thank you


my tea's gone cold, i'm wondering why i
got out of bed at all
the morning rain clouds up my window
and i can't see at all
and even if i could it'd all be grey
but your picture on my wall
it reminds me that it's not so bad
it's not so bad

i drank too much last night, got bills to pay
my head just feels in pain
i missed the bus and there'll be hell today
i'm late for work again
and even if i'm there, they'll all imply
that i might not last the day
and then you call me and it's not so bad
it's not so bad

i want to thank you
for giving me the best day of my life
oh, just to be with you
is having the best day of my life

push the door,i'm home at last
and i'm soaking through and through
then you handed me a towel
and all i see is you
and even if my house falls down now
i wouldn't have a clue
because you're near me

and i want to thank you
for giving me the best day of my life
oh, just to be with you
is having the best day of my life

and i want to thank you
for giving me the best day of my life
oh, just to be with you
is having the best day of my life

white flag


i know you think that i shouldn't still love you
i'll tell you that
but if i didn't say it
well i'd still have felt it
where's the sense in that

i promise i'm not trying to make your life harder
or return to where we were

i will go down with this ship
and i won't put my hands up and surrender
there will be no white flag above my door
i'm in love and always will be

i know i left too much mess
and destruction to come back again
and i caused nothing but trouble
i understand if you can't talk to me again
and if you live by the rules of "it's over"
then i'm sure that that makes sense but

i will go down with this ship
and i won't put my hands up and surrender
there will be no white flag above my door
i'm in love and always will be

and when we meet
as i'm sure we will
all that was there
will be there still
i'll let it pass
and hold my tongue
and you will think
that i've moved on

i will go down with this ship
and i won't put my hands up and surrender
there will be no white flag above my door
i'm in love and always will be

i will go down with this ship
and i won't put my hands up and surrender
there will be no white flag above my door
i'm in love and always will be

i will go down with this ship
and i won't put my hands up and surrender
there will be no white flag above my door
i'm in love and always will be

feels like fire


i'm telling you it's over
now there's an angel
holding me
my way's easy
even if you're fallen
oh you're struggling
there's still beauty
in what we do

so que sera
let's go sailing on
there's a wise man
in every fool

i say come back
come in from the cold
into the warm
i feel like fire
guiding you back home
as darkness falls

so everyone stands in line
cos they wanna stay alive
to wait alone
no dog no bone
and then you find it's over
still it tears your heart
to slip away
from the crowd

but if you have
what it takes
to return to where
all the world
knows your name
then que sera
lets go sailing on
there's a wise man
in every fool

i say come home
leave it all behind
and settle down
i feel my love
can give me what i want
for all time

take my hand


touch my skin and tell me what your thinking
take my hand and show me where we're going
lie down next to me
look into my eyes and tell me
oh tell me what you're seeing

so sit on top of the world and tell me how you're feeling
what you feel is what i feel for you
take my hand and if i'm lying to you
i'll always be alone, if i'm lying to you

see my eyes, they carry your reflection
watch my lips and hear the words i'm telling you
give your trust to me and look into my heart and show me
show me what you're doing

so sit on top of the world and tell me how you're feeling
what you feel is what i feel for you
take my hand and if i'm lying to you
i'll always be alone, if i'm lying to you

take your time, and if i'm lying to you
i know you'll find that you believe me, you believe me, you believe me
feel the sun on your face and tell me what you're thinking
catch the snow on your tongue and show me how it tastes
take your time
take my hand and if i'm lying to you, i'll always be alone
if i'm lying to you
take your time and if i'm lying to you
i know you'll find that you believe me, you believe me

i'm no angel


if you gave me just a coin for every time we say goodbye
well i'd be rich beyond my dreams, i'm sorry for my weary life
i know i'm not perfect but i can smile
and i hope that you see this heart behind my tired eyes
if you tell me that i can't, i will, i will, i'll try all night
and if i say i'm coming home, i'll probably be out all night
i know i can be afraid but i'm alive
and i hope that you trust this heart behind my tired eyes
i'm no angel, but please don't think that i won't try and try
i'm no angel, but does that mean that i can't live my life
i'm no angel, but please don't think that i can't cry
i'm no angel, but does that mean that i won't fly
i know i'm not around each night
and i know i always think i'm right
i can believe that you might look around
i'm no angel, but please don't think that i won't try and try
i'm no angel, but does that mean that i can't live my life
i'm no angel, but please don't think that i can't cry
i'm no angel, but does that mean that i won't fly

my lover's gone


my lover's gone
his boots no longer by my door
he left at dawn
and as i slept i felt him go
returns no more
i will not watch the ocean,
my lover's gone
no earthly ships will ever
bring him home again
bring him home again
my lover's gone
i know that kiss will be my last
no more his song
the tune upon his lips has passed
i sing alone
while i watch the ocean
my lover's gone
no earthly ships will ever bring him home again
bring him home again

don't think of me


so you're with her, and not with me, i hope she's sweet, and so pretty
i hear she cooks delightfully, a little angel beside you
so you're with her, and not with me, oh how lucky one man can be
i hear your house is small and clean, oh how lovely with your home coming queen
oh how lovely it must be

when you see her sweet smile baby, don't think of me
when she lays in your warm arms, don't think of me

so you're with her, and not with me, i know she spreads sweet honey
in fact your best friend, i heard he spent last night with her
now how do you feel
how do you feel

when you see her sweet smile baby, don't think of me
when she lays in your warm arms, don't think of me
and it's too late and it's too bad, don't think of me
and it's too late and it's too bad, don't think of me

does it bother you now all the mess i made
does it bother you now the clothes you told me not to wear
does it bother you now all the angry games we played
does it bother you now when i'm not there

when you see her sweet smile baby, don't think of me
when she lays in your warm arms, don't think of me
and it's too late and it's too bad, don't think of me
and it's too late, and it's too bad, don't think of me

hunter


with one light on in one room
i know you're up when i get home
with one small step upon the stair
i know your look when i get there
if you were a king up there on your throne
would you be wise enough to let me go
for this queen you think you own

wants to be a hunter again
i want to see the world alone again
to take a chance on life again
so let me go

the unread book and painful look
the tv's on, the sound is down
one long pause, then you begin
oh look what the cat's brought in
if you were a king up there on your throne
would you be wise enough to let me go
for this queen you think you own

wants to be a hunter again
i want to see the world alone again
to take a chance on life again
so let me go, let me leave

for the crown you've placed upon my head feels too heavy now
and i don't know what to say to you but i'll smile anyhow
and all the time i'm thinking, thinking

i want to be a hunter again
i want to see the world alone again
to take a chance on life again
so let me go

i want to be a hunter again
i want to see the world alone again
to take a chance on life again
so let me go, let me leave, let me go

here with me


i didn't hear you leave
i wonder how am i still here
i don't want to move a thing
it might change my memory

oh i am what i am,
i'll do what i want, but i can't hide
i won't go, i won't sleep
i can't breathe, until you're resting here with me
i won´t leave, i can´t hide
i cannot be, until you´resting here with me

i don't want to call my friends
they might wake me from this dream
and i can't leave this bed
risk forgetting all that's been

oh i am what i am
i'll do what i want, but i can't hide
i won't go, i won't sleep
i can't breathe, until you're resting here with me
i won't leave, i can't hide
i cannot be, until you're resting here with me

see the sun


i'm comin' 'round to open the blinds
you can't hide here any longer
my god you need to rinse those puffy eyes
you can't last here any longer

and yes they'll ask you where you've been
and you'll have to tell them again and again

and you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
well i promise you you'll see the sun again
and you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
and i promise you you'll see the sun again

come on take my hand
we're going for a walk, i know you can
you can wear anything as long as it's not black
please don't mourn forever
she's not coming back

and yes they'll ask you where you've been
and you'll have to tell them again and again

and you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
well i promise you you'll see the sun again
and you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
and i promise you you'll see the sun again
and i promise you you'll see the sun again

do you remember telling me you found the sweetest thing of all
you said one day this was worth dying for
so be thankful you knew her at all
but it's no more

and you probably don't want to hear tomorrow's another day
well i promise you you'll see the sun again
and you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness
and i promise you you'll see the sun again
i promise you you'll see the sun again

see the sun again

this land is mine


from behind these walls i hear your song
oh, sweet words
the music that you play lights up my world
the sweetest that i’ve heard
could it be that i’ve been touched and turned
oh lord, please finally…finally things are changing

this land is mine but i’ll let you rule
i let you navigate and demand
just as long as you know…this land is mine
so find your home and settle in
ohhh, i’m ready to let you in
just as long as we know…this land is mine

after all the battles and the wars
the scars and loss
i’m still the queen of my domain
and feeling stronger now
the walls are down a little more each day
since you came, finally…finally things are changing

follow the days i’ve travelled alone
in this cold and colourless place till now
it’s what i had to pay

this land is mine and i let you rule
i let you navigate on demand
just as long as you know…this land is mine

sand in my shoes


two weeks away feels like the whole world should have changed
but i'm home now and things still look the same
i think i'll leave it till tomorrow to unpack, try to forget for one more night that i'm back in my flat
on the road where the cars never stop going through the night
to a life where i can't watch the sunset, i don't have time, i don't have time

i've still got sand in my shoes and i can't shake the thought of you
i should get on, forget you but why would i want to
i know we said goodbye, anything else would've been confused
but i want to see you again

tomorrow's back to work and down to sanity
should run a bath and then *clear* up the mess i made before i left here
try to remind myself that i was happy here before i knew that i could get on a plane and fly away
from the road where the cars never stop going through the night
to a life where i can watch the sunset and take my time, take all our time

i've still got sand in my shoes and i can't shake the thought of you
i should get on forget you but why would i want to
i know we said goodbye, anything else would've been confused
but i want to see you again

two weeks away, all it takes, to change and turn me around i've fallen
i walked away, and never said, that i wanted to see you again

i've still got sand in my shoes and i can't shake the thought of you
i should get on, forget you but why would i want to
i know we said goodbye, anything else would've been confused
but i want to see you again

i wanna see you again

who makes you feel


i don't touch you the way i used to
and i don't call and write when i’m away
we don't make love as often as we did do
what couldn’t wait , now waits and usually goes away
but listen and think when i say
oh but listen and think when i say
who makes you feel the way that i make you feel
who loves you and knows you the way i do
who touches you and holds you quite like i do
who makes you feel like i make you feel

i don't mind if you come home late
i don't ever ask you where you've been
i just assume if there's a problem, you'd tell me

but listen and think when i say
oh but listen and think when i say
who makes you feel the way that i make you feel
who loves you and knows you the way i do
who touches you and holds you quite like i do
who makes you feel like i make you feel
who makes you feel like i make you feel
who makes you feel like i make you feel

being weak when i am strong
being seen, who you are
being sad and lost but not alone

but listen and think when i say
oh but listen and think when i say
who makes you feel the way that i make you feel
who loves you and knows you the way i do
who touches you and holds you quite like i do
who makes you feel like i make you feel
who makes you feel the way that i make you feel
who loves you and knows you the way i do
who touches you and holds you quite like i do
who makes you feel like i make you feel

don't leave home


like a ghost don't need a key
your best friend i've come to be
please don't think of getting up for me
you don't even need to speak
when i've been here for just one day
you'll already miss me if i go away
so close the blinds and shut the door
you won't need other friends anymore

oh don't leave home, oh don't leave home

if you're cold i'll keep you warm
if you're low just hold on
cause i will be your safety
oh don't leave home

and i arrived when you were weak
i'll make you weaker, like a child
now all your love you give to me

when your heart is all i need

oh don't leave home, oh don't leave home

if you're cold i'll keep you warm
if you're low just hold on
cause i will be your safety
oh don't leave home

oh how quiet, quiet the world can be
when it's just you and little me
everything is clear and everything is new
so you won't be leaving will you

and if you're cold i'll keep you warm
and if you're low just hold on
cause i will be your safety
oh don't leave home

cause i will be your safety
and i will be your safety
and i will be your safety
oh don’t leave home

see you when you're 40


i've driven round in circles for three hours
it was bound to happen that i'd end up at yours
i temporarily forgot there's better days to come
i thought that i would give it just one more chance

cos' i want, tonight, what i've been waiting for
but i found, tonight, what i'd been warned about

you think you are complicated
deep mystery to all
well it’s taken me a while to see
you’re not so special
all energy, no meaning
with a lot of words
so paper thin the one real feeling
could knock you down

and i've seen, tonight, what i'd been warned about
i'm gonna leave, tonight, before i change my mind

so see you when you’re forty
lost and all alone
being comforted by strangers
you'll never need to know
not sad because you lost me
but sad because you thought it was cool
to be sad

you think misery will make you stand apart from the crowd
if you had walked past me today
i wouldn’t have picked you out
i wouldn’t have picked you out
wouldn’t have picked you out

now i’ve seen tonight
how could i waste my time?
and i’ll be on my way
and i won’t be back

cuz i’ve seen tonight
what i’ve been warned about
you’re just a boy, not a man
and i’m not coming back

mary's in india


danny is lonely cos mary's in india now
she said she'd call but that was three weeks ago
she left all her things well, her books and her letters from him
and as the sun rises on mary, it sets on him

just dance, just drink and just see the things i probably never get a chance to see

danny's not eating, he's drinking and sleeping in
i saw him last night at a party, he's definitely thin
he says he's happy, he looked pretty good but i think
that as the sun rises on mary, it sets on him
just dance, just drink and just see the things i probably never get the chance to see

danny came over last night and i cooked for him
we talked about you mary and how much we loved you still
he told me he's packed up your books and your letters and things
and as the sun sets on mary, it's rising on him
and we danced and we drank and i've seen some things
you probably never got the chance to see
don't worry, mary cos i'm taking care of danny
and he's taking care of me

stoned


when you're stoned, baby
and i am drunk
when we make love
it seems a little desolate
it's hard sometimes not to look away
and think what's the point
when i'm havin to hold this fire down
i think i'll explode
if i can't feel this free now

cause if you won't let me fall for you
then you won't see the best that
i would love to do for you
instead you will be missing me when i go
cause i'm bored of hangin out,
in your cold

when i feel loved, baby,
i join the road
and the world moves with me
when i feel lost i just slip away
silently, quietly take my things and go
and think what's the point,
think where's the hope when coming home

cause if you won't let me fall for you
then you won't see the best that
i would love to do for you
instead you will be missing me when i go
cause i'm bored of hangin out,
in your cold

and if you find one day,
find some freedom and relief
with this freedom maybe,
maybe you will find some peace
and with this peace, baby,
i hope it brings you back to me
bring you home, take me home

cause if you won't let me fall for you
then you won't see the best that
i would love to do for you
instead you will be missing me when i go
cause i'm bored of hangin out,
in your cold

wha-oh.... take me home
wha-oh.... take me home
when you're stoned, baby... take me home
wha-oh....

life for rent


i haven’t ever really found a place that i call home
i never stick around quite long enough to make it
i apologise that once again i’m not in love
but it’s not as if i mind that your heart aint exactly breaking

it’s just a thought, only a thought

and if my life is for rent and i don’t learn to buy
well i deserve nothing more than i get
cos nothing i have is truly mine

i’ve always thought that i would love to live by the sea
to travel the world alone and live more simply
i have no idea what’s happened to that dream
cos there’s really nothing left here to stop me

it’s just a thought, only a thought

and if my life is for rent and i don’t learn to buy
well i deserve nothing more than i get
cos nothing i have is truly mine

while my heart is a shield and i won’t let it down
while i am so afraid to fail so i won’t even try
well how can i say i’m alive

if my life is for rent…

stan



my tea's gone cold,i'm wondering why i got out of bed at all
the morning rain clouds up my window and i can't see at all
and even if i could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall
it reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad

dear slim, i wrote you but you still ain't callin
i left my cell, my pager, and my home phone at the bottom
i sent two letters back in autumn
you must not have got 'em
it probably was a problem at the post office or somethin'

sometimes i scribble addresses too sloppy when i jot 'em
but anyways, fuck it, what's been up man, how's your daughter?
my girlfriend's pregnant too, i'm out to be a father
if i have a daughter, guess what i'm-a call her? i'm-a name her bonnie

i read about your uncle ronnie too, i'm sorry
i had a friend kill himself over some bitch who didn't want him
i know you probably hear this everyday, but i'm your biggest fan
i even got the underground shit that you did with scamz

i got a room full of your posters and your pictures, man
i like the shit you did with ruckus too, that shit was fat
anyways, i hope you get this man, hit me back, just to chat
truly yours, your biggest fan, this is stan

dear slim, you still ain't called or wrote, i hope you have the chance
i ain't mad, i just think it's fucked up you don't answer fans
if you didn't want to talk to me outside your concert you didn't have to
but you could have signed an autograph for matthew
that's my little brother, man. he's only 6 years old
we waited in the blistering cold for you for 4 hours and ya just said no
that's pretty shitty man, you're like his fuckin' idol
he wants to be just like you man, he likes you more than i do

i ain't that mad, but i just don't like bein' lied to
remember when we met in denver, you said if i write you
you would write back. see, i'm just like you in a way
i never knew my father neither
he used to always cheat on my mom and beat her

i can relate to what you're sayin' in your songs
so when i have a shitty day, i drift away and put 'em on
cause i don't really got shit else, so that shit helps when i'm depressed
i even got a tattoo with your name across the chest

sometimes i even cut myself to see how much it bleeds
it's like adrenaline. the pain is such a sudden rush for me
see, everything you say is real, and i respect you 'cause you tell it
my girlfriend's jealous 'cause i talk about you 24/7
but she don't know you like i know you, slim, no one does
she don't know what it was like for people like us growing up
you've gotta call me man. i'll be the biggest fan you'll ever lose
sincerely yours, stan. ps: we should be together too

dear mr. "i'm too good to call or write my fans"
this'll be the last package i ever send your ass
it's been six months and still no word. i don't deserve it?
i know you got my last two letters, i wrote the addresses on 'em perfect

so this is my cassette i'm sending you. i hope you hear it
i'm in the car right now. i'm doing 90 on the freeway
hey slim, "i drank a fifth of vodka, ya dare me to drive?"
you know that song by phil collins from "the air in the night"?
about that guy who could have saved that other guy from drowning?
but didn't? then phil saw it all then at his show he found him?
that's kinda how this is. you could have rescued me from drowning
now it's too late. i'm on a thousand downers now, i'm drowsy

and all i wanted was a lousy letter or a call
i hope you know i ripped all o' your pictures off the wall
i love you slim, we could have been together. think about it
you ruined it now, i hope you can't sleep and you dream about it
and when you dream, i hope you can't sleep and you scream about it
i hope your conscious eats at you and you can't breathe without me
see slim, {screaming} shut up bitch, i'm trying to talk
hey slim, that's my girlfriend screaming in the trunk
but i didn't slit her throat, i just tied her up, see i ain't like you
'cause if she suffocates, she'll suffer more, and then she'll die too
well, gotta go, i'm almost at the bridge now
oh shit, i forgot, how am i supposed to send this shit out?

dear stan, i meant to write you sooner, but i've just been busy
you said your girlfriend's pregnant now, how far along is she?
look, i'm really flattered you would call your daughter that
and here's an autograph for your brother: i wrote it on your starter cap

i'm sorry i didn't see you at the show, i must have missed you
don't think i did that shit intentionally, just to diss you
and what's this shit you said about you like to cut your wrists too?
i say that shit just clownin' dawg, c'mon, how fucked up is you?
you got some issues, stan, i think you need some counselin
to help your ass from bouncin' off the walls when you get down some

and what's this shit about us meant to be together?
that type of shit'll make me not want us to meet each other
i really think you and your girlfriend need each other
or maybe you just need to treat her better
i hope you get to read this letter
i just hope it reaches you in time
before you hurt yourself, i think that you'd be doin' just fine
if you'd relax a little. i'm glad that i inspire you, but stan
why are you so mad? try to understand that i do want you as a fan
i just don't want you to do some crazy shit
i seen this one shit on the news a couple weeks ago that made me sick
some dude was drunk and drove his car over a bridge
and had his girlfriend in the trunk and she was pregnant with his kid
and in the car they found a tape but it didn't say who it was to
come to think about it...his name was...it was you. damn!
