last night all the horrible things in life stormed through my dreams and i just want to shut it up shut it down or shut it off

going where we lost it all yet things before are with us now it hurts it kills it takes the joy it brings no light it brings no love

and what we want most is nowhere to be found some people care theyre going long theyre going deep and still its nowhere to be found

were looking far were searching wide still its nowhere to be found what we want is gone for good its simply nowhere to be found

somewhere is the one that never will burn out is out there looking for a heart looking for a home looking for a hand to stoke its head youre not alone and you never said ill see you again you never said i will i will

somewhere someone says they got it all but thats not even what we want not even close it wont ever be what we want

We want your information
We will do what we must
But not here, or in front of people, or on the phone

We're not all blood sucking leeches
For we all have families too
But that don't mean that we really
love them or that we don't
'Cause I can't love you
And you can't love me
But I can love you
And you can love me
Love me

It's not a confrontation
(all across the world, open your mouth)
We are here because we are broke
(give us what we want, we've had enough)
But we don't expect a hand out or anything
(soul soul soul soul soul)
'Cause I can't help you
And you can't help me
but I can help you
And you can help me
I can help you
You can help me
I can help you
You can help me
Help me
Help you
It's not an impossible situation
Help me
It's not an impossible situation
Help you
It's not an impossible situation
Help me
It's not an impossible situation

I know there is doubt we can do this but I can help you

Take me for a drive to the coastline
Pull me to the depths of the sea
Leave me in the middle of the ocean
I can walk the rest of the way
But I promise not to cry anymore
Although reasons beat the crap out of me
Everyday when I wake up
They are waiting
But I promise not to cry anymore
'Cos it's the same old plot to these things
Oh it's the same old plot to these things
Oh it's the same old plot to these things
Oh it's the same old

Our love
Don't mess with our love
Our love
Is so much stronger
Our love
Don't mess with our love
Our love
Is so much stronger
Our love
Don't mess with our love
Our love
Is so much stronger
Our love
Don't mess with our love
Our love
Is so much stronger
Our love
Don't mess with our love
Our love
Is so much stronger

Oh it's the same old plot to these things
Oh it's the same old plot to these things
Oh it's the same old plot
Same old plot
Same old plot to these things

Oh I promise not to cry
Oh I promise not to cry
Oh I promise not to cry
Anymore

Two days have passed
And all I want is to feel better
They won't be back
And a long weekend is coming up
I felt the house
It was just to see you
For an hour
Hoping for two

I was short of breath
As I passed the doorman for a second time
And it rained all day
I don't have a raincoat of my own
I then arrived
Ten minutes early with no smokes
And I was broke
Without a smoke

All of the time
I thought I was crazy 'cos you told me so
It was profound
Like the piano I was humbled by
Our tongues may have touched
But all I remember was your nose
And I suppose
Our eyes were closed

Two days have passed
And all I want is gone
For good this time


. . .



Feeling
Self-conscious
It's the only way to save us
And forget about your awful past
Do it now or we'll never last
Noble and yet famous
Will they ever have that on us for we've
Got the anti-social plague
We want friends but we'll never beg
And you'd think they would have called out our name
But the voices all sound the same
They do yeah

Don't you lose the faith
How many days are left to live
When we've given all we can give
Don't you lose the faith
We're tired of being held in this place
When it's half of the world away

Don't you lose the faith
How many days are left to live
When we've given all we can give
Don't you lose the faith
We're tired of being held in this place
When it's half the world away
So tired of being held in this place
When it's half the world away
Don't you lose the the faith
Don't you lose the the faith
Don't you lose the the faith
Don't you lose the the faith

This town
A likely down
Well, my summer in Perth was nice
Gimme Corona
Aeroplanes
And buxom dames
Oh I haven't been sleeping well
I've been a loner

My heart is aching
My back is breaking
It's me
It's you
It's me
It's you

So you've decided on an art school
So it's not that you were trying to be cruel
All she wanted was a boyfriend
Or a means to justifiable ends
Thirty years ago this wouldn't be
I was happy
Last night I flickered off to sleep at four AM
Now it's seven
Well, the ocean is long and deep but I'm gonna try
Maybe I'll die (don't hold me back, don't hold me back,
don't hold me back, don't hold me back)
Maybe I'll die (don't hold me back, don't hold me back,
don't hold me back, don't hold me back)
Maybe I'll die (don't hold me back, don't hold me back,
don't hold me back, don't hold me back)
Maybe I'll die (don't hold me back, don't hold me back,
don't hold me back, don't hold me back)

I
Have
Been terrified
By the thought of losing you
So very terrified
By the thought of losing you
Stop telling me
I don't want to know
Stop telling because I just don't ever
Want to know
No no no
No no no
No no no
No no no

I've been petrified
By the thought of losing you
Absolutely horrified
By the thought of losing oyu
Stop telling me
I don't want to know
Stop telling me because I just don't want to know
No no no
No no no
No no
No no
No no

Whatdya say that we go down
together and try to find out all the answers
Whatdya say that we go down
together and try to find out what we missed
I will drop everything you better
believe it
'Cos I mean it
And I know that we can last if we forget about the past and start again

Never
(Destroy us)
Never
(Destroy us)
Never
(Destroy us)
Never
(Destroy us)

We've been surrounded
For it was genius
There was no other way
And we know we won't escape
All of our time
Spent on warm and sunny days
From you there's nowhere left
I want to run

Stay
My arms are flailing
Am I a failure
My god the pressure's on
And I still don't have a son
My body's sore from sleeping on the couch because you're gone
These feelings that I have tonight
Waiting for the phone to ring
My stomach hurts, it's tearing us apart

Stay
Stay
There's nowhere left to run
Stay

I get so paranoid
I've got to think of warm and sunny days
Imagining and planning out the course of both our lives
but that is as far
As I am willing to go
Planning out the rest of both our lives
Stay
Stay
There's nowhere left to run
Stay
Stay
There's nowhere left to run


. . .


I have never cried in anybody's arms
The way that I have often cried in yours
Please be the one to take my tears away
I was 22, I've had my share of views
I just can't steal that "happiness" from you
But I'll be the one to take your tears away

I can't believe the things you say
tell me, tell me
tell me the lies

Fasting love will lead us all to nowhere
When, when will we learn
I shall avenge the death of all the romance
Until, until I'm gone

I can't believe the things you say
tell me, tell me
tell me the lies
I can't believe the things you say
tell me, tell me
tell me the lies
I can't believe the things you say
tell me, tell me
tell me the lies
tell me the lies
tell me the lies
tell me, tell me the lies

. . .



We have not wasted all of our lives
Empty heads
Empty mouths
Empty hearts
Empty souls


. . .



Let's just keep fighting the end
We're holding hands
We're making plans
For life
Let's keep on fighting the end
Last time I swear or
We'll go nowhere tonite
Tonite

Don't you think that now
Is the time to move on
If you don't mind well I'll
Just keep holding on
For good

Let's just keep fighting
The end of the world
We will hold hands and
We will make plans
For life
