"Paper Aeroplane"

Well this stone that I have swallowed
Isn't going down so well
And this road that I have followed
Is leading me to Hell

And toi a dit it didn't matter
But I think you're a liar
Is this one of your talents
That stokes the very feu that burns you
Each time toi try to live

And the earth will turn below you
The pressure is building
And something has to give
Oh something has to give

And when I build toi a steeple
You say it's incomplete
'Cause toi need the whole cathedral
To satisfy the need

And you're like a paper aeroplane
That never seems to land
Flying blind through anything
Straight into the hand...

toi grew wings, on your heart
But toi let it out your ribcage,
and it flew into the dark

Like a ghost, just like a ghost
And it flutters par my window
When I need my sleep the most..

So choose my weapon and choose my way
It's easy saying nothing when there's nothing to say
Thinking about it everyday, starting to notice you're fading away

Fade like a shadow, fade like a shadow, fade like a shadow, fade..
Fade like a shadow, fade like a shadow..

You want eyes, in your hands,
and power in your pocket,
as I stop to watch toi dance

With your hips swinging they shake, hips swinging, got your
hips swinging, they...

No I know I took for granted that things
Would always go the way I wanted oh
I was going to be a treetop
A sea, a boat, a rock of ages

I don't always get it right
I'd see it in a different kind of light

Pay my lip service
Keep it eloquent
Optimistic but
Never quite elegant
Still a weirdo
Still a weirdo, after all these years

I'd always thought it's automatic
to grow into a soul less static
But here I am upon the same spot
Attempting to lift off into space

I don't always get it right
But a thousand different ways
And I just might

Pay my lip service
Keep it eloquent
Optimistic but
Never quite elegant
Still a weirdo
Still a weirdo, after all these years
Still a weirdo
Still a weirdo, after all these years

Pay my lip service
Keep it eloquent
Optimistic but
Never quite elegant
Still a weirdo
Still a weirdo, after all these years

Still a weirdo
Still a weirdo, after all these years

After all these years

"Someday Soon"

I think it's time to put myself away
Seek out a little silence
Close the doors and sit a while
Walk a little

And as I put my words away
The flow slows
See this penny in a stream
Picking it up is easy.

Follow the shape of it.
Jump in.
Swallow it whole.
Jump in.

Even though I know my way around
Possibly there's something new I found
Holding on for finding solid ground
Someday soon.
Someday soon.

I'll turn myself into the grass
And I'll grow
Take this l’espace above my head
And live a little, little.

Gonna wear my feathered headdress
Like an Indian chief.
Gonna stretch out both my arms
I'm gonna test the temperature....

"Beauty Of Uncertainty"

I need a mirror
In the eyes of a man.
I need no protection
From my bullet-proof plan.

I've got a ticket
For all that I lack.
toi might think that I'm gone for good
But I know that I'm coming back.

Sit at my table
Sip from my bowl.
Feel like I know toi now
And I will do until I get old.

toi might not see me
But trust that I'll stay.
But there's no sense in traveling
If we've already been that way.

Night is a matter
Hidden in grass
Bite like a light
Depends on the ways
To see how long it lasts

But toi know better
toi stand your ground
Might just sting a little
But she knows you're sticking around

The beauty of uncertainty...

Ooh...
Ah, ooh...

"Saving My Face"

See the look on my face
From staying too long in one place
But every time I try to leave
I find I keep on stalling
Feel like a big old stone
Standing par a strength of my own
But every time the morning breaks
I know I'm closer to falling

I'm all out of love, all out of faith
I would give everything just for a taste
Everything's here, all out of place
Losing my memory, saving my face
Saving my face, saving my face
Saving my face.

Listening to what toi say
Even though I look the other way
You could never understand the feeling
Of what I'm leaving

I'm all out of love, all out of faith
I would give...

"I Don't Want toi Now"

Show me what it is you've done
Pull the covers off in front of everyone
So toi want us all to see
What toi created for yourself in spite of me

You can try to tie me down
You can try to string me up
But toi have no luck now
Please don't ever let me down again
It shouldn't be allowed
Please don't ever make me frown again
You have shown me how
Please don't try to be my friend again
Because I don't want you, I don't want toi now
I don't want toi now

So now toi learned to make your bed
Far be it from me to be the one to pat your head
Truth is I could have pulled toi home
But toi already advertised...

"Hopeless"

Hopeless

[Chorus:]
Everybody says it's just another decay of the soul
But I know I'm a hopeless follower of anything to take me
Away from this hole in the ground
I found it's hopeless clinging to a feeling
Like a poisson on a line, so blinded par the lately
Hopeless, no plus saying that there's no plus time.

I've was trying far too hard
To be what I thought I should be
I was playing wild cards and
Seeing things that weren't in front of me
Like a little tiger, play fighting,
I was hurting myself, again and again

Because I'm hopeless.

[Chorus]

That there's no plus time.

Well I'm just discovering I'm living...

"Hold On"

Say toi to me
You're a bird with an eye for anything shiny
Searchin' the land
For a hero of a man
You say I need
More than my fair share of attention
But I think toi know
That just isn't so

Underneath, I felt the feu of a burning question
Tearin' me apart
Right from the very start
And now I see
That it don't take a trick of the light to excite me
So strong
So long
You'll see

Hold on
To what you
Been donné lately
Hold on
To what you
Know toi got
Hold on
To what you
Been donné lately
Hold on
Cause the world will turn if you're ready ou not

Simplicity
A cœur, coeur of gold, an old head, and young shoulders
Quiet and lovely...

"Funnyman"

Locked inside your head
Do toi realize the things toi said
Never made sense?

We can sit here and laugh
But we don't know the half of it,
In your defense

We've been talking a while
And it seems to me each time toi smile
Lights are coming on
But they don't burn too strong
And they won't stay for long
And then they're gone again

Funnyman, gotta try to be something wonderful
Funnyman, listening to the world turning on its sail
Turn it into a brand new universe
Funnyman could never be anything else.

Do toi remember that night
When I had to play your angel
Saving your soul?
Even though toi were holding on...

"White Bird"

White bird with a black tail
Half dark, and a face so pale
Do toi know what your future holds?
Over your side of the road

White bird with a black tail
toi look like an open sail
Made me look up from my shoe
To montrer me what toi stand to lose.

White bird, white bird
With your face so pale
White bird, white bird
Where'd toi get that tail?
White bird, white bird
With a black tail

White feathers dipped in tar
Hard to tell how old toi are
Wondering how much toi know
About all of us below

Half of toi is heavenly,
montrer off your purity.
The rest of toi is from the street
Like to laugh where they both meet

White bird, white bird
With your face so pale
White bird, white bird
Where'd toi get that tail?
White bird, white bird
With your face so pale
White bird, white bird
With a black tail.

"If Only"

Walking around in the days
Out for days now
Talking it up as amazing,
A maze that I'm in.
Looking at the stars for the answers
But all that I found was silence and dirty ground

If only toi could see me now
If only toi could hear me out
If only it was only me now.

Listen just a little bit harder
The hearts tell the truth
Is it just a pistol on the edge
To keep toi moving
You're looking like you're looking for something
And now, you're surrounded par silence, whoa.

If only toi could see me now
If only toi could hear me out
If only it was only me now.

Silence, silence, silence.
You're surrounded by
Silence,...

"Little Favours"

I slipped softly through your slim fingers
Feeling traces, I embrace this
Feeling that lingers.
Oh it lingers, it lingers...

So take me far away
And hold me close to your heart
Do me just this little favor
For I do, yes I do l’amour you.
Yes I do l’amour you.

This science, sets easy
So peacefully
Like the skin, like the skin upon your body
On your body, your body

So take me far away now
And hold me close to your heart
Do me just this little favor
For I do, yes I do l’amour you.

Little universe between our backs...

This little universe between our backs
Is so beautiful, and colorful, I lean on that.

"Throw Me A Rope"

I want toi between me and the feeling I get
When I miss you
But everything here is telling me I should be fine
So why is it so above as below
That I'm missing toi every time

I got used to toi whispering things to me
Into the evening
We follow the sun and his couleurs left this world
It seems to me that I'm definitely
Hearing the best that I've heard

So throw me a rope
To hold me in place
Show me a clock
For counting my days down
Cause everything's easier when your beside me
Come back and find me
Cause I feel alone

And whenever toi go
It's like holding my breath under water
I have to admit
That...

"Change"

The wind is cold tonight
ou so I am told
I don't really know
And as I kill my life
There's nothing left to show
How does that blow hit you?
And if I change am I denying what was said?
If I remain the same
am I creating greater problems instead?

Do toi ever think you're being thought about?
Do toi still believe we need to sort things out?
Does it matter now
All those things we said
I want to know can I still creep into your lit at night?
Leave your head alone

Well, the wind is cold tonight
ou so I am told
I don't really know, no
And as I kill my life
There's nothing left to show
How does that blow hit you?
And if I change am I denying what was said?
If I remain the same
am I creating greater problems instead?

Do toi ever think you're being thought about?
Do toi still believe we need to sort things out?
Does it matter now
All those things we said
I want to know can I still creep into your lit at night?

"Gone To The Dogs"

Since you've been gone
Gone to the dogs
In a round about way
You're still sing
chant along
I can see it in your face

Everywhere toi go
I'm there with you
Still part of you
Never let toi go at it alone
If toi do
I'll make sure toi are standing on your feet
Cause life could be sweet

But now you're gone
Gone to the dogs
I don't know toi like I did

So why don't toi say
Say it out loud
All these things toi hold inside of yourself
Holding on tight
As if you're frightened of the ride

Everywhere toi go
It goes with you
Takes part of you
And never lets toi go at it alone
If it would I know toi could be so much plus than this
And life could be bliss

I never hold toi up
And no I'll never let toi down
toi know I do my best
If I ever held toi up
No, toi never let me down
toi let yourself down, let me down

But now you're gone
Gone to the dogs
I don't know toi like I did

"Boo Hoo"

If I was looking for you
Would toi be easy to find
Would I be looking all night?
And if I got lost
Would toi go looking for me?
Or would toi be alright
On your own?

Oh in the light of day
It feels right
Comfortable to the bone
From head to toe
Gone the evening when the shadows fall
Will I call your name?
But it's not the same as having toi here

If I was a seconde too late
Or a moment too soon
Or an heure too long
Tell me baby would toi wait a bit longer?
I wonder if toi would
Or would toi be long gone?
Would toi be long, would toi be long

Oh in the light of day
It feels right
Comfortable to the bone
From head...

"Golden Age"

Put your hands on the wheel
Let the golden age begin
Let the window down
Feel the moonlight on your skin
Desert wind, cool your aching head
Weight of the world
Drift away instead

Oh, these days I hardly get by
I don't even try

There's a treacherous road
With a desolated view
As distant lights
They hear their foreign view
Sun don't shine
Even when it's day
Drive all night
Just to feel like you're okay

Oh, these days I barely get by
I don't even try
I don't even try

"One Day"

Look up and he'll seem far away
They still see plus than you
And on my back I see these clouds above
They still l’amour me
More than you

And I know I don't have to wait for words
I can walk away and listen to the birds
Listen to the birds
They don't sing the things I want to hear
They don't change, they stay the same

I would dearly l’amour to run away
From you're shadow
For just one day
Cause I would dearly l’amour to run away
From you're shadow
For just one day

And I don't ever want to steal your time
Cause toi seem fine
But I feel blue
I don't want to say the things I do
Cause I know I feel it plus than you

And...

"Girl And The Ghost"

The girl and the ghost
Sit in the corner
The girl and the ghost
Seems they have a lot to say
The girl and the ghost
Haven't seen each other in 3 years
The girl and the ghost
Feel simple secondes slipped away
Slipped away

The ghost and the girl
Commonly connected par something bigger
A phenomenal that sets off the eternal trigger
That lets the light through that usually goes
Around and around and around

The girl and the ghost
Meet in the corridor
The girl and the ghost
They touch fingers and walk right through
The girl and the ghost
Feel so familiar and fearless
The girl and the ghost
Know each...
