Lyrics

Frozen in Love

Here in this place I am torn apart

Breathing in and holding
And waiting for you to call
I am frozen in love without you
Don’t let me think of the things you have said
I’m confused, where are you?
I’m still waiting for you to call
I am frozen in love without you
Don’t let me think what would be if I lost you
Don’t make me start again

 

Old

I was in the spotlight
From an early age
I was learning quickly
I would make mistakes
Life was all around me
Reaching out to take
That’s the thing about me
There’s no time to waste
Old, don’t wanna get old
Beat, beat, beat, my heart beats slow
Capture every moment
Growing up too fast
Do I leave it broken
Call it innocence?
Am I missing something
In my thousand songs?
If you’re looking at me
I’m just watching on
Old, Don’t wanna get old
Beat, my heart beats slow
Am I missing something?
Am I not quite there?
Put your arms around me
Make me miss you more
I can see the future
Get me out of here
I can see the future
In the memories
Old, don’t wanna get old
Beat, beat, beat, my heart beats slow
Is there more than heaven?
There has got to be
Bigger than John Lennon
Make the people see
Leave a candle burning
Pass the flame along
With a final prayer
To a silent God

Deep Space Connection

We don’t explain
Away our love
Stay on the page
We wrote it off
So much to say
Best left unsaid
You turned away
I understand
When you’re near you feel so far
When you’re gone you feel so near
It’s spiritual
We made mistakes
To keep us close
You go away
I’m not alone
We are the same
We are the sum
You are my brain
We are the one
When you’re near you feel so far
When you’re gone you feel so near
It’s spiritual

All These Friends

All these friends that I chase

Promise everything
Promise time to spend
Too polite to save face
I am lonely here
Waiting for someone to stay
I would champion a change
I would wait for it
I’ve been waiting for
Someone’s hand to appear
A hand of openness and sincerity
Away
Please don’t get in my way
Walk beside me
All these friends that I chase
Try another one
Trying anything
Too much effort to waste
Bundled up in here
Break me out of it I pray
Please don’t get in my way
Walk beside me
Paint the road with our feet
Brush all my tears away
Make it clear to me
That you’ll stay
All these friends that I chase
Only one I need
Be the one for me
Put your face to my face
Land your hands on me
Push the loneliness away

 

Love 1

Love will be the one thing in this world
I can try to find it
I can try to lose it
Love will be the one thing in this world
There must be a reason for that girl

One day we’ll be together
One day we’ll be forever

And all the things we can’t believe
And all the things that we don’t need
Will burn away

Now that I have your Sex

I was looking
And enjoying
I was watching
And enjoying
And you knew it
And you put on a show for me

I brought you out
And you’re feeling better now
Now that I have your sex

I was waiting
I was patient
It was building
And you knew it

Lying in your arms

Lying in your arms the world stands still
Lying in your arms the silence is a thrill
Lying in your arms we breathe in time
And we won’t stop breathing

I crash into your eyes
In a Heartbeat

Lying in your arms time slows down
I see it passing by
Lying in your arms there’s no one else around
There’s no place to hide
Lying in your arms there’s nothing else I need
You’re the water I drink and the air I breathe

Dance with me tonight
Take a chance with me
Stay here all night- It’s the only plan I have
It will be alright

Not a lot to Say

How do you feel tonight?
Staring at the phone
is it time to break the silence?
Why are we both alone?
It’s not quite right
But we can’t help where our home is
And the heart cries out
What is all of this about?
Trying to understand the way love works
If it’s scientific
Then how come what we made
Disagrees with it?
One day when we grow older
It’ll become clear

There’s not a lot to say
You’re all alone, and I’m all alone
I should be there
There’s not a lot to say
we’re all alone and we feel this way
it’s crazy

Before I went away
Long before I put us in this place
Before I made mistakes
I thought I had it sorted
But I can’t forget your face
Do you believe in make believe?
And fairytales and happy endings?
Don’t waste a kiss
Cause the love we’ve got could be just this

How do you know the time that it takes you?
How do you know as time goes by?
How do you know if love’s gotta break you?
How do you know if you don’t just try?
Paris In The Winter

Lying in empty parks with wind as cold as ice
Watching the lamppost lines of trees against the sky
Writing a fairytale against the sky of grey
Now I’m back in Paris
I don’t know what to say

Cause it’s hard to know which way to go
Without you

Drifting away, we put the river to shame
Going nowhere up the cold Champs-Elysees
And the city framed your face
And it takes me back to that place
Where I was not alone in Paris
This world is just a maze

I’ll trade up all my summers
For Paris in the winter
Falls To You

Time slows down
Tell me where now
Are you hiding from me? Flying slowly?
Winding up as it bears down
Is our number at the end this round?

Corner me with your sweet dreams
Now I’m shouldering uncontrollable things
Take me out, give me peace now
Cause I’m still a slave to how you make me feel

And the hand with which you hold me
Is the hand which breaks my heart
It falls to you

Look up there in the thin air
Can you see us drifting? Disappearing?
I can’t rest ‘till I make sense
Of my hopes and dreams in middle distance

And I’ll crawl up to your ankles

1997teen

Empty dance floor
Mirrorball
All the girls were pretty but all the boys were shy
Cause we were falling in love at first sight
Everything was scary because it felt so right
Seventeen was right honey seventeen

I remember how you’d say love was the thing to be in

Do you remember when I took your hand and smiled?
Looked into your eyes
We couldn’t dance to dance our lives
It didn’t matter cause the music didn’t lie
We had the time of our lives
And we were dancing in the sky
Seventeen was right
Honey seventeen

And the way you looked at me
1997teen

Tonight the stars are our mirrorball
Seventeen for life
Honey seventeen

Falling Stars are Breaking Up

She wants to go
Looking alone for something
And I don’t know
What she’s gonna find
Now she’s all alone
When engines drone
And take her for the sky
We don’t see eye to eye
Overthrow all of the plans we’re making
Cross fade into another life
And there’s nothing sweet
About this so called ‘bittersweet’ goodbye
We don’t see eye to eye

Falling stars don’t mean that much
When you’re a world away they look so beautiful
Still they’re breaking up like us
And they’re alone without a friend to keep ‘em warm

She believes the ocean’s just a fine line
Feeding me to follow her with the tide
But a path that’s drawn in sand won’t last
And I am left behind
We don’t see eye to eye

But I’m gonna wait a beat for her
When she’s on satellite delay
And I’m gonna be the beach for her
When she comes home to me I pray

Corona and Lime

Radio station promotion croissant
In my hot little hand from the coffee I bought
Last night was awesome and now I’m awake
To a world I was looking for and I cannot wait
I must have slept under the Brandenberg Gate

And why is that man with a gun yelling at me?
And if I spoke German I’d probably be scared
He thinks that I’m drunken and English and homeless
And he leaves me alone cause he knows I don’t care
Yeah he goes cause he knows I don’t care

Now I remember last night
Corona and Lime

Where did that Mexican girl that I fell for
Go when she left me alone on the dance floor?
Probably back to her hotel room floor
28 storeys come hell or high walls
I’d have been happy to sleep on her floor

Remember last night
Corona and Lime
Another Corona and Lime
I was kissed by a Mexican girl for the first time last night

Now I’m waking up underground so I must be dead
Cause the underground stations are not open yet
No the U-bahn hasn’t started up yet

The Wire

Dying to sleep
But my eyes aren’t closing
I’m on the wire
Going round in these circles
I grind to beginning
I’m still on the wire
If the night is a love song
What will I be singing
When one day I wake and you’re gone?
But the night’s not falling
It just sinks like a stone

Love be my song
Let your love be my song – I’ll sing it

The moon’s like a pill
It just twists and distracts you
I’m still on the wire
The sky’s like a pillow I can’t get my head into
And I’m wondering why
I can hold myself captive
In the walls of my mind
When you’re not at the window
Looking into my eyes
Girl you touch me like lightening
You start me like fire
I need you tonight
I need you tonight

Love be my song
Let your love be my song – I’ll sing it
Love be my song
Cause I’m losing my mind
And you’re in it

Fever

Baby
You’ve seen quite a bit
For lately
Nothing seems to fit
Yeah baby
You’re so quiet when you’re making
All the dumb things sing yeah
Fever ooh yeah

The fever runs in my head
It burns baby burns
Its love baby love

Save me
Cool my frightened brow
I’m crazy
For you and all your words
Yeah baby
You’re all twists and burns for changing
Buildings blue and skies to red
Fever ooh yeah

Is this love ooh yeah
Is this love
My love

All Broke Down

So confused that the words I use
They won’t stick together
A bit like lovers
And my angel’s at the other end
But I can’t get through to her

I fade away
From the end of the meaningless
Conversation that we had today
Now I’ve got nothing more to lose
If there was I’d find a way

And it all broke down
It all broke down today
And all the sunlight in the world couldn’t break through me
And all that you and I have left
Is me to blame

I have become
What my dreams would not condone
So they turn their back on me
Now I’m lying here alone
Holding on to nothing but the way I breathe
So confused that the things I didn’t say
Might have helped us out today
Now I’ve got nothing more to lose
Look around love, be on your way

Lost Your Mind

The curtains are calling
The posters are down
The end of the evening
Is coming around
She’s out on the concourse
I’m out of my mind
She cuts to the dreaming
The crowd goes quiet

She said
Don’t forget this moment

We’re holding together
It’s suddenly real
She dances in time
I try keep her still
She’s lost in the moment
And perfectly quiet
I’m thinking of reasons
She’s thinking of rhymes
She said don’t forget this moment
She said don’t forget what we had

And I know I won’t forget it
I won’t leave the truth behind
Cause I know it must be better
To have loved than lost your mind

Is everything over
When night fades to day?
We’re falling to sunrise
It gets in the way
Another true story
Fades into a dream
So love is the beauty
Of things unseen

And I don’t wanna forget you
I still wanna miss you
I still wanna cry
Cause I know it must better
To have loved than lost your mind

Breaking Boundaries

So alone in here with you
We cry
So much secrecy we hold from outside
I’m breaking boundaries with you
All night

Dangerously in love
We might as well be safe in each other’s arms
I’m breaking boundaries with you
Stay calm

And we will govern love the way we’re meant to
And we will consummate our constitution
In this room we are in hiding
And we want to be left alone

Rock’n’roll, Soho and the Coffee

I get away early
Make my way through buses and trains
But they don’t listen to me
Those city boys with briefcase for brains
So I pick up my guitar

Come on you city boys running the world
We’re living the rock’n’roll life

Now I’m walking at street level
Watching the 8 O’clock show
With a takeaway coffee
Even though I’ve got nowhere to go
And the city boys look busy
They’re always doing overtime
While the Borderline is empty
But we sure as hell packed it out last night
It’s the rock’n’roll life

Come on you city boys
You song and dance girls
We’re living the rock’n’roll life
And we know what it means to be right

Music is my therapy
My guitar takes notes
And I paint myself a picture of words
For a song that I wrote
This one’s about rock’n’roll, soho and the coffee
Stars can have their bucks you know
Cause it’s not about the money

I can teach the world to sing
Cause I believe the rock’n’roll dream’s alive

Falling Stars

Falling stars breaking up

She wants to go she wants a change
She used to have a thing for life
She wants it back again
Now she’s all alone when engines drone and take her for the sky
She’s on the rise
Still we don’t see eye to eye

When she returns I’ll know she’s mine
But she’s become a star up there and she’s taking her time
Still there’s nothing sweet about this so called ‘bittersweet’ goodbye

Are we farther away than we thought?
Are we stars?
Are we starting to fall?

She says to me the ocean’s just a fine line
In between looking into her eyes
Now I’m staring out to sea
But I can’t see what she means tonight

But I’m gonna wait a beat for her when she’s on satellite delay
And I’m gonna be the beach for her when she comes home to me I pray

Amsterdam

It’s 45 minutes to Amsterdam
Back to the place where it all began
Trapped in my trench coat
In snow and rain
I’m never falling in love again

So here I am soaking on your doorstep
And cracks are appearing around my footsteps
I warn you I’m leaving before the ice starts melting
I’m never falling in love again

Standing on the edge
I’m down to my heart’s last breath
I can’t fall in love with you again
Amsterdam
Standing at your door
I’m begging for words to break my fall
I can’t fall in love with you at all
Amsterdam

These melting intentions like flakes of snow
These beautiful visions and down they float
This forest of cobblestone streets
Tell me where does it end?
I’m never falling in love again

Should have I tried to wait for the right moment?
Should have I tried? I know

Standing at your door
I can’t breathe in this cold war
I can’t fall in love with you anymore
Amsterdam
Castle

Fears have found a way in me
They hide in wait to steal my destiny
Here we go
Step down on my knees
Tears you know
Drown the words in me

Free
Free is all I want
Free from your emotions
Entangled in my heart

You
You’ve done something to me
And you let everybody see
Strange how brutal love can be
Deranged that I can hardly breathe

Free
Free is all I want
Freedom from the danger
Of falling through your arms
You
Hold you by my side
Can’t hold you for any longer girl
It’s written in your eyes

I don’t know you
I don’t see you
And I’m alone in this town
Where my heart was with you
And I will go through the night
Lost in these clouds
I can’t feel you
And I can’t see through the dark
That has fallen around
All the things we went through
How I held you
And you’re still haunting this town
But now I don’t know the way out
Do you know how to break through these clouds?
I need away out

Truth
Truth is all I know
Truth can be in my room
But I live on my own

See
See me from afar
See me ghost riding
I know where you are

Two Knees

Sitting at home with the light on alone

I woke up at 4
The lights were all left on
The window’s open and it’s bringing in a storm
The TV’s raging
I must be on my own
I don’t feel like moving
I don’t feel like moving on

Baby can’t you see I’ve only got two knees
And I can’t live confined to all these memories

I put a coat on, shut the window, stop the rain
I leave a single light on just in case you’re coming back again
I’m waiting up cause I’ve got nothing left to do
I wonder how many more hours until I see you
I pace the hallways and the pages of my head
I’m feeling like I’m bottled up inside this corner of my bed
Every morning starts and ends with heavy nights
I can’t feel you, I can’t feel myself and I don’t feel right

On the balcony in my drowning symphony
I’m all alone
I’m all the way down
On the balcony I’ve left a light on can’t you see?

Now every night wins the fight for my attention
And the eleventh hour was long ago but I’m not sleeping
We need more space and time
I know that’s what you’re thinking
But baby space and time
Aren’t supposed to be the same dimension
Miss Delicate

She waits for a ride
Café’s warm but the outside’s freezing
It’s just another night
It didn’t work and she’s lost that feeling

But she doesn’t know
Love is around the corner waiting for her

Maybe she’s lonely
Maybe she’s underrated
It’s a beautiful story
She’s a beautiful writer of it
She closes her eyes
She dreams of warm conversations
Of the night time and fine wine occasions

Be patient and stay with it
You’re on your own now
But you’re safe in the scheme of things
Won’t let you fall down
When you’re faced with a calling
You’ve got to go there
And that’s when you’ll find it
Then it will be clear
Just hold out baby

Elbows on the bar
Holding her smile up above her heart
Sliding like a side car
She wants to hold on to what she hasn’t got
RSVP

I’ve got nothing to hold onto
Except all the things I lose
And I’m lost in a beautiful past with you
And don’t you know it

I give too much of myself away
And you listen silently
There must be something that you could say
To break this silence
Make it go away

Do I say I still love you if I do?
Or do I play a game so cruel?

I wait
I’m biding my time with songs
The ones that you hooked me on
I wait on open-ended situations
I’ve unwrapped another one

First Kiss

I say to you what life is this that we share together?
There could be love here
And you’re telling me you need a friend
But there must be more to this
If you could see
All the good things that we’ve both got going here
Then I believe
A little less conversation could be all we need
So baby get in line
And I’ll look you in the eye
If it takes too much time
We’ll never realize

All the world is waiting for
Are sparks to fly
And words to fall away
All the world is waiting for tonight
Is you and I to get this first kiss over with

I’m holding on to the look in your eyes when we locked together
In just that moment
And I made a little move to find
Where you’re heart’s been hiding
There’s more to say
I’ll give a little bit more
Every day you’re with me
Keep you hanging on
I’ll be holding you there
And you won’t escape me

You could be the one I love
The one I fall for
The only one for me
Carry On

Come on, come to me
Because you’ve been so far away
All I do is miss you incredibly
So desperately
Sunshine you can warm me
But starlight, you’re so far away
And its going to be a long time darling till you get to me
But will you be my star anyway?

Tonight honey
The stars will never shine brighter than your eyes
I’ll carry on honey
Waiting for the next time I hold you tight
Tonight honey
The stars will never shine brighter than your eyes
And if you’re mine honey
It’s gonna be a long time but that’s alright

Baby do you think of me?
Do you think that I’m crazy waiting here for you?
Well it’s probably true, but hey, you got me
So I don’t know what else I can do
Tidal Wave

Baby I’m on your tidal wave of lovin
You’re holding me and you take away my breathing
I’m falling down your beautiful face
I’m riding through your beautiful days

Hey, can you give me a wave?
Sweetie my babe
I feel like getting my feet wet today

Baby I’m on your tidal wave of lovin
I’m drinking strawberry lemonade and floating
I’m feeling effortlessly embraced
It feels like I must be off my face
An Hour and a Heart

Standing alone in the afternoon
That’s where you said you’d be
Waiting here for me
But you’re still at home – nothing is new
And I don’t do old so well
Don’t you know that girl?

I think you should know
I don’t need to be alone
I’ll change the things I can but you put me in your hands
Now doesn’t that show the power of your words?

Just let your yes be yes
Cause you know it hurts

It’s only an hour you say
I’ve wasted an hour today
It’s only an hour to you but
I’ve wasted an hour and a heart on you

Open my eyes, shut down my trust
Teach me to live by sight
No, that’s not alright
So let me rise to the challenge of love
I won’t give up because
It’s not good enough
My Sisters Wedding Song

Lost in your eyes
I’m drowning and holding onto you
You came to my life
And you changed all my lines
Now they’re all for you

There must be a million fish in the sea
But you are the only one for me
There must be a million stars in the sky
Which one was made for you and I?

How could it be
That I never believed
I would find you here?

It’s funny how a lifetime of change can be captured in just one day

Take this Town

There’s a blessing in the city tonight
So get on down into it
And the starlit sky is open wide
Like a big warm blanket

It must be perfect
And life is worth it
Every minute

Take this town
Nothing’s free except you and me
We’ve got friends around
With starring roles in our life stories

Come away with me and we’ll learn about
The beautiful things in life
I’ve been trying hard to work it out
I just wanna be by your side

Make the most of your life
Get back to the times of hope and love
And faith like a child
Some Candles

Falling flat on one of my many faces
My broken heart still beating cause it hurts
I can’t feel your arms so mine are useless
You’d have thought that I’d have somehow learnt

Oh I just can’t believe you got hold of me
now I can’t let go
How’d you get my heart like the way it is
So finish what you start

Don’t just leave me here
Some candles weren’t meant to burn at both ends

Leaving you was hard enough to get right
But all of my mistakes will find a way
All the while I’m crying like a critic
That’s caught up in this episode with me

Memories filed away are younger than the first day
That I believed you’d be always here for me
Silver Things

Platform stands tell me where I am
Ten years late but I still made the 6am
turns and bends, carriage cornered friends
rest their heads on the shoulders of a happy end

Powered skies sending love strong flares
Catch my eyes from the bottom of my bucket chair
Things have changed I’m not young like then
Getting away is now my only window in
and all I’ve hoped and dreamed of is fading away

love’s a flare, a bright red flare
looking for me but I’m not there

God above help me understand
That broken means can still result in perfect ends
And when my kids, the 21st century legends
Teach me this
Maybe I can be like them?
She’s so Stark

She beams her stories through darker nights
She dreams on standby to satellites
She greets my heart with occasioned smiles
She takes the moment

She’s so me
My wonder
She’s so stark

She’s in her own world and far behind
She makes the trains look like they run on time
She makes the world stand still until it’s right
She hoards the moonlight

That makes the both of us
That makes us what we are

She brings it down on its feet again
She stands her ground with her open hand
And she won’t allow me to understand
Driving

Take me back in time and strand me there
I’m never far away from it
Cause I remember you
You were dancing with my heartbeat
On dusky nights and streetlit streets
You seemed to know the tune

I’m driving through these memories
My heart’s at the wheel
My head’s in the back seat screaming
Colliding with these memories
Telling me that these things that I make
Are stranger than mistakes

Take me back to where I was
The day before all this got lost
Before it all fell over
I was lonely in your town
The one way laneways stood their ground
I couldn’t come much closer

Colliding with these memories
Wondering if these things that I make
Are stranger than mistakes

Am I allowed to miss you?

Is there glare amongst the coldest heart?
A candle lights a fire starts
I can’t put it out
Tuesday

Tuesday loves me like you say
You breathe life into my every day
So take a hold and make believe
We can take this world by storms and seas

Who would I be without you?
Don’t know
Who would I know if I don’t know you?
Don’t want to know

Clouds and I belong outside
As we breathe the air and open wide
Tuesday’s gone by Wednesday night
And the atmosphere is clearly white

And it will be alright

If I’ve gone by wayside
