Over her face her hair is blown / But she’s still looking from the maze that she makes her own / And purposely her grace was overgrown
Ice begins to thaw / In the glass from where she chews upon her straw / That look could only mean she wanted more / The pilot in her mind holds no control
She reads like a book of prose / Removing stockings from her feet to reveal her toes / By being indiscreet made her presence known / A fire burns up inside and I choke
And she’s just like a picture when I close my eyes / Those sultry lips I’ve memorised / This vixen doesn’t advertise / Addiction with no compromise, I’m never satisfied / Now I know she won’t let go
Sink and then inhale / As I gaze upon her skin, so young and pale / The air is getting thin where she left her trail
She bleeds No. 5 Chanel / The cigarette between her teeth summons up a spell / I want to be your Heathcliff, so be my belle / I spiral and I find myself in ropes
And she’s still like that picture when I close my eyes / Those sultry lips now hypnotise / Does it mean that I’m in love? / Does it mean that I’m in love? / This vixen doesn’t advertise, addiction I now recognise / Does it mean that I’m in love? / Does it mean that I’m in love?
You’re not safe here my love / You’re not safe here my love / We party all night / But that doesn’t mean you’re part of my life / You’re not safe here my love
When you speak, I hear guns / When you speak, I hear guns / I say what I like / But you look at me like somebody died / When you speak, I hear guns
And I’ve seen the things you visualise / So I’ll be there when you close your eyes / But I’m down and I’m out this time
We party all night / But that doesn’t mean you’re part of my life / You’re not safe here my love
This time, this time, this time…
BACK FROM THE DEAD
I fall apart / I want you to know that / There's space for you here / I know you're a cool cat / Sometimes I'm shy / Sometime I go too far / I've been first on the floor / While you were the last at the bar.
Back from the dead / I'm back with the broken / When I'm spilling my heart / I spit the unspoken
Better than most from what I remember / As cold as the clay in darkest December / Better than failings and better than front / Better than no one / Is that want you want? / Is that, what you want?
Meet me at the end / I'll be there with a head rush / Pulled myself up / Just to escape the crush / Or just to escape / Or just to escape / I'm out the back head to head with the heartless / Standing alone staring up at the cold
Better than someone the way I remember / Burnt at the stake they pissed on the embers / A phantom, a shadow, a ghost that could haunt / Better than no one is that what you want?
Smoking, standing in the rain / I can feel myself inflamed by the things that you do / Abandoned I became / I play the game of constant sorrow and I make up the rules
I wish that we could be friends / But I know you let me down / She said we could just pretend / Somehow I need to tell you something / I told you before and I’ll tell you again / Just leave me alone, Danielle
Now the ties are paper thin / Lilywhite lies that grow within, make their debut / Miles apart and reaching / You could break hearts that don’t need teaching, but sometimes they do
And you’ve been preying for a long time / Trying to make friends out of enemies / If you still want to say something / Put it in a letter and leave it for me / You want it, you got it, you said you never meant it / And now you think you can cover up my memories
Smoking, standing in the rain / Abandoned I became / Now the ties are paper thin / Miles apart and reaching
OUT ON THE BOXES
Hold me up to the light so you know that I'm real / I've been out on the frontline, I've been chasing the deal / I've been wasted by numbers, I've been hardened by thoughts / Now I'm breaking the chain of losing more than I've got
Standing down at the white sands with a bag in my hand / Said I'll remember this feeling through my feet where I stand / You'll get nothing for losing, you'll get nothing for free / I'll explain when you're older than me.
Take my time? No I don't / Change your mind? No I won't / Pour your heart out and you'll be my favourite then / You'll be my favourite then
I started out on the boxes, ended up on the beach / Where religious folk come to see there's no need to preach / Now there's a boy in the corner with a lot on his mind / A glass in his hand and an eye on the time / Counting seconds and minutes, watched them turn in to days / While the man with the sad eyes sat there turning away / When I'm talking to tell you that it's good to be free / There'll be nothing to keep you from me
