IN BETWEEN DAYS
Yesterday I got so old I felt like I could die Yesterday I got so old It made me want to cry Go on go on Just walk away Go on go on Your choice is made Go on go on And disappear Go on go on Away from here And I know I was wrong When I said it was true That it couldn't be me and be her
Inbetween without you Without you Yesterday I got so scared I shivered like a child Yesterday away from you It froze me deep inside Come back come back Don't walk away
Come back come back Come back today Come back come back Why can't you see?
Come back come back Come back to me And I know I was wrong When I said it was true That it couldn't be me and be her Inbetween without you Without you
A nightmare of you Of death in the pool Wakes me up at quarter to three I'm lying on the floor of the night before With a stranger lying next to me A nightmare of you Of death in the pool I see no further now than this dream The trembling hands of the trembling man Hold my mouth To hold in a scream I try to think To make it slow If only here is where I go If this is real I have to see I turn on fire And next to me... It looks good! It tastes like nothing on earth It looks good! It tastes like nothing on earth Its so smooth it even feels like skin It tells me how it feels to be new It tells me how it feels to be new A thousand voices whisper it true It tells me how it feels to be new And every voice belongs Every voice belongs to you
Tell me who doesn't love What can never come back You can never forget how it used to feel The illusion is deep It's as deep as the night I can tell by your tears you remember it all I am paralyzed by the Blood of Christ Though it clouds my eyes I can never stop How it feels to be dry Walking bare in the sun Every mirage I see is a mirage of you As I cool in the twilight Taste the salt on my skin I recall all the tears All the broken words I am paralyzed by the Blood of Christ Though it clouds my eyes I can never stop When the sunset's glow drifts away from you You'll no longer know If any of this was really true at all...
SIX DIFFERENT WAYS
This is stranger than I thought Six different ways inside my heart And every one I'll keep tonight Six different ways go deep inside I'll tell them anything at all I know I'll give them more and more I'll tell them anything at all I know I'll give the world and more They think I'm on my hands and head This time they're much too slow Six sides to every lie I say It's that American voice again "It was never quite like this before Not one of you is the same..." This is stranger than I thought Six different ways inside my heart And everyone I'll keep tonight Six different ways go deep inside
Go go go! Push him away No no no! Don't let him stay... He gets inside to stare at her The seeping mouth The mouth that knows The secret you Always you A smile to hide the fear away Oh! smear this man across the walls Like strawberries and cream It's the only way to be Exactly the same clean room Exactly the same clean bed But I've stayed away too long this time And I've got too big to fit this time...
THE BABY SCREAMS
Heaven Give me a sign Waiting for the sun to shine Pleasure fills up my dreams And I love it Like a baby screams It's so useless How can you be proud When you're sinking into the ground Into the ground fills up my dreams And I love it Like a baby screams Couldn't ask for more you said Take it all And strike me Strike me dead Waiting again Waiting Like I waited before Waiting again Waiting here for nothing at all Heaven fills up my dreams And I love it Like a baby screams Couldn't ask for more you said Couldn't ever let it end Take it all Take it all And strike me dead Heaven! Heaven!
CLOSE TO ME
I've waited hours for this I've made myself so sick I wish I'd stayed asleep today I never thought this day would end I never thought tonight could ever be This close to me Just try to see in the dark Just try to make it work To feel the fear before you're here I make the shapes come much too close I pull my eyes out Hold my breath And wait until I shake... But if I had your faith Then I could make it safe and clean If only I was sure That my head on the door was a dream I've waited hours for this I've made myself so sick I wish I'd stayed asleep today I never thought this day would end I never thought tonight could ever be This close to me But if I had your face I could make it safe and clean If only I was sure That my head on the door Was a dream
A NIGHT LIKE THIS
Say goodbye on a night like this If it's the last thing we ever do You never looked as lost as this Sometimes it doesn't even look like you It goes dark It goes darker still Please stay But I watch you like I'm made of stone As you walk away... I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night A witch hunt for another girl For always and ever is always for you Your trust The most gorgeously stupid thing I ever cut in the world Say hello on a day like today Say it every time you move The way that you look at me now Makes me wish I was you It goes deep It goes deeper still This touch And the smile and the shake of your head... I'm coming to find you if it takes me all night Can't stand here like this anymore For always and ever is always for you I want it to be perfect Like before... I want to change it all I want to change
When you screw up your eyes When you screw up your face When you throw out your arms And keep changing your shape Taste the taste in your mouth Taste the taste on your tongue On the film on your eyes of what I've become What do I do when you screw up your eyes? What do I do when you screw up your face? What do I do When you throw out your arms Fall on the floor And keep changing your shape? Jump right into your mouth? Jump around on your tongue? And the film on your eyes of the way I've become Makes me sick at the way that I try Anything in the world To impress that I'm doing this Only for you
I am slowing down As the years go by I am sinking
So I trick myself Like everybody else The secrets I hide Twist me inside They make me weaker So I trick myself Like everybody else
I crouch in fear and wait I'll never feel again...
If only I could remember Anything at all
