lyrics

Restless

She drinks it black

5 a.m. playing her song

She wants it bad

She's going round

Knocking on every door

Wants to be found

 

She will not stand by

She won't allow herself no

She won't back down oh no

She will never cry

She won't allow herself no

She won't back down oh no

 

She's been restless lately

Flames in her eyes

Fame's in her sight

Drives her crazy

Hypnotized by the spotlights

Betrays her lately

She's terrified

On overdrive   

Everybody knows

 

She stays up late

Making big plans, dreaming bout future crowds, she says

In the mirror

She sees the way that no one else sees her

 

She will not stand by

She won't allow herself no

She won't back down oh no

She will never cry

She won't allow herself no

She won't back down oh no

 

She's been restless lately

Flames in her eyes

Fame's in her sight

Drives her crazy

Hypnotized by the spotlights

Betrays her lately

She's terrified

On overdrive

Everybody knows

 

Searching for the fortune

In the depths of the Gold Coast haze

Temptation leads her astray

Searching for the fortune

She's been doing all she can now

She's been doing all she can now (repeats)

 

She's been restless lately

Flames in her eyes

Fame's in her sight

Drives her crazy

Hypnotized by the spotlights

Betrays her lately

She's terrified

On overdrive        

Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows

 

She's been restless lately

Flames in her eyes

Fame's in her sight

Drives her crazy

Hypnotized by the spotlights

Betrays her lately

She's terrified                 

On overdrive

Everybody knows


what i'm gonna be 

He cuts like cold water

Hasn't seen the sun

Telling me everything that's wrong with

Said I wasn't good enough

He's called for the devil in me 

Thinks I'm blind but I can see

What he's done to me

What he's done to me

He's got some kind of attitude

His words are a needle; they're digging to feel

He speaks carelessly

Leaves a darkness inside of me

He says it's only honesty

But he and I just don't agree

Back away and leave me be

 

Says that I’m not gonna be a super star with

All the glitter, all the glamour, all the charm with

Says that I’m not gonna be a super star with

All the glitter, all the glamour

Wait and see

Boy, what I'm gonna be

 

I used to care what he said

I heard his voice in my head, played by the rules to lose again

Now it's time to break free

He's gonna lose, not me

 

He speaks carelessly

Leaves a darkness inside of me

He says it's only honesty

But he and I just don't agree

Back away and leave me be

 

Says that I’m not gonna be a super star with

All the glitter, all the glamour, all the charm with

Says that I’m not gonna be a super star with

All the glitter, all the glamour

Says that I’m not gonna be a super star with

All the glitter, all the glamour, all the charm with

Says that I’m not gonna be a super star with

All the glitter, all the glamour

Wait and see

Boy, what I'm gonna be


Warm Hands 

Warm hands 

Be mine

When you tickled my back in summertime 

Warm hands 

Be mine

Don't grow cold

When winter cries

 

Fingers intertwined 

Stretching miles wide

Borders only lines

Broke them, broke them

Fingers intertwined 

Stretching miles wide

Borders only lines

Broke them, broke them in time

Time

Time

Broke them

 

Warm hands

Be mine 

Your touch lingering 

My pale skin's tingling

Warm hands

Be mine

Yet don't burn me

Pain gets me every time

 

Fingers intertwined 

Stretching miles wide

Borders only lines

Broke them, broke them

Fingers intertwined 

Stretching miles wide

Borders only lines

Broke them, broke them in time

Time

Time

Time 

Time 


Traveling Lovers 

Dull winter cracks her bones

In dim light she dries

Words linger on shifting stones

He’s the anchor, keeps her steady in her loveless world

She’s an ageless wonder through romantized eyes

Though the clock keeps ticking, their love never subsides

In sun and moon, they sing like loons

Carry a simple tune for you and I

 

Through storms and rages

We speak the truth not false statements

We’re a sail on a ship at sea

Traveling lovers are each other’s homes

Traveling lovers are each other’s homes

 

Each other’s homes

Each other’s homes

Each other’s homes

Each other’s homes

 

Rays of sun etch his tan skin

Absorbs heat yet so cold

His body misplaced, continues to ache

She’s the lines keep him steady in his loveless world

Inked pages condense in fine lines

Day and day and night and night

In clouds and stars, they breathe through the heart

Carry a simple tune for you and I

 

Through storms and rages

We speak the truth not false statements

We’re a sail on a ship at sea

Traveling lovers are each other’s homes

Traveling lovers are each other’s homes

 

Each other’s homes

Each other’s homes

Each other’s homes

Each other’s homes 


Babydoll

Babydoll, babydoll

Haven’t called, haven’t called in a while

Babydoll, babydoll

When did your smile, your smile fade away?

 

Maybe you got lost in it baby

Maybe you forgot it baby

Just know, I’m around

Maybe you thought too much of it baby

Maybe was ashamed of it baby

Just know, it’s okay

 

‘Cause remember the day

We painted that door red ‘cause when we walk in, it’s gonna be love all night

We painted that door red ‘cause when we walk in, it’s gonna be love all night

 

The way you liked it

When your curves weren’t hiding, under that yellow dress on Sunday morning you wore to the park

I know, you’re not afraid of the dark

 

Oh babydoll, babydoll

When I answered the call, answered the call

Oh babydoll, babydoll

Brought back my smile, brought back my smile

 

Think I got lost in it baby

Think I forgot it baby

I know, you’re around

Maybe thought too much of it baby

Maybe was ashamed of it baby

I know, we’re okay

 

‘Cause remember the day

We painted that door red ‘cause when we walk in, it’s gonna be love all night

We painted that door red ‘cause when we walk in, it’s gonna be love all night

 

The way you liked it

When your curves weren’t hiding, under that yellow dress on Sunday morning you wore to the park

I know, you’re not afraid of the dark


Young Love in an old city

You are my garden

Cologne rubbed into my clothes

Love roams on cobblestones

Park’s wide with faces we don’t know

Talking in a romance language, “je t’aime trop”

Castles and churches ringing bells, our time is gold

 

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

 

Under the linen sheets, the sun waking us at nine

Under the linen sheets, the sun waking up our eyes

In the water of a temptress and brine

You melt bitterness away, like sugar and time

 

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

 

Oh one day, I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope we can flee

As I try to predict, try to predict, how we’ll be

Oh one day, I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope we can flee

As I try to predict, try to predict, how we’ll be

Yet is this old city all we need to be?

 

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city

Young love in an old city


fool's land

Lately I’ve been thinking to write this song

This one goes to you if you feel alone

‘Cause I’m the girl who people see

As only a shadow beneath their feet

Here each day

Same faces, same games

 

I’m in a fool’s land

Where pretty little girls

Are talking like pretty girls

Walking like pretty girls

They’re wearing white

And I’m wearing red

Mixed up the colors

But don’t give a damn

I’m in a fool’s land

Playing the witness

Watching these silly games

I’m trying to lie to myself

Saying it will be okay

 

I’m in a fool’s land

I’m in a fool’s land

I’m in a fool’s land

I’m in a fool’s land

 

People keep telling me this will all end

But I’m in a place where ya gotta fit in

I see the truth in all your lies

‘Cause I’m not one of those pretty little girls

Who walks side by side

 

I’m in a fool’s land

Where pretty little girls

Are talking like pretty girls

Walking like pretty girls

They’re wearing white

And I’m wearing red

Mixed up the colors

But don’t give a damn

I’m in a fool’s land

Playing the witness

Watching these silly games

I’m trying to lie to myself

Saying it will be okay

 

Na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na

Hey, hey

Hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

 

I’m in a fool’s land

Where pretty little girls

Are talking like pretty girls

Walking like pretty girls

They’re wearing white

And I’m wearing red

Mixed up the colors

But don’t give a damn

                       

I’m in a fool’s land

Where pretty little girls

Are talking like pretty girls

Walking like pretty girls

They’re wearing white

And I’m wearing red

Mixed up the colors

But don’t give a damn

I’m in a fool’s land

Playing the witness

Watching these silly games

I’m trying to lie to myself

Saying it will be okay

 

I’m in a fool’s land

I’m in a fool’s land

I’m in a fool’s land

I’m in a fool’s land

 

Fool’s land

Fool’s land

Fool’s land 


1, 2, 3, 4

I see the world

Roamed through every destination

I’ve seen the world

Marked the hidden spots in my imagination

And I’m looking from one side of this foggy windowpane

I’ve seen the world

Why don’t you come today

 

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up baby

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up now

 

I see the world

Where the moon never wanes away

I’ve seen the world

Where flying ain’t no mystery

And I’m trying to make sense of this

No I’m trying, trying to make sense of this

 

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up baby

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up

 

But when I’ve seen the world

I’m just laying in this hollow room

When I’ve seen the world

I’m just called some laughable fool

Scratches on the pages are my only friend

They don’t say no and say I pretend

Crippling paint on these tiresome walls

And I can’t escape, no

 

I see the world

Where the wind sings me sleepy

I’ve seen the world

Where I am complete

Yes, I’ve seen the world

There’s no need for mystery

 

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up baby

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up now

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up baby

1,2,3,4

You don’t have to lose

Get up, get up, get up

 

I see the world


dare to speak

Forces hover above

We stand quiet, make no sound

Round and round we go

Love is the only thing that holds us

Thrive together but two worlds collide

Glass wall cuts us short

As you stare in my eyes

With silent words

That you cannot even dare to speak so

 

Don’t you, don’t you call me honey

Hope and pray and crack the heart

If you cannot break that will

Might as well not call me your

Honey, honey

If you cannot break that will

Might as well not call me

 

At a point, stuck and still

We are rumored shadows

Twisted foggy maze

In the shapes of our life’s clock

Your hands can hold what can be unveiled

But then why do you lie

The truth tale

I have no place in my heart for cold so

 

Don’t you, don’t you call me honey

Hope and pray and crack the heart

If you cannot break that will

Might as well not call me

 

How long to figure out

Your courage do what it takes

If you keep on running, running

False accuse ‘ns, your mistake

Try and try and shed my tears

Knowing what’s at the stake

So if you keep on running, running

Might as well run away

 

Don’t you don’t you call me honey

Hope and pray and crack the heart

If you cannot break that will

Might as well not call me so

Don’t you don’t you call me honey

Hope and pray and crack the heart

If you cannot break that will

Might as well not call me your

Honey, honey

If you cannot break that will

Might as well not call me

 

Might as well not call me
