Some kind of trouble

BEST LAID PLANS

Best Laid Plans
You don’t like it in the shadows.
You won’t let me shine a light.
I would wash away your troubles,
But it seems – the more that I hold on,
The more that you let go, and I know –
You better let somebody love you,
Or find yourself on your own.
Chorus:
Tell me why all the best laid plans,
Fall apart in your hands,
And my good intentions never end
The way I meant.
If we don’t talk about the future,
Then should I just follow you into dark?
Yeah – and does your silence keep you cool,
While the cracks form on my heart?
Tell me why all the best laid plans,
Fall apart in your hands,
And my good intentions never end
The way I meant
It seems to me some fine friends.
Who watched you turn your back
It seemed you only want the things,
That you can’t have.
Tell me why all the best laid plans,
Fall apart in your hands,
And my good intentions never end
The way I meant

CALLING OUT YOUR NAME

Calling Out Your Name
Well you can stand there waiting for a rainy day
Close up your heart and hide your dancing shoes away
And cut yourself with your mistakes
Leave all hope lying in a line of chalk
Everything you need is disguised in double talk
So wound yourself and let it ache
But if you’re waiting for something to bring you round
I’m calling out, I’m calling out your name
Lift your head up high
I’m calling out, I’m calling out your name
Lift your head up high
It’s all little pieces till there’s nothing left
All just debris of your former self
Just take a breath for your own sake
And if you’re watching for something to bring you round
I’m calling out, I’m calling out your name
Lift your head up high
I’m calling out, I’m calling out your name
Lift your head up high
And are you caught between the lines
Did no one see you fall behind
I’m calling out, I’m calling out your name
So lift your head up, yeah lift your head up high
Yeah lift your head up, yeah lift your head up high
I’m always by your side
Yeah lift your head up, yeah lift your head up high
I’m always by your side
Yeah lift your head up, yeah lift your head up high

DANGEROUS

Dangerous
I’ll be standing in the corner
Just watching her slaughter them
See you all go wild
I’ve been dipping in my finger
Testing out the water
See you on the other side
She is Dangerous, she is dangerous, I’m sure
And she’s all dressed up and knocking at my door
She is dangerous, she is dangerous, I know
But she’s got my heart and she’s never letting go
I’ll be hanging on your heartache
Enough rope for my sake and losing everytime
I’ll be wrapped around your finger, let the moment linger
See you on the other side
She is Dangerous, she is dangerous, I’m sure
And she’s all dressed up and knocking at my door
She is dangerous, she is dangerous, I know
But she’s got my heart and she’s never letting go
And we all get a taste for blood tonight
Coz we’ve all had a taste of love
And we all get a taste for blood tonight
For love
She is Dangerous, she is dangerous, I’m sure
And she’s all dressed up and knocking at my door
She is dangerous, she is dangerous, I know
But she’s got my heart and she’s never letting go
She is Dangerous, she is dangerous, I’m sure
And she’s all dressed up and knocking at my door
She is dangerous, she is dangerous, I know
But she’s got my heart and she’s never letting go

HEART OF GOLD

Heart Of Gold
This time her mind is made up, yeah she’s moving on
It’s not like her spirit’s crushed, It’s just she don’t belong
Maybe she thinks too much. She thinks she’s given enough
God only knows, she’s got a heart of gold
Always looking for love, but she’s beginning to think she’s cursed
On her looks she’s judged by the folks at work
All alone at night she’s cried silent tears filled with pride
One day they’ll know, she’s got a heart of gold. And she sing –
I wanna know what love is, but it seems to come with so much pain
If no one wants to show me, it seems easier just to run away
When I am gone it’s just a penny for my soul
But god, he knows, I got a heart of gold
Been coming round here, since she’s a little girl
But now the change is clear. We live in a synical world
She don’t care for fashion and fame. Those kind of people they are all the same
They don’t wanna know she’s got a heart of gold
See her footsteps in the snow

IF TIME IS ALL I HAVE

If Time Is All I Have
When you wake up
Turn the radio on
Now hear this simple song
That I made up
That I made up for you
When you’re driving
Turn the radio up
Cause I can’t sing loud enough
All these days
To get my message through
If time is all I had,
I’d waste it all on you.
Each day I’ll turn it back.
It’s what the broken hearted-do.
I’m tired of talking to an empty space.
Of silences keeping me awake.
When you marry and you look around
I’ll be somewhere in that crowd,
Torn up that it isn’t me.
When you’re older and the memories fade,
I know I’ll still feel the same, yeah
For as long as I live.
And if time is all I had,
I’d waste it all on you.
Each day I’ll turn it back.
It’s what the broken hearted-do.
I’m tired of talking to an empty space.
Of silences keeping me awake.
Won’t you same my name one time
Please, just say my name.
If time is all I had,
I’d waste it all on you.
Each day I’ll turn it back.
It’s what the broken hearted-do.
I’m tired of talking to an empty space.
Of silences keeping me awake.
If time is all I had,
I’d waste it all on you.
Each day I’ll turn it back.
It’s what the broken hearted-do.
I’m tired of talking to an empty space.
Of silences keeping me awake.
Won’t you same my name
When the song is over?

I’LL BE YOUR MAN

I’ll Be Your Man
Too many voices
Too many noises
Invisible wires keeping us apart
So many choices
Some disappointments
And they only steal me away from you
Climb into our private bubble
Let’s get into all kinds of trouble
Slide over here
Let your hands feel the way
There’s no better method to communicate
Girl stop your talking
Words just get in the way
I’ll be your man
So baby some over
From the end of the sofa
I’ll be your man
So many faces
Staring at their shoelaces
When all anyone wants is to be seen
So tonight let’s be nonest
We all want to be wanted
and darling you got me wanting you
everything that I’m trying to say
just sounds like a worn out cliche
What are we all looking for?
Someone we just can’t ignore?
It’s real love dripping from our hearts
You’ve got me tripping
What are we all looking for?

INTO THE DARK (bonus)

Into The Dark
Love is madness that’s quick to burn,
And lying in the embers is where we are,
And if my promise is unreturned,
Before the day is over, I will depart.
If I could choose, I’d have to stay,
But I gave my heart to you and it’s yours to break.
Before my fears tear us apart,
Won’t you follow me into the dark.
Love is blindness I cannot see,
Underneath our roots are tangled and buried deep,
When the leaves have fallen from the trees,
Do we grow together entirely?
If I could choose, I’d have to stay,
But I gave my heart to you and it’s yours to break.
Before my fears tear us apart,
Won’t you follow me into the dark.

NO TEARS

No Tears

Don’t I know it
Nobody has to say
I’ve been lucky
Guess I was born that way
I thank my father
His absence has made me strong
And I love my mother
But she had troubles with God
No tears
For the life that you led
You had angels in your head
Did you hear them singing in the end?
All the things that do seem
All the things that could have been
Well I’ve been everything I wanna be
So no tears, no tears for me
Yeah I’ve bathed in sunshine
But cherished the fading light
And I heard my heartbeat falter
On a winters night
I loved a woman
But she didn’t hear my prayers
So lord, oh lord, I’m yours
And no tears
For the life that you led
You had angels in your head
Did you hear them singing in the end?
All the things that do seem
All the things that could have been
Well I’ve been everything I wanna be
So no tears, no tears
Because someone somewhere’s going home tonight
Try to understand the sacrifice
So save your tears for those left behind
For the life that you led
You had angels in your head
Did you hear them singing the end?
All the things that do seem
All the things that could have been
Well I’ve been everything I wanna be
So no tears
No tears
No tears for me

SO FAR GONE

So Far Gone
Tell me the wars you’re fighting
Behind the smile you’re hiding
All of the things I know you want to say
We tried our best to find us
But there are no lights to guide us
I can’t sleep beside a stranger now
And piece by piece we fall apart
With every beat slows down my heart
Chorus:
So I’ll just say what you won’t say
And I’ll take the blame if it’s for your sake
No turning back on what you can’t say
We’re So far gone
Yeah, we’re so far gone
I’ve tried hard to remember
This prison cell used to be a shelter
Now we’re just looking for the best way out
And I can’t fight you anymore
You’re already one foot out the door
Chorus:
So I’ll just say what you won’t say
And I’ll take the blame if it’s for your sake
No turning back on what you can’t say
We’re So far gone,
Yeah we’re so far gone
And this is the face of letting go
And these are the things we already know
So I’ll just say what you won’t say
And I’ll take the blame if it’s for your sake
No turning back on what you can’t say
So I’ll just say what you won’t say
And I’ll take the blame if it’s for your sake
No turning back on what you can’t say
So far gone,
Yeah we’re so far gone
Yeah we’re so far gone
So I’ll just what you won’t say

STAY THE NIGHT

Stay The Night
Hey, It’s seventy-two degrees, Zero chance of rain, It’s been a perfect day
We’re all spinning on our heels, so far away from real in Californ-I-A
We watched the sunset from my car, We all took it in
By the time that it was dark, You and me had something
And if this is what we’ve got, then what we’ve got is gold
We’re shining bright, I want you, I want you to know
The morning’s on it’s way, Our friends all say goodbye
There’s nowhere else to go, I hope that you’ll stay the night
We’ve been singing Billie Jean, Mixing Vodka with caffeine
We’ve got strangers stopping by
And though you’re out of tune, girl you blow my mind you do
And all I’ll say is I don’t want to say goodnight
If there’s no quiet corner to get to know each other
Then there’s no hurry I’m a patient man, as you’ll discover
Cos if this is what we’ve got, then what we’ve got is gold
We’re shining bright, I want you, I want you to know
The morning’s on it’s way, Our friends all say goodbye
There’s nowhere else to go, I hope that you’ll stay the night
Just like the song on my radio said
We’ll share the shelter of my single bed
But it’s a different tune that’s stuck in my head… and it goes:
If this is what we’ve got, then what we’ve got is gold
We’re shining bright, I want you, I want you to know
The morning’s on it’s way, Our friends all say goodbye
There’s nowhere else to go, I hope that you’ll stay the night
If this is what we’ve got, then what we’ve got is gold
We’re shining bright, I want you, I want you to know
The morning’s on it’s way, Our friends all say goodbye
There’s nowhere else to go, I hope that you’ll stay the night

SUPERSTAR

Superstar
There’s an empty space in the chair tonight
Cause he don’t feel right
There are storm clouds brewing at the back of his mind
As he steps outside
He will be twenty in a week but he’s old for his years
He’s had many of those to confront his own fears
Cause his father’s not the man he’d like to grow up to be
And his mother isn’t growing old gracefully
He said, « Times like these, I don’t want to be a superstar,
Cause Reality TV killed them all in America
Though the sun always shines in the magazines
Tonight can we be free to be who we really are? »
There’s an empty space between the lines tonight
And it burns so bright
And the angry silence that he throws on the floor
Says he don’t care anymore
He had money for the truth, but love’s a lot more
The answers not the one he was looking for
And his father’s not the man he’d like to grow up to be
And his mother is his mother reluctantly

THERE SHE GOES AGAIN (bonus)

There she goes again
When she holds on to me
It’s clear to see,
It’s difficult.
(Didn’t I know it)
First time I’ve chosen to open up,
Not broken up
It’s typical.
(Didn’t I know it)
For all the reasons I’ve told myself
“Find something else”
She’s serious
(Didn’t I know it)
All the heartfelt words we found
I’m coming ‘round
They’re meaningless
(Didn’t I know it)
Wo-oah
(Chorus)
She’s taken what she wants
But she wants everything
There she goes, there she goes
Well there she goes again
Knows how to turn it on
Yeah but not for long
It’s physical, physical
Then it don’t mean a thing
I know better than to think
She’s standing still
Dressed to kill
Well there she goes again
How many hearts that she thrown aside?
So finding mine
Should be no surprise
(Didn’t I know it)
I needed her like she knew I would
And it hurt so good
She’s satisfied
(Didn’t I know it)
It means nothing (to hold our kiss??)
‘Cause she’s done this
A thousand times
Wo-oah
(Chorus)
I know better than to think
She’s standing still
Just to thrill
Well there she goes again
Wo-oah
Wo-oah
There she goes again
There she goes again
Didn’t I know
(Chorus)
I know better than to think
She’s standing still
Just to thrill
Didn’t I know
(Chorus)
I know better than to think
She’s standing still
Just to thrill
Well there she goes again.

THESE ARE THE WORDS

These Are The Words
Tender was my lover from the suburbs of town
We were sweethearts from college, she was always around
We were good for each other but some things they just don’t work out
There were tears in my eyes when she walked away
We had plans to get married someday
But the promises were broken before they were even made
Now I’m dancing with a broken heart
Ain’t no doctor who can make it start
Singing « Theres are the words that I’m never gonna say again »
Cause I’ve given till I’ve given up
One more casualty of easy love
And these are the words that i’m never gonna say again
Tender was my lover, god I miss her embrace
And I wonder who it is puts a smile on her face
I recall the way she feels oh and I recall the way she tastes
If I could hold her now then all that I’d see’d
Remind me of childhood memories
She was the first day of summer, yeah that girl that girl’s for me
These are the words that I say to your picture
These are the words that I say in a dream
These are the words that I wish I’d said to you
When you were standing here next to me

THIS LOVE AGAIN ( bonus)

This love again
Haven’t you looked around
You could have anyone.
So why would you look at me,
And feel any sympathy,
When all the world can see,
You’re breaking me gently?
Cause this love – I’ve been dying for this love – Again.
Oh, I missed love – I’ve been dying for this love – Again.
Don’t cut me, just to hear me screaming your name,
there’s a million ways I can feel less pain,
so why oh why is it this love that I’ve been dying for?
So lay me down again
Watch what you’ve broken mend
Don’t sharpen your tongue my dear
Cause your words are killing me
And making my heart burst
Is more than my blood is worth.
chorus
Yeah this love – I’ve been dying for this love – Again.
Oh, I missed love – I’ve been dying for this love – Again.
Don’t cut me, just to hear me screaming your name,
there’s a million ways I can feel less pain,
so why oh why is it this love that I’ve been dying for ? …
