Waller St.

"This street is my world....
I don't pretend to go uptown and be anything fancy
I find more real in the world that I'm in
Than I do the tinsel world
And the real world is the one that I have to deal with everyday

Believe me if I started murdering people...
There would be none of you left."

Charles Manson

 

I Took Some Painkillers

Instrumental

 

Another Take

We both can't claim not to have noticed with all we've given I guess
that you've still shown us up.

Your words they mean less and less they've seen time swallow them all wrap them In a one track thought.

I wish that I could rest my head beside yours and there I'd dream of
sunny days and finding cures.

I loved today and everything surrounding we'll hang our heads until we kiss the ground and then..

 

Message Received

You've made yourself clear, message received.
You want me to go you want me to leave.

I guess that I've been a little naive,
Just a little too slow to believe.

You've made yourself clear, message received.
You want me to go you want me to leave, your beautiful mind.

 

Amsterdam

The sign above you is turning white,
The sign above you is always right.

Cos I can see things that I've never seen before,
I am incisive yet your eyes are still unsure.

Don't look around you there are no answers
In this place, fear surrounds you I can see it in your face.

Cos I can see things that I've never seen before,
I am incisive yet your eyes are still unsure.

You can't read me though you try,
Every word you speak is a lie.
In a world that's lost all sense of time.
All that matters is that your heart beats with mine.

 

Return My Rabbits

Have you had enough, have you had enough of this?
A laugh for every joke a smile for every kiss.

Does this not, does this not get you down?
You try your hardest to stand out
But you're just another face in the crowd.

You know I hate, I hate to see you look so sad,
No dance left in your eyes dwelling on everything you should have had.

Watch your shadow disappear with time, with every broken promise left behind, as all your stuttered words give into rhyme, so you can fall asleep with peace of mind.

Can you let it, can you let it crawl straight past? when you've given
everything you've got but you're still not equal to the task.

Does it hurt, does it hurt to see so much joy?
When everyone is moving on playing the world like it's their favourite toy.

You know I hate I hate to see you look so sad, no hope left in your
eyes, dwelling on everything you should have had.
Watch your shadow.....

 

Point Your Eyes Down

I'm not failing I'm ok,
I'm just searching for a way,
To get me out of this.

I sense your presence feel your breath,
I try in vain to lose forget,
This memory that stays so real.

I burn this bridge keep running for,
A sweeter taste of what's in store.
A symphony, a place for me.

Turn this light out, turn this light out, don't let it flicker.
Point your eyes down, point your eyes down, this doesn't feel right.

 

Angel

Excuse me, I did not mean to touch your hand.
It was a momentary forget of who I am.
You've made it see through.
I found my space now here I'll stand,
I'll never stray outside for fear I walk out of your life.

Take these words back, my head is not your boredom toy.
I've read this so many times, never bend my thoughts around.

I miss your smile, I miss your face, squinting eyes cider taste.
Late night text can't fall asleep grab both arms, I call for keeps.

 

Today Left Me With

Today left me with, an illusion a misguided belief.
It filled all the holes in my heart, a whisper in my ear a new start.

Today left me with, a summer lost a what if.
I fell asleep in your arms, I wish I could have stayed.

Today left me with, a sunburnt smile a first kiss,
And it filled all the blanks in my heart, a whisper in my ear, a new start.

 

Carousel
