris' Rock En Seine Festival prompting one of France's biggest daily papers, Le Monde, to hail her performance as one of the highlights of the festival alongside Arcade Fire. An exceptional guitarist, her unique playing style only adds to the intrigue of her performances. Following a childhood accident which permanently damaged her left hand, Bird learned to play her instrument flipped back to front, thus having to create her own bafflingly complex chord fingerings, much to the bewilderment of any musicians in the audience.
The new album 'Wallis Bird' marks another progression, a record deliberately self-titled to mark it out as the defining statement of her career so far. So the confident strut that opens the first single 'Encore' nestles alongside the astonishing vitriol of 'Who's Listening Now', the folky pledge of 'In Dictum' and the almost carefree 'Heartbeating City' – all disparate musical elements that go towards creating the whole that is Wallis Bird as a songwriter. The intimacy of the recordings captures the sound and smell of an acoustic guitar being pushed to its physical limits, the sense of a packed-out local bar being conducted in time and in thrall to the energetic, captivating presence who marshals every element.

This is Wallis Bird, an unpredictable artist who chooses her own path and beckons us to follow.

Counting to Sleep

Counting one, two, three, four
Consequence can bear resemblance
To a swinging door
The way I'm acting is ridiculous
Like a dog in heat
Following and sniffing your tail
What is wrong with me
I know, I know

'Cause you're a delicate feather that swings in the air
It's a vision I carousel, sorry if I stare
And I have to be careful, you're a bubble in my hand
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So we stole a car for some release
But we didn't get far, 'cause I couldn't drive
And I made up words for some release
'Cause all we could say was gibberish slurs
And I distanced myself for some release
Then developed my love for you
When I couldn't sleep
When I couldn't sleep
When I couldn't sleep, oh no no

Counting one, two, three, four
The times I couldn't breathe when I kissed you
Wanting more and more
I never felt this way before
Really something new
Or really something deliciously dangerous
And it's only you
But you're wild, you're wild

And you're a delicate feather that swings in the air
It's a vision I carousel, sorry if I stare
I have to be careful, you're a bubble in my hand

So we stole a car for some release
But we didn't get far, 'cause I couldn't drive
And I made up words for some release
'Cause all we could say was gibberish slurs
And I distanced myself for some release
Then developed my love for you
When I couldn't sleep
When I couldn't sleep
When I couldn't sleep

When I couldn't sleep at night
When I couldn't sleep at night
When I couldn't sleep at night
When I couldn't sleep at night
When I couldn't sleep at night
When I couldn't sleep at night
When I couldn't sleep at night
When I, when I, when I, when I

6 Ft 8

Feels like I'm sleeping in someone else's bed
'Cause I'm troubled today, but not for long
So let's pack our bags and let's go to the desert
And I'll bring my heart before it's gone gone gone, yeah

Well I'm six foot eight and you make me smile
Will you kiss my neck, just for a little while
You're taking pictures and they're green and red, yeah
But if we get caught we're almost definitely dead
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh and you crossed that bridge of my indecision
You took some hits and it wasn't fair
But I'd follow you anywhere
And there's something to be said and it's

Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah

Well it's birthday morning and my head is sore
This drinking business doesn't make you appear
But I'll keep on trying till my pen runs dry, yeah
'Cause you are the best and you don't even have to try

Oh 'cause you crossed that bridge of my indecision
You took some hits and it wasn't fair
But I'd follow you anywhere
And there's something to be said and it's

Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Yeah

Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Could I love you
Yeah yeah yeah

Slow Down

Once there was a small girl who sang about her life
She didn't have much going on but she sang with all her might
Then one day there came a lover that kissed her right on her heart
That's when it happened, her life began to start
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
She found herself some music and things would slowly change
Am I ignoring now the things I can't arrange
Then one day that same lover made her heart stop
I guess there's only one lover can kiss you right on that spot

Slow down the evening's just begun
As we dance under the setting sun
In the daylight we never have much fun
So let's dance and celebrate the morning sun

"Once there were decisions and minutes that made
And I'm caught in the middle, I'm empty as a wave
Everyone is leaving and soon there will be just me
And if I have this freedom it doesn't mean I'm free"
She said

Slow down the evening's just begun
As we dance under the setting sun
In the daylight we never have much fun
So let's dance and celebrate the morning sun

Slow down the evening's just begun
As we dance under the setting sun
In the daylight we never have much fun
So let's dance

The Circle

Close your eyes I see a tear coming
Now look away so I can kiss your face
There's a light shining from your room
I wanna follow it so I can tell you I

We bought melons and clothes
And paraded our chance to change
Just one moment in history
When everyone knew our name

And I was sitting between dance or fuck
I couldn't have felt a better rainfall
And I was caught in every bubble
Every beer I gulped
Every night I didn't read no books
And laid my weight upon the stage

Close your eyes I see a tear coming
Now look away so I can kiss your face
There's a light shining from your room
I wanna follow it so I can tell you I

So we picked up the pen
And decided to make noise
What is the title of your brilliance
I hope your writing never ends
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I was sitting between dance or fuck
I couldn't have felt a better rainfall
And I was caught in every bubble
Every beer I gulped
Every night I didn't read no books
And laid my weight upon the stage

Close your eyes I see a tear coming
Now look away so I can kiss your face
There's a light shining from your room
I wanna follow it so I can tell you I

Close your eyes I see a tear coming
Now look away so I can kiss your face
There's a light shining from your room
I wanna follow it so I can tell you I

Love your Smile
I love your smile

Blossoms In The Street

It was a brief mad affair
A place where men don't dare
But man has no place for me here
In the distance there was fun
In front of me there was none
And reservation stared me in the eye

Silently volatile
You broke me down on trial
And asked me if I changed my life
No thanks, not tonight
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh, oh, oh, blossoms in the street
Nearly, lost in pleasantries
Nearly, pushed me off my feet
There is, someone who believes in me
Someone who believes in me

So I put my guns away
I shaved my legs today
And hope someone may want to touch my skin
So don't bother to be coy
All it does is annoy
Is this where we start, is this where we begin

Silently volatile
You broke me down on trial, yeah
And asked me if I changed my life
Oh well, no thanks, not tonight

Oh, oh, oh, blossoms in the street
Nearly, lost in pleasantries
Nearly, pushed me off my feet
There is someone who believes in

Blossoms in the street
Nearly, lost in pleasantries
Nearly, pushed me off my feet
There is someone who believes in

Blossoms in the street
Nearly, lost in pleasantries
Nearly, pushed me off my feet
There is, someone who believes in me
Someone who believes in me
Someone who believes in me

You Are Mine

You wore your clothes in bed
And the stars came out for miles
Sweet and soft and heavy as lead
You roped your arms around me
And you smiled

Well all the strength in the world
Couldn't hold my tears that night
I held onto you 'cause you were going away
And you just lay there
You didn't even realize
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Well my love, I love you
Goodbye, so long, farewell
For a while goodbye
And when you come back
Will you look for me
I'm serious
For I love you
And you are mine

Well I've never felt like this
I'm confused and out of style
Well I fall out with friends
But they stay true
They misguidedly tell me
All I do is you

But you've never let me know
Should you ever love me less
Oh I hold onto you and you won't go anywhere
And I just constantly tell you, you're the best

Well my love, I love you
Goodbye, so long, farewell
For a while goodbye
And when you come back
Will you look for me
I'm serious
For I love you
And you, you

My love, I love you
Goodbye, so long, farewell
For a while goodbye
And when you come back
Will you marry me
I'm serious
For I love you
And you are mine

Moodsets

I give up
You've got your own place now
Ain't that the fact
The trail of tears you're leaving behind

I get drunk
I lie awake in bed
And I can't relax
Reeling over things that you've said

And now it's that time
When I can sit back
And I won't even try
Following I'm leaving you behind
And now it's that time
When I can't sit back
'Cause I won't be denied

My brain can't tell me what to do, do, do
So I call your house
I've been fiddling with single for too long now
I fantasize I only dream, dream, dream
Of your lying flat
And I've been harbouring this weather for two songs now, now
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And that's it
You've got your own day now
How convenient
Nobody's calling your name

To begin
I always wanted you
And well you knew
But I was too shy to complain

But now it's that time, when I can sit back
And I won't even try following I'm leaving you behind
And that time, when I can't sit back
And I won't be denied, yeah, no no, no no

My brain can't tell me what to do, do, do
So I call your house
I've been fiddling with single for too long now
I fantasize I only dream, dream, dream
Of your lying flat
And I've been harbouring this weather for two songs now, now

So, so, so, don't try to tell me what to do, do, do
So I call your house
And I've been fiddling with single for too long now
So don't you try to tell me what to do, do, do
So I call your house
And I've been harbouring this weather for two songs now, now

Promise that you'll call me when the mood sets
Promise I'll hold my breath, my breath
Only 'cause you know me as that word sex
Only to be with you

Promise that you'll call me when the mood sets
Promise I'll hold my breath, my breath
Only 'cause you know me as that word sex
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

My brain, my brain, my brain, my brain, my brain
My brain can't tell me what to do, yeah
So don't you try to tell me, no don't you try to tell me
What to do, what to do, no no

My brain can't tell me what to do, do, do
So I call your house
I've been fiddling with single for too long now
Don't try to tell me what to do, do, do
So I call your house
And I've been harbouring this weather
For two songs now, now, now, now

Country Bumpkin

Got no place for country, got no place else to hide
Everyone around me is acting physically blind
Easy on that make-up, I can almost see your eyes
Is everyone around me here stupid or

Drawn to the light, the sun has come to show
Shadows that color the beautiful snow
All around me settles and here we go, what you know
We're coming down the mountain, come on let's go, let's go go go

Got no place for country, got no way to stand out
And when did people start to think that orange looks like brown
Easy on that lying streak, you're making me laugh out loud
Is everyone around me here stupid or
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Drawn to the light, the sun has come to show
Shadows that color the beautiful snow
All around me settles and here we go, what you know
We're coming down the mountain, come on let's go, let's go

I got a place in the country, I got no place for the town
I'm never gonna change until you put me in that ground
When you gonna wake up girl, you're looking like a clown
And gravity will hit you just like everyone

Drawn to the light, the sun has come to show
Shadows that color the beautiful snow
All around me settles and here we go, what you know
We're coming down the mountain, come on let's go, let's go

Drawn to the light

Just Keep Going

Months pass by and I'm still the same
Can't stop saying your name
Pictures show I look so washed out
I haven't slept right for days

And I was crying "please don't be in love"
(Unless you love me back)
Put on my shoes and go for a walk
But I can't escape my own thoughts

So I just keep going
Just keep going

And there's the turn
I'm so weak
I look in your eyes and die
And there's the turn
I'm so bruised
I can't tell you 'cause I'll lose, I'll lose

So I just keep going
Just keep going
No distance showing
Just keep it

Just keep going
Just keep going
No distance showing
Just keep it

Just keep going
Just keep going
No distance showing

Songs write by and I'm still the same
I can't shake this fucking thing
I'll smile at you but I won't show my teeth
You'll only see half of me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
'Cause when I slept in someone elses arms
I knew, I knew the truth
Kept leaning over to kiss their mouth
But I kept expecting you

So I just keep going
And I just keep going
Just keep going
Just keep going

And I just keep going
And I just keep going
And I just keep going
And I just keep going

And I just keep going
And I just keep going
And I just keep going
And I just keep going

Just keep going
No distance showing
Just keep it

Just keep going
Just keep going
No distance showing
Just keep it

Just keep going
Just keep going
No distance showing
Just keep it

Just keep going
Just keep going
No distance showing

All For You

I'm losing old tricks
And buying new ones
A flicker and a smile
And a pocket full of posies

Reality swells
With my love
I push the bed against the wall
And say this is enough

And I'll await
The longest wait
Until you're back
Into my loving arms
My loving arms

And when you're away
I'll sing our songs
Most everyday
All because

When I'm with you
I have magic
And I'm all for you

Catch a tear
They're falling fast
But as our time is running out
I know we will last ‘cause
You've got that thing
Where you bring down the walls
Every time you look at me
Oh can't you see how I fall
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I'll await
The longest wait
Until you're back
Into my loving arms
My loving arms, yeah

And when you're away
I'll sing our songs
Most everyday
All because

When I'm with you
I have magic
And I'm all for you

And say you love me
And say you want me
Never leave me
Because you love me

Bring Me Wine

I wish I had no feelings like you
I'd call everyone in the black book
Call 'em up just like you do
You got me fucked up
Hanging around, following your steps

I see lights inside
But I see no movements in your mind
I see movements in your mind
And I know that I'm unkind
But I try to get a reaction out of you

But baby
This ain't no beer
This ain't no thing I can pay for and leave
And strangely this ain't no year
This ain't gonna make me fly out of here
Oh yeah

I looked across the road
Because I thought I saw a ghost
But it was you
Try to talk the troubles away
But we could be talking all fucking day
They're gonna stay

Oh baby
This ain't no beer
This ain't no thing I can pay for and leave, hey yeah yeah
And strangely this ain't no beer
This ain't gonna make me fly out of here, oh, oh
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Bring me wine, yeah
Come on, bring me wine, bring me wine
Bring me every day a fine
I ain't feeling no fear
So get me out of here
Bring me bring me wine

I paint pictures around my heart
That's all I got to say
I paint pictures around you every day
And play trumpet in my ear
To wake me up so I won't hear
You're bragging about how we don't do it anymore

I'm singing about my life
About the one I thought could be my life
I believed that everything goes smoothly, yeah
But if you only hold your tongue
You'll see that you could be someone
Just like me
Just like me
Just like me

Oh, come on, come on
Bring me wine, bring me wine
Bring me everyday a fine
I ain't, I ain't feeling no fear, feeling no fear
So get me out of here
Bring me bring me wine
Come on

Come on bring me wine
Come on bring me wine
Come on bring me wine
Come on, yeah

I ain't feeling no fear
So get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of
Get me out of here

What is wrong with this scene
Do you know what I mean
I ain't a slave to a system
That only talks but don't listen

This ain't no place to grow
This ain't no state of mind for your kids to learn

Meal of Convenience

As I walked down my road
I was greeted by strangers
They were laughing so hard
They exploded streams of colours from their mouths
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
This is a meal of convenience
This is a meal my mother made
This is a meal of convenience
This is a meal my mother made

Well I walked that road
Like I walked my life in front of me
And I wore the same damn clothes for three days
I didn't want to wash the feeling off of me

This is a meal of convenience
This is a meal my mother made
This is a meal of convenience
This is a meal my mother made

This is a meal of convenience
This is a meal my mother made
This is a meal of convenience
This is a meal my mother made
This is a meal my mother made

Made of Sugar

Blood on my fingers
Blood in my chest
You anticipate me
Wipe my fear in my vest
I am a sugar girl
Made of sugar am I
And so is my affliction
That I'm so afraid to cry

Strengthen up
And come home to me
Music melt me
Join my sky to my sea

I sail the distance
And now I've said it
I sail to me

I sail the distance
And now I've said it
I sail to me

I cut my hair today
And stepping from the choice
Thinking of you my love
Will you know where I am
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Stand up now
And come home to me
Music melt me
Join my sky to my sea
Join my sky to my sea

I sail the distance
And now I've said it
I sail to me

I sail the distance
And now I've said it
I sail to me

An Idea About Mary

A sailor, a sailor did drown my heart
'Cause of your thunderous wave goodbye
And I never saw you sleeping in your matching shoes
So a part of me still thinks you're alive

And if my mum is feeling better
We'll take some sandwiches for the road
And we'll drive into the lights on the way home
And my dad talks about the weather
And says "the arse is falling out of the sky"
The day that Mary dies
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh lover I've got plenty
So why do I feel like
I've got nothing

Oh lover I'm so empty
Who am I now
Tell me who I'm gonna be
Or just give me back me

My saviour is braver than I can be
Taking all the weapons out of my mind
And I sing for my supper but I sing for me
So a part of me is aching to survive

And if my mum is feeling better
We'll take some sandwiches for the road
And we'll drive into the lights on the way home
And my dad talks about the weather
And says "the arse is falling out of the sky"
The day that Mary died

Oh lover I've got plenty
So why do I feel like
I've got nothing

Oh lover I'm so empty
So who am I now

Oh lover I've got plenty
So why do I feel like
I need something else
So give me something else
Or just give me back me

Someone put a shape on me
Someone put a shape on me
Someone put a shape on me

Oh lover I've got plenty
So why do I feel like
I've got nothing

Oh lover I'm so empty
So who am I now
Who am I

Oh lover I've got plenty
So why do I feel like
I need something else
So give me something else
If I need something else
Then give me back me

When We Kissed The World Fell In Love

Hands down
It gets cheesy
But this is for you
I'm not teasing
You make me whole

Yeah people, get excited
When they're around you
You just unbutton their souls

So pucker up
I'm going in
I want to kiss that gorgeous grin, oh

Everything starts moving
I see colours
I see sparks

When we kissed, the world fell in love
When we kissed, the world fell in love
'Cause I love you
I love you

When we kissed, the world fell in love
When we kissed, the world fell in love
'Cause I love you
I love you

Hands down
You're allergic
An epidemic
I had to fight people off
But it's good, it's exciting
But terrifying, how I can touch what I feel
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So pucker up
I'm going in
I want to kiss that gorgeous grin, oh
Oh yeah

Yeah, everything starts moving
I see colours
I see sparks

When we kissed, the world fell in love
When we kissed, the world fell in love
'Cause I love you
I love you

When we kissed, the world fell in love
When we kissed, the world fell in love
'Cause I love you, yeah
I love you

Oh yeah
Because your love is
Oh yeah, oh yeah...

La La Land

I must be looking for a change
A different point of view
And if you'd only stop crying, crying, crying, crying
I could start respecting you

I must be looking for a revelation
Get us in the mood
I cut my fingers from trying, trying, trying, trying
Always starting something new

I got some people to see
They're educating my brain
They say I'm living in la la land

And when I've paved my way
My conscience sneak in the door
I got my horses in la la land

Whatever weather that comes
Whatever happens to me
I got a needle in la la land

I'm gonna pave my way
And get my foot in the door
I've got my horses in la la land
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
Oh, oh

I shoulda, woulda, coulda came
Instead of sitting in my room
Instead of multiplying same same fuck up game
Scared of winning, scared to lose

I must be looking for a companion
It doesn't matter who
As long as everyone is living in, living in sin
As long as I can play with you

I got some people to see
They're educating my brain
They say I'm living in la la land

And when I've paved my way
My conscience sneak in the door
I got my horses in la la land

Whatever weather that comes
Whatever happens to me
I got a needle in la la land

I'm gonna pave my way
And get my foot in the door
I've got my horses in la la land

In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land

Way down the sea
Way down on me

I got some people to see
They're educating my brain
They say I'm living in la la land

And when I've paved my way
My conscience sneak in the door
I got my horses in la la land

Whatever weather that comes
Whatever happens to me
I got a needle in la la land

I'm gonna pave my way
And get my foot in the door
I've got some people in la la land

In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land

In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land, in la la land
In la la land, in la la land

Measuring Cities

Do you remember Mannheim in September
We were in love, we didn't know it
Do you remember sleeping like a glove
We finally kissed, the world exploded
Our pockets were lined with each other
We knew every last drop of our souls
But you were worried, I wanted someone from old

My heart is married to somebody else
My soul is married to somebody else
My lips are married to somebody else
My love is married to only you

Do you remember Paris in October
We were in love, we were ecstatic
Do you remember feeling growing old
We'd changed the World, the World had changed us
Our pockets were lined with each other
We knew every last drop of our souls
I was never untrue when the cat was away
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Is my heart is married to somebody else
My heart is married to somebody else
My lips are married to somebody else
My love is married to only you

Do you remember Brixton in July
You were unsure, I didn't know it
You couldn't even look me in the eye
I felt the World crashing around me
I went home to family, meek
You changed your clothes and your hair in one week
I don't think I'll be moving on any time soon

Is my heart is married to somebody else
My heart is married to somebody else
My lips are married to somebody else
My love is married to somebody else
Yeah my skin is married to somebody else
My words are married to somebody else
Yeah my soul is married to somebody else
Yeah my soul is married to only you

Your Morning Dream

Come here
Bring your body to me
Let's make light
I feel the purities within me
Take flight
When I look at you lying there beside me
It's so nice

Well sunflowers need water
Just like these walls need to talk
And I think if we stay in this bed any longer
We might just forget how to walk

'Cause I've got you forever
And forever and a day
I can feel it, I feel it, I feel it
Come on, come on, come on

I feel it the bubbles in my skin
Oh love can make a woman or a man
I see it the bubbles in my skin
Oh love can make a woman or a man
Oh love can make a woman or a man
Oh love can make a woman or a man
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Curl up
I'll hold you like a baby
Kiss you low
When I hold you
Baby I will hold you
Closer than your skin
And when we kiss
I wanna kiss you out of the ceiling
Up into the sky, into your soul

Well sunflowers need water
Just like these walls need to talk
And I think if we stay in this bed any longer
We might just forget how to walk

'Cause I've got you forever
And forever and a day
I can feel it, I feel it, I feel it
Come on, come on, come on

I feel it the bubbles in my skin
Oh love can make a woman or a man
I see it the bubbles in my skin
Oh love can make a woman or a man
Oh love can make a woman or a man
Oh love can make a woman or a man
Oh love, oh love
Oh love, oh love
Oh love, oh love
Oh love can make a woman or a man

I see it
Your love is so strong
I can taste it
Your love is so there
I can feel it
Your love, your love

Encore

You could be running hide from something
But you know you never get far
You could be running from yourself
You could be running to the next bar

You could be closer to the finish
Then you ever were before the start
But stop running, stop running
Begin where you are

Carry all the pain that keeps you burning
Carry it away from your heart
Carry it to me and I will take it
Take it apart, break it apart

Every little thing that comes between us
Doesn't really matter anymore
So stop running, stop running
Begin where you are

Come back, oh come back, oh come back
Oh come, oh come, oh come come back
Oh come back, oh come back, oh come, oh come

Trouble is a lover and I got to have it
Travel is forever at my feet
Come a little closer so that I can grab it
Give it to me, give it to me

Oh every little sin that could divide us
Doesn't really matter 'cause I just don't care
So stop running, stop running
Come in somewhere

Come back, oh come back, oh come back
Oh come, oh come, oh come come back
Oh come back, oh come back, oh come
Oh C-c-c-c-come back

Take me home

I've got a head at rest
It lies on your breast
And you've got a choke hold
In a life of less interest

Always a girl for love
Born on a Tuesday
A cold in your heart
A cold in my brain

Take my hand
This whole world's gone mad
And I'm trying to salvage an existence
Where we'll live in love

Jump with me
We may be smashed to the ground
But in between we'll fly
We'll soar, we'll soar
Like the bird I am

Pasted a fake smile
All across their face
You're running out your cold heart
And never getting pace
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And can you feel me loving you
I can hear you loving me
There's something in your heart
Makes you wanna scream

Take my hand
This whole world's gone mad
And I'm trying to salvage an existence
Where we'll live in love

Oh jump with me
We may smash to the ground
But in between we'll fly
We'll soar, we'll soar

I'm almost there
I'm almost there, I
I'm almost there, I
I'm almost there, woah

I'm almost there, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm almost there, whoa
I'm almost there, woah
I'm almost there, ha, ha

I'm almost there
I'm almost there, hey
I'm almost there, ah
I'm almost there, oh

In Dictum

Well I'll tell you the truth
As I only do, my friend
I'll be living my youth
As I live till my end, my friend

I've been battered and bruised
But it's only a few
That have stayed or left
And that's nothing a hammer
A nail or my mind couldn't cure
But I've left people hang
On a stick or a word
If their grip grew tight
All the bottles, the battles
The beds that I've shared they're all mine

But the more you hold on to me
The less you can have of me
The more you hold on to me
The less I am yours to keep
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Well I'll tell you the truth
If that's what you want, my friend
Sometimes being a friend
Is not saying a word, my friend

I've been shattered and shoved
And I shattered and shoved
But my mind is clear
And I've chosen my women, my men
And I've chosen my fears
But I've loved you with the marrow
That fills up my bones and I always will
If you're with me or not
All depends if you hold me too near

But the more you hold on to me
The less you can have of me
The more you hold on to me
The less I am yours to keep

The more you hold on to me
The less you can have of me
The more you hold on to me, yeah
The less I am yours or me

There are devils inside
That I am not afraid to meet
There are devils outside
But I am not ashamed to be

But the more you hold on to me
Yeah the more you hold on to me
I'll try not to leave

Ghosts Of Memories

Moonlight falling
Sunlight's lifting
The light, the life in me

Sometimes screaming
Keeps me breathing
Alive, alive and free

Only ghosts of memories
Warm the coldest nights
The crooked light that holds the night
Won't hold me tonight

Feel the beating
Of my heart and
It's running like I'm on my way
I'm coming, I'm almost there

Feel the temper, oh it's rising
Like an ocean gonna float away
I'm coming, I'm not afraid
Oh, I'm not afraid
I'm not, I'm not afraid
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Someone's watching
Always with me
To guide or frighten me
I close my eyes, open, nothing
But I am not afraid

Only ghosts of memories
Warm the coldest nights
The crooked light that holds the night
Won't hold me tonight

Feel the beating
Of my heart and
It's running like I'm on my way
I'm coming, I'm almost there

Feel the temper, it's rising
Like an ocean gonna float away
I'm coming, I'm not afraid

Yeah, feel the beating
Of my heart and
It's running like I'm on my way
I'm coming, I'm not afraid

Feel the temper
Oh it's rising
Like an ocean gonna float away
I'm coming, I'm coming, I'm coming
I'm coming now

But I'm Still Here, I'm Still Here

I sing songs about loving my life
But today I just don't have the energy
I've thinking about leaving this life
'Cause these bruises inside, don't feel real to me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
How intriguing the dullness
That swallows your soul
To the strength of a wet paper bag
How deceiving the notion
I cannot control my own life
So I'm choosing my death

But I'm still here, I'm still here
I'm still here, I'm still here
I'm still here, I'm still here
I'm still here, I'm still here

I've got numbers for friends I don't like
And I've got numbers on most of my enemies
I've got one thing to say before I'm drunk again
Oh, it burns, oh it hurts and it burns

How intriguing the dullness
That swallows your soul
To the strength of a wet paper bag
How deceiving the notion
I cannot control my own life
So I'm choosing my death

But I'm still here, I'm still here
I'm still here, I'm still here
I'm still here, I'm still here
I'm still here, I'm still here...

Feathered Pocket

Oh love is heavy persuasion
Through gentle suggestion
It soaks through your skin
Yes it comes from within
So you can't hide it from anyone

And the clouds ain't so high anymore
Since my head and my heels left the floor
Oh I watch you, I watch you
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Pick up a little feather
And put it in your pocket
Give me a little kiss on my lips

Pick up a little feather
And put it in your pocket
Give me a little kiss on my lips
And I will see you later

Oh loving candles I'm guessing they're
Burning ten thousand leaks deep in your core
Yeah the joy of it all
Is that you just can't bury it all
And it's the elemental things for me

And the clouds ain't so high anymore
Since my head and my heels left the floor
Oh I watch you, I watch you

Pick up a little feather
And put it in your pocket
Give me a little kiss on my lips

Pick up a little feather
And put it in your pocket
Give me a little kiss on my lips
Give me a little little kiss
Give me a little kiss on my lips
And I will see you later

Polarised

You were the swan
And still beautiful
Even when
You opened your beak to speak
Where are you now
Flying away

You once told me
When stood on a bridge
Swans stay together
Forever and ever
And I cheesily said
We'd be birds of a feather
'Cause you once said
You'd take my name

But now
I'm polarised
Yet our magnets
Are polarised

The sound of your wings
Beating in flight
The sound of my heart
Pounding my chest with so
But I wished I was
Wished I was
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I don't wanna touch anyone
Don't want to kiss, don't want to hug
Don't wanna speak, don't want to love
Don't wanna sleep, I wanna wake up
With you

And our magnets
Are polarised
And our magnets
Are polarised
Yeah, our magnets
Are polarised

I can be your Man

The law of love
Can have its fractions
But it's beauty cannot be denied
Now I understand
It's complicated but it's easy
If easily defined

I can be your man
I can be your woman
I can be your man
I can be your man
Copy paste is killing the internet
I cannot lie
I, I, I don't want secrets
If affection is something to hide
Oh no more crazy war
On feelings that can't be described

I can be your man
I can be your woman
I can be your man
I can be your woman

Break

Love is not a crime
Only the rules that you seem to find
'Cause any good, any hope
In this world comes from love

And that makes me be a man
That makes me be a woman
That makes me be a man
That makes me be a woman

Daze

Hold it down
Seems it's all I ever do
Chasing time
I've given all of it to you

And now I'm hanging on a leash you're holding
I never wanted unrequited love
And if you hold it tight
I might be gone tonight

The, the daze, the daze
The days keep rolling away like my brain
I'm not the same
Now I'm all about you
Everytime I think I know I'm thinking about you

The daze, the daze
The days keep rolling away like my brain
I'm not the same
Now I'm all about you
Everytime I think I know I'm thinking about you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hold my mouth
'Cause I'm scared of what I'll say
Your deepest eyes, eyes
They're giving nothing away

I never wanted unrequited
Love so long, so long now
I'm holding on the leash
Loose around your wrist
'Cause it was holding me back

But it's just me, it's just me
I've only got myself to blame
Right now, for going, for coming
For even believing you felt the same

The daze, the daze
The days keep rolling away like my brain
I'm not the same
Now I'm all about you
Everytime I think I know I'm thinking about you

I'm in the daze, the daze
The days keep rolling away like my brain
I'm not the same
Now I'm all about you
Everytime I think I know I'm thinking about you

The daze, oh the daze
The days keep rolling away like my brain
I'm not the same
Now I'm all about you
Everytime I think I know I'm thinking about you
I'm thinking about you

The daze, the daze, the daze, the daze, the da-da-daze
Everytime I think I know I'm thinking about you
Everytime I think I'm gonna need to leave town

Holding a Light

Holding a light
Where I once could find you
Only time will tell if I am in love
Or in lost

Following denial
'Cause is easy to hide through
Only time will tell how I am enough
Or not at all

Maybe what's right
Isn't all we thought
It would be
And maybe what's wrong
Is nothing at all
Who can decide
(who can)

Measuring desire as a gift
Only time will tell if I am in love
Or not at all
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Maybe what's wrong
Isn't all we need it to be
And maybe what's right
Is everything

Who can decide
Who
(You or me or you or me)
You or me
You or me

To give our love away
Is to know what our love is anyway

To give our love away
Is to know what a love is anyway

The Cards

I lifted my head
Right against the sun
And the cold air
The spring had just begun

I was losing old love
Right upon the chair
You were sitting on
May I please touch your hair
Copy paste is killing the internet
What a physical feeling
Following the lead of a difficult yearning
To give and then to bleed
(To give, and bleed)

"Watch the heart
Be true to yourself"
Those were the cards
The cards that I was dealt

Look in the mirror
And out of yourself
Those were the cards
The cards that I was dealt

And I don't think I've cried
Not once since I arrived
And I should think I need to
But now I can't decide

Retarce myself
In somebody else
You are you, I am me
We are yound and we are partially free

Give bleed and lead
And lead and take me to your home tonight

But "Watch the heart
Be true to yourself"
Those were the cards
The cards that I was dealt

Look in the mirror
And out of yourself
Those were the cards
The cards that I was dealt

Girls

Lay your head
On me for
Comfort or
Distress

Nevermind
Where it rests
I am yours
From now

Oh I'm here
Oh I'm living out a dream, dream
Oh be clear, lend me all of you
Now it's clear, yeah
We're not sneaking if they join us
We're alone just me and you and you
And you and you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
An open mouth is a door
An open mind is more
So anywords need not be
The secret language is between you and me

Oh I'm here
Oh I'm living out a dream, dream
Oh be clear, lend me all of you
Now it's clear
We're not sneaking if they join us
We're alone just me and you and you and you
And you and you and you

Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on

Communion

No holding back
Everything you're doing is enough to keep
You're pumping life
Living like you're nothing but release
Release, release

You see, I was moving
With the chemical reaction of a stone at least
And you moved me like liquid
Like a hammer to the knees
Copy paste is killing the internet
But what about now when I'm feeling sober
I must admit it
I only do it for you

Never before have I felt so bold I
I wanna sing it
I wanna offer it to

Communion
You're the muse
To me
You're the operator
Communion
You're the muse

No laughing now
As I'm trying to be serious
And I know it's weak

But I might be dead tomorrow
And I'd be raging if I didn't speak
Speak, speak

Every book, every painting
Every dance, every song
Is a footprint
And we're always moving on

And if everyone's a critic
Then no one can never be wrong
No, no, yes

Communion
You're the muse
To me
You're the operator

Communion
You're the muse
To me
You're the operator

Communion
You're the muse
To me
You're the operator

Communion
You're the muse

Gloria

If you're gonna leave me honey
Then I suggest you pack up and go
If you don't believe me honey
I'd rather be with a stranger
Than someone I don't know any more

'Cause it's a fine line between love and hate
And it's a fine time to call it a day
We gave it a good run
And now I just don't have any words for you
I just wanna dance

Give me the beat
The rhythm and the body and mind
I want to see forever in a paradigm
Where a perpetual rhythm's a perpetual reminder
That's the last time
I'll ever see you behind

I'm in the beat
The rhythm and the body and mind
I want to see forever in a paradigm
I want to break free
From these breaking times
I want to get together with my body and mind

So what you're gonna please yourself
I only know it 'cause it's what you've always done in the past
So I was predicting this
The only difference was I couldn't make it fast fast fast enough

So I'll just run away
And dance all night
Dance what I want to say
Close my eyes and lose myself
And deal another day with
Copy paste is killing the internet
Oh the dreams, the memories
Oh hold me in the caverns of the mind
Oh dreams, oh memories
Oh hold me down
Confuse and paralyse
What I am feeling now
Is such loneliness for you
You're not alone

I'm in the beat
The rhythm and the body and mind
I want to see forever in a paradigm
I want to break free
From these breaking times
I want to get together with my body and mind

I'm in the beat
The rhythm and the body and mind
I want to see forever in a paradigm
I want to break free
From these breaking times
I want to get together with my body and mind
I want to get together with my body and mind

Hammering

Hammering my feet
Down, down, down, down, down
Hammering this land
I find my feet in
Having to believe this feeling's meaning

Hammering the pain
Down, down, down, down, down
Hammering the shame
I know I'm grieving
Harbouring regret
For what I'm stealing

But I must draw the line
In chalk I draw the line
Evolve into the line
Copy paste is killing the internet
The heart is just a pump
Pound, pound, pound, pound, pound
The heart is just a muscle that is breathing
The heart is just a muscle I am teaching

Temporary truth
Found, found, found, found, found
Temporary youth I love misleading
Tampering with good hearts is not healing

So I must draw the line
Evolve into the line
In chalk I draw the line

So I draw the line
Evolve into the line
In chalk I draw the line

Hammering, hammering, hammering
Hammering, hammering, hammering...

River of Paper

Oh but I could swim
In the seas of your intelligence
In the body that you are floating in
In the river of your voice
Is a song that's bleeding charity
In an ocean of you I dive in
Copy paste is killing the internet
Love you are a book
Of parables and poetry
With the last few pages kept from print
To excite and to surprise
To allow me to read everything
But there're still some things you've kept from ink

Little Plastic Castle

( Ani Difranco )

In a coffee shop in a city
Which is every coffee shop in every city
On a day which is every day

I picked up a magazine
Which is every magazine
Read a story, and then forgot it right away

As you wThey say goldfish have no memory
I guess their lives are much like mine
And the little plastic castle
Is a surprise every time
And it's hard to say if they're happy
But they don't seem much to mind

From the shape of your shaved head
I recognized your silhouette
alked out of the sun and sat down
And the sight of your sleepy smile
Eclipsed all the other people
As they paused to sneer at the two girls from out of town
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I said, look at you this morning
You are, by far, the cutest
But be careful getting coffee
I think these people wanna shoot us
Or maybe there's some kinda local competition here
To see who can be the rudest

People talk
About my image
Like I come in two dimensions
Like lipstick is a sign of my declining mind
Like what I happen to be wearing
The day that someone takes a picture
Is my new statement for all of womankind

And I wish they could see us now
In leather bras and rubber shorts
Like some ridiculous new team uniform
For some ridiculous new sport
Quick someone call the girl police
And file a report

In a coffee shop in a city
Which is every coffee shop in every city
On a day which is every day

Peaches

( The Stranglers )

Strolling along minding my own business
Well there goes a girl and a half
She's got me going up and down
She's got me going up and down

Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches
Well I got the notion girl that you got some suntan lotion in that bottle of yours
Spread it all over my peelin' skin baby
That feels real good
All this skirt lappin' up the sun
Lap me up
Why don't you come on and lap me up

Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches
Well there goes another one just lying down on the sand dunes
I'd better go take a swim and see if I can cool down a little bit
'Cause you and me woman
We got a lotta things on our minds

Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches
Will you just take a look over there
Is she trying to get outta that clitares
Liberation for women that's what I preach
Preacher man
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Walking on the beaches looking at the peaches
Oh shit, there goes the charabang
Looks like I'm gonna be stuck here the whole summer
Well what a bummer
I can think of a lot worse places to be
Like down in the streets
Or down in the sewer
Or even on the end of a skewer

Just looking at the peaches
Down on the beaches
Just looking at the bodies
Down on the beaches
Just looking at the sun glasses
Down on the beaches
Just looking at all the peaches
Down on the beaches
Just looking at all the peaches
Down on the beaches
Down on the beaches
Down on the beaches...

Black And Gold

( Sam Sparro )

If the fish swam out of the ocean
And grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed down from the trees
And grew tall and they started talking

And the stars fell out of the sky
And my tears rolled into the ocean
And now I'm looking for a reason why
You even set my world into motion

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

I look up into the night sky
I see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I feel the weight of something beyond them
I don't see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn't real

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter

'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold
Black and, black and, black and, black and gold

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
That it's all just a bunch of matter

'Cause if you're not really here
I don't wanna be either
I wanna be, next to you
Black and gold, black and gold, black and gold

Becoming A Jackal

( Villagers )

The most familiar room
Every implement was leading to you
And your homely sense of disarray
Never once the same, always rearranged
But things would never change
In the space between the window frame
Where the jackals preyed on every soul
Where they tied you to a pole
And stripped you of your clothes

I was a dreamer
Staring at windows
Out onto the main street
'Cause that's where the dream goes

And each time they found fresh meat to chew
I would turn away and return to you
You would offer me your unmade bed
Feed me till I'm fed and read me till I'm read
But when the morning came
You would catch me at the window again
In an eyes wide open sleeping state
Staring into space, with no look upon my face
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I was a dreamer
Staring at windows
Out onto the main street
'Cause that's where the dream goes

And when I grew older, when I grew bolder
Out onto the streets I flew
Released from your shackles
I danced with the jackals
And learned a new way to move

So before you take this song as truth
You should wonder what I'm taking from you
How I benefit from you being here
Lending me your ears
While I'm selling you my fears

I was a dreamer (I'm selling you my fears)
Staring at windows (I'm selling you my fears)
Out onto the main street (I'm selling you my fears)
'Cause that's where the dream goes (I'm selling you)

I was a dreamer (I'm selling you my fears)
Staring at windows (I'm selling you my fears)
Out onto the main street (I'm selling you my fears)
'Cause that's where the dream goes (I'm selling you)

Pearl's A Singer

( Elkie Brooks )

Pearl's a singer
She stands up when she plays the piano
In a nightclub

Pearl's a singer
She sings songs for the lost and lonely
Her job is entertaining folks
Singing songs and telling jokes
In a nightclub

Pearl's a singer
And they say that she once was a winner
In a contest

Pearl's a singer
And they say that she once cut a record
They played it for a week or so
On the local radio
It never made it

She wanted to be Betty Grable
But now she sits there at that beer stained table
Dreaming of the things she never got to do
All those dreams that never came true

Pearl's a singer
She stands up when she plays the piano
In a nightclub
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Pearl's a singer
She stands up and she sings songs for the lost and the lonely
Her job's entertaining folks
Singing songs and telling jokes
In a nightclub, yeah

Pearl's a singer
She sings songs for the lost and lonely
Her job is entertaining folks
Singing songs and telling jokes
In a nightclub

Joga

( Björk )

All these accidents
That happen
Follow the dot
Coincidence
Makes sense
Only with you
You don't have to speak
I feel

Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me
Then the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to

This state of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be

All that no-one sees
You see
What's inside of me
Every nerve that hurts
You heal
Deep inside of me
You don't have to speak
I feel
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me, confuse
Oh, the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to

This state of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be

State of emergency
How beautiful to be

Emotional landscapes
They puzzle me
Then the riddle gets solved
And you push me up to

This state of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
Is where I want to be

State of emergency
How beautiful to be
State of emergency
How beautiful to be

Teardrop

( Massive Attack )

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Feathers on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me makes me lighter
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

Nine night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire of a confession
Feathers on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

You're stumbling a little

Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick

( Ian Dury & The Blockhead )

In the deserts of Sudan
To the gardens of Japan
From Milan to Yucatan
Every woman and every man

Hit me with your rhythm stick
Hit me, hit me
Je t'adore, ich liebe dich
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Hit me with your rhythm stick
Hit me slowly, hit me quick
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Oh, hit me

In the wilds of Borneo
And the vineyards of Bordeaux
Eskimo, Arapaho
Move their bodies to and fro, to and fro

Hit me with your rhythm stick
Hit me, hit me
Das ist gut! C'est fantastique!
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Hit me with your rhythm stick
It's nice to be a lunatic
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Oh, hit me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
In the docks of Tiger Bay
On the road to Mandalay
From Bombay to Santa Fe
Over hills and far away

Hit me with your rhythm stick
Hit me, hit me
C'est si bon, Ist es nicht
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Hit me with your rhythm stick
Two fat persons, click, click, click
Hit me, hit me, hit me

Hit me with your rhythm stick
Hit me, hit me
C'est si bon, Ist es nicht
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Hit me with your rhythm stick
It's nice to be a lunatic
Hit me, hit me, hit me
Oh, hit me...

In My Life

( The Beatles )

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

In my life I love you more

Caledonia

( Dolores Keane )

I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
And these past few days I've been afraid
That I might drift away

I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I come from
And that's the reason why I feel
So far away today

Let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia has been calling me
Now I'm going home

And if I shall become a stranger
Oh it would make me more than sad
'Cause Caledonia has been everything I've ever had
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Now I have moved on
And I've kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
I've lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others all on the way

Now I have kissed the fellas
And left them sighing
Stolen dreams oh, there's no denying
I've travelled hard
Sometimes with conscience flying
Somewhere with the wind

Let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia has been calling me
Now I'm going home

And if I shall become a stranger
Oh it would make me more than sad
'Cause Caledonia has been everything I've ever had

Now I'm sitting here
Before the fire
An empty room
Oh, a forest choir
The flames on wood
Don't get any higher
They've withered now they're gone

But I'm steady thinking
My way is clear
And I know what I'll do tomorrow
The hands have shaken
The kisses flowed and
And I will disappear

Let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia has been calling me
Now I'm going home

And if I shall become a stranger
Oh, it would make me more than sad
'Cause Caledonia has been everything I've ever had
Yes Caledonia has been everything I've ever had

Change

Waited all my life for this
The Moon and The Sun
What will be, will always come

Questioning's for someone else
The rules overrun
What will be can be undone
copy paste robots kill the internet
I've waited all my life for this
And now I feel a light
Burning like an empty room
What will be, will be
Will be, will be, will be

Listen for the day
Adhere for the turn
what will be
Can always change

So what am I supposed to do
Hold my darkest light
Guide me like a newborn child
What will be, will be
Will be, will be, will be

Odom

I always know
Whan you're in the room
You're hotter than a hot thing on a hot day
Oh I love what you do

A total eclipse
I've forgotten my name
And now I pine for you hunny
Yes I called you hunny
Feel like I don't know a single thing I knew before
copy paste robots kill the internet
Because the dreams, oh dreams, oh memories
Oh hold me in the caverns of the mind
Because the dreams, oh dreams, oh memories
Oh hold me in the caverns of the mind

And so I persist
'Cause I can't get you out of my head
Obsession is a fine word for it
As long as no one wakes up dead

Yeah and tell me you love me
Oh,I'm praying you do
'Cause I've given myself completely
Not at all discreetly
Ten months down the line
And it's 6 am and I'm crying to a beer

Oh dreams, oh memories
Oh hold me in the caverns of the mind
Oh dreams, oh memories
Oh hold me in the caverns of the mind

Oh dreams, oh memories
Oh hold me in the caverns of the mind
Oh dreams, oh memories
Oh hold me, oh hold, me, oh hold
Me in the caverns of the mind

Control

I don't wanna control you
That is not what I mean
'Cause at the heart of it
You own what I need

But it is true like you say it is
I have been too sure
That you'd be a part of this
Let's go back to the start of it

I thought I couldn't lose you
I left your worries aside
And did what I always do
It made you run and hide, hide, hide, hide
I am such a fool, such a fool, such a fool, too cool
And I want to restard this
Get back to the heart of it
copy paste robots kill the internet
Can you put it in your heart
Do you know what I'm asking
(Protection, protection)
Can you trust in me
That I know what I'm asking
(Connection, connection)
Don't you know what we're standing for
Don't you know what we stand to lose
It's love

There is no one above you
Nobody works me this hard
I give my best the investment is testament
To all that we are
And all we can be
It's no mystery look at me
I grew
And I will do right by you, right by you
Right by you, right by you

Can you put it in your heart
Do you know what I'm asking
(Protection, protection)
Can you trust in me
That I know what I'm asking
(Connection, connection)
Don't you know what we stand to lose
Don't you know what we're standing for
It's love

Oh it's love
Oh it's love
It's love

Pass the Darkness

That Leads The Way

The sun is slowly setting in the park
Beside the house I love so well
And in this setting I can't help
But be so thankful for
The life that I've been given
And the memories we where
My friend you know me inside out
Oh man, the stories we could tell

I want to give a parting gift
I want the world to know
That this has been the best time of my life
And you're the reason that I'm singing
With my heart right in my chest
You know I get so damn emotional
But now I want to give you back
The love that leads the way

That leads, that leads, that leads, that leads
That leads, that leads the way
That leads, that leads, that leads, that leads
That leads, that leads the way
copy paste robots kill the internet
Remember when the neighbours said
"The music's just too beautiful to call the cops"
So we kept playing 'till we fell asleep right at the table
And then when we woke we started right again
It was a wednesday this time last year
Come one, let's do that again

That leads, that leads, that leads, that leads
That leads, that leads the way
That leads, that leads, that leads, that leads
That leads, that leads the way

The way, the way, the way...

Home

All I ever wanted was to settle down and marry
Laugh and love and hopefully have a child
Have our families surround us
Friendships that never die
Well we can try, we can try, we can try
Oh we can try, we can try, we can try

There are times in life so good
That looked me in the eye
But I was busy
So it passed me by

But today I got a ticket
For a long journey, Home
To you and I
Oh Home, to you and I

I’m not good for you right now
I’m good for you forever
There’s so much to you makes me turn the page
My blind dedication, is no surprise
I was right, that very first day
copy paste robots kill the internet
When you rolled into the kitchen
With a basket bearing chicken
And a look of mischief pouring from your eyes

Over drinks and songs and Dad jokes
I kept touching your hand for your attention
And I kissed you in my mind

The sun was rolling upwards
And you were going home
And my head stayed drunk on your for such a long time

So I moved to this country, where you reside
So we can try, we can try, we can try
Oh, we can try, we can try, we can try

Dear Mother God in Heaven
You’re on hell of a woman
I’ll believe that it’s for something till I die
If you put two and two together
And forget about that maths
And give us three
Or four, or five
Well we can try, we can try, we can try

Love

Oh the stars are ringing
And the trees are buzzing
And I'm full of love
Full of love
'Cause I ??? of your love, of your love

Oh my heart is running
Like my legs if you want me
And I'm full of love
I'm all for love
'Cause I'm ready for your love
copy paste robots kill the internet
Once in a day when it comes
You'll never turn away from love
Once every day I'm in love
With you I am blown away
My love

You're not scared to sing it
We're unprepared so let's wing it
It's a full time job and I want that job

'Cause I've fallen for your love
We can't ??? from here
???

The Deep Reveal

Deep red setting
Open and start
The will for now or never

The unthinking has never been not thought
We live and die forever

Oh I need time for this mystery
I've got nothing to lose by just listening
I want to know what's so hard to seal
The deep reveal

Please I'm not asking
Go right back to the start
The good, the bad, whatever
Not forgetting the lingering thought
We live and die forever
copy paste robots kill the internet
Oh I need time for this mystery
If you can't give me time, I'm not listening
I wanna know what's so hard to seal
The deep reveal

The unthinking
The unknowing

The unthinking can never be undone
It's lived inside the ether
Ah, there you are
I listen to the story

I need time for a mystery
If you can give me time, I'm not asking
I want it all If I have to steal
The deep reveal
The deep reveal

Fantasy

I didn't want it but I need it now
I'm in heaven let me show you how
All the good things are living in a fantasy

When I was running just to catch the time
I slowed time 'cause it's all in my mind
But that's another good thing from living in a fantasy

And if there's a life you want it, well you can get it
It's as easy as repeating a memory into credit
It's all in your hands, so live a little daydream, daydream

I know it's easy to say it I really mean it
There is nothing you can't edit by manifesting reality
Open your mind and live a little daydream yeah
copy paste robots kill the internet
If you can control it
You're in a shitty job
Or you're in a relationshit
You can't see the light
And you want to get into it
Tell me did you breathe today
Well breathe deep
Repeat and say
It's alright, it's ok, it's cool, it's fine
It's alright, it's ok, it's cool, it's fine
It's alright, it's ok, it's cool, it's fine

I thought I knew it all at twenty two
But it turns out that I don't have a clue
But as much as I can tell
Everything is energy

So I'll go with the flow
And I'll follow the good vibes
And listen to the rhythm of the body and the eyes
And I'll be constantly surprised by the fantasy

If you can control it
You're in a shitty job
Or you're in a relationshit
You can't see the light
And you want to get into it
Tell me did you breathe today
Breathe deep
Repeat and say
It's alright, yeah, yeah
It's all alright, yeah, yeah
It's alright, yeah, yeah
It's all alright, yeah, yeah

I want it, I Need it

I'm ready and able
'Cause I've made up my mind
All of the doubts that haunt me
Seem so silly right now

There's no need to worry
I'll be home by three
I know you're looking for comfort
So let me fix what you need

I want it, I need it
I want it, I need it
copy paste robots kill the internet
There's no need to hurry
Hurryin's for fools
And there ain't nobody calling
So turn off your phone

Oh outrageous beauty
And it's all for me
Eyes to the sky, knees to the ground
You are the missing piece

I want it, I need it
I want it, I need it

Both of us figuring out
The depths of the fire, the sea
Oh, and the hurt that came before
It's gone, it's gone, it's gone

Now it's you, it's me
I'm so unbelievably lucky
I, you

I want it, I need it
I want it, I need it

Seasons

Girl if it wasn't for you
Right now I'd be stranded
Abandoned, a white wash

Now there feelings brand new
A vell has been lifted
I'm covered in new colours
copy paste robots kill the internet
Seasons get moving from red to blue
Always repeating something new
No nothing's predictable about you

We dance in the kitchen to music not playing
I listen to your heart when you lay there sleeping
I'm pressing my ear to the ground
I hear through the heartbeats that you may be sticking around

Seasons get moving from red to blue
Always repeating something new
No nothing's predictable about you

Seasons get moving from red to blue
Always repeating something new
No nothing's predictable about you

Big moon

Praise this big white moon
That shines on our roof
Big and bright
Like your eyes
God took his time making you
'Cause he made you right

Feeling the space between your fingers
For a whole afternoon
Is that the time
Because you know us
You move with the tide
You always have
You sway and glide

The days we have are like gold dust
Counting on stars
And praying you'll stay
Bleeding inside
With the electricity in your smile
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Well you give me a new clear day
You give me space
And my hair stands on end
When sometimes we dance in our bedroom
And we laugh at ourselves
Oh boy your lavish attention
On me and no one else

The days we have are like gold dust
Counting on stars
And praying you'll stay
And bleeding inside
With the electricity in your smile
The electricity in your smile

Well wow, look at that moon in the sky
Isn't that a sight
And I lie down beside you
And turn off the light

Fairytale Of New York

( Live with Jack L )

It's Christmas Eve babe
Down in the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in eighteen to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So Happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When he first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys in the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

The boys in the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day

I could have been someone
So could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you

And the boys in the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas Day

Just Can't Get Enough

( Just Can't Get Enough EP )

Well, when I'm with you baby, I go out of my head
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
All the things you do to me and everything you said
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
We slip and slide as we fall in love
And I just can't seem to get enough, oh
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
We walk together, we're walking down the street
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
Every time I think of you I know we have to meet
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
It's getting hotter, it's our burning love
And I just can't seem to get enough, oh

And when it rains, you're shining down for me
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
Just like a rainbow you know you set me free
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
