Paroles de chansons

Cloud Boat

All of my Years

Every single step feels like the last
Footsteps still sound
Like the sound of my head on the floor
Wishing away the dark again
You’ll sleep well tonight
 
[Chorus]
But never in all of my years
Have I wished for a god
To preside over all that I do
Cause I can’t think of
Growing oh so old knowing what I did
 
Every single time fails to begin
So I question my love
For the sound of the trees in the rain
Washing over me
Like I held it all in my head
 
[Chorus]
But never in all of my years
Have I wished for a god
To preside over all that I do
Because I can’t think of
Growing oh so old knowing what I did
 

Thoughts in Mine

I’ve got all these plans in my head
Floating around like no one knows they’re there
They make me stop and close both my eyes
 
I get tired of all the places I can think
Just like all the voices tell me
I can’t just leave in case it all gets tough
 
We’ll be together where the lights can’t burn us
You seem happy so I’ll take my time
Floating around like the thoughts in mine
 
I won’t stop until the love lost all makes sense
I’ll stay in your stomach where your eyes can’t find me
I can’t just leave in case it all gets tough
 
We’ll be together where the lights can’t burn us
You seem happy so I’ll take my time
I’d never tell you but I live in your head
Floating around like the thoughts in mine
 

The Glow

Take some of these candles
The glow will guide you out
Drink all of this water
And make sure that you tell me
 
That this is not the end
 
It's with these I learn
That madness runs in circles
In hot water drift away
Until your skin is the colour of calm
 
It's in steps and turns
That the fire ate the room up
It burned holes in all the chairs
I thought I wouldn't make it past the hour
 
Take some of these candles
The glow will guide you out
Drink all of this water
And make sure that you tell me
 
I should look out through the window
A hundred times a day
And swim out in the distance
To keep a sense of space
'Cause this is not the end of everything ever
Now all your before is somebody's after
 

Bricks Are For

Bricks are for inside broken homes
Don’t leave the door
Unless you’re ready to fall
And when they all go
Hang back on your own
Cause the place they’re headed for
Isn’t worth your love
 
And when he comes home
Dressed in all your clothes
You can tell that he knows
Where your mind has gone
 
Cause you’ve already taken off
 
Tell me if you see him
Tell me if he cares
Tell me if his eyes still move the same
 
Cause you’ve already taken off
 

Portraits of Eyes

Each one filled me with closed eyes and falling
Like a key for the lock to my mouth
Every night seemed like an end to the dreaming
And the wait…
 
Even time screamed like the nausea ending
But sometimes the sickness came back
This every day was like a new kind of crawling around
 
I went in search of peace of mind
And my family’s eyes
Imagine all the space I’d find…
 
Please don’t cry if I ask
The way to the rope my love
I’m not gonna tie any knots
I just need you to hold on while I go down
 
I’ve started to wander outside of the walls
And map out the darkness around
The first page of my map is in colour
A scrapbook for all that I love
The second page of my map is all selfish desires
And looks like the work of a child
 
Nobody needs to know the rest of my country
I see all I need and it’s mine
Nobody needs to know that I can’t breathe or love
 

Hideaway

You know the time you fell
And I helped as best as I could
But now it's all on top of our heads
You know I couldn't just leave it there
But we tried and he saw
 
You know the time we stood
And I showed you where I first felt
That the weather and the birds conspire
You know they take these things quite hard
But we tried and he saw
 
But you know if you sing that song
Then the wolves will come
And they'll scratch right down our door
Until you scream for the day to come
It's a heartfelt apology from him to me
That say, 'You lost, and it's all on top of our heads'
 
We'll go to the river mouth
Where it sings so softly to me
And runs right through our veins
And we learned each other's names
But we tried and he saw
 

Told You

My love
I think I’ve lost my way
The time was on my hand
Tell me I made you proud
My love
 

Aurelia

It’s true I’ve been lying with the lights left on
And turning my back on it all
I’ve never felt the fire from the street
And I’m thinking of stopping it all
 
I’ve seen people with their arms up high
Waving for me to come down
But I don’t see enough from above
To make me miss just walking around
 
You don’t remember do you boy?
When I showed you the best place I’d been
I’ve been circling around like a butterfly
Wondering if I should dive in
 
I gave you a sign in trust that time
Would show you the patterns to be seen
Now under the trees and the leaves
You’ll sit here and watch me get clean
 
Wondering if I should dive in
 

Carmine

He’s gone, but he’s sleeping
'Cause he’s worried that they’ve got nowhere to hide
But you know, he’s never fully dreaming
'Cause he’s scared, that they’ll find one another
 
You’d hold hands with him
To know that someone reached
A space in time
Where you know that you’ve got things to see
 
Like the corner where the air came in
And the bedroom where the walls were thin
I heard you calling in the early hours
“Please someone will you let me in?”
 
My friend, you’re struggling
'Cause you know, that life outside is grey
And you said “Everything is nothing
Compared to the silence of another”
 

Kowloon Bridge

Dry land is where mother sits
Watching you sail out
The brave boy on the ocean
The man in search of land
 
She'll still be there
When the tide washes you ashore
With a knowing smile
She'll see you sail once more
