Lyrics

AS IF YOU DIDN’T ALREADY KNOW
I was sitting in my chair, waiting for your call / There was a forest fire burning, somewhere / There was war / There were pictures of a plane crash from the day before / Images of people, at the mall
I’m telling you / As if you didn’t already know / I’m still fond you / And I think about you / Most of the time / So what / As if you didn’t already know
Let me think about it, for a minute / There was a forest fire burning, somewhere / There was war / There were pictures of you, from the day before / Images of people, you could see them fall
I’m telling you / As if you didn’t already know / I’m still fond you / And I think about you / Most of the time / So what / As if you didn’t already know
I was waiting / Maybe faking / No, just waiting / Contemplating / When the roses die and the angels fly / I won’t go back again, with a dry eye
I’m telling you / As if you didn’t already know / I’m still fond you / And I think about you / Most of the time / So what / As if you didn’t already know

AWKWARD
This is awkward / Open territory / Don’t wait til February / I need you to cover time / For me
Golden brown and shiny cyan / Hello abstinence and denial / Please, don’t wait til I die / Come February, I’ll be fine
Kiss my demons Goodbye

BLIND MY MIND
Bring your head against the wall / So I can see where I will fall / Bring your mind into my head / Find your playing den
All in all it’s just a start / All we had was more than that / All in all I can’t go back / To where we started out
So bring my head up to Mont Blanc / So you will see what you would find / Bring my head against the wall / So you can see where I will go
All in all it’s just your fault / Made me feel respect no more / All in all I can’t go back / Blind My mind inside
Bring my mind inside your head / So you can see where I went then / Bring your head against the wall / So I can see where I will fall
All in all it’s just your fault / Made me feel respect no more / All in all I can’t go back / Blind My mind inside
All your lies, made me feel respect no more / All your lies, made me feel respect no more / All your lies, made me feel respect no more

BUMMED
I’m bummed for reason / Even the trees are mixing up the seasons / Everything will have to go before they close down the flower show / Only fakes will survive
The scene turning sour by the hour / The slow parade got lost in the crowd / And the ten ton trucks with the carnival lot got stuck in a jam / On the road, out of town
I’m bummed for time / And the rain pours down / On the broken parts and disjointed hearts all left behind / On the road, out of town
I’m bummed now / And i don’t know how / The ferris wheel stopped, the power switched off with me on the top / With a stranger, and a view
I’m bummed for time / And the rain pours down / On the broken parts and disjointed hearts all left behind / On the road, out of town
I say, Yes, I’m impressed / I’m impressed / But I’m still dressed
I’m bummed now / And the rain pours down / On the broken parts and disjointed hearts all left behind
And we wept, while the town went to sleep

BUS RIDE
First I climb a mountain high / Then I roam the seas / First I climb a mountain high / Then I roam the seas
We have secrets / In our secret world / We are lovers / In our secret world
Sometimes, I roam the streets alone / Run down borders / Run down hills, to see
We have secrets / In our secret world / We are lovers / In our secret world

CHANGE MY WAYS
I’ve got to change my ways / I’ve got to change my ways / I’ve got to change my ways
I’ve got to buy a new dress / And do my hair / My hair is everywhere these days / I’ve got to change my ways
I could change my name and change my number / Change my frame of mind from slumber / I’ve got to change my ways
I’ve got to change my ways / I want to change the world / I can’t even change this girl / I want to change the world / But I can’t even change myself / I’ve got to change my ways
I’ve got to change my attitude / I’ve got to change my diet / I’ve got to change my quiet moods / I’ve got to change that hi hat / I’ve got to change that ringtone on my phone / I’ve got to change my habits / I’ve got to go to Rome in the fall / Before I’ve had it

CIGARETTE BURNS
One day you’re gonna ride ahead of yours / That day you’re gonna rise above of the occasion / Hurt / You know it comes like this / It goes like this / Hurt / You know it goes like this it comes like this / I guess the pills don’t work and the drinks don’t work / In the morning it hurts like cigarette burns / The summer’s daft and winter’s long
One day you’re gonna find a way too / That day you’re gonna ride ahead of your vocation / Hurt / You know it comes like this / It goes like this / Hurt / You know it goes like this it comes like this / I guess the pills don’t work and the drinks don’t work / In the morning it hurts like cigarette burns / The summers daft and winter’s long

COMMON SENSE
Today I lost my common sense / It slipped away on the corner of Pike and 10th / I guess it happened on purpose / Because lately it’s been getting quite intense
You blow my mind and I’ll blow yours / I’ve seen the force of your pretty smile / Baby, do it one more time
Today I lost my sense of pride / Hiding out somewhere it wasn’t supposed to hide / It might be gone for a while / Like music that suddenly just goes out of style
Today I lost my sense of time / It disappeared like anything you just can’t find / I guess I dont really care / I’ve been running behind now year after year

‘DIET OF WATER AND LOVE’ BY THE VALIUM POETS
When you are here with me / With valium poets all ears / Floating on clouds / We wait for whatever comes around
It’s so perfectly quiet and I’m gonna stay / On a diet of water and love / While life goes on

DOWN
I’ve been running / I’ve been having fun / But I don’t know what it means / I’ve been trying / I’ve been dying to / But I don’t know what it means
I’ve been down down down down down / But i don’t know what it means
I rest my case / But i don’t wanna run the race / I’ve been loosing you the way I’m loving you / But I don’t know what it means / I’ve been trying so hard to come to peace / But I don’t know what it means / My shelter is a shield / But I don’t know what it means
I’ve been trying so hard to be myself that I’ve turned into somebody else / I’m in denial or so it seems / But i don’t know what it means

EVERYTHING IS ENDING HERE
Everything is ending here / After all I have no more to say / Everything is ending here / After all I have no more to say
I am sick and tired of words / I’ve been using them for all these years / Every word I try to say / Seem to end in tears
Everything is ending here / After all I have no more to say / Everything is ending here / After all I have no more to say
Everything is ending here / After all I have no more to say / Everything is ending here / After all I have no more to say / To you

HALDI
If our love is all that we have / Caught up the sleeve / And if I choose / If I choose the love that we share / Would it be here / Keep coming to me / Keep coming to me / I’ll set you free / And if our love is to keep / If our love is the key / It’s caught up my sleeve
All the love / All is love / So wipe out my heart if you want to see / And if I call / If I call, would you be the one / The one that I seek
Keep coming to me / Keep coming to me / I’ll set you free / And if our love is to keep / If our love is the key / It’s caught up my sleeve
Or so it’s said / That the world of ours all lies in dreams / You got to keep them out of reach for some / I wouldn’t like to be the one / The one that you have hurt / So all appear to be as you see here / One too many / Too many choices I have here / You’ve got to choose from the top of your head / I have one too many / Too many reasons to be here / And that’s what keeps me / So let it be / There are so many people and so much fuzz around us / They keep crashing into a situation / And so they say / That the world of ours all lies in dreams / We got to keep them real

HEAVENLY
Lately you haven’t been around much / And lately you seem to slip away from my touch / Lately I’ve been shy and not too eager / Lately I’ve been tired of eating alone
I’m gonna write you a magic letter / I’m gonna send you all a dream / I’m gonna write you a magic letter / I’m gonna send you all a dream / I’m gonna write you a magic letter / I’m gonna send you all a dream / I’m gonna write you a magic letter / I’m gonna send you all a dream
Lately I’ve been kind of shy and not too eager / And lately I’ve slipped away from your touch / Sometimes, Sometimes it seems so easy / Cause someday, I’ll lose it all, for some more
I’m gonna write you a magic letter…
All that lot of water / All that lies between / All that heavenly water / All is like a dream

HONEY’S IN LOVE
You dont understand what you do to me / In love / My soothing lullaby / You dont understand what you do to me / In Love / You’re outside my window, I see you / In Love / My soothing lullaby / You dont understand what you do to me

IF WE KISS
If we kiss the last hour / Will you stay if we kiss? / I sit on a corner watching people passing by / I walk in a crowd / Looking for one

I’VE BEEN WAITING ALL MY LIFE TO LEAVE YOU
When I see you / I’ve been wasting all my life to tell you / When I meet you / I’ve been waiting all my life to leave you
But when I’m down again and all alone / When my head spins round and I’m feeling small / Would you believe me / If I told you that I tried all I could / Would you deceive me / If I choose to leave it all up to you / But when I’m down again and all alone / When my head spins round and I’m feeling small
When I see you / Would I dare to leave it all behind / It could be heavens hold, if you’d see / It could be all I need / If you’d be here

KEEP ON
Come on and make a wish / I don’t want to know / I want to see this love / You might as well let go / I want to feel like this / There’s something in your eyes / Might be my twisted mind / I think it’s paradise / Come on and make a wish / Before the sun goes up / I want to see this love / We might as well let go
You said my life would leave my heart in a deadly spin / So why don’t you come on, baby?
Come on and catch my kiss / It’s flying low / I want to see this love / We might as well let go

KEMIKAL GIRL
Losing, choosing / Finding my way through the rain / Losing, choosing / All of my thoughts go insane / I can’t go, where I want to / I can’t go, where I want to
Losing, choosing / Finding my way through the rain / Losing, choosing / All of my thoughts go insane
Finding my way through this lonely place / It’s just a rainy daze / Finding my way through this lonely days / It’s such a rainy place
But I can’t go, where I want to / I can’t go, where I want to
Who would dare to bring me love?

LOST CAUSES
We went down with November / Lights out, late December / We missed Santa Claus, and all lost causes / Burned out and exhausted
Now rewind to September / So sweet and tender / Air is gentle, nights still warm / Shelter before the storm
June is almost lost on me / When promises come easy / With nothing to lose, but all lost causes / Summer nights never exhaust us
We went down with November / Lights out, ’til late December / I be shelter for the coming storm / But I won’t be the one to take you home

LOVE AND HALOGEN
This goes on for days on end / Let’s spend darkness innocent / Let’s just kiss and make amends / Spend it on love and halogen
Charlie’s playing the mandolin / While other people count their sins / When darkness comes to swallow them / Go spend it on love and halogen
This will last for days on end / Past forever and back again / Charlie says he’s lost his friends / He’s back on love and halogen
Charlie’s up to something good / Setting fire to the neighbourhood / Let the darkness burn, and then / Spend it on love and halogen
Emotional conspiracy / Erase it all from memory / So when we start all over again / We’ll spend it on love and halogen

LOVE HEARTS
Heaven called / Alone for a while and I wouldn’t say / Wouldn’t say / Wouldn’t stay / All the way you set it higher / You set it too high / You said it’s ‘your love’ / You said it’s too late / You can choose your love heart / Embrace it hard / Sleeping on your own / You keep coming back for more / For keeps
Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby / You can only keep it to heart / Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby / Can only keep it too high / Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby / You can only keep it to heart / Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby / Can only keep it to high

MAGIC POTION
One drop in the ocean could be that magic potion / One love, two hearts / You’ve got to tear your doubt apart / I just couldn’t fake an emotion / Faking is poison, my love / The is the one shot / The magic potion

MISS WORLD
This time I know it’s gonna be for real / This time I know it’s gonna be for real / I miss the chemistry of your kiss / Full stand still / Alone – and it’s for real…
I feel so totally happy, and it’s all so real / I could surf the earth on a banana peel / I’m so totally into this / The chemistry of your kiss / The way you lose yourself at night / The way you look in the morning light / You’re so pretty / Makes me wanna burn this city down / I walk the streets with a frown the size of a playground merry-go-round / This time I know it’s gonna be for real
You are Miss World / I miss the chemistry of your kiss
Full stand still / Alone – and it’s for real

MORNING STAR
You are my morning star / You are my morning star
You’re my morning Star / It’s just the way you are / When the orange sky kiss the night goodbye / You are my morning star
It’s not the way you move / It’s not the way you walk / It’s just the way you are
You are my morning star / It’s just the way you are / You are my morning star / It’s just the way you are / My morning star

ON MY BALCONY
Here comes summer / Beaming in through my bedroom window / There’s a song on the radio / You used to hum back then
Here comes summer / Still feels fresh as morning air / Today I’ll just stay here / And do, well, whatever
I’ll do whatever / Please, make summer last forever
All I want to do is sit here on my balcony / And think about you and me / And how happy we could be
Here comes summer / Picking flowers in the early hours / Without a care in the world / Except perhaps for bees and birds
Here comes summer / I guess I’ll stick to my master plan / Stay away from sea and sand / And do, well, whatever
I’ll do whatever / Please, make summer last forever
All I want to do is sit here on my balcony / And think about you and me / And how happy we could be

PERSONAL STEREO
This one goes out to the one I love / This one goes out to the one I love / This one goes out to the one I love / Coming to you, on your personal stereo
I’m coming back to play / But I don’t know the rules / And I’m nobody’s fool but myself / So if you want it any other way – it’s OK
I’m coming back to play / But I don’t know the rules / And I don’t know the name of this game / So should I stay, or should I walk away?
This one goes out to the one I love / This one goes out to the one I love / This one goes out to the one I love / Coming to you, on your personal stereo
I coming back to play / But there are still things to learn / About religion and science and love / I know, cause I’m an amateur and you’re a pro

PLAY
Everyone / Every singer and every song / Everyone of us / Every lover who’s love has gone
It’s a soothing delight / And it’s moving my life
Everyone / Every singer and every song / Everyone / Ever beggar and every bum / Everyone / Every lover who’s lover’s gone
So cold, cold, yet beautiful / Everybody knows that life can be wonderful
It’s a soothing delight / And it’s moving my life
Everyone / Every sinner and every saint / Everything / Every picture and lick of paint / Everything / Every sunrise and starry night
So cold, cold, yet beautiful / Everybody knows that life can be wonderful
It’s a soothing delight / And it’s moving my life

PRIMER
Come as you are / Come if you like / Please step inside / But come as you are
Entourage / Escaped in my dreams / Borderland / Helter skelter dreams
Walk through the yard / Skating in my dreams / So, we are / Sheltered in my dreams
Still on my own / Still I’m afraid
No one has seen / But I’ve seen my head / Ice in my dreams / Ice in my blood
Borderland / Iron cast

PROBABLY
Send me, send me, send me / Send me a mortar / I’ll torture you / Because I’ve got no more / It’s not a word you like to hear / It’s just to see how much I care / After all I hate you / Probably
It’s not a word you like to hear / It’s just to see how much I care / After all I hate you / Probably
I’ll torture you / Because I’ve got no more / It’s not a word you like to hear / It’s just to see how much I care / After all I hate you / Probably
It’s not a word you like to hear / It’s just to see how much I care / After all I hate you / Or probably / Should

QUEEN OF THE UNDERGROUND
Queen of the underground, where you bound? / What’s the soundbite like? / Queen of the underground, where have you been? / I didn’t get under your skin
King of the alternative scene, you fall in? / Did your heyday ricochet / Princess heir of the indie sphere, do you still care? / I didn’t get under your skin
Queen of the underground, where you bound? / What’s the soundbite like / Queen of the underground, Miss Babylon, Amazon, take me in / I didn’t get under your skin
Girl of the underworld, where did you go? / I heard you went with the undertow / Didn’t get under your skin…

RIDE
I went to a lonely bar and the word was out / So you could steal my love / I guess I wouldn’t mind at all / Looking at the cars and looking at the shadows fall / I would let it be / I guess I wouldn’t mind at all
I went into the car heading for a place I know, to stay / You could steal my love / I guess I wouldn’t mind at all / Driving through the night / Driving to the place I love / I could let it be / I could let it all go
Oh, oh, Wanna ride with me
Oh, oh, Wanna ride with / Wanna ride with me

SANCTUARY
Snow is falling quietly / Careless of it’s destiny / Emptyness will kill me soon / Tonight they’ll dance outside my bedroom
Someone’s walking happily / Carry all their mystery / Isolation’s killing me / Tonight they’ll dance for me
Wind is whistling down the street / Drowning sounds of happy feet / Temptation’s killing me / Tonight the wind will sing for me
Colors fade into the night / They’re refugees in neon lights / Darkness is killing me / Later light will shine on me
You’ll be standing next to me / Soon you will be kissing me / Happiness is killing me / Tonight you will be dancing for me

SIT DOWN
I’m still at the front / But I don’t, I don’t fight / I’m gonna sit down tonight
I’m not buying in / But I can’t pull out / I’m just gonna sit down tonight
Listen to the silence in between / It’s louder than the bombs that come screaming in / Listen to the silence in between / It’s louder than the bombs that come screaming in / I’m gonna sit down tonight
I’m still in my trench / Cause I keep, the defence / I’m gonna sit down tonight / I’m not buying in / But I can’t pull out / I’m just gonna sit down tonight
Listen to the silence in between / It’s louder than the bombs that come screaming in / Listen to the silence in between / It’s louder than the bombs that come screaming in / Listen to the silence / I’m gonna sit down tonight
We’re still at the front / But we don’t, we don’t fight / We’re gonna sit down tonight / We’re not buying in / But we can’t pull out / We’re just gonna sit down tonight

SIX SEVEN TIMES
You’ve got it all six seven times / You’ve got it all / Makes me feel so fine
It’s typical of you / Standing out in the pouring rain / It’s typical of you / Looking like you do / And the day I’ll catch your eye / Could another chance come by / I should really know by now / Would I ask you anyhow
It’s typical of you / Looking like you do / It’s so typical of you / Love me like you do
You’ve got it all six seven times / You’ve got it all / Makes me feel so fine / You’ve got it all six seven times / You’ve got it all / Makes me feel so fine
It’s typical of you / Standing out in the pouring rain / It’s typical of you / Looking so good / There’s moonlight and it’s warm outside / Just a little breeze come by / I’m afraid to trip and fall / Do you really excist at all?
It’s typical of you / Looking like you do / It’s so typical of you / Love me like you do
You’ve got it all six seven times / You’ve got it all / Makes me feel so fine

SKYSONG
You know that our love affair is a bit like the rainbow / Unpredictable / Still it’s one of nature’s greatest shows / Soon come fall / It’s the best excuse for doing nothing at all / There’s people and there’s sunshine / It’s a perfect day for wasting time
Looking at the sky / Watch another day go by / I’m looking at the sky / Waving another cloud goodbye
You should know the beauty of life is the beauty of falling I love / Still sometimes / The future seems too hard to swallow / You know there’s an ocean of time / Starting tomorrow / Being with you is like sleeping in cotton wool
Looking at the sky / Watch another day go by / I’m looking at the sky / Waving another cloud goodbye

SPEEDSKATING
Is this the spirit of heart / To let me be skating here / Into my death / Is this the doom of my heart / To let me fall down / Here under the ice / Is this worth fighting for
I like to be about it / This is treacherous ice / Not to be skating on / Not to be playing with / One two three four, one two three / I fall through the ice / Is this worth fighting for
My subconcious is an under achiever / My faith is of a disbeliever / To myself I’m a deceiver / I’m even a weary dreamer / Still it’s beautiful and adoring / The midsummer night’s gently yawning / When we kiss we kiss like we’re dying / It’s nice, i insist we die trying

SPRING TO KINGDOM COME
Sleeping beauty, where have you been / You should know, I’m counting on you here
Feels like clouds beneath your wings / It is night, you see it as it is / It is dark, have mercy on us all / You should know, I’m counting on you here / His kiss, his kiss, his kiss… of spring
Let’s talk about the weather / And the snow / Falling from the heavens like crystal feather / The power of the powder / The silence screams louder / I feel cold / This is a nation on hold
It’s the chill without the thrill / I’m waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
I manage to get down to the coffee shop / It’s the big freeze, I feel like a pork chop / Jesus it’s cold, must be a million below / Nowhere to go, and the snow still falling / Everything’s gone white / Still nothing looks bright / There’s no signs of daylight / Every day is like eternal night / I’m out of here soon / I might be back in June
It’s the chill without the thrill / I’m waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
God working on his kiss of life / God have mercy with us all / Working on the mercy of his kiss / You should know, we’re counting on you here / God working on his kiss / God working on his kiss of spring

STAIN
Nothing to dismay / It’s sweet stain / Summers roll by / Summers without shoes on / Lovers in a park / It’s sweet stain / Lovers in the lane of love / Running back to back

SUBWAY (J’AIME LA PLUIE D’ÉTÉ)
I love summer rain / I like to leave on the evening train / I love spring / Makes me fall in love with you again
I like the sound of the sea / When it’s only the ocean and me / I love the city when it’s half empty / And I love you when your with me
I love the colors of july / I like October, when it’s dry / I love your kisses when I leave / You close your eyes like you don’t wanna see
I love the European sun / I like the Sex Pistols cause they’re fun / I love to dance when I’m drunk – sometimes / I like to dance when I’m drunk

TWO ICICLES
I’m a weirdo that’s why I secretly comes by / Now two icicles appear / About to love
We’re two icicles on a spree / And icicles they are free / And you belong to me / Like icicles belong to the sea
I’m so happy when it rains / We remain / Still everything will change / I’m so happy when it rains / We’re the same / Still everything will change
You could call this love / If you make me feel wanted / Let’s call this love / You can write our names on the tree that you have chosen / You ought to know

YOUR KOOLEST SMILE
Your koolest smile brings me into koolest moods / I don’t know what to say / You’re tricking me into something crazy, I can see / Your koolest smile brings me into koolest moods / I don’t want your sympathy or your games / Makes me feel so insane
