CONFESS

GOLDEN LIGHT

I met you first I heard your voice

On the telephone

And then again a city street

Where you walked alone

And when you came out of the dark

I was waiting there

You said

I could take it now

If you can take me anywhere

Some people say there’s a golden light

You’re the golden light (I will follow)

And if I chase after

Does it mean that it’s true

Some people say there’s a golden light

If I’m the golden light (I will follow)

But If you chase after me doesn’t mean you can see

I will try to recall

But I can’t hear it at all

The things we said that day

Am I memories dog

Am I to follow at all

The stunning things you say like

"It’s been so long, so long since I prayed or fell in love"

Some people say there’s a golden light

You’re the golden light (I will follow)

And if I chase after you

Does it mean that it’s true

Some people say there’s a golden light

If I’m the golden light (I will follow)

But If you chase after me doesn’t mean you can see

Ill follow, Ill follow you… Ill follow

Ill follow, Ill follow you… Ill follow

I will follow

And if you chase after me doesn’t mean you can see

Some people say there’s a golden light

You’re the golden light (I will follow)

And if I chase after you

Does it mean that its true

Golden light you’re the golden light

YOU CALL ME ON

I get the feeling that I’m always awake

And that I’m trying to dream but there is no one to take me there

I vote for you

You get the fear that you’re always asleep

And if you look out and see me me and touch me

I’ll disappear   

 

But I don’t give damn about your dreams

Or a world that is falling at the seams cause

That’s what it’s supposed do    

And don’t give a damn about the scene

If it’s the only way back to you it seems then  

I’ll cry into the night to make you feel me 

You called me on

Now give it up

Now give it up

You alone

You called me on

Now give it up

Now give it up

You alone

 

I get the feeling that I’m always awake

And that I’m trying to dream but there is no one to take me there

And I vote for you

You get the fear that your always asleep

And if you look out and see me me and touch me

I’ll disappear   

But I don’t give damn about your dreams

Or a world that is falling at the seams cause

That’s what it’s supposed do

And don’t give a damn about the scene

If it’s the only way back to you it seems then 

I’ll cry into the night and make you feel me  

You called me on

Now give it up

Now give it up

You alone

FIVE SECONDS

Five seconds

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

She said

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

Keep me in your arms

Till the right time

Drop your head to meet mine

Then look for a sign

I don’t believe in you

You don’t believe in me

So how could you make me cry

Five seconds to your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

(There’s no way to forget it all)

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

She said five seconds in your heart

Straight to the heart

I can’t to your heart

Nothing there to take back

But your faith

You can’t lose anymore

And I’m strange

Look at your face

When it comes it sounds like

And when it comes we kiss

When it comes it sounds like

And when it comes we kiss

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to the heart

I can’t get to your heart

She said

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

(There’s no way to forget at all)

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to the heart I can’t to your heart

(I’m not trying to make you cry)

I don’t believe in you

You don’t believe in me

So how could you make me cry

There’s no way to forget it all

I don’t know why

But I’m not trying to make you cry

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to the heart

I can’t get to your heart

There’s no way to forget at all

I don’t know why

But I’m not trying to make you cry

Five seconds in your heart

Straight to your heart

I can’t get to your heart

THE ONE

I’m in love with the unlovable

You’re all in with a cruel world

There is something that’s missing

But there is something about you

I’m all eyes for the coldest star

You would do the unthinkable for me

I can’t believe sometimes

I let down the one who dares

I can’t believe sometimes

I lost the one who cared     

So I’m putting all my love

To the one who’s always there

And I’m sendin’ down my love to her

Yeah I’m puttin’ all my love on the one

The one who’s always there

And I’m staring down my love

I’m in love with with my memories

You’re alone with my stuttering heart

There is something that’s missing but there is something about you

I’m all eyes for the coldest star

You would do the unthinkable for me

I can’t believe sometimes

I let down the one who dares

I can’t believe sometimes

I lost the one who cared    

So I’m putting all my love on the one

The one who’s always there

And I’m sendin’ down my love to her

Yeah I’m puttin’ all my love on the one

The one always there

And I’m sending all my love to the one who’s always there

RUN MY HEART

You don’t know my heart

You don’t know my heart

So don’t you dare

You don’t run my heart

You don’t run my heart

Don’t pretend you can

I been workin’ on makin’ it start

Workin’ on makin’ it start again

I’m not in love

I’m not in love

I been workin’ on makin’ it start

Workin’ on makin’ it start but i cant

I’m not in love

Can’t you see I’m not in love

You wanna meet me out in the dark

You wanna meet in misery park

By the moon so low and lovely

With the gloom that’s above me

You couldn’t know what makes me dream

I couldn’t word the things I’ve seen

Like the shake of trembling things

Like the ache of unused wings

I been workin’ on makin’ it start

Working on makin’ it start again but

I’m not in love

I’m not in love

This isn’t love

This isn’t love 

It’s that

I’m just a boy

And you’re just a girl

You wanna be the one to believe it

Then be the one to believe it

I’m just a boy and you’re just a girl

You don’t know my heart

You don’t know my heart

So don’t you dare

You don’t run my heart

You don’t run my heart

Don’t pretend you can

I been workin’ on makin’ it start

Workin’ on makin’ it start again but

(I BUILT THESE HANDS COLD ENOUGH FOR ME, COLD ENOUGH FOR ME, ITS NOT SO HARD TO SEE THAT YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU BELIEVE)

This isn’t love

This isn’t love 

It’s that

I’m just a boy

And you’re just a girl

You wanna be the one to believe it

Then be the one to believe it

I’m just a boy and you’re just a girl

BEG FOR THE NIGHT

Don’t beg for the night 

Feel a bit more

Don’t cry in the dark just open the door

I want all the words spun from your lips

I know its absurd to shake when we kiss

Here he comes

Here he comes

Here comes your love

He longs to be near you

Here comes the summer 

I have to be with you

When this love starts (you)

Wont hurt anymore

Will you need me again

You’ve been all on your own

When this love starts 

Won’t hurt anymore

If you need me again

Let me know

I’m in love with your light

Just show a bit more

I’ll wait for the night 

If you open the door

I want every word

I’m hung on your lips

I know it’s absurd 

To cherish every kiss

When this love starts (you)

Wont hurt anymore

Will you need me again

You’ve been all on your own

When this love starts 

Won’t hurt anymore

If you need me again

Let me know

When this love starts (you)

Won’t hurt anymore

Will you need me again

You’ve been all on your own

When this love starts 

Won’t hurt anymore

If you need me again

Let me know

PATIENT

You are adored but you say you’re alone like I’m nothing at all

That’s how you punish me

By always letting me fall

I built a sanctuary for your troubles and doubts and there I pray for you

And now you look at me

Like I wasn’t true

And maybe you don’t want no one to find out, that I

been kissing you

Maybe you don’t want no one to find out, that I

Was the taking love from you

Patient, I’m waiting

For you to give up everything

And say just what you mean

I am patiently, waiting

For you to give up everything

And say just what you mean

I want to be adorned by your lips in your hands

Can’t seem to tell you this

When you analyze

Every single kiss

You tell me you’re just the same

Boys will be boys, this was a game

And you don’t want no one to find out, that I

Was the one playing games with you

Instrumental Break

Patient, I’m waiting

For you to give up everything

And say just what you mean

I am patiently, waiting

For you to say just what you mean

And give up everything

Instrumental Bridge

Patient, I’m waiting

For you to give up everything

And say just what you mean

I am patiently, waiting

For you to say just what you mean

And give up everything

(Was the one taking love from you)

I am patient, I’m waiting

For you to give up everything

And say just what you mean

(Was the one taking love from you)

I am patiently, waiting

For you to say just what you mean

And give up everything

(Was the one taking love from you)

I am patient, I’m waiting

For you to give up everything

And say just what you mean

(Was the one taking love from you)

I am patiently, I’m waiting

For you to say just what you mean

And give up everything

WHEN THE MOVIE’S OVER

When the movies over

You and I peel away

Even in these summer days

You hang on to the things I say

But you couldn’t see what’s in my head

You come around I go down

Like a nightmare, Like a nightmare

You come around I go down I’m

I’m not the first one, night the last one

To do it all again

To do it all again

Do it all again

Do it all again

And ill cry

Ill cry

When the movies over

Ill cry

Ill cry

Why am I all your favorite things

In the catalogue of your memory

You hang on like the leaves themselves

Who were born to cling

You come around, I go down

This time you’re wasting, this I’m time wasting

You come around, I go down

Like a nightmare, Like a nightmare

To do it all again

To do it all again

Do it all again

Do it all again

And ill cry

I’ll cry

When the movies over

I’ll cry

I’ll cry

To do it all again

To do it all again

Do it all again

Do it all again

And ill cry

I’ll cry

When the movies over

I’ll cry

When the movies over

I’ll cry

I DONT CARE

Let me know your innocent then tell me all the things you’ve done

Then talk about the parties and the boys that you got undone

I don’t care

I don’t care

Long as you can dance me round the room while you lie to me

Why then all the words how you’d never disobey your ma

Then brag about your first time in a bathroom stall

I don’t care

I don’t care

I don’t care

Long as you can dance me round the room while you lie to me

You were sittin’ home on a Friday night

I was ready to dance

You where lookin’ to fight

So you whispered something softly in the telephone

You where lookin’ to get it cause your daddies not home

So I came to you in the night

And I told you the truth and you cried

Before the night is through

I will say three words

I’ll probably mean the first two and regret the third

I don’t care

I don’t care

Long as I can dance you round the room while I lie to you

Long as we can dance around the room while we lie

Long as you can dance me around the room while you lie to me

Long as we can dance around the room while we lie

BE MINE TONIGHT

Tell me again what you believe

I wanna hear about anything

The island is sinking

The water aches

 

Tell me I’m no one

Or bend like thief

But hold like the water

That’s all around me

And in the seconds before

The moment you leave

 

Let me say this

 

Tell me again what you believe

But let one link be broken

Close the door but leave the ending open

 

Be mine tonight

Be mine tonight

Be mine tonight if you can’t go home

You’re mine tonight

You’re mine tonight

You’re mine tonight if you can’t go home

If you can’t go home


FORGET

Tyrant Destroyed

I know you spent some time from the town to the city

Looking for a place to start

And when you were fifteen I know what you said

"I’ll never let another black boy break my heart"

You waited a decade for me to come find you

There’s never been a chance so rare

I was just stumbling out on a prosthetic love

and there had never been someone so real

this was, Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer

as you sat sinking in my hands.

Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer

as you sat sinking in my hands

As if it wasn’t enough just to hear you speak

they had to give you lips like that

like all of your sadness reduced to a color

then painted upon you, how could i forget you.

And who was I to think that on a Saturday night

that you would really bike home alone

And the way that I left you just hanging on Sundays

Any fair skin boy could take you home

this was, Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer

as you sat sinking in my hands.

Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer

as you sat sinking in my hands

When We’re Dancing

I am trying to remember all the things that I’ve know

They all shine, soft and stand alone

Like I picture you waiting at the end of a bridge

But it’s hard for me to render up the things that we did

You playing doctor with the door unlocked

Kissing on your cousin and you both got caught

And this how the cleft was formed inside the silent ground

Those words in your mouth

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Is your cheek still red from where you caught her hand?

Or are you just in love again

The search party’s out yes they’re hunting your name

but all young lovers they look the same

You were driving with your eyes closed 75

With you foot to the floor and your head to the sky

And this is how the cleft was born inside the silent ground

Those words in your mouth

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing      

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Slow

Don’t turn me over just let me know how long will it be before you let me go

You held the line, the bullet sewn

It’s just that sometimes time’s so slow

Sometimes time’s so slow

Sometimes time’s so slow

I don’t wanna believe or be in love

I don’t wanna be, believin’ in love

Don’t put me on just let me in

How many times did you let me win

Give me one more, my ticket’s in

Oh can’t we try again, can we try again?

I don’t wanna believe or be in love

I don’t wanna be, believin’ in love

Shooting Holes

Bite the hand I know she doesn’t care

Leave a trail the hounds will find us anywhere

Call the cops and tell em what we’ve done

Tell em that tonight we stole your father’s guns

With your right hand, you sayin

"I think we’re gonna be so close"

Let’s sing a song, on our way back home

You and me shooting holes in the moon

You and me shooting holes in the moon

Take my hand there’s no one here to see

Push your bones against the earth with me

With your right hand you saying

"I think it’s gonna be so close"

Let’s sing a song on our way back home

You and me shooting holes in the moon

You and me shooting holes in the moon

On our way back home.

 

At My Heels

I’m in the belly of a canyon

I can’t come up with any reason

Why a ghost is following me

Why a ghost is following me

I’ve got some feed for the longing

I’ve got the pillow for the bad dream

The apparition dancing with me

Stepping down all over my feet

There is no key to my gate

But you can still come around

Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down

Sometimes I don’t know what I’m seeing

Who’s keeping track of all that’s breathing?

There’s a world that’s waiting for me

There’s a world that’s waiting for me

I’m in the belly of a canyon

I can’t come up with any reason

Why a ghost is following me

Why a ghost is following me

There is no key to my gate

But you can still come around

Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down

There is no key to my gate

But you can still come around

Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down

There is no key to my gate

But you can still come around

Lean your ladder against my window and ill come down

Yellow Balloon

Follow me until the dawn

Orange trees on mother’s lawn

To the chapel in the valley when the day is done

And we’ll get married when our friends have gone

In the pines we learn to speak

In the leaves forget to breath

If you hear your mama calling get away from me

If you hear your mama calling get away from me

Secret hand shakes, the swimming hole

Keep awake, and we will not go old

Come on everyone come undone

Try to keep your face out of the sun

And if you get lost at the face of the moon

Follow the boy with the yellow balloon

Follow me until the dawn

Orange trees on mother’s lawn

To the chapel in the valley when the day is done

And we’ll get married when our friends have gone

In the pines we learn to speak

In the leaves forget to breath

If you hear your mama calling get away from me

If you hear your mama calling get away from me

Secret hand shakes, the swimming hole

Keep awake, and we will not go old

Come on everyone come undone

Try to keep your face out of the sun

And if you get lost at the face of the moon

Follow the boy with the yellow balloon

Tether Beat

Is your heart not heavy when she says goodbye

Do reach for another when you turn of the light

Do you sigh yourself awake

Is there nothing you can fake?

Do you wear it on your face like it’s all you can take?

Does your heart still beat?

Does your heart still beat?

All my golden looks they’ll beg for you, some day soon

And all my brief love spills around you

My love appears so thin at the end of the day

Is it too much to ask for, to put it away?

Do we pry ourselves to sleep, is there nothing that’s complete

Feel the silver string pulling my hands to your heat

Does your heart still beat?

Does your heart still beat?

All my golden looks they’ll beg for you, some day soon

And all my brief love spills around you

Castles in The Snow

You’re my Favorite daydream

I’m your famous nightmare, everything I see looks like gold

Everything I touch goes cold

Castles in the snow

Here’s all I know

Your checkered room and

Your velvet bow

Your Elvis songs in my ears

That moonlit voice that I hear

Now we are bold as breath

We walk along our golden crest

We hide away for a week

We only look an don’t speak

You’re my Favorite daydream

I’m your famous nightmare, everything I see looks like gold

Everything I touch goes cold

Castles in the snow

For Now

Far gone are summer girls

In beds with thankless boys

And all the lives that need to keep awake another century

Far off are perfect days

For now ill have to wait

In beds with all the ones I hate

To give myself, myself away

I belong to you and that’s not gonna change

I been on to you and nothings been the same

Is there anything as quiet as a night alone with you?

Had it ever been as clear as on the day that you went away

Don’t speak from other lives

Don’t need a hopeful line

Your hand upon my face is fine

Remind me of my place this time

Someone must’ve told the man in the sky

To paint a portrait of you and I

Someone must’ve gone and told him why

(Is there anything as quiet as a night alone with you?

Had it ever been as clear as on the day that you went away)

Is there anything as quiet as a night alone with you?

Had it ever been as clear as on the day that you went away

I Can’t Wait

I can not wait for summer,

I can not wait for June when all the ghost are quiet,

when everything is new

Her voice to me ” he’s always asking for a dance”

She said “I hate his moves”

Her hands under her legs “his hands are always in my pants”

she said I hate his moves”

I scan the room I see the clock your eyes are closed it’s getting dark

Is it over?

I can not wait for summer, I can not wait for June when all the ghost are quiet, when everything is new.

Her face to me I see she’s asking for a dance, you know she loves my moves.

Her hands around my waist, my arms around her back. You know she loves my moves.

The quiet room the evening draw “I never felt so wild at all, is it over”

the boy who sits across from me just turns his head and doesn’t see till it’s over.

Forget

They’ll give us something; they’ll give us so much to forget

Or enough rope to deal with it

With pencil and knife you heard your love again

You wrestled your nightmares, the sweat in your bed sheets

This is all of it; this is everything I’m wanting to forget

When winter sets in, it has a way of crystallizing the bad times

The fevers, the heart aches

This is all of it; this is everyone I’m wanting to forgive

They’ll give us something; they’ll give us so much to forget

Or enough rope to deal with it

With pencil and knife you heard your love again

You wrestled your nightmares, the sweat in your bed sheets

This is all of it; this is everything I’m wanting to forget
