feel my embrace now.

On a night like tonight
you saved my life
Red and green
wet shoes slip on refracted lights

Running faster than my legs can take me
Shouting louder than my lungs allow me

Why has the river flood
Still gotta die for someone
Feel my embrace now
Feel my embrace now

Light a match,
bring the flame over to your eye
Slipping past, you won’t see me before you die
Breaking down our sleep, my head’s still aching
This war is killing you and all around me

Why has the river flood
Still gotta die for someone
Feel my embrace now
Feel my embrace now

You go, go, go, go

Why has the river flood
Still gotta die for someone
Feel my embrace now
Feel my embrace now

is it real now?

How can I explain
Talking to myself
Will I see again

We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out and out again
Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Thought I’d never see
The love you found in me
Now it’s changing all the time
Living in a rhythm where the minutes working overtime

Catch me I’m falling down
Catch me I’m falling down

Don’t stop just keep going on
I’m your shoulder lean upon
So come on deliver from inside
All we got is tonight that is right till first light

what a lovely way to burn.

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that’s so hard to bear

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night.

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
I light up when you call my name
And you know I’m gonna treat you right

You give me fever when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night

Ev’rybody’s got the fever
that is something you all know
Fever isn’t such a new thing
Fever started long ago

Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said ‘Julie, baby, you’re my flame
Thou giv-est fever when we kisseth
Fever with thy flaming youth
Fever I’m on fire
Fever yea I burn for sooth’

Captain Smith and Pocahantas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said ‘Daddy, o, don’t you dare
He gives me fever with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever, I’m his misses,
Oh daddy, won’t you treat him right’

Now you’ve listened to my story
Here’s the point that I have made
Cats were born to give chicks fever
Be it Fahrenheit or centigrade
Then we give you the fever when we kiss you
Fever if you live and learn
Fever till you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn

heart of glass.

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind
Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I’m feeling fine
Love is so confusing there’s no peace of mind
If I fear I’m losing you it’s just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I’m the one you’re using, please don’t push me aside
We could’ve made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love’s true bluish light

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out I had a heart of glass [radio version]
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass [album version]
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love’s gone behind

wish I had a mango tree.

I wish I had a mango tree
In my backyard
With you standin next to me
Take the picture
From her lips I heard her say
Can I have you
Caught up on what to say
I said you do

I said you do
I said you do

Through my eyes I can see
A shooting star
Weavn its way across the sea
Somewhere from mars
Down the street we would run
To scratch our names in the path
Young and free in the sun
Wheels upon the tar
I said you do
I said you do
I said you do
I said you do

What Power art thou,
Who from below,
Hast made me rise,
Unwillingly and slow,
From beds of everlasting snow!

See’st thou not how stiff,
And wondrous old,
Far unfit to bear the bitter cold.

I can scarcely move,
Or draw my breath,
I can scarcely move,
Or draw my breath.

Let me, let me,
Let me, let me,
Freeze again…
Let me, let me,
Freeze again to death!

fuck it.

It’s late enough to go drivin
See what’s mine
Life’s the study of dying
How to do it right
If you’re a holly rolller
If you’re bent in the loose
If you’re hangin around
I’m holdin the noose

Come a little bit closer
And get untied
In the hearse rollin over
Just a track in the line
Fuck it

Come on let’s go drivin
Come on let’s take a little ride
Life’s the study of dyin
How to do it right

madness in a floppy.

Beneath the seas
The roaring core of the will
And the cliffs have gone under

An array of thoughts
A veil of contempt
Vivid and fluent

The inner traveller
Sneaking away on the
Sinking ocean trawler

Erased horizon
The toxic birds fly
All silent and hostile

This is a seething sea
Under an erupting dawn
A dawn of disdain

The mirrors of the will
Dormant as withering trees
That quiver and breathe
My self-loathing overflows
The watercourse

you cannot expect the form before the idea, for they will come into being together.

έξω βρέχει.



Hope there’s someone
Who’ll take care of me
When I die, will I go

Hope there’s someone
Who’ll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I’m tired

There’s a ghost on the horizon
When I go to bed
How can I fall asleep at night
How will I rest my head

Oh I’m scared of the middle place
Between light and nowhere
I don’t want to be the one
Left in there, left in there

There’s a man on the horizon
Wish that I’d go to bed
If I fall to his feet tonight
Will allow rest my head

So here’s hoping I will not drown
Or paralyze in light
And godsend I don’t want to go
To the seal’s watershed

Hope there’s someone
Who’ll take care of me
When I die, Will I go

Hope there’s someone
Who’ll set my heart free
Nice to hold when I’m tired

darkness imprisoning me.

ένα.

i can’t remember anything
can’t tell if this is true or dream
deep down inside I feel to scream
this terrible silence stops me

now that the war is through with me
I’m waking up, I cannot see
that there’s not much left of me
nothing is real but pain now

hold my breath as I wish for death
oh please God, wake me

back in the womb it’s much too real
in pumps life that I must feel
but can’t look forward to reveal
look to the time when I’ll live

fed through the tube that sticks in me
just like a wartime novelty
tied to machines that make me be
cut this life off from me

hold my breath as I wish for death
oh please God, wake me

now the world is gone I’m just one
oh God, help me hold my breath as I wish for death

darkness imprisoning me
all that I see
absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
trapped in myself
body my holding cell

landmine has taken my sight
taken my speech
taken my hearing
taken my arms
taken my legs
taken my soul
left me with life in hell

Do you feel like a chain store?
Practically floored
One of many zeros
Kicked around bored
Your ears are full but your empty
Holding out your heart
To people who never really
Care how you are

So give me Coffee and TV
Peacefully
I’ve seen so much
I’m goin blind
And i’m braindead virtually
Sociability
It’s hard enough for me
Take me away form this big bad world
And agree to marry me
So we can start all over again

Do you go to the country
It isn’t very far
There’s people there who will hurt you
Cos of who you are

Your ears are full of the language
There’s wisdom there you’re sure
‘Til the words start slurring
And you can’t find the door

So give me Coffee and TV
Peacefully
I’ve seen so much
I’m goin blind
And i’m braindead virtually
Sociability
It’s hard enough for me
Take me away form this big bad world

this surely is a dream.

. . . .

Hangin’ round downtown by myself
And I had so much time
To sit and think about myself
And then there she was
Like double cherry pie
Yeah there she was
Like disco superfly
I smell sex and candy here
Who’s that lounging in my chair
Who’s that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream

Hangin’ round downtown by myself
And I had too much caffeine
And I was thinkin’ ’bout myself
And then there she was
In double platform suede
Yeah there she was
Like disco lemonade
I smell sex and candy here
Who’s that lounging in my chair
Who’s that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this surely is a dream

Yeah mama this must be my dream

i’ll wrap my last kiss in a bandage.

Now you’ve absorbed it into your system
Now that you’ve allowed it to be true
Now that you’ve neutralised it, made it safe, made it yours
Now that you’ve been photographed, recorded
What are you gonna do?
What are you gonna do?

Is it so unsafe when you are
Insecure in the space where you are?
Is it so, really so,
Is it more real?
Is it more yours?
Is it more yours?
Is it more real, for you,
Than it is for him or me?
And the people who perceive it
Repeat it, distort it, improve it, update it
Slightly change it
And these people believe it
And write it all up for you
And is it more real?

And is it more real?
Does it make it more yours,
Now you’re recorded as having said it?
And being seen and done it
People have been seen to take notice
So empty
Is it so awful to be seen to feel and fail?
Overheard and noted to authenticate his story
An unsafe male trait
You know what they say
That empty vessels ring true, like bells
Make the most noise
The ink is still wet
In this case, the medium is not

Is it so unsafe when you are
Insecure in the space where you are?
Is it so, really so, unsafe you can’t let
Let go?
Is it so unsafe when you are
Insecure in the space where you are?

What are you going to do if they don’t believe you?
What are you going to do if they don’t believe you?
What are you gonna do?
What are you going to do if they don’t believe you?
What are you going to do if they don’t believe you?
What are you going to do if they don’t believe you?
What are you going to do if they don’t believe you?

her day was mine.

εδώ τα λόγια είναι περιττά. άργησαν λίγο αλλά εμφανίστηκαν στο video of the day.
beirut.

The times we had
Oh, when the wind would blow with rain and snow
Were not all bad
We put our feet just where they had, had to go
Never to go

The shattered soul
Following close but nearly twice as slow
In my good times
There were always golden rocks to throw
at those who admit defeat too late
Those were our times, those were our times

And I will love to see that day
That day is mine
When she will marry me outside with the willow trees
And play the songs we made
They made me so
And I would love to see that day
Her day was mine

ό,τι πρέπει για να ξεκινήσει δυναμικά (και χορευτικά) το σάββατο.

I close my eyes on the dancefloor
Forget about you
I lose myself in flashing colors
I’ve gotta see it through
You’re too much,
I take it that we’re over
should we even care at all?
You’re too much, too much
Shake hands and say goodbye

Your love is old
But even despite it all
Give me your hand
Let’s face this night and see it through

Right by my feet, lay broken glasses
Skeleton boy
Sweat from the walls, drips on my shoulder
I gotta see it through
You’re too much,
I take it that we’re over
Should we even care at all?
You’re too much, too much
Shake hands and say goodbye
Before the sun comes up
Shake hands and say

Your love is old
But even despite it all
Give me your hand
Let’s face this night and see it through
Your love is old
But even despite it all
Give me your hand
Let’s face this night and see it through

this sweet love.

Be, the greatest man in history
The greatest man that you can be
Just be

Walk, walk out on the beach with me
Walk out in the sea with me
Just be

All of the time you show me your love
Sweet love
And oh, how you know
This sweet love

Nights, cold nights wrapped in ecstasy
Those times still perplexing be
They just be

All of the time you show me your love
Sweet love
And oh how you know
This sweet love

bring it on.

If I was inordinately different
Than what you say
I’d lie, I would lie
If you could release me now
You know that I won’t hesistate
To lie, I would lie

Bring it on, make it right
Bring it on, to the light
Pick me up, satellite
If it’s wrong, make it right

If I lied and told you that
You’re difficult or hard to take
I’d lie, I’d still lie
If you tried to please me now
You know that I won’t remonstrate
But lie, I would lie

Bring it on, make it right
Bring it on, to the light
Pick me up, satellite
If it’s wrong, make it right

We like quiet nights on the island
Weave battered stars round our heads
We can reach new heights in this silence
We’re dragged slowly towards the edge

Bring it on, make it right
Bring it on, to the light
Pick me up, satellite
If it’s wrong, make it right

Bring it on, make it right
Bring it on, to the light
Pick me up, satellite
If it’s wrong, make it right

If I was inordinately different

monday is for drinking.

Mondays is for drinking
to the seldom seen kid

I’ve been working on a cocktail
Called “Grounds For Divorce”
Whoooooah
Polishing a compass
That I hold in my sleeve
Whoooooah
Down comes him on sticks
But then he kicks like a horse
Whoooooah
There’s a Chinese cigarette case
And the rest you can keep
And the rest you can keep
And the rest you can keep

There’s a hole in my neighborhood
Down which of late
I cannot help but fall
There’s a hole in my neighborhood
Down which of late
I cannot help but fall

Mondays is for drinking
to the seldom seen kid

Whoooooah
Whoooooah
There’s this whispering of jokers
Doing “Flesh by the Pound”
To a chorus of supporters
From the little town halls
There’ll be twisted karaoke
At the Aniseed Lounge
And I’ll bring you further roses
But it does you no good
And it does me no good
And it does you no good

There’s a hole in my neighborhood
Down which of late
I cannot help but fall
There’s a hole in my neighborhood
Down which of late
I cannot help but fall

There’s a hole in my neighborhood
Down which of late
I cannot help but fall
There’s a hole in my neighborhood
Down which of late I cannot help but fall

Someday we’ll be drinking
With the seldom seen kid
Whoooooah
Whoooooah

Elbow

and the heart beats in its cage.

Well I don’t feel better
When I’m fucking around
And I don’t write better
When I’m stuck in the ground
So don’t teach me a lesson
Cause I’ve already learned
Yeah the sun will be shining
And my children will burn

Oh the heart beats in its cage

I don’t want what you want
I don’t feel what you feel
See I’m stuck in a city
But I belong in a field

Yeah we got left, left, left, left, left, left, left

Now it’s three in the morning and you’re eating alone

Oh the heart beats in its cage

All our friends, they’re laughing at us
All of those you loved you mistrust
Help me I’m just not quite myself
Look around there’s no one else left
I went to the concert and I fought through the crowd
Guess I got too excited when I thought you were around

Oh he gets left, left, left, left, left, left, left

I’m sorry you were thinking; I would steal your fire.
The heart beats in its cage
Yes the heart beats in its cage
Alright

And the heart beats in its cage

i don’t want to hear you, kick me out.

Fake Tales of San Francisco
Echo through the room
More point to a wedding disco
Without a bride or groom
There’s a super cool band yeah
With their trilbys and their glasses of white wine
And all the weekend rockstars are in the toilets
Practicing their lines

I don’t want to hear you
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don’t want to hear, you know
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don’t want to hear you
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don’t want to hear you
I don’t want to hear your…

Fake Tales of San Francisco
Echo through the air
And there’s a few bored faces in the back
All wishing they weren’t there

And as the microphone squeaks
A young girl’s telephone beeps
Yeah she’s dashing for the exit
And she’s running to the streets outside
«Oh you’ve saved me,» she screams down the line
«The band were fucking wank»
And I’m not having a nice time.»

I don’t want to hear you
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don’t want to hear, you know
(Kick me out, kick me out)

Yeah but his bird thinks it’s amazing, though
So all that’s left
Is the proof that love’s not only blind but deaf

He talks of San Francisco, he’s from Hunter’s Bar
I don’t quite know the distance
But I’m sure thats far
Yeah I’m sure thats pretty far

And yeah, I’d love to tell you all of my problem
You’re not from New York City, you’re from Rotherham
So get off the bandwagon, and put down the handbook
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Yeah

just give me some candy, before i go.

I was perched outside in the pouring rain
Trying to make myself a sail
Then I’ll float to you my darlin’
With the evening on my tail
Although not the most honest means of travel
It gets me there nonetheless
I’m a heartless man at worst, babe
And a helpless one at best

Darling I’ll bathe your skin
I’ll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy, before I go
Oh, darling I’ll kiss your eyes
And lay you down on your rug
Just give me some candy
After my heart

Oh I’m often false explaining
But to her it plays out all the same
and although I’m left defeated
It get’s held against my name
I know you got plenty to offer baby
But I guess I’ve taken quite enough
Well I’m some stain there on your bedsheet
You’re my diamond in the rough

Darling I’ll bathe your skin
I’ll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy
before I go
Oh, darling I’ll kiss your eyes
And lay you down on your rug
Just give me some candy
After my heart

I know that there´re writings on the wall
But Darling I’ll bathe your skin
I’ll even wash your clothes
Just give me some candy
After my heart

Oh I’ll be there waiting for you

leaving ground, stepping into a new world.

I pressed my face against the glass
Smiled as my breath made some pattern or other
The world beneath unfurled before me like a sail
Glinted in gold from this rich dawn sky
Awaiting the ship they had told me would come
Quietly anticipating that which was to come

I couldn’t yet see you, still obscured by the city
The towers of glass reflected your coming
Silhouetted on the sunrise
Did I blink as I watched? Did I close my eyes?

I was not alone, I think it was the first time
Watching you rise splendid and graceful
I cheered as you sailed, a greatness unknown
I laughed as I waved and imagined you saw me
In the streets of the city, the windows of buildings
A million faces gazing upwards in wonder
A million faces together and cheering and smiling
You were the warmth of their hearts, you were the sum of their dreams
In the coldness of morning you brought warmth to their lives
Giving this feeling of wonder I could not imagine
You unlocking these thoughts no book and no picture could ever convey
This feeling and morning had opened a door
I stepped into a new world, I watched you fly
Saw you as a friend, the spirit of dreams
I imagined a new world, lands far away,
And imagined those faces as you hung in their sky

I’m leaving ground, stepping into a new world
I’m leaving ground, a new world and watching you fly
I stepped into, I stepped into a new world
I was not alone, I think it was the first time

I’m leaving ground, stepping into a new world
I’m leaving ground, stepping into a new world
Now I’m leaving home, leaving everything, leaving everything
I step into this new world leaving everything

I’m leaving ground, stepping into a new world
I’m leaving ground, stepping into a new world
Now I’m leaving home, leaving everything that I have ever known
I step into this new world leaving everything

Leaving everything, leaving everything

i need you so much closer.

πού είσαι?

The Atlantic was born today and I’ll tell you how…
The clouds above opened up and let it out.

I was standing on the surface of a perforated sphere
When the water filled every hole.
And thousands upon thousands made an ocean,
Making islands where no island should go.
Oh no.

Those people were overjoyed; they took to their boats.
I thought it less like a lake and more like a moat.
The rhythm of my footsteps crossing flatlands to your door have been silenced forever more.
The distance is quite simply much too far for me to row
It seems farther than ever before
Oh no.

I need you so much closer

I need you so much closer
So come on, come on
