Lied 

I lied to you
From the bottom of my heart
I lied to you
I lied right from the start
When your word is truth
Some things should be left unsaid

I lied to you
Every time we were apart
I lied to you
Made it look like you’re the shark
Now I know the truth
And wish we could just start again
Now I wish we could, wish we could just start again

He lied to you
With his open, honest heart
He lied to you
Followed on what you did start
When your word is truth
Some things should be left alone

 

He lied to you
When you kept him in the dark
He lied to you
Couldn’t stand to be the shark
When you love the truth
It’s hard to just play along

Would you love, love to play along?
Would you love, love to play along?
Would you love, love, love, love to play along?
Would you love, love, love, love to play along?

Make It Up 

Make it up
If you can’t find the proof you need
“Make it up,” he said
“I fear the truth is leaving me.”
We are dragons, but we have lost our fire to fight
We are lovers, bathing in eachothers' light.

Make it up
if you can’t find your faith in us
“Make it up,” he begged
“before our hearts begin to rust.”
We are painters, but we have lost the skill to touch
We are children, our flower heads keep blowing off

 

Make it up
there’s honey where the maggots lie
“Oh make it up cheri
Speak to me the way you like.”
We are wilful hunters where the stones can fly
We are sinful, perfection is a blessed lie.

Make it up
I want to see the dots cohere
“Make it up my dear - I’ve lost the taste for loving fear.”
We are bubbles, deflating in our own image
We are lovers, tangled as we raise the bridge.

Never Ever

Baby, I think it's fair to say, 
You move me in a way no other lover could
Took my heart with your tender hands and it broke, oh it broke

And every other guy that I met along the way
Never knew all the words I wanted him to say
To take my breath and dispel it away, but you got it, oh you got it

That is why I call you my guy, 
with my hands all empty cos there ain't no price
for a heart like yours, they can't tag it, it's priceless, so priceless

Baby, I think you're really the shit, 
but I also think you can act like a dick
There’s something in the way you tell the truth,
it's delicious, so vicious

Lately, when I'm sitting in my car
and I think I may have let it roll too far,
your face comes to me, in blurry company
I can't chase it away in my windscreen

That is why I call you my guy, 
with my hands all empty cos there ain't no price
for a heart like yours, they can't tag it, it's priceless, so priceless 

 

Sometimes, when we get real mad, 
I think I've got to go, do something drastic,
like cut you from my life and never look back,
but it's easier said than done

And that time, when I pushed you away,
it was not because I didn't want you to stay,
it's just coz I'm not very good at being open, when you're open

And why, when I'm tangled up in history
and use a song to attempt to solve the mystery, 
does it have to be about anyone but you?

I never never never never never never never
loved something better better better better
Baby, you're the best thing I can cling to, 

No, I never never never never never never never
loved something better better better better
Baby, you're the best thing I can cling to

No I never, never, loved, better, this might be it

Too Lovely 

Go say goodnight to the bats, that
Sleep in your closet, under all your hats,
Close the coffin door, before
There’s a chill in this room, and we can’t get excited

Curl up in the space next to me,
He said to me, you were my friend, my enemy
But can’t you see, it was all just fictional, wasn’t it?
It had to be

I used to love you, just the way you were
You didn’t have to change; you didn’t have to find her
I used to love you, just the way you were
You didn’t have to change; you didn’t have to find her

Play dead in your head, there ain’t no lions there,
Stroking your face, licking your hair,
Go to that place, and forget that you love it,
Because it’s so wrong

Make up a speech, to preach, when they expose you,
Your face all made up, and make out,
It’ just delusion, a big confusion
(There is no truth it in)

 

I used to love you, just the way you were
You didn’t have to change; you didn’t have to find her
I used to love you, just the way you were
You didn’t have to change; you didn’t have to find her

And with every creak that this floor makes
It tears the hearth, it breaks the stake,
Until we’re just living prisoner’s of each other
Doesn’t it make it harder?

So in dismay and in disguise,
We bow our heads; we close our eyes,
Wishing that forgotten song had sang on
For a least one more chorus

I used to love you, just the way you were
You didn’t have to change; you didn’t have to find her
I used to love you, just the way you were
You didn’t have to change; you didn’t have to find her

Danger Blue

Hear, with your heart, the last song I’ll give to you
It may be quite simple, but that’s how I get into you

Dreamt of the time we nearly made it work
And you referenced the time we never made it work
It tears me away, from people I think are like you
It seals me away, from touching that danger blue

But no I don’t know what it’s like to be close to me
Words get stuck in my throat and perhaps I’m not easy to read
But I meant what I spoke when I tore you for twisting the truth
And I guess, nothing’s changed, because I am still writing for you

I’ll let go tonight, if you promise to keep me close
I’ll give one night if you swear that you loved me the most
But it can’t be so wrong, when diamonds look dull next to this
And it can’t be full on, risking a stolen kiss…

Darling I love you, it hurts to maintain the fort
But darling you’re trouble and I’m just a kid in a store
And we’ll make Mexico on the day that we fall into sync
Until then danger blue I’ll never break the link

And I’ll make Tuscany on the day that you give up the chase
Because darling, we’re friends, the rest will all fall into place

Thinking For Two

Maybe I'm wrong to behave like I do,
I guess I'm not used to thinking for two
I never lied, but I bent the truth,
too many times and there's no excuse

So I pick a fight and I stamp my feet,
pretend it's all you, we know that it's me
and you wait it out, it must be hard,
to love something more, the more that it scars

Baby, let's not compete, one of us will surely lose
and take this little truce and I'll try to think for two

 

 

Maybe I'll learn, I'll get there with time
I'll see what it's worth, to keep you onside
The sound and the fury, of two many fights
fades in the light of you by my side

So we will keep walking, we will play on
Gave you my word, I'll try and stand strong
Cos I'm not the best, at thinking for two
But maybe I'll try, with you

Baby, let's not compete, one of us will surely lose
and take this little truce and I'll try to think for two

Could She Be

He worked in cameras, she played guitar
Escaped in his cinema, she used her car
Loaded with lovers, he never asked much
Someone who’d get him, the chemical touch

But he’s never empty, he’s got his books
And she’s never lonely, she’s got her looks
Something was missing, I dare not ask
Where was her father, where was the spark?

Could she be something you care about?
Could he be someone to fill you out?
Could she be something you dream about?
There in the park, there in the park

She won’t let you down time after time, time after time
He will take control like a man, like a man
She won’t let you down time after time, time after time
He will take control like a man, like your man

He knew there lay magic that night in the grass
With cards to his chest he protected his heart
Wine filled their longing, words never paused,
they were meant to be somewhere but is this more

She won’t let you down time after time, time after time
He will take control like a man, like a man
She won’t let you down time after time, time after time
He will take control like a man, like your man

Beautiful Affair

A chair sat stiffly by the fire,
It felt the warmth but no desire
Still I longed to touch your mouth
My wooden arm tried to reach out

Single lives and single fates
All connected in one way
Life can sober up this love
Life looks tiny from above

And it could have been such a beautiful affair
But you were late and I was stuck somewhere
With our hands untied would you like to take a share
Oh it could have been such a beautiful affair

 

So we ambush in the dark,
Our weary minds, our anxious hearts,
Heat is something to embrace
Slowly, slowly not with haste.

As I sit a little stiff
I feel it’s better to resist
The lick of passion, the burning scar
For my own internal fire

And it could have been such a beautiful affair
But you were late and I was stuck somewhere
With our hands untied would you like to take a share
Oh it could have been such a beautiful affair
