 (by Official Press)

Bic Runga’s uniquely phrased pop songs and hauntingly beautiful melodies have already earned her a special place in the pantheon of New Zealand song. Her third album Birds was out in New Zealand on in November 2005, it is her third consecutive #1 album and has already reached platinum status.
Since emerging at 19 years old with her debut single ’Drive’ a decade ago, Bic has travelled a remarkable musical journey, taking her to the top of charts at home and around the world at the same time as winning enormous critical acclaim for her winsome, transfixing tunes. Her albums, Drive (1996) and Beautiful Collision (2002), have sold seven- and eleven-times platinum respectively in New Zealand, the latter spawning the single ‘Get Some Sleep’, a top ten hit in Japan and Ireland that also broke into the UK top 40. Beautiful Collision featured at no.32 in Mojo magazine’s list of the best albums of 2002 and no.34 in Uncut’s annual critics’ poll for that year. Having spent most of 2003 and 2004 living in Paris and London, Bic returned home for the summer of 2005. That summer ended on a sad note for the Runga family with the death of Bic’s father, Joe, but Bic went on to complete a world tour playing as a soloist in support of the Finn Brothers through March and April.

Neil Finn had long been a fan of Bic’s music and had contributed vocals to Beautiful Collision. Talking with Bic on the Finn Brothers tour, he immediately warmed to Bic’s idea to record her new album as “live” as possible – and agreed to join as pianist/guitarist with the ensemble of players she had picked from a pool of New Zealand’s finest musicians. Taking the role of album producer herself, Bic convened the band in Auckland’s Monte Cecilia House in August 2005. Built in 1879, with wonderfully detailed architecture complete with parquet floors, elaborate ceiling roses, marble fireplaces and four-storeyed tower overlooking a wooded park, Monte Cecilia provided the perfect location for the month-long recording session. Initial recording concentrated on capturing the often elusive magic of great “live takes”. With up to ten singers and players recording in the room at one time, Bic’s approach harked back to jazz recordings of the 50s and beyond and the timeless pop recordings from before single instrument track-laying became the norm in the 1970s. There is a natural intimacy between instruments and voices playing live in the same room that she felt could be easily lost in a modern studio setting. By the time an eight piece string section and further instrumentation including French horn, flute, harp and clarinet had been added, the intricate arrangements and richly textured songs were taking shape. Bic flew with the tapes to London to mix the album with Simon Gogerly, renowned for his work alongside Nellie Hooper and with artists as diverse as the Rolling Stones, Cat Stevens and mixing U2’s latest single.

The resulting album is a superb distillation of Bic Runga’s incredible songwriting talent and her firm grasp on the universal language of romance. Undercurrents of subtle melancholy in songs like the breathtaking and spacious ‘Captured’ and ‘Say After Me’ flow through to uplifting notes of hope in first single ‘Winning Arrow’ and ‘If I Had You’. Bic Runga’s ubiquity in New Zealand music belies her relative youth. Three albums into a career that her numerous admirers trust will run for many years to come, she demonstrates the artistic value in trying new ways to bring her songs out into the open and letting them soar on new wings. Bic will tell you that this album’s creation was a magical experience for her - and you can hear that magic in the songs. Birds is simply her finest musical statement yet.

Drive

Drive

I know it's late now I know I ought to go
Ride in your car now but please don't drop me home
My head's so heavy, could this be all a dream?
Promise me maybes and say things you don't mean
Rain fall from concrete coloured sky
No boy, don't speak now you just
Drive, drive, drive
Take me through make me fell alive, alive
When I ride with you

Keep my heart turning on axles around you
Keep our love burning just like it used to do
Now just for us, they could play our favourite tune
Let's not discuss all these things we can't undo

Let rain fall from concrete coloured sky
No boy, don't speak now you just
Drive, drive, drive
Take me through make me fell alive, alive
When I ride with you

Rain fall from concrete coloured sky
No boy, don't speak now you just drive

Sway

Don't stray, don't ever go away
I should be much too smart for this
You know it gets the better of me
Sometimes, when you and I collide
I fall into an ocean of you, pull me out in time
Don't let me drown, let me down
I say it's all because of you

And here I go, losing my control
I'm practising your name so I can say it to your face
It doesn't seem right, to look you in the eye
Let all the things you mean to me
Come tumbling out my mouth
Indeed it's time to tell you why
I say it's infintely true

Say you'll stay, don't come and go
Like you do
Sway my way, yeah I need to know
All about you

And there's no cure, and no way to be sure
Why everything's turned inside out
Instilling so much doubt
It makes me so tired - I feel so uninspired
My head is battling with my heart
My logic has been torn apart
And now it all turns sour
Come sweeten every afternoon

Say you'll stay, don't come and go
Like you do
Sway my way, yeah I need to know
All about you

Say you'll stay, don't come and go
Like you do
Sway my way, yeah I need to know
All about you

It's all because of you
It's all because of you

Now it all turns sour, come sweeten every afternoon
It's time to tell you why, I say it's infinitely true

Say you'll stay, don't come and go
Like you do
Sway my way, yeah I need to know
All about you

Say you'll stay, don't come and go
Like you do
Sway my way, yeah I need to know
All about you

It's all because of you
It's all because of you
It's all because of you

Hey

You were on the second floor
Hanging out the window watching the cars passing by
With that look in your eye
And I was hanging round below
Waving to ya from the road
I was calling your name
You were miles away

Hey
You've been wondering
What's it to ya?
You've been questioning why all day
It's such a silly thing
Still it threw ya, caught you by surprise

You're coming to me loud and clear
There's nothing really for us here
It's a terrible thing
Hannging on by a string
There's nothing left for me to say
You've said it all already now
I won't add anymore
I'll just slip out the door

Hey
You've been wondering
What's it to ya?
You've been questioning why all day
It's such a silly thing
Still it threw ya, caught you by surprise 

You and I so sick and tired
Of hanging around
You and me, we both agree
It's all over now
All over now

Hey
You've been wondering
What's it to ya?
You've been questioning why all day
It's such a silly thing
Still it threw ya, caught you by surprise

Bursting through

I'm counting stars
Lying under, watching you through my walls
All the lights have gone out
I know you're listening now
You've been spinning around, turning slowly
Orbiting round my house
And it's a feeling I get
I know you're listening now

Warm me today, warm me today
Filter in my lonely room
Warm me today, warm me today
Look outside the sun it's bursting through, bursting through
Oh, it's filling up this room

Now my fingers are cold
But I have touched you
You're all I need to know
Don't fade from me now
I know you're listening somehow

All you can give, all you can give
Twisting by its more than the light
It's all you can give, all you can give
Look outside the sun is bursting through, bursting through
Oh, it's filling up this room
Warm me today, warm me today
Look outside the sun it's bursting through, bursting through
Oh, filling up this room

Swim

This frame of mind
Young hollow man
Said all I've got to say
Done all I can
Won't even try
Wont even show
Don't tell me things
I don't want to know

Swim through me
Make me more than whole
Come see what I mean
Make me feel secure

And in these days between when I fall apart
I'd run away but you know I'm not that smart
These strange ideas, I'll see them through
They've been a part of me
And I know that they're a part of you
And

Swim through me
Make me more than whole
Come see what I mean
Make me feel secure...

Roll into one

If I could make you mine
We could spend some time
Maybe you could come around in the weekend
Summer's rolling by and we don't have much time
Tell me all about what keeps you ticking

We could sit in the sun
Let the days all roll into one
How could you take so long to decide?
How would you know until you tried?

Say what's on you mind
Don't be so unkind
If you believe in stupid things like love

We could sit in the sun
Let the days all roll into one
How could you take so long to decide?
How would you know until you tried?
We could sit in the sun
Let the days all roll into one
How could you take so long to decide?
How would you know until you tried?

Tried, tried if you tried If you tried, if you tried...

Suddenly strange

Fire, inside my shoes
Still walking forward but back to you
I s'pose I must be stuck with you again
This joke is wearing thin
I know it's time
I know its time to go

And just so you know
This secret part of me never showed
And when you run around like you don't care
I'm suddenly aware
I know it's time
I know it's time

It's suddenly strange
I can hardly complain
I'm down the stairs
And I'm out the door
It's suddenly colder
It bowled me right over
I'm down again
I suppose its over now

Don't ask me how
But it didn't take much to figure out
And you know I'll go acting really tuff
Giving back your stuff
I know it's time
I know it's time

It's suddenly strange
I can hardly complain
I'm down the stairs
And I'm out the door
It's suddenly colder
It bowled me right over
I'm down again
I suppose its over now

And you know I'll go acting really tuff
And giving back your stuff
I know it's time
I know it's time

It's suddenly strange
I can hardly complain
I'm down the stairs
And I'm out the door
It's suddenly colder
It bowled me right over
I'm down again
I suppose its over now

Fire inside my shoes, it's over now

Sorry

Wring out my guilt and hang it on the line
Its been raining all week, it won't get a chance to dry
I've been looking round the pantry for a box of sorries
I'm all run out yeah
I'm all run out

It's not that hard to say I know
It's not that hard to say I know
It's not that hard to say
So why can't I say it now?

And its been swelling up inside like the kitchen sponge
Its on the back of my throat, its on the tip of my tongue
If I could sweep it out he door that would be the end
But this wind keeps blowing it in again

It's not that hard to say I know
It's not that hard to say I know
It's not that hard to say
So why can't I say it now?

Say It now, say it now, say it now!
Say it now, say it now, say it now!

And I've been locking all the doors and drawing all the blinds
It always seems to find its way back inside
If I could sweep it out the door that would be the end
But this wind keeps blowing it in again

So I can say it now
Say it now, say it now, say now!
Say it now, say it now, say now!
Say it now, say it now, say now!
Say it now, say it now, say now!
It's not that hard to say I know

Heal

Don't forget me
Bring me down
Don't let me promise you
Things I cannot do
This infection adds to my collection
Hoard my pain
And show it to you one day
You alone indeed
You sing so adamantly
And it fills my mind with thoughts so fine
Don't ask too much of me oh

Heal me now, heal me now
Heal me now, heal me now

Don't erase me
Cut me out replace me
I'm still here
I'm not going anywhere
You alone indeed
You sing so adamantly
Let it free what ever's locked inside
Don't ask too much of me

Heal me now, heal me now
Heal me now, heal me now

Delight

Anytime that you fall asleep
I'm wide-awake
Anytime that you leave your house
I'm waiting at the gate
I'm not angry anymore
Come on and show your soul
I'd love to hang it on the wall
Framed for me

Anytime that you smile
I know that's really you
Anytime that you laugh
You know that I'll be laughing too
But it's not funny anymore
Come on now where's your soul
Is that it crumpled on the floor?
Is this blame on me?

Delight, delight, delight, delight, delight
At least we know its name
Delight, delight, delight
Wouldn't that be nice to feel again?
Delight, delight, delight
It's all locked outside it won't be coming in

Anytime now you'll talk
At least I hope you will
Anytime now you'll speak
And you know I'll be listening still
But we don't say much anymore
Come on tell it from your soul

Delight, delight, delight, delight, delight
At least we know its name
Delight, delight, delight
Wouldn't that be nice to feel again?
Delight, delight, delight
It's all locked outside it won't be coming in 

Won't be coming in
Delight, delight, it's locked outside
Outside, tonight, it won't be coming in

Without you

Walk around the bathroom
Fill the sink
Wander round the kitchen
Make a drink
To occupy my time's my only wish
I've rearranged the magnets, on my fridge

Without you now, without you now
Without you now, without you now

Just can't make decisions
Think what to do
Turn on my television
And think of you
Splash my face with water
Brush my teeth
Your toothbrush gone from where it ought to be

Without you now, without you now
Without you now, without you now

Do do do do

Beautiful collision

When I see you smile

When I see you smile
It feels like I'm falling
It's not for anybody else to know
The way your face could light the bitter dark of every street
In every town I'll ever go
It's not for anybody else to know
For anybody else to know

When I see you smile
First thing in the morning
It raises curtains on your lazy eyes
Could it be that you and I have the greatest love to ever be
How could this have ever been before?
It's not for anybody else to know
For anybody else to know

When Friday night arrives
We'll let it pass outside the door
This is not for anybody else
Anybody else to know

Get some Sleep

From here to there to everywhere
And back to Union Square
Where do I get some sleep?
Anywhere the sleep dust lies
It decorates your eyes
Where do I get some sleep?

Stranded in June
Whistling the same old tune
But I do believe I might be having fun
I believe I might be having fun
Impeccably dressed in your second hand vest
We were waiting for the taxi to come

Putting on my daytime eyes
A good enough disguise
Until I get some sleep
Reading out the horoscopes
And using up our jokes
When do we get to sleep?

Stand on the moon
Find the light of my living room
Yes I do believe I might be having fun
I believe I might be having fun
Tune into the station
Make a dedication
This is going out to everyone

This is going out to everyone
This is going out to everyone
Something in the phrasing was quietly amazing
We were waiting for the chorus to come
This is going out to everyone
This is going out to everyone

From here to there to everywhere
And back to union square
Where do I get some sleep?
Anywhere the sleep dust lies
It decorates your eyes
When do I get some sleep?

Stranded in June
Whistling the same old tune
Yes I do believe I might be having fun
I believe I might be having fun
Tune into the station
Make a dedication
This is going out to everyone
This is going out to everyone
This is going out to everyone
This is going out to everyone
Going out to everyone
This is going out to everyone

Something Good

Just wanna know ya
Just wanna talk to ya
I wanna hear about your day
I'd never leave ya
Never be mean to ya
I'd always let you get your way

Something good will come our way
And maybe this good thing's gonna happen today

If I were honest I 'd tell you everything
But it keeps coming out as lies
It's not a promise
In case you're wondering
It's not some blessing in disguise

But something good will come our way
And maybe this good thing's gonna happen today
Something good will come our way
And maybe this good things gonna happen today

I know romance is not in fashion
And my heart is on the line
If you would be so kind
To help me kill some time

Then something good just might come crashing
From the stars that light the sky
If you would be so kind
To help me kill some time

Just wanna know ya
Just wanna talk to ya
I wanna hear about your day
I'd never leave ya
Never be mean to ya
I'd always let you get your way

Something good will come our way
And maybe this good thing's gonna happen today
Something good will come our way
And maybe this good things gonna happen today

Something good will come our way
Something good will come our way
Something good will come our way
Something good will come our way
La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
Something good will come our way

Precious Things

When all the star gazes bloom
And throw their stars around the room
I was waiting for the day
For you to love me

When all the elements conspire
With shiny things that catch the eye
I was waiting for the day
For you to love me

Precious precious thing
You are the thought that makes me sing
Wanna leave all my possessions
It's a rare and precious precious thing

When all the elements conspire
With shiny things that catch the eye
I was waiting for the day
For you to love me

Precious precious thing
You are the thought that makes me sing
Wanna leave all my possessions
It's a rare and precious precious thing

And I know all I need
Is to get on the phone
Is to get on the phone
And call you
Call you

As clear as rain on a street
It shines like bright coloured stone
These things no one can own
They are for you
This is for you
This is for you
This is for you

The Be All And End All

Flogging a rocking Horse
Getting nowhere
We are a pair to behold
You like a funeral me like a fair
Nobody cares for the show

These days the rapids may drag us from here
And I do not care where we go
And you say that love is what we are my dear
But I just pretend not to know

If it's the be all and end all
Then come on now love lets make a start
When love calls then it's time to play ball
But starting's the easiest part

Counting my blessings like stars in the sky
The sleep walking moon watching on
And she's seen how lovers before us have tried
My darling lets not get it wrong

If it's the be all and end all
Then come on now love lets make a start
When love calls how sudden the fall
But fallings the easiest part

I've had love come to nothing before
But it's alright it's alright
I've welcomed it in
And I've shown it the door
But it's alright it's alright

Election Night

Come around for tea
Dance me round and round the kitchen
By the light of my T.V
On the night of the election
Ancient stars will fall into the sea
And the ocean floor sings her sympathy

Drive me miles away
Escape the sky that we lay under
Of all the dreams we cannot shake
We're always shaking in our slumber
In the car don't let me fall asleep
I might leave my heart here on your vinyl seat

Well the sound of the city's now long gone
And in the silence of the park and every darkened cinema
Feel the little changes coming on
So come to me where you belong

Of all the bright machinery
Love's the strangest of inventions
How could this all just turn on me?
When all I wanted was perfection
And you are
That's what you are to me
You're the brightest star when all the world's asleep

Well the sound of the city's now long gone
And in the silence of the park and every darkened cinema
Feel the little changes coming on
So come to me where you belong
Come to me where you belong

Honest Goodbyes

Sink with the tide
Rescue me if you like
I'll be leaving it all up to you
Think how we tried
It's o.k. to be lied to
As long as it's only by you

People say to me it's best that we've parted
'Cause you know I'm better alone
Don't explain to me how you're so broken hearted
I'm too busy mending my own

Ending each night with such honest goodbyes
Such honest goodbyes for the last time
Honest goodbyes only work once or twice
They work once or twice
Then the rest must be lies

Late ever night the colours fade from the sky
And the music is gone from the moon
Standing in line for what used to be mine
What use is the rhyme with no tune

People say to me it's best that we've parted
And nothing is carved out in stone
It's such a shame how we're back where we started
It's late now and time that we go

Ending each night with such honest goodbyes
Such honest goodbyes for the last time
Honest goodbyes only work once or twice
They work once or twice
Then the rest must be lies

The rest must be lies...

She Left On A Monday

She left on a Monday
She's a siren down the road
In your herringbone overcoat
That you don't expect to get back

And it's an ordinary sky
Today's like any other day
When all of the aeroplanes
Write her name in the clouds

And nothing's wrong
But it's already Sunday
And you know just how Sunday
Was the day that she would come around?

Go to her foolish man
What's the use of having pride if you don't have her?
She'll endure all she can
But you could make this easier on her

It's all like sinking
You're trying to stay afloat
Like a wind blown paper boat
Over uncharted sea

There's no question why
You're driving to kill some time
Racing the power lines
Back into town

Go to her foolish man
What's the use of having pride if you don't have her?
She'll endure all she can
But you could make this easier on her

Go to her foolish man
What's the use of having pride if you don't have her?
She'll endure all she can
But you could make this easier on her
Make this easier on her
Make this easier on her
Make this easier on her

Beautiful Collision

What a beautiful collision
Things that go bump in the night
With such beautiful precision
Fate could create you and I

Do you know what it means
To abandon your dreams?
To leave with the storms rolling by
How the clouds on this day
Come to take you away
Til you're gone gone far away from me

Beautiful beautiful night
What a beautifully dangerous ride
What a beautiful day we could hardly complain about
What's going on in the sky

What a beautiful collision
Things that go bump in the night
With such beautiful precision
Fate could create you and I

Do you know what it means
To abandon your dreams?
To leave with the storms rolling by
How the clouds on this day
Come to take you away
Til you're gone gone far away from me

Beautiful beautiful night
What a beautifully dangerous ride
What a beautiful day we could hardly complain about
What's going on in the sky

Move with the strangers
That pass through your days
If someone by chance
Should call out your name
When you're lost in the places you don't care to stay
A blinding romance to blow you away

Listening For The Weather


So I'm listening for the weather to predict the coming day
Leave all thought of expectation to the weather man
No it doesn't really matter what it is he has to say
'Cause tomorrows keep on blowing in from somewhere

All the people that I know in the apartments down below
Busy with their starring roles in their own tragedies

Sunlight sends you on your way
And those restless thoughts that cling to yesterday
Never be afraid of change
I'll call you on the phone
I hate to leave you on your own
But I'm coming home today

And this busy inner city
Has got nothing much to say
And I know how much you're hanging round the letterbox
And I'm sure that as I'm writing
You'll be somewhere on your way
In a supermarket checkout or the restaurant

I've been doing what I'm told
I've been busy growing old
And the days are getting cold but that's alright with me

Sunlight sends you on your way
And those restless thoughts that cling to yesterday
Never be afraid of change
I'll call you on the phone
I hate to leave you on your own
But I'm coming home today
Yes I'm coming home today

I've been doing what I'm told
I've been busy growing old
And the days are getting cold but that's alright with me

Sunlight sends you on your way
And those restless thoughts that cling to yesterday
Never be afraid of change

Counting The Days

Counting the days on the calendar
Strange how they bleed into each other
All that I need
Is a day with you
Pencil me in on your Saturday
Taking my leave
Should I be waylaid please wait for me

On a day with you
Maybe for now an hour will do
Remember my dear this time last year
The sunsets were late and the days were long
And the nights were filled with song
The nights were filled with song

Strolling the street we're strangely complete
Let's stay awake till the morning comes
We don't need anyone
We don't need anyone

Wasting my life at the traffic lights
Getting nowhere
Trapped in the turnstiles
Stay within reach
Of a day with you
Maybe for now and hour will do

Gravity

If gravity let us go
We would all go flying
And I'll meet you somewhere in the milky night
Away past the satellites

The breeze is dressed so lightly
And it breathes onto this fire escape
Where all our secrets melt like ice
Leaving only water

Night will close us down
And change the view
And I'll promise you what I can
I forget myself when I'm with you
Please remind me who I am

Dancing like a landslide
Swinging round the living room
We fall like sudden rain from sullen skies
Singing to the radio's tune

Say my name aloud
And make it new
And I'll promise you what I can
I forget myself when I'm with you
Please remind me who I am

Day so soon, hear all the traffic move
The sirens all fill this room till we both have to shout
From the road, watching the stars explode
You and I breathe so slow
How strange the sound

One More Cup Of Coffee

( Bob Dylan )

Your breath is sweet
Your eyes are like two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight, your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude or love
Your loyalty is not to me
But to the stars above

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
To the valley below

Your daddy he's an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade
He'll teach you how to pick and choose
And how to throw the blade
He oversees his kingdom
So no stranger does intrude
His voice it trembles as he calls out
For another plate of food

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
To the valley below

Your sister sees the future
Like your mama and yourself
You've never learned to read or write
There's no books upon your shelf
But your pleasure knows no limits
Your voice is like a meadowlark
And your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark

One more cup of coffee for the road
One more cup of coffee 'fore I go
To the valley below

Ne Me Quitte Pas

( Jacques Brel )

Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s'oublier
Qui s'enfuit déjà
Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment
Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le coeur du bonheur

Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Moi je t'offrirai
Des perles de pluie
Venues de pays
Où il ne pleut pas
Je creuserai la terre
Jusqu'après ma mort
Pour couvrir ton corps
D'or et de lumière
Je ferai un domaine
Où l'amour sera roi
Où l'amour sera loi
Où je serai reine

Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Je t'inventerai
Des mots insensés
Que tu comprendras
Je te parlerai
De ces amants-là
Qui ont vu deux fois
Leurs coeurs s'embraser
Je te raconterai
L'histoire de ce roi
Mort de n'avoir pas
Pu te rencontrer

Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

On a vu souvent
Rejaillir le feu
De l'ancien volcan
Qu'on croyait trop vieux
Il est paraît-il
Des terres brulées
Donnant plus de blé
Qu'un meilleur avril
Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu'un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s'épousent-ils pas

Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Je ne vais plus pleurer
Je ne vais plus parler
Je me cacherai là
A te regarder
Danser et sourire
Et à t'écouter
Chanter et puis rire
Laisse-moi devenir
L'ombre de ton ombre
L'ombre de ta main
L'ombre de ton chien

Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Anyone Who Had A Heart

( Burt Bacharach )

Anyone who ever loved
Could look at me
And know that I love you
Anyone who ever dreamed
Would look at me
And know I dream of you
Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in his arms and love me, too
You couldn't really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me and be so untrue
What am I to do

Every time you go away, I always say
This time it's goodbye , dear
Loving you the way I do
I take you back
Without you I'd die dear
Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in his arms and love me, too
You couldn't really have a heart
And hurt me like you hurt me and be so untrue
What am I to do

Knowing I love you so

Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in his arms and love me, too
You couldn't really have a heart and hurt me,
Like you hurt me and be so untrue
Anyone who had a heart would love me too
Anyone who had a heart would surely take me
In his arms and
Always love me
Why won't you

Anyone who had a heart would love me too
Anyone who had a heart would surely take me
In his arms and
Really love me
Why won't you

Anyone who had a heart would love me too
Anyone who had a heart would surely take me
In his arms and
Really love me
Why won't you

And No More Shall We Part

( Nick Cave )

And no more shall we part
It will no longer be necessary
And no more will I say, dear heart
I am alone and she has left me

And no more shall we part
The contracts are drawn up
The ring is locked upon the finger
And never again will my letters start
Sadly, or in the depths of winter

And no more shall we part
All the hatchets have been buried now
And all of birds will sing to your beautiful heart
Upon the bough

And no more shall we part
Your chain of command has been silenced now
And all of those birds would`ve sung to your beautiful heart
Anyhow

Lord, stay by me
Don`t go down
I will never be free
If I`m not free now

Lord, stay by me
Don`t go down
I never was free
What are you talking about?

For no more shall we part
And no more shall we part

Wishing On A Star

( Rose Royce )

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people who really dream
And I'm wishing on tomorrow, praying it'll comes
And I'm wishing on all the lovin' we've ever done

I never thought I'd see
A time when you would be
So far away from home
So far away from me

Just think of all the moments that we'd spent
I just can't let you go, for me you were meant
And I didn't mean to hurt you, but I know
That in the game of love you reap what you sow

I feel it's time we should make up, baby
I feel it's time for us to get back together
And make the best of things, oh, baby
When we're together, whether or never

I feel it's time we should make up, baby
I feel it's time for us to get back together
And make the best of things, oh, baby
When we're together, whether or never

I'm wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I'm wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people we've ever been
And I'm hopin' on all the days to come and days to go
And I'm hopin' on all the love that you've ever know

Wishing on a star
To follow where you are
Wishing on a star
Oh…oh…oh…
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see

Wishing on a star
To follow where you are
Wishing on a star
Oh...oh...oh...
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see

Wishing on a star

Stay After Me

Moon glove
Quite light will braze(?) your pillow
Loneliness leaves no shadow
Where did you go?

Cool now
Quietly up and leave you
Must I be the fool and leave you
The distance will grow

Love ends in a fire
Fire through the streets
Set them alive
Sadly say your goodbyes
Say after me
I wish you well
And maybe...

It's a crying shame
To have only hope as sorrow
To have no more days to borrow
Distance will grow

A new day
I'm walking cold and endless
All to be stoned and painless
I'm lost in the snow

Love ends in a fire
Fire through the streets
Set them alive
Sadly say your goodbyes
Say after me
I'll go my own way maybe ...

Race to the ground
I'll burn you down
Before you go and breake me

Burn like the sun
What has become
Of you and me
My baby ...

Birds

Winning Arrow

There is a love
There is a life that we share
Hand in glove
They won't separate us

Climb once again
Cast off your sorrows
The long night will end
Dance on the morning dew

Casting a line to you
Safe from a slinging arrow
Think of the love we knew
How it goes on

Five days of love
There is a scent in the air
Above & beyond
The one who named us

Climb once again
Cast off your sorrows
The long night will end
Won't get the best of you

Casting a line to you
Love is a winning arrow
Fire it straight and true to wherever you are

Casting a line to you
Love is a winning arrow
Fire it straight and true to wherever you are

Say After Me

Moon glow
White light will bathe your pillow
Loneliness leaves no shadow
Where did you go?

Be cool now
Quietly up and leave you
Must I be your fool and lead you
How gracious we go

Love ends in a fire
Fire through the streets
Set them alive
Don't say your goodbyes
Say after me
I'll go my own way baby, yeah

It's a crying shame
To have only hopeless sorrow
To have no more days to borrow
The distance will grow

A new day
Out walking cold and endless
All to be stoned and painless
I'm lost in the snow

Love ends in a fire
Fire through the streets
Set them alive
Don't say your goodbyes
Say after me
I'll wish you well then baby, yeah

Raise to the ground
I'll burn you down
Before you go and break me

Burn like the sun
What has become
Of you and me
My baby, yeah

Listen

Listen this stands to reason
Short as a season
In all you and i can be wrong
When you walk in to the room like a song
This can be wrong

Tender long as I living
I promise you this evening
And it's moving me along
But the day I wait from you is too long
Much much too long
Much much too long

And I guess i say it playing
With one in the same oh yeah
In the face of all that's change
We'll stay the same oh yeah

Last time I was mistaken
My face was shaken
My heart was never strong
But the fear inside is already gone
It's already gone
It's already gone

And I guess I say it playin'
With one in the same oh yeah
In the face of all that's change
We'll stay the same oh yeah

And I guess I say it straight
With one in the same oh yeah
The face of things that change
We'll stay the same oh yeah...

Birds

Take your time make peace with the day
Lying on the ground and cold feet
And never mind what people will say
Talking is thoughtless and cheep

I only said it to be kind
I won't pretend to be naive
And thoughts arrive like leaves on the page
Trying and hoping to be

You and I like birds in a cage
Dreaming how once we were free

The evening closes on the wire
I saw you hiding in the eeves
Don't leave me hanging all the while
A shadow underneath the trees

I only want you to be mine
I only want you to be free
If either on of us is right
It must be sealed to be believed

I only want you to be mine
I only want you to be free

Ruby Nights

The last that I saw
With eyes filled with rain
A waterfall of gold
It flickered on his face
Flickered on his face

He rode to the summit
And waited at the bridge
I waved him goodbye
He vanished over the ridge
Vanished over the ridge

My face to the heavens
I waited for a sign
But only cloudy demons
Were circling in the sky
Circling in the sky

I cried to the river
I cried to the rain
I begged the ruby night
To bring my love again
Bring my love again

The calling of the tune
The sowing of the sun
Into the ruby night
Again we will be one
Again we will be one

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

No crying no more

I met my darling last night
I'd never seen him before
He put his warm hand in mine
There'll be no crying, no more

And in a flutter of bees
And in a whisper of trees
I've never seen him before
There'll be no crying, no more

There is no rest for the wicked
No blues like before
Our spell's been lifted
Just like a baby born once more

On other side of the street
The flowers bloom where we meet
I'd never seen him before
There'll be no crying, no more
There'll be no crying, no more
There'll be no crying, no more 

If I Had You

If I had you
What in the world could be better
A crazy love that waits for you
Why must it wait forever

If I had you
Key to a hidden treasure
A ruby heart that hides from you
Don't hide for long

'Cos in the warm, warm night
Does nothing stir your cold, cold heart
There's not a thing that I couldn't do to belong

Oh, oh, oh darling, in the night
I ask the good Lord in Heaven
Please show me what love can do
I couldn't care for more

If I had you
What in the world could be better
A crazy love that waits for you
Why must it wait forever

If I had you
To be ever so close together
One safe love to shelter you
And tender loving arms

'Cause in the warm, warm night
Does nothing stir your cold, cold heart
There's not a thing that I couldn't do to belong

Oh, oh, oh darling, in the night
I ask the good Lord in Heaven
Please show me what love can do
I couldn't care for more
All what love can do
I couldn't care for more
All that love can do
I couldn't care for more

Captured

I want you when you are close to me
I want you never to be far
I know you have laid a trap for me
Yes, I know you, but not as who you are

Black on the ground, I am still as a stone
Whatever changed my love to despair
Light through the clouds trapped the scent of a soul
In a moment, my love, I am captured, captured

I want you when you are close to me
I want you never to be far
I know you have laid a trap for me
Yes, I know you, but not as who you are

Black on the ground, I am still as a stone
Whatever changed my love to despair
Light through the clouds trapped the scent of a soul
In a moment, my love, I am captured, captured

Whatever changes love to despair
In a moment, my love, I am captured, captured

That's Alright

It brings you down
It gets the better of you
She's not around
And yet it stays with you
Nobody told you
It was a waste of time

You're heading home
Through all the streets you know
You're on your won
Don't wanna be alone
Nobody holds you tonight

That's alright
That's alright just
Take your time to find
What it is you're looking for

That's alright
That's alright just
Hold it out a little more
You'll know when you start to fall

And though you say that it's okay with you
Although today has run away from you
I won't believe you tonight

That's alright
That's alright just
Take your time to find
What it is you're looking for

That's alright
That's alright just
Hold it out a little more
Nothing matters more when you're in love
No
You're not in love, no
Not in love
Alright, alright...

You're not in love, no
You're not in love, no
Not in love
You're not in love
Not in love
You're not in love

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

Blue, blue heart

Minute you wake from a bad day dream
Alone, as the bird play dawn
A little chink from my reverie
It pulls at my blue, blue heart

Ooh la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

So you said you were leaving
But I don't feel a thing at all
'Til the ghost of your memory
Beats drums down every hall

Ooh la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

Find us down on memory street
How long since you've been gone
(Already gone)
Like some forgotten dream
Pinned to my blue, blue heart
(Already gone).

Something quite extraordinary
I don't feel a thing at all
People come for miles to see
The girl with the blue, blue heart

Ooh la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

Find us down on memory street
How long since you've been gone
(Already gone)
Like some forgotten dream
Pinned to my blue, blue heart
(Already gone).
If I loved you endlessly
How could we be wrong
Where did we go wrong

Something quite extraordinary
My soul jumped to a start
Blood to the extremeties
Runs cold from my blue, blue heart

Ooh la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

(Already gone)
(Already gone)

If I loved you endlessly
How could we be wrong
Where did we go wrong

It's over

Everything that we make
Has long been overrun
Thought our love could be safe
But know now I was wrong

I tried and tried and tried again
'Cause honey now
I had a long day in the sun

And baby now it's over
And nothing can be done
And nothing can be done

I cried and cried and cried again
I swore you were the one
But baby now it's over
And nothing can be done
And nothing can be done

So run and tell your mamma
And run and tell your friends
But baby now it's over
And this is where it ends

I cried and cried and cried again

Honey now it's over
And nothing can be done
And nothing can be done

Try To Remember Everything

All Fall Down

Daylight, let it stir you
Let it Kiss the sleep out from your eyes
Feel this weight now, lift into the sky now
On and on and on
On and on and on
Cradle, so deeply
So sleeply when I close my eyes
Sprinkle morning all over you and I
On and on and on
On and on and on

Sleep tonight
Drains into the morning
Let it feel alright
It beckons like a warning

Trace it, embrace it
See it crashing through this pretty light
And yes you know me and how this thing of ours goes
On and on and on
On and on and on

Sleep tonight
Drains into the morning
Let it feel alright
It beckons like a warning

Sleep tonight
Drains into the morning
Let it feel alright
It beckons like a warning 

And when we touch the ground
We all fall down

The Daily Grind

The newspaper's already old
Now as the day unfolds
Wasting my lazy bones
Sleeping all day

While I believe in design
Still fond of wasting time
Don't let the daily grind
?? you away

Take you time and relax
Don't break the dreaming
Don't do anything rush
Just let the day linger on

All through the week ??
Shift like a shapeless sky
Don't let the daily grind
?? you away

Take you time and relax
Don't break the dreaming
Don't do anything rush
Just let the day linger on
Let the day live long

The newspaper's already old
Now as the day unfolds
Wasting my lazy bones
Sleeping all day

Gracie

Gracie takes the bottles from the porch where you have left them
They are age old drinks of wine and wishin'
Drivin' down the monorail with all the best intentions
She's a picture of perfection with her cotton colored hair
But its you she thinks of in the hours while she's awake
She takes her lipstick from her kleenex to make a smile
You she thinks of when she thinks of her mistakes
Regrets an open road that stretches out for miles
Coffee pots and bottles cups and all of this disorder
She soaks her plates in the dishwater till its cold
Her reflection in the windows of the stars around the corner
Walk beside her while she's striding down the road

But its you she thinks of in the hours while she's awake
She takes her lipstick from her kleenex to make a smile
You thinks of when she thinks of her mistakes
Regrets an open road that stretches out for miles

la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la

You she thinks of in the hours while shes awake
She takes her lipstick from her kleenex to make a smile
You thinks of when she thinks of her mistakes
Regrets an open road that stretches out for miles

A Day Like Today

( Something Good EP )

Lala lala-la
Lala lala-la
Lala lala-la

Lala lala-la
Lala lala-la
Lala lala-la

There's nothing like a cool autumn breeze
Sending the past up with the leaves
Watching all the clothes on the line
In a sidestepping dance
With the neighbouring trees

Lala lala-la
Lala lala-la
Lala lala-la

There's nothing like an echoing hole
A headrush of sky
A knock at the door
A message on your voicemail tonight
The answering-machine taking the calls

It's an honest mistake
Falling in love
At any given time
We could get carried away
It could've happen to anyone

On a day like today
A day like today
On a day like today
Day like today

Day like today
On a day like today
A day like today

There's nothing like a cool autumn breeze
Sending the past up with the leaves
Watching all the clothes on the line
In a sidestepping dance
With the neighbouring trees

It's an honest mistake
Falling in love
At any given time
We could get carried away
It could've happen to anyone

On a day like today
A Day like today
On a day like today
Day like today

Day like today
On a day like today
A day like today

Strangers Again

The way that it stands
I can't hold you
The way that it stands
I don't even know you

We're strangers again
How does it happens after all the time we spent
Strangers again
Now we're waiting for our time to come again
Strangers again
Facing the sad sunrise
Rising, rising

Don't let go my hand
Don't try to freeze me
Don't let go my hand
I want you to seize me

We're lovers again
And when it happens I don't want the night to end
Lovers again
Now we're waiting for our time to come again
Lovers again
Facing the sad sunrise
Rising, rising

Let's spend some time together
Not seeking pain or pleasure
Just killing time together
Tonight

We're strangers again
And when it happens all you know I can't pretend
Strangers again
Now we're waiting for our time to come again
Strangers again
Facing the sad sunrise
Rising, rising

Autumn leaves

( Lyrics by Johnny Mercer / Music by Joseph Kosma )

The autumn leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winters song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winters song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Somethings Gotten Hold Of My Heart

( Greenway/Cook )

Something's gotten hold of my heart
Keeping my soul and my senses apart
Something's gotten into my life
Cutting its way, my dreams like a knife
Turning me up, turning me down
Making me smile, making me frown

In a world that was small, I once lived in a time
That was peace with no trouble at all
Then you came my way
And a feeling unknown shook my heart made me want you to stay
All of my nights, and all of my days

Yeah I wanna tell you that something's gotten hold of my hand
Dragging my soul to a beautiful land
Yeah, something has invaded my night
Painting my sleep with a colour so bright
Changing the grey, changing the blue
Scarlet for me and scarlet for you

I've got to know if this is the real thing
I've got to know what's making my heart sing, oh oh
You smile and then I'm lost for a lifetime
Each minute spent with you is the right time
Every hour, every day yeah
You touch me and my mind goes astray yeah
And baby, yeah

Something's gotten hold of my heart
Keeping my soul and my senses apart
Something has invaded my night
Painting my sleep with a colour so bright
Changing the grey, changing the blue
Scarlet for me and scarlet for you

Dust

Blades of grass
That shiver as I pass
The world's asleep but I'm awake
I'm walking home home again
Morning stars
Left my shoes back at the bar
Didn't know my house was quite so far
So far from anywhere

Strange how the ground
Seems up-side down
And morning - it starts without me
Did I let you down
Should I come around
Would that make things better baby

You and I
We get along just fine
But oh, we both want to be right
It's just not possible

Change your mind
Or maybe I'll change mine
But either way we won't arrive
At something plausible

I'll see you 'round
When you're in town
And you can pretend to hate me
All trace of love
Has turned to dust
Which I've been collecting lately

Everyone Must Love

When there is fear
Here in your heart
Gone is the summer sun
Everyone must love someone

When you're at sea
Long is the night
How can the moon be real
Everyone must love

Yeah sometimes there's only pain and sorrow
And the stars are dead and gone
Yes you'll find
There's always be tomorrow
And everyone must love someone
Yes everyone must love someone

Close The Door, Put Out The Light

Close the door, put out the light
Come sleep till tomorrow comes creeping
Talk some more, till I grow tired
Don't leave till you know that I'm sleeping
Don't say goodbye, just slide away into the dark
And take with you my heart

Close the door, put out the light
Come sleep till tomorrow comes creeping
Down the hall they're talking lies
Don't speak of the troubles you're keeping

Don't fall behind, just know that everything is fine
Knowing that you're mine

Close the door, put out the light
This day leaves me tired and heavy
Waking hours will always fall away
When you feel you're ready

Don't say goodbye, just slide away into the dark
And take with you my heart

Belle

Tiny Little Piece Of My Heart

You thought you'd blown out my candle
Cause I cried so much then
I just pretend
You only took a tiny little piece of my heart

I had to find a good reason
Just to crawl out of bed
Now I've fixed my head
You only took a tiny little piece of my heart

It's such a shame
The way you flatter yourself
Shoo fly, take your tiny little piece with you

Oh please your sorry excuses
Are a dollar for ten
So go tell your friends
That you only took a tiny little piece of my heart

It's such a shame
The way you flatter yourself
Shoo fly, take your tiny little piece with you

I wonder why
Why you had to take my loving
And leave me dry
Just turn your back and keep on running

Oh please your sorry excuses
Are a dollar for ten
So go tell your friends
That you only took a tiny little piece of my heart
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It's such a shame
The way you flatter yourself
You only took a tiny little piece of my heart
A tiny little piece of my heart
A tiny little piece of my heart
A tiny little piece of it

Hello Hello

Hello hello
I'm coming down the wire
I know, I know
You think that I'm a liar
But I'll be home
And soon my darling you'll be here with me

I draw the blinds
And make a cup of coffee
Across the line
I know you tried to stop me
But truth be known
A man will always be his own worst enemy

Don't be so shy
I thought I made it clear
How could you even dare to ask me why
It's easy to try
I'm waiting here for you
The last thing I want to do is say goodbye
Don't tell me hello hello
When everything you say sounds like goodbye

I call again
At seven in the evening
To say we're friends
But friends sounds so misleading
Everything we've known
Might as well be thrown into the sea
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Don't be so shy
I thought I made it clear
How could you even dare to ask me why
It's easy to try
I'm waiting here for you
The last thing I want to do is say goodbye
Don't tell me hello hello
When everything you say sounds like goodbye

It's easy to try
I'm waiting here for you
The last thing I want to do is say goodbye
Don't tell me hello hello
When everything you say sounds like goodbye
Don't tell me hello hello
When everything you say sounds like goodbye

If You Really Do

Love me
If you really do
It's never black or white
But every day we try
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Love me
If you really do
If it's written in the stars
Why does it have to be so hard
Oh, oh, oh, oh

My mind is made knowing tomorrow
The road is not so long
To get back where we belong
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I can't speak, darling, for you
But the river's not so wide
To reach the other side
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Love me
If you only knew
What it means to be alone
And everything that we have known
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
My mind is made knowing tomorrow
The road is not so long
To get back where we belong
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I can't speak, darling, for you
But the river's not so wide
To reach the other side
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Love me
If you really do
If you really do
If you really do

This Girl's Prepared For War

All the nights I spend, waiting
Time moves so slow
Leaning on my friends, complaining
Why it's so hard

This girl's prepared for war
And as for love, who knows what it's good for
Except for crying yourself to sleep at night
And for blowing down, your little heart
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Staring at your face, wondering
What went wrong
I cannot pretend, to be playing
Anymore

This girl's prepared for war
And as for love, who knows what it's good for
Except for crying yourself to sleep at night
And for blowing down, your little heart

This girl's prepared for war
And as for love, who knows what it's good for
Except for crying yourself to sleep at night
And for blowing down, your little heart

Everything Is Beautiful And New

I see houses filled with coloured light
Trees and mountains bowing to the sky
I can tell my loneliness to you
Everything is beautiful and new

Clouds like horses rushing at the sea
Grasses leaning, learning to be free
Things that left me puzzled in my youth
Everything is beautiful and new
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Everything is beautiful and new
Things I've seen, I know this to be true
I can tell my happiness to you
Everything is beautiful and new

I see harbours filled with coloured sails
Crowds of people smile about their way
Nothing can be honoured but the truth
Everything is beautiful and new

Everything is beautiful and new
Things I've seen, I know this to be true
I can tell my happiness to you
Everything is beautiful and new

Good Love

Deadbeats in the hall
Lost souls in the back room
Where do I find a good love
Looking out for a good love
Where do I find a good love round here

Rich men want to own you
Find a way to control you
But how do I find a good love
Looking for things I shouldn't of
Has anybody got a good love right here

Oh, I think I'd know by now
I should know by now
How do I find a good love

Oh, could it be one day now
Is it one day now
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love

Running scared from yourself
Waiting out on a bad moon
But is there still time for good love
Would you recognise a good love, good love
If even by chance a good love found you
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh, I think I'd know by now
I should know by now
How do I find a good love
Oh, could it be one day now

Is it one day now
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love
Ooh, ooh, ooh

How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love

How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love, good love
How do I find a good love

How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love
How do I find a good love

Devil On Tambourine

Falling free
An opportunity
A place to get away
A holiday

Lucky me
I've made an enemy
I've made one, two or three
Lucky me

Suddenly I could hear the harmony
Beneath the apple tree
Violent eyes that fire apple green
Devil on tambourine

Quietly
A serpent follows me
To make an offering
I can't refuse

Suddenly I could hear the harmony
Beneath the apple tree
Violent eyes that fire apple green
Devil on tambourine
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Falling free
An opportunity
A place to get away
A holiday

Lucky me
I've made an enemy
I've made one, two or three
Lucky me

Suddenly I could hear the harmony
Beneath the apple tree
Violent eyes that fire apple green
Devil on tambourine

Belle

Belle, tu es si belle
Qu'en te voyant je t'ai aimée
Belle, que j'aime tant
Depuis longtemps je t'attendais
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Souviens-toi du temps où tu venais
Chaque soir pour me rencontrer
Tu passais si belle que j'en rêvais
Tu le sais, mon amie, je t'aimais

Belle, oh ma si belle
Tu t'en allais sans m'écouter
Belle je t'attendrai
Pendant longtemps, tu es si belle
Belle que j'aime tant
Je t'attendrai en te rêvant

Puis un jour, un jour tu passeras
Près de moi, ma belle tu viendras
Nous ferons alors si tu le veux
Ce jour-là le beau voyage à deux

Belle si tu le veux
Nous serons deux
Nous serons deux

Darkness All Around Us

It's time to sleep and walk out
It's far too late to talk about
We took a night of absence now
We walk among the town

At dawn a mist approaches
There's not a soul to speak of
It's time to change the map now
And sail upon the seas
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
A storyteller told me
There's darkness all around us
The darkness all around me said
“It's not just in your head”

A storyteller told me
There's darkness all around us
The darkness all around me said
“It's not just in your head”

Music And Light

Love's a walk on a wire
I tripped on the stairs
Makes you feel like a fool
If you're not aware
And it may not be wise to show how you feel
And it may not be what I thought to be real
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Dance your way to my room
I need you to stay
It sends my head in a ruin
When you look my way
And I wake to the sound of songs in the street
There's music and light in all that I see

If you've got a love
Then you won't want to hesitate
If you really want
Maybe the whole world will stop and wait
There's music and light
Feels like the sun in my eyes

Dance your way to my room
I need you to stay
We can make up the rules
I hear what you say
I don't care much to talk of how things should be
There's music and light in all that we see

If you've got a love
Maybe you won't want to hesitate
If you really want
Maybe the whole world will stop and wait
There's music and light
Feels like the sun in my eyes
It's blinding and bright
Just like the sun in my eyes

Close Your Eyes

Close Your Eyes

Close your eyes
Goddess everywhere at once
Don't you realize
We are the luckiest ones

Dress so fine
People wonder who we are
And heaven is all mine
Wonder whenever we are

Day after day
I still want you, want you
Night after night
I still want you, want
copy paste robots kill the internet
Close your eyes
People think the craziest thoughts
But we should never mind
We'll do whatever we want

Dressed so fine
He'll disarm a wounded heart
The world is much too wide
I can not bear when we part

Day after day
I still want you, want you
Night after night
I still want you, want

Day after day
I still want you, want you
Night after night
I still want you, want

Close your eyes
Goddess everywhere at once
Don't you realize
We are the luckiest ones

What'cha Say

(The Meters)

Keeping my mind to the sky
Watching the clouds pass me by, by
Soaring ever so high
And I can't come down

This way to go where to turn
Passing more time just to burn, burn
Keeping if I should turn
Straight to your heart

Follow my steps I'm delayed
Selfishness always betray
Sometimes there must be a change
And I changed
copy paste robots kill the internet
If I think of a way to express my love
Would you think of a way to receive
If I gave you myself for the rest of my days
Would you promise never to leave

Keep on, keep on, get high
On your love
Keep on, keep on, get high
On your love
Keep on, keep on, get high
On your love
Keep on, keep on, get high
On your love

Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say
Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say
Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say
Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say

Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say
Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say
Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say
Hey, hey, hey
What'cha, what'cha say

Hey, hey, hey

Wolves

(Kanye West)

Lost out, beat up
Dancin', down there
I found you, somewhere out
'Round 'round there, right right there

Lost and beat up
Down there, dancin'
I found you, somewhere out
Right down there, right 'round there

Lost and, found out
Turned out, how you thought
Daddy, found out
How you turned out, how you turned out

If mama knew now
How you turned out, you too wild
You too wild, you too wild
You too wild and I need you now
copy paste robots kill the internet
Don't fool yourself
Your eyes don't lie, you're much too good to be true
Don't fire fight
Yeah, I feel you burning, everything's burning

Don't fly too high
Your wings might melt, you're much too good to be true
I'm just bad for you
I'm just bad, bad, bad for you

I was lost and beat up
Turned out, burned up
You found me, through a heartache
Didn't know me, you were drawn in

I was lost and beat up
I was warm flesh, unseasoned
You found me, in your gaze
I found you, oh Jesus

I was too wild, I was too wild
I was too wild, I was too wild
I was too wild, I was too wild
And I need you now

Things Behind the Sun

(Nick Drake)

Please beware of them that stare
They'll only smile to see you while
Your time away

When you've seen what they have been
To win the earth just won't seem worth
Your night or your day
Who'll hear what I say?

Look around you'll find the ground
Is not so far from where you are
But don't be too wise

For down below they never grow
They're always tired and charms are hired
From out of their eyes
It's no surprise
copy paste robots kill the internet
Take your time and you'll be fine
And say a prayer for people there
Who live on the floor

And if you see what's meant to be
Don't name the day or try to say
It happened before

Don't be shy you learn to fly
And see the sun when day is done
If only you see

Just what you are beneath a star
That came to stay one rainy day
In autumn for free
Yes, be what you'll be

Open up the broken cup
Let goodly sin and sunshine in
Yes that's today

And open wide the hymns you hide
You find renown while people frown
At things that you say
But say what you'll say

About the farmers and the fun
And the things behind the sun
And the people in your head
Who say everything's been said
And the movement in your brain
Sends you out into the rain

Tinseltown in the Rain

(The Blue Nile)

Why did we ever come so far
I knew I'd seen it all before
Tall buildings reach up in vain
Tinseltown is in the rain
I know now love was so exciting

Tinseltown in the rain, all men and women
Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm
copy paste robots kill the internet
One day this love will all blow over
Time for leaving the parade
Is there a place in this city
A place to always feel this way
And hey, there's a red car in the fountain

Tinseltown in the rain, all men and women
Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

Do I love you? Yes, I love you
Will we always be happy go lucky
Do I love you? Yes, I love you
But it's easy come and it's easy go
All this talking is only bravado

Tinseltown in the rain, all men and women
Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

Tinseltown in the rain, all men and women
Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

(Roberta Flack)

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command
copy paste robots kill the internet
And the first time ever I laid with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And it would last 'til the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face

Andmoreagain

(Love)

And if you'll see Andmoreagain
Then you will know Andmoreagain
For you will see you in her eyes
Then you feel your heart beating
Pum-pum-pum-pum

And when you've given all you had
And everything still turns out
Bad, and all your secrets are your own
Then you feel your heart beating
Pum-pum-pum-pum
copy paste robots kill the internet
And I'm wrapped in my armor
But my things are material
And I'm lost in confusions
'Cause my things are material

And you don't know how much I love you
Oh, oh, oh...

And if you'll see Andmoreagain
Then you will be Andmoreagain
For you just wish and you're up here
Then you feel your heart beating
Pum-pum-pum-pum

And I'm wrapped in my armor
But my things are material
And I'm lost in confusions
'Cause my things are material

And you don't know how much I love you
Oh, oh, oh...

Viens

(Francoise Hardy)

Viens, viens au port comme un navire
Et tu sauras d'où repartir
Quand tu voudras t'en aller

Viens mon coeur a toujours tout donné
Je me suis bien souvent brûlée
Mais je n'ai pas peur de souffrir

Viens s'il m'arrive de mentir
C'est que dans mes souvenirs
Sommeille un oiseau blessé
copy paste robots kill the internet
Viens moi qui déjà ai tout détruit
Blessé tant de gens dans ma vie
Je ne crains plus la vérité

Viens comme une bombe exploser
Je n'ai jamais laissé passer
Une guerre sans y entrer

Viens et fait que tout soit terminé
Lorsque tu devras t'en aller
Moi je pourrai mieux t'oublier
Oh viens, oh viens, oh viens, oh viens


Dream a dream

I dreamed a dream
Oh was it real
When all that I can do
To wipe the wrong inside my mind
I dreamed a dream of you
copy paste robots kill the internet
For ??? against my ear
The sea and sky so blue
A paradise inside my mind
I dreamed a dream of you

Remember when you held my hand
A moment gone so soon
And when you're far I bring you near
I dreamed a dream of you


The Lonely Sea

(The Beach Boys)

The lonely sea
The lonely sea
It never stops
For you or me
It moves along
From day to day
copy paste robots kill the internet
That's why my love
That's why my love
You'll never stay
You'll never stay

You're like the lonely sea
Sea
The lonely sea
Lonely sea
Lonely sea
Lonely sea

Life Will Get Better Some Day

(The Mint Chicks)

Go to school, dream away
Life will get better some day
Go to work, slave away
Life will get better some day

When you're well on your way
If you drown all your sorrows
In a tall glass of ale
They'll come back, double fall

So drown all your washing in an old rusty ???
And when you breathe don't inhale
Life will get better some day
copy paste robots kill the internet
So sit on your high horse and never look down
As long as you don't make a sound
But how can we hear if nobody's listening
Yeah hills (?) have been looked and they've thrown away the key

Now you're well on your way
Life will get better some day

Only Love Can Break Your Heart

(Neil Young)

When you were young and on your own
How did it feel to be alone
I was always thinking of games that I was playing
Trying to make the best of my time

But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Someone should call him and see if he can come out
Try to lose the down that he's found
copy paste robots kill the internet
But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Yes, only love can break your heart
Yes, only love can break your heart
Yes, only love can break your heart
Yes, only love can break your heart
Yes, only love can break your heart

Non Albums tracks

Ashes To Ashes

( David Bowie cover )

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no, don't say it's true

They got a message from the Action Man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed love
Sordid details following"

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and
I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to quit but this planet it's glowing
Glowing, glowing, glowing, glowing, glowing, glowing...

Ashes to ashes, fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
I'm happy, hope you're happy too
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I've never done good things
I've never done bad things
I've never done anything out of the blue, woh oh oh...
I want an axe to break the ice
I wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

My mama said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mama said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mama said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mama said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

Banana's In The Mist

(Pluto feat. Bic Runga / Red Light Syndrome LP)

Sweat suffocate
Got to pack, pack, pack it all in
Bend your knees two, three, four
Breath in, breath out and then
Grab your partners
And pull them on out to the floor
'Cause we can never step out
If we think of love

Oh no, it's out of the question
If I choke, would you give me a mention
The point is sharp
It's just a little off centred
Oh bang my head
You won't knock me out
Won't knock me out

Here comes banana
And he's holding up a big mellow sign
Fruits of the world unite
And stop the smothie inquisition
I see more sex in fruit
Than music played in this time
One more division
In the crackpot hollow chime

Oh no, it's out of the question
If I choke, would you give me a mention
The point is sharp
It's just a little off centred
Oh no, it's out of the question
If I choke, would you give me a mention
Oh bang my head
You won't knock me out

I own you here
I own you here
I own you here
I own you here
I own you here

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

Good morning baby

( Duet with Dan Wilson of Semisonic )

Between an overload of information
And a striving for a pure dedication I
Find myself looking for the exit sign
See your pretty face in the sunshine
In the morning after staying up all night I
Want to wake you just to hear you
Tell me it's alright
And all I want to be is too much
Sometimes for me
Good morning baby
I hope I'm gonna make it through another day
Good morning baby
I hope I'm gonna make it through another day
See the stars and all the planets
Fly the great wide world and have it all
Yeah better get a ticket better get in line
I'm praying now for beautiful weather
Take a car and drive forever but I'm
Only ever sitting at the traffic light
And all the world to see is too much
Sometimes for me
Good morning baby
I hope I'm gonna make it through another day
Good morning baby
I hope we're gonna make it through another day
(And when you rise)
And when you rise you'll find me here
(Open your eyes)
And see myself reflected there
(And for awhile)
A little room becomes an everywhere

I don't mean it

Don't make me laugh
I'm not sure I feel it now
Believe in a reason
Straight from your heart
What you gonna tell your friends
When they ask you about it

I guess that's alright
I'll say that I don't mind
And I say it all the time
I don't mean it

Don't even start
I'm not even listening now
No feeling no healing
Straight from your heart
What you gonna tell your friends
When they ask you about it

I guess thats alright
I'll say that I don't mind
And I say it all the time

I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it

I guess that's alright
I'll say that I don't mind
And I say it all the time

I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I guess thats alright
I'll say that I don't mind
And I say it all the time
I don't mean it
I guess that's alright
I'll say that I don't mind
And I say it all the time
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it
I don't mean it

Lonely lola cherry cola girl

Lonely Lola cherry cola girl
How much do they pay you for your smile?
Alone in your own creaming soda world
Maybe you were happy for a while
Lola you're a star tonight
Don't let them pluck you from the sky
Lonely Lola everybody knows
Everybody calls themselves your friend
But later on tonight when it gets cold
Lola who's (ah) gonna hold you then?
There's something in your eyes tonight
Forget them and take it in your stride

My friends told me 'bout how you've been gettin' out
But no-one seems to know your name
Slide on through the crowd and let them talk aloud
They only want to hold ya
Do they really know ya Lola?

So you say you're Lonely, Lola, sure
Everybody gets that way sometimes
But Lonely Lola you could know the cure
Wait it out and Lola, you'll be fine
It's easy if you try tonight
Don't sit there and keep on asking 'Why?'

My friends told me 'bout how you've been gettin' out
But no-one seems to know your name
Slide on through the crowd and let them talk aloud
They only want to hold ya
Do they really know ya Lola?

Lola you're on fire tonight
Don't sit there and keep on asking 'Why?'

My friends told me 'bout how you've been gettin' out
But no-one seems to know your name
Slide on through the crowd and let them talk aloud
They only want to hold ya
Do they really know ya Lola?

Do they really know you Lola? x4

Love Is The Law

( Paul Kelly feat. Bic Runga / Nothing But A Dream LP )

Love is the law
Love is the law

Though I speak in tongues of angels
And in many tongues of men
Though prophecy may sing through me
Without love I'm nothing

Though I understand all mysteries
And can see the story's end
Though my faith can move mountains
Without love I'm nothing

Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love

You may give away your riches
Do good deeds in the sight of men
You may be strong against temptation
But without love you're nothing

Without love you're just useless
Without love you're living in hell
Without love you're so hollow
An empty horn, a clanging bell

Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love

Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love

Bic Runga:
Love can suffer hardship
Love is tough and kind
Love is never envious
Or puffed up with pride

Love is always truthful
Love is never stale
Love is always hopeful
And never dreams that it can fail

Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love
Love is the law, the law is love
The law is love
The law is love
The law is love
The law is love

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

Making a scene

Making a scene, I'm coming clean
Thought I'd like to put you in your place
My drink in your face
Would it look so bad
And now, I'll live this down
Let me know if I'm talking much too loud
Or drawing a crowd
I don't mind if you don't mind
I'd like to see you
I'd like to take you on

Now I can't go wrong
Your thumb's been in my path for much too long
Now I'm feeling strong
And I will speak my mind

I'd like to see you
I'd like to take you on
Take you on
I'd like to see you
I'd like to take you on
Take you on

Ordinary girl

I'm just an ordinary
Same old, nothing new
I can tell you ordinary
Same old, nothing things

Say something funny
Or say something smart
Say something clever
I would but you know I can't

I've got no intellectual inspiration
Wish I had some entertaining things
That I could say

Say something funny
Or say something smart
Say something clever
I would but you know I can't 

I'm just an ordinary
Same old, nothing me
You know my eloquence is not quite
What it used to be

Say something funny
Or say something smart
Say something clever
I would but you know I can't 

I would if I only could but you know I can't

Over & Done

( Marshmallow feat. Bic Runga / Marshmallow LP )

I tried - yes I tried
But you led my up the garden path
And I cried - yes I cried
I cried enough tears to fill the bath

And I know - yes I know
That I'm better off on my own
And I go - yes I go
To the supermarket all alone now

I'm not in love anymore
I've closed the door
And I'm not coming in
No I'm not in love anymore
I was before
But it's over and done

I'm sad - yes I'm sad
But it's better to be safe than sorry
I'm glad - yes I'm glad
To fall in love again , well I'm in no hurry.

I'm not in love anymore
I've closed the door
And you're not coming in
No I'm not in love anymore
I was before
But it's over and done

It's over and done
Even though we had some fun
It's over and done
And now there's nowhere else to run
It's over and done
Your love is like a loaded gun
And I'm wounded
Yes I'm wounded

I'm not in love anymore
I've closed the door
And you're not coming in
No I'm not in love anymore
I was before
But it's over and done

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

Snow

( Marshmallow feat. Bic Runga / Marshmallow LP )

She's always so well behaved
So softly spoken
Rules were meant to be obeyed
And never broken
And she would have you believe
That from head to toe
She's pure, pure, pure as the driven snow

She is always so refined
So prim and proper
But when she makes up her mind
Nothing can stop her
Did you see her polishing
Her new halo?
Pure, pure, pure as the driven snow

Do you remember how it felt
When the snow began to melt?
Do you remember what you saw
When the ice began to thaw?

Now you know that butter wouldn't melt in her mouth
If only you could rid yourself of this nagging doubt
You've got to let go man
You could be her snowman
The wind is gonna blow
Pure as the driven snow
Pure as the driven snow
Pure as the driven snow

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

Stick With It

(Pluto feat. Bic Runga / Red Light Syndrome LP)

Oh yeah
Welcome
It's red light syndrome

Old bones made me cynical
About the others in Vanity Street
In 525 at 7:15
I caught the end of her show
She was dancing obscene
To the entertainment lawyer
With pockets of sweets, she said
Oh come on sugar

No one comes here anymore to Vanity Street
There's a buzz the owners have fallen out of their trees

Stick with it
Oh my, I'm stuck with it
Stick with it (just stick with it)
Oh my, I'm stuck with it
Oh yeah

Love is a reflection
Of what you're guaranteed to lose
The drugs, there's a suggestion
But some things ain't so easy to use

No one comes here anymore to Vanity Street
There's a word the ocean has turned and is heading upstream

Stick with it
Oh my, I'm stuck with it
Stick with it (stick with it)
Oh my, I'm stuck with it
Stick with it
Oh my, I'm stuck with it
Stick with it
Oh my, I'm stuck with it

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

Take it out sometimes

Wide, wider than the cut that's through my pride
That I'm locked inside a box
and I will hide under my bed
so I can take it out sometimes
Be, all I want to be
but do I see that I'm only half a person
All i need is a good night's sleep
you know, I stay awake sometimes

Say, what you're trying to say
are you afraid that I'm not listening anyway
so do you wait till you can get it out straight
do you think of me sometimes?
is it more than just sometims when I'm down

So do you wait till you can get it out straight
Do you know all these things I've got to say

Do you think of me sometimes
Is it more than just sometims when I'm down

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

( Paul Kelly cover / Women At The Well - Songs of Paul Kelly LP )

The gift that keeps on giving
Has come into my house
Like a wild deer at my doorway
He was suddenly so close

The beams are made of cedar wood
The rafters made of fir
The garden holds a fountain
Honeycomb and myrrh

I went along the broadways
Looking for my love
I asked among the watchmen
Have you seen my love

I promise not to wake him sisters
Let him sleep this time
He comforts me with apples
Suckers me with wine

Holy night
Blessed daylight
You are my true delight

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

Welcome to my kitchen

Welcome to my kitchen, I will just about be dishin'
What as much as you can take
Scoop my heart into a plate
Step into the light and my eyes are opened wide
Let me flash at you a smile that I've been practising a while
As much as you can take
If I fall of the stage will you feel fully entertained?
Well I really don't mind if you're not listening
I could be myself, I could be somebody else
There's a million other people I'd rather be
But it's much, too much, too late

All welcome tonight
Hope you're feeling alright
I could be cornering myself
Out here in a daze
Don't believe what I say
I'm full of promises

I should be alone, you know I should have stayed at home
But these butterflies inside, they wanna take me for a ride
It's over pretty quickly
Still, it makes me feel quite sickly
And I hope that you don't mind you know I do this all the time
I often wonder why...

All welcome tonight
Hope you're feeling alright
I could be cornering myself
Out here in a daze
Don't believe what I say
I'm full of promises 

La la la la la hope you're feeling alright
All welcome tonight...
Hope you're feeling alright

You

It's now become the saddest story
I was never worth the worry
Not that you would notice anyway
But when I'm walking in my sleep
The floor is cold beneath my feet
And as I step
You're with me everyday

You, oh you
You've gone and started something
That you won't see through
You, oh you
You've got this thing about what should be coming true
He was a friend
Things were different then
Either way I have to lose
And now it seems
There is a distance between
What you say and what you do

You're steps will always lead me here
I've found myself in God knows where
It's something I will always seem to do

You know you'll ask me how I've been
But what exactly do you mean
What would you like for me to say to you?

You, oh you
You've gone and started something
That you won't see through
You, oh you
You've got this thing about what should be coming true
You were a friend
Things were different then
Either way I have to lose
And now it seems
There is a distance between
What you say and what you do

He was a friend
Things were different then
Either way I have to lose
And now it seems
There is a distance between
What you say and what you do

You, oh you
You've gone and started something
That you won't see through
You, oh you
You've got this thing about what should be coming true
You, oh you...
You, oh you...
You, oh you...
You'vbe gone and started something
That you won't see through
You, oh you...

You Don't Want To Know

( Bonus Track of Beautiful Collision Limited Edition LP )

She's painting her face now
She's choosing her shoes and stockings
She's tying her lace now
But you don't want to know
You don't want to know

She's coming around now
She's catching a bus to see you
But you won't be home now
'Cause you don't want to know
You don't want to know

Don't you let her down
You know that she loves you
Don't you fool around
She thinks that she needs you

She tells all her friends now
She talks on the phone for hours
Takes very long long showers
But you don't want to know
You don't want to know

Don't you let her down
You know that she loves you
Don't you fool around
She thinks that she needs you

But she's wrong, so very wrong
So wrong, so very wrong

She talks to her mirror
She's thinking of what to say now
But you never hear her
'Cause you don't want to know
You don't want to know

Don't you let her down
You know that she loves you
Don't you fool around
She thinks that she needs you

But when she's gone, well then she's gone
She's gone, well then she's gone
Gone...
She's gone, well then she's gone

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