Lyrics

Dare to Dream Small


As the days get short and the red leaves fall
We find something warmer to wear
The clouds are grey and it smells like rain
There’s autumn chill in the air

When the ground is wet and my feet are cold
And my hair hasn’t dried, then I remember
Summer inside
There’s summer inside

The storm is heavy the windows might break
But my heart remains intact
It might take a while to get out of here
But our love is a fact

When the frozen river hugs our house
And the wind sings in the night, then I remember
Summer inside
Summer inside

When the rays flow over the mountain
It’s springtime’s first hello
This is our message
There’s only a short while to go
Only a short while to go

The world seems brighter and better now
With you I enjoy my days
Everything’s somehow easier
With sunlight on your face

When the soul is dressed in summer clothes
And it needs nowhere to hide

Then I know it’s summer
Then I know it’s summer
Then I know it’s also summer outside
It’s summer outside

Then I know it’s also summer outside
It’s summer outside
You and I
In the picture on the side
We are young it’s you I recognise
Walk with me through the shadows ‘til I see
A better view reflected in your eyes

Rain may come
Put your good shoes on
We are the only ones
Reel me in
I love the way you feel against my skin
Take me dancing

The days were long
The world was over-lit
And no one ever wondered is this it?
Through the years with you I faced my fears
We are two pieces that just fit

Rain may come
Put your good shoes on
We are the only ones
Reel me in
I love the way you feel against my skin
Take me dancing

We’re collecting our stories to tell
Some are sad, some end well
You can’t always see
The wave or unexpected turn
Together we will learn

Rain may come
Put your good shoes on
We are the only ones
Reel me in
I love the way you feel against my skin

Rain may come
Put your good shoes on
We are the only ones
Reel me in
I love the way you feel against my skin
Take me dancing
It felt like I’d lost the key
To my own happiness
Then you came to me
Like a melody
Not dressed to impress

You saw all the little things
Broke through my shell
Oh the joy it brings
And now my heart sings
Pretty well

You’ve changed my tune
And it’s not a day too soon

Maybe we could grow old
Go where we want
I’d have you to hold
Never get cold

At the end of the day
If I go off track
You’ll show me the way
Bring me back

You’ve changed my tune
And it’s not a day too soon

The truth that you share with me
It sounds like a song
Like a symphony
I have found my key
I belong

You’ve changed my tune

Maybe we could grow old
Go where we want
I’d have you to hold
Never get cold

At the end of the day
If I go off track
You’ll show me the way
Bring me back

You’ve changed my tune
And it’s not a day too soon
I don’t need a reason
Why should I explain
There’s no way of pleasing
We’re not all the same
I’ve learned not to listen
When nothing’s to be gained
I knew who I was all along

Round and round they go
Are they ever done?
Stay until the last rays of the sun

And we’re a world away
From anyone
That’s where we’ve got to stay
Living our own way
Answer to no one
Liking what we’ve done
‘Til the last rays of the sun

Put one and one together
When I found you
Since us the weather
The weather has been good
Started something new
A world just made for two
Where it only rains when it should

Round and round they go
Are they ever done?
Stay until the last rays of the sun

And we’re a world away
From anyone
That’s where we’ve got to stay
Living our own way
Answer to no one
Liking what we’ve done
‘Til the last rays of the sun
Many had told me and tried to explain
It would feel like the sunshine and summer rain
But nothing prepared me for you

I’ve always been careful afraid of heights
Never a fan of the darkest nights
But I’ll jump from star to star with you

With you I keep making the same old mistake
Maybe I don’t want to learn
I’ve made promises plans
I was on the right track
But you were a different turn
Don’t thank me for being kind
If you’re leaving me behind

I never thought I was very strong
But then I look back at the times
I have tried to hold on
Hold on to you

My roots lie deep, you’re still up in the stars
This kind of love will always leave a scar
It’s true, scar in the shape of you

With you I keep making the same old mistake
Maybe I don’t want to learn
I’ve made promises plans
I was on the right track
But you were a different turn
Don’t thank me for being kind If you’re leaving me behind
Don’t you feel just a little light headed
Running around the truth
After all this time, after all my tears
You can no longer hide behind your youth
Don’t thank me for being kind
If you’re leaving me behind

With you I keep making the same old mistake
Maybe I don’t want to learn
I’ve made promises plans
I was on the right track
But you were a different turn
Don’t thank me for being kind
If you’re leaving me behind
Violet hair
A made-up smile
To see the truth
Will take a while

Sadness shows
On the young face
She takes her first steps
Into to a new place

Scars will heal
Quicker than the heart
She’s searching for
That missing part

I guess her beauty built a wall
She happily hides behind
And someday she will show them all
She truly is one of a kind

Turn it on turn it on
Let your light fill the room
This is where you belong
You’ll see it soon

Standing tall
Her tears have dried
She’s coming out
On the other side

A different life about to start
Her smile is coming
From the heart

Scars will heal
Quicker than the heart
She’s searching for
That missing part

I guess her beauty built a wall
She happily hides behind
And someday she will show them all
She truly is one of a kind

Turn it on turn it on
Let your light fill the room
This is where you belong
You’ll see it soon
He wants to be the underdog
So people look at him and say
Life must be an uphill walk
How do you get through the day?

They want to take him in their arms
Want to know that he’s okay
Give him tea and sympathy
Make his troubles go away

Feeds off them feeling sorry
Forgets the silver spoon
And the fortune locked away
That could buy the moon

And it’s always a reach away
And it’s always a rainy day

His broken heart is always aching
The tiny glass is never full
There’s a way you should behave
He should know, he made the rules

Feeds off them feeling sorry
Forgets the silver spoon
And the fortune locked away
That could buy the moon

And it’s always a reach away
And it’s always a rainy day
Always too far away
For the underdog
They say it’s better to love
And lose than to never love at all
As she cries in my arms I wonder
How on earth to break the fall

Is it better not to know?
Is it better not to know?

I heard the whispers and always thought
It’s really not my place
I couldn’t have imagined
All this sadness on her face

Is it better not to know?
Is it better not to know?

Sadness makes you live and relive
How it all went wrong
Drown your darkest fears with tears
We can’t always be strong

Is it better not to know?
Is it better not to know?
You sit by the side of the road
In seaside sandals and a winter coat
Surrounded by trees overgrown
With your plastic chair, on your own

You’re not looking happy or sad
You don’t look lonely, you don’t look mad

Is there someone who sleeps by your side at night?
Is there some place that you call your own?
Is there someone who wants you to hold them tight?
Do they know where you go
When you sit by the side of the road?

I don’t see a car or a bike
I wonder how you did arrive
So far away from it all
I hope you have a friend to call

Watching the world from your cloud
You don’t look up or down and out

Is there someone who sleeps by your side at night?
Is there some place that you call your own?
Is there someone who wants you to hold them tight?
Do they know where you go
When you sit by the side of the road?

So serene
What do you know?
Talk to me
What do you know that we don’t?
What do you know that we don’t?

Is there someone who sleeps by your side at night?
Is there some place that you call your own?
Is there someone who wants you to hold them tight?
Do they know where you go
When you sit by the side of the road?
Wrapped in a jumper
Few sizes too big
Still smells a little bit like you
That’s why I wear it
Not because it’s green
If I was a colour I’d be blue

Without direction
I start to walk
They say it’s easy to find
I’m sure that’s true
Not looking for squirrels or birds
I’m going there looking for you

We never went to Fineshade Forest
You always said we should
How can something so pretty make me sad
We never went to Fineshade Forest
I always thought we would
And now I miss the love we never had

Comfort in a blanket
Of rusty leaves
As I sit down on the forest floor
It’s the moment I’ve been waiting for
Think I’m ready to close this door

We never went to Fineshade Forest
You always said we should
How can something so pretty make me sad
We never went to Fineshade Forest
I always thought we would
And now I miss the love we never had

I whisper the words I came to say and
I feel less alone
So I follow the signs to the walkway
Its time to go home

We never went to Fineshade Forest
You always said we should
How can something so pretty make me sad
We never went to Fineshade Forest
I always thought we would
And now I miss the love we never
We never had
Why reach for the stars
When their light will find you?
You could conquer the world
But then what would you do?

So dream small, dream small
And you might find what you’re looking for
It’s true, there’s more
If you dare to dream small

You could look for perfection
But you’d wait for the flaw
You could have everything
But you’d only want more

So dream small, dream small
And you might find what you’re looking for
It’s true, there’s more
When you dare to dream small

Food on the table
Roof over our head

Just dream small, dream small
And you might find what you’re looking for
It’s true, there’s more
When you dare to dream small

Dream small
Dream small
I want this to be goodbye
Don’t want you to try anymore
It should have come easily
Merged into you and me by now

Without all the work
Some pieces just don’t fit
Let me leave
Baby this is it

I’m happy to be the one who got away
I’ll come back for the rest
Save your love and make somebody’s day
I wish you all the best

I still make tea for two
Expecting to see you there
Thought I’d be fine
Thought I wouldn’t care by now

I don’t want you back
It wasn’t good enough
I chose to leave
Still this is tough

I’m happy to be the one who got away
I’ll come back for the rest
Save your love and make somebody’s day
I wish you all the best

HOME


You warm me up when the world gets cold
With words that don’t get old
When nothing’s being said
They echo in my head

Moments hidden in routine
Nicer than they seem
When you look at me
With eyes blue as the sea

Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you’re around
Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you’re around

In my own way I always knew
I belonged with you
Ready for the memories
Of what was yet to be

Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you’re around
Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you’re around

Your silhouette against the sun
Burnt into my memory
I knew you’d always be the one
Walking next to me

Sunrise it always feels like
Sunrise when you’re around
Sunrise it always feels like sunrise
Sunrise when you’re around
Our flag is his coat
As he marches
Down the middle of the road
We slowly walk behind him
As we try to understand this game
Towards the sun
This fight has only just begun
There ain’t many things
He wouldn’t do for this place

Somewhere in between the trees
Where the grass is green
Lives a man with his queen
Somewhere in between the trees
In a world that no one sees
He’s growing his own army of bees

Moving too fast
For the magic to last
On his watch the world
Moves a different pace
We all have space
His anchor went down
Kept his boots on the ground
Unaffected by the race taking place
All around

Somewhere in between the trees
Where the grass is green
Lives a man with his queen
Somewhere in between the trees
In a world that no one sees
He’s growing his own army of bees

He came from far away
Outside everyday
And his rooster thinks it’s morning all the time
Tobacco in the air
Whenever he is near
And I’m not sure if the dog is his or mine

Somewhere in between the trees
Where the grass is green
Lives a man with his queen
Somewhere in between the trees
In a world that no one sees
He’s growing his own army of bees
In a house by the bend in the road
Lives such a lucky boy
He loves to let it show
No matter heads or tales
Seems like the wind
Is always in his sails

He’s got a four-leaved clover
Tattooed on his arm
I guess someone like him
Doesn’t really need a lucky charm

They say it can’t be true
It never happens here
Like it does with you
Hey maybe you could share
Some of this with me ooh
And I could be lucky
I could be lucky
Jimmy just like you

Many think they know
He´s made the devil’s deal
And none of this is real
When he rolls the dice
You can see by his grin
He knows he’s gonna win

He’s got a four-leaved clover
Tattooed on his arm
I guess someone like him
Doesn’t really need a lucky charm

They say it can’t be true
It never happens here
Like it does with you
Hey maybe you could share
Some of this with me ooh
And I could be lucky
I could be lucky
Jimmy just like you

Ooh
I guess you were born under a lucky star
ooh
That can only ever
Only ever take you so far

Hey maybe you could share
Some of this with me ooh
And I could be lucky
I could be lucky
Jimmy just like you
They talk and smile but I can’t hear
I nod along just in case
In my head I’m nowhere near
I’m in a better place

I feel small I hide a tear
Followed by this cloud
I know I need to stay here
Sad and lonely in this crowd

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home, I wanna go home

Normal seems so nice
When no one knows you
I miss the calmness in your eyes
Here everything’s too new

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home, I wanna go home

Mountains and lakes on the way
Are hours and minutes to me
The sky is a paler grey
As I move closer to where I wanna be
Closer to where I wanna be

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home

I paint your letter on my wall
Right there and then remember it all
I’m far away and all alone
I wanna go home
I wanna go home
He ran up the path with blood on his hands
And a fear I’d never seen
He stops for a breath and a backwards glance
What could this have been

Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
I don’t want you here anymore
Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
Aaaaaooohhhh

I saw their master and he did not care
Sent me on my way
They’re running wild out here
Still we choose to stay

Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
I don’t want you here anymore
Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
Aaaaaaooohhh

We don’t go back to that neck of the woods
Try to stay off that track
Bow my head and pull up the hood
Whenever I must go back

Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
I don’t want you here anymore
Wolves wolves don’t howl at my door
Aaaaaooohhh
If I only had tomorrow
Today I’d look for you
If I only had tomorrow
Yes that’s what I would do

And I’d hold you closer than I ever have before
Like I told you I have never wished for more

If I only had tomorrow
I’d make you understand
If I only had tomorrow
I would hold on to your hand

I would show you all the things you wanted to see
And I know you’d save some little treasures just for me

When they turn out the lights for the day
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe
And if I ever have lost my way
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe

If I only had a moment
I wouldn’t see the clouds
If I only had a moment
I would speak of love out loud

And I’d tell you all the things I should have said before
Then I’d tell you once again just to be sure

When they turn out the lights for the day
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe
And if I ever have lost my way
Our blanket of memories will keep me safe

I will miss you more than words ever can explain
The way you kissed me used to work to take away the pain

With my eyes closed sometimes I can almost feel you here
When the wind blows I hear your softest whisper in my ear
Scared and I’m cold
Drenched in the lies
You told
With your empty eyes

You’ve got empty eyes, empty eyes

I’m happy I’m angry I laugh then I shout
I’m learning how to cope
Melted the hurt from the inside and out
Left standing in a puddle of hope

Don’t come up here for me
I took what’s left of us and I threw it to the sea

Tired and I’m sad thinking back to days we had
Before you lost your way

I’m happy I’m angry I laugh then I shout
I’m learning how to cope
Melted the hurt from the inside and out
Left standing in a puddle of hope

Don’t come up here for me
I took what’s left of us and I threw it to the sea

You’ve got empty eyes, empty eyes
Hush falls over the night
You won’t find me sleeping
There’s a little light
In my heart for safekeeping

Cold feet on the floor
All feels so exciting
Creaking of the door
Right where I was hiding

I did what I did and I saw what I saw
Remember the feel and the scent and
So much more
So much more

Laughter fills the hall
Ticking clock beside me
Right behind that door
Is the place where I should be

I did what I did and I saw what I saw
Remember the feel and the scent and
So much more
So much more

I did what I did and I saw what I saw
Remember the feel and the scent and
So much more
So much more
Remember it all
People often ask me
Why I don’t write a song
About the nights without you
being cold and long

How I lose track of time
Just looking in your eyes
Gazing at the stars
Telling pretty lies

I can put it in a pop song if you like
But what I feel about you doesn’t rhyme
I’d spell it out with roses at your feet
Is that really something that we need

Should I call you baby
When you’re feeling down
Waiting by the phone
When you’re not around

I can tell the whole world what I know
Make everybody see
But it wouldn’t change a thing
For you and me

I can put it in a pop song if you like
But what I feel about you doesn’t rhyme
I’d spell it out with roses at your feet
Is that really something that we need
The air feels heavy I can’t breath in here
A long long time ago liked having you near me
But now I’m big and sometimes even strong
I’m strong enough to see that you were wrong
I never needed you, needed you with me

The echo of your voice still in my head
I try my best forgetting what you said
I’ve heard so many truer things since then
From braver and better men
I never needed you, needed you with me

It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
These shoulders aren’t strong enough for two
It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
So many things I wish I could undo

You had this power everyone could see
They didn’t know you stole it all from me
I’ve seen you try to get by on your own
Haunted by the chances you have blown
‘Cause you needed me needed me with you

It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
These shoulders aren’t strong enough for two
It’s time to shake the shadows of you from over my head
So many things I wish I could undo
I miss the rain
I miss the rain
so I stay indoors all day
I miss the rain, I miss the rain
The skies are blue there’s no reason to complain
But all the same
I miss the rain

We’ve had seven days of summer
I’ve been counting
It’s the kind of weather nobody could hate
Everywhere around me people smiling
I’m the only one who’s looking for the shade

I should be happy I should be happy
I should be happy I should be happy

But I miss the rain
I miss the rain
So I stay indoors all day
I miss the rain, I miss the rain
The skies are blue there’s no reason to complain
But all the same
I miss the rain

Where did you go
There are no cloud’s above me
I squint my eyes the world just seems too bright

I should be happy I should be happy
I should be happy I should be happy

But I miss the rain
I miss the rain
So I stay indoors all day
I miss the rain, I miss the rain
The skies are blue there’s no reason to complain

But all the same

Wash my sins away

Synchronised Swimmers


I think he lives across the hall
And I don't know him at all
But I have a plan
In it he's the action man
He shifts across the street
I can't see his feet
He can save me anytime
From this little life of mine

I'm wishing I'm wishing I'm wishing
Away by my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without the action man

He will rocket and sky dive
In order to survive
Catch him if you can
He's the action man
Never needs a second chance
Brave with big strong hands
Makes everything okay
Always knows just what to say
what to say

I'm wishing I'm wishing I'm wishing
Away by my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without the action man

We'll have a moment in slow motion
And I re-play in my head all the clever
Things I could have said

Wishing I'm wishing I'm wishing away
By my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without

Wishing I'm wishing I'm wishing away
By my window every day
While he's on a mission
For a damsel in distress I'm almost
Happy and I guess
I can live without my action man
Live without my action man
Live without my action man
Action man
Over noodles from yesterday
I'm attempting some kind of a talk
Not that it matters anyway
It's a lonely road you walk
Life size cutout in the living room
Of a woman that should be cold
I think it's safe for me to assume
That you need to be told

Not sure what I'm doing here
But you're my oldest friend
Things were so much easier at school
This grown up world is tricky
I'm holding out my hand
It's unwritten but it's the rule

The green clock on the table
Tells me you should be dressed by now
You might feel slightly unable
But you'll get back up somehow
Were it the other way around
I know you'd sit in the dark with me
Until the courage could be found
To get on with plan B

Not sure what I'm doing here
But you're my oldest friend
Things were so much easier at school
This grown up world is tricky
I'm holding out my hand
It's unwritten but it's the rule

There's a storm in the cup of coffee
I'm about to drink
In it you are treading water
Trying not to sink

Not sure what I'm doing here
But you're my oldest friend
Things were so much easier at school
This grown up world is tricky
I'm holding out my hand
It's unwritten but it's the rule
It's unwritten but it's the rule
He’d rather swing from a cable
Than sit by the table and eat cake
He’s half way up before you’re even awake
He’s got style and still they dial the police
Just wait he’ll come down in one piece

He’s said before there’s a risk I know
Feeling almost dead is part of the show

They call him Kónguló
you never see him in an elevator
It moves too slow see you later
He’ll see you later
Let’s hope the winds don’t blow
watch out here comes the Kónguló

Afraid of heights when it comes to flights of stairs
But when he starts to moan nobody cares
No safety line he takes his time up there
Stops for coffee and the rest of us just stare

He’s said before there’s a risk I know
Feeling almost dead is part of the show

They call him Kónguló
You never see him in an elevator
It moves too slow see you later
He’ll see you later
Let’s hope the winds don’t blow
Watch out here comes the Kónguló

It made us all even keener
When you hitched a ride
With a window cleaner
Human Kónguló’s are rare
Now he’s on TV talking about his hair

They call him Kónguló
You never see him in an elevator
It moves too slow see you later
He’ll see you later
Let’s hope the winds don’t blow
Watch out here comes the Kónguló

La la la la la la la la la

Watch out here comes the Kónguló

La la la la la la la la la

Watch out here comes the Kónguló

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la la
When you're angry
And you're walking away
Waiting for them to stop you
But they don’t

Then it's ok
To wait for a while
Before you go back there again
With a smile
It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me

If you're hurting
Needing a tear
That is the time when they just don't
Seem to fall

It gets better
You give up the wait
And they come streaming down your face
When it's too late
It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me

If I had the answers to all my questions
There wouldn't be anywhere to go from here
If I had the answers to all my questions
There wouldn't be anywhere
There wouldn't be anywhere
To go from here

When you're happy
And you just don't know why
Don't waste precious time
Don't even try

If you're dancing
And nobody's there
Enjoy the fact that you don't
Even care

It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me

If I had the answers to all my questions
There wouldn't be anywhere
There wouldn't be anywhere
There wouldn't be anywhere
To go from here

It's just one of those things
I wish someone had told me
Nothing makes sense in the mornings anyway
So feelings are back in demand from today
Close my eyes and hope for a better one
'Cause life goes on

Boys and perfume from a pound store
Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
And I feel like the girl who's got it all
I feel like the girl who's got it all, got it all

Misery feels so out of place
Moment's happiness staring you in the face
Can't find love, then lust will do
I'm playing with you
I'm playing

Boys and perfume from a pound store
Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
And I feel like the girl who's got it all
I feel like the girl who's got it all

Nothing like my boy needs to be
It all happened so soon
They can't tell me what works for me
Let's have Christmas in June
Christmas in June

Boys and perfume from a pound store
Cheap Mona Lisa print on the wall
And I feel like the girl who's got it all

I feel like the girl who's got it all
I feel like
I feel like
I've got it all
Like synchronised swimmers
In an ocean of sounds
We're only beginners
Still looking around
It's a little bit deafening
How my inner voice is shouting out

What a lovely mess
Through the days we walk
There's liberating loneliness
In how you never talk
It's a little bit deafening
When my inner voice is shouting out

They'll come around
Just leave you be
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me

Maybe we're different
Different from who
They so wanna tell us
When they think we should do
It's a little bit deafening
How my inner voice is shouting out

They'll come around
Just leave you be
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me
Feet firmly on the ground
When you're standing next to me
Shouting out

It's a little bit deafening
When my inner voice is shouting out
It's a little bit deafening…
It's a little bit deafening…
It's a little bit deafening
When my inner voice is shouting out

Shouting out
We're synchronised swimmers
Shouting out
I don't want to smile
You can't make me
I've been dumped for a girl called Daisy
And it hurts
I picture her eating apples
All glowing happy and healthy
Girl next door

My blue bikini's faded and I don't even care
I think she's over rated with really stupid hair

I think the sun is wasted on me
I think the sun is wasted on me
I've taken a vow of misery
That's why the sun is wasted on me

I wear my purple dress
And walk like I mean business and I do
She sounds like a greeting card phrase
Little Miss Daisy at the door

Not the best beginning for my fantasy catfight
I've painted on a smile
But I'll be back tomorrow night

I think the sun is wasted on me
I think the sun is wasted on me
I've taken a vow of misery
That's why the sun is wasted on me

I think the sun is shining on me
I think the sun is shining on me
I've broken the vow of misery
That's why the sun is shining on me
Shining on me shining
Orange car people sit in trees
Hard to digest all the memories
Fell off a bike the blood still fresh
Focus on saving my party dress

I'm in bed it's after dark
Still hear them playing in the park
Run around and laugh out loud
That is it I'm sneaking out

Waiting for things to turn around
Summer should have a different sound
Sad situation too much of a wait
The time of my life is starting late

With mum in the early morning rush
People watching the on the bus
Day after day always the same
And they don't even know my name

Waiting for the things to turn around
Summer should have a different sound
Sad situation too much of a wait
The time of my life is starting late

Dreams of impossible happiness
Sugar coated truth
I need to wake up
And shake off my youth

The time of my life is starting late
The time of my life is starting late
The time of my life is starting late
The time of my life is starting late
A girl in a nylon apron serves me cinnamon toast
On a plate with a picture of a cat
The man on the next table pretends to read the paper
We all know he's asleep under his hat

Look out on the street and I
See a lady feeding birds too fat to fly

Everything is basic in a town like this
You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
Just like Dolly I will get away

Goodbye to homemade lemonade

The girl with the apron talks way too loud on the phone
About a boy she wants to snog
They still have that sign up
But someone has decided that
Patch doesn't count as a dog

Look out on the street and I
See a lady feeding birds too fat to fly

Everything is basic in a town like this
You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
Just like Dolly I will get away

Goodbye to homemade lemonade

Everything is basic in a town like this
You get your picture in the paper if you catch a fish
Dwelling on if onlys on a rainy day
Just like Dolly I will get away

Goodbye to homemade lemonade
Flying high as a kite
With proper starts there in the night
Just when she's starting to shine
Gets tangled on a power line

From looking at her face
She's the nicest person in this place
They clearly don't know
She's putting on a little show

And she tries so hard to prove
She's got nothing to prove
Every little fall is a signature move
She's made a deal with the devil
You can't take those back
She will always be
The prettiest insomniac around here

I almost know a criminal

Pushes them out of her head
Thoughts when she's alone in bed
She'll get away with it
Looks nothing like her photo fit

And she tries so hard to prove
She's got nothing to prove
Every little fall is a signature move
She's made a deal with the devil
You can't take those back
She will always be
The prettiest insomniac

Fear eats my sanity
I say I like her dress
This time she doesn't shout at me
We must be making progress

Tries so hard to prove
She's got nothing to prove
Every little fall is a signature move
She's made a deal with the devil
You can't take those back
She will always be
The prettiest insomniac around here

I almost know a criminal
I almost know a criminal
I almost know a criminal
I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
I've got everything I need
Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
And some tin foil on his feet

We'll go for walks
And feed the ducks with bread
He scares them off
With the lasers on his head
Remote control
Needs no compromise
The look of love
In this bright red eyes

I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
I've got everything I need
Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
And some tin foil on his feet

He doesn't breathe
And never needs to sleep
His hardware heart
Never skips a beat

I'm gonna build a robot and I'll name it after you
I've got everything I need
Using nuts and bolts and just a little bit of glue
And some tin foil on his feet
We live in a house with a blue door
When we’re going out
They’re coming home
And if sometimes all day
The curtains are drawn
It’s just that we’d rather be left alone

They think we’re vampires
That could be cool
But we’re not vampires

We’re just me and you
Here in the dark me and you
And our little spark
They think we’re vampires

Inside there is love and there’s laughter
Our adventures they’ll never know
It’s easy to think of darkness
When the light is just not on show

They think we’re vampires
Don’t mean to be cruel
But we’re not vampires

We’re just me and you
Here in the dark me and you
And our little spark

Maybe they just don’t know
How it feels to hide away
We’ve made a world it’s just for two
There is no night there is no day

They think we’re vampires
And that could be cool
But we’re not vampires

We’re just me and you
Here in the dark me and you
And our little spark
They think we’re vampires
Don’t mean to be cruel
But we’re not vampires

We’re just me and you
We’re just me and you
We’re just me and you
Somehow it hurts to be happy
In your head
I see your seasonal sadness setting in
So much unsaid

Somehow it hurts to be happy
In your head

Learn to let it go

I tell you things will better
Just wait and see

You shake your head in disbelief
And whisper not for me

Learn to let it go
Learn to let it go

As the days become longer
Glimpse of winter sun
I see you smile
Spring has begun

Learn to let it go
Learn to let it go
Learn to let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

Dirty Paper Cup


He told her he would give everything
If she just could bring him
A ski jumper

And after the next two weeks
He likes the jumper heaps
And he wants to be
A ski jumper

He's standing there tall
Wearing his jumper and all
When his heart gets small

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

His feet are cold
He says they should have told him
What it's like for
A ski jumper

He's starting to slide
And there's nowhere to hide
When you're
A ski jumper

He's standing there tall
Wearing his jumper and all
When his heart gets small

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

He's in the air so there's not much to do
But enjoy the view
For the ski jumper

And when he's back down
He says that any clown can be
A ski jumper

He's standing there tall
Wearing his jumper and all
When his heart gets small

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

Down down don't wanna go down
Don't you push me down
I wanna hang around a little longer

A little longer
Ski jumper
Ski jumper
Ski jumper
A guy full of holes opens the door
Sees on my face I've never been before
Only noises no soothing sounds
Decorated people tell me
It looks great on you
It's just not my thing
The receptionist has a nipple ring
In this place I'm like a boring saint
Use all my strength
Not to faint again

A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
Like the rapper girls on TV
Diamonds on my belly
A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
The only thing between you and me
Diamonds on my belly
Diamonds on my belly

The scariest guy I've ever seen
Tries to smile but he still looks mean
Tell myself it just can't be him
When I look up he invites me in
Ask him to give me something sweet
He brings back more than I need
Then suddenly everything goes black
I wake up, see the glittery track

A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
Like the rapper girls on TV
Diamonds on my belly
A little later I'll let you see
Diamonds on my belly
The only thing between you and me
Diamonds on my belly
Diamonds on my belly
How do I look
What do I do
Why does God make me
Run into you
Should I talk
Should I pout

My heart beats
Way too loud
And my heart beats
Way too loud

Try not to notice you look my way
All of my feelings are on display
Should I talk
Should I pout

My heart beats
Way too loud
And my heart beats
Way too loud

You're an ongoing challenge
In the story of me
Still don't know
How the ending should be

I wish that I knew now
What I knew then
Danced my way to trouble once again

My heart beats
Way too loud
And my heart beats
Way too loud

My heart beats
Way too fast
And my heart beats
Way too fast
She flies much faster
Shouts much louder
Looks much fresher
And eats much less than you

There's nothing you can do
It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko

She doesn't gossip
Her hair still shines
Still has hope
Is never broke
Like you

There's nothing you can do
It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko

But you get into all these clubs
You never dreamed of
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want
Do three thousand stupid things
But you don't get screamed at
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want

She's always nice
And gives advice
When we don't have a clue
She needs no help
From you

It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko

But you get into all these clubs
You never dreamed of
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want
Do three thousand stupid things
But you don't get screamed at
And get loads of boys and toys
When you want
If you want

She's never cold
Puts boys on hold
Has the whitest smile
And her shoes
Used to be a crocodile
It's true
Tomoko
It's hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko
There's nothing you can do
Tomoko, Tomoko
No there's nothing you can do
Tomoko, Tomoko
It's just hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko, Tomoko
And there's nothing you can do
Tomoko, Tomoko
Yes it's hard to hang out with Tomoko
Tomoko, Tomoko
My first time for years
With minimal makeup
Waiting to hear
It's the true you

You don't even smile
You never notice
When I do things for you
When I do things for you

I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
'Cause now I know
It's the right way for you to go

Find parts of myself
That were not missing
Make up opinions as good as yours
The harder I try
The more you dislike me
I'll never be good enough
I'll never be good enough

I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
'Cause now I know
It's the right way for you to go

You'll never fly
Like proper angels in the sky
But I'd love to see you try

It's always about
How you feel
Witch would be ok
If your feelings are real
If you listened to me
Perhaps you'd see
That we're better off without you
Were better off without you

I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
I hope you choke
In your plastic halo
'Cause now I know
It's the right way for you to go
Now I know
It's the right way for you to go
Leave in an instant
I won't blame you
I guess I would hate me too
It's crazy I know
So you should go
didn't know what else to do

Admit it you're scared
You so wanna cry
Don't understand
Just how I dared

I did the only thing
The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind

Don't be so sad
It makes me feel stupid
Like I really did something bad
It wasn't hard and I didn't think
Oh how low can I sink

Admit it you're scared
You so wanna cry
Don't understand
Just how I dared

I did the only thing
The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind

It's too late baby
I can't change a thing
Would you feel better
If I'd smile and sing

I did the only thing
The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind

The only thing that felt right
To a fucked up mind
You wouldn't understand it
Because you're not that kind
You're sitting by the angel fountain
Do you want to share my blanked I ask you
Hoping for a positive answer
You smile and slowly walk towards me

As you come closer
I notice the unique colour of your eyes
A perfect blend of dark blue
And some kind of yellow
But they don't really match your shirt

We could live happily
Ever after
We could live happily
Ever after

You sit down close to me enough
For me to observe that you smell like honey
And I really like honey
Not as much as vanilla though

We talk in the sun for hours
And I tell you, you listen like a girl
You smile and understand that it's a compliment
I like you

We could live happily
Ever after
We could live happily
Ever after

la la la la la

Before you leave you write your number
On a dirty paper cup
I walk home sunburnt in my face
Holding that paper cup next to my heart

We could live happily
Ever after
We could live happily
Ever after

la la la la la
He's a big blue monster
From a cartoon strip
He could have guns
Shoot bang from the hip
His ammunition is not real
There's nothing to feel
There's nothing to feel

I've got it all figured out
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not

Maybe the monster
Needs a green chickadee
I want him to want her
And stop wanting me
They could be lovers
And just let me be
Just let me be

'Cause I've got it all figured out
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not

He won't go looking
He's keeping on scaring
They meet by a chance
The kind that is a setup
Find romance in a blue green getup

I've got it all figured out
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not
Ice cream is nice
Monsters are not

Ice cream is nice
Ice cream is nice
Ice cream is nice
Someday I'll find myself
In a vacuum with you
And I'll unwind and stay behind your shoulder
And I'll unwind and stay behind your shoulder

Celebration, celebration
Celebration, celebration

My breath will warm you
I'll soothe you with my touch
And you shed a tear and I'll be near
To dry you
And you shed a tear and I'll be near
To dry you

Celebration, celebration
Celebration, celebration

How easily we loose the others
Fade into our world
And manipulate and celebrate our world
And manipulate and celebrate our world

Celebration, celebration
Celebration, celebration
We stand in a pack staring
Like younger girls do
They all look apple cheeked
I'm sure I do too

It's way past midnight
Sweat makes hair stick
To the back of my neck
This excites me

He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero

I must be one of God's
Big time favourites
Must have done something right
To deserve all this

We've gone obsessive
And his second hand Honda
Is the centre of my world
I’m envied by senior girls

He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero...

How good it feels to walk here
Holding hands
I'd like you even more
If you were in a band

He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero
He's my hometown hero...
You're the star of my dreams
My personal sunbeam
My heart is your home
I'm never alone

Sometimes I'm in the dream too
Just looking at you
We shout and we play
We're finding our way

We're not in a hurry
Let's take a little time
We'll just stay younger
A little longer

How amazing I feel
Can you be for real
I'm smiling at you
You make it all new

We lie side by side
I know this is right
It just feels so true
To be here with you

We're not in a hurry
Let's take a little time
We'll just stay younger
A little longer

A collection of moment's
Going to extremes
I didn't know that sometimes living
Is better than the dream

We're not in a hurry
Let's take a little time
We'll just stay younger
A little longer…
Who loves the sun
Who cares that it makes plants grow
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart

Who loves the wind
Who cares that it makes breezes
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart

La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, not everyone

Who loves the rain
Who cares that it makes flowers
Who cares that it makes showers
Since you broke my heart

Who loves the sun
Who cares that it is shining
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart

La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, not everyone

La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
La, la, la, la, not just anyone
La, la, la, la, who loves the sun
Sumri Hallar hausta fer
Heyri snjallir ýtar
Hafa fjallahnjúkarnir
Húfur mjalla hvítar

Girnast allar elfur skjól
Undir mjallar þaki
Þorir varla að sýna sól
Sig að fjallabaki

Verður svalt því veðri er breytt
Vina eins og geðið
Þar sem allt var áður heitt
Er nú kalt og freðið
