I laid awake Hot August night and rain Too tired to stay Too tired to fight again And the bad times Since the night you went away Are just past times Since I met her today Now everybody in the world is fucking beautiful Now everybody in the world is fucking beautiful The hours dragged by Inside of these nights alone Tried closing my eyes And wished for a heart of stone And the bad times Since the day you went away Are just past times Since I met her today Now everybody in the world is fucking beautiful Now everybody in the world is fucking beautiful Now everybody in the world is fucking beautiful Now everybody in the world is fucking beautiful Beautiful beautiful but they are beautiful

Crazy, you know you always drive me crazy You never think that things will go our way Come what may Honey, I never cared about the money I always figured it would come to me Wait and see Doo doo doo, dit dit doo Doo doo doo, dit dit doo Baby, why do always tell me maybe I'm always waiting for the big Ok Doesn't matter anyway I'm dying, to believe that you're not lying In a silly game of make-believe You got something up your sleeve I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo Got no time for idle speculation I know how the story goes Ain't got time to waste on reflection Remembering the highs Dwelling on the lows Crazy, I know I always drove you crazy You found you hadn't hit the Motherlode So you'd better hit the road I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo I never think about it Doo doo doo, dit dit doo I never think about it

Her Ghost 03:07
The fading light Unquiet end to restless days Don't say goodnight Ok Ok Ok Gave up the fight A million miles got in the way That's all right Ok Ok Ok I never thought that it would matter anyway Left with a growing sense of dread I never thought that I could ever feel this way The ghost has got inside my head Echoing the last thing she said I catch my breath and Realize I love her ways Won't say goodbye Ok Ok Ok The falling stars Are all we have to light the way I'll be alright Ok Ok Ok I never knew that I would feel this way again A hope from what I thought was dead I never thought that she could take my breath away Her ghost has got inside my head Echoing all the things we said

Her heart in my heart Is my heart mine My heart in her heart Is my heart mine Lift off the ground Take to the sky Her soul in my soul Is my soul mine My soul in her soul Is my soul mine Drift through the clouds Floating in the air Pass overhead Never landing there Her life in my life Is my life mine My life in her life Is my life mine

What will we talk about tomorrow Where will we go will we still laugh I took all the hope that I could borrow Sorry I could only pay back half What does the past look like in your mind Did you think that we'd be here today Everything was lit by bright potential Do you remember where we went astray Can you tell me what it is you're thinking Can you tell me what we're supposed to do I can't keep anything I've been given Saddest thing of all was losing you
6.
Look at the mess we made of things Look at the mess we're making Letter the pressure of everything invade our senses What do you say we try again What do you say we go dancing Out through this night of Northern Stars And our defences I know I should not complain Look at all the things that grow after the spring rain Look at our breath steam in the night The stars cut into our bloodstream Fall to our knees sink through the snow Return to zero What do say we float away Up to the Seven Sisters Fall through the sky and disappear Let all your fear go I know I should not complain Look at all the things that grow after the spring rain I know I should not complain Look at all the things that grow after the spring rain I know I should not complain Look at all the things that grow after the spring rain I know I should not complain Look at all the things that grow after the spring rain

Not Even One 03:23
Crooked equations And broken math I can't find the equal signs With bigger halves You never start at the beginning Left-handed smudging all the past Not even one Not even half of this Not even one Pleasant distraction When nothing else to do You only see me When he won't see you The voices crack The sentence shatters And all that's left is unkind truth Not even one Not even half of this Not even one I'm not even half of us Not even one I'm not even half of this

Babalay 03:30
I never knew what the world had waiting for me then I never knew who to turn to or who was my friend I was on that lonesome road I always did what I was told Trying to turn lead into gold in vain I always felt that my life was waiting to begin I always felt that desire was something of a sin I was on the losing side Never meant to take that ride Push it all back deep inside again Babalay, Babalay I was on the losing side Never meant to take that ride Push it all back deep inside again Babalay, Babalay And now I see that no-one can save us from ourselves And we're the ones who make our lives a living hell I was on the losing side Never meant to take that ride Push it all back deep inside again Babalay, Babalay

I really couldn't take it anymore I knew I had to get away I didn't knew what I was heading for But I got there anyway I never knew what all the fuss was about It's just like her to never say It took me this long just to figure it out But I got there anyway I didn't know what I was aiming for I didn't figure I would stay Danger lurking behind every door But I got there anyway Got there anyway Got there anyway Figure it out I really thought I would lose my mind A new disaster everyday I hit the road without a map or sign But I got there anyway Got there anyway Yah yah WallyDog

Draw a straight line from today Through the points along the way In the middle you will find Constant weighs on your mind And the sun still beats down On that sleepy backwood town As your heart slowly breaks And the breath escapes your lungs And the words can't find your tongue As you watch your neighbour's children play and play Mother Mary has come at last Mother may I escape my past You were certain you had the part You drew the curtain on that one true heart And you can't afford the loan Of your big expensive home Eyes returning to the silent phone And the breath escapes your lungs And the words can't find your tongue As you're breaking there alone Oh so alone And the sun still beats down On that sleepy backwood town As your heart slowly breaks And the breath escapes your lungs And the words can't find your tongue As you watch your neighbour's children play and play The children play The children play

I was alone in a great big city So far from home in the great big city She didn't know my name But I loved her just the same And no-one was to blame She smiled and filled my eyes then I realized where my future lies Falling in love in the great big city I fell in love in the great big city Smell the summer in my room The sound of distant tunes In the cool night take a drive Neon lights the sky Souls have come alive I was in love with the great big city I fell in love with the great big city I was in love with the great big city I fell in love with the great big city
