All true

Your smoky reflection will tear up my mind A flick of your wrist and I trigger a mine Your cryptic desires leave me no wiser Your touch is a shot of my tranquilizer

I’m learning your code, re-learning to talk On dangerous grounds together we walk You’re stalking my dreams, tracing my shadow Take out my heart and I’ll hand you an arrow

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true all true all true

Pieces don’t fit Through your mazes I crawl Sink in your ocean defeated and small If you want me at all Once and for all I’ll be with you In endless relentless Free fall

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true

It’s you versus love And me versus you Can we make it all true all true all true


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)


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


Millions out there

When I die, there’ll be millions out there turning off their light Not because of my death but because it’ll be night There’ll be millions out there with a catch in their breath At the sight of the stars, not the news of my death

When I’m gone, there’ll be heartbreak and tears flowing on Just because such is life, not because I’ll be gone There’ll be millions out there wearing black for a while Not to mourn me but simply to try a new style

Like I’ve never existed, the world will go on Never pausing to notice the fact that I’m gone All the years measured out to me on this earth Swept away to make room for another one’s birth

When I die, there’ll be millions out there turning off their light Not because of my death but because it’ll be night There’ll be millions out there with a catch in their breath At the sight of the stars, not the news of my death there’ll be millions out there


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
