Love Steals Us from Loneliness
wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

Every step takes a beat of your heart
through a city that's falling apart
on a night that rises and clears
in a sky that's clouded by years
my anger is a form of madness
and so I’d rather have hope than sadness

You said something
you said something stupid like
love steals us from loneliness
happy birthday
are you lonely yet

I misplaced your face in the shape of a smile
on a night that could never surprise me
so don’t tell me you're afraid of the past
it's only the future that didn't last
you're kidding yourself, kidding yourself
you're going nowhere
and you're going there fast

You said something
you said something stupid like
love steals us from loneliness
happy birthday
are you lonely yet

You said something
you said something stupid like
love won't shield us from loneliness
happy birthday

wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

wooohoooOOOoohhoohhoh

You said something
you said something stupid like
love steals us from loneliness
happy birthday
are you lonely yet
are you lonely yet
are you lonely yet
are you lonely yetback to top
Welcome Home
I go outside to find the middle of nowhere,
everyone needs their own empty stage,
just like the sky with no beginning or ending,
or like reading a book without a last page,

Stop and turn around and say it with your eyes closed,
you don't need to welcome me home,
stop turn around and try looking with your eyes wide open,

As we live our lives through a series of glances,
and you smile without smiling for a whole another year,
I think we need a little more understanding,
I think the future is already here,
so I wont ask you to..

Stop and turn around and say it with your eyes closed,
you don't need to welcome me home,
stop and turn around and try looking with your eyes wide open,

Welcome hooOOohome
Welcome hooOOohome

Welcome hooOOohome
Welcome hooOOohome

I Want a Warning
History is made not repeated,
and you hide behind words that make you feel needed,
and what you read in those books made you so conceited,
so in order for love to be true,
my dreams will have to,
become my only rules,

I want a warning,
I want a warning,
I want something more than a warning,

I've been warned about you,
I'll see through all your promises and warnings,

I want a warning,
I want a warning,
I want something more than a warning,

I've been warned about you,
I'll see through all your promises and warnings,

Wake me up on into a world outdated,
and the older you get the more you see jaded,
as you search for the quotes to make you seem complicated,
so in order for love to be true,
even my nightmares,
become my only rules,

I want a warning,
I want a warning,
I want something more than a warning,

I've been warned about you,
I'll see through all your promises and warnings,

I want a warning,
I want a warning,
I want something more than a warning,

I've been warned about you,
I've seen through every promise is a warning

I want a warning,
I want a warning,
I want something more than a warning,
I've been warned about you,
I've seen through all your promises and warnings,

I want a warning,
I want a warning,
I want something more than a warning,

I've been warned about you,
I'll seen through for the promise and warningback to top
I Understand It
Artist/Band – Idlewild
Album – Warnings/Promises
Song – I Understand It

Mountains wouldn’t part for me,
They have no uncertainty,
I’m just a passing… emotion,
Just hoping they take notice,
And you are an opportunity,
Without an opportunity,
Another passing… emotion,
In hope that someone will take notice,
And did I hear you sing,
That we exist without existing,
Or did I hear you sing,
Then we’ll end where we begin,

I understand it but I don’t show it,
So I won’t think it and maybe we’ll be there,
Maybe we will be there,
I understand it but I don’t show it,
So I won’t think it and maybe we’ll be there,
And maybe one day we will be there,
Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,

I thought I heard you say,
That I must be disappearing,
But I’m sure I heard you sing,
We won’t begin,

I understand it but I don’t show it,
So I won’t think it and maybe we’ll be there,
Maybe we will be there,
I understand it but I don’t show it,
So I won’t think it and maybe we’ll be there,
And maybe one day we will be there,
Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,

To have no sense in emptiness will you try a little harder, (Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
To have no sense in emptiness will you try, try, try a little harder, (Oh… oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)back to top
As If I Hadn't Slept
It's always 3am in your world,
so I'm drinking this as if I hadn't slept,
telling stories which tell their stories them self,
you didn't even hear them,
our thoughts are somewhere else,

As long as I go somewhere we'll see still be trying to see,
as long as I go somewhere we'll still be trying,
as long as I go somewhere we'll still be lying to me,
as long as I go somewhere,

If you're so sure that you don't need love,
only it's as if I hadn't slept,
as laughter smiles back in your direction,
but you're protected by the smoke from your cigarette,
then you try,
to hold my hand,
under the table,
but it's far to vague to be meaningful,

As long as I go somewhere we'll still be trying to see,
as long as I go somewhere every night has a hold over me
as long as I go somewhere we'll still be lying to me,
as long as I go somewhere,

And you held me like I was a shadow,
but completely without any mystery,
and you compared me to a shadow,
which in it's self is some kind of victory,

Ohhhhh ohhhOOhhh ohhohhohh,
Ohhhhh ohhhOOhhh ohhohhohh,
Ohhhhh ohhhOOhhh ohhohhohh,

Too Long Awake
Everything's always changing,
and nothing stays in the same place for too long,
I've been too long awake,
and everyone seems like they're slowly changing,
no one stays in the same place for too long,
I've been too long awake,

Together we're younger than you are,
forever we're older than we are together,
if we had so much to do,

Together we're younger than you are,
forever we're older than we are togetherback to top
Not Just Sometimes But Always
There is a long forgotten voice,
I know it's not your voice,
because it's always strained,
I wake up hearing unfamiliar voices,
convinced they're trying to explain,
that if my words were clearer,
then maybe I would know what I'm trying to say,
just as those long forgotten voices,
disappear back into rain,

If I was born the same day that you die,
should that make me try,
I was born the same day that you die,
should that make me feel more alive,
Not just sometimes but always,
I know what I know,
I know what I know,
I know what I know,

I tune the radio,
to drown out these voices I don't know,
and suddenly an empty house,
it almost fills up with hope,
there are days and nights when,
I don't need to close my eyes,
and they feel as real to me,
like an elegy in the skies,

If I was born the same day that you die,
should that make me try,
I was born the same day that you die,
should that make me feel more alive,
not just sometimes but always,
I know what I know,
I know what I know,
I know what I know,
not just sometimes but always,
I know what I know,
I know what I know,
I know what I knowback to top
The Space Between All Things
All the walls of your house,
were painted in deep blue,
you're at that indecisive age to choose colours that reflect you,
and everything and nothing,
is in the space between all things,
that fascinates as much as it agitates,
words turn me into what I say,
as you pull your yellow stained fingers,
through your un-kept hair,
I noticed that the corners of your jeans,
were folded neatly into squares,
your thoughts are the strangest place that you've ever been,
stranger even than Los Angeles,
it's like a cinema where they never ask you to leave,

So while you wait and are you wait,
and concentrate on being as far away,
from fate so while you wait,
and concentrate on being as far away,

She had a north Atlantic film star grace,
that's why her tears are out of place,
that kind sadness has more style,
so nothing will make her smile,
except as soon as anything happens,
she'll drag me on the street,
and hand in hand we stand protesting,
while everyone is still asleep,

So while you wait and are you wait,
and concentrate on being as far away,
from fate so while you wait,
and concentrate on being as far away,

so while you wait and are you wait,
and concentrate on being as far away,
from fate so while you wait,
and concentrate on being as far away,

Are you wait,
are you wait,
are you wait,
are you waaait,back to top
El Capitan
By the harbour I harbour the strangest memories,
over land I could ever be,
stranded in nostalgia,
so tonight I’ll try harder,
but it's hard to fix this floodlight on me,
in a cast that's taken to places,
I’m unsure of where I want to be,

Stand up,
stand up,
and stand down,
I’ll climb El Capitan,
and jump off to cheers from the crowd,

Stand up,
stand up,
and stand down,
and I hope you take your camera,
to photograph my tears as they hit the ground,

No one even listens,
the same way that no one ever laughs,
i'm taking the car out of the snow,
i'm wondering where the summer went to,
circled by your secrets,
i'm hoping they don't include me,
at least i'm in good company,
because there's no one else around,
except me,

Stand up,
stand up,
and stand down,
I’ll climb El Capitan,
just to watch the world slow down,

Stand up,
stand up,
and stand down,
and I hope you take your camera,
silence makes the loudest tap,

It seems far too easy to say the same things,
I’ll choose my own way to use my life up,
finally found a new way,
say the same things,
in imaginary ways,
I’ll use my life up,

You were looking at pictures in the distance,
hoping to see the future in your pictures,
of the distance hoping to see,
the future looking at pictures in the distance,
hoping to see the future through your pictures,
of the distance,
hoping to see,
the future in your pictures of the distanceback to top
Disconnected
I watch you stumble through the morning,
I watch you stumble home at night,
silhouetted by a sun without sunlight,
I've watched you walk straight through an evening,
when you're laden with the day,
and the light of the moon,
it only gets in your way,

From a bedroom window I was anyone,
and the street I look upon,
was my run away,

But I'm connected to the places I don't feel connected from,
I'm connected to the place that I don't,
feel like I'm from,

This is the kind of town where everyone knows each other,
and everyone hates that they know each other,
and no one's getting any younger,

From a bedroom window I was anyone,
every street I look upon,
could be run away,

But I'm connected to the places I don't feel connected from,
I'm connected to the places I don't feel like I'm from,

I'm connected to the places I don't feel connected from,
I don't feel connected from,

OhhhOohh,

Don't belong here now,
You don't belong here now,
You don't belong,
you'll never belong,
you don't belong here now,
you don't belong here now,
you don't belong here now,
you don't belong,
you'll never belong,
you don't belong here noooOOowwwback to top
Goodnight
OooooOOOooohhh,
OooooOOOooohhh,
OooooOOOooohhh,
OooooOOOooohhh,

You thought shyness was to blame,
and you'd get to live your again,
when you get to wish everyone goodnight,

As the crowd booed out your name,
at least they spelt it right,
so you don't complain why everyone,
is wishing you goodnight,

And maybe I'm wrong,
and maybe you're right,
but I thought I was the only one,
who can say goodnight,

It's your heroes who are to blame,
constantly saying things that they don't explain,
well that's too bad,
but I still can't say goodnight
and I just can't stay tonight,
I woke up saying goodnight,
