MONEY

She comes walking in with legs up to here
I slam a shot and then I finish my beer
In just one moment I could see it was clear
Who’s gonna take my money at the end of the night?

I check my watch
You check my wallet, my phone
You’re scattered everywhere I do this alone
I’m bored and tired
and it’s time to go home
Your personality is so overblown
I find a moment and I ask you to leave
I’m getting work done
I got tricks up sleeve
I know you want this so don’t make me say please
Who’s gonna take my money at the end of the night?

 

BLACK DRESS

It’s filling up in this private place
I just snuck in through the fire escape
I wanna dance from my head to my feet
She’s gonna leave me later on a rainy street
I sober up and I’m standing alone
I could go back to the warmth of my home
She’s sitting sultry at the end of the bar
I’m gonna try my hand at these lovers cards

Stoned
You’re so stoned
Why can’t you follow through
With daily tunes
Sweat
Just break a sweat
In her dirty room
She’s such a mess

We’re holding hands as we drive across town
There’s a hole in my pocket where the rich come to drown
She’s 24 and I’m coming of age
I may have lied to get back to her place
We’re hands and tongues in the dark of the room
But the death on her mind is leaving her blue
As I leave it’s all pleasantries
So here I am on this rainy street

Stoned
You’re so stoned
Why can’t you follow through
With daily tunes
Sweat
Just break a sweat
In her dirty room
She’s such a mess

She got her black dress on
Got her black dress on

Stoned
You’re so stoned
Why can’t you follow through
With daily tunes
Sweat
Just break a sweat
In her dirty room
She’s such a mess

 

VOICE FROM THE KIDS

As long as you cry
You got me on the ooo
Keeping me up all night
As long as you cry
But they said that the work would be worth the wait
You’re pacing and tired, pacing and tired
You got me on the ooo
Keeping me up all night

Woah it’s not me
Set it up
A table set for three
Woah it’s not you
Laying down
The colours inside my head

Ooo ooo ooo ooo
We got a voice from the kids
So we went go go go go shout
Ooo ooo ooo ooo
We got our first final kiss
So we went go go go go shout

We take it in turns
Stinging our eye’s
Watching the morning light
We take it in turns
But we’ll sleep through the day when we get the time
Equal a child, pacing and tired
Stinging our eyes
Watching the morning light

Woah it’s not me
Set it up
A table set for three
Woah it’s not you
Laying down
The colours inside my head

Ooo ooo ooo ooo
We got a voice from the kids
So we went go go go go shout
Ooo ooo ooo ooo
We got our first final kiss
So we went go go go go shout

The summers let me go

Ooo ooo ooo ooo
We got a voice from the kids
So we went go go go go shout
Ooo ooo ooo ooo
We got our first final kiss
So we went go go go go shout

 

FOUND ANOTHER

I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another
I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another

Well, alright
Choked out on the street
It’s the verdict from a video that kills the hope in me
Well, alright
My feet are getting burnt
While the ones in charge just argue over who owns half the earth

I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another
I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another
I believe we found, believe we found, believe we found each other
I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another

Well, alright
I don’t speak when I should
‘Cause the bug behind the screen came to dictate my livelihood
Well, alright
I sometimes feel alone
Then I sing my favourite record on my golden microphone

I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another
I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another
I believe we found, believe we found, believe we found each other
I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another

Well, alright
Money in the dirt
And I’m hoping that the pen will come and pull the trigger first
Well, alright
Roadblocks in my head
But the truth is that the road is just a winding one instead

I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another
I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another
I believe we found, believe we found, believe we found each other
I believe I found, believe I found, believe I found another

 

MY TOWN

I was breaking on you
Was breaking on
Youth was crashing on through
Was crashing on

I’m now missing all the young girls
Missing all the loud noise
Missing all the
Cold shores missing all the young girls
Missing all the loud noise
Missing all the,
alright!

About to start
With bloody fists
Hear a crash
Let’s reminisce
Alright, alright
Oh let’s drive a sunburnt road
You’re coming into my town
Turn the lights off, turn the lights off
This my town, baby this is my town

You were breaking on me
Were breaking on
Might be crushing on you
Be crushing on

I’m now missing all the young girls
Missing all the loud noise
Missing all the
Cold shores missing all the young girls
Missing all the loud noise
Missing all the,
alright!

About to start
With bloody fists
Hear a crash
Let’s reminisce
Alright, alright
Oh let’s drive a sunburnt road
You’re coming into my town
Turn the lights off, turn the lights off
This my town, baby this is my town

Can you feel the sweat
It’s in the air
Like the heart of savannah
But we just don’t care

I’m now missing all the young girls
Missing all the loud noise
Baby this is my town
Cold shores missing all the young girls
Baby this my town, baby this my town

 

SINGLE FILE GIRL

I don’t want to run in the race if the rabbit’s there
Easy son pick up the pace and you’ll make it there
Take a bit throw it in the oven you get more of it
Buy for you a new Sunday dress and I hope it fits

Crack my skull
Open up to see my soul
We’ll be cooking in the kitchen
Let’s go back now
There’ll be a day that these shakes will go away
I don’t wanna talk about it
Big spoon
Take the afternoon
Let’s take a walk, let’s take a walk
I know you’re sweet but my heart is half asleep
Take my wallet and my keys and go
Walking single file, girl

I don’t want to brown sugar coat but you got no friends
You can write the best version of how your story ends

Crack my skull
Open up to see my soul
We’ll be cooking in the kitchen
Let’s go back now
There’ll be a day that these shakes will go away
I don’t wanna talk about it
Big spoon
Take the afternoon
Let’s take a walk, let’s take a walk
I know you’re sweet but my heart is half asleep
Take my wallet and my keys and go
Walking single file, girl

 

MAN ON WIRE

You know he dreamed of his triumph in a chair at 17
A one man parade, a crime of artistry
And how the winds would blow and blow and blow
He took aim with a cable, he shot like an arrow

It’s what I wanted he taught me what I needed

All I know
It’s just another one man show
Walking on a wire
I will be walking on the wire
All I see
See you standing next to me
Walking on a wire
I will be walking on the wire

They send all the birds that sputter and tell the crowd
If the ground don’t catch you, we’ll swoop in and pluck you down
And how the winds would blow and blow and blow
I’ll relive the fable, that caused all my sorrow

It’s what I wanted he taught me what I needed

All I know
It’s just another one man show
Walking on a wire
I will be walking on the wire
All I see
See you standing next to me
Walking on a wire
I will be walking on the wire

Aaa - aaa - aaah

It’s what I wanted he taught me what I needed
It’s what I wanted he taught me what I needed
‘Cause when I thought it I lived it and I breathed it

All I know
It’s just another one man show
Walking on a wire
I will be walking on the wire
All I see
See you standing next to me
Walking on a wire
I will be walking on the wire

 

WHEN YOU GONNA LOVE ME?

When you gonna love me
Ooo ooo

Keep myself together
Mixing pain with pleasure
Trying to find whats me
This weight is like a river
My chest feels so much bigger
Drifts me off to sleep
Express myself tomorrow
I’m passionately shallow
At least that’s my excuse
Dawns another day
A cheap dreamless escape
Forever chasing you

When you gonna love me
Ooo ooo

Stops me on the corner
Almost fall before her
Shiver when I speak
My face is worn and distant
I’m so done resisting
Crumbled underneath

When you gonna love me

Ooo ooo

I’ve made my mistakes
I’ll do it your way
Your way
I’m for second takes
I’ll do it your way
Your way

So when you gonna love me
Ooo ooo ooo ooo
When you gonna love me
Ooo ooo ooo ooo
When you gonna love me
Ooo ooo ooo ooo
When you gonna love me
Ooo ooo ooo ooo
You’re never gonna love me

 

WAISTLINE

I was incomplete
We first locked eyes at the fall dance of ’93
Let’s all get down to Prince
My fingers felt sweaty
As I fumble with your corsage on my knees
We’re touching hands again
I was incomplete
The song’s so loud that I can only feel the beat
Let’s all get down to Prince
I know I’m no athlete
But I dance circles with my perfect two left feet
We’re holding hands again

Shake it off, girl I know you wanna love me
So take me by the, hoo

Rise
Take me by the waistline
Rise
And I will be loving you more

Almost felt brand new
I caught a shiver and I almost cracked in two
Let’s love like libertines
Almost felt brand new
I’m feeling dizzy from the beauty of this view
Let’s love like libertines
And if it’s IOU
We’re taking out the talking trash amongst the group
I wanna feel again

Shake it off, girl I know you wanna love me
So take me by the, hoo

Rise
Take me by the waistline
Rise
And I will be loving you more

Come on, come on
As long, a long
You take me by the waist and I’ll be loving you more

I was incomplete
It feels so hard to put away this memory
And throw away the keys
All the summer streets
Are soaking up and holding on to all this heat
I wanna feel again

RRise
Take me by the waistline
Rise
And I will be loving you more

FUTURE SONG

Whatever you want
Spoke aloud it’s a dirty word
Whatever you need
Take a breath I can’t understand
You said romance a dirty word
Whenever I can
Glamorize and get down

Future song
You said romance is a word
Glamorize and get down

If we’re only kidding then we’ll have to wait a while for it to bloom Glamorize and get down
If we’re only kidding then the dress is just as worthless as the groom Glamorize and get down

A little more cold
Caught your eye through an inch of glass
A little more bold
Take a breath
As fake as your tan
Film a take call it new romance
Whenever I can
Glamorize and get down

Future song
You said romance is a word
Glamorize and get down

If we’re only kidding then we’ll have to wait a while for it to bloom Glamorize and get down
If we’re only kidding then the dress is just as worthless as the groom Glamorize and get down
It’s all I ever wanted, what I wanted wasn’t near enough to you Glamorize and get down
So if we’re only kidding then I have to say that I’m just passing through

It’s all I ever wanted, what I wanted wasn’t near enough to you Glamorize and get down
So if we’re only kidding then I have to say that I’m just passing through
Glamorize and get down
Future song, you said romance is a word
Glamorize and get down
Future song, you said romance is a word
Glamorize and get down
