He looks so good, my honey to me,
Everything I want, everything I need,
We got a good thing going,
Feeling in my heart can only keep on growing,
Too good to be true.

Chequered love, got me thinking of
All the mess I made, just a ton of trouble,
Always left bad blood,
When I was a kid in America,
Pulling it apart.

Can I keep it under control?
Oh I could never keep my eyes on the road for long enough to know,
Oh ain't it true,
Always looking out for something better than you choose,
Pulling it apart.

A siren for you, baby,
Taking over now I feel you
Taking over now I want you
Lying on a bed of roses
On a sea of broken arrows
I can feel my honey,
Oh yeah, don't fall under my wheels
Run over, just like a juggernaut
Oh yeah, send his body back to me.

Jump-start heart, now don't fall apart,
I gotta get it right,
So tell me, Killer, what you got?
Don't wanna blow it cos I know just what
I hold in my hands.

Parted lips never tell me to go
I wanna do you right, never be another like you, I know,
Oh ain't it true,
Always looking out for something better, yeah you are,
Pulling it apart.

A siren for you baby
Taking over now I feel you
Taking over now I want you
Lying on a bed of roses
On a sea of broken arrows
I can feel my honey,
Oh yeah, don't fall under my wheels
Run over, just like a juggernaut
Oh yeah, send his body back to me.

Pick him up and sew him up and send him to me,
Fix him up, shake him up, send him to me.

Pick him up and sew him up and send him to me,
Fix him up, shake him up, send him to me.
Taking over, honey, I can feel it in me.
Fix him up, send him to me, yeah!

Ain't it true,
Always looking out for something better, yeah you are,
Pulling it apart.

Baby, taking over now I feel you
Taking over now I want you
Lying on a bed of roses
On a sea of broken arrows
I can feel my honey,
Oh yeah, don't fall under my wheels
Run over, just like a juggernaut

. . .


Find a book unopened, write my
resolutions
A rescue plan is all I need, to
guarantee a change in me

All these things you think you are
A little charm can only get so far
Oh yeah fakes we're on to you
So unexcited by the things you do

Not afraid that I will fall, I have more
potential
A rescue plan is all I need, and you
will see a change in me

All these things you think you are
A little charm can only get so far
Oh yeah fakes we're on to you
So unexcited by the things you do

If I could find my way
I would never go back to you
If I could find my way
I would never go back to you
If I could find my way
I would never go back to you
If I could find my way
I would never go back to you

Caroline, inspiration true
Left it all behind and turned her hand to something new
Suddenly left for better shores
With the kind of reckless abandon that we applaud

If I could, I would follow you

Caroline showed us what to do
Made it on your own terms oh yes, we look up to you
You call the tune

And if I could I would fly through the air
I would fly out to meet you
Cross the void and travel interplanetary

Oh! Lets go, stick it to the rules we wanna be like you oh
I can see your light up in the sky, moving over city satellites
Pick me up, take me to another solar system I can cut, oh
Help me find the strength to follow through
Caroline I couldn't do it without you, oh

Stuck in a rut, sunk inside a groove
I could disappear here, all my instincts say it's true
I wanna do something that has merit to it
That will strike a chord and resonate as far as you

Oh if I could, I would fly through the air
I would fly out to meet you
Cross the void and travel interplanetary

Oh! Lets go, stick it to the rules we wanna be like you, oh
I can see your light up in the sky, moving over city satellites
Pick me up, take me to another solar system I can cut, oh
Help me find the strength to follow through
Caroline I couldn't do it without you

Oh do you think that I could ever make a difference
If I really try?
Help me find a way to cut loose
Caroline I couldn't do it without you

I was unaware that you were gonna go
I didn't know you well enough to know
I've always thought of you and how you're moving on
On, on, yeah you're a real paragon
On, on, on yeah you're a real paragon
On, on, on yeah you're a real paragon
On, on, on yeah you're a real paragon

If I could I would follow you
If I could I would follow you
If I could I would follow you
If I could I would follow you

Summer is coming
And I hope I feel better by the time
it does
Then I could leave my room my
cocoon
Find the door and walk out to the
sun

Feel like I've moved on
Lessons learnt my mind is feeling
calm and so reassured
Yeah things are on the up
I'm on top of the situation I've
endured

Took my time to come around
From the day that I was shot down
Oh now I know that

I confused myself with somebody
else
I didn't know what to do, cos I was
somebody new
Oh now I know that
I confused myself with somebody
else
I didn't know what to do, know what
to do

A Silhouette in the shadows
I drank too much and darkness
settled in and drew in me
And oh my bleeding heart did start
to repair
And I could clearly see

Open the windows
Serotonin and the vitamins C D and E
Oh let it all sink in to your skin close
your eyes
And you can feel the release

Took my time to come around
From the day that I was shot down
Oh now I know that

I confused myself with somebody
else
I didn't know what to do, cos I was
somebody new
Oh now I know that
I confused myself with somebody
else
I didn't know what to do, know what
to do

Summer is coming
And I hope I feel better by the time
it does
Then I could leave my room
and walk out to the sun

I confused myself with somebody
else
I didn't know what to do, cos I was
somebody new
Oh now I know that
I confused myself with somebody
else
I didn't know what to do, know what
to do

Tried so many ways to come through
for you
Tried to get it right and really
improve
And yeah I really wanted to
Took my time to come around
Breathing in and breathing out
Won't you see what I can do
When I leave my room


. . .


Where is the sign?
Been waiting all this time
And the thought that comes to mind
Maybe there's nothing to find

Where is the light?
So far out of sight
Maybe there's nothing to be found
And all I am right now

Is down, down down down down
down down down down
Down down down down down

Where are my dreams?
And where is my sign?
There must be something to be
found
Cos all I am right now

Is down, down down down down
down down down down
Down down down down down

I am not who you are
You are on higher ground
Not sure what to say
Won't make a sound
I am not who you are
You are on higher ground
Not sure what to say
I am feeling down

Oh I am tired
I'll stay in for a while
I'm not so good to have around
Cos all I am right now

Is down, down down down down
down down down down
Down down down down down


. . .


A rocket, a blazing trail of orange
Awaken the dragon, a new age of
komodo
A feeling uneasy, that anything
could happen
A message, a warning, a prototype
of things to come

A rocket, a message, a blazing trail
of orange
A future uncertain, where anything
could happen
A warning, Kyoto, a new age of
komodo
A feeling uneasy, something wicked
this way comes

A rocket, a blazing trail of orange
Awaken the dragon, now anything
could happen
A feeling uneasy, a new age of
komodo
A future uncertain, a prototype of
things to come
A rocket, a blazing trail across the
sky
A future where anything could
happen
Uneasy, uneasy, uneasy, uneasy
A message, Kyoto, something wicked
this way comes

Speaker emulation system
In the miracle strain
The weather by Nick Cave
Where I'm calling from is the dark
end
The night lightning struck
16,000 times
Yeah in one night

Speaker emulation system
In the skin of a dream
Body naked sleep
Where I'm calling from is the dark
end
The night lightning struck
16,000 times
Yeah in one night

Speeding across the Atlantic
Electrical storms have gathered
Losing a sense of balance
Inside
Racing across the Atlantic
Nobody ever noticed
Signs

Something good is always gonna
come
But nothing quite as good as
You and I will always know
That nothing's quite as good as
Times when we're alone


. . .


Feeling the warmth of the sun
Wash across the ocean
Rise into the heavens above
Rivers have spun, rivers have spun

I wanna feel something new
Don't wanna leave this scene with
you
Something gonna happen here soon
And I'm getting caught in the middle

I'm staying yeah you could stay with
me come on
We're burning brighter in the sun
why you wanna spoil my fun?
Try to let go, yeah I know

We're in a whirlpool uh-oh
Spinning faster in a river so slow
I'm gonna lose it it's true
Getting faster in a river so blue

What's the matter Charly with you?
I got a feeling that you're gonna
come through
Searching for some sign of life
On the tail of killing time
Just when things are looking alright
You try to make trouble here for me
White horses are hunting for you
And there's nothing you can do
So why you wanna spoil my fun?
Try to let go, yeah I know

We're in a whirlpool uh-oh
Spinning faster in a river so slow
I'm gonna lose it it's true
Getting faster in a river so blue
So put your hand on your heart
And you'll get into the rhythm I know
It's a whirlpool uh-oh
Spinning faster in a river so slow

What's the matter Charly with you?
You feel alive don't ya?
Charly what's the matter with you?
I got a feeling that you're gonna
come through

Hold on to your tongue, call a truce
I'll give you something to chew
Finger on the pulse i'm spinning to
Uncharted waters with you
Feeling the warmth of the sun
Feeling the warmth of the sun
You can stay with me come on
Why you wanna spoil my fun?
Try to let go I know

It's a whirlpool uh-oh
Spinning faster in a river so slow
We're gonna lose it it's true
Spinning faster in a river so blue
So put your hand on your heart
And you'll get into the rhythm I know
It's a whirlpool uh-oh
Getting faster in a river so slow
We're gonna lose it it's true
Spinning faster in a river so blue
So put your hand on your heart
And you'll get into the rhythm I know
Charly what's the matter with you?
I gotta a feeling that you're gonna
come
Yeah that you're gonna come
through

Late one day, I led Spanish boy
astray

His name was Antonio

Took him out, and of his charms I
had no doubt
Stayed drinking Mohitos
Tender in the bedroom is all I can
remember
And the way he looked when he
moved so near
In my ear, he whispered and shed a
tear
Oh my bambino
Tender in the bedroom is all I can
remember
And the way he looked when he
moved so near

And in the morning when I woke
there was no Antonio
Just some money that he’d left for
the memory of me
And oh my beautiful guitar, that’s
what really broke my heart
Had been stolen by the two-faced
low lothario

One night stand, lover you got out
of hand
Oh yeah you went too far
Big mistake, falling for a first class
fake
Who left me for my guitar
Tender in the bedroom is all I can
remember
And the way he looked when he
moved so near
Through my tears, I would have to
find my dear
Guano Antonio
Tender in the bedroom is all I can
remember
And the way he looked when he
moved so near

And in the morning when I woke
there was no Antonio
Just some money that he’d left for
the memory of me
And oh my beautiful guitar, that’s
what really broke my heart
Had been stolen by the two-faced
lothario

Oh my beautiful guitar
On and on I go till I find you
My beautiful guitar
On and on I go till I find you

Oh I know, oh I know, oh I know
Antonio
Won’t be back as I discovered on his
track
He’s gone back to Mexico, oh
Antonio

Oh my beautiful guitar
On and on I go till I find you
My beautiful guitar
On and on I go till I find you

And in the morning when I woke
there was no Antonio
Just some money that he’d left for
the memory of me
And oh my beautiful guitar, that’s
what really broke my heart
Had been stolen by the two-faced
lothario
Yeah had been stolen by the two-
faced lothario
Yeah had been stolen by the dirty
two-faced lover bastardo


. . .



I'm trying to find the words to say
To make you feel much better Fay
And turn your head around
And break it down

Don't you want a better view
Oh come on yeah please say you do
And the wind'll change
And part the dark clouds over you

There's nothing to be gained by
Running all these bad times through your head again
Stomach's ablaze with hellfire
But don't you know that these things always end the same

Your pretty face is stained with pain
Your act is getting harder to sustain
But I see and hear it
There are other ways

Forget the people who don't care for you
Oh I love you, you know its true
It's so hard
Stay with me I'll see you through

There's nothing to be gained by
Running all these bad times through your head again
Stomach's ablaze with hellfire
But don't you know that these things always end the same

The same in simple words I try to say
That everything will be Ok
The grey will fade
And there'll be rainbow skies above you Fay

Let's go somewhere we don't know
It's not running away
Just trying to take control
The sunshine and the blue
Maybe you'll find something there for you
Oh I hope so, So lets go

There's nothing to be gained by
Running all these bad times through your head again
Stomach's ablaze with hellfire
