4:35 AM

Driving so slow
Streets are empty as we go
Back over the canal
We've all had a long day and we're going home

We all got big tears in our sides
And the city salt doesn't help
But it sure cleans them out

In little coffee shops
And litter sidewalk cops
We're the only ones awake
We're the only ones that can't stop

Driving, so slow
Streets are empty as we go

 

Can't Find Love

I can't find love
And there you go, you go

I can't find love
And there you go, you go

Can't find love

I can't find love, love, oh no
I can't find, find love, find love
Oh no no

 

Evening Sun

Evening Sun
Why don't you stay
Just a little longer, please

My friends and I
Well, our party's almost over
Why don't you stay
Just a little longer please

'Cause I need you bad
I need you better
I need you bad
That I could kill
I need you bad
I need you better
Come on

Evening Sun
Why don't you stay
Just a little longer, please

My friends and I
Well, our party's almost over
Why don't you stay
Just a little longer please

'Cause I need you bad
I need you better
I need you bad
That I could kill
I need you bad
I need you better
Come on, now

 

Gotta Low

Low, gotta low, gotta low feeling
Bring it on a slow,
bring it on a slow burning

Your love is so hard to please
Your love is so hard to leave

This is so hard to do
Everybody wants to take a look at you, my baby
This is so hard to do
Everybody wants to take a look at you, my baby
You're my baby

Low, gotta low, gotta low feeling
Bring it on a slow, bringin' on a slow burning

Your love is so hard to please
Your love is so hard to leave

This is so hard to do
Everybody wants to take a look at you, my baby
This is so hard to do
Everybody wants to take a look at you, my baby
My baby

Low, gotta low, gotta low feeling
Low, gotta low, gotta low feeling

 

I Worked Myself Into A Calm

A slow walk
Will do you good
Try and take it all in

You said
You'll hold me down
Show me how to turn this mess around

You can cry
No one is looking at you
You can cry, cry

Can't stay
Out of luck
Have trouble trying to wake myself

That's alright
I caught myself
Dragged me up to better health

You can cry
No-one is looking at you
You can cry, cry

You can cry
No one is looking at you
You can cry, cry

All good things must change
And I'd fight it
If I could
All good things must change

I worked myself into a calm
I worked myself

You can cry
No-one is looking at you
You can cry, cry

You can cry
No one is looking at you
You can cry, cry

All good things must change
And I'd fight it, if I could

All good things must change

 

Making Waves

Lay me down in the daylight moments
Follow you around to your place
And I'll just sit here and watch you

Making waves, making waves

And there is no sea at all

I don't know how you do it
So full to your belly with sand
I could just sit here forever and watch you

Making waves, oh you're making waves
I watch you making waves

Where there's no sea at all

Making waves
Oh you're making waves
I watch you making waves
Oh you're making waves

 

Stop The Wheel

He's getting married on the Wednesday
But h was buried on the Monday
And his girlfriend is due in three weeks
And she's my cousin

Her mother went off the rails
And started praying that this child
Would have straight teeth

My car got broken into
Don't seem to dream like I used to
And the wind was crazy in a wild place last night

I couldn't sleep
So I stayed up worrying
And I prayed everyone I loved was alright

We cannot stop the wheel
We cannot stop the wheel
From turning

We cannot stop the wheel
We cannot stop the wheel
So let's just enjoy the ride

Well I admit
Some people make me nervous
The one's who've stopped scaring the hell out of themselves
And you see them claiming to be wild and free
Holding their young grey hearts in their hands

Sweet boy press your hand against my lips
You got to stop me trying to make sense of it all
And whisper
I'll race you to the edge
And we'll open up our arms and just fall

We cannot stop the wheel
Cannot stop the wheel
From turning

We cannot stop the wheel
Cannot stop the wheel
So let's just enjoy the ride

Cannot stop the wheel

Embrace the down side
Follow the landslide

Embrace the down side
Follow the landslide

Embrace the down side
Follow your landslide

And just enjoy the ride

Cannot stop the wheel
Cannot stop the wheel
Cannot stop the wheel
Cannot stop the wheel

 

Brightness

There's a place inside my heart
Got me living straight

Found a place that I can fight for
Got me living straight

You were the only one that could calm me down
Come on over and calm me down

You're bright
So bright it cuts right though
You're brightness
So bright it cuts right though the menace

You take the blackness away
So the bad old feelings no longer stay
Your face
Got me living straight

You were the only one that can calm me down
So come on over and calm me down

You're brightness
So bright it cuts right through
You're brightness
So bright, so bright, so bright
So bright it cuts right through
You're brightness
So bright it cuts right through, cuts right through

 

Summers In Doubt

Summers in doubt, that's where we are
So I go to your house, that's where I feel strong

We're gonna make it anyway, it's just a given

And while from the daylight, that's where we are
We've given up on the quiet fight, so scared this noise is shaping us

Gonna make it anyway, it's just a given

Just fade out, of the way
Watch you fade out, of the way

Summer's in doubt, that's where we are
So I go to your house, that's where I feel strong

Gonna make it anyway, it's just a given
Gonna make it anyway, it's just a given
Gonna make it anyway, it's just a given

The light, follows you forever
The light, follows you forever (and I worked myself into a calm)
The light, follows you forever (and I worked myself into a calm)

 

A New Day (Version 1)

Well I got myself a new day
And I got myself a second chance
So I headed to the bus stop
And the sun, the sun was warm on my back

I got myself a second chance
I got myself a second chance

Well I got myself a new day
And I got myself a second chance
So I headed to the bus stop
And the sun, the sun was warm on my back

I got myself a second chance
I got myself a second chance

Well I got myself a second chance
Well I got myself a second chance

Well I got myself a second chance
Well I got myself a second chance
Got myself a...

 

Ae Fond Kiss (Traditional)

(Traditional by Robert Burns)

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;
Ae fareweel, and then for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy;
for no-one could resist my Nancy;
for see her was to love her,
Love but her, and love for ever.

Had we never loved sae kindly,
Had we never loved sae blindly,
Never met—or never parted,
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare thee weel my first and fairest!
Fare thee weel, my best and dearest!
Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
Peace, enjoyment, love, and pleasure!

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever!
Ae fareweel, alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee!

 

The Walk Away

[Lyrics]

 

November

November...
Has taken its toll
And if I know better
There's more to come

And the ocean is waitin' at our backdoor
You know we could leave
But we know in our hearts
There's so much more

We will find a way
To make it through these days
And we will find a way
To make it through these days

And I've fallen face down in the sand
Yeah, I take my chance playin'
Life's little dance and I still don't understand

And people are talkin' at me
Yeah, they make no sense
Wish I could pay my expenses
And get on the next train outta here

We will find a way
To make it through these days
We will find a way
To make it through
With sweet love and prayer

And who's the fairest of us all
And who will fight for you and I
Who's the bravest of us all
And who will hold us when we cry
When we cry

And we will find a way
To make it through these days
We will find a way
To make it through (x5)

 

Colours

So many crooked paths in my way
Its always the purest of hearts that get less straight
I’m gonna find a way to catch that burning sun
Then I'll leave you behind, my beautiful one

And all my colours are changing
And all my old colours have gone

In the middle of my heart lies an ocean
And at the bottom of this blue lies a truth
Is there someone somewhere? is there someone who cares?
Is there somebody up there?
I promise to myself to find the right question

And all my colours are changing
And all my old colours have gone
And all my colours are changing

 

Holy Places

This stupid mess brings out your eyes
And all those beautiful cities inside
I’ve never seen a firefly but I picture it in my mind
Distant and uneasy, will return to me eventually

Holy Places, for you and I
We need the Holy Place, where there’s fireflies

Sometimes the sun is too bright
And the world kicks me on the inside
These bones whistle endlessly
For the lonely and the crazy
My world subsides

Holy Places, for you and I
We need the Holy Places, where there’s fireflies

This stupid mess, it brings out your eyes
And all those beautiful cities inside

 

Bad Day

The clock keeps on going, the motorway is jammed
And all that is golden is running paled through my hands
It's a long way ‘til summer so you better wrap up well
Jimmy come over, my head is a mess
You give me a reason to put on a pretty dress
We'll dance to remember and we'll drink to forget

It's a bad day
Won't you stay with me
It's a bad day
Won't you make me go wild inside for a little while

Well the smart ones knew better, they got out of this town
See, just like an anchor, it keeps you safe while holding you down, down..
I'm restless, I'm restless, it cuts to the core
You and I know it's more than just being bored

It's a bad day
Wont you stay with me tonight
It's a bad day
Won't you make me go wild inside for a little while, a little while

Jimmy come over, my head is a mess
You give me a reason to put on the dress
We'll dance to remember and we'll drink to forget, forget

It's a bad day
Wont you stay with me tonight
It's a bad day
Wont you make me go wild inside for a little while

A wild time…for a little while…little while…

 

Perfect Day

Late at night the air is beaten black
I’m lying with your head on my stomach
This is my favourite time
This is my favourite time

I watch you sleep so quiet and so deep
Our legs are knotted and wrapped around the sheets
You sleep on your left side
Always stay by my side

It’s such a perfect way
To end a hurtful day
In the arms of you
The arms of you

We sit around all day and watch TV
We play our favourite records and let the night fall down
You love the same things I do
And I’m at ease around you

It’s such a perfect way
To end a hurtful day
In the arms of you
The arms of you

It’s such a perfect way
To end a hurtful day
In the arms of you
The arms of you

It’s such a perfect way
To end a hurtful day
In the arms of you
The arms of you

 

Bless The Boy

God bless the boy with August in his eyes
Pure as a gypsy is wild
Sorrow he knows nothing of
No slight of hand or a devil's heart
Child of the half lie,
Won't you stay by my side?

You're just a beautiful…
You're just a beautiful…
You're just a beautiful…
You're just a beautiful…

Nothing ever gets you down,
Soaked in golden memories
Brighten up my blackened heart,
No change is good change when you're around

Warm is the night,
Won't you lay by my side?

You're just a beautiful…
You're just a beautiful…
You're just a beautiful…
You're just a beautiful…

Don't you know, you could be the death of me,
Pretty as you are
Don't you know, you could be the death of me,
Pretty as you are

 

Rith Mé Go Crích

('Ran For Miles' as Gaeilge)

Bhuel fuair me la nua dom fhein
Is fuair me dom an dara seans sin
Is lean me liom go staf an bhus
Bhi an ghrian, bhi an ghrian te ar mo dhroim

Inniu rith me go crich, go chfeicfinn go fior
ce me fhein
Inniu rith me do gash i mo chroi

Bhuel ta an t-amhran seo faighte 'am
Agus fair me dom fhein geall mho...r an lae
Ag iarraidh a ra an troid a bhi ann
Ag iarraidh stop a chur ie mo chuid leimni

Inniu rith me go crich, go bhfeicfinn go fior ce me fhein
Inniu rith me do gach i mo chroi

Inniu rith me go crich, go bhfeicfinn go fior ce me fhein
Inniu rith me do gach i mo chroi, go bhfeicfinn go fior ce me fhein
Inniu rith me do gach i mo chroi

 

It's A Shame

These tired eyes are lonely stars
Trying to find some order in the chaos
This is what you doin' to me
In every word, you ever said
You cut right through
Through my chest
I guess you never really left
I guess you never really left

And it's a shame
We ended what could've been golden
I just thought you should know
And everything
That I ever been
You're looking back at me
I guess you never really left
I guess you never really left me

Drag myself onto the floor
Trying to find some chaos in the order
This is what you doin' to me
Simple truth is just denied
You're all I have
I lost the fight
This is what you doin' to me

And it's a shame
We ended what could've been golden
I just thought you should know
And everything
That I ever been
You're looking back at me
I guess you never really left
I guess you never really left me

It's a shame
We ended what could've been golden
Just thought you should know
And everything
That I ever been
You're looking back at me
I guess you never really left
I guess you never really left me

It's a shame
That we ended up what could've been golden
It's a shame
You already left
It's a shame
You already left me

 

Waiting For You
