GUNS AND HORSES

You're so quiet
But it doesn't faze me
You're on time
You move so fast makes me feel lazy
Lets join forces
We've got our guns and horses
I know you've been burned
But every fire is a lesson learned
I left my house
Left my clothes
Door wide open, heaven knows
That you're so worth it,
You are
But I wish I could feel it all for you
I wish I could be it all for you
If I could erase the pain
Then maybe you'd feel the same
I'd do it all for you, I would
Lets type words
Because they amount to nothing
Play it down
Pretend you can't take what you found
But you found me
On a screen you sit at permanently
I left my house
Left my clothes
Door wide open
Heaven knows
You're so worth it, you are
But I wish I could feel it all for you
I wish I could be it all for you
If I could erase the pain
Maybe you'd feel the same
I'd do it all for you, I would
Its time to come clean,
And make sense of everything
Its time that we found out who we are
Cos when I'm standing here in the dark
I see your face in every star
But I wish I could feel it all for you
I wish I could be it all for you
If I could erase the pain
Maybe you'd feel the same
I'd do it all for you, I would
I'd do it all for you
STARRY EYED
Handle Bars
That I let go, let go
For anyone
Take me in
And I'll throw out my heart
And get a new one
Next thing, we're touching
You look at me its like you hit me with
lightning
Oh
Everybody's starry-eyed,
and everybody glows
Oh
Everybody's starry-eyed,
and my body goes
So we burst
Into colours
Colours
And carousels
Fall head first
Like paper planes and playground games
Next thing, we're touching
You look at me its like you hit me with
lightning
Oh
Everybody's starry eyed,
and everybody glows
Oh
Everybody's starry eyed,
and my body goes
Next thing, we're touching
Next thing, we're touching
We come and we go
but we're not in love
Next thing, we're touching
We come and we go
but we're not in love
Next thing, we're touching
Next thing, you hit me with lightning
Oh
Everybody's starry-eyed,
and everybody glows
Oh
Everybody's starry-eyed,
and my body goes
THIS LOVE (WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL)
Who are we to be emotional
Who are we to play with hearts
and throw away it all
Who are we to turn each others heads
Who are we to find ourselves
in other peoples beds
I don't like the way I never listen to myself
I feel like I'm on fire, I'm too shy
to cry for help
I don't think you know me much at all
This love is be and end all
This love will be your downfall
I'm feeling down about this love
Who are you to make me feel so good
Who are we to tell ourselves
that we're misunderstood
Oh who am I to say I'm always yours
Who am I to choose the boy that
everyone adores
I don't see a reason why
we can't just be apart
Now we're falling on each other
like we're always in the dark
I don't think you warned me much at all
This love is be and end all
This love will be your downfall
This love is not what you want
This heart will never be yours
This love is be and end all
This love will be your downfall
This love is be and end all
This love will be your downfall
UNDER THE SHEETS
Like all the boys before
You left a blood stain on the floor
You set your sights on him
You left a hand print on the door
Like all the boys before,
like all the boys before
This is our luck baby, running out
Our clothes were never off
We still have our roads to run about
To scale the map, scale the map,
to get us back on track
Ive seen you in a fight you lost,
Ive seen you in a fight
We're under the sheets
and youre killing me
In our house made of paper,
your words all over me
We're under the sheets
and youre killing me
Like all the boys before
In here the world wont bring us down
Our plan is gold dust
Out there a lonely girl could drown
In here we're frozen
Where did the people go?
My hands are empty
Youre not the answer I should know
Like all the boys before, like all the boys
before
We're under the sheets
and youre killing me
In our house made of paper,
your words all over me
We're under the sheets
and youre killing me
Were in a mess baby,
were in a mess babe
Your more is less babe
Were in a mess baby,
were in a mess babe
Your more is less babe
Were under the sheets
and youre killing me
In our house made of paper,
and your words all over me
Were under the sheets
and youre killing me
(Ive seen you in a fight you lost)
Like all the boys before,
like all the boys before
Were under the sheets
and youre killing me
Our house full of paper,
and your words all over me
Were under the sheets
and youre killing me
Were under the sheets
and youre killing me
In our house made of paper,
your words all over me
Were under the sheets
and youre killing me
THE WRITER
You wait for a silence
I wait for a word
Lie next to your frame
Girl unobserved
You change your position
And you are changing me
Casting these shadows
Where they shouldn't be
We're interrupted by the heat of the sun
Trying to prevent whats already begun
You're just a body
I can smell your skin
And when I feel it, you're wearing thin
But I've got a plan
Why don't you be the artist;
and make me out of clay?
Why don't you be the writer
and decide the words I say?
Because I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there at the end
Only its too hard to ask...
won't you try to help me
Sat on your sofa...its all broken springs
This isn't the place for those violin strings
I try out a smile and I aim it at you
You must have missed it
You always do
But I've got a plan
Why don't you be the artist;
and make me out of clay?
Why don't you be the writer
and decide the words I say?
Because I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there at the end
Only its too hard to ask...
won't you try to help me
You wait, I wait, casting shadows,
interrupted
You wait, I wait, casting shadows,
interrupted
You wait, I wait, casting shadows
Why don't you be the artist;
and make me out of clay?
Why don't you be the writer
and decide the words I say?
Because I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there at the end
Only its too hard to ask...
won't you try to help me
Why don't you be the artist;
and make me out of clay?
Why don't you be the writer
and decide the words I say?
Because I'd rather pretend
I'll still be there at the end
Only its too hard to ask...
won't you try to help me
EVERY TIME YOU GO
It starts with a picture
And it sits in your frame
And we part with a letter
And it ends in my name
It starts with forever
And it ends with a touch
And I know that you're clever
And I don't ask for much
Maybe we forgot all the things we are
when we are together
Wake me up
Wake me up
Stop my fall
Every time you go
Tape me up
Then break me up
Ever so gently
When I'm my weakest
Then its not so hard
Every time you go
You said I'm arresting
You said I had heat
I really thought that we would go further
The second time we'd meet
Now I'm tired of trying to keep you
All I want to do is sleep
But perhaps when I'm sleeping
You'll get back on your feet
Maybe we forgot all the things we were
when we were together
Wake me up
Wake me up
Stop my fall
Every time you go
Tape me up
Then break me up
Ever so gently
When I'm my weakest
Then its not so hard
Every time you go
Maybe we forgot, are we awake, or not?
Maybe we forgot, are we awake, or not?
Maybe we forgot, are we awake, or not?
Maybe we forgot
Wake me up
Wake me up
Stop my fall
Every time you go
Tape me up
Then break me up
Ever so gently
When I'm my weakest
Then its not so hard
Every time you go
Every time you go
WISH I STAYED
Why can't we speak another language
One we all agree on
When men look outside,
they see housesinstead of the fields
they grew from
We are constantly uprooted from
themmaking us tiresome (and fearful)
Can you get up right now...
endeavour to freefall?
You can fall if you want to!
Its just a matter of how far
You've treasured our hometown,
but you've forgotten where you are
And it will stay with you until your minds
been found, and it has been found
wondering around
With that skipping rope, the trampoline,
the crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn't give up hope
It's just the simple ways of getting paid,
the carelessness of running away
I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed
Patterns all arranged in my background
Pillars and posts
keeping this country on form
Letters were all sent with no addresses
so that people can't discover
That we're always under cover...
Why do I always draw triangles?
Instead of the words this paper deserves
I don't own my clothes but I own my mind,
and its not what you've lost
but its what you find
I don't own my clothes but I own my mind,
and its not what you've lost
but its what you find
With that skipping rope, the trampoline,
the crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn't give up hope
It's just the simple ways of getting paid,
the carelessness of running away
I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed
You can fall if you want to!
Its just a matter of how far
You've treasured our hometown,
but you've forgotten where you are
And it will stay with you until your minds
been found, and it has been found
wondering around
With that skipping rope, the trampoline,
the crafty smoke that made us choke
But we didn't give up hope
It's just the simple ways of getting paid,
the carelessness of running away
I wish I stayed
I wish I stayed
YOUR BIGGEST MISTAKE
Take cover
Signs don't show
You drove me off the road
But you let go
Cos your hope is gone
And every question fades away
Its a shame you don't know
what you're running from
Would your bones have to break
and your lights turn off
Would it take the end of time
to hear your hearts false start?
You know this is your biggest mistake
What a waste, what a waste,
what a waste
And of all of the things
you never explained
You know this is your biggest mistake
You tread water
Fighting for the air in your lungs
Move
Move closer
Maybe you can right all your wrongs
But you let go
Cos your hope is gone
And every answer fades away
Its a shame you don't know
what you're running from
Would your bones have to break
and your lights turn off
Would it take the end of time
to hear your hearts false start?
Wipe the mud stains
from the face stop the engine
Stop pretending
Wipe the mud spray
from your face stop the engine,
Stop pretending, that you're still breathing
I'LL HOLD MY BREATH
Breathe air you're not used to,
tread floors you don't fall through
Make waves...
You crash a symbol hard
Follow no one,
always play the wrong card
Waste days, in foreign places
Shed light, on your better side
Reassure me that you'll wait for me,
wait for me as long as it takes!
And I'll hold my breath, I'll hold my breath
Until you see me in your dreams
We'll stay awake beneath the trees
We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
A floor of diamonds just for us
You are the risk I'll always take
The only branch I'll never break
Those fears we'll blow them all away
Fight fires in your best clothes,
touch skin with your eyes closed
Chase thunder
With the volume down
Pack a suitcase, wonder to the next town
Force quit, on your losing streak
Solve a riddle in a magazine,
be tongue in cheek
Tell me that we're still too young, that
we're still too young and I'll hold my
tongue
Until you see me in your dreams
We'll stay awake beneath the trees
We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
A floor of diamonds just for us
You are the risk I'll always take
The only branch I'll never break
Those fears we'll blow them all away
I'm here, I'm here to save you
No fall, I will swim to save you
Until you see me in your dreams
We'll stay awake beneath the trees
We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
A floor of diamonds just for us
You are the risk I'll always take
The only branch I'll never break
Those fears we'll blow them all away
SALT SKIN
You're as sharp as a knife
and you fit like a glove
That is no way to live
that is no way to love
Full of fear in your skin
and the weakness in giving in
Stabbed in the back but you feel no pain
Push the heaviest doors
that you can't open
Yeah they tied me up
and my body lies still, again
You're as bright as the sun
and as bold as the moon
I don't know when you'll break
but its gonna be soon
If my will caves in, I'll be in the same
boat as you
I've got the salt skin
Running to where he is
Never going to give in
Even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created
just to understand..."the meaning of"
Hands on strings and my mouth open
Find the perfect words
that I've not spoken
And I won't tell the truth
unless you want me to
For all of the times that I lost my head
When it rolled to the floor
and I found it again
But when it came back,
I didn't know why own name
I've got the salt skin
Running to where he is
Never going to give in
Even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created
just to understand..."the meaning of"
I've got the salt skin
Running to where he is
Never going to give in
Even with the strength
He's stealing salt skin
Telling me I'm winning wars they created
just to understand..."the meaning of"
LIGHTS
I had a way then losing it all on my own
I had a heart then
but the queen has been overthrown
And I'm not sleeping now
the dark is too hard to beat
And I'm not keeping now
the strength I need to push me
You show the lights
that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
And so I tell myself that I'll be strong
And dreaming when they're gone
'Cause they're calling,
calling, calling me home
Calling, calling, calling home
You show the lights
that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I'm alone
HUMAN
Human behave yourself,
you have burst at the seam
let it all fall out open your mouth
often I lie wide awake, think of things I
can make but I dont seem to have the
parts to build them
Human I wonder why you're a better
make than I could ever build or create,
you know not love or hate
I am so scared of what will kill me in the
end for I am not prepared , I hope I will
get the chance to be someone, to be
human, look what we've done, look what
we've done
I would give my life, to be human
I would give my life, to be human
I would give my life, to be human
I would give my life, to be.
Human Im trying to come clean, I will be
a better me, I will not drink until Im dead
Ill make the most of it. I don't know what
its like to be alive, to say goodbye, to
cry a thousand tears because my ears
wont listen
Human Im trying not to lose my faith in
you, Ive sussed out all that Ive seen
through, Ive sailed an ocean
I am so scared of what I'll look like in the
end for I am not prepared, I hope I will
get the chance to be someone
to be human, look what we've done, look
what we've done
I used to hear it all so loud, the sound of
my heart breaking. The truth is waiting to
be found, I trust that I will take it
I would give my life, to be.
LITTLE DREAMS
If a plane crashed into my room
I wouldn't even flinch, I couldn't try to
move. My mind is on you, my mind is on
you
If the streetlight smashed above me
I wouldn't move an inch. Turn the glass
into stars and your face is the moon
And the night turns to you, cos my mind is
on you
You've got me caught in a place
Panic for a minute, got my brain in a
daze, I wish you weren't in it, there are so
many ways to lose your attention.
You can break everything but so what I
can take anything, I can take anything,
I can take anything
If electric charges shock me, Id smile
and fold my arms, I'd feel nothing new,
because my mind is on you
And if the floor gave way to my shoes,
I wouldn't try to fly, I can't explain what it
would feel, I just feel you
You've got me caught in a place
Panic for a minute, got my brain in a
daze I wish you weren't in it, there are
so many ways to lose your attention.
You can break everything but so what?
I can take anything
You're the heat in my bones, but you
break me with stones. You're the heat in
my bones, but you break me with stones
If a plane crashed into my room
I wouldn't even flinch, I couldn't try to
move. My mind is on you, my mind is on
you
You've got me caught in a place
Panic for a minute, got my brain in a
daze, I wish you weren't in it, there are
so many ways to lose your attention.
You can break everything but so what
I can take anything, I can take anything,
I can take anything
HOME
Lonely thoughts they seep, into mind,
into me
pushing deep
Wash the dirt, a hard days work
Know my place
On my own
No poison in my bones
On my own
This is where I build my home
My home,
this will always be my home
I work until its late
Walk in and close the gate
I look in the window
and I gaze at my face
Every line and every abrasion
This took my life to make
This took my life to make
On my own
No poison in my bones
On my own, this is where I build my home
My home
I need someone, to hold
I need someone, to hold.
ANIMAL
I'll show you all the places I'm dreaming
of. I'll take you to the Ocean,
I'll bring the Sun
We are seventeen, we are just begun...
I have loved a five four and then some
but you are the one
Wake up in the morning, we're
paralysed...We'll fly into the garden
like butterflies
There will be no blood
and there'll be no pain
I want to fall in love with you
again again again
You have stolen all my senses
There's a fever in my heart
and you are taking my defences
You are pulling me apart
Forever we're young and we are dying
and we will be spilling all our blood
So I will take away my feelings
I will be an animal
An animal
I'll tie you in my arms, I will smother you
We'll tell each other lies
like we tell the truth
I'll colour in the sky and I'll colour you
I want to draw on your skin
again again again
We will run away from danger
We will run away
BELIEVE ME
Listen, I can hear a voice,
I need a helping hand,
just to beat the void.
I need a mission,
a dream to stop me talking to myself
and now the silence is broken,
and my soul is to sell
I need to pick up the pieces
to scatter to the wind
Hold the city to your ears
you can hear the wind come in
But you can't change the world with a
song and you can't make it right when its
wrong.
I can't stop this music travelling round with
me wherever I go, its playing for you.
I can't stop the voice unravelling round
me whatever I do, its talking to you
The world dances to the rhythm of its own
heart beating for you, however you lose
So speak to me - believe me.
Don't let it slip, through your fingertips.
When there's a ghost,
don't try to reason with it
Because now Im tired, I'm wired,
so I won't miss a think.
I rope my words out to dry
and Ive forgotten what to sing
But you can't change the world
with a song and you can't make it right
when its wrong
If that's what it was to you,
then that's what it was to me.
