Биография:

Meshing dreamy, feedback-drenched guitars with airy, catchy melodies, Lush were one of the most prominent shoegazing bands of the early '90s. Led by guitarists Miki Berenyi and Emma Anderson, the British band earned a cult following within the British and American undergrounds with its first EPs, yet the group never quite attained the critical respect given to its peers My Bloody Valentine and Ride. Even so, Lush lasted longer than any other of their contemporaries (with the exception of the Boo Radleys), developing sharp pop skills as their career progressed. By the time of their final album, 1996's Lovelife, they had converted themselves into a power pop band with dream pop overtones, which resulted in the greatest chart success of their career. Their success was dealt a blow when drummer Chris Acland committed suicide in the fall of 1996, effectively bringing the band to an end. Miki Berenyi, Emma Anderson, Chris Acland, Steve Rippon (bass), and Meriel Barham (guitar) formed Lush in 1988 in London, England. Prior to the group's formation, school friends Berenyi and Anderson had collaborated on a fanzine together, as well as played in a number of other bands individually. Anderson, who had been working as a DHSS clerical assistant, had played bass with the Rover Girls, while Berenyi had been a member of I-Goat, Fuhrer Five, and the Lillies. Berenyi's then-boyfriend, Acland had previous played with several other groups as well, including Panik, Infection, and A Touch of Hysteria. Barham left Lush soon after the band's formation to form the Pale Saints, and the remaining members began playing around London, quickly earning a number of fans, including Robin Guthrie of the Cocteau Twins. Guthrie helped the band secure a contract with 4AD Records, and they released their acclaimed debut EP, Scar, in 1989. Lush supported the EP with opening tours for Loop and the Darling Buds, and by 1990, they had graduated to headlining tours of their own. Throughout 1990, the band's reputation in the British music press began to grow as they released the acclaimed EPs Mad Love and Sweetness and Light, played high-profile gigs like the Glastonbury Festival, and became favorites of the music weeklies' gossip columns. Gala, an album compiling their three EPs, became the band's first American release at the end of 1990. Lush spent most of 1991 recording their debut album, releasing the Black Spring EP in the spring. Rippon left the band during the sessions, and was replaced by Philip King, a former picture researcher for NME and a previous member of Felt, Servants, and Biff Bang Pow. Lush finally released their delayed debut album, Spooky, in the spring of 1992. While the album sold well, reaching the British Top Ten and topping the U.K. indie charts, it was criticized in the press for Guthrie's heavy-handed production. The band supported the album in America by appearing on the second Lollapalooza tour, but their dream pop wasn't well-received by an audience hungry for metal. Lush released their second album, Split, in the summer of 1994 to mixed reviews. Split was lost in the twin waves of Brit-pop and American post-grunge, even through the band's songwriting was more pop-oriented than ever. After regrouping during 1995, Lush returned in early 1996 with Lovelife, an album that showcased a debt to the pop-single ideals of Brit-pop. The musical changeover paid off as "Single Girl" and "Ladykiller" became their two biggest hit singles, and the album became a British Top 20 hit; in America, it was their highest-charting album, even if it just scraped the charts at 189. Lush had completed their supporting tours and summer festival appearances when Chris Acland unexpectedly hanged himself in his parent's house on October 17, 1996. Devastated by his death, the remaining members of Lush went into a long period of mourning, eventually disbanding.

Тексты группы:
Gala

Sweetness and light

See my life (I've been so tired)
See my self (I've been uptight)
See my life (I've been so tired)
See my sight (I could disappear)

See with you memories fading fast
And with you it's never going to last

You are the sweetness in my eyes
You are an apple in disguise

See with you
I never seemed to look the other way

Only to stay, only to breathe
Only to see
That space and light is what I really need

I never wanted to tell lies
You are the sweetness in my eyes

You are the juice I need for life
You are the sweetness in my eyes

Sunbathing

Sunbathing, and she came down from above
Close my eyes and I feel like I'm in love
Wrapped in silk, how I got here I don't know
Tastes like milk and there's nowhere else to go

Soft red lips, slowly open wide
Honey drips and I long to feel inside
Deep and warm, the only to place to be
Sleep til dawn, then she does the same for me

Drawn fine line, heal my bad spine
Close together, now its all mine
Wake in sunlight, sunlight bleak white
Realise she's gone

Breeze

Pink cloud sits sky high
Skips to the starlight
Rains tinsel whispers
Breeze blows away

I crawl inside me
My eyes to heaven
Pink cloud sits sky high
Breeze blows away

Silver air everywhere, doesn't care
But silver winds cut my skin everywhere

Breathe in green velvet
My lips taste warm earth
Pink cloud sits sky high
Breeze blows away

Summer sun, so much fun, colours run
Hot summers kiss, cloudless bliss burns my tongue

De luxe

I've been waiting on the slide
Suggest I open wide
No incentive to hide
Happy coursing through my veins
Don't even know my name
When I'm up you're coming down

Inside of me, some sight to see
Some sight to feel our earthy bed

When we're wrapped in polythene
What's that supposed to mean
Paper flowers bring me luck
No birds in sight I fear
Stick sticks in you my dear
When I'm up you're coming down

Some say I'm vague
And I'd easily fade
Foolish parade of fantasy

Drink in your eyes
Drink in you sighs
Grass in my thighs my aching legs

Leaves me cold

Dreams deep heat teasing my mind
Sleep peels sweet stealing my sighs
She breathes deep when he's inside
Dreams deep heat poisons my mind

Inside me there's a separate world
It's winning and I'm losing control
I'm coming but my eyes are closed
I'm coming but it leaves me cold

Night's bright lights dim in the day
Blind eyes smile at you today
I find I'm falling away
My eyesights never the same

Inside me there's a separate girl
She's winning and I'm losing control
She coming but my eyes are closed
She's coming but I wake up and it leaves me cold

Downer

In me you'll see
Dirt flows freely
But you may find
That my thoughts are unkind

Pure life needs knife
Cuts off my life
But as you see
Hurting you you bless me

I always wanted to cry
After the act close my eyes
I always longed for the deep
Then I just wanted to sleep

Blood stream cruel dream
Never make clean

Down by my side I feel safe when I hide
So you can see that my thought are for me

Thoughtforms

Come on little man now all's said and done
All tht I'm asking is you show me some fun
I need purple veins and scenic greens
They can make me soar and touch extremes

I just fell down from whitest skies
And now I start to realise
And all the colours talk to me

And if I had wings then I could take you in
I'd stay on the ground and I could teach you things
The grass is strewn with blades of gold
These sights and songs I have been told
All hopes desires that seem to sing

Come on little man now you're times nearly through
Colours are dripping down red and blue
I'm standing in the middle of a great glass ball
I'm told that I've nothing but I'm having it all

I just rose up from blackest seas
My eyes were opened so widely
And its a shame to end this way

Baby talk

Swallowed her down, she's inside me
She's struggling now, she can't break free
And my eyes are closed, my lips are sealed
She can't escape but I can feel

Kicks in me

Climbing my spine, she's inside me
Wants to escape, wants to breathe
And I wish I could tell you what she feels
And I wish I could hear when she speaks

In my sleep
In my dreams

Scarlet

Nothing can eclipse
Tender fingertips
Youthful girlish hips
Crimson pouting lips

But what d'you say when nothing's meant
What d'you do when all is spent

Faithless faceless night
Drenched in empty light
Scarlet starlet's bright
Vanity's delight

Cream of life you'll find in her
First to come she's first to serve

Turned away you're out of luck
Spurned again
No one to fall in love

Bitter

Just don't imagine that I'll still remember you
Don't even think I'll try
I'll take my memories and drown them in my glass
And then I'll drink a toast of bitterness and wash you from my heart

I count the blessings that took you away from me
I laugh to think I cried
I don't need what you got I don't miss what you do
'Cause I can raise my glass and drink a toast of bitterness to you

And now my mind recalls no memory of you
And so I raise a smile and drink a toast of bitterness to you

Just don't imagine that I still remember you
Don't even think I care
You took your love elsewhere and I drank mine away
With bitter thoughts of you that washed my memories of you away

Second sight

Peel back empty night
Grey dawn breaks into white
Sun climbing the sky
Your eyes reflecting the light
Clouds out of sight
But when the day is through
Will I see you again

Keep your eyes on me
Don't let go of my hand
Running together
We go together so well
I can tell

Run where I run
Play what I play
Do what I do
But when this day's through
Will I see you again

Etheriel

I know it hurts to see
That in the end they sympathized with me
And though it hurts to say
It couldn't happen any other way

I remember when you were free
No one else then you came to me
Cursed you then that it couldn't last
All the laughs we had in the past

And if it hurts you too
I hope you know that I'm still fond of you
And if its still unfair
Remember that I thought you never cared

Sing to me, comfort me, turned away
Someone else takes my place

And so you made your choice
When I needed most to hear your voice
But you were never there
And that was when I thought you never cared

Spooky

Stray

in your green field sleep
chasing through the trees
do you still see me?
do you still hear me?

do you still meet me?

Nothing natural

before I met you I was blind
pills and liquid filled my mind
beneath your outline I was new
overflowing with your tune

and don't you know you're beautiful

next month I missed you like a child
couldn't see past you though I tried

and don't you know you're beautiful

now I think of every hour
when you still retained your power
and the precious nights we'd share
when we'd breathe in common air

the feeling now you're gone
this wretched life goes on
the knife inside of me
it turns just like a key

the sunlight always comes too soon
my body asks me what to do
I was so small and vulnerable
and you were only beautiful

the seasons shining in your hair
and it was more than I could bear
but I can see you in my smile
and you are only beautiful

Tiny smiles

I'd like to do
something for you
you want me to
she's just the same
she likes to play

I'll hide kisses in your hair

don't feel ashamed
you're not to blame
it's just a game
but just the same
what would they say

baby angel on my knee

our lips are sealed

come sit with me
slide on my knee
sing just for me
and for a while
I'll make you smile

baby angel on my knee
I know what you want from me

I'll make you smile

outside she's listening
to laughter and whispering
but she won't say nothing to him, see

she's just the same

Covert

I'm hiding inside me
eye sees through my smile
as I shine
for the eyes of another

let him inscribe
what he admires
let him inspire
so many lies
I can provide
any disguise

night folds me beside you
I hide from your eyes
for I know
this illusion is kinder
than what you'll find
inside
if I reveal
my crime

my deception
my invention
my obsession

you may despise
what you may find
hiding behind
all of the lies
let me provide
one more disguise

you won't understand me
I can't let you try
still I dream
of the day you discover

I am the spy

Ocean

come with me
into a cool blue stream
bleed into oceans green
lips open wide
drinking the tide

reach for me
here where the ocean sea
melts and you sink with me
deeper inside
I'll make you mine

take me down
down where their voices drown
down where the only sound
echoes for me

floating away
under the waves
kiss me again
you'll tell me when
salt on my lips
cool fingertips
under the sea
stay here with me

For love

pretty little girl, she shines
knowing she is young, she smiles
happy just to be a prize
happy just to see his smile

silly little girl, she tries
thinking she is good, and wise
doesn't recognise the lies
pouring from her lips, she sighs:

"this is so real,
it's what I feel,
I look in your eyes and lose myself"

silly little girl denies
ever understanding why
her face is full of sad surprise
every time she hears him cry:

"what do you feel
when you're with me?
I look in your eyes and see myself"

but there's no connection,
just his own reflection
isn't this the way you wanted me?
(what do you mean?)
in love with you
(what do I feel?)
do anything
(what do you mean?)
for you

she looked in his eyes to lose herself

and when it falls apart, she cries
doesn't think to look inside
she just covers up her eyes
doesn't see her own disguise

and though she feels this sorrow,
it will fade tomorrow
she'll pretend that this was really love
(what do you mean?)
she'll make their fall
(what did I feel?)
seem beautiful
(what do you mean?)
she won't remember this at all
(what do you mean?)
she won't recall
(what did I feel?)
the truth at all
(what do you mean?)
she wants to fall
(what did I feel?)
again
(what do you mean?)

Superblast!

me in the world
losing tears, shedding fears
strain for the sun
make you run, make you come

you don't know
you don't know

I'm in my home
all the time, on my own
low finger fine
take what's mine, from behind

you don't know
you don't know
it's not there
you don't care

you're still inside of me
beneath the cotton core
my pictures smile at me
and soon they'll rise and soar

fill up my space
turn around, fade and trace
be absolute
blue and white, fatal fruit

she nylon smile
full of lies, shining eyes
cover my grin
take a chance, maybe win

it's not there
it's not fair
you don't know
you don't care

Untogether

it's not easy
but try to picture this: do
you remember
that we were once together?
isn't it strange
isn't it?
I'm sorry it's come to this but
why are we here,
bothering?
what was it we talked about? so

just remind me
of why I'm wasting so much
time pretending
that there is something more than
only this
only
this pointless accusation
tell me again,
why are we here?

I'm not offended by the
things that you say
'cause it's such a predictable
way to behave
talk and insult me 'til you're
blue in the face
you were right, I was wrong, now does
that make you happy?
I'm quite aware of all the
bad things I did
you don't have to remind me of
why you dislike me
there's no solution to the
mess that we're in,
it's so sad and so boring
I wish you'd just leave me alone

but I understand the games you play
I'm ashamed of all the things I did to you

Fantasy

when I'm home I listen hoping for a clue
and you know they can't tell us what to do
when you're gone, out of sight not out of mind
but you know this feeling took me years to find

and your eyes, they always know where it hurts
and your lips kiss me 'til I'm fit to burst
each day you watch me with your static gaze
and smile, naked at my silly ways

planets spin around your head
milk and sugar in your bed
even when you're far away
I can hear you every day

wise hands grasping the delicate prize
I just wait for the time of our lives

no one knows what's going on
they don't know where we belong
let you swim around my face
live inside my special place

it's only you that holds the key
don't know what you do to me
in our little secret world
I can be your little girl

my desires can't be bought in black and white
only you make me feel secure inside
for I know you really love no one but me
and I smile because they think it's fantasy

Take

he's perfect
at least within his dreams
he's perfect
to satisfy my scheme

he doesn't know my game
I don't recall his name

and though it's true
my flesh is new
believe me dear
my mind is clear

he's smiling
(smiling at me)
he thinks he's won the night
I'm laughing
(laughing at him)
imagine what you like

I know he's seen
inside I'm green
but still he's blind
to what goes on inside my mind

he's smiling
(smiling at me)
he thinks he's won the night
I'm thinking
(thinking of me)
imagine what you like

he claimed his prize
I had my price
I know it's cruel
but I refuse
to be the only one to lose

Laura

mirror maid, tummy ache
make-up run
lipstick girl, black stick curl
in the new york sun

inside out, you know about my
silly game
even though, you don't know
about my name

where I've been
what I dream
what I seem

clumsy eyes realise how to
write the word
basically, you sing for me
when I am hurt

stoned and blind, never mind
luckie's song
press the keys, I can be
where you belong

I'm a fan
of your hand
ooh

and
I'm in love
cry above
ooh

and
I'm a fan
of your hand
every man
ooh

Monochrome

wake with the sun
what's going on, when you're gone
fall asleep when you're near
what's going on, when you're here

and sometimes I think if I stand by the phone it may ring
and sometimes I worry and fear what tomorrow may bring
and you sing
and you sing

breathe with your sigh
makes me high, don't know why
touching your skin
wishing you were within

your eyes are like saucers but mine are just clouded in grey
I've so much to tell but I can't and you just go away
anyway
won't you stay

wake with the sun
what's going on, when you're gone
and when I lost control
I was cold, and I felt old

the ground is beneath me but slowly it's falling away
you say we're like children so why won't you come out and play?
and sometimes I think if I look at the phone it may ring
and sometimes I worry and fear what tomorrow may bring
when you sing
when you sing

Split

Light from a dead star

He lives his life in a world full of women
And he takes what he wants from their love
And he throws the rest away I cling to him and pray
But still he slips away
And now it's just too late
To wish him back again
She won't put up with this life so she leaves him
And she finds someone else, falls in love
And she travels far away I say that it's ok
And swallow all my pain
And now it's just too late
To wish her back again
They left me here on my own in a nightmare
And I just can't forgive anymore
So I smile and turn away
Don't listen when they say
They wish I could stay
And now it's just too late
To wish me back again

Kiss chase

Tiny children on their own they learn so fast
How to make new friends, how to play their new games
I remember a man he had shiny hair
Always hanging around when you went away
Little eight year old, she knows too many secrest
Much too young to understand what it means
I remember a woman with silver hair
And the smell and the taste of the bed we shared
And that's how I beahved
Every time that you went away
And now, though I'm older nothing's changed (playing the same games)
And I knew every day
Came a chance that you'd leave me
So I found what I could to take your place
Told me not to cry
Said that I'd survive
As he waved goodbye
And I want to try
Not to make you cry
Want us to survive
Never say goodbye
But that's how I behave when you go away
Because though I'm older nothing's changed (playing the same games)
And I know every day
There's a chance that you'll leave me
So I find what I can to take your place

Blackout

I'm not interested in what you have to say
You're just a vacant space
Other people's lives upon which you prey It's a permanent disgrace
Why do you think you know what's best for me
What I should and shouldn't do
Why do you judge my history
And tell me to improve In the confines of your mind
You think we're all the same I've left them all behind
Though you wish I hadn't In finding fault in others I can't see
What you have to gain I know that you get pleasure from
Other people's pain
You're not so perfect and I realise the scene
That you're all coming from
When you say you care I know what you mean
You're really lying
All the poeple around here
Love to hear about a fall
They all surface and disappear
In an instant In the confines of your mind
You think we're all the same I've left them all behind
Through you wish I hadn't

Hypocrite

A silly girl I run around and never know my reasons
And though you're laughing with me
I know what you say about me
I can't explain, it's not your business anyway
So don't say you understand
And don't pretend you're on my side
And I remember when you hated her for sleeping next to him
I see your smiling face but I know you've done worse to me
You hypocrite, don't talk to me
'Cause you're not fit to know me
So don't pretend
That you could've ever been a friend
And still I'm sure you think it's ok
What you've done to me
'Cause I'm so bad to him
Don't even try to hide behind that stupid lie
I know your kind and I know where your loyalties lie
The silly girls we run around and never know our reasons
And though I understand I guess I'll say that you betrayed me I'm a hypocrite,
I dish it out but I can't take it I know you think it's wrong
And maybe you're right but this is my song
And still I'm sure you think it's ok
What she did to me 'cause I'm so bad to him
Don't even try to hide behind that stupid smile
I know our kind and I know where our loyalties lie

Lovelife

You are the one
In your concrete arms I adore you
Dirty and dear
Block out the sun
In your twists and turns I invade
You show me no fear
We blow around like tiny leaves in a big storm
Finding there's nothing left to breathe or to keep warm
You ebb and flow and your rhythm ***** my head
Leave me alone while you swallow up your dead
You are the one
You cradle me and kill
Caressing my face Leave me undone
You suffocate and have me
This is the place
Every door conceals a dream and a nightmare
Nothing is ever really pure in the stale air
And when it's dark everything becomes more clear
Lie in the park when I want to have you near
You are the one In your concrete arms
I adore you
Dusty and dear
Block out the sun In your twists and turns I invade
You show me no fear
Left it unsung I shall leave but I'll return
Poison my lungs, my blood is full of lead
Things unsaid
My love for you still burns

Desire lines

It's raining in this room
And it's so hot outside this room
I don't know no one here I don't want to be here
In this room
We hold parties in our sleep
We fill ourselves up in our sleep
And I'll heal you when you're ill
Though it's hard keeping still
In our sleep
Pries the hair out of her mouth
While the circus is heading sout
While we search in the sand
Don't ask them to understand
Why they cover up their hands
And their mouths

The invisible man

Oooh Outside you are waiting for me, hiding
You catch me when I am
Needing a friend to hold
You can soothe me, lie above me
Press hard
Then you strike
And I think that I'll die
'Cause I can't breathe, can't breathe
Please let me start screaming X3
Please let me start screaming Oooh
Please let me start screaming
Eyes are open seeing nothing
Hands are tied and I can't function
Please let me start screaming X5

Undertow

So you want to be alone
Run and hide inside your home
Watch you fall away from me
Sinking into misery
Taste your smile and hold my hand
Make you laugh and make you dance I remember this
Everything was in our kiss
Sink my hands into the sea
Reach your fingers up to me
Trust me one more time I can only try
Throw yourself to me
And I'll try to pull you free
Let me try to pull you free

Never-never

Only children sometimes comprehend
Loneliness can often be a friend
Have to shut yourself in
Don't know how to begin
Telling it to someone
Who doesn't fit in I am sunken in biology
I can control that part of me
I don't want to hurt you but I know I will do
Maybe we could find out
What are we to do I don't have long fingernails to use
Would we care if we were balck and blue?
We're both sick but still you hold my hand
We're together but I understand
Walk along the seaside
This is not a joyride
Tell me in the meantime It's ok

Lit up

You feel like I do
Like the whole world's forgotten you
And your life is so dull and predictable
Your room seems like a cell
And you don't sleep very well
And your friends only talk to point and to mock
And to ridicule
One day things won't seem the same way, I know
Morning in the mirror
Things will suddenly seem much clearer I promise, it's alright
His words don't flatter me
And they're printed for all to see I don't care, he's not there
It's all history The future's yours to hold
And you're really not very old
And your life is so white, so clean and so bright
And holds mystery
Morning in the mirror
Things will suddenly seem much clearer I promise it's alright
One day things won't seem the same way, I know
One day things won't seem the same way,
I know One day things won't seem the same way, I know

Starlust

Walking at midnight In the darkness, alone
Standing in the shadows
And I'm watching your glow
Standing in the red light
And I'm smiling at you
Dreaming of the starlight
Just waiting for you I'll do anything to
Make you mine, make me shine
Take me if you want me I don't care,
I don't mind I want your starlight
Make it mine, make me shine
Touch me with your light
And I'll burn like a star

When I die

If you walked in now I wouldn't start I wouldn't frown
And if you just appeared I woudn't cry or think it weird
'Cause you are still around
You're in the air, you're in the ground
And you can't go away I am afraid you're here to stay
Friends don't understand
They close the door, they raise their hands
She says she heard your voice
Of course she does, she has no choice I was hours ahead
When they removed you from your bed
They drank all the while
Until you said goodbye
Why are we sitting here in ourselves?
I don't look up, I don't look down I look ahead and me no sound
My love was there, I only stare Healty in my dreams
Is what you are, is what is seems
Whas does it all mean?
You're only hiding behind a screen
Curse the English day
For what it forces us to say
Banish all the pain
'Cause when I die, die I'll see you again

Lovelife

Ladykillers

Here we go, I'm hanging out in Camden
Drinking with my girlfriends on a Saturday night
This guy says, "come and meet my girlfriend"
She's sitting in the corner looking rather uptight

So I say "hello" and I try to be nice
But I see he's feeling itchy
Trying to play us off each other
"Girls, girls, please don't fight"
(You get the picture)

Hey you, the muscles and the long hair
Telling me that women are superior to men
Most guys just don't appreciate this
You just try convincing me you're better than them

So he talks for hours 'bout his sensitive soul
And his favourite subject is sex
I don't even think he really wanted it
But, Christ, this guy's too much

(I wanna tell him)
I'm as human as the next girl
I like a bit of flattery
But I don't need your practised lines
Your school of charm mentality so
Save your breath for someone else and
Credit me with something more
When it comes to men like you
I know the score, I've heard it all before

(Here comes the next one)
Blondie was with me for a summer
He flirted like a maniac but I wouldn't bite
I'm weak and he was so persistent
He only had to have me 'cause I put up a fight

Oh God, the boy had such an ego
He liked to talk about himself all day and all night
You think you're such a ladykiller
But you were nothing special 'til you turned out the light

When he's nice to me he's just nice to himself
And he's watching his reflection
I'm a five foot mirror for adoring himself
Here's seven years' bad luck

(I wanna tell him)
When you say you love me
You're just flattering your vanity
But I don't need your practised lines,
Your school of charm mentality so
Save your breath for someone else and
Credit me with something more
When it comes to men like you,
I know the score, I've heard it all before

Ooh, you're such a ladykiller,
Always on a winner, thinking that you're in there
Oh boy, you're such a ladykiller,
Super sexy mister, call it what you will, oh
You think you're such a ladykiller,
I just bet you're still there, posing in the mirror
Hey girls, he's such a ladykiller,
But we know where he's coming from and we know the score.

Heavenly nobodies

Just because they seem to understand the way you feel
It just doesn't mean that they'll feel the same way too
Just because they seem to hold a mirror to your life
It just doesn't follow that they'll be just like you

Take no heroes, it's no good
They don't stand up to you
Just take the bits you think that you can use

I remember when I was younger
I thought the answers were locked in people
So I admired the ones whose lives were
A source of envy to people like me

But do you really want to meet
The ones who write your dreams
Believe me, it's a fantasy
You won't like the reality

If you want heroes keep them safe
They don't stand up to life so
Lock them in your soul and lose the key

I love you, I don't wanna meet you X12

When I see you it makes me feel
There's someone else out there like me
You touch my soul with what you do
It all makes sense when I hear you
You understand the way I feel
I know exactly what you mean
It's like I've known you all my life
I think of you I feel alright

But in the flesh how would it be
If you could really see
The weaknesses you never knew
Alive and staring back at you

If you want heroes keep them safe
They don't stand up to life so
Lock them in your soul and lose the key
Lock them in your soul and lose the key
Lock them in your soul and lose the key

500

Shake, baby, shake
You know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake
Taking me in with all your charms

I've never been inside you but you're so alluring
They call you "little mouse" by name in Rome and Turin
Looking now at your famous shape
They don't make them like you anymore

Shake, baby, shake
You know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake
Taking me in with all your charms

When things are looking good there's always complications
I can't be with you so I'm at the railway station
Let's run away and be so alive
Escape the drudgery of this nine to five

Shake, baby, shake
You know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake
Taking me in with all your charms

Shake, baby, shake
You know I worship from afar
Brake, baby, brake
How I wish you were my car

Shake, baby, shake
You know I can fit you in my arms
Brake, baby, brake
Taking me in with all your charms

Shake, baby, shake X4
I will

I've been here before

I've tried to be strong, I've tried to be tough
But I think that this time I've had more than enough
I've seen too much of your games and your immature stuff
You're a waste of time

All the people I've known throughout all the years
Too many vodkas and too many beers
And I've learnt a few lessons from all of the tears
You're way out of line

I feel so lucky sometimes
I sit down and I look at all my friends
They mean more than the stupid fools that pass my way

I used to prefer those who weren't good for me
Somehow the attraction beat reality
Now all the rubbish they spill, it means nothing to me
I'm just much more wise

Some people grow up and some only pretend
They're all over the place, these children dressed up as men
They can't imagine how a woman can be only a friend
And they deal in lies

I feel so lucky sometimes
I sit down and listen to my friends
They say more than the empty words that pass my way
And I feel so lucky sometimes
I've got a feeling I've been here before
I can see the world for what it really is

You think that I'm jealous, well don't be so vain
I can tell in your voice you think I want you again
Well, if I did you know I think I'd be a little insane
You just leave me cold

Ooh, you and her in your sad little world
You can only exist with the help of a girl
Well, I'm glad it's not me, I've got my life to unfurl
You're just way too old

I feel so lucky sometimes
I sit down and look at all my friends
They mean more than the stupid fools that pass my way
And I feel so lucky sometimes
I've got a feeling I've been here before X4

I've been here before X8

Papasan

Maybe I should make you stay away
So you can really concentrate on where you are today
When you phone, I sit and think alone
And wonder if your life with her is really as you say

Then again, you're still a friend
I'll be loyal to you 'til the end

Come to me with wounds you want to heal
I'll listen and I'll try to understand the way you feel
Never fear that I'll be gone from here
I'll always be around for you to talk to me, my dear

We can try to justify reasons for and reasons why
Some are true and some are only lies

With fingers crossed you close your eyes
And hope that things will turn out fine
There's not a lot that I can do
If you're too weak to face the truth
'Cause if the things you tell me are
The way you really claim they are
Then I can only pity you
For being such a fool

Single girl

Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl
Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl
Don't want to be on my own again tonight
Don't want to put out the light

Single girl, I don't want to be a single girl
Single girl, who would want to be a single girl
Don't want to talk to myself again tonight
Don't want to put out the light

When you abandoned me
Well, it was heaven sent
When I abandoned you
It was what you meant
Well, it was me that knew it
And it was you that went
Haven't changed our minds
It was meant to be

Oooooooooooooooooo-wa!

Don't want to clean up your mess again tonight
Don't want to be in a fight
And I can do what I want again tonight
With who I choose, it's alright
Whoa, whoa, whoa

Single girl, I just want to be a single girl

Ciao!

Together:
I've been so happy since I walked away
I never thought that I could
Feel as great as I do today
'Cause you were nothing but a big mistake
And life is wonderful, now that I'm rid of you

Jarvis:
Oh I must've been crazy to have stayed with you
I can't believe I thought I was in love with you
But now the scales have fallen, I can really see
And I say go to hell, 'cause that's where you took me

Miki:
Well, I've felt better since I slammed that door
You always cramped my style, I never noticed before
It's been a non-stop party since I flew the coop
I can't believe I fell for such a loser like you

Jarvis:
And is it any wonder that I felt so blue
When I was always having to put up with you

Miki:
Oh, here we go again, just lay the blame on me
Don't say another word, 'cause sweetheart, you're history

[Jarvis:]
[I bet you're loving every minute of it]
[Sitting in your kitchen eating meager meals with the curtains closed]
[While in your bed I'm sitting on today]
[I don't give a damn anyway]

Miki:
I know that you miss me really, bet you wish that you still had me
You'll never find someone like me but I've got no regrets at all

Jarvis:
'Cause I've met this girl and she's so good to me
She's really beautiful, fantastic company
Oh, when I'm with her I realise what love can be
'Cause she's fifty times the person you will ever be

Miki:
Good luck, mister, do you think I care?
Since you've been gone the offers have been everywhere
I've got a million guys just lining up for me
I've turned a corner, boy, my life is ecstasy, well

Together:
I've been in heaven since I walked away
I never thought that I could feel as great as I do today
'Cause you were nothing but a waste of space
And life is wonderful, now that I'm over you

Tralala

In this world I live in
I care for number one
Hell is round the corner
Never trust no one

Funny how the people
Came to gather round
Oh so many people
When I was on the ground

I've never known what love is
There's no Mr. Right
If they want to treat me good
Then that's their sorry plight

Funny how the people
Came to give their voice
Are they really people or
Just silly little boys?

Say what you want
I don't mind, I don't mind
Say what you need
I don't mind, I don't mind
I don't mind, I don't mind

I want all the people
To notice who I am
You gotta show them what you've got
Or they won't give a damn

Say what you want
I don't mind, I don't mind
Say what you need
I don't mind, I don't mind

Last night

And even in your darkest hour
The recipe I cook for you
Can release its latent power
And make your body feel brand new

Can't you hear the music play?
Being centre of what you want
Try to leave the past behind
Memories don't appeal

Ah-oh, all the things we said
Ah-oh, all the things we did
Ah-oh, all the things that passed
Ah-oh, were satisfied

(Conversation)
Philip: So what, what was he like?
Melissa: We went out of the room, sat on the ... walked into the
bathroom/berth(?)... I don't remember anything else I had to say...
Philip: Well, that's...very well. They always say that. It's very moving.
You're not going to get away with it this time, that's for sure.

Runaway

Come on boy, I wanna dance now
Line by line we talk all night, yeah
Hold me down, I think I'm flying
Everybody's eyes are shining
Run away to where the world is fine

Hold on boy, you're falling fast now
Line by line you go nowhere, yeah
Drag me down I feel I'm sinking
Can't relate to what you're thinking
Run away to where the sun don't shine

Hello, hello, are you still there?
You don't answer me 'cause you just don't care
Act so young but you look so old
And you're too far gone to find your own way home

Life's so hard for you to handle
You can't live without your devil
Boy, you think that you're so special
Well, life is hard for everyone, believe me

Hello, hello, are you still there?
You don't answer me 'cause there's no one there
Run away from your own sweet soul
And you're too far gone to find your own way home

Hello, hello, are you still there?
You don't answer me 'cause you just don't care
Act so young but you look so old
And you're too far gone to find your own way home

The childcatcher

"Baby," he says, "You are like the clean white page and I the pen.
The innocence I find between your girlish thighs is like
The fountain of youth to my old bones."
And she replies, "Daddy's little girl's a precocious child
I love to please, I'll do anything that you ask of me
Eager to fulfill all of Daddy's needs."

"Baby, he says, "I can never love older girls like I love you.
You're easier to please and you never give me grief
'Cause you accept everything I say and do."
And she replies, "I'm in no position to make demands.
I have no past, no one else has done to me what you do.
I've got no one else to compare you to."

"And as you grow older
Try to look sixteen all your life,
Old women grow bitter
Don't let that happen to you."
"And why is it charming,
Pretending I'm younger than my years?
Why can't I grow up with dignity
set me free?"

"Baby," he says, "Now that you're older I feel our love has died.
Once upon a time you never criticised me.
Oh, I much preferred you as a child."
And I reply, "Everything you said to me was a lie.
I know your kind, you just want a daughter without the wife.
You don't need a girlfriend you need a life."

Olympia

Will I ever be Olympia?
Will I ever be a girl like her?
Will I ever have to say the word
And instantly I'll be adored?
Could I ever deign to have the look
Instead of have to read a book?
Will I ever be Olympia?
Will I ever be a girl like her?

And if ever there's a will
There's a place in Notting Hill
You can go and visit still
And if ever there's a way
To find a hopeful ray
Will I find it today?

Will I ever be Olympia?
Could I ever have a cat like her?
Could I ever lie around all day
Eating chocolate and marmalade?
Now it's time to find the perfect world
Dress myself up like the perfect girl
Could I ever be Olympia?
Could I ever be in love like her?

In the chaos of our lives
Can we ever find the time
To cherish feeling fine
And in the aftermath of pain
Can the balance be regained?
Can we ever be the same?

And now, time to switch off
Sit down, turn the lights off
Lie back, treat this sofa like your own
Look out, here comes trouble
Look out, we're in a muddle
Keep running 'til you find you've reached your home

Could I ever be Olympia?

In the chaos of our lives
Can we ever find the time
To cherish feeling fine
And in the aftermath of pain
Can the balance be regained?
Can we ever be the same?

Demystification

(Cover of Zounds)

I look out the window and I wonder at it all
Staring at the circles that decorate the wall
Everybody's going to come and join them all
But I can't go with no one till I understand the call

Don't come round for me unless you got what I
Don't come round for me unless you got what I
Don't come round for me unless you got what I want
I want some Demystification
I want some Demystification
I want some Demystification about what's going on

My electronic shaver won't plug into the wall
Now I can't go to the party, the electrician didn't call
Now I hear they're counting numbers to store them in Whitehall
There's so much information, what can they do with it all

Chorus

Some people talk of Sheba, some they talk of God
Some talk of Politicians, some they talk of love
They mystify the heroes, offer chances we could take
I'm not looking for escapism, I just wanna escape

Chorus

God's gift

What's your passion ?
I think I see
You just can't bear to let things be
What's your weakness ?
I think I know
You just can't bear to let things go

Finger in every pie
Can't let a chance pass you by

Green with envy
Your greedy eyes
Have picked the flesh from all our lives
You want others
To act the same
To flatter you with their jealously

Life is a race to be won
You've got to beat everyone
You've got to be number one

Popular and beautiful
Adored by men and women too
Perfect in every way
At least that's what you say
You've lived and loved and suffered too
No-one's a patch on you
A saint, a star, a goddess and a brain

But, the truth now
Are you happy with your lies ?
You know, nothing's perfect
Aren't you lonely with your lies

Finger in every pie
Can't let a chance pass you by
Make up your life with the lies

But don't you think that what we see
Belies the things you claim to be
A saint, a star, a goddess and a brain

Astronaut

I recall how we used to meet
Running through the windy streets
Faces touched with body heat
I know
I can see us breathing from above
Lives are changing with our useless love
Is that enough ?

To feel her pain
To be with him, the same
To see you in vain

I rely on a moment's thought
Floating like an astronaut
Hiding is the last resort
I know

I Have The Moon

(Nowhere Soundtrack / Single girl EP)

We have walked in ancient times,
And we've been burnt for many crimes,
We have envied many lives,
But we never eally died,
You have the sun I have the moon.

You have to fly around the world all day,
To keep the sun upon your face,
I'd like to come and comfort you,
But i'd be blind if I were blue,
You have the sun I have the moon.

You've come to die under the sun,
And i'll be doomed to carry on,
You have become like other men,
But yet you kiss me once again,
You have the sun I have the moon.

All this useless beauty

(On Elvis costello EP)

It's at times such as this she'd be tempted to spit
If she wasn't so ladylike
She imagines how she might have lived back when legends and history collide
So she looks to her prince finding he's so charmingly slumped at her side
Those days are recalled on the gallery wall
And she's waiting for passion or humour to strike

What shall we do, what shall we do with all this useless beauty?

Good Friday arrived, the sky darkened on time
'Til he almost began to negotiate
She held his head like a baby and said "It's okay if you cry"
Now he wants her to dress as if you couldn't guess
He desires to impress his associates
But he's part ugly beast and Hellenic deceased
So she finds that the mixture is hard to deny

Chorus

She won't practice the looks from the great tragic books
That were later defaced, disgraced celluloid
It don't even make sense but you can bet

If she isn't a sweetheart, a plaything or pet
The film turns her into an unveiled threat
Nonsense prevails, modesty fails
Grace and virtue turn into stupidity
While the calendar fades almost all barricades to a pale compromise
Our leaders have feasts on the backsides of beasts
They still think they're the gods of antiquity
If something you missed didn't even exist
It was just an ideal
Is that such a surprise?

Chorus

Half and half

(From volume)

So much happened and I couldn't deny
That I broke your feelings with the way that I lied

So I do understand the reason you became so weak.
Oh baby you're not half the person that you used to be.

Brag your exploits down the telephone
While you scatter her images around our home

And it's strange how where you feel pride I felt only shame.
I guess it's not unusual that I took all the blame.

Did you feel as guilty when you whispered out my name?

They say it takes a while
To really mean goodbye
You say you feel confused
But I'm just feeling used.

A year of misery
Has left its mark on me
I should've left you when
I wanted to but then.

It's never fair
It's never fair
It's never fair
It's never fair

I wish I could remove
The things I put you through
There's nothing I could change
If we began again.

But you don't have to take
Any more
Any more
Any more
Any more

I guess I'm only half the person that you thought I'd be
I'm thinking of the time when you first said that you loved me
I'm feeling like I'm half the person that I ought to be.

Hey hey Helen

(From gala ; written by abba)

So at last you're free
It's the way you wanted it to be
It's the price you paid
To become a woman of today
Is it worth the pain to see the children cry
Does it hurt when they ask for Daddy

Hey hey Helen
Now you live on your own
Hey hey Helen
Can you make it alone

Though you're free at last
And beginning to forget the past
Does it make you sad
When you think about the life you had
But you're right, you had to take a second chance
So you fight to find your freedom

Hey hey Helen
Now you live on your own
Hey hey Helen
Can you make it alone
Hey hey Helen
What's the matter with you
Hey hey Helen
Don't you know what to do
Ahah, yes you do yes you do
Ahah, yes you do yes you do

Hey hey Helen
Now you live on your own
Hey hey Helen
Can you make it alone
Hey hey Helen
What's the matter with you
Hey hey Helen
Don't you know what to do

Mannequin

(From whore, a wire tribute record; written by wire)

You're a waste of space
No natural grace
You're so bloody thin
You don't even begin

To interest me
Not even curiosity
It's not animosity
It's just you don't
Interest me

You're an energy void
A black hole to avoid
No style
No heart
You don't even start

To interest me
Not even curiosity
It's not animosity
It's just you don't
Interest me

Outdoor miner

(Originally by wire; written by lewis/newman)

No blind spots in the leopard's eyes
Could ever hope to jeopardize
The lives of lambs
The shepherd cries

An afterlife for a silverfish
Eternal dust, less ticklish
Than a clean room
A houseguest's wish

(chorus)
He lies on his side
Is he trying to hide
In fact it's the earth
Which he's known since birth

Face worker, a serpentine miner
A roof falls, an underliner
Of leaf structure
The egg timer

White wood

(Desire lines EP)

Just hold my hand and stroke my hair
And ask them not to stand
And stare my mind is scattered everywhere
And all around i see despair my heart was broken long ago
I've come so far and sunk so low the truth's
A man without a soul i find him everywhere i go
All is fair in love they say liars liars i found only misery
Love is cruel i can close my eyes and see something better
Fairy tales and fantasy let me sleep let me dream
Just hold my hand and stroke my hair
And tell me everything's ok
I'm waiting for my millionaire just lie to me
And say he's there
They say the truth is beautiful
Liars liars what do they know of the truth anyway
I can close my eyes and see something better fairy tales
And fantasy that's the world for me

Girl's world

(Desire lines EP)

You can be someone but you can't be me
And I know that somehow i will never be free
Years ago in the darklands i was dressed like a toy
Now this doll has her own hands and she wishes you felt joy
When there might be another it makes you shiver in the cold
That is why i don't bother involving you in my world
Smashing glasses and breaking bases you lied to me
Over and over you never listened to me
There was too much affection you treated me as if i were clay
Home became like a prison in my mind i kept running away

Love at first sight

(Written by stuart moxham / Hypocrite EP)

I was waiting at the station,
When your train came in,
Wasn't you I was tiptoeing for,
But you gave me a grin,

Felt my heart in my throat,
Felt my soul going out to you,
Could this be love at first sight?
I just didn't know.

I was waiting at the station,
When your train came in,
Wasn't you I was tiptoeing for,
But you gave me a grin,

Felt my heart in my throat,
Felt my soul going out to you,
Could this be love at first sight?
I just didn't know.

I didn't know,
I didn't know,
I didn't know,
I didn't know.

Don't you feel insecure,
All about your love for me?
There's nothing I adore,
More than a fake ugly day.

Cat's chorus

(Hypocrite EP)

Drinking
Sitting in a corner smiling to the others
Arriving here we are again.
Talking
Telling all out stories laughing at the thins
That we've all been though over all the years
And as the hours pass 'til midnight
We'll sing together in the moonlight
And looking back to when we first met
We seemed so different so many years passed so much time
And we're still here whatever times may come don't ever change
Oh we'll be laughing in the moonlight singing songs 'til midnight bunny,
kate, & emma, maxine and melissa laughing in the moonlight.

Ex

Once upon a time I knew,
How to make you happy or make you blue,
Guess I'll be the same again,
But it's not that easy to just be friends.

Look at where we are today,
With our pointless efforts to lay the blame,
Maybe things can never work,
After so much betrayal and so much hurt.

We're in the same position,
But a million miles apart,
Maybe things will work eventually,
But I just don't know where to start.

When love has gone away,
Something takes its place,
Does it really have to be hate?

So what's it's gonna be?
It's up to you and me,
I just hope it isn't too late.

Things we say to..
.. all the pain,
All it does is get us nowhere,

Yes, maybe in the end,
We can be good friends,
I want to but it isn't easy.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.

So, love has been and gone,
How do we go on?
Is there something still worth saving?

Well, what's it gonna be?
We can wait and see,
Tell me do you think we'll make it?

Let's stop the silly games,
Dishing out the blame,
I know that you feel the same way,

This doesn't have to be,
Such a tragedy,
Everything will work out someday.

Well, maybe in the end,
We can just be friends,
I want to but isn't easy,
Yes, maybe in the end,
We will be good friends,
This is how it really should be.

Dear me

(Ladykillers EP)

Look at this page which I wrote yesterday
Just a selfish expression of beer and depression and
My insecurity so much a part of me
Swells up the pages of numerous diaries

Humiliations both real and imagined
All lie on this page and stare back at me mocking me
I run away from them push them away from
Soon and again they return to embarrass me.

........

Lie in my bed and stare up at the ceiling
We live in events of a previous evening
My poor little ego that bruises so easily
Fighting my conscience to justify reasons

Look in your soul tell me what do you see?
Can you honestly say you're completely at ease?
Do you believe that your conscience is clean?
Well I say you're a liar.


Carmen

(Ladykillers EP)

Carmen tells me what she's done,
Says she's having fun,
Wants to be a mum.

...
Sparkles all the while,
Life can be a trial.

Carmen said..
Don't cry now for yesterday,
Baby's gone but she's okay.

Carmen tells me where she's been,
Nightmares that she's seen,
Makes me want to scream.

Clever(?) things that she's been through,
Grey and black and blue,
Life can so cruel.

Sit down here and take a drink,
Tell me about everything,
Andy shrugs and then he winks again.

Chocolate box and photograph,
Life is hard and life is tough,
Carmen smiles and then she laughs again.

It's time we started heading home now,
I've made mistakes along the way,
It makes no sense but I'm okay now,
It's happened again,
I guess I'll live another day.

Sit down here and take a drink,
Tell me about everything,
Andy shrugs and then he winks again.

Chocolate box and photograph,
Life is hard and life is tough,
Carmen smiles and then she laughs again.

Plums and oranges

(Ladykillers EP)

It's a lonely day in this house
We are ?disecure? in this house
I'm so bored and Jaded
I'm so tired of feeling blue
It's a sober day in this house
I can't seem to flow in this house
This is where i'm staying
I just wanna be with you
Please believe me when I say all is right it seems
I've packed them all and thrown them away
You know I need you
from the inside to the outside

Please believe me when I say all is right it seems
It's a different day in this house
Plums and oranges in this house

? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
This is where I'm staying
This is where I want to be

I wanna be your girlfriend

(Ladykillers 7")

Sitting here so close together
So far we're just friends, but I'm wond'ring whether

I--am I just imagining
You--do you really have a thing for me
Like I think I see when I see you smile
And your smile's for me
I gotta tell you

CHORUS:
Hey! (hey!) You! (you!)
I wanna be your girlfriend
Trying to say I wanna be your number one
Hey! (hey!) You! (you!)
I wanna be your girlfriend
Gonna make you love me 'fore I'm done

Late at night when I--when I can't sleep
Picture in my mind I see you and me

I'll tell you what I wanna be
You to say that you're in love with me
You know feels so good in a dream
That I know in life we just got to be
I gotta tell you

Chorus

Gonna make you love me
Yeah, I'm gonna make you love me
Yeah, I'm gonna make you love me
From now on

Chorus

Hey! (hey!) You! (you!)
I wanna be your girlfriend
Hey! (hey!) You! (you!)
I wanna be your girlfriend
Hey! (hey!) You! (you!)
I wanna be your girlfriend
Gonna make you love me
Yeah, I'm gonna make you love me
Yeah, I'm gonna make you love me before I'm done

Tinkerbell

(Single girl EP)

Everybody knows a woman like me
Gender traitor of the highest degree
I see other women as the competition
I'm always nice to men
And so they're nice to me
But other girls always seem to be bitching about me
I guess they must be jealous
It's not my fault that men just can't resist loving me
Close my eyes and fantasize a world of men and only me
So much fun to be number one what good are sisters to me
I just can't relate to somebody unless i use my sexuality
So i never feel that confident when i talk to girls
Men are so much more approachable clever kind and intellectual
And i never feel uncomfortable in their company
Because i don't want their friendship just their jealousy

Outside world

(Single girl EP)

Lately, I don't feel quite as I should
Lately, I don't feel quite as I could
I've been tired, lonely, sick of all this talk
It's been heading downward since we left New York

Lately, I've been feeling really down
Sorry, but my mind's in London town
Is it me or are these hotels really bad
I want some decent TV not this endless act

Don't worry you're a long long way from home
People speak to me but I feel so alone
Whoa whoa whoa Whoa whoa whoa

Don't worry you're a long long way from home
People speak to me but I feel so alone
Can't you understand my body's changing fast
It's not up to me how long I'm going to last
Whoa whoa whoa Whoa whoa whoa

Pudding

(Single girl EP)

Who wants pudding?
And who wants honey?
And who wants bananas and cream?

Who wants processions
With various obsessions?
Which God will remove if you scream.

Nothing much has changed.

My body's a-creakin'
My mind keeps awakin'/a-weaknin',
My feet are all dirty and grey.
I live in my nightgown,
>From sun-up to sundown,
I'm watching my sweet tooth decay.

Nothing much has changed.

Lines, spots,
Join the dots,
Colour in Barbie and Ken,
Scab on your knee,
Biscuits for tea,
I live in my cupboard with friends, Ben(?)

Nothing much has changed.
Nothing much has changed.
Nothing much has changed.

Shut up

(Single girl EP)

I can't seem to find the time to ponder,
I only think when I go for a wander,
Life is too short,
I feel that I'm caught,
I can't go on feeling like this.

Close my mind to boring stuff that you say,
I'm cold and numb to things that you look my way,
It's gone on too long,
I have to be strong,
My interest is gone long ago.

I can't bear it when you start to moan,
'Cos night and day you're always on the phone,
I'm not fucked, my house is not my home,
Why can't you just leave me alone?

Life is too short,
I feel that I'm caught,
I can't go on feeling like this,

I can't bear it when you start to moan,
'Cos night and day you're always on the phone,
I'm not fucked, my house is not my home,
Why can't you just leave me alone?

I'd like to walk around in your mind

(500 EP)

I'd like to walk around in your mind someday,
I'd like to walk all over the things you say to me,
I'd like to run and jump on your solitude,
I'd like to rearrange your attitude to me.

You say you just want peace and you'd never hurt anyone,
You see the end before the beginning is even begun,
I would disturb your easy tranquility,
I'd turn away the sudden possibility of your smile.

I'd sit there humming the sound of the things I like about you,
I'd sing my songs and find out just what they mean to you,
But most of all I'd like you to be unaware,
And I'd just wander away trailing palm leaves behind me,
So you don't even know that I've been there.

Piledriver

(500 EP)

Is this the last time?
I don't know.
Feel so tired,
Patience wearing thin.

What to do?
Waters can run deep,
We used to have a good time,
Don't remember how.

Do you still want me?
Do you still want me?

.. sleep,
You were so much harder when you weren't so cheap.

Oh such a drag,
Oh such a bore,
Can I just be someone?
Can I be ignored?

Its..
you still want me?

Just one date,
Could be so red,
Just one time,
To .. and be straight.

Don't ask me..
....
....
....
Is this the last time?
I don't know.

Is this the last time?
I don't know.
We used to have a good time,
Don't remember how.
