Lucy, Racquel and me

Candies for the ears

Leave it all behind


One day you catch a train, you take a window seat
the ground is swept away from underneath your feet.
There’s nothing on your mind, and nothing in your hands,
you leave it all behind, your universe expands

Beyond the railway tracks, beyond the Milky Way
your destination waits.
No need to say goodbye, no need to make amends
Your heart is free to fly, your heart is on the mend

You leave it all behind (x4)

You watch the sun go down, you watch the sun come up,
Your days and nights, they drown inside your coffee cup.
Along deserted streets where no one climbs aboard,
you see the million dreams that you could not afford

You leave it all behind (x4)

You leave it all behind
Their fading silhouettes
You leave it all behind
Graffiti on your mind
You leave it all behind
You leave it all behind

I am


I’m a foreign word you don’t feel like learning
I’m a thought that escapes you without forming
I’m a stranger you pass in the street, not turning
Someone nameless, homeless, in need of warming

I’m a caption you cut from a silent movie
A forgotten track that you don’t mind skipping

I am (x2)

I’m a beggar staring down unmoving
In a memory you’ve got no room for keeping
I’m a cry for help but you don’t hear me calling
I’m a snowflake you never notice falling

I am (x3)

I’m a quiet child you go on ignoring
Once a year receiving your thoughtless presents
On your map I’m a place not worth exploring
I’m a dream locked up in your sleeping presence

I am (x2)

I’m a magic spell that you won’t be learning
I’m a saving prayer you won’t be hearing
I’m an angel who’ll pass over you, not turning
Someone glowing, beautiful and unfearing.

I am (x4)

What will I say ?


You If you say love is never meant to last
If you say love is something from the past
If you say it’s a game we like to play
If you say oooh what if you say ?

You If you say there’s no reason to pretend
If you say just move on when your love ends
If you say see how fast it fades away
If you say oooh what if you say ?

I I will say this is really nothing new
I will say I’ll be fine when we are through
I will say choose your time to walk away
I will say ooh what will I say ?

You if you say it’s a deal that we all make
If you say it’s a promise we all break
If you say holding on is not the way
If you say oooh what if you say ?

I I will say this is just the way I feel
I will say I’ll survive, I’m quick to heal
I will say nice to be with you but hey
I will say ooh what will I say ?

what will I say hey?
what will I say ?
what will I say hey ?
what will I say hey?
what will I say ?
what will I say hey ?

he loves me yeah yeah yeah
he loves me yeah yeah yeah
he loves me yeah yeah yeah
he loves me yeah yeah yeah

Until


I'm running on empty without you around
I'm down on the floor, I'm counting out loud
I'm adding us up but getting it wrong
one-sided equation taking too long

I'm down on the floor and I'm not all right
I'm feeling crushed by the weight of the night
so much to regret, confess on the spot
mistakes taken out by a sniper's shot

until i hear your key in the door
I'll be down on the floor
until i feel your hands on my face
I'll be so out of place

I'm throwing away all the useless junk
I'm swimming back to the ship I have sunk
so much to set right, don't know where to start
don’t know how to get back
back into your heart

until i hear your key in the door
I'll be down on the floor
until i feel your hands on my face
I'll be so out of place

A change of scene, on the edge of the world
Unwanted memories buried and burned
Still on the floor but warm in the sun
Adding us up, a neat little sum

until i hear your key in the door
I'll be down on the floor
until i feel your hands on my face
I'll be so
I'll be so
I'll be so out of place

Mocha


You’re such an awesome mix, the best of nature’s tricks
The best genetic pool-- oo oo
You rule

A hot exotic drink, not a single missing link
Where others stand in line--
You shine

Sometimes the clouds won’t scatter
Don’t ever let it matter

Never go undercover, never hide in your locker
Never change your true colour
Mocha
(x2)

Ignore the sticks and stones, this world is not for clones
So make your every streak--
Unique

Sometimes the going gets tougher
Don’t ever blend in and suffer

Never go undercover, never hide in your locker
Never change your true colour
Mocha
(x2)

A bit of everything, not a single boring thing
Where others fade so fast--
You last

Nothing you need to fix, already such a cool mix
Already top notch design oo oo
So shine

Sometimes the clouds won’t scatter
Don’t ever let it matter

Never go undercover, never hide in your locker
Never change your true colour
Mocha
(x3)

Never go undercover, Never hide in your locker
Never change your true colour
Never change your true colour
Never change your true colour

Lana Del Rey


The air in your bedroom is soaked in regret
You’re trying to stretch your last cigarette
The night keeps on swinging from black to grey
And you’re losing yourself in Lana Del Rey

Her voice is drowning the rain outside
Your bed is so cold on the other side
There’s nothing left for you but to pray
To the heartbreak world of Lana Del Rey

You’re feeling bewitched
You’re coming unstitched
To the sound of her songs
That you keep on replay
to dododo
oh Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey

The sun never rises, the moon never sets
You’re barely surviving without cigarettes
You’re getting addicted to being astray
In the heartbreak world of Lana Del Rey

You’re feeling derailed
Reality frayed
To the sound of her songs
That you keep on replay
to dododo
oh Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey

She's a knife in your heart, she’s twisting in deep
But you welcome the pain and the end of your sleep
The sadness of summers, the torment of springs
You were born to die every time that she sings
that she sings

She’s all that you have and you’ll never betray
The wounded eyes of Lana Del Rey
No bright blue sky and no ocean spray
In the world that you share with Lana Del Rey

tododo todododo
to do do do do do do
Ô the sound of her songs
That you keep on replay
to dododo
oh Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey

Fugitive words


In my books there are gardens of heartbreak and loss
Where I walk under bridges covered in moss
I would read them to you but I can’t find the words
To explain what they mean, the books in my world

In my streets you will find no footprints or signs
You can wander for miles, not a soul in sight
I would show you the way but I can’t find the words
To explain where they lead, the streets in my world

Out of my reach, like scared little birds
Flying away from my strange little world
Got to let them escape, got to leave them unheard
My beautiful fugitive words

In my dreams I’m adrift on a slow, slow tide
I’m alone with the wind and the silence of time
I would tell you the truth but I can’t find the words
To explain why I feel so alone in my world

Out of my reach, like scared little birds
Flying away from my strange little world
Got to let them escape, got to leave them unheard
My beautiful fugitive words

You could be in my books, in my streets
Next to me on the tide in my dreams
But I can’t let you in, can’t let anyone hurt
My beautiful fugitive words
No I can’t let you in, can’t let anyone hurt
My beautiful fugitive words

Bird's eye view


Step on the cracks and the world goes under
You cry in your sleep, too tired to wonder
Whatever happened to peace and love
And the promised help from above

Craving silence, surrounded by whispers
The middle of summer like the coldest of winters
Whatever you do, it’s a hit and miss
so what about something like this

Lift your head, you’re one of the chosen few
See it all instead, from a bird’s eye view
a bird’s eye view

A choice made for you, you can just uncheck it
If it’s all black or white, you can make it chequered
Whatever your call, it’s for no one to miss
so what about something like this

Lift your head, you’re one of the chosen few
See it all instead, from a bird’s eye view
a bird’s eye view

See it all instead, the world’s bright blue from a bird’s eye view
a bird’s eye view

One a day like this


On a day like this
There is love and sunlight spilling over
On a day like this
We are timeless, never growing older

Fingers intertwined, quiet magic
Look into my eyes and imagine

There’ll be you and me
And a bright blue sky never fading
There’ll be you and me
And a happiness that's never failing

Little things sometimes taking over
Keep your hand in mine pull me closer

Love's a special place where the music plays
Endlessly for you and me
Love's a simple phrase time will not erase
You and me endlessly

On a day like this
No more loneliness and no more searching

Through the open door light is flowing
Days like this and more we are glowing

Love's a special place where the music plays
Endlessly for you and me
Love's a simple phrase time will not erase
You and me endlessly

We’re a special place where the music plays
Endlessly for you and me
We’re a simple phrase time will not erase
You and me endlessly
