all David Gray lyrics



Faster, Sooner, Now
Hey now, you got me by the tongue
I feel like there's nowhere I belong
And they're working it pretty hard
And they're selling it by the yard
But it's more than I can afford
That's all that I know

Leader, it comes as no surprise
See now, these are coins that were his eyes
Silver dollars and hoods of steel
Tell me nothing can be revealed
The more you get it the less you feel
That's all that I know
Starts a shivering in my spine
And a fever I can't define
It gets colder the higher you climb
That's all that I know

You kill me with every word you say
I'm dead now, along with faith and chivalry
Silver dollars and hoods of steel
Tell me nothing can be revealed
The more you get it the less you feel
That's all that I know
Colder the higher you climb
Colder the higher you climb
Colder the higher you climb
That's all that I knowback to top
Late Night Radio
Oh mary jane
She step on a train
Head for the city lights
Yearning inside
To swim with the tide
And taste it, alright
Bag on her shoulder
Breathing the cold
There by the metal tracks
She saw it all shine
And swore in her mind
She'd never go back

And she don't mind the late night
Late night radio
She don't mind the late night radio
She don't mind the late night
Late night radio
Na na

Couldn't have dreamed
The things that she seen
There on the avenue
She stared right into a million eyes
That looked her right through
Telling red joe
The places she'd go
And wiping the table clean
She got no idea
The demon of fear
Or what a broken heart mean

And she don't mind the late night
Late night radio
She don't mind the late night radio
She don't mind the late night
Late night radio
Na na na na na not at all
Na na na na na not at all
Na na na na na not at all
Na na

New york was dark
Dirty and stark
Burning with yellow wings
Everyday come
With fever and hum
Who knows what it brings
Walking a wall
Without a thought
To fall and hit the ground
Sweet mary jane
With eyes like the rain
Alive to the sound

And she don't mind the late night
Late night radio
She don't mind the late night radio
She don't mind the late night
Late night radio
And she don't mind the late night
Late night radio
She don't mind the late night radio
She don't mind the late night
Late night radio

Sell, Sell, Sell
I beg to differ
To break the chain
To draw a line right through
Tomorrow
And cancel every claim
I've seen reflections
Beneath my skin
And drums beating for battle
In the eyes of children

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no colour
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above
And sell sell sell

Oh violent flowers
You fill the screen
Betray your mother
And change your name
So tall and fickle
And blind as snow
Running headfirst for oblivion
Cause you've nowhere else to go

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no colour
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above
And sell sell sell

In chill of winter
In dead of night
Each so familiar with the hunger
That they got no appetite
They talk of loving
I hear her say
That as fast as I can give it
He's taking it away

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no colour
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above
And sell sell sell

And turning it over
Right down
Where the eye don't see no colour
Where the war don't make a sound
Ice on the shoulder
Noel
Praise the lord above
And sell sell sell

A weeping willow
The desert wind
So many learn to swallow
So few to understand
The deepest longing
This cup of faith
Where to put them in a world
Where no innocence is safeback to top
Hold on to Nothing
Hold on to nothing
Hold on to coldest steel
It chills you down inside
When you see just what is real
Paste it up and tear it down
Move it on along the rushing road
Seventeen fahrenheit
Feel the winter grow

There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it down
There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it down
Nowhere to write it down
Write it down

Step down the alley
Walking against the stony crowd
Trying not to listen
But they shout so loud
Chew you up and spit you out
Crush you between it's finger and it's thumb
The world in all it's anger
Oh and there's always more to come

There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it down
There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it
There's nowhere to write it down
Nowhere to write it down
Write it downback to top
Everytime
Down from the doorway
And into the street
I hear the morning bell
Over and over the pattern repeat
I hear the morning bell
And all the faces cold as stone
In the january chill
You have led me into worlds unknown
And I'm walking there still

Everytime now
Everytime now
I think of you mine now
I just can't contain
I'm seven feet tall and
There's nightingales calling
Shooting stars falling
Like jewels in the rain

I ask myself I ask myself
Can this life be the same
That spun me round and put me down
And fill me up with shame
And all the heads are turning now
Down the tottenham court road
Cause I just can't help but sing it out
Case I just might explode

Everytime now
Everytime now
I think of you mine now
I can't comprehend
The saxophones blowing
Cherry trees growing
Right here in my hand

A dance in the moonlight
So high on a june night
Magazines strewn right
Over the chair
Your spine a white ladder
Your eyes singing sadder
Nothing else seems to matter
As soon as you're there
And everytime now
Everytime now
I think of you mine now
I just can't contain
I'm seven feet tall and
There's nightingales calling
Shooting stars falling
Like jewels in the rain
Everytime now
Everytime now
Everytime now
Everytime

Magdalena
Morning, sit in the morning sun
Evening, watching the shadow come
Through the bright streets of london
I feel the rain
Upon my eyes as I wonder
At this spell that I'm under, magdalen
Since you came along

Meet me with your arms of snow and
Meet me with your mouth undone
I'm burning up from head to tow eh
Magdalena when you're gone

Dreaming, we're drinking the night away
Talking, way past the break of day
Through the bright streets of london
I feel the rain
Upon my eyes as I wonder
At this spell that I'm under, magdalen
Since you came along

Meet me with your arms of snow and
Meet me with your mouth undone
I'm burning up from head to tow eh
Magdalena when you're gone

Nananananananananananananana

Meet me with your arms of snow and
Meet me with your mouth undone

Magdalena when you're goneback to top
Smile
I'm falling by the wayside
I'm sinking with the sun
Everything I do
Is wrong wrong wrong
Gazing at the billboards
Staring down the broken lines

Sleeping on the backseat
I could not believe
You were right up there beside me
Tugging at my sleeve
And putting up your lipstick
Just like you did a thousand times
And something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
Something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
I wake up in the darkness
Its more than I can stand
I'm reaching out to touch it
It breaks up in my hand
I've never known the headlights
To shine so cold

I'm waiting for the morning
To steal over the hills
I'm urging for the road
To speed these wheels
I'm watching for the sunrise
Turning all the teardrops gold

Cause something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
Something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
And something in your eyes that makes me smile
Oh yeah
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah etc.back to top
Only the Lonely
I'm raising up my voice
To the walls and to the sky
It seeks no explanation
It waits for no reply
Really it is nothing
Just a cry to the wilds

I'm delirious with chaos
I'm wonderstruck with awe
In my soul I'm dreaming only
Of your velvet shore
When I'm walking there my face
Untangles like a child

And only the lonely
Only the lonely
Lonely could know me

I've been talking all night long
There's nothing more to say
So I'm searching every mirror
For a trace of yesterday
But the air it holds no traces
Where the eagles were flying

I'm haunted by the skyline
The concrete and the rain
The window speaks of winter
So I'll set my heart again
Somewhere in the dust
A curlew is crying

And only the lonely
Only the lonely
Lonely could know me
I'm talking all night long
Talking all night

There's a copper moon that's buried
Where solitude expands
And distant planets moving
They're weighing on my hands
They're darkening my pages

And there's daylight in my fingers
But it's snowing in my bones
Been sucking on the echo
Of a thousand telephones
And when we meet again
We will be strangers

And only the lonely
Only the lonely
Lonely could know me
And only the lonely
Only the lonely
Lonely could know meback to top
What Am I Doing Wrong?
Ghost on the highway
Bird with metal wings
Ghost on the highway
Bird with metal wings
Crowd all around me
Just don't hear a thing
Ghost on the highway
Bird with metal wings

What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing tell me
You don't telephone
You don't telephone
You don't telephone
You don't telephone me

Stand in the doorway
There in yellow light
Down in the doorway
Bathed in morning light
Saw you before me
Thought maybe it might
Down in the doorway
Under yellow light

What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing tell me
You don't telephone
You don't telephone
You don't telephone
You don't telephone me

You never spoke a word
But it's over
I saw the way you turned your head
You never spoke a word
But it's understood

What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing tell me
She don't telephone
She don't telephone
She don't telephone
She don't telephone me

Sitting here late at night
Sitting here late at night
My heart is aching
Heard it all before

What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing wrong
What am I doing tell meback to top
Gutters Full of Rain
A gutter full of rain
An empty picture frame
A house out at the edges of the city
Never noticing the war
Til it's right there at your door
And suddenly your hands are bloody

I was seeking to possess
Now another girl's caress
Is on your flesh
The bitterness is tasted
There's nobody in your chair
No hand to touch my hair
The sun even the air seems wasted

Let it go now
Let it all slip away
And we'll start it all over again
Me like a million others before
Trying to make sense of the rain

Were these twenty years a dream
Was it ever as it seemed
Get to wonder if it really existed
Cause the thief who stole my life
Has taken too my faith
I can see now how the world gets
Twisted

Let it go now
Let it all slip away
And we'll start it all over again
Me like a million others before
Trying to make sense of the rain

In spite of all the shame
Sometimes I hear your name
I think of us when we were younger
Then I'm shutting out the noise
And I'm trying to hear the voice
That used to tell me love was
Stronger

Light another cigarette
But the one I got's still lit
I can't seem to keep my fingers
Steady
Never noticing the war
Til it's right there at your door
And suddenly your hands are bloodyback to top
Forever Is Tomorrow Is Today
Tuesday my heart is brimming
I'm a child in the wild wind
Dead leaves and daylight dimming
No beginning and no end
Inside a candle of defiance
Moonlight
A river of pearls

Cause we're going to need more
Than money and science
To see us through this world

You say it can't be done
You'd rather die of fun
Get out of the way
For me for you for everyone
Forever is tomorrow is today

Shut all the windows
Shut all the doors
We're keeping it all out of sight
We're keeping it all
It's tearing us apart
You don't know your good
From your bad from your black
From your blood from your wrong
From your right
So you camouflage your heart

I don't want no other distractions
There's too much here to see
Faint hearts or jaded reactions
Contraptions of history

You say it can't be done
You'd rather die of fun
Get out of the way
For me for you for everyone
Forever is tomorrow is today

Shut all the windows
Shut all the doors
I'm keeping it all out of sight
I'm keeping it all
It's mine and mine alone
Corrosion collision
I need a vision
To tear off the cloak of the night
And shatter eyes of stone

You say it can't be done
You'd rather die of fun
Get out of the way
For me for you for everyone
Forever is tomorrow is today
Forever is tomorrow is today
Forever is tomorrow is todayback to top
Folk Song
I have waited the night over
For some word to come
I asked the moon o'er the clover
But the moon she is dumb

You have made me a promise
At midnight we'd go
And that we should be married
Sailing westward ho

Such words you have spoken
You have told me a lie
That it could not be broken
When you knew it must die

There's no light in heaven
My eye can see
That my heart be imprisoned
While the devil go free
Go free

Like honey the ocean
In the morning breeze
I'll take my tears to the water
That the rivers may freeze

There's no light in heaven
Can shine for me
That my heart be imprisoned
While the devil go free
Go free

What folly is beauty
What trick of the skin
Desire it's fancy
And ruin it's whim
Your child within me
And what can I do
My blood fill with needles
That he look like you

There's no light in heaven
My eye can see
That my heart be imprisoned
While the devil go free
My heart be imprisoned
While the devil go free
No light in heaven
No light for meback to top
