Pourquoi pas

Pourquoi pas,
se prêter au jeu de la vérité,
pour une fois.
Se montrer tel qu'on est,
ne pas avoir peur de soi.
Être sûr qu'on va y gagner,
à ne pas tricher.
Comme si ça pouvait suffire à nous aimer.
 
Pourquoi pas,
ne plus chercher pour qui, pourquoi,
on fait don de soi.
Reconnaître que la vie est plus forte chaque fois.
Recompter toutes ses erreurs,
comme on fait les cent pas sur le quai du hasard,
pour un train qui ne vient pas.
S'accrocher à ces instants, qui ne peuvent pas tricher.
Comme si ça pouvait suffire à nous aimer.
 
Et pourquoi pas,
se contenter d'exister,
d'être simplement là.
Les bras grands ouverts
comme ces fenêtres qui ne ferment pas
pour que le soleil pénètre,
même s'il ne chauffe pas.
Laisser au vestiaire cette amertume
qui ne meurt pas
Attendre, et attendre encore,
attendre je ne sais quoi.
Comme si ça pouvait suffire à nous aimer.
 
Personne ne t'aimera jamais plus fort que moi.
Se contenter d'exister d'être simplement là.
Les bras grands ouverts
comme ces fenêtres qui ne ferment pas,
pour que le soleil pénètre,
même s'il ne chauffe pas.
Laisser au vestiaire,
cette amertume qui ne meurt pas.
Attendre, et attendre encore,
attendre je ne sais quoi.
Comme si ça pouvait suffire à nous aimer
 
Mais y croire toujours plus fort,
seulement parce que c'est toi.
S'accrocher à ces instants,
qui ne peuvent pas tricher.
Comme si ça pouvait suffire à nous aimer
 
À nous aimer

[Verse 1: Peter Gabriel]
Hans spielt mit Lotte, Lotte spielt mit Jane
Jane spielt mit Willi, Willi ist wieder froh
Suki spielt mit Leo, Sacha spielt mit Britt
Adolf zündet Bücher an, Enrico macht auch mit
 
[Pre-Chorus: Peter Gabriel]
Krieg uns, besieg uns, wir jagen durch das Seegras
Krieg uns, besieg uns, piss auf die Fratzen Im Dschungel
Bis zum knockout
 
[Chorus: Peter Gabriel]
Könnten Blicke töten, wärt ihr flöten
Krieg muss man schwänzen, Spiel ohne Grenzen
Könnten Blicke töten, wärt ihr flöten
Krieg muss man schwänzen, Spiel ohne Grenzen
Krieg muss man schwänzen, Spiel ohne Grenzen

[Verse 2: Peter Gabriel]
Andre hat 'ne rote Fahne, die von Chiang ist blau
Jeder hat 'nen Fahnenmast, nur nicht Lin-Tai-Pau
Wir ziehen uns Kostüme an und spielen ganz verrückt
Ich versteck mich hoch im Baum: 'ihr seid abgefickt!'

L'amour brille sous les étoiles [Can You Feel the Love Tonight]

C'est terrible, c'est affreux.
Hein ? Quoi?
Et ils se moquent de tout.
Mais qui?
L'amour s'amène et nous pauvres pouilleux,
ils nous jettent tous les deux.
Où?
Sous les diamants des étoiles,
quel magique univers.
Mais dans cette romantique atmosphère,
Ça sent mauvais dans l'air.
 
L'amour brille sous les étoiles,
d'une étrange lumière.
La terre entière
en parfaite harmonie,
vit un moment royal.
 
Je voudrais lui dire je t'aime.
Mais comment lui avouer
mon secret, mes problèmes ?
C'est Impossible,
Elle serait trop blessée.
 
Quel lourd secret cache-t-il
Derrière tant de rancœur ?
Moi je sais qu'il est ce roi en exil
qui règne dans mon cœur.
 
L'amour brille sous les étoiles,
d'une étrange lumière.
La terre entière
en parfaite harmonie,
vit sa plus belle histoire.
 
L'amour brille sous les étoiles,
illuminant les cœurs.
Sa lumière éclaire à l'infini
un sublime espoir.
 
S'ils s'enfuient vers
leur rêve ce soir,
dans leur folle ronde.
Si notre ami nous dit au revoir,
nous serons seuls au monde.
 

Un jour ou l’autre

Quand je n'aurais plus peur d'être seul chez moi
Quand j'en aurais fini de courir après moi
De me perdre dans ma vie
 
Quand le matin j'aurais confiance en moi
Et que mes doutes auront disparus au-delà
De mes rêves et de mes envies
 
[Refrain:]
On se retrouvera avec dix ans de plus
Le cœur battant, la tête haute
On se retrouvera ici mais pas battus
Lavés des coups et de nos fautes
Un jour ou l'autre
 
Quand j'aurais trouvé où je suis chez moi,
mes souvenirs d'ici tueront ceux de là-bas
Une terre pour passer ma vie
 
[Refrain:]
On se retrouvera avec dix ans de plus
Le cœur battant, la tête haute
On se retrouvera ici mais pas battus
Lavés des coups et de nos fautes
Un jour ou l'autre
 
On ne change pas, on ne change plus
On se convainc qu'on est un autre
On ne rêve pas, on ne rêve plus
Que demain on se rencontre
Un jour ou l'autre
 

Au Reichstag

On m'affirmait :
' Partout où les cités de vapeurs s'enveloppent,
Où l'homme dans l'effort s'exalte et se complaît,
Bat le coeur fraternel d'une plus haute Europe.
 
De la Sambre à la Ruhr, de la Ruhr à l'Oural,
Et d'Allemagne en France et de France en Espagne
L'ample entente disperse un grand souffle auroral
Qui va de ville en plaine et de plaine en montagne.
 
Ici le charbon fume et là-bas l'acier bout,
Le travail y est sombre et la peine y est rude,
Mais des tribuns sont là dont le torse est debout
Et dont le verbe éclaire au front les multitudes.
 
Aux soirs d'émeute brusque et de battant tocsin,
Quand se forme et grandit la révolte brutale,
Pour qu'en soient imposés les voeux et les desseins
Leurs gestes fulguraux domptent les capitales.
 
Ils maîtrisent les Parlements astucieux
Grâce à leur force franche, ardente et réfractaire,
Ils ont le peuple immense et rouge derrière eux
Et leur grondant pouvoir est fait de son tonnerre.
 
Leurs noms sont lumineux de pays en pays ;
Dans les foyers où l'homme et la femme travaillent,
Où la fille est la servante des plus petits,
Leur image à deux sous s'épingle à la muraille.
 
On les aime : ne sont-ils point simples et droits,
Avec la pitié grande en leur âme profonde ?
Et quand s'étend en sa totale ampleur leur voix,
Ne couvre-t-elle point de sa force le monde ? '
 
Et l'on disait encore :
' Eux seuls tissent les rets où sera pris le sort.
Qu'un roi hérisse un jour de ses armes la terre,
Leur ligue contre lui arrêtera la guerre. '
 
Ainsi
S'abolissait l'effroi, le trouble et le souci
Et s'exaltait la foi dans la concorde ardente.
La paix régnait déjà, normale et évidente
Comme un déroulement de jours, de mois et d'ans.
On se sentait heureux de vivre en un tel temps
Où tout semblait meilleur au monde,
où les génies juraient de le doter d'une neuve harmonie,
Où l'homme allait vers l'homme et cherchait dans ses yeux
On ne sait quoi de grand qui l'égalait aux Dieux,
Quand se fendit soudain, en quelle heure angoissée !
Cette tour où le rêve étageait la pensée,
 
Ce fut en août, là-bas, au Reichstag, à Berlin,
Que ceux en qui le monde avait mis sa foi folle
Se turent quand sonna la mauvaise parole.
Un nuage passa sur le front du destin.
 
Eux qui l'avaient proscrite, accueillirent la guerre.
La vieille mort casquée, atroce, autoritaire,
Sortit de sa caserne avec son linceul blanc,
Pour en traîner l'horreur sur les pays sanglants.
Son ombre s'allongea sur les villes en flammes,
Le monde se fit honte et tua la grande âme
Qu'il se faisait avec ferveur pour qu'elle soit
Un jour l'âme du Droit
Devant l'audace inique et la force funeste.
Aux ennemis dont tue et ravage le geste,
Il fallut opposer un coeur qui les déteste ;
On s'acharna ensemble à se haïr soudain,
Le clair passé glissa au ténébreux demain,
Tout se troublait et ne fut plus, en somme,
Que fureur répandue et que rage dardée ;
Au fond des bourgs et des campagnes
On prenait peur d'être un vivant,
Car c'est là ton crime immense, Allemagne,
 
D'avoir tué atrocement l'idée
Que se faisait pendant la paix,
En notre temps, l'homme de l'homme.
 

L'arbre

Tout seul,
Que le berce l'été, que l'agite l'hiver,
Que son tronc soit givré ou son branchage vert,
Toujours, au long des jours de tendresse ou de haine,
Il impose sa vie énorme et souveraine
Aux plaines.
 
Il voit les mêmes champs depuis cent et cent ans
Et les mêmes labours et les mêmes semailles ;
Les yeux aujourd'hui morts, les yeux
Des aïeules et des aïeux
Ont regardé, maille après maille,
Se nouer son écorce et ses rudes rameaux.
Il présidait tranquille et fort à leurs travaux ;
Son pied velu leur ménageait un lit de mousse ;
Il abritait leur sieste à l'heure de midi
Et son ombre fut douce
A ceux de leurs enfants qui s'aimèrent jadis.
 
Dès le matin, dans les villages,
D'après qu'il chante ou pleure, on augure du temps ;
Il est dans le secret des violents nuages
Et du soleil qui boude aux horizons latents ;
Il est tout le passé debout sur les champs tristes,
Mais quels que soient les souvenirs
Qui, dans son bois, persistent,
Dès que janvier vient de finir
Et que la sève, en son vieux tronc, s'épanche,
Avec tous ses bourgeons, avec toutes ses branches,
- Lèvres folles et bras tordus -
Il jette un cri immensément tendu
Vers l'avenir.
 
Alors, avec des rais de pluie et de lumière,
Il frôle les bourgeons de ses feuilles premières,
Il contracte ses noeuds, il lisse ses rameaux ;
Il assaille le ciel, d'un front toujours plus haut ;
Il projette si loin ses poreuses racines
Qu'il épuise la mare et les terres voisines
Et que parfois il s'arrête, comme étonné
De son travail muet, profond et acharné.
 
Mais pour s'épanouir et régner dans sa force,
Ô les luttes qu'il lui fallut subir, l'hiver !
Glaives du vent à travers son écorce.
Cris d'ouragan, rages de l'air,
Givres pareils à quelque âpre limaille,
Toute la haine et toute la bataille,
Et les grêles de l'Est et les neiges du Nord,
Et le gel morne et blanc dont la dent mord,
jusqu'à l'aubier, l'ample écheveau des fibres,
Tout lui fut mal qui tord, douleur qui vibre,
Sans que jamais pourtant
Un seul instant
Se ralentît son énergie
A fermement vouloir que sa vie élargie
Fût plus belle, à chaque printemps.
 
En octobre, quand l'or triomphe en son feuillage,
Mes pas larges encore, quoique lourds et lassés,
Souvent ont dirigé leur long pèlerinage
Vers cet arbre d'automne et de vent traversé.
Comme un géant brasier de feuilles et de flammes,
Il se dressait, superbement, sous le ciel bleu,
Il semblait habité par un million d'âmes
Qui doucement chantaient en son branchage creux.
J'allais vers lui les yeux emplis par la lumière,
Je le touchais, avec mes doigts, avec mes mains,
Je le sentais bouger jusqu'au fond de la terre
D'après un mouvement énorme et surhumain ;
Et J'appuyais sur lui ma poitrine brutale,
Avec un tel amour, une telle ferveur,
Que son rythme profond et sa force totale
Passaient en moi et pénétraient jusqu'à mon coeur.
 
Alors, j'étais mêlé à sa belle vie ample ;
Je me sentais puissant comme un de ses rameaux ;
Il se plantait, dans la splendeur, comme un exemple ;
J'aimais plus ardemment le sol, les bois, les eaux,
La plaine immense et nue où les nuages passent ;
J'étais armé de fermeté contre le sort,
Mes bras auraient voulu tenir en eux l'espace ;
 
Mes muscles et mes nerfs rendaient léger mon corps
Et je criais : ' La force est sainte.
Il faut que l'homme imprime son empreinte
Tranquillement, sur ses desseins hardis :
Elle est celle qui tient les clefs des paradis
Et dont le large poing en fait tourner les portes '.
Et je baisais le tronc noueux, éperdument,
Et quand le soir se détachait du firmament,
je me perdais, dans la campagne morte,
Marchant droit devant moi, vers n'importe où,
Avec des cris jaillis du fond de mon coeur fou.
 

Ça fly away

Ces derniers temps pléthore de Poppies
Se drapent dans l'Hindi bafouillent une bouillie d'anglais
C'est pas leur langue mais tant pis,
Tant qu'à dire des conneries,
autant qu'elles visent à l'universel
Ils argumentent export comme si l'Angleterre avait besoin d'eux
Ils ont l'audace de croire que face aux Britons ils pourraient faire mieux
 
Et ça fly away comme un niais
Et ça want to go like a blaireau
Et le pire c'est qu'nous ça nous plaît
vu qu'on a l'niveau d'anglais d'un 5e techno
Et ça want to die dans la paille
Et ça time o'clock ça la joue folk
Et le pire c'est qu'nous ça nous branche
vu qu'on parle Outre-Manche un peu comme des manchots
 
Et si demain je changeais d'avis,
j'me mettais moi aussi à chanter one again
Est-ce que soudain la hype et la nuit et les Anglofolies
salueraient mes rengaines
Les grenouilles anglophones se produisent à Brighton
devant trois nez d'bœufs
Et de retour en Dordogne, affirment aux autochtones
C'était fabuleux
 
Et ça fly away comme un nias
Et ça want to go like a blaireau
Et le pire c'est qu'nous ça nous plaît
vu qu'on a l'niveau d'anglais d'un 5e techno
Et ça want to die dans la paille
Et ça time o'clock ça la joue folk
Et le pire c'est qu'nous ça nous branche
vu qu'on parle Outre-Manche un peu comme des manchots
 
Ils mentent comme ils Shakespeare
Quand ils disent n'avoir grandi qu'en écoutant Bowie
Ils mentent comme ils Shakespeare
Se la jouent j'ail lu Beckett
Et désavouent Johnny
Mais parlent comme des biquettes
La langue de la BBC
 
Et ça fly away comme un nias
Et ça want to go like a blaireau
Et le pire c'est qu'nous ça nous plaît
vu qu'on a l'niveau d'anglais d'un 5e techno
Et ça want to die dans la paille
Et ça time o'clock ça la joue folk
Et le pire c'est qu'nous ça nous botte
vu qu'on aime bien Sherlock
Mais traduit en français
 

Je voudrais déjà être roi [I Just Can't Wait To Be King]

Simba : C'est moi Simba, c'est moi le roi
Du royaume animal
Zazu : C'est la première fois qu'on voit un roi
Avec si peu de poils
Simba : Je vais faire dans la cour des grands
Une entrée triomphale
En poussant très royalement un rugissement bestial
Zazu : Majesté, tu ne te mouches pas du coude
Simba : Je voudrais déjà être roi !
Zazu : Il y a encore un long chemin à faire, votre altesse, je vous le dis
 
Simba : Au roi on ne dit pas
Zazu : D'ailleurs quand je dis ça, je ...
Nala : Tiens ta langue et tais-toi
Zazu : Ce que je veux dire...
Simba : Surtout ne fais pas ça
Simba et Nala : Restes ici, assieds-toi
Zazu : Restez ici !
 
Simba : Sans jamais dire où je vais
Zazu : Alors là c'est inadmissible
Simba : Je veux faire ce qui me plaît
 
Zazu : Il est grand temps, votre grandeur
Qu'on parle de cœur à cœur
Nala: Le roi n'a que faire des conseils
D'une vieille corneille
Zazu : Si tu confonds la monarchie avec la tyrannie
Vive la république, adieu l'Afrique
Je ferme la boutique
Prends garde Lion, ne te trompe pas de voie
Simba : Je voudrais déjà être roi
 
Regardez bien à l'ouest
Nala : Regardez bien à l'est
Simba : Mon pouvoir sans conteste
Simba et Nala : Est sans frontières
Zazu : Pas encore
 
Simba et Nala : C'est une rumeur qui monte jusqu'au ciel
Les animaux répandent la nouvelle
Simba sera le nouveau Roi Soleil
 
Simba : Je voudrais déjà être roi
Nala : Il voudrais déjà être roi
Simba : Je voudrais déjà
Nala : Il voudrais déjà
Simba et Nala : Être roi
 

Dors mon amour

Dors, mon amour
Le soleil est encore loin du jour
Nous avons pour aimer tout le temps
Et la nuit nous comprend
 
Dors, mon amour
Protégé par mes bras qui entourent
Ton sommeil d'un rideau de bonheur
Dors au creux de mon cœur
 
Tu es un roi
Qui tient tout son royaume en ses doigts
Et qui tremble de voir
S'écrouler ce royaume enchanté
 
Dors, mon amour
Je suis là, prêt à toi pour toujours
Pour vieller tout au bout
De tes nuites sur ta vie en dormir
 
Je suis ton âme
Pas à pas sur son chemin de joie
Et je m'amuse
À me pencher sur ton sommeil étoilé
 
J'entends la voix
De ta vie qui bat tout près de moi
Et je sens comme un souffle très doux
Qui caresse ma joue
 
Dors, mon amour
Je suis là, prêt à toi pour toujours
Mais voici le sourire du matin
Voici le soleil de demain
Le gros soleil de l'amour et de nous
 

Sea of Tranquility

I live in the light of the bright silver moon
I'll take you off sailing from midnight till noon
I'll show the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen see
I live in the shade of a forest of green
In the wildest of woodlands that you've ever seen
There's rabbits and quail and tender young snails
As brown as the seaweed on old rusty nails
 
There's fireflies dancing in the cool evening breeze
There's love and romancin' as nice as you please
There's otters and frogs and spotted ground hogs
And wiley old weasels in rotted out logs
 
There's rivers of rainbow and grey mountain trout
And little dark holes where the varmints hang out
There's foxes and hares in traps and in snares
And lots of bald eagles so you'd better take care
 
So if you've got the time and you'd like to pass by
Come down around midnight and give us a try
We'll show you the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen to see
 

On the High Seas

Was it someone she met that's so hard to forget
Was it some kind of an ocean of changes
I don't remember where she said she would be
And since I don't know, let me guess
Was it somewhere in Michigan or the Lake of the Woods
Up in old Montreal or Toronto the good
Somewhere in Reno or somewhere in Rome
And when all is said and done
Will she leave me alone
 
I don't want to get so low
And as for my sadness, it comes and it goes
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas
 
Was it up in Hornpayne where the trains run on time
Was she drinking champagne when she made up her mind
North of the border or down in South Bend
And when all is said and done
Is there no rainbow's end
 
I don't want to own the key
To some ghostly mansion where souls are set free
I don't remember where she said she would go
Straight for the highway or down the low road
I don't remember where she said she would be
Back in the city or on the high seas
 

Friday Night

The work has been done
And the boss is gone
Baby, I'm on my way to you
Friday night
 
I missed your embrace
Seven lonely days
There are so many kisses due
Friday night
 
The week has been long
But our love is strong
And tonight we will start a new
Friday night
 
The taste of the wine
Will be so divine
When I'm sharin' my glass with you
Friday night
 
Since Friday night
I've been so lonely
Tell me why
You kiss me only
Only Friday night
 
The more I kiss you
Friday night
The more I miss you
Every night
My love's too big for
Only Friday night
 
The work has been done
And the boss is gone
Baby, I'm on my way to you
Friday night
 
I missed your embrace
Seven lonely days
There are so many kisses due
Friday night
 

To Scarborough

Wanted to see what there is to say,
Is there anything you said that's true?
I wanted to believe in you.
Like you want in me too.
 
And tell me can there be a way?
Or are we just two broken hearts?
With a destiny to crash and burn.
Is there anything more I can, learn?
 
Well it's never easy,
Is being free,
To release your heart then relax your mind,
Don't say those words, n'
Don't make me hurt, well
Please don't kill me,
Not one more time.
 
And so then can you tell me why?
What am I still doing here?
Iv died inside now, no more tears.
Go on and have another beer.
 
Well it's never easy,
Is being free,
To release your heart then relax your mind,
Don't say those words, n'
Don't make me hurt, well
Please don't kill me,
Not one more time.
 

Whisper My Name

Into a land of notions
Through the ruins of yesteryear
Set yer mind in motion
Be beside me win or lose
I will no forsake thee

Whisper my name as you pass through my life
Whisper my name when you fall

Now will you go with me
 

Stroke

You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke your ego
Beg for it
Die for it mmm
I got the touch placebo
Nothing that you wouldn't do
Lie to get back in my room
'Cause that's what narcissists do
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke
 
Say it's hard to breathe inside my ocean
I give you the deep but your still floating
You would let me drown to save your own life
Don't think I can't see your soul is soaking
 
It's always in my head
Everything is always about you
You tell me you're a book that I misread
You just wanna tell me what to do
 
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke your ego
Beg for it
Die for it mmm
I got the touch placebo
Nothing that you wouldn't do
Lie to get back in my room
'Cause that's what narcissists do
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke
 
Gather all your money make a symphony
I looked it over and the thing got steeper
And even though you wanted me sweet you could call me savory
You're treading water and the thing got deeper
 
It's always in my head
Everything is always about you
(You used to get it on the low)
You tell me you're a book that I misread
(You always said I was your type)
(You said you got it down below)
You just wanna tell me what to do
(You wanna give it to me right)
 
Tell me you're so good at it
Good at it
You say you don't wanna quit
And you
You say you won't run out of love
Out of love
Say you got enough of it for two
I'm ended up
You been invited
You been telling me - now I'm afraid
You running up to the table invited
You want a taste of my own lemonade
 
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke your ego
Beg for it
Die for it mmm
I got the touch placebo
Nothing that you wouldn't do
Lie to get back in my room
'Cause that's what narcissists do
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke
 

Godless

Fell into the darkness
Did you feel a lost divine?
'Cause I felt the power when
I lay down at your side
I felt the rhythm
I felt the fever in your mind
I couldn't save you but
At least I say I tried
 
If your love was ever mine
It will stay with me tonight
I'm praying, praying
You can see it in my eyes
There's a reason, still reminds me
I'm waiting, waiting
 
You don't believe in one divide
But can you tell me you'll believe in mine?
'Cause you've been my God, my God
And when you're gone, I'm godless, I'm godless
You don't believe in love
But can you say that you've been thinking of us?
'Cause you've been my God, my God
And when you're gone, I'm godless, I'm godless
 
Swallow my fable
Little is not enough
Though with my eyes closed
I'm still dancing in your love
Inside I'm dreaming
I'll be alone with you again
And I can still hold you like
I held you in the end
 
You don't believe in one divide
But can you tell me you'll believe in mine?
'Cause you've been my God, my God
And when you're gone, I'm godless, I'm godless
You don't believe in love
But can you say that you've been thinking of us?
'Cause you've been my God, my God
And when you're gone, I'm godless, I'm godless
 
If your love was ever mine
It will stay with me tonight
I'm praying, praying
You can see it in my eyes
There's a reason, still reminds me
I'm waiting, waiting
 

Sawzall

I go over every word you said to me
Every single syllable I could repeat
Certified to scuba dive in my memory
 
Why didn't you tell me how you felt that day?
How was I supposed to know?
I can't mind read
How was I supposed to see
It was underneath
 
Caught you singing from the ceiling
I thought that meant you were healing
Looking back I see the meaning
I didn't notice the teething
Why didn't you say you need me?
Why don't you say what you mean?
 
I told you I'm sorry
I know you are
 
Shoulda read into you drifting from your friends
But you were the apple of both of my eyes
So I couldn't see the signs
Baby I was blind
 
Miss being self-conscious why you laughed at me
Said it was embarrassing but secretly
It made me feel special when I saw you smile cause of me
 
Caught you singing from the ceiling
I thought that meant you were healing
Looking back I see the meaning wish I asked more
I didn't notice the teething
Why didn't you say you need me?
Why don't you say what you mean!?
I told you I'm sorry
 
I donate my love
I donate my
I do
I donate my love
 
I gave you nothing
I understand
I understand
I gave you nothing
 

Look What You're Doing To Me

Why don't you tell me you love me too?
Why did you sell me on that thing you do?
Why every single December I'm waiting on you?
Why you just looking me over?
 
Giving me why's
Keep giving me why's, no
Tell you enough
Then you give me one more
Heavenly eyes, I'm dying for
Why you just looking me over?
 
Look what you're doing to me (I don't mind)
Look what you're doing to me

If you leave you'll be sorry
 
Giving me eyes

Oh, I'm losing my world
Why you just looking me over?

Hawaiian Mazes

I wanna meet tomorrow
Yesterday made me a fool today
I tried my best to follow
But you moving too fast on ya daddy long legs
 
You say I'm destined to live in stories
I can't let go 2008
You say my nostalgia grows when I don't even know
That the way you're proposing to say my name
 
I gotta let you go
I'm letting you know
I gotta let you go
Baby now I know
 
You think about our ending
I think about when I met you though
Dad says I'm just pretending
Said that I'm just scared that I'll end up alone
 
I walked around the Hawaiian mazes
I didn't care I forgot my bra
'Cause the dragon teeth ain't worried
About letting go of the tightness I hold on the rope like a soldier
 
I gotta let you go
I'm letting you know
I gotta let you go
Baby now I know
 
I make myself believe that I can go
'Cause we been up and over then below
For heaven sake
Would you leave
Shut the door
Let me go
Let you know why
 
It's gonna take a minute to unfold
The way that I've been feelings overtold
Telling me why you left and then complain you're alone and I don't know why
But babe it was something bout the way you loved me
 
Now I don't know
Now I don't know me anymore
I'm letting go
And you don't have to tell me twice
And you should know
I never needed your advice
I shoulda known back then
Now I know it's right
 
I gotta let you go
I gotta let you go
I gotta let you go
I gotta let you go
 

Alaska

Used to call it nothing
And then you turned it into something
You were a petal I could pluck then
 
Maybe we should touch or something
I promise I won't fall in love then
You could put me in your pocket
Wouldn't you like that?
 
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy don't go
I found a letter from your friend he said you're gone
He said you were going to the mountain with the most snow so long
 
Told me you were headed for Alaska
I thought I dreamt it but I know it now it's on
Instead of writing letters Jimmy could've had my heart to lean on
 
Fake! You dedicate me nothing!
You couldn't say it we were something!
You got me all huffin' and puffin'
Maybe we should kiss or something
I promise I won't fall in love then
You could put me in your pocket
Wouldn't you like that?
 
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy don't go
I found a letter from your friend he said you're gone
He said you were going to the mountain with the most snow so long
 
Told me you were headed for Alaska
I thought I dreamt it but I know it now it's on
Instead of writing letters Jimmy could've had my heart to lean on
 
Call me to tell me something that you want from me
And I give in in the beginning when you ask for me
And the buzz that I know I get it when you're sweet to me
I don't know why I'm going took the map from me
And I know that I want to feed him 'cause he's so hungry
You could put me in your pocket
Wouldn't you like that?
 
And now I'm saying
 
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy don't go
I found a letter from your friend he said you're gone
He said you were going to the mountain with the most snow so long
 
Told me you were headed for Alaska
I thought I dreamt it but I know it now it's on
Instead of writing letters Jimmy could've had my heart to lean on
 
You shoulda told me
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy don't go
Say you're my only
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy don't go
You should've told me told me told me told me
Told me you were heading to Alaska
Baby you coulda warned me
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy don't go
And baby you could've told me
Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy Jimmy don't go
Jimmy you could've told me told me told me told me
 

Propaganda

You thought you found what you wanted in the propaganda
Too many pieces to mop up, I told you this was a mistake
It's undecided, but I got to know
We been divided, but I told you so
You must have been born reciting
The most poetic ride or die death wish
 
But we could be different
The ways I would give in
It's something about it
I'm weaker without it
 
I think it's something about you
 
It's something bout this situation
The windows don't make sounds and I'm all fucked up
I can't save myself
Mama I need help
I think I made some bad decisions
The guns abound in my love and I'm all fucked up
I can't save myself
Mama I need help
 
Tell me tell me that it's over
And tell me that you're strong enough
Look at the mirror at my messy hair
I'm addicted to this bleed on love
I wanna be understanding but
Baby we gonna fuck this whole thing up
I suck aside I decided that suicide is on my side
 
But we could be different
The ways I would give in
There's something about it
I'm weaker without it
 
I think it's something about you
 
It's something bout this situation
The windows don't make sounds
And I'm all fucked up
I can't save myself
Mama I need help
Think I made some bad decisions
Guns abound in my love and I'm all fucked up
I can't save myself
Mama I need help
 
I know you call me pretty baby
I thought you'd be the one to save me baby
I know you call me pretty baby
I thought you'd be the one to save me baby
 
Something bout this situation
The windows don't make sounds and I'm all fucked up
I can't save myself
Mama I need help
I think it's something about you
Something bout these bad decisions
Guns abound in my love and I'm all fucked up
I can't save myself
Mama I need some help
 
Mama I need some help
Mama gimme some help
Maybe you need some help
I need some help
 

The Fall

And you're walking around waving all of your feathers and shaking your ass
You should be thanking me for giving you what you never afforded
And with all that you're covered in poor little birdie it's making you crass
Yeah you're burning the bridges in all of my business I got it recorded
 
Keep counting your gold
'Cause it's all your fault
Losing what you hold
 
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the
 
And I know your behavior is only a mirror of the jealousy baby
And oh such a pity that you're getting older the pressure is crazy
The things that you're doing ain't helping your case
The things that you're doing ain't helping your case no way
 
Keep counting your gold
'Cause it's all your fault
Losing what you hold
 
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
 
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the
 
Still tripping to slip in your own dirty fingers to dip in the chicken now
And you knew that my peaches is ripe for the pickin' and you tried to pull it down
This is something you put in the motion
We all know how you get with a notion
Was the sun in the morning then you started mourning or something
And that's how it went down
You pushed me in the ocean
Better yet you put me in the mode
Wrong direction to put you in motion I get it you miss doing things at the 90
You pushed me in the ocean
Better yet you put me in the mode
Wrong direction to put you in motion I get it you miss doing things at the 90
 
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the fall
Girl you almost made it through the...
 

If We Were Made of Water

You apologize
One too many times so I gave up
You used your second tries
All the words you end up spitting up
You have gentle eyes
That I love that I hate that I love that I hate that I love that I hate that I love
 
Baby say it again
Maybe if you say it again
Maybe if you say it again
Maybe I'll believe it then
Baby say it again
Maybe if you say it again
Change some words around
Maybe I'll believe you then
 
But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
If you could rearrange your words you could've saved it
If we were made of water we could swim around it
But I can't no more
 
I still love you though
You're still my best friend
But I hate you though
And from my tippy toes
That I used to limp
Round your big ego
I shoulda told you so
When you asked me if I could forgive when you asked me I shoulda said no
 
But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
If you could rearrange your words you could've saved it
If we were made of water we could swim around it
But I can't no more
 
But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
If you could rearrange your words you could've saved it
If we were made of water we could swim around it
But I just can't believe no more
 
If we were made of water
If we were made of water
If we were made of water
If we were made of water
 

What About Love

I belong to no one
You belong to someone else but
Maybe if we just rewind the tape?
Gimme one more chance to
Gimme one more chance to show you baby
Maybe if you just realized what we could be?
 
Maybe if you just relearned my name?
Maybe if you just relearned my name?
What about the life that we could make?
We could grow older!
What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
 
I belong to no one
You belong to someone else but
Maybe if we just go back in time?
 
Hurts to see you in real life but
I can talk to you like this, is that okay?
That's the only way
That's the only way
That's the only way
 
Promised me you would never love another
You said it when we were under the covers
What about the way we kiss the same?
We could grow older
What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
What about love?
 
What about what about what about what about love, what about love babe?
What about what about what about what about love, what about love?
What about what about what about what about love, what about love babe?
What about what about what about what about love, what about love?
 
I love you
I love you
 

Love Alone

Still got your photograph, in my pocket
Reminding me of everything i wanted
Still have your t-shirt lying on my bed
Wishing i could forget all the times that we shared
 
Tell me how I'm supposed to deal
With the thought of you not being here
So tell me how I'm supposed to feel
Knowing what we had was so... real
 
And it's so hard, taking a chance
So close yet so far
Don't wanna miss a thing
And I'll keep waiting for something that I've never known
But I don't wanna be in love alone
 
I must admit that she really had me going
Thinking that i was the one, yeah
But i refuse to be somebody's toy
It can feel right but so wrong
 
So tell me how I'm suppose to deal
With the thought of you not being here
Oh tell me how I'm supposed to feel
Knowing what we had was so real
 
And it's so hard, taking a chance
So close yet so far
Don't wanna miss a thing
And I'll keep waiting for something that I've never known
But I don't wanna be in love alone
 
Tell me how I'm supposed to deal
With the thought of you not being here
So tell me how I'm supposed to feel
Knowing what we had was so real
 
And it's so hard, taking a chance
So close yet so far
Don't wanna miss a thing
And I'll keep waiting for something that I've never known
But I don't wanna be in love alone
And it's so hard, taking a chance
So close yet so far
Don't wanna miss a thing
And I'll keep waiting for something that I've never known
But I don't wanna be in love alone
 
Tell me how I'm supposed to deal
With the thought of you not being here.
 

He Wooed Her and Wooed Her and Wooed Her

He was a lad in his twenties
She was a girl in her teens
The time, it was when there was spring in the air
And everyone knows what that means!
 
Without any doubt he decided
That she was the one in his life
So he knelt on his right knee and twisted his left
And asked her if she'd be his wife
 
So he wooed her and wooed her and wooed her
She wouldn't say yes there and then
'Cause her mother had said she was much too young
So he wooed her and wooed her again
 
He was a lad in his thirties
She in her twenty-third year
He still loved the girl, but she still answered no
So he dropped a strong, silent tear
 
And when he was passing his forties
She said, 'I want you for my own
But it would break mother's heart now
if we were to wed
As she'd hate to be left all alone'
 
So he wooed her and wooed her and wooed her
She wouldn't say yes there and then
'Cause her mother had said she was much too young
So he wooed her and wooed her again
 
He was a lad in his sixties
She was about fifty-three
And he was still crazy to wed, but her ma
Still warbled 'The Isle of Capri'
 
And when he had grown to his eighties
He told her that he'd done his best
And although he'd been faithful for sixty-nine years
He was only a man like the rest
 
So he wooed her and wooed her and wooed her
She wouldn't say yes there and then
'Cause her mother had said she was much too young
So he wooed her and wooed her again
 
He was a hundred and twenty
And she about a hundred and four
And he had entirely given up hope
Till her ma went and married once more
 
At last the girl said she would wed him
And though it may sound very weird
The poor stork had waited for so many years
That it flew down the flu with a beard
 
Still he wooed her and wooed her and wooed her
The wooing had gone to his brain
And he had to lay off for a year or two
Before he could woo her again
 

Moon Acacia

The wind blew off the dust
But didn't dry tears from your eyes
That sweetest flavour of the moon acacia
Clearly fooled my mind
 
So draw the way to you
And send it by hot-air balloon
Want to drown myself in your blue eyes
Never come up, 'cause it's so hard
To live without you in empty world
 
Drop down all your guns
And truckle to the love of us
You're a book I have written so
There's really nothing you can hide
 
It's getting cold, but you feel all the same
Should I wait for the frost or should I go away?
I need your hug because I'll go insane
I need your hug!
 
Now every morning have to play a tune
That fortunately help me forget you
'Cause I'm feeling down
I'm feeling down
 
I'm feeling down
I'm feeling down
I'm feeling down
I'm feeling down
 

All Through the Night (Ar Hyd y Nos)

Ev'ry star in heaven is singing
All through the night
Hear the glorious music ringing
All through the night
Songs of sweet ethereal lightness
Wrought in realms of peace and whiteness
See, the dark gives way to brightness
All through the night
 
Look, my love, the stars are smiling
All through the night
Lighting, soothing and beguiling
Earth's sombre plight
So, when age brings grief and sorrow
From each other we can borrow
Faith in our sublime tomorrow
All through the night
 
Holl amrantau'r sêr ddywedant
Ar hyd y nos
'Dyma'r ffordd i fro gogoniant'
Ar hyd y nos
Golau arall yw tywyllwch
I arddangos gwir brydferthwch
Teulu'r nefoedd mewn tawelwch
Ar hyd y nos
 

I've Got Me a Home

I’ve got me a home not made by hands
I’ve got me a home in Heaven on high
I’ve got me a home way beyond the sky
 
I’m gonna see my Lord
See the one who bled and died for me
Gonna fall down at His feet
Thank Him for all He’s done for me
Gonna see my Lord when I get home
 
Gonna worship Him all day long
I’m gonna worship Him with a new song
I’m gonna worship all day long
As we gather ‘round the throne
Gonna worship Him when I get home
 
I’m gonna walk those streets of gold
I’m gonna walk those golden streets someday
I’m gonna walk those streets of gold as eternity rolls
I’m gonna walk those golden streets when I get home
 

Self/Less

I break my neck for you, I bend space and time
I break my back in two till blood fills my eyes
And if I die, you wouldn’t mind
I would leave it all behind
And if I die... I leave it all behind
 
You’ve got your knife to my throat, I wouldn’t hesitate to... wait until you cut me through
You’ve got the bare hole I’m staring into
Should I pull the trigger for you?
Let me mention, this is for you!
 
I die for you
I die for you!
 
I break my neck for you, I bend space and time
I break my back in two till blood fills my eyes
And if I die, you wouldn’t mind
I would leave it all behind
And if I die... I leave it all behind
Yeah, I’d be fine
 
Yeah, I’d be fine! I don’t mind!
With your noose around my neck
Yeah, I’d be fine! I don’t mind!
With your barrel to my head
Yeah, I’d be fine! I don’t mind!
That I’m hanging by your thread
Yeah, I’d be fine! I don’t mind
That you’re blaming me inside
 
I’d die for you. I’d die for you!
 
I break my neck for you, I bend space and time
I break my back in two till blood fills my eyes
And if I die, you wouldn’t mind
I would leave it all behind
And if I die, I'd leave it all behind
Yeah, I’d be fine
Yeah, I’d be fine
 
And if I die, you wouldn’t mind
I’d leave it all behind
And if I die... I leave it all behind
Yeah, I’d be fine
