Nicest

all i know is that you're so nice
you're the nicest thing i've seen
i wish that we could give it a go
see if we could be something

i wish i was your favourite girl
i wish you thought i was
the reason you are in the world
i wish my smile was
your favourite kind of smile
i wish the way that i dressed
was your favourite kind of style

i wish you couldn't figure me out
but you always wanna know
what i was about
I wish you'd hold my hand
when i was upset
i wish you'd never forget
the look on my face
when we first met

Thing

i wish you had a favourite beauty spot
that you loved secretly
'cos it was on a hidden bit
that nobody else could see
basically, i wish that you loved me
i wish that you needed me
i wish that you knew
when i said two sugars
actually i meant three

i wish that without me
your heart would break
i wish that without me you'd be spending
the rest of your nights awake
i wish that without me
you couldn't eat
i wish i was the last thing on your mind
before you went to sleep

all i know is that you're
the nicest thing i've ever seen
and i wish that we could see
if we could be something

Zero

i never said that i had any anwsers
i never claimed to be the better man
i’ve got no integrity to cling to
i don’t have myself a backup plan

for twenty some odd years i’ve made a mess of things
i’ve lost most of the friendships that i’ve made
and i’ve burned a lot of bridges
and it hurts me still to say
but i never intended it that way

Integrity

yeah, i never meant to make you want to punch me out
that night in deliwear outside the club
cause i know you had it shitty growing up
and i did too
but if you forgive me
i will forgive you

you make me want to stand in my fertility
a sellout doesn’t value his own song
and i know i messed around a lot
before a fell for you
but no one’s ever loved you like i do
no ones ever loved you like i do

Tu Virás

[ olhos postos na terra, tu virás
no ritmo da própria primavera
e como as flores e os animais
abrirás as mãos de quem te espera ]

[ Eugénio de Andrade ]

She's

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
she's only happy in the sun

Only Happy

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
she's only happy in the sun

In The Sun

every time i hear you laughing
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
shes only happy in the sun

Of Love

i wanna tell you
how much

Maybe

there’s a dream that i see, i pray it can be
look cross the land, shake this land
a wish or a command
i dream that i see, don’t kill it, it’s free
you’re just a man, you get what you can

we all do what we can
so we can do just one more thing
we can all be free
maybe not in words
maybe not with a look
but with your mind

listen to me, don’t walk that street
there’s always an end to it
come and be free, you know who i am
we’re just living people

Not

we won’t have a thing
so we’ve got nothing to lose
we can all be free
maybe not with words
maybe not with a look
but with your mind

you’ve got to choose a wish or command
at the turn of the tide, is withering thee
remember one thing, the dream you can see
pray to be, shake this land

we all do what we can
so we can do just one more thing
we won’t have a thing
so we’ve got nothing to lose
we can all be free
maybe not with words
maybe not with a look
but with your mind

but with your mind

House Of

there is a house in new orleans
they call the rising sun
and it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
and god, i know i'm one

my mother was a tailor
she sewed my new bluejeans
my father was a gamblin' man
down in new orleans

now the only thing a gambler needs
is a suitcase and trunk
and the only time he's satisfied
is when he's on a drunk

The Rising Sun

oh mother, tell your children
not to do what i have done
spend your lives in sin and misery
in the house of the rising sun

well, i got one foot on the platform
the other foot on the train
i'm goin' back to new orleans
to wear that ball and chain

well, there is a house in new orleans
they call the rising sun
and it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
and god, i know i'm one

In My

in my place, in my place
were lines that i couldn't change
i was lost, oh yeah

i was lost, i was lost
crossed lines i shouldn't have crossed
i was lost, oh yeah

yeah, how long must you wait for him?
yeah, how long must you pay for him?
yeah, how long must you wait for him?

i was scared, i was scared
tired and underprepared
but i wait for you

if you go, if you go
leaving me here on my own
well i wait for you
