MELANIE

Melanie

You're acting like it's meant to be

Melanie

The world is not your reverie

Otherwise

I'd be getting lost in your eyes

Or could it be you're just crazy?

 

I tried to tell you a lie

You're always getting so high

And now you're thinking

That I don't love you

You tried to take me along

I tried to make you belong

And now I'm singing your song

So slowly

 

Melanie

You're acting like it's meant to be

Melanie

The world is not your reverie

Otherwise

I'd be getting lost in her eyes

Or could it be you're just crazy?

 

Bum bum bum bum!

 

Melanie

You're acting like it's meant to be

Melanie

The world is not your reverie

Otherwise

I'd be getting lost in her eyes

Or could it be I'm just crazy?


January Blues

Oh, the smoke

Curls around the table

Slowly enough 

So you don’t see me fix my hair

 

You’re still here

Ever closer

Though you said

You’re wanted home

At twelve o’clock alone

So you can

 

Lie down thy raincoat and groove

It’s not too late to become

My January blues

 

Folded arms

False alarm

You’re indecisive, I know

You know that I’m the fool

And you’re the queen

I’ll have you know

This is no jest

It’s just my own volition 

So you can

 

Lie down thy raincoat and groove

It’s getting late

But not too late

To be my January blues

January blues

 

Now the rain has passed

No January will last

Through the next month

And the days

And the nights

Have left me thinking

Now I’m

Longing for the times

That you would

 

Lie down thy raincoat and groove

You were my January blues x3


COme On, COme On, Come On

Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on

I can’t feel it on my own

The night explodes, the sun is gone

And it makes me cry


Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on

Won’t you lure me in so slow

It makes me dumb, it makes me moan

So take your time


Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on

You left your Vans lying around

And kept me naked on the ground

It’s no surprise


And yes, we have the best of conversations when we’re talking in our sleep

And we’re tangled in the sheets

We’ll come undone tomorrow

And wonder why


Makes me cry


Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on, come on

Makes me cry

Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on

Makes me cry

Come on, come on, come on

Come on, come on


Vampira

I wanna see my girl

But she comes out only for the night time

I wanna see my girl

But she is only mine when we're upside down

 

In her room

She plays a minor tune on her ebony piano

She keeps the curtains drawn

Don't wanna burn those lips of red wine

 

In my glass

"Look me in the eyes," she tells me

Thigh to thigh

May October never be sunny

 

I wanna see my girl

But she comes out only for the night time

I wanna see my girl

But she is only mine when we're upside down

 

"Let me in," was all she said the first time

I'm a cautious man

A month ago

Now we're just fine

 

She sends me on my way when we wake up

She never asks me out for

 Lunch or a late cup of coffee in the morning

It's a bit unfair

But everyday I wanna

 

I wanna see my girl

I wanna see my girl in the sunshine

I wanna see my girl

But she is only mine when we're upside

 

I bring her flowers

But she puts them in the corner

And they're dead in a day

I wait for hours just to call on my baby

You got something to say?

 

When we're together on the bed

You take forever

When I know you're just brushing your teeth

The mirror in the bathroom on the thirteenth floor is shattered

And the only way to get there is by

Using a ladder

 

The moon is high

Winter winds are blowing

"Can I come inside?"

She's at my door and she's so fine

"Can we take a bath?" she asks,

"Is it big enough for the two of us?"

Lock the door, disappear in the mirror

Whisper in my ear, whisper in my

 

I wanna see my girl

I wanna see my girl in the sunshine

I wanna see my girl

But she is only mine when we're upside down

I wanna see my girl x3


Lonely Girl

She’ll be leaving

Tomorrow we'll know

Why I can’t hide the feeling

That she had before 

 

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

 

Once you were honest

And out of control

See you every morning

I was taking a stroll

 

When you grew up quick

And you knew it all

You made me sit

When I went for the door

 

Now it only takes weeks

And you’re giving out winks

And it’s making me think

While you’re making me crawl

 

She’ll be leaving

Tomorrow alone

Why I can’t hide the feeling

That she had before

 

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

 

Once I was a strange little boy

Living in a hurry

Now I am a little strange boy

Living with a worry

 

‘Cause the girl that I saw

Wasn’t happy at all

She was seemingly at

The epitome of

 

An Instagram daydream

Sipping a chai

But by the time that she’s finished

He’s making her cry

 

She’ll be leaving

Tomorrow alone

Why I can’t hide the feeling

That she had before

 

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

 

Now you’re alone

Haven’t felt this way in a while

You wish you were a child

Missing a home

 

But you’re waking up tired

If you wake up at all

Walking on a wire

Hoping to fall

 

She’ll be leaving

Tomorrow alone

Why I can’t hide the feeling

That she had before

 

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

 

She’ll be leaving

Tomorrow we'll know

Why she can’t hide the feelings

That she had before

 

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know

I’m in love with

The lonely girl

I used to know


Victim Of My Nature

 

Hard enough, it's not

My stomach in a knot

What's this look upon my face

Sorry honey, it's not your fault

 

I'm too young to be a man

But I'm old enough to land

This sticky situation

Goodbye to this relation

 

I want to do you right

You're such a beautiful creature

Why must I be

The victim of my nature

 

Yes, I'm still here

And so are you, you whispered in my ear

"Can I help you out?"

But it's no use, I'm lost in my head 

 

Why must I be the victim of my nature?

I want to do you right

You're such a beautiful creature

 

But my fear gets the best of me

I'm sorry for the rest of me

Wish there was something I could do

What if it's not me, maybe it's you

 

Why must I be the victim of my nature?

I want to do you right

But baby, I'm a failure

 

Tell me where's the restroom

And with a puzzled look you do

As I stumble for the door

"Don't worry I'll just be a minute!"

 

Key in my hand, running to my car

I may not be a man

But all I want to be is far

 

Far away from this place

This place where I have left

My dignity on the floor

Right next to my telephone

 

I can't go back, oh no!

No, no, no, no, no

There's no way I'll show my face

To another living soul

In another life I'll try

Maybe then I'll know

Maybe then I'll try

Maybe then I'll go


Revolve

 

Wish I was someone else

No, I'm not thinking of you

Just thinking 'bout myself

No, I'm not thinking of you

 

Should of had the time

To wake up in the morning

With you not by my side

When I wake up in the morning

 

List them in my head

The ways that I adore you

I list them in my head

The ways which I abhor you

Let leveling decide

Who am I to say no

or yes, you'd reply

Who am I to say so?

 

I'm guilty, I suppose

Of jumping to conclusions

With no one but myself

I come up with illusions

Knowing me I'll try

But it's all for nothing

Oh, it's awful boring

And I still get nothing

 

Through the tint of time

Your eyes are milky

Still, I wonder why

Why it never killed me to call when I'm alone

God bless the telephone

I wish you all the best

More than you will ever know

 

Yesterday's a lie

Life is but a movie in black and white

What an awful movie

We'll get in a fight, I'll punch the wall

Then you'll kiss me goodnight

Don't say goodnight

I was better off before I ever knew you 

Now I'm sitting on the floor

Lost in this daydream of you

Lost in a daydream of you 


By Genre

 —

As I wander through my world

And I trip and tie my shoe

I wish you weren't here

I've fallen from your shoelace

That you dangled from your window

Suspended till the wind blew

 

Count the records on my shelf

I've organized them all by genre

It's no use when you're around

All you ever choose is that

Which your little eye catches first

So I learned to move them around

 

Revolving in my soul

In rainbows you appear

I wish you weren't here

Now she's leaving home

But before I reach the phone

I stop to think it over

It can't be over, oh no

 

In the absence of my mind

And my shoes, and my car

I sit here idly

I delete my favorite voicemail

That you left me

Stub my toenail on my bed

I start to cry

 

Believe it or not

I rarely think about you

I wouldn't believe it, no

I think about you sometimes

I think about you often

I'm thinking about you now

 

As you wander through my door 

And start taking off your clothes

I go to choose a record

But trip on your shoelace

You beat me to the shelf

She said, she said

"Watch yourself"

I laid back on the floor

There's nothing I love more


As sure As My Sunburn Every Summer

 

As simple as words do come together

I can find a few to say

You're sleeping around through the day

But when the sun comes down you run

 

Without a motion, sound or look

You have me snagged

I'm on your hook

Yes, you have hung me high and dry

Only a fool would wonder why

 

Take a breath from me

She said, "No, but be happy,"

When I asked if this was love

When I asked if this was love

 

On a stormy afternoon

I'm on my mattress, where are you?

The smell of seventeen fills the room

Well it's something, ain't it cruel

 

As sure as my sunburn every summer

I'll make this something that it's not

And I'll be green against the wall

Now there's a mural of my thoughts

 

Take a breath from me

She said, "Give me everything!"

Is this love?

When I asked if this was love


Pretty Words, No More words

 

If you go, if you go

Take your time, take your time

Hurry up

But leave me mine

Don't take my time, please don't

If you stay, if you stay

 

What did I do?

What did I do to deserve you?

What did I do?

What the fuck did I do to deserve it?

But what do I know?

What do I know?

Know now

No not now, no not now

 

In the day, in the day

In my way, in my way

I had you

But now it's night, so try as I might

To hold you

But it don't change, it don't change

It don't change, it don't change

It don't change, no

It don't change, change a thing

 

Pretty words, no more words

No more words

Please don't stay x10


Midnight Blue

 

Me and midnight blue

I wish that midnight blue

Would stay awake till the morning

Slow down, where are you going

In such a hurry

 

Covered up by clouds

What reason have they got to get between

The sea of love that I have for you

And your ocean of stars

Whose depths are deep enough above me

 

You make no sound

But you seem as if you know me

But I'm feeling all too lonely these days

Maybe I belong among your waves

Midnight blue

 

It's a happy thought

To know you'll always be

Only you and no one but your blue

No matter what the sun will do

 

Tomorrow's on it's way

To meet the brand new day

But the day is not for us, my friend

And it troubles me

That I can't do a thing about it

 

You make no sound

But you seem as if you know me

But I'm feeling all too lonely these days

Maybe I belong among your waves

 

You make no sound

But you seem as if you know me

But I'm feeling all too lonely these days

Maybe I belong with you

Nowhere is a home without you

All I want to do is stare

Into your midnight blue


Give It up to Your Uncle

 

[guy] What are you thinking?

How do you feel?

I'm really just curious

Don't have to say anything

Early in the morning, late July

Taking up thirty months out of my day

 

[girl] What the hell is he doing?

Why's he looking at me like that?

He kind of giving me the creeps

He thinks I'm an angel

It really is sad

Give me some silence

You've been talking for weeks

 

[guy] On end I've been thinking about you

No words exchanged

But I know that you feel the same as I do

I can see it in your face

 

[girl] Oh, this is bad

He's getting the wrong ideas

I bet he thinks that he's in my dreams

What do I do?

How do I say that

I'd rather give it up to his uncle

 

[guy] What are you thinking?

How do you feel?

Doesn't matter what you say

It seems so surreal

Can't get over the fact that you're talking to me

 

[girl] Didn't you hear me?

Are you deaf or something?

Have you got a lump in your throat?

Now, listen I'm sorry but I've got to go

Maybe I'll call you, maybe I won't

Probably won't


Nada

 

What am I?

What am I at the center of me?

Louder than my thoughts

Soft enough to leave me shivering

Where do I exist?

Where am I in my consciousness?

Show me what it is

What is it that you hide from me?

 

If I myself am one

Who is always jumping the gun

By saying what I said

Put a bullet in my head

 

I try to pin it down

Only to pass the time locked in the ground

Something at the source

Is it you I see or do I see me in everything

 

If I myself am one

Who is always jumping the gun

By saying what I said

Put a bullet in my head

 

I may look for words

But I'll bite my tongue when you speak them to me

There really is no point

The way to you is through nothingness

 

If I myself am one

Who is always jumping the gun

By saying what I said

Put a bullet in my head x3


Mr. Linda

 

Take no chance on Monopoly money

Life in your hands

But it ain't no fun

To play the game but always run

It's raining outside

Why don't you go for a walk?

Slip into your shoes, but don't get them muddy

 

Mr. Linda, can't you see?

You've built it up inside your head

There's really nothing to be said

Now's the time before you're dead

 

Well come on Mr. Linda

We put flowers in your wall

 

I understand that it can't be easy

To change your ways and what you know

But just this once it's not for show

 

Here she comes again

You want to compliment her eyes

Say "How do you do?"

But you're too shy

All your life you've been

On the outside looking in

Never feeling anything

 

Come on, Mr. Linda

We put flowers in your wall

 

Can you feel it, Mr. Linda?

Can you feel it, Mr. Linda?

 

Come on, Mr. Linda

We put flowers in your wall

There goes Mr. Linda

Something changing in his eyes

Come on, Mr. Linda

We put flowers in your hair

There goes Mr. Linda

Something changing in his eyes


Fool

 

Stop

Wasted on a thought

Take it back

And you know already

Just what I’m gonna do

 

Don't

Think that you're so special

You’ve only really got here

Just before I left

 

All this really is

Just another moment

You’ll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

 

Girl

You shouldn't take your time

I’ll be stepping out of line for you

Running out

 

Cause how many times

Too many times I see your face

Look like the devil

And I can't erase

I’m running away

 

Cause all this really is

Just another moment

You'll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

Girl, what you waiting for?

 

Cause all this really is

Just what you say it is

A fucking little game

Between you and the whole wide world

 

Now

See you waiting for a train

While I’m wasting all our days together

Being a fool

 

Please

Don’t get sentimental

Nothing lasts forever

Don't you know

All we had was now

 

Cause all this really is

Just another moment

I’ll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

Girl, what you waiting for?

 

All this really is

Just another moment

I’ll be wishing for a kiss

Getting up and walking out the door

Girl, what you waiting for?


You Are Not Who You Are

Not so long ago

Just beyond the hilltops

Lived a

Girl I used to know

She spoke in rhyme

And never knew the time

 

Not so long ago

In her room made of ashes

Did I

Ask her for her name

She struck a match

And threw it at the wall

 

When you look to the skies

It is just a disguise

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

 

Not so long ago

The flowers that she gave me

Turned to

Crimson in the snow

Finding only silence

In the rain

 

Not so long ago

Did she

Linger like the smoke between

Every word I spoke

Surely, I could never understand

 

When you look to the skies

It is just a disguise

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

When you look to the stars

And you know you’re too far

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

 

Surely, I could x7

Understand

 

Just before the fall

She vanished through the branches

Of the trees

That knew it all

Surely, I could never understand

 

When you look to the skies

It is just a disguise

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are

When you look to the stars

And you know you’re too far

You are not who you are

When you’re not who you are


Now Is Better Than Never (But Not Now)

I want the nerve

To talk to you

Now is better than never!

Does it have to be so tough?

Now is better than never!

There’s something you should know

Now is better than never!

But everytime I try to say

It always just slips away

 

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

But not now x4

 

Today’s the day I talk to you

Now is better than never!

It’s just something that

I gotta do

Now is better than never!

I try not to act too cool

Now is better than never!

Cause then you’ll know that I’m

Just a fool

 

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

Now is

Now is better than

Better than never

But not now x8

 

I don’t know

What you like

What you do

Who you listen to x4

 

It’s not so hard

To talk to you

You like The Kooks

And you like me, too

I love the way you look at me

I love the way I feel with you

 

Now it’s

Now it’s better than

Better than ever

Now it’s

Now it’s better than

Better than ever

And it’s now x4


Stop It, I Say

Wearin’ my striped shirt

Sittin’ on the stairs

Messin’ with your hair

Starin’ at me with a cigarette

In your mouth

 

Stop it, I say

Smokin’ me out

Stop it, I say

Leavin’ me down

Stop it, I say

Freakin’ me out

Stop it, I say

Runnin’ about

 

I won’t wait

I won’t wait

I won’t wait

It’s too late

 

Chills ran down my spine

As I remembered the time

When she asked me to stay

With the moon on her face

And the youth in your eyes

To the warmth of your breath

Yet I was chilled by the loneliness

Of which you left

 

Stop it, I say

Leavin’ me down

Stop it, I say

You’re all over town

Stop it, I say

Freakin’ me out

Stop it, I say

I ain’t got a doubt

 

In my mind

In my mind

All the time

All the time

 

Time spills from a clock

I wonder, shall I knock

On her cocoon with some roses

Even if it’s locked

Or do I wait for the day

When she’ll ask me to stay

Once again you’ll betray me

And I’ll push you away

 

Stop it, I say

Leavin’ me down

Stop it, I say

Just don’t make a sound

(Shhh!)

Stop it, I say

Runnin’ about

Stop it, I say

Ain’t got a doubt

 

In my mind

In my mind

All the time

All the time

 

Wearin’ my striped shirt

Sittin’ on the stairs

Messin’ with your hair

Starin’ at me with a cigarette

In your mouth x3


Spice CHai

 

I don’t ever want to go to the beach

Don’t wanna deal with the sand between my toes

I want a life that's perfect and free

I want a life that’s all about me

 

Living like

“Damn, I think I might die”

Waking up at ten

My oh, my

Taking pictures of my

Spice chai

 

All I ever do

Look at myself

I got no time for nobody else

Cause what else is there to do when you look so slick

Take another good one with your selfie stick

 

One of these days

I think I might try

Giving up it all

Just saying goodbye

Cause all I really want

(Spice chai)

All I really, really want

 

I’m just sick and tired of this little life I lead

Baby

Come a little closer

And I’ll tell you what I need

 

Oh

I don’t ever wanna go to the beach

Don’t wanna deal with the sand between my toes

Taking pictures of my

Spice chai


Floating Down A River

 

Floating down a river

Looking for the sea

Guess who’s thinking of ya’

What if it was me?

 

Nothing really matters

Livin’ in a dream

Tear your tees to tatters

Get out of your routine

 

Tell me that you need me

Wanna be with you always

Kissin’ on my baby

Never felt like this before

 

So now they really on ya’

All your pretty things

Go crash my new Mercedes

Run it into me

 

Get your priorities in order

The things that are real

Ain’t the things you can touch

But the feelings that you feel

 

Tell me that you need me

Wanna be with you always

Kissin’ on my baby

Never felt like this before

 

Tell me that you need me

Driving with the windows down

Kissin’ on my baby

Never felt like this before


What She Knows

Hey! Oh! x7 

She likes to run around

Chasing shadows and

Reflections off the ground

But what she’s looking for

It can’t be found

Because it’s under the ground

 

He’s always standing here

Lookin’ so, so superior

Oh, but he needs to learn

Oh, that he’s just a clown

 

She doesn’t have a clue

Of what’s going on around

But it may be getting loud

So loud

She doesn’t care of

What we think about her

All she knows is that

She’s found it now

 

We like to run around

Always forgetting how we came about

Never regretting how we look or sound

Oh, but it’s gonna get loud

 

She doesn’t have a clue

Of what’s going on around

Oh, but it may be getting loud

So loud

She doesn’t care of

What we think about her

All she knows is that

She’s found it now

 

She likes to run around

Chasing shadows and

Reflections off the ground

But what she’s looking for

It can’t be found

Because it’s under the ground

 

She doesn’t have a clue

Of what’s going on around

Oh, but it may be getting loud

So loud

She doesn’t care of

What we think about her

All she knows is that

She’s found it

All he knows is that

He’s found it

All we know is that

We found it now


Green Eyes

Look at these flowers I brought you

Got caught out in the rain

Blue eyes turning to green now

I still love you all the same

Love you all the same

 

Found myself just wandering

Across my lonely mind

You left me here with nothing

Taking all my time

On my way away from everything

That time sure looks good to me now

 

Devil and the deep blue seas

Ahead of me

Drown um’ in the orange moon

My memories

On my way away from everything

So far that I’m losing it now

 

Losing my

Everything I thought was mine

Losing

Just to have it one more time

Losing

Maybe if I lose my mind


Wednesday, Nov 31

Nothing never changes

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

Can’t help but wonder

 

I met you in the cornerstone

Walked around until I drove you home

Oh, and the next day

Sweet December came

 

Nothing ever changes, babe

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

I can’t help but wonder

 

I left you in the cornerstone

Walked around until I drove you home

Oh, and the next day

Sweet December came

 

Nothing never changes, babe

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

I can’t help but wonder

Can’t help but wonder

 

I met you in the cornerstone

Walked around until I drove you home

Oh, and the next day

Sweet December came

 

Nothing ever changes, babe

Nothing ever stays the same

Tomorrow and the next day

Never knowing what they used to

I can’t help but wonder

Can’t help but wonder x5


Watchtower

 

I can’t recall

What it was I felt

When you left me standing here

But something in

Your soul tonight

Has got me filled

With the fear of

 

Summer night, summer breeze

The sound of your voice

My heart to freeze

Where do we go?

What do we do?

Oh, but for one more taste of you

 

You’ve been such a waste of me!

You’ve been such a waste of me!

If only I’d turned from your gaze

In the first place

 

I was waiting by the watchtower

For you to come my way

But from the darkness

You call my name

Darling, you led me astray

 

Too many time you summon me

And I obey

Oh, I obey

But tonight I won’t be your pray

I’ll walk away

I’ll walk away

 

You’ve been such a waste of me!

Oh, you’ve been such a waste of me!

If only I turned from her gaze

In the first place

 

Yeah! x4

 

Even now I can’t recall

Just what it was that made me fall

For you

 

You’ve been such a waste of me! X8

If only I turned from your gaze

In the first place


Cigars

So here you are again

Racing in and out

Of my mind tonight

The thought of you

Wells up within me

The scent of her hair

I’m only alive for the moment so

Why must I try

To relive all the times you’ve forgotten

You were still on my mind

 

Just when I think that I know for certain

You return to tow my heart away

Back to a place where I swear I’d forgotten

Where everything seems a dream

 

Please

Let me take a breath now

Or just

Smother me with your lies

Doing it again, babe

Just go ruin it again

 

Doing it again

Doing it again

Losing it again x7

 

I get up but I haven’t yet woken

Will I find myself?

The pressure pushes us

But the lies burn deeper

My loneliness strives to survive

 

We keep on straying into the darkness

That’s disguised as the light

At the fucking end

Of the tunnel

 

We sing the same songs

Asking where we see ourselves today

Sally Tuesday

Said it “wasn’t serious anyway”

Sally Tuesday

Spoke a lot of things that she don’t know

Sally Tuesday

Dragged my little heart back to Friday

And with it she invited

All the sickness that she calls a game

 

No matter how I try

Just don’t know the reasons why

She abuse me

Oh, she use me

So simple to see now

It’s just so easy to allow

She abuse me

Oh, she use me

 

Sally Tuesday

Really didn’t think I was serious

Sally Tuesday

Really didn’t think I was serious

 

Sally Tuesday

Dragged my little heart back to Saturday

And with it she invited

All the others she’s requited

It’s a shame

 

She broke my guitar

You know, she took it too far

She abuse me

Oh, she use me

She took the keys to my car

Who does she think that she are?

She abuse me

Oh, she’s a movie

 

Sally Tuesday

Sally Tuesday

Come on, Sally Tuesday

Sally Tuesday

Come on, Sally Tuesday

Sally Tuesday

She’s my Sally anyday

Please stop myself

From doing any wrong

But if I stop myself

Does that make it right

 

It’s been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

But what have I got now?

What have I got now?

What have I got now?

 

Why does it take so long

To find my way with words

But if I wait too long

Will you still pretend?

 

It’s been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

But what have I got now? x2

What have I got now?

What have I got now?

 

If I told you then

You know I never would

But if I told you now

Would you still be my friend?

 

It’s been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

But what have I got now? x2

 

Been too hard living

Without my mind

All I thought it would take was time

Take time
