Roisin Murphy's debut solo album is to be pre-released as a series of three strictly limited edition EPs in the New Year, ahead of its more formal emergence on compact disc and long-player later in the spring. Beginning with ‘Sequins1' in the first week of January, each of these lavishly packaged, heavy-weight vinyl, 12-inch-only releases will take four of the tunes from the record and make them available at six-week intervals leading up the album's release in May. All the tracks on the ‘Sequins' series are the results of Roisin's new fruitful collaboration with producer Matthew Herbert , who she met as a result of his remix work for her band Moloko. This is the first time the highly-revered electronic pioneer Herbert has produced an album for another artist, aside from his wife Dani Siciliano. Here the significant ground covered on ‘Sequins 1' by Roisin and Herbert indicates what to expect from the broader scope of the pair's collaboration on the forthcoming album. “Having worked on several Moloko remixes from as early as 1996 Roisin's voice had become a familiar friend ,” says Herbert .” I had always loved the ease with which it sat in the textures of the sounds I work with. To work on her solo record struck me as the perfect place to try and mix proper musical charisma with noises not often heard on the radio.” This first ‘Sequins' EP commences with the agenda-setting ‘Ruby Blue' , which begins with an ear-catching meld of distorted funk and Andrews Sisters harmonies. It slides around like a languid and sinuous eel, all finger-pops and syncopated handclaps, before busting out with a too-loud fuzz guitar and Roisin's provocative kitten purr. ‘Off On It' , which follows, has a percussive track that sounds like a steam train pulling slowly out of a siding, while Roisin delightfully slurs her way through a miasma of flirtatious signs and signifiers. Third up, ‘Night Of the Dancing Flame' is like a lost classic number featuring either the elephants on parade from the Jungle Book (tremendous muted trumpet blasts) or Josephine Baker in all her Parisian glory. As it lollops along with cartoonish gait, Roisin tells more tales of sexual abandon in not entirely private places, and you realise that between them her and Herbert might have hit upon a long untapped resource of Cab Calloway-influenced pop music. It's crazy and not a little infectious. ‘Sequins 1' is completed by the magical warmth of ‘ Through Time' , which in its hazier moments approaches the gentle feel of one of the great ballads off a good Stevie Wonder record. The ‘Sequins' EPs will also introduce another powerfully creative collaboration with the artist Simon Henwood , who has painted a number of large-scale portraits of Roisin, which are to be exhibited at the Hospital in London in March 2005*, and will be reproduced one at a time as the sleeves to ‘Sequins 1 – 3'.

Leaving the city

Wish I was taking you with me

No more goodbyes,
No more goodbyes,
Tell me to stay home

There’s no place
No more goodbyes,
No more goodbyes,
Tell me to stay home

I’m leaving…I’m leaving

No more goodbyes,
No more goodbyes,
Tell me to stay home

I’m leaving…I’m leaving

There’s no place
I’m leaving…I’m leaving
There’s no place
No more goodbyes

No exotic country
I found my journey’s end
When I found you
Don’t let me go
Won’t leave town
Or go around
If you say so
Won’t leave you no if you say so

Can’t stay always going away
Never knowing the way home
Another hour
Another day
Surely we
Will find a way somehow

We’re leaving the city today
Leaving the city
Soon I will be gone
Leaving the city today
Soon I will be gone

Leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving
No more goodbyes
No more goodbyes
Tell me to stay home
I’m leaving
I’m leaving

No more goodbyes
No more goodbyes
Tell me to stay home
I’m leaving
I’m leaving

There’s no place
There’s no place
There’s no place
There’s no place
There’s no place

There’s no place I’d rather be
Than here dear
If I call you dear, it’s because you are

There’s no face
I’d rather see
There’s no fear
Don’t be afraid to say
Stay another day
Then another day

Don’t be afraid to say it
Or hold on
Don’t be gone too long baby
Another kiss
One more caress
An ego, no
Another yes

We’re leaving the city today
There’s something still left here to say
A D F C A F
D F C E D C D

We’re leaving the city today
Why can’t I get you to ask me stay?
Don’t you want to let the music play
D F C E D C D

We’re leaving the city today
Is there something i’ve left here to say?
Don’t you want to let the music play
A D F C A F D F C E D C D

Soon I will be gone
I’m leaving
I’m leaving
Don’t you want to let the music play?

Soon I will be gone

Sinking feeling

Deep in
Quick sand
You dive in
At the shallow end
You break your
Neck and
You’re never ever gonna get up again

The glass house that you lived in
Is deep in the quickening
Angels might call by
But fools they rush in

Bring some peace to your mind
For today is a new day

Here in my hand
Time is just sand
Fine lines of love and hate
There on your face
But I look at this way
In the next seven days
In the next
It might just change

How can I write
The story that
Went and wrote itself
Down on paperback
Called “the foutain of know thyself”
It’s a lonely book
Still upon the shelf

It’ll be all smiles
And we’ll rise and ride
On the waves of a sinking feeling

Bring some peace to your mind
For today is a new day

Happy people don’t give into
Happy people don’t give into
That sinking feeling

It’ll be all smiles
And we’ll rise and we’ll sail

It’ll be all smiles
And we’ll rise and we’ll sail
On the waves

It’ll be all smiles
And we’ll rise and we’ll sail
On the waves
Of a sinking feeling

Night of the dancing flame

Curiosity
The young and the free
There for all to see
Entranced
Burned by the flame
Have your senses taken leave
Into the fire of true belief
It’s the orgy of the free

It was at first as
If they were shadows
Shimmering visions
By the light of the dancing flame
Bodies in motion
The sound of the ocean
Came into vision
On the night of the dancing flame

What of your own free will
Bodies are writhing still
There in the moonlight
With my head up help high
Wish I could keep on walking by
But I
Find myself drawn to you
I let you do what you want to do
You had your wicked way
There on the site of the dancing flame

It was at first as
If they were shadows
Shimmering visions
By the light of the dancing flame
Bodies in motion
The sound of the ocean
Came into vision
On the night of the dancing flame

To dance around the fire
On the night of the dancing flame
To make the flame grow higher
In the light of the dancing flame

To dance around the fire
On the night of the dancing flame
To make the flame grow higher
In the light of the dancing flame

Oh that starry night
Lost my sense of time
I don’t know how I
Got my fingers burned

Maybe I got too close
To the light of the
To the light of the
To the light of the dancing flame

The light of the
The light of the
The light of the dancing flame

Through time

Now the time has elapsed
It inevitably has come to pass
That I write for you at last
A song, a rhyme
Oh, to tell you the truth of it
I’m a little confused myself
Is it through memory’s rose-tinted glass
I have come to ask
Or is it a love that was meant to last
Through time itself

Proving us wrong all along
Shouldn’t we be holding on
It’s a silly thing really
That you shouldn’t believe in
Nothing too complicated
Endlessly formulated
Foolish romantic ideals of love

Could there be such a thing
How could there be such a thing
As beautifully flawed
We’ll make mistakes and then
Life is the art of learning to live with it
Through time

But you knew it
All along
You who are wiser than I
See it coming
See it coming
See it coming
Every time

How did you predict
The end of the world
When you can’t see beyond
The end of your nose
Would you look at the life I chose
Baby it’s you I need to tell it to
Maybe no other will ever do
Through time

Shouldn’t we be holding on
Maybe no other will ever do
Maybe no other will ever do

Shouldn’t we be holding on
Maybe no other will ever do
Maybe no other will ever do

Shouldn’t we be holding on
Maybe no other will ever do
Maybe no other will ever do

Shouldn’t we be holding on
Maybe no other will ever do
Maybe no other will ever do

Proving us wrong all along

Ideals of love
Foolish romantic
Ideals of love

Could there be such a thing
How could there be such a thing
As beautifully flawed
Ideals of love

Sow into you

Sow into you
Into you
Into you

What the...
What the...
Did you do to me
Heavy cloud come down on
When all of heaven’s bliss
Is in this perfect kiss
Rain down on me

Bring me a change in the weather
Break open the sky
Heat keeps building
It’s hot in the city
And I’m not sleeping at night
Can I get relief

I am a lyrical soul
Bound to get carried away
But there’s nothing left to say
‘cept I I I I I
I am a lyrical soul
I I I I I love you

Sow into
Into you
I’ll bring you
Into this earth
Has sorely missed the kiss of rain

Sow into
Into you
I’ll bring you up into it
Is this how it feels to kiss the same

I chose you for your wave
Frequency
You take me up against
The freak in me
Just tell me what you
X X X expect of me
Expect of me

I am a lyrical soul
Bound to get carried away
But I think it’s fair to say
You Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Love me

Sow into
Into you
I’ll bring you
Into this earth
Has sorely missed the kiss of rain

Sow into
Into you
I’ll bring you up into it
Is this how it feels to kiss the same

Sow into
Into you
I’ll bring you
Into this earth
Has sorely missed the kiss of rain

Sow into
Into you
I’ll bring you up into it
Is this how it feels to kiss the same

Sow into
Into you
I’ll bring you
Into this earth
Has sorely missed the kiss of rain

And I think it’s here to stay
Sow into
Though I’m bound to get carried away
I’ll bring you
But I think it’s here to stay
Though I’m bound to get carried away

Dear diary

Dear diary
My dear
Got to keep it all inside
Got to keep it locked behind a
Golden wall of silence
You see I have my pride
And I won’t be telling him
Anytime soon
Too afraid to say it
I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself
Telling everybody the truth

No I
I won’t send this valentine
Violets are blue
And if you don’t receive this valentine
It doesn’t mean that is ain’t true
And I’m not thinking of you

Won’t kiss
I won’t tell
Never cross these lips
Never break the spell
I decided to go on denying myself
Living alone
Living a lie

No I
I won’t send this valentine
Violets are blue
And if you don’t receive this valentine
It doesn’t mean that is ain’t true
And I’m not thinking of you
No I

I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie

To never speak of it
Or hear the music of it
We’ll play a symphony
In my wildest dreams

No I
I won’t send this valentine
Violets are blue
And if you don’t receive this valentine
It doesn’t mean that is ain’t true
And I’m not thinking of you

No I
I won’t send this valentine
Violets are blue
And if you don’t receive this valentine
It doesn’t mean that is ain’t true
And I’m not thinking of you

I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie

I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie

I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie

I keep living a lie
I keep living a lie


If we're in love

If we’re in love
If we’re in love
If we’re in love

If we’re in love
If we’re in love
If we’re in love
We should make love

Where the sun it never sets
And where the wind forgets
I will forget you
Where the sky goes on for miles
And never ties
Of an improbable blue
When the supreme mysteries
Decide to reveal all to us
And make an endless night
Still I will come to remember

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
When will we be lovers?

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we could make love
When will that be?

I’m gonna forget you
When the rivers stop and turn to run
To where they’ve begun
Back up the mountainside
When the sun it comes to the night to play
And like I do just sleep all day
When the moon and the stars turn to the light
Not in the dark of night
But in the morning sky
When the roses turn to bloom
Not in June
But in the bitter cold of December
There’s not a
There’s not a joy in this whole world to give
There’s not a joy
As lovely as the bird that flew away

Last night I
Last night I
I think I dreamt a
Beautiful song
But when I woke
The birds had flown
And it was gone

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
When will we be lovers?

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we could make love
When will that be?

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
When will we be lovers?

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
When will that be?

If we’re in love
If we’re in love

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
When will we be lovers?

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we could make love
When will that be?

If we’re in love we should make love
If we
If we’re in love we should make love
If we
If we’re in love we should make love
When will we be lovers?

If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
If we’re in love we should make love
When will that be?


Ramalama (bang bang)

Bang, bang !

Could a body close the mind out
Stitch a seam across the eye
If you can be good, you’ll live forever
If you’re bad, you’ll die when you die

Hearing only one true note
On the one and only sound
Unzip my body
Take my heart out
'Cause I need a beat to give this tune

Taking a picture of
Taking a picture of
Taking a picture of

Oh the body swayed to music
Oh the lightning glance
If I would give it all and all
Maybe you would hear me
Ask for half a chance

Hearing only one root note
Planted firmly in the ground
Undo my heart, unzip my body and
Lend to my ear a clear and a deafening sound

Unzip my heart

And if I need a rhythm
It’ll be to my heart I listen
If it don’t get me too far wrong

And if I
And if I
And if I need a rhythm
It’s gonna be to my heart I listen
If it don’t take me too far gone

Everybody smile please
Nobody pay no mind to me
Finger in position on the switch
A little flash photography

Taking a picture of you
Taking a picture of
Taking a picture of me
Taking a picture

Ruby Blue

You’d better stop
And try to think
Look what you’re doing
Oh, Ruby

You never get to give it all you got
Cause you forgot to take it to the top
Oh Ruby Blue

Why do you make a start
With no means to go on
It’s on the tip of your

You used to make us laugh
It really was a gas
But now you’re a bore

Nobody cares anyway
If you play the painted lady

Who would have believed
It would come to this
Look what you do

Off on it

You know that you like it
You know that you love it, really, ha ha
It’s just a game that we play
It’s a world away from your everyday pain
And your suffering
It’s just a game, my darling please

Please don’t go to the trouble
No no not on account of me
For I’m sure to bring double
Sure to bring double
I’ll bring you to your knees

Might you be getting off on it

You, you were asking for this
And now you’re gonna get it
You were begging me, please
Don’t be surprised if you

One big joke
Don’t be surprised if you get it
I’ll just all one big joke
It’s all mirrors and smoke
A not so elaborate hoax
You know how
One thing tends to
Lead to another
Before you know where you are
You’re there, tied to the chair
You’re going nowhere
Might you be getting off on it

It’s just a game
Not your everyday pain
It’s just a game

It’s just a game
It’s a world away from your everyday pain
And your suffering
It’s just a game

Don’t you get off on it
Don’t you get off on it
Don’t you get off on it...

Off on it
Off on it
Off on it...

It’s just a game
It’s a world away from your everyday pain
And your suffering
It’s just a game

It’s just a game
Everyday pain

It’s just a game
It’s a world away from your everyday pain
And your suffering
It’s just a game

The closing of the doors

We’re too busy
We’re just too busy
Always making predictions
Never make an exception
To the rules

Why do we fight
All through the night
Why do we fight at all
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Let’s just turn the whole damn thing upside down
Do you recognize
The one you knew before
The closing of the doors

Don’t you remind me of someone
Don’t you remind me
I knew you better
Don’t you remind me
Much better than that
I never loved you blindly
I knew a man who was better
Much better than that
Much better than that
Much better than that

Once you’ve said it
Oh, oh, oh, oh
You can’t take it back
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I knew you’d find that note someday
So I wrote down
All the things that I couldn’t say

You and I
Up all night
Why do we fight at all

The closing of the doors
The calling of time
Don’t you remind me of someone
Don’t you remind me

Long enough, baby
You know me
Only too well

I just thought someone had to mention
So don't get defensive
No, no, don't try to pretend to
Look surprised

Have you ever known me
Be too shy to jump in
But when it comes to you
I can't win
'Cause you know me better than I know myself

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself
You know what to expect

Understand it
Nobody understands you
The way that I can
Let's see this thing through
One thing remaining
Things will never be the same again
After tonight

So let's get down to it
This thing is getting stronger and stronger
We need to take it further
I can't wait no longer of waiting my turn
I've waited in line

How long have I known you
Not in all this time been untrue
I think we're more than friends
Let me see this through
You know me better than I know myself

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself
You know what to expect

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself

How many years can we keep going on this way
I believe
Too afraid too much at stake
Yeah I believe the friendship can survive
I believe
Maybe it won't if we do or we don't

You know me better than I know myself
You know me the best
You know me better than I know myself

Checkin' up on me

It's your uneasy mind
That's been making you blind
I won't lie to you

You've got trouble inside
Baby, I’ve nothing to hide
I've been good to you

All the way from New York City
Calling me constantly
He's asking if I’m sitting pretty
Waiting patiently

Darling, I would not forsake thee
I'm telling you honestly, yeah yeah

What do you think you're gonna find
Checkin' up on me
Baby, you've got a trouble mind
It's time to set me free

What do you think you're gonna find
Checkin' up on me
Baby, you've got a trouble mind

How can you judge
If I don't miss you enough
Any fool can see:
If you can't trust yourself
Can't trust nobody else
Did you lie to me
Yeah, did you lie to me

Even when we are together
Still the jealousy
You know, I just wanna dance forever
And you wanna take that from me

Suppose you really think you're clever
Stealing my liberty, yeah yeah

What do you think you're gonna find
Checkin' up on me
Baby, you've got a trouble mind
It's time to set me free

What do you think you're gonna find
Checkin' up on me
Baby, you've got a trouble mind

I get ready to think about
Looking into you
I need to know when you're going out
And all the things you do
You may not be guilty by default
And have the nerve to question me
When it's you who could get caught

What do you think I’m gonna find
When I’m checkin' up on you
Maybe you've got something to hide
Though I think I always knew

What do you think I’m gonna find
When I’m checkin' up on you
Maybe you've got something to hide
Though I think I always knew

What do you think you're gonna find
Checkin' up on me
Baby, you've got a trouble mind
It's time to set me free

What do you think you're gonna find
Checkin' up on me
Baby, you've got a trouble mind

(it's so strange kind of loving)
What do you think you're gonna find
Checkin' up on me
(is it fair love)
Baby, you've got a trouble mind
(is it fair love)
It's time to set me free
(i know you're feigning your suffering)

What do you think you're gonna find
(is it fair love)
Checkin' up on me
Baby, you've got a trouble mind

I can't explain your suspicions
I think it's you
Issues, you, issues
Think it's you
I think it's you

It's so strange kind of loving

Let me know

I turn the other way
I never turn you down
You turn me on
Don't speak out every meaning
I don't belong to you
You don't belong to me
So don't hold on too tightly

Let me know when you're lonely babe
Let me know when you're lonely babe

Happier now than I’ve been in the past
Gone are the days
Gone are the tears
That was the girl I used to be

The girl that you now see standing in front of you
Could keep going on
Because she believes
In setting you free

So let me know when you're lonely babe
Let me know when you're lonely baby
Let me know when you're lonely babe
Let me know when you're lonely baby

I turn the other way
I can never turn you down
You turn me on
Don't speak out every meaning

I don't belong to you
Like you don't belong to me
So don't hold on too tightly
Let forever be

So let me know when you're lonely babe
Let me know when you're lonely baby
Let me know when you're lonely babe
Let me know when you're lonely baby

Let me know when you're lonely babe
It might be sweet
Let me know when you're lonely baby
If we could be
Let me know when you're lonely babe
Along the way
Let me know when you're lonely baby
That could be okay

They're all the same in this cynical age
I won't be your ball and chain
I risk my reputation
Just to get a room
You always have the reservation
So come lie down beside me

So let me know when you're lonely babe
Let me know when you're lonely baby
Beside me
Let me know when you're lonely babe
Beside me
Let me know when you're lonely baby
Beside me

So let me know when you're lonely babe
It might be sweet
Let me know when you're lonely baby
If we could be
Let me know when you're lonely babe
Along the way
Let me know when you're lonely baby
That could be okay

That could be okay

It might be sweet
If we could be
Along the way
That could be okay

Movie star

I'm a trusting soul, I’m ashamed of living dangerously
I'm a headstrong girl, I’m afraid I won't be told
I feel my destiny is only 'round the corner
Sugar daddy promised me I’ll be sitting on top of the world

He saw my naked ambitions
Said I would leave them wanting more
That could be crazy wishing
We could ever have it all
Have it all, have it all

We'll make a movie, we'll break into cinema
You'll be director, and I’ll be your movie star
We'll make a movie, the darlings of cinema
You'll be director, and I’ll be your movie star

So he's a headstrong guy and perhaps I shouldn't listen
There's a million girls wanna be in my position
If he tells me lies I’ll suspend my disbelieving
I leave it all behind, I ain't asking for permission

Feels like a new beginning
And there's so much to explore
It's not so crazy thinking
We could really have it all
Have it all, have it all

We'll make a movie, we'll break into cinema
You'll be director, and I’ll be your movie star
We'll make a movie, the darlings of cinema
You'll be director, and I’ll be your movie star

Movie star

Primitive

From the primordial soup
Out of the din and the bloom we came
We are animal
By any of the name

From the primordial soup
Out of the din and the bloom we came
We are animal
One unbroken chain

I need to get you out of your cave, man
I need to let you out of your cage and set you free
If tonight's the night
I'm gonna show you I ain't got no game plan

Out from under a rock
From a prehistoric sea we crawled
We are animal
Animal one and all

Out from under a rock
From the prehistoric sea we came
We are animal
Animal, one unbroken chain

I know what you're searching for
I pray that you find it on the instinct
I, I don't need you hurting, boy
Animalistic

I need to get you out of your cave, man
I wanna let you out of your cage and set you free
If tonight's the night
I wanna show you I ain't got no game plan

I need to get you out of your cave, man
I wanna let you out of your cage and set you free
If tonight's the night
I wanna show you I ain't got no game plan

If you call out tonight
And hear the call of the wild reply
You are animal
Animal not so deep inside

If you call out in vain
Everyone of us just the same
We are animal
Dare not speak its name

I know what you're searching for
I pray that you find it on the instinct
I, I don't need you hurting, boy
Animalistic

I need to get you out of your cave, man (primitive)
I'm gonna let you out of your cage and set you free
If tonight's the night
I wanna show you I ain't got no game plan
Primitive love for me

I need to get you out of your cave, man (primitive)
I'm gonna let you out of your cage and set you free
If tonight's the night
I wanna show you I ain't got no game plan
Primitive love for me

Footprints

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this

Teddy bear
Baby, can we take it slowly?
'Cause I’m a junky for love
But we can still have a party

Take care
'Cause baby I’m a delicate flower
But I could still open up
Just like a beautiful orchid

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this

Teddy bear
Can we take it softly, softly?
Just let me fix up for love
And we could still get it started

Steady there
Let me maybe talk you through it
Just 'cause this feeling's for real
Don't mean you know how to do it

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this

Take a chance on a night romance, would you
For a change gonna do what I have to do

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this

Footprints in the morning snow
You've got me rocking like an echo, echo
Fresher than the daisy eaves
It drives me crazy when you play me this...

Dear Miami

Behind these walls you can be so self-absorbed
Behind those eyes: no disguise. Disguise, no you can’t disguise
Behind this fortress of an address stuck in the passion void
With a little style full & for a while, but you can’t turn back time

Dear Miami
You’re the first to go
Disappearing
Under melting snow
Each and everyone
Turn your critical eye
On the burning sun
And try not to cry

Strictly, rolling, V.I.P
Strictly, rolling, V.I.P

We got it all, the empire ever falls
We got all control, untold power too
Do what you want to do
We got the moves
But there’s nothing left to prove
There's only stardust memories
We can make come true

Dear Miami
You’re the first to go
Disappearing
Under melting snow
Each and everyone
Turn your critical eye
On the burning sun
And try not to cry

Dear Miami
You’re the first to go
Disappearing
Under melting snow
Each and everyone
Turn your critical eye
On the burning sun
And try not to cry

Merry-go-round…again
(merry-go-round again)
A carousel, passionate raid
An escapade
(adventures in)

Strictly, rolling, (dear Miami) V.I.P
Strictly, rolling, (dear Miami) V.I.P
Strictly, rolling, (dear Miami) V.I.P
Strictly, rolling, (dear Miami) V.I.P

Cry baby

Things are getting heavy
Why don’t you get ready
Things are getting heavy
Why don’t you get ready

Things are getting heavy
Why don’t you get ready
Things are getting heavy
Why don’t you get ready...

Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby
Please don't cry

Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby
Please don't cry

To stay awake
You take a pill
You think you're moving
But you're standing still

You can't sleep
It's overkill
You think you're cruising
But it's all downhill

Maybe I could put you in the right direction
Only if you can't decide
I believe you're beyond correction
Wouldn't be the first time I made you cry

Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby, please don't cry
Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby all the time

Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby, please don't cry
Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby all the time

This won't hurt
No, not a bit
You'd better take your medicine
'Cause you are sick
Your blood runs cold
You won't be told
You're a bad seed already sowed

Maybe I could put you in the right direction
Only if you can't decide
Calling back to me looking for redemption
Wouldn't be the first time I heard you cry

Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby, please don't cry
Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby all the time

Who do you think is to blame
Everybody but you
You couldn't care less
About the things that you do

Sick of hearing you cry
Sick of hearing those lies
Tired of wiping the tears
From your eyes

You'd better go, baby

Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby, please don't cry
Oh me, oh my
Don't cry baby all the time

Tell everybody

Hey, where'd you learn to fly
So you shoot your rocket up
Into the sky
Hey, I heard you set the pace
I never thought I’d see you back
In this old place

Are you here to stay
I never thought I’d see the day
Maybe in another lifetime
I'd see you walking away from me

Tell everybody you're my baby
Tell everybody we're not fading
Tell everybody no ifs or maybes, no, no, no
Tell everybody I’m your lady
Tell everybody it's not changing
Tell everybody you're still my baby, yeah, yeah, yeah

Hey, I heard you set the tone
The day you changed the world you were
Alone
I'm at your command
You only have to clap your hands
Baby I don't understand
Why you're leaving me

Hey, I only wanna make you smile
Well, maybe it'll take a while
Maybe I’ll build a needing
If it pleases you

Tell everybody you're my baby
Tell everybody we're not fading
Tell everybody no ifs or maybes, no, no, no
Tell everybody I’m your lady
Tell everybody it's not changing
Tell everybody you're still my baby, yeah, yeah, yeah

I almost remember your face
But it's fading, but it's fading fast
Now that I remember the taste
It's a memory with a life to last

Scarlet ribbons

From the cradle to the throne, my flesh & my bones
Is that the way it’s supposed to be: how the story goes?
Ribbons & bows: like a thorn on a rose
When the one man who gave it all to you has to let you go

He found for me scarlet ribbons
Those scarlet ribbons for my hair
What becomes of a fathers love, when another has his daughters love?
Don’t you know they’ll never be above, I’ll always be your little girl

It’s all borrowed time & you always said I would regret it
If I grew up too fast, but my heart is strong & true
I’m doing fine, the things that you said, I won’t forget ‘em
I’ll do as you ask & always play fair for you

You found for me scarlet ribbons
Those scarlet ribbons for my hair
What becomes of a fathers love, when another has his daughters love?
Don’t you know they’ll never be above, I’ll always be your little girl

There’s a part of you in every part me
(you should know better)
Maybe you should know I won’t let that go
Long as I can cry on your shoulder won’t be growing up just older
You have got to let me go

You found for me scarlet ribbons
Those scarlet ribbons for my hair
What becomes of a fathers love, when another has his daughters love?
Don’t you know they’ll never be above, I’ll always be your little girl

I’ll always be, always be your little girl
Always be, always be your little girl
Always be, always be your little girl
Always be, always be your little girl

You’ve got to let it go
You’ve got to let it go
You’ve got to let it go…

Body language

Have you omitted to say those rubber bullets don’t bounce off you
Oh incry, hear it in stereo, I’ll cry after everything is done and dusted
I may convince bold and original, forgive what’s that for when you’re heading for the dance-floor
I’m here, go deep with those climb-downs branding me a heretic kind of infant-terrible
I risk I take it to the brink of it, drop you like a hot potato, everybody turn a hater

If you hear what your body says, learn body language
If I could speak, i call your name
If I could hear what your body says, i wouldn’t change it
If you speak over to me

Between false and tragedy lies a human emotion for hoping it’ll turn out alright
Ah dickens, thicken now then chicken soup, and the way that you turn it
Will take you to the end of the line
But learn, speak it that body language, definition of wordplay, conditional love
You can’t contemplate, impossible to separate one from the other
Your mother, sister’s, brother’s lover

If you hear what your body says, learn body language
If i could speak, i call your name
If i could hear what your body says, i wouldn’t change it
If you speak over to me

‘Tied up for the foreseeable future’ had ended in the 70’s science fiction motion picture
‘Back in the day’ don’t cut it now anyway
Quite a different animal, don’t you wish you’d had a mission

If you hear what your body says, learn body language
If I could speak, i call your name
If I could hear what your body says, i wouldn’t change it
If you speak over to me
If you hear what your body says, learn body language
If I could speak, I call your name…

Parallel lives

I ring kept him on, been learning fast.
I just got you wrong, it’s not built to last, it’s not built to last
Time keeps on tripping on, though I learn my lessons fast
And it was time for me to cut and run
And if I ever do the past, you’re not the only one, we’re living

Parallel lives, oh you’re not the only one
We’re so entwined, to lose it
To the passing of time
Oh we came undone, we came untied, we came untied

We live separate lives, can’t even organise
One more meeting of minds ain’t gonna make it right, no
There’s more humanity in just letting it be now
‘Cause I can’t seem to justify when we’re living separate dreams, have we forgotten love
We’re lost in…

Parallel lives, oh you’re not the only one, we’re so entwined, to lose it
To the passing of time, oh we came undone, we came untied, we came untied
Parallel lives, oh you’re not the only one, we’re so entwined, to choose it
To the passing of time, oh we came undone, we came untied, we came untied…

We chose to give it, we chose to live it, our separate lives
Got too close to heaven, but are we too driven in a parallel light
All because we chose to live it, chose to give in, our separate lives
Got too close to heaven, well are we too driven in a parallel light
What were we destined for, to live in

Parallel lives, oh you’re not the only one, we’re so entwined, to lose it
To the passing of time, oh we came undone, we came untied, we came untied
Parallel lives, oh you’re not the only one, we’re so entwined, to choose it
To the passing of time, oh we came undone, we came untied, we came untied…

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

Ancora Ancora Ancora

(Mina Mazzini cover / Mi Senti EP)

Se vuoi andare, ti capisco
Se mi lasci, ti tradisco, sì
Ma se dormo sul tuo petto
Di amarti io non smetto, no

Tu stupendo sei in amore
Sensuale sul mio cuore, sì
Se poi strappo un tuo lamento
È importante questo mio momento perché
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Io ti chiedo ancora
Il tuo corpo ancora
Le tue braccia ancora
Di abbracciarmi ancora
Di amarmi ancora
Di pigliarmi ancora
Farmi morire ancora
Perché ti amo ancora

Confusione la tua mente
Quando ama completamente, sì
Con le sue percezioni
Mette a punto le mie inclinazioni perché

Io ti chiedo ancora
La tua bocca ancora
Le tue mani ancora
Sul mio collo ancora
Di restare ancora
Consumarmi ancora
Perchè ti amo ancora
Ancora, ancora, ancora

Pensiero Stupendo

(Patty Pravo cover / Mi Senti EP)

E tu
E noi
E lei
Fra noi
Vorrei
Non so
Che lei
O no
Le mani
Le sue

Pensiero stupendo
Nasce un poco strisciando
Si potrebbe trattare di bisogno d'amore
Meglio non dire

E tu
E noi
E lei
Fra noi
Vorrei
Vorrei
E lei adesso sa che vorrei
Le mani
Le sue

Prima o poi
Poteva accadere sai
Si può scivolare se così si può dire
Questioni di cuore
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Pensiero stupendo
Nasce un poco strisciando
Si potrebbe trattare di bisogno d'amore
Meglio non dire

E tu
E noi
E lei
Fra noi
Vorrei
Vorrei
E lei adesso sa che vorrei
Le mani
Le sue

E poi un' altra volta noi due
Vorrei per amore o per ridere
Dipende da me

E tu ancora
E noi ancora
E lei un' altra volta fra noi
Le mani questa volta sei tu e lei
E lei a poco a poco di più, di più
Vicini per questioni di cuore
Se così si può dire
Dire

E tu ancora
E noi ancora
E lei un' altra volta fra noi
Fra noi
Fra noi

Pensiero stupendo
Nasce un poco strisciando
Si potrebbe trattare di bisogno d'amore
Meglio non dire

E tu
E noi
E lei
Fra noi
Vorrei
Non so
Che lei
O no

Ancora Tu

(Lucio Battisti cover / Mi Senti EP)

Ancora tu
Non mi sorprende lo sai
Ancora tu
Ma non dovevamo vederci più

E come stai
Domanda inutile
Stai come me
E ci scappa da ridere

Amore mio
Ha già mangiato o no
Ho fame anch'io
E non soltanto di te

Che bella sei
Sembri più giovane
O forse sei
Solo più simpatica

Oh lo so
Sosa tu vuoi sapere
Nessuna no
Ho solo ripreso a fumare

Sei ancora tu
Purtroppo l'unica
Ancora tu
L'incorreggibile

Ma lasciarti non è possibile
No lasciarti non è possibile
Lasciarti non è possibile
No lasciarti non è possibile
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Sei ancora tu
Purtroppo l'unica
Ancora tu
L'incorreggibile

Ma lasciarti non è possibile
No lasciarti non è possibile
Lasciarti non è possibile
No lasciarti non è possibile

Disperazione gioia mia
Sarò ancora tuo
Sperando che non sia follia
Ma sia quel che sia
Abbracciami amore mio
Abbracciami amor mio
Che adesso lo voglio anch'io

Ancora tu
Non mi sorprende lo sai
Ancora tu
Ma non dovevamo vederci più

E come stai
Domanda inutile
Stai come me
E ci scappa da ridere

Ancora tu
Purtroppo l'unica
Ancora tu
L'incorreggibile

In Sintensi

In sintesi, ti adoro
Se le mode vanno e vengono
Io sempre ti amerò
In sintesi
In sintesi

Sintetizzare vuol dire realizzare
Sintetizzare vuol dire realizzare
Sintetizzare vuol dire realizzare
Sintetizzare vuol dire realizzare
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Sintetizzi i miei pensieri
Crei una realtà
Fa effetto sognare con te
Quella sola realtà
Quella sola realtà

In sintesi, ti adoro
Se le mode vanno e vengono
Io sempre ti amerò
In sintesi
In sintesi

Non Credere

(Mina Mazzini cover / Mi Senti EP)

Oh no, no
Non crederle
Non gettare nel vento
In un solo momento
Quel che esiste fra noi

No, no, no, ascoltami
Tu per lei sei un giocattolo
Il capriccio di un attimo
E per me sei la vita

Se lei ti amasse io
Se lei ti amasse io
Saprei soffrire e anche morire
Pensando a te
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Oh ma non ti ama, no
Lei non ti ama, no
Ed io non voglio vederti morire per lei

No, no, no
Non crederle
Non gettare nel vento
In un solo momento
Per quel che esiste fra noi

Se lei ti amasse io
Se lei ti amasse io
Saprei soffrire e anche morire
Pensando a te

Ma non ti ama, no
Lei non ti ama, no
Ed io non voglio vederti morire per lei

Ma non ti ama, no
Lei non ti ama, no
Ed io non voglio vederti morire per lei

La Gatta

(Gino Paoli cover / Mi Senti EP)

C'era una volta una gatta
Che aveva una macchia nera sul muso
E una vecchia soffitta vicino al mare
Con una finestra a un passo dal cielo blu

Se la chitarra suonavo
La gatta faceva le fusa
Ed una stellina scendeva vicina, vicina
Poi mi sorrideva e se ne tornava su
Oh no, copy paste again, I'm always on the run forever
Ora non abito più là
Tutto è cambiato, non abito più là
Ho una casa bellissima
Bellissima come vuoi tu

Ma ho ripensato a una gatta
Che aveva una macchia nera sul muso
E una vecchia soffitta vicino al mare
Con una stellina che ora non vedo più

Ora non abito più là
Tutto è cambiato, non abito più là
Ho una casa bellissima
Bellissima come vuoi tu

Hairless Toys 

Gone Fishing

An uncommon sense
Close to abandonment

Learning, discerning
The difference between do or die

Each step taken away from
A place of hopelessness

Takes me closer
To building another kind of family nest

There is no inclusion for those stigmatised
Nobody close to us ever recognised
Only exclusion for us, out there
Only delusional fuss and despair
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
An uncommon sense
So beautifully dressed
In a moment of realness
I fear I could be fearless

Destitute out on my own
I had to run this far from home
The children of the damaged and unkind

My new friends are like-minded
It's a mechanism of surviving this
The children of God, the children of LaBeija

Found a place to express my soul
Won't go on living in shadow's hold
So I'm going to the ball to get my prize

Expensive things are the cheapest thrill
There is no such thing as overkill
Will we live on, the children of LaBeija

There is no inclusion for those stigmatised
Nobody close to us ever recognised
Only exclusion for us, out there
Only delusional fuss and despair

If Paris is burning
Then just let it burn
The youth are very discerning
Till you tear them apart

You can't stop the children
It's easy to mock
This form of survival instinct
Why should I stop

And uncommon sense
So beautifully dressed
My mama's mistake
My father's heartbreak

Young birds who are flightless
Become birds of paradise
And the practice of realness
Feels so surreal


Evil Eyes

The where I've been
And the things I've seen
Well I just try remembering
That in their dreams those Kings and Queens
Are feeling just the way I feel

Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
My wish come true
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
I'm moving up to pastures new
To see it all again anew
It's always and forever true
That this is all I have to do
To get to you

Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
My spell on you

Hocus
Hocus-pocus
Out of the realm of a dark material

Opus
New modus
Can't describe adequately
This ethereal dream

Making love is only make-believe
It's possible to be achieved
If you're brave enough to take the lead
Invention always follows need

I have come to claim my prize
To kiss you on your tired eyes
My hopes and dreams are realised
The moment I made up my mind

Focus
If I just focus
If I superstitiously believe
This wish will come true
I wish for you

Evil eye
I'll keep you by my side
This evil eye
Has powers I require

Your strange magic may
Keep you from harm's way
I've witnessed, Eye
Its mystery at play

I'm gonna put those demons in their place
(Get to know 'em)
I'm gonna slap myself across the face
(Above and below 'em)
I gotta face my demons or be damned
(Fear and loathing)
The devil's work is made by idle hands
(Coming and going)

I'm gonna put those demons in their place
(Get to know 'em)
I'm gonna slap myself across the face
(Above and below 'em)
I gotta face my demons or be damned
(Fear and loathing)
The devil's work is made by idle hands
(Coming and going)
I'm gonna put those demons in their place

Hocus
Hocus-pocus
Cast a spell and hope to hell
The Gods are listening

Ipsis
Calling Oris
Out of the heavens we fell
With the formula

Come true

Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
Aji maji la taraji
My wish come true


Exploitation

(Headphones)

If you'd lend me your ears
This is a so called true story
We had the time of our lives
Stirring up clouds of scandal
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
Freedom, the ultimate freedom
Then the bomb shell hit, a fiasco

Who
Who's exploiting who
I just don't know who, who, who
Who's exploiting who

Never underestimate
Creative people
And the depths that they will go

No limits
Cruising at high speed
Ain't that feeling
You and I know well

So let the sparks fly
You and I collide
Ticking like a time-bomb
Till I receive your reply

Who
Who's exploiting who
Won't you tell me who, who, who
Who's exploiting who
I just don't know who

Who's exploiting who
Won't you tell me who, who, who
Who's exploiting who
I just don't know who

You're losing your aura
Of invincibility
And your self-effacing modesty

You should leave the money and run
You son of a gun
Or we could go down fighting
Who's exploiting who

Who
Who's exploiting who
Won't you tell me who, who, who
Who's exploiting who
I just don't know who

I don't see it as amusement
Who's exploiting who
The price isn't right
I just don't know who, who, who
Who's exploiting who
I believe in it

Who
The lap of luxury
Who's exploiting who
Assumptions are now being questioned
I just don't know who, who
Who's exploiting who
How do you hold your head up high
I just don't know who
Who's exploiting who
The pleasure is all ours
Won't you tell me who, who, who
Who's exploiting who


Uninvited Guest

I am walking the streets
I am wandering aimlessly
I can see that it's all for sale
And it saddens me

All alone and it looks like everyone else is busy
All avoiding eye contact with me

I could be well-dressed
Even on the money I've left
I could buy another day of nothing
Even in my best
I'm an uninvited guest
Waste another day on nothing
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
I could get out of my head
Even on the money I've left
I could buy another day of nothing
Even in my best
I'm an uninvited guest
Lost another day of nothing

I've been walking the streets
It's another purposeless day
I am far from the reasons
It took to pass this way

I am haunted by thoughts
I am daunted by things to do
And people to see
Catch my eye, passerby
Before I pass through

I could be well-dressed
Even on the money I've left
I could buy another day of nothing
Even in my best
I'm an uninvited guest
Waste another day on nothing

I could get out of my head
Even on the money I've left
I could buy another day of nothing
I could never quite forget
I'm an uninvited guest

I keep wondering
Aimlessly
Until that flickering
Moment of intensity
A familiar stranger
Will recognise me
Will glance my way
See something in me

I keep on wondering
Aimlessly
Until that flickering
Moment of intensity
A familiar stranger
Will recognise me
Will glance my way
See something in me

I keep on wondering
Aimlessly
Until that flickering
Moment of intensity
A familiar stranger
Will recognise me
Will see something in me

Well to see something
Here in the world
Time maybe curved by a word

I could be well-dressed
Even on the money I've left
I could buy another day of nothing
Even in my best
I'm an uninvited guest
Waste another day on nothing

I could get out of my head
Even on the money I've left
I could buy another day of nothing
I could never quite forget
I'm an uninvited guest
Lost another day of nothing

Not sure how I'm going to survive
Survival
Don't know if this is living a life
Worthwhile

Not sure if I have even arrived
On arrival, I'm tired
Not sure if I'm ready to laugh or to cry


Exile

You know if you let me
I'll be back with a vengeance
I'm only too happy
In our codependence
You know me

You know if you let me
I'll be back with a vengeance
Only too happy in our codependence

Exiled
Exiled from your love
I fear

The sun is shining
And the water is clear
I'm staring out as a blank, blue sky
The perfect canvas for a sullen mind

In exile
Banished from your love
I fear
It's a beautiful place
But cold at night

A shipwreck, abandoned
I'm lonely on the island
It was each man for himself
In the end

The crashing waves you're under
You think you'll drown, you think you'll
Lose your fight against the sea
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
Brave men
Good men each
Have come to meet their end

Oh, can you see me
Sitting here
All alone
I'd face another hurricane
To get back home


House Of Glass

We were glasshouse girls
In our plastic wigs and furs
In a crazy house
From within and from without

You coud see right through
See the things that people do
There's no place to hide
When you're lit from the inside

Overblown

People like us
From broken homes
Never throw stones
Leave us alone

We were glasshouse girls
Full of joie de vivre and verve
Built a house of glass
Out of fragments from the blast
When it's all revealed
Must be seen to be believed
Little raincoat sister
When allowed to dream
Made a new reality

People who live in glass houses know

Every glasshouse girl
Keeps a secret from the world
What you think you see
A naive transparency
On a stage of glass
How long can the play last
You see, every glasshouse child
Has a troubling side
Overblown

Little pieces of a broken dream
Scattered in a million different places
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
People who live in glass houses
People who live in glass houses know

Overblown
What you think you see
A naive transparency
On a stage of glass
How long can the play last


Hairless Toys (Gotta Hurt)

That's got to hurt
Won't you admit
There were injustices
Along the way

That's got to hurt
However poignantly
Don't let them laugh at me
Or laugh at you

That's got to hurt
These things you should tell
Why should you justify
Hmm

That's got to hurt
You handled it perfectly
But I see the hurting
There in your eyes

That's got to hurt
Won't you admit
There were injustices

That's got to hurt
However poignantly
Don't let them laugh at me
Or laugh at you

Can I say I'm sorry if I have
Spoken out of turn
Reckless
Feckless
Careless talk
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
That's got to hurt
Won't you admit
There were injustices
Along the way
That's got to hurt
However poignantly
Don't let them laugh at me
Or laugh at you

That's got to hurt
Things you should tell to me
Why should you justify
Deep down inside

That's got to hurt
You handled it perfectly
The fact that you're hurting me
Comes as no surprise
That's got to hurt

Don't be offended
It was not my intention
Oh to put you down
Your shoulder's always
Been there to cry on
And it's got to hurt

Can I say I'm sorry if I have
Spoken out of turn
(Please forget it)
Reckless
(I regret it)
Feckless
(Should have never)
Careless
(Ever said it)

Unputdownable

A quiet place to sit
A little light to see
Some time to read
Is really all I need

You're unputdownable
A story so confounding
The pages turn so easily

You are my favourite book
And I like to spend my time
I'm fully occuplied
Reading betweet the lines

You're unputdownable
A plot that's so unpredictable
That I read on compulsively

Well I'm left in confusion
By your epilogue
Where is the conclusion
Our narrative arc

Well it's just been enthralling
Disbelief's suspended
On time standing still
Copy paste is bad, I'm always on the run
No myth or fairy tale
Will ever be quite the same
No moral to the story
You only go down in a blaze of glory

You're unputdownable
A fable so fantastical
I've learned to ready voraciously

And when at last I come to the end
I turn back to page one and again
Pour over every word
Beautiful and absurd

You're unputdownable
A story so astounding
Could only be the truth you see

Well I don't like intrusions
And if I had my way
I'd close the door behind me
And they'd all melt away
I'd open up the book and
Climb right out of this time

If you'd let me
If you'd be so kind
If you'd allow me
To read your mind

If you'd let me
If you'd be so kind
If you'd allow me
To read your mind

To read your mind
To read your mind
To read your mind
To read your mind
To read your mind
To read your mind

Take Her Up To Monto

Mastermind

It all came down to that one night in question
Intentionally I believe my demise was my own stupid invention
With wide open eyes, I said goodbye to the guys and set sail for my destruction
I was functioning then as I'm functioning now, way below my potential
You copy you paste you lose
Scared out of my mind
Going inside without too much hesitation
Rendered defenceless at the slightest hint or suggestion
I'm petrified, and I'm fucked if I do, and I'm fucked if I don't
Accept defeat and kiss the feet of oblivion
I've waited for too long for something wrong
Somewhat expectantly

And I told myself lies if I'm lying around
And it don't trickle down in the same direction
I was reckless to dissolve at your resolve
To make an object of attraction
But dissatisfaction pushed me over a cliff edge
And there will be no cold retraction
But I crossed the room with every knowledge of your cold
But I hope that I could make a spun without it catching up on

I'll go
With your master plan
I'll be putty in your hands
You're the mastermind

Inevitably
I will float down river
It's a foregone conclusion
I will be delivered
Straight into your hands
For you to have your way
Easy come and go
Easily led astray

It's too easy
Say it, say it
It's just like taking candy from a baby

I'm easy
Go on say it
Put my hand
Right into the mouth of danger

Baby, I'm ready to give in to the night
It's in the liquid that we take to elevate
Are you coming to find me, or waiting up till I'm dead
The kindness kills an act of will, but we'll always fall in line
Don't hesitate, they make you purger what you say
There is no mastermind
There's no mastermind

Pretty Gardens

Here I am, as you made me, telling barefaced lies
Look at me all naked, I let my pretty garden grow wild
It's free to look upon me and see the tears I cried
This is me with no makeup, falling like a fool out of pride

You seem to like an asymmetric body
You're smiling at my crooked smile
I never thought that I was perfect in the fucking first place
I'm alright in your eyes
You copy you paste you lose
I just want you to look upon me, and see the good inside
What do you see when you look upon me, telling barefaced lies
Naturally I'm not a blondie, not every hair is dyed

All stripped back
Bare, clean scrubbed face
Sliding out of place
You made me feel
I could be an honest lass
Just like in the past

Any lingering doubt about your love is just irrelevant now
At the worst of my worst you didn't leave me, are all my imperfections allowed
You're a fool to always forgive me and see the good inside
It was cruel to make you feel guilty when I let me pretty garden grow wild

Told barefaced lies
Tried to hide behind the dishonesty
Made a mockery when my life was blessed
With a lazy eye and a crooked smile

These things now are superfluous, would be perfectless
Looking straight at me, there's no symmetry
Even getting dressed
There's a lazy eye

So I'll be brave, I'll stay here to face myself
Looking straight at me, there's no symmetry
There's a lazy eye, and a crooked smile

No artifice to this, just an honest kiss
Looking straight at me, there's no symmetry
There's a lazy eye, and a crooked smile

Thoughts Wasted

Don't call me up wasted
Senselessly jabbering on
Don't talk to me like that
You're picking me up all wrong

You came to your conclusions
And I will come to mine
I know all about your opinions
But I'd rather hear you cry

Don't hide your emotions
So twisted up inside
Don't you call me up so wasted
Don't talk to me when you're high
You copy you paste you lose
I can't seem to get in, a word in edgeways
Sounds like you forget it, the things that you say
I just want to let the love in edgeways
So I'm going to wait until you come to your senses
I know, I know, I know
I've heard it all and a million times before
And if you've something new to add

Running away with themselves
Galloping on
At an impossible speed
Like nothing is wrong
Hurtling into space
You're too far gone
You better be off your face

Running away with themselves
Galloping on
At an impossible speed
Like nothing is wrong
Hurtling into space
You're too far gone

Seething, a quiver of cobras has a vitality
An intimate enemy, resentment, a lounge of dragons
Like mold, resentment grows
Unforgiveable, there is no way to be good
There's simply a million ways to be more or less bad
He had to find religion to measure his evil against
Too much information, too much time has passed
Too much history

Humans are fucked, a smack of jellyfish
So complex, even the most simple of us
Needing one another
In the wake of resentment
Only broken hearts, shattered souls

Lip Service

Word, haven't you heard
I told the world you're a perfect gentleman
It shows and everyone knows
But I suppose I could shout it out again
You copy you paste you lose
Can't stop bigging you up
Telling the world that you're my world, you are my king

Sure, I want you to know that I love you so
'Cause it's like everyone knows but you

And no, it won't be too long
Before I write a song and dedicate it to boo-boo
And I'll mention again that you're a swell
Hell of a guy, so strong and true

These lips are in your service
It's sooner than you deserve
I will spend a lifetime on it
Never find the word to ???

I hope I don't embarrass you
Sharing the special things you do
But if I don't, I'll burst with joy
Never been known to be coy

If I said it once, it's been a million times
You are the object of my lip service
My homage to you

How can I explain, what can I say, and somehow not go all the way
If you don't know by now that you hold the power, then you will sometime today
Love, you don't seem to know, I'm making a show of myself to make a point
Fine, it's all in brown (?), when I get the talk I write endless lines about you
Then I still understand, try to explain all of the things I vaguely knew
I keep bigging you up, and I won't give up until you understand it's true
I see everyone now, but my little boy is just a [?]

Glazing over
They heard it all before
My lips are in your service for now

Ten Miles High

Let's ride ten miles up
Just inside the stratosphere
More sky, more blue jets
Stream by, you're gonna love it here

Let's fly ten miles up
Just outside the atmosphere
We'll climb oh straight up
Set aside irrational fear
You copy you paste you lose
Goodbye, oh to a cruel world
Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth
Or be bound by the hurt in your
Blue eyes, oh for a brave new world
Out in the starry skies, our paradise, found

And as we rise so far above
Our little lights in miniature
Believe your eyes can be transfixed
Knock, knock, knock it down, your heavenly door

(One mile into ascent, something's pulling me back)
One mile in, it keeps pulling me back
(???)
Have you got to ever leave?

(Five miles higher now, no turning back)
Higher now, there's no turning back
(Ten miles gone in the blink of an eye)
Gone in the blink of an eye

Goodbye, oh to a cruel world
Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth
Or be bound by the hurt in your
Blue eyes, oh for a brave new world
Out in the starry skies, our paradise, found

Lift me off the ground
Then I look down
Sing a sad goodbye
The city is a toy town
Left the law behind
Straight up for miles
Or you can hang down
An alternative never given very much for you
Never be ten miles high

Know the divine right by your side
Come fill your eyes with its majesty
The tears you'll cry, and the ones you missed
Leave it all behind, and come with me

Goodbye, cruel world
Never again will I ever be grounded on Earth
Or be bound by the hurt in your
Blue eyes, brave new world
Out in the starry skies, our paradise, found

Whatever

Whatever floats your boat's your lifestyle choices
You take a little coke, and ride wild horses
But when I talk to you, I don't hear voices

I get a little life as if by proxy
I shouldn't be surprised you'd try and stop me
Forever it's real for you, not for me

I am a broken man
And I won't make a fuss
I will be gone
Live while you miss me
My love
You copy you paste you lose
In writing from the edge, your correspondent
He won't let you forget that he's despondent
But you're unavailable for any comment

Just livin' for the day of our next encounter
I never found a way to live without her
I'm sorry to say it, I know it's a downer

The provocation of desire's often mundane
Never complain
Never explain
My love

Romantic Comedy

Only we two are in on it
In on every in-joke going between you and me
Stupid romantic comedy
Isn't it a tragedy, nobody gets out of bed

Laughter at the memory
Smiling at the thought your face was a picture
Funny the way you spoke about it
If we don't get serious, jokingly into bed
I'm afraid I'm all alone if you don't get this joke of mine
It's not funny anymore

It's much, much to sad
You'd have to laugh
Crowds of people pressed together
I can remember your smile forever

Laughing at ourselves, laughing at the world
It's hilarious, it really cracks me up
Laughing at myself, laughing at us
Laughing at the world, it really cracks me up

Joking, I'm the reality
Taking it too serious, how could you laugh in my face
Cupid is a comedian
Leaving me here bleeding, leaving me bleeding to death

Hoping that the hilarity
Activates a gravity bringing me back down to Earth
I'm afraid I'm all alone if you don't get this joke of mine
Stupid romantic comedy
Isn't it a tragedy, nobody gets out of bed

It's much, much to sad
You'd have to laugh
Crowds of people pressed together
I can remember his smile forever
You copy you paste you lose
Maybe I'm not that funny girl anymore
We had a whole lot of laughs
Looks like you heard all my stupid jokes somewhere before
And we could leave it there
Maybe I ain't got such a funny face after all
I'm not your funny girl
Humour is down to a time and place, the timing is off

Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to be
Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to laugh out loud
Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to laugh out loud
Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to laugh out loud
Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to laugh out loud
Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to laugh out loud
Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to laugh out loud
Laugh out loud, laugh out loud, laugh out loud at me
I want you to laugh out loud
I want you to laugh out loud
I want you to

Nervous Sleep

We're lost
Our fuel is very low
And yet she keeps asking if I
Love her so
When now is clearly
Not the time
And there's far more pressing issues
On my mind

Now is not the time
Now is not the time for this
I can't do this
I won't do this
Getting us out of here
I can't do this
On my own

We're way too far up
This mountainside
And if the car breaks down
I'll have you to ride

Now is not the time
Now is not the time for this

"What about me?"
What about you?
"What about me?"
She seemed weak
"I'm a person too."
You copy you paste you lose
I'm scared
??? seen another person on this road in days
You're just makin' me more nervous
And I'm driving in ???
I ??? a blessed necessity
Oh but she grew bored and restless
A twisted empress
Would not let me be
Unreasonably

She said, "What about me?"
Yeah, what about you?
"I'm a person too
What about me?"

She ??? and she's sighing so loudly
And ??? that she is irritating me
When she does sleep, she talks and mutters
And she ???

Now is not the time or place
Would you give a damn

She said, "Baby, do you love me?"
Baby
"Baby, do you need me?"
Baby
"Do you want me, do you?"

Baby, please stop whining in my ear
I have a lot on my mind
??? pressure
"Baby, do you need me?
Baby, do you need me?"
???
You would shut up if you really love me
That you really love me

"Baby, do you love me?
Baby, do you need me?
Do you wanna kiss me?
Will you kiss me, baby?
Can you show me, please
That you love me?
That you really love me?"

"Baby, do you love me?
Do you need me?"
"Baby, do you love me?
Baby, do you need me?
Do you wanna kiss me?
Will you kiss me, baby?
Can you show me, please
That you love me?"

"What about me?
I'm a person too
What about me?"

"Hey, what about me?
What about me?
I'm a person too
I'm a person too
What about me?"

"Hey, what about me?
I'm a person
I'm a person
I'm a person too
What about me?"

Sitting and Counting

Who's better than you getting the better of me
Oh, now I say this is how it's gonna be
I adore you, you're so many fantasies come true

They say you get what you wish for
I did a lot of wishing
I never dreamed, I never dared hope that
In fact, I believed my fantasies
Too complex, too bold

Sittin' on a town
Counting the ways to fade
Oh, just sittin' around
Counting the ways to fade away
You copy you paste you lose
Sittin' on a town
Counting the waves rolling in
Sittin' around
Preaching here that

We have absolutely no excuse
We may let it all pass by
We have lingered on our goodbye
We will be there when love dies

Hold on
At least to a thread of it
It's not all gone
Hold on
I gave you the rest of it
It's not all wrong

You can go from very right to very wrong

Non Albums Tracks

Alternate State

(Hot Nature feat. Roisin Murphy / Different Sides Of The Sun LP)

Before it's too late and I hesitate
Remember I came from a small town
I guess I'd have to say I'm still running away
From the old mentality
From a mode of thinking

You opened my eyes
Opened my mind
Got a new point of view now, baby
And it's all about you

All the things I've always thought
Have all come to naught
Got a new perception, yeah
Almost a new reflection

I used to be afraid to fly
I'm still a little scared of darkness

I used to be afraid to fly
I'm still a little scared of darkness
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Just follow the sound
Guess I got around
On my own initiative
But there was something missing

An alternate state
Alternative ways
Uncovering new sensation, yeah
Discover my true potential

Opening doors
Breaking down walls
'Til there's no glass ceiling on
It's the only feeling

Got out of there fast
I ran from the past
Some pieces of me got left behind
And something will always be there

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

Dance For The Lights

(The Feeling feat. Roisin Murphy / Together We Were Made LP)

Tell me are the crazy clothes
A cry for help
I think I'd like you if you'd smile
But you don't smile

Stand aside and count your motions
Keeping to yourself
It's just a waste of time
Don't waste my time

Ooh just dance
Dance like you dance when you love someone
Dance like you dance when you love someone
And if you've got no one, just look above your pretty head
And dance for the lights, for the lights, for the lights

Dance like you dance when you love someone
Dance like you dance when you love someone
And if you've got no one, just look above your pretty head
And dance for the lights, for the lights, for the lights

Turn me down again, I'll come back
Turn me down, you think you hurt me
But you're wrong
It turns me on

No one gets to shine forever
No one gets to change the weather
Gonna sing until it stops raining
And when it stops we'll

Dance like you dance when you love someone
Dance like you dance when you love someone,
And if you've got no one, just look above your pretty head
And dance for the lights, for the lights, for the lights

Dance like you dance when you love someone
Dance like you dance when you love someone,
And if you've got no one, just look above your pretty head
And dance for the lights, for the lights, for the lights

You've got that look again in your eyes
The lights are in your, the lights are in your eyes
The lights are in your eyes
The lights are in your, the lights are in your eyes
The lights are in your eyes

Dance like you dance when you love someone
Dance like you dance when you love someone
And if you've got no one, just look above your pretty head
And dance for the lights, for the lights, for the lights

Dance like you dance when you love someone
Dance like you dance when you love someone
And if you've got no one, just look above your pretty head
And dance for the lights, for the lights, for the lights

Dance like you dance when you love someone
Dance like you dance when you love someone
And if you've got no one just look above your pretty head
And dance for the lights, for the lights, for the lights
For the lights

Don't You Agree

(David Byrne & Fatboy Slim feat. Róisín Murphy / Here Lies Love LP)

With my heart and with my skin
From town to town and back again
With my skin and with my soul
How each one smiles when he's alone

And here we are — convention center
Traveled so far — crossed many rivers
No time to rest — no time to sleep
Keep moving on — my tired feet

Sometimes we need a hero
Can't make it on our own
Sometimes you need a strong man
When things are out of control

Don't you agree? Agree with me
Don't you agree? Don't you agree?
Don't you agree? Agree with me
Don't you agree? Don't you agree?

Who needs a chair? Whose roof has leaks?
Their childre's names, what each one needs
Got my people everywhere
The bellboys and the operators

Now who stood up to the Japanese?
Who cares about the Philippines?
He'll build a house — I'll decorate
I'm telling all you delegates

Don't you agree? Agree with me
Don't you agree? Don't you agree?
Don't you agree? Agree with me
Don't you agree? Don't you agree?

Sometimes we need a hero
Can't make it on our own
Sometimes you need a strong man
When things are out of control

Don't you agree? Agree with me

Don't you agree? Agree with me
Don't you agree? Don't you agree?
Don't you agree? Agree with me
Don't you agree? Don't you agree?
(Don't you agree?)

Don't you agree? (Don't you agree?) Agree with me (Agree with me)
Don't you agree? Don't you agree? (Don't you agree?)
Don't you agree? (Don't you agree?) Agree with me (Agree with me)
Don't you agree? Don't you agree? (Don't you agree?)

Don't you agree? Agree with me
Don't you agree? Don't you agree?
Don't you agree? (Don't you agree?) Agree with me (Agree with me)
Don't you agree? (Don't you agree?) Agree with me (Agree with me)
Don't you agree? (Don't you agree?) Agree with me (Agree with me)

Feel Up

(Grace Jones cover / Spook feat. Roisin Murphy / Feel Up EP)

Feel up that

And you have a dream
But your dream's not real
You don't give up
You've been enough

You said you're the man
But you're just a boy
Don't play with me
Like you play with toys

And you have a dream
But your dreams are not real
You don't give up
You've been enough

You said you're the man
But you're just a boy
Don't play with me

And you're just sixteen
I'm two times that
Tell me what's your momma
Gonna think about that

You're gonna think and talk
Much more have fun
You're gonna think and walk
Why try to run

You're just sixteen
I'm two times that
Tell me what's your momma
Gonna think about that

You're gonna think and talk
Much more have fun
You're gonna think and walk
Why try to run

Feel up…

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

Flash Of Light

(Luca C & Brigante feat. Roisin Murphy)

No, you won't be coming down
You'll fall asleep and never be coming round
You say your last goodbye
No, you won't be coming down

No, we won't be late
Will you make me wait
When there's so little time
Like a dying star, a fireball
Made the orange sky

Take me down to the edge of here
Take me now, I know what ready is
And I'm running to the sound

Counting down to the end of the end game
The sands of time are running out
Take me down, I don't wanna live
With an ordinary, ordinary sky
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
One last flash of brilliance
One more blinding light
The last dead beat descendants
We're going into the night

The last time I held you
I held you so tight
But I want
One last flash of brilliance
One more night to thrill you
Well, I ask one last
Flash of light

Well, I ask one last
Flash of light

Foolish

(b-side from the single 'overpowered')

It was only yesterday
The silence broke
Of everything in every way
The silence spoke
It was on a night like this one
I heard it say
Just about any kind of anything
To make me stay

Oh foolish
Harmless
Foolish, harmless child
The body is timeless
You can't climb this
Stare after golden sky would stare

There is never any remedy
For what we've got
Just memories of memories
Too soon forgot
With every kind of ecstasy
Is what you get
Every rose upon a thorn we see
We soon regret

Oh foolish
Harmless
Foolish, harmless child
The body is timeless
You can't climb this
Stare after golden sky would stare

Oh foolish
Harmless
Foolish, harmless child
The body is timeless
You can't climb this
Stare after golden sky would stare

I'm in love and it's childs play baby
Found a door to another world
And if you don't wanna make it make sense
Any a fool will take you there

And if you don't wanna make it make sense
And if you don't wanna make it make sense

Oh foolish
Harmless
Foolish, harmless child
The body is timeless
You can't climb this
Stare after golden sky would stare

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

Golden Era

( With Davis Morales )

Is this my world disappearing
I can't believe just what I'm seeing
And if you go where does that leave me
I can't change the way you keep on changing
I used to love the ways you love me
I was happy with the way things used to be
You only love the way it could be
But I can't change the way you keep on changing

I gotta change the way I'm living
Rearrange the way I give the love I'm giving
Or is it really gone forever
We can find a way to keep it all together

Don't suppose you ever miss me
'Cause to you it's all just ancient history
To you it's just the same old story
Another fairy tail made of faded glory

There was a time and a place
Now it's hauling to waste of those glorious days
We will remain the sweetest refrain
In the blast of the past in those glory days

You took your twelve steps away
Took the life and solar on my party
And it won't add up to be exactly as you say
When I can remember us in our hay day

If you ever think of staging a comeback
Honey believe I'm ready to runback
I live in a state of high anxiety
I guess you change the world before you'll ever change me

There was a time and a place
Now it's hauling to waste of those glorious days
We will remain the sweetest refrain
in the blast of the past in those glory days

Is this my world disappearing
Is this the end we are nearing
And I feel it, It's only getting nearer
Is this the end of a golden era

Hold Up Your Hand

(Crookers feat. Roisin Murphy / Tons Of Friends LP)

So it might be true
That the big fat moon
Is a helium balloon
(Shock)

And we might just prove
It's only painted blue
And it's floating down, down, down

As a theory goes
It was all a hoax
Those dirty, dirty lying astronauts
(Shock)

Never left the ground
Just hanging around
In a studio in Hollywood

Built a great white ?
Speak directly to my brain
What kind of sucker am I supposed to be today

And I'm in a smaller mood than you this morning
Do I always have to wake up
With the new day dawning
(Shock)

And I do what I'm told
And hear what you're saying
And swallow it whole
Am I (?) what you're playing

Baby, I know the game
Baby, I know the theory
If it doesn't add up
You're not thinking clearly

Infraction of light
It's a trick of the lock
It’s all an illusion
A practical fact
In the heat of the night
In all this confusion

Hold up your hand
Hold up your hand
Hold up your hand
You made a mistake
Should have left it to me

They told us the future would be
Taken in hand
Nice little blueprint but the flaw
The flaw's in the plan

And then you say there's never been
'Cause never ever and ever and ever…

Hold up your hand
Hold up your hand
You made a mistake
Should have left it to me

Hold up your hand
Hold up your hand
You made a mistake
Should have left it to me

Hold up your hand
Hold up your hand
You made a mistake
Should have left it to me

Hold up your hand
Hold up your hand
You made a mistake
Should have left it to me

Invisions

(Luca C & Brigante feat. Róisín Murphy)

Yeah

Hey (yeah)
Hey
Hey
Hey

Why
Why do I waste my time
Why do I even try
Create a vision of the future

The fall
I can see empires fall
Then I look into my crystal ball
Crazy visions of the future

In my mind
There's a movie showing in my mind
It's the saddest story of all time
Fading vision of the future

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Yeah, y-yeah

Hey (yeah)
Hey

Well, don't bring me down
The thoughts that just go round and round
We could lose the love I thought we found
In this vision of the future

I'm always blue
Thinking the worst of you
And I don't want to feel that blue
A crazy vision of the future

Tonight
Tonight I'm gonna hold on tight
To the love we have and make up right
In the vision of the future

Invisions
Crazy visions of the future
I cannot live in
The time I've spent with you
Gotta stop these visions coming true

Accept these visions
In versions of the future
I think I have to give in
And see what love can do
Gotta stop these visions coming true

Invisions
Gotta stop these visions coming
Gotta stop these visions coming true
Invisions
Gotta stop these visions coming
Gotta stop these visions coming true, yeah
Invisions
Gotta stop these visions coming
Gotta stop these visions coming true

Gotta stop these visions coming
Gotta stop these visions coming true, yeah

Jealousy (House Mix)

This is the darker side
Of a beautiful feeling
Born out of chemistry
And the tangle of needing
Watch while you sleep
I'm the one who is dreaming
Oh there'll be jealousy
There'll be jealousy, baby
There'll be jealousy, baby

Jealousy...

But I'm not
The possessive kind
No, no, oh no
I never blame
The jealous type

You, you dominate my mind
Oh yes, you know you do
Oh yes, you know you do
You, you dominate my mind
Oh yes, you know you do

But I'm not the jealous kind
Oh no, I'm not the jealous type
The jealous kind

Jealousy...

Far from the mad and proud
Something's stirring within me
Might as well let it lie
Let the feeling consume me
Twisted and compromised
Yet I'm loving you truly
Oh there'll be jealousy
There'll be jealousy, baby

But I've pushed you
Way above the line
Oh yes, I have
I've never been
So out of my mind
No, no, oh no

You, you can't just let this slide
I know it's only one
I must've been the jealous type
Oh yeah, guess I'm the jealous kind
The jealous type
The jealous kind
The jealous kind

Jealousy...

Leviathan

(Freeform Five feat. Róisín Murphy)

One big idea is needed to save you
Somebody to step up, a bold master plan
No use in dissolving, there'll be no absolving
In future, the future is in your hand
And to get it right, it's going to take all night
Might just find a way back to paradise lost
Tune in, don't tune out, we'll figure it all out
Make them pay, have your say, stop counting the costs

Do it yourself, you know you might just get it right or blow it
Do it yourself and if you get it wrong at least you know it
Do it yourself, you know you might just get it right or blow it
Do it yourself

(Do it yourself)
Do it yourself, you know you might just get it right or blow it
(Do it yourself)
Do it yourself and if you get it wrong at least you know it
(Do it yourself)
Do it yourself, you know you might just get it right or blow it
(Do it yourself)
Do it yourself

Out to defend them with wave of rebellion
Get wired into it, a positive charge
And to write a new hook we must take the rulebook
And set it on fire, won't it be allowed
Hold on to me tight, it's going to be alright
You can't find your way back, you took it too far
Love will console you if you let me hold you
One fine day have your way and ?

Do it yourself, you know you might just get it right or blow it
(Do it yourself)
Do it yourself and if you get it wrong at least you know it
Do it yourself, you know you might just get it right or blow it
(Do it yourself)
Do it yourself

The future is in your hand
The future is in your hand
Dissolving, absolving
The future is in your hand
Waiting, defend them
Tune out, rebellion
All night, on fire, won't it be allowed

Let all the walls I see
Come down on me
Let all the walls I see
Come tumbling down
All the walls I see (Leviathan)
Come down on me (no Leviathan)

Let all the walls I see (Leviathan)
Come down on me (no Leviathan)

Love in the making

( Sequins EP )

There’s no forsaking
This heart’s for breaking
All there for the taking
And are you waking?

Each man must stand alone
Walk alone along a road
Of his own making
Can’t turn your back
On your particular ending

Nobody can go with you
Nobody to hold onto you

Won’t you pick yourself up?
Dust yourself down
When you reach your
Particular gate
Well, it’ll all be over

It’ll get worse before
It’ll get better
But it will get better
You’ve got to look on the
Bright side
The same rules apply for me and you
As for anyone ever going through

There’s no forsaking
This heart’s for breaking
All there for the taking
It’s love in the making

Noon according to the sundial
Time has cast a shadow
i’ve yet to discover
What’s making me tick

There is liberation in
A simple acceptance
That there will be no
No liberation from,
No liberation from,
No liberation from,
No way to transcend this

There’s no forsaking
This heart’s for breaking
All there for the taking
And are you waking

Modern Timing

(B-side from the single 'overpowered')

Got to be a modern girl
To live inside a modern world

Oh this is super real
You need to find a lot of energy
For me
No it don't come free
Cause it's the creme-de-la-creme
And it's all right

Let's take a ride
Through the city, see it come to life, oh
Straight through the light
I'll be standing my ground
Till the light's out
(close the door)

Got to be a modern girl
To live inside a modern world
Always be calm, be cool and collected

Non-stop boogie, don't stop
Non-stop living, can't stop
Non-stop boogie, won't stop
Non-stop
Modern timing

Oh to be a modern girl

Mister laser-beam
I think we have a little chemistry between
It's a crazy scene
It's gotcha gotcha doing back flips for me
I take no side
I'll do anything i have to do to survive
This modern life's about taking control
New sensations take their toll

Got to be a modern girl
To live inside a modern world
Always be calm, be cool and collected

Non-stop boogie, don't stop
Non-stop living, can't stop
Non-stop boogie, won't stop
Non-stop
Modern timing

Non-stop boogie, don't stop
Non-stop living, can't stop
Non-stop boogie, won't stop
Non-stop

Momma's Place

So you think you know it all
But that's just the arrogance of youth
I've been there and I've done it, baby
I'm telling you the truth
Your Momma was a tear away
I used to think I knew it all
Thought I could play the game and not get played
No, but then the fall

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad
I used to be a real rough-hewn
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad
I used to be a real rough-hewn
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad

I bet you think I look respectable
You should've seen me in my prime
You'd have thought that I was headed for
Ih yeah, a life of crime
I bet you think that you're the clever one, clever one
The one that got away
Well, I've seen them come and seen them go
Oh yeah, but I have it made

I'm as sweet as I can be
I've earned respectability
Do you know I have a history
You won't get to pull the wool over my eyes
Fool, if you think you'll make a fool of me

Nothing you do remotely new
It all been done, when I was young
In younger days I went astray
You mighta say, it's all a haze
It's all been done, your brand new craze
It all begun at Momma's place

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad
I used to be a real rough-hewn
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad
I used to be a real rough-hewn
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad

Don't you go pull a fast one
I used to be an awful rascal
Do you think you invented being bad
I used to be a real rough-hewn
But had to become a tough one
Do you think you invented being bad

No at all
No, nothing at all

Never Enough

( Roisin Murphy with Boris Duglosch )

Do you belong to what you're hanging on to?
Are you caught in a loop?
What is wrong with you?
You keep making do

Have you given up on hope?
I could be your antidote
Are you lost in a state of anxiety?
Just let it be

Excuse me, please
I'm just so happy I could scream
Adjust your mindset, do the same
All that you lost will be regained

Never ever enough, its never enough
Is it ever enough, when its just enough?
If its never enough, why do we hang up on love?
Enough is enough, never enough

Never ever enough, its never enough
Is it ever enough, when its just enough?
If its never enough, why do we hang up on hope?
Enough is enough, never enough

Pure, we're pure as we're driven
But I know there's only one way to go
So dream, its just human kindness
If we run and we hide it will find us, theres nowhere to go

Excuse me please
I'm just so happy I could scream
Adjust your mindset, do the same
All that you lost will be regained

Never ever enough, it's never enough
Is it ever enough, when its just enough?
If it's never enough, why do we hang up on love?
Enough is enough, never enough

Never ever enough, it's never enough
Is it ever enough, when it's just enough?
If it's never enough, why do we hang up on love?
Enough is enough, never enough

I came forth to rest your fear
There to catch your falling tears
Begin and ending no more pretending
Try descending into me

When it comes to say goodbye
Say your final end desire
Well, enough is enough and youre hung up
Feel what you feel, baby

Never ever enough, it's never enough
Is it ever enough, when it's just enough?
If it's never enough, why do we hang up on love?
Enough is enough, never enough

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

Off And On

Now I can't get out
I'm trapped inside of it
I won't let go
Pain keeps driving it, I
I only hope and pray
That I can make you pay
Keep pushing, keep
I keep pushin' on

I did the best I could
I learned to sacrifice
I've got to make it work
This time away has done me good
It's a change from you

Keep switching me off and on and off and on and off
I've put myself back together
You've been gone too long beyond, the love is gone
You thought I could feel forever
Keep switching me off and on and off and on and off
I've put myself back together
You've been gone too long beyond, the love is gone
I've got my life back together

No, I can't turn back
I'm sick and tired of it
The love broke down
I've rewired it
I'm only human, babe
You let the feeling fade
Keep pushing
Till I've reached the other ground

I've tried to make it right
When every door was closed
Your love is all I had
I tried to make an honest man, o-o-oh
I refuse

Wired to the sun like a laser beam
Power serge, come feel the energy
And I'm letting it shine again

Keep switching me off and on and off and on and off
I've put myself back together
You've been gone too long beyond, the love is gone
You thought I could feel forever
Keep switching me off and on and off and on and off
I've put myself back together
You've been gone too long beyond, the love is gone
I've got my life back together

Orally Fixated

Eat me, eat me, eat me
Treat me, treat me, treat me
Eat me, eat me, eat me
Eat me, eat me, eat me
Eat me, eat me, eat me

Don't take my lollipop
You don't know how to line 'em up
And my baby's never satisfied
He always wants what I have got
He don't know when it's time to stop
And my baby's never been deprived

Out of house, out of home
When I should have known
I should've seen it in his eyes
Why can't you take a time out
Why don't you ever shut your mouth
I just can't stand to see you cry
When the last time you swore
And now you want more
You are a very hungry guy

Baby, you're orally fixated
You've got to give your mouth a rest
So greedy, I wish you could've waited
But you just have to stuff your face

Baby, you're orally fixated
You've got to give your mouth a rest
So greedy, I wish you could've waited
But you just have to stuff your face

What you see is what you get
'Cause I ain't got nothing left
At least not for a greedy little boy
It's what you came to expect
And I need time to reflect
Ain't you heard that sometimes less is more

My cupboard is bare
You're already there
I see through your dirty little ploy
How am I ever gonna fill you up
Never gonna, ever gonna fill your cup
You can't have your cake and eat it too
'Cause you never feel full
And frankly it's dull
Because it's always about you

Baby, you're orally fixated
You've got to give your mouth a rest
So greedy, I wish you could've waited
But you just have to stuff your face

Baby, you're orally fixated
You've got to give your mouth a rest
So greedy, I wish you could've waited
But you just have to stuff your face

Orally fixated
Never satiated
Orally fixated
Never satiated
Orally fixated
Never satiated
Orally fixated

Pandora

( Overpowered LP I-tunes Bonus Track )

Wanton play, she’s so vague and vogue
Another beauty beyond compare
Though I remain to be remade and remote
Don’t renege or disown me, babe

You let ‘em see you naked, girl
You let ‘em look inside
You never knew you were naked, girl
You didn’t need to hide

Not one expression on that face
Will ever give her game away
No more emotion, nor a trace
And so you beg for her to stay

Where does the love of Pandora
Not leave destruction in its wake

In her innocent way unafraid she will rise
On the crest of a wave tonight
That could imitate, but could never take the place
To be the only dream we had

You let ‘em see you naked, girl
You let ‘em look inside
You never knew you were naked, girl
You didn’t need to hide

Not one expression on that face
Will ever give her game away
No more emotion, nor a trace
And so you beg for her to stay

Where does the love of Pandora
Not leave destruction in its wake

You can’t fake ‘em on broken promises
And her beauty is plain
She won’t fade on written pages
Only altered the same

Not one expression on that face
Will ever give her game away
No more emotion, nor a trace
And so you beg for her to stay

Where does the love of Pandora
Not leave destruction in its wake

Ripples

( If We're In Love promo EP )

There, There
There, There
There, There
There, There, There may be
There, There, There may be

Only so much you can know
There may be
Only so far you can go
If you can't get
Only so much you can take, all for your own sake
Don't go without
Only so much you can take, before you stop
Feeling the pain (then it will be too late)
Nobody who has ever, will ever come prepared
My love will always take you, unawares

Just let it go, let it all go
Let me take you right back to zero
Because it's dark out here in the vagueness
Let me ask you this
(Could you let it show) Put it all on show
There's nothing left to lose
Just you follow me, follow me, follow
Down that one road left to choose

There, There
There, There
There, There
There, There

Into a vast lake, still as glass, pebbles are thrown
The ripples go on and on and
The ripples go on and on and on and

Could you let it go, let it all go
Let me take you right back to zero
'Cause it's vague out here in the darkness
Let me ask you this
(Could you let it show, let it all show)
'Cause there's only so much you can know
Just you follow me, follow me, follow
Down the one road right to choose

One road, left to choose

Butterfly beats the wings
Butterfly beats the wings
Butterfly beats the wings (Repeats)
(Ripples go on and..)

(Ripples go..)
Let it in, let it all in
(Butterfly beats...)
Just let it go let it all go (Let it go let it all go)
(Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly beats the wings)
(One road left to choose)

There
There

Royal T

(Crookers feat. Roisin Murphy / Tons Of Friends LP)

I can let you have
I can let you have
I can let you have
I can let you have your way

I can let you have
I can let you have
I can let you have
I can let you have your way
Have your way

I can let you have
I can let you have
I can let you have
I can let you have your way
Have your way

I can let you have
I can let you have
I can let you have your say
I can hear a warning if you can avoid it
I don't need to care too much

Any way you play with it
You can get away with it
I don't wanna cry no more
What I gotta take care for

And there's a truth untold
I would put it all on hold
Just for another hour in bed with you

So I'm gonna steal your flow
Baby, I can't let you go
Anytime you say so
Baby, I can let you know

I don't wanna here be alone
You don't have to use your charm
You don't have to break my arm
Sleeping does it always
I, I decide when I decide
I am in the mood right now

Baby, baby
I don't wanna here be alone
You don't have to use your charm
You don't have to break my arm
Sleeping does it always
I, I decide when I decide
I am in the mood right now
Baby, come here

I don't wanna here be alone
You don't have to use your charm
You don't have to break my arm
Sleeping does it always
I, I decide when I decide
I am in the mood right now
Baby, can we do it right now
Save me from the truth or how
I don't wanna here be alone

I don't have to feel your charm
You don't have to break my arm
I don't have to feel your charm
I don't wanna here be alone

I don't have to feel your charm
You don't have to break my arm
I don't have to feel your charm
I don't wanna here be alone

This bird in the hand
Is time without plans
No chiming or bells

No sound in the head
No sense of a threat
No sound of alarm

I don't have to feel your charm
You don't have to break my arm

No, I don't wanna count the calls
I don't wanna love too much
Could give it all away
And I pray for another way

I cannot describe it
I don't wanna try it
'Cause we left it undecided
Opinions divided
I don't care

I don't wanna live in my head like a hum, baby
When you force to keep me home
And I can't come

Maybe I can steady your flow
Tell me what you know
How to make a true love grow
How to make a true love grow
How to make a true love grow

I don't wanna here be alone
You don't have to use your charm
You don't have to break my arm
Sleeping does it always
I, I decide when I decide
I am in the mood right now

Baby, baby
I don't wanna here be alone
You don't have to use your charm
You don't have to break my arm
Sleeping does it always
I, I decide when I decide
I am in the mood right now

Baby, baby
I don't wanna here be alone
You don't have to use your charm
You don't have to break my arm
Sleeping does it always
I, I decide when I decide
I am in the mood right now

Baby, come here
I don't wanna here be alone
You don't have to use your charm
You don't have to break my arm
Sleeping does it always
I, I decide when I decide
I am in the mood right now

Baby, come here
Can we do it right now
Save me from the truth or how
I don't wanna here be alone

I don't have to feel your charm
You don't have to break my arm

7 Hills

(Tony Christie & Roisin Murphy / Now's The Time LP)

I did seven sins in these seven hills
You warned they would follow me
And if I meet the maker of my tears
I might do another three

I sinned and I wished my days away
For I washed in every river just to never feel clean again
Oh I don't know What I'll find after all these years
I can guess just what you make of me
And all this make believe

Can you forgive me
Let your child return

How could you let your baby burn

I did seven sins in these seven hills
You warned they would follow me
And if I meet the maker of my tears
I might do another three

Did I run or was I sent away
Oh I still don't know what the difference anyway
And now I find myself in deep despair
And I wish sometimes
I was breathing different air

Won't you redeem me
Well, don't let your baby burn

Though I lived so many lives
Seems like I was still a child
If all you do is love and burn
You might never get the right to return

How could you let your baby burn

I did seven sins in these seven hills
You warned they would follow me
And if I meet the maker of my tears
I might do another three

Just seven sins on every hill
I was born with something bad in me
Now I lost count
Of all those tears
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed
I'm ready to be redeemed

This is a, this is a simulation

This is a simulation
This is for demonstration
This is an only illusion
This is my only delusion
This is the real of my wildest dreams
These are my wildest dreams
If it's all in my veins
It's all in my mind
You don't get to let it slide
You don't get to let it slide

If this an imitation
The love has a terrible fate
If this is a simulation
Is this such a terrible play

If this an imitation
The love has a terrible fate
If this is a simulation
Is this such a terrible play

Slave To Love

(Bryan Ferry cover / Gucci Commercial)

And tell her I'll be waiting
In the usual place
With the tired and weary
And there's no escape
And to need a woman
You've got to know
How the strong get weak
And the rich get poor

Slave to love, slave to love
Slave to love, oh slave to love

And you're running with me
Don't touch the ground
We're the restless hearted
Not the chained and bound
And the sky is burning
A sea of flame
Though your world is changing
I will be the same

Slave to love, slave to love
Slave to love, oh slave to love

Slave to love, slave to love
Slave to love and I can't escape
I'm a slave to love

And the storm is breaking
Or so it seems
We're too young to reason
Too grown up to dream
And the spring is turning
Your face to mine
I can hear your laughter
I can see your smile

Slave to love, slave to love
Slave to love and I can't escape
I'm a slave to love

Slave to love, slave to love
Slave to love and I can't escape
I'm a slave to love

Slave to love
Slave to love and I can't escape
I'm a slave to love

Standing In The Way Of Control

( The Gossip Cover / Live 06-10-2007 )

Standing in the way of control
We live our lives
Because we're standing in the way of control
We live our lives

Your back's against the wall
There's no one home to call
You're forgetting who you are
You can't stop crying
It's part not giving in
And part trusting your friends
And you'll do it all again
And I'm not lying

Standing in the way of control
We live our lives
Because we're standing in the way of control
We live our lives, lives, lives

Standing in the way of control
We live our lives
Standing in the way of control
By the only way that you know
Because we're standing in the way of control
We live your lives
Survive the only way that you know, know
Standing in the way of control
We live your lives
Survive the only way that you know, know, know

Sunshine

( Let Me Know EP )

Hello Sunshine
Hello Kitty Cat
I had a hard time
But now my baby's back

With this candy too sweet
You make my heart sing and you know it
You leave it good in love to eat
You make me skip a beat, can't control it

Hello Sunshine
Hello Kitty Cat
I had a hard time
But now my baby's back

You make the stars shine
You make my icicle pop
These are the good times
When my bubbles rise up

Too much sugar is in my blood
Going up, down
I need vitamins in my love
Going down, up

Too much wickedness from the start
Going up, down
I can lose my teeth when I lose my heart
Going down, up

Hello Sunshine
Hello Kitty Cat
I had a hard time
But now my baby's back

You make the stars shine
You make my icicle pop
These are the good times
When my bubbles rise up

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

Sweet Nothings

(b-side from the single 'overpowered')

I feel hopelessly optimistic
Though I try to tell myself to be realistic
I can almost taste it
You know it's real when you don't have to chase it

I feel this time
I can trust it
This time
If there's any justice
If these senses do not deceive me
I think i found myself a love that can believe me

Sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
Keep me coming
Back for more
Those sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
Should be running
Out the door

Sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
Keep me coming
Though i've heard it all before
Those sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
I should be running
Out the door

Baby i don't have no crazy expectation
As a matter of fact i don't need an explanation
Love ain't meant to be no pure perfection
As long as we can make the right connection

I say this time i can feel it
Cause this time, i can believe it
Gimme the fairytale ending
Let's do this thing
Stop pretending

It took a chain of disappointment to come to this
I guess my choices to be a little hit and miss
I learned every move along the way
Heard every lie
I never heard him say

Sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
Keep me coming
Back for more
Those sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
Should be running
Out the door

Sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
Keep me coming
Though i've heard it all before
Those sweet sweet nothings (sweet, sweet)
I should be running
Out the door

The Persuaders

(Theme from "The Persuaders" TV Show / The Bullits & Roisin Murphy)

Send me your worst
The smile or the hearse
The flowers, the tear drops
Whichever comes first

But seek and you'll find
A dagger enshrined
You persuade me to thank you in kind

With heart on the line
Make haste the time
The knife or the poison
Whichever the crime

But with grand design
And life on a dime
You persuade me to thank you in kind

La la la la
La la

Send me your worst
The smile or the hearse
The flowers, the tear drops
Whichever comes first

But seek and you'll find
A dagger enshrined
You persuade me to thank you in kind
You persuade me to thank you in kind

The Truth

( Sing by Roisin Murphy with handsome boys modeling school )

[Roisin Murphy]
Go ...
Go to the mountain if you must
Go to the burning bush
Happy would ease your troubled mind
How do the fade just stay behind?

I know you better than you think I do
Don't worry babe.. this is why i fell in love with you
The man in the looking glass
Is looking back at you at last

You can't hide from the truth
Because the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth
Because the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth
Because the truth is all there is
You can't hide

If happy times are too few and far between
It's a pity dear, we can't erase the things we've seen
So disappear, vanish if you wish
Just go before you're swallowed up by bitterness

And the truth is you can't hide from the truth
And the truth hurts because the truth is all there is
I realized some time ago that I would have to let you go

May not be true to see that you would return one day
But in your present state you may as well not be here at all
You wear a thin disguise, it's from yourself you hide
Just take a look at us, we are heading for a fall

[J-Live]
Now presiding in this quarter: hip-hop
Justice, my rap forté
Judge, jury, bailing for prosecuting D.A.
Et ceteras, paraphas
My modus operende
It's carpe diem whether the fact or word is your way
Comprende?
The people versus, you ain't no Sensi
Teaching that style of word-play
We got the words they
Regardless of what your friends say
They're all disable
Striken from the record and deemed indimissable
And this long arm of the law grabs a mighter
Shoot dope lines first and ask questions later
The death sentence of this live litagator
Close the case tighter than the jaws of a 'gator
Stenonographer, that study law again, the jargon
Let your counselors 'a barking, in hopes of a plea bargain
But when you read back verbatim
What they're saying to pursuade them
They realize exactly how i've played them
I come with the truth, whole truth and nothing but
'Cause the truth hurts just as much as fuckin' with lies will
I brew skill with free fills from now until
Plagerizing MC's get their flows distilled

[Roisin Murphy]
Baby I don't die without you by my side
As long as you return into these arms that burn
Baby I won't die just take a look inside
Into these eyes that burn, come to these arms that yearn

I won't die, if you leave me high
I won't die if you're not by my side

And the truth hurts because the truth is all there is
And the truth hurts because the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth, cause the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth
Because the truth is all there is
You can't hide from the truth..

Unlovable

( Let me Know EP )

Unlovable
Am I so unlovable
Unlovable
Am I so unlovable
So unlovable

No I just won't take it lying down
Not when I know that you're messing me around
Still I just can't let you go
Baby when I read what you so

Why don't you do like I do to you
Why can't you be true
Like I'm always true to you
Tell me how you'd feel to know
We could suffer the cruelest blow

Always a song playing song played
About a love that couldn't stand it
Love it couldn't stand the test of time
But I'm not about to lose my mind

Unlovable
Am I so unlovable
Unlovable
Am I so unlovable

Why can't it be me who leads you astray
You keep that in the planes of jealousy
And then you run, run, from the fire
You keep running away from my burning desire

And what's all this change in your heart
Get a room, it's tearing me apart
And not too soon, oh, too late
Don’t make me suffer the cruelest fate

Unlovable
Am I so unlovable
Unlovable
Am I so unlovable

Unlovable
Am I so unlovable
Unlovable
Am I so unlovable

Tell me how would you feel to know
Tell me how would you feel to know
Tell me how would you feel to know
Tell me how would you feel to know

The world is spinning in my hand

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

Party up
On the dancefloor
Lights are flashy everywhere

Party up
In the backroom
Waking the moves with arm to get
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

Pressure up
She's in danger
Slice the music in my head

Start and stop
My reflection
Catching the glim so what you say

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

Wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland
I'm Alice in wonderland
Wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

The world is spinning in my hand
I'm Alice in wonderland

Yellow Moon

(Marius DeVries feat. Roisin Murphy / The Revolution Presents Revolution LP)

Come with me into this paradise
Let your bodies be a sacrifice
Come with me into this secret world
Let your precious bodies be unfurl

Yellow moon
In the starlet sky
Open hearts
In the purest eyes

All men might see
That which lies beneath
But for worldliness
And for disbelief

I'm the former Earth
Like the Heavens do
Seems to pass away
And all will be in you

Come with me into this paradise
Let your bodies be a sacrifice
In other mysteries
All the broken hearts we'll then be here
In other mysteries we'll be (we'll be, we'll be)

Come with me into this secret world
Let your precious bodies be unfurl
Angels are whispering
Into water's deep in crystal clear
And then we'll whisper into every ear

Visions in
A dark ?
A silvered moon
Finds you standing there

Hidden hour
In the shadows place
Where a guilded sun
Lights another day

Just a fleeting feel
In our blinking eye
Seems to bring you near
And all will be in you

Come with me into this paradise
Let your bodies be a sacrifice
In other mysteries
All the broken hearts we'll then be here
In other mysteries we'll be (we'll be, we'll be)

Come with me into this secret world
Let your precious bodies be unfurl
Angels are whispering
Into water's deep in crystal clear
And then we'll whisper into every ear

Love and harmony
Beauty I can see
Love and harmony
Beauty I can see
Love and harmony
Beauty I can see
Love and harmony
Beauty I can see

With bright eye
We didn't blow
Am I my brother's keeper

Bliss on bliss
Sigh on sigh
Could only shake it deeper

Come with me into this paradise
Let your bodies be a sacrifice
In other mysteries
All the broken hearts we'll then be here
In other mysteries we'll be (we'll be, we'll be)

Come with me into this secret world
Let your precious bodies be unfurl
Angels are whispering
Into water's deep in crystal clear
And then we'll whisper into every ear

Come with me into this paradise
Let your bodies be a sacrifice
In other mysteries
All the broken hearts we'll then be here
In other mysteries we'll be (we'll be, we'll be)

Come with me into this secret world
Let your precious bodies be unfurl
Angels are whispering
Into water's deep in crystal clear
And then we'll whisper into every ear

Yellow moon
Yellow moon
Yellow moon
Yellow moon

And our little life is rounded with a sleep
