all Oleander lyrics



Come to Stay
If you're sad and mad
But glad to be away and free
From all the pain you've known
Inside you feel you've grown
If you take your time
With every leap of faith you'll find
It's easier to grow
With every step you know
Come to stay or stay away
Come to stay or stay away

If you take too long
pretending that there's nothing wrong
Don't waste my time 'cause I'll be fine
Either way you'll see
That who we are what will be
In the end it's time to show
Step up and let me know

Come to stay or away
Come to stay or away
I hope that you can see
Nobody loves you more than me
Come to stay or stay away
Away
Away
Away

While distance grows between us
Every step you take away you take a piece of me

If you say so long
Pretending that there's something wrong
It's all for naught
'Cause I forgot

If in time you find
The only leap of faith was mine
Is it easier to go
Or say we'll never know

Come to stay or stay away
Come to stay or stay away
I hope that you can see
Nobody loves you more than me
Come to stay or stay away
Away

Yours if You Like
Caught a glimpse and like a fool I let her in
Consequently I discovered there's no end
Open your eyes
And try to grow into your size
And all and always try to realize

Where you are
And what you want
'Cause it's yours if you like

Caught a glimpse and like a fool I let her in
Hard to tell why like a fool I let her win

Open your eyes
And try to grow into your size
And all and always try to realize

Where you are
And what you want
'Cause it's yours if you like
Where you are
And what you want
'Cause it's yours if you like

Open your eyes
And try to grow into your size
And all and always try to realize
And all and always try to realizeback to top
Are You There?
When I feel too far away
From where I want to be
There's nothing left for me, yeah
When I feel too close to breathe
Like a baby cutting teeth
In you I find relief

'cause when it's more than I can take
I pushed and pulled to break
A sucker for a saint in your eyes
Criticism comes in waves
Numbering our days
But only you can save me

Is anybody even there
Who doesn't just pretend to care
This time I need to know - are you there?
Does anybody think they can
Begin to even understand
This time I need to know - are you there?

Hang on, hang on
I know, I know

It's the lie that we believe
A truth that we conceive
That lies inside of me
When I leave it all behind
Something hypnotized
The moment that it's mine

Is anybody even there
Who doesn't just pretend to care
This time I need to know - are you there?
Does anybody think they can
Begin to even understand
This time I need to know - are you there?

Is anybody even there?
Who doesn't just pretend to care
This time I need to know - are you there?
Does anybody think they can
Begin to even understand
This time I need to know - are you there?back to top
Halo
And it's always little things
That to the surface brings
The comfort in the pain
The fear behind the smile
We lose along the way
The things we leave behind
Along the precipice
Of things we should not climb
And I'm the first in line
There's an anchor around my heart
Dragging me down
Beneath the waves in silence I fall
There's a halo above my head
Spinning me 'round
'cause I don't know if I'm alive or dead
A dagger in my hand
Bleeding me dry

And it's always little things
That to the surface brings
The space you need to breathe
Before the curtain call
The light that leads the way
Before you hit the wall
The mountain that you climb
Just to take a fall
For blind among the blind

There's an anchor around my heart
Dragging me down
Beneath the waves in silence I fall
There's a halo above my head
Spinning me 'round
'cause I don't know if I'm alive or dead

There's a dagger in my hand
Bleeding me dry

And all we have to lose is time
And what lose we leave behind
Stay around and we will shineback to top
Benign
Would it be so hard for you
To state just for the record
That you've done your best to do nothing at all
And that you stood around
And watched from every corner
As everyone around you hit the ground
Would it tear you up inside
To take on the reflection
Of everyone around you that you know
Instead of getting by
With lying and deception
Of everyone around you letting go

All of this time
It's been benign

Only heaven knows
Only heaven shows the way
Back to everything you know and love
Only heaven knows
Only heaven shows the way
Back to everything you know and love
Everything you know and love
Everything you know and love
Back to everything you know and
All of this time
It's been benign

Would it be so hard for you
To state just for the moment
That you've done your best to do nothing at all
And that you stood around
And wallowed in your splendor
As everyone around you hit the ground

All of this time
It's been benign

Only heaven knows
Only heaven shows the way
Back to everything you know and love
Only heaven knows
Only heaven shows the way
Back to everything you know and love
Everything you know and love
Everything you know and love
Back to everything you know and
Everything you know and love
Everything you know and love

Evolution's overwhelming
Check your head this train is wrecking
In time

Everyone just take it easy
I don't like the way you're looking at me

Goodbye
Anything that you want
Anything that you need
Anything that you haven't gotten yet
That you want from me
Everything that you are
And everything that you thought you wanted
Everything that you're not supposed to want
You want from me
You don't need to understand
Just give in to the band
When it's slipping through my hands

And it's more than I can take
It's just about to break
All these feelings that we fake
Goodbye

Everyone that you know
Everywhere that you go - you see them
Every feeling that you try to hide inside begins to show

You don't need to understand
Just give in to the band
When it's slipping through my hands

And it's more than I can take
It's just about to break
And these feelings that we fake
On this roller coaster ride
It's going to collide
With those secrets that we hide
Goodbye

And it's more than I can take
It's just about to break
All these feelings that we fake

On this roller coaster ride
It's going to collide
With those secrets that we hide

Come on
Everyone
Grab a gun
Run
Oh yeah
But try not to be yellow
Surrender to me
Say you will
Say that you will
Yeah but try not to be yellow
Oh yeah but try not to be yellow
'cause nobody likes it when you are

You came
And you went
Went away
All in one day
Now your mama's cryin'

I know
In the end
We'll be together again
Yeah but only if we're lucky
Oh yeah but only if we're lucky
Oh yeah but only if we are

Every night I wonder why
Why now
Every night I wonder why
Why now
Every night I wonder why
Why now

We sat around together
Talked about how much we love you

And how much we'll miss you
We sit around together
Talk about how much we love you
And how much we'll miss you
And now we stick together
Livin' with the love you've given
I know that you would want this

Every night I wonder why

Back Home Years Ago
Summer of love came and it went
We played with our lives before they were spent
We were young and unafraid
So alive together
We gave ourselves to giving in
And separated from within
Our only fear was growing old
We swore that we would never

And I remember how it used to be
Oh I remember you were here with me

Summer of love came and was gone
'cause we lifted up and tried to hold on
To memories of what we were
The times we shared were golden

And I remember how it used to be
Oh I remember you were here with me
I remember cold novembers
And when we used to laugh together
And I remember you

Here in my life
You were always
Here in my arms
You were always
Here in my heart
Those days are still alive

I remember cold novembers
And when we used to laugh together
And I remember

And I remember you
And I remember youback to top
Tightrope
Can't find yourself
If you're lost in a crowd
Can't hear advice
If you're screaming out loud
For someone please listen to me
Can't figure out
What you don't understand
Can't realize
What you don't comprehend
But it's always
Been plain to see
But if you run
Too far away
Oh if you run
Don't be afraid

It's just a tightrope
Walker on fire
Razorblade wire
It's a high hope
That you acquire
It's a tightrope
Razorblade wire

Can't say hello
If you're never around
Can't pace yourself
If you never slow down
'cause your always
Running full speed
Can't take too much
If you don't let them in
Can't feel the touch
Of a life within
If you're always

Fulfilling the need

But if you run
Too far away
Oh if you run
Don't be afraid

It's just a tightrope
Walker on fire
It's a tightrope
Razorblade wire
It's a high hope
That you acquire
It's a tightrope
Of razorblade wire

Oh if you run
Too far away
Oh if you run
Don't be afraid

It's just a tightrope
Walker on fire
It's a tightrope
Razorblade wire
It's a high hope

She's Up, She's Down
It's easier to fall
When there's someone there to break it
It's easy to abuse
When there's someone there to take it
It's easier to smile
When you know that you can fake it
Confronted all the while with everything that you've forsaken
And the hardest thing to do
Is letting go of you
Three weeks and seven days...
She's up, she's down, I'm all around - on my way down
She's up, she's down, I'm on my way out
She's up, she's down, I'm on the ground
I'm all around
On my way out
She's up, she's down, I'm all around
Around, around

It's easier to cry
When there's someone there to hold you
Who hasn't had a chance to know
The bitter and the cold you
It's easier to lie
When there's no one there to scold you
Systematically discarding everyone who knows you
And the hardest thing to do
Is letting go of you

Three weeks and seven days...
She's up, she's down, I'm all around - on my way down
She's up, she's down, I'm on my way out
She's up, she's down I'm on the ground
I'm all around
On my way out
She's up, she's down, I'm all around
Around - aroundback to top
