SPEECHLESS
Silence cast a spell on me, and leaves me standing cold again
Hollow like my heart, it’s hollow like my heart
Silence leaves me cold again
Smash and grab the hit and run
Oh it could have happened to anyone
Silence cast a spell on me
And leaves me speechless
Harsh words will fall gently to the floor
Tearing me apart ’til I’m broken.
’Til I’m broken like my heart lies broken
And I’m speechless to the core when I’m broken
Shhh Shhh Shhh
Silence took all the words away
And the laughter has died into space
But does it echo in your heart?
Can you still hear your heart?
Can you still hear when
you no longer speak?
Smash and grab the hit and run
Oh it could have happened to anyone
Silence cast a spell on me
And leaves me speechless
Harsh words will fall gently to the floor
Tearing me apart ’til I’m broken
’Til I’m broken like my heart lies broken
And I’m speechless to the core when I’m broken
And I’m speechless to the core when I’m broken
Harsh words will fall
So gently to the floor

STARS
My heart is heavy, my little one, even the bluest sky and the warmth of the sun
can’t take away this load, I walk on my own, carry the weight alone
All of my dreams will be about you, my love
All the voices, all the voices, can’t sing no more
All my hands, all my hands don’t play like that no more
So don’t ask me to dance, don’t ask me to dance
I see all the stars around me, but they don’t shine, they don’t shine
I see all the stars around me, but they don’t shine, they don’t shine
This guy says, I play live, yeah I play for real, I play for real
I have a lump in my throat and swollen eyes
I miss you, baby, miss your ghost
What you used to be haunts me still
I long to feel the same, without the pain
All my heroes, all my heroes are ghosts
All my heroes, all my heroes are ghosts
And all the voices, all the voices can’t sing no more
All my hands, all my hands don’t play like that no more
I see all the stars around me, but they don’t shine, they don’t shine
I see all the stars around me, but they don’t shine
’Cause they don’t know how to shine
to shine, to shine, to shine. . . .
Shine, shine, shine. . . .
Come on and shine, shine, come on and shine
You will always shine, shine so bright.

LAST GOODBYE
I don’t wanna leave
I’m not sure I should stay
You find it easier this way
So we’ll pack up all our things
You’ve some of mine and I’ve some of yours
We’re going different ways
Is this our last goodbye?
Is this our last goodbye?
Goodbye
You know I tried and I tried,
I think of all the tears I cried
Now I’m through crying
Oh, when the world is crashing in on me,
I can’t get by
without some peace of mind,
You gave me no peace of mind
All I want for you to say is, Can I stay, spend the night?
Press my head against your chest
Tell me once again
How far we came to meet
And how you’ll never leave
How you’ll never leave
So is this our last goodbye?
So is this our last goodbye?
So is this our last goodbye?
So is this our last goodbye?
Goodbye

MY LOVER’S TIE
Stepping down the stairs of my house,
TV ringing with a familiar show
But it’s inside and I’m outside,
but I’m outside and it’s inside now
Draw my coat up against this October wind.
Well I take my first step down the stoop I know so well.
Siren bleeding, siren bleeding, siren bleeding
In the corner, there’s a man there, wearing my tie
Wearing my tie, the tie I gave to my lover
And I’ve felt this before, well I’ve seen it before and I’ve touched it before
well I’ve tasted it before and I’ve smelt it before and I’ve touched it before and I
Today I was walking, I passed by Jesse James’ bar
Well I saw it, it had a coat on, he was brushing his hair with his hand
I thought I felt him step into my path
Oh I gasped in the air, I could still taste and smell your breath.
In the corner, there’s a man there wearing my tie
Wearing my tie, the tie I gave to my lover
And I’ve felt this before, well I’ve seen it before and I’ve touched it before
well I’ve tasted it before and I’ve smelt it before and I’ve touched it before, and I
And I’ve felt this before, well I’ve touched it before and I’ve tasted it before
and I’ve known it before and I’ve felt this before
and I’ve touched it before and I’ve tasted, I’ve tasted, I’ve tasted it before.

THE SWING
You think I’m silly but I could climb a thousand stars
if I close my eyes, these eyes, some of the time
see past the moon if I open wide, least I try.
I have black days where I can’t see a thing
Push me higher, push me higher I might fly
On the swing my head is back, the wind is in my hair.
It’s tangled and torn, it’s tangled and torn
I’m laughing, crying and screaming.
I’m laughing, crying and screaming more
Dragging my feet on the ground at the moment,
but sway back and forth in the hopes of a great gush of wind
Oh pick me back up. Or a kite overhead
to dangle from where my body feels lighter
You know I’m there when the leaves blow in circles
and dance in the air, well in your hair
When the air itself smells crisp and fresh
but with mischief on its breath like Halloween
When every limb is filled with the anticipation
of a first kiss, in the eyes of a child
who’s never broken a vow
Well I hear you laughing a mile away at how careless I’ve been
I don’t look for nets any more,
don’t worry, don’t worry.
I hear you, you’re laughing a mile away.
On the swing my head is back, the wind is in my hair.
It’s tangled and torn, it’s tangled and torn
I’m laughing, crying and screaming.
I’m laughing, crying and screaming.
We’re on the swing now
We’re on the swing now
We’re on the swing now.

GREEN
This is one of those days where I can’t seem to do anything
Everything I attempt, I am throwing at the wall
Green growing inside, twisting ’round, wrapping ’round my veins
Engulfing me, this feeling of, I’ll kill you, but I’ll kill her first
This pain, it only curses the chosen few, and I’m your chosen one
Pin my heart, on the wall next to hers, that she gave you cut it out
I long to see me pinned to your wall
I’ll be your pin-up doll, stare at me all red
Cut this green, it’s twisting round my veins
You lied you lied
You lied you lied
You lied you lied
Princes never lie, tell tall tales, how wide?
This is one of those days where I can’t seem to do anything at all
and everything I attempt I end up throwing at the wall
You look at me with that look that says I love you baby,
but man you’re just so crazy
So I scream in the back of your van want to hit something hard
’cause no matter what I do, it’s just one of those days,one of those days
Green growing inside my veins, twisting around
Engulfing me, this feeling I’ll kill you, but I’ll kill her first
This pain, it only curses the chosen few, and I’m your chosen one
I’ll pin my heart on the wall next to hers that she gave you cut it out.
I long to see me pinned to the wall
Then I’ll be your pin-up
Cut this fucking green, it’s twisting round my veins
You lied you lied
You lied you lied
You lied you lied
You lied you lied
But princes don’t tell tales
You lied you lied
You lied you lied
You lied you lied

THE KISS
You want it all, but feel torn from seven sides.
Each steals a part, take a little more
’Til I run away, runaway, retreat
in my crab-like shell. I want someone stronger than me
I want you to stop me running, running.
I’m always running
He says he’s a feminist, I say they’re all hypocrites,
each twist each lies in my feeble back
I don’t want you to insist
Uh oh here we go again. My baby Baudelaire has got me by the neck.
He feels my divine misery of being in love with the kiss
So you’ve got me by the wrist, don’t expect me to believe you.
Seems just the other day, my friend Geoff said to me
I always want what I can’t have. I want you the way I want you.
I always want what I can’t have.
Uh oh here we go again, my baby Baudelaire has got me by the neck,
he feels my divine misery, of being in love with the kiss
He’s got an eye for maidens. Oh, we’ll do our last dance
back to the Bridge of Sighs
So you’ve got me by the wrist, don’t expect me to believe you.
So you’ve got me by the wrist, don’t expect me to believe you.
You’ve got me by the wrist, don’t expect me to believe you.
So you’ve got me by the wrist, don’t expect me to believe you.

COMES IN WAVES
Kiss another week goodbye
You’ll be out watching a
different kind of girl tonight
Smoke too much, drink too much.
God knows I’ll cry
Write it down in little books, get it all wrong that’s right
You’ll become the golden boy, I’ll be your faithless wife
You could almost make me believe your lies
With your fancy words and tears on cue
Is that what they gave you, boy at university
a degree in making me cry?
I’m okay, are you okay? Why are you crying?
I’m okay, are you okay? Why are you crying?
Yeah
Ooh hey hey. . . . Comes in waves
Ooh hey hey. . . . Comes in waves
Ooh hey hey
Calm before the storm, he puts you in a box
I’m hanging on the edge
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves
You could almost make me believe your lies
You always play the victim well
But I’m the one popping pills
Since I met you
You’ve got me thinking that I’m
Crazy
Tell your friends I’m a mess
Tell them I’m crazy
Tell your friends I’m a mess
Tell them I’m crazy
Yeah
Ooh hey hey. . . .Comes in waves
Ooh hey hey. . . .Comes in waves
Ooh hey hey
Calm before the storm, he puts you in a box
I’m hanging on the edge
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves
Now the pleasure is a pain
Now the pleasure is a pain
I’m beginning to think
it’s a little unhealthy
but I keep coming back for more
I couldn’t hate you this much darlin
if I really didn’t love you
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves
Now he tells you that he loves you
and that’s supposed to make it okay
He tells you that he needs you
and that he’ll never go away
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves
I’m okay are you okay? Come in waves

MAN I WORSHIP YOU
I could be so strong, when my head is mine
He tells me what to do
I was that girl laughing ’fore like you laughed at me too
Man I worship you
When I look to free myself, I do so, with another man, with another man
This man, he’s a poet, he says he dreams my dreams
In this world, I’m encased in a frame, I didn’t choose.
Worship you
Frame don’t fit the picture
it’s too little, too little
Hah aah, You spoil my picture
She’s so strong
She’s so strong
She’s so, she’s so, she’s so, she’s so
Strong
Man I worship you
When I look to free myself, I do so, with another man, with another man
This man, he’s a poet, he says he dreams my dreams
Well there is never enough time time to change suit your needs, oh
Suspenders snap, cease to breathe, Oh object of desire
Don’t look, don’t speak, just sit pretty my pretty girl
She’s so, she’s so
I’m not very weak,
I’m not very weak
I could stand I could stand, Ooh
I could stand I could stand, Ooh
I could stand, I could stand on my own two feet like she does
Oh I don’t need a man, I don’t need this man
I don’t need a man
Man I worshipped you
Man I worshipped you
Man I worshipped you
Man, man, man
