VERSE
I may be talking out of line
But it seems like things with you ain’t fine
It looks like you’re sad
That’s really just too bad

I’ll lend you my ear
If you feel the need to shed a tear
Let me be kind
Unburden yourself I don’t mind

CHORUS
We could be
So happy
If only
You’d see me

VERSE
If only I was in your sphere
It’s so hard to give you help from here
I’m swimming around
A goldfish in a jar

Your heart is breaking, sad but true
But there’s nothing more that i can do
My offer is moot
Nonentity is absolute

CHORUS
We could be
So happy
If only
You’d see me x 2

Rest of My Days

When I think back to the days
When you took my heart away
I was such a silly thing
Playing silly little games
Though my friends tried to tell me
You were just no good for me
I didn’t pay no attention
Cause my heart wanted to play

Never dreamed I’d spend the rest of my days
Thinking ‘bout you and me

I miss the sweetness of your kiss
I can’t help but reminisce
Of the days and nights we were young alive and free
I miss the sweetness of your kiss
I can’t help but reminisce
Can we somehow, just somehow, get it back and live again

All attempts at being someone
I thought you wanted me to be
Didn’t really matter or make a difference it seems
Maybe if I’d realised early
That the only thing amiss
Was the woman you could have loved
But I was happy to dismiss

Never dreamed I’d spend the rest of my days
Thinking ‘bout you and me
A bit of hindsight and the rest of my days
Wondering what might have been

Birds Still Fly

Just a little sadder each and every year
I can’t quite put my finger on it
Your love, it helps to keep me alive
But still, something’s missing inside

Never been really clear
Never been that way
Never felt completely at ease
Keeping demons at bay

It seems not long ago I was merely a child
Naively dreaming ff all the pleasures of adult life

Never been really clear
Never been that way
Never felt completely at ease
Keeping demons at bay

While the sun still shines
Birds still fly
I guess I don’t need a reason why

Never been really clear
Never been that way
Never felt completely at ease
Keeping demons at bay

While the sun still shines
Birds still fly
I guess I don’t need a reason why

A Little Dissonance

A little dissonance feels good
Makes me feel comfortable
It makes me go all a tingle
In a way that I wish you could

When the bass keeps pounding my brain
Then the drums give me more of the same
And I like it
Feel that rhythm
Man I love it
I’m in heaven

A simple melody hits me
In all the places that I never knew
Something about the music gets to me
In a way I wish the song was you

When the bass keeps pounding my brain
Then the drums give me more of the same
And I like it
Feel that rhythm
Man I love it
I’m in heaven

Ja, ich liebe
Ja, ich liebe

And I like it
Feel that rhythm
Man I love it
I’m in heaven

Bring it down now, take it down now.

That’s The Way It Used To Be

Evergreen, like the leaves on the trees in the summertime
Crystal clear like the moon and the stars of the evening sky
Feel the pull of the waves on the turn of the morning tide
No regrets, surely that must of all be the biggest lie!

That’s the way it used to be
Little bit by little by I’ve gleaned
That’s the way it used to be
Nothing is ever quite as it seems

Never cared, well not much just a bit, you know how it is
People come, people go, people stay, ignorance is bliss
Two a day, was his way, see a doctor if pain persists
It’s a shock, when it finally comes, ceases and desists

That’s the way it used to be
Little bit by little by I’ve gleaned
That’s the way it used to be
Nothing is ever quite as it seems

At the time, well it was what it was, appearances deceive
Present day, and it is what it is, not how I perceived

That’s the way it used to be
Little bit by little by I’ve gleaned
That’s the way it used to be
Nothing is ever quite as it seems

All that’s changed, is the bedrock of truth that I once believed, the girl, the foundation of me, remains crumbled and aggrieved, unresolved, never to be

That’s the way that’s the way that’s the way that’s the way that’s the way that’s the way

Felt So Good

First you told me, the biggest mistake that you made, was to let me go
That the time spent without me was meaningless and, you’d hit an all time low
When you whispered “if I could just turn back the clock”, but that was years ago

But it’s my wishful thinking lately that you’d beg at my feet for mercy

Ahhh, but it felt so good
Even I can’t deny that baby
Ooooh, yeah, it felt so good
But there’s no way alive I would ever go back

See it’s funny; even though I snuffed out the flame on our crippling affair
Unfortunately, I’ll never know what you may have gone through, in your hour of despair
All I wanted was some suffering, just some little sign that you might have cared.

But it’s my wishful thinking lately that you’d crawl on your knees for clemency
But it’s my wishful thinking lately that you’d beg at my feet for mercy

Ahhh, but it felt so good
Even I can’t deny that baby
Ooooh, yeah, it felt so good
But there’s no way alive I would ever go back

Cello solo of much regret, sadness and forgiving……

The Weather

Never could explain why much in life is do or die
Still don’t understand how true love slipped through my hands
Pondering mistakes of mine really is a waste of time
Forgive my indulgence, intelligent but not much sense

I get so sad
Sad sad sad about the weather
I get so mad
Mad mad mad about it all
Yes I’ve had
Just about enough of your crap see you later
Now I’m glad
Glad glad glad you are gone

Sometimes I get caught in mourning for what might have been
Hoping for integrity waiting an eternity
Another friend has done me in, it must be the latest thing
Dread to think how hold I’ll be when I’m older than I be

I get so sad
Sad sad sad about the weather
I get so mad
Mad mad mad about it all
Yes I’ve had
Just about enough of your crap see you later
Now I’m glad
Glad glad glad you are gone

The lovely thing about this life we all live
Nothing has to be carved out in stone
If you want to change things you just have to brave
The morning light and live another day

Could You Be The One (I’ve Been Looking For)?

I feel faint and my heart is weak
My pulse is racing I feel sick
My palms are sweaty
The air is thick
I’m wide awake but
Still in a dream

Could you be the one I’ve been looking for?
Could you be the one of my dreams?

Not many times I have felt this way
Excited and anxious but come what may
Exhaling sad thoughts of yesterday
Breathing in fresh air, living again!

Could you be the one I’ve been looking for?
Could you be the one of my dreams?

Let me down, gently down
This feels so good but I’ve been fooled before
Let me down, gently down
If it’s good for you too, I think I’ll stick around

Could you be the one I’ve been looking for?
Could you be the one of my dreams?

The Dream

Hide and seek of evening shadows on the wall
flickering of candlelight my guard to fall
Is there something in the way he looks at me
Does he see it mirrored when I gaze at he?

Oh it’s the dream I’m floating on
It’s the dream I’m floating on
Don’t make it real

A strange intoxicating air comes over we
Curious and curiouser deux esprit
Minding business dull existence through the day
Evening falls and self bound hearts are led astray

Oh it’s the dream I’m floating on
It’s the dream I’m floating on
Don’t make it real

In my waking hours my thoughts are all of you
As the night reclaims my mind you’re in there too
Inescapable headiness here to stay
And I wouldn’t want it any other way

Oh it’s the dream I’m floating on
It’s the dream I’m floating on
Don’t make it real

Itty Bitty Love Ditty

Don’t hold back any of your sweetness my love
There’s just no way you’ll smother me
There’s nothing that could come between us my love
There ain’t no room in this for three
Your smile to me is like the air
Your love is what I need to drink
I’m such a lucky girl

The night we met, the planets aligned my love
Our first kiss sealed my fate you see
Persistence really paid off thank you my love
For being patient with me
My head and heart were on the fritz
You saved me ‘fore I hit the skids
I’m such a lucky girl

Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty
Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty
Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty
Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty

It hasn’t always been so easy my love
But evidence has proved to be
That you’re my one and only true love my love
My dear it’s elementary
That love like ours is rare to find
Forever we’ll be intertwined
I’m such a lucky girl!

Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty
Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty
Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty
Itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty itty bitty love ditty
