all Idlewild lyrics



You Held the World in Your Arms
Every face, even the one you saw yesterday
It looks different today,
Because everythingís changed since yesterday
In every possible way, things seem different today,
Not like yesterday

Is consideration, more like an exception, of consideration?

You held the world in your arms tonight
And what if you held the world in your arms

When youíre secure, do you feel much safer?
When days never change and itís three years later
Itís like your life, hasnít changed and itís three years late
How does it feel to be three years late
and watching your youth drift away?
What seems different seems different today
What seems different seems different today

Is consideration, more like an exception, of consideration?

You held the world in your arms tonight
And what if you held the world in your arms
You held the world in your arms tonight
And what if you held the world in your armsback to top
A Modern Way of Letting Go
Artist: Idlewild
Album : A Remote Part
Submitted by Scott Stinson

Enjoy this song..... Idlewild Are Going To BE Big Very Soon! Mark My Words !!




If I know, what I know, then no one will watch over you
So someone shouldnít really tell me what I want to know
I know, I owe, and I know that matters donít matter as much
As you think they do

You will only be yourself
When you can never be yourself
And you will only be yourself
When you understand what you know

How long, will we go on with a modern way of letting go,
tell me how long will we go on with the modern way of letting you go?

If I know, what I know, losing isnít learning to be lost
Itís learning to know when youíre lost
If I know, what I know,
Iíll want to make the most of what it seems like

You will only be yourself
You can never be yourself
And you will only be yourself
When you understand what you know

How long, will we go on with a modern way of letting you go,
tell me how long will we go on with the modern way of letting you go?back to top
American English
VERSE 1
Songs when they're truth
Are all dedicated to you
In this invisible world
I choose to live in
And if you believe that
Then now I understand
Why words mean so much to you
They'll never be about you
Maybe you're young without youth
Or maybe you're old without
Knowing anything's true
I think you're young without youth

BRIDGE
Then you contract the American dream
You never look up once
You've contracted American dreams
I require you to stop and look up

CHORUS
Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world

VERSE 2
Constantly searching to find something new
But what will you find when you think that nothing's true
Maybe it's that nothing is new
So you let me hear songs that were written all about you
The good songs were written for you
They'll never be about you

BRIDGE
Then you contract the American dream
You never look up once
You've contracted American dreams
You never look up once so don't look up

CHORUS x2

And I won't tell you what this means
Coz you already know
And I won't tell you what this means
Coz you already know so

CHORUS x2*
*on 2nd repitition sing:
"And you came along and found the weak spot
That you've always wanted
Let yourself be everything
That you've always wanted
It doesn't have to be so exciting
As you've always wantedNo need for explanations
You've always wanted" over the chorus*

And you'll find what you find when you find there's nothing x2back to top
I Never Wanted
i created myself to be on my own
but i didnt expect to be alone
did you create yourself to be on your own?
these are the reasons things should be unknown

the days wont let you know
the days wont let you know
that all i ever wanted was to be there with you
all i ever wanted to know anywhere with you

no one creates themself
unless they try to shut out the caution that made them lied to
all this talk but no one will tell me
where and when i need to go

the days wont let you know
the days wont let you know
that all i ever wanted was to be there with you
all i ever wanted to know anywhere with you

there is no reason
there is no reason
there is no reason for that now
there is no reason
there is no reason
there is no reason for that

all i ever wanted was to be there with you
all i ever wanted to know anywhere with you
all i ever wanted was to be there with you
all i ever wanted to know anywhere
ever wanted to know anywhere with youback to top
(I Am) What I Am Not
Calling places, collecting careless
Sentences I write them down
So I ignore them, and you should too, you should ignore every word
Is calling what you can surrender
The only way to really learn
That the alphabet made up the words
You could never resist to quote

If all this wisdom is true
Then I doubt it could really have come from you

Then I am what I am not, I am what I am not
So there must be something more then
If I am just a thought Iím not

Faster than the destination
Of knowing where you really are
Is where youíve always been
Or is it where you began
And happiness, did it happen
Sooner than the doubt it cost you
You learn from the mistakes that I taught you

If all this wisdom is true
Then I doubt it could really have come from you

Then I am what I am not, I am what I am not
So there must be something more then
I am what I am not,
If thereís nothing more then
I am what I am not, I am what I am not
There must be something more then
If I am what I am not

Then I am what I am not, I am what I am not
There must be something more then
I am what I am not,
I know thereís nothing more then
I am what I am not, I am what I am not
I know thereís nothing more then
If I am what I am notback to top
Live in a Hiding Place
there are times that i should try
to be so much more alive
but if time was right then i would be with you again
or do you worry that i try
to avoid the point and then deny
the time i've spent deciding it was you again

it's when i
i live in a hiding place
it's the only way i feel safe
when i'm safe in a hiding place
that's not hidden now
i'm safe in a hiding place
it's the only way i feel safe
when i'm safe in a hiding place

and your full facts were not things that could
add up to words
think about meaning more as an after word

i return but don't remain
i'm impatient for a reason to complain
about winter making me see-through again
or is it your damaged reply
that makes me realise that the more i try
the less that plans will help me comprehend again

so i
i live in a hiding place
it's the only way i feel safe
when i'm safe in a hiding place
thats not hidden now
i'm safe in a hiding place
it's the only way i feel safe
when i'm safe in a hiding place

and your full facts were not things that could add up to words
think about meaning more as an after word
and your full facts were not things that could add up to words
think about meaning more as an after word
as an after wordback to top
Out of Routine
out of routine
and the explanations you have
you're still lothed to give them

all because youve praised it in a way
so the explanations you have
the words do go away

if your heart gets in the way
of what you wanted to deny
everything i say is not uncommon
the only thing that's definately forgoten
is what you wanted and what you really needed

but i can only try to know what i wanted
i will only try to know what i want
if i can only try to know what i wanted
how can it become

out of routine
but its not as bad as you think
it's only chance you're looking for
still in routine
and the explanations you have the ideas go between

if your heart gets in the way
of what you wanted to reply
to everything i say is not uncommon
the only thing that's definately forgoten
is what you wanted and what you really needed

but i can only try to know what i wanted
i will only try to know what i want
if i can only try to know what i wanted
how can it become

and its already blown
and nothing can take it back
its already blown
and nothing can take it so keep holdback to top
Century After Century
since you're breathing
is it all that space can fill
so just by looking in
ill be looking still
(find and follow stories well)
you make it except for
a newspaper
the headline's telling me
that fortune favours the brave
ive never been known to be that brave
what i want is on its way out
all i needed was an easier way to stay
walking around the city
as the light fades
is that all that you remain
i'm thinking about these promises
that i have ever made
i know what they will never say
i know what they will never say

century after century may remain

and if i need to remember
that the entire earth is outside this window
so close the windows
keep the curtains shut forever
and if i need to remember
the entire earth is outside this room
so close the windows
close the windows

isn't it romantic to be romantic
when you dont understand what you love
or if a word like that could ever mean anything
but what you want is on its way out
i didnt hear
cheerleading for creative writers
your cheekbones
dont taste of anything at all
its on its way out
its just an easier way to stay

talking about a city
that the light mades
is it all that you remain
its the same story told
but its these stories that dont fade
i know what they will never say
i know what they will never say

century after century may remain

is it all that you remain
is it all that you remain
is it all that you remain
is it all that you remain
is it all that you remain
(i know what they will never say)
is it all that you remain
(i know what they will never say)
is it all that you remain
(i know what they will never say)
is it all that you remain
(i know what they will never say)
is it all that you remain
is it all that you remainback to top
Stay the Same
it sometimes happens it always happens to me
but then always isnt a word i use
always isnt a word i choose

when i know that this wont survive much longer
unless we alter what we have
but then again survival
its not why we should stay the same
if we cant be the same
we wont stay the same
our similar thoughts will never let us stay the same
if we cant be the same
we wont stay the same
if we retain

you know that i wont be much help to you
if it wont happen the way
that youve always planned it
just so you could become
more interesting this time for a purpose
only now i know the purpose

and i know that what is here will not be here much longer unless
we alter what we have
or alter what we dont have
what we wont have, what weve never seem to have
what we try to have, we fail to have
and all of this just so we wont stay the same
if we cant be the same
we wont stay the same
our similar thoughts will never let us stay the same
if we cant be the same
we wont stay the same
just because we think we are the same

just so we wont stay the same
if we cant be the same
we wont stay the same
when we believe we are not the sameback to top
