  • to you, my love

    kudos to people that sing a capella and humiliate others with their talent.

    i want to sing to you, my love
    my only love and happiness
    don't be so blue, so blue, my love
    take off your shoes, take off my dress
    i want to sing to you, my love
    my only love and happiness
    don't be so blue, so blue, my love
    this too shall pass, this too shall pass

    but tell me, what have i done to deserve you?
    must have done something cause that's how it works
    must have been kind to kittens and birds,
    in a previous life must have thought happy thoughts...

    'cause there, you were there right beside me
    then somehow inside me while inside myself
    books on the shelf thoughts on the shelf
    hands to myself, i should definitely keep my hands to myself

    love is a dangerous pastime
    caught between madness and gladness of flight
    nothing is wrong and nothing is right
    falling asleep in your arms every night

    but love's such a strange situation
    full of frustration and anger and fear
    everything's tears
    nobody hears
    nobody's here, and nobody hears...

    i want to sing to you, my love
    my only love and happiness
    don't be so blue, so blue, my love
    take off your shoes, take off my dress
    i want to sing to you, my love
    my only love and happiness
    don't be so blue, so blue, my love
    this too shall pass, this too shall pass...



    I Want to Sing
  • the wrist-slitting song of the week

    looking out the door
    i see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners
    parading in a wake of sad relations
    as their shoes fill up with water

    maybe i'm too young
    to keep good love from going wrong
    but tonight, you're on my mind,
    so you never know

    broken down and hungry for your love,
    with no way to feed it
    where are you tonight?
    child, you know how much i need it.
    too young to hold on
    and too old to just break free and run

    sometimes a man gets carried away,
    when he feels like he should be having his fun
    much too blind to see the damage he's done
    sometimes a man must awake to find that, really,
    he has no-one

    so i'll wait for you, and i'll burn
    will i ever see your sweet return?
    oh, will i ever learn?
    oh, lover, you should've come over
    'cause it's not too late.

    lonely is the room, the bed is made,
    the open window lets the rain in
    burning in the corner is the only one
    who dreams he had you with him
    my body turns and yearns for a sleep
    that won't ever come

    it's never over,
    my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
    it's never over,
    all my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her
    it's never over,
    all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter
    it's never over,
    she's a tear that hangs inside my soul forever

    but maybe i'm just too young
    to keep good love from going wrong

    oh, lover, you should've come over

    yes, and i feel too young to hold on
    i'm much too old to break free and run
    too deaf, dumb, and blind
    to see the damage i've done
    sweet lover, you should've come over
    oh, love, well i'll wait for you
    lover, you should've come over
    'cause it's not too late.

    there's something about this band...

    i rewrite my life beneath the moonlight
    please hold me now till my breath runs out
    there are many things that i am not
    but there's one thing that i can't deny

    a double bluff you fed me lines,
    the shortest cut you're searching for
    a mesh of tones surround your eyes
    i wish i knew how it came to this

    i always said you could rely on me
    now it seems that i was wrong
    I want you to stay
    I want you to stay with me

    'cause nothing works round here
    where cranes collect the sky
    i long for the neon signs of night
    'cause nothing works round here

    you know the way i feel
    can you remember what we had?

    why do you think i over take?
    i speak to you and you don't say no
    a camera runs just to collect
    i wish i knew how it came to this

    the lies we tell are bound on film
    and you start to push your lips to mine
    outside my room you closed your eyes
    and in the end it came to this

    i always said you could rely on me
    now it seems that i was wrong
    i want you to stay
    i want you to stay with me

    'cause nothing works round here
    where cranes collect the sky
    i think of your face at night
    'cause nothing works around here

    you know the way i feel
    can you remember what we had?
    as time gets more compressed
    you're always my reminder

    a lifetime disappears
    can you remember what we had?
    as time gets more compressed,
    you're always my reminder
    you're always my reminder

    you know the way i feel
    you know the way i feel

    23 jul 2006, 16:39

    being in love is pathetic, but it feels awesome :)

    all my little plans and schemes
    lost like some forgotten dreams
    seems that all i really was doing
    was waiting for you

    just like little girls and boys
    playing with their little toys
    seems like all they really were doing
    was waiting for love

    don't need to be alone
    no need to be alone

    it's real love
    it's really real
    it's real love
    it's really real

    from this moment on i know
    exactly where my life will go
    seems that all i really was doing
    was waiting for love

    don't need to be afraid
    no need to be afraid

    it's real love
    it's really real
    it's real love
    it's really real

    thought i'd been in love before,
    but in my heart i wanted more
    seems like all i really was doing
    was waiting for you

    don't need to be alone
    no need to be alone

    it's real love
    it's really real
    it's real love
    it's really real
