So many times
I said that I love them
Looking over my shoulder at the door
So many times
I can’t live without her
The wheel kept turning round
My feeling’s changed
I went my own way
What can I say
To make you stay?

Cos in my dreams
They smother all over me
And I’m trying to explain
So many arms
Reach from my memories
Pull all at once
I’m lost amongst
The folds in their skin
I did you wrong
But I’m sorry now
LyricsAnd I’ll show you how

If you were here now
You couldn’t change
you wouldn’t understand
but I’m ready now I’m ready now
I’ll make you proud I was your man
and sing a song
but it’s so ugly now
and I’ll show you how

cos I’m ready now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now
I’m ready now
Hey I’m ready now

Can we start again?
so many times I said that I loved them
I’m ready now
but I’m ready now
Can we start again?
so many times
I can’t live without her
The years was more than I could bear
It’s turning round

But in my dreams Can we start again?
They smother all over me I’m ready now
And I’m trying to explain Can we start again?

So many arms reach from my memory
The wheels kept turning round

Love’s fading babe
I can see it in your eyes
Your kiss is just the same but it’s just a sweet disguise
Ain’t like just luck
To worry about me
When we promise to be our world
Love each other for eternity

Chorus:
If you’re looking for a way out
I won’t stand in your way
If you’re looking for a way out
Don’t stop at the tears that I’m crying
They’ll only make you wanna stay
Don’t kiss me again cos I’m trying
To keep you from running away

Oh baby tell me I’m wrong
Just say I’m crazy.. it’s with me that you belong
It’s never easy when lovers have to part
Oh come on stop pretending
LyricsTell me what’s in your heart

Chorus

Baby don’t run away
Baby don’t run away
Say that you’ll stay

Oh come on stop pretending
Tell me what’s in your heart

Chorus
Baby don’t run away 2x

Stop pretending 3x
Please baby now
Stop pretending 3x
Please baby now
Stop pretending 3x
Won’t you tell me what’s in your heart?

Please baby now... stop pretending
Don’t you know that I’ll always.... stop pretending
Please baby now... stop pretending
Won’t you tell me what’s in your heart?

Pretty words
Likes ones you’ve never heard
Oh those pretty words
What can they say?
It felt like the first summer’s day
When I heard those pretty words
Oh those pretty words
Oh those...

Pretty words
Like ones you’ve only overheard
They hang together like pearls
I can’t even say
Do you feel so much better now
Now you’ve heard those pretty words
Oh those pretty words
Oh those...

Oh those pretty words
They hang all around me now
Like a nicotine string of pearls
LyricsI’m falling inside them now
When there’s a sound you hear
And it feels like everything
And it feels like everything
And it feels like...

You’re just such a pretty one
You make everything feel undone
Waiting for those hands to come
Waiting for those hands...


. . .



(Instrumental)

If I could tell you now
Tell you how I feel
Is that so hard
When I saw you
There’s so much to leave
There’s so much to carry around

Gonna sit now
Gonna sit and watch the night fall
There’s nothing more
It takes your breath away
Its all for you
There’s so much to carry around

Chorus:
But if she’s torn
Pull another stitch from me
Give her what she needs and
Pull another stitch from me

It doesn’t even stir now
LyricsNo modestly
You just perform
You cannot burst for joy
It just takes toil
Hard work and toil

Can’t tell her how I feel
When all you’ve got is company
You’re sweating now
And pouring down your brow
There’s nothing here at all
There’s only you
There’s so much to carry around

Chorus

If I could tell you now
Tell you how I feel
And pull in con after con
Just to hear you breathe
There’s so much to leave
There’s so much to carry around

Can’t feel any better now
Let your children crawl all over me
Like I need to prove I don’t deserve you
Anyhow
There’s so much to leave
There’s so much to carry around

Chorus


. . .



Just as your eyes are closing
There was something that I meant to say
Like falling from my heart
But I don’t know how
Before you close your eyes
I don’t know how

Chorus:
I never cry for our love
I never cry
I never cry for our love
I never cry

There’s no goodbye
These hands have always lived through mine
Now everything I touch I feel I don’t know how
Before you close your eyes
I don’t know how

Chorus

LyricsI’m so cynical
It’s in my face and
It’s just the bird I caught
Leaves its taste hanging round round round

Chorus

Just as your eyes are closing
There was something that I meant to say
Like falling from my heart
But I don’t know how
Before you close your eyes
I don’t know how

Chorus

Never cry.... never cry


. . .



I’ve been watching you play
Getting caught
And when you turn your face your eyes are about
To take this heart of mine
And when you stop and stare long
They’re so blind and I can’t understand
You take this heart of mine
Hey little boy
Do you want the same thing as me
Cos I just feel
A little lonely

I’ve been wandering round again
Getting lost
It’s not safe to be near those eyes
Are enough
To take this heart of mine
And when you stop and stare long
Well I could run if there wasn’t a chance
You take this heart of mine
Hey little boy
LyricsDo you want the same thing as me
Cos I just feel
A little lonely

It’s never going anywhere
It’s just running away
Just a step outside of our love
Where’s it now
To bring it all back again

There’s a certain sound you know
Well I could run if there wasn’t a chance

You take this heart of mine
Hey little boy
Do you want the same thing as me
Cos I just feel
A little lonely

She sinks inside me
It’s so beautiful
Not hear her calling
And I would raise myself
To live up to her love
And not look down on me
Forgiving me again
And I hear her calling
Do you wanna get out of the water
Do you wanna try and carry on
It gets so low
I get so low

She sinks inside me
It’s so beautiful
Not hear her calling
But it’s like a waterfall
Falling down on me
Forgiving me again
And I know that loving

LyricsChorus:
Like feet that have never been walked on
I know that
Hands that never held no blame
Can’t you see that I guess you’re staying
Eyes that have never cried angry tears
It’s always the same
A face that never felt that shame
Well that’s my heart
It’s calling out your name

She sinks inside me
There like chemicals
I see the birds fly
And I’d disgust myself
To be free of that love
Pull myself from under the weight of it all
And I hear her, hear her

Chorus
I’ve got to give it up
I’ve got to give it up

It’s just that quality of forgiveness
Forgiveness is what I need
If I could only get out of the water
If I could only get myself clean
I’ve got to give it up
I’ve got to give it up

Like feet that have never been walked on
I know that
Hands that never held no blame
I’m running on my knees again
Eyes that have never cried angry tears
It’s always the same
A face that never felt that shame

She’s standing at the altar
Like feet never walked on
I know that she’s waiting there
Like hands never held no blame
If I could only get out of the water
No crying angry
If I could only get out of here
but I’ve gotta give it up
that felt no shame
I’ve got to give it up

(chorus ad lib)

There is a need in me darling
For you I can’t tell
The hole that’s inside me
That drains as it fills
You know these arms
How they hold you so tight
And these needs of mine
I can’t tell either way

Say what you want now make you cry
You say how you feel make you cry
Forget all the trying now make you cry
It does not matter no more
You know these arms
How they hold you so tight
These needs of mine
I can’t tell either way

Make you cry
Tell you lies
Never say goodbye
Lyrics
Hey there we go again
I’m running around
I don’t know what I’m trying to say
For I let it all out
You know these arms
How they hold you so tight
And these needs of mine
I can’t tell either way

Some nights I could crawl in beside anyone

I won’t make you cry
Tell you lies
Never say goodbye

There is a need in me darling
For you I can’t tell
The hole that’s inside me
That drains as it fills

I won’t make you cry
Tell you lies
Never say goodbye

Never say goodbye.... fade out
