Lyrics


1. BREATHE ON ME

Breathe on me (x8)

A stranger's face that I have never seen
But on photographs - But on tv screens
Your songs of romance ringing in my ear
You are all I see - You are all I hear
Your eyes met mine
Just one split second and I knew tonight
Yes you can be my solitary man
I'll be your girl named Joy
Yes I'll be all you need and more

[Chorus]
Breathe on me - Breathe on me
Light my way - Bring me back to life
Breathe on me - Breathe on me
Fill me up - Make me feel alive
My heart is black - My soul is bleeding
Give me something to believe in
Breathe on me
Tonight

Breathe on me (x4)

Trying to stay cool as I'm approaching you
Hitching up my skirt - As I start to flirt
My nervous is breathing when I'm close to you
I can't help but being - Breathless over you
Who needs the stars
You are my only star tonight
Who needs the moon
When you are my loverman
Until the bitter end
I'll do all I can and more

[Chorus]

And call me a wild rose (x3)

[Chorus]




2. COLLARS AND SUITS

Trying so hard to get by
To be the next big thing alive
But all the same
Every color I see - A pale shade of grey
Trying so hard and they say
You're just a signature away
Just one handshake
Well here's to collars and suits
And things that they say

[Pre-Chorus]
Once more it's your chance - Just take it
Once more - Don't be so blind
For all I care you fake it
It's your chance to shine

[Chorus]
And it's all
All that I dream of
There's nothing I want more
There's nothing I would trade it for
All I dream of
It's all I really want
There's nothing I want more
There's nothing else
It's my problem if I can't take it

Why would we change our own game?
These are the rules by which we play
I've heard it all before
Try to make up your mind
And make up your face
I don't believe in a way
To skip a chapter and be great
There's no such thing
Where all traumas and flaws are gently erased

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

Here's to the collars and suits
And the things they say
You've got bring something better to the
Table to tempt me
Here's to the collars and suits
And the things they say
Better put your money where your mouth is

[Chorus]

(x3)
My mistake if I'm not taking it
All at stake if I'm not making it

My mistake if I'm not taking it
My problem if I can't take it




3. ARE YOU DONE WITH ME (NEW SINGLE MIX)

This city drinks and roars
Each word so meaningless
Each word - Especially yours
Echoes inside my head

[Pre-Chorus]
Why can't you see?
I won't let you get your way
Let you get the best of me
I just need to know

Are you done with me?

[Chorus]
So are you done with me?
And if you are - Won't you just let me be?
I try to understand your reasons for leaving
I cannot believe it

This city drinks and screams
This night will never end
This city made of dreams
My dreams have turned to sand

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

So are you done with me?
Are you honestly?
Did you realize that I can't be all you need?
Are you done with me?
Are you honestly?
If love is gone then I am done again

[Chorus]

This city drinks and roars




4. SUCH A SHAME (TALK TALK COVER)

Such a shame
To believe in escape
A life on every face
But that's a change
Until I'm finally left with an '8'
Tell me to relax or I'll just stare
Maybe I don't know if I should change
A feeling that we share

[Chorus]
It's a shame - Such a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame - Such a shame
Number me in haste - Such a shame
This eagerness to change

It's a shame

The dice decide my fate
That's a shame - That's a shame
In these trembling hands my faith
Tells me to react - Well I don't care
Maybe it's unkind if I should change
A feeling that we share

[Chorus]

Such a shame
Number me with rage
Such a shame
Write across my name

[Chorus]

Such a shame (x2)




5. CORDELL (THE CRANBERRIES COVER)

Though once you ruled my mind
I thought you'd always be there
And I'll always hold on to your face
But everything changes in time
And the answers are not always fair
And I hope you've gone to a better place

Cordell - Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell - Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I know that you've gone to a better place

Cordell (x7)

Your lover and baby will cry
But your presence will always remain
Is this how it was meant to be?
You meant something more to me
That what many people will see
And to hell with the endless dream

Cordell - Time will tell
They say that you've passed away
And I hope you've gone to a better place
Time will tell - Time will tell
We all will depart and decay
And we all will return to a better place

Cordell (x7)

Nana - Nana - Nana - Nana ...




6. SMALLTOWN BOY (BRONSKI BEAT COVER)

Run away - Turn away - Run away - Turn away - Run away

You leave in the morning
With everything you own
In a little black case
Alone on a platform
The wind and the rain
On a sad and lonely face

Run away - Turn away - Run away - Turn away - Run away (x2)

Pushed around and kicked around
Always a lonely boy
But you never cried to them
Just to your soul
No - You never cried to them
Just to your soul

Run away - Turn away - Run away - Turn away - Run away (x2)

Cry - Boy - Cry - Boy - Cry (x2)

Run away - Turn away - Run away - Turn away - Run away (x5)




7. WE ARE THE OTHERS (NEW BALLAD VERSION)

I'm walking with Sophie tonight
She lives in the air that I breathe
I can't get it out of my mind
How you were left to bleed
Was it how you dressed?
Or how you act?
I can't believe
How they could act so violently?
Without regret
Well - We will not forget

[Chorus]
We are the others
We are the cast-outs
We're the outsiders
But you can't hide us
We are the others
Black eyed and battered
You're not out there on your own
If you feel mistreated
Torn and cheated
You are not alone
We are the others

As simple as air in your lungs
As simple as words on your lips
And no one should take that away
No one should argue this
Now with our heads up high
We'll carry on
And carry out
That we won't let them get us down
Or wear us out
'Cause we are not alone

[Chorus]

Normal is not the norm
It's just a uniform
We are the others
Forget about the norm
We're the outsiders
Take off your uniform
We are the others
We are all beautiful

[Chorus]

We are the others (x2)




8. MOTHER MACHINE (LIVE)

Incomplete - Cast in the concrete
Walk the city streets
Granite sky
My machine built the factories
Feeds the worker bees
Get in line

[Chorus]
Round and round and round
The wheels come down
Dreaming of the steam
The pounding sounds
Round and round and round
The wheels come down
Won't you electrify my soul?
Intensify it all

Little girl in a concrete world
Artificial hurt
In your eyes
You won't see any living trees
Any flower fields in my time

[Chorus]

I like the plastic people paper world
The silver moon - The iron sun
I'll fold you paper flowers little girl
For you'll never see a real one

[Chorus]




9. GET THE DEVIL OUT OF ME (LIVE)

I don't know what to feel
I don't know what to say
Oh I don't know what to do
What makes me treat you this way
Oh I get numb in my bones
Oh I get numb in my heart
Why don't you leave me alone?
Before I tear you apart

[Chorus]
I'm no Jesus Christ
I'm the one mistake
That you love to hate
I apologize
It's your destiny
To get the devil out of me

I don't know what to do
It always ends the same way
Though I have been here before
I know the rules to this game
And though I try not to lose it
In the end I will fall
Better to have you in tears
Than not to have you at all

I'm no Jesus Christ
I'm the one mistake
That you love to hate

[Chorus]

If you think I'm hard to handle
Don't give up so easily
I just need a good example
To be what I used to be

Get the devil out of me

[Chorus]




10. MILK AND HONEY (LIVE)

The sun was golden flamed
The air was sweet like honey
The grass was soft we made
A pledge to keep on running
The clouds all shied away
The air was warm and damp
Oh On this golden day
You ripped my heart away

It was the dawn of May
A lonely blackbird singing
Now the same melody
Brings back the pain

[Chorus]
Bring back the pain
You'll get it - Regret it
Take my advice
Bring back the pain
You'll get it - Regret is
If you are wise
As long as you are getting older
Always look over your shoulder twice

The moon was silver-lined
The air was sweet like honey
We've said our last goodbyes
Now what are we becoming?
Outside the blackbirds sing
But you keep down the blinds
'Cause each time you kiss her lips
They'll sing my lullaby

[Chorus]

Always look twice

Now it's so long ago
Now we are sober and cold
There's no way to return
We've got to let our bridges
Got to let our bridges burn

Bring back the pain
You'll get it - Regret it
Take my advice
Bring back the pain
You'll get it - Regret is
If you are wise

You'll get it - Regret it
Play with my heart
Bring back the pain
You'll get it - Regret it
Tear it apart

As long as you are getting older
Always look over your shoulder
Always look over your shoulder twice




11. INVIDIA (LIVE)

My achievements seem so humble
While you’re making wine from water
While my hands work the cold soil
All you touch turns into gold
And I don’t want to be like you

[Chorus ] (x2)
I don’t want to be like you
Seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can’t I erase you from my mind?

All the heroes in the gutter
Finally get their ever after
As they lay their final glance
Upon your ever shining armor
And I don’t want to be like you

[Chorus ] (x2)

Looking from a distance
The difference seems so small
Has the grass been greener
On the other side at all?

[Chorus ] (x2)




12. ELECTRICITY (LIVE)

I can't forget the faces
I can't forget the sounds
I can't forget - Can't get the fever down
I guess imagination
It makes it come around
Whenever lightning strikes and thunder sounds

We shared nothing
But storm - But wind
One rain swept moment
Stuck within

[Chorus]
Day by day
I walk the distance alone
Walk the distance alone
Day by day
I fight the fever alone
Fight the fever alone

I can't forget the shaking
Your hands over my own
Both hot with fever to our very bones
I do regret the feeling
That we will never know
What might have happened had we not let go

[Chorus]

I can't forget the faces
I can't forget the sounds

[Chorus] (x2)




13. NOT ENOUGH (LIVE)

Judgement is easy
You pick a side and a comfortable lie
Heavy the burden
When every victim is self-defined

[Pre-Chorus]
Try to understand
It's harder to apologize
When all committed crimes
They're just in our minds

[Chorus}
It's not enough
How hard I try
It's not enough
To clear my mind
It's not enough
I'm the jury - I'm the judge
And I committed all the crimes
How hard I try
It's not enough

I walked away and left you bleeding
As I kicked the mud off my feet
I lay on the ground and watched you leaving
A heart fights for every beat

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

11. APRIL RAIN (VIDEOCLIP)

How does it feel when all you’re counting on
Is scatterbrain?
Every wind that you have sailed upon
A hurricane
Every summer you have seen was filled
With April rain
It doesn’t get easy - Don’t you know?

[Chorus]
Fortune smiles on you
When you’re not watching
Dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
When you’re not watching
Create your own faith

Count your blessings and prepare to change
Your point of view
All the days you spent waiting
Won’t come back to you
Take off the glasses that have shaded your world
Black and grey
Does it get easy? - Don’t you know?

[Chorus]

It keeps raining
‘Cause we are blind
It keeps raining
‘Cause we are tired
It keeps raining
‘Cause we are blind
To Fortunes’ kindness

It keeps raining
‘Cause we are blind
It keeps raining
‘Cause we are tired

[Chorus]
