BRIGHT SIDE

i saw you last night when i was asleep
cause that's the only time you come and visit me
you were wearing the same old shirt
i couldn't help but smile even though it hurt

it was a violent ride
running a fine line
in the absence of light
so i lied
to make myself learn to fight
to get back, back to the bright side

it wasn't hard to understand
we could still speak our own language
it was like the native tongue
of a country i didn't know i was from

and as i died
staring at the tail lights
watching you leave for the last time
i lied
to make myself learn to fight
to get back, back to the bright side

could have stood up straight but you caved
easier not to change
yeah you made me laugh
i will chase that
saw me in my new body

and as i died
staring at the tail lights
watching you leave for the last time
i lied
to make myself learn to fight
to get back, back to the bright side

 

PLEASE (SAY YOU NEVER WILL)   

aww yeah
there's nothing wrong with making making me wait
why not?
i'll take the bait
all day
but not forever though i'm not afraid
to wait ... i'll wait
dangling, lingering like the words on your tongue
suffering just a little when it's gone
when it's gone
oh oh

please
when you gonna let me?
when you gonna let me?
aww yeah
say you never will
say you never will...

aww yeah
don't complain about how i'm making you wait
i know you'll take the bait
control
it's what you had but it doesn't last you know
i'm not
gonna let it go
dangling, lingering like the words on your tongue
suffering just a little when it's gone
when it's gone
oh oh

please...

 

THE LAST TIME

this isn't permanent, no
my red lipstick perfectly set
the temperature of your breath
let's try to make it go slow
all the brilliant colors at dusk
burning heat, undying lust

i didn't know it was the last time we'd talk
if i had known i never would have stopped
it was the last time
it was the last time for now

conversation was mundane
i think we're not supposed to know
we couldn't comprehend the letting go
there is nothing you could have said
that could rise to meet the power of
the sum of you and your love

i'm free don't grieve for me
i'm free...

FREE   -   lyrics by John Culjak

while the others were flying
we traveled by sea
and you saw us crossing but never saw me
it's taken you so long to find me
but finally
i see you've fallen so far behind me
but in the end, we will never be

cause when the weather is drying
the future comes through
tomorrow is far when i imagine with you
i don't need you
we really can't be
the past it blinded, but now i see

when the others are calling
rise up to the moon
our time is forever but now it's something new
it's taken you so long to find me
but finally
i see you've fallen so far behind me
but in the end, we will never be

cause when the weather is drying
the future comes through
tomorrow is far when i imagine with you
i don't need you
we really can't be
the past it blinded, but now i see

cause when the weather is drying
the future comes through
tomorrow is far when i imagine with you
i don't need you
we really can't be
the past it blinded, but now we're free

 

SHINY

tonight i'm shiny
the line is long behind me
and i can see you at the end
while i am waving
i'm already misbehaving
and it's starting to sink in

i've waited years...
now i know i'm here
i'm not saying goodbye
cause i won't be far away

i'll be forgiven
now's the time for livin
and I'm finally here inside
behind the lights
i feel a deep dance revival
and Mr. Murphy

i've waited years...
now i know i'm here
i'm not saying goodbye
cause i won't be far away

yeah it's too late...
i can call home tomorrow

 

SWIMMING

swimming in the city
friendly to the fishes
some of them surround me
they make me feel pretty
some they swim away
as i start to chase
all the other fishes swim away
maybe i don't want to play

float away
here to stay

i'll be in the ocean
doin me
obsessed with the notion
it's more than just a dream
and if there is a chase
i'll be swimming free
and all the fishes they can come for me
maybe i don't wanna play

float away
here to stay

 

SOBER FOR THE WEEKEND

i'd like to move in on you
can't get outside of myself
you're a little less impressive
my sense of humor is running dry
i look around the room
the haze is settling in
everyones got blank expressions
when i get...

sober for the weekend
alone in my own bed
and my hands have stopped shaking
no words that i regret
nothing keeps me from sleeping
i can hear myself again
i can hear myself again
i never find myself at the bottom of a bottle
i never find myself at the bottom of a bottle

are you still having fun?
or did i start to get boring?
it's getting hard to hear you
i'm not feeling like myself today
i look around the room
the haze is settling in
everyones got blank expressions
when i get...

sober for the weekend...
