Marketa Irglova, the 23-year old Academy Award winner and one half of The Swell Season, will be releasing her first full-length solo album, titled Anar, October 11th on Anti Records. Citing references ranging from Otis Redding, to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, to the soundtrack from Jesus Christ Super Star, Irglova pulled from numerous influences to create a delicate balance of ethereal vocals and expanding instrumentals on her 12-track debut, including the R&B influenced “Go Back” and heart felt song “Crossroads.” It was just over three years ago that the song “Falling Slowly” from the film Once shocked the world by winning the Oscar. In the days following, a global spotlight was placed on Irglova after she was the first winner in the Academy's history brought back by the shows host, Jon Stewart, to finish her acceptance speech. In the ensuing years she has continued to share in a series of high points that include releasing another record as The Swell Season, touring as a vocalist in Iron and Wine, helping prepare the Broadway version of Once and even an appearance on The Simpsons. However her most recent achievement, Anar, is easily the one she is most proud of. Raised in the Czech Republic as a classically trained pianist and vocalist, Irglova had established a new relationship with music after moving to New York City, where most of the album was written. After spending time at an intimate art and performance room in Brooklyn called Zora Space, Irglova was moved to share her solo material and started experimenting with new sounds. She began to craft songs with her solo effort in mind, inspired by surrounding artists, musicians and fans from varying cultures. Anar became Irglova's creative outlet in documenting and expressing the personal journey she has been on the last few years. It was during a performance at Zora Space that Irglova was drawn to a painting on exhibition, “The Last Fall” by Iranian artist Nahid Hagigat. Immediately taken by the contrast of color – a crimson red pomegranate placed on a shining golden background - Irglova purchased the painting and in turn named the album Anar, which is the Persian word for “pomegranate.” For Irglova, the pomegranate, which is a fruit tied to fertility and abundance, stood as a symbol of the fertile land of creativity she began to explore after her move to New York. The recording of the album took place in Chicago at Soma Studios with producer and engineer Tim Iseler, as well as, fellow New Yorker, Persian drum player and vocalist, Aida Shahghasemi. Irglova will be hitting the road with a band in support of Anar this fall. Stay tuned for tour dates to be announced.

The Swell Season

This Low

We made a plan that was subject to change
So whatever was it works out we both get the blame
In the arms of this low
And you took the wind right out of my sails
By sweating me out on all the little details
In the arms of this low
In the arms of this low

So thread the light
So thread the light

We made a choice and we knew we would pay
For stealing the joy and trying to escape
From the arms of this low
And if by some chance you break from the pack
You know I'll be waiting to welcome you back
Into the arms of this low
In the arms of this low

Thread the light
Thread the light
Thread the light
Thread the light
Shine the light
Don't hide the light
Live the light
And give the light
Seek the light
And speak the light
Crave the light, and brave the light
Stare the light
And share the light
Show the light
And know the light
Raise the light
And praise the light
Thread the light
And spread the light

Sleeping

Are you sleeping
Still dreaming
Still drifting off alone
I'm not leaving with this feeling
So you'd better best be told
And how in the world did you come
To be such a lazy love

It's so simple, and fitting
The path that you are on
We're not talking, there's no secrets
There's just a note that you have gone
And all that you've ever owned
Is packed in the hall to go

And how am I supposed to live without you
A wrong word said in anger and you were gone

I'm not listening for signals
It's all dust now on the shelf
Are you still working
Still counting
Still buried in yourself
And how in the world did we come
To have such an absent love

And how am I supposed to live without you
A wrong word said in anger and you were gone
And how am I supposed to live without anyone

And how in the world did you come
To be such a lazy love
And where did you go

Falling Slowly

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

Drown Out

Drown out, the voice that breaks the silence
And talks the joy out of everything
You were found out and had to walk
in darkness without the only thing you care about

And we drive away and head for south
We found our way and blocked it out

Cry alone, and die alone
Pray alone, and stay alone

You were burned out
And had to stop before all hell broke
And finally took its toll

And save our souls were playing dead
And mine for gold in a heart of lead
And turn around and save yourself
We found our way and blocked it out

Cry alone, and die alone
Pray alone, and stay alone

Drown out, drown out

Lies

I think it's time, we give it up
And figure out what's stopping us
From breathing easy, and talking straight
The way is clear if you're ready now
The volunteer is slowing down
And taking time to save himself

The little cracks they escalated
And before you know it is too late
For making circles and telling lies

You're moving too fast for me
And I can't keep up with you
Maybe if you slowed down for me
I could see you're only telling
Lies, lies, lies
Breaking us down with your
Lies, lies, lies
When will you learn

The little cracks they escalated
And before you know it is too late
For making circles and telling lies

You're moving too fast for me
And I can't keep up with you
Maybe if you'd slowed down for me
I could see you're only telling
Lies, lies, lies
Breaking us down with your
Lies, lies, lies
When will you learn

So plant the thought and watch it grow
Wind it up and let it go

When Your Mind's Made Up

So, if you want something
And you call, call
Then'll come running
To fight, and I'll be at your door
When there's something worth running for

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to stop it

You see, you're just like everyone
When the shit falls all you want to do is run, away
And hide all by yourself
When you're far from me, there's nothing else

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point even talking
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to fight it

So, if you ever want something
And you call, call
Then I'll come running.

Leave

(written with Damien Rice)

I can't wait forever is all that you said
Before you stood up
And you won't disappoint me
I can do that myself
But I'm glad that you've come
Now if you don't mind

Leave, leave
And free yourself at the same time
Leave, leave
I don't understand, you've already gone

And I hope you feel better
Now that it's out
What took you so long
And the truth has a habit
Of falling out of your mouth
But now that it's come
If you don't mind

Leave, leave
And please yourself at the same time
Leave, leave
Let go of my hand
You said what you have to now
Leave, leave
Let go of my hand
You said what you came to now
Leave, leave
Leave, leave
Let go of my hand
You said what you have to now
Leave, leave...

The Moon

Cut the bonds with the moon
And let the dogs gather
Burn the gauze in the spoon
And suck the poison up
And bleed

Shut the door to the moon
And let the birds gather
Play no more with the fool
And let the souls wander
And bleed
From the soul

A slow hurt.. and it breaks us..
And so down,
Down, down and so plain
So down
When you play some more it seems so
And my friends are past this game
Of breakdowns
And our friends that are lost at sea..
Throw down
And I'll break the wasted space
Slow down, slow down,
If you don't slow down, slow down
If you don't slow down, slow..

Cut the bonds with the moon
And watch the dogs gather

Alone Apart

How many times have I been here
How many times was I lost
And how many times I'd be lost in the sea
If you weren't there to rescue me

We're sailing, sailing every night
We're drifting, drifting alone apart
Not to show that we're in need
But I'd heal your wounds if you bleed

How many times have I hurt you
How many times have you
And how many times I'd been on my knees
Begging, begging please forgive me

We're sailing, sailing every night
We're drifting, drifting alone apart
Not to show that we're in need
But I'd heal your wounds if you bleed

Thank you for being so patient with me
I've been weaker than I ought to be
Despair and jealousy blinded my mind
And I couldn't see how you're trying for me.

Once Soundtrack

Falling Slowly

(Glen Hansard/Markéta Irglová)

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

If You Want Me

(Markéta Irglová/Glen Hansard)

Are you really here or am I dreaming?
I can't tell dreams from truth
For it's been so long since I have seen you
I can hardly remember your face anymore

When I get really lonely and the distance causes only silence
I think of you smiling
With pride in your eyes
A lover that sighs

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

Are you really sure that you'd believe me?
When others say I lie
I wonder if you could ever despise me
When you know I really try
To be a better one to satisfy you
But you're everything to me
And I'll do what you ask me
If you'll let me be free.

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

If you want me
Satisfy me
If you want me
Satisfy me

Broken Hearted Hoover Fixer Sucker Guy

(Glen Hansard)

Ten years ago I fell in love with an Irish girl she took my heart
Well she went and screwed some guy that she knew
And now I'm in Dublin with a broken heart

Oh broken-hearted Hoover fixer sucker guy
Oh broken-hearted Hoover fixer sucker, sucker guy

One day I'll go there and win her once again
But until then I'm just a sucker of a guy.

When Your Mind's Made Up

(Glen Hansard/Markéta Irglová)

So, if you want something
And you call, call
Then I'll come running
To fight, and I'll be at your door
When there's nothing worth running for

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point even talking

You see, you're just like everyone
When the shit falls all you want to do is run, away
And hide all by yourself
well there's no point that's gonna warn to help

When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point even talking
When your mind's made up
When your mind's made up
There's no point trying to change it

So, if you ever want something
And you call, call
Then I'll come running

Lies

(Glen Hansard)

I think it's time, we give it up
And figure out what's stopping us
From breathing easy, and talking straight
The way is clear if you're ready now
The volunteer is slowing down
And taking time to save himself

The little cracks they escalated
And before you know it is too late
For making circles and telling lies

You're moving too fast for me
And I can't keep up with you
Maybe if you slowed down for me
I could see you're only telling
Lies, lies, lies
Breaking us down with your
Lies, lies, lies
When will you learn

The little cracks they escalated
And before you know it is too late
For making circles and telling lies

You're moving too fast for me
And I can't keep up with you
Maybe if you'd slowed down for me
I could see you're only telling
Lies, lies, lies
Breaking us down with your
Lies, lies, lies
When will you learn

So plant the thought and watch it grow
Wind it up and let it go

Gold

(Interference)

And I love her so
I wouldn't trade her for gold
Walking on moonbeams
I was born with a silver spoon

Hell I'm gonna be me
Gonna be free
Walking on moonbeams
And staring out to sea

And if a door be closed
Then a row of homes start building
And tear your curtains down
For sunlight is like gold

Hell you better be you
Do what you can do
Walking on moonbeams
And staring out to sea

'Cause if your skin was soil
How long do you think before they'd start digging
And if your life was gold
How long do you think you'd stay living

And I love her so
I wouldn't trade her for gold

The Hill

(Markéta Irglová)

Walking up the hill tonight and you have closed your eyes
I wish I didn't have to make those mistakes and be wise
Please try to be patient and know that I'm still learning
I'm sorry that you have to see the strength inside me burning
Where are you my angel now don't you see me crying?
And I know that you can't do it all but you can't say I'm not trying
I'm on my knees in front of him but he doesn't seem to see me
But all his troubles on his minds, he's looking right through me
And I'm letting myself down. beside you this fire in you
And I wish that you could see that half my troubles too

Looking at you sleeping, I'm with the man I love
I'm still here weeping while the hours pass so slow
And I know that in the morning I'll have to let you go
And you'll be just a man once I used to know
And for these past few days someone I don't recognise
This isn't all my fault, when will you realise

Looking at you leaving, I'm looking for a sign.

Fallen From The Sky

(Glen Hansard)

You must have fallen from the sky
You must have shattered on the wrong way
You brought so many to the light
And now you're by yourself
There comes a point in every fight
Where giving up seems the only way
When everyone has said goodbye
And now you're on your own

And if you need somewhere to fall apart
Somewhere to fall apart

When the rules of Cain
The rights you made
The hours did crawl
For those to blame
The broken glass
The fool that asked
The moving arrow to stop

You must have fallen from the sky
You must have come here in the pouring rain
You took so many through the light
And now you're on your own

And if you need somewhere to fall apart
Somewhere to fall apart

Well the ruins of man
The bloody rag
Be the fool the bull
The powdered hag
The nights that make
The rattle rag
The wolves that follow the ousted man
The falling star
The way we are
Divine
The rules that never ever multiply

You must have fallen from the sky
You must have come here on the wrong way
You came among us every time
But now you're on your own

And if you need somewhere to fall apart
Somewhere to fall apart

Well they call you saint
The basket case
The rules of thumb
You have to break
The raging skull
The rag to the bull
The nails that drag
In either hand
Well I will make
My work of that
I know this place
I know this task

You must have fallen from the sky

Leave

(Glen Hansard)

I can't wait forever is all that you said
Before you stood up
And you won't disappoint me
I can do that myself
But I'm glad that you've come
Now if you don't mind

Leave, leave,
And free yourself at the same time
Leave, leave,
I don't understand, you've already gone

And I hope you feel better
Now that it's out
What took you so long
And the truth has a habit
Of falling out of your mouth
But now that it's come
If you don't mind

Leave, leave,
And please yourself at the same time
Leave, leave,
Let go of my hand
You said what you have to now
Leave, leave,
Let go of my hand
You said what you came to now
Leave, leave,
Leave, leave,
Let go of my hand
You said what you have to now
Leave, leave...

Trying To Pull Myself Away

(Glen Hansard)

Breaking up in the station, a final train
I don't even know if I'll ever see you again
Is it a choice that we even have?

Bang bang down on the piano 'til I smash the keys
Listening alone with the melodies
Everything's gone and I don't know where

And the rule of thumb don't apply anymore
'Cause the house is burning....

Trying to pull myself away
I'm caught in a pattern and I can't escape
Trying to pull myself away

Lately when I get lost there's this thing I know
Even the dogs have somewhere to go
Everything comes if you just it be

Work, work, brighten the corners that will never see
Untangle the thoughts that you know what they mean
I hope that the answer doesn't come to late

And the rule of thumb don't apply on me
'Cause the table are turning

Trying to pull myself away
I'm caught in a pattern and I can't escape
Trying to pull myself away
I'm caught in a pattern and I can't escape
Can't escape

Trying to pull myself away, everything's gone
Trying to pull myself away, everything's gone

All The Way Down

(Glen Hansard)

You have broken me all the way down
Down upon my knees
And you have broken me all the way now
You'll be the last you see

And some fight you gave when I pushed you away from me
And in the morning when you're turning, I'll be far to sea
You have broken me all the way down
You'll be the last you see

And what chance had we got when you missed every shot for me
And in the morning when you're turning, I'll be out of reach
And in the darkness when you find this, I'll be far to sea

And You have broken me all the way down
You'll be the last you see

Once

(Glen Hansard/Markéta Irglová)

Part of me has died
And won't return
And part of me wants to hide
The part that's burned

Once
Once
I knew how to talk to you
Once
Once
But not anymore

Hear the sirens
Call me home, call me home
Call me home, call me home

Part of me has vowed
To watch it burn
And the heart of me has tried
But look what it's become

Once
Once
I knew where to look for you
Once
Once
But that was before
Once
Once
I would have laid down and died for you
Once
Once
But not anymore

Hear the sirens
Call me home, call me home
Call me home, call me home
Call me home

Say It To Me Now

(Glen Hansard)

Scratching at the surface now
And I'm trying hard to work it out
And so much has gone misunderstood
This mystery only leads to doubt
And I'm looking for a sign
In this dark uneasy time

So if you have something to say
Say it to me now

And I'm not trying to pass the buck
I'm just trying to get a better look
And I'm wondering how it feels for you
Now that the shoe is on the other foot
And I didn't understand
When you reached down to take my hand

And if you have something to say
You'd better say it now

Cause this is what you've waited for
A chance to even up the score
And as these shadows fall on me now
I will somehow

Cause I'm clearing up this wreckage Lord
And there's more than you've ever seen before

So if you have something to say
Say it to me now

Strict joy

Low rising

I want to sit you down and talk
I want to pull the veils and find what it is I've done wrong
I want to tear these curtains down
I want you to meet me somewhere tonight
In this old tourist town

And we'll go
Low rising
‘Cause we've got to come up, we've got to come up
Low rising
Cause there's no further for us to fall
Low rising
‘Cause I feel we've had enough, and we're
Low rising
All for the love of you

I want to take you to the rock
I want to jump right in and see what that big ocean's got
I want to turn this thing around
I want to drink with you all night until we both fall down

'Till we go
Low rising
‘Cause we've got to come up, we've got to come up
Low rising
Cause there's no further for us to fall
Low rising
'Till I feel we've had enough, and we're
Low rising
All for the love of you

Low rising

Low rising
‘Cause we've got to come up, we've got to come up
Low rising
'Till I feel we've had enough, and we're
Low rising to
Cause there's no further for us to fall
Low rising
Oh

All for the love of you

For the love of you
We're low rising, low rising
I want to sit you down and talk
I want to sit you down and talk about it all

Feeling the pull

Well I'm heading back to pack a bag
To head out on the road
To take away what I know is mine
And I'm running down and past the yellow house
With Joe into the breeze where no one seems to care

And I'm feeling the pull
Dragging me off again
And I'm feeling so small
Against the sky tonight

Well stories of an open light
And every time we work ourselves up into a rage
We smash and grab
And pull the handle no one says but
Wants to be the one just climbing out

And I'm feeling the pull
Dragging me off again
And I'm feeling so small
Against the big sky tonight
Tonight, yeah

And I'm feeling the pull
Dragging me off again
And I'm feeling so small
Against the big sky tonight

And I'm feeling the pull
Dragging me on again
And I'm feeling so small
Against the big moon sky tonight
Tonight, oh

In these arms

Use the truth as a weapon
To beat up all your friends
Every chink in the armour
An excuse to cause offence
And the boys from the hallways
Calling out your name
And true love will find them in the end

You were restless
I was somewhere less secure
So I went running to the rope
And so now this
The long list of places i was
I quit my rambling and i came home

‘Cause maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms

Use your saints
And your mantra
And your things to keep you calm
If you stay with that asshole
He's gonna do you harm
There's a voice singing loudly on the radio
Just for you
And good fortune will find him in the end

Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms

The rain

Just before the rain came down
The sun came out at last
And as for all assumptions made,
And questions never asked
I know we're not where I promised you we'd be by now
But maybe it's a question of who'd want it anyhow?

Even now the rainbow's end seems closer to your hands
And is it knowing when to stop
The measure of a man
Okay
We're not what I promised you we would become
But maybe it's a question of how much it really was

We had enough
Had enough
There's plenty more where that came from now
You're feeling bored
Swallowed up
We got hours on you now

Just before the rain came down
The sun came out at last
And as for all assumptions
And questions never asked

Okay
I'm not what I promised you I would become
I know
We're not what I promised you we'd be by now

Had enough
Had enough
There's plenty more where that came from now
Feeling bored
Swallowed up
We got hours on you now
Feeling tall
Is the crawling out
We got hours on you now

Fantasy Man

This diamond's growing in the mountains
Beneath the pressure of all time
They grow in hope and expectation
Waiting for your hands to find
'Cause only you could reach inside me
And figure out the worth
Of a life I live providing
What it was you needed most

And if everything is measured
By the hole it leaves behind
Then this mountain has been levelled
And there's no more diamonds in the mine

Go on now, just leave it
The timing wasn't right
And the force that swept us both away
Was too strong for us to fight

Fantasy man, you are always
One step ahead of me
Well I never heard the warning
I haven't got things right
But the sun came out this morning
And filled my room with light
So go now, you are forgiven
Let's put it down to life
The story of two lovers
Who danced both edges of the night

In the station you are standing
Not knowing what you want
And the secrets that we're defending
Have become our only bond
Just be patient while I wait here
Our journeys out of sync
While you're out there running in the chaos
I need some time to think

Fantasy man, you are always
One step ahead of me
Well I never heard the warning
I haven't got things right
But the sun came out this morning
And filled my room with light
So go now, you are forgiven
Let's put it down to life
The story of two lovers
Who danced both edges of the night

Paper cup

Paper cup got no worries
Got no dog in this fight
Paper plane take this note
Straight to her
If her heart's still in the fight

Maybe time will decide
This restless spirit can survive

Paper saint would you hear her
When she calls
You got no dog in this fight

Paper bird take this offering
From her hands
A simple trail back to the light

Maybe time will provide
Give you the strength to decide
I hope it's not too late

Maybe time will decide
The restless spirit can survive
For ??? no more
Maybe time will provide
Give you the strength to decide
You know it's not too late

Paper cup you got no worries
Got no, got no dog in this fight
And got no worries
Got no dog in this fight

High horses

There's a light inside us all
It only shines as bright as we are
And you're falling down so low
And we're worried for you
And we worry...

But even on our worst days
We were never quite like this
We've gone as far as we can go
They are crushing
No

At the heart of every fool
Is the hopeless, stupid tune
And there's this lingering, this ignorant feeling
That I'm just a fool
That I can see something

But even at your worst day
You were never bad as this
You've gone far as you can go
And I'm dying

You and your high horses...

The verb

What's the verb to
Cut it off to
Take a knife and hack away at it
You keep saying
Well that's the last time
You'll pretend to
Stand aside no matter what we did
I'm not playing
All in all they're
Just enough to
Keep us sliding back to where we were
I'm not waiting
That's the last time
You get friends who
Will tell you that you walked away with it
And you barely scrape through

I'm tired of fighting she said
Your words just rattle my head
All joy escapes in the dark
And I can't make this make sense
Your words are lost to me now
I cannot take it, I'm out
I'm stuck here kidding myself
Cause you're out there caring somewhere

So what's the verb to
Kick it over
Take the time and walk away from it
I'm not playing
That'll never sit with us well
We're far too pious to get out of it
And we're on our way

I'm tired of fighting you said
Your words just rattle my head
All joy's escaped in the dark
And i can't make this make sense
Your thoughts are lost to me now
I cannot take it, I'm out
I'm stuck here killing myself
You're out there drinking somewhere

I'm sorry I've lost all my hope
I cannot take it no more
I'm stuck here killing myself
You're out there laughing somewhere
I tore my heart out, no more
I've burned this bridge and it's gone
I'm stuck here killing myself
And you're out there laughing somewhere
This joy is lost to me now
I cannot take it, I'm out
I'm stuck here killing myself
And you're out there drinking somewhere

I'm stuck here killing myself

I have loved you wrong

Forgive me, lover, for I have sinned
For I have done you wrong
For I have hurt beyond repair
And when tears occurred no I didn't care
Forgive me, lover, for I have sinned
For I have loved you wrong.

But there's a strange door grown in my chest it
Beats for you it will not rest so,
Meet me in our secret place
When the time has come

Rest your head in my lap and I'll
Beat you out of your own trap and I'll
Show you how much you have missed truth in
Time we were in right

So forgive me, lover, for I have sinned
For i have let you go.

But you've been
Every now and then on my mind,
You're every now and then on my mind (7x)

You're on my mind
On my mind (7x)

On my mind (7x)

Love that conquers

In a time when your word was true
You gave your heart to the ones you knew
And at the dawn of every day
There was a light that you gave to me

You gave yourself to a love that conquered
Give everything to a love that conquers

And then you came, and you came real close
You gave the heart what it wanted most
You took your time and you made it clear
Maybe time will erase something

You ran away with a love that conquered.
You ran away with a love that conquers

Been too long in the shadows, too long in the dark
Give yourself to a love that conquers

Two tongues

What you give
Or give out
Is the only thing that really counts

Will you stay here
Stay around
And we'll both start working this out

But it's not just this it's everything
It's so hard to reach and impossible
To really read when you're talking
With two tongues in your mouth
And I wish you'd quit this mumbling
Underneath your breath it's killing me
You've not said nothing yet

Who's talking now
Well I guess I'm starting to doubt.

Are we lost here
Are you keeping count
Or are you gonna just let me down

Your heart's not in it, it's every word
It's plain to see you're still mumbling
What's underneath, you're so curious
Well it's two strikes and you're out
And I'm tiring of this attitude
And you fall to pieces like you do
I can't believe you're still talking
With two tongues in your mouth
After all we've been around

Will you hear me out
You're the only thing that really counts

Back broke

Back broke and dancing
‘Cause you're here beside me
‘Cause you're here
‘Cause you're here
Here with me

Back broke and happy
‘Cause you're near
‘Cause you're near
Nearer to me

I came on your command
Don't give me false hope
I'm back by big demand
Don't give me false hope

Back broke and smiling
‘Cause it's clear
‘Cause it's clear
You still want me

I came on your command
Don't give me false hope
We're back by big demand
Don't give us false hope

Back broke and crying
‘Cause you're near
‘Cause you're near
Our parting

Anar

Your Company

I've got it all figured out, baby.
You're coming home with me
And we will laugh our worries away
And you can stay as long as you please

'Cause I'm really just glad that I could have met you
It's easy to see how much I like your company
But I wouldn't dream of trying to keep you
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Well you know how they say that love heals all fear
Well in a similar vein I thrive when you're near
But you've had your pain and you've had your grief
And at the hardest of times she brought you relief

And you love her
Even if only for that
And she knows she saved you
And she won't let you forget

But I remember the time that I sat beside you
And your hand brushed against my knee
And I thought I would die for that alone instantly
But I'm sure you knew just how good that would feel

Well I know I had a good reason for not seeing this through
Oh but now I forget and I don't know what to do
But you can hold my hand and you can kiss me too
Just while I try and remember why I shouldn't want you

We Are Good

Early morning, rising with the sun
Resting where the sky meets the earth
Feeling the first rays of sunlight reaching into my soul
Where they reinstate the sense of my own self-worth

If you're not good, you're bad
That's far too black and white
Behold the glorious sun
In all its radiance bright

It too at times is obscured
By the thick blue veil of night
Still the moon and all the stars
Combines to reflect it's light

And so it is that we are good
Thought we do not always do as we should
We lose track of right and wrong
And we're not always standing strong
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
But still don't you wanna believe
In things that eyes do not perceive
Like our light shining from within
That in a battle with our darkness can win

The gates of heaven open before me
As my heart is given wings and flies
Leaving all pretense behind, everything is crystal clear
Even all the worry of uncertainty subsides

They say that time will come for us to be reborn
Into the newness of unity that has been torn
Into duality, into "it's us against them"
It's from a place of fear that all our conflicts stem

We're almost there, but not yet, still the stage is set
For the play we may enact according to our contract
That we may both you and I, with everybody in our home up high
To awaken from our deep and long undisturbed
Though hardly perfect sleep

If to look is to know the grace, which you bestow
Upon those that you would raise
Into a kind and loving gaze
Then to look is to see everyone as good as they can be

Crossroad

It remains to be seen
To which side I'm gonna lean
Which road will I choose
But will I gain, what will I lose

Am I gonna come to my senses and see the light
In letting go of what I want in order to do what's right
Or be right by who
By me or by you

It's just a crossroad
Is the light red or is it green
I'm getting mixed signals I really don't know what they mean
If I wasn't temporarily blind
If I could only take one look
I know I'd find how simple it all is
How much do I really want this

Is enough not enough
Am I really in love
Or is it nothing but a test
Well if you wanna try me go ahead and be my guest

‘Cause I myself would like to know which way will it go
I guess it's undecided yet, so I'll take it slow
But as I regain my sight
I know I will do what's right
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Indeed it's just a crossroad
Now that I'm willing to clearly see
Things for what they really are and not what I'd like them to be
There's nothing left to think about, I know the way now
I've no more doubt, I let go and release
You do the same for me, please

Wings of Desire

I've often thought about the nature of our meeting,
A handshake for a greeting, a look of tenderness in your eyes
Your hand it felt warm, I held it tight in both of mine
The way I'd cling to a cup of steaming tea in winter

And it's not that I was cold
Although the autumn breeze blew cooler at the shore
It's that when we touched, I saw a glimpse of my future
And I hoped in holding on, I'd see a little more

Now I still thirst for that vision
I still hunger for that touch
I hardly know what to do with myself
I want you so much
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
But my heart will burst before I die of hunger or thirst
For the love I feel but try and contain
If you only knew then I could let it flow freely to you
You'd see how much has been asked of my self-restraint

I could soar like a bird
On these feathered wings of desire

Yeah I love you, could you ever love me too
You don't know how good to you I'd be
I'd make you feel like the wildest of your dreams were real
I'd show you everyday how much you mean to me
I could soar like a bird on these feathered wings of desire

Only in Your Head

Right now it's only in your head
But that might very well be all
It's gonna take to make it come to pass

But is that really what you'd like
And if not why occupy your mind with it at all
Thoughts grow just as easily as grass

As easily as weed
If you don't want it in your garden
Why plant the seed
Why water it
Why tend to it

Well it is all in your hands
And there is no one but yourself
That you can blame
For all that you create
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Maybe our actions are what counts
And not all that we might think
Or feel or say
But don't they all relate

And I know it's easier said than done
But has there ever been a struggle
You thought you wouldn't overcome
But no, looking back you see it's clear
Things could have turned out better
If it wasn't for the fear

Divine Timing

Time, how does it go
Sometimes fast, other times slow
But when I'm with you, time disappears
Weeks can feel like days, days can feel like years

I stood with you, time stood still
And can you kill time, can time kill
Can we stay in our timeless romance

Freedom, what does it mean
Is it worth being chased
Or does it come from within
Leaving the freedom of choice
Isn't that being free
Could you freely choose
To be bound to me

When I met you, the planets did align
And is it not true the timing was divine
Too soon is as bad as too late
Yet here we are and was it not fate
That brought you to me, that brought me to you
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh, I will be good, I will be true
But I will not tie in our love in chains
We can run while if neither pulls the reins
We can run free and have adventures of our own
Take the time if you need to be alone

Go Back

To know the pain of too much tenderness
I would give myself to thee
But just to clarify
My keeping distance I confess
That I know all too well
You're not to be with me

But from across the room you held my gaze
The keeper of my heart came to greet you with a warm embrace
And now I feel this heat in my hands and feet
I have a belly full of butterflies and weakness in my knees
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You better not come any closer
'Cause I'll loose myself if you do
If in truth I cannot have you
Don't encourage me wanting you

Well, go back, go back, go back, go back, go back
Hurry while you still can
Go back now, don't delay yourself
If you cannot be my man

Go back
Go, go back, go back, go back, go back
Go back
Go, go back, go back, go back, go back

Go back
Stop teasing now, go back
Go back
Don't tempt me now, go back
Go back
Be fair now, stop torturing me, go back
Go back
Be good, go back
Go back...

Let Me Fall in Love

Before I go to sleep tonight won't you tell a story
One that does not center around power or glory
A simple tale of love that is tender and sweet
However glorified still uncorrupted with a steady heartbeat
Or better still of love that's also passionate and wild
That holds the light of youth and makes you playful like a child

Then let me fall in love, fall in love
Let me fall in love, fall in love

I've heard people speak of sad endings and broken hearts
But the heart does heal and where one thing ends another starts
I've hear them say they wished they never knew such pain
But to wish for pain-free love is to wish in vain
And anyway pain does not have to mean suffering
If love is a gift, to it yield an offering
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
'Cause when you fall in love
You fall in love with everything, with everyone
Then you look at the world through a new pair of eyes
And you see fear it crawls but love it flies

So fly with it, fly with it
Grow a pair of wings and soar up high
This bird it sings a lullaby
Close your eyes, now go asleep
And dream a dream of falling deep in love...

Let me fall in love, fall in love
Let me fall in love, fall in love...

For Old Times Sake

Hold me tight, but just for tonight
And not as tight as before
We're not that close anymore
At least not in that way
We've drifted further apart with each day

We have waited it out just to see
If we could love one another casually
But I've been a good friend to you
I've always been there for you

You say you don't know
Where did the people we used to be go
You say you don't understand
What ever made me let go of your hand
But you never asked me to stay
And If you wanted me to, you did not say
Now for old times sake
Go ahead and repeat that mistake
'Cause the moment is past now
I've stopped counting the days somehow
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Let it be what it is
Though we never intended for it to turn into this
We had something good, it did not last
Let's not be constantly re-living the past
I have nothing but love for you
Though you've often questioned how that could be true
Well you better start believing me
If you ever wish to see yourself free
From this long and drawn-out process of letting go
All this grief and regret has kept your spirit low

Now You Know

I don't know what it is you did to me
I don't know what it was you said
That made me think for the very first time
That I'd give everything I had
In exchange for one night with you

Where I'd put my head, I haven't a clue
I don't know how to say this, how to even begin
But I'll try and explain the state I'm in
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
When you talk to me I can't focus on what you're saying
'Cause my mind gets lost in the movement of your lips
And the color of your eyes, and the gesturing of your hands
Those lovely hands

And I want to move my lips
Right close to your ear
And whisper things that only you are meant to hear
I'm falling for you, what a stupid thing to do
But there you go, at least now you know that I want you

Muna

Point of Creation

Take me to the point of my creation
Take me where my life began
I was born into this world
What had I intended then
What had I chosen for a destiny
Am I living it right now
I have this feeling I've forgotten something
Tell me, how do I know that I am where I'm supposed to be
Talk to me, God
I know you're listening to me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Open up your eyes, look to the sky
You'll see a rainbow
That's the bridge you crossed
On your way to your new life
Breathe in, breathe out
Let the color rays pass through you
Red, orange, yellow, green
Turquoise, indigo, purple
Now do you see where your home is
Do you remember who you are
Life's longing for itself
Your wish made upon a star

Time Immemorial

Wounded soldier, rest a while
In this house you're safe from harm
Let the war fight itself
Don't be alarmed
Though I wear a uniform of your army's enemy
I am no enemy to you

We didn't start this war, or the one before
All we've ever wanted was to live in peace

War is the mindset of those threatened by the thought
Of losing power, and control, don't you see
We have been our worst enemy
But you and I have minds of our own
We can choose to disengage
From the collective misperception
Of the kind of war that's being waged here
We're living in fear
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Life, like the stream running through
The many hills and plaines of landscape you
To meet the greater body of the sea
There, not diminished but built upon
It returns itself to where it came from
So can it be with you and me

We are the heart and soul of our greater whole
All we've ever wanted was to come home to ourselves

Since time immemorial there's been conflict and war
Each new one greater than the one before
Don't you see we have been our sole enemy
But you and I can break the circle
We don't have to feed the flames
Pointing fingers, blaming others
We are all to blame around here
For living in fear

The Leading Bird

Clouds descend on grass grown wild
Tall and grand, lush in hand
They bend in air as man in prayer
I'm weaving through, trying to get to you

I'm running past birds of dawn
They sing like heaven, they're leading on
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Yet I don't see slow motioned wings
Like gold in sun, how it could be won
White as snow silk-feathered doves
Eternal glow, they easily know

That life is grand in all its shapes
Whether it gives, whether it takes
That I am you, you are me, and
Loving grace can set us free
From sprinting far, above, beyond
Being our own strong magic wand

Fortune Teller

Close your eyes and think of the future
Picture yourself, now what do you see
One year from now, two ten or twenty
Tell me, tell me! What would you like to be

A fortune teller, a treasure hunter
A world explorer, a heaven seeker
Or is being yourself satisfying enough
Maybe all you dream of finding is
One True Love
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Guardian of a secret, temple fire keeper
A truth protector, a dream collector
Or is simply being yourself satisfying enough
Maybe all you dream of keeping is
One True Love

Find a fruitful branch to shake,
Careful not to make it break.
Find a piece of land to rake,
Spread your seeds and see them take

Without A Map

God, I've been sent here blind to learn to see
Remembering you were always there with me
But do you know just how hard that's been
Could all of this have really been foreseen
I'd like to say a prayer, how does it go
I'm tired. Tell me, God, does it show
What could have called for such a handicap
I was sent out here without a map
All this time I've had to guess the way
To keep moving when I wished to stay
I've been wrong as much as I've been right
You tell me: "Walk by faith and not by sight, and
Keep your heavy heart afloat
You are a timber carved by knife, but
Someday you may serve as a boat"
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
What I lose here on earth
Is lost in heaven
If I ask you for help
It will be given
But you've waited this long
You weren't ready
My devotion was strong
It wasn't steady
I have one more question
You have the answer too
But what does that mean
You're I, and I am you
Why speak in riddles
Then let me show the way
That's all I've wanted
That's all you've had to say

Well come on then, God, show me
Which way you would like me to go, and
I won't resume to question
How I was ever supposed to know
There have been signs along the way, but
They've been so very obscure
At times I thought I knew their meaning, but
How could I've ever been sure

God, I was sent here deaf to learn to hear
To have faith in you and never fear
Life is an ocean, you its every wave
Your arms would cradle me, and keep me safe
You're right, all this, and more I need to learn
All this unease just makes my stomach churn
It was I not you who set this trap, but
You did leave me here without a map
All this time I've had to guess the way
To keep moving when I wished to stay
I've been right as much as I've been wrong, so
All I hear from you is: "You are strong enough
For all you'll ever have to face
The only map you need is Love
To guide you through this illusion of a maze"

Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On east, as it is in heaven
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us, Father, all our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us, and
Lead us not into temptation, but
Deliver us from evil, for thy is the kingdom, and
The power, and the glory
Now and forever more
Amen

Remember Who You Are

Tell me why you hide from me
Or am I blinded by the expectation
Of what I'll see
How do you expect nothing, but
Stay open to everything
I've been trying to keep an open mind, but
Listen! Why do you make yourself so hard to find
I've been looking for you left and right
Tell me! Have I even so much as glimpsed a sight
Well it's not just a matter of curiosity
Your existence is what makes or breaks this world to me
Because if you're not real, how do I know what is
Maybe I'm just imagining all of this

I take whatever form you picture me in, but
You can not see what you don't believe in
You're always looking for proof
Your faith is like a house that has no roof
The howling winds of doubt, they sweep right through
You've forgotten everything that you once knew
All you need is to remember who you are
Then you will see that I am never far from you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You need not fear, we're always here
If you only knew who walks with you
You'd never feel alone, scared of the unknown
You would stand up straight, and comfort the afraid

Mary

Oh Father, what do you see
Are you well pleased in me
I always longed to be
Worthy of the faith you put in me, and
It would make me sad if I should let you down
I only wish to make you proud, but
I'd really like to play with the children now
Am I allowed
For a moment to go out

Mary, still a little girl now
Mary, play as much as you can
Mary, you already know how
To play the hearts of men, like a harp

You're still so young
You have so much ahead of you
Big things await you still
Oh, if you only knew, but
Maybe it is better that you don't
While you're sleeping undisturbed by anything
It's still so early in the morning
Only cowbells ring
Soon the birds will start to sing
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Mary, you're growing up now
Mary, soon your time will come
Mary, you already know how
To make sound the hearts of men like a drum, beating

Phoenix

You told me all creation starts
Within the darkness of a womb
Comparing flowers to enlightened minds, and
Therefore loving to see them bloom

As I had loved to see your joy, and
Sought out a meadow to pick this living light, but
Then I turned up at your door, and
Found I'd only been stealing in the night

When you said: "Don't give me flowers to put in a vase
They're beautiful, I know, but they are dying
Unlike the love that they were given to proclaim
We'll plant an oak tree in our garden
To better stand the test of time
Please don't kill no flowers in my name
Don't kill flowers in my name"
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Well then I thought of life and death, and
The impermanence of all there is, and
Grew unsure of how you knew
Our love could never feel the deathly kiss of time

When you said: “Love is like a phoenix, never to truly die
For it rises from its own ashes to be born anew
Yeah, it is so if the love is true, but
If it's lost to you and I, it is lost to the world, and
It will truly feel as though each star has ceased to shine for good
Our love it lives on as it should
Our love lives on as it should

Seasons Change

Open your door, come on outside
It's raining, but still, that's no reason to hide
Put on your coat, we can still play
Or go for a walk, rain as it may
‘Cause if you love life, it will keep you warm
In all weather, even rain and storm

We learn that spring sends the winter away
So when the summer comes 'round, we beg spring to stay, but
In all these years past, why didn't we learn
That we'd be better of pleading with whomever make the earth turn
‘Cause seasons change, they go as quick as they came, and
It's not their fault, if we choose to stay the same, and
Not grow at all, neither strong, nor tall
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But if you ever want to play a game with me
To run around the woods, and climb the tallest tree
To make ourselves a couple kites, and see them fly
We can reach out to a cloud to try and touch the sky

Gabriel

Behold a bed of golden sand
Upon it lies a sea of empty shells
The dream of life on earth dissolving fast
Like a world painted in aquarelles

Yet in this a time there's no room for despair, for
There's more to this than what meets the eye
Dispute no more over right and wrong, for
The song of hope is but a single cry
A prayer for the right to be loved
Despite all our prior sins
No one shall cast a stone now, for
If the song is dead, nobody wins

Who is this
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You call me Gabriel
I'm a rider on a white horse
The tide is rising now
Make haste and set your course
Don't wait for the break of dawn, for
The sun isn't gonna rise today, but
Don't worry, all is well
In its place the moon will light the way
And from the morrow till the end of time
Both the sun and moon alike will reign
It is by the hand of man, not the will of God
That any lamb was ever slain
But for the love of life and a life of love
Let there be no blood shed tonight
The only way to win this coming trial
Is to yield your arms, and put up no fight

This Right Here

Anything that I could say right now
Would only be a pale reflection of what I feel
Won't you let me just look at you
Our eyes are the windows to our souls, and
They will show one another all there is to know
About the things that I'd like you to understand
Hold my hand and listen with your skin
Let your inner senses take me in, and
We will go beyond words
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Like a wish that's remained concealed
Like a wound that has never healed
Int he secret language of the heart
I summoned you to me
As the missing part of my life's design
Your destiny's linked with mine
As I light these candles for you, and
Your unspoken wish coming true, but
The present is the gift
Yeah, this right here
This right here
