Say What You Want

Twenty seconds on the back time
I feel you on the run
Never lived too long to make right
I see you're doing fine
And when I get that feeling
I can no longer slide I can no longer run
And when I get that feeling 
I can no longer hide for it's no longer fun 

Well, you can say what you want
But it won't change my mind
I'll feel the same about you
And you can tell me your reasons
But it won't change my feelings
I'll feel the same about you 

What I am is what you want of me
Now that I'm not there
Took the tables away from you
It's turned that I don't care
And when I get that feeling
I can no longer slide I can no longer run
And when I get that feeling 
I can no longer hide for it's no longer fun 

I've said goodnight try to sleep tight
Just dream of me
Go close your eyes cause I'll close mine
The sun will shine from time to time
When you dream of me

Drawing Crazy Patterns

It's like he's sleeping now
He got married in a rush
8 months on and summer's gone
He finds it hard to adjust
He's feeling younger now
Younger than he was before he wishes he had changed his mind
Old mistakes they seem so small
And if he had to be you
Then he'd get out and do the things he's always wanted 

Standing outside like a joker on a hill
He's drawing crazy patterns with his shoes
Some people push by
And everyone is cursing them
But he doesn't raise his hand
He broke his dreams and lost a friend
He's asking questions now 
Caught in his confusion
He shakes his head and looks at me
Then he shouts out loud
If you had to be me
Would you get out and do the things you always wanted 

It's like he's sleeping now
When your'e gazing at the floor
And on this late night
It's getting harder now, harder now

Halo

Bright light city
You're her religion
Superstars in their own private movie
Play just like children
Lies that take her
Places she's never seen
The kiss and tell of it all
To her seems so obsene
She's so pretty her hair is a mess
We all love her
To that we confess 

She has a halo
We really do adore her
For she has a halo
Can we touch her 

For her blindness she sees much further
Like on a wide screen viewing going down on her
She's so pretty her hair is a mess
We all love her
To that we confess 

She believes in everything
And she believes in nothing in everything 

She believes in everything
And she believes in nothing in everything
She believes in everything
And she believes in nothing


She has a halo
She has a halo

Put Your Arms Around Me

Are you ready maybe are you willing to run
Are you ready to let yourself drown
Are you holding your breath
Are you ready or not
Are you ready maybe do you long to confess
Do you feel that you're already numb
Are you sure of yourself
Would you lie if you're not
You tire me out don't want to let that happen
A secret scream so loud why did you let that happen 

So put your arms around me
You let me believe that you were someone else
Cause only time can take you
So let me believe that I am someone else 

Maybe are you ready to break
Do you think that I push you too far
Would you open yourself
Are you reckless or not
You tire me out don't want to let that happen
A secret scream so loud why did you let that happen 

So put your arms around me
So put your arms around me
Make me believe
Take me, take me somewhere, somewhere
Let me believe
Cause only time can take you so stop

Insane

Somebody told me it was over
Nobody told me where it began
No one believes in you
I understand
Like a blind man who's lost his way
No one hears a word of what you say
I forgive you
Would you do the same
I would believe you
If only you'd be true
I would believe if it were true 

Everybody wants to be a winner
Nobody wants to lose their game
Its insane for me
Its insane for you
Its insane 

I don't know where you been looking
I think it's only in your mind
Tied so tight inside of you all the thoughts unkind
I would believe you If only you'd be true
I would believe if it were true 

Cause everybody wants to be a winner
Nobody wants to lose their game
It's the same for me
It's the same for you 

It's insane 

I would believe you if only you'd be true
I'm getting older and I can't escape time

Black Eyed Boy

No I don't lack ambition
Can't you see what I hate
That it's you who is sinking
Locked behind iron gates
You should know, you're falling into fiction
I can tell your'e on, you're on some foolish mission 

Your black eyed soul, you should know
That there's nowhere else to go
My black eyed boy you will find
Your own space and time 

You call me superstitious,
me up with your deceit
I could never be malicious
Tought I seem so bittersweet
You should know, you're falling into fiction
I can tell you're on some foolish mission 

You should know, you're falling into mission
I can tell you're on some foolish mission

Polo Mint City

Round and round in Polo Mint City
Isn't it pretty in Polo Mint City 

Round and round in Polo Mint City
Isn't it pretty in Polo Mint City 

You took my breath away

White on Blonde

"Non, je suis en retard (No, I'm late)
Il faut que je sois а 9h10 а la tйlй (I have to be on TV by 9.10)"
(Note : those two lines are not in the transcript) 

A perfect face comes calling
A perfect hand reaches out
Her perfect face in the morning
December girl feels the same
She needs to find the pace
'Cause she never looked so good when she was down 

She's blonde on white, white on blonde
Her perfections are now gone, reflections everywhere
If you gaze for too long it will fade and then it's gone
Refelections everywhere 

Imagine naked legs calling
Walking barefoot in the rain
Imagine freezing cold weather
December girl feels the same
She needs to find the pace
'Cause she never looked so good when she was down 

A perfect face comes calling
A perfect hand reaches out
She needs to find the pace
'Cause she never looked so good when she was down

Postcard

I'll send you a postcard from heaven's ocean
I feel like staying here in heaven's ocean 

I've been dreaming for days now
Jump in the sea I do that easily
The sounds drowning what I'm seeing
Count everyone for questions I have not known 

There's a storm in my thoughts now
Come wash me clean beneath the waves with me
Now we're smiling see me smiling
Silence is what I need it's only in the sea

Ticket to Lie

Attention annoys me I could disappoint
So just take a walk and try to avoid
The cars in the street now they could knock you down
So just take a bus it's a long way down 

There's a ticket in my hand
If you want
I don't know what you think 

Tell me where you want to go
Take a breath when I ask you to just try
Close your eyes I'll take you there
I could take you anywhere come fly
Tell me what you want to do 
And I can make it up for you and lie 

Laughter annoys me makes me feel sad
Yes I wrote that book, can I have it back
There's black all around me and I'm lost in this crowd
There's no coming back cause I'm on my way down 

There's a ticket in my hand
I can't use it without you 

So tell me where you want to go 
Take a breath when I ask you to just try
Close your eyes I'll take you there
I could take you anywhere come fly
So tell me where you want to go
Take a breath when I ask you to just try
Tell me what you want to do 
And I can make it up for you and lie
So tell me where you want to go
I will put that ticket in your hand

Good Advice

Open the window I need some air
So many people and there's such disorder here
Familiar faces found out lies
And to distract I watch the passers by
I wonder what they'd recognize
And what they'd recommend to fill my days
Possessions start to wear me down
I need some good advice some good advice to wear me crown 

I'm nervous can you help me 

Inside they harbour secret thoughts
They peek through windows that have twice been locked
I have to walk to wear me out
I need some good advice some good advice to wear me crown 

I'm nervous can you help me 

I fold my arms and pray to leave
I've got a headful of ideas inside of me
My lips pressed tight so as not to drown
I need some good advice some good advice to wear me crown 

I'm nervous can you help me 

Give me some good advice can never be wrong if I know it's you

Breathless

All these bruises keep you awake
I guess I'm just too tired to sleep
God only knows I'm too lost to cry
For kissing liars has kept me true 

I'll fall but I'll heal
So hold me tight cause I'm so lonely
I'll fall but I'll heal
So hold me tight cause I'm so lonely 

He hates so much his love he says
Inside it's dark I need to smile
He shouts so loud I never hear
That's why the truth's always abused
As I slip into unconsiousness
I never felt so much to blame 

As I slip into unconsiousness
I never felt so much to blame
