1967

be still my dear, be still
this love will only grow
beat silently, my heart
he knows he knows he knows

it's the way you sing, you pretty thing
you've trapped me in your glow
it's the way you scream, my vintage queen
it's the way you steal the show

be still my dear, be still
it's time i let you know
if you're not the one for me, my love
then i'm better off alone

waking life

it's been days that i've been watching
a surreal life unfold
moving pictures on eyelids
my eyes when they are closed

though temperatures are falling
and wind is getting cold
i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home

it's been weeks that i've been dreaming
of prophecies untold
prophecies of another world
a world still unknown

though temperatures are falling
and wind is getting cold
i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home

it's been months that i've been knocking
on walls made out of stone
and years that i've been feeling
the beat of my heart alone

but now i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home

i feel my blood is warming
'cause you are coming home.

headlights

it's a fucked up reality that i find myself living in
every step is a life or death decision
headlights moving forward, towards me
bracing for a head-on collision

there's something i want to say
that i can't put my finger on
but right now i can't think of a thing
'cause nothing's ever the same here when you're gone

point-blank range

i wanna listen to your heart beat at point-blank range
pounding with the melody of the pouring Texas rain
i'll be singing you a sweet song while you're lying there asleep
a lullaby to the rhythm of your heart's unwavering beat

i'm thinking i'm wanting to be in your arms
for you to be holding me tight
but you and i know that the timing's all wrong
tonight just isn't our night

all my pieces

i'm alone in crowded corridors
making space for time
i'm hearing a loud persistent voice
a voice that sounds like mine

and it just keeps repeating
it just keeps repeating
everyone has got to go mad
everyone has got to go mad
go mad as soon as possible

it doesn't make any difference
where you are or what you do
or how many times i fall to pieces
because all my pieces are a part of you
all my pieces are a part of you
and you
are a part of me too

and it just keeps repeating
and i just keep breathing
everyone has got to go mad
everyone has got to go mad
go mad as soon as possible

side by side

i had a dream we were flying
side by side
our wings were made of the ashes
of a thousand lonesome nights
i had a dream we were flying
side by side

i have a hundred reasons to run away
all i need is one
but this time i don't wanna run
this time i don't wanna run

i had a dream we were dancing
side by side
dressed in red, we were losing our heads
we were feeling so alive
i had a dream we were dancing
side by side

i had a dream we were dreaming
and the dream became our life..

all the while

he's out looking for something he'll never find
those city streets are calling him
every single night
all the pretty girls, they fall for him
every single night
but they're wanting something they will never find

and all the while
all the while
she's in the background thinking
you can have it all
you can have it all

she's looking in the mirror for something she'll never find
i'm staring but i never see me
she sees an illusion, a physical prison
but her soul
her soul feels pretty and free

and all the while
all the while
he's in the background singing
you can have it all
you can have it all

open your heart
you can have it all

arms of a lion

i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
under the open Texas sky
i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
on ten thousand moonlit nights

i don't know if my words will reach you
or if your heart is open to care
or if your arms are ever reaching
and hoping to find me there

but there's a lover inside me loving
every inch that i've seen of you
every beat of your heart, every well-spoken thought
every note that reminds me of you

i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
under the open Texas sky
i wanna sleep in the arms of a lion
on ten thousand moonlit nights

back and forth

in the echoes in my mind
i hear everything you didn't say
every move you made in the dead of night
i wouldn't want it any other way

when the mess you've made is too much to bear
i'll take you far away from that place
when the nightmares are over and the new day waits
i'll take you far away from that place

in the echoes in my mind
i hear everything you didn't say
every move you made in the dead of night
i wouldn't want it any other way

run

it's been raining for days
the sun has gone away
when i close my eyes
i only see your face
but i don't know
i don't know what to say

and it's been raining
for days
it's been raining
for days

those tracks go on as far as i can see
but you're just standing there
looking right at me
i see the moon in your eyes
i can barely breathe
and you're just standing there
looking right at me

we should walk the other way
we should run
we should do all the things
we never should have done

we should do all the things
we never should have..

it's been raining for days
it's been too long since i 've seen your face

drive

i don't care what the consequences are
i'm taking the brakes out of my car

it's been awhile but i still know how to drive
i'll do what i want 'cause it's my fuckin life

26 April 2009

want

what do you want from me
chaos is all i can see
what do you want from me
chaos is all i believe

i tried to do it all your way
but now i want to throw it all away
i tried to live my life your way
but now i want to throw it all away

what do you want from me
chaos is all i believe

what do you want from me
i wanna burn all these bridges to the ground
what do you want from me
chaos is all i believe

16 March 2009

one of these days

one of these days i'll whisper secrets
into the madness of your unmade bed
one of these days your restless heart
will refuse to surrender to the chaos in your head

one of these days

i have so many things i have to tell you
so many things that don't need to be said
if you would only stop and listen
to the battle your heart is waging with your head

one of these days
