LYRICS


Borderline

I’ve been doing things
I thought impossible
I didn’t notice it at first
felt like getting flu

sweat was running down
it felt my heart would burst

took you by surprise
when I took your hand
and said that it would pass
but my foolish lies
are the only things
turn out not to last

won’t you take me down to the borderline
and when I run catch me if you can
won’t you take me down to the end of time
and when I fall catch me if you can

I’ve been waiting here
for your lights to die
slip back into my night
never felt so dear
took me for a ride
and found a heart inside


Old Fashioned

Call me old fashioned, I’m telling you now
I am leaving, it’s better to go
though I would love to do all that you say
call me old fashioned, I’ll be on my way

don’t try to make me
it ‘ll just lead to pain
and your trying, believe me, is in vain
though I would love to do all you suggest
don’t try to make me, to leave would be best

you can laugh in my face, you can beg on your knees
I’ll be like stone to your woes and your pleas
call me a liar and call me a tease
still I leave, so please...

I’m into trouble if I give in to this
when it gets harder to simply resist
for I do love all the things that you do
I’m into trouble if I give in to you

you can scream all you like
reason softly and sweet
try to convince me of things I don’t need
promise to love me like no one before
I’m for the door!

coz I’m old fashioned and I stick to my vow
that’s why I’m leaving, God only knows how
for I do love all the things that you say
I’m old fashioned and I stick to my vow
that’s why I’m leaving, God only knows how
for I do love all the things that you say
but I’m old fashioned
I’m old fashioned
I’m old fashioned, I should be on my way


Consolation

What if I could just be there
without trying too hard
to have someone to love me
when I don't play my part

I don't need consolation
I just need somewhere to hide

your arms could give me shelter
when is weary my heart
I would love you forever
If I knew where to start

I don't need consolation
I just need somewhere to hide

looking up to the sky
I see specs of blue.
give me time and I’ll try
to stay here with you

I would love you forever
If I knew where to start

I don't need consolation
I just need somewhere to hide
I don’t need consolation
I just need somewhere to hide
somewhere to hide
somewhere


She can’t sleep

All the love you have inside
making crooked straight, wrong right
it can be so bittersweet

she can’t sleep

moving fast or sliding slow
where it goes nobody knows
it can freeze you with it’s heat

she can’t sleep

oh isn’t love to strive for?
makes you wanna live and die for?

if you wait it might be gone
you’ll be dreaming on your own
it can seem all that you need

she can’t sleep



Mercy

Children running in the playground
laughing loud make me wonder why
all those happy loving couples
holding hands only make me cry

my, have mercy

my heart can only break once

I wake each morning

singing one of my favorite songs



I watch my lover when he's sleeping
try to see if I'm still in his heart

tears fall on my empty pillow

there's no ending once the crying starts


my, have mercy

my heart can only break twice

I pray each morning

let me stay in my sweet paradise



cold rain falls on my face

washing tears away

cold, cold tears



the thought of losing all my loved ones
made me weep when I couldn't sleep
now its seems that my own leaving
hurts as much, it cuts as deep

my, have mercy

how many times can my aching heart break?
I cry have mercy

It's so much more than I can take

I cry have mercy

I'm asleep, and I don't want to wake


Ponderosa

As the sun turns big and red
I look at my door
shadows growing longer
deceive my heart and eyes

will I wait much longer now
see if he comes in once more
each time I hear footsteps
they just pass me by

wait by my door
but who’s to come through there?
my love has left long ago

on the day he said goodbye
I planted a seed
and it’s flock grew hard but now
it’s covered by the weed

wait by my door
but who’s to come through there?
my love has left long ago

now the moon is high and round
all is like before
my heart aches the night has come
and I close my eyes

my heart aches the night has come
and I close my eyes


Ophelia

Ophelia sings songs and speaks her heart
her love’s estranged from her, all seems dark
she’s lost her sense of time, it slips like water flows
falling from her eyes as she goes

Ophelia
walks by the water
walks by the water
waterside

she feels a fool to not know what’s gone wrong with bliss
slowly drifting off like when they kissed
she’s lost her heart, it floats the way the river goes
falling from her eyes, water flows

Ophelia
walks by the water
walks by the water
waterside


Waiting for a Change

I’m waiting for a change
the rain has gone, the clouds
that hung so low
I wonder where I’ll be
and if I’ll ever know

I’m hoping for a change
I’ve waited for this feeling
for so long
I wonder where I’ll be
when everything has gone

every answer is there already
if I’d only listen, but I’m
too far away
and I’m trying to stay
but I’m falling up into the sky

I’m changing I can see
the rain has gone
the clouds that hung so low
the sunlight on my face
and I still need to know

every answer is there already
if I’d only listen, but I’m
too far away
and I’m trying to stay
but I’m falling up into the sky
leaving is not what it seems
leaving


Wasting time

All of these times
moments wasted
wondering what to do
should have gone out
should have stayed in
should have made a choice or two
should I go left?
should I go right?
should I go straight ahead?
maybe sit down and consider my options
or even retrace my steps?

all these times we choose
all these tracks to lose

waiting in line for something to happen
doesn’t seem to be the way
so I end up lying in my bed
looking back at a fruitless day
should have gone left
should have gone right
should have gone straight ahead
if only I would know what follows on each choice
it wouldn’t drive me half mad

all these times we choose
all these tracks to lose
which way leads to news

when you’re trying to see the end of the line
you’re wasting your time

all of these times
moments wasted
wondering what to do
should have gone out
should have stayed in
should have made a choice or two
should have gone left
should have gone right
should have go straight ahead
maybe sit down and consider my options
even retrace my steps?


Song for M

Can you hear me

when you’re lying in your bed,

won’t you take some good advice from a friend?

though you think you look so cool
you are just somebody’s fool

doing everything they tell you to do

don’t cry
when the curtain falls

and your friends have left and no one seems to care

though you think you look so well

you are just an empty shell

at the mercy of your fairweather friends

don’t cry
when the curtain falls

and you’re lying in your bed staring at the walls
so you try

to understand just why

all your friends have left and no one seems to care

can you hear me

when you’re lying in your bed

and you think that all the world’s just for you
yes you think that all the world’s just for you


Bye bye

Twenty years seems a very long time
now I’m gonna do something that’s mine
so bye bye
baby, bye bye

you say it’ll pass if I wait
I’ve got to move now before it’s too late
oh my
baby, bye bye

people say I don’t see what I got
I keep looking at what I have not
hear me out I am ready to fly
I’m spreading my wings
baby, goodbye

you say what I’m doing is brave
but you don’t understand the way I behave
I cry
waving goodbye

I’m flying high don’t know where I will land
it’s a beginning though I say it’s the end
I fly so high

people say I don’t see what I got
but I keep looking at what I have not
hear me out I am ready to fly
I’m spreading my wings
baby, goodbye
