 (by Vincent Thomas)

An experimental and self taught singer and songwriter originally hailing from South East London, Andreya Triana grew up submerged in a multicultural atmosphere. A unique vocalist, Andreya began singing at the tender age of 7, taking influence from the sights and sounds of inner city London. Her early love and passion for music would see her locked in her bedroom for hours on end writing poetry, making homemade mix tapes and recording tracks - utilising two battered cassette decks to record harmonies. Her early love of improvisation would warp and change over the years, hugely influencing her 'Freeflo Sessions' - a hypnotic one woman show using a sampler to loop vocals, percussive sounds and beats live. To date she has taken her Freeflo Sessions worldwide, dazzling audiences far and wide with her cutting edge and soulful performances. 2006 saw her selected from thousands to take part in the Red Bull Music Academy in Australia where she further developed her style for improvisation and secured links with some of the best producers and musicians on the music scene. Multiple collaborations ensued daily at the Academy, with 'Tea Leaf Dancers', a collaboration with glitchy hip hop producer Flying Lotus (released on Warp Records), was a product of this and has been her most successful musical venture to date. Hailed as a classic while getting rave reviews from Benji B and Gilles Peterson while getting airplay on Annie Mac's Radio One show, it was this track that also caught the attention of Ninja Tune stalwart Bonobo. 2009 has been an eventful year for Miss Triana, touring America and Canada with the Bonobo live band, playing on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury showcasing new material and signing a three album deal with Ninja Tune Records. 2010 saw the release of her album 'Lost Where I Belong', produced by Bonobo, with fellow Ninja Tune singer and songwriter Fink also stepping up to co-write two tracks for the album. 'Lost Where I Belong' is a beautifully honest album combining Soul, Folk, Jazz and Bonobo's cinematic magic in a highly anticipated and hotly tipped debut... watch out for Andreya Triana!

Lost Where I Belong

Draw The Stars

While the people sleep I lie awake
Encased in dreams that carry me
To a distant sound to undertake
I feel its way

Even though I'm helpless of
The force above
And even though I can't see far
I hold tighter and draw the stars

While the birds fly
I sink below
Into the cloth and weeping willows
Binding me to the wood
A shelter from a world of good

Even though I am helpless of
The force above
Even though I, I can't see far
I hold on tighter, draw the stars

Upon my page
And while the wind blows
I open my arms
And just let them go

Even though I am helpless of
The force above
Even though I, I can't see far
I hold on tighter and draw the stars
I hold on tighter and draw the stars
Draw the stars

Lost Where I Belong

Staring at an empty page again
Searching deep within my soul
Sometimes I don't know where to begin
When there's nothing left to hold

So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on
So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on
'Cause I'm lost where I belong
Where I belong, where I belong
Where I belong

Drifting around this empty place again
Hoping to feel whole
Hearing nothing but the world spinning
The silence is louder than before

So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on
So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on
'Cause I'm lost where I belong
Where I belong, where I belong
Where I belong

I can't give you what I don't have to give
Am I going somewhere
Still I try to believe

I can't give you what I don't have to give
Am I going somewhere
Still I try to believe

So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on
So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on

So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on
So I will sing you a song
That I know that I can lean on

A Town Called Obsolete

As I sit here with this urgency
And nobody to the side of me
All quiet and alone
Needing answers of the unknown
Flitting between the real and aloof
A strenghtening pulse of these blues
Sketched out and oh so confused
Just keep calling
Just keep calling

Put it down and it will come around
A hidden street
A town called obsolete

Put it down and it will come around
A hidden street
A town called obsolete

I glance out at the invisible
Winding it round keeping me so warm
Impatiently overload
Missing someone that I've never known
Flitting between the plead and the truth
At times I'm wondering what's the use?
So I ease out a righteous pursuit
Just keep calling
Just keep calling

Put it down and it will come around
A hidden street
A town called obsolete

Put it down and it will come around
A hidden street
A town called obsolete

Put it down and it will come around
A hidden street
A town called obsolete

Put it down and it will come around
A hidden street
A town called obsolete

Darker Than Blue

Those eyes are darker than blue
I saw that looking at you
It's not you, you wear up on your sleeve
The people stare as you walk down the street
It's not you, you wear up on your sleeve
That shows the world who you are
All except me

Those eyes are darker than blue
I saw that by candlelight
From a brighter room
And the smile you wear on the outside deceives
The people stare as you walk down the street
The smile you wear on the outside deceives
To show the world who you are
All except me

And they grow darker still
Til the hour glasses fill
They grow darker still
And show the world who you are
All except me
All except me

Those eyes are darker than blue
I saw that looking at you

Those eyes are darker than blue
I saw that looking at you

Daydreamers

Leave your candle at the door
take off your feathers
Show me your diamond pieces and such
I have a thought for you, only a little
To put in your pocket to rust

Shall we stare right through the window's pain
What it shone outside, refrain
Hoping that we'd float away
Hoping that we'd fly with...

Daydreamers
And even though we try
Daydreamers
A snapshot of the light
But it won't capture us

And so we sat that night
Beside the firelight
Dancers in the fields of lust
It picked us flowers
They dust dissolved away
And twilight was on the cusp

Standing in a gap of slight reserve
We embrace, recite a verse
Hoping that we float away
Hoping that we'd fly with

Daydreamers
And even though we try
Daydreamers
A snapshot of the light
But it won't capture us
Though we shall remain
Our hope a refrain
Distant and contained within

Daydreamers
And even though we try
Daydreamers
A snapshot of the light
Now they've captured us

Far Closer

If I could get far closer to you
Far closer, closer to you
If I could get far closer to you
Far closer, closer to you

I'm brightly fading
Savouring the doubt
Your sonnets promising
Til I bail you of fear
I'm thinking about it

Clouding all over me like summer in June
Running away just to get closer to you
To be nearer
I'm hiding behind it

But I can't deny
What I know in my mind
No, I can't deny
What I feel inside

The love you gave me
On a silver spoon
Served me well and darling now I am full
I need something sweeter
I can't fight it

A familiar feeling I know that I've been through
Another time before me and you
I can't go any deeper, no
And I can't fight it

No, I can't deny
What I know in my mind
No I can't deny
What I feel inside

No, I can't deny
What I know in my mind
No, I can't deny
What I feel inside

So if I can be far closer to you
Then I might
If I could be far closer to you
Then I might

But I can't deny
What I know in my mind
No, I can't deny
What I feel inside

No, I can't deny
What I know in my mind
No, I can't deny
What I feel inside

I'm brightly fading
Savouring the doubt
Your sonnets promising til I bail out of fear
I'm thinking about it
I'm thinking about it
I'm thinking about it

Something In The Silence

I don't need it all to be alright
Some of the time would be kinda nice
I'm whispering "I hope you will be kind"
When we awake in tomorrow's lie
One step frightened but you're lovely
Two steps shy but let's try

So it's up to you
What you do
It's up to you
'Cause I'm all good
It's up to you
Something in the silence

I close my eyes to you, my compromise
You're up and down
Then meet me on the side
A part of you, it doesn't feel right
But then the other, I hold on too tight
One step I see it could get ugly
Two steps ignoring the signs

But it's up to you
What you do
It's up to you
'Cause I'm all good
It's up to you
Something in the silence

You come undone and broken it seems
A piece of you is no good to me

So it's up to you
What you do
It's up to you
'Cause I'm all good
It's up to you
Something in the silence
It's up to you

It's up to you
What you do
It's up to you
'Cause I'm all good
It's up to you
Something in the silence
It's up to you

If you got it, it's yet to be seen
You come undone and broken it seems
A shattered you, a bleeding me
A piece of you is no good to me
And I thought I could hear something in the silence...

Up In Fire

Up in fire
We melt like vapors of the sun
We glistened once
Remember how we could not get enough
But the heat put out the feeling
That I gave to you
And you gave to me
Now there's just a memory
That sinks within me only to rise again

Burnt out ruins of our love
Rage on and roam free
Burnt out ruins of our love
Breathe on and break free

Dismantled
A part of this delicate frame
Encasing us
Only the unsaid remains
But we meet time and again
And ignite a fire deep within of no feeling
On our feet rising again
The distance brings us closer
But we're both knowing

Burnt out ruins of our love
Rage on and roam free
Burnt out ruins of our love
Breathe on and break free

We pirouette and it replays
Around and round my head
I'm trying to forget
But I know that it's there

Burnt out ruins of our love
Rage on and roam free
Burnt out ruins of our love
Breathe on and break free

Burnt out ruins of our love
Rage on and roam free
Burnt out ruins of our love
Breathe on and break free

Hey you
The long time stranger
Do you think of before?
When we were wrapped up in ourselves
In a mess behind the door
Now it seems so, so immature
Your stolen signs
The stickers on your door

The beginning was warmer
Than your ending prose
You were another conqueror
I was another part disposed
I guess that's just the way it goes

Hey you
My one time wonderer
Do you feel for before
It is etched out in photographs
And scratched up records
Now it seems so, so immature
Your postered walls
The dirt on your floor

The beginning was warmer
Than your ending prose
You were another conqueror
I was another part disposed
I guess that's just the way it goes

So I want to know
Did you ever think of me on a summer's day
Or holding her hand out in the rain
Remember I said "Please, please, please don't go"
And now we're just strangers in different worlds
I guess that's just the way it goes

I guess that's just the way it goes
Way it goes
I guess that's just the way it goes
Way it goes

Giants

Paper Walls

No purely silver gates
No stairway made of gold
Just this empty space
And you for me to hold

These paper walls fold us in two
Even when they tear, they bring me closer to you
Holes in the roof just help the flowers grow
This is the only place that I call home

Whispers through the wall
Sing us to sleep at night
Echo loud and tall
Tell me it's gonna be alright
When everything's unknown
You can't help holding on too long
Scared to let it go
But it's the only way we grow

These paper walls fold us in two
Even when they tear, they bring me closer to you
Holes in the roof just help the flowers grow
This is the only place that I call home
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
These paper walls fold us in two
Even when they tear, they bring me closer to you
Holes in the roof just help the flowers grow
This is the only place
This is the only place that I call home

Take this wooden frame
Built on solid ground
Let's fill it full of love
And everything we've found

Why did we hesitate
What were we waiting for
Garden so full of hope
That it grows right through the door

These paper walls fold us in two
Even when they tear, they bring me closer to you
Holes in the roof just help the flowers grow
This is the only place that I call home

These paper walls fold us in two
Even when they tear, they bring me closer to you
Holes in the roof just help the flowers grow
This is the only place
This is the only place
I'm gonna call it home
I'm gonna call it home
And on these paper walls...
I'm gonna call it home

Gold

Lord only knows
This heart is free
A brand new day is at my feet
I'll sing it low
Low and sweet
I'll give more soul
Give it all of me

It all feels like gold
Gold to me
Might not be diamonds
But it shines for me
It all feels like gold
Gold to me
It ain't lost in silence
It's all good to me

Sing it
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Gold
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Simple things
They light me up
What a beautiful world
And I see the love
In everything and everyone
And I'm digging so deep
Oh the time will come

It all feels like gold
Gold to me
Might not be diamonds
But it shines for me
It all feels like gold
Gold to me
It ain't lost in silence
It's all good to me

Sing it
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Gold
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

I open my eyes
I see there so much beauty
There's so much more than I ever believed
High touching the sky where the angels keep falling
It's all good to me
It's all good to me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
It all feels like gold
Gold to me
Might not be diamonds
But it shines for me
It all feels like gold
Gold to me
It ain't lost in silence
It's all good to me

Sing it
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Gold
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

It all feels like gold
Gold to me
Might not be diamonds
But it shines for me
It all feels like gold
Gold to me
It ain't lost in silence
It's all good to me
It's all good to me
All good to me
All good to me
It's all good to me

That's Alright With Me

The hours are chasing days
As I let go of yesterday
And how I long to see
What this life could be

I don't know what we will find
But I'm staying here right by your side

And it won't take much
Just what we need
If all we've got is love
Then that's enough for me
Got all that I want
Got all that I need
As long as there is love
Then that's alright with me
That's alright with me

You know me now like no one else
'Cause I had to find myself
In a lost and empty place
You kissed away my darkest days

I don't know what we will find
But I'm staying here right by your side

And it won't take much
Just what we need
If all we've got is love
Then that's enough for me
Got all that I want
Got all that I need
As long as there is love
That's alright with me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm drowning in the ways that I love you
You know that ain't hard to see
And heaven knows when I am around you
It's the only place I want to be

And it won't take much
Just what we need
If all we've got is love
Then that's enough for me
Got all that I want
Got all that I need
As long as there is love
That's alright with me
So it won't take much
All we've got is love
That's enough
All that I want
All that I need
As long as there is love
That's alright with me
That's alright with me
That's alright with me
That's alright with me
That's alright with me

Lullaby

I press repeat
Rewinding the last line
Spending all my time
Wrapped up in you

Days drift by
In visions and half rhymes
Confusion and life lines
Til I feel brand new

Sitting in my bedroom with my headphones
Brothers on the settee with the TV on
Mother will be tired when she gets home
Close my eyes and lean on you

You sing me songs of wisdom
And every word is a lullaby
Hold me close and listen
Turn this grey into bright sunshine
When I was that little girl
Lost in the world you painted my sky
So sing me songs of wisdom
And tell me it's gonna be alright
Alright

Fast forward
A day and lifetime
I'm too busy to make time
For looking back

And days fly by
In a blur of the headlights
A whirlwind in my mind
And I'm losing track

But when the video was singing out that old song
I am right back in my bedroom with my headphones on
And every word reminds me where I come from
Close my eyes I lean on you

You sing me songs of wisdom
And every word is a lullaby
Hold me close and listen
Turn this grey into bright sunshine
When I was that little girl
Lost in the world you painted my sky
So sing me songs of wisdom
And tell me it's gonna be alright
Alright

I never know about this love before
Changing everything and opening doors
I got a little bit and now I want more
You're setting me free
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm not waiting for my life to start
Won't let this crazy world pull me apart
If I've got you
I've got what I need

You sing me songs of wisdom
And every word is a lullaby
Hold me close and listen
Turn this grey into bright sunshine
When I was that little girl
Lost in the world you painted my sky
So sing me songs of wisdom
And tell me it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright
It's gonna be alright
Gonna be alright

Giants

Pictures start to fade
As borrowed yesterdays
Play an old love song

You had aces and the spades
Dark side and mind games
Turned the right to wrong

Burn bridges, building walls
Feel weak, you're looming tall
There's no way over, no way over

Frayed the edges of my soul
Stolen heart, you took it all
Tied up in knots
But the chains unlock

I walk like giants
With wild defiance
Stronger than I've ever known
Alone
Gold as lions
Eyes like diamonds
Oh you hit me with your heart of stone
But you won't take the best of me
No you won't take the best of me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
It ended at the start
I kid myself like a fine art
For all to see
A story with no parts
Just emotion made of glass
A fantasy, cold fantasy

You cross my heart , I draw the line
See the picture, read the signs
There's no way over
Now that it's over

There's nothing left that's whole
Underneath it all
Tie up in knots
But the chains unlock

I walk like giants
With wild defiance
Stronger than I've ever known
Alone
Shine gold as lions
Eyes like diamonds
'Cause you hit me with your heart of stone
You won't take the best of me

Don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
Your heart don't wanna be wrong
Don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
No I don't wanna be wrong
You won't take the best of me
I don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
You won't take the best of me

I don't wanna be wrong
I don't wanna be wrong
No, I don't wanna be wrong
Gold as lions
Eyes like diamonds
Stronger than I've ever known

Heart In My Hands

The thin line between love and hate
Battle with myself
At war on my own

How much of this can I take
Can't blame no one else
I did it alone
Where have I been
Whose watching over me

Need to breath
Need to break in my mind
Feel the blood in my veins
Like a kick inside
When I'm all out of feeling
That don't belong to me
I need to breath

In between the nightmares and dreams
I barely spoke
Words stuck in my throat
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The angels of heaven in hell
Were bound to me close
I can't let go
Please wait for me
Tender and patiently

Need to breath
Need to break in my mind
Feel the blood in my veins
Like a kick inside
When I'm all out of feeling
That don't belong to me
When all I need is to be
All I need is to breathe

I hold my heart in my hands
I hurt myself
I hold my heart in my hands

Need to breath
Need to break in my mind
Feel the blood in my veins
Like a kick inside
When I'm all out of feeling
That don't belong to me
I need is to breathe

I hold my heart in my hands

Keep Running

He's working nine to five
In a dark and dirty place
He gets up too early
Doesn't see his children

His wifes been working so hard
Just to pay their way
'Causes Lizzie needs new shows
Got worn out souls in the bottom

He gets down on his knees
Closes his eyes and starts to pray
The tears come tumbling down
Just like the rhythm of the rain
He's thinking

Now keep running
Got his hands up
And he knows it's not enough today
Singing keep running
Got his hands up and he knows it's not enough
Knows it's not enough
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
She's five foot nine
And oh she never had a work a day
When she tip toes in at 5am and they don't notice
'Cause her daddy sleeps with his rolex on
Her mums been shopping all day long
While she lies awake on a bed of roses full of thorns

She gets down on her knees
Opens her eyes to another day
The tears come tumbling down
Just like an endless tidal wave
She's thinking

Now keep running
Got his hands up
And he knows it's not enough today
Singing keep running
Got his hands up and he knows it's not enough
Knows it's not enough

The Changing Shapes Of Love

I realise half the time
I've been afraid to feel this feeling
Times gone by I compromised
What I thought I needed
Pages turn when you're around
With you here the walls break down
Just stay a while with me…

'Cause I'm not gonna stop when the sun goes down
I'm not gonna wait til the stars hit the ground
And I won't run away when the flame burns out
I awaken with visions of
The changing shapes of love
The changing shapes of love

Now and then in my head's a place that you're not seeing
You bring me back, your kiss of life
Now I know I'm breathing
Live and learn what matters now
Tables turn as I found out
Please stay a while with me….

'Cause I'm not gonna stop when the sun goes down
I'm not gonna wait til the stars hit the ground
And I won't run away when the flame burns out
I awaken with visions of
The changing shapes of love
The changing shapes of love
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I see all our ways change the shape of love
Beautiful colours in the dark
I never knew I could feel so much
But I know it now…

'Cause I'm not gonna stop when the sun goes down
I'm not gonna wait til the stars hit the ground
And I won't run away when the flame burns out
I awaken with visions of
The changing shapes of love...

Clutterbug

I had to write a note
'Cause every time I come around you hide
You keep your curtains closed
But I see your shadow sat alone inside
Seems like lately you've been sinking
Under the weight of your disguise
But I still see the traces
Of those big brown shining eyes

So throw it away before you throw it all away
You've got everything you need and you know it

Oh little clutterbug
You're glitter in the mud
Hidden under this stuff
Don't turn your light to dust
When love moves on you can't replace what's gone
With a million tiny things
Believe me little clutterbug
You got a friend til the end and you can start again

Wish I could wrap you up
Roll you up in cotton wool so tight
'Cause when life gets too tough
A tiny little knock can bruise your pride
When a pennies all but wasted
Buying mountains you can't climb
Get so lost in familiar places
That you can't even see the sky
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Throw it away before you throw it all away
You gotta throw it away

Oh little clutterbug
You're glitter in the mud
Hidden under this stuff
Don't turn your light to dust
When love moves on you can't replace what's gone
With a million tiny things
Believe me little clutterbug
You got a friend til the end and you can start again
You got a friend til the end and you can start again
Start again, start again, start again, start again

You gotta throw it away before you throw it all away
You've got everything you need and you know it
You gotta throw it away before you throw it all away
You've got everything you need and you know it...

Song For A Friend

Wait for all the broken pieces to fade
And lay your head upon my shoulder til you wake
And sleep through the stormy winter we'll escape
You know I will be here at the end of the day
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You know you're never alone
When times are hard I'll hold you close
Let love heal you and I'll do the same
You know I will be here at the end of the day

Tears falling down your cheek that can't be saved
And fears stealing from softness of your face
I will pray we'll be turning corners out of this place
You know I will be here at the end of the day

You know you're never alone
When times are hard I'll hold you close
Let love heal you and I'll do the same
You know I will be here at the end of the day

The arms of love will pick you up
Wrap you up til you catch your breath
Catch your breath
Through the storm and reckless skies
Endless days and the sleepless nights
I'll be by your side

You know you're never alone
When times are hard I'll hold you close
Let love heal you and I'll do the same
You know I will be here at the end of the day
You know I will be here at the end of the day
You know I will be here at the end of the day

It's Not Over

Winding roads when you're chasing dreams
I hold it close but then it's out of reach
Like a lover's heart of stone
Just like a lover I've always known

You break me down
Piece by piece
Til all that's left
Is make belief
I draw the future in my mind
The colours bleeding
Broken lines

My heart of flames
I feel the heat
Something inside keeps telling me
That it's not over
No, i's not over
The hand of fate
It carries me
Time after time when I'm in need
It tells me it's not over
No, it's not over

Spending days keeping the faith
When there's not a whisper
Not a soul to say that it'll be alright
Just got to hold on tight
Guitar in arm
Make it my home
I lay it down and sing the devil's song
The angels of my page
Won't they break and fly away
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
My heart of flames
I feel the heat
Something inside keeps telling me
That it's not over
No, i's not over
The hand of fate
It carries me
Time after time when I'm in need
It tells me it's not over
It's not over

And I can't wait to see
'Cause I know better times are gonna be here
That's what I believe
Yes I know better times are gonna be here
I never give up hope
I can do it on my own

My heart of flames
They carry me
Time after time when I'm in need
It tells me it's not over
It tells me it's not over...

Everything You Never Had Pt.II

September falls, autumn's in the air
A hand me down blazer a plait in my hair
I'm never on time, that's the way it goes
When I'm dragging my heels down Atlantic Road

Felt rich in poor girls clothes
They kept me safe when the world was cold
It didn't matter they were worn out before
Well I never wanted for anything more
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
When we were nothing we had it all
Your arms of love kept me warm
And all I wanted
'Cause you gave me everything that you never had

I think you're something that I want to be
Your arms of love wrapped around me
And I'm coming home
'Cause you gave me everything that you never had

You'd take my hand when I cut my knee
You kissed it better you healed me
And even now when it gets too much
You're by my side

And I'm rich in secondhand clothes
They keep me safe when the world is cold
It doesn't matter they were worn out before
And I don't want for anything more

No, no
When we were nothing we had it all
Your arms of love they kept me warm
And all I wanted
'Cause you gave me everything that you never had

I think you're something that I want to be
Your arms of love wrapped around me
And I'm coming home
'Cause you gave me everything that you never had

We laugh, we cry
We get by and we've got to be strong
We've always got to be strong
We struggle, we fight
When we rise and we've got to be strong
We've always got to stay strong

'Cause you gave me everything that you never had

When we were nothing we had it all
Your arms of love kept me warm
And all I wanted
'Cause you gave me everything that you never had

I think you're something that I want to be
Your arms of love wrapped around me
And I'm coming home
'Cause you gave me everything that you never had
Gave me everything that you never had
You gave me everything that you never had
All I can do is try and give you something back

Everything You Never Had (We Had It All)

(Breach feat. Andreya Triana)

September falls, autumn's in the air
A hand me down blazer a plait in my hair
I'm never on time, that's the way it goes
Dragging my heels down Atlantic Road

Felt rich in poor girls clothes
They kept me safe when the world was cold
It didn't matter they were worn out before
Well I never wanted for anything more

You'd take my hand when I cut my knee
You kissed it better you healed me
And even now when it gets too much
You're by my side, you pick me up

I'm rich in secondhand clothes
They keep me safe when the world is cold
It doesn't matter they were worn out before
And I don't want for anything more
For anything more
For anything more
For anything more
For anything more
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
When we were nothing, we had it all
In your arms of love, you kept me warm
You kept me warm
You kept me warm

I think you're something that I wanna be
With your arms of love around me
I'm coming home, I'm coming home
'Cause you gave me everything that you never had
You gave me everything that you
You gave me everything that you
You gave me everything that you never

We laugh, we cry, we get by
And we gotta be strong
We've always gotta stay strong
We struggle, we fight
When we rise and we've got to be strong
We've always got to stay strong
All I can do is try and give you something back
You gave me everything that you never had

When we were nothing
We had it all
When we were nothing
We had it all
When we were nothing
We had it all
When we were nothing
We had it all
When we were nothing
We had it all
We had it all
We had it all
We had it all

When we were nothing
We had it all

We had it all

Eyesdown

(Bonobo feat. Andreya Triana)

Hands up
I got my eyes facing down
I’ll show you where my tears come down
Slowly down…

I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know

( Donny Hathaway / Live )

If I ever leave you
You can say I told you so
And if I ever hurt you
You know I hurt myself as well

Is that any way for a man to carry on
Do you think I want my loved one gone
I love you more than you'll ever know
You know I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you

When I wasn't making much money
You know where my paycheck went
You know I brought it home to you, baby
Oh I, I never spent a red cent
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Tell me, is that any way to carry on
Do you think I want my loved one gone
I love you more than you'll ever know
You know I love you, I love you, I love you

I'm not trying to be
Just any kind of woman, no I ain't
I'm just trying to be somebody
That you can love, trust and understand

I know, I know, I know that I can be
A part of you that no one else could see, yeah
But I gotta hear you say, I got to hear you say
It's alright

I'm only flesh and blood
But I could be anything that you demand
I could be Queen of everything
Or just a tiny grain of sand, tell me

Is that anyway to carry on
Do you think that I want my loved one gone
I love you more than you'll ever know
I said, "I love you, I love, I love you"
Don't want nobody else but you

Song For A Friend

Wait for all the broken pieces to fade
And lay your head upon my shoulder 'till you wake
And sleep through the stormy winter we'll escape
You know I will be here at the end of the day

You know you're never alone
When times are hard I'll hold you close
Let love heal you and I'll do the same
You know I will be here at the end of the day

Tears, falling down your cheek that can't be said
And fears, they're stealing from the selfness of your face
I will pray, we'll be turning corners out of this place
You know I will be here at the end of the day
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You know you're never alone
When times are hard I'll, I'll hold you close
Just let love heal you and I'll do the same
You know I will be here at the end of the day

The arms of love will pick you up
Trap you up 'till you catch your breath
You catch your breath
Through the storm and reckless skies
Endless days and the sleepless nights
I'll be by your side

You know you're never alone
When times are hard I'll, I'll hold you close
Just let love heal you and I'll do the same
You know I will be here at the end of the day
You know I will be here at the end of the day
You know I will be here at the end of the day

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

Stay The Same

(Bonobo feat. Andreya Triana)

A night train
Midnight
Bags gathered round my feet
Possessions
Some lessened
To carry with me
Heavy and soothing
Like a gentle symphony

I rest my head right
Back upon my seat
It's hard and cold though
The best thing for me
This train is moving
But my heart is stationery

Seasons change
Signed that it won't be the same
I'm hoping, I won’t stay the same
Reasons strange
Why we almost play these games

I left it
With you
A note that was discreet
I made sure
I put it
Upon the cellar door
It's hanging, hoping
Will you read it while I weep

Last time
The last time
It flickers through me
So vivid
It rushes
From my head down to my feet
We're laughing, joking
Threw a dice to my defeat

Seasons change
It will never be the same
I'm hoping
I won’t stay the same
Reasons strange
Why we almost play these games

Seasons change
It will never be the same
I'm hoping
I won’t stay the same
Reasons strange
Why we almost play these games

Seasons change
It will never be the same
I'm hoping
I won’t stay the same
Reasons strange
Why we almost play these games

Superlove

(Everything You Never Had Pt. II EP)

You play it naive
Your tears are on your sleeve
But you hide out in your room til three

You give me the speech
How you gotta stand up and be strong
Take the punches through the heat

But you don't fool me
You're no army made of one
Lone ranger on the run from defeat
Oh brother believe

When you got that tough look in your eye
I can see what hides underneath

But I'm not moving
Can't you see

This superlove
A million feet above from broken ground
It's just enough
To turn the music up when you are down
Have no fear
It's so clear
I'll be there
Just believe in this superlove
This superlove

The show must go on
You've got your curtains close til one
A pillow of problems in your head

Drop the disguise
Why do you feel the need to hide
Why can't you just be happy instead

You're not fooling me
You're no army made of one
At war with everyone that you see

Oh brother believe
When you got that dark look in your eye
I can see what hides underneath

And I'm not moving
Can't you see

This superlove
A million feet above from broken ground
It's just enough
To turn the music up when you are down
Have no fear
It's so clear
I'll be there
Just believe in this superlove
This superlove

Tea Leaf Dancers

(Flying Lotus feat. Andreya Triana / Reset EP)

Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Hey, hey

No, I can't seem to get it
And in my mind I'm betting
My time's made up, I gotta go

And it's alright if you want
To see through your tomorrow
But right now I gotta go


If you want to stay, then you can be here with me
But I can't let go of all this love, oh no, so easily
I said, if you want to stay, then you can be here with me
But I can't let go of all this love, oh no, so easily
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
No, I can't seem to forget
And in my mind it's steady
My times made up, but I'm at home

And it's alright if you want
To be who you want to be
But right now I gotta go
Go, go, go

If you want to stay, then you can be here with me
But I can't let go of all this love, oh no, so easily
I said, if you want to stay, then you can be here with me
But I can't let go of all this love, oh no, so easily

If you want to go, babe, you can
But hear me out
Oh, I can't let it go oh so easily
So easily, babe
So easily, babe

Yeah, yeah, yeah

No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no
If you want
Easily
It's alright
Believe me, it's alright
It's alright

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

The Best Is Yet To Come

The old man's back
Got no place to go
Walking these streets
To find himself a home
A bed of broken glass
That's never made to last
Down where he lays
A part of him remains
A part of him remains

Throw it all away
Let it all come down
Let the stars fade out and every tear drown
throw it all away
Let it all come down
Let the stars fade out and every tears drown
Just when your thinking that you've got it all
The best is yet to come…
The best is yet to come…
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
The old man chats
He's got so much to say
He's missing his kids and the good old days
Things were simple then
A white line for a friend
He took the lone road
Thats how the story goes
Thats how the story goes

Throw it all away
Let it all come down
Let the stars fade out and every tear drown
throw it all away
Let it all come down
Let the stars fade out and every tears drown
Just when your thinking that you've got it all
The best is yet to come…
The best is yet to come…

Sat in the same place every day
Begging round these parts in the rain
He's hanging on and I don't know how
But he does somehow
He does somehow

Throw it all away
Let it all come down
Let the stars fade out and every tear drown
throw it all away
Let it all come down
Let the stars fade out and every tears drown
Just when your thinking that you've got it all
The best is yet to come…
The best is yet to come…

The Keeper

(Bonobo feat. Andreya Triana)

I know she said
That I don't need her
‘Cause every time I call
She’s sitting sweeter

Well I know she said
To get near her
But I'm feeling cold
And I must leave her

Sat down here with my head hung down
And I just seem to find
A bit of peace
A bit of love
A bit of something left behind

Sat down here less intentions
Nothing said, nothing lied
A bit of peace
A bit of love
A bit of something left inside

And my heart's content
I said I don’t please her
Happiness is on her face
It's the mind that greets her
Only my disgrace
To admit I need her
But we all fall from grace
Dust me down and keep her

Sat down here with my head hung down
And I just seem to find
A bit of peace
A bit of love
A bit of something left behind

Sat down here less intentions
And nothing said, nothing lied
A bit of peace
A bit of love
A bit of something left inside

We can go on
We can go on
We can go on
We can go on...

Because we can go on
Living this way
