all day long we sing our favorite songs it's going on so long how can it be so wrong when you feel like you're a loser or you think that you're a star lost in music that's what we always are keep those thoughts that you're trying to plant in my head the kids are overfed and I just wanna stay in bed we've had enough leave us alone with your wonderful stuff in the summer sun we are happy having fun we've got to run aren't we still very young when you think I might be someone else who isn't me lost in music that's what we'll always be we've had enough leave us alone with your wonderful stuff

fou 05:34
there's a pair of ladies boots standing in the window of a tiny cornerstone it's been there since the last time I saw you smile on lazy summers days people look and listen they watch the days go by when we walk our final and mellow mile you made me lose my breath you take me far away watch my face for evil grin my smile for sweet regret when it's getting dark outside it's been dark since the devil had a plan that could not fail you made me lose my breath you take me far away just like a shadow in the sky on a pale blue night you made me wanna change my mind you made me lose my breath you take me far away you made me crawl for death you take my breath away

I don't know what I was thinking of when I stood before your door the other day so I turned around took the bus downtown just to be with the ones left behind I don't know what I was gonna say when I picked the phone the other day I don't know what I was I don't know what I was thinking of when I took the little red/green pill today so I turned around took the bus downtown just to be with the ones left behind I don't know what I was thinking of, in the end it doesn't matter it made me laugh and it made me smile I just shook my head but I don't know why it made me mourn and it made me cry I just shook my head but I don't know why I forgot what forgot what I was thinking of when I stood before your door the other day so I turned around took the bus downtown just to be with the ones left behind I don't know what I, in the end it doesn't matter

if I had a treasure I would keep it in a safe if I had the time I would spend it with myself if I had a fast car I'd be alone out in the blue if I had heart I would give to you

what's that in your hand you're trying so hard to hide? and who's got all those things you're trying to find? when did you decide you wanted to sleep all day when will you ever learn the things they play with you till midnight? and ask you to be alright, about my heart i just don't know where is place you're from and never talked about? were you running up or sneaking down? is it cause your red and does the sweater match when everything you do turns out to be blue? with you till midnight, and ask you to be alright about my heart i just don't know, will I ever know play with you till midnight, and ask you to be alright about my heart i just don't know, will I ever know

if you don't 03:43
when you say you're out and o.k. i can find you in again let's pretend your swimming upstream every stroke you make is in vain if you don't know where you're going any road will get you there and i can't take you anywhere but here i'll define you hold the line love is not always on time (come closer) when you say you're out and o.k. and everyone can see you're not when you're conquering the useless every step you take is lost if you don't know where you're going any road will get you there and i can't take you anywhere but here i'll define you hold the line love is not always on time (come closer)

I will stay in a city so remote, where everyone is overbored to death I will stay in a place so far away, off the map, erased to leave a gap someday all in all it's … you know it's true, I always be on your back

charlize 03:46
no one next to me I sit by the window and I'm passing the house we made out in the cab driver sees nothing else than me hears not the voices and the songs we heard in the valley by the sea go on with the scene and I guess you know the storyboard you're name is charlize and this is the way the story goes I am going to be home to fill the blank spaces I spent hours trying to capture the moment never mine it's hard to learn a line to tell every story no matter how happy the ending beginning with a lie go on with the scene and I guess you know the storyboard you're name is charlize and this is the way the story goes

doppler fx 03:58
we're active, but bold. you're the cops the dirty dogs we're enemies but fragile. where guillotines there heads drop we're idols and jealous. kubrick, light beer, massive and natural ok. we're powerless but quiet and restless in our sleepingbags terry unknown, video, ex-wife. come on I was always out there come on I was always out there all alone to you I hope I always matter kubrick, light beer, massive and natural ok. we're powerless but quiet and restless in our sleepingbags terry unknown, video, ex-wife. come on I was always out there come on I was always out there all alone to you I hope I always matter

on mondays 01:59
in a second all is gone, only seconds after we begun only minutes burned to ash, only minutes then a lightnings flash we can't complain we shook the trees we dug the dirt we lost our shoes we lost our shirts and still complain we lost our sense of purpose and we lost our common goals

heal 03:30
whatever it may take, I'll heal the pain of everyone whatever it may take, till you come back won't you live without me, cause I can't be without thee, won't you come whatever it may take, I'll heal the pain of everyone cause I feel the pain of everyone, till you come back won't you live without me, cause I can't be without thee, won't you come
