Glittering Clouds

I'm not always like this
It's something I become
A terrible weakness
In my nature, in my blood

Save me, oh save me
Save me from myself
Before I hurt somebody else again

Domino motion
Jump starts when we touch
The black out approaching
Here it comes now, wish me luck

It's all over, it's all over
It's all over in a flash
I can't remember
What have I done now

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Oh, my head hurts
Oh dear, oh dear

It's all over the papers
On the TV, waging tongues.
The artist's impression
Looks just like me, only better

Don't blame me, don't maim me
I can't help what I am

Oh lord knows I’ve tried to

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Go go faster wider
And more more get it down
Your dance dance take me over
Glittering clouds

Glittering clouds
Glittering clouds

Go
More
Dance
Clear the Area

Knock, knock
Are you alone?
No one's out here and I was not followed
Love, love
You're already home
Party's over and you
Don't look so good

You find your way back down
And I'll keep the area clear
(Please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here
(Right here, right here)

Low light
Mercury morning
No need to stay as it's always nothing
But your eyes tell a whole other story
And I feel the weight of the world
Won't talk
You won't try
Just move
It's too still in your sadness
Cry
Give up
It's OK
You've just got to trust me

You find your way back down
And I'll keep the area clear
(Please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here
(Right here, right here)

Slowly
Darling
Nobody means anymore to me than you
If you're in
Baby then I'm in
Into this
With you, always
Careful
Close to the edge
(You're scaring me)
Fall in to my arms
Away with it all
Fall into love
Love
Love

You find your way back down
And I'll keep the area clear
(Please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here
(Right here, right here)

You find your way back down
(Way back down)
And I'll keep the area clear
(So please clear the area)
When you find your way back down
In one piece
Then I'll just be waiting here
Right here
(Right here, right here)
Hide and Seek

Where are we
What the hell is going on
The dust has only just began to fall
Crop circles in the carpet, sinking, feeling
Spin me around again and rub my eyes
This can't be happening
When busy streets a mess with people would stop to hold their heads heavy

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines?
All those years they were here first

Oily marks appear on walls
Where pleasue moments hung before
The takeover, the sweeping insensitivity of this
Still life

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines
Oh, you won't catch me around here
Blood and tears they were here first

Hmm what you say
Oh that you only meant well, well of course you did
Hmm what you say
Hmm that it's all for the best, of course it is
Hmm what you say
That it's just what we need, you decided this
Hmm what you say
What did she say

Ransom notes keep falling at your mouth
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs
Speak no feeling no i don't believe you
You don't care a bit you don't care a bit

You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
Loose Ends

Doing everything by halves
You got a real flare with excuses
Meeting someone at the bar
Where loose ends still have uses

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)
So what you say
We give it up and walk away?
We're overrated, anyway

We're kissing without kissing
And got it down to a fine art
Love's supposed to keep you young and frisky,
But we grew up and wide apart
Not now, not ever, no
It's never a good time
How will the good times ever roll on?
Comparing photos
Then and now
Now and then
Just wondering
Where it all went wrong

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)
So what you say
We give it up and walk away?
Nothing to salvage anyway

Want to, oh
Need to, oh
Try to, oh
None of the above
Want to, oh
Need to, oh
Try to, oh
None of the above
Want to, oh
Need to, oh
Try to, oh
None of the above
Liar

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)
So what you say
We give it up and walk away?
We're overrated, anyway

It's complicated
(This time I think it could be)
Triangulated
(It could be just what we need)
So what you say
We give it up and walk away?
Nothing to salvage anyway
Have You Got It in You?

It takes a lot
To be always on form
It takes a lot
I maybe not
All the time
All I've got
Maybe not

Been one of those days,
(To get in, to get in, to get in)
Safety first don't push
What's the hurry?
(To get in, to get in, to get in)
One nerve remaining
Waiting on one look, have you got it?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?

All at once
Not a whisper nor word
Then all at once

Let me have it all
Let me have a battle on
Easy target look
Can we just, just get it over with?
It's getting worse, against all the odds,
It's getting worse

Guard down
Floor's yours
Last man standing
Can we just get it over with?

Been one of those days
Safety first don't push
(Don't push me)
What's the hurry?
Cause there's one nerve remaining
Waiting on one look
Have you got it?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?

Blue, blue, day make me blue
Head down, quick
Take cover, big girl in a mood
Blue you, make me anymore blue
Long spin, shout
Power clean
Right out of your suit

Been one of those days,
Safety first don't push
What's the hurry?
One nerve remaining
Waiting on one look
Have you got it?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?
Have you got it in you?

Goodnight and Go

Say goodnight and go

Skipping beats
Blushing cheeks
I am struggling
Daydreaming
Bed scenes in
The corner cafe
And then i'm left in bits
Recovering tectonic
Tremblings
You get me every time

Why do you have to be so cute
It's impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It's bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

Follow you home
You've got your headphones on
And you're dancing
Got lucky, beautiful shot
You taking everything off
Watch the curtains wide open
Then you fall in the same routine
Flicking through the TV
Relaxed and reclining
And you think you're alone

Oh why do you have to be so cute
It's impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It's bad enough we get along so well
Say goodnight and go

One of these days
You'll miss your train
And come stay with me
Say goodnight and go
We'll have drinks
And talk about things
Any excuse to stay awake with you
You'll sleep here
I'll sleep there
But then the heating may be down again
At my convenience
We'd be good
We'd be great together

Why do you have to be so cute
It's impossible to ignore you
Must you make me laugh so much
It's bad enough we get along so well

Say goodnight and go
Why's it always always
Goodnight and go
Oh darling not again
Goodnight and go

ELLIPSE



Headlock

Distant flickering
Greener scenery
This weather's bringing it all back again
Great adventures
Faces in condensation
I'm going outside and take it all in

You say too late to start
Got your heart in a headlock
I don't believe any of it
You say too late to start
With your heart in a headlock
You know you're better than this

Wear a different pair
Do something out of step
Throw a stranger an unexpected smile
With big intentio
Still posted at your station
Always on about the day it should have flied

You say too late to start
Got your heart in a headlock
I don't believe any of it
You say too late to start
With your heart in a headlock
You know you're better than this

Afraid to start
(How can you lose?)
Got your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
I don't believe any of it
(How can you lose?)
You say too late to start
(How can you lose?)
With your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
You know you're better than this

You've been walking
You've been hiding
And you look half-dead half the time
Monitoring you, like machines do
You've still got it
I'm just keeping an eye

You say too late to start
Got your heart in a headlock
I don't believe any of it
You say too late to start
With your heart in a headlock
You know you're better than this

Afraid to start
(How can you lose?)
Got your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
I don't believe any of it
(How can you lose?)
You say too late to start
(How can you lose?)
With your heart in a headlock
(How can you lose?)
You know you're better than this
