Woke Up

i hurt myself today
to see if i still feel
i focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
the needle tears a hold
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but i remember

everything

This Morning

what have i become
my sweetest friend
everyone i know goes away
in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt
i will let you down
i will make you hurt

And Found

i wear this crown of thorns
upon my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
i cannot repair
beneath the stains of time
the feelings disappear
you are someone else
i'm still right here

Myself

what have i become
my sweetest friend
everyone i know goes away
in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt
i will let you down
i will make you hurt

Dead

if i could start again
a million miles away
i would keep myself
i would find a way

Hurt

A Lover

once i had a lover in berlin
said a frail old woman
from a table next to mine
his voice was like an ancient violin
and he spoke to me that voice
that voice
.
i believe they call it falling for a man
but this falling made me fly
left me soaring to the sky
there wasn't any sense
there was no plan
but who would trade this passion
for the safety of dry land?
not i
not he

In Berlin

and we knew we had to travel far away
we know we had to disappear
were no one else could find us
a sailing ship would take us from the bay
it sails would fill with an offshore wind to blind us
we gambled our security the future for the now
sailed off towards the storm, safety cast aside
we've gone beyond what reason would allow
but who could tame the tidal wave
and tell it where to go?
not i
not you
.
reality then brought it to an end
said the frail old women
shaking underneath her hat
a decent set of values is no friend
it's reason now that blinds us,
please believe
and passion is not willing to be steered
purity alone won't fill a ship's wide sails
life will sometimes bring what we most feared
and who could ever say
when to go or when to stay?
not you
not we

After

one, two, three
if you close the door
the night could last forever
leave the sunshine out
and say hello to never

all the people are dancing
and they're having such fun
i wish it could happen to me

but if you close the door
i'd never have to see the day again

if you close the door
the night could last forever
leave the wine-glass out
and drink a toast to never

oh, someday i know
someone will look into my eyes
and say hello
you're my very special one

but if you close the door
i'd never have to see the day again

Hours

dark party bars, shiny cadillac cars
and the people on subways and trains
looking gray in the rain, as they stand disarrayed
oh, but people look well in the dark

and if you close the door
the night could last forever
leave the sunshine out
and say hello to never

all the people are dancing
and they're having such fun
i wish it could happen to me

cause if you close the door
i'd never have to see the day again
i'd never have to see the day again, once more
i'd never have to see the day again

(Are You)

i've felt you coming girl
as you drew near
i knew you'd find me
cause i longed you here
are you my desitiny?
is this how you'll appear?
wrapped in a coat
with tears in your eyes?
well take that coat babe
and throw it on the floor
are you the one
that i've been waiting for?

The One

as you've been moving
surely toward me
my soul has comforted
and assured me
that in time my heart
it will reward me
and that all will be revealed
so i've sat and i've watched
an ice-age thaw
are you the one
that i've been waiting for?

That I've

out of sorrow
entire worlds have been built
out of longing
great wonders have been willed
they're only little tears
darling, let them spill
and lay your head
upon my shoulder
outside my window
the world has gone to war
are you the one
that i've been waiting for?

Waiting For ?

oh, we will know, won't we?
the stars will explode in the sky
oh, but they don't, do they?
stars have their moment and then they die

.
there's a man who spoke wonders

though i've never met him
he said
"he who seeks finds and who knocks will be let in"
i think of you in motion
and just how close you are getting
and how every little thing anticipates you
all down my veins my heart-strings call
are you the one
that i've been waiting for?

Challengers

yes i know it was late
we were greeting the sun
before long
and you live with someone
i live with somebody too
leave it there
for safe keeping
one of the west village in plains
that was the custom
come dawn
.
on the walls of the day
in the shade of the sun
we wrote down
another vision of us
we were the challengers of
the unknown
"be safe" you say
whatever the mess you are you mind okay
that is the custom
on down
.
until i see you around
until we clear the accounts
leave it there
leave it to us
we are the challengers of
the unknown

The First

i have a lover
a lover like no other
she got soul, soul, soul, sweet soul
and she teach me how to sing

shows me colours when there's none to see
gives me hope when i can't believe
that for the first time
i feel love

i have a brother
when i'm a brother in need
i spend my whole time running
he spends his running after me

Time

when i feel myself going down
i just call and he comes around
but for the first time
i feel love

my father is a rich man
he wears a rich man's cloak
gave me the keys to his kingdom coming
gave me a cup of gold

he said i have many mansions
and there are many rooms to see
but i left by the back door
and i threw away the key
yeah, i threw away the key

for the first time
i feel love
