In the summer of 2003, aged just 18 and still studying at the Brit School of Performing Arts in leafy Surrey, no-one, least of all Katie, would have predicted what the next few years would hold for the teenager. 4 years later, Katie has sold more than 7.5 million albums becoming, in 2006, the year's best selling British female in the world along the way. Georgian born Katie relocated from Tbilisi to Belfast at the age of 8 due to her father's profession as a heart surgeon and 5 years later moved to South East London. After her GCSEs Katie joined the Brit School for Performing Arts where she undertook a BTEC and Music A-level and discovered different styles of music including Queen, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Irish folk music and Indian music. On hearing an Eva Cassidy song Katie was blown away and when she discovered that Eva was no longer alive wrote the song ‘Faraway Voice' as a tribute to her. It was this song that attracted the attention of the composer and producer Mike Batt. Katie signed to Batt's record label Dramatico but stayed at the Brit School to complete her studies – she graduated with distinction in July 2003. During the summer of 2003 her debut single, ‘The Closest Thing To Crazy', attracted the attention of British station BBC Radio 2 and upon its release entered the charts at number 10. Released in November, Katie's debut album ‘Call Off The Search' hit the UK number 1 spot in January 2004 and has subsequently scored top 10 positions throughout Europe. The album has since been certified gold in Holland, Hong Kong and Switzerland, platinum in Denmark, New Zealand and Australia, 2 x platinum in Germany, Ireland, Norway and South Africa and received the IFPI Double Platinum Award for 2 million European Sales. In March 2005 ‘Call Off The Search' hit the number 1 spot in Denmark, a year after its initial release and became a top five album in Japan. Katie was awarded Best International Newcomer at Germany's ECHO Awards in April 2005. In Britain, Katie was the highest selling female artist in 2004 – ‘Call Off The Search' has now sold 1.8 million copies and is 6 x platinum (in Britain alone) and worldwide sales exceed 3.5 million.

Katie joined the line up for the Band Aid 20 single to record a new version of ‘Do They Know It's Christmas'. As an ambassador for Save The Children this was particularly poignant for Katie. In March 2005 Katie was invited by Nelson Mandela to perform at his 46664 concert in aid of Mandela's AIDS foundation. In addition to performing a full live set, Katie joined Queen on stage to perform a moving version of ‘Too Much Love Will Kill You'. Katie flew from South Africa to Sri Lanka where she experienced the work that is being done by Save The Children, particularly with child soldiers. In August 2005 Katie and her family swore allegiance to The Queen and became British Citizens following a ceremony in Surrey, England. Katie was asked to perform at the Royal Wedding of Prince Pieter-Christiaan in Holland and at the Norwegian Royal Gala Concert in the presence of the Crown Prince Of Norway. Continuing the royal theme, the American TV show ‘Good Morning America' broadcast live from Buckingham Palace and Katie was invited by the show to perform ‘Nine Million Bicycles' and ‘The Closest Thing To Crazy'. Katie performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony in Norway. In between her overseas travel Katie recorded her new album, ‘Piece By Piece', which was released in Europe on September 26th 2005. The album comprises more self-penned songs including the title track as well as a cover of the 1987 Cure hit ‘Just Like Heaven' that Katie recorded for a new DreamWorks film starring Reese Witherspoon. The first single, ‘Nine Million Bicycles', preceded the album release and gave Katie her highest UK single chart entry at number 5. 1 week later and Katie entered the UK album charts at number 1 and Europe swiftly followed with the album reaching #1 in Norway, Denmark and Holland, #2 in Ireland, #2 in Iceland, #3 in South Africa, #4 in Poland and #2 in Germany giving an overall chart position of #2 on the Billboard European Top 100 Chart.

Katie was nominated for two Brit Awards in the “Best Female” and “Pop” categories, for the “Best International Female” at the Edison Awards in Holland and was awarded “Best International Female (Rock & Pop)” at the Echo Awards in Germany. Once again Katie was pronounced the highest selling female artist in Britain in 2005 selling more than 1 million albums. It is fair to say that 2006 was yet another extraordinary year for 22 year old Katie. In addition to the awards nominations, Katie had a Dutch tulip named in her honour, toured America coast to coast, raced at 160mph round Grand Prix circuit Silverstone, flew a plane, launched Save The Children's ‘Rewrite The Future' campaign, made the headlines with a Guinness World Record for the deepest concert when she performed 303 meters beneath the North Sea in the leg of a gas rig and was awarded the World Music Award for Britain's Biggest Selling Female. Whilst in 2004 and 2005 Katie was the greatest selling female artist in Britain, in 2006 Katie was the highest selling European female artist in the world selling more than 3 million copies of her second album ‘Piece By Piece'. Awarded the Golden Camera Award for International Pop Artist at the start of 2007 Katie was presented with the Echo Award for International Female Artist in March 2007. October 2007 will see the release of Katie's third album ‘Pictures' – a record that will delight her legions of fans, confirm Katie's status as a unique and remarkable vocalist, and reveal the third chapter in what is destined to be a long musical career.

Call Off The Search

Call off the search

I won't spend my life
Waiting for an angel to descend
Searching for a rainbow with an end
Now that i've found you
I'll call off the search

And I won't spend my life
Gazing at the stars up in the sky
Wondering if love will pass me by
Now that i've found you
I'll call off the search

Out on my own I would never have known
This world that I see today
And i've got a feeling
It won't fade away

And I won't end my days
Wishing that love would come along
Cause you are in my life where you belong
Now that i've found you
I'll call off the search

Now that i've found you
I'll call off the search

Now that i've found you
I'll call off the search

Crawling up a hill

( John Mayall )

Every morning about half past eight
My Mummer wakes me says ”Don't be late”
Get to the office, tryin' to concentrate
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill.

So I stop one day to figure it out
I'll quit my job without a shadow of a doubt
To sing the blues that I know about
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill

Minute after minute
Second after second
Hour after hour goes by
Working for a rich girl
Staying just a poor girl
Never stop to wonder why

So here I am in London town
A better scene I'm gonna be around
The kind of music that won't bring me down
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill

Every morning about half past eight
My Mummer wakes me says, ”Don't be late”
Get to the office, tryin' to concentrate
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill

So I stop one day to figure it out
I'll quit my job without a shadow of a doubt
To sing the blues that I know about
My life is just a slow train crawling up a hill

Minute after minute
Second after second
Hour after hour goes by
Working for a rich girl
Staying just a poor girl
Never stop to wonder why

So here I am in London town
A better scene I'm gonna be around
The kind of music that won't bring me down
Life is just a slow train

So, so, so, here I am in London town
A better scene I¹m gonna be around
The kind of music that won't bring me down
My life is just a slow train
Crawling up a hill

The closest thing to crazy

How can I think I'm standing strong
Yet feel the air beneath my feet
How can happiness feel so wrong
How can misery feel so sweet

How can you let me watch you sleep
Then break my dreams the way you do
How can I have got in so deep
Why did i fall in love with you

This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen
This is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known
But I was never crazy on my own
And now I know that there's a link between the two
Being close to craziness, and being close to you

How can you let me fall apart
Then break my fall with lovin lies
It's so easy to break a heart
It's so easy to close your eyes

How can you treat me like a child
Yet like a child I yearn for you
How can anyone feel so wild
How can anyone feel so blue

This is the closest thing to crazy I have ever been
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen.
This is the nearest thing to crazy I have ever known.
I was never crazy on my own
And now I know that there's a link between the two
Being close to craziness, and being close to you

And being close to you
And being close to you

My aphrodisiac is you

Some people say
That oysters make you come on strong
But I don't buy it
I don't believe my diet turns me on

Won't take no pills
That's the last thing that I need to do
I can't deny it
My aphrodisiac is you

Alright, I could sniff some powdered rhino horn
And go to bed in rubber gloves
But I don't need no stimulation
Potions, balms or embrocation
I'm in love in other words

Don't smoke no grass
Or opium from old Hong Kong
That hubble-bubble
Just makes me see you double
All night long

Don't waste my time
With Spanish fly and roots to chew
They cause me trouble
Because my aphrodisiac is you

Alright, I could sniff some powdered rhino horn
And go to bed in rubber gloves
But I don't need no stimulation
Potions, balms or embrocation
I'm in love in other words

Some people like
To read the khama sutra first
But I don't need it
I think if I should read it
I'd be worse
Don't ask me why
Because baby, I ain't got a clue
I just concede it
My aphrodisiac is you

Learnin' the blues

The tables are empty
The dance floor's deserted
You play the same love song
It's the tenth time you've heard it
That's the beginning
Just one of the clues
You've had your first lesson
In learnin' the blues

The cigarettes you light
One after another
Won't help you forget her
And the way that you love her
You're only burning
A torch you can't lose
But you're on the right track
For learnin' the blues

When you're at home alone
The blues will taunt you constantly
When you're out in a crowd
The blues will haunt your memory

The nights when you don't sleep
The whole night you're crying
You just can't forget her
Soon you even stop trying
You'll walk the floor
And wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break
You're learnin' the blues

Blame it on the moon

Gonna blame it on the moon
Didn't want to fall in love again so soon

I was fine, feeling strong
Didn't want to fall in love with anyone

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt
I'll blame it on the moon
'Cause it's not my fault
I didn't think I'd this would happen so soon
So i'll blame it on the moon

I was happy to be free
Didn't think I'd give myself so easily

Guilty feelings in the night
As I wonder is it wrong to feel so right

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt
I'll blame it on the moon
'Cause it's not my fault
I didn't think I'd this would happen so soon
So i'll blame it on the moon

Gonna blame it on the moon
Didn't want to fall in love again so soon

I was fine, feeling strong
Didn't want to fall in love with anyone

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt
I'll blame it on the moon
'Cause it's not my fault
I didn't think I'd this would happen so soon
So i'll blame it on the moon
So i'll blame it on the moon

Belfast

I've got a ticket to the fast city
Where the bells don't really ring
Getting off the plane the cold air
Rushes like bullets through my brain

And I'm divided between penguins and cats
But it's not about what animal you've got
It's about being able to fly
It's about dying nine times

Walked on Broadway, going up to falls
With the old man I used to know
The paintings on the walls of release
Are colourful but they are no Matisse

And I'm divided between penguins and cats
But it's not about what animal you've got
It's about being able to fly
It's about dying nine times

It's about being able to fly
It's about dying nine times

I think it's going to rain today

( Randy Newman )

Broken windows and empty hallways
A pale dead moon in the sky streaked with gray
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Scarecrows dressed in the latest styles
With frozen smiles to chase love away
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Lonely, lonely
Tin can at my feet
Think i'll kick it down the street
That's the way to treat a friend

Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it's going to rain today

Mockingbird

Hush now, Honey, here's the word
My Baby's gonna buy me a mockingbird
And If that mockingbird won't sing
Baby's gonna buy me a diamond ring
If that diamond ring won't shine
We'll still have a real good time
So I'm sitting right here
Woah, woah

To this man that I have found
I'm gonna sing the sweetest sound
And if that sweetest sound won't rock
I'm gonna buy him a music box
And if that music box don't play
He's gonna stay with me anyway
So I'm making it clear
Woah, woah

When that man and I are wed
I'm gonna keep him warm in bed
And when my man's no longer hot
I'm gonna bring him a vodka shot
And when that spirit's made him strong
I'm gonna stay with him all night long
I'll be holding on tightly
Woah, woah

He's gonna buy me a mockingbird

Tiger in the night

You are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
You are the one who keeps me strong in this world

You sleep by the silent cooling streams
Down in the darkness of my dreams
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I'd see come true
You are the tiger burning bright

I was the one who looked so hard I could not see.
Now I could never live without the love you give to me.

I lived like a wild and lonely soul
Lost in a dream beyond control.
You were the one who brought me home down to earth.

For you are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I'd see come true
You are the tiger burning bright

Faraway Voice

Whoo...

Faraway voice
We can hear you whoo voice
What's it like to be heard
But from you not a word

Are you over those hills
Do you still hum the old melodies
Do you wish people listened
Over here with me

Whoo...

Faraway voice
What I would give to hear that voice
What's it like to breath
My ears deceive me voice

And I will walk with you on a summers
And I will talk to you
Though you're faraway
And we'll sing through the years

Are you over those hills
Do you still hum the old melodies
Do you wish people listened
Over here with me
Over here with me
Over here with me

Whoo...

Lilac Wine

( Nina Simone )

I lost myself on a cool damp night
Gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree
I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see
And be what I want to be

When I think more than I want to think
Do things I never should do
I drink much more than I ought to drink
Because I brings me back you

Lilac wine
Is sweet and heady
Like my love
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady
Like my love
Listen to me...
I cannot see clearly
Isn't that he
Coming to me nearly here

Lilac wine
Is sweet and heady
Where's my love
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady
Where's my love

Listen to me
Why is everything so hazy
Isn't that he
Or am I just going crazy, dear

Lilac Wine
I feel unready
For my love...

Piece By Piece

Shy boy

I'm sittin' in the window of a street café
Watchin' you walking by each day
It seems that you always wanna look my way
Hey, you can't deny, boy
You're such a shy boy

So good looking you seem to be
But you're too tongue-tied to say hi to me
You could make it happen so easily
Woah, i'll tell you why boy
'Cos i'm looking for a shy boy

Most guys advertise
By making eyes and telling lies
If you only knew
You could make your dreams come true
All you gotta do is ask me to

If this was a quiz on a tv show
And the prize was a guy who would love me so
Whatever they ask, the answer i know
Hey, my reply boy
Is gimme a shy boy

Most guys advertise
By making eyes and telling lies
If you only knew
You could make your dreams come true
All you gotta do is ask me to

Some guys act a bit too sure
And maybe you're thinkin' that less is more
But honey, you still gotta knock on my door
Hey, just try boy
And you could be my boy

I'll tell you why boy
I'm looking for a shy boy
Just try boy, you're such a shy boy

Nine Million Bicycles

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a fact
It's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die

We are twelve billion light years from the edge
That's a guess
No-one can ever say it's true
But I know that I will always be with you

I'm warmed by the fire of your love everyday
So don't call me a liar
Just believe everything that I say

There are six billion people in the world
More or less
And it makes me feel quite small
But you're the one I love the most of all

We're high on the wire
With the world in our sight
And I'll never tire
Of the love that you give me every night

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a fact
It's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you till I die

And there are nine million bicycles in Beijing
And you know that I will love you till I die

Piece by piece

First of all must go
Your scent upon my pillow
And then i'll say goodbye
To your whispers in my dreams
And then our lips will part
In my mind and in my heart
Cos your kiss
Went deeper than my skin

Piece by piece
Is how i'll let go of you
Kiss by kiss
Will leave my mind one at a time
One at a time

First of all must fly
My dreams of you and i
There's no point of holding on to those
And then our ties will break
For your and my own sake
Just remember
This is what you chose

Piece by piece
Is how i'll let go of you
Kiss by kiss
Will leave my mind one at a time
One at a time

I'll shed like skin
Our memories of lazy days
And fade away the shadow of your face

Piece by piece
Is how i'll let go of you
Kiss by kiss
Will leave my mind one at a time
One at a time
One at a time
One at a time

Halfway up the hindu kush

The first time that i saw you
I said "for goodness sake
That man's got the power
He's a charmer with a snake"
I was thrille and fascinated
But somehow liberated
When you took me to a place i'd never been.
You showed me lots of things i'd never seen

You set me free
As if you'd taken me
Halfway up the hindu kush
And i love you
For showing me the view
From halfway up the hindu kush

The next time that i saw you, you looked into my eyes
I was sitting on your carpet when i felt it begin to rise
I kinda got the feeling
I was floating to the ceiling
Instead of looking at the sky
You picked me up and showed me how to fly

You set me free, as if you'd taken me
Halfway up the hindu kush
And i love you
For showing me the view
From halfway up the hindu kush

From halfway up the hindu
From halfway up the hindu
From halfway up the hindu kush

You set me free, as if you'd taken me
Halfway up the hindu kush
And i love you
For showing me the view
From halfway up the hindu kush
Halfway up the hindu kush

Blues in the night

My mamma done told me
When i was in pigtails
My mamma done told me, "hon
A man is a two-face
He'll give you the big eye
And when the sweet talking's done
A man is a two-face
A worrisome thing who'll leave you to sing
The blues in the night."

Now the rains a-fallin'
Hear the trains a-callin', "whooee!"
Hear the lonesome whistle
Blowin' across the trestle, "whooee!"
A-whooee-ah-whooee, clickety-clack
Comes echoing back
The blues in the night

From natchez to mobile
From memphis to st. Joe
Wherever the four winds blow
I've been in some big towns
And heard me some big talk
But there is one thing i know
A man is a two-face, a worrisome thing who'll leave you to sing
The blues in the night

My mamma done told me
When i was in pig tails
My mamma done told me, "hon
A man is a two-face
He'll give you the big eye
And when the sweet talking's done
A man is a two-face
A worrisome thing
Who'll leave you to sing
The blues in the night

My mamma done told me

Spider's web

If a black man is racist, is it okay
When it's the white man's racism that made him that way
Because the bully's the victim they say
By some sense they're all the same

Because the line between
Wrong and right
Is the width of a thread
From a spider's web
The piano keys are black and white
But they sound like a million colours in your mind

I could tell you to go to war
Or i could march for peace and fighting no more
How do i know which is right
And i hope he does when he sends you to fight

Because the line between wrong and right
Is the width of a thread from a spider's web
The piano keys are black and white
But they sound like a million colours in your mind

Should we act on a blame
Or should we chase the moments away
Should we live
Should we give
Remember forever the guns and the feathers in time
Because the line between wrong and right
Is the width of a thread from a spider's web
The piano keys are black and white
But they sound like a million colours in your mind
The piano keys are black and white
But they sound like a million colours in your mind

But they sound like a million colours in your mind

Blue shoes

These blue shoes seem to suit me well
When i feel like hell
As i do now that you're gone
Lost and lonely since you stopped caring
I've been wearing my new shoes
I've been wearing my blue shoes

You and i made the perfect pair
It don't seem fair
I loved you more than you know
Sorry i'm such a sorry state
But while i wait for some good news
I'll be wearing my blue shoes

Don't feel like walking strong
Shufflin' along on my way home
Trudgin' down that shopping street
Where we used to meet
But i ain't buying
I'm wearing my blue shoes and crying

These blue shoes seem to suit my sould
Since you shot that hole
Since you shot that hole in my heart
And if i wind up on the sidewalk bleeding
I won't be needing my new shoes
Won't be needing my blue shoes

These blue shoes seem to suit me well
When i feel like hell
As i do now that you're gone
Lost and lonely since you stopped caring
I've been wearing my new shoes
I've been wearing my blue shoes

On the road again

Well i'm so tired of cryin' but i'm out on the road again
I'm on the road again.
Well i'm so tired of cryin' but i'm out on the road again
I'm on the road again.
I ain't got no woman just to call my special friend

And i'm going to leave the city, got to go away
I'm going to leave the city, got to go away
All this fussing and fighting, man i sure can't stay

You know the first time i travelled out in the rain and snow
In the rain and snow
You know the first time i travelled out in the rain and snow
In the rain and snow
I didn't have no fellow, not even no place to go

And my dear mother left me when i was quite young
When i was quite young
And my dear mother left me when i was quite young
When i was quite young
She said "lord have mercy on my wicked son."

Take a hint from me mama please don't you cry no more
Don't you cry no more
Take a hint from me mama please don't you cry no more
Don't you cry no more
Cause it's soon one morning down the road i'm gone

But i ain't going down that long and lonesome road
All by myself
But i ain't going down that long and lonesome road
All by myself
I can't carry you baby, gonna carry somebody else

Thank you stars

Some call it faith, some call it love
Some call it guidance from above
You are the reason we found ours
So thank you stars

Some people think it's far away
Some know it's with them everyday
You are the reason we found ours
So thank you stars

There are no winds that can blow it away on the air
When they try to blow it away 's when you know it will always be there

To some it's the strength to be apart
To some it's a feeling in the heart
And when you're out there on your own, it's the way back home

There are no winds that can blow it away on the air
When they try to blow it away 's when you know it will always be there

Some call it faith, some call it love
Some call it guidance from above
You are the reason we found ours
So thank you stars
Thank you stars
Thank you stars
Thank you stars

Just like heaven

Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream he said
The one that makes me laugh he said
And threw his arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And i promise you i promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed his face and kissed his head
And dreamed of all the different ways i had
To make him glow
Why are you so far away, he said
Why won't you ever know that i'm in love with you
That i'm in love with you

You, soft and only
You,lost and lonely
You, strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe his name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only boy i loved
And drowned him deep inside of me

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

I Cried For You

You're beautiful so silently
It lies beneath a shade of blue
It struck me so violently
When I looked at you

But others pass, the never pause
To feel that magic in your hand
To me you're like a wild rose
They never understand why

I cried for you
When the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper

I'll cross the sea for a different world
With your treasure, a secret for me to hold

In many years they may forget
This love of ours or that we met
They may not know
How much you meant to me

I cried for you
And the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper

Without you now I see
How fragile the world can be
And I know you've gone away
But in my heart you'll always stay

I cried for you
And the sky cried for you
And when you went
I became a hopeless drifter
But this life was not for you
Though I learned from you
That beauty need only be a whisper
That beauty need only be a whisper

I do believe in love

They say we never landed on the moon
There's no wind there, they assume
I guess conspiracies are nothing new
But i'm sure i've been there with you

And i don't believe that in space
The only life is here on earth
How could we be the only race
That loves and hates 'til death from birth

But i do believe in love
Though i should never rely on love
Nothing else excites me
But loving you

Is it true a politician's heart
Can rust away and fall apart
I guess it must be hard
It must be hard
To know what's good
And to know what's easy

You might think it's strange
For all my wild ideas
But i do not believe that change
Can ever happen without tears

But i do believe in love
Though i should never rely on love
Nothing else excites me
But loving you

Pictures

Mary Pickford

Mary Pickford used to eat roses
Thought that they'd make her beautiful and they did,
One supposes.

Douglas Fairbanks, he was so handsome,
He wore a moustache,
Must-a had much cash, too,
Worth a king's ransom,

Charlie Chaplin, he was invited,
When these artists became united.
When these artists became united.

David Griffith worked as an extra,
Then as a stagehand,
Until they let him be
A director

Dave was brave, a mover and shaker,
A true pioneer,
He seemed to show no fear,
A real film maker

Just like Chaplin, he was invited,
When these artists became united.
When these artists became united.

They tied the knot together,
Groom and bride couldn't hide their pleasure.
They tried to pick fair weather,
But love died, didn't last forever.

It's all in my head

Every night we fall into bed,
But it's all in my head.
Every night we fall in a heap,
And you kiss me to sleep.
And baby all the sleepy things you say,
Blow me away.
Till the next day,
When I find what we did and we said,
Was all in my head.

Every night you whisper to me,
This always will be.
Every night you smooth down my hair,
But you're not really there.
And darling it seems as if we know,
Our love will grow.
And then the next day,
I find what we did and we said,
It was all in my head.

Drowsy, drinking,
I keep thinking,
We're not far apart.
Scared of waking,
Lonely, aching,
Just me and my hopeless heart.

Sleeping soundly,
Your arms around me.
Through the night we cruise,
Then I find it's in my mind,
That you stroke away my blues.

Every night we fall into bed,
But it's all in my head.
Every night we fall in a heap,
And you kiss me to sleep.
And baby all the sleepy things you say,

If the lights go out

They say the world must end somehow,
They say the end's not far from now;
I think they're wrong,
Don't worry your life away,
Start living for today,
Don't think about tomorrow.

And if the lights go out on all of us,
In just a year or two.
And if the sky falls down like pouring rain,
Then I'll be here with you.
I'll go down with you.

Well I'm gonna try for all I'm worth,
To stay with you till the end of the earth.
Don't let me down,
Don't let your feelings win.
Don't give out, and don't give in,
Don't think about tomorrow.

Cause if the lights go out on all of us,
In just a year or two.
And if the sky falls down like pouring rain,
Then I'll be here with you.
I'll go down with you.

And if the lights go out on all of us,
In just a year or two.

Then I'll be here with you.
I'll go down with you.

I'll go down with you.

What I miss about you

Missing the train every morning at 8:52,
Sipping coffee from the same cup as you.
The sharing of secrets we thought no one else knew,
That's what I miss about you.

The new way that love had made me see,
Your bashful grin when you asked if I would like your key.
The knowing way you used to caress me,
That's what I miss about you.

You stole in with your starry smile exciting me,
Driving with you in your new car, feeling free.
If it's true that love is blind, then I was blind willingly,
You made me feel we had a future, that could be and would be.

The way you said I'd be no one on my own,
Your habit of soaking yourself in over-priced cologne.
The way you turned the light out when I knew you were home,
That's what I don't miss about you.

I bet you're using your weary magic like it's new,
Driving so fast with a new fool beside you.
Presumably believing she's the last of the lucky few,
I wonder if she knows she's being lied to like I do.

The way I only doubted myself when I was with you,
Like I was a fool for expecting something from life too.
Your skill of putting me down in-front of everyone we knew
That's what I don't miss about you.

Spellbound

I heard that lately,
You've gone through a mysterious change.
People say you're secretive,
And you've been acting strange.
They say there's magic afoot stay away they all warn,
But to me you were magical from the day that you were born.

I have become spellbound,
Spellbound.
You lifted me up high,
Now I don't know how to get down.
I don't know how to get down.

You're very different,
You are so rare.
Some kind of witchcraft,
Is flying through the air.
I'll admit I can't explain why I feel how I do,
So you must have cast a spell,
That's why my life feels new.

I have become spellbound,
Spellbound.
You lifted me up high,
Now I don't know how to get down.
I don't know how to get down.

I have become spellbound,
Spellbound.
You lifted me up high,
Now I don't know how to get down.

What it says on the tin

How can I say it
Where do I begin
Everything you are is just what it says on the tin.

Words that were honest, spoken from the heart,
Everything you did was just what you said from the start.

You are the angel with whom I would gladly live in sin,
Thanks for being exactly what it says on the tin.
I never doubted, and though I never shouted from the roof,
All about it, I'm with you every day as living proof.

Ain't gonna lose now, such a lot to win,
‘Cos I will always know you're just what it says on the tin.

Scary films

Scary films don't scare me now,
That you're around.
Since you been around;
Nowadays I never cry,
When the monster kills the guy,
And the psychopathic wife kills the husband with a knife.

Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams,
Of all those horror scenes,
Which crept in uninvited.
I'm in love and I'm so excited,
Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams.

Scary films just make me smile,
When you are here.
When you are here.
In your arms I'm not afraid,
When the aliens invade.
And the vampire's just a joke,
‘Cause I know he's just a bloke.

Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams,
Of all those horror scenes,
Which crept in uninvited.
I'm in love and I'm so excited,
Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams.

Zombies marching through the mist,
Make me think of being kissed.
And I don't care when peoples' heads,
End up being torn to shreds.

Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams,
Of all those horror scenes,
Which crept in uninvited.
I'm in love and I'm so excited,
Hey baby, thanks for clearing my dreams.

Thanks for clearing my dreams

Perfect circle

A mask is easily placed,
On a betrayed and broken face.
A disguise to hide the past,
When you mapped out my skin and made the memories last.
Some things are never erased,
And I have run when I've been chased,
By recollections of you and me falling off our homemade castle.

And even when I'm walking straight I always end up in a perfect circle.
Oh I try but I just can't wait,
To break out of this perfect circle.
‘Cos giving into old temptation,
Is like that common twitch.
Oh the silly stupid realisation,
The more you scratch the more you itch.

Why am I fighting, what's it for,
Must let my mask drop to the floor.
My scars I shouldn't hide from the people who are on my side,
Rolling up my sleeves to fight against,
All the things I locked up and all the things I fenced.
But it's time to let it out so we can build a brand new castle.

And even when I'm walking straight I always end up in a perfect circle.
Oh I try but I just can't wait,
To break out of this perfect circle.
‘Cos giving into old temptation,
Is like that common twitch.
Oh the silly stupid realisation,
The more you scratch the more you itch.

And even when I'm walking straight I always end up in a perfect circle.
Oh I try but I just can't wait,
To break out of this perfect circle.
‘Cos giving into old temptation,

The more you scratch the more you itch.

The more you scratch the more you itch.

Ghost town

The thing that makes me feel the most down,
Is the feeling that I'm living in a ghost town.
Barn door bangin' in my face,
Like tumbleweed,
I'm rolling ‘round this place.

I see you arriving at the station,
But it's only my imagination.
So I'm begging on my knees,
Turn around,
And save me, baby, please.

From this ghost town,
I feel like giving in,
Since you left I'm living in,
An old ghost town.

Hey kid, I remember all the laughter,
Especially when we woke the morning after.
Why did you have to go away,
Leaving me to wander every day.

In this ghost town,
I feel like giving in,
Since you left I'm living in,
An old ghost town.

We were born to ride,
Side by side.
We are always reaching for the stars,
And they can still be ours.

(If you free me from this)

Ghost town,
I feel like giving in,
Since you left I'm living in,
An old ghost town.
I feel like giving in.
Since you left I'm living in,
An old ghost town.

I feel like giving in,
Since you left I'm living in,
An old ghost town.

Living in an old ghost town.

If you were a sailboat

If you were a cowboy I would trail you,
If you were a piece of wood I'd nail you to the floor.
If you were a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
If you were a river I would swim you,
If you were a house I would live in you all my days.
If you were a preacher I'd begin to change my ways.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was in jail I know you'd spring me,
If I was a telephone you'd ring me all day long.
If I was in pain I know you'd sing me soothing songs.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was hungry you would feed me,
If I was in darkness you would lead me to the light.
If I was a book I know you'd read me every night.

If you were a cowboy I would trail you,
If you were a piece of wood I'd nail you to the floor.
If you were sailboat I would sail you to the shore.

If you were a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
If you were a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.

Dirty Dice

Got an angel, on one shoulder and a devil on the other,
And his good advice that I take.
I live with a sprinkle of a little sin,
When the world is asleep I'm awake.

With the roll of my dirty dice,
I'm only following the devil's advice.
I'll take your love and leave my kind regards,
But I never cheat at cards.

So you really think you're leading,
When we tango across the floor.
It's only cause my feet are out of sight.
Mine is the hand that spins you round,
Then it pushes you out into the night.

With the roll of my dirty dice,
I'm only following the devil's advice.
I'll take your love and leave my kind regards,
But I never cheat at cards.

With the roll of my dirty dice,
I'm only following the devil's advice.
I'll take your love and leave my kind regards,
But I never cheat at cards.

In my secret life

( Leonard Cohen )

I saw you this morning,
You were moving so fast.
Can't seem to loosen my grip,
On the past.
And I miss you so much,
There's no one in sight.
And we're still making love,
In my secret life.

I smile when I'm angry.
I cheat and I lie.
I do what I have to do,
To get by.
But I know what is wrong,
And I know what is right.
And I'd die for the truth,
In my secret life.

Hold on, hold on, my brother,
My sister, hold on tight.
I finally got my orders,
I'll be marching through the morning.
Marching through the night,
Moving ‘cross the borders,
Of my secret life.

Looked through the paper,
Makes you want to cry.
Nobody cares if the people,
Live or die.
And the dealer wants you thinking,
That it's either black or white.
Thank God it's not that simple,
In my secret life.

I bite my lip.
I buy what I'm told.
From the latest hit,
To the wisdom of old.
But I'm always alone,
And my heart is like ice.
And it's crowded and cold,
In my secret life.

In my secret life.
In my secret life.
In my secret life.

The House

I'd Love To Kill You

I'd love to kill you with a kiss
I'd like to strike you down with bliss
I'd like to tie you up in knots
until your heart stops

I'd love to kill you with a glance
I'd like to put you in trance
I'd like to drug you with my scent
And use you in the moment

I'd love to kill you as you eat
The pleasure would taste so sweet
I'd like to open up your skin
And wander there within

I'd love to kill you by a stream
Where no one can hear my baby scream
And then I'd run away and be free
The sweetest victory

I love to watch you in your sleep
Cause you don't have power over me
And when you're awake I'm undone
Under you spell, in hell

The Flood

Broken people get recycled
And I hope that I will sometimes be thrown off the pathways
What I thought was my way home
Wasn't the place I know

No, I'm not afraid of changing,
Certain, nothing's certain
What we own becomes our prison
My possessions will be gone
Back to where they came from

Blame, no one is to blame
As natural as the rain that falls
Here comes the flood again

See the rock that you hold onto
Is it gonna save you
When the earth begins to crumble
Why'd you feel you have to hold on
Imagine if you let go

Blame, no one is to blame
As natural as the rain that falls
Here comes the flood again

Flush away the weight that pulls you down
Light the ways that freed from the dust

Don't trust your eyes
It's easy to believe them
Know in your heart
That you can leave a prison

Don't trust your mind
It's not always listening
Turn on the lights
And feel the ancient rhythm

Don't trust your eyes (no one is to blame)
It's easy to believe them
(as natural as the rain) Know in your heart
(here comes the Flood again)
That you can leave your prison

Blame, no one is to blame
As natural as the rain that falls
Here comes the flood again

A Happy Place

I'm going to find a happy
I'm going to find a happy
I'm going to find a happy place

Seven thousand eyes are watching
Marching home and no one's touching
Army of the city workers
Secretaries, lawyers, brokers
Heading for a London station
Heading for a quick salvation
Oblivious to cherry cola
Trying to sell to every stranger

Stuck here it's cold I'm standing
Hoping for some understanding
Only way to go is inside

I'm going to find a happy
I'm going to find a happy
I'm going to find a happy place

Seven thousand light years travel
Let my sense of time unravel
Trapped feelings are never ending
Send those weaknesses descending
Towards the earth's red centre
Let the fire rise and enter
Tap into the primal power
Rising like a giant tower

The energy receiving
Cut a hole right through the ceiling
People getting smaller as you fly

I'm going to find a happy
I'm going to find a happy
I'm going to find a happy place

(I'm gonna find a happy place) A happy Place
(I'm gonna find a happy place) A happy place
(I'm gonna find a happy place) A happy place

Find a star, send down a beam to where you are
An elevator of light taking you somewhere
Where you'll always be loved

I have found that stress and nonsense
Puts me in zone of avoidance
Could my mind be moving faster
Pulling like a super cluster
Can be hard to trust a feeling
But believing ends in seeing

We're going to find a happy
We're going to find a happy
We're going to find a happy place

(I'm gonna find a happy place) A happy place
(I'm gonna find a happy place) A happy place
(I'm gonna find a happy place) A happy place

A Moment Of Madness

A moment of madness
It's happened before
It could turn into sadness or a civil war
You've got me changing all I ever thought

When you first got so mad lost your rag
Trying to some save some trees
Angry cries, saw your thighs
And I fell to my knees
Oh my god what is this?
It's a moment of madness,

When we drank too much beer
Lost our fear
Our defences were down
You got up tried your luck
Bought a dubious round
It can be hard to resist
It's a moment of madness

A promise of passion
A trailer of sin
A smiling assassin
The demon within
Endorphins are raging
Resistance is thin

And you're blowing my mind
‘Cause I find that your theories of life
Are insane, feed my brain
I could listen all night
I can't leave till we kiss
It's a moment of madness

And I just wanna stare at your hair
And imagine you opening your door
In your drawer there's some leather in there
I refuse, you persist
It's a moment of madness

You know I'm not asking a lot,
Only your life,
I don't want to get what I want,
But I'm willing to try,
And I'm gonna ask you to stop,
But I'm full of lies

When you first got so mad lost your rag
Trying to save some trees
Angry cries, saw your thighs
And I fell to my knees
Oh my God what is this
It's a moment of madness

And I just wanna stare at your hair
And imagine you opening your door
In your drawer there's some leather in there
I refuse, you persist
It's a moment of madness

Red Balloons

I put my heart in a red balloon
But I let it go to soon
Let it go on the boulevard
Where wicked winds blow so hard

Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift
Into arms
Will they burst or drift
Into arms

I put my voice in a red balloon
For you it sang too many tunes
Haunted by those melodies
I let it go with the breeze

Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift
Into arms
Will they burst or drift
Into arms

I put my eyes in a red balloon
To watch you with the light of the moon,
But seeing you holding hands
With another girl and making plans
Well I just had to set you free
And finally see, that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift
Into arms,
Will they burst or drift
Into arms

Tiny Alien

Who are you my tiny alien
Why do you love to hide
Who are you my tiny alien
What can you see inside

I won't make a sound
I won't shoot you down
With my science, and reliance on everything I thought I knew

When you're not of this earth
You won't know what you're worth
You've just got to take the pressure together
Or you'll never survive in this world
Tiny alien

Who are you my tiny alien
What are you here to do
Who are you my tiny alien
How can I talk to you

What's my DNA
Can you make it change
So I can gain new insight and take flight
And never feel any pain

When you're not of this earth
You won't know what you're worth
You've just got to take the pressure together
Or you'll never survive in this world

Just how far can you fall
When you still feel so small
Will you love me through the sorrows tomorrows
Whatever the future will bring
Tiny alien

Who are you my tiny alien
We are just skin and bones
Who are you my tiny alien
Why are we so alone

When you're not of this earth
You won't know what you're worth
You've just got to take the pressure together
Or you'll never survive in this world

Just how far can you fall
When you still feel so small
Will you love me through the sorrows tomorrows
Whatever the future will bring
Tiny alien
Who are you my tiny alien
Who are you my tiny alien
Who are you my tiny alien
Who are you my tiny alien

No Fear Of Heights

I never walked near the edge
Used to fear falling
I never swam far from shore
Never tried the secret door

But when you give me love
When you give me love

I have no fear of heights,
No fear of the deep blue sea,
Although it could drown me,
I know it could drown me

I didn't wander in the woods
Used to fear the darkness
I didn't like getting deep
I was scared of what I couldn't keep

But when you give me love
When you give me love

I have no fear of heights,
No fear of the deep blue sea,
Although it could drown me,
I know it could drown me

No fear of the fall
No fear if it's with you that I fall
‘cause nothing could break us,
No nothing could break us, now

The One I Love Is Gone

I don't know I don't know
Where I'll go or what I'll do
It makes no difference what I do without you

Oh I love you my darling
But I'll have to let you leave
Goodbye it's the last you'll hear of me

Well I found the bluebird
High on a mountainside
And the little bird would sing its little song

So I'll sigh, I'll cry
I'll even wanna die
For the one I love is gone.

Well I found the bluebird
High on a mountainside
And the little bird would sing its little song

So I'll sigh, I'll cry
I'll even wanna die
For the one I love is gone.

I'll sigh, I'll cry
I'll even wanna die
For the one I love is gone

Plague Of Love

My father is a doctor
He never told me
About this problem
That I've got

I've never had it
It feels awful
It must be something that I caught

I can't breath, I can't eat
I hallucinate in my sleep
I get a fever whenever you're near
Oh God it's suddenly clear

Ooh struck down by the plague of love
Sweet poison running through my blood
And I can't bear not knowing if you even care

My mother is nurse
She can't help me
Though she spent her life
In the service of others

I told her ‘bout my pain
But she was busy
Downstairs serving dinner for my brother

Now I can't get out of bed
I've got this crazy notion in my head
I hear a ghost in my bedroom lurking
Is it me or is the medicine working

Ooh struck down by the plague of love
Sweet poison running through my blood
And I can't bear not knowing if you even care

Ooh struck down by the plague of love
Sweet poison running through my blood
And I can't bear not knowing if you even care.

Maybe nothing can save me
So come a little closer
I've got a secret just for you

Ooh struck down by the plague of love
Sweet poison running through my blood
And I can't bear not knowing if you even care

Ooh struck down by the plague of love
Struck down by the plague of love
Struck down by the plague of love

God On Drums, Devil On The Bass

Got God on the drums and the Devil on the bass
If you wanna dance you better find a space
Between the horns and the angel face
Is this the night you're gonna fall from grace
With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass
With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass

No one cares in this raging town,
They can build you up or drag you down
Nothing's wrong or right, black or white
They're all trying to start a fight between

God on the drums and the Devil on the bass
If you wanna dance you better find a space
Between the horns and the angel face
Is this the night you're gonna fall from grace
With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass
With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass

This constant beat that you cannot hear
‘Cause it hasn't changed for a thousand years
And you can hear this song my friend
But it never began and it will never end

With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass
If you wanna dance you better find a space
Between the horns and the angel face
Is this the night you're gonna fall from grace
With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass

Some people lie for a living
Some people stoop so low
Some make a thing of forgiving
Well they don't care ‘cause they don't know that

God's on the drums and the Devil's on the bass
If you wanna dance you better find a space
Between the horns and the angel face
Is this the night you're gonna fall from grace
With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass
With God on the drums and the Devil on the bass
And the Devil on the bass and the Devil on the bass

Twisted

Oh baby I'm twisted
Oh baby I'm twisted

I shouldn't keep dreaming of you
It's something I swore I wouldn't do
My friends say don't go there
It's a road to nowhere

But you got through
And I can't undo
This thing I feel for you

Ooh I'm twisted, just twisted
Entranced by the dance that you do
I'm twisted, so twisted
I wanna twist and turn with you

Oh baby I'm twisted
Oh baby I'm twisted

Out on the street, I meet you again
This beast inside is counting to ten
We're all alone
We're near my home

And we go in
Like a mortal sin
Don't wanna live if I can't touch your skin

Ooh I'm twisted, just twisted
Entranced by the dance that you do
I'm twisted, so twisted
I wanna twist and turn with you
I'm twisted, just twisted
I wanna twist the night away with you

Oh baby I'm twisted
Oh baby I'm twisted
Oh baby I'm twisted
Oh baby I'm twisted

Like the roots of a tree
(Oh baby I'm twisted)
You got into me
(Oh baby I'm twisted)

Like the roots of a tree
(Oh baby I'm twisted)
You got into me
(Oh baby I'm twisted)
Baby I'm twisted
(Oh baby I'm twisted)
Baby I'm twisted
(Oh baby I'm twisted)

The House

Who is in that house
I opened the door to see
Who is up the stairs
I'm walking up foolishly

And at the end of the hall was a door
And I got pulled in by a sound
But I wish I'd never found

In the privacy of your own room
Where flowers in the wallpaper bloom
Where I just don't understand
In the privacy of your room
Look away now, look away now
At the moon

Is somebody watching me
You really shouldn't see
Why did you climb that last stair
You found me unaware

What I'm doing now it's my own
And I don't want it to be known
And it has to just remain

In the privacy of my own room
Where flowers in the wallpaper bloom
Where you just don't understand
In the privacy of my room
Look away now, look away now
At the moon

Puzzle me now with mystery clothes
These apples I love, these apples I loath
And always forgive the future to come
For stealing the light from the sun

 

Secret Symphony

Gold In Them Hills

( Ron Sexsmith )

I know it doesn't seem that way
But maybe it's the perfect day
Even though the bills are piling
And maybe Lady Luck ain't smiling
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
But if we'd only open our eyes
We'd see the blessings in disguise
That all the rain clouds are fountains
Though our troubles seem like mountains

There's gold in them hills
There's gold in them hills
So don't lose heart
Give the day a chance to start

Every now and then life says
Where do you think you're going so fast
We're apt to think it's cruel, but sometimes
It's a case of cruel to be kind

And if we'd get up off our knees
Why then we'd see the forest for the trees
And we'd see the new sun rising
Over the hills on the horizon

There's gold in them hills
There's gold in them hills
So don't lose faith
Give the world a chance to say

A word or two, my friend
There's no telling how the day might end
We'll never know until we see that

There's gold in them hills
There's gold in them hills
So don't lose heart
Give the day a chance to start

There's gold in them hills
There's gold in them hills

Better Than A Dream

( The Dreamstone )

I used to dream myself to somewhere else each night
I dreamed in colour
'Cause I lived in black and white
Until I chanced upon this road that led to you
I couldn't see
How anything could be
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Better than a dream
Stranger than my wild imagination
If this is a real sensation
It's better than a dream

Higher than the moon
Hazy like a beautiful illusion
Crazy and in confusion
And better than a dream

I used to wish I was beyond some distant door
I knew there must be more to life
And now I'm sure
No dreams of pirate caves
Or indian braves, or magic carpets could
Ever be this good

Better than a dream
Stranger than my wild imagination
If this is a real sensation
It's better than a dream

Higher than the moon
Hazy like a beautiful illusion
Crazy and in confusion
And better than a dream
Better than a dream

The Bit That I Don't Get

The bit that I don't get
It's how it changed so fast
How it changed from we will always be together
To it will never last

The writing on the wall
I hadn't seen it yet
When you told me you were tired of it all
That's the bit that I don't get

So call me a fool
I do
But no longer the fool beside you
And I'm learning from the pain
Won't be doing that again

The bit that I don't get
It's how it changed so fast
How it changed from we will always be together
To it will never last
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
The writing on the wall
I hadn't seen it yet
When you told me you were tired of it all
That's the bit that I don't get!

People break up everyday
But I never thought
I would wake up to hear you say
Forever now means never

The bit that I don't get
It's how it changed so fast
How it changed from we will always be together
To it will never last

The writing on the wall
I hadn't seen it yet
When you told me you were tired of it all
That's the bit that I don't get

Moonshine

( Fran Healy )

Well my eyes are closed but my heart's on fire
Because the clock is approaching the midnight hour
I leave my window open, all the lights are out
And from the darkest night comes the lightest shout

Moonshine, moonshine moon
The cow jumped over the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine moon
I'll love you tonight under the moonshine moon

As we walk through the streets there's no-one nowhere
And our nightgown's trailing and our feet are bare
I don't know where we're going and I don't care
Just as long as you're here and the moon's up there
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Moonshine, moonshine moon
The cow jumped over the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine moon
I'll love you tonight under the moonshine moon

Now all the little boys and girls around the town
Dreaming through the darkness till the moon goes down
But me and my baby gonna be up all night
Dancing under the moonlight

Moonshine, moonshine moon
I'll love you tonight under the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine moon
The cow jumped over the moonshine moon
Moonshine, moonshine
Moonshine, moonshine moon

Forgetting All My Troubles

There's a secret, the golden flower knows
When you're falling in love
There's a silence, the ending darkness feels
When you're singing with love

Remembering life, a good blessed life
I'm forgetting all my troubles
I'm forgetting all my troubles
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
There's a summer, the frozen heart recalls
When you're breathing with love
There's a pathway, the silver candle shines
When you're seeing with love

Remembering life, a good blessed life
I'm forgetting all my troubles
I'm forgetting all my troubles

There's a quivering, the waking forest gives
When you're dancing with love
There's a humming, the diamond raindrops hum
When you're crazy with love

Remembering life, a good blessed life
I'm forgetting all my troubles
I'm forgetting all my troubles

All Over The World

( Francoise Hardy )

All over the world
People must meet and part
There's someone like me
Feeling the pain in their heart

Some may meet again
Under that same white star
If maybe some night
You come back from afar
Who cares if tonight
I don't know where you are

Are you thinking of me now
Missing having me around
If you have forgotten me
My world will come tumbling down
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
All over the world
Others are sad tonight
There's someone like me
Watching the sun's fading light

All over the sky
There is the same warm glow
Here under that star
I'm wanting you to know
Wherever you are
That I still love you so
Wherever you are
That I still love you so

Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out

( Jimmie Cox )

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, I didn't care
Taking my friends out for a mighty good time
Bootleg, whisky, champagne and wine

Then I began to fall so low
Lost all my good friends and no way to go
If I get my hand on a dollar again
Gonna hold on to it till the eagle grins
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
'Cause nobody knows you
When you're down and out
In my pocket not one penny
And my friends I haven't any

But if I get myself back on my feet again
Everybody wanna be my long-lost friend
It's mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out
I mean when you're down and out

'Cause nobody knows you
When you're down and out
In my pocket not one penny
And my friends I haven't any

But when I get myself back on my feet again
Everyone wanna be my long-lost friend
It's mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out
I mean when you're down and out
When you're down and out
When you're down and
When you're down and out

The Cry Of The Lone Wolf

Everybody told me to walk away
Though you made me feel good
I was just a fool, didn't hear them say
Love is like a wild wood

Something in the way I was lost and found
Something made it feel right
Spirited away by a haunting sound
Calling in the deep night
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
They told me not to listen
To the cry of the lone wolf
Next time I won't listen
To the cry of the lone wolf

Following the smoke of your glowing fire
Shining through the twilight
Then you slipped away as the flames grew higher
Back into the deep night

They told me not to listen
To the cry of the lone wolf
Next time I won't listen
To the cry of the lone wolf

Next time I won't listen
To the cry of the lone wolf

Heartstrings

Is it a game, or is it a sham
We don't really care, we don't really give a damn.
You're like an angel playing with my heartstrings

For life or a day, for real or pretend
If I had my way, this feeling would never end
You're like an angel playing with my heartstrings

You're asking me not to leave you
And baby that makes me smile
Let's get our house with a sea-view
Forever or just for a little while

We'll drink some champagne or look at the stars
And do it again 'cause baby the world is ours
You're like an angel playing with my heartstrings
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Sometimes I think we're only
On a daytrip to Disneyland
But remember that night you got lonely
And asked my daddy for my hand

Having a bite, having a ball
Talking all night and dancing until we fall
You're like an angel playing with my heartstrings

You don't call me for days, heaven forbid
The next thing you say you want me to have your kids
You're like an angel playing with my heartstrings
You're like an angel playing with my heartstrings

The Walls Of The World

( Mike Batt )

The sun is only shining like it always does
But I never noticed it in the sky before
And you don't need to worry
'Cause I need your love, my friend

There's a strong kind of feeling when I know you're near
Nobody alive can take it away from me;
And I feel like I've known you for a thousand years
Bring it out into the light
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
'Cause I think I'm gonna write it on the walls of the world
So everyone will know today the love I hold for you
I will write it on the walls of the world
So that the sun won't fade away the words I say to you
I love you

And I know I'm not a loser when I'm on my own
I could be miles away in another land
And it keeps me together when I'm far from home
I won't keep it out of sight

And I think I'm gonna write it on the walls of the world
So everyone will know today the love I hold for you
I will write it on the walls of the world
So that the sun won't fade away the words I say to you
I love you

Secret Symphony

You're like a secret symphony
That was created just for me
Some knowing mind, some guiding hand
Must have designed, must have planned it

You're like a garden in a land
Of barren rock and lonely sand
Where rain can fall, where grass can grow
And through it all, I can love you so

Isn't it strange, but it's only a feeling
Isn't it weird, it feels like I'm stealing your soul
Isn't it wild, this world that we know now
It's gonna be fine wherever we go now
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You're like a prayer I was scared to say
The one who might have got away
Somebody worth all I've had to face
No one on Earth could replace you

You're like a secret symphony
That was created just for me
Some knowing mind, some guiding hand
Must have designed, must have planned it

B-Sides: The Tracks That Got Away

Downstairs To The Sun

( The closest thing to crazy EP )

Can't say what came over me
I wasn't what i used to be
Hadn't seen how i lost control
And i always thought that i was strong

But one night, one situation,
One sign, one devastation

I could have said no to the walk
Listened instead of just talked
And i dreamed that i had screamed
I could have run, down the stairs to the sun

It's not what you did to me,
It's the fact that i didn't fight you back
And it seems i had lost my voice
The one that always made the right choice

'Cause two nights, two situations,
Two signs, two devastations

I could have said no to the walk
Listened instead of just talked
And i dreamed that i had screamed
I could have run, down the stairs to the sun

But now the cup is no longer cold
As the rain trickles down i feel a bold
And time is calling me to set myself free
Concession is the key and knowing what you don't see

I could have said no to the walk
Listened instead of just talked
And i dreamed that i had screamed
I could have run, down the stairs to the sun...

Turn To Tell

( Justin Sandercoe Cover / Call off the search EP )

I turn to tell him things
I still make tea for two
I keep the kitchen clean
The way he'd want me to
Start again, but I'm not ready to move on
‘Cos I still turn to tell him, I love him
But he's gone

I miss the mess he made
Of my head when we fought
Over such silly things
I wish we could have talked
A little more, spoke instead of screamed
‘Cos when I turn to tell him, I love him
He's just a dream

I lost the second chance
When fate led time away
I keep his picture close
So his memory won't fade
Alive in me, forever with my soul
So when I turn to tell him, I love him
I think he knows

Shirt Of A Ghost

( Call off the search EP )

Mary at home, as always, was ironing a pale shirt of a ghost
Trying to straighten out every crease of his being and the emptiness where she was lost
Ten minutes before she had her man drying in the summer's breeze
Their love had been helped by a little red peg but it was just a moment seized

'Cause he flew away
On a memory where most
People fade away
But now she's left with the shirt of a ghost
Yeah she's left with the shirt of a ghost

Ten minutes before he ran away to a stranger's hands and feet
And as it turned she saw them play among the soap, water and heat.

'Cause he flew away
On a memory where most
Lovers just fade away
And she's left with the shirt of a ghost
Yeah she's left with the shirt of a ghost

Ten minutes before the shirt was stained in anger and greed
And it smelled of revenge from a broken heart and the shirt his body no longer did need

'Cause he flew away
On a memory where most
Bodies just fade away
But she's left with the shirt of a ghost
Yeah she's left with the shirt of a ghost

'Cause he flew away
On a memory where most
Lovers just fade away
But she's left with the shirt of a ghost
Yeah she's left with the shirt of a ghost
She's left with the shirt of a ghost

Deep Purple

( Mitchell Parish / Peter de Rose / Call off the search EP )

When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls

And the stars begin to flicker in the sky
Through the mist of a memory

You wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh
In the still of the night

Once again i hold you tight
Though you're gone, your love lives on

When moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat
Lover, we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams

Jack's Room

( Crawling up a hill EP )

Sunday, and mum was cleaning up jack's room
I could call it, the beginning of this household's doom
After knowing her son for 18 years, she did not expect to find these items here.
In jack's room, behind the cupboard, she finds pretty stockings & dresses & heels.
In jack's room, behind the cupboard she finds pretty dresses & heels.

Down the stairs in a confused state of mind.
Mother tells dad, our son has something to hide
As he follows her back up to jack's room
Really not knowing what to presume.
In jack's room behind the cupboard
They find pretty stockings & dresses & heels
In jack's room behind the cupboard, they find pretty dresses & heels.

And now jack is walking home
Thinks there is nothing wrong
He even stops to buy some flowers
For his dearest folks, cause they're such a joke
They want to clean his room for hours

And now jack's in a confused state of mind
Mother asks him, he doesn't know how to reply
Then dad suddenly, goes bright red
And says, ive got something to confess
In jack's room behind the cupboard
They're my pretty stockings & dresses & heels
In jack's room, behind the cupboard
They're my pretty dresses & heels.

In jack's room, behind the cupboard
They're my pretty stockings & dresses & heels
In jack's room, behind the cupboard
They're my pretty dresses & heels

Anniversary Song

( Eva cassidy Cover / Live )

Today has been a special day
An anniversary, a request
That you play your piano
As the evening sun slowly sets

I never knew i'd get this old dear
Never had a reason to live so long
And the lord's been like my shadow
Ever since i was wrong
No i never knew it would turn out this way

A birthday with apologies
For all the tears and the rest
And i've always saved your poetry
For those years when you forget

I never knew i'd get this old dear
Never had a reason to live so long
And the lord's been like my shadow
Ever since i was wrong
No i never knew it would turn out this way

So sing to me softly
As the day turns to night
And as i wander in paradise with you
I love you and good night

Stardust

( Nine Million Bicycles EP / Hoagy Carmichael & Mitchell Parish, 1927)

And now the purple dust of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
Now the little stars, the little stars pine
Always reminding me that we're apart
You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a love that cannot die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by.

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely nights
Dreaming of a song
That melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
Ah, but that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
Where stars are bright
You are in my arms
That nightingale tells its fairy tale
of paradise where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
my stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

Ah, but that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
Where stars are bright
You are in my arms
That nightingale tells its fairy tale
Of paradise where roses grew
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain.

Market Day In Guernica

( Nine Million Bicycles EP )

My children played a skipping game
On market day in Guernica
On market day before they came
Before they came to Guernica.

I search my soul but cannot start
to find forgiveness in my heart.
My little ones no longer play
In Guernica on market day.

My father wore his linen suit
On market day in Guernica
He always sold the finest fruit
Before they came to Guernica

Now there's no way to let him know
How much I loved and miss him so
I watched as he was blown away
In Guernica on market day.

Away
Away
All blown away

My children played a skipping game
On market day in Guernica
On market day before they came
Before they came to Guernica.

I search my soul but cannot start
To find forgiveness in my heart.
My little ones no longer play in Guernica
On market day

Pictures On A Video Screen

( I Cried For You EP )

I open up one eye and I can see
A million T.V. screens from wall to wall
And as I look again it seems to me
My picture is projected on them all.

From far away I see my body now
I can follow every movement that I make
But I can't remember where I am or how,
Or wether I am dreaming or awake.

Sooner or later, I'll believe the world's not round,
I'll turn up the vision, turn up the sound.
For I have discovered that I'm not what I seem,
I'm only a picture on a video screen.
And sooner or later, when the night comes rolling down,
Fear and confusion are all around;
I know that the problems
And the nightmares that I dream
Are only pictures on a video screen.

And as I rise to get myself another drink,
It seems like I'm some distance from my brain.
I'm looking down and I begin to think
This must be what it's like to go insane.

Sooner or later, I'll believe the world's not round,
I'll turn up the vision, turn up the sound.
For I have discovered that I'm not what I seem,
I'm only a picture on a video screen.
And sooner or later, when the night comes rolling down,
Fear and confusion are all around;
I know that the problems
And the nightmares that I dream
Are only pictures on a video screen.

Sooner or later, I'll believe the world's not round,
I'll turn up the vision, turn up the sound.
For I have discovered that I'm not what I seem,
I'm only a picture on a video screen.

Cry baby cry

( Spider's web EP )

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better

The king of Marigold was in the kitchen
Cooking breakfast for the queen
The queen was in the parlour
Playing piano for the children of the king

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

The king was in the garden
Picking flowers for a friend who came to play
The queen was in the playroom
Painting pictures for the childrens holiday

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

The duchess of Kircaldy always smiling
And arriving late for tea
The duke was having problems
With a message at the local bird and bee

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

At twelve o'clock a meeting round the table
For a seance in the dark
With voices out of nowhere
Put on specially by the children for a lark

Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry cry cry cry baby
Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better
Cry baby cry
cry cry cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry

Can you take me back where I came from
Can you take me back
Can you take me back where I came from
Brother can you take me back
Can you take me back
Oooh, can you take me where I came from
Can you take me back

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

( Lennon/McCartney / It's only pain EP )

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.

Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Lucy in the sky with diamonds
Ah... Ah...

Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies,
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.
Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Sometimes When I'm Dreaming

( Piece By Piece - Special Bonus Edition' )

All the friends I believed in
I believed in for a while
They had their flair
They had their style
But nobody quite got it right
Nobody knew just how it feels to be me

But sometimes when I'm dreaming
And I dream a lot these days
I meet someone who understands
who leads me through the haze
It's only when I'm dreaming
that I fall in love for real
But I wake up screaming
Sometimes when I'm dreaming

And it's now
that I need a friend
I reach out for the phone
Nobody's there Nobody's home
Though it may not be right to give up the fight
I'm sailing away
now I'm on my own
Alone

But sometimes when I'm dreaming
And I dream a lot these days
I meet someone who understands
who leads me through the haze
It's only when I'm dreaming that I fall in love for real
But I wake up screaming
Sometimes when I'm dreaming
But I wake up screaming
Sometimes when I'm dreaming

Fancy

( Shy boy EP )

I remember it all very well lookin' back
It was the summer that I turned eighteen.
We lived in a one-room, run down shack
On the outskirts of New Orleans.

We didn't have money for food or rent
To say the least we were hard-pressed
When Momma spent every last penny we had
To buy me a dancin' dress.

Momma washed and combed and curled my hair,
Then she painted my eyes and lips.
And I stepped into the satin dancin' dress.
It had a split in the side clean up to my hips.

It was red, velvet-trimmed, to fit me good
And standin' back from the lookin' glass
Was a woman
Where a half grown kid had stood.

"Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down!
Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down.
Lord forgive me for what I do,
But if you want out then it's up to you
Don't let me down your momma's gonna help you move uptown."

Momma dabbed a bit of perfume
On my neck and she kissed my cheek
And I saw the tears well up
In her troubled eyes when she started to speak

She looked at our pitiful shack and then
She looked at me and took a ragged breath
Your Pa's run off, and I'm real sick
And the baby's gonna starve to death.

She handed me a heart-shaped locket that said
"To thine own self be true"
And I shivered as I watched a roach crawl across
The toe of my high-heal shoe

It sounded like somebody else who was talkin'
Askin', "Momma what do I do?"
Just be nice to the gentlemen, Fancy.
And they'll be nice to you."

"Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down!
Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down.
Lord forgive me for what I do,
But if you want out then it's up to you
Don't let me down,
Your momma's gonna help you move uptown."

Well that was the last time I saw my momma
The night I left that rickety shack
Cos welfare people came and took the baby.
Momma died and I ain't been back.

But the wheels of fate had started to turn
And for me there was no other way out.
And it wasn't very long till I knew exactly
What my ma had been talkin' 'bout.

I did what I had to do.
But I made myself a solemn vow:
That I was gonna to be a lady someday
Though I don't know when or how.

I couldn't see spendin' the rest of my life
With my head hung down in shame.
I might have been born just plain white trash.
But Fancy was my name.

"Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down!
Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down.

It wasn't very long a benevolent man
took me in off the street
And one week later I was pourin' his tea
In a five roomed hotel suite.

Well I've charmed a king, a congressman
And an occasional aristocrat
And I've got me a Georgia mansion
And an elegant New York townhouse flat.

Now I ain't done bad

Now in this world there's a lot of self-righteous
Hypocrites who call me bad.
And criticize Momma for turning me out
No matter how little we had.

And though I hadn't had to worry about nothin'
For nigh on fifteen years
I can still hear the desperation
In my poor mommas voice ringin' in my ears.

"Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down!
Here's your one chance, Fancy, don't let me down.
Lord forgive me for what I do,
But if you want out then it's up to you
Don't let me down,
Your momma's gonna help you move uptown."

Junk Mail

( If you were a sailboat EP )

Then you left, didn't even leave a note
Saved yourself, didn't spare my pain,
Now I know how it feels to hit the wall,
I'll never fall again;

And the junk mail still comes for you,
And reminds me of a life I need to forget.
The junk mail still comes for you,
And reminds me of a life I need to forget.

Gazing down on the busy street below,
From my room where the walls are grey;
Don't know how I will ever get myself
Through another day.

And the junk mail still comes for you,
And reminds me of a life I need to forget.
And the junk mail still comes for you,
And reminds me of a life I need to forget.

I poured some wine,
And I poured a glass for you,
I should know that I just need one.
And last night I lit two cigarettes,
Forgetting that you'd gone.

And the junk mail still comes for you,
And reminds me of a life I need to forget.
And the junk mail still comes for you,
And reminds me of a life I need to forget.

Straight To DVD

( If you were a sailboat EP )

If they made a movie bout you and me
It would go straight to DVD
Though the music's good, but the acting's not
There ain't no dialogue and there ain't no plot

If they made a film about me and you
It would never get a good review
You act so smooth in the steamy scenes
But there ain't no fire you don't know what it means

The movie of you and me would go straight to DVD
The story of you and me would go straight to DVD

Would it be a movie bout love or war
We don't even know what we're fighting for
It was sometimes good and sometimes great
But mostly now it's like a boring date

The movie of you and me would go straight to DVD
The story of you and me would go straight to DVD

Now there are no surprises the temperature rarely rises
Maybe we're just pretending there'll be a happy ending

If they made a movie bout you and me
It would go straight to DVD
Though the music's good but the acting's not
There ain't no dialogue and there ain't no plot

The movie of you and me would go straight to DVD
The story of you and me would go straight to DVD

This Year's Love

( If you were a sailboat EP )

This years love had better last
Heaven knows it's high time
And I've been waiting on my own too long
But when you hold me like you do
It feels so right
I start to forget
How my heart gets torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Feeling like you can't go on

Turning circles when time again
It cuts like a knife oh yeah
If you love me got to know for sure
Cos it takes something more this time
Than sweet sweet lies
Before I open up my arms and fall
Losing all control
Every dream inside my soul
And when you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain't this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last

So whose to worry
If our hearts get torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Don't you know this life goes on
And won't you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain't this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last

Looking For Clues

( Robert Palmer / 'Nancy Drew' OST )

It's crazy but I'm frightened by the sound of the telephone, oh yeah
I'm worried that the caller might have awful news, oh my
Who knows these days where on earth the money goes, oh yeah
No doubt we could put it to a better use, oh my

You keep insisting that nobody showed you how to keep relationships, oh yeah

Nobody's gonna give you the benefit of the doubt, oh my
Everytime I pick a paper up its harder to believe the news, oh yeah
I'm gonna have to shake it up and twist and shout, oh my

You can't do nothing that you don't put your mind to, oh yeah
I suspected all along you were a dream come true, oh my
I'm never in the dark 'cause my heart keeps me well informed, oh yeah
I'm convinced that there's a way of getting through to you
Ooh I'm looking for clues

It's crazy but I'm frightened by the sound of relationships, oh yeah
I swear we could put it to a better use, oh my
Do hurry baby you've forgotten how to catch a night groove, oh yeah
You told all the callers you were not amused oh I'm looking for clues

You keep insisting that nobody showed you how to use a telephone, oh yeah
Nobody's gonna give you a second chance, oh my
I don't have to make an effort now to find out where the money goes, oh yeah
Do you have to make a fuss everytime we dance
Ooh I'm looking for clues

Do ya do ya do ya do ya
Ooh I'm looking for clues
Ooh I'm looking for clues
Ooh I'm looking for clues

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

( Shy boy EP )

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yule-tide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now

 

Ketevan

Never Felt Less Like Dancing

Never felt less like dancing
Never felt more like hiding myself away
Never felt so great

Never felt more weeping
Never felt more like sneaking away
Creeping away to crawl

I have to confess
I never felt less like dancing

Oh I know we should come to expect
Everything could be read
And you have to protect yourself

So how come I wasn't ready to see
When so obviously
You were falling for somebody else
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I never felt less like dancing
Never felt more like hiding myself away
Never felt so great

I never felt more weeping
Never felt more like sneaking away
Creeping away to crawl

I have to confess
I never felt less like dancing

How come I wasn't ready to see
When so obviously
You were falling for somebody else

I never felt less like dancing
Never felt more like hiding myself away
Never felt so great

I never felt more weeping
Never felt more like sneaking away
Creeping away to crawl

I have to confess
I never felt less like dancing...

Sailing Ships From Heaven

And she played the harmonium down by the sea
Singing “God save the USA”
“And God save me”

And though God never had
She believed Him to be
On his way

She had lived out in Paris before Paris fell
Singing “when will I hear again from Jean Michel?”

And she prayed for his soul
And she hoped he was well
Anyway

Hold on
For the sailing ships from heaven won't be long
Please do
Til the sailing ships from heaven come along

And she laughed
Don't be sad like the boys in the trees
They will be waiting for the world to face
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
She said when they were young they went down on their knees
For my love

Hold on
For the sailing ships from heaven won't be long
Please do
Til the sailing ships from heaven come along

And she walked on the beach in the wind and the rain
Singing “why don't you ask me why I feel no pain?”

And the reason that keeps me from going insane
That's my love

Hold on
For the sailing ships from heaven won't be long
Please do
Til the sailing ships from heaven come along...

Love Is A Silent Thief

Love is a deep wound
Love is a sharp knife
Love is a stranger
And love is a black light

Love makes you weary
Lovely to last right
Love should be locked up
Love is a parasite

I don't wanna try and work it out
‘Cause it causes too much grief
It's gonna tear you up and spit you out
Love is a silent thief

Love is a banquet
Of which we all feared
Hungry for me
There's never enough to eat
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Love causes blindness
Gives you a cold sweat
Love is a language
Without an alphabet

All I know is we can't live without it
Falling over our feet
Slipping through our fingers as we try to catch
Love is a silent thief

Love is a dry mouth
Begging for water
But there's only oil
It's getting harder and harder

Love is a stopwatch
Broken and twisted
When it takes hold
It's like you never existed

Here I go again for it, for it
That is my belief
My heart is open and I can't defend it
Love is a silent thief

Shiver And Shake

This party's done, everybody's going home
Just you and I standing here all alone
The city is tired but we're awake
Now I wanna make you shiver and shake

Moving's easy so pick a song
Just make sure that record's long
Hey now baby, I'm a rattle snake
Watch me do the shiver and shake

Swing that head round and around
Throw your worries to the ground
Now there's no way he could make a mistake
When we're up all night and we shiver and shake

On the roofs of abandoned cause
Whips and Cola and old cigars
Those Bollywood songs
Yea yea, not so good songs
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The bands were French, American
They showed us how to treat a girl
We kissed until our lips were numb

This party's done, everybody's going home
Just you and I standing here all alone
The city is tired but we're awake
Now I wanna make you shiver and shake

The Love I'm Frightened Of

If I wait
Don't move a muscle
Maybe somehow we'll sparkle strong
It's been a long night

So sincere
But the message is still a struggle
Knives with which we juggle
While we jump through fire

So maybe I'll move on or make a mistake
And see if my earth-quakes

This is the love I'm frightened of
Doesn't come with a leaflet that says how to keep it
This is the love that can't be seen
No detailed instructions or Japanese symbols like you find on the washing machine
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Slow me down
Apply some gentile pressure
And maybe somehow we'll sparkle strong
I hope they might

One is best
But like any conversation
Safe but no relation
To the all you give

So maybe I'll move on or make a mistake
And see if my earth-quakes

This is the love I'm frightened of
Doesn't come with a leaflet that says how to keep it
This is the love that can't be seen
No detailed instructions or Japanese symbols like you find on the washing machine

This is the love I'm frightened of
Doesn't come with a leaflet that says how to keep it
This is the love that can't be seen
No detailed instructions…

This is the love I'm frightened of
This is the love I'm frightened of

Where Does The Ocean Go

Through a cloudy haze on the sun lit sea
We waved them away from the southern key
17 hands but the one in charge
Was one fine man from the bio sauvage

Mon cher, senior keep c'est Caesar
I try not to show him the tear in my eye
I send my love I'll wait for you
Farewell sweet boy from the one by you

Where does the ocean go
Should I let it take me
Any second they may wake me
Does anybody know
Where does the ocean go
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I knew back then as I always known
That say this pray is traitor's law
But the ship went down off the coast of Spain
I read the letter, felt his pain

Where does the ocean go
Should I let it take me
Any second they may wake me
Does anybody know
Where does the ocean go

Some days I walk on the harbor side
And I watch the sea and the rising tide
And I see him there like a sand mirage
My last man in the moon du sauvage

Where does the ocean go
Should I let it take me
Any second they may wake me
Does anybody know
Where does the ocean go

Does anybody know
Where does the ocean go

Ask me why I left you high and dry
Only to wind up lonely
How could I be so cruel
I must've been to idiot school

If there was a stupid degree

Not so long ago you loved me so
And I was your one and only
I threw away a jewel
I must've been to idiot school
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We knew when I went away
That one day you'd forget me
I'd come running back today
But you won't let me

Mad, Mad Men

Mad, mad men
Wild, wild women
And crazy girls

It's always the mad, mad men
The wild, wild women
Who change the world

Oscar, he was a wayward child
No one could foresee him fail
With his pen he went a little while
And ended up in wedding jail

Looking at the world through cold steel bars
Lying in a gutter but looking at the stars
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Mad, mad men
And wild, wild women
And crazy girls

It's always the mad, mad men
The wild, wild women
Who change the world

Joan of Arc seemed like a ditsy then
Claiming she was from the lord
But she won her battle and she made her name
She must've had a magic soul

Then somebody shouted heresy
She went up in flames and down in history

Mad, mad men
And wild, wild women
And crazy girls

It's always the mad, mad men
The wild, wild women
Who change the world

Ooh you know it don't even matter
You can be as mad as a hatter too
And you can climb that ladder
To the top!

Mad, mad men
And wild, wild women
And crazy girls

It's always the mad, mad men
The wild, wild women
Who change the world

Who change the world

Chase Me

If you chase me
I'll be a firefly
In the midnight sky
I'll intoxicate you

Chase me
I'll be yours forever for a day
Chase me or I'll fly away

If I'm hiding out of sight
Try harder and get me alone tonight
‘Cause I'd rather be tangled up with you

The hunter always lose a few
More hungry for it than a kill
So thrill me darling with those baby blues

If you chase me
I never stopped reaching out
Just seek me out beyond the moonbeams
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Chase me
I'll be yours forever for a day
Chase me or I'll slip away

The best of things would disappear
Though the feeling lost as souvenirs
But a scent of memory treats you like a fool

Heaven's waiting on your lips
I'll dissolve beneath your fingertips
And you'll believe I'm too good to be true

Chase me
I'll be your everything
A ride of strew
A shine like teardrops

Chase me
I'll be yours forever for a day
Chase me or I'll fly away

I Never Fall

When you fall in love too careless and too fast
It may never last, it's a freighting view
You'll fall down with a bump

I never fall
I always jump

There's a certain risk
What can your heart stand
Some things can be planned
But if you get to fly
Landing's worth a thought
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I never fall
I always jump

One step at a time
The edge is getting nearer
Now that we've met
The world seems clearer

Before we know it's now or never
So let's jump together

If he takes your heart
Takes you out to hide
And you don't question that

But if he lies to you
You'll crush down with a thump

I never fall
I always jump...

I Will Be There

She is like the lady down the road
Or just the woman up the street
Like any mother you may know

To me, she is the one who had it planned
To lead us all to Wonderland
She always wanted us to go

And she said
Don't ever be lonely
Remember, I'll always care

Wherever you may be
Remember I will be there

And like another lady that we know
She has a smile so bright and sweet
And hair as white as driven snow
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Though life is never easy day to day
She has a very special way
To make us smile when we are low

And she says
Don't ever be lonely
Remember, I'll always care

Wherever you may be
Remember I will be there

Don't ever be lonely
Remember, I will be there

I will be there
I will be there

In Winter

the Little Swallow

(Ukranian Bell Carol)

Shchedryk shchedryk, shchedrivochka
Pryletila lastivochka
Stala sobi shchebetaty
Hospodarya vyklykaty
"Vyydy, vyydy, hospodaryu
Podyvysya na kosharu

A yahnychky narodylys'
V tebe tovar ves' khoroshyy

Shchedryk shchedryk, shchedrivochka

Shchedryk, shchedryk, a shchedrivka (New Year's carol)
A little swallow flew (into the household)
And started to twitter
To summon the master
"Come out, come out, O master (of the household)
Look at the sheep pen
There the ewes are nestling
And the lambkin have been born
Your goods (livestock) are great
You will have a lot of money, (by selling them)
Your goods (livestock) are great
You will have a lot of money, (by selling them)
If not money, then chaff: (from all the grain you will harvest)
You have a dark-eyebrowed (beautiful) wife"
Shchedryk, shchedryk, a shchedrivka
A little swallow flew

River

(Joni Mitchell)

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
Help and participate instead of copy and paste
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

Oh, I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye
I made my baby say goodbye
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace

Perfect World

You're precious
I can't stand seeing you cry
It hurts watching you get what you don't deserve
I tell myself you don't belong in this rough life

You should have a perfect world
You should have a perfect world
Help and participate instead of copy and paste
You're too gentle
And much too quick to forgive
Every slight and blow you've ever been dealt
Well who knows if the world will ever deserve you

You should have a perfect world
You should have a perfect world

Who knows if the world will ever deserve you

You should have a perfect world
You should have a perfect world

Cradle Song

(Leganelul Lui Lisus/Romanian Bell Carol)

Colo-n sus pe-un deal frumos
Unde-i cerul luminos
Intr-un leagan sta culcat
Fiul Maicii infasat

Leagan verde, leganel
Tot din lemn de paltinel
Leagan verde, leganel
Tot din lemn de paltinel
Help and participate instead of copy and paste
Raza blanda a soarelui
Scalda fata Domnului
Vantul dulce il tragana
Pruncul de ni-l leagana

Leagan verde, leganel
Tot din lemn de paltinel
Leagan verde, leganel
Tot din lemn de paltinel

Canta ingerii in cor
Sa vesteasca tuturor
Astazi cerul s-a deschis
Pe Hristos ni l-a trimis

Leagan verde, leganel
Tot din lemn de paltinel
Leagan verde, leganel
Tot din lemn de paltinel

A Time To Buy

It's a time to buy
A time for shopping
Go into the store and make a choice
But everything she sees it's like they're talking
Talking at her with a diffeent voice

Laura's head is buzzing
Can't remember what she came here for
Couldn't keep her promise
Not to gaze at things she can't afford
'Cause there's shoes, bags, silk scarfs and dreams of summer days
And now she's wording a letter to her bosses for a raise
Help and participate instead of copy and paste
But then she passes the baby section
With the tiniest shoes on shiny trays

It's a time to buy, a time for shopping
Go into the store and make a choice
But everything she sees it's like they're talking
Talking at her with a different voice
There's the singer's voice and her mother's pleas
And the voice of countless charities
But the one she hears with certainty says
Have it all, have it all, have it all

Margaret's by the mannequins
Gazing at their suits and shoulders
Still no man and it's another year of winter holidays
But soon she'll have him and buy him a suit like this
And they'll go skiing every year
He's around the corner, the man who'll love her
And understand her and her career

It's a time to buy, a time for shopping
Go into the store and make a choice
But everything she sees it's like they're talking
Talking at her with a different voice
There's the singer's voice and her mother's pleas
And the voice of countless charities
But the one she hears with certainty says
Have it all, have it all, have it all

It's a time to buy, a time for shopping
Go into the store and make a choice
But everything she sees it's like they're talking
Talking at her with a different voice
There's the singer's voice and her mother's pleas
And the voice of countless charities
But the one she hears with certainty says
Have it all, have it all, have it all

Plane Song

The seats were all dusty
The side doors were open
Those airplanes were left there years ago

Granddad had spoken of forests in Russia
I pictured him walking in ten inches of snow

We liked pretending those planes could fly
That nothing was out of reach in the whole of the sky
It was just pretending, simple to do
We'd make some plans and travel someplace new

Paris and London, those cities in movies
Perfect lives were lived if they could be believed
Back in the real world they seemed so distant
But none of it mattered in the airplane field
Help and participate instead of copy and paste
We liked pretending those planes could fly
That rusty old wings knew the entire sky
It was just pretending there was nothing more
Hey, why the sad face, can't you feel this cabin soar

It was great pretending those planes could fly
That nothing was out of reach in the whole of the sky
Come on hurry we'll soon be gone
It's time for us to put our seat belts on

If You Are So Beautiful

Tu Ase Turpa Ikavi

Dreams On Fire

Busy man where am I on your list
You're so full of big ideas
Do you think that we can co-exist
Will we be a pair in twenty years

If all your dreams were on fire
Which one would you save
When it comes down to the wire
Should I be afraid, should I be afraid

I don't need the world to be content
All I'll ever need is you
Time alone with you is time well spent
For me that simple dream will more than do

If all your dreams were on fire
Which one would you save
When it comes down to the wire
Should I be afraid, should I be afraid
Help and participate instead of copy and paste
If all your dreams were on fire
Which one would you save
When it comes down to the wire
Should I be afraid, should I be afraid

All-Night Vigil - Nunc Dimittis

(Russian Orthodox All-Night Vigil Ceremony)

Nyne otpushchayeshi raba Tvoego, Vladyko
Po glagolu Tvoyemu s mirom
Yako videsta ochi moi spaseniye Tvoye
Ezhe esi ugotoval pred litsem vsekh lyudei
Svet vo otkrovenie yazykov
I slavu lyudei Tvoikh Izrailya

O Holy Night

(John Sullivan Dwight)

O holy night!, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear saviour's birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appeared and the world felt its worth
Help and participate instead of copy and paste
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, oh night divine

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by his cradle we stand

So led by a light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here come the men from the orient land

The king of kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night, night divine

Oh night divine
Oh night divine
The stars are brightly shining
Oh night divine

Alfie

( Cilla Black Cover / The Love I'm Frightened of EP )

What's it all about, Alfie
Is it just for the moment we live
What's it all about when you sort it out, Alfie
Are we meant to take more than we give
Or are we meant to be kind

And if only fools are kind, alfie
Then I guess it's wise to be cruel
And if life belongs only to the strong, alfie
What will you lend on an old golden rule
As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Alfie

I know there's something much more
Something even non-believers can believe in
Copy paste is a sin, always on the run is better
I believe in love, alfie
Without true love we just exist, Alfie
Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing, Alfie
When you walk let your heart lead the way
And you'll find love any day, Alfie

Blowin' in the Wind

( Live / Bob Dylan Cover )

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man
Yes, and how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand

Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned
The answer, my friend, is blowin', is blowin'
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry

Yes, and how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died
The answer, my friend, is blowin', is blowin'
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free

Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see
The answer, my friend, is blowin', is blowin'
The answer is blowin' in the wind

The answer, my friend, is blowin', is blowin'
The answer is blowin' in the wind

By The Light Of The Magical Moon

I'm gonna dance with my baby
By the light of a magical moon
By the light of a magical moon
As I go along my way
I say hey-hey
I say hey-hey

I'm gonna talk with the elders
And tell all of our hearts
That is good I'll barefoot dance with my baby
By the light of a magical moon
As I go along my way
I say hey-hey
I say hey-hey

T'm gonna dance with my baby
By the light of a magical moon
dance with my baby
By the light of a magical moon

When I slay the darkest day
Then we can play
'Till that deep and joyous day
We'll dance and pray
Alright

Dirtu Dice

Got an angel, on one shoulder and a devil on the other
And his good advice that I take
I live with a sprinkle of a little sin
When the world is asleep I'm awake

With the roll of my dirty dice
I'm only following the devil's advice
I'll take your love and leave my kind regards
But I never cheat at cards

So you really think you're leading
When we tango across the floor
It's only cause my feet are out of sight
Mine is the hand that spins you round
Then it pushes you out into the night

With the roll of my dirty dice
I'm only following the devil's advice
I'll take your love and leave my kind regards
But I never cheat at cards

With the roll of my dirty dice
I'm only following the devil's advice
I'll take your love and leave my kind regards
But I never cheat at cards

I'd Be Nowhere Without You

Toes teased the grass while you read me from The Tempest
Kiss cracking glass while you read me from The Tempest
Then the pearls reappeared
From the free and savage sea

I'd be nowhere without you
I'd be nowhere
Chaos colliding
In cold air
Without you I'd be nowhere
We are all we need
In this wild sea

The words you weave for me I love to feel
Could not believe when you spun me like a spinning wheel

You're the compass I'm the map
Atop this free and savage sea

I'd be nowhere without you
I'd be nowhere
Chaos colliding
In cold air
Without you I'd be nowhere
We are all we need
In this wild sea

I put a spell on you

( Screamin' Jay Hawkins Cover / Live )

I put a spell on you
Beause you're mine
You better stop the things you do
I ain't lyin'
No i ain't lyin'

You know i can't stand it
You're fooling around
I can't stand it
You are breaking me down
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
You're mine

You know i can't standing it
You're fooling around
I can't standing it
You are breaking me down (down down)
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine

You hear me
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
You better stop the things you do
I am not lying... No, i am not lying

It's Only Pain

( It's only Pain EP )

It's only pain
It only hurts
I'm only down on the floor
Where I've been before
And I'll be here again
Though it hurts to lose you
It's only pain

We went so far
We flew so high
Now it's not easy to watch it die
To just let go
And not ask the reason why
But it don't matter anymore

It's only pain
It only hurts
I'm only down on the floor
Where I've been before
And I'll be here again
Though it hurts to lose you
It's only pain

It's not my style
It's not my way
To see the future in shades of grey
Though I still
Can't bring myself to say
That you don't matter anymore

It's only pain
It only hurts
I'm only down on the floor
Where I've been before
And I'll be here again
Though it hurts to lose you
It's only pain
It's only pain
It's only pain

Joan Of Ark & Jack The Lad

We tried to change the world quite rightly
Maybe we changed it ever so slightly
I don't know
Baby did we

Now I've forgotten how to kiss you
But I know that in the night I still miss you
And all the love we had

When I was Joan of Arc
And you were Jack the Lad

Though we put on airs and graces
We were kids with dirty faces on the road
Hidden somewhere

Being poor but feeling richer
And the earth stood still as I took a picture
Of all the love we had

When I was Joan of Arc
And you were Jack the Lad

And like all the things we knew it wouldn't last
By my mind is holding memories
cause we spend the time too fast
Then the feeling kind of shifty
And in time we both just drifting different ways, different stories

Different roads we both had wandered
But I know I'll never say
That we spand it
All the love we had

When I was Joan of Arc
And you were Jack the Lad

When I was Joan of Arc
And you were Jack the Lad

Kozmic Blues

( Janis Joplin Cover / Live )

Time keeps moving on
Friends they turn away
But I keep on moving on
But I never found out why
I keep pushing so hard the dream
I keep trying to make it right
Through another lonely day

Dawn has come at last
Twenty-five years, honey just in one night, oh yeah
Well, I'm twenty-five years older now
And I know it can't be right
And I'm no better baby and I can't help you no more
Than I did when I was just a girl

Don't make no difference, baby
And I know that I could always try
There's a fire inside of everyone of us
I better hold it now
I better need it now
I better use it till the day that I die

Don't expect any answers, dear
For I know that they don't
That they don't come with age, no, no, no
Well, I ain't never gonna love you any better, baby
And I'm never never gonna love you right
So you'd better take it right now, take it right now

Oh don't make no difference, baby
And it never ever ever will, will
I'm gonna need a little bit of loving, baby
I better hold it now
I better need it now
I better use it till the day that I die

Don't make no difference, baby
And it never ever ever will, will
I'm gonna need a little bit of loving, baby
I better hold it now
I better need it now
I better use it
I better use it till the day that I die

Don't make no difference, baby
And it never ever ever will, will
I'm gonna need a little bit of loving, baby
I better hold it now
I better need it now
I better use it till the day that I die

Love cats

( The Cure cover / Live )

Let's go and throw
All the songs we know
Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We move like cagey tigers
Oh - we couldn't get closer than this
The way we walk
The way we talk
The way we stalk
The way we kiss
We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger wider and brighter
Let's go and throw
All the songs we know...
Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty!
You know that i'd do anything for you...
We should have each other to dinner huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It's the grooviest thing
It's the perfect dream
Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats (lovecats)

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We move like cagey tigers
Oh - we couldn't get closer than this
The way we walk
The way we talk
The way we stalk
And the way we kiss
Interlude
We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger wider and brighter
Let's go and throw
All the songs we know...
Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
Babababa...

Qviteli potlebi

Yellow leaves

( Translation )

The wind is carrying the yellow leaves
And as a snow it on your door leaves
I call you but answers me quietness
Yellow leaves are like the silence

I call you but answers me quietness
Yellow leaves are like the silence

Spaceman

( Live / Jas Mann)

Spaceman I always wanted you to go
Into space man (intergalactic Crime)
Spaceman I always wanted you to go
Into space man (intergalactic Crime)

Pungent smells they consummate my home
Beyond the black horizon
Trying to take control
See my girl she shivers in her bones
The sun and zenith rising
Trying to take us all

There's a fire between us
So where is your God
There's a fire between us
I can't get off the carousel
I can't get off the carousel
I can't get off the carousel
I can't get off this world

The sickening taste
Homophobic jokes
Images of fascist folks
Beam me up 'cause I can't breathe

Spaceman I always wanted you to go
Into space man

It's time to terminate the great white world
Morbid fascinations television takes control
Decimation diffrent races fall
Electronic information tampers with your soul

There's a fire between us
So where is your God
There's a fire between us
I can't get off the carousel
I can't fall off this world

The sickening taste
Homophobic jokes
Images of fascist folks
Beam me up 'cause I can't breathe

Spaceman I always wanted you to go
Into space man

Spaceman I always wanted you to go
Into space man (intergalactic crime)
Spaceman I always wanted you to go
Into space man (intergalactic crime)

Spaceman, Spaceman, Spaceman, Spaceman
Spaceman, Spaceman, Spaceman, Spaceman
Space...man, Spaceman...

Somewhere In The Same Hotel

( The Katie Melua Collection )

Somewhere in the same hotel
Was it in the bar
I saw you once, but I don't know who you are
I don't usually obsess, but I confess
I wish I knew you well
All I know is, here I am and there you are, somewhere in the same hotel

Somewhere in the same hotel
Yesterday we passed again
And I thought you looked my way
I don't want for this to be a fantasy
But as far as I can tell
You're alone just like me, here at night, somewhere in the same hotel

Maybe you're in the next room
Or just across the hall
Maybe somebody's waiting
At home for you to call

I'm yearning in the morning light
Of the dawning day
Cos we missed our chance
And I have to go away
I don't even know you're name
But all the same
I hope you're sleeping well
If you're still there all alone
Cos I'm no longer
Somewhere in the same hotel

Too Much Love Will Kill You

(Live at Nelson Mandela's 46664 Concert)

I'm just a shadow of the girl I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long

I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it could be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind

You're headed for disaster
Cause you've never read the signs

Too much love will kill you, every time...

I'm just the shadow of the girl I used to be
And it feels like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would you feel if you're standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
Though there's no making sense of it
Everywhere I go, I have to leave

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as not at all
It'll train the power that's in you
Make you scream and bleed and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you, every time...

Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You give your life, you take your soul
But here it comes again

Too much love will kill you in the end
In the end

Toy Collection

( Live )

I will not sell my toy collection
If I did I would weep
Who's to say what you need and what you don't
On a desert island they're the things I'll keep

Some children had their parents read them stories
Well I heard mine directly from the source
Captain Kirk shared his tales and glories
While fighting a deadly force

Who's to say when you get older
You don't need a toy collection
Who's to say when you get older
That you have to follow convention

Black beard told me of his troubled mother
And with his songs he'd sing me off to sleep
He said superman was my real father
And they gave me dreams that I still keep

Who's to say when you get older
You don't need a toy collection
Who's to say when you get older
That you have to follow convention

Who's to say when you get older
You don't need a toy collection
Who's to say when you get older
That you have to follow convention
That you have to follow convention

Two Bare Feet

( The Katie Melua Collection )

Dancing cat and dancing mouse
Down behind the Hyatt House
You don't need no food to eat
All you need is two bare feet

Clock-house cuckoos drinking wine
Racing through those traffic signs
But walking out on Lazy Street
All you need is two bare feet

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

Crocodiles of sun-soaked kids
In sexy sandals, heaven forbid
For kisses good enough to eat
All you need is two bare feet

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

Dancing cat and dancing mouse
Down behind the Hyatt House
You don't need no food to eat
All you need is two bare feet

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

Crazy cat and crazy mouse
Down behind the Hyatt House

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

Two, two, two bare feet
Two, two, two bare feet

Under The Cherry Moon

( Prince / iTunes digital album 'Pictures' )

How can I stand to stay where I am
Poor butterfly who don't understand
Why can't I fly away in a special sky
If I don't find my destiny soon
I'll die in your arms under the cherry moon

I want to live life to the ultimate high
Maybe I'll die young like heroes die
Maybe I'll kiss you some wild special way
If nobody kills me or thrills me soon
I'll die in your arms under the cherry moon

That's alright

Lovers like us dear are born to die
If they don't find us, what will we do
I guess we'll make love under the cherry moon
I'll die in your arms under the cherry moon

What A Wonderful World

( The Katie Melua Collection )

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I say to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
bright sunny days, dark sacred nights
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow are so pretty in the skies
Are also on the faces of people walking by
I see friends shaking hands sayin' "how do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you"

I see babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world
And I say to myself what a wonderful world

When You Taught Me How To Dance

( Miss Potter OST )

When you taught me how to dance
Years ago, with misty eyes,
Every step and silent glance,
Every move, a sweet surprise.
Someone must have taught you well,
To beguile and to entrance,
For that night you cast your spell,
And you taught me how to dance.

Like reflections in a lake
I recall what went before.
As I give, I'll learn to take,
And will be alone no more
Other lights may light my way
I may even find romance;
But I won't forget that night
When you taught me how to dance

Cold winds blow, but up on those hills you'll find me
And I know you're walking right behind me,

When you taught me how to dance
Years ago, with misty eyes,
Every step and silent glance,
Every move, a sweet surprise.
Someone must have taught you well,
To beguile and to entrance,
For that night you cast your spell,
And you taught me how to dance.
And you taught me how to dance.
