Emiliana Torrini is half Icelandic, half Italian. She grew up in Iceland in a town outside Reykjavik and spent her childhood summers with her grandmother in the far east of Iceland out in the wild, spacious countryside. Her teen summers were spent in Germany with her Italian uncle. She joined a choir aged seven and sang soprano till she was 15, when she went to opera school. “I got into other music rather late because we didn“t have any records, well except lots of classical, my mum“s Greatest Love Songs compilation from the TV and Leonard Cohen whom I love. Then we got MTV. We were the first people in our town to have it and I would stay up all night to record from the late night alternative shows, making tapes to take to school to brag about my musical findings.“

She recorded a few jazz and blues songs for her father“s 50th birthday which then became an album that sold 15,000 copies in Iceland and remained at number one for many months. She followed this with an equally successful album of which 50% was co-written by her and hence the beginnings of her writing career. “I spent this period singing in restaurants, bars and hotels all over Iceland,“ and that is how she was discovered by One Little Indian where their MD happened to be eating. Emiliana consequently moved to England where Roland Orzabal from Tears For Fears co-produced her worldwide debut. “ I wanted to move to India, learn the classical techniques there, then move to Bulgaria, be a gypsy, and learn the techniques, and keep moving and learning new ways of singing - but instead I came to England and made a pop record.“

So opens Emiliana Torrini’s second album, a soft-yet-searing collection of twelve intimate and atmospheric songs that will whisper their way into your bloodstream. Back in 1999, when the singer released the critically acclaimed Love In The Time Of Science, Emiliana came out with a gorgeous, electronic trippoppin’ vision of endless summer and moonlit nights out. Following her departure from One Little Indian, there’s a new introspection, closer to Nick Drake or Jolie Holland than Portishead or Goldfrapp.

The 27-year-old singer and writer has nonetheless been busy since Love In The Time Of Science. She moved to Brighton, joined the cast of Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers to perform the enchanting ‘Gollum Song’ wrote and toured with Thievery Corporation, and wrote a Number One Hit for Kylie Minogue in the shape of huge-selling pop smash “Slow“. “It was a very fun thing to do,“ she says. “It was an opportunity to dust off my dancing shoes and write music that I don“t normally write but love, and then keep the smokey-little-bar-music to my self.“ “Slow“ was written and produced with Brixton-based producer Mr Dan, midway through the sessions that became Fisherman“s Woman. After writing with a number of different artists, Emiliana was introduced to Mr Dan – and they clicked immediately. “it had been so long since the last album, and I was in two minds of doing it again,“ she says. “I was very nervous about going back, but we had so much fun doing it. It is just one of those collaborations I have been waiting for all my life.“

Emiliana decided to go back to basics and write with just a guitar and no electronics or programming. The pair jammed out the songs in Dan“s dark Brixton basement with Dan on guitar and Emiliana conjuring up the lyrics and melodies. After that they recorded the record in The Exchange in Camden, “ well one thing I knew very well is that I wanted a very intimate vocal sound,“ she says. “This album was recorded with candles, laughing fits and my duvet. We were sad leaving Brixton. I love it there,“ she says. “It can suck the life out of you and then blow you full again. Depends what mood it“s in. Brixton is like a huge “me me me show“.“

Emiliana TorriniIntimate. It sounds like it: opening gambit “Nothing Brings Me Down“ gradually builds from sparse beginnings; Dan“s acoustic guitar, light touches of piano - to a textured, gentle circle. Album highlight “Sunny Road“ sounds as if it could have leaped out of a dusty, lost Leonard Cohen session, while “Lifesaver“ floats along a mysterious, fairy-tale accordion melody, accompanied by the ambient creak of boats on water. “Thinking Out Loud“ whispers of Eastern Europe and the Appalachians before album closer, “Serenade“ multi-tracks the listener into a moonlit dream which references clouds, dark vines, temptations and new tomorrows. It“s evocative and heart-felt – a handcrafted jewel of a record. Fisherman“s Woman also includes a song, “Honeymoon Child“ written by smog“s Bill Callahan, who Emiliana spent some time writing with in America.

Fisherman“s Woman is a very different beast. It is themed around loss, and how it feels to lose people; sometimes it“s dripping with sadness but more frequently imbued with almost magical optimism. “Fisherman“s Woman is a letter I wrote to a person that I lost at that time. I coped by thinking I was with a fisherman. They can go on sea for months like my friend“s dad. Her mum saw him twice a year maybe for a fortnight at a time,“ she says. “It was a little bit like Alice in Wonderland. The falling into a hole, the madness of it all.“ Despite the sadness, Emiliana remains positive. “I could never write a wholly sad album,“ she says laughing. “There are too many moon rivers to see and life to live. Fisherman“s woman has been a way of making things whole again.“

This album is sincerely honest and as endearing as they come. And it's lovely, too.

I'm a bad luck woman

( Memphis Minnie ) 

Every man i get, he won't get sick - he will die
Doggone woman take from him he's a doggone fly

I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman i can't see the reason why

Well the next man i got, you know he worked very hard
Just as soon as i got him he lost his doggone job

I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman i can't see the reason why

Well the next man i got he was a railroad man
Just as soon as i got him everything went out his doggone hands

I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman i can't see the reason why

Well the next man i got he was long and tall
Everytime i look around he was kickin' at someone other mans jaw

I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman i can't see the reason why

Wooooooh

Well the next man i got he was short and fat
I couldn't keep him because he wasn't taught like that

I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman i can't see the reason why

Well the next man i got he was a sandhawk in the sea
I had him two days and he got drowned away from me

I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman
I'm a bad luck woman i can't see the reason why

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

Crazy love

( Van Morrison )

I can hear his heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time he smiles
And when I come to him that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to him like a river's song

He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

He's got a fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
And when I come to him when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, I go right to sleep

He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

Yeah I need him in the daytime
Yeah I need him in the night
Yeah I want to throw my arms around him
Kiss him, hug him, kiss him, hold his tight

And now I'm returning from so far away
He gives me some sweet lovin', brighten up my day
Yeah It makes me feel righteous, yes it makes me feel whole
Yes It makes me feel mellow down to my soul

He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
He give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

The Man With the Golden Gun

( Lyrics by Don Black, Music by John Barry )

He has a powerful weapon
He charges a million a shot,
An assassin that's second to none,
The man with the golden gun.

Lurking in some darkened doorway,
Or crouched on a roof top somewhere,
In the next room, or this very one
The man with the golden gun.

Love is required whenever he's hired,
It comes just before the kill.
No-one can catch him, no hit man can match him
For his million dollar skill.

One golden shot means another poor victim,
Has come to a glittering end,
For a price, he'll erase anyone
The man with the golden gun.

His eye may be on you or me.
Who will he bang?
We shall see. Oh yeah!

Love is required whenever he's hired,
It comes just before the kill.
No-one can catch him, no hit man can match him
For his million dollar skill.

One golden shot means another poor victim,
Has come to a glittering end,
If you want to get rid of someone,
The man with the golden gun
Will get it done
He'll shoot anyone
With his golden gun.

Today I sing the blues

( Aretha Franklin )

Without a word of warnin'
Blues walked in this mornin'
And circled 'round my lonely room

I didn't know why i had that sad 'n lonely feelin'
Until my baby called and said we were through, hooo
For yesterday this time i sang a lovesong
But today... i'm singing the blues

Hmmmm...

Strikes me kinda funny
How love can be this way
We were lovin' 'til last night honey, yeah
I'm alone again today

And it strikes me kinda funny
How fate can be unfair
That i come right on the losin' end
In every, every love affair!

Yes it must be, it must be meant for me
That i should be the one, be the one to always lose, hooo

For yesterday!
Yesterday this time i'd sing a love song
Whoaoohhh!
Yeah, but right now - im singin the blues!
Who-o-oh ye-he-heah!

The dirty dozen

( Speckled Red )

I want all you manfolk to fall in line
And shake yo shimmy like i'm shakin' mine
You shake yo shimmy and you shake it fast
If you can't shake the shimmy, shake it yes yes yes

And you'sa dirty mistreatin' robber and a-cheatin'
Strip you in a desert and you pop aint yo cousin
And you mama do the lordylord

You're to go with pop and runnin' round the field
Slippin' and a-slidin' like an automobile
I hollared at poppa and told him to wait
He slipped away from me just like a cadillac snake

'Cause he's a rotten mistreater, robber and a cheater
Slip you with a dozen, yo pop aint yo cousin'
And you mama do the lordylord!

Now i liked yo uncle, liked yo brother too
I did like yo papa but yo papa wouldn't do
I met yo' daddy on the carn the other day
You know about that 'cause he was funny that way 

'Cause he's a funny mistreater, robber and a cheater
Strip you in a dozen, yo pop is yo cousin
Yo mama do the lordylord!

Now God made'em an elephant, he made him stout
Wasn't satisfied until he made him a snout
Made him a snout just as long as a rail
Wasn't satisfied until he made him a tail
Made him a tail just to find the flies
Wasn't satisfied until he made him some eyes
Made him some eyes just to look on the grass
He wasn't satisfied until he made his yes-yes
Made his yes-yes-yes, did he get fixed
He wasn't satisfied until he made him sick
He made him sick, oh lord, he made him well
You know about that 'cause the elephant cried out

He's a funny mistreater, robber and a cheater
Strip you in a dozen, yo pop is yo cousin
Yo maaaaaama do the loooooordylooooord!
Wooooo!

Tomorrow

(Lyrics & Music Paul Williams)

Tomorrow
Tomorrow never comes
What kind of a fool 
Do they take me for? 

Tomorrow
A resting place for bums
A trap set in the slums
But I know the score

I won't take no for an answer
I was born to be a dancer now, Yeah! 

Tomorrow
Tomorrow, as they say
Another working day and another chore

Tomorrow
An awful price to pay
I gave up yesterday
But they still want more

They are bound to compare me
To Fred Astaire when I'm done yeah

Anyone who feels the rhythm
Movin' through em
Knows it's gonna do em good
To let the music burst out

When you feel assured
Let the people know it
Let the laughter loose
Until your scream
Becomes a love-shout, ah, yeah

Tomorrow
Tomorrow's far away
Tomorrow, as they say, 
Is reserved for dreams

Tomorrow
Tomorrow's looking grey
A playground always locked 
Trains no winning teams

Won't take no for an answer
I was born to be a dancer now, yeah

Anyone who feels the rhythm through em
Knows it's gonna do em good
To let the music burst out

When you feel assured
Let the people know it. 
Let your laughter loose
Until your scream becomes a love shout
Aaaaah

Find it

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Come rescue lunatic skies
All red destruction 
Sun rising more directly on my head

I've got to find the direction to follow
Something that's mine, not something i borrowed
Each day i wait, heaven still wait on me

Find it
I've got to find it
Get me behind it
Someplace for me, yeah!

Find it!
Find it!
Find it!
Fiiiind it in meeeee, mm-mm-mm!

I need the leatch from watching you
You dont satisfy me enough today
Time is still near when i will be gone away

Where will you follow, right by the crimson
Dressed in a long black wedding-gown
I've got to find my action by my own

Find it
I've got to find it
Get me behind it
Someplace for me, yeah

Find it!
Find it!
Find it!
Fiiiind it in me, mm-mm-mm!

Open my eyes to lunatic skies
All red destruction
Sunrising morning empty up my head

Find it
I got to find it
Get me behind it
Someplace for me, yeah

Find it!
Find it!
Find it!
Fiiiind it in me, mm-mm-mm!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhh!

Find it
I got to find it
Get me behind it
Someplace for me, yeah

Find it!
Find it!
Find it!
Fiiiind it in me, oo-oo-oooh!

Blame It On The Sun

( Stevie Wonder )

Where has my love gone?
How can I go on?
It seems dear love has gone away.
Where is my spirit?
I'm nowhere near it!
Oh yes, my love...has gone astray.

But I'll blame it on the sun,
The sun that didn't shine,
I blame it on the wind, and the trees.

I'll blame it on the time,
That never was enough,
I'll blame it on the tide, and the sea.
But my heart blames it... on me.

Who poured the love out?
What made this bitter doubt?
Is peace not here, for me to see?
Wish I could tell you, what I am feelin'.
But words won't come, for me to speak.

Wow! But I'll blame it on the sun, that didn't fill the sky.
I'll blame it on the birds, and the trees.
I'll blame it on the day, that ended once too soon.
I'll blame it on the nights, that could not be.
I'll blame it on the sun, the sun that didn't shine.
I'll blame it on the wind, and the trees.
I'll blame it on the time, that never was enough.
I'll blame it on the tide, and the sea.
But my heart blames it... on me.

The Boy Who Giggled So Sweet

He came with the breeze
She told everyone, in the cold
She would hold him and sing a song,
Sweet little Anna, singing her sad, sad song,
To her beautiful boy that giggled so sweet.

The days went by until one little night,
with this one little moon hanging in its black,
Sweet little Anna, whispered her goodnight song,
In the ear of the boy who giggled so sweet.

"My baby, my beauty, my boy, my baby,
What is your favourite song of all songs?
Sweet baby, my love, my darling, my baby,
Forever your rosie little lips won't turn blue.

I won't let nights hurt you,
I won't let them take you,
Take my hand and we'll run up that tree.

I won't let days hurt you,
I wont let them break you,
if so my little heart will die,
if so my tears will freeze and turn grey."

He just stared in her hardworking arms,
His rosie little lips had turned blue,
Sweet little Anna, chanted her goodnight song,
for her beautiful boy that giggled so sweet.

"My baby, my beauty..."

They took the boy who giggled so sweet,
Frozen grey tears glanced on her cheek,
And the goodnight song,
She never stopped singing,
Danced from her lips,
Down the dark grey street.

"My baby, my beauty..."

Stephanie Says

( Lou Reed ) 

Stephanie says,
That she wants to know,
Why she's given half her life
To people she hates now.

Stephanie says
When answering the phone
What country shall I say is calling,
From across the world?

But she's not afraid to die,
The people all call her Alaska,
Between worlds, so the people ask her,
'Cause it's all in her mind.
It's all in her mind.

Stephanie says,
That she wants to know,
Why it is though she's the door
She can't be the room.

Stephanie says,
But doesn't hang up the phone,
What seashell-sea is callin',
From across the world?

But she's not afraid to die,
The people all call her Alaska,
between worlds, so people ask her,
'Cause it's all in her mind.
It's all in her mind.

They're asking "Is it good or bad?".
It's such an icy feeling.
It's so cold in Alaska! X4

Red Woman Red

Hi! I'm the red woman red,
With the broken wooden leg,
There are many red dresses
Lying on my red, 
Old bed,
And the oven is hot,
So come and warm yourself up,
By the red fire red,
By the red woman red.

Hello, red woman red,
With the broken wooden leg,
Guess I'll take your offer,
And have a little rest,
And my naked staring breasts,
In a red cherry dress,
By the red fire red,
With you red woman red.

I'm the red woman red,
With the broken wooden leg,
Red curly girl how do you dare?
You're sitting on my man's chair,
And the oven is hot,
So come here 
And I'll burn you up,
In the red fire red,
You're a dead woman dead.

Old Man And Miss Beautiful

Old man, old man,
Staring at young
Miss Beautiful,
Taking her home
Every night,
Loving her, holding her.

Old man, old man,
Everyday watching
Miss Beautiful,
Smelling her,
Tasting her,
Loving her, feeling her.

Old man, old man,
Wanting to keep
Miss Beautiful,
Hangs her on the
Bedroom wall,
Loving her, owning her.

 Chelsea Morning

( Joni Mitchell )

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning,
And the first thing that I heard,
Was a song outside my window,
And the traffic wrote the words,
It came ringing up like christmas bells,
And rapping up like pipes and drums.

Oh, won't you stay we'll put on the day,
And we'll wear it 'till the night comes.

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning,
And the first thing that I saw,
Was the sun through yellow curtains,
And a rainbow on the wall,
Blue, red, green and gold to welcome you,
Crimson crystal beads to beckon

Oh, won't you stay we'll put on the day,
There's a sun show every second.

Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today.
And the streets are paved with passersby,
And pigeons fly, and papers lie,
Waiting to blow away.

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning,
And the first thing that I knew,
There was milk and toast and honey,
And a bowl of orangejuice too,
And the sun poured in like butterscotch,
And stuck to all my senses.
Oh, wont you stay we'll put on the day,
And we'll talk in present tenses.

When the cuntain closes,
And the rainbow runs away,
I will bring you incense owls by night,
By candlelight, by two jewellight
If only you will stay.
Pretty baby won't you.
Wake up, it is a Chelsea morning. 

I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You

( Tom Waits )

Well, I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
'Cause falling in love just makes me blue.
When the music plays and you display your heart for me to see.
I had a beer and now I hear you calling out for me.
And, I hope that I don't fall in love with you.

Well, the room is crowded, people everywhere.
And I wonder should I offer you a chair.
Well, if you sit down with this old clown, take that frown and break it.
Before the evening's gone away, I think that we could make it.
And, I hope that I don't fall in love with you.

Well, the night does funny things inside a man.
This old tom-cat feelings you don't understand.
Well, I turn around to look at you, you light a cigarette.
I wish I had the guts to bum one, but we've never met.
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.

I can see that you are lonesome, just like me.
And it being late, you'd like some company.
Well, I turn around to look at you, and you look back at me.
The guy you're with has up and split, the chair next to you is free.
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me.

It's closing time, the music's fading out.
Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout.
Well, I turn around to look at you, you're nowwhere to be found.
I search the place for your lost face, guess I'll have another round.

And I think that I just fell in love with you.

Premiere Lovin'

You wore a dark, purple suit, with a tissue 'round your neck.
Lonely, eating tomato soup, I knew I had to check.

A broken ball of fruits, was lying by your side,
You offered me a chair, I guess just to be polite.

I guess this is my premiere lovin'.

You asked me with a voice of torn old silk.
"Do you want some berries with sugar, chocolate and milk?"

I'm here, look at me, but you just lit a cigarette;
"You're not quite what I'm looking for my little marionette"

I guess this is my premiere lovin'.
I guess this is my premiere lovin'.

Well, that's sweet, how nice.
Now what will I do?
Stand up and leave or just sit still and look at you?

Well, that's sweet, how nice.
Now what will I do?
Stand up and leave or just sit still and look at you?

Gleaming, you stood up obviously had a thrill.
I sat there alone of course I had to pay the bill.

That's just great, how nice, what a surprise!
My luck had run out, on to the beach, to the sun, resting, having fun.

I guess this is my premiere lovin'.
I guess this is my premiere lovin'.
I guess this is my premiere lovin'.

Merman

When you look into his eyes,
You wish that no one could see him,
Only you could be touched by him,
And you could walk alone by his side,
And if you want to dream with him,
Just close your eyes, and hold your breath,
And you'll find that you can breathe in water.

When you look into his eyes,
you wish that no one could see him,
No one else could see him,
No one else could feel him.

When you look into his eyes,
you wish that no one could see him,
No one else could see him,
No one else could feel him.

When you look into his eyes,
You feel he's telling you goodbye,
He says "I'm off into the living".
And your lungs ache filled with water.
You watch how he walks you by.
And all the fish follow him.
You smile 'cause you'll always be his lover.

When you look into his eyes,
you wish that no one could see him,
No one else could see him,
No one else could feel him.

When you look into his eyes,
you wish that no one could see him,
No one else could see him,
No one else could feel him.

I Really Loved Harold

( Melanie Safka )

They told me when I was little,
I'd go to heaven if I was good.
Now I'm a long way from little,
'Cause I tried to find heaven,
'Cause I thought that I could.
I thought that I could.

And I thought I loved Harold,
And I really loved John,
I really loved Alphy
I almost loved Tom.
I loved them so easy,
And I loved them so free.
Now I don't think that heaven
Will wanna love me.

Hallo, song of the willow,
The dreams under my pillow,
Turned to tears that I cried.
Beauty and love are our riddle,
Never to answer, but always to try.
And, boy, did I try.

And I tried with Harold,
And I tried with John.
I tried with Alphy,
And almost with Tom.
I left myself open,
For the whole world to see.
Now I don't think that heaven
Will wanna love me.

So I said goodbye to Harold,
And goodbye to John.
Goodbye to Alphy,
And goodbye to Tom.
I loved them so easy,
And I loved them so free.
Now I don't think that heaven
Will wanna love me.

Oh say, can you see?
By the dawn's early light
No light will shine me

Love in the time of scince

 To be free

Once in a house on a hill
A boy got angry
He broke into my heart

For a day and a night
I stayed beside him
Until I had no hope

So I came down the hill
Of course I was hurt
But then I started to think

It shouldn't hurt me to be free
It's what I really need
To pull myself together
But if it's so good being free
Would you mind telling me
Why I don't know what to do with myself

There's a bar by the dock
Where I found myself
Drinking with this man
He offered me a cigarette
And I accepted
'Cause it's been a very long time
As it burned 'till the end
I thought of the boy
No one could ever forget

It shouldn't hurt me to be free
It's what I really need
To pull myself together
But if it's so good being free
Would you mind telling me
Why I don't know what to do with myself

To pull myself together
But if it's so good being free
Would you mind telling me
Why I don't know what to do with myself

To pull myself together
But if it's so good being free
Would you mind telling me
Why I don't know what to do with myself

Baby blue

Boxing shadows in my sleep
It's the company I keep
The perfect exercise
As I grow older

I can't believe what God has done
He took the heat out of the sun
And now it seems the world
Is growing colder

Between the pleasure and the pain
Wishing your life away
No more sinister than sane
Briefing your life away
Between the flicker and the flame
No one can explain
Baby blue is born again

I'm looking for some place to go
 Sucking out screams in stereo
Before my very eyes
I saw her drowning


Keep my daughter in a jar
She can't get out she won't go far
Her heart is in my mouth
But still keep pounding

Between the pleasure and the pain
Wishing your life away
No more sinister than sane
Briefing your life away
Between the flicker and the flame
No one can explain
Baby blue is born again

Between the pleasure and the pain
Wishing your life away
No more sinister than sane
Briefing your life away
Between the flicker and the flame
No one can explain
Baby blue is born again

Dead things

You're like me
We're both alone
What's the problem
I don't know
With the same high
The same eyes
But you can't borrow my clothes all the time

Bad things
Dead things
Sad things have to happen
Sometimes

I let the snow
Melt in my mouth
Until my head hurts
Until I'm out
Makes me laugh a bit
Makes me cry
Same way you confuse me all the time

Bad things
Dead things
Sad things have to happen

Bad things
Dead things
Sad things have to happen

Bad things
Dead things
Sad things have to happen

Sometimes
Sometimes
Sometimes
Sometimes

Unemployed in summertime

Let's get drunk on saturday
Walk on Primrose Hill
Until we lose our way
We''ll get sunburned on the grass
Playing silly buggers 'till I make a pass
And you laugh at my face

Unemployed in summertime
I've only just turned 21, I'll be ok
Unemployed in summertime
Don't need money 'cause we're young
I'll just stay awake till the morning
With make up all over my face

Sorry don't get mad at me
I just did the sex quizz
From your magazine
You're my best friend in the world
Just like me you don't do
Anything you're told

Unemployed in summertime
I've only just turned 21, I'll be ok
Unemployed in summertime
Don't need money 'cause we're young
I'll just stay awake till the morning
With make up all over my face

On a mission for my summer kiss
I close my eyes and wet my lips
But then I miss, and you laugh at my face

Unemployed in summertime
I've only just turned 21, I'll be ok
Unemployed in summertime
Don't need money 'cause we're young
I'll just stay awake till the morning
With make up all over my face

Unemployed in summertime
I'v only just turned 21, I'll be ok

Easy

It's not an accident
You mean to touch me
And that's exactly why I'm here
A trick of confidence
Twenty years inside
You're exactly what I need

But I bide
Don't have time to play
So put your toys away

Don't take it easy
Why should we take easy yeah
Should we take it easy

I break into the park
With the insects
Stricking up the costume ball
The light is lovely here
In the neon glow
I could never want for more

But I bide
Don't have time to play
So put your toys away

Don't take it easy
Why should we take easy yeah
Should we take it easy
Why should we take easy yeah
Should we take it easy
Why should we take easy yeah
Easy yeah

Fingertips

Before I can open my all to eager eyes
Everything changes from the oceans to the skies
Perpetual emotion sadder place by me
Everything's breathing my air in all of tree

Yet my fingertips
Have a special sound
Yet my fingertips
They go around and round

This comical wisdom
Creeps into my brain
Away of my nerve
And also free of pain

Yet my fingertips
Have a special sound
Yet my fingertips
They go around and round

Pa-pa-pa-ra-raaa-a
Pa-pa-pa-ra-raaa-a

Electrical current
Hallowed be the name 
Live my emotions
And vanish all my shame

Yet my fingertips
Have a special sound
Yet my fingertips
Smell of sodden ground

Before I can open my all to eager eyes (all to eager eyes)
Everything changes from the oceans to the skies

Yet my fingertips
Have a special sound
Yet my fingertips
They go round and round

Pa-pa-pa-ra-raaa-a
Pa-pa-pa-ra-raaa-a

Telepathy

Think of me very scientifically
Share your thoughts with me
Send them over land and see

They seep through walls
Echo down abandoned halls
Let me see your joy and fear

How can it be we never see
What we have until it's gone
Why is it so we never know
What we have until it's gone

The more I try, all the faster you'll slip by
So vaporize
Slide to me like liquid ice
I can see into your eyes

Why is it so we never know
What we have until it's gone
Until we burn we never learn
What we have until it's gone

Scientifically
Scientifically

I can see into your eyes
The deepest blue of winter skies

Why is it so we never know
What we have until it's gone
Until we burn we never learn
What we have until it's gone

*** Thanx a lot to Kimsy & Gman for this one ***

Tuna fish

I am lying in my bed
Watching spider eat the fly
I say :"How is that is breakfast TV for you"
A little later I'm sitting by the window looking out
The red army is really blowing up the street

I'm too stale to eat breakfast
So I smell my fingertips
A cup of coffee won't do for me

How days creep by in the greying sky
How days creep by and they never even try
How days creep by in the greying sky
How days creep by

Guess it's time for a walk
Just to read some license plates
What is autumn doing creeping up to me
Going on the tube to scream when the train arrives
Rubbing cress on my skin, God it smells so nice
All the same I'd think I'll go on rolling up the hill
If I'm lucky you won't see me

How days creep by in the greying sky
How days creep by come and ask me why
How days creep by in the greying sky
How days creep by

Did you know that tuna fish
Float up to the surface
Belly to the moonlight just to cool down their heart down
'Cause it helps them just to think about the hurtful things
I guess it's just one wait to get them some sedation

How days creep by - In the greying sky 
How days creep by - And they definitely die 
How days creep by - In the greying sky 
How days creep by 

How days creep by - And they definitely die 
How days creep by come and ask me why
How days creep by
How days creep by
How days creep by

Summerbreeze

It might have been a while
Since you've been loved
Like you should be loved

It might have been a while
Since you've been kissed
Like you should be kissed

In tender loving arms
Might be something you miss

Well summerbreeze is blowing through your window
And summerbreeze is blowing through your hair
And something in your eyes that you cannot disguise
Don't tell me it ain't there

It might have been a while
Since you've been loved
By one who really loves you

It might have been a while
Since you could trust
That someone really cares

When people like us
Meant to go 'round in pairs

Summerbreeze is blowing through your window
And summerbreeze is blowing through your hair
Something in your eyes that took me by surprise
Don't tell me that it ain't there

*** Thanx a lot to Kimsy and ME ! for this one ***

Sea people

Can you ever see me as you did before
Can you ever see me like you did once more
When I look into your eyes
I can breathe in water
Like you

When you say goodbye
My lungs ache filled with water
'Cause I will always love you

*** Thanx a lot to Kimsy and ME ! for this one ***

Fisherman's Woman

Nothing brings me down

Home alone and happy
Nothing brings me down
Full of wine, unsteady
Nothing brings me down
What's left of the rain runs down my roof
Nothing brings me down
The night is lush the air is still
Nothing brings me down

Dum dum dum dum dum dum

The windows are open, the flies are in
Nothing brings me down
The phones are off the music's on
Nothing brings me down

Dum dum dum dum dum dum

Home alone and happy
Nothing brings me down
My love for you is ready
Nothing brings me down
My love for you is ready

*** Thanx a lot to Kirkis & Ibo & Tera who corrected a mistake ***

Sunny road

Wrote you this
I hope you got it safe
It's been so long
I don't know what to say
I've travelled 'round
Through deserts on my horse
But jokes aside
I want to come back home

You know that night
I said I had to go
You said you'd meet me
On the sunny road

It's time, meet me on the sunny road
it's time, meet me on the sunny road

I never married
Never had those kids
I loved too many
Now heaven's closed its gates

I know I'm bad
To jump on you like this
Some things don't change
My middle name's still 'Risk'

I know that night
So long, long time ago
Will you still meet me
On the sunny road

It's time, meet me on the sunny road
It's time, meet me on the sunny road

Well, this is it
I'm running out of space
And here's my address
And number just in case

This time as one
We'll find which way to go
Now come and meet me
On the sunny road

*** Thanx a lot to Meir & Lee & Ibo & Tera & Kirkis for this one ***

Snow

You won't believe what I just found out
She's getting married on the fifth time 'round
Leaning on my favourite side
And I wondered where you werere and realized
Something's painted in the snow that you'd like

Finally I'm going all sane
Wanna tell you something
We'll last for long
Well we've sometimes gone astray
But I can't care for nothing, no way

And I hope again to live this life
Just to see you again before I died

Yes I hope again to live this life
To see you once more before I died

And see you before I died

*** Thanx a lot to Meir & Tera for this one ***

LifeSaver

Lifesaver
Your timing's really strange
Catch me later
But can you please be late

And it's funny how your thoughts
Think they're right at all
And it's funny how your cause
Makes no sense at all

Lifesaver
Let's play a little game
Catch me later
But make sure you'll be there late

And it's funny how it seems
You're doing things
And its funny how you find
Your peace of mind

Lifesaver
I'm cancelling our date
Lifesaver
It's time you had a break

Lifesaver
I'm cancelling our date

Honeymoon Child

You are true honeymoon child
Conceived on an island in the sun
Heals dug in the white sand
Loved and adored from day one

Raised in a wild space
Between two hearts
Where the vines climb trees toward the light
Running naked, dragging a kite
Or your dress on a string

You bring up the soft side in everyone
We gather like ravens
On a rusty sythe
Just to watch
Such a little dove
Just to watch
Such a little dove
Fly away

Mister Bones from town said he saw you the other day
He said you changed but he wouldn’t say how

Well it can always turn
Yeh, it can always turn
A wing can always turn

*** Thanx a lot to Megdy & Ibo & Tera & Kirkis for this one ***

Today has been OK

Friends tell me it's spring
My window show the same
Without you here the seasons pass me by

I know you were not new
That loved like me and you
All the same I miss you

Today has been ok
Today has been ok

Preacher lost his son
It's known by all in town
He found him with another son of God

Feeding on that prayer
Never mind what God said
But love had lost its cause
And I thought today had been ok
Today has been ok
Today has been ok

Wind has burned your skin
The lovely air's so thin
The salty water’s underneath your feet

No one’s gone in vain
Here is where you'll stay
This life has been insane but
Today has been ok
Today has been ok

Today has been ok
Today has been ok

*** Thanx a lot to Megdy & Ibo & Kirkis for this one ***

Next time around

( Sandy Denny Cover )

Then came question and it was about time
The answer came back and it was long
The house it was built by some man in a rhyme
But whatever came of his talented son

Who wrote me a dialogue set to a tune
Always you told me of being alone
Except for the stories about God and you
And do you still live there, in Bufallo

They put up the walls, no more to say
And nobody stopped to ask why it was done
The stream was too far and the rains too high
So into the city the river did run
 
Because of the architect the buildings fell down
Smothered and drowned all the seeds that you sow
I wish I was somewhere but not in this town
Maybe the ocean next time around

I seem to remember the face and the name
But if it’s not you I don’t care
I know of changes, but nothing would change you
To Theo the sailor who sings in his lair

And then I’ll turn and he won't be there
Dusky black windows to light the dark stair
Candles all gnarled in the musty air
All without flames for many's the year

*** Thanx a lot to Megdy & Tera & Kirkis for this one ***

Heartstopper

You said I began
This messy state of love affairs
That I drink too much and smoke too fast
And this city's cleared my innocence

Coffee's pouring out my ears
It’s the only thing they have in here
And my heart stops beating

And when it stops it stops
My heart stopped beating
And when it stops it stops
My heart stopped beating

Number tree still on my plate
I heard the trains are running late
And I laughed out loud
My life is a mess
I have gone too far
In my lifelessness

Another coffee it’s on the house
The poor girl look is on the owners spouse
And my heart stopped beating

And when it stops it stops
My heart stopped beating
And when it stops it stops
My heart stopped beating

Outside your house
To make a scene
In my head you grab me passionately
But the lights are out
And in an hour I walked on home
In the pouring shower
Lost my keys in front of me
My neighbour smiles he’s handing me
The blackest coffee you will ever see
And my hearts stops beating

And when it stops it stops
My heart stopped beating
And when it stops it stops
My heart stopped beating

*** Thanx a lot to Megdy & Kirkis for this one ***

At least it was

I thought I saw you on the train
I hid behind some men
I'd never seen you look so good
I’m glad you're doing well

I went out for a walk today
To think of things unsaid
Of course I found I'd said too much
So I laid all that to rest

And when the day falls
I guess it was love
And when the day falls
At least it was

You thought of the name to call me
I guess that’s how it goes
I know a few with the same name
Yes, I’m sad I’m one of those

Ungraceful as I am in loving
In leaving I'm the same
It’s way too late to say I’m sorry
But I’ll say it anyway

And when the day falls
I guess it was love
And when the day falls
At least it was

Dum dum dum dum

Fisherman’s woman

I’m pretending to be a good fisherman’s woman
Just like Anna Ingunn's mom
The gladiator of all fisherman’s wives
It makes it a lot easier thinking of you
On the sea where you have to be a month at a time
Working hard in the day
Your hands cracking from the cold and the salt
In the night when you go to bed
You try to sleep by listening to the boat breathing
The boat breathing
And the only thing
The only thing you can think of is me
Waiting for you by the window
With the brightest red lipstick on my lips
Just like Anna waits for her man
How will I learn
I'll wait

*** Thanx a lot to Megdy & Anna & Hanz & Kirkis for this one ***

Thinking Out Loud

Like the leaves at my feet
He is a victim of gravity
The unbearable colour of things
Gets him down

And as his raincoat covers me
We know it was never raining

Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud

Like strings in a fan
The shoelaces are undone
The solitude reflection of his fate
Gets him down

And as the shadow covers me
I thought he was only sleeping

Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
Sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud

His clothes on the floor
Underwear silverlined
The smell of lavender and tar
Brings me down

And if the telephone should ring
God knows it could never be him

I'm sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
I'm sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
I'm sorry it was me
Was I thinking out loud
I'm sorry it was me
Thinking out loud

Serenade

New world forming
Picturesque in its stance
Midnight calling
Moonlight shadows start to dance

For the dark finds ways of being
Engraved in the light
And the heart bears indentations
Of yesterdays hurting child
The now we will run with smiles
The morrow will heal the night so

Morning comes
Midnight make fast with the sun
I can hear my name be reborn
On the cloud within the sky beneath the dawn

Oh I
Serenade the dawn
Serenade the dawn
Serenade the dawn

For the dark finds ways of being
Engraved in the light
And the heart bears indentations
Of yesterdays hurting child
The now we will run with smiles
The morrow will heal the night so

Morning comes
Midnight make fast with the sun
I can hear my name be reborn
On the cloud within the sky beneath the dawn

Oh I
Serenade the dawn
Serenade the dawn

Me and Armini

Fireheads

Somebody’s got a long way to go
You're not sitting by the phone no more
You're gonna throw it away
Crush it on a rock, yeah
So you can live your life

Hmm, are we going crazy

It's not fair to say we've wasted time
In my view, we just used it all up
It's not fair to say we've wasted time
In my view, we just used it all up

Hmm, what hurts you, hurts me too
I find it hard to make right
I know I’ve been a pain lately
That I failed in every test, oh I did wrong

Oh man, what are we seeing here
Life's changed all
We share a similar firehead
So there's nowhere to go

Lost change and things I braved
Somewhere we got lost and can't be seen
There's a hard wind blowing down our house
Once that's gone it can't be found

I thought you'd keep me warm
But I was shown
I was wrong

Oh man, what are we seeing here
Things' changed all
We share a similar firehead
Oh there's nowhere to go

No man, what are we seeing here
Life's changed all
We share the same firehead
Oh there's nowhere to go

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

Me and armini

I had my life
I know my place
I belong in your arms again
And I’ve been waiting for you
To belong to me

Some might say
I'm a silly woman to wait
But I know
You still hold my love

Some people think that I'm
Heading for a meltdown that I’m
Sitting by the phone that I’m
Worried but no

When I need your body close
I burn up in smoke
And I swore
I keep waiting

Now I see this city
Won't hold my love
For Armini
I know he's close
But I dream
I just keep waiting
I keep waiting

Some people think that I'm
Heading for a meltdown that I’m
Just sitting by the phone that I’m
Worried but no

This I know
She doesn't love you like I do
Yes it's clear
She'll never love you like me

You people say that I’m
Heading for a meltdown that I'm
Just hanging by the phone that I’m
Worried but no

I don't worry ‘cause I know
You people say
I don't worry ‘cause I know
You people say

Me and Armini
You people say
Me and Armini
Me and my Armini
You people say
Me and Armini
You people say
Me and my Armini
You people say
Me and Armini
Me and Armini

Birds

Let's stay awake and listen to the dark
Before the birds, before they all wake up
It's the ending of a play
And soon begins another
Hear, the leaves applaud the wind

See the sun come rising
And white-wings start to fly
Like strings of pearls in the firey sky
I don't wanna close my eyes
Don't wanna leave the stage now
The leaves applaud our stay

Lend me your wings and teach me how to fly
Show me, when it rains
The place you go to hide
And the curtains draw again
And bow another day ends
The leaves applaud the wind

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

Heard it all before

Night time no one hits the shore
It's me and you time
All those times we had affairs
The waves they never tell

Maybe you have found me out
Where I’ve been lately
Now your heart is broken with the one you trust
There's nothing I can say

You've heard it all before
My keys won't fit that door
You've never heard it all before
You want me here no more

And you can run away
Oh no I can't, oh no I can't
'Cause the faith that he has given is unturned

And you can run away
Oh no I can't, oh no I can't
'Cause the darkness hits the railway on that bridge

You've heard it all before
My keys won't fit that door
You've heard it all before
You want me here no more

Heard it all before
I'm losing you once more
You've heard it, yes you've heard it

Oh maybe you can let me know
Where this will take me
All the nights I longed to be like this
Where all is lost in bliss

Somewhere parked along the streets
I had my run yeah
All the money never had me bought
He had me, had me then once more

And you can run away
Oh no I can't, oh no I can't
'Cause the darkness hits the railway on that bridge

Hmm and sunshine hits the shore
And cools her rays once more
You've heard it all before
You want me here no more

A momentary lapse
A passion that would pass
You’ve heard it all before
Be it you outside my door

Ha ha

Anger steaming up your glasses
You've been holding parties all your life
'Cause it's long gone down
You're still hanging around
It's not over till it starts again

Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago

Did you hear me laughing in your head
When I saw you stuck in a rut again
Oh that drink went down smoothly
Just like the one before the last you had

Questions I have answered
You are still asking yourself again
Passed out in the gutter worn out
In your head your voices aren't clearer now after all

Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago

Anger steaming up your glasses
You've been holding parties all your life
'Cause it's long gone down
You're still hanging around
It's not over till you start again

Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
You died out long ago

Big jumps

I walked all morning to lift my heart
'Cause the world keeps dancing with the paper man
I love you never talk in dreams
The now is here your happiness is real

Oh make some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break somes bones
Come on do some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do

Sometimes I feel so confused
I'm under the illusion that I have to choose
I love you always know the way
The way back home always is the same

Oh make some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break some bones
Come on make some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do

Tick tock this clockwork will stop
You're the key for winding up my heart
Brick brock if you don't wide me up
The sky will lie upon me like a passed out drunk
Without you I would never rise again
Without you I would never rise

Hey there sunshine lift my heart
I know life is long but it goes so fast
I love you never feeling old
You never bought the rubbish that they sold

Oh make some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break some bones
Come on make some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do

Oh I do some big jumps, big jumps
You afraid to break some bones
Come on do some big jumps, big jumps
Life is yours alone
You hold your head up, your head up high
Like you think I do
Do do do do do do do do…

Jungle drum

Hey I’m in love
My fingers keep on clicking
To the beating of my heart

Hey I can't stop my feet
Ebony and ivory
And dancing in the street

Hey it's cause of you
The world is in a crazy hazy hue

My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum

Man you got me burnin'
I'm the moment between the striking and the fire

Hey read my lips
'Cause all they say is kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss

No it won't ever stop
My hands are in the chair
Yes I'm in love

My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum
My heart is beating like a jungle drum…

Hold heart

Hold heart
Don't beat so loud
For me keep your calm
As he walks out on you

No tears
Don't you come out
If you blind me now
I am defeated

No lips
Don't make a sound
Don't let him hear
The break in your voice

Hand let go of this
With ease n' grace
Don't let him bleed under your nails

Oh Lord
Take off thy crown
You're my king no more
With start merciless heart

Hold heart
Don't beat so loud
For me keep your calm
As he walks out on you

No tears
Don't you come out
If you blind me now
I am defeated

Gun

Every day I see you looking in
I'll be the smoothest thing to touch your skin
You're longing to be loved but you're alone
And your longing makes you shiver to the bone

I know your mama told you nothing of importance
No your daddy taught you nothing you could learn
You've had your sisters weighing on your pockets
And your priest he tries so hard to get you turned

Maybe you've been living lonely
While your woman has a fellow on the side
Your kids keep telling jokes that ain't that funny
And you failed in everything that comes to mind

You see I’m only here to let you know
That I love you and I’ll never let you go
So take me in the hand don't walk on by
For the life this has to offer twists inside

Now your woman has her fellow in your bed
You have to go you have to move right in
N' the ring on your finger would leave another scar
But the joke's on her she hasn't seen it all

So you shot him up close and you shot him in the face
And your woman looked on and your children they embraced
And the candle's still burning and the fire's roaring fire
You moved right in, yeah you moved right in

Stop your shaking, sweating, whining and regretting
You're making a scene that is gonna get you caught
Hey look me in the barrel and tell me that you love me
Yes this is a kiss that I swear will blow your mind

Beggar's prayer

Mama said lift your head from the sieve of your hands
Mama say eventually this hurting will end
But the shockwaves on my bones will linger
Like the ghost of you here in my bed

When I was lost you thought me a beautiful find
Sometimes I think of you sleeping, so sleep for a while
I find myself asking who'd do this to love
And the white shouldered mountains they pointed above

Lord you just dropped me here by the side of this road
Out here's too cold and I don't want to walk it alone
I've got a bottle of your blood inside me
And an old beggar's prayer on the tip of my tongue

Mama said lift your head from the sieve of your hands
Mama say eventually this hurting will end

Dead Duck

Brick brock
Tick tock
Stone the dead duck
Dead

Bleeder

Lay thee down
Park your head upon my pillow
Naked trees they dress in crows
Greet the horses coming nearer
Through the rains that bring you down

You're a man humble as a hope
Lay with me
Closer to my body

When things go wrong
You find you're a bleeder

You're a man humble as a hope
Oh lay with me
Oh closer to my body

Hmm when things go wrong
You find you're a bleeder

Hmm when things go wrong
You find you're a believer

Tookah

Tookah

Take me down
To the corner of a million miles
Where time is a waste of time

Find me a pleasant tune
And a wishing bone to be left alone with
I'll be waiting by the phone line

Tookah, you're mine
Said the girl, you left her so divine

Come down to the corner of my pain
It's been rigged yeah anyway
I've been a lonesome babe more then I ever told
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And breathe
Oh your mind is a pleasure tomb
Drifting a long the gold gold road
And let your senses override

Tookah, you're mine
Said the girl, you left her so divine
Tookah, mine

And breathe
Oh your mind is a pleasure tomb
Drifting along the gold gold road and

Caterpillar

The hem of her dress spills over
What covers the seat
And flutters in the breeze like
Caterpillars on a leaf

Hair the hue of lions
Beaches dried by morning suns
Promise me you will write me a poem
Of who I am 'for sadness comes

Oh, it comes in slow slow whispers
When it comes feels like long long winters

She placed her hand in the sun and
With her shadow smoothed me down
Turn your mind down low now
Hold me close 'for madness comes
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh, it comes in slow slow whispers
When it comes feels like long long winters

Let it come in slow slow whispers
Let it come with its long long winters

Autumn Sun

My youth stood by the harbour
Her hand set in a wave
The light now more evening then day

Now I see the beauty
I failed to see when she was me
Life undressed me off her
Strap by strap like a silk dress she fell
To my feet

She brought me flowers
Said she liked my work
I thought she couldn't do us any harm
He never liked that kind of charm
But how could he resist when her dress
Let in the autumn sun
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I used to watch the sparrows
Perched on eclectic wires
Like notes of a song waiting to be sung
For you I wrote them down

He laughed that laugh that kept me sane
In a world of dark, dark games

She brought me flowers
Said she liked my work
I thought she couldn't do us any harm
He never liked that kind of charm
But how could he resist when her dress
Let in the autumn sun

She watered the garden
And played with the kids
For her birthday he let her try on
His wedding ring

She brought me flowers
Said she liked my work
I thought she couldn't do us any harm
He never liked that kind of charm
But how could he resist when her dress
Let in the autumn sun

Home

Peering into a fire
In the forest someone's burning tyres
My breath shows the cold
I watch it rise try to ignore their calls

Home

You're a roar in my heart
A song that won't leave my mind
Creaking of the snow
Now I'll never walk the ice alone
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Home
Home
Home

Roar in my heart
Roar in my heart

Roar in my heart
Creaking ot the snow
Roar in my heart
A song that won't leave my mind
Roar in my heart
Now I'll never walk the ice alone
Roar in my heart

Home

Elísabet

Oh beneath the waves, songs surround me
Heaven binds me to a place we lost
Inside a plane thoughts deceive me
Your truth's with me
Time and time and time and time and
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Elísabet
We're calling out to another
When all is said
Oh world give silence, silence, silence

Come out from the dark
Nights a whisper
Faces flicker
And anchored by your fire
Sleeping on the sand
Night surrenders
Shadows cower
In wait, in wait, in wait, in wait and

Elísabet
the distance sounds of bells surround you
When all is said
Oh mind give silence, silence, silence

Animal Games

Your heart is like a dough
You shape it how you want
I can't stop thinking of
How that makes me want you at all
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Now you're playing all these games
That I don't know how to play
Now you say you love me
The next you're going away

So I find new love
'Cause that is what I do

Now you're scaring off the doe
Killing off the sparrow
Howling lke a wolf
Poisoning the arrow

You shake the rope I'm walking
Just to catch me when I fall
Turn while I'm still talking
Next time I'll be gone

A red kiss in a letter
That is all you'll find

Now you're scaring off the doe
Killing off the sparrow
Howling lke a wolf
Poisoning the arrow

Now you're creeping in the reeds
Spying like an eagle
Fighting like a rooster
Blood is in the water

Now I'm playing all these games
I'm getting better and better
I'm getting better and better
Yeah, I'm getting better and better

So I find new love
'Cause that is what I do

Speed Of Dark

Somebody let me get that far
I don't even know right now who we are
I see you standing on the stairwell, stairwell
You know that I am leaving
Oh we used to live fast doing it, doing it
Every night the last touch no edit, no edit
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
How did we let it get that far
I don't even know right now who we are
We threw our hearts in a wishing well
Promised we'd never brake the spell
I confess, I confess I have been tempted
I want it, I want it dangerous

Somebody tell me how we got that far
I don't even know right now who we are
And if you know that you're not breathing, get out
We can always just leave here, drive off
Life is just a flicker in the universe
Oh, under the stars we're indestructible

Somebody let me drive that car
We'll be riding down that freeway towards it all
We'll be making love under thunderstorms
Together living in a free fall
Come on won't you came with me
We'll go far

Blood Red

I want a car
In red
Without a roof
Blood red
Goes so fast
My lipstick runs
Down river

Instead
I stay a while longer

So restricted
I know too much
Am so affected
The winding hour
Belongs to strangers
This lo
This lo

Oh come the days and mountains
That you're wasting lazily around the bend and
Mind your head you're so cut up
I see the scene is running free
You don't know that
Yyou sang this whole evening
I believed in this song
Oh this song is like a breeze is coming
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I want to be in your bed
Against your skin
Where sun spills
And move like currents
In wild storms
Down river

Oh, come the days and mountains
That you're wasting lazily around the bend and

Mind your head you're so cut up
I see the scene is running free
You don't know that
You sang this whole evening
I believed in this song
Oh this song is like a breeze is coming

Fires burn in golden plates
Your the oil, I'm the flame
I'm alive the night calls
Stars align my mind roars

When Fever Breaks

When fever breaks
What happened to my mind
When fever breaks
The heart sinks in the mire
When fever breaks
The soul throws itself under

'Cause desire is rage
And rage is desire
Desire is rage
Oh rage is desire

When desire breaks
My body will unwrap you
When in rage it rages
I want to kill you with my fire
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Don't you dare
No don't you dare
Put love inside this frame
'Cause it's hurt, it is hurt
That makes you want this fate

When fever breaks
Do you hold it safe around you
Do you love when it aches
'Cause this rage will catch on fire

When desire aches
My body will unwrap you
When rages rain
I will drown you with desire

'Cause desire is rage
And rage is desire
Desire is rage
Oh rage is desire

When desire breaks
Body will unwrap you
It's an angry fate
It will kill you, it will kill you
I will kill you

Echo Horse (History Of Horses)

I head the arrows singing
I felt the whips lash
I bowed too low to a circus clown
Worked you land, sown your seeds
And gone hungry

I've taken bullets
I've taken swords
I had a great tumble
And a greater fall
Through your wars

Time it flickers in a flame
The sound of me echoes in the mountain
Heaven and earth still bowed to the sun
That is when I still ruled the plain
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Now I'm tamed and humbled
Nature abandoned me
You humiliated my ancestry
I've eaten blood, covered grass
Next to my dying owner

Time it flickers in a flame
The sound of me echoes in the mountain
Heaven and earth still bowed to the sun
That is when I still ruled the plain

Asking for love

( Asking for love LP / Megad =>  Megasarlog LP  )

Give your heart a kind of wing
Let it fly
For my love is entering
Give it a try

With your arms around my neck
Hold me to
Let this night surround our love
Me and you

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
That's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

Love is like a growing grass
Loves the rain
When it's real don't let it pass
Has all to gain

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
Yeah, that's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
That's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

That's what I'm asking for
No-one could ask for more
That's what I want you to
You've got to give me your love

Candyman

( Sprell lifandi LP)

I left home when i was only seventeen
Met a guy, he and i
Drove down to new orleans
He seemed to know his way around
And i thought i could last
The sweet-talkin', oh,
C-c-c-candyman

Warmed his bed
Kept him fed
And oh i loved him so
Thought i had to cry alot
Whenever he would go
I guess i was just too young
To really understand
A sweet-talkin' ooooooh,
C-c-c-candyman!!!

Sweet talking candyman
My sweet talking
Sweet talking candyman
I hear you talking!

He played around
And brought me down
And finally threw me out
I got burned
But I learned
What life was all about
And i often think of him
Every now and then
A sweet-talkin', ooooooh,
C-c-c-candyman

Sweet talking candyman
My sweet talking
Sweet talking candyman
I hear you talking ...

Come out

( DIP - Lo-Fi Meets Hi-Camp LP )

Hey handsome you
I'll take a guess
Your sitting pretty butt and awful mess

Alone on earth
Unwanted guest
An ugly duckling in a peacocks nest

Come out, come out
Stop hiding in your shell and dream alone
Come out, come out
Show your sparkling eyes and part the clouds

But don't despair
I'm on your side
A topsy turvy saviour in the night

So follow me
The melody
Who'll turn you inside out and set you free

Come out, come out
Stop hiding in your shell and dream alone
Come out, come out
Show your sparkling eyes and part the clouds

What's in, all this for me?
Why should a stranger care?
The sky would be a lonely place
Without a star in sight
Oh, simply bring your lovely gaze 
Stars shine down on me

Hey handsome you
By now I guess
You're more than pretty-pretty, nothing less

Queen of the earth
The honored guest
A knight in shiny armour on a quest

Come out, come out
Stop hiding in your shell and dream alone
Come out, come out
Show your sparkling eyes and part the clouds

Come out, come out
Stop hiding in your shell and dream alone
come out, come out
Show your sparkling eyes and part the clouds

Come out - stars shine down on me
Come out - stars shine down on me

Come out
Come out - stars shine down me!
Come out, come out, come out

Flirt

( Snowblow featuring E. Torrini )

Do your flirting in my other ear
A vague little clue as to how you feel
But where will you be when the lights go out?

(Digging up bones that reveal what you're all about!)

Before i touch you i would like to think
Of black hair and butterfly milk
Ingredients of your gift

Did you know that angels go to war
And that it's you that they're killing for?
So where will you be when the lights go out?

(Banging my drums with your bones as you scream and shout!)

Before i touch you i would like to think
Of black hair and butterfly milk
Ingredients of your gift

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

Frank Mills

( Hàrið )

First þegar hitti'ég Frank Mills
Þá var fimmtándi sepember. 
Ég hitti hann einmitt hér. 
Hann sagði mér hvar hann býr. 
Svo gleymdi ég því. 
Síðan hef ég ekki séð hann aftur 
honum svipar í sjón George Harrisonar 
nema´ að hárið á honum er alltaf greitt aftur í tagl. 

Ég elska´ hann mjög heitt en samt vil ég síður 
sjást með hann mér við hlið. 
Ég held hann búi í Brooklyn. 
Hann er með hjálm á hausnum 
og í gatslitnum gallabuxum 
og leðurjakka sem letraðer á 
“María Mamma og “Hell´s Angels.” 

Mikið þætti mér vænt um ef þið 
mynduð sjá hann að þið 
segðuð við hann hitti mig hér 
og að mig langi ekki´í aurinn 
aftur sem hann sníkti af mér 
helldur hann.

Gollum's song

( Lord of the ring - The two towers soundtrack )

Where once was light, now darkness falls.
Where once was love, love is no more.
Don't say goodbye.
Don't say I didn't try.

These tears we cry,
Are falling rain
For all the lies you told us,
The hurt, the blame.
And we will weep
To be so alone.
We are lost,
We can never go home.

So in the end,
I'll be what I will be,
No loyal friend,
Was ever there for me.
Now we say goodbye,
We say you didn't try.

These tears you cry,
Have come too late.
Take back the lies,
The hurt, the blame.
And you will weep
When you face the end alone.
You are lost,
You can never go home.

You are lost, you can never go home...

Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes

( Thievery Corporation )

Do you applaud fear
Do you hold it near
Are you afraid to live your life
The way I perceive
In my arms I’ll catch you
Do you mind If I always love you

Heaven’s gonna burn your eyes

You’ll see
In my dream I’ll catch you
Into my arms I’ll catch you
Do you mind if I always love you

Heaven’s gonna burn your eyes

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

Hold Your Hand

( Paul Oakenfold )

Maybe I find it hard
Watching you live
Maybe I find the truth
Questions I can’t bare
Feeling so tired
I’m wondering where
Selfish love inspires

Are you there to hold my hand?
Saving me who I spy

Maybe you are the rain
Who makes my eyes closed
Ocean’s grey and grey
Feeling my despair
Your happy smile is broken
I’m wondering there
Selfish love has spoken
(Selfish love has spoken)

Are you here to hold?
Are you there to hold my hand?
Selfish love has spoken
Saving me who I spy (x3)

If you go away

( Brel / Schumann / To be free EP )

If you go away
On this summer day
Then you might as well
Take the sun away
All the birds that flew
In the summer sky
When our love was new
And our hearts were high
And the day was young
And the nights were long
And the moon stood still
For the night bird's song

If you go away
If you go away
If you go away...

But if you stay
I'll make you a day
Like no day has been
Or will be again
We'll sail on the sun
We'll ride on the rain
And talk to the trees
And worship the wind

But if you go
I'll understand
Leave me just enough love
To fill up my hand


If you go away
If you go away
If you go away...

If you go away
As I know you will
You must tell the world
To stop turning
'til you return again
If you ever do
For what good is love
Without loving you?
Can I tell you now
As you turn to go
I'll be dying slowly
'til the next hello

If you go away
If you go away
If you go away...

But if you stay
I'll make you a night
Like no night has been
Or will be again
I'll sail on your smile
I'll ride on your touch
I'll talk to your eyes
That I love so much

But if you go
I won't cry
Though the good is gone
From the word goodbye

If you go away
If you go away
If you go away...

If you go away
As I know you must
There is be nothing left
In this world to trust
Just an empty room
Full of empty space
Like the empty look
I see on your face
And I'd been the shadow
Of your shadow
If you might have kept me
By your side

If you go away
If you go away
If you go away...

If you go away
If you go away
If you go away...

*** Thanx a lot to Michael & Salina for this one ***

Io e te

Ho camminato a lungo in questa notte
In quanto rischio te
E il mio passato si è chiuso con un forse
E su cosa è giusto

Le mie voglie confuse con le tue
La tua pelle sulla mia
E se chiudevo gli occhi vedevo i tuoi
E il mio domani ancora insieme a te

Due mondi così lontani, ma tanto uguali
In quest'universo d'incomprensioni
Nemici in questa guerra di paure
E in fondo amanti perché siamo in due

Siamo solo in due
Io e te
Papparappappa...

Siamo solo in due
Io e te
Papparappappa....

E poi piangendo mi hai chiesto se non ti amo
lo so
Non te lo dico mai
La vita spesso è dura, non me l'aspettavo
Sognavo e tu lo sai

Lontani nello stesso letto ci ritroviamo
Ognuno coi pensieri suoi
Ma so che la tua mano cerca la mia
Ti amo amore anche se io non te l'ho detto mai
Due mondi così lontani, ma tanto uguali
In quest'universo d'incomprensioni
Nemici in questa guerra di paure
E in fondo amanti perché siamo in due

Siamo solo in due
Ma so che la tua mano cerca la mia
Ti amo amore, anche se io non te l'ho detto mai
Io e te siamo solo in due, io e te, siamo solo in due...

*** Thanx a lot to Lili & my Dad & Paola who corrected US ! ***

English translation :

I've walked for a long time tonight, since I'm risking (to lose) you
and my past ends with a "maybe", and about what's right
My desires mixed up with yours, your skin on mine
and if I closed my eyes I saw yours, and my tomorrow still together with you

two worlds so far apart, but so similar, in this universe of incomprehensions
enemies in this war of frights, and after all lovers, since we're two,
we're just two, I and you...
we're just two, I and you...

And then you asked me crying if I don't love you, I know, I never tell you
life is often hard, I didn't expect so, I was dreaming and you know that

We find ourselves far apart in the same bed, each one with his own thoughts
but I know your hand looks for mine
I love you, honey, even if I've never told you

two worlds so far apart, but so similar, in this universe of incomprehensions
enemies in this war of frights, and after all lovers, since we're two,
we're just two, I and you...

but I know your hand is looking for mine
I love you honey even if I've never told you
I and you are just two, I and you...
are just two...

Is Jesus your pal ?

( Gus Gus )

Is Jesus your pal?
Do you call out his name,
When your concience is shivering?

Do you need someone too,
Just like those people who
Find peace in someone's promises?
You sure don't need my promises...

So come and sit on my box,
Enjoy the view of this water,
Where my lifeboat is sinking.

If you open your eyes,
Take a look at this mess,
Could you fake your reflection, child?

If you reach out for more,
You'll find nothing but sorrow.
'Cause knowledge is hollow.
And pride is hard to swallow.

So come and sit on my box,
Take a view of this water,
Where my lifeboat is sinking.

Lay down

( Stone Free LP )

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside, each other's wounds
We all had caught, the same disease
We all sang, the songs of peace 

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night

Oh, raise them higher again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain 

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside, each other's wounds
We all had caught, the same disease
We all sang, the songs of peace 

Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep
The dark away

Some came to sing
Some came to pray
Some came to keep
The dark away

So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the night

Oh raise them high again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain 

Lay down lay down
Lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown ...

Love in the time of science

( From DIP - Lo-Fi Meets Hi-Camp LP )

Thinnnnnnnk of me
Very scientifically
Share your thoughts with me
Send them over land and sea

They seep through walls
Echo down abandoned halls
They cling to skin
And penetrate the bones within

Let me see your joy and fear
Be you far away, so near

How can it be, we never seem to see
What we have until it's gone

Why is it so, we never know
What we have until it's gone

The more i try
All the faster you'll slip by
There things are never free
But then again, they shouldnt be

So vaaaaaporize
Slide to me like liquid ice
I loooooong to be
The object of your school, see me

I can see into your eyes
The deepest blue of winter skies

Why is it so, we never know
What we have until it's gone

Until we burn, we'll never learn
What we have until it's gone

Ssssscientificl-cl-cl-cl-cl

Sssscientificl-cl-cl-cl-cl

I can see into your eyes
The deepest blue of winter skies!

Why is it so, we never know
What we have until it's gone

Until we burn, we never learn
What we have until it's gone

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

Ruby Tuesday

( Rolling Stones / Stone Free LP )

She would never say
Where she came from
Yesterday don't matter
'Cause it's gone

While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No-one knows
She comes and then she goes

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Don't ask her why
She needs to be free
She is gonna tell you
It's the only way to be

She just can't be chained
To a life where nothing's gained
And nothing's lost
But, oh, such a cost

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Oh, there's no time to lose
I heard her say
You gotta catch your dreams
Before they run away

Dying all the time
Lose your dreams and you
Might lose your mind
Is life unkind?

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Goodbye, ruby tuesday
Who is gonna hang that name on you?
And when you change with every new day
Still I'm gonna miss you

Goodbye, ruby tuesday ...

7-Up Days
 
( Unemployed in summertime EP )

Early morning when the sky is black
And your fingers taste of really strong spice
Early morning when the sky is black
All my kisses hit you right between the eyes

I'm going out of here for the last time
I'm going out of here for the last time

  Did you know that i won't be back
When you wake up you probably realized
Did you know that i won't be back
I'll escape your whispers, your true lies

I'm going out of here for the last time
I'm going out of here for the last time

Do you feel the loneliness
It moves away now
It moves away now
Do you feel the loneliness
It's here to stay now
It's here to stay...

I'm going out of here for the last time
I'm going out of here for the last time

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

Tvaer stjörnur

( Megad => Megasarlog LP  )

Tíminn flýgur áfram
Og hann teymir mig á eftir sér
Og ekki fæ ég miklu ráðið
Um það hvert hann fer

En ég vona bara hann hugsi
Soldið hlýlega til mín
Og leiði mig á endanum
Aftur upp til þín

Ég gaf þér forðum keðju
úr gulli um hálsinn þinn
Svo gleymdir þú mér ekki
í dagsins amstri nokkurt sinn

í augunum þínum svörtu
horfði ég á sjálfan mig um hríð
og ég vonaði að
ég fengi bara
að vera þar alla tíð

Það er margt sem angrar
en ekki er það þó biðin
því ég sé það fyrst á rykinu
hve langur tími er liðinn

og ég skrifa þar eitthvað með fingrinum
sem skiptir öllu máli
því að nóttin mín
er dimm og ein
og dagurrin á báli

Já og andlitið þitt málað
hve ég man það alltaf skýrt
augnlínur og bleikar varir brosið svo hýrt

jú ég veit vel að ókeypis
er allt það sem er best
en svo þarf ég
að greiða dýru
verði það sem er vest

Ég sakna þín í birtingu
að hafa þig ekki við hlið mér

og ég sakna þín á daginn
þegar sólin brosir við mér

og ég sakna þín á kvöldin
þegar dimman dettur á

en ég sakna þín mest á nóttinni
er svipirnir fara á stjá

Svo lít ég upp og sé
við erum saman þarna tvær
stjörnur á blárri festingunni
sem færast nær og nær

ég man þig þegar augun mín
eru opin hverja stund
en þegar ég
nú legg þau aftur
fer ég á þinn fund

*** Thanx a lot to lili and Arnaud for this one ***

10 to 20

( Sneaker Pimps / Live track )

(I will lie no more)

Different ways of counting
Fingers running thru your hair
Ten to twenty or some
Thirty days and nights not there

And we do not forget
To vent the secret
So kind of you to spare
Or just to me and someone's care

So fall like the snow
Too much to slow
So fragile to say
Hanging over every day

A breeze with contempt
To shame the others
A story so thin
To cover all your lovers

(I will lie no more)

Count me out your standards
Shadows trade in competence
Ten to twenty answers
Shouting down on confidence

Too easy not to share
Of fear of loathing
So kind of you to bear
Or just a need in someone's care

So fall like the snow
Too much to slow
So fragile to say
Hanging over every day

A breeze with contempt
To shame the others
A story so thin
To call to all your lovers

(I will lie no more)

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

The Sound of Silence

(Simon and Garfunkel / Stone Free LP )

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools" said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you."
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets
are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls."
And whisper'd in the sounds of silence.

Until the Morning

( Thievery Corporation )

I keep on fear, keep on loathing
Nothing brings it on, I keep on falling
Decide what it is I can not find
It's subsides what you make it
Never feel like you're gonna break it
It's gonna be alright alright now
Sleep until the morning comes
The sun will warm your soul
Sleep on, till the morning comes for you, okay yeah
'Til the morning it's alright
I can walk into the sunlight, into the day, into the day, to the day
I feel it falling, nothing comes to my mind
Bring it on in a different tide
I feel alright, alright now
I feel strong, I feel rigid
It's nothing to do with the vision
Oh feels so right, so right
Sleep on tight, sleep on tight
Sleep on, till the sunlight
Sleep on, till the sunlight
Sleep on tight
Sleep on tight
Sleep on tight
Sleep on tight, till the sunlight
Sleep on tight, till the sunlight burns you happy
Till the sunlight burns you happy
Till the sunlight burns a happy whole in your heart
In your heart
In your heart...

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

Vanishing

( LHOOQ featuring Emiliana Torrini )

I'm breaking my lead to life
Feel like im floating
Got to make up my mind

Darkness pouring on me
Feel i got to move along
Leave it all behind me

Following down

I'm going to lose my mind
If you love me again
Vanished without a trace
Feel so strang and so alone
Can't feel without you

I'm falling down
Falling down
I'm falling down
Falling down

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

Weird friendless kid

( Eg White / Louis Elliott / To be free EP)

Weird friendless kid
You don't know where you live
No one knows a thing about you
No one ever did
Weird friendless kid
You might be weird but you're not stupid
We’ve all seen the pictures you drew
We know what’s in your head
Uninvitedchild
But you never seem to mind
Eating from your purple lunchbox
While we are talk about you
About you
It's alright to stay
Nobody gets away
Except you
Why you're like you are ?
Do you think you're a star
La la la la....
I sometimes think I'd like to speak to you
And find out who you are
Uninvited guest
You won't fitin withall the rest
Just a bubble in a perfect paintjob
Well we are talk about you
Talk about you
Talk about you
Just a bubble in a perfect paintjob
Brings everybody down
Yes you do
It's alright to stay
Nobody gets away
Except you
Why you're like you are ?
Do you think you're a star
La la la la....
Dipin’ fromyour purple lunchbox
It's alright you know
You can come as you are
La la la la....
And if it's like you say
You got a chance to move away
One bye, one, we'll knock on your door
Tell how we feel like
Or how we felt about you
Feel about you
Feel about you
Felt about you
Feel about you

*** Thanx a lot to Michael and Megan for this one ***

White rabbit

( Jefferson Airplane / Stone Free LP )

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell him a hookah-smokin' caterpillar
Has given you the call

And call Alice when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you have just have some kind of mushroom
And your mind is movin' low

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

And logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head

Remember
What the doormouse said
Feed your head
Feed your head

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

Why ?

( Gus Gus )

Tomorrow is just another day
When I let the sunshine meet my conscience
You told me stories, gave me new ideas
Pretend only you, you know the answers

I wait longing for you baby
Hmm-mmm-mmm
There's no one around me
Wanting me
'Cause you know, and I know
Enough to understand
I'm a warm waiting idol
Above

Is this what you want?
Do you want a piece of mine?
Tell me now

Are you short of cash?
Our thing was made to last
Tell me, tell me now

Tell me why

Yet another day is waiting
Now, love don't mean nothing
'Cause I'm alive
Hear me out!
Hear me out!
I'm calling, strolling
With an airplane ticket
But nowhere to go
Nowhere to go...

Is this what you want?
Do you want a piece of mine?
Tell me now

Are you short of cash?
Our thing was made to last
Tell me, tell me now

Tell me now

Is this what you want?
Do you want a piece of mine?
Tell me now

Are you short of cash?
Our thing was made to last
Tell me, tell me now
Tell me, tell me now
Tell me, tell me now

Tell me why
