Polichinelle

I said the first thing that came into my head
I said you have a friend in me who knows
That running's not the same for everyone
'Cause if you stay there has to be someone to hold you
Every day, someone to need you
To make a fire out of the grey confusion

There's nothing on the radio
You've gone as far as you can go
Everywhere is emptiness
And everyone is loneliness
But I'll help you if you want me to
I'll help you if you let me through
I'll be the one you tell
Let it go Polichinelle

Where's my funny girl?
Are you ready to believe it's true
That everything we love we lose?
Only in your mind can you choose
Not to live again
And you could find your smile tomorrow
Remember what was beautiful
Not the dark inventions of your burning sorrow

There's nothing on the radio
You've gone as far as you can go
Everywhere is emptiness
And everyone is loneliness
But I'll help you if you want me to
I'll help you if you let me through
I'll be the one you tell
Let it go Polichinelle

Run, abandon your name
The lies, the hurt and the blame
Tonight you're standing on the edge
In hopeless tears that only I can hear
The telephone can't bring you here

 

Slow Down

Just hold on slow down, you'll find me
Just hold on slow down, you'll see me

Like I see you wherever I turn
I don't know what I'm doing this for
I'm alone but the light still fools me
I don't know that it's over now
When I kissed you that one last time
It was all that I had from your heart
So I took it and I kept it here
It's how I found you, you said

What is sad what is fair, what is good
Everyone who can feel it knows
Looking through all the words you sent me
I'm the one to bring you home

Just hold on slow down, you'll find me
Just hold on slow down, you'll see me
On the corner of a quiet street
In the headlights on a mad night

Didn't know how I'd miss that song
In a song that I'd feel your skin
I'll get high and alive on life
But I know that I love you so

In the daylight in the twilight
In the headlights, in your sad eyes

 

Saved

Baby we're already saved
We can never be apart
Baby we're already saved
We can never be apart

There's no sadder song than this one
You wake up alone in my arms
All we want to do is breathe easily
Wild eyes were all our charms

Baby we're already saved
We can never be apart
Baby we're already saved
We can never be apart

Do I turn around and now like a child
Go looking for another lesson to be learned
How can I believe in love without a love?
It's hard to learn this way, I’d rather play God

Baby we're already saved
We can never be apart

So here’s my story, everything is for you
Here’s my pain
There's no glory in winning
Here’s my new beginning..............la la la

We lie as lovers on a bed of lies
It's the weight of my life to be here with you now
But I never left before
For now we have to breathe to bring this love alive
We'll let each other go, let it go..........let it go

Baby we're already saved
We can never be apart
Baby we're already saved
We can never be apart
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh...

 

It Hurts To Lose You

January was blinding
As we climbed from the basement
Said goodbye for the last time
In a bar by the Grand Canal
Thanks for confiding
The pain you were hiding
But don't let the silence
Come back to your eyes
‘Cause I heard the music
Your soul was making
It hurts to lose you
Just before we made it

You took my hat with a sad smile
And paid me back with your photograph
Though I needed to know why
I tried only to make you laugh
After you left the sky
Rained for the first time
And I went to see what I
Could find to blow my mind
And I heard the music
Your soul was making
It hurts to lose you
Just before we made it

Now you write mad poetry
In your room with dead roses
Just one more life story
That cries from the ocean
And wait for the dark tide
That comes to you day and night
Is it too late to take your side
Too late to win the fight?
‘Cause I heard the music
Your soul was making
It hurts to lose you
Just before we made it

 

Dead Flowers

I can't breathe or be still
Neither feel cold nor the thrill
While you close, one by one
All the doors with this silence
When you get this close to me
You take the words out of me
You give me poetry for my hunger
You give me pain to make me stronger

I don't feel so strong
I speak and it all goes wrong
I can't find your happy song

You're talking to yourself again
You're thinking about everything
It's all the same, the world you change
Stops when you fall asleep

I don't feel so strong
I speak and it all goes wrong
I can't find your happy song

The street's like a river baby
Everyone's got a sea to find
So you're lost, it's too fast for you
Let it go, it comes back for you
And ordinary life comes easy
Ordinary life comes easy

When you get this close to me
You take the words out of me
You give me poetry for my hunger
You give me pain to make me stronger

I don't feel so strong
I speak and it all goes wrong
I can't find your happy song

 

Balance

If you knew everything
That I try to say
When you wrap me 'round you
But I never stay
'Cause you've got the kiss
To steal what I lifted
Out of the hollow
Heart that I give

I'm balancing fear with you in my hands
I'm balancing joy with tears in my eyes
I'm balancing sorrow drinking for the laugh again
Waiting on the line for the sun to rise

Stumbling through the scene of the crime
Hiding the clues, wasting your time
'Cause I know it hurts
I know how it feels
To lose the balance and fall away from you

I'm balancing fear with you in my hands
I'm balancing joy with tears in my eyes
I'm balancing sorrow drinking for the laugh again
Waiting on the line for the sun to rise

If you knew everything
That I try to say
When you wrap me 'round you
But I never stay
'Cause You've got the kiss
To steal what I lifted
Out of the hollow
Heart that I give

 

Soon The Stars Will Steer Me

I do know you're near me
And soon the stars will steer me
Cause the night makes a sad song in the trees
And life is my mad eyes seeing me

The blue sun is burning cold
The bright light is failing
The signs seem to follow every road
And when I find where I’m standing I’m alone...always

I do know you're near me
And soon the stars will steer me
Stay with me always, high and low
Cause I want to know you when I go

 

Dark Green

Sunday morning, garden colours
Tripping over every moment
As they come fast like racing birds
Swirling for the gathering

Little children being golden
Hanging on to window dreaming
Don't tell them lies,
Don't deceive them
They rise now from the daisy fields

Let the colour river flow
Close your eyes, let it rise inside of you
Sit beside me now darling
Oh we're gonna see a change

Won't be long now before it turns
These heavy days of prophet tales
All shameless rhyme and remedy
We'll leave behind us when we sail

Let the colour river flow
Close your eyes, let it rise inside of you
Sit beside me now darling
Oh we're gonna see a change

You're inner mind,
There's more to feel
Out to the stars, There's more to feel
Don't let go of your lover’s hand
Everything may soon be over

Let the colour river flow
Close your eyes, let it rise inside of you
Sit beside me now darling
Oh we're gonna see a change

 

Paralysed

I wanted to write you a letter
Something that would betray me
And tell you I was older in my head
More scared than I said
Oh but I wait one more day
Hoping for the stalemate to end
Immobile and fading
We reach for anything

Paralysed
You were the motion and I
Was always the lone one
I need you now to decide

There's a difference here
Between the future and I
I Don't look for reasons to live
I never want to die

Paralysed
You were the motion and I
Was always the lone one
I need you now to decide

Ooh ooh
All that I had is trapped in the ruins of our life
How long before I lose the light
How long before I lose the light
How long before I lose the light
How long before I lose the light

I wanted to write you a letter
Something that would betray me
And tell you I was older in my head
More scared than I said

Paralysed
You were the motion and I
Was always the lone one
I need you now to decide

 

Was This Love

I waited for you to help me out of here
I'm weak but I'm still poised for a new beginning
You wanted my heart, my tears and honesty
Now you want me to bleed
You don't know your enemy
Close enough to see
And all the time your name
Was tripping from my tongue
Was this love for you
Holding to the lie for somewhere to belong
Love is not to win or to lose

You're waving your hand
You ride down the street from me
How bad did I feel
The morning you melted away
Like ice in my hands
Your tears flowing over me
I'm caught where I stand
I know where you want to be
I know who you want to be

Here I am crying out
Won't you stay, won't you stay
Won't you stay

 

In My Arms Again

When it gets too strong, and you know it will
And you feel inside like it's got to end
And all your tears have got you nowhere
Just put yourself in my arms again

Black and white is so easy to see
Even the blue sky's never certain
When your eyes won't open reach for me
And put yourself in my arms again

Can't be the one to give you vision
But you may wake up in the light
Sometimes it leaves you
You know and you never find out who you are
But you're in my arms again
There's nothing left in black and white

 

Come To Life

All I see, I see is one who knows no end
To the ways he's got to go
A tired traveller coming through the snow
Making for a light in the world

Come to life, be with me
We'll keep the sun over the sea
Come to life, be with me
When all we crave is still asleep

I'm going to find a place to wake up
I won't regret that I never understood
The failing kiss, the word you couldn't say
So I drink the last whiskey with the sun
