B i o g r a p h y
 (by MacKenzie Wilson)

Their story begins 10 years ago, when MATT BROWN and ANNA-LYNNE WILLIAMS were teenagers growing up in Los Angeles, met through mutual friends and began working together to create what would eventually become, with the help of ROSS SIMONINI and *JAMIE WILLIAMS, the distinct sound of TRESPASSERS WILLIAM.

trespassers william became a presence in the North American music scene when their second studio album, different stars, was re-released by Nettwerk Music Group worldwide in 2004. Called “"Gently mesmerizing...haunting" by NME, different stars hinted at influences of ambient, folk and shoegaze, establishing the band as subtle, nuanced songwriters.

Since recording different stars in 2003, the group toured internationally with acts such as Damien Rice, Stereolab and Morrissey. In the US, they also have had much success in the TV & Film world: two tracks off of different stars were licensed to the hit Fox Television series The O.C., “lie in the sound” was featured on the Fall 2004 premiere of the WB's One Tree Hill, and two tracks appeared in the film Love Song for Bobby Long, starring John Travolta and Scarlet Johansson. Coming up, the song “different stars” will appear in the Disney film Annapolis, set for release early next year.

The end of 2005 finds trespassers william preparing for the release of their new album HAVING, set to hit stores in February ‘06. “We worked on having as a band for a long time before going into the studio. We really crafted and cared about each of the songs…their length, order, tempo,” says anna-lynne williams.

When the band felt ready to step into the studio, they took a break from the hectic Los Angeles lifestyle and ventured North to the outskirts of Seattle, where they rented a house together to reinterpret the focus of their sound. “We set up a studio in the house we were renting and did it all ourselves. It was great; we could be really picky if we wanted to be, we could work into the wee hours of the night or whenever inspiration struck…it really freed us up creatively,” matt brown explains.

Upon completion of recording, the band traveled to Tarbox Studios (Buffalo, New York) and worked with renowned producer/mixer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Mogwai, Low, etc.) to push their songs toward more complex textures and into deeper extremes of quiet and loud. They began to create a more diverse sound through the constant rotation of instruments among band members.

“Working with Dave was amazing,” ross simonini says. “He was a huge part of this record, crafting each song to be very individual, but at the same time allowing the band to be really involved with all decisions.”

This change in style and attitude has also complimented the band’s live performances. Their sets include more powerful shifts in dynamic, live video projection and constant instrument changes. The more electronic tracks on having also tend to utilize more acoustic treatments on stage, making the live show a unique and separate experience from the album.

In the remaining months of 2005, the band will release a live iTunes session to prepare for the release of having set for February 21st. Look for the band on tour in North America and Europe early next year. Since the recording of having, jamie williams has left trespassers William to pursue other interests. Anna-Lynne was guest on the Chemical Brothers' album  "push the button" with the track "Hold tight london".

I Know

I know i'll never see you
I know i'll never run into your body walking through the crooked streets
I know i'll never hear you
I know i'll never hear you like a sound that wafts inside from outside there
I know that if i waited i know that if i wait a thousand days will lie wasted with thoughts of you
My love i've pictured this:
Your violet eyelids opened to say "here's where you've been"
Your lips open to say "my darling it's been so very long and i'm in pain"
I know i'll never feel you
I know i'll never get so close to you that i can't smell anything else
I know that it is raining
And i know that the rain will soak you through
And leave you like the tattered sky
I know i go in circles
I know that window panes bring only rain and not your face
My love i've pictured this:
Your violet eyelids opened to say "here's where you've been"
sometimes i picture all your fingers
Sometimes they're crawling down my spine
Sometimes they're buttoning your jacket
Sometimes you're far but you're still mine
Sometimes i picture all your fingers
Sometimes they're crawling down my spine
Sometimes they're buttoning your jacket
Sometimes you're far but you're still mine
I know i go in circles
I know that window panes bring only rain and not your face

Desert

My feet are trembling alone
With the serpentine skins on the floor
And while i sleep will you send me a thought
While i lean could you build me a rock
Or pretend you're my home
Touch my lips or are they too blue
Thirsty from never tasting you
And with the wind and the dark and the sand these evenings are cold
And are you sleeping or can you give me a shawl
Or pretend you're my home
Finally you tuck me in
Don't feel warm don't know where i am
And you lean into my mouth and say "i'm alone"
And i know your heart is a hole but your body's so close
I can pretend that i'm home
Empty as a hole but it feels so warm
This isn't home but somehow it's gold
Empty as a hole but it feels so warm
This isn't home but somehow it's gold

Anchor

Oh our dance was slow
And you fumbled with my hands
Whisper "time to sleep"
You have dreams awaiting your tired mind
Does your heart get weaker
When you think how far we've to go
Forget all the promises
You're tired and you're drifting and you're low
And if you can't steer
Then it would be safer to drop the anchor
And if you can't feel
It's selfish to use up all of the bandages
I can read your eyes: if this is real then it'll end
I shouldn't look so surprised
This happens over and over again
Does your heart get fiercer
When you think someday i might go
Forget all the promises
You're tired and you're drifting and you're low
And if you can't steer
Then it would be safer to drop the anchor
And if you can't feel
It's selfish to use up all of the bandages
When you're alone
When you're hollow
Then you'll ask me to
Come and fill you come
And feel you
Don't think i will do

Washes Away

I can laugh at this dream
And if i drown i'll wake in the morning
This is liquid love in a plastic cup
And if it leaks we can plug it right back up
Pain is a rain that washes away
I'm a fabric you can't stain
To make light of you is all that i have
So understand me if i laugh
You were sleeping
And your eyes they were gone for a while
You were screaming
And i searched for the lines of your smile
This is peace and i know 'cause i'm too tired to cry
I'll never get close to you and i'm just too distracted to try
Pain is a rain that washes away
I'm a fabric you can't stain
To fall into this is not what i want
So understand me if i don't
Love is a glove that just doesn't fit
No matter how you pull at it
To make light of you
Is all that i have
So understand me if i laugh
It is late i won't ask you to stay or to stroke
I have never gotten warm from you huddling close
If you danced i might take you right up in my arms
But you don't
So i whisper this is all
This is all all

Cabinet

Thought like ink
Love runs out
So i kept it up on a shelf
And i will polish it finger it
But never let it breathe by itself
Whatever happens next
When nothing's left
I'd just rather not see
You've been slicing like a knife
Like eve with her bite
But i don't think you've wounded me we
Don't fall into love
It slips from the cabinets and falls into us
I stand apart from your body in the dark
But our gazes link like a bridge
And i don' t think that i'm weak
Though my lips open to speak
That i'd trade my soul for a kiss
I turn away to cry but even when i lie
There's some things words cannot hide
And my aim's never been good
But my arrow to the moon
Is so close it scrapes the sides
We don't fall into love
It slips from the cabinets
And falls into us
Now love's tangled up
Like a sititng duck
I don't have to search
You're all my answers
We don't fall into love
It slips from the cabinets and falls into us

Broken

I'm broken
And you didn't notice
How is that i'm all pieces
Can you sum up in one sentence
All that you feel for me
Juggle my tears
With my fierce questions
I'm broken can you fix this
Broke i'm broken
I'm worn out given what i had
You just sip from your own glass
I can't be without you a moment
Without fearing you won't come back
Juggle my tears with my sharp pieces
I'm broken can you fix this
Broke i'm broken
Is your girl of glass something that never mends
Or is she a puzzle that fell
That we could mend again

My Eyes Were Closed

Oh do you love me
Does if fade like a drying waterstain
Or if i beckon will you stay
Let me finish watching you change
Like a sunset
Just because i love doesn't mean
There's innately something inbetween
Turns out my eyes were closed
And so i didn't know
Turns out my eyes were closed
I'd thought that i was more
I've played the weakling
Not afraid to ride your sympathy like a train
But i never caught you completely
Just a wing that i couldn't keep
So intent feeling loving you
Thought that was all i knew how to do
Turns out my eyes were closed
And so i didn't know
Turns out my eyes were closed
I'd thought that i was more

It's Been a Shame

Over in a moment
You've the only lifeboat
Say you can soothe
But you know that you don't
Bitterer because
You said it was perfect and i thought it was
Just like everyone does
It's all on my shoulders
You're the one who got to say
"this has all been shame"
And i'm the one who had to stay
Bitterer because
You said it was perfect and i thought it was
Just like every fool does
It's all on my shoulders
You're the one who got to say
"this has all been a waste"
And i'm the one who had to stay
Trying to find it
A reason not to ache
Like when you say that you don't care to stay
You're still not on your way
Anything i'm still aching

Umbrella

You've waited to say
"there's no way our bodies are one"
Until today
With the rain under umbrellas
The cover was warm but there's a hole
And the rain comes in
Stand as far as you want
Right now i don't think
The rain will cry with us
Love let down the umbrella
Afraid i'll see you as you are
And your eyes falter
I won't say "stay"
I'll play the marble heart
You're beautiful
Maybe so but it's gotten dark
So it's just you walking through
The pain you made
Love tell me more l
Et it pour
I don't feel the rain
The rain will cry with us
Love let down the umbrella
Afraid i'll see you as you are
And your eyes falter
My silence
An ornament that you'll keep
It would've been easy
If i'd break and weep
Taste your own tears when you go to sleep
Love under your umbrella
Still beautiful maybe so

Stay, There's Nowhere Else

Oh i know how it's been
You have curtains when the day ends
And i feel you like a thorn
But it feels right our loose entwined
And i wonder how it'd be
If you'd not go
If you'd ask to stay
Stay for all the days you can count
Pretend that there's nowhere else
Feel and speak and cry and hold
Pretend that you're someone else
Will you be sorry will i
Will you be sorry will i
Sour as the oranges
See i can't bite cuz i'm too tired
And i say that's what happens
When you run hard to get nowhere
Still i wonder how it'd be
If you'd not go
If you'd ask to stay
Stay for all the days you can count
Pretend that there's nowhere else
Feel and speak and cry and hold
Pretend that you're someone else
Will you be sorry will i
Will you be sorry and...
I almost stop feeling the freezing
Whenever it's cold
And i almost can see in the dark now
Cuz your skin's so gold

 

Different stars

Lie in the sound

I love you more than i should
So much more than is good for me
More than is good

Oh the timing is cruel
Oh i need and don't want to need
More than i should

I am falling
Say my name
And i'll lie in the sound
What is love but whatever
My heart needs around

Oh my sheet is so thin
So i say i can't sleep because
It's so very cold

But i know what i need
And if you were just near to me
Would you go...

I am falling
Say my name
And i'll lie in the sound
What is love
But whatever
My heart needs around

I am falling
Say my name
And i'll lie in the sound
What is love
But whatever
My heart needs around

And it needs you
Too much
Now.

Different stars

So you'd sing a lullaby to get me to sleep
So it's no surprise my eyes are never heavy
For i've not seen you in the flesh for so long
That i'm not sure we would know each other at all

Oh the weight it must be light wherever you are
And i know you don't think twice wherever you are
Oh the weight it must be light wherever you are
And i know you don't think twice wherever you are

So i will hum alone, too far from you
All that i say now is nothing to you
We will lie under different stars
I am where i am and you're where you are, you're where you are.

Oh the weight it must be light wherever you are
And i know you don' t think twice wherever you are
And i'd ask if you're all right wherever you are
And do you think of me, you might, wherever you are.

Alone

You gave me
Cold glass love
You've got teeth for biting and you've bore a hole in me

You and me
Hot and cold
You have crossed all safely while i teeter on my rope

Better than me
And i know
You are calm and symmetry and i'm an empty hole

My envy
Of all you own
I want to be a possession you dust and won't let go

Gentlest touch
And sweetest sound
Something you'll run back in for when the house burns down

Alone
Alone doesn't feel so cold
Alone
Alone doesn't feel so cold

'Cause your arms
Your arms they don't feel so warm
So come
Come love and take me home

What i am
And what you are
Some things just don't hold the way the night has trapped a star

Alone
Alone doesn't feel so cold
Alone
Alone doesn't feel so cold

'Cause your arms
Your arms they don't feel so warm
So come
Come love and take me home.

Let you down

Oh love, you're driving me crazy
And i don't know what to do
Will i throw this all away
For you

3:30 in the morning
Here in front of you
Oh love, what are we to do

Love, do you need me now
'Cause i've let you down
'Cause i've already let you go
And you don't even know

Oh love, you've come from nowhere
And brought me to my knees
And in this place is it hello or good-bye

And i'd kiss your honey lips
Oh i'd touch your sunlit hair
But these are the weapons that'd destroy me

Love, do you need me now
'Cause i've let you down
'Cause i've already let you go
And you don't even know

Love, how i need it now
Love it won't let go
I guess you never know we never know

Love, do you need me now
'Cause i've let you down
'Cause i've already let you go
And you don't even know.

Love, do you need me now
'Cause i've let you down
'Cause i've already let you go
And you don't even love me anymore
I don't love anymore.
I don't love anymore.
I don't love anymore...

Love is blindness

( U2 Cover )

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my heart
Love is blindness
In a parked car
In a crowded street
You see your love
Made complete
Thread is ripping
The knot is slipping
Love is blindness

Love is clockworks
And cold steel
Fingers too numb to feel
Squeeze the handle
Blow out the candle
Love is blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my love
Blindness

A little death
Without mourning
No call
And no warning
Baby...a dangerous idea
That almost makes sense

Love is drowning
In a deep well
All the secrets
And no one to tell
Take the money
Honey
Blindness

Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Oh my love
Blindness

Flicker

When you know it's the last dance
When you'd catch up but you can't
In this circle where I stay
You at just a reach away and
When it tries to flicker back
Try to break it, try to laugh
Oh and I'll never be sure
You say, there's nothing we could've done

Oh and this is mine, my way
The one waving at the train
Even long after I know
That it's moved too far away

And when you walk, you walk so fast
Couldn't you have just held back
Your eyes don't grab the way mine do
A last time to look at you

Oh and this is mine, my piece
So sad for clinging to
What if I forget your face
I couldn't even dream of you

Oh and this is mine, my way
The one waving at the train
Even long after I know
That it's moved too far away

Fragment

If I lean, if I lean in
So close to you
Can I breathe, can I breathe
I don't know so far from home
I'm tired of, I'm tired of being
Cautious oh it aches and
The only thing cautious now's
My hand not to break you

I cannot promise any of the things I want to
But I could not want this any fragment more than I do

I don't know, I don't know how
To read what you give me
Say "I'm tired, I'm tired of being lonely"
Spell it for me

If I lean, if I lean in
So close to you
I want to know there's no space
Between me and you

I cannot promise any of the things I want to
But I could not want this any fragment more than I do

Oh, what to call this
Tell me how I'm supposed to touch you
I could not want this
Any fragment more than I do
And you could not want this
Any fragment more than I do

Just like this

Just like that
The straw ignites and nothing is left
Still through smoke
I will know that you're my angel
Just like this
With a firefly net you take back your kiss
It's all yours
From the eskimo cold to the bolts on the door

You were my angel
And I feel that it's not worth it anymore
You make me feel that I'm not worth it anymore

Love is small
It is two-dimensional as a wall
And nothing's either
Under the right or the left hand

You've a face
That I've loved like a doll whose features have rubbed off
Don't we try
Kneeling down and making ourselves cry

You were my angel
And I feel that it's not worth it anymore
You make me feel that I'm not worth it anymore

Shut me eyes and feel
Your breath as you dance with me
Forever's just a word
But whisper it to me…

Love you more

All of my songs are for you
All of my songs are sad
Whenever you wake at night you say
That all of your dreams were bad

Give me your tightest arm
Give me an "I love you"
I'll stay awake all night
And blow your darker thoughts far from you

Don't say that I don't love you more
I can't understand what you'd doubt for
Just like how if I would dream your dreams
I'd know why you say "just hold me"

All of our kisses must
Come to an end some time
But it is always your lips
Pulling away from mine

Don't say that I don't love you more
I can't understand what you'd doubt for
Just like how if I would dream your dreams
I'd know why you say "just hold me"

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

Untitled

It is too late to feel like a numb skin
Say that you've harpooned me, am I a prize then
I am lost as the sea, you tell me what I see
Love was supposed to save me
Love was supposed to save me

It is too dim to read, and there's no moon
Our love always rhymes like a poem
This mirror seems wrong you decide what I am

Love was supposed to save me
Love was supposed to save me

You chose the rose with the thorn
You chose the sky with the storm
I'll take the lover that lies
My piece of divine til everything dies

Love was supposed to save me
Love was supposed to save me

What could i say

What could I say
To touch beneath your clothes
When I say "I need you here"
You'd say "how could I not know"
Why am I so tired
Exhausted in my love
Water in my eyes
Why am I not enough

I told you everything I knew
I tore my pockets out and gave them all to you
You hold my throat like a violin
I never want to kiss again
Cause there's nobody like you
Cause there's nobody like you

Now I'm so afraid
To push you from my mind
Like the fear of forgetting what
What light is like when you close your eyes

How can you stare
How can you sit
While I'm trying to tear you up
And I'm almost good at it

I told you everything I knew
I tore my pockets out and gave them all to you
You hold my throat like a violin
I never want to kiss again
Cause there's nobody like you
Cause there's nobody like you

Having

*** Thanx a lot to Maya for these lyrics ***

Safe, sound

I forget, tell me again
What do you want
You'll be close, not close enough
Not close enough for my kind of heart
You say words you can't take back
Used to be love
Now it's words hard to look at
Hard to look at with the lights on
In your head it must not sound so bad
Or why would you say it
When you know i feel it
Whistles through my bones
Alone in a love
The one that we started
The one that you ended with some words
Why'd i start before you said
"i checked it out, it's safe and sound"
Like i showed you right away
All the things that eyes can say
Where you are it must not look so bad
Or why would you do it
When you know i feel it
And my eyes are not afraid to cry their way
Through all you say
I know that what we started
I think that we ended

What of me

It's a place that's not so far
I dream there and sometimes i wake there
Do you want me caring less
Sometimes we don't ask for what we need
And i guess how i want to be loved
And i've guessed what of me you need
It doesn't matter if we lie
Your sentences never defined you
Do you think that i can't feel
When i touch you there's words on your body
Should you be scared
When i say sometimes i'd want you dead
So no one else can have you when it ends
How'd i reach this point on my own
And how fragile right there i was
This is not the first time
That i've watched the end of that thing that had no end
Do you want me caring less
Sometimes we let go of what we need
Why can't you guess how i want to be loved
You can't even tell me what of me you need

Weakening

Time isn't short anymore
Moments that turn into worlds in your hands
How do you feel when you wake
Spells that are weaker the longer they take
But i wait
Waiting for you's nice
Like there is no doubt in my mind
Waiting for you's nice
Like there is no doubt in my mind
It doesn't hurt anymore
Love that is stubborn and becomes a part
Of who you are
You know i look for the wear
Signs of it fading, expecting it there
Tell me where
Waiting for you's nice
Like there is no doubt in my mind
Imagining you's nice
Like there is no doubt in my mind

I don't mind

You're like a lover
In that when you look you make lists
I could do with more of that
More of that
Less of this
Shine your light
I don't mind
Shine your light
I don't mind
You know what words of love
Get squeezed out
By a hand tightening 'round your neck
Tell me love
Tell me it
Hold me tight
I don't mind
Hold me tight
I don't mind

Ledge

It's strange that it's you
That's doing this
Love's a window ledge
You're talking me down from it
Like you can talk it away
If i say this once
Don't talk me out of this
This one thing i have
You talk me out of everything
You're gently wearing me down
For you i'll play along
It's common as waking up
We'll blow it away
I'll give it up quietly
It's nothing
It's nothing, yet it's all right

And we lean in

What if the sound of my voice
Is the sound of your lover's voice
What if the back of my hand
Feels so familiar we don't stop
Don't stop, don't
And we lean in
How did you do that
It's strange how light catches on things
Like there is nothing else
Or say it's in my eyes
Or it's my heart
Well i can close them all
I won't look for the signs of love
I won't look

My hands up

Turning into something i can't cope
With not having
Stop, stop it
Could i put my hands up
And ask that you stop
Do i need to be in love
I'm lost when it's just me
With only a hope to make
You happy enough to stay
Return the words, the looks
I give you like they're falling out of me
Seconds change
And at the end
Your face is inerasable
True, i need to be in love
I'm lost when it's just me
With only a hope to make
You happy enough
Do i need to be in love
What is there otherwise from loving
Just takes a face
To make everything else erase
Stop, stop it
Could i put my hands up
And ask that you stop

Low point

I've been scared
Not like this
You lose things, i lost it
Just please reach from somewhere
My heart is done
It's too scared
I've never wished this before now
If i said i did i take it all back
You have to go all the way
To know where it is
All the way down
You know what you'd stop for
When you're running from your worst fear
That you need it
Now i'm fading
This is what i'd like to lay in
I've never wished this before now
Now i know all the long steps down
This time my eyes close like this
I know my last thoughts
I know my last wish
To not be wishing
To not have broke this
To feel what i'm missing
Somehow i broke it
I only know breaking
And what i want to lie in

No one

What would you say
If i said this year has been
Only a dream that only we have been in
No one else can sense all the harm i've done
And it has always been our hands in a melded one
If there's a difference
Then i don't know
Between miles and a stone's throw
All that matters is what can mend us
You can be silent as you want to
No one can punish me like i do
What would you say
If i said i found the truth
We'll turn it around
I'll stay here and wait for you
If there's a difference
Then i don't know
Between miles and a stone's throw
All that matters is what can mend us

Matching weight

Tonight
We don't have a lot to go on
But that's not how it lives in my head
No, not at all
Blind times
Thought we were matching weight
We pulled
Sometimes it was you and sometimes it was me
But where are we
You say "don't take it all so hard for now
There's so much space
And there will always be later for that"

Cast

Believe Me

Believe me the night is long
And deep, we along belong
In arms, in sleep
Wish I
Could take you with me
In the morning we'll make
Believe
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I'm scared what I'd forget
Without you nesting on it
And I swear I won't lie
And I'll try to hold this to tight
That no water's gonna get in
To it

Tomorrow On The Runway

Old days don't come to find me
This sun is just about to climb
Up over there
While my heart is sinking
I do not want my voice to go out
Into the air
Did you leave the darkness without me
You're always miles ahead
And we're standing in tomorrow
On the runway

All be the music in my head
The air around my bed
All be my rest
Retrace the smile disgraces
Of the time embraces
That I never really loved
Did you leave the darkness without me
You're always miles ahead
And we're standing in tomorrow
On the runway
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Oh I want to fly, fly far around the blue light
To be alive, come alive
Don't ??? red light
Turn around, seem always to go my way

Old days don't come to find me
This sun is just about to climb
Up over there
While my heart is sinking
I do not want my voice to go out
Into the air
Did you leave the darkness without me
You're always miles ahead
And we're standing in tomorrow
On the runway
On the runway

Axes

Her tall tree on its side
And know what it feels like
I felt so anchored in my forest bed
When vows soup it's an upside

To dream about
Your axes out

Often my army had been taken out
But taking stuck in the morning
Can my art and I save my pins
For such a specimen as you
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Do we go there
Beneath the pins
To dream about
Your axes out

I would go for names
In wood on a night like this
How over straighten name
For souls are even

Never you

This is the kiss
That I forgot to lay on your head
This is the palm
That I forgot to calm in my own
And I feel for the sweet
That I no longer feel at my lips

Now your seasons aren't the same as mine
Now you're sleeping through my days
And I know why it's never you passing by

These are some words
That you forgot to hear
Walking out
I'd said love, never leave
Without me like without your coat
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Now your seasons aren't the same as mine
Now you're sleeping through my days
And I know why it's never you passing by
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Love so bare
You can't cover it
And I feel like I've left
All these notes in your head
That you'll find
Memories and questions and please
And nevermind

Now your seasons aren't the same as mine
And you're sleeping through my days
And I know why it's never you passing by

Far Too Far

Love don't leave a single piece of you
When you go
Far too far and far too cold of you
If you know that i will sit here
I will finger your coat
And so if you don't know
If you can't see anything
You're only wounding me more
Maybe if it showed you'd pity me
Not your fault but it's not mine either, what is that
I haven't even tried to fight it off
It's just there
And so if you don't know
If you can't see anything
You're only wounding me more
Maybe if it showed you'd pity me
And if I know love
The first sting is soft
Compared to the end
You have me inside
The trap you don't know you set
And until you see this
I can't move
Must i hold my breath
Love's a thousand faces
But for me yours is it
So love, if you won't come over
To where i wait for you
I'm too weak
To take what I need
And if you don't feel
You cannot soothe
And if I know love the
First sting is soft compared to the end

Flicker

When you know it's the last dance
When you'd catch up but you can't
In this circle where I stay
You at just a reach away and
When it tries to flicker back
Try to break it, try to laugh
Oh and I'll never be sure
You say, there's nothing we could've done

Oh and this is mine, my way
The one waving at the train
Even long after I know
That it's moved too far away
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And when you walk, you walk so fast
Couldn't you have just held back
Your eyes don't grab the way mine do
A last time to look at you

Oh and this is mine, my piece
So sad for clinging to
What if I forget your face
I couldn't even dream of you

Oh and this is mine, my way
The one waving at the train
Even long after I know
That it's moved too far away

Left Of Center

If you want me you can find me
Left of center
Off of the strip in the outskirts
And in the fringes
Left of center out of the grip

If you want me you can find me
Left of center
Off of the strip in the outskirts
And in the fringes
Left of center out of the grip
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And when they ask me
What are you looking at
I just answer nothing much
I think they know that I'm looking at them
I think they think I must be out of touch

But I'm only in the outskirts
And in the fringes
Left of center
Off of the avenue
And if you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Wondering about you

And when they ask me
What are you looking at
I just answer nothing much
I think they know that I'm looking at them
I think they think I must be out of touch

I think that somewhere deep inside of us
We must be similar if not the same
So I'll continue to be wanting you
Left of center amid the gray

And if you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Wondering about you

And when they ask me
What are you looking at
I just answer nothing much
I think they know that I'm looking at them
I think they think I must be out of touch

Hearts Are Meant To Break

( Poem "Change" )

You say "lovers change and lie"
Hearts are meant to break and fix themselves
And every face will change with lines
But a soul that's sweet is always sweet
And you taste sweet to me"

You said "when you changed your mind
And I put my hand on your forehead then
You could say that it was lost
But I could feel it in the skin of us
And you feel close to me"
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And it's too long to see
You'd be going around (?)
Wrong way along
And then it's why you ?? never cross

And now it's the only thing I dream
Gathering what I dropped thoughtlessly
How long did I have before
I love you became I loved you so

Maybe A Sad Song

Maybe a sad song can bring
You back around
Maybe a dream that I have
Often enough
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
???

Just Like This

Just like that
The straw ignites and nothing is left
Still through smoke
I will know that you're my angel

Just like this
With a firefly net you take back your kiss
It's all yours
From the Eskimo cold to the bolts on the door

You were my angel
And I feel that it's not worth it anymore
You make me feel that I'm not worth it anymore

Love is small
It is two-dimensional as a wall
And nothing's either
Under the right or the left hand

You've a face
That I've loved like a doll whose features have rubbed off
Don't we try
Kneeling down and making ourselves cry
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You were my angel
And I feel that it's not worth it anymore
You make me feel that I'm not worth it anymore

Shut me eyes and feel
Your breath as you dance with me
Forever's just a word
But whisper it to me

Surrounded

All the good disappears
Is that what you wanted
I let go 'cause I thought you did
And I want you to be

Surrounded by what you want
I could give to a point, maybe
Lots of light and out it goes
The difference is startling
But you don't say anything
I've stopped trying to show
How sweetness is sweet, my love
I don't show it well enough
I don't
If I could know one
Could I know what you want
I'd stop this running around
To know that I stand nowhere
Lots of light and out it goes
The difference is startling
But you don't say anything
I've stopped trying to show
How sweetness is sweet, my love
I don't show it well enough
I don't
What I want is more
Like pictures with words
I fear you'll whisper
There's other things good as love
If I could...
If I could know one...
Could I know what you want
To give only what
Would draw out a "how'd you know"

Sparrow

Either way
You'll have to say "I'm sorry"
By the end
If the you I have is different
And bare is the state you bring.
Bare is the slate you bring
Spare you new love nothing.
Love is the knife
We pulled out of our backs
I know the sound that it makes.
Acting like new but you're not new

Right You Are

( Noble House EP )

You should drain of color
Like an insect on a leaf
You should taste of nothing
How much water would you be

Shows how right you are
When I'm crying and you're not
I'm not one of those
To say that hurting is better
Than not knowing

Fill the nights with water
Or something promising to fill
Never mind the waiting
Beautiful something bewitch will
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Shows how strong you are
When I'm trying and you're not
On you doesn't show
I would fall for that face again after all

Stop telling my heart...
Just stop tugging my heart

The Lids

Only now that I'm alone
I see the night as what it is wasted
I can only close my eyes
With one thing behind the lids
So it is
Maybe you'll wake me
Waking to ringing
Maybe I'll wake to you
Confessing that this isn't
Quite what I had in mind
But I lied
I'll wait
Feel my love is all too much
Real as things you touch
And know in all the ways
Maybe you'll wake me
Waking to ringing
Maybe I'll wake to you
Maybe you'll wake me
Waking to your warm
Maybe I'll wake to you

Red

Tall leaves in the morning
Don't leave, it's not morning
And after all
A sailor absolves you
Don't leave in the morning
Kissed cheek, it's not morning
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Don't leave in the morning
Paper doll
Matchbox and all
And after all is done
A sailor absolves you

Lives & Dies

What kind of love's like
Something you're born with
That lives and dies with you

But still startles every time
(in the morning we'll make-believe)
Like cold water over you

Oh I could live and die with you
I know it's too much
I want to live and die with you
I know it's too much

What kind of love's like
Something beside you
That lives and dies
Your bread and water
Don't look at me
I couldn't take much more

Oh I could live and die with you
I know it's too much
I want to live and die with you
I know it's too much

Don't look at me
Don't look at me

To live and die with you
I know it's
Live and die with you
I know it's
Live and die with you

What kind of love's like
What kind of love's like
What kind of love's like...

I Could Go Back

Did I just think it, no
Did I just write it down
When did I lean in close enough
I'd be invisible
It'd be comfortable
If I'd still see and hear you
I could go back to my old way
I could go back to the doorway
I see when the lights
And the air would touch
What for me
I think
Would be too much
Did I just think it or
Did I try saying more
Did I put messages in my eyes
Like bottles
Crawling back to my old way
I could go back to the doorway
The light hurts my eyes
And I get spent so
One day you'll say
"Why didn't you say no."

Catch Not Break

Once in the while
I'd like to catch, not break, what I hold
And once when you're close
I'd like to speak my beautiful thoughts
And then I can melt like I will
When I took my kiss somewhere else
I broke, I know
The natural order of things
And I know it doesn't go

Blue

Roses red
White instead
Lost a lot of blood
Drips over it
Drips
Red drips over it
Lost a lot of blood
Either one my love

Non Albums Tracks

Bell Under Water

No I don't expect you
To decode what I left you
Fingers dipped in lemon juice

Handwriting in the water
Like a bell under water
Handwriting in the water
Like a bell under water

In a room we slept in
Five senses collecting
Like we're fingerprinting

Handwriting in the water
Like a bell under water
Handwriting in the water
Like a bell under water

Far Too Far

( Unreleased )

Love don't leave a single piece of you
When you go
Far too far and far too cold of you
If you know that i will sit here
I will finger your coat
And so if you don't know
If you can't see anything
You're only wounding me more
Maybe if it showed you'd pity me
Not your fault but it's not mine either - what is that
I haven't even tried to fight it off
It's just there
And so if you don't know
If you can't see anything
You're only wounding me more
Maybe if it showed you'd pity me
And if i know love
The first sting is soft
Compared to the end
You have me inside
The trap you don't know you set
And until you see this
I can't move
Must i hold my breath
Love's a thousand faces
But for me yours is it
So love, if you won't come over
To where i wait for you
I'm too weak
To take what i need
And if you don't feel
You cannot soothe
And if i know love the
First sting is soft compared to the end.

Fortune

( Unreleased )

I stopped listening to fortunes
When i realized they never come true
Stopped believing what i do
Ever will unlock what i want to
Some things never happen
Haven't seen water burn
My angel won't settle for me
That is all i learned

Can i reach out for what i want
Without the burn and sting of candles
Can i empty out your heart
And fill it up with something different
Some things never happen
Haven't seen water burn
My angel won't settle for me
That is all i learned

Hold Tight London

( Chemical Brothers featuring Anna Lynne )

So why do I warn you?
I see things when I hold you
But I've whispered, "It's alright."
It was you and me and a long night.

You're a ghost in the doorway
I can see through and I hold tight
Understand holding until it hurts
I just want you here and you're lovely

You're a ghost in the doorway
I can see through and I hold tight
Understand holding until it hurts
I just want you here and you're lovely

Don't worry, nothing can go wrong
Don't worry, nothing can go wrong
Don't worry, nothing can go wrong
Don't worry, nothing can go wrong

In a Song

( Vapour Trail EP )

What if all i want is not so hard after all
I've spent too many days wanting
If it's just wildflowers that we could pick
And set on the table and look at in the morning
I see it when you do just what i said
And i don't feel then that my heart knows the difference
"let me sleep" is all that you ask of me
But i can't remember a dream that didn't scare me
So what if it's just one sentence
That you must not have heard in a song
'Cause it's too honest and flawed
I see it when you do just what i said
And i don't feel then that my heart knows the difference
Next time will i not imagine i know
How you could save me and love me enough
Next time will i not imagine you have
Something to soothe me that i've never had

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

Left of center

( Suzanne Vega cover / let you down EP )

If you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Out of the grip

In the outskirts
And in the fringes
Left of center
Off of the strip

If you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Out of the grip

In the outskirts
And in the fringes
Left of center
Off of the strip

And when they ask me
"What are you looking at?"
I just answer
"Nothing much"
I think they know that
I'm looking at them
I think they think
I must be out of touch

But I'm only in the outskirts
In the fringes
Left of center
Off the avenue
If you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Wondering about you

When they ask me
"What are you looking at?"
I just answer
"Nothing much"
I think they know that
I'm looking at them
I think they think
I must be out of touch

I think that somewhere deep inside of us
We must be similar if not the same
So i'll continue to be wanting you
Left of center against the grain

And if you want me
You can find me
Left of center
Wondering about you

When they ask me
"What are you looking at?"
I just answer
"Nothing much"
I think they know that
I'm looking at them
I think they think
I must be out of touch
Out of touch

Let's Go To Bed

( The Cure Cover )

But I don't care if you don't
And I don't feel if you don't
And I don't want it if you don't
And I won't say it
If you won't say it

Let me take your hand
I'm shaking like milk
Turning, turning blue
All over the windows and the floors
Fires outside in the sky
Look as perfect as cats
You and me together again
But it's just the same
A stupid game

But I don't care if you don't
And I don't feel if you don't
And I don't want it if you don't
And I won't say it
If you won't say it first

Oh let's go to bed
Oh let's go to bed

You think you're tired now
But wait until three
Laughing at the Christmas lights
You remember from December
All of this then back again
Another girl, another name
Stay alive and stay the same
But it's just the same
A stupid game

I don't care if you don't
And I don't feel if you don't
And I don't want it if you don't
And I won't say it
If you won't say it first

Oh let's go to bed
Oh let's go to bed

Doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo...

More past

( Noble House EP )

After you go
After you go
I won't expect to hear your voice again
Do not leave footprints
To carve out your weight
In the snow

More and more past
Nothing will last
If you forget watch the sun set so far
You held my hand but
I don't think you will remember that

With all your veils raised up
Who's to expect the same love
With all your veils raised up
Who's to expect the same love...

*** Thanx a lot to http://www.lieinthesound.fr for this one ***

The Fairest Of The Seasons

(Nico cover / I Saved Latin! A Tribute To Wes Anderson LP)

Now that it's time
Now that the hour hand has landed at the end
Now that it's real
Now that the dreams have given all they had to lend
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And maybe try another time
And do I really have a hand in my forgetting

Now that I've tried
Now that I've finally found that this is not the way
Now that I turn
Now that I feel it's time to spend the night away
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And maybe finally split the rhyme
And do I really understand the undernetting

Yes and the morning has me
Looking in your eyes
And seeing mine warning me
To read the signs carefully

Now that it's light
Now that the candle's falling smaller in my mind
Now that it's here
Now that I'm almost not so very far behind
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And maybe follow another sign
And do I really have a song that I can ride on

Now that I can
Now that it's easy, ever easy all around
Now that I'm here
Now that I'm falling to the sunlights and a song
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And do I have to do just one
And can I choose again if I should lose the reason

Yes and the morning has me
Looking in your eyes
And seeing mine warning me
To read the signs carefully

Now that I smile
Now that I'm laughing even deeper inside
Now that I see
Now that I finally found the one thing I denied
It's now I know do I stay or do I go
And it is finally I decide
That I'll be leaving
In the fairest of the seasons

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

( The Smiths / Cover )

Take me out tonight
Where there's music and there's people
Who are young and alive

Driving in your car
I never, never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Anymore

Take me out tonight
'Cause I want to see people
And I want to see lights

Driving in your car
Oh please, don't drop me home
Because it's not my home, it's their home
And I'm welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care

And in the darkened underpass, I thought
Oh God, my chance has come at last
But then a strange fear gripped me
And I just couldn't ask
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care

Driving in your car
I never, never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
I haven't got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Oh there is a light that never goes out
There is a light that never goes out
There is a light that never goes out
There is a light that never goes out

Thousand

( Noble House EP )

It's not supposed to feel right
And broken at the same time
A thousand lights that dance
Out of my heart to you each time

What do you have to ask me
Maybe then you don't feel
The thousand pins and needles
That I feel near you each time

It's just my mouth
It's just a word
And what is that
How does it hurt
How does it hurt

I'm not supposed to need what
I've never had to know it
A thousand thoughts that crawl
Out of the dark to lie with me

I'm not supposed to say it
The way my head replays it
A thousand words and none of them
That I can say out loud
But out loud is how I feels
Is what you hide
Just as real
Just as real

*** Thanx a lot to http://www.lieinthesound.fr for this one ***

To Be The One

( Idaho cover / Noble house EP )

Alive
When are you truly there
Do you think about the world
How far this time to be yourself
Must you go down the stream
Floating on the top is better
And you'll know just what you are

What you are talking about is pure
What you're talking about is pure
What you're talking about is pure

And what you're talking about must be
The dream beyond the words
It gives way and steers itself
How far this time to be the one
That you knew was always here
Won't you take the time to get it
So you'll know just what you are

What you're talking about is pure
What you're talking about is pure
What you're talking about is pure

What you're talking about
Will hang the sun every day to melt you down
Will hang the sun every day to melt you down

Vapour Trail

( Vapour Trail EP )

First you look so strong
Then you fade away
The sun will blind my eyes
I'll love you anyway
Thirsting for your smile
I loved you for a while
You are a vapour trail
In a deep, blue sky

Tremble with a sigh
Glitter in your eye
You seem to come and go
I never seem to know
And all my time
Is yours as much as mine
We never have enough time to show our love
