She's Only Happy In The Sun

i know you may not want to see me
on your way down from the clouds
would you hear me if i told you
that my heart is with you now

she's only happy in the sun

did you find what you were after?
the pain and the laughter brought you to your knees
but if the sun sets you free, sets you free
you'll be free indeed, indeed

she's only happy in the sun

every time i hear you laughing
it makes me cry
like the story of life, of your life
is hello, goodbye

shes only happy in the sun

Losing My Religion

oh, life is bigger
it's bigger than you
and you are not me
the lengths that i will go to
the distance in your eyes
oh no, i've said too much
i set it up

that's me in the corner
that's me in the spotlight
i'm losing my religion
trying to keep up with you
and i don't know if i can do it
oh no, i've said too much
i haven't said enough
i thought that i heard you laughing
i thought that i heard you sing
i think i thought, i saw you try

every whisper of every waking hour
i'm choosing my confessions
trying to keep an eye on you
like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool
oh no, i've said too much
i set it up, consider this
the hint of the century, consider this
the slip that brought me
to my knees failed
what if all these fantasies
come flailing around
now i've said too much
i thought that i heard you laughing
i thought that i heard you sing
i think i thought, i saw you try

but that was just a dream
that was just a dream

but that was just a dream
try, cry, why try?
that was just a dream
just a dream, just a dream
dream

Quelqu' Un M'a Dit

on me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand chose
elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses
on me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud
que de nos chagrins il s'en fait des manteaux
pourtant quelqu'un m'a dit
que tu m'aimais encore
c'est quelqu'un qui m'a dit que tu m'aimais encore
serait ce possible alors?

on dit que le destin se moque bien de nous
qu'il ne nous donne rien et qu'il nous promet tout
parait qu'le bonheur est à portée de main
alors on tend la main et on se retrouve fou
pourtant quelqu'un m'a dit

mais qui est ce qui m'a dit que toujours tu m'aimais?
je ne me souviens plus c'était tard dans la nuit
j'entend encore la voix, mais je ne vois plus les traits
"il vous aime, c'est secret, lui dites pas que j'vous l'ai dit"
tu vois quelqu'un m'a dit

que tu m'aimais encore, me l'a t'on vraiment dit
que tu m'aimais encore, serais ce possible alors?

on me dit que nos vies ne valent pas grand chose
elles passent en un instant comme fanent les roses
on me dit que le temps qui glisse est un salaud
que de nos tristesses il s'en fait des manteaux
pourtant quelqu'un m'a dit que...

Hypnotized

so that's how you found me
rain falling around me
lookin down at a worm
with a long way to go
and the traffic was hissing by
and i was homesick, and i was high

i was surrounded by a language
in which i could say only hello
and thank you very much
but you spoke so i could understand
and i drew a treasure map on your hand

and you were no picnic, you were no prize
but you had just enough pathos
to keep me hypnotized, hypnotized

the map led to an island
in a sea of store-bought dreams
where soulless singers sang
over beats built by machines

and lovely girls were hovering
above my head like gulls
with their long slender necks
and their delicate skulls

and i was no picnic, i was no prize
but i had just enough sweetness
to keep you hypnotized, hypnotized

so that's how you found me
rain falling around me
lookin down at a worm
with a long way to go

We'll Meet Again

we'll meet again
don't know where
don't know when
but i know we'll meet again
some sunny day
keep smiling through
just like you always do
till the blue skies chase
the dark clouds far away

so you please say "hello"
to the folks that i know
tell 'em it won't be long
they'd be happy to know
that when you saw me go
i was singing this song

we'll meet again
don't know where
don't know when
but i know we'll meet again
some sunny day

Toranja /// *

Quebramos Os Dois

era eu a convencer-te de que gostas de mim
tu a convenceres-te de que não é bem assim
era eu a mostrar-te o meu lado mais puro
tu a argumentares os teus inevitáveis

eras tu a dançares em pleno dia
e eu encostado como quem não vê
eras tu a falar p'ra esconder a saudade
e eu a esconder-me do que não se dizia

afinal...
quebramos os dois afinal
quebramos os dois...

desviando os olhos por sentir a verdade
juravas a certeza da mentira
mas sem queimar de mais
sem querer extinguir o que já se sabia

eu fugia do toque como do cheiro
por saber que era o fim da roupa vestida
que inventara no meio do escuro onde estava
por ver o desespero na cor que trazias

era eu a despir-te do que era pequeno
tu a puxares-me para um lado mais perto
onde se contam histórias que nos atam
ao silêncio dos lábios que nos mata

eras tu a ficar por não saberes partir
e eu a rezar para que desaparecesses
era eu a rezar para que ficasses
tu a ficares enquanto saías

não nos tocamos enquanto saías
não nos tocamos enquanto saímos
não nos tocamos e vamos fugindo
porque quebramos como crianças

afinal...
quebramos os dois afinal
quebramos os dois...

é quase pecado que se deixa
quase pecado que se ignora

Wicked Game

the world was on fire
no one could save me but you
strange what desire will make foolish people do
i never dreamed that i'd meet somebody like you
and i never dreamed that i'd lose somebody like you

no, i don't want to fall in love
[this love is only gonna break your heart]
no, i don't want to fall in love
[this love is only gonna break your heart]
with you
[this love is only gonna break your heart]

what a wicked game you play
to make me feel this way
what a wicked thing to do
to let me dream of you
what a wicked thing to say
you never felt this way
what a wicked thing to do
to make me dream of you
and i don't wanna fall in love
[this love is only gonna break your heart]
and i don't want to fall in love
[this love is only gonna break your heart]
with you

the world was on fire
no one could save me but you
strange what desire will make foolish people do
i never dreamed that i love somebody like you
and i never dreamed that i'd lose somebody like you

nobody loves no one

The Magic Numbers

I See You, You See Me

i never wanted to love you, but that's okay
i always knew that you'd leave me anyway
but darling when i see you, you see me
i asked the boys if they'd let me go out and play
they always said that you'd hurt me anyway
but darling when i see you, i see me

and it's alright
i never thought I'd fall in love again, it's alright
i look to you as my only friend, it's alright
i never thought that i could feel there's something
rising, rising in my veins, looks like it's happened again

i never thought that you wanted for me to stay
so i left you with the girls that came your way
and darling when i see you, i see me

i often thought that you'd be better off left alone
well throw a circle round and ... with broken bones
but darling when i see you, i see me

you always looked like you had something else on your mind
when i try to tell you, you tell me "nevermind"
but darling when i see you, you see me

i wanna tell you that i never loved anyone else
you wanna tell me that you're better off by yourself
but darling when i see you, you see me

oooh, oo-oo-oooh...
this is not what i'm like, this is not what i do
this is not what i'm like, i think i'm falling for you

i never thought, this is not what i'm like, this is not what i do
i never thought, this is not what i'm like, i think i'm falling for you

i never thought that i could feel there's something
rising, rising in my veins
and it looks like i feel there's something
rising, rising in my veins
looks like it's happened again
