Dublin

I saw you in St. Stephen's Green

Sitting on the grass, arms on your knees

Jeans black, holes frayed away

Jeans you used to wear with me

I remember

I never went there that day

It was just a memory away

An artifact I left behind

To make it seem like there's a line

 

I remember

I remember

Drinking red wine

In the changing lines

In my drinking days

I was thinking ways

I believe there's a story

I believe that's with you

Can you please tell me something

Can you please tell me anything

Battle lying with me and fantasy

Battle lying... I don't know that fantasy

I remember

Drinking red wine

In the changing lines

In my drinking days

I was thinking ways

Favourite Line

Oh there's a window

With a view of this moment

I want to tell you not to move

Just to stay right here

We could do this together 

On our own. For this moment

You said to be forever

Into whatever you going to be

I don't mind it

It feels the same

She said that's my favourite line

Can we give one last life to this

Oh I know

I could never win

Oh I know

I could never win

Aloysius

Come with me

I'll be better

Wait and see

Aloysius

Are you free?

On this page tonight

It occurs to me

I don't mind it

It feels the same

She said that's my favourite line

Can we give one more life to this

Wait

High on the water again tonight

Came off the sky on a lovely tide 

Up on that satellite

How did we ever survive?

I'm going to wait for you tonight

I'm going to wait for you this time

Tell me and I'll be there too

I'm going to wait for you

Is that enough for tonight?

I am okay with these little lines

Pack up and heed that advice

I'll never stop 'til I'm loving right

I'm going to wait for you tonight

I'm going to wait for you this time

Tell me and I'll be there too

I'm going to wait for you

There's a reason for

Us being here

Are you going to help me?

I'm not playing lately. 

I'm going to wait for you

Gulin Gu

In a moment I went home

There was nothing after me so I went home

I want it too

There was nothing like Gulin Gu

I never met anyone like Gulin Gu

I'm on fire with Gulin Gu

Gulin Gu

Old dreams on my mind

A world of unknown

It's on my mind

I want you too

There was nothing like Gulin Gu

I never met anyone like Gulin Gu

I'm on fire with Gulin Gu

Gulin Gu

All My Friends

I want to stay

I was trying to hide the sound of my footsteps

I could never change the way you changed it

And I'm never coming back again

I want to say

All my friends are gone

I can take it if you want me to

I went away

I was trying to find the sound of your footsteps

I would never change the way she changed it

And I'm never turning back again

I want to say

All my friends are gone

I can take it if you want me to

Oh I never 

thought our world could be so far away

She said darling

Are we ever gonna get away?

Where you going?

I just want to be so far away

Please just tell me

Are we ever gonna get away?

All my friends are gone

She and the Dancer

I don't want to make this right

I was tired of all the useless fights

So I'm going to try and walk this line

 It's better to give than to run

She and the dancer

Take out the thrill and turn me on

There's nothing wrong with wanting some

I don't know what to say to you

It's better to burn than to lose

She and the dancer

I'm gonna run

I'm gonna run

I feel like I'm on my own

Watching the rolling bones

I'm gonna run

I'm on the run

Open the door and walk on through

There was never any stopping you

I don't know why I want to try

It's better to give than to run

She and the dancer

Hurricane

She came calling

I don't know why

Everything was over

Don't they realize?

Are they going to take me?

Should they even try?

I'll be here forever

So they realize

Are you gonna change my mind?

Can we find a way to make this better?

She's not gonna change her mind tonight

Can we make it easier?

I don't want to go around again

It felt like a hurricane

It felt like something new

I don't want to hesitate

I don't want to tell you

It felt like a hurricane

It felt like something new

She kept asking

Don't they realize?

Are we going to make it?

Should we even try?

I don't want to wander

It's the only line

I'll be here forever

So they realize

Are you gonna change my mind?

Woods (A Fantasy)

Can anybody hear that?

The sound of the woods

Fantasy

Are they looking at you? Are they looking at me?

Take the long way home on the old dirt road

Everybody knows which way to go

I don't give a damn for your dreaming

Can anybody hear that?

The sound of the woods

Fantasy

Shadows moving in the dark light

She said

There's something in the fire tonight

Can anybody hear that?
The sound of the woods

Fantasy 

Here the sound of the woods

Wild and open ways

Take me for some water

Allied on this wake

Here the sound of the woods

The night makes it real

Move out of this country

Just like a fantasy

And I told you I'd be better on my own

Darling I'm tired of all you've been fighting for

And I never thought I'd ever get this far

Yet I'm here and I don' t know what to do

Darling I'm tired of all you've been fighting for

And I never thought I'd ever get this far

Carolita

On my mind

All the time

From the start

To the never

But we'll start

It's all we have to

Becaue we aren't like them others

On my heart

It's on my heart

We'll get by now

It's what we do

Like we try to be cool

I let go

All the time

It's out of me

Onto you

It's on my heart

Carolita

On my heart

Carolita

Carolita

Care a little

Hobby of the Hawks

It's the hobby of the hawks

I'd never heard that before

She said she didn't know

But I remember

Get up and let's go

She'll be back soon

You said that I'd be alright right here

I don't know why

But I told them all I tried

She said good night and I simply said goodbye

I don't know why

But I told them all my lines

I love you

Tell me and I'll never let it go

She's the only thing I've ever known

I could never tell you what I know

Can I don't want be here alone

I love you

Enemy

She's a strange runner

She gets back on her toes

I'm a page burner

Don't know what they know

You're the enemy

You're the end of me

I don't mind 

If I can

Something

In my mind

I could never

Take you on

I could never

Well I'm a wage burner

It's all I ever tried

Role playing

It's easier than life

 

You're the enemy

You're the end of me

Hopeless

I'm gonna cry

But I don't mind

Oh I don't mind

Help me

I'm gonna try

No one has ever

Done this before

 

You're the enemy

You're the end of me
 

Gave Up the World

Gave up the world for me

This man

Gave up the world for me

They took away everything

For what?

They took away all I need

But I believe in this life

I could never tell you that again

She came back and told me that again

Slip inside like you know the way

I don't mind it if I had the time

But I believe in this life

Only

Over the top

Across a great design

Oh my god

Oh no god

In my heart, I want to try

Every night it's on my mind

Could you even try to line

I'm pretty sure it's genuine

Only

I don't mind if we do

Miles apart

Oh my love

I can't let it shine

Open realizing little bells

See the kind of thing I know

Every time I try to line

Feels just like its geniune

 

Only

I don't mind if we do

Mile apart

Lay Awake at Night and Call it Dancing

There's something going on

Lay awake at night and call it dancing

She said

There's nothing going on

Lay awake at night and call it dancing

I can't make it

I got an appointment

With a man

Who said he was better than me

I know we'll let this go again

Lay awake at night and call it dancing

Now they said they didn't mind

Lay awake at night and call it dancing

I can't make it

I got an appointment

With a man

Who said he was better than me

She said that I'd be lost and out of control

I don't mind anyway

We went back and she said can we get away again

I don't mind either way

Lay awake at night and call it dancing
