One In Four

(Japanese Version)

Untitled 2

 

yes we are all the same in the end

yes we are all the same in the end

yes we are all the same

 

I hold back from joining into this

it breaks my back

and I want you

itís not that important to you

itís important to me

 

let me out, let me take in the air

let me out, let me take in the air

let me out, let me takeÖ

yes we are all the same in the end

yes we are all the same in the end

yes we are all the same

 

night falls down on you

turn around, it will swallow you

 

the story Iíve heard

it fades in front of me

and we all stay the same

weíre unchanged

 

yes we are all the same in the end

they story Iíve heard it fades

 

Something In My Way

 

Thank god for winter rain,

Clearing out the poison in my mouth,

This city, stuck to me

it summarises all my worries

 

Collapsing under my own weight

The line on which my movement takes

I fall down, I sink deeper,

Drinking fast so Iíll get there quicker

 

No whereís perfect, chose this place with care

Always something in my way

Mourning over stupid things Iíd change

Always something in my way

 

I canít remember things

The walk I took, the colour of your door

I feel sick, I feel worried

I always get there in a hurry

 

Iím scared of what youíll think

If I showed you how I really am

I get drunk, I get erratic

But always seem to end up static

 

No whereís perfect, chose this place with care

Always something in my way

Mourning over stupid things Iíd change

Always something in my way

 

Economy Class

You come and go with a grace I canít define

Heavy in my mind

Itís a grace I canít define

 

Your face has stayed engraved inside my eyes

Youíre thick inside my blood

And heavy in my mind

Itís a grace I canít define

 

So go and lose or find your way

And we can share another day

So go and lose or find your way

And we can share another day

 

We can share another day

 

Trinity

She spoke with great conviction,

And said, ďwhen you die your soul will leave you from your feetĒ

How could she seem so certain?

When life from day to day already has me beat

She made me wish I was pious

She made me wish I was holy

I realised what I couldnít say

I was envious of the light inside her

 

She told me about her father

Who said when he goes heíd like her tie up his affairs

Her brothers arenít talking

They fought bitterly over who would get the larger share

Shares no patients for such matters

What concerns her are their souls

I realised what I couldnít say

I was envious of the light inside her

 

her parents called her trinity

she was born they became three

Sermonising with her eyes

She looked up and made them wise

Iíll never waste another day

Through indolence and passing phase

I can deal with past and change

Cos I know that Iíve seen the light inside her

 

How cruel to lose a another

I wonder if her wisdom ever lets her cry

Digging deep for courage

Destined to be the one thatís left to wonder why

She reclined and showed me pictures

Canada looks nice in spring

I realised what I couldnít say

I was envious of the light inside her

envious of the light inside her

 

Her parents called her trinity

she was born they became three

Sermonising with her eyes

She looked up and made them wise

Iíll never waste another day

Through indolence and passing phase

I can deal with past and change

Cos  I know that Iíve seen the light inside her

 

Iíve seen the light inside her

Seahorse Perfect

stand at ease beside me

I'm tense until you're close

stretching tight

I'm wondering what for

sweet and wrong intention

comes falling from your mouth

I drink it up, dark and easy

 

how can I imagine all that's gone before?

my hear is geared to wonder

how did she end up sorry?

 

staring into nothing

you ask to much of me

worried face buried in your hands

shake your head in knowledge

we'll hesitate then act

settle down or burn ourselves a bridge

 

how can I imagine all that's gone before?

my hear is geared to wonder

how did she end up sorry?

 

make me the silent one

 

To Tell You The Truth

 

I've been holding out

I've been up and down

trying to talk about things

you have both never seen

lay down scattered around in pieces

stillness over the air

that's filling up on you

 

payment can never justify

what you've started now

then it takes your life right from you

and you've got no one else to blame

but with selfless hope

I'll see you rise out of this mess again

 

fall down put me over and take it

losing always a game

but failure has it's own

I can help all I can

I can help

All I cannot do is offer you the truth

 

And it's all in a book

it's called motivation

and then we'll all have a look inside and see

what's been pulling me down

long, long way down

long, long way down

long, long way down

 

Sink Down

we climb to a secret place

standing with arms folded high

on you face a scornful smile

is burning through my chest

 

I'm sorry I disturbed your calm

but you forgot your right from wrong

and I warm to you

yes I warm to you

 

reformed by the strangest light

cutting through the drunken crowd

past the volatile and loud

who speak but make no sense

 

I look at friends with a sinking heart

I fear we've all grown apart

but I warm to you

yes I warm to you

 

wake up you dreamer

don't speak to soon

every cold word adds fuel to the fire

 

you forgot your right from wrong

 

wake up you dreamer

don't speak too soon

every cold word adds fuel to the fire

 

Written Apology

 

When I was thinking of you

And how to talk to the dead

With your eyes always closed

they're still alive in your head

 

I never thought I'd believe it

I never thought about you

with the eyes of an angel

All you see is the truth

 

And Iím not lying,

Iím just smiling,

And all I want to say,

Is that I thank you,

but  its a precious feeling,

you can take or leave it,

And all I want to say,

Is that I found you

 

I didnít mean to abandon

everything that Iíve done

I gave it up for a reason

Iíd like to follow the sun

I donít think thatís wrong or right,

and I'll accept what I've done

And Iíll make no excuses

Cause Iím the selfish one

 

Suitable For Frequent Use

crazy friend with smiling eyes

hold me close don't let me die

sparkles like a diamond shines

opens up what's wrong inside

 

if you've got a minute I'll take you for a ride

 

I'm concerned you must believe

sweetness gratefully received

crazy girl with x-ray eyes

watch them cut me down to size

 

if you've got a minute I'll take you for a ride

if you've got a minute I'll take you for a ride

 

crazy friend with smiling eyes

keep me safe and passified

 

if you've got a minute I'll take you for a ride

 

Same Day, Different Number

 

Come home, pick the phone up,

Quick your shoes out on the floor

Tired eyes looking through me

Answer machine left screeching in the hall

 

Your face looks tired and smiling

Canít you let it fall

So full of new frustration

So you will cry, or not say much at all

 

Itís cruel to be compared to whatís in the past

Itís cruel to be compared to whatís in the past

 

Same day, different number

Train fills up like time and time before

Had luck, you get the weirdo one

Says that he hasnít noticed you before

 

Your so sure of your difference

that  it canít be ignored

You come to a hard conclusion

You werenít born so that you could be bored

 

Itís cruel to be compared to whatís in the past

Itís cruel to be compared to whatís in the past

The Last Post

postcards and letters

and people's addresses

are piled up on top of my table

the book in the middle I haven't been reading

tells a story for sure

 

I can make no sense

out of this anxious mess

take me far away from this town

 

I hear you're returning

I wonder for how long

have you got rid of your demons

so now you protect him

you shelved all your doubts and

rock him to sleep in a cradle

 

I can make no sense

out of this anxious mess

take me far away from this town

 

see the sand stone wall

to the wind stands tall

it whispers sound advice in my ear

adhere

believe

that something will bring you relief

accept as true

that part of the problem is you

 

while you were dreaming

feeling the motion

only four hours to go

you and the demon fly over the ocean

god could hear you sighing

god could hear you sighing

Dig Deeper

fill up my heart

with the sadness of your day

if you give it to me

then I will take it far away

 

baby dig, dig deeper in goodbye

then we'll smile, smile later as we cry

 

where, where to turn

because I know I've got to leave

I must rush to the chance

that's been placed in front of me

 

we've got to get out of the rain

we've got to get out of the rain

we've got to get out of the rain

 

baby dig, dig deeper in goodbye

then we'll smile, smile later as we cry

 

we've got to get out of the rain

we've got to get out of the rain

we've got to get out of the rain

A Home By The Sea

do you recall a plan that we made

crossing the circus

a place in the town, a home by the sea

I think we deserve this

if there's something wrong I'll notice

I can tell

it's been so long, I know you far too well

 

for now we'll survive

waiting on tables

cold office calling

our place is still here

we'll come back next year

just don't say we're stalling

if there's something wrong I'll notice

I can tell

it's been so long, I know you far too well

 

killers come as friends

 

The Worst Man

shame on you, do you ever use the truth to amuse?

but you knew though you didn't have the heart to pull through

 

I think I'm gonna have a wake up

it's really not that hard

then I'll take the chance to say that

I see things in the cold light

 

shame on you, now that everyone has heard

it can't be changed, so move through

and I know you didn't mean to hurt anyone

 

then I'll take a chance to say that

I could keep that calm

then until my mouth runs empty

I couldn't stop for shaking

I couldn't stop for shaking
