In the morning
I could take the burning sun
I could be the only warning but I'm not the only
So forgive me, Cause its more than I can bear
In demand I make my mind up by deciding not to care

Stop giving me choices
Stop giving me choices

I'm the victim, of this day and age
I've forgotten how to feel
I've forgotten how to change
So I surrender, to the apple of my eye
I surrender to the wind, I will let the wind decide

Stop giving me choices (x4)

I could break it, I could break it till it hurts
I could take whatever words you say, pretend I never heard
So forgive me, shouldn't be so hard
It's they way I'm put together, so your never getting past

Cant we talk this through
Actions are not what I'm used to
Cant we talk this through
Actions are not what I'm used to

Stop giving me choices(x4)
(I surrender)
Stop giving me choices(x4)
(Just forgive me)

Without friction, we would float up into space
Maybe you could be the friction that will keep me in my place
In the morning, I could take the burning sun
I could be the only warning but I'm not the only one

Love it when you let go
Love it when you let go
Love it when you let go
When you let go, let go

How does it feel
To spit out sunny skies?
And do you believe it's for real
That you've always got it right?

When the words you had explode
And you swallow them up whole
No you gotta let go, let go
You'll love it when you let go, let go, let go

It's gonna be a bumpy ride
But it sure beats standing still
I know we can work it out
And I've no doubt that we will

When it hurts more than it shows
It's not the easiest of roads
No, it's never black and white
And you can keep your happy life

Isn't it hard
Making it look so easy?
And you can never drop your guard
'Cause you're afraid of what you'll see

When the words to that affect
Have no effect on you at all
But you gotta let go, let go
You'll love it when you let go, let go, let go

It's gonna be a bumpy ride
But it sure beats standing still
I know we can work it out
And I've no doubt that we will

When it hurts more than it shows
It's not the easiest of roads
No, it's never black and white
And you can keep your happy life

If only you could let go
You'd love it if you let go
Ooh, if only you could let go
If only you could let go, let go, let it go

It's gonna be a bumpy ride
But it sure beats standing still
I know we can work it out
And I've no doubt that we will

When it hurts more than it shows
It's not the easiest of roads
No, it's never black and white
And you can keep your happy life

It's gonna be a bumpy ride
But it sure beats standing still
I know we can work it out
And I've no doubt that we will

When it hurts more than it shows
It's not the easiest of roads
No, it's never black and white
And you can keep your happy life

Love it when you let go
Love it when you let go
If only you could let go
And only you could let go
If only you could let go
If only you could let go
If only you could let go

. . .


I don't know why you love me like you do.
It's not like I'm special, Special like you.
Open you eyes she's just been reading lines.
But she's ever so convincing,
I want to believe her this time.

(Chorus)
Who said anything about falling in love?
Lost my mind when I surrendered,
Everything to find you're enough.
This is my mistake because,
Who said anything about falling in love, in love, in love.

Someone like you was made to be enjoyed.
But it won't be by me and that leaves me terrified.
I'm coming to terms I know I didn't mean a thing,
To you didn't mean a thing but it,
Meant quite a lot to me,
Meant too much I can see.

(Chorus)

I know, I know, that you're just being kind but it's giving me false hope.
I know, I know, that I only need a little just a little bit of a false hope.
I know I know that I'm only seeing what I, what I want.

(Final Chorus X2)

. . .


Only love only love will save us now
Only love will talk me down

You're my unlikely hero
I try so hard but you won't surrender
I want you know

I like everybody
But not everybody likes me
My love's not an island
It's the tip of a volcano

I'm alive I'm alive but only just
I'm alive no one to trust

Gumbaro
Everybody talks
Gumbaro
No one hears
Gumbaro
Everybody talks
Gumbaro

Only love only love will save us now
Only love will talk me down
Only love only love will save us now
Only love will save me now

. . .


I need a seconde opinion
I want you cross - examined
Where there's a will there's a way
And there's a will alright

I close my eyes and count to ten
And when i open them again
I want you to pretend that when
You said no you didn't say a word
Coz it's easier

We're lovers in my head
We're lovers in my soul
I disregard what you said
So close your eyes and wacth the stars glow

I like the face that is hanging
From your pretty little head
I like the way that it's body
Lies on my bed

I've not met him but he's handsome
I'm sure you've made the perfect choice
I go to tell you i love you
But i lost my voice and couldn't say a word
Coz it's easier

We're lovers in my head
We're lovers in my soul
I disregard what you said
So close your eyes and wacth the stars glow

Love flew away
Love flew away from me

. . .


I want to live by the sea
Live by the ocean
I did my best to fit in
But I outsayed my welcom
I change my name and my friends
Run till the land ends
But i'm always waiting for me
No matter how hard i pretend

Somewhere i can be free
So big it's swallowing me
Along with everything i used to be
Dive i before i explode
Where armies are swallowed
So many monsters in you
So many monsters in you
So many monsters in you
So many...

For once in your lifetime will you
Do what you want not what you have to

I want to live by the sea
Want to live by the ocean
Though i start over again
I'll never change where i come from
Loss of my momentum
Set me in motion
My heart and soul were for free
But nobody would take them

For once in your lifetime will you
Do what you want not what you have to
Follow me only if you want to
But do what you want not what you have to

Tear it down and start over again

. . .


All alone i fought the cause
Up against the clock that studied me
It's the life anonymous
Trusted with the lives of all of uss
I failes to see the flaws in the details i adored

I played God
I playde God
Played God

Science lay his heavy head
On the sold shoulders of consequence
Rushed where angels dare not tread
To force the hand of natures accidents
Failed to see the flaws in the detail i adored

And played God
Played God
Played God

Said oh my God the devil's in the details
Oh Lord i just didn't look there
We looked so long we looked so hard

Said oh my God the devil's in the details
Oh Lord i just didn't look there
We looked so long we looked so hard
I looked so hard and for so long

Said oh my God the devil's in the detail
Oh God i'm pretty sure we looked there
I tried so hard and for so long
I tried so hard and for so long

Said oh the devil's in the detail
The devil's in the detail

. . .


Take your sharpe sharp scissors-hands
And cut me some slack
And i'll spin you in wool
And pull it over your eyes
Because i'm charming

Take a long long look at me
And give me light
Cos the flame has expired
It tired of many flaws
And went up in smoke

I can make you feel better
I can make you feel much better than
I can make you feel better than this this this this

Glorious
Make me feel glorious
Once more
And i won't let you down

Glorious
Make me feel glorious
Once more
Time will only tell

Take that sharp sharp tongue of yours
And cut me in two
I'll attack from both sides
And Hyde under your skin
Because i need you

Don't make me cry it's bad enough
I made it hell or all of us
What's it like being glorious

Glorious
Can i please be glorious
Like you
Time will only tell

. . .


Meet me tonight
By the Mulberry Lake
I got two legs thet they said they'd break
Such a silly thing to do fall in love you

Don't be scared
I got plans of my own
We may be born here but this isn't our home
Such a simple thing to do run away with you

They say they'll come for me toniht
They say they'll come for me toniht
They say they'll come for me and none of them will comfort me
Unless we leave this town tonight

We're better together
You and i we were meant forever
Don't get hurt by upsetters
You and i we were made to measure

Don't know how but they're onto us
My lips were sealed who betrayed my trust
Such a silly thing to do fall in love with you

I see stars and there's a pain in my chest
I fell hard but you said baby knows best
My God what were tou thinking of
We're cut from the same cloth

If tou lied i'll tear the sky in two
The blood red moon will hide it's face from view
The sea will boil and froth at very prospect of me and you

I'm taking backthis town tonight
I'm taking backthis town tonight
I'm taking backthis town
Nothing good comes without a fight
Nothing good comes without a fight
Nothing good comes without a fight
We the brave make our stand tonight

. . .


Monday left in the morning, and the week flew by.
You took your leave without warning, not even a reason why.
Your lips about to be tongue tied, are you loud and clear?
Now I'm telling you that I want you, yeah.

So now it's b-b-bye b-b-baby won't you giddy up?(Woahohoh) before my love runs cold.
And if you make me wait I'll give you up.(ohohoh)
Cause your loves on hold

You told me I should be patient, that I should bide my time. (Bide my time)
How far does it take you no?

So now it's b-b-bye b-b-baby won't you giddy up?(Woahohoh) before my love runs cold.
And if you make me wait I'll give you up.(ohohoh)
Cause your loves on hold b-b-baby won't you giddy up? (ohohoh) Before my love runs cold.
And if you make me wait I'll give you up.(ohohoh)
Cause your loves on hold, your loves on hold, your loves on hold.But you won't be told.

Baby won't you giddy up? (ohohoh) Before my love runs cold.
And if you make me wait I'll give you up. (woahohoh)
Cause your loves on hold.

B-b-baby won't you giddy up? (ohohoh) Before my love runs cold.
And if you make me wait I'll give you up. (woahohoh)
Cause your loves on hold.

B-b-b-baby won't you giddy up?

B-b-b-baby won't you giddy up?
And if you make me wait I'll give you up. Give you up, give you up

(Ohohohohaoh)

B-b-b-baby won't you giddy up?
And if you make me wait I'll give you up, give you up.

We were the lucky few
A luck we soon outgrew
And now onstead we drift again
How i miss Sarajevo

Oh we were lost at sea
To pause for thought then we
Slip beneath the foam and fall
Down to the seabed

Good time die young
For the Faraway Kids on the run
Nowhere to hide
The Faraway Kids
The Faraway Kids

At night my soul sets sail
In minute detail
When i wake i cry for i
Have lost Sarajevo

Oh the charges lacked all proof
And failed to liht the fuse
For the Little Brutes
But i forsook Sarajevo

Good times die young
For the Faraway Kids on the run
Nowhere to hide

Faraway Kids
Faraway Kids

I can't outrun
The terrible thing i have done
I can't outrun

Faraway Kids
Faraway Kids

. . .


They caught wind of the weak and tied him to a tree today
Paul's father says they're pests destined to just be strays
They broke his little back with a little game they played
Boy will be boys isn't that what grown ups say

i just stood there silent rooted to the spot
Marveling at how brave i'm not

Don't you see it's already too late for them
Where are men of action can't they do something
The sun was growing faint and slipping from God's hand
The day refused to wait and rushed to bury it's head into the sand

If i could only get up and stand up for myself
I have to join the Little Brutes sadly i'm not bully-proof
