Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
Ba dom, Ol' fashioned love
(Dom, ba dom) Ol' fashioned love,
(Ba dom dom dom) Ol' fashioned love,
(Ba dom) Ol' fashioned love.

You caught my eye the moment you were dancing to my favourite song.
I know it's kinda crazy I've been staring at you all night long.
Come over here a minute, I wanna know you secret, so would you
start talking to me?
I wanna get to know you, so baby I can show you how it's supposed to be.

I wanna be your lover, give you that good ol' fashioned love
No other, will ever come between us.
I'll hold you tight and I'll do you right
And I'll love you like no one can.

I see you looking over, and I'm feeling I've been nothing to you
I get a little closer 'cause I think I should be making a move.
I'm standing right beside you but you don't seem to notice,
No you just don't have a clue.
'Cause if I was your man, I'd treat you like no other can,
What do I have to do.

To be your lover, give you that good ol' fashioned love
No other, will ever come between us.
I'll hold you tight and I'll do you right
And I'll love you like no one can.
Like no one can (Ohhh)
Ol' fahsioned love
Like no one can.

Oh, let me tell you straight from the heart
I will be the one to love you right,
So let's begin tonight.
(Ol' fashioned love)

I wanna be your lover, give you that good ol' fashioned love
No other, will ever come between us.
I'll hold you tight and I'll do you right
And I'll love you like no one can.

I wanna be your lover, give you that good ol' fashioned love
No other, will ever come between us.
I'll hold you tight and I'll do you right
And I'll love you like no one can.

Ohhh, yeaaa yee, some good ol' fashioned love
Good ol' fashioned love.

Blue Moon Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
Blue blue blue
Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue blue blue moon
You knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me"
And when I looked
The moon had turned to gold

Blue moon
You saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

And then suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms could ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me"
And when I looked
The moon had turned to gold

Blue moon
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Without a love of my own

Every dream that I dream is you somehow?

Are not with me?

I'm no good without you anyhow

Yes, I do

In The Still Of The Night Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
In the still of the night
I held you, held you tight
'Cause I love, love you so
Promise I'll never let you go
In the still of the night

I remember that night in May
The stars were bright above
I hope and I pray to keep
Your precious love

Well before the light
Hold me again
With all of your might
In the still of the night

So before the light
Hold me again
With all of your might
In the still of the night

In the still...of...the night

Don't Make Me Over Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
Don't make me over
Now that I'd do anything for you
Don't make me over
Now that you know how I adore you
Don't pick on the things I say
The things I do
Just love me with all my faults
The way that I love you,
I'm begging you

Don't make me over
Now that I can't make it without you
Don't make me over
I wouldn't change one thing about you

Just take me inside your arms
And hold me tight
And always be by my side
If I am wrong or right
I'm begging you

Don't make me over
Don't make me over
Now that you got me at your command

Accept me for what I am
Accept me for the things that I do
Accept me for what I am
Accept me for the things that I do

Now that I can't make it without you
I wouldn't change one thing about you

Just take me inside your arms
And hold me tight
And always be by my side
If I am wrong or right
I'm begging you

Don't make me over
Don't make me over
Now that you got me at your command

Accept me for what I am
Accept me for the things that I do
Accept me for what I am
Accept me for the things that I do

Whoops Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
Hey, take a look at me, I'm the King of catastrophe
A sentimental fool with my heart on my sleeve
And when it comes to love, I'm my own worst enemy.
Crazy it don't make no sense. I try to put it down to experience
I wanna stop but I can't get enough
Like a merry-go-round and around again... and again

Reading all the signs, in between the lines, Never comes too easily
Every step I take leads my heart to break, it's worth all the misery.
Whoops there I go again
I can't pretend, just like a riddle, caught up in the middle
Whoops, there I go again, My heart goes boom, my head is spinning, I'm back at the beginning
Whoops, whoops (ba do dum ba) Whoa
Whoops Whoops yeah ay ay ay
Whoops whoops (ba do dum ba) Whoa
Whoops Whoops (ba do dum ba)

I'm a loser in this game of love, I always hope the next one's from up above
I try but I can't resist this feeling's so strong, and I can't get rid of it
Reading all the signs, in between the lines, never comes too easy to me
Every step I take leads my heart to break, it's worth all the misery.
Whoops there I go again
I can't pretend, just like a riddle, caught up in the middle
Whoops, there I go again,

My heart goes boom, my head is spinning, I'm back at the beginning
Oh, I know I'll find the love that's true. I'm gonna keep on searching, searching
Searching my whole life through
Whoops there I go again
I can't pretend, just like a riddle, caught up in the middle
Whoops, there I go again,
My heart goes boom, my head is spinning, I'm back at the beginning
Whoops there I go again
I can't pretend, just like a riddle, caught up in the middle
Whoops, there I go again,

My heart goes boom, my head is spinning, I'm back at the beginning
Whoops, whoops (ba do dum ba) There I go
Whoops, whoops, there I go again
Whoops Whoops, On my own again
Whoops, Hey, whoops, cos I'm back at the beginning.

Why Do Fools Fall In Love Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do birds sing so gay?
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love?

Why does the rain fall from up above?
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do they fall in love?

Love is a losing game
Love can be a shame
I know a fool you see, for that fool is me
Tell me why, oh why, tell me why
Why do they fall in love?

Why do fools fall in love?

Why do birds sing so gay?
And lovers await the break of day
Why do they fall in love?

Why does the rain fall from up above?
Why do fools fall in love?
Why do they fall in love?

Why does my heart skip a crazy beat?
For I know, it will reach defeat
Tell me why, oh why, tell me why
Why do they fall in love?

Why do fools fall in love?

Rolling In The Deep Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch,
it's bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go head and sell me out
and I'll lay your shit bare

See how I leave with every piece of you
Don't underestimate the things that I will do

There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch
And its bring me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
And you played it
To the beat

Baby I have no story to be told
But I've heard one of you
And I'm gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Making a home down there
It Reminds you of the home we shared

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
And you played it
To the beat

Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turned my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

We could have had it all
We could have had it all
It all, it all it all,
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
And you played it
To the beat

Beggin' Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
Put your loving hand out, baby
I'm begging

(Begging) begging
Put your loving hand out, baby
(Begging) begging you
Put your loving hand out, baby

Riding high when I was king
Played it hard and fast
Cause I had everything
You walked away, won me then
But easy come and easy go
And it would end

(Begging) I'm begging you
Won't you give your hand out, baby
(Begging) begging
Put your loving hand out, baby

I need you to understand
That I tried so hard
To be your man
The kind of man you want in the end
Only then can I begin to live again

An empty shell
Used to be
Shadow of my life
Is hanging over me

Broken man without a throne
Wont even stand the devils dance
To win my soul

(Begging) begging you

Won't you give your hand out, baby
(Begging) begging you
Put your loving hand out, baby

I'm fighting hard
To hold my own
No, I just cant make it
All alone

I'm holdin on
I can't fall back
Now that big brass ring
Is a shade of black

(Begging) I'm begging you
Won't you give your hand out, baby
(Begging) begging
Put your loving hand out, baby

(Begging) begging you

We Can Work It Out Lyrics

Artist : OVERTONES, THE
Album : Good Ol' Fashioned Love / Gambling Man
Try to see it my way,
Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on?
While you see it your way,
Run the risk of knowing that our love may soon be gone.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Think of what you're saying.
You can get it wrong and still you think that it's all right.
Think of what I'm saying,
We can work it out and get it straight, or say good night.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime,
So I will ask you once again.

Try to see it my way,
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Life is very short, and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend.
I have always thought that it's a crime,
So I will ask you once again.

Try to see it my way,
Only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong.
While you see it your way
There's a chance that we might fall apart before too long.

We can work it out,
We can work it out.

Wicked Man's Rest Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
You can say I'm mad
You can say I'm crazy
But I'm only as bad
As the maker who made me

Sinner in the darkness
Liar in the church
Deaf man's silence
The blind man's search

Teardrop falling
Memory recalling
Ghost in your dreams
And your secret recordings

Mad man's matches
Lump in your throat
The pea under your mattress
The hole in your coat

Singer with the sound down
Winner on the come down
Poet in the overcoat
Looking for a suntan

On his birthday
Prisoner on his first day
Tired of the new wave

I rise to meet you
As your trust dissolves to shame
Oh, this innocence has turned and lost its way
Retrace the footprints
Off the path from which I came
I'm the beast in you, the beast in me

(Which way are we going?
The doors close in an hour)

You can say I'm mad
You can say I'm crazy
But I'm only as bad
As the maker who made me

Needle for the user
The pain in your chest
Beggar and the chooser
The wicked man's rest

Fear in the stuntman
Sneer in the playground
Bottle in the hand
Of a dirty old drunk man

Leaf falling
Autumn calling
Dark clouds forming

I rise to meet you
As your trust dissolves to shame
Oh, this innocence has turned and lost its way
Retrace the footprints
Off the path from which I came
I'm the beast in you, the beast in me

Bite my nails
Right down to the skin
Where one trust ends
And another lie begins

Patch over holes
In my weakened heart
Which angels hold
And devils pull apart

I'm the beast in you
The beast in me
The bitterness, the jealousy
The part of you that never sleeps

(Are you my angel?
Will we walk all night through solitary streets?)

And you hardly can imagine
What you never had before
And the reason that you're given
Still leaves you wanting more

I rise to meet you
As your trust dissolves to shame
Oh, this innocence has turned and lost its way
Retrace the footprints
Off the path from which I came
I'm the beast in you, the beast in me
The bitterness, the jealousy
The part of you that never sleeps

Things You've Never Done Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
When you were younger
Blue eyed boy wonder
Never used to ponder
On what life may hide

Now that you're older
The nights are so much colder
Never even told her
How you feel inside

You were so proud
With your head up in the white clouds
She'd call you so loud
But you'd never know

Now that you're wiser
You'd never compromise her
Ever day you'd realise her
But this bird has flown

And you've blown out all your candles one by one
And you curse yourself for things you've never done

She would wait for you
Idolise, adore you
Love and reassure you
You couldn't let it be

You let it linger
Slip on through your fingers
So that September
She moved across the sea

How your face dropped
And how your heart stopped
Sitting at the bus stop
When they told you that she’d gone

So you run to the harbour
Need to tell her that you love her
As the boat disappears
You never felt so alone

'Cause you’ve blown out all your candles one by one
And you curse yourself for things you never done
Where were you when her hour of need had come?
Now you curse yourself for things you never done

Now your grandson blonde haired blue eyed handsome
Calls you up from London and sits and asks you why
So your answer don’t be scared of failure
For the only failure is never to try

Walk You Home Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
I see you nearly every day,
I see you but you don't see me.
Wish I had something clever to say and,
Wish I had something better I could be.

We touched hands by the coffee machine the other day,
I know you've forgotten already, but I'm going to take that moment to the grave.

'coz I just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.

Oh Yeh.

I see you nearly every night,
I see you when you're down in your house.
In my night vision binoculars and,
I creep quiet as a mouse.

Well I get jeleous when I see you stroking his hair,
but it's ok I tell myself 'coz I know it's only an affair.
I know.

'coz I just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.
Well I just need some time alone,
I just need some time alone.

I'm the boy who watches the phone,
I'm the boy who eats lunch on his own,
I'm the boy with the monotone,
I'm the boy, still lives at home.
I'm the boy with the ironed shirt,
I'm the boy who watches you work,
I know where you keep your skirts,
I know where your secrets hurt.
I'm the boy thats calling your house,
I'm the boy thats freaking you out,
With my thermos flask of tea,
Up there in your neighbours tree.
I'm the boy that's crossing borders,
I'm the boy with social disorders,
I'm the boy with restraining orders,
I'm the boy yeah.

'coz I just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.
Well I know that it's no right decree,
But I just want to watch you sleep alone.
I say I just want to walk you home,
I just want to walk you home.

Stray Dog Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
I had fallen down again, I had nowhere to go
You had bolted your doors and closed your windows
Still a crack in your wall that I could see through
Saw your house was empty and rode out to meet you

But the city was cold confusing and vast
And the light in my soul was fading fast
Slung towards the back streets
And the alleys where the drunks fight

Walked on past the factories in ever dying sunlight

I needed you
I needed you
I needed you
But you never came for me

Many years now have passed
She's not left my mind
And memories like photographs have faded in time
I walked past the cafes and the nightclubs
Walked past the beggars
And the ladies with their white gloves

I know it won't be long now
It's getting near the end
My ribs are poking through and my coat is getting thin

I needed you
I needed you
I needed you
But you never came for me

So I walked back to where I'd once called home
But the rooms were dark and bare and the garden overgrown
And the door was still locked and the windows still shut
And the wall was still cracked
Why did I come back?
And the answer so thin left me hollow within
'cause nothing had changed except the date and my age
And I still have this pain bloating my veins
Thumping in my aching brain

I needed you
I needed you
I needed you
But you never came for me

So I turned away from my madness
Thought I saw a light flicker by the door
I closed down both my eyelids and thought no more

Do What You Like Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
It never felt, like it felt when I felt it
For the first time with you
And you know I wouldn’t lie

Now I’m standing by the fountain
And I’m counting all the sunken coins
Maybe they know what it’s like

To be a stain on your shirt
And a hole in your jeans
To be a speckle of dirt
On your dress so clean

Because I give you my all
But you give nothing to me
So go on, do what you like

You never meant what you said
But you said it 'cause you’ve had one or two
And I know that’s what you’re like

Now I’m standing by the wall, feeling small
As you’re working the room
And I know that he’s your type

With his tight fitted shirt
And his designer jeans
Well you treat me like dirt
I treat you like a queen
You have the time in the world
And not a second for me
So go on

You took me to the party
I don’t know anybody
But I’ll wait for you

Yeah you left me here alone
And you’re not answering your phone
And still I’ll wait for you

Because the taxi’s just a fiver
But I'm your designated driver
And I’ll wait for you

Because tonight could be the night
when you realize this is right
And so I’ll wait for you

So no smoking, no drinking
Straight thinking 'cause
I’m driving you home
And I think your coat’s upstairs

Now I'm standing on the landing
And I’m staring through an open door
I can’t believe it's you in there

With an unbuttoned shirt
And your hands down his jeans
Well you treat me like dirt
But your hands stay clean
Because I give you my all
But you give nothing to me

So go on, do what you like
Do what you like to me

Four Horses Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
Four horses pull a carriage through an empty street
And though the day is cold & still they are not
breathing They make no sound at all

As easily as water finds its way to ground
They bleed into the brick and are gone

And I have seen what I have seen as I fall
Like a whisper in the dome of St Paul
The drowning man's forgot what he's called
But he illuminates our town for us all

Walk up the narrow staircase from the balcony
And at the top go out and grip the golden railing
The view from up here really takes your breath away
You step out of of your skin and you're gone

So follow me down to the riverside, honey
We can pack our bags and take all our money
We can fly away, we can fly away

Take me down to the railway tracks
We can cross the bridge where the sun sets, baby
We can fly away, we can fly away

Take me down, take me down
Fly away, fly away

The day is cold and still and there's no reason
To make a sound at all
As easily as water finds its way to ground

And I have seen what I have seen as I fall
Like a whisper in the dome of St Paul
The drowning man's forgot what he's called
But he illuminates our town for us all

Needle In The Dark Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
With progress comes problems
With wisdom comes age
With lessons come learning
And pleasure comes with pain

You can only have the sunshine after the rain

I took a walk
It got me thinking
Left foot, right foot
Smiling, blinking
Breathe out, breathe in
Somehow linking

My soul to my mind and my heart to my mouth
Lost and the found and the north to the south
And the corners to the circle in my mind

We may find that the gate has been locked
When we come back down to what we really are
Retrace the footprints off the path that is lost
It's like trying to find a needle in the dark

My hands they are empty
But they are clean
I'm poor but I'm healthy
I'm halfway between
The gutter and the skyline

So I took a walk to the land's end
Thinking ‘bout an ex-girlfriend that I had
And the pages that I've turned
And it seems to me
That we all love the chase
But once we're caught we feel encased
Behind bars of love and trust
Uprooted by drunken lust
By people, people just like us
People, people just like us

You may find that the gate has been locked
When we come back down to what we really are
Retrace the footprints off the path that's been lost
It's like trying to find a needle in the dark

So I took a walk to the station
Lost in my imagination
Having private conversations with myself
And I'm just stumbling ‘round
And I wait for the sound
Of this crumbling town to come tumbling down
People say I'm just bummin' around
But I've had both my ears to the ground

For You Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
I turn my back on you
And as I try to, I hurt for you
I keep degrading you
And it's a feeling of healing

You are on your knees
I feel so pleased

How should I reply?
When all you say is why

I open up for you
And as I try to, I picture you
I keep degrading me
And it's a feeling of healing

Walk In The Rain Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
I walked the steps of my father today
Worked till I froze and my face turned grey
And all of my fingers calloused and worn to the bone
And I felt like a child in a world full of men
Trying to capture that something again
Strong as an ox but slowly turning to stone

Walking away from this room dark and grey
Smoke hangs in clouds and the old echo plays

And the music is soft
And the voice it is hushed
And the boy he has loved
And the man he has lost

And I walk out in the rain
All over again

I felt the touch of my mother today
Gently pushing me forward again
Closing my eyes but still feeling the way
And I'm clutching at fingers through crumples & creases
I came to my senses it cut me to pieces
'Cause I needed more but I was pulling away

Walking alone with these legs made of stone
I'm almost dry and I'm almost home

Where the photographs smile
And I'm still someone's child
And my place it is set
So I'll stay for a while

Till I walk out in the rain
Like water would stain
And I'm born all over again

Table For One Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wicked Man's Rest
So I sit on this table for one
And pour me a drink that'll last
I'm not drunk I just miss being young
And I grew old too fast

My wife she breaks and she bends
My children they don't understand
I came here tonight in search of a friend
But I'm the invisible man

'Cause I've swallowed my tongue
And I've polished my gun
And I've sat on my secrets for years
With my stiff upper lip
My composure won't slip
And I've hidden each silent salty tear

I sit on this table for one
And I have been here before
It's a little less than I'd had in mind
But I wouldn't ask for more

And my mother she taught me to write
And my father he taught me his trade
And I wish that they could both be here tonight
To see what a mess I've made

'Cause I've swallowed my tongue
And I've polished my gun
And I've sat on my secrets for years
With my stiff upper lip
My composure won't slip
And I've hidden each silent salty tear

My sons and my daughters don't know me at all
I've dug in trenches and put up walls
I whisper I love you each night as they sleep
But no one hears me when I speak
On this table for one

So I sit on this table for one
I won't go till they tell me to leave
Why'd they teach me to follow my dreams
When dreams are all they can be?

The Last Unicorn Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Well we’ll kiss for that’s how it begins,
We’ll embrace just to warm our skins.
I’ll think of her and you’ll think of him.

And we’ll talk to keep the silence from our ears,
And we’ll laugh because we’re so close to tears,
We’re just lonely, you know, that’s why we’re here.

Cos you don’t taste like you should,
And you don’t fit in my arms like she would.
Lying in the dark, it’s understood:
We are both lost.
And we won’t be found.

We will wake up with each other in our paws,
You cover over white bits like I’ve not seen them before.
We’ll say goodbye and then we’ll say no more.

Cause hearts won’t buy love and nor will they sell,
And there is no love in this hotel.
Though we’re walking home we know too well
We are both lost
We are both lost
And we won’t be found.

She was my compass,
He was your map,
We’ve come too far to be turning back.

And we’ll sit on our single beds,
Nothing on our hearts and tears on our threads,
For we know the last unicorn is dead.

What Will Become Of Us Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Well, wood burns, and metal rusts,
So, darling, what’s to become of us,
When the weather turns, and they say it must,
Well, we’ll need coats for the both of us,
But the wool is thin and it’s full of holes,
And there’s no heat in this abandoned bus,
So will we go alone, out on our own,
Oh, darling, what’s to become of us

Well, boats sink into the sea,
And airplanes that crash like computer screens,
And signals fail, trains derail,
And car bonnets crumple like magazines,
‘Til they’re put in piles like stacks of tiles,
In a yard full of fridges and broken stuff,
Will we go alone out on our own,
Oh, darling, what’s to become of us

We will bite our noses off to spite our faces,
Both of us will rust like metal fences in the rain,
You will pour the gasoline and I will spark the matches,
We will burn within our fire, we will burn within our flames

Well, yeast ferments and milk sours,
When it’s out of the fridge for too many hours,
Well, we lament in separate towers,
Never knowing if we’re brave or if we’re cowards,
For they pour cement down this hole of ours,
And we’ll be stuck under stones and flowers,
Will we go alone out on our own,
Oh, darling, that’s what will become of us

I See Love Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
We’ll roll down dirty old windows
And sing with our eyes closed
And belt out the high notes.

And we’ll go down to the beach
Where the wind blows
And we’ll throw off our old clothes
And we’ll dance with our eyes closed.

Because I see love
I see love when I close my eyes
And I see love
I see love when I close my eyes

Yeah, we’ll watch the stars glow
And the flames burn the wood slow
Playing games with our shadows
Till all four of our eyes close.

And darling we’ll sleep close
With no blankets or pillows
Like the Wind in the Willows
And we’ll dream with our eyes closed.

Yeah I see love
I see love when I close my eyes
And I see love
I see love when I close my eyes

And I feel love in spite of myself
And I feel love to frighten myself
And I feel love and I feel nothing else

Vultures and black crows
Perching on sign posts
Circling like ghosts
So we’ll just keep our eyes closed.

Rainbows Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Glass was shattered here
Midst the burning smell of fear
Dressed in plainclothes

Bloodstain on the snow
Looks like red wine on the clothes
Of a sailor

She lives in a photograph
Waits for you to make her laugh

Life was shattered here
Midst a thousand mothers’ tears
We’ll need rainclothes

And teardrops melt the snow
Reveal the oil spill in the road
Looks like rainbows

Drunk upon the scaffolding
Swinging around

Drunk upon the scaffolding
Laughing at the ground as he falls

Caravan Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Pour the petrol can, around this caravan,
and watch the flames take all you own.
There’s a girl that understands
like the back of her two hands,
she’s all you need to know.

Cause you search for years but you lose everything you find.
There’s braille for the deaf and a signpost for the blind,
there’s heaven for the cruel but the devil waits for the kind.

[Whistling]

And you follow the blackbird home, through the early winter snow.
Your footprints track you through the grass.
And you ache just to smell her clothes
and her cooking down on the stove
You see her face in everyone you pass.

Cause you search for years but you lose everything you find.
There’s braille for the deaf and a signpost for the blind,
there’s heaven for the cruel but the devil waits for the kind.

And you walk down to her window
press your face against the glass
only to find that she is happy in his arms.

[Whistling]

Cause you search for years but you lose everything you find.
There’s braille for the deaf and a signpost for the blind,
there’s heaven for the cruel but the devil waits for the kind.

Wide Eyes Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Well I’ve not seen Alaskan white
and I’ve not seen Tokyo by night
and I’ve not seen the northern lights
But I have seen your wide eyes tonight

And I’ve not done all I could have done
And I have walked when I could have run
And I have lost all I could have won
But your wide eyes reflect and move on

I have found a hole in my coat
I have found a lump in my throat
I have laughed at all my own jokes
But your wide eyes are like water to a boat

I have never packed my case
Gone underground or out into space
When my gaze rests heavy on your face
Well, your wide eyes are my favourite place
Yeah, your wide eyes are my favourite place

Underwater Bride Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Help me stay awake I’m falling asleep
And I don’t want to fall asleep
While you’re here
You’re gunna leave when the alarm clock beeps
And it will beep any moment
My dear

And all that we have will be locked into memory
Like everything that we’ve had before
So I will stay awake
And I will watch the fire burning
And keep the hungry wolves from the door

Help me find my way back to the bread crumbs
I’ve wandered alone through the trees
The lights are dimming in the windows of the houses
And my heart is starting to freeze

See we have light but we won’t use it
We’re scared we’ll lose it if we don’t use it
Then we’ll die here in the dark
They will find us hopeless and helpless
And clutching our frozen hearts

But you and I well we’ll be buried side by side
And time it won’t mean a thing
I’ll be your underground groom
You’ll be my underground bride

Please can you help me keep my head above the water
I have cramp in both of my calves
Yeah my lungs are filling up with cold dirty water
But I’ve a sickness that is making me laugh
See we have boat but we don't think it
We’re scared we’ll sink but we’ll drink it
If we never find that raft
We will sink down to the bottom of the ocean
With the fishes that glow in the dark

But you and I well we’ll sink down side by side
And time it won’t mean a thing
I’ll be your underwater groom
You’ll be my underwater bride
And oh the lights are fading my love
And oh the water’s filling me up
And oh the lights are fading my love

Starlings Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Well, we watched the starlings fly,
Around the burnt-down pier and die,
Spilled my coffee on my sleeve,
She wiped it with a smile,
And told me I was juvenile,
And kissed me softly on my cheek

And her hair danced in the breeze,
Like a thousand swinging trees,
In a forest lying next to stormy seas

Well, we watched the wintry sky,
Turn a shade of turquoise, I,
Whispered softly, “I feel lost,”
She turned with laughing eyes,
And curled her lips towards the sky,
And said, “get your map out, then, you knob!”

And we laughed like a pair of fools,
Like kids, they laugh at school,
And we wandered home before the day brought dusk

Blind Love Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Trying to hold a love that wants to go
Is like trying to catch a falling flake of snow
It glimmers while it can but it will melt between your hands, you know
To keep alive a love that wants to die
You teach the birds to swim, implore the fish to fly
But gills are made for water, and feathers for the sky, y’know
OH OH OH OH OH OH [x2]

To find a love that’s new where do you start?
It’s like trying to find the light switch in the dark
But falling over mess you left unaddressed inside your heart
OH OH OH OH OH OH [x2]

But I will find love, that’s a blind love
It’s the kind of love I need
Oh well I’ll find love, that’s a blind love
It’s the kind of love I need
OH OH OH OH OH OH [x4]

Snowflakes Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Wide Eyes Blind Love
Every light will fade into the dark,
But every night will die just like the last,
Snowflakes on the water,
Snowflakes on the frozen sea,
Snowflakes in the playground,
Snowflakes clothing naked trees

No stars in sight lying on the lawn,
But every night is darkest before dawn
Snowflakes on the water,
Snowflakes on the frozen sea,
Snowflakes in the playground,
Snowflakes clothing naked trees

Community Centre Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
Well the sky’s turning purple
Above the community centre
And I’m sitting in a circle,
Telling my secrets to strangers
And they say I’ve got a problem
But I don’t know that I’ve got one
‘Cause you never know that you’ve got one
‘Til someone comes along and spots one

They say it’s the hardest step
But it’s the first one of many
And my feet are stuck to the ground
And I can’t seem to take any
I could tell them I just came
For the free cup of tea and the biscuit
And make my way towards the door
But I don’t think I can risk it

‘Cause I never wanted to stay,
But the morning came so soon
And we all know the words,
But we just sing them out of tune

‘Cause I had my first drink when I was fourteen,
And I knew that I was in trouble
‘Cause I woke up the next morning
With my face down in the rubble
And everyone was drinking singles
I pour myself a double,
I just needed a little bit more

And now I’m sitting here with my name badge
And I’m listening to the same sad stories
About their old dads,
Who’re making all the same
Bad turning’s at their crossroads
And drowning all their sorrows,
Without any lifeguard around

Oh no, I never wanted to stay
But the morning came so soon
And oh, we all know the words
But we just sing them out of tune
And oh, oh no

And the sky’s turning dark
So we step out into the car-park
And I see you all same place, same time next week
But before we go our separate ways
Theres just one thing I’d like to say is,
Anybody up for a drink

Fairytales & Firesides Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
We are bitter losers, snarling through our smiles
We’re the lost boys, in the supermarket isles
We’re Christmas dogs, dumped by the side of the road
Confused, we will run for miles
We are road rage
We are stone age
We are wild

We are busted light bulbs, in a backstreet neon sign
We’re the shaking gun, in a service station line
We’ll drink though we’re drunk,
We’ll sink though we’ve sunk
We’re fucked but we say that we’re fine
We are rampage,
Missing back page’s in our spine

We long, for journeys and the roadside
We long, for starlight and the low tide
Yeah, we long, for fairy tales and firesides
And oh,

We are coffeehouse cynics,
Too righteous, too rigid to believe
Disappointed romantics,
Scraping the heart’s from our sleeves
We’re the toothless drunk,
We’re the ageing punk
Yeah, we are Adam,
We’re the apple and we’re Eve
We are beggars with shiny pennies, on our knees

We long, for sunlight on the hillsides
Yeah, we long, for yesterdays and hindsight
Oh, we long, for fairy tales and firesides
And oh,

Yeah we long for carnivals and fairground rides
Oh, we long for journeys and the roadsides
Oh, we long for fairy tales and firesides

Divers & Submarines Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
Well I clung to you,
Like cat hair clings to a woollen shirt
You needed me, like a wedding dress needs dirt
The more that I wanted, the harder I squeezed
The harder I squeezed, the less you could breathe
And we sunk down to the bottom
Yeah, we sunk down to the bottom of the sea
Yeah, we sunk down to the bottom of the sea

And I cried for you,
Like a widow cries at her lover’s grave
You haunted me through my stinging nights,
And aching days
The more that you struggled, the tighter the knots,
The tighter the knots, the lower we got

And we sunk down to the bottom
Yeah, we sunk down to the bottom of the sea
Yeah, we sunk down to the bottom of the sea
Yeah, we sunk down to the bottom of the sea
Oh no,
‘Cause I saw divers and submarines
And I saw divers and submarines
Oh, I saw divers and submarines

Facebook Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
Looking at pictures on Facebook,
Of your ex-girlfriend
At three in the morning
Never helped anyone,
Never helped anyone,
Never helped

Getting so drunk you fall over
Singing up at lamp-posts
At two in the morning
Never helped anyone,
Never helped anyone,
Never helped

‘Cause it’s so pure you can hardly taste it
Oh, it’s so pure you can hardly taste it

Going to parties with friends,
Who are friends of friends
At one in the morning
Never helped anyone,
Never helped anyone,
Never helped

Eleven o’clock in the pub
Drinking everything in sight,
But still not getting drunk
No, never helped anyone,
Never helped anyone
Never helped

Oh, it’s so pure you can hardly taste it
Oh, it’s so pure you can hardly taste it

So just hold on
When the party’s over,
And all your friends are going home
With their girlfriends to their dog or beds

Yeah, just hold on
When the party’s over
And you can’t help the world’s spinning
‘Cause heartbreak goes straight to your head

Looking at pictures on Facebook
Of your ex-girlfriend
At three in the morning
Never helped anyone,
Never helped anyone,
Never helped me

House On A Hill Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
In an old house on a hillside
Next to the sea
Far from the madness, that folds around me
Peaceful and gentle, like sails on the breeze

In an old house on a hillside
Next to the sea
There’s a warm light on a cold night
And clean cotton sheets
Soap smelling skin and tingling feet
With stars lining the skyline
And shine through the trees

In an old house on a hillside
Next to the sea
And when the autumn comes down
We’ll get what we need from the town
And all of our friends will be round

In an old house on a hillside
Next to the sea
Moon white as paper and night like asleep
With old things behind us and new things to be

In an old house on a hillside
Next to the sea
And when the sunshine comes down,
My hair will turn golden
And my skin will turn brown
And all of our friends will be round

Two Tales Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
Light up my lantern, I’ll cut you a path,
We’ve walked for hours and it’s getting dark
We left the roadside in search of aid,
Wind-screen shattered and tire marks made
I’ve never seen someone bleeding like this,
Rip off your sleeve and clench your wrist

I’ll light the stove and sit by the hearth,
Orangey glow light the wintry dark
We kept her bedroom exactly the same,
Winters they followed and Summers they came
He’d bash around, banging down on the floor
I sit alone with an eye on the door

Stop in this clearing, we’ll stay here tonight
Press up against me, I’ll hold you so tight
I got these matches, we’ll let off some smoke
And maybe they’ll see up and maybe they won’t
Blanket of leaves hide the light from the stars,
I’ll lie awake listening out for cars

He stares through curtains when he talks to the night,
I sit and listen for tires on the drive
I keep on waiting and he keep on talking
Just stop him talking, please stop him talking

No, give me silence
Give me silence,
Give me silence
Oh, no…

Intacto Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
Well if love is blind,
Then home’s where the heart is
How we ever gonna get back where we started
From now on, run with blindfolds
Into the woods till the trees knock us out cold
Winds shriek like drunken females
On a hen night, last bit of fun,
Till he breaks her heart in a text or an email
She can deal with the bastard son

We’ve got a knife in our hearts and a fork in the road
We see a light in the dark but it’s fading like hope
I’ll make a promise just to break it for the sake of it
We think that we’re honest but truth is what we make it to be

Well a stitch in time saves nine, that’s fine
But we’ve all been proper stitched up this time
It’s a right old mess at a grand old time
Right and left, in front and behind
It’s Sunday, Sunday, another bloody Sunday
Just a day till another bloody Monday
Morning, yawning, boring, snoring
In front of the boss when you just got a warning

We’ve got a knife in our hearts and a fork in the road
We see a light in the dark but it’s fading like hope
I’ll fall in love with you and love, you can fall in love with me
Just so there’s someone else to blame when it all falls down
When it all falls down, down, down
When it all falls down, down

So let’s get some fire in our hearts,
And a yellow brick road
I’m getting bored of the dark,
We could turn the lights on, you know
I’ll make a promise and I’ll keep it for the sake of it
We could tell the truth for once, see just how we take to it
We could walk in forests and climb up every tree
We’ll build our house upon the sand, every day in the sea
I’ll fall in love with you and love, you can fall in love with me

Just so there’s somebody else
Just so there’s somebody else
Just so there’s somebody else

Brick Walls Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
Well we dance without our shoes,
But there’s glass around our feet
And we’d walk around the town,
But we’re allergic to concrete
We’d be stuffed to the gills
But there’s nothing here to eat
No, there’s nothing here to eat
No, there’s nothing here to eat

Oh, well we’d love to rest our eyes
But we hear the floor boards creek
So, we lie with one eye open and
Clutch knives between the sheets
If there’s no rest for the wicked
Well, then we’ll never get no sleep
We’ll never get no sleep
No, we’ll never get no sleep
Oh, no…

‘Cause we’re banging our head’s against brick walls
And the walls are hard and our head’s are soft
It’s a painful way to get attention
It’s a painful way to get attention

We’re banging our head’s against brick walls
And the walls are hard and our head’s are soft
It’s a painful way to get attention
It’s a painful way to get attention

We’re banging our head’s against brick walls
And the walls are hard and our head’s are soft
It’s a painful way to get attention
It’s a painful way to get attention

We’re banging our head’s against brick walls
And the walls are hard and our head’s are soft
It’s a painful way to get attention
It’s a painful way to get attention

We’re banging our head’s against brick walls
And the walls are hard and our head’s are soft
It’s a painful way to get attention
It’s a painful way to get attention

We’re banging our head’s against brick walls
And the walls are hard and our head’s are soft
It’s a painful way to get attention
It’s a painful way to get attention, no

Crows In Snow Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Divers And Submarines
Wind-screen wiper’s never gonna stop,
Never stop wiping all the snow from the top of our car,
A car that has travelled so far from our homes,
It’s never good to feel alone

But we’ve got what we’ve got
It’s friends that we’ve got in a car,
A car that has travelled so far from our homes,
It never feels good to be alone

You’re in the headlights,
Skidding out into the road
Like a deer, scared and covered in snow
Oh, you’re in the headlights,
Skidding out into the road
Like a deer, scared and covered in snow

Flakes, they fall on boxes and tins and cans
The tins and the cans that fall from bins and hands
And our hands we hold in such a hurry in a world,

That doesn’t seem to care about
Themselves or each other
Or themselves or each other,
Or sisters or mothers,
Or themselves or each other,
Or architects or brothers,
Or themselves or each other,
Or astronauts or fathers,
Or themselves or each other,
Or themselves

So, kiss me here beneath the street lights
In a lay-by, all covered in snow oh!
Yeah, kiss me here beneath the street lights
And oh, in a lay-by, all covered in snow for now

You and I, we’ve always been crows,
Hiding black wings beneath the snow
You and I, we’ve always been crows,
Hiding yellow feet beneath the snow

You’re in the headlights, darling oh!
And you’re flying out over the road, no, no
And you’re covered in snow
And oh, you’re in the headlights, darling now
You’re flying out over the road
And you’re covered in snow

Month Of Sundays Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
Well I've been living in this month of Sundays,
For so long I don't remember Saturday night,
Broken records don't play new tunes,
Except for once in a blue Moon,
And I have looked and the Moon is still white.

And I've pinned some hope to the summit of some day,
Someone somewhere may do something with this light,
But smokers lungs don't blow balloons,
Except for once in a blue Moon,
And I've looked but the Moon is still white.

Rusty guns fire rusty shots,
Leopards never change their spots,
And fireworks always fade to soon,
Empty words don't mean a lot,
And from me thats all you've got,
But I swear to you one day,
We'll stand beneath a blue Moon.

Well I've been living in this month of Sundays,
And I forget what Monday morning feels like,
Blushing brides and handsome grooms,
Deep in debt from honeymoons,
Stare above but the Moon is still white.

And I have wondered in to wondering if one day,
When the war is won and one finally make two,
Will we think not of what we're not,
And think of only what we've got,
And we'll go dancing underneath a blue Moon.

Oh black kettles and black pots,
Seem to fight an awful lot,
They make the kitchen the most uncomfortable of rooms,
Empty words don't mean a lot,
And from me that's all you've got,
But I swear to you darling one day,
We'll stand beneath a blue Moon.

oh oh oh,
oh oh oh,
oh oh oh oh,
oh oh oh,
oh oh oh,
oh oh oh oh,

So I've been living in this month of Sundays,
And I don't know when this month may be through,
But will you tell me that you'll wait,
For as long as it may take,
And I swear darling I'll show you a blue Moon,
Oh my darling I will show you a blue Moon.

What You're Thinking Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
You’re just a stones throw from me,
But throwing stones could never be,
The perfect way to start.

Cos sticks and stones make broken bones,
And empty words make broken homes,
But it’s love that broke our hearts.

If I knew what you were thinking,
I would stop this boat from sinking,
But darling you are like the sand,
And you’re slipping through my hands,
I just don’t know what you’re thinking.

You’re just a photo in a draw,
But photographs are not much more,
Than ghosts we can’t forget.

You’re just a red rag to a bull,
You’re just a false hope for a fool,
But its as close as I can get.

If I knew what you were thinking,
I would stop this boat from sinking,
But darling you are like the sun,
Setting when my evening comes,
I just don’t know what you’re thinking.

And I would stop the sky from falling,
If I knew, if I knew,
And I would love you every morning,
If I knew, if I knew.

If I knew what you were thinking,
I would stop this boat from sinking,
But darling you are like the stars,
I know I can’t reach that far,
I just don’t know what you’re thinking.

Shape Of Love Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
I only came inside to get out of the rain,
And by the looks of things she may well have done the same,
But I swear I know that face but I don’t know her name,
She’s the shape of love.

I stir my tea and throw away wet cigarettes,
I watch her shivering through her rain sodden dress,
I know her make up runs and her hair may be a mess,
But she’s the shape of love.

I don’t ever want the rain to stop,
I don’t ever want to leave this coffee shop,
I don’t ever want the clouds to part,
Cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart.

I only came inside to get out of the wind,
But now I’m here let it blow yeah let it sing,
Cos I don’t know how this ones gonna end or how it may begin,
But she’s the shape of love.

I don’t ever want the sun to shine,
I don’t ever want to leave this one behind,
I don’t ever want the summer time to start,
Cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart.

I don’t ever want the rain to stop,
I don’t ever want to leave this coffee shop,
I don’t ever want the clouds to part,
cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart,
I don’t ever want the sun to shine,
I don’t ever want to leave this one behind,
And I don’t ever want the summer time to start,
Cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart.

The One You Love Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
We’re all looking,
That’s what she said,
For someone to share our thoughts,
For someone to share our beds.

But if you find someone that doesn’t try to change you,
If you find someone that doesn’t have to blame you,
If you find someone you don’t need to explain to,
You’ve found the one you love.

We’re all searching,
Thats all I know,
For someone to keep us warm,
When the rain soaks through our clothes.

But if you find a hand to hold when the night comes,
To be there when you’re old and your frightened,
If you find some one who loves you with the lights on,
You’ve found the one you love.

So hold it near,
Cos love it comes so quickly and then it goes,
And be careful my dear,
Cos the very thing that makes you,
Could be the thing that breaks you,
You know.

If you find someone who doesn’t undermine you,
If you find someone who doesn’t drag behind you,
If you find someone that loves you just like I do,
You’ve found the one you love.

Golden Thread Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
There’s lights on in a window,
And a sign post in the snow,
There’s a golden coin beneath your pillow.

There’s parachutes above you,
And life boats below,
And a heart that loves you,
Yeah I think you know.

There’s treasure maps well hidden,
And diamonds in the dirt,
There’s a golden thread weaved in to your shirt.

There’s a kiss for every tear,
That rolls down your cheek,
And words I shouldn’t hear and words you shouldn’t speak.

So tell me one more lie my dear,
Whisper softly so nobody hears,
Keep me hanging on for another year,
Oh tell me one more lie my dear.

Well theres whisky and blankets,
And a bonfire when your cold,
I’ll hold a golden breathe till I’m silver and old.

With only hope to keep alive,
And only time to kill,
There’s a fool that loved you and he loves you still.

So tell me one more lie my dear,
Whisper softly so nobody hears,
Keep me hanging on for another year,
Oh tell me one more lie my dear.

Spin me one more tale sweet heart,
Weave golden needle and thread through my heart,
Whisper all the things you know I long to hear,
Oh tell me one more lie my dear.

Rivers Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
There’s wood chip on the walls,
There’s wood on the stove,
You would if you could but you cannot I know,
But I’m still yours alone.

We’d lie on our backs,
We’d lie on your floor,
But we lied so much we don’t talk any more,
But I’m still yours alone,
You said you were tired I said I feel the same,
I put on my shoes and I got on the train.

To see sunlight fade and the shadows grow long,
To see rivers go winding blindly back to the storm,
And the rickety tracks they’re taking me back to where I used to belong.

There’s a weight on our shoulders,
A weight to your tone,
You wait on tables I wait by the phone,
And I’m still yours alone.

You blew out the candles when we fell apart,
I’m not childish just scared of the dark.

I see sunlight fade and the shadows grow long,
To see rivers go winding blindly back to the storm,
And the rickety tracks they are taking me back to where i used to belong.

oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh

I feel sunlight fade and the shadows grow long,
I see rivers go winding blindly back to the storm,
And the rickety tracks taking me back to where I used to belong.

Travelling Song Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
This is your travelling song,
And I hope it sees you well,
Through train rides and hotels.

This is your travelling song,
And on the window of the train,
With your finger write my name.

But I could sell my watch and buy a ticket,
But my dear I fear I would impede,
So this is your travelling song my love,
I hope you find everything you need.

This is your travelling song,
And here’s one for the road,
The highway and the code.

This is your travelling song,
And I wont ask you to stay,
Cos life don’t work that way.

But I could try and fit inside your suitcase,
But my feet would stick out of the end,
So this is your travelling song my love,
Come find me when your travelling ends,
This is your travelling song my love,
Come find me when your travelling ends.

The Girl Running Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
I see the girl running,
With no shoes on her feet,
Jumping shade to shadow,
In this deafening heat.

And I hear the trains coming,
And the drunk man singing on the street,
And the fan on the ceiling,
Reeling,
Me in to sleep.

And I dream silent movies,
Black and white memories I suppose,
They’re the same old stories,
But wearing in different clothes.

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 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 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

So where’s the girl running,
With no shoes on her feet,
Cos there’s no shade nor shadow,
In this deafening heat.

Diamonds Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
Well I spoke to this man,
Said he’d been to the moon,
Carved his name in the ground,
Saw the world spinning round,
And came back that afternoon.

And I laughed at this man,
Said he’d been lost at sea,
Heard the sirens call,
Seen the pirates fall,
To the monsters in the deep.

I said I’d heard some tall tales,
Some good stories in my time,
When I asked him for proof,
He just showed me the truth,
That was dancing in his eyes.

I could not believe this man,
Said he was a millionaire,
He said I know I dress in rags,
But I drive a vintage Jag,
And I’ve got a diamond chandelier.

I said I think I need a drink,
And made my way outside,
You know I’d swear this was a spoof,
If it wasn’t for the truth,
That was dancing in his eyes.

When I came back in the room,
The man had disappeared,
He left a rock from the moon,
And eyepatch and a diamond,
From a chandelier.

Bloodstains Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
I’m aching and you’re aching with these dull and empty hearts,
We’re waiting for somebody to rip our ribs apart,
And to seize with a steady hand our dull and empty hearts,
Our hearts.

I’m taking and you’re taking we’ve forgotten how to give,
I’m faking it, you’re breaking it and its just the way it is,
So we’ll leave here tonight but not before we give each other back our hearts.

Cos our love,
Left us long ago,
When we were both asleep,
Leaving blood stains in the snow,
Leaving blood stains in the snow.

I’m waiting and you’re waiting but this trains not gonna come,
You’re voice has started grating and I hate what we’ve become,
See there’s no future at this station we’re just feeding off the crumbs,
of our hearts.

I’m shaking and you’re shaking its just the way its got to be,
In this love abandoned Autumn we’ll go raking up the leaves,
The leaves that have fallen from these cold and dying trees in our hearts.

Cos our love,
Left us long ago,
When we were both asleep,
Leaving blood stains in the snow.

Well I’m lonely like you’re lonely,
But its only cos its thrown me,
Like its thrown you I don’t own you,
And my darling you don’t own me,
And its kicking and its yelling,
And its bruising and its swelling,
But the writings on the wall,
And we both know what its been telling us to do,
Telling us to do.

Well I’m crying and your crying in to silent salty lakes,
The road has turned to ice and we haven’t any brakes,
So while the wall keeps getting closer,
I fear its too late not to break our hearts.

Flight Of The Crow Lyrics

Artist : PASSENGER
Album : Flight Of The Crow
Sometimes I get tired of waking up on my own,
And sometimes I feel like I want to go home,
But the cars they keep on driving,
Down a road that doesn’t seem to end.

So we’re following arrows and the flight of the crow,
Living wide screen but what good is it though,
When life gets narrower the further you go,
Suns set before they rise.

It’s there in the shadows where nobody goes,
It’s there in the dark but what good is it though,
It’s a vanishing point on a shimmering road,
And there when I close my eyes.

Sometimes its hard to know the way to go,
When the waters rise around you,
And the fire rages down below.

So we’re following arrows and the flight of the crow,
Living wide screen but what good is it though,
When life gets narrower the further you go,
Suns set before they rise.

It’s there in the shadows where nobody goes,
It’s there in the dark but what good is it though,
It’s a vanishing point on a shimmering road,
And there when I close my eyes.

oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh

Cos we’re bullets and we’re fired from shotguns flying through birthdays and new years,
Yeah we’re rolling stones but the moss keeps growing round our hearts and our eyes and our ears,
Cos we’re bullets and we’re fired from shotguns flying through birthdays and new years,
Yeah we’re rolling stones but the moss keeps growing round our hearts and our eyes and our ears.

So we’re following arrows and the flight of the crow,
Living wide screen but what good is it though,
When life gets narrower the further you go,
Suns set before they rise.

It’s there in the shadows where nobody goes,
It’s there in the dark but what good is it though,
It’s a vanishing point on a shimmering road,
And there when I close my eyes,
There when I close my eyes,
Only there when I close my eyes.

Whenever You Need Somebody Lyrics

Artist : RICK ASTLEY
Album : Whenever You Need Somebody
I'll bring my love to you
I'll bring my love to you

Ive been stood up messed around
And taken for a fool
But next time round
I'm gonna change the rules
And I don't care about the things that people say
It's you I think about each and everyday
It's much too late for you to change your ways
I can't keep holding on expecting you to stay
When you're all alone and if you're feeling down
Call me, and I'll be around

Whenever you need somebody
I'll bring my love to you
You don't have to say you love me
I just wanna be with you

Lost inside your love is where I wanna be
I'm just asking you to spend some time with me
Time and time you say you wanna be free
And you can have some fun that's okay with me
You will never know just how good I feel
The joy inside of me makes me feel so real
When you're all alone and if you're feeling down
Call me, and I'll be around

Whenever you need somebody
I'll bring my love to you
You don't have to say you love me
I just wanna be with you

I'll bring my love to you
I just wanna be with you
[Repeat]

It's much too late for you to change your ways
I can't keep holding on expecting you to stay
When you're all alone and if you're feeling down
I'll be, I'll be around

Whenever you need somebody
I'll bring my love to you
You don't have to say you love me
I just wanna be with you
[Repeat to fade]

Together Forever Lyrics

Artist : RICK ASTLEY
Album : Whenever You Need Somebody
If there's anything you need
All you have to do is say
You know you satisfy everything in me
We shouldn't waste a single day

So don't stop me falling
It's destiny calling
A power I just can't deny
It's never changing
Can't you hear me, I'm saying
I want you for the rest of my life

Together forever and never to part
Together forever we two
And don't you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you

If they ever get you down
There's always something I can do
Because I wouldn't ever wanna see you frown
I'll always do what's best for you

There ain't no mistaking
It's true love we're making
Something to last for all time
It's never changing
Can't you hear me, I'm saying
I want you for the rest of my life

Together forever and never to part
Together forever we two
And don't you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you

So don't stop me falling
It's destiny calling
A power I just can't deny
It's never changing
Can't you hear me, I'm saying
I want you for the rest of my life

Together forever and never to part
Together forever we two
And don't you know
I would move heaven and earth
To be together forever with you

It Would Take A Strong Strong Man Lyrics

Artist : RICK ASTLEY
Album : Whenever You Need Somebody
My heart starts breaking
When I think of making
A plan to let you go
I keep thinking maybe tomorrow
I'm gonna let you know
But I when I think about leaving
I think about losing
The only love I ever knew
Every time I think of you

My heart starts aching
My hands keep shaking
And you know, you know, you know

It would take a strong, strong man
To ever let you go (to ever let you go)
To ever let you go

My heart's been hurting
When I see you flirting
Every night out on the floor
I keep thinking maybe tomorrow
You'll grow to love me more
But whenever we're together
I could leave you never
Even though you treat me cruel
Every time I look at you

My heart starts aching
My hands keep shaking
And you know, you know, you know

It would take a strong, strong man
To ever let you go (to ever let you go)
To ever let you go

I tried to resist you
When you're gone, all I ever do is miss you
Anyone in love would know
Anyone with half a heart
Could never let you go

But I when I think about leaving
I think about losing
The only girl I ever loved
Can't you tell me why do you hurt me
I guess some people never see
Especially a fool like me

My heart starts aching
My hands keep shaking
And you know, you know, you know

It would take a strong, strong man
To ever let you go (to ever let you go)
To ever let you go

To ever let you go
I'll never let you go
(To ever let you go)

The Love Has Gone Lyrics

Artist : RICK ASTLEY
Album : Whenever You Need Somebody
The love has gone
The love has gone, will we ever be the same
The feelings wrong, the joy has turned to pain

Wake up beside you, and hear you breathing
And I can feel you in my arms
No one can know just how I'm feeling
Knowing that our love can come to no harm

But as I open my eyes
Then I start to realise
That you're gone and I can't go on

The love has gone, will we ever be the same
The feeling's wrong, the joy has turned to pain
The love is gone, will we ever be the same
The feeling's wrong, the joy has turned to pain

What have I done girl, to make you leave me
Didn't I love you for all those years

If you open your eyes
Baby, then you'll realise
That you're wrong, and I can't go on
You know I can't go on

The love has gone, will we ever be the same
The feeling's wrong, the joy has turned to pain
The love is gone, will we ever be the same
The feeling's wrong, the joy has turned to pain

Nothing will ever come between us
If you will just take me back once more
I'll show you just how much I love you
If you'll just come walking through that door

The love has gone, will we ever be the same
The feeling's wrong, the joy has turned to pain
The love is gone, will we ever be the same
The feeling's wrong, the joy has turned to pain

[Chorus to fade]

Don't Say Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : RICK ASTLEY
Album : Whenever You Need Somebody
Don't say goodbye, girl (goodbye, girl)
Don't make me cry, girl (cry, girl)
'Cos I love you (love you)

Used to have such fun
Used to have good times
But now those days are gone
Used to have it all
Used to get on fine
But things just went wrong

Used to be in love
Thought we had it made
But everything has changed
We just grew apart
No one is to blame

Woh, time has made us strangers
Maybe we can't go on
But if love can take the changes

Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl
Don't throw it all away
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)
Don't make me cry, girl
You're my girl
Don't say goodbye to me
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)

We could go along
Saying things were fine
But we're just fooling ourselves
Maybe we should
Talk it out right now
And put things on the line

Everyone in love
Goes through times like these
It's just part of the game
I remember
I used to call your name

Woh, things don't have to be this way
Love is the answer now
Maybe we could start again today

Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl
Don't throw it all away
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)
Don't make me cry, girl
You're my girl
Don't say goodbye to me
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)

Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl
Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl
Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl
Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl

Woh, time has made us strangers
Maybe we can't go on
But if love can take the changes

Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl
Don't throw it all away
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)
Don't make me cry, girl
'Cos you're my girl"
I couldn't live without you, no
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)

Don't say goodbye, girl
Goodbye, girl
I want to spend my life with you
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)
Don't make me cry, girl
You're my girl
Don't say goodbye to me
'Cos I love you
Yes I do (yes I do)

Slipping Away Lyrics

Artist : RICK ASTLEY
Album : Whenever You Need Somebody
I can feel your love slipping away
Draining from my heart each and every day
I can feel your love slipping away
Draining from my heart each and every day

People ask me how's your love affair
I can only tell them lies
When they ask me where you are tonight
I can only fantasise

You may find somebody new
You'll say you love him, that's not true

I can feel your love slipping away
Draining from my heart each and every day
I can feel your love slipping away
Draining from my heart each and every day

Everybody thinks we're so in love
But things aren't always what they seem
Even my best friend says we're so good
Just how wrong can a person be

You may find somebody new
You'll say you love him, that's not true

I can feel your love slipping away
Draining from my heart each and every day
I can feel your love slipping away
Draining from my heart each and every day

[repeat chorus to fade]

No More Looking For Love Lyrics

Artist : RICK ASTLEY
Album : Whenever You Need Somebody
I've been waiting
For a love to call my own
I've been hoping
You would say you're coming home
I will put my arms around you
Baby, I'm so glad I found you
There ain't nothing I can do
Now that I'm in love with you

No more looking for love
Now that I'm in love with you
No, there's no more looking for love
Now I've found a love that's true

I've been thinking
'Bout the way you looked last night
I remember how we held each other tight
As we lay beside the fire
Felt the heat of pure desire
There ain't nothing I can do
Now that I'm in love with you

No more looking for love
Now that I'm in love with you
No, there's no more looking for love
Now I've found a love that's true

I'm so glad that love has come around
I'm so thankful for the love I've found

No more looking for love
Now that I'm in love with you
No, there's no more looking for love
Now I've found a love that's true
