inside from you
and alarm bells ring.when you say your heart still sings.when your with me, oh darling please
forgive me
but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no
and all the memories of the pubs and the clubs, and the drugs and the tubs we shared together
will stay with me forever..
but all the highs and the lows and the to's and the fro's they left me dizzy oh wont you please
forgive me

but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no

well i no longer hear the music when the lights go out love goes cold in the shades of doubt the
strange fate in my mind its all too clear, music when the lights come on the girl i thought i
knew has gone, and with her my heart it dissapeard

well i no longer hear the music oh no no no no and all the memories of the fights and the nights
and the blue lights and the kites we flew together i thought theyd fly forever

but all the highs and the lows and the to's and the fro's they left me dizzy oh wont you please
forgive me

but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no

well i no longer hear the music when the lights go out love goes cold in the shades of doubt the
strange fate in my mind its all too clear

i no longer hear the music when the lights go out the girl i thought i knew has gone and with
her my heart has disapeard
but i no longer hear the music oh no no no no and i no longer hear the music

But you think that it's just me teasing you

Song: The White Stripes - Blue Orchid
Album: Get Behind Me Satan (2005)
Label: XL Recordings

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Something better than nothing
Something better than nothing, it's giving up
We all need to do something
Try to keep the truth from showing up

How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?
How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?

You're given a flower
But I guess there's just no pleasing you
Your lip tastes sour
But you think that it's just me teasing you

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway
Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

All the lights are comin’ on now
How I wish that it would snow now
I don’t feel like going home now

I wish that I could stay

I wish that I could walk...
I wish that I could walk you home

All the lights are comin’ on now

I don’t feel like going home now
I wish that I could stay

Santas coming to town
with sequins in his hair

Come with me and I will show what not to be, where not to go

Song: Echo and the Bunnymen - Hide & Seek
Album: Flowers (2001)
Label: Cooking Vinyl

Hide and seek, cloak and find
All the colours in your mind
Tied together, Sunday's clown
Traced and feathered, laced and bound

It's you now... yeah
Everybody's looking for you now... yeah

I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my feet back off the ground

Come with me and I will show
What not to be, where not to go
Chase the shadows, through black holes
Find the darkness, in your soul

It's me now... yeah
Everybody says it was me now...yeah
Everybody's looking for me now

I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my feet back off the ground
I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my head back in the clouds

Hide and seek, cloak and find
All the colours in your mind
Tied together, Sunday's clown
Traced and feathered, laced and bound

I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my feet back off the ground
I know you know we know I'm going down
Help me get my head back in the clouds

Is anybody home?

Song: The Stone Roses - Made of stone
Album: The Stone Roses (1989)
Label: Silvertone Records

Your knuckles whiten on the wheel
The last thing that your hands will feel
Your final flight can't be delayed

Nowhere, just sky it's so serene
Your pink fat lips let go a scream
You fry and melt I love the scene

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Is anybody home?

I'm standing warm against the cold
Now that the flames have taken hold
At least you left your life in style

And for as far as I can see
Ten twisted grills grin back at me
Bad money dies I love the scene

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Is anybody home?

Sometimes I fantasize
When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Don't these times fill your eyes

When the streets are cold and lonely
And the cars they burn below me
Are you all alone
Are you made of stone?

In my mind I'm leaving this town

Song: French Films - Take You With Me
Album: Golden Sea EP (2010)
Label: GAEA Records

Even though I can't get out
In my mind I'm leaving this town
And I can't stay no more
Am I ever gonna be sane again

Everybody says they've seen it all
Everybody knows everything
But all the time won't change you in my eyes
All the drugs don't do anything, no

And I can't take you with me
Oh I can't take you with me, no
And I can't take you with me
How I wish I could take you with me now

Oh you see I can't get out
But in my mind I'm leaving this town
I can't stay no more
Am I ever gonna be sane again

Like a kid I'm lying and waiting
Like a kid I'm lying and waiting
For the summer time to get around
And it's been pretty serious

And I can't take you with me
Oh I can't take you with me, no
And I can't take you with me
How I wish I could take you with me now

Follow me, won't you hold my hand?

Song: Iwan Rheon - Follow me
Album: Tongue Tied EP (2010)
Label: AWAL (Artists Without A Label) Distribution

Set off tomorrow well I wish you well
With your handful of wild flowers on the road to hell

Follow me I say hold my hand
Follow me to this righteous land
Set off tomorrow on the road to hell
With a picture in your pocket of the wishing well

Follow me, you say hold my hand
Follow me to righteous land
Where all your fears are in your eyes
All your foes are on your side

Well I set off this morning with you thank you sweet
For the slither of alcohol to ground my fear

Follow me now I understand
Follow me won't you hold my hand

Cause threes no point writing fables of how we should be
When the clouds gave condensation and you hand to me

Follow me now I understand
Follow my sweet part is out
When all your fears are in your eyes
All your foes are on your side

We slipped into the sun on a summer’s day
Left the cake house to feel I’m dreaming away
You know this morning taste so sweet
Cause the ground beneath my feet and the air I breathe
Well maybe that’s something we’ll never believe
When all your fears are in your eyes
All your foes are on your side

I am you and you are me

Song: Depeche Mode - I Am You
Album: Exciter (2001)
Label: Mute Records

You have bound my heart with subtle chains
So much pleasure that it feels like pain
So entwined now that we can't shake free
I am you and you are me

No escaping from the mess we're in
So much pleasure that it must be sin
I must live with this reality
I am yours eternally

There's no turning back
We're in this trap
No denying the facts
No, no, no
No excuses to give
I'm the one you're with
We've no alternative
No, no, no

Dark obsession in the name of love
This addiction that we're both part of
Leads us deeper into mystery
Keeps us craving endlessly

Strange compulsions that I can't control
Pure possession of my heart and soul
I must live with this reality

I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me
I am you and you are me

There's no turning back
We're in this trap
No denying the facts
No, no, no
No excuses to give
I'm the one you're with
We've no alternative
No, no, no

Now I can talk, no one gets off

Song: Two Door Cinema Club - I Can Talk
Album: Tourist History (2010)
Label: Kitsuné Music

You won't believe what I tell you,
White coats and clever minds will choose
You get a lot from this
Loose tongue and arrogance
It's not appropriate
Don't think that this is it

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

A longer sentence brings no more
Than one that I had said before
It's hard to compromise
When I see through your eyes
It's just a common view
I guess it's lost on you

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

Now I can talk, no one gets off
(I know how you like to)
Now I can talk, no one gets off
(repeat)

Album: El Camino (2011)
Label: Nonesuch Records

wake up

i used to say i need you
but i gotta leave you

[chorus]
sister, sister what did they do to you
sister, sister what did they do to you
did they take and try to break
a heart that long
it’s so wrong

hung up
got me hung up in draft
rung up
got me rung up in bed

you took that handy job
the one who showed you love

[chorus]
sister, sister what did they do to you
sister, sister what did they do to you
did they take and try to break
a heart that long
it’s so wrong
so wrong
so long

I am indecisive and that's about it

Song: The Cribs - I'm a Realist
Album: Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever (2007)
Label: Wichita Recording

I'm a realist
I'm a romantic
I'm an indecisive piece of shit

I'm a realist
I'm a romantic
I am indecisive and that's about it

and you dream that's the same thing
that's the same life you lead
I don't agree and so you drink
don't wanna think
that's cos your mind is already made up

I'm a realist
I'm a romantic
I'm an indecisive piece of shit

I admit it
I'm up to my old tricks
did you see her eyes (oh no I tried)
she looked surprised

and you dream that's the same thing
that's the same life you lead
I don't agree and so you drink
don't wanna think
that's cos your mind is already made up

how you dream that's the same thing
that's the same life you lead
I don't agree and so you
drink don't wanna think
that's cos your mind is already made up

no

I know that it's only a matter of time
before you know it I'll be leaving town
see it in my eyes
no one will do
no one will ever do

I know that it's only a matter of time
before you know it I'll be leaving town
seen it in your eyes
no one will ever do
no one will ever do for you

So confidence speaks from a thousand fools

Song: Bauhaus - Silent hedges
Album: The Sky's Gone Out (1982)
Label: Beggars Banquet

Following the silent hedges
needing some other kind of madness
looking into purple eyes
sadness at the corners
works of art with a minimum of steels

pure sensations
a beautiful downgrade
going to hell again
going to hell again

So confidence speaks from a thousand fools
thoughts of civilizations
burning the brilliant paradise soaked dreams
mindlessly hails to the electric cloak

what happens when the intoxication of success has evaporated?
following the silent hedges
following the silent hedges
going to hell again

pure sensation
the beautiful downgrade
going to hell again
going to hell again
again (x5)

My thoughts were so loud, I couldn't hear my mouth

Song: Modest Mouse - The World At Large
Album: Good News for People Who Love Bad News (2004)
Label: Epic Records

Ice-age heat wave, can't complain.
If the world's at large, why should I remain?
Walked away to another plan.
Gonna find another place, maybe one I can stand.
I move on to another day, to a whole new town with a whole new way.
Went to the porch to have a thought.
Got to the door and again, I couldn't stop.
You don't know where and you don't know when.
But you still got your words and you got your friends.
Walk along to another day.
Work a little harder, work another way.

Well uh-uh baby I ain't got no plan.
We'll float on maybe would you understand?
Gonna float on maybe would you understand?
Well I'll float on maybe would you understand?

The days get shorter and the nights get cold.
I like the autumn but this place is getting old.
I pack up my belongings and I head for the coast.
It might not be a lot but I feel like I'm making the most.
The day's get longer and the nights smell green.
I guess it's not surprising but it's spring and I should leave.

I like songs about drifters - books about the same.
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane.
Walked on off to another spot.
I still haven't got anywhere that I want.
Did I want love? Did I need to know?
Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow?

The moths beat themselves to death against the lights.
Adding their breeze to the summer nights.
Outside, water like air was great.
I didn't know what I had that day.
Walk a little farther to another plan.
You said that you did, but you didn't understand.

I know that starting over is not what life's all about.
But my thoughts were so loud, I couldn't hear my mouth.
My thoughts were so loud, I couldn't hear my mouth.
My thoughts were so loud.

Dark winters wear you down

Song: The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Young Adult Friction
Album: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (2009)
Label: Slumberland Records

Between the stacks in the library
Not like anyone stopped to see
We came they went our bodies spent
Among the dust and the microfiche
Dark winters wear you down
Up again to see the dawn
In your worn sweat shirt
And your mothers old skirt
It's enough to turn my studies down

Now that you feel
You say it's not real
(repeat)

I never thought I would come of age
Let alone on a moldy page
You put your back to the spines
And you said it was fine
If there's nothing really left to say
You're taking toffee with your vicodin
Something sweet to forget about him
If you go your own way
I will go my own way
And well never speak of it again

Now that you feel
You say it's not real
(repeat)

Don't check me out (repeat)

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance

Song: The Kinks - Lola
Album: Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One (1970)
Label: Pye Record

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca-Cola
C-O-L-A cola
She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a DARK BROWN voice she said Lola
L-O-L-A Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Well I'm not the world's most physical guy
But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
Oh my Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Well I'm not dumb but I can't understand
Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man
Oh my Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Well we drank champagne and danced all night
Under electric candlelight
She picked me up and sat me on her knee
And said little boy won't you come home with me
Well I'm not the world's most passionate guy
But when I looked in her eyes well I almost fell for my Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

I pushed her away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Well I looked at her and she at me

Well that's the way that I want it to stay
And I'll always want it to be that way for my Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

Well I'd left home just a week before
And I'd never ever kissed a woman before
But Lola smiled and took me by the hand
And said little boy I'm gonna make you a man

Well I'm not the world's most masculine man
But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man
And so is Lola
Lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola
Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola lo-lo-lo-lo Lola

I'll be swifter than the speed of light

Song: St. Vincent - The Apocalypse Song
Album: Actor(2009)
Label: 4AD

Wait
I'll be swifter than the speed of light
Carbon my body a billion years of time
You wake with the stitches over both your eyes
And deny me my body and all earthly delights

It's time
You are light
I guess you are afraid of what everyone is made of

All your praying moments amount to just one breath
Please keep your victory
But give me little death

It's time
You are light
I guess you are afraid of what everyone is made of

So take to the streets with apocalypse refrain
Your devotion has the look of a lunatic's gaze

Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess

Song: David Bowie - Rebel Rebel
Album: Diamond Dogs (1974)
Label: RCA Records

You've got your mother in a whirl
She's not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's go out tonight
You like me, and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

Don't ya?
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

You've got your mother in a whirl 'cause she's
Not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
Hey babe, let's stay out tonight
You like me, and I like it all
We like dancing and we look divine
You love bands when they're playing hard
You want more and you want it fast
They put you down, they say I'm wrong
You tacky thing, you put them on

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

Don't ya?
Oh?

Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo

Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!

You've torn your dress, your face is a mess
You can't get enough, but enough ain't the test
You've got your transmission and your live wire
You got your cue line and a handful of ludes
You wanna be there when they count up the dudes
And I love your dress
You're a juvenile success
Because your face is a mess
So how could they know?
I said, how could they know?

So what you wanna know
Calamity's child, chi-chile, chi-chile
Where'd you wanna go?
What can I do for you? Looks like you've been there too
'Cause you've torn your dress
And your face is a mess
Oh, your face is a mess
Oh, oh, so how could they know?
Eh, eh, how could they know?
Eh, eh

But the music always gives me a lift

Song: Elbow - Leaders Of The Free World
Album: Leaders of the Free World (2005)
Label: V2 Records

I'm sick of working for a living
I'm just ticking off the days till I die
Oh, I miss you Louise, yeah...
And the sickest little pleasures keep me going in between pulling teeth

Oh periscope up
I've been looking for a ladder
I need to see the commander in chief
And remind him what was passed onto me

Your mum don't sleep!
And the friends you keep!
I didn't raise a thief!
I didn't raise a thief!

But the leaders of the free world
Are just little boys throwing stones
And it's easy to ignore
Till they're walking on the door of your home

My thinking isn't driven
But the music always gives me a lift
I'm so easy to please, yeah
But I think we dropped the baton like the 60's didn't happen, oh no!

Oh periscope up
Should be looking for a ladder
I need to see the commander in chief
And remind him what was passed onto YOU AND me

Your mum don't sleep!
And the friends you keep!
I didn't raise a thief!
I didn't raise a thief!

But the leaders of the free world
Are just little boys throwing stones
And it's easy to ignore
Till they're knocking on the door of your homes

But the leaders of the free world
Are just little boys throwing stones
And it's easy to ignore
Till they're knocking on the door of your homes

Passing the gun from father to feckless son
We're climbing a landslide where only the good die young
Passing the gun from father to feckless son
we're passing the gun from father to freckless son X2

Song: Belle & Sebastian - I Love My Car
Album: I'm Waking Up to Us EP (2001)
Label: Jeepster Records

I love my car
I'll admit today I've gone too far
To enamour myself of my little motor car

I love my dog
I love my pussy cat, I love the rat
That lives under the floor and makes his bed from novelettes

I wish I could say the same for you
The day will come soon when I look in your eyes but
I won't see you

I've got a head like a soaking sponge
I've got a tongue like a little slug
I won't be bugged by trivia

I love my Carl
I love my Brian my Dennis and my Al
I could even find it in my heart to love Mike Love

I wish I could say the same for you
The day will come soon when I look in your eyes to
see you smiling

No they ain't working anymore

Song: Pulp - Razzmatazz
Album: Intro (1993)
Label: Island Records

The trouble with your brother,
he's always sleeping with your mother.
And I know that your sister missed her time again this month.
Am I talking too fast or are you just playing dumb?
If you want I can write it down.
It should matter to you,
cos aren't you the one,
with your razzmatazz and the nights on the town?

Oh you knew it, and you blew it didn't you babe?
I was lying when I asked you to stay.
Now no-one's gonna care,
if you don't call them when you said.
And he's not coming round tonight to try and talk you into bed.
And all those stupid little things,
they ain't working,
no they ain't working any more.

You started getting fatter,
three weeks after I left you.
And now you're going with some kid who looks like some bad comedian.
Are you gonna go out?
Or are you sitting at home eating boxes of Milk Tray?
Watch TV on your own, aren't you the one,
with your razzmatazz and your nights on the town?

And your father wants to help you doesn't he babe?
But your mother wants to put you away.
Now no-one's gonna care,
if you don't call them when you said.
And he's not coming round tonight to try and talk you into bed.
And all those stupid little things,
they ain't working,
no they ain't working any more.

Oh well I saw you at the doctor's,
waiting for a test.
You tried to look like some kind of heiress,
but your face is such a mess.
And now you're going to a party,
and you're leaving on your own.
Well, I'm sorry, but didn't you say,
that things go better with a little bit of razzamatazz?

And now no-one's gonna care,
if you don't call them when you said.
And he's not coming round tonight to try and talk you into bed.
Now it's half past ten in the evening,
and you wish that you were dead,
cos all those stupid little things,
they ain't working,
no they ain't working any more.

We'll meet again, we'll meet again

Song: The Doors - The Crystal Ship
Album: The Doors (1967)
Label: Rhino Entertainment

Before you slip into unconsciousness
I'd like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss

The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We'll meet again, we'll meet again


Oh tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You'd rather cry, I'd rather fly


The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand pills, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back, I'll drop a line

Come sail your ships around me

Song: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - The Ship Song
Album: The Good Son (1990)
Label: Mute Records

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

We talk about it all night long
We define our moral ground
But when I crawl into your arms
Everything comes tumbling down

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Your face has fallen sad now
For you know the time is nigh
When I must remove your wings
And you, you must try to fly

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Come loose your dogs upon me
And let your hair hang down
You are a little mystery to me
Every time you come around

You and me babe, how about it?

Song: Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet
Album: Making Movies (1980)
Label: Vertigo Records

A lovestruck Romeo, sings the streets of serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
Find a streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says something like, "You and me, babe, how about it?"

Juliet says, "Hey, it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack"
He's underneath the window, she's singing
Hey, la, my boyfriend's back"
You shouldn't come around here, singing up at people like that
Anyway what you gonna do about it?

Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start
And I bet and you exploded in my heart
And I forget, I forget the movie song
When you gonna realize, it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

Come up on different streets, they both were streets of shame
Both dirty, both mean, yes and the dream was just the same
And I dream your dream for you and now your dream is real
How can you look at me, as if I was just another one of your deals?

Well, you can fall for chains of silver, you can fall for chains of gold
You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin
Now you just say, "Oh, Romeo, yeah, you know
I used to have a scene with him"

Juliet, when we made love, you used to cry
You said, "I love you like the stars above, "I love you till I die"
There's a place for us, you know the movie song
When you gonna realize, it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

I can't do the talk like the talk on the TV
And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be
I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you
Can't do anything except be in love with you

And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
All I do is keep the beat, the bad company
And all I do is kiss you, through the bars of a rhyme
Juliet, I'd do the stars with you any time

Juliet, when we made love, you used to cry
You said, "I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die"
There's a place for us, you know the movie song
When you gonna realize, it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

A lovestruck Romeo, he sings the streets of serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made
Find a convenient streetlight, steps out of the shade
He says something like, "You and me, babe, how about it?"

You hear laughter cracking through the walls

Song: Siouxsie And The Banshees - Spellbound
Album: Juju (1981)
Label: Polydor

From the cradle bars
Comes a beckoning voice
It sends you spinning
You have no choice

You hear laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced
Spellbound

And don't forget
When your elders forget
To say their prayers
Take them by the legs
And throw them down the stairs

When you think
Your toys have gone beserk
It's an illusion
You cannot shirk
You hear laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice
Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced
Spellbound

And it looks like we might have made it

Song: Blur - To The End
Album: Parklife (1994)
Label: Parlophone

All these dirty words
They make us look so dumb
Been drinking far too much
And neither of us mean what we say

(chorus)
Well you and I
Collapsed in love
And it looks like we might have made it, yes it looks like we've made it to the end

What happened to us
Soon it will be gone forever
Infatuated only with ourselves
And neither of us can think straight anymore

We’re no architects, but we pretend

Song: The Noise - Deus Ex Machina
Album: -
Label: -
More info: Azi au primul lor concert in Music Pub. Ne vedem acolo!

Should the sun explode
We’d all say good night
For the very last time

It’s not me that’s changed, it’s you that finally listens
Now every word is a pyramid scheme we wrote
With broken arms and broken legs we’d run
Calm down.

Turning, turning, turning
Boxes into houses
We’re no architects, but we pretend
Tend to say, friend

You know we play with words like they’re broken toys
We try, we medicate at metaphors.

Should the sun explode
We’d all say good night
For the very last time

Turning, turning, turning
Boxes into houses
We’re no architects, but we pretend
Tend to say…

Should the sun
Should the sun

Should the sun explode
We’d all say good night
For the very last time

Should the sun explode
We’d all say good night
For the very last time

Steals my mind and hides it in her garden

Song: The Chameleons - The fan and bellows
Album: This Never Ending Now (2002)
Label: Paradiso Records

A Beecher's Brook is love
A hurdle at which greater men have fallen
She manipulates
Steals my mind and hides it in her garden

But now
Only love can bring me down
Somehow
Somehow love must bring me down
I've become the fan and the bellows

Cupid masturbates
Absent of all thought and of all reason
Shoots me in the back
I think perhaps it must be shooting season

But now
Only love can bring me down
Somehow
Somehow love must bring me down
I've become the fan and the bellows

Not me...
Not me...

But now
Only love can bring me down
I've become the fan and the bellows
Somehow love must bring me down
I've become the fan and the bellows
Alternative Lyrics from Marks songbook (Dearest dead days):

A Beecher's Brook is love
A hurdle at which greater men
Have fallen
She manipulates
Steals my mind
And hides it in her garden

But now
Only love can bring her down
Somehow
Somehow love will bring me down
I've become the fan and the bellows

Cupid masturbates
Absent of all thought
And of all reason
Shoots me in the back
I think perhaps
It must be shooting season

Stop smoking that

Song: Babyshambles - Lost Art Of Murder
Album: Shotter's Nation (2007)
Label: Parlophone

Roll a four
Roll a nine
Find yourself washed up in paradise

But like before
You didn't mind
Someone else washed up in paradise

If i really did

What a nice day for a murder
You call yourself a killer but the only thing your killing is your time
There's nothing absurder
A bird is just a burden
To your heart your soul your body, spirit and mind

Don't look at me like that
She won't take you back
You said to much
You been to unkind
Get up off your back
Stop smoking that
You could change your life
You just might change your mind

Could roll a four
Could roll a nine
Find yourself washed up in paradise

All the fours
And all the nines
I lost my phone in paradise

It's big as you go

What a nice day for a murder
Say you're a killer, the only thing your killing is time
It's nothing absurder
A bird is a burden
To your heart your soul your body, spirit and mind

Don't look at me like that
She won't take you back
You done to much
You been to unkind
Get up off your back
Stop smoking that
You could change your life
Do you think they'll change their minds

Throughout any type of weather

Song: The Raconteurs - Together
Album: Broken Boy Soldiers (2006)
Label: Third Man Records


You and me forever
We belong together
And we'll always endeavor
Throughout any type of weather

You want everything to be just like
The stories that you read but never write
You gotta learn to live and live and learn
You gotta learn to give and wait your turn
Or you'll get burned

You wrote our names down on the sidewalk
The rain came and washed 'em off
So we should write 'em again on wet cement
So maybe people a long time from now will know what we meant

You want every morning to be just like
The stories that you read but never write
You gotta learn to live and live and learn
You gotta learn to give and wait your turn
My only concern

I'm adding something new to the mixture
So there's a different hue to your picture
A different ending to this fairytale
When the sunset into which we sail

You want everything to be just like
The stories that you read but you can't write
You gotta learn to live and live and learn
You gotta learn to give and wait your turn
Or you'll get burned

Simple math, it's how our bodies even got here

Song: Manchester Orchestra - Simple Math
Album: Simple Math (2011)
Label: Favorite Gentlemen Recordings

Hunter eyes
I'm lost and hardly noticed, slight goodbye
I want to rip your lips off in my mouth
And even in my greatest moment doubt
The line between deceit and right now

Simple math, it's how our bodies even got here
Sinful math, the ebb and flow to multiply
What if I was wrong and no one cared to mention
What if it was true and all we thought was right was wrong?
Simple math, the truth cannot be fractioned
Either way...

I imply to mitigate the guilt, we could align
A perfectly constructed alibi
To hush the violent guilt that eats and never dies
In actual blame, they call me once the dark divides

Simple math, it's why our bodies even lay here
Sinful math, the truth cannot be fashioned
What if you were crazy, would we have to listen then?

What if we've been trying to get to where we’ve always been?
What if I was wrong, and started trying to fix it?
What if you believed me? Everything is brilliant

Oh, oh, oh

What if I’ve been trying to get to where I’ve always been?
What if we’ve been trying to get to where we’ve always been?
Simple math, believe me, all is brilliant
What if we've been trying to kill the noise and silence?

What if I was wrong and you had never questioned it?
What if it was true, that all we thought was right, was wrong?
Simple math, the truth cannot be fractioned
I imply I've got to get it back then

Oh, oh, oh

And so we sink so far down

Song: Warpaint - Lissie's Heart Murmur
Album: The Fool (2011)
Label: Rough Trade Records

On the edge of the water where the ships pass by
and the sound of your laughter in the endless sky
tips my head back, full of swimming thoughts
beneath deep breathing that sinks so far down
that sings so far down

and I handle my business and I know the prize
is of no consequence. You have looked with your eyes
wide open to what's inside, that sinks so far down

I'm in two

I went looking, went searching under the water
sinking and pushing, till you pulled me under
to where you are, to where we build our house
and so we sink so far down
and we can't go back now, can't go back now

on the edge of the water where the ships pass by
and the sound of your laughter in the endless sky
tips my head back, full of swimming thoughts
beneath deep breathing

now I stay holding this honesty with you

I went looking, went searching under the water
sinking and pushing, till you pulled me under
to where you are, to where we build our house
and so we sink so far down
and we can't go back now

sink so far down when I know you're around
and I can't go back now, can't go back now

Album: One Thousand Pictures (2011)
Label: Stolen Recordings

In The Winter hollow time
You feel bitter thats your sign
You're a problem comes to mind

Washing Powder

of somebody I thought was behind me

Yes they came back pushing the knife in
slow down you're caught in a whirlwind

trying to work it out in the end dear

Hey don't just stand there
There's no point in empty hands
Where's your boy tonight
Wonder do you realize
what you have done
cos I'm not pretending
no more tricks and no more games
my tails between my legs now

Yes you keep talking and talking
looking nice and isnt it boring
then somebody else whose wearing your perfume
walks past and it really confuses me

So come back stop pushing the knife in
slow down you're caught in a whirlwind
I will hire a private detective
trying to work it out in the end dear

Hey don't just stand there
There's no point in empty hands
Where's your boy tonight
Wonder do your realise
what you have done
cos I'm not pretending
no more tricks and no more games
my tails between my legs now

Look Look at your hair well thats not you

Is that your washind powder
little voice I hear getting louder
its one stupide thing to remind me
of somebody I thought was behind me

Yes she came back pushing the knife in
slow down you're caught in a whirlwind
I will hire a private detective
trying to work it out in the end dear

It could be a wonderful thing

Song: Foster the People - Love
Album: Torches (2011)
Label: Columbia Records


Hello, my name is Mark
It's a gentlemen's games
And I can slip through and creepin'
Through the night's parade
I'll shake a hand or two
I'll tip my hat to you
I'm always runnin' and a-jumpin'
Like a fool who would do
On through the wild, I see her
She sees me
What we can be something, it's exciting
I wanna run away
But I don't move, I stay
I talk to her, I say
You you were meant for me
Oh I can't speak, I think I'm falling in

Love, love, love
It could be a wonderful thing
Love, love
It can make you crazy
Love love love
It could be an incredible thing
Love love love
If you have it it's amazing

Sarah, she's a cougar
Got moves like barracudas
On the hunt for the runs
That left gone the twenty-to-yas
Got her head up high
High heels that match her thighs
And she be spending lots of money
Her friends, think she's real funny
She says "hey look at me"
"You will see that I'm a queen"
Got experience to give
All the life you never lived
But all the boys just run
She never has her fun
Oh yeah, but Sarah
She don't care, she keeps looking
Cause she's hoping for

Love, love, love
It could be a wonderful thing
Love, love
It can make you crazy
Love love love
It could be an incredible thing
Love love love
If you have it it's amazing

Oooh ooh ooh oooh ooh yeah yeah [x2]

I got the fever
Got the fever
Got the fever yeah,
I said she's got the fever
Got the fever
Yeah, I'm falling in love
You got the fever
Got the fever
Got the fever
I said got the fever
Got the fever
Yeah I'm falling in

Love, love, love
It could be a wonderful thing
Love, love
It can make you crazy
Love love love
It could be an incredible thing
Love love love
If you have it it's amazing

Album: Volume One (2008)
Label: Merge Records


Saw your face, my hand you took
Just like in a storybook
And you've got me
Yeah, you've got me

I can't even argue
Couldn't 'cause it's true
Now you've got me
Yeah, you've got me

Got me tucked up in your pocket
Don't know how you won my heart
'cause I'd locked it
Yeah, I'd locked it

I can feel your heartbeat
Where I lay my head
'cause you've got me
Yeah you've got me
X2

Got me tucked up in your pocket
Don't know how you won my heart
'cause I'd locked it
Yeah, I'd locked it

There's someone who's loved you forever but you don't know it.

Song: Kate Bush - Among angels
Album: 50 Words for Snow (2011)
Label: Fish People

Only you can do something about it.
There's no-one there, my friend, any better.
I might know what you mean when you say you fall apart.
Aren't we all the same? In and out of doubt.
I can see angels standing around you.
They shimmer like mirrors in Summer.
But you don't know it.
And they will carry you o'er the walls.
If you need us, just call.
Rest your weary world in their hands.
Lay your broken laugh at their feet.
I can see angels around you.
They shimmer like mirrors in Summer.
There's someone who's loved you forever but you don't know it.
You might feel it and just not show it.

Just don't come home and say you've been asleep

Song: Mazzy Star - Common Burn
Album: -
Label: Rough Trade Records

Simple things like your overcoat
And your beauty
That still are burnin' me
Let me hang around
Even if it's just some way
To have some common burn
A common burn
So I spend the night in someone's house
That you glowed in
Oh simple me that you fled
But we have haven't a clue
That common burn
That common burn
Aware of arms
I've seen yours
So many times before
You could sit around
And have everything that you score
Just don't come home and say you've been asleep
When you know you're burnin' someone
That common burn
That common burn
You know we have

This merry-go-round has spun itself into the ground

Song: Hot Hot Heat - Future Breeds
Album: Future Breeds (2010)
Label: Dangerbird Records

I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore

Across the bridge on Abbott Strip
There lives a man with atlas grip
Windows covered, single mattress
On Friday nights he feeds his actress

Across the bridge on Abbott Street
There lives this girl she used to be
Still half naked she falls in traffic
You dumb ass kid here's your dumb ass life back

I won't come back crawling again
I won't come back crawling again
No I won't come back crawling again
Won't come back crawling again

I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore

Some may fear just your name
For me I wish it was the same
I'm still waiting for somebody
To fix this damage to my body

Some may fear the future breeds
these drunken sailors planting seeds
I'll just need this cheque to clear
So I can check right out of here

Believe me I won't come back crawling again
I won't come back crawling again
I won't come back crawling again
I won't come back crawling again

This merry-go-round has spun itself into the ground
And an eighth of me knows that an eighth of this ilfe
Is still fun as hell

But they breed you better babe
Bred you better
They bred you better than me

They breed you better babe
Bred you better
Bred you better than me

I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore
I won't say anything
I won't say anymore

They breed you better babe
Bred you better
They bred you better than me

They breed you better babe
Bred you better
They bred you better than me

You were always so lost in the dark

Song: The Cure - Pictures of You
Album: Disintegration (1989)
Label: Fiction Records

I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
And I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel

Remembering you
Standing quiet in the rain
As I ran to your heart to be near
And we kissed as the sky fell in
Holding you close
How I always held close in your fear
Remembering you
Running soft through the night
You were bigger and brighter and whiter than snow
And screamed at the make-believe
Screamed at the sky
And you finally found all your courage
To let it all go

Remembering
You falling into my arms
Crying for the death of your heart
You were stone white
So delicate
Lost in the cold
You were always so lost in the dark
Remembering you
How you used to be
Slow drowned
You were angels
So much more than everything
Hold for the last time then slip away quietly
Open my eyes
But I never see anything

If only I'd thought of the right words
I could have held on to your heart
If only I'd thought of the right words
I wouldn't be breaking apart
All my pictures of you

Looking so long at these pictures of you
But I never hold on to your heart
Looking so long for the words to be true
But always just breaking apart
My pictures of you

There was nothing in the world
That I ever wanted more
Than to feel you deep in my heart
There was nothing in the world
That I ever wanted more
Than to never feel the breaking apart
All my pictures of you

Pack your bag, run away...along a freeway, out of town

Song: Madrugada - Electric
Album: Industrial Silence (1999)
Label: Virgin Records


Pack your bag, run away
Along a freeway, out of town
Where you'd like and the night is over
It's alright

From despair, between the sheets
Spilling over, spinning round
Waiting still, in the street
Ain't it bitter, ain't it sweet, oh ho

Holding, holding on to you again
Holding, holding on to you again
No rushing, don't rush it, my love
Holding on, holding, holding on to you

Bet you lie, on your back
In the backseat of his car
Cattle black, pepper night
Dylan Thomas, pass around
Passing out on the floor
In the bathroom, black light vail
We don't need once again
Sing the song, sing
Drink the wine, love

Oh, well how long did we stay in there
Well I can't believe my eyes
Well how long did I take this
Well I can't hold on no, hold on

Holding, holding on to you again
Holding, holding on to you again
I'm ready, I'm ready, my love
Holding, holding on to you

My future is static

Song: Sonic Youth - Schizophrenia
Album: Sister (1987)
Label: SST Records


I went away to see an old friend of mine
His sister came over she was out of her mind
She said Jesus had a twin who knew nothing about sin
She was laughing like crazy at the trouble I'm in
Her light eyes were dancing she is insane
Her brother says shes just a bitch with a golden chain
She keeps coming closer saying I can feel it in my bones
Schizophrenia is taking me home

My future is static
Its already had it
I could tuck you in
And we can talk about it
I had a dream
And it split the scene
But I got a hunch
Its coming back to me

Let’s grow old together and die at the same time

Song: White Lies - To Lose My Life
Album: To Lose My Life... (2009)
Label: Fiction Records


He said to lose my life or lose my love,
That’s the nightmare I’ve been running from.
So let me hold you in my arms a while,
I was always careless as a child.
And there’s a part of me that still believes,
My soul will soar above the trees.
But a desperate fear flows through my blood,
That our dead loves buried beneath the mud.

Let’s grow old together,
And die at the same time.
Let’s grow old together,
And die at the same time.

I said I’ve got no time I have to go,
And I was more right then now I’ll ever know.
He said my heart is faint, will minds regret,
And left him crying next to the chapels steps.

Let’s grow old together,
And die at the same time.

Let’s grow old together,
And die at the same time.

He said?

Let’s grow old together,
And die at the same time.
Let’s grow old together,
And die at the same time.

He said?

He said to lose my life or lose my love,
That’s the nightmare I’ve been running from.
So let me hold you in my arms a while,
I was careless as a child.
There’s a part of me that still believes,
My soul will soar above the trees.
A desperate fear flows through my blood,
Our dead loves buried beneath the mud.
A desperate fear flows through my blood,
Our dead loves buried beneath the mud

Ugly things through my mind they have passed

Song: dEUS - Roses
Album: In a Bar, Under the Sea (1996)
Label: Island Records


Rose said quote it's time to make a mess
Time will be soon mine in time I guess
She's painting on my back a beautiful flowerpot
And she treats me she treats me she treats me like her local god

Rose said quote it's time to make a mess
This one's yours and yours is self obsessed
She's painting on my back a green tom, the beefheart one
And she cuddles and she coos and she cuts the bullshit I confessed

She said: "Don't look my way"
What can I possibly say
I've never seen you before today
I'm just the one that makes you think of the one
that makes you feel you're the one"

But thank you for the roses, for the roses
so thank you for the roses, for the roses
thank you for the roses, for the roses
thank you for the roses, for the roses

Rose said quote it's time to make a mess
remind me what it is that I do best
She's painting on my back some beautiful something sweet
And she treats me she treats me she beats me

Rose said quote my time has come at last
Ugly things through my mind they have passed
She's scratching on my back 'if this boy believes me'
She leaves me, deceives me and takes those flowers just to please me.....

Rose don't mind where she been
She been blind
She been mine
All this time
She been kind
She been mine
She said: "Thank you for the roses, for the roses" (just to please me)
Thank you for the roses, for the roses(just to please me)
Thank you for the roses, for the roses(just to please me)
Thank you for the roses, for the roses(just to please me)
Thank you.

Wrap yourself around me

Song: The Grates - Turn Me On
Album: Secret Rituals (2011)


It all started long ago, we have staples deep they go, to an pasture vivid
Green, to a slow moving stream.

I will have you justify, drawing on your baby teeth, swing me lightly start
My fire, I will roar.

Wrap yourself around me, do it just define me, do it to ignite me, do it as
A friend. Anyway you want to, anyway you need to, I can hold my breath,
Turn me on, turn me on.

Crawl inside your ancient eyes, feel your power it's a gift, swing me
Gently light my fire, I will grow.

Wrap yourself around me, do it justify me, do it to ignite me, do it as a
Friend. anyway you want to, anyway you need to, I can skew it backwards,
Turn me on, turn me on.

Turn me on...

Is there a fire on the mountain?

Song: Cass McCombs - My Sister, My Spouse
Album: Catacombs (2009)
Label: Domino Records


My sister, my spouse, are you comfortable with these words?
To me, they still seem to jingle like the pair of a badman's spurs

My sister, my spouse, you're burning at both ends
I said, "Is there a fire on the mountain?"
You replied, "Well that all depends"

You know, our parents' heroes are all movie actors
Necks tilted up to the angel of light
I can admit to the same allure

They say movies deal with archetypes
You know, I'll try on any mask
Brother, Son, Husband
A separate face for separate tasks

Death-card, Scorpio, Little devil
Villain is obviously most fun
Singer, Poet, Publicman
Well, easier said than done

Do-nothing, Roop-scoop, Mooch
Hell, I can take it
Loyal friend and confidant
Honey, I could never fake it

"My sister, my spouse": Rules of engagement!
You've been working so hard
We need a change, I can take a hint

Write down on these tears of newspaper
Words you would like to see disappear
Let ash fly above the rusty stovetop
I'm going to start with the word "sincere"
My sister, my spouse

But you carved out a name; you carved out a name for yourself

Song: Perfume Genius - Lookout, Lookout
Album: Learning (2010)
Label: Matador Records

LMary, Mary-belle within a bird-cage cell,
All your neighbors know what your mother sells
But you carved out a name; you carved out a name for yourself

Look out, look out
Look out, look out
Look out, look out
Look out, look out
Look out, look out
There are murders about

Guinea pig in a twisted mouth
Through a hole to the railway
And Brian’s face down
Keep your wits
He will not be missed
He didn’t have a family to begin with

Look out, look out
Look out, look out
Look out, look out
Look out, look out
Look out, look out
There are murders about

A false memory would be everything.

Song: Mogwai - Take me somewhere nice
Album: Rock Action (2001)
Label: Matador Recordings

Ghosts in the photograph
never lied to me.

I'd be all of that
I'd be all of that.

A false memory
would be everything.
A denial my eliminent.

What was that for?
What was that for?

What would you do
if you saw spaceships
over Glasgow?
Would you fear them?

Every aircraft,
every camera,
is a wish that
wasn't granted.

What was that for?
What was that for?

Try to be bad.
Try to be bad.

Don't ask me how you're supposed to feel

Song: Tame Impala - Solitude Is Bliss
Album: Innerspeaker (2010)
Label: Modular Recordings (2010)

Cracks in the pavement underneath my shoe
I care less and less about and less about you
No one else around to look at me
So I can look at my shadow as much as I please

All the kicks that I can't compare to
Making friends like you're all supposed to

You will never come close to how I feel
You will never come close to how I feel

Space around me where my soul can breathe
I've got body that my mind can leave
Nothing else matters, I don't care what I miss
Company's okay
Solitude is bliss

There's a party in my head and no one is invited

And you will never come close to how I feel
You will never come close to how I feel

Movement doesn't flow
Quite like it does when I'm alone
I'll be the one who's free
You and all your friends
Can watch me, today

Don't ask me how you're supposed to feel

You will never come close to how I feel
You will never come close to how I feel
You will never come close to how I feel
You will never come close to how I fee

Echoes from the otherworld turn horizons into endless ever present

Song: Klaxons - Echoes
Album: Surfing the Void (2010)
Label: Polydor Records


Send out a sound for the wood between the worlds
Gently repeat as the boundaries start to swirl
Keep to the call that is twice now liminal
It's not the same where the trails lead to the outer regions

Echoes from the otherworld turn horizons into endless ever present
Echoes
Many otherworlds true horizon start to turn
Numberless names withe the force of the ninth wave
Keep to the call that's repeated in the outer regions
Echoes from the otherworld turn the horizon into endless ever present
Echoes
Many otherworlds true horizon makes the endless ever
Present echoes into otherworlds true horizons into the endless ever
Present echoes
Many otherworlds true horizon takes a turn
Echoes reflect and change they serenade

Here am I floating round my tin can far above the Moon

Song: David Bowie- Space Oddity (1969)
Album: David Bowie (1969)
Label: Mercury Records

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills
and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown,
engines on
Check ignition
and may God's love be with you

[spoken]
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff

This is Ground Control
to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule
if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past
one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much
she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead,
there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you....

Here am I floating
round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do.

Somewhere in her smile she knows that I don't need no other lover

Song: The Beatles - Something
Album: Abbey Road (1969)
Label: Apple Records

Something in the way she moves,
Attracts me like no other lover.
Something in the way she woos me.
I don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

Somewhere in her smile she knows,
That I don't need no other lover.
Something in her style that shows me.
I don't want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.

You're asking me will my love grow,
I don't know, I don't know.
Stick around, and it may show,
But I don't know, I don't know.

Something in the way she knows,
And all I have to do is think of her.
Something in the things she shows me.
I don't want to leave her now.
You know I believe and how.

One of us will die inside these arms

Song: Iron and Wine - Naked As We Came
Album: Our Endless Numbered Days (2004)
Label: Sub Pop Records

She says "wake up, it's no use pretending"
I'll keep stealing, breathing her.
Birds are leaving over autumn's ending
One of us will die inside these arms
Eyes wide open, naked as we came
One will spread our ashes 'round the yard

She says "If I leave before you, darling
Don't you waste me in the ground"
I lay smiling like our sleeping children
One of us will die inside these arms
Eyes wide open, naked as we came
One will spread our ashes round the yard

My hands are blessed to have touched the sun

Song: Local Natives - Sun Hands
Album: Gorilla Manor (2009)
Label: Frenchkiss Records

I climbed to the top of a hill
But I had just missed the sun
And although the descending arc was gone
Left behind were the traces that always follow along

The most beautiful colors chase the sun
They wrap her trail in a taunting gesture
That seems to sing out loud,
"this is what you're missing"

I'll endure the night
For the promise of light

I want to lift my hands towards the sun
Show me warmth
Baby, won't you show me warmth again?
And when I can feel with my sun hands
I'll promise not to lose her again
And even if the morning never comes
My hands are blessed to have touched the sun

And when I can feel with my sun hands
I promise not to lose her again

Don't look at me that way...it was an honest mistake

Maine plec la Peninsula, dar melodiile o sa apara in continuare pe blog :) Abia astept concertul Kasabian!

Song: The Bravery - An Honest Mistake
Album: The Bravery (2005)
Label: Island Records

People
They don't mean a thing to you
They move right through you
Just like your breath
But sometimes
I still think of you
And I just wanted to
Just wanted you to know
My old friend...
I swear I never meant for this
I never meant...

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

Sometimes
I forget I'm still awake
I fuck up and say these things out loud

My old friend...
I swear I never meant for this
I never meant...

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
Don't look at me that way
It was an honest mistake
An honest mistake

I love it when you sing to me and you...you can sing me anything

Song: Magnetic Fields - The Book Of Love
Album: 69 Love Songs (1999)
Label: Merge Records

The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It's full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing but

I...
I love it when you read to me and
You...
You can read me anything

The book of love has music in it
In fact that's where music comes from
Some of it is just transcendental
Some of it is just really dumb but

I...
I love it when you sing to me and
You...
You can sing me anything

The book of love is long and boring
And written very long ago
It's full of flowers and heart-shaped boxes
And things we're all too young to know but

I...
I love it when you give me things and
You...
You ought to give me wedding rings
I...
I love it when you give me things and
You...
You ought to give me wedding rings

I haven't slept a single night in over a month

Song: Hot Hot Heat - Middle Of Nowhere
Album: Elevator (2005)
Label: Sire Records


Don't get mad if I'm laughing
Blame the caffeine for all the 5 am phone calls
I haven't slept a single night in over a month
And not even once did you start to make sense to me
Well maybe I'm a little bit slow, or just consistently inconsistent
She said, "Unpredictability's my responsibility, baby."

But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out just like they hung out before
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway

To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere

They chewed me up and then they spit me out
And I'm not supposed to let it bother me
But maybe I'm a little bit weak - I let my frailty take the wheel
She said, "Maybe there's a bit of me waiting for a bit of you. baby."

But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out just like they hung out before
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway

To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere

But you're waiting at the door where everybody's hanging out just like they hung out before
You didn't have to do it but you did it to say
That you didn't have to do it but you would anyway

To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on when I go off back to the middle of nowhere
To give you something to go on - to go on back to the middle of nowhere

Bed clothes, why am I in bed clothes?

Song: Bishop Allen - Rain
Album: The Broken String (2007)
Label: Dead Oceans

Bed clothes, why am I in bed clothes?
Watching out the window
Watching what I don't know
On the fire escape now
Hands they start to shake now
Ready for the rail to break now
And I'm awake at last awake

Cursing, rattling and cursing
Go ahead and do your worst then
Your worst that I can take

Oh let the rain fall down
And wash this world away
Oh let the sky be grey
Cause if it's ever gonna get any better
It's gotta get worse for a day

Morning, where am I this morning?
Now it's really pouring,
Crawling up this shore
And I walk the neighborhood
And umbrella does no good
And I guess it's in my blood
Couldn't stop the flood

Drowning, everything is drowning
Go ahead and take the town
The town is yours to take

Oh let the rain fall down
And wash this world away
Oh let the sky be grey
Cause if it's ever gonna get any better
It's gotta get worse for a day

Calling, calling, falling, falling
Grab on my guitar
And paddle with both my arms
Headed where the voices are
I'll end up far so far away

Oh let the rain fall down
And wash this world away
Or let the sky be grey
Cause if it's ever gonna get any better
It's gotta get worse for a day

It's gotta get worse for a day
It's gotta get worse for a day
It's gotta get worse for a day
I know
It's gotta get worse for a day

Move along, get ahead, get her hand and bring her with you.

Song: Tegan And Sara - Hell
Album: Sainthood (2009)
Label: Sire Records

No, I'm not ready for a big bad step in their direction.
No, I'm not ready for downtown trash, avoid collection.
Four blocks, run and hide, don't walk alone at night.
Cityscape, city change before they die.
Four blocks, I should mention in a song if I want to get along with change,
Who doesn't wanna change this?

I know you feel it too, these words get overused.
When we get up and over it and over them,
Up and over it and over them.
I know you feel it too, it all seems so untrue.
When you get up and over it and over them,
Oh oh, hell no. Oh oh, hell no.

No, we're not ready for fair distribution, just a terminal solution for...
No, we're not ready for hell, hell no, for hell, hell no.

Four days, wide awake, why slide along and say.
Girl's afraid, girl will change, just move away.
Four days that I mention in a song, move along, get ahead, get her hand and bring her with you.

I know you feel it too, these words get overused.
When we get up and over it and over them,
Up and over it and over them.
I know you feel it too, it all seems so untrue.
When you get up and over it and over them,
Oh oh, hell no. Oh oh, hell no.

Four ways to remove all the bad that we do from the heart and the soul of the cities sad and cold.
Four ways to collect what we say and what we save to discard and discover a brand new way

I know you feel it too, these words get overused.
When we get up and over it and over them,
Up and over it and over them.
I know you feel it too, it all seems so untrue.
When you get up and over it and over them,
Up and over it and over them.

I know you feel it too, these words get overused.
When we get up and over it and over them,
Up and over it and over them.
I know you feel it too, it all seems so untrue.
When you get up and over it and over them,
Oh oh, hell no. Oh oh, hell no.
Oh oh, hell no. Oh oh, hell no.
