all David Gray lyrics



Dead in the Water
People stand in line
People stand in line
People stand in line
A permonition of
The killer's angel eyes
An armageddon sky
Tell it like it is
It's like the old man says
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water

They come from miles around
They come from miles around
They come from miles around
In avarice and love
To suckle on the blood
Of some forgotten god
Sell it like it is
It's like the old man says
We're dead in the water now
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the water

A simple act of faith
A simple act of faith
A simple act of faith
A celebration of
The colour and the creed
The cancer and it's seed
Crackles on the mic
Can call it what you like
We're dead in the water now
We're dead in the water now
Dead in the waterback to top
Caroline
Caroline
Those crazy eyes that shine
The days blowing through my mind
Like falling leaves
It ain't no good
I tried hard as I could
But you just won't let
My poor heart be

The final war
A steel eyed dinosaur
Girl I want you more
Than I can say
Ah but caroline
It seems like everytime
Honey all I get is further away

The state I'm in
Got goosebumps on my skin
See the water I'll jump right in
Your heart so free
I'll face the facts
It's paper on the cracks
Girl till you got you right
Back here with me

The final war
A steel eyed dinosaur
Girl I want you more
Than I can say
Ah but caroline
It seems like everytime
Honey all I get is further away

Wooooooo

A steel eyed dinosaur
Girl I want you more
Than I can say
Ah but caroline
It seems like everytime
Honey all I get is further away
And further
And further awayback to top
Long Distance Call
If I lean my weight on it
If I fix my heart to the line
Might find a way from it
To some easy time
My skin's all while with it
I'm up so high when I fall
I fall so from it
Ain't nowhere at all

Early morning sun
Shine it and I'm gone
To plane out and on the lake
Hey hey yeah yeah
To glide out on the wing
Turn around and sing
The fear now taking hold
I'll bring you love but it's all been sold

My head's all wired with it
My tongue gets tied when I speak
The space inside roaring
When that signal break

Early morning sun
Shine it and I'm gone
To plane out and on the lake
Hey hey yeah yeah
To glide out on the wing
Turn around and sing
The fear now taking hold
I'll bring you love but it's all been soldback to top
Freedom
Take your eyes off me
There's nothing here to see
Just trying to keep my head together
And as we make our vow
Let us remember ho
There's nothing good that lasts forever

Time out on the running boards
We're running
Through a world that lost it's meaning
Trying to find a way to love
This running
Ain't no kind of freedom

Feel the touch of grief
You stand in disbelief
Can steal the earth from right beneath you
And falling in so far
They know just where you are
Yea but there ain't no way to reach you

Time out on the running boards
We're running
Through a world that lost it's meaning
Trying to find a way to love
This running
Ain't no kind of freedom
Freedom freedom
Time out on the running boards
We're running
Through a world that lost it's meaning
Trying to find a way to love
This running
Ain't no kind of freedom
Freedomback to top
Kangaroo
Don't pay no mind to it
Oh let it blow
Break you up inside
If you don't let it go
Jeez what are you like honey
I don't know

Recommended by my bank
And everybody in the tank
First of all I'd like to thank

This might take while honey
Hey don't blink
Missing by a mile now we're
Here on the brink
Not a day goes by honey
I don't think

I could be your volunteer
We'll make the whole thing disappear
Saddle up we're outta here
You could be my olive branch
Lift me up above the stench
Walk me through the avalanche

Honey won't you be my flood
Nothing ever comes out good
Trouble in the neighbourhood
Conversations gone askew
And how do you make it feel like new
Kookaburra kangaroo
Will you won't you be my leach
Take it all and when I screech
Leave it there just outta reach
Take me to that burning bush
Give me something that I can't crush
Lead me out into the hush

So far behind
So far behind
So far behind
So far behindback to top
Last Boat to America
Make me a boat
Away I'll float
Into the stillness of a pure blue sky
There's nothing here to hold me now
And I got no more tears to cry

Grant me a wish just one more kiss
Oh baby kiss me till the daylight's through
These days of make believe
But there ain't nothing any fool can do

Pin another dream on my
'cos the night is bearing down
Baby let's got all the way this time

Sing me the truth sweet bird of youth
I got some trouble trying to understand
Beneath the veils of mystery
Are these the movements of an unseen hand

Our arms are full of sunken treasure baby
Now our heads are full of perfect sound
But do we truly see it hey
Till we're placing it in the ground

Take just what you need from me
'cos the night is bearing down
Baby let't go all the way this time

Frost on my windowpane is forming

Don't pin that line on me oh no
Don't pin that line on me oh no
Don't pin that line on me oh no
Don't pin that line on me oh no

Baby let's go all the way this time
Won't you take me all the way this time
Baby let's go all the way this time
Make me a boat
Away I'll float
Into the stillness of a pure blue skyback to top
Real Love
The dawn in all it's majesty
Is stealing me away
The dawn in all it's honesty
Is turning me to clay
And through the bears of iron rain
Way beyond and back again
I hear the voice of eden cry
Lift me up I'm walking on high

It's real love
Real love

This world in all it's clarity
Is glorious, is fake
This world in all it's vanity
Is more than I can take
And down the road the iron wheels
Chain my heart to how it feels
I hear the voice of eden cry
Lift me up I'm walking on high

It's real love
Real love
Real love
Real love

And something in the heart of me
Is telling me it's time
To meet the eye of destiny
And leave it all behind
And through my bones an iron rage
Paints my soul upon the page

I hear the voice of eden cry
Lift me up to walk on high
Make me wanna lay down and die
It's real love
Real love
Real love
Real love
The dawn in all it's majesty
Is stealing me awayback to top
Knowhere
Slow voices speaking through a hurricane
Said that I wanted but I lied
You're looking good
Hey man I can't complain
Ghost on the road at night

Seen him out walking he's just skin and bones
I don't see nothing in her eyes
Some call it hell felt like home from home
I'm dreaming different skies

I don't know where i
I don't know what I'm supposed to do now
Get it on all night
I don't know where i
I don't know what i
It seems to me boy
That you're doing all right
I don't know what i
I don't know where i
Long way to go now
Keep it all inside

36 hours but my mind is fresh
Live for the moment the I'm gone
Suck on the sympathy and feel the rush
Go on my blue eyed son

I don't know where i
I don't know what I'm supposed to do now
Get it on all night
I don't know where i
I don't know what i
It seems to me boy
That you're doing all right
I don't know what i
I don't know where i
Long way to go now
Keep it all inside

(repeat chorus)back to top
December
All my tears will dry away
All my tears will dry away
All my tears will dry away

Words don't bother me no more
Black money falling to the floor
Flags out on the balconies
Black money washing to the seas
Oh my mind
What happened to the time
December

All my house got blown away
All my house got blown away
All my house got blown away
Walls of glass and walls of stone
Got blown away

Stations in the neon light
Your body strange as dynamite
Killers underneath our skins
Black mirrors black hyacinths
Oh my eyes

What happened to the skies
December
December

Be Mine
From the very first moment I saw you
That's when I knew
All the dreams I held in my heart
Had suddenly come true
Knock me over stone cold sober
Not a think I could say or do
'cos baby when I'm walking with you now
My eyes are so wide
Like you reached right into my head
And turned on the light inside
Turning on the light
Inside my mind hey

Come on baby it's all right
Sunday monday day or night
Written blue on white it's plain to see
That rainy shiny night or day
What's the difference anyway
Baby till your heart belongs to me

If I had some influence girl
With the powers that be
I'd have them fire that arrow at you
Like they fired it right at me
And maybe when your heart and soul are burning
You might see
That everytime I'm talking with you
It's always over too soon
That everyday feels so incomplete
Till you walk into the room
Say the word now girl
I'll jump that moon hey

Come on baby it's ok
Rainy shiny night or day
There's nothing in the way now
Don't you see
Winter summer day or night
Centigrade of fahrenheit
Baby till your heart belongs to me
Thursday friday short or long
When you got a love so strong
How can it be wrong now mercy me
Jumpin' jesus holy cow!
What's the difference anyhow
Baby till your heart belongs to meback to top
Easy Way to Cry
Smoke curls through my hands
These one night stands
Are making me crazy I know
Morning I'll go
Crowds in the rain all passing by

Faith gone from your eyes
Each word it flies
Taking you further away
And come that day
There ain't no easy way to cry

And as I watch you leave I stand
Inside my house of straw
And everywhere I go I find
Things recollecting to my mind
How right it all could be

Faith gone from your eyes
Each word it flies
Straight to the heart and I know
Watching you go
There ain't no easy way to cry

So right now
So right now
So right now

And as I watch you leave I stand
Inside my house of straw
And everywhere I go I find
Things recollecting to my mind
How right it all could be
Could be

So right now
So right now
So right now
So right so right
So rightback to top
The Other Side
Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
See you on the other side

Honey now if I'm honest
I still don't know what love is
Another mirage folds into the haze of time recalled
And now the floodgates cannot hold
All my sorrow all my rage
A tear that falls on every page

Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side

Maybe I oughta mention
Was never my intention
To harm you or your kin
Are you so scared to look within
The ghosts are crawling on our skin
We may race and we may run
We'll not undo what has been done
Or change the moment when it's gone

Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side

I know it would be outrageous
To come on all courageous
And offer you my hand
To pull you up on to dry land
When all I got is sinking sand
The trick ain't worth the time it buys
I'm sick of hearing my own lies
And love's a raven when it flies

Meet me on the other side
Meet me on the other side
I'll see you on the other side

Honey now if I'm honest
I still don't know what love isback to top
