LYRICS

Quando La Cittá Dorme

Quando tutto si ferma
La luna ci chiama dal mare
Insieme per un momento infinito
É giunto il momento di ballare

Quando la cittá dorme
Noi balliamo nella notte
Stasera e per sempre

Quando il sole sorgerà
La nostra danza finirà
Ora ritorniamo in segreto
Solo per continuare a fingere

Quando la cittá dorme
Noi balliamo nella notte
Stasera e per sempre

Aspetta, ti tengo stretto

Quando la cittá dorme
Noi balliamo nella notte
Stasera e per sempre

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
When everything stops
The moon calls us over the sea
Together for a moment that lasts forever
The time has come to dance

When the city sleeps
We dance in the night
Tonight and forever

When the sun rises
Our dance will end
We now return in secret
Only to continue to pretend)

When the city sleeps
We dance in the night
Tonight and forever

Wait, I’ll hold you tight

When the city sleeps
We dance in the night
Tonight and forever

 

 

Abducted

I look up
In a blink of an eye
There’s a shape in the sky
I thought that this was a lie

They wait
Until I lay down to sleep
I hear the floorboards creek
I think they’re ready for me

CHORUS:
Past the moon and stars
There’s a whole other galaxy
Waiting for you and me
So come on

Only fools will say
We’re alone in the universe
There’s nothing beyond this earth
But come on

Big eyes
And a cowboy smile
I can’t keep track of the time
When he’s reading my mind

We leave
With out a trace
Flying up to his place
In west outer space

CHORUS

As I wake
Thinking it was a dream
Or had I seen the unseen
Well hell, I’m wearing his ring

For now
I’m the joke of the town
But while they’re putting me down
He’s out there making the rounds

CHORUS

 

 

Fables

Fables and our lies
Humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries

Out here it is getting hot, dear
Did I ever love you?
Think about it.
Thirsty, wild, weak and willing
I prepared to love you
Didn’t happen.

Oooo Oooo

I ran to the lonesome desert
To escape the coldness I created.
But the heat waves visions in the dust, babe
Memories of heartache has me silent.

Fables and our lies
Humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries

Why don’t I plan me a visit
Come see how your doin’
Would you mind that?
That’ll give me just enough time
To sink back in your mind as I’m leavin’

Oooo Oooo

Though I rose up in your eastern sky
It’s to the west, I’ll be settin’
Don’t get down, it’s just how I am wound
I don’t belong where I’m needed

Fables and our lies
Our humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries

What you said, what you said you’d be (You said darlin’)
When you said you weren’t good for me
What you said, what you said you’d be (What did you mean?)
When you said it, you set me free
Ooooo Ooooo Ooooo

Fables and our lies
Humble little tries
Broken drawn out cries

 

Yer Gonna Be (My Lovin’ Man) 

I ran into you again today
You’d think I’d have something more clever to say
Cause you don’t know, you don’t know the way I see you
It’s a silent dizzy thing
But who knows, who knows
Perhaps the same thought crossed your mind
I wonder how many more times it will take
For me to go out on the line and say

You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
And I’m gonna be your lovin’ woman baby
Doo doo doo
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
You’re gonna be my lovin’ man
And I’m gonna be your lovin’ woman baby
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo

No one compares with you
You’re so pure and oh so true
Well I admire all that you do
And I just wanna be close to you, oh
So pardon my longing gaze
But I’m sure this is so far from a phase
It seems our paths align our fate
And so I think it’s time we get this all straight

CHORUS

 

Sly Stranger 

The fox said to the crow, “Pretty bird, sing me your new song”
So “falalalala lalala”
Lesson learned, don’t trust a flatterer
Never a flatterer
They’re out for your bread, your bed, maybe your head

Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no

The fox fell in a well, but he did not ask for help, no
He’s too smart, much too smart
So the fox said to the goat, “Soon there’ll be a drought”
Without a doubt, that fool jumped down
That fool came down

Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Oh Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no

And in the skin of a sheep, the fox did creep
Strolled with the herd, never said no word
But soon he did attack
He stabbed them in the back
Looks deceive, be slow to believe

In Sly Strangers, don’t trust em, no
Oh Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no

Everyday they are waiting for you
If you look away, they will take it from you
Don’t trust the fox that knocks
Don’t trust the fox who’s knocking at your door
He’s at your door

Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Oh Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no
Sly Stranger, don’t trust em, no

 

Treat Her

Oh take time for your lady
Hold the door for your girl
Make surprises for that lady
Even if she’s easy to please

Don’t walk in front of your lady
You don’t know what’s creepin’ up behind
Most of all just love your lady
And make her laugh when the day is done

Honey pie, sure you’re nice, but if you want her don’t drive her crazy
Just treat her like a lady
You’re the apple of her eye, but all she does is cry
Don’t be so lazy, just treat her like a lady

Well maybe you’ll find that she’s gone, walked out of your life
In the arms of another, but maybe before she’s gone, walked out the door
You’ll learn to treat her right

Oh, treat her right, oh you know you gotta treat her, treat her right
Treat her right, oh you know you gotta treat her, treat her right baby
Treat her right

So take the time to tell your lady
You’ll be the rock upon her shore
Cause when you really love a lady
The life you lead will mean so much more

 

Hometown

There’s plenty of room for dreamin’
As you’re starin’ across an empty field
It makes it hard to settle
When you feel there’s something more

I won’t need a map or any road sign
To get me where I’m goin’
I know I’ll find the way
I hear it callin’ for me, singin’ out my name

CHORUS
Do you choose your hometown?
Or does it choose you?
Will you find the place that makes you feel brand new?
It’s where you fit right in
Where you belong
Cause when you feel at home, you can’t go wrong
Well it needs me and I need my hometown

Some call their house their home
Some call their heart their home
Some call family, or friends, or dogs
Some call their car their home the road, or the air
Well where’s your home?
What makes your home?
You choose your own PO Box, your own postal code
It’s your hometown

CHORUS

 

Rock Bottom 

Sophie says she’s lonely
Derek, he is broke
Jill and Tommy ain’t got no mommy
And Maria she has no hope

John and Lea got married
Oh so typically June
Lea walked in to find Josie with him
And now it’s August and they are through

CHORUS
We’ve all problems see
And we’ve all had therapy
We’ve hit rock bottom multiple times
And still find ourself at the back of the line

Ricky woke up in the same clothes
He’s worn for weeks in a row
His brother Cleo stole all of his doe
And now he stumbles down Nolensville Road

Lisa, she’s hearing the voices
And claims that the government knows
She writes them a letter to say that she’s better
And tells them that they need to go

CHORUS

 

Open Roads

Turning my head, lookin’ every direction
No, I never needed your lousy protection
I close my eyes and I run, I run, I run
No one will find me coming undone

Oh Ohhh Oh Oh Ohhh

No matter how much time you’ve killed, you claim to know me still
But you never did, no, you never did oh and you never will
So I’m cuttin’ down all the limbs that kept me reachin’ for you
Kept me feelin’ so blue, kept you so untrue

Oh Ohhh Oh Oh Ohhh

Now I can’t recall just how I felt at all
Oh no I can’t recall just how I felt at all
Oh no I can’t recall how I felt, I felt at all

Ohhh Open Roads, Ohh

Open roads, open roads for the willing
It’s all a test, you gotta trust what you’re feeling
Oh open roads, open roads for the searching
Go on ahead, you best get to looking
For those open roads, ohhh
They’ll never tie you down, They’ll never tie you down
They’ll never tie you down, They’ll never tie you down

 

Take Me To The Country

Tell me ‘bout the good times that came before
How the world was booming when you got back from war
You lived out in the country, never locked the door
And no one feared their brother, cause God fed the poor

How many revolutions does it take to make a change?
How many changes will be enough for this revolving game?
I told you once and I tell you twice, there’s more bad than good
Cause we’re heavy at the top, when the guns don’t stop
The choice ain’t choice yours, no the choice ain’t yours
The choice ain’t yours

How am I to survive in city life with all their lights and all their lies and
I will survive on the country side with my apple pies and blue skies

If you take me, I will take you (I will take you)
If you take me, I will take you (I will take you)
If you take me, I will take you

Take me to the country, throw me back in time
Take me to the country, I’ve got a simpler time in mind

How am I to survive in city life with all their lights and all their lies and
I will survive on the country side with my apple pies and blue skies

Fragile Forest

Out to the ridge of the greenest hill
I cross your path and I smile until
You go home, You go home

Oh, fragile forest shine fast your light
And break me down when there’s no one else in sight
I find him here in the quietest hour, only here in this hour

Whisper your secret of trusting spring to come
The green will spread like wildfire, it understands the sun
No question there, no question there

I ask you blow the memory that I have not quite lived
Pray send it through these trees so that I may sweetly give
All that I am in the calm of a morning, all that I am in the darkness of night

Deep in these hills are where I intend to stay
I’ll live in your moment to breathe in the day
Fair is the air with the thought of you there
So fair the air with the thought of you there

____________________________________________

Steady Rhythm

Play me the rhythm of your Indian drum
It makes my heart beat so, unlike anything I’ve ever known
Uh oh, woah oh
As I flow and dance, catching the sound in the air
I feel that cool, cool sweat drip down, yeah I’m so refreshed
Woah oh, woah oh

It may be hollow
But there’s depth in the pulse of us
And yeah I’d follow
That steady rhythm
Only played by you

It pulls me in, pulls me in, pulls me even closer in
And it makes me move, it makes me move,
And It’s all I hear, all I hear, all I ever dreamed
All I ever dreamed to hear

It may be hollow
But there’s depth in the pulse of us
And yeah I’d follow
That steady rhythm
Only played by you

 

Oblivion

Mademoiselle,
Forgive, remember the spell
That had your focus locked down

Don’t fall on the sword
Honor, you cannot afford
Peel back a layer or two

Oblivion, Samsara, Nirvana
Desire is final, so blissful
To let it all go
You’re conscious and you know
It’s oblivion, oblivion

Come in from the cold
Take off your coat, don’t it get old
Quit your debating of what is right
And all of your fast thoughts
Drift far to places
Where gravity can’t close your mind

Oblivion, Samsara, Nirvana
Desire is final, so blissful
To let it all go
You’re conscious and you know
It’s oblivion, oblivion
Samsara, Nirvana, Oblivion
Samsara, Nirvana, Oblivion
Oblivion …

Battled Feet

These shoes don’t fit me
More soars turn to scars
What’s funny is, dear
That’s just the way we are

Ya see, my battled feet don’t make me cry
I’d rather have high heels than an idiot guy
You wore me out, wore me out, wore me out…

I get more pleasure
From nursing these wounds
The bleeding scabs
Beat ever loving you

Ya see, my battled feet don’t make me cry
I’d rather have high heels than an idiot guy

So I’ll lace them up tight
And walk it off
One can’t burn bridges
Being so soft

Ya see, my battled feet don’t make me cry
I’d rather have high heels than an idiot guy
You wore me out, wore me out, wore me out…

 

Wallflower

Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh
Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh …

She doesn’t say much
Wears her skirt past her knees
And she could care less
About the birds and the bees

But those barking dogs
Won’t let her sleep
Yeah she gets the itch
And the fire at her feet

And she goes, she grows and goes
Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh
Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh …

She shapes her story
Sees her life through a lens
Don’t search for meaning
That’d lack common sense

There’s no recipe
To get this right
Yes, things happen fast
Well, over night

So she goes, she grows and goes
Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh
Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh …

Well there’s a flicker
In that wallflower’s eyes
And if you feed fire
Well, she might just give it a try
She’s got pockets full of heavy sand
That she’s carried from that far distant land she goes

She grows and goes
Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh
Woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh, woah-di-ho-oh …

 

No Vacancy

Well you’ve been here for hours
Aren’t you convinced I’m not yours
Aren’t you just tired of waiting
Waiting all of this time?

So why are you standing there
Please just leave
I don’t want you here
My mind isn’t changing, won’t let you in

Cause there’s no vacancy
Here at all, no vacancy
In this heart, no vacancy
None at all
No vacancy here at all, no vacancy
In these arms, no vacancy
None at all

Hey listen you should thank me
For warning you now, you will see
I’m not the kind of girl
You pictured me to be
But it was great while it lasted
And I know you’ll get past this
There’s so much more to life
We both need to breathe

And there’s no vacancy
Here at all, no vacancy
In this heart, no vacancy
None at all
No vacancy here at all, no vacancy
In these arms, no vacancy
None at all
No, no, no, no, no vacancy….
No vacancy
Here at all, no vacancy
In this heart, no vacancy
None at all

 

Let Life Happen

You’re pacing up and down, all around
Exhausting all your thoughts
Needing answers
You only know one corner of the room
And what you thought was great
Gets much greater when you wait

Ooh … let it happen
Ooh … let life happen

Alone, no plans, it’s unknown
Live out this mystery
Patiently
It’s raw, it’s real, this disease
Let it grow full within
Develop it

Ooh … let it happen
Ooh … let life happen

And in these quiet days, control the doubts that makes you scream
And let that motion wave you right on where you belong
And gradually… it will happen

Let it happen
Ooh … let it happen
Ooh … let life happen

 

Encore

Well I knew you once in a dream we were a pair
Twice before in previous lives, encore
And our Saturday morning dates spread love through the
Sound waves of that FM stereo

We didn’t mind the second hand or how fast that
Clock would tick, tick n tock tick n tock
Well, I loved you then and I love you more everyday
Yeah I loved you then and I love you more everyday

And you were always the one I’d like to turn pages with
Each chapter pulls me in
Now hand in hand with you we stare life in the face
As we take our own pace

We didn’t mind the second hand or how fast that
Clock would tick, tick n tock tick n tock
Well, I loved you then and I love you more everyday
Yeah I loved you then and I love you more everyday

Everyday, I’ll love you everyday
Everday, I’ll show you everyday
That this love never fades away

We didn’t mind the second hand or how fast that
Clock would tick, tick n tock tick n tock
Well, I loved you then and I love you more everyday
Yeah I loved you then and I love you more everyday

Well I knew you once in a dream we were a pair
Twice before in previous lives, encore

 

Read My Lips
A whisper is louder than a scream
As if you had to say anything
Oh the prices we could pay
So we’ll keep this all hid away

Oh but you speak, you speak my language
You’re the only one who speaks it, too
So in that case, the message is safe
You can read my lips

We part ways, the role of strangers
Some may say, it’s unhealthy behavior
But they can’t see past our disguise
Yeah cause they can’t read our minds

Oh and you speak, you speak my language
You’re the only one who speaks it, too
So in that case, the message is safe
You can read my lips

The worst love is this fenced feeling
As we walk our own paths of life
Watching, caring from a distance
Knowing you’re the one

Oh yeah you speak, you speak my language
You’re the only one who speaks it, too
So in that case, the message is safe
You can read my lips
Oh read my lips
Please read my lips

 

The Investment

Places, places please
In the first scene
Where they meet
They pause, spending time
Investing time, time
The beauty of the new

Now turn to scene two
Courses collide
Living in lies
For what would be the point
Of a story without a fight
Without two sides of the story to tell

The last act takes place afront the curtain
A monologue
lonely ranting
This is the hour where solitude’s found
The deadly convention
Has fleeted away, all’s quiet now

 

Make Believe

Meet you on Maui’s shore at noon
Then foggy London town at three in the afternoon
We’ll travel wide on our gondola
Rain or shine, it’s happy wherever we are

So let’s pretend
Let’s just make believe
Let’s pretend
That our secret never ends

We’ll take a hike along the great, great wall
Then jump on in to swim in Niagra Falls
Admire life grazing green grasslands
And count the stars upon the dessert sand

Let’s pretend
Let’s just make believe
Let’s pretend
That our secret never ends
We make believe

And I’ve got no worries on my mind
This life’s our playground, relax, enjoy the ride…

And let’s pretend
Let’s just make believe
Let’s pretend
That our secret never ends
We make believe, we make believe
We make believe, we make believe
