Termite Song Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
Couldn't make it up as we go along
I don't have any words to put into your song
Looking through the junkyard of your heart
I need to find an engine for my car

Don't know where you are
Don't know where you are
When I drive
When I drive around the bend
Singing bye bye bye bye...

And though I really tried, I never have been good
And for my missing heart, I carve one out of wood
Now I see the termites crawling into me
After they are finished, I wonder where you'll be

I wonder where you'll be
I wonder where you'll be
When I drive
When I drive around the bend
Singing bye bye bye bye...

You never have been young
You never have been sane
And if you say that you don't care,
In your eyes I see the shame
Looking through the window of your mind
I see your lonely shadow running out of time

Running out of time
Running out of time
When I drive
When I drive around the bend
Singing bye bye bye bye...

Permission Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
I got a new job
I got a new job
And I don't need your permission
To fade away

I'm right behind you
I'm right behind you
And I don't need your permission
To make my play

On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up (on the way down, on the way down)

On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up (fallin' up, fallin' up)

I'm right inside you
I'm right inside you
And I don't need your permission
To dig your grave

I've got religion
I've got religion
And I don't need your permission
To pray for you

On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up (on the way down, on the way down)

On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up (fallin' up, fallin' up)

On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up (on the way down, on the way down)

On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up
On the way down, you're fallin' up (fallin' up...)

Tell the darkness what you're thinking
Tell the darkness what you see
You got everything you wanted

In the darkness you are naked
In the darkness you are near
You got everything you wanted

Oh the world will never hear your pain
Oh the world will never hear you cry
Fly, the way you fly
Fly, the way you fly
Fly, the way you fly

Favorite Girl Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
In your version of this world
you're everybody's favorite girl
but that don't mean I'll be the victim
of any pain you are inflicting today

I don't know what I should do
I've been so happy bein' unhappy with you
but I just had a revelation
my heart's been dyin' of starvation
and I need ... somebody who will feed me

And if salvation only comes when you fall
ohhhhh Lord - ohh
It's so hard for me to believe
ohhhhh Lord - ohh
I'm still waitin' for you to call
ohhhhh Lord - ohh
Trapped inside my memory
ohhhhh Lord

Pretending to be someone you know nothing about
Oh I wish you were someone I knew nothing about
You're lookin' for any explanation
your words they only find a meaning in between
what's real and what will only ever be your dream

And if salvation only comes when you fall
ohhhhh Lord - oooh
It's so hard for me to believe
ohhhhh Lord - oooh
I'm still waitin for you to call
ohhhhh Lord - oooh
Trapped inside my misery
ohhhhh Lord - oooh

Will salvation only come if I fall
ohhh Lord oooh
Will salvation only come if I fall
ohhh Lord oooh
And will salvation only come if I fall
If I fall

You Are The Dark Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
I'm up all night
Against my will
My medicine
Won't let me feel
Anything at all

The doctor gave me sleeping pills
And I took one
Then I feel all alone
Sleeping like a stone

And babe
You were the light
But now
You are the dark

But dream about the autumn leaves
And you were one
Falling in the sun
Where are you now?

A tv burns
A hollow room
I cleaned it up
And now I don't know what to do
I'm just lying down

And babe
You were the light
And now
You are the dark

I guess I live
Up in my head
I call you up
But my phone is dead
And now it's too much

The doctor said I need a cure
But what I got
He's not really sure
And I won't say much

And babe
You were the light
And now
You are the dark

And babe
You were the light
And now
You are the dark

In The Night Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
And where we live is where we hide
'Cause we can't forgive what's inside
We have sweet love (we have sweet love)
We have sweet love (we have sweet love)

In the night
Voices will fight
Voices of shadows and the runaways
Running from love
And every sorrow left behind

And when we wake up
It's already dark
And I touch your face,
I feel your heart
We have sweet love (we have sweet love)
We have sweet love (we have sweet love)

In the night
Voices will fight
Voices of shadows and the runaways
Running from love
And every sorrow left behind
In the night
Voices will fight
Voices of shadows and the runaways
Running from love
And every sorrow left behind
In the night
Voices will fight
Voices of shadows and the runaways
Running from love
And every sorrow left behind
In the night
Voices will fight
Voices of shadows and the runaways
Running from love
And every sorrow left behind

Blue Lips Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
I prayed to god from hell
Run like a midnight bell
Dancing naked in these streets
Thought I was jesus christ
As I dug out my eyes
And threw them past the prison gates

So I still can't explain
What I had to do
To try and make it
Since your red lips turned blue

Now I'm a hunted man
Sining the song you sung
Wearing the noose from which you hung
I guess we lost the war
The air I breathed before
Only fill the dead man's lungs

So I still can't explain
What I had to do
To try and make it
Since your red lips turned blue

The devil is the lord
Of this confusing world
Where all the wrong dreams come true
I never needed light
I never felt like I was right
Did not deserve the love i knew

So I still can't explain
What I had to do
To try and make it
Since your red lips turned blue

You've Been Loved Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
You don't know how you feel
Are you a dream?
Are you for real?
Cause you don't ever slow down
To find what you lost or lose what you found

No one's saying what you need to hear

You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved

It's always hard to admit
Most days you feel like you don't exist
Temptation sneaks past your fists
Until the devil won't let you resist

Oblivion is what you want

But you've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved
You've been loved

What you're gonna do with your life?
What you're gonna do with your life?
What you're gonna do with your life?
What you're gonna do with your life?

You've been loved (all the way)
You've been loved (all the way)
You've been loved (all the way)
You've been loved

You Could Be In Jail Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Redemption's Son
Don't believe in dreams
You are from a machine
Oh don't
You could be in jail

Brainwashing you
They control
Everything that you do
Oh don't
You could be in jail

They say they have the answer
But no one knows a thing
They say they know your way home
Some place you've already been

Don't believe in love
They came
Without any blood
Oh don't
You could be in jail

Take in what you make
Say they will save you
Giving back what you gave
Oh don't
You could be in jail

They say they have the answer
But no one knows a thing
They say they know your way home
Some place you've already been

Can't Exist Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
Well I can't exist
When you disappear
Disintegrate tonight
Swallow everything

Sister don't be scared
A thousand times or more
I've walked away alive
On my feet again

(Kill/Give your life/love?)
I will wait for you mother
I will wait for you father
I will wait for you sister
I will wait for you brother

But I can't exist
So I can't explain
How I lost a thousand dollars
On the street again

Sister don't be scared
A thousand times or more
I've walked away alive
On my feet again

(Kill/Give your life/love?)
I will wait for you mother
I will wait for you father
I will wait for you sister
I will wait for you brother

Stumble And Pain Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
All your gifts come out of hell
You brought them back for love
Throw a bucket down into your well
You fill it with your blood

And you let it go
With the greatest ease
Cause something always stays the same
And always seems

With the need you never fill
Try to leave before it come
Like a man you've paid to kill
Asking you what should be done

And you let it go
With the greatest ease
Cause something always stays the same
And always seems

Sun down on a shady grin
Shaking hands on a sinking ship
Prostitute and a poison friend
Telling you you'll never quit

Devil's Broom Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
In the time when I can't get enough to make it
Get me back at the sense that I used to have
Waking up in the sun my face down on the pavement
Everything that I own in a garbage bag

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can't you see?
You mean everything to me...to me

Waking up in the tank, disorderly break-up
And no one here will even tell me what I did
With the guilt and the shame completely vacant
It's hard to stay alive when you don't know how to live

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can't you see?
You mean everything to me...to me

Since you've gone ain't nobody else gonna save me
Cause I can't trade a bottle for an empty room
I just pray that the lord is gonna come down and take me
Sweep me off the floor with the devil's broom

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can't you see?
You mean everything to me...to me

Echo Park Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
Walkin' with you down through Echo Park
The ghosts fillin' the trees
The fire never understands the spark
The way it is with you and me

Freedom
Freedom
Our love won't fade away
Freedom
Freedom
Our love it won't fade away

The children runnin' through the greenest field
The light of love pourin' down
And only you and I know how it feels
When no one else is around

Freedom
Freedom
Our love won't fade away
Freedom
Freedom
Our love it won't fade away

Freedom
Freedom
Our love won't fade away
Freedom
Freedom
Our love it won't fade away

Walkin' with you down from Echo Park
The ghosts fillin' the trees
The fire never understands the spark
The way it is with you and me

Even Tho Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
I'm getting cold
You used to have a heart
Now I guess its just a stone
You said Leave Me Alone
But even tho I'm here
You know that I'm already gone

Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone
Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone

We've got some time
So lets walk hand in hand together
And hold our heads up high
Since I can't read your mind
You've got to tell me what you're thinking
I won't write in the sky
I won't write in the sky

We're getting old
We've planted our seeds and now we wait for them to grow
You said I'll never show
You how I really feel or which way I'm gonna go

Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone
Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone

We've got some time
So lets walk hand in hand together
And hold our heads up high
Since I can't read your mind
You've got to tell me what you're thinking
I won't write in the sky
I won't write in the sky

No one to hold
The world will make a dream
And a prayer out of our bones
To find where we belong
Our shadows will remain
Even after we are gone

Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone
Gone, baby
Even tho I'm here you know that I'm already gone

Puppets Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
Give less than I take
Dream you up as anything
I have no memory
Every moment, eternally

I wanna try
To get away from everybody else
To get away from everybody else

I cut myself
But no blood came
And no one helped
Strings that we can't see
Puppet you
And puppet me

I wanna try
To get away from everybody else
To get away from everybody else

And you don't know
What its like to try
To change where you go
And break the lie
And you never show
What its like inside
To raise your (nose?)
And break your pride

Hearts crack like canes
As children break the spider's legs
Strays out in our yards
Of buried bones and boulevards

I wanna try
To get away from everybody else
To get away from everybody else

Wasted Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
If you're not sorry for who you are
Why are you sorry for where you been?
I know you carry a secret star
The one you got from your invisible friend

I met you walking in the New York night
I said, "Why are you walking so slow?"
You said, "I'm looking for a book I can write
And after that I got no place to go."

Wasted, I need to find a place to cry
Wasted, I need to find a place to cry

We stayed connected underneath the storm
You told me all the places you come from
I had a feeling I was being born
Inside your world where my heart could never be more

Wasted, I need to find a place to cry
Wasted, you need to find a place to cry
Wasted, I need to find a reason why
Wasted, I need to find a place to cry

If you're not sorry for who you are
Why are you sorry for where you been?
I know you carry a secret star
The one you got from your invisible friend

Wasted, I need to find a place to cry
Wasted, I need to find a place to cry

Failed Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
Now you're gone, and I don't know why
You removed yourself in the blink of an eye
When the seasons change, all you can do is cry
Now you're gone, and I don't know why

Maybe I failed, maybe I failed

(Whats it like where you are?)
The way you were I loved you
(Whats it like to fall that far?)
The way you were

I Am Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
You live in a darkness
Made out of your fear
Looking to the future
Never are you here

You are not a person
Nor are what you see
Beyond this world you live in
Beyond your memory

To find out what you really are
You must wake up from this long night
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am

Your world is in danger
But your world isn't real
You see what is imagined
Dreaming what you feel

To find out what you really are
You must wake up from this long night
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
Repeat the words I Am
I Am, I Am, I Am

A Smile That Explodes Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
Too young to fall
For a light I think I see
Can't say for sure
The plants have died,
My hair has grown
From the thought of you
Coming home

Cuz it ain't easier
Waking up at dawn
To find I lost my crown
If I found you there
With flowers in your hair

I'd hold you in my arms
Till we came back down
A smile that explodes
I could never understand

My room too small
To get by without the help of alcohol
Pin my arm to the wall
Now I'm too gone to fight
Not afraid to fall

Cuz it ain't easier
Waking up at dawn
To find I lost my crown
If I found you there
With flowers in your hair

I' d hold you in my arms
Until we came back down
A smile that explodes
I could never understand

I write one more
Letter I won't send
Except for across the floor

Leave Us Alone Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Our Shadows Will Remain
He was cut and then there was no fear
The dogs of hell within unborn
And like a ghost without an atmosphere
His voice sang without a song

Singing to the ships as the foghorns blow
Shipping light where darkness hides
The night was blind but it did see him go
For in this dark his light survives

Go away
Leave us alone
We don't know yet
Who you are
So far
From home

He stands before them as they judge his life
His shadow reaching underneath
He will fight he will reveal his knife
They will question his belief

They will shatter all his teeth
Blood from his mouth in darkness he can see
His suicide his love reborn
And hangin from a noose in secrecy
His mind and spirit will divorce

Go away
Leave us alone
We don't know yet
Who you are
So far
From home

Too Much To Hide Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
The needle says she'll tell you when she's through
No sense now in trying to believe in you

Too much to hide
In your own two eyes
Too much to hide
In your own world

There's some you know you follow into doom
By yourself and in an empty room

Too much to hide
In your own two eyes
Too much to hide
In your own world

Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone
(So far, oh)
Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone
(So far, oh)
Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone
(So far away)
Dream you're gone
Dream you're gone, so far gone
(So far away)

I'm down here and walking with you still
And part of me I guess always will

Too much to hide
In your own two eyes
Too much to hide
In your own world

Be here now

Black Lexus Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
Your black Lexus has
Two hundred thousand miles
Underneath the missing roads

You don't know where you're going
Almost anytime
Things lost just lighten up your load

Maybe you're headin' out
To LA
See if they'll put you in a show

First you'll check with the stars
Read both your sign and mine
In the back of the New York Post

You can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
And you can't find her
You can't find her
Everyday you feel a little curse

Now your car's been towed
You misread the sign
Something left to do
Must have slipped your mind

Got no money left
Guess you'll stick around
And anyway the stars
Said not to go right now

But you can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
And you can't find her
You can't find her
Everyday you look a little worse

You can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
You can't find her
You can't find her
Everyday you feel a little curse

You can't find her
You can't find her
In the mirror everything's reversed
You can't find her
You can't find her
Everyday you feel a little curse

Enough To Get Away Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
What's the difference from a Saturday night
Where the light spreads dark around the drunk hearts
In their headless hallways where bodies are
put on the market place
To happiness endlessly taking pills
With the young going down
I see nothing or nowhere
I know what I've found
Must be in paradise

Next year we will live in the country
With our money, by day the sky builds
Doing our laundry and renting us some random machines
Getting our religion and sex on the TV
Assumptions made simply to get away
Everyone old is already with me
On tiny decks enjoying midsummer weather and friendly company
And in their picture frames there you and I will be
Knowing what we've found

Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away

Bright drops of blood so my thoughts are
I turn to lie down but sleep stays far
I'm just an echo of the song going through my head
The light behides the ghost
But I'm the one that's dead
And I think of who you be
When you're here with me
Maybe it's a spiritual disease
Sliding through shoots of oblivion into infinity
Back into our maker's hands
No more rain or controversy
Knowing what we've found

Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away
Knowing what we've found
Enough to get away

Slide Away Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
No matter what you want
Do or say
I hope you make it to
Better days
If you're a junkie heart
Be reborn
And every dime in bag
Leave your home

If they don't get to you
Get to me
We're gonna walk a path
Ever free
And stare into the sun
Till we're blind
Destroying every thought
In our mind

What you say counts
What you say counts
Till you fall out away
As the night you crashed it all [?]
Till every piece grows strong [?]

No matter where you live
Where you've been
You found an open road
And a friend
If you're a peaceful soul
Peace will come
So don't you hide away
What you've done

What you say counts
What you say counts
Till you fall out (the way/back)[?]
As the night you crashed it all [?]
Till every piece grows strong [?]

Slide away
Now won't you
Slide away
Now won't you
Slide away
I want you all the way
I want you

Slide away
Now won't you
Slide away
Now won't you
Slide away
I want you all the way
I want you

Slide away
Now won't you
Slide away
Now won't you
Slide away
I want you all the way
I want you

Slide away

Electrical Storm Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
How do you live cold
Before you're young
You're so old

You're born and then you die
You're born and then you die
And you are born

Past the city and the thieves
Past the wolverines and trees
Until the sunrise
In the electrical storm

Last night with you
When we turned blue
I saw right through
When we turned blue

I can see you now
You are me
Anyhow

You're born and then you die
You're born and then you die
And you are born

Past the city and the thieves
Past the wolverines and trees
Until the sunrise
In the electrical storm

In the sunrise
In the sunrise
And we are born
In the electrical storm

In the sunrise
In the sunrise
And we are born
In the electrical storm

Last night with you
When we turned blue
Were you untrue
When we turned blue
When we turned blue

You Are Free Lyrics

Time is moving on
You and me
You and me
Suffering is gone

Those days are over now

I'm not afraid of anyone
I'm not afraid of losing myself
There ain't no self to lose
I'm not afraid of losing myself
There ain't no self to lose
I'm not afraid of losing myself
There ain't no self to lose
I'm not afraid

Time is moving on
You and me
You and me
Suffering is done
Let it be
Let it be

When you feel you're strong
You are free
You are free

Automatic Situation Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
Automatic who you blame
Like a moth into the flame
Burn your wings, have scars to show
Always gone before you go

It's all down from here
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)
The fall you prepared
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)

Damaged pride in a twisted heart
Little thief who was never caught
Wanna give you what she earns
Souvenirs of the wings she burns

It's all down from here
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)
The fall you prepared
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)

It's all down from here
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)
The fall you prepared
(Automatic, Automatic, Automatic situation)

When I Was Running Out Of Time Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
When I was running out of time
I turned it into a dream
And you went drifting into my mind
Things ain't the way that they seem
I turn you into a dream
And make it all go away
You know your hair looks different when you wear it that way
You've got a painted face and a body made of clay
You are my super star

They will fill you with big ideas
They'll hang your heart in the sky
I know you want to save the world
How long have you been that high
How long have you been that high
And did you make it all go away
You know your eyes look different when you look the other way
You've got a cheating heart bleeding emeralds everyday
You are a shooting star

Things ain't the same as when we was young
They hung us from shooting stars
Let's tell the world we're doing fine
I know how lucky we are
I know how lucky we are
To make it all go away
You know this world is topsy-turvy in days like today
We got a million souls looking for a place to stay
Each one a shooting star

Don't Tell Your Eyes Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
Don't tell your eyes
Don't tell your eyes
Your eyes are mine

Don't tell your mind
Don't tell your mind
Your mind is mine

Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know
Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know

Don't tell your dream
Don't tell your dream
Your dream is mine

Don't tell your sex
Don't tell your sex
Your sex is mine

Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know
Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know

Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know
Jesus loves you more than you know
More than you know

Don't Give Up On People Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
Give 'em one more chance
One more thing to say
I made a very big mistake
Followed by a thousand days

Don't give up on people
Who want you to stay

Satellites and moonbeams
Signal dreams to play
Last time I saw you
Was in the sunless time of day

Don't give up on people
Who want you to stay

Don't give up on people
Who want you to stay

Woman Lyrics

Album : Nuclear Daydream
Woman
Woman
You make me feel
Woman
Woman
Are you for real?

Cause I don't know if I make it on without you
I don't know if I could make it on my own back
Home

Mother

Are you right here?
Mother
Mother
I share your fear

Cause I don't know if I make it on without you
I don't know if I could make it on my own back
Home

Sister
Sister
You're here I see
Sister

You see through me

Cause I don't know if I make it on without you
I don't know if I could make it on my own back home

Woman

Are you for real
Woman
Woman
You make me feel

Cause I don't know if I make it on without you
I don't know if I could make it on my own back home

Nuclear Daydream Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Nuclear Daydream
You can hold your needle
You can point your gun
You can shoot and kill me
Or you could let me run

But I won't ever cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone

If there's a plan then tell me
If you know who you are
A princess or a mummy
A flower or a scar

So I don't have to cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone
Are now gone

What's it like to lose control?
Are you even here at all?

This is a nuclear daydream
It's my atomic bomb
I already lost my passage
I already lost our home

So I won't ever cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone

There's only dreams and numbers
And wishes left unsaid
In all the burning letters
Underneath our bed

Saying I won't ever cry for you anymore
The days when I would die for you are now gone
Are now gone
Are now gone
Are now gone

Diamond Ring Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
(You know it)

I wanna go out
But not really
I keep droppin' the bucket
Until it's dry
Until it's dry

I wanna go out
But not really
I keep stuffin' the muskett
Until you cry
Until you cry

You could be my diamond ring
I say You
You could be my diamond ring

I wanna go out
But not really
I keep droppin' the bucket
Until it's dry
Until it's dry

(Come on)

I wanna go out
But not really
I keep stuffin' your muskett
Until you fly
Until you fly

I say you could be my diamond ring
I say You
You could be my diamond ring
I say You
You could be my diamond ring
I say You
You could be my diamond ring

Baby yes, Baby yes-saaa [?]

I say you could be my diamond ring
I say You
You could be my diamond ring

You could be my diamond ring
I say You
You could be my diamond ring

Good Life Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
There is a ghost in each of us
Before we're ever born
There is a ghost in each of us
And all must learn mourn
Muhammad Ali
He said what's on his mind
Muhammad Ali
Could change the course of time
There is a ghost in each of us
Before we hit the grave
There is a ghost in each of us
A ghost we each must save
Muhammad Ali
Spoke in poetry
Muhammad Ali
Gave all to you and me
There is a ghost in all of us
Who runs when we're asleep
There is a ghost in all of us
A diamond you can't keep

Sometimes I want to take you home
Sometimes, sometimes I want to be alone
To wake up from the good life
To fix up from the dull night

Sometimes I want to take you home
Sometimes, sometimes I want to be alone
To wake up from the good life
To fix up from the dull night

To wake up from the good life
To fix up from the dull night

Oh, let's go
You
Let's go
Rock
And roll

To wake up from the good life
To fix up from the dull night
To wake up from the good life
To fix up from the dull night

Precious One Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
Taste you like a woman
Taste you like a woman in the evening sun
Taste you like a woman
Taste you like a woman you're my precious one

Lights come with fighters and live in dark circles
I've lived in your fires and now I'm comin' home

Taste you like a woman
Taste you like a woman after all we've done
Taste you like a woman
Taste you like a woman when I'm on my run

Lights come with fighters and live in dark circles
I've lived in your fires and now I'm comin' home
Comin' home

Taste you like a woman
Taste you like a woman in the evening sun
Taste you like a woman
Taste you like a woman you're my precious one

Lights come with fighters and live in dark circles
I've lived in your fires and now I'm comin' home

Lights come with fighters and live in dark circles
I've lived in your fires and now I'm comin' home
Comin' home

You know it's for you [x2]

Out of the sky

Here they come now
Here they come

So come on

Take Me Home Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
Take me home
Look good on your own
Take me home
Look good

I can see the sun
I think the evening's done
Take me home
You look good on your own

Sometimes it's good
To say goodbye
Before you make it
To the end of time
Yes, sometimes it's good
To say goodbye
Before you make it
To the end of time

Take me home
Take me home
Look good on your own

I can see the sun
I think we just begun
Please take me home
You look good

Sometimes it's good
To say goodbye
Before you make it
To the end of time
Sometimes it's good
To say goodbye
Before you make it
To the end of time

Take me home
I can see the sun
Take me home

Chicago Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
You're my best friend
I need you until the end
No, you I will never betray

Don't run away from yourself
Or follow anyone else
No, you never have to be a slave

If they don't play you in chicago
Oh no no no
And if they don't save you when you're lonely
Only you
Could see your light, see your light, see your light, you
Could see your light, see your light, see

Your mirror is destroyed
I see you now trying to avoid
The truth of who you really are

The heat will stay with the flame
So your beauty never will change
To me you will always be a star

And if they don't play you in chicago
Oh no no no
And if they don't save you when you're lonely
Only you
Could see your light, see your light, see your light, you
Could see your light, see your light, see

Some turn lunatic
Others learn how to forget
This world to which they just don't belong

I wonder who you will be
A dream with no memory
A beggar looking for one magic song

And if they don't play you in chicago
Oh no no no
And if they don't save you when you're lonely
Only you
Could see your light, see your light, see your light, you
Could see your light, [see what i see] see your light, (see what I see) see your light, you
Could see your light, [see what i see] see your light, (see what I see) see your light, you

Lonely Astronaut Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
Here comes the rain
Falling down like ecstasy
I feel your pain
Raining now inside of me

Far from where we're going
Away from where we've been
Everything we lost out here
One day must be lost again [2x]

The moon will rise
Worship lonely astronauts
To our surprise
We can never get the light we lost

With the weight of our emotions
Which are gone before they end
Are they here just to remind us
Of everything we've lost again
Everything we've lost again

When you cry your eyes are hollow [4x]

Send out the probe
To help us find eternity
It won't return
Or no one will be left to see

The stars are in their solitudes
The light it comes from them
By the time it hits our open eyes
All of it is lost again [2x]

We disappear
Into one another's mind
And reappear
With faith in something new to find
We are resurrecting our history so thin
With graduatin' needs to fill
The love we'll only lose again [2x]

When you cry your eyes are hollow [4x]

Cocaine Feet Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
You can feel
Numb in your bones
You and I live
Without anyone

Cocaine feet
Wrecked cities in the dark
Another dirty street
Where you don't belong

Don't you ever put me down on the white line
No matter what I put you through
Don't you ever put me down on the white line
No matter what I put you through
No matter what I put you through

Your brown head
Has too many thoughts
Your brown bed
Has too many spots

Where have you been
And who have you been with
Who did you kill
And who did you kiss

Don't you ever put me down on the white line
No matter what I put you through
Don't you ever put me down on the white line
No matter what I put you through
No matter what I put you through

Don't you ever put me down on the white line
No matter what I put you through
Don't you ever put me down on the white line
No matter what I put you through
Don't you ever put me down on the white line
No matter what I put you through
No matter what I put you through
No matter what I put you through
No matter what I put you through

Shake It Off Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
I can barely hear you talk

Shake it off
I can barely(/nearly/really) hear you walk
Shake it off
I can barely(/nearly/really) hear you walk

Take it down
One time
In my mind
It's blind
If I find
The time to rewind

Take it down
In my mind
One time
It's blind
I wish I could find
The time to rewind

Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
There really ain't no/that much to say or talk

Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
There really ain't much to say or talk

Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
There really ain't that much to say or talk

Lack A Vision Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
Because you lack a vision
You've been
Blinded by love

I say a prayer for a stranger
Oh he was
The last soul I see(n)

I want to tell you something
But I
Can barely speak

I turn out the lights
I know
I won't sleep

I love you
And I always will
I want to
Come back home, can I come back home
I hold you
Like I never will
I want to
Come back home, can I come back home

In the eyes of a stranger
I saw
The last part of me

I knew then for certain
We are
Never gonna be free

I think of what she told me
Well I
Know some things you can't teach

Like when you hold me
And I
Stay out of reach

I love you
(everything's different)
And I always will
(nothing has changed)
I want to
(like a pocket of marbles)
Come back home, can I come back home
(at end of the day)
I hold you
(I pick out my favorite)
Like I never will
(and I give it away)
I want to
(everything's different)
Come back home, can I come back home
(nothing has changed)

Because you lack a vision
You've been
Blinded by love

Gimmie Some Company Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
I love you, I love you, I love you...

Give it a little bit
Give it some light
Give it a little bit of your time

Give it a little bit
Give it some thought/(fire)
Give it a little bit of your life
Gimmie some company
Let me know what you're thinking of

We can walk by the sea
I can hold your hand in mine

Gimmie a little kiss
Gimmie a smile
Gimmie a moment before you decide

Give it a little bit
Give it some light/life
Give it a little bit of your time, your time, your time

Gimmie some company
Let me know what you're thinking of

We can talk easily
I can hold your hand in mine

I Will Carry You Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
You/They say love is a lonely word
When it goes unheard
And if those thoughts they aren't spoken for
And the bags that she packed
Are there by the door

I will carry them
For you
I will carry them
For you
I will carry them
For you
My love

You say I could be free
But I don't think you see me
With the way/weight I absorb
You put on me and so much more

I will carry it
For you
I will carry it
For you
I will carry it
For you
My love

You/They say love is a lonely word
When it goes unheard
Those thoughts they aren't spoken for
And the bags that she packed
Are there by the door

I will carry them
For you
I will carry them
For you
I will carry them
For you
My love

Yer The Reason Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
Yer the reason
I don't wanna go home
Yer the reason
I just wanna stay
Yer the reason
I don't wanna go home
Won't you do something to get in my way

I take a listen inside myself
Just to find an old romance
I saw the walls starting to fade
And watched the sun turn into a blaze/flame/grave [?]
And I tell them what you're doing
And I tell them what you say
And I tell them how you live here
When you move me into the grey/grave

Yer the reason
I don't wanna go home
Yer the reason
I just wanna stay
Yer the reason
I don't wanna go home
Won't you do something to get in my way

((you k)now like solo here
and keep this rollin'
then we're going to
sing a verse
then we're going to do a chorus
it's going to be a single verse
here it comes, right)

Could I tell you if I care
Could I tell you anything
Could I tell you to come home
And would you come home with me

Yer the reason
I don't wanna go home
Yer the reason
I just wanna stay
Yer the reason
I don't wanna go home
Won't you do something to get in my way
Won't you do something to get in my way
Won't you do something to get in my way
Won't you do something to get in my way
Won't you do something to get in my way
Won't you do something to get in my way

Star Song Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Let's Just Be
You got a lot of nerve, dear
To treat people that way
You need to find a lover
Who could hear what you could not say

Need a little time away, dear
Need a little time away
Need a little time away, dear
Need a little time away

You set the world on fire
But you never got away
You want to take it higher
But you ain't got a place to stay

Need a little time away, dear
Need a little time away
Need a little time away, dear
Need a little time away

You need to find a dream
That could give what you could not pay
Cuz you got the ears of the world now
But you ain't got a thing to say

Need a little time away, dear
Need a little time away
Need a little time away, dear
Need a little time away

Temporary People Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
Hanging out with the temporary people
Till I find my way
Back to you
And it's so easy to be swallowed by this evil
Cause it's all I know
How to do

But you do not care about yourself
Or anyone else
Anyone else
I can't stop blaming myself
And nobody else
Nobody else

There must be twenty five different people
Living inside me
All the time
And some of them are always reaching for the needle
Just to try and calm
This vicious mind

But you do not care about yourself
Or anyone else
Anyone else
And I can't stop blaming myself
And nobody else
Nobody else

We're sad you wanna go
(I know you're still alive)
Wanna go
Away
We're sad you wanna go
(I know you're still alive)
Wanna go
Away

We're sad you wanna go
(I know you're still alive)
Wanna go
Away
We're sad you wanna go
(I know you're still alive)
Wanna go
Away

Faith Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
Faith
Comes in little waves
I don't need
To give myself away
I said faith
When it comes you have to pay
It's the pain
Which makes you believe

You could take everything away from me
You could take everything away from me

Here I stand
Naked and alone
Covered up
By only flesh and bone
I can feel
All your little stones
Beating me
Back into my hole

You could take everything away from me
You could take everything away from me
You could take everything away from me
(first your love and your sympathy)
You could take everything away from me
(then your pain and your company)

When I came
There was nothing I could lose
So why should I pretend
That there's something I could choose
When I go
It'll be like no one was here
Nothing to love
And nothing left to fear

You could take everything away from me
(first your love and your sympathy)
You could take everything away from me
(then your pain and your company)
You could take everything away from me
(first your love and your sympathy)
You could take everything away from me
(then your pain and your company)

You could take, you could take...
Still won't have it, still won't have it all...

Still won't have my soul

Say Goodbye Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
If you're gonna leave, you should say goodbye
You should say goodbye
You should say goodbye

I know it's getting harder every time you cry
But you should say goodbye
You should say goodbye

You left on a cold afternoon
Leaving winter in the month of June
You're here for a while, but now you're gone too soon
Like a hidden flower that forgot to bloom

If you're gonna leave, you should say goodbye
You should say goodbye
You should say goodbye

Can't help but be a liar, saying we'll never die
But you should say goodbye
you should say goodbye

You burnt the sun and broke the moon
I can still see you lying in an empty room
The letter you left me was laced with your perfume
Like a butterfly trying to fly back into her cocoon

If you're gonna leave, you should say goodbye
You should say goodbye
You should say goodbye

Can't help but be a liar, saying we'll never die
You should say goodbye
you should say goodbye

If you're gonna leave, you should say goodbye
You should say goodbye
You should say goodbye

If you're gonna leave, you should say goodbye
You should say goodbye
You should say goodbye

Dead Savior Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
We are born alone and weak
Back to black old and meek
Our time here is so short
Right to life or abort
I don't know or who could say
When all that comes will go away

Some are victims, some are slaves
Some are sunshine, some are graves
Some are lost, some are found
Some are tight and some unbound
Could you ever come back through
Without becoming back and blue

Your words are hollow, your voice is noise
You practice lines for all the boys
You play with people just like games
You're good with faces but you're bad with names
Nothing's true if nothing's not
You're never colder than when you're hot

Well
There really ain't no more surprises
Like a dead savior
One that never rises

You got two faces, one is death
You taught yourself to steal their breath
The other face lights the room
Like the mask of love and doom
Who are you? Or who could say?
But very few can ever get away

The scared were never born that way
But slowly made from day to day
From night to night, from year to year
They swallowed almost every tear
The flesh will kill the spirits hold
And most will do what they've been told

Well
There really ain't no more surprises
Like a dead savior
One that never rises

You hang with priests, you hang with thugs
On mountain tops and under rugs
You change your name every day
No one knows who you are that way
You read the signs with empty eyes
And give your love to alibis

Get me back, get me in
With you it's either the saving or the sin
I've been bought but you've been sold
Never hotter than when you're cold
Well now I want to disappear
And get myself away from here

Well
There really ain't no more surprises
Like a dead savior
One that never rises

Look Into The Sky Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
People are hypnotized
Lost in the city of the damned
Dreaming rivers of deceit and lies
As the shake one another's hand

People fill you with poison tongues
Slithering snakes in the world of sorry sons
Loose lips sink ships but you know you're not the only one
On the bottom of the ocean is the story of what we've become

So don't believe them

Look into the sky
Look into the sky
Look into the sky
And ask for him

People fill you with their lies
Try to notify your next of kin
See the lost children in their eyes
Before you decide if you want to be like them

So don't believe them

Look into the sky
Look into the sky
Look into the sky
And ask for him

Look into the sky
Look into the sky
Look into the sky
And ask for him

He's your real friend

People will fill you with their noise
To try to make you feel as bad as them
Bribe you with silk and expensive toys
On the rooftops of hate and sin

So don't believe them

Look into the sky
Look into the sky
Look into the sky
And ask for him

Look into the sky
Look into the sky
Look into the sky
And ask for him

He's your real friend

Sunrise Dolls Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
Memories of a world torn up
You never had it so you lose yourself
On the way to the dream you cut
Out of the mind of the one you held
I never thought that you weren't tough
But you never could take anybody's help
So memories of a world torn up, it's torn up
You never had it so you lose yourself

And I
Walking through the city to survive
And I
Walking through the city to survive
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

Memories of a world torn up
Across the bottom of a raging sea
Your empty promise in my empty cup
Keep the distance between you and me
I never thought that you weren't tough
But you never could take anybody's help
So memories of a world torn up, it's torn up
You never had it so you lose yourself

And I
Walking through the city to survive
And I
Walking through the city to survive
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

Sunrise dolls
Sunrise dolls

And I
Walking through the city to survive
And I
Walking through the city to survive
I'm alive, I'm alive

And I
Walking through the city to survive
And I
Walking through the city to survive
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

Sunrise dolls
Sunrise dolls
Sunrise dolls

A Dream Is Longer Than The Night Lyrics

Album : Temporary People
Kiss me in this long goodbye
Hear the new born angels cry
Watch the greed of night just die
A heart is wider than the sky
You question me I ask you why
You drop me off heavy and high
And as I fall a dream to fly
Fills my head a wish to lie
For sleep to come we all rely
A heart is wider than the sky
Heavy too we try and try

A dream is longer than the night
You get it wrong til it is right
It breaks you open and still you fight
A dream is longer than the night
A dream is longer than the night
In its darkness the only light
Out of blackness bursting white
A dream is longer than the night

Our love is stronger than this war
You want so little

Heart's A Soldier Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
You can't get to Brooklyn riding on the uptown train
You're gonna be a crook until you stop dealing in cocaine
Still you provide for your family any way that you still can
And you remember when they told you you would always be the man

The way we prey
On each other, on each other
Go on, show a little faith in me
Go on, show a little faith in me

You know the times are tougher, tougher than they've ever been before
Because the streets are rougher, rougher than the bedroom door
You try to change the weather even though you know it's a mistake
Because the heart's a soldier, even though you know it's gonna break

The way we prey
On each other, on each other
Go on, show a little faith in me
Go on, show a little faith in me

It's a real tough life when you're searching for ecstasy
Go on, show a little faith in me

Sometimes the path to freedom is the one that no one else believes
Sometimes to rise above them you have to get down on you knees

Try to pray
For each other, for each other
Go on, show a little faith in me
Go on, show a little faith in me

It's a real tough life when you're searching for ecstasy
So go on, show a little faith in me

Turn You On Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
She opens every door
Never calls you by your name
And when you say it's time to go
She looks at you like you're insane

But when she hears you play
She tries to sing along
She gets up and dances on the chair
And makes you laugh
When she sings

You say
I don't turn you on
Until it's time for me to go

She only cries at night
When the children are gone
She gets up to wipe away her eyes
In the blue light of the dawn

Laying on your chest
She's like a tiny cat
Brought up and broken on the street
You know she's the only one
That even knows where you're at

You say
I don't turn you on
Until it's time for me to go

She says crawl over here
I got something else to say
Pouring whisky in your coffee cup
She says I swore you liked it that way

She tells you how to stay alive
Acting like she's cleaning up your place
You could see every single star in the sky
Written on the expression of her lonely face

You say
I don't turn you on
Until it's time for me to go

You say
I don't turn you on
Until it's time for me to go

Winter Blades Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
Shine on someone
Shine on your grave
Shine on someone
Shining on a winter blade

Find a woman you can trust
One that you can touch
Quit shining lights
Into winter blades
Quit shining lights at the sun
And trying to run

Find a gamble with a hunch
Some kind of free lunch
Quit shining lights
Into winter blades
Quit shining lights at the sun
And trying to run

Love keeps tumbling down onto us
Love keeps tumbling down onto us

Learn to walk without a crutch
When you're broke, you got too much [?]
Quit shining lights into winter blades
Quit shining lights at the sun
And trying to run

Love keeps tumbling down onto us
Love keeps tumbling down onto us

Shine on someone
Shine on your grave
Shine on someone
Shining on a winter blade

Shine on someone
Shine on your grave
Shine on someone
Shining on a winter blade

Love keeps tumbling down onto us
Love keeps tumbling down onto us
Love keeps tumbling down onto us
Love keeps tumbling down onto us

Love keeps tumbling down onto us

Drive Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
Did we go too far
To come back here again
Don't know who you are
But I know where you've been
In the wild wind
That comes with the setting sun
When you lose your skin
Where all the shadows run

Where we go
Only you can drive
People we know
Almost all have died

Whatever you could see
Wherever you could hide
Don't know who you'll be
But I'm going to enjoy the ride
Of your punishment
And its ongoing attempt
To show your nakedness
In order to pay your rent

Where we go
Only you can drive
People we know
Almost all have died

Where we go
Only you can drive
People we know
Almost all have died

Try to follow fate
Like a fly on the empty sand
When you're running late
With your skirt hacked around his hand
And now the eagle's gone
As the long cries of hatred bloom
When the winter come
Into the loneliest room

Where we go
Only you can drive
People we know
Almost all have died

Where we go
Only you can drive
People we know
Almost all have died

Good Friend Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : Temporary People
In a hungry time
In the middle world
Pearls before swine
In the dark a girl

Where are you this time
I consider you to be
A good friend of mine

In a haunted life
Will you take my call
I can't win this fight
Unless you take a fall

Where you are this time
I consider you to be
A good friend of mine

I consider you to be
A good friend of mine

I consider you to be
A good friend of mine

I consider you to be
A good friend of mine

Out On A Limb Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
Sometime
No matter when
I wanna see you
See you again
I wanna hold you
Just like the wind
At night

Blowing
Across the land
When you're searching for a friend
As I'm hanging out on a limb
In plain sight

Time won't run away from me
Like you always do
Say you will tonight
And they can't see what we've been through
Faded memories
Blame us too but that's alright

Walking
Across the floor
Hiding behind the door
Your shadow just disappears without light

Baby you're still a slave
I wanna give you what you gave
But there's nothing in your grave tonight

Time won't run away from me
Like you always do
Say you will tonight
And they can't see what we've been through
Faded memories
Hey are you still alright

Time won't run away from me
Like you always do
Stay with me tonight

Sometime
No matter when
I wanna see you
See you again
I wanna hold you
Just like the wind
At night

Blowing
Across the land
When you're searching for a friend
As I'm hanging out on a limb
In plain sight

Horses Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
I don't wanna hold you hostage
I wanna set you free
If I could I'd pay your ransom
And give your eyes to see
You know my love, it will follow
If you only follow me
Your eyes will open up so easily

I don't wanna make you suffer
Or fill you up with shame
What I want is to protect you
Give you shelter from the rain
If you take my hand and maybe
Even take my name
We won't have anyone else left to blame

See how the horses run
Round the track
Until the winner come
Wait for the sound of his gun
And then the horses run

I guess I was only dreaming
I'm here all on my own
I remember how you left me
Homeless in my home
But you said I had it coming
'Cause I've always done you wrong
But I was finding out where I belong

See how the horses run
Round the track
Until the winner come
Wait for the sound of his gun
And then the horses run

See how the horses run
Round the track
Until the winner come
Wait for the sound of his gun
And then the horses run

Almost Blue Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
Playing with your toy soldiers
You don't know what they're for
So you just make lots of noises
Decide who wins the war

Now you're playing with matches
Even though you've be warned
That something evil could happen
You don't care 'cause you're bored

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

In the middle of summer
It's only you and your friends
Each of you trying to go under
But hoping it never ends

You finally make it to winter
And all rejoice in the snow
Crawling over each other
There's nowhere else you can go

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

And you're never going back to there
No you're never going back again
Until you're blue

And you're never going back to there
No you're never going back again
Until you're blue

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

Someone To Love Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
In the time of my dying
I was making promises I couldn't keep
Lying to you, you and me

Held by my addiction
Everything I thought I needed
I couldn't keep
If I was to get myself free

You gotta let somebody
Into your heart
You gotta let somebody
Feeling your heart

Someone to love
Someone to love
Someone to love

I came to live in your shelter
'Cause there's never a day when I'm not afraid
Looking for an answer
Mentally I was no more than a slave
Will you help me surrender
You said I have to become a dancer
And started shooting at my feet

You gotta let somebody
Into your heart
You gotta let somebody
Feeling your heart

Someone to love
Someone to love
Someone to love

I did believe in your answer
But you said I've still got a long way to go
'Cause the day won't remember
What the years dying for you to know
Who you are
Once you find out you're probably already gone too far
To ever find your way back home

You gotta let somebody
Into your heart
You gotta let somebody
Feeling your heart

Someone to love
Someone to love
Someone to love...

Watch Our Shadows Run Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
You betrayed me
You were the only one
I let inside

If anyone could save me
You were the only one
To survive

All my deceit
In the darkness of a dead end street

Here comes the sun
Watch our shadows run
It's a war
No one ever won

And I betrayed you
I was the only one
You let inside

If anyone could save you
I was the only one
To survive

All my deceit
On the corner of a crowded street

Here comes the sun
Watch our shadows run
It's a war
No one ever won

Here comes the sun
Watch our shadows run
It's a war
No one ever won

This Is Still My World Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
Voices whisper hieroglyphics
In the alleys of the sun
As borderline schizophrenics
Haunt my blue dawn
With my chute on

Leave a trail of your genius
And god's will be done
See if you can see through this
I'm not the only one
I'm not his only son

Never mind your details
I'll just shout out the sun
And if you come chasing darkness
Maybe I'll run

I won't run away
This is still my world
I won't run away
This is still my world
I won't run away
Anymore
Anymore

Telephone ringing widows
In the silence puppet strung
I could cry for you forever
But I'm too young

And besides you make me nervous
'Cause I held you so strong
Maybe I've been wrong here
All along

I won't run away
This is still my world
I won't run away
This is still my world
I won't run away
Anymore, anymore
Anymore, anymore

Over The Sun Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
When I lie to you
Life tears us apart
I hope you know
I loved you
As much as you let me through

And when I yell at you
You're already gone
I hope you know
I loved you
As much as the night is long

The sun will fade away
The sun will fade away
I'll run to you every day
Over the sun, over the sun

When I cheat on you
You're still all I see
I hope you know
I loved you
As much as I need to be free

The sun will fade away
The sun will fade away
I'll run to you every day
Over the sun
On my way to your light
Over the sun
On my way to your light
Over the sun
On my way to your light...

Face In The Crowd Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
Mostly you get what you want
That's the way it is
Until you put on a front
Which goes something like this

You want everyone to look at you
Until no one looks away
Everyone to look at you
Now they want you to stay

But you turn back now
Just another face in the crowd
Yeah you turn back now
Just another face in the crowd

Mostly they think you're free
And you love yourself
Until you no longer see
You're just like everyone else

You want everyone to look at you
Until no one looks away
Everyone to look at you
Now they want you to stay

But you turn back now
Just another face in the crowd
Yeah you turn back now
Just another face in the crowd

And just like before
You still want love
Take your foot out of every door
And rise above

There's no where to get away
In an open space
And no price left you could pay
To avoid your own face

And you want everyone to look at you
Until no one looks away
Everyone to look at you
Now they want you to stay

But you turn back now
Just another face in the crowd
Yeah you turn back now
Just another face in the crowd...

Midwest Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
There's nothing to do in the midwest but dream
Like spiders on the walls of abandoned factories
Setting fire to the trash, dance beneath the fog
When the cops come we run like hell
Stealing from our souls born cheap out here
A dream that can't compete up against the fear
Of never getting away
And there's nothing to do in the midwest but dream

There's nothing to do in the midwest but dream
Into the earth and out of the past
We plug in our guitars and begin to feed off the spirits in the air
Flying in our minds, the sound we try to hear
Is so many years from ever being defined
But there's nothing to do in the midwest but dream
But dream

Gypsy Faded Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
I am ready and I'm letting go now
That is what I am doing
That's what this turmoil has been all about
That and the rumors of who you been screwing
I'm not burying my head in the sand
I say this with peace love and understanding
I'm glad you're in some kinda peaceful place now
But darling you were definitely the last one of us standing

When you
Gypsy faded on us
I needed to say goodbye
But you
Gypsy faded on us

I guess there's always a chance of us coming back together
But that seems unlikely in this hand of weather
I just never saw it coming so forgive me the shock
Of becoming a stranger walking down my own block
I'm getting over it though you are fading from my view
And soon I hope you will be gone as I have been gone for you
I do however want to say that I wish you the best
Past the anger of betrayal and the need to second guess

When you
Gypsy faded on us
I needed to say goodbye
But you
Gypsy faded on us

I don't feel you anymore
We were holding phantom hands
I don't feel you anymore
We were holding phantom hands

I don't want stir this all back up
But leavin' in Vegas proved extra painful for me
It's easier to deal with things like this when they're clear
Whereas once I was blind, I can finally see

And like that old saying goes
When you let your bird fly
If she comes back to you
She's really yours and free
But this time you didn't come back
So I guess you weren't mine
I still love you of course
But I let go of the need

When you
Gypsy faded on us
I needed to say goodbye
But you
Gypsy faded on us

When you
Gypsy faded on us
I needed to say goodbye
But you
Gypsy faded on us

Call Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
Pick up your phone
I know you're home
I've been your friend
And I need you now

Last time we spoke
It was all good
But with the passing of time
Things get misunderstood

Put down your walls
Put down your walls
And call

Sometimes friends rust
When they forget how to trust
We hurt the most
The ones we truly love

I've been your friend
And I need you now
Just like you needed me then
And I came through somehow

Put down your walls
Put down your walls
And call

Love Never Asks You To Lie Lyrics

Artist : JOSEPH ARTHUR
Album : The Graduation Ceremony
November twelfth and it is a nice night to pretend
That nothing will come at me like you did again
I could see it in your eyes and felt it in your touch
That you were as close to the truth as anything ever was

Heard you cry
Love never asks you to lie
Take off your evil disguise
I could see clear through your eyes

Western Union, Cadillacs, bankers and ice cream
Breaking windows, singing spirituals, ring like memories
At the graduation ceremony, setting our sights free
There is never gonna be another you and me

Heard you cry
Love never asks you to lie
Take off your evil disguise
I could see clear through your eyes

And they say it's gonna shoot you
Shoot you down
When you walk around the corner
Of this ghost town
You know, they say it's gonna shoot you
Shoot you down

Heard you cry
Love never asks you to lie
Take off your evil disguise
I could see clear through your eyes

Heard you cry
Love never asks you to lie
Take off your evil disguise
I could see clear through your eyes

Hùg Air A' Bhonaid Mhòir Lyrics

Artist : JULIE FOWLIS
Album : Cuilidh
[Hùg air a’ Bhonaid Mhòir]
Hùg air a’ bhonaid mhòir,
Cuiribh oirre ’s leigibh leatha;
Tuilleadh air a’ bhonaid eile,
Chan eil leth gu leòr oirre.

Bhonaid a bh’ aig Dòmhnall Bàn
Ann an Bothalam na tàmh,
Bha i uiread ris an spàrr,
B’ àird’ i na lòban.

[Celebrate the great bonnet]
Celebrate the great bonnet!
Add to it, leave it alone.
More on the other bonnet.
There’s not half enough on it.

Donald Ban’s bonnet
is to be found in Bothalam.
It was as high as the roof joist,
higher than the corn-stack frame.

[Da Thàbh air an Fharaidh]
Da thàbh air an fharaidh,
Tha rud shìos anns a’ charaidh;
Da thàbh air an fharaidh,
Tha rud aig an fhaoileig.

Ged tha mi gun rud agam,
Tha rud shios anns a’ charaidh;
Ged tha mi gun rud agam,
Tha rud aig an fhaoileig.

[Two Spoon Nets in the Loft]
Two spoon nets in the loft,
There’s something in the fish-trap;
Two spoon-nets in the loft,
The seagull has a catch.

Although I’m empty-handed,
There’s something in the fish trap;
Although I’m empty handed,
The seagull has a catch.

Mo Ghruagach Dhonn Lyrics

Artist : JULIE FOWLIS
Album : Cuilidh
[Mo Ghruagach Dhonn]
Hi ho ro, mo ghruagach dhonn,
’S ann ort fhèin a dh’fhàs an loinn:
Dh’fhàg siud acaid na mo chom,
An gaol cho trom ’s a ghabh mi ort.

Fhuair mi do litir Dimàirt,
Dh’innseadh dhòmhsa mar a bha:
Gu robh thu a’ tighinn gun dàil
A-mach air bàta Ghlaschu.

Nuair a leugh mi mar a bha,
Ghabh mi sìos am Brumalà:
Chunnaic mi a’ tighinn am bàt’
’S an t‑àilleagan, an ainnir, innt’.

Nuair a shìn mi mach mo làmh,
Thionndaidh thu le fiamh a’ ghàir’
’S labhair thu facal no dhà
Dh’fhàg iomadh tràth gun chadal mi.

’S ann ort fhèin tha ghruag a’ fàs ‑
Cha dubh ’s cha ruadh is cha bhàn,
Ach mar an t-òr as àille snuadh,
Gu buidhe, dualach, camalagach.

Dhèanainn sgrìobhadh dhut le peannt,
Dhèanainn treabhadh dhut le crann,
Dhèanainn sgiobair dhut air luing,
Air nighean donn nam meall-shùilean.

Meòir is grinn thu air an t-snàth
No cur peannt air pàipear bàn,
Ach ma chaidh thu null thar sàil
Dh’Astràilia, mo bheannachd leat.

Cha bhi mi tuilleadh fo leòn,
Glacaidh mi tè ùr air spòig ‑
Solamh bu ghlice bha beò,
Bha aige mòran leannanan

[My Brown-haired Lass]
Hi ho ro, my brown-haired lass,
whose beauty becomes more beguiling.
The deep love I have for you
has left me sorely wounded.

Your letter arrived on Tuesday
Telling of what was to be.
It told that your ship would arrive
in Glasgow without delay.

When I read this,
I immediately headed for the Broomielaw.
I saw the ship carrying the jewel,
the maiden, approach.

When I held out my hand
you turned with a slight smile and
uttered a couple of words
which left me sleepless many nights

You have the lovliest hair,
neither black, nor red nor fair,
but the colour of the most beautiful gold,
yellow, braided and curled.

I would write for you with a pen.
I would cultivate for you with a plough.
I would captain a ship for you,
brown haired lass of the deceiving eyes.

You are skilled at working wool
and at writing on blank paper.
But if you have gone overseas, to Australia,
goodbye to you.

I will no longer be in despair.
I’ll grab a new one by the hand.
Solomon, the wisest man who lived,
had many sweethearts.

[An t‑Aparan Goirid ’s an t‑Aparan Ùr: Òran do Sheasaidh Bhaile Raghnaill]
An t-aparan goirid ’s an t-aparan ùr,
An t-aparan goirid nach ruig ach a’ ghlùin,
’S nuair bha mi òg ’s mi furast’ rim lùb’,
’S e dh’fhàg mi fo leòn ach an t-aparan ùr.

Bha cliù ort, a Sheasaidh, ’s tu ’n ainnir bha suairc,
A chumadh rid ghealladh ’s a leanadh rid luaidh;
’S ann unnad bha ’n spiorad, ’s tu ’chinneadh nam buadh
Nach gabhadh an giorag ’s nach tilleadh ron chuan.

’S ann ort a bha biùthas san dùthaich a bh’ ann:
Cha ghabhadh tu Cooper, cha b’ bhuidh’ leat a chainnt;
’S ann bha thu nad bhiùtaidh, ’s tu ’m flùr gun mheang,
’S nam faighinn mo dhùrachd, bhiodh diùc leat air làimh.

’S nuair fhuair an Eliza Miss Jessie air bòrd,
’S ann oirre bha ’n sgoinn ’s iad a’ hoidhsteadh nan seòl;
Bha muir air gach taobh dhith a’ sgaoileadh mu bòrd
’S bha h‑aigne cho aotrom ri faoileag air lòn.

Bha seorsa duine aca mach air a’ watch
A’ geàrd a’ bhaile ’s na thigeadh mun cuairt,
Ach cheangaileadh a chasan ’s a làmhan gu cruaidh,
’S mun tàinig a’ mhadainn, chaidh a ragadh le fuachd.

Dh’fhàg thu do mhàthair is d’ athair fo leòn
Nach d’ rinn iad dhut banais le aighear ’s le ceòl,
Ach tillidh tu fhathast do dh’Uibhist an eòrn’,
’S bidh siùcar an glainne ’s todaidh ga òl!

[The Short Apron and the New Apron: Song for Jessie of Balranald]
The short apron and the new apron;
the short apron which only reaches the knee
When I was young and easily led
the new apron was the cause of my hurt.

You were famous, Jessie, as a polite young woman
who would keep your word and be faithful to your beloved.
How spirited you were, a descendant of the truly virtuous clan,
which knew not fear and for whom the sea held no dread.

You became famous in the area.
You wouldn’t entertain Cooper; you cared not for his conversation.
What a beauty you were, a flower without blemish,
and had I my wish, a duke would have you by the hand.

When Miss Jessie boarded the Eliza,
there was a flurry of activity as the sails were hoisted.
The sea was parting for her bow
and her spirit was as light-hearted as a seagull.

They had a kind of man on watch,
guarding the village and all who approached.
But his feet and hands were tightly bound and,
by morning, he had stiffened with the cold.

You left your mother and father depressed
because they were unable to provide for you a wedding with music and merry-making.
But you’ll return some time to Uist of the barley
and there will be sugar in glasses for drinking toddies!

'Ille Dhuinn, 'S Toiigh Leam Thu Lyrics

Artist : JULIE FOWLIS
Album : Cuilidh
[’Ille Dhuinn, ’S Toigh Leam Thu]
’Ille dhuinn, ’s toigh leam thu,
’S toigh leam fhìn thu, laochain;
Mas toigh leat mi, is toigh leam thu ‑
’S gur òg a thug mi gaol dhut.

Dh’fhalbh mi mar a b’ àbhaist dhomh
Air sàillibh coimhead chaorach ‑
’S beag a bha dhem fhor orra,
’S mo leannan air a’ chaolas.

Nuair dhìrich mi suas Criongrabhal,
’S e m’ inntinn nach robh aotrom ‑
Bha ’m bàta mach gu Saighdeanais,
’S i toidhdidh fo cuid aodaich.

’S ann a their mo phàrantan
Gur tàmailt leotha m’ fhaoineas ‑
Gum faighinn fear na b’ fheàrr na thu
Le bàtaichean ’s le birlinn.

Ged gheibhinn fear na b’ fheàrr na thu
Le bàtaichean ’s le birlinn,
Gum b’ fheàrr leam fhìn an gille donn
Is e gun bhonn dhen t‑saoghal.

Ged gheall mi dhut gun leanainn thu
’S gun dealaichinn ri mo dhaoine,
Cha d’ rachainn dha Na Hearadh leat
Air cheannachd air an t‑saoghal.

Ged a bhithinn pòsta riut
Is còir agam air d’ fhaotainn,
Cha b’ fhada bhithinn beò agad
’S an Dòmhnallach às m’ aonais.

[Brown-haired Lad, I’m Fond of You]
Brown-haired lad, I’m fond of you,
I’m really fond of you, boy;
If you’re fond of me, I’m fond of you-
I’ve loved you since I was young.

I set off as usual
to look for the sheep
but scant attention gave I to them,
knowing my beloved was in the strait.

When I climbed Criongrabhal,
my spirits were low –
the ship, with well-trimmed sails,
was out near Saighdeanais.

My parents say that
my foolishness is a source of shame to them –
that I could attract a better man than you,
an owner of ships and galleys.

Though I could have a better man than you,
an owner of ships and galleys,
I would much prefer the brown-haired lad
though he hadn’t a penny in the world.

Though I promised you I’d follow you
and part company from my people,
nothing in the world
could induce me to go to Harris.

I wouldn’t survive long if married to you,
while pining for MacDonald.
