skeletons

there’s so little left of you
that how can i refuse
to be your skeleton
is all that i can do
and if we forget all our ways
all the habit from our days
what reason resonates?
to never grow up never grow old never be found never be solved
never be seen never be known
like skeletons
crumble if we move
what is going to bring us down tonight?
leave us limping all along and out of sight?
like skeletons
we’ll crumble if we move

give me tonight

sometimes when you’re like this i want no part
like every start you make’s a false start
that’s holding you back in the past
if you give me an answer that i can hold on to
something that we can belong to
will you make it last?
give me tonight
say that you might
i’ll make it all right
‘cause now your indifference has grown
i don’t want to follow your shadow home
your whole world is an early night
so wont you do something with me tonight
under this pretty sky

akula

so soon does every word that you say
become the breath of my day
that I breathe like a ghost
and without a daytime to live
with the infrequence you give
i’m like noise in the street
‘cause we were a kind of fractured parade
with all the noise and the fray
but no definite way
you once said i was something to keep
that i was a mess that looked neat
now i’m not even that
i broke apart because
there was no place to start with
with you
but it’s alright
cause it’s all wrong
so you won’t have
to stay that long
with what we had
how could you miss
what you need
is none of this

moonlight

we didn’t have very long
while we chased down the sunlight
cornered and careless
corrupted
caught by the sun
well, wasn’t it fun
i guess that i was not the one
that you needed
now that the days pass like hours
and they come and they go just like nobody knows
i’m kicking and spinning in air
and getting nowhere
nowhere near the somewhere where you’re there
so now i have lost patience
did you ever know
just how hard i tried
to give you sunshine
but all i gave to you
was moonlight
so stay well
cause as far as i know
you’ll be no-one i know
for as long as i know and i know
that you’ll never care
because no-one ever cared
for free

i don't keep a record

shadows moving children coupling
and i was stranded by myself
and i wanted to be saved
and in the roughest way
in a backyard at a party
leaving last or first or just stayed at home
where a sea of eyes was left behind
and a sea of hands couldn't reach
and that's why i don't
i don't keep a record
because there's too much looking back as it is
and if i do it on occasion
well then the saddest thing's not what you felt
but just how much you felt it
backward leaning lonely passion
and a drink once more in my hand
and a drink is all it takes
to forget my age
and that's why i don't
i don't keep a record
because there's too much looking back as it is
and if i do it on occasion
well then the saddest thing's not what you felt
but just how much you felt it
and once you go back it's on top of you
and then that's you again

in no good way

listen to me like you never have
listen to me tonight
in no good way has our time been spent
like our presence was never meant
in no good way has our time been spent
we drink like we don’t pay rent
this is not something that we can win
cause it’s not worth anything
so with me as with you
we have nothing to do
while we wait for tomorrow’s arms

find you lost

find you somewhere at the end of the night coat for a pillow head like a kite
i only care for a single moment
you’re lying like sleep never comes to you right head in you hands legs out tight
under still burning light
you say “wicked summer wicked sun there’s no escape from these long days
these melting hours”
well i don’t want to see you and i don’t need a fight
and nobody needs another drink tonight
what’s good enough for you
is not good enough for me
‘cause i don’t want to find you lost
i gon’t want to find you found
i don’t want to find you any time or any place around
not even on a better day
or even in some other way
cause every time i find you lost i have to find you on your way
that’s when i hope I might
yeah i hope i might
just lose you tonight

reasons are all i have left

there was a time when we both were able
to justify complete wastes of time
and throw ourselves like rubbish out into the night
now i have found these reasons for leaving
they come to me like lights in the sky
and they will not fade till i’m out of your sight
you say i have no reason for leaving you say i have nowhere to go
you say i have not one good reason but reasons are all that i know
there’s not one thing that i will be taking
there’s nothing that i want to remind
i’ll probably even run just to make up some time
i’ve got to find a place i can go where
time is not something that i need
i just want my place in that starry night
you say i have no reason for leaving you say i have nowhere to go
you say i have not one good reason that its all a waste of your time
what if i want to see old dreams come around?
if i want to see new night-times come down?
my best chances lie with me finding
my place in that starry night

just say i’m right

tonight while the edges of our room here fail in light
i try to take the best of you and make it mine
but i just break you like a memory in time
i don’t want to lose you
so just say i’m right
do doo doo
tonight while the edges of our room here fail in light
i try to take the best of you
yeah i’ll give you the time if you need it tonight
you’re always losing to the edge of the night
you gotta slow down
yeah i’m right beside you now
by the time i wake you’ll be no-one i know
just a see through shadow at the bedroom window
in this light no way not a chance that i’ll know
yeah i’m right beside you now
just say i’m right

something new

as long as we are just the two and nothing changes nothing moves
we will become two people time has undone
and so it quietly is true
you have this need for something new
no mystery shows a stupid face to this truth
and when i see you move under certain light
lost in visions of us both in the night
its not so easy just to see you away
when you constitute the breath of my day
oh to give you something new
stay tonight silently
half awake half asleep
no-one knows no-one’s here
so stay with me quietly
stay tonight
