While the name New Buffalo may ring a bell with some as a town on the shores of Lake Michigan ("modern, but quaint" is how its inhabitants describe themselves online), on the other side of the world there exists another New Buffalo, also modern yet similarly possessing an otherworldly, at times old-school charm. New Buffalo is singer / songwriter / performer Sally Seltmann, who lives and records in Melbourne, Australia. Sally's New Buffalo is a world of heavy-lidded, sweet melancholy, capturing lyrics from the ebb and flow of the everyday (dream) and setting them to a musical kaleidoscope of beats, sounds and instruments. New Buffalo first came to prominence through 2001ís About Last Night, an EP produced by Sally with her husband Darren Seltmann (The Avalanches). About Last Night was released in Australia through Modular and the U.K. on Heavenly, taking critics by storm with its woozily woven, freewheeling charm. Features appeared in the likes of NME, Uncut and i-D Magazine, and at the end of 2001 Sally carried out a U.K. tour opening for Ed Harcourt. About Last Night revealed Sally's burgeoning talent: the EPís five tracks were deceptively simple, but upon repeated listening revealed many shades of light and darkness. The clear tone of Sally's voice proved the perfect foil to the skittering of crackling, orchestral phrases and vintage organs.

In 2002 Sally traveled to Los Angeles to work on tracks towards her debut album with producer/programmer Jake Davies (Madonna/Bjork). It was upon returning to Melbourne that Sally realized she wanted to make her own way musically, and scrapping the sessions, set up her own home studio, The Lonely Studio. It was at The Lonely Studio that Sally wrote, arranged and produced The Last Beautiful Day. The process took its time, with Sally playing almost all the parts herself Ė guitar, bass, piano, keys and programming. Occasionally she would be joined in the studio by visiting musicians: whilst touring Australia Beth Orton came by to lend her laid-back vocals to the track ďInsideĒ; the Dirty Threeís Jim White plays drums on three tracks on the album. The result is quite unlike anything else you will hear this year. As delightful and unexpected as snowfall in summer, The Last Beautiful Day is refreshing in its naÔve charms and fascinating in its sonic construction. Sallyís lyrics lift vaguely blue moods out of the everyday to create a half-awake, half-asleep wonderland wordplay, full of keys, puzzles and mysteries; swimming pools, rivers, shores and stages, where people are lost and found, and wrongs are sometimes put right. Sally wins you over with her quiet struggle between the hopeful assimilation of the inside and the outside. Musically, The Last Beautiful Day is willfully obtuse Ė owing as much to the music of Marilyn Monroe as it does to My Bloody Valentine. Throughout it remains immediate and unclassifiable, with drunken strings and farfisa stabs set against the tap of dancing shoes, the sound of machinery come to life, the clockwork whir of broken records and intermittent flourishes of dance hall brass and woodwind. Like the long light of the afternoon reaching out its golden rays to the shore, The Last Beautiful Day is the sound of a sweet goodbye, as much as it is the promise of a new day.

The Last Beautiful Day

Recovery

Time for beer
Checkered cheer
Now you're here
I can see so clearly
No more question marks
Sympathy cards
It's in the stars
Troubled times are clearing

Now it's recovery
Looks like it's gonna be
Okay
It's a new day
Recovery
Looks like it's gonna be
Okay
It's a new day

I was wrong
You were right
Gotta stop
Feeling like it's never ending
We could go
Check out the show
Happiness
It's the sound of how you're feeling

Recovery
Looks like it's gonna be
Okay
It's a new day
Recovery
Looks like it's gonna be
Okay
It's a new day

Look into my eyes
And you will wee what you want to find
You can paint the picture of your fever
Just to get it off your mind

It's a new day
It's a new day
It's a new day
It's a new day

Recovery (It's a new day)
Looks like it's gonna be (It's a new day)
Okay (It's a new day)

Recovery (It's a new day)
Looks like it's gonna be (It's a new day)

I've Got You and You've Got Me

I wanted it so bad
Making all the props
Sitting on my swing
Giving all I've got
But when they dim the lights
Forgetting my stage fright
I find that little smile
Cause I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me

I light his cigarette
Acting with regret
Saying all my lines
Pretending things are fine
But when the curtains close
Everybody knows
I climb into the space
Where I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me

What happens when I say
"This may be the last beautiful day"

I'm dancing in my sleep
With promises I'll keep
Feeling so complete
Cause I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me

I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me
I've got you and you've got me
Everybody knows, everybody knows
I've got you and you've got me
Everybody knows, everybody knows
I've got you and you've got me
Everybody knows
I've got you and you've got me

No Party

Ohhh, ahhh...

Caught me in a rush
I hate myself for this
Longing to lay down beside you
And tell you how it is
My scarf is folded clean
Shoes beside my bed
Movies and then smiling
All these ideas in my head ooh

Ohhh, ahhh...

Ideas on belief
These are ideas we can share
Stroll accross the party floor
You've spoiled it all
You've spoiled it all

All the colours in my mind
Patterns in my eyes
Your the one who made me come alive
And after spoiling all my cheer
I realise why I'm here
You're the one who made me come alive

Ohhh, ahhh...

It'll be Alright

This time
It's not about you
So tired
But what can you do
Last night
I wanted to say
Move on
And look on the brighter side

But your eyes
Never seem to open
There's a whole world outside
See I'm trying to tell you
It'll be alright

Did not
Think you leave it this long
Work hard
Or maybe you've got nothing to say
Please call
I'm begging you to
Forgot
I never got back to you

And your eyes
Never seem to open
There's a whole world outside
See I'm trying to tell you
It'll be alright

And when your all alone
You catch your breath
You save yourself
You save yourself
It's easy
If you'd only try
It's easy

But your eyes
Never seem to open
There's a whole world outside
See I'm trying to tell you
It'll be alright

I thought you'd call
I thought you'd change
But why expect
Oh so much from your friends

I know who you are
And you know who I am
Is that not enough

Time To Go To Sleep

Time to go to sleep
Just lay back (just lay back)
And relax

Time to close your eyes
Just lay back (just lay back)
And relax

On the seventh floor
I can see it, it's a swimming pool
But it looks like a river
Saturday, what a day
I'm not lonely
But I'm
All alone
I'm trying to go to sleep
But I can't go to sleep
I lie awake with
Coloured lights and ideas
Stacked up high
Where's the diamond in my
Messy mind

Underneath the streetlight
You see who I am
It lights up the patterns and games
And incomplete sounds and new names
Saturday, what a day
I'm not lonely
But I'm
All alone
I'm trying to go to sleep
But I can't go to sleep
I lie awake with
Coloured lights and ideas
Stacked up high
Where's the diamond in my
Messy mind

I'm trying to go to sleep
I lie awake with
Coloured lights and ideas
Stacked up high
Where's the diamond in my
Messy mind
Coloured lights and ideas
Stacked up high
Where's the diamond in my
Messy mind

Yes

I know what you like best
Yes
Yes

Yes I get the feeling that
You're tired of all my moody ways
I'm tired of living moody days
Yes

One more breath and I will become
A river that is deep and still
I'd wait here all night until
You said yes
Yes
Yes

Washed out fears
With midnight tears

There's washed out fears
A little sleep will brush away
With midnight tears
The fingerprints I found today
There's washed out fears
And I'm not going far away
With midnight tears
In just eight weeks I'll solve the case

And I'll be in your car and driving
Straight through a red light
While you're running through my mind
Arrest me and say yes

Will you hang the trophy in the cabinet
You are yet to build
You withstood the stormy nights so well

Is this a dream
Yes it is
Is this a dream
Yes it is

Inside

Gotta get away so I can write some more
TV on and record playing, what's it for
Career move is watching you travel far

Watch a building being built, the pieces are
Replacing what's missing inside your heart
In the distance dying on your bedroom floor
Playing songs I used to know

Gonna get my things and take them down
Gotta find a friend and move around
I'm not satisfied with staying here
Playing what seems pretty clear
I'm gonna get my things and take them down (It's alright)
Gotta find a friend and move around
I'm not satisfied with staying here (Here we are)
Playing what seems pretty clear
I'm gonna get my things and take them down (Inside)
Gotta find a friend and move around
I'm not satisfied with staying here
Playing what seems pretty clear

Sending letters back and forth
What can we do
Here's a mountain and a heartbeat
Just for you
Situation tells me that we're going to
Even if we have to pay

Gonna get my things and take them down
Gotta find a friend and move around
I'm not satisfied with staying here
Playing what seems pretty clear

It's alright
Here we are
Inside

It's alright (It's alright)
Here we are (Here we are)
Inside (We're inside)
(We're alright)

It's alright
Here we are
We're inside
We're alright

It's alright (It's alright)
Here we are (Here we are)
Inside (We're inside)
(We're alright)

It's alright (It's alright)
Here we are (Here we are)
Inside (We're inside)
(We're alright)

Come Back

When dark as night
I saw the light
It shone with more
Desire than
I'd seen before
The leaves begin to fall
I smell the air
And hear a voice saying
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

It's time to lie
Down on the shore
Where you once cried
For more, for more
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

It's true
It's true
I've been avoiding you
When all you gave to me
Was so pure and so complete
The sounds that lull to sleep
The flickering of the lights
The water so deep
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

It's time to lie
Down on the shore
Where you once cried
For more, for more
Come back
Come back
I need you now
Come back
Come back
I need you now

While You're Away

I've got plans to take you down
Privately we'll make a time
Taking notes and making charts
One machine to map the heart

Silver lining in your mind
Look inside but never find
Hanging pictures on the wall
While you're thinking how you left all

While you're away
With stars in your eyes
The infection is so close to the heart
Give me some time
It's all that I need
You lie beside your dreams in the dark

Please pick up the phone
I picture you asleep
And you're alone
You're listening to the sound
Of your inside
It's never been so sweet or so alive

While you're away
With stars in your eyes
The infection is so close to the heart
Give me some time
It's all that I need
You lie beside your dreams in the dark

Give me some time
It's all that I need
Give me some time
It's all I need

Give me some time
It's all that I need
Give me some time
It's all that I need
Give me some time
It's all that I need
Give me some time
It's all that I need

On Sunday

Director gets in
And changes the lighting
Shooting the scene they begin
Four minutes on
The romance is blooming
Preparing the costume she grins

How about we have a little action
The writer wants some more
He's gonna get some
Yes tonight's the night you're gonna want more
She's the one who's got nothing to cry for

So give up, give in
And tell them the story
Look down and shine from above
Holding his hand
She's singing to herself
I've got a ticket to love

How about we have a little action
The writer wants some more
He's gonna get some
Yes tonight's the night you're gonna want more
She's the one who's got nothing to cry for
She's the one who's got nothing to cry for

Somewhere, anywhere

Cheer me up thank you

So it goes
The ordinary people they do not know
Who we are
Or what we're doing here
I want you to pick up the phone
And hum the dial tone
You see we should start
From the top
And look at what we've got

Wild flowers growing in the park
Summertime when it melts into dark
Dancing together at night until two
You're cheering me up and Iím thanking you

It's true

Five o'clock, there's coffee cups
And magazines, you're breaking up
I hold the phone right to my ear
I'm sick of saying "I wish you were here"

I got myself into this mess
I chose to wear this stupid dress
My memory's no good for me
There's one place where I want to be

You are, you are, you are, you are
It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true
You are, you are, you are, you are
It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true

One million people with one idea
To get the hell right out of here
You've packed your car, you've packed your brain
With things to lose, and things to gain

I see you now you're sitting there
With crumpled dreams and messed up hair
It's black and blue, it's black and white
It's exactly what I want tonight

You are, you are, you are, you are
It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true
You are, you are, you are, you are
It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true

You are, you are, you are, you are
It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true
You are, you are, you are, you are
It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true

City and sea (lady nameless)

Half in love with this
Half in love with that
Nothing but a change of heart
To set you back

Apples on a tree
Babies on your knee
Taxis in your dreams are screaming
"Wait for me!"

City and sea
Light versus tree
Mapping out the stars inside your brain
Completely different
But the same sort of sound
More easily found
This is what I wanted from the start
The day is light the night is dark

Wires over streets
Birds are building beats
Time and space are washing with your dirty sheets
Buried underground
Look at what we found
Resting and suggesting that we're homeward bound

City and sea
Light versus tree
Mapping out the stars inside your brain
Completely different
But the same sort of sound
More easily found
This is what I wanted from the start
The day is light the night is dark

Oh to be five
Happy and alive
Driving from the city to the countryside
Sameness in the same
Fighting is the game
Nameless is the lady who has gone insane

City and sea
Light versus tree
Mapping out the stars inside your brain
Completely different
But the same sort of sound
More easily found
This is what I wanted from the start
The day is light the night is dark

This is what I wanted
What I wanted from the start
The day is light the night is dark
It's light the night is dark

Stay with us

Oh, you can feel
Tiny hearts
Beating out of time
And you wish
You were a man
But you're walking softly slowly
With a bun in the oven
And a candle in your hand

Stay with us a while
Stay with us a while
Stay with us a while
Stay with us a while

They're calling your name
But it's true
You never were to blame
And inside
You are a rock
But you're fading like a flower
With your hands in your pockets
And a tear drop in your eye

Stay with us a while
Stay with us a while
Stay with us a while
Stay with us a while

Emotional champ

We are one, we are
Two people inside one body
Our own disgrace
Emotional champ so sorry

No sleep tonight
Only sweet reminders
Say keep tonight
Cause it's all I wanna
Do

Shaping signs from nothing
We are done we are
Forgetting this means everything

No sleep tonight
Only sweet reminders
Say keep tonight cause it's all I wanna
Do

All I wanna do
Eemotional champ so sorry
All I wanna do
Emotional champ so sorry

You've gone my friend

You've gone my friend
You've gone to start your life again
You read the book
It told you how
To begin
And how to end
You've gone my friend
You've gone my friend
You've gone

You board the ship
The water laps against the sides
Reminds you of
When you were a child
You rowed the boat to mystery
And walked through trails
Where all the trees
Had faces
You wrapped your arms around
And felt the breeze
You've gone my friend
You've gone to start your life again
You read the book
It told you how
To begin
And how to end
You've gone my friend
You've gone my friend
You've gone

The ropes are tied
The shapes lay hard
Against your side
Forgive me for this
Empty ride
I gave to give
And not to hide
You've gone my friend
You've gone

You've gone my friend
You've gone to start your life again
You read the book
It told you how
To begin
And how to end
You've gone my friend

You've gone my friend
You've gone

You've gone my friend
You've gone

You've gone my friend
You've gone

Versary

Yes I knew her name
It was written in the sky
She was wearing what I liked
The colour caught my eye

Later on that night
With my mattress in the light
Got a ticket and a fright
I brought this on myself tonight

I was afraid to sleep
I knew when I caught my eye
She'd be dancing on the rooftops
Chasing some other guy

Diamonds in her pockets
When she jumps
Her dress is torn
Here she is beside me
Stretched out on the lawn

Grow up, yeah smile
This is here
This is now
You'll have tears
In your eyes
For a while
For a while

Her house is different
That's because she cares
What's hanging from the stereo
She made with her own hands
Pictures on her walls
Remind her what she's living for
Da da da da da...

Grow up, yeah smile
This is here
This is now
You'll have tears
In your eyes
For a while
For a while

I'm the drunk and you're the star

It all comes down
It all comes down
It all comes down
To what you do
To what you learn
To what you say
To what you earn
To what you shake
To what you make
You cried your eyes out when I was gone
You want to truth
Well here you are
I'm the drunk and you're the star
You cried your eyes out when I was gone
So much happiness in
Longing for what you love
Longing for what you were
And what you could be

It all comes down
It all comes down
It all comes down
To how you care
To how you share
For what you say
For when you're there
To what you make
To what you shake
You cried your eyes out when I was gone
You want to truth
Well here you are
I'm the drunk and you're the star
You cried your eyes out when I was gone
So much happiness in
Longing for what you love
Longing for what you were
And what you could be

Oh you're longing for what you love
Longing for what you were
You've longing for what you want
To be

It's got to be jean

It's got to be jean
She's run away
Through yellow coloured fields
Forever and a day

Lying on her back
Watching the clouds
Singing little songs
For hours and hours

It's got to be jean
She's driving in her car
Smiling to herself
She's come so far

Making little books
With pictures of friends
Hoping this will never end

Once in a blue moon
She tells me the secret
Code to the back room
There's not point in keeping
Seasons from changing
Decor from aging
I'm loving this feeling
I'm loving this feeling!

It's gotta be jean
It's gotta be jean
It's gotta be jean
It's gotta be jean

It's got to be jean
She's run away
Through yellow coloured fields
Forever and a day

Lying on her back
Watching the clouds
Singing little songs
For hours and hours

Once in a blue moon
She tells me the secret
Code to the back room
There's not point in keeping
Seasons from changing
Decor from aging
I'm loving this feeling
I'm loving this feeling

It's gotta be jean
It's gotta be jean
It's gotta be jean
It's gotta be jean

Misery and mountains, arrows and bows

My body's broken, Iím not ashamed
Dangerous token, guilty with pain
Tell them my story, again and again
Bring me my sweetheart
I wanna
See him

Everyone has their own divine
Campfire comfort, prayers with wine
Is this my weakness
Do I care
I need a partner
I need someone
There

Gifted and blessed, seeds you can sow
Misery and mountains, arrows and bows
Masculine memories, feminine rain
Bring me my sweetheart
I wanna see him
Again

Misery and mountains
Arrows and bows

Misery and mountains
Arrows
And
Bows

Heart That's Pounding

Harmony to My Heartbeat

Dreams that come and go
This is one that I found forever I know
Been crossing my fingers
And always hoping for it to come true

Waiting for the train
I can see a face in the distance again
Got a little dream
That's become a friend and a reality

And I'm running just as fast as I can
To tell you the news
We can do this together
We can, yeah me and you
When you hold me I can see
This is exactly where I wanna be
You're the harmony to my heartbeat, baby

Dreams that come and go
But I just kept doing what I loved, even though
All I ever wished for was out of breath, running so slow

I found the lock and the key
Now I can be everything I've wanted to be
Got a little dream
That's become a friend for the melody

And I'm running just as fast as I can to tell you the news
We can do this together, we can, yeah me and you
When you hold me I can see
This is exactly where I wanna be
You're the harmony to my heartbeat, baby
Harmony to my heartbeat, baby
Harmony to my heartbeat, baby

When you hold me I can see
This is exactly where I wanna be
You're the harmony to my heartbeat, baby

Harmony to my heartbeat, baby
You're the harmony to my heartbeat baby
Harmony to my heartbeat, baby
You're the harmony to my heartbeat baby

Harmony to my heartbeat, baby
You're the harmony to my heartbeat baby
Harmony to my heartbeat, baby
You're the harmony to my heartbeat baby

Harmony to my heartbeat, baby
You're the harmony to my heartbeat

When you hold me I can see
This is exactly where I wanna be
You're the harmony to my heartbeat, baby

On The Borderline

Remember when you told me in the morning
You said I was tough
Tougher than the average woman
But I guess that is not tough enough

'Cause when you left me on the weekend
I was crumbling
At the roots and the stem
Like a flower dying in the garden

Now you're gone
I have to strengthen up my little heart
Find my own way, light my torch
And sparkle my own spark

When I wake up in the morning I feel very numb
But I'm gonna get through
I'm gonna tell myself every day

Get yourself up, get yourself up
Get yourself out of bed
This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day today

Snapping your fingers
Tapping your toes
You are humming a tune
You know, you know
This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day today

On the borderline from what is right to what is wrong
There I am and there I try, I try to carry on
And when I'm standing on a mountain I feel brave and strong
Yeah I'm gonna get through with or without you

Get yourself up, get yourself up
Get yourself out of bed
This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day today

Snapping your fingers
Tapping your toes
You are humming a tune
You know, you know
This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day today

I'm gonna change, I'm gonna change, I'm gonna change
Just the way I see myself today
I'm gonna change, I'm gonna change
But there's gotta be an easier way
An easier way to start the day

Get yourself up, get yourself up
Get yourself out of bed
This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day today

Snapping your fingers
Tapping your toes
You are humming a tune
You know, you know
This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day today

Snapping your fingers
Tapping your toes
You are humming a tune
You know, you know
This is a new day
This is a new day
This is a new day today...

Book Song

Is this me
Iíll say it to myself so you donít think that Iím crazy
This club is soulless and I think that I would rather be
Writing the pages of a book that youíll read quietly
Inside your house all by yourself, thatís where I want to be

Rock and roll
I never aimed to own the stage or to sell my soul
Iíd rather write a book with characters whose lives unfold
And bring you coffee in the morning when outside itís cold
While you read the first draft all you say is Ďthis is goldí

In a dream
Thatís where I am until I find the literary stream
And then Iíll swim to save my life
And write a book about your wife
And how she sits inside her house all day and writes and writes
The pages bound, the crowd applauding at the writerís fair

Each person takes a copy home to bed and
Holds it there
Holds it there
Holds it there

Dream About Changing

Feel magician itís late outside to fake my own dreams
I'm lying in the back of a smashed up car
With a drum and a guitar beside me

The car radio is on, what is this song
I try to sing along but cannot keep up with the words
I close my eyes and dream about changing

I'm sailing a ship on a lake that never runs dry
Something inside in the car tell I'm a little I'm a little bit shy

Cath comes running with a book in her hand
I open to the first page it says 'yes you can'
Get over your shy and the visions if you try to
She says follow me down to the lake
And take all your troubles and your worries and you shake shake shake
Them out into the deep blue water

I'm sailing a ship on a lake that never runs dry
Something inside in the car tell I'm a little I'm a little bit shy

I'm a little bit shy
I'm a little bit shy
I'm a little bit shy

Surprise, surprise you're standing in the movie
So the sun in your eyes I woke up to your own sick and we talk about it
Yes, you say you'd like to
You whisper something in my ear
It is a code or a message and it all becomes so clear
I close my eyes and dream about changing

I'm sailing a ship on a lake that never runs dry
Something inside in the car tell I'm a little I'm a little bit shy

I'm sailing a ship on a lake that never runs dry
Something inside in the car tell I'm a little I'm a little bit shy

I'm a little bit shy
I'm a little bit shy
I'm a little bit shy

Heart That's Pounding

Trouble in sight
I am not like all the other girls
That you saw last night
Louder when I said it before
You can save my life if you give me more

I had a shot at what I thought
Was the best day of my life now it's gonna end
Yellow and blue the target was see through
Fortune tellers said, I told you

I wanna see a heart that's pounding
I wanna hear a beat that's sounding
Bigger than a leap that's bounding
I was lost but now you found me
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
There is a world to fix
A tape to mix
A mind to mend
A soul to bend
A start to end

Fish to feed
Some dope to need
A girl to be a boy
To see I'm loving nothing

I wanna see a heart that's pounding
I wanna hear a beat that's sounding
Bigger than a leap that's bounding
I was lost but now you found me

What's the use of loving
If you're not loving
Like you think you're gonna die
If you don't see a loved one

Without you for just ten days
Well I feel like I'm gonna die

While I lie in bed at night
I can feel my heart inside
I can hear it in my head
I can feel in in my fingertips
There's no way I can hide this desperation

I wanna see a heart that's pounding
I wanna hear a beat that's sounding
Bigger than a leap that's bounding
I was lost but now you found me

I wanna see a heart that's pounding
I wanna hear a beat that's sounding
Bigger than a leap that's bounding
I was lost but now you found me...

I Tossed A Coin

I wear my heart on my sleeve
I used to lose it on the breeze
But this lucky charm has served me well
I tossed a coin, you broke the spell

If it's love that we're talking about
Then I'm with you
If it's what's here inside of this house
Beside the lovely view
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I feel like I'm starting to change
But I'm still here
I can tell that you love me the same
When you hold me in your arms

I know I tend to disagree
I am the fire and you're the sea
But I'm holding on, I'm holding tight
I'm so in love with you tonight

And if you knew just how much you mean to me, oh yeah
Wea re two people drifting down stream without any cares
And I feel like I'm starting to change
But I'm still here
I can tell that you love me the same
When you hold me in your arms

The Truth

Sun is shining
I'm not trying to be what you want me to be
Yes I'm lying cause I'm shy
And I do not want you to see my thoughts
Because they're tangled in a web
Yeah you heard what I said

There's music in the background
And now rain falls on the roof
I'm trying to be polite
But I think I should give you the truth

Sitting at the table
Staring at you while you stare at me
Making idle chit-chat
While the night moves on

You know that it takes two of us
To open up our hearts
To understand the parts
That seem so secretive
That seem so distant and aloof
I'm trying to be polite
But I think I should give you the truth

It always ends this way
I always want to say
In an ideal world you'd tell me why
You cannot sleep at night
In an ideal world you'd come to me
And you would hold me tight

Friday night this dinner party
Seems to be going quite well
If I just mind my business
Then I will look like a normal hostess

But I just want to see inside your mind
Show yours and I'll show mine
There's music in the background
And now rain falls on the roof
I'm trying to be polite
But I think I should give you the truth
 

Sentimental Seeker

When I'm sad and lonely
Hanging by a string
The puppeteer who holds me
Teaches me to sing

Whispering beside me
Above a dark ocean
Casting up my fears like a poison potion

Shadow of a soldier
I'm looking for a keeper
I want a new adventure
With a sentimental seeker

Putting hands wouldn't fit
I will never grow
Sitting here inside the window
Waiting to be sold

But when you came inside the store
And held me in your arms
I came to life, I fell in love
You want me with your ??
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Shadow of a soldier
I think I've found the keeper
I'm on a new adventure
With a sentimental seeker

Sentimental seeker
Sentimental seeker
Sentimental seeker
Sentimental seeker

It's getting deeper
And I'm out of my doubts
I'm losing my breath
I'm losing my breath

You showed me something
I would never forget
I'll never regret
The chill of the night
The diamond in the sky
And the cherry in the pie
Oh things are getting better

Sentimental seeker
Sentimental seeker
Sentimental seeker
Sentimental seeker

5 Stars

When I was young I had an easy life
A good sense of wrong and right
I had a family home and a mother and father who cared
But when I see such a loveless face, falling from grace
It breaks my heart and it makes me think that life isn't fair

Good night and good luck to you
I'll raise my glass to the concept of understanding who I am
And how this can make a difference to the world
So complex, each boy, each girl
Five stars for asking a question
And walking away from it all
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
When I saw the mug shots I found such a sad man
Killing with his right hand
The same hand that held the child he had
With a woman he never knew

Our credit cards are ??? to the top
We start but never stop
It is a sign of the times
When the people collectively feel
Everything's empty, nobody is satisfied
Just look up to the sky
Trust me, there's comfort in knowing
The ceiling is endless enough

Everything you are means nothing to anyone
So simple, the moon, the sun
The process of learning that someone
Thinks differently to you

Good night and good luck to you
I'll raise my glass to the concept of understanding who I am
And how this can make a difference to the world
So complex, each boy, each girl
Five stars for asking a question
And walking away from it all

Dark Blue Angel

Today I saw a dark blue angel
Sitting high upon a swing
She looked at me and said I want you
But I will never let her in

A boy is on a ferris wheel
His hands are held up in the air
Screaming 'cause he's happy
And the dark blue angel is not there

Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in

Kissing on a rainy day
There's raindrops on the roses
And inside her heart she knows it
Yes, the dark blue angel's fly away
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in

Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never
No I will never
I will never let you in
No I will never let you in again

Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in

Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in

Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in

Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in
Goodbye dark blue angel
I will never let you in

Seeker Lover Keeper

Bring Me Back

Sarah Blasko :

Bring me back to where I've been
If you sing that song, it'll take me there
Right back where it all began
But please do hold my trembling hands
Mother I do miss her so
Oh I wish I was a little girl
Still a spark in my father's eyes
But I feel a loss without her smile
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Send me out into the world
I am going there to break a spell
Mother I do have her hands
I will use them well, I promise that
Knowing well what I do now
I will overcome what holds me down

Light All My Lights

Sarah Blasko :

I long for a spark, for a light
A dawn for my long, sleepless nights
And you keep them high on me tonight
And we'll be a light all of our lives

Oh, won't you come
Won't you light all my lights
Oh, won't you come
Won't you fight all my fights
Fight all my fights
So long
And we'll all be so strong
We'll all be so strong

Oh, in the dark we could hide
But we're human
We're human, so we fight
And we can be higher than our hearts
And I'll be a fighter by your side

Oh, won't you come
Won't you light all my lights
Oh, won't you come
Won't you fight all my fights
Fight all my fights
So long
And we'll all be so strong
We'll all be so strong

Oh, won't you come
Won't you light all my lights
Oh, won't you come
Won't you fight all my fights
Fight all my fights
Fight all my fights
Fight all my fights
So long
And we'll all be so strong
We'll all be so strong
We'll all be so strong
We'll all be so strong

Even Though I'm A Woman

Holly Throsby :

Oh oh I
I've got a secret
I think I'm in love with missing you
More than I'm in love with you
That's why I go away all the time
That's why I travel the world and roam free
This time you're leaving me
Oh this is how I feel
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I feel like a travelling salesman
Even though I am a woman
Picking up my bags from the station
Standing there face to face
I'd be lying if I did not say
I love you more when I'm missing you
It's why I am always away
Believe me it's true

Oh oh I
I've got a secret
I think I was born to be in a state of longing
Born to be wanting, wanting
I put it in a letter for you
I love the danger in distance
This time I'm leaving you
Oh this is how I feel

I feel like a travelling salesman
Even though I am a woman
Picking up my bags from the station
Standing there face to face
I'd be lying if I did not say
I love you more when I'm missing you
It's why I am always away
Believe me it's true
Believe me it's true
Believe me it's true

I love the danger in distance
I'd rather be missing you
I love the danger in distance
I'd rather be missing you

I feel like a travelling salesman
Even though I am a woman
Picking up my bags from the station
Standing there face to face
I'd be lying if I did not say
I love you more when I'm missing you
It's why I am always away
Believe me it's true
Believe me it's true
Believe me it's true
Believe me it's true
Believe me it's true

Bridges Burned

Sarah Blasko :

I'm waiting for something
I don't know what it is
I'm putting my boots on
I'm getting ready
The style and the substance
Is in a photograph
I pin it to my heart as a reminder

I've done my time
Paid for my crimes
Some bridges just burn
The world still turns for us
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'm waiting for something
I don't know where it lies
The shadow behind me
Won't hold me back this time
I take a step forward
For every word was said
And hope that it leads me
To better circumstance

I've done my time
Paid for my crimes
Some bridges just burn
The world still turns

'Cause I went the long way but now
I'm coming home
I went the wrong way
But I'm coming back stronger than before

Some bridges just burn
The world still turns

On My Own

Sally Seltmann :

I should be lost without you now
But it's easy on my own
So don't be waiting at your door
For me to come around
I've seen the sights, I've heard the sounds
I knew them as a child
I'm trusting what I knew then now

I'm looking for something
That's been buried underground
For years
And it's so old
That even I don't know if I will recognise it
Anymore, on my own

I should be calling out your name
But I've been that ball and chain
I've set my sights on something new
I can see it closer now
I'm breaking up, I'm wandering far
Take me away from you
There's so much that I've got to do
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I'm looking for something
That's been buried underground
For years
And it's so old
That even I don't know if I will recognise it
Anymore, on my own
On my own

I'm looking for something
That's been buried underground
For years
And it's so old
That even I don't know if I will recognise it
Anymore
I'm searching, I'm waiting, I need time to find out
On my own, on my own, on my own

Rely On Me

Sarah Blasko :

And you know
You always can rely on, 'ly on
What you know of me
You can rely on, 'ly on
When you're gone
I always leave a light on, light on
When you're gone from me
Light on, light on

You know you can rely on
You know you can rely on, 'ly
You know you can rely on me
You can rely on, 'ly, 'y

And you know
You always have been right on, right on
All you long to be is right on, right on
When you're gone

When you're gone from me
Light on, light on

You know you can rely on
You know you can rely on, 'ly
You know you can rely on me
You can rely on, 'ly, 'y

To know you
You know I only want to
To know you

You know you can rely on, 'ly
You know you can rely on me

You know you can rely on
You know you can rely on, 'ly
You know you can rely on me
You can rely on, 'ly...

Theme I

Here we go
One, Two, One, Two, Three

Sarah Blasko :

We exit this world alone
As fragile as we're born
A life just like a moment in time
Too vulnerable you chose to hide
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
It broke your heart to lose someone
As desperate as a loaded gun
You thought that you would learn to survive
To make your way alone in this life

I just want you to know
Wherever you go
It follows like a ghost
The burden's not just your own
If you're a seeker lover keeper

I've waited for this moment to arrive
When you let go to survive
Give it up and take it on
To open up and love someone

Scratch it off reveal new skin
Casting off what you held in
Life is just a moment in time
Too short to run and hide

I just want you to know
Wherever you go
It follows like a ghost
The burden's not just your own
If you're a seeker lover keeper
Seeker lover keeper
Seeker lover keeper
Seeker lover keeper

'Cause I just want you to know
Wherever you go
It follows like a ghost
The burden's not just your own

I just want you to know
How near or far you go
You'll never be alone
Your heart it has a home
If you're a seeker, a lover and a keeper

Every Time

Sally Seltmann :

You used to live so close to me
I could die
Call me up and bring me back to life
Friends far but never gone
I forgot to say that it's been too long, oh
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Late nights and too much time
On my hands I lied
Awake with your song in my head
Give up but never lose out
'Cause I've got you by my side

This is how it should be
This is how it should be
This is how it should
Be, this is how

Every time, every time
I feel you're gone
I get your song in my head
It's my favourite one

Yeah every time, every time
I feel you're gone
I get your song in my head
It's my favourite one

Eyes shut I lay down still next to the speaker
I think about the times we've been together
Friend far but never gone
I forgot to say that it's been too long

This is how it should be
This is how it should be
This is how it should
Be, this is how

Every time, every time
I feel you're gone
I get your song in my head
It's my favourite one

Yeah every time, every time
I feel you're gone
I get your song in my head
It's my favourite one
The one you wrote
When you were away
My favourite song
Reminds me of
You, oh oh oh

This is how it should be
This is how it should be
This is how it should
Be, this is how

Every time, every time
I feel you're gone
I get your song in my head
It's my favourite one

Yeah every time, every time
I feel you're gone
I get your song in my head
It's my favourite one
The one you wrote
My favourite song
Reminds me of you

We Will Know What It Is

Holly Throsby :

Two round little stones on the roof with us
We throw 'em off, perfectly in love
To the old ground below
And I say it's so, 'cause I say it's so
And oh, then we loosen up
We all loosen up with the setting sun
Aglow in our heart of hearts
Which shall beat for us, the club and club
You know what I'm thinking of
And I thought a lot, about the thoughts I've got
As the old wind blows
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And we will know what it is
And we will know what it is

I no longer look in the branches of
A dozen fallen logs
For an answer, love
To my old aching heart
And my aching thoughts of a lover gone
And oh, then we loosen up and start saying stuff
We are saying stuff
Alone, in our common lots
Of "I want, I want, but I don't know what"
And won't till my soul dissolves
When my soul dissolves, like a setting sun
Or a falling stone

And we will know what it is
And we will know what it is

I want, I want, but I don't know what
And won't
I want, I want, but I don't know what
And won't
And we will know what it is
And we will know what it is...

If The Night Is Dark

Sally Seltmann :

Cannot stick to one theme
Cannot stick to one plan
Cannot stick to one man

Always changing my mind
Always searching to find
Something I'll understand

Yeah, I'll travel the seas
I'll get down on my knees
I'll live passionately

I have the world in my hands
Will I break, will I stand strong
Am I gonna see what's out there for me

I might be right
I might be wrong
But I have no regrets
To lean upon

If the night is dark
Then this is my sun
This is my home
This is where I belong
This is where I belong
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Well I'm trying to decide
Should I run, should I hide
Show them tricks and be tamed

Yeah, it's true that I've changed
But I'm also the same
I'm just playing the game

If you lay down beside me
You'll feel that I'm cold
And I'm empty, it's true

See the more I reveal
The more lonely I feel
What was one is now broken
Broken in two

I might be right
I might be wrong
But I have no regrets
To lean upon

If the night is dark
Then this is my sun
This is my home
This is where I belong
This is where I belong
This is where I belong

Going To Sleep

Holly Throsby :

I do believe
That I am going
To sleep
So don't make a din
'Cause I'll be dreaming

That a wind welled up and took my eye out
And the storm took the roof with it

I do believe
That I want you
Around
We make our sounds
We make them out loud

But from a window sill I could be lost to you
From a branch you could be lost to me
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Staring at the ceiling
And how
Trying to keep my feet on the ground

I do believe
That I'm dreaming aloud
When you're around
When we're about town

But from a window sill I could be lost to you
From a branch you could be lost to me

Rest Your Head On My Shoulder

Sarah Blasko :

Rest your head on my shoulder
And I'll take care of your worries
It was you who promised this to me
It was you who offered me courage

In my darkest hour you can hear me
Softly question my travels
When doubt becomes me I'm troubled
And all my fears unravel

So simple when I was younger
But now I question my worth
Though my heart beats strong
There is doubt in my blood, in my bones
Like a song never sung
Like a night without morning
A promise undone

Rest your head on my shoulder
And I'll take care of your worries
It was you who promised this to me
It was you who offered me courage

In my darkest hour you can hear me
Softly question my travels
When doubt becomes me I'm troubled
And all my fears unravel
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Do I seek to find disappointment
Do I write with a sense of shame
Like a bird on the ground
Who has injured its wing
I can no longer sing
I'm just waiting for
Someone to tell me
Again and again and again

Rest your head on my shoulder
And I'll take care of your worries
It was you who promised this to me
It was you who offered me courage

In my darkest hour you can hear me
Softly question my travels
When doubt becomes me I'm troubled
And all my fears unravel

Hey Daydreamer

Hey Daydreamer

Hey daydreamer
I've been away too long
I wanna go back home
Back to where I belong

Morning coffee
I have it on my own
Close my eyes I'll be
All the way back home
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Home, home
I can only dream
Home, home
It's where I want to be

Hey Daydreamer
Call me what you will
I try to be present
But my mind won't stay still

Walk through the streets
But I'm not really here
I'm where two worlds meet
Imagination and reality

Home, home
I can only dream
Home, home
It's where I want to be

I will not pretend that I'm happy
Being away from the place
I want to be
I want to be

Home, home, home
I want to go
Home, home, home
I want to go

Home, home, home
I want to go
Home, home, home
I want to go
I want to go home

Where the waves crash down on the shore
The night-lights of the harbor call
The moon rises over all
My childhood memories

I can only dream
It's here I want to be
I can only dream
It's here I want to be

Hey Daydreamer
Hey Daydreamer
Hey Daydreamer
Hey Daydreamer

Billy

He loved me
Understood
He needed me
Oh it felt so good

But when he left my side
For that motorcycle ride
I said to him while
Starring in his eyes

I said I want you
To feel like a man
I need you
To feel like a man, a man

Billy, Billy
Billy, oh Billy
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You always followed through
With your dangerous pursuits
With open arms I'd always
Say to You

I'd say I want you
To feel like a man
I need you
To feel like a man, a man

Danger, devotion
Freedom and fear
So closely entwined
For so many years

Billy
Lying in the dark
Billy
Death do us part

Why did I let you ride
Through the wilderness that night
I'm haunted by the words
I used to say

I'd say I want you
To feel like a man
I need you
To feel like a man, a man

Billy, Billy, Billy
Oh Billy
Billy, Billy

The Small Hotel

I'm not running from my shadow
Anymore
I surrender bow and arrow
Close the door
And sit right down
I want to tell you about it all
About the hotel where we rose and fell
Where heaven followed hell

In the rooftop garden
When I fall apart
When you look at me
And you say sweetheart
We're gonna make it to the other side
We're gonna make it to the other side
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
'Cause we're not running from our shadows
Anymore
We surrender bow and arrows
Close the door
And sit right down
I want to tell you about it all
About the hotel where we rose and fell
Where heaven followed on from hell

In the rooftop garden
When I fall apart
When you look at me
And you say sweetheart

We're gonna make it to the other side
We're gonna make it to the other side
We're gonna make it to the other side
We're gonna make it to the other side

We're gonna make it to the other side
We're gonna make it to the other side
We're gonna make it to the other side
We're gonna make it to the other side

Needle In The Hay

Needle in the hay
Believe me when I say
My mind is crystal clear

I came aboard this boat
Overflowing with hope
I saw you in despair
And I could not help but stare

Bye-bye now I
Have no choice but to follow my heart
Side by your side
Here we are beginning a new start

Needle in the hay
Believe me when I say
My mind is crystal clear

And now I know the tale
History repeats
And the boat is setting sail

Bye-bye now I
Have no choice but to follow my heart
Side by your side
Here we are beginning a new start
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Needle in the hay
Believe me when I say
My mind is crystal clear

Bye-bye now I
Have no choice but to follow my heart
Side by your side
Here we are beginning a new start

Needle in the hay
Believe me when I say
My mind is crystal clear

Dear Mr Heartless

Dear Mr Heartless
Horse with a broken harness
Why'd you have to be so reckless
Campfire burning in the darkness

Bright, bright colours golden
Hush, hush when you stole them
You are the guilt I hold within
Now you've gone and left me broken
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Knocking at my door till daylight
Oh, this does not feel right
Send this letter to your address
Dear My Heartless

You're just a thought
You're just a feeling
I don't want your cards
So stop dealing
Going to turn my back
On this madness
Dear, dear Mr Heartless

Dear Mr Heartless
Following the road to excess
You are the guilty sunset
Setting on the body right in front of it

I tried but I'm getting nowhere
Can't you see that you're so cold hearted
I want to be free to do what feels right
But you hunt me down every single night

You're just a thought
You're just a feeling
I don't want your cards
So stop dealing
Going to turn my back
On this madness
Dear, dear Mr Heartless

Poor boy hanging with your head down low
Hanging with your head down
Poor boy hanging with your head down low
No one wants you around

I Will Not Wear Your Wedding Ring

Last night I had the strangest dream
I was down beside a moonlight stream
My dress was torn
My hands were down on the ground

In the distance was a flickering light
It came closer, closer, Ďtill it was bright
I could see you standing there
With a ring in your hand
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But I will not wear your wedding ring
And I will not tell you anything
But to leave me here alone
I ask you to go

Go!
Go!

And you told me that you knew me well
It was as if though you were under a spell
I was nervous just imagining how I'd escape

But you would not rise from bended knee
And you would not walk away from me
I'll tell you once again
I ask you to go

Go
Go

Go
Back to where you came from
Go
Back to where you came from

No, no, no
Go back to where you came from
Go back to where you came from, boy

And I will not wear your wedding ring
And I will not tell you anything
Yeah I will not wear your wedding ring
I will not tell you anything
But to go
Go, go, go, go, go

Right Back Where I Started From

Take me back again
To where I lost my way
And gave up everything
The beating of a drum
To follow and become
Just left of centre storm
Dishevelled, slightly worn
Right back where I started from
Through the gates
Of a sacred holy place
White statues in their drapes
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Right back where I started from
Right back where I started from
Right back where I started from
Right back where I started from

There's a circle that someone has drawn
Follow it back home where I belong
Right back where I started from
Right back where I started from

There's a circle that someone has drawn
Follow it back home where I belong
Right back where I started from
Right back where I started from

Catch Of The Day

Thought I'd catch the catch of the day but the catch of the day caught me
Down the road, around the bend and the rest is history
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
I'm not going to live my life being told who I'm supposed to be
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea

Yeah, like the waves crashing the sand
I will learn to understand
I'd rather lose than never try
Hold my arms out and I'll fly
Fly, fly, fly, fly

Thought I'd catch the catch of the day but the catch of the day caught me
Down the road, around the bend and the rest is history
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
I'm not going to live my life being told who I'm supposed to be
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
All you snakes and spiders are the cruellest enemies
Crawling up beside me when I'm falling to me knees
I got to fly
Fly, fly, fly, fly

Thought I'd catch the catch of the day but the catch of the day caught me
Down the road, around the bend and the rest is history
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
I'm not going to live my life being told who I'm supposed to be

Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
I'm not going to live my life being told who I'm supposed to be
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea
I'm not going to live my life being told who I'm supposed to be
Hold that fish above my head and then throw it back out to sea

Seed of Doubt

When I wake I see the daylight
Open eyes I never lose sight
Seed of doubt you are beside me
I never asked for your company

I, I'm falling like a feather
Down, I don't know whether we are
Breaking up breaking up or losing touch
Giving up hope when we have so much
I love you, I love you
But I just don't know what feels right anymore

I'm a fool if I follow
The road to uncertainty
Faded sign with an arrow
I don't belong here

I, I'm falling like a feather
Down, I don't know whether we are
Breaking up breaking up or losing touch
Giving up hope when we have so much
I love you, I love you
But I just don't know what feels right anymore
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Waking up , waking up next to you
I know I want this I know I do
But the seed of doubt
It makes me question everything
I do

I, I'm falling like a feather
Down, I don't know whether

I'm running, I'm running
Just as fast as I can
It does not mean I'm leaving
I just question everything
That comes to hand
Believing, believing
I can turn myself around
'Cause I don't feel right anymore

I love you, I love you
I love you, I do
I love you, I love you
I love you, I do

Holly Drive

There's a certain time of day
When I go for a walk in the sunlight
All the cracks and the crevices
Are holding in the darkness so tight

Heavy heart
I'll protect you
Weathered soul
I won't neglect you

'Cause there's a sunny disposition on the outside
On the outside
But it's a shady place I live in on the inside
On the inside
Fingers and bones and cobwebs and holes
In the carpet
Feel the beat of my shoes on the street
Until I make it
Back home

People often say
I'm a lot like the man from Paris, Texas
But here I am on Holly Drive
With hummingbirds and sunny skies, protected

Heavy heart
I'll protect you
Weathered soul
I won't neglect you

'Cause there's a sunny disposition on the outside
On the outside
But it's a shady place I live in on the inside
On the inside
Fingers and bones and cobwebs and holes
In the carpet
Feel the beat of my shoes on the street
Until I make it
Back home

Little old house in the middle of the street
I saw you open the gate and I saw you leave
Living in a story book neighbourhood
Complicated, misunderstood
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
There's a sunny disposition on the outside
On the outside
But it's a shady place I live in on the inside
On the inside
Fingers and bones and cobwebs and holes
In the carpet
Feel the beat of my shoes on the street
Until I make it
Back home

States and Spaces

Why do I dry my eyes
Tear drops on my skin
Reveal the state and space I am in

A curse this fragile rain
But I wash my hands of shame
For I've been stung
And I am in love again

There's a letter I wrote to myself as a child
It said "beware of a heart that's wild"
But a heart that's wild is what I'm drawn to
And I will never regret falling in love with you

Why do I run away
When there's so much more to say
I saw myself in her
I was terrified

But that's the risk you take
When you follow blindly and shake
I don't feel safe
But at least I'm satisfied

There's a letter I wrote to myself as a child
It said "beware of a heart that's wild"
But a heart that's wild is what I'm drawn to
And I will never regret falling in love with you

Gone are the days
When I'd sit in the hallway
Dreaming all day
Floating in sorrow
Deep in the night
I know what's right
It's never black or white
But the colours are magical
And all consuming
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
There's a letter I wrote to myself as a child
It said "beware of a heart that's wild"
It said "beware of a heart that's wild"
It said "beware of a heart that's wild"
It said "beware of a heart that's wild"
But a heart that's wild is what I'm drawn to
And I will never regret falling in love with you

By my side
And I like
Where've you been
Long lost angel
Ride my bike
So much faster
Sixteen beats
And I'm back with you

There's a house
Inside different rooms
I've thought
I can see that
There's one door
Never opened
I'm inside
Asking questions

Why can't I
Play my songs for you
You know I tried last night
This is all I came up with
Yeah

I like your style
Styling me
I want to smile
So bad, please you make me feel
And I'm feeling you
But there's
One thing I've got to say

Why can't I
Play my songs for you
You know I tried last
This is all I came up with
Yeah

Why can't I
Play my songs for you
You know I tried last
This is all I came up with
Yeah

Why can't I
Why can't I
Why can't I

About Last Night

( About Last Night EP )

This is all
About last night
This is all
About last night

The lights are low
The diner is not what it seems
Am I in a dream

Hotel car
In my head
Where is the key
Little secrets
Are coming clear

You're making plans
So she's got something to break
You're holding hands
The accidental mistake
When you change your mind
She can see
She's left confused and defeated
This was not meant to be
This is all about last night
Yeah
This is all about last night

She's got her face on the jacket, it's warm
She never felt so unsafe before
She gets caught in a b-grade storm
If you do this do it for you
If you do this do it for you
If you do this do it for you
If you do this do it for you
Take her back she cannot stay there
She doesn't know what else to do
If you do this do it for you
And stop before you start

Making plans
So she's got something to break
You're holding hands
The accidental mistake
When you change your mind
She can see
She's left confused and defeated
This was not meant to be
This is all
About last night
You turn to watch her leave now
She's alright
She's alright

Four Seasons In One Day

( Crowded House cover / She Will Have Her Way: The Songs Of Tim & Neil Finn LP )

Four seasons in one day
Lying in the depths of your imagination
Worlds above and worlds below
The sun shines on the black clouds hanging over the domain

Even when you're feeling warm
The temperature could drop away
Like four seasons in one day

Smiling as the shit comes down
You can tell a man from what he has to say
Everything gets turned around
And I will risk my neck again, again

You can take me where you will
Up the creek and through the mill
All the things you can't explain
Four seasons in one day

Blood dries up
Like rain, like rain
Fills my cup
Like four seasons in one day

It doesn't pay to make predictions
Sleeping on an unmade bed
Finding out wherever there is comfort, there is pain
Only one step away
Like four seasons in one day

Blood dries up
Like rain, like rain
Fills my cup
Like four seasons in one day

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

Home

( About Last Night EP )

Came home
Everything was a blur
All mixed up and messed up
Eyes all tired and broken
Came home
Everything was a blur
All mixed up and messed up
Eyes all tired and broken
Came home
Everything was a blur

I saw the map
I've found the map
It was floating and faded and torn
The missing pieces they were gone
This does not make sense
It's all so incomplete
It's all so incomplete

I forgot to say goodbye
I forgot to read the signs
I forgot to say goodbye
I forgot to read the signs
And the map lies here
It's torn and faded
On a dark street lined with pine trees
I close my eyes
Touch the surface
It's all so personal
And confusing
It's all so personal
And confusing

Inside (The corrections)

( New Buffalo EP )

Why are you always correcting me
Was it something I said
When I was on your knee
I try to be calm
While the ocean is rough
I'll stay up on the deck
And play some cards

Finding that door was the answer for me
Could you cover up my feelings
While I'm out at sea
Try to be wise, independent and tough
But I secretly collapse
Now I've had enough

It's alright
Here we are
Inside

It's alright
Here we are
Inside

It came to while I was dreaming at night
I'm just living a correction of your life
No matter how heartless and hard it seems
There is always a child inside the machine

It's alright
Here we are
Inside

It's alright
Here we are
Inside

It's alright
Here we are
Inside

Why are you always correcting me
Was it something I said
When I was on your knee
I try to be calm
While the ocean is rough
I'll stay up on the deck
And play some cards

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

Just a little time

( About Last Night EP )

Just a little time
By yourself
I hate to see you sad
I know the drive will do you good
And while you're outside
I hope you clear your mind
Driving down the road to come home to find

Giving all is great
Stars on fire
Catch you while you sleep
Tearing out the pages
Just to keep
Me alive
Warming to your charm
Changes will surround us
It's the carnival of seasons
I decided you should be here with me now

I'm not leaving
You're what keeps me
All inspired
Have I told you
In the room
I played guitar
I wrote about you
All night long and
I'm not leaving
You're what keeps me
All inspired
Have I told you
In the room
I played guitar
I wrote about you
All night long and
I'm not leaving
You're what keeps me
All inspired
Have I told you

Stay Here While You're Gone

( New Buffalo EP )

Completely unbroken
Away for a while
In a love that I was so dependent
On your belief
Such a seperate religion now
That I don't need to call on you
Anymore, anymore

Look inside and you will find
Your worries are hiding
Are the silent building scattered trees
So cozy then you're wear is
Choose to stay here while you're gone
Stay here while you're gone
Stay here while you're gone

Give me a reason
Why you so of all
Such delights
Conversations so reassuring
On perfect nights
Sorry you spill such uncertain feelings
But I just missed the safest place I've ever know
Ever know

Look inside and you will find
Your worries are hiding
Are the silent building scattered trees
So cozy then you're wear is
Choose to stay here while you're gone
Stay here while you're gone
Stay here while you're gone
Stay here while you're gone
Stay here while you're gone

The Beginning Of The End

( New Buffalo EP )

You got me thinking about the end.
Giving up making changes and starting again.
You with your eyes open when you're sleepwalking.
Check the time, it's the beginning of the end.

Tonight there's a race with an intangible prize
Bare feet on the lawn see the frill in your eyes
And we'll sing the winning song together again.
'Cause it's time for the begiinning of the end

Locked inside cabin fever, he's changed his tun
He's not singing the blues, he's seranading you
Take my hand, close your eyes
Let me lead you astray

'Cause tonight marks of the end of your terrible ways
And together we'll climb and stand on top
See the lights in the city
See your courage singing pretty
One more letter to send
Say "thank you friend"
I'm here at the beginning of the end

This Is More

( About Last Night EP )

This is all I remember
One night's dating back through December

Golden moon in your eyes
I'm under water
Such a surprise

This is more
Than desire
I feel all
Like I'm higher
Than before
This is more

You're on stage in a different town
And the press say that they want some more

You deserve the award
I'm under water
Such a surprise

This is more
Than desire
I feel all
Like I'm higher
Than before
This is more

This is more
Than desire
I feel all
Like I'm higher
Than before
This is more

Trigger

( New Buffalo EP )

Trigger you're gone
And I'm sad
You were all
I ever had
Your eyes in my head
It was love
I never said

Silver white shoes
In your briefcase
Forgetting the blues
Trigger you're gone
Trigger you're gone
You've got your own way
Of moving on

I see a light
Feel it all
Hold my hand
I'm gonna fall
Travelling on
Through the night now
You've got the stars
Trigger you're gone
Trigger you're gone
You've got your own way
Of moving on

Silver white shoes
In your briefcase
Forgetting the blues
Trigger you're gone
Trigger you're gone
You've got your own way
Of moving on
