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 Mocha


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
