A Million Hungry Eyes

I remember in Red Square
The monuments to us
A little toxin in our drinks
Had turned our tongues to rust

It’s so hard to believe you’re a swan
The curtains hang half-drawn
You wait for earth or sun to bring you dawn

A million hungry mouths
Would strip you to your bones
And every note would still
Be perfectly in tune
A million hungry eyes
Would strip you to your clothes
And everyone would still
They’d say you hung the moon

You brought me pages of hardcore torn
And casts of lovers yet unborn
You carried me across the room in a swoon
To soon forget you hung the moon

A million hungry mouths
Would strip you to your bones
And every note would still
Be perfectly in tune
A million hungry eyes
Would strip you to your clothes
And everyone would still
They’d say you hung the moon

Be quiet on the set
Take one
Be quiet on the set
Take two
Be quiet on the set…

Not The Same Without You Here

It’s that time of the year
That I remember when you were here
Early nights and the frost outside

Under covers we would hide
While our wet clothes hung and dried
We would warm up each other with our eyes
And play that game where we would name our kids

So if you hear me at all
From the end of that long hall
I want to tell you how much I miss you
And that it’s just not the
Same without you here

Today is the day
Before the end of this blessed world
I always thought we would see it together

But the sun is too afraid
To fight the clouds off today
And I don’t even have you to warm me
And sing that song and play along with our kids

So can you hear me, my dear
It sometimes feels like you’re somehow near
But if you are you will know how much I miss you
And that it’s just not the
Same without your voice

But there is nothing I can do
The bed is empty without you
I want to hold you and tell you I miss you
And that it’s just not the
Same without you here

So if you hear me at all
From the end of that long hall
I want to tell you how much I miss you
And that it’s just not the
Same without you here, without you here

If The Last Kiss Made You Cry

You like to hang around
Until they run aground
He left you sitting with your feet in the sand

So he now he’s out of the frame
But baby, you’ll need a name
And you released when he let go of your hand

Well if the first kiss is a lie just get away, yeah
And if the last kiss makes you cry then get away now

So if the first kiss is a lie, and the last kiss makes you cry
Well then for god’s sake get away tonight

You didn’t give too much
You didn’t take too much
And the taste of blood is on your tongue

It didn’t hurt too much
You didn’t feel too much
But you don’t feel quite as alive as when you were young

Well if the first kiss is a lie just get away, yeah
And if the last kiss makes you cry then get away now
There’s not much time to let go by, so get away now

So if the first kiss is a lie, and the last kiss left you dry
Well then you know you gotta fly tonight

Who’s Going To Carry You Home?

Under the stars you were magic child
But fell from so high and were broken
The wheels on the ground only anchor you
In whispers your name now is spoken

The summer’s fading sunsets
And autumn’s fading colours
The nights are getting colder
You better think it over

Who’s going to carry you home?
Who’ll hold you when you’re alone?
At the end of every evening
Beside you as you’re dreaming
Who’s going to care?
Who’s going to carry you home?

Nobody comes when you need some hands
No shoulders to bear your witness
That under the stars when mistakes are made
Who would dare grant their forgiveness?

The summer’s fading sunsets
And autumn’s fading colours
The nights are getting colder
You better think it over

Who’s going to carry you home?
Who’ll hold you when you’re alone?
At the end of every nightmare
Beside you with a dark prayer
Who’s going to care?
Who’s going to carry you home?

Underneath the stars
Maybe you can fly tonight
Blowing them all out
One by one

Stranger In Your Room

When it’s a stranger in your room
Just act normal, don’t be rude

But when he turns
And looks away
Take your chance
Make a break

It could even be your father
If he’s a stranger don’t even bother

But when he turns
And looks away
Take your chance
Make a break
When the words
Sound alien
Make a break
There and then
